A Will Eternal - chapter-1142
As soon as the sprout appeared, powerful fluctuations rolled out, filling
Bai Xiaochun and causing cracking sounds to ring out as they passed. He
even grew slightly taller, and began to emanate a strange aura.
It was none other than the aura of Willpower. Before, that aura had been
hidden within his Daoseed, but now that his Daoseed had sprouted, it was
released into the open!
Bai Xiaochun was now able to affect the world around him on a fundamental
level. He could even influence the emotions of people around him. It was
an unfathomable level of power!
And there was more to it! In addition to the changes in Willpower, his
cultivation base improvement meant that his battle prowess was now
roughly ten times greater than before!
Before, Bai Xiaochun could use the Greatsword of the North to fight
someone in the mid Celestial Realm, and perhaps hold his own against the
late Celestial Realm. But now, he could do the same thing without the
Greatsword of the North!
And if he did use the sword, he would definitely occupy the peak level
among cultivators in the mid Celestial Realm!
As Bai Xiaochun analyzed his cultivation base fluctuations, and tested
his new control of Willpower, he could see how different he was from
before, and his heart swelled with excitement. He also knew beyond the
shadow of a doubt that, without the events in Murknine County, this
breakthrough would have taken much longer, and would have required more
resources. Perhaps even saving up for a hundred years would not have been
The damaged fan also played into it. As for the Former Will of his Time
Immemorial Codex, normally speaking, he would have had to wait until
passing the hundredth level and becoming the true owner of the damaged
fan before breaking through.
And unfortunately, an early Celestial Realm cultivation base could only
get him to the fiftieth level. But now, everything had changed!
“My next cultivation base breakthrough will also come much more
quickly…. It might even come after I pass the hundredth level…. Then
I’ll be in the late Celestial Realm, or perhaps even the great
circle!” Having reached this point in his train of thought, his
eyebrows danced up and down in delight. He almost didn’t dare to think
of how wonderful that future development would be.

“If I can ever become the true owner of the damaged fan, and reach the
great circle of the Celestial Realm, then, with the fan and the
Greatsword of the North… I could theoretically smash archaeans!!” He
simply couldn’t stop himself from thinking about how it was possible
for him to be incredibly powerful without even being an archaean!
After a bit of time passed, he managed to bury such thoughts in his
heart. After all, daydreaming about such things now would do little good.
“Thanks to the good fortune I came across, my Former Will is in the
great circle. Since I’m already in the mid Celestial Realm, I need to
work on the second level of my Time Immemorial Codex, which will
eventually get me to the late Celestial Realm!
“The first level of the Time Immemorial Codex is the Former Will…
which is perfect for the sprouting of the Daoseed!
“For the second level, I need to get the Daoseed to bloom!
“Everything up to this point was for the Former Will, but now that the
Daoseed has sprouted, the time has come for the Present Will!” Of
course, Bai Xiaochun knew that when it came to creating new techniques,
there had to be a basis. For example, his Former Will was based on his
memories and experiences in the Heavenspan Realm.
Now he was working on the second level of the Time Immemorial Codex.
Unfortunately, his cultivation base breakthrough had come earlier than
expected, and therefore, he didn’t have the proper foundation to work
on a new technique. Eyes glittering, he slapped his bag of holding and
brought out one of the rewards for the fiftieth level, the bamboo slip.
“But I have this!” he murmured. Originally, he had never intended to
become the true successor of the sovereign from the Immortal World by
acquiring his Dao Essence. He had hoped to learn from it to forge his own
If the bamboo slip had contained the full Dao Essence of Life and Death,
he could only have acquired it with enlightenment, and plenty more power
than he currently had. But considering that it was only a portion of it,
he felt much more comfortable trying.

Taking a deep breath, he relaxed, then sent some divine sense into the
two magical symbols carved onto the bamboo slip. Instantly, the powerful
aura of death once again appeared. Then, when his divine sense reached
the second magical symbol, a sensation of flourishing vitality also came
This convergence between life and death was Bai Xiaochun’s first
experience with Dao Essences. As he sank into the feeling, he lost track
of time, and forgot where he was. The only thing he didn’t forget were
his thoughts regarding the Present Will.
He remained in that state for an unknown period of time, seeking
enlightenment. At one point, unbeknownst to him, the spirit automaton
appeared out of thin air.
The boy glared at Bai Xiaochun, feeling extremely helpless. After all, as
the spirit automaton of the damaged fan, he could interfere with things
in the levels, but was completely powerless to do anything to Bai
Xiaochun in his current position.
He had been thwarted over and over again inside of the levels….
something that nearly drove him mad every time he thought about it.
He could punish trial-takers, but Bai Xiaochun had already taken control
over a portion of the damaged fan. Therefore the spirit automaton was
helpless to do anything to him, and in fact, was already forced to
consider him his master to some extent!
It didn’t matter that he didn’t like the arrangement. And it was even
worse now that Bai Xiaochun had passed the fiftieth level, putting him on
almost equal footing.
“What if things keep going like this? What am I supposed to do…?”
The spirit automaton really felt like crying. The mere thought of this
shameless cheater becoming his master was a horror. He also started
wondering what he would say if he was asked to reveal his name….
After all, he had already sworn an oath to adopt the same surname as Bai
Xiaochun if he passed that one certain level….

He let out a sigh, then gritted his teeth and looked closer at Bai
Xiaochun. After a moment, he blinked a few times, and then raised his
eyebrows in delight.
“Hahaha! What a fool! Is he actually trying to gain enlightenment of
the Dao of Time? Using the Dao Essence of Life and Death to be
enlightened regarding time? He’s dead! It’s settled! What he’s
trying to do is impossible. The Dao of Time is one of the most powerful
Daos there is. It can even control life and death! What a fool!
Hahaha!” Clapping his hands in delight, he looked closer to confirm
that his analysis was correct, then snorted coldly and left in extremely
high spirits. To him, it was like the clouds had parted and the sun was
now shining down brightly upon him.
A month later, Bai Xiaochun was still sitting there, cross-legged and
unmoving. At one point, a tremor passed through him, and the bamboo slip
which contained the Dao Essence of Life and Death dissolved into ashes.
Bai Xiaochun opened his eyes and looked around, and as the air around him
rippled and distorted, fluctuations began to roll out that were very
different from his Former Will.
Because of those fluctuations, any place where he existed, no matter how
ancient it might be, could be affected by his Will to stand in place in
the stream of time, and exist eternally in the present!
It was as if the passage of time simply couldn’t affect him at all!
To some extent, his Willpower… could cause time to stop!
“The Present Will!” he murmured. “So domineering!” Meanwhile, the
spirit automaton yet again stepped out into the open, albeit in a way
that Bai Xiaochun couldn’t see. When he sensed the fluctuations of the
Dao Essence of Life and Death, and then saw Bai Xiaochun, his eyes almost
plopped down onto the ground.
“The Dao of Time?! Heavens! That exists on a higher level than the Dao
Essence of Life and Death! A great Dao! How could a shameless cheater
like that gain enlightenment of it?!?! Are you blind, God?!” The spirit
automaton was really descending into madness. Howling defiantly in his
heart, and his eyes crimson, he decided that he would pay any price to
defeat this shameless individual.
“You just wait!!” he muttered, tugging at his hair in frustration.
Then he went to find the perfect level to tweak, looking very much like a
defeated gambler dead set on making a comeback.
