Chapter 866: Life and Death Book Versus Higan Golden Bridge!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
In the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World, there was a golden bridge that flashed with radiance, as if it was extremely ancient and contained the principles of Dao.
The immense power concept exuded from within was extremely vigorous and shocking.
Magic treasure in the destiny realm, Higan Golden Bridge!
It was not formed by the powers of Zhu Yi’s literary piece, but it was a true Higan Golden Bridge!
Crossing the bitter seas, overcoming life and death, standing tall above all life!
Above the golden bridge, a Taiji Diagram that was filled with a literary aura revolved slowly, causing Zhu Yi’s flesh and Supreme Holy Ancient Apparel to be dragged within.
The original soul of the Supreme Holy Ancient Apparel revealed an image of a refined elder in a white robe. He smiled as he entered the Literary Taiji Diagram with Zhu Yi’s flesh.
In the next instant, the Literary Taiji Diagram revolved in void space and converted into the appearance of a scholar in purple, who donned a white robe over his purple costume. He was also stepping on the golden bridge.
The fourth Immediate Disciple of Lin Feng to form the Immortal Soul, Zhu Yi!
Zhu Yi remained calm and he connected with the Higan Golden Bridge. He felt that his entire person had converted into a majestic world. That miraculous sensation caused him to surge with energy.
In a split second, Zhu Yi had already understood everything, “Although this Higan Golden Bridge of mine has reached the destiny realm, it is still far from being complete.”
“But it’s not because of my cultivation. My cultivation has proceeded on smoothly, but there’s something inherently wrong about the own power concept of the Higan Golden Bridge.”
“In the future, as I traverse this Heavens and Earth, I shall educate all life. Every merit that I accumulate will also allow the Higan Golden Bridge to take one step towards perfection. This is also a path I wish to take. This also explains why the power concept of the Higan Golden Bridge is in this way.”
The Supreme Holy Ancient Apparel exhibited a will at this stage, “Zhu Yi, I have observed the ‘Yi’ word. I believe that it must be the new opening of a chapter of yours? I have benefited greatly just by observing that opening. If there’s more to come, I think that I will be able to reach the Mahayana Realm.”
“This new chapter of yours is even better than the chapter where you evoke the singing of the holy sages.”
Zhu Yi nodded his head, “After I formed the Immortal Soul, I sensed something and wrote down this word. There was indeed a thought in my head to write a book that will be passed down for ages to come. This is only just the start, but I will try to complete it in the future.”
“And right now…” Zhu Yi’s eyes flashed with a holy light, “I shall remove these enemies of the Celestial Sect of Wonders!”
The Higan Golden Bridge around him shone and burst out of the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World!
On Mount Yujing, everyone was shocked as they looked at void space above the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree. The movement of the Higan Golden Bridge shook space and everyone could sense it.
The Life and Death Book in Xu Anda’s hands also flashed with a radiance. The aura it exuded seemed to suggest that it had met its match. It was excited yet fearful.
“Don’t tell me the white jade pillar has been cultivated? Zhu Yi has not shown himself so far, don’t tell me…” Jie Luoshi, Xu Anda, and Shao Dongtian had the same thought in their mind. They then started to rush towards the top of the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree.
Xiao Yan and the rest naturally wouldn’t grant them their wish and they quickly moved forward to intercept.
At this point, a long golden light shot out of the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World, bringing along the immense power of a world, as it crashed down on Xu Anda and the others.
Xu Anda stared at the golden light and lifted the Life and Death Book with his right hand. His left hand was flipping the pages of the book.
His actions were slow but impactful. It was as if every flip of the page of the book seemed to be riling a world up.
As the Life and Death Book flipped, it evolved a grey and dark world to receive the attack of the hostile golden light.
The golden light revealed its form, which was the bridge. Zhu Yi landed on the golden bridge. He did not look at Xu Anda, but turned his attention towards Xiao Yan, Wang Lin, Shi Tianhao, Yue Hongyan, Li Yuanfang, Luo Qingwu and Yang Qing.
“All of you have worked hard. I am finally here.”
As he finished saying, his Great Sun Avatar jumped off the golden bridge and attacked King Songdi of the Hall of the Dead.
Whereas Zhu Yi clasped his palms before the Higan Golden Bridge exerted a tremendous pressure towards the Life and Death Book and Xu Anda.
In Xu Anda’s eyes, a bright light shone. The more one looked at it, the more it looked like a deep valley. At the depths of the valley, black fog surrounded, and streaks and streaks of black rays surged.
Inside these black rays, there were countless tormented faces and human figures that sat on their knees inside the black fog, clasping their palms.
Xu Anda extended his hand and pointed at Zhu Yi while shouting a word.
The greyish and dark world of the Life and Death Book converted into a layer of evil, black color, causing an extreme death will to surge from within.
As the Higan Golden Bridge was covered by that black world, it became dim for an instant.
The lamp at the head of the bridge was extinguished. Boundless darkness crept in and the deathly gas that came seemed to signify the death of Zhu Yi that was about to come.
Zhu Yi’s powers stalled, while his mind slowed down too. The Supreme Holy Ancient Apparel did not have any reaction in the face of such an attack too.
The pure-white robe of his turned greyish dark, as if it could turn into ashes at any time.
The flowers that fell as the Higan Golden Bridge descended were slowly dying too.
The surface of the bridge seemed to be cracking apart at this point.
As compared to the time when it challenged Lin Feng, the Life and Death Book was attacking with much more hush after it reached the Destiny Realm.
But the power concept contained within became more and more frightening. It was a frightening power that could kill a person, all life, and all things. It could not be reversed, refuted, resisted or stalled.
If it said that one was a dead man, he would be dead.
It was not just targeted at a person or a living thing. Even things could be ‘killed’.
But it was still not good enough against the Higan Golden Bridge!
The golden bridge flashed in void space and countless streaks of golden light surged out, shining upon the black world.
In the next moment, the golden bridge penetrated the black world!
Zhu Yi wore the Supreme Holy Ancient Apparel and stood on the golden bridge quietly. There was no sign of death around him at this moment. The Supreme Holy Ancient Apparel looked as new as ever, while the Higan Golden Bridge shone brightly. They did not seem to be affected.
As Xu Anda saw this, he flipped the Life and Death Book again. This time, the pages flipped even faster, as a furious, rustling sound was made.
As a bright radiance flashed, the appearance of the Life and Death Book became clearer. Every page of it seemed to be a world on its own and every page seemed to record the destiny of all life in the world.
Zhu Yi could even subtly feel that a small light wheel was turning, controlling the cycle of Samsara.
The Higan Golden Bridge exerted a force, but the Life and Death Book surged with blurry, greyish light that restrained it.
In the Heavens and Earth, only two colors seemed to exist anymore. Grey and golden. Golden light filled the top while the greyish light filled the bottom. Both colors shared the world, but they were competing intensely.
At this point, in the supernatural awareness of Wang Lin, Xiao Yan and the rest, there seemed to be two worlds that were crushing each other.
Zhu Yi revealed his Literary Taiji Diagram that engulfed the sky above the golden bridge, unleashing its full force.
Without magic treasures, Xu Anda was the strongest among everyone present. He was even superior to Jie Luoshi, Shao Dongtian, and Shi Tianfang. Even for the Celestial Sect disciples who had formed the Immortal Soul, all of them were not his match, except for maybe Xiao Yan whose powers were a little special.
But compared to Zhu Yi, Xu Anda was even more surprised now. His cultivation was deep and could immediately tell that Zhu Yi’s Higan Golden Bridge was not complete yet. But even so, it was still able to resist the Life and Death Book.
Although Zhu Yi’s powers were strong, he was only in the Immortal Soul First Level. As he summoned the Higan Golden Bridge, he was still unable to control it perfectly. Most of the time, he had to rely on the movement of the Higan Golden Bridge on its own.
The Higan Golden Bridge was incomplete, thus Xu Anda gained the upper hand after a long period of battling.
Xiao Yan, Wang Lin, and Shi Tianhao were ready to reinforce Zhu Yi at this point.
Xuan Li also slashed towards Xu Anda. But Jie Luoshi’s gaze flashed before he intercepted her.
Xuan Li was staring hatefully at Jie Luoshi who had the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi. As he intercepted her, his eyes had already turned blood red.
The frightening Heaven-Destroying Sword radiance attacked Jie Luoshi, but it was dissipated by the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi.
The frightening Heaven-Destroying Sword landed on Jie Luoshi and he let out a groan. When he fought with Xuan Li previously, he became frailer and frailer, as if he was an elder approaching death. He was no longer as mighty as before.
But he was filled with energy as he stared at Xuan Li.
After receiving the previous attack by Xuan Li, he started to become even more feeble and his body became weaker too.
But even so, Jie Luoshi did not back down, as he continued to block Xuan Li.
Xuan Li’s eyes turned cold and the Heaven-Destroying sword stabbed forward. Her entire body combined with the sword to convert into a violent and brutal light that unleashed its strength towards Jie Luoshi!
At this point, Jie Luoshi’s eyes flashed with a radiance never seen before. He tapped his own head and shouted, “Reveal yourself!”
A black figure surfaced from his body, but it was an empty sword casket.
On the sword casket, two ancient yet miraculous words were carved.
Jie Luoshi grabbed onto the sword casket and pointed it towards the Heaven-Destroying Sword. He actually captured the brutal light that was going for his blood!
“In this world, besides the Saintly Celestial Sword, every other sword will be captured by this Sect-Returning Sword Casket. If you are in the destiny realm, this sword casket will be useless. But you are still not perfect yet!”
Jie Luoshi looked at the sky and laughed, as he restrained the Heaven-Destroying Sword in the sword casket. The Heaven-Destroying Sword shook tremendously and the Sect-Returning Sword Casket jerked violently. From within, a red light was even shining out. The surface of the sword casket even developed some minor cracks.
“This sword is indeed ferocious. Even the Sect-Returning Sword Casket can only hold me for a while. If too much time passes, it may crack. But I will still be able to endure it until I return to Mount Shu!”
