However, what could he even do? Could divine medicines and other things preserve these people?
Next Chapter “Yan Hai?” Long Yao’s eyes became as big as saucers. The person on the platform was the last person he had expected to see!
It was the same Jun Wu Xie who should have been at that moment, consumed by hatred and plotting her revenge that was standing defiantly in the middle of the arena. All the applause and cheers in the arena were for her!
The most powerful person in the 72 cities left everyone in the arena dumbfounded. Nobody thought that Jun Wu Xie would appear in the arena at that moment.
In fact, although today’s selection was more exciting than previous days, it was still being fought by weaker exponents. The real contenders would only appear later, yet Jun Wu Xie suddenly appeared.
Her appearance had whipped everyone in the arena into a frenzy!
In all the 72 cities, was there anyone who did not know who she was and how powerful she was?
As she stood on the platform, all remaining challengers hoping to show their strength felt totally defeated!
What a joke!
How were they going to fight?
They were only at the level of Spiritual Inscriptions and could be crushed by any Spirit Ring bearer, not to mention someone like Jun Wu Xie who possessed a Dual Spirit Ring!
All those from the Golden Peak Pinnacle cowered into a corner and all the Spiritual Inscription warriors unconsciously started retreating from the platform that could spell certain death for them. Even the strong Spirit Ring Bearers, upon seeing Jun Wu Xie, started twitching uncontrollably.
What did this person actually want?
Who would dare to challenge a Dual Spirit Ring bearer?
After the cheers, an eerie silence permeated the arena….
The winner of the last round barely had time to savour his victory before his great joy got devoured by an even greater fear when he saw Jun Wu Xie.
Jun Wu Xie looked at him coldly, turning his legs into jelly. She said nothing but he gasped in fear and scrambled off the platform.
Come n, fight with a Dual Spirit Ring bearer?!
He was not tired of living!!
Jun Wu Xie was the only one left on the platform. She steadily turned her ice gaze towards the one in the highest chair, Long Yao!
When Long Yao’s eyes met Jun Wu Xie, there was no wavering in his heart. On the first day of the selections, he had already seen the youth and other than a cool demeanor, could not discern anything related to her character. But today, looking at her steely gaze, he could feel her murderous intent!
Jun Wu Xie had come filled with hatred, ready to take revenge.
In a way that Long Yao did not expect….
Imagine. The moment Jun Wu Xie stood on the platform, her Dual Spirit Ring was enough to deter all the contestants in the selection. With her strength, who would dare to enter the ring? !!
Long Yao had calculated everything, except the possibility of Jun Wu Xie being able to think of such a thorough method of revenge while experiencing such anger and hate.
As long as nobody went up the platform, Jun Wu Xie could challenge the Top Ten masters directly!
There was no need to wait at all! – Appeared in Both Past and Present
This affected Shi Hao way too much. He was already extremely strong, yet he was still so helpless. Age was something that couldn’t be defied, not even someone as powerful as a supreme being had any way of reversing this.
“Grandpa Chief!” Shi Hao supported him. Shi Yunfeng really was old, now old and gray-haired, blood energy dried up, body weak.
“I won’t let Grandpa Chief continue to get older.” Shi Hao said. He produced a bottle of liquid, wishing for Shi Yunfeng to drink it. This was immortal blood he gathered from the dam world, already refined, obtaining some undying matter.
The instant he opened the container, everyone was moved. There was a clear fragrance that wafted out from within, the droplets of blood inside like exquisite wine.
It had been repeatedly refined, the killing energy and harmful substances all refined away, already becoming great medicine.
Shi Hao spent a century there, but he only ended up refining a few containers. This liquid was priceless, even more precious than divine medicines after they entered the Cultivationless Age.
Under the current sky, he was the only one who could refine this immortal blood!
Even though the essence had flowed away, with only some bits remaining, others still couldn’t refine it. Their bodies would explode before they even got close to the immortal corpse, the immortal dao force was incomparable.
When Clan Chief Shi Yunfeng understood what this was, he had a gratified expression on his face, fulfilled and calm. “Foolish child, you can prolong grandpa’s life for a bit, perhaps one, two, or three eras, right? In this lifetime, I already have no regrets. Being able to watch you grow up, seeing how you can already look down on the world, what else is there for me to complain about? Grandpa can’t accompany you for your entire life, I cannot reach a level where I can coexist with the world, becoming undying. I am only an ordinary elder. In life, what is worth having the most, are joy and peace, and I already have both, I always had them during these years. I am already content.”
The old clan chief patted his hand, his face carrying a benevolent smile, incredibly satisfied. So many years passed, his old companions already all left this world, he also wished to see them now.
Shi Yunfeng refused, not ingesting the immortal blood. He knew that his own grandson needed it more than him. In the future, if there was a vicious battle, this would definitely be a life-saving treasure.
However, how could Shi Hao give up? The old clan chief raised him up, influencing his entire life, the one he was least willing to see dead. At night, he quietly refined the medicinal blood into the old clan chief’s body, ensuring that he didn’t die from old age.
“We’re going to battle!”
Shi Hao didn’t immediately bring them back to the dam world, instead starting to explore the world, opening all types of secret realms.
During this period, he gathered all types of ancient books and records. He listened to some legends of the locals, and then used these as clues, searching the world’s remains and other places.
In several years, he opened up four or five small worlds, all of them left behind from the ancient times. They were all great treasuries.
“Wall of Gods and Devils!”
This was a place of self tempering. For the sake of heading into the higher realms, when he was young, Shi Hao searched for all kinds of different paths, previously heading there. However, it was quite regrettable, the path there had already been cut short.
That path had already been used by a giant tortoise. The massive tortoise with Supreme Hall on its back ascended into the higher realms through the Wall of Gods and Devils.
Even though Shi Hao didn’t successfully use this place back then, it left him with a deep impression.
“Wall of Gods and Devils, scars of the archaic times!” He didn’t forget these eight words.
The carvings of gods and devils were incredibly astonishing. There were all types of stone engravings and battlefields. One could fight with many archaic vicious spirits here.
Inside of every single stone gate, there would be a powerful creature that corresponded with the stone engraving!
At this point, how could Shi Hao not know what kind of place this was? It was a place used by the ancient people to train troops. When the Immortal Ancient Great Era was destroyed, there were surviving experts who were unwilling, creating this training ground.
Those were predecessors who died in war!
Just how many years separated those who built the wall and the so-called Immortal Ancient Great Era? That was an era that should be called archaic.
“The woman who folded paper boats…”
Shi Hao became absent-minded. In one of the stone engravings, he saw the paper boat folding woman.
His eyes became deep, as if he could peer through time and space, gazing all the way to the Kun Peng nest. He previously discovered black paper boats that were dyed in blood there.
“They don’t seem to be people who belong to this time-space. Why is it that she also left behind some traces here?” Shi Hao thought to himself.
Soon afterwards, he became absentminded. This should be something created by others.
Only, were there people who met the paper boat folding woman even before the archaic times?
“Yi, why is this engraving so similar to a person?” Cao Yusheng cried out in alarm.
When he walked out of his burial cave, he moved together with Shi Hao, entering the higher realms. The Heavenly Horned Ant was also like this, following him here right now.
“Ye Qingxian?!” The Heavenly Horned Ant was also shocked.
There were many remains here. They discovered that there were also some engravings of Ye Qingxian.
These two had both visited Desolate Border’s Imperial Pass, they had met Ye Qingxian.
Shi Hao was stunned. Even he was shocked. How could this be? How could Ye Qingxian already have appeared before the archaic times? There were already people who saw her in that age, carving her here?
How was this possible? That was clearly a young lady, Shi Hao had more than one interaction with her. He never sensed an aura of great changes from her body.
What was going on here?
In the end, it had already been a long time since he met Ye Qingxian. After the Desolate Border War completely ended, Ye Qingxian disappeared.
“We actually made this discovery…”
Shi Hao, the Heavenly Horned Ant, and Cao Yusheng all felt a deep sense of shock, finding it hard to understand. In the end, Shi Hao ordered Mu Qing and the others to investigate this, to search through the various lands.
Not long afterwards, they headed into the higher realms. Shi Hao personally made arrangements, using the influence of ‘Imperial Court’ to find all types of clues regarding Ye Qingxian.
In the end, he was shocked. There really were clues in the Nine Heavens Ten Earths. Someone found her statue in certain remains!
“How is that possible?!” Cao Yusheng was stunned. He had also met Ye Qingxian. That was an old monster?
However, this should be the case!
Based on what they learned in Imperial Pass, Ye Qingxian was only a young lady, not an old witch.
“There are more clues!”
Mu Qing received a report, informing Shi Hao.
It was rumored that many years ago, there were people who previously saw Ye Qingxian’s statue in Origin Ancient Mine.
Origin Ancient Mine, the inside was extremely mysterious, those who entered almost all died, difficult for them to continue living. There were all types of dangers and oddities.
However, in the end, there were still some who were lucky enough to come out alive.
For example, Shi Hao, he himself went in there before, obtaining the hand gestures of Six Dao Reincarnations from that place.
“It seems like it is time to make a trip there.” Shi Hao said.
“You are going to go into Origin Ancient Mine?” Cao Yusheng and the Heavenly Horned Ant both opposed it, because that place was too strange, now already sealed up.
“I am now already a supreme being, it’s time to take a look. I recall that there is even a stalk of long life medicine inside. If possible, I wish to bring it out.” Shi Hao insisted on proceeding, not feeling any fear.
Origin Ancient Mine was peaceful and boundless. In the past, there was a lot of black blood that flowed out. It was sealed up by many people working together, it had now already been many years since anyone approached.
In the end, Shi Hao went down, advancing alone, rejecting all others who wished to go with him.
Below, there were many paths, complex like a maze. Back then, Shi Hao almost died, but now, he advanced in a calm manner, not facing any dangers.
“Turns out it was like this, actually a gate. Hm? It leads to Immortal Domain?”
Shi Hao revealed a strange expression. The aura from that gate was extremely familiar, it was not the first time he sensed it. It was similar to the gate Shi Hao used when he entered this realm before.
He never expected there to be a gate hidden in this Origin Ancient Mine! However, it had already been completely sealed!
In the past, the protectors’ descendant Dugu Yun had also found this place, wishing to find clues regarding his ancestors. However, in the end, black blood poured out, forcing him to flee in a sorry state.
Shi Hao tried to attack it, see if he could smash through it in one strike. If he could, then he could enter Immortal Domain through this entrance. This was clearly a path.
In that instant, a mysterious aura surged. Black blood seeped out from that gate, pouring out.
“It really is strange… isn’t this a gate that leads to Immortal Domain? Why is there an inauspicious aura, black blood seeping out?”
Shi Hao continued to attack it. That gate remained unaffected, only inauspicious black blood flowing out, appearing here.
“My path of return, who is knocking on it?” An indistinct and weak voice sounded, as if it came from billions of years ago, as if there was an endless world separating them, the long river of time standing in between.
In that instant, Shi Hao was shaken. He knew what kind of place this was.
However, what could he even do? Could divine medicines and other things preserve these people?
