Chapter 1031: Secret News
The Heavenly Phoenix Fire burned fiercely.
Lil’ Red felt it for a moment but also felt that it was extremely oppressive. It was as if the ball of flames was of a higher level than the ones in its body.
Not far away from the purple light, a black light formed a world of its own. It was just like what was said in the proverbs—a world in a wild flower, and a bodhi in a leaf. The light swirled, dark and deep. A majestic suction force swept out, capable of swallowing all things. This was a Devouring attribute that had been condensed to the extreme, and it could suck and devour everything.
The moment Lil’ Red saw it, its minds seemed to be occupied by countless mysterious great paths.
Yin and Yang, the evolution of all things, the cycle of life and death—all sorts of things converged into one. They were indescribable and could not be put into words.
This kind of inexpressible scene would cause the hearts of those who saw it to go blank.
After all, not being to see through something meant that it was unknown, and the unknown meant danger. Moreover, this kind of danger was also unmeasurable even for the mighty Phoenixes.
Ou Yangming was no longer the young fellow Lil’ Red had met before. After going through all kinds of trials and tribulations, he had finally grown into a towering tree. At the very least, he had the minimum power to be able to come into contact with the core secrets.
Lil’ Red took a deep breath and guarded its spiritual altar. It let go of its mind and carefully used its mental power to probe. It was being meticulous as it carefully sensed everything. The little red bird had also grown at a rapid speed and was no longer that naughty and arrogant phoenix it used to be. At this moment, it could also bear heavy responsibilities and carry the world.
After a moment, its eyes suddenly lit up, and it remarked in a low voice, “It is indeed the Dragons’ power, and it has reached an unimaginable level.”
Its thoughts spread out and turned into countless fine threads.
1,000 for the path, 1,000 for the heart, and 1,000 for thoughts—a total of 3,000. It corresponded to 3,000 great paths, and they all had the same goal.
Using the fine threads as a brush, Lil’ Red described the Dragons’ power from every aspect and recorded everything down.
After an unknown time, Lil’ Red slowly opened its eyes and withdrew its majestic pressure.
It muttered softly, “The powers of the Dragons and the Phoenixes are strong, but there’s a faint feeling that they’re mixed with each other. What exactly is going on?”
Ou Yangming had become a Venerable One and had passed through 9 Heavenly Thunderbolts, so he could hear even the slightest sounds. He naturally understood why. Back then, when mental power was fed back to him, the Heavenly Phoenix Fire and the Devouring Power used his dantian as a battlefield. He had suffered a lot, but he did not say much.
All of a sudden, Lil’ Red cried out.
It chirped for a while and asked in fear, “Hey… You… You came into contact with the Upper Tribulations?”
For some reason, when Ou Yangming heard this, the Upper Tribulations’ Coffin appeared in his mind. That mournful, desolate, and unyielding voice rumbled in his spiritual world.
Ou Yangming did not hesitate. He nodded slightly and asked in return, “I have indeed seen the Upper Tribulations’ Coffin. What’s wrong?”
Lil’ Red questioned, “Do you know the origin of the Upper Tribulations?”
Hearing this, Ou Yangming’s eyes lit up. He responded softly, “They’re probably related to the foreign races.”
Lil’ Red nodded slightly and said, “Yes, but also no.”. The Upper Tribulations did not submit to the universe. They did not respect ghosts and gods. They used the power of their race to condense the Upper Tribulations’ Coffin. If the coffin was not destroyed, the Upper Tribulations would not be destroyed. Several 10,000 years ago, they produced a peerless genius. He suppressed the entire Spiritual Realm and made it dim. He was closely related to Tao Tie, which was the greatest dragon powerhouse, and Feng Ling, which was the greatest phoenix powerhouse. Later, for some unknown reason, when he reappeared, he possessed the Bloodline Powers of the Dragons, the Phoenixes, and the Upper Tribulations. For the great disaster in the Big Ruins, all sorts of foreign races were created because of a drop of blood that Xu Aoran dripped into the ground.”
As its voice reverberated, even with Ou Yangming’s temperament, he was shocked beyond words.
A drop of blood turned the Big Ruins into such a state. Just how strong was Xu Aoran? Was that the power of reaching the heavens?
Lil’ Red did not say anything else. Only after Ou Yangming digested the news, it raised its claws, revealing its sharp claws, and continued, “Besides, it’s said that the reason the 3 peerless powerhouses fell out with each other was that they were fighting over some sort of treasure.”
“What kind of treasure?” Ou Yangming asked.
Lil’ Red rolled its eyes at him as if it was mocking him. It responded, “I said that it was some sort of treasure. How would I know?”
Ou Yangming was speechless. He did not want to be outdone and slapped the top of its head!
Lil’ Red kept on chattering as if it was refuting. Ou Yangming did not think too much about it and slapped it again.
Hidden in the dark, Multi-armed King Kong quickly looked away and said in fear, “I didn’t see anything… I didn’t see anything. I won’t look at anything that’s contrary to propriety. If there’s anything at all, go and find Master. It has nothing to do with me, nothing to do with me.”.
Goshawk also looked away and whistled.
It wondered, “Damn it! If I was killed by sir just because I saw this, how unworthy would it be? Hmm, what did I just see? Hey, why did I forget?’
At this moment, Ou Yangming glanced at where the 3 beasts were hiding and uttered in a low voice, “Come out!”
Multi-armed King Kong smiled and admitted without beating around the bush, “I didn’t see anything.”
Lil’ Red glared at it in a low voice, causing a chill to run down everyone’s spine and their minds to thump.
The goshawk and Big Yellow had a telepathic connection and looked elsewhere.
Ou Yangming spread his hands and stepped out to smooth things over. “Alright, don’t scare it. King Kong’s a Venerable One now. How embarrassing would that be?”
Lil’ Red casually glanced at King Kong, implying that since Ou Yangming had smoothed things over, it would let it off this time.
Following that, Lil’ Red jumped onto the goshawk’s wings and lightly exhaled. “This fellow’s so weak. A top-grade spirit beast?” Oh, may Heaven bless the goshawk. A top-grade Spiritualist was considered a peak combat power in the Spiritual Realm. While one could not compare to a Venerable One, it was still at the level of an aristocratic family’s patriarch, but the little red bird considered it to be weak.
The goshawk’s expression was bitter, but it did not even dare to move.
It knew that Lil’ Red was dangerous. If it was furious, it would shake the world. There was no one in the Phoenixes that could be easily provoked.
Ou Yangming smiled as he watched. He did not say anything. He believed that Lil’ Red had a sense of propriety and would not harm the goshawk.
As for Big Yellow and Multi-armed King Kong, they did not mind watching the show. They smacked their lips from time to time.
Ou Yangming let out a light breath and walked into the house. He took a comfortable hot bath, changed his clothes, and walked toward Old Craftsman’s small courtyard.
He thought that if he went to see any of the 3 women first, the other 2 might have other thoughts. In that case, he would go to see Old Craftsman first. This way, the problem would be solved. On the winding path where the fog in the mountains drifted, the young fellow as if he was walking in a fairyland. Thinking of the 3 women, he sighed and said, “It’s not so easy to enjoy the blessings of all people!”
Old Craftsman was practicing a fist technique in the courtyard.
The fist winds were cold and vigorous. Each punch carried a sonic explosion and was fast.
The fist technique was a bit more complicated and blotchy to Ou Yangming as it was not pure enough.
Nevertheless, it was also not easy for someone in the Extreme Grade. One could imagine that the old man had put in a lot of effort.
Ou Yangming waited until Old Craftsman had practiced it twice and stopped, then he slowly walked in. With a gentle face, he remarked, “Haha, you’re getting stronger as you age. I feel ashamed looking at you practicing this fist technique.”
Old Craftsman intentionally glared at him and was full of energy. He said, “B*stard, don’t think that I won’t dare to beat you just because you became a Venerable One.”
Ou Yangming smiled mischievously and walked to the old man’s side. He said, “Yes, of course, you can. Who said that you can’t? I’ll be the first to be angry.”
“I knew I didn’t dote on you for nothing!” Old Craftsman wiped the fine beads of sweat on his head and spat out a mouthful of white mist. He looked satisfied.
Ou Yangming chuckled and did not say anything. He just looked at Old Craftsman and made up his mind. Even if he had to use piles of spiritual herbs, he would help the old man become a Venerable One.
“Have you gone to see Ni Yinghong?” The old man asked in a low voice.
“Didn’t I come to see you as soon as I came back?” Ou Yangming laughed.
Old Craftsman’s eyes widened as he looked at the abandoned baby that had made him proud for his entire life. He said in a deep voice, “I’m old now, and I want to hold a grandson. There are no cheerful sounds in the courtyard. It just feels like somethings missing.”
Ou Yangming’s heart almost jumped to his throat. He felt that this was a million times more tiring than fighting against Ji Haoran.
He probed, “Isn’t it… Isn’t it too early? Besides, you have to live a long life.”
The old man laughed and kicked Ou Yangming, but he nimbly dodged.
He spread out his hands and said, “Look, I can’t even kick you. Am I not old? One can disrespect the heavens, but one can’t refuse to accept one’s old age. If I can have a grandson while I’m still alive, it’d be worth it! Look at those Venerable Ones. They’re all respectful to me. Of course, I know it’s because of you but now that I think about it, I’ve straightened my back, so I’m not afraid of others poking at my spine. I just want to pass on this little bit of ability.”
Old Craftsman rambled on and on.
Ou Yangming listened patiently. He was not impatient. Instead, he felt warm and gently nodded from time to time.
The worst thing in the world was when a son wanted to carry out his duty but no longer had anyone to be filial to.
After listening to the old man, Ou Yangming said, “Don’t worry, I’ll strive to let you carry a big fat grandson.”
Old Craftsman’s eyes lit up immediately. “It’s best to have Yinghong. I’m close to that girl, and I feel like we have a good affinity.”
Ou Yangming smiled and agreed to it. He sat next to Old Craftsman to chat with him.
This time, before he could say anything, he was chased out by the old man.
The thing was after Old Craftsman heard Ou Yangming agreeing to it, his face turned stiff, and he asked, “Didn’t you agree? Why aren’t you leaving?”
Ou Yangming smiled and looked at him, not saying a word.
“You brat, you’re still trying to be unreasonable with me. Hurry up and go.”
Ou Yangming looked up at the unrestrained white clouds in the sky.
Old Craftsman was angry and got up to chase him away.
While Ou Yangming was not welcomed at the moment, his heart was filled with warmth.
On the winding path, he turned around and looked at the small courtyard, and he said softly, “This is the beauty in my heart. No matter what, I won’t allow anyone to touch it. For all of you, I’m willing to kill Gods and Buddhas. No one can stop me! You’ve given me great strength, allowing me to have the courage to fight against this world. For all of you, I’m willing to block all the wind and rain, leaving this piece of land with only the bright and beautiful sun.” His voice was not loud, but it carried a sense of determination that made people feel at ease. It was firm and reassuring.
