Chapter 167: The Sky Screen Closing
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Jian Yiwu became more uncertain. If this had been an ordinary situation, he would already have left. He was a very cautious man who treasured his life.
However, he had to obtain the mental strength training jade slip. Why else would he have stayed in such a remote place like the Polar Night Continent for so many years? Hadn’t he done this for the mental strength training jade slip? How could he walk away now, when he had finally found a clue about the jade slip?
“I will try to experience this.” As soon as Jian Yiwu spoke, a long stick appeared in his palm and a smoldering, sinister wind shrouded the surrounding space. If the short man hadn’t been strong, Jian Yiwu would not have been so polite. He would have simply killed him and ended this.
“Is that a three-door node?” The dark-skinned man was stunned. To be honest, this type of dharma treasure was rare.
The three-door node looked like a long stick, but it was actually not a stick at all. This kind of dharma treasure was difficult to refine, so basically only array formation experts could refine it.
The three-door node consisted of an invisible door, funeral door, soul door and death door. Being locked by the aura of one of these doors was a dead end.
Jian Yiwu’s first move was already a killer move. He released the three-door aura of the three-door node wildly so that he could lock the short man as fast as possible.
The three doors of the three-door node suddenly become bigger and horribly sinister, just like the three life-and-death doors. Even the cultivators on the Sky Screen Square, who were very far away from the three doors, felt terrified. Their scalps suddenly went numb. Some of them, who had a lower cultivation level, couldn’t help but want to rush over to the three sinister doors of the three-door node.
The Pioneer Sea Realm Expert was indeed very frightening. This was the only thought in everyone’s minds as they ignored the short man, who didn’t look very exceptional.
The short man did not move at all. When he opened his hand, the three life-and-death doors of the three-door node quickly dissipated and the three-door node appeared in the short man’s hands.
Jian Yiwu was standing in a daze in front of the short man. He had lost contact with his dharma treasure, so he did not dare move. He was only able to keep the three-section node by opening his hand. It was evident that the other party was much stronger than him.
If the other man wanted to kill him, he could do so by lifting a single finger.
The short man looked at the three-section node in his hand and turned it slightly, making the three-door node disappear. Then, he told Jian Yiwu, “Go. I won’t kill you.”
Jian Yiwu did not dare ask for his three-door node back. He just bowed hurriedly and retreated. He was sure that this short man was either at the Life Tribulation Realm or the True Form Realm. When he thought of a True Form expert, his heart began to shrink.
He had been hiding in the Polar Night Continent for a long time, yet he had barely seen a Pioneer Sea Realm cultivator, let alone a Life Tribulation Expert.
Who would expect that the law would be incomplete when there was still a True Form expert in the fragmented Polar Night Continent?
No matter how important the mental strength training jade slip was, his life was more important. However, this was not over. How could he give up on the mental strength training jade slip? When he left the Polar Night Continent, he would tell the Jian Family immediately about this. Although he was a nobody compared to this short man, this short man was a nobody compared to the Jian Family.
“I’m pleading you to hear me out, sir!” Before Jian Yiwu could leave, an Essence Soul Expert suddenly rushed forward, fell to the ground before the short man, and said with a cry, “A mid-stage Essence Soul Realm expert from the Qi Family’s Commercial Building was slapped to death by this man. I’m pleading you to hear my case for the greater good of the Polar Night Continent.”
Although Jian Yiwu’s expression changed, he did not dare walk away. He was worried that if he did, he would anger the short expert and get killed with a slap.
The short man’s gaze fell on the Essence Soul cultivator of the Qi Family’s Commercial Building with a sigh. “I can’t make a decision for the Qi Family’s Commercial Building,” he said.
“Sir, Essence Soul Realm cultivators are already very rare in the Polar Night Continent. This man killed one of the Qi Family’s fourth-stage Essence Soul Realm experts, which will cause the Polar Night Continent to…”
Before the Essence Soul Realm cultivator could finish, the short man sneered, “I know all about the Qi Family’s principles. Not long ago, the Qi Family’s Commercial Building swept the Galaxy Sect and killed dozens of Golden Core cultivators, causing the Galaxy Sect to be removed from the Polar Night Continent. Why didn’t you think about the Polar Night Continent back then? The way the Qi Family acts is a bit overboard.”
By the time the short old man finished talking, he was still shaking his head. The Qi Family’s way of doing things was self-defeating. Even if no one succeeded the Galaxy Sect, other sects could still use this as an excuse to destroy the Qi Family’s Commercial Building in the future.
“Sir…” The Qi Family Essence Soul cultivator was so scared that his whole body had gone cold.
“You don’t have to worry,” the short man said coolly. “I will not blame the Qi Family’s Commercial Building for this. I’m just saying that if the Qi Family keeps acting this way, sooner or later, you will suffer the consequences of your actions. You may leave now.”
“Yes, yes…” The Qi Family Essence Soul Realm expert dared not say any more nonsense. Instead, he moved his head down quickly and started retreating.
He regretted that he had not managed to convince the short expert to kill Jian Yiwu and avenge the Qi Family Essence Soul cultivator. However, he had not taken to heart the short expert’s words. The Qi Family’s methods were not self-defeating. It was estimated that there were only a couple of experts like the short old man in the Polar Night Continent. These experts certainly did not have a relationship with the Galaxy Sect. As long as the other experts did not attack, no one in the entire Polar Night Continent would dare move against the Qi Family’s Commercial Building.
How many sects in the Polar Night Continent had a Void Spirit Realm Expert? There was one in the Qi Family’s Commercial Building right now.
Jian Yiwu bowed respectfully once again. As he was about to retreat, the Sky Screen suddenly disappeared. A ray of light passed through the void and landed on the Sky Screen Square.
“The Sky Screen is closed!” someone shouted.
The entire Sky Screen Square was agitated as everyone stared at the cultivators transported out. There were too many good things in the Sky Screen, so each of the cultivators who came out of the Sky Screen was a golden figure.
Jian Yiwu, who had been about to leave, stopped. As his eyes swept through the crowd, he started getting angrier and angrier with the short man. If it had not been for this man, he would have body-searched every person who came out. However, all he could do now was watch them in secret.
About 1,000-2,000 people came out. Jian Yiwu looked for a long time, yet he did not find the cultivator he was looking for.
Every sect expert rushed forward to protect the sect’s cultivators and then walked over to the short man and bowed down before him. This man was definitely the strongest expert who lived in seclusion in the Polar Night Continent.
When Qin Yin came out, she was protected by her master, Yuan Jie. When he saw that his proud disciple had already attained the first-stage Golden Core Realm, Yuan Jie was pleasantly surprised. Back when Qin Yin had entered the Sky Screen, she had only been at the third-stage Foundation Establishment Realm. However, it had not taken her long to reach the second-stage Golden Core Realm.
“Good, good…” an Essence Soul Master said a few times, his eyes filled with happiness.
Meanwhile, Jing Moshuang looked a little lost as she looked around in every direction. A Galaxy Sect Elder should have been there to catch her, yet she did not see any Galaxy Sect Elders. Her master, Galaxy Sect Master He Hui, was not around either.
Jing Moshuang’s heart sank. She had a bad feeling about this.
“Why is no one from the Galaxy Sect here, sister-in-law?” He Tai was also confused. Coming out of the Sky Screen was a big deal, so it stood to reason that all the sect experts would be waiting there for the disciples who had entered the Sky Screen.
Jing Moshuang was about to speak, when a crisp voice was heard. “I did not expect this. How could someone sneak out of the house and become a Galaxy Sect disciple? And why would one address you as sister-in-law? He he… Why did no one from the Galaxy Sect come?”
“Who are you?” As He Tai stared coldly at the pretty woman who had walked over, his tone was a bit uncomfortable.
“Her name is Jing Mobing. She is in the same sect as Qin Yin,” Jing Mo said calmly.
When He Tai heard the name Jing Mobing, he knew that the woman had to be related to Jing Moshuang. As he witnessed the conversation and attitude between them, it was clear that the two of them did not see eye to eye.
“If you are someone’s sister-in-law, then you must have a husband. Who was so blessed as to be able to marry someone like you? Oh, I forgot to tell you. The Galaxy Sect offended the Qi Family’s Commercial Building, so it was utterly destroyed by the Qi Family. Only a few people escaped…”
Before Jing Mobing could finish speaking, a trail of blood spurted from Jing Moshuang’s mouth. Her face was pale and her hands were trembling a little.
He Tai was also in a daze. Although the Galaxy Sect was a second-rate sect, it couldn’t be destroyed so easily, right?
“Don’t be sad, Moshuang. If you want to, you can join the True Li Sword Sect…” Qin Yin walked over and comforted her in a soft tone. She had misunderstood Di Jiu in the Sky Screen and caused He Tai and a few others to have mixed feelings about her. However, Qin Yin knew very well that Jing Moshuang and the others could become her friends.
“Senior Sister Qin Yin…” Although Jing Mobing held a good position in the True Li Sword Sect, she could not compare to Qin Yin. Therefore, when she saw Qin Yin comfort Jing Moshuang, she was somewhat unhappy.
Jing Moshuang calmed down before she said slowly, “Thank you, but I still want to go back to my sect. He Tai, check if the Tiny Treant has come out.”
Although she was a kind person who did not hold on to hatred, the Qi Family’s Commercial Building had destroyed the Galaxy Sect. This was something she just could not forget. Without the Galaxy Sect, there would be no Jing Moshuang. Sect Master He Hui and the elders of the sect had cared about her a lot.
Jing Moshuang wondered whether she was cursed. Di Jiu, who had helped her several times and saved her life twice, had died earlier. The Galaxy Sect, which had taken her in and cared for her, was also gone now.
“Senior Sister Moshuang…” Wei Shanshan ran over crying. Apparently, she had just heard that the Galaxy Sect had been extinguished. She couldn’t bear this kind of blow. Her master Wu Zhenzhen, who had treated her like his own daughter, had been killed by the Qi Family.
Qin Yin sighed and said, “The Tiny Treant is a demon plant. If its master is not around, it will not be transported from the Sky Screen, so it should still be in the Sky Screen.”
As Qin Yin was talking, a message that shocked the entire Sky Screen Square spread. The Book of the World had been taken by someone!
