God Emperor Chapter 1116
After reaching the pinnacle of the Eighth Level, Zhang Ruochen’s abilities had skyrocketed.
Right now, he closed his eyes and sensed the newly acquired power while practicing the Luo Water Fist Technique.
The Dragon and Elephant Prajna Fist Technique was harsh and strong; the Luo Water Fist Technique was soft and gentle. Even if he only pushed his fist forward, he could create semi-transparent energy ripples in the air.
After finishing the 36 moves, the chaotic Masculine Qi within him calmed down. The flames around his feet were pulled back inside.
He let out a puff of white air. The breath transformed into a river of mist that stretched for miles. It hung in the air in its curvy form.
When Headmaster Luo Xu taught me the Luo Water Fist Technique, did he want me to use its softness to counter the Masculine Qi of the Dragon and Elephant Prajna Fist?
At Luo Xu’s cultivation level, he wouldn’t say many things outright or explain in detail, but Zhang Ruochen remembered this favor. They’d only met once, but Luo Xu had taught him the Consummate Skill.
This kind of temperament and heart demanded respect.
The branches of the Divine Sky-Connecting Tree shook lightly. A beam of Spiritual Power came from the trunk to communicate with Zhang Ruochen.
“The Blue Dragon Void World lasted a total of 12,960,000 years. It is perfectly 100 yuanhui years. This means that the World Spirit has passed through 99 minor trials and will soon go through the first major trial.”
Zhang Ruochen raised his head. He replied to the Divine Sky-Connecting Tree with his Spiritual Power, “Senior, are you trying to tell me something?”
“In the field of time, one yuanhui year is 129,600 years. Every one yuanhui year, a world will go through a minor trial. Every 100 yuanhui years, there will be a major trial. Whether big or small, the world’s space will expand relatively during the trial.”
Zhang Ruochen was shocked. He didn’t think that a world would have trials and grow too. Did everything in the universe have spirituality?
“If the Blue Dragon Void World passes this major trial, how much bigger will it become?”
“At least two times,” the Divine Sky-Connecting Tree said. “However, with the Blue Dragon Void World’s heritage, it won’t be able to pass it successfully. It will be destroyed.”
It was clear that the Divine Sky-Connecting Tree knew that Zhang Ruochen would try to compete for the World Spirit. This was why it was telling him information about the Blue Dragon Void World.
It continued, “The World Spirit and native cultivators of the void world won’t be wiling to go extinct. It will try some methods to make the void world continue on.”
“What methods will they use?” Zhang Ruochen asked.
“Perhaps by swallowing the World Spirit of another void world, or turning another void world into the new Blue Dragon Void World. It’s also possible that the World Spirit will choose an Heir to inherit the world. It will develop a new world within the Heir.”
Doubt filled Zhang Ruochen’s eyes. “The World Spirit can choose an Heir to inherit the entire world?”
“Yes. A true Heir of the world will be able to contain an entire world within them. They can utilize a part of the world’s power. It is very different from the Kunlun Field’s nine Heirs.”
“Of course, no matter what method they choose, they must first preserve the World Spirit and not let the Kunlun’s Field cultivators steal it. Once the Blue Dragon Dynasty chooses a talent, combining him with the World Spirit and turning him into the Heir, they may begin massacring. This will be a disaster for you all.”
Zhang Ruochen nodded. His expression grew serious. “You are saying that if we fight for the World Spirit, we must succeed. We must not let the Blue Dragon Dynasty’s Heir be born. If we fail, we will die.”
“Yes, that is correct. The path is under your feet. Your choice can be made in an instant. If you don’t wish to take such large risks, it’s best to leave the Blue Dragon Void World now. Don’t stay here.”
Zhang Ruochen smiled. “Since the World Spirit can swallow another void world’s spirit, can you absorb the Blue Dragon Void World’s spirit?”
“Of course,” the Divine Sky-Connecting Tree replied. “Do you want to steal the Blue Dragon Void World’s spirit to expand the scroll world and develop into an advanced void world?”
“What kind of changes will occur in the scroll world after absorbing the Blue Dragon Void World’s spirit?”
“There will be enormous changes. The most obvious one is that the Universe Spiritual Map will no longer be able to hold the world. The scroll will shatter and the world will become visible.
“Next, the world will have to be borne by your body. By then, it will no longer be called a scroll world. Instead, it will become the Universe World, while you will become the Heir. This is both a great and horrible thing for you.”
Zhang Ruochen was confused. If he was the world’s Heir, he’d be able to utilize a portion of the world’s power. This should be a good thing, so why was it a bad thing too?
The Divine Sky-Connecting Tree seemed to sense his questions. The Spiritual Power waves continued coming. “The more one bears, the heavier the burden. It is not easy to bear an entire world. You must give in much more than you can imagine. You won’t be able to break free from its burden unless you can become a deity.”
It didn’t reveal the specific disadvantages, but Zhang Ruochen could tell that it wasn’t something the average man could withstand.
It continued. “You don’t need to consider it all now. After all, it won’t be easy to take the World Spirit of the Blue Dragon Void World. I can sense ten native Saints gathered within the capital.”
“So what?” Zhang Ruochen asked. “According to information from the Ministry of War, the native Saints have long escaped and hid in other void worlds. Plus, if Saints remain in the Blue Dragon Void World, it will cause large regions of the space to collapse.”
“Some native Saints have indeed escaped,” the Divine Sky-Connecting Tree said. “However, some have also stayed. If they gather elsewhere, the space will definitely collapse. Staying in the capital won’t though. They are protected by the World Spirit there.”
“Of course, the World Spirit is very weak now. It can’t utilize much power—it can at most bear ten native Saints. They’ll fight to become the main force of the World Spirit. The Heir that the World Spirit chooses may be amongst them too.”
There were ten Saints in the capital. This was appalling news. Once it spread, more forces would definitely back out of the competition.
“I hope that they’re all low-level Saints. That way, I can still fight against them.”
With the current weak state of the World Spirit, it probably could only bear ten low-level Saints. After all, they were the weakest and easiest to protect.
Of course, even low-level Saints had differences in skills. Even if they had saint bodies, those in the lower level were unable to fight with those in higher levels. They were at most the strongest of the lower level.
It was evident that there were big differences between those in the lower level.
“If there really are ten native Saints in the capital, then the World Spirit must be underground in the capital. Otherwise, the capital’s space would have collapsed long ago.”
Zhang Ruochen finally had a specific target. Thus, he left the Divine Sky-Connecting Tree and went to a city within the scroll world. He went to a four-story tiled restaurant and ordered some dishes.
Then he sent out sound waves to notify the others and call them over.
Blackie had captured many laborers years ago to construct the city. This was one of many. The cities were of quite large scales.
Half a year ago, Princess White Li had asked Zhang Ruochen in hopes that he could have the survivors of the ancient city stay within the scroll world. Zhang Ruochen had agreed but with conditions.
At that time, Princess White Li had only thought that the survivors were pitiful and wanted to save them. She hadn’t thought too much, so she’d agreed to all of Zhang Ruochen’s conditions. She even swore that she’d never go back on her word, no matter what.
Even she didn’t know what she’d exactly agreed to.
It pertained to the lives of millions, after all. Nothing was more important than saving them. She was willing to agree to everything. One must admit that Princess White Li was very kind and innocent.
Of course, Zhang Ruochen had agreed to her, not only because she was valuable and should be kept close. It was because Sikong One, Sikong Two, Sun Dadi, Qing Mo and the others all agreed and hoped that Zhang Ruochen could save those natives.
If he let them die, they would become upset. If he saved the natives, they would trust him more, and it would unite the Sacred Sect more tightly.
Princess White Li was the first to arrive. She flew to the fourth level and appeared to the left of Zhang Ruochen. Her long snow-white tail dragged on the ground. She looked just like a beautiful demoness.
“The city lord comes so quickly.” Zhang Ruochen smiled.
“I live in White Li City. I’ll obviously be the fastest.” Princess White Li fluttered her lashes. Her long lashes shone with fluorescent light.
There were millions of natives living in the city. It was called White Li City and governed by Princess White Li. Now, Zhang Ruochen had officially included her in the Sacred Sect. Even if she recovered her memories and wanted to leave, they would still be connected.
A while later, Blackie, Huang Yanchen, Qing Mo, Sikong One, Sikong Two, Murong Yue, and Sun Dadi and Zhao Shiqi, who’d gone to get information from the capital, all hurried over to the restaurant. They regrouped with Zhang Ruochen.
“I was so angry in the capital that I thought my lungs would explode,” Sun Dadi gritted out with hatred. The red hairs on his head were all standing up straight.
