When Mu Chen opened his eyes, two radiant lights beamed from his eyes and pierced through the thick mountain, shooting further out.
Torrential Spiritual Energy fluctuations wreaked havoc in the cave, causing the entire mountain to quake, as if it was about to collapse.
This commotion lasted for a long time before it gradually receded. The radiance in Mu Chen’s eyes also died down and have returned to normal; however, his eyes looked deeper.
Looking at the two Universal Bracelets, Mu Chen shook his head. He didn’t manage to reach the Late Phase Spirit Heavenly Sovereign Realm.
Even with all his preparations and the Divine Pagoda, it was still somewhat forceful for him to absorb ten billion drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid.
But fortunately, it was pure Spiritual Energy, and after absorbing all of it into his body, it was gradually fusing with his body.
After it completely fuses with him, he would reach the Late Phase Spirit Heavenly Sovereign Realm.
“It shouldn’t take long.” Mu Chen could sense that this process wouldn’t take long. However, he didn’t have the luxury of time to be in secluded cultivation, since he couldn’t miss the Primordial Immortal Assembly.
“I’ll cultivate on the way, then.” Mu Chen comforted himself and appeared on the peak of the mountain before he saw two silhouettes coming in his direction. One of them was naturally Nine Nether. As for the second one, it was a young lady in a purple dress with her hair fluttering in the wind. Her exquisite face was akin to porcelain and flickered with a faint luster with a pair of golden pupils that reflected with mystery.
“Mandala?” Mu Chen exclaimed as he looked at the young lady.
In the past, Mandala’s image was that of a little girl. But she had now become a young lady, and from the fluctuation permeating from her, it seems like she has successfully reached the Heavenly Sovereign Realm.
Sweeping a glance at Mu Chen, Mandala said, “My Mandala Clan originally has a long growing period, to begin with. So I passed the childhood phase after my breakthrough.”
Nodding his head, Mu Chen couldn’t hold back his laughter, “That’s for the best. Just in case others think that a little girl is taking charge of our Mu Abode.”
“So, you’re looking down on my previous form?” Mandala squinted her golden pupils.
“I dare not. I dare not.” Mu Chen swiftly replied. He was about to leave, so he had to trouble Mandala. If she made a mess on purpose, the entire Mu Abode would be in chaos.
With a gentle snort, Mandala sourly turned her head away from Mu Chen.
“The attention of the Great Thousand World has recently been attracted by the Ancient Maha Clan.” Nine Nether said.
With a grave expression, Mu Chen nodded his head. “It concerns the ownership of the Primordial Immortal Body, so it’s natural for it to attract everyone’s attention.”
That was one of the Primal Celestial Bodies in the Great Thousand World, so it was natural that everyone would be paying attention to it. It was so much so that even Saint Heavenly Sovereigns’ attentions were on it.
“Here.” Nine Nether took out a scroll and handed it to Mu Chen. “These are the popular choices and some news regarding the event while you were in secluded cultivation. You should know that you have to be well-prepared.”
“Oh?” Mu Chen opened up the scroll with interest, and a familiar name popped in his face on the first line.
Rank 1, Ancient Maha Clan — Maha You. The peak of Late Phase Immortal Heavenly Sovereign Realm, and the younger brother of the Patriarch, Maha Tian. He also has the highest chance of becoming the next Saint Heavenly Sovereign in the Ancient Maha Clan…
“That fellow…” Mu Chen narrowed his eyes. Maha You was truly a figure with his cultivation. As long as he didn’t encounter any Saint Heavenly Sovereign, there wouldn’t be an opponent for him. Thus, it wasn’t surprising that he would be ranked first.
Even he wasn’t intending to fight with Maha You before reaching the Late Phase Spirit Heavenly Sovereign Realm.
Rank 2, the Asura Spear — Ye Qing. Late Phase Immortal Heavenly Sovereign Realm.”
“Ye Qing…” Looking at this name, Mu Chen could sense a killing intent blowing in his face.
“He’s the Second Hall Master of the West Oceanic Hall and has relied on an Asura Spear to sweep away everything in his path. It is rumored that he has undergone a myriad of battles to temper himself. He is also known as the Asura Battlefield with a resounding name. His fame isn’t any inferior to Maha You.” Nine Nether sighed.
Nodding his head, Mu Chen continued looking down the list.
Rank 3, Golden Vajra King — Shi Luo, the Guardian of Grand Spiritual Peak. Late Phase Immortal Heavenly Sovereign Realm.
The Grand Spiritual Peak was also a supreme force in the Great Thousand World, and it was said that every single expert there has focused on cultivating their bodies. Thus, this Shi Luo wouldn’t be simple for being a Guardian.
Rank 4, Blade Saint — Tuoba Cang. Late Phase Immortal Heavenly Sovereign Realm. Relying on a blade, he has traveled the entire world and has once annihilated an entire sect with that blade of his.
“None of them are simple figures.” Looking at the four of them, Mu Chen wore a grave expression. At this moment, he knew how many hidden dragons and crouching tigers there were in the world. Amongst the top four, he only heard of Maha You, but not the other three. But who could’ve expected that their achievements would be so brilliant?
Thinking of these competitors for the Primordial Immortal Body, even Mu Chen felt pressured.
However, he wasn’t afraid, his eyes were blazing with flames. Even the blood in his body had started to boil. The path of a supreme powerhouse constantly required temperaments, and growing stronger from the various battles…
As Mu Chen sighed, he looked at the last name and was briefly stunned before he bitterly smiled.
Rank 5, Mu Abode’s Ruler — Mu Chen. Middle Phase Spirit Heavenly Sovereign. He had once wreaked havoc in the Ancient Buddha Clan. Defeated Huang Xuanzhi in the Deification Pool and five Immortal Heavenly Sovereigns by himself on the Greatlaw Continent.
“Are you dejected that you’re only ranked fifth? It looks like many people think that you’re weaker than the top four.” Mandala tugged her arms together and teased.
Mu Chen casually smiled. “The four of them have forged their reputation a long time ago, and they’re all in the Late Phase Immortal Heavenly Sovereign Realm. So my fame is naturally weaker when compared to the five of them.”
After a brief pause, he continued, “But we will have to fight to see who’s the last one laughing.”
Mu Chen’s eyes flickered with flames. He had been working towards the Primordial Immortal Body, so he wouldn't go down without a fight.
Storing the scroll, Mu Chen did not look at it further. In his view, the biggest threats to him would be the top four.
“I’m making a move soon.” Mu Chen looked at Nine Nether and Mandala. The Primordial Immortal Assembly would begin in ten days, so he had to make the trip over immediately. Otherwise, it would be a huge joke if he missed it, since he has waited for this day for a long time.
“I will have to rely on the two of you with regards to the Mu Abode.” Although all the forces in the Greatlaw Continent have submitted, there were still some that haven’t submitted to the Mu Abode’s rule. Thus, there was bound to be clashes, so he needed Nine Nether and Mandala to hold the ground.
“Don’t worry. I will give you a Mu Abode with complete control of the Greatlaw Continent when you’re back.” Mandala spoke with strong confidence.
Now that Mu Chen has taken the step out, Mandala was confident that she could resolve the other issues.
With a smile, Mu Chen no longer remained and turned into a streak of light then disappeared.
Looking at Mu Chen’s silhouette, Nine Nether had a trace of worry on her face. “I wonder if Mu Chen can succeed this time…”
She was clear that Mu Chen has done a great deal of effort for the Primordial Immortal Body.
After a brief pondering, Mandala commented, “This should be Mu Chen’s hardest battle in his life, and if he manages to get through it, Saint Heavenly Sovereign Realm is just a matter of time. As for the actual process, he can only rely on himself.”
Nine Nether nodded her head and could only pray in her heart. Although Mu Chen has great achievements, the top four weren’t pushovers, and they were more ferocious than Huang Xuanzhi.
As time passed, the atmosphere in the Great Thousand World was brewing due to the Primordial Immortal Assembly. Various forces also started to gather in the Ancient Maha Clan, since there were rumors that the Primordial Immortal Body has shown a reaction and was going to choose its master.
When the rumors got out, they instantly attracted everyone’s attention. Could it be that the Primordial Immortal Body was finally going to choose a master after tens of thousands of years?
If the Primordial Immortal Body chooses its master, then there would be another pinnacle existence in the Great Thousand World…
Thus, the Ancient Maha Clan has practically become the focus of all attention.
It was also under this atmosphere that Mu Chen arrived in the Maha Continent’s Ancient Maha Clan seven days later…Previous Chapter Next Chapter
