Chapter 370 Life Is Tough, A Hundred Years Is A Short Period Of Time
Cui Heng was slightly stunned when he saw the young woman.
Then, he smiled and said, “Why is Pavilion Master Jiang here”
This woman was none other than the current head of the Vast Water Sword Pavilion, Jiang Caiyun, who was famous in the southern part of the Great Zhou Dynasty.
She was just over a hundred years old and had already reached the Heaven Monarch Realm.
Under the long and stable rules of order, the Great Zhou had already completed their overall rule of Purple Sun Star.
In order to make it easier to manage, the entire planet was divided into four regions.
Every region was divided into more than a hundred states.
Moreover, from the Fourth Realm of the Immortal World onwards, the Imperial Court would arrange special cultivation places and would not easily step into the mortal world.
This formed the situation where a Heaven Monarch was the peak of a state.
Jiang Caiyun was one of the top experts in the martial world of Qingzhou.
There were also rumors that she was about to break through to the Mystic Deity realm and was about to be led to a more suitable place to cultivate by the Imperial Court.
Soon, she would transcend the mortal world.
However, very few people knew that Pavilion Master Jiang, who was famous in Qingzhou, had also searched hard for someone.
A person who had long disappeared from the eyes of the world.
“I came to see you.” Jiang Caiyuns expression was very complicated.
She looked at Cui Heng gently and her eyes swept across his white hair.
She sighed softly and said, “How have you been all these years”
“Not bad.” Cui Heng was very carefree.
He walked over and opened the door of the residence.
He smiled and said, “Come in and talk.”
With that, he walked into the courtyard as usual and arrived at a pavilion.
He casually patted the stone stool inside and blew the dust off it.
Jiang Caiyun looked at this old figure and was slightly dazed.
In a daze, she felt as if she was seeing the high-spirited youth from a hundred years ago.
She nodded and smiled.
Under the pavilion.
Jiang Caiyun moved gently and sat opposite Cui Heng, looking at him gently.
“Why did Pavilion Master Jiang come to look for me this time” Cui Heng said with a normal expression.
“This is the Western Region.
Its not easy to come from the Southern Region.” “Its nothing important…” Jiang Caiyun shook her head gently.
After a moment of silence, she said to Cui Heng, “Im about to break through to the Mystic Deity realm.
“Congratulations.” Cui Heng praised sincerely, “You became a Human Immortal in your early 100s.
You can be said to be extremely talented.
Its not difficult to become a Golden Immortal before the age of 500.”
“I can help you undergo a rebirth now.” Jiang Caiyun looked at Cui Heng and said solemnly, “I can use my Dharma Idols origin to help you rebuild your foundation.
There will definitely not be any hidden dangers and it will also greatly increase your aptitude.”
“I said that theres no need to be like this.” Cui Heng shook his head gently.
“Im very satisfied with my current life.”
These were sincere words.
In the past hundred years or so, it could be said to be the most stable and peaceful life he had since he walked out of the Beginners Space.
Sometimes, he even subconsciously felt that it was not bad to continue living like this, but this thought would be extinguished by him the moment it appeared.
In this high-level Xianxia space-time world where Immortal Kings roamed freely and ferocious beasts were everywhere, it was not a problem to relax occasionally.
However, if he forgot himself and directly lay down flat, he would be courting death.
Now that he was about to break through to the Soul Formation realm, this peaceful life would come to an end.
He was still a little reluctant to leave.
It was a little like lazing in bed.
“Youre still like this.” Jiang Caiyun was a little dejected.
Then, she leaned closer to Cui Heng and stared into his eyes with her bright eyes.
She said with concern, “But youll die.
The lifespan of a Xiantian cultivator is only 120 years.
You dont have much time left.”
“Its not bad for my life to end here.” Cui Heng smiled.
He was referring to his life in the past 300 years, from the moment he destroyed the White Lotus Lifeless Sects headquarters and defeated the Holy Mother of White Lotus.
“…” Jiang Caiyun fell silent.
She only looked at Cui Heng in a daze and did not say anything for a long time.
After a long while, she seemed to have thought about many things before she slowly stood up and said in a low voice, “I respect your choice.”
With that, she turned to leave.
But before she could reach the door, she heard footsteps outside and saw two people walking in.
The door was not closed.
“Elder Cui, Ive brought someone over.
A young man is here to visit you.” Lu Huo walked in arrogantly as if this was his own home.
“Elder Cui, I came to…” Ren Feng followed behind Lu Huo and was about to bow to Cui Heng when he suddenly saw Jiang Caiyun standing at the side.
He immediately exclaimed, “Pavilion Master Jiang!”
Jiang Caiyun also looked at Ren Feng in surprise and asked curiously, “Why are you here too”
“You know each other” Cui Heng asked with interest.
“Hes my third disciples husband,” Jiang Caiyun explained to Cui Heng.
“Greetings, Pavilion Master Jiang.” Ren Feng hurriedly bowed to Jiang Caiyun with a very respectful attitude.
“Im here to pray for Yuer and the child in her stomach.
“When I entered God Cui Temple, this old man gave the incense to me.
I came here to thank this old man.
I didnt expect to meet you here.”
The Yuler he was talking about was Jiang Caiyuns third disciple.
“Theres no need to thank me.” Cui Heng waved his hand and smiled.
“Its good enough that you came.
You, your wife, and the child will be blessed with great fortune in the future.”
“How long until Yuer gives birth” Jiang Caiyun asked.
“There are still two months.” Ren Feng smiled and said, “Previously, Yuer even said that she wanted to invite you over.
Ill let you take a look when the child is born.”
“Ill be there.” Jiang Caiyun nodded and smiled.
The birth of a new life always brought joy.
She was happy to be stained with joy.
However, she quickly thought of a certain life that she cared about very much and felt her heart sink.
Hence, Jiang Caiyun looked at Cui Heng and wanted to invite him along, but she opened her mouth and did not say anything in the end.
“Dont look at me.” Cui Heng seemed to have seen through what Jiang Caiyun wanted to say.
He shook his head and chuckled.
“Im an old man.
I plan to stay here until I die of old age.”
“Elder Cui, what are you talking about Youll definitely live for hundreds of years.” Lu Huo came over and said with a smile, “I see that your body is very strong.
Youre much stronger than many young people who like to stay up late.”
“The will of the heavens is coming.
No matter how strong my body is, it cant withstand the erosion of time.” Cui Heng shook his head and waved his hand.
“You guys can leave.
Ill sit alone for a while.”
Ren Feng wanted to persuade him, but Lu Huo stopped him.
“Dont worry, Elder Cui is open-minded.” Lu Huo patted Ren Fengs shoulder gently and pulled him out.
He smiled and said, “Moreover, you received Elder Cuis blessings today.
“Thats not good.
You have to treat me to wine and meat, haha!”
Amidst the laughter, their figures gradually disappeared.
Only Cui Heng and Jiang Caiyun were left in the courtyard.
Cui Heng looked at Jiang Caiyun and smiled.
“Arent you leaving”
“If I leave, will I never see you again” Jiang Caiyun looked at Cui Heng, her eyes flickering with sorrow.
“Your vitality is draining rapidly.
In less than three days, your lifespan will be exhausted.”
In her perception, Cui Hengs body was like a huge funnel, and it was dilapidated.
The life force in his body was flowing away at an extremely fast speed like a river flowing into the sea.
“Life is tough.
A hundred years is a short period of time.
This is a life that satisfies me.” Cui Heng had a faint smile on his face.
He stood up and looked at Jiang Caiyun with a smile.
“Dont look at me like Im a heartless man.”
“Youre already someone whos about to die, yet youre still joking.” A smile bloomed on Jiang Caiyuns face, as if she had just thought of something.
She smiled and said, “I suddenly thought that after you die, I can protect your soul and let you reincarnate before taking you in as my disciple.
“Go, go, go.” Cui Heng waved his hand and said with a smile, “Do you really want to see me die”
“…” Jiang Caiyun fell silent for a moment before sighing faintly.
“Someone has to arrange the matters after your death for you, right”
Cui Heng was stunned for a moment before he nodded and said with a smile, “Alright, remember to carve the tombstone better.”
Cui Hengs current identity was quite close to Jiang Caiyun.
They had known each other for a long time and had experienced many tribulations together.
They could be said to be life and death friends.
But they were not a couple.
Jiang Caiyun was a person who wholeheartedly pursued the Dao and did not have any romantic feelings.
Cui Hengs identity only focused on living a carefree life.
At the same time, he carefully understood what was the difference between different identities under the rules of order.
This way, although their relationship was close, there would be no sparks.
If there was a word to describe it, it would be Dao companions.
Although they could only be considered Dao companions to Cui Hengs identity, it allowed them to understand each others personalities and pursuits.
Therefore, Jiang Caiyun would not forcefully interfere with Cui Hengs thoughts for the sake of her own feelings, and Cui Hengs identity would not change because of Jiang Caiyuns thoughts.
Three days later.
Cui Hengs identity was severed according to the established arrangements.
His breathing and heart stopped.
After the last night of his life.
When the morning sun rose, he died of old age.
Jiang Caiyun personally organized the funeral and buried him well.
She also personally engraved a tombstone.
“The tomb of my friend Cui Changsheng.” She stood in front of Cui Changshengs grave for a full month, day and night, wind and rain.
Finally, she left with a long sigh.
From then on, Jiang Caiyun had no more worries.
There was only the boundless Great Dao in her heart.
After Jiang Caiyun left, Cui Hengs last identity was dead.
Then, he returned to his original appearance and appeared in the Great Zhou Imperial Palace.
After 300 years, he finally returned.
Li Mingqiong sensed Cui Hengs aura immediately and immediately rushed over.
She bowed respectfully.
“Disciple greets Master.
Congratulations on cultivating to perfection.”
“Youve done very well in the past 300 years.” Cui Heng nodded in praise.
Then, he said, “Next, Ill enter seclusion.
There might be some movement outside after a while.
You have to maintain the order.”
“Master, dont worry,” Li Mingqiong said solemnly.
“Thats good.” Cui Heng smiled and disappeared.
He was about to start breaking through.
In the forbidden area of the Purple Sun Heaven Divine Palace.
Zhuo Fan knelt on the ground with a pale face.
A ball of light flickered in front of him.
This light was distorted and overlapped, as if it was intertwined with the endless Great Dao.
Layers of voices sounded around him.
“The time has come.
My reincarnation is about to be born on Purple Sun Star.
Go and welcome him quickly!”
