Chapter 1727: Divine Statue
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Although the Futian Battle God no longer has he head, Qin Wentian could feel that he was looking right at him.
When he heard that ancient and solemn voice, his heart couldn’t maintain his usual calmness. The return of the undying, was it referring to him?
The reappearance of Ancient Azure Mystic was what was happening now. As for bringing peace to all thirty-three heavens, how could it be so easy? That crazy old freak actually placed so much hope on his shoulders?
Also, could it be that this prophecy was left behind by the Imperishable Heaven Lord?
He wasn’t clear about all of this, and he could only speculate.
“What is your name?” He asked Qin Wentian. The Skybreak Heavenly Deity came out from Qin Wentian’s body. In that case, it was clear that the main character spoken of in the prophecy was referring to this young man before him.
“Skybreak, why did you say that the prophecy is coming true?” Futian Battle God asked Skybreak Heavenly Deity again.
“He has cultivated the Undying Scripture. Also, he is the overlord of the current Azure Mystic and was given the title of Heaven Empyrean by the people of this world after he unified it. All of this, isn’t that confirming the prophecy?” The wills of the Skybreak Heavenly Deity and Futian Battle God conversed, no one could hear their conversation. However, everyone understood now that there was actually a great secret behind the reason why Qin Wentian brought them here. No wonder Qin Wentian was so cautious. Since they have chosen to enter here, it was like what they were thinking, there was no way for them to return. They had to continue down this path.
But, this was their choice, they were willing to do so. These two in front of them had the titles of heavenly deity and battle god…Such existences were something they could not imagine. They only knew that by making this choice, they would welcome a bout of good fortune that could change their entire lives.
“Who are these people then?” Futian Battle God stared at the others as he asked. The Futian Battle God glanced at the others. Clearly, he has already silently agreed with the Skybreak Heavenly Deity. Since Qin Wentian has cultivated the Undying Scripture and was also the overlord of the current Azure Mystic as well as the reappearance of Ancient Azure Mystic to the outside world, all of these undoubtedly pointed to the fact that the prophecy is coming true. Everything shall restart soon.
“They are people of Azure Mystic, my elders, my family and my friends. They are now working together with me to govern Azure Mystic. Senior Skybreak asked me to bring them here, hence I summoned them over.” Qin Wentian replied.
“That’s right, although my will has never left the area I was protecting, I chose to do so now. I believed that in this floating city, there are still many existences the same as you and me. Futian, your body died but your will still survived, I believed the wills of many other heavenly deities of our Ancient Azure Mystic aren’t destroyed yet.” Skybreak Heavenly Deity spoke. “I hope that the main character of the prophecy can inherit these wills, and pave the way for the prophecy to come true.”
“Just like what you said, there are indeed similar existences to me and you in the floating city. They survived for countless years and endured boundless loneliness. Although they knew that they have already died, their wills are reluctant to depart. However, it isn’t because they long for this world. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, all their close ones have already died, every day their wills survived, it is like a form of torture to them. Skybreak, your will survived for so long because of your obsession for revenge, right? Despite the fact that the probability of achieving revenge is extremely miniscule.” Futian Battle God sighed.
“Since the prophecy exists, even if there’s only a trace of hope, I will still be willing to endure the loneliness of millions of years. And now, the ray of hope I’m waiting for has finally arrived.” The Skybreak Heavenly Deity spoke. “Futian, are you not the same as me as well?”
“Yes. We are willing to wait because we knew the prophecy existed. Who would have thought that the Ancient Azure Mystic that has long been destroyed, would reappear again in this universe.” His voice was incomparably solemn. He then stared at the group of people around Qin Wentian. “It’s just that these people are simply too weak. Only those with high enough talent have the qualifications to inherit the will of heavenly deities.”
“Talent, is always the answer?” The Skybreak Heavenly Deity then continued. “From the mind of Qin Wentian, I understood the situation of the current Azure Mystic. Right now in this world, even empyreans are rarely seen. This is simply unimaginable. Given how scarce the resources the current Azure Mystic has, as well as its sealed environment, it’s already considered very good that they could become immortal emperors. Although they cannot be compared to the descendants of the Heavenly Deity Race who were born extraordinary, they are not too inferior. I believe that as long as they inherit the wills of heavenly deities, they would also become extraordinary characters.” The Skybreak Heavenly Deity continued.
Waves of shock arose in the hearts of everyone. To inherit the will of heavenly deities?
They simply didn’t dare to believe there would be such a day. Lofty heavenly deities were existences they had never heard of before but now, they were going to inherit their wills?
Naturally, upon inheriting the will of a heavenly deity, it would mean inheriting their unfulfilled missions too. If they gained something, they must naturally give something in return.
“Last question. Can I trust him?” The Futian Battle God was naturally referring to Qin Wentian.
“You don’t need to trust him, you just need to trust the prophecy, and trust that existence. Since the ancient battlefield has already reappeared in the world, and he has arrived here before you, you should already know what this means.” The Skybreak Heavenly Deity’s voice was very calm. He didn’t consider things like Qin Wentian’s character and such. All of this wasn’t something he needed to consider.
Just like what he said, since Qin Wentian managed to arrive before him, everything already had a conclusion. He didn’t need to believe in Qin Wentian, he only needed to believe in the prophecy. That was already sufficient.
“Good.” The Futian Battle God decisively agreed after he heard the Skybreak Heavenly Deity’s words. He didn’t say anything more. They were all clear of what meaning those words held. Indeed, they didn’t need to bother about understanding Qin Wentian, they didn’t even need to trust him. Since he managed to arrive before them, what they needed to do next was their mission, and to trust in the prophecy.
“Is that existence they are talking about that crazy old freak?” Qin Wentian silently mused. It should be him. It was none other than that old man who passed the Undying Scripture to him. Qin Wentian speculated that that person most probably should be the one who sealed Azure Mystic, guarding the ancient battlefield. This time, the restriction order on entering Azure Mystic was relaxed. Was this a coincidence or was everything already destined? Was the crazy old freak in the darkness watching everything?
“All of you, stand on my shoulders.” The Futian Battle God spoke. His body was extremely gigantic and he could easily carry all of them. Qin Wentian didn’t reject. With a flash of his silhouette, he directly stood on the Futian Battle God’s broad shoulders. The empty spot where his head should be was no longer bleeding. There was just nothing there, save for his neck.
After everyone saw Qin Wentian’s actions, all of them followed and moved up the body of the Futian Battle God. Qing`er stood beside Qin Wentian, her beautiful eyes didn’t show much fluctuations in them. No matter what Qin Wentian encountered, she would always be by his side and walk the path before them together with him.
The path ahead might be filled with thistles and thorns, even if it’s a path that led to eternal condemnation, she would feel no regrets in this life.
Everyone that stood on Futian Battle God’s body all clearly understood at this instant that from this moment onwards, they were destined to head forward together with Qin Wentian, their fates inevitably linked. They would obtain power that they only dreamt of having before, but they would also inherit the responsibilities that came with it.
The eyes of everyone turned ahead. They didn’t know how tough the path ahead would be to traverse, but all of their eyes were filled with determination.
The Futian Battle God took large strides forward, causing the earth to shake. His body was a thousand meters in height. He moved with great speed, traveling an unimaginably vast distance with every step.
This floating city used to be the main city of Ancient Azure Mystic, one could very well imagine how boundlessly vast it was. When the Futian Battle God sped forward, everyone felt as though they were teleporting through space. Although it appeared slow, traveling step by step, it was unknown how much distance they had already traversed.
Finally, the Futian Battle God came to an undamaged ancient palace. Everything here was magnificent in appearance and spectacular in sight. The palace was still in perfect condition.
“You guys rebuilt the divine residence?” The Skybreak Heavenly Deity spoke when he saw this. In front of him, there was a gigantic divine statue made of jade. However, Qin Wentian didn’t sense an absolute imposing might from it. He sensed a sensation of holy elegance and beauty instead.
Because, the appearance of this divine statue was actually a maiden. A maiden of such breathtaking beauty that she didn’t seem to be from the mortal world.
Qin Wentian seemed to have guessed at something as shock shook his heart.
“This, is the Imperishable Heaven Lord.” As expected, at this moment when the Skybreak Heavenly Deity spoke, Qin Wentian’s heart trembled even more fiercely.
“The Imperishable Heaven Lord was actually a maiden? And she was actually a woman of such beauty. He was in a daze as he stared at the statue before him. How hard was it for a woman to climb up all the way to the absolute peak of the martial dao? How terrifying was she?
Not only was Qin Wentian shocked, everyone here was as well. This was especially so for Beiming Youhuang, the Southern Phoenix Matriarch, the palace mistress of the Jadestage Immortal Palace, Matriarch Ji and the other females. The Imperishable Heaven Lord was the same as them, a woman. The cultivation potential of women was slightly weaker than men, but she was still able to climb all the way to the absolute peak.
Qin Wentian came down from the body of the Futian Battle God and bowed to the divine statue. She can be considered half his master, although he could only see her statue and wouldn’t be able to meet her in real life.
The others here all followed Qin Wentian’s actions and came down from the Futian Battle God’s body as they bowed to the divine statue. All experts deserved respect, this was especially so for those supremely powerful characters who died in the world-ending battle defending Ancient Azure Mystic back then. Even in the face of death, they weren’t willing to submit to the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. What spirit and courage!
The Futian Battle God took out his axe and waved it in the air. A beam of light shot up into the clouds, wanting to tear the sky asunder as a beam of axe light appeared in the sky.
Very swiftly, noises drifted over from afar as more and more zombies came to this area. Some of the zombies had golden eyes, some had white eyes, some were cleaved into two from the middle, some didn’t have legs.
Although these zombies were already dead, a strand of their wills had survived. When they saw Qin Wentian and his group appearing here, all of them glanced towards the Futian Battle God as they asked, “Futian, where did they come from?”
“The seal on Azure Mystic is relaxed and experts from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms came here in large quantities. As for this group of people, they ‘came’ from the prophecy.” Futian Battle God spoke. The various heavenly deities were all stunned by these words. The seal on Azure Mystic was relaxed? Doesn’t this mean that Ancient Azure Mystic would reappear? Also, they ‘came’ from the prophecy?
“The return of the undying?” Someone asked.
“He is the one.” The large finger of Futian Battle God pointed at Qin Wentian.
At this moment, countless gazes gleamed with sharpness. From the bodies of these zombies, many illusory spirit projections took on humanoid forms, projected by their wills. Although only their undying wills remained, everyone could tell that they were supreme characters at the absolute peak with just a look at them. They were like divinities, it was as though their wills alone were supreme and lofty existences.
“You have waited for countless millennia, and endured unspeakable loneliness for countless years. Today, everyone can search for a suitable junior to inherit your will.” The Futian Battle God spoke.
