Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 506
Chapter 506: – Perpetia City“It’s good that she’s never touched a man before,” Tianming said .
“How so?” Feiling asked .
“There’s no pressure when I touch you then . ”
Feiling was almost speechless . “Could your thoughts be any more dirty?”
“I can’t help it! She’s been lying there for ten thousand years, and you’re fused with her now… . ” Just thinking about it made Tianming think it was rather stimulating .
“Whatever . Anyway, there’s no more Xuanyuan Chi, only Jiang Feiling,” she said seriously .
“I was thinking, isn’t this kind of the same as having a beauty in both arms?”
Feiling could only find appreciation for the way his mind worked .
“Right, so how are you now with your new god physique? The Hall King said you didn’t have any power in you . ”
“Yes, the godly power of the god physique has run dry after so long . ” Feiling pouted, looking rather adorable .
“It looks like you can’t escape your destiny of being bullied by me . ” Tianming sniggered .
“Says who! I can cultivate now!” Feiling laughed .
“Really? But don’t you still lack a lifebound beast?”
“I don’t need one . Xuanyuan Chi didn’t either . She relied on Demon City to cultivate something called the Perpetia Sutra . It doesn’t need symbiotic cultivation, and it helps you become a god faster . It was what let her become the continent’s tenth god at age twenty . ”
“Wait, are you saying I’ll have a god in the family in twenty years?”
“Nope . It’s really so, so complex that I’m feeling dumb . I need to start from the Beast Vein stage, so who knows how long I’ll need to catch up to you . ”
“Who cares! Now you don’t need to fear growing old and dying . ” Tianming was happy .
“I can already live two thousand years with the god physique . ” Seeing Tianming react, Feiling asked, “Big Brother, what’re you thinking?”
“I need to become a god, so you don’t become a widow . ”
“Without you, I wouldn’t have this physique . Wherever you go, that’s where I go . ” Feiling’s eyes fixed on him and she spoke with full seriousness .
“Yes . ”
“Since you said something so touching, does that mean I can bring my Grand-Orient Sword when I go to bed next time?” Tianming asked .
“But I’m shy… . ”
“So Ling’er, you did know what that meant! And here you kept saying it was my sword hilt . ”
“Quiet!” Feiling blushed . Only an idiot wouldn’t know what that thing was .
Regardless, Xuanyuan Chi was a true god . She had a god soul, too! For Feiling to survive her encounter was already a huge stroke of luck . She had originally been meant to be a mortal soul that was fated to live for less than two decades .
It had only been through these two’s struggle that the current laughter was called for .
When they passed through the Bottomless Pit, Feiling whispered to Tianming, “When we were fusing, I heard a voice saying something even Xuanyuan Chi didn’t . ”
Tianming perked up his ears .
“The voice said that the Demon City wasn’t always the Demon City . It used to be known as Perpetia City . ”
When they returned to the Divine Capital, Tianming immediately noticed that the city was on fire . Many buildings had collapsed, and corpses littered the streets . The once bustling city had become a purgatory after a short four or five months .
As they neared, they started hearing the snarls of countless lifebound beasts, as well as intermittent screaming and crying .
“How could this have happened?” Bai Xiaozhu felt dazed .
“Nothing to be surprised about . It’s a conflict for the throne, and they’re always bloody affairs . In the past, the Autarch would make sure the succession went smoothly . But now that Autarch Qian’s gone, it’s regressed to such a state,” Bai Mo said indifferently .
“What’s the situation now?”
“Both sides are heavily injured . Autarch Yun has a slight advantage, but he just can’t take down Jiang Ling for good . Many have died . The nation’s power will probably take a hit after this . Those around the Theocracy will be itching to stick their noses in . ”
“Is the dao palace good?”
“Of course . Our disciples still continue cultivating . We just won’t interfere . Now, the dao palace is perfectly united . ” Bai Mo grinned .
“That’s good then . ” Tianming didn’t care about the Theocrats . The more of them that died, the better .
“Tianming, you dealt them a heavy blow by killing the crown prince . Autarch Yun will probably demand an accounting from the dao palace over this,” Bai Mo said .
“Should I hide?”
“No need . He no longer has the power to challenge us . We can ignore him as long as the Evil Suppression Formation is up . You just need to focus on cultivating . If he doesn’t know what’s good for him, we’ll just take care of him and help put Jiang Ling on the throne . ”
“Why not just help the dao palace ascend the throne?” Tianming frowned . Wasn’t this the best chance to exterminate the Theocrats?
“We’ll see how things go . Don’t worry, the Palace Lord and Dark Hall have their plans . ”
“Alright!” Tianming was aware of the two powers’ relationship .
The Theocracy had once belonged to the dao palace . Now, the Theocrats had declined and the crown prince had fallen, ending their line .
“Perhaps it might be time for the dynasty to change . ” Tianming smiled .
They passed through the Evil Suppression Formation, finally returning to the safest place in the world . No matter how dangerous it was outside, it remained lively inside .
“Big Bro Tianming!” Ye Lingfeng was still weak . His eyes opened and he looked emotionally at Tianming .
“What is it?”
Ye Lingfeng pointed at the black pillar . “That belonged to the Primordial Demonlord . ”
Tianming was surprised .
Did that mean the Prime Tower and Cyclic Mirror came from an even stronger god?
“At least four gods died inside Perpetia City,” Tianming mused .
“Can I take it away?”
“Not right now . I haven’t spoken to the seniors about the Primordial Demonlord and God-Emperor . That pillar is what’s guaranteeing the safety of the dao palace for now . ”
“Alright . ” Ye Lingfeng wasn’t anxious .
At this moment, a girl with white hair rushed out . “Big Brother, Ling’er, Little Feng!”
“My little sis got even prettier!” Tianming gave her a hug .
Qingyu began chatting with Feiling . “Why do I feel like you’re different somehow?”
“That hand you’re holding now belongs to a ten-thousand-year-old hag . ” Tianming sniggered .
“Nonsense!” Feiling glared at him .
As for Qingyu, she was simply confused .
“Hey, Big Sister Qingyu… . ” Ye Lingfeng lifted his head up weakly .
“Can I give you a hug too?”
“No, guys and girls can’t touch . ”
Ye Lingfeng was stunned and looked at Tianming .
“What is it?” Tianming asked .
“I, I didn’t know you were a woman!” Ye Lingfeng’s thought process was that Li Tianming and Li Qingyu had hugged, which made them the same gender . “Wait!” He tapped his head . He’d been with Tianming so much that he couldn’t not know if Tianming was a girl . Which meant… .
“Big Sister Qingyu, so you’re a guy! Wait, so why can’t I give you a hug?”
There was a beautiful city to the north of the capital, called Dazzling City . It was the headquarters of Dazzling Pavillion, and controlled all of the trade and commerce . Meng Tingyu, their Pavilion Lord, spent most of her time there .
She was currently playing the zither inside a building . Her playing wasn’t very smooth, due to the heavy downpour outside annoying her .
Suddenly there was a flash of lightning . A figure wearing a conical hat appeared by the window .
Meng Tingyu hurriedly knelt down, her forehead pressed onto the cold and wet floor .
She hadn’t finished speaking before she was interrupted .
“Little Yu, how are the little fish I wanted?” The voice was slightly aged, but it was gentle .
“Ready, there’s seven hundred thousand . ”
“Where are they from?”
“The capital’s been a mess recently . To fool people, I had the ‘merchants’ go by sea to the Earthorgin Realm and find some small fishes from a remote country there . ”
“And the quality?”
“Middling . However, I’ve been taking good care of them, so they’re in good condition . ”
“Did you talk to the people in power there?”
“Yes . They’re all intelligent people . This is the third time they’ve contributed fish, so cooperation has been smooth . ”
“Good . However, I’m going to need a lot more fish this time . ”
“I’ll make the arrangements . How many?”
“Another three hundred thousand . ”
