On the top of Taixuan Mountain, Lord Taixuan sat above the palace, bathed in the divine light of the Great Path.
His body seemed to be connected with the Nine Heavens. Above the endless void, the will of the Way entered the body and created a certain wondrous resonance with it. And that character of the Way, likewise, also bloomed in endless radiance, connecting the boundless vast area, covering the entire Taixuan Region.
Anyone within Taixuan Region, even if they were hundreds of thousands of miles apart, could still feel the impact Lord Taixuan had on breaking into the realm. Such an extraordinary state was enough to make countless many yearn and dream, even those who had already proved the existence of Renhuang, were still looking solemn, gazing in the direction of Taixuan Mountain.
When this step was crossed, Lord Taixuan would be a giant figure standing at the peak of the Higher Heavens Realm, and even beyond the Higher Heavens Realm, he would probably be the very top of all of the 3,000 Realms of the Great Path.
There were still many preeminent characters in the 3,000 Realms of the Great Path, but those who had taken this step were probably the minority.
Ye Futian did not know how many such old monsters still existed in the Higher Heavens Realm, but according to what he knew, in the Heavenly Mandate Realm where he was, only Gu Tianxing was at that level. The old overlord of the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty may have been another, but after the destruction inflicted by both sides, there may be no one left at this level at the Heavenly Mandate Realm. Of course, if there were the existence of hidden masters, that was beyond his knowledge.
Therefore, he clearly understood the significance of Lord Taixuans breakthrough. Not only did he understand it, but everyone else understood as well. Otherwise, Old Demon Luo of Divine Capital of Xiling would not have attacked and tried to forcibly interrupt Lord Taixuan, even wanting to wound him.
The powerful Golden Divine Nation even wanted to have their most outstanding princeGai Shi Shito be his disciple. From this, one could understand the significance.
The palace lord of Divine Music Palace did not leave; neither did the divine generals of the Golden Divine Nation. All the other top principalities were all in attendance, watching Lord Taixuan impacting the realm. It seemed as if it was some great attraction to them.
In fact, not only them, but as time passed, more and more prominent characters had arrived, except that they did not show themselves. Some were covered by thousands of miles of divine will, and some were around Taixuan Mountain or inside Taixuan City.
It would not be an overstatement to say that the breakthrough this time, was a highly anticipated event in all of the Upper Heavens Realm.
The light of the character of the Way was getting more brilliant, and its will was getting stronger. Ye Futian sat cross-legged, and, like many disciples of Taixuan Mountain, he was quietly comprehending and cultivating as Lord Taixuans breakthrough was another kind of teaching. Such opportunity was pure luck could not be sought out. It all depended on themselves how much one could comprehend.
Ye Futians will blended with the character of the Way, wandering between heaven and earth. He felt the power of creation in heaven and earth, as well as the omnipresent Way. Gradually, Ye Futian gave way to a very strong sensation, allowing him to control the Way more freely. This sensation of freedom was extremely gratifying. It was as if no matter the distance, he was still able to exert control.
In a blink of an eye, many days had passed, but the people on Taixuan Mountain seemed to have forgotten the time. Many woke up from cultivation and looked at Lord Taixuan.
Had there still been no breakthrough?
Now, the divine light had reached the Nine Heavens, and the Way flowed between heaven and earth. Even so, Lord Taixuan seemed to have not yet reached the limit needed to break through.
All four disciples of Lord Taixuan were guarding and protecting his surroundings, preventing anyone from interfering with Lord Taixuans cultivation.
"It seems that this realm is hard." Not far from Ye Futian, Wan Shouyi looked at Lord Taixuan, frowning, as if worried for him. As a disciple of Sword Abyss, of course, he wanted Lord Taixuan to breakthrough.
However, it seemed extremely difficult to break through this realm.
"Old Demon Luo dared to venture here and disturb the grandmaster because he knew that this realm would not be easy to get through. He didnt expect that the grandmaster had already transformed before the actual breakthrough, being able to defeat him with a single blow." Luoyue glanced over with a solemn look on her face. "Although it is difficult, I believe the grandmaster can do it."
"Well, itll take a thousand years to form one sword. Lord Taixuan did not establish a clan or school, and he was rarely involved in external disputes all to maintain a peaceful state of mind. He is a true and pure cultivator." Wan Shouyi also nodded in response.
"Senior brother, on Taixuan Mountain, are there swordsman with tremendous sword technique?" Luoyue seemed to have thought of something and asked Wan Shouyi.
"You are asking about those from before, right?" Wan Shouyi instinctively understood her intention but shook his head. "I cultivate in Sword Abyss, and Im pretty confident in my swordsmanship. My cultivation of the second level of the Fleeting Divine Sword is incredibly skilled. However, when that sword appeared, I realized I was but a frog at the bottom of a well. The man who controlled the sword has skills that far surpass mine, but in daily practice in the Sword Abyss, I was unaware of the existence of such a swordsman and have no idea who it was that concealed their true strength."
"Senior brother, do you think its possible?" Luoyue suddenly said to Wan Shouyi.
"Impossible," Wan Shouyi said decisively. "If so, would Lord Taixuan deliberately elevate the disciples of Taixuan Mountain?"
Lord Taixuan had already said that it was a disciple of Saint Plane from Taixuan Mountain, so it must have been so.
"Im being silly," Luoyue said. She felt that she was indeed a little crazy. Because of the power and mystery of that sword, she had wild thoughts, to the point that she was even questioning the words of Lord Taixuan.
But as soon Wan Shouyi said that, she didnt think about it anymore.
There probably were some disciples with hidden strengths in the Sword Abyss.
At this moment, a breath of terror flowed about. Above the Nine Heavens, countless divine light of the Great Path fell in the direction where Lord Taixuan was. It penetrated his body so that his entirety was radiant. It was as if he was on the verge of transforming into a divine body.
The mighty holy pressure was now overwhelming the space. Lord Taixuans eyes suddenly opened, and he looked toward the sky. This look seemed to have penetrated the boundless void, looking beyond this world.
"The Heavenly Path is incomplete," an ephemeral voice said, which seemed to contain endless sigh. It was as if the gods were sighing.
This mournful sound made countless people felt a deep sense of sorrow. It was as if they were involuntarily affected by it. Such influence was astonishing. Just a voice alone was enough to affect everyone.
The Heavenly Path was incomplete!
Those preeminent characters also looked up at the sky, for they also knew that the Heavenly Path was incomplete.
At the peak of Taixuan Mountain, Lord Taixuan took out a guqin and plucked at the strings with his fingers. In an instant, the sound of music penetrated the endless void along with the Great Path and fell into countless peoples ears.
The melody was like the sound of the Great Path. When the music started, many felt a sadness, a mood that seemed to speak of endless regrets.
"The lost sound of the Great Path, the Song of Lost Divine." The eyes of the palace lord of Divine Music Palace instantly became extremely sharp, as if penetrating the void. He looked toward Lord Taixuan as if to watch every move Lord Taixuan made. He listened to each musical note to brand them into his mind.
"Listen carefully," he said to several disciples from Shangxiao Divine Palace who were next to him. The lost sound of the Great Path, the Song of Lost Divine was one of the ten divine melodies. It was known as the true divine sound of the Great Path.
It was rumored that the epitome of sword technique at Taixuan Mountainthe Fleeting Divine Swordwas created by combining the Song of the Lost Divine and swordsmanship.
Now, Lord Taixuan was playing the Song of Lost Divine upon Taixuan Mountain. Even though he was the palace lord of Divine Music Palace, he wanted to brand the entire melody in his memory.
At this moment, Ye Futian also looked very grave. He sat cross-legged, and his eyes became endlessly deep. His entire person entered an extremely curious state. It was as if he had completely forgotten about himself and had become ethereal, immersed in the sound of the music.
This melody carried with it endless regret and sadness. It seemed to be describing the sorrow of cultivation. After cultivating for a lifetime, he had no choice but to refuse the Way, desolate, and filled with pain. There were also regrets.
Upon hearing this music, many cultivators, who were not determined enough, now sensed a strong pessimism. At this moment, they seemed to want to put down all that they had worked for and completely forget about their cultivation.
Even as the will of the Way reversed, the breath inside their bodies became disorderly and moved out of their control.
Soon, some peoples eyes became bloody red. It was as if they were in a trance, entering an uncontrollable state. Some even started damaging their own foundations.
"Dont be affected by the music," someone alerted the others. Ye Futian also shared the same feeling as the breath in his body became jumbled. What kind of existence was the composer who created this melody?
The will of the Great Path roared wildly between heaven and earth. Accompanied by the sound of the melody, the breath inside of Lord Taixuan was also roaring wildly, making booming sounds. The world was changing.
The sound of guqin soared as if to compete with the Great Path, disregarding fate, aiming to contend with the Heavenly Path. There was a long river racing between heaven and earth, which made Taixuan Mountain tremble. Everyone within Taixuan Region felt a terrible shock.
Finally, with the last note, a divine light seemed to penetrate the Nine Heavens. Lord Taixuan stood up, the robe on his body fluttered wildly in the wind. The will of the Way beat about his body. He looked incomparably great and insufferably arrogant.
At this moment, the entire Taixuan Region shook once, and then, all the breath between heaven and earth began to calm down.
"Success?" The disciples of Taixuan Mountain murmured and stared in that one direction.
At this time, people came from all directions, possessing supreme temperaments. Some were immortal, some were domineering, but there were also extraordinary empresses among them.
"Congratulations to Lord Taixuan," a voice said. The palace lord of Divine Music Palace looked at Lord Taixuan with a very complicated look in his eyes.
"Congratulations," many stepped into the void and paid their respects to Taixuan Palace. Everyone who arrived was a great, powerful existence in the Higher Heavens Realm.
When the people of Taixuan Mountain saw what they were doing, they were extremely moved. Did he succeed?
"Congratulations to the lord." The disciples of Taixuan Mountain bowed down to worship him.
The divine general of the Golden Divine Nation looked in the direction of Lord Taixuan. His eyes were a little complicated. Lord Taixuan had actually achieved this step, and from this moment on, he was no longer qualified to talk to Lord Taixuan as an equal, but must respectfully refer to him as an elder.
Beside him, Gai Shi Shis eyes emitted divine golden light. Had he made the breakthrough?
Ye Futian watched all this quietly.
He looked towards Lord Taixuan. From this day forward, Lord Taixuans status in the Higher Heavens Realm leaped again, and he now stood at the pinnacle of giants!
