Chapter 13: Mysterious Beast, The Sect Master’s Missing

Translator: Atlas Studios  Editor: Atlas Studios

Before returning to his cave abode, Han Jue first inherited the Seven Illusionary Steps.

He had to strengthen himself first to prevent any mishaps.

[Unparalleled Movement Technique: Top-notch movement technique aptitude]

With this connate providence, Han Jue completely grasped the Seven Illusionary Steps in two hours.

There were a total of seven levels to this footwork technique. For every level one mastered, one could create a shadow clone of himself. With seven shadow clones, it would be easy to make the enemy confused about which one would be the real person. Using this footwork technique, one could also greatly increase one’s speed of escape.

After mastering it, Han Jue returned to his cave abode to pack his things before heading to the inner sect city.

He first went to the mission building to receive the mission before heading to the Pet Beast Pavilion.

In the Jade Serene Hall.

Fairy Xi Xuan stared emotionlessly at Elder Iron and slowly said, “I don’t wish to delve into the stories between you and Han Jue. From today onwards, you’re fellow disciples. You must respect him. With my understanding of him, he won’t scheme against you. You can rest assured.”

Elder Iron knelt in the hall and sighed, nodding slowly.

“In the future, Han Jue will be my personal disciple. If you build a good relationship with him, it will only be beneficial to you. As long as it’s not a grudge about life and death, you should reconcile.”

Fairy Xi Xuan’s words shocked Elder Iron.

Personal disciple!

Fairy Xi Xuan thinks so highly of Han Jue?

When he thought of Han Jue’s insane speed at cultivating, he could only admit.

That kid’s indeed worthy!

Walking out of the teleportation formation, Han Jue arrived at the Ten Thousand Demon Realm.

The sky of the Ten Thousand Demon Realm was covered in dark clouds as if it were about to rain at any moment.

Han Jue took out his flying sword and shot up into the sky.

According to the instructions of the disciples at the Pet Beast Pavilion, he had to find the pavilion of the Jade Serene Peak first. That would be his residence. There were forbidding spells cast on the pavilion, and ordinary beasts wouldn’t dare to approach.

Of course, he couldn’t hide in the pavilion forever. If he encountered a rampage, he had to take action to reduce the losses for the Jade Pure Sect.

The Jade Pure Sect had spent a lot of money to buy all the beasts in the Ten Thousand Demon Realm, and nurturing them also required a lot of resources.

The pavilion wasn’t far from the teleportation formation, and Han Jue quickly found it.

It was two stories high, and it wasn’t very big. The house was deserted.

After familiarizing himself with the mechanisms to trigger the forbidding spells, Han Jue began to meditate and cultivate.

The long and boring cultivation began again!

A year and a half passed quickly.

Han Jue was already 50 years old.

[Name: Han Jue]

[Lifespan: 50 / 196]

[Race: Mortal]

[Cultivation: Ninth Level of the Foundation Establishment realm]

[Technique: Six Paths of Reincarnation Technique (Can be inherited)]

[Magic: Unparalleled Finger Divine Sword, Seven Illusionary Steps]

[Mystical Power: None]

[Equipment: None]

[Cultivation Potential: Spiritual Physique of the Six Paths. It contains top-notch wind, fire, water, earth, wood, and thunder cultivation potentials. Increases providence to a certain extent.]

[Connate providence is as follows]

[Unparalleled: Immortal beauty, top-notch charm]

[Destined Sword Fanatic: Top-notch Sword Dao aptitude, top-notch Sword Dao learning ability]

[Unparalleled Movement Technique: Top-notch movement technique aptitude]

[Descendant of the Immortal Emperor: After the game begins, you will receive an unparalleled cultivation technique and 1,000 superior-grade spirit stones.]

[Check interpersonal relationships]

He cultivated his wind cultivation potential to the sixth level of the Foundation Establishment realm. Apart from the thunder spirit root, the other cultivation potentials were still at the fifth level of the Foundation Establishment realm.

Since Han Jue had nothing to do, he opened his interpersonal relationships to check.

Xing Hongxuan had broken through to the ninth level of the Qi Refinement realm.

Interesting.

Elder Iron was still in the first level of the Foundation Establishment realm.

Han Jue opened the email.

[Your good friend Mo Zhu was attacked by a fiendish cultivator and was almost seriously injured.]

[Your good friend Mo Zhu was attacked by disciples of the Jade Pure Sect. She was in a perilous situation and fell down a cliff.]

Han Jue was speechless.

As expected, there was a trap in that cave abode. Fortunately, he did not go.

It was very unfortunate for her. Han Jue could only pray for her silently.

“Roar!”

Suddenly, a roar came from outside the pavilion. Han Jue frowned and stood up immediately.

As he walked out the door, he saw a white cat standing on a branch.

This white cat had a slender figure, but there were white tiger patterns on it. Its purple eyes looked even more demonic.

Han Jue didn’t sense any danger and ignored the little white cat.

At this moment!

The white cat suddenly pounced on Han Jue.

Han Jue instinctively used the Seven Illusionary Steps to dodge.

The white cat slammed into the wall of the pavilion, kicked off with its four legs, turned around, and continued to pounce on Han Jue.

Han Jue frowned. The forbidding spells weren’t triggered?

He quickly jumped out into the clearing.

The white cat pounced again, its speed several times faster than before.

“So fast!”

Han Jue used the Seven Illusionary Steps and created seven shadow clones to surround the white cat. The seven Han Jues raised their hands at the same time to use the Unparalleled Finger Divine Sword.

The white cat looked around, caught off-guard, and was hit by the real sword energy.

Blood splattered as it wailed.

It quickly jumped away and disappeared into the woods.

Han Jue retracted his hand and returned to the pavilion.

He let out a long breath and wiped the cold sweat off his forehead.

Fortunately, he had learned the Seven Illusionary Steps beforehand. Otherwise, with the white cat’s speed, he wouldn’t have been its match.

“Where did that white cat come from? It’s so fast, but luckily, it doesn’t have any other attack methods.”

Han Jue thought silently.

It seemed like he had to be more cautious in the future.

After thinking about it, Han Jue continued to cultivate.

Inside a palace.

The elders of the eighteen peaks were gathered here.

“Sect Master is not here. We have to investigate the recent rampage in the Ten Thousand Demon Realm,” an elder said.

He was the teaching elder of the Heavenly Thunder Peak, Old Immortal Daoist Thunder.

“It’s rather fishy. I keep having the feeling that it’s related to the Viridescent Nether Cult.”

“That’s right. The fiendish cultivators from the Viridescent Nether Cult appeared in the nearby Li Qianlong’s cave abode. I suspect there’s a traitor in our higher-ups. Once the Sect Leader left, they started a series of actions.”

“Could it be that the Cult wants to make use of the beasts in the Ten Thousand Demon Realm?”

“Very likely. After two hundred years of training by the Jade Pure Sect, the Ten Thousand Demon Realm has become a force that cannot be underestimated.”

“Let’s send more disciples into the Ten Thousand Demon Realm.”

The elders were all talking at once.

Fairy Xi Xuan sat quietly without interrupting.

After a long discussion, the peaks finally decided to send two more disciples into the Ten Thousand Demon Realm.

The elders left. Just as Fairy Xi Xuan was about to leave, Old Immortal Daoist Thunder suddenly called out to her.

When only the two of them were left in the hall, Old Immortal Daoist Thunder asked, “Junior, why didn’t you say anything just now?”

Fairy Xi Xuan said calmly, “You can decide on these matters.”

Old Immortal Daoist Thunder narrowed his eyes and asked, “Do you know where the Sect Leader brought those 18 core candidates to?”

Fairy Xi Xuan didn’t reply.

“If there really is a traitor among the elders, then the only person I can trust is you, junior. We have to work together,” Old Immortal Daoist Thunder said seriously.

Fairy Xi Xuan replied, “Of course. After all, we were taught by the same master.”

Old Immortal Daoist Thunder smiled in satisfaction.

Ten Thousand Demon Realm.

It had been two years since the white cat left. Han Jue’s five spiritual powers had all reached the sixth level of the Foundation Establishment realm.

Cultivating steadily!

He was already halfway to the Golden Core realm.

“My young friend, are you using the Ten Thousand Demon Realm as your training ground?”

A mocking voice sounded. Han Jue opened his eyes and saw that an old man had appeared at the door.

The old man was wearing a coarse cloth robe. He was shaking a wine gourd, and his nose was red from over-drinking.

Han Jue frowned and asked, “Who are you?”

He actually didn’t sense the old man’s approach.

Dangerous!
