Building The Ultimate Fantasy - Chapter 263
There was dead silence in the dilapidated bodhisattva temple.
With a vacant look, Nie Changqing and Mo Tianyu stared at the man who slowly came through the Wall of Air.
“Young Master Lu!”
Nie Changqing and Mo Tianyu shouted simultaneously. They were surprised that Lu Fan really came to the bodhisattva temple.
It was his real body rather than a duplicate!
Young Master…left Beiluo Lake Island and came here!
How rare it was!
Wearing white clothes, Lu Fan sat straight in the Thousand Blades Chair. He shot a glance at Nie Changqing and Mo Tianyu, nodded slightly, and remained expressionless.
Terrifying waves of energy were roaring and rolling outside of the temple.
Darkness reigned as if the entire sky was covered by the giant hand.
“You should either go back to our world or stay here quietly. Don’t go out of this bodhisattva temple,” Lu Fan said.
Nie Changqing nodded. He knew that they were not capable enough to get involved in the battle outside.
Lu Fan turned to Mo Tianyu and said, “Don’t tell the fortune that you’re not supposed to tell…”
Mo Tianyu squeezed an awkward smile in an instant.
Just as he expected, his attempt somehow was detected by the mysterious Young Master Lu.
Mo Tianyu didn’t dare to tell Lu Fan’s fortune. He still vividly remembered how he was planted in the ground like a blade of grass.
As for Ding Jiudeng who was also in the bodhisattva temple…
Lu Fan took a brief look at him and didn’t talk. He controlled the Thousand Blades Chair and left the bodhisattva temple.
The wind was whistling outside of the bodhisattva temple. The snowstorm wrapped the field in murky darkness.
Sitting in the wheelchair, Lu Fan’s figure gradually disappeared in the snow.
Outside of the bodhisattva temple.
The sky was torn apart with a massive slash.
The Empress was sucked into the gash, her red robes billowing in the wind.
After she was drawn into the sky…
Du Longyang, Master Yuanshang, Tianxu, and Juedao all felt their hair rise on end when they heard a shrill cry of the Empress coming from the slash.
They struck at the same time without any hesitation.
They planned to rush in through the opening and change their fate. They didn’t want to be anyone’s pawn anymore.
The Empress successfully went through the calamities and ascended to the Immortal Realm.
They wanted to use this opportunity to investigate the truth about the Immortal Realm!
Why did the Empress screech so stridently?
The gigantic hand dashed against the full-on attack from four master cultivators. The frightening shock waves spread around.
Even the clouds seemed to be blasted away.
Du Longyang bellowed in anger. The spear released a brilliant golden radiance like the scorching sun.
Lu Fan went out of the bodhisattva temple.
The gust blew against him and made his clothes cling to his body.
Lu Fan raised his head and watched the battle above.
The four master cultivators appeared to be hindered by this giant hand.
Lines bounced in Lu Fan’s eyes. He realized that the hand contained a scary amount of strength from the Origin.
Du Longyang and the other three couldn’t break the barrier no matter how hard they tried.
It was exceedingly difficult for them to ascend to the Immortal Realm.
It looked that the Immortal Realm was unquestionably a lie. However, it also raised the question—what kind of a place is the Immortal Realm?
Lu Fan was intrigued.
Therefore, Lu Fan raised his hand, put it on the arm of the Thousand Blades Chair, and gently plucked forward.
The Phoenix Feather Sword immediately darted across the void toward the sky.
With a resounding crow, the flaming phoenix spread its wings that looked like two sharp burning blades.
The phoenix cracked against the giant hand!
Du Longyang’s eyes brightened up the moment he heard the resonant crow of the phoenix.
“Thank you, Young Master Lu!” Du Longyang said with a smile.
Like a sharp sword, a piece of phoenix feather slashed the weakest point of the hand that was blotting out the sky. A deep gash appeared on the hand.
The four master cultivators were not ordinary nobodies. They seized the opportunity and fired on the hand together.
The energy coalesced at the center of the palm and then exploded. The opening on the sky widened.
Young Master Tianxu usually enjoyed bickering with people. However, he charged at the slash on the sky without hesitation the moment he saw Lu Fan.
Despite all of the arrogant speech, Young Master Tianxu was terrified of meeting Lu Fan.
Lu Fan was so powerful and frightening that he could possess Young Master Tianxu’s body without him knowing.
It meant that Lu Fan could kill Young Master Tianxu unnoticed.
This idea became a nightmare for Young Master Tianxu.
How could he not dread about being possessed for no reason at all?
He was only boasting and inciting arguments to build up his courage.
In fact, he would outrun anyone the moment he meets Lu Fan again for real.
The palm couldn’t continue to hold out against Du Longyang and the others after being slashed open.
Du Longyang and the others all went past the palm through the opening.
The palm kept falling down with its mighty force.
Even the snowflakes flying in the air were trembling.
The bodhisattva temple almost blew up into pieces under the pressure of the hand.
However, Lu Fan snapped his fingers and sent out a wave. Surprisingly, the ramshackled bodhisattva temple became as solid as a rock.
With a massive explosion…
The giant hand fell down and razed the site to the ground.
The high mountain that stretched for miles was flattened. The shabby bodhisattva temple was the only thing left standing in the middle of the level ground.
The Thousand Blades Chair carried Lu Fan’s body and floated up unhurriedly.
Du Longyang took the lead and arrived at the slit in the sky that was gradually healing. He held the spear in one hand and rushed through it with resolution and determination to change his fate.
Master Yuanshang and Juedao of the Supreme Knife School also followed him behind.
Young Master Tianxu, on the other hand, hesitated in front of the opening.
The wind blew the snow.
Sitting in the Thousand Blades Chair, Lu Fan glided toward Young Master Tianxu from behind.
Young Master Tianxu turned his head. His pale face became even ghastlier upon seeing Lu Fan. He scuttled through the slit without dawdling any longer.
Lu Fan didn’t know what to say.
Was he really so scary?
His real body should have the appearance of a charming and dapper young man.
He was supposed to be a cultured and refined gentleman.
What was there to be scared of?
Lu Fan started to assess the slit only just now.
Allegedly, the Immortal Realm was behind this opening. This was how people achieve Immortal Ascension.
“What a strong presence of the Origin…”
“Could this so-called Immortal Realm be the world of Origin?”
Lu Fan had a strange expression on his face.
Nevertheless, it was unlikely to be the world of Origin because Lu Fan had met Du Longyang and the others in the world of Origin before. Apparently, they knew how to enter the real world of Origin.
Lu Fan’s eyebrows knitted together. He pondered outside of the slit for a long time, yet still couldn’t make a decision.
Eventually, he controlled the Thousand Blades Chair and floated toward the slit.
All of a sudden…
The moment Lu Fan moved through the opening.
A wave of a powerful Spiritual Sense surged at him.
“You are the Lord of the Plane of another world. Do you really want to intervene?”
Lu Fan could only see an endless expanse of whiteness.
A black shadow stood still in the whiteness and spoke in an ethereal voice.
“What happened to me today could happen to you some other time…” The black shadow continued to talk.
He seemed intent on stopping Lu Fan from going forward.
Lu Fan smiled and said, “No, we’re not the same.”
The Spiritual Sense flickered, and everything in front of him disappeared as if the scene was torn apart.
Lu Fan sat in the Thousand Blades Chair and dashed through the slit.
It sounded like a pebble being tossed into the water.
Lu Fan could see clearly again.
Yet he realized that he was sitting in the wheelchair and floating on the mirror-like surface of a body of water.
Lu Fan lowered his head and could see his reflection on the surface of the lake.
“Is this the Immortal Realm?”
Lu Fan felt like his intelligence was insulted.
In the distance.
Du Longyang held the spear and stood still on the water. He looked around vacantly.
He felt a sense of loss.
Young Master Tianxu was the same.
Master Yuanshang and Ye Shoudao stood in silence as well. Their eyes were filled with disappointment.
Even though they had been shouting how badly they wanted to slay the Immortals, they were still looking forward to seeing the Immortal Realm. They felt like their hopes were shattered now that they actually stepped into the Immortal Realm.
All of a sudden.
Young Master Tianxu’s ashen face twitched as he asked, “Where is Ni Chunqiu, the Empress?”
Du Longyang and the other people became solemn. Indeed, they didn’t see any trace of the Empress in this world of lake.
The Empress ascended first yet vanished into thin air.
It unnerved Du Longyang and the others.
However, Lu Fan’s eyes sparkled as he stared at the lake.
“The water in the lake…doesn’t seem to be water!” Lu Fan said.
He raised his hand and made a pinching motion.
A drop of water immediately flew into Lu Fan’s palm and then quickly evaporated.
“Power of the Origin.”
Lu Fan’s eyes glistened strangely.
The liquified Power of the Origin?
Lu Fan now understood what the so-called Power of the Origin was.
It was a power that came from the Origin of the world…
And a type of treasure generated by nature.
It could not only improve the person’s strength but also aid the cultivation process and help the cultivator understand the great Dao.
Right now, this entire lake was made of the Power of the Origin!
This was quite shocking.
How long would this take?
Was the Power of the Origin precious?
Of course. Lu Fan had a strong urge to move the whole Lake of Origin…
And to swap Beiluo Lake for this Lake of Origin.
All of a sudden.
They heard the sound of chains.
Everyone was startled.
They all raced at full speed to the depth of the lake that was enveloped in thick fog.
Walking on the lake was not a big deal for master cultivators in the Soul Transformation Realm.
Lu Fan was ruminating about how to take the water in the Lake of Origin away with him.
This thing was useless here. Lu Fan might as well take it back to Wuhuang Continent and use it to train cultivators.
However, after thinking for quite some time, Lu Fan didn’t figure out a way. So instead, he decided not to think about it too much for now and rolled the wheelchair across the surface of the lake into the fog.
All of a sudden.
Lu Fan stopped for a moment.
He raised his head and looked into the distance. An antiquated black iron ship slowly sailed toward them from the depth of the Lake of Origin.
Du Longyang, Young Master Tianxu, and the others stared at the black iron ship vigilantly.
They realized that the black iron ship was also dragging something enormous behind.
Lu Fan focused his eyes and recognized that the thing the black iron ship was hauling was the Origin Lu Fan saw in the world of Origin in the past.
The massive Origin looked like a miniature star.
It floated on the lake and was dragged by the black iron ship.
They could see shadows of people on the black iron ship.
A touch of red flashed on the black iron ship. It was obvious that the Empress was on the black iron ship.
Du Longyang exchanged a look with the others.
They were all stunned. They initially thought that they would encounter the mythical “Immortals” once they charged into the Immortal Realm. They were even prepared to die in the battle. However…
The Immortals didn’t show up. All they saw was a series of peculiar phenomenons.
“Get on the ship! Ni Chunqiu is on the ship!” Du Longyang said.
He stepped on the lake and leaped onto the black iron ship. The surface of the lake blew up.
Master Yuanshang, Young Master Tianxu, and Ye Shoudao also jumped on the ship.
They became stiff as soon as they got on the ship.
There were several people sitting leg-crossed on the deck of the ship.
“This is…the ancestor of Dongyi from a thousand years ago.”
“This is the first Martial Sovereign of Wudi City!”
“This is the Buddha from Kufo Temple!”
Du Longyang and the others were dumbstruck. All of these lifeless people sitting on the black iron ship were the legends who went through calamities and ascended to the Immortal Realm.
Yet now, these legends all became mummified, sitting on the black iron ship and floating in the boundless Lake of Origin.
Immortal Ascension was nothing but a cruel joke.
Eyes bloodshot, Du Longyang stared at the once-venerable Martial Sovereign of Wudi City.
He didn’t know what these people went through.
Lu Fan also stepped aboard at a leisurely pace. His eyebrows arched when he saw the people sitting on the deck.
Each one of these people was on a higher cultivation level than Du Longyang.
However, although their bodies were mummified, their souls and Spirit Qi had disappeared completely…
As if they were sucked dry.
Lu Fan looked at the huge Origin behind the black iron ship.
The star-like Origin seemed unusual to Lu Fan.
He remembered the giant eye in the Origin he encountered when he first went into the world of Origin.
These two must be connected somehow.
Du Longyang and the others got together and walked into the black iron ship.
They finally found the Empress in the back of the ship.
Nonetheless, everyone felt a chill down the spine the moment they saw the Empress.
Ascending to the Immortal Realm was such a lie.
The Empress was kneeling in the back of the ship with shackles restraining her body.
She was facing the giant Origin behind the ship.
Chains shot out of the star-like Origin and pierced through the Empress’s body. Blood was dripping from her wound onto the chains, which then vibrated and absorbed the blood.
Along with the cracking sound of the chains…
Ni Chunqiu, the Empress, moaned in agony.
Above her head.
Numerous chains tied up her transformed Nascent Soul and were pulling the transformed nascent soul out of her body.
The Empress’s strength and Spirit Qi burst out along the chains.
“Immortal Ascension… Immortal Ascension…”
Her phoenix coronet fell on the ground and broke into pieces.
“I cultivated studiously to go through calamities and ascend to heaven, yet only became someone else’s meal…” The Empress’s lips were stained by the blood streaming out of her mouth.
She forced a bitter and dreadful smile.
She more or less believed the wonderful dream of Immortal Ascension when she was ascending to the sky. However, her hopes were crushed straight away.
Horrifying chains shot out of the Origin, penetrated her body, and drew the energy out of her body.
All the power and strength she cultivated in these years were taken away without mercy.
In the distance…
Du Longyang and the others were thunderstruck with terror.
None of them actually wanted to believe that the Immortal Ascension was only a lie. After all, Immortal Ascension was their shared dream.
Still and all, the dream was now shattered so cruelly.
Du Longyang grasped the spear in his hand and roared in fury.
He stepped forward and hurled the spear immediately.
It was aimed directly at the giant Origin.
Chains flew out of the Origin.
The spear was bounced back.
Du Longyang stamped on the deck and wanted to dodge the oncoming chains.
Nonetheless, something shocking happened.
Master Yuanshang appeared behind Du Longyang and punched his shoulder ruthlessly.
Coughing blood, Du Longyang couldn’t run away and was pierced by the chains.
Du Longyang kneeled down on the ground in disbelief.
The Origin released a terrifying sucking power.
Not only Du Longyang…
But also Master Yuanshang charged at Young Master Tianxu and Ye Shoudao at the same time.
Astonished, they were also transfixed by the chains coming from the Origin.
The Origin drew up their power.
The change of events was beyond anyone’s imagination.
Du Longyang’s eyes were bloodshot. He stared at Yuanshang in disbelief.
He had his guard up around Tianxu and Ye Shoudao, yet the idea never occurred to him that…
The noble and esteemed Master Yuanshang was the mole for the Immortals.
In the distance.
The Empress laughed even harder.
They schemed against the Immortals.
They planned to slay the Immortals. But they were still only pawns on the Immortals’ chessboard.
Master Yuanshang was the person who initiated the Immortal Slaying Plan.
Yet he was an agent for the Immortals.
Du Longyang and the others still followed Master Yuanshang like a bunch of fools.
Bullsh*t Immortal Slaying Plan.
It crashed instantly.
Master Yuanshang put his palms together with a peaceful and compassionate smile on his face.
He slowly turned around…
And looked at the other side of the black iron ship.
There, Lu Fan in the Thousand Blades Chair was Master Yuanshang’s last target.
He used all possible means to get Lu Fan involved in the Immortal Slaying Plan.
Needless to say, he wouldn’t let Lu Fan go now.
