“What’s the point of this jibber-jabber, Chancellor Demi-Immortal?” Yang Qi said. “Things between us can only be resolved by one of us dying. Either I die and you live, or the other way around. There won’t be any ‘calling things even’. Based on the memories I just got from the kid in yellow, I know that you’re supposed to have a promising future. You’ll eventually get the legacy of an immortal world and become its ruler. Sadly, that’s not going to happen now. You fell into my hands, thus, you’re going to die.”
At this point, Chancellor Demi-Immortal realized that he had no hope whatsoever of getting out of this situation alive.
Grinding his teeth, he said, “You really don’t want to know where your Aunt Susu is? You could turn the mortal world upside down looking for her, but you’ll never find her. I can tell you, if you kill me, you’ll never see her again.”
“What?” Yang Qi said, his eyes flashing. All he knew was that his Aunt Susu had been taken away to the Spritefolk. After destroying the Demi-Immortal Institute and unifying the planetary system, he then went on to conquer other planetary systems, starting with the holy lands of true cultivation. Yet the Spritefolk were nowhere to be found, and he didn’t have any clues about how to find them.
He had an odd feeling about the whole thing. It was almost as if there was some mysterious force out there manipulating everyone who was important to him.
Perhaps it was a conspiracy backed by Proud Heaven, or perhaps it was someone else.
In any case, he was constantly on his guard because of it. And the fact that Chancellor Demi-Immortal had brought the subject up now immediately sparked his anger. “It would have been a lot better for you if you hadn’t mentioned that. All you’ve done is ensured that I’ll track down every last patriarch from the Demi-Immortal Institute and slaughter them all. I won’t even give them a chance to transmigrate. As for you, I'm going to send you to reunite with your daughter in death too!”
He waved his head, and Chancellor Demi-Immortal exploded into a cloud of blood and gore, leaving behind only a lingering cry. “You’re going to die for this, Yang Qi! I curse you for all eternity! You’ll never find your aunt or your mother again!”
“Nice curse, but thankfully I have this Rancorous Emperor śarīra.” Chuckling, Yang Qi used the śarīra to absorb the power of the curse. At the same time, he realized that there was something in Chancellor Demi-Immortal’s remains that connected to a mysterious treasure hoard, perhaps the legacy of an immortal world.
‘So he really was supposed to get some sort of immortal’s legacy. Sadly, the young man in yellow was planning to betray you the first chance he got. And you were planning to do the same thing. No wonder the two of you never accomplished much together.” After assimilating Chancellor Demi-Immortal, Yang Qi also took the legacy that he had acquired.
Interestingly, it wasn’t from a minor place like the Titan Emperor Heaven, but rather a much larger immortal world.
According to the memories of the young man in yellow, it was a place that could rival the Tusita Heaven, the Mourn-Parting Heaven, or even the Hell of Mahānata. And it was a legacy that couldn’t be benefited from without reaching the Godmyth level first.
With Chancellor Demi-Immortal dead, all that remained was Proud Warpatience. Yang Qi was still set on forcing him to acknowledge allegiance, thus creating the perfect pawn to use against Proud Heaven in the future.
“Yang Qi, why don’t we start working with King Immortal-Slayer’s medallions?” Princess Jadefall said, opening her eyes. “With your God Legion Seal to suppress them, we should be able to acquire the power to enter the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. According to the stories, there are hoards of god items there, and numerous primeval godworms.
“The power of that Future One was immense, and it’s a struggle for me to keep it under control. It will take me some time before I can fully assimilate it. That said, it will definitely push me into the Godmyth level within ten years. Before, I’d expected it to take three thousand years or more. This is really going to benefit our immortal world.”
Obviously, Princess Jadefall didn’t dare to work with King Immortal-Slayer’s legacy medallions on her own. The most ancient of daoist texts all said that whoever took control of the medallions would eventually be violently killed. And the fate that the young man in yellow had just suffered was still fresh in her mind.
“Alright, take them out,” Yang Qi said.
She waved her hand and the medallions flew out, three streaks of black light that pulsed with the power of a monarch.
‘What a treasure,’ Yang Qi thought. ‘Sadly, it's diametrically opposed to my God Legion Seal. Until I reach a vastly higher level than I’m at now, I won’t be able to combine them. But with Princess Jadefall to act as the intermediary, at least I can benefit a bit.’
Yang Qi was actually very familiar with these medallions now. There were nine of them, which conformed to the adage nine divided by nine is one. Right now, the other medallions were out in parts unknown. However, Yang Qi knew that eventually they would find their way together, and when they did, the mysterious secrets of King Immortal-Slayer would be revealed.
“Heaven and Earth Resonance! Immortal-Slaying Godpower!” Yang Qi waved his finger and the God Legion Seal stirred.
The golden imp waved his finger in an exact reflection of what Yang Qi had just done. As a result, the medallions began glowing with radiance and light. Yet again, the soul of a powerful monarch appeared, mighty and fierce, the type who wanted to put an end to the dao of immortals.
It was the will of King Immortal-Slayer himself.
And when it crossed the will of the God Legion Seal, it caused an explosive tempest to spring up, the likes of which could destroy anything and everything.
Princess Jadefall very nearly coughed up a mouthful of blood, and a serious expression overtook Yang Qi’s face.
“Excellent,” he said, “The two mighty wills have collided. Let us continue our cultivation within the maelstrom. This tempering will strengthen us beyond imagination.” His entire person began shining with a brilliant light that wrapped up Princess Jadefall as they entered the tempest.
Instantly, flows of power stabbed into their bodies, threatening to kill them. Thankfully, Yang Qi was strong enough to stave off the danger and harness the immortal-slayer’s power.
“God Legion Seal: Destroy the Many Heavens, Suppress the Deathless!” Blood of the One God merged with the God Legion Seal and sent out a boundless god light that suppressed the power of King Immortal-Slayer’s medallions.
As the moments ticked by, something like a golden shell began forming on the surface of the medallions. They twitched, they wriggled, and it looked as though they might possibly be able to break free.
“Be subdued!” Yang Qi said, and the medallions tumbled down into his hand.
“Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart entrance, appear!” An enormous wormhole opened up in front of them, belching the energy of monarchs.
“It's the entrance to the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart!” Princess Jadefall exclaimed. “Yang Qi, did you really fuse with the legacy medallions?”
Yang Qi shook his head. “No. They’re too difficult to fuse with, and I can sense that King Immortal-Slayer’s curse still lives inside them. If you fuse with them, you really will die a violent death. Then your energy will be stored to eventually resurrect King Immortal-Slayer. I've used the power of my God Legion Seal to suppress his will and tap into some of his abilities. That's how I opened this entrance to the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. What a pity this is all I can do….”
The medallions were starting to tremble more and more violently, as if they refused to be restrained and demanded to fly free. There was obviously no way he could fully control them.
“It is a pity,” Princess Jadefall said. “That said, the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart is the stuff of legend. Let's get inside and find some god items, or even better, its core!”
“There’s no hurry. I can use the power I already have to open this entrance at any time. Great storms are about to hit the immortal worlds and we need to be ready. If we were to be invaded, we could be destroyed in the blink of an eye. The best thing to do now is to get back and take control of the Titan Emperor Heaven. With the crown prince dead, we can simply head back, force the emperor to abdicate, and make you the new empress. If you work hard to improve the place, and I back you with my fiend-devil armies, we can conquer the Hanging Heaven and get access to even more resources. After your power is solidified, I’ll go to the Brahman Society, destroy them, and take over the Thirty-Six Thousand Immortal Worlds Coalition.”
“Alright,” Princess Jadefall said. Then she looked over at the final remaining foe, Proud Warpatience. “What about him?”
Proud Warpatience had been enduring torment this whole time, to the point that his flesh was blackened.
“I’ll do it!” he wailed. “I’ll join you, Yang Qi. From now on, I serve you, Milord!”
“Fine,” Yang Qi said. He waved his hand, sending a stream of black energy into Proud Warpatience. “I'm placing a devil seed in your nascent divinity, which will ensure that you truly acknowledge allegiance to me in my fight against Proud Heaven. If you serve me faithfully, I’ll never need to use that devil seed. Furthermore, I'm changing your name. You’re no longer Proud Warpatience. You’re Yang Warpatience.”
“Yes, yes of course, Milord,” he said, scrambling to kowtow to Yang Qi. “Your humble servant Yang Warpatience is at your service.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
