Chapter 98: Spirit Treasure Vortex (2)

“My god…” Presently, Xu Yangyi and God Ming were none the wiser that the entire scenic area of the Four Great Joint Pools had seethed over! All mortals were incensed!

They shrieked and were frightened. Just now, the body of an unknown creature, so terrifyingly large, had appeared here all of a sudden! Followingly, two immortal-like men used moves that they could only read about in books, moves that could only be seen in movies! 

“Did anyone take a video?!” 

“What the heck is this?!” 

“I’ll Weibo it later! T-This is an unknown creature!” 

“Are they immortals?!” 

“There’s actually such a thing in this world?!”

Old Zhou and Old Fang stood up before the propped-up digital camcorder, terrified out of their minds. They dared not believe anything that they’d witnessed!

What… was that white tide that filled the sky? What was that giant exploding flower high up in the air? How were these two people able to radiate white light? And even fire?

“T-This isn’t real…” At the volcano mouth of Old Black Mountain, a camping youth kneeled on the ground like he was making a pilgrimage, shuddering from head to toe. “That’s an immortal… A real immortal…” 

Xu Yangyi and God Ming weren’t worried about their surroundings in the slightest. Now that events had reached this stage, how could things be gotten away with! Since power had been displayed before mortals, then let it be displayed! When matters came to a head, bold action was needed. A Core Formation origin crystal couldn’t be let go by any measure! 

God Ming stood among the sword dance of his twenty-plus puppets. With the three-headed demonbeast stationed at the vanguard, his white hair waved about madly, and he suddenly laughed. “I have no time to waste with you…”

“This next blow will send you on your way!”

“Just how I like it.” Xu Yangyi licked his lips. Within his body, a frenzied sensation became stronger and stronger in his qi sea! He had to use his fastest speed to end the battle between the two of them!

Within these five minutes, everything had to come to a close. Two minutes to take the origin crystal, and three minutes to leave.

“God Ming’s Supreme Dao…” God Ming inhaled deeply, the surrounding qi around his body flaring. “Falling Sunlit Cloud Violesence.”

Buzz… In his surroundings, all the puppets were funnels, frantically sucking in the qi in the environment! As for God Ming’s mouth… because of the qi he had absorbed, a thumb-sized bullet of spiritual light had astonishingly formed. Furthermore… it was still progressively becoming larger!

Right now, THIS was his true trump! One of the hidden aces in his hand!

“Ten Cardinals Red Lotus…” Xu Yangyi’s gaze grew solemn. This was the most troublesome person he had encountered in the middle-stage Qi Condensation realm!

At the core of his heart, God Ming took a long sigh. This move was quite fearsome. Extremely fearsome. However, just by barely relying on this technique, he held the confidence to strike down this opponent! Above all… he silently stroked the ring on his middle finger. Inside, he still a Phaseshift Talisman; he had absolute certainty that he would leave here!

His only miscalculation was that during the decryption, such a great matter had surprisingly occurred! He could only willfully take out the tenth coffin, otherwise...

In the next second, his pupils suddenly needled!

“Life Sacrification.” Following these words, God Ming discovered to his shock… that his opponent’s two hands began to burn with raging flames! In an instant, the oscillations of the surrounding qi reached a degree that caused his heart to tremble in fear!

This was Xu Yangyi’s ace! From the beginning until now, Life Sacrification had only been used once in a place that God Ming didn’t see! And thus, this was the winning bullet! 

“Die!” This qi fluctuation forced God Ming’s eyes to bulge in shock and brought his heart to sheer terror! No longer was this within his calculations, his forehead dripping profusely with cold sweat. He had never expected that his opponent would actually be able to raise the might of this divine ability once more!

Followed by God Ming’s furious roar, over twenty balls of spiritual light converged into a skull-sized orb of purple radiance in half a second. Its power was racing thunder manifest as it arced towards Xu Yangyi like electricity! 

Simultaneously, Xu Yangyi waved both of his hands. With a shout… a two-headed fire dragon charged at the light orb!

Twin dragons had left the sea, multiplying their power to exhibit supreme power!

Boom! The two divine abilities collided together. The area tens of meters all around the demon corpse trembled! The charred odor in the air rendered one unable to open their eye! The vigorous eruption of the qi wave caused everyone’s hair to go flying back!

A ray of fiery splendor and the sharp cry of a dragon’s roar burst within both of their hearts. Immediately… all the lakewater came to a boil!

Huuummm… It wasn’t limited to just the lakewater. The pair standing before the corpse’s wound detected… that the entire corpse was rocking! Starting from just moments ago, the three-hundred-meter-plus demon corpse… was swaying ceaselessly! This absolutely couldn’t be the doing of a Qi Condensation divine ability!

“This is…” Xu Yangyi’s gaze twinkled as he looked at the lake bottom. He could sense that these tremors originated from the lake bed! In the next second… Jadewave’s corpse began to swivel about! It seemed an invisible hand was moving it! Xu Yangyi immediately looked towards the lakewater. His eyes abruptly contracted!

At the center of the lakewater… a tremendous vortex… a maelstrom no less than a full 200 meters swiftly took form. At the core of the vortex, a shiver-inducing qi fluctuation began to faintly erupt from within!

At the lake bed, light originally shouldn’t have existed there, but in the vortex, a thousand rays of treasure light ascended! From the blackness… it passed through from the lake bottom that was so deep that the floor couldn’t be seen… dyeing the lake surface an expanse of golden splendor!

Inhaling deeply, Xu Yangyi almost moved instinctually at first yet immediately stopped, standing in place like a nail! This… was the treasury of a thousand-year-old demon… on the precipice of rising to the lake’s surface! Countless spirit stones and spirit treasures, a spiritual tempest birthed by the lost control of spiritual sense!

“No good!” In his mind, God Ming was in a state of great panic. He was just about to make a break towards the shore and flee, but the moment he glanced at Xu Yangyi, a stormy fury reached the zenith in his heart!

Why… are you still not hiding?! If I hide and he doesn’t, wouldn’t I just be handing over the Core Formation origin crystal, a supreme treasure perhaps not even chanced upon once in a thousand years, into his hands?!

Whoever shirked back because of this spiritual tempest… This was tantamount to announcing their elimination! By virtue, only by hiding on the shore could this black hole-like maelstrom be completely exited!

“I… will also not hide!” His eyes nearly flushed red. Cackling miserably, his voice hoarse, God Ming forcibly stood his ground!

At this instant, at the volcanic lake of Old Black Mountain, all cultivators and mortals could see the funnelesque lakewater. Countless shrimps, crabs, and fishes had been stirred into the nexus of this funnel by its imposing natural power. It formed a shiver-inducing black hole of death!

The heart of the black hole seemed to be the gargantuan mouth of a demon. As the terrible qi fluctuations became increasingly distinct, the treasure light below became greater and greater!

Ruuummmbbbleee… Waves of sound like muffled thunder could be heavily heard from underneath. As of now, this volcano, dead for a thousand years… was erupting once again!

RUUMMBLE!!!!!! Three seconds later, a golden spirit spring rose straight into the sky! Its height… was 500 meters! Its width… was 200 meters! It was an earth dragon spewing water! An immortal coalescing a spring! 

This wasn’t the golden color of spring water… but rather the countless magik artifacts, talismans, and medicinal elixirs accompanying the spiritual spring rushing directly into the air! There were hundreds of them, thousands! Ten thousands of them!

Among them, there was even an endless number of spirit stones! They made up a figure that towered by the tens of thousands! Brilliant and scintillating, these stones were a blossom of color, a myriad hues of purple and red! 

It seemed that at this moment, a small crack had split open in the heavens, releasing the vast, butterfly-esque stars that laid within. In the sky, a prismatic rain drifted. Falling down on the earth, it overlooked the startled stars dispersed in color, flying in the sky as the whirling sound of rain arrived!


At this moment, no one present dared to say anything!

Thump… A tourist sluggishly sat down on the grass, his faltering hand dumbly pointed towards the huge fountain.

“T-This is… a miracle…” Somewhere else, there was an old man, his throat dry. Regardless of the two figures on the lake at this moment… or that tremendous monster… and despite the presently flaring kaleidoscopic foundation… Everything was like a dream!

Each mortal had been stunned by the magnificent view before their eyes. Crystalline lakewaters formed a fountain that gushed into the sky. Bending moonlight below, it reflected three shimmering layers, dispersed into a pearl. Amidst it, endless treasures, spirit stones, and even more supreme treasures were flushed out by spring water! It glittered with an enchanting radiance.

Boom! It was unknown which bottle of precious medicine shattered, but an invigorating, delicate fragrance scattered in the air. Simultaneously, a manifestation of a purple flower emerged in the surroundings of the spring waters, like fresh flowers blooming in full at the side of a fountain. 

Bang bang bang… 

Boom boom… Crack crack crack… Countless brittle echoes began to ring out from the several-hundred-meter-tall fountain. A limitless number of pill elixirs, talismans, and magik artifacts transformed into dust among such battering. Afterwards, they became layers upon layers of rainbow brilliance, dyeing the fountain… a display of fireworks and lanterns, fiery trees and silver flowers! 

In the Four Great Joint Pools, Xu Yangyi, God Ming, and everyone else was motionless! They were waiting!

Shing! A sharp sword ruthlessly tore through Xu Yangyi’s left shoulder. Inside the vortex, there was anything and everything! There were pill elixirs, Daomaster Jadewave’s flesh that had ripped and crumbled apart because of the treasury, and all kinds of magik artifacts and talismans! There existed opportunity but also great danger! 

Blood quickly pervaded the maelstrom. Xu Yangyi rigidly clenched his teeth, not saying a word. On his body, stomach, thighs, arms, and shoulders… there were already ten-odd bloody holes. He was so injured that a human shape couldn’t be made out. His sole fortune was that his injuries weren’t fatal. They were nothing more than heavy wounds.

At the center of the vortex, unlimited blades, swords, and armors had been tangled together by qi into a whirlpool formed of lakewater, furling into a barrier of swords! As for Xu Yangyi, he was in the thick of this barrier.

Sharp pain charged into his brain from his whole body. His body had long since been pierced cleanly by the edges of over a dozen magik artifacts! Blood poured without inhibition, yet he still didn’t retreat a single step!

A Core Formation Dao Master’s hidden treasury had become a sky-spouting fountain. Even though the magik artifacts within lacked the control of spiritual force, their piercing level still wasn’t something a Qi Condensation cultivator could endure.

Yet if he gave in, without sacrifice, from where would fortune be obtained! Without abandoning oneself and life, how the hell would a millennium-old origin crystal be struggled for!

He gazed across the vortex. Likewise, God Ming was inside. The other’s injuries were hardly any less severe than his! The puppets had all broken apart, only the three-headed demonbeast was left in control but minus a head! As for God Ming himself, he had transformed into a bloody figure early on. His body arts were inferior to Xu Yangyi’s, and the bloody holes on his body… amounted up to twenty!

Yet his opponent… did not flee, as well!

“Fall back…” God Ming’s throat carried a bloody raspiness, and he grinded his teeth. “I am one of the successors… of God Ming… If you leave here, I will carry your sentiment until the end of time…”

“Fellow Daoist, our Ming Clan is one of the Five Great Demon Clans! You have to think this over clearly… If you leave now, I will bear your sentiment, as if nothing has occurred! However…” He wiped blood at the side of his lip, thirsty for the sanguine fluid. His hair was white, he wore a suit, and he carried a folding fan, yet he simply lacked a single shred of elegance and refinement of his most initial style. 

His teeth grinded audibly as he clenched them. “But as long as you dare continue, you shall be faced with the Ming Clan’s hunt, no rest until death! Ceaseless for all eternity!”
