    Elder Tianren looked at Gu Ruoyun's silent expression before he continued to speak, "As a means of repayment for the Secret Order, that cultivator has allowed the members of the Secret Order to accept this inheritance! However, this privilege was only limited to one person to per year! The cultivator had clearly explained that only those who were fated to have the inheritance would be able to obtain this inheritance. Everyone else would fail despite having accepted it. Even so, this inheritance has caused the Secret Order's powers to increase by leaps and bounds which was how we have arrived at where we are today."

    Gu Ruoyun raised her head as her gaze landed upon Elder Tianren's elderly features. She then slowly asked, "This must be the Secret Order's closely-guarded secret, why would you want to expose this to an outsider like me?"

    Elder Tianren smiled, "Because you are the champion of the assessment and the Secret Order has something which requires your help."

    Hearing this, Gu Ruoyun laughed indifferently, "I'm sorry, the Secret Order has such great power so why would you need my help? Besides, my life has barely even begun. I'm not willing to involve myself in the Secret Order's business."

    Gu Ruoyun does not know what the Secret Order wants her to do but there was no way it was anything good. Otherwise, why would Elder Tianren lower himself in front of her?

    Besides, she really does not think that she would be able to help the Secret Order based on her current ability.

    "Little girl, please listen to what I have to say first." A light flashed in Elder Tianren's eyes while a smile appeared on his face, "Following that powerful cultivator's wishes, the Secret Order had just stationed ourselves on Deity Peak when that powerful cultivator arrived again. This time, he had brought another person!"

    Gu Ruoyun did not speak as she listened solemnly to Elder Tianren's explanation.

    "He sealed that person in the training pagoda and entrusted the training pagoda to the Secret Order's care. He then disappeared and was never seen ever again."

    The training pagoda?

    Gu Ruoyun was shaken. The Stone Dragon that she had run into in the training pagoda had told her that its duty was to guard the person sealed in the training pagoda! If her guess was correct, the person which Elder Tianren had mentioned should be that same person!

    She wondered what kind of a person they could be that the Secret Order would have to guard them for over ten thousand years.

    "Not too long ago, the seal in the training pagoda began to weaken. Our Clan Leader then sensed that the person we have been guarding would soon emerge. Besides, that person's powers are too great. If they were allowed to make an appearance on this mainland, a calamity would fall upon us all. Unless that powerful cultivator who had granted the Secret Order the inheritance were to appear again, no one in this world would be able to subdue him! Hence, the Secret Order took the risk to recruit the talents of the mainland to accept the inheritance. If someone is able to successfully accept the inheritance, perhaps they would be able to subdue that person!"

    Gu Ruoyun's eyes shifted before she asked, "Do you happen to know the identity of the person who had granted the inheritance to the Secret Order?"

    "That person..." Elder Tianren paused before he replied with longing on his features, "That person could not be considered human but a god! There are records in the Secret Order archives where our late ancestors had addressed him with the word 'God'."


    Gu Ruoyun's eyes flickered. When a cultivator has achieved cultivation in the full circle state, they would become equivalent to a god! However, the most powerful cultivators were currently only at the ninth transformation state on this mainland. No one in the full circle state has ever appeared!

    Could it be that the cultivator mentioned by Elder Tianren was at the full circle state?

    "Are there any records of the situation surrounding that cultivator in your Secret Order's archives?" Gu Ruoyun furrowed her brows. After all, if she was to accept the Secret Order's task, she would need to understand everything about the enemy!
