I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-854
“He found it!” In the palace, the old men from the Three Great Daoist
Societies were all watching with brightly shining eyes. This was
especially true of the old man from the Immortal Ancient Daoist Rite,
whose entire face glowed with unprecedented brightness.
“He is the first person from ancient times until now to tread the
Ancient Road with a Spirit Realm cultivation base and find the Pāramitā
“He can only observe from a distance, not get near. Based on his divine
sense and willpower, he should be able to determine that it isn’t safe.
He won’t brazenly get close.”
“That depends on his good fortune. In these worlds of the sixth,
seventh, and eighth stages, time passes differently than in the outside
world. Actually, contemplating enlightenment for one day in there is like
spending ten years at it out here!”
Murmured conversations filled the palace.
In contrast, the crowds in the Ninth Mountain and Sea were buzzing with
When they saw the 99th dot of light, everyone knew exactly what it meant.
Everyone was in an uproar, and now, the name Fang Mu was deeply imprinted
in the hearts of everyone present.
Even as everyone on the outside was in a tumult, Meng Hao opened his
eyes. He breathed heavily for a moment, then gritted his teeth and closed
his eyes again. He sent his divine sense out to once again observe the
nine astonishing bridges.
The bridges appeared to be complete, but Meng Hao knew that if they had
been, he would have been killed simply by looking at them. Right now,
even observing them from a distance caused him to be injured. Actually,
it was a good thing the bridges were broken down. Otherwise, considering
his cultivation base, as soon as his divine sense touched them, he would
have been completely annihilated.
“Nine Heaven-defying bridges like this were actually destroyed….
These are no mere bridges! They were obviously especially created to
allow cultivators to experience incredible cultivation base growth, to be
able to punch through to an incredible realm of power!

“I never imagined that I would be able to see something like this here!
This is extremely good fortune for me!” As he thought about it, Meng
Hao’s mind suddenly trembled.
“There was never any rule about only being able to create one divine
ability…. In that case, why not create two?” Originally, Meng Hao had
already devised a plan to create a divine ability, but after seeing the
nine bridges, a new form of enlightenment had appeared in his mind, which
then transformed into the shape of a divine ability. Furthermore, he
didn’t wish to give up on either of the two ideas.
The first divine ability aligned perfectly with his personality. As for
the second one, Meng Hao sincerely desired to possess it.
He took a deep breath and then decided to stop thinking about it. He
focused his divine sense on the nine bridges, and on resisting the
pressure. Not only was he imprinting the image of the bridge onto his
mind, he decided to try to get a bit closer, to acquire a bit of good
fortune from the pressure weighing down.
Time slowly passed by.
Ten days later, only four people remained. The other three had finally
realized they couldn’t continue to gain enlightenment from the Immortal
ruins, and had decided to create their divine abilities. Of those three,
the individual who had found the most Immortal ruins had found 76.
The divine abilities they created were powerful. One of them caused
eleven stone steles to descend, which provoked a lot of attention.
Ten more days passed, and of the four remaining people on the Ancient
Roads, two of them could not continue, and chose to create their divine
abilities. One of them was the young man with the mosquitos, who had
found 89 Immortal ruins. At that point, he created a thirteen-stele
Quite a few people were astonished by this, and the young man quickly
rose to prominence.
As of this moment, there were only two people left on the Ancient Road.
One of them was Meng Hao, and the other was the young man in the mask, Li

Li Yan had already found the 93rd Immortal ruin, and was now the second
person in the trial by fire to have exceeded Sir Fan.
He and Meng Hao were the focus of the attention of the entire Ninth
Mountain and Sea.
Three more days passed. Meng Hao coughed up some blood, and his vision
went blurry. During the more than twenty days that had passed, he had
sustained injuries on multiple occasions as he forced himself to continue
to contemplate the nine bridges, and imprint their image on his mind.
It was difficult, but with his intense willpower, he was slowly but
surely able to continue to grind away. He was not so wildly ambitious
that he intended to commit all nine bridges to memory, only the first one.
Finally, the twenty-first day arrived. In this special location,
contemplating enlightenment for that amount of time was like spending
more than two hundred years on the outside. Rumbling filled Meng Hao’s
mind, and his eyes shone with the glow of enlightenment as the full image
of the first bridge materialized in front of him.
In that instant, deep within his mind, he was able to sense exactly how
damaged the bridge was. Suddenly, ninety-nine percent of the bridge
actually vanished, and he found that the first bridge was actually…
nothing more than a fist-sized rock!
It was a mere stone, but even looking at it caused Meng Hao to cough up
blood, and he knew that if he approached it, he would be destroyed in
body and spirit. These more than twenty days of contemplation were like
two hundred or more years in the outside world.
In the moment that he understood the real situation regarding the first
bridge, and the outline of the bridge itself appeared in his mind, images
began to appear in his eyes, a vision.
Within the vision were nine enormous suns hauling an astonishing statue.
They seemed so large that they were impossible to see the ends of. An
army of countless cultivators lashed out with attacks that ripped a huge
hole in the air, which they then entered.
Behind the shocking statue were nine astonishing bridges that shook the
heavens. Boundless light that covered everything radiated off of them.

The scene caused Meng Hao’s mind to tremble, and reminded him of the
things he had seen back in the Immortal Ancient Daoist Rite Temple. Some
of the images were almost exactly the same. 1
Then, the vision changed. He saw a world-shaking war. Countless living
things were being slaughtered, and heavenly bodies collapsed. The starry
sky shattered, and in every breath of time, endless numbers of lives
The nine bridges exerted incredible pressure, causing the starry sky to
begin to collapse. Next, Meng Hao saw three enormous figures appear up
above. When they joined forces, the starry sky disappeared, and the world
went black, as if all the auras in existence were absorbed, condensed to
form nine mountains, which then crushed down toward the nine bridges.
The bridges… shattered!
The vision abruptly ended. Meng Hao had no time to thoroughly analyze the
images before they vanished. He was left standing there, his jaw slack,
his eyes wide. His mind was blank and trembling.
“Those nine mountains….” Meng Hao was panting. From what he could
sense, he had only been able to glimpse a tiny bit of some huge secret.
“Why does the world I live in consist of only nine mountains and nine
seas, with four planets circling around each of those mountains?!
“I never thought about it too much before, but how come Planet South
Heaven is so special? Why did that Outsider want my parents to guard it?!
“Also, what about that place I went to underneath the Ancient Dao Lakes
on Planet South Heaven? That being which was crushed and then sealed
there said something like… Immortals are the source of all chaos! 2
“What exactly does that mean?!” Meng Hao’s breathing was
unprecedentedly ragged, and he was shivering all over. He now had an idea
of what it all meant, but didn’t dare to consider that it was true.

As his mind trembled, the nine bridges in front of him vanished. This
time, they really were gone; even when Meng Hao searched with his divine
sense, he was unable to find them.
After a long moment of silence, Meng Hao sighed lightly. The matter of
the vision was something far removed from the current situation, and
considering the level of his cultivation base, he wasn’t really
qualified to begin to probe such secrets.
“One day, I’ll understand it all!” he thought, his eyes shining
with determination. He took a deep breath and sent his divine sense out
one last time. Seeing that it was impossible to locate the bridges, he
decided to search for the Immortal pavilion that Ling Yunzi had mentioned.
Several days later, he still remained empty handed. No matter what
methods he used, even closing his eyes, he was unable to detect any
Immortal pavilion. In fact, he was now fairly certain that he would be
unable to find it at all, so he decided to sit down cross-legged in the
location where the nine bridges had stood, and begin to create his divine
He quickly slipped into a trance.
Many ideas and thoughts flitted through his mind, as well as numerous
flickering images. The enlightenment he had received in the 99 Immortal
ruins began to merge together, until finally, a will exploded out from
within his mind that was a divine ability belonging solely to him.
As Meng Hao was piecing together the enlightenment to create a divine
ability, Li Yan had passed the 95th Immortal ruin, but could not find the
After a while, he had no choice but to stop regretfully and begin to
create his divine ability.
By this point, everyone out in the Ninth Mountain and Sea, as well as the
Patriarchs in the starry sky palace, were now waiting to see what types
of divine abilities Meng Hao and Li Yan would create.
There was something else going on that nobody in the palace noticed.
Although the elders from the Three Great Daoist Societies seemed to be
looking at the vortex screens with glittering eyes, deep within their
gazes could be seen faint sighs of disappointment.

Such sighs were deeply hidden, yet seemed to be a disappointment that was
not entirely unexpected.
Days passed, and the anticipation among the audience out in the Ninth
Mountain and Sea only continued to grow.
“Just what types of divine abilities are Fang Mu and Li Yan creating?
Which one will have the most stone steles?!”
“My guess is Fang Mu. After all, he gained enlightenment from 99
Immortal ruins. That’s unheard of!”
“It won’t necessarily be Fang Mu. It could be that he just took
advantage of some lucky situations. In the end, I bet the best divine
ability will be created by Li Yan!”
“If neither of them can create a sixteen-stele divine ability, then
that means Wang Youcai will take first place in the sixth, seventh, and
Two more days passed, when suddenly the area around the masked Li Yan
burst into flames.
The flames were black, and instantly set the Heavens ablaze. Li Yan’s
eyes opened, and his pupils were composed entirely of fire!
Flames roared all around him, covering the land, burning everything. The
entire world became a sea of flames, and then began to melt, as if it
couldn’t sustain the heat. The people outside in the Ninth Mountain and
Sea were now able to clearly see Li Yan and everything that was happening
in his world.
Gasps rang out from many areas in the Ninth Mountain and Sea, and in the
palace in the starry sky, the Patriarchs looked on with strange gleams in
their eyes. The old man from the Bones of the Flamedevil, one of the Five
Great Holy Lands, couldn’t help but observe with wide, glowing eyes.

“Li Yan is incredible! What type of flame divine ability did he create?
It can actually melt the entire world!”
“He’ll definitely get at least sixteen steles. His divine ability
appears to be on a similar level as Wang Youcai’s, but from the feel of
it, it’s more powerful!”
Li Yan slowly stood, a proud expression on his face beneath the mask.
Then, he breathed in three times.
Each breath caused everything to tremble, and the flame sea to spread out
even farther. After three breaths, the entire world was engulfed in
flames. Finally, Li Yan inhaled deeply.
When he inhaled, all of the flames in the world began to churn and roil,
tumbling toward Li Yan as he sucked them into his body.
Next, a rumbling sound emanated out from his body, and although no one
could see any flames, when they looked at Li Yan himself, it caused them
to feel twinges of pain like that caused by fire.
“A body magic!”
“Heavens! That’s the most difficult thing to create! A body magic!!”
“It’s not just any body magic, that’s almost a Daoist magic!”
“Although it’s not a complete Daoist magic, it’s definitely unique.
If in the future he continues to cultivate it to the peak, there’s a
high likelihood he could refine it into a true legacy Daoist magic!!”
