Ancient Godly Monarch Chapter 1893
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed. His grandfather was the first person who obtained the tiny astral-being. In that case, he might know of the secrets within.
“Grandfather, what sort of thing is the tiny astral-being exactly?” Qin Wentian asked. The tiny astral-being was mysterious and unfathomable but he had never been able to truly probe its secrets before.
“Let me talk to you about Heaven Vault first.” Qin Tiangang spoke. “Back then, I launched punitive expeditions for the Qin Clan and aided the Qin Clan, allowing them to climb to the peak of the Heaven Region. My cultivation base was already high enough, hence I wanted to probe the unknown secrets of the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. I went to many places and searched for information that had records of the secret realms in this world. Even for some secret realms that were concealed very well, I managed to find them. And there was one time when I received information that hinted heavily that the Heaven Vault had a very important connection with a legendary figure of the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. Hence, I decided to explore this place.”
“Who is the legendary figure?” Qin Wentian asked. Being able to attract his grandfather, this legendary figure was definitely an impressive fellow.
“During the period of time when the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms were divided into eight great regions, the first generation king of the Heaven Region, Godking Xi.” Qin Tiangang slowly spoke. “My investigations told me that the hometown of Godking Xi was none other than Boundless City that lies beside the Boundless Ocean.”
“Grandfather, do you suspect that Heaven Vault has a connection with Godking Xi?” Qin Wentian’s countenance changed. The king of the Heaven Region, Godking Xi. What sort of powerful existence was that?
At the time when the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms were split into the eight great regions, each of the eight regions were ruled by a godking. Now, where were all of them?
“I’ve been thinking about this. Those godkings who stood at the peak of the heavenly deity realm, where did they go? Most probably, they wanted to pursue an even higher cultivation realm. I discovered that the Heaven Vault might have a very high possibility that it had a connection with Godking Xi. Hence, I decided to explore the secrets here, heading deeper into its depths. In any case, many things happened after that. Oh, by the way, I suddenly thought of something. When you entered the Heaven Vault, did you pass by a place where there were ten heavenly pillars with statues on them?”
“Mhm.” Qin Wentian nodded.
“Before you reach the ancient heaven vault pathway, did you have to traverse a blood sea using boats made from bones?” Qin Tiangang asked again. Qin Wentian continued to nod.
“Blood as a sea, bones as a boat. There are all sorts of negative emotions in the blood sea. Have you ever thought about that? I was wondering if that blood sea could have been transformed from the blood of a supreme expert. The bone boats were made from his bones. As to those negative emotions of despair, it should caused by the stray thoughts of the supreme expert’s heart. They are not illusions, they are all real.” Qin Tiangang spoke, his words causing Qin Wentian’s heart to tremble as he stared at Qin Tiangang in shock.
“Grandfather, are you saying that Heaven Vault is an internal world inside the body of a supreme expert?” Qin Wentian felt somewhat flabbergasted. This thinking…wasn’t it slightly too audacious?
“Initially, I didn’t dare to think about it. But after that, when I came to the Gods Extinction Path, I realized that there are many terrifying types of destructive energy here. In addition, the time and space here would intersect often, causing people to be trapped here for all eternity. This resembled countless memories inside the mind of someone. Every memory existed in a different timespace and each timespace had their own daos here. After I obtained the tiny astral-being, it further confirmed the guesses I had in my heart. The tiny astral-being is like an item transformed from someone’s soul, it could control everything here. However, in order to obtain this, I was on my last breath of life. I depended on my will and forcibly broke apart the spacetime I was in to escape but I no longer had the strength to leave this place. I could only wait here in reluctance, until your father came in to find me.”
Qin Wentian felt his heart trembling fiercely when he heard his grandfather’s words. The tiny astral-being was an item transformed from a soul?
“If the nature of this thing really is a soul, given my current power, wouldn’t it be easy for me to find its secret?” Qin Wentian spoke.
“You are thinking too much. This man’s divine sense could encapsulate the entire nine heavenly layers. I believe that his cultivation base was already approaching the rumored Transcendence Realm, infinitesimally close to that realm where no one in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms had managed to step into before. His ambitions were extremely vast, wanting to occupy the nine heavenly layers for himself. The soul energy he transformed into isn’t merely so simple just to cover the constellations in the nine heavenly layers. He wanted to reach a higher point, becoming an existence that surpassed the nine heavenly layers and it seemed that he had almost succeeded. However, I suspect that he was just a single step away and still failed ultimately. This was why he allowed his body to transform into the Heaven Vault and wanted to wait for people of the later generations to accomplish the ambitions he had, but couldn’t achieve.”
Qin Tiangang slowly spoke, Qin Wentian’s heart continuously trembled. He thought about the countless astral fragments inside the tiny astral-being. It was an item that could also store memories. The tiny astral-being itself seemed to be a universe that could contain countless constellations. This was something very similar to his grandfather’s conjectures. Using divine sense to encapsulate the nine heavenly layers, Godking Xi most probably wasn’t willing to exist below the nine heavens and wished to become an existence surpassing them.
Such ambitions were truly great. How could someone else not feel their heart trembling after they heard it.
“Mhm.” Qin Tiangang nodded. “After I obtained the tiny astral-being, I tried to probe its origins. I believe that your father must have done so as well. Now, I don’t know if any changes occurred after it was transferred to you. But since fate arranged for it to be passed through the bodies of our three generations, I believe that Wentian, you will surely be able to uncover its final secrets.”
“Let’s hope so.” Qin Wentian nodded. “Is this Gods Extinction Path very dangerous?”
“There are many regions of unknown danger. I suspect Godking Xi left behind some of his power here to test the future generations. Staying here for a short period of time wouldn’t be dangerous, but what about ten years, a hundred years, a thousand years, ten thousand years? One would eventually be met with danger. This is also the main reason why the vast majority of experts died after they entered this place. Because, they couldn’t exit here and were trapped for an eternity. Eventually, they wandered into a danger zone and died there. However, now that I know you possess the core of everything here, I can be certain that you will definitely be able to exit. Back then, your father managed to leave here as well.” Qin Tiangang spoke.
Qin Wentian nodded his head. Things were like what his grandfather said. After they entered, they didn’t encounter much danger. Maybe, the places of danger here could be considered minimal but since the people here were trapped for countless years, they would run into danger sooner or later. Unless of course, they could exit this place.
“The tiny astral-being kept showing reactions since I entered. I have not tried to detailedly comprehend it yet.” Qin Wentian spoke.
“Grandfather believes that you will definitely be able to do this. Try and search for your father if he is still alive.” Qin Tiangang patted Qin Wentian on his shoulder. After that, the spacetime will here seemed to dissipate as Qin Tiangang’s body grew illusory. His tyrannical aura vanished completely as a smile of warmth appeared on his face, staring at his grandson while his body grew more and more illusory.
“Grandfather…” Qin Wentian felt pain in his heart when he saw this scene.
“Being able to meet you here, grandfather already feels very happy. Child, you have to walk the path in the future on your own.” Qin Tiangang smiled. His figure then transformed into nothingness, like he has never existed before. It was tough to imagine that not long ago, he was standing here solidly, fighting against all the heavenly deities from the Qin Clan.
Qin Wentian stood there in a daze. Behind him, a figure walked over. It was none other than Luoshen Chuan. When he saw Qin Tiangang’s vanishing figure earlier, his heart was filled with a thousand emotions.
He has heard everything earlier. Qin Wentian naturally didn’t have anything he needed to conceal from his maternal grandfather.
“Your paternal grandfather…What a pity. He was a hero that ruled supreme in his generation and could summon the wind and rain in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms.” Luoshen Chuan sighed.
“Grandfather, you should have heard everything earlier. I’m will keep trying to gain insights about the tiny astral-being and see if we can leave this place earlier.” Qin Wentian spoke. Luoshen Chuan nodded his head. After that, Qin Wentian sat cross-legged and his consciousness sank deep inside the tiny astral-being. After he entered the Gods Extinction Path, the tiny astral-being kept having reactions but because he had been fleeing, he didn’t have time to check it out. Now, he could finally see for himself the changes that occurred to it.
When Qin Wentian’s will entered, he discovered that a complicated world akin to a maze has appeared in the tiny astral-being. There were countless intersecting long corridors and tens of thousands of buildings. Wasn’t this the exact scene in Gods Extinction Path?
In the past, his grandfather must have sensed this. This was why he would have such an audacious conjecture. Sadly, his grandfather was already on the verge of death after he obtained the tiny astral-being. If not, he would definitely be able to exit this place.
“Grandfather, there shouldn’t be any problems for us to exit if I spend some time studying this. If I can control this fully, things wouldn’t be as simple as us just leaving this place.” A cold light flickered in Qin Wentian’s eyes when he spoke. Luoshen Chuan’s eyes flashed, he didn’t expect the truth to really be like this. In that case, for all those heavenly deities who came into the Gods Extinction Path to probe for its secrets, most probably only danger existed for them. Only for Qin Wentian would there be opportunities because he had the tiny astral-being.
Many years later, in the boundless dark void that was the Gods Extinction Path, Qin Zheng and his group were still trying to find an exit. Their expressions were all incredibly ugly to behold.
“What sort of hellish place is this?” A heavenly deity cursed in a low voice. There aren’t any secrets at all in here, there was only danger. Opportunities were non-existent. Also, not only did they fail to capture Qin Wentian, they themselves were almost killed by Qin Tiangang as well.
“What is that?” At this moment, their gazes turned ahead only to see an airflow of destructive might flowing in their direction. Qin Zheng’s expression changed as he turned and fled, “Run!”
After that, no one here hesitated, they immediately turned and fled away. As for the other heavenly deities who entered Gods Extinction Path, they had similar encounters before. They were safe the majority of the time, but they could only float around in the dark void, not even able to stop if they wanted to. There seemed to be no end to this place and they would even meet with danger occasionally.
Thinking about of the heaven-defying opportunities and secrets they thought would be here before they entered this path, all of them felt anger and regret. There was simply nothing here. What was even more terrifying was that in here, even their messaging crystals were useless. They had no way to contact the external world, it was like they were in a completely different dimension.
Today, at the end point of the ancient heaven vault path, above the nine heavenly layers and amidst the countless constellations below the path, there were still several powerful characters who were cultivating here. All they knew was that the heavenly deities who had entered the Gods Extinction Path all seemed to have vanished. Many people were worried, this was especially so for experts from the various peak powers. If those heavenly deities truly died in there, the strength of their peak powers would surely be affected and an earthquake-level commotion would happen in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms.
At this moment, from the entrance of the dark void, two figures walked out from there and stepped upon the endpoint of the ancient heaven vault pathway. They were clearly very tired and their clothes were ragged. However, they actually managed to leave the Gods Extinction Path?
“Finally, we are out.” Qin Wentian glanced at the ancient heaven vault path before his eyes. He felt as though he spent a few lifetimes inside the dark void. They had to travel for an extremely long period of time inside the dark void as the space within was simply far too vast. As for the other heavenly deities who entered with them, it was unknown where they had drifted to. Even if Qin Wentian wanted to find them, it would be almost an impossible task. He could only bring his grandfather along with him as he exited that place!
