Chapter 16 — Dragon Ascension Scroll
Origin of chaosfire.
Those three words suddenly flashed in Yun Wu’s mind, but before she could react….. With a whoosh, her consciousness was swept into a queer space.
Caught off guard for a brief moment, she quickly recovered and began to survey her surroundings. Through a blanket of white fog, she saw a magnificent palace. When she was able to see clearly the ancient-looking words carved on the palace’s grand doors, the words caused her to feel a trace of fear.
The dawn of the world, the beginning of chaos—the world itself had essentially hailed from chaos…
Just what was going on? Why was she here?
Suddenly, an awe-inspiring voice boomed, “Spirit of the dead, you dare trespass the Pandemonium Palace! Impudence!” A dreadful oppressive force rushed forth to repress Yun Wu —who was still utterly confused— and forcibly brought her down to one knee.
She was slightly angered and indignant.
When did she ever trespass? She didn’t even know how she got here, goddammit.
“Who are you? Reveal yourself.” She looked around but saw no one.
“Hmph, I am none other than the General Guardian of Pandemonium Palace—that is to say, I am not someone the likes of an audacious rascal like you are worthy of seeing. I suggest you scurry back to wherever you came from before I lose my patience.”
The oppressive force increased in pressure until it became enough to press her entire body to the ground.
Yun Wu was instantly enraged.
For this ‘General Guardian’ to want her to kneel was already barely acceptable, but now he wanted her prostrate before him too? That was going too far.
She took a breath and clenched her teeth, resisting the oppressive force as she once again stood up straight.
“You… don’t push it. Don’t think you have the right to harass others just because you’re some sort of great general. Even a rabbit, when forced into a corner, can bite.”
“Hmph, you have but not a wisp of your soul left, yet you dare contend with me? You simply don’t know your limits!” The awe-inspiring voice manifested a whip from thin air, and it immediately slashed towards Yun Wu.
Coldness flashed in her eyes. She moved to dodge but was abruptly stunned by the realization that she had been rendered immobile.
Crash! The attack landed and mercilessly struck her feet, sending both of her knees to the ground.
She, Yun Wu, had never suffered such grievance before. She gave a cold snort and dragged her body up again.
“Looks like you’re pretty tough. Very well. Then, let’s see if your bones are tougher or if my whips are tougher!” Two more whips appeared, and together, all three whips joined to strike at Yun Wu.
Pah! Pah! Pah! The whips fell and easily sent her flying.
“Do you submit? If you submit, then kneel for me and kowtow. Then, I’ll spare your life.” The domineering voice rumbled. Yun Wu clutched her chest and spat out a mouthful of blood, feeling her entire body engulfed in pain.
When she heard those words, she lifted her head, faced the empty space, and gave a cold laugh.
“You little lowlife, what are you laughing about?” The voice carried with it a tinge of rage.
“Me? I’m laughing at you, you desperate son of a bitch, you want someone to kneel before you that badly? Why don’t you go erect a stele, gather some puppies, and allow them to worship you day and night? Yet you’re here bullying me, a little girl. Why aren’t you blushing? Don’t you think you’ve lost eighteen generations worth of face already?” Yun Wu mocked angrily, slowly rising from the ground.
An area of the space shook as an aura of rage pervaded the air. Clearly, her words had angered the Guardian.
“What a sharp tongue… Good, very good.”
It was at that moment, the surrounding fog grew dense and a round of oppressive force charged at Yun Wu from all four directions. Her expression changed slightly. Heavy pressure, comparable to tens of millions of gold bars, caused her internal organs to feel as though they were being crushed. She collapsed to the ground.
“How is it? Submit or not?”
“Submit? Submit my ass.” She spat. He wanted her to submit? In his dreams.
“Hmph!” The oppressive force increased once again, and a mouthful of blood sprayed from Yun Wu’s mouth. At this moment, the space between her brows began to glow with golden light, and soon after, a golden scroll suddenly materialized, floating in midair.
The golden scroll fully came to view, whereupon there came a thudding sound, followed by an astonished exclamation, “The Dragon Ascension Scroll? Why do you have the Dragon Ascension Scroll? You, you even got its approval?”
Dragon Ascension Scroll?
Yun Wu looked at the golden scroll floating before her, feeling great shock in her heart. Before her demise in her previous life, wasn’t this the scroll that dog couple had wanted to take from her? In that life, the last mission she had received was to obtain this ‘Dragon Ascension Scroll.’
According to legend, the Dragon Ascension Scroll contained records of all the events and treasures dating back to the dawn of chaos. The master of this scroll would become the master of the world.
The original customer had paid a hefty price for her to snatch the scroll from someone else, but neither she nor that customer would’ve imagined that that dog couple would betray her and that the scroll would then explode with her body.
Could it be that the reason she was able to traverse to this world was due to the Dragon Ascension Scroll? Every time her mind flashed with information, that information was provided by the Dragon Ascension Scroll?
Before she could finish sorting out her suspicions, the Dragon Ascension Scroll shone and lifted the oppressive force from her body. Then, the closed doors of the palace swung open, and a ray of golden light streaked into the Pandemonium Palace. It was the scroll.
Suddenly, Yun Wu was filled with a strange feeling. It was as if she had intentionally sought out and arrived at this place as if there was not unnatural about the entire situation, and that she was here for the sole reason of claiming the Pandemonium Palace as her own.
VIN: Yun Wu’s character is surfacing…
And just imagine the palace in a completely white background.
