Book 5: Chapter 213: Long Zhanguo Is Not Dead
When the Life Executioner Saber swung down, Long Zhanguo exploded to bits.
The world fell silent.
The Supreme Singularitys spiritual souls, Kong Xuan, Zang Yulian, Sect Master Heavenly Access, Jiang Lianshan, Ji Dihong, the Three Lives Buddhas, even the Six Paths Immortal were all silent.
It was not because of how capable Gu Hai was.
Rather, no one expected that it would be Gu Hai.
Isnt he Long Zhanguos closest confidant In the end, Long Zhanguo died at the hands of his most trusted man
Time seemed to have stopped.
Deafening thunder roared in the Qian Heavenly Dynastys territory in the crimson-cloud-covered Divine Continent.
The unconscious Qian Nation citizens trembled as though suddenly startled awake by something.
When they came to their senses, they still felt sapped of energy.
However, their hearts suddenly felt empty, like a spiritual guide in their hearts had disappeared.
The empty heart felt even more terrifying than the weak body.
Although they did not see Long Zhanguo die, they all felt it at this moment.
The Qian Heavenly Dynasty crumbled here.
“Your Holy Eminence!” someone suddenly cried out.
“Your Holy Eminence! Sob! Sob! Sob! Sob! Sob!”
“Sob! Sob! Sob! May His Holy Eminence enjoy boundless longevity! Long live Your Holy Eminence! May Your Holy Eminence live for ten thousand years! Your Holy Eminence! Sob! Sob! Sob!”
Bawling broke out.
All the citizens in the Qian Nations sixteen provinces started crying miserably.
Many knelt with much difficulty.
However, without the guidance of the blessings cloud sea, these cries could not reach Long Zhanguo.
Even so, the cries of the many citizens seemed to have moved the world, reaching the Heavenly Realm.
“Wicked citizens!” the Six Paths Immortal suddenly shouted coldly.
Only one of the Six Paths Immortals eyes remained in the sky.
This eye had many cracks in it, leaking blood and water.
As time passed, the cracks in the Heavenly Realm slowly mended.
The people outside—Sect Master Heavenly Access and the others—could no longer see in.
Sect Master Heavenly Access, Ji Dihong, and the Three Lives Buddhas had a somber light in their eyes.
They had not expected todays battle to be so intense.
Only Jiang Lianshan showed a bitter smile, apparently mourning Long Zhanguo.
In the Heavenly Realm:
After all the cracks had mended, Gu Hai looked at Heavens eye.
“Reporting to Heaven.
Gu Hai has killed Long Zhanguo to demonstrate my sincere convictions.
I would like to use these contributions to redeem my offenses!”
When Gu Hai shouted, everyone in the surroundings trembled as they understood everything.
The Rebel Sin Ranking Gu Hai is ranked second No wonder he wanted to kill Long Zhanguo!
Gu Hai could kill the Supreme Wa and Long Zhanguo to live This Gu Hai is ruthless!
The stele in the distance was still there.
Suddenly, Gu Hais name vanished from the second rank.
Even though Long Zhanguo was dead, the Six Paths Immortals hatred did not pass.
The stele grew larger.
It looked like Heaven intended to pursue this matter.
“Reporting to Heaven, this humble one is Long Shenying.
I would like my contributions to offset my offenses!” Long Shenying suddenly shouted.
“Huh You You just killed people who betrayed the Qian Heavenly Nation.
To think that you want to use that to offset your offenses” the Supreme Singularitys spiritual souls sneered.
“Reporting to Heaven, Long Zhanguo made some backup plans before this battle so that he could revive himself in case of failure.
He left behind his will and consciousness.
Only this humble one knows about it.
This humble one is willing to offer up Long Zhanguos will and consciousness for contributions to offset my offenses!” Long Shenying shouted.
“What” The distant Supreme Singularitys expression changed.
The Supreme Singularity had seen Long Zhanguos horrifying might for himself.
He did not want to see Long Zhanguo ever again.
Yet, Long Zhanguo had a backup
The pupil of Heavens eye constricted as well.
Long Shenying took out a jade box and opened it.
A blue light burst forth from the jade box.
An aura unique to Long Zhanguo spread out.
“Long Zhanguo!” the Six Paths Immortal shouted coldly.
Long Shenying extended his hand and exploded the box in his palm, destroying the blue light and Long Zhanguos will and consciousness, reducing them to dust.
“This humble one, Long Shenying, asks for my contributions to offset my offenses!” Long Shenying shouted once again.
Long Shenyings name suddenly vanished from the stele.
Destroying a chance for Long Zhanguo to revive
This was indeed a significant contribution.
It did not matter whether Long Zhanguo could climb back to his peak after reviving or not.
The Six Paths Immortal still feared him.
“Thank you, Heaven!” Long Shenying shouted.
“Reporting to Heaven! My Solar Divine Palace suffered countless injuries and deaths.
Many of the animal spirit kings and animal spirits died.
I ask Heaven to restore them all to life!” the Supreme Singularitys spiritual souls called out.
Right now, the Supreme Wa and the Supreme Genesis had not revived.
The three hundred-odd animal spirit kings that had operated the Cyclic Star Ritual Array had not revived.
His ten golden crow crown princes had not revived, either.
He could not let the accumulations of his Solar Divine Palace disappear.
The Six Paths Immortal looked at the distant Rebel Sin Ranking.
Countless people on the ranking had already died.
Now, only three thousand names remained.
“All beings of the world, listen to my order.
Everyone on this Rebel Sin Ranking has to be pursued and killed.
For every one you kill, I will grant you lifespan.
The amount rewarded will decrease with the rankings.
Killing the first rank grants three thousand years.
Killing the second rank grants two thousand nine hundred ninety-nine, and so forth.
The Solar Divine Palace, the Myriad Age Daoist Sect, and the Spirit Mountain Holy Land are to go all out in pursuing them.
If they are not all dead within twenty years, I will take back the blessings of the three holy lands.
Kill! Kill! Kill!” the Six Paths Immortal roared.
The stele suddenly grew by ten thousand times and flew out of the Heavenly Realm and into the Divine Continent.
Then, it landed on top of the sea outside the fusang tree.
Sect Master Heavenly Access, the Three Lives Buddhas, Jiang Lianshan, and Ji Dihong looked at it with wide eyes.
At the same time, in the Heavenly Realm:
A vast fog suddenly swept up.
Various spiritual souls appeared within the fog.
“Im not dead”
“Didnt Long Zhanguo kill me I came back to life”
“The golden crow crown princes too They came back to life”
Enveloped by Immortal Energy, the dead members of the Solar Divine Palace revived.
Those that revived felt incredibly excited.
Although they did not have a physical body, having their three spiritual souls was already sufficient.
They could plunder anothers body, reincarnate, or use energy to reforge a physical body.
Anything was possible.
Countless animal spirits felt excited.
Then, the vast fog covered the surroundings, shifting everything in the Heavenly Realm outside.
“Heaven sent us out of the Heavenly Realm Is the Heavenly Realm going to move Oh, right, the Heavenly Realms location has been exposed.
The Six Paths Immortal will be even more cautious.
Unfortunately, my Primal Chaos Bell is already gone.
Huh Where is the Supreme Wa Where is the Supreme Genesis Where are their spiritual souls” The Supreme Singularity glared as he looked around the fog in shock.
However, the fog was extremely thick, veiling the surrounding people.
In the vast fog, Gu Hai carried Zang Yulian as he said to her, “Play the Supreme Ascendant Longevity Piece.
Ill bring you away from here.”
“Ah Havent you already been removed from the Rebel Sin Ranking by Heaven” Zang Yulian took out her guqin, looking confused.
“Indeed, I was removed from the Rebel Sin Ranking.
However, the entire world wants to kill me now.
The Supreme Singularity wants to kill me, Long Shenying wants to kill me, Jiang Lianshan wants to kill me, even the Three Lives Buddhas want to kill me.
Perhaps Sect Master Heavenly Access wants to kill me too.
Now that I am no longer in the Heavenly Realm, the Immortal Energy is gone.
I am not a match for them, so I should leave for a while,” Gu Hai said with a bitter smile.
Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!
The Supreme Ascendant Longevity Piece started playing.
Gu Hai took out the Heaven Suppressing Divine Imperial Seal and operated the black Go stone on it.
A finger-sized black hole immediately appeared and started growing.
The black hole grew increasingly larger, eventually forming a tunnel a person could enter.
“This…what is this” Zang Yulian exclaimed.
As Gu Hai carried Zang Yulian, his figure flashed, entering the black hole.
Buzz! The black hole suddenly vanished.
“Where is Gu Hai Search for him! Find Gu Hai!” the Supreme Singularity suddenly roared furiously as he glared.
“Gu Hai is with the Supreme Ascendant! I heard the Supreme Ascendant Longevity Piece earlier.
The inside of the vast fog immediately turned chaotic.
Unfortunately, Gu Hai had already vanished with Zang Yulian into the black hole tunnel.
The black holes entrance had also closed.
Zang Yulian repeatedly played the Supreme Ascendant Longevity Piece in the black hole, while Gu Hai operated the Heaven Suppressing Divine Imperial Seal.
The two moved quickly in the tunnel.
“Where…where is this Where are we going” Zang Yulian asked worriedly.
“Theres no rush.
You will know when we arrive.
It is a place that you wish to go to, even in your dreams.
It is also the true secret behind the Supreme Ascendant Longevity Piece,” Gu Hai said with a smile.
“Ah” Zang Yulian appeared confused.
Zang Yulians playing had long become muscle memory already.
Although she did not understand what Gu Hai meant, she did not dwell on it, as she would find out soon.
“Gu Hai, I dont understand something.
You…why did you kill the Supreme Wa Also, why did you kill Long Zhanguo in the end Are you terrified of dying, so you did that to negate your offenses” Zang Yulian looked at Gu Hai in confusion.
“Kill the Supreme Wa Hah! I only did it to prevent her from suffering too much.
Long Zhanguo Probably the same as well,” Gu Hai said with a bitter smile.
“What kind of excuse is that They died at your hands, yet you are not embarrassed to say you did it to prevent them from suffering” Zang Yulian felt uncomfortable in her heart as she looked at Gu Hai.
Gu Hai clearly did it to wash himself of his offenses, yet he made it sound so glorious.
Did I misjudge him Is he actually just a despicable person Thinking this, Zang Yulian felt frustrated.
“Who said that they are dead” Gu Hai suddenly said with a smile.
“There is no use arguing…huh Wait, what did you say” Zang Yulian said with shock in her eyes.
Suddenly, the tunnel shook.
“Dont stop playing.
Otherwise, we will die in this tunnel!” Gu Hai cried out in alarm.
“Oh! Oh!” Zang Yulian immediately resumed playing.
The tunnel stabilized.
“What did you say earlier They are not dead Didnt you kill them How are they not dead” Zang Yulian exclaimed.
“If someone else killed them, the Six Paths Immortal would have suppressed their three spiritual souls or even destroyed them on the spot.
However, it is different for me.
The spiritual souls of everyone I kill remain with me.
As long as their three spiritual souls are around, they are around.
When we get to Earth, I will think of a way to reconstruct their physical bodies and bring them back to life,” Gu Hai said.
“Ah You-you stole the Supreme Was and Long Zhanguos three spiritual souls from under the Six Paths Immortals nose” Zang Yulians eyes opened so wide, they were as big as saucers.
“To me, the definition of death is having ones souls destroyed.
So, the Supreme Wa and Long Zhanguo are not dead yet.” Gu Hai smiled.
“Huh” Zang Yulian appeared shocked.
After some pause, Zang Yulian said, “You said earlier,when we get to Earth. Earth Where is that”
