A Will Eternal - chapter-1133
As the egg sac formed, a strange aura began to pulse out from within
Murknine County, giving birth to a gray mist.
Normally, Gongsun Wan’er would have personally come to investigate the
events in Murknine County, but she was at a critical juncture in her
cultivation, and thus had dispatched the two demigods in her stead.
When it became clear that the demigods weren’t coming back, she
realized that the situation was worse than she had initially thought.
At the same time, the gray mist was spreading into Mistysea Prefecture,
leading the Grand Heavenmaster and Giant Ghost King to realize that
something was going on in the neighboring prefecture.
There was some power at work within that mist that cultivators couldn’t
detect. It turned the lands gray, and even caused crevices to open up.
Furthermore, the mist killed anything it touched, even the plants!
Mistysea Prefecture immediately went on high alert, and the Grand
Heavenmaster personally went to the border to investigate, as did the
Giant Ghost King and certain other powerful experts. After seeing the
situation personally, they came up with a theory about what was to come.
If the mist wasn’t brought under control, it would only take half a
month for it to cover Mistysea Prefecture!
It was a monumental turn of events. After all, Mistysea Prefecture was in
the middle of rapid development, and if the momentum stalled at this
early stage, it could have devastating long-term consequences.
It was at this time that Bai Xiaochun returned from the damaged fan, and
sent out his divine sense to notify the Grand Heavenmaster and Giant
Ghost King that he was back. Those two had long since come to realize
that he had some mysterious reason for disappearing occasionally.
Of course, neither had presumed to ask about it. Once Bai Xiaochun’s
divine sense touched them, they somberly explained the issue with the
mist, and Murknine County.

“The entire county is covered with spiderwebs? And anyone who touches
the mist dies!?” Bai Xiaochun was visibly shocked. Clearly, this was
not a small matter, and therefore, the first thing he did was send a
report to Saint-Emperor City.
Not wanting to waste time waiting for a response, and worried about how
Mistysea Prefecture might be negatively affected, he forced himself not
to think about how dangerous the situation was, and flew over to check it
out personally. Of course, he brought various subordinates with him,
including the Grand Heavenmaster and Giant Ghost King.
Soon, they were near the border of the prefecture, right outside of the
expanding gray mist. When Bai Xiaochun saw it, he felt very shaken.
“What is that stuff?!” he thought, immediately beginning to curse
inwardly. The mist was moving at incredible speed, roughly that of a
deva. And his divine sense couldn’t penetrate it at all.
Back in the Heavenspan Realm, he would have simply fled in the face of
this level of danger. But now, he was the most powerful expert in
Mistysea Prefecture. How could he possibly run away?
Torn about what exactly to do, he gritted his teeth and ordered his
subordinates to back up. Then he unleashed all of the power of his
cultivation base to surround himself in defensive fashion. Finally, he
tried to enter the mist to investigate further.
The Giant Ghost King anxiously considered urging Bai Xiaochun not to do
something so dangerous. However, considering that the mist was spreading
rapidly into Mistysea Prefecture, both he and the Grand Heavenmaster were
“He’ll be fine,” the Grand Heavenmaster said quietly. “He’s a
celestial, and he’s very cautious. Considering the level of his
cultivation base, he shouldn’t face anything truly deadly.” The Giant
Ghost King merely sighed and nodded. And thus, they waited behind as Bai
Xiaochun entered the mist.
As soon as he entered the mist, he felt something dragging against him,
almost as if he were walking through seawater, significantly reducing his

Apparently, there was a powerful pressure weighing down everywhere.
To his relief, though, his celestial cultivation base made him like a
boulder that the seawater could do nothing but flow around.
Gaining a bit of confidence, he began to pick up speed, and before long
was nearing the source of the mist. Murknine County!
His first impression was that it looked like an enormous, webby egg sac.
Furthermore, he found the wicked aura it emanated to be profoundly
“Dammit, what exactly is going on here?” Trembling in fear, he edged
closer to Murknine County, keeping an eye on the dense, impenetrable
spiderwebs. Considering how uneasy he felt, he didn’t do anything rash,
and simply flew along the edge of the county to inspect the webbing.
After six hours passed, he had almost made a complete circle of the
county, but hadn’t found any entrances. Eyes flashing, he considered
striking at the web to see how strong it was. But that was when his
expression flickered, and he turned to look in a different direction in
Gradually, a woman became visible off in the distance, although he
couldn’t quite see who she was. When she saw Bai Xiaochun, she
approached. Soon, she was close enough to make out her face.
“Gongsun Wan’er,” he said by way of greeting, keeping his voice
“Bai Xiaochun!” she replied. Soon she was right in front of him.
Obviously, there was no need for an explanation of why the both of them

Considering how bizarre things were at the moment, Bai Xiaochun was
actually happy to have Gongsun Wan’er around. Not wasting any time on
small talk, he quickly went on to tell her everything he knew.
“This mist is expanding with the speed of a deva, corrodes the land it
covers, and sucks the life force out of anything it touches. The
strangest thing is that it extracts life force by teleporting it away, or
at least, by using something that resembles a teleportation.
“This web is one huge structure with no entrances. I haven’t
unleashed any attacks to test it, but I’m guessing that any divine
abilities used against it will provoke some sort of response. If we hit
it hard enough, maybe we could get through in one shot. Otherwise, it
will probably take a long time to get through.”
Gongsun Wan’er took a moment to digest all the information, then went
on to tell Bai Xiaochun a few things she had come to discover.
Lowering her voice, she said, “Two days ago, I sent two demigods here
to investigate. Back then, the webbing hadn’t yet formed into a single
structure, and there were ways to get in. However, after the demigods
went inside… I never heard from them again!
“Furthermore, this mist is transforming. I suspect that within three
days, it will be expanding at the speed of a demigod. And that’s
probably not its full limit!”
Bai Xiaochun was visibly shocked by this.
The two of them exchanged a glance. Obviously, there was no time to sit
around waiting for either the Vile-Emperor Dynasty or the Saint-Emperor
Dynasty to send reinforcements. They had to do something immediately!
There were few options. Bai Xiaochun gritted his teeth, and Gongsun
Wan’er’s eyes flashed with determination. If Gongsun Wan’er had
been on her own, she wouldn’t have been willing to face the danger. But
considering they were celestials, there were few places in the Eternal
Immortal Domains that they could not go.

They discussed the particulars and came up with a simple plan, and then
drew upon the powers of their cultivation bases. Booms rang out as divine
abilities were unleashed, striking one particular spot on the webbing.
A shockwave blasted out in all directions, and the web rippled, seemingly
standing up to the power of the combined attack.
But the web barrier had only been erected recently, and Bai Xiaochun and
Gongsun Wan’er were celestials with matchlessly powerful divine
abilities. A moment later, the web shuddered, and a hole opened up.
Instantly, vast quantities of gray mist poured out of the hole, which
began to close up the moment it opened.
“Go!” Gongsun Wan’er said, blurring into motion to enter the hole.
Bai Xiaochun suppressed his unease, braced himself, and followed!
