The Omniscient Deity muttered to himself. Then, he left Mount Jade.
Meanwhile, Sky was sitting in a lotus position in a simple wooden house on a huge desolate mountain in Sol. Powerful energy emitted from him.
He was cultivating in an attempt to break through to the ninth rank with all his strength.
Suddenly, his body fell to the ground, and he spat out a mouthful of blood.
He gradually got up from the ground, wiped the blood from his lips, and murmured disappointedly.
I failed again!
Why is this happening?
I’ve already reached the limits of my cultivation base and can’t improve further, so why can’t I break into the ninth rank yet?
Sky could not figure it out.
Thud, thud, thud!
There were footsteps outside his door. Sky stood up and walked out of the house.
A person was waiting outside the door.
He wore a red mask that covered most of his face, making it hard to recognize him.
“Teacher,” Sky greeted respectfully upon seeing the person at his door.
“Mhm…” The red-masked man nodded gently and said, “How’s your training going?”
“I still haven’t made it…”
Sky said with frustration, “I’ve tried countless times but haven’t managed to enter the ninth rank.”
The red-masked man took out a red pill and handed it to Sky.
Sky accepted it and inspected it for a while.
Then, he asked puzzledly. “What is this, Teacher?”
The red-masked man replied, “It’s an elixir that I’ve personally refined. It’s capable of rapidly increasing your strength and allowing you to quickly possess the strength of a ninth-ranked grandmaster. Remember, do not use it unless the situation calls for it. Although it can increase your strength, it also has a side effect, that is, your body will become weak after a certain amount of time.”
“I understand…” Sky nodded respectfully.
“Go on…” The red-masked man slightly waved his hand and said. “It’s time for you to act. After you snatch the dragon’s blood from the Blood Race, you’ll be immortal. Then, you can also find out the whereabouts of the dragon. You’ll be invincible, and the whole world will tremble under your feet. When that time comes, even I won’t be your match.”
“Understood…” Sky turned and left.
After Sky left, the masked man revealed his face.
He was none other than the Omniscient Deity.
Not only was he the Omniscient Deity, but he was also the teacher of the four powerhouses, Sky, Earth, Wind, and Thunder.
In the past, he was the person that taught the four of them and assisted Lance in becoming the king, stabilizing the political condition in Sol
Meanwhile, Tyrus was sitting on a high platform in an underground palace in the deep mountains of Mt. Thunder Pass in the Southern Plains.
Tapio was kneeling before him.
“Didn’t I ask you to follow James? Why are you back here?” Tyrus asked with dissatisfaction.
“Master…” Kneeling on the ground, Tapio said, “I’ve heard rumors spreading about the Blood Race these days, so I’ve returned to inquire what you mean to do by spreading such information?”
Tyrus replied, “I’m not responsible for it.”
“Huh?” Tapio was shocked.
“If it weren’t you that spread the word, who else could it be? Who else in this world would know about such things?”
“You don’t need to ask so many questions. Just keep an eye on James.”
“Understood!” Tapio stood up, turned around, and left.
