With Zhan Wushuang and Jiang Yi speaking in concert, it gave the Battle Thearch and the Zhan Clan a very easy way out. If Battle Thearch still did not know when to give in, he was an idiot.
Of course, the Battle Thearch was still holding on to his dignity. He nodded indifferently as one of the elders around him waved a hand brusquely and said, “Zhan Wushuang, you have the authority to discuss this matter on behalf of the Zhan Clan. If the compensation is not up to our expectations, the Zhan Clan will not rest…”
Jiang Yi gave a cold look at that elder who stopped talking and didn’t dare to continue, keeping his mouth shut. Jiang Yi then smiled slightly and said, “Zhan Wushuang, come into the Mystic Divine Palace. We will talk!”
The Mystic Divine Palace flew over, and its pitch-black door opened slowly. Zhan Wushuang flew into the Mystic Divine Palace. The Battle Thearch and company’s eyes had lit up: they all had a desire to fly in together. However, they thought about it and gave up that thought, not wanting to take the risk. The restrictions inside the Mystic Divine Palace were too scary; if they were trapped inside, that would be problematic.
“Alright, Old Zhan, let’s drink tea together another day.”
The Mystic Divine Palace’s door shut, and there was trembling in the air. A huge hole appeared once again, and the Mystic Divine Palace completely disappeared inside it.
A huge battle, a calamity of epic proportions for the Zhan Clan disciples, had suddenly ended with the appearance of Zhan Wushuang. This frightening immense battle was over.
The Mystic Thearch City had regained its peace. The surroundings were also very quiet. However, with the city full of dead bodies and the blood mist floating about, they constantly reminded people of how terrible the battle had been. Many people were still in a daze within the city; they had been scared out of their wits. Many children still had fear in their eyes; they probably would never forget this day for the rest of their lives, could never forget that young man who was like a demon.
“Let’s return home.”
The Sword Thearch waved his hand and left with his men. The Yin Thearch stared into the sky for a moment and helplessly brought his men and left also. The Xuan Thearch quietly left as well, and so did the Sonar Thearch with the men from the Chen Clan. Jiang Yi did not need them to do anything; his abilities were already stronger than the Sonar Thearch’s.
The hundreds of thousands of people from big and small clans watching also dispersed. Now that the excitement was over, no one dared to remain, fearful of incurring the wrath of the enraged Zhan Clan. Many people carried a serious look at them. Although the battle today had ended and that Jiang Yi had left—based on Jiang Yi’s character, the East Imperial Continent would definitely not be peaceful anymore. The Battle Thearch would also not be able to stomach what happened today while the North Thearch, Evil Thearch, and Beast Thearch would not sit idle as well. Hence, these Thearchs would be finding ways to kill Jiang Yi. Further battles were not avoidable; bigger battles were to come.
Jiang Yi did not intend to go too far away from the Mystic Thearch City. However, he realized that the Mystic Divine Palace was too powerful and was even faster than his Heaven Evasion. Within five minutes, the Mystic Divine Palace had traversed five hundred thousand kilometers and appeared inside a mountain east of the continent.
Jiang Yi stopped and released his Divine Perception to scan a five-hundred-thousand-kilometer radius. After verifying that no strong Demigods were about, he then turned his gaze to Zhan Wushuang, saying, “Big Brother Wushuang, didn’t you say your bloodline did not come from the Zhan Clan? Why have you suddenly become a disciple of the Zhan Clan? I am really sorry, I did not know your connection to the Zhan Clan…”
“Jiang Yi, you do not need to feel guilty.”
Zhan Wushuang waved his hand and said, “Even if you really destroyed the Zhan Clan, I would not mind that much. I do not have many feelings towards the Zhan Clan; I had actually started to detest it the few years I’ve been here. There is so much treachery and backstabbing in a big clan like this. Many Zhan Clan young masters have tried to have me killed. If I hadn’t been in seclusion these two years and kept a low-profile, I would probably be dead already.
“As to why… I am a Zhan Clan disciple, the story is long!”
Zhan Wushuang sighed slightly and started to explain. That year, Jiang Yi had told him that if his identity was exposed on the East Imperial Continent, Zhan Wushuang was to depart for the continent. Zhan Wushuang was very obedient. When Jiang Yi was creating a bloodbath in the Wu Clan’s four regions, Zhan Wushuang had departed as instructed. Under arrangements made by Qian Wanguan, he had secretly arrived at the East Imperial Continent.
Zhan Wushuang had always maintained a low-profile; he was actually not that strong. Hence, although he was constantly with Jiang Yi in the Gods Bestow Tribe, the great family clans did not have much information about him. Furthermore, he was just a small character not worthy of much attention. Hence, he had been very safe after arriving at the East Imperial Continent.
Using the command token that his family had given him, Zhan Wushuang had been trying to find his bloodline. Qian Wanguan had given him many celestial stones, and he was teleporting everywhere. He did not encounter any danger on the road. It took him a few months before he found his bloodline. However, that clan was actually a branch lineage from the Zhan Clan.
Zhan Wushuang hid his identity and only said that he was a disciple wandering about outside. He also did not mention that he had come from Stellarsky Continent. As there were no records of him in that clan and that he indeed possessed blood ties with the Zhan Clan, he had very naturally been accepted by that clan.
The Zhan Clan was a special clan on its own. There was a Battle Soul Pond inside the Battle Thearch Castle in Mystic Thearch City. All disciples of the Zhan Clan could cleanse their marrows and meridians in the Battle Soul Pond, promoting one’s blood circulation. As Zhan Wushuang was a returning disciple, he had attained such a right as well.
Unexpectedly, once Zhan Wushuang entered the Battle Soul Pond, the pond started to react strangely; and Zhan Wushuang was transformed, attaining a peak-stage level. This had astounded the higher-ups in the Zhan Clan and the Battle Thearch. Zhan Wushuang was then made to stay in the Battle Thearch Castle and given the status of a core disciple. He had even received a personal castle.
After cleansing his marrows and meridians and having his blood circulation accelerated, Zhan Wushuang overcame an insurmountable obstacle. Within two years, he had broken through to the Demigod Realm. If it wasn’t for the incidents that Jiang Yi had triggered, Zhan Wushuang’s name would definitely have been made known to the world. He would also become one of the candidates to be the next young clan head.
After hearing Zhan Wushuang’s explanation, Jiang Yi smiled bitterly and said, “Big Brother Wushuang, if you had broken through one or two months earlier, that would have been the best. I would not have gotten into such a big fight with the Zhan Clan as well. Now that things have reached this point, you probably will not be able to become the next young clan head; based on your relationship with me, the Battle Thearch would definitely not allow it.”
Zhan Tianlei laughed out loud and became more confident. He seemed to have regained a little of himself reminiscent of those days back, being the Great Young Master of the Zhan Clan at Mt. Spirit Beast College. He shook his head and said, “Jiang Yi, you are wrong. Even if the Battle Thearch wants to make me young clan head, I would not accept it. Huge families are the dirtiest and ugliest.
“Zhan Tianlei had tried to kill me multiple times while the young masters of the Zhan Clan have also mocked me and made fun of me, making life difficult for me. Even the servants of the Zhan Clan look down upon me, a bastard from a branch lineage. I have no use for such a Zhan Clan. Can’t I, Zhan Wushuang, create my own Zhan Clan? Can’t I become a Clan Head?”
“Good! This is the Big Brother Wushuang that I know.” Jiang Yi laughed out loud and quickly thought of something and asked, “In that case, Big Brother Wushuang, are you intending to return to the Zhan Clan? If not, you can come with me.”
“I’m not going back; it’s better being with you!” Zhan Wushuang was very resolute. He said, “You are not bad; even the Mystic Divine Palace had landed up in your hands. You could even slaughter so many people in the Mystic Thearch City. Have your powers reached that of a nine-star martial expert?”
“Do I look like a nine-star martial expert?”
Jiang Yi rolled his eyes and said, “I have not even broken through to the Demigod Realm. The only reason why I could go up against the Battle Thearch was all thanks to this Mystic Divine Palace. This story is too long; I’ll tell you another time.”
Zhan Wushuang nodded and said, “Where shall we go now? Shall we head back to Sin Island? I have not been back for a few years. I wonder how Yun Fei has been. Oh, right, Jiang Yi, I have a kid now. It’s a boy. He should be around three-years-old now.”
“Hahaha, congratulations, congratulations! I am already an uncle.”
Jiang Yi was overjoyed and was genuinely happy for Zhan Wushuang. He suddenly felt a little dazed. Time had passed so quickly. He was already an uncle?
Jiang Yi paused for a second, shook his head, and said, “We can’t go back yet. I have to make a trip to the Snow Region and get Ruoxue back. Once Ruoxue is back, we will return to Sin Island immediately. I wonder how Fatty, Feng Luan, and the rest have been.”
