Chapter 1212: The Heavens

Diqiong felt that she would be infuriated to death if she were to spend more time with Su Ping.

She moved quickly and soon rose to the crown of a tree; there was a gargantuan hole on the tree, big enough to accommodate a city.

She landed on a branch in front of the hole, then glared at Su Ping. “Just stay here. I’ll report the matter to the Chief Elder, but I’m not sure if he’s in the mood to see you.”

“Thank you very much!” Su Ping quickly thanked her.

Diqiong snorted and flew into the hole. She quickly returned and gave Su Ping a gloomy look. “The Chief Elder won’t meet you. Just go back.”

“Why not?” Dazed, Su Ping asked in a hurry.

She snorted and said, “You have no manners. The Chief Elder doesn’t meet with anyone as rude as you.”

“Well…” Su Ping felt wronged. Exactly at this moment—an ancient voice resounded. “Diqiong, enough fooling around. Let him in.”

Diqiong turned around and stuck out her tongue. “I’m just teaching him a lesson.”



Su Ping was lost for words. His heavy heart became light again. There really wouldn’t

be anything he could do if the elder didn’t want to meet him. He couldn’t mess around in that place; any Celestial crow could incinerate him again and again.

“Why are you looking at me? Go inside!” Diqiong shouted.

Su Ping shook his head and refrained from teasing her again. He took the Little Skeleton and the others into the hole.

Two enormous Golden Crows were resting on the branch outside the hole; Su Ping could only see half their bodies. However, the auras of both crows made him feel that none of his laws and worlds would work on them; he was like a grain of dust next to a wall.

He’s definitely beyond the Celestial State.

Su Ping estimated. His pores contracted beyond his control as he became wary. He controlled his muscles, simply flying into the hole while s.h.i.+vering.

The tree hole was extremely vast; above him was a green opening through which he could see the sky.

The most gigantic Golden Crow was inside the tree hole; its head alone covered hundreds of square miles. He was like a puny ant in front of such a creature.

Su Ping stopped and said respectfully, “Chief Elder.”

The Chief Elder of the Golden Crows stared at Su Ping without opening his beak. However, an ancient voice was directly transmitted to Su Ping’s head. “I knew you would return. I didn’t expect you to change so significantly and so quickly. You’ve also gathered the sequences of several top mythical creatures. Besides…

“You’ve established seven small worlds with the most ancient cultivation technique. Those who achieved that were at the very top tier, even among mythical creatures.”

Su Ping was surprised by the information. “So you’re saying that all the ancient mythical creatures knew this technique?”

“Of course. It used to be the most traditional cultivation method; however, it was lost after the war…” The Chief Elder sounded quite grieved.

Su Ping felt intrigued. So to speak, the Heaven Path Inst.i.tute in the Archean Divinity probably had obtained legacies of mythical creatures; it was probably one of its deepest secrets.

“Chief Elder, if I may ask, how many small worlds can be cultivated at the same time?” asked Su Ping.

His mentor in the Heaven Path Inst.i.tute had once told him that even Ancestral G.o.ds had cultivated no more than seven worlds. He had actually achieved such a number, so he wondered if that was the true limit.

“You’re asking for the upper limit?” The Chief Elder looked at Su Ping. “If I remember correctly, the upper limit should be nine. However, it’s extremely difficult to establish nine worlds. Also, the people who established nine worlds weren’t equally strong. In any case, whoever attained nine worlds in history went beyond the Heavens.”

The Heavens?

Once again, Su Ping heard the mention of Heavens. He was two worlds away from reaching the nine-world mark; there was still a long way ahead of him.

There are many Ancestral G.o.ds in the Archean Divinity; every high-ranked clan is supported by an Ancestral G.o.d. Establis.h.i.+ng seven small worlds is no big deal; if I can establish nine…

Su Ping’s eyes glittered. He looked at the Chief Elder and asked, “Chief Elder, by the ‘Heavens’, do you mean real lives, or just a concept?”

The latter looked down at Su Ping, as if surprised by the question. But then he remembered something and smiled. “The Heavens are members of the Heaven Clan! They’re the species that have existed ever since the birth of the universe. n.o.body knows where they came from, but they claim to have created all other lives.

“However… F*ck them.”

The Chief Elder suddenly cursed at the end. Su Ping was able to precisely translate what he said in their telepathic communication. This left him in shock.

The Chief Elder was rather straightforward. At first he thought that the guy would answer him in riddles; after all, most bigshots Su Ping had met liked to talk mysteriously. Even if the guy would have chosen not to confess a thing, there wouldn’t have been anything Su Ping could do, except complain in his heart.

“Most people don’t dare to talk about the Heavens, because they sense when anyone talks about them. However, there’s no need to fear when you’re with me.” Seeing Su Ping’s expression, the Chief Elder chuckled. “The Heavens aren’t invincible. According to legend, there was an unparalleled genius who slew the Heavens. He was respected as an ancestor!

“Humans knew him as Heaven Master!”

“The ancestor?”

Su Ping was intrigued. Was that ancestor as strong as the Ancestral G.o.ds in the realm of G.o.ds?

If so, wouldn’t the Heavens be as strong as G.o.d Emperors?

“Why did he slay the Heavens?” asked Su Ping curiously.

The ma.s.sive crow glanced at Su Ping and said, “If the Heavens want to kill you, wouldn’t you wish to kill them? The Heavens consider themselves superior to all other creatures. Even we are just minions to them. They think they can kill us whenever they wis.h.!.+

“We’ve been hiding here exactly because of the Heavens!”

The Chief Elder revealed the shocking secret. “However, we will go to the World of High Heavens again with the other clans when our ancestor awakens, to kill the Heavens!”

Su Ping felt dazed, not expecting that Golden Crows were hiding because of the Heavens! Even powerful mythical creatures feared them. …The World of High Heavens?

Su Ping suddenly remembered the Remains of High Heavens, the cultivation site he had accidentally discovered.

It was very similar to the World of High Heavens the Chief Elder mentioned.

The Chief Elder seemed to be surprised by Su Ping’s question. The crow stared at Su Ping for a moment, then said, “You’ll understand when you meet the Heaven Master of humanity.”

Su Ping stopped asking, noticing the evasive reply.

“You may go out. We will prepare the treasures needed for your bloodline improvement. We’ll let you know when we’re ready,” said the Chief Elder.

Su Ping quickly thanked him again, bowing deeply. He then left the tree hole.

The Chief Elder was deep in though as he watched him leave. Just like before, I cannot see his future nor his past. What kind of being can possibly block my senses like our ancestor? But our ancestor is half awake already; he would surely react if another ancestor invades, or if the Heaven Master of humanity was taking action…”

The Chief Elder was quite solemn.

The real reason why he was willing to invest in Su Ping—in addition to the two reasons mentioned—was that he sensed the presence of a powerful being backing Su Ping. However, he was unable to ascertain the being’s real level. It seemed to have escaped the attention of his ancestor. What kind of being could that be?

Once he left the tree hole, Su Ping saw Diqiong on a branch and immediately flew towards her.

“I thought you would be killed by the Chief Elder,” said Diqiong straight away.

Su Ping said, “I thought so too.”

Diqiong snorted. “What did the Chief Elder say? Did he tell you to get the h.e.l.l out of here, or is he letting you stay?”

“Technically speaking, he asked me to get the h.e.l.l out and stay.”

“Okay then. Just come to my place; you can live there for now, so that you won’t offend anyone else. Others aren’t as nice as me; they will surely eat you.” She then snorted and moved away.

Su Ping summoned the Little Skeleton and his other pets, then followed.

They had been with him when he met the Chief Elder, but their behavior wasn’t entirely satisfactory. They were all trembling; none of them recovered until they came out.

“You weren’t this scared when we met the G.o.d Emperor in the Archean Divinity. The Chief Elder even suppressed his aura. Why were you so scared?” Su Ping kicked the Dark Dragon Hound in the b.u.t.t and jumped onto its back as he ordered all his pets to follow Diqiong.

The Dark Dragon Hound looked back at Su Ping pitifully, then caught up to Diqiong.

Is it possible that the Chief Elder is even stronger than a G.o.d Emperor? Does he compare to the Ancestral G.o.ds in the Archean Divinity? If so, what level is his ancestor at? The idea occurred to Su Ping, leaving him wary and speechless. If that was the case, he was still too far from becoming a real expert.

However, Su Ping felt that the Chief Elder was probably just a G.o.d Emperor, and only was stronger than those in the Archean Divinity because he was a mythical creature.

The chaotic mythical bloodline… Su Ping’s eyes glittered. He suddenly remembered his Solar Bulwark; he could transform into a Golden Crow. Going by logic, he should be carrying the chaotic mythical bloodline already.

Thinking about that, Su Ping simply asked Diqiong.

“You’re right. You’re indeed half a Golden Crow, but only half. You didn’t go through the rite of pa.s.sage in the Ancestral Land, so you don’t really have a mythical bloodline. Besides, you have to transform when you use your awakened const.i.tution. Your a.s.sorted bloodlines may get in the way. In my opinion, you should ask the Chief Elder to allow you to complete the rite of pa.s.sage in the Ancestral Land,” said Diqiong casually.

“I would become a real Golden Crow if I complete the rite of pa.s.sage? Then the other bloodlines…”

“They’ll be swallowed, of course. Our bloodline is ultimately powerful; it won’t tolerate the other bloodlines!” declared Diqiong proudly.
