The middle-aged woman was naturally the saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan, Xia Xishuang’s master.
Now that her disciple was in trouble, of course she wouldn’t be able to sit back and do nothing.
Even if she was ruthless, her superiors wouldn’t allow it.
Her disciple was an innate golden spirit body who was a natural-born sword cultivator. If nothing went wrong, she should be able to take over as the clan master of the Haoran Sword Clan and become a hegemon of the human race.
Although she was also an innate spirit body, she was an innate wood spirit body. In the eyes of those old guys, she was far less important than her disciple.
However, she was aloof in nature, and did not bother to compete with her disciple.
According to her original plan, her disciple would understand the importance of having great strength and realize her previous mistakes. She would then forget about romance and go back with her to cultivate well.
If all else fails, she would become the villain and cause them to break up.
However, to her surprise…
The person her disciple was in love with was extraordinary!
Not only did he save her disciple ahead of herself, he also took on the challenge of fighting the elite demons.
Now, her disciple would probably never be able to let it go.
She couldn’t break them up, as they were both elites.
‘Our plans can never keep up with change. Creation is always pulling a prank on us…’
The Haoran Sword Clan’s Saintess was suddenly at a loss for how to handle such matters.
In the beginning, she allowed the demon elites to make things hard for Xia Xishuang, as they wished, because she wanted to use them to make Xia Xishuang forget all her feelings for Chen Chen. She wanted her to build a firm heart, but her plans seemed to have gone awry.
That kid even announced in public that her disciple was his Dao partner.
It seemed like she had brought them together, which was a huge sin in her opinion.
Chen Chen looked at the crowd of demons above, pointed his sword at the sky, and yelled in a deep voice. “Who else?!”
The demons were silent.
The Nine-Tailed Fox, who was at the peak of the Nascent Soul realm, was no match for the human cultivator below. Unless there were dozens of them today, they would never be conquered by the human cultivators.
However, the power of the human cultivator’s golden thunderbolt was really shocking. Even if he was defeated, dozens of demons would probably be severely injured, if they didn’t die of course.
By then, this human cultivator would be the one to gain fame.
Thinking of this, many demons began to think of retreating.
Feng Yu hollered unrelentingly, “Human cultivator, what is your name?!”
Chen Chen glanced at him, then looked at the demons above him. He yelled out loud, “Remember, my name is Chen Chen, and I’m Xia Xishuang’s Dao partner. From now on, come at me if you have anything against her!”
“Chen Chen, very good. I’ll remember your name! Just you wait!
“I didn’t expect so many fellow demons to come today, but unfortunately, I despise you for attacking someone you outnumbered. Goodbye!
“Chen Chen, you just fought two battles, and I don’t take advantage of others! Bye!”
The demon elites left after issuing threats. Seeing that they couldn’t fight anymore, they left in a gentlemanly manner.
“What a lousy elite! Psht! Just a bunch of losers!”
When Chen Chen saw this scene, he cursed softly, and could not help but question the system in his head.
“System, who is the strongest person within a hundred-meter radius?”
“The Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan, who is 99 meters above your head, Host.”
Hearing this answer, the disdain on Chen Chen’s face instantly froze, and a layer of cold sweat dripped from his forehead.
However, in the end, he forced himself to play it cool and feign ignorance.
After he had sorted out his emotions, Chen Chen turned around and looked at Xia Xishuang, who was in the Tianyun Clan’s formation.
Their expressions were very indifferent, but there was love hidden deep within their eyes.
The people around Xia Xishuang could not help but sigh when they saw that.
‘It’s really tough being single…’
After putting away the Omni Divine Blade, Chen Chen walked towards Xia Xishuang.
At this moment, Xia Xishuang had already taken some healing pills that made her face rosy.
Looking at Chen Chen, who was in front of her, she said softly, “Chen Chen… Was what you said… True?”
She had many questions in her mind, such as why Chen Chen had such a strong physique and why his black umbrella turned into the Frosty White sword. She also wanted to know about his innate spirit body.
However, at this moment, these no longer mattered, as there was only one question in her mind.
Chen Chen did not say anything. Instead, he reached his hand out to pull Xia Xishuang into his arms.
Of course, he knew that Xia Xishuang was talking about them being a Dao couple.
After staying silent for a long time, he said gently, “As long as you’re willing, we’ll make it real. Xishuang, you have no idea how heartbroken and helpless I felt when I learned that you were in danger. In that moment of despair, I knew that you were the one I’ve been waiting for all my life.”
Unlike Chen Chen, Xia Xishuang wasn’t that good with her words. She merely blushed and said with her head lowered, “Of course I’m willing…”
“Ahem! I have to continue with my cultivation! Bye!”
“I’m going back to fetch some water!”
“Xiao Wuyou, look at you! You can’t compare to your disciple at all! You’re such a fool!”
Everyone scattered in a moment.
They couldn’t help it; it was really too unsettling for them!
They didn’t spare a thought for the rest of them! Did they care to notice if there were any innocent onlookers around them before saying such mushy words?
What if they hurt others?
“Chen Chen, my parents died when I was a child, but I still have my Master. I have to gain her approval before we can go ahead with this. What do you think?”
Xia Xishuang thought about it and asked Chen Chen that question, feeling a little embarrassed.
Chen Chen’s expression suddenly became serious after he heard her question. Then, he said loudly, “Of course. Your master will always be like a parent to you! It’s only a matter of time before I go to see your master. I heard that the Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan is open-minded, kindhearted, and famous…”
After praising her exaggeratedly for a long time,Chen Chen finally concluded, “I think she won’t stop us.”
Seeing how understanding Chen Chen was, Xiao Xishuang could not help but be overjoyed while becoming more and more fond of Chen Chen.
The Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan, who was in the sky, nodded slightly, then murmured, “This kid is not bad. He has good judgment. It’s no wonder Xishuang likes him… If that man had such good judgment back then, I wouldn’t have…”
Thinking of this, the gaze of the Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan turned gloomy.
Having been away from each other for a long time, there were countless things Chen Chen and Xia Xishuang had to say to each other.
Without hiding anything, Chen Chen told her everything about his ambush in the State of Zhou Demon Clan and becoming a part of the body refinement division for the sake of the Tianyun Clan.
Xia Xishuang felt extremely emotional while hearing his recounting of the tale, feeling that Chen Chen had a very hard time making it this far.
She felt that if she was born in a mortal village, she could never do better than Chen Chen now.
‘The person I fancy… Is indeed a rare talent. He’s so flawless. I- I feel like I’m not worthy of him.’
While thinking about it, Xia Xishuang suddenly developed an inferiority complex.
She had been cultivating in the Haoran Sword Clan since she was a child and she was only at the Nascent Soul realm. She was clueless in other aspects, and hence, she could not help but feel guilty.
At this point, she hesitated for a while before taking out a sword from her storage ring.
It was the Breaking Dawn Sword.
“Since you and I have decided to become a couple, we should have a token of love and a memento. Breaking Dawn Sword has been with me for 17 years, and although it has been damaged, the scabbard is intact, and its soul hasn’t scattered yet. If I sensed correctly, your sword has lost its soul… So, I’d like to give the Breaking Dawn Sword to you.
“It’s only right for me to give my beloved item to a person I love… I hope you won’t turn me down.”
Seeing this, Chen Chen’s gaze became extremely complex while thinking to himself that he had to be as nice as he could to her.
The Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan was infuriated.
‘She gave her personal treasure away just like that! Why is my disciple such a wastrel?’
Even if the Breaking Dawn Sword had already been destroyed, its sheath, which was made of divine wood, was still there, and if she nurtured it for another 18 years, she would get a divine sword.
Eighteen years was not considered to be a very long time for an immortal cultivator.
She even wondered if Xia Xishuang would give birth to Chen Chen’s child if they continued to stay together for a few more days.
‘What a silly child!’ the Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan cursed.
Chen Chen took the Breaking Dawn Sword, looking at it closely before putting it away with care.
Seeing that Chen Chen did not refuse, Xia Xishuang was relieved.
However, after giving it to him, she felt a little flustered, because there was nothing precious she could give to him in the future.
After Chen Chen put away the Breaking Dawn Sword, he looked at the beautiful woman in front of him, who was as ethereal as a fairy. A piece of ethereal metal then appeared in his hand.
“Xishuang, your personal treasure was destroyed, so use this to recreate a new sword. I hope this sword will always be by your side and weather all storms for you, just like I do.”
Looking at the shimmering metal in Chen Chen’s hand, Xia Xishuang felt that it was extremely precious. It even triggered the special senses of her innate golden spirit body.
“Chen Chen, what’s this…”
Xia Xishuang did not recognize it, but the Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan, who was in the sky, saw the metal and her expression changed.
She thought to herself, ‘This is… Heavenly Divine Gold!’
