Zhao Manyan was in a bad mood. Mo Fan and Mu Bai already made contact with the Super Level, yet he was still stuck at the Advanced Level. How was he going to boast about his talents if they went to find hookers together?
That being said, the wooden clapper did not show any interest in the Horn of the Deer God. Perhaps its energy was incompatible since Baxia was a Totem Beast in the ocean, while the Deer God was related to the sky!
What kind of Totem Power would be compatible, then?
Mo Fan gladly claimed the Horn of the Deer God while Zhao Manyan was lost in his thoughts. Little Loach could slowly absorb the Totem Power of the Horn of the Deer God after it was placed inside the Space Ring.
Little Loach was extremely satisfied. The Totem Power of the Horn of the Deer God suited its appetite perfectly. It was even stronger than the Totem Power it had taken from the Moon Moth Phoenix before!
They had come a long way for the Tree of Vows, and almost died as a result. Mo Fan was overjoyed after his efforts finally paid off.
Little Loach’s speed of absorption did not disappoint Mo Fan. He soon felt the energy essential for him to achieve the Super Level inside what Little Loach was feeding him!
“You should keep the energy first. I don’t have time to cultivate right now!” Mo Fan quickly told Little Loach that there was no need to rush it, seeing how loyal it was.
Mo Fan would have no problem reaching the Super Level with the help of the Deer God’s Totem Power. He just needed to cultivate in seclusion for some time!
The cold Wind of Sorrow swept and shook the colorful leaves vigorously. Jiang Shaoxu lifted her eyes and pointed above the Tree of Vows, “They are still going higher. Should we catch up to them?”
“Little Moon Moth Phoenix won’t be able to endure the Wind of Sorrow any further,” Yu Shishi told them.
Yu Shishi had hoped that Little Moon Moth Phoenix would be able to reach a greater height, but her physical strength was no match for the Silver Skyruler and the other Ruler creatures. Their current height was likely Little Moon Moth Phoenix’s limit. She might freeze to death if she tried to go any higher.
Not only was Little Moon Moth Phoenix struggling against the Wind of Sorrow, the rest of the group had no chance to resist the extreme wind, either!
“Hopefully, the other winged beasts are stronger than the Silver Skyruler,” Zhang Xiaohou mentioned.
“The Silver Skyruler is very strong among the Ruler-level creatures. There’s nothing we can do in this competition for the throne of the Emperor of Feathers. Let’s hope our country is blessed by the Heavens. Otherwise, another great disaster is going to come from the Qinling Mountains,” Jiang Shaoxu murmured.
“With your father around, no city in the Central Plains will be in danger, even if the Silver Skyruler managed to take over the Qinling Mountains!” Li Dexin swore.
“Knowing how grim the situation of our country is, it’s better if we can lessen the threats,” Jiang Shaoxu replied.
Zhang Xiaohou was still looking up. His eyes were fixed on the winged beasts flying to greater heights after passing the Tree of Vows, including a formidable silver figure.
Even though the Black Totem Snake was able to beat the crap out of the Silver Skyruler, these Ruler-level creatures were still too strong for them. They would most likely be wiped out if they dared to provoke the Silver Skyruler!
Zhang Xiaohou clenched his teeth. If only his cultivation was a bit stronger, he would definitely chase after the Silver Skyruler, even if he could only stop the Silver Skyruler from claiming the throne of the Emperor of Feathers. He knew what the terrifying consequences would be once the Silver Skyruler claimed the throne better than anyone else!
Mo Fan knew what Zhang Xiaohou was thinking. He patted his friend on the shoulder and said, “Forget it, you can take on the responsibility in the future. With your cultivation and the help from the military, the day when you are strong enough to face the Silver Skyruler won’t be far away, even if it does become the Emperor of Feathers of the Qinling Mountains.”
Zhang Xiaohou nodded. He understood where Mo Fan was coming from. Going after the Silver Skyruler now was suicide. He would not give up if it was within his capabilities, but if something was beyond his capabilities, he had no choice but to set it aside for now. He had to hold his ground no matter what happened. He needed to be confident about his future!
“The Tree of Vows has some rare fruits. I’ll ask Little Moon Moth Phoenix to pluck them for you, but I’m afraid we won’t have a chance to see the Sacred Waterfall. We’ll bring the fruits back to prove that we reached this height!” Yu Shishi declared.
The Tree of Vows was like an old home to the Little Moon Moth Phoenix. She was very familiar with its surroundings.
The Tree of Vows was the home of some special creatures. They were hiding behind the colorful leaves and observing the outsiders alertly. However, they did not attack them since the Moon Moth Phoenix was around.
Little Moon Moth Phoenix plucked some fruits and split them among the group.
“What can I use this for?” Ling Fei asked.
“The fruit’s effects differ between people. You can just bring it back and eat it. Consider it a blessing for being able to find the Tree of Vows, but a creature can only eat a single fruit from the Tree of Vows. After the first fruit, eating more of the fruit won’t bring you any benefits, and it might harm you instead,” Yu Shishi said.
“The fruits of the Tree of Vows are similar to the Blessing of the God’s Seal from the Parthenon Temple. You should treat it preciously. We only have the chance to claim them after reaching our current altitude during the Ceremony of the Winged Beasts…” Jiang Shaoxu said.
“Are you serious? It’s comparable to the Blessing of the God’s Seal?” Mo Fan and Zhao Manyan’s eyes widened simultaneously.
“Mm, it’s a permanent blessing, but I have no clue if it’s as effective as the Blessing of the God’s Seal. It might only be a minor improvement to our strength,” Jiang Shaoxu said.
“Are the fruits really that impressive? Little Moon Moth Phoenix, I have a basket here! Can you please fill it up with the fruits for me?” Mo Fan asked the Little Moon Moth Phoenix shamelessly.
“Are you going to eat the fruits like they are rice!?” Yu Shishi snapped.
“I can give them to the others, or even auction them in the marketplace. I bet they are as expensive as a huge building in a city!” Mo Fan exclaimed.
“Mo Fan, she already said that the Tree of Vows will only grant its fruits to the creatures that have reached it. It won’t give the fruits to those that have never been here,” Lingling said.
“Oh, that’s true…” Mo Fan felt it was a pity. However, he was curious when he recalled Jiang Shaoxu’s words. He asked, “Jiang Shaoxu, it’s your first time here. How do you know all this?”
“I read it in my brother’s journal. It’s the reason I’m here,” Jiang Shaoxu said.
“Jiang Shaojun has been here, too?”
“Mm, I’m following the trail he left. I might be able to bid him farewell for real once I reach the end of it!” Jiang Shaoxu smiled.
