“The people from the First Summit are trapped in the Ninth Summit?”
Jiang Lan was surprised when he heard this.
What was going on?
A moment later, he found out about the details.
He immediately suspected Martial Aunt Miao Yue.
Sure enough, it wasn’t long before Xiao Yu found out that Martial Aunt Miao Yue had headed to the Ninth Summit.
Jiang Lan: “…”
It seemed like she had been planning this for many years.
Martial Aunt Miao Yue really knew how to wait.
However, from this, it could be seen that Martial Aunt Miao Yue was probably serious.
Then he had to ask his master again.
He had been in the Jade Pool for nearly thirty years, so it was time to return.
His observations of Kunlun Power had also allowed him to make some progress. There was no need to be too detailed with regards to this.
He had entered the sect for 767 years and the Netherworld Entrance would erupt again in a few years. He needed to stand guard at the cave for a period of time.
At the same time, he wanted to reach the final threshold of the Celestial Immortal Realm as soon as possible.
His current cultivation level on the surface was at the perfected Human Immortal Realm. With the help of the Jade Pool, he should be able to adjust his surface cultivation to the True Immortal Realm in another decade or so.
Once the eruption of the Netherworld Cave ended, it should also be about time.
After that, he would advance to the Dao Immortal Realm.
Furthermore, he heard that the Dragon Race was going to come earlier.
Very much earlier in fact.
The exact time was not set yet, but it would take at least another forty years before the battle started.
The dragons actually wanted to live in Kunlun for so many years. He didn’t know why.
It was one thing to guide the Eighth Prince, but without any other motives, there was no need for the dragons to come so early.
It was also possible that the dragons wanted the Eighth Prince to continue giving back to the Ancestral Dragon.
Or perhaps they were making preparations such that the Eight Prince could give the fortituous opportunities on him to the Cangyuan Ancestral Dragon as soon as it descended. If that was the case, the Heavenly Feather Phoenix Race and the Qilin Race might arrive soon as well.
As for the saber technique, the Eight Prince had more or less grasped it already.
It was the same for the youth.
Their progress were almost the same.
From this, it could be seen how terrifying the youth was. One had to know that the Eighth Prince was an innate immortal with six strands of fortuitous opportunities. Even so, he could not shake off the youth.
Three years later.
After confirming that the Ninth Summit did not have Martial Aunt Miao Yue’s arrangements, Jiang Lan and Xiao Yu left the Jade Pool.
This time, they had stayed in the Jade Pool for thirty years. He wondered how his master and the rest felt.
Perhaps they would think that they were working hard for something.
Before returning to the Ninth Summit, Jiang Lan sent Xiao Yu to the Third Summit.
Xiao Yu’s mother was going to be here. She had to ask about the situation.
Jiang Lan did not stay on the Third Summit. Instead, he rode his sword and landed at the foot of the Ninth Summit. He walked up step by step. The weeds had already covered the road, as if no one had walked on it for many years.
This was inevitable. Although some people would walk, if there was no path to do so, they would choose to fly on their swords instead.
“Looks like I’ll need to take care of it sometime later.”
When he returned to the courtyard, there were still weeds growing here. However, the place was small, so it didn’t take too much time.
The vegetative egg and the Udumbara Flower were not in good condition. It had been many years since someone watered them with spirit liquid.
Jiang Lan then proceeded to water them.
They should be able to recover in a few days.
They have been alive for almost eight hundred years. The vitality of these two were very tenacious.
Without much thought, he began to take care of the courtyard and the flowers here.
However, the house was about to crumble as well. He needed to renovate it when he had time over the next few years.
However, halfway through, he heard the youth and the Eighth Prince reciting his name again.
He had already taught them the second saber move. They should be fine for now. Why were they calling for him again?
Soon, he heard about the reason why they were calling out to him.
“Fist God, the four of us are going out to train.”
It was the youth’s voice.
Jiang Lan was confused. Did they need to tell him about their training?
Then, he understood it after he saw the four of them going in four different directions. It was hard to say if they would encounter any danger.
With him keeping a lookout for them, it would be much safer.
The youth was naturally not worried about his own safety. He was worried about others.
However, were these four people training because they had no experience in fighting enemies?
According to the youth, the four of them were going to an area with more vicious creatures, the Water Breaking Mountain Range in the south of the Western Wastelands.
There were many strange things there, as well as many demons and devils.
All four of them were True Immortals. They were powerful, so they should be fine if they went.
After that, he didn’t care much about them anymore.
However, he knew that the Dragon Race, the Heavenly Feather Phoenix Race, and the Qilin Race were already here.
This training was proposed by them.
It was as if they really wanted them to win because if they won. Even if the four weren’t representing their own race, it would still be of great help to their race if they won.
After they set off, Jiang Lan continued to take care of his courtyard, but he felt something fluctuating outside Kunlun.
It seemed to be able to affect the aura of the Netherworld.
There was a high chance that someone had started building an arena for the fortuitous opportunity battle.
Half a month later, Jiang Lan finished taking care of the Ninth Summit. His Senior Sister was following behind him, so his progress was very fast.
“During this period of time, Mei Li and the other two will be coming over to learn about array formations. Junior Sister Siya will also be coming over to use the Netherworld Aura to temper her immortal body,” Xiao Yu said as she cleaned up the weeds.
Her Junior Brother did not let her take the lead.
Therefore, she could only act as an assistant.
“Isn’t Senior Sister quite familiar with them?” Jiang Lan looked at Xiao Yu and asked.
It was naturally better to let his Senior Sister receive these people.
Although his Senior Sister was the Jade Pool Goddess and was a personal disciple of the Third Summit, she was also a member of the Ninth Summit.
“Junior Brother, what will you do without me?” Xiao Yu patted her chest with a smile.
Jiang Lan felt that without his Senior Sister, he just needed to lure them in.
It would have nothing to do with him after that.
He just had to be polite and not make enemies.
However, since Senior Sister was familiar with them, it was naturally nothing much for her to go receive them.
He was indeed not as familiar with his juniors as his Senior Sister.
After that, Xiao Yu went to the Third Summit to look for Lin Siya while Jiang Lan planned to go out.
He wanted to see what was going on with the arena outside. If he could understand it, it might be of help to him in the future.
There must be some secrets in it since it could connect to the Heaven Realm and the Netheroworld.
When he arrived outside Kunlun, he realized that the road had changed again.
However, even without walking out, he could still see the fortuitous opportunity battle platform in the distance.
The arena floated in midair. Below it were nine independent black pillars, and high up in the sky were nine white jade pillars.
It was as if the pillars below it were used to communicate with the Netherworld while the pillows above it were used to communicate with the Heaven Realm.
On top of that, there were twelve places.
“Are these for the twelve with Deity Positions?”
Jiang Lan frowned as he looked at them.
“In other words, at that time, I need to be present here. That means that my main body won’t be able to watch the fortuitous opportunity battle.”
This way, he needed an excuse to enter seclusion.
It was rather troublesome.
Unless he multitasked.
However, it was unlikely. At that time, he would have to resist the pressure from the Heaven Realm and the Netherworld.
Therefore, it would be too arrogant to multitask.
If his Senior Sister wanted to stay and accompany him, he would give her the Mountain Sea Mirror.
They could still see what was happening at the scene.
With this thought in mind, Jiang Lan walked towards the fortuitous opportunity battle platform to have a better feel of it.
However, before he could take more than two steps, he suddenly received feedback from his One Leaf Vision.
It was a feedback from the heavenly secrets. It wasn’t him, but someone else.
Someone related to him.
Then, Jiang Lan looked at the dot in the Deity Position.
The three dots that belonged to the Eighth Prince, the youth, and Qing Mu changed.
These three were being plotted against.
“Is someone trying to weaken me or target me?”
