Chapter 2050: A Difficult Situation
The ten Godkings of the Yun family could not help but stare at mister Shu who held the fan as they all revealed shock as well as obvious envy.
They knew extremely well just how valuable god artifacts were in the Saints’ World. Taking their Yun family as an example, they possessed two great elders who were Infinite Primes, but only one of them possessed a god artifact. Moreover, it was a low quality god artifact.
The other great elder still used supreme quality saint artifacts!
“Mister Shu, according to my knowledge, only Primordial realm experts can use god artifacts. Below that, it’s impossible to unleash any of its power at all. Otherwise, you would suffer from a huge backlash. May I ask how mister Shu is able to use a god artifact so easily?” Yun Lianqing asked politely as his opinion of mister Shu changed.
The fifth prince glanced at the Godkings of the Yun family. On any other day, he would definitely ignore them with his status, but he was in a great mood when he thought about how he would soon obtain the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways. He took the initiative to explain, “That’s right. Under ordinary circumstances, it’s impossible for those below the Primordial realm to unleash any of the power of a god artifact. It’s basically no different from scrap metal because the artifact spirit of every single god artifact is extremely proud. It’s impossible to gain their recognition below the Primordial realm.”
“Moreover, even if you gain the recognition of the artifact spirit, the power needed to use a god artifact is still not something that regular Godkings can sustain. This is why only Infinite Primes can use god artifacts as they wish.”
“However, mister Shu’s Cataclysmic Onyxwind Fan doesn’t actually belong to him. Instead, it belongs to a subject of our Sky Empire, who is also mister Shu’s master. The artifact spirit of the Cataclysmic Onyxwind Fan has received orders from mister Shu’s master. Coupled with the portion of power stored in the fan by his master, mister Shu can unleash the fan’s might at a very small price.”
The Godkings from the Yun family were enlightened. They could sense that mister Shu’s master was definitely a great person with supreme cultivation. Seeing how willing he was to give his disciple his god artifact, he did not worry about his disciple being killed and his god artifact being taken away.
For example, although a great elder of their Yun family also possessed a low quality god artifact, he would never give it to them.
With the path ahead cleared completely, the fifth prince arrived before Jian Chen’s group. They stood outside the barrier of energy as they stared at Jian Chen inside.
“Are you Mo Cheng, who ranks first on the Overgods’ Plaque?” The fifth prince looked at Jian Chen as he furrowed his brows, asking him a question with uncertainty. He had heard from the people of the Yun family that Mo Cheng had hunted Yun Daolai down after he fled with the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways and that there was a supreme Godking from the Godkings’ Throne beside Mo Cheng. As a result, the fifth prince believed that the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways had ended up with Mo Cheng.
Now that he saw Jian Chen and the others being encircled by so many people in the garden, he naturally believed that the person before him was Mo Cheng.
The part that made him furrow his brows was that although he had never seen Mo Cheng, he had heard about the supreme Overgod who ranked first on the Overgods’ Plaque. The person before him seemed somewhat different from the rumors.
Moreover, he did not see the supreme Godking who accompanied Mo Cheng either.
The Godkings with the fifth prince studied Jian Chen’s group with a strange light. Only the Godkings of the Yun family showed extremely strange expressions, apart from Yun Daolai.
“Xin’er, Jian Chen, Kai Ya, Chanlong, h- how are you here?” Yun Lianqing cried out in surprise. Astonishment filled his face.
Apart from Yun Daolai, the other Godkings of the Yun family stared at the people in the energy barrier blankly as they showed doubt.
The fifth prince’s face sank slightly as he suddenly felt an ill omen. He looked at Yun Daolai and asked, “Where’s the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways?”
“Daolai, this is the fifth prince of the Sky Empire,” Yun Lianqing arrived before Yun Daolai and explained. He was afraid that Yun Daolai would offend the fifth prince when he did not know who the latter was.
“Fifth prince, the- the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways…” Yun Daolai seemed to be completely stupefied. He stammered as his face paled.
He was not stupid. When he heard that the person who came was the fifth prince of the Sky Emire, he knew what the other people of the Yun family had decided. It was exactly this that made him feel fear.
If he still possessed the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways, he would not be like this. He would not be like this either even if Mo Cheng had taken it away. However, the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways just happened to be eaten, and the person who ate it was Yun Xin.
“The Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways is gone,” said Jian Chen as he walked out of the barrier steadily. He studied the fifth prince and his people before locking onto mister Shu in the end. He was extremely stern, and he immediately told master Chanlong to keep up the formation secretly.
The fifth prince’s face changed drastically. He glared at Jian Chen and exclaimed coldly, “What did you say? The Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways is gone?” The Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways was a treasure that determined whether he would be able to become a Chaotic Prime in the future. He was willing to do anything to get his hands on it. Even if Mo Cheng had taken it away, he would go as far as to offend Mo Cheng to take it back.
“I- I- I already ate the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways,” Yun Xin walked out as well as she basically tried to choke back her sobs. She could clearly sense that the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways had already dissolved within her, turning into a power that constantly improved her talent.
The Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways possessed the truths of the universe, and it was created by taking the fortunes of the world. It was not violent like regular God Tier heavenly resources, where weaker people would explode if they consumed it. As a result, Yun Xin felt no discomfort after she ate it.
“Xin’er, w- w- what did you say?” The expressions of the Godkings of the Yun family changed drastically. If the circumstances were different, they would definitely have been overjoyed. They might even laugh aloud. However, they only shivered now. They felt fear and unease from the bottom of their hearts.
The fifth prince’s face sank. He stared right at Yun Xin as he could not help but tremble slightly. This was caused by extreme anger.
Jian Chen’s heart sank slightly from the fifth prince’s response. He glanced at Yun Xin beside him before trying to make it up to the fifth prince, “It is Yun Xin’s great pleasure to have consumed the Spiritual Root of Heavenly Ways. If she receives further nurturing, her future accomplishments will be immeasurable. Becoming a Chaotic Prime will not be wishful thinking for her. At that time, the Sky Empire’s strength will greatly increase on the Profound Thunder Plane such that surpassing the other eternal empires is only a matter of time. I am Jian Chen, and I’d like to congratulate the fifth prince beforehand. I’d like to congratulate your Sky Empire in becoming the greatest eternal empire on the Profound Thunder Plane.”
The fifth prince did not waver at all. His expression remained the same as he looked at Yun Xin with great unease. In reality, his fuse had already been completely blown inside, where he was tempted to immediately execute Yun Xin on the spot.
Yun Xin also paled as she felt unsettled.
