Dark clouds gathered, and a strange phenomenon occurred! The sky was covered in a faint blood color. Mysterious creatures with blurry numbers appeared and disappeared. All of them raised their heads and roared at the sky!
Seeing this scene, everyone was stunned again. Damn! This was too monstrous!
Even though many old antiques had lived for so many years and had seen countless storms, they were always calm. At this moment, when they saw this scene, they could not help but curse!
On the first day of his birth, he had breathed in purple qi and cried with the Dao sound. Not only did it bring countless benefits to the surroundings, it directly allowed countless people to advance by a large level! Now, the hurdles that had originally troubled them had been cleared. It was only a matter of time before they broke through!!!
But now, he had advanced his own cultivation on the first day of his birth? The Lin family’s ancestor could barely maintain his calm at this moment. However, when he looked at the unique phenomenon in the sky, the corners of his eyes could not help but twitch. Fortunately, this kind of prodigy was in his Lin family!
A blood-colored halo appeared in the sky as countless Dao runes circulated.
Although the abnormal phenomenon of the painting of all life resisting the heavens did not emit a very strong fluctuation, the profundity contained in it was indeed extremely complex! Countless living beings and various legendary existences appeared in it!
At a glance, it was actually as if they were in ancient times, and the ferocious aura of slaughter assaulted their faces! This was… a young prodigy? The corners of everyone’s mouths twitched.
If not for the fact that the fluctuation of this phenomenon was not powerful and was only a breakthrough in the lower third realms, no one would doubt this scene if it was said to be the medium third level or the upper third level!
The streams of light in the sky did not last for long. In less than half an hour, they disappeared completely. This also confirmed the thoughts of everyone that the cause was a young prodigy.
The entire banquet was silent. The faces of many forces turned ugly, their expressions changing constantly.
After waiting for a long time, someone heaved a sigh of relief and said helplessly, “I still can’t believe it. Such fluctuation is actually coming from a young prodigy…”
“The Lin family is really powerful…”
Upon hearing this, the Lin family’s ancestor slowly spoke with a calm expression. “The cause is my family’s Saint Child and not my breakthrough. Don’t tell me everyone still has some doubts about it?”
Everyone nodded helplessly. How could they not believe it? He had already broken through in front of them!
“Ancestor of the Lin family, may I ask if you have broken through two levels in two days?” The Holy Maiden of the Light Shaking Holy Land calmed her mind and asked.
“Sort of,” the Lin family’s ancestor nodded. He looked at the elders who were from the same era as him and smiled, “It’s not that amazing.”
Damn!! There were a few old fellows there who were all around the same age as the Lin family’s ancestor. After so many years, they had established their own factions and their relationship was not bad. Now that they saw the Lin family’s ancestor being smug, they were immediately angered! It was one thing if they could not compare to him, but their descendants were similarly disappointing?
They had originally planned to ridicule this old fellow for not having a genius in their family for a hundred years at this banquet. Now, what was the point of mocking him?
The few old fellows blew their beards and glared at him. However, they quickly laughed. Their laughter was very dignified and friendly.
“In that case, Ancestor Lin, you actually did not take that step?” An old man in a black robe whose shoulders were broad and powerful asked with a chuckle.
“We already said that it’s the descendant of the Lin family, our Saint Child. How could the Lin family’s ancestor have taken that step? Aren’t you asking the obvious?” An elder said angrily. Then, he tidied his clothes and smiled as he picked up his teacup to take a sip.
“What a pity, what a pity…”
“What a pity. I thought that the Lin family’s ancestor was one step ahead. How disappointing…”
Many old fellows spoke in a strange tone. The others at the banquet looked at each other. They quietly drank their tea and ate their melon seeds. Facing a group of old fellows, no one else dared to speak.
“I think you are just envious.” The Lin family’s ancestor chuckled.
“Of course not, of course not. We were just disappointed that we did not manage to drink the advancement wine of the Lin family’s ancestor.”
The elder with the sword case on his back and sword qi all over his body acted extremely calm, but his tone was rather strange.
“What a pity!” The old man with broad shoulders sighed.
Seeing his old friends’ behavior, the Lin family’s ancestor chuckled and said, “It’s fine. In any case, you will come again soon.”
“Again?” The elders were stunned.
“With the birth of the Saint Child, I have also gained some insights,” replied the Lin family’s ancestor with a smile.
The sword wielding elder’s movements immediately stiffened.
“Although I haven’t broken through now, the obstructions on the path have probably been cleared. However, to really break through and take the key step, it will still take a long time… About three years I would say.” The Lin family’s ancestor stroked his beard with a gentle smile.
“In this long period of time, I hope to properly nurture the next generation. After all, the next generation is the future hope. We’re all old fellows.”
Seeing the Lin family’s ancestor’s appearance, many leaders of the factions nearly could not help but laugh. They could only lower their heads and hold it in. The Demoness’ beautiful eyes flickered as she looked around.
Even the old fellows who usually had good tempers were almost unable to endure it at this moment. The corners of their mouths twitched, and the old man holding the sword case forcefully swallowed this tea.
Three years? Not to mention three years, even three hundred years or three thousand years was nothing if he could take that step! This was equivalent to making a breakthrough!
“I’m old. The next generation is the hope of the future.” The Lin family’s ancestor looked into the distance and spoke calmly.
On the spot, an old fellow crushed the cup in his hand and looked at the clansmen beside him, who lowered their heads and did not dare to speak, with an unfriendly gaze.
‘I’ll teach you a lesson when we get back! Look at that prodigy! Then look at yourselves!’
Feeling the gazes of the ancestors, these people who had already obtained great authority in their respective families wailed in their minds, filled with helplessness.
Ancestor! Don’t just blame us! Aren’t you inferior to the Lin family’s ancestor as well!?
