A Will Eternal - chapter-1143
Although Bai Xiaochun had a certain level of control over the damaged
fan, he had never surpassed the spirit automaton in that regard. Because
of that, he was never able to see him. But now that he had passed the
fiftieth level, and also risen to the Mid Celestial Realm, his senses
were more acute.
Although he still couldn’t see the spirit automaton, he could sense
him. All of a sudden, he looked over toward the fan rib where the spirit
automaton was actually standing.
The boy noticed this, and stepped back in shock, then vanished.
Bai Xiaochun narrowed his eyes, and then gave a soft snort.
“That was definitely the spirit automaton spying on me. The thing must
have mental problems or something. Otherwise why would he be so into
peeping on people!?” Muttering to himself a bit, he looked away and
focused his attention on the benefits he had achieved during this session
“The Dao Essences of sovereign cultivators sure live up to their
reputation. This is only a scrap of one, and yet I was able to use it to
fuel the auguries of my Present Will. It even contains some of the
meaning of life and death within it. This is my second powerful divine
“The Sutra of Present Life and Death!” Taking a deep breath, he rose
to his feet and waved his right hand, causing the air around him to
distort and tear. It even seemed as if the surrounding void were rippling
in his direction.
At the same time, an enormous stone gate appeared behind him, black in
color and awe-inspiring in appearance. Countless carvings of vicious
ghosts covered its surface, as well as a marionette that was clearly the
very same strange entity Bai Xiaochun had seen in Murknine County.
There was also the head of a dead old man carved right in the middle of
the gate. Considering the profound aura of death that this gate emanated,
it obviously represented death!
This was none other than the Gate of Death!

The evil ghosts that festooned it were various terrifying ghostly
creatures that Bai Xiaochun had encountered throughout his life. As for
the face of the old man, he had been formed by the Dao Essence of Life
and Death, and was the ultimate representation of death!
Next, Bai Xiaochun’s eyes glittered as he waved his right index finger
in the direction of the fan ribs, and the spot where he was certain the
spirit automaton had been spying on him.
Instantly, a second stone gate appeared in that very spot.
This gate was white, and was festooned with all sorts of plants and
vegetation that Bai Xiaochun had seen in his life, which represented life
force, vitality, and that which flourishes.
In the middle of the white gate was a carving of the face of a newborn
Anyone who looked at that face would suddenly hear the cry of a baby.
This gate was… the Gate of Life!
Bai Xiaochun’s Sutra of Present Life and Death created two stone gates,
one for death, and one for life. He would stand in front of the Gate of
Death, and would force his opponents to approach him from the direction
of the Gate of Life. Their approach to him signified their approach to
death, in which they grew weaker with every step. Because it also
contained the Dao of Time, it was even more powerful. Anyone who
approached him from the Gate of Life would grow older and older, just
like a sun descending into evening!
The power to arbitrarily push someone from life toward death was immense.
Even Bai Xiaochun was shocked by it. And of utmost importance in it all
was that Dao Essence of Life and Death which had once belonged to that
sovereign of the past!
Bai Xiaochun took in a long breath, and probed at his cultivation base
power. Then he stuck his chin up, resolving that, in the future, he
wouldn’t hide his cultivation base from people ever again.

“When people realize I’ve achieved a breakthrough, they’ll probably
guess that I came across some sort of good fortune. But who cares? I’ll
just tell them I got a bunch of life force from a weird egg sac I ate!”
After some thought, he decided that this was definitely the best
strategy. At this point, he glanced out of the corner of his eye at the
Gate of Life, thought for a moment, then made a beckoning gesture with
“Bring it on!” he said proudly.
The spirit automaton was standing next to the Gate of Life in the form of
a boy, staring hatefully at Bai Xiaochun. Had he possessed the power, he
would have killed Bai Xiaochun a thousand, no, a million times over
already. Unfortunately, he was powerless to do anything.
“Complete and utter bullying!! he growled, trembling physically. This
was definitely the most shameless person he had ever met in his entire
life, and he had already sworn countless oaths to see him dead.
Although Bai Xiaochun couldn’t see the spirit automaton, he could sense
him standing there. Therefore, he wouldn’t even think about challenging
the levels. He would wait until the boy was asleep again. Exercising a
thought, he vanished from the damaged fan.
After he was gone, the spirit automaton let out a howl of rage that
echoed from one end of the fan to the other. He very much looked like a
child throwing a tantrum as he then proceeded to fly around furiously,
screaming about how he was going to destroy Bai Xiaochun.
Meanwhile, Bai Xiaochun materialized in his private chamber in Mistysea
City. The first thing he did was look at the messages from the Grand
Heavenmaster and Giant Ghost King detailing the things that had occurred
while he was gone.
After scanning the jade slip, he frowned.
“Seven days ago, the Vile-Emperor reassigned Celestial Ghostmother to
Vile-Emperor City? And Celestial Deadfall was dispatched to oversee the
north!?” Bai Xiaochun’s eyes narrowed as he pondered the matter. For
one thing, he would miss Gongsun Wan’er. For another thing, he didn’t
know this Celestial Deadfall. Of course, since there were only twelve
celestials in all of the Eternal Immortal Domains, he had obviously heard

The Vile-Emperor Dynasty had seven celestials, and Bai Xiaochun had
personally met five of them. Other than Gongsun Wan’er and Daoist
Heavenspan, there were Celestial Virūpākṣa, Prince Ur-Demon, and
According to the jade slip, with Gongsun Wan’er having departed, the
spirit enhancement trade in the northern prefectures was temporarily
suspended. The Grand Heavenmaster had responded cautiously to this
development. Instead of going to try to handle it personally, he made
contact with one of the demigods from the Vile-Emperor Dynasty and
arranged for a message of good will to be sent to Celestial Deadfall, as
well as some introductory gifts.
They were still waiting to hear back.
According to the Grand Heavenmaster’s analysis, it was possible that
Gongsun Wan’er’s departure could actually be a good thing. Perhaps
she could help to spread word of the spirit enhancement trade to the
other immortal domains of the Vile-Emperor Dynasty, and increase the
reputation of Mistysea Prefecture.
After finishing with the reports, Bai Xiaochun realized that there was no
new information about Murknine County. Overall, the second immortal
domain had been very peaceful and quiet. Apparently, the incident in
Murknine County had been a coincidence.
But Bai Xiaochun still felt uneasy about it all. He knew that whatever
entity had stretched its red-scaled hand out of the egg sac possessed
power which could destroy the heavens and extinguish the earth, power
that celestials couldn’t defend against.
Although absorbing some of the thing’s life force had obviously caused
some problems for it, such problems could likely be resolved eventually.
Muttering to himself, he rose to his feet with the intention of
performing a quick inspection of Mistysea Prefecture.
However, that was when some divine sense from the Grand Heavenmaster shot
over. Clearly, he was very anxious about something. Not wasting words,
the Grand Heavenmaster said, “Exalted Celestial, I have important news!!
“Celestial Deadfall bears extreme animosity toward the people of
Heavenspan! The demigod who helped me send him a message of good will was

“And two hours ago, Celestial Deadfall issued orders that anyone from
the Heavenspan Realm found in his territory was to be arrested! Most of
the people who were arrested were employees of the stores we opened
“Even worse is that, apparently, he is having them all sent further
into the Vile-Emperor Dynasty to give as a tribute to the Vile-Prince, to
aid in his research of the secrets of spirit enhancement!
“If my analysis is correct, there is more to the situation than that.
We can probably expend a bit of wealth to resolve the situation, but
you’ll definitely need to take the lead.”
Even as the Grand Heavenmaster’s words echoed in Bai Xiaochun’s ears
via divine sense, the man was flying over to meet him in person. As for
Bai Xiaochun, he looked in the direction of the north.
“Extortion?” After probing his own cultivation base, he sent some
divine sense over to the incoming Grand Heavenmaster. “What’s his
“Early Celestial Realm,” was the reply.
“You’re sure about that?”
“Absolutely. I’ve already prepared the necessary gifts to give him.
Exalted Celestial, you–”
However, before he could say anything else, Bai Xiaochun’s eyes
tightened into a glare.

“Gifts? Yeah right. This Celestial Deadfall is certainly full of
himself, isn’t he?!” Energy surging, he flew off toward the north!
