Lord of All Realms - Chapter 1185: Romantic Feelings[Updated at: 2021-01-14 16:03:40]
Finally, Luo Wanxiang left with his subordinates.
After gaining the acknowledgment of the Heaven Span Pavilion, the Void Spirit Society, and the Five Elements Sect, the Blood Spirit Sect was finally taken back by the human world, and could openly travel around the human domains once again.
Master Blood Spirit was so emotional that he felt a strong urge to cry out at the top of his lungs.
At the same time, the incantations Li Langfeng practiced and the fact that he wielded corpse power weren’t mentioned again.
Somewhat confused, Nie Tian walked up to Fan Tianze and asked, “Senior Fan… Why did you help me?”
He had a feeling that if it weren’t for him, the Heaven Span Pavilion wouldn’t have chosen to openly admit to their mistake in their handling of the Blood Spirit Sect at such a moment.
Technically speaking, their misconduct on this matter was a scandal. Since they had already keep it a secret for so many years, why would they reveal it at such a time?
“First of all, the Blood Spirit Sect was treated unjustly,” Fan Tianze said. “However, you’re right. You are the main reason. If it weren’t for you, our sect wouldn’t have brought the truth to light, much less give those realms back to the Blood Spirit Sect and provide compensation.”
Nie Tian nodded. “That’s what confuses me.”
He and He Lianxiong from the Heaven Span Pavilion had never been fond of each other. In fact, there had been multiple conflicts between the two of them.
The only other important member of the Heaven Span Pavilion he knew was Ye Wenhan, who he had met during the upheaval in the Shatter Battlefield. However, he didn’t know him well.
He couldn’t figure out why Fan Tianze from the Heaven Span Pavilion would come all this way here to help him.
“Do you remember that I said that I might ask for your help later?” Fan Tianze asked in a low voice.
“I’m all ears.” Nie Tian picked up his ears.
After a moment of hesitation, Fan Tianze shook his head. “Well… The time isn’t right yet. I’ll give it more thought. And when the time comes, I’ll go find you in your territory or in the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace’s headquarters. I hope you’ll grant me the favor, considering that I helped you frustrate those ‘treasure-seekers’ in the Shatter Battlefield and supported you on this matter regarding the Blood Spirit Sect.”
Many were surprised by his words.
He was a middle God domain expert whose status in the Heaven Span Pavilion was second only to Chu Yuan. With what could he possibly expect Nie Tian’s help?
In their eyes, Fan Tianze had always been a lone wolf. Back in the day, he had even given up the Heaven Span Pavilion’s tremendous cultivation resources, along with the position of sectmaster.
If he had put his heart into his competition against Chu Yuan, he would have probably become the current sectmaster of the Heaven Span Pavilion instead of him.
The man had turned his back on supreme power in one of the four human powerhouses. Why on earth would he need to ask favors from Nie Tian, a rising Son of the Stars?
Everyone found this baffling.
Nie Tian went blank for a moment before saying cheerily, “Alright. Let’s talk more when you come find me.”
“Good. I still have business to tend to. Farewell.” Fan Tianze seemed rather reticent.
With these words, he nodded slightly towards Ji Yuanquan, Chu Rui, and the few other seniors, and flew off on his divine sword without saying a word.
In the blink of an eye, he disappeared into the distant sky.
Wei Lai approached Nie Tian. “Nie Tian...”
He wanted to say something, but gave up on second thought, as if he had scruples since Ji Yuanquan and many others were still there.
Ji Yuanquan smiled and turned to Pei Qiqi. “The sectmaster is rather concerned with your safety. He wants you to return to the sect as soon as possible. If you don’t have other business here, let’s head back. Also, he wants to hear what you’ve gained from the special space created by that Star Behemoth.”
Pei Qiqi turned her head towards Nie Tian. Veiled reluctance could be seen in her chilly, bright eyes.
Most of the Qi warriors here were seasoned experts. Many of them noticed her feelings through her eyes.
“Why don’t you go take care of your business first, Senior Martial Sister?” Nie Tian said, smiling.
Only then did Pei Qiqi nod and say to Ji Yuanquan, “Alright, let’s go.”
With a casual wave of his hand, Ji Yuanquan split open a spatial rift, and those from the Void Spirit Society streamed into it.
Before entering, Pei Qiqi turned her head back to take one last look at Nie Tian.
As this happened, at a certain distance from Nie Tian and the others from the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace, where those from the Five Elements Sect were gathered, Hou Chulan had a complicated expression as she watched this.
Li Xinfen, who was an experienced elder of the wood element sect and a skilled alchemist, took a sideways glance at Hou Chulan and whispered, “You haven’t fallen for Nie Tian as that girl from the Void Spirit Society has, have you?”
Hou Chulan snapped out of her daze and hastily said, “How is that possible? I just have a feeling that she and Nie Tian would be a perfect match.”
Li Xifen sighed. “If I remember correctly, Nie Tian still has a fiancee named Dong Li from the Domain of the Falling Stars. Dong Li, Pei Qiqi, and...”
With these words, she took another deep look at Hou Chulan and shook her head. “That Son of the Stars is a lady-killer. It goes without saying that his potential soars through the heavens. If there are no mishaps, he’s bound to become the next Lord of the Stars. However, he might not be a good match for you.
“Ji Cang, Qu Yi, Chu Yuan... All of these figures that stand at the peak of power eventually come to a point where they’re too consumed with their cultivation to be distracted by the love between man and woman.
“As for the outsider grand monarchs, many of them wouldn’t even leave offspring if it weren’t to pass on their bloodline.
“The great Dao has no room for small love. This applies to humans, outsiders, and Ancientspirits alike. After their cultivation bases or grades reach the peak, they’ll start to change. Family love, romantic love, and love between friends... They’ll grow to lose all of them.
“In the end, all they have left in them will be their eternal pursuit for power.”
With these words, some of Li Xinfen’s memories seemed to be brought to the surface, making her emotional.
Hou Chulan drifted away in thought as she listened to her.
“Romantic love doesn’t usually last,” Li Xifen added. “Things may be better if you can keep up with him, and remain at the same level as him. Otherwise...”
“My cultivation base is higher than his!” Hou Chulan exclaimed softly.
“You’re right, but what about in the future?” Li Xinfen asked.
Hou Chulan took another glance at Nie Tian from afar. “Given my cultivation talent, I may not necessarily fall behind.”
“But what if Pei Qiqi from the Void Spirit Society surpasses you?” Li Xifen put a damper on her aspirations.
Hou Chulan didn’t know what to say. However, the look in her eyes grew stronger and stronger.
Moments later, she approached Nie Tian and bid him farewell.
Nie Tian expressed his gratitude for her and the experts from the Five Elements Sect for coming all the way here to support him. He also learned from her that his grandfather and many members of the Nie Clan had been escorted back to the Realm of Shattered Earth after the crisis in the Domain of the Falling Stars.
Soon, all of those who had traveled here from the Void Spirit Society and the Five Elements Sect left.
Only at this moment did Wei Lai step over and say what he had been waiting to say. “Nie Tian, you defeated Ophelia and stopped the Star Behemoth in the Shatter Battlefield from turning into a devastating Heavenly Corpse. Your incredible performance in these events should translate into contribution points. However, Vice Sectmaster Luo refused to pass our application regarding your contribution points.”
Chu Rui joined the conversation. “The reason he gave was that you sheltered residual evil from the Blood Spirit Sect. But I don’t think there’s a problem now.”
“I agree,” Wei Lai chimed in. “It’s about time you received the contribution points you deserve.”
“How many contribution points are we talking about?” Nie Tian asked curiously.
“About thirteen million.” Even Wei Lai himself seemed slightly shaken as he said these words, not to mention the others.
