I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-841
“The next time we meet,” murmured Meng Hao, “it will be out in the
starry sky.” The departure of Pill Demon, Chu Yuyan, and the others,
was too sudden, and left him feeling empty.
He thought back to his hundreds of years of cultivation, and it seemed
like there many people who had ended up departing, and were no longer in
the lands of South Heaven.
Patriarch Reliance was gone. Xu Qing was gone. Pill Demon was gone. Chu
Yuyan was gone….
Thankfully, Fatty, Chen Fan, and the others were still there. There were
some people Meng Hao wasn’t sure about; the 10th Wang Clan Patriarch
for example, Han Bei from the former Black Sieve Sect, and of course Dong
Hu, who had joined the Reliance Sect at the same time as him.
Meng Hao sighed. He did not leave the Southern Domain along with his
father. Instead, he went to the Golden Frost Sect. He and Fatty drank
together. Fatty sent his more than one hundred beloved concubines away,
and he and Meng Hao sat on top of a mountain, drinking and talking about
They talked about the State of Zhao, and about Yunjie County. They talked
about the Reliance Sect, and everything that had happened there.
Eventually, evening fell, and the stars slowly came out. It was
impossible to tell how much exactly they had drunk.
“I’m going to join the disciple recruitment event held by the Three
Great Daoist Societies of the Ninth Mountain and Sea!” declared Fatty,
tossing aside his alcohol flagon and looking determinedly over at Meng
Hao. “I don’t want to be stuck in the lands of South Heaven for the
rest of my life. I want to go out into the starry sky!”
Meng Hao looked back at Fatty. He himself had heard from Zhixiang about
the Three Great Daoist Societies’ disciple recruitment trial by fire.
News about the matter had now spread throughout the entire Ninth Mountain
and Sea, even here to Planet South Heaven.
Fatty gazed at Meng Hao with an expression of determination.
“You don’t need to say anything,” Fatty continued. “I know that
you won’t stay in the lands of South Heaven for much longer either.
Your path exists in the starry sky. Well, we’re brothers, so if you go,
then I won’t stay behind! I’m going to give it a shot!”

Meng Hao didn’t respond at first. He simply lifted his wine flagon and
took a drink, looked at Fatty, and smiled.
Then he said, “Considering those teeth of yours, you’ll definitely
get some good fortune!”
Fatty laughed uproariously, then grabbed a flying sword and began to file
at his teeth. The two of them laughed together, and then continued to
chat until the sky turned bright. Meng Hao stayed with Fatty for a few
days before leaving. The next stop on his journey through the Southern
Domain was to visit Chen Fan.
Chen Fan sat as he always did, next to the mountain boulder. Meng Hao
meditated silently next to him. Chen Fan no longer drank alcohol, but the
stubble of a beard was still visible on his chin. An abstruse gleam could
be seen deep in his eyes, but most of his time was spent gazing at the
boulder, as if he were immersed in memories.
Meng Hao didn’t interrupt him, but rather sat next to him for an entire
When the sky grew bright and the time had come for Meng Hao to leave,
Chen Fan suddenly said, “I’ve decided to go to the trial by fire held
by the Three Great Daoist Societies.”
Meng Hao nodded and left.
His next stop was the Blood Demon Sect. He saw Wang Youcai, who, much
like Fatty and Chen Fan, was interested in the trial by fire.
He also decided to participate, to take a chance for his future.
Meng Hao didn’t see Patriarch Blood Demon. Outside of Patriarch Blood
Demon’s Immortal’s cave, Meng Hao could sense a dense aura of death.
He stood there for a long time before finally clasping hands and bowing

“Senior, I will never forget your kindness in helping me to Sever the
Devil and Seek the Dao!” He bowed again.
The aura of death was the same as ever as Meng Hao finally turned to
leave. Off in the distance, he could see the valley where he and Xu Qing
had spent their final days together, as well as the location where they
had been married.
It was a mountain, on one side of which were the beautiful memories of Xu
Qing, on the other side of which was carnage and battle. That was where
he and Xu Qing had been married.
As he gazed at the location, Meng Hao suddenly felt very lonely. After
staring for a long moment, he finally left.
Now, he wasn’t sure where to go in these sprawling lands. All he could
do was look up into the starry sky.
“Perhaps it’s time for me to leave as well.”
Two months passed in the blink of an eye. Meng Hao went to the Milky Way
Sea, to the Western Desert, to the Northern Reaches, and finally to the
Eastern Lands. Eventually, the day came when the sky began to rumble, and
the music of a great Dao spread out in all directions. Three enormous,
multi-colored vortexes appeared in the sky.
The three vortexes’ rotation caused a sound to echo out that could be
heard by all cultivators in the lands of South Heaven. Be they in the
Western Desert or the Southern Domain, in the Northern Reaches or the
Eastern Lands, in that instant they could all see the three bizarre
vortexes up above.
They looked like they were up in the sky, but actually, they existed in
Regardless of where the cultivators were located, as long as their
cultivation bases met the requirements, and they had the desire to seek
the Dao and find good fortune, then all they had to do was take a step
forward and enter the vortex.

At the same time the vortexes appeared, an archaic voice echoed out from
within them. Everything trembled, and no natural law could prevent the
voice from echoing out as if from ancient times, striking fear into the
hearts of all.
“The trial by fire was founded by the Three Great Daoist Societies, the
Five Great Holy Lands, and the Three Churches and Six Sects!
“Anyone in the Ninth Mountain and Sea may participate, regardless of
background, regardless of age, as long as the cultivation base
requirement is met!
“The three vortexes are for the Nascent Soul stage, the Spirit Severing
stage, and the Dao Seeking stage!
“First, walk upon the Ancient Road. The ten thousand people who reach
the end the fastest will be able to participate in the honorable trial by
“Of those ten thousand people, seven thousand will be from the Nascent
Soul stage, two thousand from Spirit Severing, and one thousand from Dao
Seeking! Cultivators of the Ninth Mountain and Sea…. let the trial by
Planet South Heaven trembled. Everyone knew that the enormous disciple
recruitment trial by fire held by the Three Great Daoist Societies… was
Countless cultivators were prepared to participate. Their blood boiled at
the possible good fortune in front of them. Without becoming Immortal, it
was impossible to tread through the starry sky. Therefore, if they could
seize this opportunity, they could have a meteoric rise, and be like a
fish leaping from the sea into the heavens.
Simultaneously, similar vortexes appeared on Planet North Reed, Planet
East Victory and Planet West Felicity, along with an identical voice with
identical words. It was the same in the Ninth Sea and the Ninth Mountain.
Throughout all locations in the Ninth Mountain and Sea, the voice echoed
out, and three vortexes appeared.
The Ninth Mountain and Sea was completely abuzz, and countless
cultivators were filled with determination, and hearts that wished to
search for the Dao. They flew up toward the vortexes from innumerable

More than ten thousand people flew up from the lands of South Heaven
alone. Most were Nascent Soul cultivators, who flew into the Nascent Soul
vortex to tread the Ancient Road of the Nascent Soul. There were a
smaller group who flew into the Spirit Severing vortex.
The smallest group was that which walked… the Ancient Road of Dao
If you looked at the Ninth Mountain and Sea as a whole, it was really
impossible to tell how many people tread the Ancient Roads.
This was a grand event for the entire Ninth Mountain and Sea, so the
Three Great Daoist Societies, the Five Great Holy Lands and the Three
Churches and Six Sects all sent people to stand guard over the three
These three roads had a long history. They might be called Ancient Roads,
but in truth, they comprised an ancient set of crumbled ruins within the
Ninth Mountain and Sea. Within those ruins existed uncountable good
fortune, and they had supposedly existed longer than the Ninth Mountain
In truth, the three roads were only a small portion of the larger set of
ruins that the Three Great Daoist Societies exercised control over. The
fact that the roads were opening now aroused ambitions in countless
hearts in the Ninth Mountain and Sea.
This was especially true because… these ruins were called the Ruins of
Immortality, and in the past, people had discovered Immortality
Illumination Vines there. That was what had changed the entire structure
of true Immortality in the Ninth Mountain and Sea. Furthermore, the other
eight great Mountains and Seas had similar ruins in them.
Most areas inside of the ruins were restricted areas. This was especially
true in the depths of the ruins. If you entered those places, you would
almost certainly die. Throughout countless years, only the most powerful
of experts had ever dared to travel into the depths of the Ruins of
Immortality, and virtually no one had ever emerged alive.
Rumor had it that Lord Li had traveled into the depths of the ruins, but
as for what had happened there, no one knew. They only knew that the
Dharma Clone he had left behind issued the Dharmic decree regarding
returning fate to the Heavens.
It was because of that Dharmic decree that, in following days, Lord Ji
replaced the Heavens, which in turn drew the support of most of the
powers within the Ninth Mountain and Sea.

There was another rumor that in the great Nine Mountains and Seas,
regardless of which Mountain or Sea, anyone who could gain enlightenment
regarding the secrets of the Ruins of Immortality, would become the
Overlord of all the Nine Mountains and Seas.
Although this was a generally acknowledged point, no one could actually
accomplish it, not even Ksitigarbha, the Lord of the Fourth Mountain and
Now that the trial by fire had begun, countless figures vanished into the
three vortexes. Fatty, Chen Fan, Wang Youcai, and others all decided to
take a chance to try to get some good fortune.
As for Meng Hao, he sat cross-legged underneath a towering tree in the
Fang Clan of the Eastern Lands, looking up at the three enormous
vortexes. After sitting there quietly for a moment looking at the
flashing vortexes, a strange light gleamed in his eyes.
“You have the Immortal Ancient Dao Medallion, so if you want to join
the Immortal Ancient Daoist Rite, then you don’t have to participate in
the trial by fire.” The voice came from Meng Hao’s father, Fang
Xiufeng, who strolled up from behind him. He stood behind Meng Hao and
continued, “Furthermore, there is always the danger of perishing in the
trial by fire. Aren’t you scared of that?”
“Other than the chance to join one of the Three Great Daoist Societies,
is there any other good fortune to be had?” asked Meng Hao.
“Of course there is!” replied his father. “If you get first place,
then you can acquire a precious treasure. Considering the resources at
the Three Great Daoist Societies’ disposal, even I would be excited at
the prospect of getting a magical item from them.
“Furthermore, father can tell you another secret. In addition to the
founders of the Three Great Daoist Societies, the founders of the Four
Great Clans, the Five Holy Lands, and the three Churches and Six Sects…
all previously walked the Ancient Roads of the Ruins of Immortality!
“It was there that they acquired the unimaginable good fortune that
allowed them to found their various clans and sects.
“It was the same with the Fang Clan Ancestor. That was where he
acquired the bloodline that has ensured that the Fang Clan stands tall in
the Ninth Mountain and Sea. That, of course, is…. the Fang Clan’s
Four Lives Awakening!”

“Dad, did you go there?” asked Meng Hao.
Fang Xiufeng didn’t respond at first. After a long moment, he shook his
“Originally, your mother and I planned to wait for you to grow up, then
we planned to take a trip there.”
When he looked at his father, Meng Hao could sense that some amount of
regret existed in his heart. He glanced back up at the three vortexes,
and then a gleam of determination appeared in his eyes.
“Dad, I want to go.”
“If you want to go, then go. We cultivators should never be afraid of
dying!” Fang Xiufeng looked at Meng Hao, and the love in his eyes was
clear, as was the look of encouragement.
“At the end of the Ancient Road are the arena matches. Actually… I
hope that you do participate in this event!
“Do you know why your father’s name is known throughout the Ninth
Mountain and Sea, and is even known in other Mountains and Seas? That’s
because even when I was in the Spirit Realm, I never shrank from a fight
with anyone in the same stage as me. I fought and killed my way to the
place I am now. I passed up all the members of my same generation,
suppressed them, and seized destiny. That is how to become powerful!
“Never forget, the word cultivation 修行 is made of two characters,
修 which implies studying and practice, and 行 which implies action. It
is not enough to just have 修, the studying and learning. You must also
have 行, action…. You must always strive forward; that is the way to
reach the pinnacle of power!”
Meng Hao coughed dryly, and a bashful smile appeared on his face.

“Dad, I can’t really identify with your path. I think… getting all
of the Chosen in the Ninth Mountain and Sea to owe me money is the ideal
Fang Xiufeng’s jaw dropped as Meng Hao chuckled and then flew into the
air. His body flashed as he flew toward the Dao Seeking vortex. He took a
deep breath, and without any further hesitation, entered.
