Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 01 Chapter 040: Century Lifespan Immortality Peach Tree

Clack!

When the white-haired, old man made his last move, placing his final white Go stone, he finally exceeded his tolerance and crumbled.

Boom!

The white-haired, old man and the replicated forty thousand-odd Go puzzles behind him exploded, forming a windstorm that threatened to sweep through the space in Gu Hai’s forehead.

------

Bang!

Simultaneously, the circular jade Go board under Gu Hai’s palm finally exploded after countless cracks appeared on it.

“What?” Xiaorou exclaimed.

“This…isn’t this a treasure that Old Mister Guan Qi forged? Why did it explode?” Gao Xianzhi’s expression changed.

Buzz!

The shattered pieces turned into a fine powder and instantly spread out in all directions. It surged to the walls of the cave and suddenly disappeared.

“I feel that the shattered pieces passed through our bodies!” Xiaorou said with a glare.

Gao Xianzhi looked at his hands. He had seen the earlier fine powder fly to his palm and come out from the back of his hand.

“The powder scattered and left the cave?” Chen Tianshan said with a frown.

“The powder is very fine; most people cannot see it. It will scatter with the wind,” Gao Xianzhi said.

Chen Tianshan nodded.

“Do you smell it?” Xiaorou asked.

“Smell what?” Gao Xianzhi and Chen Tianshan replied, feeling confused.

“A fragrance. A certain fragrance that feels very special!” Xiaorou said in shock.

“Huh?” Gao Xianzhi and Chen Tianshan looked at each other, unable to smell the fragrance.

Xiaorou slowly approached Gu Hai and circled him, carefully sniffing.

“It should be the smell of the earlier powder. However, it is very strong on Benefactor’s body,” Xiaorou exclaimed.

Xiaorou continued to slither around Gu Hai. Soon, she reached his forehead.

“This is the place where the fragrance is the strongest!” Xiaorou exclaimed.

“The division master’s forehead?” Chen Tianshan revealed a trace of doubt.

“Xiaorou, don’t interrupt the division master. He has not awakened yet!” Gao Xianzhi called out.

“Oh!” Xiaorou immediately backed off lest she disturb Gu Hai.

------

Gu Hai did not wake up. However, some changes happened after the explosion in his forehead space.

Gu Hai had used his Go skills to overwhelm and explode the pre-programmed puppet of Old Mister Guan Qi. After the pre-programmed puppet exploded, it completely crumbled.

The forty thousand-odd replicated Go puzzles ceased to exist; it did not manage to bring away even a single one.

More importantly, after the pre-programmed puppet exploded, a suction suddenly came from the black Go stone in Gu Hai’s forehead.

Whoosh!

The black Go stone instantly sucked in all the clouds.

After sucking in the clouds, the black Go stone suddenly gave off beams of iridescent light. The movements of the one hundred thousand Go puzzles below instantly doubled in speed. They trembled endlessly like they were undergoing some sort of change.

The illusory body of Gu Hai’s consciousness looked at the one hundred thousand trembling Go puzzles below the black Go stone.

What is happening?

“That’s not right. The black Go stone did not suck in all the clouds!” Gu Hai’s expression changed.

He saw a white crystal not far from the black Go stone. The crystal was not large, just about one-thousandth the size of the black Go stone.

However, this small crystal trembled, appearing to emit some strange energy.

Gu Hai stared at the small crystal and saw an extremely minuscule Go board on it.

However, there were twenty-eight horizontal and vertical lines each on the tiny Go board. This was the Go board that Gu Hai played on earlier. However, the Go stones on it were moving crazily, appearing to simulate various games.

The Go stones on the twenty-eight-line-pair Go board constantly changed positions, generating a strange energy that spread out. Perhaps that was the fragrance that Xiaorou smelled.

“This is the…pre-programmed puppet? This was the program that ran the white-haired, old man who played Go with me?” Gu Hai glared.

When looking at the Go board on the tiny crystal, the one hundred thousand trembling Go puzzles, and the never-changing black Go stone, Gu Hai suddenly felt that this program could be useful to him. It might have something to do with the one hundred thousand trembling Go puzzles below. Furthermore, this program seemed to hide a big secret.

------

Suddenly, Gu Hai opened his eyes.

“Division Master?” Gao Xianzhi looked at Gu Hai in surprise.

Gu Hai looked at his palm. A golden Go stone had appeared there at some point in time. However, this golden Go stone no longer attracted Gu Hai’s attention.

“I am entering closed-door cultivation for a period. Don’t disturb me. It might take some time!” Gu Hai said.

“Yes!” Chen Tianshan and Gao Xianzhi answered.

After speaking, Gu Hai ignored everyone and sank his consciousness into the space in his forehead.

The program of that tiny crystal moved endlessly. Gu Hai slowly immersed his consciousness in this Go board, feeling that there might be something extraordinary in this program that Old Mister Guan Qi left.

As Gu Hai immersed himself in the Go board, Xiaorou, Gao Xianzhi, and Chen Tianshan exchanged looks with each other.

“What’s going on?” Chen Tianshan asked, feeling confused.

Gao Xianzhi shook his head, appearing confused as well.

Search Hosted Novel for the original.

“Xiaorou, do you still smell that fragrance?” Gao Xianzhi asked.

Xiaorou nodded with certainty. “Yes. It is very strong. It is just like the fragrance from the explosion but even more intense. Benefactor’s body is continuously giving off that fragrance!”

Gao Xianzhi and Chen Tianshan exchanged looks.

“What should we do now?” Chen Tianshan looked at Gao Xianzhi.

Gao Xianzhi took a deep breath and said, “No matter what happens to the division master, we are not to disturb him.”

“Are we not going to find the Unborn Man?” Chen Tianshan frowned.

“The division master is not even anxious about it, so why are you so anxious?” Gao Xianzhi shook his head.

“Oh?” Chen Tianshan immediately nodded, rendered speechless.

“I know that most of the outsiders are searching for the Heavenly Go Pavilion’s treasures. However, if we go, we may not find anything. There are so many people, and the Heavenly Go Pavilion disciples have been waiting for many years already. Would they leave any gaps for us? Let’s just wait,” Gao Xianzhi said seriously.

Chen Tianshan thought for a while and nodded.

“That’s right. Xiaorou said that the division master’s forehead is giving off a fragrance. During this time, if we have nothing to do, we should investigate that, see if that fragrance impacts anything,” Gao Xianzhi said.

“That’s fine.” Chen Tianshan nodded.

Xiaorou remained by Gu Hai’s side, gently looking at Gu Hai.

Innate Puzzle World:

A group of black-robed men came to a stop at the summit of a peak.

This group had about one hundred people, and the leader was the Great Light Sovereign Deity, who held the five-colored scepter.

The Great Light Sovereign Deity looked up to the sky, and the others waited respectfully.

“Is there still no news?” the Great Light Sovereign Deity asked indifferently.

“Yes. This world is enormous and is difficult to search within such a short time. Furthermore, we have no clues. We captured a few Heavenly Go Pavilion disciples, but they were unaware of the situation. Great Light Sovereign Deity, should we go to the Heavenly Go Pavilion headquarters and ask their first elder?” a black-robed man replied respectfully.

“It is not time yet!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said indifferently.

“However, everything is peaceful in this independent world. There is simply no way to find Queen Wa’s location.”

“Peaceful? Since it is peaceful, I will make it flare up!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said seriously.

“Oh?”

“I will cause some trouble in this world. You must find Queen Wa within the next half year!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity ordered.

“Yes. However, Great Light Sovereign Deity, what are you going to do?”

“What is the most famous treasure in this independent world?”

“The century lifespan immortality peach tree! Could it be…?”

“That’s right. I found the century lifespan immortality peach tree!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said indifferently.

“Ah?!” everyone exclaimed.

“It is quite well hidden. Unfortunately for them, it still could not escape my notice!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said coldly as he looked at the sky.

As the Great Light Sovereign Deity spoke, he slowly raised his scepter.

“Divine light, come forth. Break it!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity shouted coldly.

Whoosh!

A five-colored rainbow burst from the scepter and charged into the sky, instantly lighting up the place.

When the five-colored light appeared, countless cultivators suddenly looked up at the sky.

------

At a valley:

Meng Tai recuperated with a group of Elite Hall disciples around him. After several days, his injuries had improved significantly.

“Division Master, look! Look at that rainbow!” an Elite Hall disciple exclaimed in shock.

Boom!

A loud sound came from the sky. The five-colored rainbow crashed into a large white cloud.

Bang!

The white cloud suddenly scattered, turning into heavy rain that fell everywhere. However, the countless cultivators no longer paid any attention to the rainbow and the rain.

Instead, they all inhaled sharply.

“Hiss! That is…?” Meng Tai said in shock with wide eyes.

After the white cloud scattered, a thirty-meter-tall peach tree hovered in the air where it had been. The tree appeared lush, and everyone could see human-head-sized golden peaches among the countless leaves.

The large peach tree hovered in the air. Its roots appeared both illusory and solid. It seemed like they rooted into space, absorbing a certain nutrient.

“The century lifespan immortality peach tree?” an Elite Hall disciple said in shock.

It was not just this place. The countless cultivators in the various parts of this independent world all goggled.

“Is that the century lifespan immortality peach tree?”

“It’s real! It turns out that it was hidden in the clouds. No wonder no one managed to find it previously!”

“Who can find it when it is hidden in the clouds?”

“A golden peach? Just eating one results in an increase of one century of lifespan!”

“A lifespan plant?! This is a rare treasure!”

“I must get it!”

The eyes of countless cultivators turned red with greed.

------

At a valley with many palace halls:

Ninth Young Master was rushing back in anger when a loud sound suddenly came from the sky. He turned his head to look and saw the five-colored rainbow scattering the white cloud in the sky and revealing the century lifespan immortality peach tree.

“What? Who is it? Who broke the ritual array around the century lifespan immortality peach tree?” Ninth Young Master’s expression changed.

“That is…” Some of the Heavenly Go Pavilion disciples goggled as well.

The ordinary disciples had not known the location of such a valuable treasure like the century lifespan immortality peach tree.

“Inform the first elder that something happened. I’ll go defend the century lifespan immortality peach tree!” Ninth Young Master said with a glare.

“Yes!” the group of subordinates answered.

Then, Ninth Young Master extended his hand and picked up that golden Go stone.

Boom!

Suddenly, surging clouds covered the surroundings, and the nine-headed snake cloud beast formed within the clouds.

“Roar!”

The nine-headed snake roared as it carried Ninth Young Master to the century lifespan immortality peach tree in the sky.

Boom! Boom! Boom!

Three patches of clouds rushed towards the century lifespan immortality peach tree from different directions at the same time. This meant three cloud beasts were charging at the century lifespan immortality peach tree. Apparently, other people had also obtained a golden Go stone in the independent world.

Ninth Young Master showed a ferocious expression on one of the nine-headed snake’s heads. “We can overlook you snatching the other treasures. However, you also want to snatch away the century lifespan immortality peach tree? You are seeking death! Humph!”

Countless cultivators in the independent world stared at that place in the sky. A huge commotion immediately broke out.

------

Atop a peak, the Great Light Sovereign Deity calmed down after doing all that.

“The century lifespan immortality peach tree? Great Light Sovereign Deity, since you discovered it, why not try and fight for it?” a black-robed man asked, feeling shocked.

“Remember, find Queen Wa first! I exposed the location of the century lifespan immortality peach tree to cause a commotion in this independent world so that it will be easier to find Queen Wa. If you cannot find her, everyone will die. Even if you obtain the century lifespan immortality peach tree, you cannot escape death!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said coldly.

“Yes!” the group of black-robed men responded while quivering.

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.
