Staffer Zhang was slightly stunned having heard what he did. However, being a modern person, he recovered relatively quickly.
‘This old man must be the kind that worships the powerful. They would believe in monarchy, in saviors, in god, in the Heavens before they would believe that citizens can manage themselves on their own.’
As the old man paused, he pointed out a question, “What if this ‘God’ you talked about making a mistake? Who will correct him? Who will have the ability to correct?”
“God doesn’t make mistakes…” Elder Ancestor Bai said as if pride would overflow from inside him at any moment.
Staffer Zhang was stunned silent. At that moment, he seemed to see a godly shine gloss over the old man…
He could not fight that feeling, the godly aura was different from the Dragon God’s aura. The latter was vast and majestic but dangerless, like the sapphire-blue sky.
The godly aura that the old man exuded, on the other hand, was one of deadly touch!
In comparison, the city he was in was comfortable enough. As for the ‘God’ described by the old man, he can accept it himself…
‘Mm, I should appear shocked for a bit, this old man is just an idiot…’
Staffer Zhang said with a stunned face, “Is that so? In that case, it must be quite efficient. Under the leadership of ‘God’, the race would advance really quickly, how would normal races compare with them?”
“Hehe, mortals are shortsighted and tended to be avaricious. They would rather muddle through life. Only under the administration of God can their largest potential be brought out.” Elder Ancestor Bai looked at the crowd outside the glass wall of the elevator and sighed.
“Yes, yes, old sir. Like me, before the lunar crisis happened, I’d lived my life, unexamined, I didn’t make any big mistakes, but I also didn’t have any goals until I joined here…” agreed Zhang as he felt his pocket vibrate, indicating the higher-ups had made the necessary arrangement.
He made up his mind and started talking more enthusiastically with the old man, agreeing with him in his best ‘you’re a wise man, you are right’ expression.
Elder Ancestor Bai nodded and said gladly, “You’re still clear-headed. Too bad, some other people are not and just wanted to enjoy whatever is right in front of them, forgetting the bigger picture. When their time comes, it would already be too late.”
As Elder Ancestor Bai’s words came out, a voice rang from the sky.
“That’s right, your time is up today. King of Greater Rats, your sins are mountainous, in the name of the Heavens, I shall punish you!”
Hearing that, Elder Ancestor Bai’s face twitched but without any fear.
He glanced at Staffer Zhang and said calmly, “Mortals are mortals, after all. Did you think I wouldn’t notice your little action? Your little move may have cost you your life, aren’t you regretting it?”
The normal staffer’s face paled and started shivering. However, he said bravely, “I am scared, but I’m even more scared my home would be destroyed by ambitionists like you!”
“Is that so?” Elder Ancestor Bai shook his head and disappeared from the elevator.
Staffer Zhang was drenched in cold sweat. For a moment, he thought he was dead.
After that, he mocked himself, “What’s so scary about death? It’s not like I can’t be a ghost… At the very least, I’ll jump over next door to become an insect.”
That was the real reason he could be brave. The old man seemed to have seen through that, what a scary old man…
He glanced out of the glass elevator. If he was right, the voice must be the Venerable Dragon God.
As soon as he arrives, the old man’s tricks would not do any good.
At this point, he stared at the crowd from afar. They seemed to have had no idea that danger was looming over them.
However, this danger would definitely disappear just like every danger before this.
‘So it’s better that they don’t know,” thinking that, he looked up at the sky.
“Old Greater Rat Demon, you have sinned tremendously, and yet you still come into my domain. You have a paradise to go to, but you choose to come to hell instead 1 …” said Vigilante A lightly.
“Heh, you know your domain is like hell, don’t you?” Elder Ancestor Bai copied his tone without a single shred of fear.
“Billionaire Host, this old rat’s so mouthy,” the System complained, “no one had talked back to me like that before.”
“Yeah, usually they would not even have the chance to talk before you smacked them dead…” Fang Ning said speechlessly.
The System whined, “Whose side are you on? Why aren’t you canting for me?”
“Alright, alright. I’ll cant for you.” Fang Ning was helpless. At least, in terms of smartmouthing, he was much more advanced than the System who only knew how to copy-and-paste from the internet…
Fang Ning immediately began to speak and the System retold it with Vigilante A.
A battle would soon be initiated, so he dared not show up. Being safe was still the most important.
Vigilante A answered, “To some people, a safe place is where hell is. These people were worried that the world is not in chaos and are the most despicable villains. And you are one of the most hidden ones!”
“Heh, you’re still as brazen as ever. No wonder even Cang Lang was outtalked by you. Do you think I didn’t think about your home advantage before I come here?”
As he spoke, Elder Ancestor Bai’s body shuddered suddenly as beams of yellow light bloomed from his body.
“You’re walking the Path of Heavenly Punishment, the will of the Heavens is your will. You should know what this means. Now, do you still want to kill me?” Elder Ancestor Bai’s body was glowing as he gloated.
“Sss, this old rat has so many Heavenly Merit?” The System was shocked before it muttered, “If only those would drop when I defeat him…”
Fang Ning said speechlessly, “Heavenly Merit is not a treasure, how would it drop?”
“Can’t you talk to your Axiom Daddy? Ask if the Heavenly Merit can be transferred?” The System was persistent.
“Heh, I will not.” Fang Ning refused without hesitation.
“Why? The bigger picture is that it’s important for our lives.” The System already learned to pressure its host with the ‘bigger picture’.
“Uh… I could only hear Axiom Daddy, not talk to it.” Forced to a corner, Fang Ning could only expose his own weakness.
“That’s a shame. I’ll kill this old rat then.” As it spoke, the System began to invoke its strength.
“Wait a second, aren’t you worried that it will lower your Heavenly Merit?”
“What am I worried about? My core principles are not set by that idiot Heavenly Axiom. As long as it fits my heroic spirit, the Path of Heavenly Punishment has nothing to do with me. That old rat has been bright red on the System Map since the beginning of time,” said the System confidently.
“Wait, just delay it a little. I’ll go ask someone,” Fang Ning interrupted him, he was not single-minded like the System.
“What are you trying to do?”
“I have to make sure everything wouldn’t turn to turd after you kill the old rat. I’ve said it before, he’s leading billions of Greater Rats. As soon as he died, the world would be plunged into chaos,” explained Fang Ning.
“Go and ask now. The old rat can’t run now.”
As he spoke, Vigilante A extended his palm while conjuring a sky-blue orb.
Following that, the entire arcane realm shook slightly.
Sunlight disappeared, the breeze stopped, everything was silent, the entire arcane realm was like it was on pause.
A major change like that made everyone below move frantically.
Fortunately, emergency lights lit up automatically, stopping further hysteria from spreading.
“Oh, this is a first-class emergency, quick, go to the nearest shelter!” Someone was quick to remind people to be in order.
Elder Ancestor Bai did not care about the people below. He frowned slightly. His enemy’s reaction had been out of his expectation.
‘Does he really want to risk his path of cultivation to suppress me?
‘Does he not think of our personal relationship?
‘My son is still working for him.
‘Hmph, I’m also a little naive. Aren’t humans like that?
‘The war between two nations was happening, who would consider their personal relationship?
‘Looks like I need to be more serious, or I might really be defeated here.’
At this point, Elder Ancestor Bai steeled his face and readied himself.
The man in front of him had already vanquished countless demons and devils, and they were at his domain. Needless to say, the danger he was facing was fatal. As long as he could escape, it would be considered a success.
