Chapter 553 - Chapter 553 – Promoting the Way of the Sword


In response to Old Ancestor Hongshi’s question, Zhou Xuanji directly answered, “I don’t.”

If he went to provoke a Heavenly Saint right now, he would be undoubtedly seeking death.

Old Ancestor Hongshi narrowed his eyes and smiled as he said, “Heavenly Lord Xuantie has sworn to destroy the Wanshen Great Thousand. I fought him to a draw, but he won’t let things go like this.”

Zhou Xuanji looked at him and asked, “What exactly do you want? Just say it.”

Old Ancestor Hongshi did not show any hostile intent, and he instead had a look of appreciation in his eyes; he could roughly guess at his intentions.

“Become my chess piece; I will help you search for Heavenly Law Violet Qi and support you to become a Saint. How about that?” Old Ancestor Hongshi said as he chuckled. He directly revealed his goal.

Zhou Xuanji asked, “If I become your chess piece, I have to act against Heavenly Lord Xuantie?”

Old Ancestor Hongshi glared at him and said grumpily, “Are you that scared?”

Zhou Xuanji sighed.

It was not good to be too outstanding; wherever he went, there were people who wanted to snatch him.

He narrowed his eyes and asked, “Do you have any methods for me to quickly reach Universe Heaven Level 18?”

Old Ancestor Hongshi said in annoyance, “Don’t try to take shortcuts. I’m giving you a task to unify the Wanshen Great Thousand and wield the Wanshen Great Thousand’s Fate!”

Zhou Xuanji asked, “Why?”

Even though he was quite powerful, he did not have the desire to control the Wanshen Great Thousand for now.

Emperor Sword Court was still developing, and he did not want to take steps that were too big.

Old Ancestor Hongshi said with profound intent, “Fate is the only thing that Heavenly Saints fight over. Now that Sage Daojing has left, the other Heavenly Saints will definitely try to snatch Fate. As Heavenly Saints, we cannot personally act.”

Could not personally act?

Then what was Heavenly Lord Xuantie doing?

Old Ancestor Hongshi did not explain, and he continued, “When you rule over the Wanshen Great Thousand, I will pass on to you a divine ability and supreme treasure, making you invincible below Heavenly Saints.”

After saying this, Old Ancestor Hongshi hurriedly left.

Zhou Xuanji shook his head and laughed; just who was this fellow?

He gave him a task but did not even leave his name, and he did not give a time limit for the task.

He did not bother thinking too much about it and continued onwards towards the Wanshen Great Thousand.

In the boundless starry sky, eight figures traveled side by side. Among them were Old Ancestor Hongshi and Heavenly Lord Xuantie.

The eight Heavenly Saints!

Their expressions were serious as they looked to the depths of the universe.

“Did you all sense it?” Heavenly Lord Xuantie said in a low voice, feeling quite unsettled.

The seven other Heavenly Saints all nodded.

They all sensed an extremely dangerous aura at the end of the universe.

They did not dare to get close and could only look at it from afar.

“Could it be that there are really other existences beyond the Heavenly Law?”

“Didn’t Sage Daojing go to find a path that exceeds Saints? Could that aura be him?”

“No, it’s impossible. Even if Sage Daojing obtained a fortuitous opportunity, he would not go through such a massive change.”

“Are there any abnormal signs above the 36th heaven?”

“What should we do? Should we take a look?”

The Heavenly Saints talked among themselves. Some people wanted to investigate, while others did not want to take the risk.

The mysterious and unknown existence made the Heavenly Saints not know what to do.

In the end, they did not have the courage to step out. The reason why the Heavenly Saints were undying and unkillable was because they were attached to the Heavenly Law.

If they left the range of the Heavenly Law’s control, they would be at risk of dying.

On the other side, Zhou Xuanji had already returned to the Wanshen Great Thousand.

The current Wanshen Great Thousand looked incredibly still and silent. There were no traces of battles, and the various factions were still recovering.

The powerful beings seemed to have hidden themselves. Even if Zhou Xuanji wanted to become stronger, he could not find them.

After traveling around the Wanshen Great Thousand for a few months, he returned to the Divine Cliff.

He first went to find Yang Yutian.

After ten or so years, Yang Yutian looked like he had aged much. Seeing Zhou Xuanji return, he became very excited.

He grabbed Zhou Xuanji’s wrist and asked, “Brother Zhou, recently, there’s news that the Wanshen Great Thousand affected a Heavenly Saint and is about to be destroyed. Is this news true?”

Everyone in the Divine Cliff was terrified, and this was the same for the creatures in the rest of the world.

Facing a Heavenly Saint, no matter how powerful one’s cultivation was, it was useless.

In just these short ten years, many powerful beings had left the Wanshen Great Thousand to seek out other places.

The Divine Cliff was not strong enough, and even if they wanted to relocate, it would not be possible.

They would only be able to go down to a mortal realm.

However, if the Wanshen Great Thousand was destroyed, all connected mortal realms would not be able to escape either.

Zhou Xuanji replied calmly, “Don’t worry. In the future, I will protect the Wanshen Great Thousand.”

He told Yang Yutian his plan. From now on, he would promote his Way of the Sword in the Wanshen Great Thousand and make Emperor Sword Court stronger until he could reign over the Wanshen Great Thousand. When that time came, the Divine Cliff would also rise to heaven.

After hearing this, Yang Yutian initially felt a bit sad, but after thinking about it, he became excited.

Zhou Xuanji not unifying the world in the name of the Divine Cliff was actually a good thing. Otherwise, with the difference in strength between him and Zhou Xuanji, he would have to give over the position of Cliff Master.

If the Divine Cliff attached itself to Emperor Sword Court, not only could it become more powerful, but he would also still be able to be the Cliff Master.

“I can be at ease then. If you need anything from me or the Divine Cliff, don’t hesitate to ask,” Yang Yutian said as he smiled, becoming much more spirited.

After he had become the Cliff Master, he felt that every time the Divine Cliff was going to rise up, something would immediately happen and deal him a blow.

This feeling of rising to the heavens then plummeting into an abyss was very uncomfortable.

The two of them chatted for a bit, after which Zhou Xuanji left.

Zhou Xuanji returned to his own residence, and he found that only Xiao Chan was there.

Xiao Chan told him that Bai Suwan had been taken away by the Nine Heaven Divine Snake Clan, and they also recommended for Zhou Xuanji to quickly leave the Wanshen Great Thousand.

“Is this Great Thousand World really doomed?” Xiao Chan asked nervously. Everyone in the world was in danger, and she was not an exception.

Zhou Xuanji waved his hand and said, “Don’t worry, I’m here. Pack your things and prepare to leave with me.”

Xiao Chan stared in surprise and hurriedly began to pack her things.

Zhou Xuanji took out the 24 Rank Deep Black Lotus, and he had Daoya Old Man and Jiang Xue gather all of the Emperor Sword Court’s disciples.

That afternoon, he brought Xiao Chan to a barren plains. He held the 24 Rank Deep Black Lotus in his right hand and he waved his left hand, causing the one million Emperor Sword Court disciples to appear, covering the surroundings.

Zhou Xuanji flew into the air and looked down at the Emperor Sword Court disciples as he said, “The Wanshen Great Thousand is in unrest, and the time is right for Emperor Sword Court to come out. From today onwards, we will walk the world and promote the Way of the Sword!”

Nearly 600 swords appeared around his body, spinning around him and creating a majestic scene.

“Do you all remember the Emperor Sword Court’s motto?” Zhou Xuanji shouted, and the million disciples’ blood began to boil.

“Using the sword to support the world, using the sword to save the people!” the million disciples shouted in unison, shaking the clouds and causing Xiao Chan’s eyes to widen.

Even the Divine Cliff, which was not too far away, could hear them.

It was the first time most of Emperor Sword Court’s disciples had come to the Upper Realm. They all felt incredibly excited, so they naturally shouted with all of their might.

“Follow me and begin to train with your swords!” Zhou Xuanji turned and slowly flew towards the horizon.

Xiao Jinghong, Zhao Congjian, Zhou Xiaoxuan, Chen Bantian, Lin Changge, and the others all flew into the air, practicing with their swords as they followed Zhou Xuanji.

Ever since the battle between Heavenly Saints had begun, Chen Bantian, Lin Changge, and the others who had gone out all returned to the Northern Wilderness, no longer daring to act as they wished.

Now, the entire Emperor Sword Court was gathered together and traveled together!
