Chapter 1050: Breakthrough, Mid-Level Martial Supreme (1)

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

"This must be the blazing cave that Xiao Yu had mentioned."

Gu Ruoyun paused outside a mountain cave. She could feel the scorching temperature from the cave and her gaze slowly became serious. She gently exhaled and murmured, "The Dragon Phoenix Fruit should be inside but I also sense a powerful aura at the end of the cave..."

Nevertheless, for the sake of restoring Yu'er's arm, she did not care too much about it.

She took a step forward at the thought of this and entered the cave.

As she set foot into the cave, a wave of heat rose from the cave floor. Gu Ruoyun did not hesitate and quickly walked deeper into the cave.

"The Blood Moon Blossom is a medicinal herb which accompanies the Dragon Phoenix Fruit. Wherever there's a Dragon Phoenix Fruit, there will be Blood Moon Blossom as well. However, the land which contains Blood Moon Blossom might not have any Dragon Phoenix Fruit. Still, even if there is only a small sliver of hope, I must try."

Not long after entering the cave, Gu Ruoyun stumbled upon the little Blood Moon Blossoms. However, she could not see any Dragon Phoenix Fruit in the area surrounding the blood-colored flowers. 

Gu Ruoyun guessed that Qin Hao must have picked the Blood Moon Blossoms from the ones which were growing here. After all, based on his body, he would not be able to venture any deeper into the blazing cave.

"Master, something doesn't feel right in this place."

Yunyao's voice rang out from within her soul.

"I know."

Gu Ruoyun fell momentarily silent before she replied, "For Yu'er's sake, I have to try."


Yunyao sighed gently as she reminded, "Master, Lord Zixie is still undergoing his breakthrough and we're powerless to help you too. You must be very careful and be wary of your safety."

"I understand."

Gu Ruoyun gently lifted her head. Her eyes were filled with determination.

She has always greatly valued her life. If she were to ever lose her life, the people around her would be in grave danger. So, no matter what, she had to protect herself.

The scorching temperature grew even hotter as she journeyed deeper into the cave. It was a good thing that Gu Ruoyun was already a Martial Supreme. Coupled with the specialties in her body, this was not much of a problem for her to endure.

Suddenly, she paused and fixed her gaze straight ahead as a rush of joy slowly filled her clear and cold eyes.

Right in front of her, a bright red fruit shaped like a dragon's head resting on fiery-red leaves entered her line of sight. The red fruit was surrounded by clusters of little blood-colored flowers.

"The Dragon Phoenix Fruit! It's shaped like the head of a dragon and has the color of blood. It seems that its name does indeed translate to reality. However..."

Gu Ruoyun furrowed her brows. As she stepped closer to the Dragon Phoenix Fruit, the dangerous aura became closer as well, heightening her senses. She did not dare to relax at all.

"Master, watch out!"

An anxious cry rang out from within her soul.

Suddenly, a fiery light came spiraling out from within the blazing cave, followed by a scorching temperature that could burn one's soul alive! A powerful red flame burst throughout the entire cave, casting a brilliant red light. 

"Hahaha, this Holy One has been waiting in this cave for many years now. I've finally found a satisfying body! Little girl, loan your flesh to me! Then I can leave this wretched place!"

As the wild laughter died down, the creature which had resided in the deep recesses of the cave finally showed his face.

It was a gigantic flaming dragon!

His entire body was made of flames, making it look dominant and unrivaled. That large body hovered within the blazing cave, giving off a powerful sense of oppression.

The initially straight-faced Gu Ruoyun could not stop herself from bursting into laughter when she saw the flaming dragon which had appeared before her.

"A flaming dragon's spirit? If your body were here, perhaps I would have felt threatened. However, you are only a spirit! I need not worry about a spirit."

Gu Ruoyun raised her brow and stared at the flaming dragon's transparent body as she slowly replied.

"Hmph, don't spout such wild words, little girl!" the flaming dragon scoffed icily. "I may be a spirit now but I can still destroy you! This Holy One has been imprisoned here for so many years and many humans had blundered in before. I had turned my back on their inferior talents so I burned them into ashes! However, your talents aren't bad. As long as you give your physical body to me, I will spare your life!"

Hearing this, Gu Ruoyun smiled. "Give my physical body to you? How is that any different from death?"

"You..." The flaming dragon glared at her. He then spoke arrogantly, "That's still better than having your soul scattered into nothing! Besides, little girl, if you had left when you had just entered the blazing cave, perhaps you could have avoided this stand-off. Yet you had insisted on entering deeper into the cave! Isn't this the same as presenting your physical body to me on a silver platter? You can't blame me for enjoying this!"

The flaming dragon had been imprisoned here and he could only move around the area surrounding the Dragon Phoenix Fruit.

This was the reason why Qin Hao had been able to leave with his life.

The flaming dragon could not possibly reach that area near the cave's entrance! Had he ventured any deeper, he might have ended up losing his life like everyone else without even leaving a corpse!

"If I refuse?" Gu Ruoyun mildly lifted her gaze and an icy chill slowly filled the smile on her lips.


The flaming dragon laughed in spite of his rage, his red eyes looked as if they were spitting fire. "If you won't do this the easy way, little human girl, we'll do it the hard way. Don't blame me for twisting your soul and scattering it into the air!"


As he finished talking, the flaming dragon roared angrily and swatted his long tail towards Gu Ruoyun.


The flaming dragon's tail struck Gu Ruoyun's body, causing her to stumble a few steps back. A small trickle of blood began to drip down from the corner of her lips.

Generally speaking, once any living thing loses its life, its spirit would turn into a being with no substance.

Just like the white dragon.

Even though he was a weapon spirit and was visible to the eye, one could not touch him physically!

However, the person who had imprisoned the flaming dragon seems to have done something that provided his spirit with an essence. The tail which had hit Gu Ruoyun had nearly smashed her ribs.

"Human, this Holy One shall give you one last chance. Will you give me your physical body or not?"

The flaming dragon stared down at Gu Ruoyun, looking rather arrogant as if the woman beneath him was as tiny as an insect! He, on the other hand, was like a deity sitting high above her.

"Even if you asked me a hundred times, my answer will remain the same! I make the decisions over my own body. I will never give it to you."

Gu Ruoyun wiped the trail of blood from the corner of her lips as she rose to her feet.

"Hmph. You are ignorant and arrogant!"

The flaming dragon no longer bothered to discuss bullsh*t with her. He hurled his dragon's breath from his mouth, aiming it towards Gu Ruoyun.


The dragon's breath was like a flaming tornado as it slammed fiercely onto Gu Ruoyun's body. Gu Ruoyun was pushed several steps back. Her fine, black hair gently fluttered in the wind as an icy chill appeared within her clear and cold gaze.

"Human, you are rather stubborn but this Holy One will take your body!"

The flaming dragon burst into derisive laughter. His large body was like a hurricane as it spiraled towards Gu Ruoyun.

During this short period of time, Gu Ruoyun had already grasped the scale of power that the flaming dragon was capable of.

Perhaps this dragon had been a Martial Saint during his golden age but he has now been reduced to only a spirit! He no longer has the ability to release his true power! Even so, it would not be easy to defeat him.


Slam, slam, slam!

Perhaps the flaming dragon was afraid of harming Gu Ruoyun's body. Hence, he did not utilize his dragon breath against her anymore. Instead, he slammed his huge body continuously against Gu Ruoyun's chest, causing her bile to rise up from within her throat. However, she fiercely swallowed it.

"Damned reptile!"

The Vermillion Bird screamed with rage from within Gu Ruoyun's soul and shrieked furiously, "If it wasn't for the fact that the Ancient Divine Pagoda has been sealed at the moment, this reptile wouldn't dare act so arrogantly in front of me! Master, get out of this place first. Wait until I can come out and fight for you then we can return and make him pay."

Gu Ruoyun did not answer. Her eyes were turned towards the Dragon Phoenix Fruit behind the flaming dragon. Determination filled her clear and cold gaze once again.

"You're only a spirit. I've said it before, if you were a complete flaming dragon, perhaps I would really be afraid. Unfortunately, the one thing that I, Gu Ruoyun, have never been afraid of is spirits!"


Gu Ruoyun's body suddenly turned into a ray of light and charged towards the flaming dragon.

The flaming dragon shocked. He never thought that not only does this little girl have no intentions of escaping, she would actually have the courage to attack him? Does she no longer wish to live?

Gu Ruoyun quickly reappeared in front of the flaming dragon. She grabbed him in a tight grip, opened her mouth and bit the flaming dragon's spirit.



The agony from being bitten caused the flaming dragon to let out a heart-breaking roar. His body thrashed fiercely as he tried to fling the woman, who was hanging onto him, off from his body.

"Master, have you gone mad?"

Yunyao and the rest cried out anxiously when they saw Gu Ruoyun's actions.

She had risked a lot when she consumed Zixie's source of power but they never thought that she would not even spare a flaming dragon! What if both their energies were to clash? She would most definitely explode and die!

Gu Ruoyun ignored whatever Yunyao and the others were thinking as she opened her mouth once again and sank her teeth into the flaming dragon's spirit.

In everyone's eyes, Gu Ruoyun has obviously gone mad now! However, only Gu Ruoyun herself understood what she was doing. She was not trying to dig her own grave by swallowing the powers of another.

Instead, this was the Divine Weapon, the Ninth Emperor's demand!

She could feel that the Ninth Emperor, which resides within her mind, was hungry and it was guiding her towards swallowing the flaming dragon's spirit. This was why Gu Ruoyun was acting in this manner.


"Roar, roar, roar!"

The flaming dragon trembled in agony as the flames on his body burned brighter and brighter. At that moment, he no longer cared about the physical body that he had been vying for. All he could think of was to burn the woman hanging off his body into ashes!

However, Gu Ruoyun does not seem to feel the scorching heat as she continued to gnaw the flaming dragon's spirit as if she was enjoying a delicious meal.


A hurricane rose from the top of Gu Ruoyun's head, hovering around the entire blazing cave. Gu Ruoyun, who was now feeling very full, quickly crossed her legs and sat down. She then began to digest the power within her body...

"My Lord, according to the soul tracking plate, Gu Ruoyun should be near this little village."

A group of people were standing in mid-air outside Wind Fall Village.

The leader of the group was a middle-aged man with a snobbish and indifferent expression. His eyes were cold and icy. Upon hearing his subordinate's report, a sneer appeared on his face as he ordered, "Move out! No matter where she runs to, she won't escape from the palm of my hand! If it had not been for a sudden issue in the soul tracking plate, we wouldn't have needed an entire month to find this place."


Once he had said his piece, Lin Fen warped and reappeared in the village.

At this time, everyone in the village was experiencing an auspicious and peaceful period. In the absence of the trouble-causing bandits, the men were tilling the farm and the women were weaving. It was peaceful and prosperous. However, the villagers of Wind Fall Village never thought that a group of uninvited guests would also destroy the auspiciousness and peace of the entire village on this very day.

"Little maiden, have you seen the woman in this picture?"

One of the Lin family's cultivators noticed a freckled-faced little maiden who was passing them by. He grabbed her hand immediately as he inquired in an icy voice.

The little maiden clearly jumped in fright from the stranger's actions. Her eyes then moved timidly towards the portrait in the latter's hands. However, when she was stunned when she saw the woman in green in the picture.

This... Isn't this Nian Ye?

The little maiden bit her lips. Previously, Big Brother had taken the wounded Nian Ye in. These people are now searching for her whereabouts. Could it be that these bad people are looking to hurt her?

To the naive little maiden, anyone who wishes to harm Nian Ye was a villain.

The reason behind this was very simple!

In her heart, Nian Ye was a great and kind person. Therefore, the people before her must be bad people. 

"I... I don't know her."

The little maiden replied in a timid voice. Her big, bright eyes filled with confusion as if she had never seen the woman in the painting in her life.

"My Lord, she's lying." The Lin family cultivator who had grabbed the little maiden turned towards Lin Fen, joined his fists and remarked, "The soul tracking plate clearly states that Gu Ruoyun has been here before. This place still contains the aura that she's left behind even though she is no longer around! However, this country bumpkin had the audacity to lie to the Lin family members and withhold information about Gu Ruoyun's presence here. How should we deal with this?"

Lin Fen was silent for a moment before he mildly lifted his head as his features filled with icy lines.

"Spare no one! I want Gu Ruoyun to understand the price she has to pay for having the audacity to escape from the Lin family's clutches!"

That price would start from anyone who has ever had any connections with her!

"As you command!"

The Lin family group joined their fists and replied in unison.

Lin Fen laughed icily before he slowly turned around and walked out of the village.

The sounds of combat and screams that came from behind him did nothing to make him stop. To forces like the Lin family, a bunch of villagers was about as significant as insects.

Useless good-for-nothings like them would bring no consequences even if they were to kill tens of thousands of them!

"Gu Ruoyun, even if you run to the ends of the earth, I, Lin Fen will catch you and make you experience the true meaning of despair!" Lin Fen paused in his steps and stared at the sky not too far away. An eerily cold smile filled his face.

At this moment, Gu Ruoyun, who was still in the middle of her breakthrough in the blazing cave, was unaware of the massacre in the little village! If she had known that the Lin family was not only able to trace her aura and act with such bloody cruelty, perhaps she would have chosen to not leave Wind Fall Village so soon.

Translator's Thoughts


This was... Probably the hardest chapter for me to translate so far. I stopped a few times, refusing to continue, knowing what was about to come next and hoping (albeit a little like a deluded idiot) that maybe, just maybe, if I didn't translate this chapter... The villagers would somehow remain alive. My heart is broken guys. All I can hope for is that our Yun'er finds out about this soon and tear these assholes to pieces. Or maybe I'll find some magical spell that allows me to go into the story and do it myself.
