Chapter 1666: The Saints' World
The eyes of all the Origin realm experts from the World of Forsaken Saints narrowed as soon as they heard that fairy Hao Yue was the reincarnation of a great expert from the Saints' World. Their faces all changed, while Xiong Zhong who had been displeased with her no longer dared to say anything more.
Shen Jian's gaze towards the Bright Moon Divine Hall changed as well. He could guess from the way fairy Hao Yue spoke that she was probably quite a powerful expert in the Saints' World in the past, or she would not have been able to talk like that.
After the minor incident, no one retorted fairy Hao Yue's words anymore. The Origin realm experts of both worlds who planned on going to the Saints' World all entered the Bright Moon Divine Hall. Even Xiong Zhong and Shangguan Mu'er, who were both at Reciprocity, did not stay outside, which only left Jian Chen and Shen Jian outside.
There were quite a few Origin realm experts from the World of Forsaken Saints, but there were not many who chose to go to the Saints' World. Aside from Xiong Zhong, there were only four other Returnance elders. The other Receival experts all decided to stay behind.
"Since we're all prepared, let's set off," fairy Hao Yue's voice rang out. She was clearly rather eager. She was extremely worried about her father's safety, so she wanted to return to the Saints' World as soon as possible.
"Wait!" Jian Chen suddenly said, before taking out the radiant saint artifact. He removed Kai Ya's crystal casket from it and to no surprise, a fist-sized beast lay on the casket.
"Fairy Hao Yue, please take my friend with you. She should be safer with you than me," said Jian Chen.
The appearance of the crystal casket immediately attracted the attention of all the Origin realm experts present. However, they were not looking at the casket, but the fist-sized beast that was laying on it. They all shivered inside because they could sense the powerful presence of an Origin realm expert from the beast.
Jian Chen did not leave the crystal casket in the artifact space, mainly because of the Seven-colored Heaven-devouring Beast. It had already reached the Origin realm, so it would destroy the artifact space just from the slightest carelessness.
Jian Chen did not dare to place Kai Ya and the Seven-colored Heaven-devouring Beast in the Anatta Tower either as he would never reveal the Anatta Tower after going to the Saints' World. After all, he had not fully refined the Anatta Tower yet. Once he exposed it in the Saints' World, supreme experts might end up sensing the tower's presence.
After waving goodbye to everyone, Jian Chen flew away from the Tian Yuan Continent with Shen Jian. He charged towards the spatial tunnel leading to the Saints' World, while the Bright Moon Divine Hall followed behind them.
You Yue and Bi Lian waved goodbye on the Tian Yuan Continent sorrowfully. They were too weak, so they did not go to the higher world with Jian Chen.
To another side, Qin Qin, Xiao Qian, and Xiao Yue stood together. Qin Qin watched Jian Chen gradually disappear gloomily.
"Master Jian Chen, farewell. I'll probably never see you again from today onwards," thought Qin Qin. Tears rolled down her cheeks uncontrollably as her heart experienced unprecedented pain.
"You have to be careful in the tunnel. You can't be careless at all. Jian Chen, you will protect my Bright Moon Divine Hall. If we encounter any dangers along the way, I'll warn you," fairy Hao Yue's voice rang out from behind. After that, the Bright Moon Divine Hall immediately shrank to the size of a fist, which Jian Chen then grabbed in his hand.
"Zi Ying, Qing Suo, I'm going to the Saints' World. Things can only be difficult for you for now," Jian Chen said to the sword spirits. Then he placed his hand gently on the twin swords. With a flash of light, the swords vanished, having merged into Jian Chen's palm. They remained in his dantian.
Jian Chen already had the ability to store the twin swords in his body for quite some time now, except leaving the swords in contact with the world allowed them to absorb the yin and yang energies in the world, which was beneficial to their recovery. However, he could no longer afford to keep them exposed now that he was going to the Saints' World.
Jian Chen carried the Bright Moon Divine Hall in his left hand as he travelled alongside Shen Jian. They entered the tunnel together, leaving their original worlds.
The tunnel to the Saints' World was not composed of chaos but balls of multi-colored hues. They formed long streaks of multi-colored streams, filling every corner of the tunnel.
At the same time, an extremely tremendous pressure crushed in from all directions. The pressure was so great that it could kill Saint Emperors. Only Origin realm experts could withstand it.
Jian Chen and Shen Jian endured the pressure easily, carefully making their way through the spatial tunnel. They looked around out of curiosity. When Jian Chen saw the multi-colored hues that filled the tunnel, he immediately saw his landscape changing, varying between light and dark. Through the hues, he seemed to see worlds flash by blurrily. Each world was different. Each world possessed its own systems and cultures. Sometimes, he could even see the battle between experts of various levels in the worlds. Some were powerful, while others were weak. They could be as weak as Sainthood experts, or even Mortal realm experts, but he would also see battles between Origin realm experts as well.
However, the images were extremely blurry and changed exceptionally quickly. Each image would appear and disappear in a split second, making it impossible to discern whether they were actually real or not.
"What you see is all true because we're currently moving through space at an unbelievable speed. Every world we pass by projects a shadow," fairy Hao Yue's voice rang out in Jian Chen's head.
Jian Chen was secretly shocked when he heard that. He had already seen the images of countless worlds. If each image represented an entire world, he truly had no idea just how many he had already passed.
"Although I already knew that there were extremely many lower worlds, now that I've truly witnessed how many there are, it's just indescribable. The Tian Yuan Continent I stayed on in the past is only one of the images among all of these," Jian Chen thought.
Jian Chen and Shen Jian completely lost the notion of time as they moved through the tunnel. They had no idea just how long they had been travelling for. Along the way, they would come across chaotic spatial streams, but they would avoid it safely. Finally, they saw the exit of the tunnel.
There were barren plains, stretching as far as the eye could see. Apart from some huge birds that shot through the sky with lightning speed, there was not a single living thing to be seen.
But at this moment, the space in the sky suddenly distorted violently. A huge Space Gate suddenly appeared, and two figures fell out from it, hitting the land heavily and kicking up a cloud of dust.
