Chapter 1258: Recurrence of the Nine-colored Clouds
Jian Chen immediately collected the Reconstruction Gel. Although it was extremely common in the former world of the sword spirits, it was probably something that would never appear on the Tian Yuan Continent.
“It’s just a pity that there’s only fist-sized amount of this gel. It’s nowhere near enough to reconstruct the sea goddess’ body. I’ll need to collect as much of this gel and essence from the Springs of Life as possible in the future,” Jian Chen mumbled to himself before continuing on his way with Tie Ta.
Back on the Tian Yuan Continent, Changyang Ba and Jian Chen’s mother, Bi Yuntian currently sat in the conference hall of the Changyang clan with several sagely old men in luxurious robes as they conversed.
Because Changyang Ba and Bi Yuntian had managed to give birth to an extremely impressive son, they had already become figures that could create a great sensation. Even though their strength was nothing on the Tian Yuan Continent, the respect they deserved even exceeded the kings of the eight great kingdoms. Before the two of them, even the Saint King ancestors of ancient clans needed to show some respect and lower themselves to be on friendly terms. They dared not to offend them.
The sagely old men that currently spoke with them were the Saint Rulers of the closest ancient clan to the Gesun Kingdom. They had come under the orders of their ancestor with precious gifts to visit the patriarch of the clan and the fourth madam.
Saint Rulers were all hermit experts on the Tian Yuan Continent. It was common for them to not appear within a century, and some people could even go their entire lives without catching a glimpse of a Saint Ruler’s glory. There were no Saint Rulers that watched over any organizations in the Gesun Kingdom apart from the Changyang clan. If it was before, Changyang Ba would have needed to nod and bow while speaking carefully. He would have been fearful of offending a Saint Ruler with just one wrong word and drawing disaster upon his clan.
But now, not only did the two of them stand on equal ground with Saint Rulers of ancient clans, able to converse without any fear, they could even show dissatisfaction. That was how glorious and prideful they had become.
It had been more than once that they felt prideful for their impressive son, because they both knew very well that the status of the clan and their own glory was all brought on by their son, Jian Chen, himself.
If they did not have Jian Chen, the current Changyang clan would probably be so insignificant that they would have been trampled by the Huayun sect, which only had two Heaven Saint Masters.
“Patriarch, madam Bi, we shall bid farewell. Our ancestor of the Yunhe clan has personally told us to tell the patriarch and madam that you are welcome to visit our clan any time. We will definitely welcome you with the greatest etiquette. We hope that we can be on good terms with your great clan and the esteemed young master forever and become the greatest of friends.” The Saint Rulers from the ancient clans stood up and clasped their hands at the couple. They spoke extremely politely.
Changyang Ba and Bi Yuntian hurried to return the gesture, but they were completely calm since experts of ancient and hermit clans had constantly visited them over the past few years. They had received Saint Rulers countless times, and even the Saint King ancestor of the Tianmu clan had paid them a personal visit.
At this very moment, a powerful ripple of energy suddenly emerged from the back courtyards of the Changyang clan. Even with the formations and barriers, it was not concealed.
The Saint Rulers who were about to leave immediately became surprised. They were shocked by the powerful ripple of energy. It was just far too powerful. With their understanding, even Saint Rulers at the Ninth Heavenly Layer could not emit such powerful ripples of energy.
“Patriarch, madam Bi, may I ask what this is about?” One of the old men asked out of curiosity.
Changyang Ba and Bi Yuntian looked at each other. They had obviously felt the ripple of energy come from the back courtyard, but that had already become the forbidden grounds of the Changyang clan. Other than their son, no one in the clan could casually set foot there, so they had no idea what was happening there.
“Look at the sky outside!” Suddenly, one of the Saint Rulers cried out as he pointed at the sky outside the hall.
Everyone immediately shifted their gazes and saw that a layer of colorful clouds had already flooded the deep blue sky in a silent manner. There was a total of seven colors.
“They are seven-colored rainbow clouds. It’s the sign of someone reaching Saint King. Someone’s broken through to Saint King!”
“Is there really another person breaking through to Saint King in the Changyang clan?”
The Saint Rulers of the Yunhe clan all cried out as unhideable admiration appeared plastered across their faces. In this era that lacked Saint Emperors, Saint Kings had basically become the greatest experts of the continent, existences that stood at the apex.
Even though it was just breaking through to Saint King, just overcoming the gap between Saint Ruler and Saint King made reaching the Ninth Heavenly Layer of Saint King and standing on the apex of the continent a possibility.
The rainbow clouds had appeared silently and covered a radius of several hundred kilometers. Even the Saint Kings in Mercenary City that was a million kilometers away could sense it.
The new grand elder of Mercenary City hovered above the land as he stared in the direction of the Gesun Kingdom in interest. He mumbled, “From today on, another Saint King has appeared on the Tian Yuan Continent. I just wonder who it is.”
The four Imperial Protectors of the Qinhuang Kingdom silently hovered above the four Qin Heaven Palaces as they stared silently in the direction of the Gesun Kingdom. Admiration filled all of their eyes.
Every Saint Ruler wished that they could become a Saint King one day and truly stand at the apex of the continent. Unfortunately, there were many people who would end up stuck at the Ninth Heavenly Layer, and there were only a few who could truly overcome the barrier of becoming a Saint King.
Aside from them, all the Saint Rulers who had sensed that someone was about to become a Saint King hovered high up in the air in various places across the continent. They all stared blankly at the horizon.
A long whistle rang out from the back courtyard of the Changyang clan. A figure shot into the sky with lightning-like speed and bathed in endless light. It was an extremely impressive sight.
The figure was a beautiful woman. Even though she seemed to have reached middle age, she was still extremely pretty. She was Changyang Zu Yeyun.
She had been stuck at the Ninth Heavenly Layer of Saint Ruler for many years already. Her mental state had been incomplete because she was always thinking about her son, Changyang Zu Yunkong, which was why she never broke through. Not only had her son returned safely, even the seal in his head had been removed, so her greatest dream of many years had been fulfilled. Now that her mental state was complete, she had finally become a Saint King.
At this moment, a Space Gate suddenly appeared. Changyang Zu Yunxiao, who had been tasked with watching over the royal palace of the Gesun Kingdom, rushed back as soon as possible. The gaze he used to look at Changyang Zu Yeyun was filled with excitement. Not only did reaching Saint King bring on an increase in strength, it also brought an increase of life. Saint Kings could live longer.
“Another Saint King’s appeared for the Changyang clan.” The Saint Rulers from the Yunhe clan all sighed emotionally.
However, only a short while after the seven-colored clouds had appeared for Changyang Zu Yeyun when she became a Saint King, they rapidly dispersed. Soon after, rainbow clouds of even brighter colors suddenly filled the sky, stretching even further. This time, the clouds engulfed the entire continent, and they had increased to nine colors instead of the seven from earlier. The nine colors merged together to form the most beautiful scene ever. The clouds dyed the entire world with different colors and blotted out the sun.
The joy on Changyang Zu Yeyun and Changyang Zu Yunxiao’s faces immediately froze. They stared blankly at the nine-colored clouds as disbelief filled their faces.
Changyang Zu Xiao appeared silently in the sky. He also stared at the clouds in shock as his expression became extremely mixed.
