Xu Que and his teammates left the Heaven Palace Academy in haste.
They arrived at a Teleportation Device and took it directly to the Tianxiang Celestial Realm.
Normally, they would have gone to the Taiyin Celestial Realm if their destination was the Divine Farmer Clan. But the Taiyin Celestial Realm, which was quite powerful, was worried about possible invasion by the Ziwei Celestial Realm, the overlord of the Heaven Continent. So, the Taiyin Celestial Realm had stopped teleportation between their realm and the Ziwei Celestial Realm. In this way, those who wanted to go to the Taiyin Celestial Realm from the Ziwei Celestial Realm had to go to the Tianxiang Celestial Realm first.
This was also one of the reasons that the Taiyin Celestial Realm maintained a good relationship with the Tianxiang Celestial Realm. Anyway, teeth couldn’t live without lips. Because of the decline of the Jade Lake’s strength, the Tianxiang Celestial Realm was also declining, although it was still number one of the 14 Celestial Realms. Now, it seemed as if the Tianxiang Celestial Realm was about to become the doorkeeper of the Taiyin Celestial Realm.
At the same time, the Heaven Palace Academy was in a mess.
Although Xu Que and his teammates had left, the noises they had made startled the entire Heaven Palace Academy! Countless apprentices were quite anxious and flustered because of this overbearing and ruthless new Deputy Dean.
Those who used to bully Buttface and Duan Jiude had even started to pack up because they decided to take shelter by going home for some time. Some people were preparing elixirs and other precious items which could be used as gifts when they made an apology to Buttface and Duan Jiude.
Also, the death of the Grand Deacon who was in charge of the abodes of the elite apprentices also startled many big shots in the Heaven Palace Academy.
Besides Li Qinghe and Li Qingshan, there were still many other powerhouses in the Heaven Palace Academy. For example, the Grand Deacon and the old man who was responsible for the treasure house, who were not members of the Li Family, had reached the level of the Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven!
When these powerhouses heard about the death of the Grand Deacon from the teachers and apprentices of the academy, most of them were shocked.
Some of them even didn’t know the academy had a new Deputy Dean. Also, they didn’t expect this new Deputy Dean would be so ruthless and horrible!
In the Equipment-Forging Pavilion of the Heaven Palace Academy, a middle-aged man at the level of Disbanded Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven sighed, “Why did the Dean decide to add a new Deputy Dean? All the decisions that have been made by the academy recently are so confusing. I’m afraid we are going to have an eventful period soon!”
In the Pill-Refining Pavilion, two old men were sitting in front of a Pill Furnace. After hearing the report of an apprentice, one of them said as he shook his head, “Let’s just wait until the Dean and the rest of our colleagues come back from the Ancestor Worship Ceremony!”
In the Earth Forgetting Pavilion in the West Building of the Heaven Palace Academy, there was a young man.
He was very handsome and was sitting in an Array. Beside him, several guardians were watching over him vigilantly.
The man’s body was wrapped in strands of dazzling rays, which were composed of numerous thickly dotted runes generated between Heaven and Earth. This man was performing cultivation quietly with these dazzling runes.
His guardians were responsible for protecting him from being bothered by others. At this moment, all of them were staring at each other with furrowed brows.
“We’ve just got news about them. That man has left for the Tianxiang Celestial Realm from the academy. I don’t think he will come here to bother our young master!”
“Humph! This is outrageous! The Heaven Palace Academy is totally useless. They nominated a new Deputy Dean inexplicably. This guy killed some apprentices first. Then he killed the Grand Deacon of the academy. And last, he ruined the abode of our young master! He is so arrogant! Does it mean no one can restrain him?”
“I’m afraid nobody is able restrain him. People thought he was just an old liar. Nobody expected he could kill the academy’s Grand Deacon! I guess he must at least be a Celestial King!”
“I won’t believe he is a Celestial King unless I see him with my own eyes!”
“Forget it! Since he has left, the young master is safe temporarily. Fortunately, we did a good job this time not disclosing the news that the young master has realized a breakthrough. Also, thank goodness we didn’t stay in that abode. Otherwise, we would have been in big trouble!”
“There is another issue which is quite risky. I’ve heard that they went to the treasure house. The Elder in the treasure house said they just looked around in it. It seems they tried to find an elixir. Finally, they just left empty-handed!”
“So, should we remove the thing we are hiding in the treasure house now? It is crucial for our young master to break the limitations of his physique!”
“No, that thing is too important. Now is not the time for the young master to refine it. If we take it out, it will make a lot of noise that will startle too many people. What if that guy comes back when he hears the news?”
“What No. 3 said is right! Since that guy has been to the treasure house and didn’t find the thing that we have hidden there, it means our concealing spell was effective. Also, he is the Deputy Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy. Maybe he killed the Grand Deacon with good reason. The treasure house hasn’t offended him before. I guess he won’t cross the line by plundering the treasure house flagrantly!”
“Right! Okay, let’s continue to protect the young master. I guess the young master will reach that level within three months. At that time, with the help of that thing, he will reach the level of first-rate Divine Being of Taoist Fetus and become invincible among his peers!”
At the same time, more and more people were learning about the deeds of the new Deputy Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy.
Within half a day, almost all the people in the Ziwei Celestial Realm had heard the news.
Numerous people were shocked and terrified.
“My God! Are you sure it is not a rumor?”
“How could Xu Que’s father, who was wanted by the Heaven Palace Academy, become this academy’s Deputy Dean?”
“Reliable sources have confirmed that Xu Que’s father killed three apprentices of the academy after he had just become the Deputy Dean. Then he even declared war against the Bao Family, the Zhang Family, and the Lin Family!”
“Even worse, he also killed the Grand Deacon of the Heaven Palace Academy. That Grand Deacon had reached the level of the Golden Celestial of the Great All-Embracing Heaven!”
GASP! “Is he really so horrible?”
Many people were shocked and didn’t believe their ears.
Within a day, so many horrible things had occurred in the Heaven Palace Academy! And all these things had been done by Xu Que’s father, who everyone had considered an old liar! How could this be?
However, when the apprentices of the Heaven Palace Academy confirmed all these things that had happened that day, people stopped being suspicious. It turned out that all this hearsay was true!
“I didn’t expect he could kill that Grand Deacon in the Heaven Palace Academy! The strength of Xu Que’s father is really horrible!”
“I’ve heard that the Grand Deacon placed the abode of the Body of Heavenly Kismet and the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus together. Now, everybody knows Jiang Hongyan is the daughter-in-law of Xu Que’s father. So the decision of that Grand Deacon of the Heaven Palace Academy led to her death!”
“Alas! This is so random! Nobody knew that Xu Que’s father would become the Deputy Dean! His strength is so horrible. I’m afraid he is really a Celestial King!”
“Hah! Hah! I’ve heard that Xu Que’s father also exploded the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus’s abode after killing that Grand Deacon. Does it mean he also declared a war against the Sage Sect?”
“Heh! If he is really a Celestial King, the Sage Sect could do nothing to stop him from exploding the abode of the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus!”
“Right! Until now, the Sage Sect hasn’t expressed their opinion about this issue. I’m afraid they have been intimidated by the strength of Xu Que’s father!”
“Anyway, I’ve also heard that the Holy Water River of the Sage Sect dried up recently. It is said that the source of the Holy Water River and the entire palace on the Snow Fog Mountain were stolen by someone!”
“What the h*ll? How could this be? Is this for real?”
“It seems it is true. Also, someone said they were stolen by Xu Que’s father!”
PUFF! “Come on! That’s definitely a rumor. Outsiders are not allowed to enter Snow Fog Mountain. So, nobody could see that the palace on that mountain was stolen. If the apprentices of the Sage Sect saw that, they would have already reported it to the Sect Leader of the Sage Sect. Why is the news just spreading out now?”
“Right! The Sage Sect didn’t hunt down Xu Que’s father. It seems this is just a rumor!”
People kept talking about all the things that had happened in the Heaven Palace Academy. Then people started to pay attention to the palace on the Snow Fog Mountain of the Sage Sect that had been stolen. At last, some apprentices of the Sage Sect confirmed that the palace had been stolen. But so far the thief hadn’t been found.
Apparently, they clarified this to avoid offending Xu Que’s father. They were afraid that if Xu Que’s father was provoked, he might become a horrible enemy of the Sage Sect!
Several days later, Xu Que, who had just stepped out from the Teleportation Device in the Tianxiang Celestial Realm, smiled to himself when he heard the discussion about the missing palace on Snow Fog Mountain.
“I stole it a long time ago. Why are people starting to discuss it now?”
Then Xu Que walked out into a bustling street and shouted loudly, “Stop your speculation! I am the one who took the palace on Snow Fog Mountain! Remember! I took it! But I didn’t steal it! How could a cultivator be a thief? Moreover, the real owner of the palace is Xuanyuan Wanrong who is the building head of the Heaven Palace Sect’s South Building. I guess the Sage Sect should know that.
“Therefore, I took away the palace on Snow Fog Mountain with good reason! Oh, by the way, let me tell you something. Xuanyuan Wanrong is also my daughter-in-law!”
