"What's going on?"
"Something's happening above!"
Although just for an instant, people at the Windy Fiery Skies Platform could see that a fiery Yan Huang Golden Bead had appeared, which stirred everyone to life.
And then the Yan Huang Golden Bead appeared on the seventh level's mirror. Amidst the white light, the golden, changing Yan Huang Golden Bead was especially bright. They saw Wu Yu suddenly appear beside it, but then shrugged off.
The golden fireball did not stand out that much in a world of light.
Soon after, the sixth level's mirror changed. It was fixed on a huge, golden sphere, the Yan Huang Golden Bead. The patterns on it had been seen before, but now they were enlarged too.
In the dark world of the sixth level of the Ancient Soul Tower, the Yan Huang Golden Bead appeared like a sun, illuminating the gloomy world. Without question, everyone at the sixth level of the Ancient Soul Tower saw the Yan Huang Golden Bead.
"What is that?!"
The same question was on everyone's minds.
"Such a big fuss - it wouldn't be the Yan Huang Golden Bead, would it!?"
"It's headed down! Let's go see!"
Clueless as to what it was, no one could resist trying to find out more.
"Seems like it's really going to end. The Yan Huang Golden Bead is changing. Who will be the final possessor?"
Those outside, even throughout the Jambu Realm, were riveted on the constantly enlarging fireball. They watched it hurtle from the dim sixth level to the fifth level. As it did, most, if not all, of the people at the sixth level and above came in pursuit. The word was out now. Some recognized the markings as the Yan Huang Golden Bead's.
The Yan Huang Golden Bead's special change and the sheer amount of time that had passed had made them all lose patience. Right now, they were probably in the endgame. Sensing this opportunity, everyone was driven mad, digging deep for a last burst of strength.
Of course, following closely behind the Yan Huang Golden Bead was Wu Yu and the bunch of eighth tier Dao Querying experts. They were the fastest and, of course, the quickest to spot the Yan Huang Golden Bead. Therefore, they were trying their best to keep up. No one wished to be left behind!
"Wu Yu! What a waste! You were given three days, but could not take the Yan Huang Golden Bead down? The Ancient Emperor must be disappointed in you! He delivered it to your hands, and still you couldn't conquer it. Oh, I'm going to split from laughing!" From behind, taunts came. He looked back to see that it was Prince Diablo.
"He actually thinks the Ancient Emperor delivered the Yan Huang Golden Bead to me?" Wu Yu did not know whether to laugh or cry. He was the one who had had the brainwave that the Yan Huang Golden Bead was hidden amidst the Spirits of the Universe.
He thought that the Ancient Emperor was playing dirty.
"A pity. But it's a fair fight now. Let's see who has the last laugh." The young emperor of Sky Demon Nation was chasing very hard as well.
From their expressions, they all felt that he had wasted three days. They thought that he had spent three days trying to force it to submit, but had failed.
Prince Yu and the others looked especially burdened. They had evidently been through a stage of despair, but now that a chance had presented itself anew, they worked doubly hard. The fire in their eyes showed that the Yan Huang Golden Bead was a must-get for them!
They had all come to the fifth level of the Ancient Soul Tower now. This world was no longer that hot for Wu Yu, but the Yan Huang Golden Bead's appearance had restored the world to its original level of heat. People howled from the pain. They, too, could see this sun-like object. That's right, the Yan Huang Golden Bead was fairly large now, and extremely eye-caching. Wu Yu was chasing it from behind, like a setting sun.
Of course, the Yan Huang Golden Bead was just made of metal - it was not the sun. It was just that it was spewing huge quantities of flame from its surface!
Bang, bang, bang!
The setting sun rumbled thunderously as it continued to descend, and everyone knew about it now. Under such circumstances, anyone would give chase and try their luck, no matter how weak they were!
Wu Yu could have used the Somersault Cloud to leap ahead of the Yan Huang Golden Bead to impede it, but he did not. Firstly, the Yan Huang Golden Bead was too wild now, and even if he had the Floating Dreams Pagoda with him, he probably could not do anything about it. Secondly, the dozen eighth tier Dao Querying cultivators were right behind him. If he stuck out at this time, they would all attack him. If they all targeted him at the same time, he would be dead meat.
"At this time, when everyone is at their most worked-up, I had better sit quiet and watch, since I've missed my best opportunity. Who knows what the Yan Huang Golden Bead will become in the end."
This thought came to Wu Yu, and he gradually eased away from the most attention-grabbing position. He allowed others ahead of him, while he trailed far behind, dropping out of notice. He knew that if he did not stay calm at this time, he would become cannon fodder.
The transformation of the Yan Huang Golden Bead did not only set the Ancient Soul Tower afire with excitement, but also made those outside restless. The experts' eyes were wide, and they were watching closely. They seemed a little anxious, and even the Phoenix Supreme did not speak, but watched in silence. Everyone was watching with bated breath as the Yan Huang Golden Bead blasted through level after level until it reached the second level.
"Perhaps it wants to go to the first level?" Wu Yu had chased it here as well. His Heaven Devouring Avatar was on the way, at the third level.
At the volcanic world of the second level, the Yan Huang Golden Bead continued to descend. However, it was completely different from how it was at the eighth level. The second level cultivators suddenly saw a colossal sun descend from the sky. It passed through the web of lightning and occupied half of the sky. Some unfortunates were unable to get out of its way and were incinerated by the flames.
The others fled, screaming wretchedly.
Without question, the first level of the Ancient Soul Tower was the most populated. And there were many Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm cultivators there as well, who were unable to reach the second level. Given the force of the Yan Huang Golden Bead, it seemed destined for an unstoppable run to the first level.
Prince Yu and the dozen of them seemed content to observe as well. Some wanted to rush up to stop it, including some seventh tier Dao Querying cultivators. But they all paid the price, some of them with their lives.
The Yan Huang Golden Bead in its current form was too fearsome.
Finally, as Wu Yu had thought, the Yan Huang Golden Bead sank into the first level, the huge world of yellow sand. This was the largest world, where huge sand grains were everywhere. When Wu Yu returned to this place, the yellow sand no longer posed a threat to him. As for the Yan Huang Golden Bead, it turned into a huge, fiery ball of sand in this desert world. It finally came to a rest, hovering in mid-air, still blazing.
Compared to it, the martial cultivators had to be feeling extremely small, with the exception of the demons. Many people soon came in pursuit, but no one did anything reckless. The youngsters who had remained at the first level of the Ancient Soul Tower were captivated by this huge object. Some ventured forth, but a sweep of the flames incinerated them before they could get near.
"What is this!?"
"I don't know!"
"Look, many people are coming down from above!"
"Could this be the Yan Huang Golden Bead?! But why is the Yan Huang Golden Bead so huge?!"
"I don't know... what is happening...." Shock was reflected on many faces.
Wu Yu had come down as well, but he did not do anything rash. Instead, he drew apart from Prince Yu and the others, heading for the other side of the Yan Huang Golden Bead. For now, those that dared to do anything were those that did not fear death. Everyone was watching. The pursuers from above had all reached the first level now. Before long, the entire Ancient Soul Tower would be down here at the first level.
Wu Yu looked around and saw many people. Some demons had already changed into their true forms.
The dozen or so that were at the eighth tier of the Dao Querying Realm, and many of those at the sixth tier and above, had split up. But everyone was contemplating the Yan Huang Golden Bead.
Many had met horrific fates, and so no elite expert had made a move yet. Perhaps everyone was waiting for the Yan Huang Golden Bead to change again after the fury and the flames? For example, cooling down.
Therefore, those like Prince Xiao were also waiting impatiently, curbing their impulses.
Wu Yu was more calm because he had neared the Yan Huang Golden Bead many times but had not succeeded. With the Yan Huang Golden Bead so terrifying, he did not think that he would succeed now before so many others.
Actually, Prince Yu and the others had guessed right. Not long after the Yan Huang Golden Bead arrived, the huge, golden ball began to spin. The golden fireball was changing and spinning, until the figure of a person could be made out. This process was not quick. As time passed, people could gradually see it change to its final form: the Yan Huang Ancient Emperor made completely of gold!
Most striking was that one eye was a golden flame, the other the azure blue of moonlight.
This golden titan was clad in golden armor, and even its flesh was golden. It held two weapons in its hands, and towered above them like the mortals were ants....
Everyone held their breath.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
