The Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus
“Fire Spirit? One of the prized treasures of the Craftsman God? That is the source for a Refinement Divine Tool.”
Ao Tian’s eyes were on fire and his lips indicated greed. That was a true treasure. Moreover, this fire spirit has bonded with the Heavenly Lightning Imperial Demon Blade, increasing the strength of the blade to the Heavenly God Weapon grade.
“Fire Spirit! The legendary Fire Spirit!” Luo Wenhao said with extreme shock.
The fire spirit was much more tempting than the Heavenly Lightning Imperial Demon Blade.
“Legends said that the Fire Spirit was the most prized treasure of the Craftsman God. One will obtain the inheritance of the Craftsman God if one manages to obtain the Fire Spirit.” Goddess Luo said plainly, but she too was eager in getting the item.
Flame covered the sky, and a fire blast shot out from the Heavenly Lightning Imperial Demon Blade.
Countless fire snakes covered the sun and sky, making the surrounding divine tools and weapons on the verge of melting. Every one of them had to use everything they had to withstand the flames. This was the power of the Fire Spirit, and it was mysterious. It could move the fire in a person’s heart. The flame of the Fire Spirit was much more powerful, dominant than Jiang Chen’s flames.
“This is not a simple fire, this is the strongest flame in existence—the Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus!” Mo Ling Dongchen said with a solemn expression.
“Impossible? Is the Fire Spirit forged from the Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus?” Ao Tian was in shock albeit a little in dismay.
Because the Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus was definitely something that they couldn’t control. It would burn everything in sight. Those that were weaker than Divine Kings would be burnt into nothingness.
Such powerful flame, who would dare to stand before it?
Even Jiang Chen has heard about the Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus. It was something stronger than the flames he possessed. Much stronger than his Three Thousand Flames Dragon Seal. This Divine Fire that was born from the Heaven and Earth. Who could possibly stand against it?
Even though Jiang Chen was haughty, he was not a fool. They have to temporary retreat from such a flame! They must not take it head-on or only death would await them.
Even Ao Tian and Luo Wenhao had to quickly retreat back to the second palace. Because the flame created from the Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus was too much to handle.
At this moment, hundreds of experts gathered in front of the second palace. Each and every one of them was Early Void Gods, even Zhan Lingyun was among them.
“Step back. Don’t come!” Jiang Chen saw Zhan Lingyun.
The latter was slightly stunned but still followed the rest of the group.
“Kakaka, trying to hoard the treasure? We’re not some weak…”
“Aghhh. Help! Save me…”
“Noo… I cannot die!”
“This… this… is too terrifying. This is hell on earth!”
The hundreds of experts were nearly wiped out. Zhan Lingyun was severely injured and he quickly ran out from the second palace. Only less than twenty experts survived. The others were burnt to a crisp by the Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus.
The flame created by the Fire Spirit gave everyone a lesson. A bloody lesson. A lesson carved from the lives of hundreds of experts.
From their point of view, Jiang Chen and the others wanted to hoard the treasure. But the moment they stepped into the third palace, it was already too late. The wrath of the Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus was something that could never imagine.
The surviving people who barely got out with their lives was wearing a pale white expression. Each and every one of them was severely injured. They managed to get out with their lives because they were the best amongst the hundreds. Otherwise, they would’ve joined the others and end up being burnt into ash.
“This is too terrifying! What flame is that?!” An Early Void God expert murmured.
“I thought this is the trove of the Divine Treasury. Pity. Only we survived. The others couldn’t even react and were burned to death.”
“Such terror. This Divine Treasury is truly a burial ground.” Someone said with a sigh, his eyes were filled with terror.
Hundreds of experts died on the spot. Who would have known that the Fire Spirit was THAT scary. Massacring people effortlessly.
This Refining God Temple. The name of the palace speaks for itself: Refine the souls of the gods!
“How are you, Zhan Lingyun.” Jiang Chen looked at Zhan Lingyun.
The latter could only nod with a bitter smile. He managed to enter the Divine Treasury with great effort. But he too would’ve died if Jiang Chen did not warn him before it was too late. That scene was truly devastating.
“I’ve almost lost my life there. Thank you, Brother Jiang Chen. You have saved me once again.”
Zhan Lingyun understood that Jiang Chen’s strength could not be measured the normal way. Jiang Chen’s Ninth Grade Immortal Sovereign cultivation was just a cover. Zhan Lingyun dared not to think how powerful his true strength was.
Jiang Chen’s group was the first to leave the Refining God Temple. The Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus was confined in that palace as if a restriction was placed.
That Fire Spirit dancing on top of the Heavenly Lightning Imperial Demon Blade was rapidly weakening.
“The Qi of the Fire Spirit is weakening. We should be able to enter once again in a short moment.” Luo Wenhao quietly said, looks like he really wants the Fire Spirit.
“Brother Jiang Chen, if you could help me get the Fire Spirit, the God Luo Clan shall owe you a favour. I, Luo Wenhao, will never forget it.” Luo Wenhao solemnly said while looking at Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen glanced at Ao Tian. There’s no other reason why he decided to help, he just despises that Ao Tian’s smug face. Moreover, he had already become an enemy of the Ao Clan. It would be unwise to offend the God Luo Clan now. Moreover, Luo Wenhao too had helped him earlier.
Jiang Chen was not an ungrateful person. He was a person who remembers his grudge and he will pay it back in full. It was the same with gratitude. This God Luo Clan must be a powerful clan in the Divine World. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to enter this place.
“It won’t be long. Once the flame has weakened, we’ll have a chance. This Fire Spirit. I must have it! A Fire Spirit that can unleash the Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus… a terrifying thing. This Fire Spirit too cannot withstand the corrosion of time. It has surely weakened.” Ao Tian sneered in his heart. He too was eyeing the Fire Spirit. But most importantly, the legend has said that the one who obtained the Fire Spirit will also obtain the inheritance of the Craftsman God!
