Chapter 1697: As The Legends Said?
In the cave dwelling on Heavenly Sorcerer Mountain, in a stone room.
The white-haired elder sat down cross legged with his eyes closed. Bright light circled around him and instantly turned into a large, white-light halo that surrounded his body.
The white, holy halo circled continuously around him as weird inscriptions danced around it, full of life.
A mysterious aura escaped the elder’s body and filled the entire stone room.
Serious looks were worn on the Sorcerer Tribe experts as they silently watched the elder.
No one dared to disturb the elder as he was currently displaying the super power and connecting with heaven’s fate to discover where Su Mo was.
Once the elder had discovered Su Mo’s location, they would head over immediately and capture him.
After that, they would offer Su Mo’s blood as a sacrifice to the tribesmen who had died.
Everyone was confident in Saint Elder Jia Shen’s abilities. As an Empty God, the cultivation rank of Saint Elder Jia Shen was a mystery and it had reached an unimaginable stage.
Furthermore, Saint Elder Jia Shen was an expert in calculating fates and connecting with divinity.
There wasn’t anything that Saint Elder Jia Shen wouldn’t know.
The white halo rapidly spun around Saint Elder Jia Shen and it started to spin faster and faster. It was as though Yin and Yang were interacting with each other at an unimaginable rate.
Right at that moment, the eyebrows on Saint Elder Jia Shen’s face slowly started to crease together.
What was going on?
Everyone was filled with questions. Why was the Saint Elder frowning? Could he be having difficulties finding Su Mo?
That wasn’t possible.
Su Mo was just a Martial Honorable and not some Empty God. How could he avoid the Saint Elder’s probing?
The white halo spun faster and faster, to the point that eyes couldn’t keep up with it.
Everyone was shocked as they knew that the faster the halo spun, the more difficult the probing was.
In previous times, the white halo around Saint Elder Jia Shen’s head only needed to twitch lightly for him to discover what he wanted to know.
This made everyone surprised. How could a measly Su Mo cause Saint Elder Jia Shen such difficulty?
How could that be?
In the midst of everyone’s eyes, Saint Elder Jia Shen’s halo suddenly jerked and crumbled apart into 4 pieces that slowly dispersed through the room.
Everyone was taken aback and their eyes bulged out as they stared in disbelief at what happened.
That was because the situation meant that Saint Elder Jia Shen had failed!
The shut eyes of Saint Elder Jia Shen suddenly opened and a blinding light shot out of them that flashed through the entire room.
“How could this be…!” Saint Elder Jia Shen muttered to himself as shock passed through his eyes.
The crowd was even more shocked. What did Saint Elder Jia Shen’s reaction mean?
“Saint Elder Jia Shen, what is wrong?” Wu Fengtian spoke out first impatiently. He was too eager to find out where Su Mo was.
The elder did not reply Wu Fengtian as he remained silent and thought carefully.
“What is the identity of this man?”
A few moments later, Saint Elder Jia Shen spoke out as his face turned serious.
“We are not too sure of the exact identity of Su Mo but the Heavenly Underworld Star Side branch should be clearer on his identity!” One of the Martial Sage among the group answered.
“Contact the side branch and ask for Su Mo’s identity and his past!” Saint Elder Jia Shen demanded.
The crowd immediately replied as nervousness filled their faces. Then, the Martial Sage carefully asked, “Saint Elder Jia Shen, what happened? How come you failed?”
Everyone stared intently at Saint Elder Jia Shen as the same question popped into their minds. The situation was really puzzling.
“This man’s fate is mysterious and deep, and I cant discover it. It doesn’t seem to be within the realms of the Rules of Heaven!” Saint Elder Jia Shen replied. He had not taken the group’s request to heart previously since it was just finding the whereabouts of a Martial Sage.
Yet, he was starting to get concerned now as the situation didn’t seem simple!
“What?” Everyone jumped in shock. What did the Saint Elder mean by not within the Rules of Heaven?
The 2 Martial Sages started to frown as they barely understood what Saint Elder meant.
Although they were not sure why it was so, they could confirm that anything that did not obey the Rules of Heaven was exceptional and bizarre!
In the history of the universe, there were a few other exceptional people who had shocked the whole world with their powers.
However, virtually all of these exceptions died in the end.
“Saint Elder Jia Shen, how could that be? Why is this man different?”
A tall young man asked. This man wore a dark red long robe and had a cold but handsome face. The aura around this man was thick and, although he wasn’t a Martial Sage, he was close to becoming one.
“I am not sure, but this man is exceptional. Since he is our enemy, we must kill him at all costs!”
Saint Elder Jia Shen shook his head before his eyes fell on the tall young man and he laughed, “Wu Qiong , I cultivated in seclusion for 15 years and your cultivation rank has reached the Sage-to-be Realm. Not bad, not bad!”
“Saint Elder praised me too much. I am nothing compared to your cultivation rank!” The tall young man shook his head without revealing his joy at being praised by the elder.
“You don’t have to be humble. You are only 70 years old but you are a Sage-to-be. A little more and you can become a Martial Sage before you’re 100 years old!” Saint Elder Jia Shen chuckled.
“Becoming a Martial Sage by 100 years old is not a problem!” The tall young man nodded his head.
“Mm, I will look forward to your performance at the Sky Dragon Contest!” Saint Elder Jia Shen nodded his head.
“Rest assured Saint Elder, in the entire Ancientspirit Galaxy, there are only 2 people in the younger generation that can rival me!” Wu Qiong uttered in a deep voice. Although his voice was calm, there was an invincible confidence to it.
Saint Elder Jia Shen lightly nodded before he waved his hand dismissively and said, “All of you are dismissed. Find out about that prodigious Su Mo’s identity and kill him as fast as possible!”
The group agreed immediately. Since even Saint Elder Jia Shen could not find out where Su Mo was, they could only rely on the tribe’s connections to slowly seek him out.
This wasn’t difficult. As long as Su Mo was in Ancientspirit Galaxy, the tribe could find out where Su Mo was with their strength. Time was the only problem.
With that, the group swiftly left the stone room and left Saint Elder Jia Shen to himself.
Saint Elder Jia Shen gazed at the backs of the people and he deeply sighed as a thoughtful expression crossed his eyes.
“To not obey the Rules of Heaven, his fate is similar to that man’s. Could he really be as the legends said? I wonder what number soul he is?” Saint Elder Jia Shen mumbled to himself, his face completely stoic.
However, even after pondering over the matter for a long time, Saint Elder Jia Shen could not find the answers to his questions and he could only let out a long, helpless sigh.
