There was no need to go into details about the next climbing process. First, he used [Drone] to plan the route, then he just climbed smoothly like he was climbing a ladder.
After successfully coming to the periphery of the Acropolis, Fang Linyan took a break. At this time, the sky was full of stars. Overlooking the city of Athens, the lights were brilliant, and the night scene was intoxicating and amazing.
At this time, there was still a breeze blowing, which brought the smell of cloves and gooseberries. Behind him was the Acropolis full of vicissitudes of life as if it was silently telling the rise and fall of the past. A historical atmosphere that had accumulated for thousands of years surged out, making him feel admiration.
After the rest, Fang Linyan took out the scroll of Gaze of the Ancient God again, then he found that the scroll was heating and floated into the air by itself.
Immediately, small and large white translucent light balls slowly floated out from the ruins of the Acropolis into the scroll like the birds returning to the forest.
Not only that, the pattern on the scroll had also become translucent, but it gave people the feeling of returning light. The content inside had also undergone tremendous changes.
Although the background was still dusk and darkness had come, the dead tree had turned into a majestic tree with lush branches and leaves. The new green leaves were oval, and the patterns on the tree also emitted a faint light.
The pile of dead eagle bones disappeared, replaced by a white owl standing on a branch.
“My guess is correct indeed.” Fang Linyan narrowed his eyes.
“The olive tree, the pattern of war and wisdom, and the owl. With these 3 characteristics, the identity of this god is obvious!”
“She came from the head of the Father.”
“She controls the tactics of war and always leads the generals to victory.”
“She is one of the 12 gods of Olympia!”
“Her vocation is war/wisdom/craftsmanship, and everyone admires her!”
“She is admired and praised by thousands of people, and is known as gorgeous as a snake and a dragon with thousand forms!”
“She is the goddess Athena!”
Thinking of this, Fang Linyan couldn’t help feeling a little excited in his heart.
“The last world I went to was a world where magic and science were mixed. In such a world, because of the appearance of unnatural phenomena and the timeline is the 18th century, she could barely attract some believers. Athena of that plane just fell into a deep sleep instead of falling.”
“However, the world I live in now is a total world of technology. In such a world, even if there are believers, they are pan-believers!”
“Because god cannot be manifested in front of people and the foundation of society is science, people’s first choice must be to find a way from the scientific aspect when they encounter anything rather than worship god religiously.”
“During World War II, even when Germany was in despair, they went to Tibet, China to find the axis of the earth in the mysterious Shambara cave instead of worshipping the god of war Athena. It can be seen how much the gods of Olympus have fallen.”
“Not to mention that in the world I live in, even the barren resources of the shallow believers have been divided up by Catholicism, Buddhism and etc. The Confucianism and Taoism that have been passed down in the East for thousands of years are in a trend of decline, let alone an ancient god like Athena.”
“So, in this world, the original goddess Athena has completely fallen into a long sleep. Now, I should be bringing the god soul seed of Athena from another plane to inherit the fallen god’s legacy!”
After clarifying the context in his mind, Fang Linyan found that the nearby faith power light balls had been completely absorbed by the scroll, then he carried the scroll to another place with an astonishing amount of faith power.
That was the Parthenon!
It was built since BC and was located at the highest point in the center of the Acropolis. The temple also housed a miraculous statue of the goddess Athena, carved from gold ivory. The statue was ruined in the 16th century, the current statue was rebuilt later on. The remaining was just some dilapidated buildings, but it was still a world-class miracle.
As Fang Linyan was walking, Fang Linyan carefully avoided the camera and stopped about 10 meters away from the Parthenon.
However, even if he just walked here, he had already found that the faith power absorbed by the scroll had increased significantly. If the previous area was like the fireflies in the summer night, the faith power in this temple seemed to be flowing into the scroll like liquid.
Then, the scroll flew into the Parthenon by itself, suspended in the air, greedily absorbing the faith power. Fang Linyan even heard a rumbling sound from the ground. It should be a secret room hidden for thousands of years, then there were numerous flickering treasures flying into the scroll. The entire night sky was full of golden lights.
Fang Linyan was stunned by this scene. Those magnificent statues and vivid gold products could solve his current big problem if he could get one.
Haiz, it’s a pity. I can only see it.
At this moment, a flashlight suddenly shone directly in the distance, followed by an angry shout. 2 people were chasing after him. Fang Linyan frowned, knowing that he was accidentally found by the guards patrolling here.
He looked at the scroll floating in the air of the Parthenon, knowing that it was probably unrealistic to take it away at this time, so he could only run to the side.
Of course, the 2 guards refused to let go and ran after him. After Fang Linyan ran a dozen steps, he deliberately fell to the ground as if he stumbled on his feet while throwing a few euros to the side.
As he expected, after the 2 guards caught up, 1 of them ran to pick up the money immediately, and the other seemed to be more devoted to his duties. He held the baton and whacked it at Fang Linyan’s face.
This was obviously overdoing. If it was an ordinary person, he would probably suffer from a brain concussion and lose 3 teeth.
Fang Linyan knew that he was wrong to enter without permission, but he would at most be fined and kicked out. The guard’s action immediately made him feel deeply malicious.
So Fang Linyan did not retreat but advanced. He buried his head and avoided the batton, then he bumped into him while kicking with his knee. The guy widened his eyes and covered his crotch when falling slowly to the ground.
Then Fang Linyan turned around suddenly and went straight to the guard who was closer. He had just bent over to pick up the money. After hearing Fang Linyan’s footsteps, he turned around in panic and shouted,
“What are you doing!”
Fang Linyan punched his face, making him squat down while covering his face in pain. His tears and snot came out at the same time.
Anyway, Fang Linyan didn’t have any scruples. He turned around and tied up the guard with broken egg with a belt, then he covered his mouth with a smelly sock. Then, he turned around and went back to the guard who picked up the money.
This guy was in pain and was about to pull out his phone to call for backup. When he saw Fang Linyan turned around to look for him, he was so frightened that he even tapped several wrong numbers as he shouted,
“Don’t come over!!”
Fang Linyan turned a deaf ear to his words and kept approaching.
The guard was obviously incompetent; he simply turned around and ran, but after running a few steps, he felt a force from behind and was kicked down.
Fang Linyan bent down and whispered in his ear,
“Hey, I have a few questions to ask. If you cooperate well, then you will still have a chance to see your family. If I find out that you are lying, then take a good look at the surrounding scenery. After all, you probably see nothing after death.”
As soon as he heard the word “death”, the guard suddenly trembled, then he hurriedly said,
Fang Linyan searched his body first, then he said,
“My name is Fortunis, sir! I swear to the gods that what I say to you will be true!” Mr. Fortunis trembled.
Fang Linyan said,
“I’ve been here once a day this week, but every day it shows that the Acropolis will not be open to the public! Can you tell me why?”
“Because this week is the day for regular maintenance.”
Fang Linyan said,
“Has this happened in previous years?”
Fang Linyan said,
“Is there anything strange or unusual that happened recently?”
Fortunis hesitated for a moment and said,
“Well, if anything, it seems that our supervisor was transferred away yesterday and replaced with a new supervisor named Torres. I have never met him before.”
“After he came, he emphasized the issue of patrolling, stipulating that 2 people would patrol together every night, and he also formulated a very strict reward and punishment plan.”
Having said that, he began to complain,
“Our work is usually very easy. The night shift guards only have to patrol the Acropolis when it is dawn, then everyone will eat and drink and watch the soccer from 8 am to 12 pm. After that, we sleep early. Now like now, we have to check in 5 times every night!”
“Huh? Yesterday’s sudden change? The time when the Ancient God Gaze Scroll resonated with this place was also yesterday. Could it be a coincidence?”
