Chapter 223: Night Chat in the Dungeon
The only source of light—a lit torch—brightened the dark dungeon somewhat.
As Meng Chuan walked, he walked to the cell where his father was. Meng Dajiang—still fat—laid against the cell wall dispiritedly.
Meng Chuan grabbed the prison door and used his Quintessential Essence to cut open the lock. He pulled open the door, and calmly entered.
Meng Dajiang looked up and saw a familiar young figure walk in. He was stunned and couldn’t help but say, “Chuan’er.”
“Dad.” Meng Chuan sat cross-legged and looked at his father. “I’m here.”
Meng Dajiang had a complicated expression as he sighed. “Dad has embarrassed you.”
“It says in the letter that you colluded with the Skydemon Sect. There’s concrete evidence. They even said that you admitted it,” said Meng Chuan calmly. “But I don’t believe it.”
“Ha…” Meng Dajiang smiled and shook his head bitterly. “Who doesn’t have some silly moments in their life? Back then, I was filled with anger, so I took the wrong path. I thought that it wouldn’t affect humanity much if I leaked only some information.”
Meng Chuan looked at his father, neither angry nor vexed. He calmly asked, “Why were you angry back then?”
“Chuan’er,” Meng Dajiang stared at Meng Chuan, “in the past, I didn’t even dare tell you. Even though you’ve become a Great Solar Godfiend, it might still be too early to tell you. However, my crimes probably result in an execution. Thus, I’ll tell you everything.”
Meng Chuan frowned. He knew that his father had secrets! However, he refused to believe that his father’s secrets would make him collude with the Skydemon Sect.
“Your mom has always been alive,” said Meng Dajiang with a smile.
Mom… is still alive? Meng Chuan was stunned. He had come here today because of his father’s so-called ‘collusion’ with the Skydemon Sect. However, he received an unbelievable piece of news.
The gentle figure in his memory was still alive?
“Then… the tomb I pay my respects at?” Meng Chuan was stunned.
“It was all a cover-up. We told everyone that we failed to find her bones after she blocked the demons. That’s why we made a cenotaph,” said Meng Dajiang. “However, we lied to the world! Your mother is alive and well. Not only that, but your mother is also a powerful Godfiend! Her name is… Bai Nianyun!”
“Bai Nianyun?” Meng Chuan was alarmed. “Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s Grand Yin Holy Maiden, Bai Nianyun?”
Black Sand Grotto-Heaven had five Grand Yin Holy Maidens. All five were Marquis Godfiends. They hoped to become Regis Godfiends. After all, whoever became a Regis Godfiend would control the mysterious Grand Yin Holy Hall.
“Yes, Grand Yin Holy Maiden,” said Meng Dajiang. “Your mother has been a Grand Yin Holy Maiden since she was young. Grand Yin Holy Maidens have to follow many rules. She was ambitious and hardworking. She became a Godfiend and even reached the Great Solar realm. Only when she became a Great Solar Godfiend did she have the right to descend the mountain and travel. After being restrained for 30 years, your mother wanted to break free from the restraints her family clan had placed on her and roam the world freely.
“Therefore, she secretly came to our Great Zhou Dynasty. Here, she ended up meeting me.” Meng Dajiang had a sweet and forlorn smile on his face. “When we first met, I had just finished my military service.”
Meng Chuan listened carefully.
At Xiangshan Garden, a group of Godfiends gathered outside the dungeon. Suddenly, they saw a figure appear in the distance. It was a stocky man in purple robes. As he walked over, he exuded a terrifying might.ƒ𝑟e𝘦we𝑏n𝑜𝚟𝙚Ɩ. 𝒄𝚘𝐦
“Marquis.” All the Godfiends bowed respectfully. These Indestructible Godfiends instinctively felt fear and reverence when facing Marquis Gong Xu.
The man walked over calmly.
The news of Meng Chuan meeting his father in the dungeon reached him immediately! Ignoring the fact that it was late at night, Marquis Gong Xu immediately rushed over.
“Marquis, Senior Brother Meng is still in the dungeon, chatting with his father.”
“Marquis, do you wish to enter?” asked a Godfiend.
Marquis Gong Xu looked at the dungeon entrance and indifferently said, “Let Meng Chuan have a chat with his father.” He stood outside the dungeon and didn’t disturb the duo.
Inside the cell.
“That was the first time I discovered that your mother was a Godfiend.” Meng Dajiang smiled. “I was very shocked. Why would a Godfiend be willing to marry a mortal like me? Yet, your mother asked me with a giggle, ‘Dajiang, you are willing to marry me when I’m a mortal. Are you not willing to marry me when I’m a Godfiend?’
“Back then, I immediately answered, ‘Of course I’m willing.’ Your mother said, ‘Dajiang, it’s the same for me! I don’t care if you are a Godfiend or mortal. I’m willing to marry you, Meng Dajiang.’”
Meng Chuan listened carefully and saw the blissful look on his father’s face.
“What did I do to deserve marrying your mother?” said Meng Dajiang. “Back then, I swore that I’d make your mother happier with my life. Your mother also revealed her identity to me. She’s a descendant of Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s Bai family! The Bai family is a family clan stronger than a Regis Godfiend family clan; it’s one of the top family clans in the world,” said Meng Dajiang. “Bai Nianyun is also a Grand Yin Holy Maiden, and they are forbidden to marry anyone and have to maintain their virginity.
“However, your mother violated all these rules. Once she is exposed, the Bai family will lose face and punish her severely. Since she has violated Grand Yin Holy Hall’s rules, they will also punish her severely.” Meng Dajiang continued, “People from the Bai family may also vent their anger on mortals like our Meng family and I. That’s why I kept it a secret.
“Your mother had always planned to keep it a secret and hide in the Great Zhou Dynasty. She wanted our family of three to be together always.” Meng Dajiang looked at Meng Chuan. “However, when you were six years old, I was working for the family clan. Both you and Nianyun were with me when we encountered a demon invasion! There were demons everywhere as they frantically hunted down humans.
“At that time, your mother had two choices. One choice was to let the demons massacre the humans as she pretended to be a mortal to escape with us. The other choice was to use her Godfiend strength to kill those second Firmament demon monarchs and demon army, forcing them into a retreat. However, the cultivation system for Grand Yin Holy Maidens is unique. Once a Grand Yin Holy Maiden uses their strength, our Great Zhou Dynasty’s Earth Net will definitely realize that it was a Grand Yin Holy Maiden that had taken action. Black Sand Grotto-Heaven would then soon learn of it too.”
Meng Dajiang looked at Meng Chuan. “Your mother chose to save those people. In front of you, she pretended to resist the demons while we ran for our lives. But in reality, your mother swept through the demon army and killed the demon monarchs in the blink of an eye, causing them to flee in terror. That time, your mother saved over 100,000 people. Meng Dajiang said,” The word on the street was that a Godfiend had saved those people, but nobody knew the Godfiend’s name! That Godfiend was your mother.”
Meng Chuan listened silently.
“After exposing her strength, your mother had to return.” Meng Dajiang looked at Meng Chuan. “Your mother left me an Astral Spirit Herb to help you build your Godfiend foundation in the future. Your mother told me that she did not regret the eight years that we spent together. From then on, I’ve never met your mother again.”
Meng Dajiang looked at Meng Chuan. “Those eight years were the happiest time of my life. I understood that I was mortal and that I was too weak. If I were strong enough, even the Bai family wouldn’t dare to underestimate me. Your mother and I could be together openly. Therefore, I tried my best to become stronger! I did my best to become stronger, just for a chance to be with your mother again.”
