A Will Eternal - chapter-1141
Out in the dark void, the only visible light came from the softly glowing
damaged fan. On the main square of the fan, the air rippled and
distorted, whereupon Bai Xiaochun appeared, ridiculously fat because of
all of the life force he had absorbed.
From a distance, he looked like a trundling sphere of flesh.
“I need to assimilate this life force as quickly as possible. I’m way
too fat.” Yet again, he tried as hard as he could to look down at his
feet, but all he could see was his belly. In fact, he was so fat that it
was actually difficult for him to touch his belly with his hands. It was
all very uncomfortable.
Eyes flashing with determination, he flew toward the fan ribs to start
challenging the next level.
He had benefited from the events in Murknine County in a very unique way;
normally speaking, going from the early Celestial Realm to the mid
Celestial Realm was a very difficult process that would take an extended
period of time. It would also usually require vast amounts of precious
materials and good fortune.
But now, he was filled with an astounding level of life force, and
although he couldn’t be sure of exactly how far it would take him, he
needed to give it a shot. He would only have one shot, and if he didn’t
take advantage of it properly, it was impossible to say when the next
chance would come along.
Before getting this life force, his plan had been to use the rewards
given by the fan to propel him along in his cultivation. But after recent
developments, he changed his mind.
“My only chance is to go all out. I’ll get as far as I can in the
levels, and then try to break through!” Gritting his teeth, he stepped
into the next level.
He failed levels numerous times, but didn’t give up. He would analyze
the reasons for his failures, perform tests, and then continue
challenging the levels. Roughly two months flew by, during which time he
would frequently go back to Mistysea Prefecture to make sure nothing
unexpected had occurred.
The Saint-Emperor and Vile-Emperor had long since learned of the events
in Murknine County, but neither of them did anything about it. Bai
Xiaochun continued to worry about the matter, but reminded himself that
although Mistysea Prefecture was important to him, all of the territories
in the second immortal domain were of importance to the two emperors.

And thus, Bai Xiaochun continued to pass one level after another.
Eventually he passed the fiftieth level. Finally, at the fifty-first
level, he reached a limit, and was unable to pass the level no matter
what he did.
He performed a few more tests before giving up on the fifty-first level.
“Ah, whatever. I guess I can only pass the fiftieth level in my current
At this point, he assessed all of the rewards he had earned, and was very
impressed, especially by the reward from the fiftieth level!
There were many medicinal pills that he didn’t recognize, but could
identify as immortal pills thanks to his skill in the Dao of medicine.
There was also a bamboo slip which was carved with two magical symbols.
Although he didn’t understand what they meant, when he looked closely
at the first magical symbol, he felt like he was descending into depths
of hell. It was as if his mind filled with nothing but death.
After a moment passed, he recovered. Panting, he didn’t dare to look at
the second magical symbol. However, he already had an idea about what
this bamboo slip was.
“The reward for the fiftieth level is… a portion of the Dao Essence
of Life and Death!!” Gripping the bamboo slip tightly in his hand, he
sat down in the main square of the fan to meditate. Previously, it had
always been an easy thing to meditate, but now that he was extremely fat,
it was difficult to settle down cross-legged. Somehow, he managed.
Quickly performing a double-handed incantation gesture, he rotated his
cultivation base and began to work on the first level of the Time
Immemorial Codex, the Former Will. His energy passageways instantly began
to vibrate as cultivation base power surged into them. The power
converged on the main energy passageway within him, and then ended up in
his heart. During this process, his mind began to thrum, building up into
a roar that made it seem like a huge dragon was inside of him.
The dragon surged with explosive power in his heart, and occasionally in
his dantian region.
Of course, Bai Xiaochun knew that this supposed dragon was actually his
Daoseed, which was different from that of other celestials. His Daoseed
was full and complete, and was becoming more powerful with every
advancement he made with his cultivation base.

Unfortunately, he was still very far away from a breakthrough.
“In the Celestial Realm, the Daoseed first lays roots, then sprouts,
then blossoms and bears fruit!
“Upon becoming a celestial, the Daoseed takes shape. The energy
passageways in the body become like rootlets. Only after they integrate
do they become the root!
“In the early Celestial Realm, the rootlets spread and eventually
become the root. In the mid Celestial Realm… the root is given
nutrients, and the Daoseed sprouts!
“That is exactly what is happening now!” His eyes flickered as the
dragon that was his Daoseed finally began to center on one location, his
As it shrank down, a strange energy coursed through him, which was
apparently the power caused by his Daoseed sprouting. Shivering, he
realized that the critical moment had arrived, and that the life force
which had been locked away inside of him for the past months was now
about to be released.
Rumbling sounds like heavenly thunder filled him as the vast stores of
life force surged out.
As he worked with the Former Will of his Time Immemorial Codex, the life
force rushed unimpeded toward his Daoseed!
His Daoseed began to tremble with incredible intensity, like parched
earth that had suddenly encountered sweet dew, or a starving person who
came across a feast set for immortals. It became a black hole that
ravenously devoured all of the life force that came its way.

As it shrank down on itself with greater speed, Bai Xiaochun slowly began
to deflate. At the same time, the aura of his Daoseed grew stronger and
Apparently, a dramatic metamorphosis was taking place!
However, it was at this point that something which Bai Xiaochun had been
worried about all along happened. His Daoseed was based on the Undying
Live Forever Technique, which was different from the legacy magics of the
two imperial clans. What was unique about the Undying Live Forever
Technique was the drastic levels of life force it required. In fact, even
with the enormous amount of life force he currently had at his disposal,
it seemed unlikely that he had enough life force to cause his Daoseed to
He had already shrunk down to his original size and shape, and was still
shrinking. It was as if his own life force, cultivation base and
everything else of which he was made, were being absorbed into the
Daoseed. And if it kept going in this way, he would be destroyed in body
and soul before the Daoseed sprouted!
Even worse, he could not attempt to interrupt this breakthrough process,
or reverse it. Now that he had started down this path… he had to
Thankfully, Bai Xiaochun had anticipated something like this happening.
Although he had never made an attempt to achieve a breakthrough in the
Celestial Realm, nor had he been given any advice about it, based on what
he knew about the Undying Live Forever Technique, and his past
experiences, he had guessed that he might reach a critical point in the
process in which he ran out of resources.
Having prepared for this possibility, he wasn’t alarmed. As his body
continued to shrink in on itself, he slapped his bag of holding to
produce a medicinal pill, numerous immortal grasses, and other rewards he
had acquired from the first fifty levels of the damaged fan. He had given
some of the rewards to the Grand Heavenmaster and others among his
subordinates, but he had kept many for himself, and right now, he threw
them all into his mouth without hesitation.
The pills and grasses immediately caused life force to flow into him,
halting any withering process. As for the Daoseed, it was already very
close to completion, and therefore, after enough time had passed for an
incense stick to burn… it began to shine with radiant light.
The light filled him, and then spread out, creating something that
surpassed the brightness of the damaged fan itself!
From a distance, Bai Xiaochun was like a burning lamp within the dark
void, dazzling to the extreme!
At that point, he opened his eyes, and excitedly checked his Daoseed…
which now had a tiny sprout sticking out of it!!
“I’ve mastered the Former Will. My Daoseed has sprouted. Mid
