Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 01 Chapter 057: The Unborn Man

Boom!

At Gu Hai’s command, Gao Xianzhi extended his hand and took out his golden Go stone. Then, he summoned his winged dragon and charged down on it.

Whoosh!

The mob of cloud beasts in the surroundings made way for Gao Xianzhi.

In the valley below, the Hall Elite disciples whom the Great Light Sovereign Deity had chopped in half at the waist with the peacock plume feather had all fallen and turned into bloody mush. However, there was still a mangled survivor.

It was Meng Tai. He had continuously consumed medicinal pills and crawled over to his lower half at the same time. The medicinal pills had allowed him to rejoin the two halves of his body.

However, he had just been chopped in half at the waist recently, sustaining severe injuries. Now, he crawled arduously into the forest to hide.

Unfortunately, he had fallen into a bare rocky valley, so there was nothing to hide him, and Gu Hai immediately saw him.

Boom!

The winged dragon cloud beast charged down.

“No!” Meng Tai’s expression changed dramatically.

Boom!

The winged dragon cloud beast swiped its claws and grabbed Meng Tai. Then, it soared back into the sky, flying towards the dark clouds in the sky.

“Let me go! Let me go!” Meng Tai appeared anxious.

He had never been in such a sorry state before, never. He nearly managed to hide and run away.

Whoosh!

Gao Xianzhi brought Meng Tai before Gu Hai in the blink of an eye.

“Ah, Division Master Meng!” A cold light flashed in Gu Hai’s eyes.

“Gu Hai, what are you trying to do? I am Elite Hall’s Earth Division Master. If you dare hurt me, things will not end well for you!” Meng Tai said as his expression changed.

“I don’t need to tell you about my end. I brought you here only to tell you that I am aware of everything you did. I knew it from the moment you incited Song Qingshu. I gave Song Qingshu a few chances, but he did not treasure them. Likewise, I also gave you chances on account that we are from the same sect. However, you did not treasure them, either. I don’t wish to say anything more. Just die!” Gu Hai said coldly.

Shing!

Suddenly, the ferocious general’s halberd swung at Meng Tai.

As the blade descended, a strong killing intent pressed down.

Meng Tai’s expression changed. “Wait! Wait! Do you want your entire clan to die?!”

“Huh?” The halberd suddenly paused.

“Nine-Five Island! Nine-Five Island’s First Song Sect has an agreement with us, and they are about to take action to rule the entire Nine-Five Island. The various sects on Nine-Five Island that surrender will live and those that resist will die. The Clear River Sect will not be spared. If anything happens to me, everything in your Gu Clan will die!” Meng Tai roared while glaring.

“What?” Chen Tianshan’s expression changed.

Gu Hai narrowed his eyes. “Humph!”

Shing!

The halberd swung down.

“No!”

Boom!

The halberd vertically chopped Meng Tai in half. His blood and internal organs immediately spilled out.

Bang!

The winged dragon cloud beast tossed away Meng Tai’s corpse.

Now, there was no possibility of Meng Tai surviving.

Bang! When Meng Tai’s corpse landed on the ground, it was reduced to mush.

The countless cultivators in the surroundings felt a chill in their hearts as they looked at Gu Hai.

Who exactly was Gu Hai? Was he not comrades with Meng Tai? Why was he so ruthless?

Not far away, Ninth Young Master’s face turned unsightly when he saw the fearful expressions of the surrounding cultivators.

There were one hundred thousand cloud beasts. One hundred thousand! Gu Hai had only two subordinates, but the one hundred thousand cloud beasts did not dare to advance.

Ninth Young Master wanted to charge forward, but everyone had already lost their fighting spirit. He could not accomplish anything by charging forward alone.

That was a man who could hold back all of the enemy forces by himself.

“Division Master, what should we do now?” Chen Tianshan looked at Gu Hai.

“This will end soon. After it ends, we will immediately return to Nine-Five Island and inform the Clear River Sect Master to keep his guard up against the sinister plot of the First Song Sect Master and the Elite Hall disciples!” Gu Hai said coldly.

“Ah? Elite Hall? Then, Hall Master…!” Chen Tianshan showed an unsightly expression.

“Hall Master should not know about this matter. This is a private agreement between Meng Tai and the others, some unspeakable scheme. Perhaps Nine-Five Island has something that others did not know about, causing them to be so careful,” Gu Hai said.

“What is at Nine-Five Island? Why did Division Master kill Meng Tai? Earlier…” Chen Tianshan appeared anxious.

“Meng Tai would not have said it. The expression in his eyes already told me that. If I kept listening, it would just be lies that he spun. I might as well not listen!” Gu Hai said.

“Yes!” Although Chen Tianshan did not believe that, he could only nod at this moment.

“Bodhisattva Lian Sheng, many thanks!” Gu Hai said to Bodhisattva Lian Sheng, who was not far away.

“I hope that Division Master Gu does not blame me. You will come to understand who Queen Wa is in the future. At the very least, even I am considered of a junior generation to her. Ah! I already obtained what I came for. It is time I left the Innate Puzzle World. We should be able to meet again soon. At that time, if I have any request, I hope Division Master Gu will oblige me,” Bodhisattva Lian Sheng said while pressing his palms together.

“I will do everything I can.” Gu Hai nodded.

Bodhisattva Lian Sheng nodded as well.

“By the way, Bodhisattva Lian Sheng, there’s something this humble one does not understand. Why can you and the Great Light Sovereign Deity fly without any cloud beasts? Are your cultivations not restricted to the Innate Realm?” Gu Hai ended with a question, feeling curious.

“Our cultivations were limited to the Innate Realm.” Bodhisattva Lian Sheng smiled.

“Huh?” Gu Hai looked at Bodhisattva Lian Sheng, appearing confused.

After all, the Great Light Sovereign Deity showed an overly ferocious combat prowess earlier.

“The Great Light Sovereign Deity did not use his full power earlier. His cultivation was limited to the Innate Realm. However, he did not fight you with his cultivation. Instead, he used his skills. Skills are a part of one’s strength,” Bodhisattva Lian Sheng explained.

After speaking, Bodhisattva Lian Sheng started flying towards the exit in the distance.

“Skills?” Gu Hai frowned as he turned to Chen Tianshan.

Chen Tianshan also appeared slightly confused. He shook his head and said, “I’m not sure about it, either. I seem to recall Sect Master mentioning that animal spirits possess innate talents and skills. I don’t know anything else.”

Gu Hai nodded.

Then, Gu Hai set up the Twenty-Eight Line-Pair World Ritual Array again, continuing to wait for the Unborn Man’s arrival.

------

At a plaza:

The first elder and the sickly youth saw everything that just happened.

“Queen Wa. Why was Queen Wa in our independent world?” the sickly youth said with an unsightly expression.

“I’m not sure. However, it looks like we need to investigate this thoroughly,” the first elder said.

The sickly youth nodded. Then, he raised his head and looked at the cloudy ritual array in the sky. His eyes narrowed as if he was going to make a move.

Buzz!

Suddenly, ripples appeared at a distant peak, then formed shock waves that spread out in all directions.

“The Unborn Man is coming out?” The sickly youth’s expression changed.

“Don’t follow me!” the first elder instructed sullenly.

After the first elder spoke, his figure flashed as he flew off into the distance.

Whoosh!

Soon, the first elder arrived at that peak.

A figure slowly walked out of the center of the ripples coming from the peak.

That figure wore a long robe. However, this long robe looked vertically divided in the middle, with one half black and the other half white.

The long black-and-white robe wrapped around this person’s entire body with a hood covering his head. All that showed was a pair of hands.

However, this pair of hands shocked all the nearby cultivators.

The right hand, which was on the black half of the robe, looked like an old man’s right hand riddled with age spots.

The left hand that appeared from the white half of the robes looked like a baby’s left hand, appearing smooth, young, and tender, with soft skin that showed elasticity.

The ripples vanished when the black-and-white-robed man appeared.

At this moment, a black-clad man flew over from a distance.

“Unborn Man, why are you out?” the black-clad man asked.

The black-and-white-robed man looked at the cloudy ritual array in the sky before looking at the black-clad man. “First Elder, why did you not tell me that someone was looking for me?”

When the black-and-white-robed man finished speaking, the many cultivators in the surroundings goggled. When he had spoken, they had heard two voices—one sounding as juvenile as a child and the other sounding like an aged old man.

One person spoke with two extreme voices?

“The Unborn Man?” someone said in shock, suddenly reacting.

The surrounding cultivators all immediately looked over in shock.

After all, Gu Hai brought out his vast army and camped at the century lifespan immortality peach tree in order to find this person.

------

High in the sky, the eyes of Gu Hai, Chen Tianshan, and Gao Xianzhi lit up.

“Division Master, was it really Queen Wa’s final tail strike that alerted the Unborn Man?” Gao Xianzhi asked, his eyes shining.

“We finally found him!” Chen Tianshan exclaimed excitedly.

Now that they found the Unborn Man, they could return to Nine-Five Island immediately.

------

Far away, the black-clad first elder remained silent for a while before saying, “You have your own thing to do, so we will not hold you up.”

“I do not need you to decide my matters for me!” the black-and-white-robed man said indifferently.

As the Unborn Man spoke, he looked up at the sky, at the ritual array.

The ritual array obscured the inside, but Gu Hai felt that the Unborn Man could see through the ritual array and see him.

“You used the century lifespan immortality peach tree as a hostage to see me. Who are you? How did you know that I am in this world?” the Unborn Man’s voices rang out again.

The overlapping young and old voices sounded terrifying.

“I am Elite Hall’s Water Division Master, Gu Hai. I am here on behalf of the hall master to seek out Senior Unborn Man!” Gu Hai replied gravely.

“Elite Hall’s Water Division Master? Ah! She did not come to see me personally and only sent a representative?” The Unborn Man’s voices sounded dejected.

“Perhaps the Elite Hall Master that Senior knows is not the same as the one I know!” Gu Hai said after a deep breath.

“Oh? Who is it now?” the Unborn Man asked indifferently.

“Long Wanqing. She should be the daughter of the hall master Senior is thinking of. Long Wanqing is the new hall master,” Gu Hai replied gravely.

“Daughter? Long Wanqing? Ha! Haha! That lass finally married! Who is her husband?” The Unborn Man’s voices trembled as he spoke.

Gu Hai suddenly fell silent.

“What’s wrong? Can’t you say it?” the Unborn Man asked.

“No. Long Wanqing asked me to seek out Senior to ask Senior for help. She told me to bring this.” Gu Hai took out a small box after a deep breath.

Whoosh!

The small box suddenly flew towards the Unborn Man and landed in his hand.

The Unborn Man opened the box and saw a hairpin lying quietly inside. This simple hairpin looked ordinary, not giving off any energy fluctuations. It even looked crude.

“I gave this to that lass back then. Didn’t she toss it away? So, she kept it? She kept it? It turns out that she was just angering me. Haha!” Pleasant surprise appeared in the Unborn Man’s voices.

“Senior, please don’t be sad,” Gu Hai said after another deep breath.

The Unborn Man suddenly paused as he held the hairpin. Then, he turned abruptly to look at Gu Hai.

“Long Wanqing said that her mother died twenty years ago. Even now, she has not found the murderer, so she wanted to ask Senior for help to find her mother’s murderer, to help avenge her mother. I beg Senior to come out and help us!” Gu Hai said respectfully.

“Go out? That’s impossible. Unborn Man, you promised the pavilion master!” the first elder immediately protested in shock.

The surrounding people had long held their breath.

The Unborn Man looked at Gu Hai and asked, “What did you say? Say it again! I did not hear clearly. Tell me again, what happened to the lass? What happened to her?”

“Long Wanqing should have found this hairpin when she tidied up her mother’s items. Based on how well-maintained the box was, her mother must have preserved this hairpin very carefully. Someone caused her mother’s death. Furthermore, it should be a very unjust death. Even after twenty years, the murderer remains unknown, so she sincerely begs Senior to come out and find her mother’s murderer and take revenge!” Gu Hai said again.

“Someone killed the lass?” The Unborn Man’s figure suddenly swayed, looking like he would collapse.

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.
