Who in this world could escape death?
No matter how much talent one possessed in this breathtaking world, in the end, their inevitable fate was to become a skeleton covered in sanguine ash. No amount of pride could overcome one’s inevitable fate of turning into yellow soil, and returning to the vast mountains and rivers!
Immortality was without a doubt the greatest desire of every living being. Unfortunately, ageless humans didn’t exist, and there was no such thing as an immortal emperor. Regardless of how mighty one might become, it was still impossible to escape the crutches of illness and death. Nobody was capable of living an eternal life in this world.
However, the legends of immortality had been passed down since ancient times.
Bodhidharma, Dugu Qiubai, Ximen Chuixue, Li Xunhuan, Shi Feixuan, Lang Fanyun, Pangban, and Qin Mengyao…
Each and every one of these historical names had been passed down since the beginning of time, almost as if these names were an ancient curse that continuously encouraged the later generation. It allowed the people to believe that immortality was not simply a foolish thought, and that some people could eventually reach that realm through hard work.
Only…. the flow of time was simply ruthless. As the years passed by, the legends of immortality were gradually erased along with the flow of time.
Silently and endlessly erased until the present, however… a miracle shall rise again!
On the night of the full moon, a Goddess known as Lan Nuo appeared, and she was about to cut off all familial ties on top of the Kunlun Vermilion Peak. She created a spatial distortion with martial arts, shocking every practitioners under the heaven, and the rumors of immortality heated up once more.
More than ten thousand people came to visit the Kunlun Mountain Range. It didn’t matter if it were the highly esteemed aristocrats or the lowly peddlers and commoners; they all came for the same purpose. That purpose was to witness a once in a lifetime miracle.
At last, the day of the full moon arrived. The moon was high above Kunlun, majestic and beautiful. Under the bright moonlight, as if being shrouded by a hazy veil, the sacred mountain was faintly discernible. It made the mountain range look like a fairyland.
Xiao Chen ⌈1⌋ was running like the wind under the moonlight. His entire body was covered in blood, and even his pitch-black long hair was stained. However, the sharp gaze on his handsome face was unyielding. A pair of pupils that shone as bright as a star transmitted his unwavering determination!
He was currently facing a life or death situation!
The Imperial Angel Zhao Lin Er vowed to exterminate him, and ten highly trained experts hastily surrounded him from all directions. The angel’s face was concealed by silk, the curves on her body figure were graceful. Her pupils were like the limpid autumn water, and she seemed so elegant even as she flew by with such speed. She was as agile as a fleeting light, and as graceful as a fairy.
Unable to escape, Xiao Chen rushed towards the direction of the Vermilion Peak!
Under the moonlight, vast amounts of people gathered near the Vermilion Peak. The figures of men filled the area, but despite there being over ten thousand individuals gathered at the moment, it was actually extremely quiet. Everyone’s attention was focused on the girl in the white dress who stood atop the Vermilion Peak.
At the peak of the mountain, Lan Nuo wore a snow-white dress, and her entire body was enveloped by moonlight. Her immortal body seemed as if it was emitting a faint yet pure and holy radiance. The white dress was brushed by the wind and she truly appeared as if she was a fairy that didn’t need to consume food like common mortals.
During this half month, she had attempted to split the space twice. However, she would take a step back each time before it succeeded.
If she took that single step, she would have entered the world of immortals!

But if she took that single step, this vast mortal world would slowly escape her reach forever, hence severing all of her bonds with this world!
It required great courage to cut off all her bonds! Once she took that step, what awaited her later in life might just be endless solitude.
It was hard to predict what might happen. It was better for immortals to feel no emotion!
She stood still from early in the morning up until now. All kinds of mortal scenes appeared in her mind, one after another. The moment to say goodbye to the mortal world finally arrived. A divine light suddenly erupted above the summit of the mountain and began to burn fiercely. The entire mountain summit was enveloped by layers upon layers of pure and holy radiance.
Lan Nuo’s soft and smooth skin looked so radiant and noble within the multicolored holy light. Under the watchful eyes of tens of thousands of people, she distorted the space and hardened her resolve to move forward.
At the final moment, she took a final glance at the mortal world. That fantasy and dreamlike moment, as well as the face of this immortal, had been carved into the hearts of the common people forever. Tens of thousands of people all shouted Lan Nuo’s name at the same time.
However, the orderly shouts immediately fell into disorder. Unexpectedly, they discovered two silhouettes running at high speed towards the top of the mountain summit at the same time Lan Nuo distorted the space!
Recorded in ancient calendar, Year 7316, one proud goddess, Lan Nuo, created spatial distortion with martial arts and left the mortal world. The Imperial Angel, Zhao Lin Er, was fortunate enough to accompany her to the world of immortals.
As for Xiao Chen, his name was not placed in any of the history books.
The instant the space was distorted, Xiao Chen was indeed extremely astonished!
He never thought such a day would come; he was actually going to enter the world of immortals like this. At this moment, he thought about many things. His family, friends… he would have to part with them forever. He was about to depart from this mortal world forever.
Fleeing for his life had unexpectedly led to this result. For many people, distorting the space and entering the world of immortals was an eternal glory. For Xiao Chen, however, he would rather abandon this opportunity. He would remember this mortal world for as long as he lived; father, mother… farewell! He silently departed from the mortal world.
At that time, however, Xiao Chen didn’t know that the Imperial Angel Zhao Lin Er also rushed straight into that distorted space.
