Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 1850
Chapter 1850 – Voidheart Worm
Anyone would go crazy if they had that identity! But Weisheing Moran didn’t. Her mind kept conjuring up the image of the woman laying in the dark cave. She had been killed by her lover! And even up until today, her children continued to mock her. The thought of it infuriated her. Most of her rage was directed toward the dreamless celestial emperor, though some of it still went toward the two children who followed their father.
Due to having sentience, Weisheng Moran was even more tragic than her forty-nine sisters. They were ignorant, like beasts, and it was more like they had never even come into this world.
But she had come, and even formed attachments.
“Your eyes tell me knowing the truth has made you even more pained,” Weisheng Xi said, somewhat surprised.
“Yes, thank you,” Weisheng Moran said.
“No problem. There was a time I really thought I had a little sister who could talk… then I realized a freak like you can’t even be called a person, so, whatever. A little loneliness on the road to growing up is nothing, right?” Weisheng Xi said.
“Right, I apologize for disappointing you,” Weisheng Moran said.
“Honestly, you’re good looking and resemble mom quite a bit. I used to be jealous of you,” Weisheng Xi said.
“That’s meaningless.” Weisheng Moran shook her head.
“It really is. You aren’t a person anyway—and how can humans envy monsters, right? Hey, you won’t get angry if I talk like this, right?” Weisheng Xi laughed. She had never been a pleasant person and was telling Weisheng Moran this as retaliation and to spite her. After all, it was an unpleasant joke for a monster to have looks that made her jealous. If she didn’t retaliate now, she wouldn’t get a chance in the future.
“I won’t get angry as I don’t have a soul.”
“Yes, you’re the same as those puppets. You were born by my dad, and it’s meaningful enough in your life to die for him. Mine and Weisheng Yin’s duty is to perpetuate the wonderian line on this world,” Weisheng Xi said.
Weisheng Moran smiled, then closed her eyes as if she was asleep. She really had fallen asleep. In her dream, the woman laying down whispered into her ear. “Those demons in the world will go to hell after death…”
Meanwhile, the bonegnaw ants which had been in her bones had snuck into the ship when they had boarded it.
Dreamless wouldn’t take long to reach the Myriaddragon Mountains at its current speed. Hence, father and son were making idle conversation inside the ship.𝑓𝙧𝙚𝙚w𝙚𝙗𝒏oν𝐞l. c𝑜𝙢
“Father, your child still has many doubts regarding this matter,” Weisheng Yin said from behind him.
“Regarding Skywolf?” the dreamless celestial emperor asked.
“Yes. If the sun emperor already knew long ago that Voidword Shrine had some madmen inside who wanted to summon Skywolf, why didn’t he try his best to wipe them out long ago? Even tens of thousands of years ago, the Voidword Shrine shouldn’t have existed.”
“For eras, the celestial orderians have been fooled. The Voidword Shrine burning the blood of skywolf royals was actually a ruse. Through the years when a skywolf royal appears, they’re all burnt to death by Voidword Shrine, but it never worked! The sun emperor also knew that the blood burning was useless, so he just let it be. After all, the Sky Palace and the Myriad Solar Sects would never have allowed the celestial orderians to attack the Voidword Shrine. Who could’ve known if a ‘Skywolf invasion’ was an excuse or not?” the dreamless celestial emperor said.
“Then what about now?” Weisheng Yin asked.
“All these years, the Voidword Shrine has just been a misdirection. The ones who truly summoned Skywolf are in the Sky Palace,” the dreamless celestial emperor calmly said. He was clearly not as panicked as the Saintdragon Emperor and the others about the Skywolf invasion.
“Why did Sky Palace do it? How did they do it?” Weisheng Yin asked.
“Listen well.” The dreamless celestial emperor deeply inhaled, then continued, “It’s simple. Centuries ago, the remnants of the skywolf royals finally found a frozen cosmic wildbeast, the voidheart worm, which had been left behind during the past invasion by Skywolf. It was in its larval stage when it was sealed inside the ice. Since then, it’s been growing in the Voidsky Realm, which is rich in nova source. When it reached a certain stage, its voidheart worm brethren on Skywolf could use their racial abilities to sense its existence and use it as a locator for Skywolf.
“Honestly, the skywolf royals are quite cunning. They infiltrated the Voidword Shrine and sent their descendants to death so as to numb generations of sovereigns and celestial orderians, making them think they were idiots. When the sovereign disregarded them, the voidheart worm extended its tentacles toward the Sky Palace. This generation of Sky Palace members must’ve been eaten by it. Those public members must actually be its progeny!
“I myself only sensed the tentacles of the voidheart worm a few days ago, and only knew it was mature when I went back and checked the divine wonderians’ records. Now that it’s matured so much, Skywolf must know the sun’s position and are already heading this way. I expect them to be arriving soon! I wanted Little Fish to join the Voidsky Skirmish that time so she could infiltrate the Sky Palace because I already felt suspicious then. But Li Tianming ended up ruining my plans, or else I would’ve found out much earlier.” The dreamless celestial emperor gnashed his teeth, obviously displeased about the voidheart worm.
“Does the sun emperor not even know about the voidheart worm?” Weisheng Yin frowned. “To my knowledge, this generation’s sovereign is quite terrifyingly strong. Skywolf may invade, but their strongest may not even be on his level…. So why doesn’t he kill it?” Weisheng Yin asked.
“First, he only found out after the Sky Palace was already under control. The worm’s main body has always been in the Sky Palace Formation, untouchable. Second, which is the most important….”
“The sun emperor is just a native of the sun. His knowledge is limited, no matter how talented he is. He’s never been to the Mysterium Cluster, so he doesn’t know the voidheart worm is one of the colonizing insects bred by the mysterians, nor does he know that Skywolf is one of the Voidsky Organizations set up by the mysterians. If he knew the voidheart worm was summoning Skywolf, he would’ve tried to kill it long ago. I bet he was excited when the worm controlled the Sky Palace, and thought it was his chance to unify the sun. It’s too late for him to have found out now, because it’s behind the formation and he can’t do anything no matter how strong he is. Well, he can’t be blamed. It’s a limitation of knowledge. He even knows I have many ‘daughters’ in secret, and says I’m rearing some little ghosts. However, he doesn’t know that they’re my divine wonder vessels,” the dreamless celestial emperor sneered.
“Voidsky Organization? So the mysterians are trying to muscle in on our divine wonderians’ turf?”
“Yes. Although we have the Wondersky-Mysterium Alliance, outside of the Mysterium Cluster we’re in competition. Usually, we’re faster. However, if we’re one step slower this time, we won’t be able to overcome the Voidsky Organization and will have to hand the sun over to the mysterians,” the dreamless celestial emperor said.
“Question, why do we divine wonderians construct wondersky realms everywhere?” Weisheng Yin asked a question many wonderians questioned.
