CSG - Chapter 3111: Returning to Lore City

“Bi Lian, I’ll leave what happens next up to you. I still need to pay a visit to home,” Jian Chen said to Bi Lian before having a simple conversation with some of his old acquaintances in the hall. Afterwards, he left the Flame Empire with Shangguan Muer’

It had already been several centuries since he left this world. Now that he returned, he was obviously eager to visit home. Even when he saw so many good friends, he could only catch up with them in the future.

The Gesun Kingdom was still the same Gesun Kingdom as before. Even though a super organisation existed behind the Gesun Kingdom, their territory had not expanded by much. It remained the same size as when Jian Chen left the world.

Despite that, the Gesun Kingdom still possessed a supreme status in the world, receiving the respect of all people. All of this was because the king of the Gesun Kingdom was the past human sovereign Jian Chen’s father-in-law.

The Gesun Kingdom had not grown larger, but Lore City had. The entire city expanded outwards again and again, becoming even mightier than before. Even its prosperity had reached an unprecedented peak.

Due to the presence of the Changyang clan, the current Lore City had already become the holiest place on the Tian Yuan Continent, the last place to be tarnished.

Even with the war and chaos that had erupted over the years on the Tian Yuan Continent, it had not reached Lore City at all.

On this day, two figures appeared silently on the extremely wide and spacious road outside Lore City. They stood in the centre of the road and dazed out before the majestic city. Their faces were filled with emotion.

The spacious road was extremely busy. Many merchants, mercenaries, and people of all shapes and sizes flowed in and out of Lore City, but without exception, no one noticed the figures that had suddenly appeared in the centre of the road. Countless carriages and pedestrians actually passed through the two of them without the slightest obstruction as if they resided in a completely different space.

The two of them were Jian Chen and Shangguan Mu’er.

“Lore City, I’ve finally returned! The city has changed drastically, but the familiar smell and feeling hasn’t vanished at all.” Jian Chen gazed at Lore City before him with mixed feelings. Everything that happened when he roamed the Tian Yuan Continent back then immediately flashed through his head, which caused him a multitude of emotions.

“It’s a pity that Xiao Bao has already left here.” Compared to Jian Chen’s excitement, Shangguan Mu’er was in lower spirits. The last and only thing she was still attached to on the Tian Yuan Continent was her son, Shangguan Aojian.

“Mu’er, don’t worry. Aojian hasn’t gone to a higher world. As long as he hasn’t gone to a higher world, you don’t have to worry about his safety.” Jian Chen comforted her.

“Once we return from the Xuanhuang Microcosm, we’ll go to other worlds and find Xiao Bao, and then we can take him to the Saints’ World with us. In lower spaces where resources are scarce, he’ll struggle very much to increase his strength from here on out,” said Shangguan Mu’er.

“Yeah. Let’s enter the city first!” Jian Chen nodded before holding Shangguan Mu’er’s hand and entering Lore City by following the road at a regular person’s pace.

At that moment, Jian Chen was like a mortal. As a matter of fact, he seemed like someone from the country entering a city for the first time. He looked around the entire way as if he was curious about everything here.

“Compared to the past, Lore City has become much, much more prosperous.” A faint smile remained on Jian Chen’s face the entire time as if he wanted to walk through every single street in Lore City and cover every single corner. His mind had become extremely calm and peaceful at that moment. He even began to give off a harmonious presence before he knew it.

“Everything has already changed drastically here. It sure gives off the feeling that everything is still around, but the people have all changed,” Shangguan Mu’er said as she accompanied Jian Chen.

“The only thing that has changed is its shell. Its heart remains the same as before. It’s never changed.” Jian Chen smiled in great delight. He was clearly thoroughly elated.

Before they knew it, the two of them had already arrived at the Changyang clan. A powerful barrier enveloped the colossal estate, so outsiders could not approach it at all.

There were many experts in the estate. Not only were there numerous Saint Emperors, but there were even Origin realm experts present as well.

“C’mon, let’s go in. After several centuries, it’s time to see mother and father again!” Jian Chen said softly before vanishing while holding Shangguan Mu’er’s hand.

At this moment, in an idyllic garden within the heavily-guarded Changyang clan, the white-clothed Bi Yuntian sat in a pavilion, focusing on her painting. A few maid servants that were rather powerful stood with their backs towards the pavilion, waiting outside quietly, ready to respond to any orders at any time.

The person that Bi Yuntian was painting on the canvas was Jian Chen!

A good while later, the painting was finally complete. Bi Yuntian slowly set down the brush in her hand and picked up the painting from the table, studying it closely. In the end, she let out a satisfied smile.

“Mother, it’s been many years since we last saw each other. I didn’t expect you to pick up painting, and you’ve painted extremely well. The portrait is vivid, basically no different from the actual person.”

At this moment, an extremely familiar voice suddenly rang out from beside her.

Bi Yuntian was surprised by the voice, but her gaze remained fixed on the portrait. She shook her head in a self-deprecating manner. “I’m actually hallucinating again. Xiang’er said he’ll only return after ten thousand years. It’s only been a few centuries since he’s left.”

“Sigh, ten thousand years. I don’t even know if I can live until then.” Bi Yuntian immediately became dejected as if she had thought of something.

On the Tian Yuan Continent, only Saint Emperors possessed a lifespan of ten thousand years, while she was only a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master right now, which was equivalent to Saint Ruler for fighters. It was impossible for her to live for ten thousand years.

The cultivation environment on the Tian Yuan Continent had changed. Many people could now reach Saint Emperor. As a matter of fact, it was even possible for them to forcefully produce a Saint Emperor through a tremendous amount of resources alone, but that was only limited to fighters.

Bi Yuntian was a Radiant Saint Maser, not a fighter, so these methods did not work on her.

As a result, after several centuries, many puny fighters from back then had all become Saint Kings and Saint Emperors, while she remained as a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master.
