There were four more days until the Deepstar Battle came to an end. On this day, the spectator seats were nearly filled, with all kinds of discussions everywhere. The place was mainly filled with Earth Branch disciples, as the Deepstar Battle was practically the most important battle for them.
Many people were surprised when they saw Xuanyuan Muxue coming out when there were only four days left. She was currently in second place, but she received the most respect of anyone on the battlefield.
“She’s really powerful, obtaining all the points by herself.”
The disciples were all looking at Xuanyuan Muxue with admiration. But she just quietly walked to the Heaven Cauldron. She waited briefly before a white-clothed youth walked out with bloodshot eyes.
“Big Brother Yuheng,” Xuanyuan Muxue smiled.
“How many points do you have now?”
“One thousand seven hundred and twenty. I’m in second place, three hundred points away from Xingque.” Xuanyuan Muxue tightened her cloak around her.
“They have so many people, and only so few points? What an embarrassment.” Xuanyuan Yuheng walked over to Xuanyuan Muxue. He looked at the snowy mountain ahead and asked, “The final battle begins tomorrow. Are you confident?”
“It should be fine. I’m already prepared for it,” said Xuanyuan Muxue.
“That’s great then. The Deepstar Pool is pretty good, so don’t miss this opportunity,” said Xuanyuan Yuheng.
“Big Brother Yuheng, I’d like to discuss Li Tianming’s matter with you before the final battle,” said Xuanyuan Muxue.
“Can I be ruthless if I run into him? I can break through the Astral Formation,” said Xuanyuan Muxue.
“No,” Xuanyuan Yuheng said with dark eyes.
“The house king personally warned me to forget Li Tianming and concentrate on preparing for the battle,” said Xuanyuan Yuheng.
“Are you afraid of the eminent?”
“No. It’s the relationship between the Tribulation Peak, Sterling House of Fang, Archaic House of Xuanyuan, and Draconis House of Jian. The eminent belongs to our Archaic House of Xuanyuan, and Tribulation Peak has a lot of authority. But who knows if Sterling House of Fang is giving their best? So the house king intends to use Li Tianming to test the Sterling House of Fang’s attitude, and it just so happens that he has a tense relationship with Fang Xingque,” said Xuanyuan Yuheng.
“So you’re saying to let this chess piece mess up everything and see their reaction?” Xuanyuan Muxue asked.
“That’s right. Tianming is nothing, but he carries the authority of Her Eminence. Anyone that tries touching him will be challenging Her Eminence’s authority. So don’t do it yourself, let the Sterling House of Fang do it.”
“Then did my elder brother die for nothing?”
“For the time being,” replied Xuanyuan Yuheng.
“Are you uncomfortable in your heart?”
“I’m not. I don’t actually hate him. I just feel that it’s stupid going against someone that belongs to the eminent. But when I think about my elder brother, I feel that I should do something about it,” said Xuanyuan Muxue.
“Look at how the Tribulation Peak’s tribulation elders respond. The three sect masters were chosen by them, and even Fang Taiqing fears them. The house king is afraid of this clan of cowards. They surrendered when the eight divine realms applied pressure, and they also capitulated before the Yinyang Demon Sect,” said Xuanyuan Yuheng.
“Yeah, it’s best to unify everything since we’re facing trouble now. Everyone knows about it, but no one knows what the Heaven Branch’s sect master is thinking,” replied Xuanyuan Muxue.
“A human’s heart is unfathomable. But anyone who dares to go against god will die a terrible death,” Xuanyuan Yuheng said with bloodshot eyes.
“I heard the eight divine realms will try to do something during the Number One Summit. You must be under great pressure, right?”
“I’m still managing it well. I’m not old, and that battlefield is mainly under the control of those from twenty-six to thirty years old,” said Xuanyuan Yuheng.
“If only Big Brother Yuheng was born a few years earlier. If that was the case, you could support the entire Heaven Branch by now. Our side is too weak to face the eight divine realms now.”
“That’s obvious. You’re only seventeen, and you’ll be better than me if you have another ten years,” said Xuanyuan Yuheng.
“No matter what, whoever wants to touch Her Eminence will have to go through me. I’ll exterminate their entire clan!” Xuanyuan Yuheng said with his eyes narrowed into slits.
“Big Brother Yuheng, is it good for you to be a blind believer?”
“What’s wrong with it? Do you know what a god is?” Xuanyuan Yuheng asked.
“I don’t know.”
“Sovereign of the world. They represent invincibility!”
“Then have you set down the unhappiness in your heart?” Xuanyuan Muxue asked.
“No.” Xuanyuan Yuheng lowered his head with hatred. “I also want to have the eminent’s authority.”
“Then bear with it for now,” Xuanyuan Muxue said.
“Muxue.” Xuanyuan Yuheng suddenly raised his head to look at her. “Put down your hatred and befriend Tianming.”
“It’s easier to kill a friend.”
“And what happens after that?”
“Wait for an opportunity, one where he no longer has the eminent’s authority.”
The Deepstar Battle’s finale was about to arrive. On this day, the spectator seats were filled, and elders and tribulation elders were around as well. They were there to accept disciples based on their performances. After all, anyone who could enter the Deepstar Battlefield was an elite, and none of them exceeded the age of twenty!
Sourceglow Hall’s palace lord, Gou Yuqiu, and Ouyang Jianwang were in a chamber. One of them was serious, while the other looked drunk.
“What do you think of Li Tianming?” Gou Yuqiu asked.
“Which aspect are you talking about? His temperament? Talent? Or future?” Ouyang Jianwang asked.
“All of it.”
“They’re all the best, especially his temperament. The only downside to him is his cultivation,” said Ouyang Jianwang.
“All of it seems to be similar to Her Eminence. Her Eminence’s cultivation is also low right now, and she needs time,” said Gou Yuqiu.
“We’re in a passive position right now, with internal and external troubles. There’s still an assassin that we’ve yet to find so far,” said Ouyang Jianwang.
“The external troubles are clear. What’s troublesome is the internal troubles. The Draconis House of Jian controls quite a bit of military power, and we can’t have anything go wrong with them,” said Gou Yuqiu.
“Fang Taiqing participated in the last few conferences, and he even spoke nicely. But when the time comes, they’re also an uncertain factor,” said Ouyang Jianwang.
“Let’s just observe. There are so many people on the Tribulation Peak, and everyone is there to defend the Archaion Divine Realm. Since Fang Taiqing can be chosen, that also means he can be removed. The sect master of the Heaven Branch’s position isn’t hereditary,” said Gou Yuqiu.
“They also have quite a few people in Tribulation Peak.”
“Just bear with it for now. Drag it out, and it’ll be better for the eminent.”
“What’s the eminent’s current cultivation right now?”
“I heard she’s a sky saint now.”
“Soon enough. It’ll only take a few more years for her to return to godhood.”
“But who can hold up the Archaion Divine Realm for those few years?” The two exchanged a glance and shook their heads.
“Speaking of which, why should outsiders like us worry so much?” Ouyang Jianwang laughed.
“Don’t lie to yourself. The Archaion Divine Realm is our home, and even if the sect is chaotic, it’s still our home. If we can’t even protect it, then how are we any different from animals?” Gou Yuqiu said.
“What are you talking about? Furthermore, the Yinyang Demon Sect hates the Sterling House of Fang. So it won’t be easy for them to surrender if anything happens. The Yinyang Demon Sect will definitely destroy their phoenix clan if there’s an opportunity,” Ouyang Jianwang smiled.
“It’s time. Let’s just watch the Deepstar Battle for now,” said Gou Yuqiu.
In the Sterling House of Fang’s secret chamber.
There were many seniors gathered here. There were divine mentors and tribulation elders here. They all had a high position in the Archaion Sect. The crowd below was already in an uproar because the last three days had come. The Deepstar Battlefield was bustling, and not even hundreds of perspectives were enough for everyone.
Fang Taiqing sat on the main seat among the hundreds of masters there. Beside him were others, like Judgment Hall’s palace lord, Fang Shenyu.
“House King, Yuewei is here,” someone came in to report.
“Let her enter.” Not long after, a woman came over to Fang Taiqing. She was slender and had brows like ink paintings, and was wearing an emerald dress. Her highlight was her colored hair. It was gentle and bright, adding a unique charm to her temperament. It was naturally because of the Rainbow Phoenix Bloodline.
“Father.” The lady bowed. Her name was Fang Yuewei.
“How’re the preparations?”
“I’m already doing my best,” said Fang Yuewei.
“We’ll have to rely on you to uphold the honor and dignity of our Sterling House of Fang,” said Fang Taiqing.
“Understood.” Fang Yuewei’s eyelashes trembled.
“You can lose to anyone, but not the Yinyang Demon Sect or the Quadform Oceanic Sect.
“Sit down,” Fang Taiqing said.
“Yes.” Fang Yuewei sat on the chair.
“Have you found Xingque?” Fang Taiqing asked.
“What do you think of your younger brother?”
“Decent, I guess. He’ll be better than me when he’s my age.” Fang Yuewei lowered her head.
“Yeah.” Fang Taiqing nodded. “Yuewei, your temperament is too gentle. How good would it be if you’re a man instead?”
“Dad, I won’t fall behind.” Fang Yuewei lowered her head and gritted her teeth.
“Say that to me again after the Number One Summit.”
“Yes, father.” Fang Yuewei slowly balled her fists in her sleeves.
