Chapter 3058: Ancestor Lan Appears
This was all because the number of organisations involved was far too great. Just the organizations from the Hundred Saint City amounted to over forty.
The other dozen or so organisations did not come from the Hundred Saint City, but they had also completely lost their foundations in the Darkstar World because of Jian Chen.
With so many organisations gathered together, demanding the Heavenly Crane clan hand over Jian Chen in such an aggressive manner, all of the high-ranking members of the Heavenly Crane clan experienced great mental pressure.
However, while they felt pressured, many of the great elders felt perplexed as well.
Who was Jian Chen? Did their Heavenly Crane clan even have someone like that?
At this moment, near the Heavenly Crane clan, a few fish swam about happily within a lake that never froze all year round.
These fish varied in species, but the fact that they could survive in such a harsh environment proved that they were anything but normal.
Among these fish, there was one that stuck out like a sore thumb. It raised its head and gazed in the direction of the Heavenly Crane clan in a manner that was a little more human.
At the same time, Mo Tianyun stood before a pool of water with his hands behind his back in the forbidden grounds of the Cloudsurge Empire on the Delight Plane. He stared into the depths of the pool.
More accurately, he was not staring at the pool, but the schools of fish that swam around freely in the water. A strange light gradually filled his eyes.
At this moment, the charming Rain Abbess in her violet dress walked over. She extended her finger gently, and a woman in white appeared silently, hoisted up in the air by a gentle force.
“The sliver of power from the Flame Reverend’s Laws of Fire is far too profound, and it’s in her soul. As such, it’s extremely difficult to deal with. I’ve done everything that I can, but this is all I can do,” said the Rain Abbess. It was clear that she was slightly exhausted.
Mo Tianyun looked at the woman in white and sighed gently. “Anytime we can buy is better than no time. Hopefully we can find a way to resolve this for good.”
“If you want to resolve it for good, it’s not exactly difficult. If you can get an expert whose comprehension of the Laws of Fire exceeds the Flame Reverend’s to help you out, then her problem will be resolved with ease. That’s the most practical way I can think of,” said the Rain Abbess.
Mo Tianyun fell silent. He did not give her a reply. With his cultivation and insight, how had he not thought of that? However, actually going forward with a plan like that would be nowhere near as simple as it seemed.
Mo Tianyun placed the woman in white within a jade casket and stared at the pool before him. He said, “I can vaguely sense some power of souls from these fish. An exceptional expert has clearly divided their soul into countless fragments and imbued them in these fish. Rain Abbess, I truly find it more and more difficult to read you.”
“So, by deciding against making an enemy out of me, you’ve made a very clever choice. Otherwise, there will be a day in the future when I can overwhelm you,” the Rain Abbess said emotionlessly; she was as blunt as ever.
Mo Tianyun smiled. He brushed it off. “You are constantly growing, but I’m not stagnating either. Unless you become a sovereign of the world, you can forget about overwhelming me.”
The Rain Abbess gazed at Mo Tianyun deeply and changed the topic. “Jian Chen is in trouble on the Ice Pole Plane. He’s just far too good at stirring up problems, actually offending so many peak organisations in the World of the Fallen Beast. Now, these organisations have banded together, which is a force to be reckoned with. Unless the Heavenly Crane clan demonstrates the courage to go down with them, they’ll struggle to keep Jian Chen safe.”
Mo Tianyun’s expression did not change. He only let out a gentle sigh. “We can’t let anything happen to Jian Chen. If we want to forcefully open the Xuanhuang Microcosm, he serves as the true key. We’re only the support. Rain Abbess, looks like you’ll have to pay a visit in person for this.”
“Hmph, why don’t you go yourself? Compared to me, your strength is much more suitable.” The Rain Abbess snorted coldly.
Mo Tianyun smiled faintly and said, “I cannot fight frequently due to certain reasons. Rain Abbess, only you can deal with Jian Chen’s problems this time.”
Reaching there, Mo Tianyun paused for a moment before turning his head and looking at the Rain Abbess. He said with a slight smile, “Even if you don’t go, what do you think the Martial Soul lineage will do as soon as they hear of this news? Given their past history, they don’t care about how many people they offend. They’ll definitely do all that they can to save a successor of their lineage.”
“If that really happens, the Martial Soul lineage will be making many powerful enemies. There’ll be almost no room left for them in the Saints’ World. They might even meet another tragic end.”
“After all, throughout the lengthy river of history, complete devastation to the Martial Soul lineage has happened more than just once.”
“Empyrean Demon Lord, don’t you dare!” As if her bottom line had been crossed, the Rain Abbess erupted with her presence. She immediately began staring daggers at him, radiating with killing intent.
Mo Tianyun maintained a gentle smile the entire time. “Even if I don’t tell the Martial Soul lineage about Jian Chen’s predicament, do you really think they won’t learn about this through their avenues of information given what they’re capable of? Given the stubbornness of their lineage, do you think you can stop them?”
The Rain Abbess snorted coldly and said nothing more, immediately vanishing from there.
“Heaven Crane clan, if you still don’t hand over Jian Chen, would you believe it if we flatten your clan today?” Outside the Heavenly Crane clan, the entire crowd was infuriated. A great elder from a peak clan ran out of patience and immediately voiced a threat.
“Hmph, flatten my Heavenly Crane clan? I’d like to see if your Heaven’s sect has that courage or not!”
However, as soon as he finished speaking, a pleasant but completely icy voice suddenly rang out.
With the voice, the surrounding temperature plummeted. The snow and wind froze over, while the ground became sealed in ice. The vegetation that grew within the snow all turned into ice sculptures. Some of the Chaotic Prime great elders even began to shiver uncontrollably.
Ancestor Lan appeared silently above the Heavenly Crane clan. She was wrapped in heavy snow, leaving her figure blurred.
Two other figures appeared behind her at the same time, both giving off the powerful presence of Grand Primes.
The two of them were the two other ancestors of the Heavenly Crane clan, ancestor Shi and ancestor Tian!
“You’re just a Chaotic Prime, yet you boast so much, threatening our Heavenly Crane clan?” Ancestor Lan said coldly. With that, she extended a finger.
Immediately, the laws in the surroundings flowed around, and a layer of frost spread over the great elder from the Heaven’s sect that had spoken recklessly.
Seeing this, He Qianchi could not help but smile in a gloating manner. He thought to himself, Zhan Yun, you were so overbearing in the Spirits’ World back then, completely looking down on our Heavenly Crane clan. Now that you’ve run into ancestor Lan, you’ve finally gotten the lesson you deserve.
