Chapter 535: Fighting For The Central Palace
Ao Longyu sat in front of Jiang Lan, never leaving.
Fortunately, they were in a corner, so it wouldn’t affect the inn’s business. Their side was also covered by an array formation, allowing Jiang Lan to peacefully stay in the epiphany.
However, because the enlightened Jiang Lan would emit the aura of the Dao, many people gained some enlightenment after entering.
For a moment, they realized that they could cultivate faster in the inn and gain more insights.
Just like that, the news spread like wildfire, and the inn’s business instantly exploded.
The youth complained. If this continued, he would not be able to practice his saber properly.
In the end, he squatted down beside Jiang Lan and began to practice cutting the wild animals. To his shock, he realized that he was learning even faster.
He laughed again.
He felt that this was good. Of course, he did not intend to tell the Eighth Prince. This way, his progress would be faster.
The next day, Ao Longyu told Ao Man about this.
Then, the two of them started fighting. They said that the other party was despicable.
Ao Longyu was confused. Why were they fighting?
She didn’t mind, only staring at Jiang Lan. She could naturally leave, but she seemed to be a part of her Junior Brother’s epiphany.
To be safe, she did not intend to leave even half a step. Only by doing so would her Junior Brother’s Dao be complete.
However, she sat there for a few years before transforming into Xiao Yu, waiting for her husband to wake up.
One year, two years, three years…
Five years, ten years.
Time was still passing.
“Ten years. It seems to be longer than before.” Xiao Yu pouted as she thought to herself.
Jiang Lan was comprehending the mortal world. He had never truly experienced it since he started cultivating.
Since he was lacking in his heart, it was naturally difficult for him to obtain more.
However, he still looked at the road ahead. He stood on the ground and looked at the sky. The clear sky was covered by dark clouds.
He felt that this world had trapped him and obscured his vision.
He stood there, looking at the sky and seeing the dark clouds.
There was wind around.
The wind began to blow the dark clouds, blowing them away as if it wanted the sky to return to its clear state.
It wanted the people on the ground to see more.
The wind kept blowing, and the person on the ground kept looking at the sky.
After some time, the number of dark clouds in the sky decreased. Later on, the last dark clouds were blown away by the wind.
However, behind the dark clouds was not a clear sky. Instead, it was a chaotic sky with no road ahead.
Jiang Lan was satisfied when he saw this.
He did not see the complete path, but he finally found the direction. Although that place was chaotic, as long as he broke through this chaos, he might be able to see the complete path to becoming a sage.
From nothing to something.
In the end, he slowly closed his eyes, withdrawing from this world. He no longer needed to stay here.
After remaining silent for a moment, he opened his eyes again. He saw the familiar sight of the inn and an exceptional beauty.
“Darling, guess how many years have passed.” Jiang Lan saw Xiao Yu looking at him with a smile.
How many years?
This question made Jiang Lan think for a moment. Enlightenment in the inn usually didn’t last too long.
“A month?” Jiang Lan asked.
“No.” Xiao Yu extended two fingers and said.
“It’s this number.”
“Two months?” It was indeed not good to let his Senior Sister sit here for two months.
Fortunately, two months was still acceptable.
“It’s twenty years, Junior Brother.” Xiao Yu knocked Jiang Lan’s forehead with a hint of resentment.
“Junior Brother, you’re too rude. You made your Senior Sister wait here for twenty years.”
Jiang Lan: “…”
Twenty years. This surprised him.
Did it take so much time just to see the direction of the path to becoming a sage?
Then, he looked to the side and realized that there were many customers today.
“What has happened in Kunlun recently?” Jiang Lan asked.
Under normal circumstances, it was impossible for the inn to have so many guests. However, he could naturally tell that his position was isolated. No one could see or sense him.
It should be his master and the innkeeper’s methods, as well as Martial Aunt Miao Yue’s.
“Nothing much. It’s because Junior Brother is undergoing an epiphany and they realized that they can cultivate faster here, so they all came over.
Over the past twenty years, waves after waves of people came.
However, it won’t affect us. The innkeeper has cast a spell, but I thought that I should ask Martial Aunt Miao Yue to help set up an array formation.
Therefore, your master went to invite Martial Aunt Miao Yue.” Xiao Yu smiled and said.
It was as if her actions would definitely obtain Jiang Lan’s approval.
This was a rare act of wisdom by his Senior Sister. He thus praised her.
“I think Martial Aunt Miao Yue will really like Senior Sister.”
Twenty years had passed, and he had entered the sect for 850 years. In other words, it was time for him to meet Imperial Lord Xi He. He should receive the notice soon.
It was time for Imperial Lord Xi He to compete for the Central Palace. It was also time for him to leave the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace.
He did not know what would happen next.
He had to be careful.
Xiao Yu stood up and patted Jiang Lan’s head.
“Junior Brother has to work hard too.”
Jiang Lan: “…”
This dragon had no self-awareness.
Arrogant and ignorant.
Furthermore, she was already an adult dragon. If all dragons were like this, the future would be worrying.
For a moment, he was a bit worried about the future. It might be fine if his child didn’t have a shell when the child was born, but it would be a headache if the child was so ignorant.
This thought seemed to have existed before.
After that, he left the inn with his Senior Sister. Because there were too many people, he didn’t show himself.
He would come over to thank the innkeeper the next time.
When he returned to the Ninth Summit, Jiang Lan saw a messy Ninth Summit with weeds growing everywhere.
“Looks like I’ll be busy for a while longer,” Jiang Lan said.
Xiao Yu pulled her sleeves and said enthusiastically.
“Leave it to me this time.”
She then looked at Jiang Lan.
“However, Junior Brother, you have to help me get used to not transforming into a half-dragon. I realized that I might have comprehended the calmness of my power.”
“Alright.” Jiang Lan nodded at his Senior Sister.
Whether it was true or not, he would help.
Half a month later, Jiang Lan was removing the weeds. There were many injuries on his arm.
Xiao Yu squatted beside him to help. She lowered her head and didn’t dare to look at Jiang Lan.
“Senior Sister, it’s already been half a month, yet it’s still so serious.” Jiang Lan looked at his hand and said calmly to Xiao Yu.
On the first day, it was even more exaggerated.
It was like after the wedding night.
“I’m sure it’ll be fine tonight.” Xiao Yu was not confident enough.
Because these words had been said for half a month.
Jiang Lan didn’t really mind. He didn’t deliberately ask for anything and only knocked on the ignorant dragon.
As he was removing the weeds, he suddenly heard someone reciting his Deity Position title.
It was Imperial Lord Xi He himself.
“Unparalleled Fist God, are you ready?
I’ll be starting in a few days. Before I start, I want to meet you and talk to you. ”
The other party didn’t set a time, which meant that it was up to when he was free.
Looking at his Senior Sister who lowered her head and pretended to know her mistake, Jiang Lan set the time seven days later.
Seven days later in the Ice Cicada Forest.
“Then, you can think of a new title these days. Or you can directly use Imperial Lord Lun Ling. The compatibility is very high.
I’ll see you in seven days.”
As soon as Imperial Lord Xi He finished speaking, Jiang Lan realized that the communication had ended.
He would accompany his Senior Sister for these seven days..
