“Are you really Daddy’s disciple?”
“But Daddy isn’t powerful at all. How could he be Aunt Yun’s master?”
Qin Xiao was puzzled.
“Because Master is very handsome.”
Yun Xi smiled.
“Actually… Master is very powerful.”
Yun Xi said meaningfully, “If it weren’t for Master, the God Realm would have long been destroyed.”
“Could it be that Daddy is the great hero who saved the world?”
“Hmph, I don’t believe you.”
Qin Xiao took a bite of the beast meat in her hand and expressed her doubts.
Yun Xi shrugged helplessly.
Ever since Qin Xiao was born, Qin Jue had almost never fought again. Every day, he would either drink, sleep, eat, or sing. Qin Xiao naturally didn’t know how powerful her father was.
Ten minutes later, Yun Xi threw away the bone and stood up. “Are you full?”
Qin Xiao wiped her mouth and nodded slightly.
“Alright, let’s go.”
Seven days had already passed since they left the Grand Thunder Sect. During these seven days, Yun Xi had brought Qin Xiao to various dimensions to taste delicacies and play happily.
As for the incident with the Grand Thunder Sect, it was just a small interlude for the two of them and they did not take it to heart at all.
Of course, Yun Xi didn’t willfully kill the innocent and destroy the entire Grand Thunder Sect. She only killed all the higher-ups who had participated in the siege, including Sect Master Xu Hui and Elder Liu Mu.
“Aunt Yun, where are we going next?”
In the void, Qin Xiao followed behind Yun Xi and was rather curious.
Yun Xi was stunned when she heard this, and she immediately revealed an embarrassed expression.
In fact, even she had forgotten where she was.
Taking out the void locator, Yun Xi observed seriously for a moment and said in astonishment, “When did we come here?”
“What’s wrong, Aunt Yun?” Qin Xiao hurriedly asked.
“Ahem, nothing. Nothing.”
Yun Xi waved her hand and said hesitantly, “We… seem to be under the jurisdiction of one of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect branches. If I remember correctly, your mother should be on that continent ahead.”
As she spoke, Yun Xi pointed at a continent at the end of her field of vision.
“What?! Let’s run!”
Qin Xiao was shocked. It wasn’t easy for her to come out. She didn’t want to be caught by her mother.
“It’s already too late.”
Yun Xi smiled bitterly.
Before she could finish his sentence, the space beside her suddenly distorted. Then, a peerlessly beautiful woman in snow-white clothes walked out.
“Why are you two here?” The woman frowned and questioned.
Qin Xiao, who was about to escape, saw the woman and her expression changed drastically. She froze in place.
That’s right, the woman was Su Yan, who was handling the conflict with the Heavenly God Race at the Xuanyi Mountain Sect branch.
With Su Yan’s cultivation at the Dao Validation God King Stage, she had already noticed Yun Xi and Qin Xiao the moment they appeared in this void.
“Um… Sister Su Yan, because Little Xiao wants to come out to play, I brought her out to take a look.”
Yun Xi chose to betray Qin Xiao without hesitation.
Su Yan stretched out her finger and flicked Qin Xiao’s head. “How many times have I told you not to run around? What if you encounter danger?”
Qin Xiao covered her head and said aggrievedly, “But Aunt Yun said that with her around, there won’t be any danger.”
Yun Xi :”…”
Hey, hey, hey, when did I say that?
As expected of Master’s daughter!
“Yun Xi, is what she said true?”
Su Yan looked at Yun Xi, her words filled with danger.
Yun Xi immediately said firmly, “I’ve never said such a thing!”
Qin Xiao pulled the corner of Yun Xi’s clothes and tried to act coquettishly. Unfortunately, Su Yan waved her hand and directly grabbed her over.
“It’s useless to ask Aunt Yun for help. Do you think I don’t know what you’re capable of?”
As she spoke, Su Yan slapped Qin Xiao’s butt.
“Wuwuwu, I was wrong. I won’t dare to do it again.”
Although Qin Xiao was a True God Stage expert, she was still only eight years old. After being reprimanded by his mother, she finally couldn’t help but cry.
Seeing this, Yun Xi couldn’t help but advise. “Sister Su Yan, stop hitting her. Although I didn’t say any of that, I was still the one who brought her out. If you want to punish someone, punish me!”
“Hai, I really can’t do anything about you guys.”
Su Yan was helpless. “Alright, stop crying. I’ll spare you this time for Aunt Yun’s sake.”
Qin Xiao, who was originally crying, immediately smiled happily after hearing this, as if nothing had happened.
Su Yan :”…”
Yun Xi :”…”
“How long have you two been out?”
After a moment of silence, Su Yan changed the topic.
“About half a month.” Yun Xi pondered.
“Half a month? Where’s Senior Brother Qin?”
“Daddy went out for something.” Qin Xiao answered.
“He went out? Where did he go?”
Su Yan was surprised. Qin Jue didn’t tell her about leaving.
“I don’t know.”
Qin Xiao was at a loss. Before Qin Jue left, he only said that he was leaving for a period of time, but he didn’t say where he was going or how long it would take.
“Forget it, forget it. Come with me.”
After thinking for a long time, Su Yan, who could not figure out the answer, simply chose to give up.
Yun Xi was stunned when she heard this. What did she mean?
“What? Do you guys want to continue running around?” Su Yan said coldly.
“No, no, no.” Yun Xi shook her head repeatedly. “I’ll listen to Sister Su Yan’s arrangements.”
What a joke. With Qin Jue’s help, Su Yan had stepped into the Dao Validation God King Stage earlier than Yun Xi. Su Yan was the strongest expert in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect besides Qin Jue, and Yun Xi was no match for her.
Moreover, strictly speaking, Su Yan was her master’s wife. Even if Su Yan didn’t have any cultivation, Yun Xi still had to listen to her.
Therefore, under Su Yan’s lead, the two of them flew towards the distant continent.
As Yun Xi had said, one of the branches of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect was located on that continent, and it was also the branch closest to the Heavenly God Race.
Ever since Qin Jue fused the God Realm and the Inner Realm three hundred years ago, changing the laws of the world, things had changed. Since then, the patriarch of the Heavenly God Race, Tian Hunji, and the patriarch of the Myriad Divine Court, Sun Wukong, had both advanced to the Heaven Ascension God King Stage one after another. Their sphere of influence had increased greatly. If it weren’t for the Heavenly Palace and the Xuanyi Mountain Sect keeping them in check, the two of them would have long since fought over more cultivation resources.
Under normal circumstances, the Heavenly God Race absolutely did not dare to provoke the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. This time, they had actually alarmed Su Yan to personally come and deal with it. Moreover, they had not resolved it after so long. It was simply inconceivable.
“Sister Su Yan, what happened here? Why did you come here personally?” Yun Xi couldn’t help but ask.
Sighing, Su Yan said faintly, “Two months ago, the branch here was suddenly attacked by the experts of the Heavenly God Race and suffered heavy casualties. However, after investigation, we discovered that the other party was not from the Heavenly God Race.”
“Not the Heavenly God Race? Who is it then?”
Yun Xi was stunned.
“I’m not sure.”
Su Yan said in a deep voice, “The patriarch of the Heavenly God Race has talked to me about it. Those experts who attacked the Heavenly God Race were all members of the Heavenly God Race who had recently disappeared. It’s unknown if they’re still alive. It’s very likely that someone disguised themselves as members of the Heavenly God Race and wanted to sow discord.”
After a pause, she added, “According to my speculation, they don’t belong to the God Realm.”
