Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 04 Chapter 071: Imperial Emperor Xi Yu

When Gu Hai drew the Life Executioner Saber, purple light filled the sky. As he swung the saber down at Qin Zibai, nine dragon-like lightning bolts roared.

“Cycle Saber Technique…Third Cycle!” 

The two hundred saber qi gathered in the Life Executioner Saber, and a destructive force surged towards Qin Zibai, who was in the way.

“What?” Qin Zibai’s expression suddenly changed as he tried to clash with his sword.

Qin Zibai was in the early stage of the Middle Heavenly Palace Realm, possessing great power. However, Gu Hai had torn “Bring in the Wine,” causing his strength to rise considerably. The strong force, along with the Life Executioner Saber’s destructive aura, exploded Qin Zibai’s sword when it clashed.

Boom!

The dazzling purple light was so piercing that it blinded the surrounding Yuan Nation officials.

Mo Yike appeared worried.

The vampires wanted to rush over, but Chang Sheng firmly blocked them.

Archduke Xi Kang appeared anxious.

Boom!

The electric light exploded and scattered.

Gu Hai remained where he was. However, the clash sent Qin Zibai flying back.

Qin Zibai’s sword completely shattered, and his clothes were in tatters, revealing the armor he wore underneath. Countless breaks were visible on the armor, with blood leaking out from them.

“Cough! Cough! Cough!”

Qin Zibai held his chest as he lay on a distant mountain summit. He goggled in horror as he looked at Gu Hai.

Previously…previously, Gu Hai could not do anything to me at Chaoge City. Now, he can defeat me with his own strength? 

Qin Zibai felt that his current wounds were even worse than when the blood dragon in Dragon Vein City tried to digest him. He slumped to the ground, no longer able to battle.

“Milord!”

A group of officials immediately rushed over in horror.

The expression of Li Shenji, who was facing the Bat Ancestor, also changed. Now, he looked at Gu Hai in horror.

“‘Bring in the Wine’? How much has it strengthened you?” Li Shenji exclaimed.

------

In a small courtyard in the city:

Sima Changkong and Long Shenji goggled at each other.

“Qin Zibai? He is a Middle Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator, albeit only in the early stage, yet Gu Hai could do that with his own strength? How incredible is that ‘Bring in the Wine’? To think that it gave him such great strength!” Sima Changkong exclaimed.

“That’s not right. Gu Hai does not seem to have used his full power.” Long Shenwu’s eyes narrowed.

------

Back in the scene:

Gu Hai defeated Qin Zibai with one saber strike, then gave him a cold look. Indeed, Gu Hai had not used his full power.

After the noble spirit poured into his body, unprecedented energy filled his entire body; he felt like he could even execute the Fourth Cycle. However, he did not do so earlier.

Gu Hai could tell that Qin Zibai rushed over after the Bat Ancestor called out because Qin Zibai wanted to stop Gu Hai, not kill him.

Perhaps it was to repay the gratitude from Dragon Vein City.

After all, the Bat Ancestor was so strong that anyone who faced him would die. By stopping Gu Hai, Qin Zibai could be considered to have saved Gu Hai.

However, Bing Ji was currently trapped and was about to fall to the Bat Ancestor. How could Gu Hai leave her be?

If Gu Hai ignored Bing Ji’s peril, who would dare to serve him in the future?

Gu Hai did not bother wasting time on Qin Zibai, simply sending him flying with a saber strike.

Then, his figure flashed, and he arrived where the Bat Ancestor’s third hand was.

“Huh?” The Bat Ancestor’s expression turned cold.

“Third Cycle!”

Buzz!

Piercing purple light filled the world as Gu Hai swung his saber again.

“Humph! Just you? You are far from enough. My ‘Bring in the Wine’? Gu Hai, if you do not write me a poem of the same level, I’ll eat you!” the Bat Ancestor said with a ferocious expression.

Boom!

A large amount of electricity exploded the Bat Ancestor’s third hand amid the purple light.

“Your Majesty, don’t!” Bing Ji appeared anxious.

Only Bing Ji understood how strong the Bat Ancestor was.

Back then, Bing Ji only managed to injure him at the Solar Divine Palace after using the Cross Annihilation, one of the top sixteen ancient treasures. Even so, he managed to flee.

The Bat Ancestor had not used his full power yet. Bing Ji believed that Gu Hai could not save her. Gu Hai would even get implicated.

However, Gu Hai still rushed over with determination.

When seeing Gu Hai’s ferocious expression, Bing Ji, who was in the ice ball, felt stunned.

Even though he knows that he cannot defeat the Bat Ancestor, he still risked his life to come and save me? Bing Ji never thought that something like that would happen to her. After all the mutual deception in the Solar Divine Palace, Bing Ji’s heart had already turned stone cold.

However, Gu Hai’s ferocious appearance seemed to send an arrow piercing into her heart. Her stone-cold heart suddenly skipped a beat.

Boom!

An extremely loud report rang out.

The electricity exploded, taking most of the Bat Ancestor’s third hand along with it.

Buzz!

Bing Ji’s ice ball immediately escaped the Bat Ancestor’s grip.

The third hand that exploded promptly turned into countless bats that flew away from the electricity.

“Oh? Third Cycle? So what if you can break my fake hand? You can’t even completely shatter a fake hand. Furthermore, I have more than one!” the Bat Ancestor said with a ferocious expression.

Screech! Screech! Screech! Screech! Screech! Screech!

Suddenly, the bats filling the sky screeched and charged back at Gu Hai and Bing Ji, who was still in her ice ball.

“Your Majesty, come in!” Bing Ji’s expression changed.

The ice ball immediately shattered, and a new one formed, encasing Gu Hai and Bing Ji.

Gu Hai entered the ice ball. However, his face sank.

The Third Cycle? That was a move that could defeat even Qin Zibai in one blow, yet it could only destroy a part of the Bat Ancestor’s third hand?

“Your Majesty, you should not have come!” Bing Ji said bitterly.

“Since you joined the Han Nation, you are our Han Nation’s person. We have a duty to protect you!” Gu Hai said.

After saying that, Gu Hai ignored the suddenly silent Bing Ji and watched the countless bats charging over.

As the bats swarmed over, they reformed the huge third hand.

No. It was not just one. Instead, there were eight—a third, a fourth, a fifth…a tenth. 

The eight hands formed by the bats possessed the same level of power as the one before. They rushed towards the ice ball from all directions, sealing off all paths of escape.

“Humph! You overestimate yourself. Since you want to accompany this loathsome lass, then don’t blame me for this! Humph!” the Bat Ancestor snorted coldly.

“Brother-in-Law!” Long Wanyu suddenly roared from the distant flying ship.

“Don’t!” Fairy Waner, who was in the city, also exclaimed as she sped out of the city.

Just one fake hand could produce so much power. Now, there were eight. Was it over for Gu Hai?

In the city, the many citizens also goggled. The calligraphy Dao cultivators who worshiped Gu Hai exclaimed as well.

How could the Bat Ancestor do this?

The Yuan Nation officials’ expression changed. However, now that the Bat Ancestor had attacked, they did not know what to do.

Archduke Xi Kang turned ashen. This fiasco had gone too far already.

Mo Yike’s expression changed. He wanted to stop this, but no one could stop the Bat Ancestor.

Right now, the Bat Ancestor was enraged, and he had no regard for the law. Who could stop him?

------

In the city, Sima Changkong and Long Shenwu stared at the scene in the sky.

“Prince, you said that Gu Hai did not use his full power earlier? Is there still hope?” Sima Changkong asked worriedly.

Long Shenwu nodded and said, “Given the level of the noble spirit from ‘Bring in the Wine,’ his increase in strength should not be that little. Gu Hai must be holding back.”

“I hope so,” Sima Changkong said worriedly as he looked at the scene.

------

Li Shenji blocked the Bat Ancestor’s left palm with his sword. When he saw the eight palms surrounding Gu Hai, some anticipation flashed in his eyes.

Inside the ice ball, Bing Ji revealed an expression of despair.

However, Gu Hai’s expression turned cold. He gripped his Life Executioner Saber tightly and suddenly pushed off with his feet.

Boom!

All at once, an even stronger saber qi domain than earlier ripped out of the ice ball, forming a Go Dao saber domain.

Gu Hai’s expression turned icy as he prepared to execute the Fourth Cycle.

------

In the Great Sigh Palace Hall, where the imperial court was held, Major Metropolitan City:

When Gu Hai ripped “Bring in the Wine” apart, the Great Sigh Palace Hall’s doors suddenly opened.

Creak!

The surrounding guards’ expressions changed. They immediately stopped paying attention to the battle outside the city to bow respectfully towards the Great Sigh Palace Hall.

“Your Reverence, congratulations on coming out of closed-door cultivation!” the guards said respectfully.

Whoosh!

An icy storm burst out of the Great Sigh Palace Hall, the plaza in front immediately frosting over. White snow covered the guards.

Thud!

A fur boot emerged from the doors.

A man wearing white fur robes slowly stepped out. Dragons were embroidered on the white fur robes with golden thread, presenting an extremely clean look.

This man looked handsome. He had his long hair tied together with a golden string. He appeared calm, his eyes like deep, bottomless pools.

White snow drifted everywhere as the white-fur-imperial-robed man slowly entered the plaza.

“Salutations, Your Reverence!” the guards greeted respectfully.

Your Reverence? Only one person had this address in the Yuan Imperial Dynasty: the master of the Yuan Nation, Imperial Emperor Xi Yu.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu had his hands tucked in the opposing sleeves. He did not look up at the sky. Instead, he turned to the north, able to clearly make out the scene directly.

“He ripped ‘Bring in the Wine’ just like that? What a pity!” Imperial Emperor Xi Yu sighed softly.

The surrounding guards did not dare to interject.

The battle outside the city intensified. The Bat Ancestor even used eight fake hands to attack the ice ball that Gu Hai and Bing Ji were in.

Gu Hai was about to execute the Fourth Cycle.

Imperial Emperor Xi Yu remained silent for a while before finally taking action.

He extended his left index finger and gently pointed to the distance.

Whoosh!

A beam of white light shot out of his finger, transcending time and space as it rushed out of the Great Sigh Palace Hall’s entrance, out of Major Metropolitan City, and continued to Five Sacred Mountains Academy.

Everywhere the white light passed, boundless ice and snow drifted down from the sky.

Featherlike snow suddenly filled Five Sacred Mountains Academy’s surroundings.

Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack!

Nearly all the bats in the surroundings instantly froze.

A transparent index finger manifested in the icy region and flicked downwards.

Boom! Boom! Boom!

The index finger flicked at the three battles that the Bat Ancestor took part in, nearly simultaneously.

One flick knocked Li Shenji back three hundred meters, causing him to change his expression.

“Argh!”

“Argh!”

The index finger sent the two giants—Purple Subtlety and Longevity—flying back.

Gu Hai’s and Bing Ji’s expressions changed as the finger sent them back as well.

It did the same to the Bat Ancestor. The eight false hands exploded, and the Bat Ancestor flew three hundred meters before coming to a stop.

“Huh?” The Bat Ancestor’s expression changed.

Despite the ferocious battle, one finger managed to separate all of them?

“Bat Ancestor, these are honored guests of the Yuan Nation. You are being rude!” A voice echoed in Five Sacred Mountains Academy’s surroundings amid the vast snow.

Novel Notes

Hi everyone! How are you all doing? Anyway, I'm here to ask for some help today. I recently discovered another grammar checker tool called prowritingaid and am switching over from Grammarly Premium to that cause it's been pretty buggy on my google docs. Anyway, apparently, Prowritingaid has a referral program that can help me save costs. If I can get ten people to sign up for FREE accounts and edit using it for a bit, they will give me a free one-year premium license, and if I get twenty people, that's a lifetime license. I do plan to pay for the premium (likely lifetime), but I wanna try and save costs at this moment, esp since the income coming from translating is not good at the moment, and I'm still running on savings.

So I am now asking that you help me out by signing up and using it for a bit (You will need to test out some text, otherwise the referral will not count. Just copy in maybe a long document and go through some of their edits.). Here is my referral link. https://prowritingaid.com/grammar-checker?rafid=moVYZ

You can also request for a free 2 week trial for the premium here: https://prowritingaid.com/en/App/RequestTrial

Here's a little incentive to help me out too, if you can prove that you have signed up (You can show me a screenshot on discord), I'll give you 500 Dragon Scales 🐉, which is equal to a one chapter patreon access for one month.
