Chapter 695: Terrified
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
The ladies fixated their gazes on him, staring fondly at the young man. He was just the same like when he had left the Ancestral Star. His eyes were as bright as before, but there was more to it — the vicissitudes of life that lurked deep within, the wisdoms that sedimented over the passage of time.
In the context of a common Qi Practitioner’s life, he was still just a teenager. But those 256 years of hardship that he pulled through had still bestowed him a great deal of wisdom.
Behind his head, the Six Paths Wheel was slowly turning. The Pan Gu Celestial sat in the center of the Dao Yi Realm, opened its six arms and lifted six light wheels in its palms.
The Six Paths Wheel was made up of many complex totem patterns that were so small that it appeared to be only as big as a little dot from afar. And it was these countless dots that formed the Six Paths Wheel.
Another stream of totem patterns that were black and white in floated around his shoulders before coming to a stop behind him.
As of his current appearance, Zhong Yue doesn’t look like an ordinary Qi Practitioner, but like a grand and solemn god. Although he was just standing on the edge of the pool, it felt like he was actually a few worlds away from them.
The two ladies came to his side, and they stood quietly by the pool. Zhong Yue felt his heart was emptied and filled with an unprecedented tranquility.
In the world that was full of strife and intrigue, such a feeling was far too rare.
He was in closed door training for 110 years and finally cultivated a Six Paths Reincarnation Dao. He found his “previous” mortal body and had regained his “previous” arcane energy and cultivation. Right now, his mortal body and skeleton body were perfectly integrated together.
His overall cultivation base had increased by more than 30%. Not only that, but his attainments in the True Spirit level were much deeper.
But this wasn’t the biggest reward. His biggest achievement was the fusion of his new with his “previous” soul, and that propelled him a great distance in the progress of awakening his Innate True Soul.
Although the Innate True Soul was only half-awakened, he was still receiving new insights every now and then. The new innate soul totem patterns were flowing into his mind every second and they turned into new knowledge that he picked up.
If the Innate True Soul was completely awakened, he would be much stronger than now. The time when his True Soul was awakened, would also mean that he would awaken the innate Yuan Shen as well!
Yuan Shen includes the spirit and soul. He has already awakened the Sun Moon Twin Spirit, and with his Innate True Soul awakened as well, they would form together as the innate Yuan Shen. That would make him the equivalent of one-fifth of an innate god, and such an achievement was unprecedented!
If the innate gods’ power were to be divided, there would be 5 innate parts that made them who they were. One of which was the innate Yuan Shen, followed by the innate blood, innate mortal body, innate Qi, and innate Dao. Thus, cultivating only the innate Yuan Shen would make Zhong Yue equivalent to one-fifth of an innate god.
Other than the innate Yuan Shen, the innate blood, innate mortal body, innate Qi, and innate Dao were many times more difficult to cultivate in comparison!
But even when all of the innate qualities were met, he still wouldn’t be able to transcend into a real innate god as the innate gods didn’t have an atman and mortal body. The innate gods’ body was both their mortal body and Yuan Shen at the same time. If he couldn’t achieve that, he would still be a line away from turning into a real innate god.
His aura was ethereal like an immortal to the outside world, while Qiu Jin’er’s aura was extremely gentle like a young sister next door, and Jun Sixie had the aura of a caring big sister. The three of them stood by the pool, talking and laughing like a family.
In addition to Feng Xiaozhong, the four of them were the only people who had walked out of the Ancestral Star, and they could only rely on each other.
A few days flashed by, and it was finally time to leave. Zhong Yue contacted Bai Canghai and Ma Sansou, and along with the ladies, they left the Song Realm together.
“Goddess Shen Hou, are you planning to leave as well?” Zhong Yue asked.
Goddess Shen Hou smiled and said, “Go, go, just do whatever you need to and I will follow. It’s good here, but the outside world is far more wonderful.”
Zhong Yue was relieved to hear her reply. With Goddess Shen Hou with them, even the Prison Realm Realm Lord would not dare to make a move.
Suddenly, the soul tokens started to glow. All the Qi Practitioners looked at their soul tokens in their hands. The totem patterns on the soul token swirled out of the token surface, gradually forming into small pillars. Then, the small totem pillars aligned themselves into a mini teleportation formation that hovered above the soul token.
The teleportation formation above the soul token was activated, and a beam shot through the firmament. Countless beams extended out from the Ancient Land of God Graves toward the end of the bridge.
As of now, there were only about 7,000 Qi Practitioners left in the Ancient Land of God Graves. Even though most died and only less than 10% survived, the scene of over 7,000 teleportation beams was still incredibly spectacular!
Meanwhile, Zhong Yue looked curiously at the soul token in his hand. When the teleportation formations began to trigger for the other Qi Practitioners, his soul token somehow remained unchanged.
Suddenly, his face changed slightly and he took out more than 2,000 soul tokens from his soul token. These soul tokens belonged to those that he had killed previously.
He looked at the soul tokens and found that they weren’t changing as well. Furthermore, the eyes of the soul beasts on the soul tokens were looking at him with derision.
Zhong Yue’s heart pounded and he thought, I killed the Prison Realm Realm Lord’s son, Fa Bisheng. These soul tokens were all made by the Prison Realm Realm Lord, which would explain why everyone’s soul tokens have commenced teleportation on everyone except for me. It seems like he is personally coming for me in the Ancient Land of God Graves!
“Senior martial brother!”
Qiu Jin’er screamed and quickly reached for Zhong Yue, but she was already caught by the teleportation beam and disappeared the next second.
Jun Sixie, Bai Canghai and Ma Sansou were also brought away by the teleportation beam, there was no time for them to hold onto him and bring him along!
At the same time, the Prison Realm’s Qi Practitioners were all sent away by the teleportation beams to the end of the godly bridge in the black hole. Only Zhong Yue alone was left behind.
“Why are you still here?” Goddess Shen Hou stood beside him and asked, “Aren’t you supposed to be teleported away as well?”
Zhong Yue took a long breath as his face turned solemn, “The Realm Lord is coming for me. Goddess, I don’t have the strength to leave the Ancient Land. Can you help me?”
Goddess Shen Hou smiled and said, “Of course, how difficult can it be?”
At the same time time outside the Ancient Land of God Graves, in the Prison Realm Divine Court, Realm Lord Fa Zhaozhen suddenly shook the Dharma Kings off from his body. The Dharma Kings landed on their own and saw Fa Zhaozhen walk toward the black hole before disappearing into the Ancient Land of God Graves.
At the same time, Heavenly King Shang also shook his eight generals off of his body and followed behind him into the Ancient Land of God Graves.
The Dharma Kings, the eight generals, and the remaining gods immediately joined forces and powered the Divine Court to resist the unparalleled force from the black hole.
The 71,000 Qi Practitioners that were killed in the Ancient Land of God Graves didn’t only die, but their remains were also sacrificed to the the Ancient Land to reduce the Ancient Land’s danger level. Thus, allowing Fa Zhaozhen and Heavenly King Shang to enter the Ancient Land.
The Ancient Land was unpredictably precarious, even the 78,000 Qi Practitioners couldn’t explore all of the fortunes and treasures in it. And in fact, the treasures they found were just a tiny part of the actual fortunes that the Ancient land had to offer. There were far more secrets in the Ancient Land that even the experts of the like of Zhong Yue couldn’t pass through the dangers there.
However, Fa Zhaozhen and Heavenly King Shang possessed were two such individuals who were capable of forcing their way through such dangers. And as the dangers in the Ancient Land of God Graves were greatly reduced, they had the right opportunity to enter and explore the secrets in it.
“Moreover, you’ve killed my son, how can I ever let you live?” In just a few steps, Fa Zhaozhen had already entered the Ancient Land of God Graves and started to make his way toward Zhong Yue’s position. Zhong Yue was still holding the soul token that he personally forged, making it impossible for Zhong Yue to run away from him.
It was purely due to his mood whether if he wanted to teleport Zhong Yue away, but he must say, his was in a very bad mood now.
Zhong Yue was still on the same spot, and a sudden voice rammed into his ears from all directions. It came from above the sky, and rumbled like thunder, shaking the heavens and the earth.
A terrible divine aura descended from the sky, reminiscent of the majestic emperor of the gods, overwhelming everything else.
Right after, there was another surge of divine aura that followed behind. It descended from the sky above and a peal of laughter rang out while it asked, “Realm Lord, you found the arrogant child who killed your son?”
Zhong Yue looked up and saw two stalwart figures walking down in the air. They were covered in glaring golden lights, making it extremely difficult for him to look at them directly.
Zhong Yue was already one of the strongest Qi Practitioners, but in the face of such pressure, he was almost forced to kneel on the ground without any resistance!
After all, they were the Realm Lord and Heavenly King Shang. Every move they made seemed to bear the the will of the heavens and earth. Whether it was their cultivation or temperament, they were far beyond Zhong Yue’s reach!
Realm Lord Fa Zhaozhen’s and Heavenly King Shang’s aura filled every corner of the world as they slowly walked down. Suddenly, they saw the woman standing beside Zhong Yue, and the two emperors became startled a little.
Heavenly King Shang asked curiously, “Realm Lord, why didn’t you teleport this lady away?”
Fa Zhaozhen shook his head, “I have never seen her before from the soul tokens. She might not be one of the Qi Practitioners of the Prison Realm…”
Suddenly, his face changed dramatically and he looked at Goddess Shen Hou again in utter shock while his body shuddered.
Heavenly King Shang’s face also changed drastically, and his body shivered in fear.
In that instant, the two emperors didn’t dare to make a single move.
An innate god!
An innate god that walked out from the Ancient Land of God Graves!
The two emperors suddenly muffled a groan. They felt a boundless aura that was unparalleled even to the two emperors. The aura was on a higher level than the Realm Monarch’s aura, and it carried the breath of nature and evoked the fundamental laws of the universe.
The sounds of bones cracking and muscles crumbling could be heard from inside the two emperors’ body. In just seconds, the two emperors were pressured and shrunk down to only three inches high.
“Realm Lord, Heavenly King Shang, do you have any orders for me?” Zhong Yue looked down at the two emperors and asked.
The two emperors struggled to turn their necks and tardily shook their heads.
“If there’s nothing I can do for you, then please excuse me as I leave,” Zhong Yue smiled.
Goddess Shen Hou then brought him away as they blasted into the sky into a stream of light. Even though she had left, Goddess Shen Hou’ aura still lingered the surroundings, suppressing the two emperors so that they could hardly move.
One year in the Ancient Land of God Graves equaled one day in the outside world. The innate aura pressured the two emperors on the same spot for a whole year before it slowly dispersed. The emperors’ were soaked in their own cold sweat, they exchanged a look and could still see the fear in each other’s eyes.
