Basically, all the elite personnel from Yan Huang Imperial City, the Shangyuan Dao Sect, the Shushan Immortal Sect, the Tianyi Race, and the demons of Endless Demon Seas had gathered here.
It wasn't just them. Below them, on the foot of the mountain, there was a large number of Yan Huang Immortal Soldiers wearing suits of Yan Huang Immortal Armor.
The Yan Huang Immortal Soldiers were densely distributed throughout the mountain. Wu Yu made a rough estimate and realized that perhaps everyone from Yan Huang Imperial City was here.
Wu Yu was baffled by this. Why had they gathered here instead of around the Yan Huang Ancient Well? Moreover, why were all the Yan Huang Immortal Soldiers outside of the city?
He changed directions and moved before their eyes instantly.
It had just been slightly more than half a year. The Taixu Sage Master, the Imperial General, the Seven Immortals of Shushan, Ying Huang, and the rest still looked the same.
They also happened to spot Wu Yu by chance. Before this, Wu Yu hadn't informed them that he had returned.
Therefore, they were pleasantly surprised.
They might not have been hoping for Wu Yu's return and would rather he made his mark on the Yan Huang Ancient Region. Nonetheless, seeing that Wu Yu had returned safely, they probably felt a little more secure.
"You are back from the Taigu Immortal Path? Didn't you manage to get a Taigu Immortal Talisman to take you to the Yan Huang Ancient Region? That's within expectations. It's really hard to snatch one, as everyone there is an insanely talented expert," the Taixu Sage Master remarked emotionally after seeing him.
"The Taigu Immortal Path is perilous and it's great that you have returned safely. It's just a matter of time before you can make your way to the Yan Huang Ancient Region." The Imperial General stepped forward and started observing Wu Yu. Sensing that Wu Yu had made huge improvements in cultivation, he nodded his head in satisfaction.
"Great! You are almost at the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm, and it has only been half a year."
They surrounded Wu Yu. The Seven Immortals of Shushan and the rest were also looking at Wu Yu with friendly gazes.
"Wu Yu, you have made a vital contribution! It must have been you who spread the news in Taigu Immortal Path that made the Yan Huang Ancient Country send a group of elite experts over," Jin Shengshen said emotionally.
"The people from Yan Huang Ancient Country are here? When did this happen?" Wu Yu's expression turned solemn. From what he heard from Feng Xueya, it would appear that none had arrived.
"Just yesterday," answered the Taixu Sage Master.
They had arrived here just yesterday. It was not surprising that Feng Xueya had not received news about it.
Wu Yu had some connections with Prince Le in the Taigu Immortal Path and had even exposed his advanced dao treasure, the 10,000 Dragons Staff. Although this met his initial expectations, the arrival of people from the Yan Huang Ancient Country still worried him a little.
"How many of them are here? What is their exact strength?" he asked immediately.
The Imperial General answered, "Probably a few hundred. Their lineup is frightening, and every single one of them is a Primordial Spirit Transformation expert. Moreover, they are much younger than me. I have not met some of their leading figures, but they are definitely strong and could eliminate Duomingshan Shengxue and Yu Fuyao of the Heavenly Seas easily. It would appear that the matter of the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord has basically been resolved. Wu Yu, you have indeed not let us down. Great!"
Perhaps he had thought of the Yan Huang City Lord at this moment. Therefore, his eyes were slightly red.
The Taixu Sage Master continued, "We really don't have to worry about the matter with Heaven Devouring Evil Lord. I vaguely heard them saying that they are from the Yan Dragon Army, an extremely elite team directly under the central command. Every single one of them is a genius in their own way."
Yan Dragon Army!
Wu Yu recalled hearing this name previously. Giving it deeper thought, he recalled that the father of Qu Haoyan and Qu Fengyu seemed to be the commander and the one in charge of the Yan Dragon Army.
It was because of this that they were allowed to stay with Prince Le.
It should have been Prince Le who spread the news out and arranged for them to come.
However, he was also baffled. He asked, "Why are you guys here? Why is everyone from Yan Huang Ancient City out here?"
The group exchanged glances. In the end, the Taixu Sage Master coughed a few times and said, "They were sent by the Yan Huang Ancient Country to help us. Therefore, it's natural that they are more arrogant. Moreover, this is a crucial event and death and injuries are inevitable. To avoid unnecessary deaths and injuries, they evacuated us out of Yan Huang Imperial City when they got here. Before getting their approval, we are not to enter. Seeing that you were trying to get in previously, we tried to stop you."
The Imperial General also said, "Wu Yu, this is fine. This is to ensure our safety. Since you are back, just wait for their good news with us."
So that's how it was.
"Emptying Yan Huang Imperial City?"
Wu Yu thought about it more deeply. This was indeed the more cautious way. However, even the Taixu Sage Master and those who could have provided help were barred from entering and kept in the dark from what was happening in it. That seemed a little overboard.
They had just arrived, while the Taixu Sage Master and the rest had set up numerous spirit designs. It was more appropriate for them to have at least a man or two to explain those.
"You have just returned from the Taigu Immortal Path. Take a break first," said the Taixu Sage Master.
Wu Yu thought about it. Prince Le and the rest were dead and perhaps those in the Yan Dragon Army had received news of it. After all, when they arrived at that mountain of lightning, the majority of the people left the Taigu Immortal Path.
Prince Le had died in battle, while Wu Yu was a key figure. Those that cared about Prince Le's death would naturally look for Wu Yu. Perhaps they might not make things difficult for him, but they would likely have to ask him for more details.
Perhaps they would even want to take the 10,000 Dragons Staff away or something.
In that case, Wu Yu felt that he shouldn't be in a hurry to meet this group of people. He ought to hide in the dark while finding out more about this group of people before acting.
Therefore, Wu Yu told the group, "If anyone asks, please don't tell them that I have returned for now. This is because something happened in the Taigu Immortal Path and I have to assess their attitude towards me first."
When Wu Yu said this, the group was clearly anxious.
"Wu Yu, did you offend someone?" the Imperial General knew about his temper and felt that this was more plausible.
"You can say that. To keep things simple, just remember what I've said and act accordingly. It would be best if they could solve the issue of the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord and leave this place," said Wu Yu.
If that was the case, he had no intention of showing himself. After all, no one knew he was alive right now. Also, no one knew that he had left the Taigu Immortal Path.
With the Yan Dragon Army around, the matter of the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord would almost certainly be settled.
"Alright." The group nodded.
Wu Yu looked around. Other than those leading figures of various large forces, there were some other familiar faces. For example, Shen Xingyao and Shen Xingyu from Shushan and others.
Ji Lingshuang from the Shangyuan Dao Sect and her sister, Gusu Yudie.
The teenagers of Yan Huang Imperial City.
Wu Yu was prepared to return the Emperor's Pagoda, the Gold and Jade Dragon Staff, and other dao treasures to them.
In the end, there was Jiu Ying as well.
Jiu Ying still looked the same. Although his improvements weren't as great as Wu Yu’s, They were still rapid and substantial.
Jiu Ying stepped forward and said, "It seems like I can no longer keep up with you. I won’t have any chance encounters by remaining on the Dong Sheng Divine Continent. I want to see the outside world and experience perilous situations at some point."
The outside world was indeed filled with dangers. He would be considered really weak. However, Wu Yu had no intention of stopping him. This was because it was true that it was hard to make huge breakthroughs while he remained on the Dong Sheng Divine Continent.
He chatted with Jiu Ying for a while and then looked around. He didn't manage to spot Nangong Wei. Perhaps she wasn't very well and thus didn't show herself. It wasn't appropriate for him to ask about her.
At this point, there seemed to be movements from the Yan Huang Imperial City above them. Perhaps it was the people from the Yan Dragon Army. Wu Yu hid himself in a hurry. The truth was, no one in the Yan Dragon Army would recognize him. Therefore, all he needed to do was hide or mingle within the Yan Huang Immortal Army and it would be fine.
Indeed, two people descended from above. Wu Yu caught a good look at them using his Eyes of Fire and Gold.
They were two men wearing fiery-red armor dao treasures. Those armor dao treasures looked domineering and even more majestic than the armor dao treasure that the Yan Huang City Lord had handed down to Wu Yu. Their suits of armor seemed to be embedded with red dragon scales, seemingly forming flaming dragons wrapping around their bodies, adding majestic vibes to them.
Both men were overbearing and had exceptional dispositions, above that of the people from the Dong Sheng Divine Continent. Their eyes were cold yet imposing. It was not surprising that the Taixu Sage Master and the rest would remain there obediently.
However, the cultivation levels of those two men weren't too high. They were likely to be third tier Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm cultivators or so, similar to the Imperial General or the Dubhe Sword Immortal.
However, they were a lot younger than the Imperial General. Based on his estimate, their cultivation years would likely be close to 100 years at most. They were likely to achieve great things in the future, or at the very least, exceed where Taixu Sage Master was.
Just any two random people had such high cultivation levels. This went to show that the Yan Dragon Army was not simple.
They stopped in the air before the Taixu Sage Master and the rest and didn't get down.
As for the Taixu Sage Master, the Imperial General, and the rest, they recognized them, bowed, and said, "Greetings, Wu Yun and Yang Qiang."
The two men were intimidating. One of them said, "We are here today to inform you guys. If Wu Yu from your Dong Sheng Divine Continent has returned from the Taigu Immortal Path, get him to meet our commander in Yan Huang Imperial City. Our commander has matters to question him about. Even if he doesn’t come now, you guys have to inform us as soon as he returns. Do you understand?"
The other added, "Our Yan Dragon Army is saving your Dong Sheng Divine Continent. Wu Yu has made a vital contribution. You don't have to worry about him. Our commander just wants to ask him about some details and won't make things difficult for him."
The group exchanged glances. The Taixu Sage Master was afraid someone would leak out the news by accident and thus replied in a hurry, "Not a problem. If Wu Yu is back, we will get him to meet your commander right away."
"If you know that he's back, inform us about it first. Before inviting him over." When the two men finished their words, they flew up and disappeared from sight, entering the city.
The Taixu Sage Master had thought of asking about the situation with the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord, but he didn't get the chance.
After they left, everyone was getting a little worried. Among which, the Imperial General asked, "Wu Yu, did you offend some noble character? It's better for you to not remain here. Leave immediately and don't let them find you."
He was indeed worried about Wu Yu's safety.
Wu Yu shook his head and said, "Not exactly. This matter is rather complicated. However, I'll hide myself for now. Everyone, please rest assured."
His only question was who the commander for this mission was.
"If they are proactive in eliminating Duomingshan Shengxue, it will likely not take more than a few days. Let me wait for the outcome."
Wu Yu had made up his mind.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
