The ground was paved with pale green jade stones into different auspicious designs. The plaza was wreathed in a vibrant luminescence. The plaza bustled with people who dressed in a similar appearance.
Some people dressed in blue robes, some in green. Some were in white. The ones in blue and green were obviously of lower statuses. They had been following the people in white robes in one direction, seemingly well disciplined. Their behaviors were quiet and orderly.
Gu Xijiu maintained her usual appearance with her black robe and the obviously vile looking mask. When she landed, she was clearly an outstanding one. Immediately, she attracted many curious eyes.
Gu Xijiu could not care less about the attention. Except for the people in colored robes, there were children in different clothing which looked somewhat like a uniform. Some of these children were sweeping the floor. Others were feeding the birds in the square. All in all, the children were doing the chores, so they were clearly the servants.
The legends were true. In heaven, the spiritual power that one possessed was at least level nine. She could tell from their glistening aura that shone faintly, like a halo.
These children servants were obviously the lowest in the ranking, which was still about level nine. The people in blue and green were at level ten or so. The ones in green, however, were slightly better than the ones in blue.
The men in white robes, the ones that were leading the way, possessed a celestial aura that proved them to be at least level ten and above.
The mortals from the earth had to achieve a particular milestone to ascend to heaven, so anyone of spiritual power at level ten would be considered as one of the best. Social segregation of classes still existed. The recognition for spiritual power in heaven, however, might differ from Earth.
What were the standards in heaven? Did she belong in the middle or lower class?
As Gu Xijiu had just arrived, she was completely unsure of the standards. A young man in white robes approached her. “How can I address you?”
“As a passerby,” Gu Xijiu answered briefly.
The man in white was confused.
He sized Gu Xijiu with curious eyes but still could not figure out her origin. “Where are you from?”
The man in white frowned in bewilderment. “Your information is too general. There are so many people from Earth.” He then pointed at some of the blue and green men. “They have ascended from different parts of the Earth. There are hundreds of thousands of regions. Can you be more specific about the continent where you came from?”
She obviously did not know that there were hundreds of thousands of regions. The men in blue robes caught Gu Xijiu’s attention. These men were wearing similar blue robes as Long Siye after he survived the catastrophe. All the blue robes were of similar handicrafts, if not identical. The only difference to tell them apart was the embroidery pattern at the corner of their robes.
The men in blue and green were in a total of about a hundred and eighty people. Apparently, they had just arrived in heaven as well, as they looked somewhat excited. She took a quick glance at these people, but could not see Long Siye.
The young man was still waiting for an answer, so she answered him accordingly. He was obviously perplexed. “You do not seem like you have just ascended.”
“She found the Sky Bridging Tree. I was defeated, so I had to carry her here,” the five-colored bird told the man about their encounter. Surprisingly, it had not left.
The man in white took a look at the tail of the five-colored bird that was almost bald. “I got it,” he answered with a nod.
He turned to look at Gu Xijiu again. “I can see that you are a very capable person. Please proceed as you wish.” This time, he did not sound as arrogant as before.
The same situation had not happened for thousands of years.
It was normal to have people in heaven through proper ascension, but cases like Gu Xijiu were extremely rare.
The man was ready to leave, but Gu Xijiu had to find out more. “Mr. Immortal, do you have a minute? I want to ask you about a man.
