Zhou Yuan uttered the name, somewhat bewildered. It was a woman’s name. In other words she should be a senior sister, right?
He shook his head in puzzlement and couldn’t understand why master Cang Yuan did not tell him clearly. But this was just a trivial matter.
“Doesn’t supreme sovereign Cang Yuan have two disciples? Why is there only one person listed in the Founding Members Court?” Zhou Yuan continued to ask.
“Yes. Lady Chi Jing is Lord Cang Yuan’s second disciple. The eldest disciple is Zhuan Zhu, and the seat in the Founding Members Court should have belonged to Lord Zhuan Zhu, but he chose to isolate himself after supreme sovereign Cang Yuan’s disappearance. It was said that he wanted to challenge the Saint stage, but there hasn’t been any news of him all these years. Therefore, according to the rules, Lady Chi Jing replaced his position,” Yi Qiushui explained.
So my eldest senior brother is called Zhuan Zhu. Zhou Yuan nodded, breathing an inward sigh of relief. He finally sorted out the situation of his senior brother and senior sister.
Not only that, from Yi Qiushui’s statement, he was able to estimate the strength of his senior brother and senior sister.
The fact that senior brother Zhuan Zhu could attack the Saint stage was enough to suggest he had made great success in the Law Domain stage and that he should be similar in strength to sect master Qing Yang, or perhaps even a little stronger....
There might be a gap between him and senior sister Chi Jing, but the difference certainly wouldn’t be too much.
Zhou Yuan couldn’t help but gasp at such strength. It should be said that someone with the strength of the Law Domain stage in Cangxuan Heaven could establish a major sect equal to the top forces, such as the Cangxuan Sect and the Sacred Palace.
While thoughts raced through Zhou Yuan’s head, Yi Qiushui gently sighed, “But supreme sovereign Cang Yuan has disappeared for many years, and it has had a huge impact on Tianyuan Region.”
“Oh? What’s the impact?” Zhou Yuan asked.
“Hunyuan Heaven is roughly divided into nine regions, but there are many disputes and conflicts in these nine regions. Over the years, because of the disappearance of supreme sovereign Cang Yuan, coupled with rumours of his death, the bigger regions inevitably tried to create trouble and tried to slash some flesh from Tianyuan Region.
“And these are just external factors. There is even more internal chaos in Tianyuan Region.
“There are serious differences among the five seats of the Founding Members Court. The Heavenly Spirit Sect, the White clan and the Profound Crystal clan have united, and they currently have a powerful voice. They have undoubtedly become the temporary ruler of Tianyuan Region. On the other hand, Lady Chi Jing has united with the Wood clan and is constantly in conflict with them.
“The disputes and conflicts have spread to Tianyuan Heaven’s 900 prefectures. After all, these 900 prefectures are the foundation of Tianyuan Heaven, and it is only when these prefectures are controlled would they have a lot of resources to use. Therefore, to occupy the position of Prefecture Lord, all these years there have been constant conflicts between the two sides. It has made Tianyuan Region increasingly chaotic.”
Yi Qiushui smiled bitterly. “I have to say that without supreme sovereign Cang Yuan, Tianyuan Region would most likely deteriorate. It may even split up and lose its position as one of the nine great regions.”
Zhou Yuan’s face grew solemn. As his master Cang Yuan had predicted, the Tianyuan Region had inevitably changed after his disappearance.
He felt a headache coming on. To obtain the Ancestral Dragon Lamp, he needed to use the strength of Tianyuan Region; otherwise, it would be impossible for him to touch that kind of sacred treasure with his power alone.
Moreover, if he wanted to take advantage of Tianyuan Region’s strength, the two parties must at least have a very strong relationship. If Chi Jing was in power, the cooperation shouldn’t be too difficult, given the fact that they had the relationship of senior sister and junior brother and this was master Cang Yuan’s order.
But it was hard to predict what the Heavenly Spirit Sect, White clan and Profound Crystal clan thought. Zhou Yuan did not dare to cooperate with them.
Of course, the most important thing was that the Ancestral Dragon Lantern was controlled by the nine regions in turn. If Tianyuan Region were to lose its status as one of the nine great regions because of unrest, it would also lose the right to hold the Ancestral Dragon Lantern.
Without the identity of one of the great nine regions, let alone him, it was most likely that even his senior sister Chi Jing couldn’t ask the other eight great regions to give her face. After all, they currently did not have their supreme sovereign with them.
“This really is troublesome...,” Zhou Yuan muttered.
Of course, it was also very simple to resolve this. As long as master Cang Yuan were to show his face, all the turmoil would presumably stop. But it was impossible for master Cang Yuan to appear since the other supreme sovereigns would find him and make him hand over Yaoyao.
Zhou Yuan’s eyes flickered. It seemed that no matter what he should first meet with his senior sister Chi Jing to determine each other’s identity.
But...this matter also wasn’t so easy, because master Cang Yuan had told him to not let the outside world know about his identity as his third disciple since it would draw the attention of the other supreme sovereigns if such a fact were to be exposed.
He couldn’t reveal his identity to the outside world, so how could he meet Chi Jing?
She was one of the high and mighty figures of Tianyuan Region. How could he, a little Divine Dwelling expert, have the qualification to meet with her...?
“Brother Zhou Yuan, what are your plans?” Yi Qiushui asked.
Zhou Yuan smiled bitterly, shaking his head. “I don’t really have anything in mind.”
“Since you have helped me this time, the Qiu clan will certainly see you as a thorn in their eyes. In these few days, I don’t recommend that you go out alone,” Yi Qiushui advised.
If it was before, Yi Qiushui might not have been too persistent to keep Zhou Yuan, but he had saved them and had shown astonishing strength, so she naturally didn’t want Zhou Yuan to risk his life and leave.
Zhou Yuan pondered for a moment, but he didn’t reject Yi Qiushui’s good intentions. Although he had regained his strength, he also understood that the Qiu clan had experts of the Heavenly Sun stage. Since he had killed Qiu Yang and ruined the Qiu clan’s plan, the Qiu clan had to hate him to the bone. Therefore, it wouldn’t be a wise choice for him to leave the Yi clan.
“You can stay in the Yi clan’s residence for now until my Yi clan calms things down first. If I can take the position of Prefecture Lord, then I can go to Tianyuan Palace to meet Lady Chi Jing. If you want to continue to stay in Tianyuan Region, I can use that opportunity to seek a position for you here,” Yi Qiushui offered with the best of intentions.
Zhou Yuan’s heart leapt. “You can meet...Lady Chi Jing?”
Yi Qiushui gave a faint smile. “Our Yi clan is originally under Lady Chi Jing. This isn’t any secret.”
She wasn’t surprised by Zhou Yuan’s shock. After all, Lady Chi Jing was one of the rulers of Tianyuan Region. She possessed an extraordinary status and was considered an important high and mighty figure in Hunyuan Heaven.
A feeling of joyful surprise surged in Zhou Yuan’s heart. This was really unexpected. He couldn’t believe he would have such a harvest through an accident.
“Then, I have to ask Qiushui to take care of me,” Zhou Yuan laughed.
Yi Qiushui shook her head, saying, “With your talent, as long as you reach the advanced Divine Dwelling stage, you will certainly be ranked on Hunyuan Heaven’s Divine Dwelling List. At that time, even Lady Chi Jing will pay attention to you.
“After all, there are only a few dozen people on that list in the entire Tianyuan Region.”
“The Divine Dwelling List?” Zhou Yuan seemed somewhat interested in this. He wasn’t interested in the list, but he wanted to know the strength of a Divine Dwelling expert in Hunyuan Heaven.
Yi Qiushui nodded with a faint smile. “In Hunyuan Heaven, there is a ranking list at each cultivation level, such as the Divine Dwelling List, Heavenly Sun List and the Nascent Source List.
“Anyone who can be ranked on the list is one of the strongest people of that cultivation level. In other words, they are the true talents with endless potential.
“Of course, almost all the younger generation are on the Divine Dwelling List, while on the Heavenly Sun List and the Nascent Source List are people of the older generation...”
While speaking, a golden scroll flashed out from Yi Qiushui’s hand. She handed it to Zhou Yuan and said, “This is the latest Divine Dwelling List.”
Zhou Yuan curiously unfolded it, and suddenly, golden light overflowed from it, revealing three ancient golden characters.
“Divine Dwelling List.”
Zhou Yuan ran his eyes down the list. A number of impressive names leapt into his eyes.
“First place on the Divine Dwelling List: Zhao Mushen of Wanzu Region.”
“Second place on the Divine Dwelling List: Wu Yao of Wushen Region.”
Zhou Yuan’s gaze stopped on Wu Yao’s name. He wasn’t too surprised about her ranking. From their previous battle it was obvious that Wu Yao was indeed a heaven’s pride.
He shook his head and continued to read.
However, when he saw the name ranked third on the list, he couldn’t help but rub his eyes in disbelief. Emotion surged in his heart like a tide.
This was because of the third column...
“Third place on the Divine Dwelling List: Su Youwei of Zixiao Region.”
