    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao stood in front of the Rosy Dawn Door and could not help but turn their heads to look back.

    "After coming out, we won't be able to enter again," said Yi Xiao softly.

    "The six tokens are currently in the hands of the Scenic Mountain Sect." Qin Yun turned to look at the distant immortal abode as well. "Xiaoxiao, if you would like to return to take a look, we can just ask the Scenic Mountain Sect for help. Now, the immortal abode no longer has any important treasures. It shouldn't be difficult to request entry."

    "It doesn't matter even if we don't come back." Yi Xiao turned to look at Qin Yun. "Brother Yun, let's go. Let's step out."

    "Alright, out we go."

    The two took a step and passed through the Rosy Dawn Door.

    The Rosy Dawn Door's array formation activated. There was a spatial layer that disappeared when Qin Yun and Yi Xiao took the step forward. When the couple came out, the spatial layer condensed once again.

    They were out.

    Within the mountain door, it was an otherworldly paradise, with no one to disturb them. It was a world that belonged to the two of them.

    Beyond the mountain door, it was where the mortal world with all its bustle was.

    "Young Master Qin, Miss Yi." The two Daoists that manned the entrance bowed immediately.

    One of the Daoists said with a smile, "Congratulations to the two of you. We heard that Young Master Qin and Miss Yi had entered an array formation and because it was too powerful, no one dared to enter. No one expected that the both of you would come out by yourselves after three years."

    "There was a bit of luck involved," said Qin Yun with a smile. "May I know if your esteemed sect retrieved the manuals?"

    "We retrieved it." The Daoist was beaming as well.

    Out of curiosity, Yi Xiao asked, "Who was the one who obtained the numinous treasure, Tuṣita Divine Fire Talisman Amulet?"

    "It was obtained by the Primordial Chaos Sect's Young Master Zhu."

    "It's not that Lunatic Zhu but Young Master Eighth Zhu."

    The two Daoists answered.

    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao looked into each other's eyes and saw shock in them.

    "Eighth Zhu?"

    "Just like back when the first-grade Capital Heaven Talisman Amulet automatically entered your hands, the Numinous treasure, Tuṣita Divine Fire Talisman Amulet is probably fated with Eighth Zhu," said Qin Yun wistfully.

    Yi Xiao could not help but chuckle. "In that case, doesn't it mean that Ji Lie did not obtain any powerful treasures?"

    Qin Yun nodded with a laugh.

    At this moment-

    A distance away, a cotton-clothed middle-aged man walked out of the void. He had his pants and sleeves rolled up and he hung a fish basket on his back, making him resemble a fisherman. When the fisherman walked over, Yi Xiao immediately greeted, "Patriarch."

    Qin Yun could not help but be shocked. Patriarch? The Yi family's patriarch?

    That was one of the few top figures in the world. There were only a handful of family clans in the world that could match the Yi family.

    "Greetings Senior, I am Qin Yun." Qin Yun bowed respectfully as well.

    The fisherman strolled over and in a few steps, arrived in front of Qin Yun and Yi Xiao. As he looked at the two of them, he smiled and nodded slightly. "Good. I never expected that the both of you would come out so soon. Qin Yun, it's not bad that you risked your life to save Yi Xiao."

    "Xiaoxiao is my wife, so it's only natural I do so," said Qin Yun. Yi Xiao was taken aback. He had announced their marriage so directly? Although she was shocked, Yi Xiao still felt sweet delight.

    "Wife?" Patriarch Yi was taken aback as he looked at Qin Yun before looking at Yi Xiao.

    Yi Xiao said meekly, "Patriarch, Brother Yun and I were trapped within the immortal abode and were unsure as to when we would come out. Therefore, we got married inside the immortal abode."

    Patriarch Yi was startled momentarily before he laughed out loudly. "Good, good, good. Kiddo Qin Yun, if you wanted to marry Yi Xiao before the immortal abode, I would have had to test you. But now, you have met the requirements to marry Yi Xiao."

    "Thank you, Senior." Qin Yun revealed a look of delight. Having received Patriarch Yi's approval, no one from the Yi family would dare oppose his marriage.

    However, even if the Yi family had opposed it, the couple would have been bent on being together.

    It was still for the best that they had received approval.

    "Patriarch." Although Yi Xiao was delighted, she could not help but ask, "Have you been on this island the past three years?"

    Patriarch Yi gave a mild chuckle and said, "I have been touring the world anyway. For the past three years, I have been leading the life of a fisherman. And it's quite nice too, isn't it? Since the both of you are out, where do you plan on going next?"

    "The Inspector Heavenly Alliance," replied Qin Yun.

    "I guessed so." Patriarch Yi nodded. "In that case, let me escort the both of you there."

    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao gave their thanks immediately.

    "Your Yi family's patriarch has been on this island all this while. Xiaoxiao, it seems he thinks very highly of you." Qin Yun said through a voice transmission.

    Yi Xiao nodded gently.

    "Let's go."

    Patriarch Yi immediately brought the couple to depart on a cloud.

    ...

    The cloud flew at an extremely fast speed.

    "Patriarch," said Yi Xiao softly. "Second Uncle died in the array formation."

    "His transmission mark has long dissipated," said Patriarch Yi regretfully. "With my understanding of Scenic Yang, there shouldn't have been any danger in the immortal abode, but who knew..."

    "These are the remains of Second Uncle. We found it after we exited." Yi Xiao respectfully handed it over. Next, she flipped her hand and produced another Cosmic Bag. "These are the treasures Second Uncle and I obtained in the immortal abode. It includes the first-grade Capital Heaven Talisman Amulet."

    Patriarch Yi gave Qin Yun a glance and said with a smile, "I heard about it. If not for Qin Yun's help, this first-grade Capital Heaven Talisman Amulet might have been snatched away."

    "Senior, I'm only better at preserving my life with a flying sword," said Qin Yun humbly.

    "I would not take advantage of juniors like you." Patriarch Yi nodded. "Let's do it this way. Are you planning on selling the Golden Core Cauldron you obtained at the Inspector Heavenly Alliance?"

    Qin Yun nodded. "Yes."

    The Inspector Heavenly Alliance was comprised of various factions. It could allow the imperial government, Numinous Treasure Mountain, the Divine Firmament Chapter, and other factions to vie for it.

    "You have obtained too many treasures that even some immortals and fiendcelestials are moved by them," Patriarch Yi said. "You require a powerful defensive array formation. I will help your Qin family set up a Nine Heavens Astral River Array."

    Qin Yun was immediately overjoyed when he heard that. "Thank you, Senior."

    Yi Xiao was happy as well. "Thank you, Patriarch."

    The Nine Heavens Astral River Array was created by Patriarch Yi himself. It was long famous.

    Just the treasures and materials needed to set up the array could probably match half the first-grade Capital Heaven Talisman Amulet's value. Besides, it was set up by Patriarch Yi himself.

    "Women tend to align with their husbands." Patriarch Yi could not help but sigh when he saw Yi Xiao's delighted look.

    Yi Xiao's face blushed immediately. Qin Yun also laughed in response.

    "Kiddo Qin Yun, with your talent, it wouldn't be difficult to establish a top sect in the future," said Patriarch Yi. "Even if you do not establish one, you would be able to let your family thrive for generations. But now, you are in the most dangerous stage. You are young and you haven't amassed enough strength but you have many treasures on you! Fiendish demons will target you, so to establish a sect or to let your family thrive, it will need a lot of thought and preparation."

    "Yes, I have thought about it too." Qin Yun nodded. "Senior, with you setting up the Nine Heavens Astral River Array, I will also buy more treasures after selling the transcendent-grade Dharma treasure Golden Core Cauldron."

    "Oh? My Divine Firmament Chapter would like that Golden Core Cauldron as well. Might I know what treasures you would like to exchange for the Golden Core Cauldron?" said Patriarch Yi with a smile. "If you tell me ahead of time, my Divine Firmament Chapter would be able to make the necessary preparations."

    When Qin Yun heard that, he immediately answered, "One of them is an array formation and the second would be a Yellow-scarved Strongman. Of course, having something that matches a Yellow-scarved Strongman guard my Qin family would do as well."

    "Yellow-scarved Strongman?" When Patriarch Yi heard that, he joked, "You sure dare to dream. Yellow-scarved Strongmen are absolutely the best defenders of an entrance. However, a Yellow-scarved Strongman isn't worth less than a transcendent-grade Dharma treasure."

    "I only wish for the Yellow-scarved Strongman to guard my Qin family for a hundred years. There would not be any use for it after that," replied Qin Yun.

    "If that's the case, I can think of a way." Patriarch Yi nodded. "You mention that as long as it's a defensive force that matches a Yellow-scarved Strongman?"

    "Yes." Qin Yun nodded.

    Phew.

    The three of them continued flying.

    Qin Yun also obtained a message. He flipped his hand and produced the Inspect Heavenly Token.

    "Qin Yun, my young friend." The Inspect Heavenly Token projected a phantom who was none other than Palatial Lord Essence Charm. "Congratulations to the two of you for coming out safe and sound. You have relieved me as well. Are you heading to the Inspector Heavenly Alliance now?"

    "Yes, I'm heading to the Inspector Heavenly Alliance. After all, various human experts are gathered in the Inspector Heavenly Alliance," said Qin Yun with a smile. "What is it? Does the Scenic Mountain Sect also want the Golden Core Cauldron?"

    "No, not at all. My Scenic Mountain Sect has no thoughts on it. Even if we buy it, there's no one to use it." Palatial Lord Essence Charm answered immediately. At present, the Scenic Mountain Sect had only one Essence Soul immortal. He wasn't adept at alchemy so what was the point of buying the Golden Core Cauldron at all costs? Now, the Scenic Mountain Sect had invested all their precious items to develop the sect. After retrieving numerous manuals, they naturally needed to develop the sect on a large scale and nurture stronger disciples. With a few more Essence Soul immortals, they could look forward to the day of them becoming a Daoist sacred ground again.

    The two exchanged a few words casually before ending the transmission.

    ******

    Po Prefecture, Divine Firmament Chapter.

    In the deep depths of a palatial hall that was guarded heavily by array formations, a middle-aged Daoist wearing a Daoist robe and a tall headdress was sitting cross-legged. There were baffling charms lingering around him with starry skies faintly appearing. The stars seemed to revolve around him.

    The middle-aged Daoist frowned slightly as he opened his eyes.

    Hum!

    A phantom appeared beside him. It was Patriarch Yi.

    "Master," Patriarch Yi said.

    "Yi Yan, what's the matter?" The middle-aged Daoist said nonchalantly. He was the Divine Firmament Chapter's Ancestral Master Zhang. He had perfected the Divine Firmament Lightning Dharma independently, making it the best Lightning Dharma in the world! Under his leadership, the Divine Firmament Chapter also became a Daoist sacred land.

    "Master, weren't you interested in the Golden Core Cauldron?" Patriarch Yi said very politely. "That Qin Yun cares about his Qin family the most, so he is selling the Golden Core Cauldron for one, an array formation and two, a Yellow-scarved Strongman. Of course, the Yellow-scarved Strongman just needs to protect his Qin family for a hundred years."

    The middle-aged Daoist's eyes were indifferent but gradually, it restored a little of its luster. He gave Patriarch Yi a more amiable look. "A Yellow-scarved Strongman?

    "One that matches a Yellow-scarved Strongman in strength would do too, as long as it can protect the Qin family for a hundred years," Patriarch Yi said immediately."We can send some Dao soldiers. Master, you are skilled in alchemy. Our Divine Firmament Chapter also has two of the three volumes of the Golden Core Outer Pill recipe. As long as you have the Golden Core Cauldron, there will be a chance of you refining the Golden Core Outer Pills."

    "Indeed, the Golden Core Cauldron is an extremely good cauldron." The middle-aged Daoist nodded with a smile. "As for the Yellow-scarved Strongman, I happen to have one. It can be given to the Qin family to guard it for a hundred years."

    "Master, you have a Yellow-scarved Strongman?" Patriarch Yi was astonished.

    "I managed to capture and refine one two hundred years ago," said the middle-aged Daoist.

    "Congratulations, Ancestral Master! Other than Numinous Treasure Mountain, our Divine Firmament Chapter is now capable of refining Yellow-scarved Strongmen." Patriarch Yi was delighted.

    "It's nothing much." The middle-aged Daoist shook his head.

    ...

    Within Myriad Temple, the coiled dark red-scaled flood dragon's dragon beard was flailing in the water. His eyes emitted a look of astonishment. "I never expected Qin Yun and Yi Xiao to come out on their own."

    With that, Myriad Temple rapidly informed all parties. Humans, demons, and the Four Seas' Water race all received the news: Qin Yun and Yi Xiao had come out of the Scenic Yang Immortal Abode!
