Chapter 1429: Ten-thousand-year-old Icesouls (One)
Within the snow-white, sculpture-like Ice Goddess Hall, the armored protector Shui sat on her bed of ice like a statue. She gradually opened her eyes before hesitating slightly. With a gentle wave of her hand, the space outside the Ice Goddess Hall immediately began to distort. The Ice Goddess Hall rapidly blurred in the distorted space, vanishing in the blink of an eye.
The icy tundra remained the same as before, except the Ice Goddess Hall that had stood there for countless years had vanished.
"I've already moved the Ice Goddess Hall into a separate space, isolating it from the outside world. I hope Jian Chen's arrival will not disturb her majesty," protector Shui murmured to herself in the Ice Goddess Hall. A sliver of helplessness was present in her icy-cold and emotionless eyes.
"I may not be able to make things difficult for Jian Chen because of Mo Tianyun, but I can stop her majesty from seeing Jian Chen since her majesty insists on giving a ten-thousand-year-old Icesoul to him and I cannot change her mind."
At the same time, Changyang Mingyue who was in another room of the divine hall suddenly roused from her cultivation. A sliver of doubt flickered through her eyes as she mumbled, "Weird. Why do I suddenly feel uneasy?"
Changyang Mingyue pondered with a frown for a while and lost interest in cultivation. She stood up and made her way out of her room, headed to protector Shui's side. She asked, "Protector Shui, it's been several years already, so why has my brother still not come? Has my brother come across some problems?"
Protector Shui gradually opened her eyes and rather politely said, "Your majesty, your brother is completely fine. He is currently busying himself with the matter of fending off the World of Forsaken Saints, which is why he has not come." Protector Shui was worried that Changyang Mingyue would think of going to the Tian Yuan Continent to help out Jian Chen again so she added, "Your brother now has the power to face off against Origin realm fighters. The foreign invasion is not enough to threaten him."
In order to make Changyang Mingyue believe what she said, protector Shui waved her hand and used an ability to condense a mirror of ice before her. It displayed the scene when Jian Chen had massacred the Saint Emperors from the foreign world with the Zi Ying Sword.
Changyang Mingyue could not help but smile happily when she saw how her brother was rampaging through the Saint Emperors in an unstoppable manner. She mumbled, "I never thought my brother was so strong."
"Your majesty, there's still one more year before your Profound Ice Body matures. At that time, you can leave the Ice Goddess Hall and go where you want to go," said protector Shui.
Anticipation appeared in Changyang Mingyue's eyes. She mumbled, "There's still one more year. In a year's time, I can go to the Tian Yuan Continent to look for brother. Father, mother, it's been so long since I've spent time with you. I wonder if you're still fine.
"Over the next year, I must work hard on cultivation and let the Profound Ice Body reach perfection as soon as possible. I'll go cultivate right now."
Protector Shui watched Changyang Mingyue leave. The light in her eyes flickered uneasily as she thought, "There's still one more year before her majesty's Profound Ice Body reaches perfection. At that time, I'll embed all three Icesouls into her majesty. That way, she cannot give them away. Jian Chen, I hope you do not disturb her majesty within the next year."
"Sigh… it's just a pity that I agreed to Mo Tianyun that I would not make things difficult for Jian Chen…"
Jian Chen did not recklessly charge into the screen of mist. He had personally witnessed how terrifying it was before. Even with his strength now and the Azulet swords, he was not confident he could get through the mist.
Jian Chen frowned. He had waited before the mist for a while and no changes had happened. He thought, "Last time I visited sister, she said that this entire tundra is under protector Shui's control. As soon as I set foot here, protector Shui will know about my arrival and send me over. Not only have I set foot in this tundra right, but I'm just a single layer of mist away from the Ice Goddess Hall. It's impossible for protector Shui to have not sensed me."
Jian Chen's gaze gradually grew colder as he stared at the mist that blocked his way. He thought, "This can only be explained by the fact that protector Shui does not want me in and does not want me to see my sister. Hmph, I've already arrived here today, so how can I leave so easily?"
Suddenly, Jian Chen's presence changed. He began to radiate a surging sword intent. At that moment, he seemed to have turned into a sword instead of an ordinary human. The terrifying sword intent seemed to shatter space and make the coldness around him collapse. Only the dense layer of mist before him remained unaffected.
Jian Chen was enveloped by a bright white light, completely obscuring his body. When the white light came into contact with the tough sheet of ice beneath him, the ice crisply cracked.
Two dazzling lights, one violet and one azure, appeared in the white light. They surged into the sky as they transformed into the silhouettes of swords.
Jian Chen's eyes shone brighter. He formed a seal with his hands and the Azulet swords on his back immediately shot out in a flash. The two of them began to spin like a whirlpool as they shot into the icy mist in front of him with a dazzling light.
Jian Chen did not hold back at all with that attack. He erupted with the power of the Origin realm. Wherever, the swords passed by, the space violently trembled, showing signs of shattering. Invisible sword Qi filled the surroundings, creating huge cracks in the tough ice on the ground.
The icy tundra was the domain of protector Shui, so the space was countless times tougher than the outside world. Jian chen's strike was enough to obliterate a world and split the Tian Yuan Continent into two. However, it did not even manage to cleave through the air in the icy tundra.
The Azulet swords shot into the icy mist as streaks of light. The mist immediately began to churn. When the mist came in contact with the sword Qi from the Azulet swords, it immediately emitted a hissing sound.
The Azulet swords shot several dozen meters into the mist in a single moment, leaving behind an open space behind them. However, the mist became more terrifying the deeper they went. After traveling three hundred meters in, the light from the two swords were immediately suppressed and they lost their bright color.
After traveling three hundred and sixty meters in, the light on the swords was completely suppressed, pushing it back into the swords themselves. A thin layer of ice crystals rapidly formed on the swords.Chapter Notes:
