PBS - Chapter 2256 - Ye Zhaoxian's Words

Qin Nan's gaze sharpened.

Ye Zhaoxian straightened his face and said, "Elder Zhou, I wasn't competing for anything in the past. I was focusing on my own path, and I still am the same."

"I was forced to join hands with Cang in the end. Without his help, I won't be able to be reborn either."

"Cang didn't want to be reincarnated so he could fulfill his plans better, so was I."

Zhou Xundao waved his hand and said with a sigh, "As a matter of fact, I didn't have a right to be angry at you. We have only met once coincidentally. I'm not someone important to you, and you aren't someone important to me. What you did was your own business."

Ye Zhaoxian took a sip of tea in silence.

They might seem close to one another in the past, but there was still a gap between them. 

Qin Nan frowned and said, "Senior...Cultivator Ye, may I ask what Cang's plan is? And why did the battle happen in the first place?"

Ye Zhaoxian's arm shuddered. He said, "It's not a big deal telling you the truth now."

"You should know by now that Cang has already become the son of the Origin Force when he was a Heaven Highness. He naturally became the master of the Origin Force after achieving the Supreme Highness Realm."

"If he succeeded, he would become the strongest cultivator without a doubt."

"Therefore, Zhou Di had to wage a war against him before it happens!"

Qin Nan was startled.

Was the cause of the ancient battle really that simple?

Ye Zhaoxian smiled, "Are you feeling that it sounds too simple to be true? Everything was indeed that simple on the surface. Cang and Zhou Di were nemeses. No one was willing to let the other become the strongest in the Primary Upper Realm."

"They had been fighting for countless years. It was time for them to settle the score."

"That being said, I personally feel there were other reasons behind it too."

"There's another thing I can tell you too. When the four of us visited the Blue Heavens and ventured deeper into it, the Sacred Monument of the Immortals reacted strangely!" 

Qin Nan asked with a confused look, "The Sacred Monument of the Immortals? Was it related to the Ten Immortals?"

Ye Zhaoxian was startled, "You didn't know about it?"

Zhou Xundao smiled when he saw Qin Nan's reaction, "Senior Ye, he might be a Master of Dao and has awakened the memories of Zhou Di and Huangfu Jue, but there are many things he doesn't know yet."

"Qin Nan, the Sacred Monument of the Immortals is indeed related to the Ten Immortals."

"When the Heavens and Earth first appeared together with the Martial Dao, many tribes rose and invented their own paths and arts. It took tens of thousands of years before Heaven Highness existed."

"These Heaven Highnesses joined hands to break the barrier of the Primary Upper Realm searching for the legendary Supreme Highness Realm and discovered the Blue Heavens for the first time."

"They also discovered the Sacred Monument of the Immortals."

Qin Nan listed carefully. The words were depicted in the form of images in his mind.

He knew Zhou Xundao was talking about a time way before the era of the four Supreme Highnesses.

"There are much terrifying existence and danger in the Blue Heavens, except for the Sacred Monument of the Immortals. Not only was it not hostile toward the Heaven Highnesses, it even saved their lives too."

"The Sacred Monument of the Immortals told the Heaven Highnesses it was searching for successors."

"Since then, countless cultivators in the Primary Upper Realm began to rise as it welcomed its greatest era, the same era where great talents like Zhou Di, Cang, Huangfu Jue, and Senior Ye appeared."

"Zhou Di and Huangfu Jue achieved the peak Ruler Realm and managed to kill Heaven Highnesses to build up their reputation. They also carried out the Sacred Monument of the Immortals' suggestion of training more talents, which narrowed down to the Ten Immortals today."

"Many formidable factions and authorities in the Heaven Highness Realm believed the Ten Immortals will rise as the leaders of the new era, but unfortunately, the ancient battle broke out before the Ten Immortals have risen."

"Xiang Zun could have easily become the fifth Supreme Highness with his talents..."

Zhou Xundao sounded a little sorry.

"I kept hearing the Ten Immortals are carrying a great secret. What is it?"

Qin Nan straightened his figure.

"I'm sorry I can't really answer your question as I was never involved in the Immortals. Only the other three Supreme Highnesses and the Ten Immortals knew the secret."

Ye Zhaoxian shook his head and said, "However, after the strange behavior of the Sacred Monument of the Immortals, the four of us tried to explore deeper into the Blue Heavens, but only Cang and Zhou Di made it."

"They were gone for half a year."

"The interesting thing was, when Cang and Zhou Di returned from the Blue Heavens, they did not mention a word what they went through. Not long after their return, Cang carried out his plan to murder Zhou Xiao in order to become the Master of the Origin Force, which led to the epic battle."

Qin Nan's eyes glittered.

Bai Zhongsheng mentioned there was something mysterious about the ancient battle too.

After taking Ye Zhaoxian's words into consideration too...

"Well, it means we won't be able to learn the truth for the time being."

Qin Nan shook his head.

There was no way Cang would tell him the truth.

Zhou Di was the other person who knew the truth, but he was already reincarnated on Qin Nan.

"Qin Nan, I've sensed that Cang has made his moves on you. One of the Trio Warriors, Wuwang was reincarnated on your friend, and the woman out there is his daughter's reincarnation too. Am I right?" Ye Zhaoxian asked.

"You're right."

Qin Nan's heart sank.

"I was close to Zhou Di and Elder Zhou. I felt sorry for having to join hands with Cang. Take this scroll and open it when the right time comes. It will help you to overcome your problems."

Ye Zhaoxian took out a green scroll.

"Cultivator Ye...you have my thanks."

Qin Nan received the scroll and brought his fists together.

"You are a lot more polite than Zhou Di and Huangfu Jue."

Ye Zhaoxian chuckled as he rose to his feet, "Now, I will have to prepare myself to cultivate in seclusion to raise my cultivation to the peak Ruler Realm. One more thing, you should come to the Blue Heavens next month. The place to achieve the Heaven Highness Realm will appear."

"The Primary Upper Realm will soon have new Heaven Highnesses, so you should be prepared for it."

Qin Nan brought his fists together and said, "Thank you for your advice."

He and Zhou Xundao exchanged glances before leaving the Children of Peace's Sacred Palace.

The door of the palace slowly shut. Its brilliance began to spread and wrapped around the Thirty-Second Small Immortal Realm like a giant web.
