Chapter 1621: The strongest Divine Artifact!



The side of a mountain.


There was nothing but bottomless cliffs on all sides and a single small winding path that led directly deeper underground.


There was nothing in the void except the profound darkness.


Other than the path they were walking on, nothing else could be seen.


Demon Dragon led his two sworn brothers while carefully moving forward.


“Absolutely do not use any power, otherwise, if you attract any wraith spirits, we’re all dead” Demon Dragon reminded them.


His two sworn brothers both nodded.


——-just earlier, from the dark void of space, an ugly glowing spirit had just drifted next to them.


It was immeasurable.


Just by glancing at it, Gu Qing Shan felt a chill running down his spine.


Scared?


Is my body feeling scared?


Gu Qing Shan was surprised when he realized this.


While walking, Zhao Jiu Xuan asked: “Brother Leng, would our world really be saved after you obtain that Divine Artifact?”


“Even the Mara Bow and the Divine Wraith Talisman were expelled from this world by it, do you think it’s powerful or not?” Demon Dragon asked in return.


“Very powerful!” Zhao Jiu Xuan excitedly replied.


“Wait a minute, if it was such a powerful Divine Artifact, why had the Wraith Lords not taken it from underground despite it being so many years already?” Gu Qing Shan asked.


Demon Dragon chuckled and replied: “They were afraid”


“Afraid?”


“That’s right, all of them were cultivators, those who colonized the Wraith realm later on. None of them were true Wraiths, and that location belonged to a sealing ground that had existed since the previous era. Other than the Wraiths, anyone else who attempted to enter would be devoured by the hundreds of thousands of wraith spirits” Demon Dragon explained.


Right after he said that, Demon Dragon seemed to notice something and abruptly sent his voice: “Don’t move, don’t say a single word”


The three of them instantly stopped.


In the empty darkness far above their heads, something was glowing, flickering.


——-they were gigantic Wraiths.


However, none of them was solid and were instead transparent spirits.


These spirits appeared like floating luminescent creatures at the depths of the oceans, which quickly flew over their heads before disappearing back into the darkness.


This was such a close brush that Gu Qing Shan could clearly sense their presence.


He lightly rubbed his hands together as he looked down.


His hands were drenched in cold sweat.


They’re already this powerful despite just being spirits?


Gu Qing Shan silently sighed.


I had thought that I already knew everything there was to know about the Wraith realm, who would have thought that such a terrifying location still exists?


The three of them silently waited.


A few moments later.


Demon Dragon glanced at the Occultism statue in his hand.


The statue nodded at him and replied: 「 Safe 」


The three of them sighed in relief and continued to head downwards.


“Is it still far away?” Zhao Jiu Xuan asked.


“We’ll reach that place soon, there are even more wraith spirits below——- from now on, only talk by sending your voice, don’t utter a single sound” Demon Dragon said.


“Yes” Zhao Jiu Xuan and Gu Qing Shan answered in unison.


While walking, Gu Qing Shan was also lost in thought.


—— the wraith cultivators would naturally not try to arbitrarily enter such a terrifying place, but if there was an exceptionally powerful Divine Artifact here, then the situation would be very different.


The wraith cultivators would have attempted everything they could and tried every solution they had; even if they had to fill this place with corpses, they would have wanted to obtain that Divine Artifact.


Even without that, Reneedol was a naturally greedy individual.


Did she not think about obtaining that Divine Artifact as well?


“Brother Leng…”


Gu Qing Shan slowly sent his voice and expressed his doubts.


Demon Dragon’s gaze appeared reminiscent again before answering: “Actually, a very long time ago, the wraith cultivators had indeed tried to use Professionists from over a dozen worlds to explore this place, but even after everyone had died, they still couldn’t reach the bottommost floor”


“After knowing about this, the Grand Empress had attempted to use this Occultism treasure to avoid all the wraith spirits and led a group of people to the bottom… but in the end, she gave up on that Divine Artifact…”


“If it truly was such a powerful Divine Artifact, how could she have willingly given it up?” Gu Qing Shan asked.


“That Divine Artifact talked with her for a short while and explained that it wasn’t yet time, and forcefully taking it away would mean death——- even if she was the Grand Empress, she would still be devoured completely by all the wraith spirits without leaving even her soul behind” Demon Dragon explained.


Gu Qing Shan silently nodded.


—-death.


If nothing else, that would certainly scare Reneedol.


How could Demon Dragon know such a secret?


Most likely because of his previous life.


He used to be a genius of the Wraith Realm, someone who had made it to the center of power.


During this life, he couldn’t fight against the Apocalypse in his world, so he naturally thought about this Divine Artifact.


—–But then, that Divine Artifact told Reneedol that it wasn’t time yet.


Could it have already been time now?


Demon Dragon continued sending his voice: “There were actually several paths that could reach the bottom, but after the Divine Artifact rejected the Grand Empress, all of these paths had been sealed off due to it being too dangerous”


“——-But I just happened to know this path that no one had ever gone on before”


At this point, the Occultism statue suddenly called out: 「 Hurry up and hide! 」


Demon Dragon instantly stopped and laid down flat on the small path without moving an inch.


Gu Qing Shan and Zhao Jiu Xuan both retracted all of their presence and laid down on the path as well.


This path was so narrow that Gu Qing Shan had to tilt his body in order to lay flat while still remaining close to the ground.


——part of his body was still sticking out from the bottomless cliff.


Countless spirits flickered in and out of their visions in the outside darkness.


One breath.


Two breaths.


Suddenly, an unprecedentedly gigantic spirit showed up.


「 Ooouoooouooouoo… too long… too long… 」


The spirit uttered what sounded like silent sobbing as it flew across them from the left before disappearing after a long while.


「 Safe 」


The Occultism statue said.


The three of them stood up and continued moving forward.


“The power of that spirit just now has surpassed all of my imagination—— what exactly are these spirits?” Gu Qing Shan sent his voice and asked.


“I’m not sure. The wraith cultivators in the past had all agreed that these spirits were a part of the Divine Artifact” Demon Dragon replied.


Gu Qing Shan fell silent.


If that was truly the case, that Divine Artifact would be ridiculously powerful.


Even a single spirit that it unleashed would be able to eradicate the entire Wraith realm.


No wonder Reneedol didn’t act thoughtlessly even though she had conquered countless worlds and was still being served by the two Deities of Fate.


No wonder Demon Dragon had claimed that it was a Divine Artifact that surpassed the twin swords Heaven and Earth.


“The outside still hasn’t realized what’s happening here, we need to speed up, we’re already close” Demon Dragon sent his voice.


Gu Qing Shan and Zhao Jiu Xuan nodded in unison.


After that, the three of them continued to move forward, occasionally hiding from the wraith spirits.


Until finally.


They reached the end of the path.


From the darkness around them, several other paths could be faintly seen also leading here.


——-There was a stone pedestal that hovered within the boundless darkness.


At the very center of the pedestal, there was a sword.


“That’s it” Demon Dragon said with a dry tone.


After going through two lives, I’m finally here again.


He began to make his way towards the sword.


“Wait!” Gu Qing Shan put his hand on his shoulder.


“What’s the matter?” Demon Dragon asked.


“Brother Leng, it had already rejected the Grand Empress, so how do you know that it wouldn’t reject you?” Gu Qing Shan asked in return.


Demon Dragon chuckled with a faint fluctuation in his eyes.


He thought briefly and sent his voice: “Since we’re already at this point, I won’t hide it from you any further. In reality, my most powerful asset wasn’t my strength, but rather a certain unique talent I was born with—— friendliness towards all items”


“Friendliness towards all items?” Gu Qing Shan doubtfully asked.


“That’s right, it sounds very common——- but did you know? I’ve once managed to find three genuine coins among countless fake ones” Demon Dragon proudly boasted.


“What’s so great about some coins?” Zhao Jiu Xuan asked with a puzzled tone.


“You don’t know just how precious those coins were—–” Demon Dragon chuckled: “In truth, I was born with this ability, it belongs to my soul, an exclusive ability within this entire Space Vortex, no one else has the same power to be friendly towards all items like I do”


“That is why even if the Grand Empress couldn’t do it, I would be able to!”


He quickly made his way towards the sword.


Gu Qing Shan was speechless.


I didn’t expect Demon Dragon to have such a trump card.


No wonder he managed to obtain the Key to the Past.


——in other words, he should be able to use his ability to conquer this sword right now?


Gu Qing Shan’s gaze fell onto the sword.


A sword…


He silently perceived it but felt a bad omen.


Gu Qing Shan quickly realized something and called out again: “Brother Leng, you still have the Occultism Artifact with you, how about you try using it to check if you can take the sword”


Demon Dragon stopped his footsteps again and looked back at Gu Qing Shan with a strange expression.


“Chu Feng, there’s no need to be so careful, I know my ability very well, there wouldn’t be any issues” he said.


“I’m worried that there might be issues from other sources” Gu Qing Shan replied.


Demon Dragon pondered briefly before raising the statue again.


“Can I take this sword?” he asked the statue.


The silver-haired old man opened his eyes to look at Demon Dragon and sung: 「 When not predestined—- 」


Music began to play.


The silver-haired old man waved his hands with extreme force and sung: 「 Do not force it, definitely do not force it~ 」


After saying that, the statue suddenly slipped into the void of space and disappeared.


—–it ran away.


Demon Dragon froze up.


Gu Qing Shan’s mind quickly turned and shouted: “Brother Leng, something isn’t right, listen to that Occultism Artifact and don’t take that sword”


Looking at the sword, Demon Dragon’s expression was full of hesitation and muttered: “I’ve planned this out for too long already, I can’t just give up because of a few words”


[You are correct, rare living being who carries ‘Artifact Intimacy’]


This voice originated from——-


The three of them turned towards the sword.


The voice of the sword continued:


[I’ve finally managed to wait until this moment. It is time for my awakening, the moment of greatness where I and my wielder would achieve the peerless grand plan]


Clink!


The sword suddenly flew up and hovered in front of Demon Dragon.


[Come, take me up and cut off your past humiliation, triumph against the greatest enemy in your mind, and fight against the Apocalypse] the sword vibrated as it spoke.


Gu Qing Shan’s expression changed, wanting to stop it, but suddenly found himself unable to move.


Lines of glowing text popped up on the War God UI:


[Your soul has been affected by the Restraints of Profound Demons, thus you’re unable to make any movements]


At the same time, Demon Dragon reached his hands out.


And grasped the sword.
