Is she really Hongyan?
This same surprising thought occurred to both Xu Que and Liu Jingning at the same time.
She was indeed Jiang Hongyan! Her appearance and aura hadn’t changed significantly! However, her temperament was totally changed. It was as if she was a completely different person.
Before entering the Ancient Bronze Hall, she had always been distant and remote, but she had also been pleasant. Especially when Xu Que became familiar with her, he didn’t feel any sense of distance from her. It seemed as if her heart was open to Xu Que!
But now, as she stepped out of the Ancient Bronze Hall, she seemed so overbearing. She acted like a superior governor who was looking down at everything in her realm!
This change was not intentional. It was as if she had gotten this royal temperament by birth or because she had reached an untouchable position!
“We greet you, Holy Senior!”
As she stepped out of the Hall, the outlanders started to shout, folding their hands and bowing reverently.
Dong Genji and the Patriarchs of several sects were looking at Jiang Hongyan in shock. Their expressions showed how confused they felt. Dong Genji even started to feel upset!
However, Jiang Hongyan stood in the sky motionlessly and looked straight ahead!
It seemed that she was enjoying all the beauty of the world and ignoring everybody standing around.
Even so, the powerhouses at the summit of the Form Synthesis Stage and the old man who was at the threshold of the Crossing Calamity Stage didn’t show any dissatisfaction. On the contrary, they stayed standing where they were, carefully and reverently, and didn’t even dare to breathe heavily.
“Is she still Jiang Hongyan?” Liu Jingning, who was dumbfounded, had to ask, looking at Xu Que.
“Maybe yes, maybe no!” Xu Que replied anxiously in a low voice.
After all, only he knew how he had come to this world! He had crossed over to this world through reincarnation!
Jiang Hongyan’s appearance wasn’t changed. However, her temperament was totally different, which made him upset. If Jiang Hongyan was killed in the Ancient Bronze Hall, and her body was taken over by someone else, Xu Que and Liu Jingning would be in big trouble!
What should we do?
Xu Que couldn’t help but clench his fists! The blue veins bulged on his hands, which meant he was extremely nervous now! He was afraid Jiang Hongyan had been taken over by someone else, which was something he could never accept!
The entire area was very quiet. Everyone was looking at Jiang Hongyan and waiting for her to speak.
However, Jiang Hongyan just ignored all the people as if she was the only person in this world! She remained steadily looking at the mountains and the waters. Her aura was so powerful that all the outlanders were stunned.
At last, the old man at the threshold of the Crossing Calamity Stage said carefully, lowering his head reverently, “Holy Senior, congratulations for finishing your reincarnation successfully! From now on, the fate of this world is under your control! His Majesty ordered us to escort you back!”
Jiang Hongyan still kept silent!
Xu Que was shocked by what the old man said!
Finished the reincarnation?
Does it mean Jiang Hongyan is the reincarnation of a powerhouse?
She can even control the fate of this world!
Isn’t it the reason for her unique fate? She was always fortunate, while people around her were dogged by bad luck as if their good luck had been taken away by her!
“Holy Senior, this place is locked by shackles. Although we have opened the way back secretly, the way will still be closed soon. We should leave now!” The old man at the threshold of the Crossing Calamity Stage urged nervously.
The old man and the powerhouses at the summit of the Form Synthesis Stage were quite confused and didn’t know why their Holy Senior ignored them!
However, as their time here was quite limited, they didn’t have space to think about it. They only wanted to escort their Holy Senior back, so that they could report on completion of their task. It was not up them to consider the rest of the problems!
Finally, Jiang Hongyan uttered her first word.
Although she only said one word, “Wait”, it was like an indisputable order. The outlanders bent down even more reverently and said obediently, “As you wish!”
After that, the entire area fell silent again!
Xu Que, who couldn’t contain himself anymore, furrowed his eyebrows and shouted, “Hongyan, look, it’s me!”
Jiang Hongyan was surprised a bit. Then, she lowered her head to look at Xu Que.
Xu Que was quite happy and a smile appeared on his face!
The outlanders were shocked. Their Holy Senior had never looked at them since she stepped out of the Hall. Now she was looking at a young man who was just at Level One of the Void Training Stage! What…what is going on? Could the Holy Senior really know him and could she have a good relationship with him?
Then, suddenly, Jiang Hongyan asked, looking at Xu Que blankly, “Who…who are you?”
The smile was frozen on Xu Que’s face. He couldn’t believe it, and he was very upset! “Who…who am I? You asked me who I am?”
He was vexed and amused at the same time. Apparently, he couldn’t accept that Jiang Hongyan had forgotten who he was!
The outlanders, the Patriarchs, and Dong Genji secretly let out a huge sigh of relief. Their Holy Senior didn’t know Xu Que, or had forgotten Xu Que, which was good news for them!
Dong Genji’s heart was at rest completely. He said loudly, suppressing the ecstasy in his heart, “Holy Senior, the name of this man is Xu Que. He is quite powerful! Before you woke up from your reincarnation, he tried to seize you forcibly many times. The woman beside him is Liu Jingning, who used to hunt you down!”
“What?” Jiang Hongyan frowned slightly and looked at Dong Genji as if she was trying to confirm what he said.
Dong Genji bent down immediately and said reverently, “Holy Senior, don’t you remember when you fled into the Ancient Bronze Hall because of her deadly chase?”
“Dong Genji, you are such a hypocrite! How dare you play the trick of a thief crying ‘Stop thief’”! Liu Jingning, who was totally furious, scolded him loudly!
“Holy Senior, what I said is absolutely authentic!” Dong Genji didn’t change his expression and continued to stand reverently in front of Jiang Hongyan.
Suddenly, a chilly voice spoke up!
Dong Genji couldn’t help but tremble a bit. He knew the voice came from Xu Que. However, he didn’t dare to look at him because he was terrified.Even though he was standing beside many powerhouses at the Form Synthesis Stage, he was still terrified by Xu Que!
Why? Why am I terrified?
He didn’t understand why he was terrified by a man at Level 1 of the Void Training Stage who was even younger than he was. Dong Genji didn’t even dare to make eye contact with Xu Que!
At the same time, a magnificent kill intent was being released from Xu Que’s body!
Before his re-cultivation, all his Terrifying Spiritual Qi had been absorbed by his Taoist Body. However, he used to kill many people and his blood-lusting heart had never changed. This magnificent momentum was quite rare among ordinary people! After leaving the Mystery Land, Xu Que managed to contain his impulse of killing people with little provocation. After being invincible, he didn’t want to haggle over small issues with mediocre cultivators. On the contrary, he even tried to enjoy their poor performance in front of him!
But now Dong Genji had really annoyed him!
He was already quite irritable because Jiang Hongyan had forgotten him. When Dong Genji had just tried to frame him, he couldn’t contain his anger anymore. “Two years ago, I spared your sorry life. Today, I will take it back personally! Dong Genji, your mother has called you to go to hell!” Xu Que shouted furiously, dashing out like a shadow flying through the void!
