After the battle in the Prison Emperor’s Divine Palace, the Old Dragon Turtle happily took the Prison Emperor’s Divine Staff and rushed out to use a secret technique to recover his power.
With regards to Yue Yang’s adamant refusal to give the Prison Emperor Divine Seal to him, he couldn’t do anything to it at all.
Although Yue Yang would not be able to use the Prison Emperor Divine Seal right now, to Yue Yang, who definitely refused to be shortchanged, he would still want it even if he could only use it to smash walnuts.
He finally cleared the Prison Emperor Divine Palace quest after so much hard work. He had even chased the three big bosses away.
If he didn’t receive some Artifacts as compensation, Yue Yang would feel gravely wronged.
Hence, Prison Emperor Divine Staff belongs to the Old Dragon Turtle, the Prison Emperor Divine Seal belongs to Yue Yang. As for the Prison Emperor Divine Sword, it indisputably belongs to Princess Qian Qian. Furthermore, only she could use it.
Yue Yang said that he had contributed the most, so he insisted on getting double the amount of rewards. Hence, he also snatched the Prison Emperor’s Seven Star Pillars forcibly.
The Old Dragon Turtle obviously disagreed, but his opinion did not matter at all to Yue Yang.
Yue Yang, Xue Wu Xia and the others didn’t leave at once. Instead, they stayed at the Prison Emperor Divine Palace and rested inside the grimoire world for three days until they completely recovered from the fatigue of the great battle. Then, they spent a few more days to round up all the various rewards they got from the Prison Emperor Divine Palace. They tore up the Heaven Realm Centipedes’ venomous mouth and outer shells into pieces. They also took the Sand Drill Demon Worm’s Inner Dan, the Heaven Realm Warrior’s wings, weapons and armors. All of these materials were brought into the grimoire world, becoming materials for refining.
They cleared the whole place until there wasn’t anything left to be cleared. Only then did Yue Yang left the Prison Emperor Divine Palace under the Old Dragon Turtle’s secret teleportation method.
Amongst all of the Sealed Heaven Realm Warriors, only the monster guy An Ge was left.
That fellow had almost been swallowed whole by the Golden Crown Thorny Flower Queen.
Fortunately Yue Yang had promised to spare his life before.
An Ge carried over a dozen of his comrades’ remnants and memento, then walked step by step away from the Prison Emperor Divine Palace, leaving through the teleportation gate.
Before he left, he turned back for one last look.
Maybe there was a thread of unspeakable sadness in his heart. He didn’t look as happy as he thought he would be, instead, he felt a little depressed. Yue Yang didn’t really care about him at all, but listening to An Ge’s mumbling, he discovered that An Ge actually had around fifty comrades before. Now, only he was left. He could also only find ten over mementos from them, most of them had been lost. It couldn’t be helped that he would feel depressed.
Getting back his freedom was a good thing, but right now, he had become completely alone.
Six thousand years had passed and he had lost his original body and became a monster guy. Could he still return to the Heaven Realm?
With his current Innate Level 1 strength, would he still be able to safely return to the Heaven Realm.
Forget about his lack of confidence, even Yue Yang who had never gone to the Heaven Realm before looked down on him.
“I will stay at the Tong Tian Tower for a while, I want to adapt first…” Monster guy An Ge actually wanted to say that he wanted to follow Yue Yang to the Heaven Realm, but he saw that Yue Yang didn’t have that kind of thought at the mean time, so he didn’t mention it at all. He believed that when Yue Yang go to the Heaven Realm in the future, he would definitely need a guide. An Ge believed he would be the best choice as guide, so he was not in a hurry. He would first improve his strength at the lower levels of Tong Tian Tower first.
Parting ways with An Ge, Yue Yang, Xue Wu Xia and the others return to the Little Flower Garden
The Prison Emperor Divine Palace battle had not only brought a huge impact for Yue Yang, it had also greatly impacted Xue Wu Xia and the others.
The strong Heaven Realm Great Leaders, the Heaven Realm Warriors who didn’t die, the Heaven Realm Centipedes whose bodies were extremely durable… Inside everyone’s heart, after this battle, it was like they had acquired a deep enlightenment. When they thought about how they had been recognized in the human realm, they really felt like a frog in a well. Heaven Realm was indeed an abnormal place. If they wanted to advance to the Heaven Realm with the strength that they have right now, they would really be a joke.
Heaven Realm was definitely not a place that they could live easily once they reached the Innate Rank.
After this lesson, Yue Yang, Xue Wu Xia and the others finally had a goal. They decided not to think about how the gates to the Heaven Realm would only open once in a hundred years.
The most important thing was not to be in a hurry to go to the Heaven Realm.
Instead, they should be training to achieve greater heights, becoming stronger and having greater powers.
Just as Yue Yang and the others were about to start their harsh training, the Drunk Cat Big Sister and her little panda Niu Niu suddenly came to the Little Flower Garden, bringing a shocking news. The Supreme Elder Zhi Zun, Night Empress, Elder Nan Gong and the others had already returned from the Tenth Floor of Tong Tian Tower. With regards to the matter of the Soaring Dragon Continent invasion, the Supreme Elder was extremely enraged. However, with reasons unknown, the Innate Alliance had not moved to interrogate the Thousand Goblins Sect, Western Lion Pagoda and the Kingdom of Zi Jin of their sins. Of course, all the powerful experts such as the Great Emperor of Zi Wei, Shun Tian and the Thousand Goblins Sect Leader had already gone into hiding. No one dared to face the wrath of the Supreme Elder.
“Zhi Zun has returned?” Yue Yang and Xue Wu Xia looked at each other. Does Zhi Zun’s return meant that their advancement towards the Heaven Realm had failed?
“She seemed to be looking for you. Elder Nan Gong has also looked for the Vice Principal to discuss about something, but I’m not sure what it is about.” The Drunk Cat Big Sister was a little curious about Yue Yang’s powers. She might not be shocked anymore at his impressive growth, but how did Xue Wu Xia, Princess Qian Qian and Luo Hua City Mistress also levelled up to Innates? Could it be that that [Body Fusion] training was really that effective?
“Then let’s go back to the Yue Clan Castle to find out!” Yue Yang also thought that they had stayed at the Prison Emperor Divine Palace for too long, they had missed a lot of news about the outside world.
When Yue Yang returned back to the Yue Clan Castle, elder Yue Hai and the others were overjoyed.
Jun Wu You and Eastern Sky King quickly rushed over too.
They were fathers after all. It would be a lie if they said they didn’t care about their daughters.
Right now, seeing their daughters and their future son-in-law returning safely, they breathed a sigh of relief. Moreover, they had all improved so much. They really should let the young train on their own, otherwise how could their daughters improve so much? Three Innates had followed after Yue Yang, the abnormal brat. The fact that Xue Wu Xia, Princess Qian Qian and Luo Hua City Mistress all became Innates, if it happened last time, everybody would have said that it would only happen in dream land…
After a round of celebration, Night Empress suddenly appeared inside Yue Yang’s head.
Zhi Zun and her did not appear in person, but both took turns to question Yue Yang about the events that happened in the Prison Emperor Divine Palace. They especially asked a lot about the circumstances of the Heaven Realm Great Leaders.
“How is she?” Zhi Zun finally asked. She asked the question out of the blue without heads or tails, but Yue Yang understood that she was asking about her little sister, Phoenix Fairy Beauty.
“Not good but not bad either. She is still sleeping.” Actually, Yue Yang had not seen Phoenix Fairy Beauty yet, but according to the Qilin girl, after Phoenix Fairy Beauty spent most of her life force for Hundredfold Life Combustion to fight the Heaven Realm Great Leader, it would be best if she could continue to sleep like this to recuperate. Yue Yang was already very thankful that she was still alive. If the Qilin girl had came out a little later, Phoenix Fairy Beauty might really die because of her Life Combustion skill.
“It would be best if you don’t think about the Heaven Realm Great Leaders now. Thinking too much would bring no advantage at all, you might even get obsessed with it. What you need to focus right now is to build up your basics.” Zhi Zun immediately disappeared after saying this.
“Little fellow, don’t you want to ask about how our expedition to the Tenth Floor of Tong Tian Tower goes?” Night Empress really liked to tease Yue Yang when they were alone.
“What’s the result of your expedition?” Yue Yang guessed that the results was probably not good.
“The Heaven Realm is extremely vast. There are four gates in total to enter it. We went to the bottom of the fourth gate, which should be the West Gate from amongst the North, South, East and West Gate of Heaven Realm. Legends said that ‘The gate to Heaven Realm opens once in a century’, this was indeed correct. However, in front of the Heaven Realm Gate, there was an extremely long, sealed passageway. The seal guarding the passageway was extremely terrifying, one could go in but would never be able to go out. Hence, we gave up on the next step of the exploration. We thought that it is probably a trap, there must definitely be another way to enter the Heaven Realm. Otherwise, during the Ancient Times, how could so many human warriors enter the Heaven Realm easily?” Night Empress didn’t hold back on Yue Yang, she told him all about everything that had happened, but in a simplified term.
“You mean you guys have given up on entering, and are trying to find a new way?” Yue Yang frowned slightly. Could the seal have something to do with the Prison Emperor?
“Yeah, maybe we’ll talk about it again once you youngsters grew stronger a little more. Otherwise, in case I can’t return, you guys will be in danger.” Night Empress was telling the truth. Even before strong Rankers like Night Empress, Zhi Zun and Elder Nan Gong could confirm that they can return from the Heaven Realm, Great Emperor of Zi Wei, Shun Tian and the Thousand Goblins Sect Leader had already plotted an attack. If Zhi Zun and the others really couldn’t come back, it would be weird if they didn’t plot to attack Yue Yang with all they had.
“Then you guys would probably need to wait for some period of time …” Yue Yang felt that even if he had the [Body Fusion] skill, it would be too early for him, Xue Wu Xia and the others to go to the Heaven Realm.
“It’s okay, we will personally teach you guys ourselves.” Night Empress giggled like your typical next door girl.
Her laughter was like bells ringing in Yue Yang’s ears.
However, Yue Yang was unable to sense her body’s presence.
Compared to the Heaven Realm Great Leaders, Night Empress was not as powerful. Even against the weakened Heaven Realm Great Leaders, it might still be difficult for her to win. That was because the Night Empress was only a little stronger than Phoenix Fairy Beauty, and Phoenix Fairy Beauty could only injure the Heaven Realm Great Leader after she strengthened herself with Hundredfold Life Combustion. Without Life Combustion, it would be a miracle if the Night Empress was able to fight the Heaven Realm Great Leader on equal terms.
Of course, Zhi Zun, whose strength far surpassed the both of them, in Yue Yang’s opinion, would probably have a chance to defeat Jiu Xiao at his strongest .
If the Heaven Realm Great Leaders who had not recovered their full strength met Zhi Zun, they would really have a tragic fate.
Zhi Zun, in Yue Yang’s opinion, was the female version of Prison Emperor.
Maybe the current Zhi Zun could not compare to the Prison Emperor at his prime, but in the future, she would definitely be as successful as the Prison Emperor… Yue Yang firmly believed in this!
In the Soaring Dragon Continent, there were only two people that Yue Yang couldn’t figure out. One was Zhi Zun, and the second was the pitiful guy’s mother.
After speaking with the Night Empress, Yue Yang had thought that she was joking about the ‘personally teach you guys ourselves’ part.
Who knew, the next day, she really came and took Luo Hua City Mistress away… At the same time, Princess Qian Qian’s mysterious teacher had also come. Yue Yang didn’t recognize the old lady, but he discovered that she had a hidden strength of Innate Level 8. He couldn’t help but be shocked.
Turns out that there was such a powerful person amongst the protectors of the Royal Family.
Yi Nan’s aunt came and left with Yi Nan.
Grandma Wu Teng, who had healed her inner injury with the Martial Arts Pill, came to get Yue Bing.
Yue Yu’s master had also come and took Yue Yu away, chuckling all along saying that she couldn’t teach her student anymore in terms of martial art skills, but she still had various knowledge and life experiences that she could share with her disciple.
Yue Yu was naturally willing to spend some time with her master, because to her, she was a mother-like figure that she lacked.
Xue Wu Xia was the most favoured. Zhi Zun had come and decided to teach her personally.
To the Xue Clan, this was a dream-like opportunity. No one in the Xue Clan would ever thought that Xue Wu Xia would receive the Supreme Elder of Humans, Zhi Zun’s favour.
Forget about them, even Yue Yang never expected it.
In the end, everyone left for their separate training. Only the sickly beauty was left.
“Don’t worry, no matter what, I will accompany you. I will stay here.” The sickly beauty revealed a gentle smile as she curled her arm around Yue Yang’s, thinking that he would feel lonely. However, everyone’s departure was actually only a temporary goodbye. Everyone was trained by different seniors with different experiences and knowledges, they would definitely improve quickly and become stronger. After some time, when they meet again, they would definitely become a better partner for Yue Yang, different from their previous selves.
“You can’t continue staying at home like this. You should go out and explore the outside world.” Before Zhi Zun left, she gave an advice to Yue Yang.
“Yes, you should listen to her highness Zhi Zun… You haven’t been to the Sixth Floor of Tong Tian Tower right? Do you want to go? Maybe you can train over there. Even if you can’t level up, at least you can learn more knowledge.” The sickly beauty thought that Zhi Zun’s words made sense. If they didn’t go out and train indoors, their views would be narrowed. Furthermore, going to the Sixth Floor of Tong Tian Tower wouldn’t conflict against anything. Yue Yang could go out and train during the day and return to the grimoire world at night. She would accompany him so that he wouldn’t feel lonely. She wasn’t afraid that she would get bored inside the grimoire world because she could enjoy researching Runes all day. Whenever he missed her, he could return and spend time with her.
“Sixth Floor of Tong Tian Tower?” Yue Yang had only gone to the Fourth Floor at the most. Legends said that the Sixth Floor was a place that only the strong could exist, he really never gone there before.
Legends said that the Sixth Floor was where different races gathered, where the Innate Alliance was located.
The Sixth Floor of Tong Tian Tower, what was it like actually?
