    Chapter 298: Return, Awakening

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    As Qin Yun was being pulled towards a massive star by a mysterious power, a buddha that emitted endless light an infinite distance away smiled as it watched him. "This fellow actually managed to ascend? Now now, if you were to really enter the Effulgent World, it would be quite troublesome to get you back home. It's time to send you back now!"

    The buddha gently pointed.

    Qin Yun, who was flying towards the massive star, suddenly had a change in expression. He felt an unbelievable power befall him! He was being protected by a special power during his ascent, but against this unbelievable new power, everything else appeared infinitely weak.

    "This is..." Qin Yun instantly determined, "The Amita figurine's power."

    He was very familiar with this power.

    Since the beginning of this dream, it was this power that had sent him to two separate worlds.

    "Boom!" When the immense power descended upon him, Qin Yun's body was immediately pulverized. His clothes and weapons were completely destroyed, leaving nothing behind. As for his soul, it was enveloped by the power.

    At that moment, Qin Yun could see a radiating buddha with eyes filled with infinite wisdom an infinite distance away from the power. The buddha gave him a nodding smile.

    At that moment, Qin Yun's mind was sharpened by the fortuitous encounter. He knew that the buddha was Amita. He immediately sent a signal through his soul, asking the question he wanted to know the answer to. "Your Supremacy, were the two worlds I visited real?"

    "They are real." The buddha smiled and confirmed. "Qin Yun, it can be considered an act of fate that you obtained the figurine I left behind. Since the dream of a hundred years has ended, our shared fate has also come to an end. It's time for you to return. Return!"

    Following that, Qin Yun's mind went abuzz as everything turned white.


    Under the force of the power, Qin Yun's soul rapidly tore through spacetime. It was much faster than ascension. Soon, he arrived in a familiar world. It was the one and only Qin Manor in Jiang Prefecture's Grand Dominance!


    Jiang Prefecture's Grand Dominance. Qin Manor.

    In the chamber.

    Qin Yun's body had been sitting cross-legged for a hundred days straight.


    Qin Yun grunted softly as he opened his eyes to look at his surroundings.

    There was a light fragrance around him. The layout of the chamber was also somewhat familiar. It just appeared very distant in his memories. Following that, Qin Yun looked in front of him. The Amita wooden figurine that had been placed on the ground had shattered completely.

    "This wooden figurine was an opportunity Amita left behind." Qin Yun felt inundated by emotions.

    During the dream of a hundred years, he had descended into two worlds.

    He descended into Wing and possessed a body filled with bloodlust. During those fifty years, he had to constantly repress the killing intent in him.

    He then descended into Meng Yiqiu. He entered that world with a heart as still as water, a heart that resembled an ice mirror. Having such a calm mind aided him in various aspects but his emotions were a lot more subdued.

    But at that moment-

    He had returned to his true body. There was no longer any external influence which prevented Qin Yun from having a heart as still as water.

    "They were real."

    "The two worlds were real." Qin Yun's voice trembled. The memories from the those hundred years surged through his mind. "Huan'er... even if you can shatter the void and ascend, I don't know if we can ever meet! I am only of the sword immortal lineage. I'm unable to convert my cultivation. If I fail to create my own Essence Soul Dharmic formulation, I will only have a lifespan of five hundred years."

    "Also, Yuqing, Cailan. They were all real."

    Qin Yun closed his eyes as tears silently flowed down his cheeks.

    He now knew that they were real... but it was near impossible for him to ever meet them again!

    "In order to meet them again, I have to create my Essence Soul Dharmic formulation," thought Qin Yun. He also knew that Meng Huan and company had to achieve success in their cultivations!


    Qin Yun remained in the chamber for a long while as he got his feelings under control.

    Only after that did he stand up and open the door to the chamber.


    When he walked out of the chamber, he was met with a cold night breeze.

    Qin Yun instantly saw a table in the yard. A group of people was sitting around the table. They immediately stood up.

    "Brother Yun." Yi Xiao, who was dressed in a pale-red dress, stood there, looking at Qin Yun nervously. Standing beside her was the dragon lady, Ao Xue.



    Qin Liehu and Changlan, as well as his brother Qin An, were there too.

    Qin Yun looked at them and immediately his saddened heart felt a lot better.

    Even though he had spent a hundred years away, the days of surviving in the village with his parents and brother and the days of entering Grand Dominance City remained vivid in his memories. The experiences he had with his wife, Yi Xiao, were also deeply imprinted in his mind. They had fought Water God together, kissed under the moon while floating above the river's tidal wave... Lived a perilous life in the Immortal Abode and got married...

    "Mother-in-law. Father, Mother, Brother," greeted Qin Yun with a smile. "Why are all of you here this late?"

    "Yi Xiao told us that you would come out of seclusion tonight," said Changlan with a smile. "She said that this seclusion is different from the others and wanted everyone to welcome you back together."

    Yi Xiao was decked up in a pale red dress. It was evident that she had put a lot of effort into making herself up.

    She knew that Qin Yun was dreaming for a hundred years. It troubled her, made her worried that he would experience a great change in personality. She was afraid that he would forget her after spending a hundred years away from her. She had too many worries.

    "Xiaoxiao." Qin Yun walked over and gently hugged his wife.

    Yi Xiao entered Qin Yun's embrace.

    Their enjoyed their embrace and felt the heart beats and breaths of one another.

    "How do you feel after dreaming for a hundred years?" asked Yi Xiao with a whisper.

    "I missed you," replied Qin Yun.

    Some feelings would wane over time.

    However, there were some feelings that caused greater yearnings with time! They would become stronger! Qin Yun often missed his wife during the hundred years of dreaming. No other woman could enter his heart.

    When Yi Xiao heard this, her face could not help but suffuse a smile.

    "Yun'er," said Changlan with a smile when she saw this. "It's gotten quite late. We won't be disturbing you any longer. The both of you should head to bed early."

    "Yes, yes, yes. We shall be leaving." When Ao Xue saw her daughter and son-in-law enjoying their embrace, she also felt happy.

    The group of people left immediately.

    They did not know that Qin Yun had dreamed a hundred years. To Qin Liehu and company, going into seclusion for a hundred days did not seem that long.

    Soon, there was only Qin Yun and Yi Xiao left in the yard.

    "You made yourself up? You even used rogue and all kinds of cosmetics?" Qin Yun looked at the beautiful wife he was embracing.

    Yi Xiao's eyes were watery as she said with a pout, "I was worried someone would forget about his haggard wife after dreaming for a hundred years."

    "How can I forget? My Xiaoxiao is the most beautiful woman in the world," said Qin Yun immediately.

    "You sure have a glib tongue," said Yi Xiao with a smile.

    "It's already late. Let's go in and have a rest," said Qin Yun as tugged at her.

    "I still have things to tell you," protested Yi Xiao.

    "No matter what it is, as long as the world is not collapsing, we have to go in and have a rest right now," said Qin Yun. "Lone Yin does not lead to birth and solitary Yang does not allow growth. Xiaoxiao, you have only spent a hundred days without me but I spent a hundred years. I have been a solitary Yang for too long!"

    Yi Xiao could not help but blush. "Seriously, you..."

    Immediately, the two entered the room.

    After an Yin-Yang complementation romp that lasted half the night, they finally got some rest. Through the paper windows, they could see that the sky was gradually turning bright.

    Yi Xiao lay in Qin Yun's embrace as her jade-like arm was placed above the blanket.

    "By the way, Brother Yun. How was your hundred years dream? You previously said that it would guide your cultivation?" asked Yi Xiao curiously. "You are already this strong after cultivating for a few decades in the real world. How much progress have you made after dreaming for a hundred years? Did you step into the Dao?"

    "I have long stepped into the Dao and grasped my Sword Dao." Qin Yun chuckled. "I'm telling you, even some of the weaker Essence Soul fiendcelestials and immortals might not be a match for your husband, much less the other mortals."

    Yi Xiao was astonished. "You are that strong?"

    "I still have to nurture my Intrinsic Flying Sword. Once my Intrinsic Flying Sword is perfectly nurtured, I'll naturally be impressive." Qin Yun was rather confident. "You mentioned that you had something to tell me. What was it?"

    "Oh, there are two things," said Yi Xiao. "They are both rather important. The first thing has to do with your sister Chen Shuang whom you have always been concerned about! She has already returned to Grand Dominance."

    "Xiao Shuang is back?" Qin Yun was a little moved by the news.

    Eleven years ago, Chen Shuang had left Grand Dominance, leaving only a letter behind. There was no news of her thereafter.

    Qin Yun had always been worried about her.

    "She returned to Grand Dominance two months ago," said Yi Xiao. "She even came to our manor to meet you but you were in seclusion. Your sister was somewhat disappointed when she didn't get to see you."

    "Where is she now?" asked Qin Yun immediately.
