Hearing Thomas’ words, Scott raised his eyebrows. He didn’t expect such a mysterious thing in the world.
Independently from this world, Scott has heard of such a statement for the first time.
“At present, we don’t know much about Cangyuan World. We only know that the people there are very strong. Reaching Unrealm is just the threshold for the strong. People at Unrealm was far from being regarded as a strong expert.” Thomas continued.
Scott hurriedly let him stop, and said, “Enough, this is the secret of the Pantheon, I had better know less.”
Thomas smiled and said, “You have been identified by me as the candidate for the next lord of the Pantheon. You will need to know these things sooner or later.”
Scott was taken aback for a moment, and said in doubt, “The candidate for the next lord? Why don’t I know about this?”
“Originally, I planned to tell you this when you become stronger, but what I didn’t expect is that your strength will directly reach the advanced stage of sublimation. At this level, you are more than enough to be the Lord of the Pantheon, so it’s okay to tell you now,” Thomas said with a smile.
“Sorry, I’m not interested in the position of the lord, you should go find someone else.” Scott directly rejected Thomas.
“After experiencing this incident, do you still think you can be as free and at ease as before?” Thomas stared at Scott and asked.
Hearing Thomas’ question, Scott also sighed helplessly.
With the deepening of his understanding of the world, Scott did discover that there were many things that was contrary to what he expected.
For example, this time Scott could really sit idly by when the people from Cangyuan World sneaked in, but if it weren’t for his shots, Thomas might be killed this time.
And the mysterious person in Cangyuan World would puppet at Unrealm, making this world be in trouble.
At that time, how could his wife and daughter continue to lead a comfortable and stable life.
So even if it’s just for his wife and daughter, he had to do it.
Scott understood why Thomas would choose him to be the next lord of the Pantheon. Although he was unwilling to accept it, this was a fact that he could not refuse.
“Now you can take charge as chief with your strength. If it weren’t for you this time, I would be killed.” Thomas looked at Scott, “So I have decided to officially appoint you as the lord of the Pantheon.”
With that, Thomas took out a token from his clothes and handed it to Scott.
“Although you are still very young and you are not yet qualified to be the Lord of the Pantheon in terms of age, strength means everything. In addition, you are more stable than some people who have lived for hundreds of years, So I am very relieved to pass on the throne of the Lord of the Pantheon to you.”
Scott looked at the token on the table with a stunned look, and asked, “Even if you really want me to be the lord of the Pantheon, you don’t need to give me the order now.”
Thomas smiled and said, “This incident has made me understand my current situation. I am already old, and once a special situation arises, I may not even be able to survive. Thus, I have to give up the position of the Lord of the Pantheon as early as possible.”
Hearing what Thomas said, Scott was also a little helpless. He understood what Thomas was thinking. Although he didn’t want to admit it, it was indeed a fact.
“Don’t worry, I’m just clarifying this matter now. You can still continue to be at ease. As long as I am still alive, I will help you deal with the affairs of the temples, but when I die, the burden of managing the Pantheon will fall on you.” Thomas continued.
This time Scott did not refuse, but silently nodded, and put away the token.
The stronger he was, the greater the responsibility was.
Scott knew this very well. What’s more, he did this to give Edith and Sherry a stable life. He would naturally not mind if other people could benefit from it.
“As for the Cangyuan World, you can go to the mountain where I am located after you return to the headquarters of the Pantheon this time and find an elder. He will tell you the details of the Cangyuan World,” Thomas said.
“Aren’t you going back?” Scott asked.
“That person opened a passageway and came here. This passageway will definitely not disappear easily. I have to find this passageway so that no one from Cangyuan World will come,” Thomas replied.
Scott nodded, it was indeed a very important thing.
“Of course, you don’t have to be too nervous. It’s not easy to open a passageway. It’s impossible for the people of Cangyuan World to come to Earth in a short time. Just do what you should do. Don’t be affected by this,” Thomas added again.
“I see.” Scott answered Thomas solemnly.
Thomas smiled and patted Scott on the shoulder, and said, “This feeling of handing over the burden to others is really good. It seems that I can be a little more relaxed in the future.”
Scott rolled his eyes at him, and said nothing.
At this time Natasha was wearing a hat and carrying a basket in her hand, and walked towards them.
“Come and taste the fruits I just picked in the orchard. These are all grown by myself and are very delicious.” Natasha smiled and looked at the two people.
Bath of them walked over wisely and tasted the fruit, and praised the deliciousness of these fruits.
“Natasha, if nothing happens, we should leave soon,” Scott said while eating the fruit that Natasha picked.
When Natasha heard Scott’s words, the movement in her hand stopped.
“Finally, you are leaving.” Natasha muttered.
“Thank you very much for taking care of us during this period of time. As long as you practice the deep breathing I taught you regularly every day, it won’t take long for you to become healthy like a normal person.” Scott continued.
Natasha nodded, but it was obvious that she didn’t want Scott to leave.
Although she had known that Scott taught her the method of deep breathing in order to be able to get in the banquet, Natasha had already developed a different kind of affection for Scott.
“It’s me who should be thankful. You saved my life. I should do all this,” Natasha replied Scott.
Seeing this girl’s distressed look, Scott smiled and said, “Don’t be frowning. There is no permanent banquet in the world. lam very happy to know you.”
Natasha raised her head, her lips moved, as if she wanted to say something.
She wanted to tell Scott that she not only wanted to know Scott, she also wanted to be with him and had an unforgettable memory with him.
However, in the end she did not speak, because she knew in her heart that these were just her delusions.
“I wish you all the best.” Natasha said, with a relieved smile on her face.
