“Boom!” The tablet fell on Mount Banda and caused the entire mountain to quake. A large rift in the shape of a dragon appeared from the top and spread towards the base.
The monstrous impact created a chasm in the middle of the mountain.
Sand started to fly up from the ancient altar as the big boulders inserted themselves into the pits on the tablet.
With the start of this operation, sounds of grinding could be heard from a thousand miles away.
“Buzz!” The top of the mountain issued a blinding brilliance like a divine lamp that shone on the entire area.
After channeling for two hours on top of the mountain, the tablet that was connected to the altar started to fly towards the south again as if it was being led by some power.
It was heading for an auspicious ground in Trinity, the ancient tomb of a Heaven’s Emergence expert.
Several top experts were watching from far away and saw the altar-tablet combo fly into the icy palace where they both sank back into the tomb.
This scene scared all the treasure masters and cultivators who were excavating the tomb. They began to dig even more since they felt an incredible mystery was about to come out.
Of course, this was something happening several thousand miles away.
The sacred lake had dried up with fire spewing out of the cracks. The two peaks nearby had collapsed into rubble while the surrounding trees were incinerated. This was a scene of destruction.
Feng Feiyun flew out from inside while still feeling scared. He stared at the southern sky and wondered where the tablet was flying to.
“Whoosh!” He took out the black iron order and saw light flowing through it. Humanoid shadows the size of a finger emerged.
It looked like this order had been stimulated by the tablet as well. In other words, the tablet had given it power. It was not the same as before.
How were these shadows carved on this iron order? He recognized several of them, such as Long Jiangling and Princess Luofu. There were Zi Wu and Fo Canzi as well. They were the wise sages on the tablet.
Didn’t they leave a part of their soul on the tablet? Why were they here on this order as well?
He suddenly had a bold conjecture: ‘Could this tiny order be the real sacred tablet while the mountain and the altar are only meant to be the transportation that takes it to the portals?’
“No way.” He found it unbelievable, but if this was true, what kind of treasure was he holding? What were its uses?
“Uncle, you’re still alive! Haha, I knew you wouldn’t die to that ugly woman.” A burly man with a full beard and a gigantic sky piercer came to greet him with a wide smile.
It was Wang Meng!
Feiyun put away the iron order; he’ll take his time studying it later. He then smiled and replied: “What ugly woman are you talking about?”
“That bitch, Princess Luofu. You clearly defeated Nalan Hongtao to become the number one genius of the Jin Dynasty, but in the end, she was the one who left her name on the tablet. That really pisses me off. If it wasn’t for the fact that I can’t beat her, I would have captured her and tied her to a tree so that you could take your time dealing with her…” Wang Meng was furious.
“Cough, cough!” Feiyun awkwardly coughed and replied: “She’s the princess, you need to mind your words. Your head will fall if someone were to hear this.”
Wang Meng was originally a bandit so his mouth was naturally foul. Not to mention Princess Luofu, he would even dare to say “fuck their mother” to the four divine consorts.
“Uncle, your attitude is too positive. That bitch stole your chance. If it was me, I would be killing my way to the capital so that I can pull her out of her palace, give her two slaps, throw her on a bed, and do her until she cries for her mommy and daddy. She won’t even be able to walk afterward, so she can stop acting all mighty. It’s so infuriating watching her.” Wang Meng felt sad for Feiyun and gritted his teeth in rage.
“It’s no big deal, really!” Feiyun was still smiling. The world might be mocking him for making someone else’s wedding dress and having lost the chance to leave his name.
However, he and the princess were the only ones that knew the real situation of the tablet. It wasn’t a nice thing at all.
Feiyun asked: “Where did Su Yun and Miss Ji go?”
“They left on their carriage, I don’t know where they went though.” Wang Meng revealed an earnest smile.
Feiyun paused for a bit before asked: “What about Hongyan?”
Wang Meng’s smile disappeared as he seriously answered: “Uncle, Miss Nangong really feels something for you. She fought against three half-step Giants, and in order to not let them disturb you, she was wounded in the process and fell down from the sky with her white robe stained red with blood…”
Feiyun grabbed Wang Meng’s shirt and almost lifted him up as he uttered: “How is she now?”
“She had the Cloth of Invisibility so not to mention three half-steps, even a Giant would die in her hands. However, she was on the defensive the whole time against all three since the slightest blow from them would render you to ashes…”
Feiyun emphasized: “What are you blabbering about?! I’m asking how is she right now!”
Wang Meng innocently spoke: “At that time… well, all right, she was injured but still managed to escape while leading the three half-steps away. I don’t know how she is right now though.”
Feiyun let go of him and began to think.
Suddenly, a scorching fireball with a twenty-meter-wide boulder in the middle came from the distance. Wang Meng and Feiyun quickly jumped to the side.
“Boom!” The place where they were standing was now a huge fiery pit.
“Whoosh! Whoosh!” With noises of wind splitting, two disciples in black from the Senluo Temple had made their way here. They looked around the age of twenty with beast souls floating around them. The murderous intent on their bodies burned the ground black.
Both were heaven-defying geniuses at first-level Heaven’s Mandate, so they were quite formidable.
One of them sneered: “Demon’s son, you’re quite lucky, even Princess Luofu couldn’t kill you.”
“Feng Feiyun, what a tragedy. You were robbed the chance of leaving your name on the tablet. We’ll send you off today.” The other one revealed a devious grin. He used his technique again to condense a large fireball. It was still twenty meters wide like a burning cauldron.
Feiyun smirked with disdain: “Even if I didn’t leave my name on the tablet, the two of you can’t kill me.”
“Boom!” He took out his Infinite Spirit Ring and activated its power. The attack directly killed one of the disciples. Even his fireball was divided into several pieces before falling down and burning him until nothing was left.
Just one move erased a first-level Heaven’s Mandate.
The other genius thought that since he was one realm higher than Feiyun, there was no reason to be afraid of him. Alas, this was no longer the case!
Feiyun’s glance made this genius step back from fear. He anxiously said: “Feng… Feng Feiyun, there are more than ten previous generation experts here from our temple. They will come right away with our Vice Hall Master who is a Giant. You won’t be able to escape!”
He felt suffocated by Feiyun’s aura and eventually turned to flee.
“You think you can run?” Feiyun lifted his stone saber and his body turned into a ray. He moved so fast that even his shadow couldn’t be seen. He instantly appeared in front of the genius and unleashed a white dragon slash. The genius didn’t even have the power to resist. His body was split into halves with his innards gushing out everywhere.
Wang Meng stared at Feiyun with awe. Killing someone one realm higher so easily — this was too badass. He slightly trembled and asked: “Uncle, what do we do now?”
Feiyun looked up and noticed a torrential wave of murderous energy coming their way. Who knows how many experts wanted his life?
Despite not leaving his name on the tablet, he had actually beaten Nalan Hongtao at the same level, so he was still considered the number one genius with boundless potential and a limitless future.
Those who had a feud with him didn’t want to see him grow. They had to obliterate him while he was still in his cradle.
“I’m sure the ancient path out of Trinity has many people waiting in ambush. If we return to the pagoda now, we’ll be walking to our deaths.” There was a tinge of worry in his eyes.
Wang Meng countered: “But the experts from the temple are here, including those of the Giant level. Those divine intents are too strong. It looks like there are some seers as well. Staying at Trinity will be a dead end too. Uncle, how about we make our way out before these experts get here? Maybe we’ll be able to make it out.”
Feiyun shook his head: “Let’s go to Radiance.”
Wang Meng was confused: “Why Radiance? There are even more cultivators there, and they also want your head.”
“You’ll find out when we get there. Radiance is our only way out. This time, I will make those who want to kill me face the consequences.” A cheerful glint flashed in his eyes.
