Chapter 95: The Banquet Begins
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
After returning to his residence, Qin Jue lazily lay down. The banquet was about to begin tonight. Before that, he wanted to sleep a little more so that he would be spirited.
As for Tang Xiao and Ye Yao, Qin Jue didn’t see them. They should be cultivating. They weren’t as leisurely as Qin Jue.
“Uncle-Master Qin, I think…”
“No, you don’t get to think.”
Qin Jue interrupted Tam with a wave of his hand, closed his eyes, and fell into a deep sleep.
Tam was speechless.
After an unknown period of time, Tam couldn’t hold back anymore and wanted to go out and walk around. However, just as it walked to the door, it realized that there was a layer of restriction. Clearly, Qin Jue had already made preparations.
Tam liked to lick people and also had the strength of an early-phase Heaven Stage cultivator. Apart from the several great clans and the leaders of the various forces, almost no one could defeat it. If it was released, it might cause some trouble, so Qin Jue naturally wouldn’t let it go.
Although Tam was very unhappy in his heart, Tam didn’t dare to have any other thoughts. After all, it had inherited the strength and intelligence of the Wuji Saint. Although Qin Jue had erased the memories of the Wuji Saint, Tam still had an innate fear for him, just like how humans would fear a god.
Time flew by, and night soon arrived. The sun set, and starlight appeared. From Brilliance City, one could clearly see the huge moon in the sky.
Dong dong dong.
The night wind was slightly cold, and a gentle bell sounded, indicating that the banquet was about to begin.
As if he was aware of all this, Qin Jue instantly opened his eyes.
Qin Jue stretched lazily and pushed open the door.
At the same time, the other cultivators in the courtyard also walked out. These people were the leaders of the factions within a radius of 5,000 kilometers.
Qin Jue’s appearance in the courtyard attracted many gazes. After all, Qin Jue had refined a perfected grade four medicinal pill yesterday. Even the Six Great Clans had tried their best to rope him in.
Mu Xiaoyu shouted happily.
Because she knew that Qin Jue was Bai Ye’s junior brother, Ye Yao made her two disciples call him Uncle-Master.
Qin Jue nodded and casually asked, “Where will the banquet be held?”
“Haha, I didn’t expect you to be like your senior brother,” Ye Yao covered her mouth and laughed.
Qin Jue :”…”
“Let’s go together.”
As she spoke, Ye Yao walked out of the courtyard first.
Qin Jue was helpless and could only follow behind.
Seeing this, the other cultivators also walked towards the place where the banquet was being held. Only now did Qin Jue realize that the forces invited by the Six Great Clans were not limited to this courtyard. As far as the eye could see, there were several hundred people.
What surprised Qin Jue even more was that the banquet was being held on an air-transportation spirit artifact!
The air-transportation spirit artifact was extremely huge, comparable to a palace. White jade covered the ground, and the lights were dazzling. There were even artificial mountains and rivers inside, making the place look like a paradise.
If they hadn’t seen it with their own eyes, no one would believe that this was an air-transportation spirit artifact.
What was worth mentioning was that this air-transportation spirit artifact was originally the Wei Clan’s property, but it had now become the Yan Clan’s property.
Several hundred cultivators boarded the air-transportation spirit artifact under the guidance of an expert from the Yan Clan. Spirit wine and delicacies had already been prepared on it, and it emitted a dense fragrance. There were also many beautiful female attendants.
If it was in the past, Qin Jue might have impatiently rushed over to pick up the wine pot and drink to his heart’s content, but now, he had even drunk two thousand-year-old spirit wines, so why would he care about these several dozen-year-old spirit wines?
“Sect masters, how have you been?”
On the high platform, the elders of the Six Great Clans were high and mighty. Their voices spread to every corner of the air-transportation spirit artifact. “Today, our Six Great Clans have invited you all to participate in the banquet not because we want you to submit to us, but because we want to establish a rich, harmonious, and civilized Martial Dao society with you all.”
“I hope everyone can cooperate and not make things difficult for us.”
Hearing this, everyone looked at each other and immediately shouted in unison, “Elder, don’t worry, we will definitely cooperate!”
Qin Jue :”…”
Was this really a banquet?
Something felt wrong.
Why did it feel as though the elders were higher-up officials visiting some commoner folks?
The six elders nodded in satisfaction. “There are many delicacies and spirit wines here. You can enjoy them as you wish. All the factions that have come to participate in this banquet are our friends.”
In other words, the factions that did not attend the banquet were all enemies.
However, other than those small factions whose ranks were too low and who did not receive an invitation, all the other sects and factions that could be named had basically all arrived.
After the opening speech was over, the six elders flew down from the platform. They had just entered Brilliance City and were holding a banquet to get to know the leaders of the nearby factions. Of course, they wouldn’t suddenly announce some strange requests.
At this moment, Qin Jue was standing in a corner leisurely drinking spirit wine. Beside him were Liu Ping and Mu Xiaoyu. As for Ye Yao, she was talking to the leaders of the other factions.
This was also why Qin Jue was unwilling to participate in such activities. He couldn’t even be bothered to attend the internal meeting of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect because once he appeared often, there would inevitably be all kinds of small talk.
At this moment, Qin Jue suddenly saw a cultivator pointing in his direction. Then the elders of the Six Great Clans who were standing on the platform before suddenly walked straight towards him at an incomparably fast speed, afraid that others would beat them to it.
In an instant, Qin Jue recalled the matter of him refining a perfected grade four medicinal pill yesterday.
“Hai, I can’t believe I forgot about that.”
Qin Jue sighed helplessly.
Originally, he only wanted to try refining some pills. He didn’t expect it to cause such a huge commotion. Now, it seemed like he was very likely to be entangled by the Six Great Clans. Just thinking about it gave him a headache.
He had no choice but to use that move.
Thinking of this, Qin Jue took a sip of spirit wine. Just as the elders of the Six Great Clans were about to approach, he slowly raised his palm.
In the next moment, golden light bloomed. It was like a sun had risen in the night, illuminating the heavens and the earth as if it were daytime. It quickly spread out, instantly enveloping the entire Brilliance City.
In an instant, everyone seemed to have been frozen in place as if they had been cast by a Fixed Body Art. Time stopped for a moment, and then specks of strange spirit energy appeared on Qin Jue’s fingertips, sweeping through the entire Brilliance City.
When the golden light dissipated, everything returned to normal, as if nothing had happened.
“Hmm? What was I trying to do?”
Hu Yao blinked his eyes in confusion.
The other elders were also dumbfounded. They suddenly forgot what they were doing and had an expression as if they were wondering who they were and where they were.
That’s right. Qin Jue had tampered with their memories just now. To be precise, he had erased all their memories of him refining a perfected grade four medicinal pill.
It wasn’t just them. All the cultivators present, including the people from Brilliance City, had their memories erased without exception.
In other words, everyone no longer knew that he had refined a perfected grade four pill now, but Qin Jue hadn’t erased everything about him. The others still remembered who he was.
If it weren’t for the fact that this matter might very well affect his future life, Qin Jue wouldn’t have used this divine ability to forcefully alter everyone’s memories.
This was also because if Qin Jue cast this divine power too many times, the people whose memories he wiped might turn into idiots…
