Shadow Hack Chapter 679
After hearing the word 'crisis', a hint of astonishment appeared in Li Yunmu's eyes. Could it be that even after the secret genetic code was destroyed, the Origin World's fate hadn't been changed?
[How could you possibly not know? After you devoured the secret genetic code, the position of stars has changed. The fates have suddenly stopped revolving in their orbits. The appearance of Big Dipper has always been the sign of a great catastrophe. I fear that the judgment day is about to come. Earth's sixty-six projections will disappear for all time.
[In other words, the world in which you grew up will no longer exist anymore!]
Li Yunmu's body almost went soft. His aim for returning to the Origin World was to settle the crisis. The system had clearly told him that as long as he obtained the secret genetic code, everything would be over.
But at that moment, it informed him that because of his actions, the sixty-six planes still hadn't escaped the crisis. Then what exactly did he need to do to resolve it?
[You already possess the Great Devouring Technique. You need to obtain the ancient secret method from the Ancient Lands about how to redesign your world into another plane so that it can continue existing.]
"Ancient secret method? Are you sure that it is in the Ancient Land?"
Li Yunmu knitted his brows. He didn't want to believe the system for even a single moment. It had played with him for so long that he didn't know whether to believe it or not.
The system was silent for a while, then it calmly stated, [If you aren't willing to believe me, then you don't need to go. In any case, when the time for the sixty-six planes to merge comes, the continued existence of your world will become questionable!]
The system's words caused Li Yunmu to start panicking. Even if it was a trap, it was better to believe in it even if it was not credible. After all, the system had rarely lied to him.
Although it also had its aims, Li Yunmu knew that his and the system's goals were identical; otherwise, the system wouldn't have chosen him as the host.
"Are you sure that it is in the Ancient Lands and not in the southern or western or northern region?"
[I have already probed and haven't found the tracks of the ancient secret method, so I suspect that it is in the Ancient Lands. I haven't gone there and don't know much about that region, so I cannot talk more about it.]
Li Yunmu resolved himself to it. If he was unable to stop the Earth's crisis, then his coming to the Origin World was meaningless.
"Alright, I will now leave for the Ancient Lands."
In any case, the crisis in the Origin World had already been settled. The Eight had returned to Lanlou in the south, and Heavenly Gods Council and Scandinavian God Council had formed an alliance, so in the near future, the Origin World would remain peaceful.
As for the conflict among the Egyptian gods, even if Li Yunmu wanted to do something about it, he couldn't. He had a heavy responsibility of stopping his world from being swallowed.
When he was about to leave the next day, Brunhilda and his newly wed wife Athena were somewhat confused about his sudden decision.
If it were not for the system's explanation, the two women would have thought that Li Yunmu was being a heartless rat and abandoning them.
When Brunhilda heard that the Ancient Lands were full of danger, she couldn't help but become somewhat nervous.
"That's out of the question, I want to go together with you. The Ancient Lands of eastern domain are extremely dangerous. Many beasts roam in that territory, and even my father warned us to not go there. Li Yunmu, if you really want to go, then you must take me along."
Athena also agreed with her. "You should really take elder sister's advice. I also heard my father say that the eastern domain is a mysterious region where the western gods should never step a foot. I don't know the precise strength of the eastern gods, but I heard that they are very formidable. Their main god alone could hold back against four western main gods."
Li Yunmu suddenly felt somewhat happy. Who could have thought that in the eyes of the westerners, the easterners were more formidable.
The Origin World was a reflection of Earth!
"You can't come with me. I would have to care for your safety, which would be a major distraction. After I return, I will get in touch with you first."Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click for visiting.
Brunhilda didn't care about it and wasn't willing to let Li Yunmu go. But the system decided to speak up again.
[Girl, don't stop him. He has his own mission, just like you have the responsibility to protect Scandinavia. The Ancient Lands are indeed extremely dangerous, but I guarantee you that I will make sure he returns alive, alright?]
Brunhilda went silent, while on the other side, Athena also didn't say anything. Both of them were quiet for a time. If they really allowed Li Yunmu to go, who knew what sort of mishap might occur?
"Just wait for me to return. I will definitely come back alive. You must believe me!"
Brunhilda still didn't say anything, but tears began to fall from her eyes when he disappeared into the distance. As he watched his silhouette from behind, she realized that at some point in time, her feelings for Li Yunmu had grown incredibly deep.
The news of Li Yunmu planning to leave Scandinavia reached Odin's ears, and he soon heard part of the reason behind Li Yunmu's departure from the system.
He felt great pity in his heart that Li Yunmu had to leave, but everyone had their own mission in the world. As Asgard's king, he was naturally aware of Li Yunmu's particular mission.
That was why when he arrived at the bifrost bridge, he didn't stop Li Yunmu. Instead, he asked Heimdall to assist Li Yunmu in leaving the Land of Ice and deliver him to the crossing to the eastern domain.
When Li Yunmu reached the crossing, he heard a voice gasping for breath, "Li Yunmu, wait!"
When he heard his name, he couldn't help but slightly knit his brows. The head of Underworld Serpent had appeared before him, which made him suspicious.
The Underworld Serpent had always circled back and forth between several forces. From that, anyone could tell that they were extremely experienced in dealing with people.
But Li Yunmu had never expected that their leader was surprisingly a woman.
She was sinister and vicious, which could explain all her actions. Moreover, she was also extremely skilled in mixing with different powers, which would also explain her two-faced nature.
But even at that moment, he couldn't understand the Underworld Serpent's aim. Therefore, he was extremely cold while dealing with their people.
"Do you want something from me? I don't have the time to reason with you nor to settle the debt."
