Chapter 0446: Ning Cheng’s wedding
Yin Yang Dao Sect’s Discourse Hall turned deathly silent and remained like that for quite a while. The Yin Yang Dao Sect’s Grand Elder Taoist, who had not spoken until now, finally spoke up after overcoming his shock, “Did you just say that Ning Cheng took his Dao Companion, and the two people completely destroyed the Red Star Sword Faction?”
The Soul Essence Deacon quickly gave a bow and spoke, “Whatever I just reported is indeed the truth, Elder Taoist Xi. I heard that Ji Luofei only possesses the cultivation of Crucible Transformation 1st Level. However, the fact is, Ning Cheng was the one to single-handedly destroy the Red Star Sword Faction. And…..”
In the hall, all the people sucked in a breath of cold air. This hall contained all the top experts of the Yin Yang Dao Sect. Not to say that none among them could destroy the Red Star Sword Faction by themselves, even if they all went together, they might not necessarily be able to extinguish the Red Star Sword Faction.
How could Ning Cheng be such a heaven-defying monster? Even if Ning Cheng possessed a cultivation equivalent of Crucible Transformation Realm, how could he possibly eradicate the entire Red Star Sword Faction by himself? How could it be that easy?
“And what?” Yin Yang Dao Sect’s Sect Master Hao Anye asked in a deep voice, the killing intent he showed towards the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect a moment ago, concealed itself in just a moment. If the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Ning Cheng did possess such strength, then even if the entire Yin Yang Dao Sect rushed out in full force, rather than Yin Yang Dao Sect exterminating the opposite party, they might be the ones facing counter-extermination.
The Soul Essence Cultivator added on, “The people we sent to the Heavenly Dao Academy and the Heaven Alliance returned…..”
“What’s their response?” Hao Anye eagerly asked. This was the first time for him to show such anxiousness towards a matter, as a Sect Master.
If the Heavenly Dao Academy and the Heaven Alliance were willing to join in with the Yin Yang Dao Sect, then Ning Cheng destroying the Red Star Sword Faction would not mean much.
The Soul Essence Cultivator hesitated slightly before finally speaking out, “They not only refused to come out and join up with us, they even issued a warning that if the Yin Yang Dao Sect dared to provoke the Rainbow Fall Sword Faction without a solid reason, then they would immediately move to attack.”
Hao Anye sat back down in decadence, not even daring to believe the words he heard. The meaning behind the warning was too obvious; their ‘move to attack’ was not to deal with the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect but against his Yin Yang Dao Sect. The Heavenly Dao Academy and the people from the Heaven Alliance were actually helping the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect, what in the world was going on here?
Inside the Heavenly Dao Academy, although Zuo Qiugao was the School Master of the Heavenly Dao Academy; however, while facing Dao Master Xiao Bisheng, even someone like him had to show his utmost respect.
“Tell me, why did you join up with the Yin Yang Dao Sect, the Red Star Sword Faction and the others to lay siege to the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect?” Xiao Bisheng spoke up in a bland tone. His skeleton-like appearance from before had improved a lot; at least, there was now some flesh and blood visible.
Zuo Qiugao felt helplessness. Facing Xiao Bisheng, he just couldn’t conceal his purpose, “Reporting to the Dao Master. Rainbow Fall Sword Sect suddenly came into possession of a treasure, called the Perception Pagoda. With the help of this Perception Pagoda, one could steadily advance to the Crucible Transformation Realm. If our Heavenly Dao Academy did not compete for this kind of treasure, then we would definitely end up eliminated in the future.”
“Oh, so after the Perception Pagoda was taken away by the Yin Yang Dao Sect, why did you give up then?” Xiao Bisheng asked in a calm tone; however, there was an apparent intent within those words.
Zuo Qiugao answered, “After the Yin Yang Dao Sect took away the Perception Pagoda, we found that not a single new Crucible Transformation Cultivator emerged; at least during these few years, there have been no new additions to the number of Crucible Transformation Cultivators within the Yin Yang Dao Sect. Afterwards, I also checked up on the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect; however, after the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect lost the Perception Pagoda, they too did not produce any new Crucible Transformation Cultivators. Therefore, it made me think that perhaps the Perception Pagoda might be a consumable item.”
Xiao Bisheng gave out a sigh before speaking, “You are the School Master of the Heavenly Dao Academy, and I even watched you grow. Yet, you didn’t even investigate the source and acted recklessly. If you had continued this way, then this academy would have reached a dangerous juncture. Let me put it this way, if someone came to my academy intending to snatch away the Heavenly Dao Bridge, what would you do?”
“Of course, I would use every ounce of my strength to defend it. Even if the academy ended up destroyed, I would never allow anyone to take away the Heavenly Dao Bridge.” Zuo Qiugao spoke up without hesitation.
Xiao Bisheng finally spoke up with a disdain-filled voice, “Since the Heavenly Dao Bridge is so important, then I estimate that this Perception Pagoda might be no less important to the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect compared to their Yonder Immortal Rainbow Fall Sword. Why did you not think that the other party did not use their full power to stop it from leaving their hands?”
Zuo Qiugao, instead, gave out a sigh, “Dao Master. Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Yonder Immortal Rainbow Fall Sword has already been lost. Not to mention about joining up with the other major factions, even if my Heavenly Dao Academy went alone, it would be easy for us to extinguish the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect.”
Xiao Bisheng finally felt his anger rising, “Zuo Qiugao. Looks like you think that this world no longer contains other capable people. Did you think that the Heavenly Dao Academy could sweep through everything? I will not speak of anyone else, but the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Sect Master Ning Cheng, he is more than enough to completely extinguish half the Heavenly Dao Academy all by himself. If you continued with this kind of attitude, you’d only be putting my Heavenly Dao Academy at risk. Let’s go, call out all the Crucible Transformation Elders of the Heavenly Dao Academy to the Discourse and Discussion Hall.”
“Dao Master, although Ning Cheng might be comparable to a late stage Crucible Transformation Cultivator, he is …..” Zuo Qiugao’s words had hardly finished when a red light fell into his hands.
Zuo Qiugao then grabbed the red flying sword and allowed his Spiritual Consciousness to sweep into it. However, his facial expression suddenly changed.
“What is it?” Xiao Bisheng immediately asked; in any event, Zuo Qiugao was still the School Master of the Heavenly Dao Academy.
Zuo Qiugao couldn’t help but feel a chill run through his back. He spoke up, still clutching the sword in his trembling hands, “Ning Cheng, accompanied by his Dao Companion, went to the Red Star Sword Faction alone, before killing all the cultivators above the Sea Opening Realm from the Red Star Sword Faction. The Red Star Sword Faction ended up completely annihilated at the hands of Ning Cheng. How is such a thing possible, this……”
In Zuo Qiugao’s heart and mind, there was only a single question ringing ‘how was such a thing possible?’ Even if Ning Cheng turned out to be even stronger than what he estimated, how could he destroy the entire Red Star Sword Faction by himself? However, this messaging sword clearly stated that Ning Cheng had actually laid ruin to the Red Star Sword Faction all by himself.
Xiao Bisheng gave out another sigh before speaking, “This is completely normal. Not to mention the Red Star Sword Faction. Even if I teamed up with Mu Ziming, I’m afraid we wouldn’t even be qualified to be his opponent. Not to mention the fact that both Mu Ziming and I owe our lives to him.”
Saying that it seemed as if he was speaking more to himself, “Possessing a fake Domain, in the entire Yi Xing Mainland, who could even be qualified to be his opponent? Doesn’t it mean that even Xu Anzhen would have to take the long way against him?”
These past few years, the Tian Continent remained remarkably calm. Although there were a few things here and there; however, nothing significant had happened. However, the current Tian Continent went through three major events, one after another.
The first event was the return of Heaven Dao Academy’s Dao Master Xiao Bisheng, Heaven Alliance’s Dao Master Mu Ziming, and the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Sect Master Ning Cheng. The second event came after the return of the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Sect Master Ning Cheng. On learning that the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect had repeatedly suffered attacks from the Red Star Sword Faction, causing the death of his friend Xue Hanrui, he turned utterly furious. He immediately marched towards the Red Star Sword Faction with his lover, and not only killed off the remaining ten Crucible Transformation Cultivators of the Red Star Sword Faction, but also extinguished the Red Star Sword Faction. From then on, the Red Star Sword Faction no longer existed within the Tian Continent.
If the first matter was a topic that everyone talked about, then the second event was equivalent to an earthquake passing through the entire Tian Continent. Destruction of smaller factions over time was a somewhat commonplace occurrence in the Tian Continent, and no one would be surprised about it. However, what kind of an entity was the Red Star Sword Faction? One of the top ten factions. Yet, such influence had ended up utterly annihilated, which turned out to be incredibly shocking for anyone who heard it.
When the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect suffered a sneak attack from others, it did not end up completely destroyed. However, this time, the Red Star Sword Faction ended up decimated in an entirely fair and above-board manner. This caused the name of the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect to suddenly ring in every corner of the Tian Continent. Whatever the topic, it could not be separated from the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect, Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Sect Master Ning Cheng along with his Dao Companion Ji Luofei.
Moreover, since the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Sect Master and his Dao Companion were inseparable, the news about the soon-to-be-married event of the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Sect Master Ning Cheng and his Dao Companion Ji Luofei quickly disseminated out with the fastest speed.
If Ning Cheng had not extinguished the Red Star Sword Faction in such a blitzkrieg manner, his wedding would never have been this sensational as to spread throughout the Tian Continent.
At this moment, both inside and outside of the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect, the place remained filled with festive colours. Even the Rainbow Fall Makeshift Market’s stalls hung festive decorations in celebration.
The Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Mountain Protecting Grand Array was also wide open at this moment, while rows after rows of External Affairs Disciples lined up in front of it and welcomed people. Since the inception of the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect, this was the first time that they held such a huge event.
All the guests who arrived at the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect knew that this event was not just for the wedding of Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Sect Master Ning Cheng. It was also for another important matter relating to the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect. That is, the Yonder Immortal Rainbow Fall Sword that had been lost for decades had returned once again, it would once again take up its original position at the Rainbow Fall Sword Peak.
Initially, although the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect possessed a sturdy grandeur; however, after the return of the Yonder Immortal Rainbow Fall Sword, its glory increased by not just one or two times.
Countless guests streamed through the gates of the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect to give their congratulations. Even a few rogue cultivators came to the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect to take in the lively sights. Especially since these kinds of gathering with many cultivators would always incite large-scale exchanges and auctions. Moreover, such an exciting event on this scale was not very common in the Tian Continent.
At the Mountain Protecting Grand Array’s entrance, the External Affairs Disciples were always on their toes to greet and welcome the more famous and celebrated guests that came to congratulate.
“Profound Light Chamber of Commerce’s President Yuan Qin came in person to congratulate….”
“Great Change Island’s Sect Master Yi Sichong came in person to congratulate….”
“Floating Snow Palace’s Seventh Palace Master Sang Jiezhu came in person to congratulate…..”
“Heaven Alliance’s Dao Master Mu Ziming came in person to congratulate…..”
“Heavenly Dao Academy’s Dao Master Xiao Bisheng, Sect Master Zuo Qiugao came in person to congratulate……”
“Yin Yang Dao Sect’s Dao Master Xi Ann and Sect Master Hao Anye came in person to congratulate…..”
“Yu Ocean Palace’s Palace Master Yu Haixi came in person to congratulate……”
Looking at all the high-profile people streaming into the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect, the countless lively rogue cultivators felt thrilled. Even if compared to the Great Meet of the Academies that they had attended previously, they had never once seen so many high-profile personages together.
“From among the top ten factions, apart from the destroyed Red Star Sword Faction, it seems that only the Severing Emotions Dao Sect has not come. The rest of the factions have already arrived. Even people from the Battle Devil Hall have come.”
“Wasn’t there a conflict between the Yin Yang Dao Sect and the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect? So why did the Yin Yang Dao Sect’s Sect Master come?”
“What do you know? Sect Master Ning already possesses cultivation that is above the Crucible Transformation Realm and had single-handedly uprooted the entire Red Star Sword Faction. If I were the Sect Master of the Yin Yang Dao Sect, I would also have definitely come.
Ning Cheng, along with the Rainbow Fall Sword Sect’s Grand Elder Taoist Zhong Liping, personally came forward to welcome Xiao Bisheng and Mu Ziming. Compared to their appearances right after exiting the Blue Hole, Mu Ziming and Xiao Bisheng both looked a lot healthier.
“Brother Mu, did Xu Anzhen really enter the Heaven’s Way?” Ning Cheng’s first sentence was about asking Xu Anzhen’s whereabouts. He had initially learned from Zhong Liping that Xu Anzhen had most likely entered Heaven’s Way.
Mu Ziming nodded and spoke, “Yes, Xu Anzhen definitely entered Heaven’s Way. I suspect that she is aiming for Rui Baishan. It’s just that it’s becoming harder and harder to enter Heaven’s Way…”
Ning Cheng already understood Mu Ziming’s meaning. He knew that if more people wanted to enter the Heaven’s Way, it also needed more Mirage Stones to create the Array Flags for opening the entrance to Heaven’s Way. However, something like a Mirage Stone was really too precious.
