Chapter 1242: The Secret That Was Covered by False Images (Part One)
Fei’s body shivered, and a trace of shock and depression flashed in his eyes.
“Could it be that there is a shocking secret hidden behind Emperor Yassin’s death?”
After all, Messi wasn’t someone who would lie to survive. The [God’s Son] of Barcelona had his pride, and he wouldn’t lie to stay alive. Even his nemesis, [Battle God] Ronaldo of Madrid had high praises for Messi and never tried to tarnish the latter’s reputation.
“Continue.” Fei was waiting for Messi to say more.
Messi grabbed the winecup before him and chugged the liquor in it. Then, he smiled and said, “This secret has been hidden in my mind for too long. You know that a person could easily become insane once holding a secret that could change the fate of the continent for too long… I have to start from more than 20 years ago. At that time, I was feeling great as I just stepped into the Demi-God Realm; I felt proud and invincible. I even wanted to challenge Continental Martial Saint Maradona to earn myself the title as the most powerful master on the continent.”
About 20 years ago, Messi was only about 20 years old, yet he entered the Demi-God Realm. He was above many masters since he broke the cultivation speed record in the last 1,000 years. With his shocking strength and momentum, it was normal for him to want to challenge Maradona who was the most powerful man alive.[Support the real translators and read on Noodletown Translations for free.]
“However, just as I was about to issue the challenge with confidence, a mysterious master came to me to challenge me. This battle took place in secret, and only the two of us know about it. At first, I thought that I could easily take care of this man. To my surprise, this mysterious figure’s strength was beyond my expectations. We fought for half a day, yet I couldn’t defeat him. In the end, I used my demi-godly strength for the first time…” While saying that, Messi shook his head with a bitter smile on his face. “Who could have expected that I would be the one to be defeated.”
Fei’s brows twisted; he seemed to have guessed who this mysterious master was.
“That is right. He was the Emperor of Zenit, Emperor Yassin who stated that he was inferior to no one,” Messi sighed and said, “To be honest, ever since I stepped into the Demi-Godly Realm, I thought that only the Pope of the Holy Church and the Continental Martial Saint could be my opponents. I disregarded all other masters on the continent. Even [Battle God] Ronaldo of Madrid got suppressed by me a little. I didn’t think that it was possible for the little emperor of a level 1 empire to defeat me.”
Messi looked reminiscent as he recalled what took place a long time ago.
Then, he continued, “I was unwilling to accept the result of the battle. At that time, Emperor Yassin was only at peak Burning Sun Realm, and he wasn’t a demi-god yet. However, he defeated me with a lower realm. Later, I challenged him more than ten times in secret, but I lost all of them. Then, I had to accept my defeats and promised him that I would do one thing for him.”
“Do what?” Fei was curious.
“I was curious at the time as well, but Yassin wasn’t willing to tell me. He only told me that when the time was right, he would tell me. However, during these many challenges, I admired his talent and character, and we became friends. It was at that time when I learned about the existence of Polluters for the first time,” Messi said slowly.
A glint flashed in Fei’s eyes, and he asked, “Emperor Yassin told you about them? So, Emperor Yassin knew about Polluters since long ago?”
