Chapter 1905 - Defying the World and Living Eight Lives
Even though he was in his later years, white hair scattering down his shoulders, life force dried-up, he still stood tall, standing at the summit alone, gazing into the distance. How could he be willing to resign himself like this?
These years, those people, they all gradually became distant. The past voices and smiling faces, the past joys and sorrows, they appeared in his turbid eyes.
“I miss all of you.” Shi Hao said.
Stone Village, Fire Mulberry Forest, Desolate Border…
Scenes went by one after another, the years already far behind!
The past Little Stone was now already old. In the past, this name spread throughout the world, but in the end, it would be buried under the endless passage of time, forgotten by the people.
It was hard to imagine that the past devilish brat was already old and gray-haired. He sighed under the blood-colored setting sun. He was past his prime!
His remnant thoughts were still too deep, impossible to let them go. He mysteriously entered this world, as if he cut off all karma of the previous world. He couldn’t even see some familiar friends before he passed on.
Emperor Collapse was endless, the great era without end. However, what did this have to do with him? Shi Hao was like a solitary spirit wandering the world of mortals. Everything became silent, his eyes began to close.
When he reached his limit, in Shi Hao’s Sea of Reincarnation, cracks appeared one after another. These were time fragments, his Wheel of Life was about to break apart.
He released a light shout. A streak of light appeared, hacking at his source, wishing to cut away the decaying elements, completely cut off the cracking parts.
It was like a sick tree cutting off parts damaged by insects, and then struck by lightning. The tree was blasted apart under the lightning flames, collapsing and falling apart, while the tree roots were still there, waiting for new life.
He used the body as the seed, so the greatest essence was hidden within the dao seed. His cultivation was also entrusted within, primordial spirit also hidden within.
On the entire divine mountain, chaotic energy overflowed. Shi Hao’s life dried up, falling down here. Then, there was actually boundless lightning radiance that descended, crashing down.
This was an extremely terrifying thing. When he approached the absolute limit, he could actually guide down heavenly tribulation.
After a long time passed, the body known to be sturdy and unbreaking, baptised for thirty thousand years, now broke apart, becoming full of holes.
However, there was also a type of transformation that happened. Within the degeneration, there was a hint of life energy spreading.
Just like the lightning tribulation was originally the source of destruction, but what hid within was a strand of life force, containing a pool of Lightning Tribulation Liquid.
Shi Hao lingered between life and death. At this moment, it was as if he saw the scene of Willow Deity being hacked down by boundless immortal dao lightning in the Nine Heavens.
Then, his consciousness became hazy. When this place quieted down, the mountain range was crushed into powder, becoming a scorched black abyss.
At the bottom of the abyss, there were star remains, all of them massive stars that were hacked down. There were also charred black remains, silent and unmoving.
A few years later, a bit of life energy swirled about, released from the scorched black body. It was like a lightning struck tree, containing a bit of vitality, about to carry out a miracle.
Then, for another half year, the life force gradually became stronger until finally, a sphere of light suddenly surged. The scorched black remains released pi pa noises, starting to revive.
In the end, many old bones were shed, even more so a layer of black old skin removed.
Shi Hao was reborn, returning to his younger state, surging with blood energy, his essence energy flourishing to the extreme!
He lived a second live, hacking off the decaying. A dao seed surged in his body, essence blood flowing, returning to his body. There were many gates within his body that were opened.
This life had many more gates opened than the last.
This was the embodiment of the body as a seed, his dao results even more so taking a step forward!
After living for more than thirty thousand years, he cultivated an unmatched body in the Mortal Dao Domain. He had even greater potential than in the last life, having even greater advantages!
“I can’t wait anymore, I want to go against the great dao suppression of the heavens, attack at immortal ascension!” Shi Hao said quietly.
This was a complicated era. Scars remained from the death of emperors, true immortal laws covering the sky dome, imprints left behind by immortal kings. All of this surrounded the world, blocking the advancement of later creatures.
For Shi Hao, this was a terrible age!
However, if he could succeed in this type of circumstances, then his achievements would really be unimaginable!
In this life, Shi Hao only went out once. After endless years passed, he went looking for long life medicine.
Then, he abandoned all other thoughts, focused only on achieving immortality. He wanted to go back, to cultivate unrivaled divine abilities, matchless methods, go to the places he should go to.
The past Nine Heavens Ten Earths, the great showdown, could it be considered to have begun?
Many faces appeared in his mind. He was scared of disappearing forever, that he would never be able to see them again.
In this life, he really had a huge advantage. His body was incomparable, cultivation reaching the absolute limit, even stronger than before. This was where his confidence lay.
“I want to become a war immortal!” Shi Hao’s voice was low.
This world was suppressed by immortal dao laws, engravings and others, so there was no way of achieving immortality. In order to go through that path, it could be said to be going against the world.
The years were like water, passing without coming back!
Shi Hao attacked at it again and again, continuously trying things out. It was extremely fierce, not scared of the consequences, just wishing to become a war immortal!
This was extremely dangerous, just too fierce, easy for him to collapse.
In this world, Shi Hao was spiritually weary, his strength exhausted. He had been attacking at this bottleneck this entire life, his body riddled with scars, condition never improving. If not for his foundation being horrifyingly sturdy, he would have died a long time ago.
Despite this being the case, the domineering methods still brought him terrifying damage. As the years accumulated, his lifespan was actually about to dry up.
One had to understand that only ten thousand years had passed in this life!
Compared to his last life’s lifespan, he should be far from reaching his limit.
After several decades more, Shi Hao couldn’t hold on anymore. Even though his body released a powerful aura, his life force was dried-up. He was reaching the limit of this life.
He produced a stalk of medicine, placing it into his mouth, devouring it. This was an undying immortal medicine he picked.
In this life, he only departed on a great journey once, using up several hundred years, all for the sake of finding this stalk of medicine.
After all this time in this realm, he naturally knew which places had great opportunities, where undying immortal medicines might be hidden.
Age of Emperor Collapse, a stalk of immortal medicine left behind from the great battle was found by him.
That night, divine light rushed into the heavens. The past long life medicine already declined, its medicinal nature was now similar to a stalk of divine medicine.
It couldn’t help Shi Hao achieve immortality, it could only help him live for another life.
Shi Hao’s third life began, now already living past forty thousand years.
He was completely devoted to immortal ascension!
He wanted to go back, he wanted to rise up, he wanted to become a war immortal in this secular realm!
Unfortunately, it really was too difficult. Someone as powerful as Shi Hao, before he reached five hundred years of age, he already became a supreme being. Before he reached a thousand years of age, he was viewed as the Emperor of the Mortal Dao Domain by true immortals, yet now, he was trapped.
He couldn’t take that step, unable to achieve immortality!
In this third life, Shi Hao lived for forty thousand years. Even though he had a stalk of undying immortal medicine in hand, long properly grown, it was still useless for him.
The undying great medicine allowed him to live an extra life, but that was all. He developed tolerance for the long life medicine’s effects, this was the case for any creature. He could only use medicinal effects to grant him an extra life once.
In the end, while in desperate straits, Shi Hao began to exchange blood, tempering his bones and cleansing his marrow, switching precious blood. All of his blood flowed out, turning into fair light.
This was a type of transformation, not a natural biological transformation, but rather one forcefully spurred on. All of the blood was ignited, even his skin was burning in this great dao fiery light.
True Phoenix cries sounded, ringing through the heavens.
He grasped the True Phoenix Precious Technique. This clan’s unmatched inheritance was a rebirth method. He had studied it for forty thousand years now. Now, he was seeking life, there was only that one opportunity.
While bathed in flames, all of his old blood eliminated, a fierce immortal bird cry sounded. While accompanied by great dao rumbling sounds, Shi Hao’s body shook intensely. In his bone marrow, within his body, new blood was being created!
He succeeded, living a fourth life.
His life span in this life was extremely abundant, able to live fifty to sixty thousand years!
Together with the previous three worlds’ lifespans, when the fourth life ended, Shi Hao already lived for over a hundred and twenty-six thousand years.
In this fourth life, during the endless fifty thousand years, Shi Hao not only cultivated bitterly, trying to attack at the immortal ascension, he also comprehended all types of formations.
In the Age of Emperor Collapse, the great battle had just ended. There were naturally all types of remains and lost inheritances, Shi Hao gathered all of the precious texts on formation dao.
Eventually, after using fifty thousand years, carefully studying them, he could already be considered an unmatched formation master.
Before the fourth life came to an end, Shi Hao established a world shocking great formation. All of the boundless land’s nine places of natural luck were connected. Even if they were separated by millions and millions of li, they were all linked up together through his formations.
He created an unmatched great formation, burying himself in the eye of the formation, acquiring the essence of nine great natural luck lands.
He was like a divine egg that was nurtured and baptized. These were various sources of natural luck! Even though they weren’t all of the ones that existed in the entire great realm, it was still heaven-defying enough.
Shi Hao used this to live a fifth life, transforming like a divine core. He shed an entire human skin, forcing out old bones from his flesh one after another, being reborn.
The world’s profound mysteries were carefully studied, natural essence gathered through formations, producing an opportunity for rebirth.
Then, there was a sixth life, a seventh life…
Shi Hao used all of his methods to continue living, reviving again and again when he was in his later years. It was extremely difficult, but he did it.
Each life, his lifespan would be greatly lengthened. This allowed him to see hope, seeing a direction.
Immortal ascension was extremely difficult, heaven and earth were locked down. Even someone as powerful as Shi Hao now didn’t have any way of truly defying the heavens.
However, as he continued living one life after another, this was perhaps the most heaven-defying thing about him. It was even more terrifying than truly achieving immortality!
In the past, who could do something like this? One great era, being able to live a second life was already pitifully few. Even if one didn’t say that there were none who could live a third life, it was something that only appeared in legends, impossible to use as reference.
Shi Hao already lived for seven lives. This was something that had never happened before since ancient times.
A creature this powerful, normally, in an environment where immortal ascension is possible, would have long done so. Where would they need to struggle so much?
When Shi Hao was four hundred thousand years old, he finally lived an eighth life. His blood energy surged, yang energy vigorous, recovering his youth, standing at the peak of his entire life.
“I don’t need the acknowledgement of the so-called world. Even if I continue living just like this, would I be weaker than immortal dao creatures?!” Shi Hao roared towards the heavens.
Eight lives of accumulation, his dao skills were now inconceivably great, no one able to match him in Mortal Dao. Perhaps it could be said that he already entered a whole different level.
If a true immortal brandished his arms against him, he dared face them.
Originally, he already stood at the absolute peak of Mortal Dao. Now that he had eight worlds of accumulation, it was unimaginable. His dao skills were actually still advancing, this was simply unimaginable.
If one still wanted to use supreme being to describe Shi Hao’s cultivation level, it was already not enough!
Even with the title of Emperor that true immortals used to describe him, it still seemed a bit lacking.
This was especially the case in his eighth life, his lifespan shockingly long. In this life, when he lived past ninety thousand years, he was still in his golden age, not dying of old age. Meanwhile, right now, with his eight lives added together, it was already four hundred and ninety thousand years.
Moreover, in this eighth life, his divine awareness became more and more sharp, capturing shocking information.
He saw the great river of time more than once, seeing its rise and fall.
Moreover, he also saw experts who looked into the distance one after another, either tracing back to the past or overlooking endless time.
“It’s him!” One day, he personally saw a Heavenly Horned Ant entirely drenched in blood. In the endless river of time, they exchanged a look.
Shi Hao was stunned. The father of that little Heavenly Horned Ant was one of the Vicious Ten.
He remembered the time when he opened Heavenly Deity Institution’s underground palace, the first time he saw the imprints of the Heavenly Horned Ant, he said that endless years ago, he seemed to have seen Shi Hao.
Now, Shi Hao released a light sigh, understanding clearly.
During the eighth life, Shi Hao reached the absolute peak of his life, able to dominate all under the sky.
Right now, he felt like even if he defiantly faced immortals, killing them wasn’t an issue. This wasn’t purely because of a type of powerful confidence, but rather because he also had immeasurable strength!
“I want to go back, return to my age…” Shi Hao said to himself.
He found his own path, he didn’t need the acknowledgment of this world. He went against the world just like that, continuing to live. Sooner or later, he would become an immortal!
What he was worried about was if the great showdown already began, if the people he recognized already died in the passage of time.
Different great eras, different worlds, the time that was involved, it was hard to say what exactly would happen.
“Embodiment Transformation Great Method…”
Shi Hao operated it again, deducing great methods. The reason he was able to come here was related to this, related to that stone room. Even after all these years, he still examined it from time to time.
Suddenly, he felt something strange!
“The world is changing, I can go back?”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
