Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 01 Chapter 047: The Regretful Chen Tianshan

The vast army occupied the area around the century lifespan immortality peach tree.

The scene of the vast army sweeping through all the cloud beasts had left everyone breathless. Countless pairs of eyes all over this independent world stared at the vast fearless army, which had reduced all the defending cloud beasts to sorry states.

Everyone stared at Gu Hai, feeling shocked. They seemed to want to carve Gu Hai into their minds.

------

At a plaza:

The first elder and Bodhisattva Lian Sheng remained silent for a while.

“Gu Hai?” the first elder said coldly.

“The ninth inheritor of Guan Qi. This Ninth Young Master is this generation’s ninth inheritor, right? He seems somewhat disappointing, doesn’t he?” Bodhisattva Lian Sheng asked out of curiosity.

The first elder remained silent, not saying anything.

Then, a group of people suddenly rushed over from behind.

“First Elder, what should we do? Outsiders have occupied the century lifespan immortality peach tree!”

“First Elder, let us make a move!”

“First Elder, the century lifespan immortality peach tree is our Heavenly Go Pavilion’s only lifespan plant!”

This group of people felt very anxious about the century lifespan immortality peach tree being snatched away, as well as extremely horrified. However, they were helpless, as the first elder had forbidden them from taking action. Hence, everyone could only come and beg the first elder.

The first elder looked at the sky, remaining silent for a while.

“Little Nine lost the century lifespan immortality peach tree. Let him get it back himself!” the first elder said coldly, rejecting the group’s request.

“But First Elder, that is the century lifespan immortality peach tree! We—”

“That’s enough. Go back!” the first elder shouted coldly.

These people exchanged glances, appearing unresigned. They looked up at Gu Hai in the sky, with hatred and resentment on their faces.

“Hey? What is Gu Hai doing?” Bodhisattva Lian Sheng revealed some shock.

------

At the summit of a mountain peak:

The Great Light Sovereign Deity looked at the sky with his group of black-robed men.

“She looks very alike. Great Light Sovereign Deity, is that really Queen Wa in that person’s embrace?”

“Indeed. Furthermore, Queen Wa looks like she is on the verge of death?”

“What should we do? Great Light Sovereign Deity, should we make our move?”

“Great Light Sovereign Deity…!”

The group of black-robed men clamored anxiously.

“Shut up!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity shouted coldly.

Huh?!

Everyone felt stunned.

“Yes. We overstepped. The Great Light Sovereign Deity is wise and can see things clearer than we can!” a black-robed man said, feeling embarrassed.

The Great Light Sovereign Deity ignored that person and continued to stare at the sky.

Everyone looking at the century lifespan immortality peach tree suddenly saw Gu Hai making a certain movement, immediately shocking the group of black-robed men.

“Oh? What is that person doing?”

------

Meng Tai, Ninth Young Master, and the other people who were chased out stared at Gu Hai in hatred and resentment. To think that he managed to snatch the century lifespan immortality peach tree. Everyone felt upset over this.

However, Meng Tai opened his eyes wide in shock at the next moment. “What? Is Gu Hai crazy? What is he doing?!”

The vast army surrounded the century lifespan immortality peach tree. Then, the general that Gu Hai rode on lowered its head, bringing him to the century lifespan immortality peach tree.

“Xiaorou, don’t sleep! Wake up! Don’t sleep!” Gu Hai roared.

As Gu Hai spoke, he reached out to pick a watermelon-sized golden immortality peach.

Bang!

The moment Gu Hai picked the golden immortality peach, the tree branch immediately gave off a resplendent rainbow light.

Gu Hai ignored the rainbow light. Instead, he brought the golden immortality peach to Xiaorou’s mouth.

“Benefactor,” Xiaorou muttered weakly.

“Open your mouth and eat. Eat!” Gu Hai called out.

Xiaorou kept her eyes closed as she opened her mouth in a stupor. Then, Gu Hai placed the golden immortality peach at her mouth. It seemed to dissolve upon entering her mouth, suddenly turning into a golden liquid flowing into her mouth.

“Whoosh!”

Xiaorou drank the immortality peach like it was water.

Then, her figure trembled as her body gave off a multicolored light.

“Is Gu Hai crazy? That is a golden immortality peach, and he gave it to an animal spirit servant to eat?” Meng Tai exclaimed with great sorrow from a distance.

“What audacity, Gu Hai!” Ninth Young Master also felt anxious.

The century lifespan immortality peach tree bore only ten fruits every century. That meant there would be only ten immortality peaches every century. Yet, Gu Hai gave one to an animal spirit servant, the lowest of all servants?

“Division Master, that is…that is the century lifespan immortality peach!” Watching from not far away, Chen Tianshan felt stunned and on edge.

However, Gao Xianzhi suddenly entered deep thought. “Perhaps following Gu Hai might be a pretty good choice?”

The countless cultivators around goggled, the outsiders’ eyes turning red with jealousy as they watched Gu Hai.

This Gu Hai was way too wasteful, right?

However, the wasteful bit was not that he gave it to Xiaorou. The century lifespan immortality peach was a spirit herb for increasing lifespan, not for treating injuries.

When Gu Hai saw that Xiaorou’s figure trembled and seemed to regain some complexion, he immediately rejoiced and reached out to pick a second golden immortality peach.

Bang!

After Gu Hai picked the second golden immortality peach, he brought it to Xiaorou’s mouth like before.

In her stupor, Xiaorou opened her mouth and consumed it. The immortality peach did not have a pit, and it melted in the mouth, so it quickly entered Xiaorou’s stomach.

“Another one?! Another one?! Gu Hai, you wastrel!” Meng Tai roared, cursing with a glare in the distance.

He had fought hard, risking death, and employed many schemes. Even so, he had failed to obtain a single century lifespan immortality peach. To think that Gu Hai gave the century lifespan immortality peaches to an insignificant animal spirit servant he had saved by chance. That was the century lifespan immortality peach. Outside the Innate Puzzle World, it would be worth cities. People would go crazy over it. Yet, Gu Hai fed it to an insignificant animal spirit? What a wastrel!

The countless cultivators below felt punch-drunk. Can you be any more wasteful?

------

At a plaza below:

“First Elder! First Elder! If we still don’t make a move, the century lifespan immortality peaches will all be gone!”

“First Elder, let us do something!”

“Shut up!” the first elder shouted coldly.

Everyone bitterly shut their mouth. As they looked at the sky, hatred and resentment flashed in their eyes. Even the Heavenly Go Pavilion disciples found it extremely difficult to obtain a century lifespan immortality peach. However, an outsider kept wasting them now. Could this scene be any more annoying?

“This Gu Hai? He has both a benevolent heart and a selfish heart. A truly complicated person.” Bodhisattva Lian Sheng shook his head, finding Gu Hai somewhat unfathomable.

------

At the summit of a mountain peak:

“Great Light Sovereign Deity, that person is saving her? With the century lifespan immortality peach? To think that he is willing to do this!”

“Indeed. He already used two. Ah?! That’s the third one. How unexpected!”

“Great Light Sovereign Deity, if she is really Queen Wa, this person…?”

The group of black-robed men looked at the sky, not knowing what to say.

The Great Light Sovereign Deity stared at the sky and said indifferently, “Saving Queen Wa at all costs? This is a considerable favor!”

“Queen Wa? She is really Queen Wa?” the group of black-robed men immediately exclaimed joyfully.

“We finally found her. However, this person is putting me in a difficult spot by saving Queen Wa at all costs,” the Great Light Sovereign Deity said indifferently.

“Ah? Great Light Sovereign Deity, how were you planning to deal with him?” the group of black-robed men asked, feeling confused.

“Tie things up by killing him!” the Great Light Sovereign Deity replied coldly.

------

High in the air, Xiaorou slowly woke up only after eating three golden immortality peaches.

Not far away, Chen Tianshan felt incredibly conflicted, appearing very depressed.

Slap!

Chen Tianshan slapped himself.

“What are you doing? Senior Chen?” Gao Xianzhi looked at Chen Tianshan, feeling confused.

“Gao Xianzhi, earlier you guessed that something happened in Carefree Valley and that Xiaorou probably got injured trying to protect the division master, who was in closed-door cultivation, right?” Chen Tianshan stared at Gao Xianzhi with bloodshot eyes.

“Indeed. A raging fire still blazes in Carefree Valley, so that should not be far from the truth. Xiaorou’s injuries definitely resulted from protecting the division master, who was in closed-door cultivation.” Gao Xianzhi nodded.

Slap! Chen Tianshan slapped himself again.

Gao Xianzhi: “…”

“Tell me, why am I so stupid? Three century lifespan immortality peaches! Three! After fighting for so long, I nearly fell to my death. Yet, Xiaorou only protected the division master, and she obtained three century lifespan immortality peaches? Why is it this unfair? Why did I get obsessed in my pursuit of the century lifespan immortality peach, letting it lead me astray? Why did I get so obsessed, blinded by potential gains?”

Slap! Chen Tianshan slapped himself again.

Gao Xianzhi: “…”

“If I did not rush to come and snatch the century lifespan immortality peaches but remained behind to guard the division master, I might be the one eating the century lifespan immortality peaches now.”

Slap! Chen Tianshan slapped himself again.

Gao Xianzhi: “…!”

“Benefactor, I…I’m fine now. Thank you, Benefactor. Sob! Sob! Sob! The century lifespan immortality peach? Benefactor, Xiaorou’s life is worth nothing. It is not worth Benefactor saving me like this!” Xiaorou said while sobbing.

“It is up to me whether it is worth it or not. You saved me earlier. Can I not save you now? I, Gu Hai, am not a person that cannot bear to part with three peaches.

“Thank you, Benefactor!” Xiaorou bit her lips, gratitude filling her eyes.

Xiaorou turned her head and looked at the surroundings. When she saw the many envious gazes from the surrounding cultivators, she could guess how great the grace that her benefactor had shown her was. She was just an insignificant animal spirit servant who watched the herb fields. To think that her benefactor was so nice to her.

Xiaorou choked up, not knowing what to say.

Gu Hai gently placed Xiaorou on the head of the general cloud beast. Then, he examined the century lifespan immortality peach tree carefully.

“The century lifespan immortality peach tree?” Gu Hai said with narrowed eyes.

This is the Heavenly Go Pavilion’s precious treasure. This famous treasure is now mine? No, why are the Heavenly Go Pavilion’s people not reacting?

Gu Hai lowered his head and looked around.

“Gu Hai, the century lifespan immortality peach tree is a treasure of my Heavenly Go Pavilion. If you dare touch it again, you can forget about leaving this world forever!” Ninth Young Master said coldly, glaring at him from far away.

Gu Hai looked down and saw the injured Ninth Young Master. Then, he narrowed his eyes.

“It looks like the Heavenly Go Pavilion still cares about this century lifespan immortality peach tree. That is good. Ha!” Gu Hai revealed a cold smile.

After looking at Ninth Young Master, Gu Hai continued looking around.

Gu Hai could see many places from high in the sky. For now, he could not figure out the location of the Heavenly Go Pavilion’s headquarters. However, that did not matter.

Gu Hai stretched out his hand and touched the century lifespan immortality peach tree’s bark. Then, he suddenly said coldly, “Heavenly Go Pavilion disciples, listen up!”

When Gu Hai spoke, the cloud beast he stood on also spoke.

“Heavenly Go Pavilion disciples, listen up!” the general cloud beast shouted. Its voice shook the sky, and the surging sound waves spread everywhere in the world. Everyone stared at Gu Hai.

“I, Gu Hai, will give the Heavenly Go Pavilion ten days starting today. If I do not see the Unborn Man ten days from now, I will uproot the century lifespan immortality peach tree and utterly destroy it!”

The general cloud beast shouted, spreading this ultimatum everywhere in this independent world.

“What?” Ninth Young Master exclaimed.

Meng Tai also goggled. “Gu Hai, are you crazy?!”

“That is a lifespan plant! Division Master, that is a lifespan plant!” Chen Tianshan cried out in shock.

Shocked cries rang out all over the independent world. Was this Gu Hai crazy? There were only a few lifespan plants in the entire world, yet he wanted to uproot and utterly destroy one? What kind of sick joke was this?

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.
