At this point, more than one month had passed on the Windy Fiery Skies Platform.
But the powerful beings who remained here were still very patient.
During the past 10,000 Kingdoms Pilgrimages, they would have returned to their own kingdoms by now.
The entire Jambu Realm was nervous this time because of the Ancient Soul Tower. While many people were not present at the scene, they would quickly be updated on any content that was projected through the mirrors, even if they were faraway in the sea region.
Now a total of eight of the nine mirrors surrounding the Ancient Soul Tower had lit up. They projected images of the participants inside the tower, and the contents kept changing. Anyone could be the main focus of the images being projected.
Now only the ninth mirror remained pitch-black.
Of the Ambassadors of 10,000 Kingdoms who remained here, they were either youths or the most powerful beings of their kingdoms. Now they were looking at the eight mirrors and their projected images. Occasionally, they would discuss for a while. On the other side, there were many Yan Huang Tribe members who stayed behind. However, they were quite quiet and their expressions were quite grave.
The reason for their dark expressions was because they could see clearly that the conflicts inside the tower had intensified recently. There were even people who killed their competitors in desperation. The entire process of their killings were displayed fully on the mirrors. The entire world stood witness.
These blood debts would be settled after the event. Hence, at such moments, ambassadors from the involved kingdoms in these incidents would also argue on the Windy Fiery Skies Platform.
Of course, most of the time, these involved the ambassadors and the Yan Huang Tribe members.
Now they spoke less, because the conflicts inside the tower had intensified.
The mystical dragon tribe was probably the only group that could remain on the sidelines and be bystanders to all these conflicts. None of their tribe members had entered the Ancient Soul Tower. Hence, they would not have conflicts with anyone.
But anyone could tell that Luo Pin was still watching the mirrors seriously. Her eyes never left the mirrors.
"From the beginning until now, Wu Yu only appeared momentarily at the start before he disappeared from the mirrors. Based on his ability, he was probably only active at the first and second levels. As he cannot reach higher levels, nothing interesting is going on at his side," the Shackled-God Rogue Dragon said behind Luo Pin.
"Perhaps." Luo Pin nodded. She knew that Wu Yu had no advantage inside the Ancient Soul Tower. Hence, it was not surprising that he had no opportunity to display outstanding performances.
"On the other hand, Princess Phoenix Dawn has appeared many times in the mirrors. It looks like the Ancient Emperor is following her closely. While she is protected by many demon kings, she is courageous and intelligent. Previously, she almost obtained the Yan Huang Golden Bead," the Shackled-God Rogue Dragon continued saying.
"That woman?" Luo Pin did know her. Wu Yu had briefly explained Nangong Wei's situation to her before. Luo Pin did not ask much then, and now, similarly, she was unwilling to talk much about Nangong Wei.
"Be honest, are you waiting for him to emerge unharmed or to emerge with the Yan Huang Golden Bead? I think that it is almost impossible for the latter to happen."
Luo Pin's eyes remained steadfast. She was still looking at the eight mirrors when she replied, "I hope he comes out unharmed."
It was indeed quite impossible for Wu Yu to obtain the Yan Huang Golden Bead. This was especially clear after she had seen a few violent fights happening inside the tower. In such chaotic situations, it was good enough if he could remain alive.
Some of the Ambassadors of 10,000 Kingdoms had gathered in small groups. These ambassadors obviously had better relationships with each other.
"I think that the God Maker World Lord from the Devilsky Tribe is not bad. He started from scratch and became powerful after a mysterious encounter. He is younger than Prince Yu, yet no weaker than Prince Yu. He has a cold personality and has kept a low profile, but he performed outstandingly well the few times he had appeared in the mirrors. Perhaps he may be the one to get the Yan Huang Golden Bead."
"Hehe, that will depend on whether the Ancient Emperor is willing to allow him to receive the Yan Huang Golden Bead. Let's watch and see. While I trust the Ancient Emperor, I still feel that the Yan Huang Tribe members will stand a higher chance. For instance, Prince Yu and Prince Xiao are both performing well too. Princess Xi also almost caught the Yan Huang Golden Bead once."
"I don't think so. Many from the Yan Huang Tribe have entered it, but of them, only a few are truly powerful beings. We have an equal number of truly powerful beings from our Ambassadors of 10,000 Kingdoms. Hence, both groups have equal opportunities. For instance, the Auroral Monarch from the Sky Demon Nation is quite strong. His true form is the Nine Aurora Grand Devil, and he has been appointed at such a young age to control up to one quarter of the land in the Sky Demon Nation."
"Army General Ming Qingyan of the Qingyan Army from the Central Golden Shine Empire is also quite outstanding. While she is from the Central Golden Shine Empire, she is not from the Golden Shine Tribe. She is from the minority tribe, the Qingming Tribe. Yet she has managed to rise up through the ranks on her own to receive the awe and respect of the citizens of the Central Golden Shine Empire. She is terrifyingly strong. She can be considered a top genius of her generation. She is one of the strongest youths around the age of 100 years old."
"God Maker World Lord? Nine Aurora Grand Devil? And Ming Qingyan? When you are talking about them, I can only think of many more on their level from the entire Jambu Realm. You guys have left out many sea region demons. Many demons of this level from the Perennial Sea, Dead Souls Sea Region, Antarctic Eddy and Arctic Glacial Sea had entered the tower. My guess is that there are at least twenty people in this tower who are at the Eighth Tier Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm. Of these people, Prince Yu is hardly the strongest."
"The only thing that we can be sure of is that there are plenty of them who have yet to pass the third dao calamity and reach the ninth tier of the Dao Querying Three Disasters Realm."
"As for who can obtain the Yan Huang Golden Bead in the end, let's wait and see. Anyway, to me, any one of them stands an equal chance of getting the Golden Bead. After all, a few people almost succeeded in getting the Golden Bead during the previous altercations."
Perhaps other than Luo Pin, all the others had forgotten about Wu Yu. After all, this tower was reigned by those martial cultivators who had trained for at least 400 years. Those like Wu Yu, who have trained for less than 100 years, were just cannon fodder inside the tower. It was already good enough if these people could stay alive. Basically, those who did not have the protection of experts could only remain at the first level.
As for Prince Le, he was naturally thrown to the back of the audience's minds too. Anyone could tell that Prince Le actually had no advantage at all in this challenge. Hence, the rumor that the Ancient Emperor had intended to choose Prince Le as his successor was proven false.
Besides, the Ambassadors of 10,000 Kingdoms did not think that the princes and princesses could get the Yan Huang Golden Bead and succeed the Yan Huang Emperor's throne.
The Phoenix Supreme looked at the eight mirrors and smiled.
"I think that the person who lights up the ninth mirror might get the Yan Huang Golden Bead," the Phoenix Supreme murmured to the demon lords sitting beside her.
After wandering about the third level of the Ancient Soul Tower for half a day, Wu Yu came across many spirits of the universe, as expected. To put it simply, any tree in this environment could become a spirit of the universe at any time. This was similar to the rock tortoises on the second level, except that there was a greater number of spirits of the universe on the third level.
Three days had passed and Prince Yu was still trailing them. He did not control Wu Yu's group or their movements, but stuck to them closely like a maggot attached to the bone. He made Wu Yu's group feel extremely uncomfortable.
During these three days, Wu Yu mainly focused on studying the Elusive Firefly's spirit design. He had waited for the day that the broken Elusive Firefly would finish being repaired in the Floating Dreams Pagoda. Wu Yu had already notified Prince Le and the others.
"I'm confident. I can shake Prince Yu off our backs."
They were incredibly excited when they heard Wu Yu's words. Unknowingly, they had already formed the habit of turning to Wu Yu as their main decision maker.
"You just have to try. If we don't lose him, then we can't do anything," Prince Le said.
They were trekking through this thick forest when Wu Yu suddenly stopped in his tracks. He released the Elusive Firefly from the Floating Dreams Pagoda, and the Elusive Firefly flew in circles around them.
"So pretty." The girls were already entranced by the beauty of the fluorescent orbs.
But at this moment, the fluorescent orbs expanded rapidly and covered Wu Yu's group. The Elusive Firefly's real body was beside Wu Yu. It formed a highly stable space around its real body. After which, the fluorescent orbs of the Elusive Firefly started to divide. It divided speedily, and as it divided, it slowly floated upwards like dandelion seeds and spread into the surroundings. In the blink of an eye, it actually fissured into tens of thousands of pieces.
This was the Spatial Fluorescent Orb Design. It was built on the basis of the Innumerable Fluorescent Orbs Design.
It was different from the God Slaying Fluorescent Orbs Design. The number of times that the God Slaying Fluorescent Orbs Design could divide was limited. It would stop when it fissured into 10,000 pieces. However, the number of times the Spatial Fluorescent Orb Design could divide was unlimited. It could divide infinitely, unless the Elusive Firefly stopped the process.
Each fissure of the fluorescent orbs that was split out would continue to divide. One would divide into three or even four new orbs. These fluorescent orbs spread through the forest rapidly at a terrifying speed. Within a short period of time, it had already covered a large part of the forest.
Different from the God Slaying Fluorescent Orbs Design, the Spatial Fluorescent Orb Design had no offensive power. However, it existed in great numbers and was difficult to disperse. And the space that Wu Yu's group was in, was only one of the many tiny fluorescent orbs.
Within a short period of time, the fluorescent orbs flew out in all directions and continued to divide. If one looked up into the sky at this moment, one would see an endless sea of fluorescent orbs covering this forest. When Prince Yu appeared at the position where Wu Yu's group was at initially, he could only laugh bitterly. This was because he had no way of knowing which orb Wu Yu's group had hidden in, from the millions of fluorescent orbs. Besides, these fluorescent orbs were still dividing.
To put it simply, Wu Yu's group had been freed of Prince Yu's control. They were inside a fluorescent orb and floating to somewhere far away. They had shaken Prince Yu off entirely. Of course, it depleted the puppet greatly to maintain so many fluorescent orbs. Hence, once they had escaped from Prince Yu, Wu Yu released the spirit design. In an instant, the endless fluorescent orbs in the forest disappeared without a trace.
While this happened within a short period of time, many people had probably come into contact with the fluorescent orbs and were curious as to what these were. Actually, Wu Yu did not know that during his short period of escape, the third mirror outside had changed a few times. Each time, green light orbs had appeared beside the main characters in the mirror. The audience, including Luo Pin, were baffled as to what those things were while watching the images.
Of course, she did not know that this was related to Wu Yu.
"We've finally lost him!"
Even Prince Le laughed and could not resist praising him. "You are really incredible! It was really too unbearable having that guy follow us everywhere!"
Now it was their turn to perform.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
