Jiang Lan gazed at the dot of light in front of him, maintaining his calm.
If there were any abnormalities in the surroundings, he would be able to sense them.
Of course, none of those who obtained the Deity Position was weaker than him, so he might not be able to sense the abnormalities either.
But it was always right to keep his vigilance up.
Only, the closer he got, the stranger he felt. The light wasn’t as bright as the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace.
But it also made people feel that it was even older.
Yes, it felt ancient.
It was as if it existed even longer than the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace. It was as if it was an elder and a robust man.
“It doesn’t look like any other palaces.”
If it were any other palace, it would not only have such weak light to the point that he would not even be able to see its entire appearance.
The light was there, thin and long.
Perhaps it really was the place Imperial Lord Xi He had mentioned, but Imperial Lord Xi He had never mentioned the exact location.
He just said that one would know when one found it.
Jiang Lan did not know what he was supposed to find.
Soon, he began to see the scene in the light.
He was somewhat surprised. It was not a large place, nor was it a full palace like the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace.
It was a small place.
There was only one building above this place.
It was the gatehouse.
He didn’t sense anything from afar, but when he got closer, he realized that the gate was extremely huge, as if it was standing in the void.
“What is this place?”
Jiang Lan was stunned.
Soon, he arrived at the side of the gate. He should be inside the gate right now. What he saw was the back of the gate.
If he wanted to know what this gatehouse was, he needed to go a bit further in.
This way, he might be able to see the name on the gate.
However, when he stepped closer, he had a strange feeling that he would be able to see it even from far away.
It was as if the Deity Position was resonating with it.
“This gate is not ordinary.”
Even when he was standing in front of the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace, he didn’t experience this change. Of course, it could also be because he hadn’t entered the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace since the beginning.
However, he could indeed use this gate to do many things he originally couldn’t do with his Deity Position.
For example, seeing other light spots in the void.
When he turned around to take a look, he saw quite a number of light spots.
All of them were very far away.
They were even moving.
Previously at the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace, he could still see some stars but today, he didn’t see any.
“So it seems that I am further away now.”
The Ancient Imperial Palace had not moved. Jiang Lan wasn’t sure if it was because it had never moved from the start or if it was because Imperial Lord Youdu had stopped it.
One thing was certain, he did not have the ability to move the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace.
“Thinking about it carefully, Imperial Lord Youdu often said that his head wasn’t good, so he must have moved.”
If everyone else had moved but he did not move, wouldn’t that be unacceptable?
This was the thought that Imperial Lord Youdu would have.
Stepping forward, Jiang Lan arrived in front of the gate.
If Imperial Lord Xi He hadn’t lied to him, and this was really the place that Imperial Lord Xi He had mentioned.
If that was the case, he would be able to confirm his guess, and he would also be able to find out what exactly the Ancient Imperial Palace was.
Slowly raising his head, Jiang Lan seemed to be looking at the top of the courtyard.
He even saw the name written on it.
He was surprised when he saw the name.
Even though he was mentally prepared, he still couldn’t help but be shocked when he saw those words.
“As I thought.”
At this moment, Jiang Lan saw the gate with an ancient aura. There were four words written on it—Ancient Imperial Court.
This was the Heaven Realm.
“No wonder Imperial Lord Xi He is able to stay ahead of everyone and knows so much.”
The Ancient Imperial Court should be the Heaven Realm, and the First Summit of Kunlun was connected to the Heaven Realm.
Back then, the Kunlun Ancestor must have come to the Ancient Imperial Court. That was the only reason why he could leave behind such a sentence.
At this moment, the Ancient Imperial Court was completely dark, and its buildings were covered in cracks.
The Ancient Imperial Palace had fallen.
But what had the Ancient Imperial Palace experienced for it to perish?
The Kunlun Ancestor had entered the Heaven Realm once again after he had returned heavily injured.
In the end, he disappeared without a trace.
He should have died here.
There were countless legends about the Ancient Imperial Palace. It was incomparably powerful and involved every part of the vast wilderness.
However, it had perished silently in the Heaven Realm.
“The Kunlun Ancestor should know the reason. I wonder if he left behind any related information.
But even if there is, it’s not something ordinary disciples can see. ”
He thought about it carefully. There was nothing about the Ancient Imperial Court in the books that his master had given him.
Either his master did not know, or it was not yet time for him to know.
But no matter what, Imperial Lord Xi He definitely knew the most.
After that, Jiang Lan stopped thinking about it. The Ancient Imperial Court was part of the deep waters that he could not touch yet. He had yet to even figure out fully about his Deity Position.
The Ancient Imperial Palace didn’t leave anything behind. Only the Deity Positions remained. It seemed that through the Deity Positions, one would be able to find out the reason behind the destruction of the Ancient Imperial Palace.
There was no rush. He could take his time.
He was not strong enough.
With this thought in mind, Jiang Lan decided to return to the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace.
He wondered if he would encounter any problems on this trip back.
Just as he was about to leave, he suddenly heard a voice. It was the Eighth Prince calling out his Deity Position.
“Unparalleled Fist God, we have sensed great danger on this trip. We hope you will pay attention to us.”
As soon as the Eighth Prince finished speaking, the voice of the youth from the inn rang out.
“Unparalleled Fist God, what kind of offerings do you need?
We’ll get you ready when the time comes. ”
Jiang Lan: “…”
He remembered that the youth had been struggling with thinking of the price he had to pay.
Until now, he had yet to speak. It was also not a good thing to not ask for something in return.
Only fair transactions could reassure the other party.
But what did he need?
He did not lack anything.
“But can he hear it clearly if I were to transmit from here? And—”
Jiang Lan sensed it and realized that it was very easy to check the situation over there when he was here.
It was even easier than using the Mountain Sea Mirror.
“Is it because of the Ancient Imperial Court?”
He had sensed the changes in the Deity Position right from the start, as though he had something to rely on.
Seemed like his Deity Position had been enhanced.
Normally speaking, he needed to increase his cultivation base. Now, the Ancient Imperial Court was supporting him.
Then, he waved his hand.
An image began to appear in front of them.
There were four figures in the forest.
They were the Eighth Prince, who was looking around, the youth who was testing his strength, the phoenix with a lower position than the rest, as well as the girl from the Qilin Race who was often lost.
The phoenix that stayed in the inn wasn’t amongst them.
“Are they observing and checking whether I am casting my gaze upon them?”
Jiang Lan looked at the confused Eighth Prince and the youth and couldn’t help but think.
He wouldn’t be noticed by them here, and it was even to the extent that some other experts wouldn’t be able to easily notice him.
It was better than the Mountain Sea Mirror.
Moreover, with the Ancient Imperial Court as his backing, he might not need to worry too much about experts who would discover him.
Of course, what he needed to worry about were those in the Heaven Realm itself.
There were others that might come here too.
“I don’t feel anything,” the youth said to the Eighth Prince.
“Me too.” The Eighth Prince shrugged. He didn’t know if that person was looking at him. Then, he continued.
“Let’s set off first. There shouldn’t be any problems.”
Since his brother-in-law had said that there should be no problem, then there should be no problem.
His brother-in-law would never harm him.
And he had a backup plan.
