Meanwhile, in the Northern Divine Mountain’s Sea of Innocence.
Ye Zichen and his companions didn’t go back to Heavenly G.o.d City. The Lightning Emperor had already abandoned the G.o.d Realm and left with the Demon’s Holy Maiden, seeking refuge with the Nine Li.
The Upheaval Alliance had established its base in Heavenly G.o.d City specifically to put pressure on Xiao Ting and the Lightning Emperor’s Estate.
Now that they’d gone, there was no longer any point in keeping their base in Heavenly G.o.d City. Besides, the alliance’s relations.h.i.+p with G.o.d Emperor Zhou Wu wasn’t quite harmonious. It didn’t help that during this most recent yao-demon invasion of G.o.d race territory, the G.o.d Emperor hadn’t demonstrated anything remotely resembling exemplary leaders.h.i.+p.
Going back to Heavenly G.o.d City was already useless. Ye Zichen was even prepared to move their base somewhere else in the near future.
However, Xuan Ji and Xiao Yumei had gone back to Heavenly G.o.d City, so it’s not their factions’ bases were just empty sh.e.l.ls. They still had plenty of members stationed in the capital.
The current situation was tense; the alliance needed wielders of power and authority to hold down the fort.
With Xiao Yumei and Xuan Ji back at Heavenly G.o.d City, Ye Zichen could relax somewhat. Even if G.o.d Emperor Zhou Wu tried something, the Upheaval Alliance and Profound Pavilion could reinforce each other; they wouldn’t fall so easily.
But of course, there was another, even more important reason he hadn’t gone back to Heavenly G.o.d City with them. That was…
As they left the Nine-tailed Fox Clan’s territory, he finally heard the answer he’s been waiting for. Xue Yang had finally told him.
And it was perfectly in line with his earlier thoughts, as well as the line of text the Outsider’s Master of the Stars had left him.
Everyone hurried back to the Sea of Innocence. When Ye Zichen’s group arrived, the Xue Family elders were already waiting for them outside.
“Alliance Head Ye.” This elder and Ye Zichen had met before. The elder had been loyal to the Xue Family from birth, and Xue Yang trusted him completely. Now, he was the esteemed Third Elder of the Sea of Innocence. He stood in the sky, clad in blue, his sleeves fluttering lightly in the wind. Even from a distance, he seemed like an immortal.
When he saw Ye Zichen’s group rus.h.i.+ng over, the elder came up to greet them. When Ye Zichen saw him, he understood. He nodded as a show of respect, and the Third Elder turned and gestured for him to follow. “The Ocean Emperor is already waiting in the meeting hall.”
“I’ll have to trouble you to lead the way, then.” Ye Zichen, Yang Jian, and the others followed the elder through the Xue Family’s outer sect.
When they reached the meeting hall’s front door, the elder came to an abrupt stop and cupped his fists in farewell. “The Ocean Emperor is inside. Before you arrived, he ordered me to lead you here. My mission is now complete, so I shan’t accompany you any longer.”
Ye Zichen nodded and saw the elder off, then led his friends into the meeting hall. Xue Yang’s avatar was seated at its center.
“You’re here. I figured, given the distance, that you’d arrive around now. It seems I was right.” Xue Yang’s avatar laughed and gestured for them to sit at the table. There was already tea there waiting for them.
The Ocean Emperor here was still Xue Yang’s avatar; his real body remained at the River Styx.
He’d made an agreement with Emperor Hades: he would protect the River Styx for twenty years. It didn’t matter that the former Emperor Hades had abdicated his position to Su Yiyun; a promise was a promise. Until he completed it, Xue Yang wouldn’t leave the River Styx.
The tea had a delicate fragrance, and it was still piping hot. The refres.h.i.+ng smell stirred their senses, and they couldn’t help
