“Do you have anything you want to ask? Or do you need help with anything?”
In the Ice Cicada Forest, Imperial Lord Xi He asked Jiang Lan.
After covering the diagram with his One Leaf Vision, he put it away and asked the question he wanted to ask.
“After I separate with my Deity Position, how do I hand it to others?”
If he wanted to leave the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace, he had to complete the task. If he didn’t care, how could he complete the karma?
Therefore, he needed to figure this out.
“When you are about to leave the Deity Position, you will have one choice. That is to pass the Deity Position to others.
At that time, it will depend on whether you want to pass down the opportunity of the Deity Position or the entire Deity Position.
If it is just a fortuitous opportunity, the Deity Position will automatically remain in the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace and be controlled by Imperial Lord Youdu.
I have already communicated with him and he has agreed very quickly,” explained Imperial Lord Xi He.
“After the Central Palace is obtained, how much time does the Grand Desolate World have left?” Jiang Lan asked again.
There wasn’t much time in the Grand Desolate World to begin with. If the Central Palace was obtained and the others were able to fuse with their own Deity Positions, it meant that the time left would be reduced to near zero.
It was not that the people of the twelve Deity Positions had caused the Grand Desolate World to encounter a calamity ahead of time.
It’s just that they have made preparations in advance.
If they waited until the Deity Positions could no longer support it, it would already be too late.
“Not long.” Imperial Lord Xi He was silent for a moment before saying.
“If not for the fortuitous opportunity battle, there would still be about three hundred years before the darkness descends.
But after the fortuitous opportunity battle began, the time was halved.
As for exactly how long we still have left, that will depend on how fast the others are progressing.”
“Senior, do you know who the Ancient Imperial Palace’s enemy is?” Jiang Lan asked again.
If it was halved after three hundred years, that meant that he only had close to two hundred years.
Time was running out.
However, his heart didn’t surge because of this. The path to becoming stronger still needed to be taken step by step. He wouldn’t stop.
“The enemy hidden behind the darkness and under the night?” Imperial Lord Xi He sighed.
“You will receive your answer when you go to the Ancient Imperial West Palace.
You are different from the others. Entering the Ancient Imperial West Palace might give you the most benefits. As for your future path…”
Imperial Lord Xi He gave Jiang Lan a deep look and said.
“Perhaps there will be an answer.”
Jiang Lan lowered his eyebrows.
Did Imperial Lord Xi He know what path he was going to take?
Perhaps he was just trying to sound him out. Imperial Lord Xi He was powerful and had many methods.
If he wasn’t on guard, he would be easily tricked.
So he remained silent.
“Speaking of which, which summit are you from?” Imperial Lord Xi He didn’t pay much attention to Jiang Lan’s silence, only asking this question out of curiosity.
Jiang Lan remained silent again.
“Then have you thought of your title?” Imperial Lord Xi He asked again.
Jiang Lan shook his head slightly.
He really didn’t think too much about it. He didn’t really care what the title was.
He would let nature take its course. At that time, he would think of something.
“There’s no problem. I’m going to prepare now. There’ll be news about me in three to five days. You’ll know the details when the time comes.
Therefore, you need to engrave the array formation in the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace within three days.
Is there a problem?” Imperial Lord Xi He asked.
“No problem,” Jiang Lan replied.
He already knew the array formation very well. There was no problem.
It wouldn’t take much time to inscribe it. He just needed some time.
“The great calamity is about to arrive. Will you be afraid?” Imperial Lord Xi He, who originally intended to leave, suddenly asked.
Jiang Lan remained silent for a while before shaking his head.
“I don’t know.”
He was just vigilant and trying his best to face it. Was he afraid?
Perhaps he was, but it didn’t seem like he was either.
He would not dodge or retreat.
This was his responsibility. He had to face it.
Even if he started to feel fear, he still had to move forward. There were some things that could not be stopped just by fear.
He had promised the people from the Ancient Imperial Lower Palace that he would walk their path in the future.
He did not have much ambition or grand ideas.
He had accepted their gifts so he had to bear the responsibility.
That was all.
After that, Jiang Lan left the Ice Cicada Forest.
Imperial Lord Xi He watched Jiang Lan leave and suddenly felt curious.
“With his strength, it shouldn’t be a problem for him to tell me which summit he is from. After all, there are many people on the various summits, so it’s impossible to guess.
But he just doesn’t want to say it.
From the looks of it, there is a 90% chance that he would be found out if he said it.
Imperial Lord Xi He looked at the Ninth Summit and smiled.
“In terms of personality, they are indeed somewhat similar.
Jiang Lan left the Ice Cicada Forest and disappeared on the spot.
After disappearing a few times, he appeared near the old inn and walked in.
At the same time, he went to thank the innkeeper for his care for the past twenty years.
Otherwise, he wouldn’t have been able to comprehend for twenty years without being disturbed.
There were naturally factors related to his master, but if the innkeeper was unwilling, he still could not stay safely for twenty years.
When he arrived at the inn, he asked for good wine. He had to wait for the innkeeper to return in the afternoon.
He was just waiting for the innkeeper to return before thanking him.
Sitting in a corner, Jiang Lan closed his eyes to rest.
He had always been like this.
It was like this the first time he came, and it was the same now.
He still remembered the first time he came, he had met his Senior Sister.
At that time, his Senior Sister was still aloof. He naturally felt that she was beautiful, but he didn’t have any other thoughts.
Now that he thought about it, he didn’t know why but he felt that his Senior Sister from back then was somewhat reminiscent.
It was not that he missed his Senior Sister’s aloofness, but he missed the time when they met.
At that time, he never thought that his Senior Sister would marry him and accompany him forever.
With this thought in mind, Jiang Lan suddenly opened his eyes.
“Am I starting to miss the past?”
He was surprised.
Normally, he wouldn’t miss the past, so…
Imperial Lord Xi He’s words that had been cut in half over three hundred years still planted an uneasy seed in his heart?
It was not a bad thing. It was normal to feel uneasy in the face of a great calamity.
He seemed to be worried that he would not be able to survive this great calamity.
After that, he stopped thinking about it and closed his eyes to rest again.
He still had to pick his Senior Sister up later.
At this moment, the youth walked into the inn and realized that after his big brother closed his eyes to rest, he immediately went to the counter.
Hong Ya moved aside.
“We meet again. This time, I have to pull Big Brother to the spiritual inn no matter what.”
The youth was full of confidence.
He had grown a lot over the years. It was definitely possible.
Hong Ya was also trying to enter the spiritual inn. If she could succeed, she could ask for something.
However, they soon stood at the counter dejectedly.
Jiang Lan was completely immovable.
What was going on?
“Are you two idiots?” The Eighth Prince stood in front of the counter and sneered.
Didn’t these two know who his Brother-in-law was?
He was the Unparalleled Fist God, a powerful figure in the Grand Desolate World.
Were these two messing around?
Oh yeah, they didn’t know.
“Stupid dragon, you can scold me, but you can’t scold Hong Ya,” the youth stared at the Eighth Prince and said righteously.
“You idiot.” The Eighth Prince looked at the youth and said alone.
The youth was confused.
“Didn’t you say that I can scold you?” The Eighth Prince said.
