A Will Eternal - chapter-1126
Bai Xiaochun couldn’t help but be shocked. After all, Mistysea
Prefecture had become a place of utmost importance. To the people from
the Heavenspan Realm who now lived in the Eternal Immortal Domains, it
was like a holy land!
As long as it stood, it was like a beacon of hope for them!
Bai Xiaochun’s heart was already pounding as he sent his divine sense
out to fill much of Mistysea Prefecture. However, everything seemed
ordinary. Rising to his feet, he took a step forward, appearing in the
grand hall, outside of which the Grand Heavenmaster stood.
“I, Situ, request an audience, exalted Celestial! I have an important
matter to report!”
The Grand Heavenmaster’s voice quavered in almost completely
undetectable fashion as he spoke, as though the matter of which he spoke
was of the most weighty significance. Feeling more alarmed than ever, Bai
Xiaochun waved his hand, causing the door of the hall to open. When the
Grand Heavenmaster rushed in, he was so anxious that he completely forgot
to clasp hands in greeting.
“Celestial, something bad has happened, and Mistysea Prefecture is in
incredible peril!! If we don’t solve this problem, then this foundation
we have worked so hard to build will be lost for all time. In fact, it
might even completely change our standing within the Saint-Emperor
Dynasty!!” His forehead was covered with sweat as he apparently thought
back to the recent days in which Bai Xiaochun had gone missing, leaving
him and the Giant Ghost King incapable of doing anything. And now, a most
critical moment had been reached.
As far as Bai Xiaochun could remember, the only time an expression like
this had appeared on the Grand Heavenmaster’s face was when
Arch-Emperor City was being besieged. That fact in itself caused his
heart to pound even harder.
“What happened?!” he asked immediately.
“Exalted Celestial, Mistysea Prefecture’s reputation as the best
place for spirit enhancements has already spread far and wide. However,
the Saint-Emperor Dynasty has come to covet us as surely as a hungry man
might covet a juicy steak. Clearly, they are only waiting for the right
time to swoop in and take control!”
Bai Xiaochun nearly gasped. Of course, he had long since assumed that
something like this would happen, which was why he was trying so hard to
achieve a breakthrough.

“Over the past few months,” the Grand Heavenmaster continued, “it
has become apparent that we only have one path available in front of us.
If we don’t move forward along that path, we will face profound
difficulties. But if we do move forward, then it will only be a matter of
time before the Saint-Emperor Dynasty comes for us! Worst of all is that
recently, the Saint-Emperor issued a series of decrees that strongly
suggest that he is thinking of taking action soon. We have no time to
“Exalted Celestial, you absolutely must reach the Archaean Realm in
less than half a year. The only other option would be to create a second
possible path of action, and do so as quickly as possible. The key to
that second method would be to establish relations with the Vile-Emperor
Dynasty. If we do that, the Saint-Emperor will have even more misgivings
than before, and we can buy ourselves time!
“Unfortunately, we have no ways to establish relations with the
Vile-Emperor Dynasty. That’s especially true considering that the other
prefectures in the north all belong to them. And although our spirit
enhancement abilities are important to them, that’s not enough for them
to open up to us. The Vile-Emperor Dynasty is tightly locked down. The
Giant Ghost King and I have been racking our brains recently about what
to do, but haven’t been able to think of anything. What do you think,
exalted Celestial?” The Grand Heavenmaster seemed to be virtually
beating his chest in frustration and helplessness. Bai Xiaochun had also
been very nervous throughout the explanation. However, upon reaching the
end, he relaxed a bit. After all, although he was still a bit suspicious
about his relationship with Gongsun Wan’er, he still knew that he could
fall back on that.
“Ai, you really had me scared there for a minute,” he said. “But in
the end, it’s all about the Vile-Emperor Dynasty, right? I’ll just go
work out a deal with Gongsun Wan’er. After that… wait…. Hold on a
However, before he could say anything else, the Grand Heavenmaster
cleared his throat. No trace of his previous anxiety could be seen as he
looked somberly at Bai Xiaochun, clasped hands and bowed. Speaking at a
rapid-fire pace, he said, “Once a celestial speaks, his orders will be
strictly enforced. Exalted Celestial, please establish business
negotiations with Celestial Ghostmother as soon as possible. The best
option would be to get to know her a lot better on a personal level. If
things went well, you never know, the Heavenspan Realm might end up with
another celestial on our side. In fact, the best thing would be for the
two of you to become husband and wife!
“Well, exalted Celestial, I know that you have just emerged from
seclusion. Please rest up a bit. I won’t bother you anymore. I’ll
take my leave now….” Chuckling, he bowed his head, and then hurriedly
departed from the hall.
Bai Xiaochun was left there standing by himself, his jaw gaping and his
“Situ, you old bastard, you conned me!!” Bai Xiaochun wanted to get
mad, but somehow couldn’t. Apparently, there was no crisis at all in
Mistysea Prefecture. All of the Grand Heavenmaster’s alarmist talk had
just been a ruse to try to get Bai Xiaochun get closer to Gongsun
Clearly, he had heard rumors about their vague relationship. And being
the wily fox that he was, he knew that if he made the suggestion
directly, Bai Xiaochun would balk. Of course, the truth was that Bai
Xiaochun was actually a bit terrified of Gongsun Wan’er.

The Grand Heavenmaster truly did want to get Gongsun Wan’er to join the
Heavenspan Realm. With two celestials on their side, their position in
the Eternal Immortal Domains would be stronger than ever!
Some of what he had said was very true. They couldn’t just rely on
trade with the Saint-Emperor Dynasty to keep Mistysea Prefecture going.
Even if the Saint-Emperor wasn’t very happy about it, they had to
establish trade relations with the Vile-Emperor Dynasty.
And that was where the crux of it all lay. They needed to prioritize
their safety. Otherwise, they could find themselves in a dangerous
situation without even realizing it.
Of course, the Grand Heavenmaster’s other assessments of the danger
they were in were not untrue. However, it would be some time before they
were actually a material threat.
After analyzing the matter for a bit, Bai Xiaochun wasn’t sure whether
to laugh or cry at how the Grand Heavenmaster had handled the matter.
After all, unless it was really important, he didn’t want to have any
dealings with Gongsun Wan’er.
“I always end up having to spank her….” he sighed. What he worried
about most was that, one day, the spanking might lead to something even
Unfortunately, thanks to the Grand Heavenmaster’s little trick, he had
already opened his big mouth. Therefore, it was with a light sigh that he
looked north, braced himself, and then disappeared via teleportation.
To an ordinary cultivator, the prefecture that housed Gongsun
Wan’er’s palace of operations was so far away from Mistysea
Prefecture that it could take a lifetime to go from one to the other. But
for Bai Xiaochun, it only took a few hours.
Furthermore, thanks to his Undying Hex, no amount of sealing formations
did any good to slow him down. By the time he arrived, it was evening.
Even as he stood there frowning, trying to decide how to enter, he heard
an overly sentimental voice drifting out from inside.

“Why are you here at such a late hour to see me, sweetie? Could it be
that you actually do want to spend the night with me?” Her voice was so
pleasant that Bai Xiaochun’s heart immediately trembled. However, by
now, he had come to realize that Gongsun Wan’er seemingly had two
personalities. One version liked to call him sweetie, and the other was
shrewish and murderous.
“She didn’t use to be like this. Could it be that fusing with
Ghostmother changed her in some way?” He already felt a headache coming
on. Fearful that the situation would progress like it had the last time
he came to see her, he cleared his throat and said, “Stow it, Wan’er.
I’m here on official business.”
“Official business? That’s what you said the first time you visited,
but in the end, all you wanted was my help to slander a demigod. Later,
we met in Mistysea Prefecture, and you also said it was official
business. But then, you ended up taking over my prefecture.” Although
her voice was still as flirtatious as ever, there was a bit of anger
“What, aren’t you even going to come inside? Is the mighty
Arch-Ancestor, a majestic celestial, really that cowardly? Ohhh, right. I
forgot you’re afraid of ghosts.” Even as her words rang out into the
evening, ghostly images appeared from within the palace, and Bai
Xiaochun’s headache immediately got worse. The strange thing was that,
considering he had his Sutra of Former Reincarnation, you would think she
wouldn’t want him to get near her.
“Don’t tell me she’s bluffing?” he thought, growing more vigilant.
Sighing dramatically, he stared at the palace and said, “Come on,
Wan’er, are you doing this on purpose? Are you really trying to piss me
off so that I burst in there, use my Sutra of Former Reincarnation and
then start spanking you?” With that, he slipped into a defensive stance
of readiness, convinced that his words would provoke her into rushing out
to fight him. However, after a moment passed, his jaw dropped when he
realized that Gongsun Wan’er… wasn’t saying anything in response.
“No way…. Don’t tell me I hit the nail on the head?!”
