All of them were too shocked to even listen to Yi Tianyun, as they began to wonder when did Shi Xueyun have the time to conceive the child.
They knew that the Heavenly Jade Sect originally had a term that said the Palace Lord must take a vow of chastity, and so maybe Shi Xueyun and Yi Tianyun hid their true relationship from everyone!
They didn’t know what to say; they knew that the Heavenly Jade was now a part of Heavenly Clouds Mansion, meaning the rules that burdened the people inside the Heavenly Jade and two other sects was abolished, but still, this news was too much!
“Stop with the stares! This is all a misunderstanding!” Yi Tianyun said bitterly as he looked over to everyone on the scene.
“Yi Tianyun, what is going on? I have to explain it to them too!” Shi Xueyun said as she was more confused than shocked!
“It’s a long story! I will talk about it after the situation here has resolved.” Yi Tianyun said as he gathered everyone who saw the misunderstanding in the nearest conference room. Inside, he immediately revealed that the little girl was a phoenix from the Phoenix Clan.
After knowing the fact that the little girl was a phoenix, the people inside were still shocked! Phoenix was rarer than Dragons in this part of the world after all. But it was obvious that the misunderstanding about Yi Tianyun and Shi Xueyun was already resolved!
Yi Tianyun then showed the beautiful feathers behind the little girl’s arm. This was proof that all that he said was true!
“I found her when she was still a little bird, but after I let her eat the Netherworld’s Fire under the Netherworld Palace, she becomes like this! After I got out of that place, she began to call me father!” Yi Tianyun said solemnly.
The people nodded their heads as they began to see where the misunderstanding started.
“Yan’er! You can call me father, but don’t call Shi Xueyun Mother, okay?” Yi Tianyun said with a reprimanding tone. He called the little girl little phoenix until now, but he knew that the phoenix’s name was Yan’er.
“No! She was too cute! I don’t mind if she wants to call me mother, I don’t see any problem with that!” Shi Xueyun said as she held Yan’er dearly.
Yi Tianyun was surprised by Shi Xueyun’s answer. He didn’t know what to say to that, and so he showed an awkward smile. If this continued, people will talk, and it would become a problem, but if this was what Shi Xueyun wanted, Yi Tianyun could only show support!
“So, I’d like to keep Yan’er’s identity as a phoenix hidden for now! I want everyone in this room to keep this information to themselves! If anybody asks, just say that she is my adopted daughter!” Yi Tianyun said solemnly.
Shi Xueyun’s expression suddenly lightened, and she smiled brightly as she was happy for Yan’er. Everyone else also nodded their head knowingly. They knew that if a Phoenix was found here, many greedy people would try to steal her!
After everyone left the conference room, Shi Xueyun was left behind with Yi Tianyun and Yan’er.
“If you want a child, we could have one later, okay!” Yi Tianyun whispered to Shi Xueyun’s ear.
“What are you saying! I will take Yan’er to play now!” Shi Xueyun said as she blushed and walked away from Yi Tianyun with a beaming Yan’er in her hands.
Yi Tianyun smirked as he observed Shi Xueyun walks away with Yan’er. He already knew that both belonged to him! after all, Shi Xueyun was the first woman in his life that could make his heartbeat irregularly!
After he was done with this Divine Nation problem, he promised himself that he would make Shi Xueyun his Dao Companion! After all, they didn’t share the same blood, so there would be no problem with that decision!
After all that, he immediately walked deeper into the palace to meet with the Old Ancestor.
“Come, Spirit King! I’ve already chosen several suitable places to become our new Imperial City! I need to hear what you think about them.” Old Ancestor said as Yi Tianyun walked inside the strategy room.
Yi Tianyun looked over to the point that Old Ancestor has made on the newly acquired Heavenly Clouds Continent, and after thinking for a while, he pointed to the middle of the map.
“I think this place would be good. We will make the Imperial City in the center of the Continent!” Yi Tianyun said confidently.
“I agree, Spirit King. That place has the Spiritual Vein flows under it, we can make use of it to make our own Great Array!” Spirit Race Old Ancestor said excitedly.
“Then, it’s settled! The new Heavenly Clouds Imperial City would be built on that location, and I will leave the process to you as I didn’t really understand what needs to be built there!” Yi Tianyun said confidently, he immediately observed the map one more time, and something else caught his attention.
“Is this the Netherworld passage?” Yi Tianyun asked the Spirit Race Old Ancestor.
“Yes, that is the Netherworld Passage, the Netherworld Continent’s Dangerous Area, but now it was already part of Heavenly Clouds Continent. Would you like to change this place’s name, Spirit King? This place has the same status as the Coiling Dragon Cave from the Heavenly Dragon Empire!” Spirit Race Old Ancestor said casually.
“No, no! I just thought of something else!” Yi Tianyun said as he began to wonder about the two items that he got from Prime Minister Long and Ming Chen.
Netherworld Passage Chart: Details about the Netherworld Passage!
Ghost World Treasure Map: A map containing info about the Ghost World’s Treasure!
These two items were recommended for Void Spirit Stage Cultivator. So, this place must have a valuable treasure in it! “Does this Netherworld Passage lead to the Ghost World?” Yi Tianyun asked the Old Ancestor again.
“As far as the rumor says, yes, but I have never heard anyone coming back after entering the Netherworld Passage. I think this place was more dangerous than the Coiling Dragon Cave.” Spirit Race Old Ancestor said honestly. “Why did you ask about this matter, Spirit King? Did you plan on entering the site?” Spirit Race Old Ancestor asked curiously.
“Yeah, I have that plan on my mind.” Yi Tianyun said as he kept wondering when he should go to the Netherworld Passage.
“Spirit King, I know that your current cultivation was very strong, but please be careful! This Dangerous Zone is full of the unexpected. If you encountered some trouble in there and failed to get out, our empire would be paralyzed!” Spirit Race Old Ancestor said nervously.
“Yeah, that is true, but I have to become stronger fast! I still wouldn’t be able to handle the Divine Nation if they attack now!” Yi Tianyun said solemnly.
