Chapter 145: Silence in all Directions (1)
During the Desolate Era, as the Dark Crow, Li Qiye was the guide for the Alchemist God. They experienced mortal dangers, traversed the nine heavens and ten earths, walked throughout the Nine Worlds, invaded the Forbidden Burial Grounds, and penetrated the Ancient Earth together. Along the way, they tasted all type of grasses and refined countless pills. In the end, they established the rules for the human race’s alchemy dao, and specified the methods to refine pills as well as the numerous standards to become an alchemist…
Since the old ages until now, there was a saying: “if the Alchemy God didn’t exist, then there wouldn’t be an alchemy dao for the human race, and there would also be no standards for alchemists across all the races!”
One could say that the Alchemy God not only created the alchemy dao’s foundation for the human race, but also the foundation for all existences.
Of course, the world only knew about the Alchemy God and the Alchemy God’s Grand Canon, but no one knew about Li Qiye or the Dark Crow behind him!
Later on, regarding the pill refining dao of the Alchemy God or his inheritance, only Li Qiye knew. The essences of Alchemy God’s skill was not passed down, the world only had the Alchemy God’s Grand Canon. This was only a guideline for pill refinement and a complete system for alchemist. Of course, these things would serve as a guideline for alchemists later on.
The reality was that the true essences of the Alchemist God were lost, and Li Qiye knew that this brat did it on purpose. What was even more frustrating was that there was a problem when he erased his memories, so later on he couldn’t find the memories regarding the Alchemy God’s Grand Canon.
But Li Qiye knew that was still some hope, and it was this frog, this is the Wan Heavenly Cauldron they raised that year! The Alchemy God’s Grand Canon was sealed inside this frog.
At that time, this lunatic Alchemy God once jested that this frog was his essence, no one would expect that this frog would be his only handed-down teachings and his dao orthodoxy! But this frog unexpected escaped, so this joke was no longer true later on.
Later on, Li Qiye was always trying to find this Wan Heavenly Cauldron to find the Alchemy God’s Grand Canon, but unfortunately he couldn’t find it. But in this life, regaining his body, Li Qiye finally found the cauldron as well as the Alchemy God’s Grand Canon.
Seeing this frog shaped cauldron, Li Qiye smiled and said:
“Crazy alchemy brat, I’m afraid in this life, I will have to outshine your brilliance.”
Having said this, he bursted out in laughters. But after a while, behind his smile was a sense of disconsolation and sadness.
It was a memorable past during his millions years of ups and downs amidst the blood and killing. Since the Desolate Era till now, he had been chased and even his root was cut, but he managed to reverse this situation and plotted against the world. It was either his enemies dying or him dying. During the Ancient Ming Era, there was even more blood in the sky. When he massacred the gods, and annihilated the immortals – to him, this was an extremely difficult era, all the way to the Emperors Era. This was the era when he counterattacked against the Heaven Demon Grotto, an era with many great changes. He developed many wise sages, and even Immortal Emperors. When he ran out of effort, and ran out of preparations, that would be the day when he breakthrough to the Heaven Demon Grotto!
No matter how difficult the road was, whether it was slaughtering and vanquishing gods and devils or his plan to counterattack against the Heaven Demon Grotto along with numerous foul winds and bloody reigns during countless military campaigns, his memories regarding the era of the Alchemy God was the most pure. It was an era of learning, an era of pill refinement and herb testing. At that time, it was a search for the dan refinement path, to form a foundation for the human race as well as the Nine Worlds.
Finally, Li Qiye gently sighed, and calmed his thoughts. He picked up the frog, and shouted:
As the frog was falling down, it turned into a huge cauldron in the shape of a squatting frog. It opened its mouth, and spewed out the heaven’s energy.
Feeling the bashing of the heat in front causing Li Qiye to close his eyes. He smelled the medicinal fragrances of the drugs inside the Heavenly Cauldron, and said:
“Wan Heavenly Cauldron, truly worthy of being the best cauldron since the start of time, worthy of my time spent to chase you in all the Nine Worlds, worthy of all the consumptions of great treasures of the world. With this cauldron in my hands, any heaven rebelling or fate changing pills would be too simple.”
The world had never heard of this Wan Heavenly Cauldron. In contemporary time, only Li Qiye knew all of the mysteries of this Heavenly Cauldron.
This cauldron went beyond simple alchemy refinement. It fused with the Alchemy God’s Grand Canon, so it had heaven frightening power, able to rebel against the heaven and change fates!
Wan Heavenly Cauldron, in Li Qiye’s eyes, was the supreme furnace throughout the ages! It was different from other Heavenly Cauldrons. Other cauldrons was born from nature, and essentially couldn’t move. It could only stay in one place to swallow the world’s essences to cultivate its fire.
But this Wan Heavenly Cauldron, it could move by itself like a frog, capable of traversing this entire world. It could even find different flames to eat, along with spirit pills and alchemy grasses. The longer it lived, the more valuable things it would have eaten. Normal flames and ordinary spirit pills were not worthy in its eyes!
This is why its medicinal treasure along and flames were peerless! It was also extremely fast. No one was able to catch it before. Even if they saw it, they didn’t pay any attention since it was only an ordinary frog.
Finally, Li Qiye withdrawn the frog, and slumped down to the ground and started to cultivate.
Many sects finally got the news of the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect’s triumphant return. In a short time, there were howlings and commotions everywhere between these great sects and secret schools. Losing everything in this trip to the Evil Infested Ridge to many of these great powers was an extreme disgrace.
Inside the Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom among an ancient temple, the Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan surrounded by his azure aura was reporting the events to an expert regarding the trip. And this expert sitting up high was a Heavenly King, renowned in all Eight Desolaces. His royal aura chilled the souls of others, even an Ancient Saint would lose his colors from fear.
“Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect–”
The royal expert sitting up high with his voice carry tension and godliness began to speak:
“An insect dying for a hundred years yet still not completely vanquished! Immortal Emperor Min Ren is worthy of being the founder to the Emperors Era! Declined for such a long time yet they still have some abilities.”
The Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan below didn’t say anything, only listened quietly.
“Don’t worry, no need to rush getting even with the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect!”
The royal expert up high finally said:
“We should wait, let other people ignite the first fire, we just need to watch. Even though you didn’t get the godly treasure, it is not a big deal, our ancient kingdom does not lack treasures! Remain calm and go cultivate. In this era, if you carry the Heaven’s Will, our ancient kingdom will have our third Immortal Emperor.”
Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan sounded in agreement, and eventually left.
“My son, Hao—”
Inside the Southern Heavenly Kingdom, an old man bellowed and almost fainted after receiving the news, even when he was a master.
In the end, this old man was ready to blow up, and bitterly said:
“If we don’t obtain our vengeance, then our Nan Tian Clan will cease to be humans!”
This old man went into the royal city of the Nan Tian Kingdom, to find the royal experts and beseech them to maneuver the troops to take revenge for his son, Nan Tian Hao, and destroy the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect.
To his request, the high above royal expert replied:
“The Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect is within the border of the Heavenly Jewel Sect, they do not like us moving troops into their borders! Plus, the ancestor of the Heavenly God Sect is still alive, we cannot easily offend the Heavenly God Sect. I will send messengers to contact the Heavenly God Sect. As for the killer of little Hao, I will not let it go. Wait until my royal son comes out from his cultivation, I will tell him to go and take revenge for little Hao.”
Even though the old man was not satisfied with the royal expert’s ruling, but he could only accept it.
Meanwhile, inside the Heavenly Jewel Kingdom. The Mortal King heard the report from Sheng Tian Dao as he was sitting high in his dragon throne. At this moment, his expression sank, and finally spoke:
“Emperor’s possession! Emperor’s possession again!”
That year, when the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect used the Emperor’s will to suppress him, it was an unbearable humble moment to a royal expert such as him. But he couldn’t do anything. Even someone as powerful was him couldn’t guarantee to easily deal with an Emperor’s possession, unless there was no other choice.”
“The ancestor still has not come into being, we will just have to subdue our anger for a little longer!”
In the end, the Mortal King finally said:
“This trip was fruitful, to be able to go together with Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan, it is a good thing. You don’t have to worry about the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect for now, I will send ambassadors to the Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom, to see if we can form an alliance with them! If the alliance is successful, with them as our backing, we will have nothing to be afraid of in the Grand Middle Territory! Hmph, even the Nine Saint Demon Gate wanting to protect the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect, they would only be seeking death!”
As his words came out, the killing intent in his eyes soared..
In the Jiang Zuo Clan, a person miserably shrieked. After hearing the news, the Jiang Zuo Clan was
Shrouded by sadness.
The Jiang Zuo Clan not only lost Jiang Zuo Hou, but also the ferocious Jiang Zuo Tieyi along with one thousand elites. To the clan, this loss was too heavy, especially when their young generation was destroyed, they would have a hard time recovering.
“Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect, one day, our Jiang Zuo Clan will slaughter you!”
Finally, the clan master of the Jiang Zuo Clan bitterly exclaimed.
To the Jiang Zuo Clan, this was not only animosity, but also a generational feud! Back in those days, their Virtuous Monarch Jiang Zuo suffered a crushing defeat to the hand of Immortal Emperor Min Ren, and was not entitled to host the Heaven’s Will.
