Chapter 60: A magnificent palace and a majestic garden. When the stream of Mental Energy entered Guo Luo's chest her eyes glazed over and the trembling from the Demon God's Gate quickly increased in intensity. After the entire stream of energy entered Guo Luo's body, her body started releasing a nearly transparent, multi-colored mist. The mist started gathering above her body, slowly taking the shape of a palace. The palace consisted of one large, circle shaped building in the center, a large spire decorating the middle of it, and two smaller, square shaped buildings, one on each side of the center building. Each building was covered in a large amount of windows and had a single magnificent, arch shaped entrance. The palace was made out of a strange type of stone that seemed to continually change color, turning from pink to purple, from purple to gold, from gold to light blue, and from light blue to light yellow in just a short few seconds. The palace released an ancient aura and was surrounded by nine large towers, each one reaching towards the clouds. Eight of the large towers were a dim white in color, but one of the towers was the same as the palace itself, continuously changing color. When the palace was fully formed, Yao Jun also felt something from his Demon God's Gate. Black mist started seeping out from his body, quickly gathering in the air above him. Where Guo Luo's mist took on the shape of a magnificent palace, his own mist took the shape of a majestic garden. The garden looked the same as the inside of the Demon God's Gate, a large forest surrounded by a myriad of mountains. At the center of the forest stood a large, black tree with verdant green leaves. The tree towered above all the other trees, reaching almost 100 meters in height. Even through this mist, Yao Jun was still able to feel the ancient aura that the tree was releasing. After the mist around Guo Luo took the shape of a palace, a surge of energy quickly gathered around her body, seeping into her body. When the energy entered her body, Yao Jun noticed that her cultivation level was quickly rising, swiftly reaching the 1st Mortal Earth. After her cultivation level reached the early stage of the 1st Mortal Earth, it stopped rising. But the energy that surrounded her body did not vanish, but seeped into her skin instead. After the energy seeped into her skin, the smaller scars that covered her face started to slowly vanish, even the scars on her hand were starting do disappear. But what caught Yao Jun's attention was her eyes and hair. Her eyes used to be a deep black, but quickly turned a nearly transparent pink after the energy gathered in her eyes. Her once brown hair turned into a mixture of gold, purple, and pink, looking exceedingly charming and mysterious. While Yao Jun was stunned by these changes, the ancient and dreary voice that he once heard when he himself broke through to the 1st Mortal Earth rang out from his Demon God's Gate once more. “The god of illusions walks this earth once more, to turn all creation into naught but a fading dream.” After the voice spoke these words, the black mist around Yao Jun quickly receded back into his body, the mist and energy around Guo Luo also swiftly seeping into her chest. After the pink mist and energy entered Guo Luo's body, the changes that had happened to her body did not recede, much like how Yao Jun's body changed after he reached the 1st Mortal Earth. After a short moment of silence, Guo Luo's eyes regained their clarity. Once her eyes regained their clarity, she couldn't help but look at herself with shock. After she spent a short moment looking at herself, she seemed to have thought of something and waved her hand. When she waved her hand, another Guo Luo appeared next to her, but this Guo Luo did not look like the current her, but the old her. Even Yao Jun was slightly shocked at this second Guo Luo. She looked completely lifelike and real, once he moved closer, he noticed that she even smelled the same as the real Guo Luo. Yao Jun couldn't help but reach out with his arm, but once he made contact with her head, his arm passed right through, this second Guo Luo was clearly an illusion. “Did you learn anything about your power?” Yao Jun quickly collected his thoughts and turned to the real Guo Luo as he asked. When he first awakened his Demon God's Gate, some information about how to use his power flowed into his brain. Since his Demon God's Gate said that the illusion god walked this world again, Guo Luo's power was clearly not something as simple as just creating some illusions, but was the same as his Demon God's Gate, the Illusion God's Gate. “Ah, a pleasantly soothing voice called my power the Illusion God's Gate and told me a bit about it's origin and how to use it. It also told me that the Demon God's Gate was already awakened, is that you?” Guo Luo quickly gathered her thoughts and responded to Yao Jun. The voice had told her about the origins of her power, and how to best use it. She was pleasantly surprised when she heard that she could now create illusions that were the size of humans, whereas she could previously only create illusions that were the size of her arm. “Yeah, my power is called the Demon God's Gate.” Yao Jun nodded his head to her words, but the corners of his mouth couldn't help but twitch a little. The voice from her Illusion God's Gate told her about the origins of her power and how to use it, but the voice from his own Demon God's Gate had only talked to Yao Jun twice. Once to proclaim it's own birth, and then again to proclaim the Illusion God's birth. What's with this difference in treatment? At the same time, he also speculated that where his Demon God's Gate could absorb Demonic beasts, the Illusion God's Gate seemed to absorb Mental Energy. “You should take a look at yourself first.” Yao Jun took out a small, handheld mirror from his interspatial ring as he spoke, handing it to Guo Luo. Guo Luo took the mirror and quickly inspected herself. She let out a surprised yelp when she saw that her eyes had turned a transparent pink and that her hair had turned a mixture of colors. She also took her fingers and ran them along her face, touching the places where she once had scars. Seeing that the scars were truly gone, she couldn't help but let out a sweet smile. No matter how bad her situation, every girl cared about her looks. “What are we going to do now?” After spending some time to check out her own appearance, Guo Luo dismissed the illusion of herself and handed the mirror back to Yao Jun. She was going to follow Yao Jun wherever he went, so she obviously did not care where they went. “I need to find information about the different types of Demonic beasts that live on this continent, so I intend to check the nearby cities and towns if they have any information.” Yao Jun had already made up his mind. He was not content with just absorbing any Demonic beast he found, he preferred quality over quantity. He did not want an army of Demonic beasts, he wanted to only have a few, but with each one having the strength of an army. He wanted more information about the different Demonic beasts on this continent, this way he could choose which he wanted ahead of time. Guo Luo would of course not have any objections, so they decided that they might as well just leave immediately. Whether or not the people of this town would use the chance they had given them to lead a better life was out of their control, only the townspeople themselves could control that. Stepping out of the large hall, Yao Jun summoned Little Gray and hopped onto his back. He grabbed onto Guo Luo's hand and pulled her onto Little Gray's back and indicated which direction Little Gray should fly in. while Guo Luo was looking at the surroundings while they were flying, Yao Jun was thinking about something in silence. Sword Empyrean Heng Jiang told Yao Jun that the God Gate powers were born when the universe was born, so Yao Jun assumed that they should be rather rare. But including himself, Yao Jun had already seen three of these God Gates. His own Demon God's Gate, Guo Luo's Illusion God Gate, and Yun Yantian's Sword God's Gate. Were the God Gates more common than Yao Jun first thought, or was there something else that caused so many God Gates to gather on this planet?
