#48 – The Girl With The Eyes Of The World.
While the two powers were trying to come with devious plans to deal with Yama in the Ghostfort Trials, in another place far away from the reach of the cultivators of the Heavenly Continent, they were five silhouettes chasing after two people.
“Come back here!” shouted one of the men who looked as if he was the leader of the five people.
“You will never catch my granddaughter and me! You guys are blinded by the church!” Shouted the elderly who looked as if he was running for his life.
“You will never be able to escape from us!”
“Haha. This is the first time I heard someone say that I Su Song, will not be able to escape from anyone.” The elderly replied.
“I admit you are strong and have the same cultivation level as us and will be able to escape from us if you were on your own, but I am not sure you will be able to with your grand-daughter.”
“Same Cultivation level? Are you sure about that?” Su Song said as he released his aura.
“You… You have broken through?!”
“Guo Jia… If it weren’t for the fact that I would have to protect my grand-daughter and not to want to put her in harm, I would have massacred all of you before this chase. I suggest you stop chasing as it is futile and tell the church that they will never get their hands on my grand-daughter!”
The elderly who seemed to act as if he has known the leader who was chasing him, warned him and told him to back off.
“Futile…don’t be full of yourself Su Song! It looks like the priest has predicted this to happen and personally gave me something that will even shock you!”
Guo Jia said as he pulled out a talisman which emitting a divine aura and pinched it. The divine aura covered a broad area which included Su Song and his grand-daughter. It looked as if a indestructible barrier blocked a particular part of the area.
Su Song who saw this couldn’t help but clutch on to his grand-daughters hand tightly. He couldn’t help but look at her fifteen-year-old grand-daughter Su Shi, who hid one of her eyes with an eye patch.
Su Song couldn’t help but remember all the hard times that she has been put through, hiding away from everyone once it was revealed that one of her eyes has the eyes of the world.
She had a tragic past where all her family members have been massacred because of her. She has even suggested a lot of times that she will let these people pluck her eyes instead of keeping it, but all her family members were against this idea and did all their best to protect her.
The decision made by her family members left her with only one person to care for at the end, and that was her grandfather because her clan was uprooted due to the eyes of the world.
The sacrifices made by her family members have made Su Shi into a strong girl, which gave her the will to take their wishes to carry the eyes of the world.
To the people in this world, a person who carries the eyes of the world would be looked as if she or he was the daughter or son of Heaven.
The reason why people of this world have paid serious attention to this news is that it has been passed down in history that the person who carries the eyes of the world will be able to control the whole word itself and even other planets in the universe.
One of the reasons why Su Shi has attracted a lot of attention is due to this legend of the eyes of the world. The greed of humans is a dangerous thing and after knowing that she carries the eyes of the world who wouldn’t want to have their hands on something that can decide life and death of every single person in the planet.
“Does the church want to take this so far even to the extent of using their holy talisman?!”
Su Song still couldn’t believe what was happening, how could he not know about the holy talisman from the church, it is used as a defence measure to keep unnecessary troubles away from the church and was only used as last resort.
“Su Song, all we asked is to give your grand-daughter to us as she has something that belongs to the church. It is an honour for your grand-daughter to sacrifice herself to the supreme being to maintain order in the world.”
“Belong to the church! Honour for the supreme being! Don’t use gods name to cover your leader’s greed. My grand-daughter was born with the eyes of the world, meaning the supreme being has chosen her, and no one has the rights to take away what belongs to her. The sacrifices made by my clan will not be wasted!”
“Why do you want to do this Su Song. I can guarantee you I will return your grand-daughter to you with a new pair of eyes.”
“Do you think I will allow that!” roared Su Song.
“Sigh..! I don’t get why you are so stubborn, you know that the church’s words must be upheld regardless of anything.”
“Upheld! Don’t make me laugh, don’t you think I don’t know who is controlling the church. I can’t believe you guys who should worship the supreme being has turned into the lapdogs of the… Chen Clan”
“Utter nonsense! I don’t get where you have got this news from, but the church has always followed the supreme being, and no one in this world has the right to change it and control us.”
“You are a stupid fool who doesn’t know what is going on. I feel pity for you for believing in that stupid leader of yours.”
“That’s enough! Surrender or We will kill both of you.!”
Guo Jia had enough of listening to Su Song as he started to lose patience.
“I think you have forgotten that I have broken through, even though I am locked in this area by the holy talisman, I can easily deal with each one of you!” Su Song said with a smirk.
“Don’t get too happy!”
Guo Jia snappily said as he looked to his colleagues as if they were getting a confirmation, each one of them took something out of from their storage ring, which looked like a potion.
“You guys…” Su Song, who saw the potion on each of their hands, started to get furious. How could he not know that these potions are called the Power of Agony, it is a potion that boosts a person cultivation level for a few hours, but the price they will have to pay is agony for months.
“Haha Su Song, You didn’t expect this ending, did you? I will kill you and take your grand-daughter with us.”
“Don’t think you, the church and the Chen clan have got the final laugh.”
Su Song’s reply made Guo Jio look at him suspiciously. He couldn’t understand why Su Song was so confident that nothing is going to happen regardless of all the methods he has put up, he couldn’t help but look at the grandfather and granddaughter pair.
“I initially didn’t want to do this as it will be hard to get back here, but in a place where the Su Clan doesn’t exist anymore. I think it will be better if both of us are not here anymore Su Shi.”
Su Song said while looked at his grand-daughter while he took out a talisman himself.
Guo Jia who saw the talisman in Su Song’s hand is shocked, this is because it is a transportation talisman that is almost extinct in this world, which will allow someone to break and travel into a different planet in the universe.
“To think the Su family had another trump card!”
As soon as Guo Jia finished saying this, he and the others jumped straight to stop Su Song. However, it was too late as Su Song has already pinched the talisman and Guo Jia and the others were left with nothing but air.
“What do we do now?” One of the colleagues asked.
“Nothing at all! Both of them have escaped, to think the Su Clan had this talisman all along. I have to tell the priest immediately so that they can start tracking to see which planet they have escaped to.”
