I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-75
Meng Hao’s face was grim. He looked at the two wooden swords, which
hovered three inches away from Shangguan Xiu. Those three inches were
like a massive ravine that Meng Hao could not cross with his current
As for Shangguan Xiu, at the moment, he couldn’t really be considered a
Qi Condensation Cultivator. Although he was still some distance from
Foundation Establishment, a Dao pillar was forming within his Core Lake.
As of this moment, despite the fact that Meng Hao was at the ninth level
of Qi Condensation, he was so weak compared to Shangguan Xiu that he
wouldn’t be able to withstand a single blow.
The gap between the Foundation Establishment stage and the Qi
Condensation stage is like that between the sky and the ground, and is
something that will never change. With the exception of some unexpected
event which goes against the will of the Heavens, it would be impossible
for someone of the Qi Condensation stage to kill someone of the
Foundation Establishment stage.
A contest between the two would be like a fight between an infant and a
strong man. Even if the strong man were weakened somehow, he could still
slay the infant with the movement of a hand.
Today, Meng Hao had little more than an hour before a Foundation
Establishment Cultivator appeared in front of him. His chances were
already small, but at that time, he would have no chance at all.
Time slipped by, and the shadow of death grew closer. Even if he fled, in
a very short time, it wouldn’t matter where he went, even if it were to
the remotest corner of the Milky Way Sea, he would still be unable to
“What should I do….” Meng Hao’s eyes were bloodshot. He wasn’t
the only nervous one. Down at the bottom of the mountain, Little
Tiger’s face was growing pale. Seeing the developments just now, he
gritted his teeth.
“Meng Hao!” he shouted. His fingers flickered with an incantation,
and then he pushed down on his chest. He spat up a massive amount of
blood, which flew out in front of him and then formed into a handful of
red-colored clouds. “This pearl is my life, allow me to offer some
As soon as the words were out of his mouth, he collapsed into
unconsciousness. The pearl sucked Little Tiger’s blood cloud into it
and then began to shine with a red glow. It circulated a few more times
around the Blood Globe, but then suddenly shot toward Meng Hao. When it
reached him, the glow intensified, enveloping Meng Hao with its light.
At that moment, a strange sensation filled Meng Hao’s heart. It felt as
if is Cultivation base were suddenly climbing higher!

His golden Core sea began to roar as it expanded. Within an instant, it
had suddenly doubled in size. Its boundlessness increased so much so that
it felt as if it would explode out of his body.
Meng Hao body suddenly shined with a golden light, making him look
The Demonic Core within him did not undulate, but instead began to spin
rapidly. As it did, intense spiritual power flooded through Meng Hao’s
body, filling his mind with a thunderous roar, and … a thread of Qi!
The Qi was weak, just like the thread he had felt when he reached the
first level of Qi Condensation.
What Meng Hao didn’t know, was that this strand of Qi in his mind was
actually something that only Foundation Establishment Cultivators should
possess; Spiritual Sense!
Even Shangguan Xiu couldn’t develop it, because he hadn’t completely
passed into the Foundation Establishment stage.
And yet, Meng Hao hadn’t passed into Foundation Establishment either.
Instead, he had reached the tenth level of Qi Condensation! Popping
sounds rang out through his body. Vast quantities of filth were pushed
out through his pores as he experienced a sort of baptism into a higher
level of Qi Condensation than anyone else in the world.
The tenth level of Qi Condensation!
Meng Hao’s head spun. In the blink of an eye, his body was much tougher
and stronger. Not only had he developed Spiritual Sense, but his body has
miraculously grown much more powerful.
In the Cultivation world, the tenth level of Qi Condensation was
something rarely seen. In fact, throughout the years, many of the most
powerful members of a given generation had done research about the Qi
Condensation stage… to determine whether there really even was a tenth
level, an eleventh level and a twelfth level.

Theoretically speaking it was possible; in some ancient text fragments
these levels were mentioned. Supposedly, in ancient times, there were a
total of thirteen levels in the Qi Condensation stage! According to the
legends, even in ancient times, it was rare for someone to reach the
tenth level, and even more rare the eleventh level. Any person who
reached that level inevitably went on to rock the world.
In the modern Cultivation world, the tenth level of Qi Condensation was
nothing more than a legend.
Over the years, generation after generation of Cultivators had researched
it and eventually a consensus had been reached. In ancient times, there
had been thirteen levels of Qi Condensation. But, the ninth level had
been set as a limit. The tenth level and beyond had been crippled in
accordance with the will of the Heavens. From that time on, there were
only nine levels!
There was another opinion, rejected by most as being absurd, that the
ancient will of the Heavens was dead, and that a new will of the Heavens
had arisen. The new will of the Heavens only approved of nine levels of
Qi Condensation, and had thus broken the path of the tenth level. This
was because following the path of the tenth level allowed one to fight
against the Heavens, which was prohibited.
If a Cultivator could accumulate enough spiritual energy of heaven and
earth, then they could once again forge the path to reach the fabled
tenth level of Qi Condensation of ancient times!
The path was the focal point. Unfortunately, that path had been broken
since ancient times, and though it still existed, was essentially broken
beyond all repair.
But today it appeared in Meng Hao’s body, visible not only to him, but
also to a dumbfounded Shangguan Xiu. How could he possibly believe that
right there in front of him, Meng Hao… had actually entered into the
legendary tenth level of Qi condensation?
“Impossible… the tenth level of Qi Condensation is just a legend.”
Shangguan Xiu’s face was filled with disbelief. “According to the
stories, the tenth level of Qi Condensation is a body-strengthening
stage… It exists in theory, and even in ancient times, it was rare for
it to be achieved…. Impossible!”
Were Little Tiger not unconscious, he would also be shocked. Even though
the pearl was his, and was composed of his life force, it had never had
such a shocking effect on him. Whatever level he was at, it allowed him
to wield a level of power equal to half of the following level. For
example, now he was at the fifth level of Qi Condensation, but in terms
of power, he was already half way through the sixth level.
Meng Hao’s hair flew about wildly and his eyes glowed brightly. He took
a deep breath, feeling the immense power that surged through him. He felt
the thread of Qi in his mind, as well as the strength rippling through
his muscles and blood. He knew that as of now, he wasn’t in the least

And yet, there was a side-effect. As soon as he reached the tenth level
of Qi Condensation, it seemed as if the Heavens immediately severed any
connection to him. He couldn’t sense any of the power of heaven and
earth, as if he had been completely cut off. He felt a wild sucking
feeling within him, as if he were a newborn child who needed nutrients…
but was denied.
At the moment, his body still appeared to be that of a weak scholar, but
in reality, his flesh was filled with enough strength that he felt as if
he could rip a city wall in half.
Right now, there wasn’t time to consider all of this, though. His eyes
flashed as he looked Shangguan Xiu and the disbelief written on the
man’s face. Meng Hao took in a deep breath and then lifted up his right
hand, pointing his finger toward the wooden swords.
This finger strike contained all the power of Meng Hao’s tenth level of
Qi Condensation, all of his Spiritual Sight, all of the strength of his
This was Meng Hao’s most powerful attack. In fact, this was probably
the most powerful attack than any Qi Condensation stage Cultivator in the
State of Zhao could muster.
A boom rang out as he tapped the wooden sword. It erupted with sword
might, piercing through the three-inch gap and stabbing deeply into
Shangguan Xiu’s chest. A bang sounded out as it stabbed completely
through his chest, emerging from the other side in a shower of blood.
Shangguan Xiu’s body shook, and yet he couldn’t move. His eyes filled
with dread as he sensed massive amounts of spiritual energy flooding out
from the wound. In the blink of an eye, the energy seepage had caught up
with this Foundation Establishment. Now the time it would take to reach
the Foundation Establishment stage was much, much longer.
It was at this time that Meng Hao’s hand lifted up again, and tapped
the other wooden sword. It hummed as it proceeded forward toward
Shangguan Xiu’s neck.
“Meng Hao, you don’t dare to kill me….” Shangguan Xiu was
completely in a panic now. His previous cold arrogance and killing intent
had vanished, replaced with a desperate struggle to evade death.
Meng Hao said nothing. His eyes glowing darkly as the sword he had just
tapped passed through the three-inch gap and stabbed into Shangguan
Xiu’s neck. In the instant that it pierced into his neck, Shangguan Xiu
suddenly twisted his head to the side in an impossible fashion. The
wooden sword sliced open a massive wound which erupted with blood, and
yet it didn’t kill him.

Dread permeated Shangguan Xiu. He could feel his life force beginning to
fade and his spiritual power dissipating. As the spiritual energy poured
out of him, his body was beginning to grow a bit more responsive.
“Meng Hao, there’s no hatred between us that can’t be resolved. If
you let me go, I will give you the Sublime Spirit Scripture….”
Shangguan Xiu couldn’t be any more terrified. Even before he finished
speaking, the two wooden swords circled back, stabbing back through his
chest, showering blood everywhere. Shangguan Xiu let out a blood-curdling
scream filled with weakness and despair.
Meng Hao didn’t care in the least bit when he mentioned the Sublime
Spirit Scripture. His eyes were as hard as ever; it didn’t matter what
Shangguan Xiu said, he wouldn’t stop until he was utterly and
This was Meng Hao. Once he made a decision, he wouldn’t change his mind
