Chapter 1272 – Uproar
One month after the fight for the Child of the Continent, the people were still excited about it. Not only were the people in the Western Kingdom Continent excited, but the people of the Great Thousand World were as well.
The Child of the Continent was a title well-known in the Great Thousand World. Every Child of the Continent was a genius who possessed the potential to be a Heavenly Sovereign… although only a handful actually managed to become one.
In any case, this title represented strength and potential. No one knew which Child of the Continent would become the next Heavenly Sovereign in the Great Thousand World. This was the reason the people in the Great Thousand World were concerned with everything that was related to the Child of the Continent, even though the Western Kingdom Continent was not well-known in the Great Thousand World.
Many of the top forces were concerned when the Western Kingdom Continent announced their next Child of the Continent, as they were thinking of recruiting the Child of the Continent into their forces. After all, every Child of the Continent possessed the potential to advance to the Heavenly Sovereign-level, and once he managed to break through, he would bring up the power of the force that he belonged to at the same time.
There was an uproar when they heard about the three Child of the Continents. They realized that among the three, one of them, who was a Lower Earthly Sovereign, had dominated the Battlefield of the Upper Earthly Sovereigns!
Some of the forces in the Great Thousand World were baffled by Mu Chen’s performance, and they started to speculate.
“What is Mu Chen’s background? How can he possibly win the title of the Child of the Continent, given his strength as only a Lower Earthly Sovereign?”
“Are the Upper Earthly Sovereigns in the Western Kingdom Continent that weak?”
“Mu Chen is not that simple. I have heard that he is related to the Flame Emperor. Could he be the Flame Emperor’s disciple?”
Luo Li had caught the people’s attention as well. After all, the Luo God Celestial Body was so beautiful and captivating. Moreover, Luo Li had displayed great talent that took the people by surprise. It was as though the people once again saw the Great Beauty who had caused the Heavenly Sovereigns to fall head over heels for her during the Primordial Age.
“The Child of the Continent at the Battlefield of the Lower Earthly Sovereigns is powerful as well! She has cultivated the Luo God Celestial Body!”
“She is so beautiful. I have heard that during the Primordial Age, the Luo God cultivated the most beautiful Sovereign Celestial Body and Method.”
“This lady has great potential. She may be able to advance to the Heavenly Sovereign-level in the future!”
Lin Dong Elder received the least attention. The people knew that he had been groomed by the West Heaven War Emperor and would remain loyal to him. It would be difficult to recruit him.
In any case, when news of the three Child of the Continents from the Western Kingdom Continent traveled to the Great Thousand World, there was an uproar.
In the Great Thousand World.
In the bustling city, an elder in linen clothes was walking among the people. He was holding a stick in his hand, and a red gourd was hanging at his waist. Although his body was bent, no matter how the crowd moved, they did not touch his body. It was as if he belonged to a different space.
The elder stopped walking and lifted up his murky eyes to look at the Spiritual Energy Screen on one side of the street. A fierce fight was being shown on the screen. This level of fight was not up to his standard, but when he looked at the screen, light burst out from his murky eyes.
After a long while, he smiled broadly. He took the gourd, gulped down a mouthful of liquid from it, and said, “Heaven is indeed kind. She is a good candidate…” Having said that, he suddenly turned around and disappeared into thin air.
The Great Thousand World, Myriad Islands Continent.
This was a unique continent formed by several islands. These islands had a greater mass than the other islands, and the largest island was comparable to those smaller continents.
At the center of the Myriad Islands Continent, a large island was surrounded by a bamboo grove. Clouds hung above the island, and it was packed with spiritual energy. This was a precious cultivation place.
If one were to look at it carefully, one would notice that the bamboo was bright like jade and exuded a nice, refreshing scent. By simply smelling it, one would calm down, and one’s spiritual energy would be revitalized.
This type of green bamboo was known as Spiritual Jade Bamboo. It could be made into a Spiritual Jade Stick that was lit during cultivation. It could enhance cultivation and prevent one from going into obsession.
This was a rare treasure to most of the cultivators. One Spiritual Jade Stick could fetch a price of about 10,000 drops of Sovereign Spiritual Liquid. This island was filled with Spiritual Jade Bamboo, and if one were to exchange it for Sovereign Spiritual Liquid, it would fetch at least 1,000,000,000… This amount was so large that even the top forces would not be able to come up with it.
Generally speaking, many people would be eyeing such a precious land, especially on the Myriad Islands Continent. However, with the Complete Earthly Sovereigns around, none of the forces had the audacity to eye the Spiritual Jade Island.
The Spiritual Jade Island was owned by one of the five ancient clans in the Great Thousand World. It was the Budur Ancient Clan’s estate! The Budur Ancient Clan had a strong base, and even the top forces with Heavenly Sovereigns dared not trifle with them.
The Spiritual Jade Island was thus the safest place in the Myriad Islands Continent. Any forces who visited this island were respectful and showed no sign of covetousness or animosity.
They knew that even if they were well-known in the Myriad Islands Continent, they were nothing in the eyes of the Budur Ancient Clan. If the Burdur Ancient Clan was enraged and sent their Heavenly Sovereign to deal with them, their forces would be immediately eliminated.
A spiritual light suddenly came down from the heavens and moved toward the center of the Spiritual Jade Island. A hill was situated there with plenty of greenery that made it look captivating.
Ancient stone towers loomed around the bamboo grove, and a figure landed on a stone tower that was deep within. An elder robed in gray sat cross-legged under the stone tower. There was not much spiritual energy around him, but indistinctly, an obscure aura emanated from him. The figure landed before the elder and kneeled down on one knee. The elder remained still and did not open his eyes. A voice then came out from his abdomen. “Did I not tell you not to disturb me when I am cultivating?”
The man kneeling before the elder shivered when he heard it. He immediately said, “Lord, we have found the perpetrator who has been listed on our clan’s Wanted List.”
A horrifying spiritual energy burst out from the elder’s body. He suddenly opened his eyes, looking furious. He stared at the man and asked, “The perpetrator stated on the Wanted List? Is he the one that the First Elder talked about?”
“It should be!” The man nodded and immediately waved his hand. A Spiritual Jade flew out and formed a Spiritual Energy Screen. On the screen, Mu Chen and Ling Zhanzi were in a fierce fight.
When Mu Chen took out the Crystal Pagoda, spiritual light burst out from the gray-robed elder’s eyes. His face twitched, and after a while, he took a long breath and said in amazement, “That… that is the Holy Pagoda!”
He was amazed, as the Holy Pagoda was rarely seen in the Budur Ancient Clan. Only the most talented ones had the opportunity to cultivate it. Among the younger generation in the Budur Ancient Clan, only one person had cultivated the Holy Pagoda, and he was the Holy Son. Many of the elders in their clan had wanted to groom the Holy Son to take on the position of the next Clan Leader.
The youth on the screen who had cultivated the Holy Pagoda was not the Holy Son!
“This guy looks unfamiliar, and he does not belong to our clan. However, he has cultivated the Holy Pagoda, thus he must possess our bloodline. I believe that he must be the perpetrator mentioned by the First Elder.”
The elder squinted. There were many sects in the Budur Ancient Clan, and he belonged to the sect of the Holy Son. They had been trying to get the Holy Son to become the next Clan Leader of the Budur Ancient Clan, and once they succeeded, they would be in control of the clan.
This guy who had appeared out of nowhere had cultivated the Holy Pagoda. Although he was a perpetrator and had no status, the elder did not want to see any changes to their plan.
As he thought of it, he suddenly looked ferocious, and the ambient temperature immediately dropped. He waved his hand, and his cold voice resounded in the area. “Get the Dragon-Elephant Protector…”
