Chapter 1779: Going Separate Ways
In the blink of an eye, three days had already passed. Jian Chen’s face suddenly changed as he was guiding everyone in the Bright Moon Divine Hall. After bidding farewell to them all, he directly left the divine hall and appeared in the outside world.
Fairy Hao Yue’s white clothes ruffled outside the Bright Moon Divine Hall. Her black hair draped down her back, and her face was flawless. She stood outside the divine hall indifferently as she gave off a sacred presence.
She seemed just like an otherworldly goddess that had transcended mortal affairs.
“You’ve fully recovered?” Jian Chen said indifferently as he calmly gazed at fairy Hao Yue.
Fairy Hao Yue stared at Jian Chen and did not reply immediately. However, after a moment of silence, she replied with the same type of calmness, “Yep! I’ve fully recovered, except I haven’t fully recovered my strength. I’ve used up everything in Duanmu’s Space Ring that would help me regain my strength and create my body. The remaining items all belong to you. There are still a few precious items in there.” With that, fairy Hao Yue tossed Godking Duanmu’s Space Ring to Jian Chen.
Jian Chen did not hold back. He directly extended his hand and caught the Space Ring. He played around with it in his hand. He did not immediately check the contents.
Fairy Hao Yue continued, “Duanmu’s legacy isn’t in there. There’s nothing that’s related to a cultivation method in there. Duanmu’s true legacy must be the sword.”
“Ling Hougong has already obtained the golden flying sword. He really is quite lucky, except he has now offended a vice leader of the Empyrean Demon Cult, Huai An,” Jian Chen sighed gently. He really did not know whether it was worth it for Ling Hougong to make a decision like that.
“Jian Chen, what do you plan on doing next?” Fairy Hao Yue asked.
After a moment of silence, Jian Chen replied, “I plan on returning to the Dong’an province and gain a footing there for now. That way, I can provide a safe cultivation environment for the people who came up with me from the lower world.” At this moment, Jian Chen seemed to think of something, “Oh right, I’ve confirmed where we are currently located. We are on the Cloud Plane of the forty-nine great planes. I wonder how distant your Moon God Hall is.”
“The Cloud Plane,” fairy Hao Yue murmured. She immediately frowned, and after a moment of silence, she said, “The Moon God Hall is on the Polar Ice Plane that one of the seven Grand Exalts, the Ice Goddess, oversees. It’s extremely distant from the Cloud Plane, and I’ll have to cross through over a dozen planes in total to reach there. The only way back is through a plane-level teleportation formation. The costs to use them was nothing to me in the past, but it’s an astronomical figure to us now.” Fairy Hao Yue furrowed her brows tightly.
With a wave of his hand, Jian Chen took out the remaining block of high grade divine crystal he possessed without any hesitation. He said to her, “Take this block of divine crystal. I only have this block and a few smaller pieces.”
Fairy Hao Yue immediately became stunned when she saw the block of high grade divine crystals before breaking out into laughter. She said to Jian Chen, “If you use this single block, it’ll be nowhere near enough to make it to even the closest plane. Even if you take out a hundred times that amount, it won’t be enough.”
“What!? Using a teleportation formation costs so much?” Jian Chen was the one to be shocked now. A block of high grade divine crystal was a rather large sum to him already, yet it was not even enough to use a teleportation formation.
“Using plane-level teleportation formations requires five-colored divine crystals. Your block is equivalent to one million standard high grade divine crystals. If you convert them into supreme quality divine crystals, it’ll only be ten thousand standard size divine crystals, yet a one-colored divine crystal is worth a hundred times more than a high grade divine crystal as well. As a result, your block of divine crystal is only worth a hundred standard one-colored divine crystals.”
“From the one-colored divine crystals to the five-colored divine crystals, each additional color increases its value by tenfold. Your block of divine crystal is worth a standard three-color divine crystal.”
Jian Chen also frowned. Only now did he understand that it was actually so expensive to use a plane-level teleportation formation.
Fairy Hao Yue also became worried, “Only Primordial realm experts possess colored divine crystals. Looks like I won’t be able to return to the Polar Ice Plane immediately. I wonder how my father is doing.”
“Your worry is unneeded right now. Although I have no idea what your father is facing, you won’t be of any help at all even if you hurry over immediately with your current strength,” said Jian Chen.
Fairy Hao Yue nodded, “You’re right. I am indeed too weak. I might even end up dead on the way back. My priority right now is to restore my strength.” After making up her mind, fairy Hao Yue’s gaze became determined. At that moment, her presence underwent a tremendous change as well.
Jian Chen’s eyes narrowed as he stared at fairy Hao Yue with some surprise. At that moment, he could suddenly feel a chilling presence from fairy Hao Yue. It had even given him the impression that even though fairy Hao Yue was only a late God, she could crush him like an ant, where he would not be able to fight back at all.
“She really is a Primordial realm expert,” Jian Chen thought as his gaze towards fairy Hao Yue changed as well.
“I need to go restore my strength. Jian Chen, take this jade talisman with you. Whenever you encounter danger, just crush the talisman, and I’ll head over as soon as possible. Of course, it’s best that you use it after five years have passed from now,” fairy Hao Yue passed a pure-white token to Jian Chen before directly leaving.
She wanted to try her own luck to restore her strength back to her peak as soon as possible.
Jian Chen watched fairy Hao Yue leave. He finally looked at the token in his hand after she had completely left. The token was snow-white and made from precious jade. A small moon was sculpted onto it. Jian Chen could sense an imprint of fairy Hao Yue’s soul within the small moon.
Jian Chen put the token away and left the place with the Bright Moon Divine Hall. After gaining his bearings, he directly flew towards the Dong’an province.
As all the treasures of Godking Duanmu’s dwelling had been taken away, the disturbances its appearance had caused gradually died down. The Overgods that had gathered in the dwelling left one by one as well.
However, there was still a large group of people gathered within the dwelling as they searched with determination. There were many Origin realm cultivators as well as a few Deities and Gods. They combed through every inch of the dwelling seriously in hopes of an unexpected blessing.
There were also a few people who comprehended the Laws of the Sword that gathered in the second stone hut aside from them, studying the slashes left behind by Godking Duanmu.
People poured in and out of the great city gates of the provincial city of the Dong’an province. Luxurious carriages drawn by rare beasts rolled along quickly.
