In the Blood Sea, Minghe looked at Kunpeng in the Northern Underworld with a smile. Although he had let go of Kunpeng this time, he had cut off options for Kunpeng to seek refuge with other Sages, Goddess Nvywa especially. It seemed that Goddess Nvywa had intended to kill Kunpeng but hadn't yet since Minghe had interfered. Given the right opportunity, Goddess Nvywa would definitely kill him.
As the Demon Master of the Demon
Tribe, Kunpeng had created the Demon characters just like Cangjie had done for
the Human Tribe, so he enjoyed some Luck from the Demon Tribe. If Kunpeng
resorted to Minghe, some of the Luck would be taken away. Goddess Nvywa, as the
Sage of the Demon Tribe, was not going to let this happen. The most secure way
was to kill Kunpeng and the reason why he was still alive now was that the Luck
hadn't been decreasing as of yet.
But the meeting between
Kunpeng and Minghe was difficult to let go for her. Once she spotted any decrease
in Luck, she would kill Kunpeng immediately and ignore Minghe's deal with him.
The Demon Tribe was declining, and it would never rise again if the Luck was
Actually, Minghe had no
intention of taking Kunpeng in. It was not easy to do so, judging from his
escape during the decisive battle between the Wu and Demon Tribes. Although
Minghe had the power to conquer him, he was afraid that he would escape again
at critical moments.
Despite the fact, Minghe
still had another plan just in case Kunpeng dared to expose the Chaos; he would
kill him in person. Minghe could kill anyone as he wished. Even if the Sages
wanted to protect him.
What Minghe was concerned about was the Chaos. He reached out his hands and a visional map appeared in his hands. It had been drawn based on Kunpeng's trip to the Chaos. The map had recorded everything he'd met in the Chaos.
Looking at this map, Minghe
was yearning. Previously, he had been busy helping the Human Tribe select the
Three Royals and Five Emperors, so he had had to let his Good Separation force
Kunpeng to go to the Chaos. Now that the stuff with the Human Tribe was over
and there were thousands of years before the God Deification Ceremony, he could
tour the Chaos.
Currently, both Minghe and
the Three Separations had actualized the Realm of Origin. The combination of
Minghe's Middle Stage of Origin and the Three Separations' Early Stage of Origin
would terrify all the Sages. Moreover, the Evil Separation, Red Lotus Taoist
was about to make a breakthrough to the Middle Stage of Origin and Minghe's
power would be lifted again then.
Minghe waved his hands, summoning all Three Separations quickly. The Good separation, the Heaven and Earth Taoist, and the Evil Separation, Red Lotus Taoist, were already in the Blood Sea. They arrived in mere seconds. Musen, however, was in the Human Tribe and took some time to get there after receiving the order.
This was the first time
Minghe and the Three Separations had gathered together. Even though the Three
Separations were Minghe's Incarnations, they were different from each other.
The trip to the Chaos was a serious matter. He had to discuss it with them.
Once all Three Separations
were present, Minghe said, "I have forced Kunpeng to tour the Chaos, and
now he is back. Since he has brought back some interesting news, I'm determined
to make a trip to the Chaos. I convene you three to ask for your advice."
The Three Separations fell into silence. Then the Self-centric Separation, Musen, said, "Your Veneration, I have just reached the Realm of Origin, and the Realm is not fully stable yet. I'm afraid I can't go with you. In addition, the Human Tribe needs me, so I'm staying in Untainted Land this time."
Minghe nodded, showing his
agreement. At present, the Human Tribe had become the leading role of Untainted
Land and occupied over half of the Luck. Minghe valued Musen's Luck in the
Human Tribe highly and didn't want anything to go wrong. Over the years, Minghe
and Musen had rapidly improved their cultivations largely due to the luck. With
Musen protecting the Luck of the Human Tribe, Minghe was more relieved.
The Red Lotus Taoist said,
"Your Veneration, right now I have balanced the Principle of Karma and the
Law of Killing, so it's time to move forward. By the time I absorb the Ninth
Grade Golden Lotus of Merit, the Red Lotus of Fire will embrace its Fulfilment
and my cultivation will reach another Breakthrough. Since Your Veneration is
going to the Chaos, I'm staying to guard the Blood Sea and to coordinate with
Minghe thought this
proposal was rational. After all, the Blood Sea was his Stronghold and near to
the Nether World. If there was no one to protect his place, he would be concerned.
By the time the Red Lotus Taoist reached the Middle Stage of Origin, he would
be capable to handle any events even if confronted by the Sages.
The Heaven and Earth Taoist
took out his Book of Life and Death and the Judge Pen. He presented them to the
Red Lotus Taoist, saying, "Since it is so, I'd like to give the Book of
Life and Death and the Judge Pen to my Fellow Taoist. Take care of the Nether
The Book of Life and Death
and the Judge Pen in the Nether World were actually projections of these two
treasures. Only by controlling these two treasures could one manage to control
the Nether World. Since the Red Lotus Taoist was staying in Untainted Land, he
could care for the Nether World with these two treasures and pay special
attention to the guy in Pingxin City.
Minghe looked at the Heaven
and Earth Taoist, laughing. He said, "I know you can't help going with me.
It is a good thing I have you as company. I was meant to bring you. This trip,
after all, is tailored for you.
The Heaven and Earth Taoist
laughed and said, "Your Veneration you do know me. I cultivate the advancement
of worlds. I have managed to advance the World of Heaven and Earth into a small
chiliocosm, but a further evolution requires a long-time accumulation, which is
a slow process. This trip to the Chaos will offer me something."
Minghe nodded again, saying,
"Well, I guess this is it. Please take care of Untainted Land even though
no significant events are likely to happen. Given the opportunity, you two may
commence arranging the God Deification Ceremony."
The Red Lotus Taoist and Musen nodded and then went away, leaving Minghe and the Heaven and Earth Taoist. The Heaven and Earth Taoist said, "Your Veneration since we're going to the Chaos, should we notify Liu Er and Kong Xuan? They have reached Sage-to-be and it's time for them to gain more experience in the Untainted Land. It's not a good thing to stay in the Blood Sea all the time."
Minghe agreed. It seemed
that Liu Er and Kong Xuan had become Sages-to-be in the blink of an eye. The
third disciple, Black Tortoise, hadn't shown up yet. He was like Minghe's
preexistence. Except for when they assisted the Human Sovereign, Liu Er and
Kong Xuan had never left the Blood Sea. It was time for them to go out and
Minghe waved his sleeves,
summoning Liu Er and Kong Xuan who were quite confused. Minghe said, "I
call you two here to inform you that I'm going to the Chaos. The trip may be as
short as several hundred years, or as long as several thousand. During my
absence, the Evil Separation, the Red Lotus Taoist, and the Selfcentric
Separation, Musen will take charge of everything. You two can take advice from
them as well."
Liu Er and Kong Xuan
saluted, saying, "We will obey your orders." Kong Xuan was serene
about this, but Liu Er appeared to be overjoyed. Previously, Liu Er had dared
not to do anything outrageous. He'd been kept on the rails as Minghe was here.
Now that Minghe was going to the Chaos, he could be free. Although the Evil
Separation was here, he was not Minghe in person, after all.
Minghe was unable to do
anything about the cheerful Liu Er, who had retained his naughty character.
Indeed, it had been hard for Liu Er to stay confined for the past years. Minghe
said, "During my absence, you can tour Untainted Land. It's up to you
whether you want to gain enlightenment or recruit disciples."
With that, Liu Er jumped
up, saying gladly, "Your Veneration is truly wise. I have been longing to
tour Untainted Land for a long time." Conversely, Kong Xuan behaved quite
calmly. He was the most mature one among the three disciples.
Minghe continued saying, "Liu Er, although you have achieved the Good Separation and Evil Separation, you can't loosen your cultivation. By the way, you are going to seek the last one of the Four Monkeys of Destruction. The Good Separation and Evil Separation are easy to achieve, not for the obsession. I hope you can enlighten your obsession during this tour to Untainted Land. Otherwise, you will never reach the Origin."
Liu Er nodded with a smile.
It was unknown whether he had taken Minghe's words seriously since his mind was
already wandering to Untainted Land. Ever since he began to cultivate under
Minghe's guidance, he had been secluded from Untainted Land. Now that he had an
opportunity to go out, he would enjoy himself as much as he could. As for
recruiting disciples, that would be up to his mood.
