Chapter 1438: A Lobbying Trip

In the southwest part of the Domain of Heaven Span.

A dozen realms were scattered in a fan-shaped area, with enormous beings floating outside of each of them.

Upon closer look, one could see that those enormous beings were either dragons, qilins, phoenixes, or titans.

All of them were at the eighth grade or higher. Some were even at the tenth grade.

Even though the Ancientspirits had sacked these realms, they were so huge that these realms couldn’t contain all of them.

Since those with lower bloodline grades couldn’t protect themselves in the starry river, the stronger ones had to jam up the areas outside the realms, while the weaker ones were arranged to stay in the realms so they weren’t harmed by the chaotic and impure energies in the starry river.

FIZZ!

A spatial rift suddenly split open.

ROAR!

HOWL!

Many of the powerful titans, dragons, and Ancientbeasts that were resting in the vicinity were awoken.

Their lantern-sized, blood-red eyes opened one after another in the dim starry river.

At the same time, their flesh auras that were as immense as the sea burst forth like erupting volcanoes, making it difficult to even breathe.

Fan Tianze from the Heaven Span Pavilion flew out of the spatial rift. Casting a sharp gaze at the area where the titans were gathered, he exclaimed, “Chatvic!”

“Present.”

A figure that was as large as a mountain peak flew over with a loud whoosh, and arrived in front of Fan Tianze in the blink of an eye. Exuding an ancient aura, he said in the human language, “Did you come here by yourself to start new battles? Do you think we’re afraid of you?”

BOOM!

His immense flesh aura sea instantly burst forth from within him, and terrifyingly strong auras poured into his surroundings like invisible rivers.

Pei Qiqi had just come out of the spatial rift at this moment. Her spatial bloodline shone with strange light as the independent spaces within her acupoints were nearly crushed by Chatvic’s expanding flesh aura sea.

Gasping in shock, she hastily stimulated her bloodline and spun the Space Boundaries Crystal.

Currents that were somehow connected to different spaces rapidly wrapped around her.

In the next moment, she seemed to retreat from this area, and started shuttling between different spaces.

By doing that, she managed to escape the impact of Chatvic’s explosive flesh aura.

Standing unwavering in his flesh aura sea, Fan Tianze said, “You wanted to see Nie Tian in the Shatter Battlefield. Now, he’s come over from his domains and expressed his intention to discuss a major issue with you, the dragons, and the Ancientbeasts. He already talked to Grand Monarch Primal Wood of the Floragrims not long ago.”

Some dragons and Ancientbeasts in the vicinity roared with surprise in the human language upon hearing Nie Tian’s name. 

“Nie Tian?”

“The seventh Son of the Stars of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace?”

“Grand Monarch Primal Wood? He doesn’t represent the Floragrims. We only agreed to join up with them to give Grand Monarch Life Wood face.”

“Nie Tian!”

This area of the starry river almost collapsed under their rumbling roars.

Chatvic went blank for a moment before suddenly realizing who Nie Tian was and saying, “Nie Tian, I remember him! He’s the hybrid who carries a very strange aura and can cast our secret magics! He wants to talk to us? My people, the dragons, and the Ancientbeasts?”

Fan Tianze nodded.

Chatvic then turned his enormous body towards the areas where the Ancientbeasts and the dragons were gathered, and asked in the Ancientspirits’ language, “What do you think?”

In the area where the dragons were gathered, Felix, Agaz’s older brother, was the first to give his answer. “Sure.”

In the area where the Ancientbeasts were gathered, Stella, a ninth grade ice phoenix, whispered what Nie Tian had done on the floating continent to a few beside her.

Soon, she gave their answer. “We agree to talk.”

WHOOSH!

In her true form, Stella fluttered her shiny icy wings in an elegant manner and rapidly flew to Chatvic’s side. Upon seeing Pei Qiqi, she said in the human language, “I didn’t expect you to be able to rise to such heights. I realized that you were different upon seeing you for the first time. That’s why I took you to the Shatter Battlefield, but I never expected you to become as powerful as you are now.”

Pei Qiqi’s ethereal voice echoed from within the mysterious currents that enveloped her. “I wouldn’t be who I am today if you hadn’t taken me to the Shatter Battlefield from the Realm of Maelstrom. That’s why I only fought Demons, Phantasms, and Bonebrutes in these battles, but left your people alone.”

Stella fell silent.

“Since they all agree to meet, I’ll bring Nie Tian here right now,” Pei Qiqi said to Fan Tianze.

Fan Tianze frowned slightly. “Meet here?” 

As he spread his soul awareness into his surroundings, he could sense many mighty flesh auras in the nearby realms, which clearly belonged to tenth grade Ancientspirit experts.

Pei Qiqi nodded. “It should be fine. Since they’ve agreed to meet and talk, I think it’s unnecessary to assign another location. Unlike the Demons, Phantasms, and Bonebrutes, the Ancientspirits normally wouldn’t stoop so low as to use schemes. I really doubt that they’ll seal this space after Nie Tian gets here and try to kill us.”

After a moment of hesitation, Fan Tianze nodded and said, “Alright.”

WHOOSH!

Without any hesitation, Pei Qiqi blurred into action and disappeared into the spatial rift.

On the central square in the Heaven Span Pavilion’s headquarters.

“Nie Tian, are you sure that things will work out with the Ancientspirits?” Fang Yuan asked with a knitted brow. “We’ve had prolonged battles against them in the Domain of Heaven Span. Some of their experts died because of us. I’m worried that...”

Interracial wars were never mild. Death was always the theme.

Even before marching into the Domain of Heaven Span, the Ancientspirits, along with the Demons, Phantasms, and Bonebrutes, had butchered a large number of humans in the Realm of Remote Heaven and many other realms they had crossed.

For this reason, when they had arrived in the Domain of Heaven Span, the human experts had shown no mercy to them either.

Many eighth and ninth grade titans had been slain. Ancientbeast starships had exploded in the starry river, causing the deaths of numerous low-grade Ancientbeasts.

Some dragons had also been cornered and killed. Even their bones had been harvested.

The fierce battles had caused heavy casualties to both the Ancientspirits and humans.

At this sensitive moment, Nie Tian wanted to talk to the Ancientspirits. Wouldn’t it be a bit too rash? Would the furious Ancientspirits rip him to shreds?

At this moment, Pei Qiqi returned, which happened sooner than anyone had expected. “Come, Nie Tian. The Ancientspirits have agreed to meet you.

“Chatvic has agreed to talk, as have the Ancientbeasts and the dragons. Seeing their attitude, I doubt that they’ll try to kill you in their gathering place, so I took it upon myself to make it your meeting location.”

Upon hearing this, everyone advised against it. Dong Li was especially worried and against it.

However, Nie Tian nodded vigorously and said, “Alright! Let’s go!”

FZZZ!

Moments later, Nie Tian and Pei Qiqi arrived in the area where the Ancientspirits were gathered.

Upon arriving, Nie Tian felt a sudden jolt to his bloodline, and his heart started pounding heavily.

Wisps of extremely rich flesh power converged on him from all directions!

After taking a moment to examine them with his life bloodline, he quickly realized that several tenth grade Ancientspirit experts were examining him with wisps of their profound flesh auras.

Those flesh auras belonged to titans, Ancientbeasts, and dragons.

Chatvic suddenly fixed his enormous eyes that looked like two glowing spheres on him.

The pressure Nie Tian was feeling instantly multiplied.

WHOOSH!

The Star Behemoth bone naturally flew out and manifested an aura that was unique to the Star Behemoths of the Primal Era, as if it were trying to intimidate something by baring its fangs and brandishing its claws.

“Ahh!”

Many Ancientbeasts, dragons, and titans in the vicinity let out astonished exclamations from the dark.

In their senses, that Star Behemoth bone seemed to suddenly turn into a colossal ancient creature that preyed on them!

Fearful memories that were branded in the deepest part of their bloodlines seemed to be suddenly awakened, and started to grow clearer and clearer.

Wisp after wisp of flesh aura that had converged on Nie Tian in attempts to figure out the wonders of his bloodline were shaken and quickly retrieved by the powerful Ancientspirits.

Felix of the dragons flew over in the form of a thousand-meter-long flame dragon. The crimson scales that covered his body burned fiercely, and released a significant amount of light and heat. “Do you remember me, Nie Tian?”

Nie Tian nodded slightly and said in a sincere manner, “I do. I hear that your world is going through great changes. That’s why Agaz decided to return to your clan to see how things are going. I suppose it won’t be long before he returns to me.”

Felix was taken aback. “What? Agaz went back to our clan? How did he return?”

“Through a portal left by your father ages ago,” Nie Tian answered. Then, he turned to Chatvic and said, “I have some questions that I hope you can answer before we get to business.”

Looking down at him like a heavenly god, Chatvic said in a mighty voice, “Sure.”

“I’ve been to a magical land where many titans were buried,” Nie Tian said. “I was able to learn some incantations from them, all of which proved very helpful. However, I’m not sure whether those titans were dead or just dormant.”

With these words, he summoned powers of different attributes that flowed within him.

BOOM!

He threw a punch towards Chatvic in the manner of Titan’s Wrath.

“Hmm?!”

All of the high-grade titans in the vicinity, including Chatvic, were deeply shaken. Their bloodlines started seething.

Wisp after wisp of surging flesh aura somehow flew out of the ninth and tenth grade titans and into Nie Tian’s striking fist.

This spell cast by Nie Tian seemed to be mighty enough to split the heavens and crush the earth. With it, he even seemed to poke a huge hole in the void.

HOWL! ROAR!

Because of this strike, many titans instinctively thumped their chests and let out raging roars.
