Chapter 2552: The Sacred Land of the Wulvers
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
If he could not get help from the deities, he could only seek out an Array Master on par with the Hand of the World or an Archsaint Array Master.
Blackie was ultimately the best choice.
Unfortunately, it was taken away by the Dragon Lord.
‘Someone with the ability of the Hands of the World and an Archsaint Array Master is a rare existence.. I can’t possibly cooperate with Bai Qing’er.’ Just as he thought of this, Zhang Ruochen shook his head.
Bai Qing’er was an Archsaint Array Master, and Duan Lingfeng of the Enchanteur Chamber was also the Hand of the World. However, they were too powerful and ambitious. If he worked with them, not only would he have to worry about being eliminated by them, but he would also have to worry about attracting the wrath of the entire Infernal Court.
After thinking for a long time, Zhang Ruochen came up with a few strategies, but they were all quite inappropriate for the situation.
Ji Fanxin opened her eyes again and said, “I felt some responses, but it will take a long time to find the exact location of the Fane of Origin. Should we set off now?”
Zhang Ruochen shook his head slightly and said, “All the major forces are watching me now. I can’t get away from them.”
Ji Fanxin pointed to the stone door of the ancient tower and said, “You can leave from here.”
“Sikong the Elder and Sikong the Younger are still in the sacred land of Terra Demons,” Zhang Ruochen said.
“Just take them with you.”
Zhang Ruochen shook his head again, “Once they leave the eyes of the watchers, my escape will be exposed instantly. If I slip away now, anyone with sense will know that I’m going to find the Fane of Origin!
“At that time, not only will the Saints of the major forces search for me, but even the deities will take action. Do you think we can reach the Fane of Origin without anyone knowing?”
Ji Fanxin said, “I thought you should have all-powerful might in the Infernal Court. How can such a small predicament affect you?”
Zhang Ruochen smiled. “It’s not impossible to escape by force, but that is the worst plan.”
“What’s the best plan?” Ji Fanxin asked.
Zhang Ruochen said, “Plan before you act and be fully prepared. After that, it’s still not too late to go to the Fane of Origin.”
Ji Fanxin’s eyes lit up. “Do you actually know where the Fane of Origin is?”
Zhang Ruochen said frankly, “I do know something about it, but I haven’t had the chance to confirm yet. I don’t know whether it’s true or not. I trust the Fairy’s perception more.”
“What do you need to prepare?” Ji Fanxin asked.
Zhang Ruochen said, “I need an expert in arrays.”
“How high should that array master’s level be?”
“At least on par with the level of the Hand of the World.”
Ji Fanxin fell silent and shook her head gently.
Typically, it was usual that some inferior macroworlds did not even have a High-Saint Master.
Qianrui Realm was one of the top 100 powerful macroworlds in the Southern Universe, but it still did not have an array master who reached the level of the Hand of the World. Of course, there was once a Divine Array Master in the Qianrui Realm, but he had left for the Jadeite Realm.
After a moment of silence, Zhang Ruochen suddenly thought of something and said, “I do have someone like that in my mind.”
“From the Xue Jue Family?” Ji Fanxin became alert.
After all, if that someone was from the Infernal Court, it would be the same as kicking her out. But the Fane of Origin was where she had to go.
Zhang Ruochen said, “Someone from the Heavenly Realm.”
Ji Fanxin had an incredulous look on her face.
Zhang Ruochen smiled meaningfully and told her the news about Kai Luo in the Royal City of Hundred Clans.
“Are you crazy? The feud between you and the Heavenly Realm in Kunlun is too deep. How dare you go and find Kai Luo? I bet the reason Kai Luo came to the Infernal Court to kill you.” Ji Fanxin said.
Zhang Ruochen said, “It’s true that he came to kill me, but there is no hatred that can not be resolved. What if Kai Luo is willing to help us?”
“You want to convert a cultivator of the Heavenly Realm and dupe him into helping you?” said Ji Fanxin.
Zhang Ruochen said, “Since Kai Luo dared to enter the Infernal Court and escaped from Yan Yu, he must be a brilliant person. He would be suspicious if someone transformed into a cultivator he was unfamiliar with. Similarly, how could someone trick him by transforming into a cultivator he was familiar with?”
Ji Fanxin couldn’t figure out what Zhang Ruochen was up to. She picked up the wine bottle and took a sip. “If you weren’t so generous to me, I would have left you alone and brought the supreme-grade Divine Crystal of Origin to find the Fane of Origin,” she said
Zhang Ruochen said, “I knew you’d never do that. By the way, I want to condense Grade Three Swordsmanship Saintwill. Could you help me with that?”
“What did you say? The Grade Three Swordsmanship Saintwill? A single Saintwill reaching Grade Three?” Ji Fanxin asked.
Zhang Ruochen drank the entire bottle of Blossoms Brew and said, “I have the only Emperor Grade Saintwill Pill since ancient times. If I add your Lotus of Divine Reflection, why can’t I try to break through to Grade Three Swordsmanship Saintwill?”
“You want to eat me?” Ji Fanxin suddenly said.
Zhang Ruochen quickly waved his hand and said, “I don’t need to eat you. As long as you can lend me a hand, it’ll be fine.”
Ji Fanxin’s mind became heavy. She put the veil back on her face.
The more she pondered, the more confused Zhang Ruochen became. He said, “There’s no need to overthink. Just turn into your true form and let me sit to cultivate for a while.”
Unexpectedly, Ji Fanxin rejected him and said, “No way.”
Zhang Ruochen was slightly stunned. After a while, he asked in confusion, “What happened to our friendship? Are you not willing to help me with such a small favor?”
Ji Fanxin stood up with her back to Zhang Ruochen. She seemed to be thinking carefully.
After a long time, she waved her hand, “Go away,” she said. “How can you condense a single Grade Three Saintwill? Even if I can help you, your current attainments in Swordsmanship are far from being adequate for it. It wont be too late to wait till after you cultivate the Heaven Sword Soul.”
‘Are all women so fickle?’
Since Ji Fanxin had already made it clear she did not want to do it, Zhang Ruochen was tactful. He waved his hand at Moyin and left.
He looked back and saw Ji Fanxin’s beautiful figure under the blood-red tree. She looked like an ethereal faity in a painting.
Among the women Zhang Ruochen had seen with that ethereal quality, the Moon Goddess ranked first, and Ji Fanxin ranked second. Moreover, Ji Fanxin was even more delicate.
He walked out of the gravestones and went to the Ghostwood Manor.
Moyin said, “Master, do you really get it, or are you trying to pretend?”
“What are you talking about?” Zhang Ruochen asked.
Moyin said, “After a flower attains a human form, everything will be different! Yet, you want to enter her body in her true form to cultivate? Fortunately, Ji Fanxin valued you as a friend and believed you were clueless. Otherwise, she’d have beaten you up on the spot. Have you seen me launching attack in flower form ever since I attained a human form?”
“Can you explain it more clearly?” Zhang Ruochen did not understand.
Moyin’s bright red lips curled up, and she smiled charmingly. “When we are at a more secluded area, I’ll let Master into my true form for cultivation. You will then understand!”
Zhang Ruochen nodded and suddenly asked, “Have your fourth flower bloomed already?”
“It’s still a flower bud!” Moyin spoke softly and sweetly while hiding a smile.
When Moyin bloomed for the first time, the fruit she produced had an “illusory body,” similar to a human soul.
When she bloomed for the second time, the fruit she bore had a “physical body” like a body of an actual human, but it had fused with the Saint Soul and Sainthood Source of Princess Moran1.
At the third blooming, the fruit she produced had a “Dharmakāya body.” Once she fused with the Dharmakāya body, it was equivalent to cultivating a Paramount physique.
When Moyin left him to aid Ji Fanxin, the Dharmakāya Fruit had already matured and was in the fusing stage.
Inside, Zhang Ruochen had already discovered that her Dharmakāya body had fused successfully.
In other words, Moyin now had the strength of a Paramount Realm Supreme Saint.
The fruit she bloomed for the fourth time was called “Ten Thousand Reincarnations.” Once she fused with Ten Thousand Reincarnations, she could achieve divinity. However, the Saint Devourer was a ferocious plant. Before achieving divinity, there were almost no obstructions in the realm, but it was still perilous for it to survive a Divine Tribulation.
In the past history, there were very few Saint Devourers that could survive the Divine Tribulation and become a God Devourer.
Zhang Ruochen did not immediately return to the Terra Demons’ sacred land. Instead, he went to the stronghold of the Xue Jue Family in the Royal City of Hundred Clans. He sent a cultivator with his seal back to the Dominion of the Bloodysky Clan to invite Supreme Saint Qingsheng over.
No matter what, he had to inform Lord Ming about the significant events at the Fane of Origin.
He couldn’t send ordinary cultivators to relay the message. He had to invite Supreme Saint Qingsheng over first.
Just as Zhang Ruochen was about to return to the Terra Demons’ sacred land, a black-robed man walked into the middle of the street and blocked his way.
Zhang Ruochen was surprised. He stared at the opposite side.
The black-robed man said, “When you went to the Xue Jue Family’s stronghold, you exposed your tracks. Now, there are at least ten groups of cultivators who are watching your every move.”
“Who are you?” Zhang Ruochen asked.
The black-robed man was silent for a moment. “Follow me.”
Zhang Ruochen followed quickly.
They walked on the street with one at the front.
Of course, Zhang Ruochen could sense that many cultivators were watching in the dark. But strangely, the black-robed man seemed to have extraordinary powers. All the stalkers disappeared not long after.
The black-robed man led Zhang Ruochen into a sacred land.
“This is… the sacred land of the Wulvers! Why are we here?”
Zhang Ruochen had never been to the sacred land of the Wulvers, but he saw a lot Wulvers along the way. They were very respectful to the black-robed man. When they passed by, they would bow and even kneel sometimes.
The black-robed man said, “The Wulvers1 originated from Kunlun. Later, they formed their own macroworld and established Wulverom. Unfortunately, during the the battle in the Middle Ages, the Wulvers were framed by the Heavenly Realm and branded as traitors to Kunlun. As a matter of fact, the one who betrayed Kunlun was the Blackdemon Realm,
“100,000 years ago, the Wulvers were almost exterminated by the Heavenly Realm. Wulverom was also destroyed. The remaining Wulvers had no home to return to. They had to flee to the edge of the Infernal Court.”
Hearing this, Zhang Ruochen suddenly stopped. His eyes turned red, and he said in a trembling voice, “Who are you?”
In the Ancient Ruins of Mount Destiny, when this black-robed man named Ki Tian suddenly had appeared and said many strange things to him, Zhang Ruochen already had doubts in his heart.
At this moment, the doubts in his heart had reached their peak and were about to burst out.
