No one knew what happened except Yang Chen and the Greatest Heaven Sect. However, Ming Guangruo and Mao Qi, a group of fifteen people, now lived in extreme fear.
The life magic weapons had lost contact with their owners, for the time being, it seemed that they had not been refined. This could only explain that the culprits did not know what method to use, they could cut off the relationship between the life source magic weapon and the master’s heart but had not yet the ability to refine it.
If it was refined, then their performance would have been directly like those who had lost their lives, their sea of consciousness would be severely damaged.
They were worried, but there was hope. The other party could cut off their contact with the magic weapon, but they couldn’t refine it. It showed that it may be only because of a strange magic weapon that they could achieve this, and it was not because their cultivation base was formidable. If they could find it in time, then the loss of the ‘Greatest Heaven Sect’ would not be too great.
The situation of other people was the same. This could only show that the other party couldn’t sacrificially refine the Life Source magic weapons of the Yuanying realm ancestors. Their cultivation base must even be limited to the same realm.
Hope was right in front of them, they just had to find the other party. According to the situation that night, the distance of the other party was not far away, and a group of people in the Greatest Heaven Sect remained vigilant in continued surveillance of the area. It was a pity that even after digging three feet under, they still had not found any clues of the perpetrator.
If they have hope, they just must use it. In the Greatest Heaven Sect, everyone concentrated on the area, and the search lasted for almost a month. When everyone had almost lost all their hopes, suddenly something happened.
Originally, they thought that the other party did not have the ability to refine the Life Source magic weapons but elder Ming Guangruo, suddenly started spurting blood, his whole person instantly fainted.
Everyone was shocked by the event and hurriedly stayed as the guardians of elder Ming. After emergency aid, Elder Ming woke up. The first sentence he screamed after waking up was, “my flying sword!”.
The person who knew the inside story understood that the life source magic weapon of elder Ming, had been refined, the spiritual awareness connection between him and the Life Source magic weapon has been forcefully broken.
Under the serious injury of spiritual awareness, the backlash of his body was provoked, resulting in him vomiting blood. However, this kind of injury still couldn’t make him faint, but the reason was the shock his mind received and the resulting intense heartache. The flying sword that had been sacrificially refined by him for thousands of years had been taken away by another person, it had caused his cultivation base to get seriously damaged. It would be strange, if he was not distressed.
The Elder Ming had an accident, and everyone else was even more shocked. It turned out that the other party was not incapable of refining their magic weapons. The magic weapon of the former, a Dacheng realm master, was being refined. That also means that the fourteen pieces of the magic weapon of ‘Mao Qi and the others were equally difficult to escape the fate of being robbed.
Mao Qi and others face colour changed dramatically. Finally, they also felt the taste of being stripped of their own magic weapons. Although it was not their turn, the kind of silent fear had still hit their hearts.
No one would have thought that the current retribution would come so quickly. The fifteen who had forcefully made the seventeen descendants of the Pure Yang Palace to hand over their Life Source magic weapon, would have to spend decades recuperating from it. Within a month, they had tasted the very same disaster. Though yet only one of them, the Dacheng realm master had paid the price.
The people immediately began to doubt, Liang Shaoming blew up the mountain gate of the Pure Yang Palace. After a few decades, the mountain gate of the Greatest Heaven Sect was also destroyed, and it also took tens of thousands of lives. Ming Guangruo and the others wanted the Pure Yang Palace to abolish the magic weapons and cultivation of seventeen of their core disciples. In the blink of an eye, they themselves would suffer the same fate. Could it be that all this was the karma plot of the Pure Yang Palace?
Suspicion was doubtful, but no one really asked the Pure Yang Palace. It was really the strength disparity of Pure Yang Palace with Greatest Heaven Sect, impossible to be compared. Even if the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island was present, they would still bear the burden of letting the disciples follow the requirements of the Greatest Heaven Sect. If the Pure Yang Palace really had the strength to retaliate, they wouldn’t be living in a shack like that.
Cultivation had to be promoted with a happy state of mind. Vexing ideas and understanding could be no good for cultivation. Moreover, with that ability, maybe they already would have been killed by the Greatest Heaven Sect. Could gather the flying swords controlled by their masters of the Dacheng realm? They would be invincible even in battle! What else would make the sect act?
The people of the Greatest Heaven Sect were all going crazy, but Yang Chen was appreciating the sword of Ming Guangruo. Ming Guangruo was an earth attributed cultivator, this flying sword was also of the same earth attribute, moreover Fifth Earth attribute.
The material used turned out to be a very high-grade spine of an Earth Dragon, which was mixed with a touch of rare earth material and then replenished with countless rare materials. After the constant tempering of Ming Guangruo for thousands of years, it was almost the perfect flying sword.
That was to say, only the filthy rich Greatest Heaven Sect could find this kind of living soil. The extraordinary magic weapon was used in the legendary art of water control. This flying sword could never wear, even if slightly damaged, it would always recover slowly, thus, making it powerful and unbeatable.
Such a good thing, Yang Chen could not help but to directly take it with a laugh. Among the Yin Yang Five Elements flying swords, the Fifth Earth flying sword had not yet been refined, and this flying sword was enough to be used in its place.
Xiao Tian digested the unformed tool spirit in the flying sword, and even the spiritual awareness of Elder Ming Guangruo was digested and cleaned. The ability of swallowing the tool spirit had erupted a fearful effect.
If he wanted to use this Fifth Earth flying sword, Yang Chen, of course, could not use it with its original appearance. However, the change of visual appearance was not a big problem for Yang Chen.
Although the current Yin-Yang Heaven Burning Fire was still very low-level, but there were several kinds of fifth grade fire seeds in the profound spirit furnace, taking turns, in a few months, the Fifth Earth flying sword soon changed its appearance. Even if it was put in front of Ming Guangruo’s eyes, if he did not carefully explore it by his spiritual awareness, he would not recognize that this was his own flying sword.
The Fifth Earth flying sword level was already high enough. For the time being, Yang Chen would not be able to continue the sacrificial refining. Therefore, Yang Chen directly collected the Fifth Earth flying sword into his sea of consciousness, buried it deep in the fifth earth layer, just like a Life Source magic sword while being tempered.
During this time, when Yang Chen changed the visual appearance of the Fifth Earth flying sword, the fourteen magic weapons that Mao Qi and others left behind also had their tool spirit and spiritual awareness digested by Xiao Tian.
The fourteen Yuanying realm masters of the Greatest Heaven Sect almost lined up. Every ten days, they had to endure serious blood vomiting and injuries. No exception was made. Under such tremendous pressure, those who were behind were almost desperate, counting their days till they bear the same consequences.
Yang Chen certainly won’t know this, even if he knew, he won’t have any soft feelings. Those masters came to the Pure Yang Palace, forced the Jiedan realm disciples to put out their Life Source magic weapons but did not take heart towards their losses. The taste of having their Life Source magic weapon pulled out must also be experienced by them.
With the Living Soil Fifth Earth flying sword, Yang Chen was already having a good time cultivating. As for the remaining fourteen Life Source magic weapons that had their masters’ will completely erased, Yang Chen had no plans about them, thus, sent them directly to the Palace Master.
Staring at this row of demon-like magic weapons, the eyes of the Palace Master were bright like stars. That day, when Yang Chen said the inexplicable sentence, he disappeared. He did not know what he was busy with in his small courtyard. He did not expect for Tang Chen to give him such a big surprise after half a year.
He was surprised and happy. Surprisingly, Yang Chen did not even let Elder Ming of the Dacheng realm off! this was direct strike against the Greatest Heaven Sect. The good news was that those guys who were arrogant and overbearing had finally tasted the taste of having their own Life Source magic weapons pulled out.
“It was a good magic weapon you just had to change its appearance.”
Yang Chen smiled and said to the Palace Master, “there have been people who have been practicing for us for many years, or they have been tempered by refining their life source magic weapon. If the Palace Master thinks that the disciples have merits, the Palace Master may wish to reward them.”
The face of the Palace Master also restored its calm, he was surprised and elated, but not for too long. This matter, even the Palace Master had knowledge about the news of the Greatest Heaven Sect not returning unscathed. Of course, he couldn’t be too proud.
“Is this your master’s recent handy work?”
The Palace Master turned serious and continued, “it seems that the standard of refining has been greatly improved, but the final step of the appearance has not been completed yet. Take it back to your master, to carefully repair its appearance. After that, hand them over to elder Zheng, to be rewarded according to merits.”
The Palace Master was serious, Yang Chen also stifled his laugh and said earnestly, “I will follow the wishes of the Palace Master!”
He put away the bunch of magic weapons and went straight to his master’s residence.
The meaning of the Palace Master had been very clear, these things, was to the credit of Gao Yue. Anyway, Yang Chen now did not need the sect to contribute such things, the sect resources could be taken out by him at any time. However, Gao Yue was still lacking, but they were still transferred to Gao Yue. They served as a disguised award to Yang Chen.
Yang Chen soon appeared in the courtyard of Gao Yue, and once again saw his Master. After some greetings, a few restrictions were arranged. Yang Chen took out those magic weapons directly and placed them in front of Gao Yue.
“What are these?”
Gao Yue knew that a group of Jiedan realm disciples in the Pure Yang Palace had their Life Source magic weapons pulled out. She also knew that this was for the cover up of Yang Chen’s intervention, but she did not know that the people of the Greatest Heaven Sect had already had an accident.
Yang Chen was able to tell her the consequences of the cause and effect, and Gao Yue suddenly changed her face. She thought that they had no problem just to cover up those materials but didn’t think that Yang Chen was so bold that he directly seized the magic weapon of a master of the Dacheng realm and fourteen Yuanying realm ancestors.
Picking up one by hand, Gao Yue’s spiritual awareness instantly penetrated the magic weapon. Soon Gao Yue found that the quality of this magic weapon was excellent, but there was no such thing as the legacy of its previous master. After checking it again, she was relieved. All magic weapons were clean, she didn’t have to worry for someone following them to find them in their sect.
For the final repair work, Gao Yue certainly knew what it meant. This was for Yang Chen to accomplish but Gao Yue was also added for her benefit. There were still many sect contributions to take, why not?
“How have you been practicing recently? What are your plans?”
Gao Yue accepted the task and received those magic weapons in her Qiankun bag. Then asked about Yang Chen’s cultivation.
This time, Yang Chen went out to set up the formation to injure the people of the Greatest Heaven Sect, but he did not delay any of his cultivation. This time happened to be that Yang Chen had just been promoted to the master of Jiedan realm and was consolidating his cultivation base. He also had not been any difficult fight recently either. It was just steady consolidation, not anything extraordinary.
“Is my Life Source magic weapon among these magic weapons, as you promised?”
Gao Yue was indeed surprised to see these magic weapons, each one was a very good magic weapon. Each was sacrificially refined for not less than hundreds of years, many for thousands of years, the quality was excellent, and she couldn’t help but ask.
“Master there is no need to be in a hurry, wait until the balance of water and fire spirit power is achieved, then consider the matter of the flying sword again.” Yang Chen replied with a smile.
Although these treasures were of good quality, there was still a disparity with the top magic weapons. Ming Guangruo’s was barely able to qualify, but it was earth attributed. Originally, it was suitable for Gong Sunling, but she was a Formations Cultivator and did not like flying swords. Therefore, what Yang Chen promised had not been fulfilled yet.
“Do you want to go out again?”
Gao Yue listened to Yang Chen’s words but soon she seemed to have felt something and was somewhat worried.
Yang Chen did not hide it and nodded.
“Where are you going now?”
Gao Yue asked again. The last time Yang Chen was chased by Luo Yuan and fled all the way, fled for ten years, which made Gao Yue endlessly worried. This time, Yang Chen must leave again. Gao Yue must know where he was going.
“The plain of the Monster Beasts.”
Yang Chen originally wanted to hide it, but later after some thought, revealed it unhesitatingly. Seeing that his master’s face discoloured after hearing the location, Yang Chen hurriedly explained, “am just going to get some things and come back. Master knows that if I want to escape, no one can catch up with me.”
Gao Yue knew about Yang Chen’s shuttle and that with the improvement of Yang Chen’s cultivation base, the speed of the shuttle would only get faster. Even Luo Yuan of the late Dacheng realm couldn’t catch up with Yang Chen in the foundation realm, so Yang Chen of the Jiedan realm was unlikely to have any pursuers catching up.
Thinking of this, Gao Yue was relieved, but it was still a thousand miles, and he must be careful. Listening to master’s advice, Yang Chen just nodded all the way.
This time, the matter of the consciousness clone’s descent to the lower realm and Yang Chen had come to an end. Even if the Greatest Heaven Sect wanted to do the same thing again, it couldn’t be done for at least a hundred years. They couldn’t notify the realms above either to speed up the next arrival.
Because the Greatest Heaven Sect came to his sect, and delayed Yang Chen for half a year, he was growing impatient. Although seemingly the delay was inconsequential.
The fire attributed Jiedan realm spiritual power had been consolidated since almost fifteen years, while other spiritual powers were still at the peak of the foundation realm. If the Yin and Yang Five Elements Secret Art were not able to fully reach the Jiedan realm, it would obviously be affected. The First Wood True Essence could ensure that the First Wood spirit power reached the Jiedan realm and could also improve the Yin and Yang Five Elements Secret Art. Thus, Yang Chen must attain it.
Saying goodbye to his Master, Yang Chen also said goodbye to the Palace Master, and then embarked on the road to the plain of the beasts. 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
