CSG - Chapter 2940: Origins of the Four Brothers

The Sacred Lord of Guarding Energy spoke firmly, leaving no room for negotiation. His presence continued to build up, constantly on the rise. The terrifying vital energy could annihilate the world and smash through the stars.

His next strike would definitely be as violent as a cascade of lightning.

Sensing the Sacred Lord of Guarding Energy’s rising presence, the ancestral elder of the right groaned inside. For a moment, there was nothing he could do.

If he tried to fight, he was not his opponent.

If he tried to retreat, he was not permitted to back down either.

All he could do now was place his hopes on the two other archaean clans.

However, right when the Sacred Lord of Guarding Energy’s presence peaked, and he had lost the patience to keep waiting, the communication techniques from two extremely great powers of souls tore through the space and arrived.

The Sacred Lord of Guarding Energy frowned, but he soon let out a cold snort, and the power of a soul just as great erupted out, directly tearing through the region and appearing in the Saints’ World. It split off into two groups and reached the very depths of the vast cosmos, arriving at an unknown land.

The three powers of souls intermingled and clashed, but conflict or battle did not erupt. They actually communicated with one another like this.

In the end, the three powers of souls all receded. The Sacred Lord of Guarding Energy seemed to reach an agreement with the owners of the two powers of souls and no longer obstructed the Lightning God clan anymore. His presence began to subside as he said nonchalantly, “Since the Dao clan and the Violet Crepeflower clan have stood forward and spoken for you, I’ll take a step back and allow the people of your Lightning God clan into the Spirits’ World. But you must stay behind.”

The ancestral elder of the right let out a sigh of relief and clasped his fist with a smile. “Then I’ll stay right here as you’ve asked, Sacred Lord of Guarding Energy. I’ll send the other experts of the clan into the Spirits’ World.”

Their battle ended just like that. The Sacred Lord of Guarding Energy returned to the entrance of the Spirits’ World at the same time. As soon as he returned, the Sacred Lord of Guarding Energy vanished, no longer interfering with anything that went on near the entrance. He even turned a blind eye to the ancestral elder of the right’s seal over the entrance.

The ancestral elder of the right sat in space. In that moment, his ancient body seemed to possess a lofty power that could suppress the heavens. The space seemed to collapse completely simply from his sitting there. The violent Laws of Lightning wreaked havoc, preventing anyone from approaching.

Afterwards, with a wave of his hand, Lei Yun and Lei Huaji appeared out of thin air. Apart from them, there were several dozen other experts of the Lightning God clan behind them, all Infinite Primes or Chaotic Primes!

“I’ll stay here and prevent anyone from leaving the Spirits’ World with the Origin of Ways before you can get to it. It’ll be up to you to search the Spirits’ World,” the ancestral elder of the right said to them.

Afterwards, Lei Yun and Lei Huaji personally led the experts of the Lightning God clan through the passageway.

They were the last group of experts that entered the Spirits’ World from the Saints’ World. After them, not a single spaceship or cultivator set foot into the Spirits’ World.

The cultivators and spaceships that returned from the Spirits’ World were unaffected, but without any exception, everyone had been thoroughly inspected by the ancestral elder of the right’s powerful senses of the soul.

“Since I’m watching this place in person, nothing should go wrong with our Lightning God clan obtaining the Origin of Ways, as no one can fool my senses. Even if they’ve already absorbed the Origin of Ways, the presence of the Origin of Ways will remain in their souls.”

“This presence won’t disappear in a short period of time. As long as we refine their souls, we can extract some of it.”

“This touches on the Saint Monarch’s fate, as well as the entire clan’s fate. For this, I’ll do anything, even if I have to slaughter millions.”

......

“Carry out a detailed search across the entire Burial Zone. If you find anything, report it immediately!”

Outside the Burial Zone in the Spirits’ World, Lei Yun and Lei Huaji said to the Primordial realm experts behind them. Then all of them separated and scattered across the Burial Zone.

The two ancestors, Lei Yun and Lei Huaji, also personally participated in the search.

“You must be careful. Recently, Lei Ruhuo of the Heavenly Lightning clan died here. Even the Heaven-punishing Lightning Soul Banner the Saint Monarch bestowed upon them was lost. If there’s danger, contact us immediately. The ancestral elder is waiting on the other side,” Lei Yun said to Lei Huaji carefully before they separated.

Lei Huaji nodded sternly before moving off into the distance.

In the Burial Zone, the various Primordial realm experts of the Lightning God clan wandered through the different regions, carrying out a close search across the entire place.

It’s extremely likely that someone has hidden away where the Origin of Ways appeared, so you cannot leave any spot, no matter how small, unsearched.” A great elder of the Lightning God clan passed through a region of spatial cracks cautiously, constantly looking around with the senses of his soul. He carried out an extremely meticulous search.

But he was clueless that a ruined continent was hidden away in an inconspicuous crack when he passed by a number of other cracks of various sizes.

On the ruined continent was the Origin of Ways they had been painstakingly searching for, and it had been gushing out constantly. Five figures completely absorbed it.

Among them, the woman in white absorbed the most Origin of Ways. Eighty percent of the Origin of Ways that gushed out went to her, while the remaining twenty percent went to the four brothers.

The woman in white was the elder princess of the Heavenly Palace of Great Radiance who had recently killed a Grand Prime ancestor of the Heavenly Lightning clan and taken the Heaven-punishing Lightning Soul Banner, Fang Jing.

All of the Origin of Ways she absorbed was used to strengthen her soul. As she absorbed more and more Origin of Ways, her soul rapidly grew at a visible rate.

To her, she no longer needed the Origin of Ways to comprehend the ways of the world, as her memories had already been awakened. Everything she once knew, comprehended, and experienced had all returned. Comprehending the ways of the world was instead unnecessary for her.

Her only objective right now was to make her soul recover.

The stronger the powers of her soul were, the stronger the power of laws she could wield, and she could wield them for longer.

The people of the Lightning God clan? Sure enough, the news of the Origin of Ways has drawn them over, as that’s the only thing that can cure the Lightning Saint Monarch of his injuries of ways.” At this moment, Fang Jing slowly opened her eyes as she absorbed the Origin of Ways. She peered at the space there, and her gaze seemed to pass through the various obstacles, reaching the Burial Zone.

The Heavenly Lightning clan has just lost a Grand Prime recently. They should have received the news long ago, so they must have sent a supreme expert this time,” Fang Jing thought and raised her guard.

Afterwards, she looked at the four brothers and murmured, “They’re too weak. They absorb too slowly.”

After a slight moment of consideration, Fang Jing formed a seal with her hands, and a cluster of dense Origin of Ways immediately condensed in her hand, gradually forming four walnut-sized balls.

With a flick, the four balls flew into the brothers’ bodies.

Soon afterwards, the Origin of Ways finally ran dry and stopped gushing out. The four brothers stirred as well.

“Thank you for this, senior!” The four brothers bowed towards Fang Jing together.

Gazing at the four bowing brothers, a strange light filled Fang Jing’s eyes. She said, “You don’t have to refer to me as senior. That’s not a title I can bear. I’m called Fang Jing, so you can just call me by my name. Elder princess works too.”

“Yes, elder princess!” The four brothers did not want to call her directly by her name, so after some consideration, they felt like elder princess was more appropriate.

However, the four of them were perplexed, as even they felt like this terrifyingly-powerful woman was treating them a little too well. Certain things she said were mystifying too.

“Elder princess, we four brothers are confused by one thing. Earlier, you said we came from the same place as you. Do you also come from the Tian Yuan clan, elder princess?”

Fang Jing shook her head. Her gaze towards the four brothers was indescribably strange. She said, “Looks like you still don’t know about your origins. More accurately, the four of you should belong to the Immortals’ World. Your lives were granted by the greatest expert of the Immortals’ World in the past, the Nirvanic Immortal Exalt.”

“Actually, your names should not be A’Da, A’Er, A’San, or A’Si either. If you must have a name, then it should be Mortality, Reincarnation, Slaughter, and Severance.”

The four brothers were even more confused. Fang Jing’s words left them completely stumped. They had no idea what was going on.

Fang Jing said slowly, “The Nirvanic Immortal Exalt was publicly recognised as the greatest expert in the Immortals’ World. He possessed four divine swords, which were called the Sword of Mortality, the Sword of Reincarnated, the Sword of Slaughter, and the Sword of Severance.”

“Each sword possessed exceptional might, and the four of you are actually the sword Qi the Nirvanic Immortal Exalt left behind through these four swords.”

“The Nirvanic Immortal Exalt was a sovereign of the Way of the Sword. Every single sword Qi from him was living, possessing a life of its own. The four strands of sword Qi you were should have been at the very top in this respect.”

“But for some reason, the four of you developed intelligence and actually reincarnated as people, which sure is extremely rare.”
