Chapter 195: Mysterious Dead Person (1)
“Who are you?”
When Li Shuangyan’s group was resting on the ground, there was a voice from the sky suddenly descending down and it startled all of them into jumping up.
At this point, they noticed that the wooden coffin hanging on the precipice had been opened with a person sitting inside.
It was a man dressed in armor sitting in the wooden coffin. The armor was already dull without any brilliance. The more frightening part was that the chest piece of the armor was pierced through. Not just the armor, but even the man’s chest was penetrated. From the broken trace of the wound, no one would even dare imagine how terrible this attack was!
But this puncture did not affected his presence. The man was handsome and tall with eyes like the swords and facial feature as bright as the moon. One could tell that he was absolutely an attractive man that year!
Even though the man did not opened his eyes, but he could still see Li Qiye. At least others got that feeling.
Seeing such a man left the group of Li Shuangyan in a daze for a while. When the Martial God referred to him as predecessor, they assumed that the person inside the wooden coffin would be an ancient old man, not just a young man!
“In the Bamboo Forest, an arrow that pierces the heaven! In the high sky, a war to slaughter the heaven! One feathered arrow as the sign of trust, ten thousand saints all obey!” Li Qiye facing the man and smilingly spoke.
(TN1: I do believe that “an arrow that pierces the heaven” is the person’s name (Jian Jingxian), and that he is from the Bamboo forest. But without further context, I simply can’t tell)
The moment Li Qiye finished speaking, the man inside the wooden coffin immediately opened his eyes and shined his bloody lights to stare at Li Qiye!
In a blink of an eye, everyone became paralyzed even though this bloody light did not fall on their bodies, but they still felt that they were powerless to resist like ants beneath the foot of a giant elephant!
Only Li Qiye stood quietly and shouldered the man’s gaze. While watching the man, he gently sighed and said: “Mourning Cloud Mountain, we did not enter!”
The man stared at Li Qiye for a long time, a very long time without speaking. As time passed by, he finally closed his eyes and went back inside his wooden coffin and closed it without making any noise.
Li Qiye glanced at the wooden coffin and finally lamented once. Such an ancient memory, yet this person was still as stubborn as an ox!
It took a while before the group of Li Shuangyan’s wits returned. They didn’t know what was going on and simply didn’t understand Li Qiye’s words!
“Who is he?” Finally, Chen Baojiao couldn’t suppress the curiosity in her heart and whispered to ask Li Qiye.
Li Qiye bitterly smiled and shook his head while saying: “A stubborn guy! Always like this for millions of years, just like a pebble in the toilet, hard and smelly!”
Everyone were horrified by Li Qiye’s words. Even the Martial God and Lion Monarch were dreary of this person yet their young noble made this assessment about him. What if this person blew up and kill all of them, wouldn’t it be as easy as crushing an ant?
They then glanced over at the wooden coffin on the precipice but it did not made any noise which finally made them heaved a sigh of relief.
In fact, everyone was curious about why the man after listening to words that resembled poetry but weren’t poetry earlier and decided to help them? To be more exact, he decided to help their young noble!
However, since Li Qiye didn’t reveal it, they also didn’t dare to ask. The story inside was not something that they could imagine.
“The proceeds of this time go to Baojiao.” Li Qiye took out the Tyrannical Immortal Saber and the Heaven Traversing Eight Saber technique and gave them to Chen Baojiao.
“For, for me?” Chen Baojiao couldn’t help but became a bit stunned. These two items were obtained by everyone risking their lives, so she didn’t expect for them to both go to her.
“These two things could be said to have been crafted just for your Tyrannical Valley Immortal Spring Physique. If it wasn’t for your physique, I wouldn’t have went to take these two items. In the future, you will understand just how appropriate they are for you.” Li Qiye nodded his head and said.
While hugging these two items, Chen Baojiao was tongue-tied for a long time. She was already Li Qiye’s maid. She wouldn’t ask for more than just cultivating a supreme physique, but today Li Qiye bestowed two supreme treasure to her. In this moment, her nose became stuffy as her heart became warm. There were many heavenly words and countless languages, but she couldn’t express them in this moment while lost in her emotions.
Finally, Li Qiye told everyone: “Shuangyan got the formation along with the Heavenly Plate, grandpa Shi also got the Mysterious Ancient Pagoda! This time everyone contributed, but since everyone had gotten something, so these two items will go to Baojiao.”
Li Shuangyan did not say anything. She never had any objections to any of her young noble’s arrangements.
Shi Gangdang was even more deferential as he bowed towards Li Qiye and added: “Young Noble bestowed this pagoda to me, I do not dare to ask for more.” In fact, he was very happy for this young miss. This clearly showed that his young miss had a position in Li Qiye’s mind.
“This time, Niu Fen contributed greatly. You don’t need any treasure, I will give you two solutions.” Li Qiye told Niu Fan.
Having heard Li Qiye, Niu Fen immediately became crazily excited and bowed all the way down to the ground, and ecstatically replied: “Young Noble bestowing two solutions is much more precious than supreme treasure.” To him, no treasures could compare to the eighteen solutions!
While Li Qiye was swindling the Earth Immortals in the Heavenly Ancient Corpse Burial Ground, even more cultivators appeared at the Ancient Sky City. Many hidden sects and heritages began to show up as well.
During this lively time, there were more and more coffins appearing in the Ancient Sky City from all of the grand sects and powerful nations. Why did everyone do this as the Underworld boats approach? Even though there were some young cultivators and sects who were indeed here for treasures, but to many grand sects, especially the unfathomable immortal gates and emperor’s lineages, they were only here for the chance to rebirth in order to live for another generation!
A harsh way to put it is that for these millions of years old heritages, which house didn’t have one or two dead people? One could even say that people were never lacking the dead, plus, these dead people were once the most powerful.
In fact, only the dead or the near dead were even more eager to bury themselves inside the Heavenly Ancient Corpse Burial Ground! These eternal existences had lived for one generation after another, and only had a single breath left. They were afraid of death more than anyone else, and did not spare any method in order to prolong their survival.
With the arrival of the Underworld Boats, this was another opportunity for these eternal dying existences to live again!
At this time, countless powers in the world were carrying coffins containing wise sages who had died for countless of years or eternal existences holding on to their last breaths!
For the dying or for the already dead, the Underworld Boat was worth a bet for them. Once successful, this was a rebirth for another generation. Even an Immortal Emperor did not have such an opportunity!
The appearances of some coffins actually caused quite a commotion! Coffins that were capable of stirring the crowd meant that they were carrying amazing characters!
“Isn’t that the Eastern Hundred City’s Immortal Goal Ancient Sect?” At this time, a black coffin was being carried into the city, and a cultivator from the Eastern Hundred City quietly murmured.
Seeing this black coffin, a sect master was surprised then muttered: “The Immortal Goal Ancient Sect have a specification for burial. People who are qualified to use a black coffin are very few! To be buried in a black coffin, the person must be of a grand creation generation and had done incomparable merits for the sect. The Immortal Goal Ancient Sect had not have someone from a grand creation generation for the last thirty thousand years. Could the person inside this coffin be Demon King Cang Hu from fifty thousand years ago!?”
“A golden coffin crafted from Extreme Mysterious Chilled Gold ah!” At this moment a golden coffin was carried into the city and was met by an emotional exclamation: “The Northern Grand Sea’s Tortoise Country actually paid such a great price to use the Extreme Mysterious Chilled Gold for a coffin. This is such a grand gesture.”
“You don’t understand, inside the coffin is the sixth generation son-in-law of the Tortoise Country’s king.” A demon merman who came from the Northern Grand Sea shook his head and said.
“A prince-in-law is treated so well like this?” Someone was caught by surprise and said.
The merman then replied: “The sixth generation prince-in-law of the Tortoise Country is an unfathomable character. He came from a merman tribe, but he actually had one fourth Charming Spirit’s bloodline. He actually transformed from a carp to a dragon and had climbed up the mythical Dragon Gate before! He is not only the pride of the Tortoise Country, but also the pride of the Merman Race!” Having said this, this demon merman couldn’t help but to reveal a proud expression.
When the words “Charming Spirit” was brought up, many cultivators were astonished because to them, no matter if they were humans or demons, to be able to carry the Charming Spirit’s bloodline was a matter worthy of pride.
Charming Spirit Race was the favored child of the high heaven. Their first branch’s cultivation could be described to be extremely easy! There were even people who believe that the Charming Spirit Race was the descendant of the Ancient Immortals. There were also some who refer to them as the Godly Race or Heavenly Race. It was indeed a proud matter to have some Charming Spirit’s bloodline to many people.
Even though the Heavenly Devil Race and Ghost Immortal Race both did not recognize the Charming Spirit Race as the most excellent race in the world, but they could not deny that the first Immortal Emperor came from the Charming Spirit Race… Immortal Emperor Gu Chun!” (Ancient Purity)
“The Southern Crimson Earth’s Ye Feng Clan (Dark Phoenix) is also here.” Seeing a clan carrying a wooden coffin forward, a cultivator from the Southern Crimson Earth couldn’t help but murmured: “The Ye Feng Clan had not show up for almost ten thousand years ah, but they made an exception this time.”
“I heard that the Ye Feng Clan had no other choice. Their last ancestor only has one breath left and has to rely on the large amount of Era Blood Stones to stay alive. But recently the clan sent out news that the Era Blood Stones could no longer maintain the seal even with higher quantity, so they couldn’t afford not to gamble and bring their ancestor up the Underworld Boat.” A royal lord who came from the Southern Crimson Earth softly sighed and explained.
For millions of years, how many characters dominated for so long yet in the end, they still didn’t want to die and even buried themselves in the Heavenly Ancient Corpse Burial Ground to be friends with countless corpses. Of course, characters like this royal lord, even if they feared death, they still weren’t qualified to be buried in the Feng Shui Treasure Earth in the burial ground!
