“My lord…” Seeing the person that approached, Jackson greeted him respectfully.
“It’s a pleasure to meet you, Omniscient Deity…” Delainey also greeted the man politely.
The person that appeared was none other than the neutral party of the ancient martial world, Jade Sect’s leader, more commonly known as the Omniscient Deity.
Each generation of Jade Sect’s leader inherits the title of Omniscient Deity.
Jackson asked, “What exactly has happened, Lord Omniscient?”
The Omniscient Deity looked at James sitting in a lotus position on the ground and sighed.
He replied, ” This is a matter only concerning the Cadens.”
Delainey looked at the Omniscient Deity. She knew the man in front of her was the leader of the Jade Sect.
Jade Sect’s intelligence network was spread all over the world.
Their intelligence channels were established thousands of years ago and have evolved into massive networks. There was nothing in the world that could get past the Jade Sect.
“Stop beating around the bush, Lord Omniscient. Just tell me…” Delainey was dying to figure out what had happened.
However, the Omniscient Deity remained silent. The information he possessed was astounding and could cause a massive uproar if it was revealed.
“Be patient. Perhaps the truth will reveal itself soon.” Omniscient Deity spoke cryptically.
Unable to retort, Delainey asked, “Then, what about Mr. Caden’s current strength?”
The Omniscient Deity replied, “He practiced the Nine Scriptures of Ordeals and is an unrivaled man. He may not be invincible as he is currently, but there aren’t many people in Sol who can stand against him.”
“What’s the Nine Scriptures of Ordeals? Delainey was puzzled at the unfamiliar term.
She had read about almost every martial art that existed in the world. Even if she had not read about it, she was sure she would hear about it from somewhere. However, the Nine Scriptures of Ordeals was a foreign term to her.
The Omniscient Deity said, “The story of the Nine Scriptures of Ordeals is a long one, dating back a thousand years ago.”
He began to speak of events that transpired a thousand years ago. He talked about Polaris and the grudge between him and the Prince of Orchid Mountain.
After hearing the stories, Delainey gasped in realization.
“What an amazing martial art technique.”
“Haha!” The Omniscient Deity chuckled and said, ” The world’s mysteries are far beyond your ability to comprehend them. The calamity a thousand years ago will repeat itself once more. The slaughtering of the Spirit Turtle in the Snow Cavern marked the beginning of chaos.”
“The calamity a thousand years ago?” Even Jackson was puzzled and asked, “What catastrophe?”
The Omniscient Deity replied, “Initially, I thought the calamity was brought upon us because of the Spirit Turtle’s blood. However, I had a feeling that there was more to it. I specifically looked into ancient books and learned a lot in that period. I discovered some secrets after researching the Prince of Orchid Mountain, the Cadens, and the Blood Race…”
“The beginning of the calamity started with the Spirit Turtle, and this also marked the start of Thea’s misfortune… Apart from the Spirit Turtle, there is also a dragon, phoenix, and kylin. The Four Mythical Beasts are comprised of these four mythical creatures, and each of them possesses tremendous strength. It’s the will of the heavens and a fate we are bound to.”
The Omniscient Deity’s words were esoteric. Even Mount Thunder Sect’s leader, Jackson, could not comprehend his words.
Delainey was even more confused.
After a while, The Omniscient Deity continued, “If there is a start to a calamity, there must also be a person to put an end to it… The person that will resolve Thea’s tribulation is James. The person destined to end the other three catastrophes has not yet appeared. What’s certain is the future is full of various possibilities and as such, is unpredictable. Everything is up to the inner workings of fate.”
Jackson could not help asking, “I know of the Spirit Turtle, but what do you mean when you mention the other beasts?”
The Omniscient Deity briefly explained the origins of the dragon, phoenix, and kylin.
The powerhouses who slaughtered the dragon were led by the Blood Race more than a thousand years ago.
The men who slaughtered the phoenix were Finnegan and King Quavon’s subordinates.
As for the people who slaughtered the kylin, it was his ancestors of the Jade Sect.
In the annals of history, the slaying of the phoenix happened first, taking place more than 2300 years ago.
The slaughtering of the kylin subsequently happened 1800 years ago, while the dragon was slain the third and the event dated back about 1300 years ago.
And, the Spirit Turtle was the last to be killed and it happened exactly 1000 years ago.
