Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 02 Chapter 034: Ritual Array within a Ritual Array

Boom!

Surging flames charged at the Heavenly Saber Death Match.

The large amount of flames instantly vaporized the surrounding fog. As the flames burned, they gave off astonishing heat. More importantly, the five chains seemed to possess a strong force. As they bound the entire ritual array, they threatened to cut the ritual array into six.

Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang!

Many heavenly sabers appeared below the chains, densely packed together to block them.

Buzz!

The thousands of heavenly sabers endured the force from the chains.

Boom!

However, intense flames blazed in some places within the ritual array. The evil men’s expressions changed.

“Oh no! Return to the Dragon Tortoise Palace and gather with Milord!”

The anxious evil men rushed back to the Dragon Tortoise Palace.

Outside the Dragon Tortoise Palace, Gu Hai controlled the ritual array. Before the five chains cut the ritual array apart, he made thousands of heavenly sabers clash with them, preventing the chains from reaching the ground.

Gu Hai showed a dark expression, while the others appeared anxious.

“Milord, this is Luo Tiange’s Flame Dragon Chains. They possess astonishing power. This is the enchanted treasure that he relied on to sweep through the Thousand Islands Sea for a century!” Scar said with a frown.

Gu Hai sullenly studied the sky.

As the many evil men returned, they looked at Gu Hai worriedly.

Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack!

Cracks appeared in some of the heavenly sabers in the air. Clearly, the Flame Dragon Chains were too powerful. Despite being exceptionally tough, the Heavenly Saber Death Match could not last for much longer.

“Milord, what should we do now? I heard that Luo Tiange previously used his Flame Dragon Chains to destroy a sect. Even though that sect activated their defensive ritual arrays, they still suffered utter defeat.”

Chen Tianshan’s worry infected the surrounding evil men.

“Shut up! Milord has his ways of dealing with this!” Gao Xianzhi shouted. At this moment, they needed to maintain morale.

Gu Hai kept looking at the sky sullenly.

As the Flame Dragon Chains spat out more flames, the fog in the ritual array evaporated and rose into the air, gradually disappearing. The ritual array’s might also kept weakening.

At the same time, the people outside gained an increasingly clearer view of the ritual array’s interior.

The white fog that previously blocked out the sky slowly dissipated, revealing scenes in the ritual array.

Many corpses sprawled all over the place, inspiring chills in the cultivators outside.

“There were twenty thousand people, and Gu Hai killed all of them? How incredible!”

“What’s so incredible? Look, the Heavenly Saber Death Match is about to break soon!”

“Indeed. The view is becoming clearer. Look there, at the five Flame Dragon Chains. Isn’t there a group of heavenly sabers blocking them? Cracks are appearing in the heavenly sabers!”

“The ritual array cannot last for much longer. It will break soon!”

“The Flame Dragon Chains are really incredible!”

“Luo Tiange lives up to his reputation as the East Sea Pirate King!”

“Gu Hai is dead for sure!”

The surrounding cultivators did not think much of Gu Hai’s chances. After all, the facts were before them. The Flame Dragon Chains bound and burned the Heavenly Saber Death Match, pushing the Heavenly Saber Death Match to its limits.

What else could Gu Hai rely on after the Heavenly Saber Death Match broke?

------

Ninth Young Master sipped tea as he watched Gu Hai and Luo Tiange fight.

“The Flame Dragon Chains? He does have some ability!” Ninth Young Master nodded.

------

On the other side, Meng Tai’s pupils suddenly contracted, as he could already see the rubbish valley in the ritual array. He saw that the valley had been cleared out.

“He found it? Oh no! Gu Hai found it. However, he should not be able to break that barrier. Nevertheless, since he cleared that place, it will be very obvious. Luo Tiange will definitely discover it!” Anxiety appeared on Meng Tai’s face.

Meng Tai paced. Then, he turned his head to look at Feng Ling, who lay in his embrace.

“Feng Ling, you must be tired. Rest for a while!” Meng Tai said gently.

“I…!” Feng Ling shook her head but did not say anything more.

Whoosh! Meng Tai blew at Feng Ling’s face. “You are tired. Sleep. Sleep for a while.”

Feng Ling’s mind seemed to turn cloudy, and she said in a daze, “I feel tired.”

“If you are tired, then sleep,” Meng Tai coaxed gently.

“Alright.” Feng Light slowly closed her eyes, appearing to fall asleep.

Meng Tai walked away silently while carrying Feng Ling, then placed her down somewhere.

------

At another mountaintop, Luo Tiange showed a ferocious expression. “The Heavenly Saber Death Match? It is indeed a pretty good ritual array. Back then, the ritual array of that major sect on Six-Five Island could not last even this long against my Flame Dragon Chains. Let’s see how long you can last. Fire, blaze!”

Boom!

The Flame Dragon Chains flared with dazzling fiery light again, looking like five volcanoes erupting as they tried to melt the Heavenly Saber Death Match.

Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack!

More heavenly sabers shattered.

From inside, it looked like lava covered the sky. The heavenly sabers could not last for much longer.

The evil men all appeared anxious. Only Gu Hai’s expression did not change as he held the Go-board-shaped ritual array core.

Soon, most of the surrounding fog disappeared, revealing Gu Hai’s location to everyone.

Everyone outside could see Gu Hai.

Gu Hai stood in front of the Dragon Tortoise Palace, coldly meeting Luo Tiange’s gaze across the distance without any fear in his eyes.

“Humph! I hate expressions like yours the most. Flame Dragon Chains, harder!” Luo Tiange bellowed while scowling.

Boom!

Luo Tiange immediately pushed the Flame Dragon Chains to their limits, making them grow more powerful.

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Large numbers of heavenly sabers shattered.

Crack!

Suddenly, all the heavenly sabers at a chain shattered.

Boom!

That chain landed first, cutting the Heavenly Saber Death Match into two. The surging flames immediately burned the surroundings, creating a surging sea of fire.

“The ritual array broke! Gu Hai is finished!” Loud exclamations came from outside.

Just at this moment, a figure suddenly entered the sea of fire.

This figure zoomed through the sea of fire, hidden from almost everyone’s eyes. Most people could not see who it was.

Only two people managed to see it.

One was Ninth Young Master, who was outside.

“Oh? It’s Meng Tai?” Ninth Young Master glanced over, appearing slightly surprised.

The other person was Gu Hai.

“He finally entered!” Anticipation flashed in Gu Hai’s eyes.

Luo Tiange controlled the Flame Dragon Chains to sweep towards Gu Hai.

Rattle!

A large number of heavenly sabers appeared to block the Flame Dragon Chains. However, surging flames continued to pour in the direction of the Dragon Tortoise Palace, looking like they wanted to annihilate Gu Hai.

Luo Tiange also flew into the sky, appearing proud. He poured his energy into the Flame Dragon Chains on his back, continuing to burn the ritual array.

“How much longer can you last? Hahahaha! Your lousy ritual array is about to break apart completely. Let’s see how much longer you can hold on!” Luo Tiange laughed in disdain.

Gu Hai raised his head to look at Luo Tiange.

“Don’t be too certain with your words. You cannot break my ritual array. What is the point of being so noisy?” Gu Hai retorted coldly.

“I will be breaking your ritual array soon. When that happens, I will kill you all. Listen up! I’ll offer you a chance. I will spare the one who takes down Gu Hai!” Luo Tiange shouted.

Was Luo Tiange trying to instigate the evil men to betray Gu Hai?

Gao Xianzhi, Chen Tianshan, Scar, and Shangguan Hen stood around Gu Hai, protecting him. They did not let anyone through. However, the evil men only turned restless for a while before ignoring Luo Tiange.

Gu Hai coldly eyed Luo Tiange, not showing any fear.

While Gu Hai paid attention to Luo Tiange, he also paid attention to the rubbish valley. He had purposely let the Flame Dragon Chains break into the ritual array near that place.

Crack! A crisp sound rang out unexpectedly in that direction.

“Milord, the barrier is broken!” Suddenly, a shout came from a secret place in the rubbish valley.

“What?” Meng Tai’s startled cry came from deep in the chasm. Clearly, he had not expected to walk into a trap.

Gu Hai’s eyes lit up. He had tricked Meng Tai into breaking the barrier.

Some joy appeared on Gu Hai’s face. Then, he turned his head to look at the sky before saying, “Pirate King Luo Tiange, many thanks for your cooperation. I no longer have time to play with you!”

“Huh?” Luo Tiange glowered. What does this mean?

Gu Hai waved his hand.

Boom!

Suddenly, surging white fog reappeared in the flaming ritual array. When the fog appeared, it covered up all the fires and extinguished them. Then, the ritual array recovered at a ridiculously fast speed.

Rumble…!

The instant the surging fog appeared, it forced back all the fires. The ritual array re-formed, and the fog looked even denser than before, encasing the surroundings.

Luo Tiange goggled in confusion.

The countless surrounding cultivators also appeared shocked.

“Gu Hai fooled Luo Tiange? That can’t be, right?”

“The scene of Luo Tiange breaking the ritual array was just a ruse?”

“That’s impossible, right? Wasn’t the ritual array on the verge of breaking earlier? How did it suddenly recover?”

The countless surrounding cultivators all looked confused.

------

Ninth Young Master’s face sank as well. “That’s impossible. The Heavenly Saber Death Match cannot possibly grow stronger. Gu Hai is only in the Innate Realm. An Innate Realm cultivator can bring out only so much power. How could it block the Flame Dragon Chains?”

“Could Gu Hai have reached the Golden Core Realm, allowing the Heavenly Saber Death Match to grow stronger?” a subordinate wondered.

“That’s impossible. Gu Hai is definitely still in the Innate Realm. How did the ritual array suddenly grow several times more powerful?” Ninth Young Master stood up, looking at the distant ritual array in shock.

------

Of course, the most depressed person was Luo Tiange.

Luo Tiange had behaved arrogantly all this while. However, after so long, he had just been an insignificant clown helping Gu Hai out?

What is in that valley? What barrier broke? Gu Hai used me?

“You bastard!” Luo Tiange yelled furiously.

The Flame Dragon Chains could not advance any farther. Luo Tiange raised his hand, and the Flame Dragon Chains flew up. Then, he swung his hand down, and the five chains lashed down like a whip.

Boom!

The five chains struck the ritual array. However, the ritual array remained as strong as before, not even shaking.

Luo Tiange’s eyes turned bloodshot. You clearly could block the Flame Dragon Chains, but you pretended that you could not. Do you think you can trick this great me and get away with it?

“You bastard! Gu Hai, you are dead for sure!” Luo Tiange roared indignantly.

Boom! Boom! Boom!

The five chains struck the ritual array with all their might, producing loud reports. The colossal impacts shook the surroundings.

“That’s enough. Luo Tiange, if you still don’t stop, then don’t blame me for being ruthless!” Gu Hai shouted coldly from the churning fog.

“Ruthless? Bring it on! Come on! You are just a tortoise hiding in its shell. If you have the ability, then bring it on!” Luo Tiange continued attacking in a fit of rage.

Boom! Boom! Boom!

“I have the strength to pick up mountains, and my might conquers the world!” A roar came from the ritual array.

Shing!

Suddenly, a colossal halberd thrust out from the ritual array. Moving at breakneck speed, this halberd chopped down on the Flame Dragon Chains.

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!

Five loud sounds rang out.

“Ah!”

Luo Tiange let out a miserable shriek. The halberd had broken the Flame Dragon Chains and sent them flying.

Bang!

The five broken chains fell on the ground. Luo Tiange’s consciousness was connected to the enchanted treasure. When it broke, his complexion immediately paled as he flew to a side.

It broke? The Flame Dragon Chains broke? How is this possible?

Luo Tiange was speechless. The surrounding cultivators gaped in shock. The Flame Dragon Chains broke? What is that halberd?

“I recall it now. Gu Hai showed this in the Innate Puzzle World. It’s his vast army?”

“This is his vast army?”

“The Twenty-Eight Line-Pair World Ritual Array!”

“This is no longer the Heavenly Saber Death Match; it is the Twenty-Eight Line-Pair World Ritual Array!”

This discovery caused a massive commotion in the surroundings. The people who had experienced the Twenty-Eight Line-Pair World Ritual Array immediately revealed shock and horror.

The Twenty-Eight Line-Pair World Ritual Array? That vast army was simply a nightmare. To think that Gu Hai could bring it out outside of the Innate Puzzle World using spirit stones.

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.
