Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Luo Yunyang had been given the duration of a year by the Human Race’s Divine Ancestor, but it was a year in terms of time in Tianding Realm. Hence, Luo Yunyang had been carefully waiting for the time to return.
Now, the time had come!
Although the power sent from the Human Race’s Divine Ancestor now was still insufficient to open a channel for him, Luo Yunyang knew that it would not take long before the channel opened fully.
The power would dissipate eventually if he chose not to leave.
In the Vast Sky Sacred Realm, Luo Yunyang had seen a realm far beyond his 36 Great Cosmoses and had also experienced the crushing, overwhelming strength of the Taixu Sect, which could destroy Tianding Realm.
His future would be promising if he cultivated here.
However, Luo Yunyang still believed that he could leave behind everything he had and stay here forever.
He had always known that a martialist should sever his ties with all insignificant things, but doing it was really not as simple as saying it.
It should not harm him to stay behind in Vast Sacred Sky Realm. After all, he had Luo Jiutian behind him and had even become a disciple of the Taixu Sect.
But what if he left?
Luo Yunyang did not know exactly how terrifying the being back in his own realm was. However, according to his estimations, he reckoned that the being must be at least stronger than an Innate Taiyi Yuan Venerate.
This sort of existence must have schemed for eons and would be extremely hard to stop.
However, when Luo Yunyang thought of Yunxi and all the friends who had followed him for many years, he couldn’t bear to see them die just like this.
Ever since he had started his cultivation journey, Luo Yunyang had known that he couldn’t be a truly noble person but also could not bring himself to be a selfish, vile being.
Hence, his final decision was to return.
While Luo Yunyang pondered this hard, Xun Taishen brought him and the rest away with a flick of his sleeves.
Shao Fanzhu watched coldly as Xun Taishen and the others left. In the end, he said nothing else and just left with Yuan Venerate Kongjing and his fellow disciples.
The Nineteenth Prince and the rest of his party were unable to accept their failure but they still couldn’t see themselves seeking revenge against Luo Yunyang after seeing the way he had fought against Yuan Venerate Kongjing.
Or rather, they knew deep down that it was nearly impossible for them to become enemies with Luo Yunyang.
In the blink of an eye, Luo Yunyang and the rest arrived at the Taixu Sect. Xun Taishen shot a glance at Luo Yunyang before saying faintly, “You’ll be dismissed here.”
Usually, the elders would ask what they had obtained and how their cultivation had benefited from the trip. However, one-armed Xun Taishen wasn’t interested in any of the disciples except Luo Yunyang.
“Junior Brother Yunyang, I’ll head back to train in seclusion first. Let’s talk when I’m done.” Zheng Rulai greeted Luo Yunyang and left quickly.
Everyone who had entered Boundless Sky Palace had improved considerably. They were now very eager to combine their gains with their cultivation techniques.
However, even though they were in a hurry, they all still came one after another to say goodbye to Luo Yunyang, including Yuan Venerate Huang Yue.
Although Yuan Venerate Huang Yue was not willing to get too close to Luo Yunyang, she knew that her reputation would be ruined if she did not show due respect to him.
As a promising disciple of the Taixu Sect, it would be almost impossible for her to rise in the future if her reputation was ruined.
Luo Yunyang nodded at Yuan Venerate Huang Yue before leaving. He did not head back to train in seclusion. Instead, he returned to Luo Jiutian’s place and spent his time playing with his son and keeping his mother and sister company for a few days.
Luo Yunyang explained to them that he would be going into seclusion for a period before developing his Dao Energy. Before heading to train in seclusion, it was only natural that he would relax a while.
Luo Dong’er, who was attentive, seemed to sense something but she did not ask about it.
“Prince, His Majesty the War Emperor is asking you to make a trip over!” a reserved middle-aged man with a quiet face said respectfully.
The middle-aged man’s cultivation was also at the peak Taichu Yuan Venerate, and he was Luo Jiutian’s right-hand man. In the past, he had shown Luo Yunyang enough respect, but that had been just a form of courtesy.
Now, he respected Luo Yunyang sincerely.
This was because Luo Yunyang’s performance had completely exceeded his expectations.
Luo Yunyang nodded his head in acknowledgment. After sensing that the power of the Human Race’s Divine Ancestor calling for him to return was getting stronger, he felt that it was time for him to have a nice discussion with his father.
At the very least, he should let his father know that he was leaving.
Luo Jiutian wasn’t in his War Emperor Palace. He was drinking tea leisurely at the foot of the mountain behind the palace.
After the middle-aged man left, only Luo Jiutian and Luo Yunyang were left in this void.
Luo Yunyang did not have a deep impression of his father. Although he had been old enough to remember things when his father had left, he did not know why but his memory of Luo Jiutian was very faint.
“When are you leaving?” Luo Jiutian asked suddenly.
Luo Yunyang was not that surprised that Luo Jiutian could read his mind. Given Luo Jiutian’s abilities, it would be a joke if he did not know that Luo Yunyang was going to leave.
He hesitated for a moment before he said truthfully, “Probably today!”
“Have you really decided to leave? I am aware of the situation there. That place has been sealed off by a desolate force.” Luo Jiutian put his cup down gently and said, “I felt that power as well when I left. It is not something you can fight against!”
“Unless I am wrong, that realm is a cultivation ground for a supreme being who can at least control three levels of sky law. You need to be at least on par with the 12 Yuan Sages to break that realm apart!”
Luo Yunyang also thought that the person behind the scenes had to be very formidable. His own guesses were not as precise as Luo Jiutian’s, however.
After mulling this over, Luo Yunyang asked, “Can you ask one of the 12 Yuan Sages to subdue the person behind this?”
“I don’t have any kind of relationship with the Yuan Sages. Furthermore, the 12 Yuan Sages of the Taixu Sect have opened their own realms. How can they have time to take care of such a small issue?” Luo Jiutian said with a hint of self-mockery.
Luo Yunyang knew in his heart that there was nothing wrong with what his father had said. To him, this matter was of great importance, but to the 12 Yuan Sages, it was nothing significant.
It was something that could even be ignored.
The birth and death of the Human Race in that realm had nothing to do with the 12 Yuan Sages. How could they go to that realm, which they considered dead, when it had nothing to do with them?
“Your best option is to stay here,” Luo Jiutian said heavily. “Although my cultivation is far worse than the cultivation of the Yuan Sages, our family can remain comfortable in the Vast Sky Sacred Realm as long as the Yuan Sages do not interfere.”
“It might be possible for you to kill that existence if you return, but the likelihood of that happening is incredibly minute. That’s all I have to say. Stay behind!”
Luo Yunyang watched the solemn expression of Luo Jiutian. For a moment, he felt his father’s solicitude. Although Luo Jiutian had spoken very little to him during his time there, he had to admit that his father had been watching out for him!
“Father, I don’t want to leave either,” Luo Yunyang looked straight at Luo Jiutian and said, “But there are too many things in that realm that I cannot let go of! After all, it is impossible for me to cut off everything I have.”
Luo Jiutian sighed as he glanced at his son for a long while. “I knew that you wouldn’t be able to let it go, but I couldn’t help but hope to persuade you.”
After he said that, Luo Jiutian produced a piece of paper with a mysterious golden tint. Although there were no inscriptions on the piece of paper, Luo Yunyang was still shocked when he saw it.
“The Body Double Sky Talisman!” Luo Yunyang had read about the Body Double Sky Talisman in books. According to the books he had read, one would be able to form a body double after using the Body Double Sky Talismen.
Not only was that body double capable of combat, but it could even cultivate. Thus, the Body Double Sky Talisman was extremely precious.
Luo Jiutian waved his hand and said, “This is not the Body Double Sky Talisman. It is the Body Clone Sky Talisman! This talisman can split your body into two. Although that will affect your cultivation, you can recuperate from it in 10 years.”
“Since you want to leave, let the other half of you go back. You can return through the connection between the two bodies if you succeed but you will not die if you fail in the end. When your clone leaves for your realm, you can go train in seclusion!”
Although the Body Clone Sky Talisman was not the same as the Body Double Sky Talisman, it had to be just as precious. Luo Yunyang did not take the Body Clone Sky Talisman right away. Instead, he said heavily, “Father, this Body Clone Sky Talisman…”
“Enough! I’ve already taken out the Body Clone Sky Talisman. I can’t take it back even if I want to. Use your remaining time and form your clone with this Body Clone Sky Talisman properly. I don’t want you to die in that hopeless realm so soon after our family reunited.”
Luo Jiutian gestured with the talisman in his hand and spoke resolutely. Then, he took a step and left right away.
A deluge of thoughts went through Luo Yunyang’s mind as he held the Body Clone Sky Talisman in his hand. Although he did not know where his father had obtained this Body Clone Sky Talisman, he knew that the person who had given it to his father had to be extraordinary.
The price of such a supreme treasure was unimaginable.
In the end, Luo Yunyang didn’t ask anything else. He just carefully put the Body Clone Sky Talisman away.
Since it was difficult for him to reject the offer, he would make use of the Body Clone Sky Talisman to become stronger.
