Hearing Qin Wushuang's answer, Qin Lianshan revealed a pleased smile as he kept nodding: "Wushuang, since we are offspring of the Qin clan, regardless of whether the Qin clan at the Heavenly Emperor Mountain is prospering, or in ruins, it's still the Qin clan. It will always be true that family ties are closer than social relations."
"Father, rest assured, I understand the principles." He put the three items inside his robes.
Qin Lianshan walked over and solemnly handed that giant spear to Qin Wushuang: "Wushuang, this ancestral spear has been passed down from generations. Now, it's finally being passed into your hands since you have finally unlocked the mechanism of the Qin ancestors. This spear belongs to you. I hope you can use it well and use our legacy spear to create a new world!"
This instruction was full of a father's most sincere hopes. He had entrusted his feelings and hopes for his son to be successful as a dragon.
Qin Wushuang solemnly accepted it and said seriously: "Father, don't worry, I will not bring shame to the spear of our ancestors! I will never shame our ancestor's reputation."
He was now determined to head to the Heavenly Emperor Mountain and learn the exact situation of the Qin headquarters. If it was a trustful and a genuine organization, he would not be against it. With the Stargaze as an example, Qin Wushuang had developed an extreme sense of belonging.
If the Qin headquarters was as peaceful and amiable as the Stargaze Palace, how could he refuse them?
After activating the mechanism, the matter of the Qin ancestor's secret instructions had been fulfilled. The father and son left the ancestral house after a few more prayers.
Qin Wushuang stayed another dozen or so days at the Royal Mansion and enjoyed his reunion with his family. Finally, he started to head back.
After bidding goodbye to the Royal Mansion, Qin Wushuang brought the ancestral spear with him on his journey back to the Stargaze Palace. On this day, he decided to visit that Nine Raven Temple after paying a visit to the Palace Masters.
Suddenly, in the middle of his meeting with the Head Palace Masters and the others, Qin Wushuang remembered something and took out that sealed talisman he had acquired from Zuo Tianci. He said: "Head Palace Master, Teacher, last time I managed to seize this sealed talisman during the battle with Zuo Tianci. I forgot to hand in this object after leaving in a hurry. Please check it."
Zhuo Buqun laughed: "Wushuang, this is your spoils of war and as such, it belongs to you. No need to give to us."
"Yes, Wushuang, just keep it and use it." Tan Zhongchi also encouraged him to keep it.
Qin Wushuang laughed carefreely: "Teachers, firstly, I don't know how to use this sealed spiritual talisman, thus I don't need it. I already have Lone and Bao Bao, these two great spiritual beasts. I think it's more appropriate to keep this sealed spiritual beast inside the sect. it could be used in an emergency."
Zhuo Buqun and Tan Zhongchi exchanged a glance and nodded: "In that case, we will not hold back and take it."
Qin Wushuang immediately said: "I am a disciple of the Stargaze Palace, even if it's something I acquired from the battlefield, it's reasonable for me to hand it over as a contribution to the sect."
Tan Zhongchi laughed: "Head Palace Master, it's rare for Wushuang to hold such sentiments. We should stop putting on a facade and just accept it."
Everyone erupted into laughter and the atmosphere became extremely rich. Then, Tan Zhongchi asked again: "Wushuang, when do you plan to head to the Nine Raven Temple?"
Qin Wushuang said: "After this meeting with you all, I had planned to leave."
"Great!" Tan Zhongchi rubbed his palms, "Wushuang, no need to be in a rush. We are not in a hurry to begin the Endless Eastern Sea exploration. We still haven't made the new exploration plans. Nor have we decided on how to divvy the spots among the eastern countries, or how to compete for the spots, we still need to draw up new rules. The previous pact between the three Empires have lost all meaning with the annihilation of the Archaic Mysteries sect."
"Yes, Wushuang, for this trip, you should treat it as a learning experience to broaden your horizons. There is no rush. If you have the time and energy, you should also travel to the Sky Travel Empire." Zhuo Buqun also encouraged him.
Qin Wushuang said: "Teachers, when I head to the Nine Raven Temple, perhaps I will also enter the Xuan Yuan Mound to do some exploration. If there are any turbulent reactions, I must humbly ask for forgiveness."
"Exploring the Xuan Yuan Mound?" Tan Zhongchi was shocked, "Wushuang, the Xuan Yuan Mound is located in the Forbidden Spiritual Zones. Although it is not as dangerous as the Endless Eastern Sea in general, it is filled with elite warriors. There are many different races and different sects. If you take one wrong step, you might end up falling into the endless eternal abyss. If you go there…"
Qin Wushuang told them the truth: "Teacher, recently, I have acquired some secret ancestral instructions. The Qin family is related to the Qin clan in the Heavenly Emperor Mountain in the Xuan Yuan Mound. I want to go to that Heavenly Emperor Mountain to see them, regardless of it being true or not, to realize my ancestor's wish."
"Xuan Yuan Mound, Heavenly Emperor Mountain?" Inwardly, Zhuo Buqun smacked his tongue. Of course, he had heard this name. The Qin clan of the Heavenly Emperor Mountain was the most famous and major sect in the Xuan Yuan Mound!
Could it be that with Qin Wushuang's exceptional talent, he was truly related to the bloodline of the Heavenly Emperor Qin Clan? This was indeed, an expected good news!
"Wushuang, is this information reliable?" Naturally, Tan Zhongchi could recognize the gains and losses within this news as he spoke with a somewhat thrilled tone.
"Teacher, the news is totally true and reliable. I am going to verify it."
"Excellent!" Tan Zhongchi nodded heavily and exchanged glances with Zhuo Buqun. They shared a mutual understanding as joyful light flowed from their eyes.
For sure, this was an expected piece of good news. If Qin Wushuang was truly related to the Qin clan in the Heavenly Emperor Mountain, wouldn't it be the same as finding a strong and powerful backer for the Stargaze Palace?
Although the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect was powerful, in the Xuan Yuan Mound, they would not be stronger than the Qin of the Heavenly Emperor Mountain!
As the name itself had revealed, the Heavenly Emperor Mountain was the place where the Holy Emperor of the Xuan Yuan Mound resided. What did the title of Holy Emperor represent? It meant that he was the highest official governing presence in the Xuan Yuan Mound!
Although being the highest official did not mean the strongest, certainly, the sect that could climb to the position of Holy Emperor of the Xuan Yuan Mound could call the wind and summon the rain.
And the Qin clan had once been in that position!
To reign over the Xuan Yuan Mound, one must reign in the Heavenly Emperor Mountain. This was a known fact of the Xuan Yuan Mound.
"Wushuang, your teacher and I completely support you in your visit. Only, the trip to Xuan Yuan Mound is filled with danger and its landscape is extremely vast and stretches over a hundred thousand of miles. I am afraid that ten of the largest human countries put together is still not as big as the Xuan Yuan Mound. Thus, you must be careful." Zhuo Buqun repeatedly advised him.
Qin Wushuang said: "Head Palace Master, I will be careful."
"Yes, Wushuang, you take care!"
Qin Wushuang returned to the Green Cloud Palace after bidding goodbye to the Head Palace Masters and the others. He packed lightly and recounted his things. For many of the Upper Sky objects, he had left them behind at the Heavenly Royal Mansion and gave them to his father to put into the treasury.
Among these objects, there were fix or six Upper Sky weapons, such as the snake-shaped soft whip he had used before he became famous, a few sets of armors, and a few basic pills.
For these things, he had acquired a small portion of them through trade. He had gotten most of them after killing his enemies. For instance, he had acquired some things from killing that man in black, Devil Boy, Zhang Baidang, Zhu Dazhong. Next, he had annihilated the Archaic Mysteries sect and Zuo Tianci.
Now, his travelling bag was much lighter.
Regarding his current weapons, there were four pieces. These were the Graceful Spiritual Bow, the Violet Sun Sword, the Fury Dragon Soul, and the giant ancestral spear.
Qin Wushuang had kept all the spiritual talismans. For instance, he had kept all the Wind Walk talismans from the Three Eastern Empires Friendly Competition and the three spiritual talisman he'd received after killing Zhu Dazhong.
Regarding the secret technique books, he'd brought with him the Beast Catalogue, the Rare Book of Training Beasts, and a book of containing secret information regarding each continent, plus ten scrolls of maps detailing the Xuan Yuan Mound.
In terms of pills, besides the few Nine Reversal Sun Pills he had remaining, he only kept those Initial Stage pills that Shakyamuni Li Huo had made for him. He did not use the ten-ordinary quality Initial Stage pills. Instead, he had kept one Supreme Quality Initial Stage pills for Xiao Guan.
Besides these goods, he had a set of Void Martial Stage armor he had acquired from the Third Circle of the Seven Deadly Formation Arrays. Of course, he wore it since it was of great importance to him.
Additionally, he had the three pieces of inheritance left behind by the Qin ancestors. Plus, he had the loot from killing that man in black. On was a jade plate on which was carved the words 'Deep Black.' The other one was a sheep scroll. Although it appeared incomplete, it also seemed to be a map.
These were Qin Wushuang's current possessions. All the other weapons, armors, and pills, Qin Wushuang had left it to the Heavenly Royal Mansion.
These properties was also valuable. By leaving it with the Heavenly Royal Mansion, it had increased their strength vividly.
It was not the first time Qin Wushuang had gone to visit the Nine Raven Empire. This time, his feelings were completely different than last time's. Previously, a dark cloud had loomed over his mind as he was urgently trying to save his teacher.
Currently, he was much more relaxed since he was carrying the attitude of a guest out travelling. Qin Wushuang used the Purple Flame Electric beast as a ride and Bao Bao followed them closely as they headed towards the Nine Raven Empire at a rapid speed.
In about half a month, Qin Wushuang once again arrived at the imperial capital of the Nine Raven Empire. Qin Wushuang had good memories regarding this Nine Raven Empire.
Back then, he had come here full of sadness and depression. Yet, he had left the Nine Raven Empire with a full harvest. Thus, he felt positive feelings toward the Nine Raven Empire.
With that Nine Raven National Command Plate, of course, Qin Wushuang had travelled and received a warm treatment. Enjoying all the VIP treatment, he had truly felt like he was being received as if he were at home.
When he arrived at the branch of the Nine Raven Temple in the imperial capital, it was still that elder from last time who received him. Naturally, that elder was extremely surprised when he took Qin Wushuang's Nine Raven National Command Plate. He immediately ushered Qin Wushuang to the VIP room: "Could you be that famous Young Master Qin Wushuang?"
Qin Wushuang smiled as he courteously replied: "I trust you have been well since last we met."
That elder gave a long sigh: "Last time, I did not recognize the jewel with my eyes. Until after your name has spread across the world, I have realized and understand how I have missed receiving a genius. Today, I didn't expect that I would have the fortune of witnessing your true appearance. My Head Divinity Chief has ordered that if Young Master Qin Wushuang comes to visit, he must be received with the highest treatment."
Qin Wushuang immediately said: "Please don't inconvenience yourself. I only came here to pay a visit to the Divinity Chiefs of the Nine Raven Temple. As for the treatment, these are all too convoluted and over-elaborate. Everything should just be simple. I would not be used to it if it were too extravagant."
"Ok, the Head Divinity Chief said that everything should be arranged as Young Master Wushuang desires."
That elder was extremely flexible as he laughed: "Young Master Wushuang, please follow me. I will take you to the Nine Raven Abyss!"
The Nine Raven Temple was located on the nine deep islands of the Nine Raven Abyss. The terrain was extremely treacherous and concealed. If an outside tried to enter the Nine Raven Abyss without a guide, most likely they would not even be able to find the door of the temple.
