Book 6 Chapter 48 The Three Foreign Dignitaries
God of Heaven’s gentle voice resonated in the great hall. However, the eight Godly General all stared at the God of Heaven in shock. They couldn't believe that the God of Heaven would actually say something like this.
“The Ninth Godly General?”
Teng Qingshan was also surprised as he looked at the God of Heaven. The God of Heaven's small eyes seemed like a black crystal jade, so dark that no one could guess what he was thinking. When the God of Heaven saw Teng Qingshan hesitating, he continued saying, “Huhe, you belong to no sect, so joining the God of Heaven Mountain only brings you benefits!”
At this moment, Li Jun, who was at the side, also smiled.
She was the Goddess of the God of Heaven Mountain and also hoped that Teng Qingshan could be of the same sect as her. Li Jun then stared at Teng Qingshan, who was beside her.
“God of Heaven!” Teng Qingshan said respectfully, “Although I belong to no sect, I have a teacher!”
In the bottom of his heart, Teng Qingshan didn’t want to join the God of Heaven Mountain. Although he had left the Gui Yuan Sect, it was impossible for him to forget his teacher Zhuge Yuanhong, Zhuge Yun, Teng Qinghu, and the others. He had already marked himself with the symbol of the Gui Yuan Sect!
“Teacher?” The God of Heaven was not surprised at all. He still spoke with a smile, “As you attained such achievement, it would be weird if you didn’t have a teacher! Don’t worry. I didn’t ask you to recognize someone as your teacher, I only asked you to join the God of Heaven Mountain! Now, although the Eight Godly Generals of the God of Heaven Mountain are all my disciples, I won’t force you to be my disciple if you joined! I cultivate Tantra, while it is obvious that your method of cultivation is different. Plus, you have reached the Golden Dan of the Innate Realm…...Since you have cultivated to this stage, It is impossible to change. It would be impossible for me to ask you to change your cultivation method to Tantra!”
The God of Heaven cast a meaningful glance at the First Godly General Borileimu.
Borileimu has been with the God of Heaven the longest, so he immediately understood what the God of Heaven meant. He looked at Teng Qingshan and said with a laugh, “Brother Huhe, Teacher is not asking you to be his disciple. Instead, he is only asking you to take the position of Godly General! If you were the Godly General, it would give you lots of advantages when you travel the world! Also, you and I will be able to compete more often in the future!”
“Haha, the Ninth Godly General.” The Fifth Godly General Eriqier smiled and said, “Brother Huhe, if you really became the Ninth Godly General, then the God of Heaven Mountain will have nine Godly Generals. And you will be the strongest Godly Generals!
When Borileimu heard, he intentionally smiled bitterly and said, “Junior Martial Brother, you are right. If Brother Huhe became the Ninth Godly General, the most powerful Godly General would be him!”
The titles of the Godly Generals were decided based on the time they joined, which had nothing to do with their strength.
“Huhe!” The God of Heaven stared at Teng Qingshan.
The entire great hall became quiet. Whether it was the Eighth Godly General, the God of heaven, or Li Jun, they all looked at Teng Qingshan. Everyone was hoping that he would join the God of Heaven Mountain!
“I am afraid I have failed to meet the God of Heaven and the seniors’ expectation!”
Teng Qingshan bowed and said sincerely, “To be honest, I will be sailing the seas soon! I will venture the great seas and cultivate with all my effort! I won’t be staying on the God of Heaven Mountain!”
“If you became the Godly General, no one will stop you from sailing the seas!” The God of Heaven smiled.
Teng Qingshan shook his head as he explained with respectful eyes, “Sailing the seas and cultivating is just a process of my tough training. My whole life, I desired to enter the Emptiness Realm. When I reach the Emptiness Realm, I will establish my own sect and teach the disciples what I had experienced and comprehended! This is my dream! Therefore, it is impossible for me to join other sects!”
“Establish a sect?”
The eight Godly Generals were shocked. They then looked towards the God of Heaven!
What kind of status did the God of Heaven possess?
He was an Emptiness Realm Expert! The peerless existence in this Great Prairie! Today, the God of Heaven repeatedly invited Teng Qingshan with a smile on his face, but Teng Qingshan rejected again and again! They were worried that….their teacher, the God of Heaven, would feel anger due to the embarrassment.
“If you can’t be on my side, then you shall be my enemy!” There were many people with such thoughts.
“Big Brother Huhe!” Li Jun hastily prompted in a soft voice.
Teng Qingshan looked up at the God of Heaven.
The smile on the God of Heaven’s face seemed to have frozen. The pair of small eyes that was staring at Teng Qingshan seemed very calm.
“Huhe!” The God of Heaven’s voice suddenly became very deep as it resonated in the great hall.
“God of Heaven.” Teng Qingshan spoke with a very humble attitude.
The God of Heaven opened his mouth slowly and said, “Reach the Emptiness Realm? With your aptitude and talent, as long as you are diligent, I believe that you will reach the Emptiness Realm! Since you wanted to establish a sect…..I, as the God of Heaven, will give you a hand! Through your relationship with Lady Li Jun, you should know about the forces behind the God of Heaven Mountain!”
Teng Qingshan froze.
Although Li Jun never explained the details, Teng Qingshan knew….that the God of Heaven Mountain was just a branch of a powerful and terrifying dark force.
“These disciples of mine and Lady Li Jun all know.” The God of Heaven said slowly, “In the land of the Nine Prefectures, there is a celestial palace called the Heavenly God Palace! Besides the Empress, the Gods of Heaven possess the highest status in this Heavenly God Palace! And I am one of the Gods of Heaven!”
When Teng Qingshan heard, he felt his heart quiver in shock!
Gods of Heaven? Emptiness Realm Expert? One of them?
“No wonder Little Jun told me that the force of the sect she was in could be compared with Mani Temple!” Teng Qingshan immediately understood that this powerful force had not just one Emptiness Realm Expert!
“Besides the Gods of Heaven in the Heavenly God Palace, there are also Foreign Dignitaries!”
The God of Heaven stared at Teng Qingshan and said, “The Foreign Dignitaries of the Heavenly God Palace are second to the Gods of Heaven. However, the Foreign Dignitaries and the Heavenly God Palace only help each other. The Foreign Dignitaries are not completely under the control of the Heavenly God Palace! The Foreign Dignitaries could be sovereigns of their own sects. Since the Foreign Dignitaries are people who can receive help from the Heavenly God Palace while also remaining independent of the Heavenly God Palace….it is very rare and difficult to become a Foreign Dignitaries!”
“Now, the Heavenly God Palace has a total of two Foreign Dignitaries!”
The God of Heaven’s words shocked Teng Qingshan.
Actually, Teng Qingshan understood….that if a world had light, it would have darkness. Since there were the Eight Supreme Sects in the light, it wasn’t impossible for a powerful force to hide within the darkness! It was just that the greatness of this force had astonished Teng Qingshan!
“Regarding these two Foreign Dignitaries, one is an Emptiness Realm Martial Ancestor from the East Sea! As for the other Foreign Dignitary, he is the number one expert from the many western kingdoms and is secretly in control of a few great kingdoms. Although he is only a Golden Dan innate expert, in terms of strength, he could definitely be ranked within the top three of the 《Heavenly Ranking》!” The God of Heaven was not hiding anything.
When Teng Qingshan heard, he gasped in surprise!
One of the two Foreign Dignitaries was an Emptiness Realm Expert from the East Sea, while the other was the number one expert of the Western Regions. As both of them were not in the Nine Prefectures, their names were naturally not listed in the 《Heavenly Ranking》.
“The Foreign Dignitaries and the Heavenly God Palace are connected by a series of alliances that entails mutual support It is not a relationship where one is superior or subordinate!”
“As a God of Heaven, I have only one chance to choose a Foreign Dignitary!” The God of Heaven stared at Teng Qingshan as he said, “Huhe, will you be the Foreign Dignitary of the Heavenly God Palace!”
Teng Qingshan held his breath when he heard this.
The God of Heaven valued him greatly! The Heavenly God Palace only had a total of two Official Dignitaries, and each Official Dignitary was definitely an ambitious and ruthless figure! The Ancestor of the East Sea, the King of the Western Regions! As for the third? Would it be him, Teng Qingshan?
“Big Brother Huhe.” Li Jun immediately whispered, “A Foreign Dignitary’s authority is second only to the God of Heaven with a status even higher than the Core Disciples and even the Godly Generals! You can agree to this.” The Eight Godly Generals at the side all looked at Teng Qingshan with envious eyes.
However, they were not jealous!
Teng Qingshan had convinced them with his powerful strength! Plus, it was obvious that Teng Qingshan wasn’t old! Although many innate experts did not look old, one could determine their age through the hair on their temples and through their aura. Although Zhao Danchen and Borileimu did not look old, Zhao Danchen’s hair was silvery white, while Borileimu had white temple hairs.
Those who were about to reach the end of their lifespan would all be enveloped by a faint death aura! The complete opposite of the aura of vigor that young men possessed. It might sound unreal, but this death aura could be detected by innate experts.
“Thank the God of Heaven for having such high regard for me.” Teng Qingshan bowed and said, “As for the position of the Foreign Dignitary... If I ever establish a sect or join any other sect, the Heavenly God Palace won’t stop me, right?”
The God of Heaven nodded with a smile, “An Official Dignitary is like a guest!”
Teng Qingshan knew clearly of how terrifying it was for such a powerful force to be hidden in the land of the Nine Prefectures and kept a secret from the world. If he became friend with a shadow force like this, it would only bring benefits to him in the future!
“I am really very grateful for receiving such high regards. I accept the position of Foreign Dignitary.” Teng Qingshan nodded in response.
The smile on the God of Heaven’s face became even brighter.
The God of Heaven was an old fellow who had lived for over four hundred years! He established the God of Heaven Mountain by himself, thus, how excellent would his judgement be? He had already determined the young man’s potential….This young man would definitely be an Emptiness Realm Expert in the future! To the Heavenly God Palace, having another Emptiness Realm Expert as a Foreign Dignitary, an ally and a friend, would only bring benefits. ……
Laughter resounded in the great hall of the God of Heaven Tower as everyone congratulated Teng Qingshan!
Honored as the Foreign Dignitary!
Through this, one could see how the God of Heaven valued Teng Qingshan since the God of Heaven himself had only one chance to choose a Foreign Dignitary.
“Huhe!” The God of Heaven took out a green token.
“This is a Foreign Dignitary’s token!” The God of Heaven threw the token towards Teng Qingshan as he spoke. An invisible hand lifted the token, which then floated towards Teng Qingshan and stopped in front of him.
Teng Qingshan then stretched out his hand and grabbed the token.
He scrutinized the Foreign Dignitary Token and saw that it was completely green and seemed to be made of jade. As Teng Qingshan held the token in his hand, he could feel warmth transmitting into his body, giving him a refreshing sensation.
“On an island on the East Sea lies Jade Mountain. There, a Heart of Jade nurtured within a vein of chalcedony was extracted, and a sliver of it was carved into this Foreign Dignitary Token! If one wears it for a long time, it would open up the meridians and nurture the Spirit!” The God of Heaven smiled and continued saying, “Even if an ordinary individual wore it, it wouldn’t be hard for him to open up all his meridians!”
Teng Qingshan stared at the token in his hand, shocked by what he had heard.
Jade Mountain? Heart of Jade nurtured by the chalcedony?
“If one drinks a sip of Millennium Chalcedony, it would open up the meridians of the entire body! This Heart of Jade that was nurtured by chalcedony would probably have an even more shocking effect. The Heavenly God Palace is indeed wealthy!” Teng Qingshan was really astonished. Compared to the Heavenly God Palace, the Gui Yuan Sect that he had joined was a hundred times more inferior!
At the side, Li Jun also winked towards Teng Qingshan.
Teng Qingshan smiled.
If he became the Foreign Dignitary of the Heavenly God Palace, when he returned from the Northern Sea Continent to the land of the Nine Prefectures, the aid of the shadow forces of the Heavenly God Palace would be very beneficial when he helped the Gui Yuan Sect!
“Huhe is now the Foreign Dignitary of the Heavenly God Palace! It is done! Everyone, about the issue regarding the Heavenly Rock Island which I discussed with you all after I came out of seclusion, now is the time to take action!”
