Book 12, Immortal Destiny, Chapter 7 – It Must Be Love

Ji Ning’s soul was comparable to many Earth Immortals and Loose Immortals, and [Soldiers of the Mind] was even more formidable than the [Soulslayer Art] technique. The power of his assault…it was so great that both the black-robed man and the silver-haired woman felt their souls rumble as they were sent into a dazed state. Only the silver-robed youth was dazed momentarily before immediately regaining consciousness.

“Not good.” The silver-robed youth was shocked. “Even I passed out for a moment; how can junior apprentice-brother and junior apprentice-sister withstand that?”

However, at this moment, he could not do anything for the two of them, because Ning was pouncing towards him.

“Who on earth is this person? He is so powerful that just by using a divine will attack, he was able to set me back?” The silver-robed youth’s heart clenched, and he didn’t dare to be the least bit overconfident. He hadn’t been able to recognize Ning, who had only used a single lotus technique so far.

“Your divine will attacks are formidable, but I refuse to believe that you are that formidable in actual combat as well.” A cold look flashed through the eyes of the silver-robed youth. “Die!”

BAM! The power of the enormous, three hundred meter long greatsword was now completely focused on the tip, where black and white light had joined together to form a strand of golden sword-light. The silver-robed youth had already poured all of his power into this attack. A powerful soul might be stem from a person’s birth; although the black-haired youth that was pouncing towards him had a powerful soul, he didn’t necessarily have a high level of insight into the Dao.

“Die!” The charging Ning showed no mercy at all. The layers of the Waterflame Lotus swiveling around him blocked the massive sword, which repeatedly hacked against it but was firmly stopped.

A cold light flashed through Ning’s eyes.

Divine ability – [Starseizing Hand]!

CLANK! The Darknorth sword in Ning’s hand instantly lit out a brilliant flash of sword-light, and with a massive boom, it collided against and actually knocked that enormous enemy sword flying. As for Ning, after the sword in his left hand knocked the massive sword flying, he immediately used the [Windwing Evasion] technique to arrive in front of the silver-robed youth.

The silver-robed youth was tremendously shocked. He couldn’t believe that his most powerful technique had been knocked away by a single sword blow. He was one of the most elite of geniuses within his school! He no longer had the courage to fight against Ning, and he immediately produced dozens of talismans and threw them all away.

He had given up his talismans and was planning to flee.

It must be understood that the Brightmoon Diagram of the Mountains and Rivers was a Pure Yang magic treasure; naturally, it had a soul as well. There was no way that Ning and the others could deceive the spirit of the Diagram as to how many talismans they had. They had to throw out all of their talismans in order to be teleported away.


Ning’s sword-light had already arrived in front of the silver-robed youth. Clang! The silver-robed youth used both his earthfire and his chains, striving to buy himself just a single moment of time.


Ning’s sword-light was like an attack unleashed by one of those ancient, primordial Fiendgods. It possessed an utterly shocking power that shattered the earthfire and sent the chains flying. The body of the silver-robed youth, when struck, was instantly turned into pulp. Blood sprayed everywhere, along with chunks of flesh and bits of bone, but even as it sprayed everywhere, it was completely vaporized in midair by the terrifying sword-ki.

It was all too fast!

Although the silver-robed youth had already thrown away the talismans…there was an extremely short window of time between the talismans being thrown away and himself being teleported away. In a true, close quarters battle, that window of time was enough for Ning to attack ten more times with his sword!

Ning felt hatred for these three for daring to act against his senior apprentice-sister, and so he showed no mercy at all. In addition, the silver-robed youth truly was quite powerful; without using the [Starseizing Hand], Ning would only at most be able to seize an advantage; he wouldn’t be able to cause the foe to completely collapse at all. He had to use his [Starseizing Hand], and use overwhelming raw power to deal with this foe!



The two enormous phoenixes of fire and ice struck against the bodies of the other two temporarily stunned Adepts. Although the stunning effect was only for a short moment, Yu Wei was a true expert as well; she naturally seized the chance to immediately change from defending to attacking as she sent her phoenix of fire and her phoenix of ice to separately attack the black-robed man and the silver-haired woman, instantly killing the two!

Yu Wei then turned her head, looking at the black-robed youth who was 54 meters tall, crackling with lightning, and who had a vertical eye-slit in his forehead. She was both excited and nervous.

“Senior apprentice-sister.” Ning’s third eye closed. The lightning around his body vanished. He returned to the size of a normal person.

“Junior apprentice-brother.” Yu Wei spoke out as well, and her eyes glistened like jewels.


The main hall of the Skylight Palace.

“Those three are disciples of my Heavenly Silkworm Sect. That black-robed woman is almost finished; yet another is going to be a slain and vanquished corpse of my Heavenly Silkworm Sect.” An extremely skinny and shriveled Celestial Immortal was laughing smugly right now. Normally, when in front of their own disciples, these individuals would maintain the majestic decorum expected of a Celestial Immortal. Here, however, in front of all of these other Celestial Immortals, they would revealed his true personality, acting with abandon. When it was time to be smug, they would be smug; when it was time to mock, they would mock.

“That black-robed maiden is quite formidable as well. Look at those two techniques of hers; one is a phoenix of fire, the other a phoenix of ice. As I see it, she has absolutely mastered two complete Dao-Paths.” Next to the first Celestial Immortal was a laughing fat man whose robe was open, revealing his chest.

“Right. She has mastered two complete Dao-Paths. That’s the only reason why she was able to hold off the attacks of three of my sect’s disciples for a period of time,” the skinny, shriveled Celestial Immortal said confidently.

“Do you know which school the black-robed maiden comes from?” The bare-chested fat Immortal asked.

“No idea.” The wizened Celestial Immortal shook his head. “Who knows what minor sect she’s from? Major sects naturally sent quite a few disciples, who would usually travel in pairs or trios.”

The fat Immortal’s eyes suddenly lit up. “Help has arrived.”

The shriveled Celestial Immortal’s eyes narrowed. He, too, saw that within the enormous Diagram, a black-robed youth had suddenly appeared to assist the black-robed maiden being attacked by those three Adepts of his.

The black-robed youth was ridiculously powerful. He instantly defeated the three, as easily though he were bursting through rotting wood, and in the end all three died.

“Hmph.” The shriveled Celestial Immortal couldn’t help but frown. He slammed his wineglass against the table, appearing to be quite vexed.

“Bahaha, didn’t you say the black-robed maiden was going to die?” The chubby Celestial Immortal began to laugh loudly.

In truth, Celestial Immortals like them didn’t care too much about the deaths of these geniuses; after all, geniuses came every three centuries. Their deaths were minor matters. However, when so many Celestial Immortals were gathered together, they naturally hoped that the disciples of their school would be outstanding and earn some face for them from their peers.

But of course…that was just a matter of face.


The thousand Celestial Immortals down below were chatting amongst themselves. Up high, the Xia Emperor and the other eight Pure Yang True Immortals were chatting as well.

“Look there!” Lu Dongbin’s eyes suddenly lit up as he pointed towards a corner of the Diagram. “Look at the black-robed girl being attacked by those three. A black-robed youth appeared next to them. Look, quick! See that look in the black-robed girl’s eyes? That look in her eyes that instantly appeared when she looked at the black-robed youth…bahaha, a gaze that is extremely complicated, as though long-suppressed emotions were instantly unleashed! Although it was only for an instant, I daresay that this black-robed woman must have fallen in love!”

“Fallen in love?” The Xia Emperor, the Bodhisattva of Great Strength, Sovereign Hao, the Immortal Elder of the Northlands…they all were completely speechless.

They had followed Lu Dongbin’s pointing finger to watch, and they had been paying attention to Ning who had exploded with power. Who would’ve thought that Lu Dongbin, however, was paying attention to the look in Yu Wei’s eyes?

“That gaze…ahaha…it was really…not only has this woman fallen in love, I daresay that she’s never confessed it to this black-robed youth before.” Lu Dongbin swept his gaze across the other True Immortals, then laughed smugly, “Any of you want to bet with me on this?”

The Xia Emperor and the others exchanged glances, all feeling quite resigned.

“Senior apprentice-brother Xiamang, that black-robed youth of yours is rather formidable,” Emperor Hao congratulated.

The Xia Emperor laughed. “The black-robed youth is named Ji Ning. He numbers amongst the few dozen most famous figures participating in this Conclave of Immortal Destiny. His Primaltwin has even killed a Loose Immortal.”

“Oh?” The True Immortals present all nodded, but to them, killing a Loose Immortal was an extremely minor matter. They naturally wouldn’t pay too much attention to it. What they cared more about was if any of the many geniuses present at this Conclave would become one of the powerful experts of the Three Realms in the future. And if so…who would it be?

“One of the few dozen most famous? He lives up to the reputation.” The Bodhisattva of Great Strength smiled and praised him.

They actually didn’t feel that Ning was particularly outstanding; after all, in the past five days of the Conclave, quite a few members of the hundred thousand-plus competitors had revealed astonishing levels of power. They were all Wanxiang Adepts, but had been capable of exploding forth with power comparable to an ordinary Loose Immortal’s…and in fact, there were two Wanxiang Adept monsters who had comprehended five complete Dao-Paths.

Comprehended five Dao-Paths? Even this wasn’t enough to shock the Pure Yang True Immortals present.

This was because they felt that it wasn’t too shocking for some peerless geniuses to have mastered five complete Dao-Paths after having spent three hundred years at the Wanxiang level, all for the purpose of surprising everyone at this Conclave.

Pure Yang True Immortals like them…they were major figures of the Three Realms, and so naturally their vision was quite broad. If one looked at the Three Realms as a whole, it was indeed not rare for competitors with five mastered Dao-Paths to appear at the Conclave.

“That little lass is quite interesting, quite interesting.” Lu Dongbin was rather intrigued now, and he laughed in a self-congratulating manner, “Yep…that black-robed maiden’s been hiding her feelings all along. I wonder when she will voice them?”

The nearby Xia Emperor and the others just pretended not to hear anything.

Everyone knew that what Lu Dongbin loved to do was play matchmaker. This was one of his favorite hobbies, and in fact, stories about him playing matchmaker were extremely common throughout the Three Realms. They could tell that Lu Dongbin was feeling the impulse to do so once more. He might add a bit of ‘spice’ into the relationship between the black-robed maiden and the black-robed youth.


Ninelotus sat in the lotus position behind the Dongyan Forefather. Her head had been raised this entire time as she stared at the Diagram. She was mainly paying attention to the six disciples sent by the Dongyan clan and the three from the Black-White College…but of course, she paid the most attention to Ji Ning!

“Not good. Senior apprentice-sister Yu Wei is in danger.” A look of worry appeared on Ninelotus’ face as her hands clenched around her robes.

“Ji Ning. Ji Ning is nearby.. Ji Ning, hurry up and notice it, hurry!” Ninelotus hoped it would happen.

And indeed, just as she had hoped, Ning had sensed the ripples from the battle. He had immediately moved in that direction, and had even displayed an astonishing amount of power. All three died, and Ning and Yu Wei were reunited.

“Whew. The danger is past. Senior apprentice-sister Yu Wei is safe.” Ninelotus let out a sigh. “Now, senior apprentice-sister Yu Wei and Ji Ning can move together and support each other. It will be much safer for them.”

Suddenly, Ninelotus’ heart trembled.

It was only natural and normal for Ji Ning and Yu Wei to travel together; they were fellow disciples, after all. It was normal for them to support each other. But Ninelotus suddenly realized…Ji Ning and Yu Wei, a single man and an unmarried woman, would be together for most likely an entire year.

“A single man and an unmarried woman…experiencing life and death together…for nearly a year…” Ninelotus suddenly shook her head gently. “But I no longer have any right to think about such matters.”

Love was a strange thing.

They had clearly already separated, but upon seeing Ji Ning with Yu Wei, she felt as though a stone had just hammered against her heart, causing ripples that would be difficult to calm down.

    1. I don’t know why the hell ninelotus is even still in the story lol. They keep bringing her back to whine and mope about being a selfish crontrol freak and not being worthy of Ji Ning.
      We all knew this by the time they’d gotten together. She’s old news.

    1. Yeaaah that’s what I’m hoping for. Since he has an eye on Ning now due his “matchmaking fetish”, I’ll hope he’ll notice that Ning has comprehended the Dao of Sword *-*! Will Ning turn in to a leecher? That you will see on the next episode of:
      “The Pure Yang Matchmaker”


    2. except he was more interested in Yu wei then ning so he probably gonna take her. and he can’t take ning anyways he is MC he is gonna be 1st or 2nd place the emperor wont let him take ning lol

    3. I think that bodhisattva guy would take Ji Ning, i don’t know, it seems that there’s a connection between his name and empyrean god. Well, the thing is, he’s a celestial immortals not an empyrean god. But my guess is, he has a twin body or just someone in an empyrean god’s major clan. I THINK LOLZZ

    4. I have to say, IET can’t properly develop romance. That’s probably why his stories sometimes lack emotion. Like when Ning’s parents died, I felt a tiny bit of emotion but after that, it sort of just became unimportant. This is just my opinion.

        1. Not really. IET’s worlds and systems are very well done, and the plot is usually good, but his weakest area (imo) is easily characters and romance. A lot of his characters are fairly one-dimensional and his romances aren’t that good. Linley and Alice was kind of overdramatized but acceptable, but Linley and Delia was rather forced after they got together. He basically ignored her for the better part of his life in the book, and he even admits that but doesn’t really do much to stop it until he becomes extremely powerful with multiple clones training and one that is with his other people. He’s also probably one of the worst fathers out there.

          1. You guys are looking at these from a point of a person who lives for 75 or so years a dies imagine being a person with infinite life and only people around you could end it you would get stronger then them first also then worry about protecting everyone. IET developes his characters well also he just isn’t going to develop every semi-minor character.

  1. Small fix:


    “I daresay that she HAS NEVER confessed it to this black-robed youth before”

    1. Please dont insult Ninelotus
      She did love Ning, it’s just that her values were different/clashing~
      She was not meant to be together with him

      And although Yu Wei complements Ning quite well, she actually complements him too well, which makes me want to keep them apart

    1. Hopefully he’s visited Earth and knows all the good tropes that apply in this situation. Soaked clothing clinging to skin / ripped clothing (esp. prompting the guy to lend her some of his, or offer to let her use his shower and then walk on her accidentally), the Dao of Pheromones… Tests of courage aren’t bad either. Maybe some Twister while they’re at it?

      1. Ning walks into her while she’s changing, they bump into each other while while flying and he grabs her boob, they’re sparring with each other and end up in awkward positions………etc.

  2. Hey balinor, just wanted to point out something from the previous comments: Ning’s never said that he is a reincarnated immortal, he’s just never tried to correct their misconceptions that he is one. He tried a little but just got a reply from Vastriver to the effect that Ning probably just doesn’t know yet that he is one, that some reincarnated immortals are so powerful that they don’t start to regain their memories until they are Primal Daoists or later.

    1. you do realize not telling the truth and telling a lie is similar just on different scale right? he could just as easily say “i had amassed enough good karma and got reincarnated and based on my memory i was just a normal person that helped a lot of people” simple as that so same thing i guess.

        1. wow dude chill. whats wrong with you anyways? and twist what meaning? lying and not telling truth? no im not twisting the meaning go learn what lying means and when not telling the truth becomes a lie.

          what you described ning do BY YOUR OWN WORDS!!! is called “lying by omission” now what does lying by omission means? it means when you deliberately hide a fact from someone making them believe that the situation is totally different. now if you don’t know what that is then it isn’t any of my business don’t go throwing words around because you think you know everything.

          1. Ning isn’t really deliberately hiding the fact it’s just the one time he tried to correct it they didn’t listen to him so he just decided not to bother.

          2. ^That. Lying by omission is deliberately hiding the facts in order to twist the truth.

            Ji Ning has done no such thing. He never wanted to mislead anyone about who he was. He just didn’t bother to explain.

            Your definition implies that keeping a secret is lying: It isn’t.

      1. From what I remember has been related regarding reincarnation, it was explained that it might take several reincarnation cycles for an immortal to begin to display power again, thus they could go through a few cycles as “an ordinary mortal”. So, Ji Ning truly may not know if he is a reincarnated immortal until he reaches the level of being an immortal. This means he is not lying by omission when he doesn’t refute the claim he may be a reincarnated immortal.

  3. Thanks for the chapter! It amuses me how many people underestimate Ning I can’t wait till they realize just how amazing e is and Ninelotus I laugh at you getting jealous when you weren’t willing to be by his side I’m also getting fond of Lu Dongbin I hope he picks Ning or Yu Wei

        1. Well whats good about her? They haven’t interacted much, they’re not particularly close. Other than the hints here and there that she likes Ji Ning we know next to nothing. So adding another option would not be a bad thing, specially a rival kind; which would be doable in this place full of “monsters”.

  4. Thanks for the chapter.

    IET keeps bashing love over our heads. Cant he just relax with this love nonsense? Why is it so important he gets married? What he should be doing is training, thats what im here to read not some half baked romance comming from nowwhere.

  5. Why do I feel that Ji Ning is just gonna be a 100, 000 year old virgin like Qin Yu?
    “Slash! Chop! Boom!”
    ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
    囧Ψ? THANKS ?Ψ囧
    ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

    Thank you for the chapter!

    1. Because IET wants his mc’s to be like him. JK I think IET is scared of writing deep relationship things because most of his fan-base might scream filler about them. And that is why he tries to stay away from it.

      But that’s just my take of it.

  6. I understand why some people hate Ninelotus, but I don’t think that it’s warranted. Considering she didn’t act like Alice and only came to realise that her feelings for JN were just superficial, she doesn’t deserve to be hated. Their relationship could have ended way worse. I think the way it ended was very healthy. On that note, Ninelotus will only end up with a spineless bastard, because no self-respecting man will want to live under her control.

  7. Its elementary my dear. Ji Ning needs a harem. Needs to get maiden Nu Wa into it. Makes sense. Ji Ning the ultimate super mythology harem.

    Thanks for the chapter.

  8. What do you mean love? That’s just creepy my dude. Ninelotus should just move on from her creepy attachment and maybe the author can make her into a cool friend for Ji Ning? She seems a lil desperate right now.. not cool

    1. What do you mean? Just because she isn’t able to love him to the point that she would die for him she isn’t allowed to love him? She chose her path but she can still care for him in her heart.

      But I don’t see her as having any useful skills that would help Ning.
