Chapter 378 Heavens Will, Outer Starry Sky
When Cui Hengs aura rushed out of the Grotto-Heaven, Jiang Caiyun had already sensed his existence.
However, at that time, she was in disbelief.
In her understanding, Cui Changsheng was already dead.
She had personally buried him.
This friend she valued so much was no longer around.
However, that aura was extremely similar.
When Cui Heng appeared, she looked at the figure in the sky and was even more confused.
Cui Changsheng and Cui Heng looked different.
When Cui Heng changed his identity to comprehend the laws of order, he naturally changed his appearance and temperament.
However, because Cui Changsheng was an identity he had prepared, he was similar to himself in many aspects.
Therefore, after Jiang Caiyun saw Cui Heng, she actually felt like her friend had come back from the dead.
However, before Cui Changsheng passed away, he was only at the Xiantian realm.
How could he be such a powerful supreme existence
She could not understand this situation.
Now, Cui Heng has appeared in front of her.
At this moment, she finally believed that the supreme existence in front of her was clearly the close friend she had personally buried.
For a moment, Jiang Caiyuns heart became extremely complicated.
Cui Heng stood there and looked at Jiang Caiyun gently.
He smiled and said, “How have you been”
“…” Jiang Caiyun fell silent when she heard this.
She stared at Cui Heng quietly for a long time without saying anything.
After a long while, she sighed softly and said, “Who is Cui Changsheng.”
“Cui Changsheng is me.” Cui Heng nodded slightly before shaking his head gently.
“But Im not Cui Changsheng.”
Cui Changsheng was a part of his cultivation process, so the identity of Cui Changsheng was a part of him.
However, it was impossible for Cui Heng to be equivalent to Cui Changsheng.
This was a difference between a part and a whole.
“Did you deliberately make Cui Changsheng stop cultivating and die when his lifespan was exhausted” Jiang Caiyun asked.
“No.” Cui Heng shook his head and said, “Cui Changshengs identity was never intended to surpass the 12 realms of the Mortal Realm from the beginning.
The outcome of this identity has been decided from the beginning.”
“…” Jiang Caiyun fell into a long silence again.
She closed her eyes gently, as if she was calming her emotions, and slowly said, “Is this the cultivation method of a high realm”
“No, its a cultivation method I discovered myself.” Cui Heng shook his head.
His cultivation method was very different from the high-level cultivation methods of this world.
“Wont you lose yourself in different identities” Jiang Caiyun frowned.
“Will you sometimes not be able to tell if youre Cui Changsheng or your original self”.
“No.” Cui Heng shook his head and chuckled.
“After your soul is perfected, there wont be a situation that will confuse your understanding.
After you cultivate the Dao Seed, you will naturally comprehend it.”
After refining a Dao Seed, one would become a Golden Immortal.
“…I understand.” Jiang Caiyuns brows suddenly relaxed.
She bowed respectfully to Cui Heng and smiled very gently.
“Thank you for your guidance, Senior.”
“Oh” This time, Cui Heng was stunned.
He sized up Jiang Caiyun slightly and nodded with a smile.
“This is naturally for the best.
Jiang Caiyuns sudden change in attitude surprised him.
He was even prepared to explain cultivation concepts to Jiang Caiyun.
As Cui Changsheng, he knew the relationship between the two very well.
Although they did not have any romantic feelings for each other, they were close friends.
After Cui Changsheng passed away, Jiang Caiyun stood in front of his tomb for a month before leaving
Such emotions were not something that could be put down with a few words.
He did not expect her to have already thought it through.
“However, I have a question for Senior,” Jiang Caiyun suddenly said.
“Please speak.” Cui Heng nodded slightly.
“Thank you, Senior.
Its like this…” Jiang Caiyun bowed respectfully and said in a low voice, “Actually, at first, my heart was filled with confusion and doubts.”
“I even wanted to grab your clothes and ask why.
Why did you lie Why did you fake your death Werent we close friends before”
“But when you really stood in front of me and explained to me that he was you, and you were not him, and his life was destined, I suddenly understood.”
“My good friend Cui Changsheng has already died.
He followed the trajectory of his fate and completed his mission.”
“I had already buried him with my own hands and put a full stop to his life.
From that time onwards, Cui Changsheng no longer existed in the world.
He only lived in my memories.”
“However, this also raised a doubt in my heart.
Since Cui Changshengs life has been arranged, is it possible that everything between you and me has already been arranged”
“Is there a faint will of the heavens that fiddled with the invisible strings and controlled the fate of all living beings My realm is low and I cant comprehend it.
Senior, please enlighten me.”
“Heavens will, fate…” Cui Hengs gaze turned calm as he fell into deep thought.
He suddenly looked up and then looked at Jiang Caiyun in front of him.
After a while, he shook his head and said frankly, “Its difficult to ask about the will of the heavens since ancient times.
I cant understand it either.”
Even to Cui Heng, who had already broken through to the Soul Formation realm, the will of the heavens still existed only in concepts and was filled with the unknown.
