When Wu Yu and his group returned to Prince Le's Residence, news of Wu Yu's battle at the Number One Battlefield of the Immortal's Capital had already spread around the Immortal's Capital.
The Immortal's Capital was a place where news spread fast. Any astonishing thing that happened in any corner, even a small matter, would spread quickly in the shortest time possible.
Especially things that concerned the princes and princesses.
Kingmaker Le's famous name reverberated the Yan Huang Ancient Country again.
The key in this event was not Wu Yu defeating Xing Yan, it was the fact that he had obviously gained an unexpected victory against Prince Yan in their competition.
This was the key.
This was something aside from ability.
News had spread during their journey back. Originally, Wu Yu was enough to attract attention. However, now he would be surrounded by people no matter where he went.
On the other end, Qu Fengyu and the others had won a fortune because of Wu Yu and dared not say anything else now.
Actually, Qu Fengyu wanted to bet on Xing Yan, but if she had done so while standing beside Prince Le, then she would be ignoring Prince Le's face.
Wu Yu was already much stronger than Qu Fengyu and her group. Things were totally different now compared to their dynamic during the Taigu Immortal Path. Now he just needed to move his fingers and he could beat Prince Le and the three of them easily.
Wu Yu had not followed Prince Le's advice this time.
Perhaps Prince Le would be a little unhappy.
However, Wu Yu had still won. He believed that even Prince Le could only erase any hint of unhappiness in his heart now.
After returning to Prince Le's Residence, Qu Haoyan and the others left first.
Prince Le said, "We've offended Prince Yan. This is a problem. If you want to go somewhere, inform me. If it's convenient, then I'll arrange it for you. After all, after losing so much, he will not just let it go."
Wu Yu said, "Does he dare to assassinate me? Don't forget, I'm here because of the Ancient Emperor's Edict. He might be able to conceal himself well, but he cannot escape the Ancient Emperor's eyes."
Prince Le laughed and said, "You're right. He wouldn't have the courage. Since that's the case, then I won't say anything more. The most important thing now is to strengthen our abilities."
"Indeed. Prince, do reach the Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm as soon as possible. That is the ability you need to fight with them."
They separated after speaking.
"You're too forceful. This prince is probably feeling unsettled. While your existence benefits him, he has no competition within his age group," the Full Moon of Nanshan mused as he watched Prince Le leave.
Wu Yu laughed and said, "That is the reason why I'm not too worried about him. Besides, who knows what other secrets he has."
Anyway, the relationship between Prince Le and him was one of mutual use. He would never truly befriend him.
The three of them stood in the huge Kingmaker Hall. This Kingmaker Hall was really too big. A few hundred thousand people could be housed here. Naturally, it was not tight at all for just three of them.
"I can't be bothered with all this. I'm going to sleep for a few days to calm my nerves before I go out to have fun. The mortal world is prosperous. It's really beautiful. This Immortal's Capital is too big. I have not even been to 10% of the places!" The Immortal's Capital was as big as some of the small countries in the Yan Huang Ancient Region. This was the top place in the Yan Huang Ancient Country. As long as you have experienced the Immortal's Capital, it is no problem even if you did not go to other places in Yan Huang Ancient Country.
This was the most prosperous place!
The Full Moon of Nanshan slept as soon as he said he would, snoring loudly.
"Big Brother Yu, I also learned something. I'm going to relook at the Demon Subduing Scepter and see if I can communicate with it."
She had just taken a look at the human world, and it had impacted her greatly. The prosperous world outside was still endlessly wide. After seeing it, her mindset changed greatly.
Wu Yu nodded and said, "Just follow your heart and don't force anything."
Each of them trained in their own fashion. Wu Yu also had his own methods. Recently, he had progressed greatly in his dao realm, especially after he had studied the spirit designs of the Infernal Sky Pillar of Nine Fetters. His own studies of spirit designs and refining immortal medicines had improved greatly. Recently, he had changed his medicinal furnace into one of a dao treasure level. He entered the Floating Dreams Pagoda and calmed his heart to study the Ancient Array of the Mystical Dragon and refining of immortal medicines.
Much of his improvements now were gained through battles. It had been a long time since he calmed his heart and researched day after day. He traced the paths of predecessors to understand the mysteries in spirit designs and dao. Spirit designs and dao were always related.
The process of martial cultivation required one to find oneself during the process of training and battle. It also required one to calm down and pursue the essence of dao with rigor and caution by studying the relationship between spirit designs and refining immortal medicines. One would have to understand the heavens and earth to follow the epiphanies of their predecessors in their martial cultivation and to experience the essence and change in each spirit design.
This needed a lot of time, but once a breakthrough was made, the reward would be very valuable.
It was improvement in another form. It could refine Wu Yu's dao and supplement what he lacked during his aggressive progress. Those aggressive, strong, and crushing epiphanies could deepen his dao and increase his sense of self. He would get more explosive energy. When he calmed down to undergo the long process of understanding, it could make him mellower and strengthen his base.
The Immortal's Capital was like any other day. It was calm and peaceful, other than the occasional dispute. This had nothing to do with Wu Yu. After all, Prince Le was also training in seclusion. He probably felt the pressure from Wu Yu.
Wu Yu could use one day in Floating Dreams Pagoda as two days. Although, this could not increase his lifespan. He now had about 400 to 500 years of lifespan outside. It was the same for when he was inside the Floating Dreams Pagoda.
About two months have passed outside, while about four months have passed in the Floating Dreams Pagoda. Ye Xixi suddenly skipped ecstatically and gleefully towards Wu Yu. The Full Moon of Nanshan was also there at the moment. Wu Yu exited from the Floating Dreams Pagoda and the three of them gathered.
"Let me tell you some good news!"
Ye Xixi said mysteriously. Her eyes shone dark and bright.
"Little Sister, hurry and speak. Actually, even if you don't tell us, your big brother knows what it is. Is it that you have secretly fallen in love with your Big Brother Nanshan? Don't worry, your big brother welcomes anyone. I'll definitely treat you well." The Full Moon of Nanshan sniggered.
He waved his folded fan. Now that they were familiar with each other, he did not bother changing that painting of beauties into a painting of a landscape. He fanned it in front of Ye Xixi.
"Pervert!" Ye Xixi stuck her tongue out at him and then looked at Wu Yu excitedly. Light shone from her eyes as she said, "Big Brother Yu, it finally spoke to me. I had another dream, and in the dream, it passed me the spiritual art for martial cultivation! I can finally train in my own unique spiritual arts. But this is different from what I've previously trained in. I probably have to re-train. I have to correct my previous training before I can start training in this spiritual art."
There were various Qi Condensation Spiritual Arts in the world of martial cultivation. There were also various Buddhist Gates of Enlightenment in refining the Jindan. There were also Buddhist Gates of Enlightenment in expanding the Violet Kingdom and forming the Primordial Spirit.
Wu Yu's Great Way of Immortality Art included all Buddhist Gates of Enlightenment to gain immortalhood. Hence, Wu Yu need not look for any better ones after each breakthrough. However, Ye Xixi was different. She had used a different Buddhist Gate of Enlightenment from the beginning of her martial cultivation progress to the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm. Now that she was going to use a new Buddhist Gate of Enlightenment, she would have to spend more time and energy to change what she had learned.
While this would be more troublesome compared to Wu Yu and the Full Moon of Nanshan, this could not be avoided. After all, she was different from them and had not received her immortal's legacy from the start.
Wu Yu was, of course, happy for her.
Actually, this was a very important step!
"Congratulations for taking this first step. Now many things will naturally be accomplished."
Wu Yu was worried that she would not be able to take this first step for a long time, or even fail to communicate with the Demon Subduing Scepter forever. Then it would be no different from not possessing the Demon Subduing Scepter at all.
Taking the first step would mean that she could receive the immortal's legacy.
"But the Curtain Lifting General is an immortal from the Sky Palace. He is a Heavenly Immortal. What you learned previously is fit for ghostly cultivators. Your foundations are changing completely now that you are changing to heavenly immortality arts. That should be very difficult, right?" the Full Moon of Nanshan asked.
What he had asked was indeed crucial, and it was something that Wu Yu had considered.
Wu Yu said, "The way of the immortals is still stronger. If it were the usual martial cultivation method, I think there would be a clash. But this is the immortal's way. I think it can suppress her previous Ghostly Dao and turn it around."
This was what Wu Yu thought.
They looked at Ye Xixi.
At this moment, Ye Xixi shook her head. She was hesitant as she stuttered, "But, but... this Demon Subduing True Scepter passed a method of ghostly cultivation to me, so it should be a Ghostly Dao. It also told me that after cultivation, I can become a ghostly immortal and dominate hell..."
"What?" Wu Yu and the Full Moon of Nanshan asked at the same time. They had weird expressions.
"That's impossible, the Curtain Lifting General is the Jade Emperor's Royal General. How can he pass you a Ghostly Dao cultivation method..." Wu Yu shook his head. He thought that Ye Xixi might have been confused.
Because the Demon Subduing Scepter had chosen her, it should not be the case that it was giving her a flawed legacy. Besides, he was a Heavenly Immortal, how could he have things belonging to the Ghostly Dao that could even help one become a ghostly immortal after cultivation?
Ye Xixi said innocently, "But I'm right, the name of that spiritual art is called the Ten Wheels Bodhisattva Ghostly Immortal Mantra. Just seeing the name, how can it not be a ghostly cultivation method? And I see that this Demon Subduing Scepter is black and shiny, with a strong, vicious aura. It looks like a ghostly cultivator's weapon..."
"Ten Wheels Bodhisattva Ghostly Immortal Mantra!"
Wu Yu and the Full Moon of Nanshan looked at each other.
Both of them felt that this was unbelievable.
"So, this Curtain Lifting General might not be a Heavenly Immortal, but a ghostly immortal? But how can a ghostly immortal stand in front of the Jade Emperor and be his royal general? That is the person closest to the Jade Emperor..."
"Or perhaps he saw that Xixi is a ghostly cultivator or maybe she is not his most desired inheritor, so he gave her a random method to become a ghostly immortal," the Full Moon of Nanshan said.
From Wu Yu's point of view, he did not want to believe this guess. Besides, after Ye Xixi heard it, she was depressed.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
