Thea made a quick recovery. Within half a day, she regained her memory and strength. Currently, her rank was at the peak of the Skyward Stairway’s Sixth Stair.
Aside from that, there was still some energy from the blood in her body that she had not yet absorbed.
She had only absorbed the energy from the Spirit Turtle’s blood and some of the energy from the blood given to her by the Omniscient Deity.
Only about a tenth of the energy from the blood provided by the Omniscient Deity was absorbed by her. If she absorbed the rest of them, her strength would definitely reach the Skyward Stairway’s Ninth Stair.
Meanwhile, in Cansington…
At a certain villa…
Thomas was sitting on a sofa, gently massaging his temples.
A man walked over and knelt on the ground.
“Master, there’ve been reports of a terrifying aura emanating from the Callahan family’s residence…”
“Oh? The Callahan family?” Thomas immediately came out of his trance and said, “Hmm, alright. I understand. I’ll go take a look myself.”
Thomas left and headed to the Callahans’ villa.
When he arrived at the villa, Thea had already recovered her strength. She remembered everything that had happened, including the fact that the person who had given her the blood was the Omniscient Deity.
What kind of blood is this?
Now, Thea was a little puzzled.
What’s the Omniscient Deity’s intention?
He first led me to Mount Wunderton, and then, to help me regain my strength and my memory, he gave me this strange blood. What is he trying to accomplish?
Thea could not figure it out. Then, she sensed there was a person on the balcony.
She quickly walked outside. When she saw the visitor, she called out respectfully, “Sir Caden.”
“Hmm, you?” With a hint of surprise on his face, Thomas looked at Thea. “Y-You got your memory back?”
“Y-Yeah…” Thea nodded.
She told him about the incident involving the Omniscient Deity’s gift of blood.
“I drank the blood the Omniscient Deity had given me, and my strength and memory returned.”
Thomas furrowed his brow. “The Omniscient Deity again. What’s he trying to do?”
Thea said, “I have no idea what he’s up to either. By the way, Sir Caden, what brought you to see me?”
Thomas regained his composure and said, “I’d just heard from a subordinate that the Callahans’ villa was emitting a terrifying aura, so I came to investigate. So, it was you trying to regain your strength. Oh, right. Previously, when James traveled abroad, he obtained the dragon’s blood, and I’ve always carried it with me. Since your strength has returned, I’ll give it to you…”
While he was saying this, Thomas took out the dragon’s blood that the Blood Race had given to James when he was abroad.
Thea accepted it. Right now, her expression was grave.
James traveled to another country to meet with the Blood Race and even went overseas, where he died, all in an effort to save her.
If she had known this, she would have chosen to die in the first place. If she had died, James would not have been running around for her sake.
Thomas looked at Thea and asked, “Is it okay if I take your pulse?”
“Mhm…” Thea extended her hand to him.
Thomas wrapped his fingers around her pulse.
After some time, he retracted his hand with a solemn expression and said, “There’s still an extremely powerful energy in your blood.”
“Yes,” Thea said, “This blood was given to me by the Omniscient Deity. It stimulated me and my nervous system and helped me regain my strength. I absorbed the energy from Spirit Turtle’s blood in my body. However, there’s still the energy from the blood gifted by the Omniscient Deity. I’ve no idea what kind of energy it is…”
Thomas pondered for a while and said, “If I guess correctly, this is kylin blood.”
“Kylin blood?” Thea frowned.
“Yeah.” Thomas nodded and said, “Kylin, one of the Four Holy Beasts. If I’m not mistaken, the Omniscient Deity is at the ninth rank. The Omniscient Deity’s ancestor, no, not his ancestor… The Omniscient Deity had obtained the kylin’s blood a very long time ago. He’s an extremely powerful martial artist who has actually lived for over a thousand and eight hundred years, nearly two thousand years.”
