With the occurrence of the bizarre phenomenon at Mount Bane, Juniper Waseem, the Grand Priestess of the Void Sect, knew that something magical was born.
Although she knew that she would not stand a chance against Conrad, she came regardless. She surmised that he would not dare go all-out against her. Even if she perished in battle, Conrad would be gravely injured. This would provide the earthlings an opportunity to strike.
Thus, Juniper was unafraid when faced with Conrad.
She exuded a powerful aura as she looked death calmly in the face. Holding a sword in her hand, she pointed it at Conrad and said coldly,” Come at me, Conrad. We couldn’t fight to our heart’s content the last time we fought. Let me see how powerful you really are!”
Conrad’s face darkened as he looked at her. He had not expected her to return to Mount Bane. He knew about Juniper’s strength when he fought against her last time. Since she was only comparatively weaker, he would surely suffer grave injuries in the event of a conflict.
“Do you really think that I’m afraid of you, Juniper?” Conrad said coldly.
“You wouldn’t dare kill me,” Juniper said. “I admit that you’re strong, but you aren’t stronger than me. Meanwhile, there are humans equally strong as I am. If I go all-out, you’ll not stand a chance against the earthlings after suffering severe injuries. Hence, I suggest that we share the item amongst ourselves.”
Conrad was wearing a cloudy expression on his face. He was all alone on Earth without any additional reinforcements, and his disciples were weak. He could not stand against all his opponents by himself. However, the circumstances would be different if he could obtain the fruit.
His strength would reach even greater heights.
After thinking about it, he nodded and said, “Alright then, I promise you that the Void Sect will be given your share of the deal. However, you’ll have to join forces with me to resist the earthlings.”
Hearing this, Juniper breathed a sigh of relief. She knew that the earthling called the Omniscient Deity was extremely powerful. However, by combining forces with Conrad, she would have nothing to be afraid of.
Juniper looked at him and said, “I’d like to have a look at the mysterious item.”
“Follow me.” Conrad turned to leave.
Soon, they arrived at the berry tree.
It was a tree several meters in height. Purple flowers blossomed on the branches while radiating a purple light and exuding an alluring fragrance. The moment they approached the berry tree, Juniper could sense the overwhelming abundance of Empyrean Spiritual Energy. The Spiritual Energy was even greater than her sect’s Sacred Land.
“What powerful Empyrean Spiritual Energy… As expected of the ancestral land, its Spiritual Energy is so majestic even though the seal has yet to be released. What kind of power will be unleashed if it does?” Juniper was stunned.
Looking at Conrad, she asked, “What berry is this?”
Conrad shook his head and said, “I don’t know.”
“How was it formed?”
“You ask too many questions.” Conrad glanced at her coldly.
Seeing this, Juniper fell silent and stared at the purple flower. A purple light illuminated the surroundings, and an alluring fragrance permeated the air. Once the berry was ripe, this would be a significant object. She looked forward to that day.
Meanwhile, James and Thea waited patiently at the foot of Mount Bane. Many martial artists approached them to offer their greetings, to which James politely returned the kind gestures.
A day passed, and Langston and Tyrus appeared. Behind them were a few martial artists from Lothian, which included Tapio Cabral, Delainey’s elder brother.
James walked over to them and greeted, “Grandfather… Uncle…”
Langston waved slightly and looked at him, asking, “What’s the situation on Mount Bane?”
James shook his head and said, “I don’t know yet. I can only see a glimmering purple light in the distance and sense an alluring fragrance in the air. The mysterious berry must be ripe. However, I have no idea what it looks like. By the way, the Grand Priestess of the Void Sect ascended Mount Bane yesterday and has not returned since. She should have come to an agreement with Conrad Titus.”
Hearing this, Langston furrowed his eyebrows.
