Read Black Tech Internet Cafe System Chapter 911 Fuxi’s Connate Eight Trigrams!
For the whole day, most of the players in the shops were watching the newly released Investiture of the Gods.
On the morning of the next day, a large group of people walked in as soon as the shop opened. After finding seats to sit down, they began to talk about the new TV Series eagerly.
“Sister Su, did you finish Investiture of the Gods yesterday?” With a mug of Cappuccino in his hand, Song Qingfeng hadn’t even taken a seat yet. Seeing an acquaintance nearby, he began to talk with her. “I just came back from my family and haven’t watched it yet. Is it good?”
“Yesterday, I just watched the Shang Dynasty go corrupt. My goodness! You can’t imagine how powerful the Shang Dynasty is! Do you remember Pagoda Bearer Devaraja Li, the grand general who led an army to surround and attack Flower Fruit Mountain and later did many favors for the Great Sage in Journey to the West?” Su Tianji said, “He’s in Investiture of the Gods; he’s only a marshal in the Shang Dynasty!”
“F*ck?!” About to turn on Investiture of the Gods, Song Qingfeng was startled and shouted, “Then, who is the emperor!? Is he the Great Jade Emperor?”
“I don’t think so,” Su Tianji said.
“I wonder if some more powerful immortals are acting as officials in the Shang Dynasty!” Shen Qingqing said, “Goddess Nuwa is so powerful, but when King Zhou read the lewd poem, she didn’t dare to touch one hair of his, at least on the surface.”
“What…? Isn’t Nuwa the primeval sage? The one who patched up the sky…? In Journey to the West, even the small Jin River Dragon King dared to take the emperor’s life.”
“Who’s the most powerful person in the Shang Dynasty? Is there anyone more powerful than Pagoda Bearer Devaraja Li?”
“I don’t know. Right now, there’s a man named Huang Feihu, and his title is King Wucheng. I don’t think he showed up in Journey to the West. There’s also a Grand Preceptor Wen who is outside suppressing rebellions.”
“Huh? Did these people appear in Journey to the West? Are they more powerful than Devaraja Li?” After all, Song Qingfeng and the others had only watched Journey to the West and knew that the gods had different powers.
“I can’t talk with you guys now. I’ve got to watch it!” Seeing that Investiture of the Gods had begun on her screen, Shen Qingqing was eager to find answers to her questions.
Hearing her words, the others also stopped their chat and entered the magnificent and miraculous mythical world in the primeval times.
“Qingqing, do you want to watch it together?” Su Tianji and the others also put on their virtual reality headsets and began to watch today’s new episodes of Investiture of the Gods.
“Yes! Yes! Yes! Being tied to a blazing metal pillar is so scary that I almost had a nightmare last night.”
Remembering yesterday’s experience, the girls decided to watch the new episodes together, afraid that Su Daji would invent some new frightening torture methods.
“What’s that…!?” Song Qingfeng, who hadn’t watched the TV Series yesterday, looked at them in bafflement.
At this moment, they stepped on the land in Kunlun Mountain which was covered in white snow and ice that were tens of thousands of years old. The terrain was different from the Kunlun that they saw in the Legend of Sword and Fairy, which was way later in the timeline. Auspicious clouds and mists rose, and purple clouds floated around while countless immortal lights shot out from the immortal palace at the Kirin Cliff.
It was a prosperous immortal scene that no words could describe.
After entering the palace, the viewers saw the Primeval Lord of Heaven quietly sitting with his eyes closed on the Eight Treasure Cloud Light Platform.
They had never seen this immortal before. He didn’t look solemn or majestic, but they had an indescribable feeling when they saw him, and a sense of respect and fear hit them abruptly.
This feeling was even more intense than the feeling that they had when they saw Patriarch Subodhi on the Mountain of Heart and Mind.
“Who… is this immortal?!” Su Tianji sensed it more since she had learned the Palm Thunder at the Mountain of Heart and Mind and used it to block true immortals with only a mortal’s cultivation strength!
The indescribable sense of respect and fear that this old immortal induced in her was even stronger than Patriarch Subodhi!?
She couldn’t imagine what realm this immortal had reached.
“Master, what kind of an immortal is the Primeval Lord of Heaven…?” Fenghua and Yuexin looked horrified as they thought about the situation, and so did Shen Qingqing and Xu Zixin, who were watching the TV Series with them.
Something more astonishing came…
“There are two other deities on the same level as the Primeval Lord of Heaven?!”
It was hard to imagine. The people felt as if they were standing before a mountain that they couldn’t see the peak of. Feeling as tiny as dust before the grand mountain, they suddenly discovered that there were more taller mountains behind the first one, which they had thought was the tallest mountain in the world!
“Look! They are going to sent Jiang Shang down the mountain for the investiture of the gods!” The viewers were thrilled at the thought of the investiture of the gods. They were amazed that such an unimaginable thing would happen in the primeval Huaxia.
While the Kunlun Mountain was peaceful and tranquil, the human world was in an uproar.
“King Zhou has killed two major feudatories… half of the four big feudatories are gone…?”
“This West Feudatory Ji Chang is in danger…!”
At this moment, West Feudatory Ji Chang was doing divination for himself before he set off. The hexagrams showed that the Shang Dynasty had only 28 years left. Fei Zhong and You Hun, two evil officials, would die violent deaths while West Feudatory Ji Chang would have a natural and peaceful end.
“Is this prediction accurate or not?!” The viewers exchanged a look. It would be fine if the prediction was kept a secret. However, the two evil officials, Fei Zhong and You Hun, heard of it, which worried the viewers.
After all, it was taboo for heavenly secrets to be leaked. More importantly, the prediction was leaked to King Zhou, who had killed two major feudatories.
They continued to watch as King Wen (Ji Chang) was imprisoned, and he derived the connate 64 hexagrams from the connate eight trigrams. Later, he was actually released and returned to his homeland with glory. Then, King Zhou went back on his words and wanted to kill King Wen. The ups and downs of the story were thrilling.
At Lintong Fortress, tens of thousands of soldiers chased after King Wen with thunderous shouts. He was about to reach the border of West Zhou when they caught up with him. Then, a figure descended from the sky with wind and lightning energy on his wings, and he stood before the tens of thousands of soldiers!
[TL Note: King Zhou and the West Zhou aren’t related. Even though they are all pronounced Zhou, the actual Chinese characters are different.]
With his eyes big like bronze bells with lightning energy flashing inside, he was ‘the first one with wind and lightning energy on his wings and who inspired descendants with countless changes!’
“Leizhenzi! My goodness-!” Remembering the foreshadowing where West Feudatory Ji Chang had saved an abandoned infant in a thunderstorm, the audience exclaimed in elation.
[TL Note: Leizhenzi is a character featured within the famed classic Chinese novel Investiture of the Gods. Leizhenzi is a celestial being that had been created by a certain great thunderstorm at Mount Swallow. He is also known as Thunder-quaker.]
“King Zhou couldn’t kill him! My goodness… his divination was right!”
“I’ll watch that Fuxi Eight Trigrams again. It is amazing… such accurate predictions were made!”
Su Tianji said immediately.
Then, she began to watch Investiture of the Gods for the second time.
At this moment, many other people also went back to watch the extremely mysterious Eight-Trigram Pattern with eager eyes.
Especially, the cultivators such as Fairy Qing Yun who exceled in divination immediately went back to watch the process again. “Fuxi Eight Trigram… Fuxi!?”
She suddenly widened her eyes in amazement. “Is it the origin of the divination and the Zhou Yi Technique in the legendary land of Huaxia!?”
Even the weak-looking feudatory knows such powerful stuff?!
