EIF - Book 04 Chapter 117: Great Light Sovereign Deity and Ba

Gu Hai and Bing Ji hurried on their way. With the Mo token, they only needed an immortal crane carriage. They did not even need to show their faces to gain unobstructed passage.

However, they could not ride on flying ships. After all, the zombies were extremely sensitive to flying ships.

The two rode on an immortal crane carriage all the way, not running into any obstructions for the better part of a month.

The immortal crane carriage was carrying the two through a forest on this particular day.

At this moment, the Great Light Sovereign Deity was staring at the distant immortal crane carriage from a distant mountain summit.

“During these days, the Yuan Nation had sent information to the various cities to find Bing Ji and snatch the ice mountain. I thought that Gu Hai was already dead; he is really hard to kill.” The Great Light Sovereign Deity stared coldly at that immortal crane carriage.

Not long ago, the Great Light Sovereign Deity had even given up on exploring the Divine Palace so that he could bring about Gu Hai’s death in the chaos.

Despite the Great Light Sovereign Deity’s careful plans, he had failed to anticipate Gu Ha’s survival. 

Right now, Gu Hai rode an immortal crane carriage with Bing Ji, traveling openly.

It had already been several days, and everyone was going mad searching for them. Yet, the two were traveling around unobstructed, utterly unobstructed.

This is too bizarre. Are those pursuers blind?

Just two days ago, Archduke Xi Kang, the Bat Ancestor, and the Chang Clan experts stood on a city gate tower, listening with frustration to the information they collected. They scolded their subordinates in anger for being incapable. To think that they could not even find Bing Ji. Yet, at that very moment, Gu Hai and Bing Ji’s immortal crane carriage smoothly passed by under them—less than ten meters away. A bunch of blind fools!

The Great Light Sovereign Deity felt depressed.

“I cannot leave this danger to grow further. Gu Hai? Humph!” Rage flashed in the Great Light Sovereign Deity’s eyes.

------

Far away in an immortal crane carriage:

“Your Majesty, was what you told Mo Yike true? That even with the five million zombies, they still cannot compare to the Qian Nation?” Bing Ji frowned.

Gu Hai sat at the side and shook his head while smiling. “The Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty’s treasures were there for so long already. The Myriad Age Daoist Sect knew, but they did nothing. The Solar Divine Palace probably knew something as well. Did the Supreme Ascendant ever think about coming for the treasures before?”

We are Hosted Nov3l, find us on g00gle.

Bing Ji frowned slightly.

“The Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty shook the world in the past. It is impossible that the three heavenly dynasties and three holy lands were not tempted. However, no one came. Why?” Gu Hai said.

“Perhaps…” 

“It’s not worth it if one can’t get it; it’s not worth thinking about if one does not want it. Even the three heavenly dynasties and three holy lands felt some misgivings, yet the Yuan Nation obtained it so easily? I once heard Waner say that the negative karma is too great, and the Myriad Age Daoist Sect does not want to get involved. Given that the heavenly dynasties and holy lands do not dare to get involved, can the Yuan Nation bear the consequences?” Gu Hai asked.

“Right.” Bing Ji nodded.

Gu Hai was about to add more when he suddenly raised his eyebrows.

“Stop!” Gu Hai suddenly called out.

The immortal crane carriage immediately stopped.

Bing Ji’s face sank as she rushed out of the immortal crane carriage.

Whoosh!

The two stepped out of the immortal crane carriage and saw a black-robed Great Light Sovereign Deity in the distance.

“Great Light Sovereign Deity?” Bing Ji’s eyes turned cold.

However, the Great Light Sovereign Deity ignored Bing Ji, merely looked coldly at Gu Hai from a distance.

Gu Hai frowned at the Great Light Sovereign Deity.

The current environment was extremely isolated and quiet. There was no one else in the vicinity, only the three of them looking at one another.

“Gu Hai? How excellent! To think that you managed to survive that ice mountain. You are really hardy!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said coldly across the distance.

“It is all thanks to Great Light Sovereign Deity for granting me that,” Gu Hai said with a faint smile.

Gu Hai looked at the Great Light Sovereign Deity equally hostilely.

“Grant? Ha!” The Great Light Sovereign Deity appeared even more depressed.

Then, he turned his head to look at Bing Ji.

“Bing Ji? To think that you did that for this short-lived fellow…” The Great Light Sovereign Deity coldly eyed Bing Ji.

Clearly, he knew about Bing Ji’s coital cultivation technique but blamed her for being nosy and saving Gu Hai.

“You don’t have to bother about my matters,” Bing Ji said coldly.

“Humph!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity snorted coldly.

“What’s wrong? Great Light Sovereign Deity, are you thinking of personally dealing with me?” Gu Hai raised his guard as his eyes narrowed.

The Great Light Sovereign Deity stared at Gu Hai and said, “I really wish to.”

“Oh?” Gu Hai said coldly.

“However, I will not take personal action. Gu Hai, let’s see how long you can survive. This place is not far from the previous city, right?” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said with a cold smile.

“Huh?” Gu Hai narrowed his eyes.

“Not long ago, I managed to obtain a holy Dao scripture. Speaking of which, it is thanks to you. Let’s see what scripture that holy Dao scripture is. Hahahaha!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity suddenly laughed.

He is just looking at the holy Dao scripture and not attacking Gu Hai?

“Great Light Sovereign Deity, how dare you?!” Bing Ji’s expression suddenly changed.

“I’m just taking a look at the holy Dao scripture, not dealing with Gu Hai. What is there not to dare to do? Hahahahaha!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity guffawed.

“Your Majesty, we need to leave quickly. The Great Light Sovereign Deity wants to lure over the Bat Ancestor and the others.” Bing Ji’s expression changed.

Far away, the Great Light Sovereign Deity snorted coldly. Then, he extended his hand, taking out that holy Dao scripture.

Whoosh!

Suddenly, the Great Light Sovereign Deity opened the holy Dao scripture with a sweeping motion, making it hover in the air.

Boom!

The instant the holy Dao scripture opened, vast snow-like noble spirit spread out in all directions with the holy Dao scripture as the center.

Rumble…!

Vast noble spirit covered the area for tens of thousands of kilometers in the blink of an eye, turning the world white. The sound of someone reciting the scripture rang out everywhere, appearing boundlessly holy.

The scene from “Bring in the Wine” had already been very shocking. However, even that paled severalfold compared to this.

Fiery-red characters came out of the holy Dao scripture. Every one of them looked like a blazing sun rising into the sky. An intense fire burned in the surroundings as the fiery light soared into the sky.

Standing nearby, Gu Hai and Bing Ji immediately sensed a boundless heat rushing over.

“Blazing Sun True Scripture?” Gu Hai looked at the four largest characters.

“That’s right. The ancient Blazing Sun True Scripture. What do you think? Hahahaha!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity guffawed.

“Your Majesty, we should go quickly,” Bing Ji exhorted extremely anxiously.

“You can’t leave. This is the world of the holy Dao scripture. Everywhere you go will be filled with the Blazing Sun True Fire. Humph!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity sneered.

------

At the same time, in a city gate tower to the south:

Whoosh! Whoosh!

Many figures flew over quickly, leading zombies.

The Bat Ancestor, Archduke Xi Kang, and the Chang Clan elders glared at their subordinates.

“Is there any news?” everyone asked anxiously.

“None!”

“There’s none on my side, either!”

The subordinates shook their heads. The Bat Ancestor and the others turned sullen.

“Primogenitor! There’s…there’s some news on my side!” a vampire said excitedly. 

However, that vampire only spoke midway when a loud sound rang out to the north. Then, overwhelming noble spirit surged, lighting up the sky even from a distance.

“What?” The expressions of the Bat Ancestor and the others changed as they quickly came out of the city gate tower.

The moment they came out, they noticed the overwhelming noble spirit.

Gasp! Everyone inhaled sharply.

“That is?” Archduke Xi Kang said in shock.

“Noble spirit? Is that a holy Dao scripture? Only a holy Dao scripture could show such a sign. A holy Dao scripture?” The Bat Ancestor’s eyes blazed with fervor.

“Come with me!” the Bat Ancestor shouted.

Rumble…! Tens of thousands of zombies suddenly flew up in the surroundings and shot into the distance, in the Bat Ancestor’s trail.

“Come with me!” Archduke Xi Kang shouted as well, and tens of thousands of zombies quickly followed, heading for the noble spirit.

The Chang Clan members also rushed over with numerous zombies.

Tens of thousands of Heavenly Palace Realm experts rushed towards the noble spirit.

Far away, the Great Light Sovereign Deity looked over. When he saw that the distant Bat Ancestor and the others had already moved, he showed a cold smile.

“Alright. I have checked my holy Dao scripture already. Gu Hai, I wish you good luck!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said with a cold smile.

Then, the Great Light Sovereign Deity extended his hand to grab the holy Dao scripture floating in the sky.

However, just as he was about to grab it, a beam of red light appeared out of nowhere, shooting at his hand.

Boom!

The red light struck the Great Light Sovereign Deity’s hand, causing him to stop in his tracks.

“Who is it?!” The Great Light Sovereign Deity’s expression suddenly changed.

Is someone trying to snatch my holy Dao scripture?

Far away, Gu Hai and Bing Ji were about to leave. However, they felt slightly startled when they saw the Great Light Sovereign Deity under attack.

“Is Imperial Emperor Xi Yu here?” Bing Ji said in confusion.

“No one dares to snatch my things yet. Humph! Acting all mysterious and hiding? Should I drag you out?” The Great Light Sovereign Deity glared.

Boom!

Suddenly, boundless azure light flared behind the Great Light Sovereign Deity, and many peacock plumes hovered in the air. He was clearly furious.

“Little peacock, to think that you dare to be so audacious before us?” A female voice suddenly rang out of nowhere.

Boom!

This woman’s voice sounded stern, exuding infrangible pride.

“Oh? A woman? You are truly seeking death. To think that you dare to try and snatch my holy Dao scripture?” The Great Light Sovereign Deity’s eyes turned cold as he tried to grab the holy Dao scripture in the air again.

That woman’s voice rang out again. “The Blazing Sun True Scripture? It belongs to us now!” 

That voice sounded distant at first but sounded closer as time passed. Clearly, this woman was still far away but was approaching rapidly.

When the Great Light Sovereign Deity reached for the holy Dao scripture again, intense flames appeared out of nowhere and charged at his hand.

This time, the Great Light Sovereign Deity had his guard up. The azure light behind him swung down.

Boom!

This immediately stopped the intense flames. However, this fire was very strange; it continued blazing within the azure light as though burning through.

“Who are you?” The Great Light Sovereign Deity’s expression chilled.

His azure light, which had never failed, was actually ineffective?

Boom!

Suddenly, the nearby space rippled as though a hole was being torn open.

“Roar! Roar!”

Two dragon roars came from the tear in space. Then, surging, Yin-attributed energy poured out.

“The nether realm?” Bing Ji’s expression changed.

Two dragons suddenly flew out of that tear in space.

These dragons were about three hundred thirty meters long.

“A nether fire dragon?” Gu Hai appeared shocked.

Not long ago, Mister Dongfang used nether fire dragons to deal with Gu Hai. Those nether fire dragons had been only about sixty-six meters long and apparently not intelligent. However, the nether fire dragon before Gu Hai now was three hundred thirty meters long, with a spark of intelligence in its eyes; it was a living being.

There were two three-hundred-thirty-meters-long dragons. One was a nether fire dragon, while the other was a bone dragon—a pile of dragon bones that were alive, with a blue light in its eye sockets.

A bone dragon and a nether fire dragon? Two three-hundred-thirty-meters-long dragons pulled a fiery-red carriage out of the nether realm.

Boom!

The door to the nether realm closed.

The bone dragon and nether fire dragon turned malevolent gazes at the Great Light Sovereign Deity.

“A bone dragon transformed from the Myriad Bone Sinister Mountain’s White Bone Divine General? A nether fire dragon transformed from the East Spiritual Fire Sea’s Nether Fire Divine Commander?” The Great Light Sovereign Deity’s face sank.

As the dragon carriage hovered in the air, a woman wearing red imperial robes with golden embroidery slowly stepped out of the carriage. She wore a crown on her head with a prideful countenance as she looked at the Blazing Sun True Scripture, then turned to the Great Light Sovereign Deity.

“Hanba, Jiang Ba?” The Great Light Sovereign Deity suddenly glared.

“Ba?” The distant Gu Hai raised his eyebrows.

Isn’t this the Hanba ancestor that escaped the seal in Dragon Vein City? Jiang Ba, right? No, she abandoned her family name. She is now Ba. Ba? Why is she here?

Hey guys, you all probably have been seeing the occasional message about Patreon and how EIF isn't doing very well financially. So I held out as long as I can, and unfortunately, things are not looking up. In the interest of being able to keep up a sustainable income to pay my bills and pay the team sufficiently, I'm going to have to lower the release rates of EIF in favor of picking up another novel. As of now, I have not found another novel yet, but I will be decreasing the release rates from May onwards so that I have time to search for the next novel. For now, the rates will be lowered to 30 chapters a month, essentially daily chapters.
