Chapter 626: Nascent Soul Stopping Immortal Soul
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Although they just met for the first time, Shi Tianhao and Shi Zhongtian could feel the blood relationship between the both of them. They could confirm that they were related.
But because it was their first time meeting, and was one that happened so coincidentally, the two of them were a little lost.
Shi Zhongtian opened his mouth and looked at Shi Tianhao. He asked hesitantly, “Young man, what’s your name?”
He seemed a little uncomfortable.
Although he knew that the envoy of the Hall of the Dead had scammed him, he felt that he did not entirely lie to him. There should have been some truth in what he said. For example, Shi Tianyi might really have robbed Shi Tianhao’s Natural Supreme Tao Foundation.
While his grandson averted the disaster, Shi Zhongtian was still worried about his detailed condition. He was pressed to know the truth.
That was why he took a risk and captured the envoy of the Hall of the Dead. As he faced the three cultivators and the two magic treasures, Shi Zhongtian was also under a lot of pressure. If they really fought, he might be in danger of dying. After all, these envoys of the Hall of the Dead had powers beyond cultivators in the same realm.
As he captured one of them, Shi Zhongtian was also observing the movement of the other two cultivators. He was prepared for them to retaliate. To repress one Immortal Soul Stage cultivator and engage another two of them, the difficulty was high.
Shi Zhongtian had already thought of all this. If he really couldn’t take it, he would find an opportunity to escape. If it comes to the worst, he could just interrogate the envoy he captured and escape. He could just deal with the other two envoys in the future.
But he did not know that the two envoys would just flee after they saw Shi Tianhao and the rest.
Shi Zhongtian focused his attention on Shi Tianhao and the rest. Eventually, his gaze was fixed on Shi Tianhao.
Shi Tianhao looked at the elder in front of him who seemed slovenly but passionate.
He took in a deep breath and muttered, “My name is Shi Tianhao, are you…are you Shi Zhongtian?”
Shi Zhongtian’s eyes opened wider. After a while, he laughed loudly, “That’s right, that’s right, I am Shi Zhongtian!”
After he laughed finished, the expression on the elder’s face became more gentle, “Are you my Tianhao?”
After sizing up Shi Tianhao, he raved, “Your body, your realm, your powers are well beyond your father and I when we were your age!”
“Good! Good! Good! My grandson has grown into a powerful man. No one can bully you. Very good!”
Shi Zhongtian squeezed the envoy of the Hall of the Dead that was captured by him and he laughed, “You did lie to me. My Tianhao is standing in front of me, well and alive. Open your eyes and see!”
He quickly retrieved the white jade brocade box that he had and said to Shi Tianhao, “Tianhao, they are spiritual fruits from the Void Battleground. Although you have formed the Nascent Soul, consuming these fruits will still be beneficial for you.”
Shi Zhongtian looked at Shi Tianhao in front of him and felt extremely elated.
Because of his newborn grandson, Shi Zhongtian entered the Void Battleground to search for treasures. Eventually, he was trapped within it and could not escape. Although it was a blessing in disguise as he formed the Immortal Soul, to him, going back to his family to see his grandson was something he looked forward to more.
Now that they met, his grandson had already grown up. While he was excited, he was also confused.
As Shi Tianhao looked at his grandfather, he felt a little sour in his heart.
In his memory, he never had the image of his grandfather. He only knew such a person existed. After he was born, Shi Zhongtian disappeared into the Void Battleground.
His parents also disappeared into the Void Battleground as they looked for his grandfather. That was why he was viciously targeted by Shi Tianyi and his mother.
But Shi Tianhao did not lament about his grandfather. The elder in front of him might have formed the Immortal Soul, but he seemed to have undergone a lot of hardships in the Void Battleground. This was all because of Shi Tianhao.
Although he was unsure why Shi Zhongtian fought with the envoys of the Hall of the Dead, he heard his grandfather interrogating one of them who he captured. He realized that Shi Zhongtian did all this for him, even if he might be placed in grave danger/
Shi Tianyi was killed by him, the Yu Clan was destroyed and the Shi Clan relocated. Everything that he needed to settle was settled. What he really desired was family reunification.
As Shi Tianhao saw the elder who was excited and confused, but did not know what to do, Shi Tianhao could not help but laugh.
Shi Zhongtian was taken by surprise. For Shi Tianhao, he was also unsure of how to interact, as he faced this elder in front of him whose name he had only heard of before, but was willing to do anything for him.
The awkwardness they felt at this moment allowed the both of them to get closer to each other.
After seeing Shi Tianhao’s smile, Shi Zhongtian seemed to have sense the mood of his grandson. He felt a little amused and he revealed a smile on his face, “Rascal, did I scare you?”
Shi Tianhao laughed, “I am your grandson. Will I get so easily scared?”
Shi Zhongtian laughed loudly, “You are right!”
“Grandfather!” Shi Tianhao’s smile vanished slowly and tears appeared in his eyes. The accumulated emotions he felt could finally be vented. Once it started, it could not be stopped.
Shi Zhongtian opened his mouth wide and tears started to appear in his eyes too. “Tianhao…my Tianhao…”
He shook his head violently and looked up, mumbling, “Why are you crying….you can’t cry, can’t cry…”
As he looked at Shi Tianhao bowing down to him, Shi Zhongtian took a deep breath, but the tears couldn’t stop flowing. “No crying, no crying…damn it, no crying! The elder’s grandson was alive and had even grown up. The elder was happy!”
Shi Tianhao lifted his head and the eyes of both of them met. They were both laughing and crying. They finally calmed themselves down, but as they saw their desolate looks, they could not help but laugh again.
Shi Tianhao made a clown face at his grandfather, “Grandfather, it seems like you didn’t shock me. It’s the other way around.”
“How is that possible?” Shi Zhongtian stared and seemed to have thought of something. He could not help but laughed again, “I am your Grandfather, am I so easily frightened?”
As they heard these familiar words, they looked at each other and laughed. They seemed to be praising each other, but it was actually their confidence and freedom that were birthed from the same shell.
“Tianhao, these people who are following you, are they your companions or fellow sect members?” Shi Zhongtian might have felt excited, but he quickly calmed his nerves. He turned his attention to the horizon. As he finally met his grandson again, his excitement was drummed up, but this did not dissipate his instinctive cautiousness.
The envoys that retreated were also alert, but whatever happened caught them by surprise.
As Shi Tianhao and Shi Zhongtian reunited, Zhu Yi, Wang Lin and the rest did not bother them, but the people from the Hall of the Dead could not be spared.
Zhu Yi, Wang Lin, Tuntun and Yang Qing were about to go and kill the cultivators from the Hall of the Dead. But they seemed to be very ambitious.
As they travelled with Shi Tianhao, Shi Zhongtian noticed them too. He placed a little of his attention on them.
But the end result was that Zhu Yi and the rest still continued to attack the cultivators from the Hall of the Dead.
Zhu Yi and Wang Lin led the attack. Zhu Yi revealed the Supreme Holy Ancient Apparel and the Eternal Night Demonic Stele, two magic treasures in the metaplasia realm. Although he could not unleash the full power of the magic treasures, the cultivators from the Hall of the Dead could not do anything to him in the short-term.
Wang Lin was even more direct. He swayed the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner and released Cao Wei’s Immortal Soul Avatar. Although it was restricted to within the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner, Cao Wei’s powers and abhijna were all kept intact. He was also still very active in the mind. The Immortal Soul Avatar still contained the powers of an Immortal Soul First Level cultivator.
The two leading envoys of the Hall of the Dead had the help of the Soul-Shaking Bell and the Soul-Repressing Clock and they could even unleash the powers of these two magic treasures to the fullest. This caused Zhu Yi and Cao Wei’s Immortal Soul Avatar to be at a disadvantage.
Immortal Soul Stage and the realms below the Immortal Soul Stage, magic treasure and no magic treasure, after all, they were on different levels.
But shortly after this, the cultivators from the Hall of the Dead were trapped.
Tuntun and Yang Qing worked their magic on the Nascent Soul Stage cultivators. They did not plan to kill these cultivators, but tried to prevent them from escaping.
The Celestial Sect of Wonders’ disciples blocked off the boundary pathway leading to the Void Background, trapping all the cultivators from the Hall of the Dead within the Celestial Wonders World.
“Although he uses a magic treasure, for a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator to resist an Immortal Soul Stage Elder, he must not be simple.” Shi Zhongtian wondered, “If it was another person, his magic treasure would have already been taken by the Immortal Soul Stage cultivator”
“The key point is…” Shi Zhongtian’s facial muscles seemed to cramp, “Not all Immortal Soul Stage cultivators have their own magic treasures! Which sect is so powerful that their Nascent Soul Stage cultivator can possess a magic treasure?”
“The Great Void Sect? Not right, their cultivation deviates from the Great Void Sect.”
Shi Tianhao pursed his lips, “Grandfather, don’t worry about the Great Void Sect anymore. Let them die.”
With regards to how his grandson defame the first Holy Ground, Shi Zhongtian was not too bothered. He turned his head to look at Shi Tianhao, “Tianhao, are they from the same sect as you? Your Master must be very powerful?”
Shi Tianhao laughed, “You will see him soon. As to how I got him as my Master, it’s a long story. I can’t even finish it in three days and three nights. When this is over, I will explain it to you.”
As he said, Shi Tianhao roared and golden light surged from his head. The Kun Peng Pavilion flew out and crashed upon the cultivators from the Hall of the Dead.
The leading two envoys of the Hall of Dead were unhappy, “The few of you are reliant on magic treasures. Do you think all of you are that powerful?”
“If I don’t teach all of you lesson, all of you will think I’m afraid.”
The two of them unleashed their powers. The Soul-Shaking Bell and the Soul-Repressing Clock also unleashed their shocking powers. As two Immortal Soul Stage cultivators and two magic treasures were present, it was equivalent to four Immortal Soul Avatars combining together. As they combined, they shook Cao Wei’s Immortal Soul, the Eternal Night Demonic Stele and the Kun Peng Pavilion.
