Chapter 452: Scorpion’s Request
When one sees a fellow countryman, one’s eyes tend to well up with tears.
Chen Chen now had this feeling. The last time he experienced it was when he met Grandmaster Qing Mu.
Not far away, the Heavenly Scorpion slowly sat up and glanced at its useless subordinate. The big Heavenly Scorpion did not realize what it had done wrong at all, it said, “Your Excellency, if you have any other instructions, just call me directly. I will take my leave now!”
After saying that, the giant Heavenly Scorpion began to drill into the ground crazily. The sand was hundreds of meters high. If Chen Chen had not opened the spiritual energy barrier, he would have been covered in dust.
Chen Chen was even more speechless. Even if this Heavenly Scorpion was a descendant of a true spirit, it could not escape from the scope of a demonic beast. It really was not bright.
The Heavenly Scorpion seemed to be used to it. It slowly got up from the ground and spoke to Chen Chen.
Chen Chen could only agree and silently follow behind it.
As the saying goes, accompanying a king is like accompanying a tiger. The same applies to accompanying a true spirit.
He did not know what kind of mentality the Heavenly Scorpion had, but he knew that he had to take the initiative. He could not entrust his life to the other party’s mood.
After taking a few steps, the Heavenly Scorpion rose into the air. A powerful spiritual energy flow surged out from its back. This flow of air carried Chen Chen and the giant crab sea monster as it flew at an indescribable speed.
Chen Chen could even feel the surrounding space trembling. No matter how fast it was, the space would collapse.
More importantly, the Heavenly Scorpion did not seem to use its full strength. It just flew casually!
The true spirit was really terrifying!
A moment later, the Heavenly Scorpion brought Chen Chen into an underground palace.
This underground palace was extremely huge, but the decorations were quite simple. It was surrounded by sand walls, and in the corners of the walls, there were some strange-shaped objects.
There were strange demon beast corpses, white-glowing cultivator bones, and some things that looked like puppets.
It seemed that the Heavenly Scorpion was a collector.
When he reached the depths of the underground palace, Chen Chen saw a strangely-shaped spiritual wood bed.
But that was not the main point. The main point was that there was a small black hole above the spiritual wood bed that led to an unknown world.
The sound of a breeze blowing through the forest could be heard from within, followed by a few bird chirps.
When the Heavenly Scorpion heard this sound, the corners of his mouth curled up again as if he was very happy.
When Chen Chen saw this scene, his mood was rather complicated.
This big shot was really different. He liked plants and oases. He had actually directly opened up a Small World, connecting to the paradise of the Small World.
There was a saying that went, “What you can’t have is always the best.”.
Chen Chen had already noticed when the Heavenly Scorpion was sleeping earlier.
The tree it was leaning on was decaying particularly quickly. It seemed to have been affected by the power of the Heavenly Scorpion’s own laws.
Of course, it could also be that it was born with the attribute of decay or desertification. Wherever it passed, it would eventually turn into a sea of sand.
In short, it might not be able to stay in an oasis for a long time.
Even someone as powerful as it had something that it could not get.
And the longer it lived, the more it cared about something that it could not get.
‘In the end, it’s still been living for too long!’
Chen Chen sighed in his heart.
If it was not for the fact that it had lived too long, these true spirits would not have the time to think about poetry and faraway places?
“What’s your name?”
“Chen Chen.” Chen Chen was straightforward. This time, he did not ask Zhang Ji to take the blame.
“Chen Chen, do you know that your wood law comes from a very special source and is different from other wood laws? If not for that, I would not have found you at the first moment.”
The Heavenly Scorpion sat on the bed and said lightly.
“Different?” Chen Chen was a little surprised.
In fact, not to mention other people’s wood laws, he had rarely seen other laws. After all, the number of Unification stage experts he had met was very limited.
However, he was certain that the Heavenly Scorpion did not come to him by accident. It was related to his wood laws.
“Your wood laws contain a powerful life force. In the future, if your cultivation base increases, you will have a chance to transform it into one of the supreme laws, the life law.”
The Heavenly Scorpion calmly explained.
Chen Chen was puzzled. This was the first time he had heard of the supreme law.
However, he knew that there were different kinds of laws. For example, the law of flowers that Li Xian had cultivated after entering the Unification stage was not very strong.
As for the law of life that the Heavenly Scorpion had mentioned, he knew that it was extremely powerful when he heard the name even if he had never seen it before.
“I need you to cultivate the law of life and destroy some of the law of Nirvana in my body.”
Sky the Heavenly Scorpion did not hide anything and went straight to the point.
When Chen Chen heard this, the stone in his heart dropped to the ground.
He was afraid that Sky the Heavenly Scorpion did not have a need. Since there was a need, then it was fine. This at least meant that his life would not be in danger for a short period of time.
“Uh… Senior Heavenly Scorpion, I will try my best to cultivate it.” Chen Chen scratched his head. His face was full of sincerity.
What kind of law of life was this? It sounded very awesome. Who knew how long it would take to cultivate it? Anyway, he had to agree first.
As soon as Chen Chen agreed, the Heavenly Scorpion suddenly swung its tail and directly pierced into his arm.
One after another, symbols began to flash, and Chen Chen began to twitch violently. His face turned from ruddy to pale, and then from pale to ashen.
Just as he felt that he was about to become cold, Sky the Heavenly Scorpion retracted its tail.
Chen Chen lay on the ground and coughed violently. His eyes seemed to have lost focus.
Just a while ago, he had walked through the gates of Hell.
“If you want to comprehend life, you must first understand death. It is too slow for you to cultivate the law of birth. With my help, you will be able to comprehend the law of life within a hundred years.”
When Chen Chen heard the Heavenly Scorpion’s words while he was in a daze, his heart turned cold.
A hundred years?
Could it be that the Heavenly Scorpion wanted to hit him from time to time within a hundred years?
Then he might as well just die!
“This… Senior Heavenly Scorpion! I still have unfinished wishes, and I can’t feel at ease to comprehend the laws of life!”
Chen Chen stretched out his hand and said in a sorrowful voice.
“What wish? I’ll help you complete it.” The Heavenly Scorpion’s tone was still indifferent, but there was a faint hint of not allowing anyone to interfere.
Chen Chen scoffed in his heart, but his expression turned more and more miserable. He told him about the matter of the lower realm and the spatial rift.
“Senior, my wife and children are in that Small World, as well as my family and friends. I’m worried about them, so I thought of bringing them to the upper realm. If you can help me complete this wish, I can stay by your side in peace until I understand the law of life.”
Chen Chen’s words were extremely sincere, and it was not a lie.
Ever since he came to the upper realm, this matter had always been on his mind. If this matter could be resolved, then it would not matter even if he stayed by the Heavenly Scorpion’s side.
“Locking down a Small World and opening a passage takes more than a hundred years. It’s too much of a waste of time.”
The Heavenly Scorpion shook its head and refused.
Chen Chen smiled awkwardly and said shamelessly, “Senior, why don’t I go out and search for it? When I find it, I’ll return to your side to serve you.”
After saying this, Chen Chen felt some anticipation in his heart.
He was looking forward to finding out what kind of mark the Heavenly Scorpion would leave on him or what kind of poison the Heavenly Scorpion would put on him, and then let him go.
When that time came, he might be able to use the system to solve the mark or poison in the outside world.
Once the hidden danger was solved, he swore that he would never come to the Boundless Sea desert again until he could kill true spirits.
The Heavenly Scorpion nodded slightly.
Chen Chen was overjoyed and almost couldn’t hold back his laughter. However, on the surface, he was so grateful that he wanted to kneel down on the spot.
“Heavenly Scorpion, then I will go and find him! I guarantee with my personality that I will return within three years!”
After saying that, Chen Chen turned around and wanted to leave, but he could not move a single step.
“Do you see the corpse in the corner on the left?”
“I see it.”Chen Chen looked at the position sky the Heavenly Scorpion had mentioned and answered helplessly.
“This cultivator has practiced the clone technique quite well. I killed his main body here, and the clone was only killed by me in the outside world a long time later. There should be a secret manual of the clone technique in his storage ring. Take it out and learn it, then refine a clone and go out to solve your problems.”
After saying that, it waved its tail, and the corpse was smashed in front of Chen Chen with a bang.
