Chapter 349: Entrusting the Divine Weapon?
Liu Tianyu was not in a rush to answer Xiao Chen. He simply looked over Xiao Chen for a while before he revealed a smile on his aged face. He said pensively, “I have a matter I would like to ask for your help on.”
Xiao Chen smiled faintly and said, “Senior must be joking again. You can draw the Divine Weapon; what could challenge you in this world? How could I, a mere Martial Saint, do what you can’t?”
Xiao Chen rejected Liu Tianyu’s request without hesitation.
Since Xiao Chen no longer owed Liu Tianyu a favor, there was no need for him to risk himself. It was not easy to assist Liu Tianyu.
Liu Tianyu was not surprised by Xiao Chen’s rejection. He simply stared at Xiao Chen without saying a word.
Liu Tianyu’s gaze was calm; there were no other emotions mixed in, neither anger nor rage. He simply watched Xiao Chen silently.
Xiao Chen felt very awkward under that watchful gaze. After a while, he could no longer tolerate it. He said, “Tell me what you need help with first.”
Liu Tianyu smiled, and his eyes narrowed to slits. He said, “I just know that Young Hero Ye is young and promising. You have a heart of gold and willingly to help others. You will pity this old man.”
Xiao Chen interrupted and said, “Please, dear sir, stop placing me on a high pedestal and flattering me. Just speak directly.”
Liu Tianyu waved his hand, and a suction force pulled over the wooden box with the words ‘Like the Emperor Arriving Personally,’ tumbling it through the air continuously.
“I would like to hand his Divine Weapon over to you,” Liu Tianyu said seriously, his smile fading.
Xiao Chen was shocked; his mind was shaken. No matter how strong his heart was, it was hard for him not to feel excited when he heard that Liu Tianyu wanted to pass the Divine Weapon to him.
However, after a moment, Xiao Chen calmed down. When an ordinary person possessed something extraordinary, it would incite the envy of others. Without sufficient strength, taking the Divine Weapon was just seeking death.
Furthermore, Liu Tianyu would not hand the Divine Weapon over to him without reason. This was the treasure of the Heavenly Saber Pavilion. How could he hand it to someone else so easily?
“Help me pass it to someone. When he sees the Divine Weapon, he will understand,” Indeed, Liu Tianyun quickly followed up with this statement.
Xiao Chen smiled bitterly and said, “Senior, can you explain it all in one go. Are you not worried that I would get greedy and keep the Divine Weapon for myself after you hand it over?”
Liu Tianyun said indifferently, “Even if you wanted to use it, you can’t draw it. To you, it is merely a piece of trash.”
Amidst the strong winds, Xiao Chen closed his eyes and pondered. He only opened his eyes after a long pause. He said, “I’m sorry; I really can’t do this. There are so many experts in the Heavenly Saber Pavilion. Why did senior pick me over one of them?”
The events from three days ago were still fresh in Xiao Chen’s mind. However, the lure of the Divine Weapon was too great.
The opponent did not care much for the Heavenly Saber Pavilion and had killed their way in. Xiao Chen was merely an insignificant Martial Saint. How could he have the power to protect the Divine Weapon? Not to mention a peak Martial Monarch, even a Superior Grade Martial King would defeat him easily.
Liu Tianyu spoke with a hint of dismay in his tone, “Who in the Heavenly Saber Pavilion would allow me to hand the Divine Weapon to another. There are internal troubles and outside aggression; these are stormy times. This is the most dangerous moment for our sect. This is also the final wish of this old man. I hope little brother will not reject me.”
Xiao Chen said in confusion, “Leng Liusu advanced to peak Inferior Grade Martial King at the age of 17. The Three Holy Lands will send people to the Heavenly Saber Pavilion. With a Holy Land supporting us, who would dare act against the Heavenly Saber Pavilion?”
Liu Tianyu shook his head and said, “If this old man could move about freely, I would do my best to stop this from happening. Interacting with the Three Holy Lands has never resulted in a good ending.”
Xiao Chen shook his head and said, “The Three Holy Lands are separate from the mundane world. They hold absolute power and are not under the control of a nation. Their reach stretches far and wide. With them supporting us, there are only benefits and no detriment.”
Liu Tianyu smiled coldly and said, “How ignorant. How many big powers do you know on this continent aside from the Three Holy Lands? Who truly control the world?
“Exactly, how big is this world? Do you think you can imagine how treacherous the games that the peak powers play with each other are? The world operates on benefits and interest. If they cannot obtain something, they will not allow others obtain it. There has never been any true savior in the world.”
As for how big the world was, what were the great powers in the continent, and who was the true ruler of the world, Xiao Chen did not know.
Liu Tianyu’s rhetorical questions left Xiao Chen speechless; he could not think of anything to say.
“Cough…cough…!” After Liu Tianyu spoke, his expression suddenly turned ugly. He could not stop coughing, and strange black lines appeared on his face; he looked like he was in pain.
This greatly astonished Xiao Chen. He rushed forward and said, “Senior, what’s wrong with you?”
“Don’t come near!” Liu Tianyu bellowed with a fierce expression. He emitted a horrifying aura of death.
Xiao Chen’s face sank. He placed his right hand on the saber hilt and quickly retreated backward, landing right at the cliff edge.
The aura of death penetrated the depths of the heart. Xiao Chen had never seen such a pure aura of death before. It made one feel fear from the bottom of his heart as if death lurked around the corner.
Countless black tentacles appeared from nowhere and tangled around Liu Tianyu’s body. His expression twisted as he endured bitterly.
After a long time, the black tentacles slowly retracted. Liu Tianyu’s expression calmed once again. However, his face seemed to have aged like he had grown ten years older.
Liu Tianyu shook his head and smiled bitterly, “I originally thought I could endure for another one or two days. I did not expect this to happen so soon. Little friend, this is the last thing this old man asks of you. Please pass the Divine Weapon to that person.”
Liu Tianyu flung his hand and tossed the wooden box containing the Divine Weapon to Xiao Chen. Xiao Chen could not dodge and could only stretch his hands out to receive it.
The wooden box sank down slightly while in his hand; it was clear it had a substantial weight to it. Xiao Chen set the wooden box down at his feet and asked, “What just happened?”
Liu Tianyu waved it off and said, “Just a high ranked Demon that has possessed my body for twenty years. You don’t have to bother about that.
“Unless you have the bloodline of the Saber Emperor, you cannot use the true strength of the Divine Weapon. It is even impossible even to draw the saber completely. When the previous Pavilion Master handed it to me, he left a Holy Seal on it. I will pass it to you today. When there is a need, you can draw this Divine Weapon.”
Liu Tianyu stretched a finger out, and a resplendent Holy Seal appeared at its tip. Then, it flew into Xiao Chen’s sea of consciousness with a ‘sou’ sound.
Xiao Chen’s heart trembled. He sensed the resplendent Holy Seal within his sea of consciousness. When he examined it carefully, he realized it was a drop of golden blood.
It looks like he has tossed this hot potato to me, Xiao Chen sighed as he thought.
“Where is this person? How do I find him? What is his name?” Xiao Chen asked.
Liu Tianyu replied, “He is the brother of the previous Pavilion Master. His name is Leng Tianhe. He left the Heavenly Saber Pavilion several decades ago. Even I do not know where he is.”
Xiao Chen wanted to curse, He doesn't even know where this person is; how am I going to find him?
Liu Tianyu smiled and said, “I believe you will find him. Go quickly. After using the Divine Weapon, I have exhausted too much of my strength. I can no longer suppress him. I am going to seal myself in ice now.”
A strong force pushed Xiao Chen off without giving him time to ask any more questions. Frost slowly covered Liu Tianyu’s body. The cold Qi slowly spread, and soon, he turned into an ice sculpture.
The cold Qi continued to spread and quickly and completely covered the summit. In the next moment, ice sealed the entire summit along with Liu Tianyu.
Xiao Chen carried the wooden box as he descended quickly. Strong winds blew from both sides. When he looked at the summit covered in frost, he felt a complicated feeling in his heart.
Xiao Chen placed the wooden box in the Universe Ring. Then, he quickly headed for his courtyard. Liu Ruyue was not asleep yet and stood quietly in the yard.
Xiao Chen hesitated for a while before telling her about what happened on the summit, giving Liu Ruyue every single detail.
Unexpectedly, after Liu Ruyue heard it, her expression did not change; she was not surprised.
Liu Ruyue smiled bitterly and explained, “My father told me when he handed Qingyun Peak over to me. The high ranked Demon was a Demon second to the Blood Demon General. The spirit of the Demon has possessed him for almost twenty years.
“Actually, he has always been in pain. He just was not willing to tell me. Maybe sealing himself in ice is the best thing for him.”
Liu Ruyue paused for a while before continuing, “You don’t have to worry too much about the matter of the Divine Weapon. Just leave it in the wooden box; no one can sense it.”
Xiao Chen smiled gently and said, “That’s all I can do. There are so many people in the world. It is simply too difficult to find one particular person among them all. You should go to sleep early. If there is a way to rescue your father in the future, I will do all I can.”
Liu Ruyue nodded and said, “I thank you in advance. You should go to sleep early too; don’t pressure yourself too much.”
Early in the morning, Xiao Chen continued to train as he did before. He did not put too much pressure on himself over the matter of the Divine weapon.
However, he was in no rush to cultivate the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation. Instead, he focused completely on the Dragon and Tiger Body Sculpting Art. Since he ran into obstructions with his cultivation of the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation, he would focus on the Dragon and Tiger Body Sculpting Art instead.
Xiao Chen sat cross-legged below a gushing waterfall in the back mountains. He used the more severe method to cultivate the final layer of the Dragon and Tiger Body Sculpting Art.
Cultivating a Body Tempering Technique was more arduous and difficult than a Cultivation Technique. Aside from having to endure endless loneliness, the body had to be placed under enormous stress at every moment.
In the blink of an eye, seven days had passed. The Heavenly Saber Pavilion used a large amount of manpower to completely restore all the decimated buildings within the past seven days. It had restored its past glory.
At the same time, they released a piece of shocking news: The Young Pavilion Master, Leng Liusu, became a peak Inferior Grade Martial King at the age of seventeen.
Phoenix’s Passion Palace, one of the Three Holy Lands, would send the experts of their sect to the Heavenly Saber Pavilion at the start of the next month. They would help the Heavenly Saber Pavilion completely seal the spatial crack.
The Heavenly Saber Pavilion would organize a huge welcoming banquet on the Heaven Ascending Platform. At the same time, they sent out invitations to all the major sects and clans to participate.
One of the legendary Three Holy Lands would actually travel to the Heavenly Saber Pavilion. Furthermore, the Heavenly Saber Pavilion had a genius that became a peak Inferior Grade Martial King at the age of seventeen.
In an instant, all the negative rumors surrounding the Heavenly Saber Pavilion vanished. The sects who had a relationship with the Heavenly Saber Pavilion and had restless thoughts immediately sent someone to bestow gifts and to show their loyalty.
Many of the leaders of major powers personally came and brought gifts of great value. They hoped ally with the Heavenly Saber Pavilion. If they could rely on the Heavenly Saber Pavilion as their backer, their statuses would rise.
