Chapter 1431: Ten-thousand-year Icesouls (Three)
"Sister!" Jian Chen beamed with delight when he saw Changyang Mingyue. He temporarily put the matter of Rui Jin, Hong Lian, and Hei Yu aside and immediately walked over.
"Brother, you've finally come. I've waited for you for so many years already. It's been way more than the single year we agreed on before," Changyang Mingyue brightly smiled at Jian Chen as she stood at the entrance of the divine hall. She had spoken like she chastising Jian Chen, but she had no intentions of angering him at all.
Jian Chen smiled apologetically. He had always been busy with the revival of the sea goddess during that time. He had gone into the Sea of Despair with Yadriam in search of the sea goddess' supreme divine hall and just that had taken a very long time. When the two of them had returned with the divine hall, the agreed time had passed long ago. Afterward, he had to handle the sea goddess' resurrection ceremony and stop the two other hall elders.
Returning to the Tian Yuan Continent after that, he needed to handle the invasion of the foreign world, so he was just busy, forcing him to temporarily put off the promise, all the way until today.
Jian Chen gave Changyang Mingyue a simple explanation and Changyang Mingyue immediately smiled, "Brother, you don't need to explain things to me. I'm not blaming you." Changyang Mingyue gently sighed as she reached there, "It's just a pity that I haven't been able to leave the Ice Goddess Hall in all these years, making you suffer so much all by yourself. Otherwise, I would have helped you no matter what and taught all those enemies that have made things difficult for you a lesson."
Jian Chen smiled from the bottom of his heart when he heard her words. He said, "Sister, I now possess that strength. All my past enemies are no longer my opponent, even if they are Saint Emperors."
"Yeah, you've become so impressive now. You conducted a slaughter against the Saint Emperors of the foreign world, none of them were your opponent. You killed at least two hundred of them. I learned all this from protector Shui. Sigh, and I had thought that I was very powerful now, but I've only just discovered that I'm still not as great as you," Changyang Mingyue smiled. She did not become depressed at all and became happy for Jian Chen instead. She felt proud of her brother's strength.
"Brother, why don't you quickly tell me about the interesting things you've come across over the past few years. I'm extremely curious as to how your strength has increased so quickly," Changyang Mingyue asked out of interest.
Jian Chen gently smiled and soon gave a brief overview of everything that had happened to him over the past few years. However, he described many events in a single sentence and did not go into detail, including the matter regarding the Xuanhuang Microcosm. It was not because he did not trust Changyang Mingyue, but he was worried about revealing something to protector Shui, who had an unfathomable strength.
Jian Chen did not know how strong protector Shui was even now, whether she was of the Origin realm or at Godhood. He believed that even his communication techniques would not be able to hide what he said from her ears.
"Sister, seniors Rui Jin, Hong Lian, and Hei Yu who came with me a few years ago were sealed up here by protector Shui. I am completely in debt to the three of them. It's even possible to say that I would not still be alive if it wasn't for the three of them. Please help me persuade protector Shui to release the three seniors," said Jian Chen. He knew that he could only rely on his sister to save the three of them with his current strength.
"What! Something like that happened? This protector Shui is going more and more overboard, even laying her hands on your saviors. Let's go. I'll take you to see protector Shui right now," Changyang Mingyue was furious. She really cared about her brother. To her, his saviors were her saviors as well. Protector Shui's treatment of the three of them had angered her once again.
Changyang Mingyue immediately brought Jian Chen into the Ice Goddess Hall. As soon as he stepped into the divine hall, a bone-piercing chill appeared and caused Jian Chen to shiver uncontrollably. He immediately began to circulate the energy within him to resist it.
This was the first time Jian Chen had entered the extremely mysterious Ice Goddess Hall, so he could not help but look around. He discovered that the interior of the divine hall was snow-white, completely constructed from ice crystals. It seemed just like a world of ice.
Besides that, the mysterious divine hall was not really eye-catching. However, Jian Chen understood that behind the divine hall's ordinary appearance was something terrifying that he could not sense.
He knew that it was not because the divine hall was ordinary, but it was because he was not strong enough and unable to see through it.
Along the way, Jian Chen discovered a few other people cultivating within the divine hall. There were many Saint Rulers and Saint Kings and even quite a few Heaven Saint Masters. They all worked as servants.
All the people that Changyang Mingyue came across bowed politely toward her. They were extremely courteous.
"These people should all be from the Tian Yuan Continent." Jian Chen glanced at them casually and discovered that they were all human.
Very soon, Jian Chen was brought before protector Shui with Changyang Mingyue's guidance. Protector Shui remained seated on her bed in her silver-white armor the same as before, and she only stood up to bow to Changyang Mingyue the moment she saw her. However, before Changyng Mingyue could ask about anything, she said to Jian Chen, "The three of them were saved soon after you left. They are no longer on this tundra."
Jian Chen became stunned and was overwhelmed by disbelief. Was there still anyone who could save the three of them with protector Shui's strength?
"Senior, who saved them?" Jian Chen asked with clasped hands.
"Mo Tianyun," protector Shui responded coldly.
"What! Senior Mo Tianyun did? Is senior Mo Tianyun still on the continent?" Jian Chen was shocked as his heart churned. This matter was just far too astounding.
"It was only a clone of Mo Tianyun. He probably just sent it down from a higher world. I can't sense the presence of that clone any longer now. It must have dispersed. After all, it's not that easy to come to this world," protector Shui replied.
Jian Chen's looked at protector Shui in surprise. He felt that she was rather different today. According to his understanding of her, she would never have wasted words on others with her pride, yet she had become patient enough today to explain things to him. Today was quite an abnormality.
"Protector Shui, are you looking down on me? Since the three seniors were my brother's saviors, they're my saviors as well. You actually trapped my saviors here. You really are going more and more overboard," Changyang Mingyue stared at protector Shui coldly. Protector Shui was powerful, but she was not afraid of her.
"This one understands. This one trapped them only because they possessed saint artifacts that did not belong to this world," protector Shui politely responded.
"Let's just leave the matter at this since the seniors have already been freed, sister," Jian Chen quickly added seeing how Changyang Mingyue was still furious. Protector Shui was a powerful expert after all. She possessed her own pride, so he did not wish for his sister to press her too much and end up with some unexpected outcomes.
Changyang Mingyue snorted coldly, "Since my brother's put it like that, I won't dwell on this matter anymore. However, I don't wish to see something like this happen again, protector Shui."
"This one understands," protector Shui remained very polite. She did not feel displeased at all even while being scolded by Changyang Mingyue, who had not even reached Origin realm, despite being a Godking. It was as if this was supposed to happen.
This was because Changyang Mingyue was the reincarnation of the snow goddess. Similar to the ice goddess, she was her master.
Changyang Mingyue and Jian Chen left. The two of them strolled through the divine hall casually as they talked about their daily lives.
"There' still one more year before my Profound Ice Body matures. At that time, I'll be able to leave this place, so don't worry, brother. The next time the World of Forsaken Saints invades, I'll fight alongside you. Don't underestimate me alright. I may not be as strong as you right now, I'm only a Saint Emperor, but once my Profound Ice Body matures, I'll immediately reach the Origin realm. Coupled with the ten-thousand-year-old Icesouls, I'll only become even more powerful. Even you might not end up being my opponent," Changyang Mingyue giggled. Afterward, she immediately pulled out a fist-sized piece of ice crystal with a flip of her hand.
"Brother, this is a ten-thousand-year-old Icesoul. I have three of these. Protector Shui said that each one of them can only be condensed after a million years, so it's extremely precious. I'll give you one as a gift from me." Changyang Mingyue passed the Icesoul to Jian Chen.
Jian Chen's eyes narrowed. He stared at the ten-thousand-year-old Icesoul as shock gradually appeared. He could sense that the energy within the Icesoul was even more terrifying than a fifth grade Violet Cloud Peaches. It possessed several times the energy, possibly even several dozen times the energy in a peach.
At the same time, the energy within the Icesoul was very gentle, just like the peaches. It could easily be absorbed.
"Sister, this is for you to increase your strength. I can't accept it." Jian Chen immediately declined the gift. He knew that the ten-thousand-year-old Icesoul was even more precious than the fifth grade Violet Cloud Peaches, which was exactly why he could not accept it. The three ten-thousand-year-old Icesouls were the most precious items on his sister. They were to increase her own strength, and every one that she lost would reduce her strength in the future. On the other hand, he possessed quite a few heavenly resources similar to the Icesoul. They may not be as precious, but he had many more of them.
Changyang Mingyue frowned and her face immediately darkened. She was displeased and said, as if she was scolding a junior, "Brother, this is a gift from your sister. You have to accept it whether you want to or not, or you'll be looking down on your sister."
"Sister, this…" Jian Chen was troubled. He wished that she would use all three Icesouls and would become even more powerful.
"Take it. You have to accept my gifts. I'll stay by your side until you fully absorb it. You're not allowed to take it out," Changyang Mingyue said without giving him any room to reject her gift. She did not let him take the Icesoul away because she was afraid that protector Shui would steal it back.Chapter Notes:
