To the east of Qi City, on the railway track of a steel scrap mill.
A golden train operated slowly and stopped by a platform that was temporarily under construction.
A group of people entered, while another group exited.
A short skinny elder followed the entering crowd and slowly paced into the packed carriage.
Wherever he passed, the people around unknowingly gave some space, so to avoid bumping into him.
After he entered the carriage, he looked for an empty seat and settled down.
Right then, a layer of water mist appeared gradually on the window, whereby a face emerged within not long after.
The other passengers did not notice this, only the short skinny elder sensed it immediately and turned to look at the window.
Facing that mysterious face, he did not panic at all, he just smiled very plainly.
His smile seemed to be saying, “Come hit me, come hit me”…
The face in the water mist became outraged instantly but it grinned and bore it, then hid away quickly.
‘Hehe, I didn’t think that I had to use Vigilante A’s prestige to scare this powerful enemy away today.’
The short skinny elder thought. He was somewhat mocking himself but was also a little satisfied.
Not long after, the golden train set out, it moved slowly on the old tracks.
It did not take long before it vanished in the air.
The passengers still seemed to be unaware of this but the short skinny elder furrowed his brows, as if he was also clueless about how this artifact was able to shuttle through the void.
Commuting through the void was not an easy task, this was evident when referred to those fellows who descended from the upper realm.
They were extremely powerful but due to their travels through the void, their strength became severely hampered, which caused them to be harmed by his traps.
As for this artifact, it was able to transcend through the void into another space, bringing thousands of people at one time.
Those artifacts mentioned in myths from this realm were probably nothing more than this.
‘Unfortunately, a precious treasure like this belonged to Vigilante A. He’s truly more blessed by Heaven than I am.
‘Perhaps when I become God in the future and fulfill those promises, I’ll be able to turn things around.’
Just as Elder Ancestor Bai was deep in his thoughts, a voice was heard.
“Dear passengers, we’ll be arriving at Morality City Station soon. Please pack your luggage and retrieve your items, and be prepared to disembark.
“Dear passengers, Morality City was built under the guidance of the Venerable Dragon God, as well as the supervision of Cang Gongzi and Sir Dragon Carp. Currently, the construction is in Phase 2, the main facilities are complete whereas the ancillary facilities are being built. This city is showered with the Dragon God’s radiance since the day it was built, and is slated to a mighty dragon city!”
The announcer’s voice was filled with excitement. Though this had been broadcasted many times, it carried a different feeling each time.
This was because the announcer personally witnessed this city turned from nothing into something, from small to big, and was built speedily.
“This is too exciting, every time I see this great city, I’m left in awe.” A young passenger could not wait to stand up from his seat, he then looked out from the windows.
There were many people who were like him, whom all looked outside one after another.
Eventually, the train decelerated.
With the ongoing speed, it became easier for everyone to have a clear picture of the scenery outside.
What welcomed them was a vast green flatland, which was so flat it looked like it was laid out by a carpet.
“Every time I look at this land, I think about the game, Craft the World. The land there is as flat as the one here, building railway tracks and highways is simply the easiest task.” Thrilled, that young passenger described to some first-timers.”
“Yes, the land here is surprisingly flat, I can’t even find an uneven spot. If not for the buildings as markers, I’m afraid we’ll be able to see very far from here.” Somebody agreed.
As a matter of course, they had no idea that this was intentionally instructed by Fang Ning the game master.
A flat terrain was a prerequisite for developing cities. Generally, world-class big cities were built on flat terrain, only very few were exceptions, which were also because they had other huge teleportation advantages.
“This is really a land gifted by Heaven, a land as flat as this can’t even be found outside.” Somebody even exclaimed.
Upon hearing them, Elder Ancestor Bai furrowed his brows slightly, he seemed to have understood something.
He looked out the window too. This was the place being developed by his unfilial son, his only successor…
‘As expected, it’s a flatland. In comparison, the construction of Greater Rat Clan’s underground city faced innumerable difficulties.
‘Were those rock masses easy to drill through?
‘The rock masses disintegrated and collapsed. Lava, underground water…each of this are big enemies in construction.
‘Unknowing of how many greater rats were sacrificed and how much magical power was consumed, our underground kingdom desired by many was finally built.
‘Yet Vigilante A was able to construct his city with ease on this heavenly gifted land. I believe this place wasn’t flat in the beginning but he’s the owner of the arcane realm, he can do as he pleases, and can modify the terrain if he wants to.
‘He only needs to consume stored powers from the arcane realm.’
When he thought about this, he became mad again.
His unfilial son neglected his business in the Greater Rat Clan, and traveled a long way just to contribute to another person’s construction. What spirit was this?
A fool’s spirit.
Using comments from the human internet, he was said to have a crooked a** that was crooked to the limit.
This time, he was here to see if he could persuade it.
“I’m not going back.” A young man with an upright look that looked somewhat young but firm enough shook his head.
“Why? That is where your home is, it is where your roots are. No matter how well you do here, won’t your work be to prompt others and to be forgotten? In the end, this place… Belongs to Vigilante A, what will you get?” The short skinny elder uttered.
“No, the Venerable One never claimed this place to himself. This is Morality City, it is a place shared by all who possess morality and have kindness in them. Everyone works together, and share the fruits together. The Venerable One never seizes the fruits of another.” Cang Gongzi replied firmly.
“You fool, you’ve been completely used!” Elder Ancestor Bai could not help but spit on him.
In front of others, he never revealed such agitation, it was only in front of this son that he found himself unable to control his own emotions.
Cang Gongzi replied faintly, “Use? In the eyes of ambitious figures like you, I suppose the relationship between humans is just to use and be used, am I right? Other than that, terms like friendliness, love, sharing, and happiness are isolated from you?”
“…” Looking at him, Elder Ancestor Bai composed himself, he spoke after remaining silent for a while, “It looks like your cultivation path has progressed again, but how far can you go? You must know that a human’s heart is the most fickle thing. You might get happiness and satisfaction out of them today, but you’ll taste hatred and jealousy from them tomorrow.”
“As long as I’ve had it before, I don’t ask for it to stay forever. Live in happiness, not in eternal loneliness.” Cang Gongzi shook his head. “You won’t understand if you don’t, you won’t get it even if I explain it.”
“Yes, perhaps I understand but I don’t agree with it. When you get on in years, and time becomes a thing of the past, you’ll regret that you didn’t choose the path of immortality while you had the time to.” Elder Ancestor Bai shook his head too.
Dragon Carp was dizzy from looking at the old man and the young man shaking their heads, it laid in the fish tank as it could not be bothered to watch anymore.
“It looks like I might not be able to persuade you, I’ll look at your result then.” Elder Ancestor Bai left after leaving those words.
