Yun Meng Xin shook her head, “I don’t know, it’s the first time I’ve spoken to her.”

Although Yun Meng Xin was sure that the Sword Emperor had acted because of Ling Tian, she wasn’t certain what the main reason was.

“Oh…” Winter of That Year replied, then looked down as he said apologetically, “I’m sorry, I couldn’t properly protect this place, and allowed the Yan Huang Alliance to find it. I… I…”

Yun Meng Xin smiled, “It’s fine. If it wasn’t for you and Hundred Miles of Ice, the new city would have long since been discovered. I only feel eternal gratitude towards you both. For you to be able to protect the new city until today is already quite amazing, and I have no idea how to repay you… if the Ling Tian City is built, if you’re willing to stay, I’ll wholeheartedly welcome you both.”

The one who suffered the most from the new city being discovered was Yun Meng Xin. However, not being able to fulfill the promise made at the beginning of this endeavor, and being comforted by Yun Meng Xin, Winter of That Year felt incredibly guilty. He gripped his fists tightly together, then opened them as his expression became vicious and he said with great determination, “Big sister, don’t worry. Although the boss and I are quite weak, if the Yan Huang Alliance attacks again—even if we die tens of times—we’ll still stop them.”

He then scratched his head, feeling vexed as he said, “The boss left at such a bad time. If he was here… Ai, forget it. With Long Tian Yun coming here, even if the boss killed them all, Long Tian Yun would have come back.”

“Don’t worry, as long as Ling Tian comes back, everything will be fine,” Yun Meng Xin said as she smiled, her voice full of confidence. Hearing this, Winter of That Year paused for a second, then looked at Yun Meng Xin before a look of sadness briefly appeared in his eyes, then disappeared. He grinned, “Ling Tian, eh? I quite want to meet this legendary figure. Even the boss is quite interested in him.”


Bamboo Sea Wonderland:

After receiving the news from Li Xiao Xue, Chao Ying and Chao Xi realized how serious the situation had become and immediately left the game. They went to where Ling Tian and Tian Tian stayed and entered the hall. They saw Tian Tian holding a large bowl, drinking some soup she had made and looking rather lonely.

“Big sister Ying, big sister Xi!” seeing them come in, Tian Tian happily stood up, “Have you eaten lunch yet? I’ve got a lot of soup here; it’s very yummy!”

“We’ve already eaten,” Chao Ying replied. She looked at the time; it was already 2 pm. She walked over and asked, “Tian Tian, why are you only now eating lunch? Where’s master?”

“I finished making lunch ages ago, but I couldn’t wake big brother up from the game. I waited until now, but big brother still hasn’t come out, so I decided to eat first by myself,” Tian Tian replied. Normally, Ling Chen would come out from the game to eat at the same time every day, but occasionally, (because of some special circumstances such as important quests or fighting powerful Bosses) he wouldn’t be able to immediately leave the game at his normal time. As such, Tian Tian was unconcerned. Tian Tian knew that there was probably something important going on within the game, which was why Ling Chen couldn’t come out.

Chao Xi and Chao Ying looked at each other, then said to Tian Tian, “Tian Tian, you can continue to eat. We’ll go take a look.”

They went to Ling Chen and Tian Tian’s room, and saw Ling Chen peacefully lying on the bed, his game bracelet activated. Since the situation was so urgent, they needed to wake him up at once. They stood on his left and right and repeatedly called out to him; they told him about the danger the new city was in, but there was no reaction from him, nor did he exit the game.

After about 15 minutes, Tian Tian finished eating lunch and came over. Chao Xi and Chao Ying asked her worriedly, “Tian Tian, how long does master usually remain like this?”

“Umm…” Tian Tian thought about it seriously, “I’m not sure. Sometimes it’ll just be a bit longer, sometimes it will be a lot longer. The longest time... he ate breakfast and only came out at midnight. Big brother’s probably doing a very dangerous quest at the moment. Big brother said that for some quests if you leave halfway through, all of the progress would have been for naught. Big brother will probably be done and come out soon though.”

The new city was facing the Yan Huang Alliance! Moreover, the new city’s defensive capabilities were incredibly weak; let alone the Yan Huang Alliance, even a moderately-sized guild could destroy it. Their only hope was Ling Chen, who had decimated the 3 largest guilds in the East Ocean Continent. The Yan Huang Alliance could attack the new city at any time, and the new city drew closer to danger every second. If Ling Chen did not come by the time the Yan Huang Alliance began attacking, then the consequences would be unimaginable, and the situation would be beyond hope.

As such, they simply couldn’t wait.

“Tian Tian, today, you need to stay by master’s side. If master comes out, you need to tell him that the new city has been discovered by the Yan Huang Alliance and that he needs to immediately go and protect the new city!” Chao Ying said.

“Ah? I… I’ve got it.” Tian Tian nodded in confusion. Although she didn’t know what this ‘new city’ was, seeing how anxious Chao Ying and Chao Xi looked, she knew that something big had happened.


Ling Tian City:

How could the Fairies and Dwarves not notice the ruckus that the Yan Huang Alliance’s players had caused? When Yun Meng Xin returned, the 2 clans’ leaders immediately went up to her. Greenwood frowned as he asked seriously, “Have we been discovered?”

Yun Meng Xin nodded, “In the end, we were still discovered. Chief Dilo, how long will it take for the city to be completed if we work as fast as possible?”

“3 days! 3 days will be enough… Great Moon Goddesses, please don’t let anything happen to our new home,” Chief Dilo said emotionally. During these few months, he had sufficiently understood the situation in the Forgotten Continent, as well as the factions in the human world. Moreover; he also understood what the consequences of this new city being discovered were. All of the Dwarves were praying day and night for the new city not to be discovered. However, what they were most afraid of had already happened.

“3 days…” Yun Meng Xin repeated this in a low voice as she replied, “Chief Dilo, please do your best to calm all of our Dwarven friends down; don’t panic, no matter what. Put all of your efforts into completing the new city, and don’t worry about anything else.”

“I’ve got it! Don’t worry, we Dwarves have experienced so much and have suffered many hardships. How could we lose our composure over something small like this?” Chief Dilo said resolutely.

“We’re unable to interfere in the conflicts between you otherworlders. We’ll have to rely on you to deal with this crisis. All we Fairies can do is provide high-grade consumables,” Greenwood calmly said, “If there’s anything else we can do, let us know.”

Yun Meng Xin nodded, then gave a relaxed smile, “Chiefs, please don’t worry. Although we’re unable to borrow your strength, I’m certain we’ll be able to get through this crisis. After 3 days, the storm will have passed and the skies will be clear again. All of this is just a light drizzle to welcome the completion of the Ling Tian City.”

Although the Fairies were powerful, they were unable to participate in the defense of the city. The heavy responsibility of protecting the city fell on Yun Meng Xin. As such, no matter how worried she felt, she had to look relaxed and confident in front of the Fairy Clan and Dwarf Clan.

“That’s right, that’s right!” Chief Dilo became relaxed as well, as a look of gratitude and excitement appeared on his face, “I’m sure our Dwarf Clan’s great benefactor, little friend Ling Tian will definitely come. He even defeated the guardian god who has protected our Dwarf Clan for 10,000 years. I’m sure it will be incredibly easy for him to defeat these otherworld intruders.”

Greenwood laughed, nodding his agreement. He had personally witnessed Ling Chen’s power before.

Winter of That Year, who still felt quite guilty, lowered his head as he stood behind Yun Meng Xin, not daring to say anything. Hearing Dilo and Greenwood mention Ling Tian, as well as their praise towards him, his eyes flashed. After looking at Yun Meng Xin, his desire to meet Ling Tian increased even more.

This Ling Tian… what did he do to deserve the good graces of so many people?!

At that moment, Yun Meng Xin’s communication device rang out. Yun Meng Xin looked at it and immediately picked it up. Li Xiao Xue’s voice sounded out, “Meng Xin, there’s a piece of bad news.”

“What is it?” Yun Meng Xin’s heart tightened. At such a critical time, the last words she wanted to hear were ‘bad news’.

“Ling Tian is currently in the game. He’s been in there from early morning until now, but he hasn’t come out. I told my 2 little sisters to call him, but he hasn’t responded at all. Evidently, there are some special circumstances from which he can’t extricate himself. You know that Ling Tian has cut-off all communication within the game, so it’s impossible for us to communicate with him from inside,” Li Xiao Xue said solemnly as she spoke with a heavy expression.

“You’re saying…” every sentence Li Xiao Xue spoke, Yun Meng Xin’s heart felt a bit heavier.

“Currently, Tian Tian’s staying by Ling Tian’s side. If Ling Tian comes out from the game, Tian Tian will immediately tell him about the situation. However, I don’t know when Ling Tian will come out from the game, nor does anyone else. It could be immediately, or in 1 or 2 hours… or 1 day or 2 days… or even longer!”

Yun Meng Xin: “……”

After deeply sighing, Li Xiao Xue continued, “In this sort of situation, we can’t bet on the best-case scenario, which is Ling Tian coming out of the game as soon as possible. This is because we can’t afford to make such a bet! If we bet incorrectly, we will have wasted all of our blood, sweat and tears, and we will have destroyed the city that the 2 clans placed so much hope in! We must plan according to the worst-case scenario, which is that Ling Tian cannot make it at all.”

Hearing Li Xiao Xue’s words, Yun Meng Xin felt as if thunder was booming in her ears. The new city had been discovered by the Yan Huang Alliance and was faced with the threat of destruction. Yun Meng Xin had been worried, but she didn’t panic because she was completely confident that even against the Yan Huang Alliance, Ling Tian would be able to protect the new city. Ling Tian had become her mental support regarding the new city’s crisis; if Ling Tian really didn’t appear, this support would completely crumble.
