True Martial World - chapter-858
The Luo clan’s royal capital covered an extremely extensive area. To the
north of the royal city, there was a snow-covered mountain that was a
hundred thousand feet tall. The mountain’s peak was shrouded by clouds,
and bluish snow capped it. There were vast swaths of snow that filled the
area, making it look like an immortal’s paradise.
And in this vast sea of snow stood numerous jade-carved palaces. Every
palace was augmented by array formations, so even though the exterior
environment was covered in snow, the palace’s internal environment was
maintained at a comfortable temperature all year round, with luxuriant
grass and trees in blooming flowers. It was extremely beautiful.
In the middle of the mountain peak, there was a hot spring that did not
freeze regardless of the season. The hot spring had the name ‘Luo Lucid
Springs’ and its temperature was pleasant. Luo Lucid Springs was
perennially covered in dense water vapor, and the spring water was like
ambrosia from the heavens. It was filled with spiritual energy, so just
drinking a mouthful would allow a mortal to become one year younger. A
kettle of it allowed one to become ten years younger. The marvelous
effects for mortals was no surprise, but even for warriors with
relatively high cultivation levels, Luo Lucid Springs was still able to
provide them with many rare benefits.
Even in the Luo clan royal compound that was filled with spiritual
grounds, the Luo Lucid Springs was still one of the more famous ones.
The entire Luo Lucid Springs was surrounded by a palace with the name
‘Luo Lucid Palace’. And it was the venue where Empress Luo was
hosting her banquet today.
The people invited to the banquet were important figures of the Luo clan.
There was Empress Xuan, Princess Purple Spirit, old subjects of the Luo
clan’s royal court, outstanding figures in the royal capital as well as
those young elites who performed well at the collective training and who
were expected to stand out at the Luo Divine Hall trials!
The standards for choosing these young elites were extremely high. There
were certain states which did not have a single person chosen. For
example, Yi Yun was the only person picked from the Fire Cloud State.
The young elites who were chosen were extremely excited. The banquet
could be one of the most important opportunities in their lives. If they
were lucky, they might gain the recognition of the upper echelons of the
Luo clan, and enjoy a meteoric rise.
It was still two hours before the banquet began. With the invitation in
hand, Yi Yun came to Luo Lucid Palace and he happened to meet Luo Tian,
who also had an invitation.

Luo Tian from the Phoenix Firmiana State had been chosen to attend the
banquet, but his seat was located at one of the big tables situated
outside Luo Lucid Palace. He was just there to make up the numbers.
Sitting there gave him zero chance of being appreciated. He would not
even get to see Empress Luo, while all the truly important people were
After Luo Tian saw Yi Yun, he gave him an awkward smile. Ever since Yi
Yun broke through to the Heaven Ascension realm and obtained a
ninety-nine deca-feet Dao Tree, Luo Tian no longer had the mind to
compete with Yi Yun. He acknowledged his own inferiority against Yi Yun.
Yi Yun gave him a gentle nod before walking into the palace. Upon seeing
this scene, Luo Tian felt extremely envious. He also desired to enter the
inner palace, but he was ineligible to do so.
The inner palace was filled with top figures. It was even rumored that
Princess Purple Spirit would come today. If one entered the inner palace,
one could catch a sight of Princess Purple Spirit’s beauty.
Princess Purple Spirit was considered the most dazzling pearl in all of
the Luo clan’s royal capital. No heiress from the large families or the
female elites from the various states could compete with Princess Purple
Spirit. She was on a completely different level.
Ignoring her looks and family background, just her talent alone that was
derived from the richness of her Ancient Fey bloodline was shocking. It
was rumored that Princess Purple Spirit had inherited an Ancient Fey’s
bloodline as though she was a reincarnation of one. At the age of ten,
she had awakened her Ancient Fey bloodline, and she had even greatly
surpassed Prince Crimson Firmament!
It was also because of Princess Purple Spirit that Emperor Luo
deliberated over the heir to the throne. If not, with the Luo clan’s
tradition of preference towards age, the forces that Prince Crimson
Firmament controlled and the support he received that far exceeded
Princess Purple Spirit’s would have easily ensured that he would ascend
to the throne.
Despite Luo Tian knowing that his talent and status made it impossible
for his life to have any intersection with Princess Purple Spirit, he
would have been extremely satisfied just meeting her once.

Unfortunately… the statuses they enjoyed were realms apart. They were
people from two different worlds.
Obviously, Yi Yun did not know what Luo Tian was thinking. In fact, even
if Luo Tian had said it out loud, Yi Yun would find it difficult to
imagine that the problematic girl that he met at the Tai Ah Divine City
had an identity that was so far beyond one’s reach.
The moment he stepped into the inner hall of the Luo Lucid Palace, the
atmosphere changed suddenly. Taking a few steps forward, Yi Yun noticed
the Luo Lucid Springs situated in the middle of the inner hall.
The Luo Lucid Springs was billowing with spring water, and above the
pool, a pavilion carved in jade had been constructed. And on this
pavilion, there were girls dressed in white who were dancing.
These girls were specially handpicked from the best in the world. They
had Heaven Fey bloodlines, and their looks and figures were impeccable.
To be able to dance at the Luo Lucid Springs was also not a chance that
any ordinary girl would receive.
At this moment, there were already quite a few people gathered by the
sides of the Luo Lucid Springs. At a glance, there was no lack of young
elites, but few elderly important figures had come.
Yi Yun did not know anyone, so he found a random seat, sat down and
slowly began drinking tea.
Although Yi Yun looked aloof, everything that happened around him was
within his perception.
He realized that not far from the Luo Lucid Springs, there was a small
teleportation array. It was surprising that it was built right inside Luo
And at this moment, the teleportation array suddenly lit up!
Immediately, everyone in the grand hall looked at the teleportation
array. It had to be said that the Luo Lucid Palace was situated on the
hundred-thousand-feet tall Luo Lucid Mountain. The journey from the foot
of the mountain to its peak spanned a distance of dozens of miles. Other
than members of the royal family, no one was permitted to fly in Luo
Lucid Mountain. They could only walk up, so although warriors could
traverse distances quickly, under the limitations of brisk walking, the
journey up the mountain still took a considerable amount of time.
Although there was a teleportation array built in the Luo Lucid Palace,
only people of certain stature could use it to enter the palace directly.
“Someone impressive is coming. I wonder who it is… ”
People began discussing as the teleportation array flashed, and soon, two
people appeared side by side in the teleportation array.
The person on the left was simply dressed in azure-color clothes. He
looked like a mortal scholar, and no energy fluctuations could be felt
from his body.
And the other person stood in stark contrast from the scholar. He was
covered in silk clothes and jade. The fabric in his clothes was woven
from priceless Rainbow Silk produced by Rainbow Celestial Silkworms. The
pair of boots he wore were made of leather from top-grade Fey beasts. And
just the cost of his clothes and boots added up was impossible to be
bought without a few thousand World Stones. Many of the elites present
may have been invited to the Luo Lucid Palace’s banquet, but they were
not necessarily as rich. Just the man’s garb alone was worth more than
the entire fortunes of a number of people.
The appearance of the duo immediately attracted the attention of all the
The duo, be it the silk-clothed youth or the azure-clothed scholar,
exuded a natural air of nobleness. The heritage of ancient family clans
in the Luo clan was manifested from their bearing.
“Donglin Yu! Ran Xueyi! Two of the four great young masters of the Luo
clan royal capital!” Someone in the crowd identified them.
In the entire Luo clan royal capital, the people worthy enough to be
given the title of one of the four great young masters were definitely
the most outstanding figures amongst outstanding figures!
Donglin Yu came from the Donglin family clan, while Ran Xueyi came from
the Xushui Ran clan. They were large family clans that ranked in the top
ten family clans of the Luo clan.
The fiefs of these two family clans alone were about ten times the size
of the Fire Cloud State!
The two family clans’ ancestors had previously fought alongside the
founding emperor of the Luo clan. They had achieved illustrious military
merits, so after the Luo clan was established, they were each bestowed
the titles of king and their lineage had persisted to present day. They
were as ancient as the Luo clan’s royal family.
Furthermore, be it the Donglin clan or the Xushui Ran clan, every
generation would nurture large numbers of talents. Some would be given
important positions in the royal capital, while others would be assigned
to one of the 196 states to become an official of a state.
As for Donglin Yu and Ran Xueyi, they were considered to be two of the
most outstanding juniors from the two family clans. For such large family
clans, the juniors they paid the most attention to would be nurtured in
their own family clans. If Ran Xueyi was compared to Ran Yu, the
differences in their positions were like Heaven and Earth. There was no
way to compare them.
“Brother Ran, please.”

The scholarly-looking azure-clothed man stretched out his hand. He was
“Brother Donglin, please.” The silk-clothed youth said in response.
Ran Xueyi’s outfit was extravagant, but he did not give off an arrogant
demeanor. Every action and word from him felt like a gentle spring
breeze, he truly deserved his title as one of the four great young
At this moment, a burly man with a livid face and large fangs walked up
and led the silk-clothed youth to his seat.
Seeing the burly man, everyone shuddered in their hearts.
The Fey Demon race in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven was a mixed
hybrid between Fey and Demon. They were few in number, but they had long
lifespans. Their bodily strength was extremely terrifying and they were
If a Fey Demon was trained into a loyal soldier, he would be the most
valuable protective force of a family clan. This Fey Demon was one
nurtured by the Xushui Ran clan, and he was a follower of Ran Xueyi.
It was also obvious what sort of status that Ran Xueyi had for him to be
able to bring a follower to attend the banquet.

Ran Xueyi sat at one of the seats of honor, which was not located too far
from Yi Yun. At this moment, the Fey Demon whispered into Ran Xueyi’s
ear. Ran Xueyi was chatting with Donglin Yu, but after hearing the Fey
Demon’s words, he stopped and he turned his head slightly as his gaze
landed on Yi Yun.
The teacup in Yi Yun’s hand faltered for a moment before he continued
sipping his tea slowly.
Just from the name, Yi Yun knew the person’s identity as well.
“Brother Ran, I heard something happened recently to your Xushui Ran
clan. It appears as though one of your direct descendant’s bloodline
had been crippled.”
The Fey Demon’s whispers were not hidden from Donglin Yu, so Donglin Yu
knew that the person that Ran Xueyi was looking at was Yi Yun.
A young disciple from the Fire Cloud State, even if he had obtained first
in the collective training, was not someone that Donglin Yu would care
too much for. If this was any other time, he would not have even given a
However, this Fire Cloud State disciple had smacked the Xushui Ran clan
in the face. It was a taboo for the bloodline of someone from an Ancient
Fey family clan like the Xushui Ran clan to be crippled. The news of this
small incident had proliferated.
Therefore, Donglin Yu had paid a bit of attention to Yi Yun, who dared to
provoke the almighty family clan.

Such a person was usually rash and petulant. He might not understand how
terrifying an ancient family clan was, and he had engaged in his reckless
behavior because of his bit of talent. He was doomed to suffer sooner or
“I have incurred ridicule on myself, Brother Donglin. It had indeed
happened. The disciple that had been crippled was one of the disciples
that my Xushui Ran clan had assigned outside the family. The four Elders
of my Xushui Ran clan have instructed me to simply teach him a lesson
within the rules.” Ran Xueyi said in a nonchalant manner.
He did not deliberately do so with a voice transmission. It made many
people around him hear it.
They were secretly horrified at how Ran Xueyi truly disparaged Yi Yun. He
had said such those words so casually, and it was unknown how far the
so-called ’lesson’ would go.
