Jian Yunxi bit his lower lip, almost breaking it.
Damn it, the chase and kill order issued by the Upper Realm’s Divine Clans to the Jian family was simply making them court their own deaths! Even with the entire Jian family added together, it was still impossible to truly kill Lin Zhan!
Liu Zhaoyue cast a sidelong glance at Jian Yunxi’s trembling fist and shrugged his shoulders sympathetically.
Although he seemed to be unreliable, Liu Zhaoyues mind was spinning fast.
Lin Zhan had something to do with the Upper Realm, that’s why the Jian family received the Scarlet Kill Order. Then the Liu family also received the order to kill Yan Tianhen at the same time. This probably also had something to do with the Upper Realm.
Yan Tianhen was only twelve years old at the time and was still a child, though he’s still one now.” Liu Zhaoyues fingers gently tapped on the futon, his eyes slightly drooping, A twelve-year-old child was specially issued the highest death warrant such as the Scarlet Kill Order by the Upper Realm. It must be because he has some terrible secret on his person that warrants his death. However, there’s nothing special about him.” Obviously, Liu Zhaoyue had already obtained all of the information on Yan Tianhen that his family could gather.
I’m afraid that his parents or family don’t have a very high status in the Upper Realm. Liu Zhaoyue sighed. Esteemed Lan Yue didn’t give him any guidance.
Obviously, the reclusive families in the Five Continents had not received any news from the Upper Realm for nearly a hundred years. Naturally, they didn’t know how the nine Divine Clans in the Upper Realm have changed dramatically in the past decade or two.
The only person in the Five Continents who knew of the causes and effects of this story was Esteemed Lan Yue. He also didn’t disclose the Upper Realm’s information to people who had nothing to do with it. So there was already a disconnect of information that the Lower Realm didn’t know about the Upper Realm.
People in the Lower Realm would never know how the Upper Realm was trying its best to find the half-devil child Yan Tianhen who seemed to have disappeared into of thin air, and would never know of Yan Tianhens special identity.
In this case, let the Liu and Jian families and any undercurrents in the Five Continents that suspect Yan Tianhens identity continue to make wild guesses. Anyway, even if they broke their heads trying to guess, they absolutely wouldn’t figure out why the seemingly ordinary Yan Tianhen had attracted the Upper Realm’s attention.
Liu Zhaoyue was also secretly observing changes in Esteemed Lan Yue’s expression. He wanted to see if he could gain something from the subtle changes on his face.
But, he failed in finding anything.
However, Liu Zhaoyue didnt feel too disappointed. He didnt really intend to understand Yan Tianhens identity right now. The Liu family had been abandoned by the Upper Realm for many years. Why should they continue working for them?
The more you knew, the greater the danger. Liu Zhaoyue knew this truth since he was a child.
Liu Zhaoyue led the topic back to the beginning.
He asked, Esteemed Lan Yue, how can we leave the Five Continents? Or, do we even still have a chance in leaving the Five Continents?
Jian Yunxi also said in a serious manner, To be honest, the reason why my father let me enter the outside society in person and come to Profound Sky Sect to visit your Venerable self was because my father’s cultivation has been at the peak of Profound Realm for a long time. After the previous incident with Lin Zhan, the spiritual Qi in my father’s body went berserk, which nearly forced him to break through. But in the end, it took him two full years to exert the entire familys efforts before he was able to suppress it. However, my father knew that his breakthrough was imminent, and Im afraid this cultivation suppression wont last more than three years. I come here this time, hoping that I can implore Esteemed Lan Yue to show a clear path for my family.
Liu Zhaoyue gave Jian Yunxi a look of surprise, Your family had a peak Profound Realm elder two years ago. Didnt you say that he had already flown to other Lower Realms? Why didn’t your father also go to other Lower Realms?
Jian Yunxi looked gloomy and pursed his lips. He hesitated for a moment before he whispered, No, there was no other Lower Realm. That elder of my family had failed to ascend and had fallen instead.
Liu Zhaoyue was completely stunned, and breathed in a rush of cold air. The elders of reclusive families were generally the most powerful figures in the family. If even they have fallen, it could only show that reclusive families couldnt find a breakthrough at all.
Why not go to another Lower Realm? Liu Zhaoyue agitatedly asked.
Jian Yunxi lightly replied, Because of the barrier around the Five Continents, there’s no entry or exit. Not only is a path to the Upper Realm blocked, but even the path to another Lower Realm also doesn’t exist. The reason why we can go to other Lower Realms is through a transmission array. But most of these transmission arrays are mostly one-use only and cant be found in the Lower Realm to accommodate a cultivator in the Earth Realm now.
Liu Zhaoyue was speechless. He couldn’t help but turn solemn which seemed weird on a face that was always smiling.
In the past fifty years, no one in the Liu family had ever ascended. They were deeply hidden in the mountains, truly implementing the true meaning of the word reclusive. They had never tried to go to other Lower Realms or to Realms where the spiritual Qi was stronger than that of the Five Continents and that can temporarily accommodate an Earth Realm cultivator.
Hence, the Liu family didn’t even know that the Five Continents’ situation was so serious!
Liu Zhaoyue bit his teeth and decided he needed to leave. He had to immediately pass the news to the clan.
Shit, you should have told us this news earlier! Liu Zhaoyue seemed to be a bit frazzled.
Jian Yunxi glanced at him coldly, Your Liu family also have secrets to hide from us.
Liu Zhaoyue couldn’t say anything to do that.
After a while, he turned to Esteemed Lan Yue, Esteemed Lan Yue, please also show me a clear path for my family. My eldest brother his cultivation is almost beyond control.
You want to go out, and my answer is that it is possible.
The two boys looked excited.
But they were immediately beaten down by Esteemed Lan Yue’s next words.
“It will take an opportunity. He continued, You need to wait for the person who can break this array to show up and find a way to open the seal.
Who’s this person? Jian Yunxi queried.
When the time comes, youll know, he answered.
Liu Zhaoyue frowned, What about the method?
He will already know.”
Jian Yunxi endured, How long will we have to wait?
Esteemed Lan Yue mysteriously replied, Heavens secrets cannot be revealed.
Having said so much, yet he unexpectedly just spoke some nonsense!
Despite how long Jian Yunxi and Liu Zhaoyue talked, Esteemed Lan Yue still gave them some seemingly useful but temporarily useless news.
In the end, the two felt discouraged.
Liu Zhaoyue looked wearily at Esteemed Lan Yue, Esteemed Lan Yue, it seems that even if I want to enter your peak, I have no chance.
If you had come earlier, I would have accepted you as a disciple. However, now that I have released my message and accepted Lin Xuanzhi as my closed-door disciple, it is naturally impossible to accept any other disciples.
Liu Zhaoyue sincerely said, However, I’m impressed by your charm. Can I still learn from you even if I’m not a disciple?
Esteemed Lan Yue looked at him lightly, Why are you doing this? With your capacity and current cultivation, Profound Sky Sect has no one to teach you except the Sect Master and some elders. You’re wasting your time and talent here.
Liu Zhaoyue was more sincere and modest, Esteemed Lan Yue is really flattering me. My eldest brother often teaches me to become acquainted with more wise men like you, so that I can naturally improve my cultivation. In my opinion, Esteemed Lan Yue is highly respected and talented. Even if it’s just being around the Venerable One and being influenced by your style, it is better than my three or five years of self-cultivation.
It wasn’t ridiculous hearing this kind of speech. Todays younger generations really were more and more eloquent so this sounded more pleasing to the ear than some of his core disciples who entered his peak.
So, Esteemed Lan Yue gave a bit of leeway, If you are determined to stay in Sinking Sword Peak, it’s not impossible.
Liu Zhaoyue brightened up.
He didnt come here to really learn under a Master, but for Esteemed Lan Yue. As long as he could get closer and observe him, he would get more information sooner or later and break through the barrier of the Five Continents.
Moreover, even if he went home now, he couldn’t help much, and even if he wandered around, it would be aimless and ineffective
Liu Zhaoyue replied, Please tell me, Esteemed Lan Yue.
Esteemed Lan Yue explained, My young disciple who has just entered my door should be able to give you directions. Although he is young, his talent in sword cultivation is extraordinary. You may as well follow him for a period of time and let him give you some advice.
Lin Xuanzhi? Liu Zhaoyue was taken aback.
Lin Xuanzhi, Esteemed Lan Yue nodded.
Liu Zhaoyue was stunned for one moment, before finally gritting his teeth and smiling, Okay!
Jian Yunxi lightly glanced at Liu Zhaoyue, Venerable One, I have long heard of the name of Immortal Huarong. I also hope to have the opportunity to follow him and appreciate his demeanor.
Liu Zhaoyue thought that Jian Yunxi was really shameless.
However, Esteemed Lan Yue didn’t care. He nodded, Go straight to Xuanzhi to report.
If today’s children didn’t suffer a few blows, they wouldn’t know the difference between heaven and earth.
Besides, these two boys took the initiative to send themselves into Lin Xuanzhis hands.
Jian Yunxi and Liu Zhaoyue left the pavilion to move to Cleansing Inkstone Pavilion.
Liu Zhaoyue looked at Jian Yunxi contemptuously and sneered, Shame on you. Your family had clearly hunted down his father to kill him, and you dare come to him.
Jian Yunxi’s face didn’t change. He looked at Liu Zhaoyue with the same contempt, You don’t have much shame either. Yan Tianhen is his younger brother.
They’re not related by blood.” Liu Zhaoyue countered, “And my brother didn’t do anything.
Jian Yunxi spoke up, It doesnt matter if they’re not related by blood, all that matters is that they treat each other as such. Besides, my father hadn’t done anything either.
Liu Zhaoyue stared at him, Copycat. You’re not afraid that after Lin Xuanzhi knows what your Jian family has done, he’ll find you for revenge?
Jian Yunxi gave him a glance, How could Lin Xuanzhi know such a thing?
Liu Zhaoyue huffed out a, Ha! Seeing the boy with a sword before him, his eyes lit up, This honorable one is going to kiss a little beauty now. If you’re not going to follow, you don’t have to follow behind my ass.
Jian Yunxi’s face became long-drawn, and his calm eyes looked at Liu Zhaoyue with disdain. He stopped following Liu Zhaoyue, who was talking towards the boy, I’m not going with you. I can’t afford to lose this face.
With that said, Jian Yunxi rode his sword toward the inner door disciples residence located on another mountain.
Cleansing Inkstone Pavilion.
After the two visitors left, Esteemed Lan Yue was still sitting cross-legged on the futon in the pavilion, his posture a picture of meditation.
Lying in a hidden corner of the pavilion, Wan Yitong complained bitterly. After holding on for a while, he took the initiative to expose himself and jumped in front of Esteemed Lan Yue.
Esteemed Lan Yue did not even lift an eyelid as he asked, Did you hear me clearly enough?
Wan Yitong was a little embarrassed, but to be honest, this wasn’t the first time this kind of thing happened. He touched his nose and smiled cheekily, I heard it loud and clear, and understood the general gist of things. Thank you, Master, for being generous and not minding me.
