Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 05 Chapter 176: Never Return without the Target’s Head!

Lu Ya?

Gu Hai’s pupils suddenly constricted as he stood up.

Who was Lu Ya? He was the Eastern Monarch’s sixth son, the strongest crown prince of the Solar Divine Palace. His Immortal Slaying Flying Saber was famous worldwide. It never missed its target. When the saber appeared, a head would fall. Even within the Solar Divine Palace, he was a legendary expert.

Yehua and Yanxuan seemed to see their savior, crying out for rescue. However, some fear also appeared in their eyes. Clearly, they feared Lu Ya.

When Lu Ya suddenly arrived, Ao Shun’s expression changed, and he immediately shielded Gu Hai. Ao Shun showed an uncertain expression, as he knew how strong Lu Ya was.

Lu Ya glanced at the flying ship, ignoring Yehua’s and Yanxuan’s cries for help. Instead, he looked past everyone to focus on Gu Hai.

“Gu Hai? This crown prince has put in a lot of effort to find you!” Lu Ya said coldly.

“He is looking for you? You truly have enemies all over the world!” The Mosquito Daoist looked at Gu Hai with some surprise.

Gu Hai showed a faint, bitter smile before turning to Lu Ya.

“Crown Prince Lu Ya, why are you looking for this humble one?” Gu Hai kept his guard up as he looked at Lu Ya.

“Come with me,” Lu Ya said indifferently.

“Oh? Why?” Gu Hai asked.

Lu Ya revealed a faint, cold smile. “There is no why. Come with me now. Otherwise, this crown prince will not guarantee your safety.”

Due to Lu Ya’s pride and disdain for Gu Hai, he did not explain anything to Gu Hai. He just looked at Gu Hai coldly and commanded him.

“Oh? You want to bring me away, not kill me?” Gu Hai’s tone turned cold.

“That’s right. This crown prince has been chasing after you since the Solar Divine Palace. Don’t bother hoping to escape; you can’t,” Lu Ya said coldly.

Gu Hai narrowed his eyes slightly as he said with a cold smile, “You are that confident?”

“Should I kill everyone here first to prove that?” Lu Ya said with a cold expression.

Ao Shun showed an unsightly expression as he whispered to Gu Hai, “Hall Master, Lu Ya’s strength is difficult to determine. Although he is the sixth crown prince, he is the leader of the Eastern Monarch’s ten crown princes. This subordinate once chased after an animal spirit king for ten days and ten nights. That spirit king fled to where Lu Ya was and offended him. After that, Lu Ya’s Immortal Slaying Flying Saber chopped off his head.”

Gu Hai’s face sank. Ao Shun’s meaning was obvious. An animal spirit king who was as strong as Ao Shun could not last even one move against Lu Ya. Lu Ya was extremely strong.

“Mister Mosquito Daoist, can you take Lu Ya’s head?” Gu Hai suddenly smiled as he looked at the Mosquito Daoist.

“Huh?” Lu Ya suddenly raised his eyebrows.

Lu Ya maintained a cold, proud expression when Ao Shun described him. This is strength, my pride. It is good that Ao Shun explained. This should allow Gu Hai to wise up early. To think that Gu Hai asked the person next to him whether that person could take his head? How reckless!

Lu Ya narrowed his eyes and turned to look at the Mosquito Daoist.

“Ptooey!”

The Mosquito Daoist spat out the wine that he had just drunk.

“Gu Hai, this is not right. He came seeking trouble for you, but you pushed it on to me?” the Mosquito Daoist said somewhat unhappily.

“You are the Mosquito Daoist? Why are you with Gu Hai?” Lu Ya narrowed his eyes.

“I was just asking whether it would be easy to take Lu Ya’s head with your strength.” Gu Hai smiled.

The Mosquito Daoist’s expression turned unsightly. “Don’t bring trouble to me. This little golden crow is difficult to deal with, but his father is the truly ridiculous one. I don’t want to attract trouble from the Supreme Singularity.”

“That’s good.” Gu Hai nodded. He had received the answer he wanted.

Lu Ya stared at the Mosquito Daoist, clearly aware of the Mosquito Daoist’s infamy.

“Humph!” Lu Ya snorted coldly. He did not fear the notorious Mosquito Daoist.

“Gu Hai, have you thought it through? Should I start with Ao Shun?” Lu Ya said coldly.

Ao Shun’s expression changed.

“Crown Prince Lu Ya, is there a misunderstanding between us? Why must you bring me away?” Gu Hai asked.

“You don’t need to know. You will understand when the time comes,” Lu Ya said coldly.

“Oh? It looks like it is a secret, so I won’t ask again. However, I am curious. How did you find me?” Gu Hai asked.

Lu Ya looked at Gu Hai and showed a faint, cold smile without answering.

The Mosquito Daoist said indifferently, “Gu Hai, perhaps you have something in Lu Ya’s hand?”

“Oh?” Gu Hai looked at the Mosquito Daoist.

“There are many animal spirit techniques in this world that can track down a person using their hair, blood, skin, and even their remnant aura. Most animal spirit kings talented in tracking have such abilities. The Solar Divine Palace is the gathering place of all sorts of animal spirits. He is a crown prince of that place. It would not be hard for him to find such an animal spirit technique. Take me, for example; I can find you using the smell of your blood,” the Mosquito Daoist explained.

“The smell of blood?” Gu Hai marveled as he looked at the Mosquito Daoist.

“Indeed. The smell of human blood is different for every person. You will leave a trace of your blood’s smell wherever you go. It would be easy for me to find you unless you are extremely far away from me,” the Mosquito Daoist explained.

Gu Hai looked at the Mosquito Daoist in amazement.

“Is there any way to hide from such tracking?” Gu Hai asked, feeling curious.

The Mosquito Daoist looked at Gu Hai in bafflement. You are already so strong. Why do you want to hide?

However, since Gu Hai asked, the Mosquito Daoist did not hold any information back. “I have a Concealing Pearl that can hide all aura within three meters of you. As long as you carry it, no tracking animal spirit technique can find you.”

“Humph!” Lu Ya snorted coldly.

Gu Hai looked at the Concealing Pearl in the Mosquito Daoist’s hand and asked, “It is hard to obtain?”

“Not really. It is not a powerful treasure, just a trinket that grows in a concealment-type animal spirit. However, since this animal spirit is already extinct, there is only a limited number of these Concealing Pearls in the world. I can lend it to you to have a look.” The Mosquito Daoist held out the blue pearl.

“I won’t stand on ceremony, then.” Gu Hai extended his hand and received the pearl.

Buzz!

Gu Hai immediately felt a strange aura on the surface of his body. A layer of blue light extended three meters from his body.

“It is indeed wondrous.” Marvel flashed in Gu Hai’s eyes.

“Now that you’ve seen it, please return it.” The Mosquito Daoist extended his hand for the Concealing Pearl.

No matter what treasure it was, the Mosquito Daoist would not selflessly give it away.

Gu Hai pulled his right hand into his sleeves.

Crack!

Suddenly, a crisp sound came from Gu Hai’s sleeves, and the blue light immediately disappeared.

“Gu Hai, why did you break my Concealing Pearl?!” the Mosquito Daoist immediately demanded angrily.

“Mister Mosquito Daoist, you misunderstand. I did not do that,” Gu Hai said with a smile.

Gu Hai shook his right hand, and his hand emerged from his sleeve. The vanished blue light covered Gu Hai once more. Then, he returned the Concealing Pearl.

The Mosquito Daoist snatched the Concealing Pearl back and carefully examined it. Fortunately, nothing had happened to it.

“What was that earlier?” The Mosquito Daoist looked at Gu Hai with surprise flashing in his eyes.

Then, Gu Hai suddenly looked at Lu Ya.

“Crown Prince Lu Ya, I asked you what this was about, but you refused to say. Since that is the case, please leave. I won’t be going with you,” Gu Hai said.

Lu Ya narrowed his eyes at Gu Hai. “You don’t have a choice today!”

“Oh?” Gu Hai looked at Lu Ya, keeping his guard up.

“Treasure, please turn around!” Lu Ya shouted coldly.

The Mosquito Daoist narrowed his eyes and immediately moved away. Although he did not fear Lu Ya, he did not want to get involved in their battle.

Shing!

The lid of the large yellow calabash on Lu Ya’s back opened. Then, a beam of white light shot out.

When the white light appeared, it instantly lit up the surroundings and streaked towards Ao Shun.

“Excellent!” Yehua cried out happily.

“The Immortal Slaying Flying Saber!” Ao Shun’s expression changed. Then, a sword immediately appeared in his hand, and he swung it.

However, the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber was too powerful. It cut Ao Shun’s sword in half nearly instantaneously and continued towards Ao Shun’s neck without slowing down.

“Vine!” Gu Hai shouted decisively.

Boom!

Suddenly, a vine yanked Ao Shun to Gu Hai’s side. Then, an azure calabash appeared on Gu Hai’s back. Millions of vines erupted from the calabash and wrapped around the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber zooming over.

Rumble…!

The vine-wrapped Immortal Slaying Flying Saber stopped.

“The Vine World Calabash?” Lu Ya revealed a cold smile.

“Indeed. It is the Vine World Calabash, which grew on the same vine as the Immortal Slaying Calabash! However, it seems like Gu Hai still cannot use the Vine World Calabash at its full power. The vines seemed to be…” The Mosquito Daoist appeared somewhat surprised.

“It is not that he cannot bring out its full power. Even if he could, it would be useless. The Immortal Slaying Calabash is metal-attributed while the Vine World Calabash is wood-attributed. Metal counters wood. Treasure, please turn around!” Lu Ya shouted coldly.

Boom!

The millions of vines instantly got cut apart. Then, the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber flew towards Gu Hai even faster.

“Immortal Slaying Flying Saber, never miss the target and never return without the target’s head. Chop!” Lu Ya glared.

Boom! The Immortal Slaying Flying Saber immediately accelerated.

“Hall Master, be careful!” Ao Shun cried out.

The Immortal Slaying Flying Saber had been flying towards Ao Shun, but Gu Hai had gone forward to clash with it. Lu Ya narrowed his eyes.

Then, Gu Hai waved.

Whoosh!

A red calabash suddenly appeared in Gu Hai’s hand. Its lid opened as he aimed it at the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber.

Boom!

The red calabash sucked in the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber. Surging red flames came out of the mouth of the red calabash, sweeping towards Lu Ya.

“What is that? It trapped the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber?” the Mosquito Daoist said in shock.

“The Eight Trigram Furnace, True Flame Calabash?” Lu Ya narrowed his eyes.

[TL Note: The calabash used to create the Eight Trigram Furnace was called the Eight Trigram Calabash. However, the author started calling this calabash the True Flame Calabash from here on. It is possible that this was the original name of the Eight Trigram Calabash, and it got changed after it underwent some enchanting or forging.]

“You are right. Metal counters wood, so your Immortal Slaying Calabash counters the Vine World Calabash. However, I have the True Flame Calabash with the Samādhi True Flame. Fire counters metal. Watch as I use my Samādhi True Flame to melt your Immortal Slaying Flying Saber,” Gu Hai said, his eyes going cold.

“Doesn’t the Eight Trigram Furnace belong to the Myriad Age Daoist Sect? How…” Greed immediately flashed in the Mosquito Daoist’s eyes.

Boom! Lu Ya extended his hand and pushed away the Samādhi True Flame heading for him.

“Humph! Fire counters metal? You are overthinking. My Immortal Slaying Flying Saber is no longer just metal-attributed. This crown prince has used the Solar True Flame to temper it. Would it fear your Samādhi True Flame? Since you are seeking death, I’ll just bring your head back with me.” Lu Ya glared.

“Huh?” Gu Hai’s face sank, feeling the True Flame Calabash in his hand trembling.

“Immortal Slaying Flying Saber, never miss the target and never return without the target’s head. Chop!” Lu Ya’s eyes turned cold.

Boom!

A loud sound rang out as a crack opened at the bottom of the True Flame Calabash in Gu Hai’s hand. The Immortal Slaying Flying Saber immediately flew out and shot towards Gu Hai’s face.

Whoosh!

It looked like the Immortal Slaying Flying Saber would strike Gu Hai’s head.

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.
