The two drank and chatted for a long time. When Xiao Chen found out that he had slept for half a year, he could not help but fall silent again.
When the ship left the valley, Xiao Chen returned the wine bottle and thanked him. Then, without saying another word, he flew up Thunder Emperor Valley.
Just like that, Xiao Chen stood on a clifftop of Thunder Emperor Valley and looked at the distant sky. His thoughts drifted together with the wind. After a long time, he took out the Lunar Shadow Saber from the Universe Ring.
“Huang dang!” Xiao Chen drew the saber from the scabbard. The cold, slender, and long saber looked as sharp as before. He touched the sharp edge of the saber with his finger and gently slid it down. Blood immediately trickled down the blade.
Before the blood dripped off, Xiao Chen sheathed the saber back in the scabbard. Then, he sent a palm strike at it. The Lunar Shadow Saber instantly entered Thunder Emperor Valley. A small, pitch-black hole appeared in the ground. The Lunar Shadow Saber got buried deep at an unknown depth.
Xiao Chen fell to his knees and kowtowed, hitting his head against a hard rock. Blood flowed from his forehead, dyeing the blue Sea Monarch Headscarf red.
“If I cannot bring Ao Jiao back, then I, Xiao Chen, will never use another saber.”
Xiao Chen had seen the extreme power of the mysterious and strong talisman in Misleading Fog Lake. When one’s strength reached the peak, a miracle might happen.
“Big Brother, what is that Xiao Chen doing?”
The small ship sailed out of the valley, but it did not go too far away. When the group of people saw Xiao Chen kneeling on the ground, they were all baffled.
Bai Lixi sighed silently. This brother of his was probably truly in a deep pit. He waved his hand and said, “Let’s go. There are some things that we cannot understand.”
After staying at the clifftop at Thunder Emperor Valley for three days, Xiao Chen settled down and checked the benefits that the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation’s seventh layer brought him.
Firstly, all the Mental Energy in his sea of consciousness had actually turned into Magic Energy; moreover, he emanated it when he did not make an effort to contain it.
Looking at the vast Magic Energy, Xiao Chen sighed. Indeed, the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation’s seventh layer had brought him an Immortal Destiny.
The distant Penglai Sea in the Kunlun Realm had people who cultivated Immortal Cultivation. However, as far as he knew, these people could not cultivate Martial Cultivation. Furthermore, he had never heard of any Martial Cultivator who cultivated Immortal Cultivation.
However, not just anyone could cultivate Immortal Cultivation. They needed that faintly discernible Immortal Destiny. Otherwise, no matter how talented one was, there would be no way for one to cultivate Immortal Cultivation.
Now that this was the Martial Epoch, people with Immortal Destiny were rare. Only the Penglai Sea had some Immortal Cultivators gathered there.
These Immortal Cultivators had nothing to do with the Immortal Epoch. They were just members of the later generation that gained some inheritances. Compared to the true experts of the Immortal Epoch, these Immortal Cultivators were like mud to clouds.
After checking again, Xiao Chen discovered that his Heavenly Sage Laws had not diminished or disappeared. He still had his strength as a Martial Cultivator. Furthermore, they had become even purer and denser.
All three hundred of his Heavenly Sage Laws had thickened threefold; they were now as thick as a baby’s arm.
A peak Inferior Grade Martial Sage could have five hundred Heavenly Sage Laws. Although Xiao Chen’s cultivation had not changed, the might of a Kunlun Realm regular Superior Grade Martial Sage’s Heavenly Sage Laws could not compare to that of his Heavenly Sage Laws.
Immortal and Martial Dual Cultivation!
Suddenly, these words popped up in Xiao Chen’s head. Perhaps the purpose of the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation was Immortal and Martial Dual Cultivation!
The Immortal Spells recorded in the Compendium of Cultivation were too weak. Compared to the Martial Techniques of the Kunlun Realm, they were much weaker; they were only rudimentary knowledge.
However, only this Purple Thunder Divine Incantation far surpassed Heaven Ranked Cultivation Techniques. Now that Xiao Chen had broken through to the seventh layer, the change could be described as earth-shattering.
Who exactly created the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation?
From Xiao Chen’s viewpoint, it was impossible for an expert of the Immortal Epoch or the Martial Epoch to have created such a Cultivation Technique.
Only a person who was deeply familiar with both Immortal Cultivation and Martial Cultivation, as well as the body of a Martial Cultivator, would be able to create this Purple Thunder Divine Incantation.
The strength of the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation was beyond doubt. Now, Xiao Chen had a realistic understanding of the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation’s danger.
The purple Lightning Talisman in Xiao Chen’s sea of consciousness spun. The spreading Magic Energy immediately stopped leaking out after he contained it.
Xiao Chen sank his consciousness into his body to his dantian. He wanted to see what the Azure Dragon Martial Spirit, which had dwindled to a spot of light after the lightning baptism, looked like now.
He would not know without looking for himself. When he saw it, he was startled. The tiny Azure Dragon had already recondensed. However, he felt that it was very different from a Martial Spirit.
Previously, the Azure Dragon Martial Spirit had been just like a dragon-shaped energy without any consciousness, which did not accept his control.
However, the feeling this Azure Dragon gave him was like it was a part of himself. Furthermore, it felt vaguely like a Yuanying. Not only could he control it as he pleased, but it even contained a great amount of energy; it had an extremely deep connection with him.
If this Azure Dragon got destroyed, the consequences would not be as simple as before. Now, he would die with it.
Xiao Chen exclaimed with some shock, “What is this? Yuanying? Or a Nascent Dragon Soul?”
[TL note: Yuanying can be translated into Nascent Soul. For the Nascent Dragon Soul, the word for soul was replaced by the word for dragon. However, Nascent Dragon just means baby dragon, so I settled for Nascent Dragon Soul, merging the two concepts.]
Clearly, this small Azure Dragon had the characteristics of a Yuanying, as described in the Compendium of Cultivation. However, an Immortal Cultivator’s Yuanying should share the cultivator’s appearance.
After trying to circulate his energies, Xiao Chen discovered that this Azure Dragon was indeed his Yuanying. This irregularity was probably the result of dual cultivating Martial and Immortal Cultivation.
Since he could not do much about this, he could only leave it be.
A fierce flame started burning intensely in Xiao Chen’s right eye. With a thought, the Purple Thunder True Fire spewed out. The purple fire landed on the river, covering a large portion of it.
“Chi!” Boundless steam instantly rose up from the river surface, blanketing the surrounding fifty kilometers.
This white steam was very thick; a significant portion of the river evaporated, forming a massive pit in the water. The surrounding water surged in, and an incredibly enormous whirlpool spun wildly.
Xiao Chen retracted the Purple Thunder True Fire into his eye. When he saw the scene before him, he was astonished.
This was the most objective change that he obtained after the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation advanced. Now, the Purple Thunder True Fire could serve as a true weapon. He would be able to compete with the outstanding geniuses of the same generation in the Kunlun Realm.
However, Yin and Yang had lost their balance, making it more difficult to form the Taiji Yinyang Flame Diagram. He had to find more Yin-attributed flames for the Lunar True Flame to absorb.
Xiao Chen could now be described with the word “reborn.” Now, he would walk a path that no one had taken before or would take after.
He calmed down after a long time. A jade strip appeared in his hand. This was the Immortal Spell that he obtained with the Golden Crow Egg-Starry Heaven Storm.
Previously, Xiao Chen did not have Magic Power and could not practice this powerful Immortal Spell; it could only serve as eye candy for him. Now, it seemed like it was made just for him. 12-27. The Whereabouts of the Prophecy
Satou’s here. I feel that the accuracy rate of the thing called prophecy increases the fuzzier it is. I feel that it can reveal any kind of answer later depending on its allowances and the people interpreting it.
Then, the prophecy in a world where gods exist is–
While drawing blue afterglow, I go through the Royal Capital’s sky fast with Flash Drive.
I land before the man in black clothing who’s jumping through roofs–the high level scout belonging to [Light of Liberty].
Landing while crossing my arms and with both legs straight, I want to retort myself who do you think you are.
I call out to the scout who turns around going to run away after seeing me.
“Where do you think you’re going?”
Arisa retorted me, “You should’ve said [Where are you going huh] there!” through [Tactic Talk], but I’m not interested in making a joke now, so I ignore her.
“Would you return the things you’ve stolen in the royal castle, thief-kun?”
“■ Item Box”
The scout obediently opens his Item Box and takes out a small bag out of it.
I thought he was just faking it, but since the marker I’ve put on my [Chant] orb reappears, it seems to be the real thing.
“Good prudence. I’ll stop myself from tearing you limb from limb.”
While still being silent, the scout throws the small bag with my [Chant] orb inside, high in the air. It’s probably for making a chance.
I fire around 10 [Short Stun] toward the scout, and approach the small bag with Flash Drive.
Yosh, got it–
–the small bag disappears just before I’m about to catch it.
The scout who’s using shadow as his shield below me is currently entering his own shadow while holding the small bag on his hand.
–Tsk, shadow magic huh.
No, this guy should only have light magic and holy magic.
Then, this must be an ability of his item.
“I won’t let you!”
I dive into the indefinite shadow that the scout has made.
I intrude the sub-space created by the shadow vigorously.
I can’t see anything since there’s no light, but the AR reading and the radar are different.
The markers I’ve put on the scout and the [Chant] orb tell me his location.
I couldn’t do anything when I went into the shadow created by the [No-Life King] during Mia’s kidnapping, but it’s different now.
I fly with Flash Drive in the shadow space, snatch the small bag from the scout and put it into my Storage.
And then, I immediately put all the orbs inside in a special folder.
Safe. I feel relieved now.
Next, I just have to escape.
I was able to go out before by yelling fiercely.
I can probably do the same now.
The black space is broken, and I’m back at the Royal Capital.
“I-impossible. Who are you bastard! It’s too nonsensical. Interfering the space not with magic but yell….
I heard a sound like someone’s strumming glass.
What is that sound?
“D-don’t tell me, you’re not a hero? Y-you bastard, are you god, no, that kind of stupid thing shouldn’t be.”
Red rope-like patterns appear on the skin of the scout who’s begun talking in slur.
His back is transforming.
Apparently, this guy is a fiend drug habitual user.
I don’t know the cause, but perhaps, his monster element is stimulated when his mind gets disturbed, it’s probably the same reason as a reincarnated person changing into demon lord.
I don’t have any duty to save him, but I’ll be sparing myself from seeing splatter film-like scene before my eyes.
The fiend transformation probably stops if his magic power is drained.
As if obstructing me from invoking [Mana Drain], several sakura-colored feelers fall from the sky.
Aocheng Immortal King was expressionless. After endless ages, he didn’t speak much words. Yet today, he spoke an entire line, leaving the two children shocked.
They knew that this matter was definitely extremely important.
Otherwise, why would the ancient ancestor give these types of instructions?
“Can we choose Ao Gan to go?” One of the dao children quietly and cautiously asked.
It was because in the recent hundreds of thousands of years, Ao Gan was considered a direct descendant who was stunning enough.
“He has been given a chance, but he missed it.” After saying this, Aocheng Immortal King didn’t say any more, closing his eyes.
The two children hurriedly delivered a bow of respect, and then slowly withdrew. Then, they left this place, leaving the primal chaos ancient cave.
They knew that this time, because Ao Gan lost to Huang, he already lost his value in the ancient ancestor’s eyes, he was no longer attached any importance to.
Inside Ao Clan, true immortal level experts gathered in the ancestral palace. After carefully discussing things, they ultimately chose a disciple who achieved the dao more than a hundred thousand years before Ao Gan, someone who was a step away from the true immortal domain.
This individual was stunning enough, his aptitude definitely not inferior to Ao Gan’s. However, he was locked up in a heavenly prison because he was too wild and untamed, challenging the dignity of the clan’s true immortals.
“Haha… I’ve finally broken free! That group of old but still not dead fellas still chose to release me in the end!” An eccentric with dishevelled hair and eyes full of cold light walked out from the prison.
“Ao Tuo, your behavior has always been wanton and unrestrained, going against the clan’s laws. This time, I hope you can change your ways, at the same time bring yourself great natural luck!”
“Don’t worry, old fart, I already heard everything. What is that bumpkin in the lower realms worth? They are nothing more than some barbarians. If I go, I’ll kill them all with a single hand!” Ao Tuo’s eyes released dazzling brilliance. His hair was a complete mess, full of wildness.
The two true immortals were furious. This junior was lacking in discipline, showing no respect for them at all, still not changing his ways even now, calling them old farts in front of their faces.
“Ao Tuo, you need to understand that this time, there will be other immortal king descendants who will head down to obtain this natural luck. You cannot act too carelessly!”
If not for Ao Tuo’s strength being astonishing enough, his strength dominating an age, they truly wouldn’t pay him any attention. However, this time, they needed a fierce person like him to suppress the other immortal king descendants.
“Heh, aren’t they just like us, heading down to the lower realms to pick peaches, seize the natural luck that belongs to those bumpkins? Don’t worry, the natural luck is already mine, no one can seize it from me!” Ao Tuo said with a sneer.
“In order to prevent anything unexpected from happening, the clan will send two immortal dao experts to follow you into the lower realms. They will also carry great weapons, so no one can stop you all!” A true immortal said.
“Old fart, aren’t you worrying too much? With me there, no matter which group of barbarians shows up, or if any other immortal king descendants appear, they cannot do anything.” Ao Tuo’s eyes shone brilliantly.
“Brazen! You unfilial child!” Ao Tuo’s father also came. He was simply about to die from anger, pointing at Ao Tuo with his finger, his entire body shaking.
He really wanted to slap this unfilial son to death with a single slap. These were two true immortal old ancestors, yet this brat actually kept calling them old farts.
Sure enough, the two true immortal old ancestors’ faces darkened, turning around and directly leaving.
If it wasn’t because they really needed this descendant, they would have long sent out a slap, locking him up for another hundred thousand years.
Immortal Domain, within another cosmos depths.
An ancient giant city floated in the void. As the years rose and fell, it became more and more prosperous, flourishing with even greater vigor, able to dominate the endless ages!
This was Taishi King City.
Taishi Immortal King resided here, this was the center of the star system he ruled.
Similarly, today, Taishi Immortal King’s eyes also opened. In the primal chaos, he released a decree, having the clan choose a descendant who could dominate all to go fight over a great instance of natural luck.
“This is an immortal king foundation. If it cannot be seized, one can forget about achieving immortal king status.”
When these words sounded, Taishi’s bloodline was greatly shaken!
In Immortal Domain, all of the kings were shocked, all sides sensing something! Even though they didn’t need it themselves, if one of their later generations could obtain a Heaven’s Core Imprint, then they might be able to become immortal kings in the future.
They all already sensed that the lower realms were about to experience great changes.
Now, it was precisely time to merge with the great dao Heaven’s Core Imprint. Once obtained, it would bring tremendous benefits.
Nine Heavens Ten Earths.
The atmosphere was a bit strange, the creatures in the restricted region clearly also aware of what was going on, what kind of transformation was taking place in this world. A great instance of natural luck was about to appear.
Some restricted regions couldn’t remain calm anymore. Someone was about to take action, seize this natural luck!
This was a Heaven’s Core Imprint, by seizing it, one would become set up on high, overlooking a great era, able to look down on all of their competitors.
“Exactly what cultivation level have you reached now?” Inside Imperial Court, Cao Yusheng asked Shi Hao.
In recent years, Shi Hao had killed true immortals and cut down undying beings, his accomplishments world shocking. Everyone wanted to know just what level he reached.
“The peak of extreme dao, still haven’t achieved immortality. I can be considered to still be in the Supreme Being Realm I reckon.” Shi Hao replied.
Everyone was stunned. He really was defying reason by killing immortals, it really was shocking!
Even the Seven Colored Immortal Gold Man, heroic spirits and ghost immortals were speechless, not knowing what to say.
“If you obtain the Heaven’s Core Imprint, would you be able to achieve immortality?” The Heavenly Horned Ant asked.
Shi Hao released a light sigh, shaking his head and saying, “I’ve already stood at the peak of extreme dao for a long time, always just a hair off from transformation. Heaven’s Core Imprint cannot push me into immortality, but it indeed will bring me benefits. My dao needs my own path, when the time comes, I will naturally achieve immortality.”
However, everyone knew that once he achieved immortality in this way, it would be a completely different meaning!
To achieve immortality in an age where immortal ascension was not allowed, this toppled the knowledge of everyone throughout the endless ages!
“You really are a monster. You aren’t even an immortal, yet you can defy reason and kill immortals, how can immortal dao creatures even tolerate this?!” The Seven Colored Immortal Gold Man felt aggrieved.
The ghost immortals’ expressions changed again, feeling great restraining fear towards Shi Hao.
“A supreme being really can kill an immortal?” Shi Zhong swallowed a mouthful of saliva.
“Only by believing that you are without equal can it be possible.” He wanted to use Great Elder Meng Tianzheng as an example, but in the end didn’t say anything, releasing a light sigh.
The Heavenly Horned Ant and the others sighed as well. From the past until now, just how many supreme beings like this were there?
Everyone under heaven was waiting for a chance, especially some creatures in the life restricted regions. They all wanted to seize the heaven’s opportunity!
However, the troops of Imperial Court were still the same, still guarding the passages of the two realms, not doing anything special. They remained focused, guarding the various lands.
This day, the world trembled lightly, something different clearly happening.
“This damned lower realm, the great dao’s suppression is too strong, making my entire body feel uncomfortable!” Ao Family’s people appeared.
Ao Tuo’s hair was disheveled, dressed in beast skin battle armor, eyes flickering with cold light, looking like a prehistoric vicious beast, carrying a type of indescribable unruliness.
Behind him followed two middle-aged men, both of them true immortals. They feared that something unexpected would happen to Ao Tuo, so they followed him here, great killing weapons in hand.
They frowned. This world seriously rejected them, making them feel a great pressure, they were extremely uncomfortable here. Part of their immortal might was forced to be temporarily sealed off.
Ao Tuo raised his hand, releasing a terrifying and shocking aura. How could normal cultivators withstand this? The ordinary cultivators nearby almost exploded on the spot, their faces pale like snow, blood flowing out from the corners of their lips, their bodies cracking apart.
“Imperial Court’s… Huang is most powerful.”
This person was shivering all over, saying this.
“Brazen, this is just an impoverished lower realm, an uncivilized land. These are just a group of savages, yet they dare claim to establish an imperial court? You all don’t understand the height and depth of this world!” Ao Tuo berated.
This pitiful cultivator began to split apart under this type of might, exploding to pieces under this roar, having his body and spirit erased.
“Imperial Court, I want to raze it to the ground. Daring to take on this name, they simply don’t know the difference between life and death!” Ao Tuo said coldly.
In his opinion, not even his Ao Family dared establish an Imperial Court in Immortal Domain out of restraining fear towards the other immortal kings, not daring to break the peace and balance, yet someone in the lower realm actually dared do this.
Along the way, they captured cultivators, asking them where Imperial Court was, hurrying straight there!
There were palaces consecrating divine images everywhere, some of Shi Hao, some of heroic spirits.
Ao Tuo headed directly to Imperial Court’s central heavenly palace, precisely near Crucifix Yin Yang Earth. It was easier to head to the eight regions from here.
Massive heavenly temples rested here, majestic and imposing, will force rich, gathering from all directions. Draconic energies surged, auspicious multicolored light erupted, extremely divine.
On the heavenly temples hung a horizontal inscribed board made of Immortal Gold, the two words Imperial Court carved on it, a wave of world suppressing great aura spreading from it!
“Just a toad releasing a yawn, they really are putting on too much airs!” Ao Tuo sneered, carrying an expression of mockery. With a raise of his hand, his palm and fingers enlarged, grabbing a great mountain.
He fiercely smashed it out, wishing to crush Imperial Court into ruins. He had an expression of contempt on his face, completely looking down on this lower realm’s so-called Imperial Court.
It was because in his opinion, the current lower realm only had some creatures with ordinary strength. He wanted to powerfully subdue them, use this to inform all the creatures of this world that he, Ao Tuo, has arrived.
“I have come for the Heaven’s Core Imprint! What Imperial Court, what number one expert? All of you better stand to the side!” Ao Tuo said with a laugh.
The great mountain smashed down. That place erupted with great brilliance, incredibly dazzling. The entire mountain was stopped in front of the heavenly temples, and then it exploded. It was because there were extreme formations established here to protect Imperial Court.
The two true immortals inwardly jumped, feeling like this formation was extraordinary.
In reality, when they heard that Imperial Court was established by Huang, they already revealed a look of alarm, knowing well that this person was special. He even defeated their clan’s Ao Gan.
Ao Tuo didn’t know about this because he was locked up for more than a hundred thousand years.
The two true immortals weren’t really fond of Ao Tuo. Being treated with disrespect by a junior and having been called old farts changed their expressions. They didn’t mention Huang’s achievements, just letting Ao Tuo run loose, wishing to see what kind of methods he had.
The main reason was because the two true immortals were secure in their backing, extremely arrogant. Since they brought over great killing weapons, they believed that they could cut down even gods and buddhas!
The two of them had faith that they could deal with any disasters that came their way.
However, they didn’t know just how terrifying Huang became in these thousands of years, that he already killed true immortals and undying beings, his achievements too glorious.
“Who dares disturb my Imperial Court?” A voice shouted from within the heavenly temples.
“Even ants like you dare establish an Imperial Court, vainly wishing to seize profound natural luck? All of you better crawl out here right now, all those who dare defy me will be annihilated!” Ao Tuo threatened with a cold voice.
This type of nasty temper had always made the clan’s true immortals’ faces darken, not willing to pay him any attention, so one could well imagine how outsiders would feel when they heard this. There was no way they could endure it.
1. Taishi = great beginning
Next Chapter Above the Knights of Destruction, there was an existence that could never be surpassed. No matter how powerful they were, it was absolutely impossible to cross the chasm.
Therefore, in Su Ruiying’s view, Long Yao’s ambition was like a joke. Their current status had reached its peak. There was no possibility of climbing higher. Long Yao chose to find Jun Wu Xie and ask for trouble.
However, Long Yao did not think so.
“Whether the memory will be erased, this is only known to himself. Don’t forget that even for me, some images still flash in my mind occasionally.” Long Yao somewhat pointed this at Su Ruiying.
Erasing one’s memory seemed terrible. For the memory to be completely cleared, it had certain difficulty. Even Su Ruiying could not guarantee perfection. After a long time, there would still be fragments of memory left in their minds, flashing from time to time. However, those fragments cannot be connected like scrolls of pictures.
“Oh? What do you mean?” Su Ruiying raised her eyebrows slightly.
Wang Xi came out from seclusion. Her beautiful hair fluttered about, a complicated expression appearing in her eyes. A small black sword appeared from her forehead, the unmatched sword core of the Chaos Calming Art!
She really wanted to take action, go out and fight, but in the end, she remained silent. She experienced her first defeat not long ago, something that was hard for her to free herself from. She knew that she couldn’t challenge the other person immediately, because it was too difficult for her to win. Only when her primordial spirit completely formed an unmatched sword core would she become unmatched.
She had confidence that once the sword core was fully cultivated, it could kill all enemies, not even Huang able to withstand it. It was because this was one of the three most powerful sword arts.
This meant that once she achieved great success with Chaos Calming Art, one of the most powerful offensive precious techniques, the sword core would hack through everything, able to erase all enemies!
Lu Tuo also came out from seclusion, currently gazing into the distance, the light in his eyes fluctuating continuously. A layer of clear energy rose around his body, covering him, making him appear a bit indistinct.
Ten Crown King’s eyes contracted. He stood on a mountain peak, staring in that direction, nodding as he muttered to himself, acknowledging that this was a worthy opponent!
“This fella is becoming stronger and stronger, really a freak!” Princess Yao Yue said to herself. She was surrounded by a sphere of moonlight, clean and pure, teeth bright, lips bright red, currently thinking to herself if there was any good way of roping Huang into her family, having him become a powerful assistance for the imperial court.
Stellar rivers fell, True Dragons moved about, phoenix birds underwent rebirth… all of the irregular scenes disappeared!
Meanwhile, in that mountain region, primal chaos swirled about Shi Hao. There was an even more astonishing scene that took place above his head, the third strand of immortal energy condensing into a flower bud, blooming at this moment!
In that instant auspicious light flourished, immortal multicolored light overflowed, sweeping through the heavens above and earth below.
This flower bloomed, immediately brightening up the world.
After waiting for such a long time, he finally cultivated this result, Shi Hao’s third strand of immortal energy was taking form, producing a great dao flower, now fully blooming.
Shi Hao was surrounded within a milky-white bubble. It was extremely suddenly, covering him from head to toe, completely submerging him within. He then felt extremely light and carefree, as if he was going to sprout wings and ascend.
Success! Shi Hao formed three great dao flowers at this moment, already reaching a perfect level.
This was originally something that could only be completed while in the Heavenly Deity Realm, but he already accomplished it while in the Holy Sacrifice Realm.
He definitely couldn’t delay staying in Holy Sacrifice Realm any longer. At this moment, his body shone, every inch of his flesh surging with auspicious multicolored light, immediately advancing to Heavenly Deity Realm!
Shi Hao was now a true heavenly deity, able to look down on all of his peers.
It was because right now, he was only a bit over twenty, still extremely young!
“From his bone structures, he really is too young… able to reach the Heavenly Deity Realm at this age, calling it unprecedented might not be too far from the truth!”
“Has the youngest heavenly deity in history emerged?!”
“Huang is unordinary after all, becoming the youngest and most powerful heavenly deity!”
A few elders and competitors couldn’t help but sigh with astonishment in the academy.
Next Chapter – Clear Feeling
“This type of feeling really is great!” Shi Hao opened his eyes, strand after strand of golden light released, as if the dense fog in the darkness opened up, two streaks of the most dazzling lightning appearing in the night sky.
He didn’t move at all, still sitting there, feeling that type of carefreeness. This was a completely new experience. His flesh and divine senses condensed together, exceptionally sharp, intertwining with immortal energy. His entire body seemed to have become much more light and flexible.
He was like a rusted sharp weapon that was carefully polished, the contamination that had accumulated over the years eliminated, the rust completely removed. Dazzling brilliance was released, exquisite and agile.
This was Shi Hao’s direct observation. His entire body being had a clear feeling, his bones well proportioned and sparkling, as if he really had removed a layer of rust, becoming fresh and full of energy.
Sure enough, there was quite a bit of gray-colored impurity on the surface of his body, eliminated from his body when he rose to the heavenly deity level. One could vaguely make out a bit of bone fragments.
Shi Hao stood up, stretching out his body. He then tested his strength out, a streak of electricity emerging here, so fast its shadow couldn’t be seen as it merged with the void.
It wasn’t a misconception, his body felt incredibly agile, truly like a rust-covered ancient sword that had been polished again, revealing its original sharpness and brilliance.
At the same time, this was true for his divine sense as well, as if it had undergone a rebirth, becoming more and more sharp.
Shi Hao tested his strength, discovering that his attack power and speed both became a level stronger!
Was this the Heavenly Deity Realm?
Shi Hao slowly comprehended, adapting to his present state. He felt a wave of joy inside, a happiness one felt through improvement. He had become stronger.
Holy Sacrifice Realm was quite unstable, one’s strength fluctuating from strong to weak. When he was strong, he was comparable to a heavenly deity, when he was weak, he was below even a true deity.
In reality, many people would fail in this realm, ultimately becoming people who were inferior to even those at the Divine Flame Realm.
Meanwhile, Shi Hao cultivated three strands of immortal energy, only suffering the fluctuation of strength in the beginning, later on pretty much stabilizing, not suffering any troubles.
Moreover, this was precisely the reason why his strength gradually consolidated, everything eventually going smoothly, reaching the Heavenly Deity Realm.
“Even though my strength has improved, it isn’t as great as I had imagined.” Shi Hao frowned. In the past, each time he broke through, his strength would increase drastically. The increase in strength this time wasn’t that powerful.
Even though he knew that normally, Holy Sacrifice Realm and Heavenly Deity Realm’s strength wouldn’t be that different, because when he was in that cultivation stage, his strength fluctuated between high and low, already experiencing the power of the heavenly deity level, those who cultivated three strands of immortal energy were different, they definitely had to have some growth.
“It seems like it is because I didn’t face tribulation!” After thinking things over seriously, Shi Hao knew what was going on.
However, this wasn’t the time to cross tribulation, because ever since he entered Heavenly Deity Institution, ascending onto this path of cultivating the ancient methods, he already obtained quite a bit of information.
This cultivation realm was extremely important, he couldn’t show the slightest bit of negligence!
In reality, Wang Xi, Lu Tuo, and the others hadn’t crossed tribulation either. Even though they entered the Heavenly Deity Realm, they were merely consolidating their foundation.
It was because after cultivating the ancient method, the most important thing was merging with the immortal seed. Anyone who took this path needed to find a ‘seed’ of their own, and then from this day forth, they would have to grow and evolve together, ultimately forming the dao and become the most powerful!
In the last great era, cultivating the ancient method always began with trying to merge with the seed, so there were naturally no issues.
However, they were essentially switching to a job they weren’t trained for, not finding their own immortal seeds before, missing the best chance before.
Even though life has its extreme situations, there was still a trace of opportunity that could remedy the situation, let alone the fact that on the road of cultivation, there were naturally ways to fix this.
Of course, this was on the premise that one had to exceed certain circumstances, or else everything was too late.
When one cultivated three strands of immortal energy, forming great dao flowers, before any more immortal energy entered the body and carried out a final transformation, there was a way to remedy the situation and merge with the immortal seed.
The cleansing of the body through lightning, sending electricity hacking down on the body, this was the most fundamental part of merging with the immortal seed.
Everyone was waiting for an opportunity, waiting for the academy’s elders to lead the way and bring them to that ‘Realm Tomb’ so that they can obtain an exceptional immortal seed and take that crucial step.
The current Shi Hao was finally part of this group, just waiting for the opportunity to arrive!
“Wu, strength still increased somewhat. If I am surrounded by enemies again, it’ll probably be much easier now.” Shi Hao said to himself, a powerful wave of confidence surging.
Of course, his greatest reward was that his body now felt incredibly clear and agile. While standing there, he almost felt like he was floating, his flesh and divine senses incredibly sharp, as if he could detect danger beforehand.
His figure was tall and slender with immortal energy swirling about, as if he was an aloof true immortal from the immortal domain, the heir of an immortal king that descended into the mortal world, transcending above, untainted by a speck of dust.
Right now, even if he stood together with Yao Yue, Wang Xi, these types of fairies, everyone would feel like he would be similarly extraordinary, far above the common populace.
A single thought from Shi Hao would make the three strands of immortal energy undergo all types of changes, having perfect command over them. Now, the immortal energy had already become a part of him.
The three great immortal dao flowers bloomed above his head, rising and falling together, dao to one, one to two, two to three, three to all things. This was a type of extreme embodiment that contained true meaning!
Only, the three great dao flowers were different. Shi Hao released a light sigh, feeling a bit of regret.
A creature was seated on the first great dao flower, immortal mists covering its body. It looked extremely indistinct, as if it was from the past, subduing endless years of changes, seated above an entire segment of ancient history!
Meanwhile, as for the other two great dao flowers, there were no figures on them. There were only strands of immortal energy rising from them and the natural laws of the heavens faintly discernible.
“There will be a chance to cultivate them in the end. When that time comes, there will definitely be a completely new experience, and I should be able to become even stronger!” Shi Hao said to himself. He didn’t know what level he would reach when the other two great flowers produced creatures as well.
When peace was restored to this place, all probing eyes withdrew, Heavenly Wyes disappearing.
Shi Hao had his hands behind his back. He arrived before a white jade mountain, starting to observe the million symbols on its surface again, carefully studying and comprehending it. He discovered with shock that his speed was now faster, the efficiency a bit higher than before.
If one wanted to study Immortal Ancient methods, complying with Immortal Ancient path was still best after all. Immortal energy merged, precious pills refining the body, strength advancing vigorously, all of these could affect one’s cultivation in the future.
When he emerged from seclusion, there were already quite some people who returned to the white jade mountain. A few more people came, standing before the white jade mountain to study it.
At this stage, not many people dared to provoke Shi Hao. Even if they bore hostility, they could only endure it, because the current Huang wasn’t someone normal people could provoke.
In that stone furnace, he participated in the great battle, obtaining three snow-white and sparkling immortal pill fragments alone, even more so taking action to capture Wang Xi even after she used the Chaos Calming Art, leaving everyone shocked.
Right now, everyone who cultivated the ancient methods were in the sealed ruins, so those on this path all knew about this matter. They were incredibly alarmed, the respect they felt for him increased greatly.
“Brother Shi!” Princess Yao Yue called out to him with a giggle, her smile able to topple cities. Her dark black hair scattered down, eyes clear like autumn limpid waters, truly an outstanding beauty.
Now, perhaps only those who cultivated three strands of immortal energy dared to walk with him. Those who weren’t familiar with him didn’t dare rashly approach.
Princess Yao Yue enthusiastically invited him over, saying, “My promise is still in effect you know? If you ever bring that Wang Family girl over, we will definitely treat you with the highest level of courtesy. Of course, even if you don’t bring any gifts, we will still similarly welcome you, definitely wouldn’t do something so arrogant as pushing out a young supreme being from our gates.”
Everyone was stupefied, no one daring to add any comments. Treating Wang Xi as a gift was something perhaps only she would do, actually mocking the Wang Family like this.
“Sounds good!” Shi Hao laughed loudly, not being embarrassed at all.
Fortunately, Wang Xi had just left her seclusion cultivation, not hurrying over, or else she would feel downcast again.
“Shi Hao!” Qing Yi walked over, her quiet and elegant face carrying a gentle smile. She had just emerged from seclusion, immediately hurrying over.
Shi Hao smiled. Even though he had long entered Heavenly Deity Institution, only now could they be considered to have truly united, having a chance to chat.
He welcomed her, about to grab that slender jade hand without any trace of politeness. However, Qing Yi moved her body to the side, moving out of the way.
Yue Chan appeared in a different direction, her figure wonderful, white long dress dragging on the ground, her body swaying as she arrived, beautiful and otherworldly, as if an exiled fairy was walking in this world.
“Hey, little girl, it’s been a while.” Shi Hao also called out to her.
Many people were stunned, the expressions on their faces extremely brilliant. This fella was acquainted with that exceptional beauty? Wasn’t he acting too frivolously?
Everyone felt like it was strange. He was a young supreme being who could look down on all of his peers, so how could he speak like this?
Similarly, there was originally a faint smile on Yue Chan’s beautiful and perfect face, but now, it immediately fell.
Next Chapter – Emerging From Seclusion
The term ‘little girl’ made the exceptional beauty Yue Chan’s body become sluggish, the smile on her face immediately becoming rigid. When she saw Shi Hao, her aloof and pure temperament became unsteady!
She really wanted to raise a sky overturning imprint and smack Shi Hao’s face, the urge too great.
Only, she knew that unless she merged with Qing Yi, she definitely wouldn’t be Shi Hao’s match. If she truly took action, she would only be suppressed and invite humiliation onto herself.
“Turns out it is Stone Clan dao brother, it’s a been a long time. Turns out you are perfectly fine, truly providential good luck.” Yue Chan said. Her skin was spotlessly white like jade. Even though she cursed inwardly, she still carried a smile on her face.
If it was in a different place, the two of them would definitely not interact with each other, likely directly fighting!
Yue Chan was thankful that this was Heavenly Deity Institution, not allowing them to clash with each other, or else the consequences would be difficult to predict. This ‘scoundrel’ was now even stronger.
“Fairy Yue Chan, why are you acting like this? Did you miss me?” Shi Hao laughed. They were sworn enemies, he had even been attacked when he was cultivating in seclusion, so there was naturally no good intentions to speak of.
He always wanted to help Qing Yi get rid of Yue Chan, and then allow the two of them to merge into one, completing Qing Yi. Only, after learning more about the situation, it really was hard to say who was completing who, the result likely harming Qing Yi.
After all, Yue Chan was the main body. If they truly merged, the one that would come out on top, who would dominate who, was really hard to say!
The expressions of those nearby all became a bit strange, feeling like this young supreme being was completely different from what they had imagined, actually disrespecting the exceptional beauty in their eyes.
“Huang isn’t as dignified as I thought he was…” Someone muttered, feeling like these words weren’t too offensive.
“But, it really is fun to walk around the various stalls even if the feet get sore～. This year I am lifting my ban on high spending!”
“It really was fun to but as much as you could from the little pocket money I was given as a kid…”
Well, in my original world, I would have still been officially a child though.
I went to the literature club, and didn’t have any part time jobs either. But to think that my first ever manual labour would be as an adventurer in a different world, really, no one can tell what life has in store for you.
“When I was a child I dreamt of conquering over all the types of sweets being sold in the stalls, but this year I’ll make sure to actually realise that dream～fufu～.”(Nyarko)
“It might not feel that amazing when you actually do it, you know?”(kurono)
“Oh come on～Don’t say such realistic things now～”
Today also, I kept on chatting idly with Nyarko. This will probably continue until Pine-san comes, I guess.
Although Nyarko doesn’t stop no matter what, but I guess I’m also the same since I never stop her either. Maybe what Nino said about me interfering in her job might be actually true.
“But still, doesn’t it feel like summer has already started before the festival? It’s become much hotter in the past few days.”(Kurono)
Probably, Irz village is on a lower latitude than Japan. I can already expect that the days would be extremely hot for a long time later on.
Will I be fine wearing my favourite [Demon’s embrace] under that scorching sun?
“Yes that is so..makes you want to drink something cold, right?”(nyarko)
In this world ruled by magic, ice isn’t something high priced.
Even a rank 1 magician can create a lot of ice. If I used Aten’s Ice Armour Shield, just how much shaved ice could be made out of that?
“Yeah, I really want to eat shaved ice, also ice creams-“(kurono)
As I remembered about such captivating ice items,
“What’s shaved ice or ice cream?”(nyarko)
“Eh, you don’t know?”
“Never heard of it. Is it a food from Kurono-san’s hometown?”
The Irz village had all sorts of eatables except junk food, so I thought they would have had ice cream. But, I see, in this world, at least near this village, Ice cream hasn’t been created yet.
“Yeah, it’s a pretty much staple item to be eaten during summers. But, alright, if you don’t have ice cream, then no choice but to create some!”(kurono)
“Ooh, a local dish from Kurono-san’s hometown!? This should be exciting!”
Well, I wonder if it’s fine to call shaved ice or ice cream a local dish…….
“Alright, tomorrow also looks like it’ll be hot as well, so I won’t take any quests today and try making some.” Chapter 48 – Popsicle
I who was thinking of making ice-cream, in particular popsicles, began collecting materials at once.
“Welcome, did you finally run out of potions Kurono?”
“Regrettably I’ve only used one so far.”
I’ve come to the adventurer’s purveyor, the Irz village item shop.
Now that I have become a regular customer over here, we don’t talk to each other using honorifics.
“I’m looking for wooden sticks.”
The thing I’m searching here is definitely not the raw materials for ice-cream but the flat stick which will become the handle of the popsicle.
“A wooden stick, then how about this white wooden stake? When stabbed into their heart, the vampire race who takes pride in their immortality will be killed with a single blow.”
“I’m sorry I didn’t make my request clear, I’m not here to buy a weapon today.”
Putting aside the foolish imaginations of a delicious frozen treat that can also be used to murder vampires, I explain the circumstances and what I’m looking for.
“Well the most suitable thing I have is grilled chicken skewers.” [TN: yakitori]
“That will do.”
In addition, I purchase a container to act as a mold when I solidify the ice. After promising to give him the popsicle if it turns out good, I leave the item shop.
After purchasing the ingredients which will become the raw materials for popsicle, I leave the Irz village and return back home.
After returning home I start making popsicles with Lily, or rather, without Lily making popsicles would not be possible.
“Now that it has come to this, let’s make popsicles.”
Lily blanky tilts her heads in confusion, it’s a normal reaction as she doesn’t know the existence of ice-cream.
“It is a dessert from my hometown which is cold, sweet, and delicious… at least when it is made successfully.”
I haven’t made popsicles since childhood.
But this time the materials and ingredients I have are different from modern Japan. If I fail then in the worst case I’ll end up with juice.
I’m a little anxious while I start making it but there is not a lot of work.
I smash an orange and grapes (which are genuinely like those on Earth unlike the false apple) which I bought to remove the juice. To each I add sugar and water to make an undiluted solution (it can almost be said to be juice).
I’m lucky that white sugar is circulating in this another world due to luck. Looking from the history, the making of sweets started when modern era started, after all the sweet items are luxury items.
However, here spices and salt are also available, so getting sugar was relatively easy. It seems like there will be no problems in making other sweets too.
In any case, I pour the undiluted solutions into the metal molds and add the skewer sticks to let it cool down.
As for the most important task, I ask Lily.
“Okay Lily, please freeze this with a little bit of ice magic.”
Without knowing how it will help, Lily uses her freezing magic.
For this thing, my black magic is totally useless.
My black color magic consists of materialization of substances, adding enchantments, and making dimensional spaces for now. I cannot use the common color magic elements like Ice or Fire, or rather, there is no color magic inside my body, so it is impossible for me to learn it.
Therefore, I asked Lily who can use color magic to some extent other than her inherent magic Extra.
Similar to when Lily boils tea, a chill gushes out in the same way she breathes fire.
The effect of the magic is powerful, in an instant the juice solution is frozen solid from Lily’s hard work.
To eat the ice candies right from the shell, just freezing it slowly won’t work. The freezing ingredient (a three to one ratio by weight of ice to salt) is used to freeze it in a few minutes.
But I can instantly freeze things without such a thing if I use magic.
“That’s enough now Lily.”
I stop Lily’s ice magic and reach out a hand to one of the containers.
While taking into consideration, if pulling it forcibly, it would uproot the skewer, I form an blade near the sides of the container using the black magic.
In front of the blade sticking out of the wall of rock of the container, the hardness of popsicle is as same as non-existent. I lighty open up the lid of the container.
And then, I smoothly pull the popsicle out of it.
“How is it?”
While receiving the gaze of curious Lily, I face the popsicle with seriousness that I’ve never shown.
As expected, there are no flavouring or coloring agents in it like the goods in the market, there is not much color in the popsicle and of course there is no scent.
But the taste should not be bad, while believing in that I put the popsicle inside my mouth.
The taste of the orange’s sourness and the sugar’s sweetness spreads inside the mouth along with the feeling of ice cubes crunching.
Yeah, this is without a doubt an orange flavoured popsicle!
“Yay, I made it just fine! Here, Lily you also eat it.”
I take out the popsicle using the same trick as before, and hand it to Lily.
She takes the popsicle while full of anticipation, and without hesitation bites into it.
“How is it, is it tasty?”
Seeing Lily eating it like crazy, I can get the idea of how tasty it is.
Even in another world, the kids love popsicles, as expected.
“Well, will you also eat the grape flavoured one?”
In this way, I remember about the nostalgic feeling of Japan, Lily also ate the frozen dessert while being happy, and so I completed the making of popsicles.
The next day, I came to guild for a midday meal today like yesterday.
“Oh, Nyarko-san, I made the ice-cream I mentioned yesterday, will you taste it?”
I hand over my best made popsicle to Nyarko, who came to me as always.
Besides me is Lily who has become a prisoner of the popsicle and is eating a grape flavoured one with relish.
“You really made it! Is it the one that Lily-san is eating?”
Seeing Lily who is eating it with relish, Nyarko’s eyes shine with anticipation.
“Yeah, it’s a popsicle made by freezing fruit juice――let’s skip over the tedious talks, try eating it. Ah, orange or grape, which one would you like?”
Then with orange, Nyarko answers. I take out the container stored inside the shadow space and hand over the popsicle to her.
WIth the same movements as Lily from yesterday, Nyarko bites into the popsicle.
“How is it?”
“Thi, this is――”
Nyarko eyes open wide in surprise, it seems like an lighting effect could appear behind her.
The Eastern Goblin Tribe had the ability to transcend space and kidnap jun Wu You and the rest just by sending a few people like the Fiery Golden Eyes Beast, an Innate that was the leader of the party, the Xiong Brothers and Mei Hua Brothers, warriors that had almost reached Innate. It couldn’t be denied that the humans in the Soaring Dragon Continent was really too weak compared to the other races in the Outer Realm and Demon Abyss.
“If we can persuade Zhi Zun, then we can probably advise her to collaborate with you, the Eastern Goblin tribe.” Yue Yang made a decision.
It would be a very difficult to do if one wanted to rise in power without a strong ally.
At least, he should not have such a strong enemy like the Eastern Goblin tribe when he was just starting out.
The Fiery Golden Eyes Beast was exhilarated.
If Yue Yang was an ordinary human youngster, he wouldn’t care about Yue Yang’s reaction. However, Yue Yang was an Innate, and furthermore, he had the ability to defeat the Southern Goblin King’s subordinates. This was the mysterious boy who had beaten the Nine-headed Goblin Marshal black and blue. His words, in the Fiery Golden Eyes Beast’s ears sounded more important than a King’s words.
He cupped his hands politely towards Yue Yang, “Later on, when I return back to the Palace, I will personally report everything to his Highness. As for the rest of your people, I believe they will be able to return soon.”
In one exchange, the Fiery Golden Eyes Beast had said a lot of the Eastern Goblin Tribe’s secrets. He had also said a lot of information with regards to the Tong Tian Tower.
In the end, Yue Yang and the four girls whispered their discussion for a while before deciding to leave.
The Fiery Golden Eyes Beast was not impatient to leave, he was worried that Yue Yang couldn’t find the exit to the Ancient Passage instead. He lead Yue Yang and the four girls towards the secret teleportation portal to the Soaring Dragon Continent. Seeing that Yue Yang and the four girls had safely teleported away, he finally looked for the teleportation portal to the Eastern Goblin Tribe area to report back to his Goblin King.
When Yue Yang and the four girls teleported back, they did not return to the Champion Island. Instead, they appeared in the middle of a desert.
Fortunately Yue Yang had prepared a teleportation scroll to the Champion Island beforehand. After a flash of white light, Yue Yang and the four girls returned back to the Champion Island that they had not left for even a day. However, they could only see bloody mess all over the horizon. There were demon corpses, parts of demon corpses lying everywhere… In the middle, there were also quite a few human corpses, most of them had parts of their bodies bitten off by the demons, the sight too horrible to see. The mysterious beauty Wu Xia and the sickly beauty immediately teamed up and separated to the east side to look for the old fox, who had led the Ivy Academies students. Princess Qian Qian and Luo Hua City Mistress also walked together towards the west. As for Yue Yang, he returned to the Championship Stadium because he remembered that they had left the older Mei Hua Brothers alive there. There were only the Drunken Cat Sister and the Panda Girl Niu Niu, he was afraid that they would be in danger.
Yue Yang hurried to the Championship Stadium. He realized that the whole Stadium had collapsed.
The older Mei Hua Brother lay dead in the middle of the piles of rocks.
The Drunken Cat Sister was lying on a huge collapsed rock and drinking the alcohol in her hands. There were countless scratches on her body, and the chest part of her body had also been destroyed. Her battered and bloodied breasts could faintly be seen.
The little Panda Girl Niu Niu leaned on the Drunken Cat Big Sis’s back, snoring as she slept, looking extremely tired.
Her expression was bitter, as if she was having a bad dream. Her whole body was smeared in blood, so much that she had almost turned into a red panda.
Yue Yang felt a pang in his heart. How could she be beaten up this badly? Why didn’t the Drunken Cat Big Sis take care of her daughter properly? Niu Niu was still so young, how could she fight against an Eastern Goblin Tribesman whose strength was almost at Innate level! Yue Yang rushed forward, took the little Niu Niu into his arms and channeled some Innate Qi. He then called forth Xiao Wen Li to release her white balls of healing light to heal her… Although Xiao Wen Li’s white light was more for purification purposes, it was also quite useful for healing superficial injuries.
“How’s your injuries?” After Yue Yang saved the little one, he hurried to save the big one, the Drunken Cat Big Sis.
“Do you have wine?” The Drunken Cat Big Sis shook her empty bottle of wine and threw it away. Then she reached out with her bloodied hand, asking for wine.
“Bullshit! Do you know you can’t drink when you are injured? Are you trying to die?!” Yue Yang tried to feel her pulse, and found out that the Drunken Cat Big Sis was heavily injured and was about to die. Many of her ribs were broken and her internal organs were all injured. Her body was pushed to her limits, if he had not return on time, her little life would have more or less ended. Yue Yang understood that she became like this because she had fought against the older Mei Hua Brother alone!
Only heaven would know how she managed to kill the older Mei Hua Brother whose powers were so much stronger than her. However, she had managed to kill him in the end. She even managed to endure until Yue Yang returned.
Yue Yang shook her slightly, “Why are there only the two of you? What about the rest? Xue Tan Lang? The old fox?
“I… don’t know. Everyone started fighting, I was alone… anyway, i’m tired, let me sleep for a while!” The Drunken Cat Big Sis collapsed to the ground. Previously, she had relied on her strong will to endure on and wait for Yue Yang’s return. The moment she felt relieved, all the fatigue came crashing onto her.
“Don’t sleep, if you sleep now, you’ll die.” Yue Yang was shocked.
He didn’t care anymore, he first took out the Vase Artifact he had gotten from the Twelve Zodiac Temples. He then poured two drops of the God’s Dew into the Drunken Cat Big Sis’s mouth.
Who cares if this God’s Dew was worth the whole of heavens? He would definitely not let this Big Sis die.
When the God’s Dew entered her body, bright rays of light shone out from the Drunken Cat Big Sis’s body and her injuries healed quickly.
Yue Yang tried to help her healing with his Innate Qi. He tear out the Drunken Cat Big Sis’s tattered clothes and treated her broken ribs. He then prepared a wet towel to wipe the blood away from her body. When he discovered her white, creamy chest, he hurriedly covered her with Yue Yang’s clothes. Although they were not of the same size, it was better than nothing. When Yue Yang was changing her clothes, as he realized that the Drunken Cat Big Sis was completely unconscious, he couldn’t help but to touch those mountain peaks for a while. The feeling he felt in his hands was indescribable, so good that he felt like flying to heaven… This Drunken Cat Big Sis’s breast was firm and bouncy, its shape beautiful beyond compare. If it wasn’t for the fact that he was afraid that Wu Xia, Wu Hen, Princess Qian Qian and Luo Hua City Mistress would arrive and saw his perverted ways, he wouldn’t have wanted to stop grabbing her breasts.
Alright then, goodbye, breasts! I will forever cherish the memory!
This Big Sister would belong to him sooner or later. He would reserve her first, and thought about wooing her later in the future. He would teach her slowly in the future….
Furthermore, there was also an advantage for getting her, he would get an extra little Panda girl if he succeeded. The Big Sis Mom and her little girl Niu Niu, the world’s most evil mother-daughter pair, could only amount as much in the end.
Yue Yang started to drool as his mind started to wander. Xiao Wen Li was a little confused with his actions, she tilted her head as she watched. When Yue Yang saw that he was teaching his daughter the wrong thing, he hurriedly stroked her hair softly and kissed her forehead, pretending to be a good daddy. Xiao Wen Li was indeed easy to manipulate. Her eyes closed as her lips spread into a big smile.
The mysterious beauty Wu Xia suddenly teleported there with her teleportation ability.
She nodded towards Yue Yang, “I found Bing-er and Yi Nan. They are fine, but they had been ambushed and fought a great battle afterwards. They suffered many injuries. Your three brothers weren’t that capable, they immediately lost their consciousness after getting beaten by their enemies. But your big dog, Hui Tai Lang, was really powerful. It had actually bitten off three Demon Generals and one Demon Commander. It killed of a whole Demon Legion on his own, it was really a good dog. Its abilities were really not bad, I think if you give him Huo Wei’s Orb, it might just evolve into an Innate-ranked beast…”
“Where’s the old fox?” Yue Yang did not hear the old fox name from her. He knew that the old fox would never escape on his own. Could it be that he was killed by the demons?
“We can’t find him, seems like he is fighting a strong opponent.” When Wu Xia noticed that the Drunken Cat Big Sis was wearing Yue Bing’s clothes, she suddenly grabbed Yue Yang’s hands and smelled it.
“I honestly didn’t touch…” Yue Yang spoke filled with guilty conscience.
“Really?” Wu Xia glared at Yue Yang with a gaze that could kill someone, a gaze that was even scarier than Luo Hua City Mistress’ Aurora.
“Alright, I admit, I did touch it a few times. There’s no other way, I couldn’t control my own hands.” Yue Yang knew that it would be best to be honest at this time, especially when he was almost unable to hide the secret. His life’s philosophy was – lie whenever you can and be honest if you can’t lie.
“It’s okay to touch it a few times. I wasn’t reprimanding you.” Wu Xia laughed a little. Hearing her words, Yue Yang was flabbergasted. This couldn’t be. Was she always that open-minded?
“Did I hear wrongly?” Yue Yang really couldn’t believe his own ears.”
“How does your hand feel now?” Wu Xia asked him back coldly. “Ah, it’s alright… Just vaguely.” Yue Yang thought that if he said the wrong thing, she would definitely looked at him full of spite. If the Drunken Cat Big Sis woke up and found out about this, she would definitely bury him alive. Hence, he decided that he should just speak the truth.
“Vaguely?” Wu Xia’s bright eyes shone with an “are you sure?” look.
“Most probably because there was no comparison, no previous samples…” Yue Yang wanted to say that he could only be sure of the feeling in his hands of she let him touch hers a little.
“I understand, I’ll give you a chance to do it!” Wu Xia’s words made Yue Yang think that he had heard a goddess’ voice.
“Really?” Yue Yang’s heart was filled with exhilaration.
“If you could save Cousin Wu Hen, touch Princess Qian Qian’s and Luo Hua City Mistress’, I really wouldn’t mind.” Wu Xia really liked to see Yue Yang’s expression now. She looked at him with her clear eyes, not blinking at all.
“So you would only be liberal at the expense of others…” Yue Yang cried out in dismay. Of course Princess Qian Qian, Lup Hua and the others were also his targets, but the one he wanted to touch now was thsi cute bookworm Wu Xia. He felt that it would be the hardest to capture this girl, but he would feel the most sense of accomplishment afterwards. Although he loved boobs, be it D-cup, E-cup, F-cup or more, none of that matters compared to this perfect snowy peaks of this Wu Xia!
“Yue Yang, you must take note of one thing. You are now engaged to big sister Luo Hua and little sister Yi Nan. I’m no longer your fiancee, if I’m not wrong, I had allowed you to rescind your engagement a year ago. Hence, actually, I have no relationship with you at all.” Wu Xia’s words finally ensured Yue Yang that this mysterious bookworm girl was Miss Xue that was engaged to the pitiful guy, Xue Wu Xia.
“You know that that’s fake. I’ve never written any kind of engagement cancellation letter. Someone had impersonated me!” Hearing her confession, Yue Yang hurriedly grabbed her hands emotionally.
“True that. But I’ve never agreed to be your fiancee from the beginning,” Wu Xia released her hands from his.
“Then agree to it now.” Yue Yang was the best in pushing his will onto others.
“No.” Wu Xia rejected him in one breath.
“Why? I’m serious about this. Although I didn’t have time to prepare an engagement ring now, but there’s something I have been wanting to say to you. I had tried to hide it for a long time, holding it in inside…” Even Yue Yang was almost moved to tears by his own love story. A love that transcends space and time, if his story was made into a movie, wouldn’t the audience be moved to tears?
All those other cliched love stories in the movies should just be eliminated, only his love story that transcends time and space could be called true love!
Yue Yang was sure that he liked Wu Xia, one hundred percent sure.
This was not just a matter of spending his whole life with her and risking his life in battles for her. It was that kind of feeling in his heart that was hard to describe, a soul’s calling, a thirst that he would forever long for in his life. It was a destiny made in heaven, an indescribable chemistry that existed before they were even born… Other than her, there was no other woman more compatible with him.
She was his other half that he was looking for in this other world.
She was the final dream that his heart yearned for.
Yue Yang was extremely sure that he loved this girl. He had loved her for a long time. He started to have feelings for her after their life-and-death battle with Marquis of Zi Jin. Afterwards, they went through even more life-threatening battles, and his feeling grew more and more.
Although Yue Yang also liked the tigress Princess Qian Qian and Luo Hua City Mistress who had a very unique way of laughing, the extremely weak and fragile sickly beauty and the cute Yi Nan… He even had a mild mother and sister-complex. However, the person that he loved the most, missed the most and thirsted for the most was still this kind, intelligent, talented and mysterious beauty, Xue Wu Xia!
“Stop it, you don’t have to say sweet words of lies. With regards to men who were touching other girl’s breasts five minutes after separating from me, don’t you think I should seriously think it over first?” Xue Wu Xia’s eyes sparkled. Her words made perfect sense. If that man in question wasn’t himself, Yue Yang would agree with her one hundred percent.
“Please listen to this sinner’s arguement first.” Yue Yang hurriedly give it his all and prepared to use his silver tongue to reverse the truth.
His argument was that: if a person was extremely hungry, he would even eat dog’s food.
Because beggars cam’t be chosers.
On the contrary, if a person ate until they were full and satisfied everyday, they wouldn’t even care looking at big chunks of meat and fish. His underlying meaning was that if there was a goddess that could service him day and night and give him a blissful sexual life, then he would definitely be a good boy and not touch other people’s boobs at his whims. On the contrary, if he had no other way, he would be forced to take risks out of desperation. He might even be driven to the point that even if he had to kill tomorrow, he had to touch some boobs today.
Yue Yang’s argument was also logical, no matter if it was according to the perspectives of human nature, mental health and physical health, it all fit the bill of a nerd’s expectations who had been deprived of women for far too long.
Who doesn’t go through puberty as a girl? Who doesn’t have sexual fantasies as a guy?
In the end, Yue Yang used these words as conclusion. Even he himself was moved by his speech. He said, did you think it was easy being a nerd?
When Wu Xia heard his argument, she nodded slightly, “Hmm, good speech.”
Yue Yang was excited and he immediately grabbed her beautiful hands, “Are you saying yes?”
The mysterious beauty who liked to read books, Yue Yang’s fiancee Miss Xue, Xue Wu Xia, revealed a little smile in her eyes as she said, “I’m very sorry, Yue Yang. I can only say that I sympathized with your difficulties, but I can’t possibly offer my life to feed you because you were a hungry wolf almost driven into desperation, right? This shouldn’t be the reason for me getting together with you. Yue Yang, wait until you have a better reason to persuade me before arguing with me again. We’ll see your performance. I won’t deny that you are an extremely talented genius in terms of combat and summoning skills. But in terms of wooing girls, I daresay you are a huge idiot…”
Yue Yang didn’t quite agree with her.
He thought that his wooing methods were still alright. At least there were already quite a few girls in his circle.
Although he wasn’t at the level like “A leaf that didn’t stop passing through a field of ten thousands flowers” he was at least at the level of “The bright moon starles the crow on the slanting bough, At midnight the breeze is cool, cicadas shrill; The fragrance of the paddy foretells a good love story, and wolves howl far and wide. Seven or eight stars above the horizon, Two or three drops of rain before the hill; With no money to rent a room we went to the forest edge, having a lover’s rendezvous right at the river side.”
(Shiro: The first phrase meant a guy who never wavered loving a girl although he had many female suitors. The second one was a modified version of a famous poem, Xi Jiang Ye – http://chinaenglish.com.cn/html/englishliterature/2013-06/50492.html)
Alright, even though they haven’t really had a lover’s rendezvous, he had already thought about it in his mind.
With regards to Yue Yang’s self-confidence, Xue Wu Xia could only slap her palm to her forehead after listening to his preaching.
“Don’t you think you should capture the easiest girl to woo first? For example, my cousin Shui Wu Hen. Although she rejected your offer to heal her on the surface, if you really force yourself on her, she would be okay with it, because she had chosen you in her heart. As long as you don’t disappoint her in the future, that would definitely be possible. There is also Big Sister Luo Hua, who is even an easier target than her. She love romance, you can just take her to moon-watching and whisper romantic words like “Before my bed, the moon is shining bright. On the floor, there were two pairs of shoes”, those kinds of poems. You can also plant some flowers with her, she would easily fall into your lies.”
When Yue Yang heard this, he was crying inside. He definitely did not have enough practice.
He hurriedly asked for more advice, his voice extremely sincere, “How about Princess Qian Qian?”
The mysterious Xue Wu Xia who liked to read books was definitely a class A beauty. If Yue Yang had not heard it himself, he would never believe that she would teach him how to capture girls. This was really unbelievable, but Yue Yang likes it!
Xue Wu Xia then lightly said, “Princess Qian Qian liked to practice her combat skills. You can try to get closer to her from here, help her practice. Furthermore, that tigress only had a sharp mouth. Her heart is soft. Maybe her mouth is denying you, but you can use practicing combat skills as an excuse to touch her body. She would definitely not do anything to you. Sooner or later, you will get closer to her, and your relationship would naturally get more intimate.”
In this world, perhaps only Xue Wu Xia would teach her own fiance how to woo other girl.
Yue Yang was a little confused.
Why would she help himself so much?
If he had captured the other three girls, what benefit would it be to her?
Of course, he didn’t hthink that it was a bad thing…. He thought that if his future wife could teach him how to win girls over, he could chase after girls more boldly than Xiao Bao. If he did not manage to win over Wu Hen, Luo Hua and Qian Qian, he would let down his future wife’s expectations!
(Shiro: Xiao Bao is the main character in the Deer and the Cauldron, a Chinese Novel. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Deer_and_the_Cauldron)
In the end, Yue Yang really wanted to ask Wu Xia how he could win her over.
However, he thought that her reply would be a punch to his face.
Yue Yang thought that he should drop the subject. The hardest one should be won over by his own strength, this way, when he managed to really win her over, he would feel a greater sense of accomplishment!
“My deepest gratitudes for your advice. Please allow me to repay you with my body!” Yue Yang pretended to be grateful and suddenly pounced on Wu Xia, hugging her tightly in his embrace. As he enjoyed her sweet smell and touch, he felt that if he could have such a girl in his life, he had not lived his life in vain. Who cares about getting transported to another world if he could meet such a beauty? It was worth it even if he had to be transported for a hundred times.
It was the first time that Yue Yang felt eternally grateful towards the Old Daoist Priest who kicked his butt into another dimension.
When he thought about it, that old fellow had treated him quite well. He had not only sent him the Heavenly Sword Goddess, he had also allowed him to meet so many perfect, class A beauties in the Soaring Dragon Continent. That sin of himm for kicking him to another world, he would forgive him if he surrenedered his granddaughter to him!
That wonderful feeling of holding Wu Xia’s body made Yue Yang think that he would never forget this feeling his whole life!
If it was possible, he really wished that he could hold her for his whole life.
With regard to Yue Yang’s perverted moves, Xue Wu Xia knitted her brows slightly and said, “What do you mean by this? Taking an advantage of me when you have the chance?”
“Long Ce and the Imperial Princess!”
Long Yu saw the Princess, clad in a snow-white dress, entering the martial arena,.
No doubt, the entire Tang kingdom wished to watch the seven sects’ competition.
The Princess followed Chu Chao Sheng, with the sole intent of limiting his actions, ensuring that he doesn’t act rashly.
Although the Princess didn’t have a high cultivation level, her status in the royal clan compelled Prince Chu Chao Sheng to dare not to take any irrational decision.
Chu Chao Sheng, accompanied by Long Ce and Chu Feng, finally arrived at the central stage and occupied his seat.
After a brief pause, Chu Chao Sheng finally spoke, “The seven sects’ competition has a long history in our Tang kingdom. Over the years, this competition has proved to be the best platform for the martial disciples of our kingdom to showcase their talents and improve their skills. The disciples, who won this competition, grew up to be the pillars of this kingdom…”
After the initial few minutes of introduction to the legacy of the competition, Chu Chao Sheng soon jumped to the rules of the seven sects’ competition.
His powerful voice and charming way of speech had left the audience smitten.
“The seven sects’ competition will last nearly the entire month. There will be two phases of the competition. The first phase will be the knockout rounds.”
Chu Chao Sheng looked towards all the disciples present there, “In the knockout rounds, contestants of same cultivation level will be pitted against each other. Only the strongest one-seventh of the total participants will earn a certain number of points based on their performance in the matches.”
Chu Chao Sheng’s instruction was immediately understood by everyone.
The best performers would earn points. The Legend of the Chaos Knight and His Elemental Girlfriend The better they perform, the more points they would earn.
The final rankings would be declared based upon the number of points each sect had earned.
The first round of the knockout rounds would have Wudao eighth layer participants fighting each other, till only one-seventh of them are left.
For example, there were seventy participants with a cultivation level of Wudao eighth layer. In the first round, all the seventy participants would simultaneously fight each other till only ten of them were left standing in the arena.
The second round would have Wudao ninth layer participants trying to eliminate each other, the third round would have the fight of Zhenling first layer participants and so on…
Since only the disciples less than twenty five years of age could participate in the seven sects’ competition and the strongest competitor was Yu Qianning with a cultivation level of Zhenling fifth layer, the first phase of the competition would have six rounds, each of which would be organised after a gap of two days in between.
People who emerged victorious in the first round would gain one point each; the winners of the second round would earn two points each; winners of the third round would be awarded with three points each, and so on…
Being the only participant with a cultivation of Zhenling fifth layer, Yu Qianning was not supposed to fight in the knockout rounds; she would automatically be awarded with seven points.
Because of Yu Qianning, the Qiansi sect would gain the lead over the other sects right from the beginning of the competition.
The other six sects couldn’t argue about it since Yu Qianning indeed had entered Zhenling fifth layer and was the only participant with such a high cultivation level.
Once the knockout rounds were over, the core rounds would start.
The rules of the core round were a little complex and Chu Chao Sheng had mentioned nothing about them. However, Long Yu knew that to enter the core rounds, one had to emerge victorious in the knockout rounds.
The knockout rounds pitted martial artists with same cultivation level against each other. You Of All People The fight was fierce but fair.
However, the core rounds had no such rule. Only the genuinely strong participants could emerge victorious in the core rounds.
Long Yu was sure that he would have to face Yu Qianning in the core rounds.
“There’s no way these Wudao eighth layer and ninth layer competitors would last long in this competition…”
Long Yu thought to himself.
“These disciples will compete with honor and all the fairness, but would Chu Chao Sheng be fair to them?”
No doubt, Chu Chao Sheng had made some arrangements to ensure his daughter’s victory. One of these arrangements was providing her with all the resources to quickly enhance her cultivation level.
No one knew what else Chu Chao Sheng had planned. Only time could unravel this mystery.
“We will get started with the first knockout round. All the contestants with cultivation level of Wudao eighth layer may gather in the martial arena.”
Chu Chao Sheng smiled and continued, “This Imperial Martial Arena is the place where the strongest of the royal guards practise martial arts. I know you all must be feeling honored to have come here.”
Indeed, they must’ve been feeling honored.
The participants of the seven sects’ competition were praised and respected in the entire Tang kingdom. The winners’ names remained etched forever in the history as they shot to fame instantly.
However, this year’s seven sects’ competition had lost its spirit; it had become a mere device of Chu Chao Sheng’s plan. That was why, most of the people were not feeling honored about being a part of this competition. They were all participating with the sheer spirit of defending their sects.
“Be careful during the fight! If at any point, you feel that you won’t be able to fight any longer, just concede. The match is not more valuable than your life!”
Ling Han, who wasn’t sitting too far from Long Yu, was instructing his younger sister, Ling Yiyue.
Lin Yiyue had a cultivation level of Wudao eighth layer, so she was going to fight in the very first knockout round.
The first round was going to witness the largest number of contestants. Zhentian sect had eleven Wudao eighth layer disciples, who were going to participate in the first round.
Ling Yiyue was one of them.
The present situation of Zhentian sect wasn’t advantageous at all. In the knockout rounds, they could only trust Hanbing sect to co-operate with them. The other sects might turn their backs and severely injure the Zhentian disciples.
Although Allure sect might not target the disciples of Zhentian sect, Tibetan Fire sect and Knife Cut sect couldn’t spare any of the Zhentian disciples!
One’s life was more important than any match. If one wasn’t able to defeat others, then one could at least save their life by conceding at right time.
“Brother Ling, rest assured. We will keep Sister Ling safe.”
The other Wudao eighth layer disciples immediately stood up and said to Ling Han.
In such a knockout match, unity was the only key to protect oneself as well as one’s fellow disciples.
“Brother, don’t worry about me. Although I’m not too strong, I won’t be subdued easily.”
Ling Yiyue’s spirit was indomitable. There was no way she was giving up without a good fight. She wanted to contribute some points to her sect’s success.
In spite of being just a Wudao eighth layer martial artist, Ling Yiyue’s perseverance was no less than that of the strongest of warriors.
“All of you, please be careful.”
Ling Han nodded. He was still worried about their well-being.
Ling Yiyue was too young as compared to the other experts of Wudao eighth layer; several of them were about twenty years old.
In spite of having the same cultivation level, Ling Yiyue might lack the required battle experience.
The matches of Wudao eighth layer disciples were much simpler than those of Zhenling realm disciples. They only used simple martial skills, neither of which could endanger the opponent’s life.
Certainly, the seven sects’ competition provided the competitors an environment to learn from each other and make progress.
Therefore, killing another contestant would cause a huge uproar among the participating sects.
Sparing the opponent’s life was the noblest gesture one could display during the matches. However, the knockout rounds got under the skin of the contestants to such an extent that they strived to survive till the end, even if it involved causing great harm to the opponent.
Only their strength could help them survive!
The first knockout round was going to commence soon.
During warm-up, all the participants were carefully observing their opponents.
There were eleven participants from Zhentian sect, while the other sects had about ten or eleven participants each.
All in all, there were a total of seventy seven participants ready to fight in the first round, out of which only eleven would earn some points in the end.
If all the eleven disciples of Zhentian sect managed to stay in the fight till the end, the sect would gain eleven points at once!
Which sects would be able to be among the top eleven?
The people could only wait and watch. Chapter 20: The odd metal tablet
Having the same fate as Ye Jing’s fleshly body, Ye Jing’s belongings were entirely relegated to scrap.
Even the low-grade artifacts on his body were also swallowed up into the abyss. The only things had had managed to escape destruction were the abnormal red ring, and the strange metal plate that had fallen into the hands of Yan Zhaoge.
Massaging the metal plate, Yan Zhaoge thought to himself: “This item is definitely not simple.”
Also, the seed of Li Flame True Fire had finally fallen into his hands, a fact that in and of itself made the trip to the Sealing Dragon Abyss worthwhile.
While protecting the crowd of disciples and convening with his black-clothed bodyguards, Yan Zhaoge and his men faced towards the roiling Sealing Dragon Abyss and mustered all there energy to shield the cliff face.
After what seemed like an interminable wait, the violent storm of energy gradually began to die down.
The disciples who were being shielded were able to come out, involuntarily let out sighs of relief. The chaotic streams of baleful qi upending space, even though they was not in the very depths of the abyss, was still able to completely transform heaven and earth.
Yan Zhaoge spoke out: “After these unexpected events, you disciples are not suited to stay in the Sealing Dragon Abyss. This time’s mission; the part pertaining to you can be considered complete. Let us depart from this place.”
The other disciples immediately nodded their heads in affirmation.
Everything that happened before was sudden and unexpected, making most people feel like they were unable to regain their bearings. Even now, many of them felt muddleheaded from all the things that happened.
Even though within the Broad Creed Mountain there was no shortage of Martial Grandmaster level experts, this crowd of young disciples had never been so closely involved with a struggle between two Martial Grandmasters.
After experiencing an event that had expanded the scope of their worldview so much, many of them still had lingering fears.
Ye Jing’s unfortunate demise had also left a shadow of grief on the whole affair.
Yan Zhaoge cast a glance at them: “Junior apprentice-brother Ye this time unfortunately encountered a big disaster. His fate is unknown, but I have great faith that he is not someone to die prematurely. I trust that he may be able to turn this disaster into good fortune.”
On hearing these words, the others were slightly startled. They had only seen Ye Jing fall into the abyss as a result of the Crimson Spirit Flags elder’s attack, but later, were unable to see anything clearly due to the black mist and were only able to faintly hear some sounds.
Yan Zhaoge faintly nodded his head: “Speaking of brother Ye’s life or death at this time is still too early.”
The surrounding disciples all let out a breath of air. Though normally, most of Ye Jing’s relationships with them could be said to be mediocre at most, at this time, no one held their past relationships against him.
However, that feeling of being helpless and waiting for death that they had felt before a Martial Grandmaster’s attack had caused all of them to become closer in the face of the great calamity.
At this moment, almost all of them had put their trust in Yan Zhaoge. On hearing him say that Ye Jing might yet return from the dead, all of them felt relieved.
Yan Zhaoge continued: “However, when that Martial Grandmaster suddenly appeared and declared himself to be sworn brothers with junior apprentice-brother Ye, it was quite unanticipated.”
The crowd of disciples took this moment to think back on the matter. Examining their memories, they too felt that this matter was almost inconceivable.
Sikong Qing’s gaze wavered slightly for an instant, but it was instantly caught by Yan Zhaoge: “Junior apprentice-sister Sikong seems to know something?”
“That person, surnamed Han, has a grievance with the Eastern Tang Principal Elder Yan. His temper is irascible and violent, while his martial skills seem to be demonic and tyrannical in nature. That Martial Grandmaster, if I haven’t remembered incorrectly, should be the “Ghost Hatchet Elder”, Han Sheng.
Yan Zhaoge spoke: “The Elder you spoke of has already been missing for many years, and also had great enmity with Elder Yan. That he would suddenly appear in the vicinity of the Eastern Tang is a matter of great import.”
Sikong Qing stayed silent for a moment, then responded: “I previously came to the Eastern Tang in my travels, and visited the neighboring Sealing Dragon Abyss. While in the mountain range around the abyss, I suddenly lost consciousness.”
“Afterwards, it was Ye Jing, who had yet to the join the sect,who saved me. However, regarding the matter of the Ghost Hatchet Elder, I really don’t know anything else.”
“However, that time’s foe was an expert at the boundary of the martial scholar realm. With his strength, it would have been impossible for junior apprentice-brother Ye to save me, leaving me to wonder how we escaped. I was always puzzled as that this matter, but it was difficult for me to probe further, so I just ascribed it to be the will of heaven.”
Yan Zhaoge inclined his head, and did not continue his questioning: “Junior apprentice-sister Sikong’s words; I can trust them. Seeing as you are also in the dark on this matter, then we’ll have to wait until we find junior apprentice-brother Ye until we can shed light on this issue. However, these matters will have to be accurately reported back to the sect, meaning that this issue is no longer just a private one between the two of you.”
Sikong Qing responded: “I understand.”
The party finally emerged with great difficulty from the Sealing Dragon Abyss. The young disciples, upon seeing the light of the sky again, burst into cheers.
Yan Zhaoge slapped a sound transmission tablet and rendezvoused with a middle-aged black clothed man. Together, they sent out a multitude of communications while the crowd of disciples waited at their current location.
Very quickly, Ah Hu was the first to hurry over. After him, a number of other cultivators also rushed over. Among them, there were the Broad Creed Mountain cultivators dispatched to guard the Eastern Tang, as well as member of the Eastern Tang army.
Ning Guangyao was confused by how the situation had progressed.
“You previously voiced out such ridiculous reasons for refusing to meet my wife… But now you want to convince me for the fact that Ruoxi is my wife?!
“Haha! Premier Ning, you sure are a thrifty businessman.
“Since you’re ordering me around using the relationship between you and Ruoxi, you might as well just instruct me to start a witch hunt on all your political dissidents. Oh wait, I can even slash the presidents of other countries apart. What do you think, my-beloved-father-in-law?”
“How dare you speak of me like that! This is for the mutual harmony of our two clans, for the order of our country!”
“I don’t give a shit about this damn country or the heavens! I’m an ordinary man, the husband to my wife! I would never wish for my wife to be depressed and agitated by her heartless father! I want her to be able to live her life happily! Anything else, you can count me out!”
Ning Guangyao was furious. His hand trembled as he pointed at Yang Chen, unable to raise his voice.
Yang Chen went further out before stopping and turning back. “Premier Ning, I am never considered a good man. In fact I’m an utter mess, perverted, motivation-lacking. I can’t help myself but always mess around with other women. Ruoxi has confronted me about it several times and she has every right to do so. She hated to her guts how I can never wholeheartedly love her and I’m aware of that. I’m guilty and repentant for my actions. Which is why I would never raise my voice towards her. However, I will spend the rest of my life compensating for my sins.
“But even a scumbag like me pales in comparison to a man like you. Ruoxi comparatively is much more fortunate than my late mother-in-law.
“At the very least, I have never once thought of leaving any of the women I love behind, regardless of the circumstance.
“Oh yeah, one more thing. I am very glad that I didn’t bring Ruoxi here to meet you, because you don’t deserve it. You don’t deserve to be her father and you never will!”
“Get out of my sight!” Ning Guangyao exploded.
Yang Chen gave him a look of despise and disdain, before he scorned and left.
As he made his way out of that problematic household, Yang Chen stared up at the overcast sky. Under feeble rays of sunlight he mumbled, “Babe Ruoxi, if it was not for you, I would’ve butchered that trash of an existence.”
Yang Chen took a deep breath of the relatively fresh air, before he suppressed his anger and drove away.
After the ruckus it was way past lunchtime, but Yang Chen didn’t want to miss out on lunch, so he dialed up Tang Wan’s number.
“You despicable bastard, with that young policewoman by your side how dare you still dial my number?” Tang Wan’s tone was noticeably hostile.
Yang Chen gave a bitter smile. “Well I’m calling you right now, ain’t I? Should we go for lunch? I’ll go pick you up.”
Tang Wan grumbled, “Did you bother to check the time? I’ve had lunch with Tang Tang a while ago. We’re on our way to visit some relatives right now. I don’t have time for you. Besides, I’m going back to Zhonghai in 2 days, why don’t you go look for Cai Yan instead?”
“Alright…” Yang Chen was filled with disappointment. He figured that someone mature like Tang Wan would be a great company for him right now.
Tang Wan felt Yang Chen’s dejection over the phone. She replied with sympathy, “Next time… I promise. I’m really occupied at the moment… Erm… why don’t we have dinner tonight instead?”
“It’s alright, I’m not a kid.” Yang Chen told the mother-daughter pair to rest more before ending the call.
He then scrolled through his contact list, understanding that there weren’t many people who would be keen for lunch at this hour. But nonetheless he called Cai Yan, believing that it would be great to be in her company.
Once the call got connected, a loud noise could be heard. With her high-pitched voice, Cai Yan taunted, “Bastard, why did you call? Don’t you know that I’m busy!”
Yang Chen felt gloomy. Similarly being a woman, Tang Wan was caring and considerate even when she was jealous. Why was Cai Yan the complete opposite?
“I haven’t had lunch yet. Just asking if you and your sister would fancy a lunch with me?” Yang Chen frowned. “Where are you, why is it so loud?”
Cai Yan chuckled. “Of course it’s loud. Elder Sister and I are having fun at the bird market right now. You coming by right now would be perfect. We haven’t had our lunch yet so we’re both starving!”
“The bird market?” Yang Chen was dumbfounded. What a peculiar pair of sisters, spending their freetime in the bird market over a shopping mall?
Regardless Yang Chen was not bothered by the destination, as long as he got to leave the business with the Ning clan aside. So there he was navigating on the GPS towards the biggest bird market in Beijing.
As his car came to a stop, Cai Ning and Cai Yan stood by the entrance in all smiles. The sisters were dressed in red and blue respectively, with an identical Levi’s vests and denim shorts, clearly going for a matching look. The two girls were undeniably pleasant to the eyes, one was sporty and outgoing, the other was elegant and sophisticated.
Yang Chen instantly felt much better, as he went towards them with both his arms wide open.
Unsurprisingly, however, they both instantly dodged his advances, as Cai Ning’s face turned little red. “Stop, there are people looking!”
Yang Chen was slightly annoyed at that. If it were An Xin, she would have instantly responded with a tight embrace. But he understood nonetheless that everyone was different. He pointed at the enormous bird cage that Cai Yan was holding, covered in an old rag cloth. “What did you buy?” Best Part
Cai Yan stuck out her tongue childishly and remarked cheerfully, “Elder Sister got this starling for me! When she was still training in Sichuan, she would come into contact with various flora and fauna, so she can differentiate birds really well! It will learn very quickly if you teach it a phrase or two.”
“That also requires patience on your part,” added Cai Ning.
“Honestly, Elder Sister, don’t you have any faith in your own sister?” Cai Yan rebuffed.
Cai Ning nodded without any hesitation. “I don’t.”
Cai Yan pouted and sulked. Her face looked as if she had bitten into a bitter gourd.
Yang Chen reached out to squeeze her cheeks and said, “Alright, stop pouting. Let’s grab something to eat. Are there any good restaurants nearby?
“Yeah, yeah!” Cai Yan nodded enthusiastically. “I know this great place on the east side of this market. Ancient Godly Monarch It’s a restaurant serving Hunan cuisine, and even the air in the place carries a faint spiciness to it. Can you handle spicy food?.”
“Cut the crap. Let’s go.” Yang Chen watched Cai Yan’s mood lift and let her lead the way to the restaurant.
When they arrived at the restaurant that Cai Yan mentioned, the number of patrons were already thinning out. They walked to the second floor and seated themselves at a table that had a bird’s-eye view of the street.
Even though there was a weird scent in the air, it was a unique dining atmosphere nonetheless.
Yang Chen wasn’t eating simply out of hunger, but out of a sense of liking and appreciation for food. It was a deep-set habit as well. Whenever he was feeling low, he could always snap out of his funk by binge eating. He flipped through the menu, and promptly rattled off a number of dishes to the waiter.
“Are you some sort of pig? Why are you ordering so much?” Cai Yan’s eyes widened.
Yang Chen rolled his eyes at that. “Can’t you be more delicate?”
Cai Yan just grunted at that. “If you waste even a single grain of rice, you’re doomed. I’ll stuff it right down your throat if I have to,” she said huffily.
Yang Chen was at a loss of words and could only smile bitterly. One moment she was so obedient and the next, she became so aggressive. It was tiring to keep up with her ever-shifting moods.
Can Ning just silently sipped a cup of tea which was of rather mediocre quality and didn’t speak a word. She broke her silence like she suddenly thought of something and asked, “Yanyan, when you bought the bird, did you ask the seller about the kind of bird feed to get?”
Cai Yan stilled, and blinked in confusion. “Elder Sister, you didn’t tell me that I had to get bird feed.”
At that, Yang Chen just froze and Cai Ning’s face twitched.
After a moment, Cai Ning smiled warmly and asked, “Why don’t you go over to the store now while we’re still here? The store is just nearby, and the store owner might just give you a little something. Besides, you need to feed the starling, if you want your starling to sing.”
Cai Yan nodded eagerly then stood up to retrieve the bird cage. “In that case, I’ll head over right now. Don’t start eating without me!”
“You can visit the store by yourself, so why do you need to bring the cage along with you?” Yang Chen said dismally.
“Hmph, it’s none of your business! I’m going to deepen my bond with the bird.” With that, she stuck out her tongue before she turned and rushed downstairs.
Yang Chen sighed loudly and shook his head. “Ning’er, has your sister always been like this?”
Cai Ning understood what he was trying to say, unable to hold back her amusement. The edge of her lips twitched and she said, “You know, when my grandfather was still alive, he called the whole family together, and told us all one thing.”
“What did he say?” Yang Chen asked curiously.
“Grandfather said something along the lines of, ‘throw Cai Yan into a tiger’s den, and she’ll befriend it.'”
Yang Chen nearly spat out his tea and burst into laughter. “Isn’t this her adorable side? At times, she acts just like a child and yet she wants to become a violent policewoman.”
Cai Ning turned to Yang Chen who was thoroughly amused. Her tender gaze was directed at him as she said, “I guess your mood is much better now.”
Yang Chen halted in his movements. “How could you tell that I was in a bad mood?”
Cai Ning grinned. “Because it’s your feelings, that’s why.”
Yang Chen felt touched and reached out his right hand to hold her hands before asking, “Ning’er, can you answer a question of mine?”
“I’m such a problematic person with so many personal issues, yet how did I still end up with so much love from you all?” Yang Chen said disbelievingly. “Sometimes I think it’s just because I have money, or because I can fight and possess authority to a certain extent but… does any of those things really matter?
“I’m not even capable of providing any of you with the love you deserve. With your own charm and merit, finding a wealthy person who will treat you well wouldn’t even be an issue…” Yang Chen trailed off, at a loss for words.
“What happened?” Cai Ning interjected and added, “Have you lost faith in yourself?”
Yang Chen couldn’t bring himself to form his next words but when he finally did, he said, “The whole situation feels really surreal to me if I’m being honest. When I was at the entrance of the market and saw you two sisters waiting for me, I thought to myself that the feeling of being looked forward to was really nice, y’know? Yet in an instant, I thought that I was being too extravagant with my emotions.”
Cai Ning regarded him silently and reached out her hand to hold Yang Chen’s palm in her own. “Are you alright? You’ve never acted like this before. Solo Leveling Character What happened today?”
Yang Chen laughed bitterly at that. “Maybe it’s because I met someone who seemed to have it all, but was actually hiding all his deeds behind a facade of luxury. It got me thinking about how none of these matters and will eventually fade away anyway.”
Trapped in an ever-worsening spiral of thoughts, Yang Chen gazed out the window, and Cai Ning stayed silent.
After a while, she burst into a smile for seemingly no reason at all and said, “Do you know what the best part about you is?”
He was taken aback but just shook his head. “I honestly have no idea. What do you all see in me?”
Cai Ning let out a little huff and said, “I can’t speak for others but, to me, the best part about you isn’t wealth or your power, nor was it your family background. I can’t deny the fact that all these things were the ones which led to me knowing you but, to me, those are all just details anyone can find from your business card.”
She took a deep breath and continued, “The way I see it, the best part about you is that you don’t even realise the best part about yourself and that’s why I made the decision to follow you.”
Yang Chen stared dumbly at the woman, still in a daze from how her simple words had such a huge effect on him.
He smiled gently and in one move, slung his arm around her petite waist. He leaned in to close the distance between them and said, “Ning’er, give me a kiss.”
Cai Ning was shocked by the sudden display of affection and her face flushed but she stubbornly kept her head down.
“I guess I’ll do it instead,” he said without any regards to her deepening shyness. He kissed her multiple times on her cheeks and her ear then backed away while laughing loudly.
She bit her bottom lip, and glared at him with a mixture of affection and annoyance. “I should have just said that there was nothing good about you.”
He was in a great mood and just about to tease her more when they heard a loud shout from downstairs. “Thief! Don’t run! Everyone, stop him!”
At the sound of the familiar voice, Yang Chen shared a look with Cai Ning before they turned their attention to a street to their west. It turned out that it really was Cai Yan who shouted.
The market was naturally crowded with people and various stalls selling plants or birds were set up with no rhyme or reason, making it hard for anyone to navigate the market freely.
Yang Chen’s field of vision was much larger than a normal person and when he looked closely, there really was a boy who seemed to be in his early teens and was running at a breakneck speed. That boy was probably the one that Cai Yan yelled at.
Some passersby were stunned when they felt Cai Yan’s powers rising off of her. At the sight of the teen fleeing, most chose to hang back and watch from the sidelines with the assumption that someone else was going to stop the teen.
Yang Chen let out a long suffering sigh, and said to Cai Ning, “I guess it’s time to help a certain heart set on bringing justice to this world.” He exchanged a knowing look with her, and they both made their way downstairs.
Since it had already come to this, they very well couldn’t let Cai Yan chase after the thief blindly and cause a ruckus.
However, releasing his powers in an area with so many civilians was out of the question. This left them with no choice but to quickly slink their way through the crowd and they caught up with Cai Yan in no time.
Cai Yan was obviously given special training as well and was in top physical condition. The thief was just a normal human, and simply couldn’t keep up in terms of stamina. After running past two different streets, right in front of a stall selling bonsai, he tripped and fell. Very Attentive
“You little rascal! I’ve got you now! Don’t you dare run from me!” Cai Yan was trying to catch her breath as her face went bright red while wrestling with the skinny teenager.
The teenager was huffing and puffing, as he whimpered, “What are you talking about? I didn’t steal anything!”
“Cut it with the excuse!” Cai Yan eagerly snatched the snakeskin purse from the hands of the teen. “How dumb are you to think that I would believe this is yours?”
Casual bystanders flocked to the scene, as they gossiped about the incident, mostly words of criticism for the teen.
Cai Ning held on her sister’s hand as she persuaded, “Yanyan, he’s just a kid. There’s no need to be this harsh on him.”
“Elder Sister, you don’t understand. Kids these days need to be taught a lesson!” Cai Yan proudly pointed at the teen as she taunted, “Look, kid, tell me your name, house address, and your age. You better be honest to me, or else I will send you straight to the police station!”
The teen wailed louder at the mention of the police station, as he repeatedly pleaded her not to.
Yang Chen was a little frustrated by the incident as he stood up for the kid. “Yanyan, just look at that poor kid. We are not in Zhonghai right now. Let’s leave this matter to the people in charge.”
Cai Yan gave a gentle hush as she replied, “Where is the securit-“
A shadow flashed and Ye Chenchen appeared on the rooftop. The next instant, with another flash, he had already vanished into the morning light.
In front of the Pagoda Mountain, Ning Tianya stood with his hands behind his back. Behind him was Ye Zui, who was trembling all over, and the Ye Clan experts who had been thrown into a heap. Ning Tianya’s slap had caused all the demonic aura within Ye Zui to be sealed; right now, he was truly helpless.
In the distance, a rustling sound, like that of a typhoon going through the mountains, could be heard. It was hard to believe that this sound was actually produced by someone flying.
A figure, as though a shooting star, suddenly landed. With a light sway, that terrifying inertia resulting from traveling at high speed was immediately dispelled. As he stood in one spot and took in the situation, his expression couldn’t help but change.
“Elder Ning, so it’s the esteemed elder who’s here.” How could Ye Chenchen possibly not recognize Ning Tianya, the top expert in the world? The moment he saw that it was actually him, his heart immediately trembled.
They had provoked Wu Juecheng the other time; could they have provoked Ning Tianya this time?
The moment he thought of that, Ye Chenchen felt a toothache coming on at once.
Judging from the situation at hand, there was a real possibility that that was the case?
“Cough… I say, Little Ye, what’s the matter with you?” Ning Tianya struck first in order to gain the initiative and made a complaint as the guilty party to gain the right of reason first. “How could you do this? I was just cultivating for a while in the Pagoda Mountain… and you actually incited your descendants to come here and make trouble! What kind of intentions are you harboring?”
Ye Chenchen’s expression darkened right away.
This bunch of bastards was actually using my name as a front when making trouble?
“What’s the matter with you?!” Ning Tianya demanded furiously, “Do you think I’m easy to bully?!”
Ye Chenchen gave a wry smile in response.
If you’re easy to bully, then there truly won’t be anyone who isn’t easy to bully in this world…
Without any other alternative, he replied, “Elder Ning, please calm down. Let me investigate this matter! There must be a misunderstanding here.”
Ning Tianya snorted angrily. “What misunderstanding is there? The truth of the matter is that I was cultivating in the mountains, yet your descendants were cursing and shouting loudly at the foot of the mountain… This is utterly unbelievable. Ye Chenchen, since when has the Ye Clan become this ill-bred?”
Ye Chenchen’s countenance was full of shame.
Both from anger and embarrassment.
Do I have it easy? I’m already more than ten thousand years old and can be considered a man of noble character and well-respected. Now, within the span of a month, I’ve been lectured twice by others as though they were lecturing their own son.
The first time was still understandable; that was because Wu Juecheng had been provoked into storming the Ye Clan. The unaware were not to be blamed. However, after that incident, he had issued a strict order to refrain from stirring any more trouble!
And now, not even half a month had passed and he was yanked over by Ning Tianya and severely lectured…
Who did I provoke, seriously?
Ye Chenchen was so furious that he was practically driven mad by these descendants of his. He shook all over, his limbs cold and icy! – Blood of Darkness
The shriveled elder walked forward, crossing over the dragon vein, directly entering the land of darkness. Immortal energy surged around his body, carrying multicolored radiance, flowing with hazy brilliance.
Originally, the layer of golden skin around his wizened body already looked unordinary. Now, it seemed even more extraordinary.
Only, it was a bit strange. There was clearly immortal energy swirling about, yet he looked like a golden skeleton.
“The black calamity has arrived once more. This old one is going to eradicate evil, came specifically to get rid of you!” The elder said.
His speed was too fast. He rushed into the darkness, entire body erupting with radiance, actually dispelling the black mist, making that inauspicious region become dazzling.
He reached out with a dried-up great hand, releasing golden radiance, crushing the void until it exploded, weng weng noises sounding. He directly grabbed that Vajra Gate old sect master.
Vajra Gate’s old sect master’s hair was disheveled, the corners of his mouth carrying black blood. His eyes were like two small silver suns, extremely brilliant.
He could clearly sense danger. He didn’t face this enemy, instead directly turning around and fleeing. However, the cold smile that appeared on his face made everyone’s hearts tremble.
His gaze was extremely sinister, as if he was remembering this Immortal Domain elder. He turned around, actually escaping towards the depths of the darkness.
“Where do you think you are going?!” Once one’s cultivation reached this elder’s level, a raise of his hand could seize the sun and moon, grabbing the sun and moon would be extremely easy. If he wanted to kill, it was naturally extremely easy.
However, in the darkness, a giant claw reached over, covering the sky, terrifying beyond compare!
As it reached out, the great earth split open, the void breaking apart inch by inch. A black hole even appeared, the scene terrifying.
This was a creature from behind the dark storm. This was the true source of chaos! Now, a powerful being personally took action!
Two individuals faced off. The void exploded, darkness matter surging powerfully. At the same time, immortal energy also crazily dispersed, interweaving here, attacking everything, forming great dao ripples.
This was a collision of natural laws, a confrontation of order. The voices and scenes all seemed to have originated from millions and millions of years ago, vaguely carrying the power of time.
A battle at this level was unimaginable. No one expected for a clash at this level to happen just a few days into the darkness calamity, for such a great battle to happen.
Powerful winds stirred about, splitting the skies. Many great mountains on the earth were weak like paper, immediately turning into ashes, directly disappearing.
This was caused by just some slight fluctuations of the great dao force that leaked out from these two individuals’ battles, yet it created such a terrifying scene.
They controlled everything extremely well, almost no explosive force seeped out, everything restrained within the heart of the battlefield, within the two great hands.
This scene was extremely astonishing. The giant beast claw was dark black in color, like that of a lizard’s, yet also like that of a demonic bird. It was strange and sinister, carrying scales flickering with dark light.
It was completely unknown just what kind of creature it belonged to. Right now, it surged with power, filling heaven and earth, even larger than stars!
Meanwhile, the elder’s palm released golden light, skin wrapped around bones. He also became giant, covering the heavens, holding back that beast claw. Great dao ripples surged between the two, continuously clashing.
This was the first great confrontation between a true immortal and a creature of darkness!
“Immortal Domain truly hasn’t made any progress, still attaching such high regard to rules. Defeat is merely a matter of time.”
Right at this time, a hoarse sound rang out, carrying an icy coldness, as well as a terrifying cruelty. It was as if an old tortoise was crying out, the sound ear-splitting and unpleasant.
This was released by a darkness creature. Great claws moved, terrifying spiralling dark light appeared, tearing at the arm of this Immortal Domain elder like a meat grinder.
The arm of Immortal Domain’s elder exploded, blood flying everywhere, carrying immortal light. Every single drop could destroy groups of stars, containing the power of true immortals!
However, even though he was this powerful, he was still injured. An arm was immediately crippled, corroded by a wave of mysterious laws. Dark light surged, about to invade into his body.
“I won way too easily.” In the darkness, that voice said cruely and ruthlessly.
On the other side of the dragon vein, everyone’s hearts sunk, feeling incredibly shocked. This elder’s status was extremely high, he cultivated the Golden Skin Silver Bone great method, flesh incomparably sturdy, yet he immediately had his arm crippled. Just how terrifying was the enemy?
The troops from the different great long life families in the Nine Heavens Ten Earths all became silent. Even Immortal Domain’s expert couldn’t stop the other side, what were they supposed to do?
At this point, there wasn’t anywhere for them to retreat to. There was only Immortal Domain, if they couldn’t enter, then even if they stayed behind, they would die.
“Cough, when one gets old, one’s energy starts declining. I was just a bit negligent and careless.” The golden skin shone. Immortal Domain’s elder coughed, blood trickling down from the corners of his lips.
He was backing up, his body staggering about. However, that broken arm was recombining, regrowing, bloody mist was surging, powerful vitality returning.
Moreover, in the sky, there were several stars that quickly brightened. There were some who were stunned, because when they opened their heavenly eyes, they saw that the stars were burning, surging with spiritual essence.
Immediately afterwards, these stars grew dim, burning into ashes. However, there were several waves of powerful star essence that surged over from outer space, turning into beams of light, entering the elder’s body.
He directly burned great stars, absorbing their essence energy, restoring his broken arm. These methods were a bit astonishing.
During this process, the battle didn’t stop, because the elder was releasing golden light from his body. Layers of ripples spread, stopping that beast claw.
In reality, when the beast claw brandished about, heaven and earth were split apart. It continuously fell, wishing to seize this chance to kill the elder.
Suddenly, a great roar sounded from the distance. Vajra Gate’s old sect master’s figure became sluggish. He lowered his head, his silver pupils widening, looking at his chest. There was a streak of silver light that stabbed through, crushing his heart.
Then, his body exploded, black blood splashing in all directions, remains falling in all directions.
That streak of immortal radiance seemed to be condensed from specks of blood, belonging to the wisps of blood that came out of the elder when his arm previously exploded. When his body recombined, not all of the bloody mist swirled back, some of it seeped underground, quickly moving, chasing after Vajra Gate’s old sect master.
“The seed of darkness was killed!”
Many people on this side of the dragon vein were shocked. Then, they cheered. This was a victory for the elder, he left just to kill this vicious being, prevent him from becoming a second Shutuo.
It was because his evolution speed was too terrifying, as if there was no upper limit!
Who would have thought that things would go so smoothly, that the seed of darkness would already be eliminated?!
“Hah!” The golden skin shone, silver bones resplendent. The elder released a cold laugh, his battle strength surging. He faced off against that black beast claw.
Suddenly, everyone was shocked, because the black blood of the killed Vajra Gate old sect master was also moving, not erased. In the end, it gathered together, forming a human figure.
“What?” Many people were shocked.
One had to understand that this creature was killed by a strand of immortal blood, making him explode, how could it revive again?
He hadn’t reached the Immortal Dao Domain, still a mortal body, so a drop of immortal blood should have been enough to hack down the sun, moon, and stars, obliterate everything. He actually managed to survive?
This didn’t match normal reasoning!
“It seems I must disappoint you. The seeds of darkness are imperishable, he will definitely grow up once more.” In the depths of the darkness, a low voice sounded. That beast claw’s attacks became even more ferocious.
At the same time, Vajra Gate’s old sect master was completely reviving, bones reconstructing, truly growing. Moreover, a wave of powerful fluctuations was spreading.
He was roaring, going crazy. His body quickly became bigger, becoming a giant that towered between heaven and earth.
“Heavens, this is a supreme being transformation, magical body change. Is he going to advance again?” Everyone was stunned. This speed of evolution was hard for one to accept.
“A bit too fast, withdraw!” Someone spoke from the darkness. Moreover, a great claw reached out, crushing towards him, having him shrink, restrain the surging essence energy.
One could see that within that normal height body, the black blood became more and more exuberant, accumulating and concentrating. When it broke through in the future, it would be even more powerful.
In the darkness, a fine streak of light quickly fled. This was a drop of immortal blood, around it a bit of darkness blood.
“You wish to bring away the darkness blood of a chosen?” Cold laughter sounded from within the darkness.
The beast claw that faced the elder immediately changed, rapidly shrinking. Moreover, the original body appeared. This was a humanoid creature, at the very least, the outline looked close.
He was most likely intentionally turning into human form, even that beast claw turned into a fist. Darkness light surged, smashing towards Immortal Domain’s elder, as well as attacking that smear of flowing light.
Immortal Domain’s elder released a light shout. His body was sparkling, erupting with immeasurable immortal force, fighting intensely against him.
With a peng noise, the streak of flowing light still exploded in midair. The immortal blood scattering was one thing, but that bit of darkness blood was also rushing in all directions.
Right at this time, on the dragon vein, another elder appeared, white beard white hair, his presence aloof and majestic. He really was like an old daoist immortal. In his hands was a jade cauldron, collecting the darkness blood that exploded in the sky.
“Get that son of a bitch!”
The voice had come out of the inside the building, and the thugs obeyed it by picking up their guns and firing at the spot where Kieran was standing.
Before they could fire though, Kieran had already rolled out of the way.
He already had a plan in his mind. Without a second thought, he pulled out the [U-II] grenade, released the pin and threw it inside the hole.
Then he quickly stood up and dashed away from the grenade. He ran along the roof and leapt up towards another rooftop about eight meters away.
Other than Shuberg’s men, Kieran had also seen an open box of homemade explosives in the roof hole.
The grenade would definitely detonate the explosives, so if Kieran remained in the area, he would be caught in the explosion.
Just as Kieran landed on the nearby rooftop and rolled away, the building behind him exploded with a bang. Kieran was unable to withstand the explosive force. In an instant, it had sent him rolling even further away.
While he rolled, Kieran could clearly see Shuberg and his men on the second floor of the burning building. They were lit up like human torches.
The bright explosives illuminated half the night sky.
The brightness also shed light on Leschuder and his men, and their stunned expressions.
They could not believe what they were seeing.
Kieran had done this?
Kieran had done it!
One of the police officers screamed out loud, soon followed by the applause of the remaining men.
Even Leschuder could not mask the happiness on his face.
The police officers thought of the person who had pulled off this miracle. While Kieran was still struggling to get to his feet, the others started cheering and heading towards the roof he had landed on. Chapter 50: Skill Book
Translator: Dess Editor: – –
Kieran was crawling, struggling to get to his feet. He felt like his body had been broken into pieces. Although he had tried his hardest to put a long distance between him and the explosion, he had still been caught in the shockwave and sent flying.
He felt like all his joints had been dislocated, and his HP had dropped by about 50 points.
If it was not for his E- Rank [Constitution] and his 200 HP, that shockwave alone may have gotten him into [Moderately Wounded] status.
It had all been worth it, though. Kieran took a deep breath and checked his mission bar.
[Sub Mission: Crazy Shuberg (Completed)]
Kieran had never even seen the guy. The underground gangster boss had died in the explosion.
A series of cheers came from afar.
Kieran managed to get up on wobbly feet. He waved at Leschuder, who was coming for him, signaling that he was okay.
“You crazy son of a bitch!” the Deputy said honestly before he sent two of his men to help Kieran down from the roof.
The men did not complain. Their eyes were filled with respect as they looked at Kieran.
His actions had impressed them immensely.
His shooting skill, his agility, the fact that he had saved both their Deputy and comrade, and last but not least, that suicidal attack that had blown the thugs straight to hell…
Every single one of those actions would have been enough to earn their respect, and Kieran had done all those things by himself.
Both the police officers and Deputy Leschuder had changed their opinion about Kieran.
Still, the Deputy’s stubbornness would not allow him to express his gratitude.
“Prepare to extinguish the fire! See if any of those bastards are still alive!” Leschuder ordered all his men that were still able to move.
They all thought that no one could have possibly survived the blast, but the fire still had to be extinguished.
Although it was a detached two-floor building, no one could ensure that the wind would not carry the sparks elsewhere.
Buckets of water were poured over the flames, and steam started to rise in the process.
Then from afar, a series of hastened footsteps were heard.
Despite the darkness, the uniform and the huge body of the leading man could still be seen clearly. Everyone could tell that it was Chief John with his reinforcements.
Everyone, including Kiera, saluted him as he approached.
Kieran got distracted by something else, though. As the fire was being putted out, he saw a white booklet glow faintly among the flames.
No further confirmation was needed. Kieran already knew what it was.
After all, inside the whole underground game, there was only one kind of book that could emit that particular faint glow. It was a Skill Book!
Through his earlier conversation with Lawless, Kieran had found out that Skill Books had their own ranks too.
They were divided into four known categories; White, Green, Orange, and Gold.
White color represented the Common Rank, where most of Kieran’s skills belonged, Green represented the Magic Rank, which was used for magical skills, Orange was Rare, and Gold was Legendary. As Lawless had explained, these colors were supposed to represent the skills in those books.
As for skills above all these categories?
Lawless did not know much about that either.
Until now, the underground game’s highest-ranking Skill Book had been a Gold Legendary one.
That particular Skill Book had caused a global-scale war to break out in the game.
Not a small conflict like the one between the Steam City and the Iron Chariots. That was a mere squabble in comparison.
The war that the Skill Book had caused had had an infinite death toll.
Kieran could clearly remember Lawless mentioning that incident. Sensing the fear behind his words, Kieran had not wanted to press the matter any further.
Other than the aforementioned Skill Book categories, there was one more special Skill Book, the faint Purple Skill Book.
Kieran’s Tracking was that kind of Special Skill.
A Special Skill could be very powerful or have very little use. It was not possible to determine using common sense.
Kieran had some experience on that matter.
His Master Level [Tracking] skill was not an offensive skill, but he had still incorporated it into his life.
He was not going to underestimate the value of the Skill Book just because it was White.
After all, his current strength had been built on different White Rank Skills that he had acquired along the way.
Furthermore, in the secret bazaar among the veterans, White Skill Books were priced somewhere between 1,000 to 2,000 points.
As for higher rank ones?
Unless Kieran was crazy or somehow forced to sell them, he would definitely keep them for himself.
As a result, the moment Kieran laid eyes on the Skill Book, he forgot all about his pain and made a ridiculous suggestion, “John, have your men put out the fire faster, there might be some clues left behind!”
“Okay!” John just nodded at Kieran’s advice.
Their current friendship level allowed him to accept such suggestions, no matter how ridiculous they sounded.
Plus, John was having a lot of doubts about the case. How had Shuberg gotten his hands on that amount of firearms and explosives?
Low-level thugs did not normally possess tons of firearms.
The fire was extinguished swiftly.
The officers had done their job. After confirming that it was safe, the civilians came out to help too.
Some busybodies were even asking around about what had happened.
Kieran and John did not have time for them, though. They entered the extinguished building together.
Leschuder automatically ordered the rest of the officers to barricade the place and quietly watch as his superior and Kieran investigated.
Kieran entered the crime scene and quickly walked over to the Skill Book.
[Discovered Skill Book: Explosive Weapons (Explosives)]
[Do you wish to learn?]
There was nothing to think about. Kieran quickly agreed.
[Learned Skill: Explosive Weapons (Explosives)]
[Name: Explosive Weapon (Explosives) (Basic)]
[Related Attributes: Strength, Agility]
[Skill Type: Offensive]
[Effects: You know how to make homemade bombs, TNT, grenades and other kinds of explosive weapons, Increases Damage by 10%]
[Remarks: You better be sure that what you throw is not gonna backfire on you!]
After reading the skill notifications, knowledge was transferred into his body once again. Kieran nodded in satisfaction.
Grenades were one of his favorite ways to deal with his enemies. Now that he also had the related skill, he would be like a tiger with wings.
The only downside was that if he wanted to upgrade the skill, he would need to finish the dungeon and get back to the lobby.
When he had fully acquired the skill, he turned around and looked at John. His friend was still searching carefully around the burnt area, frowning at his findings.
Kieran knew what John was looking for.
After all, he was the one who had suggested the idea.
He had been after the Skill Book, but he could not have just entered the scene with John for fun to get it. Such behavior would have clashed with his identity in the current dungeon.
Kieran sighed as he joined his friend in his effort to find clues.
The results were obvious.
After a whole hour of searching, all Kieran had found was ashes.
John hadn’t found anything either. The two of them looked at each other and gave up the search. They got up and headed out of the ruins.
“Hmph, knowing that Tang Xiu chap who’s always reluctant to admit anything, how can he confirm it?” Chen Wei said.
Kang Xia was secretly relieved. A smile crept up on her face. She then turned around, looking at the few city leaders on the table, and then said with a smile, “Gentlemen, I have a small private matter I have to deal with, so I’ll have to leave you to your drink fist. Jack, please entertain these leaders well. If they don’t enjoy their drinks to the full, I won’t forgive you!”
“Understood, Madam!” Jack laughed.
Kang Xia let out a faint smile and left the box along with Chen Wei. After they were in the corridor outside, she asked, “Is Tang Xiu also here?”
“Yup! He’s the one who brought me here!” Chen Wei nodded.
“Alright. I haven’t introduced myself. I’m Kang Xia, the General Manager of Magnificent Tang Corporation. By the way, might I trouble you to take me to him?” Kang Xia said with a smile.
“Huh?” Chen Wei curiously replied, “Why do I feel like I have heard your name somewhere?”
“Well, my name sounds familiar to a lot of people since it’s very common, to begin with.” Kang Xia said with a smile.
Chen Wei shook her head to suppress the doubt in her eyes before she replied, “Let’s go! I’ll take you to see him. Long Zhengyu said there’s a lot of beautiful women who like Tang Xiu and there’s one of them in the box here. I didn’t believe him at first. But after coming here, what he said is true. You’re the most beautiful woman I have ever seen.”
“Thanks for the compliment!” Kang Xia said with a faint smile.
After they arrived at the box where Tang Xiu was in, Kang Xia saw that Tang Xiu was chatting with Long Zhengyu as she greeted with a smile, “Boss, I’m disturbing your lunch, am I?”
“I just heard from Zhengyu that you’re drinking with several city leaders in the next box. How is it? You drank a lot?” Tang Xiu said with a smile.
“I still have some work in the afternoon so I only drank a little. Besides, it’s Jack who’s accompanying them.” Kang Xia said with a smile.
Nodding, Tang Xiu said, “Gimme a few years and I guarantee that you won’t have to entertain people in drinking parties to secure business deals for our company. It will be others who will beg to do that for us. In addition, if someone dares to disrespect you, you don’t need to care about their faces and you can directly slap them. Anyone who dares to backstab us, you tell me and I’ll fix them up.”
“Having a Boss like you is so rewarding,” Kang Xia said with a smile.
“Ehh? Wait, wait!”
Chen Wei walked to Kang Xia. Both of her hands stretched between Kang Xia and Tang Xiu as a look of disbelief was written all over her face, “Chief Kang, what did you just call him? Boss? You said you’re the General Manager of Magnificent Tang Corporation, then that means he’s the Big Boss of the company?”
“Yes! He’s the Big Boss of the Magnificent Tang Corporation!” Kang Xia nodded with a smile.
As shocked as she was, Chen Wei looked at the two. After a moment of hesitation, she asked, “Then… how many assets do the Magnificent Tang Corporation have?”
“It’s a business secret, so it’s inconvenient to tell you.” Kang Xia shook her head and said.
“You tell me!” Chen Wei’s sight shifted toward Tang Xiu and shouted.
Tang Xiu didn’t directly answer her question. But he looked at Kang Xia and asked, “That matter should be almost over, right? How many shares we got from it?”
“Well, it could be said so. After the finishing touch has been handled, we’ll obtain the result soon. About the amount, it should be around four billion yuan after dividing it between everyone.” Kang Xia answered.
With a satisfied look, Tang Xiu said, “Spending 200 million and earning 4 billion. It’s worth it.”
Chen Wei was flabbergasted as he watched the two. Her jaw dropped opened so wide that even a big goose egg could be stuffed into her mouth.
“You- you- Who are you exactly?” Chen Wei pointed at Tang Xiu.
“You are you, who are you?” Chen Wei didn’t wait for Tang Xiu as she cried out.
“Didn’t he just say it? He’s the Big Boss of the Magnificent Tang Corporation. I even dare say that with the well-renowned Kang Xia working for him, the total assets of the company will be rising from a hundredfold to a thousand-fold in the future. Maybe they’ll even surpass Bill Gate.” Long Zhengyu answered her with a sour tone.
Chen Wei’s eyes blinked. Her body suddenly shook as she almost fell to the floor. As shocked as she was, she looked at Kang Xia and involuntarily shouted, “Oh my God! I remember now! You’re Kang Xia, the business genius from the Wall Street who shook the entire world, aren’t you?”
Kang Xia said with a smile, “I dare not accept that my name has shaken the world, though. But I indeed came from Wall Street.”
Chen Wei staggered before she sat down on her original seat. She covered her chest with her hands and was speechless for a long period of time.
It was a great shock! She was shocked down to the core way too much today!
The shock this time was not because of Kang Xia at all, but it was because of Tang Xiu! Even in her dreams, she had never expected that the fellow who accompanied her this time, who ridiculed her with his sarcasm, turned out to have such a terrifying identity.
Who was Kang Xia? She was the most brilliant genius in the business world. An outstanding talent that numerous super consortiums wanted to hire. However, she actually returned back to her homeland and unexpectedly became Tang Xiu’s subordinate.
That’s right! Long Zhengyu had just said before that Kang Xia was interested in Tang Xiu? Was it true as well?
Chen Wei’s reaction was somewhat ridiculous for Tang Xiu. However, he didn’t say anything more due to the presence of Kang Xia and Long Zhengyu. Instead, he spoke to Kang Xia, “Anyways, if you don’t have to entertain them anymore and have nothing left to do, you should go back and rest earlier!”
“I still have to return since it’s not over yet. I left Jack as the host there to accompany them! It’s not convenient for me to leave them for too long, so I’ll go back there first!”
“Alright then!” Tang Xiu nodded.

Another filler chapter to be honest. LOL.
STD: sexually transmitted disease Chapter 228: Cousin Kexin
Seeing Long Yi leaving without turning back, Nangong Xiangyun firmly stomped her foot, then chasing after him, she pulled his sleeve and said: “Ximen Yu, stop.”
Long Yi turned around, then shaking off the hand of Nangong Xiangyun, he indifferently said: “I have nothing else to say with regarding this matter except I do not agree with your condition.”
“Why are you like this, don’t you know that I don’t like you?” Nangong Xiangyun angrily said.
“I also don’t like you.” Long Yi sneered.
Nangong Xiangyun blanked out for a moment, and with anger and shame welling up within her heart, after a long time, she said in resentment: “That is just right, isn’t it? We don’t like each other, but are forced to come together, so why aren’t you agreeing my conditions?”
“Why am I not agreeing to your conditions? You know that I am a man, right? Since I am a man, I have requirement in that aspect, heh heh……” Long Yi said and laughed strangely.
Nangong Xiangyun was startled, and her beautiful face suddenly became red, then biting her lower lip, she said: “Can’t you look for someone else for that?”
Long Yi smirked and said: “I will look for someone else too, and I also want my wife’s body.”
“You bastard.” Nangong Xiangyun kicked towards Long Yi.
Long Yi simply raised his big hand, easily grabbing the leg of Nangong Xiangyun, then suddenly tossing it back, he indifferently said: “Don’t come to bother me again, the discussion of this matter is over.” In fact, Long Yi knew that even if emperor had not opened his mouth, this marriage absolutely couldn’t be cancelled, as Ximen clan and Nangong clan truly had a common goal, so they must have a standard weight to bind them together, and an alliance by marriage was undoubtedly the best and simplest method, as the two clans would become relatives by marriage. After that, their benefit would also be tied together, thus truly reaching the state where both prospered or declined together.
Long Yi led Xiao Yi, Barbarian Bull and Li Qing, walking out of Ximen mansion, then headed towards the home of his grandfather Dongfang Qiming. As a matter of fact, the mansion of Dongfang clan was not that far away from the mansion of Ximen clan, but currently, Dongfang Qiming didn’t live in Dongfang mansion, rather lived in a holiday villa which was located on the outskirts of Soaring Dragon City. One should know that Soaring Dragon City was a very big city, if they walked at the pace of an ordinary person, then even if they walked from morning till night, they wouldn’t be able to cover the entire city.
When Long Yi and other arrived at the holiday villa of Dongfang Qimin, two hours had already passed. The existence of this villa was not in the memory of Long Yi, because this villa was built less than a year ago. This holiday villa was built on a mountain with a river, and its scenery was very exquisite. This villa didn’t show off the might and luxuriousness as Dongfang mansion, but it however gave people a kind of leisurely and casual feeling.
All the guards on the entrance recognized Long Yi, so seeing him coming, they immediately greeted and let him in. They basically didn’t need to inform their superior to let him in.
After walking into the villa, Long Yi genuinely sighed with feeling. There stood a beautiful mountain in front him, and everywhere within his sight was luxuriantly green with streamlet flowing with a gurgling sound, and at the bottom of this streamlet, there were multicolored pebbles, looked very peaceful. Several unique pavilions were dimly visible among the trees. Entering here, Long Yi felt as if this was a residence of the immortal.
Long Yi took a leisurely walk, and breathing the fresh air, he felt very satisfied, as if he had again returned to Elven Forest’s that leisurely and carefree immortal like life.
On the way, Long Yi came across quite a few maids that offered to lead the way, but Long Yi just declined with a smile. Without even using his spirit power, he knew where Dongfang Qiming live. In Violent Dragon Empire, if you continuously went eastward, then you will inevitably reach the courtyard where Dongfang Qiming resides.
Long Yi walked eastwards, and after a long time, he finally saw a courtyard composed of a row of exquisite log cabins. On the entrance door of this courtyard, ‘Qiming residence’ was written in large characters.
And just after Long Yi stepped into this courtyard, the scene before his eyes changed, becoming a vast expanse of whiteness, as dense fog floated in front of his eyes. Now he could see only within five steps around him. And what’s worse was, Barbarian Bull and others who were following after him seemed to have disappeared. Long Yi called them few times, but there was no movement around him.
After that, Long Yi flew in the sky, but no matter how high he flew, it was still the vast expanse of whiteness before his eyes.
“Wondrous gates, Hidden Jia (Qi Men Dun Jia) Technique, strange thing, some people of this different world understands this kind of profound formation technique.” Long Yi exclaimed in his heart. He also knew a little about this formation technique, but was really not proficient. The real formation technique he knew not only could obstruct the vision of people, they still could kill people stealthily.
This formation was simply the combination of Nine Palaces and Eight Trigrams, and just like all the formation technique, it also has a safe route. As long as one walks in a certain regular pattern, one could easily walk out of this formation.
Long Yi carefully probed this formation, and discovered that this formation could merely obstruct the vision, nothing else, but it seemed to be somewhat different from his previous life’s Wondrous gates, Hidden Jia Technique.
According to what he had learned from his superficial knowledge, Long Yi took three steps to the front, then five steps to the left, then like that he took nine, nine, four, ten and one steps. After that, the scene before his eyes suddenly brightened, unexpectedly, he had walked out of that formation.
After that, Long Yi turned around and look, only to see that there was a strange magic formation placed on the door. And there were also several piles of magic cores to supply energy to the magic formation. And at this time, Barbarian Bull, Li Qing and Xiao Yi were walking round and round in different location. As for why he was able to break through this magic formation using his past life’s the Nine Palaces and Eight Trigrams, Long Yi himself was also not clear. Perhaps all the creations under the heaven have mutual enhancement and inhibition between the five elements, and the formation technique, no matter whether it was Wondrous gates, Hidden Jia or magic formation, both of them had a similar principle. But, in comparison, Wondrous gates, Hidden Jia Technique however was more protean, using few stones, this technique could trap people, and even kill them.
And when Long Yi was thinking of removing those magic cores to free Barbarian Bull and others, suddenly a charming laughing sound came from inside the not distant woods. Hearing this voice, Long Yi felt as if he was struck by lightning, and blanked out in that location. That voice was so familiar that he could never forget it throughout his life.
“Si Bi, Si Bi.” Long Yi muttered, frantically heading towards the woods.
After passing through the woods, Long Yi discovered a hot spring with dense vapor in front of him, and there was a faintly visible figure inside the hot spring, currently washing her body. This figure appeared very similar to Si Bi. And just at that time, this figure dived into the hot spring and disappeared without a trace.
“Si Bi.” Long Yi shouted and jumped into the hot spring, then quickly swam towards the location where that figure was just a moment ago.
After that, he also dived into the water, and saw an indistinct figure at the bottom of this hot spring. Long Yi immediately become extremely excited, and without any demur, he rushed to the bottom of the hot spring and then tightly hugged that figure.
That figure seemed to be startled, and began to struggle violently.
Long Yi arrived at the surface of the water holding this figure, then heard alarmed and panicky shout: “Let me go, quickly let me go.”
Long Yi was dumbstruck in that instant, and his hands unconsciously loosened the hold on the charming body in his bosom. Why did her voice suddenly change? Just now, he had clearly heard the voice of Si Bi.
The girl in his bosom freed herself, then turning around, she slapped towards Long Yi. But her palm stopped in midair all of a sudden.
Long Yi came back to his senses, and saw a beautiful girl who had only her head revealed on the surface of the water in front of him. Her pitch-black silky hair floated on the air, and her face had become tender and pink due to the steam. Now she looked very alluring, but her big eyes were angrily looking at him.
“It’s you, why are you here?” Long Yi exclaimed. This girl was that priest girl he had mistaken for Si Bi at that time in Mea Principality! He had never expected that, today, he would mistaken her for Si Bi again.
That girl angrily glared at Long Yi and said: “I am also asking the same question to you, why on earth are you peeping me on bath? Moreover, you jumped in and hugged me tightly.”
Long Yi awkwardly smiled, but was confused in his heart. Just now he had definitely heard the voice of Si Bi. Could it be that because he was missing her too much, he had an illusion?
Just then, a maid suddenly came over and shouted: “Miss, Miss, someone broke in.”
Seeing the maid was approaching, in a haste and embarrassment, this girl suddenly stepped forward then hugging the head of Long Yi, she went underwater with only her head above the surface of the water.
Long Yi was thoroughly stunned, as his face was buried in a soft and satiny place. With his incomparably vast experience, he was sure that this place was maiden’s chest, moreover, this absolutely belongs to the best quality. It was downright elastic and was unusually fine and smooth.
“Got it, you can return first, I will deal with this matter.” This young girl stopped the maid from entering the hot spring and said.
This maid accepted the instruction, then turning around, she left.
At this moment, this young girl seemed to realize what she had done. She screamed and firmly pushed away Long Yi, then hugging her chest with her hands, she shed tears.
Long Yi surfaced, and seeing the current appearance of this young girl, he was just about to say something, but was interrupted by this young girl. She said in anger and shame: “Why are you still here? Still not leaving quickly.”
Long Yi laughed hollowly, then jumped out from the water, and somersaulting few times in the air, he lightly landed on the ground. Then using true qi, his thoroughly drenched clothing quickly dried.
“Turn away your head.” The voice of young girl resounded again.
Long Yi turned around and frowned. Now he was sure that this girl was his cousin Dongfang Kexin. Merely, why did he mistook her as Si Bi two times? First time, it was because she had the same kind of body shape and was wearing same kind of attire, but this time, it was because of that as if illusion voice, could there truly be such coincidence?
When Long Yi was thinking, he heard sounds of wearing cloth behind him.
“Okay, now you can turn around.” Dongfang Kexin said in her crisp voice.
Long Yi turned around, and watching this great beauty who had just got out of the bath, he truly felt her reaction was slightly strange. He had hugged and touched her body, but other than some embarrassment and anger, she didn’t have any big reaction.
“Kexin?” Long Yi raised his eyebrows and asked.
Dongfang Kexin rolled her eyes and grumbled in a flirty manner: “Cousin is a big bad egg, you thought I am another woman two times.”
“You recognized me from the very beginning? Then why did you tell me last time?” Long Yi stared at Dongfang Kexin and asked.
“I didn’t say, who told you to not recognize me.” Dongfang Kexin somewhat angrily said.
Long Yi helplessly smiled and said: “A girl changes eighteen times between childhood and womanhood, now you are not childhood’s silly little girl, so how can I recognize you?”
“Humph, you clearly forget about me, but I recognized you in a single glance.” Dongfang Kexin pouted.
Long Yi shrugged his shoulders, under his state of mind rising and falling sharply, he became somewhat depressed.
