A Will Eternal - chapter-1070
The anger in the shouting of the crowd couldn’t have been more
apparent, and the Saint-Emperor’s expression continued to turn grimmer.
Suddenly, he reached out with his right hand. The little turtle was
incredibly fast, and usually was able to vanish without a trace, but in
this case, he was no match for the Saint-Emperor.
Even as the little turtle prepared to teleport away, a magical sealing
settled down in the area surrounding him. He struggled, but to no avail.
A moment passed, and then a powerful force grabbed onto him and sent him
flying into the imperial palace in a beam of light, right into the
outstretched hand of the Saint-Emperor!
The turtle was clearly frightened, and fought back with all four of his
legs, but it did no good. As soon as he realized he had been captured by
such a terrifying figure, he shrieked, “I was forced to do it! It was
Bai Xiaochun! Bai Xiaochun made me do it! He’s the ringleader in this
whole thing! You people have no idea! He’s a walking disaster! He
forced me to steal the lotus seeds! I’m completely innocent! I’m the
When the cultivators in the infuriated crowd heard the little turtle’s
words, they slowly turned to look at Bai Xiaochun.
To have so many people staring at him caused Bai Xiaochun to break out
into a cold sweat. Although he knew that the little turtle was a
scoundrel who wasn’t exactly the trustworthy type, he had never
imagined that it would immediately sell him out.
What was worse was that the little turtle had personally taken what was
likely tens of thousands of lotus seeds, and had only given a thousand to
Bai Xiaochun. Inwardly, Bai Xiaochun was cursing up a storm, but on the
outside, he simply looked startled. Then he leaped to his feet and
pointed an accusatory finger at the little turtle.
“Who are you? And how do you know my name?! Your Majesty, this is a
conspiracy! Somebody is definitely framing me!!” From the rage that
seemed to echo in his voice, he was clearly furious at being unjustly
If it weren’t for the matter of the heavenly dragonfish, the
surrounding cultivators would likely have been convinced. But now, it
seemed obvious that this little turtle was working together with Bai
The turtle was accusing Bai Xiaochun, whereas Bai Xiaochun was accusing
the turtle. Obviously, they were the seed-thieves, and now, they had been
Worse was that the Saint-Emperor had just been about to harvest 200 lotus
seeds to be sold at auction to the general populace. The Saint-Emperor
himself wouldn’t benefit from the resulting auctions, but many of the
officials present would have.

There were numerous factors that played into the lotus seed auctions,
factors which ensured that everyone involved profited. But now… there
would obviously not be any auction. With seventy percent of the lotus
seeds gone, the Saint-Emperor obviously wouldn’t be doing any more
harvesting. The lotus pods had been so heavily damaged that it would be a
long time before there were any more lotus banquets.
That realization caused fury to boil up in the hearts of the celestials,
whose clans would definitely be affected negatively by this development.
Important clans like theirs had huge operating expenses, and now, they
would be losing out on a very important source of income.
“How brazen and reckless of you, Bai Xiaochun! How dare you steal the
immortal lotus seeds!!”
“Saint-Emperor, I would like to submit an official request to the court
that Bai Xiaochun be executed!”
“Your Majesty, I second the motion! This Bai Xiaochun must be punished
The imperial palace instantly became like a hornet’s nest, with raw
killing intent surging in all directions. If it weren’t for the fact
that they were actually in the imperial palace, many of the cultivators
present would have already started fighting Bai Xiaochun.
Bai Xiaochun was sweating hard, and gasped numerous times in response to
what people were saying. Scalp tingling in fear, he was just about to
open his mouth to speak when he suddenly noticed that the little turtle
had just winked at him in odd fashion.
Then, the turtle cleared his throat and spoke in a high-pitched voice
that cut through the crowd.
“My noble ladies and gentlemen, everything I did was on the orders of
Bai Xiaochun. He is my master, and I have no choice but to follow his

Bai Xiaochun was glaring furiously at the turtle, but inside, he was
actually a bit curious. After all the years of dealing with the little
turtle, he had come to know him well, and could tell that there was
something very odd about the way he had winked a moment ago.
And the fact that the turtle had immediately accused him in loud and
public fashion seemed to indicate that he was planning something!
The entire place was in complete chaos. Numerous cultivators were
submitting requests to the Saint-Emperor, the little turtle was yelling
at the top of his lungs, Bai Xiaochun was shouting… it was a madhouse.
At this point, Gu Tianjun suddenly spoke in a voice as cold as ice.
Killing intent was visible in his eyes as he stared at Bai Xiaochun and
said, “Saint-Emperor, this Bai Xiaochun absolutely must be put to
death! He has committed a capital offense of truly shocking nature! And
I’d wager that the Giant Ghost fellow is in on the conspiracy! He
should be killed too!!”
Heavenly Marquis Liu was there in the crowd, his eyes shining brightly.
Ever since he had been put in charge of keeping an eye on Bai Xiaochun,
he had been unable to find any incriminating evidence. No matter how hard
he tried, not a single clue had ever turned up. But now that the little
turtle had been discovered, everything made sense.
Heavenly Marquis Liu couldn’t help but get excited at the sight of Bai
Xiaochun being cursed by everyone in the crowd.
“Ah, what a familiar scene!” he thought, trembling in excitement.
“It’s just like what happened in the Grand Heavenmaster’s hall in
Arch-Emperor City. That was also the first time I lost to Bai Xiaochun….
“The heavens do have eyes! The same thing that happened back then is
happening today, but this time, I definitely won’t lose!” With that,
he threw his head back and laughed maniacally.
Striding out into the open, he ignored the rest of the crowd to glare at
the turtle for a moment. Then he clasped hands and bowed deeply to the

As of this moment, Heavenly Marquis Liu felt like he was one with all
creation. Raising his voice loudly, he said, “Your Majesty, I have
summarized 500 crimes that this Bai Xiaochun has committed, and would
like to take the opportunity today to list them out publicly. First is
the crime of–”
However, before he could even speak out the first crime, the
Saint-Emperor, who stood there in front of the crowd holding the little
turtle, threw his head back and laughed uproariously.
His crisp, clear laughter filled all of Saint-Emperor City, causing
heaven and earth to shake violently. Heavenly Marquis Liu was
interrupted, and the fury of the gathered officials was suddenly
“Good. Great! Excellent!!” The Saint-Emperor then laughed some more,
his face a mask of joy and excitement as he eyed the little turtle.
Considering that he was an archaean, it was unusual to see him acting in
such emotional fashion. Everyone was shocked, and had no idea what was
going on, except for the three celestials. Their eyes flickered as they
looked at the little turtle, and a moment later, looks of astonishment
could be seen on their faces.
“The Eternal Turtle,” the Saint-Emperor said, his voice quavering a
bit. “The Eternal Turtle! It’s the Eternal Turtle!! The legendary,
one-of-a-kind, completely unique companion spirit of the Eternal Flower!
“To have the Eternal Turtle in Saint-Emperor City is a good omen! It
shows that the Saint-Emperor Dynasty is the true and orthodox force in
the Eternal Lands, something that will stand the test of time and endure
Bai Xiaochun was stunned. Back when the gravekeeper had extracted blood
from the little turtle to help Bai Xiaochun, he remembered hearing
something about an Eternal Turtle, but he had been mostly unconscious,
and had never pursued the matter.
Eventually, the Saint-Emperor flicked his sleeve and issued a

“Let the Eternal Turtle be named the Saint-Turtle of the Saint-Emperor
Dynasty! This turtle is now the symbol of our nation, and represents me
wherever he goes! For offering this turtle as a gift, Bai Xiaochun will
be given a seven-colored belt, and ten immortal pills!” Gasps could be
heard from the gathered cultivators as they looked over at the little
