Chapter 0335: Don’t mind it, but don’t mess with this Young Grandpa
If there were no Everlasting Blue Thunder City, then Ning Cheng would have already died a hundred times if not a thousand times by now. But even with the Everlasting Blue Thunder City, Ning Cheng could also not completely block these many cultivators in the Soul Essence and Soul Sculpting Realm, let alone the fact that they even had cultivators in the Sea Opening Realm among them. If it had been individual combat, then Sea Opening Realm Cultivators would have been able to easily massacre Ning Cheng without its protection.
It was at this moment that Shi Qionghua rushed into the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, when the two Crucible Transformation Cultivators came out of seclusion in the Severing Emotions Dao Sect. At this moment, Ning Cheng’s Everlasting Blue Thunder City’s shadow was completely blown into nihility, while Ning Cheng’s entire body was drenched in blood as he was sent back flying. However, the surrounding was a scene full of carnage. Blood and gore mixed with random body parts could be seen everywhere, as disciples of the Severing Emotions Dao Sect had fallen one after another in every direction the eyes could see.
Shi Qionghua was completely startled on encountering this scene, before she rushed past all of it and grabbed Ning Cheng tightly in her hands, while simultaneously activated the array formation opening jade card to shoot out of the sect.
Even if Shi Qionghua was a person from the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, the two recently emerged Crucible Transformation Elders unhesitatingly attacked her.
Ning Cheng had killed many of the outstanding disciples of the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, but Shi Qionghua unexpectedly wanted to take Ning Cheng and escape, how could they allow such a thing?
“Bang, bang…..” A white ray of light, together with a black light exploded onto the back of the fleeing Shi Qionghua.
Shi Qionghua crazily spouted out a mouthful of blood, however she still managed to run out of the entrance of the now-open array formation, however Ning Cheng was already starting to lapse into a coma in her hands.
Not waiting for Shi Qionghua to successfully escape, the two Crucible Transformation Elders after sneak attacking Shi Qionghua immediately rushed out, and once again prepared to attack Shi Qionghua.
In just a short time, they were able to encircle Shi Qionghua. At this moment, she was surrounded on all sides by the cultivators from the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, with her in the middle.
Shi Qionghua and Ning Cheng had completely different personalities; Ning Cheng had the personality that if someone tried to kill him, then he would definitely kill them. He was surrounded in the Severing Emotions Dao Sect by their people with not so good intentions, so he just reciprocated in kind by turning into a mass murderer. There was absolutely no way that he could show even half a shred of mercy in that situation. However, Shi Qionghua was actually not cruel enough to commit such a slaughter; moreover, the matter of her being suppressed by Xu Anzhen was also not something that the others were aware. On the other hand, she and the cultivators of the Severing Emotions Dao Sect shared the acquaintanceship of being from the same sect at the very least.
Not to say that there were many cultivators encircling Shi Qionghua, there was one among them whose cultivation were not much worse than Shi Qionghua herself, there another cultivator who was even more powerful than Shi Qionghua. However, she still held onto Ning Cheng, since she had already decided to take action, then compromising at this moment was not an option. Besides, even if she decided to compromise, would they even spare her?
Only a half-an-incense stick worth of time had passed, however Shi Qionghua’s hair was already dishevelled from the battle. Her snow white robe was also dyed red. At this moment, she was very much willing to leave but was simply not able to.
Ning Cheng finally woke up with a mouthful of warm blood. He saw Shi Qionghua carrying him but stranded in the middle, and immediately understood what was going on. However, it was fortunate that at present they were outside of the Severing Emotions Dao Sect.
This time they HAD to escape, otherwise if they waited until Xu Anzhen came back, then they would definitely die. Moreover, they would not even be able to choose a good way to die.
Ning Cheng struggled to take out a stack of Talismans, handed it to Shi Qionghua, and spoke, “Senior Apprentice Sister Qionghua, hold onto me tightly, activate all of them from top to the bottom……”
He had only managed to say a few words, when Ning Cheng fainted once again. His wounds were even worse than he had imagined. But Ning Cheng was afraid that Shi Qionghua would not know how to use the Transmission Array Talismans, so he incautiously brought them all out, and specially reminded Shi Qionghua with a sentence.
Shi Qionghua was already a spent force, even if she wanted to kill the next killer coming her way; it would already be too late. At this moment, when Ning Cheng took out a stack of Talismans, she simply did not think of anything else, and immediately did as Ning Cheng said. Holding onto Ning Cheng tightly, she immediately stimulated the first talisman.
A white light flashed, and the next moment, she had already vanished from the sight of the crowd surrounding her and Ning Cheng.
“Everybody need not panic; this was just a Transmission Array Talisman, not an Escaping Talisman. We few Crucible Transformation Elders will definitely chase them. The rest of you protect the academy, someone also immediately pass on the report of what happened to the Headmaster……” After a Crucible Transformation Cultivator spoke that, they immediately chased in the direction of the local spacial fluctuations.
If not for Ning Cheng’s Transmission Array Talismans, Shi Qionghua would not even be able to escape from the encirclement, let alone walk out of it. Now all she had to do was stimulate one Escaping Talisman after another following Ning Cheng’s instructions. The people chasing behind Shi Qionghua also did not think that Shi Qionghua would use one Transmission Array Talisman after another. If there were only one or two, with Shi Qionghua’s present condition, they would have been able to overtake her very easily. However, with the Transmission Array Talismans being activated one after another, how could they even keep up the pursuit?
At the same time, in order to return to the academy as soon as possible, the Crucible Transformation Elders of the Severing Emotions Dao Sect actually ended up battling it out with the other Crucible Transformation Cultivators blocking their way.
With dozens of Crucible Transformation Cultivators fighting it out in the open, it reduced almost a thousand mile area around them to dust.
Just like the battle at the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, where a large number of disciples from the Severing Emotions Dao Sect surrounded and attacked Ning Cheng inside the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, in this place there were many Crucible Transformation Cultivators encircling and attacking the people from the Severing Emotions Dao Sect.
When the battle first started, the Floating Snow Palace was the main force. After all, the Severing Emotions Dao Sect possessed the Geocentric 9 Yin Essence and the Nine-Coloured Mirage Tree, which was what everybody among them had thought. All the other factions had ulterior motives of their own, as such each of them chose to hold back their respective strengths just in case. Moreover, the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, even under the strong leadership of Xu Anzhen, was unexpectedly not able to gain any leeway.
However, as Crucible Transformation Cultivators continued to fall one after another, the other Crucible Transformation Cultivators of the other major academies also started to erupt with their full power. Some of the academy’s thoughts also started shifting from taking away the Geocentric 9 Yin Essence, and moved towards using this opportunity to completely destroy the Severing Emotions Dao Sect.
The two sides were already playing with true fire, but then suddenly everything changed; even the large patch of sky above immediately started to violently vibrate because of the wild explosions from the bombardment of magical weapons. In the past several hundred years, this battle was definitely the largest open battle between the various factions of Crucible Transformation Cultivators.
If not for the Elder Taoist Xu Anzhen from the Severing Emotions Dao Sect activating a secret technique, allowing her to simultaneously kill a few Crucible Transformation Cultivators surrounding and attacking them, the Severing Emotions Dao Sect would have most probably been completely annihilated in this battle today.
As the battle grew to such an extent that it even hid the light from the sun and moon, it immediately sent the entire Tian Continent into shock. Of the 12 Crucible Transformation Cultivators from the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, nine of them had already perished. Of the three remaining people, the Headmaster Henyun was seriously injured, while that Elder Taoist Xu Anzhen ended up sustaining even more heavy wounds on top of her previous wounds, to the point that even her foundation was severely injured; even the hope of recovering from it was extremely slim. Of the Crucible Transformation Cultivators that came to the Grand Peace City under the banner of the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, other than Zu Anzhen protecting Xu Yingdei on the outside, none of them was able to make it out at all; only a single Crucible Transformation Elder remained with genuinely light injuries compared to others.
The Floating Snow Palace had dispatched nine Crucible Transformation Elders this time, including four palace masters. However, three among the nine ended up perishing, while one of them was reduced to a life essence. Of the three people that perished, it also included a Palace Master of the Floating Snow Palace.
The Burning Sun Weapon Sect, the Yin Yang Dao Sect, the Star Gathering Mansion, the Battle Devil Hall, each ended up with a Crucible Transformation Cultivator less. The Red Star Sword Faction, in order to show that it had no involvement with the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, fought with urgency only second to the Floating Snow Palace, resulting in two of their Crucible Transformation Cultivators perishing.
In this manner, altogether 18 Crucible Transformation Cultivators ended up perishing. There were even a number of Crucible Transformation Cultivators, whose corporeal body ended up destroyed, leaving behind only their life essences.
During the battle, everyone went crazy, but after the battle, everyone started to calm down. Everyone started to think about the situations that led to this battle and also its consequences.
Because of this battle, it not only shook all the academies in the Tian Continent, but even the behemoth, the Heaven Alliance, was left shaken.
However, nobody knew if the Severing Emotions Dao Sect really possessed the Geocentric 9 Yin Essence and the Nine-Coloured Mirage Tree. Especially since the remaining people from the Severing Emotions Dao Sect returned to academy as soon as possible and immediately sealed up the mountain entrance. Once the mountain entrance was sealed up, it meant that in the future, the Tian Continent would simply not be able to obtain any news relating to the Severing Emotions Dao Sect. Moreover, no one knew when the Severing Emotions Dao Sect would emerge once again.
Inside the Severing Emotions Dao Sect, Xu Anzhen who originally had the appearance of a young girl, at this moment looked very old. In the huge discussion hall, at this moment, there were only four Crucible Transformation Cultivators, while the rest were only cultivators in the Sea Opening Realm. It can be said that in this battle, the Severing Emotions Dao Sect not only suffered huge losses, it had almost reached to the point that it was almost extinguished.
In front of Xu Anzhen was a large plaque with a few words written, ‘Don’t mind it, but don’t mess with this young grandpa.’
This plaque was actually brought out from the place where Xu Anzhen had kept the soul essences suppressed. It was obviously left behind by the person who sneak attacked the Severing Emotions Dao Sect in her absence and had even taken away the nine soul lamps.
There was also a huge crystal ball next to this plaque; this crystal ball contained a clear image inside, the image of Ning Cheng.
“Who is this person?” This time even Xu Anzhen’s voice was growing hoarser, it even lacked the faintest aura of containing any true essence.
“I have seen Ning Cheng once before, this person should definitely not be Ning Cheng. Moreover, this person can instantly kill Soul Essence Cultivators, and is almost equivalent to a cultivator at intermediate stages of the Soul Sculpting Realm. Even if Ning Cheng was extremely powerful, it would simply be impossible for him to be this formidable.” A Crucible Transformation Female Cultivator spoke with a sinking sound.
Xu Anzhen did not directly answer this female Crucible Transformation Cultivator’s words, rather she looked at Xu Yingdei at her side and spoke, “Yingdei, you are more familiar with Ning Cheng, do you think it’s him?”
Xu Yingdei stared at this crystal ball for a long time, before she finally spoke up, “Grandma, I’m not completely sure about it. But the likelihood of this person being Ning Cheng is very huge. This first thing is because Ning Cheng possess the Twin Wings of the Heavenly Clouds, as such only he would be able to enter that place. At the same time, he is also very proficient in Array Formations. The reason we were able to find the Geocentric 9 Yin Essence was originally that he was proficient in array formations. Moreover, his strength is definitely beyond those of the same level, if he ended up advancing to the Soul Essence Realm, then it would not be unusual for him to have some changes in his appearance.”
“If that is the case, then why are you not sure if it is him?” Xu Anzhen’s expression and tone was as cold as ice.
Xu Yingdei shuddered in face of such a tone, as she bowed her head and spoke, “I and Ning Cheng have been together for a long time, so I understand Ning Cheng’s character a lot better than others. He is not a bloodthirsty person, even when he knew that Yin Kongchan and me had designs on him, he still chose to save the two of us in the end. In the Forsaken Land, when we were leaving Ya Lun City, he was definitely able to massacre the Ya Lun City’s City Master and even extinguish the entire city if he chose to, but he did not, he even did not kill that Princess Man who tried to kill him on occasions.”
“Moreover, I had poured my love into his body, in other words my Sword of Severing Emotions had pierced his body. Even if he somehow managed to survive through it, he definitely would not have such achievements in the present. Besides, I also left behind my Burning Fires of Lustful Desires in him, so I don’t think he or anyone for the matter would be able to survive it. I wonder if someone ended up getting those things from his body, so…..”
“What if he was never in love with you and a woman with a pure yin body ended up using her body to save him?” Xu Anzhen suddenly spoke.
Xu Yingdei’s complexion immediately changed, if Ning Cheng truly did not fall in love with her, then she would be caught in her own trap, as such, her future fate can easily be imagined.
Xu Anzhen no longer paid any attention to Xu Yingdei again, as she swept her gaze at the people in the main hall and spoke, “There is a high possibility that this person definitely is Ning Cheng……”
“Elder Taoist, if this person truly is Ning Cheng, then all of this would not be too difficult to explain. However, I am not clear as to why my Severing Emotions Dao Sect’s Shi Qionghua would collude with the enemies of our Severing Emotions Dao Sect?” The Crucible Transformation Elder, who just now spoke that this person might not be Ning Cheng a while ago, once again stood up and spoke.
Xu Anzhen nodded towards the Crucible Transformation Elder and spoke, “In the future I will personally catch Ning Cheng and Shi Qionghua and bring them back, keep them kneeling here as I extract their souls and interrogate them. Who knew that Shi Qionghua would be such a cheap person, and would not even be concerned about face before entering into Dual Cultivation with Ning Cheng?”
Then Xu Anzhen’s expression suddenly changed, and became even more severe before she spoke, “Currently my Severing Emotions Dao Sect’s vigour has been severely damaged, and as such can only chose to seal off the sect, which is the most shameful thing for my Severing Emotions Dao Sect. From today on, I will impart the cultivation methods for the Realms beyond the Crucible Transformation Realm on you all. When the time comes for my Severing Emotions Dao Sect to once again open their doors that would be time for us to collect our debts.”
