The Manifestation of the Flower of Life!
Xian’Er had recalled that she had taken a sympathetic look at the toddler and said to the Jade Emperor back then, “This is the Dark Emperor Robe. I shall bestow it to him. He will be a warrior-god among men.”
The Jade Emperor was startled for the Dark Emperor Robe was an ancient desolate artefact that was difficult to even exercise control so he hurriedly said, “No need…”
She replied, “You fear for him or you fear that he may not be capable of wielding mastery over it?”
The Jade Emperor heaved softly, “He is my only kin. I just want him to lead a peaceful life…”
She said, “Life and death is predestined. Everyone has their callings. Since I have granted him the Dark Emperor Robe then that is his destiny. Whether he can wield mastery over the ancient desolate artefact depends on him. Moreover…”
She seemed to look at the starry stars that were far away, “…moreover since I have foretold that he will have descendants after him therefore you shouldn’t worry too much. That is enough said of the secrets of the heavens.”
The Jade Emperor smiled weakly, “He…he is my only child with Qie’Er…”
She hummed softly, “Normally it is impossible for immortals to have any children. You are the first. Perhaps he is really destined for something greater.”
She had stopped short of telling the Jade Emperor that this toddler was actually the Great God Pangu incarnate as she sighed in her heart, “If he can become the Great God Pangu then I am no longer relevant because he won’t be able to remember me…”
She moved her fingers rapidly to divine as she thought, “Hmmm….the Goddess Celestial Alice seems to be his destined one…the Goddess Theocracy. Very well then I will give them a helping hand. I shall give ownership of the Stellar Sanctuary to the Goddess Celestial Alice…”
She looked at the Jade Emperor, “At the end of the nine thousands immortal years, a great calamity will befall to the Three Known Realms. What it is, I do not know for sure. But the Stellar Sanctuary will descend to the Celestial Realm at the start of the nine thousands immortal years. This will continue for a cycle of a thousand immortal years. Afterwards, you must hurry to the Stellar Sanctuary.
The Jade Emperor was startled!
“This…” he was stunned at this revelation!
He had heard that whoever could succeed to the top of the Stellar Sanctuary would take on the mantle of the Great God Pangu and be the next Great God Pangu!
She nodded gently, “When that time comes, whoever can reach the very top will be the successor to the Great God Pangu and become the supreme ruler of the Three Known Realms. You are free to go there.”
The Jade Emperor asked in a trembling manner, “Your divinity, this honor belongs to you and not to me…”
She smiled gently, “Soon the Great Goddess Fantian will be no more.”
She did not tell him that her golden body will be housed in the Stellar Sanctuary itself and she knew not to the answers that were in the 100th floor of the Stellar Sanctuary.
The Jade Emperor was stunned as he stammered, “Nothing will happen to your divinity…”
She shook her head, “But first, you have to enlighten the mortals and the beasts of the lower realm. You have to teach them the way to ascend to the Celestial Realm as Celestials and Divine Beasts. This monument task will be in your hands. In time to come, the other immortals will descend to the lower realms too. You must never reveal who you are till the last days.”
The Jade Emperor sighed softly, “So shall it be then…”
He closed his eyes to ask, “How long must I wait?”
At that time he did not know that he had to wait a million years for ten thousand immortal years was equivalent to one million years in the Mortal Realm!
