Chapter 3237: Entering the World of Moon and Star Again
If they were merely items, then there was nothing wrong with using them, but since they were living creatures, especially when these living creatures had once been followers, it was completely unacceptable to his identity and status as a noble member of the imperial clan. It was a form of disgrace.
Since when did the imperial clan of the past fall so far into disgrace that they needed to rely on the power of their followers to maintain their existence?
Jian Chen left the Tower of Radiance. Only five of the nine protector swords in the Tower of Radiance had been allocated so far, going to Xuan Zhan, Xuan Ming, Donglin Yanxue, Han Xin, and Bai Yu. There were still four remaining without masters.
With Jian Chen’s identity as the master of the Tower of Radiance, it was completely possible for him to nominate people to inherit the four other protector swords as long as he wanted to.
However, he did not do that. In the current Radiant Saint Hall, he was unable to find any suitable choices to inherit the protector swords, so he made the artifact spirit of the Tower of Radiance seal away the remaining protector swords temporarily.
Outside the Tower of Radiance, all the guards stationed there had been allocated elsewhere, such that the hall that the Tower of Radiance stood in became spacious. Only five figures stood there silently in a row.
Apart from Han Xin and Bai Yu, the three others were Xuan Zhan, Xuan Ming, and Donglin Yanxue!
At that instant, the five protectors who possessed the greatest status and strength in the Radiant Saint Hall had all gathered before the Tower of Radiance.
Suddenly, with a flash, Jian Chen emerged from the Tower of Radiance. He was rather dazed and distracted, still recalling the apocalyptic sight that the Martial Soul lineage had faced in the past. The scene was like a curse, embedded deep within his soul, such that he could not dispel it no matter how he tried.
Distracted, Jian Chen actually failed to notice the five protectors. Only when he arrived right before them did he stiffen and notice them.
Jian Chen looked up. Immediately, his gaze landed on the five of them. They all looked at Jian Chen as well. They stared at one another without saying anything, making the atmosphere become rather strange.
Seeing Han Xin, Bai Yu, Donglin Yanxue, and the father-son duo again, Jian Chen’s emotions became rather mixed as well. During his visit to the Tower of Radiance, he learnt about the Martial Soul lineage’s true identity. Now that he had returned, he actually faced them as a member of the imperial clan. The drastic change felt like a dream to him.
“Since you’ve come to the Radiant Saint Hall, why didn’t you contact me?” After quite a while, it was Donglin Yanxue who broke the silent atmosphere. She frowned slightly, and her tone was filled with dissatisfaction. Her large, beautiful eyes that resembled black gemstones were filled with both delight and disappointment.
She was very beautiful, only around twenty years old, at the height of her youth. She possessed an alluring appearance and was dressed in a white dress, giving off a gentle, sacred glow. She seemed otherworldly, with a holy beauty.
Jian Chen gathered his thoughts and smiled faintly. He said gently, “I’ve only just arrived, so I couldn’t contact you. I was planning to visit you one by one once I had dealt with everything.”
At this moment, Xuan Zhan suddenly said, “Jian Chen, you must have learnt from the artifact spirit of the Tower of Radiance already that the Martial Soul lineage is the imperial clan.”
Jian Chen nodded and said nothing.
Xuan Zhan sighed gently. “In the past, only we knew about this secret, and we kept it as a secret. Since you know about it now, how do you plan on dealing with the relationship between the Martial Soul lineage and the Radiant Saint Hall?”
Jian Chen sank into his thoughts silently and did not give an immediate answer. Instead, he only said after some consideration, “I will inform my senior brothers and sisters of the Martial Soul lineage about this. As for how we handle the relationship, that’ll be completely up to my seniors to decide.”
“Jian Chen, I have a suggestion. I don’t think it’s appropriate to make the Martial Soul lineage’s true identity public for now, or the Radiant Saint Hall might end up dissolving,” Xuan Zhan said in suggestion.
“Whether the Radiant Saint Hall dissolves or not is not important to me. Whether we make the Martial Soul lineage’s identity as the imperial clan public is not important to me either, as neither my seniors of the Martial Soul lineage nor I have any desire to control the Radiant Saint Hall. We have no interest in our identities as the imperial clan either. In short, it’s still like what I said. How we deal with the Radiant Saint Hall and the Martial Soul lineage will be for my seniors to decide.”
“If they want the Radiant Saint Hall to remain safe and sound, then the Radiant Saint Hall will obviously remain safe and sound. If they want the Radiant Saint Hall to pay…” Jian Chen paused there, and his gaze became much sharper. “Then the Radiant Saint Hall will definitely pay.”
Xuan Zhan noticed the determination behind Jian Chen’s voice and sighed gently. He said nothing more.
In the end, Jian Chen mentioned his request to enter the World of Moon and Star again. His request was obviously fulfilled. Before long, Xuan Zhan used his identity as the temporary hall master to open the World of Moon and Star again!
At this moment, all the Hallowed Saint Masters on a giant square within the sacred hall had been ushered away. The square was completely sealed off, preventing anyone from entering. Even the lofty vice hall masters were no exception.
Only the five protectors stood on the square. Xuan Zhan personally opened the gate to the World of Moon and Star.
Immediately, the familiar spatial gate appeared mid-air. It was possible to make out parts of the World of Moon and Star through the gate.
“Thank you!” Jian Chen clasped his fist towards them before entering the World of Moon and Star without looking back, vanishing into the gate.
Afterwards, the gate began to close slowly.
But right when the gate was about to close completely, a white, graceful figure turned into a streak of white light and rushed in too.
The figure was Donglin Yanxue!

Xuan Zhan, Xuan Ming, Han Xin, and Bai Yu were all surprised by Donglin Yanxue’s sudden decision, but they said nothing, nor did they stop her.
“Sigh, that girl Yanxue will only find disappointment in the end.” Han Xin let out a sigh as he watched Donglin Yanxue vanish. Afterwards, he looked at Xuan Zhan and Xuan Ming and said earnestly, “Regardless of whether you’re content with what Jian Chen said just then, there’s something I need to tell you.”
“The true reason why we inherited the protector swords is just as we had guessed. It’s all thanks to Jian Chen!”
“However, Jian Chen’s relationship with the Tower of Radiance is even more astounding than we guessed before. The Tower of Radiance has already taken on a master, and it’s Jian Chen.”

“Jian Chen gave special instructions to the artifact spirit of the Tower of Radiance in the past, which is why we had the right to become wielders of the protector swords.”
“We managed to obtain the protector swords not because we had a destiny with the protector swords, but because we had a destiny with Jian Chen.”
