Versatile Mage - Chapter 3041
3041 Blood Temple (3)
The people prayed for Parthenon Temple’s protection. Suddenly, the blood streams at Parthenon Mountain converged together and poured down the gap of the mountain to form a bloody waterfall. This terrifying sight was revealed right before the mountain climbers!
Several dead bodies fell along the blood waterfall and into the valley. Countless people fainted on the spot upon seeing the horrific sight of the blood gushing out of the bodies.
It was a massacre!
A brutal massacre was going on in Parthenon Mountain!
People died in every section of the mountain trail. Some of the mountain trails were even covered in dead bodies!
Originally, the people thought a brutal assassin struck the crowd and that Parthenon Temple experts would arrest the murderer soon. However, they later realized there was more than one murderer among them!
The murderers were in the crowd. They made quick, clean kills and disappeared quickly. Perhaps to look for another target or hide somewhere else.
There were seals along the mountain path, making it difficult for the mountain climbers to cast magic. It was even more difficult to leave the ancient mountain path. All of them were at risk of being killed like lambs for slaughter. No one knew who would be next!
It was the first day of the Blessing Day at Parthenon Temple.
Blood rivers flowed in the middle of the forest. Lights shone brightly. Parthenon Temple was once as sacred as a fairyland, but it had turned into a hell of suffering in an instant!
Everything happened instantly. Those who were killed seemed to have been targeted for a long time. They were all killed simultaneously!
However, this sight, albeit having happened very quickly, left the people quaking in fear. They did not expect to see such a horrific sight at a place where such things were least likely to occur.
“It’s the Black Vatican. They attacked us. They are cursed beasts! They attacked Parthenon Temple on the first day of the Blessing Day! The birth of the Goddess must have terrified them. They are frustrated with the results released yesterday!” One of the mountain climbers cursed.
‘The Black Vatican targeted Parthenon Mountain. They went out of their way and killed the devoted mountain climbers for the sake of stopping the era of the New Goddess!’ Mo Jiaxin crouched on the ground like the rest of the panicked crowd.
It did not take long before the people from Parthenon Temple showed up.
The mass killing happened without warning. However, Parthenon Temple’s response to it was surprisingly fast. A panicked crowd would usually result in a stampede, but the members of Parthenon Temple took control of the situation.
They claimed that the murderers were arrested, and there would be no more deaths.
The female servants and sages’ Calming Magic worked perfectly. The people began to insult and curse the Black Vatican furiously.
For some reason, Mo Jiaxin felt as if everything had been rehearsed. The top management of Parthenon Temple seemed to know that a large group of people would be killed!
He could not help but recall the blind man. The blind man had told Mo Jiaxin he was a knight and also part of the Black Vatican.
‘What’s going on in the Parthenon Temple?’
“I hope Xinxia is okay,” muttered Mo Jiaxin. He sighed. “This will make things very difficult for her.”
Mo Jiaxin was not a Mage. He did not know how to perform magic. He also had no idea who Izisha was, let alone the fight between the Black Vatican and Parthenon Temple.
‘But, with such a drastic accident and as the ruler of Parthenon Temple, how would Ye Xinxia handle the situation?’ he wondered.
He remembered that when she was young, she cried the whole night over the death of a stray cat which she had been secretly feeding. She didn’t even know how to bury the poor cat.
However, right at this moment, so many people died on Parthenon Mountain…
At Goddess Peak, a hysterical scream rose from inside of the Hall Mother Pavilion. One could sense the screamer’s rage and mania from the scream.
“Ye Xinxia! Ye Xinxia!”
“She has given her orders to the executioners. After she finished taking the oath, she killed all of the members of the Black Vatican. The Blue Deacon, the Black Clergy, and the Gray Priest are not ready for defense. The knights ambushed them from the crowd and killed them!” said a monk in a robe.
“Where is she? Where is she now?!” Veins popped on Hall Mother, Pamise,’ face. She had felt so angry.
“I’m right here.” At the hall’s entrance, Ye Xinxia showed up in a white dress. She gently tugged up her dress that belonged to a Goddess and slowly walked to the Hall Mother Pavilion.
Hall Mother had to avoid showing up on the Blessing Day. This showed that the elder of Parthenon Temple, who was temporarily in charge of Parthenon Temple, was ready to hand over the authority to the new Goddess.
Hall Mother, Pamise, did not bother to show up during the Blessing Day, because she knew very well that the stage wasn’t just for Ye Xinxia, but also for the Black Vatican.
Hall Mother, Pamise, had not expected Ye Xinxia to kill the others. She, at the last, did not expect Ye Xinxia to do it in public.
Ye Xinxia had not only killed the Blue Deacon, but also the Black Clergy, the Red Cardinal, Chief Extraditor, and the Head Teacher!
Ye Xinxia killed those who assumed themselves as the members of the organizations.
Regardless of whether they were the church members from the Old Supreme Pontiff’s group or from Salan’s group, all were killed in public!
“Ye Xinxia, how dare you risk uprooting Parthenon Temple’s thousands of years of foundation to perish together with the Black Vatican?! Do you truly think you’ve done something great? Do you think you’ve done something right? You’re simply a fool!” Hall Mother, Pamise, trembled in anger.
“Hall Mother, don’t worry. I won’t let any of them survive,” said Ye Xinxia.
“How do you prove that the people you killed were guilty? You gave up your life and admitted that you’re the Supreme Pontiff. Hah! You’re the Goddess, once you admit that you are the Supreme Pontiff and obtain the list of the Black Vatican’s members, Parthenon Temple will also be destroyed. No one will believe in Parthenon Temple ever again. The members of Parthenon Temple will be rebuked and condemned because of a filthy and fallen Goddess like you! Parthenon Temple will exist only in name!” shouted Hall Mother, Pamise.
Ye Xinxia destroyed the Black Vatican. But she had also destroyed Parthenon Temple.
Parthenon Temple gave its blessing to the world, and it was far from the Black Vatican’s sinful and evil existence.
Hall Mother, Pamise, Salan, and Ye Chang gave Ye Xinxia the name list because they were convinced that Ye Xinxia would not sacrifice Parthenon Temple for the sake of a group of people!
But Ye Xinxia chose something similar to suicide to stop the malignant tumor from worsening.
That was what Ye Xinxia did today. She could not have been more of an idiot!
“You could have become the world’s most supreme individual. You could have brought great changes to the world. You could have gained greater controlling power and slowly cleanse the Black Vatican’s mark. You could have stifled the Black Vatican from their evil deeds using your identity as the Supreme Pontiff. You could have gradually transformed the Black Vatican into your own power. There were so many ways, but you chose the most foolish way!” Hall Mother, Pamise, even found it difficult to breathe.
“Hall Mother, you don’t have to worry about Parthenon Temple’s future anymore. It already has a “New Black Vatican” who has declared to the public that they will be responsible for the massacre. My knights are the ones who made the new organization,” said Ye Xinxia.
Ye Xinxia would not declare to the world about her identity as the Supreme Pontiff. If she belonged to the dark, the world would only become darker.
If she were an ordinary person or Parthenon Temple’s ordinary apprentice, she would have given up everything and fought the Black Vatican to death.
But she was a Goddess. She could not let Parthenon Temple be destroyed by her hands. That would be no different from letting the Black Vatican gain its victory.
She did not have to prove that those who were killed were the members of the Black Vatican.
All she had to do was to ask the “murderers” to declare themselves as the Black Vatican. The incident would then be considered a mass murder planned by the Black Vatican. She would also accept the world’s criticisms.
The people did not have to know the true identities of the “innocents” who had been killed. They were, after all, the Black Vatican’s Red Cardinals, the Blue Deacon, the Black Clergy, and the Gray Priest.
It was enough if she knew who they were.
