Chapter 670: Make up for heartfelt regrets, A big wedding half a year later
The marriage between the Ancient Immortal Gu Family and Peerless Immortal Dynasty actually made many forces dissatisfied more than ten years ago. However, they were frightened by the strength and antiquity of the two forces, as well as the unfathomable background.
The forces of all parties did not dare to speak out, for fear of retaliation from the two forces. Now, Gu Changge and Yue Mingkong had also reached the age of marriage, and the forces of both parties intend to let the two get married to achieve a positive result.
Gu Changge came all the way from the Ancient Immortal Gu Family to the Peerless Immortal Dynasty, and he didn’t hide his tracks on purpose, so all the forces had noticed and guessed his purpose of visit.
Some people thought that Gu Changge’s trip to the Peerless Immortal Dynasty was likely to discuss the wedding date with Yue Mingkong. The two were talented and beautiful, and they were a match made in heaven.
In terms of momentum and status, it was very difficult to find someone comparable to Gu Changge in the entire Upper Realm. Even the Ancestors of various races and forces had to be polite in front of Gu Changge and dare not overstep.
For the younger generation, Gu Changge had already become an insurmountable and terrifying mountain. There was a gap like a moat between the two, and it was difficult to see its bottom.
Although Yue Mingkong also belonged to the younger generation, in fact, she had already surpassed almost all her peers in terms of power. She could talk to many sect masters and Great Sect leaders on the same level, and sit on an equal footing.
Apart from her, the younger generation probably didn’t have anyone who was worthy of Gu Changge. Various outside forces had a lot of discussions on this matter, and they were paying close attention to the movement of the Peerless Immortal Dynasty. But in the next few days, even many ministers and female officials in the court could not see Yue Mingkong.
The several court meetings were handled by Emperor Yue in person, instead of him retreating behind the scenes like before.
In this regard, various speculations had emerged. Some people said that Empress Yue Mingkong was cultivating a divine method and needed to retreat for a while. Some people also said that she and Gu Changge were together, discussing the method of cultivation, and demonstrating it to each other, in order to step further. But in fact, during this period of time, Gu Changge and Yue Mingkong didn’t do anything, and naturally, they didn’t cultivate.
He accompanied Yue Mingkong from the Peerless Immortal Dynasty’s Imperial Capital and traveled to many corners of the Upper Realm. The two were like a couple of gods. The mountains and rivers were magnificent and the world was beautiful as they had left their footprints.
In various places, there were creatures or cultivators who had discovered the traces left by Gu Changge and Yue Mingkong. Many young cultivators were even more excited, and they consecrated that place for future generations to look up to. Whether it was Gu Changge or Yue Mingkong, their future was definitely to be the absolute protagonist in this world, reaching an incredible realm.
The traces they left behind were naturally not trivial. Yue Mingkong was very satisfied and happy, and the smile on her face almost never stopped.
Gu Changge made up for many of her regrets. No matter if it was her previous life or now, she never thought that there would be such a day when she would be able to travel all over the world with her beloved. Walking in the mortal world, living in a house by the lake, living in seclusion in the mountain village, like an old couple.
Work at sunrise and rest at sunset, men plow and women weave, peaceful and quiet. This kind of life could also make up for the debt that Gu Changge had felt toward Yue Mingkong for many years.
Compared with the intrigue among cultivators, he actually liked this kind of life, but he understood that this kind of life won’t last long. The two traveled all over the Upper Realm, and also went to some forbidden areas. They stopped outside and planned to enter, but they gave up later.
Gu Changge just wanted to quietly accompany Yue Mingkong through this world’s mountains, and seas. He didn’t want to cause more trouble.
At his current level, even many forbidden areas in the Upper Realm could be safely stepped into, unless there was actually hidden power beyond the Immortal Realm.
In this way, after half a year, Yue Mingkong and Gu Changge returned to the Peerless Immortal Dynasty.
That was to say, on the day she returned to the imperial capital, Emperor Yue appeared in person in front of all civil and military officials, and ordered the officials of the Immortal Dynasty that the throne would be transferred to his daughter Yue Mingkong.
This decision shocked the entire Peerless Immortal Dynasty, including all the forces around who were paying close attention to this matter. The same was true, which was incredible.
In their view, although Yue Mingkong was the Empress, she was still young, only in her twenties, and her cultivation level was not enough, how could she completely control the entire Immortal Dynasty?
After all, not just anyone in the younger generation could be like Gu Changge, at such an age, had the strength to overthrow the existence of the older generation.
Although Yue Mingkong had managed the Peerless Immortal Dynasty in an orderly manner during this period of time, her wrists were tough, after all, there was something missing.
Compared with the leaders of the Immortal forces and Supreme sects, she was too young and inexperienced, and so was her strength. However, on the day when the Emperor gave the order to abdicate the throne, Gu Changge, who had disappeared for a while in the Upper Realm, reappeared and accompanied Yue Mingkong in the palace of the Peerless Immortal Dynasty.
After he showed up, he didn’t do anything, he just said something briefly to the officials before announcing his and Yue Mingkong’s wedding date. The two of them decided to hold a big wedding half a year later, and they would entertain almost all the forces in the Upper Realm.
As soon as this matter was announced, it immediately caused a huge sensation, and the officials of the Peerless Immortal Dynasty were shocked. The news came as quickly as if it had grown wings, causing major earthquakes in various places.
In almost every ancient city, there were cultivators talking about this matter, and they were looking forward to the wedding of Gu Changge and Yue Mingkong in half a year.
Many factions and sects that were extremely far away from the territory of the Peerless Immortal Dynasty and the Ancient Immortal Gu Family even began to send disciples and elders on the same day, with heavy gifts, to rush over, intending to catch up with the big wedding in half a year.
The marriage between the Peerless Immortal Dynasty and the Ancient Immortal Gu Family was an unimaginable event. Especially among the two married people, there was Gu Changge, who was now a well-deserved leader in the Upper Realm.
This news swept past like a hurricane, but all cultivators who heard about it were shocked and astonished. And after Gu Changge appeared in the Peerless Immortal Dynasty, many ministers who complained about Emperor Yue’s abdication of the throne also shut up one after another.
After all, with Gu Changge backing Yue Mingkong, who would dare to complain?
Since then, Yue Mingkong succeeded to the throne and became the new Empress, and was honored as Empress Mingkong by the Peerless Immortal Dynasty. Since it became the historical record of the Upper Realm, she was one of the few people who was in charge of an Immortal Dynasty in their twenties.
The forces of all parties were in line with each other, and they also sent congratulatory gifts as soon as possible to express their goodwill. Half a year later, Yue Mingkong would be Gu Changge’s wife, and the power behind her was simply beyond imagination.
Therefore, the forces of all parties dared not offend her and tried their best to curry favor. And just when the Upper Realm caused huge disturbances because of this matter, in a palace in the imperial capital of the Peerless Immortal Dynasty. Yue Mingkong frowned lightly, and several brilliant divine lights shone from her jade hands, suspended in the sky as she said to Gu Changge behind him, “I have only condensed four of the Seven Heavenly Artifacts you sent over… The remaining three pieces are difficult to condense, namely the Heavenly Tower, the Heavenly Sword, and the Heavenly Bottle.”
