Chapter 678 – Floating Cloud City’s Devilish Energy

“Junior Master Yueli, during these three years, was there any… news of Yuechan?” After hesitating, Yun Che still asked the question. He knew in his heart that the possibility of him getting a certain answer was so minuscule that it might as well be zero.

Seeing how expectant he was, Chu Yueli’s expression dimmed as she shook her head.

“It’s okay…” Yun Che took a deep breath. “Three years ago, I once entrusted Black Moon Merchant Guild’s headquarters with obtaining any information they could on Yuechan. With Black Moon Merchant Guild’s ability and it having been three whole years, they have to have found something… Maybe, they have already found out where she is.”

“Mn!” Chu Yueli nodded slightly, and her beautiful eyes were sparkling rays of hope. “Asgard Master, when you head over to the Black Moon Merchant Guild, remember to ask them if they have obtained any information on Qingyue. Now that the crisis here has been dealt with, it is instead not safe for her to be out.”

“I will.” Yun Che nodded, “I should be in Divine Phoenix Empire for a period of time. Maybe my stay will be long or maybe it will be short. If there are any accidents, remember to send me a sound transmission immediately. I will have a way to get back here right away!”

Yun Che bade farewell to the Frozen Cloud disciples, retrieved the Primordial Profound Ark, traveled through space, and returned to Blue Wind Imperial City.

Compared to yesterday, Blue Wind Imperial City was a lot more peaceful today; at least, that heavy, dark, and desperate atmosphere was half gone. The return of Prince Consort Yun and the news of him demolishing the army of tens of thousands of Divine Phoenix Empire had already spread throughout Blue Wind Imperial City and its surroundings, lighting up the hope that was extinguished a long time ago.

“Husband, how did it go with Sun Moon Divine Hall?”

When Yun Che returned, Cang Yue quickly came out to welcome him. Under the phoenix crown, her tender face was covered with deep joy and tiredness that couldn’t be hidden. Apparently, because she was worrying, she stayed up all night again.

“Empress sister-in-law, Big Brother really was too… too… too impressive!” Before Yun Che could answer, Xiao Yun was unable to hold back his excitement and yelled, “The people from Sun Moon Divine Hall were all so strong. Not only did their Young Master come personally, there were also a few Monarchs. But Big Brother burned one to death, and the others were all scared off… he scared them so hard that they would absolutely not dare to come again. Ah… Seventh Sister, you don’t need to examine me, I am really not injured at all. I only stood there for a little while and didn’t fight with anyone, ah ow-ow-ow…”

Xiao Yun’s plain words naturally couldn’t illustrate the scene back then, and he didn’t know that under the surface of an incredible success, Yun Che’s every breath was as if he was walking on a steel wire above a thirty thousand meter deep abyss.

Cang Yue didn’t inquire any further, because just by looking at the assured expression in Yun Che’s eyes, she knew that the calamity of Frozen Cloud Asgard had been already resolved… even though their opponent was Sun Moon Divine Hall. She smiled and said, “As long as everything is fine. This time, you should go to Grandfather’s side.”

“Mn, I will take Xiao Yun there right away.” Thinking about Xiao Lie and Xiao Lingxi’s faces, warmth naturally flowed through Yun Che’s heart, and then, it became stronger and stronger, turning into excitement so strong that he almost lost control.

“Xiao Yun, the Floating Cloud City that we are going to now… is where you were born. When we get there, you will be able to see your real blood relatives,” said Yun Che as he picked up the Primordial Profound Ark once again and smiled.

Xiao Yun opened his mouth, paused for a good while, and then strongly nodded his head hard, “Yes!”

Finding his own blood relatives and meeting and reuniting with them was the main reason that he came to Profound Sky Continent with Yun Che!

“I want to go too,” said Number Seven Under Heaven as she hopped and grabbed onto Xiao Yun’s arm.

“You and Xiao Yun are family now. How could we meet family without you. You can’t not go!” Yun Che smiled and said, “Yue’er, I will bring Grandfather and Little Aunt back soon. Brother Under Heaven, Yuanba, I will leave the imperial city to you two.”

“Brother-in-law don’t worry, no matter how many people they send, they shouldn’t even think about coming near here!” Xia Yuanba raised his strong arms, held his fists together, and exaggeratedly cracked his knuckles.

“Xiao Yun, Seventh Sister, let’s go.”

“Ah? Just… just go like this? Should we prepare something, like… like…” Xiao Yun didn’t know what to do all of a sudden. For over twenty years in the Illusory Demon Realm, he was labeled as the “Profound Sky Bastard.” Even though he was twenty-two years old, he had never seen any of his blood relatives before.

“You don’t need anything, let’s go!!” said Yun Che as he grabbed onto Xiao Yun. Compared to Xiao Yun’s nervousness, he couldn’t wait any longer.

After entering the Primordial Profound Ark and setting the distance and direction, in only an instant, they were already in the air above Floating Cloud City.

Leaving the Primordial Profound Ark, Yun Che took a deep breath of the air here… “I finally returned again, to the place that I grew up in…”

The air still held a familiar smell, but without the scent of the smoke of gunpowder this time.

From three thousand meters up in the sky, Yun Che silently looked down at his homeland that he was most familiar with. Blue Wind Nation was the smallest nation out of the seven nations of Profound Sky Continent, and Floating Cloud City was the smallest city of Blue Wind Nation. It was originally not noisy and lively compared to other large cities, but Floating Cloud City was currently even quieter than how Yun Che remembered it. Even though there were some people on the narrow streets, it was far less than usual.

As Cang Yue had said, even though Divine Phoenix Empire surprisingly sent a whole army of two hundred thousand to Floating Cloud City, they didn’t have any intention of attacking. Yun Che’s eyes swept over Floating Cloud City, and there didn’t seem to be any trace of battle… Not to mention large scale ones, there weren’t even small scale skirmishes. The streets were neat, there was no damage to the buildings, and the entire city wasn’t shrouded with an atmosphere of panic. Moreover… With Yun Che’s scouting, there was only one set of troops which should be the Divine Phoenix Army’s in the direction of the City Head’s Palace in Floating Cloud City, which only numbered around hundred.

Yun Che was relieved with this result, but at the same time, suspicion rose within his heart.

The citizens of Floating Cloud City were weak, the city was small, the land was poor, and the surrounding of the city was not abundant with resources. Even the profound beasts that existed there were ones of the lowest level, so there was no value in hunting them. On top of that, its location was at the most eastern side of Blue Wind Nation. The region was remote, and troops needed to travel a long distance, so taking it over would do more harm than good. If they had to take control of it, with the military force of the Divine Phoenix Army, a few thousand soldiers and mounts would be able to manage it… but the Divine Phoenix sent an army of two hundred thousand soldiers!

And this was before they sent their troops to Blue Wind Imperial City!

Just as Cang Yue had said, after the two hundred thousand strong Divine Phoenix Army arrived here, they never left.

But before their very eyes was a scene like this in Floating Cloud City.

Everything had a strangeness to it that could not be explained with common sense.

What’s going on?

What is the Divine Phoenix Empire trying to do to Floating Cloud City?




Deep explosions came from the east, northeast, and southeast. Some of the explosions were far away, and some of them were relatively closer and even more concentrated. Yun Che quickly turned his head to look to the east, and when his eyes looked that way, he saw a bunch of red shadows that were either condensed or scattered at the uneven, abandoned mountain region on the east side of Floating Cloud City. His eyebrows scrunched up a bit as he squinted as much as possible and slowly noticed that the red shadows were part of the Divine Phoenix Army which were wearing scarlet-red light armor!

“What is that sound? Could a battle be taking place over there?” Xiao Yun and Number Seven Under Heaven looked to the east and asked in alarm.

“It’s the Divine Phoenix Army!”

“Divine Phoenix Army? Could someone be in a battle with the Divine Phoenix Army?” Xiao Yun immediately asked. His eyes and Number Seven Under Heaven’s eyes couldn’t compare to Yun Che’s as Yun Che possessed the power of the Rage God.

“No,” answered Yun Che as he shook his head. There was deep confusion in between his eyebrows. “From what it looks like, they seem to be blasting the ground in a controlled manner.”

“Blasting… the ground?” Xiao Yun’s eyes widened. “Why would they do that? Could it be for training soldiers?”

Yun Che pondered, shook his head, and said, “I don’t know. Let’s ignore them for now. Let’s go, we’re going to land.” He extended out his hand and pointed at the most familiar place in his life. “That is Xiao Family’s courtyard, and it is also the place that I grew up in for sixteen years. Grandfather and little aunt are there right now.”

Just as Yun Che’s body was about to land, Jasmine suddenly yelled deeply in his mind, “Wait!”

Yun Che’s body suddenly stopped. Whenever Jasmine suddenly used this tone, she must have noticed something that cannot be ignored. He immediately focused and said, “Jasmine, what’s wrong?”

“Where is this place?” Just as Jasmine finished speaking, she recognized the place herself. “Floating Cloud City?”

Apparently, Jasmine had just woken up from her sleep. Yun Che answered, “I just returned here, what did you find? Is there something wrong here?”

“…” Jasmine was silent for a good while, and then she said in an incredibly deep voice, “Why… why is there devilish energy here!”

“Devilish energy?” Yun Che was stunned. “What do you mean by devilish energy?”

“…” Jasmine continued to be silent for a while, and her voice became even deeper, “It indeed wasn’t an illusion. That is definitely devilish energy! Devilish energy… to explain it simply, is when one or more types of negative emotions reach a certain limit. The law becomes twisted, and profound energy will mutate! The devil profound energy that it creates is even stronger than profound energy of the same level, but it is also harder to control. Because devilish energy will only be created with extreme negative emotions, the ones who possess devilish energy… all have twisted minds and beliefs. They are evil creatures that should not exist in this world! Or they can be directly called a demon or devil!

Yun Che, “…”

“This plane is really getting interesting, there is actually devilish energy here!” Jasmine said in a low voice. Towards the “devil,” she had deep disgust and even hatred because she had been poisoned by the most fearsome devilish poison!

“This person is in Floating Cloud City?” asked Yun Che as he lowered his voice.

“That’s right, and… it is within Xiao Clan that you are about to return to!”

“What!?” Yun Che’s heart was shocked.

“Go down and check it out immediately. I’d like to know what kind of person could release devilish energy on such a low level plane!” Jasmine’s tone was especially unusual.

  1. Next chapter: Chu Feng encounters Fen Juechen, turns out the latter is at divine profound realm. He attacks Yun Che instantly, little aunt didn’t even have time to plead. Yun Che’s body was dissolved by dark energy, he couldn’t be more dead. The end.

    1. Plot twist: Due to the twists of heavenly law caused by the explosion of the devilish energy, Yun Che’s soul got teleported to a baby that was born in a world called the “Outer World”. Memories of his past life got sealed just like it did on his first reincarnation, but this time it wasn’t caused by the pendant. After his soul got teleported there, he started living his new life which is also filled with twists and turns under the name, Chu Feng.

  2. but..i gotta say..the author did wrong by putting the devilish guy and mc’s aunt in one place…it just give bad-vibes ..but if it wasn’t that yun che also likes her then nothing would be strange and it would even be more interesting(?)..but now due to this make-up story …the girl just feels defiled..(same with the missing girls)

    1. I have been extremely worried with Yuechan’s condition for quite a while now. She has to raise a baby for roughly 3 years without any one to hold on to. She doesn’t even have any martial arts. She can only rely on her profound strength without any assisting technique whatsoever. There have been no foreshadow on her condition until now. We don’t know whether there’s a strong power giving her shelter or whether there’s a place she MIGHT be living safely. It’s just so scary.
      Xia Qinyue will also soon grow into another woman that I will have to be extremely worried of.. Sigh.
      As for the devilish guy staying around Little Aunt, as long as he doesn’t peek at her bathing, I think I can leave him be for a while. He could protect her when Yun Che wasn’t around after all, so I can worry less about her compared to Yuechan and Qingyue.

    1. It shouldn’t work that way though. He could content with the devilish energy merely due to his hatred towards Yun Che. His power feeds off his hatred. He has more hatred towards Yun Che than the Sacred Grounds because his encounter with Yun Che happened not too long ago. If his hatred towards Yun Che lessens, he will most likely weaken.

  3. This is gonna get interesting, just let me hope that they don’t fight, and that if they do, YC destroys him rapidly (using Jasmine ? I do’nt care, do it if it helps him ^^)

    |–> Everyone has that little thing that makes people remember them, so here is mine !
    ->> The Dao Emperor Apocalyptic Sea Dragon’s will is allmighty and encompasses the heaven and earth !

  4. This junior give thanks to Seniors for all the chapters. *bowing*

    Actually this junior noticed something.

    Why did Jasmine said “… it is within Xiao Sect that you are about to return to” ?

    This junior suggest to the seniors to edit it into “Xiao Clan”

      1. But, senior… Even though the raws said 萧门 (Xiao men) which translate into Xiao Sect, the first chapters said that the bastard was expelled from Xiao Sect and soon after he formed Xiao Clan in a backwater city, namely Floating Cloud City. So he and his descendants are not actually a part of Xiao Sect.

        Aside from the bloodline connection, Xiao Clan don’t have any share of influence from the Xiao Sect. Even Xiao Sect themselves intended to bring only 1 person back to honor Xiao Zheng’s wish and don’t want to have more things to do with them (aside from Xiao Kuangyun’s lust for Xia Qingyue and Xiao Linxi).

        So when YC went back to Floating Cloud City, it should be said that he was coming back into Xiao Clan, rather than Xiao Sect. Am I right?

  5. I have to say i’m a bit scared about whats gonna happen next chapter…it makes me nervous to think about Feng Juecheng, Yun Che and little aunt all in the same place.
    it gives me the feeling of the world exploding or something like that…not very fun…then again…gonna be an interesting encounter, where you sill LIttle aunt trying to diffuse the extremely awkward encounter

  6. Thanks for the chapter crushanapple, doom, alyschu, Ryan V, Štěpán M, Benjamin H, alex b, Shaun S, DAVID K, Nightrunners, Joni S, and Hattan A! I wonder if Jasmine will personally make a move since she has a grudge.

    And off i go to work once again!
    Dutch nutcase, over and out!
