Wolfgang smiled bitterly, “We have no reason to limit the development of our descendants, no matter if he aspires to become an archaeologist or ancient linguist.”
Lucifer nodded, but she heard the hardship in Wolfgang’s words.
Wolfgang cast a questioning look at this moment.
Lucifer was silent for a while before saying, “I accept this sacrifice. I have my rules. Since you offer me good things, I will give you a considerable return. I’m different from HIM. I would never talk about illusory things but give you something substantial.”
“Thank you, Your Highness!”
Lucifer stood up and said, “From now on, you may visit me and play me a piece of music every Tuesday and Sunday. Also, let’s reduce the condition from 100 pieces to 50 pieces.”
Wolfgang was overjoyed at once. This made his original mission several folds simpler, making his goal seemingly attainable. He didn’t need to get cramped every time he played the piano and yet still couldn’t satisfy the Ruler of Hell.
“In that case, I’ll go and prepare now.” Wolfgang said happily, “Your Highness, I just happened to compose a new piece!”
Lucifer said playfully, “Let’s start from next week onwards because I’m not in the mood today. That will disrupt my original schedule too.”
Wolfgang was a little gloomy because he couldn’t perform today. But, the good news was that he had gotten Lucifer’s promise. Waiting a few more days didn’t seem too challenging for Wolfgang, who had attained a long lifespan.
“Then, I will take my leave first, Your Highness.” Wolfgang performed standard court manners.
“Wait, if your descendants can still find the remnant pages of “Dead Sea Documents” in the future, you can continue to bring them to me.” Lucifer smiled lightly, “If there are enough of them, maybe I can directly accompany you back to the cracks.”
Wolfgang wasn’t as happy as he had imagined when he heard such a promise but just nodded. Unfortunately, it felt like an empty promise. His descendant was considered at the top of his luck to find a broken page.
Therefore, Wolfgang himself wasn’t so optimistic about it.
Because, according to legend, the complete “Dead Sea Documents” contained the secret to unlocking another treasure… the “Akashic Records” that recorded the roots of everything.
Charlotte took the page from Lucifer’s hand and was curious, “Dead Sea Documents.’ The legendary clue to ‘Akashic Records,’ and Wolfgang is willing to give it to you.”
Lucifer said indifferently, “Transcended relies on the world’s crack to obtain a result approaching eternal life. As one of the origins, ‘Akashic Records’ is an important carrier of the main world’s consciousness. It’s precious to the extent that HE will be willing to exchange the entire Eden for it. However, such a treasure is equivalent to poison for the Transcended group.”
As she said, Lucifer sneered, “These fellows who have betrayed the main world dare not provoke the world. To exchange it for my permission seems to be a big loss for others. But to Wolfgang, he has utilized waste to achieve the best result. Besides, there is only one page. It’s isn’t as great as it seems.”
“Then, who do you still make the promise to him?” asked Charlotte puzzledly.
“I want to motivate him a little. After all, the initiative is still in my hands. I make the final call if the piece of music satisfies me. What is the difference between a piece of music and a hundred pieces of music? Besides, this page just so happens to record the war between that brother and me.”
Lucifer smiled, “Although the most important role of “Dead Sea Documents” is to act as a beacon to find ‘Akashic Records,’ it also has an exciting ability.”
“Having a complete “Dead Sea Documents” is equivalent to having the ability to rewrite history.” Lucifer said in excitement, “The holder can rewrite history through it. Of course, such rewriting doesn’t change the history or what happened in the past. What it rewrites is people’s perception of the related history.”
“I don’t understand,” asked Charlotte directly.
Lucifer said, “For example. A man named Lion. He died in a war a hundred years ago, and he was just a minute soldier. But by rewriting “Dead Sea Documents,” we can make the later generations recognize that Lion as a great king who was once invincible and even created a great country. Then, all history will serve the Lion. This great man will appear in all our cognition, knowledge, and literature. But, the real Lion is still the minute soldier.”
“It’s not so much rewriting…” Charlotte said in shock, “It’s more accurate to say that this is the ability to manipulate historical memory! This is horrifying!”
“No matter how horrifying it is, you still need to have the complete Dead Sea Documents.” Lucifer said with a pity, “Although this is the case, there has never been a guy who can get the complete “Dead Sea Documents.” It’s still unknown whether the ability truly exists.”
“I might be able to foretell where the rest of the remaining pages are.” Charlotte picked up the remaining pages, curling her hair with her fingers. Her face filled with excitement, “If there is a clue, the success rate should not be bad.”
Lucifer was silent. Why do you like divination so much?
“Um… I don’t know why I suddenly feel better.” Lucifer said abruptly, “Charlotte, come with me to the courtyard for tea.”
But the next moment, Lucifer suddenly stopped and frowned. Charlotte looked concerned, but Lucifer said, “Bucky is calling me.”
“Bucky? Did he show up?” Charlotte froze for a moment. “It appears that he is in danger.”
Before the conversation with Wolfgang, Bucky’s presence just disappeared. How did it reappear so soon?
Lucifer was baffled, “He had indeed called to me, but it was faint. It seems that it’s something troublesome.”
Lucifer shook her head and waved her hand. On the floor in front of her, a black six-pointed star suddenly appeared, “I don’t know who you are, but you need to pay a little price for coveting my prey.”
Once the Son of Light, the morning star, and the Ruler of Hell… Her identity could shock the transcended world easily. She really wouldn’t bat an eye on many things.
Charlotte shook her head. Probably there’s a native god or god’s descendant who captured Bucky in a trap.
After all, Bucky had Lucifer’s gift in him: Great Luck.
However, Lucifer suddenly spurted out a mouthful of blood at this moment. The black six-pointed star array in front of her had shattered.
Before she could speak out, she fell directly to the ground with horrified eyes.
“Lucifer!” Charlotte was shocked.
After falling to the ground, Lucifer was in a coma immediately!
