Star Odyssey - Chapter 1659
Elder Jiu Shen emerged.
Lu Yin had asked the powerhouse to take him to Daynight Flowzone, and Elder Jiu Shen had disappeared as soon as they had arrived. The elder should have already left and gone back to the Cosmic Sect by this point, but Lu Yin was certain that the man would stick around to see how things proceeded.
“Young man, nicely handled. You acted as though you were intending to deal with the Sword Sect, even forcing them to send their elite disciples away, but you were actually planning on attacking the Daynight clan, and you actually managed to successfully surprise the Daynight clan,” Elder Jiu Shen exclaimed.
Lu Yin replied, “Senior, this isn’t a good time for us to discuss this matter. Could you help me out? My life will constantly be threatened as long as Nightking Dijiang is alive.”
“You want me to go after Nightking Dijiang?” Elder Jiu Shen sneered. “Impossible. Helping you remove him would destroy the balance within the Fifth Mainland. Why else do you think the old fellows in the Neoverse haven’t attacked the Innerverse already? We all have an understanding among each other, and whoever acts to destroy the existing balance will have to pay.”
Lu Yin pursed his lips. “Nobody will know it was you.”
Elder Jiu Shen retorted, “Stop lying to yourself. They will definitely find out.”
Lu Yin spoke in a helpless manner, “Well then, I’ll head on in.”
Elder Jiu Shen frowned. “Why would you go?”
“I want to look for an inheritance, as well as Nightking Dijiang.’
“Do you want to die? That’s the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins and anyone who doesn’t belong to the Celestial Frost Sect will end up in tremendous danger upon entering. I don’t want to go in, so stop thinking about gaining some kind of inheritance from this place as it’s basically impossible. What kind of place do you think the Celestial Frost Sect is?” Elder Jiu Shen reprimanded.
Lu Yin was very clear on just exactly what the Celestial Frost Sect was. They were one of the Perennial World’s four ruling powers, making them one of the leaders in the rebellion against the Lu family. The sect had both Progenitors and Semi-Progenitors, and the Celestial Frost Sect was capable of easily defeating the Fifth Mainland on its own.
The Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins were absolutely dangerous, and people who were ignorant of the sect would naturally rush in immediately to search for inheritances. However, Lu Yin knew how dangerous that place would be, and he might not go there if he were alone. However… he glanced over at Elder Jiu Shen.
Elder Jiu Shen saw Lu Yin’s glance, and the elder’s brows shot up in fury. “How dare you try to manipulate me?”
Lu Yin sincerely replied, “What are you talking about, Senior? How could I dare try to manipulate you?”
Elder Jiu Shen ground his teeth. “Don’t assume I don’t know your plan. Stop dreaming! I won’t go there.”
“Senior, do you know who is currently standing at the top of that world? It’s the Celestial Frost Sect,” Lu Yin solemnly stated.
Elder Jiu Shen’s eyes narrowed. He knew exactly what Lu Yin was referring to.
“The Celestial Frost Sect has both Progenitors and Semi-Progenitors,” Lu Yin continued to explain. He pointed at the ruins of the Celestial Frost Sect. “It’s true that it’s definitely a dangerous place, but it also contains opportunities for you to become a Semi-Progenitor. The Celestial Frost Sect left the Fifth Mainland in a rush, and nobody knows what they may have left behind. Senior, think about it—why else would Nightking Dijiang rush in there instead of trying to escape? It means that there’s inheritance in there that will help the Daynight clan survive.”
Elder Jiu Shen’s eyes lit up as he looked out at the ruins.
“I won’t force you if you don’t want to go, but I want to take this chance. Maybe I’ll be able to become an Envoy in there or even experience the inner world that’s unique to Semi-Progenitors,” Lu Yin shouted as he shot towards the ruins.
Elder Jiu Shen was genuinely tempted. His eyes flashed, and he chided himself for growing more and more timid with age. These ruins were definitely a dangerous place, but if he could obtain an opportunity to become a Semi-Progenitor, why would he not take such a risk?
How many life and death situations had he survived from the day since he had first started cultivating? But he had become more timid with the years. He stepped forward and stood next to Lu Yin. “You possess the Cosmic Sect’s greatest treasure, so nothing can happen to you. I’ll go along with you, and you should be able to stay alive.”
Lu Yin sighed in relief. “Thank you, Senior.”
He then ordered the colossal giants and the Lu Elite Troops to remain outside of the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins before entering together with Elder Jiu Shen.
Meanwhile, in the Daynight clan’s ancestral grounds, Nightqueen Yanqing uploaded a video of Nightking Dijiang entering the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins onto the network and did her best to spread news of the ruins’ appearance. She also leaked some information regarding the Celestial Frost Sect to lure in more people.
She believed that the Great Eastern Alliance had more enemies than allies in the universe, especially when considering major forces like the Sword Sect.
As the news about the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins spread, the whole universe became excited.
Along with the release of information regarding the Celestial Frost Sect, there was talk concerning the old Celestial Frost Flowzone. There were rumors that Daynight Flowzone had once been known as Celestial Frost Flowzone.
Celestial Frost Flowzone had once controlled the entire region while the Daynight clan had only been one of the sect’s followers.
Liu Qianjue stared at the video in shock. “The Celestial Frost Sect? Those are the ruins of the Celestial Frost Sect! The Daynight clan truly hid themselves very well! I can’t believe that they managed to conceal the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins.”
Elder Lianxin was confused. “Sect Master, was Daynight Flowzone truly once known as Celestial Frost Flowzone?”
She was much younger than Liu Qianjue and did not know much regarding the Fifth Mainland’s secrets, so she naturally knew almost nothing about the Celestial Frost Sect. Not many people in the entire Fifth Mainland knew about the Celestial Frost Sect.
Liu Qianjue solemnly answered, “Long ago, the Celestial Frost Sect left when the Daosource Sect was destroyed during the war between the Fifth and Sixth Mainlands. Before they left, the Celestial Frost Sect controlled the entire Daynight Flowzone and was one of the most powerful sects in the Fifth Mainland. They had both Progenitors and Semi-Progenitors, and the Daynight clan was merely one of their followers.”
“Why would the Celestial Frost Sect have remained in the Innerverse if they were so powerful?” Elder Lianxin asked.
“I’m not sure either.”
“Many people will definitely go explore the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins,” Elder Lianxin said.
Elder Li suddenly arrived. “Sect Master, should we ask our disciples to return?”
Liu Qianjue nodded. “Have them return.”
Elder Li’s voice grew cold. “Lu Yin is so devious! He pretended to cooperate with the Sixth Mainland in order to deal with us, but the whole time, he was actually planning an attack on the Daynight clan!”
Liu Qianjue remained silent. Everyone had been deceived by Lu Yin. The youth was truly not dumb enough to collude with the Sixth Mainland, and he had even intentionally taunted the Sword Sect during his match with Liu Tianmu.
Lu Yin was just too cunning.
“Sect Master, since the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins have appeared, can our disciples go there to search for inheritances?” Elder Li asked.
Liu Qianjue answered, “That’s entirely up to fate. They can go if they wish.”
“Understood,” Elder Li agreed. Even the Sword Sect’s elders wanted to go, as those ruins were once the Celestial Frost Sect, a powerful sect that the Daynight clan had followed in the past. If anyone managed to discover anything in that place, they would be able to castly increase their own strength.
The Divine Grade Hall was also discussing the Celestial Frost Sect, as well as Lu Yin’s attack on the Daynight clan. In the end, they made a decision similar to the Sword Sect’s, which was to allow their disciples to explore the ruins. However, they specifically did not encourage them to do so, as the ruins were a very dangerous place. If not, Nightking Dijiang would have never revealed the place.
The Daynight patriarch was apparently quite confident that he would become capable of defeating even the Great Eastern Alliance after gaining whatever it was in the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins, but nobody knew his exact plan.
Bai Shui watched the video with great excitement from a planet within Daynight Flowzone. The Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins had finally appeared! Her ancestor’s wish had finally come true.
Her daughter, Bai Xiaodie, was ten years old and was standing next to Bai Shui.
“Are we going there?” Bai Xiaodie asked timidly.
Bai Shui closed the video and patted her daughter’s head. She lovingly replied, “Mum will be going, but you’ll stay here.”
Bai Xiaodie pouted. “I want to go too! There’s bad people there.”
Bai Shui smiled. “That’s my hometown. There are no bad people there.”
“There’s bad people there!” Bai Xiaodie stubbornly insisted. She was normally a very obedient child, but this time, she refused to let Bai Shui leave.
Bai Shui thought for a moment, and then switched her gadget back on. She found a video of Lu Yin. “Xiaodie, do you remember him?”
Bai Xiaodie blinked as she looked at Lu Yin’s video. Finally, she managed to remember. “I remember him, but it’s been a long time.”
Bai Shui smiled. “That brother is there too. He saved us before, so don’t worry. He’ll protect me this time as well.”
Bai Xiaodie bowed her head and tugged at Bai Shui’s shirt.
Bai Shui soon left the planet. She turned back to gaze longingly at Bai Xiaodie for a moment before looking towards the Daynight clan. “Even if I die, I still have to at least try! Don’t blame me, Xiaodie.”
She started moving towards the Daynight clan.
The news regarding the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins shocked the entire universe, and some people naturally wanted to visit the ruins to search for inheritances. Even disciples from the Sword Sect and the Divine Grade Hall were interested, let alone independent cultivators.
The Daynight clan had been completely destroyed by the Great Eastern Alliance, and half of the Nightking clan members had been killed. All of the survivors, such as Nightqueen Yanqing and Nightking Gu, were currently being held captive.
Nightqueen Yanqing had been injured heavily, and a giant stood behind her, ready to crush her if she tried doing anything.
She looked out at the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins with hope. While she did not know why their patriarch had gone to that place, hope would remain as long as he remained alive.
Nightking Yuanjing had been injured by the Lu Elite Troops and was lying on the ground. At this moment, the Daynight clan could only set their hope on Nightking Dijiang.
The moment Lu Yin entered the ruins, the first thing he felt was a tremendous amount of star energy. Cultivating in this place would be much faster than cultivating in the Innerverse, or even the Neoverse.
He looked up at the sky and glanced around. He was surrounded by mountains, and bestial roars continuously echoed out in the distance. A bit further away, there were some indistinct buildings, which showed the location of the Celestial Frost Sect.
A shadow appeared above him as a beast appeared. An Enlighter realm beast had tried to attack Lu Yin, but it was flung away by a mere glance from Elder Jiu Shen.
As soon as any of the beasts left the Celestial Frost Sect’s ruins, they were all killed by the colossal giants waiting outside.
