It was as if Chu Liuyue was hit in the head with a wooden stick as her entire person became stunned. Only people with the Tianling royal family bloodline can come in? Then… How did I come in? Even though I am Shangguan Yue in soul, my physical body has become Chu Liuyue. Thus, we definitely don’t have the same bloodline. I clearly remember that the golden fire directly appeared on the door. What happened then…?
Suddenly, she was shocked. It’s the black pyramid! Back then, I didn’t actually do anything. The black pyramid flew out itself; then, the door opened. There was also that strange connection…
From start to end, the black pyramid directed everything. Chu Liuyue was instantly confused. The black pyramid is Country Yao Chen’s item, so why is it related to the Tianling Dynasty?
There seemed to be mist in front of her, and she couldn’t clearly see what was happening.
“I… I don’t know either,” Chu Liuyue muttered to herself.
Shangguan Jing looked at her expression and confirmed that she didn’t know anything before he smiled slightly. “You have quite a few treasures with you, and one of them seems to be related to the Tianling Dynasty.”
Chu Liuyue paused. “You know?”
“This is my territory. Of course, nobody knows better than me about how you came in.” Shangguan Jing smiled and shook his head. This girl looks pretty smart, and she has good talent and capabilities, but why is she a little muddled?
He lifted his finger, and the black pyramid in Chu Liuyue’s body immediately flew out.
“Senior—” Chu Liuyue’s heart tightened, but she swallowed her remaining words when she thought that her ancestor might be able to see the secret within.
Shangguan Jing raised his hand and was about to take the black pyramid when a hidden yet strong suppression suddenly exploded from it.
“Hm?” Shangguan Jing paused in his actions. “The seal on top…”
This seal is very powerful—even I can’t solve it. He focused on it and looked up seriously. At first glance, this black pyramid doesn’t look special at all. But when I was near it, I could feel the strong aura within the seal. Let alone the girl in front, but there might not even be a person in the entire Tianling Dynasty who has such capabilities!
“Do you know who set this seal?” He looked at Chu Liuyue, and his expression was rather stern.
Chu Liuyue vaguely noticed something as she nodded and shook her head. “I only heard that person’s voice, and I’ve never seen him before. Is there something wrong with this seal…?”
Shangguan Jing kept quiet. Actually, he could feel a very familiar aura within the black pyramid, but this seal blocked him from investigating further.
He really didn’t know why the other party would waste such effort to set this seal.
This girl could probably come in because of this.
“The person who set this seal… is extremely strong,” said Shangguan Jing slowly.
Chu Liuyue nodded in acknowledgment. I have no doubts about this, but to be able to make the ancestor say this… He must be even stronger than I had imagined!
Shangguan Yue pushed his palm, and the black pyramid flew back to Chu Liuyue.
She scrutinized it and didn’t see anything wrong.
“You’re quite young, but you have a lot of fateful treasures,” said Shangguan Jing emotionally. No matter if it’s the mysterious and strong objects that she has or this mysterious and strong warrior she met… All the luck that others might not have their entire lives, she has them all in her teens.
“You must keep this well,” said Shangguan Jing seriously all of a sudden.
Chu Liuyue nodded in confusion.
“Since you could come in here, it means that we are fated. I originally planned to leave this Long Yuan Sword for them… But now, I think it’s better if I give it to you.”
The Tianling royal family is so messed up now. With this Long Yuan Sword, it might even aid their unruliness.
“S-senior, you mean… But this Long Yuan Sword is—” Chu Liuyue was slightly stunned. The Long Yuan Sword should be given to those with the Tianling royal family bloodline. I’m just an outsider now, yet the ancestor is planning to do this?!
Shangguan Jing suddenly smiled. “You girl, you clearly guessed my identity long ago, so why are you pretending you don’t know? This Long Yuan Sword is originally mine, so I can give it to whoever I want.”
“Besides, I felt very close for some reason once I saw you… It’s probably because of fate?” He crossed his arms and looked at Chu Liuyue. If it isn’t because I really like this girl, I wouldn’t have talked to her for so long.
Chu Liuyue hesitated for quite some time. It’s definitely untrue if I say that I don’t want the Long Yuan Sword, but… What kind of identity should I accept the sword with?
As if seeing Chu Liuyue’s conflicted feelings, Shangguan Jing waved his hands, smiled, and said, “You don’t have to worry about others because… the Long Yuan Sword chose you too!”
Chu Liuyue raised her eyes in shock. “What?”
Shangguan Jing smiled and shook his head. “If not, why do you think the Long Yuan Sword’s last bolt hasn’t landed yet?”
It was waiting for her!
There seemed to be molten lava rolling around Chu Liuyue’s stomach, causing her entire body to tremble slightly.
She suddenly knelt on the floor and sincerely bowed. “Junior… Chu Liuyue kneels and thanks… Ancestor!”
Her head lowered and hit the ice-cold marble floor of the palace.
A teardrop silently landed.
A large sound was suddenly heard.
The few people waiting outside the heavenly pit looked up together.
The blazing sun in the sky suddenly dropped and rushed toward the Long Yuan Sword.
The last bolt of lightning came down with the sound.
