She Shocks The Whole World After Retirement - Chapter 225
Chapter 225 Sheng Xiao’s Crazy Idea
They had thought that the far north was a barren wasteland.
But when they reached the extreme north, everyone realized that the terrain here was flat and the ground was filled with a type of black flower.
The flower had no leaves and only roots. Each petal was the size of an adult’s palm. When the five petals were combined, the flower looked incomparably huge.
In the middle of each flower, there was a stamen as thick as a pinky finger. The stamen was dark red. These black flowers danced in the wind, and their roots were tough, so they could not be blown away.
As they looked at the black flowers that filled the mountains, everyone’s reactions were somewhat slow.
Sheng Xiao blocked his sense of smell immediately and took an anti-poison pill. He told everyone, “These are Terpsichorean Flowers. They are special products from the far north. They are poisonous. Those who are slightly poisoned will hallucinate. Those who are seriously poisoned will get lost in this sea of flowers and become fertilizer for them.”
Hearing that, everyone blocked their sense of smell immediately. They, afraid that they would become fertilizer for the flowers, took anti-poison pills just like Sheng Xiao.

Everyone stood in the middle of the wasteland and looked around, but they did not see the Central Pagoda. Donor spread his wings and flew into the deep sky. Soon, he landed and pointed to the northwest. “Over there.”
He looked excited, as if he had seen something extraordinary.
Sheng Xiao asked, “Prince Donor, what did you see?”
Donor shook his head and sighed excitedly. “What a high tower. I think it should be called Skysplit Tower. It really leads to the heavens.”
Hearing that, Sheng Xiao took out his sword and flew northwest.
Seeing this, everyone followed suit. Because the elves had wings on their backs, they could fly directly without riding their swords.
The hundred or so beast tamers quickly flew to the northwest corner. After flying for an hour, they passed over a set of hills and saw the Central Pagoda.
On a vast and boundless plain, the black flowers swayed in the cold wind, and a towering pagoda that reached the clouds stood at the center of the plain.
The bottom third of the tower was clearly visible, and the top two-thirds of the tower was hidden in a black cloud. No one could see its true appearance.
The huge pagoda was cone-shaped. The higher one went, the narrower the pagoda became.
Sheng Xiao and the others landed under the Central Pagoda. It was only when they looked up that they realized that they were almost two meters tall. They were not even one-tenth the height of the first floor of the Central Pagoda!
This tower was indeed huge!
“Ssss ~” Someone hissed softly.
Someone exclaimed, “Can humans construct such a high tower?”
“Does anyone know when the Central Pagoda was built?”
“I’m not sure.”
At this moment, Donor suddenly said, “According to the records, the Central Pagoda’s history goes as far back as when the first Beast Tamer awakened on the Holy Spirit Continent.”
The first Beast Tamer on the Holy Spirit Continent had awakened ten thousand years ago.
Sheng Xiao said, “That’s not the case.”
Donor glared at Sheng Xiao and said, “Then tell me, how long has the tower been built for?”
Everyone turned to look at Sheng Xiao.
Sheng Xiao looked up at the huge pagoda above his head. He said, “There was no Beast Tamer on the Holy Spirit Continent. It was only when the Prime Master Goldfeather came to the Holy Spirit Continent through a Time Gate 10,000 years ago that something changed. Prime Master Goldfeather opened an independent space and created the Divine Realm Academy. He wandered around the continent for more than a hundred years and helped countless Beast Tamers awaken. Only then did the Holy Spirit Continent enter the era of Beast Tamers.”
Donor did not retort. It was obvious that Sheng Xiao was telling the truth. Sheng Xiao said, “According to the records, ten thousand years ago, Prime Master Goldfeather passed through the Time Gate and arrived at the Holy Spirit Continent. The place where he landed was the Central Pagoda in the far north. From this, it can be seen that the Central Pagoda existed before that.”
Feng Tang said, “I saw this piece of information. Junior Sheng is right.”
Donor pursed his lips and said, “Ten thousand years ago, our Holy Spirit Continent developed very slowly and our technology was quite backward. Such a huge tower was not something that people from that era could build.”
Feng Tang added, “In this era, I’m afraid we won’t be able to build it either.”
Who built this tower?
Sheng Xiao made a bold guess. “Perhaps this pagoda has existed for as long as the Holy Spirit Continent has existed.”
“Impossible!” Donor subconsciously retorted. “How could someone have built such a thing back then?”
Sheng Xiao sneered. “Who said that it’s man-made?”
Donor said, “What do you mean?”
The others looked at Sheng Xiao in confusion. “Young Master Sheng, if it’s not man-made, can it be God-made?”
Sheng Xiao stared at the Central Pagoda. He murmured, “Why can’t it be created by God?”
Everyone looked at Sheng Xiao as if he was a lunatic. “Young Master Sheng, there is no God in this world. Everyone knows that.”
“Why is there no God?” Sheng Xiao’s gaze suddenly became fervent. He said, “Have you forgotten that there was a God in the three thousand worlds?”
Donor’s eyes lit up as he cried out in shock, “It’s a Divine Master!”
Everyone shut their mouths.
Feng Tang grabbed Sheng Xiao’s hand and asked, “Junior Sheng, are you saying that our world might be created by a Divine Master?”
Sheng Xiao said nothing.
He looked up at the dark clouds covering the tower above him and suddenly fell into a surreal state.
Where did this world come from?
Where did this Central Pagoda come from?
Did God really not exist anymore?
Sheng Xiao stared at the black mist. Unknowingly, his consciousness became disoriented. Sheng Xiao did not notice that there were faint golden rays entering his body from all directions.
Donor was shocked.
“What is this?” He stared at the light that was pouring into Sheng Xiao’s body. He looked confused. “What is Sheng Xiao doing?”
Feng Tang was also shocked. “Junior Sheng!”
Feng Tang reached out to pull Sheng Xiao back, but he did not move.
Feng Tang guessed something. He let go of Sheng Xiao’s hand and looked up to explain to Donor and the others. “Don’t disturb him. He’s comprehending.”
Hearing this, Donor looked uncomfortable, as if he had eaten a fly.
Sheng Xiao managed to comprehend something under such circumstances. His cultivation talent was really enviable.
His mind was in a state of chaos. Sheng Xiao felt like he was being pulled into another world, and his body was spinning. He only landed on the ground after a long time.
Sheng Xiao opened his eyes and found himself in a strange world.
There was only a desert here. There were no flowers or trees. There were no humans or beasts. When one looked around, they was only yellow sand!
In the sky, the scorching sun was at the top, and his figure was enveloped by a colossus.
Sheng Xiao suddenly turned around when he realized that there was a huge creature behind him. He saw a tower that was exactly the same as the Central Pagoda!
Sheng Xiao was stunned.
“Is this… the Central Pagoda
What was going on?
Sheng Xiao pushed open the door and walked in. He saw that the walls of the tower were clean. There was nothing there. The tower was very high, but there was no path to the second floor.
Where was this?!
Sheng Xiao walked out of the Central Pagoda and into the desert alone. He walked further and further away. He was exhausted but he could not get out of the desert.
During the entire process, he didn’t see a single blade of grass or tree. In this desolate world, he was the only living thing.
Sheng Xiao walked in the desert for a long time. But, he could not find a way to leave this world. So, he sat cross-legged on the ground and started to comprehend the technique Myriad Slash. He wanted to see what this world wanted to do to him.
Time passed by unknowingly. When Sheng Xiao felt that his spiritual power was about to run out, the ground beneath him suddenly shook.
Sheng Xiao opened his eyes and saw the desert in the distance crumbling.
He was forced to stand up, and the soil beneath his feet disappeared bit by bit. Soon, the entire world became desolate, and he stood in the void like an explorer floating in the universe.
Suddenly, a powerful energy dragged him out of this world.
When Sheng Xiao regained consciousness, he found himself back in the Holy Spirit Continent. Beside him, Prince Donor was chattering. “How long will he take to comprehend it? The door of the tower is about to open!”
“Why don’t we go in first and ignore him?!”
Feng Tang was about to persuade Donor when Sheng Xiao opened his eyes.
Feng Tang shouted in surprise, “Junior Sheng, you’re awake!”
