Wu Xie was Ye Chaomu’s master, also the publicly known number one expert of the Celestial King Province. Even within the entire Western Desert, he could still be considered an extremely important individual. Of course, Xiang Shaoyun learned all that from his father. He was unaware of whether it was the actual truth.
Ye Chaomu nodded.”He has known of this long ago.”
“Oh, did he say anything about it?” Xiang Shaoyun blanked out slightly.
“What can he say? Apart from the occasional times he comes to teach me some techniques, he is almost always absent, always acting all mysterious,” said Ye Chaomu, who did not seem to care much about her master.
It left Xiang Shaoyun speechless.
“Enough about all that. Big brother, have you investigated Di Batian’s latest situation?” Ye Chaomu asked.
Xiang Shaoyun shook his head. “No.”
He had not been to the Celestial King Province for many years, so he did not have the latest updates regarding the Ziling Sect and Di Batian.
Ye Chaomu said, “Di Batian changed the Ziling Sect’s name to Di Sect two years ago. He has been recruiting numerous experts, creating a sect that is no weaker than the Ziling Sect at its peak. Additionally, his personal strength has also soared. Defeating him won’t be easy.”
“Looks like that dog has managed to grow decently,” said Xiang Shaoyun with a sinister look in his eyes.
“But you don’t have to be too worried. I brought two super experts with me. They will be able to kill Di Batian,” said Ye Chaomu confidently.
“Um. The two of us can accomplish anything by working together,” said Xiang Shaoyun confidently.
After taking several detours, they finally started approaching the Celestial King Province. Each province was made up of hundreds of cities. Thus, each province was incomparably vast. Without teleportation formations, one would probably take years to traverse a single province.
Xiang Shaoyun’s group did not even have the chance to rest. They had traveled day and night, trying to reach the Celestial King Province at the fastest speed possible. After reaching the Celestial King Province, they started heading for the Ziling Sect, or to be precise, the Di Sect.
They were all forced to conceal their whereabouts and appearances, as they did not want to alert their enemies. Otherwise, their operation would probably fail when success was within sight.
Time pa.s.sed, and one day, they arrived at a place called the Buried Monarch Mountain.
The Buried Monarch Mountain was, in actuality, an ancient mountain range that was extremely expansive. It was much larger than the Hundred Beasts Mountain Range. Countless demonic beasts resided here, and numerous devilish plants could be found as well. Very few people dared to casually enter the Buried Monarch Mountain.
This place also wasn’t that far from the Di Sect. In fact, after going around the mountain range, one would be able to reach the sect. One could even say that the Buried Monarch Mountain fell within the Di Sect’s sphere of influence.
It was rumored that an ultimate monarch was buried in the mountain range and that his inheritance could be found here, hence how the range came to be known as the Buried Monarch Mountain.
Many had explored the Buried Monarch Mountain over the years, but no one had ever gotten the so-called inheritance. Was there really an inheritance here? Only Xiang Shaoyun knew the answer.
Leading Ye Chaomu and the rest, he headed straight for a certain spot in the completely uninhabited mountain range. It was the same place he had accidentally reached during his childhood, the place where he had obtained the Overlord’s inheritance.
He was now sure that he was the Overlord’s reincarnation. Knowing that, he had to return and reclaim all that was his. That was his only way of increasing his combat strength as much as he could in the shortest time possible, and it was also the source of his confidence in successfully taking his revenge.
Ye Chaomu had a.s.sumed that Xiang Shaoyun was trying to reach the Ziling Sect by taking a detour, but the more they traveled, the more unlikely that seemed to be the case. She finally asked, “Big brother, why did we come here?”
“I’m here to take back what was once mine. I need you guys to stand guard for me when I’m doing so,” said Xiang Shaoyun.
Ye Chaomu nodded and asked no other questions. As Xiang Shaoyun entered deeper into the mountain range, they encountered more and more beasts. There were also the occasional devilish plant attacks. One could say that danger came in all shapes and forms in the Buried Monarch Mountain.
If the group wasn’t strong enough, they would have a hard time taking even a step forward. Xiang Shaoyun couldn’t even imagine how he had reached the place when he was a child.
When they neared their destination, they sensed a different group of people stationed not far ahead.
Xiang Shaoyun became anxious at the possibility that his previous life’s inheritance had been discovered by someone else. He remembered that the place had been sealed alongside Big Black’s disappearance back then. n.o.body should be able to find his inheritance. Had some expert come searching for his inheritance?
They concealed their aura, and Ye Chaomu sent the middle-aged man following her to scout ahead. The middle-aged man moved like a gust of wind, then soon returned and whispered to her ear. He then resumed standing silently by her side.
Ye Chaomu said to Xiang Shaoyun, “Big brother, there are about 20 or 30 people ahead, and their cultivation realms are between the Dragon Ascension Realm and the Soul Foundation Realm. They seem to have discovered the entrance to a secret s.p.a.ce. They are sealing the surroundings while preparing to explore the secret s.p.a.ce.”
“Looks like the place I’m heading to has still been discovered. But it doesn’t matter. Even if they enter, they won’t find anything,” Xiang Shaoyun muttered to himself. “Let’s go over directly. If they are Di Sect members, just kill them all. If they are others, chasing them away will be enough.”
He considered the area as his personal territory. He did not need to skirt around others when he had enough strength at his side.
When they approached the mountain ridge ahead of them, someone appeared before them and shouted, “This place has been occupied by the Hong Clan. Everyone else should p.i.s.s off, or don’t blame us for being merciless.”
“Hong Clan? The same Hong Clan from Ziling City?” asked Xiang Shaoyun doubtfully.
“That’s right. It’s good that you know about our Hong Clan. Get lost. This is not the kind of place you can approach,” the person shouted again.
Xiang Shaoyun waved at the strong-ape and Aikai. He commanded with a sinister gleam in his eyes, “Kill them all. Leave n.o.body alive.”
Back then, the Hong Clan had received great care from Xiang Yangzhan. Their patriarch was even appointed the governor of Ziling City. But when Di Batian rose up in rebellion, the Hong Clan was the first to help him and kill the Ziling Sect loyalists. It was something Xiang Shaoyun had never forgotten.
At Xiang Shaoyun’s command, the strong-ape and Aikai charged out and instantly killed the two people standing in their way. The people blocking their way were merely Dragon Ascension Realm cultivators. They were nothing before Sovereigns.
The attack alarmed the Hong Clan members who were in the midst of exploration. They charged over and roared, “Who dares to challenge the Hong Clan?”
