Chapter 2321: The Only Candidate
Now, Donglin Yanxue had already settled down from her original unease. She had become confident that Qing Shan had left since they were not found after so long. She believed she could leave here alive.
“Chang Yang, how long is there until the year ends?” Donglin Yanxue asked gently. During the year of hardship, Jian Chen had remained beside her the entire time. They had truly gone through thick and thin together, causing Donglin Yanxue to hold special feelings for Jian Chen.
As a matter of fact, she began to rely on him ever so slightly.
“It should be soon,” Jian Chen said at ease. He remained unflustered the entire time.
This was just his natural bearing. He had no idea that the presence he gave off would leave a sturdy, reliable impression in Donglin Yanxue’s heart.
And at this moment, the cavern where the two of them hid suddenly shook. The thick earth above them had been blasted apart by a powerful force. Radiant Saint Force shone with dazzling light, dying the gloomy cave white in a single instance.
A white-robed, middle-aged woman hovered in the air, looking down at them.
Even though she stood high up, she showed no arrogance at all. Instead, she clearly became relieved as she gazed down.
“Master!” Donglin Yanxue raised her head instinctively. When she saw the middle-aged woman, she immediately became overjoyed. She called out and tried to stand up.
However, she was still injured, and she had been incapacitated long ago. Not only did she fail to stand up, but she even staggered and almost fell over. Fortunately, Jian Chen had fast arms and caught her in time.
The middle-aged woman was one of the elders in the Radiant Saint Hall as well as Donglin Yanxue’s master, Mu Shui.
With a flash, Mu Shui appeared before Donglin Yanxue in a single instance. Her face was filled with undisguised delight as she said in great relief, “As long as you’re alive, as long as you’re alive. I had thought you…”
As if Donglin Yanxue had found the only person she could rely on, she hugged Mu Shui tightly as she sobbed slightly, “Master, soon after we entered the World of Moon and Star, Qing Shan of the Martial Soul lineage appeared. He hunted us down. I had even thought I would never get to see you again.”
“I know. Yanxue, there’s no need to be afraid now. We already have many elders in the World of Moon and Star. They’re searching for Qing Shan everywhere. Once we find him, he’s dead for sure,” Mu Shui said gently, but Jian Chen clearly detected heavy killing intent in her voice.
Clearly, this was killing intent directed towards Qing Shan.
Not only did Qing Shan’s intrusion on the World of Moon and Star get in the way of the selection of the Chosen Saint, but he had injured or killed the five candidates as well. This made the Radiant Saint Hall furious.
“Let’s go. Let’s leave. Although your wounds are severe, you’ll be able to recover very soon as long as we return to the sacred hall,” Mu Shui said to Donglin Yanxue. Then she glanced at Jian Chen who stood there silently and said rather amiably, “Chang Yang, thank you for taking care of Yanxue these days.”
Afterwards, Jian Chen and Donglin Yanxue left the World of Moon and Star under Mu Shui’s lead, returning to the Radiant Saint Hall.
Many corpses were piled on the stage now. Not only were there over thirty Radiant Godkings, but even the corpses of the Chosen Saints amounted to three.
Out of the five candidates, Gongzheng Xin, Shi De, and An Da were dead. Only the fates of Donglin Yanxue and Xin Bin remained unknown.
At this moment, the atmosphere in the Radiant Saint Hall became extremely suffocating. Even the faces of the two vice-leaders had darkened.
At this moment, another elders flew out from the gateway with a corpse in hand. He placed it down gently on the stage and said painfully, “Xin Bin is dead as well.”
In that instance, the gazes of Xuan Zhan and Mo He became piercing. Everyone could clearly sense a terrifying killing intent, enough to destroy worlds, begin to accumulate within the two vice-leaders.
Elder Mu Zhong’s face became extremely pained as well. He murmured in a daze, “Four of the five candidates are already dead. It looks like Donglin Yanxue has met her end as well. Are we really going to go without a Chosen Saint this time?”
“No. Not all of the candidates are dead.” At this moment, a cry rang out from the gateway. Mu Shui flew out and beside her were Jian Chen and Donglin Yanxue wrapped in Radiant Saint Force.
“Yanxue is still alive,” Mu Shui directly landed on the stage with Jian Chen and Donglin Yanxue. The Radiant Saint Force dispersed and immediately exposed Jian Chen and Donglin Yanxue before everyone.
As soon as he saw Donglin Yanxue, elder Mu Zhong’s despaired eyes lit up with hope again. Even the faces of the two vice-leaders eased up slightly.
Clearly, a single candidate was worth far more than the Radiant Godkings in their eyes.
After all, once the Radiant Saint Hall lost all of its candidates, its ancient tradition would be broken in this generation. The humiliation would be immeasurable.
Before long, a second group of survivors were found by the elders. Three Radiant Godkings hiding in an extremely distant region of the World of Moon and Star had managed to survive this disaster as well.
Of course, the three of them only survived because Qing Shan had spared them. His intention was to reduce the suspicions towards Jian Chen and Donglin Yanxue’s survival.
Afterwards, the World of Moon and Star was investigated by the experts of the Disciplinary and Penal Halls. They wanted to find Qing Shan’s method of entering the World of Moon and Star. As for Jian Chen, Donglin Yanxue, and the three surviving Radiant Godkings, elders personally visited them to learn about the situation.
Jian Chen answered their questions about the World of Moon and Star selectively. Everything he said only included what he had experienced when he was acting like he only had a one-colored soulcore. He disclosed an extremely limited amount of information.
