Chapter 1070: Slaughtering a Path Through the Sect

Meng Hao’s eyes flashed with determination as he transformed into a beam of light that sped through the water. He had one goal in mind, and that was to reach the Nine Seas God World and find… Long Tianhai!

Of the people who had attacked Meng Hao, the two Demonic cultivator Elders had already been killed. Of the nine Sea Realm Demons, only their highest ranking member was left alive. He was the one who had personally kidnapped Chu Yuyan, which further intensified Meng Hao’s desire to kill him.

“Chu Yuyan has been afflicted with Underworld Dragon Poison, so getting some Sea Dragon heart-blood is vital to treating her!” That was something Meng Hao had gleaned from Elder Hai Sheng’s memories.

It was a poison that required heart-blood from at least ten Sea Dragons to be able to dispel. The higher the cultivation base of said dragons, the more effective the antidote would be. Furthermore, Meng Hao had chosen not to seek out Sea Dragons that had not yet achieved the ability to take human form. His goal… was to get Demonic Cultivators from the Demonic Cultivator Horde.

Another thing that Meng Hao had learned from Elder Hai Sheng’s memories was that Long Tianhai’s true form was that of a Sea Dragon.

He shot back toward the Nine Seas God World at top speed, during which time his cultivation base continued to restore itself, and his wounds were healed. His Eternal stratum worked hard, and after the time it takes an incense stick to burn, he was back at his peak. Soon, a huge land mass appeared up ahead in the water.

It contained mountain ranges and even its own sky. It was… the Nine Seas God World!

Meng Hao’s eyes flickered with killing intent as he pushed harder for more speed. He sped forward, nearing the main gate of the sect, and then stepping down onto the land of the Nine Seas God World.

As soon as he entered the sect, he saw three Demonic cultivators, who appeared to be waiting for him. As soon as they saw him, their faces involuntarily fell, revealing shock.

The fact that catching sight of Meng Hao didn’t cause them to radiate killing intent, but rather shock, indicated only one thing….

They knew that Meng Hao had been set up to die on the outside!

The three Demonic cultivators’ faces fell, and they started to back up. However, even in the moment that their faces flickered with surprise, Meng Hao’s eyes flashed with killing intent. Considering that they only had Immortal Realm cultivation bases, to Meng Hao, they were already dead.

Meng Hao had already killed plenty of people on this day, and had experienced plenty of potentially deadly situations. His killing intent was now beyond abundant. He had no intentions of calming the situation down. He wanted people dead, and he wanted a big scene!

He wanted a slaughter of epic proportions, and a scene that caused Heaven and Earth to crumble!

He barrelled forward, waving his hand violently, causing the pressure of the Immortal Emperor to sweep out, along with a tempestuous wind. The three Demonic cultivators’ faces flickered, and they tried to flee with all their power. Unfortunately for them, however, they were pinned down by the sweeping pressure.

Miserable shrieks rang out as the wind shredded them to pieces, causing the windstorm to rain blood.

In the moment that the three died, there were eight ordinary cultivators off in the distance who saw what happened. Their faces filled with shock as they saw that the killer was actually Meng Hao. They gasped and exchanged glances.

“That’s Meng Hao!”

“Why is he killing people? Didn’t he and the Demonic Cultivator Horde agree to a ceasefire already?!”

“Something big must have happened. He just killed three Demonic cultivators! There’s no way the Demonic Cultivator Horde will let this stand!!” Although they were shocked, they didn’t make any attempt to interfere with Meng Hao. Were he anyone else, they would have done so, and would also have notified their superiors in the sect. But considering it was Meng Hao, they instantly hesitated.

The tempest swirled, and blood rained out of the sky. As for Meng Hao, he walked out of the bloody storm and headed straight forward… following the tug of the Karma Thread directly toward Long Tianhai’s Immortal’s cave.

It only took a moment for his divine sense to spread out and lock down the position of the Immortal’s cave. Also, he was able to sense… Long Tianhai’s aura.

He transformed into a prismatic streak of light that shot forward like lightning. Any Demonic cultivators that crossed his path were instantly cut down.

It only took a short time for the entire Nine Seas God World to be thrown into an uproar. Numerous cultivators witnessed Meng Hao slaughtering Demonic cultivators, leading to widespread shock.

His feud had escalated to the point where he figured he might as well resolve the issue with killing. Since they looked at him with hatred, he would just kill them without any further considerations!

Booms echoed out, and Meng Hao’s killing intent soared. Strangely, however, the strongest Demonic cultivators he met were merely in the Ancient Realm, with two or three extinguished Soul Lamps at that. No one stronger appeared, and in fact, it was mostly Immortal Realm Demonic cultivators who showed their faces.

Meng Hao’s eyes flashed, and he didn’t hesitate at all. The Demonic cultivators he came across looked at him with resentment and hostility, and he killed them all.

He knew that if he didn’t kill them, they would try to kill him as soon as they had a chance!

If it becomes impossible to resolve things with reason, then might makes right!

Meng Hao’s path of slaughter was soaked in blood and filled with bloodcurdling screams. He was like a deity of death as he drew ever closer to Long Tianhai in his Immortal’s cave!!

From the moment Meng Hao had first caught sight of Long Tianhai outside of the main gate, to the slaughter of Seajacket Island, to the deadly duel with Elder Hai Sheng, to the massacre going on now within the Nine Seas God World…

Only about six hours had passed!


Six hours earlier….

Deep within the central mountains of the Nine Seas God World was a mighty mountain peak, atop which sat an ancient temple.

Two statues could be seen at the front of the temple, both of which held huge swords in their hands. From afar, they looked like protectors of the entire God World.

Granny Nine, Godmaster and Ling Yunzi sat cross-legged inside the temple, staring coldly at the four other Dao Realm experts who sat across from them. Two were old men who were radiating their Essence auras, and had scales on their foreheads. They were the Dao Realm Patriarchs from the Demonic Cultivator Horde. As for the other two, one was a man, the other a woman. Both had wry, apologetic smiles on their faces.

“We’re all members of the same sect,” the woman said softly. “We shouldn’t involve ourselves in the matters of the Junior generation. I hope the three of you can understand that. Why don’t we all discuss the Dao to pass the time? We don’t often get opportunities to get together like this.” Smiling, her eyes flickered as she waved her hand, causing a screen to appear in front of them. Depicted on that screen was an image… of Meng Hao emerging from his Immortal’s cave.

Ling Yunzi snorted coldly, but didn’t say anything. He understood that right now, it was not only impossible for the three of them to do anything, all of the Ancient Realm experts in the entire sect had also been prevented from interfering.

That seemed to include not just their side, but also the cultivators from the other factions. Unfortunately… the combined power of the other three factions exceeded that of Ling Yunzi, Granny Nine, and Godmaster. The other factions also controlled slightly more Ancient Realm cultivators than they did.

However, Ling Yunzi wasn’t very worried. He had already secretly warned Meng Hao to return to the sect as soon as he set foot outside, and told him that he would handle any fallout.

However, it was at that point that the screen flickered with an image of Long Tianhai facing off with Meng Hao. Everyone in the temple hall could see as the two of them started talking.

Then they saw Chu Yuyan, and Ling Yunzi’s face flickered. Granny Nine and Godmaster had similar reactions. Granny Nine’s face actually darkened with anger, and she shot to her feet. Immediately, the energy of the other four Dao Realm experts surged.

“Granny Nine, we have an agreement, don’t we?” said one of the Dao Realm Demonic cultivators, an old man with bright red hair. “Could it be that you’re actually going to break your word?

“We Dao Realm experts already promised not to interfere in the vast enmity that exists between Meng Hao and the Demonic Cultivator Horde. Most of the Ancient Realm cultivators have also been locked down. Granny Nine, if you want to start a war, then so be it!”

“Sit tight!” Godmaster said. Granny Nine paused, and then slowly sat back down.

The images continued to play out on the screen. Soon, Meng Hao and Long Tianhai had their scuffle. When Meng Hao’s energy rose up shockingly, various expressions of surprise could be seen on the faces of the Dao Realm experts.

Next was the slaughter of the sea beasts, and the boiling of the Ninth Sea, which caused frowns to appear on the faces of the Demonic cultivators. Then Meng Hao arrived at the island, where he crushed his opponents and cast off the pressure of the Ninth Sea. With nine steps, he slaughtered eight Sea Realm Demons, and drained the other Ancient Realm Demonic cultivator dry.

The island was destroyed in shocking fashion, a scene which caused the Demonic Dao Realm experts’ faces to become even more unsightly. Conversely, Ling Yunzi and Granny Nine breathed sighs of relief.

It was at that point that Elder Hai Sheng’s death trap appeared, and all of a sudden, none of them could see what was happening. Granny Nine’s heart began to pound, and her face flickered. Ling Yunzi couldn’t hold back any longer, and he stood up.

It was at this point that one of the human Dao Realm experts, the man, laughed and moved to intercept him.

“Fellow Daoist Ling Yunzi,” he said. “I’ve experienced some enlightenment recently regarding Time magic. Come, come. Let’s meditate and appreciate it together.” With that, he raised his hand, causing a resplendent beam of light to fly out that flickered with an aura of Time.

“Get the hell out of my way!” said Ling Yunzi, his eyes shining with killing intent.

The man’s face darkened, and he said, “Fellow Daoist Ling Yunzi, have you forgotten our agreement? Besides, are you really going to be so insulting as to refuse to discuss the Dao with me?”

“Sit!” Godmaster said, his eyes shining with profundity.

Ling Yunzi gritted his teeth and slowly sat back down, glaring at the screen. Not much more time passed before the death trap was broken. A Sea Dragon emerged, wailing miserably, followed by a murderous Meng Hao!

Instantly, the faces of the two Demonic Dao Realm cultivators fell. Then they saw Elder Hai Sheng die, and Meng Hao threaten the Ninth Sea.

Finally, Meng Hao sped back, entered the Nine Seas God World, and began to slaughter the Demonic Cultivator Horde!

Instantly, the two Demonic Dao Realm cultivators rose to their feet. But then, Ling Yunzi stood, laughing as he blocked their path.

“We’re all members of the same sect,” he said with smile. “We shouldn’t involve ourselves in the matters of the Junior generation. I hope the three of you can understand that. Why don’t we all discuss the Dao to pass the time? We don’t get opportunities to get together like this very often.”

“Get the hell out of my way!” said the red-haired Demonic cultivator, his voice echoing like thunder. He was just about to charge past, when Ling Yunzi snorted coldly.

“We have an agreement, don’t we?” he said. “Could it be that you’re actually going to break your word?”

The faces of the two Demonic Dao Realm experts flickered.

It was at this point that Godmaster suddenly moved noiselessly to appear next to Ling Yunzi. He looked darkly at the two Demonic Dao Realm experts and coldly said, “Meng Hao is connected by destiny to the Nine Seas God World! You can’t blame me for killing you if you step out of that door!”

Off to the side, the two human Dao Realm experts were just about to walk out when Granny Nine appeared in front of them, smiling.

“Fellow Daoists, I’ve experienced some enlightenment recently regarding water magic. Come, come. Let’s meditate and appreciate it together.” Granny Nine waved her hand, causing a drop of water to fly out. It did not glitter resplendently, and was clearly just ordinary water. Obviously Granny Nine wasn’t interested in even bothering with pretenses.

The two human Dao Realm experts looked extremely irritated, and were about to say something in response when Granny Nine’s eyes suddenly flashed dangerously.

“Have you two forgotten our agreement? Besides, are you really going to be so insulting as to refuse to discuss the Dao with me?”

  1. nooooo… made it to top five though.. i kinda like the machine trans as heavenly crown immortal and heavenly crown dao immortal.. salamat thanks for the chap db!

  2. They should dealt with Meng Hao fairly and openly, they wrought this disaster themselves.
    Well, if this PW, those dudes already dinners for MC, and normally Meng Hao will take his time harvesting their corpses.

    1. MH wouldn’t care slaughtering them all coz dead seafood = spirit stones.. he was just hesitant before coz he felt guilty about what he did at milky sea.. 😀 hahaha

    1. Ohh my bad. I thought I replied to the comment 12.

      He had five extinguished lamps and that was still the early stage of the Ancient realm, he only increased it to nine lamps when they were covered. They would have definitely interfered had they saw this was the case. But it was for the best that they didn’t, they completely used all of their words against them when they tried to intervene.

      1. “all of the Ancient Realm experts in the entire sect had also been prevented from interfering.” I don’t see where it stated that it would be the late stage? Would you enlighten me on this please?

        1. Chapter 1063 :
          “Even though it was obvious the Demonic Cultivator Horde had arranged the assignment, Ling Yunzi was able to ensure that no Dao Realm experts would be involved, nor peak Ancient Realm cultivators.”

          I just assumed this rule is still in place since he only been a few hours since it’s start.

          1. They hid the existence of the Ancient Realm cultivators they sent (remember the screen turning black) and early Anceint Realm cultivators seem to be alright, judging by how the 9 from the Demonic Horde were given the okay and by the time they knew about stronger people being sent, they were already being slaughtered by Meng Hao so they can’t really complain at that point. Plus, there should be no one left who’s strong enough to challenge Meng Hao.

  3. Very true, Er Gen. We can’t really say that Meng Hao was in the right.
    But still, since it was impossible to decide, then I might as well cheer for Meng Hao and let him slaughter all those seafood dishes.

    Wow, it was so satisfying to see how the factions’ face-off fared. I love Granny Nine’s water magic, she enlightened me!

  4. ‘Lil Haowie wants to treat everyone in Nine Seas God World to an all-you-can-eat seafood buffet – made with the freshest ingredients, of course!

    Thanks for the chapter.

  5. Fellow Fisherman… Gather for emergency meeting!!!!!!!!!!!!!…
    This cant do… Why so hard to get haul these day.. anyone know what is going on here?? What should we do?? T-T… If this keep going… how could we continue our living?? any suggestion??

    What do you say!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?? EVERYONE!!!!!… get all of your farming equipment READY…!!
    We got something to CULTIVATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

  6. Slaughter dem seafood!
    Wondering how Meng Hao wants to kill those Dao Realm elders l can’t imagine him killing them without leveling up, even using the first patriarchs Dao fruit shouldn’t be that op.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. I think he said that with a 2nd Dao fruit and the “Allheaven Emperor Immortal” stage he could stay alive agaisnt an early Dao Realm and have a fair fight.

      But i don’t really understand how they work, right now he has 2 of his own which give +50% each (if it’s like Fang Wei) and 1 of the patriarch but wich isn’t complete yet (he didn’t put it in the cauldron). So I guess the last one from the patriarch will give him “Allheaven Dao Immortal”, but what about his own dao fruit.

      1. He said before that he refused to believe that his Dao Fruit were weaker than the First Generation Patriarch’s, so chances are that they’re not. He hasn’t absorbed any of his own yet, so he doesn’t know how strong they are, but they’re probably 100% as well. He originally believed that he’d immediately be able to absorb his own, but when he got them he couldn’t. The reason they were weak before was because it was Fang Wei who was using them, and there’s no POSSIBLE way he was able to use their full power when 1) They weren’t his and 2) Meng Hao can’t even use them properly yet

        Chances are he’ll get to Allheaven Emperor Immortal with the second, Allheaven Dao Immortal with the third and a never before seen stage with the fourth (maybe Allheaven Paragon Immortal or Paragon Dao Immortal, I’m guessing it’ll include paragon in the title because of how important that word is)

  7. Meatbun delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    “Fellow Daoists, I’ve experienced some enlightenment recently regarding meat magic. Come, come. Let’s meditate and appreciate it together.”

  8. Yesss! Mass-murdering! that’s what I was missing these days, a huge slaughter without further discussion. that whole power-up process was boring as f***, now things are interesting again. it makes me happy seeing Howie oppressing his enemies.

  9. Thanks for the Chapter!

    They all cultivate the Dao of one upmanship!

    I get the Demonic cultivators wanting to leave and defend their horde but not the human cultivators, I always kind of considered them neutral. Why’d Granny Nine have to force them to stay?

    MH needs the Demonic Hordes cooperation to help open the Windswept Realm but at this rate there probably won’t be a Demonic Horde left by the time its time to do that… well except for the Seafood choir back at MHs immortals cave.

    One thing’s for sure, plenty of Hot Pot to go around.. Mmmm Mmm! Genocide!

  10. The only reason this scenario exists is because the author has little understanding of how societies form or function or the meaning of freedom (aka Meng Hao’s supposed Dao, which is really the Dao of Power) or how to legitimately justify behavior. Killing people because they might be a future enemy is NOT legitimate, nor can ‘might makes right’ EVER be justified; any nominal attempts to do so are mere propaganda to obfuscate and distract. There is almost no arbitration or restitution of obvious and blatant law breaking in ISSTH, partly because of the idiotic ‘no interference between power levels’ rule, and primitive understanding of time-flow and economics. In a slightly more realistic world Meng Hao would have long ago been penalized most of his wealth and/or imprisoned/enslaved/executed to pay off debts of theft and murder. Plenty of plot and universe-building armor to perform this power fantasy. Since MH is such an asshole, the only reason to continue reading is the comparatively (to other novels) deep universe, occasional humor, and non-linear path of the MC.

    1. I see in the teaser.. since some of the Horde acted in the wrong, somehow all of them are implicated and deserve death. This is such a blatant fallacy, no impartial judge would EVER absolve him to even an iota. The author should stop trying to make empty excuses and just admit his MC is a murdering thief that follows the Dao of Power, aka the Dark Side. Note this is the same BS excuse Anakin used to justify his slaughter of Jedi children.

    2. Your comment is annoying.

      I was going to make a comment about all of the points you made that simply don’t make sense and couldn’t possibly work given the context of this world, but then I decided I don’t really care. You’re obviously just going to keep muttering to yourself about how this fictional world doesn’t fit with your ideas, so even if I did make a solid argument it wouldn’t matter. Anyway, it isn’t anyone else’s problem if you don’t like the MC. I suppose it’s enough that you read the story.

      That being said, after staring at this comment for a bit, I felt uncomfortable just leaving it alone. That is why I would like to say this: Justice is a beautiful lie that doesn’t exist for everyone. Even in our world, if you have enough power (money, charisma, backing, education, etc.), you can basically do whatever you want unless you make it so blatantly obvious that people have no choice but to put you in your place to prevent the law and the justice system from collapsing in on themselves, and that’s only if enough people with power actually care to deal with you.

      Just check the news. There are literally stories where a guy r**ps his own twelve year old daughter repeatedly and gets away with essentially a mere 60 days in jail. Not every case is so extreme, but my point stands.

      Get over yourself.

  11. He wanted a slaughter of epic proportions, and a scene that caused Heaven and Earth to crumble!
    A man after my own heart :’)
    I kind of want almost all of the Demonic Horde to die now. I get that they’re angry and all that, but you do not mess with the main character’s people.
    Thanks for the chapter DB!

  12. Thank you for the chapters. Hug.

    Why they never learn and keep bugging Meng Hou. He is powerful now. *sigh* Meng Hou or Fang Mu reputation should come to their ears. They can fear Ke Jouzi only by hearing gossips for bad reputation. Why they can not hear Meng Hou’s “evil reputation” and stay away from him .

    Meng Hou must have a very pretty girly face coz people keep under estimate him.

  13. Thanks for the chapter Deathblade, anonpuffs, Madam Deathblade, GNE, Courtrecords, Shu, JerryDaBaws, and Baby Deathblade! Meng Hao won’t need the Ninth Sea in the future. Nor any of the other Eight Seas if they’re going to cause trouble.
