Rebirth of the Supreme Celestial Being - Chapter 566 - There has always been
Chapter 566 - There has always been
Edited by Rose
At this time, a female disciple spoke, “But, isn’t it possible for every disciple with poor conditions to apply for a work-study program? There should be a lot of vacancies in the academy. Why don’t you go to the work-study program and pick a place, but instead go to Huarong Sword Immortal? To begin with, Huarong Sword Immortal’s Little Penglai is not a place open to the outside world.”
Shen Qinghe couldn’t help but look up at the female disciple. Unexpectedly, there was another person in this room that was not led astray. When the female disciple said this, she was attacked.
“Do you believe our Alchemy Division is the same as their Dao Division? Every time we make pills, it takes at least one day, at most one month, where do we have any spare time to do work-study?”
“That’s right, we are Alchemists. in the future, we will be invited to be guest Alchemists by great sects or important families. How can we waste time on this?” The female disciple was speechless at the time and stepped back a few steps, frightened. Shen Qinghe just raised his brow, slightly raised his lips, and smiled.
He laughed at these people overestimating their own abilities, actually believing Alchemists were that valued.
In the world, the status of Alchemists was really high and frightening, but those Divine Clan families are not stupid. If they were good for nothing alchemists, the Divine Clans would never provide for them. Most of the guest Alchemists the families invite are selected from the Alchemist Alliance.
But can people who can enter the Alchemist Alliance be ordinary Alchemists?
What’s even more ridiculous is that these people had actually also provoked Yan Tianhen to his face.
Don’t look at how Yan Tianhen usually didn’t act like a prince at all; however, he was still the second in succession for the throne. In the East Courtyard, who knows how many people were placed by King Ye and his Consort to protect Yan Tianhen? As long as he expressed his intention to punish these people, they wouldn’t even know how they would die. Why would Yan Tianhen even need to act himself?
In the end, they were still too young and naive.
Shen Qinghe narrowed his eyes and thought back when he was still with Yan Huanyu, they once went out and went into an inn run by outlaws in a foreign country, but at the time Shen Qinghe did not see that, so he entered with Yan Huanyu.
The next morning when he woke up, Shen Qinghe discovered that the shopkeeper and waiters were dead, and the lobby was covered in blood.
Yan Huanyu walked to him with his clothes neat and radiant, and when Shen Qinghe opened his mouth to start asking questions, he took the initiative to explain, “The thieves wanted to rob money and kill us in the middle of the night, and were strangled by the shadow guards. I didn’t learn about it until I got up in the early morning.”
Shen Qinghe looked at Tong Zishu again, and he became more sympathetic. If this youth continued to make trouble, he probably wouldn’t even know how he died.
Although he met someone with a rotten heart like Tong Zishu, it didn’t affect Yan Tianhen’s mood. He swayed out of the Academy and swayed to Little Penglai.
Although Lin Xuanzhi was busy catching Fiends and arranging patrols, he still had leisure time.
When Yan Tianhen appeared on Little Penglai again, Lin Xuanzhi had already opened up the space in the Soul Plate, meditated in it, and absorbed the spiritual energy.
When Lin Xuanzhi meditated, he had the appearance of a master. When he closed his eyes, the mountains and rivers and stars were all in him, all matters could not enter his eyes, and all living things entered his heart.
Clothes as white as snow, hair as black as ink, and lips as red as cinnabar.
Lin Xuanzhi sat on the top of the mountain, surrounded by clouds. Spiritual Qi seemed to turn into an essence, lingering around him, dimly generating smoke.
Yan Tianhen always felt that Soul Plate’s space was not like anything else. There were a sun and moon, a land, mountains, and rivers. Other than time passing faster, and the rich spiritual energy, compared to other places and the outside world, there was not much difference.
Yan Tianhen found a chair made of rattan and sat there while enjoying the breeze and eating fruit. Then he watched the image of Lin Xuanzhi meditating from a distance; his entire person looked like a nun.
After a while, Lin Xuanzhi finished one circulation of spiritual Qi and opened his eyes.
This Soul Plate was connected with his soul. As soon as Yan Tianhen came in, he noticed it. Naturally, he knew someone came.
However, since Lin Xuanzhi was completing one great circulation of spiritual energy at the time, so he could not give up halfway. After he finished, he flew down and went to Yan Tianhen’s side.
Yan Tianhen ate the last peach, then stood up with a smile and said, “Huarong Gege, I haven’t seen you in a few days. How is the matter with the Fiend?”
Lin Xuanzhi spoke, “The Fiend has not yet been found, and there is no trace of him near the sea. We don’t know if it has returned back to Jade Ocean City or is still lurking in the sea. During this time, although classes resumed as normal, however, don’t go out as you please.”
Yan Tianhen nodded very cleverly and obediently then said, “I know. Does Huarong Gege still have to go out on inspection duty?”
Lin Xuanzhi said, “Every seven days everyone takes turns, I went on the first day, so I will have to wait for a few days for the next turn.”
Yan Tianhen said, “After the news got out, the Divine clans should send someone here to investigate.”
Lin Xuanzhi nodded and said, “Today, the academy has received the news from the Royal Heavenly Capital and the other five families. They each sent soldiers and planned to come to Ethereal City to help. But we turned them down.”
Yan Tianhen’s eyes turned slightly, he thought about it and understood the key point. He said, “It should be refused. After all, this is a place beyond the mundane world, there should be no Divine clan troops.”
“However, the Eastern Xuan clan and the Longyao clan are still planning to send troops to learn more about the situation. That is also normal.”
Yan Tianhen pondered it for a moment. The overseas land where Myriad Dao Academy was located was on the territory adjacent to the North and East Lands. These two Lands had good timing and advantages of location. It was normal for them to take a look. After all, it involved the safety of their Lands.
Lin Xuanzhi said again, “Fuyao Sect will also send someone.”
Yan Tianhen raised his eyebrows and said, “My Master’s sect? Why would they send someone here?”
Lin Xuanzhi said, “The saying that Fiends would appear was originally deduced by the Esteemed Lan Yue. Now that Fiends really appeared, he naturally wants to have a look.”
Yan Tianhen was delighted and said, “If that’s really the case, then I regard every cloud has a silver lining.”
Myriad Dao Academy’s rules were stringent if it were not for business, it would rarely contact the outside world. Even Fuyao Sect, which was very famous in Nine Lands, would be rejected as well.
However, because Esteemed Lan Yue was a brilliant Prophet with many achievements, outstanding strength, and was unwilling to take part in the secular world, he had always held a position of an honored guest to Myriad Dao Academy.
It was because of this reason that it was simple for Esteemed Lan Yue to recommend Lin Xuanzhi to Myriad Dao.
Yan Tianhen had not seen his Martial Brothers ever since he came to the academy. Now that he had this opportunity, he was certainly very happy.
Lin Xuanzhi saw that he was so cheerful, he smiled and said, “Esteemed Lan Yue will definitely come. It is still unknown whether other people will come with him.”
“Oh, it’s good that my master can come.” Yan Tianhen’s eyes turned into crescent moons with laughter and said, “As long as there is someone who I can see, my heart will feel happy.”
Lin Xuanzhi’s eyes were a little soft and asked, “How has your medicinal pills been refined?”
Yan Tianhen said, “I haven’t started refining it yet. During this time, I’m trying to refine other medicinal pills for practice. The refining methods of this Silver Frost Poison Pill are different from that of ordinary pills, so I have to get familiar with them first. That’s right, I would also like to thank Huarong Gege for giving me the spiritual plants. Did it take a lot of effort?”
Lin Xuanzhi said, “It was just a little effort, don’t worry about it.”
Yan Tianhen wanted to transfer his contribution points to Lin Xuanzhi, but Lin Xuanzhi refused.
“These things are just mere worldly possessions. If you really want to repay the kindness, when you are free, you might as well come here to talk with me more.” Lin Xuanzhi faintly said.
Yan Tianhen was stunned and recognized the loneliness in the faint voice. He said, “Even Huarong Gege can feel lonely?”
Lin Xuanzhi said, “Yes, a person will naturally feel lonely after a long time. People are not vegetation, who can be unfeeling?”
Yan Tianhen blinked and said, “But in the future, you will become an immortal.”
Lin Xuanzhi looked at him and said, “That’s nothing more than what the people of the world expect of me. I’ve never thought of becoming an immortal, and I’ve never thought of leaving the Nine Lands alone.”
Yan Tianhen was subverted. Wasn’t everyone who sought the Dao aiming for immortality? But the person that the Prophets pushed as the most likely person to become immortal, had an appearance of being disillusioned, lonely, and had no wish of becoming immortal at all…
“My wish is to protect the person I care about, to see him live well.” Lin Xuanzhi smiled slowly and said, “He is my Dao. If I am alone, I will not be happy, even if I do become an immortal.”
“You …..” Yan Tianhen paused and said, “Is that the person you like? Do you actually have someone in your heart?”
Lin Xuanzhi said, “There has always been.”
Yan Tianhen, “…..”
Yan Tianhen has an indescribable bitterness in his heart.
He doesn’t know who the person in Lin Xuanzhi’s words was, but as long as there existed such a person, he would be unable to stand it and feel lost. But, where is this person?
He didn’t know at all that Lin Xuanzhi lived in loneliness for so many years, and lived on this cold and lonely island day after day. Or, even if this person knew it, he didn’t care at all that Lin Xuanzhi was suffering from this miserable world. How could this kind of person deserve Lin Xuanzhi’s concern?
Yan Tianhen murmured a question, “Have you two ever been together?”
Lin Xuanzhi said with some nostalgia, “We were together once.” But now we are separated.
Yan Tianhen didn’t know where he got the courage from and suddenly opened his mouth, “You hold him in your heart, but he doesn’t care about you at all. Otherwise, he will definitely stay with you no matter what, and he will never let you stay here alone, indifferent, not even showing his face. I don’t know who he is, but I don’t think he is worthy of your fondness at all.”
There was a flash of consternation in Lin Xuanzhi’s eyes. He saw the anger and injustice in Yan Tianhen’s eyes. Even Yan Tianhen didn’t know it but when he said these words, his eyes began to turn red.
After Yan Tianhen finished speaking, he immediately regretted it.
Since when did he become a person who would say these sharp and unkind words? On one hand, he truly felt that this person wasn’t worth Lin Xuanzhi’s affection, but on the other hand, he was clear about his own heart, he was jealous of Lin Xuanzhi’s beloved.
However the words had already been spoken, Yan Tianhen could only stiffen his neck, hang his head low and his lips did not say anything.
Lin Xuanzhi stared blankly, then raised his hand and gently patted Yan Tianhen’s head. “You don’t understand. It’s not that he doesn’t want to come to see me, but he just can’t. Besides, the fact that I like him is my business. He doesn’t know about my feelings for him. Naturally, I can’t force him to have the same feelings for me.”
