Chapter 1: The Truth Of Origin

Since time immemorial, there existed two types of beings: the Primordial Origin and Heaven and Earth.

We called them beings, but what they truly were, some sentient energy, that was able to gain consciousness.

Although they didn't know much stuff, there was something they were wholly aware of. They were different. There is no being like them. However, that wasn't the only thing they knew.

There was something that they understood, and that was a rivalry—one so intense, so innate, so primal. And the source of that rivalry. It was none other than their very existence.

This rivalry had lasted for a very long time, and thanks to it, they learned of emotions such as hate, despise, and many dark sentiments. But there weren't only dark emotions in them, as Primordial Origin was able to learn some other feelings such as pride, serenity, interest, satisfaction, and many more.

However, while Heaven and Earth was a powerful entity, it was nothing but a weakling to Primordial Origin, making its dark emotions powerful.

Primordial Origin, as its name indicates, was the Origin of everything, including Heaven and Earth. In truth, Heaven and Earth was nothing but an amalgamation of Primordial Origin that mutated and became its own entity. It was hell-bent on destroying its source, Primordial Origin.

Yet rarely had a fake ever possessed the ability to conquer its original self truly, and the same case was here.

Heaven and Earth failed to destroy Primordial Origin and become the most robust entity. However, because Heaven and Earth weren't resigned with its fate and still wanted to rebel against Primordial Origin, the only path laid out in front of it was, to seep into Primordial Origin and overcome it slowly.

It wanted to become the Almighty existence that Primordial Origin was, which drove its greed into overdrive—letting it take the risk of being entirely absorbed by Primordial Origin, and return to being one with it.

But even so, as it started losing its self of existence, Heaven and Earth had finally reached the core. The real source of Primordial Origin.

As planned, Heaven and Earth began to devour Primordial Origin from within. This had slowly allowed it to grow. With every second, it was inside, its strength increased, and more soul essence did it absorb. This, in turn, was slowly helping it to dominate Primordial Origin.

When it realized what's happening, it was already too late. However, Primordial Origin wouldn't give up that easily. It wouldn't allow its rival to win. Thus before Heaven and Earth were able to eat more, Primordial Origin gathered every part of its 'being' that it could collect and compressed it into a small shard the size of a hand.

That being the case, how could it be an ordinary shard. It was, after all, the shard housing the remaining soul of Primordial Origin.

Incidentally, Heaven and Earth seemed to have seen through Primordial Origin's plot and made its move.

More than half of Primordial Origin was lost, making its escape even more difficult, as its big and powerful soul was reduced to a quarter of its actual size.

Wounded and on the verge of ceasing to exist, Primordial Origin used what little control it still had on its core, and extracted a chunk of what is now, Heaven and Earth's soul.

Since this was its last-ditch effort at hoping to persist, Primordial Origin didn't dally and took this chunk of soul. In turn, the energy that makes it.

Primordial Origin and Heaven and Earth were at the end of the day, just energies with a soul. But, even though they have a soul, their main composition was still energy. Immediately, Primordial Origin fused the chunk that it was able to extract, blended it with the remaining quarter of a soul that it had.

Yet, something weird happened at that moment. Instead of becoming a part of Primordial Origin, the soul fragment that now had more substance changed forms and became something called [Chaos Harmony Scripture].

Despite what happened, Primordial Origin had no time to ponder what happened. It was, after all, in an uncertain situation. Sensing that it doesn't have much time left, Primordial Origin saw its demise nearing, making Chaos Harmony Scripture split a part of itself and recreate a similar shard to before. But this time, it had a will in it.

Primordial Origin wasn't able to save itself, but it was sure that if the message imprinted on the shard and the Chaos Harmony Scripture achieved their purpose, there was hope for revenge on Heaven and Earth.

On the run and being nothing but remains of energy and essence that signify Primordial Origin's existence, the shard, and the mantra moved and fled throughout the Universe.

Due to their conflict, Heaven and Earth, and Primordial Origin weren't able to explore the vast Universe that houses them. This gave the remnants of Primordial Origin a possibility, a chance to survive.

***

A long time after that, the pieces of Primordial Origin were almost out of energy and about to die. Before that happened, though, they felt a tug in their being, prompting them to go to a place. Following the pull, they arrived at a place they had never visited before.

It was a planet that seemed to have invisible chains surrounding it, locking its existence from the outside world. Nearing the place, the shard and the weird scroll felt the tug that they felt before, intensifies.

It was as if they always had the ability, the two remnants of Primordial Origin fused again. But this time, they became a key that fit precisely in the lock, chaining the planet. The lock materialized when they neared it. This allowed them to enter the chained world.

When the key entered the closed off-planet, a white light encompassed it, making the inhabitants of that world, strong or weak close their eyes. It was as if looking at the white light was a blasphemy.

When the light dimmed, the most potent existences in that world were able to sense terrifying energy, never felt before, coming from the place the light ended. Yet before they could check its whereabouts, or what it was. It disappeared as quickly as it emerged.

Unknown to these beings, the energy didn't disappear. Instead, it split itself into three parts: the shard, the Chaos Harmony scripture, while the last one was eerie red-colored energy that entered the other two, turning them the same shade of red for a moment, before returning them to their original transparent colors.

Subsequently, the shard and the mantra seemed to lose their energies. Finally, they went to the spot where they felt the most danger was. They entered a cave before lying down and rested.

    Hmm this might be considered a spoiler but you will see in a couple of chapters that the universe he is in isn’t a cultivation world ( for now) since it’s a cultivation you will see cultivation and about the smart enemies don’t worry I totally agree on it and that’s why I will make them smart

    I want to rewrite my last comment. Getting ideas from readers is good. The more ideas the better. But especially in topics like art the personal taste is a mayor factor. So changing one thing to something different just because a reader recommends it isn't always good. Of course objectively better writing stiles exist. And if you take lessons from experienced writers then it is worth gold. But always take recommendations from readers with a grain of salt. Only apply stuff you actually think is an improvement. If you are not confident on a topic just go with your gut feeling and write new chapters. Finishing a book is a huge achievement that few people can pull off. No matter how good or bad the book is. If you think your first chapters are too bad compared to the following ones then you can rewrite them. But only do it if you think that makes you more likely to finish the entirety of the book. Having a progression of writing stile and skill isn't a bad thing for ******* writers.
