Chapter 45


At a certain age, all the disciples in the sect will be sent to leave the peak to carry out their assigned tasks. Jiang Tan was currently at this age.

With his disciple absent, Gu Yan naturally had more time to guide the sect’s disciples. His sword skills were still there together with other knowledge such as weapon refining, alchemy, and array laying. Guiding a few disciples was not a problem for him.


“The defensive array places great importance on balance. If you only strengthen a certain node, you will end up with loopholes in this array instead of increasing its power. It is important to avoid this type of mistake.”


Having his mistake pointed out at a glance, the disciple replied, ‘Understood’. Following this, he started to lay out the array once again according to what the youth said.


This kind of thing was extremely complicated especially since the slightest error can result in a potentially fatal outcome. If there was a person who had studied all types of arrays in depth, even if he did not have any cultivation, there will surely be many sects competing for him. Not to mention, this person also had the same level of understanding in the ways of weapon refining and alchemy.


The more these disciples interacted with the youth in front of them, the more their admiration for him increased.


After instructing the last student today, Gu Yan returned to the Heavenly Peak. Now that it was already night time, it was possible to see the stars in the sky. There was a dark red glow in the sky that seemed to become brighter over time.


He did not know how to foresee the future like those fortune tellers just by looking at the constellations, but Gu Yan knows that the passage to the abyss from the human world was about to be reopened.


In the original plot, he had written that his disciple had entered the abyss at this time. By the time he finally came out, he was already able to lead the entire Demon race.


This part was written very vaguely, even Gu Yan did not know the specific details. However, this time, the two sides may not necessarily come into contact, after all, many parts of the story had already been changed.


On one hand, he did not really want his disciple to come into contact with the demon race like in the original story. On the other hand, there was a spiritual treasure in the abyss that was able to repair one’s soul. In the original story, this item was taken by the protagonist and used by the sealed soul that was in his ring.


Without a body to return to, a remnant soul will soon dissipate. After the incident, Gu Yan gave a soul sealing jar to Jiang Tan and let the other person call forth Ye Yuan’s soul again to seal it in there.  


This would slow down the disintegration process of the remnant soul. If they were able to fix Ye Yuan’s soul in the future using the spiritual artifact, they would be able to reveal the true culprit and prove his disciple’s innocence.


Although this was a little selfish, knowing that the opening of the passageway between the human world and the abyss of the underworld will cause many bad things to happen and thus, many innocent people will die as a result… But Gu Yan still prefers to let the passageway open. In the case of a death without evidence, the only way to let the truth be revealed was to repair Ye Yuan’s soul.


While Gu Yan was still thinking that his disciple might not have too much contact with the demon race, at this time on the other side, things that were happening was the complete opposite of what he thought might happen —


After the other disciples had reached their current location, Jiang Tan started to act on his own. At this time, he was clutching a mass of black matter, his pupils had narrowed into vertical slits, staring coldly at this black mass as he gradually tightened his hold.


Unable to escape from his grasp, the mass of black matter pleaded: “I, I have a way to restore your Master’s cultivation–!”


The hand that was holding it momentarily slackened but the piercing gaze was still fixed on him. The pair of vertical pupils were as cold as ever, the darkness in them was like an abyss that wanted to swallow him whole.


The Taotie beast’s ability to recognize a scent was much more powerful and effective than any cultivator’s spiritual probing tools. Jiang Tan was able to perceive the scent of the person he has always dreamt of torturing to death on this thing.


What the other party had just said was too tempting. It was impossible to restore a person whose cultivation had been crippled because their spiritual root had already been destroyed. Jiang Tan refused to give up as he sifted through all the ancient texts that could be read in the sect. In the end, he never did find a way. But now a glimmer of hope had appeared in front of him.


Vaguely recognizing the other’s race, Jiang Tan continued to grip the other party tightly and said coldly: “State your purpose and your relationship with Li Rong.”


“I can tell you a way to let that person recover his cultivation. In exchange, you have to help me obtain something.” Changing his original purpose, this demon paused for a while before he slightly modified his words and continued.


As a demon who was originally ranked third in terms of power in the entire abyss of the Underworld, Fu Xi had always lived a very arrogant and carefree life. The only time he suffered a downfall was during the battle between the humans and demon race hundreds of years ago, he had nearly died under the blade of an Immortalization Stage cultivator.


Fortunately, his yuan soul had managed to escape but failed to return to the abyss. His yuan soul was also severely damaged. Fu Xi had no choice but to do what he had always despised other demons for doing…


Feeding on people’s negative emotions to survive.


Li Rong was one of his targets. He had been attached to Li Rong for many years and he had a lot more negative emotions than those he had chosen in the past. Fu Xi was naturally happy to just absorb while cultivating, saving the trouble of having to frequently find new replacements.


In the Hidden Realm, he taught Li Rong to destroy the soul and frame another person for his crimes. Inducing the other person to kill the person he had always been dissatisfied with, Fu Xi unsurprisingly he gained a lot of ‘food’ during the process.


Later, he learned that the person who had been used as a scapegoat did not die. Instead, somebody else close to him had paid the price. Fu Xi started to take action at once. For so many years, this demon was already very skilled in human psychology. He knew that at present, that person must be filled with rich negative energy he could absorb.


Unexpectedly … … this was the second time he stumbled for so many years, being captured before he could even close in. This was definitely not a cultivator at the level of Spiritual Silence Realm.[1]


[1] in between the Heart Stabilizing and Nascent Soul Realm


Until he met the pair of vertical pupils and got closer, did he finally feel the overwhelming power of destruction. The demon finally realized just what kind of existence he had provoked.


In an instant, Fu Xi had a new plan in mind. He had realized that no matter how much negative emotions he absorbed, he would never be able to possess his own body just like in the past. However, this person might be able to help him obtain something… that he had always thought would be impossible to obtain.


His yuan soul was nearly damaged once more. Now that he understood the true form of the young man in front of him, the demon Fu Xi who was currently extremely weak quickly added another sentence: “If you kill me in the spur of the moment, you will never be able to change what has happened. There will be no benefit at all.”


Jiang Tan narrowed his eyes before he completely relaxed his grip, and calmly said: “I will not kill you.”


For now.


Both parties have something they wanted from each other, an agreement can be reached and cooperation was possible. Jiang Tan took out a piece of jade pendant from his spacial bag and said: “Enter this piece of jade.”


He had no intention of letting the other person possess his body and neither did he want to be spied on, Jiang Tan laid an array about this jade pendant. A restriction was added such that when the other party was inside, it would not be able to spy on the outside world.


After finishing the task and using the horns of the slain beasts as tokens, Jiang Tan returned to the inn with several disciples from the same sect.


In terms of human age, he was already grown up. However, he had not yet crossed the line to obtain the true strength of a Taotie beast. He was already at the edge and recently, Jiang Tan could clearly and strongly feel that he was about to cross this line.


His hunger for a certain person was also becoming increasingly uncontrollable. He really wanted to obtain…


Night time, according to their agreement, they would first rest in this inn for one night after the completion of their task before returning to the sect the next day.


“Master…” Kissing the youth’s neck. Jiang Tan persistently left one trace after another. The light red marks printed against the youth’s pale neck looked especially gorgeous.

When it comes to age, Zongmen disciples will be assigned tasks that need to go downhill. Jiang Tan is now at this age.

When the apprentice is absent, Gu Yan’s time to lead the Zongmen disciples to the main peak becomes more. The swordsmanship is still in use, and other knowledge reserves, whether it is refining, alchemy, or layout, are still in existence. It is still not a problem to guide the disciples.

“The defensive formation method pays attention to balance. Once a node is strengthened, it will only make this array of loopholes, and it will not enhance the effect. Avoid entering this misunderstanding.”

Being pointed out by mistake, the disciple should ‘yes’ and re-arrange the formation according to what the youth said.

This kind of thing is mysterious and complicated, especially when it is laid out. If there is a person who has studied profoundly in all kinds of formations, even if it is not cultivated, it will certainly be the object of competition for each sect. Not to mention that this person has the same level in refining and alchemy.

The more they are in contact with the young people in front of them, the more amazing these disciples are.

After finishing the final guidance today, Gu Yan will return to the peak of the sky. Now that I have entered the night, I can see the stars and look up, and there is a touch of dark red stars that become more and more obvious over time.

The person who counts the fate of the star is not able to calculate anything, but Gu Yan knows that this is the channel of the abyss of the human world and the meditation domain is about to reopen.

In the original plot, he wrote that his own apprentice entered the Abyss of the Underworld at that time, and when he came out, he was able to lead the entire Mozu.

This section is written in a streamlined manner, and Gu Yan does not know the specific process. But this time, the two sides will not necessarily have such contact again, after all, many plots have changed.

On the one hand, I don’t think that the apprentice is in contact with the Mozu as in the original plot. On the other hand, in the Mozu Abyss, there is a secret treasure that can repair the soul. The original plot is taken by the protagonist and sealed to him. The soul of his seal was used.

If the remnant soul does not return, it will quickly dissipate. After the incident, Gu Yan took a singer and gave him a talk, so that the other party took the soul of Ye Hao again and sealed it in the jade.

This is to slow down the dissipating speed of the remnant soul. If you can get the secret of the leaf scorpion in the future, you will be able to find out the real murderer and still have an innocence of his own apprentice.

Although it is too selfish to know that the channel of the human world and the abyss of the meditation will restart, there will be many bad things, and there will be innocent people who will die… but Gu Yan is still biased to let the channel open, in the case of complete death without proof, only Patching the soul of the leaves to make the truth surface.

Here, Gu Yan is still thinking that his own apprentice may not have too much contact with the Mozu this time. At the moment, on the other side, what is happening opposite to what he thinks is happening –

After several other disciples arrived at the current location, Jiang talk began to act alone. At this time, he kneaded a black mass of material, his eyes had turned into a erect, and he stared fiercely at the black, and gradually tightened the kneading hand.

Struggling with the palm of your hand, this group of black matter snorted: “I, I have a way to make your master rehabilitate -!”

The hand that kneaded it for a moment relaxed, but the pair of erects that stared at it were still cold, thick black, like an abyss.

The ability to recognize the breath is much more powerful and effective than the exploration method used by the monk. Jiang Tan can detect the faintness of the person he wants to torture to death.

The words the other party just said are too tempting. Those who have been abolished can’t re-cultivate, because the spirit has been destroyed, and Jiang can’t find a way to check all the ancient books that can be consulted in Zongmen, but now there is a possibility to appear in front of him.

Vaguely recognizing the race, Jiang Tan still kneaded the other side in his hand, and his voice was cold: “Your purpose, and, say, the relationship between you and the season.”

“I can tell you how to get that person to recover. In exchange, you have to take something for me.” Say the purpose of the change, the magic pauses for a while, then the latter thing is slightly modified. Said it.

As a high-level demon who was second only to the three devils in the abyss of the meditation, Fuxi has been very arrogant. The only time it was planted was that when the Mozu fought against the human monk hundreds of years ago, he died in a dangerous monk.

Fortunately, the soul escaped, but failed to escape to the abyss of the meditation. The soul of the soul was seriously damaged. Fuxi had to do what the demons he had looked down on.

Feeding on people’s negative emotions and maintaining their lives.

Ji Rong is one of his chosen goals. He has been attached to Ji Rong for many years. The negative emotions on the other side are much more than the ones he chose in the past. Fuxi is also happy to learn while cultivating and saving frequent changes. Body.

In the secret world, he taught the method of cutting the soul of the season, and he also taught him how to frame the season, and induced the other party to kill the person who had been dissatisfied. In the process, he did not accidentally harvest a bunch of ‘food’.

Later, I knew that the person who was pulled to be a ghost was not dead. Instead, the close neighbors paid a price for it, and Fuxi was moved. For so many years, this demon has been very skilled in trying to figure out the human heart. He knows that the person must be filled with the energy he can draw.

But I didn’t expect it… This will be the second time he has been planted for so many years. He has been shackled by the other party before he has approached. This is absolutely impossible to be a monk who is only a spiritual silence.

Waiting for the pair of erects on the opposite side, and then feeling the power of destruction and engulfing at close quarters, the devil now finally realizes what kind of existence he is provoked.

In the blink of an eye, there was a new calculation in my heart. Even if he absorbs the negative emotions of people, he can’t recover the days of possessing entities, but the existence of this can help him get the same… What he thought was impossible to get.

The Yuan Soul was almost injured again, knowing what the young man in front of him was. This is a weak period of the devil and quickly added another sentence: “You can only vent the anger when you kill me, can’t change what has happened, this is not for you. Any benefit.”

Ginger talked and narrowed his eyes, completely relaxed and kneaded the other’s hand, calmly said: “I will not kill you.”

not now.

Both parties have something they want to get from the other party, and the agreement can be negotiated. The agreement is a matter of specificty. Jiang talks about taking a jade pendant from the mustard and says: “You go inside this jade.”

Without the idea of ​​letting the other party attach to the body, I also don’t want to be peeped. Jiang talked about adding a ban on this jade pendant, so that the other side could not peep into the outside world while staying inside.

Complete the task, take the corner of the killed monster as a token, and Jiang talks back to an inn that was set up before the disciples of the same door.

He is an adult in terms of his age, but he has not yet crossed the line of strength. Just a line apart, Jiang talks about the recent sensation of being very clear and strong, and he has to cross this boundary at any time.

The thirst for a person is becoming more and more unstoppable, and I really want to get…

At night, according to the previous agreement, they rested in this inn after completing the task, and returned to Zongmen the next day.

“Master respects…” He kissed the neck of the young man under his body. Jiang talked stubbornly and left one trace after another. It was pale and printed on the neck of the young man.
