Looking at how confident the young star lord was, Wu Lu and Gong Ji looked at each other as their brows furrowed. They had already guessed something.
On the distant Desolate Plane, many people still had not forgotten Jian Chen’s name even after so many years; this was despite the fact that the mess Jian Chen created back then had already settled down. It was just that very few people mentioned it.
Only the huge, gaping hole on the plane indicated just how great of a disturbance Jian Chen had caused in the past.
The huge hole was naturally created from the astonishing strike from the eight experts deep underground.
However, the hole seemed much smaller compared to the past.
Cultivators from various large organisations were slowly filling it in. It would return to its previous state before long.
The Celestial Sword Saint remained in the Sword God Mountains, ignoring the affairs happening around him. He held an extremely great status, firmly holding the position as the greatest expert of the Desolate Plane. Meanwhile, open and concealed struggles continued between the organisations on the plane. The Desolate Plane did not seem any different from before Jian Chen had come.
Of course, that was only on the surface. Intelligent people could clearly sense that the situation on the entire Desolate Plane had undergone an overwhelming change.
This was because the Radiant Saint Hall that was only average among all the peak organisations on the Desolate Plane before was now showing signs of being able to conquer the entire plane.
This was all because the Radiant Saint Hall possessed a few protector swords.
At this moment, one of the wielders of the protector swords, Han Xin, sat atop the Soaring Clouds Peak. He faced the cliff as he stared at the sea of clouds in a daze.
Behind Han Xin was a scholarly, middle-aged man. He possessed a striking appearance and was an Infinite Prime. He possessed the bearing of someone who held power, making him awe-inspiring.
However, at this moment, his face was filled with smiles. He seemed rather restrained as he stood behind Han Xin. He said some things carefully, and he sounded rather awkward.
“Han Xin, I know you have great prejudice towards the clan, but no matter what, the blood of the Han family flows through your veins…”
“The two ancestors in the clan talk about you daily. They say that you’re the greatest pride of our Han family, and all the important members of the clan take pride in you…”
“Han Xin, whether it be the two ancestors or the young children in the clan, they all think about you everyday. Do you think you… you can make some time and go back to have a look?”
The scholarly, middle-aged man was the patriarch of the Han family. He held an extremely great status in the Han family, but now, he seemed very careful before Han Xin. He even spoke gently, kind of like he was fawning over Han Xin. It was as if he was afraid of displeasing him.
Han Xin sat on the edge of the cliff silently. He stared at the clouds in a daze and did not move at all. He only sighed inside and thought, “If I hadn’t obtained a protector sword, I wonder what I’ll be like right now.” Han Xin looked down at the foot of the Soaring Clouds Peak. Many peak lords had gathered there along with two elders.
These people had come to visit him. They waited patiently at the foot of the mountain. Without his permission, even the two elders dared not set foot on the Soaring Clouds Peak.
At this moment, a long, bell rang out from the sacred hall that stood above the clouds, resounding through the entire Radiant Saint Hall.
This was a signal to summon the entire upper echelon of the Radiant Saint Hall.
“Sir!” A white figure flew out from a cave on the mountain, quickly arriving before Han Xin.
She was Bai Yu. She wore the white robes that represented Radiant Saint Masters and stood gracefully. She possessed an otherworldly bearing and a terrifying power seemed to be hidden within her, as if it were hibernating.
That was the power from the protector sword that ranked fourth, Cliffgrinder’s Sword!
“It’s junior Bai Yu. Junior Bai Yu has become even prettier since the last time I saw you.” The patriarch of the Han family smiled as he greeted Bai Yu politely.
Bai Yu furrowed her brows and subconsciously took a step away from the patriarch of the Han family, as if being called junior Bai Yu left her extremely uncomfortable.
“Bai Yu, let’s go.” Han Xin stood up. He ignored the patriarch of the Han family and called Bai Yu, taking to the air with her and heading directly to the sacred hall.
As wielders of protector swords, Bai Yu and Han Xin possessed extremely great statuses in the Radiant Saint Hall. They could enter the sacred hall and Tower of Radiance freely. Even the leader of the Radiant Saint Hall had no right to control the protectors.
However, they had already grown accustomed to living on the Soaring Clouds Peak, so even after they became protectors, the two of them continued to stay on the Soaring Clouds Peak. They rarely ventured into the sacred hall.
At the same time, the two elders waiting at the foot of the mountain flew towards the sacred hall as well.
Before long, the sacred hall was filled with people. The leader of the Radiant Saint Hall, Yu Chen, the eight vice-leaders, the wielders of the protector swords, Han Xin, Bai Yu, Xuan Ming, Donglin Yanxue, and Gongsun Zhi, along with all the elders were gathered there now.
“Gongsun Zhi, what’s the important matter for gathering us all here by ringing the sacred bell?” Yu Chen sat at the very front and asked Gongsun Zhi.
Gongsun Zhi stood with his hands behind his back. He looked around and glanced past the eight vice-leaders and all the elders. He said, “I’ve already found Jian Chen’s whereabouts. He’s currently hiding in a place called the Tian Yuan clan in the southern region of the Cloud Plane. That little thief used the name of Chang Yang to infiltrate our Radiant Saint Hall and stole our greatest legacy, the Method of the Exalted Saint. It’s time for us to take back the cultivation method now.”
“Hmph, quit spewing lies, Gongsun Zhi. My senior brother is no thief. He changed his name and hid in our Radiant Saint Hall because he had the Anatta Tower on him. He was hunted down by all the experts of the Saints’ World. And as for the Method of the Exalted Saint, why don’t you think about it was exactly him who received it, not anyone else? It clearly means that the Method of the Exalted Saint is supposed to go to my senior brother,” Bai Yu retorted firmly as soon as Gongsun Zhi finished speaking, showing no respect towards him.
They were both protectors, so they could not harm each other at all, as the protector swords forbid it. As a result, the protectors did not fear one another.
“It goes without saying just how wondrous a Grand Exalt’s legacy is. There has only ever been someone who is chosen by a supreme legacy like this. There has never been an example where someone steals it, unless they’re exceptional peak experts. Jian Chen is clearly not the latter, so I agree with junior Bai Yu. The legacy chose Jian Chen. He did not steal it,” said Donglin Yanxue, disagreeing with Gongsun Zhi as well.
