Chapter 891 (Click to show "spoiler" title)

The faces of the two men instantly fell, and they immediately wanted to flee. They were in a dangerous situation, but considering the level of their cultivation base, it wasn’t impossible to dodge aside. However, it was at this moment that Meng Hao’s eyes flickered with a vicious gleam.

He immediately sent out a message with divine will: “Second true self, detonate!!”

His second true self’s eyes flickered, and his arms locked in place. In the blink of an eye, he self-detonated. This was the self-detonation of a true Immortal’s soul and Meng Hao’s fleshly body, as well as the Devilish will inside. A massive explosion shook the stars, and brilliant light spread out in all directions, almost like a sun.

BOOOMMMM!

The sudden detonation of Meng Hao’s true self was a decisive move that few other people could pull off. However, Meng Hao had practiced cultivation for many years and had experienced many deadly situations. Because of his decisive personality, he didn’t hesitate for a moment to detonate his second true self.

The two black-robed cultivators had been on the verge of fleeing, but the self-detonation was something that shook even them. Blood sprayed from their mouths as they lost their chance to retreat.

At the same time, raging killing intent could be seen in Meng Hao’s eyes. He held out the ancient bronze lamp and then blew. A tiny bit of his breath brushed against the lamp, causing the flame inside to suddenly expand. Instantly, a flame sea sprang into being in front of Meng Hao.

The stars trembled as the flame sea raged.

It didn’t spread out very far, only a few dozen meters. However, within that space, the shocking flames caused everything to ripple and distort. From a distance, the sea of flames resembled an enormous fiery butterfly, spreading destruction as it fluttered its wings.

The two black-robed men let out miserable screams. They tried to use magical items to defend themselves, but even the third black-robed man’s treasures were instantly destroyed. Flames engulfed their bodies, and their skin cracked and burned.

The potency of the flame went beyond even Meng Hao’s expectations. In the end, it only took a few breaths of time for the fire to completely incinerate the two black-robed men, who had actually excelled in terms of speed. One of them, in the moment before his death, glared at Meng Hao viciously, then used some unique divine ability to rapidly wither his own body and send a burst of energy out.

“We die together!” he howled. The energy surged toward Meng Hao, enveloping him.

Meng Hao’s entire body began to tremble; massive power began to shred his skin. In the exact same moment that his body exploded, his Eternal stratum surged into action. The only thing left behind was the bronze lamp. By that time, the second black-robed man finally transformed into ash, and his soul dispersed. In the last instant before he died, no regret could be seen in his eyes; he had accomplished his mission.

The two men were incinerated, even their bags of holding and very bones transformed into nothing but ash.

Any presence of their existence was completely blotted out.

Off in the distance, the first black-robed man was still tangling with the crocodile. When he saw what had just happened, his jaw dropped in disbelief and terror.

“What fire is that!?!?”

He could never have imagined that the person he was going up against would be so terrifying. In order to kill him, two of his compatriots, both stage seven Immortals, had been killed, and had even been forced to attempt to end their own lives to accomplish the mission.

Those flames left the black-robed man’s face completely ashen, and his heart pounding. He was now even more frightened than before, and was actually rejoicing that he hadn’t been so hasty in his attack earlier. If he had been, he would most likely be dead now.

“This Meng Hao was vicious! He actually detonated his own clone to kill his opponents! Were it not for his decisiveness, the two of them would have been able to flee. With their cultivation bases, they shouldn’t have been destroyed in body and spirit.

“If this kid hadn’t met such an early end, then he would definitely have become famous throughout the Ninth Mountain and Sea!

“Well, it’s too bad that he did die!” A look of greed appeared in the man’s eyes. Even as he fought with the crocodile, he looked over at the bronze lamp, which had a slice of bloody flesh laying across it. Next to it was Meng Hao’s bag of holding.

“That precious treasure belongs to me now! Also that Lightning Cauldron with the transposition powers!

“Plus, now I will get all the credit for killing Meng Hao!” However, it was in this moment of excitement that his face suddenly filled with disbelief. Voice hoarse, he said, “Impossible!”

In that moment, the shredded, bloody pieces of Meng Hao’s body formed back together. An ancient aura spread out that carried the feeling of Eternity. In only a moment, Meng Hao was completely formed anew!

His face was pale, but his eyes flickered with the desire to kill. He looked up at the black-robed man, his expression icy, as if he were looking at a dead man. The black-robed man’s face fell and, despite the level of his cultivation, he was filled with terror and wanted to flee. Unfortunately for him, the crocodile went crazy to block his way.

Meng Hao coldly patted his bag of holding to produce a set of clothing, which he quickly donned. Then he put the bronze lamp back into his bag of holding. The spark inside was clearly much dimmer; it would probably only be usable once or twice more.

After putting everything in order, Meng Hao looked at the spot where his second true self had detonated. He waved his hand, causing all of the bits of blood and flesh to fly toward him. The soul of the true Immortal had not completely dissipated, although it had been reduced to only ten percent of its former power. All that was left of his body was a lump of gore, within which was the fully coalesced Devilish will. The whole thing resembled a black heart.

After sealing it and putting it away, Meng Hao headed toward the crocodile and the black-robed man.

He had sustained heavy losses in this fight, but had survived thanks to his Eternal stratum. If he hadn’t made the sacrifices he had, he would definitely be dead now.

The black-robed man looked at him, his heart filled with fear. Meng Hao looked like some ancient fiend as he slowly approached.

The black-robed man was filled with shock, and had already sustained injuries. His heart was in chaos as the crocodile suddenly bit down on his right leg, causing cracking sounds to emanate out as the leg was shattered. It was in that moment that Meng Hao arrived, a red vortex beneath his feet. The vortex grew larger and larger until it resembled a sea of blood.

“Come no closer!” howled the black-robed man. He tried to retreat, but the crocodile had him pinned down, and he was injured again. By this point, he couldn’t even unleash the full power of his cultivation base; he was now at the level of a stage five Immortal.

Meng Hao moved forward with incredible speed, the blood sea beneath his feet growing larger and larger. In the end, the sea of blood churned in a massive vortex that surrounded Meng Hao, until he wasn’t even visible anymore.

BOOM!

The black-robed man performed an incantation, unleashing a divine ability that slammed into the sea of blood. It began to fall apart, but then reformed. The black-robed man’s face was pale white, as he performed constant incantation gestures and constant attacks. He continued to try to retreat, and was continually harassed and injured by the crocodile.

His will to fight had long since vanished. Seeing his two companions die had struck quite a blow, and then Meng Hao had returned to life, which was an even more intense shock.

Furthermore, no matter how he attacked, Meng Hao’s blood sea vortex couldn’t be destroyed. Every time the vortex began to fall apart, it would quickly recover. In the space of a few breaths of time, the blood sea vortex reached the black-robed man and then began to envelop him.

Booms rang out, accompanied by the black-robed man’s muffled, bloodcurdling shrieks. The vortex collapsed, but then exploded back out. Every time it collapsed, it reformed, until gradually, the screams grew weaker. After enough time passed for an incense stick to burn, the cries faded away.

After a moment, the blood sea began to shrink back down, transforming into Meng Hao once again. In front of him was the desiccated corpse of the black-robed man, who stared up with wide, vacant eyes. His flesh and blood, cultivation base, and even soul had been sucked dry.

Meng Hao’s face was a bit flushed as he hovered there among the stars, eyes closed. After a long moment, he opened his eyes, and he looked exhausted. Yet, within that exhaustion could be seen the desire to kill.

“So, they’re actually from… the Fang Clan!!” In the end, Meng Hao had used one of the abilities of the ultimate form of the Blood Demon Grand Magic, a terrifying divine ability with potentially fatal side-effects, that required only a bit of time to perform.

It was an ability that left him completely vulnerable to outside attack, which was why he had never used it before, a divine ability that allowed him to completely absorb the victim’s memories.

“How cute,” he thought, “and what a lovely clan. I haven’t even arrived yet, and they’ve already sent people to kill me….

“Clearly, someone doesn’t want me to get back to the Fang Clan alive….

“It’s too bad that someone used a memory-wiping technique on this black-robed cultivator, making it impossible to determine who gave the orders to kill me. Clearly that person truly fears me.” Meng Hao smiled, although it was a somewhat sinister smile.

As of now, he was no longer the Meng Hao who, after reuniting with his father and mother, could rely on their help. He was back to his old self, running wild, with only himself to depend on.

“The more somebody wants to prevent me from getting back alive, the more I want to get to the Fang Clan,” he thought, his eyes flickering with murderous intent. Gradually, the killing intent faded into the recesses of his mind. He opened the black-robed man’s bag of holding, but there was nothing inside other than a flying shuttle.

The flying shuttle operated on spirit stones, and would enable to him to make his way through the stars. As long as he had spirit stones, it would work. Unfortunately, because of the quality with which it was constructed, and the spell formations that it operated, its effectiveness was limited. However, higher quality spirit stones would enable it to move much faster

After he saw the flying shuttle, Meng Hao examined it closely. After determining that there were no booby traps or similar dangers, he quickly branded it with divine sense, then waved his hand, causing the shuttle to grow larger. When it reached thirty meters in length, he sat down inside of it, then, suppressing the pain he felt, placed a high-grade spirit stone down onto its surface. Rumbling could be heard as the shuttle then began to move forward.

Meanwhile, in another location in the starry sky, another black-robed man whose cultivation base exceeded the Immortal Realm suddenly stopped in his tracks. He lifted his right hand, and three shattered jade slips appeared within it.

“Dead? I sent those three to kill a Spirit Realm cultivator, and they ended up getting killed…? Did someone else interfere?” After a moment of silence, the black-robed man continued onward at top speed, intending to search for Meng Hao personally.

“In order to have Meng Hao killed, his excellency even sent people to keep Prince 19 from interfering. All just for this chance. Failure is not an option. Meng Hao… must die! He must not get to Planet East Victory alive!”

    1. I will hijack this comment to say:
      I just finished this chapter.
      Clearly you guys who are ahead know who sent those people to kill Meng Hao.
      I can tell that the person who wants Meng Hao dead is none other then his cousin Prince Wei.

      1. Remember when it said that due to his rebirth that his destiny was cut off, whether it be achievements, good fortune, and everything else? What if the Nirvana Fruit is something of a condensation of his that, meaning anyone who eats it would be able to get some of his destiny, and considering how pure his bloodline is that would probably result in a massive talent increase and karma leading to good fortune as well?

    1. Im guessing someones already taken them long ago

      Some Elder deciding that Meng Hao was trash and would never survive tribulation so gave them to a Chosen Grandson or something

    2. While Meng Hao was leaving for planet East Victory , His dad told him that he should get the Nirvana fruit to reach the peak of Immortal quickly and should not stay behind other chosen … Pretty sure it has function to skyrocket the cultivation base.

    1. Too early to have a definite answer but for now I’d be safe in saying no. I think only the Three Great Daoisit Societies might be the only ones aware or competent enough to know about or take away his qualification. Safe to say this has something to go with internal struggles in the Fang clan or straight up Meng’s Fruits

    2. It’s 100% safe to assume they’re not hunting him for the Echelon qualification. There are a lot of hard-on facts to support this case:

      – It’s been already revealed that they’re from the Fang Clan.
      – They have outdated information about Meng Hao’s strength.
      – He was wearing the guise of Fang Mu.
      – Everyone in the Ninth Mountain and Sea thought Fang Mu was dead except his family and selected people in South Heaven who knew his real identity. Even Reverend Violet East and Chu Yuyan doesn’t know if he’s still alive.
      – If they knew he was Fang Mu then they wouldn’t be surprised to see his cultivation strength reaching the level of a 4th stage Immortal.
      – The discussion between the White Clothed Lady Paragon and Fang Mu was isolated. I doubt anyone was able to eavesdrop considering her status as a Paragon.
      – There were no indication that his parents even noticed that he received the 13th Echelon qualification, much less the people from Fang Clan.
      – If they were really aiming for the Echelon qualification, then Meng Hao would have learned about it after reading one of assailant’s memory. And no, the memory erasure wouldn’t affect their memory on their “mission”, otherwise how could they even perform it if they don’t know what to do?
      – They assumed that their mission was accomplished as soon as Meng Hao exploded and assumably thought he was dead for sure.
      – The Echelon qualification protects Meng Hao’s “soul” twice. So why the heck did they not aim to destroy his soul and simply went for a “normal” kill?

      Unless you debunk the majority of the arguments above, then chances are they are not killing him for the Echelon qualification.

      1. Superb deduction skillz there sir. I completedly agree with you. It’s definitely an internal feud within the Fang Clan. Who knows, it might be that one prince Hoawie harassed and beat up all the time when they were young, which he plots to get rid of Hoawie now that he is returning…

      2. As for the memory part, they don’t have to be told the reason about the echelon, they can be just sent to kill him. However, you are right. Most likely, they are not hunting him for the qualification. it’s probably to protect the nirvanic fruits that he made… maybe.

  1. Thanks for the chapter!

    Because they obviously see Meng Hao as someone of importance, does that mean when he gets to the Fang Clan he will be a silkpants? Perhaps in line for a position of authority in the clan, due to his heritage?

    And maybe, also, the person behind this is after the Nirvana Fruits Meng Hao left behind from his previous two rebirths?

    1. I will sound like a douche, but NO SHIT SHERLOCK. They see him of importance because of his Nirvana Fruits. Mystery solved. I doubt he will be next in line for authority, he’s a kid of Xiufeng, great genius aaaand that’s it. Xiufeng is trapped for another 999500 years on planet South Heaven. He’s not a Patriarch. Meng Hao that suddenly appeared WILL NOT be next in line for Patriarch position. They need to kill him before he gets to Fang Clan because Xiufeng and Hao have friends there, that will want him to eat those fruits, just like 19th Uncle/Prince.

  2. It was obviously the Fang Clan. No one else really knows or cares about Meng Hao that much. Especially if they don’t know that he’s Fang Mu. And the Fang Clan has those fruits that are Meng Hao’s from when he underwent his rebirth, which are obviously treasures that they don’t want him to get.
    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. I could think of tens of Sects, Churches and Clans that would rather kill him before he gets to Ninth Sea God World or Ancient Daoist Rite Temple or w/e it was called. As long as they kill him before he gets there, noone can pin it down on them and they get rid of a future Paragon.

  3. Thanks for the double chapter release, DB!

    So the Fang clan know him as Meng Hao and not Fang Hao..I guess it may be due to the Ancient Daoist Temple Arc that they knew Fang Hao as Meng Hao.. The mastermind should be one of the Dads of those Fang clan chosen…and maybe one who’s had a bitter grudge with Fang Xiufeng…this should be interesting!

  4. Dammit, Meng Hao’s first journey through the stars and this happens! I’m guessing that the person trying to kill him is the father of that Fang Clan Chosen. I’m fairly certain he wants the fruit for his son. It’s even possible that he’s already given the fruit to his son, which is why his son’s talent was high enough to make a Mist Blade for his Severing, and he wants to kill Meng Hao to cover his tracks.

  5. Thank you for the chapter.
    HAHAHAHAHAHA , I called it two chapters ago that this was Fang Clan doing. When Haowie said ” How Cute” I can only imagine what sort of retribution is instore for these people. I sense something similar is going to to these Fang people to is happening like what is currently happening in ATG with Yun Che and the other Families

  6. Them mentioning the king and one of the black men saying 19th uncle=19th prince, are they talking bout one of the grandfathers or whoever is the next in line for patriarch? Just going on a tangent here

  7. greed, greed that is unsurpassingly high that you will kill a future hope of the clan just for your meager ass. become strong YOURSELF, don’t suppress anyone that can surpass you, because that means you yourself will never surpass yourself them.

  8. Thanks for the chapter Deathblade, anonpuffs, Madam Deathblade, Courtrecords, GNE, Lingson, joeljbright, Shu, and Baby Deathblade! Time for Meng Hao to clean house!

  9. Well it seems as foreshadowed, this visit home is not going to be as warm as Meng Hao wanted it to be. Such a shame. Well it will just be that a good few Fang members will end up dying before this all rolls over.

    Thanks for the Double Chapters! Ah such nice gifts!

  10. You know that is what I don’t get about these items.

    In Xian Ni, there is a penalty from stealing items / consuming other people’s qi / basically anything going against Heavens Will has a HUGE penalty and requires the cultivator to have knowledge of dispelling the penalty or lessening it to increase their cultivation.

    For example, the MC in Xian Ni cannot just consume people wantonly in order to increase his cultivation; he had to improve his fleshy body first or else he would have imploded from Qi overflow and the fact that he couldn’t refine the qi to be his own.

    With ISSTH, we have the Wang Clan patriarch that stole Perfection and went insane because Meng Hao stopped the process midway.

    Isn’t eating the Nirvana fruits have an even WORSE penalty? You are stealing someone’s lifelong luck, destiny, and talent away without refining away the ties the fruit has to the original person. That is even worse than stealing someone elses qi into your body and not refining it which can cause turmoil.

    Id expect that if they didn’t refine it in some way he could just order the nirvana fruit within the Chosens body to coalesce back into a fruit and rip it out of their body because he is still connected to the fruit as it is his in the first place.

  11. I’m surprised that no-one seems to have realised it’s that asshole Fang Wei sending people to kill Meng Meng, it’s so obvious guys, (Majesty = Prince Wei). The Fang clan don’t really know that Meng Hao is that talented and Fang Wei is deemed as the most talented and powerful person around Meng Hao’s age in the Fang Clan (probably because he’s been refining Meng’s fruits, the basta*d). Fang Wei obviously wants the asshole who used to bully him as a child who can also steal his position dead.

    1. I’m pissed off that Xiufeng didn’t realise something like this would happen, he could’ve at least sent a clone with him to accompany him, not his weak ass brother. -_-

  12. The son of 19? Or maybe one of the other chosen of Dao children. Or someone who thought it was okay to eat Meng Hao’s nirvana fruits. Someone is gonna pay.

    Thanks for the chapter.
