Chapter 53 Inside Wei Yang Palace

The capital was beautiful on the night of Qi Xi. Candles and lamp lights combined with the starlights and the fireworks to brightening up the dark sky. It was hard to distinguish the difference between the light from earth and the brightness of the stars. Everywhere was the sea of light and no darkness could exist in it.

The rivers and streams in the capital were also lit up as well. The merchant ships and tourists ships were filled with lamps and there were countless tiny lamp boats floating down stream. The most famous of the rivers, River Luo, was almost entirely filled by lamp boats and young couples stood on the shores watching the lamp boats they released themselves. They either prayed quietly or clapped happily for the joy of this holiday and tradition. Their young faces and fancy attires were brightened up by the lamp lights.

This was Qi Xi – Chen Chang Sheng stood on the stone bridge and observed the loving young couples. He observed the love and youth that flowed between the river and lamp boats silently. Luo Luo was at first very happy, but became quiet after feeling his silence.

Ivy Festival was delayed for many days until tonight due to the participation of the southern ambassadors. In the previous days, Chen Chang Sheng and Luo Luo were reading and xiuxinging in the Tradition Academy without a care of outside news. What made Chen Chang Sheng a little out of wood was that he still couldn’t successfully enter Purification. On the other hand, Luo Luo’s progress was godspeed under his teaching and mentoring.

It would be hard to build an extra floor on a skyscraper, speak less of flying directly above the clouds. If the people who knew about Luo Luo’s true identity and discovered her progressing speed, they would treat Chen Chang Sheng as a god.

Luo Luo believed that her Master was a god because of not only her growth in strength but also because Xuan Yuan Po’s wound was healing rapidly. Chen Chang Sheng accomplished many things other that were considered impossible. She therefore didn’t lose her respect for him after getting closer to him and knowing him for so long. Instead, she praised him more as time went on.

The lamp boats in the river were floating away like fireflies. The dimming lights shined on Chen Chang Sheng’s face and his expression was undetectable. She looked at the side of his face and suddenly asked, “Master, what kind of Mistress are you trying to find in the future?”

Tonight was the night of Qi Xi. The capital of the entire human world was absorbed in the greatness of love and romance. Countless young men and women entered the strange realm embarrassingly or bravely. Looking at those heated scenes, it was only normal for Luo Luo to think about these questions.

Chen Chang Sheng thought for a moment and answered, “I never thought about these things.”

Luo Luo thought to herself, if he really never thought of these things, then why did he hesitate to answer?

——————————–

Wei Yang Gong was a main building in the royal palace. It was usually used for royal feasts or traditional festivals. The building was treated specially due to its high quality. Tonight the capital was filled with light, and this building was being used as the location of the Ivy Festival. It was decorated to such an extent that people could mistake it for a palace in heaven.

Chen Chang Sheng and Luo Luo arrived at the entrance of the Wei Yang Gong. They took out their invitation letters and had their identification checked. They followed the lead of a servant and headed for the depths of the palace. Even from a far distance, Chen Chang Sheng could see the soft light emitting from a royal palace to the night sky. He recognized it was the light from a Nightly Pearl.

How many Nightly Pearls would be needed to light up the entire palace? Chen Chang Sheng thought silently and was shocked. But there was no expression on his face, just like how the nervousness in his heart didn’t show on his complexion either.

There was no doubt that the Zhou Royal Palace was the center of the entire human world. Even the Li Palace or the southern Mountain Virgin or the Sword Sect of Mountain Li couldn’t compare to this royal palace. If one must find a comparable location, it could only be the Demon Palace in the Xue Lao City.

Walking in the Zhou Palace and feeling every sincere essence flowing out of the rocks and windows, Chen Chang Sheng felt a little nervous. It was different from his daily point of view from the Tradition Academy, and he was just a youngster who wasn’t even fifteen years of age.

On the other hand, Luo Luo wasn’t nervous at all. She was just as generous as usual and her steps were light and causal. She didn’t need the servant’s lead and she would pull on Chen Chang Sheng’s sleeve to tell him where to go and what he should pay attention to.

Chen Chang Sheng noticed this and asked quietly, “You been here often?”

Luo Luo answered, “When I first arrived the capital, I was living here.”

Chen Chang Sheng knew her background was powerful, but he was still surprised after hearing this.

The two climbed up the long stone stairs in front of the Wei Yang Palace.

After they entered the door, the first thing that entered their vision were a massive amount of Nightly Pearls. Although none of them could compare to the one that Luo Luo gifted Chen Chang Sheng, all these Nightly Pearls put together made a staggering view.

Nightly Pearls aren’t oil lamps or candles. Even if the night breezes were strong, the light is still emitted without being disturbed. The light in the palace was soft and bright. Every masterful details of the carvings on the walls and ceilings could be seen perfectly.

Plus, there was not even a trace of wind.

There must be some type of seal in the Wei Yang Palace so that wind couldn’t enter.

There were many seats put up in the palace. Starseeker Academy, Academy of Priests, Heavenly Academy, Academy of Li Palace, and Thirteen Division of Green Light still occupied the best positions. The students who passed the semi-trial were sitting in the scattered seats.

Many people had already arrived, and many more were still coming. There were officers from the Department of Education and officials of the government taking attendance in the front door. Besides their voices, the entire palace was quiet. Once in a while a person would stand up and greet their friends, but most of the people were silent.

“The Tradition Academy is here.”

Following the attendance of the officer, the entire palace fell into a complete silence. But it was shattered a moment later. Countless whispers began to appear and discussion were being made. All eyes glanced towards the entrance of the palace and landed on the young boy and the young girl.

Tradition Academy was the least well known, or you can say almost forgotten, of the entire Six Ivies. In the previous years, the Tradition Academy didn’t even have a seat in the Ivy Festival. But after the first night of this year’s Ivy Festival, this school was remembered by many people and wouldn’t be forgotten this time.

Everyone was looking at Chen Chang Sheng and Luo Luo who were standing at the palace entrance. Their eyes weren’t filled with curiosity or sympathy, but rather caution and suspicion. Many of them were looking at Luo Luo. Those eyes were especially heavy and filled with fear.

After that night, many people were checking the background of the Tradition Academy. They knew about the approximate background of Chen Chang Sheng from the Department of Education, but still no one could find out the identity of Luo Luo. They only know that this young girl appeared in the Heavenly Academy and the Starseeker Academy. The principal of Heavenly Academy, Mao Qiu Yu, knew the background of this young girl. Some people also found out that the guests of Royal Court also appeared with this young girl. The Yu Tian General, Xue Xing Chuan, advised his people in his mansion to be careful around the young girl.

But they couldn’t ask or force these powerful characters to leak any information.

The background of Luo Luo remained mysterious and unknown. But through these big characters people, they could at least know that her background wasn’t ordinary, or else the Tradition Academy and herself wouldn’t be safe after she handicapped that little monster of the Family of Tian Hai while the professor of Heavenly Academy had disappeared.

Of course, the reason that Luo Luo became an interesting character in the capital wasn’t only due her mysterious background and relationship with the royal palace, but because of her strength that was shown on the first night of Ivy Festival. At such a young age, the young girl was already this powerful. Perhaps only Xu You Rong could defeat her, but Xu You Rong was born talented with the bloodline of Sky Phoenix. Who was this genius that popped out of nowhere?

Compared to Luo Luo, Chen Chang Sheng received very little attention. Everyone could see that this youngster still didn’t reach Purification and was just an ordinary person. Although people didn’t understand why Luo Luo respected him so much, they wouldn’t look at him otherwise just because of her respect towards him.

An officer of the Department of Education walked from the side to the front of the palace and announced to the students of Six Ivies and the students who passed the semi trials that the Southern ambassadors will arrive at the capital tonight. They will be staying at the Academy of Li Palace and will accept the blessing from the Pope. After that, they will enter the palace and the event when start a little late.

Hearing this news, the people in the palace weren’t particularly happy. But the weird thing is that the mood in the palace was lifted. It was clear that the young geniuses led by Gou Han Shi in the southern ambassador put a lot of pressure on the prideful youths of the Zhou Dynasty.

But since they needed to wait, they couldn’t just sit around. The attendance continued and the students and staff all stood up and greeted people who they were familiar with. They talked about the interesting things that happened recently and discussed how Gou Han Shi would perform later. All was lively.

The Tradition Academy’s position was still in the corner and undisturbed by anyone. Except in the past the Tradition Academy was actually forgotten by the entire world, but now the entire world was ignoring the Tradition Academy’s existence on purpose. The difference between the two may be small, but it was important.

Of course, this purposeful ignorance was mainly due to the arrival of the southern ambassadors. Many people didn’t want to attract the troubles onto themselves – it seemed like the two powers of the Zhou Dynasty were trying to compete with each other through the Tradition Academy. If it was any other time, there would be tons of people challenging Chen Chang Sheng and Luo Luo – but not now. There will be a more important thing happening in the Wei Yang Palace tonight, it would be more important than the new students of the Tradition Academy and the possible collision of the two powers of the Zhou Dynasty.

The marriage proposal tonight was the single most important thing happening in the human world.

Xu You Rong has the bloodline of Sky Phoenix, which would only appear once in a thousand years. Qiu Shan Jun has the bloodline of Heavenly Dragon, which was unheard of in the world. Plus, Mountain Virgin and Mountain Li were the most powerful sects in the southern hemisphere. If it was actually mentioned, they would be students of the same sect. No matter how you look at it, they were a destined pair blessed by heaven.

The Zhou Dynasty also liked to see the success of this marriage – not because people like to see perfection out of perfection, but rather because Xu You Rong will become the Virgin of Southern Sects. She would be the first girl from the capital in the history to take this position. Qiu Shan Jun would become the Guardian of the Southern Sect. There are two Traditions in the north and south, people’s mind were also divided between the north and south. But the entire human world would be bound closer together due to this marriage, and the war against the demon race would have a better result.

The entire human world would like to see Xu Yong Rong married to Qiu Shan Jun.

Anyone wish against it would be rebelling against the entire world.

 

Editor bing- Seriously… if the Xu You Rong had the blood of the Sky Phoenix and Qiu Shan Jun has the blood of the Heavenly Dragon, then the MC obvs has the blood of the divine god. Like What kinda bloodline requires one to freaking sheeshkabobing amount of energy just to reach the purification stage? Common please… they are geniuses then our MC is god… Well this is just my ranting but seriously I am kinda annoyed by how the two are so respected …

    As of now there’s no romance flag in luo luo towards chang shen. She’s still just a kid who really really respect her master and see him not as a man but a god. Well she’s still adorable so no problem there. Still rooting for luo luo!

      All creatures recognize at some basic level what deserves respect. Luo Luo isn’t devoted to Chen Chang Sheng merely because he saved her and helped solve her problem, but because her beast blood’s strong instincts recognize the scent of divinity.
      The one true Master will arise and her loyalty will not go unrewarded.

        Is this real? Cause after reading chapters 1-130, i figured this would happen, but it”s just that given the pacing of this novel, it may get really long before they get to know the real identities of each other. i mean, it took 80 chapters for him to clarify the identity of Luo Luo. How much more for You Rong? As much as I love this novel, hope it won’t be that long.

        World building and setting the stage for 100-150 chapters is pretty typical for all epic xianxia. Don’t worry this story steadily ramps up.

        Given the Tale of Three Kingdoms starts of with that seemingly endless war against rebel peasants with yellow turbans which once finished has no relevance on the rest of the storyline besides providing background for the characters, I’m not sure if this writing style with massive intros is due to the nature of web publishing and the fact most of these authors write 5-7 chapters per story per week (and so pad their stories to maintain character counts) or if they are trying to emulate classic Chinese story telling.

        Perhaps it’s both.

    Considering the usual divine creatures seem in animes and alike, there is usually dragon, tiger, phoenix and turtle.
    Usually the focus is Tiger and Dragon, while the Phoenix and the Turtle have a support role. Since the dragon and phoenix are already used, considering the protagonist also has the divine blood, one would expect that he would be the Tiger, but considering his speed, I vote in the Turtle XD.

    There’s no proof, but I suspect based of a few paralleles that the mc is following either the back tortoise and becoming xuan wu (if you follow the logic of xuan wu’s sacrifice of stomach and intestines related to cheng’s sickness and dietary restrictions.) Or the three ivy students + tang 36 do match the journey to the west myth pretty close. They even have the goal of the sacred texts as similarities.
