Is (Wielder of the Will Liquid Metal Ball] studying the divine ghost fragment?
What does it want to do?
Song Shuhang was a little curious, but he immediately focused and tried to maintain a clear state of mind.
His dreamland ability was very strange. It wasn’t something as simple as becoming someone else while asleep.
When he entered a dreamland, if the person he was dreaming of came in contact with a powerful Tribulation Transcender or Immortal, there was a certain chance that he would be sensed by the other party.
The liquid metal ball was the Wielder of the Heaven’s Will, the most powerful existence in the entire universe. There had been times before when Tribulation Transcenders and Immortals would sense Song Shuhang, so the Wielder of the Will would definitely be able to do so as well.
Song Shuhang strived to maintain a clear mind and allow himself to be a ‘bystander’ in hopes of avoiding attracting the attention of the Wielder of the Will Liquid Metal Ball.
The liquid metal ball rolled over to an instrument at the side, and several tentacles stretched out from it, which then pressed crazily on the interface.
The liquid metal ball softly said, “The memories that can be acquired from this fragment are very chaotic… Among them, the only ones that have any use are the methods by which the Third Wielder of the Will constructed a new world and some messy methods of rebirth. However, these are not what I want. Now that I have already become the Wielder of the Heaven’s Will, why would I want to escape the duties that come with my position? The only thing I need to do now is to complete myself.”
It couldn’t understand the point of the various escape plans designed by the Third Wielder of the Will. Since he had become a Wielder of the Will, obtaining an eternal body, why would he want to leave his position?
(Wielder of the Will Liquid Metal Ball] could not understand the thoughts of the Third Wielder of the Will and the other various Wielders.
At this time, it has already become the Wielder of the Heaven’s Will, and the Sage has long been defeated. However, the Sage seems to have managed to gnaw away at a part of its existence before dying. A thought flashed in Song Shuhang’s mind before he quickly concealed his consciousness.
The liquid metal ball wondered, “Still… The Third Wielder of the Will’s divine ghost project and his method of constructing a new world might be able to sort out a way to supplement my flaws.”
The liquid metal ball entered a ‘thinking’ mode, and it transformed into a tall humanoid figure made of metal.
After that, it began to twist around and dance a strange dance.
It danced while thinking about life, finding inspiration as it danced.
Whether it was (Wielder of the Will Liquid Metal Ball) or the Netherworld’s Fat Ball, they both loved to dance.
As the Liquid Metal Ball was the Wielder of the Heaven’s Will, as it danced, visions and phenomena accompanied it. For example, auspicious clouds emerged, heavenly music sounded, golden lotuses grew… and more.
The Wielder of the Will was an existence that had its own soundtrack and light effects.
After dancing, (Wielder of the Will Liquid Metal Ball] stopped and shrank into a ball again.
The liquid metal ball said, “Since the problem is that there is a part of myself that is missing and irretrievable, then I’ll have to substitute that part with the parts of other creatures.”
Hundreds of arms stretched out from its body, and they began to unceasingly write in the air.
Song Shuhang could not recognize the words it was writing.
The liquid metal ball constantly wrote, modified, and revised the text.
During this time, it would occasionally disappear—was it fulfilling its duties as the Wielder of the Will?
Anyway, when it returned, it would get right back to revising the text in the air.
If it had spare time, it would cut out a part from the divine ghost fragment and research it, and if not that, it would go through the memories it had acquired from the fragment.
In this way, more than a year passed. During this year, Song Shuhang was in constant fear, afraid that his existence would attract the attention of (Wielder of the Will Liquid Metal Ball).
Many times he suspected that the Liquid Metal Ball had already discovered and simply ignored him.
Or, could it be that the Liquid Metal Ball directly regarded him, who was in the divine ghost fragment, as Cheng Lin’s consciousness? In short, Song Shuhang lived through this year.
(Wielder of the Will Liquid Metal Ball] suddenly said, “It’s done.”
In front of him, there was an entire text written in the script of the ancient era. There were so many characters that the entire thing covered the whole research room.
Song Shuhang was illiterate when it came to this script, but for over a year, he had used the powerful memory of a cultivator to forcibly remember all of the ancient runes as patterns and had kept them in mind.
The Liquid Metal Ball softly said, “Wielder of the Heaven’s Will Completion Plan… Heavenly City Project.”
Heavenly City Project? Song Shuhang’s heart skipped a beat.
Was the naming a coincidence? Or, was this ‘Heavenly City Project’ referring to the Ancient Heavenly City?
The Liquid Metal Ball softly said, “This whole project is feasible. The only thing I need to carry out this project is a ‘protagonist’. This protagonist will create the Heavenly City, integrate it with the path of Immortals, and complete what I lack.”
After saying that, the Liquid Metal Ball opened a box.
There were many eyes inside the box: big ones, small ones, all sorts of eyes.
The Liquid Metal Ball said, “The experimental products of the second Wielder of the Will… With them, I can save myself a lot of time and skip some steps.”
Out of all of the Wielders of the Heaven’s Will, the Liquid Metal Ball was the most special one.
When the other Wielders had been proving themselves, almost every one of them did so by being showy and suppressing the entire universe. Almost every single one of them was a Scholarly Sage-like existence-cool, very cool, cool to the extreme.
They would defeat all the practitioners in the world and ascend to the position of the Wielder of the Will with incredible momentum.
The Liquid Metal Ball could not compare to the Scholarly Sage in battle prowess, and even though it became the Wielder of the Will, part of its existence was gnawed away. It was the only Wielder of the Will that was ‘lacking’ something
After becoming the Wielder of the Will, the Liquid Metal Ball began its search for ways to remedy its lacking parts.
As soon as it became the Wielder, it used its authority to collect many treasures left over by previous Wielders of the Heaven’s Will.
It collected some of the treasures of the Second, Third, and Sixth Wielder of the Will.
The First Wielder of the Heaven’s Will remained a mystery, with them being from a time that was too long ago. There were no records of them anywhere in the universe. The Liquid Metal Ball suspected that before the First Wielder of the Will ‘disappeared’, they had taken the initiative to erase all information about them. Even the Liquid Metal Ball could not find anything related to them.
The Second Wielder of the Will had similarly erased traces of their name. However, they still left a lot of things, such as the primordial treasure ‘big-eyed planet’ that wandered the universe while preaching.
The Liquid Metal Ball had once seized this primordial treasure to conduct research on it for some period of time, but nothing substantial came out of that research. The treasure was a weapon; it should have been something that the Second Wielder of the Will could not bear to destroy, and ended up leaving behind before disappearing.
In addition to the ‘big-eyed planet’, the Second Wielder of the Will had also left behind a great number of eye-type experimental products of various levels. High-grade ones like Demon Eye Kings had the capability of becoming Tribulation Transcenders, while low-grade ones like Spongy Eye Monsters were only First Stage creatures. There were also some unique existences such as cyclops, seabed giant-eyed pseudo deities, and the sort.
It could be seen from this that the Second Wielder of the Will had a special interest in ‘eyes’.
Then, there was the Third Wielder of the Will, who had left behind an even greater number of things. From these things, the Liquid Metal Ball inferred that the Third Wielder of the Will should have had the form of a (dragon).
Some of the things that were left behind were the golden lotus and the black lotus. These two objects were once key items for a plan of the Third Wielder of the Will to free himself, but there was a huge chance that this plan was flawed, causing him to ultimately abandon it.
Besides that, there were the fragments of the ‘divine ghost’ that it was currently studying.
There was also the mysterious ‘Nine Virtues Phoenix Saber’.
In addition, the Third Wielder of the Will had created countless large and small spaces during his tenure. These spaces were all by-products of his experiment on the golden lotus and the black lotus.
Only the Wielders of the Will had access to these spaces.
Later, after some further improvements and reinforcement by the succeeding Wielders of the Will, these large and small spaces eventually became small black rooms.
Compared to the Second Wielder of the Will, who was obsessed with eyes, the Third Wielder of the Will was more like an inventor and researcher. His inventions and research involved many aspects, and he was an all-rounder.
There was not much left behind by the Fourth and Fifth Wielders of the Heaven’s Will. For the Liquid Metal Ball, who was set on completing itself, the things left behind by the Fourth and Fifth Wielders of the Will were of little to no interest, and had a low research value.
The Sixth Wielder of the Will was another very special existence. Almost every Wielder of the Will had obtained their position by suppressing the entire universe.
The Liquid Metal Ball was an exception to this, and the Sixth Wielder of the Will was also an exception. Furthermore, the Sixth had been even more exceptional than the Liquid Metal Ball.
According to the research of the Liquid Metal Ball, the way by which the Sixth Wielder of the Will acquired his position was by trading. That’s right, it turned out that the position of Wielder of the Will could also be obtained through trading.
As for the things that were left behind by the Sixth Wielder of the Will, there were three types to them. The first type was related to the power virtue. As there were some creatures with bodies made of virtue, they had some research value. And so, [Wielder of the Will Liquid Metal Ball) had collected some.
The second type was a primordial treasure. This was another primordial treasure with little research value. Apart from having the highest non-spatial flight speed in the universe, it didn’t have anything else to it.
The third type was related to ‘trading’, and did not have any research value, either.
The Seventh Wielder of the Will was the one right before the Liquid Metal Ball. This Wielder of the Will had suddenly left his position due to no longer being interested.
(This one was a fool.] The Liquid Metal Ball said this about his predecessor.
The Liquid Metal Ball took out a handful of eyeballs. “The experimental products of the Second Wielder of the Will can be turned into great subordinates after some modifications.”
It placed an eyeball into a coffin-like instrument.
“I will have this one assume human form… It shall be the one to lead the ‘Heavenly City Project’.” The Liquid Metal Ball then placed the lid on the instrument.
While speaking, its mind stirred.
“The scholarly faction was destroyed, and the responsible is the other ‘me’ in the Netherworld Realm.” The Liquid Metal Ball’s body shook gently to express its disapproval. “Destroying the scholarly faction is a waste of time. It would have been better to use that time to study the remains of the Scholarly Sage and see if there was anything worth researching in there. Anyway, since the scholarly faction was destroyed, I should make the best use of this opportunity.” After saying that, it opened the coffin instrument.
From within it, a humanoid creature crawled out.
The arms of this humanoid creature were covered with large and small eyes.
The Liquid Metal Ball said, “The Heavenly City Project begins… Well, I guess I will have to first test the feasibility of this project.”
This humanoid creature stood blankly in front of the Liquid Metal Ball. It was breathing, had a heartbeat, and an aura of life, but it seemed to be soulless and rigid.
The Liquid Metal Ball stretched out its hand and brought it over.
“The final step… In order to have it adapt to the laws of the universe, it would be best to have it go through the process of ‘reincarnation and growth’.” After saying that, the Liquid Metal Ball reached out and opened a spatial gate.
This humanoid creature was shrunk down until it was the size of a small dot, then thrown into the spatial gate, and it was gone just like that.
Song Shuhang watched the entire process. That guy with eyes on both of his hands… Wasn’t he that Immortal from the Ancient Heavenly City, the one chasing after Cheng Lin? However, wasn’t he a monster hunter? In addition, I remember that this guy had brought over some monster hunters, and destroyed the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion. Song Shuhang’s mind stirred.
This guy… was a creation of a Wielder of the Will?
After doing this, the Liquid Metal Ball disappeared, and went to deal with its duties as the Wielder of the Will.
But this time, when it was away, Song Shuhang’s ‘divine ghost fragment’ was not studied or cut apart.
Then, several years passed. The liquid metal ball seemed to have forgotten about the ‘Heavenly City Project’.
In the past few years, everything in the research room had come to a halt.
Song Shuhang experienced being a ‘green onion’ again.
Besides boredom, there was only other boredom.
At this moment, he missed the days when he was cut apart and studied. Come on, don’t pity me, come and study me! So bored, I really want to be studied.
During the past few years, in his boredom, he went through the timeline in his mind.
The former Wielder of the Will retired.
The Scholarly Sage and the Liquid Metal Ball competed for the position of the Wielder of the Will.
After the Liquid Metal Ball became the Wielder of the Heaven’s Will, it found that part of it was lacking, and began making plans to make up for what it lacked.
During this time, the scholarly faction was flattened by the ‘ruler of the Netherworld’, Liquid Metal Ball Two.
Afterward, the monster hunter that had likely destroyed the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion and was chasing after Cheng Lin, the Immortal with jet-black arms covered in eyes, came about.
If the various guesses were correct… The destruction of the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion should have happened within this time, with one of Fairy Cheng Lin’s fragments hibernating in Ye Si’s body.
By estimation, these events all occurred within ten years.
The destruction of the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion was probably related to the Liquid Metal Ball’s ‘Heavenly City Project’.
Song Shuhang sighed.
Time flew by.
Dust accumulated on Song Shuhang’s body. He only knew that the time he spent in this ‘research room’ was probably not much shorter than the time he had spent rooted on that mountain as Lady Onion.
Another 100 years. During this time, his will became a lot firmer. In addition to that, he could now clear his mind at any time.
How long is this going to take?
When is this dreamland going to end?
Did the Liquid Metal Ball forget about the ‘Heavenly City Project’? At this time, the door to the research room opened, and the Liquid Metal Ball rolled in.
It still carried the majesty of the Wielder of the Will, but this time there was a mechanical feel to it.
It softly said, “107 experimental products have been used, and none of them succeeded. Could it be that the protagonist of the ‘Heavenly City’ can only be a divine ghost fragment of the Third Wielder of the Will? However, these fragments do not belong to me… The hidden dangers are too great.”
