I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-865
Seven days went by. Ling Yunzi and the other two old men gradually began
to decrease their speed, and looks of concentration appeared on their
faces. Although they had made this trip on numerous occasions, every time
they did, it was with the utmost caution. These were the Ruins of
Immortality, not some other random location. Although not every single
step was filled with danger, there were still many shocking things that
could fill even them with senses of deadly crisis.
One misstep, and they might end up being buried in this place.
Furthermore, this was a trial by fire, so if there were any accidents,
they wouldn’t be the only ones who died; all of the people stored
inside their massive sleeves would go along with them.
If that happened, it would be a huge blow to the entire Ninth Mountain
Ling Yunzi and the others stopped in place for a moment to perform some
incantations of augury. Then they exchanged glances, and one of them
commented, “Are the lives of the Chosen from the great sects really
that much more valuable than all the other lives?”
Ling Yunzi shook his head and declined to answer. Whereas the three of
them were personally escorting all of the trial by fire competitors, the
Chosen from the great sects would simply wait for them to arrive at the
ancient Dao Tree. There, a teleportation portal would be set up, and they
could go to the place directly.
The teleportation portal would only be able to remain active for the
space of about ten breaths of time, and could only handle a volume of
about one hundred people. Even that would require a huge expenditure of
That price would be split between the various sects, all to ensure that
their Chosen would reach their destination without any complications.
“There are still ten hours left before the entrance appears,” said
the old man who carried the Spirit Severing competitors. “Why don’t
we rest for a bit?” With that, he sat down cross-legged.
The one who had complained before was the old man carrying the Nascent
Soul cultivators. He gave a cold harrumph and looked off into the
“Let’s bring the competitors out and let them take a look around,”
said Ling Yunzi. “This ten hour period should be relatively safe.” He
swished his sleeve, and the one thousand Dao Seeking cultivators,
including Meng Hao, immediately appeared. Many of them gasped as they
were finally able to personally see the surroundings. Their minds were
clearly shaken, but none of them spoke a single word.

Moments later, the Spirit Severing and Nascent Soul experts appeared in
vast groups. They looked around at their surroundings and sharp
inhalations of breath could be heard everywhere.
“Do nothing rash, and do not stray too far,” Ling Yunzi said, his
voice echoing about. “We are now in the real Ruins of Immortality, and
there are many dangers lurking about. Considering the level of your
cultivation bases, you would never normally be able to come to a place
like this. Since you’re here with us now, take a moment to experience
what it feels like. You can consider this one of your rewards.”
Meng Hao took a deep breath as he looked around. They were surrounded by
mists, some thin, some thick. Many areas radiated intense pressure.
Clearly, there were different areas, some of which were possible for
people of greater power to enter, other areas not so much.
The area they occupied contained the weakest pressure of all.
Furthermore, the three old men were pushing back, reducing the power by
at least half. Even with much of the power being deflected by the three
old men, it was still difficult for many of the competitors to hold up.
The majority of the Nascent Soul and Spirit Severing cultivators were
meditating cross-legged. The remainder that were not forced to focus
fully on fighting back against the pressure, were examining their
surroundings. Among the Dao Seeking cultivators, about half were
meditating, with the remaining several hundred moving about in the area.
Meng Hao walked ahead until he was about three hundred meters out. There,
he stopped. He suddenly had the feeling that the pressure would increase
explosively if he proceeded any further. He stood there silently for a
moment before smacking his bag of holding to produce a flying sword. He
gradually extended it out, and when it went past the three hundred meter
mark, cracking sounds could be heard. Fissures spread out across the
sword, and after a few breaths of time, it disintegrated into ash.
“Five breaths of time,” he thought, his eyes glittering. The flying
sword he had used just now was a Spirit Severing treasure, and yet here,
it could only last for five breaths of time.
Shaking his head, Meng Hao began to back away from the three hundred
meter mark, when suddenly, a voice echoed into his mind.
He stopped in his tracks, and his eyes began to shine with a brilliant
light. As he looked out into the Ruins of Immortality, the voice
continued to echo in his mind. He turned to look at the people behind
him, but apparently, not even Ling Yunzi and the other two could hear
what he was hearing. It seemed that only he could detect the voice.

At the same time that the voice echoed out, the ancient Demon Sealing
Jade in his bag of holding suddenly began to emanate flickering light.
The Demon Sealing Jade had remained dormant for a very long time, but now
it was glowing once again. However, unlike the previous occasions, it did
The voice from moments before continued to speak.
“League of Demon Sealers… come here… come to me….” As the voice
spoke, the mist in front of Meng Hao seemed to weaken and change, as… a
Meng Hao’s mind trembled as he looked at the path. He did not walk
forward, but rather, began to edge backward. He knew that the level of
his cultivation base placed him at the peak of his peers. However, when
you considered the Mountain and Sea Realm as a whole, he was merely in
the Spirit Realm, which made him very weak.
This path might lead to good fortune, but considering the level of his
cultivation base, that good fortune could very well lead to his death.
In the moment that he stepped backward, the voice continued on with even
“The League of Demon Sealers…. I am a member too. Come to me, I shall
give you good fortune…. I shall give you destiny to step upon the
Heavens, to achieve a meteoric rise! You can directly become Immortal!”
The more the voice tried to persuade him, the more Meng Hao backed up.
When he had backed up about thirty meters, the mist in front of him
suddenly began to churn, as if some incredible power were approaching,
heading directly toward Meng Hao.
His face fell, and he began to speed backward. By this time, Ling Yunzi
and the others had sensed that something was happening. Faces flickering,
the three of them immediately sprung into action, pulling all of the
trial by fire competitors back into their sleeves, and at the same time,
striding forward to stand next to Meng Hao. By this point, the swirling
mists had spread to reveal a figure.

It was a cultivator whose body was in a state of decomposition. His head
was half destroyed, and his clothes were tattered. An archaic, rotting
aura emanated out from him, and he was surrounded by swirling mists. In
his hand, he held a tattered banner, and he stood there, staring
listlessly at Ling Yunzi and the others with his one remaining eye.
Ling Yunzi and the other old men stared at the man as if he were a deadly
enemy. Their energy surged, and the light of magical techniques began to
swirl around them.
“Senior, you have already perished,” said Ling Yunzi. “Ashes to
ashes, dust to dust. We of the junior generation are still alive, and are
just passing through here. We disturbed your rest, please forgive us.
Senior, kindly return from whence you came!”
The half-headed figure slowly raised his right hand and pointed a
decomposing finger directly at Meng Hao.
“I… want… him….”
Ling Yunzi’s face fell, as did those of the other two old men.
Breathing heavily, Meng Hao backed up until he was behind the three old
men. As he stared at the figure, his heart trembled. It was at this point
that he noticed that the half-headed man… had a sword stabbed into his
The sword was pitch black and emanated a freezing aura. However, Meng Hao
could also tell that the sword possessed Demon Sealing power. It only
took a moment for him to realize that it was the power of a Demon Sealing
It was at this moment that the ancient Demon Sealing Jade in his bag of
holding finally spoke into his mind with its archaic voice.
“Sixth Demon Sealing Hex!”

Ling Yunzi placed his right hand onto his bag of holding. “Senior,”
he said, “Please don’t push us too far!”
The half-headed man suddenly looked over at him, and flames leapt up
within his single remaining eye. He suddenly lurched forward, the mists
surrounding him seething, as if they contained countless vengeful souls,
screaming miserably. He waved the banner, and rumbling sounds could be
heard as mist poured toward the three old men.
Ling Yunzi’s face flickered and he let out a roar, unhesitatingly
slapping his bag of holding to produce a talisman.
It was an ancient talisman that emanated a boundlessly archaic aura. It
seemed to have existed through countless years of time. All it depicted
was a simple, smiling face. However, as soon as it appeared, the
half-headed man stopped in place, and even the incoming mists stopped,
seemingly stuck permanently in place, not daring to get any closer.
Ling Yunzi took a deep breath, performed an incantation gesture, and then
pointed out. The talisman immediately floated up into midair. At the same
time, Ling Yunzi grabbed Meng Hao and then shot backward at top speed.
The other two old men also retreated, leaving the talisman floating there
in the air.
“I can’t believe we ran into a revenant here. That talisman should
hold it in place for twenty hours.” Ling Yunzi frowned and looked over
at Meng Hao. “How did you draw its attention?”
Meng Hao smiled wryly, unsure of exactly what to say.
“It probably has nothing to do with him,” said the man carrying the
Spirit Severing cultivators, who happened to be from the Immortal Ancient
Daoist Rite. “The revenants here usually just look for people they
think will be suitable to help them to return to life. We’ve run into
them before, haven’t we?”
Meng Hao hesitated for a moment, then asked, “Seniors, what is… a

they died. Those strands of will exist outside of the natural law of the
Mountain and Sea Realm, and continuously attempt to return to life. Those

Meng Hao nodded and looked back at the half-headed man. He had a mind to
go and try to retrieve the sword, but he knew that it was impossible to
do so. Inwardly, he sighed with regret.
Soon, ten hours had passed, and the surrounding mists were churning. Meng
Hao was back in Ling Yunzi’s sleeve, and yet, was still able to see the
world outside. Shockingly, off in the distance… was an indescribably
It was so huge that Meng Hao could do nothing less than gasp. It seemed
larger than a planet, seemingly without end. A cultivator who stood in
front of it would be smaller than an ant.
The corpse appeared to be almost like an enormous continent, hanging
there in the void.
As Ling Yunzi and the other two old men flew forward, they each produced
a magical symbol that caused their bodies to emanate a gray light. They
shot toward the huge body, and in the blink of an eye, touched down onto
it and then sped forward.
Meng Hao looked on gaping as Ling Yunzi and the other two continued
onward for an entire month at an indescribable speed. Despite that, they
still had not crossed the entirety of the corpse. Eventually, a tree
appeared up ahead.
It was a gargantuan, shocking, ancient tree.
Apparently, the tree was growing directly up from within the corpse, as
if it was using the corpse’s blood and flesh as nutrients.
The trunk of the tree stretched high up into the air, until, at a certain
point, two huge branches split off in opposite directions, making it look
like an enormous fork.
The tree was covered with innumerable leaves, each one of which was fully
three hundred meters wide. The leaves did not bend downward, but spread
out evenly like platforms.

“We’re here!” said Ling Yunzi. He and the other two came to a stop,
then waved their hands, causing all of the competitors to fly out from
within their sleeves and land on the tree leaves.
