Chapter 1651: Prior to the Negotiations (Five)
Changyang Ba and Bi Yuntian both became stunned. They stared at Shangguan Mu'er in a daze. At that moment, they found that their minds had stopped working.
The island mistress of Three Saint Island's name was thunderous to their ears. Back when Jian Chen was in seclusion, and the Origin realm experts of the two worlds were negotiating, the Origin realm experts that belonged to the Tian Yuan Continent's side were absolutely filled with fear. In order to avoid any conflict with the foreign Origin realm experts, they had set the location of negotiations to the city lord's estate in Flame City. This was an indication to just how pressured the Origin realm experts of this world felt when the Origin realm experts of the other world remained here.
During the negotiations, the Origin realm experts on the Tian Yuan Continent's side could see the fear for the island mistress of Three Saint Island from the foreign Origin realm experts, which allowed them to understand that the foreigners would not speak brazenly or try to intimidate them during the negotiations. This was not because of Flame City but because of the island mistress of Three Saint Island.
After all, Flame City would only stop Xiong Zhong's group from fighting and destroying the place. If the outcome displeased them, they could have used threats or even just intimidate the representatives of this world. There was no need for them to act so politely and fearful. The true deterrence was the island mistress of Three Saint Island.
Although Changyang Ba and Bi Yuntian never took part in the negotiations, they knew a lot of the details due to their unique identity.
As a result, the couple felt respect from the bottom of their hearts for the island mistress of Three Saint Island. Even though she was not as powerful as their son, her existence was enough to deter all the Origin realm experts from the foreign world aside from the Spiritking.
Yet in that moment, the island mistress who they respected so much was actually calling them mother and father. It was just too shocking, shaking the depths of their old souls.
"Y- y- you're actually the child's mother?" Changyang Ba only recovered after quite a long while. He immediately stared at Shangguan Mu'er with shock and disbelief plastered across his face.
He would have never even dreamt of something like this. The female sovereign who he respected so much was actually his daughter-in-law.
Shangguan Mu'er glanced at Shangguan Aojian and nodded gently as she saw how shocked the old couple had become.
Changyang Ba immediately gasped after receiving her confirmation. His heart beat extremely heavily at that moment. As a matter of fact, his heart had never beaten so quickly. They felt even more shocked now than they felt when they learned that their son was no weaker than the Spiritking.
"S- so you're actually my grandson." Tears pooled in Bi Yuntian's eyes emotionally as she looked at Shangguan Aojian benevolently. She could not help but clench the pouch of fragrance that Shangguan Aojian had initially gifted to her tightly.
Shangguan Aojian had personally made this pouch of fragrance. He had used large quantities of precious heavenly resources. The value of the heavenly resources was enough to shock countless people. Only now did Bi Yuntian learn that the pouch of fragrance was actually a gift from her own grandson, so her value of the pouch of fragrance soared several times over.
There was obviously no longer a need to keep Shangguan Mu'er and Shangguan Aojian's other identity a secret. Very soon, this stunning piece of news spread across the entire Changyang clan, shocking them all. The most shocked person was Changyang Ke. He could only sigh emotionally inside.
Soon afterwards, the news spread across the entire Tian Yuan Continent like wildfire. It had even spread across the three other races, surprising everyone in the world. Countless people sighed in amazement.
In Flame City, a young girl passed through the bustling streets with a young boy, constantly moving from shop to shop. Whenever she saw something that caught her eye, she would buy it without any hesitation no matter the price. She was so extravagant that the descendants of many large and luxurious clans could not help but sigh.
The two people who seemed like siblings were two of the three Origin realm experts who guarded Flame City, Xiao Jin, and Xiao Ling. However, they had currently changed their appearances, so only those who knew their behaviour and habits very well could recognise them.
Conversations about Shangguan Aojian and Shangguan Mu'er's other identity were littered across the city. Obviously, the two of them had heard about it as well.
"Hmm? The young island master of Three Saint Island is actually big brother's son," Xiao Ling murmured. She thought a little before saying to Xiao Jin, "Brother Xiao Jin, let's go to the Changyang clan."
"Alright then, sister Xiao Ling," Xiao Jin sighed a little. He was completely helpless. As a spirit of the attributes, his body grew very slowly, but his mind was unlike Xiao Ling's, permanently unable to grow. As a result, although Xiao Jin seemed like a young boy, he was already as mature as an adult. However, no matter how mature he was, Xiao Ling always treated him as her young brother, pulling him everywhere.
At the same time, a young man sat in the forbidden grounds of the city lord's estate, cultivating there. Dense origin energy circulated around him and a tremendous pressure would radiate from him from time to time.
The young man was the white tiger in human form. Unlike Xiao Jin and Xiao Ling, he worked extremely arduously on his cultivation. He did not spend a single moment on pointless things. He basically spent his entire time cultivating, apart from spending some time with his mother. He would not pause unless something major occurred.
At this moment, the white tiger's eyes snapped open. At the moment he did that, the space before him shattered, being reduced to void. Just his gaze alone had surpassed the limits of the space in his surroundings. Compared to the past, his strength had clearly increased.
"The young island master of Three Saint Island is actually my elder brother's son. I need to go congratulate him now that this has been announced," the white tiger murmured. He soon vanished.
Tie Ta currently sat on the throne in the War God Hall. He radiated with a dense, golden light. The light permeated the entire divine hall as if it had fused with the golden divine hall.
Over twenty Saint Emperor hall elders sat below the throne. Every single one had their eyes closed; they were also cultivating, absorbing a tiny portion of the golden light from Tie Ta.
Suddenly, Tie Ta's eyes snapped open. The dense, golden light around him gradually dispersed as well before vanishing completely. The entire divine hall returned to its previous state.
The hall elders beneath the throne all stopped cultivating at the same time. They opened their eyes and looked at Tie Ta politely.
"Prepare rich gifts! I'm going to the Changyang clan," Tie Ta chuckled aloud and stood up, passing down orders.
"Yes, sir! I'll go prepare them immediately," a hall elder immediately replied and left politely.
