James could not discern the appearance of the mysterious man who appeared at the 108th Infinity City.
The man’s words confused James.
“What did he mean by that?
“Who exactly is he?”
James was lost in contemplation as he stood at the wall of Infinity City and watched the man disappear without a trace.
After some time, he put his thoughts aside. “That man told me there’s no need for me to leave the city since I’ve obtained the most valuable object in the Space-Time Portal. With my current strength and rank, I won’t be able to travel to the beginning of time when the universe was born.”
Then, he asked, “Sophie, should I leave?”
Sophie’s voice came from inside the Celestial Abode, “Yes, I think so. Although I’ve never been to the Infinity Cities and the Provenance, even I know that you can’t travel back in time to when the universe was born with your current strength.”
Since Sophie said the same thing, James did not linger for long. After all, he had already obtained the invincible providence.
Holding the token he received when he entered the Provenance in his hand, he crushed it into pieces.
The token radiated a white light that enveloped him. Then, he disappeared without a trace. At that moment, he could only feel his head spinning.
This lasted for ten seconds.
Then, he left the Infinity Cities of the Provenance and reappeared on Mount Bane.
Upon returning to Earth, James realized that there were many people gathered on Mount Bane. They were the Outsiders who also entered the Space-Time Portal.
Besides, there were glowing white lights all around them. Each light represented a cultivator’s return from the Provenance.
“Why is everyone back?”
James furrowed his eyebrows and scanned his surroundings.
At that moment, he spotted a woman wearing a black dress and hurriedly walked over to her, asking, “Marcello, you’re back as well. Did you not complete the challenge?”
Marcello looked at him and said, “I don’t understand. I entered a cave that stated that I can advance three Infinity Cities in a row once I leave the cave. However, before finding the exit, I’m suddenly back here again.”
James was confused.
“What the hell is going on?”
Marcello shook her head. She had no idea what was going on.
James scanned his surroundings.
More and more cultivators returned.
In less than ten minutes, Mount Bane was full of cultivators.
“Why am I back?”
“I haven’t gotten what I want!”
“I want to go back in!”
Many were puzzled.
Some cultivators tried entering the Space-Time Portal once more but to no avail.
Upon seeing this, James murmured, “Could this be caused by the fact that I obtained the Infinity Stele, the most important object of the Space-Time Portal?”
Marcello asked, “James, did you obtain the Infinity Stele?”
James collected himself and said smilingly, “No way!”
Marcello said, “Yeah, I figured.”
“Marcello, I’ll be heading back to Wyrmstead now. Let’s meet again some other day.”
James said goodbye to her.
“Get going, then. I’ll visit you when I’m free.”
She waved at him.
Then, James leaped into the air and flew in the direction of Wyrmstead.
As his strength was enormous and his True Energy majestic, his speed was extraordinary. Soon, he arrived at his destination.
At the moment, the Elite Eight and Blake Davis were in charge of Wyrmstead. Meanwhile, Delainey, Henry, the Blithe King, and Thea were in closed-door meditation in the Celestial Abode.
