After thinking about the words Feng Yuxiang spoke to him, Yuan took a seat beside the pond and retrieved the ancient-rank technique Relentless Dragon Overwhelms the Nine Heavens.
"I am going to spend the rest of the day trying to comprehend this technique since it felt like I was getting close to understanding it when I stopped previously. You guys can do whatever." Yuan said to them before focusing on the technique.
Feng Yuxiang exchanged looks with the other two.
"Is it just me or does the Young Master feel a little different today?" Feng Yuxiang asked them.
"Just a little." Xiao Hua agreed.
"The Lord feels… A little more mature… Or at least the aura around him." Lan Yingying said.
"Let's just hope it doesn't mean anything bad." Feng Yuxiang sighed.
A few hours later, Yuan stood up and took a deep breath.
He then positioned himself that made it seem like he was prepared to throw a fist.
Yuan closed his eyes, and after a moment of silence, he snapped them open and released his fist, sending a powerful wave of spiritual energy that was shaped like a dragon towards the pond.
The entire ground shook as the pond was immediately erased from existence— the water and all, leaving a huge crater behind.
Yuan was left speechless by the destructive nature of the technique that erased an entire pond.
Fortunately for them, there were no living creatures within the pond.
\u003cYou have learned Relentless Dragon Overwhelms the Nine Heavens\u003e
"Heavens… Young Master, where did you learn such a powerful technique?" Feng Yuxiang asked him afterward.
"The Dragon Temple," he said.
"Such a powerful strength, it must be Divine-rank or above."
"Yes, it's an Ancient-rank technique."
Yuan looked at the sky that was getting dark and said, "I am going to leave now. It might be some time before I return since it'll be a little busy for me. Also, you don't have to wait for me. If you want to do something, just go ahead and do it without me."
"Yingying, you wanted to look around the Lower Heavens, right? You can have Feng Feng and Xiao Hua take you around."
"I want to explore it with you…" Lan Yingying said.
"It's okay, the Nine Heavens is a vast universe. We'll be able to explore it together plenty when I am able to play more."
"If it's your wish…" Lan Yingying nodded.
"Then with that settled, I will see you guys later."
"See you later, Young Master."
"Stay safe, Brother Yuan."
After saying their goodbyes, Yuan logged out of the game and returned to practicing his movement technique in the real world whilst his servants began exploring the Lower Heavens without him, though it was mostly for Lan Yingying.
As much as he wanted to play Cultivation Online, there were simply too many things for him to do in the real world.
Once things calm down, he will return and fully explores the Nine Heavens.
"Yuan, you know the entire world is looking for you right now, right?" Meixiu said to him during his break from practicing the movement technique.
"Unless I reveal myself, I don't think anybody will be able to find me."
"I guess, but there are also people looking for me since they think that by finding me, they'll find you, which is true."
"The only people who know of your identity and location are the Yu Family, Doctor Wang and Wang Xiuying, Xia Jingyi, and Chairman Zhao— And I guess the agency that was hired by the Yu Family," Yuan said.
"This might become a little troublesome, especially since there are some people who we definitely cannot trust to keep your identity hidden. What do you want to do, Meixiu? Do you want to move out? It'll become problematic when our doors get flooded with people asking about Player Yuan. We have the funds to do so as well."
Meixiu pondered for a moment before speaking, "Where can we go, though?"
"Furthermore, even if they find me, they won't know that you're Player Yuan, so I think it would be fine."
"I still think it would be better for us to move once we find a good place."
"Yes, I agree. But for now, let's just see how things play out."
With that decided, Yuan and Meixiu proceeded to spend the next few days just improving their cultivation base.
During these few days, the Cultivations' Association had appointed a new Chairman, who made a public apology regarding the actions of the previous Chairman.
One can imagine why the new Chairman felt the need to apologize, as he didn't want the mysterious Player Yuan to hold a grudge against the Cultivators' Association because of the last Chairman, which would be a big blow to them even though Player Yuan was only a single individual.
Although Player Yuan was only a single individual, his influence inside Cultivation Online was comparable to multiple large companies combined, and nobody knows the true extent of his powers.
One might argue that being influential inside a video game isn't that important, but when one considers how much Cultivation Online currently affects the world, one would understand why people value Player Yuan so much.
Early in the morning, Meixiu received a message from Yu Rou that told her to make a call whenever she was available.
Meixiu then called Yu Rou the next moment since she was free.
"Did something happen?" Meixiu asked.
"Yes. I have decided to join a cultivation faction, so I will be leaving the Yu Family soon." Yu Rou said, dumbfounding Meixiu.
After all, she'd only told Yuan about her decision to leave the Yu Family during her visit.
"Y-You're leaving the Yu Family as well? Why?" Meixiu couldn't help but ask her.
"Well, for one, now that cultivation has become fully incorporated into our world, other talents won't be as valued. In fact, I haven't had to participate in any lessons for a long time now. This is probably my parents' way of telling me to give up on music and focus solely on cultivation."
"Furthermore, I don't think I can stop blaming myself for what happened to you and Brother Tian due to my affiliation with the Yu Family. Hopefully, leaving the Yu Family can relieve some of that guilt…" Yu Rou sighed.
