Chapter 37 – The Great Wisdom King

Carefree Valley…

Having escaped the dire predicament, the crowd of cultivators felt tremendously grateful to Buddha Lian Sheng. Buddha Lian Sheng was also very kind as he responded to everyone’s gratitude amicably in a short and straightforward manner.

“Thank you, Throne Master Gu!” Having thanked Buddha Lian Sheng, everyone also paid their gratitude to Gu Hai continuously as well.

But Gu Hai, on the other hand, said with a smile, “We can be considered as comrades who have suffered joys and sorrows together. Ladies and gentlemen, This Lowly One has a matter, I wonder if ladies and gentlemen can please do me a small favor!”

“Thrown Master Gu, please do tell, if I can do it, I will do it for sure!”

“Had it not for Throne Master Gu and Buddha Lian Sheng, we would have been finished here!”

“Throne Master Gu, there is no need to be so polite, please tell, what’s the matter, I will definitely do it!”…

The crowd of cultivators immediately thumped their chests politely as they guaranteed their words.

“As my humble self said before, this lowly one entered the Xiantian Endgame world this time to look for a man named ‘Wei Shengren’. Ladies and gentlemen, if you are going to stay in this world, please keep a look out for him, please be sure to let him know that I will be waiting for him at the exit, during the last month before the entrance of this world closes down. If he doesn’t want to come, please let me know about it in the last month!” Gu Hai stated in an incredibly earnest tone.

Everyone was taken by surprise for a moment; they had never expected Gu Hai’s request to be so simple.

“Throne Master Gu, please don’t worry, I will return and contact my clan to mobilize all my senior and junior brothers to help Throne Master Gu look out for him!”

“Throne Master Gu, please don’t worry, I will immediately go meet with my teacher, we will definitely keep a look out for you!”…

One after another,  the crowd of cultivators guaranteed their help.

“Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen!” Gu Hai thanked them, smiling broadly.

In this way, many more people were searching for Wei Shengren.

After having a small talk, everyone left in succession. Although the crisis had been lifted, this place still unsettled everyone’s minds, they were worried that Ninth Young Master would return.

Everyone bid farewell to Gu Hai and Buddha Lian Sheng before taking their leave.

“Greetings, Throne Master Meng!” Gu Hai greeted Meng Tai with a smile on his lips.

Meng Tai’s eyes flickered with complex emotions as he looked back at Gu Hai.

“Throne Master Gu, your weiqi skills are incredible!” stated Throne Master Meng, furrowing his brow.

“Luck was on my side! Throne Master Meng, it seems you have suffered serious injuries, how about you travel together with us?” asked Gu Hai as a smile crept upon his lips.

“There is really no need, we both are looking for ‘Wei Shengren’, its best for us to go separate ways, this way we can cover more ground and it will give us better opportunity to find him! Throne Master Gu, goodbye!” Meng Tai refused as he shook his head.

“Very well!” nodded Gu Hai.

Watching the congregation of Ascendant Hall disciples leave, Gu Hai squinted after them.

“Throne Master, earlier, Song Qingshu might have been together with them…!” suggested Gao Xianzhi, knitting his brow.

“I know!” Gu Hai said in a solemn tone as he shook his head.

“Yes!” nodded Gu Hai.

A vacant look immediately appeared on Chen Tianshan’s face. What do they mean by Song Qingshu was with them?

Everyone left one by one, leaving Gu Hai’s party and Buddha Lian Sheng behind.

“Buddha Lian Sheng, thank you very much for taking action this time!” Gu Hai thanked Buddha Lian Sheng gratefully.

Buddha Lian Sheng looked at Gu Hai and said with a smile, “Throne Master Gu, earlier, when I acted, I seemed to see you taking something out of the space in your token. If I had to guess, perhaps even without my help, you still had some way to deal with the cloud beast attack, am I right?”

A wry smile appeared on Gu Hai’s lips as he explained, “Buddha Lian Sheng, you must be jesting, how could I have a way? I just had something which could create a small explosion, I was just preparing to throw it at Ninth Young Master’s position, but as for whether it would have been effective, I am not sure. In the past, I had used it on my Ascendant Hall’s traitor, Song Qingshu, but it didn’t stop him at all, let alone, Ninth Young Master who had that cloud beast, he would have been able to easily evade even more easily!”

Buddha Lian Sheng also didn’t continue with this topic and took a long, deep breath before speaking, “Throne Master Gu, are you remaining here because you are still concerned about spirit pool?”

“Buddha Lian Sheng, I have made a fool of myself yet again, this lowly one is just curious!” Gu Hai didn’t refute.

“It will do no harm even if I tell you. According to my previous probing, there is a magical item left by Elder Guanqi at the bottom of the pool. If you are interested, you can give it a try.  With your weiqi skills, you should be able to acquire it!” explained Buddha Lian Sheng, laughing.

“Oh? Weiqi skills?” A sliver of a curious look appeared on Gu Hai’s face.

“Do you still remember the golden weiqi piece in Ninth Young Master’s hands?” Buddha Lian Sheng asked in a calm manner.

“Oh?” Gu Hai’s eyes immediately became focused.

After all, Ninth Young Master was able to mobilize the forces of heaven and earth to congeal a cloud hydra with just a weiqi piece.

“Generally speaking, the golden pieces will appear everywhere after this world had opened for three months, waiting for predestined friends. And there is one such array at the bottom of the spirit pool; a golden piece will appear after three months. However, I have disrupted the array already, you can take it now if you want! The golden piece can only be used in this world. Once this world is closed, it will be ineffective!” explained Buddha Lian Sheng.

“The golden piece with which Ninth Young Master summoned the hydra?” Chen Tianshan’s eyes immediately lit up.

Little Rou’s interest was also piqued extremely.

Gu Hai, on the other hand, was confused, “Buddha Lian Sheng, this lowly one is a bit confused. If the golden pieces will appear three months after the opening of this world, waiting for predestined friends, then wouldn’t they give more power and opportunity to outsiders? Furthermore, I also heard Meng Tai say that Elder Guanqi seemed to have instructed Weiqi Empyrean Court disciples to not target outsiders, no matter what how the outsiders toss this world around? Why…why did Elder Guanqi do that?”

“A good question! Elder Guanqi’s intent was indeed to leave the countless Weiqi Empyrean Court treasures for outsiders to take, and they were arranged by Elder Guanqi’s himself as well!” explained Buddha Lian Sheng.

“Oh? This lowly one still doesn’t understand!” Gu Hai was still a bit confused.

“When Elder Guanqi lost and fell, he still had one big game laid out at the end!. As for its effect, no one knows for sure. Perhaps it may just be a part of Elder Guanqi’s layout. Anyway, you don’t need to why; someday, the water will subside and the rocks will emerge eventually!” Buddha Lian Sheng said, shaking his head.

Gu Hai knit his brow slightly, but at the end, he nodded.

“Let’s go, I will take you for a look!” Buddha Lian Sheng said cheerfully.

At the exit of Xiantian Endgame World, three white-robed men were running hastily.

“That Old Devil, Gu Hai, killed Martial Uncle Song Qingshu, he must know that we are Song Jia Sect disciples, he will hunt us down for sure!”

“Let’s…let’s return quickly and report it to Sect Chief, Devil Gu had blasted my Song Jia Sect forty disciples to death! He is a devil!”

“Senior brothers, junior brothers, all of you have died at the hands of Devil Gu, we will return and inform Sect Chief. Devil Gu’s entire family will be exterminated!”

Three Song Jia Sect disciples escaped towards the exit with hatred. Earlier, they had met with Song Qingshui and knew about the causes and effects. Even if Gu Hai had saved them, the three still hated Gu Hai extremely. After everything was over, they left quietly.

As the three were rushing towards the exit…

“Stop!”

Suddenly, a cold shout stopped the three immediately.

There was a black-robed man standing in front of the three, blocking them. The black-robed man’s body was completely covered in black, but on his chest there was a golden sun pattern. Dressed in his dark robe with a golden sun, he appeared incomparably mysterious.

“Who are you? Why are you blocking us?” a Song Jia Sect disciple asked, a cold look appearing on his face.

“The exit has been taken over by us already, from now on till this world is closed, the cultivators can only come in, they are not allowed to go out!” the black-robed man said coldly.

“You?” the Song Jia Sect disciple questioned vacantly.

As they turned their heads to look, there were indeed a few black-robed men with sun patterns on their chests far away, seemingly going to block the huge misty entrance.

“Senior brother, don’t listen to his nonsense, they are still far away, we can still rush out!” a Song Jia Sect disciple said coldly.

“Alright!”

The three agreed before they ran towards the misty exit immediately, paying no heed to the black-robed man.

“Humph!” the black-robed man harrumphed coldly.

BANG!

The head of leading Song Jia Sect disciple suddenly burst open.

AHHHH!…

The other two let out screams in fear.

They never saw the black-robed men taking any kind of action, it seemed as if he simply didn’t act and their junior brother’s head exploded with just a cold harrumph!?

“Get the f**k back!”

“You, you, you, we are Song Jia Sect disciples, our Sect Chief will not let you off for sure!” another Song Jia Sect disciple shouted in trepidation.

“Humph!”

BANG!

Yet again, a Song Jia Sect disciple’s head exploded.

There was not the slightest bit of sign, yet the head exploded so suddenly. The last remaining person suddenly fell back on the ground in fear and continued to retreat thereafter.

“Devil, devil!” That man retreated in fear, he was so afraid that the hairs on his body were standing up.

However, the black-robed man didn’t give chase. It seemed that as long as no one went out, he didn’t care.

The final Song Jia Sect disciple retreated in fear and watched from afar. There were a total of twenty black-robed men with sun patterns on their chest, guarding the misty zone from all directions. Cultivators were only allowed to come in, but not allowed to go out!?

They are simply too terrifying and too powerful. Just a cold snort and the opposite party’s head would explode?

Isn’t this the Xiantian Endgame World? Aren’t the cultivators’ cultivation suppressed to the Xiantian Stage? How did he do it?

That Song Jia Sect disciple escaped in panic, but as he once again turned his head to look, he unexpectedly saw that black-robed man with the sun pattern on his chest going down on one knee.

All twenty black-robed men were down on one knee.

“Who is it? Who can make these group of devils bow?” wondered that Song Jia Sect disciple in shock as he stared with opened wide eyes.

SWISH!

Gradually, a team of silhouettes walked out of the mist.

There were approximately a thousand or so people, all of them wearing black robes with sun patterns on their chest. In the rear, thirty people carrying a ten zhang-long coffin entered slowly.

A thousand or so? A thousand or so devils?

The thousand or so black-robed men who had entered were lead by a man holding a five-colored specter. The leader raised his head to look at the sky.

The thousand or so black-robed men with the sun patterns on their chest behind him knelt on one knee together towards the man holding the specter. Only the people who were carrying the coffin stood.

“His Majesty is about to come out, do you know our purpose for coming here?” the man dressed in a sun-patterned black robe and wielding the scepter asked in a calm voice.

“Great Wisdom King, we are at your service!” a thousand or so men dressed in sun-patterned black robes answered respectfully.

“Find the whereabouts of ‘Empress Wa’. Even if you have to tear the whole Weiqi Empyrean Court down, I don’t care, I just want you to find her whereabouts for me; otherwise, you are all dead!” ordered Great Wisdom King coldly.

“Yes, Your Excellency, we will fight tooth and nail to achieve it!” the congregation of black-robed men obeyed respectfully.

“Fight tooth and nail? Oh, it seems you still can’t understand, His Majesty is about to come out, and if he doesn’t find Empress Wa, no one can save you. Even if it’s me, I won’t be able to save you, I simply don’t have the qualification! Only if it’s Empress Wa!” stated the Great Wisdom King coldly.

“Yes!” the congregation of black-robed men answered solemnly.

The Great Wisdom King nodded before he turned his head to look at the Song Jia Sect disciple far away.

Although the Great Wisdom King was wearing a hat which had covered his face, that Song Jia Sect disciple could still feel a pair of eyes watching him. He felt as if he was an ant who was being watched by heaven itself. At that moment, Song Jia Sect disciple seemed to have been transfixed, he didn’t dare to move. His entire body was drenched in a cold sweat as an inexplicable fear gripped his heart.
