I Have Countless Legendary Swords!
Chapter 714 - Heavenly Sage Dawude
Zhou Xuanji and Nangong Jiayin didn’t make a single noise. They kept staring at the dried corpse vigilantly. They were ready to take action at any moment.
However, the corpse remained motionless. It kept calmly staring at Zhou Xuanji. Its white eyes were scary enough to give anyone the jitters.
With a flash of thought in Zhou Xuanji’s mind, the Great Li Avatar suddenly appeared behind the dried corpse and hugged the corpse with both hands.
The dried corpse didn’t struggle. It still stood upright in the sarcophagus.
“Phew, scared me to death. It has no Dao Energy in its body. It should be absolutely dead,” Nangong Jiayin wiped the cold sweat off her forehead and sighed.
She had been trembling ever since she had taken part in this mission. She regretted ever taking this mission.
I should blame myself for being too greedy.
And then there are those mysterious people. God knows scheming what.
The more she thought about it, the more depressed she felt. She pouted her lips, acting like a little girl.
Zhou Xuanji didn’t pay attention to her. He walked to the Sarcophagus and found that there was a dark hole where the mummy laid before. There was a wooden sword inside. It was twenty centimeters wide and there was a small groove on the blade near the hilt.
He immediately took out the wooden sign that the Great Li Avatar had just fumbled and inserted it into the wooden sword.
The wooden sword started violently vibrating before radiating a fiery light.
In an instant, the mummy suddenly transformed into a plume of blue smoke before it plunged into the wooden sword.
Immediately after, a soul formed from the fiery light. It was a kind-looking old man. He looked slightly fat and his squinted eyes left two curves as he looked smilingly at Zhou Xuanji.
“Who are you?” asked Zhou Xuanji. He looked extremely calm; not the slightest bit of panic could be found on his face.
The other party was just a soul; there wasn’t any need to be afraid.
“How did you get here?” the old man rather asked back with a smile. He didn’t answer Zhou Xuanji’s question directly.
Zhou Xuanji narrated his previous experience. Now, the old man was their only hope of escaping this place. He had no choice but to narrate what happened.
After Zhou Xuanji finished speaking, the old man stated, smiling, “So it’s like this. Then you are dead.”
Zhou Xuanji furrowed his brow. He directly pulled the wooden sign out of the wooden sword.
“Ah! What are you doing…” the old man suddenly cried in shock. But his soul disappeared before the old man could finish speaking.
Afterward, Zhou Xuanji put the wooden sign back in as the old man’s soul reappeared.
He shouted in anger, “Kid! I am Heavenly Sage Dawude. How dare you so rude to me?”
Heavenly Sage Dawude!?
What a bad name!?
[TLN: 大无德, Dawude, the great one with no benevolence.]
A strange look appeared on Zhou Xuanji’s face. He had something to say but didn’t know whether he should say it or not.
[TLN: I think he is talking about verse from Tao Te Ching, high virtue is not virtuous, therefore it has virtue, low virtue never loses virtue, therefore it has no virtue, high virtue takes no contrived action, and acts without agenda, low virtue takes contrived action, and acts with agenda. I could be wrong too.]
“Do you want to escape from here?” Heavenly Sage Dawude asked solemnly with shining eyes.
Zhou Xuanji nodded, waiting for him to continue.
He hoped that the other party wasn’t like the Barbaric Ultimate God, asking him to tell jokes.
“As long as you eat the Sovereign Divine Fetuses, you can escape,” Heavenly Sage Dawude earnestly proposed.
Zhou Xuanji and Nangong Jiayin felt nauseuated when they heard this.
Even though they hated the Sovereign Divine Fetuses, they didn’t want to eat those guys.
Just the mere thought of it gave them goosebumps.
“Is there any other way?” Zhou Xuanji immediately asked. He felt that Heavenly Sage Dawude was teasing them.
Heavenly Sage Dawude answered, smiling, “But of course. However, the other method requires at least sixteen-star aptitude. Are you even worthy of it?”
He looked arrogant. His eyes were filled with a little contempt.
Nangong Jiayin said, “He has eighteen-star aptitude.”
Heavenly Sage Dawude was stunned. He immediately asked, “Are you really that good?”
He carefully sized up Zhou Xuanji. Sadly, he discovered that he had no physical body and his soul was gradually weakening. He couldn’t understand Zhou Xuanji’s aptitude at all.
“I have this aptitude. Then what!?” Zhou Xuanji asked calmly, without a bit of arrogance or haste. His calm temperament made Heavenly Sage look at him in a different light.
Heavenly Sage Dawude said, smiling, “Take me as your master. I will teach you a peerless divine ability that will let you merge with this independent plane. Then, you will be able to get out.”
When Zhou Xuanji heard this, he was immediately excited. He asked, “What diving ability!?”
He would naturally not refuse a chance to become stronger.
“Hold your horses. First become my apprentice. And you’ll have to help me overthrow the Origin Court and return to my soul in the future,” Heavenly Sage Dawude’s eyes glittered as he stated this. He sounded a little excited.
He had been suppressed here for countless eons. A seed of hatred had taken root in his heart.
Overthrow the Origin Court…
Nangong Jiayin ws frightened. She only felt this notion was nothing but crazy.
The Origin Court was exceptionally powerful, almost to the level of invincible. How could it be overthrown?
All the universes were created by the Kunlun Origin Court. Who could defy the Kunlun Origin Court.
“The last Sovereign and I were brothers. But in order to become the Sovereign, he stabbed me. Originally, I had the most hope in becoming the Sovereign!” Heavenly Sage Dawude grinded his teeth as he answered. His eyes were burning with fury.
“In order to make amends, he didn’t kill me. In the end, he even gave the Sovereign Divine Fetuses to me, let me look after them. But he deceived me and only left my soul. How could I take it?”
“Even after I suppressed the Sovereign Divine Fetuses that guy never returned. He sacrificed himself for the Kunlun Origin Court. That’s what I learned from the other creatures.”
Naturally, others had come here before Zhou Xuanji and Nangong Jiayin.
“In that case, why do you want to destroy the Origin Court? Because you can’t find an enemy?” asked Zhou Xuanji.
He always felt that there was some secret here.
Can the Sovereign’s position be competed for?
What kind of competition can help become one a Sovereign?
Heavenly Sage Dawude replied, “Yes, in the final analysis, it’s the Sovereign position. He and I grew up together with no father and mother. We have experienced life and death. But in the end…”
The more he talked, the angrier he grew. His eyes widened in anger.
Zhou Xuanji said, “Okay, I promise you.”
Let’s get out of here first!
Destroy the Origin Court, what bullshit!
Heavenly Sage Dawude looked at him deeply and said, “Don’t think that you can fool me. If you learn this divine ability, you will definitely become the enemy of the Sovereign.”
Nangong Jiayin furrowed her brow as she looked at Zhou Xuanji, hoping that he would not be impulsive.
Now it became apparent that Heavenly Sage Dawude was far from simple. He was extremely crazy and wanted to destroy the Kunlun Origin Court.
Without the Kunlun Origin Court, all the heavens and universes would be shattered.
Zhou Xuanji was lost in his thoughts.
He was thinking about how to retreat from here unscathed.
He hated this feeling of being threatened the most. Even if it was by chance, he was very upset.
He had encountered many such threats in the first half of his life.
“No need! He won’t be your disciple!” suddenly, an indifferent voice rang.
Beast Sovereign had arrived tearing through space. His figure was wrapped in black Qi. His eyes were filled with killing intent.
Nangong Jiayin was pleasantly surprised by his appearance.
We are saved!
Zhou Xuanji hadn’t expected for the Beast Sovereign to suddenly come.
The Beast Sovereign stared at Heavenly Sage Dawude and coldly stated, “This Sovereign had already set his eyes on him. Who dares to threaten him?”
He raised his hand and smacked the air, directly smacking Heavenly Sage Dawude’s soul.
The wooden sign flew out of the wooden sword and fell into Zhou Xuanji’s left hand.
The Beast Sovereign looked at Zhou Xuanji and said, “Return with this Sovereign, the mission this time is too difficult for you.”
Beast Sovereign heaved a sigh of relief after seeing Zhou Xuanji completely fine.
At this moment, Origin Court War God rushed in, tearing the space.
He glared at Beast Sovereign and shouted, “Beast Sovereign, when will you stop fooling around?”
