Chapter 1180: Xiao Bao the Cripple (Two)
After leaving the Ancient Medicine Village, the Heavenly Enchantress did not return to Three Saint Island immediately. Instead, she ripped open a space gate and went to the City of God in the Holy Empire.
As one of the seven capitals of the continent, its prosperity was beyond suspicion. People surged through the streets and alleyways as shouts rang out, adding to the commotion. It was bustling and countless experts gathered there.
A giant, majestic castle stood in the center of the city like a sleeping primordial beast. A large number of white-robed Radiant Saint Masters who bore various colored badges on their chests walked in and out.
This was the headquarters of the Radiant Saint Master Union, the most sacred place to Radiant Saint Masters on the continent since almost all the Class 7 Radiant Saint Masters gathered there
At this moment, the Heavenly Enchantress appeared silently with her zither and veil. She hovered a hundred meters in the air as she coldly stared at the castle. Shortly afterward, a powerful presence radiated from her, surging out like a blanket and enveloping the entire headquarters.
All the experts within the union became alarmed. Figures flickered outside the castle as several Saint Rulers made their way outside as quickly as possible. They glared at the Heavenly Enchantress.
Afterward, around a dozen balls of white light flew out of the castle. They were white-robed Radiant Saint Masters with blue and purple badges. The president and grand elders stood at the very front. Behind them followed other Class 6 and 7 Radiant Saint Masters.
The president stared at the Heavenly Enchantress in interest. When he recognized her, surprise immediately flashed through his eyes, and he said, “Mu’er, it’s actually you!”
The Heavenly Enchantress looked at the president and her cold eyes immediately began to warm up slightly, and some respect appeared in her gaze as well.
“I greet the president!” The Heavenly Enchantress nodded her head slightly, greeting the president of the Radiant Saint Master Union on her own accord.
The president gently smiled, as if he was an elder looking at a junior. He said, “Mu’er, it’s been so many years and this is the first time you’ve come to my union. Please come in.”
The Saint Rulers who had hurried over at the very beginning immediately became relieved when they heard what the president had said. The gazes they directed toward the Heavenly Enchantress were no longer filled with hostility. The hostility had been replaced by shock and admiration.
Although her face was covered by a veil, it was not enough to conceal the Heavenly Enchantress’ supreme beauty. Just by standing there, everyone could feel an otherworldly bearing from her, as if she was a goddess.
“Esteemed president, I’ve come visiting this time because I have a matter that I wish the great union to assist me with,” said the Heavenly Enchantress.
“Shangguan Mu’er, your father’s a very good friend of the union. The union will fulfill any request you have as long as its within our capabilities. May I ask what you need us for?” The grand elder responded.
The Heavenly Enchantress’ eyes immediately grew cold when she heard the word ‘father.’ She said, “I’ve come looking for help out of my own accord. It has nothing to do with Hao Wu. Your relationship with him has nothing to do with me.”
“Sigh,” the president gently exhaled. He said, “Mu’er, are you still unwilling to forgive your father even after so many years?”
“Don’t mention that person in front of me,” the Heavenly Enchantress coldly replied. She radiated an unhideable anger.
The president and grand elder looked at each other and shook their heads helplessly. They sighed inside. From the Heavenly Enchantress’ reaction, they knew that her hatred for her own father was still extremely deep.
A while later, the Heavenly Enchantress calmed down. She said, “President, I want to take a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master with me to Three Saint Island.”
The president pondered in silence before deeply looking at the Heavenly Enchantress. He said, “Mu’er, a huge matter has happened on the Tian Yuan Continent two days ago. Many Saint Kings were heavily injured, so almost all the Class 7 Radiant Saint Masters of the union have been whisked away by the various ancient clans and protector clans. Right now, there’s only three Class 7 Radiant Saint Masters watching over the union, yet you want to take a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master to the distant Three Saint Island in this time of need. It really does make it rather hard for us, but of course, your father’s a good friend of the union. If your father comes personally, the union will agree to the request without any hesitation.”
“Esteemed president, I am still extremely grateful to you for saving my life all those years ago, but I need to take a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master with me back to the island no matter what. I hope you can agree to this,” the Heavenly Enchantress sincerely replied. All of this was for Xiao Bao.
The energy hidden within ten-thousand-year heavenly resources was tremendous. The Heaven’s Heart Lotus might have been refined into a pill with mild medicinal effects, but Xiao Bao was still young. She was unwilling to take the risk, so she needed to be prepared to prevent any accidents from happening to him.
A hunch-backed figure flew out of the castle. He was a wrinkly old man who wore simple clothes. He seemed like any old person, but he was the one and only Saint King of the union.
“Shangguan Mu’er, you should go ask your father to come, or it’s impossible for you to take a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master with you to Three Saint Island,” the old man said rather powerlessly.
The Heavenly Enchantress stared unblinkingly at the old man. Her voice became rather icy as well, “Elder Jia, if I really wanted to take a Class 7 Radiant Saint Master with me, no one can stop me, even with the entire union in perspective. I just don’t want to cause that type of trouble since the president once saved my life.”
Elder Jia began to laugh, “It’s rumored that the Heavenly Enchantress can captivate the soul and harm it with a single tune, able to kill people without even letting them notice. However, all your opponents were Saint Rulers. The souls of Saint Kings are incomparable to the souls of Saint Rulers, so your melodies cannot harm me even if they prove to be fatal to Saint Rulers.”
