Chapter 1022 The Sect Master of the Ghost King Sect
Luo Dongqing sighed. Since Qin Haodong turned him down, it was a good idea for him to let his granddaughter be the director.
Unexpectedly, as soon as he turned his head, the Little Witch immediately cried, “Geezer, I can’t be the director. I will go wherever my Little Brother goes.”
Luo Dongqing was very depressed. No matter what, the Tortoise Academy was one of the four academies of the Lingwu Continent, and the position of director was coveted by countless people. Why didn’t they want to be the director?
Qin Haodong smiled, patted him on the shoulder, and said, “Forget it, geezer. You can be the director. I’ll help you improve your cultivation in the future.
“I promise to help you reach the late stage of the Grand Completion Realm. Then, you will not be weaker than those old guys in the other academies.”
“Well, that’s all I can do for the time being.”
Luo Dongqing had originally wanted Qin Haodong to take over the position of the director and transform the Tortoise Academy into the number one academy in the Lingwu Continent. However, it seemed that he could only rely on himself to do this.
After tying up all loose ends, everyone sat on the Three-legged Golden Toad and flew toward the direction of the Tortoise Academy.
Niu Cuihua approached Qin Haodong and said, “Hubby, you have seven Black Demon Pearls now. Take them out and let’s see what they are good for and why the people of Ghost King Sect coveted them so much?”
Qin Haodong was also full of curiosity about the Black Demon Pearls. With a thought, he took out the seven Black Demon Pearls and held them in his palm.
The other girls also gathered and looked at the seven black pearls curiously.
However, no one was able to figure out anything even after observing for a long time.
The Little Witch picked one up and said, “Is this thing for eating? Can it bring great benefits to people after eating it?”
Qin Haodong rubbed her head and said, “Don’t you think of anything else besides food?”
The Little Witch pursed her lips and returned the Black Demon Pearl. “Inedible?! Not fun.”
He Ziwei said, “It was said that the sleeping God of Demon underground will be resurrected once the seven Black Demon Pearls are collected together. We now have the seven Black Demon Pearls, but nothing happened. It seems that it is just a rumor.”
Tu Jiaojiao said, “Maybe we didn’t do it the right way?”
They had a long discussion about this. Qin Haodong studied the pearls for another period of time and still couldn’t figure out how to use them.
In the end, he felt that it was boring and directly put the Black Demon Pearls into the Seven Storeys Pagoda. Whether the rumor was true or false, it was fine as long as no one else got them.
After it evolved to the eighth level, the Three-legged Golden Toad’s speed was extremely fast. It only took them half a day to arrive at the Tortoise Kingdom.
Although he was in a hurry to return to the earth through the space loophole, there were still a lot of things to be done before that. Thus, Qin Haodong followed everyone to Tortoise City.
As the leader of this experience to the Medicine God Valley, Luo Dongqing immediately rushed to the palace to report the situation to Zhao Xianlong.
Qin Haodong called the girls to a room. He would be leaving soon and did not want to keep any more secrets, so he was going to tell everyone about his situation.
These people were sincere to him. Before leaving, he had to give everyone an explanation.
He said, “Since everyone is here today, I have something to tell you.”
Niu Cuihua said with a smile, “Hubby, are you proposing to us?”
The Little Witch smiled and said, “It’s okay. You don’t have to be nervous. Just say it directly. We will agree. We are all sisters who are on good terms with each other. There is no need to say who gets to be the first wife and who…”
The other girls were relatively shy. Although they did not speak, their cheeks were also flushed and they looked at him with curiosity and hope.
Qin Haodong was speechless for a moment. He coughed and said, “Well, stop joking. I have something important to tell you.”
Seeing his serious expression, the other girls realized that something was not quite right and stopped laughing.
He hesitated and said, “I’m leaving.”
Zhao Xingyue asked, “You will leave as soon as you have just came back? Where are you going this time?”
As the princess of the Tortoise Kingdom, it would be generally very difficult for her to leave Tortoise City in the future. Therefore, she did not want Qin Haodong to leave her.
“I’m going back to where I came from. That’s my hometown,” Qin Haodong said. “In fact, I’ve been hiding it from you. I’m not from this world.”
Niu Cuihua said, “Hubby, you are joking with us, aren’t you? You are exactly the same as us. How can you not be from this world?”
“I am really not from the Lingwu Continent…”
Qin Haodong told these girls about his arrival through the space loophole and then said, “I came from a place called earth. That is my home.
“I have been trying my best to improve my cultivation because I want to open the space loophole and then go back to my hometown as soon as possible.”
After they heard this astounding news, all the girls had their mouths agape in surprise and did not believe him initially.
After a long period of silence, Tu Jiaojiao said, “You are not lying to us, right?”
Qin Haodong said, “I’m telling the truth. Haven’t you noticed that I’m different from others? The delicious food you have eaten is from my hometown. There’s no such thing in the Lingwu Continent, right?”
“Really? Little Brother, you have so much delicious food in your hometown?! I want to go with you.”
The Little Witch’s eyes lit up. She grabbed Qin Haodong’s arm as if she was afraid that he would run away.
He Ziwei said, “I don’t care where you’re from. I just know that you’re my hubby. I’ll go wherever you go.”
Niu Cuihua also added, “So do I. I will never be separated from you no matter what…”
“I also wish to leave with you…”
“I’ll go wherever you go. Don’t think about getting rid of me…”
These girls clearly stated their stand. They even stepped forward and grabbed hold of Qin Haodong. All of them wanted to go back to earth with him.
“Let go of me first. I won’t sneak away. Otherwise, I won’t tell you.”
Qin Haodong finally made the girls release him and then said to Zhao Xingyue, “You are the heir of Tortoise Kingdom. It is not good for you to leave with me.”
Zhao Xingyue insisted, “I don’t care. If I can’t be with you, then I don’t want to be the heir.
“By the way, if you can go through the space loophole, that would mean you can still return to this place.”
Qin Haodong thought for a moment and said, “Well, since you are willing, let’s go now.”
According to his plan, he would bring his relatives to this place and then settle down in the Medicine God Valley together.
Therefore, they didn’t inform the king of the Tortoise Kingdom, Zhao Xianlong. They just left a note in the room. Then, they left Tortoise City and flew toward the space loophole.
Qin Haodong had made a mark, so he found the location of the space loophole easily.
He observed his surroundings and discovered that the concealment formation he had set up here was completely undamaged. This meant that no one had discovered it.
Niu Cuihua asked, “Hubby, how can we open this loophole?”
Qin Haodong said, “This space loophole was forcibly sealed by the ancient immortals on the earth with their cultivation. There is no other good way. We can only crack it by force.”
Niu Cuihua said, “Then, let me try.”
After that, everyone else retreated to the side. Her cultivation which was at the late stage of the Grand Completion Realm suddenly broke out. Niu Cuihua punched the space loophole with her fist.
However, there was only a slight energy fluctuation in the space loophole, without any other effects.
Qin Haodong’s face darkened. He thought that if his cultivation reached the stage of the Grand Completion Realm, he would be able to break the seal here. However, it seemed that it was much more difficult than he had imagined.
“Let me do it.”
He asked Niu Cuihua to stand aside and directly used his cultivation which was at the peak of the Grand Completion Realm.
After a few successive punches, the surrounding air began to fluctuate. However, that space loophole was still intact.
Qin Haodong was depressed and became angry. He had worked so hard to return to his home, but now he could not break through the seal. Could it be that he would never be able to go back?
Thinking of this, the uncontrollable anger rose in his heart. He summoned the Xuan Yuan Sword and slashed at the space loophole repeatedly.
“Rumble, rumble, rumble…”
A series of loud sounds rang out in the sky. The space loophole appeared to be quivering. However, the seal remained incomparably firm without showing any signs of breaking.
Qin Haodong’s eyes reddened. His heart was filled with anger. Could it be that he would never be able to get home? Would he never see his relatives again?
Niu Cuihua hurried forward to pull him back. “Hubby, calm down. If you continue to slash away, the whole loophole will collapse and you will never be able to return.”
This sentence was like a basin of cold water splashing over him and Qin Haodong calmed down instantly.
In any case, this was the only space passage to the earth, his hometown. As long as it was still here, he still had a chance to go back.
He sat down cross-legged before the space loophole and began pondering seriously.
It was reasonable to say that the power of his attack just now was far beyond that of the soul spear used by the Alien Demon Emperor on the earth. How could it not break the seal?
Suddenly, an idea came to him and he seemed to have a brainwave. The seal was set by the Yellow Emperor and the others on the earth to prevent people of the Alien Demon from entering the earth, so the strength of the defense must be on the side of the Lingwu Continent.
On the side of the earth, the defense was much weaker. Therefore, the strength on the side of the earth had been easily broken through by the soul spear.
He understood this logic, but he was trapped in a dilemma. His cultivation that was at the peak of the Grand Completion Realm couldn’t break through the seal. What should he do? Could he get home? Would he be trapped in the Lingwu Continent for the rest of his life?
At this time, the Little Witch came over, took his arm, and said, “Little Brother, don’t be too sad. It’s okay if you can’t go back. Anyway, we will accompany you.”
Niu Cuihua, Tu Jiaojiao, Zhao Xingyue, and the others came over to him. “That’s right. At least we will be here to accompany you.”
Qin Haodong sighed and said, “But that’s my home. I have a lot of relatives there.”
At this moment, a cold voice sounded nearby. “I thought you knew how to use the Black Demon Pearls, but it turns out that you are a good-for-nothing who knows nothing.”
Qin Haodong was slightly shocked. He had been distracted and didn’t know that someone had approached him.
He turned his head and saw a middle-aged man in white standing behind him. Beside him were the Second Elder, the Third Elder, the Fourth Elder, and the Seventh Elder of the Ghost King Sect.
Seeing this, he immediately understood that this middle-aged man was the sect master of the Ghost King Sect, Li Tianxing.
