Su Wen did not expect Die Yi to have such methods.
He pondered for a moment and also understood the general problem. The black bug in Sun Wei’s body was probably the catalyst for the person who drew the border to extract the life force of the Zhou Country.
However, Su Wen still frowned. Logically speaking, this method could not be spread to everyone just like that!
‘There would definitely be people who did not come to the capital.
This was for sure. Be it those hermits of the martial world, outlaws, or even those who formed rebel factions, there would definitely be people who would be out of the scope of the Royal Court’s authority.
Then what about these people?
And what would happen to the newborns?
Su Wen looked at Sun Wei and asked coldly, “Are there still normal people? How are the newborns?”
Sun Wei shook his head and said, “No. Ever since the announcement of realm separation, everyone has been like this, and most of the newborns are thin and weak.”
Su Wen frowned when he heard this.
‘What was going on with this place?
How would he know that after Zhizhen controlled this world, he had essentially changed the very laws of this place?
In the beginning, he needed to use bugs as a medium to extract life force.
However, when he became the ruler of this realm, when he set the laws, he mixed some of his own within.
When a new realm boundary was drawn, the laws of Heaven & Earth Law would be reestablished. Everyone in this realm, as long as their cultivation level was not at the Heaven Rank, would be forcefully changed by the law, allowing him to extract their life force at any time to strengthen himself.
‘As for the newborns, they had no way to escape the brand. The moment they were born, they were already trapped within the palm of Zhizhen’s hand.
After thinking for a while and unable to figure out the reason, Su Wen did not say anything else.
After all, Su Wen did not know much about many things.
At the very least, Su Wen knew the general reason behind their current appearances.
After pondering for a moment, Su Wen took out the bug in Sun Wei’s body and placed it in a jade bottle before putting it away.
He did not know if this thing could be brought through the teleportation portal, but he planned to bring it back for Ni Hongxiao to see.
As for the solution, Su Wen had not thought of it yet.
The Second Prince… should have already been controlled by someone.
Or it could be that he was conspiring with this person.
‘Then what role did Emperor Zhou play in this matter?
An innocent person?
Or a participant?
Su Wen did not know.
After exiting Sun Wei’s residence, Su Wen directly stepped through the teleportation portal and left the capital of Zhou Country.
After returning to Frost Iron City, Su Wen took out the jade bottle from his chest pocket, discovering that the bug inside was completely unharmed.
Obviously, in the system’s judgment, carrying such a thing was not against the rules.
Su Wen hurriedly went to find Ni Hongxiao and gave this bug to her for her to research.
After that, Su Wen, Su Changqing, and the others gathered again.
The matter of Emperor Zhou leading his men to attack the demons still had to be dealt with.
At this moment, everyone had already been gathered together by Gongsun Shi.
‘When the Su father and son entered, everyone’s hearts skipped a beat.
Su Wen… this fellow was not a pushover.
At this moment, Su Wen still had a smile on his face.
Seeing that everyone had arrived, Gongsun Shi said in a low voice, “Since everyone is here, let’s discuss how to fight against the demons today!”
Emperor Zhou was secretly delighted when he heard this!
If they succeeded in reactivating the war between the humans and demons, the Zhou Country at the rear could take the opportunity to send people to attack the human world!
At this moment, Su Wen smiled and said, “The Demon Emperor Chu Xun gave us three days to consider. However, in my opinion, there’s no need to consider this matter. Since we want to fight, then let’s fight!
It’s just that I feel that everyone from Zhou Country performed extremely well when they launched the surprise attack previously. This time, they can be the vanguard! Uncle Zhao, I’ll have to trouble you!”
‘As Su Wen spoke, he looked at Emperor Zhou with a smile.
This address of Uncle Zhao made Emperor Zhou feel awkward!
He was not stupid! Be the vanguard? What kind of joke was this?
Shouldn’t Saints charge into battle between the two worlds?
Put him as the vanguard?
This brat wanted to harm him!
‘The comers of Emperor Zhou’s mouth twitched slightly. His joy from before had long disappeared.
He looked at Su Wen and refused sternly, “This doesn’t make sense. In a war between the two worlds, the ones with the higher cultivation will naturally have to go first. Moreover, there’s no such thing as a vanguard. We Heaven Rank experts can just charge forward like a swarm of bees. If we win, we win.
If we go first, won’t we die for nothing? Don’t avenge private grudges!”
Su Wen also knew that he would definitely not dare to do so, thus he teased, “Uncle Zhao, why don’t you dare to do so now? I heard that you were very brave when you attacked the Demonic Tribe’s territory a few days ago! Didn’t you kill two Heaven Rank experts?”
“Hmph! Don’t be so sharp-tongued!” As he spoke, Emperor Zhou looked at Gongsun Shi and said, “If the Saint wants to kill me, he can kill me with a flip of his hand! You can naturally give my head to Chu Xun to quell the problem. There’s no need to go through so much trouble!”
He knew very well when to retreat and advance.
However, Su Wen didn’t care. He knew that they could not rely on a Heaven Rank expert to fight the demons this time.
He was just trying to scare Emperor Zhou.
Gongsun Shi shook his head and said, “You don’t have to worry. The people of our human world are on the same side. We will definitely win this battle!”
Emperor Zhou smiled and said, “We have two Saints! We will naturally win!”
Gongsun Shi shook his head and said, “Snow Saint won’t make a move this time. She’s in charge of guarding against the person who separated the realms in Zhou Country. This person is the True Demon Emperor from tens of thousands of years ago!”
“What?” Everyone was shocked.
This was the first time they had heard Gongsun Shi mention this matter.
Of course, Su Wen was not included. He had already learned some things from Gongsun Shi.
However, he did not go too deep in this matter. Thus at this moment, Su Wen still did not know that the True Demon Emperor was the Little Monk Zhizhen.
‘Thus, guarding the realm borders was a reasonable matter to him!
To most people, they did not know that it was difficult for Monk Zhizhen to come to the human world.
After a simple discussion, everyone dispersed.
Gongsun Shi, Su Wen, and Su Changqing stayed behind.
“How are the preparations?”
“It’s almost done!”
Su Wen replied softly. He looked at Gongsun Shi and asked, “Senior Gongsun, can I ask why it’s impossible for the people who crossed realms to enter the human world?”
Gongsun Shi glanced at Su Wen and said in a deep voice, “I don’t know either! I only know that the power of heaven and earth will reject him and the power of the world will attack him. I don’t know anything else.”
Su Wen sighed and said, “According to what the True Demon Emperor said, even if we defeat the demons, we will still welcome new enemies in the future, right? How should we martial artists transcend and escape this fate?”
Gongsun Shi said softly, “I don’t know. Perhaps we can only be like him and establish a separate realm. Or perhaps, it will be like what the Realm Controller said, kill this person, or comprehend the Great Dao.”
After all, this was a path that no one had ever taken before.
Both sides fell silent.
Su Wen thought back to what happened in the Star Martial Mystic Realm back then.
The Star Martial Mystic Realm was created by the Nine Saints. It was said to be used to nurture talents in the human world.
However, from a certain point of view, wasn’t the Star Martial Mystic Realm also a world? It could even be said that from a certain point of view, they existed as many worlds!
Were the Nine Saints doing this to nurture talents or to transcend?
The souls of the living beings in the Star Martial Mystic Realm were incomplete.
If that was the case, would the world he was in be an incomplete world compared to a higher-level world?
