“Heavenly Venerate, Luo Yunyang requests an audience.” A young boy greeted Yuan Venerate White Crane respectfully.
Yuan Venerate White Crane glanced at Yuan Venerate Violet Sky, who was playing chess with him before saying casually, “I’ve got things to deal with, so I won’t see him. Just make him cultivate well.”
Yuan Venerate White Crane waved his hands gently towards his subordinate to ask him to stop speaking again.
Yuan Venerate White Crane was the head of the Seven Sacred Emissaries of Hong Meng Sacred Hall. He was modest, kind, and gentle and he even liked to help his juniors. Usually, Yuan Venerate White Crane would see any visitors.
Hence, his refusal to see Luo Yunyang already explained his intent. The youth who had come to report this nodded his head and left quickly.
Yuan Venerate Violet Sky put down his chess pieces and asked curiously, “What did he choose to make you feel so distressed?”
“I would have been impressed If the things he had chosen made me feel pain. What a pity, though!” Yuan Venerate White Crane gently waved his hand and said, “He chose a stone box that even I can’t open and the dead body of a Nine-Tailed Golden Python.”
“That really isn’t that impressive!” Yuan Venerate Violet Sky sneered, “Isn’t this akin to entering the treasure vault and returning empty-handed?”
Yuan Venerate White Crane mulled this over for a moment before gently gesturing with a clap of his hands to make a virtual screen appear instantly in the hall.
On the virtual screen were 32 names in total, but the top four names were particularly dazzling.
Xuantian Zhaoxing, Luo Yunyang, Li Jiuyue, Yin Yang Zongzi!
These four names flashed with golden characters that dazzled with luminance.
“Transfer Luo Yunyang’s name to the second grade!” Yuan Venerate White Crane hesitated for a moment before issuing this command.
Yuan Venerate Violet Sky understood the meaning behind the second grade. Although the 32 Zongzis still had to depend on themselves for gaining the majority of the benefits, Hong Meng Sacred Hall also performed an evaluation of the development of the 32 Zongzis.
The basis for the evaluation wasn’t how strong a Zongzi was. Instead, it was an assessment of the Zongzi’s future potential.
As the leader of the Seven Sacred Emissaries in Hong Meng Sacred Hall, it was Yuan Venerate White Crane’s role to evaluate the Zongzis.
After Luo Yunyang’s name was transferred, there were only three names left on the brightly-lit screen. Yuan Venerate White Crane picked up a chess piece and said faintly, “Transfer Wu Xuanhuang’s name to the first grade!”
Wu Xuanhuang, a name in the third grade, was promoted instantly. However, at the promotion of the position of the name, the three characters representing his name suddenly began to get illuminated brightly.
“There’s great potential after the Black Yellow Sacred Body evolves into the Immemorial Black Yellow Sacred Body,” Yuan Venerate White Crane told Yuan Venerate Violet Sky.
Yuan Venerate Violet Sky nodded in agreement. He was aware of the potential of the Immemorial Black Yellow Sacred Body. According to the past records of Hong Meng Sacred Hall, anyone that possessed an Immemorial Xuanhuang Sacred Body would have a 70% chance of becoming a Yuan Venerate.
Luo Yunyang, who did not know about the adjustment that had taken place, quickly returned to his residence after learning that Yuan Venerate White Crane did not want to see him.
He needed some time to make adjustments after obtaining the Obliteration Gate, not to mention the Nine-Tailed Golden Python with the left eye that belonged to a Chaotic Four-Origin Beast.
Luo Yunyang’s consciousness was connected to the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast that had become his clone, so he was able to sense the huge power contained within this eye.
He did not dare do anything while he was in Yuan Venerate White Crane’s treasure vault, but the instinctive reactions that stirred inside the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast within his body made him curious and hopeful.
He felt a curious, hopeful desire to find out what was going on.
After returning to his cave residence, Luo Yunyang hurriedly sealed up the space around him before using his consciousness to enter his internal universe.
At the same time, he moved his Chaotic Four-Origin Beast to the place where the Nine-Tailed Golden Python was stored.
The Chaotic Four-Origin Beast let out a loud roar when it saw the Nine-Tailed Golden Python. Luo Yunyang even felt that the entire Chaotic Four-Origin Beast was boiling with emotions.
This response was similar to seeing a blood relative. It was an instinct that did not shift from the human will.
Layers of black light broke out of the left eye socket of the Nine-Tailed Golden Python as the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast growled.
Every place the black light hit was turned into ashes. Even the body of the third-level Heavenly Venerate Nine-Tailed Golden Python suffered a similar fate.
A black bead the size of a bowl rose slowly in the void. Although Luo Yunyang did not sense any consciousness in the bead, he could feel the mighty power hidden within it.
Dong, dong, dong!
The heart of the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast pounded as the bead followed suit and the planets in Luo Yunyang’s internal universe shattered into fragments, accompanying the pulse of each heartbeat.
While controlling his own Chaotic Four-Origin Beast, Luo Yunyang attentively looked at the black bead.
The bead belonged to an ancient Chaotic Four-Origin Beast that had died eons ago. However, judging from the hidden power in the bead, Luo Yunyang felt that it was much stronger than his Chaotic Four-Origin Beast clone.
Luo Yunyang was no longer a novice who had just started cultivating. He had many ways to deal with that strange bead now.
However, in the end, all those methods were rejected one by one by Luo Yunyang, as the best way to refine the bead was to use his Chaotic Four-Origin Beast to react to it.
Along with the beating heartbeat, the black bead flew to the top of the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s head and specks of golden-red light began to emerge outside the black bead.
The golden light spots were sparse at the beginning. However, after a few minutes, they became dense. In the end, those golden-red spots even wrapped around the whole bead!
When the bead had pulsed with the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s heartbeat for an hour, the golden-red liquid that covered the bead began to drip down slowly.
The bead returned to its original color, yet it had shrunk in size.
However, Luo Yunyang paid no attention to the bead. Instead, his attention was completely attracted by the drop of golden-red liquid.
Luo Yunyang had a theory when he saw the liquid gathered. This must have been the blood of a Chaotic Four-Origin Beast in the past.
The blood essence that used to hide in the black eye of the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast was extracted from the eye after it reacted to Luo Yunyang’s Chaotic Four-Origin Beast Clone.
Luo Yunyang felt that there was infinite energy hidden in the blood when he saw it. After he paid closer attention to the drop of blood, he realized that it was actually a golden-red universe.
A golden-red universe with countless stars!
Actually, Luo Yunyang had a feeling that the power contained in the golden-red universe was not any weaker than the One-Yuan Universe he had painstakingly built.
Without any resistance, Luo Yunyang allowed the drop of blood to fuse into the body of his Chaotic Four-Origin Beast clone. Luo Yunyang’s Chaotic Four-Origin Beast clone’s cultivation was at the Universe Grade. However, when the drop of golden-red blood seeped in its body, a golden-red universe immediately surged towards the internal universe of Luo Yunyang’s Chaotic Four-Origin Beast clone.
The universe in the body of the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast was expanding like crazy. In an instant, the universe had already expanded more than twice.
The Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s internal universe was improving at a speed visible to the naked eye, as the energy provided by the golden-red blood was identical to the energy found in the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s body.
Hence, the energy did not cause any discomfort to Luo Yunyang’s Chaotic Four-Origin Beast. Instead, it introduced some fragments of experience about becoming a Heavenly Venerate that assisted Luo Yunyang’s Chaotic Four-Origin Beast in maturing constantly.
Half an hour later, the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s cultivation had reached the peak Universe Grade. Although Luo Yunyang was satisfied with the improvement, it still wasn’t the time to relax and celebrate. The golden-red blood was bringing forth a large amount of energy, and Luo Yunyang wanted to use this opportunity and let it break through and become a Heavenly Venerate.
The stronger the Constitution of a beast was, the more difficult it would be for the beast to break through and become a Heavenly Venerate, as its spiritual mark would be very powerful because of its strong body.
It would be increasingly hard to extract a much stronger spiritual mark from the endless river of time and space.
Luo Yunyang had always considered making his Chaotic Four-Origin Beast clone become a Heavenly Venerate a headache, because he was afraid that it would be very difficult to completely extract the spiritual mark of the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast out of the long river of time and space.
However, Luo Yunyang’s confidence increased as the golden-red power continuously poured into the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s clone.
10 days passed very quickly. The huge Chaotic Four-Origin Beast let out a loud roar in the endless starry sky when the power of the golden-red blood was almost consumed.
The roar sounded like a thunderclap that shook the sky and earth.
Amid that deafening roar, a rolling sea of blood billowed on the left side of the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s head before a figure walked out of that seemingly endless sea of blood and greeted the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s clone. “Congratulations!”
The blood-red figure stood in the void, giving off the feeling that he had transcended time.
A Heavenly Venerate!
The Primeval Underworld Monarch, one of the four clones of the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast, had become a Heavenly Venerate. The moment the blood shadow appeared, the huge Five-Element World Tree also began to bloom above the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast.
On the branches and tendrils of the Five-Element World Tree were five small gourds arranged according to the five different elements. In addition to that, two more small gourds were also flickering with the power of time and space respectively.
This meant that the Five-Element World Tree had also become a Heavenly Venerate.
The fact that the two clones had become Heavenly Venerates also implied that the original body that supported them, which was the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast, had also become a Heavenly Venerate!
