Several days passed in the blink of an eye.
The sun at high noon shone like a ball of mighty flame above the world.
Suddenly, a burst of divine light rushed towards the sky from the depths of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace; a loud rumbling echoed throughout the region, and it was as if a towering ancient city had collapsed.
The terrible sound shook the entire Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, and sent everyone into a frenzy.
A series of divine rainbows and lights rushed towards the sky from the different peaks and divine islands. At the same time, some people noticed a colorful, immortal mist gush forth from the place where the light burst from.
But soon, the Elders of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace made a move and suppressed the visions, and covered it from the prying eyes of the onlookers.
Such a scene caused a sensation throughout the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace — it shocked the many disciples, and they soon spread the news around.
At the same time, massive waves went through the world outside of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace as the informants of the major Heritages, Races, and Orthodoxies passed the news back to them.
With every passing day, the situation in the Inner Region of the Upper Realm got more and more turbulent. Many speculated that something was birthed in the depths of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, and that had caused the phenomenon.
There were various rumors floating around in the Upper Realm that the depths of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace held a mysterious, ancient continent whose roots could be traced back to the Primordial Era of Immortals. It was said that the continent was moved to the depths of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace by supreme powerhouses of the time.
The continent was said to contain supreme opportunities like Immortal Scriptures, Divine Inscriptions, and whatnot other Immortal Inheritances which seemed to have been memorized only by the Elders of the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace.
On normal days, the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace guarded that area with their strongest might, and it would be impossible for outsiders to approach it without permission. But once the divine light rushed to the sky, the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace found itself pushed to make a choice as the various Heritages and Races showed an intent to move.
On normal days, all the opportunities belonged solely to the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, but now that the opportunity had shown itself before the world, there was no reason for them to let the Palace monopolize everything.
Many mighty figures of the various Heritages and Races had once studied in the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace, so they obviously couldn’t bring themselves to say that to the Palace’s face, so they planned to send their young disciples and family members to the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace.
Immeasurable Heaven turned extremely lively for a while as various divine lights, chariots, and warships, etc. came from all sides.
[In a remote Ancient City of Immeasurable Heaven.]
The black-gold carriage pulled by the nine phoenixes galloping through the sky landed in the ancient city, and attracted the attention of many cultivators in the surroundings.
They reckoned that the identity of the person inside the carriage couldn’t be simple if they dared to flaunt their might like this.
Many began to guess the identity of the carriage’s master.
Immeasurable Heaven had been very lively over the past few days, and they would see a large number of cultivators from various backgrounds rush towards the Heavenly Dao Ancient City, so they couldn’t help but wonder why such a noble carriage had descended to a remote place like this?
A black-clothed man with an ordinary appearance, tall stature, and a thoughtful expression raised his head and looked outside his attic after noticing the sudden movements outside.
“How come such a majestic chariot appeared in a place like this? From the runes and patterns on it, it appears to be someone from the Supreme Immortal Dynasty, no?”
“The one inside must have an extraordinary identity if they can get nine phoenixes to pull their carriage. Could it be some prince or princess?”
The man dressed in black muttered to himself.
If one looked closely at him, they would see a black pendant hanging on his chest. Every now and then, mysterious runes would flash around the pendant, and it also glowed.
“Speaking of which, this place isn’t all that far from the Heavenly Dao Ancient City; it won’t take much time to reach it if one rushes towards it.”
“I heard that the number one beauty of the Supreme Immortal Dynasty, Princess Yue Mingkong, has the appearance of an Empress! Could she be the one inside the carriage?”
A strange smile appeared on the youth’s face as he muttered these words. At the same time, he showed a thoughtful expression as he watched the black-gold carriage in the distance.
Right then, a desperate voice sounded from inside the black pendant on his chest.
“Brat, don’t forget what we are here for! There’s an opportunity for you inside the Heavenly Immortal Dao Palace.”
“Why the heck are you turning jelly over a woman you haven’t even seen?! The princess of the Supreme Immortal Dynasty isn’t someone you can reach right now.”
The youth in black showed an unhappy expression as he replied, “What’s the big deal if I go and take a look at the newcomer? Who knows, the person inside might not be a princess. Speaking of which, why would a princess from the Supreme Immortal Dynasty even come to a place like this?”
With that said, the youth stood up and walked out towards the carriage while ignoring the persuasions of the voice inside the pendant.
“Your Excellency, we have arrived at the Black Stone Ancient City.”
The voice of a respectful old woman in white robe sounded from outside the carriage, and reminded her master sitting inside.
The one inside the carriage was none other than Yue Mingkong who was lost in a daze.
The words of the woman brought her out of her daze, and she narrowed her eyes and nodded as she watched the scenery outside.
‘Black Stone Ancient City; from what I recall of my previous life, Ye Ling, the successor of the Ancient Emperor of Reincarnation, first made a name for himself in the Black Stone Ancient City.’
‘That guy gained immense fame within a few days of time, and even Ye Langtian, the Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Ye Family, suffered a massive loss at his hands in their first bout. If that wasn’t enough, then Ye Ling beat him down even more in their later battles.’
‘Ye Ling rapidly rose and became a shining star of the Inner Region in a short period of time. His reputation overshadowed even my good husband’s for a while. What’s more? He had a lot of friends and confidants around him all the time as well! The Young Master of the White Tiger Family, the Young Master of the Purple-Winged Dragon Family, and others with such powerful backgrounds gave him a boost.’
Yue Mingkong thought so in her heart.
She naturally came here for the [Ancient Reincarnation Talisman], which was in the possession of the Ancient Emperor of Reincarnation’s successor.
The [Ancient Reincarnation Talisman] contained the Dao of Reincarnation, which was an extremely mighty force that could even contend with Gu Changge’s Forbidden Inheritance’s abilities.
She didn’t understand much about these matters at first, but she found this information after looking through countless ancient records and inscriptions over the last period of time.
No matter what, she had to snatch the [Ancient Reincarnation Talisman]!
Still, she was well aware of the fact that the man named Ye Ling was no simple character. Ye Langtian was regarded by the outside world as a Young Supreme who stood on equal footing with Gu Changge, so there was nothing to say about his extraordinary means.
Yet, even as a Young Supreme and the Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Ye Family, he was pummeled by Ye Ling.
In her previous life, Ye Ling was one of the many brilliant youths who suffered at Gu Changge’s hands. She wasn’t sure if he died later or what, but it was a fact that he had disappeared for a long time.
‘In my previous life, Ye Ling was still almost killed by my good husband even with the [Ancient Reincarnation Talisman] in his hands, so I must be careful even after I get it from him.’
Soon, Yue Mingkong’s expression showed calm, and her deep and indifferent phoenix eyes looked outside the carriage. She had already spread around a [Heaven and Earth Confinement Formation], and was now waiting for Ye Ling’s arrival.
As for why she was sure that Ye Ling would appear?
From her memories of the previous life, Yue Mingkong already knew that Ye Ling seemed to admire her greatly for some unknown reason. After becoming the Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Ye Family, he proclaimed before her that he would snatch her away from Gu Changge.
She naturally sneered at his delusion, and because of this matter, he was almost killed by Gu Changge, and then disappeared.
At first, she had thought that Gu Changge was offended by Ye Ling, but now that she thought about it, she realized that there was a high chance Gu Changge took the opportunity to attack him for the [Ancient Reincarnation Talisman] as well.
Gu Changge had plotted for innumerable opportunities, so there was no way he would let go of the [Ancient Reincarnation Talisman].
With these considerations in mind, Yue Mingkong directly came to the Black Stone Ancient City.
She believed that Ye Ling would definitely show up after he saw the markings of the Supreme Immortal Dynasty on her carriage, if he was in the city, of course.
There were countless women around Ye Ling in her past life, so she could already guess his nature.
‘Ye Ling’s cultivation base should only be in the initial stages of the Conferred Lord Realm, so I will definitely be able to bury him in this place today.’
Yue Mingkong thought that with a frosty, indifferent expression. She was like a supreme Empress who could dictate the life and death of all around her.
She couldn’t care less about a mere Ye Ling — to her, he was nothing more than an ant. Of course, she had made a lot of preparations to make sure she could thoroughly trample this ant.
It didn’t take long for Yue Mingkong to perceive someone’s arrival. The newcomer was a young man with a strong cultivation and aura; it was clear that he had cultivated a mighty body-cultivation art.
She narrowed her phoenix eyes, and waved her jade-like hand.
Tremors went through the void in the surroundings. At the same time, a shocking aura hidden in the dark finally surfaced and locked up the surroundings.
“This is the mansion where that carriage just landed, right? Why do I suddenly feel uncomfortable?”
Ye Ling stopped in front of a quaint mansion with a frown on his face. Although he loved beauties, he wasn’t r3t4rd3d; he had avoided many life-threatening dangers because of his sixth sense warning him in advance.
[1: When the Heavenly Daddy personally sends you spidy-sense signals even though you weren’t bitten. Fr!ck him.]
For some reason, he felt uneasy standing in front of the mansion.
“Turtle Bro, should I go in or not?”
Ye Ling’s face showed confusion as he asked for advice from the pendant around his neck.
Back when he was young, he once went up a mountain to search for some magical herbs. It was on that adventure when he found himself falling into an underground cave where he accidentally discovered the black pendant and became the successor of the Ancient Emperor of Reincarnation.
There was a remnant spirit of an ancient turtle inside the black pendant.
The ancient turtle was the one he now called ‘Turtle Bro.’ Turtle Bro claimed to be the mount of the Ancient Emperor of Reincarnation, who was looking for a successor for its master, the Ancient Emperor of Reincarnation.
Ye Ling didn’t believe it at first, but then realized that it seemed to be telling the truth.
It was just that the old turtle had no other ability that could be useful to him. At most, he could teach him some common sense about the world around him, and nothing more.
It was a plain and uncharacteristic turtle that didn’t resemble the mount of an Ancient Heavenly Emperor.
The old turtle couldn’t help but roll its eyes at him in response, and said, “It’s just a mansion, what’s there to fear about it? Where’s the boldness you show when you are picking those Jade Beauties?”
Ye Ling felt that it wasn’t wrong. He had never crossed the other party, so why would they harm him?
He was overly suspicious over nothing.
Ye Ling’s courage soared as he thought about this. He had heard countless rumors about Princess Yue Mingkong, and yearned for her every day. If he could see her today, then the meeting between them couldn’t just be a coincidence, but a work of fate itself, no?
As for Princess Yue Mingkong being the fiancee of the Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Gu Family, Gu Changge? He couldn’t give one sh!7 about that. After all, even Ye Langtian was nothing before him, so what could Gu Changge, who was said to be only as strong as Ye Langtian, do against him?
However, in the very next moment after Ye Ling arrived outside the mansion, an indifferent and heartless voice sounded from inside.
Ye Ling’s expression immediately changed as he heard the voice; he never thought that someone truly wanted to kill him.
