The Old Man
There were 13 Heavenly Realms, the 13 Heavenly Realms form the Heavenly World, and the Heavenly World encompasses all things within. But creation had just formed, the world was devoid of all things, it was an empty void. Joining hands with the Ancestral Dragons, beings that existed since the Primordial Beginnings, the Heavenly Spirits created the 5 original elements, fire, earth, metal, water, and wood.
The original elements or ”laws ” formed the land as well as countless sub-laws.
But it still felt lacking. Thus, the Ancestral Dragons used their blood essence to create an innumerable number of magical beasts, while the Heavenly Spirits used Qi to form and bless humanity.
Hundreds of thousands of years passed by in a flash, when the Ancestral Dragons fell into a deep slumber, the Heavenly Spirits realized the potential that life carried, and sought to prevent any being that can cultivate from surpassing themselves.
They made the tribulations. The so-called ”trials ” that one must overcome in order to prove that they are worthy of reaching for the higher ranks. 9 out of every 10 beings would die trying to reach the higher ranks. Life became a survival of the fittest, a constant fight for resources.
Almost everyone thought that the trials were necessary, for they were taught that the Heavens were just. Incapable of wrong. They thought tribulations sifted out the trash, the leeches, and tempered the strong.
But a select few thought overwise and were usually met with hostility when they were discovered. These talents either found out the truth themselves or indirectly through others. They seek to liberate the minds of the masses and free everyone from the clutches of the corrupt Heavens.
Eons went by, and countless people died. Some were killed by others. Some were lost to the passage of time. But a great many died trying to overcome their tribulations. Their souls seized by the Heavens and recreated into different beings. An endless cycle of torture.
Many more eons passed, and powerful beings rose and fell, withered and bloomed, but none were powerful enough to threaten the Heavens even slightly. They could only establish sects and oppress those weaker than themselves.
Several eons passed again, and a genius worthy of Heavens attention was born. The skies churned as they did everything in their power to prevent his rise to providence.
The youth cultivated and fought, leaving a trail of blood and bones in his wake. He dealt wounds to the untouchable Heavens and the sky bled. The Heavens were forced to change their Code in order to combat the genius.
10,000 years went by, even the talent that reached the realms above the Heavenly Monarchs lost to the tyrannical Heavens. His soul was doomed to wander and never reincarnate, forever suffering.
A few million years flew by. . .
”To think that there would exist an innate talent that surpasses mine ” Said an ethereal figure. It was an old man with a wizened face. Long gray hair and beard and wearing a white robe. His eyes dark with a hint of exhaustion. This was a man who knew the secrets of Heaven, and was the former Absolute, Feng Wu Di.
He floated in the air, invisible to any onlookers, and examined a little boy climbing a mountain.
Despite being several miles away from the boy, Feng Wu Di could clearly see the little figure struggling to get up the steep mountain. In the eyes of many, he would seem ordinary, but Wu Dis eyes transcend even the Heavens.
”How can such talent evade the probing of the Heavens? ” He sounded genuinely curious, for he knew nearly everything.
Wu Dis eyes shone with golden light ”A powerful draconic bloodline, much more powerful than even the purest of the Monarch Dragons ” Wu Di frowned in contemplation after his discovery. The Monarch Dragons are the most powerful dragons that were first created to rule by the Ancestral Dragons. Even with 100% purity, one can escape the Eyes of Heaven. Suddenly, his eyes widened as he recalled an incident just one million years ago. An incident that shook the 13 Heavens to its core. ”It can be. . . ”
Wu Dis eyes shone, the exhaustion was then replaced by glee, excitement, curiosity, and liveliness. ”Sheng Tian was it? You are the perfect candidate to become what I failed to achieve ” He threw his head back and laughed at the sky. ”Hahaha! Its about time the Heavens get what they deserve! Fear for your lives you **ing assholes! Soon you shall taste what life has experienced in your hands! ”
Wu Di looked back at the boy, still struggling to climb the rest of the mountain. In an instant, he teleported to the top and sat in a chair that appeared out of thin air. His attire changed and his appearance seemed to change even when his face did not. Wu Di now looked like a kind old man, like a doting grandfather waiting for his grandchild.
”Hurry young one, hurry for I will guide you to become Heavens Tribulation ”
