During the Ancient Zenith Civilization, legacy pearls were specializations of big sects.
Small sects simply had no way to make such a legacy pearl.
It was not just that the method of making them was a secret of the various sects.
The most important thing was that the materials to make one were very difficult to obtain.

This was because legacy pearls were not refined like weapons, but grew out of the soil.
The raw materials for legacy pearls could only be found in special treasure trees.

These treasure trees were hard to find, and once they bore fruit, they would quickly wither and die.
No one knew where to find it the next time around.

Therefore, legacy pearls became a kind of supreme treasure of large sects, and these legacy pearls were often in the hands of the sect leaders and sect masters of the large sects.

Usually, this sort of inheritance would be passed down from generation to generation.
It did not seem very useful, but when a sect completed the succession of the inheritance, and the sect did not have an outstanding disciple for that generation, a chosen one would be able to quickly absorb the power in the legacy pearl to grow to the top of the world.

Those large sects could prosper from generation to generation, passing down their inheritance for thousands or even tens of thousands of years.
It was impossible for them not to consider the lack of successors, and this was one of the trump cards they left behind.

Even in the Chus, after Chu Haoyue—a past top scorer in the college entrance examination—there hadn’t been anyone in the Chus who could compare to Chu Haoyue for a long time.
In a sense, this was a talent gap.

Normally, a legacy pearl contained the power of sect masters of at least several generations.
If one could tap into the power within these treasures, it would undoubtedly be priceless.

However, this required a special method.
Every sect was different.
If the pearl was lost, it would be very difficult for outsiders to obtain the power within it.

“However, as far as I know, every sect’s opening method is different.
Without the special opening method passed down from generation to generation, even if one obtained it, it wouldn’t be of much use,” Chu Yunfan said.

Tang Siyu’s pretty face revealed a look of surprise as if she hadn’t expected Chu Yunfan to know about it.

“That’s right.
After my mother’s ancestor obtained this legacy pearl, he used almost all of his clan’s strength to research it.
After paying a hefty price, he finally conquered the ruins of an Ancient Zenith Civilization and obtained some incomplete blueprints.
Relying on these incomplete blueprints, he was able to channel a portion of the cultivation strength within.
Although the efficiency wasn’t high, it was still a great breakthrough,” Tang Siyu said, “But it was at this time that the news leaked out.
My mother’s entire family was wiped out overnight, but my mother’s grandfather was able to escape with the pearl.
Later on, my mother married into the Tang family.
After my mother passed away, the pearl fell into my hands.”

“I see.” Only then did Chu Yunfan understand.

“In the past, I didn’t know why Jiang Lingxiao insisted on getting engaged to me.
Later on, I found out that the Jiangs must have found out about the existence of the legacy pearl from some unknown source.
However, they didn’t want to alert their enemies, so they relied on the marriage alliance to obtain it,” Tang Siyu said.

Her expression was calm as if she was talking about something that had nothing to do with her.
However, her grip on Chu Yunfan’s hand tightened ever so slightly.

“The person he originally wanted to marry wasn’t me, but my half-sister.
Later on, my sister died in the wilderness, so it was me instead.
I have doubts about the circumstances of my sister’s death.
It’s very likely that it has something to do with Jiang Lingxiao.”

Only then did Chu Yunfan realize that the matter of Jiang Lingxiao and Tang Siyu’s engagement actually involved such a complicated situation.
And what he had learned in the past few years was just the tip of the iceberg.

“Before my mother passed away, she told me that I wasn’t allowed to use the pearl.
She thought that it was an ominous source.
I had originally planned to listen to her and not use it for the rest of my life.
But two years ago, I changed my mind.
I don’t want to watch you fight alone anymore.
I want to fight side by side with you.
I don’t want to be pulled further and further away by you.”

Tang Siyu’s expression was calm, however, her tone was extremely determined.

That day, she saw Chu Yunfan standing in front of her all alone and even exchanging his life for power.
Although Chu Yunfan was safe and sound, she knew that the process was dangerous.

She did not want that to happen again.
She could only improve herself so that she had the right to stand by his side.

Chu Yunfan felt Tang Siyu’s sincerity and held her hand tightly.

For so long, he had neglected Tang Siyu.
She wasn’t a person who would just cower behind him to take cover from the wind and rain.
Otherwise, she wouldn’t have left the Tang family and come to Calm Ocean City.

“Don’t you want to know why my family agreed to let me come to this exchange meet? You know that Wei Zixiong doesn’t have good intentions.” Tang Siyu looked at Chu Yunfan.

Chu Yunfan didn’t hesitate and nodded.

“It still has something to do with the legacy pearl.
Within two years, I entered the Innate Stage and jumped up to the eighth level.
How could the family not suspect me? In addition to Jiang Lingxiao’s previous actions, it led them to figure out some things about the pearl.
However, just obtaining the pearl without a specific method is useless, so they wanted to force me to give it up,” Tang Siyu said.

Chu Yunfan raised his eyebrows and said bluntly, “Is this how Tang Tianluo treats his daughter?”

He didn’t expect the head of the Tang family to be so despicable.

“My father is no longer the one in charge of the Tangs.
A year ago, my father was ambushed by an unknown person overseas.
Now, the one in charge of the family is my stepmother.
Oh, right.
She’s from the Jiang family.
She married into the family when the family and the Jiangs were still on good terms.”

Tang Siyu tried her best to calm herself.
However, there was still a trace of resentment in her eyes.
She still remembered how her mother was tortured by her stepmother and eventually died of illness.

“What?” Chu Yunfan was shocked.
He didn’t expect the situation to develop to this extent in just two years.

The Tangs and the Jiangs had a tradition of being friendly.
If Jiang Yuanbin hadn’t revealed that the Jiangs’ Great Ancestor was controlling the Tangs’ Great Ancestor like a puppet, the two families would have gotten closer and closer.

However, he didn’t expect that the person in charge of the Tang family was actually a woman from the Jiang family.
No wonder the Tangs’ previous reaction was so strange.

“Your stepmother had treated you so unfairly.
Don’t the others care?” Chu Yunfan asked.

The Tang family was such a huge entity.
How could they be controlled by others so easily? That would be underestimating those people in the Tang family too much.

When she said this, Tang Siyu’s lips curled into a cold smile.
“There are many others who too want to obtain the pearl, so they just stand by and watch.”
