"Hey, did you hear, Li Yunmu seems to have died inside."

"F*ck, this can’t be true? Just two days ago this genius was conferred the title of one of the thirty-six heavenly major generals. How could he have dared to die."

"Who knows. Every year, there aren’t just one or two formidable newcomers who die within the Tower of Glory. This has been happening for a long time so it’s not that strange. In any case, the people at the official forum of Cloud City Warzone are going crazy. According to rumors, after he cleared the fifteenth level, there haven’t been any news about him. Other than dying inside, what else could have happened?"

"Alas, such a formidable genius, the new star of our Heavenly Cloud City, how could he have died so easily?"

Many people sighed inwardly.

In the two days, many things had happened.

But presently, among the fluxers of the Heavenly Cloud City, the matter being discussed the most was the supreme glory earned by the newcomer genius Li Yunmu a few days ago and the news of him falling in the tower.

"Although this Li Yunmu had some strength, he had overestimated himself. Could it be that his sect didn’t inform him that within the Tower of Glory, those who lose themselves to greed are certain to die?"

At this moment, within the Heavenly Cloud City’s fluxer association, one youth wearing luxurious clothes, spoke up with a sneer. "Oh right, elder sis, now that this guy died inside the tower, my mission should also be cancelled. You do know that my time is extremely precious, I don’t have enough of it to waste here waiting for someone who had merely cleared the fifteenth level of the tower. Ha ha, I don’t know why we have to place so much importance on him, given our status."

"Qingyang, you still haven’t learned to be patient. Since our father solemnly entrusted us with this task, we have to accomplish it. If this Li Yunmu really wasn’t worth it, then why would our father have called me back."

A female wearing red clothes remained completely unmoved. She kept waiting patiently, elegantly standing in the wind like the most beautiful flower at sunset.

Behind her there was an orderly group of battle soldiers wearing cyan-blue military uniforms. On top of their uniforms there was an insignia of a green cloud on which two words, ‘Green Cloud’, were engraved.

Each of the soldiers had a serious expression on his face, and all of them had a suppressed aura of fierceness around them. The expression of ruthlessness was quite apparent in all of their eyes. As long as any educated person saw them, they would quickly recognize who they were.

These were the soldiers of the Heavenly Cloud City. Furthermore, the green cloud insignia on their uniforms belonged to the biggest trump card of Heavenly Cloud City troops known as Green Cloud Regiment. In this squad, the cultivation of golden crystal was the lowest. From this alone it could be understood how extremely formidable were these people.

Within Heavenly Cloud City, only those who had great ability and influence would use golden crystal fluxers to form a guarding squad. Thus, it wasn’t very difficult to recognize the two, less than twenty year old people. One of whom was male and the other female.

The male one was Heavenly Cloud City’s city lord’s son, Lin Qingyang, who had the first position on the list of Cloud City Warzone’s top ten most powerful. The female, on the other hand, was even more famous, for she was the goddess of Heavenly Cloud City - Lin Yuerou. She was also the stepsister of Lin Qingyang.

The arrival of the two people instantly attracted attention of the people inside the fluxer association. According to rumors, Lin Yuerou hadn’t appeared in public for close to two years now. From the time she had entered the Blue Cloud Sect, it was extremely rare for even the people of the city to catch a glimpse of her. That’s why no one had expected that today these two siblings would come here together.

"Is Lin Yuerou waiting for that Li Yunmu who had created so much buzz two days ago? But there has been no news about him for the past two days, does our city lord still believe that he’s alive?"

"That should be the case. However, I’m quite confused, even though this Li Yunmu’s combat strength is quite formidable, but when all is said and done, he’s just a single person. Whether he will be able to continue growing at this pace is still unknown. Logically, given his status, why would our city lord have Lin Yuerou come meet him personally."

"He he, this is where you are wrong, my friend. Just Li Yunmu alone would naturally be unable to make our Heavenly Cloud City’s goddess come personally to receive him, but behind him stands the mysterious sect."

"This senior’s words are quite correct. Presently, this Li Yunmu is the only person from that hidden Li Sect who has appeared publicly. According to my reliable sources, these days, many powerful families and clans had tried to contact Li Yun and Li Feng, but there were no replies from them, so only this Li Yunmu can be reached."

"That’s right, during the past two days, I went to the dimensional battlefield hoping to see Li Yun and Li Feng’s fights, but they didn’t come. Their roots should be within our Heavenly Cloud City’s command, but they’re not showing themselves."

A group of Heavenly Cloud City’s fluxers were starting to discuss the secretive Li Sect once again. Right then, Lin Yuerou herself had come as her father’s representative, so now many people once more began to question whether this mysterious Li Sect truly existed.

Other than a mysterious sect with great reserves, who else could suddenly produce three newcomer geniuses? Moreover, Li Yunmu, who only had a cultivation of ordinary crystal layer, had advanced past the fifteenth level of Tower of Glory, which was no joke.

Everyone kept discussing this matter, but they stopped the moment they saw Lin Yueruo suddenly walking over to a fluxer whose entire body was covered in flux armor. When the crowd took a better look at that person, they cursed inwardly. That was ordinary crystal flux armor!

This was just too dazzling! When an ordinary crystal fluxer walked out of the passageway connecting to the fluxer association’s heavenly world, there was only one name in the onlookers’ hearts - Li Yunmu?! They didn’t know who exactly it was, but who else could it be?

This ordinary crystal fluxer was certainly Li Yunmu who had challenged the tower two days ago. Surprisingly, he hadn’t died inside and had come out alive. This was some big news!

Before long, the news of Li Yunmu coming out of the tower after two days immediately spread through all the areas under the control of Heavenly Cloud City. Furthermore, the word of him being personally received by the goddess of Heavenly Cloud City, Lin Yueruo, also spread like wildfire.

Instantly, everyone was knowledgeable about it. Those who were unaware of true facts sighed continuously at the influence of renown earned at the Tower of Glory. But the truly powerful clans understood what was happening behind the scenes.

Heavenly Cloud City’s city lord wanted to rope in the mysterious and powerful sect standing behind Li Yunmu. He even dispatched his treasured daughter to make the first move. Quite ambitious.

Lin Yueruo.

For a moment, countless people kept repeating this name. Its background wasn’t simple, for she was the most beloved of Heavenly Cloud City’s city lord, the goddess of countless people, and the disciple of Blue Cloud sect’s master. She was even related to the Chu family of Hidden Rain City, as well as being a twenty-year-old transcendence layer expert herself.

None of the previously mentioned epithets were easy to come by, but all of them had been acquired by this one woman, Lin Yuerou.

Heavenly Cloud City’s city lord had deliberately called her back from the Blue Cloud sect and entrusted her with the task of personally receiving Li Yunmu.

What did this signify then?

Many people couldn’t help but start pondering. They all had to accept that the tangled web of power—which was like a mass of undercurrents hidden beneath the waves—was extremely complicated.

Regardless of that, everyone was now clear on the fact that Li Yunmu hadn’t perished. He was still alive and had come out of the Tower of Glory after successfully clearing the fifteenth level.

As for why he had stayed within the tower for two days?

It might have been because he needed to recuperate from some serious injury he had received at one of the levels. Or it might have been to make use of the large amount of tower badges he had obtained. Whatever it was, this matter wasn’t anyone’s concern.

Everyone was by then focused on another thing. Since Li Yunmu had successfully come out alive from the Tower of Glory, then from this day onwards, Heavenly Cloud City was on the verge of gaining another formidable genius who had risen from out of nowhere.

If one was to think about it, with the amount of tower badges he had to have obtained after clearing the first fifteen levels, his strength must have increased greatly.

So exactly what kind of treasure weapon had he obtained within the Tower of Glory in the end? Was another sage level item about to appear in the world?

Many people and many powerful organizations, who had complicated relationships between themselves, agreed on one thing, to keep watch outside the residence of Heavenly Cloud City’s city lord.
