Even after more than a thousand years had passed, the place still hadn't changed at all.
It was still so solemn and imposing, revered by countless streams of immortals and gods like a monstrous river.
No one dared to disrespect it.
Since returning a few hundred years ago, Jiang Chi had been living here with Li Lijian and had not left.
For an existence like them, this was the best place to return to.
On the other day.
Jiang Chi sat with Li Lirian, he said, "Li Lirian, it's so good to have you by my side all these years, if I didn't have you in the first place, I probably wouldn't be here today."
"Husband, what nonsense are you talking about?" Lili said, "You have my company, don't I have your company?"
Husband and wife are supposed to be one and the same, so what's the point of all this talk?
She was puzzled.
Self-husband had always been a top man, had always been a good man.
Very good to him.
Over the years, she was also satisfied with Jiang's lack of companionship.
That was the longest confession of love ah.
It was really good enough that life had to be like this, so what more did she need to ask for.
She was already not pursuing anything else.
The heavenly realm was perfect, the earthly realm was perfect, and the human realm was even more devoid of any disturbance with Jiang lacking, the Great Tang State Master, personally in charge.
Everything was peaceful.
The sunset was infinitely better, just near dusk.
Jiang Chi hadn't made a breakthrough for a thousand years, and his cultivation was stagnant, making him feel restless.
This wasn't the life he wanted.
He wanted to leave.
But before he left, he wanted to say goodbye to Li Lirian, and there were some things he should make clear.
Jiang Xiao hesitated for a moment, but continued, "Li Li, there's something I haven't told you, actually..."
Before he could finish, Lili interrupted him, "Husband, are you leaving?"
Jiang lacked: "........"
He accosted and smiled, quite embarrassed, "Who did you hear that from, Lizzy?"
"Husband, does anyone else have to tell you that?"
Li Li Qiao said indifferently, "Your expression is enough to say it all, for so many years, you've actually wanted to tell me, but you never found the chance to do so, right?"
You know all that?
Jiang was stunned.
It also went silent, and he was a bit startled by Li Li's words, and he understood the meaning of Li Li's words.
He might have done it too obviously all these years.
Jiang Chi no longer concealed anything.
Instead, he explained to Li Lili, "Li Lili, you also know that I'm not from this world, I'm an immortal, and I have no way to break through by continuing to stay in this world.
He had chosen to practice immortality after all.
This path of no return.
He knew it was risky, and at the same time an extremely attractive path.
But he had boarded this boat early on, and now he couldn't get off long ago.
Li Lili asked hopefully, "Husband, then can you take me away with you, I don't want to be separated from you, I want to be with you even at the ends of the earth."
Even if you know it's dangerous.
Jiang Ji shook his head and sighed, "Lili, I'm not sure I can bring you safely away from here, I'm afraid..."
He had experienced the terrors of space-time power.
If it wasn't for the protection of the Vajra Bracelets, the original Huang Rong might not even have a remnant soul left.
He, on the other hand, might have died a thousand million times.
Bringing Li Liqian away from the Great Tang again, he also asked himself, unsure of facing this matter.
No one could tell if the Vajra Bracelets would shelter him, what if he didn't protect this time.
And what to do?
"When the time comes, I'm just afraid that Lili won't even be able to keep her broken soul."
He was in a dilemma.
What should he do on his own.
"Husband, can't you take me with you?"
Li Li Qiao said with a cryptic voice, "In all these years, have you no feelings for me at all?"
Hearing that, Jiang Qiao got a big headache.
He smiled bitterly and explained, "Lili, it's not that I don't want to take you away with me, it's just too dangerous for me to guarantee your safety.
Staying here, not to mention how strong your cultivation is, just His Majesty's side will look after you and won't let anything happen to you.
What's more, he's even pardoned you as a god..."
Before Jiang Guiao finished speaking, Li Lizhi interrupted once again, "Husband, no matter what you say I will not leave you, to go together.
Even if I have to die as a result, that's something I'm willing to do.
--at least I won't be sad that you're leaving, for so many years, I've long been inseparable from you."
How could Jiang Kou not have such thoughts.
If he were to be asked to see Li Lirian in danger with his own eyes, how could he be willing to do so.
"Li Lili, it's all my fault."
He pulled the person into his arms and hugged her tightly, his eyes also contained tears that couldn't be stopped from rolling out.
It was as if they were about to slip away at any moment.
Who says that a man's tears are not lightly shed?
It was only because he hadn't reached the place of sadness.
He was also frustrated, if he could just break through time and space, if he could force his way back to the Green Xuan Continent, he was confident that he could convince Huang Rong.
He was afraid.
What if he couldn't succeed.
Saying a thousand words, what would he do if that master of the Vajra Bracelets didn't protect Li Li at the critical moment?
These were things that had no score.
Although there had been more than a thousand years of companionship before that, the two of them had been warming up to each other for more than a thousand years, and instead they were still getting reluctant to leave.
But there was no way.
He did want to stay in this bird's nest forever and ever, but with his inability to acquire his origin in this world, he could clearly feel the expulsion of the world's will.
Or rather, a reminder and urging.
Constantly asking him to leave.
Because the world couldn't bear his attack.
It also couldn't bear his continued existence, but in the past, it had been fine because the world wanted to be promoted.
But this time it was different.
"Husband, I won't let you leave alone no matter what you say."
Li Lili said with a resolute attitude, "If you dare to leave quietly by yourself, I'll kill myself, it's better to have a long pain than a short one anyway."
Jiang Ji: "........"
He suddenly felt a headache.
This was something he hadn't expected and was out of his expectation.
Li Lili was so disgusted that he was leaving alone.
To think about it.
It was fine for him to leave alone, but to leave those who stayed behind to be sad and depressed alone.
"But if you leave, it's equally dangerous."
Jiang Qiao was incomparably bitter and said, "If I leave with Lili, God knows what will happen, I won't even be able to save her if there's danger, right?"
He didn't have that ability.
Even with his mid-immortal realm cultivation, he was still nothing when it came to this matter of crossing time and space.
It was really gone.
Lili said, "Even if I'm unfortunate enough to be killed then, it's my destiny to have this happen, I won't blame you."
"But I'll be sad, I'll be in pain, and I'll miss you."
Jiang Xiao sighed, "You should know that in my heart, I also love you, so I don't want you to be hurt at any point."
Li Li Qiu: "........"
He was clear.
Only for Li Liria to stay in this world was the safest thing for her.
Once he left with her, there might be all sorts of horrible accidents.
And how could he handle it?
It was helpless.
Jiang lacked the heart to hold it in.
The look was also a bit tense and silent.
Only after a long time had passed.
Only after a long time did Jiang Chi continued to persuade, "Lili, if you stay in this world, you still have your father and mother, brothers and sisters, and many good friends, and once you leave with me you'll have nothing."
"However, the days without you are still tasteless."
Li Lizhi shook her head and said, "Even if you have family and friends, it doesn't represent you.
Husband, you must know that the person I love is you."
Jiang Mo was bitter.
Looking so helpless, he actually wanted to tell Li Lili that traveling through time and space was no child's play, it was really dangerous.
If he wasn't careful, great horrors would occur.
It's hard to say.
But, who can tell the truth about love.
Even he doesn't understand it.
I'm in you and you're in me.
Maybe this is what love is all about?
"I don't care, you can't leave without me alone anyway."
Li Lili stubbornly said, "You and I are one husband and wife, you should take me with you, as the saying goes, marry the chicken and follow the dog, even if you are unfortunate and die, I don't care."
She had to follow.
She even dropped harsh words to prevent Jiang Xiao from leaving.
"Lili, have you thought about it?"
Jiang Xiao said heavily, "I have a treasure to protect me, but this treasure may not be able to protect you ah, it's not something I can control on my own, just in case..."
"There is no just in case."
Lili wistfully said, "Even if there were, I'd be willing and uncomplaining."
Never blame anyone.
Words had come to this point, so what could he continue to say.
A face full of bitterness.
And some cryptic looks.
Li Lili was dying to leave with her, but how could something like traveling through time and space be simple.
It wasn't a house call.
Nor is it a joke, nor is it child's play.
The slightest carelessness would be the end of the game.
He said, "Fool, if you die, if you are robbed, what will you call me, I'll be sad too."
"But if I do not go with you, I shall be as sad and sorrowful in this world as you are."
Lili said, "We will both be sad then, if I die I will be the only one sad, and if I get lucky and don't die, we will be able to stay together, and maybe I will be able to go with you to the same world you are in."
That seemed like a reasonable thing to say.
The logic was also right.
But Jiang Kou just felt weird, certain parts called out depressingly.
Was that really the case?
It is true that two people who are separated will miss each other, and it is also true that two people will be the ones who are affected by the separation.
Jiang Xiao eventually shook his head, "No, she's a fallacy, it's the fallacious reasoning at all."
At least he thought it was.
"Husband, even though you've confessed, I still don't want you to leave, so why don't you join up?"
Lili suddenly said, "By merging the heavenly dao of this world, you might be able to become a heavenly dao too."
"And then become an emotionless machine in general?"
That wasn't what he wanted.
The Word of God was just the Word of God after all, as if it were a supreme executive program, a piece of rule.
And he was not.
The Consolidated Heavenly Dao would eventually be influenced by it, just like that legendary Hongjun ancestor.
Didn't it end up becoming more and more ruthless.
Besides, this world was too low.
Even if he joined the Dao, it would be of no use, at best it would only allow him to break through to the next small realm.
At most, it would be the Human Immortal Realm Great Perfection.
Other than that it shouldn't be possible for anyone to break through further.
So for Jiang Chi, it was useless whether or not he joined the Heavenly Dao, only by leaving this place and going to a more advanced place would he have a chance to obtain more of the World Origin.
Then breakthrough with this.
That was the king's way, but now Li Lirian's thoughts were contrary to him.
Of course, one couldn't blame the other girl, after all, he loved himself.
So he was still quite happy in his heart, but he was just a little unsure of how to choose.
Now that he had confessed to Li Li, though he was clear that he had to return to the Qing Xuan Continent earlier.
But in reality, he simply couldn't leave properly if he didn't deal with Li Liria's matter.
Jiang Mo's heart moved and said condensedly, "Li Lili, how about this, let's..."
