The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1346: Zhengming Main City
Amongst luxurious buildings, a woman riding a fiery phoenix flew through towardsZhengming Main City
“Sister Mu, where are you going?” After Xu Daofeng saw the Crown Phoenix King, he immediately came up to ask.
The golden noble phoenix was basically Mu Qingyi’s symbol in Divine Sect. Of Divine Sect’s young generation disciples, Mu Qingyi was just as stunning and eye-catching as her Crown Phoenix King.
“Some of my friends are here, so I’m going to the gate to wait for them.” Mu Qingyi said.
“It’s Chu Mu and them?” Xu Daofeng said as his eyes lit up.
Mu Qingyi nodded and asked, “Do you want to go together?”
“Of course, it’s been a while since I’ve seen them. I was just complaining that no one was here to mess around with. They came at just the right time.” Xu Daofeng laughed.
“Then let’s go.” Mu Qingyi smiled.
After so long, they were finally at Zhengming City.
Over there past years, Mu Qingyi kept quiet and meditated in Divine Sect. However, Divine Sect was an unfamiliar place after all. There were always times when she felt lonely, and Ye Qingzi spent most of her time concocting medicine.
Mu Qingyi indeed missed them. She had wanted to go back to New Moon Ground in a little bit. However, since they were already heading here and said they would arrive by today, Mu Qingyi’s mood had significantly improved.
“Sister Mu, your admirer is here.” Xu Daofeng glanced behind and laughed.
Mu Qingyi looked backward and noticed a man riding a Cloud Immortal Bird towards her and immediately furrowed her brows. Looking at Xu Daofeng, he said, “Let’s speed up.”
As she said this, her Crown Phoenix flapped its wings and suddenly sped up, leaving a streak of flames in the skies of Zhengming Main City.
Xu Daofeng quickly caught up to Mu Qingyi, and threw Cloud Immortal Bird that was following far behind.
“Am I that scary?” The man said with a helpless laugh as he watched Mu Qingyi fly away.
Zhengming Main City wasn’t massive. In fact, according to its rank, Zhengming Main City should be ten times larger.
However, the area it covered didn’t represent a city’s standing. At least Zhengming Main City was very strict on the members entering and exiting. They often rejected all soul pet trainers without a high enough rank without hesitation!
Wupan Continent’s Wupan Main City restricted the amount of people that entered daily. Around it were many small cities, many of which had people waiting in a line with a number. This line often had a few monthlong wait.
Yet, compared to Wupan Main City, Zhengming Main City looked even more imposing. It completely stopped normal people from entering the city because they were too weak. Zhengming Main City didn’t welcome weak people.
This rule had been around for a long time. There had never been a king who sympathized enough with the weak to take away this ruling. No matter how loud the protests were, the rules were maintained till today.
Zhengming Main City’s ruler wanted to tell everyone that, to enter the city, one would have to take out one’s strength.
If some cities could be described as gentle and amicable, Zhengming Main City was definitely imposing and overbearing!
In this world, many cities tried to be approachable and allowed everyone in. However, with its history, position, and cultural meaning, the powerful Zhengming Main City never lowered their attitude to do so. Only with this arrogant attitude could they show how hard it was to reach this far on the road of soul pet trainers. They could stand as elites in peace and gaze down upon all who couldn’t even enter the city.
“It’s a city that is very down-to-earth. And it makes sense- there’s no point for a world-renowned city capital to be polite.” Ye Wansheng looked at a large group of rejects and exclaimed.
Chu Mu’s attention fell on the guards. He noticed that the guards stopped weak people from entering beyond just filtering by their ranks. They first asked for their ages. then asked if they had any special honors, before testing their strength.
This meant that experts were welcomed by age. This city allowed the commander ranks to enter, but one had to be extremely young and meet the potential requirements here.
“Speaking of which, what rank do we have to be to enter with our age?” Pang Yue said worriedly.
She was afraid that Zhengming Main City’s requirements were too high for even her.
“The age rule is only for people under the dominator rank. You don’t have to worry.” Yu Bo interjected at this moment.
“Oh, that’s good.” Pang Yue let out a breath.
Dominator Rank and above could all enter this city freely without the guards even asking them a question.
Indeed, when everyone rode their soul pets to the gate, the guards let them through immediately. Everyone watching from the long snaking line behind them were all staring on enviously.
Just as they entered the city, the guards kindly reminded Chu Mu, “The city has rules. Those without special permission can’t summon soul pets to fly in the sky. No one can start battles outside of designated fighting grounds. Also, any soul pet above fifty meters tall cannot be summoned outside of battlegrounds or personal territory.”
Most cities had these rules. They weren’t heavily enforced though. One could often see people without permission flying through the sky. The second two rules also happened occasionally.
However, anyone entering Zhengming Main City would unwittingly put away their arrogance. No one could even estimate how many experts there were in this city. Thus, naturally, everyone followed these three rules to the best of their ability!
“Then my Empress Heavenly Thunder Snake can’t be summoned, what a shame.” Ye Wansheng acted sad as he spouted this cold joke.
Beings above fifty meters meant Chu Mu’s Little Hidden Dragon and Dead Dream would go beyond this standard.
Little Hidden Dragon could change its shape to any size. However, in battle, Little Hidden Dragon liked to become Empyrean Cyan Hidden Dragon’s form, around 100 meters long, since it benefitted its battle the most.
Dead Dream could also change its size however it wanted. When the hundred thousand fairy butterflies gathered around it, it was like a black cloud that covered the sky.
Outside of combat though, Dead Dream kept its body around 10 meters, keeping it more agile.
Normally, for soul pets that could change shape, Chu Mu left them outside, beside him. Mo Xie, Dead Dream, and Little Hidden Dragon were often on Chu Mu’s shoulders. They were either napping loudly or blinking their little eyes as they watched anything exciting happening around.
Mo Xie didn’t say much more. Chu Mu’s shoulder was her bed. Sometimes, Little Hidden Dragon would mischievously pull on Mo Xie’s leg, causing them to dart up and down Chu Mu.
In recent times, Dead Dream was taken over by Ning Maner. She always hugged Dead Dream to sleep. During the day, either Ning Maner caught Mo Xie to hug, or she would capture Little Hidden Dragon to hug. Anyhow, she needed something to keep closer to her body.
“Yi, that golden figure is so familiar.” Chao Lengchuan pointed at a radiant golden flame.
“Didn’t you say that no one can fly in the skies?” Ye Wansheng immediately caught a nearby guard to question.
The guard said, “That’s Divine Sect High Official Mu. Anyone in Divine Sect can fly in the city’s skies.”
“High Official Mu? Our Goddess Mu really is powerful, already taking on a High Official position!” Chao Lengchuan said with surprise.
High Official in Divine Sect was pretty high already. Mu Qingyi hadn’t been lazy these past years, and was much stronger than before.
“Isn’t the fellow beside her Xu Daofeng?” Ye Wansheng immediately recognized the person beside Mu Qingyi and started smiling.
As they spoke, Mu Qingyi and Xu Daofeng rode their soul pets down to welcome everyone with a wide smile.
“Female Supreme is here too? Mu Qingyi stared at Liu Binglan with some questioning.
Liu Binglan nodded towards her, signaling that she could use a different name now. There was no need to be this formal.
Mu Qingyi said hi to everyone. When her gaze fell on Chu Mu, she suddenly noticed that there was an absolute beauty aside Chu Mu. Her angel-like appearance caused even Mu Qingyi to be amazed.
Furthermore, she also noticed that the young girl was holding Chu Mu’s arm. This intimacy could be explained by many things.
“This is?” Mu Qingyi asked.
“You recognize her.” Chu Mu laughed.
Ning Maner said nothing and simply blinked at Mu Qingyi.
“I recognize her?” Mu Qingyi was confused. She definitely wouldn’t forget seeing such a beauty. Especially her pure and sacred aura, she felt that the only person comparable was Evil Good Queen Yu Suo. However, Yu Suo’s aura was something that everyone knew to be questionable. Yet, this young girl’s purity seemed to be real, a purity that stemmed from the depths of her soul.
Suddenly, Mu QIngyi remembered someone that was indeed somewhat similar.
After Mu Qingyi was framed, she lived in Chu Mu’s courtyard for a while. Other than Ye Qingzi, there was also a little cute girl that lived with Chu Mu. That little girl also had a similar aura that could invoke everyone’s affection.
“Ning Maner?” Mu Qingyi finally remembered.
Ning Maner smiled brilliantly and said, “Sister Mu finally remembered.”
Mu Qingyi’s surprise was even greater. Ning Maner truly changed a lot. She was a cute little girl before yet, in no time at all, she had transformed into a beautiful woman!
