Chapter 1183: Finale
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Just how powerful was the full-force attack of the Emperor Beast?
Fang Yuan could only feel a violent wave coming at him, nearly sweeping his whole being off the altar.
The void beast kings were also crouching on the ground, stopping all movement in that split second.
After the dust settled, there was a huge pit on the altar.
This mysterious treasure that had stood for countless years was actually damaged to this extent by the blows of three almighties!
Dao Ancestors Hu Tian and Jun Tian were half kneeling at the center of the huge pit, bleeding from their noses.
The Emperor Beast looked even more miserable. Its horns were broken, and half of its body had reduced to nothingness. However, the platinum flame of light in its remaining good eye was growing increasingly stronger.
“Both sides are severely injured?! But the patriarchs have the advantage…” Fang Yuan understood from looking at the two patriarchs crawling up compared to the Emperor Beast that seemed to have lost its fighting power.
The void beast kings lost their motivation upon seeing the desolate state their emperor was in. Their frenzy and the mad red veins on their bodies retreated, and they shrank to a side while shaking.
“Let’s kill this Emperor Beast first before splitting the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss!” Patriarchs Jun Tian and Hu Tian exchanged glances while speaking indifferently.
The two of them came to the front of the Emperor Beast and merged their black and white lights into the chaotic light of the Great Cosmological Abyss.
Right at the moment, Fang Yuan felt the civilization fire seed suddenly jump in his chest and could not help quietly muttering, “Coming.”
Two figures burst in through a crystal wall in an invincible manner and suddenly appeared in this dark cave!
“Pan Wang? Tian Xing?” Patriarchs Jun Tian and Hu Tian paused, as they recognized these leaders of the two outside universes. “We felt something wrong previously, but it never occurred to us that it was you two little kids…”
Their generation was much higher, so they could naturally address these newcomers as little kids.
But to Fang Yuan and Dao Ancestor Feng Hua, the lights of the Great Cosmological Abyss from these two newcomers were not only at the second realm but were also very close to Dao Ancestors Jun Tian and Hu Tian!
Facts had proven that these two leaders who had fought against each other to their deaths on the outside had now entered an alliance, albeit temporarily in this Final Destination.
“Haha… Pan Wang, you actually joined hands with the enemy even though the Huaxia Universe was destroyed. How unfilial…” Dao Ancestor Jun Tian looked at Tian Xing before turning to Pan Wang and shaking his head.
“The Huaxia Universe has regressed into void many times before anyway. We just need to search for another natural source to reestablish it again…” Pan Wang was a middle-aged man with eyes like green jade. “Why don’t you allow the two of us to work together to eliminate evil since even you, Patriarch Jun Tian, and Patriarch Hu Tian can join hands?”
“Eliminate evil?” Dao Ancestor Hu Tian sneered. “Immature wolves, you’re actually plotting against the two of us!”
“Because we discovered some things during the great war. For example, how the previous Grand Xia civilization divided because of a pair of brothers, and these brothers became the leaders of the separate factions…”
Dao Ancestor Tian Xing might look rough, but he managed to deduce what happened and revealed these ancient secrets. “I knew we couldn’t continue when I found out that all those Dao Ancestors who died and the sacrifices of the two sides for countless years were actually because of a conflict between brothers. We have to get rid of this cancerous tumor for the sake of all the Dao Ancestors who fell in the past!”
“Haha… Jun Tian, I didn’t think that there would be people still caught up about matters of the past!” Patriarch Hu Tian’s eyes glinted with danger. “Do you not understand? As long as there are Dao Ancestors, there will be disputes. It’s not because of Jun Tian and me. Grand Xia was too powerful, so powerful that even external elements couldn’t destroy it, and internal strife was sure to ensue with time. Jun Tian and I only brought it about earlier. You should thank us. How else would the power of the two universes be able to last until today?”
“Nonsense!” Dao Ancestors Pan Wang and Tian Xing were highly intelligent people, and they knew that Dao Ancestor Hu Tian’s words were not false. However, they were not about to disclose that they had taken a fancy to the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss. They just wanted an excuse to exterminate their ancestors, so they stood firm and rebuked, “Today, you two old things will pay the price!”
Their cultivation bases were at the peak of the second realm as well. They might not be able to match Jun Tian and Hu Tian when they were at their peak, but right now their opponents had less than fifty percent of their strength left, so they had nothing to fear.
Dao Ancestor Feng Hua’s face changed drastically. She did not expect things to develop to this point.
However, Fang Yuan stayed silent and moved a few steps secretly.
“As expected, interest is what moves people. There are no two ways about it! I really don’t want to…” Dao Ancestor Jun Tian’s expression did not change much even as he was facing two strong opponents.
“Haha… Unexpectedly, we’re still forced to this step after all!” Dao Ancestor Hu Tian grinned. “I don’t want to either. Otherwise, we could have obtained the natural source the previous time!”
“How unfortunate…” Patriarch Jun Tian heaved a long sigh and suddenly joined hands with Patriarch Hu Tian.
The black and white light fused like the two sides of the Taiji, generating chaos!
And from this chaos, another light was born!
This light was everywhere and was infinitely close to the complete power of the Great Cosmological Abyss. It suddenly turned into a human form.
The human youth looked neither male nor female. He was full of divine light, and he had one red and one black eye, very strange indeed.
A terrifying imposing manner surpassing that of the Emperor Beast suddenly exploded out!
Dao Ancestor Feng Hua and the remaining void beast kings felt like a thousand mountains weighed on their shoulders and knelt directly on the ground.
“Hu Tian… You and Jun Tian are actually… the same person?” Pan Wang’s and Tian Xing’s expressions drastically changed.
Jun Tian and Hu Tian reunited into one person. His power was infinitely near to the third realm, and his injuries disappeared as well. He could now be considered the strongest in the Great Cosmological Abyss!
“I’m neither Jun Tian nor Hu Tian, but the original… Jun Hu!”
Patriarch Jun Hu’s voice changed as well, and his hands indifferently pushed out.
An extremely condensed power of the Great Cosmological Abyss surged out like a giant wave.
As it passed through, even the original altar and the crystalized power of the Great Cosmological Abyss broke into pieces. The black river evaporated, and the void beast kings roared again and again in agony but still slowly melted.
“Even after everything, I still didn’t ever expect that Hu Tian and Jun Tian was one person!”
“Unless they were pushed to the edge, they would never have chosen to give themselves up and reunite into one to become a whole new life!”
Pan Wang and Tian Xing glanced at each other and pushed back against the rich power of the Great Cosmological Abyss, struggling to stand still and withstand the wave.
Just then, an unexpected help entered the battlefield.
The Emperor Beast that was dying on the ground had its entire body blazing with flames. It actually chose to completely ignite its life to give Patriarch Jun Hu a fatal blow from behind!
What kind of existence was the Emperor Beast?
It truly stood at the top of the Great Cosmological Abyss before Patriarch Jun Hu appeared! No one person could rival it!
It might be seriously injured, but the power exuding from its tough body that could resist the water of the river of resentment was still fearsome.
Patriarch Jun Hu’s eyes were a little dazed. He subconsciously withdrew his left hand and pushed backward!
A layer of light of the Great Cosmological Abyss emerged, resisting the final attack of the Emperor Beast!
Resisting the might of three peak almighties alone was the true strength of Patriarch Jun Hu!
In this deadlock of consumption, one person on the scene could still move. That was Fang Yuan!
“Patriarch Jun Hu might be unmatched, but he’s a new life after all. His intelligence is currently like that of a child, and he will need quite a bit of time to digest the information and memories of the two patriarchs. His grasp of the battle situation isn’t too precise yet. Now is my chance!”
He was wrapped in the light of civilization and was struggling to move forward while being hit by all sorts of aftershocks. He came to the center of the altar and looked at the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss.
After gazing at the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss, he directly jumped into it.
What Fang Yuan was doing right now was to gambling!
Although he might not know how long it would take to refine the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss, his future was bleak no matter who won. Therefore, his only hope was to refine the natural source and break through to the third realm so that he could gain the initiative.
Seeing Fang Yuan jump into the natural source, even Patriarch Jun Hu was stunned for a second before screaming angrily.
The patriarch had subconsciously believed that Fang Yuan would not have the spare power to do anything since even the void beast kings and Dao Ancestor Feng Hua were kneeling before him.
Who could have thought that this small ant could achieve so much?
Moreover, Jun Hu’s consciousness was concentrated on merging two memories. His mind was like that of a child. Fang Yuan had not shown any hostility toward Jun Hu, so he had not received any attention. This was how he managed to seize this opportunity!
“How dare you?!” Patriarch Jun Hu was furious and about to deliver a blow when he was pulled back by Dao Ancestors Tian Xing and Pan Wang.
They could see very clearly that they could only die in this battle since they had not taken into account the variable that was Patriarch Jun Hu!
Then, their only variable was Fang Yuan! Even if they could escape now, they would eventually be caught by Patriarch Jun Hu if he could refine the natural source!
Therefore, they gave it their all to pin down Patriarch Jun Hu to create the opportunity for Fang Yuan.
As for the Emperor Beast, its only purpose was to destroy this great enemy before it!
The situation went into a deadlock.
At this time, Fang Yuan was enveloped by a white light.
He felt as though a baby returned to its mother’s body, very comfortable and at ease. His entire body was slowly melting, revealing the Dream Dao Fruit.
His Dream Dao Fruit had a crystal-like surface, with the light of the secondary power of the Great Cosmological Abyss condensed on it, which was standard for those at the second realm.
However, his Dream Dao Fruit was now melting slowly in the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss.
It started from the surface before slowly eroding the core.
At the critical moment, the faint white fire seed suddenly appeared, flickering.
The aura immediately awakened Fang Yuan’s True Spirit.
“Where is this?”
“Yes… I am refining the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss. But how could I have known that the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss was so terrifying? I’m not the one refining it, but it’s the one refining me…”
As the Dream Dao Fruit slowly melted, Fang Yuan’s consciousness gradually disappeared.
“The only way to survive is to completely comprehend the third realm before my Dao Fruit completely disappears!”
Fang Yuan could feel every fiber of his being burning and sublimating under the tremendous pressure of life and death, directing all of his energy at breaking through to the third realm that no one had ever attained.
His own accumulation, his experiences of all the worlds, the many legacies, and all other sorts of experiences emerged at this moment, making his realm climb to the peak of the second realm and continue sprinting upward.
“If I want to refine the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss, I must first grasp the true meaning of nothing. What is true nothing?”
Unfortunately, he was just that one strand away from breaking through.
Fang Yuan exhausted all his being and still obtained nothing. His aura rushed all the way to the limit before falling back helplessly.
“Forget it… I’m already much better than many mortals seeking the Dao, and I have no regrets in this life…”
His Dao Fruit finally melted into nothingness.
Fang Yuan died, and his Dao vanished!
“Haha… A small Dao Ancestor dares to snatch from me!”
Pan Wang’s and Tian Xing’s hearts sank when they felt Fang Yuan’s aura completely disappear. On the other hand, Patriarch Jun Hu was roaring with laughter. He clenched his left hand into a fist and pulverized the Emperor Beast. His right hand swung sideways and threw the two leaders flying.
“The natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss is mine!” Patriarch Jun Hu stepped forward slowly and came to the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss. He gazed at it longingly.
The next moment…!
A sudden turn of events!
A palm as smooth as jade suddenly protruded from the natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss and stabbed right into Patriarch Jun Hu’s chest.
The natural source of the Great Cosmological Abyss transformed into a human figure. It was Fang Yuan!
“How is this… possible?!” Patriarch Jun Hu looked at his chest and then at Fang Yuan. His defense was nothing in the face of the true power of the Great Cosmological Abyss. “Didn’t you die?”
“I did… But after dying, I realized what true ‘nothing’ means. That is, not even thinking of anything and letting everything return to the silence of void!”
Fang Yuan smiled slightly. A white light flashed, and Patriarch Jun Hu turned into ashes.
“You…” The surviving Dao Ancestors all looked at Fang Yuan with longing eyes and disbelief. “The third realm?!”
“That’s right. I’ve broken through…”
Fang Yuan nodded with thanks and stepped out. His entire being disappeared and came to the Great Cosmological Abyss!
The Final Destination was easy to enter but difficult to leave. Being able to reach the Great Cosmological Abyss was absolute proof of breaking through!
“The fire seed of the Huaxia civilization!”
He took out the fire seed that was in danger of extinguishing.
It was nearly completely eroded in the Great Cosmological Abyss, but Fang Yuan blew on it, and it started shining brightly.
Fang Yuan gazed at the void in front of him and said calmly, “I say… this place should have the natural source of a universe!”
The power of the Great Cosmological Abyss surged, creating the natural source of a universe out of nothing.
He pushed the fire seed forward to integrate with the natural source of the universe and reestablish the Huaxia Universe!
Its aura was energetic as the universe continued to expand, giving birth to many lives and planets.
On the land, birds chirps, barbarians howled, and a large number of the True Spirits of Dao Ancestors reincarnated and restarted on their path of cultivation.
Among the stars, an inconspicuous blue planet revolved endlessly around the sun.
A sincere smile broke out on Fang Yuan’s face upon seeing this. “I… am back!”
