Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 622: Nan Batian
When the two heavily armored guards were still puzzled and feeling anxious and fearful, Ye Chuan had smoothly returned to Guest Receiving Peak and his spirit and body joined together. As for puppet doll Hei Kui, he had already returned ahead. Although this old devil’s cultivation base was not up to much, he got rid of pursuing troops using his various means. Unfortunately, his cultivation was slow and he was unable to breakthrough, otherwise, he would not be any inferior to Old Demon of Mount Yin and Rain Demon.
In the room, Ye Chuan slowly opened his eyes. His face was pale and weary.
In order to nurture and refine Yinyang Life Wheel, he had used a large amount of vitality, thus his physical body was exhausted. And in Heavenly Yao Hall, the injury to his spirit was also not light. He was almost trapped in that ancient sword formation. He appeared even more exhausted now.
“Your Excellency, did you let out your spirit for the spirit travel?” Rain Demon asked, worried. Plague Archfiend and Diamond Ape King also came. They similarly were also frowning in worries.
Previously, when Ye Chuan’s spirit was nearly shattered by Yinyang Life Wheel, these three were entirely unaware of that situation next door. But, when the old devil Hei Kui hastily returned, it was impossible to keep them in the dark. After learning the matters from the old devil Hei Kui, they were very worried. They even thought to kill all the way to Heavenly Yao Hall to meet Ye Chuan. At the final moment, the assassin Rain Demon stopped everyone, recalling the instruction of Ye Chuan.
With the absence of Nan Tiandu and Old Demon of Mount Yin, Rain Demon, this Peak Daoist Master realm assassin, vaguely became the leader among the remaining three. His calm and composed way to deal with matters and rich experience made him gain the confidence of these two super experts.
“Yes, I went to Heavenly Yao Peak and successfully entered Heavenly Yao Hall. Unfortunately, Heavenly Yao Sect is too tricky to deal with, and there was no treasure inside.”
Ye Chuan smiled. He didn’t intend to speak more in front of Rain Demon and others.
Although the followers around him were powerful, there was something that needed to be solved personally. Thus, speaking more was unprofitable and only make them worry.
“Your Excellency, didn’t you fear encountering Heavenly Yao Sect’s peak experts?”
Rain Demon shook his head with a bitter smile. He knew that there must be a reason for Ye Chuan to take a risk to go to Heavenly Yao Peak, but since Ye Chuan didn’t speak, he also didn’t ask, merely, admired the guts of Ye Chuan.
Immediately upon entering the room, he had noticed that Ye Chuan was different from before, although he seemed exhausted, he vaguely felt as if his cultivation had progressed, but, upon sensing carefully, he discovered that Ye Chuan was still in Peak Daoist Master realm, had yet to breakthrough to Half Sage realm, this made him puzzled. He was unable to see through Ye Chuan’s real cultivation realm. With Ye Chuan’s current ability, he could sweep through the experts of the same realm, but what kind of place was Heavenly Yao Sect? It was a grand cultivation overlord claimed to be the first under heaven. Experts could be found everywhere. In such a place, sending out the spirit in board daylight, if he had accidentally encountered any Half Sage realm expert of Heavenly Yao Sect, then wouldn’t that be tantamount to delivering himself to their doorstep?
Spirit travel had always been the most vulnerable state for cultivators. The higher the cultivation base, the more cautious one would be to use spiritual travel. If one’s spirit was accidentally caught, then it would be refined into a supplement pill for other people. There were some great devils who did this specifically, devouring the other people’s spirits. In other people’s territory, what’s more, in the territory of Heavenly Yao Sect, this kind of cultivation overlord, dared to use spirit travel in broad daylight, he feared only Ye Chuan would dare to do so!
“It’s not about afraid or not afraid, merely worth it or not. If facing the danger of suffering the loss of a hundred years efficacy to the spirit has a chance to increase a thousand years efficacy, then these kinds of risks are absolutely worth the danger! In life, no matter what you do, the path of cultivation, or average farmer, blacksmith, or government official career, all, in fact, is a choice and taking risks. Whether risks are worth it or not, whether they could achieve some kind of achievement in the end depends on the individual.”
Ye Chuan paused, and said, “I am a little tired, you all can leave now. Remember, don’t easily go out unless there is a special situation. In addition, let me know after Rhodes returns.”
Ye Chuan spoke and slowly closed his eyes, beginning to recover his strength. This was to prepare for the next move.
Rain Demon and others bowed and withdrew quietly, not daring to disturb Ye Chuan any longer. The old devil Hei Kui also bowed and transforming into a wisp of cyan light, entered into Cyan Lotus Space in Ye Chuan’s body. The room quickly became quiet again. Ye Chuan calmed down and quickly entered the cultivation state to recover.
At night, when the darkness shrouded the earth, a segment of the grand sacrifice competition finally came to an end.
The sounds of knocking on the door woke up Ye Chuan. And upon hearing his response, a thin figure entered.
Old Demon of Mount Yin who had just returned hastily came to report the situation to Ye Chuan, “Your Excellency, I am back.”
“How’s the result today?” Ye Chuan asked.
“Kakaka, the result is pretty good.”
Old Demon of Mount Yin laughed and excitedly said, “Today, Nan Tiandu entered the stage four times, and he even won three matches straight. In the beginning, upon seeing Nan Tiandu entered the stage with the alias of Nan Batian and declaring that there was no one that could match him in the entire south sea, all the onlookers laughed at him. But, soon, they were unable to laugh. Including an elite disciple of Heavenly Yao Sect, Nan Tiandu flattened his opponents in one hit. And now, everyone is aware of the originally unknown Bellowing Waves Sect. All say that Bellowing Waves Sect is an overlord of the south sea, kakaka……”
Recalling the great competition of today, Old Demon of Mount Yin laughed heartily as if the one who took the stage and not Nan Tiandu, rather himself, this millennium old evil spirit.
“Good, what a good no match throughout the entire south sea!”
Ye Chuan also laughed. Without Old Demon of Mount Yin recounting in detail, he could imagine the appearance of Nan Tiandu jumping into the stage. He was a dignified Half Sage realm expert, if he was defeated, then that would be unnatural. “Didn’t you say he entered the stage four times, how come he only win three matches?”
“As for the final match, upon seeing Nan Tiandu standing on the stage with his sword, no one dared to go on the stage, kakaka…”
Old Demon of Mount Yin laughed. In today’s competition, Nan Tiandu greatly showed-off on the stage. But, Old Demon of Mount Yin’s contributions also cannot go unnoticed. Nan Tiandu’s Cyan Dragon Moon Blade was already frightening enough, as a result, Old Demon of Mount Yin thought of a way to change its look, making it appear even more terrifying. In addition, with the powerful cultivation base and innate strength of Nan Tiandu, his opponents were scared out of their wits and no one dared to step onto the stage. The reputation of Nan Batian rapidly spread and no one dared to laugh at him.
“Well, good job, continue doing so, the more arrogant the better, create even more commotion in the final match!”
Ye Chuan nodded his head. He was somewhat looking forward to the final match of the Grand Sacrifice Competition.
This time, in Heavenly Yao Sect’s Grand Sacrifice Competition, many sects had come to participate with their genius disciples. But, with Nan Tiandu’s cultivation base and extraordinary strength, Ye Chuan believed that Nan Tiandu would reach the final match for sure. The first day had already attracted so many people, the final match would definitely be even more brilliant. When Nan Tiandu’s name spread widely to every corner of Heavenly Yao Sect, and when the final match was pushed to the limit, could White Haired Heavenly Empress Zhao Tianbi continue to stay in seclusion?
Ye Chuan didn’t care about the final victory of this grand sacrifice competition, whether they would be able to lure out Heavenly Empress or not so that he could sneak into Heavenly Yao Hall to seize Heaven Concealing Umbrella, then forcibly break into Heavenly Yao Cave to save Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia was important!
Today, on the surface, just ancient sword formation inside Heavenly Yao Hall prevented Ye Chuan’s spirit from seizing Heaven Concealing Umbrella, but the one who truly shrouded Ye Chuan’s heart was still White Haired Heavenly Empress Zhao Tianbi. Without a means to draw her out, it would be much more dangerous.
“Kakaka, okay, the more commotion the better. But, the opponents are getting more and more difficult to deal with. Allegedly, Nan Tiandu will encounter a powerful opponent tomorrow, Heavenly Yao Sect’s elite disciple, Ouyang Huo!” Old Demon of Mount Yin frowned with some worries. Although Nan Tiandu was powerful, in order to avoid being too shocking, he had been hiding his true strength. Meanwhile, his opponents, however, were getting more and more powerful. Tomorrow, he had to fight against that ferocious Ouyang Huo, could he still obtain an easy win while concealing his strength?
“Ouyang Huo? That fellow who calls himself Bone Cracking Crazy Demon?”
Ye Chuan was somewhat surprised and became a little solemn. The cultivation base of that fellow Ouyang Huo was not high, but his means were ferocious and he was by no means inferior to some great devils. His moves were sinister and ruthless, how can Nan Tiandu deal with him while concealing his strength as well as a big killing weapon?
This unexpected news made Ye Chuan worried, but he was also looking forward a little.
This competition was getting more interesting than expected. It was also far less easy and simple than imagined.
