EIF - Book 04 Chapter 169: World Cleansing Shut Eyes Meditation
The Heaven Splitting Ax and Blood Prison clashed in the sky.
The grayish-white light and the crimson light instantly encased the world, blinding everyone.
However, no one felt the ground shake this time. Rather, Blood Prison’s attack did not reach the ground.
The explosion in the sky created many energy whirlpool black holes that sucked in the entire blood sea.
“Our Blood Prison is unrivaled. Break for me!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu snarled ferociously.
Blood Prison unleashed an even more dazzling crimson light. However, the Heaven Splitting Ax unleashed a light tenfold brighter than Blood Prison’s. Even Gu Hai could no longer see what was happening in the sky.
Gu Hai only heard a loud report.
Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s unreconciled voice came from the sky.
The sky for fifty thousand kilometers around cleared. All the crimson light instantly vanished, allowing Gu Hai to see the sky.
The Heaven Splitting Ax’s grayish-white light withdrew significantly from the sky. On the other side, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu stood in place, holding Blood Prison, his eyelids twitching wildly.
“Imperial Emperor Xi Yu is fine?” Chang Ming’s expression changed.
The expressions of Long Shenwu and Long Sanqian changed as well.
The Heaven Splitting Ax was the strongest enchanted treasure in the world. To think that its might failed to chop down Imperial Emperor Xi Yu? And that Blood Prison?
Suddenly, a crack appeared on Blood Prison.
Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack!
More crackling rang out as spiderweb-like cracks spread through Blood Prison.
“Blood Prison cracked?” Chang Ming’s eyes lit up.
Blood Prison exploded and shattered, its shards falling down.
“What? Blood Prison shattered?” Many Han Nation officials goggled.
They had seen how powerful Blood Prison was earlier. Even the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s Fifth Cycle was no match for it. That power seemed to carry the heavenly fate, the incomprehensible Blood Prison. Yet, this ax broke it?
All of Blood Prison’s fragments fell from Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s hand. The previously unrivaled Blood Prison turned into a pile of scrap metal in the blink of an eye.
After Blood Prison exploded, an explosion and tearing sounds came from Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s body. His upper garments burst, and many cracks appeared on his chest. Blood spurted out from these cracks and splattered him.
Blargh! Imperial Emperor Xi Yu spewed out a mouthful of blood.
“Your Reverence!” Qin Yun’s expression changed as he rushed into the sky and instantly arrived before Imperial Emperor Xi Yu to support him.
“Cough! Cough! Cough! Blargh! The Heaven Splitting Ax? The strongest enchanted treasure in the world, the Heaven Splitting Ax? Cough! Cough! Cough! Hahahaha!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu showed a horrified expression as he coughed blood and looked at the Heaven Splitting Ax floating in the air.
Imperial Emperor Xi Yu seemed sapped of strength. Blood covered his chest and arms. That ax had not just shattered Blood Prison. The excess force had also stripped Imperial Emperor Xi Yu of all combat prowess.
The many officials and citizens below were shocked.
To think that this ax was so powerful. That was Imperial Emperor Xi Yu equipped with the unrivaled Blood Prison.
Yet, one ax strike resolved this?
“The strongest of the top sixteen ancient treasures, the Heaven Splitting Ax?” Grief flashed in Venerable Liu Nian’s eyes.
“It truly deserves to be the strongest in the world,” Chang Ming said in shock.
Long Sanqian raised his eyebrows. Eventually, he showed a bitter smile and said, “In the end, Father was right. This child is too shallow. His Holy Eminence’s might is beyond Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s reach.”
However, Long Shenwu suddenly looked at Gu Hai. “Gu Hai, His Holy Eminence sealed one strike in the Heaven Splitting Ax. That strike has been unleashed. Imperial Emperor Xi Yu is already severely injured. Continue attacking. Hurry!”
“Oh?” Gu Hai looked at Long Shenwu.
“Quickly, use your Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s body to kill him. If he escapes, it will leave trouble for the future!” Long Shenwu said anxiously.
Gu Hai nodded silently.
The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor immediately walked in front of everyone.
High in the sky, Qin Yun supported Imperial Emperor Xi Yu.
“Your Reverence, how are your injuries?” Qin Yun asked bitterly.
“I lost? The Heaven Splitting Ax? Hahaha! To think that our full-powered attack could not compare to an ax strike from the Qian Heavenly Emperor. To think that it could not even compare to an ax?!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu showed sorrow and bitterness on his face, unable to accept this outcome.
“Your Reverence, there is no shame in losing to the Qian Heavenly Emperor,” Qin Yun sighed softly.
The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor stood in front of everyone while holding the Life Executioner Saber. He glanced at the Heaven Splitting Ax hovering in the air before looking coldly at the two in the sky.
The Heaven Splitting Ax and the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor?
Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s face sank.
“Your Reverence, since we gained nothing from this trip, we should return. The Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty’s things are not something that we can bear,” Qin Yun said with a bitter smile.
“Return? Perhaps we can no longer return. With our injuries, even if we fly, we would only be slightly faster than a Middle Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator. However, Gu Hai has the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor. Hah! Hahahaha! Unexpectedly, after all our success, we get ended by Gu Hai. A royal dynasty? A mere royal dynasty?!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu watched reluctantly as the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor flew closer.
“Your Reverence, do you remember why the Chang Clan, the Mo Clan, and the Qin Clan swore loyalty to you?” Qin Yun looked at Imperial Emperor Xi Yu.
“Cough! Cough! Cough! Qin Yun, what are you trying to say?” Pressing his hands on his wounds, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu looked at Qin Yun.
“This old official recalls that before the Yuan Nation was established, Your Reverence was a person of virtue. Your Reverence appreciated us, was utterly devoted to us. You even did your best to save our clans. That’s why our three clans swore loyalty to Your Reverence. Back then, when Your Reverence saved Chang Sheng, that old fellow from the Mo Clan once said, ‘Hah…we will die because of His Majesty sooner or later.’ Back then, we were still the Yuan Royal Dynasty. I did not understand what he meant. Now, I do. Your Reverence treated us with sincerity, going all out for us. What you bought with that was not just our hearts but our lives.
“That old fellow died working hard for you. Even on his deathbed, he was still working for you, putting in his best effort and burning the candle at both ends. That was because his gratitude to you was as vast as the heavens.
“Chang Sheng died. Even though Chang Sheng knew that Your Reverence had abandoned him, he still did not leave. He did not give up on Your Reverence, as he was loyal to Your Reverence. To him, his debt of gratitude to Your Reverence was as vast as the heavens. He wanted to repay it with his life.
“After he died, his debt of gratitude was repaid,” Qin Yun sighed softly.
“Qin Yun, what are you trying to say?” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu had a bad premonition.
“The Yinggou Art allowed Your Reverence’s strength to rise rapidly, which put a distance between Your Reverence and us. We could no longer keep up. When Your Reverence looked down at us, you could no longer see us clearly. However, this old official is still Your Reverence’s old official. I can only use myself as a final warning. I hope that Your Reverence can return and recover from your failures. Your Reverence, bring back your old self.” Qin Yu bowed gravely to Imperial Emperor Xi Yu.
“Qin Yun, what are you doing? Cough! Cough! Cough! Cough!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu’s expression changed.
“When this old official followed Your Reverence to the Spirit Mountain Holy Land in the west one thousand two hundred years ago, I gained something. Your Reverence, I came to realize the truth six hundred years ago. It is as the Mo Clan’s old fellow said. The debt of gratitude has to be repaid; it is just a matter of time. Now, this old official understands that this is my time to repay your life-saving grace. Your Reverence, take care,” Qin Yun sighed.
“What? Qin Yun, what are you saying?” Realization suddenly dawned on Imperial Emperor Xi Yu.
Qin Yu sat cross-legged in the sky. He held his hands together and placed them on his lap, looking like an old monk entering meditation as the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor charged over.
An old monk entering mediation?
Suddenly, the distant Gu Hai’s face sank. He instinctively sensed something off.
“Be careful. Don’t go over!” Gu Hai suddenly shouted.
The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor stopped cold.
“Gu Hai, don’t delay. Hurry! Don’t let Imperial Emperor Xi Yu escape. It will be bad if he escapes!” Long Shenwu exclaimed.
“Be careful!” Gu Hai called out again.
The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor held up Life Executioner Saber, appearing guarded.
“That is just Qin Yun, just a Middle Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator. What are you afraid of? You have the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor, and I have the Heaven Splitting Ax. Hurry! Kill Imperial Emperor Xi Yu!” Long Shenwu exclaimed.
However, Gu Hai waved, and a barrier encased everyone.
“Qin Yun, don’t tell me that you cultivated that… Your eyes did not go blind? You are not blind?” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu suddenly exclaimed, quivering in fear.
“I shut my eyes for six hundred years to open my eyes today. World Cleansing Shut Eyes Meditation! Your Reverence, take care,” Qin Yun said gravely.
As Qin Yun spoke, he slowly opened his eyes.
“The World Cleansing Shut Eyes Meditation? A secret technique to ignite one’s souls and accumulations, a method to go down with the enemy? Be careful! Be careful! Hurry, raise your guard!” Venerable Liu Nian exclaimed, his expression suddenly changing drastically.
Gu Hai knew that things were terrible from Venerable Liu Nian’s panic.
The Slaughter Heavenly Emperor immediately returned to protect everyone below.
“Everything in the world follows this pattern. Like dreams being mere illusions, like bubbles quickly disappearing, like images in a mirror disappearing in a flash, like the morning dew vanishing when the morning sun rises, and like lightning flashing. Everything passes; treat everything with this in mind!” Qin Yun chanted slowly.
As Qin Yun chanted, his eyelids rose. Finally, his eyes opened. The moment a crack appeared, his eyes released a golden light. The first rays of light did not seem bright, but they strangely lit up the entire region.

The golden light instantly filled the world. As the glittering, golden light shone, Buddhist chanting rang out like boundless Buddhas chanting the scriptures, but no one could clearly make out the words.
Various images of golden Buddhas sitting cross-legged manifested in the golden light behind Qin Yun. They opened their eyes nearly simultaneously.
The world of golden light instantly shattered as if the entire world shattered. Countless cracks spread out as destructive energy spewed out from Qin Yun’s eyes.
“One of the Spirit Mountain Holy Land’s three supreme secret techniques, the World Cleansing Shut Eyes Meditation!” Long Sanqian exclaimed as his expression changed dramatically.
Space shattered and tore. Some of the tears extended to the ground. A five-thousand-kilometer-long gorge ripped open. However, this was just the beginning. That horrifying might trying to rip the world apart and cleanse it rushed straight at the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor.
The Fifth Cycle’s manifested saber and all the saber qi crumbled, completely ripped apart. Before the golden light from Qin Yun’s eyes, the powerful Fifth Cycle was not even worth a strike.
The huge tear continued rushing towards the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor’s body.
“Hah!” the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor roared in pain.
Even after using all his power, he could not stop this purifying light. His body disintegrated quickly.
