Chapter 0735: Let’s Start With Hate
A beautiful red setting sun appeared in front Guo Jingtian, making him reluctant to destroy it with the weapon in hand. No, it wasn’t that he couldn’t bear to do it, but the overwhelming sadness emanating from the setting sun had caused him to stop moving. It felt like he saw the dusk of his life.
Time Law Spirit Technique……
Guo Jingtian felt horrified. Feeling death creeping up, he frantically started burning his essence blood and longevity.
“Poof……” A large-scale blood mist erupted, but Guo Jingtian managed to twist his body forcibly just before Ning Cheng’s Nirvana Spear struck his chest. But despite using such methods, Ning Cheng’s Nirvana Spear still managed to smash one of his arms into a bloody mist.
Guo Jingtian madly retreated, and at the same time, raised his other hand to take out several medicinal pills before swallowing them. In just a few breaths, the arm that had turned into a blood mist reformed. But the newly reformed limb gave off a weak aura, much more fragile compared to the previous one.
After the arm took shape, he looked at Ning Cheng in shock. He understood that it was not a real technique relating to the Laws of Time, but that single spear technique had reached infinitesimally close to the actual Laws of Time. If it were a technique with real Laws of Time, then Ning Cheng’s spear would have definitely killed him in an instant.
Ning Cheng coldly looked at Guo Jingtian, while his killing intent quietly fused with the spear in hand.
In truth, he didn’t use his full strength just now. He used the same Sunset’s Twilight he used in the past, without the real Laws of Time.
When he came out of the Time Wilderness for the second time, he had already realised the real Laws of Time. At the very least, he now controlled a corner of the Laws of Time. But he intentionally hid his actual ability. Although he could have easily killed Guo Jingtian using the real Laws of Time and his spear, it would have also revealed one of his ace cards. Besides, this Guo Jingtian was only a trivial ant.
For Ning Cheng right now, if he could kill his opponent, then he would kill them, if he can’t kill them, then so be it. He wouldn’t publically use the Laws of Time to execute Guo Jingtian.
All the Eternal-level experts in the guest hall felt shocked by the power of Ning Cheng’s spear. What would happen if they were to face such a spear? Fortunately, Ning Cheng didn’t understand the real Laws of Time. As such, that spear was just a little more than a bluff.
A flash of horror passed through Chuan Xinlou’s eyes. He also understood that Ning Cheng’s spear technique was not truly a technique that used Laws of Time. At best, it was a technique that compressed time infinitesimally, which caused an illusion of stopping time. This kid cannot stay alive; since he already can squeeze time, it means this bastard is infinitely close to the Laws of Time, and would undoubtedly realise the actual Laws of Time in the future. Once Ning Cheng understood the real Laws of Time, even Chuan Xinlou might not be an opponent for Ning Cheng.
“Old bastard, daring to be arrogant in my territory, let’s see if you can actually take another of this emperor’s spear.” Ning Cheng’s domain exploded outwards. He felt confident of killing Guo Jingtian this time as long as no one else stepped in, and he wouldn’t need to use his trump cards.
Guo Jingtian, who had already burned a lot of his longevity and essence blood, looked like a dying old man. He looked pale and could feel Ning Cheng’s domain completely suppressing his domain. This caused his eyes to fill up with fear and horror.
Gua Sangan’s expressions turned ugly. If Chuan Xinlou didn’t stand up now, he would have to stand up. He could not let an Eternal-level expert from his Endless Void Docks die at Ning Cheng’s hands. Fortunately, although Ning Cheng had tremendous strength, he wasn’t as strong as he appeared.
“Alright.” Chuan Xinlou finally stood up, “Dao Friend Guo, you shouldn’t have spoken rudely in Sect Master Ning’s house. Since Sect Master Ning has already taught you a lesson, let’s put it to rest. Since we’re all here today, let’s talk about exploring the Ancient Shadow Temple.”
Ning Cheng showed a slight smile and put away his Nirvana Spear, “Since Levelled Heart Heavenly Emperor has said so I’ll let this trash go. But if he dares to even open his mouth the next time, I will not remain polite about it.”
Although Ning Cheng showed a smile on the surface, his heart had nothing but killing intent. This Chuan Xinlou truly had no good intentions; unfortunately, he didn’t have the required strength to deal with Chuan Xinlou. If he continued to force this matter, it would mean completely tearing off all face with Chuan Xinlou.
But he also regretted it a little. Although not at full strength, he could have killed Guo Jingtian with another spear strike without using any real Laws of Time.
At this point, Ning Cheng didn’t tell Guo Jingtian to get lost. If he said Guo Jingtian to get lost, and he truly went away, how would he scheme against this fellow inside the Ancient Shadow Temple?
Although it’s never late for a man to take revenge ten years later, for Ning Cheng, even one extra day felt too much. He didn’t care about being such a person; he decided to take his revenge by the end of the day.
“Sect Master Ning’s Laws of Time look truly amazing.” Silver Feather Starry Sky Emperor Fu Yingkui spoke with a smile, while also opening the folding fan in his hand.
However, everyone could see the sarcasm at the corner of his mouth.
Initially, Fu Yingkui felt truly scared by the strength displayed by Ning Cheng when he first stepped in. But after Ning Cheng made that move, he realised that the spear technique did not contain the real Laws of Time. Therefore, even if Ning Cheng’s power exceeded him, it still had a limit. As such, there was no need for him to be so afraid of Ning Cheng.
Ning Cheng’s expressions remained calm, and he didn’t respond to Fu Yingkui’s words at all. He intentionally concealed the real Laws of Time in his spirit technique, not to deal with a little ant-like Fu Yingkui, but to deal with Chun Xinlou later.
Zhangkang Tianji turned towards Fu Yingkui and said, “Stop blabbering words and waste everyone’s time. We came here to enter the Ancient Shadow Temple. Since the Ancient Shadow Temple appeared in Sect Master Ning’s territory and also sealed away by Sect Master Ning after he went in once, let’s talk about it.”
Ning Cheng ignored Fu Yingkui but remained very polite with Zhangkang Tianji, “Heaven Crossing Heavenly Emperor, I can open the Ancient Shadow Temple at any time, but there is a unique kind of poison mist inside, so everyone should be careful about it. We can go in now if you want.”
“That’s the best. I don’t like to procrastinate.” Zhangkang Tianji gave a straightforward reply.
Ning Cheng then turned and smiled towards Chuan Xinlou before cupping his fists and said, “Levelled Heart Heavenly Emperor, I want to ask you something first.”
Chuan Xinlou replied with a calm voice, “If Sect Master Ning has something to ask, and as long as I know about it, I will naturally answer it to the best of my abilities.”
“I heard that a patch of Breath Soil had appeared in Culmination Starland sometime in the past and that it was Levelled Heart Heavenly Emperor who obtained this patch of Breath Soil. Is this news true? I’ve always wondered what Breath Soil looks like; can you take it out and help me open my eyes?” Ning Cheng said with a smile.
As soon as Ning Cheng’s words ended, everyone immediately shifted their gazes to Chuan Xinlou. Yi Jiufeng had even started panting a little. Her Wind Thunder Apricot Tree was essentially half-dead. If she could obtain even a small patch of Breath Soil, her Wind Thunder Apricot would not only rejuvenate, it might even grow a Thunder Apricot.
Chuan Xinlou felt anger rising in his heart, but he didn’t show it on his face. Instead, he said with a slight smile, “Sect Master Ning, I think you might be mistaken about it. It wasn’t a patch of Breath Soil but a patch of dirt that once stored Breath Soil. Someone had put it up for auction in Culmination Starland, and I had indeed purchased it, but its value doesn’t even match the price I had to pay for it. I placed it in the Levelled Heart Emperor Mountain, but its effect is as not obvious as the legends.”
“Oh, if that’s the case, then it seems those rumours can’t be trusted, eh.” Ning Cheng sighed and asked again, “Levelled Heart Heavenly Emperor, since you placed that patch of Breath Soil in your Levelled Heart Emperor Mountain, then you presumably must have found the source of this breath soil, right?”
Chuan Xinlou was turning angrier by the moment. He felt sure that Ning Cheng already knew that it was not Breath Soil, yet this bastard deliberately addressed it repeatedly as Breath Soil.
“I didn’t find it. This kind of treasure only forms during the formation of heaven and earth. How could it be easy for people to obtain it by just running around on their feet?” Chuan Xinlou clenched his fists but spoke with a flat tone.
Ning Cheng sighed and spoke with a regretful voice, “I thought that Levelled Heart Heavenly Emperor used that patch of Breath Soil because you found the source. If it were I, I would have never used it without finding the origins of that patch of Breath Soil. Still, I think Levelled Heart Heavenly Emperor must have carefully pondered over it.”
Chuan Xinlou grew so angry that his heart had almost started to bleed. This son-of-a-bitch was pulling hatred from everyone onto him. He only needed to look at the eyes of the Eternal-level Heavenly Emperors around him to figure it out. If it truly were a patch of dirt that once stored Breath Soil, no one would use it before actually finding its origin. If one used it, then there were only two possibilities. One is that this patch of dirt did not store Breath Soil, but was the real Breath Soil. The other was that he already found the origin of the Breath Soil it once contained.
What made Chuan Xinlou almost vomit blood was that Ning Cheng didn’t even wait for him to speak at all, and spoke up once again, “Once this matter with the Ancient Shadow Temple concludes, maybe I should go to Culmination Starland to look around? Oh right, the last time I was there, I heard people say that Levelled Heart Heavenly Emperor obtained a fragment of the Good Fortune Indestructible Axe. Would it be possible to at least have a look at it and broaden my horizons?”
“Sect Master Ning, although we came to visit you and your Jiangzhou Star, you should pay a little more attention to your words, you know. A Good Fortune Treasure is not something anyone can obtain. If I say that there is a Good Fortune Treasure with Sect Master Ning, maybe Sect Master Ning will turn unhappy too, right?” Chuan Xinlou spoke with a trace of killing intent in his voice.
Ning Cheng spoke with a surprised tone, “Why would I turn unhappy about it? If I obtained a Good Fortune Treasure, why wouldn’t I be happy? If I would be happy about it, why would I be unhappy? Does it mean that Levelled Heart Heavenly Emperor did not obtain the Good Fortune Treasure? Oh right, now that I think about it, shouldn’t it be Brother Zhongming who obtained it? When the Good Fortune Treasure appeared in Culmination Starland, I remember Brother Zhongming also being there.”
Although Zhongming Qianbo was a Weapon Emperor, it didn’t mean anything here. Not to mention that he couldn’t measure up to Ning Cheng, he couldn’t measure up to quite a few Starry Sky Heavenly Emperors here. Now that Ning Cheng lit the flame over his head, he quickly waved his hands and said, “This has nothing to do with me, nothing to do with me. I didn’t steal it….”
As soon as Zhongming Qianbo spoke those words, Ning Cheng knew that he achieved his purpose, and simply nodded and said, “Yeah, now that I think about it, although Brother Zhongming has his strength, this Good Fortune Treasure should still be some distance from Brother Zhongming’s capabilities. Ok, let’s stop this nonsense now, and hurry to the Ancient Shadow Temple.”
Although Ning Cheng blatantly stated that he was not qualified for owning the Good Fortune Indestructible Axe fragment, Zhongming Qianbo did not dare to speak even half a word of nonsense.
Chuan Xinlou’s face grew more and more livid with anger. Although Ning Cheng didn’t explicitly state it, his roundabout way with words and Zhongming Qianbo’s reply already confirmed to everyone that a fragment of Good Fortune Indestructible Axe had indeed appeared in Culmination Starland. What’s more, this bastard had directly referred to it as Good Fortune Treasure. Even if the matter settled right away, everyone’s focus had already shifted to Chuan Xinlou’s head without this bastard saying anything explicitly. In fact, the execution was so intricate that everyone had no choice but to suspect that Chuan Xinlou had a Good Fortune Treasure. If Culmination Starland’s Zhongming Qianbo could not qualify to keep it, then who else would be qualified to keep it in Culmination Starland apart from Chuan Xinlou?
 Heaven Crossing (Tianji) is both a name and a title. Remember, anything before the words ‘Heavenly Emperor’ is a title and anything after it is a name. Old Five regularly uses names as titles, but there are also instances where the names and titles are different.
 Old Five initially used Jinming Qianbo as the name but changed it to Zhongming Qianbo.
