How could Qin Wentian not be sad as well? But to pursue a higher peak, to pursue the secret of his birth, to find Qing`er, he had no choice but to leave this place.
Right now he no longer felt any pressure from the Royal Sacred Region. It would only obstruct his growth.
The Medicine Sovereign would remain behind to nurture and guide Mo Qingcheng. Hence, the only one who could bring Qin Wentian out was naturally none other than Swordsaint Li Mubai.
In the air, Qin Wentian sat on the flying boat as it shuttled through the skies at blinding speed.
"Is there a boundary to these skies?" Qin Wentian already couldn't see the silhouettes far below him.
"In particle worlds, there would usually be a formless restrictive force enveloping it. For people of particle worlds who want to leave it, they need an immortal-ranked expert outside to connect the passageway, breaking through the layer of restrictive force before they can exit." Li Mubai explained as Qin Wentian nodded his head. Since he could sense the existences of constellations in the nine heavenly layers and he could even summon astral warbeasts, this already proved that the restrictive layer was made from formless energy and it wasn't corporeal.
After a long period of time, Qin Wentian already didn't know how high an altitude he was at. He could already faintly sense that invisible layer of restrictive force. Even the speed of their flying boat had perceptibly slowed.
"Okay, I'm going to break apart the restriction layer now. Prepare yourself." Li Mubai spoke. After which, he brought Qin Wentian as he abruptly shuttled forward. At this moment, Li Mubai was akin to a sharp sword, immortal light circulated around him as swords slashed the invisible formless pressure above. An intense fluctuation trembled the space as a light sound echoed out. Qin Wentian only saw stars in his eyes as a terrifying force flung him outwards to a boundlessly vast space.
"This..." Qin Wentian's heart trembled deeply. He stared ahead as he saw stretches of resplendent twinkling lights that enveloped the boundless starry skies within.
"Where's the Royal Sacred Region?" Qin Wentian's heart thumped.
"Over there, we were pushed out. It's only a particle from our point of view now." Li Mubai's immortal corona enveloped Qin Wentian as well. He pointed to a pinpoint of light somewhere around. That's right, the Royal Sacred Region was merely a pinpoint of light amidst countless others.
"That's...?" Qin Wentian's heart trembled intensely. Over there, countless pinpoints of light flickered. Could it be that each dot of light was a particle world?
"Yes, that stretch of space where our Royal Sacred Region is situated, around it are all particle worlds as well. Right now, we are already very far from them that's why they appear so small. However when you go near, you will discover that each particle world is also boundlessly vast. But of course, in comparison to the immortal realms, it's merely a drop of water in the ocean." Lu Mubai smiled as he explained. Qin Wentian stared somewhere toward the horizon in the immortal realms that was radiating scintillating light. It was as though the light emanating from the particle worlds were merely a reflection of that from the immortal realms. His gaze darted left and right but no matter where he looked, it would still be within the radius of the immortal realms.
"Are particle worlds on a layer above or below the immortal realms?" Qin Wentian mused.
"Silly brat. In the boundless void how could there be directions like up and down. Up and down are merely points that are opposites." Li Mubai smiled. Qin Wentian started before nodding his head. In the void, where would there be true directions? If two people were drifting in the void in opposite directions, who would be the one on the main way and who would be the one drifting in reverse?
"Actually, the Royal Sacred Region as well as the other pinpoints of light over there, they are the particle worlds around the Azure Mystic Immortal Region." Li Mubai explained.
"Azure Mystic Immortal Realm? I heard that there are a total of thirty three heavenly realms all together, where are those?" Qin Wentian stared at that stretch of astral region. A particle world when viewed from so far away, was truly akin to a particle. Some worlds were even so small that one couldn't see it with the naked eyes.
"Don't think too far. Just this stretch of worlds alone is already considered very, very vast for you. Let's be on our way." Li Mubai brought Qin Wentian and headed towards the direction of the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms. At the same time, he also reminded, "I have immortal energy, hence I have no problem resisting the suction force from the immortal realms. But you have no way to do so, when we get closer, the gravity in the atmosphere will form a suction force that draws you towards the ground. Try not to resist it. With your defense, you shouldn't die from such a fall. But, I won't be going with you. Hahaha!"
"No problem, senior has already done a lot for me." Qin Wentian replied with gratitude.
"Prepare yourself well, the area we will be landing in should be at the Cloud Prefecture of the Azure Mystic Immortal Realm. But we have no way to determine to which city you will appear in. Let's go." Li Mubai spoke, bringing Qin Wentian with him as he sped towards the immortal region.
Qin Wentian stared at the boundlessly vast immortal realms, it was situated within an astral region in space and felt like the heavenly layers he had perceived through his perception. A smile painted his face as his heart was filled with an endless yearning.
Not too long later, Qin Wentian felt a terrifying suction force pulling him into that world. The closer he got, the more intense the suction force became.
"In the future be more cautious when you are roaming the immortal realms. Go on." Li Mubai released Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian instantly felt like a shooting star as the suction force began acting on him, pulling him down with great speed. A dazzling trail formed from his trajectory, but was of negligible brilliance when compared to the light radiating from the immortal realms. At this moment, no one in the immortal realms knew what kind of waves the person causing this trajectory would cause in the future.
The Azure Mystic Immortal Realm was a real world of the immortal realms. Around this region were countless particle worlds. There were also an endless number of experts belonging to an uncountable number of powers.
Within these powers, the most famous ones are naturally none other than those who stood at the peak. And the thirteen prefectures of Eastern Sage were counted within.
The Eastern Sage thirteen prefectures were the thirteen great prefectures of the Azure Mystic Immortal Realm. It was so vast that the distance is inconceivable, and had the name of Thirteen Great Prefectures. Before this, these prefectures weren't named this. But after the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor appeared. He unified the thirteen prefectures before it got its current name.
The naming of worlds in the immortal realms usually occurs from whoever rules the region. For example, the Evergreen Immortal Empire in the Azure Mystic Immortal Region didn't have the name 'Evergreen' in the past. It was only after Immortal Emperor Evergreen took over and governed the empire did it have its name changed.
The thirteen prefectures of Eastern Sage were the same as well. The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor established the Eastern Sage Palace, as well as the Eastern Sage Mountains which was his very own sect. The number of disciples and subordinates he had, contended and vie against other supreme powers before gaining victory. The Eastern Sage Immortal Empire has a history of several hundred years and after the thirteen prefectures were unified, the Eastern Sage Mountains became the sacred grounds here. Although the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor didn't directly control and govern the thirteen prefectures, everyone knew who the real master of these prefectures were.
The Cloud Prefecture was none other than one of the thirteen prefectures of the Eastern Sage. It was governed by a disciple of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor known as the Idle Cloud Immortal King. There were also countless minor and major powers in the Cloud Prefecture, but there were none who dared to title the places they ruled as countries. Establishing a country inside the territory of an immortal emperor without approval was simply asking for death.
There were already a total of eighty-one countries within the Cloud Prefecture and each country had many cities within them. Hence, the number of cities within the Cloud Prefecture were so many that it can be considered countless.
The Worryfree City was none other than a city among the countless number of cities in the Cloud Prefecture.
And at this moment in the airspace above the Worryfree City, a streak of light abruptly appeared, shooting downwards like a bolt of lightning as rumbling sounds echoed from its terrifying speed.
"What is that?" The people of Worryfree City raised their heads and stared at the shooting star-like object. Many silhouettes flickered as they retreated, worried that the object might smash into them.
A thunderous boom sounded out as an incomparably huge crater appeared on the ground. The people in a hundred miles radius could sense the quaking of the earth. And as for those nearby, they felt the rumbling shaking their entire bodies. Their eyes flashed sharply as they turned their eyes towards the crater.
After which, they only saw a figure cloaked in blood, appearing in an extremely miserable state. It was actually a human being.
"Why would that person fall down from the sky?" Some of those nearby had a lack of comprehension on their faces.
"This person is still so young. Falling down from that height at such a speed...If he isn't dead he must have already been paralyzed right?" Someone muttered. But after that, they only heard sounds of cursing from the lips of the bloody figure. The figure then struggled a little, moving his body, causing all of them to be stumped with shock.
This fellow, what an insane defense. He could still move in such a state?
At this instant, Qin Wentian had the impulse to beat someone up. He was lied to by Swordsaint Li Mubai. When Li Mubai left him, from what Li Mubai said, Qin Wentian assumed that he should have the strength to resist the pull slightly. But when the suction force drew him in, he discovered that his entire strength was completely useless. He was smashed ruthlessly onto the ground, causing an immense headache and was in an extremely miserable state. If he knew this earlier he would have gotten Li Mubai to bring him down personally no matter what.
Under the stunned gazes of the crowd, Qin Wentian crawled his way up and sat at the side of the crater, staring at the crowd. His deep eyes flickered as he surveyed the people here in the immortal realms.
The majority had cultivation bases at the Celestial Phenomenon Realm, and the younger ones were all Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns. It wasn't like what many in the particle worlds have assumed. That everyone in the immortal realms were immortals.
The immortal realms held countless lives in them. After every human was born, they had to depend on themselves to grow stronger step by step. It was the same as in the particle worlds, this was an unchanging rule. The people below immortals would flood the realms, and not everyone could stand at the peak.
"Hey why did you fall from the skies?" At this moment a person walked forward and asked. This was a young man around sixteen to seventeen years of age. His gaze was simple and unsophisticated, filled with an honest curiosity as he gazed at Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian didn't say anything but the young man continued, "Your injuries seems to be quite heavy. Let me bring you back, my grandpa should be able to treat your injuries."
