Chapter #995 – 995 Valuables! Valuables!
It had been 500 years since Luo Feng came back from Nine Remoteness Space.
In the Land of Valuables of the Ancestral God School.
The end of the mountain range was not visible. Mountains stood shoulder-to-shoulder. Some of them were towering, and some were precipitous. There were lakes of all sizes between the mountains.
A fighter stood using his snake tail to wipe clean the rock behind him. “I haven’t seen a new valuable for a long time. They say there are countless valuables here. It wouldn’t make sense if valuables showed up all the time! No matter how many valuables there are, they will be gone in the end. It’s boring if the valuables don’t appear. Valuables coming into sight, that view is thrilling.”
Expectation flashed through the triangular eyes of the snake-tailed other race.
“I really hope that view is for me.”
“Haha…!” someone laughed all of a sudden. “You’ve been here tens of millions of times. Stop dreaming.”
“It’s Blade River Emperor,” said a nearby heir.
“Blade River Emperor’s here!” another replied.
“Blade River hasn’t shown up after coming back from Nine Remoteness Space. The first place he chose to land is in the Land of Valuables.”
“Where is he? Where is Blade River Emperor?”
Many heirs were looking in all directions, some even flew up in the sky, and soon, they all turned in the same direction. A silver-armored human youngster was flying directly to the tallest mountain in the Land of Valuables.
Luo Feng looked around and rejoiced in his heart. “Looks like I’m famous among the heirs of Ancestral God School.”
What made Luo Feng overjoyed was the progress he had made in the past 500 years, especially the maturing of his third body.
“It’ll take around 100 more years for my third body to mature, after which I can become undying. I need to come here before turning into an undying fighter.” Luo Feng glanced at the mountain range where there were innumerable valuables. “I’m a sector lord now. Perhaps some supreme beings prepared valuables for sector lord-level heirs. If I become undying, I won’t be able to take them anymore.”
His first target was the tallest of the mountains. Each of the 108 mountains stored one of the most precious of 108 valuables, and only 42 of them had been acquired by heirs. The others were still waiting for the suitable heirs.
“Look, Blade River Emperor went to the tallest mountains.”
“It seems Blade River Emperor came here for valuables, too. He came here once before, and after confronting Bei Shan Knight, he left instantly without taking a proper tour around the Land of Valuables. I thought he wasn’t interested in this place. Finally, he came.”
“108 most precious valuables are equally distributed among the 108 tallest mountains in the Land of Valuables. And his first target is the tallest one. He’s ambitious.”
Among the great beings of other races standing afar, some were jealous of or even hostile against Luo Feng.
With a loud snort, a figure with golden hair and eyes walked out from the apex of a mountain. His back was slightly bent, giving him the appearance of an aggressive beast. Bark Mirror Emperor!
“Bark Mirror Emperor, do you think Blade River Emperor can get a valuable?” asked an heir.
“He’s targeting the highest mountain,” several heirs beside him said.
Bark Mirror Emperor smirked. “The valuables on the highest mountains have been here ever since the Ancestral God School was founded. Rumor has it that they were placed by one of the ancestral gods. A few sector lord-level special life forms throughout the history have tried, but none of them could get a valuable. As for Blade River Emperor, he’s so unqualified for the Land of Valuables.”
The heirs around him nodded.
“Bark Mirror Emperor,” came a voice from a towering figure.
Bark Mirror Emperor followed the direction of the voice and spotted Bei Shan Knight.
Bei Shan Knight glanced at Luo Feng afar first, then said, “Blade River Emperor has disappeared for so many years. And now, the first place he goes is the Land of Valuables. It seems he really wants a valuable. I think his efforts will be in vain.”
“Begone!” Bark Mirror Emperor suddenly shouted.
Bei Shan Knight’s eye went wide in surprise.
“Humph! Do you think you can be my ally just because both of us hold grudges against that Blade River Emperor? You damn one-eyed thing who bullied an undying heir from my Northern Territory Alliance! Get the hell away from me.”
Bark Mirror Emperor showed his fangs and stared at Bei Shan Knight coldly. Bei Shan Knight’s body trembled with anger. He was a universe knight who had heard that Bark Mirror Emperor was ruthless, greedy, and unapproachable, which was why he hadn’t approached him until now. Now that there was a feud between Bark Mirror Emperor and Blade River Emperor, he thought they could be closer because of their commonality.
He was willing to become friends with Bark Mirror Emperor, who was already his equal. Once Bark Mirror Emperor became a universe knight, he could become a universe overlord with some proper training very soon. But Bark Mirror Emperor clearly did not share this sentiment.
“Okay, okay,” said Bei Shan Knight, so furious that his face was twitching. “Bark Mirror Emperor, how ruthless you are.”
Bark Mirror Emperor clenched his teeth, snorted, and flew away. Bark Mirror Emperor simmered. “Just who does he think he is?”
The heirs around him gazed at each other with dismay. Heirs like Bark Mirror Emperor and Zhu Chong Emperor were so powerful that they didn’t need to respect universe knights! There were differences between universe knights. Those who were universe overlords could crush Bark Mirror Emperor without any problem.
Even Bark Mirror Emperor and Zhu Chong Emperor needed proper training to become universe overlords after becoming universe knights.
Without a doubt, these special life forms—whose life levels were thousands of times higher than ordinary life forms—had great potential to become universe overlords, which was why the top superpowers like the Northern Territory Alliance and the Ancestral God School all valued special life forms and even gave them true treasures.
Luo Feng didn’t see the confrontation between Bark Mirror Emperor and Bei Shan Knight. He landed on the tallest of the mountains.
“The tallest mountain means the most precious valuable,” he said. “Rumor has it that an ancestral god put the valuable here personally.”
Luo Feng stood on the top of the mountain and walked around, but nothing happened. The rule said the valuable would show itself if an heir was qualified and stood on the mountain.
If there was no change… Luo Feng was not qualified. He had failed!
The heirs standing afar began to gossip about what they had just seen. As for Bark Mirror Emperor, he had a rare smile on his face.
“It is 90 percent possible that Blade River Emperor is Luo Feng,” he muttered. “Luo Feng is True Yan’s disciple.”
Bark Mirror Emperor snorted and stared at Luo Feng. Although he had hunted Luo Feng before, he wasn’t quite as belligerent now as he had been. He had, after all, almost been killed by True Yan Knight! That encounter was the closest he had ever been to death!
Bark Mirror Emperor was infuriated! He hated True Yan Knight and swore that he would kill True Yan once he became a universe knight.
Blade River Emperor was likely to be a disciple of True Yan, who went after him to avenge Blade River Emperor, which made Bark Mirror Emperor antagonistic against Blade River Emperor, too.
“True Yan. Blade River.” Bark Mirror said the two names in a low voice.
“Bark Mirror Emperor!” an heir called out. “Blade River Emperor failed again! This time, he went to the second tallest mountain, and he stopped by other mountains and lakes. Nothing happened!”
“He arrived at the second tallest mountain. Haha! Nothing happened at all.”
The heirs kept talking.
Bark Mirror Emperor smiled more and more broadly. He said, “It’s not that easy to get a valuable! The most precious 108 valuables here have been attracting heirs since the beginning of the universe, and only 42 of them have been taken. On average, the time elapsed between two valuables being taken is practically an eternity. The conditions are harsh.”
One mountain after another, one lake after another.
Luo Feng kept flying and landing, flying and landing…
Failed! Failed! Failed!
Luo Feng failed again and again, from the tallest mountain to the sixtieth tallest mountain. He also stopped by lots of other places along the route, which took him tens of hours. Meanwhile, undying fighters watched while drinking glasses of wine.
“It’s so difficult to open a valuable,” Luo Feng said.
However, he did not panic. He had come here, after all, simply to try.
“It seems lots of other races hate me.”
Luo Feng flew to a canyon and glanced at the onlookers afar. In the past tens of hours, he had been watched. Most of the heirs were just watching him try for fun, while some were actually jealous or hostile toward him. In fact, most weren’t hostile toward Luo Feng personally; instead, they were hostile toward the whole human race. The human race was a peak race in the universe and had committed countless massacres in the universe. Other races wanted to kill them!
Humans were ruthless when it came to killing other races, and generation after generation, many races had learned to loathe humans.
“The peak races became peak races through killing! You can’t be a peak race if you’re merciful. You need resources to become a peak race, and you need to kill to get the resources!” This was what True Yan had told Luo Feng once when they were drinking together.
Presently, Luo Feng spotted some other races flying toward him, cursing the human race. However, Luo Feng just sneered.
Those who were not his kin were sure to be of a different heart. Everyone was fighting for their own race, and there was no right or wrong.
Humans needed to kill or enslave a plethora of animals to survive on earth. If humans were not pitiless enough, they might have been killed off by those other animals. The same rule applied.
Luo Feng had such a strong will that he disregarded all the curses. “This is the universe. The weak are the prey of the strong.”
Luo Feng arrived at the 106th tallest mountain. He didn’t have much hope by now. However, just as Luo Feng landed on the 106th tallest mountain…
Hong, long, long!
The entire mountain started to quiver, which attracted the attention of all the heirs present. Suddenly, hustle and bustle filled the Land of Valuables.
