Book 6: Chapter 085: Imminent Death
Oh? The peac.o.c.ks felt slightly startled.
Phew! The Metal Buddha inwardly released his bated breath.
He had worried that Gu Hai would kick him while he was down.
The Metal Buddha did not worry about the peac.o.c.k race attacking him. However, he could not bear the resentment they felt. As he looked at Gu Hai, he unconsciously felt some grat.i.tude.
Your Reverence, this subject would like to give the old prime a send-off first! Kong Xuan requested earnestly.
Gu Hai nodded.
The group flew to the Peac.o.c.k Deity Halls entrance.
When the peac.o.c.ks collecting the bodies saw Kong Xuan fly over, they saluted respectfully.
After what they had just experienced, all the peac.o.c.ks on Peac.o.c.k Deity Island acknowledged Kong Xuan. If not for him, it would have been over for the peac.o.c.k race.
The five severely injured elders made some arrangements, then followed Kong Xuan back to the Peac.o.c.k Deity Hall.
The old primes eyes remained open.
Prime! The elders again wept as they bowed.
Although the elders acknowledged Kong Xuan, no one could erase the old primes prestige.
Amitbha! the Metal Buddha suddenly said.
After that, the Metal Buddha sat down cross-legged and started chanting the scriptures.
The Sending Scripture? The Metal Buddha is granting the old prime release! The peac.o.c.ks looked at the Metal Buddha in grat.i.tude.
Kong Xuan approached and gently touched the old primes eyelids, closing the old primes eyes.
The peac.o.c.k race has me now. You can rest in peace! Kong Xuan said gravely.
As the Metal Buddha chanted, golden light poured towards the old primes body from his mouth. Then, a translucent blue figure slowly emerged from the old primes corpse.
Mortal soul? Gu Hai frowned slightly.
After one died, the mortal soul remained in the corpse or the grave.
Now, the old primes mortal soul appeared.
Prime! Countless peac.o.c.ks immediately knelt in excitement.
The old prime looked at Kong Xuan with grat.i.tude in his eyes. Then, he bowed gravely to Kong Xuan.
You cant! Kong Xuan frowned.
You are worthy of this bow. This old man let the Supreme Singularity go in the past. Unexpectedly, the Supreme Singularity would return to destroy my peac.o.c.k race. If not for you, my peac.o.c.k race would have Fortunately, you were around! The old prime bowed sincerely in grat.i.tude.
Kong Xuan frowned. Then, he sighed softly as he eventually nodded.
All peac.o.c.ks, listen up. From today on, Kong Xuan is the prime. You have to listen to his commands. Do not go against him! The peac.o.c.k races calamity has only just begun. You should not have any thoughts of leaving or overthrowing him! the old prime instructed.
Yes! the many peac.o.c.ks answered.
Who would think of leaving or betrayal now? All of them acknowledged Kong Xuan to the fullest.
Old prime, I have something Ive been wanting to ask. I wonder, Kong Xuan suddenly said while frowning.
Speak! The old primes mortal soul looked at Kong Xuan.
I heard that a super peac.o.c.k deity appears in the peac.o.c.k race every ten thousand years. The super peac.o.c.k deity is apparently very powerful and can even tear open the cycle of reincarnation? Kong Xuan said doubtfully.
The old prime looked at Kong Xuan and nodded. This is true. However, I believe that with your strength, you should be able to reach the level of a supreme peac.o.c.k deity just by studying the peac.o.c.k deity.
Oh? Studying the peac.o.c.k deity? However, we do not have much time. The Six Paths Veritable Lord is about to kill Heaven. Is there any faster way? Kong Xuan asked worriedly.
At the side, the Metal Buddha gaped. Kong Xuan? Dont talk nonsense. How could the Six Paths Veritable Lord kill Heaven?
Monk, you still dont believe me? Gu Hai frowned.
It is arrant nonsense! The Metal Buddha glared.
Metal Buddha, I believe it, the old primes mortal soul sighed.
Ah! What? How could you believe it? Who is the Six Paths Veritable Lord? How could he do something so disgraceful? The Metal Buddha still refused to believe.
Previously, I spent some of my lifespan to send the peac.o.c.k deity to meet f.u.xi. f.u.xi verified that my peac.o.c.k race would suffer this calamity today. He also said that the world would suffer from a great calamity, the old primes mortal soul sighed.
Thats impossible! How can it be possible?! The Metal Buddha finally wavered.
The Metal Buddha revered the Six Paths Veritable Lord. However, he revered the peac.o.c.k races old prime even more, as the Peac.o.c.k Prime had once saved the Metal Temple. The Metal Buddha refused to take Gu Hais word for it, but seeing the old prime so certain, he felt fl.u.s.tered and panicked.
Old prime, time is limited. Do you know how to turn into the super peac.o.c.k deity? Kong Xuan frowned.
The old prime shook his head. Every peac.o.c.k has different comprehensions. My experience is useless to you; it might even mislead you. However, I have sealed some energy in the peac.o.c.k deity. You should have noticed it already. That energy can help you rip open one path of reincarnation.
Oh? Kong Xuans expression changed.
As for which one it is, you decide for yourself, the old prime sighed.?r?e?????v?l.???
Old prime, may I ask if you have picked a burial site? Gu Hai asked.
Oh? Are you the Han Imperial Emperor whom Kong Xuan spoke of? Many thanks for earlier! The old prime suddenly bowed to Gu Hai.
Old prime, theres no need for this! Gu Hai immediately helped up the old prime.
You asked about my burial site. What are you planning? the old prime asked, bewildered.
Although Kong Xuan has saved the peac.o.c.k race for now, the peac.o.c.k races calamity might not be over yet. Its survival might even anger the Six Paths Veritable Lord. I have a plan to save the peac.o.c.k race. We move all your people into my immortal firmament! Gu Hai said seriously.
Oh? The pupils of the old primes mortal soul suddenly constricted.
The Metal Buddhas expression changed. This means Gu Hai did not use his full strength previously when fighting with me? Otherwise, he could have pulled me into his immortal firmament, and I would have
However, the old prime remained silent.
After all, the Six Paths Veritable Lord wanted to kill Gu Hai. What if Gu Hai died?
Gu Hai did not rush but waited patiently. After a while, the old prime nodded. Alright!
Dont worry. I will do my best to protect them. If I end up falling to the Six Paths Veritable Lord, I will release them back into the Divine Continent before I die, Gu Hai said seriously.
Many thanks, Imperial Emperor Gu! The old prime bowed gratefully.
In that case, I will pick a bountiful land in my immortal firmament for your burial site! Gu Hai said seriously.
Thank you for the effort! The old primes mortal soul nodded.
Perhaps the manifestation weakened the old primes mortal soul, but the mortal soul immediately vanished after that.
Quickly summon as many peac.o.c.ks as you can. After tomorrow, Gu Hai said.
Kong Xuans pupils constricted. Tomorrow is the tenth day?
Gu Hai took a deep breath and nodded. Then, he walked out of the Peac.o.c.k Deity Hall and looked at the sky.
Kong Xuan followed Gu Hai out. The Metal Buddha remained in the hall, chanting the scriptures.
We have already sensed two of the Six Paths Veritable Lord clones. Hah! The Six Paths Veritable Lord will locate us tomorrow! Gu Hai smiled bitterly.
Your Reverence, dont you have an immortal firmament? Cant you hide in there and wait for the right time? Kong Xuan asked worriedly.
The Six Paths Veritable Lord also has an immortal firmament. Have you forgotten? I cant hide from him. He can sense the location of the immortal firmament and might even rip it apart, Gu Hai said.
Then, Kong Xuan said worriedly.
If we have to fight, so be it. This is the world from eight hundred thousand years before. The Go Dao laws still exist! A murderous intent flashed on Gu Hais face.
Yes! Kong Xuan answered.
Although the world is vast, the Six Paths Veritable Lord definitely can travel anywhere in an instant, given his strength. We need to end the battle quickly and kill one clone before the others arrive, Gu Hai said with a sullen expression.
The Six Paths Veritable Lord should be a Go Dao expert too. Otherwise, he could not face Old Mister Guan Qi in Go. Kong Xuan frowned.
I heard earlier that you could rip open a path of reincarnation? Gu Hai looked at Kong Xuan.
Yes. Which path of reincarnation does Your Reverence need to enter?
We will return to the eighteen layers of h.e.l.l and wait for the Six Paths Veritable Lord there! Gu Hai said.
Yes! This subject will immediately enter closed-door cultivation to figure out how to rip open the path of reincarnation! Kong Xuan answered thoughtfully.
Gu Hai nodded.
The time in the eighteen layers of h.e.l.l did not match the Divine Continents time. Only by taking action there could he prevent the other Six Paths Veritable Lord clones from interfering.
After Kong Xuan issued some commands to the peac.o.c.k race, he entered closed-door cultivation.
Then, Gu Hai worked on sensing the two Six Paths Veritable Lord clones.
Suddenly, a strong wind blew, reaching Gu Hai in the blink of an eye.
Who is it?! The peac.o.c.ks immediately raised their guard.
Its fine! Go about your business! Gu Hai said, waving his hand.
The surrounding peac.o.c.ks looked at Gu Hai, then nodded and left.
Sect Master Heavenly Access, to think that you found me? Some surprise flashed in Gu Hais eyes.
The new arrival was naturally the Severed Sects Heavenly Access.
Previously, I used a Severed Sects secret technique on you. That made it easy for me to find you. The Six Paths Veritable Lord will come for you tomorrow. I worry that you cant deal with him alone if I do not help you. Sect Master Heavenly Access smiled.
Many thanks, Sect Master Heavenly Access! Gu Hai said in grat.i.tude.
I visited the Myriad Age Daoist Sect and the Spirit Mountain Sect over the past few days, Sect Master Heavenly Access said.
The Spirit Mountain Sect and the Myriad Age Daoist Sect chose to submit to the Six Paths Veritable Lord, Sect Master Heavenly Access said.
They defected? Gu Hais face sank.
Solar Divine Palace:
The Supreme Singularity returned in a sorry state. A colossal bell hung above a ma.s.sive barrier. That was the Primal Chaos Bell.
The Supreme Singularity waved his hand, and the Primal Chaos Bell rang. All the animal spirits in the surroundings quickly gathered.
Master, why are you back alone? Wheres the Supreme Genesis? some animal spirits asked in shock.
However, the Supreme Singularity showed a ferocious expression. Kong Xuan? Kong Xuan? Where did this Kong Xuan come from? I must kill you!
The Supreme Singularity ignored his subordinates. He grabbed the Primal Chaos Bell, intending to return to the Peac.o.c.k Sea.
Kong Xuan? Master, is it this Kong Xuan? One of the Supreme Singularitys subordinates immediately handed over a portrait.
Huh? The Supreme Singularitys pupils constricted as he asked in shock, Why do you have Kong Xuans portrait?
It is not just Kong Xuan. There are these too. The Six Paths Veritable Lord put a bounty on them. They are all the Six Paths Veritable Lords enemies! The Supreme Singularitys subordinates immediately took out various portraits.
Oh? The Supreme Singularitys expression changed as he recognized Gu Hai from among the portraits.
The subordinates explained the bounty.
The Six Paths Veritable Lord? This is great! Hahahaha! Kong Xuan? Gu Hai? You are dead now! I will contact the Six Paths Veritable Lord and send you all to death! Hah! the Supreme Singularity roared ferociously.
