Chapter 1279: The Heavenly Enchantress’ Strength (One)
Everyone present wavered when they heard that, including the grand elder of Mercenary City. All of them could not help but think of the World of Forsaken Saints.
“Did Changyang Qing Yun learn about the World of Forsaken Saints before us?” An independent Saint King thought.
Changyang Qing Yun paused slightly. He became extremely stern and said, “I believe everyone still remembers the war god who invaded our continent and slaid many of our experts in ancient times, right? Now, the war god of the Hundred Races has reappeared. If he successfully matures, it will definitely lead to a bloody storm on the Tian Yuan Continent. The war god is currently with Jian Chen. We need to kill the war god before he fully matures, or we’ll be in for another disaster.”
Everyone became shocked by this information other than the grand elder. The war god of the Hundred Races was one of the four existences that had surpassed Saint Emperor in ancient times. He had once been a terrifying nightmare for the humans, and the ten protector clans could not stop him even after using everything they had. If Mo Tianyun had not appeared out of nowhere in that final moment and repelled him, the Tian Yuan Continent probably would have ended up in the hands of the Hundred Races.
The reappearance of the war god was just far too astounding to everyone.
Only the grand elder remained as usual. He chuckled like it was nothing, “Fantastic, utterly fantastic. The war god of the Hundred Races sure has come at the right time. Now that our continent is facing devastating danger and are in need of power, the war god reappears. That’s like giving us exactly what we need.”
“The grand elder is extremely correct. Not only has the war god reappeared, even the Winged Tiger God has been born again. If they both mature successfully, they will become Origin realm experts. They’ll be the peak powers of our world,” said the ancestral emperor of the Felicity Empire.
The great elders became stunned when they processed what the ancestral emperor had said. They were completely at a loss. They glanced past the Saint Kings that had saved them with an odd expression. Not only did they fail to discover any grimness, quite a few of them were even rejoicing.
In ancient times, the war god Aergyns created an irreconcilable hatred between him and the humans and magical beasts. The Tian Yuan Continent had almost fallen into the hands of the Hundred Races. Now that the war god had reappeared, he would soon surpass the level of Saint Emperor. Not only did these Saint Kings do nothing after learning about the war god, they celebrated instead. This immediately made the five great elders wonder whether they were still on the Tian Yuan Continent or not and if the Saint Kings before them were humans or not.
This was because the only people who would celebrate after hearing that the war god had returned would be the Hundred Races to the five of them.
“Changyang Qing Yun, since you’ve been freed, please come to Mercenary City with us. Something significant has happened on the continent. Mercenary City has already invited the other protector clans and Saint Kings scattered across the continent to gather there. Even a few overseas human experts have been invited to come as well,” the grand elder said sternly.
“Something significant has happened? Have you all learned that the war god has reappeared long ago and that we’re gathering all the experts to deal with him?” Changyang Qing Yun asked in doubt. To him, nothing was more important than the reappearance of the war god. However, what he did not understand was why the Saint Kings rejoiced when he mentioned the war god before? He could not understand no matter how hard he thought.
The grand elder’s stern expression immediately melted away because of what Changyang Qing Yun had said. He shook his head with a forced smile, “If it was before, the reappearance of the war god would obviously have been an extremely great matter, but it’s different now. The seal beneath Mercenary City has been destroyed. The experts of the World of Forsaken Saints can invade the Tian Yuan Continent at any moment. We just happen to be in need of power and the war god has suddenly appeared in these times of need. It’s obviously something fantastic to all of us.”
“What? The World of Forsaken Saints? Was grand elder Tian Jian telling the truth all those years ago?” Changyang Yuan Wuji immediately became surprised and asked in disbelief.
The four other great elders revealed different expressions because of this news as well. They looked at each other as shock filled the depths of their eyes.
They had once heard about the seal beneath Mercenary City from Tian Jian, but they thought it was a story that was exaggerated and unrealistic, so none of them believed it.
“Was that matter true?” They all thought inside. They could already sense a vague answer to that question after seeing how the Saint Kings present all beamed when they announced that the war god had returned.
“Everyone, time is tight. Please come to Mercenary City right now, and then we can discuss the important matters,” the grand elder invited them once again. Without saying anything more, he ripped open a Space Gate and left.
The Saint Kings that had come with him all ripped open Space Gates as well and left through them.
Seeing how everyone had left, the five great elders pondered a little before hurriedly passing over some matters to their clansmen. They then closed the World Gate and ripped open Space Gates, hurrying to Mercenary City together.
When they arrived in Mercenary City, they discovered with a glance that the city had been reduced to rubble. Their hearts immediately sank inside. They had never thought that such great changes would have occurred on the Tian Yuan Continent in the few months they had been trapped in the miniature world.
The five great elders were all invited into the miniature world of Mercenary City. The Saint Kings gathered there had increased. Mercenary City had already invited the Saint Kings of the ten protector clans, three great empires, and various ancient clans. Even the overseas human Saint Kings had hurried over.
All the Saint Kings there were rather heavy-hearted, causing the atmosphere of the room to become rather heavy as well. The matter of the World of Forsaken Saints pressed against their chests like a boulder, making breathing difficult.
The five great elders from the protector Changyang clan discovered Changyang Zu Xiao and Changyang Zu Yunxiao on the ground, and they became absolutely furious. However, they understood that the circumstances were not suitable to resolve the conflicts of their clan right now. At the sametime, their disagreements with the Zu branch over the Saints’ Fruit was not a pretty matter. Changyang Qing Yun obviously did not wish for the matter to be spread beyond the clan, so he just ended up closing his eyes, treating the two of them as if they did not exist.
At this moment, a gentle, pleasant, and almost divine note suddenly rang out from outside. The zither note seemed to possess endless amounts of charm with a mysterious power. All the heavy-hearted Saint Kings relaxed after hearing the music. The note had removed all the worries and negative emotions from the minds of the Saint Kings, allowing them to return to their usual mood.
In the blink of an eye, the heavy atmosphere of the room vanished. It had been replaced by a light, enthusiastic atmosphere.
All the Saint Kings present were greatly shocked when they sensed the changes in their emotions. They turned their eyes to the entrance of the room and saw an elegant, veiled woman in a purple dress walking in gently and carrying a zither.
The woman did not give off any presence, as if she had never cultivated before. However, the presence she gave off was divine, noble, and otherworldly, as if she was a goddess.
Her eyes were bright and bewitching. Although her appearance was obscured, her beauty was rather evident from her limpid eyes.
“What a beauty. Why have I never heard of this woman?” At this moment, many Saint Kings sighed inside. At the same time, they thought o the same thing. There were actually barely any of them who knew about this woman.
“Weird. She obviously didn’t touch the strings, but I can feel that the note clearly originated from her. Just where did it come from? How did she produce a note without using her hands or touching the strings of the zither?” A Saint King was filled with curiosity. He could not think of an explanation no matter what. Even with his experiences and knowledge, he could not explain what had just happened.
“It’s actually Hao Wu’s daugther, known as the Heavenly Enchantress. I never thought that her way of the zither would have reached such a profound level, where it can actually affect the minds of Saint Kings. This is unbelievable,” an old man in luxurious robes thought. However, he then secretly sighed as gloominess filled his face.
The old man was the ancestor of the Zaar family in the City of God as well as Zaar Caiyun’s great grandfather, Zaar Veimos.
The Heavenly Enchantress walked into the room steadily as she carried her zither. She did not look at the surrounding Saint Kings at all, only fixing her gaze on the elders of Mercenary City. She lowered her head slightly and gently said, “I’ve come to participate in the gathering from the invitation. I greet the elders of Mercenary City.” It was not difficult to hear that her voice carried some respect for the elders of Mercenary City.
“Haha, I never thought that Shangguan Mu’er would come to Mercenary City so quickly. I had thought that it would take you a few days. What’s surprised me even more is that your comprehension of the way of the zither has reached an unfathomable level after a few decades of not seeing you, which has deeply shocked all of us,” the grand elder smiled.
“It’s you!” As soon as the grand elder finished speaking, a high-pitched voice rang out. With Changyang Qing Yun at the front, all five great elders stood up as they glared at the Heavenly Enchantress. They were furious.
“Yes, it’s her. She was the one who secretly used her music to make the clansmen fall into a slumber, preventing us from using the Origin Formation successfully. Otherwise, how could we have been sealed up by those magical beasts?” Changyang Qing Jueri furiously cried out.
“Hmph, although you hid yourself and we never saw your appearance, your zither music has given you away. On the entire continent, there is no one else who has achieved such accomplishments in music other than you,” Changyang Yuan Zhenhua said through gritted teeth. When they had been sealed, it was all because of the Heavenly Enchantress. If she had not secretly interfered, Rui Jin and Hong Lian would not have been enough to seal the Changyang clan.
