Chapter 634: Chapter 634 – Undercover
The jade-colored inheritance stone landed in his hand and gave off a warm unique feeling. Bai An held the inheritance stone and used his magic power to absorb all the information within it without any hesitation.
Following that, bits and pieces of information began to sink into his mind. Scenes began to appear one after another. There were fragmented scenes from the past. Among the many images, there was a figure that Bai An was very familiar with. It was a figure that wasn’t very tall and looked a little old.
Bai An’s heart was somewhat moved looking at this person before him. All of his movements stopped, and his mood could not help but fluctuate. The figure before him was none other than his father, the previous family leader of the Bai family.
Unlike Bai An, Bai An’s father, as the previous Bai Family Leader, wasn’t as tall and straight as people thought. Instead, he looked very ordinary. He was only in his early forties back then, wasn’t too old even among mortals. He was still at a healthy age, not to mention as a cultivator.
However, his face appeared particularly haggard in the picture, carrying a strong trace of time, and his body appeared stooped. Bai An could not help but be moved looking at his appearance. A complex, inexplicable feeling surged in his heart.
His father might not be very powerful. His cultivation at the spirit transformation level was weak, didn’t look heroic. However, even so, he was still the best father in Bai An’s heart.
Bai An’s throat choked for a moment when he saw his father’s appearance again after so many years, then he was silent for a long time. However, the scene in the picture continued.
At the beginning of the scene, Bai An’s father was in a secret area, talking with a group of people, “I can bring you what you want, but you must let the rest of the people in this city go.” In the scene, Bai An’s father said calmly as he faced the group of uninvited guests before him.
Then, the group of people opposite him agreed to his conditions. Bai An’s father led the group of people to the depths of the mountain and arrived at a secret area.
It was an unimaginable place. The surroundings were filled with the aura of Gods and demons. A terrifying aura spread in all directions, making people feel a sense of fear and terror.

Even Bai An couldn’t help but frown at the scene, feeling a sense of unease. The scene was too terrifying, like the burial ground of Gods and demons. The aura hidden within it made Bai An even tremble in fear.
With Bai An’s father’s cultivation level, how did he know about this place back then? Instinctively, Bai An felt that something was wrong. At this moment, he suddenly realized that his father was not as simple as he had imagined.
The scene that followed gradually became blurry. Many figures appeared and then disappeared intermittently. It seemed that the scene inside the inheritance stone was not complete. It did not fully reconstruct what had happened back then.
Nonetheless, the scenes before Bai An was sufficient. Bai An saw his father’s death scene through this information. It was in a dangerous place, where Bai An’s father had silently fallen forever. The ones who had killed him were none other than the group of people who had forced him to come here. The symbol of the Eternal Dynasty could be seen on their bodies.
“It doesn’t matter if I die, Little An. I only hope that you can be safe…” Bai An’s father was still praying at the end of his life.
All the blood in his body had been drained, used as a sacrifice to the unknown existence in the area before him. At the end of his life, he was also using the power of his bloodline to transmit some of his legacy information.
Bai An was familiar with this scene. Back when he was still a child, he had received news of his father’s death overnight and the legacy that his father had passed on at the cost of his life.
He finally knew the truth behind his father’s death and understood everything now. He looked at the scene before him and couldn’t help but clench his fists. His emotions gradually fluctuated, and he felt an inexplicable throbbing.
“It looks like you’ve already believed the story…” Yiu Ruo looked at Bai An’s expression and couldn’t help but sigh.
“Where did you obtain this inheritance stone from?” Bai An was silent for a long time before finally turning around and looking at Yiu Ruo beside him.
He was very curious. Back then, Bai An was still a child when this incident happened. Yiu Ruo’s age was similar to his, so she should have been a child as well.
‘If that was the case, then why did she obtain this inheritance stone, and how did she know the relationship between this inheritance stone and I? Also, who was the one who left this inheritance stone behind?’ All sorts of doubts lingered in Bai An’s mind, and he urgently needed some explanation.
Unfortunately, You Ruo did not intend to explain to him. Of course, this was not because she was unwilling, “I don’t know.”
Yiu Rou looked at the puzzled Bai An, then sighed deeply and said softly, “I know that you must have a lot of doubts in your heart right now. In fact, I’m the same. As for how did I know that this is your father, that was purely based on a hunch.” She met Bai An’s gaze and calmly said, “I can know things that ordinary people don’t know with my abilities and channels. So, I will oppose my father and reject his arrangements. Then, I will look for you.”
“What do you mean?” Hearing Yiu Ruo’s words, Bai An frowned as he suddenly had a unique feeling in his heart, “You knew about today’s matter beforehand?”
“No, I’m not sure.” Yiu Ruo shook her head and said softly, “I don’t know what will happen in the future. It’s just that my feeling tells me that you can help me leave the Zhou family. So, I finally chose you. That’s all.”
“Sounds good.” Bai An stared coldly at Yiu Ruo before him, his gaze carrying a sense of scrutiny.
He did not feel too good about Yiu Ruo from the bottom of his heart. Before this, he would not have agreed to her request and come here to help if it were not for the news of his father.
“I have already done what you asked me to do.” Bai An looked at Yiu Ruo, and after a moment of silence, he finally said, “We are even.”
“I understand.” Yiu Ruo smiled. Her expression was still the same as before and did not change because of Bai An’s attitude.
However, if one looked carefully, one could see that her gaze was fixed on Bai An. To be precise, her gaze was fixed on that ancient sword. Bai An naturally also noticed this, so he left this place.
Several days had passed since he left the Zhou family. During this period, news about him spread like wildfire across various regions. He might be targeted in the future if he didn’t hide.
After all, those people didn’t make a move right now, most likely because they were afraid of the ancient sword’s power. However, after a while, when those people realized that Bai An could not activate the ancient sword on his own, thoughts that they shouldn’t have would eventually arise in their hearts again. It would be another pile of trouble by then.
Bai An directly left this place to avoid trouble, preparing to find a place to hide. This sort of thing wasn’t hard for him. He had done it many times in the past and was very skilled.
People in the surroundings watched Bai An at all times, wanting to know his whereabouts, including powerhouses of the Spirit Transformation Level. However, even these powerhouses lost him in the end. They didn’t manage to catch up to Bai An as he ran away. This was also Bai An’s ability.
Time flew, and soon, another half a month passed. News about Bai An constantly circulated across various regions during this half a month. Many cultivators in the middle-earth region knew Bai An’s name.
The Zhou family was not a small force. Like the Eternal Dynasty, the Zhou family was also a Holy Land derived from the inheritance of a Heavenly Venerate. It was extremely powerful at its peak.
Although its power had long been weakened now, with the legacy left behind by its ancestors and the Earth Heavenly Weapon, the ancient Sky Mirror, it was also extremely powerful, enough to suppress an entire region. It was the most powerful force under the top forces such as the Eternal Dynasty. Any movement within such a huge force would be magnified by the people around them, trying to search for clues.
The story of what happened in the Zhou family the other day was speedily spread. Within just half a month, all the cultivators in the Central Plains learned of the story, and many people’s eyes even lit up. The inheritance of an unknown Heavenly Venerate, the ancient sword that seemed to surpass the Earth Heavenly Weapon…
Each of these things was sufficient to create the foundation of a Holy Land. Yet, the person who possessed these two things was only a tiny cultivator who hadn’t even reached the Spirit Transformation Stage.
Any ambitious person who heard this news couldn’t help but have some thoughts. A few people even started to make a move and ask about Bai An’s whereabouts.
Under such circumstances, Bai An completely hid and even took the initiative to blend into the small group of cultivators around him. He pretended to follow the crowd and even took the initiative to ask around for information about himself. No one would believe that he was Bai An based on how he acted.
Bai An indeed had ample experience. He had analyzed the situation clearly and even started to find out information about the Eternal Dynasty within just a short period. Since his father had died in the Eternal Dynasty, as the emperor’s son, he had to get back the blood debt no matter what.
However, the execution was still a big problem. The Eternal Dynasty was undoubtedly a huge force in the Central Plains. To put it bluntly, if Bai An didn’t have the ancient sword in his hand, he probably wouldn’t have the determination to take revenge on the Eternal Dynasty. After all, it was an extraordinary force that had the inheritance of several Heavenly Venerates. Its power was too mighty.
There was no Heavenly Venerate in the Eternal Dynasty up until now. However, there were many existences below the Heavenly Venerate level. It would be difficult for Bai An to take revenge under such circumstances, no matter how much confidence he had and how much he believed he could achieve in the future.
However, it would be different if he included the ancient sword in his hand. The ancient sword’s power was displayed in the Zhou family. It was a power above the Earth Heavenly Weapon and could be deemed invincible in the Central Plains once it was fully recovered.
With this divine weapon, Bai An only needed to cultivate to a certain level and suppress everything using the power of the ancient sword as the ancient sword master. No one would be able to defeat him as long as the Heavenly Venerate did not appear. The ancient sword had given Bai An enough confidence not to be despair.
After a few days of investigation, Bai An gradually had a deeper understanding of the Eternal Dynasty, and his emotions became heavier. The Eternal Dynasty was even more powerful than he had imagined. It could be deemed the top power in the Central Plains.
The Eternal Dynasty was a truly top-tier power. There were probably not many existences in the entire cultivation world that could match it, only a few at most. It was undoubtedly not an easy task to deal with such a colossus.
Bai An finally came up with a countermeasure after pondering for a long time. After half a year of painstaking planning, he successfully snuck into the Eternal Dynasty and even became a member of it with a brand new look.
Although most of the members of the Eternal Dynasty were descendants of the Eternal Heavenly Venerate, elites from the outside world could also join the Eternal Dynasty and become a member if they were outstanding enough. That was how Bai An entered the eternal dynasty.
Bai An began to live with a new face after sneaking into the Eternal Dynasty. He cultivated hard and cherished the opportunity in his hands. He performed like a new disciple who had just joined the Eternal Dynasty, working hard to improve. This performance made his cultivation base rise rapidly and, on the other hand, also made the people in the Eternal Dynasty admire him more.
His status changed very quickly within the Eternal dynasty. He became a new elite within the Eternal Dynasty and was viewed as a representative figure within the Eternal Dynasty’s generation.
This kind of situation was something Bai An had never thought of before. Although he had decided to blend into the Eternal Dynasty, he had never thought that the process would be so simple and easy. He easily muddled through and did not even get to use some of the preparations he made.
Now, he had become the seed elite in the Eternal Dynasty and was regarded by many as the new leader of the Eternal Dynasty. This kind of situation was not something he had expected.
