Chapter 838: Senior Disciple of the Celestial Sect of Wonders!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
This battle with the Shaoshang Swordmaster, Guanchong Swordmaster, and the others was the most intense ever since Xiao Yan formed the Nascent Soul. But he managed to improve continuously throughout this battle.
His energy and battling talents were further stimulated, causing him to become stronger and more courageous as he fought on!
Countless talismans and incantations were injected into the sea of fire. Following that, the brutal flames calm down suddenly.
A tri-layered lotus seat appeared between Xiao Yan and Shaoshang Swordmaster. The lowest layer was pure white in color, the middle layer was pure golden, and the top layer was purplish blue. Above the lotus seat, a golden light flashed, and a half-red, half-blue stamen swayed.
As four Primordial Fires combined, the Heaven Fire Lotus was formed!
The frightening Fire Lotus swayed in void space as if it was a delicate lotus flower. But a frightening aura spread from it, causing the Shaoshang Swordmaster to feel terrified too, even though he had the Shaoshang Sword in his hand.
He roared and removed all distractions from his head. The brutal Shaoshang Sword continued to be summoned to the fullest as it stabbed towards Xiao Yan, hoping to kill him.
The Fire Lotus and the sword radiance grazed past each other, as they proceeded towards their respective targets.
Xiao Yan’s face was pale and he was extremely weak. Before the sword radiance even hit him, the reflection of it on his body caused him to feel pain. His soul felt as if it was about to be chopped into half like the God-Slaying Puppet.
Whereas the Heaven Fire Lotus also reached the Shaoshang Swordmaster at this time, but it had yet to explode. The Shaoshang Swordmaster felt as if his virtual entity was about to be burned.
If he allowed the Fire Lotus to strike him, either the original soul of his Shaoshang Sword would be destroyed or he himself would be killed by the explosion!
At this point, a black light appeared in front of the Shaoshang Swordmaster. Acting as a barrier between the Heavens and Earth, it blocked the Heaven Fire Lotus of Xiao Yan!
The Guanchong Sword of Jie Luoshi!
In void space, Jie Luoshi extended his right hand and a black light on his fingertip was summoned. That was the Guanchong Sword which was stronger than the Guanchong Swordmaster in the past when he was still in the Immortal Soul Second Level!
The Heaven Fire Lotus landed on the black light and exploded. All noise dissipated and only a boundless flame expanded out, causing the dark void space to be lit up instantaneously in white.
The Heavens and Earth seemed to set black light as the boundary, as it was halved. On one side, there was a boundless sea of fire, where noise, light, spiritual energy and anything that had form was destroyed. On the other side, it was the Shaoshang Swordmaster.
He was shocked to find out that even the black light formed from Jie Luoshi’s Guanchong Sword was jerked backward by the ferocious attack of the Heaven Fire Lotus. Even the sword mind of the powerful Guanchong Sword wavered.
Jie Luoshi’s eyes also flashed with a look of surprise.
Behind him, it was the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain that seemed to be in a different world on its own. In that world, there was a thick layer of fog that made one unable to see his fingers when he straightened his hand out.
The Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain was shaking tremendously. In an instant, there seemed to be hundreds and thousands of jerking motions. Each motion was caused by an explosion of his powers.
That was because the fog that engulfed the entire place was attacking hundreds and thousands of times in an instant.
The powers of the Grand Moon Sword of Jie Luoshi were different from that of the Grand Moon Swordmaster. They did not come in streaks, rather, they came in countless grains of sand that engulfed the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain.
The sword mind and powers of these grains of sand seemed to be omnipresent, obscure, boundless and pervasive.
They were thin like dust and seemed to be neglectable, but each grain of sand possessed a frightening offensive strength.
The highest level of the Grand Moon Sword, the Grand Moon Four Sword Realms!
This sword contained the most devastating offensive move of the Grand Moon Sword. There were very few Immortal Soul Second Level cultivators that were able to cultivate this move in the Mount Shu Sword Sect.
Jie Luoshi was an unbeatable talent who cultivated the Grand Moon Sword in the past. Before he reached the Immortal Soul Second Level, he had already cultivated this sword. Now that he was in the Immortal Soul Third Level, he was even more powerful.
Jie Luoshi’s Guanchong Sword blocked the Heaven Fire Lotus of Xiao Yan. On the other side, he pointed his finger again and the cold radiance of the Shaoze Sword flashed. Following this, the radiance entered the Grand Moon Four Sword Realms and attacked the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain.
Before both parties actually came into contact with each other, Jie Luoshi’s Shaoze Sword experienced a sudden change.
As the radiance of the sword flashed, a ferocious killer aura surged. The sword radiance was extremely bright. Inside the sword radiance, sword aura and squalls surged, while the sword mind converted into a real entity. This entity was merciless, presenting a stature that was even more terrifying than the Shaoshang Sword.
This was the Lixiong Sword!
The ferocious and sharp powers of the Lixiong Sword were unleashed and focused on one point. It was about to pierce through the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain!
The Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain tremored a little and boundless flames spurted out of the peak of the mountain. Whereas the mountain body became almost transparent instantaneously.
The space that the mountain was in also converted into a world on its own, where ice and fire intersected.
The flames caused the Grand Moon Sword to be burnt, whereas the ice converted into layers and layers of barriers. These barriers were focused on resisting the Lixiong Sword that was attacking it.
And on the other side, the Heaven Fire Lotus was blocked by the Guanchong Sword. As he looked at the shocked expression of the Shaoshang Swordmaster as well as the frightening Shaoshang sword radiance in front of him, Xiao Yan’s pale face maintained its determined look.
Void space cracked open and a huge man walked out. He was decked in green and a black cane was tied to his arm.
The man was serious as he faced the Shaoshang Sword. The black cane grew larger and larger rapidly, as a white flower appeared suddenly on it.
This flower bloomed and an ancient, yet desolate aura was released.
The Shaoshang Sword landed on the delicate white flower, but couldn’t slash it apart. Rather, it landed on the petal of the flower and it was torn apart slowly by the petal.
Jie Luoshi picked his brows as he saw this from afar. “The Immortal Flower? Emperor of the Ancients’ Ancient Immortality Scripture that has been passed down for generations?”
Beside Xiao Yan, a green figure appeared, wielding the Ancient Royal Sword. The Ancient Lightning Jade Earring above this figure took down Ning Lang on the other side.
“Zhener….” Xiao Yan’s pale face revealed a smile. He stood back to back with her. While they did not speak, they achieved a telepathic connection.
As Xiao Zhener got close to Xiao Yan, she looked apologetic, “I’m sorry, Brother Xiao. There has also been a huge change over in the Middle World where my family is. My father is not free, thus only Uncle Peng can come with me. I hope that this will be enough.”
Xiao Yan laughed, “Involving all of you is the fault of our sect. But between us, let’s skip the formalities.”
As Xiao Zhener heard this, she laughed slightly.
After they both laughed, Xiao Yan’s face turned serious again. That’s because he could clearly see that Jie Luoshi had lifted his right hand up expressionlessly. His index finger was straightened like a sword and a white chaos hole had appeared on his fingertip. From the white chaos hole, there was an air current that surged and a frightening power concept was birthed from it.
Inside the white chaos hole, a streak of extremely thin sword aura shot out. It seemed weak, like a breeze, but it was terrifying.
If the Heavens and Earth had not been separated, this sword aura would have torn chaos apart and separate the Heavens and Earth!
It was the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi!
This frightening sword aura was approaching the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain. A hole was pierced through the mountain body as it was struck by the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi!
The Dual Polarity Peak groaned in pain!
On the other side, the Shaoshang Swordmaster wielded his sword and attacked again. Xiao Zhener’s uncle, Gu Peng, commanded his own magic treasure, the Immortal Cane. Whereas Xiao Zhener faced Ning Lang.
The Chongyan Swordmaster was also struggling after she was trapped by the Immortal Royal Flag. Although the Immortal Royal Flag was cultivated by Xiao Yan, it maintained some level of autonomy. It was impossible to get it to sacrifice its life for Xiao Yan. Now that it saw the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi, the heart of the original soul of the Immortal Royal Flag sank.
As Xiao Yan watched the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain in trouble, he took in a deep breath and slapped his own storage pouch. A Cloud Forest Tree branch appeared. As compared to the entire tree at the start, not much of the tree was left now.
The branch converted into an essence and nourished Xiao Yan’s powers. As he felt his powers restoring, Xiao Yan closed his eyes and sat on his knees. A weird looking elixir appeared in his palm and he swallowed it!
Trayasimtra Elixir of Creation!
The elixir that Lin Feng and Xiao Yan had been working on all these years was finally cultivated!
As he consumed the elixir, a light projection flashed above Xiao Yan’s head. The huge Cosmic Form appeared, but this was not the end of things. A 15 or 16 years old light figure also floated out of Xiao Yan’s head, which looked like Xiao Yan when he was younger.
His Nascent Soul had left his body!
For a Nascent Soul at its peak, it would look like the 16-year-old appearance of the cultivator when it appeared.
Ever since he came back from the Ying Sea, Xiao Yan had been cultivating tirelessly in these two years. He retreated in the Inferno Precipice and Heavenly Cosmic Ray World, trying to comprehend the various mantras and nurture his Nascent Soul. Right now, he was at the peak of the Nascent Soul Stage.
After the intense battles that he had, his potential was realized. He felt as if the subtle door in his head was becoming clearer and clearer.
When everyone saw this, they were stunned. “Don’t tell us that…”
Xiao Yan’s Cosmic Form was filled with injuries now. After the intense battles that he had, his physical flesh was even more critically injured. The flesh on his right hand was not even clear anymore.
But Xiao Yan’s energy was at a high now. He never felt so close to the Great Tao of the Heavens and Earth before.
Xiao Zhener turned to look at him and he smiled, “I am the most senior disciple of Master. If the elders, supreme elders, and Master are not around, I have to stand up to the challenge!”
“If I am not dead, I will protect the sect until I die!”
Xiao Zhener looked at him and did not speak. She only smiled before turning around, unleashing her attacks with more ferocity. She did not let Ning Lang inch any closer.
Xiao Yan roared, “Third Junior, Fourth Junior and Fifth Junior, I am extremely sorry. I can’t wait for your True Torch of Ksitigarbha anymore. Second Junior, I shall take this step first!”
