CSG - Chapter 3088: Visiting in Person

As fairy Hao Yue did not have much time left, Ming Dong did not even waste a moment. He basically seized every second, immediately leaving the Tian Yuan clan with the crystal coffin that contained fairy Hao Yue. He hopped through interplanar teleportation formations and returned to the Prosper Plane as quickly as possible.

With his departure, Yun Xiaoyan and Ming Xie obviously would not stay behind. They both followed him back to the Prosper Plane.

In the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng, Ming Dong sped along, requesting to see the Anatta Grand Exalt as quickly as he could.

As the ninth majesty of the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng, he was probably one of the people closest to the Anatta Grand Exalt in the Saints’ World. As a result, he successfully saw the Anatta Grand Exalt on the highest floor of the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng.

“Greetings, master!” At the very top of the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng, Ming Dong dropped to his knees and bowed as the disciple.

The Anatta Grand Exalt sat in the middle of the air, enveloped by the light of ways and wrapped in the laws like a god. He seemed to be seated there, but he also seemed to be presiding over all the laws, giving off a supreme might.

The Anatta Grand Exalt did not say anything in response, so Ming Dong continued, “I’ve been in such a hurry to see master because I hope I can get master’s assistance with something.” As he said that, Ming Dong took out the crystal coffin and pleaded, “Master, she’s called fairy Hao Yue, an acquaintance of mine. She’s heavily injured now. A strand of extremely powerful Laws of Fire has been deposited in her soul, which threatens her life at all times. As a result, I hope master can help out and save her.”

The Anatta Grand Exalt remained silent, making no response.

“Master, please save fairy Hao Yue. In the current Saints’ World, probably only master is capable of something like that,” Ming Dong continued. This time, he even began to sound like he was begging the Anatta Grand Exalt.

He had already learnt from Jian Chen that fairy Hao Yue could last for a decade at most. If they still could not come up with a way to save her during those ten years, then all that awaited her was death.

The Anatta Grand Exalt remained silent. Only after almost an entire minute did his voice ring out, “My disciple, you don’t have too many ties of karma with this person, so whether I choose to save her or not does not have too much to do with you.”

The Anatta Grand Exalt’s voice was completely devoid of any emotion, which made it seem merciless and cold. It was not adorned with any feelings. Even his voice incorporated everything, possessing all the sounds of the world, making it impossible to distinguish anything.

Ming Dong’s heart immediately sank when he heard that, but he did not give up. He pleaded painfully, “Master, only you can save fairy Hao Yue now. I hope master can help me out. I can’t just watch her die like this.”

“You can go. Her fate has nothing to do with you. You should send the person who wants to save her the most to ask me instead. However, I am a sovereign of the world, so if you want my help, I’ll have to judge the person who wishes to save her and see just what kind of price they’re willing to pay for this.” The Anatta Grand Exalt’s voice rang out.

“Master-”

Ming Dong refused to give up. Right when he was about to continue with his pleas, the Grand Exalt of Ancient Paths suddenly appeared before him. “Child, save your pleas and follow what your master says. Send the person who actually wants to save her to ask your master in person. Your master is a sovereign of the world after all. He represents the will of the heavenly ways, where his word is law. Since he’s already said that, then you obviously can’t make your master change his mind through your abilities alone.”

The Grand Exalt of Ancient Paths’ words made Ming Dong calm down. Perhaps he was already aware that he could not change his master’s mind no matter how he pleaded. With no other choice, he could only leave with gritted teeth and a heart full of regret.

Do I really have to tell Jian Chen to come here in person? But given master’s status, can Jian Chen really produce a bargaining chip that can persuade master to help him?” Leaving the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng, Ming Dong felt uneasy inside. He was unsure about what to do.

He could not say he knew Jian Chen through and through, but he had a good understanding about him. As such, he was aware that even if the Tian Yuan clan offered up all of their wealth, it would not be enough to catch his master’s attention given the height his master stood at.

After hesitating for a bit, Ming Dong left the Prosper Plane powerlessly and in dejection. He returned to the Tian Yuan clan through the teleportation formations.

“How is it, Ming Dong? Has fairy Hao Yue’s injuries been healed?” Jian Chen, who had already spent several days waiting around anxiously, immediately appeared before him the moment he returned to the Tian Yuan clan.

Ming Dong was dejected. He said gloomily, “Brother, I’ve tried everything that I could. I really can’t help you out with this.” Ming Dong told Jian Chen about everything that had happened in the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng.

“Send the person who wants to save fairy Hao Yue the most?” Jian Chen’s expression changed at first before sinking into his thoughts with that. Out of the people who wanted to save fairy Hao Yue the most, there was Yun Wufeng as well as him.

Did the Anatta Grand Exalt want him or Yun Wufeng to visit the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng in person?

Jian Chen had a good guess about Yun Wufeng’s background. He was only a regular great elder of the Moon God Hall. With his cultivation as a Chaotic Prime, he had a name for himself throughout all the planes in the Saints’ World. Even among peak organisations, he possessed some status.

However, before a colossal organisation like the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng, Yun Wufeng was truly a little lacklustre. He probably did not even have the right to make it through the entrance.

“Looks like I’ll have to go in person. Fortunately, I still have some contribution left with the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng from returning the Anatta Tower. I hope I’ll be able to use it.” Jian Chen made up his mind quickly.

He had no idea what kind of danger he would face in meeting with the Anatta Grand Exalt this time, but fairy Hao Yue’s life was in danger right now. He could not simply stand by and let her die.

Even if he had to go through fire and water, through thick and through thin, he had to make an attempt.

With my current strength, I won’t be able to hide anything before Grand Exalts. Not only will the mask that senior Mo Tianyun gave me completely lose effect, but even the sword spirits will be exposed. I definitely can’t bring the sword spirits with me on this trip to the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng,” Jian Chen calculated. He was a successor from the Immortals’ World’s side, so he had an extremely sensitive identity. As a result, he faced tremendous pressure in meeting with the Anatta Grand Exalt this time. He was very unsettled and anything but composed inside.

In the end, he left the sword spirits in the Watercloud Hall. Fortunately, the sword spirits had already grown much more powerful. They could move around individually without relying on Jian Chen anymore.

Afterwards, he left the precious resources he had obtained from the Darkstar World in the Watercloud Hall. He only brought along a few random resources purely as protocol. Then he set off on the journey to the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng valiantly with fairy Hao Yue.

As for the piece of Fortune God Jade, Jian Chen had brought it with him. He hoped it could serve as his final bargaining chip when it mattered.

After all, treasures like Fortune God Jade were extremely rare. He was aware that the Anatta Grand Exalt already possessed one, but he believed that even Grand Exalts would like to get their hands on as much of this treasure as possible.

As long as he could save fairy Hao Yue, he would even go as far as to give up a supreme treasure like the Fortune God Jade.
