Chapter 1762: My Choice!

He split up by himself!

The three Nie Tians that were made of flesh and blood and several thousand meters tall charged out of the Sea of Life directly.

However, his true form remained in the depths of the endless blood sea.

It was just that the division made his true form, which had transcended the limits of ten thousand meters, significantly smaller.

Most surprising of all was that even his true soul left the endless blood sea in one of the doppelgängers.

As soon as that happened, Nie Tian was struck by a peculiar feeling.

His wood power sub-soul seemed to replace his true soul as the foundation of his true form.

His wood power sub-soul also studied the profound truths of life. It was just that it belonged to the same subfield as the Tree of Life.

Luckily, all of the core mysteries of his life bloodline lay within the green aura in the depths of his heart.

Even if his true soul left his true form, his life bloodline wouldn’t be undermined.

His decisiveness shocked the origin of life.

However, the numerous Bloodline Crystal Chains that had stretched from the colossal heart were still connected to his true form, even though they had already stopped infusing him with flesh power.

With doppelgängers separated from his true form, it would be even harder for him to transcend by relying on his true form.

At this point, if the origin of life wanted to help him finish his transcendence, it would have to consume even more flesh power essence.

All of a sudden, Nie Tian felt fury from the origin of life.

With a cold smile, Nie Tian said, “Since you’ve chosen the Blood Father of the Spirit World and have scruples about me becoming a paragon... why can’t I make my own choice?

“Aside from you, three other major origins in the chaos have held out olive branches to me. Why can’t I separate parts of myself to see how things go with them?

“You don’t think we’re exclusive. Of course I wouldn’t consider you as my only choice!”

WHOOSH! WHOOSH! WHOOSH!

After charging out of the endless blood sea, his three doppelgängers floated in the chaos.

Unlike before, when he had entered the chaos in the form of a soul shadow, he presented himself in flesh and blood this time.

The River of Souls was the first to hold out an olive branch to him!

In the chaos, the River of Souls manifested in the same form as a Nether River. However, as opposed to the other, illusory Nether Rivers, this one actually existed.

The doppelgänger that had fused with his true soul looked up at the River of Souls in a composed manner. A smile appeared on his face as he asked, “So this is my true soul in one of my doppelgängers... Do you think you can help me become a paragon?”

The River of Souls responded without any hesitation.

It didn’t respond with words or soul will, but rather a kind of fluctuation.

However, Nie Tian instantly received the message it was trying to convey: “I can!”

“Great.” This doppelgänger of his nodded and flew towards the River of Souls, which had also started floating towards him.

Immediately afterwards, he heard an extremely begrudging and furious shriek. “Nie Tian! How dare you steal my fortune and chance to become a paragon!”

The shrill voice was faint and breaking off, yet he could tell that it was Grand Monarch Nether Spirit.

He gave a cold harrumph and ignored it.

What he didn’t know was that while the Blood Father of the Spirit World and the Tree of Life were in the middle of a fierce battle, Grand Monarch Nether Spirit had already snuck into the area in the dark land that connected to the Dark Abyss and established communication with the River of Souls.

At this moment, his figure had become illusory and blurry, and he was only a step away from crossing into the River of Souls, yet he was ruthlessly abandoned.

By relying on his connection to the River of Souls, he sensed that the River of Souls had given up on him as soon as that doppelgänger of Nie Tian had charged out of the endless blood sea. There hadn’t been the slightest hesitation.

He had been on the verge of becoming the second paragon after Grand Monarch Heavenly Spirit in the history of the Phantasms and Netherspirits. However, all his efforts were destroyed by Nie Tian at the last minute.

He was so enraged that his soul nearly exploded.

“Nie Tian!”

His wrathful, begrudging howl caught the ears of all the experts that were gathered in the middle of the dark land and paying close attention to the battle between the Blood Father of the Spirit World and the Tree of Life.

Only then did they find that Grand Monarch Nether Spirit had snuck into the area without them noticing, and that his illusory form was gradually growing solid.

Looking down at him, Wu Ji, who hid himself in the glorious River of Time like a faint shadow, said softly, “The origins have the right to make their choices.”

However, he doubted that Grand Monarch Nether Spirit could hear him.

“Nie Tian!”

Another furious, fierce howl echoed out from high above.

Everyone looked up into the sky, and saw the sectmaster of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace tremble in fury. “It’s Ji Cang!” 

As he was overcome with anger, fragmentary stars that were the size of fists fell out of his sleeves onto the incredibly vast Tree of Life and the Blood Father of the Spirit World, who were in the middle of a fierce battle.

Bombarded by the fragmentary stars, even the two transcendent beings who had mastered the profound truths of life suffered a great deal, with gashes ripping through their fleshly and vegetative forms, and countless sparks of starlight and flesh aura sputtering off their bodies.

With his brightening eyes, the Blood Father of the Spirit World cast Ji Cang a nasty glance, as if to warn him: “I’ll kill you first if you dare to mess with me!”

However, Ji Cang didn’t see the nasty look the Blood Father of the Spirit World was giving him at all. He only glared at the lord of the Doomed Star Sea, who was enveloped in brilliant starlight, and spat, “Damn you, Qin Yao!

“Liar! You’re all liars! Your hybrid son went to the First Star!  He already entered the Sea of Life, yet he still reached his greedy hands into my territory! How dare he!”

Perhaps he would have felt better if Nie Tian had chosen the origin of stars immediately after entering the chaos.

Now, he had already answered the calls of the origin of life, and sunk into the depths of the endless blood sea. The origin of life had even infused him with power and set him on the path to becoming a paragon. Why was he still unsatisfied?

Furthermore, he had separated doppelgängers from himself to issue requests to three other origins simultaneously.

Was he planning on having the origins of fire, stars, and souls help him transcend while his true form continued to receive legacies from the origin of life?

How impudent!

No one had ever been so greedy in the history of the origins in the chaos selecting paragons!

What Ji Cang found the most unacceptable was that the River of Souls, the First Star, and that cluster of fire actually accepted him simultaneously!

How could sub-souls and doppelgängers become paragons?

Ji Cang was even more wrathful than Grand Monarch Nether Spirit. He even stopped caring about the result of the battle between the Blood Father of the Spirit World and the Tree of Life.

Instead, he just glowered at Qin Yao, as if he were going to make him pay for what his son had done.

Qin Yao went blank for a brief moment before suddenly realizing what had happened. Then, with a faint smile, he said, “The First Star? Aren’t you a part of it? You must have agreed for it to call to him. Otherwise, how could he go to it now?”

After saying these words, Qin Yao roared inwardly, “Well done, my son! I can’t believe all of the four great origins have their eyes on you!”

Ji Cang was taken aback. “Me?” 

Qin Yao grinned like a cunning fox. “You’re a wisp of awareness from the First Star. That means you’re a part of it. Don’t tell me that you don’t know that.”

Ji Cang shook his head repeatedly. “I come from it, but I’m not it! No! I won’t allow this!”

Qin Yao’s expression turned cold. “The First Star has already chosen him. Can you still get in?”

“I can if I separate my soul from my body and become a Void Spirit again.” With these words, Ji Cang looked down at his human body, a hint of reluctance appearing on his face. “By climbing to the peak of the God domain in this fragile human form, I’ve already reached my limits. But if I abandon it...”

He grew hesitant.
