Chapter 202: Chapter 202 – Hero’s Legacy
Natural enemies were incredibly sensitive to each other.
When Ali sensed this group of demon king apostles’ negative faith energy, they had naturally also sensed his positive faith energy.
Positive faith energy and negative faith energy were completely opposite existences.
The former represented trust, gratitude, hope, and other positive emotions; the latter represented all kinds of negative emotions.
When these two powers were present, it was almost impossible for things to remain peaceful.
After all, for them to possess these different kinds of faith energy, it meant that their personalities were completely different.
It would be quite strange for them to be able to get along amicably.
As such, Ali always felt displeased when looking at Jacdo and his followers and always felt the urge to attack, while Jacdo’s apostles all felt killing intent towards Ali.
It could be said that if it wasn’t for Jacdo’s existence suppressing these apostles, they might have begun to fight with Ali as soon as they saw him.
Of course, with Ali’s strength, if they really dared to act against him, their outcome would be quite pitiful.
In actuality, the demon king apostles had decent strength.
To be able to become demon king apostles, they all had a lot of negative faith energy. Their personalities were all twisted, but they were all stronger than ordinary people.
Of course, while they were strong compared to ordinary people, they were nothing compared to Ali.
After all, what was the purpose of the hero? Wasn’t it to deal with evildoers like them?
As such, the demon king apostles and Ali were always looking for opportunities to get rid of the other side.
Jacdo watched all of this with great interest.
To him, this rare scene provided great flavor to his life.
Even if he did nothing, just watching this was quite amusing.
Of course, to him, Chen Heng was also quite interesting.
Staying here before the hero’s trial started seemed to be a good choice.
As he thought to himself, not too far away, a black demon bird flew out towards Jacdo. Before it could reach him, Jacdo’s massive aura slammed into it, causing it to fall from the air.
“Aiya… another prey.”
Jacdo turned and looked at the demon bird as he laughed.
Even though he did not take the initiative to act as the demon king, the source of all demon beasts, fighting demon beasts was incredibly simple for him.
As long as he slightly released his aura, those demon beasts would not be able to endure it and would directly die.
Behind him, the demon king apostles’ expressions were cold, and under Jacdo’s orders, they rushed up and began to fight with the demon beasts.
This was quite strange.
The demon beasts’ power originated from the demon king, and as the demon king, he had control over all demon beasts.
The demon king apostles also had some influence over demon beasts, and they often used the demon beasts to achieve their goals.
In the past, they had often controlled demon beasts to bring disasters to people.
However, now, under Jacdo’s orders, they had obediently put on armor and were raising their swords towards the demon beasts.
If this matter spread, no one would believe it.
Thinking to there, the demon king apostles all deeply sighed and gripped their swords tighter.
Soon, many demon beasts who should have been on the same side as the demon king apostles were killed.
“Everything looks quite good.” Chen Heng went around, sensing the changes in the town.
Most of the town had been cleaned up, and there were no longer any traces of demon beasts.
Even though it was still quite barren, it was better than when there had been demon beasts everywhere.
Chen Heng led his followers about as he nodded.
The team that Chen Heng used for demon beast expeditions had smashed through all the demon beast hordes that they had encountered.
This was to be expected.
After all, among them was the demon king, as well as a hero candidate.
Thus, the town was able to take back the outer regions into their control.
Of course, they had also achieved much in other areas.
Chen Heng had settled down a large number of refugees and set up many villages, slowly starting up crop production again.
After the demon disaster began, many agricultural practices had been put on hold.
The demon beasts would not let off any living creatures they came across; not only would all the livestock be killed, but the crops would be tainted as well.
As such, Chen Heng and his people used this time to start up crop production again; this was the most important thing.
Right now, the season for planting wheat had passed, so as Chen Heng walked about, he discovered many other crops that were suitable for the current climate.
Even though they could not compare to wheat, they were still good sources of food.
Many people moved about the town, working on the crops.
This kind of scene could not help but make people feel delighted, but Chen Heng did not feel much.
It was just that as this went on, the faith energy he had continued to increase, and it was now many times greater than before.
This meant that Chen Heng’s efforts had been quite effective.
After walking around the town and showing his face to the residents, Chen Heng began to head back to his residence.
As all of this happened, some things were silently happening in the background.
After two or so months, Chen Heng suddenly raised his head and looked towards the sky.
An immense throbbing appeared in his heart.
Chen Heng could see that in the distance, there was a crimson-red pillar of light rushing into the sky, standing between the heavens and the earth.
Positive faith energy representing hope and other positive emotions seemed to gather towards that pillar.
“This is…” Seeing this scene, Chen Heng’s expression became serious.
He had never felt such intense throbbing in his heart, making it so that he could not ignore it.
This feeling originated from his immense faith energy.
It was an attraction between faith energy, causing him to sense the massive amounts of faith energy gathering in the distance.
Following this, Chen Heng felt a mysterious feeling.
“The hero’s legacy…”
Chen Heng got down from his horse and pressed a hand against his chest.
This scene and that feeling in Chen Heng’s heart came from this world’s hero’s legacy.
By now, due to the demon disaster, this world’s faith energy had reached its peak, causing the hero’s legacy to appear.
This feeling was reminding all those with enough faith energy to head to the place of the hero’s legacy to go through the trial.
The one who passed the trial would be this age’s hero.
Ali suddenly came back to his senses from that feeling.
He looked at the pillar standing between the heavens and the earth as he looked to the side.
By his side, his friend James was also looking at him with a look of shock.
“You also sensed it?” the two of them spoke at the same time and laughed.
“As expected of my best friend.”
To be able to sense the hero’s legacy appearing, this meant that both of them had the qualifications to challenge the trial.
This signified many things.
This not only meant that the hero’s legacy acknowledged them, but that they had enough positive faith energy and were righteous people.
If that was not the case, they would not be able to sense the hero’s legacy.
Following this, Ali and James nodded and made a decision.
Within a room, Jacdo also raised his head and looked into the air.
“The hero’s legacy…”
Looking at the pillar and the bright light, a slight smile appeared on his face, “How nostalgic.”
Every time he awakened, he would see this scene.
Even though he had seen it many times, he still felt that it was quite grand.
This pillar contained the positive faith energy from the whole world; this was perhaps the most majestic scene in the world.
No matter how many times he saw it, he felt quite amazed.
Within the pillar, he could see many different scenes.
An innocent hope, parents’ deep love towards their child, and many other scenes of people feeling positive emotions.
The hero would bear all of these people’s hopes.
That was why he would be able to unleash great power and become one of this world’s main characters, fighting against the demon king who represented negative faith energy.
“A grand scene… but this time, it should be quite interesting.”
Jacdo thought of Chen Heng and smiled.
Different from the previous times, there was an extra variable in this hero’s trial.
Chen Heng was one of the most powerful outsiders he had ever seen, and it seemed that he had not even reached his peak yet.
Faith energy was a type of power, but it was also like a poison.
If one’s body was not strong enough, one would slowly be corrupted and turn into a different kind of existence.
Without enough potential, one would not be able to withstand such great faith energy.
The reason why the demon king and hero could was because they were creatures from this world. As such, they did not feel too much pressure in enduring this faith energy.
However, once they left this world, or if this world’s legacy found an owner, this kind of power would immediately disappear, making them the same as normal people.
When that time came, they would have to rely on their own bodies to withstand the corruption of faith energy.
Of course, that was all for the future.
Right now, Jacdo was still looking forward to how things would end this time.
Between the outsider Chen Heng and the hero candidate Chen Heng, who would win?
In actuality, it was not just Jacdo who was looking forward to this; others were the same.
“The hero’s trial is finally about to start.”
Looking at the pillar in the distance, Chen Heng lightly sighed.
Chen Heng had asked around and confirmed that most other people could not see it.
To ordinary people, nothing had changed.
As such, it seemed that one needed to fulfil certain conditions to see it.
Chen Heng guessed that in this town, apart from himself, only Ali and Jacdo would be able to see it.
Perhaps this was why there was not too much information on the hero’s trial; after all, if most people could not even see it, how could there be records on it?
To ordinary people, the hero of the age would just suddenly appear.
Chen Heng understood and put down his book and began to prepare.
“Let the others know that I will be going out for some time,” Chen Heng said softly to an attendant.
The attendant nodded and respectfully left.
Soon, only Chen Heng was left in the room.
However, he did not have any intention of leaving, as if he was waiting.
Soon, he heard someone knocking on the door.
“Please enter.” Chen Heng directly said.
The doors opened and Ali and James walked in.
“Mister Ed,” Ali and James walked before Chen Heng and respectfully greeted him.
“What is it?”
Looking at these two people, Chen Heng came to a realization and gave a slight smile, “You’re not resting? Why have you come here?”
“We’ve come to say goodbye.” Ali and James looked at each other before Ali spoke.
“Goodbye?” Chen Heng’s suspicions were confirmed but he still acted surprised, “What is it? Is everything fine? Why have you suddenly decided to leave?”
“It’s not because of Mister Ed,” Ali shook his head, looking quite apologetic, “It’s because of our own reasons.
“There are some things that we have to do, so we need to leave for a while. Please rest assured, after this is done, we will return someday.”
“It’s fine,” Chen Heng said as he shook his head and smiled, “Since you have things that you must do, then I won’t stop you, but let me know if you need anything. We are friends, so there’s no need to be courteous with me.”
Hearing this, both Ali and James felt quite touched and sighed.
Honestly speaking, if it wasn’t for the hero’s trial, they would not have wanted to leave.
They could learn many things here and could truly participate in rebuilding and help residents build better lives.
This was difficult to obtain in other places.
Moreover, Jacdo and the others were here.
If they left here, those evildoers were bound to cause trouble sooner or later.
