Chapter 0953: Battling Dao Transformation
“I heard that your Bei Clan is looking for the Empyrean Consciousness Transmutation Pill Recipe? I just happen to have this pill recipe; I also have the materials for this pill recipe. I even happen to know how to refine the Empyrean Consciousness Transmutation Pills.” Ning Cheng said in a light tone.
Bei Qianhai instantly understood a few things. Back then, Man Huishan had said that Ji He was a fake. Now that Ning Cheng said this, if he still didn’t realise that the Ning Cheng in front of him was the fake Ji He, he would indeed be worse than a pig in intelligence.
“You’re…..” Bei Qianhai couldn’t help but point at Ning Cheng with a slightly agitated face.
If Ning Cheng were indeed Ji He, he wouldn’t need to be so cautious at all. The person who had taken Ji He’s identity was nothing more than a rogue cultivator without any backing. Otherwise, how could he have taken out ten bottles of Empyrean Consciousness Transmutation Pills for Star Stepping Tower’s Master? Or even request the Star Stepping Tower’s Master to protect him?
A rogue cultivator without any backing had dared to come to his Bei Clan; what else was he looking for but death? As long as his Bei Clan captured him, his Bei Clan would have the Empyrean Consciousness Transmutation Pill.
With the Empyrean Consciousness Transmutation Pill Recipe, his Bei Clan would quickly become one of the most prominent clans in the Grand Essence Realm.
If he wasn’t still a bit apprehensive about Ning Cheng holding his son, Bei Bai, hostage, he would have already ordered Ning Cheng’s capture.
“Put down Bei Bai, and I will allow you to leave.” Bei Qianhai forcefully kept his excitement at bay. What were his son’s broken meridians compared to the Empyrean Consciousness Transmutation Pill Recipe?
Ning Cheng spoke up without any panic. “I heard that my Junior Apprentices Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong have been imprisoned by your Bei Clan? Send them out in exchange for Bei Bai, or else Bei Bai dies.”
After Ning Cheng said the word ‘dies’, his spirit essence poured into Bei Bai’s body, shattering several more of his meridians. Bei Bai’s already pale face now showed a hint of unhealthy red as he opened his mouth and coughed out several mouthfuls of blood.
When Bei Qianhai saw Bei Bai suffering at Ning Cheng’s hands, he became so angry that his hands and feet visibly trembled. It was only after a while did he manage to reign in his anger and said, “Go and bring up Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong.”
In about ten breaths, someone brought up Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong.
Before seeing Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong, Ning Cheng only wanted to teach this Bei Clan a lesson. But now that he saw Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong, his anger erupted, turning into rage.
At this time, Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong no longer had any limbs. Not only that, there wasn’t even a single unscarred spot on whatever skin remained on their body. Even Xin Xiu, a female cultivator, suffered so much torture that there wasn’t even a scrap of clothing covering her body. If the Bei Clan hadn’t actively prevented Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong’s deaths, these two probably would have died many times over.
Considering how Ning Cheng only shattered two of Bei Bai’s meridians, Bei Qianhai’s methods were even more vicious. Flames of anger raged even more powerfully inside Ning Cheng’s heart. If not for taking away Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong, Ning Cheng would have already moved to kill a long time ago.
“I’ve brought them up. Can this friend hand over Bei Bai to our Bei Clan now?” Bei Qianhai stared at Ning Cheng with cold eyes. As long as Ning Cheng dared to make the slightest movement, he wouldn’t hesitate to attack even if he had to risk losing his son, Bei Bai.
Ning Cheng took in a deep breath and forced down the flames of anger in his chest. He took out two pieces of clothing and wrapped them around Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong before turning to Jian Sanshan. “Brother Jian, can I ask you to take these two back to Heaven Essence Sacred City? I will come over soon after I finish my business here.”
Although Jian Sanshan had some doubts if Ning Cheng could hold back the wrath of the Bei Clan, he also knew that he couldn’t do anything more to help Ning Cheng here. Once a fight did break out, Bei Clan wouldn’t bother to give him, Jian Sanshan, any face.
“Okay. Brother Ning, take care of yourself.” Jian Sanshan grabbed Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong and left Bei Clan’s main hall in an instant.
Ning Cheng’s spiritual consciousness kept a close watch on Jian Sanshan before he finally left its range.
From when Ning Cheng asked Jian Sanshan for the favour to when Jian Sanshan left with Xin Xiu and Wu Qihong far away, Bei Qianhai didn’t make any move.
Only after Jian Sanshan walked away did Bei Qianhao stare coldly at Ning Cheng and barked, “Are you going to hand over Bei Bai to my Bei Clan, or not?”
“Sure” After Ning Cheng said that word, he raised his hand and threw Bei Bai over.
Bei Qianhao took a step forward and raised his hand to catch Bei Bai with a joyful heart. As long as Bei Bai was alive, even if this Ning Cheng had three heads and six arms, he wouldn’t be able to leave his Bei Clan.
But just when Bei Qianhai was about to catch Bei Bai, a violent fluctuation erupted from Bei Bai’s body. It immediately startled Bei Qianhai. But before he could react, he heard an intense explosion.
Bei Bai, who was just inches away from him, exploded into a bloody mist. A powerful spirit essence explosion had erupted from within his son’s body, soaking him, Bei Qianhai, in his son’s blood and guts.
“Bastard, I will devour you alive……” Bei Qianhai let out a tearing scream and then roared with an even harsher cry, “All members of Bei Clan, listen to the order. Capture this invading man alive; my Bei Clan will skin this man and burn his soul……”
Even if this Bei Clan wanted to move against Ning Cheng, Ning Cheng had already decided to exterminate this clan when he killed Bei Bai.
“First Bridge, Bridge of Coping…..” Ning Cheng roared almost the exact moment Bei Qianhai screamed. The Seven Bridges Realm Book suddenly emerged suspended over his head.
Suddenly, a pale white Bridge of Coping appeared out of thin air amidst the endless gloomy winds. This time, the yin qi swirling around the Bridge of Coping looked much more stable than before.
Rolling rivers of blood coalesced out of thin air, transforming Bei Clan’s main hall into a netherworld hell in an instant.
Not a single person from Bei Clan’s younger generation could resist it and rushed towards the Bridge of Coping. As long as they were within the boundary of Bei Clan’s mansion, everyone got swept away by the Bridge of Coping without exception.
As more and more Bei Clan’s members jumped into the rivers of blood underneath the bridge, the Bridge of Coping’s blood river started to rage even more. Even the wildly swirling gloomy winds became more and more ghastly.
“No return from life, no retreat from death, once you enter Coping, you never return….” The distant call from Bridge of Coping drilled into the hearts and souls of Bei Clan’s members. At this moment, everyone understood that an endless disaster had befallen the Bei Clan.
“No…..” Bei Qianhai let out an anguished cry full of sorrow. He managed to forcefully stop himself from crossing the five-letter stone stele next to Bridge of Coping’s bridgehead. At this moment, only four words remained in his heart, ‘Bei Clan was finished’.
At this moment, his hatred could wash away the three rivers and blast the four seas dry. A few moments ago, his Bei Clan was preparing to enter the ranks of the Grand Essence Realm’s great clans. So how could he accept being wiped out in just one instant?
He was a Dao Transformation Holy Emperor. If he still didn’t recognise Ning Cheng’s spirit technique as one of the Seven Bridges, he didn’t deserve to be the head of Bei Clan.
A tiny Dao Sculpting Holy Emperor had such horrendous means. The mole he thought he could kill with ease had now exterminated his Bei Clan.
He regretted that he got caught up in his greed for the Empyrean Consciousness Transmutation Pill. At this moment, his regret could even fill up the Grand Essence Sea. What was the use of having the Empyrean Consciousness Transmutation Pill if there was no Bei Clan left? How could a man who dared kill even Man Jiuren fear his Bei Clan?
“Die for me…..” Bei Qianhai brought out his weapons. Even though he hadn’t stepped onto the Bridge of Coping, the Bridge of Coping’s gloomy winds had still affected him.
The three Dao Raising Holy Emperors who had stepped onto the Bridge of Coping instantly came to their senses under Bei Qianhai’s miserable cry of sorrow. They immediately turned around to step away from the Bridge of Coping the moment Bei Qianhai’s weapon came out.
After stepping onto the Bridge of Coping, how could Ning Cheng allow these three Dao Raising Holy Emperors to walk out? He didn’t hesitate to cast Law Break and also blasted out with a dozen Time Wheels.
Under Law Break’s effects, these three Dao Raising Holy Emperors suddenly came to a stop. But before they could even reflect on what had happened, Time Wheels blasted onto them one after another.
“Boom…..” A bright and dazzling light blasted onto Ning Cheng’s chest. However, Ning Cheng didn’t care and continued to cast Time Wheels one after another.
Even if he ended up facing Bei Qianhai alone, he couldn’t let these Dao Raising Holy Emperors come out to help.
“Pfft…..” By the time another ray of light pierced through his chest, the three Dao Raising Holy Emperors still on the Bridge of Coping got swept away into the river of blood under the bombardment of Time Wheels. Not a single trace of them remained.
The Bridge of Coping then issued a clicking sound and also disappeared without a trace.
Ning Cheng spat out a mouthful of blood, swallowed a few pills, and coldly looked at Bei Qianhai in front of him.
At this moment, in the entire Bei Clan’s main hall and mansion, only Bei Qianhai remained alive. The rest had turned into nutrition for the river of blood under the Bridge of Coping.
Bei Qianhai remained uninjured because Ning Cheng didn’t have the strength to deal with Bei Qianhai and the rest simultaneously.
Bei Qianhai’s body visibly trembled, and his eyes turned red as if made out of blood. At this moment, he didn’t need to say anything at all. Ning Cheng had massacred countless disciples of his Bei Clan with the Bridge of Coping. How could he willingly stop without drawing out Ning Cheng’s soul and lighting him up?
A colossal red tower filled with killing intent had started to coalesce above Bei Qianhai’s head. As the power within it grew stronger, it felt as if everything around him seemed to have come under Bei Qianhai’s control. No, not seemingly, but truly under Bai Qianhai’s control.
He understood that Ning Cheng was a powerful body-forging expert. Otherwise, those two light rays would have turned Ning Cheng into nothingness. Now that he was the only one alive of his Bei Clan, he would definitely not kill Ning Cheng so simply. He wanted to suppress Ning Cheng and skin him alive and then refine his soul in the soul refining lamp.
“Realm Suppressing Tower…… Suppress him……” With a guttural roar, Bei Qianhai erupted. The ghastly pressure from the red tower above his head suddenly increased a hundredfold. Even Ning Cheng found it hard to breathe under such intense pressure.
Ning Cheng’s domain had already wrapped around Yan Ji, protecting her from any harm. He also understood that those two light rays would have smashed him into dust if he wasn’t a body refining expert.
Bei Qianhai was a Dao Transformation Holy Emperor, and now it seemed that Bei Qianhai was stronger than him. Plus, his Second Bridge of Looking Homewards hadn’t solidified yet. Therefore, even if he brought it out, he might not be able to kill Bei Qianhai. Maybe if he was a late-stage Dao Sculpting cultivator, he could fight against Bei Qianhai, but not right now. In any case, Ning Cheng didn’t want to waste too much time in Bei Clan’s territory.
What’s more, there was another reason he couldn’t stay here for long. That is, that previous clash had also severely injured him.
Seeing Bei Qianhai’s red tower crashing down, Ning Cheng, who appeared bound, suddenly made a bizarre but soft gesture, Law Break.
At this moment, the solidified space around him suddenly started to move freely. In the same instant, a long black arrow emerged, and a five-coloured longbow coalesced around it. Although two different objects, the bow felt as if it was a natural part of the arrow.
As soon as the long arrow emerged, the killing intent permeating the area increased exponentially, quickly turning the space into something resembling a killing field. At the same instant, the body of the arrow started to glow with five colours.
An unknown chill ran down Bei Qianhai’s back. To his horror, he found that this long arrow had already locked him in place, and he couldn’t even move a muscle. A moment later, a terrifying aura of death filled the air, completely enveloping his mind and soul.
