News of Ye Futian snatching the holy badge of Yan Jiu from Sword Saint Villa naturally caused some commotion. Yuan Zhan of the Golden Great Ape clan had actually partnered with Ye Futian. This made the other top forces feel danger and start discussing temporary alliances. If Ye Futian and Yuan Zhan dared to invade them together, they would unite and fight back.
Yan Jiu had also gone there to get a share. Flying Sword City was taken now, so he could only put his hopes on the other cities. However, the relic in Flying Sword City was the only swordsman relic on the Holy Road. He was furious at this.
However, Ye Futian didn’t continue stealing. Yuan Zhan, Yi Xiaoshi and the others needed to cultivate. Yuan Zhan was a Golden Great Ape, so he naturally had gold elemental power. Yi Xiaoshi was the same. They’d both returned to the relic in Jinxiao City to cultivate. Ye Futian prepared to cultivate quietly before opening the Holy Road. He hoped to make improvements in cultivation quickly.
Days passed. In the blink of an eye, they’d been on the Holy Road for three months.
That day, Ye Wuchen was inside a relic in the Flying Sword City. Thousands upon thousands of swords spun around him. Endless Sword Will whistled. Ye Wuchen’s eyes were shut tightly as domineering power emanated from him.
Crackle, crackle Even more terrifying Sword Will flowed over, wrapping around Ye Wuchen and gathering before him. His entire body was silvery-white like a sword. He’d transformed into a true sword body. At this moment, sword light flashed above him. Thousands of Sword Will buried into him, turning his body into a sword. He bore horrible power right now.
He trembled. The sword Qi around him transformed into a frightening storm that swept towards him crazily.
Countless eyes in the relic turned towards Ye Wuchen. Hearts trembling violently, they wondered what he was doing.
“He’s entering the next level,” someone said. Thousands of Sword Will entered him and his body turned translucent like a sword. He was using the relic’s Sword Will to smelt his body into a sword and break into the next plane. Doing this was dangerous because the Sword Will here was so frightening. Not only did he have to comprehend it, he also had to swallow the Sword Will. This was crazy. He could die from the Sword Will’s backlash.
“He’ll break into the next plane sooner or later. Why do this?” someone lamented. Some people were truly crazy for cultivation. Ye Wuchen was evidently one of those people.
Sword Qi completely submerged Ye Wuchen, almost tearing him to pieces. Cracks appeared in the sword body that he hadn’t completely formed yet. He could break apart at any time and turn to dust.
Right now, Ye Wuchen was completely concentrated. His mind was clear and he allowed the Sword Will to enter him without moving. Finally, terrifying sword light burst from him. All Sword Will fell silent in an instant. Then they started flowing orderly. Ye Wuchen opened his eyes. The Sword Will entered his body and gradually dissipated. However, his entire temperament seemed to change. He was like a sword standing there.
“Noble.” Everyone’s eyes flashed. Ye Wuchen had entered the Noble Plane.
Ye Wuchen had been in the ninth tier of the Arcana Plane. After being bathed with the relic’s purest Sword Will, he naturally improved greatly. He wasn’t like Ye Futian either. He only cultivated swordsmanship, so he fit the relic perfectly. This suited him better than the relics that Ye Futian and Yu Sheng found. Thus, he broke through the boundary of plane and entered the Noble Plane.
“Is everyone done cultivating?” Ye Wuchen asked.
“The Holy Road will open soon. Let’s stop here. Shall we regroup with Master Ye in Jinxiao City?” someone asked.
“Okay.” Ye Wuchen nodded. He stepped forward and the light on him dimmed gradually. The relic’s light darkened as well before finally disappearing.
“Let’s go,” Ye Wuchen said. The group flashed and headed towards Jinxiao City.
The journey down the Holy Road had ended. Many of them had entered the next level. Even those who didn’t had comprehended a lot and were close to the next level. Adding the Sage Will to this, they’d all received a lot. They also had holy badges and could go visit the Holy Zhi Palace. Even if they couldn’t join it, it was still a rare chance.
In the Jinxiao City’s relic, Ye Futian, Yu Sheng and the others had stopped cultivating too. Seeing Ye Wuchen return, Ye Futian smiled. “Wuchen, you broke into the next plane?” he asked.
He noticed that Ye Wuchen’s temperament was different.
“Yes.” Ye Wuchen nodded.
“Not bad. Little Eagle has entered the Noble Plane too. Seventh Senior Brother is now a Grade-7 Noble, Zhiqiu is Grade-8, and Yu Sheng and I are at the pinnacle of the Arcana Plane. I think that I can become a Noble at any time,” Ye Futian said, smiling. This journey was quite satisfying. Everyone had great achievements. Not only was he close to entering the Noble Plane, he’d also comprehended many types of Noble Will. Once he became a Noble, he would be much stronger than the regular Nobles.
“Master Ye, thank you for your care on the Holy Road.” Many people thanked Ye Futian. He didn’t know who they were, but some of them had followed him from the start. No one had known how powerful Ye Futian was at that time. They only knew that he was a relic killer.
Later, he began to make a name for himself on the Holy Road. He’d even stolen from Yan Jiu. Ning Huang had died in his and Yu Sheng’s hands too.
Ye Futian was undeniably the most brilliant man on the Dawn Road. Of course, Xiao Junyi was also a frightening figure. However, he was too cold-blooded and killed everyone. Naturally, he wasn’t popular.
“We helped each other. I didn’t take care of anyone,” Ye Futian said, chuckling. “The Holy Road will be open soon. I hope everyone will have good luck.”
“Yes. We’ll reach the Holy Zhi Palace soon. I’m a bit excited. I wonder what this holy land will be like,” someone mumbled.
“It’s rumored that the Holy Zhi Palace is a palace in the sky. It’s grand and majestic, with many floating islands around it. It’s the most miraculous place in the Barren State.”
“I heard that before too. Now, I can finally see it with my own eyes.” Cultivators from all over were excited to see the cultivation paradise of the Barren State.
If they could become a disciple and cultivate in the Holy Zhi Palace, then
They’d heard that the Holy Zhi Palace’s disciples were mostly in the Sage Plane. However, they didn’t accept many disciples. Many people completed the nine Holy Roads, but only one in a thousand were picked to cultivate in the Holy Zhi Palace.
Ye Futian listened to their murmurs while thinking about something else.
He was curious about the Holy Zhi Palace, but he didn’t care that much. He cared more that he could see Jieyu and Second Senior Sister soon after exiting the Holy Road. It had only been around two years, but it felt like a century.
Right then, everyone felt the ground shake. Then a sound rolled over. “Take your holy badge to the end of the Holy Road.”
“The Holy Road is open.” Everyone’s hearts trembled.
Ye Futian looked in the distance and said, “Everyone, let’s go.”
Many people were excited. They flew in the air, going down the Dawn Road.
Stepping out of the city and passing by the wilderness, they discovered that there was fighting everywhere. It was very bloody.
Ye Futian glanced down. Beside him, Mu Zhiqiu said, “Once the Holy Road is open, only those with holy badges can walk to the other end. If not, you can only backtrack. Thus, the fighting now is always the bloodiest.”
Ye Futian understood. It was not only the wilderness. Fights erupted everywhere on the Dawn Road. Only his vast group was peaceful. It was the first time something like this happened on the Holy Road. Before, there’d never been someone like Ye Futian who would open relics with a group. Even after opening the relics, Ye Futian’s group could still snatch their holy badges. If he wanted to enter the Holy Zhi Palace, the holy badges were his capital.
Before, Ning Huang had just wanted to get as many holy badges as possible.
Walking forward, the group finally arrived at the end of the Dawn Road. There was a curtain of light. A group of strong cultivators guarded there. Seeing Ye Futian’s group, they were all shocked. How could there be so many people?
This was a rare sight.
Many people from the other top forces were there too. On their air warship, Bing Yi and Chu Shang stared deeply at Ye Futian and Yu Sheng. Yu Sheng had left a deep impression on them outside Jinxiao City. He was hard to forget.
Nan Hao, Nan Feng and the others of the Nantian House looked at Ye Futian with strange expressions.
Yan Jiu’s eyes were the coldest. He’d received the least on the Holy Road. Though he’d stolen many more holy badges, he had no luck with the relics. The most infuriating thing was that he’d been robbed just as he’d collected 10,000 holy badges and was about to open the relic.
At that time, a solemn and handsome figure walked over, attracting many eyes. Xiao Junyi was here.
He stood quietly to the side. He looked harmless. It was hard to imagine how he truly was.
Other than these top figures, many prides from the Dawn Road also gathered over.
Of course, Ye Futian’s group was the largest. The others couldn’t rival them even when together. After all, the three months had been survival of the fittest. The weaker ones were eliminated in rounds. Only Ye Futian’s group was the most harmonious.
“Where’s Ning Huang? I didn’t see him,” an elder from the Holy Zhi Palace asked. The Holy Road was closed with no authority. Even those in the Holy Zhi Palace didn’t know what happened inside.
Ning Huang was the descendant of Elder Ning. He thought highly of Ning Huang. They’d met before and knew Ning Huang was talented. Thus, he asked. To them, Ning Huang should be the most brilliant of all on the Dawn Road.
As soon as he spoke, everyone’s eyes turned strange. Many subconsciously looked to Ye Futian and Yu Sheng. This confused the strong cultivator of the Holy Zhi Palace.
Had something happened to Ning Huang?
He knew his talent. This shouldn’t happen on the Dawn Road.
“Senior, Ning Huang was killed,” someone said.
The expression of the strong cultivator hardened. He was even more confused. Ning Huang was killed on the Dawn Road?
“Who?” he asked. Instantly, countless eyes focused in one direction.
Two voices rang out at once: Ye Futian and Yu Sheng.
Ye Futian glanced at Yu Sheng. Yu Sheng had dealt the fatal blow, but Ye Futian had been the one battling Ning Huang earlier. He knew that Yu Sheng wanted to take responsibility for this outside Jinxiao City.
“Many people saw that I killed him,” Yu Sheng said indifferently.
The strong cultivators of the Holy Zhi Palace were shocked. The Holy Road had a high death rate. This was their rule too. Once in the Holy Road, anything could happen. It was the same for Ning Huang. Naturally, they couldn’t blame someone just because Ning Huang had died. This would make the Holy Zhi Palace seem unfair.
However, it would be hard to tell Elder Ning that Ning Huang was killed. They knew that Elder Ning thought highly of Ning Huang and wanted him to take his place. It was unimagined how he’d react to this news.
“Everyone’s here. Let’s go.” The man looked away without saying anything!
