Chapter 991: Parents’ Revival
The final step of fusing the soul with the body required some time. It was not as fast as the two previous steps.
Bi Yuntian’s entire body became enveloped in a bright white light. The light gradually permeated the ice caskets before enveloping it completely. Her soul slowly re-entered her body with the help of the Radiant Saint Force origin energy inside her head.
Jian Chen, Tian Jian, and the others watched Bi Yuntian fixedly. They were all filled with anticipation.
The mercenaries entering and leaving the city noticed the powerful white light from the origin energy. It immediately drew many of them over, but before they could approach the region, they were blocked by an invisible force.
However, this did not reduce the mercenaries’ curiosity at all. They watched from afar, which caused more and more people to gather in the end. Very soon, it had even attracted a few old, knowledgeable mercenaries who cried out.
“That’s the Radiant Saint Force that can only be controlled by Radiant Saint Master. Look at the coffin before the caster. Is it a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master resurrecting the dead, making the people in the coffin live again?”
As a chain reaction, all the mercenaries who watched on out of interest became stunned. They all looked toward Jian Chen’s group with respect and admiration that they struggled to hide.
Ordinary Radiant Saint Masters were probably extremely commonly seen in Mercenary City, it would not attract anyone’s attention. However, it would be a different story if they were Class 7.
This was because there were just too few Class 7 Radiant Saint Masters on the Tian Yuan Continent. There were only twenty or so of them, even with the whole continent in perspective. As such, they were even rarer than Saint Kings. Meanwhile, a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master had just appeared outside Mercenary City, currently casting the technique to resurrect the dead. This was something so rare that could never be seen even across thousands of years.
The news of a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master bringing back the dead outside Mercenary City spread very quickly, immediately creating a huge disturbance. Even more people hurried out from the city. They all wanted to see the heaven-defying abilities of a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master.
Some individuals from larger clans even considered pulling the Class 7 Radiant Saint Master to their side or recruiting them.
Very quickly, a huge, densely-packed crowd gathered outside the city. All of them watched on from five kilometers away, while a few Heaven Saint Masters took to the skies. They watched from high up, not because they did not want to approach Jian Chen’s group, but because no one had the power to cross the five kilometer boundary.
Although Jian Chen’s group knew what was happening in the surroundings, no one cared about it. All of them devoted their attention to Bi Yuntian inside the ice casket.
Time passed slowly. Night fell and day broke once more. Twenty four hours had passed in the blink of an eye and during this time, nothing happened to the light around Bi Yuntian. Jian Chen and the others stood like statues for the entire day.
A great group of people had gathered from Mercenary City. Although a whole day had passed, their numbers failed to decrease and had even increased. They formed a densely-packed encirclement around Jian Chen and the others.
At this moment, the milky-white light around Bi Yuntian began to fade and disappeared at a visible rate. Those with sharp eyes could tell that the light was not actually vanishing, but rather slowly entering Bi Yuntian’s body. She was absorbing it.
Bi Yuntian’s change caused Jian Chen’s eyes to freeze. Then, he closed his eyes, using the three soul-techniques to check on the condition of Bi Yuntian’s soul. When he opened his eyes once again, delight filled his face.
“It succeeded, it succeeded. My mother’s soul has successfully fused with her body,” Jian Chen said with a trembling voice. He was so ecstatic that he became rather unnatural. He had looked forward to this day for far too long.
Ming Dong, Tie Ta, and the others all smiled as well. They were happy for Jian Chen, that he could revive his parents.
The milky-white light completely disappeared and the paleness slowly receded from Bi Yuntian’s face. It was replaced by a rosy red, but she did not wake up.
“According to the records of the three techniques, those who do not wake up immediately have their souls in an extremely weak form, which can’t support their bodies. The souls need to be nourished for a period of time, with a maximum length of three days,” Jian Chen murmured excitedly. Without any hesitation, he used the three techniques once more to revive Changyang Ba.
After another day, Jian Chen successfully gathered Changyang Ba’s soul and fused it into this body. However, he did not wake up either. Both their souls were very weak and needed to be nourished in the body for a period of time before they were able to wake up.
Jian Chen’s excitement had already peaked with the revival of his parents. He struggled to calm down even after quite a lengthy amount of time.
“Jian Chen, let’s bring your parents into the city first. They can slowly awaken there,” Tian Jian said as he saw more and more people gather in the surroundings.
Jian Chen agreed without any hesitation to this suggestion. He wanted to find a peaceful place for his parents to awaken.
Afterward, Jian Chen’s group took to the air as Jian Chen carried the ice casket. They flew toward the city, directly entering it through the air.
Mercenary City had an iron rule that no one could fly within the city, or they would suffer the punishment of the barrier spirit. As a result, all the mercenaries became wide-eyed when they saw Jian Chen’s group enter directly through the air. They did not suffer any punishment, which caused the gazes of all the mercenaries to be filled with admiration.
“They must be part of the upper echelon of Mercenary City. Only the upper echelon have the right to fly in the city,” discussed quite a few people.
Jian Chen did not return to the divine hall. Instead, he went to another independent space under Tian Jian’s lead. He settled down in a luxurious palace, quietly waiting for his parents to wake up.
Rui Jin and Hei Yu remained outside. Xiao Ling was already extremely merciful for letting the two of them into the city. No foreign race could enter the spaces carved open within Mercenary City.
Jian Chen, Ming Dong, and Tie Ta waited beside Bi Yuntian and Changyang Ba for the two to wake up. After two whole days, Bi Yuntian’s finger finally twitched slightly. Then, her eyes slowly opened; her eyes were filled with confusion.
“Mother, you’ve finally woken up,” Jian Chen called out with a trembling voice. Tears began to well uncontrollably in his eyes.
Bi Yuntian’s eyes froze when she heard this familiar voice. The confusion quickly vanished from her eyes and she looked toward the direction of the voice. She immediately discovered Jian Chen’s face, a face she was most familiar with.
“Xiang’er…” Bi Yuntian cried out. Her memories surged forth like a flood, before they stopped at the moment when old man Situ and his four other cronies had come to caused trouble for the Changyang clan.
Bi Yuntian’s face changed abruptly when her memories reached there. She cried out, “Xiang’er, go. There are Saint Ruler coming to get you.” Bi Yuntian had no idea she was no longer in the Changyang clan as she had just woken up. She subconciously wanted to stand up from the bed, but as soon as she moved, she discovered that she was completely powerless. She could not even stand up.
“Mother, just lie there and don’t move. Rest well first. The matters from before have already past. Those Saint Rulers can no longer oppress me,” Jian Chen said gently as he hurried to urged Bi Yuntian to lie down.
These slight movements seemed to have consumed all the power left in Bi Yuntian. She collapsed powerlessly onto the bed and heaved heavily for quite a while. Then, she asked, “Xiang’er, just what has happened to me? Why don’t I have any power?” Bi Yuntian’s eyes suddenly narrowed as she said that. She became shocked and murmured, “I clearly remember that I died to the hands of that Saint Ruler, so how am I still alive? Xiang’er, what is this all about? And where is this place? It doesn’t seem like the Changyang clan.”
“Mother, this is Mercenary City…” Jian Chen started to explain everything from start to end.
“What did you say!? Xiang’er, it has already been ten years since then? And my life was resurrected by your abilities as a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master?” Bi Yuntian became tongue-tied after she learned everything that had happened in all those years. She became filled with disbelief.
Jian Chen nodded and replied, “Mother, there’s also father. Father has been saved by me as well, but he’s currently unconscious. He should wake up shortly.”
Afterward, Jian Chen, Ming Dong, and Tie Ta sat down beside Bi Yuntian and began talking with her. They told her the matters that had occurred in the past ten years as well as the changes to the Changyang clan bit by bit. However, they did hide some parts.
Half a day later, Changyang Ba woke up as well. He learned about his current situation from Jian Chen very quickly, and also became tongue-tied. He struggled to calm down after a very long time.
The one most excited was definitely Jian Chen as his parents both woke up. Jian Chen had never been so happy even with all the years that had passed.
Jian Chen spoke some more with his parents, before leaving with Ming Dong and Tie Ta. He left them in a safe environment to rest well. This was also to give them some time to accept what was going on.
In the next few days, Jian Chen made soup from hundred-year-old heavenly resources, which possessed a mild medicinal effect to nourish his parent’s body. Afterward, he slowly increased it to several-hundred-year-old heavenly resources, and then thousand-year-old and several-thousand-year-old heavenly resources.
His parents had just been resurrected. Their souls and bodies had been separated for so long. Although their bodies had been maintained perfectly and had been nourished by the origin energy of Radiant Saint Force, a huge disparity still existed if they were compared to the bodily conditions of ordinary people. They needed to slowly recuperate.
Bi Yuntian and Changyang Ba recovered quickly under the medicine made from the heavenly resources. They made a full recovery in just half a month.
The two of them had completely accepted the unbelievable facts that lay before them after the half a month of buffering. They knew that they had died once already.
