Chapter 277 A Place Filled with “Freedom”
Luling City was one of the 17 big cities on Chongyang Star.
The surrounding 3,000-odd cities and villages were all under the jurisdiction of Luling City and they had countless citizens.
This power was much greater than the Emperor of Daozhou Star.
The controller of this authority was the Li Family of Luling, a colossus that had been passed down for more than 20,000 years.
Even among the 19 strongest family clans on Chongyang Star, the Li Family of Luling was ranked at the top.
The fundamental reason for their prosperity was that they firmly hugged the thigh of the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect.
As long as the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect wanted something, the Li Family of Luling would give them everything.
They could be said to be very obedient.
Moreover, they often sponsored the poor disciples of the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect, helping them buy the spiritual herbs and pills needed to cultivate.
They would even give weapons to some of the stronger ones.
Although most of these disciples were ordinary people, there were a few who had really achieved something.
Not only did these people become extremely powerful, but they also held some powerful positions in the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect.
As a result, the relationship between the Li Family of Luling and the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect became extremely close.
These people also knew how to repay kindness and often took care of the Li Family.
As long as they did not harm the sects resources, they would do their best to let the Li Family benefit.
Most importantly, the Li Family was not weak either.
The number of Golden Immortals had always been stable, staying at a number just above 30.
Although there were not many Limitless Golden Immortals, usually only one or two, the flow of experts had never stopped.
At their peak, they even had four Limitless Golden Immortals.

This also made the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect care for the Li Family of Luling very much and treat them as their trusted aides.
Once there were any benefits for the family clans, they basically wanted the Li Family of Luling to obtain them first.
Especially after that incident 8,000 years ago.
8,000 years ago, a young man who came from a poor background and could only cultivate with the help of the Li Family of Luling rose to prominence at an astonishing speed, stunning the entire Chongyang Star and even the entire Five Views Realm.
This young mans name was Wei Cheng.
He was the former Sect Master of the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect, the current Grand Elder, a Sage at the Myriad Techniques Return to One Realm, and a supreme existence in the Sixth Realm of the Immortal World.
From then on, the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sects relationship with the Li Family of Luling became even closer.
They could even be treated as one family.
This situation had reached its peak 7,000 years ago.
Li Fa, who came from the Li Family of Luling, entered the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect and displayed excellent aptitude.
Although Wei Cheng could not directly take in a disciple because of his status, he still brought Li Fa along and personally guided him.
If not for Li Fas unexpected death later on, causing Wei Chengs attitude towards the Li Family of Luling to gradually become colder, the current Li Family would probably have already secured their position as the number one family clan on Chongyang Star.
After Li Fa died, as the generation that supported Wei Cheng gradually died of old age, the relationship between the Li Family of Luling and the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect returned to its normal state.
But even so, the Li Family was still one of the families that the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect relied on and cared about the most.
Especially after Li Cheng and Li Wei broke through to the Limitless Golden Immortal realm, the Li Family of Luling became even more important.
After all, there were only 20 to 30 Limitless Golden Immortals in the entire Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect.
Moreover, these were two Limitless Golden Immortals who were only over 700 years old.
In the future, they had the potential to reach the Myriad Techniques Return to One Realm!
However, in the past ten years or so, the situation has been a little off.
The relationship between the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect and the Li Family of Luling suddenly became distant.
Even the people from the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect often caused trouble for the Li family.
There seemed to be some conflict between the two sides, but it was not too tense.
Only the Li Family of Luling knew why the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect was doing this.
In the Li Familys meeting hall.
The family head, Li Quan, sat at the head of the table.
He was an experienced Golden Immortal and also Li Cheng and Li Weis father.
He had extremely high prestige in the clan and his word was law.
There were six people sitting on both sides.
They were all Golden Immortals and were the heads of the Li Familys various departments.
“The Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect is pressing forward step by step.
Our days will be very difficult in the future.
What do you think” Li Quan frowned and said in a low voice, “If they dont get an answer from us about the Purple Sun Mystic Realm, I believe Wei Cheng wont give up.”
“Big Brother, what exactly is in the Purple Sun Mystic Realm thats worth their attention” The second branchs head, Li En, asked curiously, “Could it be an opportunity to break through to the Peak of Myriad Techniques Return to One Realm”
“How would I know Ive never been there either.” Li Quan smiled bitterly and said, “Ive also told you about the Purple Sun Mystic Realm.
20 years ago, a Sage suddenly came and looked for me.
He imprinted the information about the Purple Sun Mystic Realm in my mind and warned me to explore it myself, but I cant tell anyone.
Otherwise, he will destroy our Li Family.
“But who knew that the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect would obtain the news from somewhere and is now certain that our Li Family has information about the Purple Sun Mystic Realm They have been interrogating us for almost ten years.”
“Big Brother, why dont you explore it yourself” The head of the fourth branch, Li Qiang, asked in a low voice, “Since the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect is so concerned, there must be a huge opportunity inside.
Even if you cant become a Sage, you can still let Chenger or Weiler obtain a huge opportunity.
Theyre both Limitless Golden Immortals.
Perhaps they can directly become Sages”
As long as they become Sages, the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect wont dare to do anything to us at all.” The fifth branchs head, Li Tong, nodded and said, “Chongyang Star is still ruled by the strong.”
“But there hasnt been any news of Chenger and Weiler for a hundred years.” Li Feng, the third branch head, frowned and said, “The large flying shuttles that the various families and Immortal sects sent to follow them didnt return either.
Even if we want to find them now, we dont have any clues.”
“Sigh…” Li Quan sighed and said,” How could I not want to personally explore the Purple Sun Mystic Realm However, that place is far away from the Five Views Realm, separated by thousands of stars.
“All the teleportation arrays to the Five Views Realm are controlled by the three Immortal Sects.
With my Golden Immortal cultivation, it will take at least 200 years for me to drive an ordinary flying shuttle over.
Theres not enough time.”
I really dont know what that mysterious Sage wanted with me back then.
In just a dozen years, he caused our Li Family to be in such a state.
What is his goal!”
“Big Brother, why dont we directly give the information about the Purple Sun Mystic Realm to the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect” Li En persuaded.
“With the information about the Purple Sun Mystic Realm in exchange for the protection of the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect, I dont think that mysterious Sage will dare to directly become enemies with the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect.”
“But will the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect become enemies with a Sage for us” Li Quan glanced at his second brother and sneered.
“Thats a Venerable Sage who can destroy our Li Family with a single breath.
Now that we have the information about the Purple Sun Mystic Realm, Wei Cheng will not kill us as long as he wants to obtain it.
Moreover, our Li family has followed the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect for more than 10,000 years.
If he really attacks, it wont be good for their reputation.
In the face of the pressure of the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect, we might still have a way out.
At the very least, before Wei Chengs lifespan is up, he wont be too crazy.
But if we were to face that mysterious Sage, that might not be the case.
Do you understand!”
As soon as these words were spoken, the entire meeting hall fell silent.
Everyone looked at each other and saw the despair in each others eyes.
Li Quan had already analyzed the situation very clearly.
The Li Family only had one choice now, and that was to resist.
He wanted to find a way to break through before Wei Chengs lifespan ended.
Of course, if they were lucky and Li Cheng or Li Wei broke through to the Myriad Techniques Return to One Realm and became Sages, all the crises would no longer be crises.
Bang! Bang! Bang! At this moment, there was a knock on the door of the meeting hall, breaking the dead silence.
However, this sudden knock on the door immediately aroused everyones anger, and it was about to become an outlet for their emotions.
The meeting hall was an important place of the family and was not to be disturbed.
“Old Master, Young Master and Young Miss are back!” The old butlers voice came from outside.
The anger in the hearts of these people instantly disappeared.
Li Cheng and Li Wei were back!
“Quick, bring me to see them!” Li Quan jumped out of his seat excitedly and rushed out of the door in an instant, pulling the old butler out.
The others hurriedly followed.
To the current Li family, Li Cheng and Li Wei could be said to be their final strand of straw.
Cui Heng did not go to the Li Family with Li Cheng and Li Wei.
Instead, he brought Pei Qingshu and Hui Shi around Luling City to observe the customs here.
To him, this was also exploring the unknown.
The overall layout of Luling City was a typical ancient city, but it was countless times larger.
Its humanistic state was also different from Daozhou Star.
As there was no national government, there were no local administrative officials.
The nominally governing families and sects also rarely exercised their jurisdiction.
Therefore, the people here had a lot of “freedom”.
It could basically be understood that other than things that went against the laws of nature and could not be done openly, everything else was left to the people.
There were almost no rules or etiquette here.
Everything was up to the individual.
However, in Cui Hengs opinion, this freedom was actually a form of chaos.
Unlimited freedom would gradually give birth to beastly nature and gradually destroy the humanity in people.
“Qingshu, youve managed commoners before.
Whats your evaluation of this situation” Cui Heng pointed at the chaotic street in front of him and asked Pei Qingshu.
“The people here are more beastly than human.
Theyre just a group of high-level monkeys.” Pei Qingshu shook his head gently and said, “From Li Cheng and Li Weis situation, it seems that the large family clans still have rules and laws.
Its just that ordinary people dont.”
“In other words, the management method here doesnt treat ordinary people as humans.” Hui Shi nodded.
“The families and Immortal sects here are reallyherding all living beings.
Hmm Sir, something seems to have happened ahead…”
As soon as he finished speaking, there was a commotion ahead.
Immediately after, the commoners who had collapsed on the road and were drinking wine all jolted up and knelt in front of them.
They kowtowed respectfully and shouted in unison.
“Welcome, Immortal Master of the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect!”
“Welcome, Immortal Master of the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect!”
