Chapter 152: Parting
Late at night, the moonlight shone down like thin veil silk covering the forest.
In the darkness, Chen Beixuan opened his eyes. His eyes were blood-red as he looked at the sleeping Qin Jue not far away with a cold killing intent.
“Should I just kill him?”
Chen Beixuan fell into deep thought.
At this moment, everything was completely silent. Qin Jue was lying on a rock sleeping, and Su Yan was also cultivating. It was obvious that the two of them wouldn’t wake up for a while. It was the best time to make a move.
Not only did Qin Jue barge into his residence, but he also roasted the phoenix that he had kept for more than ten years. How could Chen Beixuan tolerate this?
However, his intuition told him that once he made a move, what awaited him was very likely death.
After some thought, Chen Beixuan slowly stood up and silently walked towards Qin Jue.
However, the closer he got to Qin Jue, the stronger his sense of death became. In the end, he couldn’t help but tremble slightly!
“How could this be?”
Chen Beixuan was shocked.
He was Chen Beixuan and had never been afraid of any opponent. How could he be so frightened by a youth?!
Chen Beixuan believed that he was invincible among his peers. With his secret technique, as long as the sneak attack landed successfully, even if the other party was at the Legendary Stage, his chances of winning would be as high as 70%!
However, as Chen Beixuan raised his arm and was about to attack, the intense sense of danger finally reached its peak. His legs trembled and he almost knelt on the ground!
Chen Beixuan took a deep breath and tried to calm down, but it was useless. He could not control his spirit energy and almost exploded.
In an instant, Chen Beixuan’s expression changed continuously. Finally, he let out a turbid breath and turned around to return to his resting place. He then sat cross-legged and continued to cultivate.
Yes, he had given up.
“What realm is this person at? How can he be so terrifying?”
Chen Beixuan was secretly shocked.
It had to be known that Chen Beixuan’s intuition had helped him escape from his enemies many times.
However, Chen Beixuan never expected that Qin Jue could make him so afraid just by lying there and sleeping. It was simply inconceivable.
When Chen Beixuan entered his cultivation state again, Qin Jue, who was lying not far away, suddenly opened his eyes. He looked at Chen Beixuan and then closed them again.
If Chen Beixuan had really attacked him just now, then Chen Beixuan would have died before Shi Tian could take revenge.
Although Qin Jue didn’t want to be nosy, it didn’t mean that he would pretend that nothing had happened when he was ambushed.
However, from the looks of it, Chen Beixuan was indeed someone with the aura of a main character. He had sensed the danger in advance and stopped in time to save his life.
Otherwise, just the backlash alone would be enough to kill him.
The next day, sunlight passed through the leaves and dotted the ground.
Qin Jue stretched lazily and faintly woke up.
At the same time, Chen Beixuan had also ended his cultivation and was sitting in his original spot with a depressed expression. He was rather sad.
As the saying went: “the more you try to resist your anger, the more angry you get”.
After a night, Chen Beixuan suddenly felt extremely regretful. He felt that he should have done it last night.
What if he succeeded?
“What are you thinking about?”
Qin Jue said meaningfully.
Chen Beixuan shook his head.
Chen Beixuan might have thought of ambushing Qin Jue when he was asleep, but when he was awake, especially after witnessing the Qin Jue’s strength, Chen Beixuan absolutely didn’t dare to.
Qin Jue didn’t ask further. How could he not tell what Chen Beixuan was thinking? He just couldn’t be bothered to expose him.
No matter what, this was still a person with the aura of a main character. Qin Jue still wanted to see the scene of him and Shi Tian fighting.
“Thank you for your ‘hospitality.’ We should go.”
Qin Jue put Yun Xi on his shoulder and smiled.
Hearing this, the corner of Chen Beixuan’s eyes twitched slightly. He almost couldn’t help but rush up to hit Qin Jue.
In this half a month, Qin Jue had almost traveled half of the entire Sacred Land of the Central Continent. It was about time for him to return to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. Otherwise, if too much time passed, who knew what would happen to the sect?
He just didn’t know if Bai Ye would still be alive when he returned. Would he have already been dismembered by Ye Yao and Yan Xi?
Wait, there should be more than just those. Maybe even a dozen?
Watching Qin Jue and Su Yan leave, Chen Beixuan secretly swore in his heart that he would one day become the most powerful person in the Spirit Central World. When that day comes, he will find Qin Jue and take revenge by eating Qin Jue’s pet!
In the following days, Qin Jue and Su Yan continued to advance. Apart from occasionally resting in a city, they basically didn’t encounter anything special.
Just like that, five days passed, and the two of them returned to the outer perimeter of the Death Spirit Valley.
During this time, Qin Jue went to Dark Moon City and found that Yan Xiu had already advanced to the Heaven Stage with the help of his spirit energy and had become the new City Lord of Dark Moon City.
That’s right. When he revived Yan Xiu back then, Qin Jue had deliberately stored a strand of spirit energy in Yan Xiu’s Essence Soul.
As Yan Xiu cultivated, the spirit energy would gradually fuse into his limbs and bones until he stepped into the Supreme Stage.
As for Lu Qinghou’s collusion with the Spirit Clan and the stolen souls of cultivators, no one knew anything about it. Naturally, everyone also didn’t know where Lu Qinghou had “gone”.
Yan Xiu might have guessed, but he was still uncertain. After all, Lu Qinghou was his savior. Unless there was concrete evidence, Yan Xiu wasn’t willing to let his suspicions take over.
Before leaving, Qin Jue also left Yan Xiu dozens of pots of hundred-year-old spirit wine as gifts.
Strictly speaking, Yan Xiu should be the only “friend” he made on this trip. Qin Jue had always been very generous to his friends.
If it weren’t for Yan Xiu’s low cultivation and his inability to drink spirit wine that was too old, Qin Jue wouldn’t have given him thousand-year-old spirit wine instead.
Another day passed, and the two of them easily passed through the Death Spirit Valley and arrived in the Southern Land.
Because Qin Jue had previously hunted here, there were almost no fiend beasts above the Heaven Stage in the current Death Spirit Valley. In other words, for the time being, the fiend beasts would no longer pose any threat to the Southern Land forces.
And it was finally time for Qin Jue and Su Yan to part.
“Senior, can I know where you live? I absolutely won’t tell anyone.”
After hesitating for a long time, Su Yan could not help but ask.
After more than a month of contact, perhaps even Su Yan herself didn’t realize that she had already developed an inexplicable sense of reliance on Qin Jue.
In this trip, Su Yan had felt extremely secure by Qin Jue’s side, as if she had nothing to fear as long as they were together. Su Yan had never felt such emotions before.
This was because from the moment she became the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect, she had been under all kinds of pressure. Especially after the death of Patriarch Thunder Breeze, she had become the hope to revive the Thunder Breeze Sect.
The experience of the past month had made her feel very relaxed, so much so that she wished she could be with Qin Jue forever.
“I live in the Xuanyi Mountain…”
Qin Jue answered casually.
“Xuanyi Mountain Sect… If I have the time, can I go and visit you?”
Qin Jue nodded.
Su Yan’s eyes lit up. “Then it’s settled.”
