Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 272: Chaos is approaching
After the great calamity, the three people were reunited and stood together.
Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia tightly hugged Ye Chuan, and caressed the face of Ye Chuan inch by inch. She was still worried that this might just be a dream and when she woke up, she would no longer be able to see Ye Chuan again. “Ye Chuan, is that you, are you real?”
“It’s me, I am still alive.”
Ye Chuan also hugged Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia. Under the bombardment of Dragon Slaughtering Calamity, he tenaciously held on his life, but his eyebrows and hair, all were already scorched, moreover, his body had a burned black scar. Those lightning strikes nearly burned him into ashes. Although his current appearance was awkward, hugging Heavenly Maiden, a bad smile appeared on his face as he whispered in the ear of Heavenly Maiden, “With such a beautiful lover and that powerful technique here, how could I leave you? After I die, wouldn’t someone else replace me to cultivate that pair cultivation technique with you?”
Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia tightly hugged Ye Chuan and was about to look up and carefully look at the face of Ye Chuan, but she suddenly turned away, and using her spacious sleeve to cover her face, her shoulders trembled as tears rolled down her cheeks.
Forcibly using that Great Wishing technique, she had burned a large amount of her vitality and life, so, although she was fine, her face was full of wrinkles now and she appeared just like an old woman. She no longer had a beautiful appearance, how could she face Ye Chuan?
“Zixia, what happened?” Ye Chuan embraced Heavenly Maiden. After heavenly calamity, he was too excited and had yet to carefully look at her, so he hadn’t noticed the abnormality of her face.
“Don’t touch me.”
Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia stubbornly faced Ye Chuan with her back, not letting him see her face.
“Fine, if you don’t want me to touch, then I will not touch, I will just hug you.”
Ye Chuan hugged Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia from behind with a bad smile. As for Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia, her face was full of tears and she became all the more sad.
“Big brother Ye Chuan, how did you resist the Dragon Slaughtering Calamity?” Little Long’er changed the subject of conversation and asked curiously.
Dragon Slaughtering Calamity had always been the nightmare of Demonic Dragon Clan. An unknown number of geniuses had died under this great calamity. But, Ye Chuan had yet to refine Demonic Dragon Physique, moreover, he was far worse than the geniuses of Demonic Dragon Clan, still, how was he able to survive this Dragon Slaughtering Calamity?
“Three-tenth preparation, one-tenth strength, six-tenth luck.” Ye Chuan answered.
In the eyes of outsiders, it appeared as if it heavenly calamity appeared suddenly catching Ye Chuan unprepared, but little did they imagined that Ye Chuan had already made preparations a long time ago.
At that time, a furnace suddenly appeared in front of the three people and heat waved surged.
Scorching flames frequently sprang out from this furnace with many ancient runes engraved on it. At first glance, one could tell that this was an extraordinary furnace. Unfortunately, now, there was a crack, and the runes in many places were already incomplete, becoming a piece of scrap.
“Ye Chuan, this…… is this Heaven Burning Furnace?” Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia cried out in alarm. She observed it still covering her face with her sleeve and recognized that this was the defining treasure of her Heavenly Yao Sect.
“Yes, this is Heaven Burning Furnace.”
Ye Chuan nodded his head. Originally, he borrowed Heaven Burning Furnace from Heavenly Yao Sect in order to resolve Cloud Mist Sect’s urgent task given by Da Qin King. And on the other hand, it was also for the preparation of his heavenly calamity. He had yet to thoroughly grasp the profoundness of Cyan Lotus Lamp, so, Heaven Burning Furnace which he had proficiently controlled in his previous life was naturally the best choice.
Merely, even Ye Chuan had never imagined that his heavenly calamity would be so ferocious, even Heaven Burning Furnace, this ancient treasure was cracked opened. “Zixia, I am very sorry, I am afraid now Heaven Burning Furnace is worthless.”
“As long as you are alive, it’s fine.”
Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia comforted Ye Chuan but she was knitting her brows, feeling heavy pressure in her heart.
Heaven Burning Furnace was said to be suppressing the fate of Heavenly Yao Sect, but now, this ancient treasure had unexpectedly become a scrap. This was beyond the expectation of everyone. If this news is sent back to Heavenly Yao Sect, then it will definitely give rise to terrifying waves and everyone will become restless. Moreover, formidable powers outside would definitely come to suppress and attack the Heavenly Yao Sect, and the chaos was unavoidable. This might become a turning point of Heavenly Yao Sect and from then on, it might begin to decline, following the footsteps of Cloud Mist Sect.
“The chaos is approaching, no one will be left alone.”
Ye Chuan muttered and his heart was also heavy.
After the baptism of heavenly calamity, he was more scared than hurt and had broken through to Daoist Master realm, calling himself Heaven Swallowing Daoist Master. Now, his cultivation was completely different from the time when he had just entered the Demonic Dragon Paradise Realm. Within his body, there were still six Heaven Swallowing Talismans, giving him the strength of 108,000 jin, but his physical body was tyrannical. There was a vague sign of him reaching the half-Demonic Dragon Physique, stepping into that legendary half-dragon realm. Now, his explosive power, reaction speed and attacking ability of physical body had clearly risen by a level, and he could use more techniques.
But, even though his cultivation base had risen, the pressure on him had risen even more, so he was unable to become happy.
First of all, there will be the blame of Heavenly Yao Sect. After the news of Heaven Burning Furnace becoming a scrap was transmitted to Heavenly Yao Sect, Heavenly Yao Sect would differently cause an uproar and might even launch an attack. White Haired Heavenly Empress absolutely will not suppress it. Secondly, without Heaven Burning Furnace, it was impossible to complete the task given Da Qin King in time. This will invite the suppression from Da Qin Dynasty, and even mighty Da Qin army might come to attack. Facing the double pressure of both Heavenly Yao Sect and Da Qin Dynasty, no matter how tenacious Cloud Mist Sect was, it might be overwhelmed by the suppression, and at that time, Black Cauldron Sect and Five Style Sect that were eying covetously would not miss this chance to hit a person when he was down.
This was a pressure inside limited extent, since his gaze lied in the entire Wilderness World, even greater pressure will come one after another in the future.
The coming of Demonic Dragon Paradise Realm might be a kind of sign. Perhaps, many ancient paradise realms will gradually appear before the eyes of common people. Even Evil Dragon Abyss that was quiet for millions of years might come into being with a host of demons dancing wildly. Exactly at this time, Da Qin King suppressed all powers under the heaven, and attempted to annex cultivation sects. The collision of secular dynasty and cultivation sects would intensify the chaos without any doubt. On the surface, Da Qin Dynasty was powerful and prosperous, but in secret, nobles were not of one heart. Once Da Qin King’s strategy of annexing cultivating sects fails, this powerful dynasty was bound to fall apart, giving rise to a big chaos of nobles fighting each other for power.
After reincarnating, Ye Chuan had been lying low in Cloud Mist Mountain Range, slowly preserving and nurturing his spirit as well as cultivating his force, but his gaze had always been on the entire Heavenly Fire Continent, and even the entire Wilderness World.
As a once Heaven Concealing Great Sage, he naturally will not stay silent. The arrival of great turmoil not only gave him pressure, it was also a very rare chance. Risks and opportunities had always existed side by side.
Properly handling everything, he could soar and once again stand at the pinnacle of Wilderness World, moreover, from a chess piece, he could turn into a chess player. But the carelessness would consign him to eternal damnation!
“Ye Chuan, I will cover up the secret of Heaven Burning Furnace, but no secret can be kept forever in this world, I also don’t know how long I can hide, there will always be some people who will find some clues. I will think of a way to minimize the effect from Heavenly Yao Sect, I cannot do anything else, so take care of yourself.”
Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia calmed down and warned, then lovingly looking at Ye Chuan, she left, hurrying towards Heavenly Yao Sect. From the beginning to the end, she used her sleeve to cover her face, not allowing Ye Chuan to see her ugly face.
Heaven Burning Furnace became a scrap, this was a very serious matter. She needed to return immediately and do her best to help Ye Chuan resolve the pressure from Heavenly Yao Sect.
“Little Long’er, tell me, what happened to big sister Zixia?” Watching at the back view of Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia that was getting further and further away, Ye Chuan asked Little Long’er.
“Big brother Ye Chuan, big sister Zixia, she……, to help you resist the heavenly calamity, she forcibly used a technique and burned her vitality and life, then all of a sudden……” Little Long’er mumbled.
“All of a sudden, she became a lot older and many wrinkles appeared on her face, isn’t that so?”
Ye Chuan understood and his nose became sour, but his heart felt warm. He wished to immediately catch up and hug her, then gently smooth down every wrinkle of her face.
