Chapter 542: Leaving Kunlun

 

Translator: Atlas Studios  Editor: Atlas Studios

Looking at the disappearing Gu, Jiang Lan bowed respectfully.

This was the Kunlun Ancestor. He could not be rude.

Not to mention that the reason why the Grand Desolate World could survive until now was also because of the sacrifices made by him and the others.

He could think that they had given it willingly, but he could not be rude.

This bow meant that he would take over from now on. He didn’t care if he could succeed. He would try his best.

There were some things he had to face, even if no one told him the cause and effect and even if they didn’t leave any gifts for him.

He had been dodging everything that he could, but he had never taken a step back when he faced something he had to face.

He would do whatever needed to be done.

He would bear all the responsibilities that belonged to him.

After Gu disappeared, Jiang Lan stood where he was for a while.

Finally, he turned around and walked out. He had already obtained the gift and his Deity Position’s title had been changed.

It was time for him to go back.

He wanted to find the path to becoming a sage and experience the suffering of the mortal world.

However, just as he walked out of the Ancient Imperial West Palace, he heard some voices.

From Ba Country…

With the help of Qing Mu, he observed for a while and realized that these people were making offerings across the country again.

Occasionally, he would hear the name ‘Long Name Heavenly Venerable’.

He also felt that the title was a little too long. Actually, it was better to call him the Ancient Imperial West Palace’s Eight Desolates Lun Ling Heavenly Venerable.

Then, he waved his hand and borrowed the power of the Ancient Imperial West Palace to start a rain in Ba Country.

This was considered his response to them.

However, he realized that he did not need the Mountain Sea Mirror to see Ba Country.

It was unknown if it was because of the increase in his cultivation or because he had changed his title.

In theory, he could not further fuse with the Deity Position. Because he had the sage opportunity, the Deity Position could not compete with the sage opportunity.

If others succeeded, he should succeed as well.

After that, Jiang Lan left the Ancient Imperial West Palace and returned to the Ninth Summit.

When he opened his eyes, he saw Xiao Yu looking at him.

“Darling, your title is so long,” Xiao Yu said immediately.

“It was not me who came up with it.” Jiang Lan replied.

Why would he think of such a long name?

He didn’t know what Gu was thinking. His name was the longest. He didn’t really fit in.

It also seemed to be eye-catching, not in line with his usual style.

But since he had already taken it, there was no need to care too much about it.

“Junior Brother, are you going into seclusion?” Xiao Yu asked.

Her Junior Brother had told her that there would be some benefits if he changed his title this time. Perhaps he could take a step forward.

He said that he would only know the details after he changed his title.

Now that it was over, she could naturally ask.

“No.” Jiang Lan shook his head.

“I won’t go into seclusion. I’ll wait a few years.”

Yes, although the gift was there, he had no intention of using it now.

Or rather, it was different from before.

He planned to slowly release the gift and slowly absorb it.

“Not going into seclusion?” This surprised Xiao Yu. She stood up and said.

“Junior Brother, I’ll go into seclusion when you enter seclusion.”

Xiao Yu’s words did not bring any psychological changes to Jiang Lan. He only looked up at Xiao Yu and smiled.

“Senior Sister, let’s go down the mountain in two days.”

Xiao Yu was stunned for a moment before smiling brightly.

“Sure.”

Going down the mountain this time was different from before.

This time, they were going to the mortal world to live a life of ordinary mortals.

Her Junior Brother wanted to train.

And she would accompany him.

They would be together for the next few decades.

The next day.

Jiang Lan brought Ao Longyu to the peak of the Ninth Summit.

He was here to bid farewell to his master.

He was going out.

“Looks like you’re going to be out for a while.” Mo Zhengdong understood what Jiang Lan meant.

His disciple was going to try to take another step forward.

He needed to find an opportunity.

“En, I should be gone for a long time.” Jiang Lan nodded.

Ao Longyu followed beside Jiang Lan, intending to follow Jiang Lan in whatever he was going to do.

She would accompany him.

Mo Zhengdong didn’t refuse. He only told Jiang Lan to be careful and take good care of the Goddess.

He wasn’t worried about Jiang Lan’s safety, but the Goddess was only a True Immortal, so she was more or less in a bit of danger.

“Disciple understands.” After hesitating for a moment, Jiang Lan continued.

“Then Master, remember to ask Martial Aunt Miao Yue to help maintain the array formations.”

This trip would last for hundreds of years. If he did not create opportunities for his master for such a long time, he felt that his master and Martial Aunt Miao Yue would definitely not make any progress.

Therefore, he could only ask his master to ask Martial Aunt Miao Yue to protect and maintain the array formations in the Ninth Summit.

He deliberately strengthened the array formation again.

Besides, if there were some serious flaws, the Ninth Summit would fall into a rather chaotic period.

This way, his master would not forget or find it troublesome.

It was not suitable for the Ninth Summit to be in chaos for hundreds of years.

After all, the people from the other summits would come over to borrow the environment to cultivate, such as Xiao Yu and the others.

Those who cultivated array formations would also come.

If it continued to be chaotic, it could affect his master’s reputation.

There would always be people who said that if the Ninth Summit lost its only disciple, it would be extremely chaotic.

If no one thought so, he would ask the Eighth Prince to spread the rumors.

Even if the Eighth Prince was unwilling, he had to brace himself and go.

“Alright.” Mo Zhengdong nodded.

Jiang Lan didn’t care if his master would forget or brush him off.

After that, they bade farewell to Jiang Lan’s master. They were going to the Third Summit next.

Naturally, they also needed to bid farewell to Xiao Yu’s master. This trip would take decades, not a few days or months.

The Jade Pool Goddess was going to leave for decades. It was not a small matter.

Naturally, they could not leave just like that.

Third Summit.

“A hundred years?” Zhu Qing looked at Jiang Lan and Ao Longyu in surprise.

“Isn’t it a bit too long?”

“It might not take a hundred years, but it should be a few decades.” Jiang Lan lowered his head and replied.

A hundred years was indeed not necessary, but it was close to that.

“What are you planning to do?” Zhu Qing asked.

“Find a place to live like an ordinary person for a period of time.” Jiang Lan didn’t hide anything.

Zhu Qing frowned. She wasn’t sure what Jiang Lan wanted to do.

This matter was definitely started by Jiang Lan.

“Master, let us go.” Ao Longyu came to Zhu Qing and said softly.

“Your personality has become so soft after marriage.” Zhu Qing looked at Ao Longyu and did not know what to say.

Not only had her personality become soft, she had also become naughty.

She would steal her item and also kick her pet who had taken her shoes.

She turned a little domineering.

However, she did not hate such a Xiao Yu. It could be said that she was very likable.

“Master is the one that spoiled me,” said Ao Longyu.

“Me?” Zhu Qing laughed angrily.

Shouldn’t it be Jiang Lan?

She suddenly felt that letting Xiao Yu marry Jiang Lan was indeed the right choice.

She did not marry the wrong person.

However, leaving the mountain was not a small matter, especially since it was for nearly a hundred years.

This matter was not up to her to decide.

“Does your master agree?” Zhu Qing looked at Jiang Lan.

“Master has agreed,” Jiang Lan replied.

Indeed, her Senior Brother was so willful. If Senior Sister Miao Yue found out, she would definitely go to the Ninth Summit to criticize him.

He did not care about anything and did not ask the other summit leaders. He just allowed his disciple to do whatever they wanted.

“It’s a very serious matter for Xiao Yu to leave the mountain for a few decades.” Zhu Qing looked at Jiang Lan and said.

“Therefore, I need to discuss this with the summit leaders.

You don’t have to worry too much. They will probably agree to let you two go down the mountain.

But you two have to go through the normal process.

This is to prevent yourselves from being supervised when you two return.”

“Alright.” Jiang Lan nodded.

This was a natural matter. It was only his master who did not care about anything and let them go down the mountain.

He would then bear the responsibility alone.

It was naturally good to go down the mountain through the proper procedures instead of being found midway.

After that, Zhu Qing called for the other summit leaders to head to the Kunlun Main Hall.

A moment later.

The Summit Leaders of the First, Second, Third, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, and Ninth Summits all appeared in the Kunlun Main Hall.

“Junior Sister, what’s the matter?” Second Summit’s Liu Jing looked at Zhu Qing and asked.

There must be a reason for a summit leader to suddenly call for a meeting.

No one would start a meeting for no reason.

“Xiao Yu is going down the mountain with Jiang Lan for about a hundred years.

I need the opinions of all of you,” Zhu Qing said directly.

Then, the others looked at Mo Zhengdong.

“I agree,” said Mo Zhengdong.

The others :”…”

However, no one paid much attention to it and started to ask about it.

“A hundred years? Why do they need a hundred years to leave the mountain?” Jiu Zhongtian was curious.

“To make children?” Miao Yue’s voice carried a smile.

It felt possible.

“They said that it was to experience the life of an ordinary person,” Zhu Qing said.

“Is it to enter the world to comprehend the Dao?” Chen Xi felt that this was more likely the case.

“Probably.” Zhu Qing was not sure.

“Then let’s vote.” Miao Yue looked at everyone and said.

“There are seven people. The minority will obey the majority. I will be the first to express my opinion. I agree.”

“I agree,” Mo Zhengdong said.

“Me too,” said Zhu Qing.

“You guys are pretty willful,” Jiu Zhongtian said while drinking.

He was in no hurry to express his stance.

“Why would Junior Sister Miao Yue agree?” Liu Jing looked at Miao Yue and asked.

He understood Mo Zhengdong and Zhu Qing. After all, it was impossible for the two masters to not let their disciples leave the mountain. However, it was strange that Miao Yue would agree.

“Because I like Jiang Lan.” Miao Yue said.

“Then what do you think, Senior Brother Feng?” Liu Jing looked at First Summit’s Feng Yixiao.

“Why don’t you ask the Sect Master?” Feng Yixiao suddenly asked.

Liu Jing nodded slightly and contacted the Sect Master.

There was originally no need to contact the Sect Master regarding this matter, but Liu Jing sensed something strange, and Feng Yixiao also sensed it.

Therefore, asking the Sect Master might give him an answer.

A moment later, a voice came from the sky.

“Let them be.”

This was the Sect Master’s voice.

Liu Jing did not say anything else. Under normal circumstances, the Sect Master would not express his stance and let them make their own decisions.

At this moment, the Sect Master suddenly expressed his stance, which meant that he had to let the two of them leave the mountain.

Sure enough, they had other reasons for going down the mountain.

“Then it’s decided,” Liu Jing said.

This time, everyone felt something was strange. The Sect Master actually personally expressed his opinion.

It seemed like there was a reason.

They might not investigate what it was exactly, but they would remember.

Mo Zhengdong didn’t pay much attention to it. There was no need to hide anything anymore.

In the afternoon.

Jiang Lan bade farewell to Zhu Qing and left the Third Summit.

After this, he was going to leave Kunlun.

“Junior Brother, are you really not bringing the vegetative egg with you?” Xiao Yu asked Jiang Lan on the way.

If they didn’t bring the vegetative egg with them, she felt like it was going to die in the courtyard.

“There’s no need.” Jiang Lan held Xiao Yu’s hand and explained.

“Tell the Eighth Prince and the others later to help water it when they have time.

There won’t be any problems.”

“That’s true. Ao Man has nothing to do anyway. It’s fine to let him water it for a hundred years.” Xiao Yu nodded, feeling that this was very suitable.

At the old wine tavern.

“What? Sister and Brother-in-law are going out? Where are you two going?”

The Eighth Prince was shocked.

That wouldn’t do. His sister and brother-in-law were his backers in Kunlun.

Wouldn’t he have to keep a low profile after they went out?

If the Kunlun Goddess was not in Kunlun, as her younger brother, he did not dare to be too arrogant.

“That’s right. Why does Big Brother suddenly want to leave? You haven’t taught me how to chase after Hong Ya.” The youth was also reluctant.

“How long are Big Brother and Big Sister going out for?” Yan Xiyun didn’t really care.

She went out every year to search someone from her own race.

However, she couldn’t find it even after searching for hundreds of years.

Hong Ya was just wiping her cup. She didn’t ask.

After all, they were not very familiar with each other.

“We don’t know where to go either.” Xiao Yu shook her head.

They hadn’t researched this yet, but she wasn’t worried, because her Junior Brother would find a good place.

“Brother-in-law, can you tell us when you find a place? We can also send some wild animals over,” the Eighth Prince said to Jiang Lan.

“It’s not suitable.” Jiang Lan shook his head.

“This time, it’s different from before. Furthermore, you better be careful during this period.

Sometimes, saying certain names won’t have any effect.”

The Eighth Prince was shocked. He understood what his brother-in-law meant. In other words, even if he said his name this time, he would not be able to contact his brother-in-law.

Why then?

Why did his brother-in-law have to live an ordinary life?

It was as if he really wanted to be an ordinary person.

“What if we meet Big Brother and Big Sister?” Yan Xiyun suddenly asked.

Jiang Lan and Xiao Yu looked over.

It was not impossible to discover them. Yan Xiyun would always be in the maze forest. No one knew where she would go, so there was a certain chance of encountering her.

After all, Jiang Lan had no intention of going too far.

They would still be in Kunlun’s territory, but at the same time, there were many cities in Kunlun.

It was not easy to encounter them either.

“Then it just means we met,” Jiang Lan replied.

This was nothing.

“Am I going to be an uncle in a hundred years?” The youth asked.

“Why is it you?” The Eighth Prince glared at the youth.

“I’m the uncle, alright? I’m related to my sister by blood.

I am my sister’s biological brother.”

“I also treat Big Brother and Big Sister as biological brothers and sisters. Why can’t I be one?” The youth refuted.

“I’ve never seen such a thick-skinned human. Why aren’t you as thick-skinned as you were when you faceHong Ya? You didn’t refute anything she said.”

“Other than not liking me, what’s wrong with Hong Ya?”

“…”

Jiang Lan and Xiao Yu exchanged glances before leaving.

They were going to the next stop.

A place that belonged to the two of them, their home for the next hundred years.

They walked out of the inn and towards the main road, disappearing from the Eighth Prince’s sight.

After Jiang Lan and Ao Longyu left.

Mo Zhengdong stood at the peak of the Ninth Summit and looked outside Kunlun.

The sun was setting.

“When he comes back, it might be different. It’s just—”

He looked up at the sky, but it was time for the sky to change.

He wondered how many more years more could the peace last.

Would it be able to last until his disciple returned?

After entering the sect for more than 850 years, his only disciple finally left the mountain to train. For a moment, he was really not used to it.

He recalled that in the past, Jiang Lan had said that he was unwilling to leave the mountain no matter what.

Times have changed.

All the disciples of the Ninth Summit have gone down the mountain to train.
