When Mu Chen’s voice resounded, all the Heavenly Sovereigns’ expressions grew complicated. This conditions were alarming to everyone.
The Great Thousand World only had five Primal Celestial Bodies, and each of them was scarce and powerful. This was the reason why the Maha Tian was even willing to start a war because of the Primordial Immortal Body.
But at this moment, Mu Chen still wanted another two Primal Celestial Bodies, aside from the Primordial Immortal Body, leaving everyone speechless.
As the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor exchanged a glance, they looked at the Patriarchs and Grand Elders of the four other Ancient Clans. After all, the other four Primal Celestial Bodies were kept by the four Ancient Clans.
Facing the gaze from the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor, aside from Qing Yanjing, the three other clans had their gazes flickered. After all, a Primal Celestial Body was too important, and even they did not dare to speak up.
Hence, an awkward silence haunted the hall.
“My Ancient Buddha Clan is willing to take out the Endless Radiance Body.” Qing Yanjing was the first to speak and break the silence. Although she was the Grand Elder of the Ancient Buddha Clan, she naturally had to receive the support of the Elder’s Association if it was something that concerned the Endless Radiance Body. However, the Great Thousand World was in a life-and-death situation, and if they couldn’t stop the Heavenly Evil Monarch five years from now, even the Ancient Buddha Clan would be destroyed. So what’s the point of having the Endless Radiance Body then?
Most importantly, Mu Chen was her son, and she would naturally support him.
Hearing Qing Yanjing’s words, the three Ancient Clans bitterly smiled. Mu Chen was her child, and he’s even the Patriarch of the Ancient Buddha Clan. So Qing Yanjing could naturally support him with such vigour.
The Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor nodded their heads. They now lacked one more Primal Celestial Body.
The Grand Underworld Ancestor, Patriarch Hei Tian, and Patriarch Huang Qiu looked worried, but they did not take the initiative to speak. They were waiting for the others to speak first.
All of a sudden, Luo Li looked at the Grand Underworld Ancestor and smiled. “Elder Grand Underworld.”
Hearing Luo Li’s words, the Grand Underworld Ancestor trembled before he looked at her with an awkward smile.
However, Luo Li did not bother about it and said, “As the Holy Maiden of the Ancient Spirit Clan, I have the authority to decide this matter, right?”
Nodding his head, the Grand Underworld Ancestor gave a bitter smile. “The Holy Maiden is akin to the Patriarch, and you naturally have great authority in making the decision.”
“The Great Spirit Sage Body is the treasure of my Ancient Spirit Clan, and it’s natural for you to have hesitations… But I would like to ask you a question. What’s the use of the Great Spirit Sage Body if there’s no Ancient Spirit Clan?” Luo Li’s voice gently resounded, causing the Grand Underworld Ancestor’s face to tense up.
If they didn’t have a third Ranker five years from now, the Great Thousand World would face destruction, and the Ancient Spirit Clan would be included.
After a brief hesitation, the Grand Underworld Ancestor bitterly smiled. “Your words are right, and if we’re still selfish at this moment, then we will be courting destruction.”
Raising his head, he looked at the Flame Emperor, Martial Ancestor, and Mu Chen. “Since that’s the case, my Ancient Spirit Clan will hand the Great Spirit Sage Body over to Mu Chen.”
“Thank you, Elder Grand Underworld.” Mu Chen cupped his fists.
When Patriarch Hei Tian and Huang Qiu saw that the Grand Underworld Ancestor was willing to hand the Great Spirit Sage Body over to Mu Chen, they felt awkward, since what Mu Chen was doing was for the sake of the entire Great Thousand World.
“If there’s a need, my two clans can also contribute our Primal Celestial Bodies.”
Although the two of them were belated, Mu Chen still gave them a smile to express his gratitude.
“With three Primal Celestial Bodies gathered onto you, it’s unprecedented. Don’t disappoint everyone.” Maha Tian couldn’t help speaking with his eyes turning red from jealousy.
Mu Chen smiled. “I will naturally do my best, since I know the consequences of failure.”
Maha Tian seemed to be muttering something, but kept silent. He might be jealous, but he knew how to weigh the situation. At this moment, Mu Chen was the last hope of their Great Thousand World.
For the sake of the overall situation, he naturally hoped for Mu Chen’s success as well.
“Since the problem with the Primal Celestial Bodies is resolved.” The Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor nodded their heads before speaking, “Then we will have to think of how to get you to the Saint Heavenly Sovereign Realm five years from now.”
All the Heavenly Sovereigns in the hall locked their brows together. Mu Chen was only a Middle Phase Immortal Heavenly Sovereign Realm. Generally, it wouldn’t be easy for anyone to reach the Saint Heavenly Sovereign Realm from the Middle Phase Immortal Heavenly Sovereign Realm in five years.
That would require an enormous opportunity.
As everyone fell into silence, the Undying Lord raised his head and looked at Mu Chen. “In five years, with King Mu’s talent and external help, it’s not impossible…”
His words instantly attracted everyone’s gazes over. “What external help?”
The Undying Lord sighed as he stretched his finger and pointed towards the North Desolate Grave with a smile. “In ancient times, when the Immortal Emperor fought with the Heavenly Evil Monarch, he ended the battle by sacrificing his life to seal the Heavenly Evil Monarch.
“But the Immortal Emperor possessed the Primordial Immortal Body, and his physique was immortality itself. Although he died, his physique was preserved.
“At the same time, the Spiritual Energy that the Immortal Emperor cultivated was stored in his Immortal Physique, containing boundless power. We call it… the Emperor Inheritance Pool.”
The Undying Lord’s words instantly caused a commotion. All the Heavenly Sovereigns had a fire burning in their hearts. The Spiritual Energy of the Immortal Emperor! Even if it was exhausted after the passage of time, there’s still a massive amount of energy. If that energy was refined and absorb, there’s a great chance of reaching the Saint Heavenly Sovereign Realm.
“However, the Immortal Emperor’s Spiritual Energy contains the will of immortality, and no one can absorb it, or they will be devoured by it instead…” The second half of the Undying Lord’s words extinguished everyone’s excitement.
With a smile, the Undying Lord looked at Mu Chen. “That means that only those that have cultivated the Primordial Immortal Body can absorb the Emperor Inheritance Pool.”
“Haha, that means that this Emperor Inheritance Pool is something meant for King Mu, and this is the best opportunity.”
Everyone in the hall inwardly smacked their lips as they looked at Mu Chen with envy. That fellow truly possessed the best fortune in the Great Thousand World right now by monopolising everything.
“Truly, the age forges the hero…” Everyone sighed. If it was during ordinary times, just the two Primal Celestial Bodies itself were practically impossible to obtain, not to mention the Emperor Inheritance Pool.
However, there was nothing they could do, since only Mu Chen dared to bear this burden.
Not even a Late Phase Saint Heavenly Sovereign like Qin Tian dared to shoulder it.
The crown of desire was undoubtedly one with dense weight.
After receiving all the opportunities, he had to be responsible for the result.
Seeing that the two conditions were fulfilled, the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor felt heavily relieved as they looked at Mu Chen. “Your conditions are fulfilled, and it’s all on you now.”
Mu Chen’s eyes were sharp as he nodded his head. “I will do my best.”
The Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor nodded their heads before they stood up and unleashed a powerful pressure as their faces turned cold. “But we can’t sit and do nothing during this period.”
“From now onwards, we will announce the Heavenly Evil Monarch’s desire to destroy us and gather all the powers in the Great Thousand World to engage the Fiend Clans in a war!”
“Since the Heavenly Evil Monarch requires five years to recover, then we will cause trouble for him. The Martial Ancestor and I will keep a lookout on his location and force him to fight with us to delay his recovery!”
All the Heavenly Sovereigns stood up in the hall with killing intent flashing on their faces. Since the Fiend Clans wanted to destroy the Great Thousand World, then they could only fight with their lives on the line.
Instantly, the Great Thousand Palace was covered in killing aura.
Even Mu Chen was affected by the atmosphere as he stood up with a cold expression.
The Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor looked at him and smiled. “But you don’t have to participate in the war. You will be leaving for the North Desolate Grave, accept the Emperor Inheritance Pool, cultivate the two Primal Celestial Bodies, reach the Saint Heavenly Sovereign Realm, and become a Ranker…”
“Only when you achieve that, will our Great Thousand World have a chance in resisting.”
Although Mu Chen felt regretful for not being able to participate in the war, he knew that he was the most crucial factor, and thus, he nodded his head.
The Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor looked at all the Heavenly Sovereigns and their voices resounded, “Everyone, return to your own clans for now. Two months from now, we will gather at the border of the Great Thousand World to attack the demonic regions!”
“Roger!” The Heavenly Sovereigns acknowledged and their voices caused the entire palace to tremble. In the next moment, beams soared into the sky, charging out of the North Desolate Grave and disappeared into the horizon.
Looking at the Heavenly Sovereigns that were leaving, the Flame Emperor and Martial Ancestor wore solemn expressions, since they knew that this news would cause the entire Great Thousand World to tremble.
The peace in the Great Thousand World no longer existed at this moment.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
