A long black whip suddenly flew up and harshly struck Lan Xiao's face!
Bright-red bloodstains rapidly appeared on the handsome and intricate face, looking especially frightening.
Lan Xiao stretched out his hand and used his thumb to wipe his face. When he saw the bloodstains, he softly cursed, “To hell with you! Do you know how precious my face is!?”
I have waited a total of more than 10,000 years for this face!
“If you stubbornly resist me and continue struggling… Don't mention your face, even your holy body won't be saved!”
Lan Xiao sneered. “Okay! Why don't you just kill me now? Considering our relations in the past, you can give me a quick death, and perhaps I'll be very grateful for you. When you reach the netherworld next time, perhaps I can give you some convenience?”
“Forget it. Don't dirty my road to the netherworld. Disgusting.”
Then, Lan Xiao lay down again and supported his head with his hands, looking like he was waiting for death.
However, that voice disappeared and ignored him.
After a long while, Lan Xiao snorted lightly. Of course, he doesn't dare to kill me, or any one of us. However, such days are really unbearable.
The force in his palm sparkled, and he quickly brushed his hand past his face.
The wound healed rapidly.
He had a holy body, so it was naturally faster and more convenient to handle this.
“I still remember this wound!” He grinded his teeth and closed his eyes.
Godly Phoenix Mountain.
Chu Liuyue was thinking about Yi Zhao when she suddenly heard Zi Chen's low and cold voice. “Master, look there.”
Upon hearing this, Chu Liuyue looked toward the direction he pointed in.
The sky was dark. There was a bridge by the skies that kept extending upward.
When the bridge entered the clouds, a few rays of silver light flashed across. Then, increasingly more rays of light intertwined within the clouds.
They gathered together and slowly formed a large outline.
“That's…” Chu Liuyue squinted slightly. Upon closer look, her eyes narrowed.
It quietly floated in midair in a solemn, strong, and unreachable manner!
“That's Fantasy Divine Palace's Heaven Gate?” Zi Chen suddenly realized something and boomed.
Chu Liuyue remained silent. That was because there were more rays of light behind that door, intersecting and outlining a magnificent city lake.
Behind the clouds, the rumored Fantasy Divine Palace faintly appeared!
“It seems like the Heaven Gate is really about to be activated. With this commotion, I wonder how many cultivators in the God Residence Realm will pursue this.” Miao Zhen frowned.
This was a huge temptation to all cultivators. Even if they knew that it was dangerous, they would still go forth without hesitation.
“What do you plan to do next?” He looked at Chu Liuyue.
Chu Liuyue hugged Tuan Zi in her arms tightly and said carefully, “To Fantasy Divine Palace!”
Chu Liuyue and the rest left Godly Phoenix Mountain.
Luckily, with the Ancestral Golden Feather in Tuan Zi's hands, they could freely enter and leave conveniently. After they left, the barrier continued freezing.
In such a situation, this was undoubtedly the best choice.
Everything that happened at Godly Phoenix Mountain caused Miao Zhen to be worried about Godly Dragon Island. Thus, he did not follow Chu Liuyue back to Peach Blossom Dock and instead returned to Godly Dragon Island.
Chu Liuyue went on hurriedly.
On the way, she had already seen quite a few cultivators heading for the bridge by the sky.
The entire God Residence Realm seemed to be faintly restless.
Chu Liuyue returned to Peach Blossom Dock at the highest speed.
When she returned to the city, she coincidentally met Shi Rui'er and the rest.
“Yue'er!” Seeing Chu Liuyue, the tears Shi Rui'er held back welled up again. However, she still forcefully held it in, her pair of eyes still filled with sorrow.
When Chu Liuyue saw their disheveled appearances, she guessed a thing or two and immediately went forward.
“Greetings, Princess Consort.” The black guards bowed respectfully.
Chu Liuyue nodded and gestured for them to get up. She then surveyed her surroundings and realized that Rong Xiu was not around.
“Where's His Grace?” she asked.
The soldier at the front immediately answered, “Princess Consort, His Grace has something urgent to attend to and returned to the Sky-Cloud Empire first.”
Chu Liuyue was dazed for a moment. “Then, did he say when he would return?”
“His Highness said he needed some time, but he did not state the specific date of his return.”
Chu Liuyue found it rather strange. Rong Xiu returned in such a rush. Did something really happen in the Sky-Cloud Empire? But seeing that the entire God Residence Realm is about to descend into chaos, the Sky-Cloud Empire won't be an exception.
She retracted her thoughts and looked at Shi Rui'er. “Rui'er, follow me.”
The remaining people from the Flying Star Sect were arranged appropriately.
The hundreds of black guards from the Sky-Cloud Empire were also left in Yue Manor to guard the area.
Chu Liuyue followed Shi Rui'er back and asked in detail. However, it was a pity that Shi Rui'er didn't know what was going on either.
“…I was cultivating at that point when I suddenly heard fighting outside. I found it strange and wanted to go out, yet I saw the people from the Flying Star Sect attacking each other.”
“There aren't many people in the Flying Star Sect, and we're on decently good terms without any grudges. Hence, after I saw it, I felt that something was amiss. But before I could question them clearly, the ancestral hall suddenly burned.”
“The fire spread very quickly, and the entire Flying Star Sect was either dead or severely injured. We could only escape with the help of the Sky-Cloud Empire's black guards. If not…”
Recalling whatever happened previously, Shi Rui'er couldn't help but be overwhelmed by the sorrow, and her eyes were filled with misery.
Chu Liuyue patted her hands lightly, knowing that others couldn't comfort such sorrows. She then thought for a moment, knitted her browsm and asked, “I think we can't find out anything from those few people, but why did the fire burn in the ancestral hall?”
Shi Rui'er shook her head. “I don't know either. When I rushed over, the fire had already swallowed the entire ancestral hall. I only faintly saw that the fire seemed to emerge from below the hall…”
“Below?” Chu Liuyue's nerves suddenly became tense.
Shi Rui'er nodded. Seeing her friend's reaction, she could not help but be dazed. “Why? Is there a problem?”
“…I'm afraid there's a big problem.” Chu Liuyue took a deep breath. This situation is extremely similar to Godly Phoenix Mountain…
She thought for a while before saying, “I plan to go to Fantasy Divine Palace.”
Shi Rui'er was shocked. “Now?”
Chu Liuyue nodded and looked toward the sky.
The sky was now bright. However, the bridge in the sky didn't disappear like it did last time!
The city lake was hidden, but the door still floated in midair brightly!
Chu Liuyue took a deep breath. “The door to Fantasy Divine Palace is about to be activated.”
It was waiting for her.
