Chapter 981: The truth: Becoming enemies
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
At the far north, a young man dressed in white with a lightsaber charged out from the void. This battle that threatened the entire planet was forced to stop.
Everyone looked over in shock.
One needs to know that this is a battle for the world!
The monstrous World Force already destroyed the extreme north. This young man actually stopped it with a slash? Looking at this young man, he was obviously a human!
A group of beasts also had their eyes open wide.
This man has a clear beast aura that couldn’t be hidden at all. This was the real inheritance from a strong beast, a senior!
However, the beasts quickly recognized him.
This was Heavenly Emperor Mingguang’s disciple!
Someone had seen him at Scarlet Forest before, the true successor of the Heavenly Emperor!
He’s here to help the beasts?
“Sorry.” That young man stood upright, “Everyone, my master invites you all for a trip.”
Everyone was stunned.
Is this some joke? Who dares to go before this person’s identity is clarified?
Whether the humans or the beasts would have additional espers would create a devastating blow to the other party!
As for Su Hao, who was watching this scene, his mind nearly stopped working.
Li Tiantian was a bit shocked by Su Hao’s reaction, “Two major suppression points collapsed at the same time. After humans and beasts fell into the war, they had to resort to stopping the fight. Isn’t this what you calculated from the start?”
Yes, Su Hao expected all of this.
This wasn’t a joke.
What was the strength of a half-step strongest esper? What about a group of them then?
This planet would never be able to bear it!
Thus, negotiations would be the final result. After one party had the upper hand, an unfair, humiliating treaty would likely take shape.
The purpose of this war wasn’t to eliminate!
It was to create advantages for the negotiation. Although human beings are weak, they wouldn’t fall behind that much. Thus, in the end, mankind wouldn’t lose too much in this negotiation.
This was all within Su Hao’s considerations.
Especially, looking at that familiar face and strong beast aura around that figure, Su Hao gritted his teeth. Why do you want to tease me?
Why is he here?
“Everyone, let me introduce myself.” That young man bowed slightly, revealing his white teeth.
“I am Chen Yifeng.”
“Disciple of Heavenly Emperor Mingguang.”
Everyone gasped when the young man revealed his identity.
Whether they were humans or beasts, everyone recalled it. Although they weren’t very familiar with him, they vaguely remembered that there seemed to be such a person among the geniuses of the younger generation of mankind.
It turned out to be him!
So, he’s a human?
However, the second half of his sentence nearly made everyone break their teeth. Disciple of Heavenly Emperor Mingguang? Hold on, what did he say… It seems like…
Everyone was shocked.
Isn’t that equivalent to the strongest esper? A heavenly emperor is actually alive?
What is this hell?
What was actually happening here?
Everyone’s thoughts couldn’t catch up. Hold on, Chen Yifeng seemed to be a human, but he worshiped a beast as his teacher. Then, a Heavenly Emperor appeared, and he seemed to be real…
The amount of information was so huge that it took everyone a long time to sort it out.
“If a Heavenly Emperor exists, will there even be a place for humans like me?” Wang Ru asked, “After conspiring for twenty years, you guys only managed to break this state. If the Heavenly Emperor is here, why wait till now? Chen Yifeng, have you jumped to the beast’s side?”
Everyone nodded one after another.
“Senior.” Chen Yifeng said with a smile, “My master has never participated in a war. Not in the past or even now. Since you all can’t continue this fight anymore, why don’t we sit down and have a talk about it?”
Sit down and have a talk?
The humans and beasts looked at each other in dismay.
Is it possible?
Humans and beasts?
A ray of light suddenly appeared out of thin air.
Heavenly Emperor Mingguang’s phantom appeared. With the aura of a Heavenly Emperor leaking out, everyone was horrified. Heavenly Emperor Mingguang, this was a true heavenly emperor’s aura!
Heavenly Emperor is on equal footing to the strongest esper!
“It’s about the future of both mankind and beasts. I can only invite you to come here.” Heavenly Emperor Mingguang sounded very humble.
Everyone went silent.
Things had escalated to this state, is there even any room for them to resist?
In Kingdom of Heaven, Ping Yang and the others finally understood why Su Hao reacted that way earlier.
“He’s Chen Yifeng, your brother-in-law?” Ping Yang marveled, rejoicing in Su Hao’s disaster. It seemed like he had heard something he liked. However, his excitement didn’t last long. When Heavenly Emperor Mingguang appeared…
His face turned green.
“You know him?” Su Hao turned his head quickly.
“En.” Ping Yang said in a serious tone, “Didn’t I spend quite some time in the beast domain? I originally ran by many places to catch emperor-ranked beasts and naturally heard the legend of Heavenly Emperor Mingguang. There were many rumors, but there was a part that had something to do with your dad. Unexpectedly, he’s actually still alive!”
Ping Yang obviously knew the horror of Heavenly Emperor Mingguang.
“Speak.” Su Hao’s eyes lit up.
He felt that he had caught on something.
“I won’t say anything regarding matters on the human side. You are also aware that your dad, Su Tiancheng, was the leader of the first generation espers. The first peerless strong esper of mankind was unmatched! This was the case for mankind, and the same goes to the beasts too! That person is Heavenly Emperor Mingguang!”
“Humans, Su Tiancheng, beasts, Heavenly Emperor Mingguang!”
“In the early stage of the chaotic era, the origin energy was ten times more than now. Coupled with the blessings of being first generation espers, both of them reached the goal in one year, which might not even be able to be achieved in a decade currently.”
Su Hao nodded slightly.
He knew this point clearly.
He spent five years from nothing to the current peak! As for his father, when the energy was ten times more concentrated than now, under the special characteristics of the first generation espers, the road his father traveled in a year far exceeded what he did in five years! Becoming a peerless powerhouse in one year is a legend of that era.
It was undeniable!
“However, as far as I know, they were both friends.” Ping Yang spat out an explosive statement.
“Friends?!” Su Hao was shocked.
“En, they both desire the destruction of the world, and they are both peerlessly strong. Naturally they would come together. However, when they were about to succeed, no one expected that… Su Tiancheng gave up! He suddenly gave everything up.”
“As for the later parts, I’m not sure.”
Ping Yang scratched his head, “After all, it was coming from the beasts, they did not have much understanding of mankind. However, Heavenly Emperor Mingguang had long become the legend of the beasts.”
“It turned out to be this?” Su Hao suppressed the horror in his heart.
Is this true?
That’s very likely!
Ping Yang wasn’t sure, but he was very clear!
There is a problem with this world.
He knew that Su Tiancheng knew, Heavenly Emperor Mingguang knew. The only ones who knew about this and not killed by the law enforcers were three of them.
Thus, Su Tiancheng and Heavenly Emperor Mingguang formed a team to destroy the world!
But why would he give up later?
Su Hao pondered for a moment. His hand shook out of sudden as he thought of something.
“It was for Mother?” Su Hao smiled bitterly.
Did he give up everything because of Su Hao’s mother?
Su Hao wasn’t clear.
However, this was the closest to the truth among all his deductions. If he were to count Aunty Su Wan’s hatred to his mother, everything seemed clearer. Perhaps it was really because of his mother that Su Tiancheng gave up everything, which was why Aunt Su Wan hated her.
Was this the truth back then?
Su Hao took a long breath.
The biggest problem was Heavenly Emperor Mingguang!
How much had they sacrificed back then?
Su Tiancheng retired, and that actually made Su Wan indignant. What about Heavenly Emperor Mingguang then? For both to turn against each other, that was needless to say! Thus, why didn’t Heavenly Emperor Mingguang take action?
No, something was still amiss.
With the existence of Heavenly Emperor Mingguang, his father should be aware that even if he retired, Heavenly Emperor Mingguang would continue to complete the demise. By then, what about his wife?
Wouldn’t they die together?
Thus, in order to avoid the world being destroyed and protecting his family at the same time, Su Hao suddenly had a feeling that both attacked each other.
They turned against each other!
Su Hao tried to connect the existing clues.
After giving up on world destruction, his father and Heavenly Emperor Mingguang started a fight. After the battle, both disappeared collectively. Then by coincidence, his father met with the law enforcers, and he was finally taken away thanks to his heavy injuries. Then, Heavenly Emperor Mingguang also vanished and cultivated to cure his serious injuries until now.
Why didn’t he make a move himself then?
He didn’t want to do so?
“It shouldn’t be possible.” Su Hao’s gaze was serious, “Because of the injury or some kind of restrictions or rules, Heavenly Emperor Mingguang couldn’t make his own move. In fact, he couldn’t even leave the beast realm.”
The truth he deduced wouldn’t be 100% correct, but part of them would be right, which was enough for him to make a judgement. At least one thing was certain.
Heavenly Emperor Mingguang, he still didn’t give up on destroying the world!
An ambitious Heavenly Emperor?
There was no doubt that all humans and beasts would be sold out by him in the end.
“I will never let everyone go over there.” Su Hao coldly said.
Going out now to expose Heavenly Emperor Mingguang would be useless. It was pointless for them to continue this fight. What Heavenly Emperor Mingguang proposed was a temporary peace between mankind and beasts that could be accepted. Heavenly Emperor Mingguang was too powerful. Only by understanding his true purpose step by step could Su Hao gain a glimmer of hope!
Not to mention…
He was only one step away from entering the level three world realm.
What he needed was time!
“What to do now?” Su Hao frowned. Looking at Chen Yifeng, who was on the battlefield, he suddenly smiled.
Right now, the phantom of Heavenly Emperor Mingguang vanished.
Chen Yifeng, representing Heavenly Emperor Mingguang, would lead humans and beasts to have a discussion. When everyone was about to leave, a light blue figure stood in front of them.
Chen Yifeng’s face instantly became helpless.
“Brother.” Chen Yiran smiled sweetly.
Chen Yifeng looked at Su Hao fiercely.
“For you.” Chen Yiran threw out a box of virtual devices.
Everyone was stunned.
“Brother, look. To prevent humans from fighting the beasts, don’t you think it’s more reliable to use virtual devices for the meeting?” Chen Yiran said with a smile.
Everyone then came to a realization. Yeah, with a virtual device, why the need to take a personal risk? Having such a thought, everyone gave up their plan to go in person. Chen Yifeng stared at Su Hao hatefully. Then, when he looked at his brightly smiling younger sister, he could only agree to this idea.
“Chen Yifeng is clueless.” Su Hao made a judgement. Otherwise, he would never compromise.
Heavenly Emperor Mingguang fooled him?
Otherwise, with Chen Yifeng’s temperament, how would he betray mankind?
Su Hao was more concerned about another point. Heavenly Emperor Mingguang had already fallen to a state when he had to trick a human. In other words, his current strength still hadn’t recovered to his peak yet!
“Things are getting more and more interesting.”
Su Hao finally revealed a smile on his face.
