Chapter 2183: Essence Blood of a Grand Exalt
“The Origin of Ways? Senior, was the presence before the Origin of Ways?” Jian Chen asked out of curiosity.
“That’s right; it was the Origin of Ways. The Origin of Ways is extremely precious in the Saints’ World, so precious that even Grand Primes would be willing to go as far as shed blood for it. This is because the Origin of Ways comes from when sovereigns of the world who had comprehended to the limits of laws pass away in meditation. The Origin of Ways is condensed from their cultivation, a crystallisation of laws. Only those who have not reached the level of Grand Exalts can benefit greatly when they absorb the Origin of Ways.”
“There are two ways for Grand Exalts to die. One of them is for them to die in battle against similar experts. All Grand Exalts who pass away like this will not leave behind the Origin of Ways. The other way is for them to pass away in meditation like the ancient Skywolf, where they vanish from the world.”
“Only when Grand Exalts pass away in meditation like the ancient Skywolf would they leave behind the Origin of Ways,” the old woman explained to Jian Chen at a steady pace. Then she looked at Jian Chen with shining eyes, “Do you understand how precious the Origin of Ways is now?”
“So that’s how the Origin of Ways comes about,” Jian Chen was perturbed. He stared at the stone doorway with mixed feelings and said, “I never thought that this would be where the ancient Skywolf passed away.”
Jian Chen sighed gently. He deeply bowed towards the simple, stone doorway out of respect. Only then did he go through it.
After stepping through the doorway, Jian Chen immediately felt like he had left the Saints’ World and come to an alternative space. He knew that the stone doorway was like a tunnel through space. The moment he strode through it, he had entered a miniature world.
Jian Chen studied the surroundings and discovered that the miniature world was not large. It was rather empty. Apart from the small, wooden hut encased by a barrier at the end of the world, there was only a droplet of blood that hovered in the centre.
The blood was the size of a thumb. It hovered there silently like a ruby.
When Jian Chen saw the droplet of blood, his mind immediately shuddered as his eyes narrowed.
This was because he could feel a tremendous energy within the droplet of blood, causing the inconspicuous blood to possess devastating energy.
“This droplet of blood should be the ancient Skywolf’s essence blood. Only Grand Exalts, sovereigns of the world that embody the very laws themselves, can leave behind a droplet of essence blood that remains just as powerful as before even after who knows how long.” The old woman and Kai Ya also arrived. The old woman stared at the droplet of blood extremely sternly and said in thought, “The energy in the blood is enough to frighten even me. If it erupts, probably even peak Chaotic Primes can’t survive. Be careful. Don’t touch the blood.”
However, before the old woman had finished speaking, the droplet of frightening blood suddenly shook gently. Afterwards, under the shocked gaze of the old woman, the blood gradually approached the power of the bloodline that had come from Jian Chen.
All of their eyes narrowed when they saw this. Their hearts pounded uncontrollably as they felt afraid and uneasy.
It had to be mentioned that the blood had been purposefully left behind by the past Grand Exalt, the ancient Skywolf. It was so powerful and terrifying that it frightened even the old woman. If an accident really occurred, and the terrifying energy in the blood erupted, the consequences would be unthinkable.
Jian Chen had already taken out the Anatta Tower. He looked at the two droplets of blood nervously. He was preparing for the worst case scenario.
In the end, the two droplets of blood finally approached each other and slowly merged, turning into a droplet of blood that was larger. The energy inside was peaceful, no longer unstable.
With this, all three of them felt relieved. They could finally calm their restless hearts.
“Have a look if you can still control the blood,” the old woman said to Jian Chen.
Jian Chen nodded. Immediately, he used his connection with the power of the bloodline to try control it.
Immediately, the power of the bloodline that had fused with the ancient Skywolf’s essence blood seemed to receive some kind of calling, flying towards Jian Chen.
Jian Chen was overjoyed. He could actually control the power of the bloodline like before. However, he no longer dared to make the power of the bloodline return to his body. Instead, he made it hover before his eyes. He studied it sternly and seriously to confirm that there would be no problems or issues with the blood.
After a close inspection, Jian Chen discovered that the power of the bloodline had not merged with the ancient Skywolf’s essence blood properly. It seemed more like the power of the bloodline had surrounded the essence blood, rapidly absorbing the tremendous energy within the essence blood to strengthen itself.
Even though the essence blood had been left behind by a past Grand Exalt, it only contained terrifying energy now. It completely allowed the power of the bloodline to rapidly devour its energy without resisting at all.
Jian Chen was exulted with this. He had just been worrying that the power of the ancient Skywolf’s bloodline could not increase, so as his personal strength increased, the assistance it would provide would become minuscule. However, he had never thought that he would have such a great fortuitous encounter, accidentally finding a droplet of essence blood from the ancient Skywolf.
“It’s just a pity that the energy in the essence blood can only be absorbed by the power of the bloodline that shares the same origins. Otherwise, it will resist instinctively and lead to severe consequences. It looks like it’ll still take quite some time before the power of the bloodline completely absorbs the essence blood,” Jian Chen thought. He completely stopped worrying and allowed the power of the bloodline back into his body.
Afterwards, Jian Chen looked at the small, wooden hut enveloped by a barrier. Since the miniature world was where the ancient Skywolf had passed away, it went without saying that the wooden hut contained the ancient Skywolf’s legacy.
This was a Grand Exalt’s legacy. Even though Jian Chen cultivated the Chaotic Body, it was an irresistible temptation.
“Don’t fantasise about it. It’s impossible for you to get through the barrier because it’s a bloodline barrier. Only members of the Wolf clan with the power of the ancient Skywolf’s bloodline have the right to enter. Although you possess the power of the ancient Skywolf’s bloodline, you’re still a human in the end,” said the old woman.
