Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 05 Chapter 124: One Million Soldiers Entering a Path of Reincarnation Secret Realm

Heavenly Court City:

Long Zhanguo could not calm himself for a long time after returning. He nearly managed to obtain the Asura Path Secret Realm. However, his efforts were wasted in the end.

During this time, Long Wanyu led Mo Yike to meet Long Zhanguo again.

“His Majesty sent this official to convey a message. His Majesty also feels disappointed at the outcome of the trip to the nether realm. It nearly succeeded, yet all our efforts went to waste,” Mo Yike said with a bitter smile.

“Has Gu Hai finished choosing the people he wants?” Long Zhanguo asked.

“This humble one was left in the heavenly court’s cities to choose people. Qian Heavenly Emperor, do be patient,” Mo Yike said seriously.

“We have told Gu Hai that time is limited. We cannot afford to waste any time,” Long Zhanguo said.

“Yes. His Majesty instructed this official to tell Qian Heavenly Emperor that be it the Human Path Secret Realm or running into the Asura Path Secret Realm in the nether realm today, His Majesty is already on the same side as Qian Heavenly Emperor. His Majesty is currently making preparations for Qian Heavenly Emperor’s matter and guarantees you that you will be satisfied,” Mo Yike said.

“Oh? Guarantees to satisfy us?” Long Zhanguo narrowed his eyes slightly.

“Yes. However, before that, His Majesty had me borrow money from Qian Heavenly Emperor,” Mo Yike said seriously.

“Borrow money?” Long Zhanguo appeared slightly surprised.

The Han Royal Dynasty has sixty cities. Those should bring in quite a lot of taxes. Is Gu Hai not satisfied with that?

“Yes. The Han Nation is short on spirit stones and requires the Qian Nation’s resources. The more spirit stones we have, the faster His Majesty can satisfy Qian Heavenly Emperor,” Mo Yike said.

Long Zhanguo narrowed his eyes slightly at Mo Yike.

Borderless Heavenly Capital:

At this moment, one million people had gathered in the ritual array within the restricted area. There were Han Nation soldiers, various officials, and some black-robed people standing respectfully at the side of the altar.

Gu Hai and the Unborn Man stood on the altar.

“Mister Unborn Man, today, the Han Royal Dynasty will establish the Lifespan Court with you as the minister in charge from now on. What do you think?” Gu Hai said as he looked at the Unborn Man.

“Lifespan Court? Hah! Alright!” The Unborn Man stared at Gu Hai with uncertainty in his eyes.

Gu Hai did not make the Unborn Man subordinate to him. Instead, their relationship was just like the national beast’s prime, Shangguan Hen. It was just an alliance. Gu Hai intended to take his time building relationships before establishing superiority. Right now, the most important thing was to bring the Unborn Man to the Han Royal Dynasty’s side.

“Gu Hai, Emperor Gu, what great means! What great means!” the Unborn Man said in shock after some silence.

The Unborn Man knew that had he not agreed to ally with the Han Royal Dynasty, Gu Hai would not have told him about this altar.

I worked myself to the bone to enter the Asura Path Secret Realm and failed. Yet, Gu Hai, a mere Nascent Soul Realm cultivator, managed to build the Asura Path Secret Realm’s entrance right in his backyard? Right here?

Before this, the Unborn Man would never have believed such a thing was possible.

How is this possible? How did he do it?

The Unborn Man did not ask Gu Hai, knowing Gu Hai would not tell him.

“Mister Unborn Man, you saw it for yourself previously. The asuras kill each other to plunder Soul Energy. However, this Soul Energy does not have much of an effect on cultivation. What exactly does it nourish?” Gu Hai asked.

“The increase in Soul Energy does have limited effects on cultivation. However, that requires the use of countless spirit stones. The nourishment of the physical body is just incidental. The most important thing is strengthening the foundation of the three spiritual souls,” the Unborn Man explained.

“Oh?”

“You cultivated with physical cultivation and later reached the Nascent Soul Realm. Do you feel anything different?”

“The physical body is a container. The stronger the physical body, the larger the container, and the more energy the nascent soul can contain. Just one of my nascent souls is equal to several nascent souls of others,” Gu Hai said.

“The Nascent Soul Realm cultivates the physical souls, while the Heavenly Palace Realm cultivates the spiritual souls. The same goes for the spiritual souls. Within the same Heavenly Palace Realm cultivation, there are stronger and weaker people. Why is that? It is because the energy contained in each heavenly palace is different. The stronger one’s Soul Energy is, the more energy a heavenly palace can contain. I heard that when the Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty’s Divine Blood Army returned, their soul bodies had the power of Heavenly Palace Realm cultivators, which was extremely extraordinary. All they lacked were time and opportunity. If they had managed to reclaim their bodies and had some time to make accumulations, they could have trampled on the world. Do you believe that?” the Unborn Man said.

“Oh?” Gu Hai narrowed his eyes slightly.

The Unborn Man suddenly reacted. “Wait! You got this from the Slaughter Heavenly Emperor?”

Gu Hai nodded.

“How capable! How capable of you!” The Unborn Man was only left with awe.

“That day, you said that every asura had a soul mark and that we would need some time to refine it. Otherwise, it would affect our mental state?” Gu Hai asked.

“That’s right. Entering for three months previously was already the limit. It would be best if each session lasted three months. Your Classic of the Dao and Virtue is the best scripture for calming down. Stop every three months and chant the Classic of the Dao and Virtue for one day, and it will be fine,” the Unborn Man explained.

“Once every three months. That’s fine.” Gu Hai nodded.

“However, Wanqing is in there. There are so many asuras. How do we find her?” the Unborn Man asked worriedly.

“Wanqing is a green asura. If we kill all the asuras except the green ones, that would be fine,” Gu Hai said.

“Are you crazy? The Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty spent six thousand years there and still did not manage to empty it. Do you think you can do that?” Naturally, the Unborn Man felt skeptical.

“It won’t take that long. I have a special method.” Gu Hai nodded.

“Huh?” The Unborn Man paused for a while. Then, he frowned and said, “However, can your physical bodies take it when you kill asuras and strengthen your Soul Energy? You can use spirit stones to nourish the physical body, but are there enough spirit stones in your Han Nation’s sixty cities?”

“Don’t worry. The spirit stones will keep coming.” Gu Hai nodded.

“Alright. Let’s hurry up and enter. Your one-million-strong army as well. Haha! The Slaughter Heavenly Dynasty had five million soldiers and killed only a small portion of asuras in six thousand years. You only have one million. Let’s see how you empty the Asura Path Secret Realm in such a short time,” the Unborn Man said.

“One million strong? You are wrong. We are two hundred million.” Gu Hai smiled.

“Huh?” The Unborn Man felt slightly startled.

Then, Gu Hai extended his hand and brought out many Soul Dividing Boxes, slowly laying them out around the altar.

“What are these?” The Unborn Man looked at these boxes, feeling puzzled.

“Separate your spiritual souls from your bodies!” Gu Hai shouted.

“Yes!” the one-million-strong army shouted.

Then, Gu Hai led his army to touch the blue energy ball.

Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!

Beams of blue light entered each body. Then, everyone sat down cross-legged with Gu Hai.

Buzz!

Everyone’s spiritual souls, including the Unborn Man’s, separated from their physical bodies.

The one million soldiers looked at the surroundings in surprise. As they looked at their bodies, they felt excited. However, they did not dare to say anything. They only looked respectfully at Gu Hai.

“A great dream raises the mind, bringing one to all places of the world. The spiritual souls travel, and the mind fixes on the heavenly mysteries!” Gu Hai suddenly shouted.

The Unborn Man and the others felt confused. Then, they saw the one thousand Soul Dividing Boxes on the altar give off dazzling, colorful light. There seemed to be more than two hundred colors, but no one could make out exactly what colors.

“What are these boxes? I feel my spiritual souls trembling,” the Unborn Man exclaimed.

“Form groups of one thousand. Then, do as we do, step into a box!” Gu Hai said.

As Gu Hai spoke, his soul body entered one of the Soul Dividing Boxes.

Buzz! Clack!

After Gu Hai’s soul body entered, that Soul Dividing Box closed.

Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! The Soul Dividing Box vibrated.

Everyone goggled.

Clack! The Soul Dividing Box opened while vibrating, releasing a colorful light.

Buzz! Gu Hai’s soul body walked out of that Soul Dividing Box.

“Nothing seems to have changed?” The Unborn Man looked at Gu Hai’s soul body in surprise.

However, the Unborn Man gaped in the next moment. Another soul body walked out of that Soul Dividing Box.

This set the entire plaza abuzz.

Another emperor? How can that be? Another one? Exactly the same?

The one million soldiers felt incredibly shocked, as did the Unborn Man.

The Unborn Man exclaimed, “That’s impossible. Your three spiritual souls are still together. This is not a splitting of the three spiritual souls. How did you—”

Buzz!

Before the Unborn Man could finish, a third soul body walked out from the box.

Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!

More Gu Hais walked out from the Soul Dividing Box. The minds of the many soldiers seeing this could not keep up.

Two hundred His Majesties? How did he do that? How is it possible?

The Unborn Man stared at Gu Hai in incredulity, unable to calm himself for a long time. However, the facts were as such. There were two hundred identical Gu Hais.

“Hurry up!” the two hundred Gu Hais shouted at nearly the same time.

“Yes!” the one million soldiers immediately responded loudly.

Earlier, Gu Hai had commanded them to form groups of one thousand. Now, they started pouring into the Soul Dividing Boxes.

Clack! Buzz! Clack!

The number of soul bodies increased at a horrifying rate. One went in, two hundred came out. For every soul body that went in, two hundred came out.

The Unborn Man finally accepted what was happening before him. He now looked at Gu Hai with a strange gaze. Had it been before, he would never have thought of this possibility. Why is this Gu Hai so singular?

The Unborn Man followed the rest. Indeed, he also became two hundred soul bodies after coming out.

There really were two hundred million soul bodies in the blink of an eye.

“Let’s go!” the two hundred Gu Hais called out simultaneously.

“Yes!”

Rumble…!

The two hundred million soldiers went into the portal and entered the Asura Secret Realm.

When the two hundred million soul bodies entered, a surging black storm kicked up over the Slaughter Divine Palace, covering the two hundred million soul bodies and spreading out in all directions.

Rumble…!

The two hundred million soul bodies turned into asuras in the blink of an eye.

A horde of asuras stood guard outside the Slaughter Divine Palace’s barrier. A large asura army had gathered there, ready to kill the asuras that came out of the Slaughter Divine Palace.

Over a hundred thousand asuras showed ferocious expressions.

“They are coming!” one of the asuras cried out, pleasantly surprised.

The various asuras felt surging battle hunger. However, their expressions soon changed.

This was because of the surging black energy gathering. The number of asuras in the barrier skyrocketed. One hundred thousand? That’s about the same as our side.

One million? Ten times our numbers?

Ten million? One hundred times our numbers?

It’s still increasing? How can that be possible?

One hundred million? That is one thousand times our numbers!

The asuras felt somewhat stupefied.

“It’s still increasing. How can this be? How can this be increasing? This time, there is even more than the Divine Blood Demon Army!” one of the asuras exclaimed.

“Run!” one of the asuras yelled in horror.

Rumble…!

The one hundred thousand asuras surrounding Gu Hai and preparing to attack him started running away while shouting in a panic, horrified.

Killing one is fine, but I have to kill one thousand? What a joke!

Rumble…!

Before Gu Hai’s entire army had entered the Asura Path Secret Realm, the asuras had already fled.

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.
