“Since you have had such opportunities, I shall gift this item to you. With my present situation, other than the item maybe providing some spiritual sustenance, it is no longer of any use to me…”
Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness’s tone had a tinge of sorrow. As he said this, an unadorned oil lamp appeared beside Yi Yun and floated silently.
The oil lamp was made of a type of rock Yi Yun couldn’t place. It was in the form of an ancient lotus, but it did not look special on a cursory glance. However, when the lamp’s wick was lit one by one, igniting one tiny azure flame after another, this process would capture one’s gaze as though time around it was coming to a stop.
“Even by the side of Buddha’s azure lamp, one can go astray while cultivating. I shall bestow this Azure Lamp of Time to you…” Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness’s voice gradually vanished.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The landmass started to violently tremble, as though its core contained a terrifying power that was threatening to erupt at any time.
Primordial Chaos Daolord and company, who were being shaken by the sudden quake, had the urge to charge into the Chaos Gem mineral vein to see what exactly was happening. However, without the Chaos Gem armor, all they could do was watch helplessly without any means of taking action.
At that moment, with Yi Yun’s body transforming into that of a Primordial Chaos body bit by bit, his mind was also undergoing a change.
His mind seemed to travel across the cosmos amid the river of time. it was at that moment an azure lamp appeared by his side.
“This is?” The cold calm in Yi Yun’s eyes vanished. As he looked at the lamp, he seemed to sense that the spatial laws surrounding it was changing imperceptibly.
Everything, including some flying stellar fragments, slowed down. Even the dust began to slowly float in space.
“Azure Lamp of Time…” Yi Yun looked at the flickering flame as the name suddenly appeared in his mind.
He immediately understood what it meant for it to be given by Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness. It was an artifact that had time laws in it.
The River of Forgetfulness was the river of time. Time could wash away all, leaving everything forgotten. It could reduce any history or item to dust, giving it its name.
Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness grasped the laws of time, and this Azure Lamp of Time was his intrinsic artifact.
Could it be that…
This Azure Lamp of Time was the divine artifact that corresponded to the river of time!?
Each of the eight ancient Godly Monarchs seemed to have one intrinsic divine artifact that corresponded to one of their twelve respective Fey Gods.
Pure Yang Sword, Mirage Snow, Ascending Dragon Cauldron…
Some of the weapons had lost the Fey God’s soul in that ancient battle, drastically reducing their strength. However, there were weapons, such as the Ascending Dragon Cauldron, that managed to retain a portion of its Fey God’s soul, making it extremely powerful.
All these years, the Ascending Dragon Cauldron had aided Yi Yun tremendously. If nothing else, Yi Yun would have been in a great deal of trouble when he encountered Primordial Chaos Daolord in this primeval universe were it not for the Ascending Dragon Cauldron.
Now, the Azure Lamp of Time that Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness gave him was actually a divine artifact. How could Yi Yun not be excited about this?
Speaking of the control of time laws, Yi Yun had previously consumed the River of Forgetfulness’s water, but the River of Forgetfulness held an immense amount of water. In the end, just a scoop of the River of Forgetfulness’s water was really nothing much.
The River of Forgetfulness water would also constantly decrease in effectiveness. Once one consumed too much, it would be rendered ineffective.
If Yi Yun consumed the River of Forgetfulness’s water now, its effects would be extremely limited. If not, Yi Yun would not have spent twelve years in the Fey God Tomb.
What Yi Yun lacked the most now was time. So the Azure Lamp of Time appearing now was truly a timely assistance.
“Senior, by giving me this Azure Lamp of Time, what about you… You have been in slumber here for hundreds of millions of years by sealing off time. Without the Azure Lamp of Time, will you still be able to continue your slumber?” Yi Yun said inwardly to Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness.
He knew very well that the Azure Lamp of Time was Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness’s intrinsic artifact. Typically, an intrinsic artifact was cultivated along with one’s life. It was not simply another item.
For Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness to be able to forcefully seal off time to extend his lifespan by hundreds of millions of years despite being severely injured likely had much to do with the Azure Lamp of Time.
“I have little time left. It doesn’t matter. Back then, when the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch came to the 12 Empyrean Heavens and the Sinkhole, he opened up the savage lands, taught disciples, and sparked the beginnings of the Martial Dao… He created a land of heritage, letting geniuses of that generation have an opportunity to end. There, they would be tested, gaining opportunities in the process. That land is now the ancient battlefield upon which you stand. The World Monolith that towers over this ancient battlefield was also refined using Chaos Gems from this primeval universe by the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch…”
“So that’s how it is…” In fact, after hearing Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness mention the past, Yi Yun had a general guess that many things in the ancient battlefield, including the Divine Perish Hall, had been left behind by the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch.
“The Dao Originator Celestial Thearch left this stone chamber behind when he left. In it was the black Chaos Gem jade slip which I failed to gain any insights into. I believe that he was likely waiting for a fated someone. Unfortunately, I’m not that fated person the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch chose. I was unable to gain any insights. By waiting here, all I was doing was guarding the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch’s heritage. After I was severely injured in that ancient battle, I did not have much life left in me. Although I sealed off hundreds of millions of years, that time is meaningless to the sleeping me. I did not feel a thing.”
“I’m indebted to the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch for teaching me in the past. Although he never officially took me in as a disciple, I would have long turned to dust if not for His Majesty. Now that I can safely see the things Celestial Thearch left behind pass on to you, I no longer have any regrets.”
After Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness finished his sentence, there was silence. No matter how Yi Yun called out to him, there was no longer any response.
With a light sigh, Yi Yun looked at the Azure Lamp of Time that floated in front of him. He was feeling mixed emotions.
Clearly, Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness revered the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch greatly. Unfortunately, the black Chaos jade slip that the Celestial Thearch left behind was related to the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence!
It had nothing to do with Yi Yun being extremely perceptive. Instead, Yi Yun had seen what he presumed was the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch casting the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence inside the Purple Crystal, This was how he had gained insight into its wonders.
At the end of the day, it was all because Yi Yun had the Purple Crystal Origins in possession.
Yi Yun slowly injected his Yuan Qi into the Azure Lamp of Time, and at the next moment, the lamp emitted an azure beam of light that enveloped him.
Yi Yun entered the Azure Lamp of Time’s time domain. And at that moment, a black beam arrived in between Yi Yun’s palm.
Yi Yun took a few looks at the black blob of light before raising his palm. He injected the black blob of light into his consciousness.
Endless images and information instantly surged into Yi Yun’s mind. The immense amount of information made Yi Yun feel like his consciousness was on the brink of exploding.
While suffering an intense headache, Yi Yun tried his best to maintain his clarity of mind. Finally, the overwhelming feeling vanished, and one scene appeared before him.
A man wielding a spear was standing with his back facing Yi Yun.
And beneath his feet spun the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence.
The 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence seemed to contain all the devils of the world. Its forbidding demonic aura seemed to crush everything.
Dao Originator Celestial Thearch!
Although Yi Yun did not see the man’s face or hear his voice, he already knew that this man was the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch!
