Chapter 458: Past
“Fellow Daoist, what are you carving?”
Late at night, Chi Xiang saw that Chen Chen was carving a mess of symbols again, so he came over and asked curiously.
“It’s a type of Heavenly Dao script. You Don’t understand it,” Chen Chen replied indifferently.
Chi Xiang’s expression was a bit embarrassed when he heard this. He thought that he was knowledgeable and learned, but he really couldn’t understand the script carved by this person at all.
However, he could tell that it was a type of writing that had become a system and wasn’t randomly carved.
“Fellow Daoist, what do you mean by carving such a stone tablet and throwing it into that world?” Chi Xiang asked again.
Hearing this, Chen Chen grinned and said, “Same as you. I think it’s very interesting when I think of the natives there scratching their ears and scratching their cheeks, thinking hard but getting nothing out of it.”
Chi Xiang nodded, his expression a little awkward. He was just doing it on a whim before, but he didn’t expect this person to be addicted to it.
What a weirdo!
Without thinking further, he sat down next to him to cultivate.
After he was completely immersed in cultivation, Chen Chen took out another Spirit Stone tablet. This time, he carved words on it.
“I’m in the upper realm. Things are good now. This spatial rift leads to the upper realm but it can’t allow cultivators to pass through. It might disappear within a year, so you don’t have to pay too much attention to it. Also, make good use of the things I threw down. Among them is a detailed map of the upper realm. If someone ascends in the future, he or she can use the map to find the location…”
A moment later, Chen Chen wrote more than 1,000 words.
There was nothing he could do. There were too many things he had to say. If he did not simplify it as much as possible, he might have written 10,000 words.
On the other side, Chi Xiang only thought that he was still scribbling. He did not pay attention to it at all, nor did he come over to find trouble.
After Chen Chen finished carving the stone tablet, he gently sent it into the spatial rift.
Another half a month passed.
The spatial rift became more and more transparent. Chen Chen could even see Yuan Qingtian’s shadow occasionally, which made him extremely excited. He was much happier than when he saw the giant panda in his previous life.
In addition, the spatial rift occasionally projected scenes from other places in the lower realm, such as the demon race’s territory, and the endless sea.
On this day.
Many cultivators gathered in the hall again, most of whom were acquaintances from the last time.
The chief elder of the Earth Lethal sect also appeared again. When he saw that the spatial rift had become transparent, he sighed instead.
Obviously, he also came to a conclusion similar to Chi Xiang’s.
This crack was a useless spatial rift.
Although he thought so, he still held a bit of hope and asked, “Fellow Daoists, what do you think of this spatial rift?”
Chi Xiang beat him to it and said, “It’s a pity. It’s a useless crack and has no value at all.”
Chen Chen nodded at the side and said, “That’s indeed the case.”
When the chief elder heard this, his eyes completely dimmed.
He originally thought that the appearance of a spatial rift in the sect was a great thing, but he did not expect it to turn out to be a false joy in the end.
Thinking of this, he subconsciously wanted to dismiss everyone.
However, at this moment!
The scene projected by the spatial rift suddenly changed, turning into the flaming mountain range in the lower realm!
That scene seemed to be overlooking the lower realm from tens of thousands of meters in the sky. Only then did Chen Chen realize that the flaming mountain range actually took the shape of a phoenix.
The others naturally also noticed this strange scene. One by one, they came over and discussed animatedly.
“This seems to be a special environment formed by the fall of a true spirit!”
“That world really does have a true spirit! I told you, how could the great world not have such a top-tier existence?”
Hearing these words, Chi Xiang was somewhat unhappy.
“It’s just a special environment formed by the fall of a true spirit. Some small worlds even have true spirit corpses. What does that mean? It can only mean that this world was once glorious, but it doesn’t mean that it’s still full of treasures now.”
Chen Chen nodded, agreeing with his point.
The two sides soon began to argue again. Only one cultivator from the Evil Fiend Hall frowned with a solemn expression, as if he was recalling something.
A moment later, the cultivator from the Evil Fiend Hall walked up to the chief elder and said in a low voice, “Elder, do you know that the Evil Fiend Hall has a secret?”
“Secret? What secret?”
The great elder asked in surprise. He didn’t know why this person mentioned this at this time.
“More than 10,000 years ago, the Evil Fiend Hall discovered an extremely large world with abnormally rich resources. In addition, there was also a large number of living beings, which was suitable for our Evil Fiend Hall to cultivate cultivation techniques.
Therefore, the Evil Fiend Hall sent a few batches of cultivators to explore that world. In the end, without exception, all of them died in that world.
“As a last resort, the hall master at that time personally opened the space passage and entered that world…”
“And then?” The great elder became more and more curious.
“In the end, an earth-shaking battle took place. The spatial rift disappeared, and the world lost contact. At that time, the hall master also disappeared without a trace. The life jade slip that was stored in the Evil Fiend Hall… was directly shattered.”
“The hall master died?” The chief elder was extremely shocked.
The Hall Master of the Evil Fiend Hall, what kind of expert was he? As long as it wasn’t an immortal who had descended into the world, it was basically impossible for him to die. However, such an existence had died in an alternate world. This really made people sigh.
However, what did this have to do with the spatial rift?
The cultivator of the Evil Fiend Hall saw the confusion in the chief elder’s eyes and explained, “According to the records in our Evil Fiend Hall, there are several true spirits in that world, and one of them is a true spirit Vermillion Bird!”
“True Spirit Vermillion Bird…” the great elder took a deep breath.
He finally understood the meaning of this Evil Fiend Hall cultivator.
True Spirit Vermillion birds were extremely rare, how could there be so many small worlds that could have them?
Could this world be the lost world from back then, the place where the Evil Fiend Hall master died?
Thinking of this, his heart was filled with excitement.
“Then how do we confirm this matter?”
“I will report this matter to the Evil Fiend Hall. Within a few days, the Evil Fiend Hall will send a group of people to check the authenticity. If it really is that world from back then, let’s not talk about other things for now. The hall master will definitely be happy to welcome his master’s corpse back.”
The cultivator from the Evil Fiend Hall said with a smile.
“I hope so. If this is really the case, it won’t be in vain for the Earth Lethal sect to discover this world!”
The chief elder clenched his fist and said.
“Alright, I’ll take my leave. I’ll have to trouble the chief elder to guard this spatial rift for the next few days.”
“Of course, don’t worry!”
After obtaining the chief elder’s promise, the Evil Fiend Hall cultivator turned around and left the main hall. It did not take long before he disappeared into the horizon.
The conversation between them was not deliberately hidden. The group of cultivators who were arguing did not care, but Chen Chen, who was not far away, heard everything.
At this moment, his heart was already in his throat.
There had been a confrontation between the lower realm and the Evil Fiend Hall. He had already guessed it when he found out that the evil emperor was a member of the Evil Fiend Hall.
He did not expect that the cultivators of the Evil Fiend Hall would be able to see through it now.
What should he do?
It should be known that there were no mature true spirits in the lower realm at the moment. Once the top experts of the Evil Fiend Hall opened the space passage, the lower realm would have almost no power to resist.
He had to worry about such a future.
