After the Lifelong Realmlord departed, Beiming Youhuang remained where she was, staring at the boundless star-filled sky. The night breeze gusted by, her long hair fluttered lightly as her entire being radiated a sense of loneliness.
"Youhuang." A voice suddenly rang out in her mind. Beiming Youhuang trembled a little as she took out her messaging crystal immediately.
Her hands were cold, she held onto the messaging crystal but she didn't know what to say. After that, a slight smile appeared on her face as she sent a strand of immortal sense into the crystal, "Congratulations!"
"You know about it already?" A voice filled with surprise transmitted back. Qin Wentian then continued, "Youhuang, where are you now?"
"I'm outside roaming the world, trying to increase my cultivation level. I messaged you because I heard about the news of you becoming the new Lifire Palace Lord." Beiming Youhuang lied.
"Qianyu told me that you are in the Lifelong Saint Hall and she would often see you there previously before she was freed."
"Mhm, that was before. But, I've already left there now." Beiming Youhuang replied in a light voice.
"Is it true?" Qin Wentian's voice was filled with doubt, ringing out in Beiming Youhuang's mind.
"Mhm." Beiming Youhuang replied. "In any case, my cultivation base is already at the peak-stage of the immortal emperor realm, there's no need for me to worry about you. Congratulations to you for finally being able to be together with Ye Qianyu after suffering so much. For you, she has suffered a lot. You have to treat her well."
Qin Wentian was silent for a few moments before he replied, "Mhm, I will. Youhuang you have to take care of yourself too. If there's anything you need my help with, you have to contact me and let me know alright?"
A gentle smile appeared in the frosty yet beautiful eyes of Beiming Youhuang. She didn't reply and kept her messaging crystal. She stared up at the stars, there is still around tens of years before the next Lifelong Grand Banquet. At that time, the Lifelong Realmlord would make the announcement to the entire world. If Qin Wentian learns of that then, how would he feel about it?
In the Lifire Palace, in a large and beautiful room, one would be able to see the lights formed of lifire as well as the entire magnificent scene of the Lifire City.
At this moment, Qin Wentian was standing before this window and staring at the horizons. He slowly placed down the messaging crystal in his hand. No more replies from Beiming Youhuang rang out in his mind. For some reason, he felt a little down. He didn't know why this was so. By rights, he should only feel happiness.
"What's wrong?" A gentle voice drifted over from behind. The moonlight that streamed in shone upon Ye Qianyu's figure. She who was in a red phoenix dress, exuded a sense of holiness. Her fair skin seemed to glow, resembling a goddess under the moonlight that caused the hearts of all men to stir.
"Youhuang says that she isn't in the Lifelong Saint Hall and has already gone out to temper herself." Qin Wentian glanced at Ye Qianyu as he spoke. Upon seeing how beautiful she was, he couldn't help but to take another look.
"She might have really left." Ye Qianyu spoke softly. After that, her eyes that were filled with love, gazed warmly at Qin Wentian. Her fair jade-like arms stretched out and wrapped themselves around Qin Wentian's neck as she smiled, "Is the relationship between you and her really so simple as a pair of apprentice siblings?"
Staring at Ye Qianyu's beautiful eyes, Qin Wentian replied, "If not?"
Ye Qianyu's mouth twitched before she gave a charming laugh. Her gaze turned more mesmerizing. Qin Wentian felt his blood surge as he stared at her flawless features that were inches away from him. From his angle, he could see her fair neck as well as her beautiful twin peaks below.
Upon seeing the heat in Qin Wentian's gaze, Ye Qianyu's smile widened. He stretched out his hand wanting to embrace her but Ye Qianyu easily slipped away with a twist. She giggled, "You want to eat me up before holding a wedding for me? Even if I cannot become the main empress, you can't be so biased, right?"
"Qianyu, it has been so many years. I want to make things up to you." Qin Wentian stared at her as he gently spoke. Ye Qianyu's beautiful eyes softened. Her limpid gaze that is akin to water, stared at him as she pouted, "How can you say such a shameless thing with such a straight face?"
"…" Qin Wentian's face was filled with black lines, he was speechless and didn't know what to reply.
"Let me dance a dance for you." Ye Qianyu gently spoke.
Qin Wentian's eyes brightened. He still remembered how alluring her dance was, capable of stunning everyone who saw it. He could still remember clearly even now. Was he going to witness that stunningly beautiful dance once again?
"Mhm." Qin Wentian nodded. Ye Qianyu's back faced the window, allowing the moonlight to gather on her. After that, her body began to move, transitioning from one pose to the next. She seemed extremely light and airy, her beautiful movements were filled with grace, causing those who saw it to be unable to move their eyes away.
This was especially so for Ye Qianyu's beauty and charm at this moment. Her skirt fluttered with each of her movements as her eyes conveyed her emotions for him. Qin Wentian had no way to describe the beauty of this moment. He sat down on the bed and silently admired her dance. Faintly, he felt that the best scenery of the world was none other than this.
He was completely immersed, it was only after a long time before he regained his senses. The dance steps gradually slowed as the goddess under the moonlight slowly walked towards him with that charming smile on her face.
Qin Wentian simply sat there unmoving as he stared at her.
Finally, Ye Qianyu walked to his side. She faced him directly with her arms over his shoulders as she sat on his thighs. This goddess under the moonlight was just inches away from him.
Tearing sounds rang out only to see the sexy red dress Ye Qianyu's was wearing suddenly transformed into petals that danced in the air. The petals enveloped both of them. A perfect figure appeared before Qin Wentian, causing his eyes to turn slightly red from lust. His heart pounded rapidly, he could no longer endure it. He stretched out trembling hands as his palms roamed around Ye Qianyu's figure.
A moan of ecstasy rang out when his hands brushed crossed her sensitive parts, causing his lust to burn even fiercer.
This was destined to be a night of craziness, a sleepless night.
The moon hung high up in the sky. Star light flashed, shining into the majestic bed chambers. Time continued to flow by and at dawn, when the first ray of sunlight streamed into the room, Qin Wentian opened his eyes and stared at the lithe figure lying in his embrace. He then glanced at her flawless features as he leaned in to kiss her forehead.
Ye Qianyu's eyelashes fluttered as she opened her eyes. Her eyes still seemed to be blurred but they gradually brightened after she felt the kiss on her forehead. She snuggled and leaned against Qin Wentian's body, her gaze filled with boundless warmth.
"It's time to get up." Qin Wentian softly spoke.
"No…" Ye Qianyu turned, with her back facing Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian laughed in an evil manner and pull the blanket off her, causing a scream to shatter the tranquil atmosphere. Qin Wentian continued laughing as he dressed. Ye Qianyu clutched the blanket around her but she soon dressed up as well as she went to freshen up.
After she was done, Qin Wentian had a look of puzzlement on his face when he stared at her. The Ye Qianyu today seemed to have a different demeanor. She was less charming and seemed more elegant with a touch of nobility mixed within.
"What are you looking at?" Ye Qianyu smiled charmingly at Qin Wentian.
"A demoness is still a demoness, your demonic charm is as radiant as ever." Qin Wentian laughed as he stared at her.
"Is that so? Ye Qianyu tied her hair up and sat up while tidying her clothes. The charming smile on her face vanished, replaced by a slight smile of regalness, like she was a empress that ruled over millions, exuding a sense of imposingness.
Qin Wentian stared dumbfoundedly. This woman was truly adapt at transforming herself, her demeanor was instantly different. Upon seeing the look on Qin Wentian's face, Ye Qianyu giggled and became her charming self once again. "Don't forget that I used to be the Palace Mistress of the Thousand Feathers Palace. Now, after becoming your woman, I will naturally be docile and charming towards you but when facing outsiders, even though I'm not yet the true empress of the Lifire Palace, I still have to look the part. If not, when the two other wives of yours came over and become the female lords of this place, wouldn't I be bullied by them to death?"
"…" Qin Wentian had a face filled with black lines. He suddenly thought about the scene where Qing`er and Qingcheng met with Ye Qianyu. For some reason, a bitter smile appeared on his face as anxiety filled his heart.
He was extremely clear about the personalities Qing`er and Qingcheng had. They would bully Ye Qianyu? It was more likely that they would be bullied instead. Seems like he had to spend more time in the future to properly guide this demoness, he mustn't allow her to bully Qing`er and Qingcheng.
"Let's go, the nine monarch, governors, protectors and the other major powers are still waiting for you. If you don't say anything, they most probably wouldn't be able to feel at ease and leave." Ye Qianyu laughed. Qin Wentian nodded. The two of them then continued walking out of their bed chambers and moved towards the great hall. There were no guards around here as this place was protected by formations instead.
At the banquet held in the great hall, the vast majority of people were still here.
When Ye Qianyu and Qin Wentian walked over, their expressions all turned solemn, the atmosphere was no longer as casual as before. Staring at the imposing Qin Wentian as well as the elegant Ye Qianyu, many silently mused that these two were truly a match made in heaven.
Qin Wentian had always exuded magnificence and Ye Qianyu had incomparable charm back then. She now had a hint of regalness in her manner, exuding nobility and elegance. There had already been a separate smaller throne arranged for her beside Qin Wentian's throne, allowing her to have a separate seat of her own.
"During these few days, has everyone enjoyed themselves to the fullest?" Qin Wentian smiled as he glanced at everyone.
"Palace lord's generosity in hosting the banquet allowed all of us to enjoy to the maximum." A monarch laughed.
"Mhm." Qin Wentian calmly nodded. "Right now, since I've taken over the Lifire Palace Lord's position, I naturally will have to properly govern and manage the vast stretch of territories under the Lifire Palace's name. The nine monarchs, you all have to do your best and assist me."
"Yes, Palace Lord. All of us will definitely strive to the utmost and spare no effort." The nine monarchs all bowed to express their loyalty. The stones in their hearts were finally placed down. Seems like Qin Wentian didn't intend to touch their positions. They were truly worried that Qin Wentian might replace them with his own trusted aides.
Qin Wentian nodded and continued, "In addition, many traitorous subordinates have died or were injured due to the battle back then. Many important positions in my Lifire Palace still lack personnel and I have to make some adjustments to that. Right now, I officially confer upon the Evil Emperor the title of a protector. He shall become one of the protectors of my Lifire Palace. Xu Li will take over the position of the northern governor."
"Yes, Palace Lord." Both the Evil Emperor and Xu Li bowed while the others remained silent. Right now, how would there be anyone else who dares to question Qin Wentian's decision? It was only natural that Qin Wentian wanted to nurture his own trusted aides.
After that, after another round of adjusting, all those bandits who had followed Ye Qianyu back then were all given important positions. Their eyes were filled with respect when they stared at Qin Wentian and Ye Qianyu, silently musing at how great the judgement of their previous palace mistress, Ye Qianyu, was. Back then, everyone didn't understand why was she willing to give up so many things for Qin Wentian. Now when they looked at the two of them on the throne, the scene was simply perfect.
"Mo Clan's Mo Fei, you will also become a protector of my Lifire Palace. As for Mo Junyi, you will take over one of the vice governor positions in the central city regions." Qin Wentian continued. "Are the two of you willing?"
"Many thanks Palace Lord." Mo Fei and Mo Junyi both gave their thanks. They glanced at Di Tian. Seems like the relationship between the Palace Lord and Vice Palace Lord was unexpectedly good.Comment (1) Shadow009

Qin Wentian continued to give orders, adjusting the important positions of the Lifire Palace. The people below all quietly listened. The atmosphere was completely silent save for Qin Wentian giving commands. Nobody dared to question him.
"Is the Jialan Clan here?" At this moment, Qin Wentian suddenly called out, causing the eyes of Jialan Yuntian to flash. Jialan Jiangshan has already left. Although he did personally come by to attend Qin Wentian's ascension that day, he had left soon after that. After all, he was an empyrean-level character, it was natural that he wouldn't mingle with these others at a banquet.
"Here." Jialan Yuntian stepped out and bowed.
"Are the members of the Jialan Clan willing to take up official positions of the Lifire Palace?" Qin Wentian suddenly asked, instantly causing many to feel bewildered. Everyone knew of the relationship between Qin Wentian and the Jialan Clan. Yet now, Qin Wentian was actually planning to allow Jialan Clan's members to take over the important positions of the Lifire Palace? Was he trying to mend their relationship?
Jialan Yuntian's eyes flickered, he thought of Jialan Qiuyue's words, as well as Jialan Jiangshan's instructions. He then stared at the white-robed figure seated on the Lifire Palace Lord's throne and nodded, "If Palace Lord is willing to appoint us, we will naturally do our best to serve."
"Mhm." Qin Wentian nodded. The Jialan Clan had extraordinary influence in Jialan City and has merit in suppressing the chaos that occurred during that last battle. For all governors, if you have positions such as vice governors or attendants lacking, I want you guys to communicate with the Jialan Clan. Also, if there are any suitable positions, consider the members of the Jialan Clan as the first priority. This command is not limited to just the northern city regions."
As the sound of his voice rang out, the eyes of everyone gleamed with sharpness. Qin Wentian actually allowed the members of the Jialan Clan to take up important positions in the various governor's manors. In this case, the Jialan Clan's influence would be sure to spread throughout Lifire City, seeping into the official authority. In addition, there are also some monarchs among the nine of them who had close relationships with the Jialan Clan. This move seemed to be extremely disadvantageous to Qin Wentian who had just ascended to the throne of the Lifire Palace Lord.
Jialan Yuntian naturally understood this. He cast a deep glance at Qin Wentian as he sighed in his heart. This man before his eyes was an unrivaled genius, he simply didn't care about the fact that the Jialan Clan's influence would spread throughout the city. When one's strength reached a certain level, no matter what schemes or plots you have, they would all be useless.
Ultimately, this was still a strength-oriented world. All other matters are nothing before absolute strength. Qin Wentian was so strong that he couldn't care less about the Jialan Clan.
Since Qin Wentian could become the Lifire Palace Lord, as well as the fact that he had enough strength to defeat the Lifire Empyrean who had been in the empyrean realm for countless years, he was naturally confident in his own talent and strength.
"Yes." Jialan Yuntian nodded, his heart was filled with a thousand emotions. Qin Wentian simply didn't give a damn about the Jialan Clan at all. What arrogance and confidence was this? After all, he broke through to the empyrean realm after a mere tens of years at the emperor realm and his strength had already surpassed Jialan Yuntian's father, Jialan Jiangshan. In the future, this disparity would only grow greater and greater. Qin Wentian undoubtedly has the qualifications to be arrogant!
"All the governors, make sure to cooperate and coordinate well with the Jialan Clan." Qin Wentian stared at his city governors as all of them nodded in compliance.
After completing the reorganizing of the Lifire Palace, Qin Wentian glanced at Jialan Yuntian. At this moment, it can be considered that he had repaid the Jialan Clan. Other than a trace of guilt he felt towards Jialan Qiuyue, the slate was wiped clean between him and the Jialan Clan. The position he had today, was also undoubtedly due to the Jialan Clan. Most probably, Jialan Mingyue would never have imagined that her wilful act those years ago, would set gears of fate turning and create the new Lifire Palace Lord.
"Alright, everyone can return to your posts first. From now on, I'll hand over the Lifire Palace's management to all of you. Do not disappoint me." Qin Wentian waved his hand as he spoke, incomparably solemn. Everyone bowed as they retreated, leaving the great hall. After that, they turned and went down the stairway. Only after they reached the exit did they dare to soar into the air to fly away.
The Lifire Palace Lord just ascended to his throne. No matter who it was, no one dared to show any disrespect. Nobody knew what Qin Wentian's temper would be like.
After the crowd left, Qin Wentian and Di Tian exchanged glances. After that, Di Tian's silhouette flashed as he soared through the air and departed.
Right now, Qin Wentian had settled the things here in the Lifire Palace but for Di Tian, his Emperor Pavilion still needed to develop. This was an opportunity for the Emperor Pavilion's influence to slowly seep throughout the entire Lifelong Realm now that it has a world palace lord supporting it. It would be extremely beneficial for their future plans.
"Palace lord." The Evil Emperor and Xu Li revealed smiles after the crowd left as they stared at the two people seated on top of the throne.
"Who are you two referring to?" Ye Qianyu giggled. The eyes of the Evil Emperor, Xu Li and a few others flashed before they laughed as well. That's right, they used to refer to Ye Qianyu as 'palace lord' or 'palace mistress' as well. Now that Qin Wentian has became the Lifire Palace Lord, who were they referring to when they called out the words 'palace lord'?
"In the future, there's only one palace lord and that's him. You all can refer to me as Madam." Ye Qianyu laughed. The Evil Emperor and Xu Li discovered Ye Qianyu's change. Both of them smiled as they called out, "Madam!"
"Mhm, you guys can leave for now, don't disturb the beautiful romantic couple's world between me and the palace lord. Oh, little lion, remember to help me guard this place too in the future." Ye Qianyu smiled. The Evil Emperor's expression froze before he depressedly lowered his head and turned about. With a roar, he transformed into a ferocious-looking lion king and left.
Xu Li and the others stared at the dispirited Evil Emperor as they laughed before leaving here as well.
In the Lifire Great Hall, only Qin Wentian and Ye Qianyu remained. The imposing expression on Ye Qianyu's face vanished, replaced by a charming smile. She turned to Qin Wentian, "How's the feeling of giving out orders while seated on the throne?"
Qin Wentian couldn't help but laugh when he saw Ye Qianyu's charming smile. "No matter how good the feeling is, it couldn't be better than the feelings I felt during the beautiful scenes between us last night."
Ye Qianyu's gaze stiffened before she started to giggle. Her voice was as gentle as water, "In that case, let your female servant properly serve my lord husband again."
Staring at her alluring gaze, that elegant figure with a hint of nobility in her demeanor, Qin Wentian felt an impulse to embrace her and lose himself in the bonding of their flesh and spirit once again. He couldn't help but to mumble in a low voice, "Demoness…"
"In that case, does my lord husband like it?" Ye Qianyu stepped lightly, as she sat on him, her hands cradled around his neck.
"What do you think?" Qin Wentian carried Ye Qianyu up. His figure flashed, directly soaring through the air, bringing her back to his bed chambers at the peak-most area of the Lifire Palace. Sounds of soul-stirring moans soon filled the air.
Being able to obtain both the beauty and the empire, this feeling was extremely marvelous indeed.
Several months later, the Lifire Palace gradually calmed down. The commotion caused by the storm in the past had also dissipated. The topics of discussion changed, only occasionally mentioning about Qin Wentian. However, there was no doubt that the story about Qin Wentian and Ye Qianyu had already became a legend. Not only that, there were different variations to the stories told as well.
But regardless of the variations, the ending would always be perfect. The two of them were like an immortal couple, causing people to envy them. That image of Qin Wentian holding Ye Qianyu's hand as they stared down at everyone looking up to them with worship and respect was an unforgettable one, deeply etched in their minds. On that day, the two of them looked down on everything from the peak, there were also tears of happiness flowing down Ye Qianyu's face.
However, to the legendary stories about Qin Wentian and Ye Qianyu, both of them didn't hear them at all. But there was no doubt that their lives were extremely wonderful now. This was especially so for Qin Wentian, he was in seventh heaven every night, Ye Qianyu was simply a vixen, extremely good in bed. The two of them stayed alone in the bed chambers at the peak of the Lifire Palace, enjoying themselves to the utmost.
During evening time, Qin Wentian stood at the peak of the Lifire Palace, casting his gaze down at the vast Lifire City. The setting sun dyed the sky a faint crimson, its glow reflected on the city walls. The scenery was magnificent and beautiful.
Ye Qianyu quietly walked to his side and leaned her soft body against his. She lightly spoke, "Are you missing them again?"
During this period of time, Qin Wentian had summarized his story and told it to Ye Qianyu. From Qin Wentian, she learned of Mo Qingcheng and Qing`er existences. These two had been with him ever since his youth, accompanying him as he traveled down his path. After they thought he had died, Qing`er's hair turned white overnight while Mo Qingcheng's heart died together with him.
Ye Qianyu finally understood why although she was imprisoned for many years, she still could not replace the two women in the most important place of Qin Wentian's heart. After all, the interactions and experiences that bound the two of them, was simply too little.
She also knew that in the heart of this magnificent young man beside her, the two women had positions that were immovable in his heart. She also had no thoughts of overtaking or replacing them, she truly only wanted to accompany him forever.
"Mhm." Qin Wentian nodded lightly. "Are you jealous?"
"I'm not." Ye Qianyu truthfully shook her head. "I really wish to meet them. In the future, I'll definitely get along well with them."
Qin Wentian's eyes flashed with a doubtful look as he stared into Ye Qianyu's beautiful eyes. This demoness, how mysterious.
Upon seeing Qin Wentian's expression, Ye Qianyu placed her hand at Qin Wentian's waist and suddenly twisted his waist with her fingers, "This is for you not believing in me."
"Alright, I'll believe you." Qin Wentian bitterly smiled. He embraced her and allowed her to lean against his chest. "Qianyu, thank you for the beautiful scenes you brought me."
"Mhm, I'm sensing that something is wrong." Ye Qianyu rolled her eyes at him. "Tell me honestly, you have been accompanying me for so many days. Are you planning to leave me here alone and ignore me?"
"Eh…" Qin Wentian's face was filled with black lines. He bitterly smiled, "Can you not disrupt the beautiful atmosphere?"
"Hehe." Ye Qianyu wriggled out of Qin Wentian's embrace. Her charming eyes stared at him, "Qin Wentian, I'm warning you. Don't even think about abandoning me."
Qin Wentian instantly perspired. This demoness was too intelligent.
He had been accompanying Ye Qianyu during these few days to make up for the suffering she had to endure through these years. For the sake of him, Ye Qianyu was locked in the Lifire Jail for many years before being shifted to the Lifelong Saint Hall where she was treated like a dancing lady. It was tough for Qin Wentian to imagine how she had survived all these years. Now that they were together, he naturally wanted to treat her well and accompany her.
However, Ye Qianyu was correct about one point. He was planning to leave her here while he depart the Lifire Palace.
Now, he was already at the empyrean realm and was sufficient to sweep through the entire Azure Mystic Immortal Realms with impunity. So many years have passed since he left, he didn't know how Qing`er and Qingcheng were doing. There were still many people in the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms waiting for him to return. If it wasn't for the fact that he didn't know how to return, he would have long taken the journey back.
The Qin Wentian now long had his heart set on speeding home. He didn't want to wait another moment. He didn't know what consequences there would be if he continued to wait. He didn't know if Qing`er and Qingcheng would encounter danger.
"Let me accompany you back to the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms." Ye Qianyu softly spoke, staring at Qin Wentian. Clearly she had already deduced what he was thinking about.
"Impossible." Qin Wentian decisively rejected. Currently, he had no idea how to return and it was very possible that he needed to step across vast segments of space. If he encountered spatial turbulence on the journey back, things would truly be too dangerous. Even he at the empyrean realm might not be able to handle that safely, let alone Ye Qianyu who was only at the immortal emperor realm.
