Chapter 2411: An Honorable Guest?
Cultivators gradually gathered in front of the old mansion. These cultivators all had extraordinary temperaments and were disciples from large clans.
The Great Bright Domain was called the Divine Bright Domain in the past. It had pa.s.sed its heyday and had now become one of the weaker domains among the 18 domains of the Divine Prefecture. Moreover, the domain only consisted of one city. However, due to its glorious past, there were still quite a number of powerful forces residing in the current Great Bright Domain.
“The blind man has opened his doors,” commented someone. At Old Street, many people stared at the light that was still radiating outwards from within the wide-open doors. Their hearts trembled. Throughout the years, the doors were shut most of the time.
Now, the doors were open. Who was the guest that Blind Chen was about to receive?
Was this related to the prophecy that he proclaimed 20 years ago?
In the sky above Old Street, many silhouettes appeared. Their gazes landed on the old mansion too. These cultivators who had just arrived were people from different factions. They each occupied a spot in the sky.
Ye Futian and his group arrived as well. They stood in the sky above Old Street as they observed the mansion. Ye Futian cast a glance at Chen Yi, who was beside him. Judging from Chen Yi’s response, he was most likely acquainted with Blind Chen. Moreover, their relations.h.i.+p was special.
Was the beam of light that shot out from this mansion related to Chen Yi?
As expected, Chen Yi looked towards the inside of the mansion with a conflicted look. He said with a low voice, “Blind Man, I’m back.”
“Is this your home?” Ye Futian asked softly.
Chen Yi revealed a puzzled expression. Home? Did he have one?
Chen Yi had been calling him Blind Man since he was young. However, he was indeed raised by Blind Chen.
“I’ll go in and take a look first,” Chen Yi said to Ye Futian and the rest.
“Go ahead,” Ye Futian said while nodding. He was aware that Chen Yi had a special relations.h.i.+p with the owner of this mansion.
Alone, Chen Yi walked forward and entered the doors. Immediately, countless gazes landed on him. The crowd revealed strange expressions. Someone asked right away, “Who is he?”
The various cultivators revealed puzzled looks. They were not sure; they had not seen this person before.
Chen Yi entered the old mansion. Nothing happened after he entered. This caused the crowd to reveal even more bizarre expressions.
Blind Chen actually allowed people to enter the mansion just like that?
“Many years ago, Blind Chen once took in a youth. The youth was dressed in rags and was filthy. However, Blind Chen still took good care of him. Do you all still remember this?” Just then, a middle-aged man said this as he stood in the sky.
A few elderly cultivators nodded and said, “That’s right. Back then, there was also a rumor that someone saw light coming from the body of the filthy youth.”
In different locations, one by one, people began recalling that there had been such a youth before.
Someone claimed, “I saw it with my own eyes before. I still remember that when I saw the light on his body back then, I was astonished. After that, I never saw him again. He seemed to have been hidden away by Blind Chen.”
Down below, the group from the Lin clan also arrived. Lin Xi personally saw Chen Yi enter the mansion. She immediately understood why Chen Yi had such a huge reaction just now. So, he actually already knew Blind Chen and was raised by him.
From the looks of it, the youth was Chen Yi without a doubt.
Lin Xi lifted her head and looked in one direction. She discovered that the cultivators of the Lin clan had also arrived. Her group took to the sky and walked over to where the latter was. She then informed the seniors in a low voice about what had transpired before their arrival.
“Father, does the clan actually believe that Blind Chen can see the light and predict the future?” asked Lin Xi incredulously.
Her father shook his head and answered, “No one knows. However, there is indeed more to Blind Chen than meets the eye. He has lived in Great Bright City for many years. When I was young, Blind Chen was already as he is now, and he is still around today.”
“Cultivators do have very long lifespans. What’s so strange about that?” asked Lin Xi. “Once one reaches the Renhuang Plane, they will live as long as the heavens and the earth.”
“Maybe,” the middle-aged man replied indifferently. Lin Xi lowered her head and glanced down below. She then said, “All the cultivators in the Great Bright Domain have wasted more than 20 years because of what he said. Until now, we are still waiting. I don’t understand.”
When the middle-aged man heard what she said, he looked at the old mansion with a cold and indifferent gaze. What she said was true. After more than 20 years, where were the light and the divine relic?
“Today, we need to get a straight answer from Blind Chen,” he said in a low voice.
“What’s the matter? Lin Kong, do you not trust the old diviner?” another middle-aged man said loudly as he looked at Lin Xi’s father. This person was dressed in a long, blue robe. He was tall and had exceptional cultivation. He simply stood there and gave off the airs of an authoritative figure.
This person was the current family head of the Lan family, a top force of Great Bright City. He had powerful cultivation and was a Renhuang at his peak.
“It is not that I do not trust him. It is just that, after more than 20 years, the old diviner should give us an explanation,” replied Lin Kong in a deep voice.
“You can ask the old diviner personally later,” the Lan family head answered with a smile. In another location, there stood a group of cultivators. They were adorned in long robes as red as flames. The mark of a red maple leaf was also carved on their bodies. Faint scorching currents of heat could be seen emanating from their figures.
The leader of this group was a cultivator who appeared rather young. He was extraordinarily handsome, and his face was chiseled and well-defined. Although scorching heat currents were emanating from his body, he gave off a cold and arrogant air.
He was Yu Hou from the Yu family. He was the cultivator with the most outstanding talent in the family. Aside from the sun flare, he also comprehended the Method of Light. Although he was just an eighth-tier Renhuang for now, the family head of the Yu family, who was Yu Hou’s father, had already begun to let him handle family matters.
In another location, there stood a group of cultivators dressed in white robes. Their temperaments were outstanding, giving off an otherworldly vibe. This group of people was not from a major family. They were from a sect, the only sect in Great Bright City.
Seven Stars Mansion was established by a prominent figure many years ago. The chief of Seven Stars Mansion had unfathomable cultivation and rarely made an appearance in public.
Even today, the Seven Stars Mansion chief was not here. His seven disciples had come instead. They were the Seven Star Lords of Seven Stars Mansion. Each of them had very powerful cultivation. Their leader was currently the most exceptional cultivator in the sect, the head of the Seven Star Lords, Seven-Night Star Lord.
Lin clan, Lan family, Yu family, and Seven Stars Mansion were currently the four strongest forces in Great Bright City.
Of course, aside from them, several other forces had arrived. They were spread out across the region. However, they did not stand out as much as these four major forces.
“Since the old diviner has opened his doors to welcome a guest today, he will naturally solve the riddle that he left behind 20 years ago,” said Seven-Night Star Lord. The rest cast a glance at him and ignored his words. They continued to stare at the old mansion intently.
Today, Blind Chen welcomed a guest by showering the entire Great Bright City with light. All of them wanted to know who exactly Blind Chen was waiting to receive.
Just as the crowd was discussing the matter, two figures emerged from the old mansion. The surroundings fell silent immediately. Everyone had their gazes on the entrance.
Then, they saw two people emerging from the doors. One of them was Chen Yi, who had entered the mansion just now. The other person was blind and wore ragged clothes. He held a crutch in his right hand. He appeared no different than an ordinary, disabled old man. The crowd could not sense any aura from him. He was in his twilight years and looked like he would pa.s.s away at any moment.
His long, white hair appeared somewhat unkempt. Besides that, he kept a long white beard. He looked as though he had not tidied his hair for years. With his appearance, he looked nothing like an erudite master. However, despite his shabby appearance, his body was squeaky clean. There was not even a single speck of dust on his ragged clothes.
He was sloppy but not dirty!
“Greetings, Old Diviner.” The heads of the Lin clan and Lan family were more polite. Even though they were standing in midair, they bowed slightly in the direction where Blind Chen appeared. However, Yu Hou and the Seven Star Lords from Seven Stars Mansion were not so courteous. Yu Hou stood there unbudgingly and said, “The old master has finally come out from seclusion.”
“How can I not come out? There’s an honorable guest arriving today.” Blind Chen took a few steps forward with the help of his crutch before he finally said something. Even though his voice was not loud, everyone around could hear him clearly.
“Is he related to the prophecy that you proclaimed 20 years ago?” asked Lin Kong, the head of the Lin clan.
“Yes,” replied Blind Chen. He actually admitted it right away. This caused the surrounding cultivators to turn serious. The guest was actually related to the prophecy.
Furthermore, this was the first time Blind Chen validated any information related to the prophecy. From the looks of it, with the arrival of this extraordinary figure, the ruins of the Bright Temple might reveal itself once again.
“Who is this honorable guest that you are referring to?” Lin Kong further inquired.
Blind Chen held onto his crutch and continued to move forward in a certain direction. Everyone was observing where he was heading.
Ye Futian still stood at his spot silently. When he saw Blind Chen moving towards him, he couldn’t help but reveal an astonished expression.
Was he the honorable guest that Blind Chen mentioned?
Even though Ye Futian had just arrived here along with Chen Yi, based on the intel that he briefly gathered, Blind Chen was not an ordinary old man. Even the top Renhuangs here crowned Blind Chen as Chen the Diviner. A person like him had no reason to welcome Chen Yi’s friend with such fanfare. Blind Chen even caused such a huge commotion with his exceptional hospitality.
Moreover, Blind Chen mentioned that this guest was related to the prophecy.
It was precisely because of this that Ye Futian felt somewhat strange. Something was off.
Had Blind Chen been waiting for him?
The things that Chen Yi said to him before this were also rather baffling. Why did he feel like his encounter with Chen Yi back then was not just a coincidence?
