Chapter 557 Who
From a certain point of view, before Wang Tianzong had officially made a breakthrough, Li Tianlan had arguably been the one who knew the combat capability of the Chosen One most.
His sword intent was in the most perfect state. If he used his sword intent to simulate the Sword Energy, he could imagine how powerful and prosperous the Chosen One’s sword was.
It was also because of this that he was so fearful in the face of Wang Tianzong, who was about to break through.
The suffocating pressure was like a shadow that covered the whole sky. There was no light, but only the deepest darkness and majesty. In this state, Wang Tianzong’s every move made him extremely nervous.
Li Tianlan had known long ago that the Master of Samsara Palace had had a sword move.
That was the most powerful trump card of Samsara Palace.
Li Tianlan had also estimated the power of this sword move, and his conclusion was clear. The power of this sword move was generally between the Peak of the Invincible Realm and the Half-step Invincible Realm. Only in this way could all of the Dark World be afraid of it.
Nevertheless he didn’t expect that he had still underestimated this sword move.
The most powerful ace card of the Master of Samsara Palace was a sword move of the Chosen One!
Moreover, he was the Chosen One who was currently at his Peak.
The power of this sword strike almost exceeded the limit of Li Tianlan’s imagination. No matter how amazing the power of this Virtual Divine Weapon with colorful lights was, and no matter how brilliant the sword formation created by the Chosen One himself was, the Master of Samsara Palace had to pay the price for this sword strike.
“You won’t be able to bear it by yourself, let alone Wang Tianzong!” Li Tianlan said with a serious face as he looked into the eyes of the Master of Samsara Palace.
The Master of Samsara Palace was also looking at Li Tianlan.
Her eyes looked very calm.
After an unknown period of time, a faint smile appeared on her soft face. “You care about me?”
“I said that you couldn’t take this sword strike!”
Li Tianlan suddenly became extremely irritated for no reason. He didn’t know how this feeling came about, but his almost instinctual feeling kept reminding him that he absolutely couldn’t let the Master of Samsara Palace use this sword move. Otherwise, he would probably regret it for the rest of his life.
The increasingly clear instinct almost constantly roared and occupied all of Li Tianlan’s consciousness. His heart beat wildly, and the worries and fears in his subconscious mind completely poured out. He forgot his respect for the Master of Samsara Palace.
“I can’t take it, neither can Wang Tianzong.”
The Master of Samsara Palace looked at Li Tianlan and said in a soft voice, “There are many results after this sword move. The best result is that Wang Tianzong and I die together. The worst result is that I die and Wang Tianzong is seriously injured. But even the worst result is already very good for you.”
Her voice was steady and delicate.
In fact, Li Tianlan was wrong.
He was not the only one who knew about the Chosen One. In this era where no one had ever seen the Chosen One, only the Master of Samsara Palace had really seen the power that could change the sky and the earth.
Maybe she didn’t know Wang Tianzong, but it didn’t matter.
Wang Tianzong could definitely break through.
It didn’t matter, anyhow.
In any case, he firmly believed that the Chosen One she knew could not be stronger than Wang Tianzong after the breakthrough.
Yet, after the breakthrough, Wang Tianzong could not be stronger than the real Chosen One she had come into contact with.
Both sides were evenly matched.
She was confident that she could copy the most powerful sword move at its Peak.
So whether the result was the best or the worst, it was actually not terrible.
She did not care about life and death. What was the point of everything?
“This is not what I want,” Li Tianlan said, and he suddenly felt powerless.
He was well aware of the consequences of all this.
Everything was on the surface. If he became the Chosen One, there was no way for him to let anyone make a copy of his sword move without a scratch.
The Chosen One represented absolute majesty, absolute supremacy, and absolute ruling power.
How could such a move be replicated?
Even if so many conditions were added, the Master of Samsara Palace had to pay the price.
“But this is what Sister wants,” Qin Weibai said in a soft voice.
The emotions in her eyes changed, and the crystal-clear light was like the shining starry sky.
“Why?” Li Tianlan asked.
Qin Weibai wanted to speak.
Li Tianlan suddenly glanced at her and shook his head.
He looked straight at the Master of Samsara Palace and asked, “Why?”
“It has something to do with you, and it has nothing to do with you.”
The Master of Samsara Palace smiled gently. Her eyes grew softer and softer, but there was a bit of stubbornness and sadness in them. “The biggest reason might be that I want to end up in my own way.”
“Do you like this ending?”
Li Tianlan let out a cold laugh. Panic kept spreading through his cold body, and his breathing was a little trembling.
“You still don’t understand. It’s not a matter of whether I like it or not. It’s a matter of fate. My fate is doomed to be like this,” the Master of Samsara Palace whispered.
Li Tianlan took a deep breath.
He was grateful to the Master of Samsara Palace and respected her. Still, frankly speaking, they were not familiar with each other. Today, it was their first formal meeting, and he didn’t know why his mood fluctuated so violently. He closed his eyes and said coldly after a long time, “I don’t believe in destiny.”
There seemed to be some kind of emotion breaking in the soft eyes of the Master of Samsara Palace. Then she became absent-minded and desperate.
There was a moment of silence in the room.
Li Tianlan forced himself to calm down. After a long while, he said lightly, “I need to know the reason why the Samsara Palace fought with Wang Tianzong. You just said that you were in a high position, and you couldn’t tell me if you would live or die.”
“I did say that.”
The Master of Samsara Palace whispered, “But without the Samsara Palace, I wouldn’t be in such a high position.”
“The Samsara Palace has existed until today, and it has already achieved everything it can do. Now, there is no need for it to exist. When things in Eastern Europe are over, Little Bai will go back to Tiannan with you, and the other side has made all the preparations. It will be your real sky. With Little Bai’s help, I can rest assured, too.”
Li Tianlan frowned and looked at the Master of Samsara Palace in silence.
“The chaos in Eastern Europe was caused by the Samsara Palace, so I’ve always been able to grasp the general direction of the chaos. Tianlan, now you’ve done everything you have to do. You shouldn’t care about how Wang Tianzong broke through. The final battle is not your business. All the grudges will end in the final battle. As for the future, it’s a new era. Isn’t that good?”
“No matter how great the era is, if you can’t see it, what’s the point of it for you?” Li Tianlan said coldly.
“For such a good era, I don’t deserve to watch it.”
The Master of Samsara Palace smiled brightly, but she looked a little miserable.
“So you’re going to die?”
Li Tianlan looked at the Master of Samsara Palace and gave a self-mocking smile. “And you’re going to die for me?
“What’s the reason?”
The Master of Samsara Palace was silent for a while, and then slowly said, “A reason? Just think of it as what I owe you, and I’ll pay you back.”
“You don’t owe me anything.”
All the negative emotions in Li Tianlan’s heart broke out completely. He said in a cold voice, “Before today, you were just a name I heard from other people’s mouths. We haven’t even met each other before today. What can you owe me?”
“Do you still remember Dongcheng Huangtu?” the Master of Samsara Palace suddenly asked.
Li Tianlan paused slightly.
Of course, he remembered Dongcheng Huangtu. In fact, out of some curiosity, he had been looking for clues about Dongcheng Huangtu. Yet all the clues he received revealed a problem.
He said, “But this person doesn’t exist, and he shouldn’t exist either.”
“If he really doesn’t exist, why would you be here?”
The voice of the Master of Samsara Palace was drifting, but in Li Tianlan’s ears, it was like a thunderbolt.
Li Tianlan’s face suddenly turned pale. He gritted his teeth and said, “What do you mean?”
“I don’t mean anything.”
The Master of Samsara Palace whispered, “It’s just that for me. Things that have existed can’t be denied.”
“He is the Chosen One, so naturally he has always existed.”
Li Tianlan subconsciously glanced at Qin Weibai.
Qin Weibai had been silent. Her perfect and exquisite face seemed to be a little transparent under the light.
He remembered the name of Dongcheng Huangtu that Qin Weibai had mentioned to him for the first time.
He had been surrounded by several Invincible Realm experts, disturbed by countless Thunder-shocking Realm experts, and drowned by murderous weapons and numerous people at the same time. Corpses had been all over the place, and blood had flowed like a river.
“He was besieged by six Invincible Realm experts until he died?” Li Tianlan asked.
“To be exact, there were three murderous weapons and seven experts at the Peak of the Invincible Realm. One of them could barely be called the Chosen One, but he was just in a bad state,” the Master of Samsara Palace said.
Even Li Tianlan, who thought he had known a lot about the Chosen One, was speechless for a long time at this moment.
Seven experts at the Peak of the Invincible Realm.
Not to mention that one of them was the Chosen One in a bad state, even if there were only seven who were at the Peak of the Invincible Realm, in this era, they could take care of anything.
Now in all of the Dark World, there were less than seven confirmed experts at the Peak of the Invincible Realm.
Not to mention the three murderous weapons and numerous people.
The most important thing was that he still remembered what Qin Weibai had said before.
In such a siege, Dongcheng Huangtu had been killed by a sneak attack. At that time, he still had had one more sword move.
It had been a sneak attack from a woman whom he loved deeply and who also loved him deeply.
If it hadn’t been for that sword move, the final result might not have been as clear.
Every time Li Tianlan heard this, he was shocked.
“Dongcheng Huangtu… did he really die?” Li Tianlan suddenly asked.
“Of course he’s dead.”
The Master of Samsara Palace sighed softly.
Li Tianlan nodded and said, “Oh, what does it have to do with me?”
“I owe him this and can’t pay him back. But I can’t watch you continue to struggle in this era. It’s the same to give something back to you,” the Master of Samsara Palace said plainly.
“What do you owe him?”
Li Tianlan suddenly felt a little curious. If the Master of Samsara Palace was paying the debt, one could imagine how important the debt was to make an expert at the Peak of the Invincible Realm pay the debt with his life.
The Master of Samsara Palace didn’t say anything.
Li Tianlan glanced at her and said, “What does Dongcheng Huangtu have to do with me?”
The Master of Samsara Palace still didn’t say anything.
Li Tianlan glanced at Qin Weibai.
Qin Weibai had regained her calmness. At this time, she was staring at him with a face of innocence. Obviously, she didn’t know either.
Li Tianlan thought about it and simply changed his angle.
The existence of Dongcheng Huangtu was too vague. Even the clue he had was not enough to help him to find out the person who seemed to have a related relationship with him. So he asked directly, “Who killed Dongcheng Huangtu that year?”
The Master of Samsara Palace remained silent.
It was a long, long time.
In the almost frozen time, she finally looked up at Li Tianlan.
Her eyes were calm, but her voice seemed to be passing through a desert in an invisible way and became extremely hoarse and dry.
“It was me.”
The Master of Samsara Palace said, “I killed him.”
