Book 5: Chapter 120: Asura Path Secret Realm
The Cla.s.sic of the Dao and Virtue was deeply profound, much more perfect than the Supreme Ascendant Scripture. It contained the Taijis Dao of harmony between Yin and Yang. The Unborn Man immediately became engrossed when he started reading. Just reading for one day allowed him to feel some harmony between the life energy and the death energy in his body.
Gu Hai ignored the Unborn Man. He used the zither puppets to send a message to the heavenly court at a horrifying speed.
After making arrangements, Gu Hai went to a restricted area of the Han Royal Dynasty beside the palace, escorted by Gao Xianzhi, Meng Tai, and Gu Qin.
Many ritual arrays obscured the surroundings of the restricted area with boundless fog, preventing anyone from seeing it.
Many Han Nation soldiers stood guard outside; security was tight.

Salutations, Your Majesty! The guards immediately bowed respectfully when they saw Gu Hai.
Gu Hai nodded and walked to the front.
There was a large altar in the ritual array, with countless strange beasts carved on it. Each of these beasts had a pair of humongous horns on their heads. There were recesses in the surroundings filled with spirit stones.
Imperial Father, this ritual array has already been completed. What else needs to be done? Gu Qin asked.
Dongfang Bubai, Ximen Chuixue, Dugu Qiubai, and Zhang Sanfeng, protect us and prevent anyone from approaching, Gu Hai suddenly called out.
The four cloud beast experts immediately arrived outside the ritual array.
Then, Gu Hai activated one of the stones on the ritual array.
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
Energy suddenly poured into the altar in a certain order, turning the entire altar blue.
The blue light slowly coalesced at the altars center, forming a ball. This energy ball grew increasingly larger until it was thirty-three meters in diameter. Then, sinister energy poured out of the energy ball.
The expressions of Gao Xianzhi, Gu Qin, and Meng Tai changed. What is this?
At the same time, the expression of the Unborn Man, who was comprehending the Cla.s.sic of the Dao and Virtue in the palace, became solemn. He turned his head in the direction of the altar and looked over. He had sensed that strange, sinister aura as well.
Although the Unborn Man felt incredibly curious, he did not get up and go over.
Gu Hai is truly unusual, the Unborn Man said.
After some silence, he resumed studying the Cla.s.sic of the Dao and Virtue.
At the altar:
Gu Hai looked at the large blue ball and extended his hand to touch it.
The blue ball suddenly shot out a beam of blue light into Gu Hais body.
This is the feeling! Gu Hais face suddenly lit up in joy.
You all, touch it! Gu Hai instructed.
Gu Qin, Meng Tai, and Gao Xianzhi touched the blue ball, and beams of blue light entered their bodies.
This startled Gu Qin somewhat. What is this?
Suddenly, Gu Hai sat cross-legged. As he closed his eyes, his figure trembled.
Gu Hais spiritual souls suddenly separated from his body.
Gu Qin, Meng Tai, and Gao Xianzhi imitated Gu Hai. Their figures trembled, and their spiritual souls came out.
Your Majesty, we Gao Xianzhis spiritual souls looked at his body in shock.
Enter with us with your spiritual souls. Lets go, Gu Hai said.
Gu Hais spiritual souls stepped forward and immediately entered the huge ball of blue light, vanis.h.i.+ng.
Gao Xianzhi, Meng Tai, and Gu Qin followed close behind.
Everyones spiritual souls vanished from the altar, entering the ball of blue light.
The moment the group entered the ball of blue light, they reappeared at a large altar. This altar looked exactly like the one in Borderless Heavenly Capital. There was also an energy ball above the altar, but this one was black.
Suddenly, black energy poured in from the surroundings, enveloping the fours spiritual souls.
The black energy scattered. Then, the four looked at one another in shock. They saw that everyone had gained a body. However, these bodies were very strange and fiendish. They were entirely crimson, and muscles lay exposed on their bodies. There was also a pair of horns on their heads, which looked exceptionally sinister. Their faces seemed not to have skin, just muscle. There was a vague resemblance to their original appearance.
This is the Asura Secret Realm? Meng Tais expression suddenly changed.
We turned into asuras? Gao Xianzhis expression changed as well.
Imperial Father, what is going on? Gu Qin asked in shock.
Gu Hai ignored everyones shock. Instead, he looked up at the sky.
The Asura Path Secret Realm was different from the Human Path Secret Realm. There were surging dark clouds in the sky and a crimson light. There were no soul fragments in the dark clouds, only boundless pressure. The entire secret realm was dark.
Right now, the four were in a vast mountain range with many huge palace halls in the vicinity. The main palace hall in the center had a signboard, Slaughter Divine Palace.
In his asura body, Gu Hai walked towards the Slaughter Divine Palace.
A stone stele stood beside the Slaughter Divine Palace. Gu Hai looked at it.
Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty, slaughter heaven and earth. His Holy Eminence leads the army and tramples on the worlds path of reincarnation.
During the first year, the Divine Blood Army arrived near five asura nations and suffered heavy damage. More than half died. However, we constructed the Soul Reclaiming Altar, which can reconstruct the asura bodies. During the tenth year, we trampled on the five nations and slaughtered the nations.
In the Asura Secret Realm, one grows stronger by killing. The more one slaughters, the stronger one will be.
Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!
After one hundred years, the Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty swept through sixteen nations in the eastern region.
After one thousand years, the Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty swept its way through the realm. Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!
The Asura Secret Realm is where the evil people of the world gather. They do not know each other or their past, which lets them start anew.
After being here for two thousand years, we have killed one hundred million and chopped down one hundred eight asura kings.
After being here for three thousand years, the Divine Blood Army charged into the depths and challenged the strongest asura, Ming He. We lost!
After being here for four thousand years, His Holy Eminence led the army and challenged Ming He again. We lost!
After being here for five thousand years, His Holy Eminence led the army and challenged Ming He again. We drew!
After six thousand years of slaughtering in every direction, His Holy Eminence mustered the army and tried to kill Ming He. However, he sensed some change in his body in the land of the living, so he withdrew his army and returned to the Divine Continent.
There were not many words on the stone stele, but it made Meng Tai and the others gape.
The Asura Secret Realm? Meng Tai said in shock.
Word of the Human Path Secret Realm had arrived not long ago. Meng Tai was still processing the information from the heavenly courts cities. The Qian Heavenly Emperor had put in a lot of effort to enter the Human Path Secret Realm. Yet, Gu Hai managed to bring him into the Asura Secret Realm. As Meng Tai turned his head to look at Gu Hai, he felt even more respect.
Slaughter Divine Palace? This must be where the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor stayed in the past, Gao Xianzhi said in shock.
Many of the Slaughter Heavenly Dynastys belongings were placed in the surrounding palace halls. There were even some maps there.
Gu Hai took a quick look before leading the group to the summit of a tall mountain to look at this vast world.
This Asura Secret Realm was much larger than the Human Path Secret Realm. There seemed to be a large barrier protecting the fours location.
They could see many asuras killing each other outside the barrier.
A battlefield where one kills or gets killed? Six thousand years? No wonder the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor felt that six thousand years in this place was insufficient. However, it is all just slaughter. It does not temper the mind. It will take some time to clear ones mind, Gu Hai said.
Your Majesty, this is a holy land for training the military! Gao Xianzhi said excitedly.
Imperial Father, will the people you got me to prepare train here? Gu Qin asked in antic.i.p.ation.
Thats right. This world has the Soul Reclaiming Altar that the Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty built. They will not die and can come back to life. However, we have to use it cautiously. The four of us will test out the marvels of this Asura Secret Realm first, Gu Hai said.
Yes! the three answered excitedly.
Gu Hai led the three around the Slaughter Divine Palace and picked out some weapons. Then, they headed out of the barrier.
When the three reached the edge of the barrier, the asuras killing each other nearby noticed Gu Hais group. They all immediately abandoned their battles and charged at the four.
Oh? It looks like the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor was very hated, Gu Hai said.
The Divine Blood Demon Army? Quickly, eat them!
Ancestor Ming He instructed us to kill any of the Divine Blood Demon Army we run into! Kill!
Four initiate asuras? They are not even worth a strike. Kill them and get a reward from Ancestor Ming He!
The asuras roared furiously.
Humph! Gu Hai snorted coldly as he swung the saber in his hand.
A loud sound rang out, but the force seemed insufficient. The asura in front knocked the saber away.
Oh? There are grades among asuras? Gu Hais face sank, but he continued charging forward.
Before the Second Cycle, that asura immediately exploded. The moment it exploded, a stream of blue energy suddenly poured into Gu Hais body.
That blue light seemed to be great nourishment. It gave Gu Hai such a comfortable feeling that he trembled. His strength seemed to have increased.
Soul Energy? The souls in the Human Path Secret Realm were reduced to fragments and eventually consumed by the Six Paths Immortal. The Asura Path Secret Realm has evil people killing each other, plundering each others Soul Energy? The more one kills, the more one obtains, and the stronger one becomes? Gu Hai raised his eyebrows.??e??e???v?l.?o?
When an ordinary Heavenly Palace Realm cultivators three spiritual souls leave their body, the spiritual souls would be very weak. No wonder the Divine Blood Armys spiritual souls were even stronger than their Heavenly Palace Realm bodies. Their souls had been nourished to the point where they turned material? Excitement flashed in Gu Hais eyes.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Gu Qin, Meng Tai, and Gao Xianzhi each killed an asura. Those asuras bodies exploded, and the three absorbed the Soul Energy.
Your Majesty, I feel that Im growing stronger! Gao Xianzhi said excitedly.
Thats right. When the spiritual souls grow stronger, our bodies in Borderless Heavenly Capital will be able to absorb energy faster. Gu Hai smiled.
Great! the group said excitedly.
The ones we killed earlier should be asuras of the weakest grade. However, we will grow increasingly stronger, Gu Qin said excitedly.
Your Majesty, how many asuras are there in this Asura Secret Realm? Meng Tai asked in antic.i.p.ation.
We do not know. The Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty killed for six thousand years and did not kill even half of them. Furthermore, the asuras numbers increase every day since they are formed by the evil people of the world after they die, Gu Hai said.
This official is reluctant to leave, Gao Xianzhi said happily.
Are you confident of emptying the Asura Secret Realm? Gu Hai asked with a smile.
Huh? Everyones expression changed as they looked at Gu Hai.
Sixty years? It is too short. We have to be fast. The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor reached a standstill upon meeting Ming He. We want to lead the army to kill Ming He and slaughter the entire Asura Secret Realm! Gu Hai said ferociously.
Although the other three did not understand the significance of sixty years, Gu Hais ambition had infected everyone.
Kill! What harm was there in trying?
