I Am Really Not The Son of Providence - Chapter 355
That ancient tablet was dark red throughout, and mysterious Dao patterns appeared on the tablet’s surface as fire-attribute Spirit Qi on the lake was continuously absorbed by it.
At the same time, huge red suns were faintly discernible on the ancient tablet as it released a powerful aura.
The entire Immortal Abode Island shook slightly because of the tablet’s appearance!
The tablet, which was tens of thousands of feet tall, stood erect and unshakable within the sea of fire, instantly attracting the attention of countless people.
“Is that… Is it possible that it’s the Dao Imparting Tablet that the Golden Crow Thearch had left behind?”
Princess Linglong was astounded. “How is it possible for it to appear so easily?”
In fact, Princess Linglong was not the only one who had such doubts.
Almost all the powerful beings in the whole Immortal Abode Island were stunned as this was too illogical that it was unbelievable.
The Dao Imparting Tablet’s appearance caused a huge commotion, so the Sages’ divine consciousnesses had already swept across the tablet. They could clearly sense that this ancient tablet was not simple.
Its surface was carved with the supreme imperial sutra, the Imperial Sutra of Sun, which Golden Crow Thearch had cultivated. Also, it was definitely not the incomplete version that was spread throughout the five regions.
Although the forbidden chapters were not recorded within it, all the other imperial arts besides the forbidden chapters were complete.
The value of such a Dao Imparting Tablet was immeasurable. If one used it properly, it could be compared to an imperial sutra.
It could even help a top grotto-heaven be promoted to a true sacred ground!
Logically speaking, such an important heritage supreme treasure should not be so easily submerged in this lake.
Even if it was not placed in the core area of the Golden Crow Thearch’s Tomb as a burial object, it should at least be specially protected within the Immortal Abode Island’s inner region.
However, the reality was that the Divine Firmament Saint had just thrown a small ball of fire into this lake, and the ancient tablet had just appeared so easily.
It was literally too random, and where’s the face of an imperial-grade heritage!
If it was not for the fact that the imperial aura surrounding the surface of the ancient tablet was real and all divine consciousness that tried to examine it would be devoured, those Sages on Immortal Abode Island might even suspect that this tablet was fake!
Even Fang Chang, Zhang Yunting, Zhao Hao, and others, who had already experienced Shen Tian’s “providence” before, were all dumbstruck.
Not to mention Shi Linglong, who had only met Shen Tian for the first time. She had never seen how mysterious, powerful, and firm Shen Tian’s providence was.
Currently, she was so shocked her jaw dropped. It made her gorgeous face seem adorkable.
That little Phoenix loli with two red braids beside Shi Linglong had the same expression, and she even forgot to chew the fire crystals in her mouth.
It was too normal for rumors to be exaggerated, so rumors would not be very convincing. Thus, even if Emperor Shi had told Shi Linglong to be on friendly terms with Shen Tian, she had not taken it too seriously.
Only after meeting Shen Tian was she convinced by his strength and talent.
However, it was only limited to his talent and strength. Princess Linglong had not acknowledged Shen Tian’s identity of being the Son of Providence from the bottom of her heart.
Seeing was believing. Until this moment, Shen Tian actually made the Dao Imparting Tablet appear after randomly throwing a ball of fire into the lake that they truly understood what a “Son of Providence” was!
“Supreme treasure, a supreme treasure has appeared!”
A Sage that was enveloped by red flames tore through space and descended beside the lake. He looked at this ancient tablet, and his eyes were full of passion and longing. If he had guessed correctly, this was the legendary Imperial Sutra of Sun!
Even amongst all the fire-attribute imperial sutras, the Imperial Sutra of Sun was definitely one of the top, and it even had the good reputation of being the best out of all the Yang sutras.
This imperial sutra was not created by the Golden Crow Thearch but had existed since long ago, in the era in which almost no records could be found.
The Golden Crow Thearch had only cultivated this imperial sutra, and he was not the only one.
The number of Thearch that this imperial sutra had created was more than three in the ancient history which was recorded. There were even more that were unrecorded.
According to rumors, the heritage of Middle Ground’s Nine Sun Sacred Ground, Nine Sun Battle Sutra, had been created from the first half of the Imperial Sutra of Sun.
The Fire Sage was one of the Nine Sun Sacred Ground’s grand elders, so he knew that the authenticity of the rumor was extremely high. Thus, he would naturally place much emphasis on the Imperial Sutra of Sun.
He was just a Sage in the peak of Second Tribulation and half a step from becoming a True Sage. However, he clearly knew that this was his limit, and it was impossible for him to survive the third tribulation.
If he could learn the ancient tablet’s cultivation techniques and combine them with the Nin Sun Battle Sutra, he might be able to improve further and achieve greater heights.
“As expected of your high providence. You’re actually able to find such a treasure. Do you mind giving this to me?”
The Fire Sage looked toward that ancient tablet with passion as he slowly moved closer to Shen Tian, emitting a powerful aura and pressure.
It was obvious that the Dao Imparting Tablet was enough for the Sage to be tempted. This Sage from the Nine Sun Sacred Ground wanted to take a share of the loot.
Or it could be said that to monopolize it before other Sages arrived!
That Sage had already stretched out his hand toward that huge ancient tablet as he spoke.
At that moment, inexhaustible fire-attribute Spirit Qi gathered to form a gargantuan red hand, which could cover the sky. It held that ancient tablet steadily.
The Sage attacked suddenly. The space and ground started collapsing while the flames fragments scattered in all directions like shooting stars.
Shen Tian silently pulled Shi Linglong and the others that wanted to complain about the unfairness and secretly retreated. He remained calm and composed.
Shortly after, that Fire Sage’s smile froze.
That was because he discovered no matter how much strength he used, he was unable to move that ancient tablet even slightly.
It had risen up from the bottom of the lake, but it seemed like it had taken roots in Immortal Abode Island’s depths and was connected with the ground, causing it to be firmly in place.
Even though the Fire Sage had already used all his strength, nothing had happened.
“I’m going to slice this damn tablet into two!”
Sensing that more and more powerful beings were getting closer, the Fire Sage was embarrassed and enraged at the same time as he had made a fool of himself in front of a group of juniors.
He roared with anger, and endless raging flames instantly gathered to form a sword aura that sliced toward that ancient tablet.
Shen Tian’s pupils constricted before he pulled Shi Linglong and Zhang Yunxi and retreated a long distance once again.
Fang Chang and the others followed Shen Tian’s lead. They naturally did not ask the reason and directly followed behind Shen Tian.
That sword aura finally landed on that tablet, but the scene of the tablet being sliced into two did not happen. Not even a mark was left on the tablet!
The blazing fire sword aura had crumbled the moment it came into contact with the imperial tablet, turning into countless balls of flames before being absorbed and devoured by the imperial tablet.
At the same time, the imperial tablet glowed brightly as if it was angered.
All the patterns and characters on the imperial tablet shone radiantly.
The pictures of the sun carved on the tablet seemed to come to life as they actually turned into reddish-gold divine birds, and then Golden Crows flew out of the ancient tablet.
Raging flames burned around them, and they charged toward the Fire Sage at an unimaginable speed.
A total of nine Golden Crows that looked like nine suns hung in the air and released endless heat, aligning with the sun in the sky.
At that moment, the ten suns spread across the sky, ready to slay the Fire Sage.
