Chapter 860: A Small Action Begets Dire Consequences
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
As he saw Shi Tianfang setting foot on Mount Yujing, Li Yuanfang creased his brows. He held a jade talisman in his hand and was about to crush it.
This was the last resort that Zhu Yi instructed Li Yuanfang to take before he went into retreat. If Li Yuanfang crushed the jade talisman, he would have to exit from his retreat early.
Shi Tianfang lifted his head to look at Li Yuanfang. As Shi Tianfang glanced at him, Li Yuanfang felt as if his mind went blank and both his soul and flesh were about to be separated.
Fortunately, Li Yuanfang’s mind was aligned with the Two Elements of Creation Formation right now. The powers of the formation allowed him to dilute the strength imposed by Shi Tianfang’s supernatural awareness.
Otherwise, if Shi Tianfang wanted to kill him, he just needed to stare at him.
He might not even have to do so. As long as he thought of it in his mind, Shi Tianfang could kill Li Yuanfang if the formation was not around.
But as Li Yuanfang was subjected to the attack of Shi Tianfang, the movement of the Two Elements of Creation Formation became more constricted.
Shi Tianfang looked at Li Yuanfang, before calculating the time he needed to destroy the entire Two Elements of Creation Formation. After he did so, he shook his head and retracted his gaze. He was preparing to cultivate Mount Yujing first.
At this point, an extremely quick flowing light broke through void space in the sky far away from Mount Kunlun. In an instant, it had arrived outside the Two Elements of Creation Formation. A light projection was then formed.
The light projection had the appearance of a long sword, which was outlined by streaks of light. From this light projection, an aura of unpredictability was exuded.
The flowing light appeared in an instant. The brief instant passed rapidly, making it difficult to be grabbed or controlled.
Within the long sword, countless images flashed. In just an instant, 60 transformations had occurred.
This was the virtual entity of the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster.
As the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster came to the formation, he was not segregated outside. Li Yuanfang allowed him in and was unworried that the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster would betray the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
Indeed, the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster did not harbor any ill-intentions. As he transcended boundless void space, he came to the rescue of all of them quickly. After he entered the formation, he challenged the East Sea Holy Man and saved the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain.
The Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain left the formation and proceeded towards Shi Tianfang on Mount Yujing.
Shi Tianfang looked at the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster, “Yet another one.”
Jie Luoshi was expressionless as he witnessed this scene. His gaze flashed with a cold radiance as he stared at Shi Tianhao.
Originally, the Shaoze Swordmaster was supposed to stop the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster. But Jie Luoshi never expected that Shi Tianhao would hurt the Shaoze Swordmaster first.
Xiao Yan took in a deep breath and looked at the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster, “I am extremely grateful for your help in this dire time of need.”
After the long sword unleashed one stroke at the East Sea Holy Man, the voice of the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster sounded, “My sect has benefited a lot from your sect. If your sect needs help, it is only right that I lend a helping hand. You don’t have to thank me for this. Rather, I have to congratulate the few of you on forming the Immortal Soul.”
Above Shi Tianfang’s head, the Immortal Heavenly Divine Light rose and resisted the attack of the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain. His expression did not change, “If either the Eternal Heavenly Spear or the Nine Paths Lightning Drum is here, they may be useful. But you are useless here, Supreme Radiance.”
“Although you have made it here, you will be the only one. You can forget about the rest of the reinforcements.”
At this point, two streaks of lightning were traveling through void space before they stopped in their tracks suddenly.
As the lightning stopped, two human figures appeared. One of them was the current leader of the Purple Clouds Sect, the Thunderclouds Holy Man. The other person was the Blue Pavilion Holy Man. Right now, the Blue Pavilion Holy Man was in the Immortal Soul Second Level, after he finally managed to break through from the Immortal Soul First Level.
However, the both of them looked gloomy now. In front of them in void space, there were countless radiances flowing. They formed huge formations that covered the entire Heavens and Earth.
In the horizon far away, there were the subtle groans of ferocious beasts. Their groans shook the sky and there were many of them around. They revealed the powerful aura of the Undying Demon Soul Second Level.
In space, two figures subtly appeared. One of them was an elder who looked ordinary and had a medium-sized figure. He seemed like a country bumpkin too. The other person was covered by a black robe and his appearance could not be seen clearly.
But the Thunderclouds Holy Man and the Blue Pavilion Holy Man both recognized who they were, causing them to raise their brows.
The leader of the Path of Beasts of the Samsara Sect, Wu Xusen and the leader of the Path of Hell, Ming Zun.
Ming Zun did not speak, whereas Wu Xusen laughed slightly, “Without the Nine Paths Lightning Drum, the two of you can only dream of passing through us.”
“Even with the Nine Paths Lightning Drum, it will still take some time for it to get past the both of us.”
“Admittedly, we are not comparable to the Nine Paths Lightning Drum. However, our intention is not to fight all the way till death with all of you. We only want to stall for time. Very soon, our leader will take care of everything over there.”
“Just nice, both Ming Zun and I are adept at delaying time. Thunderclouds Holy Man, you can seek help from the Nine Paths Lightning Drum. Worse comes to worst, I shall send all the spiritual beasts that I have reared all these years to die at the hands of the Nine Paths Lightning Drum.”
At the same time in the Northern Realms, there were two lonely men standing on the vast grassland. They were facing the southern direction, where Mount Kunlun was. They were ready to rush over.
Out of these two men, one of them was a frail elder.
The other man was a youth who wore a black robe. Behind his back, there was a huge black, steel spear. As his powers were summoned, he seemed much more frightening than the elder.
The elder was the Priest of the Royal House of the Northern Tribes, an Immortal Soul Second Level cultivator who specialized in cultivating spells of the soul.
When the Royal House of the Northern Tribes learned of the change in the Celestial Sect of Wonders, the Lord, Priest, and others decided to send reinforcements to help the Celestial Sect of Wonders after a brief discussion.
But they had no choice but to pause for a while now.
There were two other people in front of them on the grassland right now.
The one on the left was tall and mighty, with a terrifying stature. As he stood there, he seemed like a huge sword which wanted to tear apart the Heavens and Earth. He was both domineering and ferocious.
The one on the right wore a linen clothing and was barefooted. No sign of aura was exuded from his body. As he stood there ordinarily, he seemed like an average person.
They were both the Shaoshang and Lixiong Swordmasters.
The youth in black robe beside the Priest remained expressionless, “Just the two of you to stop us?” As he said, the black, steel spear had already appeared in his hand. A brutal yet majestic power was unleashed, causing the Heavens and Earth to shake.
The Eternal Heavenly Spear was an extremely valuable magic treasure of the Royal House of the Northern Tribes, which was in the Mahayana realm. It was the number one cultivator of the Royal House of the Northern Tribes. But this magic treasure was rarely surfaced. However, in light of the fact that the anti-Celestial Sect alliance was extremely strong, the Lord of the Royal House decided to invite the Eternal Heavenly Spear and the Priest of the Royal House to aid the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
This youth in black was the original soul of the Eternal Heavenly Spear.
The Shaoshang Swordmaster laughed, “We thought that only the Lord and the Priest from the Royal House will appear. But we didn’t expect that the Royal House of the Northern Tribes will send the Eternal Heavenly Spear.”
“Eternal Heavenly Spear, you are a magic treasure in the Mahayana realm. You are extraordinary, but with the both of us here, we are not afraid of you as we have the Shaoshang and Lixiong swords. Others may be scared of you, but we are not.”
The Shaoshang and Lixiong Swords were the two most destructive swords among the Mount Shu Six Passages of Sword.
The Shaoshang Swordmaster said, “Is the Royal House of the Northern Tribes ready to fight Mount Shu to help the Celestial Sect of Wonders?”
The Lixiong Swordmaster looked at the Eternal Heavenly Spear and remained indifferent, before saying, “The Celestial Sect of Wonders has to pay for their arrogance in the past. My advice to the both of you is to stay away. Otherwise, the end result will not be good.”
Inside the main pavilion of the Great Barren Sword Sect, the Great Barren Sword Sect placed his hands behind his back and looked into the distance with a serious expression. Amidst a crimson red, burning cloud, a sword radiance subtly flashed.
“Great Barren, you have been too close to the Celestial Sect of Wonders these few years. You better stay where you are now. After this matter is done and dusted, Mount Shu may still be able to tolerate your presence.”
The person who was stopping the Great Barren Sword Sect was the leader of the Intense Flaming Sword Sect, the Intense Flaming Swordmaster.
At the same time, outside the mountain of the Lightning Sword Sect, there was a vast sea that was reversed. As it engulfed the entire Earth, the seawater did not fall but waves could be seen surging.
The Vast Sea Swordmaster remained indifferent as he stepped on the surface of the sea, standing in a reverse manner in space. But he was as comfortable as usual. As he looked down on the Lightning Swordmaster, he prevented the Lightning Swordmaster from leaving the mountain.
The Vast Seas Swordmaster said, “Lightning, we have fought more than once. You should know that we are quite equal, so let’s not waste each other’s time. The both of us don’t have to fight because of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. Just wait here till everything has been settled.”
“Troops from the Great Zhou Empire have also proceeded towards the Great Qin Empire. Shi Yu is unable to take any action.”
Right now, there was an intense clash at the border between the Great Zhou Empire and Great Qin Empire.
On the Great Zhou side, there were two waves of vast aura, as if they were worlds on their own. Whereas on the Great Qin side, there were two streaks of radiances that were boundless. They were erected at the border between the two empires.
Shi Yu, Prince Gunyang, and Prince Nanming were now in the Immortal Dragon City. They were serious as they looked at one another.
They knew that Liang Pan’s and Zhu Hongwu’s intentions were to prevent them from helping the Celestial Sect of Wonders. But if they had the opportunity to ride over the Great Qin Empire, Liang Pan and Zhu Hongwu would be more than happy to do so.
Prince Nanming looked at Shi Yu, “Your Majesty, why not we go and help the Celestial Sect of Wonders now. In the future, we can then ally with them to take revenge against the Great Zhou Empire. Whatever they take today, we shall take it back with interest another day.”
Prince Gunyang shook his head and said, “We are allies with the Celestial Sect of Wonders. But we are in no way related to them. How can we forsake our land to help them? Over here, we also help them by keeping the two magic treasures in the Destiny realm busy.”
Shi Yu did not speak and remained calm. As his gaze transcended void space, it landed on the Imperial Palace. He stared at Liang Pan. Liang Pan was equally calm too and lowered his head slightly, “How are things over at Dongtian’s side?”
An Immortal Soul cultivator beside him replied, “Master Shao is still going tough over there. He is waiting for the right opportunity. Xiao Yan, Shi Tianhao, and Wang Lin have formed the Immortal Soul, which is a little unexpected. This has left him a little unconfident. Thus, he can only observe the situation now. But Shi Tianfang has gained an upper hand.”
