Yun Xin’s mouth hung agape as she saw Yun Daolai hurry off into the distance. She wanted to say something before stopping herself. Afterwards, she carefully glanced at the Space Ring in her hand before clutching it tightly as if she was afraid that someone unrelated to this matter would discover it.
Yun Daolai was covered in wounds and blood. He was extremely injured, yet he still wanted to protect the Space Ring under such conditions. It was obvious just how important the Space Ring was.
Jian Chen and Kai Ya naturally sensed Yun Daolai’s inconspicuous action, which caused their faces to change slightly.
Yun Daolai believed that his actions were extremely well-hidden, but it was a pity that he was simply too flustered, probably due to the fact that he was fleeing for his life. He naturally attracted the attention of some people in the surroundings from how hurried he was, so not only did Jian Chen and Kai Ya sense his actions, but a few Godkings who were attempting everything they could to take the heavenly resources in the Divine Heavenly Garden had sensed it as well.
This was because Yun Daolai was only an early Godking. There were many people much more powerful than Yun Daolai in the Divine Medicinal Garden, so he was naturally unable to hide it from them.
Immediately, quite a few people shifted their gazes from the heavenly resources and looked towards Yun Xin. Many of them bore avaricious gazes.
Clearly, they had realised the value of the Space Ring.
At this moment, master Chanlong had stopped breaking through the formation. He gathered with Jian Chen and the others, and their faces were extremely grim.
The three of them had realised that they were in great trouble now.
Yun Daolai was already busy enough with his own matters, so he clearly did not realise just how much trouble he had caused for Yun Xin. He was currently fleeing from the Divine Medicinal Garden as quickly as he could.
“I can’t let them know that I’ve already handed the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways to Yun Xin, that girl, nor can I let them know that the root is not with me anymore. Otherwise, they’ll look for it, and by then, not only will the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways be lost, but even Yun Xin’s life will be lost. As a result, I have to draw them far away as quickly as I can so that I can give Yun Xin some time to leave.” Madness filled Yun Daolai’s eyes. The Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways was the hope of their Yun family to rise up. Even if he had to offer up his life, he had to keep the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways safe.
“Yun Xin, you can’t disappoint me. You have to take the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways out with you,” Yun Daolai pleaded inside. He could only place his hopes on Yun Xin at that moment.
Yun Daolai did not think too much about whether Jian Chen and so on around Yun Xin were reliable or not.
However, at this moment, a huge strand of sword Qi shone brightly, directly shooting over from beyond the winding path.
Yun Daolai’s face suddenly changed, and he came to a halt. Facing the sword Qi, his heart sank immediately, and he cleaved out suddenly with a blade.
Yun Daolai’s blade collided with the sword Qi. The sword Qi dispersed, while Yun Daolai’s strike ran out of power as well.
However, when the sword Qi dispersed, it exposed the Laws of Destruction instead.
The Laws of Destruction were hidden within the sword Qi. The moment the sword Qi collapsed, the Laws of Destruction shot out like an arrow, punching through Yun Daolai’s body with lightning speed.
Spurt! Yun Daolai vomited blood as his body was blasted backwards. He was knocked back into the Divine Medicinal Garden, and his pale face became even whiter.
“Uncle Lai!” Yun Xin cried out. She wanted to charge over regardless of the danger, but Jian Chen forcefully stopped her.
In the Divine Medicinal Garden, a few people who were gradually approaching Yun Xin stopped from the sudden change in the situation. They all looked towards the only entrance to the Divine Medicinal Garden.
Jian Chen also gazed over there grimly.
An extremely handsome young man in white, loose clothes who seemed to be in his twenties entered the Divine Medicinal Garden at a steady pace with a sword in his hand.
Behind the young man was an old man in azure robes.
The old man’s presence was concealed completely, so he seemed like a simple old man.
“He’s actually only an Overgod.”
“An Overgod managed to injure an early Godking with a single strike. Even though the early Godking is already wounded, this battle prowess is shocking enough.”
“The Laws of the Sword and the Laws of Destruction. This Overgod has actually comprehended two of the most offensive laws. He truly is terrifying.”
“He must be well renowned on the Overgods’ Plaque, and he must be ranked quite high.”
Discussions began in the Divine Medicinal Garden. Many people communicated secretly with each other as they sighed in surprise.
The sword-wielding young man was expressionless and cold. He strode towards Yun Daolai. He did not move quickly, walking just like an ordinary person. However, he gave off a supreme presence.
In particular, the young man’s cold gaze looked at Yun Daolai like a great lord looking at an ant. It was cold and condescending.
It would not have been very strange if a Godking was doing that, but the young man just happened to be an Overgod.
Clearly, Yun Daolai feared this young man very much. As the young man approached him, he retreated as well while his face was ashen.
“No one can take what I want. Hand the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways over. You can’t keep it,” the young man said coldly.
“What? A Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways?”
“I never thought that someone would have actually obtained a Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways. That’s a treasure that even Primordial realm experts will fight to the death for.”
Cries immediately rang out in the surroundings.
“A Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways. It’s actually a Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways.” Xiao Zheng was also stunned. He murmured, “It’s said that the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways contains the ways of the world. Not only can Infinite Primes raise their cultivation by one to three Heavenly Layers in an extremely short amount of time with it, but it even increases their chances at becoming Chaotic Primes as well. It’s rumored in the Saints’ World that all the people who have ingested Spiritual Roots of Heavenly Ways have basically become Chaotic Primes. The remaining people who failed died along the way.”
Xiao Zheng was the divine king of a tiny divine kingdom on the Heniu Plane. He was not powerful, nowhere close to the Primordial realm, but he did know quite a lot.
Jian Chen was surprised by that as well. A Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways could basically create a Chaotic Prime. Its value would be terrifying.
Yun Xin was stunned as well. She thought, “Did the Space Ring that uncle Lai just give me contain a Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways?” Even though that was what she thought, Yun Xin did not dare to peer into it.
“Mo Cheng, you have no need for the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways with your talent. Why must you fight with us?” Yun Daolai roared out with much unwillingness. For the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways, they had paid a great price. Six of their sixteen Godkings had passed away.
This was because the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways was directly connected to their Yun family’s future. They were willing to sacrifice their lives for it.
Yet now, the appearance of the young man made Yun Daolai feel despair.
He knew that the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways that their sixteen Godkings had paid a great price for could no longer be taken out.
When Yun Daolai called out the young man’s name, it immediately caused a great commotion in the Divine Medicinal Garden.
“What? Mo Cheng? He’s Mo Cheng? The supreme Overgod ranked first on the Overgods’ Plaque?”
“The supreme Overgod ranked first on the Overgods’ Plaque, Mo Cheng, has actually entered the Neptunean Divine Palace this time as well. That’s news enough to shake up the entire place.”
“Mo Cheng is the undebated greatest Overgod in the entire Saints’ World. It’s said that the legacy Mo Cheng received is extremely impressive, where his cultivation method is one of the greatest even with the entire Saints’ World in perspective.”
“Are there still any other Overgods who can put up a fight against Mo Cheng in the current Saints’ World?”
“Mo Cheng is so powerful that he can easily kill early Godkings. There’s probably no one who can match up to Mo Cheng since he has such great battle prowess. No one can overwhelm him as long as more powerful Godkings don’t appear.”
All the Godkings stared at Mo Cheng in the Divine Medicinal Garden. There was surprise, envy as well as fear. As for the few Overgods present, they all looked at Mo Cheng with deep reverence and admiration.
Mo Cheng was the shining star among Overgods, enough to illuminate the entire world. His name had already spread across the forty-nine great planes and the eighty-one great planets long ago.
That was because he was the most powerful Overgod in the entire world. His name stood high up on the Overgods’ Plaques on all the planes and planets. It was dazzling and eye-catching.
