Qin Yu bitterly smiled. Was this fate? Was he destined to be involved in this, unable to avoid it?
Lei Xiaoyu’s smiling face appeared in his mind. Right now she spent every day in incomparable bliss. She loved it most when Qin Yu temporarily stopped cultivating, because then she would bring him to the kitchen and make him all sorts of delicious foods.
But she had no idea that her life was approaching its end…even with the blue cloud lotus root extending her life, she only had around ten years or so. With every day that passed, she drew closer and closer to her last.

In the distant imperial capital, the aura of the heavens and earth gathered together. In one’s senses it was like nine dragons rising into the heavens, looking down upon the billions and billions of people with disdain.
