Chapter 948: Seizing The Inheritance?
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Mo Xie moved towards the depths of the cavern. He found a statue standing inside, resembling the indestructible body from before. The statue was extremely large and had another entrance to a smaller cave on its body, with bright light shining from within.
Behind Mo Xie, several geniuses followed. But all of them halted when they saw the statue, and they turned their attention onto Mo Xie.
Mo Xie’s silhouette flickered, directly moving towards the interior of the golden-colored statue.
“This must be that terrifying ancient emperor character. And there might even be more good fortune.” The eyes of everyone turned sharp as they hurried after Mo Xie. Bone Demon’s speed was extremely fast, and he dashed ahead of them with the intention to seize all the possible treasures inside.
However, Mo Xie’s eyes flashed and he coldly looked at Bone Demon who brushed past by him. A surge of vast and ponderous might radiated out as dark golden rays of light shot from his eyes.
“Get the fuck back here,” Mo Xie coldly snorted, blasting out with his palm. Bone Demon abruptly turned to shoot out a palm strike in response. His arm extended, containing startling capabilities within.
But the Mo Xie at this moment was simply too terrifying. His entire body shone with a dark, golden luster, and the might contained within his palm attack was enough to cause his opponents to grovel at his feet. His aura soared upwards to its limits, and following an explosive boom, the two of them collided together. In just an instant, Bone Demon screamed miserably as the arm that he’d earlier extended exploded into pieces. After which, the other geniuses only saw Bone Demon being flung through the air as fresh blood spurted outwards uncontrollably.
“Mo Xie’s aura is simply too terrifying now. Given how fearsome his current physique, as well as his overwhelming battle intent, even Bone Demon couldn’t stand up to a single strike, and he’s ranked in the top ten.”
The hearts of everyone shook. Their footsteps involuntarily halted, not daring to walk ahead of Mo Xie.
Mo Xie’s eyes flashed as he coldly spoke to Bone Demon, “You’re overestimating your own capabilities.”
As he spoke, he turned his glance towards the others, with a sneering smile on his face. Only then did he continue moving forward and entered the cave of the golden statue, heading deep within. As for the other geniuses, they were now filled with trepidation, and could only follow slowly from behind, not daring to get too close to Mo Xie.
Even Xuan Yang and Xiao Lengyue held deep traces of fear in their eyes. Before this, Mo Xie was already an extremely terrifying individual with cruel methods, and could be ruthless to himself and to others. Now that he’d obtained the inheritance of the Brahma Heavenly Emperor, and had also established a supreme physique, he was simply unexcelled in this world. Who could even obstruct him?
Mo Xie stepped into the space within the cave. In here, bright light illuminated the area as powerful runes in the surroundings glowed resplendently. It was as though each and every rune possessed a supreme power, each of them manifesting the bodies of a stellar martial cultivator in various states of his life.
Mo Xie swept his glance over, paying no attention the bodies which he considered as useless and continued walking deeper inside. When he reached the end, he only saw a row of words. ‘In order to establish a Saint-grade Immortal Foundation, one first has to establish a supreme indestructible body.’
“Saint-grade Immortal Foundation.” Mo Xie’s eyes erupted with a dazzling light. A Saint-grade Immortal Foundation! There were truly people who had established this supreme, unparalleled immortal foundation before?
Could it be that the inheritance this ancient emperor left behind was in order to pave the way to establish a Saint-grade Immortal Foundation?!
A smile flashed in Mo Xie’s eyes. This inheritance was much more powerful than he had ever imagined.
Inclining his head, Mo Xie stared at the area as a brilliant luster flickered in his dark, golden eyes.
At the same time outside, Qin Wentian and the others had yet to enter that place.
Qin Wentian was calmly sitting in the air, with his aura completely retracted, appearing exceptionally quiet. The surface of his body circulated with a pure-white flame, his perception completely focused within his body. He could clearly sense the transformation occurring endlessly within his body, and every part of it was linked by a unique runic network, gradually converging into one. A faint trace of extraordinary qi gushed forth from him.
However, aside from those next to Qin Wentian, none of the other geniuses cared. All of them were rushing ahead, wanting to see what good fortune awaited them. Only Qing`er and Qin Wentian’s companions stayed behind.
Just like before, Qing`er remained by Qin Wentian’s side to protect him. Jun Mengchen and the others were there as well. Right now, the transformation within Jun Mengchen’s body was already complete, and he felt extremely relieved to discover his senior brother was also undergoing a transformation. His eyes couldn’t help but flash with excitement. He didn’t feel the slightest bit depressed that he’d failed to establish the indestructible physique of that golden body.
Because his body was undergoing another transformation that didn’t lose out in remarkability. Qin Wentian seemed to be undergoing the same process he did.
Establishing a physique did not mean that everyone had to take on a particular indestructible physique. For those who possessed tremendous potential—as well as a variety of rare factors—there was the possibility that one could awaken and establish their own unique physiques.
The energy in the golden body had more than a single effect. Other than establishing a physique, it could also act as a catalyst. “Nanfeng, you can go ahead first if you want to. We’ll stay here for a while longer to guard Senior Brother,” Jun Mengchen offered.
Nanfeng Yunxi looked at Jun Mengchen as she replied, “Do you think Mo Xie will allow me to seize his inheritance?”
Jun Mengchen stared, then nodded his head, “With his tyrannical character, there’s probably no way he would allow anyone to fight over the inheritance with him.”
Although Nanfeng Yunxi was powerful, she was still weaker than Mo Xie.
“In addition, we are all in an alliance, the people of the Qin Sect,” Nanfeng Yunxi replied, not looking at Jun Mengchen. However, Jun Mengchen watched her as a smile played on his lips. “That’s right, we are all people of the Qin Sect. After Senior Brother ends his cultivation, we will go and seize the inheritance from that fellow Mo Xie. How regrettable that Senior Brother Qin’s cultivation level is lower than his. If they were both at the ninth-level of the Celestial Phenomenon Realm, he would never lose out to Mo Xie.”
Nanfeng Yunxi didn’t respond. Who knows who would be stronger? But there was no doubt that the Mo Xie at this moment was simply too terrifying. His strength hadn’t simply advanced by a little, but was now much stronger than compared to the past.
Hua Taixu was also watching Qin Wentian. This fellow seemed too calm, his experience seemed to be different from the others. But seeing Qin Wentian in such a tranquil state, Hua Taixu only felt that Qin Wentian was such a complex character that he was unfathomable. For this trip, although Hua Taixu hadn’t gained a lot, he didn’t really mind. Sometimes, good fortune was destined not to belong to him. It was pointless to want to seize it all. But if the good fortune was suitable for him, he would definitely do his best to acquire it.
When the last circulation of light flowed around Qin Wentian, his aura completely disappeared, as though nothing had happened. He then opened his eyes and calmly regarded his surroundings. When he saw Qing`er standing before him protectively, as well as his other companions beside him, his heart filled with waves of warmth as a gentle smile appeared in his eyes.
“Let’s go,” said Qin Wentian. When everyone saw the smile in Qin Wentian’s eyes, they too felt at ease in their hearts. His smile was capable of causing people to feel at peace.
Hua Taixu’s eyes gleamed—Qin Wentian would always gather a group of close friends no matter where he went. This was something he did unconsciously and so naturally, as though he’d been born with charisma and charm. However, he was never once overbearing, and he had a special characteristic that made people feel safe around him. No matter how intense the storms might be, he gave others the feeling that he would still be able to resolve it.
No one else had noticed this point, but the observant Hua Taixu discovered it. Even the one ranked third in the Immortal Ascension Rankings, the cold and arrogant Nanfeng Yunxi had subtly changed. She was actually willing to play a supporting role, allowing Qin Wentian to take the lead.
Their group entered the depths of the cavern. Soon after, they saw the other geniuses as well as the gigantic golden statue ahead. And when the others noticed them entering, strange expressions appeared on many of their faces.
Before Mo Xie had arrived, Qin Wentian’s performance was extremely outstanding. Sadly, after Mo Xie appeared, Qin Wentian’s impressiveness had faded away in an instant. But even so, when Qin Wentian, Princess Qing`er, and Nanfeng Yunxi had joined forces, it was truly startling to see that they could actually injure Mo Xie.
Right now, this group of people were probably the only ones that had enough power to contend against Mo Xie. The alliances of the other geniuses had long crumbled apart.
Qin Wentian and his companions swiftly entered the cave inside the golden statue. The moment they entered, they saw the bodies formed from the powerful runes, Qin Wentian couldn’t help but feel that they contained some sort of special and deeper meaning. Mo Xie stood in front of them, currently contemplating something. Where was the inheritance located exactly?
At this moment, Mo Xie turned and stared at Qin Wentian and his companions. His dark, golden eyes gleamed sharply, yet despite his menacing stare, Qin Wentian calmly walked forward and stood beside him. He read the row of words left behind by that ancient emperor.
“Don’t you possess the slightest bit of fear towards me?” Mo Xie stared at Qin Wentian as he emotionlessly asked.
“What qualifications do you have to cause me to feel fear?” Qin Wentian replied. Upon seeing the words, a bright light shone in his eyes. Was establishing a supreme physique merely the first step to pave the road for obtaining a Saint-grade Immortal Foundation?
“Do Saint-grade Immortal Foundations truly exist,? We’ve only ever heard of them in the legends.” Nanfeng Yunxi’s eyes flashed with a strange glow.
Could it be that the existence who stood equally against the Brahma Heavenly Emperor was someone that possessed the legendary Saint-grade Immortal Foundation? Was he really such an unparalleled and supreme individual?
Such a person would truly be too terrifying. No wonder he could stand equally against the Brahma Heavenly Emperor.
“Your strength is merely adequate, but you have a truly brazen personality.” A smile filled with cold disdain appeared on Mo Xie’s lips. His dark, golden eyes were fearsomely shrewd, and he stared icily at Qin Wentian.
“Oh? I don’t think your strength is particularly impressive, either.” Qin Wentian glanced at Mo Xie before turning around and walking back to the entrance. When at the entrance, he paid close attention to the statue-like bodies that the powerful runes manifested. Was the secret of establishing a Saint-grade Immortal Foundation hidden within them?
“Arrogant.” Mo Xie turned and stood at the center of the cave. His body radiated a vast and substantial might, causing rumbling sounds to echo unceasingly. The statues within the cave seemed to completely light up in an instant. From Mo Xie’s body, a fearsome dark light flowed. He stretched out his hand, manifesting a terrifying vortex as he closed his eyes in concentration. It felt as though he planned to use the inheritance of the Brahma Heavenly Emperor to find and seize this inheritance.
Qin Wentian didn’t stop him or use any methods himself. He simply stood there silently. Although he didn’t establish the indestructible physique of the ancient emperor, his heart was still filled with reverence for such a character. Since these statue-like bodies were placed here, they must surely hold some secret to them.. He had to use his heart and try to comprehend them!
“Qin Wentian doesn’t seem to have given up yet. It’s like he’s still planning to contend against Mo Xie to seize this inheritance. But as long as Mo Xie is here, can he even succeed?” The various geniuses all mused quietly when they saw this scene. Many people believed that Mo Xie practically had this inheritance in the bag. Even if there was somebody who could seize it away, with Mo Xie’s current power, why would he spare them?
Who could even seize the inheritance in Mo Xie’s presence?
