Chapter 833: The Tian Yuan Continent’s Situation
“Master Jian Chen, I never thought your real name would be Changyang Xiangtian. Everyone on the Tian Yuan Continent is looking for you right now. I wonder if you are still doing well,” murmured Qin Qin, the young lady of the Tianqin clan.
“Jian Chen, you must hide well. You can’t be discovered by them. You promised to go wandering about the continent with me. I, Qin Xiao, believe you are a man of your word. You cannot make me disappointed.” Under house arrest, Qin Xiao sat by himself in a room, drinking in his depression. He spoke with an extremely faint voice.
In a bustling first class city, several dozen burly men gathered in a luxurious estate, cultivating. They all radiated with a fierce aura that reeked of blood. It was an aura that was only present on people who killed very often.
“Captain, the whole city’s filled with public notices searching for you. It’s a pity we’re too weak so we’re of no help at all. But we will definitely work hard on our cultivation. When we’re strong enough, we’ll stand side-by-side with the captain and slaughter foes for the captain.” In one of the room, middle-aged man said this with a deep voice. His eyes flickered with a determined light.
At the same time, a similar voice appeared in various places on the luxurious estate. They were the earliest group of members from the Flame Mercenaries. Their loyalty to Jian Chen had been tested through near-death experiences. They had been promoted to core members by Jian Chen long ago, where he poured resources to raise them without holding back at all.
Currently, the several dozen people had already become a group with extraordinary strength. Most of them had already become Earth Saint Masters, with only a few that were still Great Saint Masters.
In the Holy Empire, the president of the Radiant Saint Master Union stood on the fifth floor of the headquarters castle, staring outside at the scenery. His eyebrows were furrowed in worry.
He had spent the entire past three months filled with worry. The anxiety in him had already affected his appearance, making him seem much older.
The news of losing the union artifact was contained, only limited to a few people. It did not spread. However, the president knew that paper was unable to contain fire; the fact that the saint artifact was lost could not be hidden for over a year, even though it was temporarily contained. This was because in a few months, the top ten competitors would be preparing to enter the artifact to absorb the origin energy of Radiant Saint Force. At that time, the loss of the artifact would be announced as of a result.
“I wonder just where Jian Chen is. My union cannot go on without the artifact.” The president sighed softly, while the worry on his face deepened.
At this very moment, the door of the room was opened. The white-robed grand elder walked in, his face also filled with worry. “President, we definitely can’t announce that the artifact is lost. When the competitors plan to enter it in a few month’s time, we will need to find an excuse to delay the time to absorb the origin energy if we can’t recover the artifact.”
The president pondered silently for a very long time before nodding. “We can only do that. This is perhaps the best action we can take right now.”
In a class two city within the Holy Empire, a white-robed female sat all by herself in the pavilion of a garden on a huge, luxurious property. She sat there blankly, staring at the fishes that swam back and forth.
The woman seemed to be around twenty years of age. She possessed an alluring appearance and radiated with a noble and sacred aura.
A middle-aged man in tight clothing hurried over from a distance behind the woman. He knelt on one leg outside the pavilion and said, “I greet the first young lady!”
“What’s happened with the matter I told you to go investigate about? Has the union’s artifact been recovered?” Kara Liwei said without even looking back, her voice extremely cold.
“Replying to young miss, the union has not recovered the artifact,” the man said.
Kara Liwei went silent for a while before replying, “I understand now. You are dismissed.”
“This one bids farewell!” The middle-aged man backed off courteously.
After the man left, Kara Liwei sighed gently. She slowly walked over to a stone bench in the pavilion and sat down. Her eyebrows furrowed with a sliver of worry and she murmured, “I just never thought that the artifact of the union would be taken away by Yang Yutian. Without the artifact, how will I reach Class 7?”
In the sky of the northern sea, a white-robed, middle-aged man currently rode a cloud completely condensed from Radiant Saint Force. This man was ttraveling toward the depths of the ocean with an exhausted expression. He was Yun Tian.
Three months ago, Yun Tian left the union. With a few setbacks along the way, he finally left the continent, arriving at the sea after three months of traveling. He was looking for the experts who searched for the Winged Tiger God.
“Yang Yutian, I don’t care if you’re a Radiant Saint Master or a fighter. I, Yun Tian, won’t let you have it easy no matter what. I wonder what the experts from the Beast God Continent would do after they learn that the Winged Tiger God is with you. I reckon they’d seize your family to threaten you. Hahaha, Yang Yutian, I don’t care if you’re a Saint Ruler or a member of the ten protector clans, before the experts of the Beast God Continent, you’re nothing. If they want to crush you, it’s no more difficult than crushing an ant.” Yun Tian laughed viciously. Currently, his eyes were bloodshot while his face was haggard. He was already losing part of sanity and soon after, the light in his eyes disappeared. He directly fell from the sky, toward the vast ocean.
Yun Tian had already hurried over the ocean without resting for several days. As a Radiant Saint Master, his body was fragile and there were no islands in the ocean which he could rest on. As a result, after severals days of traveling without rest, combined with the exhaustion of three months of travel earlier, he could not last any longer. He directly fell unconscious, falling toward the ocean. Meanwhile, he continued to murmur words about the Beast God Continent, the Winged Tiger God, and Jian Chen from time to time.
“Hmm? There’s actually a human here and he seems to be a Radiant Saint Master. Interesting, interesting- what! The Beast God Continent!? The Winged Tiger God!?”
Semi-conscious, Yun Tian seemed to hear an astounded voice. Shortly afterward, he seemed to feel his body being picked out of the ocean by a great hand.
After an unknown period of time, Yun Tian discovered that he was lying in a luxurious palace as he slowly woke up.
“Human, you’ve finally awoken!” Suddenly, a heavy voice boomed.
Yun Tian stood up from the ground with some difficulty, looking around. He discovered that several people of varying ages stood on both sides, while at the very end of the hall boldly sat a dignified middle-aged man.
“Who are you? Where is this place?” Yun Tian stared at all the people around him vigilantly, crying out.
The middle-aged man who sat at the very end sneered. “I am one of the three emperors of the Beast God Continent, tiger emperor Lankyros!”
“What, an emperor of the Beast God Continent!” With that, Yun Tian was shocked. He stared at the people in the hall with dread. “Are you all experts of the Beast God Continent?”
An odd smile formed on Lankyros’ face. “Human, you have two choices right now. The first would be telling me everything you know regarding the Winged Tiger God and using that to exchange for your life. The second would be dying.”
“The first, the first, I choose the first. I indeed know quite a lot about the Winged Tiger God. I’ll tell you all about it,” Yun Tian said with no hesitation. Did he not travel such a long distance just to tell these experts this information?
Very soon, Yun Tian told everything he knew to the Beast God Continent experts. He placed emphasis on Jian Chen and the Changyang clan when he mentioned them, and also explained the fact that the Winged Tiger God was with Jian Chen in detail.
“Jian Chen. The Changyang clan,” Lankyros murmured quietly. Shortly afterward, a cold smile formed on his face. He stood up from his throne and said, “Everyone, it just happens to be that the three months have passed. Send orders down for everyone to go to the Tian Yuan Continent with me immediately.”
The experts immediately left the island which they had stayed on for three months, leaving behind Yun Tian. With their departure, the grand palace also collapsed with a loud sound, turning into pieces of tough rock.
Not long afterward, another intense battle erupted in the northern seas. It was so intense that even the sky darkened as of a result, causing the sun and moon to dull. The magical beasts from the Beast God Continent wanted to enter the Tian Yuan Continent in search of the Winged Tiger God, but they were met with the intense resistance of the ten protector clans and Mercenary City. The experts from the Beast God Continent were repelled beyond the northern ocean.
A few minute changes did indeed occur to the relationship between the protector Changyang clan and the other clans but the protector clans and Mercenary City worked unprecedentedly united in repelling the Beast God Continent.”
“The resistance of the Tian Yuan Continent is futile. When the ruler comes out of seclusion, the great army of the Beast God Continent will end the days of the Tian Yuan Continent.”
The people that Lankyros had brought were not the opponents of the ten protector clans. Additionally, he himself was not as powerful as the path lord of carnal desires, so all he could do was throw down a threat before returning to the Beast God Hall on the Beast God Continent.
When Lankyros returned, he immediately arrived outside the door of the ninety-eighth floor. He narrated everything that had happened at the Tian Yuan Continent, with no deviation to what had actually happened.
“Five years. I only need five years. I can make a breakthrough in five years and at that time, I’ll definitely make the Tian Yuan Continent pay a heavy price. I’ll let the Winged Tiger God stay on that continent for a little longer. An extremely overbearing voice boomed from the ninety-eighth floor.
In the blink of an eye, several more months passed by. Currently, the white-robed artifact spirit stood outside the hall in which Jian Chen was cultivating. He said, “Master, the seal of the origin energy will be released in two hours.”
