Chapter 514: Azure Yang Token
“So the Azure Yang Lord is one of the 72 Divine Lords of the Yang God Empyrean Heaven…”
The 72 titles of Divine Lord were not casual title conferments. According to the handwritten book, in primordial times, after the chaotic universe came to an end, the Ancestor Gods who controlled the Heavenly Dao were also annihilated.
And at that moment, the remaining Heavenly Dao laws left in the 12 Empyrean Heavens formed their own supreme Dao Marks without any restrictions from the Ancestor Gods.
In the Yang God Empyrean Heavens, there were 72 supreme Dao Marks that contained Great Dao laws.
Each supreme Dao Mark represented a certain Dao, and these Dao Marks were distributed to 72 Divine Lords. They became a Royal Seal that was the symbol and authority of a Divine Lord!
Only by controlling a Divine Lord Royal Seal would one truly be a member of the 72 Divine Lords!
The Divine Lord Royal Seal was extremely important for a Divine Lord. It was not only a symbol of their status, it was also a symbol of their power. A true Divine Lord would refine the Divine Lord Royal Seal into his body. He would then use his own blood to smelt it, allowing him to obtain great power from the Divine Lord Royal Seal.
Since ancient times, weal and woe came in pairs, so for such a powerful Divine Lord Royal Seal, there were naturally countless numbers of warriors who coveted it. Hence, in the Yang God Empyrean Heaven, it was not an easy task to secure one’s position as a Divine Lord. It could invite challenges and assassinations from every direction.
“Who knew that the Azure Yang Lord was a top figure in the Yang God Empyrean Heaven.”
Although the book did not describe it in detail, Yi Yun did not need to think too much to know that every single one of the 12 Empyrean Heavens was filled with experts. They far exceeded the world the Tian Yuan world resided in.
Yi Yun now realised that the Pure Yang Sword Palace’s owner and the bronze giant he saw in an illusion were probably from one of the 12 Empyrean Heavens.
When Yi Yun flipped to the last page, he saw a token embedded in the book. There were the words “Azure Yang” on the front of the token, and the word “Token” on the back.
Yi Yun picked the token up. It was heavy and it felt cold. The material it was made from was neither metal nor jade. Yi Yun had never seen a material like it before. Maybe it came from the 12 Empyrean Heavens.
After removing the token, Yi Yun looked at the ancient book. There was a paragraph of text written where the token was embedded.
“Azure Yang Token. After refining it, one can enter the Azure Yang Palace and God Advent Tower freely!”
Yi Yun’s eyes lit up. This token had such an effect, and it was equivalent to this grand hall’s key.
With the token in his hand, Yi Yun could feel an energy fluctuation being emitted by the token. This fluctuation resonated with the arrays that maintained the grand hall.
“I see, with the token, I can control the arrays in this grand hall up to a certain extent.”
Yi Yun immediately understood it based on his senses.
“Yi Yun, when mighty ancient figures create an abode, they would usually set up a core item. Refining it would be equivalent to becoming half of the abode’s owner. You should refine this Azure Yang token.” Lin Xintong said while standing beside Yi Yun.
The Azure Yang Palace was one of the core spots in the Great Empress mystic realm. Just being able to enter it freely made the token’s value unimaginable. If it was taken out of the mystic realm, all the factions in the Tian Yuan world would covet it. If they knew that it was a token left behind by one of the 12 Empyrean Heavens’ Divine Lord, they would vie for it at all costs. The 12 Empyrean Heavens was a mysterious and distant existence to the Tian Yuan world’s factions.
Of course, Lin Xintong wanted such a treasure too. But she knew that it was with all of Yi Yun’s efforts that she had reached this level alive and allowed her to see the core of the God Advent Tower.
Ignoring the token, even if all the opportunities here were given to Yi Yun, she felt that it would only be right. Yi Yun had saved her life several times.
Besides, Lin Xintong had a special feeling towards Yi Yun. Lin Xintong felt that Yi Yun’s obtaining an opportunity was like her obtaining it herself.
“Oh, alright… We can use it together when the time comes.”
After Yi Yun spoke, he circulated his Yuan Qi and imprinted his blood and Qi onto the token. This way, Yi Yun and the token had a blood connection with each other.
As long as he wished, he could emanate his perception throughout the Azure Yang Palace and feel every trace of the energy fluctuations in the grand hall.
Yi Yun said, “The Azure Yang Lord not only left a handwritten book on the pillar. The token can also control the grand hall, allowing free access into the God Advent Tower. It looks like his relationship with the Great Empress was not a simple one.”
After reading the book, Yi Yun made some guesses. Could it be that the reason why nothing was heard about the ancient Great Empress was because she had gone to the 12 Empyrean Heavens?
No one could tell what had precisely happened when a long time had passed.
After the token was put away by Yi Yun, the array in the grand hall suddenly activated, causing a door of light to appear.
Yi Yun and Lin Xintong looked at each other. Previously, the cold voice had said that they could enter three grand halls. Maybe what lied beyond the door of light was the second one.
Yi Yun and Lin Xintong walked through the door of light hand in hand. They saw a flash of light in front of their eyes before they saw the scene change.
There was a small bridge over flowing waters and, a small building in the woods. Everything was covered in snow. It was like a crystalline paradise.
There were cups placed on a tea table and a zither placed inside a pavilion made it seem like someone still lived here. It was as if the owner had just temporarily left.
Yi Yun had the same feeling at the beginning, but very quickly, he realized there was an energy fluctuation. The scene before his eyes had been fixed on to a particular moment forever by an array.
“After the storm settles, let us stay here together for the rest of our lives.” Yi Yun saw a letter beside the zither.
The ink on it seemed like it had just been written. Even though there was no name was written on it, they could tell from the handwriting that it was left behind by the Azure Yang Lord.
“It looks like it was indeed as I suspected. Senior Azure Yang Lord should be senior Great Empress’ dual cultivation partner!”
Yi Yun recalled the words left behind by the Azure Yang Lord on the pillar, “The Azure Rainbow pierces the Blood Moon, Ice Cold Seals God Abyss”.
The first line of the poem referred to the Azure Yang Lord himself, and the second half referred to the ancient Great Empress.
As for the Great Empress mystic realm, it was most likely jointly created by the ancient Great Empress and the Azure Yang Lord.
“What a good pair of immortal-like partners… ”
Lin Xintong gently brushed her hand across the zither as a strange light flashed in her eyes.
They both had naturally terminated meridians, and she was successor designate. So although Lin Xintong and the ancient Great Empress had never made contact, there was an inexplicable sense of affection.
As she touched the zither, it was as if she could see the woman in solitude playing the zither in the snow. As for the Azure Yang Lord, he was sitting by her side at the tea table, drinking wine while enjoying the music.
Such a life was indeed enviable.
Lin Xintong’s heart could not help but look forward to this as she involuntarily glanced at Yi Yun.
“Looking at this letter, senior Azure Yang Lord and the ancient Great Empress were planning to return, but they never did. I wonder what they encountered.”
Yi Yun frowned slightly. For something that figures at the level of the Azure Yang Lord and the ancient Great Empress could not settle, to the point of never returning, what had really happened probably far exceeded his imagination.
In the small building, everything was fresh and elegant. Even the flower vases were blooming with winter plums.
Yi Yun and Lin Xintong walked lightly in the building out of respect for the ancient Great Empress and the Azure Yang Lord. They did not want to disturb anything in the building.
“Oh? Over there!” Lin Xintong pointed. In the Great Empress’ room, there was a simple and minimalistic book shelf.
It was easy to see everything in the building at a glance and there was nothing special. The bookshelf was filled with jade scrolls.
Yi Yun glanced at Lin Xintong and noticed the usually indifferent Lin Xintong breathing heavier. He knew that she could not feel calm at that moment.
She had shouldered too many things due to her naturally terminated meridians. She vowed to join her terminated meridians up and reverse her fate. And now, on the bookshelf, she might be able to find a hint of that chance. No matter how indifferent she was, she could not help but feel agitated at that moment.
At this instant, she suddenly felt her other hand being covered by another hand.
Lin Xintong glanced at Yi Yun as he whispered, “We have already reached this point. We will definitely find the method to join up terminated meridians left behind by the ancient Great Empress. It’s just a matter of time.”
Lin Xintong nodded as she gently touched the jade scrolls on the bookshelf. The books and jade scrolls were not covered with a single speck of dust. It was as if someone had frequently cleaned them.
