Zixing said solemnly, “The end of the world…”
“Yes, but not exactly so.” Long Xiruo shook her head. “To be precise, it is the world’s instinctual struggle and retaliation. The extraordinary existence has been consuming the resources of the main world. In the face of predators, who won’t be retaliating? There are many gods in the main world, but they have all disappeared in the long river of history. The most famous occurrence is the twilight of the Western gods.”
“Judging from your words, is the twilight of the gods driven by the will of the main world?” Zixing opened her mouth in surprise.
“I’m just speculating.” Long Xiruo shook her head, “However, different gods have disappeared or fallen one after another. Even my Divine Land’s hell gate is closed. The demon beast clan is showing a declining trend. It is only with the help of the human race’s luck that we get to survive. This involves many aspects. But, it is hard to tell whether it’s related.”
Long Xiruo suddenly looked at Zixing, “Every overshoot flourish will only result in inevitable decline. Even if you cultivated the so-called immortal physique, you would eventually be unable to escape The Five Declines of Heavenly Connection. Some don’t want to perish. They do everything possible to separate themselves from the main world completely. They only wish to hide in the corner somewhere in peace. But after all, these beings looted countless resources from the main world since the beginning of their journey. The main world has already branded them deeply. It won’t be easy to be totally detached.”
“Your Majesty Dragon Saintess is saying that Izanami’s Yan Wuyue world is a plan to cut the connection with the main world?” Zixing came into a realization.
“That’s supposed to be the case.” Long Xiruo was puzzled, “But if that’s her goal, why does she open the world and absorb you all in? The cinema incident… I think someone is pulling strings from the dark.”
“Your Majesty Dragon Saintess, do you know that there are any detached beings who have succeeded in this main world?” Zixing suddenly asked.
“That’s hard to say.” Long Xiruo shook her head again, “Since the True Dragon originated from the Divine Land’s dragon vein, it can be said we’re completely tied to the main world. There is no possibility of detachment. Once the Divine Land’s dragon vein leaves the main world, perish awaits us. If there is a place where Transcended gathers, how can I get into contact with them?”
Her tone became gloomy. Zixing listened to the story with resignation. Silence permeated the air at the moment. There was a vague record in Greedy Wolf Clan about transcending. It was not the first time she had heard it, but she was still low-spirited.
“Legend says that Penglai allows Immortal Ascension. Hence, acquiring Transcendence from the world.” Zixing looked at Dragon Saintess nonchalantly, “It is also said that the first True Dragon of Divine Land came from Penglai.”
“I know what you want to ask.” Long Xiruo frowned. “But I advise you to dispel this idea. To tell you the truth, there is nothing in the True Dragon’s inheritance regarding the origin of the first True Dragon. To say that the first True Dragon came from Penglai, even I have no idea about it, let alone the outsiders.”
She changed her posture and seemed to feel more comfortable. She looked at Zixing again and said slowly, “Many years ago, the Greedy Wolf Clan had a talented Greedy Wolf Star. He once wanted to dig this secret. So, he confronted the True Dragon of the same generation. I think you know what happened to the Greedy Wolf Star after that battle. I think this story should be recorded in your inheritance.”
But Zixing didn’t give up and said, “But Your Majesty, can you be a bystander and witness the world consume the demon beast clan and render us disappear completely?”
“I can’t help it.” Long Xiruo sighed, “If this is the case, then we can only follow the world’s will. Now that humanity is prosperous, the luck borrowed to the demon beast clan from humanity will allow the demon beast race to survive for a long time. As for whether there will be a solution in the future, no one can be sure. So, you don’t have to worry too much. Who can predict the future?”
“According to legend, the top of Mount Tai was once the place where Penglai last appeared.” Zixing took a deep breath, “Your Majesty Dragon Saintess, Divine Land cultivators have held a memorial ceremony on Mount Tai every ten years. Are you saying that those efforts are in vain?”
Long Xiruo was silent for a long time. Then, she looked at Greedy Wolf Clan Young Master, who was at a young age. She then said softly, “Immortal makes the mountain renowned rather than the height; the dragon makes the water spiritual rather than the depth. Morality carries more weight than appearance.”
“Your Majesty Dragon Saintess?” Zixing seemed enlightened, but she couldn’t catch the meaning behind it even after deep thoughts.
“You should leave. I’m a little tired.” Long Xiruo shook her head. “There is a place where we store food in the back, and there is a kitchen. So if you are hungry, you can make yourself some food.”
Zixing knew that it was already a blessing to have a long conversation with the True Dragon Saintess. Under the subtle hint, Zixing, who held her pride, did not intend to pester further. So she bowed directly and left.
Long Xiruo looked at the closed door but suddenly muttered, “They all say that Penglai is great, but who knows the bitterness the Immortals are suffering.”
She shook her head, sighed, glanced at the folded A4 paper, and cursed at the moment: Fuck! How do I find it with this drawing!
When Long Xiruo planned to light a cigarette to suppress her shock, there was a knock on the door outside.
“Who?!” She muttered impatiently and said with an unfriendly tone, “Come in!”
The one who opened the door was Windchaser, who was looking around. Seeing Windchaser coming in, Long Xiruo was taken aback. Of course, Windchaser was also taken aback. He initially thought Master Long was here, but he didn’t expect to see Young Master Long.
Regarding the Young Master Long, he had heard Mo Xiaofei talking about it. Moreover, he had met Master Long at least twice, albeit with the lack of interaction.
“Windchaser? What are you looking for?” Long Xiruo asked subconsciously.
“Ah…No! I’m here to meet Master Long. Since she isn’t here, I won’t bother you.” Windchaser said and left slowly.
Long Xiruo hurriedly shouted, “Wait, if you have anything to look for her, you can speak to me. She instructed me to put more attention into all of your affairs before she left. Let’s talk about it!”
Matter regarding us? Windchaser didn’t know who she was referring to. But, since the conversation moved on to this point, Windchaser stopped.
“This is the case, Young Master Long.” Windchaser stepped forward and asked after giving it a few thoughts, “I was going to ask Master Long for knowledge regarding ancient stars.”
Long Xiruo was stunned when she heard it and subconsciously said, “Knowledge of ancient stars? What do you want to learn from this? The system is complicated. There is no one learning it without hundred years of immersion in learning it! Youngsters! Don’t be too ambitious. A good foundation is the right way. You should cultivate your demon beast power first!”
You’re just a small kid. Windchaser moved his lips as if he wanted to argue about it. But, he was concerned and nodded in the end, “Fine, I get it.”
Long Xiruo sighed but suddenly remembered something. She stood up from the executive chair, stared at Windchaser, and asked, “Wait, why are you suddenly interested in ancient stars? Who told you about it? “
“I…I heard.” Windchaser hesitated for a moment. He suddenly felt that he had come over recklessly and seemed a little lacking in thinking.
Long Xiruo assessed Windchaser for a long while, then narrowed her eyes as if she wanted to see through Windchaser. Then, she frowned and reverted to silence.
“Young Master Long?”
“Windchaser, right?” Long Xiruo sat down, “From today, you and Mo Xiaofei will go to the training ground of the hospital underground to receive training!”
“Also, you need to keep a distance from Zixing from now on!” Long Xiruo stared at Windchaser thoughtfully and said sternly, “Don’t be horny!”
