Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
The white-haired old man looked at Gu Yu and Sun Qi as if they were a wacky duo,
“Why do you guys want to ascend to the summit of this cliff?”
Initially, Gu Yu wanted to say something for fun, but he figured it was not suitable for him to tell that to the indigenous people of the game. Thus, after some contemplation, he said once again,
“We heard that there’s a treasure on the summit of this cliff, so we want to ascend it to try our luck!”
“With just you and a dog?”
Sun Qi held down Gu Yu’s clenched fist quickly and hinted at him to calm down.
Gu Yu felt his temper becoming worse as he continued to experience the occasional sharp tongue of the white-haired old man.
Just when he was ready to explode in anger, the white-haired old man went into another room. A few moments later, he came out with a sheepskin scroll.
As Gu Yu and Sun Qi looked on curiously, the white-haired old man unfolded the sheepskin scroll on the table.
Both of them looked over the scroll immediately.
There was a towering peak at the center of the sheepskin scroll, but what made them wonder was that the peak was divided into many parts and the area of each part of the peak was drawn with a ferocious demon.
“Did you see something?” the white-haired old man stroked his beard and asked seriously.
Gu Yu nodded, “If I walk up the Cliffs of Desperation, there will be a demon guard at every stop, so it is very dangerous.”
The white-haired old man shook his head, “All of these demons are dead, so there is no danger!”
Gu Yu was speechless.
He clenched his fists once again but Sun Qi held Gu Yu tightly and hinted that he must restrain his impulse to lash out in anger.
“So can you tell us why you showed us this picture scroll?” Gu Yu asked through gritted teeth.
At the same time, he was prepared to accept the possible next sentence from this sharp tongued white-haired old man, “Just for fun.”
“I just want to show you this sentence on the picture scroll!” the white-haired old man said while pointing at the small sentence to the bottom right side.
When Gu Yu and Sun Qi heard this, they moved their heads curiously toward the scroll.
However, Gu Yu and Sun Qi had never seen these words nor the archaic language before, hence they appeared rather confused.
Fortunately, with the existence of artifacts, the automatic detection started to translate, and the words on the picture scroll began to distort.
[I, Beiqi, swear that generations of my people will guard the Cliffs of Desperation, get rid of evil, and defend fate!]
“What does that mean?”
Both the man and dog looked confused as they raised their heads.
“It is a long story,” the white-haired old man sighed toward the sky.
“Then cut it short!” Gu Yu answered curtly.
“Do you know who I am?” the white-haired old man’s expression turned serious again.
This white-haired old man is downright evil!
Nevertheless, these kind of words only appeared in the hearts of Gu Yu and Sun Qi. They did not actually say anything and just shook their heads at the same time.
“I am the offspring of the King of Beiqi!” the white-haired old man said proudly.
After he finished, the white-haired old man thought that Gu Yu and Sun Qi would be surprised, but he discovered that both of them were just staring at him as if they were staring at a moron.
“What? You don’t believe me?”
Gu Yu and Sun Qi did not answer him this time, instead they just turned around together and walked to the door.
After dealing with him for such a long time, turns out he is just a fool!
“Both of you stop right there!” the white-haired old man was anxious when he saw that he had failed to show off.
“What?” both of them turned back slowly and said emotionlessly.
“Take a look at what this is!” the white-haired old man took out a greyish seal from his pocket.
Gu Yu and Sun Qi looked at each other and wanted to leave again but both of them turned back again suddenly.
[The seal of the King of Beiqi (Ancient)]: The creator of the Land of Beiqi, the seal of the King of Beiqi was made by the first King of Beiqi and symbolizes the supreme power and glory of the Land of Beiqi (Expired)
Both of them were shocked as they looked at the introduction of the seal of the King of Beiqi.
“But why it was expired?” Sun Qi was confused.
“Maybe because it’s an old edition so it can’t function anymore,” Gu Yu shook his head.
“Now do you believe me!” the white-haired old man said happily.
Both of them looked at each other and sat beside the bed again. They looked at the white-haired old man as they awaited his story.
When he saw them sitting down, the white-haired old man sighed, “It’s a long story!”
“Then make it short!” Both of them said together.
The white-haired old man rolled his eyes, “My ancestor was the creator of the Land of Beiqi. He governed the Land of Beiqi for around a few hundred thousand years. These Cliffs of Desperation were his burial ground and the place he defended all his life.”
“The demon you saw on the scroll was once a subordinate who held vigil for him and also implemented his will after his death. It was the top Demonic God who guarded the Land of Beiqi!”
“What is the top Demonic God? Is it powerful?” Gu Yu asked curiously.
“This Cliffs of Desperation were a single horn on the head of that Demonic God… amazing, right?” the white-haired old man was slightly displeased at how Gu Yu interrupted his story.
“Hiss!” Gu Yu and Sun Qi shuddered when they heard this.
They knew that the height of the Cliffs of Desperation could even touch the sky. So if this was just a horn on his head, they could not imagine how huge this Demonic God was. It can probably be described as blocking the sun and sky.
“This means that your ancestor defeated this Demonic God, sealed it here, and made his descendants guard it?”
“Impossible, even ten of my ancestors could not defeat this Demonic God,” the white-haired old man rolled his eyes.
“I don’t know the specifics as to why the Demonic God was sealed, but it is still not safe even if the Demonic God had been sealed as his demonic thoughts will slither out sometimes. It was precisely because my ancestors had to fight against the Demonic God’s demonic thoughts that he used up his last strength and passed on at these Cliffs of Desperation less than 100 years after defeating the demonic thought!”
“But how is this related to the difficulty of climbing this hill?” Gu Yu asked curiously.
“It is not about difficulty, it is simply that you cannot climb this hill!” the white-haired old man’s expression became more serious this time.
“I’m afraid that you guys will be eroded by the demonic thoughts of the summit’s Demonic God and robbed of your bodies in order to become a new sockpuppet for the Demonic God.”
“All the demons on this scroll were originally sent by my ancestors to stop anyone from climbing up this hill!”
Both Gu Yu and Sun Qi looked at each other, but their passion was burning like a fire inside.
“I’m warning you, don’t ascend the hill, or else having your bodies taken away would be a small problem. If you become the sockpuppet of the Demonic God, you will bring disaster on the Land of Beiqi.”
Facing the serious warning of the white-haired old man, Gu Yu and Sun Qi looked at each other again, then said in a righteous manner,
“Please don’t worry, for the sake of the safety of the Land of Beiqi, we will definitely not ascend this hill!”
