Chapter 795 – A Dangerous Situation

Supreme Ocean Palace. Under the cover of night.

“What did you say? Yun Che has returned?” This report caused the Sovereign of the Seas, Qu Fengyi, to react with incredulous shock.

She had sensed that there was something weird going on with the barrier around the Moon Slaughter Devil Nest so she swiftly sent men to go investigate. But she never thought that she would receive such an amazingly shocking piece of news.

“Yun Che came back with Absolute Monarch Sanctuary’s Xia Yuanba and the Divine Phoenix Sect’s Princess Snow. Right now, he is at Venerable Cloud Palace. Even though no one came out to greet him, many people observed his return. So this news will definitely spread quickly.”

A green-robed elder of Supreme Ocean Palace reported all of this to the Sovereign of the Seas in a respectful tone.

“…” The Sovereign of the Seas, Qu Fengyu, pondered silently for a brief moment before speaking in a low voice, “This sovereign personally held an audience with Yun Che a few days ago. Given his strength, there is no way he could survive in the Moon Slaughter Devil Nest for three days and it is even less possible that he would be able to escape… But given the current state of affairs, it seems that the tales of his master Old Man Duotian were true after all.”

“My Lord Sovereign, since this affair involves the forbidden ground of our Supreme Ocean Palace, should I immediately summon him to see you?”

“No!” The Sovereign of the Sea, Qu Fengyu, directly rejected that proposal before continuing in a bland voice, “Even though this sovereign is extremely curious as to exactly what method he used to escape from the Moon Slaughter Devil Nest, the Devil Sword Conference is at hand, and we can brook no further disturbances or incidents. We will discuss this matter again once the Devil Sword Conference has ended.”

At the same time, in another corner of Supreme Ocean Palace.

“Father, this son has something to report… Yun Che has returned! Right now he is at Venerable Cloud Palace, this son saw it with his own two eyes!”

“Oh?” Xuanyuan Wentian, who had been meditating, opened his eyes as he briefly slanted his face to the side. No shock crossed his face and he only gave a mild laugh as he replied, “Then that is truly the best news I’ve heard in awhile.I was regretting the fact that we would miss a grand spectacle at the Devil Sword Conference tomorrow. But now that things are the way they are, this regret can be forgotten.”

“Father, aren’t you at all curious as to how he escaped from the Moon Slaughter Devil Nest?” Xuanyuan Wendao asked with a mystified expression on his face, “From the moment he entered the Moon Slaughter Devil Nest up till now, it has been more than eighty hours, so how exactly did he escape from there alive!? Moreover, that barrier is something that even Father is not able to do anything about but he could actually…”

“There is no need.” Xuanyuan Wentian said in a grave tone, “In ten hours, the Devil Sword Conference will convene. I have been waiting and preparing for this day for the past one thousand years! Now that the time is finally at hand, we cannot make any errors! A momentous event draws near!”

“Yes, it is this son who has reacted impulsively and recklessly.” Xuanyuan Wendao hurriedly bowed his head before cautiously continuing, “Then do we need to send anyone to keep an eye on Yun Che?”

“There’s no need!” Xuanyuan Wentian’s brows sunk by a fraction, his eyes were as calm as still water but one could see a dreadful cold light glinting in its depths, “On the contrary, don’t give him even the smallest reason to feel suspicious at all. Let him feel safe and secure when he participates in the Devil Sword Conference tomorrow. Because if we’re missing Yun Che for the Devil Sword Conference… Hmph, then it will end up being less interesting by far!”

“Yes!” Xuanyuan Wendao gave his speedy assent before a cold laugh bubbled from his throat, “That Yun Che definitely wouldn’t even dream that Father had long ago uncovered most of his secrets! Once the Devil Sword is unsealed, the Mirror of Samsara will sooner or later become part of Father’s prized possessions.”

————————————

“When did this happen? Did anything happen to the others? Do we know who did this?”

Yun Che sent a sound transmission with extreme urgency and the Frozen Cloud Celestial Soul quickly rang with a reply.
Three days ago… It had already been three days!?

Yun Che, who had originally calmed his mind so that he could begin his recovery, could no longer sit still. In a flash, his heart had become so anxious that it grew numb… Xiao Yun had disappeared three days ago and it was during this period that he had been trapped within the Moon Slaughter Devil Nest!

“Jasmine, we…”

The moment the words left his mouth, Yun Che suddenly realized it… Jasmine had already begun reconstituting her body, so she definitely could not be disturbed! He was not even able to discuss anything with her right now.

Furthermore, he could not go anywhere that was outside a ten kilometer radius around Jasmine… so that meant that he definitely could not return to Floating Cloud City either!

Yun Che sucked in a deep breath as he strove to swiftly compose himself.

What had happened!? Why did Xiao Yun suddenly disappear!?

If he was alive, he was missing. If he was dead, they had not found the body. Yet they had not heard any strange or abnormal sounds before he had disappeared and they were not able to find any traces of a battle. Given the strength of Xiao Yun and Number One Under Heaven, to be able to kidnap Xiao Yun while rendering him powerless to resist and escaping the notice of Number One Under Heaven, the person who performed the deed was definitely at the level of a Monarch!!

Within the Profound Sky Continent, besides the Four Sacred Grounds, the only other power that had Monarchs in their ranks was the Divine Phoenix Sect… and one Fen Juechen. Given Fen Juechen’s character and temperament, he definitely would not do such a thing. The Divine Phoenix Sect also did not have any reason to do such a thing. So that only left the Four Sacred Grounds!

However, why would any one of the Four Sacred Grounds make a move against Xiao Yun?

Could it be that Sun Moon Divine Hall had used some means to discover that I had manufactured this “Old Man Duotian”, so they decided to carry out their vengeance and kidnapped Xiao Yun to threaten me?

No, that cannot be right! If that was truly the case, given Sun Moon Divine Hall’s strength, they would be able to strike against me easily if they had seen through my deception. They would not need to make this kind of move. Even if they really wanted to capture someone to use against me, Grandfather or Little Aunt would have been far more suitable targets. No matter what, it should not have been Xiao Yun.

Right… why was it Xiao Yun in the first place!?

Yun Che’s brows sank even further. The more composure he regained, the more he realized how bad the current situation was.

Could it be that Xiao Yun’s identity… was exposed?

No… there was no reason for that to happen! Among Xiao Yun, Number One Under Heaven and Number Seven Under Heaven, Number One Under Heaven and Number Seven Under Heaven still possessed the physical characteristics of the elven race. Even though their disguise had been perfect, there was still a chance that they would be exposed. Compared to the both of them, there should have been no way anyone could tell Xiao Yun had come from the Illusory Demon Realm!

Just because he was a completely new face did not mean that someone would be able to tell that he was from the Illusory Demon Realm!

Besides, Xiao Yun was a naturally cautious person, so he had not even used the slightest bit of profound energy while he had been residing in Floating Cloud City.

Furthermore, during the many visits he had paid to Floating Cloud City over the past few months, he had not detected anyone spying on them or taking notice of them… He just occasionally sensed Fen Juechen’s aura every now and then.

“Could it be…” The most dreadful and terrible possibility appeared in Yun Che’s mind, “There are people from the Four Sacred Grounds that are still within the Illusory Demon Realm…”

Yun Che’s chest rose and fell heavily as he sucked in a deep breath. After that he raised his right hand and summoned out the Frozen Cloud Celestial Soul.

“Senior Master Murong, find a way to inform Little Aunt and the rest that Xiao Yun should be safe and sound, I have already managed to roughly guess his current location. Tomorrow, I will be bringing him home, so put their minds at ease for me. Also…” Yun Che paused for a moment, his voice growing heavier after that, “Make sure that my Grandfather, Little Aunt and Seventh Sister are all congregated within my Grandfather’s courtyard after noon tomorrow. Until I appear, make sure that they don’t even take a step outside those premises.”

Blue light flashed as his words were transmitted to Frozen Cloud Asgard which was fifty thousand kilometers away. Yun Che glanced at the isolation barrier that surrounded Jasmine as he muttered to himself in an extremely gloomy voice, “Why did it just have to be at this particular time. Haah…”

“It looks like I will have no choice but to participate in the Devil Sword Conference tomorrow after all!”

“But I have been far too negligent this time around. I actually overlooked the fact that if the Four Sacred Grounds had the power to invade Demon Imperial City, then they would naturally be capable of silently infiltrating the Illusory Demon Realm as well… Besides, they still have a spy in Duke Ming!”

“Right now, I can only hope that the matter regarding the Primordial Profound Ark has not been exposed. Or else…”

The curtain of night gradually retreated as the sky started to grow bright once more.

The Supreme Ocean Palace which had lain silent for an entire night was still exceptionally tranquil. But there was an abnormally strong profound energy that was surging in the air above it, it was almost as if it was portending that some major event was about to occur.

The surging and tossing profound energy completely roused Yun Che from his meditation. He slowly opened his eyes before inhaling a small breath of air.

Last night, he had only been thinking of the best method he could use to recover from some of his wounds. But things had turned out contrary to his wishes. First, Jasmine had left his body, then after that, he found out that Xiao Yun had disappeared. This matter was so serious that he could not completely focus for the rest of the night, so his wounds recovered far slower than they normally would.

Behind the screen that lay at the corner of the pavilion, Jasmine’s barrier was still completely still and silent. For the past seven years, he would always discuss things with Jasmine first whenever a major event had occurred. This was the first time Jasmine was not by his side so his heart was filled with an emptiness that far exceeded what he had been expecting… In fact, he was even feeling a bit bewildered and distracted at the moment.

He got up and opened the door, striding out of the pavilion. The first thing he saw was Feng Xue’er and Xia Yuanba who had kept watch all night.

“Big Brother Yun, have your injuries gotten better?” Feng Xue’er drifted close to him like a floating flower as she asked in a concerned voice.

“Mn, they’ve gotten much better.” Yun Che said as he surveyed his surroundings. He discovered that the entire palace was empty and devoid of people so he immediately asked, “Has your master and the rest of Absolute Monarch Sanctuary left for the Devil Sword Conference already?”

“Yes!” Xia Yuanba nodded his head as he replied, “Master and the rest departed from here about an hour ago. Master initially wanted to pay a visit to Brother-in-law and the other Spiritual Masters and elders also wanted to see Brother-in-law as well. But I told them that you had been seriously injured and you needed a quiet place to rest, so they did not press the issue.”

“One hour ago? The Devil Sword Conference shouldn’t start for a while, correct?” Yun Che asked as his brows twitched.

“It’ll be roughly an hour’s time before it begins… Brother-in-law, your expression is rather peculiar today. Has something happened?” Xia Yuanba blurted out after he observed Yun Che’s current expression.

“…Let’s be off then. We will go to the Devil Sword Conference as well.” Yun Che did not explain as he grasped Feng Xue’er’s hand and began walking outside.

After they had exited Venerable Cloud Palace, Yun Che was about to ask Xia Yuanba where the Devil Sword Sword Conference was being held when he saw Spiritual Master Ancient Blue standing in the courtyard. He was dressed all in white, holding a white horsetail whisk in his hand, a faint and serene smile on his face.

“Master, why are you still here? Shouldn’t you have already gone to the Sea God Arena?” Xia Yuanba asked in astonishment.

Spiritual Master Ancient Blue gave a faint laugh before his eyes turned to Yun Che, “I thought about it and decided it would be best to go with you. Little friend Yun, it looks like your injuries are indeed serious and your profound energy has greatly weakened as well. But it is good that your wounds have already stabilized and it will only require a period of quiet convalescence for you to fully recover. During this Devil Sword Conference, you should just play the role of an observer, there is no need for you to force yourself into action.”

Yun Che strode forward as he replied, “I thank Senior Ancient for his concern. Because I am currently injured, even though I am staying within Venerable Cloud Palace for a while, I have not yet been able to visit all the seniors from Absolute Monarch Sanctuary, so I’ll have to ask for your forgiveness in that regard.”

“It matters not.” Spiritual Master Ancient Blue laughed merrily as he shook his head. He did not probe into how and why Yun Che had sustained those wounds and how he had been able to escape from the Moon Slaughter Devil Nest alive. He raised his head slightly to look at the sky, “In about an hour’s time, the mysterious phenomenon of all thirteen stars aligning will appear in the blue dome of the heavens. This will also be the most critical period of time when it comes to the matter of unravelling the mysteries of the devil sword. Even though it is still rather early, all of the heroes of the Profound Sky Continent have already gathered at the Sea God Arena. We should start making a move as well.”

The sun burned brightly in the blue sky above and there was nothing unusual happening at all.

The floating Ocean Palace still remained deathly silent, and they did not see a single person as they made their way to the Sea God Arena. In front of them, an incredibly astonishing aura radiated from afar… That was definitely the Sea God Arena where all the peak powerhouses of the Profound Sky Continent were gathered. It was also the place where the Devil Sword Conference was being held. It was roughly six to seven kilometers away from their current location.

This distance somewhat comforted Yun Che.

80 thoughts on “ATG – Chapter 795” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

    1. Every time I look to the comments to see some fun cool stuff…. and mostly get disappointed with the generic ‘first’ and ‘f5-sect’ sort of responses. :-/

      1. Me too, i look at comments to see if there are opinions, guesses or something related to the novel, but always find this ridiculous kind of comments.

          1. Lol, this is actually part of the events of a sect war. Individuals disgusted with the tyranny of the f5 sect need to create their own sect, and either beat the f5 sect at their own game, or gather tribute to wake up the almighty Admin God in hopes they sympathize and smite the f5 sect.

          2. Just a simple question to answer then: Is this professional work or a site which mainly purpose it is to entertain people?

            Why is it wrong that we have fun with what we are doing? It’s not like every useful comment is deleted because of us or something like this. If you want to read comments on the story, just quit whining and skip the first comment with all its replies.

            And to see it from the viewpoint of the admins, wouldn’t it be really unwise to shut down a peaceful community that is part of this website? I mean, it’s not like we are hacking some websites or flaming through YouTube… It’s a harmless thing like the race of being the first in the comments and it makes the people even more attentive to the site… That’s wonderful for the admins, isn’t it?

      2. I have been in seclusion for million of years and just able to come by , take this as a guidance from a senior. Ignore them junior daoist alradas , they are demons on your heart that is trying to ruin your dao heart , strengthen your dao heart and severe these demons when you do you will be able to transcend in a higher realm.

        1. Fellow daotits aprdomaincom is on a high level of comprehension in life. I wish to have such a strong senior cultivator like fellow daotits aprdomaincom.

          1. *Sigh~* Let’s face it brother DaoDragon, we will never achieve the same level of profound life comprehension as fellow daoist aprdomaincom.
            *Sigh~~*

          2. u can keep wishing or u can work really hard to achieve your goal……..it’s your choices that defines you…….keep cultivating …… and you brat!! magnumwo, I hate people who gives up even before trying, what makes you think you’ll never get better. keep trying and who knows may be in next 100000 years u might catch up to me.

        2. Mere mortal like you dont understand us immortals , we already severe our life in mortal world , this is our life and our own dao!

          1. yeahh… and a mere sane person like me wouldn’t understand you insane people…

  1. Hmm… it’s not ironic at all that he can’t go more than 100 breaths being further than 10km and seconds later he gets told his bro is missing 😂 This guy seriously hardly ever gets a break 😂

    Am I the only one who’s a bit anxious at this point that something is either gonna go wrong with jasmines body or that she’ll just disappear for a while?

    1. I’m thinking that yun che will interrupt her or something, but he can always wait till jasmine is done and have her find his brother as she did when she tried to find little fairy, it would be way faster than him trying anything else.

    1. Wasn’t explain in the last chapters? Jasmine cannot do it because the Ark have its own dimension and that will server her connection to YC.

    2. She can’t, that would cut the connection to him and kill her unless he goes into it with her and stays there till she done. I was more thinking couldn’t she have done it in the Sky Poison pearl, but I can’t remember if it can sustain actual living bodies the same way it does with spirits, weapons etc

  2. He doesn’t think he’s taking a risk.
    He is fully confident that he can get out of dodge using the ark.
    Personally I really hope that he can introduce Jasmine to the room full of idiots and clear up who his master really is! Sadly she’ll probably have to pull his butt out of a fire I expect. Aaaannndd….where’s the Little Demon Empress. She came over a little while ago if I remember correctly.

    1. I think she hasn’t used the teleportation array from the yun family yet cause it needed to charge power or something, but she for sure will arrive in the momment in which yun che will have more troubles to save him.
      I’m starting to think that she might be the one who took away xiao yun xd since nobody knew anything of him being from illusory demon realm, the only one being known as being from illusory demon realm was Number one under heaven, xiao yun probably is guiding little demon emperor to ocean palace (Just a wild guess, the chance for it being like this is really small)

      1. We already know exactly who took Xiao Yun without a doubt. It was clearly spelled out in this chapter and one from a long while ago. The sacred ground do still have spies in the demon continent. We saw this like 30 or so chapters ago. My memory is kinda fuzzy on it, but some dude used their last transmission thing to get ahold of the head of the sword sacred ground dude, Xuanyuan Wentian. Thus, this dude knows who Xiao Yun is completely, and knows most of Yun Che’s secrets.

        Yun Che realizes this in this chapter, and Xuanyuan Wentian and his son also clearly said that they know his secrets and it can be easily inferred that they’re likely going to reveal their captured Xiao Yun and expose Yun Che for some purpose at this sword conference. I’m assuming that they somehow want Yun Che or his “master” to help them out in attaining power from the devil sword or something of the sort.

        To the original comment… you really expect Yun Che to tuck his tail and run away when we’ve never seen him do such a thing before? We know he knows who have Xiao Yun and he surely expects that they’ll bring out Xiao Yun at the sword conference. You think he’s going to hide away from the main show and abandon his brother? Clearly you didn’t comprehend a lot of what this chapter was spelling out… because there’s one more person that’s attending this conference that he cares about, his bro as a prisoner.

        Also, if I recall correctly, the Little Demon Empress should have arrived on the continent by now, or very nearly now. It could take her a day or so after arriving to figure out where he’s at and get over to his location. She could even pick up his little aunt, his other wife, and bring them all along to find him before showing up at the main event and dispensing out due punishment at the perfect timing. I expect Yun Che to get in a pickle, yet right before he uses and exposes the profound ark in front of everyone, she’ll show up.

        1. Ah, and we also already know the sword sacred ground dudes intend to use poison against Yun Che…

          It’s super effective! (Not)

          It’s not too hard to get a picture on how this is all going to go down.

  3. She ignored Yun Che’s words and surveyed her surroundings before floating in the air.

    Yeah I didn’t think the author was going to try to justify his nonsense writing here either.

    @above comment : He can’t escape using his ark because he can’t move jasmine or move away from jasmine.

    1. He can use it. He just can’t use it for very long. It would certainly be able to get him from the sword conference back to Jasmine’s shield, considering he could probably make that hop in a few seconds.

      1. There’s still the possibility that he may be able to then take her into the ark as well and then they can all escape together. I’ve got the feeling that our Little Demon Empress will show up right before he takes that route, and then Jasmin will show up when things go out of LDE’s ability to handle them.

        That’s how this novel has always done things. Yun Che always rushing straight at danger with 200% determination, balls of steel, and that mind set is rewarded by things working out in some crazy way. This isn’t just bad writing like many believe. This is based on a spiritual principle that many Eastern cultures have.

        If you’re a powerful individual, through enlightenment, then you’re at harmony with life and thus life will respond and support you and your desires. You could call this the blessing of Grace. Your actions will be for the best of all through experiencing your union with all, and so the all utilize all that it has to support whatever is needed. It’s tied to the ideas about karma, fate, reincarnation and so forth.

        It’s pretty often that readers simply put down a novel because they think it’s bad, but the issue lies more in that they simple don’t understand it. Trying to figure out the reasons behind something instead of just writing off something as being bad is one of the best ways to learn from writers. This is just some humble advice I’m offering… <3

        1. Solving problems through plot armor = bad writing. No amount of philosophy is going to change that.

          This however is not why this sword conference is bad writing. It is bad writing because there is no justifiable reason for Jasmine to recreate her body when Yun Che is in a place that contains multiple people that can kill him.

          1. Here here! She should be rebuilding herself somewhere safe, not in the middle of the f’ing conference!

          2. There’s plenty of justifiable reasons. First, unless it’s certain that Yun Che is going to die before she can get her body back, she’s going to get it asap. She just can’t wait. Second, Yun Che was just goina chill with her for the some hours it would take and not go to this conference or anything. They didn’t realize the plots against them until it was too late. Third, they can just escape into the profound ark whenever they need. Not much can stop that escape method, especially when no one knows about it.

            There is an aspect of plot armor but there is many aspects of Chinese culture that make much of this stuff legit. It’s not bad writing when it’s not just plot armor excuses, only to people who don’t understand the reasoning behind it. Sure, Mars Gravity doesn’t fully take the time to express such things, but I see that as a boon to the novel anyway. It’s part of the writing style of many authors, to not waste too much time going into the philosophy behind it and leave it as something the readers generally already understand.

            Selling it short is only going to lessen your enjoyment, but that’s your choice. I find it perfectly ok, and it makes sense to me on every level, but to each their own. I’m only writing this as offering an opinion that might help ya’ll appreciate and look at things a little closer before selling it short. It’s usually not that hard to find reasoning to back up the inevitable plot armor stuff, and I’d rather use my own imagination and use my own intelligence to put together the few explanations and clues rather than have the author always take an excessive amount of time in perfectly explaining out every little potential plot hole and plot armor thing.

            Don’t get me wrong though, as I can sympathize from where you’re coming from. It’s a delicate balance, and Mars Gravity can be a little lax with this stuff, but that’s just part of who he is and his writing style. He’s not going to suite everyone as well as he does me. I’d probably write a bit similarly to him I guess.

    2. You simple don’t understand why he writes the way he does. Many, especially of Eastern Cultures, wouldn’t see his style as bad, but rather traditional with a modern flair. A lot of people from other cultures don’t have the knowledge of Eastern Cultures to understand the principles behind a lot of these things…

  4. Attend the event > Try to poison the MC > MC was unaffected by poison > Try to subdue the MC > MC on tight spot > Demon queen to the rescue > She cant handle multiple attacts with the same lvl > jasmine now finished constructing her body > good ending > extra item : devil sword > MC awaken devil aura on body (devil orb sort of). This Granpa knows 👌

    1. Yeah, that’s what I expect mostly as well. Only, there’s got to be some other elements/problems jumping in here some how that will lead us into the next arc. The whole devil thing isn’t going to be resolved too easily. That’s probably where the key problem of the next arc will be around, or maybe we’ll take a detour back to his wifu from his past life. We know that Jasmin intends to give him some blood/upgrade as thanks for getting her body back. Was it the Evil Gods blood, or one of the others? I forget. Last chapter it was mentioned. Who knows how that will change him and what’s going to happen with this devil stuff in him, and that black jade thing.

    2. Indeed.

      There are only a couple things I’m not sure about.
      1. How is the poison guy going to have a poison strong enough to effect the leaders of the sacred grounds?
      2. Was Xiao Yun kidnapped by the little demon empress, or was he kidnapped by one of the sacred grounds?

  5. want to be praised?
    actually u will be a good novel writer someday, well in fact we dont need someday, you could be ryt now. you know every aspect of a novel should have. so why dont you try make a good novel that suits you and let the world know the true quality of a novel.

    1. Nah, that’s not the way to bring him down off that horse. I mean, his reading comprehension wasn’t high enough to understand this chapter so how could he write a better novel than this? He already defeated himself by not understanding why Yun Che decided to go to the conference when it was pretty clearly spelled out. I’m sure that quite a few haven’t picked up on that though, so it’s not a big deal. We all have our own talents, and not all of us have high reading comprehension, especially when it comes to novels from a culture like the Chinese who’re pretty unique.

    2. Seeking praise in the comments section of a website, more like conversation. Though now your words carry less of a passive aggressive mocking and slur your sincerity is still as believable as the Earth being flat. The name RoastandStir…. If you wish to speak of human motivations your own handle about says it all and your intention.

      For you trolling junior one might hope once you actually go through puberty you might actually be a better human being. These are all the words I have for trolling junior.
