Chapter 1635: Return to the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm
After bading farewell to Jiu Ying, Wu Jun carried the Floating Dreams Pagoda and returned to the sky palaces from the Demon Immortal Realm.
Wu Yu, Full Moon of Nanshan, and Ye Xixi were inside the Floating Dreams Pagoda. Their movements would definitely be mostly restricted to the Floating Dreams Pagoda in the sky palaces. If they were spotted roaming about the sky palaces, the sky palaces’s eternal immortal emperors would again be hunting them down. Wu Jun might also be implicated because of them.
“Let’s return to the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm first!”
Wu Jun carried the three of them inside the pagoda and headed straight for the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm in the sky palaces. Upon reaching, he went to Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen’s residences first, to let Wu Yu meet them.
As for Wu Jun, he went to see the Sky Heart Dragon Emperor. He had to part ways from Wu Yu in order to check on Luo Pin.
Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm!
Wu Yu felt emotional to be back again. It seemed only a short while ago when he first snuck into this place. At that time, he had really exhausted all means just to see Luo Pin.
Also not long ago, he had achieved recognition from Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen to visit this place openly to meet with Luo Pin.
However, he was now back to sneaking in again. Even though he had snuck in, he still could not catch a glimpse of Luo Pin.
This was such as the vicissitudes of life.
After exiting the Floating Dreams Pagoda, he reunited with Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen once again.
The two elders were pleasantly surprised to see Wu Yu.
“I heard that you were at the Demon Immortal Realm. We’re heartened to see you well and much stronger. You seem to be adapting even better than we expected.” Baiyin Dragon King was touched and said to Wu Yu with a beaming smile.
They must have heard about him from Wu Jun. Other than Wu Jun, there was no one else in the sky palaces who knew where Wu Yu was.
Of course, now both Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen knew about him too. The two of them were like Wu Jun. They were people whom Wu Yu trusted whole heartedly. Hence, he had no qualms about telling them his locations. After so many years, they were family to Wu Yu.
Previously, Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen were very worried when Wu Yu was forced to leave the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm. They only felt relieved now after seeing Wu Yu well.
“I heard that you can fight a 9-heavens immortal king already. You are now even stronger than us. You are no doubt the son-in-law that we chose. You have immense talent!” They exclaimed after being relieved of their worry.
Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen had lived exponentially longer than Wu Yu. However, both of them were no longer Wu Yu’s match now.
This made them very emotional.
Baiqin Dragon Queen rolled her eyes at her husband: “What do you mean you chose him? It is our dear Luo Pin who chose him.”
“Yes, yes, yes.” Baiyin Dragon King was now very happy and could not be bothered to argue. Usually, he would be enthusiastically bickering with Baiqin Dragon Queen to prove that he had a good eye for people. Otherwise, how would he fall in love with her… …
Wu Yu was elated to see Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen too. He could tell that the both of them lived relatively well in the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm.
This was expected. Eternal immortal emperors like the Mighty Miracle God and the Four Heavenly Kings, while of high and powerful status, would not be able to poke their noses into the affairs of the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm. The worse that could happen was that the Sky Heart Dragon Emperor would be biased against the Baiyin Dragon King couple. However, such bias could not impact them much too.
It was just a matter of pride.
Baiyin Dragon King used to be a very prideful person. However, all he wanted now was for Wu Yu and Luo Pin to live peacefully. He could no longer be bothered about his pride. After all, Wu Yu was talented and as long as he was alive, it was only a matter of time before he would rise to power. At that time, Baiyin Dragon King could stand as tall and proud as he wanted.
It was a full three days before Wu Jun finally returned from the Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s side. He updated Wu Yu about Luo Pin.
They were now meeting secretly at the Qin Yin Peak in the Primordial Immortal Empire. No one would imagine that Wu Yu, the guy who had stirred trouble at the Great Void Immortal Path and ended up on the hit list of many eternal immortal emperors, would have the courage to return to this place again.
“Luo Pin is now equivalent to being imprisoned at a place called the Saintly Dragon’s Domain. That is a sacred place of the Mystical dragon tribe. Even I cannot enter the domain freely.” Wu Jun’s update caused Wu Yu to frown.
“How’s the defenses for this Saintly Dragon’s Domain? Is it possible to sneak in?” Wu Yu asked.
Wu Jun shook his head: “This Saintly Dragon’s Domain is extremely sacred. It has a long history and is protected by the Primordial Saintly Dragon Tribulation Immortal Design. Putting us aside, even the eternal immortal emperors cannot sneak in.”
“That’s troublesome. Is there truly no other way?” Wu Yu was now getting anxious.
Luo Pin was actually imprisoned in such a strongly defended Saintly Dragon’s Domain and constantly monitored by the Sky Heart Dragon Emperor. It was extremely difficult for him to leave with Luo Pin. In fact, it was impossible.
“There is one way.”
Wu Jun said seriously at this point: “As long as I breakthrough into the eternal immortality realm and become an eternal immortal emperor, then I gain the right to enter the Saintly Dragon’s Domain. At that time, I might be able to smuggle you in.”
“That’s right, only the 9 Great Dragon Emperors and the revered dragons can enter the Saintly Dragon’s Domain. But, breakthrough to the eternal immortality realm is no easy feat. Countless mystical dragons and immortal kings are stuck at this step and can never improve.” Baiyin Dragon King sighed and looked hopeless.
However, Wu Yu was cheered up. He understood what Wu Jun had wanted to express: “Are you saying that you had some minor breakthrough recently and might stand a chance in becoming an eternal immortal emperor?”
“Yes, but I only gained some understanding. I’m not too confident. I can only say that I’ll try.” Wu Jun smiled and nodded.
“That’s great. No matter what, we have to try.” Wu Yu laughed.
This was the last and only way they had to get to Luo Pin. If Wu Jun failed to breakthrough and become an eternal immortal emperor, a revered dragon, then he would have no way of entering the Saintly Dragon’s Domain. Not to even mention bringing Luo Pin out of the Saintly Dragon’s Domain.
At this point, Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen were both shocked.
They knew that Wu Jun was a man of his words. Since he said that he stood a chance in becoming an eternal immortal emperor, then it was truly a possibility. Could it be that Wu Jun had improved greatly from his trip with Wu Yu to the Demon Immortal Realm?
Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen exchanged a look and saw that both of them were pleasantly surprised.
They knew their own strength and how far they were from becoming an eternal immortal emperor.
However, Wu Jun was different. He had been lingering at the edge of becoming an eternal immortal emperor. He had only required some understanding and breakthrough to make the last step and become an eternal immortal emperor. He had a pretty good chance in succeeding.
“Don’t be too hopeful. I can only promise to try. After all, this is the most important step for all the immortals and mystical dragons. Since ancient times, countless immortals perished at this step… …” Wu Jun was being conservative about his chances.
Wu Yu understood what Wu Jun was saying. Anyway, this was the only way they had now so regardless of whether Wu Jun could succeed or not, he had to try.
“You should go and train in seclusion. Don’t worry about me.” Wu Yu said. While it was risky for him to stay in the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm, as long as he hid in the Floating Dreams Pagoda, he would be fine.
Hence, he was not worried about his own safety. Regardless of how long Wu Jun would take, he would wait patiently.
Wu Yu missed Luo Pin deeply. He would do everything he could, no matter how hopeless the situation seemed to be in order to see Luo Pin. Not to mention simply waiting for Wu Jun to breakthrough.
Besides, while waiting, he could try to study and understand the records of epochal immortal designs inside the bronze ball. He could not finish studying them in just one day. In fact, any one epochal immortal design would take up to 10,000 years of study and even then, he might not be able to truly understand them.
He was meant to invest time to study this. Hence, he was not really wasting his time waiting for Wu Jun to breakthrough.
Soon, Wu Jun started to train in seclusion inside the Primordial Immortal Empire.
Baiqin Dragon Queen and Baiyin Dragon King continued living life as per normal. Sometimes, they would converse with Wu Yu at the Qin Yin Peak. However, to prevent any accidents, Wu Yu rarely came out. It was only when they received important news that he came out from the Floating Dreams Pagoda.
And during this time, news of Wu Jun going into seclusion in order to breakthrough to the eternal immortality realm finally spread out.
It had been too long in the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm since a new eternal immortal emperor had been born. Hence, Wu Jun’s news spread like wildfire. All the mystical dragons of the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm started paying attention to them.
The first to visit was the Sky Heart Dragon Emperor.
Because of Luo Pin, the dragon emperor now paid attention to the three other Primordial Immortal Dragons in the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm: Wu Jun, Baiyin Dragon King, and Baiqin Dragon Queen. Hence, news of Wu Jun training in seclusion in order to breakthrough soon reached the Sky Heart Dragon Emperor’s ears.
It was this day that Sky Heart Dragon Emperor, with Sky Will Dragon King, Sky Shadow Dragon Queen, and Sky Chariot Dragon King, arrived at Primordial Immortal Empire.
Since Wu Jun was in seclusion, Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen had to play the host to Sky Heart Dragon Emperor. At this point, Baiyin Dragon King was carrying the Floating Dreams Pagoda where Wu Yu had hid in. Wu Yu observed what was happening outside from within the pagoda.
Even after so many years, Sky Will Dragon King and Sky Shadow Dragon Queen still looked proud. Both of them were smiling strangely.
“Greetings, esteemed Imperial Dragon.”
Both Baiyin Dragon King and Baiqin Dragon Queen naturally had to bow when they saw the Sky Heart Dragon Emperor. The other party was of high status and the Mystical dragon tribe often emphasized on manners.
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor still looked calm and etheral. He was the dragon emperor and could not express his disatisfaction openly at Wu Jun and his family. He came over now simply to ask about the situation in order to make some preparations.
Hence, he asked: “I heard that Wu Jun is training in seclusion now because he has a chance of breaking through and becoming an eternal immortal emperor. How confident is he?”
On this, Wu Jun did not say much before going into seclusion. Baiyin Dragon King could only reply: “We are not too sure too. However, no one can be too confident about breaking through to the eternal immortality realm. All he said was that he will try.”
On one hand, Baiyin Dragon King was not clear about Wu Jun’s current situation. On the other, he could not promise too much. Otherwise, when Wu Jun failed to breakthrough, he would become a laughing stock.
He used to be prideful, but now he did not wish to attract too much attention. After all, he was carrying Wu Yu with him and they would be in deep trouble if discovered.
Sky Heart Dragon Emperor nodded lightly upon hearing his reply: “That’s great. As long as there is a chance, we must try. I hope that our Sky Heart tribe can have one more eternal immortal emperor!”
He was earnest in his statement. If Wu Jun became an eternal immortal emperor, he would benefit as the Sky Heart tribe’s position in the Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm would rise.
However, there was still a hint of regret in his eyes. Wouldn’t it be better if the one to breakthrough was his own children?
