Chapter 2514: I am the Patriarch
“What did you just say? You’re a part of the Tian Yuan clan?” The middle-aged late Godking studied Jian Chen with suspicion.
He was not the only one to do that. Even the other two Godkings did not believe him.
Since he was a member of the Tian Yuan clan, why did he ask such simple questions earlier? It seemed like he had no idea about the Tian Yuan clan and the Pingtian Empire.
“I’ll be leaving first. Farewell!” Jian Chen did not try to explain. He smiled indifferently and grabbed Shangguan Mu’er’s hand before kicking off the monstrous bird gently. Immediately, the Laws of Space pulsed, and the two of them vanished.
“The Laws of Space! Oh no, he has barged into the territory of our empire!” The late Godking’s face sank.
“I’ll go contact the emperor immediately,” one of the mid Godkings exclaimed.
The late Godking shot him a glance when he heard that. “Why would go contact the emperor? There’s no use if you contact the emperor. Go report to the Tian Yuan clan. It’s not like you don’t know that all the experts of the Pingtian Empire are gathered in the Tian Yuan clan.”
The Godking who was scolded smiled brightly and scratched his head. He laughed and said, “Alright, alright. I’ll go contact the Tian Yuan clan.”
Jian Chen and Shangguan Mu’er flew through the skies of the Pingtian Empire, directly making their way towards the Dong’an province.
“The Pingtian Empire really is much more powerful than in the past. Just a fortress at the boundary has three Godkings, and one of them is even a late Godking.”
Jian Chen flew in the face of the whistling wind, which caused his clothes to rustle and his hair to dance. He sighed in amazement.
In the past, the entire divine kingdom only had two Godkings. They were the divine king, who had concealed his cultivation, and the Grand Imperial Protector.
Now, just the Godkings stationed at a fortress numbered three. This would have been completely unimaginable in the past.
“This is all because of the Tian Yuan clan. Everyone now says the Pingtian Empire belongs to the Tian Yuan clan.” Shangguan Mu’er rolled her eyes at Jian Chen as if she was trying to say that he, the patriarch, was just too irresponsible. He was the leader of the clan, yet he did not even know about the situation of his own clan.
“Hmm? There’s a Primordial realm expert looking into this matter.” Suddenly, Jian Chen’s eyes narrowed, and he stared in the direction of Dong’an province. He immediately used a sliver of the power from the Ultimate Way of the Sword to conceal Shangguan Mu’er.
He did not use all of his Ultimate Way of the Sword. Instead, he only enveloped a certain area, turning it into his own domain to avoid the senses of the soul.
Basically as soon as Jian Chen did that, the powerful senses of the soul arrived. It directly swept past Jian Chen and Shangguan Mu’er’s location before travelling even further until it enveloped the entire empire.
“That senses of the soul was roughly around the First Heavenly Layer of Infinite Prime. A Primordial realm expert’s senses of the soul appeared as soon as we passed through the fortress. Surely it’s not looking for us, right?” Jian Chen murmured.
A gleam of light shone through Shangguan Mu’er’s eyes, and after a moment of thought, she said, “That really might be possible. It looks like the Tian Yuan clan you founded before really does cling onto their dignity quite a lot seeing how easily a Primordial realm expert has been alarmed. They won’t allow any offences to happen.”
Jian Chen laughed dryly. He felt like the Tian Yuan clan had truly become an existence that could not be infringed on. He had only barged into the empire, yet he had directly alarmed a Primordial realm expert. Their security was even stricter than some eternal empires.
At this moment, another, an even more powerful senses of the soul swept over, enveloping the entire Pingtian Empire in an instant.
“Seventh Heavenly Layer Infinite Prime!” Jian Chen was secretly surprised. He had Mo Tianyun’s mask, so even the senses of the souls from Grand Primes could not see through him. However, he was unable to keep Shangguan Mu’er disguised, so she was directly revealed before it.
“Infinite Primes very rarely appear on the Cloud Plane. They basically spend all their time cultivating and rarely ever move about. Unless something major has happened, it’s very difficult to alarm them, but two have appeared all of a sudden…” Jian Chen was rather astonished. After all, this happened in the Pingtian Empire. How did a newly-established empire possess so many Primordial realm experts?
Although he had already heard that the Tian Yuan clan now possessed very special status and was no longer weak, he discovered that he had still underestimated them.
At this moment, a figure shot over with lightning speed, arriving before Jian Chen and Shangguan Mu’er in an instant despite only being at the horizon a moment earlier.
He was a middle-aged man. He wore white robes, and his appearance was nothing special. However, he did give off the powerful presence of a Primordial realm expert.
When he saw Jian Chen, he was clearly slightly surprised, as he failed to find Jian Chen with the senses of his soul.
“Who are you, and where do you come from? Why have you infiltrated the Pingtian Empire?” The middle-aged man stared at Jian Chen and Shangguan Mu’er.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
At this moment, figures flickered in the surroundings, and another three people appeared beside the middle-aged man. They were two old men and a gorgeously-dressed young woman that oozed with charm.
The three of them were all First or Second Heavenly Layer Infinite Primes.
“Where did this kid come from? You sure are bold to ignore the rules set down by the Tian Yuan clan. Haven’t your seniors told you that you need to follow all the rules in the Pingtian Empire?” The woman giggled.
“Take them back first and interrogate them. If they hold ill intentions, punish them accordingly. If they’re some descendant of a large clan, get their seniors to come fetch them personally,” an old man said coldly. Afterwards, he clasped his hands towards the Seventh Heavenly Layer Infinite Prime politely and said, “Protector Xue, please return. Just the three of us are enough to deal with this small matter.”
“Alright.” the middle-aged man nodded and was just about to return.
The old man looked at Jian Chen and Shangguan Mu’er and coldly said, “I’ll take them back to the clan.” The old man was a Second Heavenly Layer Infinite Prime. As soon as he said that, he was prepared to take action.
“Before you do anything, don’t you want to ask who we are?” Shangguan Mu’er’s lips perked up into a mysterious smile from under the veil. She pointed at Jian Chen and said, “Old man, do you know who this is?”
“Hmph, I don’t care who you are. If you’re in the territory of the Pingtian Empire, you need to follow the rules even if you’re a young master from a peak clan,” the old man said coldly before directly taking action. He conjured a huge hand that fell down, enveloping Jian Chen and Shangguan Mu’er.
Shangguan Mu’er glanced at the hand of energy indifferently and said steadily, “It looks like you plan on arresting the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan.”
“What? The patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan?” The old man was surprised. He immediately stopped, and the hand froze midair.
“What did you just say?” He stared right at Shangguan Mu’er in surprise as if he was doubting his ears.
“Hmm? Are my ears deceiving me? I think I heard the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan,” the woman said in surprise as she glanced past Shangguan Mu’er and Jian Chen with her limpid eyes. She was in doubt.
“What did you just say?” Even protector Xue, who was about to leave, halted and looked back at Shangguan Mu’er.
“I am the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan, Jian Chen. Do you plan on taking me back to the Tian Yuan clan forcefully?” Jian Chen said at this moment. The mask on his face transformed and revealed his original appearance.
