Chapter 550: 550
When Mo Lian arrived at the courtyard, she felt an oppressive aura that was very different from the kind of energy that was being cultivated within the Ghost Realm .
Although the ghosts were capable of cultivating, they would never be able to reach the immortal realm . They would forever be stuck in a limbo between the realms of the mortals and immortals, never able to progress unless they escaped their eternal prison .
The strongest experts within the Ghost Realm were at a place where their strength could only be improved by consuming extreme amounts of energy, but to do this, they would have to massacre countless ghosts .
As such, their strength was comparable to a new god, but it would never reach above this strength . Now that Lan had broken through to become a deity once more, he was able to fight even the strongest experts within the Ghost Realm .
Luckily, having reached the immortal realm, Lan was able to regain his human form, and the moment the doors to the courtyard opened, Mo Lian was face to face with a blue-haired young man .
A tremor ran through her body, followed by a strange feeling of confusion . She could not help but frown as she wondered if she knew this person, but according to the branch leader, the one who had come for her was not a human being, but a little snake-like beast .
Following behind Mo Lian was the branch leader, and upon laying his eyes on Lan, he could not help but frown .
He had assumed that this person was an intruder, but after noticing Xue Wei, who was seated by the side and calmly cultivating, his frown smoothened out .
After a closer look at the young, blue-haired man, he noticed that the hair had the same color as the mingshe, and even the eyes had a strange resemblance .
Lan was also somewhat surprised . He felt a strange tranquility deep within which he had never encountered before, and while his raw power was much less than before he sealed his strength away, he felt much more at ease with himself and the world around him than he had previously .
It was also at this point that Lan had figured out many things which previously had made him obsessed, so although he noticed Mo Lian in front of him, he did not lose his mind in happiness, nor did he rush to her side .
His eyes lit up in happiness, but upon looking at the confused expression on the woman’s face, he knew that she did not recognize him .
Li Zhiqing was a gentlewoman . Although she was gentle, she was also very stubborn, and did everything according to her own beliefs .
Even when she had been abandoned by her loved ones, she was not willing to become bitter and full of anger . Instead, she got the best out of her situation, and it was precisely this positive mindset that had made Lan fall for her . Her bright personality and gentle smile were like a ray of sunshine which shrouded him in warmth .
The woman who stood in front of him looked exactly the same as the woman he had dreamt of for so many years, but much of the gentleness was gone .
This was a strong and successful version of Li Zhiqing . She had changed from a peach flower to a rose; both were beautiful in their own way, but while one was soft and harmless, the other was alluring and thorny .
Although she was different, Lan still felt his heartbeat increase, and a warmth spread in his body . Even so, he knew that they had to get to know one another all over again .
Mo Lian had expected to be disgusted by some snake wishing to coil itself around her neck and act intimately with her as if it was her pet, but she had forgotten all these negative thoughts the moment she lay eyes on the man in front of her .
Appearances were not very important for ghosts, but it was natural that some would be more tolerant towards beautiful creatures, and Lan, who was standing right in front of her, was truly beautiful .
His hair was shining like sapphires in the sunlight; the blue eyes were like the vast and cloudless skies of her dreams . His facial features were sharp and attractive, but the most memorable part of him was truly those blue eyes that seemed to entrance her .
The branch leader was aware of Mo Lian’s reputation of being completely uninterested in other people . Still, seeing her being stunned by the appearance of the person in front of them, he began to truly believe that they had known one another while this regional leader was still alive .
He could not accurately describe his own emotions . He was a bit sour, but also joyful . If they truly knew each other, there was a much bigger chance for him to escape this godforsaken world, but he was also slightly envious of the fact that someone had braced numerous dangers to come and save her .
“You are?” It took some time for Mo Lian to regain her senses, and when she did, she could not help but feel somewhat confused . How could a mere glance make her feel so disturbed?
Xue Wei was standing on the sidelines observing the way things were developing . He recognized Mo Lian right away from the previous image that Lan had given him, but he was not in a hurry to step forward .
This was not his battle to fight, this was Lan’s own matter, and only he himself could figure out the way to solve it in a manner that would make him satisfied .
