CSG - Chapter 3049 - Bargaining Chip
Mo Tianyun gazed at the Rain Abbess deeply and said, “With your current strength, you’re actually so infatuated over a man who can never reach Grand Prime. That truly is rare in the Saints’ World.”
Mo Tianyun paused for a moment before continuing, “I’ve come to find you this time with two intentions in mind. The first is to settle our grievances. The second is to make a deal with you. However, by the looks of things right now, the grievances of the past can probably only be settled through the deal.”
The Rain Abbess cast aside her random thoughts and recovered her icy demeanour. She asked coldly, “What kind of deal?”
With a wave of her hand, a woman in white immediately appeared there.
The woman seemed to only be in her twenties. She possessed utterly alluring beauty.
But right now, her eyes were firmly shut, and her face was pale. Her presence was almost non-existence, and her vitality was extremely feeble too. She seemed to be at death’s door as if she would move on to her next life at any moment.
A green leaf hovered near her forehead, draping down with a hazy layer of green light that protected her body as well as her soul.
“She’s been injured by the Laws of Fire. I protected her soul in time, but it can’t last for much longer. Rain Abbess, the laws you’ve comprehended just happen to negate the Laws of Fire. I hope you can help her,” said Mo Tianyun.
The Rain Abbess’s gaze landed on the woman in white. She seemed to see something, and her face immediately became stern. With a wave of her hand, the unconscious woman immediately appeared before the Rain Abbess several hundred kilometers away.
The Rain Abbess did not touch the woman. Instead, her gaze was fixed on her forehead, and only a while later did she say sternly, “This is the Flame Reverend’s Laws of Fire!”
“That’s correct, it is the Flame Reverend’s Laws of Fire. Fortunately, she was only injured by the aftermath of a talisman the Flame Reverend left behind, which was the only reason why she could last until now. Otherwise, even I would not have been able to prolong her life.” Mo Tianyun sighed gently and said, “The Flame Reverend’s comprehension of the Laws of Fire is already close to perfect, so even when I protected her soul with this treasure, it can only stop the Laws of Fire momentarily without uprooting it for good. She can’t last for much longer anymore.”
“She’s only an early Chaotic Prime, so it’s a miracle that she could last until now. Unfortunately, I can’t save her.” The Rain Abbess shook her head with a cold expression. “The Flame Reverend is a supreme figure whose cultivation has reached the Ninth Heavenly Layer of Grand Prime after all. His comprehension of the laws has already reached an extremely, extremely high level. Even just a wisp of power from someone like that possessed unbelievable might. The laws I’ve comprehended do negate the Laws of Fire, but the level is still too low. I can’t help her.”
“Given your capabilities, even if you’re unable to actually help her, you should still be able to suppress the Flame Reverend’s Laws of Fire momentarily,” said Mo Tianyun.
“If I use everything I have, I can indeed buy some time for her, but that would require me to use the power of two seals. Empyrean Demon Lord, can you afford that?” the Rain Abbess said.
“Of course I can!” Mo Tianyun said with absolute confidence, “About the deal I mentioned earlier, suppressing the Flame Reverend’s power with all that you have and buying her a few days is one of the conditions.”
“Really?” The Rain Abbess became interested. “Then I’d like to see just what bargaining chip gives you so much confidence.”
Mo Tianyun smiled confidently. With a wave of his hand, he set up an energy barrier that sealed up the place before saying slowly, “A secret regarding a Xuanhuang Microcosm. I wonder if that’s sufficient?”
The Rain Abbess’ eyes narrowed suddenly in response to that. Her gaze immediately became fixed on Mo Tianyun, and she said rather eagerly, “A Xuanhuang Microcosm? You know an untouched Xuanhuang Microcosm? What level of Xuanhuan Microcosm?”
“I still don’t know what level exactly right now, but it definitely isn’t low. Rain Abbess, I can share this secret with you in exchange for your full effort in suppressing the Flame Reverend’s Laws of Fire. How’s that for a deal?”
The Rain Abbess’ eyes shone brightly, clearly in doubt. “You know exactly how precious the secret to a Xuanhuang Microcosm is. Isn’t it far too simple for you to give up such a great secret just in exchange for me to suppress the Flame Reverend’s Laws of Fire? Mo Tianyun, tell me honestly, just what do you have in mind for telling me the secret to the Xuanhuang Microcosm so easily?”
“The reason is very simple. This Xuanhuang Microcosm only opens once every ten thousand years, and it’s been less than a thousand years since it last opened.”
“I can’t wait ten thousand years, so I need to enter it prematurely. However, because the level of the Xuanhuang Microcosm is very high, it’s extremely well-hidden. I need someone with extremely great accomplishments with the Laws of Space if I want to open it prematurely,” said Mo Tianyun.
“So you came to find me?” The Rain Abbess’s eyes shone with interest as she said apathetically, “Empyrean Demon Lord, I’m not sure if you’re overestimating me, or if you’re lacking in knowledge and understanding regarding Xuanhuang Qi. Xuanhuang Qi is a great power on par with Chaotic Force. Regardless of the level of the Xuanhuang Microcosm, that’s still Xuanhuang Qi after all. Even if I possess exceptional powers, I can’t twist Xuanhuang Qi and open that place prematurely.”
“Let alone me, even if the Space-Time Elder were still around, he probably could not either.”
“You alone are indeed insufficient to open the Xuanhuang Microcosm, but what if we work together and receive assistance from a power on par with Xuanhuang Qi? That way, do you still think you can’t forcefully open the Xuanhuang Microcosm?” Mo Tianyun smiled. He smiled with great ease and composure as if he was brimming with confidence.
“A power on par with Xuanhuang Qi?” The Rain Abbess was taken aback. She soon realised something and shook her head. “You mean Jian Chen? That’s correct, Jian Chen is indeed a freak of his own since the birth of the world, where his soul has actually merged with a strand of true Chaotic Force. However, Jian Chen alone is nowhere near enough to twist the Laws of Xuanhuang. On top of that, that strand of Chaotic Force has merged with his soul. He can’t use it.”
“No, the Chaotic Force I speak of is not the strand in Jian Chen’s soul. Rain Abbess, all you need to understand is that I am confident that I can open the Xuanhuang Microcosm. Of course, that’s based on the situation where I get your cooperation. You only need to tell me whether you’ll go through with this deal or not.” Mo Tianyun smiled faintly.
The Rain Abbess’s eyes immediately shone brilliantly with that, filled with undisguised enthusiasm. “Alright, I’ll believe you. As the Empyrean Demon Lord, you shouldn’t stoop to the level of telling lies. If this succeeds, not only will our Cloudsurge Empire clean the slate with the Empyrean Demon Cult, but I’ll even give you half of everything I obtain in the Xuanhuang Microcosm too.”
“If that’s the case, then could the Rain Abbess save her first?”
