China’s Truth Department Headquarters.
Ren Ruofeng received a message on WeChat and was immediately overjoyed.
The ‘Rathunt Plan’ had been temporarily stalled because Elder Ancestor Bai exhibited Heavenly Protection.
Fortunately, the moon crisis ended without incident and only brought about a few tsunamis. Thankfully, the great migration was timely, which prevented large amounts of casualties by the coast. There were only severe material and infrastructural damage.
Otherwise, he would have to undertake a great responsibility. If things went wrong, the best case scenario would be another lay-off incident.
This matter made him deeply understand that manpower had its limits sometimes. Fate could not be measured.
Especially now that the Heavenly Axiom showed itself, it was more dangerous than ever. One should not try in vain to scheme against the Heavenly Axiom; that will only end in a miserable death.
Humans were extremely insignificant compared to the Earth. They were just parasites.
Now there was finally a turnaround. That Elder Ancestor Bai had actually stepped into his own grave. He was hanging his god of longevity. He must have gotten tired of living for so long to actually run into the Venerable One’s Morality Realm.
Was that not a death wish?
He immediately sent a reply, “Be sure to suppress that person. I have arrangements regarding the Greater Rats’ interior. They won’t cause any disorder.”
‘Well, this is really the Heavenly Axiom’s cycle. Even after going round in circles, it’s still the Venerable One that has to personally settle it.’
He had originally wanted that person to accomplish that, but he never thought that the other party would fail both times he used a borrowed knife.
Indeed, no man is wise at all times. When it came to scheming against Elder Ancestor Bai, both the other party and he were inferior in stratagem.
Thankfully, that person went insane and stepped into his own grave.
For a long time, he had hidden underground. The Venerable One could not take the initiative to drop him and suppress him, lest the Greater Rats started a revolt.
Now that he had left his central administration and departed in a disguise, he would have to take take the risk of being captured by others.
There were many such precedents in history. The Little Conqueror Sun Ce was a prime example. Although he was called ‘conqueror’, he had been injured by several aristocratic aides, and finally died a sullen death. He had indeed deserved the title of ‘Conqueror’.
That old man’s whereabouts were secretive and his strength was high, making it hard for the Intelligence Organization to track him. If he had not entered the urn himself, it might really have been impossible to find him.
The reason why he went to Morality City could be guessed. It was to persuade the sole heir and then go home and ascend the throne.
It seemed that he had not given up at all.
People were like that. They always said that they would elect the worthy to succeed.
However, when the critical time arrived, they would still look towards their family first.
The power of passing down a bloodline far surpassed many’s imaginations.
‘What a shame. That old man ended up falling to his only weakness.
‘I wonder if the Venerable One planned this long ago. If it was, then it’s really too terrifying. His wisdom is far more superior than mine.
‘No wonder the Dragon God decided to possess him.
‘As for me, I’m only fit for a pig’s head. Although my capabilities aren’t small, I can’t crush my opponent. I’m only an auxiliary artifact, not to mention an extremely lazy person who only knows how to sleep all day.’
“Hey, Oldman Ren, that wasn’t very nice of you. You secretly criticized me. You really hurt my heart.” The jade white piglet sculpture suddenly emerged from his body and said unhappily.
“Stop messing around, I need you to do something.” Ren Ruofeng carried on nonchalantly, “The Venerable One and Old Bai are gonna have a showdown. Give me a live broadcast of it.”
“Alright, let me sense if there’s anyone there I marked with Heaven’s Eye.”
“Make it quick.”
After a while, the jade white piglet sculpture excitedly said, “Wow, how lucky. I’ve marked hundreds and thousands of with Heaven’s Eye all over China, and one actually entered Morality City.”
“Okay, hurry and start the broadcast.”
From this, it could be seen how amazing auxiliary artifacts were to be able to ignore distance and detect different areas with sight wards 1 , similar to game maps.
Furthermore, this ward was flexible and could change according to a person’s actions.
In Ren Ruofeng’s opinion, artifacts like these had great uses, one of which was to find places where the races lived.
‘Sigh, the Elder Ancestor and Celestial Swine are taking a lot of trouble to ensure their bloodline is passed on.’
He now had a little understanding on Elder Ancestor Bai’s methods. After all, although Path of Longevity was good, he should still prepare a backup. If he failed, he could still use the traditional method of passing down his bloodline to transmit his life.
While his mind was overflowing in thoughts, a three-dimensional live broadcast already appeared in thin air.
In mid-air, Vigilante A and Elder Ancestor Bai were having a confrontation.
Anything could happen at any moment on a battlefield.
Their expressions both looked calm, but one of them seemed to have thought of a plan, while the other seemed to be planning for a way to escape.
“It’s true that you’ll have the advantage here,” Elder Ancestor Bai saw that the Heavenly Merit could not intimidate Vigilante A and suddenly said, “but aren’t you afraid of breaking these fragile little jars below? That unworthy son of mine said that it had taken more than a year of painstaking effort and countless funds and manpower to slowly build it up.”
He lightly continued, “As for me, I can destroy it with just one hand. That wise human said it well, destruction will always be easier than construction. Words from the ancients are absolutely right.”
“This old man is really despicable. He even dares to threaten us now. How repulsive.” The System really was annoyed.
For the stingy and miserly Sir System, it accumulated things like these through hard work. It worked endlessly for its private funds and had no choice but to repeatedly ransack from the Rich-man Host and made quite a few concessions because of this.
If push really came to shove, it would cause trouble in many places.
“Rich-man Host, what do we do now?” It could only appeal for help from a certain lazy person.
“What else can you do? We can’t back down now, so we’ll just have to brave through it.” Fang Ning was also annoyed by this wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing old man’s words.
He had mentioned Cang Gongzi, which reminded Fang Ning that it would not be very righteous to let Sir System kill his father…
This old rat was indeed cunning. Traps were hidden in his every word.
He considered and then decided, “If they break, then just let them break. Besides, you’re in control of Heaven and Earth here. When you suppress him, consider Cang Gongzi’s feelings as well as the safety of our City. Don’t kill him yet. This old rat is very good at enduring. I believe that as long as he has hope for his survival, he’ll definitely struggle to live.”
“I got it.” The System immediately realized.
Elder Ancestor Bai watched Vigilante A go into a daze as if considering his words.
He wanted to use the chance to immediately escape, but unfortunately for him, this realm was completely controlled by the other party. Heaven and Earth had been sealed, along with any other means of escape.
‘It’s like I really stepped into my own grave.’ He mocked himself.
Suddenly, he saw bouts of golden Buddhism light flashing on Vigilante A’s body, like glowing rays, shining in all directions.
At the same time, Buddhist sounds started as well, accompanied by the sound of bells. It was exceptionally dignified and solemn, making one shiver from head to toe.
Vigilante A brought his own background music. He seemed to let every Boss see him appear on stage like that.
While Elder Ancestor Bai was thinking of a way out of this predicament, he heard Vigilante A say Buddhist mantras.
“The sea of bitterness has no bounds, turn your head to see the shore. Ambition swallows the sky and everything goes to naught.”
“Since you have worked for the Heavenly Axiom, I’ll give you a chance to atone for your crimes.”
“I want to suppress you in this Morality City for five hundred years. You’ll be threaded on by thousands and trampled by tens of thousands. You’ll carry all living things on your back, experience the hardships of worldly affairs, and understand clearly the Path of Morality.”
Elder Ancestor moved after hearing his words, just like Fang Ning anticipated. He was a person of great endurance, with a fate larger than the Heavens.
He would never choose to take down Vigilante A along with himself. To him, it would be extremely senseless to destroy the other party’s possessions just to vent anger right before his death.
He then closed his eyes and sat down cross-legged in the air. Bouts of mysterious yellow light flashed on his body again, accompanied by threads of faintly discernible red light.
At that moment, from the vault of heaven, a raised Buddhist hand slammed down to suppress him!
“What a shame, that insufferably arrogant old man just sat there waiting to be captured and willingly got himself bound. He really didn’t exceed my expectations. No wonder One couldn’t calculate it. These big Bosses from the Upper Realm are all proficient in saving their lives. They won’t be like those brainless Bosses from games that only know how to give out experience and loot.” Ren Ruofeng sighed after watching to the end.
Just like that, an old man entangled with himself for twenty years vanished like smoke. He would not be able to come into being again for at least another five hundred years.
With this thought in mind, his body shivered. He suddenly felt slightly dull. Was he the final victor?
The taste of this victory did not taste as well as he imagined it would… or perhaps it was that this victory was orderly, so it was not enough to excite him?
