Chapter 269: We Are Remnants From the Old Era
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
After a moment of thought, Qin Jue finally thought of two people who could inherit this middle-aged man’s inheritance.
They were Yun Xi and Long Xiaoyu.
Since it was an inheritance, it could definitely be passed on to two people at the same time, right?
Although it would be difficult for Long Xiaoyu to awaken the remnant soul of the middle-aged ancient true god, it shouldn’t be a problem for her to awaken the remnant soul of another ancient true god.
However, the remnant souls of the other ancient true gods had all dissipated under Qin Jue’s punch.
These remnant souls could still slowly recover over time as they had already fused with the Divine Realm. However, it was difficult for them to condense again in a short period of time. In other words, Qin Jue had basically cut off Long Xiaoyu’s path to becoming a True God Stage expert.
Therefore, this could be considered as compensation for Long Xiaoyu.
As for Yun Xi, she was Qin Jue’s disciple to begin with. How could he forget her at a time like this?
“You’re saying that you’re the king of the gods?” Qin Jue said with interest.
Even though he was grabbed by Qin Jue, the middle-aged man was still full of arrogance. “Let go of me quickly, or don’t blame me for being impolite!”
“Hehe, you’re really stubborn.”
Qin Jue couldn’t be bothered to waste his breath. His spirit sense directly pierced into the middle-aged man’s illusory body. To a remnant soul, a spirit sense attack was undoubtedly the most painful.
Even if the other party was an ancient True God Stage expert when he was alive, it was still no exception.
As expected, the middle-aged man immediately gasped and screamed in pain. “Stop! What are you doing?!”
After a long while, Qin Jue retracted his spirit sense. The middle-aged man immediately collapsed. He was in so much pain that he almost opened his third eye.
“You actually used a soul searching technique on me…”
The middle-aged man’s expression was sinister, as if he wanted nothing more than to eat Qin Jue.
He never expected that he would have to endure such humiliation after being awakened after so much difficulty. If he had known earlier… he wouldn’t have come out!
Qin Jue had indeed used a soul searching technique on the middle-aged man. It could be considered an impromptu idea, as he wanted to understand what the ancient era looked like.
Unfortunately, because the middle-aged man was a remnant soul, many of his memories were already blurred.
Fortunately, Qin Jue captured a few key pieces of information.
First, the middle-aged man’s name was Feng Xun, and he was an expert beyond the True God Stage.
Secondly, the middle-aged man was from the Heavenly Palace!
In ancient times, the Heavenly Palace ruled this void. It was extremely powerful and glorious, and no one dared to disobey it.
The middle-aged man was the master of the Heaven Palace, the former Heavenly Emperor!
No wonder the middle-aged man called himself the King of Gods. It turned out that the dozens of remnant souls just now were all his subordinates.
Of course, this was not the main point. The main point was that the Heavenly Palace had already been destroyed!
The Divine Realm Continent in front of him was the remains of the Heavenly Palace.
As for why it was destroyed, those memories were extremely blurred. Even the middle-aged man, the master of the Heaven Palace, could not remember them clearly.
In addition, Qin Jue noticed that the symbols carved on the Divine Seal Altar were very similar to the symbols he had seen in the Southern Land cave. In other words, that place was indeed related to the Heavenly Palace.
Thinking of this, Qin Jue fell into deep thought. Since the Heavenly Palace had been destroyed, could that place and the birdman have been left behind from before?
Strictly speaking, this was indeed a possibility.
“Forget it, let’s not care about this for now.”
Shaking his head, Qin Jue smiled and said, “You’re the Heavenly Emperor, right? Do you want your soul to be searched again?”
The Heavenly Emperor shuddered and hurriedly shook his head.
He was the dignified Heavenly Emperor and used to be invincible in the world. When had he ever been so miserable?
Uh… no, he seemed to be dead…
In fact, if he hadn’t died, the Heavenly Emperor probably wouldn’t have been afraid.
After all, it was precisely because he had lost a large portion of his memories and had fallen into a deep sleep for a long time that his state of mind had undergone a tremendous change.
Under normal circumstances, experts at this realm wouldn’t be so idiotic.
“Very good. Then leave your inheritance behind.” Qin Jue said indifferently.
“You want my inheritance?”
The Heavenly Emperor was stunned. With the strength Qin Jue had displayed, he shouldn’t need it at all, right?
“Not me. Her.”
Qin Jue pointed at Yun Xi, who had fallen asleep in his arms at some point.
The Heavenly Emperor blinked and hesitated. “Is this… the manifestation of a spirit herb? No, her aptitude is too poor… Ah!”
Before he could finish his sentence, the Heavenly Emperor screamed in pain again. “Alright, alright, alright, I agree!”
At this moment, the Heavenly Emperor wanted to cry but had no tears to shed. He finally understood what it meant to live a life worse than death.
“If you want my inheritance, you have to let go of me first.”
In fact, with Yun Xi’s talent, she might be considered top-notch in the Spirit Central World. However, in the eyes of a super expert like the Heavenly Emperor, she was indeed far inferior. However, Qin Jue didn’t care about this.
“Don’t be in such a hurry, there’s another person you need to pass the inheritance to.”
As he spoke, Qin Jue’s fingers moved slightly. Long Xiaoyu, who was working on the second test far away, immediately passed through layers of space and arrived at the Divine Seal Altar.
If she could directly obtain the Heavenly Emperor’s inheritance, why would she need to pass those messy tests?
Long Xiaoyu was dumbfounded.
Long Xiaoyu couldn’t figure out where she was for a moment.
Qin Jue pointed at Long Xiaoyu.
“Pass my inheritance to the two of them at the same time?”
The Heavenly Emperor was full of question marks, thinking that he had misheard.
No matter what, he was still the dignified Heavenly Emperor, a once supreme existence. How could he casually hand his inheritance to two people?
“What? Is it not possible?”
Qin Jue smiled faintly.
The Heavenly Emperor could only nod in agreement.
“Eh? White Dragon Race?”
Sensing Long Xiaoyu’s true body, the Heavenly Emperor could not help but say, “What a pure bloodline. You are qualified to obtain my inheritance.
Long Xiaoyu was still dumbfounded, not understanding what was going on.
“Wait. Before that, I have something to ask you.”
Suddenly, Qin Jue changed the topic.
“What is it?”
The Heavenly Emperor was slightly worried, thinking that Qin Jue was unwilling to let him go.
“With your cultivation, why did you still choose to deliberately set up such a place? If you want to possess someone and be reborn, it should be very easy, right?”
This was what Qin Jue was most puzzled about. Logically speaking, whether it was the Heavenly Emperor or the remnant souls of those ancient True God Stage experts, it should be very easy for them to possess someone and revive.
In particular, those who could pass the nine tests and ascend to the Divine Seal Altar were all peerless geniuses. There was no need to worry about talent.
But none of them ever tried to possess those geniuses.
“Hahaha, we’re remnants of an old era. There’s no longer a ship that can carry us in the new era. Since we’re dead, why don’t we leave the future to the young?”
At this point, the Heavenly Emperor seemed to recall something and sighed. “This is why we established this place before we died!”
Whether it was the three top factions or the other vassal forces, the reason why they could continue to grow stronger was because of the Divine Realm. These remnant souls of ancient True God Stage experts had already used their actions to prove their determination.
Qin Jue released the Heavenly Emperor and said respectfully, “Sorry, I’ve been rude.”
Then Qin Jue spread out his five fingers, erupting with a terrifying golden light that instantly enveloped the entire Divine Realm.
