80 Years Of Signing-In At The Cold Palace, I Am Unrivalled - Chapter 31
Chapter 31: Entering Life Knowing with One Strike
Sword Twenty-Two. A powerful sword technique.
It contained twenty-two strokes.
The 22nd stroke was the most formidable move among them.
Compared to the others, it had another name.
Holy Spirit Sword Technique!
When the stroke was launched, the universe saw huge changes.
White snow danced in the air above the Celestial Mountains.
Sword energy proliferated as wild winds roared, lifting Lin Jiufeng.
He stood in the air, robes fluttering, and his black hair in a flurry.
He was being surrounded by the sword energy.
His hand held the Demon Slaying Sword.
In the very next moment, the Demon Slaying Sword split the air and executed a move that was the amalgamation of Lin Jiufeng’s Martial Will and the world’s energies.
“Die!” Lin Jiufeng stood in the air. His gaze was cold like a God fiend.
The Holy Spirit Sword Technique of Sword Twenty-Two directly weighed down onto his enemy like it was about to enact divine punishment.
The massive sword energy covered the skies as furious winds swept across hundreds of miles of land. The snow was pulled in from all directions as a huge vortex was swiftly formed.
This Holy Spirit Sword Technique landed.
It was as if a part of the universe had collapsed.
Martial Sage Tumen had no escape.
He could only receive this move.
However, Martial Sage Tumen wouldn’t possibly just accept his death. The phantoms of savage wild beasts behind him roared in unison. They were furious.
“I beseech the gods of the plains to descend and kill the enemy!” Martial Sage Tumen cried.
His countenance looked hideous. Hundreds of wild beasts were supporting him in their phantom forms, but he still felt apprehensive
Thus, he summoned the gods of the plains.
The air shook as Martial Sage Tumen’s True Qi swiftly expanded his body. All the hair on his body stood on ends. The purple mane that he had had fine hairs akin to sharp needles, but they now looked soft on Martial Sage Tumen’s body.
The mad winds stirred the purple mane, revealing Martial Sage Tumen’s current appearance.
He became a five-meter tall ape.
Leaping forcefully, True Qi gathered around him as he struck towards the sky, wanting to break Lin Jiufeng’s Holy Spirit Sword Technique.
Unfortunately, the Holy Spirit Sword Technique managed to land. This sword stroke was the most powerful move in Sword Twenty-Two. It carried not only the world’s energies but also Lin Jiufeng’s fierce Martial Will.
It simply and neatly penetrated Martial Sage Tumen’s body.
Then, inexhaustible sword energies fell like rain.
They fell onto the Celestial Lake as if cleansing it.
Martial Sage Tumen was already at the Life Knowing step of the Martial Sage Realm.
But he was still defeated by Lin Jiufeng.
In the boundless wind and snow, Lin Jiufeng spread his arms, his body moving with the wind.
He did not care about Martial Sage Tumen’s corpse.
He did not care about the peak of the Celestial Mountains beneath the explosion of his sword energies that fell like rain onto it.
He did not care about the hundreds of thousands of troops at the foot of the Celestial Mountains.
Lin Jiufeng was immersed in his own world.
When he killed Martial Sage Tumen with a stroke of his sword just now, he seemed to have opened the doors to a brand-new world.
He soon arrived at the second step of the Martial Sage Realm. Life Knowing.
But in reality, Lin Jiufeng had already reached it long ago.
He was merely missing a key to open its doors.
Right now, he knew that he had found the key.
Amidst the vast expanse of snow and the fierce winds, he slowly landed and stood by the Celestial Lake. He watched the swirling snowflakes, watched the biting fierce winds, and also the flustered army of hundreds of thousands.
Everyone in the surrounding hundred miles had witnessed Lin Jiufeng’s battle with Martial Sage Tumen.
Everyone was flustered, unaware of what just happened.
Why were they fighting?
Who was fighting who?
They were confused, they only knew that both parties were very powerful.
They did not see how it started but they saw the subsequent scene.
A sword that seemed to be a pillar from the heavens rapidly fell from the sky.
Then, they saw Martial Sage Tumen morphing into a giant ape. He leaped with all he had and faced the sword that seemed to have arrived to enact divine punishment upon its enemy.
Afterwards, the sword penetrated his body.
Then, the sword fell onto the peak of the Celestial Mountains.
The army has witnessed all of these.
Martial Sage Tumen had been killed!
Martial Sage Tumen who controlled the Xianbei people with his strength was killed by a sword that came crashing from the heavens as if enacting divine punishment.
This news instantly spread.
The people of Xianbei cheered.
In such a cold winter season, wasn’t it better to stay close to your loved ones?
At the least, they had no desire to gather together for war.
But they were unable to oppose Martial Sage Tumen.
With Martial Sage Tumen’s death, these troops immediately split up.
Each of them went on their own way, it was impossible for them to gather once more for war.
Lin Jiufeng smiled when he saw all of these.
He knew that this one stroke of his saved millions of lives.
“It turns out that this is the key to the Life Knowing step.”
Lin Jiufeng looked at the Demon Slaying Sword in his hands in delight.
The essence of Life Knowing was to be aware of one’s heart and fate. From there—they could do whatever they wanted to do so long as they continued to live responsibly.
Lin Jiufeng finally understood the essence of the step that he had always found to be confusing.
He held the Demon Slaying Sword in his hand and slashed toward the neighboring group of mountains.
Then, he left.
Riding the wind, he left without looking back.
A few seconds after he left, a huge mountain collapsed with a loud crash.
The heap of pure white snow immediately stirred.
An avalanche was soon formed from the collapse of the mountain.
From the wound that forced its collapse, one could feel the overwhelmingly powerful sword energy that cut the mountain off in half.
Lin Jiufeng entered Life Knowing with one strike!
Lin Jiufeng had flown back through the night.
The journey to and fro only took him two days.
After entering Life Knowing on the Celestial Mountains of the Northwest Plain, his entire being was reborn. Naturally, his speed increased along with his strength.
It was currently snowing in the imperial capital.
The snow was not as heavy as the snow in the Northwest Plains, but the ground was still filled with snowflakes.
Lin Jiufeng stepped on them, crunching sounds rang out as he did.
Amidst the snowy night, Lin Jiufeng, who had just returned from the Northwest Plains, opened the Cold Palace’s gates.
Returning to his courtyard, he laid down on the frost jade bed. There, he started to contemplate everything that he knew so far about the Life Knowing step of the Martial Sage Realm.
On the courtyard walls, a little fellow seemed to have blended in with the white snow.
It watched Lin Jiufeng with its dark gaze that seemed to melt into the night.
The white cat called out gently.
It wanted to make Lin Jiufeng move and look for more information.
But Lin Jiufeng was ignoring it.
He had just returned after running all the way to the Northwest Plains to kill someone. He was exhausted, but this little white cat didn’t seem to know how to take pity on someone at all.
The white cat stopped calling.
It knew that Lin Jiufeng was intentionally ignoring it.
It angrily brandished its claws.
It wanted to scratch Lin Jiufeng.
But after it compared its own abilities to Lin Jiufeng’s, the white cat retracted its claws in the end as it curled into a ball while remaining on top of the courtyard walls. Its body was slowly getting covered by the white snow.
Its eyes were on Lin Jiufeng.
The white cat sure was a stubborn creature.
Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been able to guard an empty coffin in the underground palace for so many years.
The next day, Lin Jiufeng woke up from his cultivation.
His exhaustion had vanished and he stood up in satisfaction.
Meows reverberated, the white cat was reminding Lin Jiufeng.
“White cat, you sure are persistent, huh?” Lin Jiufeng raised his head and saw the little white cat curled into a ball and covered with snow on top of the wall.
The white cat called out once more, its eyes stared hard at Lin Jiufeng.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Together with its delicate appearance, it looked somewhat pitiful.
“Never mind. Let’s go, you win,” Lin Jiufeng said in resignation.
This little white cat sure was persistent.
If Lin Jiufeng still refused to go and find more information for it…
It would definitely keep staring at him as if he had abandoned it.
