A Will Eternal - chapter-1053
Gu Tianjun had always looked down on people from the Heavenspan Realm.
Back before the body of the Arch-Sovereign collapsed, he had somewhat
looked forward to the arrival of the Arch-Emperor Dynasty. But after the
collapse, as more people from the Heavenspan Realm became part of the
Saint-Emperor Dynasty, things changed.
As time progressed, he learned more and more about what had gone on in
the Heavenspan Realm.
“Endless chaos and disorder. And they never even raised someone to the
Mahayana Realm. Considering how late they are, they’re doomed to be
little more than servants. Completely useless.” Gu Tianjun was the type
of person who looked up to those who were more powerful than him, but at
the same time, wanted to defeat them and take their place. That was
something about him that not even the Saint-Emperor could find fault with.
After all… when it came to bloodlines, Gu Tianjun was also a direct
descendant of the original Saint-Emperor.
As for people who were weaker than him, he viewed them like bugs. And
there were plenty of bugs in the Saint-Emperor Dynasty. As for people
from the Heavenspan Realm…
He placed them beneath the bugs.
A lot of people talked about their abilities with spirit enhancement, and
although that was of slight interest to Gu Tianjun, he still viewed it as
a mere skill, like pill concocting or equipment forging. With such
skills, the people of Heavenspan still only qualified to serve the other
two great powers in the lands.
They were doomed to be slaves!
As far as the people he was dealing with right now, they were just two
Heavenspan people who didn’t even count as bugs. Due to some lucky
break, they had managed to kidnap a celestial, but that did nothing to
reduce the disdain that Gu Tianjun felt for them.
“They just want help from the Saint-Emperor Dynasty!” After a few
breaths’ worth of time, Gu Tianjun began to get impatient at the fact
that his words were still hanging in the air.

Taking a step forward, he completely ignored Bai Xiaochun and the Giant
Ghost King, used his shocking sword qi to rip apart the defensive shield
protecting the bone lizard battleship, and then landed on the deck in
front of Gongsun Wan’er.
One reason for the ease with which he passed through the defenses was the
fact that Gongsun Wan’er had already been sealed.
“Hello, Ghostmother,” he said, smiling. In contrast to the two
Heavenspan cultivators, he was very interested in Ghostmother. Years ago,
he had severed her arm, and this was his first time seeing her again
since then. Although she was currently in a very weak state, since she
was a celestial, he viewed her as being slightly above the other bugs in
Bai Xiaochun stood there staring coldly and quietly at Gu Tianjun. As for
the Giant Ghost King, considering how long he had lived, he could easily
discern from the coldness being shown how this person looked down upon
them. Furthermore, it was obvious that he had no intention of letting
them into Saint-Emperor City to hand Ghostmother over.
From the look of things, the supposed blood tribute was turning out to be
nothing more than a joke.
Struggling to control himself, he stepped forward, clasped hands, and
“Greetings, exalted Celestial. We plan to personally escort Ghostmother
“Shut up!” Gu Tianjun said, waving his hand dismissively. “You want
a reward, right? Well go back to where you came from and wait. Your
reward will come eventually!”
With that, he reached out to grab Gongsun Wan’er. However, before he
could, Bai Xiaochun suddenly started laughing coldly.
Inside, he was very nervous. After all, he could sense that Gu Tianjun
was on a different level than Ghostmother. He was actually much stronger!
But even if he were stronger, Bai Xiaochun would not tolerate him
intruding and condescending in this way. And there was no way he would
simply let Gongsun Wan’er be taken away.

He didn’t waste any time speaking. Blue light flashed as the Greatsword
of the North appeared, unleashing heaven-shaking, earth-shattering
pressure. Then, he blurred into motion, slashing the sword at Gu Tianjun!
Gu Tianjun’s expression flickered as he turned his head to see what was
happening. When he saw the Greatsword of the North, his pupils
constricted, and he swung his hand from Gongsun Wan’er toward the sword
as if to grab it!
When the sword made contact with Gu Tianjun’s hand, a huge boom erupted
out, along with a massive shockwave. Before Gu Tianjun knew what was
happening, he staggered backward and off of the battleship!
Bai Xiaochun felt all of his qi and blood vibrating inside of him from
the power of the sword. Any other demigod, and even an ordinary
quasi-celestial, would have been seriously injured by it.
But Bai Xiaochun had his Undying Live Forever Technique, and could
essentially recover from any injury in the blink of an eye. Therefore, he
stood there on the battleship, staring up with a cold, grim expression at
“What incredible gall!” Gu Tianjun said, eyes narrowing. Although he
was shocked by Bai Xiaochun’s powers of regeneration, he also
couldn’t help but look greedily at the huge sword he held.
As of this moment, the Giant Ghost King’s heart was in his throat. Off
to the side, mixed emotions could be seen in Gongsun Wan’er’s eyes.
Although Bai Xiaochun seemed to be standing there bravely, she knew that
he was secretly nervous.
But at the same time, she also realized that he had changed. After all,
she knew him better than the Giant Ghost King; in the past, whenever he
faced an enemy more powerful than himself, he would try to resolve any
tensions. But now, he simply drew his sword and attacked!
“Is he really going to take a stand…?” she thought. As of this
moment, Bai Xiaochun seemed as lofty as a mountain as he stood there in
front of her.
Bai Xiaochun held his tongue for a brief moment. He knew that this was a
very critical moment, and that he only had one chance to succeed.
Therefore, he drew on everything he had learned in the Wildlands to quell

“Gall?” he said loudly. “Your name is Gu Tianjun, right? Well let
me tell you: you’re right. I do have gall!
“If I had no gall, how could I have left a swath of blood and death
behind me as I left the Vile-Emperor Dynasty? If I had no gall, how could
I possibly have kidnapped a celestial and several demigods?! If I had no
gall, I would have just let you steal what is mine!
“So, yes. I have gall. However, you also have quite a bit of gall
yourself!” As he spoke, his voice grew louder and louder until his
words echoed like heavenly thunder.
Gu Tianjun’s expression flickered from the incisiveness of Bai
Xiaochun’s words. The truth was, there was nothing he could say to
refute what had just been said. Eyes glittering with coldness, he
prepared to say something, but before he could, Bai Xiaochun spoke in an
even louder voice than before.
“I brought this Vile-Emperor Dynasty celestial here, and you blocked my
path. Why? Because you lack integrity, Gu Tianjun! Let me ask you a
question. Do you serve the Saint-Emperor? Or the Vile-Emperor?!” Gu
Tianjun’s eyes grew even colder, and yet before he could say anything,
Bai Xiaochun continued in thunderous fashion.
“I favor the Saint-Emperor Dynasty, and came here to offer formal
greetings. Not empty-handed, but with a gift. But you blocked my path at
the front door, Gu Tianjun. And there is one word for that. Rude! Let me
ask you another question. What logical basis do you have for your
actions?!” With that, Bai Xiaochun took a step forward.
“I fought and killed my way here from the Vile-Emperor Dynasty, and now
you want to steal my spoils of war? There is one word for that. Immoral!
So now I’ll ask you a third question, Gu Tianjun. What right do you
have to steal my gift?!” Bai Xiaochun took another step forward, taking
him off of the battleship and up into the air, where he pointed out with
the Greatsword of the North.
“I am the Arch-Ancestor of the Heavenspan Realm. Therefore, in the
Eternal Lands, there are only two people who rank as high as me. The
Vile-Emperor and the Saint-Emperor. How dare you try to boss me around,
Gu Tianjun. There is one word for that. Disrespectful! Therefore, I will
now ask you a fourth question. Considering that you are a rude, immoral,
and disrespectful creature, and also lack integrity, were the hell did
you get that gall of yours?!” As his words echoed out, blue light from
the Greatsword of the North shone out to fill the area.
All of the demigods who had accompanied Gu Tianjun from the immortal
domain were shaken, and even Gu Tianjun himself felt as if he had been
stabbed to the heart by the words which had just been spoken.
“You!!” Never could Gu Tianjun have possibly imagined that this
Heavenspan cultivator would have such a sharp tongue. There was literally
nothing he could possibly say by way of retort. At this point, anything
he said would come across as sounding like a flimsy excuse.

If he were in some remote location where no one was watching, he could
simply shrug off what had just been said. But he was here, with many
celestials paying attention. Furthermore, he had to consider the
reputation of the Saint-Emperor Dynasty as a whole. Therefore, Bai
Xiaochun’s tirade forced him into a passive position, and caused his
face to flush red with embarrassment and anger. And the killing intent in
his eyes grew even stronger.
As for the Giant Ghost King and Gongsun Wan’er, they were both staring
at Bai Xiaochun, astonished at how domineering he was!
Ignoring Gu Tianjun, Bai Xiaochun swished his sleeve and looked in the
direction of Saint-Emperor City. Sweeping his sword in grand fashion, he
called out in a voice that boomed like the loudest thunder.
“Saint-Emperor, is this how you treat visitors who come to see you in
The truth was that he was more nervous than could possibly be expressed
in words. In fact, he had already decided that, if necessary, he would
unseal Gongsun Wan’er and try to flee on the battleship.
However, years of practice at this sort of thing ensured that not even a
scrap of such feelings showed on his face. Instead, he looked confident
and arrogant to the extreme.
A moment passed, and his anxiety mounted. His heart was pounding, and his
scalp was tingling. Even as he prepared to turn and run, a warm, somber
voice echoed out into heaven and earth.
“Forgive my negligence, Fellow Daoist Bai. Please, come in!!”
