- Chapter 362 - : Jiang Ming: I spat a mouthful of blood
Looking at the three people in front of him, Jiang Ming had a general idea of them.
They were the elders of the Hall of Human Emperor.
Alas, the Hall of Human Emperor, an existence since ancient times. They wanted to integrate the forces of the human race into one. In the past, the Hall of Human Emperor was one of the most powerful forces in the world. However, they were targeted by the Saint Lords and quickly disintegrated before disappearing into history.
The only thing about the Hall of Human Emperor that remained was its will.
Some human experts secretly banded together. As they stayed hidden from the world and focused hard on their cultivation, they were patiently waiting for their opportunity to reappear in the world and integrate the forces of the human race.
When the Saint Lords left for the Chaos, the Heaven Court was already established. During that time, the Hall of Human Emperor re-emerged in the world but was severely suppressed. Most of the experts they manage to gather ended up dead as well, causing them to stay dormant from the world.
A hundred million, billions, and tens of billions of years passed. It was to the point that people had already lost track of time.
During their ascetic cultivation, the great monarchs such as Wan Lian were not willing to be cooped up like this. As a result, the few of them left their inheritance in every planar world, hoping to unearth some geniuses of the human race.
Many forces, such as the Infinite Alchemy Pavilion of the Tianyuan World, originated from this.
Of course, some forces of the Heavenly Realm left their inheritance in the human realm as well.
This continued until one day when an earth-shattering battle took place in the Infinite Realm Battlefield: A boy of the human race defeated the Northern Emperor Kun Peng and was even placed on a 100-years trial by the Heavenly Emperor. Upon passing the trial, he would be able to succeed the authority of the Northern Emperor.
Upon receiving such news, they immediately wondered if there was a force that was targeting their Hall of Human Emperor and was trying to lure them out to catch them all in one swoop.
Great Monarch Wan Lian confirmed that the rumors were true.
Upon the confirmation, they were immediately excited and were prepared to invite Jiang Ming to join the Hall of Human Emperor. In addition, there was also Mountain Master Tian Yuan to be invited as well.
However, being secluded from the world for such a long time had caused them to become extremely conservative. They continued to observe Jiang Ming from the sides.
Later on, Yu Fei gave Jiang Ming a hard time, leading to his great battle that shocked the world.
His capability finally tempted them. As such, they contacted Mountain Master Tian Yuan to use him as a middleman and informed Jiang Ming about their decision to elect Jiang Ming as the Human Emperor in the future.
To elect Jiang Ming in the future? Not one of the elders of the hall of Human Emperor came forward when he was in trouble at that time. Hence, Jiang Ming turned down the offer immediately.
In the Abyss, Jiang Ming had fought against the three Great Monarchs of the Taishang Sword Sect. As a result, two of them were killed, and even Tai Jian was almost killed too.
They knew that they couldn’t wait any longer. They had to directly elect Jiang Ming as the Human Emperor now.
To directly elect Jiang Ming by just passing the message to him? Jiang Ming refused the offer sternly and even warned them not to disturb his life again.
Even Jiang Ming didn’t expect that during this Venerates Conference held by Yu Fei, three Venerates of the Hall of Human Emperor would turn up and were of unfathomable cultivation realm.
According to the Human Path Record, there were another two Venerates, making up a total of five Venerates in the Hall of Human Emperor.
As for those of the Great Overarching Golden Immortal? There were quite many of them.
Hence, the Hall of Human Emperor was already an extremely terrifying force.
However, the strongest among them were but only of the later stage of the Quasi-Sage. As for the three in front of him now, they were merely in the initial stage of the Quasi Sage Realm.
“It’s not about revenge!” Immortal Venerate Qing Yun’s tone was still very indifferent. “The purpose of establishing sects and leaving inheritance was to nurture experts of our human race. During such a period, combat and death is unavoidable and is also the only way to lead a person onto the path of the peerless. However, you should not have killed all of them.
“It’s alright to kill, but you should’ve at least ensured their inheritance or legacy remained!
“A legacy is like a ball of flame. As long as the flame remains ablaze, civilization will never be extinguished. Our human race will then have the opportunity to continue to rise!
“A ball of flame might be little, but once many gather, it can even burn down the sky, turning into an unstoppable force!
“To unite with others in fights and to fight in between unity!
“Jiang Ming, now that your strength is among the best, it’s time for you to contribute some back to our human race!
“You are of the human race, after all. Human blood flows in your body!
“It’s fine when you didn’t have the ability back then. But now that you do, you naturally have to stand up!”
Immortal Venerate Qing Yun couldn’t stop as soon as he started preaching.
In response to Immortal Venerate Qing Yun’s remark, Jiang Ming merely smiled and said, “You have so many great remarks one after another. So let me ask you. Have you stood up yet?”
Through Immortal Venerate Qing Yun’s Status, Jiang Ming learned that this person wasn’t of bad interest to him and was taking the rise of the human race as his responsibility.
However, Immortal Venerate Qing Yun wanted the rise of the human race to be based on the inheritance of the Hall of Human Emperor as its foundation and principle. And based on the will of the Hall of Human Emperor.
He came forth this time to persuade Jiang Ming to take over the authority of the Hall of Human Emperor and inherit the will of the Hall of Human Emperor. At the same time, he would be restrained by a group of elders.
In short, he just wanted Jiang Ming to stand in the limelight.
As for the other things to be taken care of? The elders had already made plans.
As for the way to convince him? It was by oppressing him with righteousness.
In the face of righteousness, could he still disobey and not comply? It would be outrageous if he was to do so.
However, Jiang Ming also discovered something.
There were actually two different views among them on him taking on the throne of the Human Emperor.
One of them was led by Elder Yuan, who was at the later stage of the Quasi-Sage Realm. He wanted Jiang Ming to inherit the throne of the Human Emperor and then act according to the will of the inheritance.
Another was led by Great Monarch Wan Lian. He thought that since they wanted Jiang Ming to take over the throne as the Human Emperor, they should submit to Jiang Ming as their leader, although with some resources that were restricted from him.
Unfortunately, this influence of Great Monarch Wan Lian was far too weak to the point that in so many instances where he wanted to take the initiative to invite Jiang Ming over, he had to request Mountain Master Tian Yuan to speak on behalf of him to be safe.
“In the past hundreds of millions of years, I have nurtured three Great Overarching Golden Immortals and countless Taiyi and Golden Immortals!” Immortal Venerate Qing Yun looked gloomy. He was very displeased with Jiang Ming questioning him.
“That’s it?” Jiang Ming chuckled lightly.
“Isn’t that enough?” Immortal Venerable Qing Yun flicked his sleeves and snorted coldly. “I also secretly sheltered at least a trillion of the human race!”
“To be complacent with only this little achievement through hundreds of millions of years. I feel ashamed for you!” Jiang Ming’s smile gradually became indifferent. “If you want to oppress me with reasons and righteousness, then you must first stand on it yourself. Come then. Let me ask you. What have I achieved?”
“Your achievement?” Immortal Venerable Qing Yun frowned. “Destroying the Tian Yuan Realm. That should count as your achievement!”
Great Monarch Wan Lian grinned and couldn’t help but turn his head.
Immortal Venerate Tai Xu, on the other hand, looked down at his feet.
Mountain Master Tian Yuan gave a wry smile and thought, ‘Qing Yun, oh Qing Yun! I know you are old-fashioned and narrow-minded, but not to this extent!’
“I killed the Devil King of the Abyss and fought off the invasion of the Immortals in the Human Realm!” Jiang Ming lost his interest and said bluntly, “After I ascended into this realm here, I joined hands with Brother Tian Yuan and killed Bei Minghai, took down Kun Peng, destroyed the Demon Venerate of the Abyss, and many more. From the several battles, the number of Venerates that I’ve killed might be at least six! Qing Yun, how many Venerates have you killed? How many Venerates has the Hall of Human Emperor killed from ancient times to the present? Come on! Tell me!”
Jiang Ming gradually increased his voice as he spoke.
Great Monarch Qing Yun’s face suddenly turned ugly. He realized that he had miscalculated about Jiang Ming. He really did.
This junior was too disrespectful to the seniors and didn’t take them seriously.
He originally wanted to suppress Jiang Ming with righteousness. As a result, he was instead suppressed.
Upon looking at Jiang Ming’s expression, it seemed that he might have perhaps made things worse.
‘God damn it! This is just a strategy of mine! Why is such a junior like you overreacting!?’
“That is why we are inviting you to become the Human Emperor!” Great Monarch Qing Yun suppressed his rage and responded honestly.
Jiang Ming opened his mouth and almost spat out a mouthful of blood at the remark.
