Tong Tian Tower was on fire.
Almost every warrior were chattering about the Yue Clan’s Third Young Master’s achievements excitedly, never tiring of it.
This Yue Clan’s Third Young Master had always been under the radar, until he joined hands with An Xi and killed the Ocean Emperor Guan Lan. From then on, the youth immediately become everyone’s point of interest. The warriors of the Tong Tian Tower finally heard that there was an exceptional youth with superpowers who hailed from the Soaring Dragon Continent. Afterwards, when the Black Hell Army invaded the Soaring Dragon Continent, his name was once again brought up. There was also the matter of the Sea Clan putting a 10,000,000 gold bounty on him, making him the person with the highest bounty throughout Tong Tian Tower history. Soon afterwards, at the Sixth Level of Tong Tian Tower, the Yue Clan’s Third Young Master cut off the Black Hell King in a teleportation portal, making others break in cold sweat for him.
If it weren’t for Elder Nan Gong and Southern Goblin King’s help, a lot of people thought that this exceptional youth would kick the bucket and die young…
However, before ten days even passed, how would mankind ever conceive that this Yue Clan’s Third Young Master had actually become the leader who led the Tong Tian Tower’s warriors to a war against the Heaven Realm rankers and returned victoriously?
In Tong Tian Tower, there would always be skeptics…
A lot were saying that those were just empty stories, they would only believe it if they see it for themselves. Did the Yue Clan’s Third Young Master really returned victoriously from the Heaven Realm after defeating its rankers?
Waiting at the Da Xia Kingdom Palace Hall in the Soaring Dragon Continent, the Abyss Manatees who had become mankind’s slave should be able to tell those doubtful people the truth of that matter!
Legend said that 6000 years ago, this Heaven Realm monster ‘Abyss Manatee’ came to Tong Tian Tower due to the war between Heaven Realm’s Three Great Leaders and the Prison Emperor. One of them was not able to return to Heaven Realm, hence it stayed at the Tenth Floor of Tong Tian Tower’s Boundless Ocean, becoming the guardian that was worshipped by the Sea Clan. The descendant of this Abyss Manatee included Empress Jellyfish and the ruling clan of the deep seas. It was only 1000 years later that this Sea Clan Guardian died of old age, and because of this, the Ocean Emperor Guan Lan was able to rise to power.
The Abyss Manatee, who possessed the strength of Heaven Rank Level 2 and had become a guardian ancestor worshipped by the Sea Clan in the tenth level of Tong Tian Tower, had actually become the Yue Clan’s Third Young Master’s beast slave right now. It was even positioned at the plaza as a display for everyone to see. What was the intention here?
(Last: beast slave = pet, in my head)
To show off!
This was slap in the face against Empress Jellyfish’s order to capture him for 10,000,000 gold!
The Yue Clan’s Third Young Master’s actions was clearly telling the Sea Clan that it was not impossible to capture him, but the reward was too low…
Many warriors guessed that when Empress Jellyfish found out how their ancestor, an Abyss Manatee, had became the Yue Clan’s Third Young Master’s slave beast, she would probably be so angry that her nose would change its shape. However, Empress Jellyfish was definitely not the most miserable one. The most miserable one would be the Black Hell King.
This 6000 year old senior had became the greatest antagonist in the Tong Tian Tower. Forget about adults, even kids would call him a baddie.
Of course, those who believed the Black Hell King didn’t bother to voice out.
Inside the Tong Tian Tower, the most important thing is power, not reputation!
“These people really have nothing to do…” Yue Yang composedly stayed at the little garden in the Valleys of Hundred Flowers and Butterflies. The entrance to the Heaven Stairway was also here.
Yue Yang had stayed here before. Because the Black Hell Army had retreated, Yue Yang moved out of the mirage in Tian Luo Palace. He moved to the little garden. There wasn’t anyone to disturb him here, he could live a free and easy life. What Yue Yang wanted to do most currently was to help improving the girls’ power, train his beasts to become Divine Beasts, and research on runes, history and other matters. With regards to politics, there would be Jun Wu You, Elder Yue Hai and the Old Fox to manage it. He, as the junior, would not take part in that matter. Furthermore, currently, all the Four Great Clans were united like steel. Even if the Black Hell Army came to invade again, they wouldn’t be afraid of them.
With regards to the people’s fanatical adoration for him, Yue Yang completely didn’t care about them.
He was extremely clear-headed.
Taking away his powerful beasts and combat skills, with just the power of his own cultivation, forget about the Abyss Manatee, even killing an Ancient Slaughterer would be a tall order. Mostly, his beasts, combat skills and treasures were too powerful. Furthermore, he had the help of Zhi Zun and Night Empress whose powers were unimaginably strong. That was the only reason why he was able to have such battle prowess.
If Zhi Zun and Night Empress didn’t come, Yue Yang would definitely not go to Heaven Realm. He would also not kill that Heaven Rank Level 5 Hei Hu.
Elder Nan Gong announced the result to the world, but he had hidden the process of the battle.
If the world knew about Zhi Zun’s battle, they would find out that the strong one wasn’t actually Yue Yang, but Zhi Zun, who wasn’t talked about much…
“There hasn’t been an idol in the Tong Tian Tower for thousands of years, it’s quite sad. Furthermore, older sister has overshadowed all the other rankers and became the undefeatable number one, making all men in the world ashamed. Since now you have appeared, little sweetheart, of course they will be happy. Simply said, this is the time when men can raise their heads and stick out their chests, raise their eyebrows and exhaled in relief, this is the turnaround moment for men!” Phoenix Fairy Beauty’s words made the surrounding girls giggle secretly.
“Seems like Hai Ying Wu is not here?” Princess Qian Qian was sharp enough to realise that Hai Ying Wu had disappeared when they moved.
“Princess, older sister Hai Ying Wu has returned to the Sixth Level of Tong Tian Tower, she said that there were still many things to take care of in the Thunder Fortress. However, sister Hai Ying Wu said she will visit me if she has time.” The half-elf girl had stayed since Xue Wu Xia, Princess Qian Qian and Luo Hua City Mistress wanted her to do so.
Xue Wu Xia, Princess Qian Qian and Luo Hua City Mistress still wanted to train.
Although Night Empress had given them some time for a break, sooner or later she would train them again personally. After all, they were still Yue Yang’s comrades, who can lend him their powers. Their powers were inadequate, but it was enough to hold back their enemies. Right now, Yue Yang would research on Battle Puppets or translate Ancient Books all day. It won’t do if no one was there to take care of him.
The Sickly Beauty would normally take care of him, but Yue Yang had brought back hundreds of historical Ancient Books. She was even more serious in researching them compared to Yue Yang, almost to the point that she sacrificed sleep, rest and food. Yue Yang might need to take care of her instead, so forget about her. Yue Yu was also good in taking care of people, but she needed to be at Yue Clan Castle, Mirage and Little Garden in this period of time.
In the Yue Clan Castle, Yue Shan was still injured from the previous big battle. It was quite serious, hence he was still bedridden.
Yue Yu would need to visit her father often.
Right now, on Yue Yang’s side, if no one took care of them, the Sickly Beauty and Yue Yang would probably starve to death and no one would know.
Although the Hornless Dragon Jiang Ying was there, she and the Spider Empress didn’t know household chores. She would even need someone taking care of her. If she entered the kitchen for a day, there might not be any plates left unbroken…… Phoenix Fairy Beauty, Sky Law, was also born with a silver spoon since young, it would be unthinkable to depend on her.
The Drunk Cat Big Sis was not drinking wine anymore, but she had become a martial fool.
She would challenge Yue Yang to a fight whenever she saw Yue Yang.
On the contrary, it was the little panda girl that would offer some help to Yue Yang nowadays. Although most of the time, she would only look at him with a brilliant smile and her round cheeks resting on her palms.
Yi Nan and Yue Bing were training diligently. Even if they wanted to help with household chores, Xue Wu Xia and Princess Qian Qian didn’t allow them. Especially Yi Nan, she had mastered the ‘Soul Realm’ because of her longing for Yue Yang, and she was improving very quickly to master the next level of ‘Soul Realm’. Towards the half-elf girl, Xue Wu Xia and Princess Qian Qian had forgiven Yue Yang’s affair with her in the Thunder Fortress. After all, it was not his intention at the start. Towards the cute half-elf girl, no one would be able to guard against her charms.
It was actually the capable Hai Ying Wu that made Princess Qian Qian and Luo Hua City Mistress a little wary.
This girl was the daugher of the Ocean Emperor, she was not that simple.
“What did your boss say in his reply letter?” Yue Yang suddenly remembered that Sky Execution wrote Phoenix Fairy Beauty a reply letter.
“It’s nothing. Sky Execution has allied with the Dragon Emperor and decided to fight against the Black Hell King. He was initially an Innate Elder Level 1, but after the fight, he had levelled up to Innate Elder Level 2, a little higher than me. Dragon Emperor didn’t level up, but I heard that he was also Innate Elder Level 1. If he absorbed the Heaven Realm’s Tiger General’s orb that you gave him, he should be able to level up to Innate Elder Level 2… As for the Black Hell King, after escaping from the death arena, maybe he was punished by the Ancient Code, his powers has weakened greatly. He actually couldn’t win against Sky Execution and Dragon Emperor who had joined hands to fight him. The Great Demon King Baruth, who had came along to help the two warriors, almost didn’t have an opportunity to show off. Sky Execution had written a letter to ask me about the Card of Fate – that kind of Ancient Code-like power. He asked me if there was anything strange when you used it.” Phoenix Fairy Beauty replied.
“Black Hell King is definitely injured.” Princess Qian Qian said with a confident tone. “I think he had to pay a price for his betrayal. Maybe his body was shattered. Black Hell King might need to change into a new body.”
“I’m not that concerned with Black Hell King now, I’m more concerned with the Scarlet Emperor and Scarlet Concubine!” Yue Yang thought that rather than Black Hell King, the Scarlet Emperor posed a much larger threat to Soaring Dragon Continent. That fellow’s powers might even surpass Cang Yan from Heaven Realm. If he recovered from his injuries, recover his previous power, entered God’s Ruin and obtained some kind of treasure, that would really be a headache.
“Scarlet Emperor, it looks like he had escaped to Heaven Realm to recuperate…” Xue Wu Xia concluded after thinking about it for a long time.
“That’s a possibility. Because Tong Tian Tower is not very safe to him.” Luo Hua City Mistress agreed.
“Then let’s just compete in the growth of our respective powers! Let’s hope that we will be able to catch up to him before he recovers his powers.” Yue Yang was quite confident in himself. After killing Hei Hu who was at Heaven Ranked Level 5, his confidence had boosted.
Most importantly, Zhi Zun had given him an enlightenment.
The real ‘Innate Elder Realm’ was something that made all other ranks insignificant.
Although Yue Yang had not yet managed to reach the real ‘Innate Elder Realm’, and that he wasn’t able to fully master the ‘Innate Elder’s Heart’, he already had a goal to reach for.
As they were discussing about this, Ye Kong, Fatty Hai, Li Brothers, Xue Tan Lang and the others appeared on the teleportation portal outside. They would come here almost every day. Other than listening to Yue Yang talking about the details of the ancient war, sharing that one-of-a-kind battle experiences, they had also come to secretly train. The two Amphibious Fish Demons that Yue Yang captured from Heaven Realm had now become their training partners.
With their powers, of course they wouldn’t be able to win.
However, with such a strong training partner, they would definitely be able to improve quickly.
“All these are Ancient Slaughterer Beast King’s blood. I have purified them with Nirvana Flames. Even a single drop contains a huge power that you wouldn’t be able to bear.” Yue Yang took out a crystal bottle. With a stern look, he said, “Do you really want to drink it? Have you guys truly decided on this? I didn’t have much time to research, so I don’t know what kind of effects this will have. You guys might turn into an Ancient Slaughterer-like monsters… or you might even die instantly the moment you drink it!”
“Gulp!” Fatty Hai, Ye Kong and the others immediately tensed up when they heard Yue Yang. They nervously swallowed a gulp of saliva.
“I have thought about it, I don’t want to drink a monster’s blood!” The Golden Elf Bao’er was the first one to give up. To her, it didn’t matter if her level rose faster or slower.
“I will drink. Even if my body explodes, I don’t care. At least, I must rise to the Innate Realm. I’m not willing to stay weak!” The Ox-head girl Fan Lun Tie had the complete opposite reaction to Bao’er.
She longed for a far greater power, even if she might lose her life as a price.
Fatty Hai suddenly walked out and waved at the others. He revealed a relaxed smile and said: “I shall be the first to try it! Haha, actually I look more or less like the Ancient Slaughterer when I transform. Maybe my ancestors thousands of years ago had drunk Ancient Slaughterer’s blood, haha, haha…”
Although he was laughing, a bead of sweat was trickling down his forehead.
Facing death, who would be able to feel confident and at ease?
