Chapter 1891: The Greatest Overgod Clan
After giving the Origin-gathering Flower to Xi Yu, Jian Chen left for the forbidden grounds in the clan.
Xi Yu held the Origin-gathering Flower. Even though she understood its value, were even many Godkings did not possess it, she was not paying any attention to it at all. Her eyes were in a slight daze as she stared at Jian Chen's back, all the way until Jian Chen vanished from her vision.
At this moment, the effects of the Origin-gathering Flower were fully displayed. A mysterious suction seemed to affect the dense origin energy that had gathered within the Tian Yuan clan at that moment. It began to gather from all directions, arriving around the Origin-gathering Flower in Xi Yu's hands. The origin energy around the flower had turned into a mist, as it was extremely tremendous in quantity.
The people who had followed Jian Chen up from the lower world basically all cultivated in the forbidden grounds of the clan.
Jian Chen had once spent much effort and resources to design the forbidden grounds. As a result, the origin energy there was the densest in the clan. There was a faint white mist in the entire area.
The white mist was no regular mist. Rather, it was the materialisation of origin energy once it had reached a certain concentration.
In the forbidden grounds, Jian Chen sat by himself at a stone table. He made tea for himself and sipped it slowly. He seemed to be at leisure, but his face did not seem relaxed at all.
His brows would furrow and unfurrow from time to time. He seemed to be in thought as a sliver of worry would appear on his face from time to time as well. Something seemed to weigh on his heart.
"Now that the Tian Yuan clan has gained a stable footing in the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian, it really hasn't been easy. I hope we can make it through the large scale invasion from the three armies of the Empyrean Demon Cult," Jian Chen said to himself softly. He felt very pressured when the three armies of the Empyrean Demon Cult advanced together towards the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian.
This was because he was not alone. There were quite a few powerful clans behind him with many people. It had not been easy for him to set up everything in the Dong'an province. It would be best if he did not have to let it all go.
At this moment, there was a flash of gold light. The golden-robed Nubis suddenly appeared before Jian Chen. He did not act politely at all, sitting before Jian Chen by himself. He picked up Jian Chen's tea and poured himself and cup. He said, "Brother Jian Chen, you're a busybody now. It really is hard to see you in the clan. In the past few decades, I've only seen you a few times at most."
Jian Chen smiled helplessly, "We've all reached Godhood. If we cultivate in seclusion, a hundred years can pass in the blink of an eye and a thousand years feels like ten seconds. What are a few decades in comparison? From today onwards, not seeing me for thousands or even tens of thousand years will be commonplace."
"That does seem reasonable," Nubis nodded in agreement. He looked at Jian Chen and continued, "Though, I don't think you've called me, the great Nubis, over alone just to catch up on the past together. There must be something else."
"That's right. I've called you over today to give you something," said Jian Chen. He directly tossed a Space Ring to Nubis.
Nubis did not mind it too much. To him, Jian Chen's gift was probably divine crystals or heavenly resources.
However, when he saw what was in the Space Ring, he immediately paled in fright. He jumped up out of shock as surprise filled his face.
"Oh my lord, w- w- w- what is this thing? Jian Chen, w- where did you get this?" Nubis' eyes widened as he stared at Jian Chen in intense shock. Disbelief filled his face.
"I- it's actually so powerful. It's dead, yet it still has such a terrifying presence. I- I must have seen wrong. I must have seen wrong," Nubis murmured. His voice trembled slightly as he rubbed his eyes forcefully. He was tempted to stick his entire head into the Space Ring to get a clear look at it.
In the end, after confirming it many times, he had to accept that what he saw was real.
The item in the Space Ring was the corpse of the Golden-striped Silver Snake from the Yin Mountains of Sevens Despair. It was a late Godking.
"If I remember correctly, this should be of great use to you," said Jian Chen.
Nubis nodded furiously. He said excitedly, "It's not just of great use. It's basically a huge fortune to me. If I absorb his hidden essence, my bloodline will become even more powerful and even more terrifying. My strength will undergo an overwhelming transformation as well. Jian Chen, where did you get this corpse from? It must have been an Overgod before it died at the very least."
Jian Chen shook his head, "It was a late Godking before it died, except an expert that was even more terrifying killed it. I only managed to salvage the corpse."
"What! A late Godking!" Nubis was dumbfounded.
Godkings were figures of legends to him.
Jian Chen's face suddenly became stern. He said, "The background of this Golden-striped Silver Snake is extraordinary. In order to avoid a nightmare, please absorb the hidden essence as quickly as you can and destroy the corpse afterwards. You can't leave any trace of it, or we'll be in deep trouble."
Nubis understood the severity of the matter when he saw how stern Jian Chen was. He said, "Don't worry, I, the great Nubis, will never disappoint you. Let's not waste time. I'll go into seclusion right now."
Nubis left in an excited hurry.
Jian Chen was also filled with eagerness as he watched Nubis leave. He had no idea just what level of strength Nubis would reach once he absorbed all the hidden essence within the late Godking Golden-striped Silver Snake.
However, there was one thing he was certain about. Once Nubis emerged from seclusion, his strength would have undergone an overwhelming transformation. It would have increased drastically.
At this moment, Jian Chen's face grew serious. He stared in the direction where Shangguan Mu'er was cultivating before immediately activating all the formations in the forbidden grounds, isolating it from the outside world.
After Jian Chen completed all that, an extremely powerful presence erupted from where Shangguan Mu'er cultivated.
The presence was so powerful that it should have shaken up the entire provincial city. However, due to the isolation through the formations, none of the presence managed to make it out.
All the people cultivating in the forbidden grounds were alarmed. They emerged from their rooms and stared in Shangguan Mu'er's direction. Envy and joy filled their faces.
Shangguan Mu'er had finally broken through at that moment. She had broken free from the chains of being a God, becoming an Overgod!
"Fantastic. Mu'er has become an Overgod as well. Coupled with Shan Jian, the Tian Yuan clan already has three Overgods," Jian Chen murmured to himself excitedly.
In the neighboring divine kingdoms, even the most powerful clans possessed two Overgods at most.
However, after just a few short decades of being founded, the Tian Yuan clan already possessed three Overgods. Coupled with Jian Chen's battle prowess, which was enough for him to stand supreme among Overgods, the Tian Yuan clan had unknowingly become the greatest Overgod clan in the region.
