When they walked out of the market, more and more people appeared around them. Most cultivators gathered in this place to keep an eye on the entrance to the ancient battlefield. Everyone who walked out of the site would bring the latest news.
However, when Bai Cailing and the rest of the members of the Jade Lake appeared, many people were startled. After all, the Jade Lake was the most powerful sect, which dominated the Tianxiang Celestial Realm. When the rest of the sects sent people to this place, the Jade Lake would also participate in this activity as the host of this continent. So people were not surprised by the arrival of the Jade Lake. But they were surprised to see Bai Cailing. Most people had only heard about the Holy Virgin of the Jade Lake in hearsay. The opportunities to see her so close up were quite rare.
Bai Cailing didn’t disappoint them. Her graceful temperament and beautiful face were very impressive. Even though she had given the position of the Holy Virgin to Jiang Hongyan, people still accepted her because of her extraordinary strength and appearance when she became the Holy Virgin again.
“I thought the Jade Lake would only send several deacons this time. I didn’t expect the Holy Virgin would be here. It is really a great honor for us to see her!
“Exactly! Seeing is believing! The Jade Lake’s Holy Virgin is perfect!”
“On the Heaven Continent, it is said the deacons and apprentices of the Jade Lake are beautiful! Now I know that not only are their apprentices beautiful, their Holy Virgin is also exceedingly beautiful!”
“Hey! Wait! Something is wrong! Why is there an old man in their team?”
All the people were exclaiming about Bai Cailing’s temperament and appearance when someone shouted in surprise. Then people noticed a frail old man in the team of the Jade Lake led by Bai Cailing. The point was that this old man was encircled by more than ten apprentices of the Jade Lake who treated him reverently. It was so confusing!
“Who is that old man? He is just at the Half-Celestial Stage. Why do those apprentices treat him so reverently?”
“I remember Yi Zhong, the young sovereign of the Divine Farmer Clan, was beaten up by an old man in the Jade Lake. It seems this is the old man!”
“Right! I also remember it because I watched the Recording Crystal Ball! It is indeed this old man who is Xu Que’s father!”
“Wow, he is Xu Que’s father!”
“Hah, hah, what you know is not the latest news. As far as I know, Xu Que’s father is the father-in-law of the Jade Lake’s Holy Virgin. The Holy Virgin will become that old man’s daughter-in-law soon!”
“Wait! Your words are confusing. Does it mean the Holy Virgin will marry Xu Que?”
“Exactly! It is said Xu Que’s father came to the Jade Lake to meet the Holy Virgin with a marriage certificate. Now, the apprentices of the Jade Lake treat him reverently, which means the Jade Lake has accepted this marriage!”
“Holy sh*t! This …”
People were shocked for this was totally unbelievable! No wonder an old man at the Half-Celestial Stage was being treated reverently by the Jade Lake. Bai Cailing also treated the old man with respect because she would become his daughter-in-law soon. However, Bai Cailing and the Jade Lake’s apprentices didn’t hear this discussion among the onlookers. While people were talking about Xu Que’s identity, they had stepped into the ancient battlefield.
Now, they were in a dark room that was filled with a faint blood smell. The smell was not fresh. It was a kind of blood smell that had existed for many years and could drive people crazy. In this room, people couldn’t help but imagine a scene of countless deities killing each other in ancient times.
“This is really an ominous place!” Xu Que couldn’t help but say at this moment. Even though they were not endangered, he could still feel his blood was frozen, which made him quite uncomfortable. Hearing that, Bai Cailing and the rest of the people also nodded their heads. This was not the first time they had come here. So they had already become accustomed to this place.
“Elder Xu, are you sure you want to go into this site? The deeper we go into this place, the more dangerous it will be. And there will be dangers even we don’t know about yet in it!” Bai Cailing asked as she looked at Xu Que worriedly.
Previously, they had come into this place together with the rest of the big sects. But they had failed to find the right path. Almost all of them could only wander around the perimeter of this place. They triggered a lot of restrictive spells, which killed many people. They had to leave this site empty-handed. Only Buttface and Duan Jiude managed to go deeper into this site and escape after obtaining an inheritance.
Now, the Divine Farmer Clan and the rest of the sects had forced Buttface and Duan Jiude to leave to save Liu Jingning. In this way, the Divine Farmer Clan and the rest of the sects could go into the depths of this ancient battlefield to find the place with inheritances by following the paths of Buttface and Duan Jiude.
“Don’t worry! I know what I am doing. When there is danger, please take care of yourself. I can protect myself!” Xu Que replied, nodding his head. However, his frail voice was not very convincing for those apprentices of the Jade Lake. Anyway, they would protect themselves first in any dangerous situation. Although Xu Que was a well-respected old man, they wouldn’t risk their lives to protect Xu Que.
Bai Cailing continued to walk forward when she knew Xu Que had made up his mind to go into the site. On their way, they saw a lot of cultivators who were exiting hurriedly. When they saw Bai Cailing and the rest of the apprentices of the Jade Lake, they would stop and greet them warmly. However, as they went deeper into this place, the cultivators who were exiting became more and more serious. At last, several cultivators, who were quite pale and with blood on their lips, rushed out in a hurry. Apparently, they had been seriously wounded.
“Are you…from the Jade Lake?” One of them, who recognized Bai Cailing, asked in surprise. Then another person also said, “Holy Virgin, you’d better stay out of that place. The inheritances have been divided up. Now, only massacre is left in there!”
“What? What happened?” Hearing that, Bai Cailing asked immediately. They had come here to find out what the deities’ inheritances were. They would try to obtain them if they got a chance. Now, someone had told them that the inheritances had been divided up, which would be bad news for the Jade Lake. It was nothing to return empty-handed for it was a matter of kismet.
However, this ancient battlefield was on the Tianxiang Celestial Realm, which was dominated by the Jade Lake! Several big sects had obtained the inheritances while the Jade Lake was late and got nothing. This would be a humiliation for the Jade Lake and would impair its reputation!
