You Lan exclaimed softly with a delighted expression, “Brother Su, you’ve finally let down your guard and told me your real name?”
Su Zimo was stunned.
You Lan’s reaction was completely out of his expectations.
Instinctively, he looked at the three Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords.
The three Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords did not react either when they heard Su Zimo’s name.
“Desolate Martial wishes to establish a Dao and impart martial arts to all living beings!”
Everyone knew of the title Desolate Martial.
Apart from some old friends, not many people in the cultivation world knew that Desolate Martial’s name was Su Zimo.
It was like how everyone knew of the title of Asura but did not know that his name was Yan Beichen.
There were many Void Reversions that died in the hands of Su Zimo and he did not know the names of some of the titular disciples either.
To these paragons and monster incarnates, the Dao title was their symbol.
Usually, when befriending other fellow Daoists, they would only say their Dao titles.
A name like Su Zimo was more like a mark of the mortal world.
Su Zimo was slightly stunned but he reacted quickly and felt relieved.
That was normal.
Although he was bent on killing Dao Being Xuan Yu, he did not know Dao Being Xuan Yu’s name at all. It was enough that he knew that his Dao name was Xuan Yu and that he was from Glass Palace – it did not matter what his name was.
Initially, Su Zimo’s intention was to remind You Lan.
In fact, he was already prepared for a huge battle.
However, he did not expect that You Lan did not know his name. Instead, she misunderstood his intentions of revealing his name as him letting down his guard.
“Brother Su, I want to revive my dynasty. Are you willing to help me?”
You Lan took a deep breath and looked at Su Zimo without blinking, asking softly with anticipation.
Su Zimo shook his head.
You Lan’s eyes dimmed.
“I know that this request is a little abrupt, but…”
Before You Lan could finish, Su Zimo interrupted her with a wave of his hand.
With a calm expression, he replied bluntly, “Don’t think about reviving your dynasty anymore. It’s impossible.”
You Lan frowned slightly and felt a little angry.
It was her dream to revive her dynasty!
She did not want to admit defeat!
She did not think that she would lose either.
As long as she could obtain Dao Being Wushuang’s help and suppress Dao Being Desolate Martial, she would definitely be able to rebuild the Great You and fight against the Great Zhou for a split of the North Region’s territory!
Earlier on, she thought that this person was pleasing to the eye. However, she suddenly realized that this green-robed cultivator was a little annoying.
“Brother Su, even if you don’t intend to help, there’s no need to attack me as such, right?”
You Lan tried her best to control her emotions and said in a deep voice, “If I can obtain the support of some aristocratic families or gentry clans during this trip to the North Region Dao Meet, not only will I be able to revive my dynasty, I might even be able to overturn the Great Zhou Dynasty!”
Su Zimo shook his head and smiled, saying word by word, “As long as Desolate Martial is alive, you will never be able to revive your dynasty and topple the Great Zhou Dynasty!”
“Fate is decided by our own hands!”
You Lan’s tone turned unyielding as well. “I intend to ask Dao Being Wushuang to help this time round. If he’s willing to help, Desolate Martial won’t be able to do anything!”
Su Zimo reared his head and laughed.
“What are you laughing at?”
You Lan asked coldly.
Su Zimo pursed his lips. “Is Dao Being Wushuang that powerful?”
“In this generation, there are many paragons and monster incarnates. It’s a golden era for the entire Tianhuang Mainland! Desolate Martial isn’t invincible either. There will definitely be someone who can surpass him and trample him beneath their feet!”
You Lan was enraged and her expression turned cold.
She could understand why Su Zimo would not want to help her.
However, this person was way too despicable. He was actually sparing no effort to attack her – she truly could not accept that!
At that moment, You Lan did not realize that Su Zimo was not trying to attack her. Instead, he was reminding her to back off to avoid defeat.
Both of them did not have the same viewpoint.
They would only end up arguing if the conversation continued.
Although the two Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords behind You Lan did not say anything, their gazes towards Su Zimo were cold.
Earlier on, they did not express anything when Su Zimo threatened their princes.
After all, their princes were the ones who were unreasonable first.
Now that the green-robed cultivator was so brazen as to argue with Princess You Lan, the two Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords wanted to kill him!
As long as You Lan gave the order or a look, both of them would attack decisively!
You Lan stood up and intended to leave.
The two Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords even asked with their eyes if she wanted to make a move on the green-robed cultivator.
She shook her head gently.
Although she was a little angry, it was not to the point where she wanted to kill indiscriminately.
Furthermore, she and Su Zimo merely had different thoughts and opinions. The two of them were still chatting casually earlier on and there was no need for them to kill each other.
You Lan turned back to look at Su Zimo.
The green-robed cultivator was still sipping his tea indifferently, as though he did not realize that his words had nearly gotten him killed.
This person has no shrewdness at all. Could I have misjudged him?
You Lan sighed internally and turned to leave.
Su Zimo, who was seated at the table, was expressionless but he sighed internally.
If You Lan had not stopped the two Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords from attacking, the two Imperial Advisors would have been reduced to two corpses by now!
You Lan thought that she had saved Su Zimo’s life by stopping the two Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords because of her benevolence.
However, she did not know that her benevolence had saved herself!
For the next few days, You Lan spent most of her time in the cabin.
She would only come out occasionally to chat with Su Zimo.
However, after their previous argument, there was clearly more animosity between the two of them. Although You Lan did not chase Su Zimo and the others away, she did not have the same enthusiasm as when they first met.
On the other hand, the two princes were much friendlier towards Su Zimo. Each time, they would smile and accompany him, as though they had already forgotten about their previous unhappiness.
About 10 days later, the outline of a city gradually appeared on the horizon.
As they got closer, the city became clearer.
The city walls extended for 500 kilometers with no end in sight. Traces of time were etched on the gigantic black bricks.
How long was 500 kilometers?
Cultivators who had just entered the Void Reversion realm could only extend their spirit consciousness to a radius of 50 kilometers.
Only the spirit consciousness of Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords could extend to 500 kilometers!
Just by looking at the outline of the ancient city, one could tell that it was grand and majestic, even more spectacular than the capital of the Great Zhou Dynasty!
It was like an ancient behemoth sprawled on the ground.
Qian Heaven City!
It had a long history and could be traced back to the ancient era.
All these years, the North Region Dao Meet would be held in this ancient city.
Su Zimo’s group arrived before the city.
Although their spirit vessel was huge, it was as tiny as a grain of sand before the ancient city.
“We’re finally here.”
You Lan stood in front of the spirit vessel and murmured softly as she looked at the massive ancient city before her.
She had a complicated expression and her eyes flashed with anticipation, struggle, helplessness and shame…
“If you regret it, it’s not too late to return now.”
Su Zimo could sense the change in You Lan’s emotions and said indifferently.
You Lan was silent. Eventually, her gaze turned resolute!
As long as she could revive her dynasty, she would not regret it no matter how huge a price she had to pay!
“Since I’ve come this far, there’s no way out for me!”
You Lan clenched her fists and said resolutely.
