Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 131: War Sacrificial Altar
“Protector Yang, hello (Ni hao =lit. You good), we meet again, it seems, we are really destined.” Ye Chuan said with a smile. There was no trace of solemnness.
The trip to Heavenly Yao Sect of this time bode ill rather than well, and wanting to complete the task was even harder than reaching the sky. All ordinary disciples were nervous and solemn, but Ye Chuan looked relaxed.
Looking at smiling Ye Chuan, Protector Yang Tian Kuang nevertheless pulled a long face, he wanted to cry but there was no tear. He felt that the misfortune of his lifetime had suddenly increased, and now, he was thoroughly out of luck. Last time, he had to lead the group to participate in Great Competition of three sects. And this time, he had to lead Ye Chuan to Heavenly Yao Sect. Within the entire sect, who was more unlucky than him?
Yang Tian Kuang stretched his mouth giving a forced smile, after Great Competition, he had looked Ye Chuan with new eyes and somewhat recognized his worth, but now with the present situation, he honestly was unable to laugh.
Heavens shows pity, he was named Yang Tian Kuang, but in truth, he wasn’t wild (Kuang) at all, he was very honest and low-keyed person. And because he was too honest, he had to accept the tasks that other people avoided many times. He didn’t know whether Ye Chuan could cause millennium disaster now or not, but Ye Chuan had indeed caused him enough disaster! Last time in Great Competition, he had turned defeat into victory, and was able to escape unscathed, but what about this time?
Yang Tian Kuang was heavy-hearted, his complexion was gloomy. And restraining for a long time, he spoke out two words very stiffly: “No good.”
“Protector Yang, are you worried about Heavenly Yao Sect?”
Ye Chuan patted the shoulder of Yang Tian Kuang and said: “Rest assured, you only need to show the way, nothing more, no-one will make things difficult for you, even if we died, I will be the first to die.”
Yang Tian Kuang suddenly stopped his steps, and looking at calm and composed Ye Chuan, his heart was moved.
Honest people were not good at expressing, he didn’t know what he should say, but these simple words of Ye Chuan made him admire this youngster who was the entire generation younger than him from his heart.
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, Big Senior Apprentice-Brother……”
A familiar voice resounded from behind, Ye Chuan turned his head and saw fatty Zhao Dazi was chasing after him. He had a big bag on his back. After he arrived over, he said while panting: “Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, Miss Jiajia ordered me to accompany you.”
“Fatty, this time is different from the Great Competition of three sects, aren’t you afraid that you will be gone forever?” Ye Chuan asked.
“I’m afraid, even Third Elder, that old man is afraid of death, who isn’t afraid?”
Fatty Zhao Dazhi saw gloomy complexion Yang Tian Kuang and felt slightly better in his heart, as he found a person with similar distress, “But, if you don’t agree and I returned back now, then Miss Jiajia will strangle me to death. So, junior apprentice-brother, I have to follow you. Big Senior apprentice-brother, I place this little one’s life, and entrust the latter half of my life to you, you must be responsible.”
Fatty Zhao Dazhi had an expression as if a girl who was pledging to marry.
“Pei, I am not interested in men, damned fatty, stay far away from me.”
Ye Chuan took a step away, and although he was cursing verbally, but his heart was warm. Following him even after knowing this trip bode ill rather than well, fatty really was his real brother.
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, Miss Jiajia said that, you are responsible for her, and hereafter you must not disappoint her feeling.” Fatty Zaho Dazhi said in dead earnest.
The affection of Zhu Sijia towards Ye Chuan, even fool could perceive. Fatty wasn’t a fool, on the contrary was very cunning, he had already seen through the unusualness of Zhu Sijia. Not even in a dream had he thought that, after falling in love, energetic and unruly Zhu Sijia would also become so considerate. Unfortunately, that person wasn’t him, and he could only look at Ye Chuan with envy while lamenting why he didn’t have a life like his.
“Fatty, what are you saying? Don’t treat this senior apprentice-brother like yourself, I do not understand what you are saying.”
Ye Chuan shook his head, pretending to not understand, and secretly increased his pace.
A group of three people walked faster and faster, before long, they arrived at a small valley behind Cloud Mist Hall, and a huge ancient high platform appeared in front of their eyes.
This high platform was no less than 8 kilometer in diameter, and the entire platform was built with unknown boulders. And profound ancient Great Sage inscription was carved on those boulders. Across these thousands of kilometers wide place, thick ancient and majestic aura engulfed everything. Looking from afar, a fighting spirit automatically surged in the heart of people, and as if they were in an ancient battlefield, surrounded by thousands upon thousands of men and horses, dense killing intent directly rushed against their face.
“This is the War Sacrificial Altar, legend says that, our Cloud Mist Sect’s founder used his Great Sage technique to personally move this back from the end of time and space. Even to this day, this is the biggest and most ancient War sacrificial Altar in Da Qin Dynasty and even in the entire Heavenly Fire Continent. On it, countless experts had battled, and used their blood and life to perform most ferocious collision!”
Protector Yang Tian Kuang’s voice came. His tone contained a deep sense of pride.
Cloud Mist Sect with long inheritance had many things that made disciples have a proper sense of pride. There were many peaks, majestic palaces, ancient repositories and Weaponry Pavilion……, everything had extensive momentum, but the most shocking thing was still this War Sacrificial Altar with a long history in front of their eyes. Legend says that, very long time ago, this place was the place where peak super experts of Wilderness World had done battle, and was the Holy Land where the competition between Sage realm experts was held.
At that time, Cloud Mist Sect was at its most flourishing state. Unfortunately, such days were gone never to return, and now, Cloud Mist Sect wasn’t even able to activate this huge monster. So now, this matchless War Sacrificial Altar left behind by their founder Ghost Hand Medicinal King was accumulating dust.
Fatty Zaho Dazhi was dumbstruck, although it was not his first time seeing this War Sacrificial Altar, but his heart still shook. And seeing this, his heart was filled with pride: “Yes, this is War Sacrificial Altar, Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, you see……”
After a good while, fatty wanted to tell many tales relating to War Sacrificial Altar to Ye Chuan, but when he turned around, there was no one beside him, he discovered that Ye Chuan was no longer around him.
When fatty was being shocked in his heart, Ye Chuan had already arrived at the side of War Sacrificial Altar. Reaching out his hand, he used a fingertip to lightly touch boulder’s Great Sage Inscription.
After millions of years, people only knew that this ancient War Sacrificial Altar was moved back from the end of time and space by Cloud Mist Sect’s founder Ghost Hand Medicinal King, but perhaps, other than Ye Chuan no one knew the story of behind the scene. At that time, if it was not for him alone fighting against other 13 Great Sages of Fierce Chaotic Domain, would Ghost Hand Medicinal King be able to seize the opportunity to capture this ancient altar?
“Sage battle, bloody altar……”
Ye Chuan muttered to himself, and with his fingertip streaking across the Great Sage Inscription, the familiar feeling of showing disdain for the world rose in his heart. This moment, it seemed as if the time and space had returned to millions upon millions years ago, returning to the era of Heaven Concealing Great Sage where he had no match under the heaven. Fatty and Protector Yan Tian Kuang who was standing some kilometers away suddenly had an illusion as if Ye Chuan had changed into the part of this ancient altar, and this ancient altar had changed into the part of Ye Chuan, and making no distinction between this and that, both emitted ancient majestic aura.
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, what are you saying?”
Fatty Zhao Dazhi’s heartbeat accelerated without any reason, and he mustered his courage to walk over to Ye Chuan.
“Nothing, let’s go.”
Ye Chuan turned around, then indifferently walked over to the nearby ancient transmission formation. Then with a flash of cyan light, all three of them disappeared, activating the ancient transmission formation towards Heavenly Yao Sect.
Just after three people left, a mysterious woman quietly arrived at this valley, then walking over to the side of War Sacrificial Altar, she looked and suddenly her heart quivered. The altar which was accumulating the dust had revealed a clear, deep sunken handprint, which was clearly left behind a long, a very long time ago, but strangely it became visible again.
“Heavenly Yao Sect, Ye Chuan?”
This mysterious woman paused, then looking at the ancient transmission formation with radiance circulating around it not far away from her, she muttered, and left quietly. She came and went without alarming any guards of Cloud Mist Sect, merely left behind moist footprints.
