I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-825
Unfortunately, time was a luxury that Meng Hao did not have!
He was surrounded by Chosen and Dao Protectors from the various clans and
sects of the Ninth Mountain and Sea. Virtually all were present, and even
though he could use Form Displacement Transposition, he still had his
Furthermore, the Chosen and Dao Protectors had now recovered from being
stunned at Meng Hao’s escape from their ambush and were once again
racing to catch up to him.
Meng Hao’s face was pale as he sped along, pursued by Wang Mu and some
other Chosen. Gradually, more and more figures began to gather in pursuit
around him. Although Meng Hao couldn’t actually see any of them, he
could sense them, and knew that there were many.
The one-armed Fan Dong’er was clearly visible behind him giving chase,
although Zhao Yifan was nowhere to be seen.
Meng Hao could also see the Fang clan’s Fang Xiangshan in the crowd.
From the look of things, a grand battle was about to break out. However,
it was at this point that a huge boom rang out. The ground beneath Meng
Hao’s feet quaked, and massive fissures spread out as a mountain peak
up ahead of Meng Hao collapsed into pieces.
As it exploded, a huge beam of majestic light shot out from the ruins of
the mountain. It appeared to be some sort of precious treasure
manifesting itself, and it immediately attracted the attention of all of
Meng Hao’s pursuers.
At the same time, the ground seemed to be on the verge of collapsing. A
huge depression appeared as an enormous yellow loach suddenly exploded
out of the ground that was nearly a thousand meters long. Actually, it
was not one, but a total of nine that appeared.
In an instant, the situation on the battlefield had completely changed.

“A Demon Loach!”
“How could there be a Demon Loach in this place!?!?”
“Dammit! Aren’t Demon Loaches native to Planet North Reed!?”
The entire area was thrown into an uproar as the nine Demon Loaches
roared onto the scene. The ground quaked, and all of a sudden, an urgent
voice transmitted into Meng Hao’s mind.
“Meng Hao, head toward the third Demon Loach!”
Because of the voice, Meng Hao awoke somewhat from his previously hazy
mental state. He looked over at the third Demon Loach, and then instantly
began to speed toward it. As he neared it, the enormous Demon Loach
opened its mouth and swallowed him up, then dove back down toward the
People on ground-level in the area began to call out, and several
attempted to block the diving loach. However, it was at this point that
the rest of the Demon Loaches spontaneously exploded. Massive booms
rattled out over the land. At the same time, the bright light shining
from the mountain reached a pinnacle of intensity, covering all the land
until no one could see anything except the light.
Eventually, the light got so bright that it turned into blackness!
As for Meng Hao, everything went dark after being swallowed by the Demon
Loach. However, he could feel that the creature was moving along at high
speed, so he sat down cross-legged and rotated his cultivation base. He
quickly began to exorcise the Demonic will, then consumed large
quantities of medicinal pills to begin his healing process.
Meng Hao had been quite seriously injured in the battle just now.
However, throughout his life, he had been seriously injured on many
occasions, so from beginning to end, he was calm inside.

Time passed. A few days later, the Demon Loach finally stopped moving,
and instead sank downward into the earth. Meng Hao’s eyes opened, and
he saw that there were three people with him inside of the Demon
Loach’s tunnel-like body.
The person in the lead position was a woman wearing a veil. It was
impossible to see her features clearly, but her eyes were beautiful, and
from that it was possible to tell that the woman herself was stunning.
Standing on either side of her were two old women, both of whom were
ancient, with faces covered with wrinkles. They seemed to have seen many
years between them, and their eyes were dim. Of course, within that
dimness was hidden storm-like violence.
Meng Hao looked at the woman and calmly said, “We haven’t seen each
other for years.”
The woman was none other than Zhixiang!
One of the old women standing next to Zhixiang coolly said, “The
kindness you showed to the Demon Immortal Sect has been paid back to you
by us two this day. Our Demon Loach has already taken you away from the
the deadly ambush set for you by Ji Yin.”
The woman glanced at the bronze lamp above Meng Hao’s head, then looked
away and said nothing further. She, along with the other Dao Protector,
sat down cross-legged.
Zhixiang stepped forward to stand in front of Meng Hao. After looking him
over for a moment, she covered her mouth with her hand and laughed.
Despite the fact that her face was covered by a veil, her laughter was
sweet and attractive.
“Like I said, the Demon Immortal Sect was deeply in your debt,” she
said. She extended her right hand toward Meng Hao, within which was a
jade bottle. “This is a medicinal pill, an ancient medicine from the
Demon Immortal Sect. It should heal your wounds rapidly.”

Meng Hao didn’t respond, nor was he surprised by any of this. The
urgent voice he had heard transmitted into his mind earlier had belonged
He took the jade bottle and opened it up. There was a red medicinal pill
inside, which, based on his skill in the Dao of alchemy, he could
instantly tell was extraordinary. After a moment of consideration, he
picked up the medicinal pill, examined it closely, then swallowed it.
“You’re not afraid?” Zhixiang asked suddenly.
“There is nobody in the lands of South Heaven who can harm me,” Meng
Hao said calmly.
“Oh? What about that deadly ambush just now?”
“I was tempering myself through training. If there was really a chance
that I was going to die, things would have changed.” With that, he
closed his eyes, which caused the two old women to open their own eyes
and look at him.
The pill contained no poison, and as soon as he consumed it, it
transformed into a warm current that flowed through his body. The injury
on his back immediately healed up, and black mist slowly seeped out of
the palm of his right hand.
A few days passed, and by the time Meng Hao opened his eyes again, his
hand was filled with a black mist that was the Devil Construct, which was
now completely forced out of his body.
Having expelled the Devil Construct, Meng Hao felt his heart pounding in
trepidation. The danger he had faced in this incident was not the threat
to his life, but rather, the influence of the Devilish will. Although the
Devil Construct could give him access to incredible power, he had to pay
a steep price for that.
Now that the Devil Construct was taken care of, Meng Hao’s injuries
were nearly completely recovered.

“Thank you,” he said to the two seated old women, and Zhixiang.
Zhixiang looked at the Devil Construct in Meng Hao’s hand, thought for
a moment, and then looked at Meng Hao.
“Ji Yin sealed your second true self and took him away.
Meng Hao’s eyes glittered coldly.
“That’s fine,” he replied. “I’ll just have to go get him
back.” With that, he rose to his feet, clasped hands, and bowed deeply
to Zhixiang and the two old women. “Many thanks to you.”
“There’s no need to be so polite,” replied Zhixiang. “We were
simply repaying you for the favor from that year.” The two old women
merely looked deeply at Meng Hao.
Zhixiang smiled. Seeing that Meng Hao wished to depart, she waved her
hand, causing a spinning vortex to appear behind him. Within the vortex
could be seen the mountain range in the outside world.
“Regardless, I will remember what you have done for me this day,”
said Meng Hao. He bowed again, then gave Zhixiang one final look.
Zhixiang couldn’t prevent her heart from quivering a bit as she
recalled everything that had happened back in the ancient Demon Immortal
Meng Hao turned and walked toward the portal.
“I heard you got married. Is it true?” asked Zhixiang.

Meng Hao stopped walking.
“Congratulations,” Zhixiang said with the same calm smile as ever.
“Oh, there’s one other bit of news that I wanted to tell you. It
won’t be long now before something big happens in the Ninth Mountain
and Sea. The Three Great Daoist Societies will be hosting a disciple
recruitment event, which will be supported by the Five Great Holy Lands,
and the Three Churches and Six Sects!
“This sort of thing happens every so often, and when the time comes,
any cultivator in the Ninth Mountain and Sea who is above the Nascent
Soul stage and below the Immortal Realm may participate.
“Some people do it in the hopes of joining a sect. Others do it for the
precious treasures that are prepared as rewards for the momentous
Meng Hao’s eyes filled with a look of concentration. After a moment of
thought, he nodded his head and then walked into the vortex, whereupon he
Silence reigned inside the Demon Loach. The two old women’s eyes
flickered as they exchanged a hesitant glance.
“He did me a great favor,” said Zhixiang calmly.
The two old women nodded.
“Oh well. He appeared to be injured, but he is obviously as cautious as
ever. A Chosen like him would definitely have other tricks up his sleeve.

“Besides, after he woke up, he appeared to be confident in having
someone to back him. Now that I think about it, that makes sense,
especially considering he was able to get into the Immortal Ancient
Daoist Rite Temple before everyone else.”
Meng Hao left the Demon Loach via the vortex, emerging beneath an evening
sky. A tongue of flame appeared in the bronze lamp above his head, which
caused Meng Hao to breathe a sigh of relief.
The lamp was still unextinguished, and if Meng Hao’s calculations were
correct, there were only four more days left of the 49 day period.
“Four days….” he thought, a cold gleam appearing in his eyes.
“In four days, the good fortune of the bronze lamp will be completed.
When that happens, I won’t have anything holding me back from making
all of these people pay the price for coming here!” He snorted coldly
and then disappeared as he flashed off into the distance.
The first thing he did was find a suitable place to act as a hidden
Immortal’s cave. He sat down cross-legged to meditate and wait for time
As the days went by, the situation in the outside world reached a frenzy.
In the boundless mountain range, numerous Chosen and Dao Protectors had
spread out in all directions in their search for Meng Hao.
They had set up sealing spells all over the mountains to ensure that Meng
Hao couldn’t flee. They literally did everything in their power to find
traces of him.
The battle that had resulted from the ambush made it so that none of his
pursuers looked down on him any more. In fact, to them, he was now viewed
as the cream of the crop when it came to the Chosen.

After all, any other Chosen who ended up trapped in an ambush like he had
been, would surely have been killed!
In contrast, Meng Hao had seriously injured Zhao Yifan, severed Fan
Dong’er’s limb, and severely hurt a Dao Protector. During the
process, he himself had been seriously injured, and yet had managed to
escape from the ambush.
Although quite a few people could tell that he had received aid in the
end, his reputation was still rapidly growing!
One could imagine how, after all these people left Planet South Heaven,
they would spread word of Meng Hao’s escapades throughout the Ninth
Mountain and Sea!
He had suppressed Taiyang Zi, sealed Song Luodan, captured Li Ling’er
and crushed Sun Hai and Fang Yunyi.
Because of him, Fan Dong’er was transformed from being a Goddess into a
woman haunted by a ghost, and had also lost a limb. Zhao Yifan was
seriously injured, and had retreated from battle. He had injured a Dao
Protector, and evaded the search of roughly a thousand people for days.
All of that… was enough to leave any Chosen completely shaken.
As of this point, Meng Hao’s tempering was complete.
And yet… he wasn’t satisfied!
“The end is almost here!”
The four day period was over. As the search continued in the outside
world, Meng Hao’s eyes opened, and were filled with anticipation
regarding the bronze lamp.
