Chapter 948 – Incarnation of the Jade Slip

Atop the peak of a floating mountain, underneath the glow of multicolored lights, Lin Ming and Qin Xingxuan lay spread out on the grass, watching as the white clouds rolled past them. All the wonders around them left one intoxicated like a dream.

With the world as a bed, flowers as a blanket, a beautiful woman hugged close to his chest, Lin Ming watched the scenery around him. He stood at the very pinnacle of the Sky Spill Continent; his life could’ve been said to have reached the limit of happiness.

In these past years, if Lin Ming hadn’t been bitterly cultivating, then he was slaughtering or fleeing. He had rushed headlong into all sorts of dangerous situations with only slim hopes for survival; he never had a chance to calm his heart and enjoy his life.

If one didn’t experience such a free and glorious fairy-like life at least once, then their life would be lacking. While the road of martial arts was filled with long periods of cultivation, they also needed to become aware of themselves and their feelings. They needed to taste the hundreds of emotions in life; this was also part of cultivation.

Lin Ming gently skimmed his fingers over Qin Xingxuan’s body. She snuggled up to his chest like a cat. Both of their hearts were filled with an unprecedented peace.

After a long time passed, Qin Xingxuan seemed to suddenly remember something. She said, “Husband, before Old Man Good Fortune left, he left you a letter. You might want to take a look at it.”

Lin Ming faintly smiled. “I already know what Senior Good Fortune wants to say; it’s about the matter of ascending. Unfortunately, I cannot go along with Senior Good Fortune’s wishes. Senior Good Fortune already has a sect that he has devoted his life too and that sect is less suitable for me than the Ancient Phoenix Clan. I’m also only at the fifth-stage of Life Destruction; it’ll be difficult for him to open a space gate for me. I can only decline Senior Good Fortune’s kind intentions.”

Lin Ming planned to ascend as soon as possible; he certainly wouldn’t wait until he reached the Divine Sea. “Xingxuan, If there’s no accident, I’ll stay in the lower realms for another year or two. Before I go, I’ll help raise your cultivation to the Revolving Core and Yu’er’s cultivation to Life Destruction. Tomorrow we’ll go on a little adventure; I’ll bring you somewhere fun.”

“Mm? Where?”

“You’ll know once we get there.”

The place Lin Ming brought Qin Xingxuan and Mu Qianyu to was the Blood Slaughter Steppes – the Road of the Emperor.

With Steppes Master Lin Ming bringing them, there was certainly no one that would dare stop Qin Xingxuan and Mu Qianyu from entering the Road of the Emperor. Moreover, most of the Tower Masters and High Lords were controlled by Demonshine. In the future, the Blood Slaughter Steppes would become a great support for Divine Phoenix Island.

Qin Xingxuan and Mu Qianyu split up and went to two different Sky Split Towers, separately entering the Road of the Emperor. As for Lin Ming, he also entered and began to perceive the emperor stone tablets.

The road of the Emperor stone tablets were far inferior to the road of will lights in term of mysteriousness. The emperor stone tablets were carved with Laws that geniuses had left behind after they passed through the Road of the Emperor. Besides a few people like the Demon Emperor, none of these emperor stone tablets entered Lin Ming’s eyes. Even the highest of these emperor stone tablets were inferior to the exquisiteness of the Thunder Laws jade slip left behind by Jiang Ziji.

Lin Ming was a bit disappointed by this.

Empyrean Primordius and the goddess from the Eternal Demon Abyss had each left behind one will light, but they hadn’t left behind any emperor stone tablets. Lin Ming’s greatest harvest on the Road of the Emperor was from entering the grandmist space that Empyrean Primordius had left behind. He managed to form his grandmist battle spirit in a single go and even came into contact with the mystical Chaos Laws.

No such lucky chance existed in the road of the Emperor stone tablets.

For the next year, Lin Ming assisted Qin Xingxuan and Mu Qianyu in cultivating, passing their days in love and warmth.

During this year, Qin Xingxuan succeeded in breaking into the Revolving Core realm. Compared to Mu Qianyu who broke into the Revolving Core realm at 30 years of age, she was two years faster.

As for Mu Qianyu, she was at the peak of the late Revolving Core realm, just a single step away from Life Destruction. This was also because she felt her foundation and background were lacking, so she intentionally suppressed her cultivation. Otherwise she would’ve already broken through.

As for Lin Ming, he had used this year to thoroughly stabilize his cultivation and purify his understanding of Laws. He completely eliminated all hidden dangers left behind by the ridiculously rapid rise of his cultivation.

In  spring a year later, on a clear sunny day, Lin Ming brought Mu Qianyu and Qin Xingxuan to Divine Phoenix Island’s Divine Phoenix Mystic Realm, where they entered the restricted zone.

Before Lin Ming entered the restricted zone, the Temple Spirit already felt his presence.

An old and indifferent voice echoed in his ear, “It’s been a long time, trial challenger.”

“Mm. It’s been a while. I apologize for disturbing Senior’s sleep. I came this time to ask you a question. How can I break through the space barrier of this world? I would like to leave the Sky Spill Continent and go to the Divine Realm.”

The Temple Spirit said, “Trial challenger, Lady Fairy Feng already investigated the situation around the Sky Spill Continent. The space-time around this planet has been blocked off by some mysterious power. If you wish to create a space channel out of this world and ascend to the Divine Realm then it’ll be very difficult. The simplest method is to go to another world through a transmission array, then take a space channel through there instead. When you left Timeworn Phoenix City, Lady Fairy Feng also passed you several jade slips. One of those jade slips has a single hair of Fairy Feng. If you crush this jade slip, that hair will turn into an incarnation of her. You can rely on this to speak to Lady Fairy Feng again. “

“Mm? That happened?” Lin Ming was stunned. He didn’t think that Fairy Feng would leave behind such a contingency plan. When he left Timeworn Phoenix City, Fairy Feng gave him several Fire Concept jade slips so that he could perceive them. He never discovered anything strange with them.

The Temple Spirit said, “Lady Fairy Feng and Guru Blueflame calculated that you have karma within the Sky Spill Continent that you have not yet resolved, and a greater destiny that you had yet to inherit. If you prematurely ascend to the Divine Realm then you will not be able to fully delve into your potential. Thus, they allowed you to return to the Sky Spill Continent.”

“However, a most elegant white dragon fish is still restrained by the fishermen and birds. Although you’re a mighty dragon in a deep pool and you also have Lady Fairy Feng’s appreciation, before you grow, your fate will inexorably be filled with layers upon layers of trials and tribulations. Without anyone protecting you, even if your destiny is potent, there still exists the danger that you will perish.”

“So Lady Fairy Feng spent a hundred years of her cultivation to keep her incarnation in her hair to accompany you. She didn’t inform you of this so that you wouldn’t grow an arrogant heart and display your true potential instead, reaching the peak of destiny in the Sky Spill Continent and settling your karmic ties. But if you truly did suffer an accident and your life was on the edge between life and death, this jade slip would automatically shatter and Lade Fairy Feng’s incarnation would appear, comprehensively and completely protecting you.”

“Because of the laws that limit the Sky Spill Continent, this incarnation wisp only has a cultivation suppressed to the peak of the late Divine Sea realm. Even so, the incarnation perfectly inherited Lady Fairy Feng’s understanding of Laws. For her to exterminate someone like the Sky Spill Continent’s highest under the heavens would be as simply as waving her hand.”

The Temple Spirit unhurriedly said. Lin Ming took a deep breath. He never imagined that Fairy Feng handled so many matters in secret.

With Fairy Feng’s boundary, let alone having her incarnation suppressed to the late Divine Sea realm, even if it were suppressed to the Life Destruction realm, that would be more than enough to annihilate Yang Yun. It had to be known that Lin Ming was only at the fifth stage of Life Destruction and he managed to kill Yang Yun. Cultivation wasn’t everything. If Fairy Feng’s true form were to arrive on this world, even if her cultivation was suppressed to the fourth stage of Life Destruction she would likely be able to defeat the fifth stage Life Destruction Lin Ming. That was the disparity brought along by different boundaries.

“I never thought that Senior Fairy Feng would make such arrangements. I, Lin Ming, will carve this kindness in my heart.”

Lin Ming honestly said. He knew he was currently an unimportant person. If he showed great talent, he could still only be considered a talented junior. When he obtained first place in the smelting trial, that was only in the lower realms’ Timeworn Phoenix City. The smelting trial in the Divine Realm was far more terrifying; there were simply far too many geniuses there.

A new batch of talents appeared every ten years or so and these extreme talents accumulated for tens of thousands of years. Even if he was the most outstanding talent of his generation, that didn’t mean he would achieve great accomplishments in the future.

With Fairy Feng’s status, she still painstakingly arranged such a protection for him. This was enough for Lin Ming to remember this kindness.

The Temple Spirit said, “Lady Fairy Feng has indeed taken great pains to help you, but you also did not disappoint. From when you returned until now, that wisp of incarnation has never been activated. This is proof that you perfectly resolved your karmic ties in the Sky Spill Continent. You can now choose any time you desire to ascend. Of course, don’t delay for too long. You already stand at the apex of the Sky Spill Continent. Your destiny in the lower realms has already reached its peak. The lower realms will only be your shackles. Only by continuing into the Divine Realm will you be able to broaden your horizons, seek greater lucky chances, meet stronger opponents, and soar into the heavens!”

“As for your cultivation being too low, you don’t need to worry about that. Martial artists born within the Divine Realm occupy the vast majority. They also start from body transformation and go step by step in their cultivations. Within the Ancient Phoenix Clan, there’s disciples at the Xiantian Realm and Revolving Core realm. Of course, there’s also disciples at the Divine Sea realm and Divine Transformation realm. The Ancient Phoenix Clan is an immensely large clan; it’s near impossible to count the number of clansmen. There’s probably billions, tens of billions, or even a hundred billion clansmen. Each and every single one of them have a high degree of cultivation talent. Even then, while the Ancient Phoenix Clan is massive, it’s insignificant in the face of the infinite Divine Realm.”

The Temple Spirit’s voice still lacked any emotion. These words made it clear just how vast and terrifying the Divine Realm really was. In terms of martial artists’ strength, even if all one billion worlds of the three thousands boundless universes were added together, it still couldn’t compare to the tiniest corner of the Divine Realm.

Lin Ming said, “Thank you Senior. This junior will spend another three months in the lower realms before officially ascending.”

“Everything is up to you.” The Temple Spirit’s voice faded away.

For the next three months, Lin Ming completely abandoned training. He brought his parents, Lin Xiaoge, Qin Xingxuan, and Mu Qianyu to sightsee, travelling all over the Sky Spill Continent.

These three months they rode high in the sky, looking down at the picturesque scenery. Sometimes they would disguise themselves as mortals, joining into the bustling marketplaces and experience the happiness and joy of common mortals. Other times they would spend money as if it were water. They would enjoy the most luxurious establishments in the world, savoring the high life of nobility.

During this tour, Lin Ming naturally drowned himself in the pleasures of Qin Xingxuan and Mu Qianyu, becoming drunk on their bodies. Every night they would make love until the lingering dawn approached, intoxicating themselves in the smell of each other. As the three month deadline approached, the two women also gave up any sense of shyness and propriety, allowing Lin Ming to hold them both at night and enjoy the blessings of two wives. They serviced Lin Ming together, all of them basking in love and bliss.

A long life, thousands of years of youth, carefree without worry, endless wealth, beautiful women that willingly ran into his arms, his every need taken care of. In this world, as long as he wished for it, it would be his. Such a life could be said to be at the highest peak.

But all good things had to come to an end. The happy times were far too short. The three month deadline finally arrived.

It was time for Lin Ming to ascend to the Divine Realm.

    1. Wasn’t it already said that there were many lucky chances (like the sorcerer’s tower) that Lin Ming never found and that he should scour the globe before ascending?

      1. Well yes, this place still has lucky chances, but for one, the chances of finding are just that low. Lin Ming found it because of his “great destiny”, but it’s not like it’s a 100% success rate thing (realistically). On the other hand, the Realm of the Gods has a lot more assured lucky chances. God beasts, dead super geniuses, etc. Sky Spill is a lot more limited because of the time and space being messed with. And most of the lucky chances would be in the Sea of miracles or the Abyss, and getting in there and finding good things is easier said than done.

    1. stuff like that makes me roll my eyes. like, it if were a woman and me in bed with a guy, I’d not be enjoying myself, because I’m not into women like that. unless the women are into other women, a scenario like that just shows how selfish the dude is and how willing the women are to sublimate themselves to his sexual pleasure (in a way I’m sure he would not be willing to reciprocate). my two cents 😉

      1. Your comment doesn’t make sense. Just cuz you have a threesome doesn’t mean the females have to be attracted to each other. That’s like saying if you had a three some with two dudes, the dudes would have to ram each other. Does that even make sense? If you and another female have a threesome, it’s up to you and her if you both want to partake in sexual activities with each other or just the male.

        1. meh, of course women can enjoy FFM threesomes without being gay, the same way men can enjoy MMF threesomes without being gay. (somehow, this kind of scene doesn’t occur in xianxia novels nearly as often. hmmmmmmmm. I wonder why.) I don’t buy that explanation in this case, because look at the setting of this world, where (right path) women cultivators like his wives *blush* when a man touches them. Suddenly after marriage, and one right after losing her virginity, I’m supposed to believe they decide to jump into a FFM threesome naturally? BS. Clearly wish fulfillment on the part of a horny author. I will continue to roll my eyes every time I read one of these scenes in a xianxia. Sue me if you think my judgment is wrong.

          1. Dude, the husband is going a way for who knows how long, they’d definitely be horny, plus ming needs descendants too, so it needs to be done, lol

          2. What one night? It’s been over a year since they got married. Seems like a decent amount of time to stop being a blushing bride. Was it necessary for the author to write it? No. Is it unlikely to have happened? No.

          3. actually he said he was gonna be there 1-2 years so its not after one night its already been months since the marriage. I get what ur saying but most readers the author writes to are male infact most xianxia novels are read by males…STRAIGHT(mostly) males so im confused by ur comment. It was either god of slaughter or WMW that had a woman who cultivated sexually an was the biggest wh0re, it was nice seeing a true female pimp instead of always seeing these male wh0res. I AM GOING TO BE SOOOOO FREAKING PISSED if he leaves them without children like wtf u arse

          4. I agree with you, GreedoSh0tFirst. The author is, like a lot of xianxia authors, pandering to horny straight men. Which is his prerogative, just like it’s my prerogative to roll my eyes at the obviousness and find it disgusting. What pisses me off is when those same horny straight men get upset because I express my disdain, and start going on about how it’s completely believable. Yeah, believable like Penthouse letters.

      2. @ alex,

        there is nothing wrong with not liking a 3some. I’ve never been a fan after trying a few times, just awkward, like most stuff you see in porn, made to be looked at not really made to be fun. But then that’s me. I know guys who’d kill to be in a 3some. Or who have done it and would do it again. I assume there are women in the same boat. Some who like the idea, some who don’t. It isn’t that farfetched that a man and his two wives might get a little kinky together, just to try it out. Doesn’t mean the girls are playing with each other either.

        Of course it’s written to be titillating, if an author doesn’t write a book that his readers will like on some level no one will read it. We’re reading a book about some dude who mastered “heavenly dao” and can smash mountains with a halberd. Of all the things for you to object to as “unbelievable” I can’t really wrap my head about it being the semi plausible if unlikely 3some in a polygamous marriage. Not really the lowest hanging fruit to have an issue with in this fantasy novel.

        1. The only reason I remarked on it is because up to this point the MC has been far from the type of person to indulge in a threesome. I find it out of character for both him — who till now has been portrayed as someone who doesn’t indulge in his lusts — and his wives, who fit the holy unapproachable maiden model of women, given the entire novel until now. It annoys me that the author casually tossed in a threesome that’s out of character for whatever reason: his titillation, or fan service. If this were a novel that were lecherous from the start, presuming that I kept reading it, I’d’ve just rolled my eyes and keep it moving.

          1. I kind of agree that it’s out of character and somewhat out of place. But the reason it’s there is the bigger problem; after hundreds upon hundreds of chapters of MC getting stronger to get to the peak of the continent, the climax of which is just going to be brushed over in a short few sentences. ‘His wives’ -who’s names are clearly not important anymore, as they are evidently no longer real characters worthy of interaction or conversation, just like his parents, sister, Yunyue, etc. No, just “and then they all did lots of happy entertaining stuff for one year and went everywhere and enjoyed themselves and blabla”. It’s a boring summary and the only reason it’s there is to hide how completely unimportant Lin Mings, ‘everyone’ is to him now. All of his relationships are irrelevant, the only thing he apparently cares about now is power and getting more of it. Which is perhaps even more out of character given all that has been shown about his supposed morals and ‘care’ for his family thus far. But oh well. I have just resolved myself that this is a story where romance, family and close relationships of any kind no longer exist. Same way with TMW.

          2. I feel what you’re saying. It’s not too much of a problem for me, because LM never really seemed like a family guy from the beginning. IMO a lot of MCs pay lip service to familial piety, but that’s more of an artificial device to move the plot forward than something you feel in their bones (I’m thinking of BTTH specifically). If you want an MC who really cares about his family, check out Lord Xue Ying. So far, he only has one wife 😉

          1. tbh, in almost every Xinxia/wuxia, the mc’s make the worst parents/masters. most of them just ditch their children/disciples for the pursuit of cultivation…

          2. we have goku as an example (although not xinxia/wuxia) for that and of course they all have one common trait that is to sacrifice anything for family even their own lives

  1. Seriously.. this author can’t miss a chapter without adding “A rapist villain” or “Sexual encounters”.. ugh

    Harem is just disgusting…

    1. rape and sex are hardly present in this novel, it was mentioned waaay more earlier on when his biggest enemy was a faction that solely cultivated ying yang (sex) laws…..

      also, making sure the people you care about don’t get raped (killed or both)when you’re away seems kinda important?

      harem isn’t inherently disgusting, the only reason why people nowadays view it as such is because monogamy (and certain religions that push that) is the norm now, and even despite that, plenty of people still have healthy 3 person + relationships. (you just can’t marry more than 1 person at a time in a lot of countries)

      1. harem, in most or at least all the xianxia novels that i have read which have harem, is disgusting because of the simple fact that the girls in these novels simply don’t have a personality. They easily accept being one of the multiple wives, no objections whatsoever. let’s be honest here, harem only exists in these novels because it meets the common denominator which will bring many readers and is only a wish fulfillment. i have yet to see an author even try to develop a harem

  2. Okey didn’t LM agree to marry at first because his parents wanted a grandchild since he would never be home? So shouldn’t he fix that first before ascending?

  3. …allowing Lin Ming to hold them both at night and enjoy the blessings of two wives…

    Meng Hao you’ve been given the chance, don’t disappoint me. Learn from Lin Ming.

  4. So…I guess his drive to be stronger now is because it’d be cool??? How grand. I can see why nothing in the universe would be able to stop him from achieving his goal of being cooler than he is now as the strongest person in his world. He’s a boring enough character when he has legitimate driving purposes behind him already. I hope something crazy happens or he meets some actually interesting characters
