Chapter 463 – The Northern Seal
Esteemed Lan Yue had never liked to waste time with useless words. He went right to the point, "Yue Suhua and Lord Chuibi have rare treasures on them, and they also have high cultivation bases. If we truly fight, only You Ming will be a match for them. So try to avoid a direct confrontation with them unless its an act of last resort."
Feng Jingyu looked at Esteemed Lan Yue in surprise and asked, "Kongsang, isnt your cultivation level better than Ying Chuibis?"
Esteemed Lan Yue answered indifferently, "My body and soul were too damaged in the past, so my cultivation base has been stagnant for a long time and I have not recovered yet. I certainly cant compare with the Black and White Crow Guards, these killing gods who deal with dead people all day long. What about you, when will you recover your cultivation?"
Feng Jingyu looked like he had a long story to tell as well. "If I want to recover, I can recover overnight. But if I recover here, Im afraid the whole Five Continents will be in chaos. I have to go back to the Nine Lands before I dare to recover."
After understanding the meaning of his words, Esteemed Lan Yue said, "Then youd better take your time. Its enough to stay as a bird for the time being."
Feng Jingyu, "."
Lin Xuanzhi pondered for a moment and then suggested, "If Yin Xinghan can call external assistance, why cant we? I think Martial Uncle and Master also have many old friends in the Upper Realm. I have pondered over the Voice Transmission Talismans that can be used across the worlds these days, and I think I can refine them."
Esteemed Lan Yue looked at Lin Xuanzhi with deep meaning as he replied, "Your father is probably the only one in the Nine Lands willing to directly oppose Yan Zizhang. However, I have no influence in front of him. Why dont you try it?"
You Ming sighed and spoke with a bit of bitterness, "I found when I have a need for people, I have nobody whom I can use. My network is actually this bad."
Esteemed Lan Yue glanced at him. "Its good that you know this in your heart. Who told you to bully others by relying on your high cultivation and a strong backer?"
You Ming glared angrily at Esteemed Lan Yue for a moment. "Elder Martial BrotherSay, if I ask him, will he come to the Five Continents to help me?"
Esteemed Lan Yue replied flatly, "He is such an upright gentleman. If youre in trouble, he will definitely be willing to sacrifice his life to save you."
"Then I better not look for him."
Esteemed Lan Yue glanced at him without responding.
Yue Suhua snorted when she saw this, then smiled and stretched out her finger and scratched Qu Buyis chin. She said frivolously, "Why are you so nervous? I wont do anything bad to your Master. I just want to talk to him about something."
Qu Buyis expression didnt change, but he retreated a few steps while fixing Yue Suhua with a death stare. Although Ying Xinghan had a bad temper, he could still distinguish what people he couldnt afford to provoke. These two were popular in Yan Zizhangs eyes and were also his colleagues, so they were considered acquaintances. Naturally, he wouldnt bother arguing over such a small matter.
Yin Xinghan glanced at Yue Suhua. "Buyi is introverted. You shouldnt tease him."
Yue Suhua took back her hand and spoke, "Master Shen Ji, Master sent me and Lord Chuibi to the lower realm to help you without another word. Back then, we only knew that you had found the son of King Ye and Demon Venerable You Ming, but we didnt know that there were so many incredible people hiding in this small Five Continents."
"For example?" Yin Xinghan asked, "What kind of rumors have you heard now?"
Lord Chuibi was not tall; he still looked like a fifteen or sixteen-year-old boy, but he had an extremely gloomy face. He walked to Yin Xinghan and raised his eyelids to look at him. "I just want to know who is the Lin Xuanzhi drawn on that wanted portrait."
In the end, Lin Xuanzhis face still brought disaster.
Yin Xinghan curled his lips. "You really have great observation skills. You actually noticed Lin Xuanzhi."
"Its hard for him not to be noticed." Yue Suhua smiled charmingly. "With that kind of appearance, my heart tickled when I fought with him that day. I cant wait to see him a few more times."
Ying Chuibi said coldly, "His face looks very similar to my enemys. Dont tell me that Master Shen Ji couldnt divine his true identity?"
Yin Xinghan tilted his head dismissively. "If you already know the answer to this kind of thing, why bother asking me? A few years ago, you placed hundreds of Scarlet Kill Orders on behalf of Master, casting a wide net in various small worlds to hunt down Lin Zhan, or Lin Guangling. How can you not know why Master wanted to hunt him down?"
Yin Xinghan didnt know that day, but now he had the benefit of hindsight. Naturally, he held a grudge in his heart.
Lord Chuibi said frankly, "Master just thought that the fewer people knew about this matter, the better."
Yin Xinghan nodded. "The same words, the same reason. You dont have to ask me anything."
Lord Chuibis complexion sank, but he also stopped blaming Yin Xinghan for not telling Lin Xuanzhis identity. "Is Lin Xuanzhi really Xuan Wushes son?"
"Youll know just by looking at that face."
"I must kill him." Lord Chuibi revealed a fierce killing intent.
Yue Suhua laughed. "Why would Lord Chuibi destroy the pretty flowers so fiercely? Why dont I capture him and love him well, then kill him? If Xuan Wushe knew that his son had become a chunk of meat for my exclusive consumption, he would feel even worse than if he found out that his son had died."
Ying Chuibi disagreed, "Cut the grass at its roots to avoid future troubles."
Yin Xinghan thought secretly, It seems that although Lord Chuibi and Yue Suhua know Lin Xuanzhis identity now, they still dont know the secret prophecy from back then. However, since they have a strong intention to kill Lin Xuanzhi, theres no need to let them know about the prophecy, so as not to create complications.
Yin Xinghan changed the subject, "The urgent task right now is not how to handle Lin Xuanzhi and Yan Tianhen, but to fight for the Four Directions Seal on Thousand Stars Island."
Yue Suhua was unconcerned. "If I deal with Yan Tianhen and Lin Xuanzhi, the Jade Cicada King will belong to me. After that, finding those magic treasures will naturally come easily."
Yin Xinghan shook his head. "Im afraid it wont be so easy. Since Esteemed Huai Yu has been confirmed to be Demon Venerable You Ming, plus Yin Kongsangs current cultivation base is unfathomable. Whats more, the West Phoenix Monarch also stood on Lin Xuanzhi and Yan Tianhens side, and Im afraid he would be even more difficult to deal with."
Yue Suhua couldnt help laughing. "Is it possible that Master Shen Ji is befuddled? Our goal is only to kill Yan Tianhen and Lin Xuanzhi. As for Yin Kongsang and You Ming, well wait until theyve returned to the Nine Lands to deal with them. You dont have to be afraid of the West Phoenix Monarch at all. With his temperament, if his cultivation was truly still there, Im afraid you wouldve been a corpse long ago."
Lord Chuibi also nodded. "Even if phoenixes can be reborn from the ashes, it is not without cost. You shouldnt worry about him."
"You two are confident," Yin Xinghan remarked.
"Naturally." Yue Suhua said, "In one months time, the barrier to the South Continents Great Demon-Sealing Array will open. Before that, we must find the Jade Cicada King."
Yin Xinghan was full of confidence. "If you want to find the Jade Cicada King, you only need to wait here for the rabbit to run into the tree stump, but when the rabbit comes, whether or not we can catch the rabbit depends on the two of you."
Lord Chuibi said coldly, "As long as a certain someone doesnt show mercy because she was bewitched by beauty, everything will be fine."
Yue Suhua sneered and lightly touched her fingernails, which were dyed red. Although Yue Suhua and Lord Chuibi talked about this like it wasnt a big deal, it wasnt a simple matter if they truly wanted to kill Lin Xuanzhi and Yan Tianhen. Yan Tianhen and Lin Xuanzhi had undergone You Mings unique face-changing technique, plus Lin Xuanzhi had refined a magic treasure to conceal their auras. Additionally, Xia Xiaochan could make barriers to assist them. These factors made it difficult for others to find their position. Secondly, whenever Yan Tianhen and Lin Xuanzhi went out, there must be You Ming and Lan Yue following closely behind them to personally protect them, for fear of something going wrong. They refused to give their enemies an opportunity. Therefore, Yin Xinghan had never seen any trace of Lin Xuanzhi and Yan Tianhen again ever since he last saw them at the exit to Heavenly Swamp Mysterious Land.
In a blink of an eye, half a month passed.
Yin Xinghan originally planned to dig out Yan Tianhens location through divination, but another event happened, which made him leave Lin Xuanzhi and Yan Tianhen behind in an instant.
The North Continents seal actually showed signs of loosening, and according to his observations of the celestial bodies, the magic treasure that North Continents Demon-Sealing Array suppressed was the Heavenly Thunder Tripod.
The so-called Heavenly Thunder Tripod was a treasure that was only seen during the formation of Heaven and Earth. It could suppress the demon clans, eliminate all evils, and could also command the thunder throughout the Nine Heavens and resist lightning tribulations. It was an exceptional magic treasure that was born from nature. It was impossible for any cultivator to not be tempted. Its just that this Heavenly Thunder Tripod had already disappeared for many years, and no one thought that it would appear in the North Continents Great Demon-Sealing Array on the Five Continents.
Yin Xinghan was both pleasantly surprised and worried. He also found out about this occasion accidentally. For fear of being discovered by Lin Xuanzhi and the others, he didnt even continue looking for them. He secretly sent Ren Bulin to the North Continent, where Ren Bulin contacted Heavenly Fire Sect and found the Heavenly Thunder Tripod, whose location was already very obvious.
Because everyones attention had been attracted by South Continents Four Directions Seal, the fewest number of people tried to snatch North Continents Heavenly Thunder Tripod, even though its location was particularly prominent. Even the Great Demon-Sealing Array had appeared on an ice lake, so the entrance was very obvious. It was half a month before Esteemed Lan Yue sensed that the Heavenly Thunder Tripod had appeared three years earlier than he had predicted, but Yin Xinghan had already obtained the magic treasure by that time.
It was too late.
Esteemed Lan Yue and the others were regretful, but they also knew that it was too late for regrets.
"The Heavenly Thunder Tripod has fallen into Yin Xinghans hands." Esteemed Lan Yue had a gloomy expression as he slammed the astrolabe in front of him hard, causing all the black and white stars on it to scatter.
Seeing this, You Ming comforted, "Its merely a Heavenly Thunder Tripod. Its no big deal. We have the Twin Lotus Lamp in our hands. In a few days, maybe the Four Directions Seal will also fall into our hands."
Esteemed Lan Yue looked up at You Ming and asked, "The item I asked you to prepare, is it ready?"
You Ming smiled. "Since Im handling this, Elder Martial Brother can rest assured."
Esteemed Lan Yue took a deep breath. "We must not let the third magic treasure fall into their hands. Speaking of which, the Four Directions Seal is much more important than the Heavenly Thunder Tripod."
"I know." You Ming nodded, then let out a rare sigh.
