Shadow Hack Chapter 706
Fuxi and Nuwa glanced at each other, then Fuxi began to speak. "The ancient secret method is the supreme treasure of our Ancient Lands! If you want to assist your clansmen, you will have to agree to our condition!"
Condition? Li Yunmu was slightly shocked. What would he do if Fuxi and Nuwa raised some impossible condition?
When they saw Li Yunmu hesitating, Fuxi and Nuwa smiled at each other, and Fuxi spoke once again. "Our Ancient Lands have always believed in the true god. I beg the true god to awaken the master god of the eastern domain. This is our condition!"
Li Yunmu was slightly startled. The system had gone dormant at that moment, so he probably wouldn't be able to fulfill Fuxi's condition. But could the system really awaken their master god?
Who knew how a master god could be awakened?
Just when Li Yunmu was at his wits' ends and didn't know how to reply to Fuxi, the system's profound voice echoed in the hall.
[True god hasn't returned, and so master god cannot be awakened!]
Li Yunmu knew that it was the system's response and thus quickly adapted a solemn expression before speaking to Fuxi and Nuwa. "It spoke just now inside my body. The true god hasn't returned so the master god cannot be awakened for now."
Fuxi narrowed his eyes. "Then request the true god to return!"Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
System once again spoke inside Li Yunmu's body. [They want the true god to return? How can that be easy? Other than removing the five seals of the Origin World, the only other way is for you to make my level reach eighteen.]
Li Yunmu curled his lips. "Haven't I already raised your level to fifteen? You also haven't informed me how to harvest more information for you."
[Just tell them, that it can only be done by removing the five seals,] the system said indifferently.
Li Yunmu again adopted the system's tone and said in deadpan earnest, "It said that only when you eliminate the five seals of the Origin World will the true god return."
Fuxi and Nuwa's complexion changed instantly. The five seals were the secret of the Origin World which a mortal like him shouldn't know. It seemed like the true god was indeed residing in his body.
Under Li Yunmu's gaze, Fuxi and Nuwa suddenly became much more respectful and prostrated in front of him. "Well met, true god, requesting you to accept the greetings of Fuxi and Nuwa!"
Li Yunmu looked at the two gods with a dumbfounded expression, stunned by what the two gods were doing.
"What are you doing?" he asked the next moment.
Fuxi and Nuwa stood up and said, "Mortal, the being residing in your body is the true god of the Origin World. It created the living beings, but he has been lying dormant, sealed by the world. If the true god can return, then the glorious days of the past will also return with him."
Although Li Yunmu didn't understand the meaning behind Fuxi and Nuwa's words, he could feel that the ancient gods of the eastern domain seemed to be on their side.
That would save him from needless trouble.
"This is the ancient secret method. I can lend it to you. Perhaps it is also the intention of the true god, but we also have a request, that you destroy the seal of our Ancient Lands!" Fuxi said calmly.
Li Yunmu was startled again. Don't say that the seals which system spoke about were...
"Your thoughts are correct. Every region possesses a seal, and it is based upon the five phases of metal, wood, earth, water and fire. The desert in the central ocean represents the metal, the Lanlou region of south represents wood, the Northern Land of Ice represents water, the Ancient Lands of eastern domain represents fire, and the western region's vast sea represents earth."
[The five attributes subdue each other, resulting in the present situation of the Origin World. The numerous gods of the five regions are also related to each other based on this relationship.
[The two poles of morning and evening restrain the Heavenly Eight, the Heavenly Eight restrain Olympus, the Olympus restrains Asgard, Asgard restrains Primordial God World, and Primordial God World restrains the poles of morning and evening. They exist to keep each other in check, thus forming a balance in the Origin World.]
Upon hearing the system's words, Li Yunmu suddenly felt that everything in the Origin World had become somewhat more complicated.
But the restraining relationship made sense. It explained why the Asgardians had always been afraid of the gods of Olympus.
After the underlying principle of the five seals became clear, Li Yunmu asked, "How can the five seals be broken? Now that Fuxi and Nuwa have raised this condition, we have to satisfy them, or they will not give us the ancient secret method and I won't be able to save my world."
[The elimination of the seals require the combined power of numerous gods. Moreover, they are guarded by ancient divine and demonic beasts. Their strength is comparable to that of a master god, so destroying those seals by relying on our current power is impossible.]
The system's words instantly shattered Li Yunmu's hopes. They would be unable to eliminate the seals, and so he would also be unable to obtain the ancient secret method.
He sighed and said, "Seems like obtaining the ancient secret method is impossible."
[Don't be so heartbroken. You should tell them the actual situation; they aren't unreasonable. Even if they don't help us, we can try to find the location of the ancient secret methods and then steal it for ourselves.]
Li Yunmu cupped his hands and sighed. "I am very sorry, Emperor Fuxi. He said that the seals are guarded by ancient divine beasts and demonic beasts, and we aren't their opponents. Therefore…"
After Nuwa heard it, she also sighed. "The true god has his own thoughts, but if the seals aren't broken, he won't be able to return and awakening the master god will be nothing more than a pipedream.
"Nevermind it, mortal, you go and cultivate properly! If someday in the future you can release the seal, we will give the ancient secret method to you."
Li Yunmu was quite shocked; the two gods were surprisingly so heartless! Shouldn't Nuwa be very kindhearted? Could it be that she was willing to see many mortals perish? Li Yunmu even began to doubt whether the two gods were real or fake.
He thus beseeched them again. "I request the two gods to assist my clansmen. They already don't have many days left. If I cannot obtain the ancient secret method, I won't be able to return and rescue them. I beg you, two gods, please help me."
The system gave him a reminder then. [Ask about the whereabouts of the ancient secret method. We will steal it.]
Li Yunmu didn't want to use such despicable means. He was quite honest and straightforward.
"The ancient secret method is very important to me. If you two aren't willing to give it to me, then I will use other methods to obtain it."
Fuxi and Nuwa were astonished for a while. He had other ways to obtain it?
