Chapter 1293 - Meeting At Night
Chapter 1293 - Meeting At Night
Nightscape gradually enveloped the massive Sacred Abyss City, but as the most bustling city in the Sacred Abyss Continent, this city was still lit up at night.
The massive Spiritual Array around this city made it one of the few safest places in the Sacred Abyss Continent, and only this place could make those adventurers relax.
Mu Chen quietly sat in a serene courtyard with his eyes closed to comprehend the stuff that his mother left for him.
In this travelling period, he never stopped his cultivation, and the effect was pretty good. Mu Chen could sense that as he continued to comprehend, his insights of Spiritual Arrays also gradually deepened. The High Rank Spiritual Array Scholar was just right before his reach.
Comprehending for an hour, Mu Chen slowly opened his eyes and he stretched out his hands. Spiritual Seals flew from his fingers and they interlinked, forming into a complicated Spiritual Array. But when it was almost completed, there was a subtle ripple that caused the entire Spiritual Array to shake before it collapsed.
Looking at the dissipating Spiritual Array, Mu Chen maintained a calm expression, since this was the Soaring Flame Array that his mother had left to him.
In this period, he had been researching this Spiritual Array, gaining experience on it. However, all his attempts failed.
In the end, such a high ranked Spiritual Array wasn’t something that could be easily set up.
However, Mu Chen also had swift improvements. He had gradually grasped many factors of this Spiritual Array. According to his plan, it’s just a matter of time before he thoroughly perceived it.
“Hmph?” While Mu Chen was reflecting on his failure, he suddenly raised his head to the sky, “Since you’re here, why bother to hide?”
As his voice landed, space fluctuated in the distance and he saw two silhouettes walking in the sky over to him. The first one was the white-clothed silhouette, the ice beauty that was following behind Elder Qing Xuan of the Ancient Buddha Clan.
At this moment, there was another girl beside her that looked to be someone from Elder Qing Xuan’s side.
“Ancient Buddha Clan, Qing Bloodline’s Qing Shuang.” The cold beauty landed before Mu Chen. Her voice sounded cold as well, without any ripples.
“Qing Bloodline’s Qing Ling.” The other girl had also introduced herself.
Mu Chen smiled. “I have no idea what you guys are saying.” There weren’t any emotions in his smile, but on the contrary, it was filled with coldness.
“Speak if you guys have anything for you to look for me. Naturally, if you want to bring me back to the Ancient Buddha Clan as the sinful child, I’m afraid that you guys don’t possess that capability.”
The girl who was named Qing Ling was naturally prideful, so she immediately became unhappy at Mu Chen’s cold words. “Hmph, your arrogance seems stronger than your cultivation in the Greater Earth Sovereign Realm.”
She was also a Greater Earth Sovereign herself, she wasn’t weak. Even ordinary Greater Earth Sovereigns wouldn’t be her opponent, so when she saw how Mu Chen acted so arrogantly as a Greater Earth Sovereign as well, she naturally felt unhappy.
Mu Chen did not bother about her, since the cold beauty was the leader here. Thus, he looked towards the latter. “If this is what you guys are here for, please leave.”
Qing Shuang looked at Mu Chen and slowly said, “It’s Aunt Xuan who called me to look for you. She wants you to leave the Sacred Abyss Continent immediately.”
Mu Chen knitted his brows and answered without any hesitation, “I’m afraid that I can’t do that.”
Qing Shuang knitted her brows. “Although Heavenly Sovereigns of the Ancient Buddha Clan can’t make a move against you, as per rules, Xuan Luo and Mo Xin intend to capture you. They’re all elites of our Ancient Buddha Clan with hopes to make a fight into the Heavenly Sovereign Realm in the future. You’re merely a Greater Earth Sovereign, so you surely won’t be able to escape if they see you!”
“Xuan Luo and Mo Xin…” Mu Chen’s gaze flickered as he already knew from Long Xiang that Xuan Luo and Mo Xin were the two best candidates as the next Patriarch of the Ancient Buddha Clan.
And that Gu Shihuang, was a subordinate of this Young Master Xuan Luo.
Mu Chen gently nodded his head towards Qing Shuang. “I appreciate all your goodwill, but I will not leave. If they want to make a move against me, come as they wish.”
Although the two Young Masters were powerful, he was not a pushover either. So they wouldn’t get what they wished.
“You truly do not know the immensity of heaven and earth!” Qing Ling knitted her brows as she raged, “The two of them have towering positions in the Ancient Buddha Clan, and even Big Sister Qing Shuang is fearful of them. But you actually want to compete with them? Don’t you know how to write ‘death’?!”
“Can’t you be a little more tactful, since we’re here to inform you about it?!”
Mu Chen raised his head and looked at Qing Mo with a faint smile. “If I knew how to write ‘death’, I’m afraid that I wouldn’t have made it this far.”
All these years, since when had he sought power while hanging between life and death? If all he knew was how to hide, how could he seek a breakthrough through those occasions?
He did not have the resources like them and had relied on himself to come this far to fight for them.
When Mu Chen faintly replied, Qing Ling was stunned. She could sense the danger from Mu Chen’s words.
The experience of this youth wasn’t something that they could compete against…
Qing Shuang’s cold face rippled as she looked at the youth. Under the latter’s calm smile, there was something hidden that even made her feel fearful.
Although he had a powerful mother, he did not receive any help. On the contrary, he had to hang on the rope between life and death to come this far, all by his own hard work.
Qing Shuang gently sighed as she said, “The reason why we’re here is to inform you about it. As for your choice, that depends on yourself.”
As she spoke, she briefly paused before continuing, “If you insist on being stubborn and stay in the Sacred Abyss Continent, then be careful. If you really encounter Xuan Luo and Mo Xin, you can come looking for me, and I’ll help you.”
Mu Chen looked at the cold beauty and his gaze rippled. Although Qing Shuang looked cold, that wasn’t the case in her heart.
However, Mu Chen still nodded his head. “If there’s nothing else, please leave.”
Although he could sense their kind intentions, he still had a barrier in his heart for the Ancient Buddha Clan. Thus, he had no plans of seeking their help.
Hearing Mu Chen’s intention to send them off, Qing Shuang did not say anything, but glanced at Mu Chen before leaving. Qing Ling, on the other hand, stomped her feet and glared at Mu Chen with indignance before following up as well.
When they left the courtyard, Qing Ling chased after Qing Shuang. “That Mu Chen is too arrogant, we’re helping him out of goodwill, and he doesn't appreciate it at all!”
“He has no idea how powerful Xuan Luo and Mo Xin is. Even a Perfected Earth Sovereign wouldn’t get any benefit encountering them, so clashing against them as a Greater Earth Sovereign is akin to an egg against a rock!”
They were prideful and arrogant most of the time, and it was rare for them to see such indifference like Mu Chen’s when talking to them. Furthermore, they came with goodwill, but Mu Chen did not show them any face, which made them feel indignant.
Qing Shuang gently shook her head. “Aunt Jing has been imprisoned for many years, and the mother and son have been separated for years. He naturally wouldn’t hold any good feelings for the Ancient Buddha Clan. Furthermore, it is also natural that he would be prideful and not accept our help.”
Qing Ling pouted. “But he can’t be stubborn and put on a brave act like this!”
She squinted her eyes as she turned around to look at the courtyard behind her. “Putting on a brave act? That might not be the case…”
“He’s just a Greater Earth Sovereign, what is there to be uncertain about?” Qing Ling flung her lips in disdain.
Qing Shuang knitted her brows. “For some reason, I felt a threatening aura coming from him, that was comparable to meeting Xuan Luo and Mo Xin…”
Qing Ling was shocked before she said, “Big Sister Qing Shuang, how is that possible? Aren’t you overestimating that fellow a little too much? How can he be comparable to Xuan Luo and Mo Xin, those two monsters?!”
Qing Shuang pursed her lips and nodded in hesitation. Perhaps it was really her misperception.
Compared to Xuan Luo and Mo Xin, Mu Chen did seem to be lacking in comparison…
