Chapter 1694: Deterrent Empty City Strategy

Yan Zhaoge and his party met Ne Zha and Taiyi Cultivated Deity outside the Western Pure Lands.

“Thank you, fellow Daoists, for coming here to support me. I will never forget this favor.” Ne Zha first thanked Yan Zhaoge and others.

“Don’t mention it. Unfortunately, the duel is happening in the Western Pure Lands. Archaic Dipankara Buddha is already quite strong, but now he has a geographical advantage. I’m afraid things will be difficult,” said Yan Zhaoge.

“Hey, why should I be afraid of him? It’s just that Sea Suppressing Pearl is tricky,” sneered Ne Zha.

Yan Zhaoge nodded and looked at Taiyi Cultivated Deity again, “I heard that Brother Yang will come as well?”

Taiyi Cultivated Deity smiled and replied, “Yang Jian said he would come after finis.h.i.+ng the matters at hand. So he should be reaching soon.”

The Cultivated Deity then asked again, “Are the three of you staying outside or going in with my disciple?”

“My father and I shall head in to watch the duel with Yunsheng staying outside,” replied Yan Zhaoge.

Feng Yunsheng on the side nodded.

Since Yang Jian would come, she would enter the Western Pure Lands at that time, so she stayed outside to wait.

After all, when she was outside the Western Pure Lands, her deterrence was greater on the other factions.

As for Suo Mingzhang, he didn’t come and remained in the Tai’an Royal Cliff Heavens.

His stay would ensure that Daoism’s universe wouldn’t be unguarded with other factions taking advantage of the situation and stirring up trouble.

“I heard from Senior Brother Antarctica and Yang Jian that you could join forces with your companions to manifest the Great Sage Equalling Heavens’ true form. I wonder if your companions can come along?” Taiyi Cultivated Deity asked again.

Yan Zhaoge smiled, “Cultivated Deity, you can rest a.s.sured with that.”

In fact, both Xu Fei and Pan Pan did not come. Instead, they all stayed in Sky beyond Skies.

Only Yan Zhaoge’s North Ocean Clone came here with the Ru Yi Golden Cudgel.

About 300 years ago during the battle for the Immortal Extermination Formation, the three Golden Body of the Great Sage merged into one, manifesting the true form of the Great Sage Equalling Heavens. They finally merged with the Earthly Essence Stone, which expended most of their energies.

To this day, although the Xu Fei could manifest the Golden Body of the Great Sage independently, they could hardly manifest the Great Sage Equalling Heavens’ true form again, even with the help of the Earthly Essence Stone. They still needed time to recuperate from the exhaustion.

Everyone could guess that the Golden Body of the Great Sage would consume a lot of energy with a long time of recovery required as per usage.

Though, it was hard to figure out the details.

Only Yan Zhaoge’s group had the exact figures in grasp. The onlookers couldn’t figure it out even though 300 years had pa.s.sed since then. Hence, everyone was careful with it.

After all, even without combining the Earthly Essence Stone, it was a terrifying feat having the three Golden Body of the Great Sage manifesting the Great Sage Equalling Heavens’ true form as a whole. Even Dao Monarch Lu Ya was beaten up in an embarra.s.sing flee.

Xu Fei and Pan Pan stayed in Sky beyond Skies. They wouldn’t simply leave and wouldn’t show up easily.

As long as the other forces weren’t sure if the trio was with Yan Zhaoge, they had to be wary and be on guard at all times.

Yan Zhaoge’s empty city strategy [1] was a great deterrence.

Of course, there was no need to explain in detail to the Taiyi Cultivated Deity.

It wasn’t because of the lack of trust, but it was better off having lesser people know about this.

“If that’s the case, that’s great. Then, Brother Southern Extremity and I shall stay outside to make sure that everything is safe.” Taiyi Cultivated Deity said with a smile, “Dao Monarch Lu Ya should have made his full preparation. I’m worried that the demon races will cause us trouble.”

Yan Zhaoge nodded when he heard the remarks.

During the years when he was in seclusion, Ne Zha stayed and mocked them at the entrance with Archaic Dipankara Buddha acting deaf to it. As time pa.s.sed by, many note-worthy changes took place.

Firstly, one of the Twelve Devilish G.o.ds, Devil of Fire among the 6 Extinct Devils, had successfully been reborn!

Following the rebirth of Devil of Aged Metal, after the authority of Supreme and Faceless was reclaimed by Nine Underworlds, a new generation of fire devil also returned to Nine Underworlds.

The devils seemed to be growing in momentum.

But what Yan Zhaoge cared about regarding the rebirth of Devil of Fire was the body used during the reincarnation came from the demon races.

Generally speaking, the success rate for the rebirth of the Great Devil wasn’t 100%.

A few epochs had pa.s.sed. Strictly speaking, it was natural that failure occupied the majority.

With the devil being the public enemy, even if the Great Devil found a suitable body, he would be eliminated soon.

At the moment the devil was reborn, their cultivation was low. Therefore, it was difficult to escape the situation and return to the Nine Underworlds to cultivate.

Although it was a bit cruel, most of the bodies suitable for Great Devils were executed as soon as possible since ancient times.

There were very few exceptions like Chen Xuanzong, Chu Lili, Ying Yuzhen, and others.

But this time, the rebirth of Devil of Fire seemed to be relatively easy.

“Nine Underworlds helped the demon races faction to defile the Green Lotus Treasured Flag and captured Sakyamuni Sarira in exchange for the return of the Devil of Fire.” Yan Di said, “But Dao Monarch Lu Ya must have gotten what he wanted.”

Although Dao Monarch Lu Ya was secretly helping Nine Underworlds, he must have asked for benefits since he had the higher ground to take advantage of the devils.

The purpose of helping the Nine Underworlds was to facilitate the harvesting process. Dao Monarch Lu Ya wouldn’t want the Nine Underworlds to flourish either.

This was also basically the common idea that ​​Archaic Dipankara Buddha, Bhikkhu Xuan Du, and others shared.

While supporting the Nine Underworlds, they had also arranged their plans so that they could restrain the Nine Underworlds for their profits when the opportunity came in the future.

Yan Zhaoge could easily guess that the matter of the Devil of Fire returning to Nine Underworlds must have secrets hidden behind it.

He even wondered if Dao Monarch Lu Ya had control of the new generation of Devil of Fire.

Since Dao Monarch Lu Ya was born as the Earlier Heaven Essence of Departed Fire, he had his way to take advantage of the situation after careful planning.

Of course, his actions could hide from others, but not from Origin Heart Devil. Even if he succeeded in cheating the Origin Heart Devil, he certainly couldn’t hide his trace from the Vast Freedom Heavenly Devil.

Since Nine Underworlds knew about it, the biggest possibility was that they chose to keep one eye closed on that matter.

The Nine Underworlds devils were well aware of the plans of Dao Monarch Lu Ya, Archaic Dipankara Buddha, and others.

Just as the other factions secretly condone the Nine Underworlds, the Nine Underworlds would choose to endure it silently even if they were aware of their actions.

The matter involved compromise and a great tacit understanding.

Everyone was waiting for the final decisive moment.

In the case of Devil of Fire, as far as Nine Underworlds was concerned, the first thing to do was to let the reborn Devil of Fire return to Nine Underworlds. Everything else would come second.

Also, this was related to the deal where Dao Monarch Lu Ya had exchanged for the Kindling Devil Spirit from Daoism’s Jade Illusory Glazed Lamp with Qin of f.u.xi. Yan Zhaoge and others could naturally infer that Dao Monarch Lu Ya should have completed his plan in seizing profit from the devils.

In this way, he should be as prepared as Archaic Dipankara Buddha and Bhikkhu Xuan Du.

“Compared to the demon races, the Western Pure Lands lost the Green Lotus Treasured Flag and failed to acquire the Sakyamuni Sarira. I’m afraid the Archaic Dipankara Buddha is a little more anxious than his compet.i.tors.” Yan Zhaoge thought for a while and gave his remarks to Taiyi Cultivated Deity.

Taiyi Cultivated Deity stroked his beard and nodded lightly.

[1] The strategy involves using reverse psychology (and luck) to deceive the enemy into thinking that an empty location is full of traps and ambushes and therefore induce the enemy to retreat. link

Chapter 1692: Ruining the Atmosphere

After condensing the first Splendor of Soul, Yan Zhaoge gathered the Splendor of Qi on the top of his head. The two flowers gathered atop his head, signifying his attainment into Grand Virtual Realm.

He smiled at Feng Yunsheng and blinked.

“You’re high-spirited.” Feng Yunsheng said with a smile.

“I’m pumped up right now.” Yan Zhaoge had the two flowers on his head slowly receding and retracted them back into his Spirit Yin Centre.

He sat on the woven cattail and didn’t move. Instead, he spread his arms to both sides and invited Feng Yunsheng for a hug with a smile on his face, “Young lady, it’s time for you to pay off your debts.”

“You’re always so playful.” Feng Yunsheng wasn’t embarra.s.sed. She sat down in Yan Zhaoge’s embrace with her back against his chest.

Yan Zhaoge clasped his arms tightly and whispered in her ear, “I kid you not, this is a serious matter.”

“Whatever.” Feng Yunsheng finally couldn’t take it anymore and couldn’t help shrinking her neck. Soon, she relaxed again, leaning on Yan Zhaoge’s shoulder.

Looking at her slightly red ears, Yan Zhaoge couldn’t help but gently nibble the pink and round earlobe with his lips.

The woman in his embrace couldn’t help but soften up a bit.

However, Yan Zhaoge had stopped teasing her.

He has just ended his seclusion with his cultivation progressed further. People of the same sect, especially those from the Broad Creed Mountain, would visit him to congratulate him.

At the current moment, Yan Di and the rest had tacitly reserved some time for the couple to talk among themselves first before they come over.

Still, Yan Zhaoge put Feng Yunsheng in his embrace and didn’t let her go. Instead, he just smiled and said, “Although we’ve been a married couple for a long time, we haven’t gone through the ceremony and crossed the chast.i.ty line yet.”

Feng Yunsheng smiled, “So, it’s not too late for you to back out from the marriage.”

“Silly girl.” Yan Zhaoge said maliciously, “If I want to go back on my promise, then I will have my time on your first already. I must have my fun first before abandoning you, right? But, you know I haven’t crossed the line yet, how can I give up so easily?”

“Yeah, yeah, you’re sly as a fox. Why would you do something that doesn’t benefit you?” Feng Yunsheng leaned lazily against Yan Zhaoge’s arms.

“I’ve been looking forward to the moment when I lift my bride’s blusher veil with my very own hands.” Yan Zhaoge took off his playful mask. He hugged her and said softly, “I haven’t had that experience yet. I wonder how it feels.”

Feng Yunsheng didn’t mind Yan Zhaoge’s tease.

As he suddenly talked earnestly, her ears turned even redder, and she murmured, “I would also like to find out…”

The couple stopped chatting and sat quietly while embracing each other. Although they were silent, they felt their heart connected.

After a while, Yan Zhaoge sighed suddenly, “The eyesores are here.”

Although he still wanted to hold Feng Yunsheng and not let go, Feng Yunsheng couldn’t sit still and stand up from Yan Zhaoge’s arms.

Then, several figures appeared at the entrance of the cave manor. It was Yan Di, Xue Chuqing, Xu Fei, Yuan Zhengfeng and the rests.

“Huh, did we ruin the atmosphere?” Yuan Zhengfeng said with a smile as soon as he came.

Yan Zhaoge didn’t avoid the group as he threw his remarks. They had all heard it.

“But, we still have to come. There are some important things that I need to talk to you about first.” The old master said, “It will soon be the decisive battle between our Daoism’s Tri-Buddhism Platforms Great Divinity and Western Pure Lands’ Archaic Dipankara Buddha.”

“Oh? So, did the Archaic Dipankara Buddha accept the challenge of Tri-Buddhism Platforms Great Divinity?” Yan Zhaoge raised his eyebrows.

The Archaic Dipankara Buddha didn’t accept the duel for nearly two hundred years despite how Ne Zha hara.s.sed at the entrance.

He didn’t accept Ne Zha’s challenge, and Ne Zha couldn’t break in the Buddhist kingdom of Western Pure Lands to s.n.a.t.c.h him out and force him to fight.

Two hundred years was undoubtedly a long time for the mortal world.

But for the powerhouses like Archaic Dipankara Buddha and Ne Zha, it was momentary.

More often than not, their secluded cultivation was longer than that.

Archaic Dipankara Buddha lived in seclusion in the Western Pure Lands, staying behind the scenes and rarely leaving the Blessed Lands.

The current situation wasn’t pleasing to their reputation, but it limited their actual strength. At best, other Buddhist Bhantes in Western Pure Lands had some doubts about him, but at present, Archaic Dipankara Buddha still held his position firmly.

Although Yan Zhaoge was in seclusion, the people from Broad Creed Mountain would pa.s.s the latest intelligence to him at regular intervals.

This time, although Yan Zhaoge didn’t isolate himself from the outside world, he had to be fully focused in the process of condensing the Splendor of Qi. Hence, his seclusion was slightly longer. With that, Feng Yunsheng, Yan Di, and others were out of touch with him.

He had limited knowledge about the latest developments in the outside world.

At this moment, Archaic Dipankara Buddha suddenly changed his stance and accepted Ne Zha’s duel challenge. So naturally, it had arisen Yan Zhaoge’s curiosity for a reason.

Feng Yunsheng had calmed down. She nodded and answered his question, “Daoist Ne Zha had killed Bhante Baixiong.”

“Um…” Yan Zhaoge touched his chin.

Bhante Baixiong was a proud disciple of the Archaic Dipankara Buddha.

Archaic Dipankara Buddha often sent him for errands in his shoe.

It stood to reason that since Ne Zha had been hara.s.sing at the entrance, Bhante Baixiong should have minimized his frequency in going out.

Ne Zha wouldn’t trouble the others, but the others might disturb him.

Although Yan Zhaoge still didn’t know how Bhante Baixiong confronted Ne Zha’s Fire-tipped Spear and perished, this outcome had undoubtedly change the situation.

No matter what the Archaic Dipankara Buddha thought, it was difficult to sit still this time.

Previously, the grievances between Archaic Dipankara Buddha and Ne Zha were in his favor. He had nothing to lose, but Ne Zha had suffered the bitter end. Hence, Ne Zha put the matter to the heart while he just ignored it.

Since his disciple, Bhante Baixiong, had died in the hands of Ne Zha, his fame and prestige would be further damaged.

The situation of Bhante Baixiong and Li Jing wasn’t the same. The relations.h.i.+p between Li Jing and Ne Zha was a mess. Worse still, they were father and son. Therefore, the conflict between the two could be regarded as a family affair.

If the Archaic Dipankara Buddha came forward for Li Jing because of Ne Zha murdering his father, then he who had incited the whole ordeal had to take responsibility.

Hence, the party involved had chosen to forget this matter, except for Ne Zha.

But now that Bhante Baixiong was dead in the hands of Ne Zha, the Archaic Dipankara Buddha was further forced to accept the challenge.

“It would be good if they broke into a fight.” Yan Zhaoge said thoughtfully, “Archaic Dipankara Buddha has incomplete Sea Suppressing Pearls. With the strength of Tri-Buddhism Platforms Great Divinity, he has a good chance to win. Even if he loses, his life probably won’t be endangered. Archaic Dipankara Buddha’s side will suffer no matter whether they win or lose.”

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 1693: Thick Skinned

Archaic Dipankara Buddha would never want to partic.i.p.ate in the duel.

Perhaps he would be happy to have a master like Ne Zha eliminated from orthodox Daoism, but he never intended to fight Ne Zha in a duel on his own.

After all, Ne Zha was substantial in combat strength and hard to contend with.

The point was that even if he defeated Ne Zha, the gains outweigh the losses.

But if Archaic Dipankara Buddha was seriously injured in the match against Ne Zha, it might affect the future compet.i.tion with the Nine Underworlds.

As early as the early Middle era, Archaic Dipankara Buddha waited for this compet.i.tion to attain Dao Realm for a long time.

If he were to miss it, it would be frustrating. It was worrying about expecting the next opportunity.

The battle of the Immortal Extermination Formation was essential, and he had to be involved.

However, Ne Zha’s challenge would divert his focus and cause more trouble instead.

As far as orthodox Daoism was concerned, they would be happy to hinder the Archaic Dipankara Buddha in any way. However, Yan Zhaoge thought he wouldn’t be provoked, given his thick-skinned nature.

“Beware of any deceit. They may have a secret plan behind it,” said Yan Zhaoge.

“So as soon as you exited the seclusion, we came to inform you. Let’s discuss it together.” Xue Chuqing smiled, “Luckily, you attained progress before the start of this matter, and you won’t miss it.”

Yan Zhaoge glanced at Feng Yunsheng and sighed, “I have a sudden bad hunch.”

“Let’s focus on the matter of Brother Ne Zha first.” Feng Yunsheng smiled at him and said, “As you said, it doesn’t simple as Archaic Dipankara Buddha accepts the duel.”

Yan Zhaoge glanced at her in annoyance and said, “Since we’re short of time, let’s talk in our way.”

The duel involving Grand Heavenly Realm powerhouse, especially the best among them, was undoubtedly a grand event. Moreover, it would provide an excellent reference for others.

Yan Zhaoge’s group would want to miss spectating it even aside from supporting Ne Zha.

For a Grand Virtual Immortal, the opportunity to watch a Grand Heavenly Realm battle was hard to come by.

Although Xue Chuqing and Yuan Zhengfeng longed for it, they couldn’t watch it despite their enthusiasm. Instead, they could wait for the capable spectators to come back and talk about it.

Although Yan Zhaoge, Yan Di, and Xu Fei weren’t at Grand Heavenly Realm, they could read the battle.

Xu Fei, as the current sect leader, had to stay. Zhuluo Royal Reed Heavens and Sky beyond Skies needed a master to safeguard the place.

So, Yan Zhaoge went out of Sky beyond Skies with Feng Yunsheng and Yan Di in the end. The group left the Zhuluo Royal Reed Heavens into the endless void.

Ne Zha had a word in advance when he issued the letter of challenge where the Archaic Dipankara Buddha would choose the place for the duel.

As the Archaic Dipankara Buddha accepted the challenge, he had a say on the location.

Of course, he was also quite shameless, honest, and rude. He chose the Western Pure Lands as the arena, only to see if Ne Zha dared to come.

While the Archaic Dipankara Buddha had the upper hand at his home base, it also curbed Daoism from backing up Ne Zha.

Ne Zha agreed to the proposal readily, but Yan Zhaoge and others had to think further.

“The good news is that Amitabha will not intervene, seeing how thing goes.”

Otherwise, it would be inevitable to have the Immortal Extermination Formation summoned in the Western Pure Lands and evolve into a full-blown war.

“But, there is too much bad news already.” Yan Zhaoge spread out his hands, “I guess there is no problem for a one-on-one duel. If he wins, things will be easy. But, things will get complicated if he wins, even if we partic.i.p.ate and help. They have an enormous geographical advantage.”

He smiled. “If I enter the Western Pure Lands, I guess Buddhism will think about killing me along with Tri-Buddhism Platforms Great Divinity within directly.”

“You have two flowers converged, the Splendor of Qi and Soul now. It won’t be easy if they want to trap you in that place. Also, you aren’t going alone.” Feng Yunsheng shook her head and said, “However, it’s difficult for me to ambush the opponents like usual if I enter the Western Pure Lands.”

The Western Pure Lands’ owner was Amitabha, the orthodox Buddhism with the Buddha light shone through the land of hundreds of millions. So it was difficult for Feng Yunsheng to hide her tracks.

Despite so, she wasn’t discouraged. With her current cultivation, even if she didn’t launch a sneak attack and a.s.sa.s.sination but instead utilized an upright frontal attack, she was still at the elite level.

Her threat level had decreased back to her original combat prowess.

“It’s a pity that we can’t take the Green Lotus Treasured Flag with us this time. Amitabha has given the flag to Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva before. If we are so intrusive in the Western Pure Lands and use the Green Lotus Treasured Flag against the Buddhist masters, we’re just forcing the old Amitabha to take action.”

Yan Zhaoge said regretfully, “He doesn’t have to trouble us, just take away the flag, and the matter is over.”

“If the Green Lotus Treasured Flag can be used, then the Tri-Buddhism Platforms Great Divinity will be invincible against the Archaic Dipankara Buddha.” Yan Di added, “Even if the duel happens in a neutral zone but not in Western Pure Lands, we will be provoking Amitabha once we use the Green Lotus Treasured Flag to fight against Buddhist masters; other than Mahamayuri.”

“Indeed.” After thinking about it, Yan Zhaoge asked, “Is Brother Yang coming this time?”

“He said he will come.” Feng Yunsheng replied.

Yan Zhaoge gently rubbed his temples, “Is that so…”

After thinking for a moment, he said, “At that time, we shall count the number of people going in. Of course, we can’t all go in. Not only do we need people to stay outside to respond, but we also need to be vigilant against demon races and the Nine Underworlds.”

The Immortal Court and the Blessed Lands of the White Lotus were now at war.

While orthodox Daoism restrained the Western Pure Lands, the demon races faction was in a comfortable spot. Of course, the Blessed Lands of the White Lotus took the opportunity to attack the Immortal Court.

Of course, the demon race won’t go off to attack Immortal Court in person.

That was equivalent to forcing Daoism to temporarily let Buddhism go, stop Ne Zha’s challenge, and give Buddhism a chance to come back.

Although Yan Zhaoge and others had a deep grudge with the Immortal Court heretics, it wasn’t the time to focus on them yet, unless it was the opportunity to kill off the Immeasurable Heavenly Lord.

If the Immeasurable Heavenly Lord survived and the Immortal Court destroyed, the Heavenly Lord was simply unattached. The Immortal Extermination Formation could hardly restrain him.

Certainly, Daoism was pleased to see the Blessed Lands of The White Lotus bullying the Immortal Court.

But right now, it was another matter if the Immortal Court was defeated.

Yan Zhaoge and the others would still want to confront the Immortal Court in person on who was righteous and heretics after they attained the adequate strength to do so.

Since Archaic Dipankara Buddha occupied the home ground this time, Yan Zhaoge and others became quite cautious about it, but they weren’t too worried.

After all, there were still demon races out there eyeing the Western Pure Lands. They wouldn’t want to fight to the death with orthodox Daoism.

However, the group couldn’t take this matter lightly. G.o.d knows if Buddhism and demon races would suddenly have a truce and plot on Daoism together.

The group discussed while traveling and gradually approached the Western Pure Lands.
