Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 01 Chapter 046: Vast Army

Rumble…!

Now, ten thousand horses galloped with strong momentum and a surging murderous air, charging at the cloud beast battle.

Bodhisattva Lian Sheng and the first elder felt somewhat breathless at a plaza.

“A vast army?” the first elder said.

“It is indeed him? Haha! This is the first time I heard that one could create such a scene when summoning a cloud beast,” Bodhisattva Lian Sheng said with a smile.

“Who is this person? How is he this skilled in Go? Furthermore, he actually understands the laws of this world?” The first elder turned to Bodhisattva Lian Sheng.

Bodhisattva Lian Sheng looked at the general cloud beast at the frontmost. Gu Hai’s body was half-sunk into the head of the general wielding a halberd.

“He is called Gu Hai!” Bodhisattva Lian Sheng replied seriously.

------

At the summit of a mountain peak:

The Great Light Sovereign Deity led his group of subordinates in looking up at the sky. During the past few days, they had been observing the battle in the sky. When the thousands of mounted soldiers suddenly appeared, they startled even the Great Light Sovereign Deity.

“A vast army? Somewhat interesting.” The Great Light Sovereign Deity smiled coldly.

“Huh? That is?” Suddenly, the volume of the Great Light Sovereign Deity’s voice increased significantly.

“Great Light Sovereign Deity, look! Look at the very front of that vast army! That person is carrying…!” a black-robed man suddenly exclaimed.

“Great Light Sovereign Deity, is that Queen Wa?” The group of black-robed men immediately turned restless.

“Keep watching!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said seriously.

------

The appearance of the vast army immediately caught the attention of countless cultivators and natives. They all goggled in disbelief.

“How could it be like this? This has never happened before!”

“It is just one golden Go stone. How could it summon a group of cloud beasts?”

“Am I dreaming? What kind of sick joke is this?”

Shocked exclamations rang out all over.

The countless outsiders stared with wide eyes. Some of them had been eliminated early on, part of the first batch whose cloud beasts were consumed. Hence, they had lost their qualification to compete. Some of them never obtained a golden Go stone.

However, when these unqualified outsiders saw this scene, their faces twitched, but they also felt somewhat celebratory. All of them chorused spontaneously, “Ridiculous!”

------

Rumble…!

As the vast army charged over, the ones who felt it the most deeply were the people fighting in the sky.

Although these mounted soldiers and horses were only three hundred meters tall, there were simply too many of them. There were more than ten thousand; how could there be so many?

The many cultivators were at a loss.

Meng Tai’s expression changed as well.

Meng Tai had known that Gu Hai possessed astonishing Go skills. Unexpectedly, it was this exaggerated. How was this just astonishing Go skills? This was simply cheating.

Could Gu Hai snatch the century lifespan immortality peach tree on his own? How were the others going to snatch it?”

“Everyone, fight that vast army!” Meng Tai shouted.

Ninth Young Master’s expression changed as well. Indeed, in the blink of an eye, the cloud beasts on Meng Tai’s side were no longer the main threat. The vast army became the greatest threat.

“Stop attacking and prepare to defend against that vast army at full power!” Ninth Young Master shouted.

“Yes!”

In the blink of an eye, the two opposing factions fighting to the death united against a common enemy, the vast army.

Gao Xianzhi’s eyes filled with shock.

“The division master became a manifestation of Old Mister Guan Qi? Am I dreaming?” Chen Tianshan rubbed his eyes excitedly.

------

Rumble…!

Amid the vast army, Gu Hai used his golden Go stone to control the entire army to charge toward the century lifespan immortality peach tree in the sky.

Gu Hai would not have done so before his closed-door cultivation. However, during that time, he came to understand the Go Dao ritual array. Although he was weak right now and could not display the strength of the Go Dao, he had a golden Go stone in hand. That was something that gave him the right to use the power of this independent world.

The golden Go stone was power. Gu Hai comprehended the Go Great Dao. Using the Go Great Dao’s power, Gu Hai could bring out powers that others could not understand.

This vast army was a killing move formed by Gu Hai’s Go knowledge.

The vast army charged forward, advancing courageously. No matter what came, no one could stop them as they swept through the place.

“Kill!”

The general holding the halberd appeared ferocious, filling with murderous intent.

“Hoo-ah!” the vast army roared together, and their voices shook the sky.

Gu Hai controlled the vast army while carrying Xiaorou in his embrace.

“Xiaorou, don’t sleep. Listen to me. Don’t sleep. I can save you soon. Don’t sleep. Don’t ever sleep!” Gu Hai anxiously shook Xiaorou awake.

Xiaorou would occasionally open her eyes before closing them back. It looked like she already reached her limit.

Her vision alternated between darkness and sight. When she saw Gu Hai’s anxious face, she revealed a faint sweet smile. However, she was too weak, unable to keep her eyes open.

“Xiaorou, don’t sleep!” Gu Hai continuously shook Xiaorou.

“Benefactor,” Xiaorou muttered weakly.

“Faster! Faster! Faster!” Gu Hai roared anxiously.

The general wielding the halberd stuck the rump of his horse with his horsewhip. Then, he bellowed with strong murderous intent, “Kill! Kill! Kill!”

Rumble…!

The army charged faster.

Boom!

Soon, the vast army approached.

The one thousand cloud beasts there immediately appeared like they faced a common enemy, rearranging their formation to defend against the vast army.

The vast army arrived with a surging murderous air. When Meng Tai and Ninth Young Master saw this, cold sweat appeared on their foreheads. Soon, the two sides clashed.

“Block them! Block them!” Meng Tai shouted.

“Roar!”

“Roar!”

“Roar!”

The ten-odd gigantic cloud beasts in the front roared and started biting and clawing.

“Kill!” The general in front glared and swung his halberd.

Boom!

An enormous wolf cloud beast immediately blocked the attack and howled. However, the vast army followed behind.

Boom! Boom! Boom!

Various weapons landed on the enormous wolf cloud beast.

Bang!

The wolf cloud beast at the very front immediately exploded. The vast army did not even think of consuming it, instantly killing and exploding it.

“Ah!”

A cultivator suddenly fell from the sky, falling more than thirty kilometers. As for his golden Go stone, it shattered together with the cloud beast.

Rumble…!

The gigantic cloud beasts at the very front suffered from the combined attacks of the various soldiers working together and charging forward. Although they were small, there were many of them, so size did not matter; the combined attacks of the soldiers were too strong.

The vast army tore a hole in the crowd of cloud beasts and charged in through that hole.

“Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!”

The shocking roars spread out. The organized killings looked incredibly ferocious as the army swept through the place.

The vast army chopped down anyone who dared to block them before trampling them.

“Ah!”

“Ah!”

“Ah!”

A series of miserable cries rang out, and many cultivators rained down from the sky, resulting in endless screams.

“Block them! Block them! Block them!” Meng Tai shouted while his expression changed dramatically.

Everywhere the vast army passed, it completely crushed the many cloud beasts in its way.

What kind of sick joke is this? We possess the most elite cloud beasts that went through plenty of slaughter. Yet, we cannot beat a cloud beast formed by just one person?

“Kill! Kill! Kill!”

“Roar! Roar! Roar!”

The vast army charged over, and the battle between the two sides became even more ferocious.

“Gu Hai! Gu Hai! How dare you?!” Ninth Young Master howled while glaring.

Back then, Ninth Young Master showed complete disdain for Gu Hai, even saying that Gu Hai was not worthy of knowing who he was. However, when he saw Gu Hai’s vast army, he lost that confidence from before. Now, horror filled his eyes.

However, Gu Hai did not look at anyone at this moment. Instead, he stared at that century lifespan immortality peach tree and the golden immortality peaches on it.

“We are almost there. Xiaorou, hold on. You can eat that peach soon. You should be able to recover quickly. Xiaorou, don’t sleep! Don’t sleep!” Gu Hai urged anxiously.

“Benefactor. Benefactor.” Xiaorou’s eyes slowly closed again.

Gu Hai’s expression changed, now showing ferocity.

“Quickly, kill! Charge in!” Gu Hai yelled while glaring.

“Kill!”

The halberd-wielding general roared, and the army’s morale suddenly soared, causing them to charge forward without a care for their survival.

“Hoo-ah!”

Rumble…! Rumble…!

“Ah!”

“Ah!”

“Ah!”

The human rain grew heavier.

Meng Tai stared at the scene before him. How am I to block that? This vast army is too ferocious. It is overwhelming, crushing us, sweeping through us like breaking rotten wood, an irresistible force.

“Block them! Left flank and right flank, all of you, charge to the center. Quick! Quick! Quick!” Meng Tai bellowed.

Rumble…!

The vast army knocked back a large number of cloud beasts. The various cloud beasts fell when the many attacks landed on them.

“Block them!” Meng Tai shrieked in horror.

Boom!

The halberd chopped down on the dragon Meng Tai sat on.

“Roar!” The dragon cloud beast let out a pained cry.

Rumble…!

The many attacks of the soldiers already landed, riddling the dragon cloud beast Meng Tai rode on with wounds.

“Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!”

“You bastard!” Meng Tai’s expression changed dramatically.

However, Meng Tai could not do anything about it. The army’s offensive power was too great. It swept through everything like breaking rotten wood, destroying everything in its path.

Rumble!

The vast army broke through the defending outsiders and reached the defending natives.

“Block them! Block them!” Ninth Young Master also shrieked in alarm.

“Everyone, kill!” the halberd-wielding general bellowed ferociously.

“Hoo-ah!”

The entire army roared together and charged towards the natives.

Ninth Young Master’s expression changed dramatically as he stared at Gu Hai.

Ninth Young Master controlled the nine-headed snake, making a snake head bite at Gu Hai. I can win as long as I finish off Gu Hai, right?

However, the general that Gu Hai stood on was incredibly ferocious too. As he glared, he swung his halberd.

“I have the strength to pick up mountains, and my might conquers the world! Break!” the halberd-wielding general bellowed while showing a ferocious expression.

[TL Note: This is from a poem called The Hegemon’s Lament, composed by Xiang Yu while Liu Bang’s forces trapped him.]

Boom!

A gigantic snake head suddenly went flying. The halberd-wielding general had chopped it off.

“What?” Ninth Young Master exclaimed with wide eyes.

How can that halberd strike be so strong? To think that it chopped off one of my nine-headed snake’s heads?

“Roar!”

“Roar!”

The rest of the army charged over from behind, attacking the nine-headed snake—now eight-headed—with their general in front.

The now eight-headed snake swung its tail at the soldiers and horses. However, there were too many of them densely packed together, attacking in a frenzy.

“Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!”

The general was ferocious, and the soldiers were equally ferocious. If they could not win with one, they had one hundred others. Soon, they riddled the eight-headed snake with wounds.

Boom!

The soldiers chopped off another head.

Now, it was a seven-headed snake.

“No! No! You are a demon! Gu Hai, you demon!” Ninth Young Master yelled anxiously, letting his emotions affect him.

Rumble…!

The vast army continued killing, emerging as the victor in the blink of an eye.

The allied defenders were mighty, but the vast army was even more ferocious. It crushed everything in its way. By the time it reached the century lifespan immortality peach tree, countless people had rained down from the sky.

The previously ferocious leaders of the two factions now looked very miserable, kicked to the side.

The vast army immediately surrounded the century lifespan immortality peach tree.

Now, less than three hundred remained of the initial one thousand cloud beast defenders. Wounds covered all of them as they stared blankly at the result of the battle from the side.

No one knew whether the people who fell from a great height survived.

Only two heads remained of the previously nine-headed snake before it managed to flee. Meng Tai’s dragon had lost its tail, four limbs, and horns, retreating to the side while covered in wounds.

Aside from Gao Xianzhi and Chen Tianshan, who retreated long ago, most people who led to the side were nursing countless wounds, presenting a sorry sight. They all watched as the vast army that suddenly arrived monopolized the century lifespan immortality peach tree.

Meng Tai’s heart bled. He had done so much previously, laying many schemes. However, he ended up just fleeing to the side to watch.

“Gu Hai?” Meng Tai said hatefully, feeling depressed and not reconciled with that fact.

“Gu Hai!” Ninth Young Master raved, now covered in wounds.

Novel Notes

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.
