PBS - Chapter 2236: A Gamble

"Wordless Heavenly Book, the Flourish of the Heavens and Earth!" 

Empress Feiyue collected her thoughts and summoned an ancient book. She inserted a huge amount of her Power of Rules into the book. The pages of the book began to flip rapidly.

Wisps of mystical light came out of the book and formed a watery screen.

The visual on it blinked rapidly until it stopped at a specific scene.

It was a vast valley with a mountain range that resembled a white mist. The mountain range was like an ancient dragon lying across the valley.

Eternal Night Heaven Highness. Ruler Huangyun, Ruler Miexiang, and the others were standing in front of it.

Apart from Eternal Night Heaven Highness, Ruler Huangyun and the rest were emitting a tremendous glow with ancient artifacts hovering around them. They were unleashing terrifying forces at the mountain range.

The spirit of the Orb of the Heavenly Emperor must be sleeping inside the mountain range from the looks of it.


Qin Nan's eyes soon flickered with astonishment.

He discovered that the mountain range had merged with the vast land. The five Rulers of Dao were struggling to overcome its power.

A dark light burst out of Eternal Night Heaven Highness' body, followed by an overwhelming aura. 

Even though Qin Nan and Empress Feiyue were quite far away from the mountain range, they could still sense the Heaven Highness' aura.

Eternal Night Heaven Highness took out a bow and pulled its string. A tremendous dark Power of Rules gathered with every inch the string was pulled back.

The Power of Rules eventually turned into a pitch-black arrow.

Qin Nan was stunned.

He could feel a tremendous pressure through the screen.


The string loosened and fired the arrow. The screen immediately fell into darkness.

Qin Nan lifted his gaze. The rift nearby had darkened too.

The darkness lasted for more than a hundred breaths before it slowly faded away.

Qin Nan immediately looked at the screen and saw the mountain range was now black with a huge pit over a hundred zhang long and a few dozen zhang wide at its center. 

The mountain range's color also darkened gradually. Eternal Night Heaven Highness' Power of Rules was corrupting the mountain range like the venom of a snake.

"A Heaven Highness does have extraordinary capabilities!" Qin Nan exclaimed.

Meanwhile, a sacred light appeared deep inside the mountain and drove the darkness away in no time.

The sacred light soon dissipated.


Qin Nan's eyes flickered with astonishment.

He did not expect Eternal Night Heaven Highness' attack had only left a pit on the mountain range.

The mountain range was incredibly huge. Even if Eternal Night Heaven Highness were to attack continuously, it would take him at least a year just to destroy the mountain range.

"This mountain range is most likely formed by the Thirty-Second Small Immortal Realm's origin force."

"Besides, the world we are currently in is constructed by the spirit of the Orb of the Heavenly Emperor, thus it has gathered the strongest forces and Immortal Intent of this world in the mountain range."

"It's extremely difficult for anyone to forcibly destroy the mountain range. It's going to take a long time."

Empress Feiyue said, "The Ancient Taboo is well aware of it, hence why it's willing to show us the Orb of the Heavenly Emperor."

Qin Nan frowned.

Things were more complicated than he expected.

He was unable to determine whether the Trio Warriors had reincarnated through Rulers of Dao, or their reincarnations were hiding at the same place where the spirit of the Orb of the Heavenly Emperor was sleeping at.

It was quite easy to find out the truth.

He just had to go closer to Ruler Huangyun and the others and observe the reaction of the three ancient swords.

However, Eternal Night Heaven Highness was with them!

Eternal Night Heaven Highness would surely attack him once he showed himself.

Most importantly, there was only a month left until Cang's reincarnation. They were not able to leave without destroying or refining the spirit of the orb.

They were currently in a pinch.

"What should we do now?" Qin Nan was having a headache.

He had to think of a perfect plan.

"Qin Nan, the situation isn't as complicated as you think," Empress Feiyue said, as if she was able to read Qin Nan's mind.

"Eternal Night Heaven Highness, Ruler Huangyun, and the others are trying their best to break through the mountain range and target Cang's reincarnation."

"Even if they aren't interested in Cang's reincarnation, they wouldn't know what's going to happen if they aren't able to retrieve the spirit of the orb prior to Cang's reincarnation."

"Therefore, we have the same goal as them."

Qin Nan nodded. Empress Feiyue added, "If I'm right, Eternal Night Heaven Highness and Ruler Huangyun is going to call all the Rulers of Dao here to break through the mountain range."

"However, the Ancient Taboo will have predicted it too. Judging from how sturdy the mountain range is, even if they were able to gather all the Rulers of Dao, they wouldn't be able to break through it in just a month."

"That being said, we currently have an advantage. We have the three ancient swords."

Qin Nan was stunned.

What difference were the three ancient swords going to make?

"I believe the Trio Warriors' reincarnations aren't among Ruler Huangyun and his men. They are most likely with the spirit of the Orb of the Heavenly Emperor. Perhaps we can take a gamble," Empress Feiyue said.

"How?" Qin Nan was even more confused.

"Hand me the three ancient swords. You will know what the gamble is soon," Empress Feiyue did not explain everything in detail.

"Hand them to you? Are you going to meet them alone? But..."

Qin Nan paused in the middle of his sentence.

Judging from the circumstances, their only option was to let Empress Feiyue meet the Rulers of Dao alone.

If he showed himself, Eternal Night Heaven Highness and the others were surely going to leave the spirit aside and target him first.

It would only be worse once the rest of the Rulers of Dao had gathered here. He would have no chance of escaping.

"Copper mirror, I'll leave it to you then!"

Qin Nan took a deep breath and handed the three ancient swords over. He said, "You must be careful. You should leave at once if anything goes wrong."

Empress Feiyue took over the ancient swords. She unleashed the power of the Wordless Heavenly Book to encapsulate Qin Nan and conceal his presence. 

She did not respond to Qin Nan's warning. She had always been like this. Many people had warned her to leave if the situation became dangerous in the past.

However, she never took their advice.

She soon vanished into thin air.

However, a word echoed in Qin Nan's ears after some time.

"Got it."
