Chapter 956: Chuan Country Jade Seal
“There’s no misunderstanding. Let’s fight first.”
Mo Wen did not want to listen to State Preceptor Fang’s nonsense. His main purpose for creating trouble was to find a Primordial Soul Realm cultivator to test his ability, not just because he couldn’t stand the doings of Fengyu Country.
After the battle with Yao Yu, Mo Qingtian said that normal Primordial Soul Realm cultivators in the preliminary stage were no longer his match. Yao Yu was someone even harder to deal with than normal Primordial Soul Realm cultivators, while Mo Wen was not just a cultivator in the preliminary stage of the Primordial Soul Realm in terms of various aspects such as power, energy, martial arts teachings, secret methods, treasures, and realm, he could not be compared to the cultivators of the early days.
Due to what Mo Qingtian had said, Mo Wen wanted to see if he or State Preceptor Fang was stronger. Undoubtedly, State Preceptor Fang was the most common type of cultivator among the Primordial Soul Realm cultivators in the preliminary stage.
The spear became invisible before heading mercilessly towards State Preceptor Fang at the speed of lightning. With the use of the esoteric rule for thunder, there was no way for Fang Zhengxiang to hide.
Since the speed was so fast, Fang Zhengxiang barely managed to block the shadow of the Heavenly Serpent Divine Spear and was thrown a hundred meters away.
“What a terrifying force! His skill is way above mine. Is he not a cultivator who just entered the Primordial Soul Realm?”
After being flung by Mo Wen again, Fang Zhengxiang was appalled. He was no match for the young man in terms of power. And his power just seemed off–it felt different from the usual spiritual power. That power seemed to have both attributes of yin and yang. Just exerting a small amount of that power, was enough to offset part of his power, reducing his 10% power to 8%.
The two mutualizing and ceaseless attributes, yin and yang, sounded familiar, but they were hard to recall at that moment.
Fang Zhengxiang frowned. This type of special power also existed in Peng Lai Immortal Realm, where the special or secret techniques were built upon the foundation of spiritual power to practice a more powerful form of energy–one that was based on spiritual power and yet of a higher level. However, it was not easy to learn, and he was also not qualified. So he thought the young man must come from a strong background, most likely from Hades Mountain.
State Preceptor Fang groaned inwardly. If he had known that Hades Mountain was involved, he would not have come to the border of the two countries so aggressively but rather given up the trip to the south. Because the young man’s fighting skills were incredible, he had a dilemma, and he didn’t want to let the young man go.
After exchanging punches, Mo Wen was already clearly aware of Fang Zhengxiang’s ability. In terms of overall fighting capacity, Fang Zhengxiang was inferior. He didn’t even release the power of the Heavenly Serpent Divine Spear and only used it as an ordinary divine weapon in the earlier battle. If he had released the power of the spiritual treasure, State Preceptor Fang might have already sustained serious injuries.
“As expected, the ability of a normal Primordial Soul Realm cultivator in the preliminary stage is still slightly lacking.”
Mo Wen shook his head. State Preceptor Fang’s abilities were far below Devilshart’s. Of course, Mo Wen did not underestimate the ability of cultivators from the preliminary stage of the Primordial Soul Realm. Some special cultivators could be powerful. Even Devilshart, who had yet to reach the Primordial Soul Realm, was stronger than he was. He was just comparing the average cultivators in the preliminary stage of the Primordial Soul Realm.
Mo Wen missed the fact that normal martial art practitioners and immortal cultivators were not on the same level as Primordial Soul Realm cultivators. Before entering the Primordial Soul Realm, the two already had an insurmountable gap. Even an ordinary Infinite Powerhouse could not be compared with Primordial Soul Realm cultivators in the preliminary stage. Mo Wen was perverted and a special case. With his present abilities, he was no longer just a normal cultivator.
The complete primordial soul, which he mastered, had much stronger powers than normal Primordial Soul Realm cultivators due to the remarkable power from Divine Soul Trillion Layers. The stronger the primordial soul, the stronger its power for controlling and attacking. The same move performed by a stronger primordial soul would also be more lethal.
He had mastered Yin Yang Qi, a power stronger than normal spiritual powers. As compared to normal Primordial Soul Realm cultivators, his power was still a notch higher.
Besides, ever since Mo Wen had mastered Celestial Body, the changes that he experienced in his body had reached incredible heights, where every gesture contained spectacular power.
Even though he was not yet a Primordial Soul Realm cultivator, he was capable of intimidating normal Primordial Soul Realm cultivators with his ability.
“Such capabilities for a country’s State Preceptor. If you still don’t deploy other techniques, you would lose,” Mo Wen said calmly.
The results of the first battle with a Primordial Soul Realm cultivator was disappointing. At the same time, he also understood that he didn’t need to fear normal Primordial Soul Realm cultivators from the preliminary stage, but he wasn’t sure what might happen if he were to encounter one from the intermediate stage. At the Primordial Soul Realm, the gap between each level got larger and larger. One Primordial Soul Realm cultivator in the intermediate stage could easily defeat five from the preliminary stage.
State Preceptor Fang’s face turned somber while weighing the pros and cons in his mind. He wanted to withdraw, but the young man was obviously not prepared to let him off.
“You’re a demon from the Hades Mountain, yet battling with me here openly. Aren’t you afraid of strong practitioners from Huatian Palace coming after you?”
If demons from the heretic path were to stir trouble, the Huatian Palace would be the first to rush over to slay them. This world was filled with spies from the Huatian Palace, and someone might have already informed the Huatian Palace of the news of his battle with the young man.
“I have more than enough time to kill you before anyone from Huatian Palace arrives.” Mo Wen sneered.
“Seems like you’re not prepared to let me go.” State Preceptor Fang took a deep breath. Fighting with someone from the Hades Mountain was against his will, but he had no other options if the other party was not going to let him go. Although Fengyu Country might be exterminated by the petty Hades Mountain, cultivators of his level value their lives more than anything else.
As long as he was alive, it did not matter if Fengyu Country was exterminated. At the thought of this, Fang Zhengxiang stopped holding himself back and prepared to give his all in the battle.
“If that’s the case, then don’t blame me.” State Preceptor Fang drew in a deep breath. His original intention was to kill the young man on the spot.
With a solemn face, he took out something that looked like a Jade Seal from his sleeve. A vivid Qilin was carved on the Jade Seal. The object looked ordinary on the surface, but one would find it unfathomable upon careful observation.
“The Qilin Jade Seal! That’s the Qilin Jade Seal from Fengyu Country.”
A series of exclamations could be heard on the watchtower. Everyone stared at the Qilin Jade Seal in the hands of State Preceptor Fang.
“To think that State Preceptor Fang brought along the Qilin Jade Seal. He must have had the intention of killing the young man long ago.”
Zhang Huishan was secretly in a panic. A country’s jade seal is an important weapon to a nation, but countries in the Peng Lai Immortal Realm viewed it as the most important national treasure that contained millennia of luck. Even as countries rose and fell, the jade seal did not change. Over the years, the country’s destiny amassed in the jade seal became stronger and stronger.
The Qilin Jade Seal from Fengyu Country had a millennium of history, far older than Xiping Country. Normal Primordial Soul Realm cultivators in the preliminary stage could hardly withstand the country’s destiny power contained in this object. Compared to the Demonic Corpse State Master, the Qilin Jade Seal was the most valued treasure of Fengyu Country.
Seemingly to have felt something, Mo Wen squinted and gazed at the Qilin Jade Seal on State Preceptor Fang’s hands. He felt a mysterious and immense power that was hard to comprehend, which posed a great fear and a great threat.
“Chuan Country Jade Seal! The rumor that a cultivator country can cultivate the jade seal with its destiny is actually true.”
Mo Wen became solemn. Cultivating the jade seal with destiny was a rumor that he had heard about a long time ago. In some cultivator countries, where practicing was a trend, if the cultivators had a strong sense of belonging for the country, Essence Qi emitted while they were practicing and would amass and transmit into the Chuan Country Jade Seal. After some time, the seal would have collected a country’s destiny. The longer the period, the scarier and more evil it became.
“I didn’t plan to use the Chuan Country Jade Seal at first, but you forced me.”
State Preceptor Fang gradually revealed a hideous look while staring at Mo Wen. He knew that he might cause a disaster to the Fengyu Country after this, but he had no other options at the moment. Originally, he brought along the Chuan Country Jade Seal only as a precaution and would not use it unless necessary because it had limited power of destiny, which would reduce with every usage. No country would use the Chuan Country Jade Seal so easily unless it was facing a crisis and was on the verge of destruction.
“I’ve heard that this type of Chuan Country Jade Seal conveys the legendary heavenly destiny and is rather vicious and unpredictable. Never did I expect to see it with my own eyes.”
Mo Wen rubbed the Heavenly Serpent Divine Spear in his hands with a solemn expression. The heavenly path of destiny was one of the supreme heavenly paths. In essence, it was above the Six Paths of Reincarnation heavenly path. However, no one had been able to control this type of heavenly path of destiny. Even those existing in the heavenly path had a very shallow understanding of destiny. No one could control destiny.
Nevertheless, since the heavenly path of destiny exists between heaven and earth, one could be enlightened. It was rumored that some prodigies who understood the mystical rule for destiny managed to obtain some power of destiny. These types of people were quite fearsome.
“You should feel honored that I’m using our Chuan Country Jade Seal from Fengyu Country to deal with you.”
State Preceptor Fang waved his hands, and the Qilin Jade Seal flew out while releasing streaks of light that looked like silk threads weaving through heaven and earth. At the end of every strand of the silk thread, it seemed to be connected to a creature and its destiny.
In the watchtower, all faces of the lead generals and officials from Xiping Country changed. Everyone, including Zhang Huishan, withdrew from Li’an City quickly. They looked at the streaks of light with lingering fear, knowing that nothing good will happen if they were to come into contact with the power of destiny in the Chuan Country Jade Seal.
There was probably a good and bad side to destiny, but under the present circumstance, nothing good would come out of getting involved. Not to mention normal cultivators, even a mighty one from the Primordial Soul Realm like Zhang Huishan, would not dare to be entangled in power similar to karma.
“What a country’s destiny. I would like to see if this country’s destiny could affect my destiny.”
Mo Wen stood proudly in the air with no intention of evading. Since State Preceptor Fang was coming at him, there was no way to evade from this power of destiny. Each country has its destiny, and men have their destiny as well. No one would dare to say that one man’s destiny was no fight for a country’s destiny. Mo Wen had survived all sorts of bizarre encounters up to this day, which was also a kind of destiny.
