Chapter 2017 – Continued Refinement
Chapter 2017: Continued Refinement
“I never thought you had obtained such a powerful god artifact. Even though it’s damaged, the spatial storms and chaotic streams of energy can’t do anything to it at all. It looks like it must be of extremely great quality,” master Chanlong could not help but sigh in amazement. He constantly studied the space within the Anatta Tower, never understanding why he found this place slightly familiar.
“Fantastic. With this god artifact, we won’t face any threats when we move through the crack in space at all,” Kai Ya was excited. Then, she seemed to think of something, and she furrowed her brows slightly. She looked at Jian Chen and asked, “Jian Chen, how should we leave this spatial crack? Why don’t you try to control the god artifact to attack so that you can create an opening to the outside.”
Jian Chen became rather stern when he heard that. He said, “I’ve only refined a tiny portion of this god artifact, so I only have the most basic control over it. Let alone making it attack, I can’t even move it while we’re inside.”
Jian Chen paused before continuing, “Right now, we’re in a spatial storm. The spatial storm poses no harm to the god artifact, but to us, it’s certain death if we end up in it. As a result, we definitely can’t leave the god artifact right now.”
“Doesn’t that mean we’ll be stuck in here for a very long time, all the way until the spatial storm is over?” Kai Ya asked with a frown.
“Not necessarily.” Jian Chen shook his head. He said, “I’ve only refined the first floor of this god artifact so far, so I can’t control its movements. However, I believe that if I deepen my refinement of the god artifact, my control over it will become greater and greater.”
“Let’s not tarry. I’ll go refine the god artifact right now. Remember, the god artifact is in a spatial storm right now, so you can’t leave.”
In the end, Jian Chen warned them sternly before directly making his way to the ninth floor.
The center of control over the Anatta Tower was a huge stone tablet on the ninth floor. Right now, Jian Chen had only refined the portion at the very bottom of it.
Jian Chen stood on the ninth floor as he stared at the huge stone tablet that stood hundreds of meters tall in the distance.
Originally, there was a projection of the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng where the stone tablet stood before. He saw an extremely pretty statue that could have been the Anatta Grand Prime within the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng, who wanted to give him a legacy.
However, after learning from the sword spirits, the voice of the Anatta Grand Prime was universal. It contained all the sounds of the world, and it would change as you wished. It was male if you believed it to be so, or female if you believed it to be so.
As a matter of fact, if you believed it was a beast’s cry, it would be a true beast’s cry when heard.
However, when Jian Chen heard the voice, it was truly female, unlike what the sword spirits had said. At the same time, he saw a gaze that was extremely similar to the artifact spirit of the Anatta Tower from the illusionary figure of the ‘Anatta Grand Prime’. As such, Jian Chen doubted the owner of the voice. He believed that the legacy was probably just a scheme the artifact spirit set up.
However, although the identity of the owner was suspicious, Jian Chen mostly believed what the Anatta Grand Prime had gone through during the battle in the past.
Jian Chen could not help but think about the black bead that contained the Laws of Destruction back then now that he recalled all this.
However, upon understanding that it was a scheme, he stowed the black bead away and never used it, just in case something would happen.
Even though he was countless times more powerful than he was in the past, he still did not plan to touch the bead.
“The teleportation formation in the projection of the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng took Ming Dong away back then. I wonder how he is right now,” Jian Chen stared at where the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng stood before. Although he knew Ming Dong was in the Saints’ World right now and that it was extremely likely for him to be in the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng of the Saints’ World, he still did not possess the strength to travel this great distance.
The Anatta Grand Prime was one of the seven Grand Exalts of the Saints’ World. He was well-renowned.
As a result, after spending so much time here, Jian Chen learnt that the Anatta Grand Prime dwelled on the Sheng Plane, which was known as one of the seven sacred planes of the Saints’ World.
The Sheng Plane was just too distant from the Cloud Plane. It was even more distant than the Ice Pole Plane. If he took a spatial battleship from the Cloud Plane to the Sheng Plane, he would need to travel for several thousand years without even stopping at all. It could even take several tens of thousand years.
“Once I have enough five-colored divine crystals to pay for the fee of using the teleportation formation, I’ll go visit the Sheng Plane. Also, there’s my sister Changyang Mingyue. In the blink of an eye, we’ve already been separated for almost two hundred years. I wonder how she is right now.”
“She’s protected by Shui Yunlan though, so there’s no need for her to fear any regular people. However, sister is on the same plane as fairy Hao Yue’s Moon God Hall.”
Jian Chen thought to himself. He only possessed a blurry understanding of Shui Yunlan’s strength back on the Tian Yuan Continent, but now, he completely understood just how terrifying she was.
She ranked ninth on the Godkings’ Throne. Such an existence was enough to rival Primordial realm experts! It was extremely astonishing even in the Saints’ World.
After calming himself down, Jian Che dismissed his thoughts and sat down before the stone tablet to continue his refinement.
The northern region of the Cloud Plane, within the imperial palace of the Xi Empire.
“The sword should not just be a weapon in your eyes. Instead, it’s your second life. If you want to comprehend the Laws of the Sword, you must fuse your soul with the sword, to the point where you become one so that you can comprehend the essence of the sword.”
An armored middle-aged man with a sword in his hand stood in the courtyard outside a residence as he said eloquently.
Before the middle-aged man was a beautiful woman, who seemed to be in her twenties. She also held a sword as she paid close attention to the middle-aged man’s guidance.
At this moment, a beautiful lady in a white dress slowly made her way into the courtyard. Behind her were two pretty female servants.
The arrival of the girl in white immediately caused the middle-aged man to become polite. He bowed with respect and said, “Greetings, your highness!”
“Sister Xi Yu, you’re here!”
The woman who learnt the sword immediately beamed with joy. She planted the sword in the ground and ran over.
Care and love appeared in Xi Yu’s eyes. She asked gently, “Mo Yan, how has learning the sword been going? Have I disturbed you?”
“No, not at all. It has already been a few months since I’ve seen sister Xi Yu. I started to miss you a long time ago,” Mo Yan clung onto Xi Yu’s arm closely as she giggled.
The lady who learnt the sword was Mo Yan. The Radiant Godking of the Xi Empire had saved her long ago.
Although Mo Yan was not a part of the Xi Empire, her status was extremely special in the empire due to her relationship with Xi Yu. She received the personal care of the Xi Emperor and the empress.
The couple would call to see Mo Yan often so that they could learn of Xi Yu’s past from her.
As a result, Mo Yan became the closest person to the Xi Emperor and the empress aside from princess Tai’an in the entire Xi Empire. It made many princesses and princes in the empire green with envy.
This was because many princesses and princes had not even seen the Xi Emperor or the empress before. Even if they had seen them before, it was only when the couple was out and from a very far distance. They were nowhere close to striking up a conversation.
