Chapter 2333: The Heavenly Secrets Divulged
Jian Chen sat on the hill for several days. On the surface, he seemed calm, but he was actually unsettled inside. He was experiencing some anxiety.
Several days had already passed, but the Tower of Radiance remained the same. There was no news from the artifact spirit either.
He was filled with worry for the artifact spirit. Even when he sensed that ancient imprints drifted through the space where he was several times, he was not interested in them.
“Hmm? Chang Yang, why did you come so far away?”
At this moment, Donglin Yanxue’s voice rang out from afar. There was a sliver of joy within it.
Accompanied by the eight protectors, Donglin Yanxue flew towards the hill where Jian Chen sat.
Donglin Yanxue stood beside Jian Chen and looked at him. The light in her eyes shone as she said quietly, “Chang Yang, you must have benefited quite a lot in the past few days.”
Her voice contained a certain gentleness.
However, when the protectors behind her heard her speak like this, they showed an expression like their doubts had been confirmed. Afterwards, their gazes towards Jian Chen bore some intrigue.
If it were before, they still would have held some doubts about the matter of Donglin Yanxue falling in love with Jian Chen. However, now that they had heard how gently Donglin Yanxue spoke to Jian Chen, everything had been confirmed.
This was because they could all clearly sense that Donglin Yanxue’s treatment of Jian Chen differed drastically from her treatment of them.
“I wonder just how skilled Chang Yang is to capture the Chosen Saint’s heart so soon,” the protectors sighed in amazement. They all gave Jian Chen a thumbs up, admiring his ability.
Jian Chen sat on the hill without moving at all. He only stared at the ground blankly like he did not sense their approach. He only shook his head gently and said nothing.
Currently, all of his concerns were with the artifact spirit. He was in no mood to converse with Donglin Yanxue.
Donglin Yanxue did not mind Jian Chen’s coldness. She sat down beside Jian Chen and looked at him. Even though Jian Chen’s face was nothing special due to the disguise, it held a certain sense of attraction for Donglin Yanxue.
“Chang Yang, all the contents within the ancient imprints here belong to the Primordial realm. Obtaining them is several times more difficult compared to those on the outside. You only entered the sacred pavilion a few days ago, so it’s nothing strange if you haven’t benefited,” Donglin Yanxue thought Jian Chen was dispirited from failing to obtain anything. She comforted him softly, “Actually, it’s not just you. None of us have managed to obtain anything either. However, you don’t need to worry too much. The mist within the Tower of Radiance has suddenly thinned out for some reason, so we can stay her for an even longer period of time. I think you’ll benefit in the end with your talent.”
“Chang Yang only has a one-colored soulcore, and his talent is only one star. What talent can he have?” The protectors behind her all pouted in thought.
At this moment, the mist in the area surged once again. It churned like a dragon was swimming through it, causing the space there to distort as the ground rumbled gently.
In that moment, the world within the Tower of Radiance seemed to have revived from the dead. It suddenly sprang to life, and the veins of the ground began to awaken. The slumbering power seemed to rouse gradually as well.
A gleam of light flashed through Jian Chen’s eyes. Suddenly, he stood up and glanced at the surroundings. His eyes gradually lit up.
He knew the sudden phenomenon in the Tower of Radiance was related to the artifact spirit; this filled him with endless anticipation.
“What’s happening? What is happening? How is it possible for the world within the Tower of Radiance to tremble…”
“What’s happening to the Tower of Radiance? Why have weird things happened one after another? The ancient records have never detailed anything like this…”
The sudden occurrences made the eight protectors uneasy. They all became worried. None of them knew what was happening.
At this moment, extremely pure Radiant Saint Force suddenly appeared. No one knew where it came from; it seemed like it had appeared out of nowhere. Afterwards, it rapidly permeated the surroundings, enveloping the entire world before gradually filling every inch of the Tower of Radiance.
The eight protectors were startled by this Radiant Saint Force origin energy at first, but they were soon ravished with joy.
“What pure Radiant Saint Force. It’s even denser than the energy within the sacred hall. A- and there seems to be fragments of laws within them…”
“There really are fragments of the Laws of the Hallowed within the Radiant Saint Force. Absorbing these fragments is equivalent to directly absorbing the power of the Laws of the Hallowed. It’ll make our comprehension even easier…”
“This is a huge fortune, a huge fortuitous encounter. We can’t afford to miss out on it. Everyone, cultivate quickly…”
“Yeah, yeah. Cultivate. Quick, cultivate. Don’t waste any time at all…”
The eight protectors were utterly overjoyed. They immediately sat down and began to cultivate as hard as they could, absorbing as much of the fragments within the Radiant Saint Force as possible.
“Chang Yang, what’re you staring blankly for? Hurry up and cultivate. Once you miss out on this opportunity, it will never present itself again,” Donglin Yanxue called out to Jian Chen before immediately cultivating as well.
Jian Chen sensed what was going on silently before closing his eyes slowly and beginning to cultivate as well.
At the same time, a white-robed figure enveloped by light sat within a secret room of the Radiant Saint Hall. He gave off a tremendous pressure naturally, causing the entire space in the secret room to seemingly freeze up.
Extremely powerful Laws of the Hallowed revolved around him. His comprehension of the laws had clearly reached an extremely deep level. Every single strand of laws gathered around him possessed devastating power.
He was the leader of the Radiant Saint Hall, the supreme existence within the Radiant Saint Hall.
Suddenly, the leader of the Radiant Saint Hall opened his eyes. His gaze was sharp, piercing through the obstructions as he looked in the direction of the Tower of Radiance. He murmured, “The heavenly secrets have revealed themselves in a flash. Something has happened to the Tower of Radiance!” With that, he silently vanished. When he appeared again, he was outside the Tower of Radiance pinned down by a Grand Exalt’s formation.
“Why have you come?” An indifferent voice rang out. Vice-leader Xuan Zhan appeared silently as well.
“Leader, why have you come personally? Has something happened within the Tower of Radiance?” Another voice rang out. It bore some respect. Vice-leader Mo He appeared there too.
The leader stared at the Tower of Radiance firmly as the light in his eyes flickered. He became both surprised and doubtful, “When I was cultivating, I suddenly established a connection with the world and saw a glimpse of the heavenly secrets. Something surprising has probably happened within the Tower of Radiance.”
“What? Something has happened within the Tower of Radiance?” The faces of both Xuan Zhan and Mo He changed. They became stern.
“What has happened within the Tower of Radiance?” Xuan Zhan asked sternly.
The leader shook his head and said solemnly, “The heavenly secrets are obscure. It’s impossible to see them clearly. I only saw a haze as well. I couldn’t see it clearly, nor can I tell whether it’s good or bad. You stay here. I’ll go in and investigate just what has happened to the Tower of Radiance.”
