A Will Eternal - chapter-1058
Bai Xiaochun suddenly realized that he missed spirit tail chickens, and
yet, the fact that he had found something similar to them in the Eternal
Lands was a wonderful thing….
The Giant Ghost King smacked his lips, and then eyed a fish bone for a
moment before tossing it into his mouth and crunching it to bits. He then
prepared to speak, but before he could, he shivered, and a searing heat
rose up inside of him that caused white mist to build up in the area.
“An immortal fish!” he exclaimed. He quickly settled down
cross-legged to begin doing breathing exercises.
After the Giant Ghost King experienced such success, Bai Xiaochun waited
for a long moment to see if something similar would happen with himself.
However, no heat appeared inside of him.
“What’s going on? It worked for the Giant Ghost King. Why not me?”
Then he looked around, and realized that there were a lot of bones around
that they hadn’t eaten. After randomly picking up a few, he crunched
them up in his mouth and swallowed them, which was exactly when the warm
current began to flow through him.
Delighted, he closed his eyes. Soon, the warmth turned into something
like a huge wave that pushed his Live Forever Codex further toward
Suppressing his excitement, he focused on the energy in his body. Time
passed. Soon, roughly six hours had gone by since Bai Xiaochun and the
Giant Ghost King began meditating.
At that point, the Giant Ghost King opened his eyes, threw his head back
and laughed uproariously. In that short six hours, the Giant Ghost King
had made significant progress toward the late Demigod Realm.
“It’s too bad we only had one,” he said. “If I could eat fish
like that more often, I could reach the great circle in no time!”
At that point, Bai Xiaochun also opened his eyes, and they glittered with
Although he hadn’t made as much progress as the Giant Ghost King, that
was because he was already further past him in general. Even still, the
little bit of progress he had experienced was very exciting.
If he wanted to break through to become a celestial, then he needed to
reach the great circle of the Live Forever Codex. Unfortunately, he was
still some distance away from that level. And unfortunately, the Live
Forever Codex differed from the Undying Codex in that he had not actually
personally cultivated it. It had been consecrated upon him.
Although he had developed the divine abilities of the technique all the
way to creating his Live Forever Lamp, the truth was that he still
didn’t really understand how to actually cultivate the technique.
After the gravekeeper consecrated him, he came to the Eternal Immortal
Domains and achieved a bit of progress. But it was slow to the point of
being almost nothing. At the moment, his Live Forever Codex had reached
the point where it was holding him back. He was basically at a major
Based on what he could tell, if he practiced ordinary cultivation with
the spiritual energy in Saint-Emperor City, then he couldn’t achieve in
ten years or more what he had just achieved by eating half of a heavenly
Considering that, it was almost impossible to calculate how long it would
take him to break out of the Demigod Realm by ordinary cultivation alone!
His original plan had been to acquire some special medicinal pills or
something similar. But now, looking around at the handful of fish bones
that were left over, he realized that a new path had just been opened up.
“One fish is worth at least fifteen years of cultivation!!” All of a
sudden, Bai Xiaochun’s eyes began to shine as brightly as a mouse that
hadn’t eaten for several years. “If I could get enough of those
fish… breaking through this bottleneck would be super easy! I could
become a celestial very soon!!”
He was already getting very excited. For one thing, he would have much
more longevity and life force after becoming a celestial, and for
another, he would have his Daoseed, which meant he could be resurrected
if he died. All of a sudden, he had the desire to reach the absolute
pinnacle of this strange new world he was in. And it all came down to the
“I need fish!!” He immediately began to look around and grab up all
fish bones he could see. However, the Giant Ghost King seemed to have
come to the same conclusion as him, and lunged to interfere!
“Hey, Giant Ghost King, the Saint-Emperor gave me this fish as a
reward. Don’t you dare fight me over it!” Bai Xiaochun’s eyes
widened into a glare.
“Like hell! I’m your father-in-law, fool! Haven’t you heard of filial
At this point, Bai Xiaochun furiously resorted to a trump card. “This
is one of my leftovers! I actually licked it already!!”
“Oh yeah? Well I licked all the other ones you already ate! We’re
related anyway, so it doesn’t matter!” Not willing to be outdone, the
Giant Ghost King leaned forward and spat toward the fish bones on the
Perhaps it was because of some divine ability that he cultivated, but
that one bit of spittle somehow managed to spread out and cover all of
Bai Xiaochun stood there, stunned at the Giant Ghost King’s despicable
and yet devastating tactics. Although he had to admit that the man was
definitely thicker-skinned and a much better schemer than himself, that
didn’t explain how he was able to spit out so much saliva in one
As he stood there hesitating, the Giant Ghost King waved his sleeve,
collecting all of the fish bones up and depositing them into his bag of
holding. With that, he smiled complacently.
“You’re too inexperienced to fight with me, kid.” With that, he
Dumbfounded, Bai Xiaochun sighed and was about to say something when both
he and the Giant Ghost King realized that someone was approaching the
blessed land. A moment later, they heard someone speaking outside.
“Duke Heavenspan, it’s Chen Su, here for a visit.”

This was the first official visit Bai Xiaochun had received in
Saint-Emperor City, and shockingly, the visitor was a celestial! Not only
was Bai Xiaochun curious to see who it was, he also didn’t want to
cause any offenses, so he hurried over, waving his hand to open the main
gate. Revealed outside was an old man with gray hair.
He wore a long, blue robe, and bore the demeanor of a transcendent being.
Smiling faintly, he clasped hands in formal greeting.
“I was wondering why the birds were singing so happily earlier!” Bai
Xiaochun said. “It was because an honored guest was on his way! I never
imagined it would be you, Fellow Daoist Chen! Please, come in!” Bai
Xiaochun’s broad smile and clearly spoken words made him seem
completely different than he had moments ago, struggling with the Giant
Ghost King over fish bones.
Chen Su laughed heartily at Bai Xiaochun’s pleasing words. Nodding, he
stepped into the blessed land.
The Giant Ghost King was also curious about this visitor. Neither he nor
Bai Xiaochun were cultivators of the Saint-Emperor Dynasty, and were
considered foreigners. Although they both had official government
positions, based on the information he had gathered earlier, he knew that
most of the other government officials viewed them with a certain measure
And yet, almost overnight, someone had come to pay their respects.
Furthermore, Chen Su was one of the four kings of the Saint-Emperor
Dynasty, someone with a rank similar to Gu Tianjun. Shocked, the Giant
Ghost King quickly clasped hands in a greeting of his own.
Chen Su nodded at the Giant Ghost King, but then ignored him. After
looking around the courtyard, he made some small talk with Bai Xiaochun,
until finally clearing his throat.
“Fellow Daoist Bai, where is the heavenly dragonfish that His Majesty
rewarded you with?”
“Heavenly dragonfish?” Bai Xiaochun had been curious about the nature
of the visit, so when Chen Su brought up the heavenly dragonfish, he was
a bit taken aback.
“Yes, the heavenly dragonfish,” Chen Su replied warmly. “If you’d
be willing to part with it, Fellow Daoist Bai, I’d love to take it in
trade.” Chen Su, despite being a celestial, actually had no heavenly
dragonfish. After all, they were considered the personal property of the
Saint-Emperor, and were rarely given out as rewards. In fact, throughout
all history, only a few hundred had ever been distributed.

Each one was considered beyond priceless, and they were commonly referred
to as national treasures, which was no exaggeration. In the Vile-Emperor
Dynasty, people would pay astronomical prices to acquire even one. One of
the main reasons for that was that their blood could be used as an
immortal ingredient to concoct immortal pills.
Chen Su was convinced that his proposal would not be rejected. Bai
Xiaochun was a newcomer to the Saint-Emperor Dynasty, and wouldn’t want
to offend a celestial over a fish.
Bai Xiaochun hesitated for a moment, then said, “Uh… sorry, Fellow
Daoist Chen, you’re a bit late. I ate it already.”
When Chen Su heard Bai Xiaochun’s response, his eyes nearly popped out
of his skull.
“Did you just say… you ate it?”
Bai Xiaochun blinked a few times and then nodded. “Yep. Ate it.”
As far as Chen Su was concerned, Bai Xiaochun was obviously making up
excuses. Voice cold, he said, “Come on, Fellow Daoist Bai. Don’t
treat me like I’m three years old or something. If you don’t wish to
part with it, just say so directly. Heavenly dragonfish are national
treasures, and precious beyond imagination. Nobody who acquired one would
ever possibly eat it! The best thing to do is keep it in a pond and
extract its blood occasionally!”
With that, he flicked his sleeve as if to leave.
At this point, Bai Xiaochun sighed and gave the Giant Ghost King a look.
The Giant Ghost King, despite not really wanting to, produced some fish
bones from his bag of holding.
“See these fishbones, Fellow Daoist Chen….”

When Chen Su looked back and saw the bones, his eyes went wide. When he
opened his mouth to speak….
