Chapter 117: Demonic Dandelion Vine

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

As time pa.s.sed, the people infected in Xiaoxia City also increased.

In less than two minutes after it had leveled up to silver-level, a shockwave came from its body and it upgraded to silver-level rank-2 and with that, its body color brightened.

Charcoal continuously attacked it but the blood-colored vine retaliated forcefully. A loud bang echoed and this time, Charcoal was blown away by the hit, smas.h.i.+ng its head on the rock wall. Lin Huang could hear Charcoal’s growl of anger though he was unable to witness what was happening.

“Xiao Hei, how long more do you need?” Lin Huang was panicked but Xiao Hei did not answer him.

After blowing Charcoal away, the blood-colored vine went back to attacking the ground and Lin Huang underneath it. Soon, the ground collapsed. The energy sphere protected Lin Huang who was hiding right at the bottom of it.

Lin Huang was extremely nervous because he was afraid that the ground would collapse any moment.

Fortunately, the blood-colored vine stopped attacking after a short while because Charcoal attacked it after recovering from its previous attack.

Knowing that his power was reduced to absolute inferiority, Charcoal decided not to launch a frontal attack but to wrestle it instead.

Flapping his wings, Charcoal spewed fire at the blood-colored vine continuously while dodging its attacks.

The dragon flames had no effect on the blood-colored vine but the burning sensation in its body annoyed it even more. It swung its vines to stop the flames but missed.

Seemingly, the blood-colored vine had noticed that Charcoal was there to distract it from attacking the ground. It decided not to bother with Charcoal and turned the tip of its vine into a drill bit to drill into the ground.

Underground, Lin Huang was still in his Specter form. There were changes to his vision that he experienced; he was able to see through the soil as if it was semi-transparent. He was initially in an upright direction and now he was lying down, with his body adhered firmly to the base of the energy sphere.

The tip of the drill was less than one meter away from him. Lin Huang’s back was drenched in sweat. It would certainly wound him badly if he was struck by the blood-colored vine since its combat abilities were now silver-level rank-2.

Charcoal needed to get the blood-colored vine’s attention. Charcoal pounced on the blood-colored vine once again with a close attack.

Although the combat abilities of the blood-colored vine had become stronger in addition to a substantial increase in its defensive power, Charcoal’s attack was no longer as effective as it used to be. However, wounds still appeared on its body right after it was attacked by Charcoal’s sharp claws and mouth claw.

Charcoal had triggered the blood-colored vine again and it was angry. It gave up attacking Lin Huang and fought Charcoal instead.

The blood-colored vine wrapped its vines around Charcoal’s neck. Its force was now beyond what Charcoal could handle. Charcoal could not get rid of it at all and struggled using its mouth and claws at the same time.

“Warning: Charcoal encountered a fatal attack. Please recall it immediately!” A notification suddenly popped up in front of Lin Huang.

“Recall Charcoal!” Lin Huang instructed because if Charcoal died, its monster card would disappear as well. It was not easy to obtain an Epic dragonkin.

Once the instruction to recall it was given, Charcoal instantly turned into a card and returned to Lin Huang’s body.

The vines with the circ.u.mference of an adult arm transformed into a drill bit and penetrated the ground repeatedly.

“Xiao Hei, how long more do you still need? Please answer me!”

Lin Huang felt that he could not withstand the force anymore. The vine’s attack had swept away most of the ground close to him. The closest attack it made was less than 20 centimeters away from the back of his head. If the vines twisted upward a little more, it would have drilled a hole in Lin Huang’s head.

“Done!” Lin Huang could sense the warmth on his palm vanish.

The blood-colored vine growled loudly. One of its vines fell right on Lin Huang’s head. It was so fast that Lin Huang could not avoid it. At this moment, Charcoal was summoned once again and it covered Lin Huang as he ran.

The blood-colored vine’s fatal attack struck Charcoal’s on its left wing and dragon blood splattered all over the place.

Lin Huang turned back and saw the scene.

“Summon Bai!” Lin Huang ordered.

The next moment, Bai appeared in the underground cavern too.

“Upgrade him the second time!” Lin Huang instructed again. The reason why he summoned and upgraded Bai was so that they could attack the parasite together.

“Are you sure you would like to use two Advance Cards to upgrade Bai?”

“I’m sure!”

Two beams of golden light filled the air, enveloping Bai. Soon, it had completely morphed into a big golden coc.o.o.n with Bai wrapped inside.

The strange aura Bai exuded caught the blood-colored vine’s attention. As it saw a big golden coc.o.o.n on the ground, it sensed something alarming and immediately attacked the coc.o.o.n, stopping the mutation of the monster that appeared all of a sudden.

If this was an ordinary monster mutation, perhaps its attack could hinder the mutation. However, with the Advancement Card, the process would not be interrupted. Even if it was attacked by a demiG.o.d, the outcome could not be altered. The blood-colored vine’s attack was useless.

In less than one minute, the golden coc.o.o.n disappeared.

A young man with white hair appeared again in front of Lin Huang, his aura was even more deadly and dangerous. However, there was a mask on his face that covered half of his face.

“Congratulations! You have gained an Epic Monster Card – Four-Winged Blood Baron (G.o.d’s Servant).”

At this moment, the blood-colored vine launched an attack again.

All of a sudden, Bai’s eyes turned b.l.o.o.d.y and he extended four of his crimson-colored wings, turning into a stream of blood and disappeared from the ground.

He acted so fast that Lin Huang could not capture it at all.

“Charcoal, you will a.s.sist Bai to kill the parasite!” Lin Huang ordered.

The wound on Charcoal’s wing was recovering. He was born with extremely fast healing abilities.

He fluttered his wings again and spat dragon flames on the blood-colored vine repeatedly and it no longer had the recovery ability from the energy sphere.

On the other hand, four of the crimson-colored wings behind Bai had turned into four b.l.o.o.d.y, sharp blades that cut the blood-colored vine at a terribly fast speed. His body resembled a beam of b.l.o.o.d.y light, shuttling back and forth underground, cutting up multiple parts of the parasite’s body.

Although the blood-colored vine defense was astonis.h.i.+ng, Bai’s sharp wings were more powerful than gold-rank equipment.

There were too many wounds on the vine’s body because of Bai’s wings and Charcoal attacked it from the other side. Soon, it was exhausted.

Lin Huang then noticed that the aura of the blood-colored vine rising again.

He did not know that there were more than 100,000 people infected in Xiaoxia City. Furthermore, many of them were bronze-level hunters and some were even silver-hunters.

The silver glow was constantly gus.h.i.+ng out of the blood-colored vine’s body. This was a sign that it was going to breakthrough once again to silver-level rank-3.

When he was underneath the blood-colored vine, he emerged from the ground and transformed back into himself. He grabbed a Sword Relic and used Thunder Sword on the wound caused by Bai earlier.

Lin Huang’s lightning-fast action caught the blood-colored vine off guard. Its gigantic body was cut in half by the sharp relic but it did not die. A vine that was transformed into a drill bit fiercely penetrated Lin Huang’s stomach and came out from his waist. This strike had blown his body away causing him to hang in mid-air, making him look like bacon hanging on a hook.

Lin Huang spat out a mouthful of blood. Before he lost his consciousness, he was able to say, “Use the Healing Card…”

As soon as Lin Huang regained his consciousness, he saw that Bai and Charcoal were beside him.

“Where is the parasite?” He saw that the blood-colored vine was no longer moving.

“It’s dead?!” Lin Huang could not believe his eyes.

“Congratulations. You have gained an Epic Parasite Species Card. The parasite belongs to a new species of monster. It does not have a name. You may name it.”

“Then I’ll name it the Demonic Dandelion Vine.” Lin Huang recalled the demonic dandelion tree that he read from a novel. It was a parasitic monster too. He chose this name.

I gi’ed my love the white white rose That’s at my feyther’s wa’, It is the bonniest flower that grows Whaur ilka flower is braw; There’s but ae bonnier that I ken Frae Perth unto the main, An’ that’s the flower o’ Scotland’s men That’s fechtin’ for his ain.

Gin I had kept whate’er was mine As I hae gie’d my best, My he’rt were licht by day, and syne The nicht wad bring me rest; There is nae heavier he’rt to find Frae Forfar toon to Ayr, As aye I sit me doon to mind On him I see nae mair.

Lad, gin ye fa’ by Chairlie’s side To rid this land o’ shame, There winna be a prooder bride Than her ye left at hame, But I will seek ye whaur ye sleep Frae lawlands to the peat, An ilka nicht at mirk I’ll creep To lay me at yer feet.

MAGGIE

Maggie, I ken that ye are happ’d in glory And nane can gar ye greet; The joys o’ Heaven are evermair afore ye, It’s licht about yer feet.

I ken nae waefu’ thochts can e’er be near ye Nor sorrow fash yer mind, In yon braw place they winna let ye weary For him ye left behind.

Thae nichts an’ days when dule seems mair nor double I’ll need to dae my best, For aye ye took the half o’ ilka trouble, And noo I’d hae ye rest.

Yer he’rt’ll be the same he’rt since yer flittin’, Gin auld love doesna tire, Sae dinna look an’ see yer lad that’s sittin’

His lane aside the fire.

The sky is keen wi’ dancin’ stars in plenty, The New Year frost is strang; But, O my la.s.s! because the Auld Year kent ye I’m sweir to let it gang!

But time drives forrit; and on ilk December There waits a New Year yet, An naething bides but what our he’rts remember– Maggie, ye’ll na forget?

THE WHUSTLIN’ LAD

There’s a wind comes doon frae the braes when the licht is spreadin’

Chilly an’ grey, An’ the auld c.o.c.k craws at the yett o’ the muirland steadin’

Cryin’ on day; The hoose lies sound an’ the sma’ mune’s deein’ an’ weary Watchin’ her lane, The shadows creep by the d.y.k.e an’ the time seems eerie, But the lad i’ the fields he is whustlin’ cheery, cheery, ‘Yont i’ the rain.

My mither stirs as she wauks wi’ her twa een blinkin’, Bedded she’ll bide, For foo can an auld wife ken what a la.s.sie’s thinkin’

Close at her side?

Mither, lie still, for ye’re needin’ a rest fu’ sairly, Weary an’ worn, Mither, I’ll rise, an’ ye ken I’ll be warkin’ fairly– An’ I dinna ken _wha_ can be whustlin’, whustlin’, aerly, Lang or it’s morn!

Gin ye hear a sound like the sneck o’ the backdoor turnin’, Fash na for it; It’s just the crack i’ the lum o’ the green wood burnin’, Ill to be lit; Gin ye hear a step, it’s the auld mear loose i’ the stable Stampin’ the strae, Or mysel’ that’s settin’ the parritch-spunes on the table, Sae turn ye aboot an’ sleep, mither, sleep while ye’re able, Rest while ye may.

Up at the steadin’ the trail o’ the mist has lift.i.t Clear frae the grund, Mither breathes saft an’ her face to the wa’ she’s shift.i.t– Aye, but she’s sound!

Lad, ye may come, for there’s nane but mysel’ will hear ye Oot by the stair, But whustle you on an’ I winna hae need to fear ye, For, laddie, the lips that keep whustlin’, whustlin’ cheery Canna dae mair!

HOGMANAY

(TO A PIPE TUNE)

O, it’s fine when the New and the Auld Year meet, An’ the lads gang roarin’ i’ the licht.i.t street, An’ there’s me and there’s Alick an’ the miller’s loon, An’ Geordie that’s the piper oot o’ Forfar toon.

Geordie Faa! Geordie Faa!

Up wi’ the chanter, lad, an’ gie’s a blaw!

For we’ll step to the tune while we’ve feet in till oor shune, Tho’ the bailies an’ the provost be to sort us a’!

We’ve three bonnie bottles, but the third ane’s toom, Gin’ the road ran whisky, it’s mysel’ wad soom!

But we’ll stan’ while we can, an’ be dancin’ while we may, For there’s twa we hae to finish, an’ it’s Hogmanay.

Geordie Faa! Geordie Faa!

There’s an auld carle glow’rin’ oot ahint yon wa’, But we’ll sune gar him loup to the pipin’ till he coup, For we’ll gi’e him just a drappie, an’ he’ll no say na!

My heid’s dement.i.t an’ my feet’s the same, When they’ll no wark thegither it’s a lang road hame; An’ we’ve twa mile to traivel or it’s mair like three, But I’ve got a grip o’ Alick, an’ ye’d best grip me.

Geordie Faa! Geordie Faa!

The morn’s near brakin’ an’ we’ll need awa’, Gin ye’re aye blawin’ strang, then we’ll maybe get alang, An’ the deevil tak’ the laddie that’s the first to fa’!

CRAIGO WOODS

Craigo Woods, wi’ the splash o’ the cauld rain beatin’

I’ the back end o’ the year, When the clouds hang laigh wi’ the weicht o’ their load o’ greetin’

And the autumn wind’s asteer; Ye may stand like gaists, ye may fa’ i’ the blast that’s cleft ye To rot i’ the chilly dew, But when will I mind on aucht since the day I left ye Like I mind on you–on you?

Craigo Woods, i’ the licht o’ September sleepin’

And the saft mist o’ the morn, When the hairst climbs to yer feet, an’ the sound o’ reapin’

Comes up frae the stookit corn, And the braw reid puddock-stules are like jewels blinkin’

And the bramble happs ye baith, O what do I see, i’ the lang nicht, lyin’ an’ thinkin’

As I see yer wraith–yer wraith?

There’s a road to a far-aff land, an’ the land is yonder Whaur a’ men’s hopes are set; We dinna ken foo lang we maun hae to wander, But we’ll a’ win to it yet; An’ gin there’s woods o’ fir an’ the licht atween them, I winna speir its name, But I’ll lay me doon by the puddock-stules when I’ve seen them, An’ I’ll cry “I’m hame–I’m hame!”

THE WILD GEESE

“O tell me what was on yer road, ye roarin’ norlan’ Wind, As ye cam’ blawin’ frae the land that’s niver frae my mind?

My feet they traivel England, but I’m dee’in for the north.”

“My man, I heard the siller tides rin up the Firth o’ Forth.”

“Aye, Wind, I ken them weel eneuch, and fine they fa’ an’ rise, And fain I’d feel the creepin’ mist on yonder sh.o.r.e that lies, But tell me, ere ye pa.s.sed them by, what saw ye on the way?”

“My man, I rocked the rovin’ gulls that sail abune the Tay.”

“But saw ye naething, leein’ Wind, afore ye cam’ to Fife?

There’s muckle lyin’ ‘yont the Tay that’s mair to me nor life.”

“My man, I swept the Angus braes ye hae’na trod for years.”

Chapter 1177: Getting back whats lost

As time went on, the s.n.a.t.c.her’s health dropped. When it was around 10%, my heartbeat got faster and faster. Not far away, Clear Black Eyes was still smiling. The reason why she was so calm was definitely that she was confident. What was her trump card?

Right at that moment, dozens of black crossbow chariots were pushed out by players.

Not good!

These weren’t crossbow chariots but they were shooting nets. They were trying to weave a huge net made of iron. My heart sank and my spine felt cold. Clear Black Eyes was trying to use this method to capture dragons, hawks etc flying units, but this time… They were using it on me!

Things weren’t good. I looked at the s.n.a.t.c.her and his health continued to drop. I had less time and when needed, I really had to use invincibility to dive down!

“7%!”

“6%!”

“5%!”

Each second the Boss’s health dropped and I didn’t have much time. When it was at 3%, this meant that the Boss would die within 10 seconds. This was my chance!

I made my mind up. If I die then so be it, time to steal it!

“Shua!”

With Icy Wings, I dove down with my swords in the sky. I used Seven Star Fragment Slash and sword energy stabbed into the back of the boss and also into the crowd. I instantly killed seven- eight people. I was also 50 yards near to the ground.

“Now!”

Clear Black Eyes shouted. Not far away, the Dragon Hunting Chariots adjusted their direction and shot out much high speed rotating nets. I saw through them and spun about, changing directions twice to dodge 4 nets. I descended and then used Double Hit+Wind Blade on the back of the Boss. I was also pretty much riding the Boss.

“Ang ang…”

A cry as s.n.a.t.c.her Daren fell to the ground. Although I was messing things up but the Indian players didn’t stop attacking. What they wanted was for the Saint Spirit Box to drop. As for the equipment he dropped, they didn’t care. Even if he dropped a five star G.o.d artifact, it couldn’t compare to the box. Moreover, this was a quest that appeared in their city, if they lost it, the negative effect would be huge.

“Attack!”

A bunch of Berserkers, Warriors and Cavalries charged. In the pile of stuff that was dropped, a golden box was there. Saint Spirit Box!

I was delighted. I landed and used Seven Stars Teleportation to flash to that location. My boots used Ice Domain and froze the people around. I grabbed the Saint Spirit Box and placed it into my bag before flying away!

“Ding!”

System Notification: Player Xiao Yao Zi Zai (China) has obtained the Saint Spirit Box. He is at Seven Shine Forest (31177, 24991), kill him and he will drop the Saint Spirit Box. Obtain the box and maintain it for 7 hours to obtain the treasure within!

Lin Wan Er’s voice appeared in the party chat, “Ha, amazing, you really got it!”

Dong Cheng Yue, “As expected from our boss,

hehe!”

But I didn’t feel happy at all as when I was 10 meters in the air, I couldn’t fly any higher. The Saint Spirit Box affected my flight. If not I could just fly ten thousand meters into the air and no one would be able to do anything to me.

“Dragon Hunting Chariots, fire!” Beautiful Life’s deputy Ink Iron Boots shouted.

At the same time, Clear Black Eyes pushed aside the players that were aiming and she aimed herself. Her eyes were filled with rage.

My angle was locked up and numerous arrows, spells and sword energies surged at me. At the same time, three nets flew at me. I forced myself to stop to barely dodge. Before I could feel happy about it, Mei’er’s icy wings were unable to spread out as she was wrapped up by a net.

d.a.m.n!

In less than a second, three nets wrapped me from three directions such that I couldn’t fly. What was worse was that they were so heavy that I couldn’t help but fall to the ground.

My health was less than 20%. If I didn’t attack I couldn’t lifesteal!

Undying Body!

I hollered and used Undying Body. At the same time as me landed on the ground, the cavalries charged over. They were really cruel. I used Sword Tempest and also summoned Thundering Heavens. A thick lightning bold smashed with me at the center and a lightning dragon swept around. The players around were instantly killed.

However, I still couldn’t fly. I was. .h.i.t by their ranged players and even Clear Black Eyes was firing at me. Even if I drank a potion but once Undying Body disappeared i would get killed. Then things would be over!

“Mei’er!” I shouted, “Break free!”

Mei’er who was hiding within my body replied. Energy formed into a claw that stretched from the wings on my back. Along with Mei’er shouting, one side of the net was ripped apart. I also slashed forwards. My swords were five star weapons and they were really sharp. “Cha cha” and the iron net was ripped.

Good, I was free!

However, before I could feel happy, there was the sound of an arrow and another net trapped me. The net had spikes and it was really painful on the skin.

“Trap him, don’t let him charge out. Go all out!” Clear Black Eyes shouted.

She didn’t know how long my Invincible Body lasted for.

Just like that, I dragged the net to charge forwards while killing those that stopped me. However, I couldn’t pick up speed at all. Everyone knew that mounts needed time to gain speed. Mei’er needed 1-3 seconds but due to the net, she couldn’t increase her speed at all.

Clear Black Eyes, Ink Iron Boots were afraid of my killing ability so they didn’t get close. Even if I used Seven Stars Teleportation, I was still dragging the net. I was surrounded by them and it was impossible to flee.

A giant choice was in front of me, should I wait to get killed or give up on the Saint Spirit Box to live.

If I went all out, Overlord Set would allow me to revive with 30% increase in stats. However, since I was surrounded, I needed to die 4-5 times to ensure that they couldn’t break my defence. This price might be too huge and I didn’t know if I would drop the Saint Spirit Box at death. If someone took it, it would be a wasted chance.

I had to decide. Which was the better choice!

The moment Invincible Body disappeared, I tossed Saint Spirit Box onto the ground. My body felt really light, like an ancient seal was released. I waved my swords and broke free. No one could stop me now as I was up 30 meters in just a second. Clear Black Eyes couldn’t aim as quick as I flew.

“Wa, so quick…” She stood on the ground and looked at me in shock, “Boots, take the Saint Spirit Box!”

The system notification showed that player Xiao Yao Zi Zai China had dropped the Saint Spirit Box. Probably all the players knew that I didn’t succeed.

“What happened, piggy are you fine?” Lin Wan Er asked in concern.

I healed up while saying, “I am fine but it is too difficult. Clear Black Eyes didn’t give me a chance. Wan Er be careful. Clear Black Eyes has a Dragon Hunting Chariot that can restrict flying units. I lost because of that. Moreover, the person with the box can only fly 10 metes high so dragon riders don’t have an advantage.”

Lin Wan Er said, “Okay, I need to change the plan. This is tough.”

Dong Cheng Yue said, “Now what should we do?”

I, “I shall fly in the sky and follow the box. I will attack once there is a chance. I don’t believe that Clear Black Eyes can push the chariot around.”

“That…” Lin Wan Er was a little worried, “If they bring the Saint Spirit Box and enter Saint Spirit Box, then wouldn’t we have to attack their city? Tens of millions are guarding then we won’t have any chance.”

I nodded, “Right, I am worried about that. How long will Li Mu take to arrive?”

“At least two hours.”

“A little slow…”

“En, wait a while, there will definitely be a chance.”

“En!”

Right at that moment, I raised my head and saw a patch of green. Along with heavy horse hoof sounds, I was delighted. The Americans were here!

Strong Wind Cavalry, Blades of War’s strongest troops and also Sky Rose’s trump card.

The south of the forest, tens of thousands of Strong Wind Cavalry had started to kill Beautiful Life players. Sky Rose was quick and he had arrived not long after I had.

The person with the Saint Spirit Box was Ink Iron Boots. He hugged the box while shouting, “Clear eyes, what now? Charge at them or find another direction?”

Clear Black Eyes looked above and her eyes were filled with helplessness, “No, Xiao Yao is still here. We can’t split up. Charge and deal with Blades of War. As long as we break down their attack, we can enter Seven Shine City. Then no one will be able to touch the Saint Spirit Box!”

“Okay!”

DEAR CHILD,

_Please to fancy, if you can, that you are reading a real letter, from a real friend whom you have seen, and whose voice you can seem to yourself to hear wishing you, as I do now with all my heart, a happy Easter._

_Do you know that delicious dreamy feeling when one first wakes on a summer morning, with the twitter of birds in the air, and the fresh breeze coming in at the open window–when, lying lazily with eyes half shut, one sees as in a dream green boughs waving, or waters rippling in a golden light? It is a pleasure very near to sadness, bringing tears to one’s eyes like a beautiful picture or poem. And is not that a Mother’s gentle hand that undraws your curtains, and a Mother’s sweet voice that summons you to rise? To rise and forget, in the bright sunlight, the ugly dreams that frightened you so when all was dark–to rise and enjoy another happy day, first kneeling to thank that unseen Friend, who sends you the beautiful sun_?

_Are these strange words from a writer of such tales as “Alice”?

And is this a strange letter to find in a book of nonsense? It may be so. Some perhaps may blame me for thus mixing together things grave and gay; others may smile and think it odd that any one should speak of solemn things at all, except in church and on a Sunday: but I think–nay, I am sure–that some children will read this gently and lovingly, and in the spirit in which I have written it._

_For I do not believe G.o.d means us thus to divide life into two halves–to wear a grave face on Sunday, and to think it out-of-place to even so much as mention Him on a week-day. Do you think He cares to see only kneeling figures, and to hear only tones of prayer–and that He does not also love to see the lambs leaping in the sunlight, and to hear the merry voices of the children, as they roll among the hay? Surely their innocent laughter is as sweet in His ears as the grandest anthem that ever rolled up from the “dim religious light” of some solemn cathedral?_

_And if I have written anything to add to those stores of innocent and healthy amus.e.m.e.nt that are laid up in books for the children I love so well, it is surely something I may hope to look back upon without shame and sorrow (as how much of life must then be recalled!) when_ my _turn comes to walk through the valley of shadows._

_This Easter sun will rise on you, dear child, feeling your “life in every limb,” and eager to rush out into the fresh morning air_–_and many an Easter-day will come and go, before it finds you feeble and gray-headed, creeping wearily out to bask once more in the sunlight–but it is good, even now, to think sometimes of that great morning when the “Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in his wings.”_

_Surely your gladness need not be the less for the thought that you will one day see a brighter dawn than this–when lovelier sights will meet your eyes than any waving trees or rippling waters–when angel-hands shall undraw your curtains, and sweeter tones than ever loving Mother breathed shall wake you to a new and glorious day–and when all the sadness, and the sin, that darkened life on this little earth, shall be forgotten like the dreams of a night that is past!_

_Your affectionate friend_,

_LEWIS CARROLL_.

EASTER, 1876.

CHRISTMAS GREETINGS.

[FROM A FAIRY TO A CHILD.]

Lady dear, if Fairies may For a moment lay aside Cunning tricks and elfish play, ‘Tis at happy Christmas-tide.

We have heard the children say– Gentle children, whom we love– Long ago, on Christmas Day, Came a message from above.

Still, as Christmas-tide comes round, They remember it again– Echo still the joyful sound “Peace on earth, good-will to men!”

Yet the hearts must childlike be Where such heavenly guests abide: Unto children, in their glee, All the year is Christmas-tide!

Thus, forgetting tricks and play For a moment, Lady dear, We would wish you, if we may, Merry Christmas, glad New Year!

Chapter 2826: A Non-family Member Should Not Enter the Same House

Translator: Atlas Studios Editor:Atlas Studios

“Wedding candies?” Old Mr. Han did not think of this. “Why give wedding candies for this? This is not a weddin|

“It’s joyful news too anyway,” said Old Mrs. Han.

“There’s no need for wedding candies. Our house doesn’t have any,” said Old Mr. Han. “When Man Man gives birth, we will send every house a red egg.”

Old Mrs. Han also agreed after pondering.

The firecrackers were leftovers from Han Zhuoli’s and Lu Man’s wedding, so there were some.

But there were no leftover wedding candies.

Han Zhuoling and s.h.i.+ Xiaoya had gotten their marriage certificate, but they had not started arranging their wedding, so there was none in the house.

‘There were no children in their house, so they did not prepare anything for the kids to snack on.

There were definitely no candies.

Old people did not like to eat food that was too sweet, and as for Han Zhuoli and the others, they did not like to eat sweet food either.

So Old Mrs. Han could only give up on the idea of giving out wedding candies.

She asked Butler w.a.n.g to hang the firecrackers at the gate outside. Old Mr. Han, Old Mrs. Han, and Auntie Sun immediately covered their ears.

After Butler w.a.n.g lit the firecrackers, he ran away rapidly. The noise of firecrackers could be heard even with ears covered.

It was only eight o’clock. Old Mrs. Han had calculated the time accurately to get Butler w.a.n.g to light the firecrackers.

The neighbors were all awake.

At this time, those who left later were eating breakfast at home.

Those who left earlier were already out of the house, preparing to get in the car.

All of a sudden, they heard the sound of firecrackers, and they jumped.

“Which house has joyful news?”

“I didn’t hear anything about it, and I didn’t see anyone sticking happiness stickers.”

“The most recent was the wedding of Han Zhuoli from the Han Family, but that was some time ago.”

With this curiosity, everyone came following the sound.

Even though the firecrackers finished cracking, the ground was full of firecracker debris.

Auntie Sun took out a wireless vacuum machine and sucked away all the broken pieces of paper.

But everyone saw that and knew that they were at the correct place.

It was indeed the house of the Han Family!

It was only Old Mrs. Han from the Han Family who was stupid every day!

If there was any noise around, it was definitely from their house.

“Madam, what happened? Your family… has good news?” asked a president who was in the same generation as Han Xijin.

Old Mrs. Han was overjoyed. Seeing that there were quite a lot of people, she said, “It’s my granddaughter-in-law, Lu Man.”

“Yes, yes, yes. We know.” Everyone nodded immediately.

Everyone surfed the web. Lu Man was very low-key nowadays, as if she was practicing self-cultivation.

But the constantly repeating drama online back then felt like yesterday.

Her stepfather was w.a.n.g Juhuai.

Even if she had nothing and had married into the family without any wealth from her own family, with Lu Man’s skills, she was able to fight on par with the daughters of those rich families.

After all, although they had their own skills, most of them depended on their families being behind them.

But Lu Man’s skill was creating family properties from nothing.

“Give a mana fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” was exactly this.

The benefits that a marriage between families brought were immediate.

However, with a girl who had so much capability like Lu Man, the benefits she brought to the family were long-lived.

‘Whether it was good or bad was unsure. It depended on the choice of each family.

But marrying Lu Man would never be a loss.

Now, it seemed that Lu Man did not lack anything that the daughters of the rich families had.

They all had their own strengths.

Besides, everyone felt that a non-family member should not enter the same house..

Chapter 2832: Have You Given Your Blessings?

Translator: Atlas Studios Editor:Atlas Studios

It’s true that a.s.sistant General Manager Yu did not get fired right away to prevent people from suspecting that he was taken revenge on at work due to personal issues.

But it gave General Manager He a chance, and it became the start of a.s.sistant General Manager Yu’s downfall.

After General Manager He had successfully fired a.s.sistant General Manager Yu, a.s.sistant General Manger Zhao took the spot.

General Manager He had better days after that.

a.s.sistant General Manager Zhao was not an idiot like a.s.sistant General Manager Yu. His chemistry with General Manager He during work was excellent.

Sometimes, there would definitely be disagreements during work.

However, it was not personal.

So General Manager He did not mind. It was very normal.

Seeing that a.s.sistant General Manager Zhao even knew to mention the rest of the employees, General Manager He felt that he was a really kind person.

Han Zhuoli nodded and smiled. “You guys are so considerate.”

“No way.” General Manager He smiled and said, “When Madame CEO came previously, we did not know about the pregnancy at all. Had we known, we would definitely have limited the employees, preventing them from das.h.i.+ng around.”

Han Zhuoli was satisfied and said, “It’s not too late to limit them now!”

Everyone was speechless.

‘The CEO did not hold back at all.

They could not keep Lu Man at the entrance, so everyone immediately let Han Zhuoli and Lu Man enter.

Even though only the executives and the managers from the various departments came, there were a lot of people.

A group of people followed Han Zhuoli and Lu Man. It looked spectacular.

In the hall, the employees who pa.s.sed by and the people at the front desk all congratulated Han Zhuoli and Lu Man.

Han Zhuoli nodded. “Looks like you have already seen Weibo. Good job.”

Han Zhuoli stopped and asked, “Have you given your blessings on Weibo?”

Everyone was speechless.

Vice President Zhang seized the opportunity to show his presence as he said to Han Zhuoli hurriedly, “CEO, I gave my blessings as soon as possible. I was afraid that there would be too many blessings and you would not see mine. I was afraid that if I gave my blessings too late, I would miss the perfect

time.”

Everyone was speechless.

Did he memorize the New Year greetings?

Vice President’s Zhang’s pa.s.sion was so cheesy that it made everyone sick.

They all elbowed each other secretly.

They even got gooseb.u.mps in this hot weather.

Unexpectedly, Han Zhuoli did not think it was cheesy at all. He even nodded. “I felt your blessings.”

Lu Man was speechless.

She was a little worried that perhaps Han Zhuoli’s style would be like this from now on.

Together with Lu Man, Han Zhuoli walked ahead.

The leaders of the various departments all looked like elites usually.

But now, they were like dogs following their owner. The scene of them sticking so close was unbearable to watch.

Han Zhuoli and Lu Man returned to the office. Lu Man discovered that there were more bolster pillows in the bedroom now. They were randomly arranged on the floor, but it looked extremely comfortable.

“This is for your convenience. You can lean on one of them wherever you are,” explained Zheng Tianming. “The carpet is soft, and I saw that you liked to sit on the carpet sometimes, so I placed a few more bolster pillows everywhere on the floor. No matter where you sit, a bolster pillow will be within your

reach for you to grab and lean on.”

Lu Man did not expect Zheng Tianming to be so kind. Surprised, she said, “Thank you so much. I didn’t think that you were so thoughtful.”

Han Zhuoli gave Zheng Tianming an unkind glance.

Zheng Tianming had stolen the chance for him to show his diligence. Was this what a qualified a.s.sistant should do?

” Zheng Tianming’s eyes twitched and he smiled. “It’s all because the CEO taught me well. I watched him too much and know his intentions, so I decided on my own to do thi:

Chapter 733 The Meeting of Nephew and Uncle in the Lan Family’s Courtyard

The carriage stopped steadily.

Lan Yuyan was the first to get out of the carriage. Then, Lan Yanwen jumped out of the carriage and held Mo Xuetong who had just come out of the carriage behind him. When she landed on the ground, he let go of her and walked in slowly. The smooth touch on her hand made his heart beat fast for a moment. The evening breeze blew over with a trace of coolness, and his mind became clear in an instant.

It was a large courtyard, and someone had already opened the gate. When they entered, the gate was closed.

In the dark, there were two people standing on a big tree beside the gate. The shorter one asked in a low voice, “Master, how is it? Do you want to follow them in?”

“Let’s go in.” The cold, elegant voice was a little lazy and intoxicating. His figure flashed first and disappeared inside the wall. The other person couldn’t help shaking his head and secretly scolded himself for being an idiot. His master had been tracking for thousands of miles and rushed here day and night. How could he not follow them in? His questions were superfluous. Then, with a flash, his figure disappeared from the tree.

Mo Xuetong was received in the study. A middle-aged man, who looked like in his 30s or 40s, sat at the head of the table timidly. Even though he was dressed luxuriously, he did not seem suitable for this environment. Behind him stood a man who looked like a butler, and there were two other maidservants serving him.

He was like a real master of the Lan Manor.

As he saw Mo Xuetong and the others entering, he stood up uneasily. At the sight of Lan Yanwen, he moved his feet subconsciously as if he wanted to go up to him. The butler standing behind him looked up coldly and reached out to pull him. Then, he seemed to suddenly think of something and stopped.

The he gave a cough and his gaze landed on Mo Xuetong, who was following Lan Yanwen. Immediately, he could not help but open his mouth wide in shock. He knew that his niece was a beautiful girl. Back then, his sister-in-law was a beautiful woman. Otherwise, she would not have gotten into trouble and angered the main branch of the Lan family. Then, their branch was chased out of the family by the main branch. Without the main branch’s care, their lives grew worse and worse.

Thinking of this, he didn’t like his elder brother’s daughter, so he had been ignoring her for so many years.

But he didn’t expect her to be so beautiful. No wonder the main branch had specially found him, took their branch into the Lan family, and asked him to persuade his niece.

“Luo’er, are you Luo’er? Come on, let Uncle have a look at you.” Thinking of the order of the main branch, he hurried to calm down and stepped forward excitedly, ignoring to return a salute to Lan Yanwen. He was just like an uncle who loved his niece. He couldn’t help but come over, and there was even a streak of tears in his eyes.

He had been out for a long time. Without money and support, he had to rely on himself for everything. He had already learned to flatter people and acted according to people’s expression. At this time, he was acting with great facility. He was full of confidence, thinking that it was not a big deal to persuade an ignorant niece.

At the thought of the terms that the main branch of the family had agreed to, his heart was beating heavily!

He said in a tearful voice and it was so heartwarming. His outstretched hands were tremulous; his eyes tearful and his lips slightly trembling. All these told of his excitement.

It was perfect and well-acted!

Mo Xuetong took a few steps back. Her eyes were filled with coldness. Qing Zhu stepped forward to block the way of the man who was rus.h.i.+ng to Mo Xuetong. She reached out to stop him and yelled angrily, “Who are you? How dare you offend my miss?”

A girl from a poor family thought that she was a lady of the direct descent of the family’s main branch and dared to put on airs in front of him. Lan Qing snorted unhappily. If he had known that this girl was so beautiful, he would have decided to adopt her. At this time, no matter if he married her off or gave her to someone else, he would get a lot of money.

How could Lan Qing be happy when he thought that he had lost the money for nothing?

But he had to continue acting.

“Little Luo, I am your uncle! I held you when you were a child. When your mother gave birth to you, I applied for residence for you. Why have you forgotten all about it now?”

When Lan Luo’s family got into trouble, she was still small. As a three or four-year-old child, she knew nothing. Lan Qing was a playboy, so how could he be close to a child? The only thing that he had done something for Lan Luo was that his eldest brother was ill, and he registered her residence. It was obviously not appropriate to talk about it at this time.

Yet, he couldn’t think of anything else.

Lan Yanwen frowned. It was obvious that he was a little unhappy. Lan Yuyan wore a smile on her face, but the disdain on her face was obviously revealed. She took two steps to the side and watched the fun.

The butler behind Lan Qing took several steps forward and said to Mo Xuetong with a smile, “Miss, you’re here. Old Sir is too excited, so he spoke incoherently. Elder Young Master Lan, Miss Lan, please sit down. I’ll get someone to serve tea immediately.”

“Yes, yes, yes, you sit down first and have a chat.” Lan Qing also came to his senses at this time and said with a hollow smile.

The sad atmosphere that he had deliberately created just now had been swept away!

Lan Yanwen’s face became more and more depressed. With a gloomy face, he returned to the seat of honor and sat down. He deeply felt that it was extremely unwise to find Lan Qing. He had no feelings for Lan Luo, so how could he persuade Lan Luo to listen to him? Lan Yanwen couldn’t help but land his eyes on the jade-white and indifferent face.

Her elegant face looked even more distant!

“Little Luo, your father is gone now, but I can’t let you be alone outside. No matter how good your uncle’s family is, he is still an outsider. Although I may not be able to guarantee your wealth and glory, it’s not a problem for you to eat well and wear warm clothes.” After sitting down, Lan Qing said in a tearful voice again.

If it weren’t for the wretched expression on his face, he would really look like an elder!

Lan Yanwen really couldn’t stand it anymore. He turned his head, took the cup of tea brought by a maidservant and took a sip of the tea. Then he lowered his head and remained silent.

The mocking smile on Lan Yuyan’s lips grew clearer and clearer. She turned her head to look at Mo Xuetong, who had a calm expression on her face. She was in a good mood and felt pleased. With such an uncle, Lan Luo would not be very decent. If the Crown Prince of the East Palace knew that she had such an unreasonable uncle, would he want her to enter the palace?

Lan Yuyan could guess what the Lan family was thinking this time—they wanted Lan Luo to enter the East Palace and give her up. Thinking of the handsome appearance of the Crown Prince, Lan Yuyan only felt jealous. If the little girl entered the East Palace, she would be a useless p.a.w.n. The Lan family never showed mercy to useless people. If she was casually sent to an old man as his wife or concubine in the future, she was more willing to be by the n.o.ble and handsome Crown Prince’s side.

Therefore, Lan Luo must not win recognition from the Lan family!

“Uncle?” Mo Xuetong sat down by the side. She looked up coldly and her dark eyes landed on Lan Qing. The smile on her lips was cold. “Uncle?”

“Yes, I am your uncle!” Lan Qing stated excitedly.

“If I remember correctly, my mother has been taken away partly because of my uncle! If not for you, my mother would not have been taken away.” Mo Xuetong’s smile suddenly disappeared and she said coldly. Her face darkened and her jade-like face looked naturally dignified.

Lan Yanwen’s eyes spontaneously landed on her face.

Lan Qing was stunned by her words. He didn’t expect his niece to be so fierce that she gave him a hard slap in the face in front of everyone. At that moment, he was ashamed and angry. He was embarra.s.sed and snapped angrily, “You little girl, what do you know? If your mother hadn’t been unruly and exposed herself outside, there wouldn’t have been so much trouble and my elder brother wouldn’t have been dead with her. You’d better not to recognize her as your mother.”

“It has nothing to do with you whether I recognize my mother or not. You are just an outsider. I didn’t grow up in the Lan family and do not have any kins.h.i.+p with the Lan family. I have wasted everyone’s hospitality. I really do not dare to acknowledge such an uncle. I am afraid that my mother would not close her eyes in the netherworld if I recognize him as my uncle,” Mo Xuetong said coldly.

She said these words without any burden. The Lan family had nothing to do with her. If she was Lan Luo, she felt that she would never recognize Lan Qing as her uncle. Just looking at his wandering eyes, she knew that there was something wrong with this person—he was definitely not a good person!

It was obvious that the Lan family had made a mistake to use cardinal principles of righteousness to suppress her.

Before the tongue-tied Lan Qing could react, she suddenly stood up and said to Lan Yanwen, “Minister of Public Works, if you want me to see this person today, then I’ve seen him now. I wonder if I can go back. No matter how powerful you are, it’s a great sin for me to go back to the palace so late.”

It was inappropriate for a girl who joined the Beauty Contest to leave the palace without permission. If she returned late, it would be hard to explain. Even though the Empress was there and no one would care about it, if Bai Yihao really wanted to make a fuss about it, it would become an obstacle for her to enter the East Palace. The Lan family had spent so much effort to draw Mo Xuetong over to their side not to make her a useless p.a.w.n.

“With that kind of air, is she really just an orphan girl who has lost her parents?”

Not only did she mercilessly hit Lan Qing, but she also pointed out what the Lan family cared about. Lan Yanwen looked up, and a trace of appreciation unconsciously appeared in his eyes. The corners of his mouth slightly curved into a smile, and it reached the bottom of his eyes.

Such a girl must be a bigger headache for the elders in the family. It seemed that it was not feasible to deal with her with family affection and filial piety. He actually looked forward to her next performance and hoped that she would not let him down.

Lan Yuyan opened her eyes and couldn’t come back to her senses. When a cool wind blew in through the gap of the door, she s.h.i.+vered. Was this really the weak girl who had been separated from the Lan family? Strong, she was really too strong. She dared to say that the Lan family was an outsider in front of the future head of the main branch and that she had no family affection with the Lan family.

She mentioned her mother in order to tell the Lan family that she had a grudge against them and would not accept the invitation from the Lan family. In the end, she even confronted Lan Yanwen directly, hinting that even though the Lan family was powerful, they could not hide it from everyone. Today, the Lan family took her out, and if something happened to her, the Lan family would not be able to escape the blame.

The beautiful woman’s words were gentle and her expression was light. She looked as if she was otherworldly, harmless and pure. However, from her words made people feel that the Lan family had evil intentions. The Crown Prince of the East Palace would be the future Emperor of the Yan Kingdom.

The woman chose for him would be the imperial concubine in the future. If an outstanding girl was picked out, she might be granted the position of imperial consort in the future or even enter the central palace. If such a woman was really controlled by the Lan family, how ambitious would the Lan family be? Judging from the look of the butler standing behind Lan Qing, he was a little tempted.

He watched as Mo Xuetong was about to walk out of the door, but he did not say anything.

Lan Yuyan suspected that this man was the chief butler of the Lan family, who had been hiding behind the scenes.

“Little Luo, relax. Let’s talk about it after you see this person.” Before Mo Xuetong reached the door of the hall, the door was suddenly opened. Someone laughed out loud and walked in with a clap.

At the sight of the person coming, the expression of Qing Zhu, who was standing behind Mo Xuetong, changed greatly. She moved forwards and protected Mo Xuetong behind her, looking at the person with vigilance.

Chapter 692: Duo Er
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

What Lin Huang was looking at was not a building, but rows and rows of buildings. It looked like it used to be a city. However, it seemed to have gone through a catastrophe. The buildings had collapsed, and even the houses were destroyed. There seemed to be no activity anymore.

“b.l.o.o.d.y, go take a look.” Lin Huang stood where he was, not wanting to get closer to the city at the moment.

b.l.o.o.d.y released its Leech Pods which then floated in the underground city sky. Soon, it came back with results.

“This should be an empty city. There’re no signs of human or monsters.”

Lin Huang was not surprised. After all, this ruins had existed for many years. Judging from the damage, there should not be anyone living there anymore.

“There’s a tower-like building in the middle of the city that seems perfectly fine. If there’s really any treasure here, it’s most probably in the tower,” b.l.o.o.d.y added.

Lin Huang nodded as he noticed the red arrow from the Treasure Card which appeared once they got to the underground city. It pointed at the center of the city. He then flew up and headed towards the direction that the arrow was pointing at. As he flew up in the sky, he observed the buildings in the city. From the colony of buildings, this city should have been a busy one. Although it could not compare to most of the grade footholds, it was similar to most B-grade footholds albeit much smaller. However, he could tell that this unknown civilization was developed for a city that had been founded before the new epoch.

As Lin Huang pa.s.sed through a toy store, he saw movement from a doll that was placed in the broken window. He stopped immediately and floated mid-air, observing the toy store from far away.

“Did you see that?” He asked b.l.o.o.d.y.

“Yes, I did. The doll moved.” b.l.o.o.d.y noded.

“You saw that too. I thought it was an illusion.” Lin Huang changed his direction and teleported outside the toy store.

“Don’t go in yet, let me take a look first,” b.l.o.o.d.y said.

b.l.o.o.d.y then released a couple of Leech Pods that flew into the toy store through the broken window.

“There’s nothing in there.” b.l.o.o.d.y was puzzled.

“Let me go in and take a look.” Lin Huang summoned a couple of flying daggers that surrounded him as he crawled in through the broken window.

The toy store was small at only 60 square meters and consisted of only one floor. Lin Huang stood by the window and could see everything that was in the store. The only place that was covered was the cas.h.i.+er. He walked carefully and looked behind the cas.h.i.+er, but there was nothing there. Lin Huang frowned as he turned around and observed again. Besides all sorts of dolls, there was nothing else in the store, and there was nowhere to hide. If it were not for him and b.l.o.o.d.y who noticed that the doll had moved, he would have thought he had seen an illusion. Since the both of them saw it, Lin Huang did not think so.

He walked back to the window and picked up the doll that he had seen moving earlier. The doll was just a cartoon puppet with a big head and googly eyes. It was only 30 centimeters tall with a pink dress and dark red hair with a yellow flower clip in it. Lin Huang took a good look at the doll, but there was nothing wrong with it. Recalling that the doll had moved its head, he attempted to touch the doll’s head to see if it could be moved or not.

Just when his left hand was reaching for the doll’s head, a female voice was heard.

“What are you trying to do?”

Lin Huang looked around immediately as the flying daggers surrounded him, ready to attack. However, there was nothing around.

“The voice seems to have come from the doll,” b.l.o.o.d.y said.

Lin Huang then looked at the doll in doubt. “Were you the one speaking just now?”

“It wasn’t me!” The doll insisted, but noticing that she had revealed herself again, she struggled her way out of Lin Huang’s hand.

“It’s alive?” Lin Huang thought it was unbelievable as he had never seen such a monster in the monster encyclopedia.

The doll then hid behind a bunch of fluffy dolls as it revealed half of her face, looking at Lin Huang in fear. Lin Huang then squatted down without going closer to her.

“Little fella, are you a local here?” Lin Huang asked.

“Don’t call me little fella. My name’s Duo Er,” the doll corrected him.

“Duo Er, what a nice name!” Lin Huang smiled. “My name’s Lin Xie. Nice meeting you.”

“Lin Xie… You must be a human from the outside world then?” Duo Er asked.

“That’s right.” Lin Huang nodded. “You’ve seen humans from the outside world before?”

“I’ve seen them from far away, but it’s my first time looking at one up-close.” Duo Er was curious about Lin Huang.

“My father doesn’t let me get close to humans from the outside world. He told me that they’re bad people.”

“I’m not a bad person.” Lin Huang was surprised because what Duo Er said proved that she was not the only one in the city, so he attempted to get her to talk more.

“Duo Er, you must be an aboriginal here.”

“Of course.” Duo Er was proud of herself.

“Besides you, there must be many of your tribe in this city?” Lin Huang glanced at the other dolls that were in the store.

“Of course.”

Duo Er noticed that Lin Huang was looking at the other dolls, so she laughed while covering her mouth.

“That’s so funny! You thought all of us look like dolls?”

“Is that not how it is?” Lin Huang was puzzled.

“Only a few of us including myself are dolls while the rest are in different forms. After all, dolls aren’t a great fit in battles. Our father and the rest chose their bodies to be fit for battles.” Duo Er seemed to have her guard down as they chatted, then she walked out from behind the dolls.

“They get to choose their body?” Lin Huang was puzzled.

“I don’t know how to explain to you. Follow me if you’d like to know. I’ll bring you to where our tribe is. The tribe leader and my father will explain to you.” Duo Er thought about it and decided to bring Lin Huang to see her tribe.

“Does your tribe welcome outsiders like me?” Lin Huang raised his eyebrow.

“Usually, they don’t as most of the humans who came were bad people. But I can explain to the tribe leader that you’re not bad,” Duo Was said in all seriousness.

“Will your tribe leader listen to you?” Lin Huang was skeptical.

“Of course, the tribe leader loves me.” Duo Er was sure.

“Loving you and trusting me are two different things…” Lin Huang thought to himself, but he decided to go with Duo Er as he wanted to know more about the ruins.

“Alright, follow me!”

Chapter 1691: Two Flowers Converged Crown, Shocking The Heavens

Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva’s mystical art stumped Ne Zha. Although he had to retreat temporarily since he lost the bet, this defeat wouldn’t put him off forever.

After the temporary retreat, he had cracked his brain, trying to think of a solution.

He wasn’t fighting alone either. On the surface, Ne Zha challenged the Archaic Dipankara Buddha himself, but it had involved the entire orthodox Daoism and Western Pure Lands.

Yang Jian, Taiyi Cultivated Deity, Southern Extremity Longevity Emperor, and other Daoism bigwigs offered their help.

Yan Zhaoge, who was having fun from the commotion, also stepped in.

Hence, Ne Zha soon came to the Western Pure Lands again.

Although Western Pure Lands wanted to kill Ne Zha off immediately, they still had to put up with him in headaches.

The person acting in the place for Archaic Dipankara Buddha was still Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva. Naturally, many people supported her.

After Ne Zha overcame the formation, new problems awaited him.

Both sides exchanged moves, each with their own ingenuity. The contest dragged on for a long time.

Although Ne Zha was a little impatient, he knew that this stalemate wouldn’t be harmful to him and orthodox Daoism.

It appeared that he was stopped by the entrance and couldn’t see the face of Archaic Dipankara Buddha, but the person stopping him was a senior, Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva. Hence, it didn’t hurt Ne Zha’s prestige in any way.

The Western Pure Lands were the Blessed Lands of Amitabha. So, Ne Zha couldn’t break in to confront the Archaic Dipankara Buddha.

However, since the Archaic Dipankara Buddha had been avoided the duel and let the others face the trouble for him, it had become detrimental to his prestige.

Not only Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva but other Buddhists were also involved.

In the long run, it was inevitable to arise dissatisfaction.

Although Ne Zha was domineering, he wasn’t presumptuous. He didn’t involve himself with other Western Pure Lands’ bigwigs but targetted Archaic Dipankara Buddha alone.

Archaic Dipankara Buddha was calm in this matter. He stayed in the Western Pure Lands and didn’t come out, which didn’t trouble him either.

As Ne Zha confronted every day, Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva gradually grew shorts of tactics. The mediation was ineffective in the end. She could only return to the Western Pure Lands and avoid the matter. Another Samantabhadra Bodhisattva took her place instead.

Both sides went back and forth, entangled endlessly, and time pa.s.sed quickly in the process.

During this period, the Immortal Court and the Blessed Lands of the White Lotus had faced each other in several wars.

Although Ne Zha only targeted the Archaic Dipankara Buddha, this incident had caused the Western Pure Lands to be heavily involved with Daoism.

The Blessed Lands of the White Lotus, backed by the demon races, were a.s.saulting the Immortal Court intensely one after the other.

Later on, the Western Pure Lands could only temporarily put Ne Zha’s affairs and deal with the Immortal Court and the Blessed Lands of the White Lotus.

Archaic Dipankara Buddha had rarely appeared. It wasn’t time for him to leave the Western Pure Lands.

The Buddha pretended to be deaf and ignored Ne Zha, who was provoking him by the entrance.

Ne Zha was also stubborn, taking the void outside the Western Pure Lands as his home. So he just stayed there and mocked the Archaic Dipankara Buddha every day.

Yan Zhaoge paid extra care to the news from the outside world while devoting himself to cultivation.

The Immortal realm powerhouses would enter secluded cultivation for many years, even reaching a millennium.

Time flew like flowing water.

Ever since Yan Zhaoge, Feng Yunsheng, and the rest made a deal with the Nine Underworlds in the Land of Tranquil Stream, two centuries had pa.s.sed.

Many generations in the mortal world had pa.s.sed in the fleeting two hundred years.

For Yan Zhaoge and others, it seemed like a short dream.

At the current moment, they had woken up from that dream.

In Zhuluo Royal Reed Heavens within Sky beyond Skies, right at the cave manor behind Broad Creed Mountain…

The young man, who was sitting quietly, opened his eyes and took a deep breath.

The enormous Sky beyond Skies grew torrential in an instant. The qi cycle in the world became static at this moment.

Most mortals in the world felt the qis grew abundant at this moment. This abundance of qi reminded the martial art pract.i.tioners of the Sky beyond Skies they always dreamt for. All of a sudden, the endless spirit qi dispersed.

The magnificent world seemed to have suddenly lost all color.

It seems to be just a moment. The Sky Beyond Skies, which was initially full of talents, suddenly entered its end and dried up.

Not only Sky beyond Skies but also the Eight Extremities World, Vast Ocean World, and many other lower worlds related to Sky beyond Skies had their qis disappeared out of thin air.

Even the entire Zhuluo Royal Reed Heavens was trembling. The Jade Spring Skies within the Zhuluo Royal Reed Heavens and the worlds below were also affected.

In Jade Spring Skies, Tong Xinlin, Guang Tongzi, and other bigwigs were shocked after sensing that the qis in Jade Spring Skies seemed to be drawn away by the outside world.

They hurried out of Jade Spring Skies and were surprised to see that the entire Zhuluo Royal Reed Heavens seemed to have formed a vast and tangible qi vein, circulating endlessly.

All qi were converging towards Sky beyond Skies.

The Sky beyond Skies — Broad Creed Mountain. In the cave manor at the back of the mountain, the young man sitting quietly took a breath.

It gave off an illusion that the frozen river had melted with spring returned to earth. The qi of the Sky beyond Skies was overflowing, circulating stably on its own.

It appeared that the previous scene of spiritual qi disappearing was just everyone’s illusion.

The phenomenon was the same for the rest of the worlds.

Tong Xinlin and others stood outside Jade Spring Skies, in the cosmic void of Zhuluo Royal Reed Heavens. They watched the enormous qi circle in a reverse direction without any stagnation.

It was as if the qi cycle had initially been circling in the opposite direction.

The qi pulled out of Jade Spring Skies had returned to its source and its subordinate worlds. Everything was restored to its original and natural state.

Tong Xinlin and the others looked at each other in dismay and were at a loss for words for a while.

After a long time, Guang Tongzi asked, “This… Could it be that the Heaven Trampling Monarch is going to challenge the Origin Heavenly Tribulation and pursue Grand Heavenly Realm?”

“No, challenging the Origin Heavenly Tribulation and achieving the Three Flowers Converged Crown doesn’t work like this.” Tong Xinlin shook her head, then paused for a while before saying, “This… this is like a Virtual Immortal condensing the Splendor of Qi, but…”

She said this with a hesitant look on her face, “But…”

“But why is there such a big commotion?” The person next to her continued, “Which Virtual Immortal can bear such a momentum…”

Having said that, the man suddenly shut up, and his words stopped abruptly.

Everyone looked at each other. After a while, they all spoke in unison, “Young Heavenly Lord, Yan Zhaoge!”

In the Broad Creed Mountain with Sky beyond Skies, Yan Di was talking with Xu Fei while Yuan Zhengfeng and Xue Chuqing were by their side.

After feeling the pulsation of qi between heaven and earth returning to normal, Yan Di took Xue Chuqing’s palm, and the couple smiled at each other.

“Congratulations.” Xu Fei and Yuan Zhengfeng next to them were also full of smiles, congratulating Yan Di and his wife.

In the cave manor at the back mountain, there was formless darkness that no one could notice as if it came from far away and also seemed to be here all the time.

Feng Yunsheng’s figure appeared in the gloom.

She pushed open the door of the cave manor, and the young man inside was facing her with a smile on his face.

Above the young man’s head, two brilliance gathered.

The first flower contained a remarkable power contending even a universe.

The second flower bore the momentum that shocked even the heavens.

Chapter 2622 Great Circle of Netherpa.s.sage

Yue Xihan was sincerely grateful to the High Priest for his suggestion. If it hadn’t been for him, Long Chen wouldn’t have dared to allow the original devil race to return to the Martial Heaven Continent. Hence, Yue Xihan bowed deeply to the High Priest.

The High Priest shook his head and stopped her. “The original devil race is a n.o.ble immortal race. We are not qualified to receive your bow.”

Long Chen’s heart shook. The High Priest knew even more than he had expected. He actually knew the original devil race’s true origins.

Long Chen then stealthily looked around. Daoist Heavenly Feather and the Music Master were calm, but Qu Jianying and the others were clearly hearing this for the first time.

“Long Chen, that’s about enough. We old fellows should leave, so you can handle the rest.”

The High Priest and the others had only come to the Skysc.r.a.ping World as a formality, something for the others to see. This action would make those still harboring suspicions toward the original devil race finally give up.

After the High Priest and the others left, Long Chen had Xia Chen construct a new formation diagram here. It was a transportation formation that specialized in defense and prevented experts of the Martial Heaven Continent from entering the Skysc.r.a.ping World. Even for Long Chen and the others, they would need a special token and signal to enter.

However, anyone with the specific spiritual fluctuations of the original devil race could pa.s.s through. It was only outsiders that couldn’t.

Once that was arranged, everyone got to work. At this moment, Long Chen asked Evilmoon, “Is that dragon woman’s divine ability very powerful?”

Evilmoon had mentioned that if she used the divine ability, perhaps she could defeat Long Chen but not kill him. Long Chen didn’t like that.

“It’s very powerful. Even if you were at full power and in the Heavens’ Wrath state, it’s difficult to say who would win,” said Evilmoon.

“It’s that amazing?”

“Did you think that she is called the emperor of the black dragon race for nothing? The barbarian blood black dragon’s divine abilities can summon the power of their ancestors, multiplying the power of their bloodline by ten times.”

“Ten times? Are you serious?” Long Chen jumped. What kind of divine ability was so exaggerated?

“Of course. The evil dragon race possesses an innate devouring ability that is just as powerful. When I fought Yun Shang, I had yet to unleash my full power, nor did I have my Ten Thousand Dragon Nest. That’s the only reason he managed to suppress me in one move. Otherwise, would I have ended up in my current situation? Well, a defeat is a defeat. Finding excuses is the act of a weakling. I say this to you so you understand that the strongest aspect of the barbarian blood black dragon race is pure power. However, she has yet to reach the thirteenth rank, so using that kind of divine ability is extremely dangerous to her. Even if her bloodline is pure, she would have to endure an immense backlash. That’s why I scared her off. With the two of us working together, there’s a chance we could kill her, but the price is too great to be worth it. You just have to be careful around her when she advances to the thirteenth rank where she won’t be afraid of the backlash. At that time, you will come to understand the true strength of the dragon race.”

“f.u.c.k, I thought that the sea demon race would collapse after I killed that fellow. But then this dragon woman appeared out of nowhere.” Long Chen was extremely vexed. Powerful enemies kept coming out one after another, giving him a headache.

“I tell you not to reveal your trump cards not because of them. It’s because of those old demons hiding in the depths. You can sweep through your generation, but you don’t know how many living fossils still exist behind their powers. If your display is too strong, would you be able to stop someone on the level of Daoist Heavenly Feather or even the High Priest who decided to throw away all their faces and kill you?” said Evilmoon.

Long Chen shook his head.

If someone on the level of Daoist Heavenly Feather wanted to kill him, they wouldn’t need a second attack. No stratagems could work in front of absolute power.

“Your weakness is all too clear. They can threaten anyone beside you to force you to come out, so it would be best if you were a bit more low-key. Time is your best friend here. Once you advance to Heaven Merging, you will possess the power to protect yourself even against them,” said Evilmoon.

Long Chen nodded. Evilmoon was correct. He was truly in an extremely dangerous state.

If an expert on the old monster cla.s.s wanted to kill him, he wouldn’t survive unless he decided to hide beside the High Priest the entire time.

However, what if someone targeted his allies? Would he be able to endure then? It didn’t matter if it was the original devil race, the Martial Heaven Alliance, the Xuantian Dao Sect, the Heaven Splitting Battle Sect, or the Xuan Beasts. If any of them were attacked, Long Chen wouldn’t be able to ignore them.

The more he thought about it, the more vexed he grew. Putting it as simple as possible, he wasn’t strong enough. Otherwise, who would dare to threaten him?

Currently, he had three divine bones. They were of the earth, water, and wind elements. The water attribute divine bone had been discussed with Meng Qi and the others. They had chosen to send it to Nangong Zuiyue due to a lack of other powerful water cultivators.

The earth element divine bone was shared between Li Qi and Song Mingyuan. Since they were sharing one, whether or not either of them could produce a Spirit Bone would be up to their luck.

The wind element divine bone was naturally given to Tang Wan-er. However, it was only possible to merge with the divine bone after entering the Heaven Merging realm. Because of it, Tang Wan-er had long since grown antsy.

Evilmoon was correct. Advancing to the Heaven Merging realm was important to him, as well as the Dragonblood warriors. Their power would instantly soar at that point.

After thinking through this and arranging things for the original devil race, Long Chen announced his own seclusion, leaving everything else to Guo Ran.

He then became a professional pill eater once more, raising his cultivation base to the full circle of the Netherpa.s.sage realm, only coming out when he was ready to advance to Heaven Merging at any moment.

When he was out, a month had pa.s.sed. At this point, he checked the primal chaos s.p.a.ce and smiled.

The Heavenly Qilin Demon Trees had been nourished by the corpses of the demonic beasts and grown twice as tall. Also, their life energy was several times greater than before, which gave him a bit more confidence for his next tribulation.

“Boss, you came out! Something major has happened!” Guo Ran immediately came running over when Long Chen came out of seclusion.
