The Sky Sword Sect was a place that belonged to the sword. There was never a time when there was no whistling or clanging of swords.
Ever since Bai Jingtian had swept everything with his sword, the Sky Sword Sect had become the Holy Land of the sword. No one had dared to challenge the Sky Sword Sect for many years.
However, when Luo Yunyang carried the broken blade and appeared soundlessly outside the Sky Sword Sect, a depressing feeling that felt like a black cloud crushing upon them filled the hearts of almost all the Sky Sword Sect disciples.
Regardless of whether they were cultivating or meditating, all of them felt a huge pressure that made them breathless. Under this pressure, some people could not even draw their swords.
The Blade Demon had arrived!
Nobody knew who in the Sky Sword Sect spread this news, but although the whole Sky Sword Sect had the intent to fight, no one really rushed out.
In the entire Sky Sword Sect, only Bai Jingtian could deal with an entity capable of killing the Holy Divination Emperor.
Therefore, every member of the large Sky Sword Sect had their eyes focused on Bai Jingtian’s seclusion ground. They were waiting for Bai Jingtian to come out and fight.
As the sect master of the Sky Sword Sect, Ruan Shenhui felt that he had a heavy burden on his shoulders.
Although he had already made preparations, he still felt unable to bear this sort of pressure.
“Senior Brother, it should be here!” Ruan Shenhui was standing at the base of an inconspicuous mountain. There was a cave dwelling on the mountain whose owner was a Sky Sword Sect disciple who wasn’t very famous.
Although this disciple wasn’t so outstanding, he had been in seclusion for many years and had not appeared since the day he had entered seclusion.
Judging by the circumstances of this investigation, this person was probably the last reincarnated embodiment of the Blade Demon.
In the past, he had been so ambitious that he had wanted to destroy his opponent’s greatest support on behalf of his master. However, this situation was like a hot potato, so it was very difficult for him to decide.
“Where is he?” Ruan Shenhui did not mention the reincarnation embodiment. Instead, he asked about Luo Yunyang’s movements.
“Outside the sect!” a voice answered stiffly.
Ruan Shenhui took a deep breath. He wanted to deal with this matter, but he knew that it was already beyond his abilities.
If something went wrong, he would certainly die!
Of course, the Sky Sword Sect wasn’t afraid of fighting. However, at the moment, the only person in the entire Sky Sword Sect who qualified to be that person’s opponent was Bai Jingtian.
“I am going to seek an audience with the master,” Ruan Shenhui said while heading towards the most central peak of the Sky Sword Mountain.
However, he stopped after just taking two steps. He had seen a figure.
A figure that appeared like an illusion. However, when he saw this figure, Ruan Shenhui was sure that he wasn’t mistaken. This was his master’s silhouette.
“Is the Master out of seclusion?” someone asked Ruan Shenhui quietly.
After two confident glances, Ruan Shenhui shook his head and said, “No, this is just an embodiment of him.”
Given Bai Jingtian’s cultivation, an embodiment was often able to annihilate a whole sect or destroy a great family. It was even able to cause massive, permanent damage to the environment.
However, Bai Jingtian had sent out an embodiment to fight the Blade Demon Ye Tian this time. Even his most trusted disciple, Ruan Shenhui, did not believe that he could win.
After all, the opponent was a powerhouse who had killed a Sacred Celestial.
“Go! Follow it and observe it,” Ruan Shenhui said softly, although he had already made a vague guess.
Thanks to Ruan Shenhui and the others’ speed, it took them just a moment to follow Bai Jingtian’s embodiment and leave the Sky Sword Mountain.
Bai Jingtian’s embodiment did not seem any different from the real person. The only tell was that Bai Jingtian’s embodiment ignored all his disciples.
“Ye Tian, I will call you Ye Tian for the time being. That should probably be right.” Bai Jingtian’s embodiment looked at Luo Yunyang and spoke in a calm voice.
The reason why Luo Yunyang did not charge straight into the Sky Sword Mountain was because he felt that dauntless Sword Qi and Bai Jingtian’s imposing aura envelop the Sky Sword Mountain the moment he arrived.
He felt even more strongly that Bai Jingtian wanted to come and see him.
Therefore, he did not enter the Sky Sword Mountain right away and didn’t do anything but stand outside the Sky Sword Mountain. He was like a huge mountain compared to the disciples of the Sky Sword Sect.
A mountain that was crushing the spirits of all the disciples of the Sky Sword Sect, making it difficult for them to breathe.
“That’s right.” Luo Yunyang was extremely calm as he replied indifferently and watched the silhouette enveloped in a layer of sword-light.
“I hope you will not disappoint me after three years,” said the embodiment of Bai Jingtian.
After saying that, the embodiment turned his gaze towards Ruan Shenhui and the others. “Brother Ye may walk freely in the Sky Sword Sect.”
With that, the silhouette turned into Sword Qi and disappeared without a trace.
Ruan Shenhui and the others watched in disbelief. However, they also knew that there was absolutely no one on the Sky Sword Mountain who would dare pretend to be their master.
This meant that the words that had just been spoken by the master of the Sky Sword Mountain, Bai Jingtian, were true.
“Your disciples shall do as you bid!” Ruan Shenhui answered respectfully after taking a deep breath.
Although Luo Yunyang had always acted indifferently, he had been prepared to fight before stepping onto the Sky Sword Mountain.
Even though Bai Jingtian’s cultivation base was high and Bai Jingtian was not to be trifled with, he could never allow the Energy Shifter Ability that he had cultivated to have a severe flaw.
Bai Jingtian could make his move. There was nothing stopping him. Luo Yunyang, who could feel it, was extremely confident about this.
Bai Jingtian’s decision made Luo Yunyang respect him a little more. Suddenly, Luo Yunyang kind of understood Bai Jingtian’s intentions.
This was the sort of pride that belonged to the Sky Sword.
With a faint smile, Luo Yunyang stepped onto the Sky Sword Mountain. No one obstructed his way or uttered a word. It seemed as if everyone was oblivious to his presence.
Many of the people watching the Sky Sword Mountain were disappointed the moment Luo Yunyang stepped onto the Sky Sword Mountain.
The Black Emperor and the Burning Emperor were particularly disappointed. They had hoped that Luo Yunyang and Bai Jingtian would have a terrible war.
However, Bai Jingtian did not even stop Luo Yunyang.
“I am inferior to Bai Jingtian’s broad-mindedness!” the Black Emperor muttered to himself after taking a deep breath.
The Burning Emperor did not utter a word, nor did he use his consciousness to look into the Sky Sword Mountain. He knew that he would really be courting death if he chose to scout the Sky Sword Mountain right now.
“The stronger they are, the better. The stronger the two of them are, the more intense their clash on the Heavenly Venerate Platform will be…”
“Maybe, in the end, neither side will win. They will both just suffer huge damage.”
The two of them did not speak loudly. They quickly dissipated after this conversation.
All the forces that were watching this meeting of the Blade and Sword quickly left with their own people after hearing the news.
This news surprised them, but also made them feel admiration. Of course, they also felt fear.
Luo Yunyang was standing on a small mountain peak in the Sky Sword Mountain. He was very familiar with this mountain peak. This was the place where he had trained for 100 years during his second reincarnation cycle.
If there was a weak cultivation base among his ten reincarnation cycles, the second reincarnation was undoubtedly it.
However, this second body of reincarnation was the most important to Luo Yunyang, because he had actually comprehended the Energy Shifter Ability during the second reincarnation.
All the seals on the mountain peaks were no different than when Luo Yunyang had left 800 years ago. After glancing at Bai Jingtian’s position, he stepped into the mountain.
The entire Sky Sword Sect calmed down at once when Luo Yunyang entered the small mountain peak. However, Ruan Shenhui and the other higher-ups of the Sky Sword Mountain had unwilling and fearful expressions on their faces.
The Holy Divination Emperor’s words constantly reverberated in their minds. They too had witnessed Luo Yunyang’s might just some time ago.
The unperfected Blade Demon was already really powerful. If the Blade Demon was allowed to perfect his ten reincarnations, could the Master win the Battle between the Blade and the Sword?
The disciples of the Sky Sword Sect had always had full confidence in Bai Jingtian. However, they now all felt hints of doubt.
Ruan Shenhui sat on a mountain peak on the Sky Sword Mountain, staring at the mountain peak Luo Yunyang had entered. Although he knew that staring at it wouldn’t do much, he still couldn’t help but stare.
One day, two days, three days passed…
In just the blink of an eye, a year had passed. Ruan Shenhui finally stood up from the mountain peak and returned to his cultivation ground.
The legend regarding the battle between the Blade Demon and the Sky Sword slowly quieted down. However, the biggest geniuses believed that this battle was definitely going to happen and it would be even crazier.
Three years passed in a hurry.
The Heavenly Venerate Platform was getting clearer and clearer in the void. On the ninth day of the ninth lunar month of the third year, there was a rumble between heaven and earth.
10,000 paths appeared along with that loud rumble!
Each path, like a rainbow, led directly to the Heavenly Venerate Platform!
At the moment, almost all the martialists could feel their own cultivation base improve rapidly. Meanwhile, some people even broke through the constraints that had restricted them for many years.
However, not many people paid attention to this. Due to the complete appearance of the Heavenly Venerate Platform, almost all eyes were once again on the Sky Sword Mountain.
This time, there wasn’t just a Sky Sword on the mountain, but also a Blade Demon.
In the Tianyunshen Dynasty, almost everyone understood that this Heavenly Venerate Platform would end up in the hands of one or the other.
However, no one dared to speculate who would be the victor!
The battle was about to begin!
