In order to train them, Gu Xijiu had traveled to many places with them to immerse them in different cultures and practices. Traveling thousands of miles was better than reading thousands of books. She believed that these excursions would help Fan Qianshi as he certainly did not have a problem retaining any theoretical knowledge. What he really needed was practical training.
Gu Xijiu was a responsible master. She needed to teach him everything she knew before her final moment came so that he could properly succeed in her role.
Fan Qianshi did not disappoint her. He understood everything that she taught him very quickly. It was even easier when she taught him kung fu.Throughout the years, all three of them had been to many different worlds. Gu Xijiu only hoped that the exposure could help Fan Qianshi and Wu Qianyan become better.
In order to maintain her remaining spiritual power, she would visit the glacier once every six months to a year. The power of the Candle Dragon’s egg still remained in her body; thus, it shielded her from the extreme cold.
However, every time she visited, the duration of her stay had to be extended. Her condition had worsened over time, so it gradually became more difficult for her to feel the flow of spiritual power in her body. The recovery of her kung fu became just as difficult, too.
Occasionally, she would bump into Di Fuyi during her extensive travels, but she would always take another path to avoid him. She decided not to bother him anymore since he was unwilling to become her disciple.
Thus far, she had not told anyone that he was her disciple. They were the only ones who knew. She never took advantage of the spell to control him to do things that were against his will. They only bumped into each other a handful of times in the past 20 years, but they never talked. They had not even taken a proper look at one another.
Meanwhile, back in the Monster Kingdom, it was safe to say that the punishment inflicted on their leader had served its purpose. Every citizen adhered to the laws that were in place, thus pushing the kingdom into a stable phase of development.
The Monster Kingdom led by example, so all the other kingdoms adopted their method and applied it to their own societies. Needless to say, most leaders were also well aware about Tian Mowen’s presence and his help in progressing the kingdom. Therefore, all of them became desperate to have the Celestial Officer come over to help.
Sooner or later, Tian Mowen’s name as the Celestial Officer became widespread in all six worlds. After punishing the Monster King, Tian Mowen had left the Monster Kingdom for good. When he made his appearance again after some time, he already became the Great Sorcerer of the Celestial Kingdom.With the support of the Emperor Immortal, he then began a series of reformations in the Celestial Kingdom as well.
The Emperor Immortal was a capable man with a soft heart. The people around him always swayed his decisions. Sometimes, he did not even have the heart to punish his officials. Even when a great crime was committed, he would easily change his mind about the punishment when someone started crying and begging for mercy. Eventually, most death penalties would simply be replaced with simple punishments.
Thus, the constitution became negligible. Many officials still violated the law, even with full knowledge of it. Both civil and military officers had their little circles of accomplices, each with their own plans to overthrow the government. The respect that they had for the Emperor Immortal was only superficial, as they never truly looked up to him.
In order to protect their own interests, the civil and military officers would form gangs to fight against one another, sending the government into a hot mess of chaos with no unity whatsoever.The common people were just as chaotic, like their own government.
The Emperor Immortal knew that the chaos was partly his fault. As soon as he heard about Tian Mowen, he personally went to the Lower Bound to invite him over to the Celestial Kingdom. Surprisingly, the man agreed to follow him.
During his first year, Tian Mowen barely did anything. He casually strolled around the Celestial Kingdom almost every day, as if enjoying his retirement. He managed to steer clear from getting any enemies, mostly due to his good looks. Being knowledgeable was also an advantage, so he soon became friends with many celestial beings.
