Chapter 653 – Ultimate Quest
The spatial ring was in his hand.
This was an item left behind by the progenitor. He would be lying to himself if he said he didn’t want to know what was inside.
Luo Tian wanted to know badly.
He also had to know.
Perhaps ten thousand merit points was hard for a single person to gain in a month, but it was different when you counted an entire Hall. He had to know what was inside or else he would really die an embarrassing death when he cannot fulfill the promise when they come for redemption.
There was no need to imagine further because even if those guys can’t manage to scrape a layer of skin off him, Mount Hua Immortal Sect will still be destroyed.
Luo Tian sent out his senses…
He didn’t detect anyone nearby so he started saying internally: “Old progenitor, you have to have left some good stuff for us. Please don’t let it be nothing inside or else… there’s no way I can hold up Mount Hua Immortal Sect anymore.”
Immediately after, Luo Tian clasped his hands together and looked up at the sky, “Please bless me Teacher Sola Aoi!”
After that, he sent his senses inside the spatial ring.
Before he could see what was inside, everything before his eyes turned pitch black.
A humming sound was heard inside his mind.
His entire body then entered a space with nothingness.
“Damn it, what the hell is going on?!” Luo Tian cursed out.
He then sent out his spiritual senses, “Just a black mass and nothing can be seen. Did this daddy’s Profound God realm powers go out and eat shit?”
There was nothing but darkness.
A Profound God ranker in this place was just like a blind person that was unable to see anything.
Suddenly, someone’s voice exploded in this black space.
“You have come!”
After the voice was heard, a shadow appeared in front of Luo Tian. It was an old man with white hair and a kind smile on his face. His eyes narrowed when he looked at Luo Tian and sized him up and down. He walked around Luo Tian while stroking his long white beard. He finally smiled gently, “Not bad, not bad at all. Three types of bloodlines have been fused together. A shattered dantian yet you can still step into the Profound God realm. Having such a cultivation realm at this age hasn’t been seen in a hundred thousand years. Most likely no one can surpass you even after another one hundred thousand years.”
Luo Tian was constantly being stared at by the old man.
The old man’s gaze looked like a homosexual had discovered another fellow homosexual.
It was like he was about to gobble Luo Tian up.
Luo Tian was stunned by this. Unless he releases his three bloodlines, most people wouldn’t be able to tell. But under the old man’s gaze, it was like he had no place to hide. Luo Tian tightened his sphincter muscle and asked: “Who are you?”
The old man laughed before saying: “You are inside my Xumi Ring, yet still don’t know who I am?”
Luo Tian’s eyes shook, “You are Mount Hua’s progenitor?”
The old man nodded with a smile, “That’s right.”
At this time…
The phantom figures of the five element old ancestors appeared as well. Each of them had a faint smile on their face. Daoist Lie Yan was the first to speak: “What a good kid! You really managed to do it! Hahaha… we didn’t choose the wrong person.”
Daoist Tian Mu then said: “You are really not ordinary. It looks like you are the successor that our master has been waiting for.”
Daoist Jin Ling, Shui Ling, and Tu Ling looked at Luo Tian with smiles on their faces.
Luo Tian was extremely emotional when he saw them and the corner of his eyes was slightly wet.
If they hadn’t self-destructed their souls to seriously injure Seven Moon Devil Sovereign, there was no way he could have killed that guy himself.
They had lost their lives for him!
When he saw their phantom figures, Luo Tian was in pain like his heart was being blocked. “Seniors, thank you very much. Thank you for using your lives to help me. Thank you!”
“Little brother Luo, you can consider having repaid us by leaving that place. We have lived for over tens of thousands of years and it’s already worth it. You don’t need to feel sorry for our deaths because that was the path we chose ourselves.”
“This is our own path!”
“Our fates have been arranged by the heavens.”
“If you hadn’t appeared, the ancient battlefield wouldn’t have been destroyed. You have gotten rid of a huge problem for Mount Hua Immortal Sect.”
“If it weren’t for you, the Xumi Ring wouldn’t be activated.”
“And we wouldn’t be able to see our master’s illusory figure. We were already waiting for someone before your appearance. We weren’t waiting for someone to save us but for the person our master spoke of. We have lived for tens of thousands of years all because of you!” Daoist Tian Mu explained at a neither fast nor slow pace.
Luo Tian was stunned.
Mount Hua’s progenitor stroked his white beard and said: “Luo Tian, don’t worry about them. They may have self-destructed their souls but they are already in another world now. That world is very exciting. What you are seeing now is their five element dao roots.”
“Let’s not talk about them for now.”
“Let’s talk about you.”
“Mount Hua Immortal Sect has already fallen to such a state, so your burden will be very heavy.”
“It would be great if you can support Mount Hua Immortal Sect, but there’s no need to be saddened if you cannot. Everything is destined by fate. Do not force things too much and just let nature take its course. Everything has its own destiny.”
“Huh?” Luo Tian was startled.
Mount Hua’s progenitor actually said such words to him?
He was kind of confused.
Shouldn’t the script be something like, “no matter what, no matter the price, you need to support Mount Hua Immortal Sect?”
Mount Hua’s progenitor said with a smile: “There’s no need to force things and let nature take its course. The reason I left a phantom image of myself in the Xumi Ring was to wait for you because I have an earnest request for you. This is about the fate of the Tianxuan Continent, the true Great Path!”
“Great Path?” Luo Tian was stunned by this.
A Great Path was a type of powerful energy.
It was more powerful than Heaven’s Path.
Luo Tian then said: “Old ancestor, please go ahead and say it.”
Mount Hua’s progenitor’s expression turned serious as his brows furrowed. He was silent in thought for a bit before saying: “When I broke through space as a Profound God Sovereign, I entered another world and found out that our Tianxuan Continent was the lowest world out of all worlds. The amount of profound energy we had was thin and the people cultivated very slowly. But even if this was the case, there were experts from other worlds that didn’t want to spare the Tianxuan Continent. They were treating the Tianxuan Continent like a land of captivity, just like the ancient battlefield. That spatial dimension was opened up by the Ancient World’s Seven Moon Devil Sovereign and he was using it to indirectly absorb the spiritual essence of the Tianxuan Continent. Every world has its own lifespan and spiritual essence. Once their spiritual essence is exhausted, the world will then be destroyed. The process is even more terrifying than being devoured by a black hole.”
Luo Tian was feeling extreme shock!
Who would’ve imagined a world would have spiritual essence and a lifespan.
And the Tianxuan Continent was the lowest world out of all worlds. He couldn’t help thinking of Earth, “I wonder what kind of rank Earth has amongst the other worlds? And does Earth exist within the millions of worlds known here?”
Mount Hua’s progenitor cleared his throat and said: “The Tianxuan Continent is too weak and its destiny is in the control of others. Luo Tian, are you willing to take on the fate of saving the Tianxuan Continent?”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for triggering Tianxuan Continent’s ultimate quest…”
