Nie Changqing ran around at full speed . The Dragon Slaying Knife in his hand released endless energy . The golden gleam of the knife swept the knife spirit along and almost melted the snow on the ground .
Nie Changqing felt tremendous pressure as if he was slacklining and might fall into the dark abyss if he was careless for a split second .
The disciple of Wudi City in front of him was in the sixth level of the Golden Elixir Realm, possessing extraordinary power .
He had the upper hand over Nie Changqing in speed, strength, and stamina .
The only things Nie Changqing could rely on were the knife spirit and the unbeatable Qi and blood he gained when unlocking the Heavenly Lock .
This sixth-level Golden Elixir disciple’s name was Ye Qianxun . He watched Nie Changqing with intense interest . The Spirit Qi and explosive power of a sixth-level Golden Elixir cultivator were over six times more than those of an ordinary first-level one .
Nie Changqing seemed like a child brandishing a weapon in front of a fully grown adult .
Although he could cause some damage, he wasn’t overly threatening .
“Is this knife called the Dragon Slaying Knife?
“What a wonderful weapon,” Ye Qianxun said .
The two fought outside of the city, snow swirling in the air due to the impact .
The force of the knives deeply gashed several dead trees .
Nie Changqing was an experienced fighter . He achieved the current level through numerous matches and battles .
He knew that he would certainly lose if this fight dragged on any longer .
After all, a sixth-level Golden Elixir cultivator had a much higher Spirit Qi capacity .
Nie Changqing concentrated his mind .
Four magic talismans fell into his hand . He used his Spiritual Sense to activate the magic talismans .
Xie Yunling of the Daoist Pavilion conducted extensive research and compressed the Daoist method into the magic talismans . He gave these valuable tools to Nie Changqing .
It had tremendous power when combined with elemental Spirit Qi .
Nie Changqing used one magic talisman when he was running . However, he still had four left .
The four magic talismans were activated .
He applied the Daoist method naturally and smoothly .
There were flaming red, earthy brown, shiny gold, and wooden green…
Four elemental colors exploded around Nie Changqing’s body and transfigured into four elemental beasts .
Nie Changqing lunged forward and pressed in on Ye Qianxun .
Ye Qianxun’s face turned grave .
Nevertheless, Nie Changqing reached him first .
He took out a small metal bead from his inside pocket .
Nie Changqing tossed the metal bead up . The bead blossomed into a gorgeous pear flower, dazzling and drifting in the air .
“What is this?!”
Ye Qianxun was astonished .
He vaguely sensed a hint of menace on the pear flower .
“Why do you have so many magic tools!”
Ye Qianxun took in a deep breath .
He emitted a ray of golden light as the golden elixir floated around him . The Spirit Qi spun and formed an indistinct shield and revolved around his body .
Nie Changqing remained cold and emotionless .
“This is…Pear Blossom in the Storm, the best hidden weapon!”
Nie Changqing threw a solid punch before his voice faded off . The Qi and blood made a deafening sound .
The punch hit the Spirit Qi shield . Nie Changqing’s fist was bloody and bruised at once, but the rapidly spinning shield of Spirit Qi also stopped moving!
A series of waves rolled in the air .
Heat eaves shimmied off the field and completely melted the snow on the ground .
The delicate pear flower spun at full tilt and threw out countless thin silver needles like a torrential downpour . The needles were all scorched red by the flames .
Ye Qianxun stamped his feet so hard that he dented the ground . He wanted to retreat, but it was too late .
The Pear Blossom in the Storm covered the entire area, leaving no corner out .
In fact, the needles even surrounded Nie Changqing .
The sound of the needles piercing the skin could be heard .
There were also howls of the beats that were transformed from the magic talismans .
When the snow melted only silver needles were left on the ground .
Ye Qianxun’s back was dotted with needles . Every one of them pierced his skin .
Nevertheless, he didn’t die .
He stood up and used the Spirit Qi to blast the silver needles away .
“Pear Blossom in the Storm…”
“What a magic tool made with unmatched workmanship,” Ye Qianxun exclaimed .
He looked at the direction where Nie Changqing disappeared and said, “Hurting yourself to injure me . How ruthless . ”
What on earth was behind the Void Gate?
Ye Qianxun was more and more intrigued .
Instead of chasing Nie Changqing, he turned back and walked to the direction of Wudi City . He felt a vibration coming from Wudi City when he was fighting Nie Changqing . It was so strong that he could sense it clearly from so far away .
Something terrible probably happened .
Behind a dead tree .
Nie Changqing leaned against the tree, his eyelashes fluttering . Everything was quiet around him . He could only hear the sound of snow falling on the ground .
His hand and back were bruised and still bleeding . His breathing became faint .
“Master Gongshu dares to challenge the Young Master, as befits his reputation… This Pear Blossom in the Storm is truly potent . ”
“But the penetrating ability could be improved . I need to tell Master Gongshu when I’m back . ”
Nie Changqing quietly coughed up some blood .
He laughed in a low voice . At least he survived .
The sixth-level Golden Elixir cultivator was very powerful .
A Golden Elixir cultivator could try to move up to the Nascent Soul Realm when he reached the fifth level . Meanwhile, a sixth-level Golden Elixir fighter would have already pushed the limits and shook off the shackles .
The snow was cold, yet Nie Changqing’s heart felt warm .
He held the Dragon Slaying Knife and slowly propped himself up .
All of a sudden .
Nie Changqing jolted as an icy knot began to form in the pit of his stomach .
In the distance .
In the flurrying snow .
A man walked slowly while the falling snow twisted around his body .
The terrifying energy and pressure made Nie Changqing unable to move a finger!
Nie Changqing could only hear his own breathing .
“Amituofo . ”
Nie Changqing heard a chanting sound .
Nie Changqing finally saw the man clearly . It was a bald, bare-footed monk in tattered clothes . Each of the Buddhist beads around his neck was the size of a fist .
“I’m Yuanshang from Kufo Temple… Nice to meet you . ”
The Buddhist monk held one hand in front of him and bowed lightly at Nie Changqing .
The monk was extremely powerful!
Sweat dripped down Nie Changqing’s forehead .
He was speechless from the pressure this Buddhist monk made him feel .
He was even mightier than the Nascent Soul cultivator Nie Changqing met before!
Nie Changqing bellowed, hoping to break away from the restraint . He didn’t want to die yet . He didn’t want to die here .
He needed to make it back alive!
Nie Changqing was unresigned . He had tempered the first four bones . Now he successfully broke the second-section Heavenly Lock and let out a deep roar while stretching his dragonlike spine .
The restraint brought by the Buddhist monk vanished in an instant .
Nie Changqing moved up to the second level of the Heavenly Lock Realm at the critical moment .
The ground underneath his feet blew up and thrust him backward . He held the Dragon Slaying Knife in his hand and struck at the monk forcefully with a beam of golden light .
“Amituofo, you’re a man with a perverse nature…” the Buddhist monk said .
He flicked his fingers gently .
The force of Nie Changqing’s knife shattered instantaneously, making an exploding sound .
The Buddhist monk stepped forward and appeared behind Nie Changqing .
“You’re in the Nascent Soul Realm . Do you have the nerve to kill me?”
“Young Master said that he will kill you all if you dare to join the fight!”
Nie Changqing clenched his teeth .
“Don’t doubt the Young Master . He will keep his words!”
“Amituofo,” said the monk .
“I never wanted to hurt you . I’m only asking you to take a trip with me . ”
Then, before Nie Changqing could answer…
The ascetic monk carried Nie Changqing’s body and sprang upward . He strode in the middle of the air as though he was riding the wind .
Beiluo Lake Island .
Lu Fan slowly opened his eyes .
Calm and expressionless, he sat in the wheelchair . His fingers gently tapped the armrest of the chair .
“Slay the Immortals?”
“As I expected, the best cultivators in the world are not stupid . They’re bold and resolute enough to devise a plan to slay the Immortals . ”
Lu Fan smiled .
His eyes sparkled . The mist that enshrouded Beiluo Lake Island dissipated .
He stared vacantly at the shimmering surface of the lake .
Would the fighters in the Wuhuang Continent also choose to slay the Immortals one day?
Would they come after him?
Lu Fan ruminated .
Lu Fan smiled after a while .
“I have been earnestly devoting myself to the prosperity and success of this continent . ”
All of a sudden .
Lu Fan found out that his Spirit Qi reserves increased a great deal .
He was confused for a moment and then suddenly thought of something .
“It’s very true that pressure can motivate people to move forward . Did Old Nie…just have a breakthrough?”
Lu Fan was immersed in thought .
He recovered from the daze and raised his hand . Numerous lines bounced in his eyes as he triggered off his consciousness .
He could see the lines formed a building on the Spirit Pressure Chessboard placed in front of him .
Lu Fan stretched out his hand, pinched the building, and flung it to the direction of Beiluo Lake .
A building subsequently popped up on Beiluo Lake, enveloped in a misty haze . It wasn’t a lavish pavilion, yet it made people feel calm and peaceful .
The building stored tens of thousands of books that Lu Fan edited and restored using the All Method Furnace .
After reading everything in the Scriptures Depository of Wudi City, Lu Fan thought this could be a tremendous help for the Wuhuang Continent .
Although he provided two ways of cultivation—Golden Elixir and Heavenly Lock…
Lu Fan believed that the Heavenly Lock was a more difficult path that he couldn’t force everyone to follow . Therefore, Lu Fan hoped these books in the Scriptures Depository could help many cultivators who couldn’t go through the Heavenly Lock Realm advance through the Golden Elixir Realm .
Above Beiluo Lake .
A bamboo raft quietly floated on the water . Lv Dongxuan lit the stove and grilled the fish . The little Responsive Dragon was drooling and watching from the other side of the bamboo raft .
Lv Dongxuan kept a weather eye on the little Responsive Dragon, in case it stole the fish .
All of a sudden .
Lv Dongxuan heard Lu Fan’s voice in his head .
“Come to the island . ”
Lu Fan’s voice startled Lv Dongxuan . He turned around and looked at the direction of Beiluo Lake Island . “Did the Young Master come out of seclusion?”
Then, Lv Dongxuan seemed to remember something . He turned his head and saw the little Responsive Dragon flying away with the grilled fish in its mouth .
“It stole my fish again!”
Lv Dongxuan was irritated . But there was nothing he could do .
He had no choice but to pole the raft toward Beiluo Lake Island .
The bamboo raft pulled in to shore .
Lv Dongxuan straightened out his clothes and walked toward White Jade City Pavilion with long strides .
He gestured at Lu Fan who was leaning on the railings on the second floor of White Jade City Pavilion .
“Young Master . ”
Lu Fan held the bronze wine cup and nodded slightly .
“Do you see the building there?”
Lu Fan raised his hand and pointed somewhere on Beiluo Lake . A pavilion, shrouded in mist, came into sight .
Lv Dongxuan was shocked . Why would there be a pavillion on Beiluo Lake?
He never noticed it before . Did the Young Master just build it?
“It is called the Book House . You take a walk inside and see if you can learn something there,” Lu Fan said .
Lv Dongxuan was puzzled . The Book House?
Was it a place for books?
There was a place to store books on Beiluo Lake now?
Despite the bewilderment, Lv Dongxuan bowed at Lu Fan and rowed the bamboo raft toward the Book House .
He pushed the door of the Book House open . Lv Dongxuan was dazzled the moment he stepped foot inside .
The candles burned and flickered quietly in the Book House and lit up the dim room .
Lv Dongxuan inhaled a deep breath . The number of books here was mind-blowing . He picked one book casually .
“Roaring Tiger Technique, a technique of sound wave in Earth Level Low Grade . Cultivators who master the technique can roar like a tiger and disrupt the enemies’ minds . ”
Lv Dongxuan’s hand trembled . Was this…a cultivation technique?
He put the book back and pulled out another one . Lv Dongxuan read it closely and realized that it was another cultivation technique that he had never heard before .
Lv Dongxuan shook his head in silent wonderment .
He kept reading the books as if he just discovered a brand new world .
He even found several cultivation methods!
There were only a few cultivation methods that were circulating in the world .
However, there were so many different kinds of cultivation methods right here in this Book House… Lv Dongxuan held the book as if it was a hot potato . Young Master was ready to do something big!
Lv Dongxuan quickly walked out of the Book House and rowed back to Beiluo Lake Island .
Lv Dongxuan bowed .
“Have you looked at it?” Lu Fan asked with a smile .
“What do you think?” Lu Fan asked after taking a sip of the green plum wine .
“I think these books can have a profound influence on the cultivators if they’re circulated in the world . They can organize the cultivators, set a common goal, and help everyone develop rapidly…” Lv Dongxuan said .
His comment was to the point . It was fitting to say the cultivators were currently in a state of disunity .
Besides White Jade City, the cultivator armies of different power groups had been throwing their weight around nowadays .
It was not even close to realizing the Contention of the Hundred Schools of Thought of cultivators .
Lu Fan smiled, sitting in the wheelchair .
He nodded slightly .
He completely agreed with Lv Dongxuan’s opinion .
“Go . Go to West Mountain of Beiluo and summon all of those cultivators who camp at the foot of the mountain back here . They have been staying there for a long time without actually learning anything… The Book House will be open to all cultivators in the following month . It will close after a month . By that time, only accomplished people can enter the Book House,” Lu Fan said .
Lv Dongxuan was surprised .
Open for a month?
“Yes . ”
Lv Dongxuan nodded . He was certain that Lu Fan’s decision would be extremely influential in the world of cultivators .
“Young Master, what kind of accomplishment do they have to achieve to enter the Book House after a month?” Lv Dongxuan asked out of curiosity .
“I will tell you when the time comes…”
Lu Fan waved his hand dismissively .
Lv Dongxuan stopped asking . He bowed and went back to the bamboo raft annd then rowed away from Beiluo Lake Island .
Lu Fan stared at Lv Dongxuan’s receding figure .
He gently shook the bronze wine cup in his hand .
All of a sudden .
Lines started to bounce in his eyes again . Lu Fan squinted .
“They captured Old Nie… What do these people want?”Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
