2231 Palace Guardian’s legendary fiend!
Xiao Ran was dazed. “Red-gold heavenly phoenix? I’ve never seen it before. Why are you asking this?”
Disappointment flashed across Chu Liuyue’s eyes. “It’s nothing. I’m just curious.”
Ever since she saw Jin Yunlai holding the feather of the red-gold heavenly phoenix at the Heaven Gate, she felt that the red-gold heavenly phoenix race should have some connection with Fantasy Divine Palace.
After discovering that Yi Zhao was trapped in the depths of the lightning pool, she confirmed her guess.
Xiao Ran was considered an old man in Fantasy Divine Palace. He had stayed here long enough and seemed to know a little about many things.
Chu Liuyue wanted to come here and ask if she could find any clues, but it seemed that this path wouldn’t work.
Xiao Ran stared at her, and his expression became serious. “In the future, it’s better if you don’t mention red-gold heavenly phoenixes in Fantasy Divine Palace.”
Chu Liuyue frowned. “Why is that?”
“Because the red-gold heavenly phoenix race is guilty.” Xiao Ran raised his chin and looked at the Fantasy Divine Hall standing far away. “Tens of thousands of years ago, the ancestor of the red-gold heavenly phoenix was a legendary fiend that protected Fantasy Divine Palace. He had a respected status and was greatly favored, but for some reason, he later rebelled and fled. Almost half of the Fantasy Divine Hall was burned down! It was also that time that Fantasy Divine Hall suffered heavy losses. Several deities died together, and the entire Fantasy Divine Palace was in turmoil.”
“It took about 10,000 years for Fantasy Divine Hall to be repaired and a new deity to be chosen before all the waves gradually subsided. But from then on, the red-gold heavenly phoenix race became a sinful race. The people of Fantasy Divine Palace also have an unspoken mutual understanding and don’t mention these things again.”
He looked at Chu Liuyue. “It’s fine if you ask me about what I said today, but if anyone hears it, I’m afraid it’ll cause some trouble.”
Chu Liuyue was stunned for a long time after hearing this. “…So there’s such a history?”
Xiao Ran nodded his head. “That’s right. Because of that, although the red-gold heavenly phoenixes are one of the two ancient legendary fiend races, they’re still very unpopular here. Don’t mention it again in the future.”
Chu Liuyue closed her eyes, and the corner of her lips twitched. Don’t mention it? I have a contract with Tuan Zi and plan to save Yi Zhao. I can’t avoid this trouble no matter what.
Seeing her strange expression, Xiao Ran couldn’t help but ask, “What’s wrong?”
Chu Liuyue shook her head. “It’s nothing; I’m just a little surprised by these things… Thank you for your reminder, Senior Xiao Ran. I’ll go back first.”
Seeing that her mood seemed to be a little off, Xiao Ran didn’t keep her.
Chu Liuyue turned around and left.
On the way back, Chu Liuyue walked very slowly. As she walked, she spoke to Tuan Zi in her heart. “Tuan Zi, do you know what Senior Xiao Ran said just now?”
Tuan Zi looked confused. “I don’t know!”
Chu Liuyue frowned slightly. If this is true, logically speaking, it is impossible for there to be no records of it in the red-gold heavenly phoenix race. As the young mistress, it’s even more impossible for Tuan Zi not to know about it. However, Xiao Ran’s words don’t seem to be fake. He has no reason to lie about such a thing.
Chu Liuyue recalled that she had once spoken to the aura left behind by that ancestor in Godly Phoenix Hall. If everything Xiao Ran said is true, then… That person actually died in Fantasy Divine Hall back then?
In addition, there is Miao Zhen. When he mentioned Fantasy Divine Palace and the red-gold heavenly phoenix race’s ancestor, he also looked like he wanted to say something but hesitated. Could it be… because of this?
Chu Liuyue felt as if she had fallen into a swamp and couldn’t break free no matter what.
Too many mysteries emerged one after another, intertwining with each other, which made it difficult for her to distinguish.
“Could it be that the Ancestral Golden Feather was left behind back then?” she guessed with uncertainty.
If that’s the case, it makes sense. What exactly happened back then? Why did the ancestor of the red-gold heavenly phoenix race betray Fantasy Divine Hall?
Chu Liuyue looked up at the majestic hall. She was more anxious than ever to go in and investigate!
“A’Yue, they said that I’m a sinner. Doesn’t that mean I won’t be able to come out in the future?” Tuan Zi asked softly.
Chu Liuyue lightly heaved a sigh of relief.
Now, she began to rejoice that she hadn’t let Tuan Zi out previously. Otherwise, it might really cause some trouble.
“I’m not sure.” After careful consideration, she shook her head. “Song Qing and the others know that you’re my contracted fiend—this can’t be hidden. I just don’t know what the deities of Fantasy Divine Hall will think about this.”
Tuan Zi looked aggrieved. “I haven’t done anything yet. How is that a crime? Besides, if Grandpa really betrayed Fantasy Divine Hall, there must be something wrong with Fantasy Divine Hall!”
A thought surfaced in Chu Liuyue’s heart. Back in the Red Moon Desert, after that eye captured Tuan Zi, it didn’t punish her with ordinary methods. Instead, it forcefully opened her meridian. It was as if… it couldn’t wait for Tuan Zi to break through.
If the owner of that eye is from Fantasy Divine Hall, his attitude doesn’t seem like he wants to punish the sinners…
“In short, stay put during this period of time. Don’t come out unless there are special circumstances.”
No one knew what had happened back then. It was probably useless to argue about this now.
Tuan Zi scoffed. “Oh. I’ll listen to A’Yue then.”
On the other side, Mu Dongyou returned to Fantasy Divine Hall.
In front of the black jade square, a man was still standing quietly with his hands behind his back.
Mu Dongyou stood a few steps behind him, his hands forming a fist-sized, translucent reddish-gold ball. There seemed to be a crystal-clear liquid inside that was glowing faintly.
“Everything is here.”
The man standing in front raised his wrist, and the red-gold ball instantly flew out of Mu Dongyou’s hand and arrived in front of him.
He flicked his finger, and the ball of light transformed into several streams of light that flew to the white jade pillars around the black jade square.
On it, the scarlet and golden flames burned even more passionately.
Seeing this, the man shook his head. “Although he has opened the seventh meridian, his bloodline power is still a little inferior.”
Mu Dongyou was a little helpless. “But he’s the clan leader, so this is the best solution we can find so far.”
“Forget it. Make do with it first.” The man shook his head and asked, “How’s the situation at the lightning pool recently?”
Mu Dongyou said, “Everything is as usual. It’s just that someone accidentally broke into the forbidden area yesterday.”
The man turned around. “Shangguan Yue?”
Mu Dongyou wasn’t surprised that he knew about this. After all, everyone in Fantasy Divine Palace knew that she had barged into the deepest part of the lightning pool.
“That’s right, but don’t worry. I chased her out in time and warned her not to approach again.”
The man laughed and asked, “How do you know she didn’t do it on purpose?”
Mu Dongyou was stunned.
