Chapter 808: Poisonous Ghost
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Fang Ting’s gaze became dull and she unleashed a mournful, petrifying scream.
Streaks and streaks of green radiances burst out of her body, covering her entire body. She slowly transformed into a 10 foot tall giant. Her body flashed with a dim jade-green radiance and countless weird runes surged around her body.
Although her body expanded by multiple times, the facial features of this giant was still the same as Fang Ting. However, it was not how she looked when she was 20 years old. Rather, the giant looked like how she looked when she was 13 or 14 years old.
It’s just that her past gentleness had disappeared. Her eyes shot out a ferocious and brutal radiance. Her initial charming looks twisted and revealed an expression of pain and struggle. She had even become a little ugly.
Following that, her body started to surface with a flocculus substance. It was entirely white and covered her entire body. Her entire person seemed to have become a snowman. She even released a scent from her body.
Yang Qing, who was the closest to her, felt light-headed as he came into contact with this scent and became dizzy.
He summoned his powers to resist it, which caused his sorrow to be unable to be repressed anymore.
For such a toxic power, a normal Aurous Core Stage cultivator was unable to resist it. This was even more so as Yang Qing was in such close proximity. Without the Nascent Soul, one would certainly be poisoned to death. It was only someone with the powers of Lin Feng who could resist being poisoned.
Beside the Ghostly Grandmaster, an Aurous Core Stage cultivator pointed towards Fang Ting and shouted, “It’s her. It’s like that!”
“The white substance from her body spread and those who were near it were killed immediately. In an instant, countless people were killed. Even the fellow disciple from the Path of the Heaven-Born who was in the Aurous Core Stage could not resist it. His powers were destroyed and his flesh and soul were converted to nothingness. He turned snow-white instantaneously and following that, he was converted into white powder.”
“If it was not because I was far away, I would have been poisoned too!”
The Ghostly Grandmaster looked at Fang Ting and revealed a suspicious look in his eyes. As the emotions of confusion, fanaticism, obsession and intoxication welled up in his eyes, he mumbled, “What a poisonous ghost, brilliant method! Only with the utmost ghostly spells and poisonous abhijnas can one produce such a poisonous ghost!”
“But, how was this done? Without the ghostly soul or even the ghostly pill, her lethality has still managed to reach the realm of the ghost lord. This is too miraculous. I can see the lineage of the Path of the Hungry Ghoul, but it’s different at the same time. This is more similar to the Million Wraith Sect of the past, but it’s also special in its own way. It’s of a higher level. This is unbelievable…”
“Stop talking!” Yang Qing looked at Fang Ting and felt hurt.
Yue Hongyan and the rest also felt sad too. When they saw Fang Ting for the first time, Wang Lin, Yue Hongyan, Kang Nanhua and the rest had already scanned her using their supernatural awareness and discovered the problem.
Fang Ting had no more flesh. She was no longer alive. She was a spiritual ghost that had been cultivated by someone else!
They still thought that they had been reunified. But it turned out that even before they could meet again, they were already separated, in their capacities as human and ghost.
Wang Lin had a deep comprehension of life, death, survival and destruction. He immediately discovered that even as a spiritual ghost, Fang Ting’s soul was still in remnants. She could not even reincarnate. If the ghostly spell was removed, she would be destroyed immediately.
What was even more frightening was that besides being cultivated into a ghost, she was further cultivated using a secret manual and injected into a poisonous abhijna. Her poisonous powers were so strong that they could destroy all life. The few dead cities and lives were all caused by Fang Ting.
Yang Qing disrupted his own train of thought. The Ghostly Grandmaster snorted, “Hey! Did the Celestial Sect of Wonders cultivate this poisonous ghost?”
“I didn’t think that the Celestial Sect of Wonders was capable of doing this…” Before he finished speaking, the Ghostly Grandmaster screamed all of a sudden. A streak of white light flashed across his body. It did not cause harm to this body, but his defences was penetrated.
That white light cut through all barriers and destroyed the Nascent Soul of the Ghostly Grandmaster!
The Nascent Soul Stage magic item, the Space-Chopping Dagger!
Yang Qing lifted his head to stare at the Ghostly Grandmaster. His eyes turned blood-red, “I said before, shut up!”
Grandmaster Xia creased his brows. As he moved his hand, a beam of bright, colorful light descended from the skies and covered the Ghostly Grandmaster. An indestructible aura was suddenly revealed.
The Immortal Heaven Divine Light was one of the top spells in the Samsara Sect. It contained the concept of reincarnation and divinity.
During the Spiritual Conference of Kunlun Mountains, Yang Likun once exhibited this spell. But as his cultivation was repressed then, the power of the Immortal Heaven Divine Light was much weaker than the one now.
But in the eyes of Yang Qing, two streaks of radiance, one green and golden, exploded out. The dagger light paused for a moment, but it soon revealed a mysterious power concept that transcended the light beam and continued to attack the Nascent Soul of the Ghostly Grandmaster.
The Ghostly Grandmaster summoned many spells to avoid this dagger light, but this dagger light seemed to be formless. It did not harm the body or the soul of the Ghostly Grandmaster either. But it cut through void space and destroyed everything that was void. It targeted the Nascent Soul of the Ghostly Grandmaster.
Under Lin Feng’s manipulation, this Nascent Soul Stage magic item unleashed a frightening power. The Ghostly Grandmaster was unable to deal with him at all.
Grandmaster Xia snorted in displeasure. Above his head, a radiance flashed and a 100 foot tall person who wore a white robe and had four huge limbs appeared. Each of the limbs held a different item. They were prayer beads, a water bottle, scepter and a bow & arrow. It was his Cosmic Form.
The limb of the giant that was holding the water bottle tilted it above the head of the Ghostly Grandmaster. A streak of formless water flowed and stabilized the Space-Chopping Dagger. After that, the hand holding the scepter caused the Space-Chopping Dagger to retreat.
Grandmaster Xia stared at Wang Lin and Yang Qing, “Trying to kill us? We shall see!”
After saying that, he did not stay any longer. He summoned his powers to drag everyone up and escaped into void space.
Wang Lin lifted his eyelids and looked indifferent. He extended his right hand and Yang Qing shouted, “Forget it, Third Senior. Let them go!”
At this point, Yang Qing kept the Space-Chopping Dagger. His initial look of fury turned into dejection. As he waved his hand, the golden Grand Sun Primordial Fire converted into a wall and blocked the white substance strewn by Fang Ting’s body. The fire burnt the substance, but that lethal poison seemed to be never-ending.
There was only a glint of primal savageness in Fang Ting’s eyes. She screamed out menacingly. It was extremely terrifying and uncomfortable to watch.
Wang Lin shook his head slightly. The spiritual energy above his head rose and converted into a light projection which revealed a door. The door was half black and half white. The side was as black as ink and countless projections flashed forth. These projections acted out the changes of the world. They were in chronological order and exuded an ancient and desolate feel to them.
The right side of the door was white. The sculpture on it kept on changing, which seemed very messy. But it contained countless possibilities at the same time, which brought hope.
The door opened suddenly and presented a complete world. The past had passed in this world and could not be changed. But the present could be grasped, as it contained hope.
Wang Lin comprehended the Four Appearances Heaven Cleaving Script and cultivated the Four Demonic Doors. One of them led to this Ancient and Modern World, one of the Four Worlds.
As the Ancient and Modern World descended, it sucked Fang Ting inside and the door closed. But as it closed, time in the Ancient and Modern World suddenly reversed!
A powerful force that wanted to change the past was revealed.
The door closed in an instant. After that instant, the door opened again, revealing the world which had become normal. At the same time, it also revealed Fang Ting who had reverted to her original look.
Yang Qing said, “Thank you, Third Senior.” Wang Lin shook his head, while Yue Hongyan and the rest were disappointed too.
Wang Lin’s Ancient and Modern World repressed Fang Ting’s poisonous power, but it could not solve the root of the problem.
Fang Ting wore a smile on her face. But there was the same sorrow beneath her, just like Yang Qing. She lifted her eyes to look at Yang Qing, “So, it seems like I’m already dead.”
Because of the special effect of the Ancient and Modern World, Fang Ting was able to retain her memories.
Yang Qing walked towards her, “Tingting…”
Fang Ting retreated and shook her head. She was hinting for Yang Qing to stop. She smiled and said, “So, it seems like I was already dead then.”
Yang Qing’s sorrow hit him hard and he could no longer repress his sorrow and desolation.
“The elders just now said that I have killed many people. Is that true?” Fang Ting lifted her head to look in the sky. There was no focal point and her body trembled a little. It was as if she felt boundless fear. The guilt that she felt caused her to feel breathless.
Yang Qing was silent and he did not answer. Fang Ting shook her head lightly, “I think that it’s true. I can finally recall now – what I looked like just now and what I was thinking.”
Fanaticism, Pain, Bloodthirst, Desolation. It was as if killing others was the only way of relieving her pain.
Yue Hongyan came beside them and she said in a deep voice, “Before this, you had no consciousness. The blame doesn’t lie with you. It’s the person who made you a spiritual ghost!”
Fang Ting smiled, but the sorrow in her eyes deepened, “I would also like to comfort myself like that. But every time I think of it, I know that there are indeed countless people who have been killed by me. I feel breathless. Whether I was a willing party or not, everything was still done by me.”
She lowered her head to look at her hands and her white robes, “The blood on my hands is too much…”
“Yes, you are right.” At this point, a laughter rang through the Heavens and Earth.
Everyone was shocked as they looked at Wang Lin. Wang Lin looked down as he held a jade talisman, “I found this from your soul.”
A man’s laughter came from the jade talisman, “Yang…Qing, am I right? Right, the question is simple. On one side, there’s countless indignant souls. On the other side, it’s the lover you have been pining. How will you choose?”
“Let me give you more hints. The number of cities that she has massacred is not just four. There are nine cities. But it’s just that five of them have not been discovered yet.”
“The cultivators that have died in her hands are not just from the Samsara Sect. The Samsara Sect is not on good terms with all of you, so it’s fine if all of you ignore them. But what about the Great Qin Empire, the Sword of Radiance Sect and the Great Barren Sword Sect?”
“They have a good relationship with your sect, I believe? When they ask about the killer, will you hand her over, or not?”
