Chapter 402: The Surviving Evil of the Shen Musicians
    Jun Shang’s destined woman is Miss Jun, so did she cause this Vision to appear?
    Originally, this should be a matter that deserves a celebration.
    The Moon Root that is compatible with Jun Shang’s blood has finally appeared.
    But the problem is Miss Jun’s identity, a Shen Musician… if this catches the others’ attention, if her identity as the Shen Musician is exposed, then the consequences are simply too horrible to contemplate.
    While everyone in the Polar Domain is excited-
    The space in front of them suddenly fluctuates with a burst of light and shadow.
    Immediately after, the projection of several women appear there, vivid and lifelike.
    There’s a woman who is fully-clad in white, her face covered with a white gauze. The entire person is tall and slender, her temperament ethereal and noble.
    Undoubtedly, it’s only her projected image, yet it gives an incomparable sense of oppression.
    Behind her is a young woman with exceptionally elegant and exquisite features.
    Indeed, she’s the one who had previously visited the Polar Domain – Leng Qingwan.
    Seeing that woman in white, the expression of everyone from the Polar Domain changes. Among them, there are relatively younger ones who promptly bow to give their salutations.
    “Greetings to the Sect Master of Tian Yi Men. For the Sect Master’s projected form to arrive, is something the matter?”
    The Master of Tian Yi Men still has a youthful and soft appearance, like a young lady.
    In reality, she has already lived for thousands of years.
    Right now, half of the people standing at the peak of Polar Domain are younger than her.
    The white-clothed woman’s gaze slowly sweeps through everyone on the scene, and it’s only after a long while does she open her mouth to speak: “Everyone, there is a matter that must be discussed with you all. During the emergence of the Nine Luminaries and the Moon earlier, the Spirit Clock on the sealed Shen Musician’s graveyard rang without wind, didn’t it? Does everyone know what this means?”
    Hearing the Sect Master’s words, there are several people from the Polar Domain who has their pupils suddenly contract. For a split second, they couldn’t mask the fear and alarm on their faces.
    Still, there are others who are at a loss, with confusion on their faces.
    Elder Chang secretly trades glances with the others, his face showing concern.
    They only listen to the white-clothed woman continue: “A thousand years ago, the last surviving evil of the Shen Musicians, Baili Yinlou was fighting back even at death’s door. And she has left behind the most malicious curse.”
    “The Shen Musicians’ seed of fire has already been sown in the Three Realms. There will come a day when that single spark would be able to start a prairie fire, burning the Three Realms until nothing remains. On that day, the people who have taken part in that past Battle, not one would be able to slip away. Their bodies will perish, and their souls will vanish – consigned to eternal damnation.”
    The woman’s voice is cool and serene, but it ruthlessly pounds against everyone’s ears.
    Several people of the Polar Domain have increasingly paler complexions. There is terror in their eyes, there is restlessness, until it all ultimately turns into fierceness.
    The Sect Master of Tian Yi Men sighs softly and says: “Back then, we annihilated the Shen Musicians. It was absolutely without even the slightest bit of selfishness, as it was all in order the rid the Three Realms of its evil. Today, for the peace and stability of the Three Realms, we will absolutely not allow the embers of the Shen Musicians to survive.”
    “That’s right!” someone immediately responds, “The Shen Musicians break the balance of the Three Realms, evil fiends that draw disaster, they simply shouldn’t exist in the world. We must destroy them for all the people living in the realm.”
    “A surviving member of the Shen Musicians is the descendant of demons, how can we allow it to live!”
    Leng Qingwan unhurriedly steps forward and says: “Everyone, have you thought about why the Ghost Clock of the Sealed Shen Musician graveyard would ring without wind, at the same time as the appearance of the Nine Luminaries and the Moon?”
    “A–! Could it be… could it be that the person who possesses the Moon Spiritual Root is… is a surviving member of the Shen Musicians?”
    “How is that possible?! The Moon Spiritual Root is the only one who could match our Jun Shang’s blood!”
    In a short while, the people of the Polar Domain descends into a commotion.

Chapter 401: That woman and the Immortal Child, they are still alive
    Even though Jian Feng didn’t come near the fetus with the Immortal Soul, he obtained a sample of its mother’s blood.
    The power contained in that blood excited Jian Feng so much, he almost forgot himself and jumped up and down.
    That’s because the power within that blood isn’t just pure and powerful, it even transcends the limits of this world.
    If Gong Qianxue could take this kind of power, would she still have to worry about failing to ascend?
    They just didn’t expect that they would lose all traces of that pregnant woman and her unborn child, their life and death uncertain.
    Hearing Jian Feng’s words, Gong Qianxue’s beautiful face distorts for a split second.
    Not being able to obtain that Immortal fetus, it’s a sore spot in her life.
    At that time, she thought that the woman was only a weak girl who hasn’t even reached the Primary Stage of cultivation.
    And making that woman’s relatives dig up the child from her belly would be an easy matter.
    Who would have imagined that complications would arise, making her lose the best chance to advance – all for nothing.
    Gong Qianxue takes a deep breath, and she represses all the unwillingness and bitterness in her heart.
    “Senior brother, why would you mention this all of a sudden?”
    Jian Feng: “The power of this Nine Luminaries and the Moon – I feel like it’s exactly the same as the power from the blood sample that you brought back at that time. If I didn’t guess it wrong, perhaps the person who caused this Heavenly Vision has some relationship with that unborn Immortal and its mother!”
    “Ah–!!” Gong Qianxue gasps in a mouthful of cold air.
    Her eyes suddenly go round, “Brother, you… you mean to say that, that woman and the Immortal child, they are still alive?”
    “It’s highly probable!” Jian Feng’s eyes flicker with a fiery light, “Even if it isn’t the case, junior sister, as long as we find the source of that power, you would have a ninety percent chance to pass through the Lightning Tribulations, and fly up to the Xiuzhen Continent. When that moment comes, you and I can…”
    Jian Feng speaks with adoration, but Gong Qianxue doesn’t hear even a word of it.
    In her mind, she’s only thinking about about that Unborn Immortal still being alive.
    If she could find that Immortal child and it’s mother… no, she must find that Immortal child, and refine it into a puppet!
    Because that Immortal child should belong to her!
    For Gong Qianxue, it would serve as a stepping stone for her advancement!
    ……
    Compared to the Vision that the Yanwu Continent could see, the Xiuzhen Continent and the Xiuxian Continent don’t get to the point where night has become as bright as day.
    However, there are some people in these two realms that are more shocked about it, compared to those in the Yanwu Continent.
    That’s because the people of the Yanwu Continent doesn’t know what it signifies, but many from the two Continents know.
    Most especially the Xiuxian Continent, situated as the highest of the Three Realms.
    In the night sky above, the view of the Nine Luminaries and the Moon is faintly discernible.
    Bright moonlight spills over the earth, and it’s as if the entire world is completely covered by a layer of silver frost.
    This is the world where a magical energy permeates. But at this moment, it has been made even more obscure by a mysterious veil.
    It gives people an illusion that they’re in a wonderland.
    But on Xiuxuan Continent, almost everyone has deathly pale complexions.
    At the mountain peak of Polar Domain.
    Everyone is entranced as they look at the bright moon from the distant horizon.
    “The Nine Luminaries of the Moon, Rivalry Between the Moon and Stars – doesn’t this mean that the only one who can match Jun Shang, the one with the Moon Spiritual Root has emerged?”
    There’s someone who couldn’t help but excitedly yell out, “Elder Chang, hurry! Hurry and make a divination, see who has the Moon Spiritual Root, and where they’re located. We must find that person and bring them back!”
    The Elder Chang who has been called has a very calm expression, there’s not even the smallest bit of change in his complexion, “It’s just the appearance of a Heavenly Vision, it doesn’t necessarily mean that a Moon Spiritual Root has emerged. There’s no need to be so anxious, is there?”
    Elder Chang has a dismissive expression, but he exchanges meaningful glances at Di Ming Jue’s other trusted aides beside him. Nevertheless, there’s worry in his heart that he couldn’t conceal.

Chapter 400: That immortal soul from back then
 
    A person’s figure flies out of the cave mouth that had been blasted open, falling in front of everyone.
 
    The Heavenly Road Sect people are surprised at first, then they get a clear look at the appearance of the person who has just arrived. They immediately reveal expressions of fear and reverence.
 
    “Greetings to the Great Ancestor!” they all go down on their knees.
 
     One of them couldn’t help but ask: “Great Ancestor, didn’t you say you’re going to have a Closed Door Death Cultivation*? Why have you suddenly emerged?”
 
  • when you’re too old that you’re probably gonna die in a Closed Door Cultivation – training and burial place in one.
 
    The speaker is the current Head of the Heavenly Road Sect.
 
    In the Yanwu Continent, one can say that he’s a person of towering power, a stomp of his feet could cause three great tremors on the earth.
 
    But he is reverent and deferential as he facing this man with white hair and beard, to the old man with middle-aged features. The Head doesn’t dare to show the least bit of disrespect.
 
    The old man doesn’t pay them any attention. Instead, he raises his head to look at the nine stars and the moon in the night sky.
 
    A pair of somewhat abstruse and cloudy eyes begin to redden a little. They burn with an avaricious and excited desire.
 
    Even the originally steady breathing also turn rough and heavy because of excitement.
 
    “This power… this kind of power could help me break through the shackles!!”
 
    “I don’t know what power this is, but so long as I use it, it would certainly let me pass through the thunder tribulations and ascend to the world of Xiuzhen… hahaha, the heavens have truly not forsaken me! The heavens have not forsaken me!”
 
    The old man mutters to himself. His voice is so low, anyone listening couldn’t hear it clearly.
 
    But his chaotic breathing and excited tone of voice have aroused the curiosity of everyone from the Heavenly Road Sect.
 
    Just what is so strange about this Heavenly Vision that the Great Ancestor, who had never shown anger or happiness on his face, would be stirred up so much?
 
    “I hereby order everyone in the Heavenly Road Sect!”
 
    They all immediately bow their heads to accept, “Please say your order, Great Ancestor. From top to bottom, the Heavenly Road Sect wouldn’t dare refuse!”
 
    “Effective immediately, you must find the source that caused this vision, do it at any cost!”
 
    “Be it a person, a beast, or an object – this special treasure must absolutely fall into the grasp of my Heavenly Road Sect!”
 
    Everyone stares blankly at first, then they promptly respond: “As you bid, Great Ancestor!”
 
    “Based on the direction where this Vision has risen from, it seems to be at the border between the countries of Huang Yao and Chi Yan. We shall scatter our manpower at once, and scout ahead!”
 
    ……
 
    Jing Cheng Country, Imperial Palace.
 
    “What… what is this?”
 
    Gong Qianxue hasn’t even put on her clothes properly, as she hurriedly runs out of the palace to watch the moon and the stars growing bigger and brighter in the sky. She lets out a cry of surprise.
 
    A person’s breath quickly approaches her side.
 
    Gong Qianxue knows that it is naturally her senior brother, Jian Feng.
 
    Yanwu Continent’s best alchemist, the genius and treasure of the Heavenly Road Sect.
 
    “Senior brother, what is this?”
 
    Gong Qianxue is aware that Jian Feng’s background is very mysterious. He is far more knowledgeable than the people of the Yanwu Continent.
 
    Jian Feng’s status in the Heavenly Road Sect is even higher than that of the Head.
 
    But so what if he’s mysterious and powerful?
 
    For her, he’s just a loyal dog that has been befuddled by her charm.
 
    Sensing Jian Feng casting an adoring gaze over to her, the feeling of pride and complacency flits across Gong Qianxue’s mind.
 
    But her face shows an expression of adoration and complete trust.
 
    As soon as Jian Feng sees the Vision, his eyes fill up with astonishment.
 
    Hearing Gong Qianxue’s question, he slightly knits his brows, “The Nine Luminaries and the Moon. I have only ever heard of such a Vision, but I haven’t seen it before. However, I can feel that this power is very formidable, and also very special…”
 
    Jian Feng slowly turns his head to look at Gong Qianxue, his eyes are brimming with passion and enthusiasm, “Junior sister, do you still remember that fetus with an immortal soul, the one that you wanted to obtain back then?”
 
    At that time, Gong Qianxue unexpectedly said that she had found a fetus with an immortal soul, and she asked him to help her refine it.

Chapter 399: Like a Goddess that Descended to Earth
 
    She… cannot die!
 
    No matter how much it hurts, she must still grit her teeth and bear with it.
 
    Under the guidance of Muyan’s consciousness, the chaos in her meridians slowly come together in a bundle, then it flows through her body.
 
    Lou Beiyu and Bai Yichen, who are frightened and at a loss of what to do, they discover in astonishment-
 
    The surface Muyan’s skin, which has been unceasingly oozing with blood, it begins to glow with brilliant rays of light.
 
    The blood that’s covering Muyan’s clothes, even the stains that have seeped into the fabric, they all slowly fade away under this radiance.
 
    It seems like they’re being absorbed into Muyan’s body.
 
    “Bai-brother, you… look, Master’s meridians!”
 
    The two look down to see Muyan’s meridians that are exposed to the outside. To their surprise, the meridians slowly begin to change color.
 
    Red, orange, yellow, green, blue-green, blue, purple, grey, brown… nine colors continuously shift and alternate.
 
    The meridians that have begun to be visible all over, they still appear malevolent, but their colors slowly turn transparent.
 
    Soon after, they completely turn into a white glow.
 
    Bai Yichen subconsciously goes to take a glance outside the window, which he had overlooked earlier.
 
    Indeed, it’s glowing white – white like the moonlight outside the window.
 
    The moon in the sky has only become bigger and brighter. The vivid moonlight spills down, illuminating the space between heaven and earth like it’s daytime.
 
    The people in the entire Jin Wangfu have also come out because this strange event.
 
    As the moonlight turns brighter, the nine resplendent stars surround the moon.
 
    The glowing white meridians that have floated to the surface of Muyan’s skin slowly fade away.
 
    But the rays of light on her body grow brighter and brighter.
 
    Even if it’s already as bright as day outside, the illumination inside the room is still extraordinary.
 
    Both Bai Yichen and Lou Beiyu are showing worried expressions.
 
    This way, Jin Wangye would surely find the peculiarities…
 
    Just as they’re thinking about this, the door is suddenly pushed open.
 
    Jin Wangye and his trusted aide rush in with large strides.
 
    Seeing the situation inside the room, Jin Wangye has his mouth and eyes wide open in shock.
 
    Bai Yichen and Lou Beiyu are too close, so they couldn’t see it clearly.
 
    But Jin Wangye, who is standing at the doorway, he could clearly and sharply see that there’s an encompassing halo behind Muyan.
 
    Glowing white, dazzling, pure, and holy.
 
    Like that bright moon in the sky.
 
    Two moons have emerged in the world. One is high up in the sky, surrounded by nine stars.
 
    And the other is behind Muyan, brilliantly spinning – and it’s as if a Goddess has descended to earth.
 
    This… what does this mean?!
 
    Jin Wangye stares and stares, his breathing slowly gets rougher and heavier. A greedy and possessive light bursts forth in his eyes.
 
    ===
 
    It is at this very moment that the whole Yanwu Continent, perhaps even everyone in the Three Realms, have their sky and earth turn upside down – all because of this vision that has emerged.
 
    ….
 
    Huang Yao Country, Heavenly Road Sect.
 
    In the middle of the night, at the highest peak of Lingyun Mountains, where it should originally be completely quiet, desolate and uninhabited.
 
    Now however, almost all the central figures of Heavenly Road Sect are standing up there.
 
    They are watching the vision in the night sky with astonishment.
 
    “Why would heaven and earth give birth to such a vision?”
 
    “If something abnormal has occurred, there must be a demon. Could it be that in the near future, this world will lose its peace and security?”
 
    As he’s speaking, the nine stars that’s surrounding the moon begin to move at an extremely slow speed.
 
    Faint rays of light come out of the nine stars, coming together with the silver moon above.
 
    The Nine Luminaries and the Moon.
 
    The dark night is as bright as day!
 
    All of a sudden, everyone on the Lingyun peak feel the Internal Force within them begin to stir.
 
    It’s like they want to greedily devour something, and yet they want to serve it as well.
 
    Every inch of their meridians feel like they’re being washed, and it’s like they’re burning.
 
    Just as everyone is bewildered, there’s a sudden sound of explosion on Lingyun peak.
 
    The mountain rock shatters.

Chapter 398: Niangqin is in danger
 
    Practically the first thing that Han Ye and Ying Mei could think of is this very same idea. Soon after, they’ve become very certain of it.
 
    “Ngh…” All of a sudden, Xiao Bao puts a hand over his chest, and lets out a muffled groan. His little face is scrunched up in both pain and alarm.
 
    “What’s wrong?” Di Ming Jue immediately looks down.
 
    Xiao Bao gasps in a mouthful of air, saying: “Niangqin… niangqin… I think niangqin is in danger, we should hurry!”
 
    In extreme worry, there’s a change in his voice. It has a faint tremble.
 
    Hearing that, Di Ming Jue, Han Ye, and Ying Mei all have their complexions transform.
 
    “This is bad. Spiritual Root reconstruction takes at least twelve hours. During this time, it can be said that Miss Jun wouldn’t have any power to defend herself!”
 
    Han Ye still hasn’t finished saying his words,
 
    He sees light and shadow flashing before his eyes, and the figures of Di Ming Jue and Xiao Bao have already disappeared.
 
    Han Ye and Ying Mei glance at each other, and quickly try to catch up.
 
    As for Zhu Hai, who is neither man nor ghost – together with those black-clothed men – they have all of their bones broken, and are thrown into a disorganized burial mound.
 
    They believe that these people, who are more miserable and hideous than ghosts, would definitely be able to get along with the corpses of a mass grave.
 
    Although Shen Jinglin, Yan Haotian and the others are also worried about Muyan, they themselves know that it would only be a hindrance if they were to go.
 
    They can only stay in Tianyuan City and wait for news.
 
    ===
 
    Right now, Muyan finds herself in an extremely mysterious state.
 
    When the enormous force of the Tian Mo Qin had rushed into her body just a moment ago, she only felt pain that tore through her heart and broke open her lungs.
 
    That kind of pain was even worse than when the Tian Mo Qin was recognizing her as its Master.
 
    But as the energy slowly and completely converges in her Dantian, wisps and strands of it rush into her meridians.
 
    The pain in her entire body is still there.
 
    But her body has a kind of a clearer sense.
 
    Like a baby that has returned to her mother’s body.
 
    Within the warm and gentle amniotic fluid, her body is so small that it’s undetectable. It grows little by little.
 
    From bones, to flesh, to skin, to the meridians, to the Qi Sea… it grows bit by bit.
 
    Immediately after, Internal Force fills up her Qi Sea, making her body brim with power.
 
    However, the Tian Mo Qin’s power that rushed into her body is still too much.
 
    Her body is constantly changing.
 
    In her lower abdomen, a vortex slowly converges in her Qi Sea, dispersing one moment, and condensing in the next.
 
    Soon after, a mysterious place slowly forms.
 
    That is… the Dantian!
 
    When a person from Xiuzhen operates their Spiritual Energy, they would store it in their Dantian.
 
    But ordinary people that have reached the peak of Precelestial Stage would undergo through lightning tribulations, until they could finally reconstruct a Forged Body.
 
    Their Qi Sea would disappear, and turn into the Dantian. They would no longer be able to store Internal Force, and only be able to store Spiritual Energy.
 
    At Muyan’s lower abdomen however, a Dantian and a Qi Sea are formed.
 
    Her Internal Force is still filling up, reaching the high Precelestial Stage.
 
    And the Spiritual Power in the Space also begins to frantically rush into Muyan, gathering into her Dantian.
 
    At this moment, Muyan becomes the only Practitioner in the Yanwu Continent who cultivates two types of Mysterious Force.
 
    However, all of this is far from over!
 
    After her Dantian is formed, the Tian Mo Qin’s tremendous power begins to crazily wreak havoc in Muyan’s body.
 
    Her meridians expand little by little, until they are torn apart, then they heal bit by bit.
 
    This kind of pain simply cannot be placed into words.
 
    Those who go through it would just wish they could die right there and then.
 
    But Muyan thinks of Xiao Bao, she thinks of her brother Shen Jinglin, and she also thinks of Di Ming Jue.
 
    She thought that coming to Jin Wangfu this time wouldn’t be dangerous.
 
    Once she has taken Lou Beiyu, she could still probe about the real situation of the Heavenly Road Sect.
 
    In this kind of accident that arose from many causes, if she doesn’t come back, how broken-hearted would Xiao Bao and the others be?

Chapter 397: Heavenly Vision
 
    After the skin – the eyes, nose, and mouth follows.
 
    In the short span of a tea time, Zhu Hai’s entire body is already riddled with holes, he doesn’t appear human.
 
    No, his appearance is even more terrible than ghosts or rotten corpses.
 
    In the beginning, he was still able to scream, until this eventually dwindles down, exhausted.
 
    But unfortunately, he doesn’t die, and he can only bear with this kind of suffering all throughout.
 
    “Kill me… I beg you to kill me… wuu… wuuu…”
 
    Soon, his tongue and throat is also corroded by the fire-red little bugs, and he could no longer make even the smallest of sounds.”
 
    Even if it’s come to this point, he still doesn’t die.
 
    “Jun Shang!” Han Ye kneels down, “Jun Shang, please quell your anger!”
 
    “Jun Shang, please quell your anger!” Ying Mei also follows to kneel down.
 
    Shen Jinglin and everyone from the Ink Camp doesn’t know what’s happening, but they only feel an instinctive fear.
 
    The earth seems to be shaking.
 
    In the air, they seem to hear the wailing sounds of creatures.
 
    Indeed, this is the origin will of the entire Yanwu Continent under turmoil, unable to withstand it.
 
    All of a sudden, Xiao Bao reaches out a hand, and softly waves at Di Ming Jue’s line of sight, “…let’s go look for niangqin! Let’s go now.”
 
    The murderous intent in Di Ming Jue’s eyes slowly recede, his gaze falling on Xiao Bao.
 
    It’s Xiao Bao’s voice that made him come to his senses, not letting him use excessive power to cause the continent’s collapse.
 
    And that sentence: go and look for Muyan!
 
    Anyone who covets his Muyan, he will inevitable let them die without a burial site.
 
    The energy within Di Ming Jue rushes into motion, and he’s just about to simply set off while carrying Xiao Bao.
 
    All of a sudden, at the distant eastern horizon,
 
    A five-colored radiance bursts out.
 
    Immediately after that, on the originally unremarkable sky, the cloud-covered moon suddenly becomes as dazzling as a scorching sun.
 
    But it’s not the red-hot radiance that could burn, but it’s a pure and holy white light, like flowing silver sand, bright and cool.
 
    Then on the sky, glittering stars slowly appear around the moon, one after another.
 
    These stars all have distinctive colors.
 
    The only thing that’s the same between them, is that they are tens of hundreds of times brighter than all the other stars in the sky.
 
   One, two, three… eight, nine. A total of nine stars appear on the sky above, and together with the sun-like radiance of the moon – the originally pitch-black earth becomes as bright as it is on daytime.
 
    Everyone raises their heads to look up at the sky, and they’re all stunned by this Heavenly Vision.
 
    “This… what is this?! How can the moon be so bright and so huge, and what are those nine stars? Why had this never appeared before?”
 
    The nine stars appear one after another, then they slowly move in arcs, until the moon is surrounded and protected between them.
 
    Seeing this scene, Di Ming Jue, Han Ye and Ying Mei – they open their eyes wide, simply unable to believe what they’re seeing.
 
    “J-J-Jun… Jun Shang? That… isn’t that the Rivalry Between the Moon and the Stars, the Nine Luminaries and the Moon?! How… how can this kind of Heavenly Vision possibly appear?”
 
    “Could it be that… that the legendary Spiritual Root that could match with Jun Shang is born?!”
 
    But how is this possible?! Isn’t it said, that because of that Spiritual Root’s special circumstances, it could no longer be born within heaven and earth?
 
    What’s more, it’s even in this Yanwu Continent that doesn’t have Spiritual Energy?!
 
    Di Ming Jue’s pupils slowly contract.
 
    Shen Jinling’s voice could be heard, “If I’m not mistaken, that… that should be the direction of Huang Yao’s Imperial City.”
 
    Huang Yao’s Imperial City, that’s also the direction of Jin Wangfu.
 
    Jun Muyan is there.
 
    In the end, who brought about this kind of Heavenly Vision?
 
    Is it… Miss Jun?

Chapter 396: An honor that’s as big as the sky
    However, Zhu Hai doesn’t feel even a little bit of pleasant surprise about it. On the contrary, he’s so frightened that his face has an unnatural color, and he’s shaking all over like sieve.
    Xiao Bao’s ice-cold gaze sweeps around, until it finally lands on Zhu Hai. With a bone-piercing chill, “They took niangqin away!”
    Di Ming Jue’s eyes darken, and he gestures with his hand.
    Zhu Hai falls from the sky until he’s in front of Di Ming Jue.
    As soon as his foot touches the ground, Zhu Hai turns around, wanting to run away.
    Clash–!
    There’s a cold glint, Ying Mei has unsheathed her sword and she swings it over.
    “Aaa–!!”
    Zhu Hai lets out a sad and shrill scream, and he tumbles down to the ground.
    One of his feet flies out, and falls into the underbrush at the side.
    Blood rushes out like a tide.
    Losing such a large amount of blood, it wouldn’t take too before he dies.
    But against reason, that cut is very peculiar. After it was chopped off, it slowly solidifies with ice.
    The flow of blood gradually stops as well.
    Leaving Zhu Hai only with a bone-deep pain.
    “You… you people cannot kill me… I am Jin Wangye’s subordinate, his confidant. If you kill me, Huang Yao Country and Jin Wangye will absolutely… absolutely never let you people get away with it!”
    “Jin Wangye?” Di Ming Jue slowly enunciates those words.
    Yan Haotian steps forward, and signs with his hands: “Back in Xia’an, it was Jing Wangye who sent betrothal gifts, wanting to marry Miss as a side concubine.”
    Shen Jinglin listens to Feng Haitang interpreting the hand signs, and he becomes agitated and indignant, “Which bullshit Wangye actually wants to make my little sister go and be a concubine, you people are dreaming of spring and autumn in your heads*!”
  • the process of going mentally ill
    As he’s saying that, he hatefully sends a punch towards Zhu Hai.
    Poor Zhu Hai, a peak Heaven Stage expert, is completely unable to resist against an early Earth Stage Shen Jinglin’s attack.
    He can’t even operate his Mysterious Energy to resist.
    A solid, firm strike hits him in the face. In a flash, his nose bone shatters, and he spits out two of his teeth.
    Di Ming Jue’s voice is still ice-cold, unfriendly and distant.
    It’s as if you can’t ever hear half of the man’s state of mind.
    “What does your Master want to do by taking Muyan?”
    Zhu Hai extremely hates this, but he’s also extremely scared. Hearing the question, he can only reply with a trembling voice: “Our… our Wangye sincerely adores Miss Jun. This time, she won’t be some side concubine, but she’ll be married as an official wife.”
    “After seven days, everyone in the world will know that the Jin Wangfei is Jun Muyan. Such a… such an honor that’s as big as the sky, I don’t think there’s any woman in the world who wouldn’t want to…”
    “Like hell there isn’t a woman who wouldn’t want to!!” Shen Jinglin bellows once again, and he ruthlessly stamps on Zhu Hai’s remaining good leg.
    There’s a cracking sound, and his leg bone breaks.
    Zhu Hai once again produces a pig-like screech.
    After screaming, he very fiercely glares at Shen Jinglin and Di Ming Jue.
    “I don’t know just who you people are, but you raised your hands against me, and there’s no way that you’ll have a good end. Do you know who Jin Wangye is? What power he has behind him?”
    Suddenly, Zhu Hai’s mad laughter turns into a heart-tearing, lung-splitting scream.
    At a speed visible to the naked eye, the flesh on his body splits with countless bloody holes.
    The insides have a fiery red color, and it’s as if some bug-like things are boring their way out.
    On Zhu Hai’s skin, where the fiery-red little bugs come out, the flesh begins to rapidly burn and rot, producing a wave of stench.
