Looking at the glimpse of panic, worries and fear in Xiao Wu’s eyes, Tang San smiled:
“Silly girl, don’t prompt like that, listen to me! I said we just have to separate for a very short time.”
“But, ge, don’t you need us if you want to become the Sea God? I need to go with you and complete the Sea God’s Challenges!”
Tang San said, smiling:
“Of course. Not only you, but Dai Mubai and everyone have to go too. Poselsi said that before, without you guys, I can’t become the Sea God. I said we would be separated for a short time because I want to go to the Star Dou Forest again, then we will go to the Sea God Island. My flying speed is faster than others’. If you all go with me to the Star Dou Forest and then the Sea God Island, it will take more time. It would be better if you leave for the seashore first, waiting for me there, and ask Little Bai’s fellows to gather the Great White Shark Devil Souls. Wait until I come back from the Star Dou Forest, I need to collect all the spirit rings for the Clear Sky Hammer then I will gather with you. It would save more time. The time we are apart is not more than ten days.”
Listening to Tang San’s explanation, Xiao Wu felt relief, she slightly punched Tang San’s chest:
“Ah, you’re bad. You scare me.”
Tang San smiled cheerily:
“It wasn’t me! I didn’t know you would overreact like that, you didn’t wait for me to finish.”
Xiao Wu pouted, didn’t want to let it go, continue to pat on Tang San’s shoulders. Looking at her lovely behaviour, Tang San felt his love was getting deeper, kissing her delicate lips.
They didn’t stay any longer. After bidding farewells to his parents, Grandmaster and Xue Beng, Tang San and the Shrek Seven Devils split into two directions. They left the Heaven Dou Empire’s barrack inaudibly under the cover of darkness . This was Xue Beng’s idea. Because Tang San was an important symbol in their soldiers’ hearts now, if they had known he was leaving, it could have affected their fighting spirit. Tang San should leave quietly. The information was carefully blocked; on one hand, it wouldn’t have an impact on the soldiers, on the other hand, they didn’t want the Spirit Empire to get the hint.
While Tang San and his people were leaving the base to complete his final step to becoming the Sea God, at Spirit Empire – Spirit City, in the Elders Hall, there was another person who was facing the last moment of her challenge.
Spirit City. Elders Hall
Qian Ren Xue was standing quietly in the central of the Elders Hall, her body was covered with a beautiful gold nimbus. There was a big statue of a six-winged angel in front of her.
There was something different, she wasn’t the one who had to worship this Angel statue anymore. Now, that statue and she had become central of the great hall.
“Are you ready?”
A calm voice echoed.
Qian Ren Xue slowly nodded. There was a pure yellow light in her eyes, furiously projecting abundant divine light.
“Yes, I am well prepared.” Qian Ren Xue’s voice was even colder and more distant, looked like it wasn’t sounded from a human’s mouth.
Another shadow deliberately stepped out from behind the divine statue. A senile voice with a muscular, imposing body gradually appeared under the light.
“Today is the reason for my existence. I’ve been waiting for a hundred year just for this day. Follow me!”
The one who was stepping out from behind the statue was the Spirit Empire’s Great Consecrator, one of the Great Three Peerless Douluos, Angel Douluo Qian Dao Liu.
Concurrently, light blasted behind Qian Dao Liu, gold light covered his entire body, nine spirit rings were arranged neatly on his body, three pairs of pure white wings appeared at the same time. This was his supreme max level spirit, Six-winged Angel.
Besides those pairs of wings, Qian Dao Liu’s body was covered with a yellow light, but this light still lacked something compared to Qian Ren Xue’s halo. Thus, even though he had released his spirit, he couldn’t replace Qian Ren Xue to become the central of the Elders Hall together with the Angel statue.
A lozenge yellow gem emerged from his forehead. Just in a blink, he stood in front of the Angel statue, and no one knew how he did that. A strange gold light from the lozenge gem on his forehead projected, shining on the glabella of the Angel statue.
Simultaneously, there was a vortex appeared on the Angel statue’s glabella. It seemed like the whole statue was shivering.
Seeing this, a hint of surprise flashed in Qian Ren Xue’s gold eyes. Apparently, she just saw this for the first time.
“Child, follow me.”
Qian Dao Liu turned, waving to Qian Ren Xue and suddenly increased his speed, his body plunging toward the gigantic Angel statue.
Qian Ren Xue didn’t release her spirit, but her body just slightly flew up and closely follow Qian Dao Liu, heading to the Angel statue.
Something incredibly strange happened. When Qian Dao Liu stormed to the Angel statue, he didn’t wallop it, but it was like he was colliding with a rippling layer, a light flashed then he disappeared.
The same thing happened to Qian Ren Xue, she closely followed Qian Dao Liu and disappeared into the Angel statue.
The vortex at the glabella of the statue slowly faded and disappeared together with the vague feeling. After the gold light was flashing, everything became normal, but Qian Dao Liu and Qian Ren Xue, the grandfather and granddaughter, had disappeared in the gold light.
Her body was covered with gold light, Qian Ren Xue recognised that she had entered an unusual world. The very first feeling she had was a warm embracing her whole body. Everything surrounded her seemed to be unreal. Gold rippling waves continuously blinked. It was as she was travelling through a tunnel made from illusionary gold light.
Qian Dao Liu led Qian Ren Xue flying forward. After a really long time, like a century had passed by, the surroundings suddenly changed. The feeling of hallucination disappeared, her feeling of real objects turned back again.
Qian Ren Xue was astounded seeing herself and grandfather were in a great hall. When she was here, she immediately saw this strange hall.
There was an endless starry sky in the surrounding, and she was in this hall like she was floating aimlessly in such night sky.
It was a hexagonal hall with six massive gold pillars supporting the ceiling. There was no wall, only void around them. The ground, the ceiling and the six gold pillars had numerous same bizarre patterns carved on them. These patterns were designed from Angel’s feather forms.
An Angel statue stood in the central of the great hall, it was identical to the giant one in the Elders Hall. However, it was just three tchi tall, and its colour wasn’t gold but a blur shade of grey. Six wings were spreading on its back that looked vivacious. There was a sword pierced in the ground in front of the Statue.
“Grandfather, where are we?”
Entering this peculiar world, Qian Ren Xue’s voice became more “human”.
A weird smiled spread on Qian Dao Liu’s face:
“This is the Angel Divine Hall, where Angels impart its legacy. Child, come here.”
He was waving his hand to Qian Ren Xue while saying.
Qian Dao Liu led Qian Ren Xue to the Angel statue, standing in front of it. Qian Dao Liu pulled her hand, a lozenge gold gem appeared on her forehead.
“You will make this place more splendid, and the Angel will reappear in the mortal world. This is where you will complete your final challenge of the Angel’s Nine Challenges. Also, this is where you officially inherit the Angelic God, entering the God level. Douluo Continent hasn’t had a God in so many years. You will finally be the strongest spirit master of the continent. You will lead the Spirit Empire to the peak of glory.”
When Qian Dao Liu finished, Qian Ren Xue’s eyes lit up with a furious mien, a figure suddenly appeared in her mind. The one who had defeated her.
Qian Ren Xue would never forget the man who had defeated her. His capacity, his wisdom forced her to consider him as her biggest opponent.
“Tang San, I will become the Angelic God, what about you? Soon you will see the huge difference between you and me. I will definitely come after you. I will solve our matter myself. When we meet again, you will have only two choices: being killed or submitting. Besides my grandfather, you are the only man I don’t hate. I hope you won’t fail me.”
Qian Dao Liu’s voice woke Qian Ren Xue from her deep thought.
“Grandpa, what should I do?”
Qian Ren Xue’s eyes quickly became determined. She didn’t know why whenever she thought about Tang San, her mind became intense. The first time she saw Tang San was when Ning Feng Zhi introduced them. The last time she saw him, he was her opponent. She didn’t know why she didn’t have any resentment when Tang Sand had destroyed the flourish she had been trying to hide in Heaven Dou Empire for dozens of years. She didn’t hate, but in contrast, she admired him. In her mind, she wanted to conquer the only man she had admired instead of killing him.
“Use your blood!”
Qian Dao Liu pointed to the round translucent gem inlaid on the handle of the dark grey sword in front of the Angel statue.
Qian Ren Xue inhaled a deep breath, she knew the last moment had come. Her right hand stretched out, covering the gem. Just in a blink, the nail on her thumb flicked and cut her middle finger. A strange colour blood from the cut by the Angelic spirit power splashed on the gem on that sword’s handle.
Qian Ren Xue’s blood looked bizarre. It wasn’t red like human blood, but it was a mix of pink and dim gold. There was a light fragrance emitted from her blood.
Suddenly, the cut on Qian Ren Xue’s middle finger was stuck on that pellucid gem by a strange suction force. The shining gem now was like a bloodsucking demon, wildly devouring Qian Ren Xue’s blood. Qian Ren Xue couldn’t help but tremble hard bleeding like that.
Spirit rings appeared one by one on Qian Ren Xue’s body. BOOM. Six giant bird wings appeared on her back, stretching out in the air.
Qian Dao Liu worriedly stood aside, observing everything.
The more blood Qian Ren Xue had shedded, the shinier the gem on the sword’s handle was. At first, the gem glowed with dim gold color just like Qian Ren Xue’s blood, later on, the pink halo gradually disappeared, replaced with a pure gold color. The gold light was moving from the gem downward, the body of the sword absorbed those gold light drops one by one.
The feeble feeling appeared in Qian Ren Xue. Still, she determinedly maintained her action. She even urged her spirit power to force the blood bled faster.
Gradually, Qian Ren Xue found out that her body couldn’t move. The feeble feeling became more intensive while the sword in front of her started to project dazzling gold light. Torrential gold light covered the whole Angel Hall. All patterns carved on any surface of the Angel Hall began to become livelier. The dim light looked like it was moving, at the same time, its colour became darker.
Qian Ren Xue smiled, light filled his eyes, muttering:
“I’ve been waiting so long for this moment. Tang Chen, eventually, I’m still better than you. Even though I can’t break through level one hundred and become a god, but my descendant can do that. That’s how I defeat you. Well, I don’t know whether you are still alive. If you are alive, I wonder what face would you be making, knowing my granddaughter will become a God. Ha ha, ha ha ha ha…..”
It seemed Qian Dao Liu had to take lots of efforts to step towards the grey Angel statue, at that time, the colour of the sword continuously changed to gold.
The heat in his eyes became tender, his gaze focused on Qian Ren Xue.
“Child! This is your last challenge, also your grandpa last challenge. No matter how much pain you are enduring, you must succeed. Later, if you meet a peerless douluo named Tang Chen. You must defeat him for me. He is my lifetime nemesis!”
“Grandpa, what do you want to do?”
Qian Ren Xue hardly opened her mouth to yell, a bursting insecure feeling suddenly rose in her heart. It was because of Qian Dao Liu’s tender and calm eyes.
Qian Dao Liu smiled:
“Silly child, you have to understand that this is my intrinsic destiny. Being the guardian of the Angelic God, my existence is for the inheritance of the Angelic God. Without me, you can’t complete the final step. Don’t be mournful. Right now, you can’t move, you can’t stop me. Remember my words, lead the Spirit Empire to the peak of glory, and if you meet Tang Chen, defeat him for me.”
After he had finished, a loud sound echoed, gold flame burst furiously on Qian Dao Liu’s body. The flame didn’t bring any heat, but it lit up the whole hall. Formerly, the gold light was dim, now it became darker and denser. Now, Qian Dao Liu could replace the Angel statue and become the dazzling central of the hall.
Qian Ren Xue was trying hard to move and scream. But just like Qian Dao Liu said, she couldn’t move an inch, her entire body was oppressed by the sword. She had no way to move.
Qian Dao Liu’s whole body turned into gold, he had lit up the gold flame, which was burning his spirit power, his body, his soul and all of his belongings. The pure angelic flame was devouring him while the Angel statue behind him was absorbing the energy of the bursting flame.
“Little Xue, listen to me. There’s something I have hidden from you. Your mother didn’t treat you well, she wanted to abandon you when you were young. It wasn’t her fault, though. However, it’s because of you I didn’t kill her. Your father didn’t die by the Clear Sky Douluo Tang Hao. Tang Hao was only severely wounded him. The one who killed your father was your mother, Bibi Dong!”
Qian Ren Xue was dumbstruck looking at her grandfather, she even forgot the gold flame which was burning on his body.
Qian Dao Liu sighed:
“What happened had happened. I know everything from root to top. Bibi Dong is a genius. Your father wanted to hold her, he did some evil tricks. Nobody ever thought that she was subtle for so many years. At that time, I thought that since you already didn’t have your father, I didn’t want you to lose your mother also. After you become the Angelic God, how you want to treat her, you can consider.
“There’s one thing I want to remind you. If there’s someone on this continent could become a god, it’s your mother. Her heart has been devoured by the Devils. Once she could break through, she would become the Asura God, the opposite of your Angelic God. But you are her daughter, deep inside she still loves you. Take back the control over the Spirit Empire, but what you want to do to Bibi Dong, you should decide yourself. Grandpa suggests that you shouldn’t be hard to her. If you and she could unite, wiping the continent would be very simple.”
“It’s her who killed my father, she killed my father?”
Qian Ren Xue blankly stood there.
Qian Dao Liu’s voice became interrupted. When Qian Ren Xue recognised the situation, Qian Dao Liu’s body standing in front of her had been gradually devouring by the gold flame. The last thing she could see was his affectionate eyes looking at her.
Qian Ren Xue screamed, struggling harder. Suddenly, the strange suction force from her hand transferred from the gem to the handle. Swoosh. She forcefully drew the sword, that was pierced in the ground in front of the Angel statue, without hesitation.
Gold light burst out. The whole Angel Hall turned into a dazzling gold light just like a shining sun, lit up the night sky and shone on the whole surroundings, also devouring Qian Ren Xue’s body.
Inside the Angel Hall, all patterns burst into gold flame. Qian Ren Xue felt her body could change its location instantly with the slightest movement. The grey Angel statue completely turned into gold, both hands stretched out embracing her body.
At that moment, when Qian Ren Xue felt something merged to her body, the lozenge gem on her forehead blinked. The enormous surging energy exploded constantly. Her heart didn’t feel hurt anymore because everything in front of her eyes had turned into gold, her soul also changed to gold, she lost the ability to think temporarily.
A solemn voice echoed from all direction, all light beams inside the Angel Hall halted for a while.
In the hall, the gold light suddenly darkened, the Angel statue had disappeared, left only Qian Ren Xue. On her back, three pairs of bird wings had completely turned into a gold color, spreading wide. Both of her eyes were closed, her long golden hair was floating. Her right hand rose the sword she just hauled from the ground, gold flame emitted furiously from her body.
From the tip of the sword, feather patterns started to spread out downward, covering the entire sword, then spreading to Qian Ren Xue’s body. The patterned spread over her face and body. Ding. A low sound echoed, all clothes disappeared, revealing the perfect contours of her body.
That strange pattern was like clothes covered Qian Ren Xue, gradually spread downward and hid her inside. The peculiar gold light constantly blinked with dazzling beams.
Her consciousness recovered. Eventually, her soul awakened in the feelings of sorrow. Qian Ren Xue could only feel her body was numb and it was like hundred thousand ants were biting her at the same time.
You could endure the pain, but the feeling of having pins and needles on the whole body was terrifying. That irritated feeling dipped Qian Ren Xue in sorrow, making her almost lost her ability to think. This feeling of having pins and needles came out from her bone, forced her to endure the extreme grief.
She wanted to scream, but she couldn’t make a sound. She wanted to walk, but she couldn’t move. Those feeling she had never been through, put her in an intensively miserable state. Her spirit could collapse at any time.
At this moment, basically, she didn’t have the ability to think about what Qian Dao Liu had told her. She couldn’t even exude the sorrow of losing her grandfather due to her divine inheritance. But she understood one thing, once her soul couldn’t accept this pain, she would definitely collapse. Her inheritance process would be ruined then she would turn into ash in this Angel Hall.
When Qian Ren Xue’s consciousness became vague, suddenly, a noble shadow wearing a long gown appeared in her soul. This was Bibi Dong.
Bibi Dong was using her noble but icy, distant eyes to scrutinise her, her voice echoed from deeply inside Qian Ren Xue’s soul:
“Don’t you want to defeat me? Don’t you hate me? I’m waiting for you. I killed Qian Xunji. If you want to take revenge for him, come find me!”
Qian Ren Xue’s spirit was shaken violently, she didn’t even mind the extreme tingling feeling.
“Bibi Dong, I hate you! I hate you! You are not worthy of being my mother. But I won’t kill you, I will take all the power you ever wanted to show you what sorrow is!”
Bibi Dong’s shadow in front of her eyes faded and disappeared in the void. Qian Ren Xue recognised the disgustingness filled in Bibi Dong’s eyes.
Her soul energy suddenly enhanced, her spirit became stronger. The soul, which has almost collapsed, now got consolidated again, violently prevented the pain from the tingling feelings.
Time passing by second by second, minute by minute, the pain that her body was endured become more intensive. The spirit she was struggling to gather was shattered. Her soul was unstable again.
No! I have to be patient. Deep inside, Qian Ren Xue was screeching crazily. But the constantly increasing pain made her soul so fragile, just like a lamp under the strong wind blow.
Her soul became illusionary, at this time, another dim shadow appeared in her mind.
“Child, hold on, you must be persistent. This is the chance that I have exchanged my life for you!”
This time the shadow was Qian Dao Liu. In the furiously burning gold flame, his eyes were full of desire and encouragement. It was constantly pushing Qian Ren Xue’s soul, made the scattered soul concentrated again.
“Grandpa, I will not let it go. I will succeed. You can ease your mind. I will become the strongest spirit master to fulfil your wishes. Grandpa, give me strength to stand still before this pain.”
Qian Ren Xue’s body was shaking violently inside the Angel Hall. After each time, the gold pattern on her body became more furious. Her body, under cover of gold light and those patterns, constantly changed.
Qian Ren Xue was over thirty years old, but now she became younger, like eighteen or nineteen. Her body was beautifully developed. Delicate waist, plump breasts, firm and round bottom linked to the slender thighs. Her splendid figure under the decoration of the gold pattern became dreamy.
The gold gem on her forehead was smashed, but she didn’t notice when. A gold mark was imprinted on her forehead. This mark had a shape of a six-winged angel, just like the Angel statue had been shrunk and inlaid on her forehead.
The mark had appeared when Qian Ren Xue’s soul was shaken the first time, and her body’s changes had happened at the second time she had almost lost her mind.
Currently, Qian Ren Xue became something divine. Gold flame constantly projected from her body, especially the six wings on her back were like they were cast from the gold flame, each time they slightly flapped, they created a aura of twisted gold light.
Suddenly, Qian Ren Xue screeched, realising the irritated tingling feeling was getting several times stronger had struck her feeble soul again.
From outside of her body, from her body and from nothingness, there were six golden bones appeared around her body together with the explosion of the gold fog.
Gold patterns on Qian Ren Xue’s body immediately detached, revealing her extremely delicate soft body. All those patterns, which were turned into gold beams, were being absorbed by the six strange bones.
Yes, those six bones were the famous six bones, the Spirit Empire’s treasures which guarded its shrine, the Angelic Armament. Before Qian Ren Xue came here, she had absorbed five bones, there was only one bone she didn’t dare to absorb. During this inheritance process, whether it was absorbed or not, all six spirit bones appeared near her body.
Each spirit bone had bizarrely changed when the gold patterns infiltrated it. The spirit bones weren’t in the form of a skeleton but looked like they were melting together with the gold patterns, turning into a liquid form just like water. They formed a giant sphere of gold liquid floating around three tchi in front of Qian Ren Xue.
Qian Ren Xue was struggling hard to hold it, but the sudden increase in pain made her almost collapse. However, the image of her grandfather filled her mind, together with the shaking feeling from his sacrifice, encouraging and stimulating her soul constantly to endure the situation.
But how long could she hold it for?
Six Angelic Armament spirit bones, with the condensed gold pattern, had formed a gold light sphere, dashing like shooting star directly towards Qian Ren Xue’s body. Just in a blink, all the liquid lingered on her splendid contours flowing down rapidly and covering her whole body.
At that moment, the endless extreme irritated pain suddenly struck Qian Ren Xue’s soul. The cracking sound reverberated in her soul.
The doubled miserable feeling made Qian Ren Xue’s resilient spirit tremble, she couldn’t hold it anymore.
Qian Ren Xue felt the tear in her soul. Moreover, this tear was expanding rapidly. It seemed to be able to knock down people just in a moment.
“So it will end like this? I can’t be the Angelic God?”
She didn’t want to be like that, being a fragile ant. No, I don’t want to fail like that.
“I must succeed, I must succeed…”
Qian Ren Xue wildly screamed inside, but she couldn’t do anything to prevent her soul from being smashed. Then, in this critical moment of extreme danger, the third shadow appeared in her soul.
Qian Ren Xue was blankly dull. When Bibi Dong and Qian Dao Liu’s shadows appeared, they helped her create two anchorages to hold on so she could get over the tough gates. She understood that even her hatred for Bibi Dong was deep. Still, grandfather and mother took important positions in her heart. But besides them, is there someone who could twine in my heart and create an anchorage too? Who is this third shadow? Who is more important to me than grandpa and Bibi Dong?
The third shadow in her mind became clearer. It was a man, a very young man.
His long blue hair was floating behind him. Everything could be seen in his crystal clear deep blue eyes, which were full of the light of wisdom. His figure was slender and elegant. There was a harp floating silently in front of him.
He slowly rose his hands. The slender fingers touched the strings. Ding dong ding dong. A pure, perfect melody resounded, infiltrating Qian Ren Xue just like the cracking sound of her soul.
It’s him, why it is him? Qian Ren Xue’s heart was being stirred. She understood that what appeared later was more important. This was why she wasn’t sure who would appear after Qian Dao Liu because she thought that in her heart, her grandfather was the most important person.
But now she understood something. Long, long time ago, there was another person who had stepped inside her heart, carved his deepest impression there. Now, he appeared as the third anchorage helping me overcome the god’s challenges.
Qian Ren Xue wanted to cry. Her soul was so fragile now, she only wanted to let everything go. But the echoing melody was constantly touching her heart, got into it and helped her erase the cracks on her soul.
That man still kept a faint smile on his face, exquisite and noble. He continued to play the harp, the melody was like it was telling his stories.
A glimpse flashed. Qian Ren Xue appeared in her soul, her naked body walking toward the man who was still playing the harp. Staying deep inside her soul was her authentic soul, this authentic soul was attracted and was dragged out by this man. At this moment, all the irritated tingling feeling seemed to cease. Tears condensed with her authentic soul were rolling down.
Her succulent red lips parted, she muffled:
“Tang San, why it is you…?
 Around 1 meter = ~ 40 inches
