Chapter 1434: The Truth Behind the Seal
"Sister, how is it possible for me to not listen to you? You got me to fully absorb the Icesoul, so why wouldn't I listen to you? I've already fully absorbed the Icesoul you gave me," Jian Chen smiled helplessly. He possessed the Chaotic Body, so the rate he could refine energy was incomparable to ordinary cultivators. In this period of seclusion, not only had he fully absorbed the Icesoul, he had even refined an Origin realm Xuanhuang beast's energy crystal.
"Really? Have you really absorbed the Icesoul so quickly? According to protector Shui, even I need at least several years to fully absorb an Icesoul. How did you do it in a few short months?" Changyang Mingyue suspiciously questioned him. However, she seemed to think of something very soon. She appeared enlightened as she said to herself, "I understand now. It must be because of brother's extraordinary talent, which is why you could absorb the Icesoul in such a short time. This is also explains why brother's strength has been increasing so rapidly."
Jian Chen smiled but did not give a detailed explanation. He said, "Sister, I've stayed here for long enough. I plan on returning today. As time goes on, the next wave of invasions from the foreign world grows near. I must return to the Tian Yuan Continent to make preparations, but I want to see protector Shui before I leave. I have a few questions I want to ask her."
Changyang Mingyue also understood the precarious situation of the current Tian Yuan Continent, so she did not urge Jian Chen to stay. She said, "Brother, once my Profound Ice Body matures, I'll come to the Tian Yuan Continent to look for you. We can fend off the invasion of the foreign world together. Let's go, I'll take you to see protector Shui. Her strength is unfathomable where even I can't sense how great it is. If there's anything you're unsure about, feel free to ask her."
Jian Chen obviously met protector Shui without any obstructions under Changyang Mingyue's personal guidance. Very soon, he saw her again in the same room of ice.
"Speak, what do you have to ask this king? I can answer some things you should know seeing how her majesty is your sister." After bowing to Changyang Mingyue, protector Shui turned her icy-cold gaze toward Jian Chen.
Jian Chen bowed to protector Shui and got straight to the point, "Senior, our world's currently sealed, preventing the cultivators of this world from reaching the Origin realm. It's also lead to no Origin realm experts for the four races since ancient times. May I ask if this seal was cast down by senior?"
"The world may be sealed, preventing everyone from reaching the Origin realm aside from species with powerful bloodlines and natural spirits of the world. However, you walk a different path, where you don't need origin energy to reach the Origin realm. As a result, the seal cannot stop you. Since it's no problem to you, why are you sticking your nose into matters that you don't need to care about? You cannot interfere with these matters," protector Shui coldly responded.
"But this matter is connected to my great-grandfather. He's currently at the peak of Saint Emperor and is unable to reach the Origin realm because of the existence of this seal. His life span is limited to ten thousand years. This is how it's connected to me. And, the Tian Yuan Continent is currently facing the threat of the World of Forsaken Saints. If we do not increase the number of Origin realm experts we have, we will not be able to stop them. Senior, please release the seal in consideration of all the life in this world so that they have a chance of reaching the Origin realm," Jian Chen sincerely said, almost like he was pleading. In his eyes, protector Shui's strength was unfathomable. It was extremely likely that she had already reached Godhood, so if she did not remove the seal, Yang Lie and the others would never be able to reach the Origin realm.
Although he believed that he would possess the power to break through the seal in ten thousand years, there were quite a few Origin realm experts in the foreign world. No one knew whether Yang Lie and the others would survive the coming battles.
After all, they had fallen from the Origin realm to Saint Emperor and were only able to display the strength of the Origin realm through their saint artifacts. However, that was only the strength of the weakest Origin realm experts. Once they came across true Origin realm experts, it would be very difficult for them to stop them.
"Leave. I am unable to remove this seal," protector Shui said coldly.
Jian Chen became bitter. He had known long ago that the outcome would be like this, but he still felt extremely depressed. Once the seal was removed, Yang Lie and Guihai Yidao would still be able to reach the Origin realm even without origin energy, because they had stored some origin energy in their saint artifacts.
If the seal was not removed, Yang Lie and Guihai Yidao would still not be able to break through even with their origin energy.
"Protector Shui, I order you to remove the seal immediately," Changyang Mingyue said with an irrefutable tone.
Protector Shui dared not to behave as indifferent as she was with Jian Chen. She gently sighed as a sliver of helplessness appeared in her cold eyes. She said, "Your majesty, I really do not have the ability to remove the seal. I may not have cast the seal, but I know who did. It was cast by her majesty. Otherwise, it would have been very difficult for the matters here to avoid the divination of the experts from the Saints' World. Otherwise, quite a few people from the Saints' World would have come looking for your majesty."
Jian Chen was disappointed when he heard that. He had never thought that the seal was actually cast down by the Ice Goddess. The Ice Goddess was a Grand Prime, a supreme expert who stood at the apex of the higher world. Even after ten thousand years, he might not be able to gain the strength to break through a seal cast down by someone so strong.
At the same time, he worried about his sister.
Jian Chen left the Ice Goddess Hall. Although he had not managed to get the seal removed, he had learned exactly who had cast it down as well as who was responsible for the missing history from the ancient era. It was definitely protector Shui's handiwork and her intentions were to prevent anyone from entering the Saints' World and exposing what was happening here, which would have endangered his sister.
Although the method was shocking and extremely brutal, Jian Chen was unable to determine whether protector Shui was right or wrong. If it was himself, what would he have done to protect the people most important to him?
Jian Chen left the icy tundra and returned to the Tian Yuan Continent on his sword. However, Jian Chen suddenly came to a halt at this moment. He gazed into the distance as his eyes shone. He was gazing in the direction of the Wasteland Continent.
Even though the Wasteland Continent was extremely far away, Jian Chen could still sense an extremely tremendous pulse in that direction.
"There's more than ten members of the Hundred Races that have reached Saint Emperor and several dozen are reaching Saint King at the same time…" Jian Chen murmured. He knew that it must have been Tie Ta using the Violet Cloud Peaches to increase the strength of the strongest experts of the Hundred Races, which was why so many people had broken through.
"Tie Ta's already begun to move. I can't fall behind either," Jian Chen said before speeding up. He disappeared into the horizon as a violet streak of light.Chapter Notes:
