Chapter 692: Conversation
Houston nodded slightly, "Correct. I believe the peace of our Tian Yuan Continent will be shattered in the not-so distant future.
"Looks like you've also guessed that the matter of the Gilligan clan against the Winged Tiger God is much more complicated. That's true, peace will be broken soon and the silent guardian clans will all appear once again. Houston, I know you've already retired from the Tian Yuan Continent for a thousand years, but you are still a human expert who stands on the peak. When the Beast God Continent invades, I hope that your Bloodsword sect will be able to support our Tian Yuan Continent, to make a contribution to the human race." Tian Jian said solemnly to Houston.
Houston nodded calmly, "You don't have to worry. Although I, Houston, have once sworn that I would never interfere with the matters of the Tian Yuan Continent again a thousand years ago, this regards the safety of the human race. I definitely will not stand down."
"That'll be good. With your Bloodsword sect helping, our power in resisting the Beast God Continent will increase quite a lot. Although we know that the Beast God Continent is coming for the Winged Tiger God, we definitely can't let them obtain it. I think that the king of the Beast God Continent wants to seize the growing Winged Tiger God and forcefully possess its body."
"Looks like you've thought into this more than me. Originally, I thought that king of Beast God Continent wanted to kill the young Winged Tiger God to maintain his position in power. Looks like it's much more complicated that I imagined." Houston sighed.
"It indeed is much more complicated than you have imagined." Tian Jian looked deeply into Houston. He hesitated slightly before continuing, "Houston, perhaps you don't know, but the previous Winged Tiger God had once left a shrine on the Beast God Continent in the ancient times and he left his legacy in the shrine. However, other than Winged Tiger Gods, no other magical beast is able to enter it, unless their strength surpasses the one that created it, in which they can just forcefully break through the shrine's barrier. As for the king of Beast God Continent, once it possess the body of the Winged Tier God, he can successfully inherit the legacy, very possibly reaching the strength that the ancient Winged Tiger God had reached. At that time, we humans will no longer possess the power to resist at all."
Houston's expression became extremely serious. Floating mid-air, he said nothing and only after a long time did he give a deep sigh at the sky, "Looks like we definitely have to use all our strength to protect this Winged Tiger God. We mustn't let the Beast God Continent obtain it. Now that we humans no longer have an expert like Mo Tianyun, once the king of Beast God Continent possesses the body of the Winged Tiger God, even the path lord of carnal desires wouldn't be his opponent.
Hearing the name, Tian Jian furrowed his brows. Pausing for a moment, he said, "Don't rely on the path lord of carnal desires. That renegade was expelled from the Pure Heart Pavilion and walks a path of desire, indulging in the seven emotions and six desires. If he knows about the Winged Tiger God, perhaps he'll immediately go and try take it for himself."
"The behaviour of the lord may be despicable, but he really is a great genius. At least, he is the only person of the Tian Yuan Continent who can resist against the king of Beast God Continent. Perhaps in the future when the Beast God Continent invades, we'll need to rely on the path lord to fend him off." Houston muttered to himself.
"Ai." Tian Jian sighed softly and waved his hands, "Houston, our conversation today ends here. In the future when the Beast God Continent displays signs of movement, we can discuss about it with the people from the ten guardian clans. Anyway, the better kept the secret of the Winged Tiger God, the better it is for the Tian Yuan Continent. As for the current moment, we should pour all our power into the growth of the Winged Tiger God. Right now, it's just too weak."
"These years, your Mercenary City should have amassed a lot of heavenly material treasures, so giving your Mercenary City the task of helping the Winged Tiger God grow is most suitable. Also, you should stay behind and handle the rest of the stuff that happened here. You're more suitable than me." Finishing his sentence, Houston turned around and disappeared through the Space Gate. As for Tian Jian, he just stood there.
Tian Jian looked at the unconscious Jian Chen on the ground with a complicated gaze. Afterwards, he sighed lightly and with the wave of his hand, Jian Chen and the Winged Tiger God immediately began to float, passing through a Space Gate behind Tian Jian.
Amidst the Flame Mercenaries, Ming Dong's group currently remained gathered together in the hall, anxious to find a way to save Jian Chen. Even though they had several Saint Rulers around, they were weak like ants in front of a Saint King. Even if they worked together, they definitely were not a Saint King's opponent.
Just at this moment, the space in the hall suddenly began to warp without any prior warnings. Before anyone could react, a Space Gate quickly formed and Tian Jian gently floated out of it. Beside his side, the unconscious Jian Chen was entrusted to an invisible power, slowly lowered to the ground.
"Uncle Tian!" Seeing the middle-aged man, Ming Dong was greatly excited and immediately began to call out aloud. Shortly afterwards, he rushed and grabbed Tian Jian's arm affectionately. He glanced over at the heavily-injured and unconscious Jian Chen, "Uncle Tian, you've finally come. I just know you were going to appear. How is Jian Chen? Is he okay?"
Facing Ming Dong, Tian Jian struggled to maintain is indifferent expression and could not help but reveal a warm smile. He looked at Ming Dong lovingly, "Child, you don't need to worry. Jian Chen is fine." Towards Ming Dong, Tian Jian showed extra affection.
"I pay respects to the grand elder!" Jiede Tai and Nubis both recognised Tian Jian. Without any more delays, they immediately bowed. Their expressions were filled with respect.
"Junior Bi Hai pays respects to grand elder. I thank the grand elder very much for saving my great-grandson." Bi Hai did not hesitate at all and bowed respectfully to Tian Jian. With what had happened last time in the sky about the tungsten alloy mine, he had seen the grand elder personally, so he was not unfamiliar as to who he was.
