Chapter 625: Reunification!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
After entering the Celestial Wonders World, although Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao and the rest were eager to explore this unknown world, to remain prudent, they did not separate from one another. On the other hand, they advanced together.
After a period of exploration, they could confirm that the spiritual energy in the Celestial Wonders World was not exactly very nourishing. It was around the same as the situation in the Greater World. It was not comparable to Mount Yujing, Mount Baiyun, Mount Shu, Xiling City and Tianjing.
But in this Middle World, there were a few places that gathered large amounts of spiritual energy. As a result, many valuable treasures were nurtured.
The Water Marrow Crystal was one of them. It was probably not even the most valuable of them all in the Celestial Wonders World.
Since the Celestial Wonders World had never been explored before, the resources were never consumed. There was bound to be many good stuff to be discovered.
Especially since there was no one in this world, most of the resources should be intact.
As Shi Tianhao and the rest were prepared to continue their exploration, they felt a vibration of power from the boundaries of the world. It seemed as if a hole had appeared somewhere. This meant that the Celestial Wonders World had surfaced another boundary pathway.
Following that, there was a strong vibration of mana that swept across the place. That was a motion that could only be initiated when Immortal Soul Stage cultivators battled.
The few of them quickly rushed towards the spot where the fight ensued. At the same time, they passed news to the Virtuous Zen Master who was guarding the opening of the boundary pathway. They also reported to Lin Feng who was far away at Mount Yujing.
“Tianhao feels weird?” Lin Feng received Zhu Yi’s message. He was not really bothered about the people from the Hall of the Dead. Rather, he was curious as to who could make Shi Tianhao develop such a weird feeling.
“Mm, maybe it’s a blessing and not a misfortune…” Lin Feng thought for a moment and said, “Go and settle it appropriately.”
After ending his communication with Lin Feng, Zhu Yi followed Shi Tianhao and the rest as they flew across space. They travelled across the Celestial Wonders World and arrived at the scene of the battle on the other side of the Celestial Wonders World. Right now, the battle was at its most intense stage.
The three envoys of the Hall of the Dead had stripped off their human form and revealed their Immortal Soul Avatars. They existed as roulettes. As the roulettes spun, they resembled the cycle of life.
At the bottom of the roulettes, there were auras of death that were exuded.
Within the roulettes, streaks of grey light spurted out and they intersected. This caused the entire space to be dyed grey in color.
Amidst the grey space, a bronze bell floated in mid-space and kept on ringing. Streaks and streaks of light spread in all directions, with the bell as their center.
Standing from far away, just by hearing the sound of the bell caused Yang Qing to turn pale. He groaned and felt like fainting.
He only felt that his head was throbbing and his soul was almost going to be out of control and leave his body.
Zhu Yi and the rest did not look good either. They raised their eyes to look at the bronze bell, “It’s a magic treasure!”
They were not the targets of the bronze bell, but were already feeling uncomfortable.
At this point, under the grey skies, a white light dragon surrounded by black gas was facing this Soul-Shaking Bell.
The Soul-Shaking Bell was a magic treasure cultivated by the Hall of the Dead. As the bell sounded, it shook the universe, destroying the souls of others. The radius in which it attacked was very vast and it was a magic treasure that was very powerful. After it was cultivated, many powerful cultivators had fallen against it, as they souls were destroyed.
The real power of this treasure was not in its sound, but the radiances that were spread out along with the sounds of the bell.
Anywhere that these radiances passed would be shook, as if they were being cleaned.
But the dragon was ferocious, especially the black gas surrounding it. It was domineering. As it faced the radiances, it did not cave in.
The black gas surrounded the radiances and the claws of the dragon scratched. Streaks of golden-white radiance flashed across, as if they were invincible soldiers, and they cracked void space, destroying the radiances.
In the grey skies, there was the continuous fall of dull radiance that resembled chains which wanted to restrain the white light dragon. They were used to complement the attack of the Soul-Shaking Bell.
The three Immortal Soul Stage Elders attacked together. Along with a merciless magic treasure, they gave the white light dragon immense pressure.
The golden light around its body flashed and the black gas rumbled. As it attacked and defended at the same time, it destroyed the grey light and resisted the radiances of the Soul-Shaking Bell.
Even in the face of many enemies, the white light dragon was still fearless. It unleashed a loud roar and spat out a black iron cone.
This was a magic treasure Shi Zhongtian got from the Void Battleground. Once the iron cone appeared, a ferocious, deadly aura spread.
Boundless black gas spurted out from within and in an instant, the whole place was converted into a sea of black clouds, hiding the white light dragon.
The black gas that revolved around the dragon came from the same source as the iron cone. As both parties combined, the might of the dragon increased.
As the black gas clouds appeared, the already dark skies lost all signs of light. Night seemed to have descended.
Within the black gas clouds, there was a continuous flashing of crimson-red light. It was as if a streak of blood-red lightning had struck the place and threatened to tear apart void space.
The grey light that descended from the skies and the radiances from the Soul-Shaking Bell became denser, as they attacked the black gas clouds.
But the three envoys from the Hall of the Dead were still not happy. That was because they could clearly feel that within the black gas clouds, there was a frightening power that was building up.
As the grey lights intersected, there was a continuous change of light figures, converting into an illusory realm. Within this realm, the images that appeared were filled with colors. Countless events were initiated from there, but it still contained a sense of gloom and evil.
This realm created by the grey lights was extremely huge and sucked the spiritual energy of the Celestial Wonders World rapidly. The boundary of this realm and the boundary of the Celestial Wonders World twisted tremendously. The boundary of this realm started to blur out the boundaries of the Celestial Wonders World as it invaded, as if it wanted to drag the Celestial Wonders World within it.
Shi Tianhao and the rest lifted their heads and looked over. They saw that within the realm, it was as if there were millions of figures that existed. But they were not alive. They were spirits and souls.
The realm was like a beast that had opened its mouth, as it engulfed the black gas clouds.
As Shi Tianhao witnessed this scene, he felt anxious in his heart.
But very soon, the situation witnessed a reversal. The realm started to twist tremendously, and in the next moment, countless streaks of blood-red radiances shot out, expanding in all directions.
This realm was like a broken water bag that had been poked with many holes. The water within the bag flowed out through the holes.
At this point, this realm could not bear it anymore and collapsed.
The white light dragon roared as it burst out of it. The black iron cone floated above its head and streaks and streaks of blood-red lightning shot out. As this lightning was unleashed, a booming roar was heard.
The dragon leaped in front of one of the roulette and the black iron cone was used to resist the Soul-Shaking Bell. The dragon extended its claws and grabbed the roulette!
Amidst the flashing golden light, the roulette was torn apart. In an instant, the roulette was inflicted with countless damages and was due to be destroyed.
But at this point, a rusty, yellow, ancient bronze clock appeared above everyone’s heads. In this instant, an immense repressive force attacked the white light dragon.
At this point, the other two envoys of the Hall of the Dead surrounded and attacked the dragon from behind.
The white light dragon roared loudly and unleashed blood-red lightning from its body. The lightning surrounded the dragon body and made it look like a crimson red dragon.
As explosions ensued, the entire place was about to be destroyed. After forcefully releasing himself from the repression of the Soul-Repressing Clock, Shi Zhongtian escaped with the roulette in his hand before the other two envoys of the Hall of Dead could reach him.
A laughter resonated, “I have said before that I will capture one of you and interrogate you for news of Tianhao.”
The envoy that was captured revealed his human form. He turned pale and felt humiliated.
The remaining two were also depressed. Although they controlled the Soul-Shaking Bell and the Soul-Repressing Clock, they did not have the confidence as they faced the white light dragon.
From a distance, Yang Qing saw this scene and mumbled, “Powerful. As he faced the attack of three Immortal Soul Stage Elders and two magic treasures, not only did he not lose, he even captured one of them.”
Tuntun swallowed her saliva and did not speak. Zhu Yi and Wang Lin nodded their heads, “He is indeed extraordinary.”
“I was rushing back home and did not want to waste my time with all of you. But all of you looked down on me.” The white light dragon laughed, “Now tell me, how is my grandson?”
Inside the Void Battleground, Shi Zhongtian was trying to flee and did not want to fight. Thus, he did not use the black iron cone. Now, he unleashed everything and revealed his true abilities.
His Immortal Soul Stage Avatar, the white light dragon, was also wounded during the battle just now.
Victory, Killing and Capturing represented different level of difficulties. Under the encirclement of the enemies, he was still able to capture one of them, which was even more difficult. Though he was outnumbered, he stayed true to his promise that he would capture one of the envoys.
That was because he wanted to know what happened to his grandson, son and daughter.
However, the next thing that happened caused him to be shocked. The two envoys of the Hall of the Dead on the opposite looked at each other from afar and they did not speak. Instead, they turned around and escape.
From afar, a few Nascent Soul Stage cultivators approached. In the face of his enemies, Shi Zhongtian learnt how to be cautious. But as he was shocked now, he had to observe the people approaching him carefully.
Oh, one was a pure-blood Taotie. But it was a pity that a Taotie’s blood was not nourishing. Otherwise, he could kill it to give his grandson as a tonic.
There were a few human cultivators who were very young. Three of them were in the Nascent Soul Stage while one was in the Aurous Core Stage. For them to have such a cultivation at such an age, they were indeed exceptional. He had lived for so long, but never seen many of them before…
Especially one of them, who was only 13 or 14 years old, but had already formed the Nascent Soul. Not to even mention seeing someone like that, he had never even heard of someone like that…Oh, he looked rather charming. His brows, eyes and nose looked like Shi Zhongtian when he was younger…
Shi Zhongtian opened his eyes wide and Shi Tianhao stared at him with the same expression from afar. Unwittingly, Shi Zhongtian had stripped off his Immortal Soul Avatar and returned to his human form. Only his right hand remained as a claw as he grabbed one of the envoy.
One of them was old and the other was young. But they stared at each other for some time and the entire place was descended into silence.
