Because Bai Ye had been seriously injured by the explosion, he was unable to participate in the Brilliance City Banquet two days later. In the end, Qin Jue could only participate in his place.
Although he was very unwilling, Qin Jue had no choice.
He was the one who started it all.
Before he left, Qin Jue deliberately greeted Luo Weiwei and Yun Xi, especially Yun Xi. As its level increased, Yun Xi had already become a level two spirit herb that even Earth Stage cultivators would covet.
To be safe, Qin Jue set up a restriction at the cliff to prevent anyone from harming Yun Xi while he was away.
Even a Great Sage wouldn’t be able to break through this restriction.
“This is the invitation card they gave me. Take this and enter Brilliance City. Someone will naturally take you to the designated place. Remember, you must not embarrass our Xuanyi Mountain Sect.”
Bai Ye’s face was pale. He took out a jade tablet from his chest pocket and handed it to Qin Jue.
In fact, with Qin Jue’s cultivation, he could completely heal Bai Ye’s injuries in an instant, but Bai Ye was unwilling to let him do that no matter what, declaring that this was the opportunity for him to break through in advance and that he had to grasp it well.
Qin Jue was helpless and could only give up.
Taking the jade tablet, Qin Jue sighed and said, “I can promise you that I’ll go to Brilliance City to participate in the banquet, but why do I have to bring it along?”
The “it” Qin Jue was referring to was the infatuated Tam with its tongue stretched out beside him.
“I want it to see the world.”
Bai Ye said righteously, “Moreover, it is a fiend beast now. If it stays here for too long, it might go crazy. It also needs to go out and relax.”
Qin Jue :”…”
What kind of a reason is that?
“Sigh, if I had known earlier, I would have set up the barrier to be even smaller.”
“What did you say?”
“No, nothing. We’re leaving.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Qin Jue directly used his teleportation divine ability and disappeared from his original spot with Tam.
“Why are you in such a hurry? You haven’t even taken the medicinal pills I refined with you.”
Southern Land, Brilliance City…
As the headquarters of one of the Seven Great Clans, Brilliance City was extremely prosperous, and a large number of cultivators had gathered there.
In this world where the strong preyed on the weak, the more cultivators there were, the more cultivation resources and opportunities there would be. Brilliance City was no exception.
This was especially true after the Wei Clan was destroyed. Countless forces had rushed like ducks, fighting to get a piece of the pie. It could be said that a storm was brewing, and it only gradually calmed down when the Six Great Clans interfered some time ago.
As everyone knew, due to the Plain Field War not long ago, the Six Great Clans had suffered heavy losses. Among them, the Yun, Wang, and Hu Clans had each lost a Supreme Stage expert. Even though the Archaic Mysteries Sect had given them quite a bit of compensation, it was still a drop in the bucket.
Therefore, to them, the most important thing now was cultivation resources. This was also the reason why the Six Great Clans no longer stayed behind the scenes and did things directly.
Whoever could snatch more resources from Brilliance City would be able to reduce the losses as much as possible.
After an intense battle, the Six Great Clans finally reached an agreement. The Yin Clan, Yan Clan, and Zhou Clan each took 20%, while the Yun Clan, Wang Clan, and Hu Clan each took 10%.
As for the remaining 10%, it would be left to the other factions in Brilliance City. After all, besides the Wei Clan, there were many other Martial Dao factions in Brilliance City.
Although they were also part of the Six Great Clans, the Yun, Wang, and Hu Clans had lost a Supreme Stage expert and were now weaker, so they had no choice but to agree.
As for this banquet, it was actually just an excuse for the experts stationed in Brilliance City by the Six Great Clans to get to know the powers within a five-thousand-kilometer radius. Then, they would jointly establish a rich, democratic, civilized, harmonious… Martial Dao society.
Facing the Six Great Clans, the small forces that usually ruled over the region naturally didn’t dare to disobey. After receiving the invitation, they rushed over as soon as possible. In comparison, Qin Jue should be the last one to arrive.
Gazing at the thousand-foot high city wall in front of him, Qin Jue sighed with emotion. “I didn’t notice it when I came here last time. What a big city.”
Last time, Qin Jue had come here completely to destroy the Wei Clan, so he didn’t care about the surrounding environment. Now that he looked carefully, he couldn’t help but be in awe.
Standing next to Qin Jue, Tam slowly read out the name of Brilliance City. Although Qin Jue had already erased his memories of the Wuji Saint, Tam had still inherited part of the Wuji Saint’s intelligence and cultivation. Therefore, it could recognize the words of humans. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been able to instantly step into the Heaven Stage.
“Okay, let’s go inside.”
“Stop. You have to pay one tael for entering the city.”
The cultivators outside the city gate stretched out their hands to stop Qin Jue.
Qin Jue didn’t speak but took out a jade tablet from his storage ring.
Upon seeing the jade tablet, the expression of the cultivator in the lead changed slightly. He immediately made way. “Sorry, you can enter.”
“Oh, this is my pet.”
Qin Jue pointed at Tam behind him.
“It can enter too.”
The leading cultivator hurriedly said.
Although these factions that were participating in the gathering were nothing compared to the Six Great Clans, their status still made it very easy to deal with such guards. As long as one wasn’t an idiot, no one would jump out to make things difficult for members of the participating factions and court death.
“Gentlemen, follow me.”
As soon as Qin Jue stepped foot into Brilliance City, someone approached him.
Qin Jue sized it up slightly. It was actually an Earth Stage cultivator.
Under the lead of this Earth Stage cultivator, Qin Jue and Tam quickly arrived at a courtyard in the middle of the city. From afar, Qin Jue could feel the aura of many cultivators.
This courtyard had more than ten rooms. Not only was it very spacious, but the spirit qi was also very dense. It was most likely specially used to welcome the leaders of the other factions.
“Which faction are you from?”
The Earth Stage cultivator asked in a low voice.
“I’m from Xuanyi Mountain…”
Qin Jue answered casually.
Hearing this name, the Earth Stage cultivator was slightly surprised. He remembered that the sect master of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was a sage-like old man, right? Why was it a youth?
As if seeing the other party’s confusion, Qin Jue explained, “My senior brother is temporarily unable to leave due to personal reasons, so I replaced him to attend this banquet.”
The Earth Stage cultivator nodded and pointed to a room in the corner of the courtyard. “You guys can stay there first.”
Upon hearing that the other party was not the sect master of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect, the attitude of the Earth Stage cultivator immediately became much colder. He had actually only sent a brat over. He simply did not put them in his eyes.
Qin Jue didn’t care about this. He was only here to be a bystander anyway, so why would he care what an Earth Stage ant thought?
Right at this moment, the door to the room beside him suddenly opened, and a young girl with two ponytails walked out.
After seeing Qin Jue, the girl was slightly stunned. She couldn’t help but think: So handsome!
“Xiaoyu, why are you standing at the door? Hurry up and leave.”
An impatient voice sounded from behind the girl.
“Senior Sister, look, this person is so handsome.”
Xiao Yu’s eyes were filled with stars as she shouted.
Qin Jue :”…”
Hai, guess it can’t be helped. I’m too handsome, after all.
