Chapter 1426: Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperors
His soul rapidly grew once more, undergoing a drastic metamorphosis. Two specks of light had appeared in his soul as it strengthened. These were seeds, the sources of life and death he had obtained after comprehending their true essence. One represented death, the other represented life.
The illusion ended. The planet beneath the white tiger vanished and the cosmos shattered. When he saw the landscape around him, he discovered that he had returned to the Beast God Hall.
This floor was extremely different from the ninety-eighth floor. A statue of a white tiger with two wings stood in the center of the room. Its wings were completely unfurled. They seemed to be able to blot out the sky and rip through worlds.
A hundred-meter-tall platform stood at the end of the floor. The platform only possessed a single throne. There was nothing else on the floor aside from the statue, platform, and throne.
"The second Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperor, you have finally come. I have waited for this day for a very long time." At this moment, a voice filled with vigor rang out. Beside the white tiger, a man in white clothes hovered a meter from the ground. He shone with a gentle, white light, obscuring his appearance.
The white tiger let out a deep growl as he observed the man in interest. However, he sensed an extremely close presence radiating from the man.
"Correct, I am that Winged Tiger God that appeared in ancient times. However, the Winged Tiger God is only a name given to us by others. Our true identities are Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperors, also known as White Tiger Emperors."
"Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperors are given birth to by the world. Our lives are bestowed to us by the world, but unlike natural spirits, we are born from the various organisms in the world. Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperors are true rulers. We possess the greatest bloodlines in the world, and it's rare for even a single one to appear in ten million years. We possess potential that has been bestowed om us by the world, directly comparable to the ancestral dragons. We are existences that can become Grand Exalts.
"I was the first Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperor to be born in the past eight million years. My home is not here but an extremely distant place. I love my home very much, but I had to leave my beloved home in the end…
"Back when I had come to this world for the first time, my soul fused with the world and resonated with it during one of my comprehensions. I witnessed the source of the world for the first time, which forecasted that a second Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperor would be born here within a million years. I left my legacy here to provide assistance to the future clansmen.
"The Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperor is unquestionably the emperor of white tigers. It's rare for them to appear within even ten million years, yet a second one was going to appear in another million year. It has disproven the past, representing the descent of an unprecedented age of prosperity."
The man in white clothes slowly made his way to the white tiger before gently rubbing his head. He continued, "This is a clone that I left behind with a fragment of my soul. It has existed since ancient times, so it cannot last much longer and will disperse soon. You will properly comprehend the Way of Slaughter here, second Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperor. Only when you have truly mastered the basics can you leave. We will meet again."
The white tiger looked at the man and produced a deep roar. Determination filled its eyes.
"This world has already been sealed, preventing anyone from reaching the Origin realm. However, it cannot seal natural spirits of the world, nor can it seal the powerful bloodline of Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperors, so nothing can obstruct you from reaching the Origin realm. Once you become powerful enough, go to the higher world with your companions. You can learn about that place from your friend…
"Grow well, second Sacredfeathered Tiger Emperor. We may possess a powerful bloodline that directly rivals the ancestral dragons, giving us the possibility to become Great Exalts, but we have been born in a prosperous age. Powerful experts will definitely stand in great numbers in the future, so we must stand hand-in-hand and kill our way back to our home together…
"I am about to disperse. Proceed to the throne and accept the legacy…"
As he uttered the final sentence, the man turned into countless specks of light and dispersed. In the blink of an eye, the ninety-ninth floor of the Beast God Hall fell silent.
The white tiger stared in the direction the man had stood in a daze. Only after quite a while did he finally turn his eyes to the throne up ahead. He then began to slowly make his way over.
As soon as he leaped onto the throne, the entire Beast God Hall violently trembled. At that moment, the terrifying energy hidden within the divine hall began to move about violently. It gathered from all directions, surging toward the mysterious ninety-ninth floor.
The white tiger's body violently jerked before he closed his eyes and collapsed on the throne. He entered a deep state of cultivation. All the energy that had gathered on the floor poured into the throne. The brutal, terrifying energy, filled with the presence of death, became gentle after it was funneled through the throne. It allowed the white tiger's strength to grow at an unbelievable rate.
At the same time, the white tiger's consciousness had drifted off into another world. There, he began to comprehend the Way of Slaughter left behind by the other Winged Tiger God. In his soul, the two specks of light, which represented the sources of life and death, flickered. They gradually swelled as the white tiger comprehended the Way of Slaughter.
The movements of the divine hall alerted all the magical beasts cultivating there. The energy within the divine hall wildly churned, forming a terrifying pressure. Even the Class 8 Magical Beasts found it difficult to endure and some of the ones still injured from the battle against the World of Forsaken Saints vomited blood. Their wounds deepened.
"What's happening? Why is there such a terrifying pressure in the Beast God Hall…"
"The energy in the divine hall is unstable. Something's happened. Something abnormal has happened to the divine hall…"
"Oh no, the pressure is rapidly strengthening. At this rate, we'll be injured by the pressure sooner or later. We need to leave immediately…"
At that moment, all the powerful magical beasts cultivating in the Beast God Hall revealed drastically different expressions. They flew out of the hall, shocked and confused. They hovered in the sky outside as they stared at the huge divine hall.
"Everyone, please do not panic. The great beast god has returned and has entered the mysterious ninety-ninth floor for its legacy. The abnormality of the divine hall is due to his return."
An ancient but energetic voice boomed from the sky. Cangqiong, Jian Chen, Rum Guinness, and Nubis had all left the ninety-eighth floor as well. They currently hovered outside and looked down on everyone.Chapter Notes:
