“Hello, my name is Luo Weiwei.”
“Hello, my name is Su Yan.”
“Sister is so beautiful.”
“Hehe, actually, I’m not that old. Just call me Su Yan.”
“Really? You must be older than me.”
Su Yan and Luo Weiwei chatted happily.
But for some reason, Qin Jue felt that the two of them seemed to be opposing each other. Was it an illusion?
Qin Jue reassured himself and thought that he was probably overthinking. After all, this should be the first time the two of them had met, so why would two girls without enmity oppose each other?
“Senior, the food is ready. Come and eat.”
Su Yan waved her hand.
Qin Jue regained his senses and nodded.
“Would you like some?” Su Yan turned around and said to Luo Weiwei.
“No need. I still need to cultivate.” Luo Weiwei refused expressionlessly.
“That’s a shame.”
Su Yan sighed.
With a cold snort, Luo Weiwei flew up and sat cross-legged on the blue stone beside her. She quickly entered a cultivation state and ignored Su Yan.
Witnessing this scene, Qin Jue’s face darkened. As expected, he hadn’t been overthinking.
Women were indeed strange creatures.
At this moment, the husky, who had smelled the fragrance, ran over from afar. When it saw Su Yan, it immediately crouched down obediently, rolled over, and stuck out its tongue, looking like it would let Su Yan pet it however she wanted.
The husky had been bought over with just a single meal.
It seemed to no longer care about its dignity as a fiend beast.
“Hahaha, don’t worry. I made a lot today. You can eat as much as you want.”
Su Yan rubbed the husky’s chin and smiled.
Hearing this, the husky’s eyes lit up. It immediately rubbed against Su Yan happily, wishing it could crawl into her arms.
Qin Jue :”…”
“Me too, me too!”
Yun Xi flew over from afar and landed on the table filled with food, drooling.
Qin Jue :”…”
His disciples and pets seemed to have all been bought over by Su Yan.
A moment later, the man, the beast, and the weed all burped in satisfaction. After that, they all lay on the ground and slept.
As for Su Yan, she had no choice but to leave temporarily because something had happened in her sect. Before she left, she deliberately looked at Luo Weiwei, who was still cultivating. After confirming that the other party was not paying attention, she circulated her spirit energy and passed through the teleportation passageway.
After an unknown period of time, Qin Jue suddenly opened his eyes, frowning as he looked towards the horizon, as if he had seen something incredible.
“Uh… what’s wrong, Master?” Yun Xi asked in a daze when she noticed the commotion.
“Nothing. I need to go out for a while.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Qin Jue slowly stood up and was about to use his teleportation divine ability when Yun Xi suddenly hugged him. “Where is Master going? I want to go too!”
Qin Jue was speechless. “The place I want to go is very dangerous.”
“Liar! With Master around, how could it be dangerous!”
Yun Xi curled her lips and hugged Qin Jue tightly, unwilling to let go.
Although it sounded a bit embarrassing, Yun Xi was right.
“Alright, fine, I’ll bring you along.”
Qin Jue was helpless.
“Hehe, I knew Master wouldn’t leave me behind.”
“Remember, don’t run around when we get there, okay?” Qin Jue grabbed Yun Xi by her strand of hair and said sternly.
“I know, I definitely won’t run around.”
Yun Xi nodded repeatedly to display that she understood.
“By the way, Master, you still haven’t told me where we’re going.”
Qin Jue didn’t answer. Instead, his figure flashed and disappeared from his original spot.
On the other side, the husky raised its head in confusion. It looked confused as it wondered where everyone had gone.
A cold wind as sharp as a blade blew past. Even though winter had yet to come, this plain field was already exceptionally cold and was one step away from turning into a forbidden land that no one dared to approach.
Interestingly, from above, this plain field looked as though it had been cut in half. Half of it was extremely flat, but the other half was filled with potholes with criss-crossed ravines everywhere that looked like ugly scars. It was extremely sinister and terrifying.
This was also the place where the many Martial Dao factions in the Southern Land had fought the purple fiends and fiend beasts. Those pits and ravines were naturally left behind by Qin Jue’s fist and the gold-plated Gatling gun.
Further ahead was the border between the Southern Land and the Western Land. In the past, it had also been the place where the purple fiends had lived for 300 years. However, it had now been razed to the ground by Tian Jizi and had turned into ruins.
Accompanied by a violent spatial fluctuation spreading out, Qin Jue walked out from the void. He looked around with Yun Xi sitting on his shoulder.
“Hiss, it’s so cold.”
Yun Xi couldn’t help but shudder, and she hurriedly raised her protective spirit energy to resist the cold.
In reality, the cold environment wasn’t affecting her at all. After all, she was still an Earth Stage cultivator.
“Where is this?”
After setting up the barrier, Yun Xi looked around curiously.
“Ahem, come on out.” Qin Jue said indifferently.
Space distorted in front of him, and then a youth who looked exactly like Qin Jue appeared. He bowed. It was the incarnation Qin Jue had condensed with the Immortal Glazed Body.
Back then, because Zhang Jichen wanted to go out to train, Qin Jue had sent his incarnation out to secretly protect him.
It was precisely because he had received the news of the incarnation that Qin Jue had rushed over.
“Ah, two masters! Just like last time!”
Yun Xi was surprised.
“Why did you call for me?”
Qin Jue frowned.
“Zhang Jichen… has gone missing.” The incarnation said bitterly.
“What did you say?”
Qin Jue was stunned for a moment before his expression instantly became as cold as water. “What’s going on?”
With the strength of a Great Sage Stage expert, it was actually quite difficult for the incarnation to find a worthy opponent in the entire Spirit Central World. Apart from Long Zhen, no one could take away Zhang Jichen in front of him. However, they would never need to worry about that.
Qin Jue immediately realized that there must be another reason.
“I don’t know either. He suddenly disappeared after entering a cave and didn’t even leave any traces.” The incarnation paused and quickly explained the entire situation.
A day ago, Zhang Jichen had flown thousands of kilometers and arrived at this area to rest.
However, after entering a cave, he suddenly disappeared for no reason.
No matter how the incarnation searched, it could not find him. It even forcefully broke through space, but it could still not find any clues.
Left with no choice, the incarnation could only ask Qin Jue for help. Otherwise, the longer this dragged on, the more dangerous Zhang Jichen would be.
“Where is that cave?” Qin Jue pondered for a moment before asking.
Under the lead of his incarnation, Qin Jue quickly saw a pitch-black mountain peak that pierced into the sky.
Beside the mountain peak was a clearly visible giant palm print, as well as the remains of many buildings. This should have been where the Purple Demon Race cultivators lived. As for that palm print, it should have been Tian Jizi’s doing.
Before approaching, Qin Jue spread out his spirit sense to envelop the mountain peak.
Just as the incarnation had said, there were no spatial fluctuations within a thousand kilometers, and the cave was also empty. If it weren’t for Qin Jue’s powerful spirit sense, he probably wouldn’t have even been able to tell that Zhang Jichen had been here.
“How could this be?”
Qin Jue fell into deep thought..
