Chapter 597 - Chapter 597 – Eyes of Reincarnation
Ninth Nether Buddha looked at Lady Zhaoxuan and said, “You are unable to pay for his sins. You are already dead and your karma with him is over. When he falls, you can reincarnate and will no longer be attached to him.”
A bell’s sound suddenly rang out, sounding throughout the entire Netherworld.
The rolling black clouds above opened up, and traces of golden light shined down.
Ren Niming stepped forwards and said, “Ninth Nether Buddha, since you’ve decided to act against us, can you at least tell us what is going on?”
Ninth Nether Buddha looked at him and said, “That Zhaoxuan you spoke of was a pawn that I sent so that Zhou Xuanji would know that Zhaoxuan was still alive. This way, I could also lure you out. With the way you do things, you would definitely use this opportunity to seek out Zhou Xuanji and bring him to the Netherworld.”
Ren Niming narrowed his eyes, his expression dark.
Everyone else looked up at the traces of golden light, and they felt a sense of danger.
Hearing that Zhou Xuanji had come because of her, Lady Zhaoxuan felt immensely guilty, and she sat paralyzed on the ground as if she had lost her soul.
Zhou Xuanji did not have time to comfort her. He looked up at Ninth Nether Buddha and asked, “Were you ordered to do this by destiny?”
He was very curious why Ninth Nether Buddha would target him.
“Destiny is just a concept; your existence has let me see what could happen in the future,” Ninth Nether Buddha replied calmly. He raised his left hand and prepared to attack.
The scene of the Netherworld around them suddenly changed, and it was replaced by a black void.
Ninth Nether Buddha knew that a big battle was about to unfold, so he released a barrier to separate them from the Netherworld to avoid the Netherworld from being damaged.
Ren Niming looked at Zhou Xuanji and said, “Looks like it was not as deep as we thought. Even if we can’t permanently kill him as long as the Netherworld exists, each time he dies, he will become weaker.”
A strange smile appeared on his face.
Ninth Nether Buddha narrowed his eyes. Under his gaze, Zhou Xuanji took out hundreds of swords and unleashed Sword Sect Immortal Ghost Weep, and he stepped into the sky.
Looking at Zhou Xuanji, Lady Zhaoxuan instinctively wanted to stop him. However, sensing Zhou Xuanji’s powerful aura, she could not manage to say anything.
“Is he already this powerful…”
Lady Zhaoxuan’s gaze became hazy as she sank into her thoughts.
How long had passed in the world of the living?
Ninth Nether Buddha asked, “Just who are you?”
He was unable to divine Zhou Xuanji’s roots.
There were not any records of him in the Netherworld either.
This boy seemed to have just appeared out of thin air, and he had become so powerful that all worlds shook before him in a matter of just a few hundred years.
Zhou Xuanji gave a slight smile before using the Primordial Chaos Sword Shadow.
Ten billion sword shadows appeared in the air, looking incredibly dense and filling up all space, their tips pointing towards Ninth Nether Buddha.
“This…” Lady Zhaoxuan’s eyes widened, a look of delight on her face.
It was the first time she had seen such a divine ability.
She suddenly realised why Ninth Nether Buddha would personally act.
Swish! Swish! Swish…
The ten billion sword shadows flew towards Ninth Nether Buddha simultaneously, shaking the air. They looked like an ocean of countless meteors, sweeping out.
“Amitabha!” Ninth Nether Buddha said as golden Buddhist runes appeared around him, quickly spinning, which formed a massive golden barrier that defended against the Primordial Chaos Sword Shadows.
Explosions sounded out, and brilliant light lit up the surrounding space.
Ninth Nether Buddha slightly frowned; he found that he had underestimated Zhou Xuanji.
What powerful magic energy!
And that sword!
His gaze locked onto the Thunderclap Sword. It was definitely a Heavenly Saint level treasure.
Could it be that there was a Heavenly Saint supporting Zhou Xuanji?
At that moment, Zhou Xuanji stood on a river of swords and shot at him.
Ninth Nether Buddha’s forehead suddenly split open as a red eye appeared. Countless ghosts flew out, and they howled as they flew at Zhou Xuanji.
Baleful aura filled the world!
Countless ghosts howled!
Zhou Xuanji’s expression did not change. Lightning surrounded his body, killing ghost after ghost, making him completely unstoppable.
He quickly came before Ninth Nether Buddha, and his gaze was cold as he used Sword Dao Rules.
Ninth Nether Buddha was directly blasted apart by Sword Dao Rules and the golden runes also disappeared.
A Nine Extreme sword combined with Sword Dao Rules; even an ordinary Heavenly Saint might not be able to take a direct hit, much less Ninth Nether Buddha, who was not even a true Heavenly Saint.
Seeing this scene, Lady Zhaoxuan, Xuan Daoya, and Si Mengyan looked dumbfounded.
In front of Zhou Xuanji, Ninth Nether Buddha could not block even a single sword strike?
Dense magic energy flowed into Zhou Xuanji’s body, causing his smile to become somewhat savage.
So what if Ninth Nether Buddha was the ruler of the Netherworld? He could not block a single attack from him.
Ren Niming smiled and muttered, “Not bad, looks like there is hope.”
What he cared most about was Zhou Xuanji’s speed of growth.
In another 100 years, how strong would Zhou Xuanji become?
At that moment, a cold wind blew out, and a body quickly formed.
Ninth Nether Buddha reappeared.
This time, his expression was incredibly unsightly.
He looked at Zhou Xuanji furiously and said in a low voice, “Just who is backing you?”
His body had been destroyed by someone with only Connecting Heaven Level 5 cultivation; even his incredibly solid mental state had a slight crack now.
“I’ll give you an opportunity to kneel and admit your wrongdoing, or else I’ll kill you again and again. Let’s see who can outlast the other,” Zhou Xuanji said calmly as he looked at Ninth Nether Buddha.
Since Ninth Nether Buddha wanted to kill him, he would not give him any face.
Ninth Nether Buddha was so angry that he laughed and said coldly, “You really think that you’re invincible?”
As he spoke, the space behind him twisted and became a vortex, and a pair of terrifying red eyes appeared. In front of them, Ninth Nether Buddha looked as small as an ant.
Qiu Hu and the others raised their heads, looking at the rapidly growing red eyes.
“What is that…” Si Mengyan muttered, his eyes filled with fear.
As soon as those eyes appeared, everyone’s hair stood on end.
Even Zhou Xuanji felt that kind of feeling.
“Those are the Eyes of Reincarnation. Be careful, if you’re devoured by them, you will be lost in the banished lands outside reincarnation; you will not be able to die and will not have any hope, and your will will be destroyed by despair and dullness.”
Ren Niming’s voice sounded out, causing Zhou Xuanji to become warier.
Ninth Nether Buddha looked at Zhou Xuanji and said in a cold voice, “I’ll give you a chance. If you surrender and allow me to cripple your magic energy, I will give you a chance at life. When you have paid for your sins, I will give you hope of reincarnation.”
Hearing this, Zhou Xuanji laughed. Before, Ninth Nether Buddha was talking about killing him, and now he was offering him a chance at life.
Zhou Xuanji activated the Battle Path Flame Soul, and his aura rose as he once again slashed out.
Sword Dao Rules!
Sword light flashed out and Ninth Nether Buddha’s expression fell. He was once again killed. The sword qi continued on to slam into the Eyes of Reincarnation, but they were absorbed by them.
“Retreat for now!” Ren Niming shouted. The Eyes of Reincarnation were simply too dangerous, and they had to get away from it.
Zhou Xuanji did not act rashly and quickly returned to Lady Zhaoxuan’s side and brought her away.
They ripped open a crack in space and quickly left.
Right after they left, Ninth Nether Buddha reformed his body.
His expression was dark to the extreme, and it was extremely difficult for him to suppress his anger.
The Eyes of Reincarnation behind him disappeared and fused with the darkness.
