Chapter 1786: Laying siege
A beautiful blonde girl flew into the sky as her figure rapidly weaved among the clouds.
She occasionally tossed some colorful spells forward, then swiftly chanted their counter-spells to cancel them out.
Training one’s casting ability early in the morning was beneficial for improving work efficiency for the whole day.
——even Gods preferred to enter a cultivating state immediately as the day began.
The blonde girl was one of many Gods of the Deep Wood, so she profoundly understood this fact.
After completing a round of casting training, she hovered in the sky, several ten thousand meters above ground, with her eyes closed, preparing to enter deep meditation.
Suddenly, she sensed something and reached her hand into the void of space to grab it.
A magical Card was delivered by the wind and neatly landed in her hands.
The Card depicted a suit of divine and dignified female armor, the size of which was exactly suitable for her.
A faint voice could seemingly be heard from the Card:
[This is a suit of armor of great power, come closer, put it on, and the entire world will lay at your feet]
The blonde girl opened her eyes wide.
She stared closely at the Card and asked: “Can it really promote my divine powers to become more powerful?”
A voice replied from the Card: [Indeed, you only need to give it a try and you will trust my words without worry]
After hearing that, the blonde girl ripped the Card in half.
She then began to laugh joyfully, so much so that she couldn’t even stop herself.
From the void of space, a different girl with black hair appeared.
“Sect sister, what are you laughing about?” the black-haired girl curiously asked.
“Aha, you don’t understand, I just experienced something especially funny”
“A Corrupted Item appeared and tried to tempt me”
“Ah? Really!? You’re rich then!” the black-haired girl exclaimed.
“That’s right, now all I need to do is report to the Divine Council and pass the lie detector test, then I’ll be granted the corresponding privileges” the blonde girl chuckled smugly.
The black-haired girl displayed a look of admiration, then suddenly asked: “Sister, do you think someone would be so dumb that they get tempted and accidentally become a Corrupted being?”
“Even an idiot wouldn’t be that stupid, after all, the Weave is constantly monitoring the world’s magic, whenever something out of the ordinary occurred, every God would notice the unnatural reactions” the blonde girl shrugged.
The black-haired girl sighed: “Hah, when will I be as lucky as you are, getting into contact with a Corrupted Item like this…”
The blonde girl replied: “I’m heading to the Divine Council to report this morning’s matter now——- how did that unique teleportation spell go again?”
She thought about it briefly and muttered: “Dispel superstition, seek truth”
The blonde girl vanished from the sky.
The Divine Monitoring Council.
This was the world’s center of power established by Gu Qing Shan.
The young man from years ago had now become a grown adult who held absolute power.
Seated on the Supreme Seat, he was constantly monitoring 36 different magical screens.
As the two worlds completed their fusion, an all-out war of culture and civilization was slowly being engaged.
——except the two sides weren’t on the same playing field at all.
The people of the corrupted world were like frogs that had just been let out of their well, only witnessing actual truth and reality for the very first time.
They were deeply shaken by a civilization populated by only magic users with numerous Gods walking among men.
Their beliefs had completely collapsed.
Change was slowly but surely seeping into the minds of everyone.
With a casual wave of his hand, Gu Qing Shan dismissed the magic screens.
He then stretched his back.
The confrontation seemed to only have begun.
But as far as he saw it, the issue had already been dealt with.
Establishing a magical world wide web – the Weave, then teaching the method to achieve Godhood through magic to the entire world, allowing the world as a whole to reach almost the same level as the ancient Age of Gods.
These so-called Gods were nothing but organisms whose existences were comprised of the Laws of Reality.
The Samsara permitted such a thing to happen——
Because this wasn’t a trick or ruse to deceive living beings, but rather using Truth to educate everyone, allowing them to understand the essence of the world.
——-for Gu Qing Shan, this wasn’t a particularly difficult matter.
“After so many years… it’s finally going to complete”
Gu Qing Shan muttered to himself, full of emotions.
Suddenly, lines of bloody red text appeared in front of his vision:
[The Samsara has recognized your actions]
[It has inferred the results of this trend of development, and judged that you have obtained victory during this confrontation against the Corruption Sequence]
[You will now return this Divine Wizard’s body, which the Samsara will accept]
Reading it all, Gu Qing Shan appeared a bit regretful.
This body had used Su Xue Er’s [Infinite Evolution], and was capable of using the old pixie’s [Playing Dirty] Quipcraft.
——because his opposition was a type of Sequence, in order to prevent any unexpected situations from occurring, Gu Qing Shan had continued to maintain [Playing Dirty].
This body was now essentially that of a pixie that possessed the power of a magical God.
“After the Samsara takes this body away, what does it intend on doing?” Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but ask.
[Most likely a ‘Chosen One’ will be selected to enter this body and continue to play your role] the Supreme Sequence answered.
“Alright, then what do we get?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
[Wait a moment, the Samsara’s will is descending]
A moment later.
Gu Qing Shan felt himself being isolated from the entire world to enter a region of complete emptiness.
Once again, the Samsara descended upon this emptiness and communicated with him through it.
Gu Qing Shan instantly gained a sense of understanding.
At the same time, lines of bloody red text swiftly appeared in the void of space:
[Attention: You’ve completed the Samsara’s request and earned 100,000 Merits]
[You will also obtain two privileges]
[Firstly, your Samsara Divine Skill: Tribulation Lord is about to enter hibernation and complete its evolution in 12 hours, thus evolving into a higher level of the Heaven realm’s Dharma!]
[Secondly, you are allowed to instantly travel between the Human realm grave and Star Gazer city]
[You must make your choice immediately, would you like to return to Star Gazer city, or continue to explore the Human realm grave?]
Gu Qing Shan appeared happy.
The Heaven realm’s Dharma being able to evolve to the next level was an unquestionably good thing.
Right as he was about to choose to continue exploring the Human realm grave, he realized something.
I’ve been in this world for so many years, how much time has passed on the outside world?
He tried asking.
[1 year in the grave is 1 hour outside] the Sequence answered.
Gu Qing Shan sighed in relief.
——so not much time has actually passed.
But I can’t let my guard down either.
Although the Heavenly Emperor in the Heavenly Palace was a fake, that Heavenly Emperor had still made an attack on Star Gazer once.
For some reason, Gu Qing Shan felt a bit uneasy.
He pondered for a few moments.
I’m currently risking my life in the Human realm grave, but if I’m not careful and let the fake Heavenly Emperor somehow destroy or takeover Star Gazer city, I might as well not be doing this.
“I choose to return to Star Gazer city immediately!” Gu Qing Shan said.
At the very next moment.
He felt himself separating from the body, then rapidly moved through countless worlds to return to Star Gazer city in an instant.
As he landed on solid ground, he looked down at his body.
——-yup, this is my original body.
『 Gu Qing Shan, you made it back just in time! 』
A worried voice sounded into his ears, it was Li An.
“Huh? What’s the matter?” Gu Qing Shan turned around to look.
『 All the people of the Heavenly Palace have returned—— they’ve temporarily stopped exploring the Great Tomb, almost as if they’re preparing for something 』Li An hurriedly explained.
Gu Qing Shan swiftly walked up to the deck of Star Gazer city to observe the Heavenly Palace.
Only to see that immense light was radiating above the Heavenly Palace, with numerous heavenly beings gathered at the main square of the city, all of which had focused their gazes on him.
In just a few moments, a gigantic offensive formation had manifested in the void of space outside of the Heavenly Palace.
The runes surrounding this offensive formation gradually grew brighter as it exuded a ferocious presence.
A gigantic object began to appear at the center of the formation.
——it was a battering ram in the shape of a nine-clawed golden dragon, its size a little bigger compared to both cities combined.
『 After collecting their Merit, the Heavenly Palace had once again upgraded their [Limited Basic Long-distance Bombardment] to ‘Advanced’——- I’m worried that we won’t be able to endure it 』Li An said with considerable worry in her voice.
Gu Qing Shan silently observed the gigantic battering ram.
The real Heavenly Emperor is an entity that has been alive for over ten million years, so he’s currently exploring the Human realm grave.
The fake Heavenly Emperor remained in the Heavenly Palace to oversee business here.
This fake Heavenly Emperor——–
He’s trying to——-
『 They’re laying siege! Gu Qing Shan! 』Li An exclaimed.
Gu Qing Shan turned towards the main square of the Heavenly Palace.
Only to see that the fake Heavenly Emperor was holding a flag in his hand before heavily swinging it down:
「 Open——– fire——– 」
Following this order, all the heavenly beings began to move.
They rode on clouds as they formed into formations to attempt an attack on Star Gazer city.
In front of all the heavenly beings——-
The battering ram was violently moving towards Star Gazer city with seemingly unstoppable force!
