- After Nie Li had been living in her courtyard for about a week Xiao Ning'er came to visit. She was obviously upset at seeing that Nie Li had managed to get closer to Ye Ziyun which caused a rather awkward moment when they all met up. After Xiao Ning'er noticed that Nie Li was injured, he told both of them about how Ye Zong had thoroughly spanked him and jokingly asked if either of them would like to apply the medical cream. However, Xiao Ning'er agrees to it and Ye Ziyun quickly follows. The situation was a little strange and awkward, but after both girls applied the ointment they seemed to remember their friendship. Afterwards, Xiao Ning'er came regularly to visit both Nie Li and Ye Ziyun.

- When Nie Li, Ye Ziyun, and Xiao Ning'er arrived at the banquet, Ye Han came up to greet her and give her a gift. Despite the fact that the Frozen Jade Bracelet is a very nice and rare item, she still immediately refused. However, Nie Li grabbed the bracelet out of Ye Han's hands, saying that he accepts it on Ye Ziyun's behalf.
- Even though Ye Ziyun had always looked up to her adoptive big brother, deep down she also resented him. Because of his talent, Ye Zong always paid more attention to him, and Ye Ziyun felt like Ye Han stole her father from her.
- Ye Ziyun is a witness to the events that happen at the banquet. She sees the scene that Nie Li makes by threatening Shen Fei to make him leave, and the fact that Ye Zong not only ignores Nie Li's actions, but protects him from Shen Hong.

- She is only a 1 star gold rank and it is very difficult for her to fight off two 3 star gold rank demon beasts.

Taking down the Sacred Family Arc
- In the middle of the night she is told about Ye Han's attack on her father. Because she is so close she arrives quickly and finds Ye Zong very weak. He desperately apologizes to Ye Ziyun for not being a better father and tells her that he regrets not spending more time with her.
- When Nie Li arrives Ye Zong asks him to watch over his daughter. Nie Li informs Ye Xiu and Ye Ziyun that he can save Ye Zong. Ye Ziyun begs him and promises him anything if he can save him, completely forgetting the fight they had earlier. Nie Li assures her that he will not let Ye Zong die without witnessing their wedding. He spends the next several hours using the Daoyin Technique to draw the poison out of Ye Zong's system.
- Ye Ziyun is once again grateful to Nie Li and is no longer sure she can give him to Xiao Ning'er, no matter how much she wants to remain friends. She apologizes for her earlier words and once again promises him anything she can do to repay him. She then takes the initiative to kiss him on the cheek at which point Nie Li pulls her into an embrace.
- When Ye Zong woke up to discover Nie Li holding his daughter he immediately went into a rage and started throwing pillows and insults at Nie Li. Making Ye Ziyun feel relieved at seeing her previously weak father back to his old self. After Ye Zong had calmed down he tells Ye Ziyun to take Nie Li to the treasure house of the Snow Wind Family and gives permission for them to take anything that will be useful for their protection.
Snow Wind Family's Treasury:
- At the treasury Ye Ziyun did not have any problem with Nie Li taking anything he wished. One of the first things he found was some Divine Guardian Rocks. After they were repaired he took three for himself and gave three to Ye Ziyun. He also found five repairable Legend rank forbidden technique scrolls. He kept two and gave Ye Ziyun the other three. Nie Li also found and took a mysterious egg covered in inscription patterns that he said that he wished to study. In the end Nie Li took hundreds of strange treasures.
- That night Ye Ziyun went into Nie Li's room and removed her gown. She felt both guilty for treating him harshly earlier and grateful to him for saving her father. Her Aunt Xue always told her that men will not cherish things once they obtain them. She wants to give herself to Nie Li so that he will stop chasing after her and be able to accept Xiao Ning'er's feelings.
- Even though she is shaking and nervous she still climbs into the bed. However, Nie Li only places a quilt between them and tells her that he loves her, not Xiao Ning'er, and that will not change. He then stays beside her as she sleeps. In the morning Ye Ziyun is incredible embarrassed and can not fathom what got into her to act that way. She does not understand why he is so dedicated to her.
Training in the Mountains Arc
- After Nie Li and her father locked her up she is mad at them and refusing to talk or see either of them. Even though she knows Nie Li has come to her door she decides not to talk to him.

The Group's Cultivation:
- Nie Li then asked everyone to help in gathering demon spirits and some other materials. Two days later they returned to the yard and Nie Li uses the items to set down the Demon Spirit Devouring Technique array. This technique will release more then enough soul force and power of law for all of them to raise their strength by leaps and bounds. Ye Ziyun, and the rest of his friends, then start to cultivate within the activated array around him.
- Ye Ziyun's cultivation advanced very quickly as she moved through the levels of gold rank. While still cultivating in the array she noticed strange lightning energy attacking her soul realm and merged with her demon spirit to defend against it. Somehow this pure energy altered the original array and formed a Soul Array between Nie Li, Ye Ziyun, and the others. By the time she left the array she was able to become a 5 star gold rank demon spiritualist.
Duan Jian's Revenge Arc
Ye Ziyun's Engagement:
- Now that the engagement between Nie Li and Ye Ziyun has been agreed upon, the Heavenly Marks Family made a big show of bringing the betrothal gifts to the City Lord's Mansion. The Snow Wind Family elders unanimously agreed with the engagement. Ye Ziyun had little say on the matter and only felt confusion with the situation.
- Nie Li travels with Duan Jian to the Abyss Prison Realm to complete his need for revenge. When he returns to Glory City, Nie Li gathered everyone together and tells them that they were going to leave tomorrow and head to the Nether Realm.

Luqian Sha and Luqian Mo:

- Ye Ziyun was not strong enough to help in the fight and just stands guard nearby, however she was able to provide Nie Li and Duan Jian with more soul force trough the Soul array. Afterwards, everyone is shocked by the power of Nie Li's Draconic Bombs, Yu Yan apologizes for endangering everyone, and Nie Li searches the bodies.
Exploring the Nine-Layered Deathlands Arc
- After arriving in the Nether Realm, the group heads to the entrance of the Nine-Layered Deathlands where they meet Luo Xiao. They then head into the first layer of the deathlands in the search for Spiritual Origin Fruit, but get separated by a Fog of Misleading.
- Nie Li grabs onto Ye Ziyun's hand and they manage to stay together. Even though they are now fiancées Ye Ziyun still feels uncomfortable being so close to Nie Li, however she did not want to get lost. After several hours they finally were able to get out of the fog, but were unable to located the others.
Cang Ming and Mu Ye:
- Many high ranking experts from the Nether Realm where also drawn by the strong aura and were circling a muddy lake that it was at the bottom of. The strongest young geniuses of the Nether realm, Cang Ming and Mu Ye, decided to work together in order to secure the treasure and jumped in, only to provoke a Zombie Jiao-dragon.
- The treasure turned out to be a Scarlet Pearl embedded in its forehead. As the experts fought the terrifying demon beast, Nie Li and Ye Ziyun watched from nearby. When a stray corrosive attack came towards them, Nie Li had to use a Divine Guardian Rock to protect them, accidentally falling on top of Ye Ziyun and causing a slightly awkward moment.
- Among the many experts watching the fight against the Zombie Jiao-dragon, Nie Li and Ye Ziyun spotted Ye Han along with about twenty members of the Wugui Family. She immediately felt a great hatred for him for all that he had done. When the Wugui Family members start approaching she readies her Blizzard Spiritual Gem in order to raise the strength of her snow wind attacks.
- After merging with her Snow Queen, She was able to utilize the abilities of her snow wind techniques to coordinate well with Nie Li. She used ice to restrict their moment, form a wall for defense, and create icicles to impale them with. She also coordinated with Nie Li's fanged panda to give him the best opening to attack. When Wu Yu ordered the Wugui family members to focus on attacking her, she formed a large blizzard to surround Nie Li and her. While Nie Li defended her, she rained down countless icicles on the attackers. The battle ended quickly when Nie Li activated a legend rank forbidden technique scroll, Golden Shield, and took out both of the legend rank attackers with a Yin Yang Blast x10.
- After the battle, when Nie Li chased after Ye Han, Wu Yu took the opportunity to attempt to escape. Ye Ziyun chased after him and was about to strike him down with an ice sword thrown at his fleeing back. However, just as it was about to hit, it was intercepted by Tian Ling.
- At this moment Nie Li joins them. Since the Wugui Family is a vassel to Tian Ling's Northern Nether Family, he will protect Wu Yu. In this situation Nie Li decides to let the matter end here and leaves with Ye Ziyun.
- After walking away, Nie Li then tells Ye Ziyun about Ye Han's probably death and she asks him not to tell her father. Despite all that he had done Ye Han was still like a son to Ye Zong.
- The various experts were still in the midst of fighting the Zombie Jaio-dragon when Nie Li and Ye Ziyun again looked at the lake. After a lightning attack of Cang Ming failed to penetrate the Jaio-dragon's defenses he brought out a terrifyingly powerful lightning spear and seriously injured it. After seeing such a powerfully attack Mu Ye let the Jaio-dragon escape into the lake. Cang Ming then continued to hunt the Jaio-dragon from the surface.
Xiao Ning’er and Xiao Yu:
- It is then that Xiao Ning'er shows up with a young man that she met named Xiao Yu. He is very handsome and extremely powerful. He comes across as perfect and annoys Nie Li to no end. Ye Ziyun teases Nie Li that he is jealousy over his closeness to Xiao Ning'er. Even though it is obvious from Xiao Ning'er's reactions around Nie Li that she is in love with him, Ye Ziyun’s personality wouldn’t let her actively pursue anything. Instead, she would rather sit back and let fate set her course. However, there is an awkward atmosphere around them.
- After traveling in to the depths of the first layer of the Nine-Layered Deathlands, the group followed some Demigod rank experts to a floating tomb guarded by a large skeleton that appears to hold a piece of the shattered Divine Spark of the Death God. Nie Li and Xiao Yu decide to explore the Death God's Tomb and leave Xiao Ning'er and Ye Ziyun hidden outside. To make sure that they are safe, Xiao Yu gives them a Golden Scroll.
Tian Ling and Wu Yu:
- While Nie Li and Xiao Yu were in the tomb, Ye Ziyun and Xiao Ning'er were discovered by Tian Ling, Wu Yu, and about thirty others. The group threatened them and demanded that the girls come with them. However, their attitudes change completely after seeing the Golden Scroll. They lowered their heads and begged the girls for forgiveness for their actions. Then they quickly left when the girls told them to go. This powerful reaction startled Ye Ziyun as she realized the there was more to Xiao Yu then she originally thought.
- After facing the situation together. Ye Ziyun felt that she was once again closer to Xiao Ning'er, as she had been when they were children. Ye Ziyun felt terribly guilty that Nie Li had chosen her despite Xiao Ning'er being in love with him. Ye Ziyun desperately wanted them to renew their friendship once again.
- After Nie Li returns alone from the tomb they continued to search for the other members of their group. Yu Yan shows up and gives Nie Li the Soul Mirror that she found. Nie Li also gives Xiao Ning'er the Scarlet Pearl from the Zombie Jiao-dragon.
- After two more days wandering the deathlands, everyone was finally reunited. At this time they had found eleven Spiritual Origin Fruits and decided to return back to the Jade Seal Family's camp at the entrance. They each ate a fruit and began to cultivate, becoming very close to legend rank.
The Master of Nether's Disciple Arc
- When the door to the seventh layer of the Nine-Layered Deathlands opened, a crowed of hundreds of thousands of demigod, legend, and black gold rank experts rushed through. Ye Ziyun was there when Luo Xiao asked Nie Li to be careful and suggested that they enter towards the back of the line.
Lord of Nether's servants:
- After entering the seventh layer, a group of powerful cultivators appeared and announced the first test. A water ball formed in front of each person. It was a test of soul force control called the Sphere of Reverse Images. To pass the test, one must feed the sphere soul force through small threads, making it grow at least one foot in diameter. However, the visible threads are fake. Nie li tells his friends that to pass the test they need to sense out the true threads. Ye Ziyun was able to make the sphere grow to five feet, passing the test.
- Once all those that passed were teleported to the eight layer, the Lord of Nether's servants told them that the second test would take place in the nearby Black Infernal Tower. Inside that tower are supreme black flames and all kinds of demon beasts. Although the demon beasts have been chained, they can still discharge powerful energy. They are to cultivate inside that environment for ten days. Those who can reach the Anatta Mental State of cultivation will have passed the test.
- The black flames can attack a person's soul realm directly. Ye Ziyun watched as several experts who did not have a strong enough soul, crippled their cultivation trying to force their was in. As they approached, Nie Li cautiously asked if everyone was alright. Because of their stronger then normal souls, Ye Ziyun, along with everyone else, said that they were fine.
- After entering the tower, Duan Jian's body ignited in black flames. Though it resembled what had happened to the cultivators whose soul were too weak, in actuality it was the exact opposite. Duan Jian's Black dragon body was so compatible with the black flames that it was absorbing them and strengthening his soul realm on its own.
Ye Ziyun's Cultivation:
- The group continued up to the second floor, where the pressure felt by the black flames was far greater. Since Duan Jian could easily cultivate by absorbing the flames without even trying, he instead stood guard to protect everyone. Ye Ziyun and the rest sat down and began to cultivate. She slowly absorbed the black flames, strengthening her body and soul. As Nie Li's soul realm surged and broke through into Legend rank. The majestic wave of profound law energy flowed through the soul array, overwhelming her and causing her to jump directly to 2 star legend rank.
- Afterward the group also headed up to the third floor, where they found a terrifyingly powerful Celestial Qilin chained up. Nie Li attempted to bargain with the demon beast in order to have it willingly integrate with Du Ze. The reason was because the Celestial Qilin would be the perfect demon spirit match for Du Ze's Attribute and Form. When the creature refused, Nie Li used some of Duan Jian's blood, which contains the energy from the powerful black flames, to form an inscription pattern around it. This pattern attracted more of the black flames to this location in the tower.
- After cursing and threatening each other, Nie Li and the Celestial Qilin finally seemed to come to an agreement. Nie Li stopped the black flame inscription pattern in exchange for some of the Celestial Qilin's blood. However, the demon beast tossed the basin of his blood short in the hopes of tricking Nie Li into coming close enough that he could attack him. Nie Li first merged with his Fanged Panda and threw a Yin Yang Blast and Draconic Bombs at the Celestial Qilin, then he switched to his Shadow Devil. While the others distracted it with various types of attacks Nie Li was able to sneak close enough to grab the basin of blood and toss it to Du Ze. In a rage the Celestial Qilin rained dozens of lightning strikes at him. However, Nie Li simply used his void form to avoid them and make his way outside the reach of the demon beast.
- Now that he had its blood, Nie Li drew an array to restrained the Celestial Qilin so that it could not attack them. He then drew a Soul Seal to transform the demon beast's body and integrate it with Du Ze's soul Realm. The seal can only be removed by Du Ze, insuring that the Celestial Qilin can not harm him, and Du Ze promised to free him after fifty years.
- After advancing up to the fourth floor of the tower Ye Ziyun could not stand the pressure from the black flames to advance higher. Along with everyone else in the group besides Nie Li and Yu Yan, she stayed to cultivate on this floor.
The Lord of Nether:
- After the test ended, Ye Ziyun and everyone else were teleported to the ninth layer. Once there, she met the Lord of Nether as well as the other six ambassadors. The Lord of Nether then explained that they had all been chosen by one of the ambassadors as a disciple and will be heading to the Draconic Ruins Realm in three months to train. Once there they will not be able to return for five years. They must also form a Soul Seal with their new master to insure loyalty, as betrayal was considered a capital offense. Xiao Ning'er, Ye Ziyun, and Xiao Xue ended up forming a soul seal with Ling Yun from the Heavenly Note Sect.
Leaving for the Draconic Ruins Realm Arc
- Before heading back to Glory City to say goodbye, Nie Li asked for everyone to go with him to the Endless Desert in search of the Desert Palace. After arriving in the desert, Ye Ziyun became lost in thought. She started to recall strange "memories" of this place. When Nie Li asked if she was alright she told him about them. Suddenly images of her and Nie Li sleeping together came into her mind and she became embarrassed and slapped him. Her heart was in turmoil and confused over these strange memories.
- After searching for days for the mysterious Desert Palace. Nie Li entered a profound trance-like state which lead them to some ancient ruins that had long since been destroyed. Nie Li seemed to be confused and started to walk among the ruins when he suddenly fell unconscious. The group returned to Glory City where Nie Li remained in this coma for about a month. During this time, either Ye Ziyun or Xiao Ning'er remained at his side continuously, watching over him and trying to help him recover. After Xiao Xue told her that Nie Li was waking up, she ran to his side. Even though Xiao Ning'er was hugging him, Ye Ziyun was not jealous and only thankful that he was alright.
- Suddenly, the loud sounds of a nearby fight drew their attention. They found the Demon Lord attacking Ye Mo, destroying many of the buildings in the City Lord's Mansion. Ye Ziyun joined Nie Li, Ye Zong, and the others in supporting Ye Mo in suppressing the Demon Lord. However, after Nie Li started to attack with the Thunder God’s Meteorite Sword, the Demon Lord felt danger and changed his tactics. Instead of facing it head on, he evaded its strike and charged in close. He grabbed Ye Zong and overpowered him with the power of Hell.
- Ye Ziyun was only able to helplessly watch as her father bravely continued to strike out at the Demon Lord, only to have his right arm brutally ripped off.

The Demon Lord again demanded the Demon Spirit Stone that Ye Mo held, and proceeded to rip off Ye Zong's other arm. With no other way to save is son's life, Ye Mo threw the demon spirit stone to the Demon Lord. However, the Demon Lord then pierced through Ye Zong's chest, fatally wounding him. Knowing that his end was near, Ye Zong activated the Snow Wind Family's self destruction technique, turning himself to ice. This destroyed his soul, but allowed him to cause heavy damages to the Demon Lord as well.
- Ye Ziyun then watched as Nie Li executed a secret technique that quickly raised his strength and struck out at the Demon Lord. Everyone hastily moved out of the way as wave after wave of terrifying lightning energy struck the Demon Lord, destroying his arms, legs, and even his head. However, his life was saved by a Draconic Ruins Realm artifact armor as he quickly flew away.
- Nie Li told her that if they go to the Draconic Ruins Realm and become stronger, there might be some chance out there to revive Ye Zong. In grief, she clings to that slim bit of hope. Though they have never been particularly close, Ye Mo tries his best to comfort her, and she promises him that she will become strong enough to revive Ye Zong and get revenge against the Demon Lord. She could see how the loss of her father had weighed heavily on him and he seemed to have suddenly aged.
- After a month they headed back to the Nine-Layered Deathlands, as it was time to separate and follow their individual masters into the Draconic Ruins Realm. Ye Ziyun hugged Nie Li and said a tearful goodbye. She was determined to become stronger in order to revive he father and stand by Nie Li's side.
