While Zhao Jiuge was asking Bai Qingqing the question, he didn’t know that a group of people had entered the canyon.
There were a total of six people, two women and four men.
The person walking in front was a young man wearing blue. He had a handsome face, a longsword on his back, and his aura was extraordinary.
However, his eyes were a bit dark. Although his handsome face was a bit childish, he gave off a very mature temperament.
Beside him was white-haired old man who seemed to be about 60 years old. The old man had the face of a child, and not only did his face not have any wrinkles, but his eyes occasionally shined.
This old man was wearing a purple robe and his hands were hanging inside his wide sleeves. Aside from a long, wooden hairpin in his long hair, he had no other ornaments on his body.
The two walking in the middle were a young girl and a beautiful middle-aged woman.
The girl also had an extraordinary aura, and her posture revealed her rich family background. She was wearing yellow clothes made of Heavenly Silk. It looked soft and gave off a faint flow on the surface. She had a white jade token filled with spirit force, and she also had a short flying sword on her back.
Her face was white and tender and her temperament was good. Her silk-like hair was coiled up high. Her eyes were filled with excitement while she looked around, and she was filled with curiosity about everything.
The beautiful middle-aged woman beside the young girl was wearing a pink, sleeveless dress, revealing her white arms. Her dress vaguely outlined her voluptuous body, especially her chest, which looked like two small mountains.
Although she looked like she was in her thirties, she gave off a powerful charm that would make your tongue dry up and want to stare at her.
She held a green jade flute in one hand, while her other hand held the young girl’s hand.
The two in the back were two middle-aged men. They looked similar, like brothers. Their faces were expressionless and they carefully observed their surroundings.
The two of them were wearing the exact same black clothes, they were both burly, and they both gave off fierce auras. The only difference was that the one on the left was slightly taller and thinner. He had a large, blood-colored blade in his hand, and there was a faint mist of blood surrounding the blade.
The one on the right was slightly shorter but more burly. He had a large, golden blade in his hand, and it shined under the sunlight.
“Aunt Tao why are we still not there yet? I can’t wait anymore.” The girl in yellow seems to be pouting and shaking the hand of the beautiful middle-aged woman.
“Miss, we are almost there. Some time ago, we found the Blue Thunder Rage Lion here in the canyon. Since you and the young master just broke through, you can practice with the Blue Thunder Rage Lion.” The beautiful woman in pink smiled.
Hearing this, the girl became even more urgent, like a young sparrow waiting to spread her wings.
“Hehe, Miss is a bit anxious. Soon, you will be very busy.” The old man in purple smiled kindly. If not for his childish appearance, he would look like an ordinary old man. However, he had smooth skin like a teenager at his age—how could people not find it strange?
The handsome young man wearing blue with a longsword behind his back smiled and said, “Junior Sister Ting, I won’t make a move later. I want to see how capable you are!”
The girl wrinkled her nose and raised her tender hand into a fist. The meaning was self-evident.
From beginning to end, the two burly middle-aged men didn’t say a sword. They quietly followed and observed the surroundings.
The group of people talked and laughed as they entered the Profound Thunder Canyon.
All six of them were from the branch family of the Qing Providence’s Liu family. The young girl and young man were descendents of the Liu branch family.
The man was named Liu Yan and the girl was named Liu Ting.
As for the purple-clothed old man, he was an elder of the Liu branch family, Liu Yen.
The beautiful middle-aged woman was a guest of someone in the Liu family, Aunt Tao.
The last two middle-aged men were two cultivators who worked for the Liu family. The taller one was the big brother, Gao Li, and the more burly one was the younger brother, Gao Qiang.
This place was the border between the Qing Providence and the Xuan Providence. The only reason they had come to the Profound Thunder Canyon was because Liu Yan and Liu Ting had broken through to the late stage of the Foundation Realm and the mid stage of the Foundation Realm respectively.
A while ago, they found a late stage Foundation Realm Blue Thunder Rage Lion, so they had brought their young master and young lady here to gain some combat experience.
The Qing Providence’s Liu family could be considered a big cultivation family. Even though these people were part of a branch family, they still had a large number of people protecting the young master and young lady.
In the Absolute Slaughter Spirit Vein.
After Zhao Jiuge asked, Bai Qingqing patiently pointed her tender, white finger at the slaughter aura and said, “Because of this slaughter aura. If you absorb it, I’m afraid you will not be able to control it, and it will affect your mind like the Blue Thunder Rage Lion.”
Zhao Jiuge’s eyes widened and he angrily said, “Then doesn’t that mean I found a spirit vein but can only look at its power and not use it for myself?”
Bai Qingqing felt helpless and angrily said, “When are you going to change your impatient personality?”
Then she continued, “Naturally, we shouldn’t waste a rare spirit vein like this. I mean for you to come back later with a senior after you enter the inner sect. With a senior protecting you, your safety will be guaranteed. It's to ensure that there are no accidents. Do you understand?”
Bai Qingqing carefully explained. She knew more about this than Zhao Jiuge, and she would not take unnecessary risks.
Zhao Jiuge suddenly nodded and then asked, “We can’t take the spirit vein with us. What if someone else finds it?”
After he finished speaking, he stared at Bai Qingqing, waiting for her response. His knowledge was lacking, so he had to seek Bai Qingqing’s opinion.
Hearing Zhao Jiuge’s question, Bai Qingqing became silent and her brows furrowed for a while. There was a flash of light in her eyes. “Didn’t you get that illusion formation from Yellow Flower Ridge? Arrange it at the entrance to the cave, then no one will find the entrance aside from those powerful seniors who can feel the spirit force fluctuations of the formation.”
Zhao Jiuge’s eyes also lit up. If Bai Qingqing hadn’t reminded him, he would have forgotten. He was originally going to buy information about the illusion formation from the Treasure Pavilion, but the matter of refining his armor had made him forget.
“Okay, let me gather the things up and we can head out.” While Zhao Jiue spoke, he arrived before the Blue Thunder Rage Lion.
There was a flash of light that covered the entire Blue Thunder Rage Lion, and it was put inside his storage ring.
After everything was packed up, the two of them left on the same path they came from, but their mood was completely different from before. Zhao Jiuge felt very happy, as he came back with a large harvest after every trip they went on. Not only had he obtained an inner core, he also had a spirit vein to improve his spirit force. Zhao Jiuge’s heart was filled with joy and he would occasionally giggle. Seeing this, Bai Qingqing found it infuriating and funny at the same time.
After the two of them arrived at the mouth of the cave, Zhao Jiuge took out the formation disk and flags without Bai Qingqing saying anything. Bai Qingqing held the Wind Flower Sword and coldly observed.
The proud Zhao Jiuge took them out and then realized he didn’t know how to place the illusion formation. He felt a bit embarrassed and looked at Bai Qingqing, seeking help.
Seeing Zhao Jiuge like this, Bai Qingqing revealed a playful smile.
She quickly took the things from Zhao Jiuge’s hands and then injected spirit force inside the flags. She threw them near the opening of the cave and then held the formation disk. After injecting spirit force inside, a burst of light shot out of the disk.
Bai Qingqing let out a shout and threw the formation disk at a certain location. The scenery before the mouth of the cave suddenly changed, and the illusion formation appeared.
Bai Qingqing was proficient in a vast array of knowledge, so such a simple illusion formation was naturally no trouble for her. Zhao Jiuge looked at her with an envious gaze.
After everything was done, the two of them walked toward the exit of the canyon to head back to the sect to hand in the mission.
But before the two of them had walked out more than 100 feet, they encountered four men and two women walking toward them.
The two groups met by chance, and both sides had come for the Blue Thunder Rage Lion. However, one group had just arrived, while the other had completed the mission and was ready to leave.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
