Chapter 551 Miserable and Boring
Even if Wulan State and Recchi City disappeared in the world a long time later, the scene in Hero Square on August 23rd would leave its own color in the long river of history.
The colorful light was surging wantonly, and almost covered the whole square. The rainbow that connected heaven and earth bloomed in Li Tianlan’s hands. At this moment, his whole body was shining.
This was a miracle.
It would also become a legend in the future.
Everyone was gaping at the scene in front of them.
The light that covered the rain was incomparably gorgeous, mysterious, and full of fierce majesty.
No one could explain this scene. Because of the unknown, everyone was in awe.
Was it the blessing from heaven? Was it fate? Was it destiny?
The picture full of mystery filled everyone’s heart and shocked everyone.
Wang Tianzong didn’t look at the rainbow in Li Tianlan’s hand.
He slowly turned his body and focused on all directions.
Naturally, he would not believe that these rays of light belonged to blessing.
That kind of light was still sharp in the slight flow. All the lights were sword lights.
The sword light was sharp but did not hurt anyone. It spread across the whole square without making any noise.
This was not something that a human could do at all.
Wang Tianzong was sure that he couldn’t do it himself, and no one could do it either.
Everything in front of him was like the light of a sword itself.
If such a sword was real, what kind of sword would it be?
Wang Tianzong frowned.
The sword light was constantly circling in his sight.
He seemed to have detected a familiar scent, but it was hard to describe it in words.
He glanced at the Snowdance Corps around.
The Snowdance Corps fell into silence.
Everyone was looking at Li Tianlan quietly.
At this moment, there was no one in their eyes, not even these sword lights. From Wang Tianzong’s perspective, the pairs of eyes in the Snowdance Corps were full of madness and determination without any sense.
Wang Tianzong’s heart sank, and he finally kept silent.
At the same time, Wang Tianzong was silent, but Gu Xingyun, who was far away in Zhongzhou State, couldn’t help breaking out in anger.
“How dare he! This is outrageous! What is this? Li Tianlan is the Commander of the Snowdance Corps, the marshal of Zhongzhou State. The Snowdance Corps are an elite army of Zhongzhou State, not a private army of the Li family. Why should he kneel? Why should he kneel? Does he have the right to do that? He is wining people’s support and holding his own army in Eastern Europe. With such a wild ambition, he should be killed!”
In the cold and wide main hall of Kunlun City, Gu Xingyun looked at the TV and roared hysterically. His eyes were scarlet, and he stared at Li Tianlan, as if he wanted to swallow Li Tianlan alive.
“To win people’s support. With the bitch Qin Weibai helping him from the back, he could kneel and stand up. We can’t fight for the Snowdance Corps anymore,” Gu Qianchuan stood beside Gu Xingyun with a pale face and said in a gloomy tone.
He didn’t return to Kunlun City until he fled from Beijiang. After the battle with Li Tianlan, Gu Qianchuan’s injury that had been suppressed was relapsed in Beijiang again. Now, if only focused on his spirit, Gu Qianchuan was even worse than Gu Xingyun.
Gu Xingyun stared at the TV and remained silent.
Li Tianlan’s kneeling was completely out of place. Through the TV, he didn’t know what Li Tianlan had said. But no matter what he said, in other people’s eyes, his kneeling had a kind of intention. But then the colorful light that rose to the sky added a lot of mythological colors to this matter. It was not until this moment that Gu Xingyun finally realized something from Li Tianlan’s every move.
That was Qi Move.
Li Tianlan’s every move, everything, and all the results represented a tremendous and almost irresistible Qi Move.
Gu Xingyun and Gu Qianchuan looked at each other and saw deep helplessness in each other’s eyes.
“Do you still have any strength left?” Gu Qianchuan suddenly asked.
Gu Xingyun froze for a second, then shook his head with a bitter smile. “What’s the point?”
The moment he saw Li Tianlan kneeling down, Gu Xingyun really had the desire to kill him regardless of anything. This kneeling made the Snowdance Corps completely return to him. But after all, no matter how strong the Snowdance Corps were, it now had less than 20,000 people. What made Gu Xingyun the most nervous was the signal brought by Li Tianlan’s kneeling down and the relationship between him and the Dongcheng Clan.
Now, there was specific information that the Dongcheng Clan had completely placed their hopes on Li Tianlan. Even people like Zou Yuanshan, who might be at the top, would assist Li Tianlan with all his heart.
If Zou Yuanshan climbed to the top 20 years later, he could guarantee the prestige of the Giant Group for decades. But if Li Tianlan became the Chosen One, the Dongcheng Clan would become the second Wang family of Beihai. The Dongcheng Clan naturally understood which was more important.
Li Tianlan’s kneeling indicated his attitude towards the Dongcheng Clan, which was undoubtedly what many people in the Giant Group liked. This meant that it would be smoother when he took over the power of Dongcheng Wudi in the future. The Li family that controlled the Giant Group might not be as powerful as the Li family in its heyday. But its power was directly related to Li Tianlan’s.
Right now Li Tianlan had a combat capability at the Invincible Realm.
What if he officially broke through to the Invincible Realm in a few years?
With Li Tianlan’s current potential and combat capability, once he officially entered the Invincible Realm, he didn’t even need to stabilize his realm. Gu Xingyun didn’t dare to say that he was definitely Li Tianlan’s opponent.
Gu Qianchuan asked him if he still had any strength left at this time. Undoubtedly, he wanted Gu Xingyun to kill Tianlan at all costs.
“Even if I have enough strength, can I really sneak into Recchi City to kill him? After all, he is the Marshal of Zhongzhou State,” Gu Xingyun said.
“Why not?” Gu Qianchuan said quietly.
Gu Xingyun raised his head in astonishment.
In his sight, Gu Qianchuan’s pale face was calm.
Gu Xingyun understood it as well.
“Why can’t I kill him?”
Gu Xingyun was now an expert at the Peak of the Invincible Realm.
Even if he was seriously injured, his realm was still there. As long as he had spare energy, he would be able to kill.
As long as Gu Xingyun was willing to pay the price.
The God of War of Zhongzhou State killed the Marshal of Zhongzhou State. Gu Xingyun couldn’t get away with it no matter what happened afterward. Even if he didn’t have to pay with his life, he was bound to have life imprisonment.
But when Li Tianlan died, Kunlun City would have time. Even if Kunlun City didn’t have Gu Xingyun, it still had Gu Qianchuan.
Kunlun City had been rooted in Zhongzhou State for more than 20 years, and the Special Warfare Group had become more and more mature. As long as there were 20 more years, even if the top management of Zhongzhou State was completely neutral, Kunlun City could have the confidence to protect itself in front of a superpower like the Wang family of Beihai.
So in Gu Qianchuan’s sentence, he wanted Gu Xingyun to sacrifice himself.
For Kunlun City.
“It’s a matter of life and death.”
Gu Qianchuan laughed at himself. He had no strength left, and his realm was not enough. Even if he could kill, he would not be a match for Li Tianlan.
Gu Xingyun was silent for a long time before he shook his head and said, “I can’t kill him.”
Gu Qianchuan looked at him and did not speak for a long time.
Li Tianlan looked at the light in his hand quietly.
The others were shocked, angry, admiring, and deep in thought.
But his whole consciousness had been completely occupied by the sword light in front of him.
The sword light, with extremely pure sword intent, wrapped him up.
The light formed by the sword intent and the Sword Energy was completely displayed bit by bit in front of him in a frank way.
It was so strange and yet so familiar, as if he had experienced it before.
Li Tianlan felt the emotion.
It was a light and strong emotion.
It was joy, intimacy, excitement, approval, docility, and dependence.
The sword light in front of him seemed to be alive and kept jumping in Li Tianlan’s hands.
He had a sword in his hand.
Li Tianlan couldn’t see the appearance of the sword, but he could clearly feel that the sword was whispering something in his hand.
“This is the real peerless sword.”
Wang Tianzong’s voice sounded beside him.
The Sword Emperor, who had been inharmonious with the Snowdance Corps, walked up to Li Tianlan, looked at the light in his hands seriously, and said with a little joy in his tone.
“What did you see?” Li Tianlan asked softly.
Wang Tianzong said calmly, “But it’s extremely real.”
He could not see the sword either.
But between void and reality, he could feel the purest sword intent.
The real sword should be like this.
That was how it should be in Martial Arts.
The real sword should have life and soul, which could perfectly bear the Sword Energy of anyone, no matter how powerful it was.
Wang Tianzong said in a calm tone, “It is here, and you don’t need to think about manipulating it. The prosperity of the Sword Energy is equivalent to one at the Peak of the Invincible Realm.”
Li Tianlan’s expression became a bit weird.
Now in all of the Dark World, it was certain that there were only five people at the Peak of the Invincible Realm.
Wang Tianzong, Deity, Lin Fengting, the Master of Samsara Palace, Aresis.
Did he have to add this Virtual Sword now?
If this sword was ranked on the Divine List, wouldn’t it be ranked higher than Gu Xingyun?
Li Tianlan didn’t find it funny, instead, he felt a little cold. “If that’s the case, what kind of sword is this? Who cast it?”
The sword in the void seemed to feel Li Tianlan’s mood.
The sword light in his hand trembled slightly, with a little grievance and dissatisfaction, like a spoiled child.
Li Tianlan was a bit speechless.
Wang Tianzong took a deep breath.
He didn’t know what kind of sword it was either. But he was sure that even if the Coldness of Nine States was successfully integrated with the Human Emperor, its spirituality wouldn’t reach this level.
“Could Your Excellency show yourself?” Wang Tianzong looked at the void seriously and asked.
His tone was respectful.
It was not because he was strong or weak, but because this sword itself was a miracle.
With this sword, there was no weapon in the world that could shake the status of its first divine weapon, regardless of if it was a murderous weapon, Listen to the Sea, or even the Coldness of Nine States.
The sword in the void did not respond, nor did it have any emotions.
Wang Tianzong waited quietly.
With his current strength, it was not impossible for him to try and forcefully control this sword.
For a sword equivalent to the Peak Invincible Realm, what could it do even if it was controlled? It didn’t belong to him. If he really held it in his hand, he couldn’t use it, which was equivalent to carrying a time bomb.
The colorful light shook slightly in Li Tianlan’s hands.
A little bit of sword light wrapped around Wang Tianzong’s body, with a light mood.
That kind of emotion was not hostility, killing intent, or disgust. It was close, but with a touch of complexity and helplessness.
The sound of the sword in the void seemed to be a sigh.
All the emotions slowly disappeared, completely restrained, and vanished into nothingness.
At this moment, it was no longer a life, but a sword, a pure sword.
The sword was in Li Tianlan’s hand. The direction of the long sword was that of the sword’s edge.
Li Tianlan slowly put down his hand.
The colorful light that filled the sky suddenly boiled completely.
The sword body in the void kept rising, got faster and faster, and instantly disappeared into the distant sky.
The seven-colored rays of light slowly dissipated.
The storm did not fall for a while.
There was no sunlight between heaven and earth. It was groggy and pure.
“How was it?” Li Tianlan suddenly asked.
He and Wang Tianzong were enemies, but in the field of sword intent, only Li Tianlan was qualified to compete with Wang Tianzong in swordsmanship. Even if they were enemies, they felt lonely when they were not together.
Wang Tianzong felt something in the direction of the disappearing sword light and stayed silent for a long time.
He thought of the Coldness of Nine States cast by the Wang family of Beihai.
The Coldness of Nine States wasn’t as good as this sword.
It was inferior in the spirituality and the Sword Energy.
Because compared to the one who had left just now, the Coldness of Nine States was only cold in the heart. Its spirituality wasn’t enough, nor was its Sword Energy.
If he became the Chosen One and dominated the Dark World with the Coldness of Nine States, it would not be much worse than the sword when the Coldness of Nine States grew up completely.
The most important thing was that Wang Tianzong only wanted one sword.
He wanted a sword that could bear his sword intent.
If the Coldness of Nine States was capable of doing that, the others were no longer important.
He shook his head and said slowly, “In the end, it’s just an object.”
The constantly converged sword light fell all the way to the west and then landed on Western Hills.
The so-called Western Hills were low hills that surrounded the Hero Square on several sides. Standing on the hill, one could clearly see everything on the Hero Square.
The Master of Samsara Palace, who had been said to be dead, had never appeared on the hillside even on the Date of Death and the Trial Day. She looked at Li Tianlan in the distance and kept silent.
Qin Weibai, who was wearing a gray windbreaker, stood side by side with the Master of Samsara Palace. She looked more and more elegant and magnificent.
Flaming Fire stood behind them, quiet like a statue.
The sword light that constantly returned to nothingness was getting closer and closer.
The sword blade in the void circled around the three of them for a moment and passed Flaming Fire. There seemed to be a slight hesitation, and finally, it became completely quiet.
“It’s too early for you to make a move now.”
The Master of Samsara Palace whispered, “Have you ever thought that it is not necessarily a good thing to make him a legend so soon?”
“What’s not good about it?”
Qin Weibai said with a smile, “This is the best time and occasion.”
The Master of Samsara Palace did not speak for a while.
She was tall and plump, and there was a mask without any expression under the black cloak. She wasn’t ugly, but in front of Qin Weibai, who was like a graceful fairy in a dream, she was so ordinary and almost chubby.
It was a pair of “sisters”.
When the two stood together, everyone’s attention would be attracted by Qin Weibai, and they ignored the Master of Samsara Palace, even if she was an expert at the Peak of the Invincible Realm in the Dark World.
Qin Weibai looked at her silent figure with a faraway look in her eyes. For a moment, she was in a trance.
“You are not willing?” The Master of Samsara Palace suddenly spoke, and her voice sounded a bit low under the mask.
“No, I am not.”
Qin Weibai’s voice cooled down.
It seemed that the Master of Samsara Palace didn’t want to continue this topic. She looked at Li Tianlan in the distance and said blandly, “You want to make him into the supreme God, but it’s too early to do so. His strength is not enough. God is perfect and supreme, without any flaws. Now he is still too weak. Have you ever thought that the more you push him upward, the more he can’t stand any failure? He is like this, and it is the same in the eyes of his subordinates.”
“What does it matter?” Qin Weibai asked in return.
“Don’t you have anything to do with it?”
The Master of Samsara Palace took a deep breath. “Wang Tianzong, Deity, Lin Fengting, and even I, which one of them is not better than him?”
“The chaos in East Island is not over yet, now…”
Qin Weibai suddenly interrupted the Master of Samsara Palace. “It’s over. At least for him, it’s over.
“The next battle has nothing to do with him.”
For a moment, the Master of Samsara Palace was speechless.
Qin Weibai took two steps forward and opened her arms, as if she were embracing the sky.
Her figure was so delicate, so perfect.
“I could have changed a lot of things.”
She said softly, “Of course, I’ve changed a lot of things, but I’m not going to be the savior. I just want my man to take a higher and better path. From the very beginning, even before the final battle of Changdao, in our plan, Tianlan should not be involved in the final battle of Eastern Europe. He did a good job in Eastern Europe. His business is over.”
“But you do know him.”
The Master of Samsara Palace said blandly, “In the final battle, you and I are both here. Tianlan won’t stay out of it.”
She looked at Qin Weibai’s back and said in a voice as sharp as a knife, “You have no way to persuade him. So, how are you going to let him leave the battlefield?”
Qin Weibai’s figure shook violently.
“He could have left!”
Qin Weibai’s voice suddenly sounded a little agitated. “If everything goes well, in a few days, he will leave with Li Huacheng and go back to Zhongzhou State to develop in Tiannan. When he knows the news, everything will be too late.”
“But Jiang Shangyu is missing.”
The Master of Samsara Palace said, “Whether he intended to do so or really disappeared, his disappearance directly led to Li Tianlan being unable to leave Eastern Europe for the time being. His disappearance directly ruined your plan.”
Qin Weibai’s body started to shake slightly.
“So, how are you going to keep him outside the battlefield?”
The Master of Samsara Palace asked more directly, “Do you want to do it? Or do you want me to do it?”
In an instant, Qin Weibai’s face lost all the color of blood and became extremely miserable.
Her voice was light as if she had lost all her soul. “I won’t say sorry for the second time in my life.”
“So?” the Master of Samsara Palace asked.
The silence seemed to have passed for a moment, but it also felt as long as a lifetime.
Qin Weibai’s voice finally sounded. “I’ll do it.”
The Master of Samsara Palace sighed softly, with a complicated feeling.
In the distance, the Snowdance Corps began to leave the square, and there was a tide of people in their sight.
The Master of Samsara Palace hesitated, then walked to Qin Weibai and patted her on the shoulder.
Qin Weibai lowered her head, and no longer looked at Li Tianlan or the Snowdance Corps.
“Have you ever thought about what he would have become without you and me in this world?” the Master of Samsara Palace whispered.
Qin Weibai’s eyes seemed to be in a trance, and she said absent-mindedly, “What can he do? Without you and me, there will be someone else to replace you and me. If he hasn’t met me, he would still enter the Sky Academy. Maybe there will be no final battle of East Island, but he will still quickly rise in the Sky Academy, and then expose his identity…”
She said quietly, and her voice was a little sad. “Then, he may be unable to bear the pressure he can’t bear, enter the Wang family of Beihai, find his own path of the Chosen One, and take the divine weapon that the Wang family of Beihai gave him to sweep away the Dark World. He will meet Phoenix Pavilion, one or two women he loves deeply, and also love him deeply. But he is destined to have a life-and-death choice with them, just like Li Kuangtu. As the old things go on, he will die under his woman’s sword. When the Li family completely disappears, his woman may conceal her name, maybe take his sword to avenge him… That may be an era of women…”
The Master of Samsara Palace listened to her quietly without saying a word.
“The former is pathetic, while the latter is boring.”
In the end, Qin Weibai summed it up.
“It’s boring,” the Master of Samsara Palace said in a calm voice.
“It’s indeed boring.”
Qin Weibai nodded and said, “Let’s go to see Tianlan.”
The body of the Master of Samsara Palace hesitated for a moment.
Qin Weibai looked down at her clothes.
She wore a gray woman’s windbreaker, a white scarf, a white cotton shirt, black straight pants, and high heels.
She had never dressed herself up, but every piece of clothing on her was so eye-catching and dazzling.
Qin Weibai was silent for a moment and said, “Let’s change our clothes and then go.”
The Master of Samsara Palace nodded and said, “Alright, let’s go back to the hotel first.”
“The Moss Hotel has been completely locked down. That is the place where Wulan State arranges President Li Huacheng to live. I have booked a room in a nearby hotel.”
Flaming Fire, who had been silent, suddenly got lively. She took a step forward and said it while looking at Qin Weibai.
The Master of Samsara Palace didn’t say anything.
Qin Weibai nodded and said casually, “Then let’s go there directly.”
Flaming Fire nodded slightly. “The car is at the foot of the mountain.”
The three of them walked down the mountain slowly along the mountain path.
On the way, Flaming Fire wanted to say something but stopped on second thought.
Qin Weibai didn’t notice the state of Flaming Fire. Her steps were light and a little powerless.
The Master of Samsara Palace calmly reached out and grabbed Qin Weibai’s arm.
She looked at Flaming Fire and asked, “What do you want to say?”
Flaming Fire glanced at the Master of Samsara Palace and ignored her.
The Master of Samsara Palace’s eyes narrowed slightly, and then she let out a soft snort.
A black car produced in Eastern Europe was parked at the foot of the mountain.
The three of them got in the car in silence.
Flaming Fire sat in the driver’s seat. She didn’t say a word or make a move.
Finally, Qin Weibai looked at her and said slowly, “What do you want to ask?”
“What kind of clothes do you want to change?”
Flaming Fire hesitated for a moment and finally asked the question directly.
“Changing clothes is changing clothes. Have you prepared a lot of clothes?” Qin Weibai asked a little strangely.
Flaming Fire turned to look at Qin Weibai’s bright and glittering eyes and said stubbornly, “You know what I mean.”
She paused and continued, “I definitely won’t agree.”
Qin Weibai reached out to tidy the hair on Flaming Fire’s forehead. “Don’t think too much about it,” she said softly.
“I didn’t think much about it.”
Flaming Fire said quietly, “I just don’t agree.”
She turned to look at the Master of Samsara Palace with cold eyes and said, “Who do you think you are?!”
The Master of Samsara Palace didn’t say anything.
Flaming Fire sneered, “You don’t deserve it, do you?”
“That’s enough,” Qin Weibai suddenly said, and her sound was quiet and bland.
Flaming Fire’s ice-cold momentum froze for a second, and then she finally fell silent.
“I don’t want to go to the hotel anymore,” Flaming Fire said softly after a long while. Somehow, her eyes were slightly red.
“You have to let Tianlan see you,” Qin Weibai said softly.
She touched Flaming Fire’s head and said, “Let’s drive.”
Flaming Fire kept silent.
From Mormans to Recchi City, they took a specialized flight without a stop.
The reason for all this was so simple.
It didn’t matter whether she missed him or not.
The important thing was to let Li Tianlan see.
To see her…
