I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-868
“Looking to die!?” said the hulking man with a malicious grin. He was
clearly not pleased with Meng Hao’s plan to end the fight with one
punch. Sneering inwardly, he redoubled the power he was putting into his
attack, and also unleashed a forbidden technique of his sect, which
further increased its power by thirty percent.
He didn’t just want to win, he wanted to kill his opponent, and he
seemed very excited at the prospect of ending the life of the first place
competitor who was also a future Conclave disciple of the Ninth Sea God
Killing someone in an arena match was nothing anyone could complain
about, so there was little danger of repercussions. His sect would reward
him, and even more importantly, protect him.
What he saw was a chance to make great advancement with little effort,
right there in front of him.
“DIE!” he roared, his eyes bursting with a murderous look as he
caused the Seven Seas Dragon to suddenly grow another vicious head, which
also snapped toward Meng Hao.
It was at this point that Meng Hao’s fist connected with the dragon.
It was only one punch, but that punch slammed into the dragon with an
enormous boom. A violent tremor ran through it, and then its first head
cracked and exploded. The second head also exploded, and then, bit by
bit, its body.
The seven seas rumbled briefly and then collapsed, vanishing in the blink
of an eye, as if they had never been there to begin with. At this point,
Meng Hao’s fist slammed into the hulking man’s chest.
The big man’s eyes went wide as he looked at Meng Hao, and his face
twisted. Meng Hao’s expression was calm as he pulled his hand back and
walked off to the edge of the arena.
In the instant he turned, blood sprayed from the hulking man’s mouth.
Fissures spread out from the point of impact on his chest, and in the
blink of an eye, they had covered his entire body. A look of disbelief
could be seen on his face, and he opened his mouth to say something.
Before any words could come out, though, he exploded.

As the haze of blood and gore blasted out, Meng Hao reached the edge of
the arena and sat down cross-legged. The entire time, only one, placid
expression could be seen on his face. He reached up to wipe a drop of
blood off of his cheek, then closed his eyes.
Gasps could be heard from the audiences outside in the Ninth Mountain and
Sea as they watched Meng Hao in terrified shock.
“That was still… just one punch!!”
“Heavens! Just exactly how powerful is this Fang Mu!? That Chosen from
the Seven Seas Sect could match up to a false Immortal, and yet he
collapsed from a single punch! Fang Mu hasn’t even punched two times
“Four matches, and he only punched one time each! Fang Mu is way too
“He’s already in the top 100, with only four punches!!”
Even the eyes of the Patriarchs in the starry sky palace went wide.
Meng Hao was the focus of the attention of all the Chosen from the
various sects, and was now viewed by most of them as a major adversary.
Even Zhao Yifan was wondering whether or not he could beat the Seven Seas
Sect’s Chosen with only one punch. Of course, if he used a sword, he
was confident he could.
Rumbling booms continued to echo out as the fourth round of arena matches
proceeded. There was another battle that was particularly eye-catching.
In fact, after Meng Hao’s match ended, most eyes among the audiences in
the Ninth Mountain and Sea turned to watch it.
That battle was the match being fought by a disciple from the Holy Land
of Mount Sun, the illustrious Taiyang Zi!

His body was surrounded by boundless light, making him look almost like a
sun. His opponent was a boy, the same competitor Meng Hao had noticed
earlier, and had been paying special attention to.
From what Meng Hao could tell, he possessed at least thirty percent of
the power of a true Immortal.
When the battle started, most of the spectators were confident that
Taiyang Zi would come out victorious. And yet, contrary to all
speculations, he actually lost!
Furthermore, it was an incredible defeat. If he hadn’t uttered the
words ‘I concede,’ then he would almost certainly have died. The
boy’s magic caused a bloody glow to emanate out, and it seemed
incredibly bloodthirsty. The sight of it caused quite a stir among the
crowds, and many of the cultivators participating in the arena matches
“Junior Blood Immortal! That was one of the names that came up in the
trial by fire!”
“He actually defeated Taiyang Zi!”
“He’s making his rise to the top!!”
While the outside audiences were discussing the matter, Meng Hao looked
over at the boy to find him looking back with killing intent flickering
in his eyes.
Two hours later, the fourth round of matches ended. There were now only a
bit over sixty people left in the competition. The next round… would
determine the top 32!
From more than a thousand people, 32 would move on! One could imagine
that even if there were a weak person among that number who had happened
to overcome more powerful people by chance, then that luck could be
considered an aspect of their power.

“The top 32 are about to be determined!”
“Even some of the top Chosen from the great sects were defeated in the
previous fights. I wonder who will make it to the top 32!”
While the outside audiences buzzed, Ling Yunzi stood below the ancient
Dao Tree and glanced over the more than sixty competitors who remained.
“In the Dao Seeking arena matches,” he announced, “the most
powerful people will form the top 32. Unfortunately, you have three too
many people to make all the matches even. Therefore, some of you will be
fighting more than one battle to make it into the top 32. As for who
those people are, only the Heavens know. It will all be up to the Dao
“You will have four hours to rest, after which the battles to determine
the top 32 will begin!”
During those four hours, Meng Hao sat there cross-legged, meditating. He
could sense that there were many people watching him, but he didn’t
open his eyes. Considering the level of his cultivation base, he was
clearly at the pinnacle of the competitors in the arena matches. Were it
not for the Immortal jades and the precious treasures, he would never
However, now that he was here, there were a few people who had attracted
his interest. Unfortunately, he had yet to face them as opponents.
Four hours later, glittering light covered the leaves of the Dao Tree,
teleporting Meng Hao and all the remaining contestants up to the next
level of leaves. From within the glittering light in front of Meng Hao, a
young woman stepped out.
She wore a blood-colored robe, and a white mask. This was the Chosen from
the Church of the Blood Orchid, and as soon as she caught sight of Meng
Hao, she stopped in her tracks. However, it took only a moment for her to
emanate a powerful will to fight.
The intensity of that will caused Meng Hao’s eyes to shine with a
Updated from l/ig/htn/o/velworld[.]com
“Fellow Daoist Fang,” she said, her words echoing out coldly from
behind her mask, “please give me some fighting tips!” Even as she
spoke, she performed an incantation gesture with her right hand, causing
a Blood Orchid to appear in front of her. As the flower swayed back and
forth, it began to grow rapidly. Rumbling sounds could be heard as, in
the blink of an eye, it grew to a size of thirty meters.
It had a thick trunk, blood-colored petals, and looked both extremely
imposing and visually stunning. At the same time, the flower twitched,
causing branches to shoot toward Meng Hao.
Meng Hao stepped forward, clenched his fist, and sent out a single punch.
As of this moment, everyone in the outside world was watching as the
punch caused a huge vortex to appear. Rumbling sounds spread out, causing
the air to vibrate, and everything else to shake violently.
The incoming Blood Orchid branches twisted and then completely collapsed.
However, in that moment, the Blood Orchid’s petals of the spread wide
as it bloomed. A drop of blood emerged that flew back to land on the
forehead of the young woman’s mask. Radiating an intense aura, the
young woman then flickered as she shot toward Meng Hao.
Meng Hao stood in place, neither retreating nor advancing. However, at
the same time, he punched a second time.
This second punch caused the air to ripple, and a massive force to
explode out and sweep across the young woman. Her body trembled, and she
was about to unleash a divine ability when an intense pressure crushed
down onto her cultivation base. In the blink of an eye, she completely
lost any ability to rotate her cultivation base, which left her not only
completely surprised, but also incapable of avoiding the punch that
slammed into her.
A boom could be heard. Beneath the mask, blood spurted from the young
woman’s mouth, and she staggered backward a full thirty meters, after
which she looked up at Meng Hao, panting.
“You’re no match for me,” Meng Hao said coolly.
The young woman was silent for a moment, after which she chuckled
bitterly and nodded.

“I concede,” she said, and then vanished. When she reappeared, she
was back on the first layer of leaves.
Meng Hao had won once again, but before the audiences outside could
comment, light began to glitter on the tree leaf again, and… another
It was a boy, none other than the same boy who had just defeated Taiyang
Zi. Junior Blood Immortal!
His appearance on the scene instantly sent the audience into tumult.
“Fang Mu is one of the people who has to fight twice!!”
“There were three extra people in the competition, so some people have
to fight more than once to get into the top 32. I never thought that Fang
Mu would be one of them!”
“This is going to be one intense battle! Fang Mu versus Junior Blood
Immortal! I wonder who will be strongest!?!?”
Junior Blood Immortal emerged slowly, and when he saw Meng Hao, his mouth
twisted into a vicious grin. Killing intent flickered in his eyes.
“So, we meet at last!” he said in a raspy voice, licking his lips. A
shocking red glow could be seen in his eyes as he stared at Meng Hao.
Meng Hao looked the boy over. He knew that he attacked with bizarre
ferocity, and had reduced all of his opponents to pools of putrid blood,
with the exception of Taiyang Zi.

Contrary to what one might expect, the boy had not made much of an
impression during the ten stages of the trial by fire. He had achieved
just enough to make it into the top 1,000. Clearly, he had been holding
back in virtually all aspects.
Meng Hao’s expression was calm, and he said nothing. He merely looked
indifferently at the boy.
When their gazes met, roaring sounds filled both of their minds as their
divine senses made contact with each other. The boy’s eyes filled with
surprise. He knew his opponent was powerful, and yet, still remained
fully confident in himself. Taking advantage of the rumbling caused by
the divine sense, he charged toward Meng Hao, raising his right hand to
perform an incantation gesture. Bloody light flickered up, and the in the
blink of an eye, a blood-colored bottle gourd appeared, rotating as it
sped through the air toward Meng Hao.
Meng Hao’s expression was the same as ever as he took a step forward.
In that instant, the entire arena match leaf began to quake, and a wind
began to swirl around Meng Hao.
“This divine ability of mine will cause all of the blood in your body
to boil and turn into a putrid sludge!” The Junior Blood Immortal’s
voice was now shrill as he called out. In the blink of an eye, the
blood-colored bottle gourd began to exert an incredible gravitational
force, as if it wanted to suck Meng Hao inside of it.
Meng Hao snorted coldly. He did not level any punches; this Junior Blood
Immortal had a bizarre cultivation base, and Meng Hao would not take him
lightly. The wind swirling around him quickly transformed into a violent
tempest that shot forward. At the same time, his body transformed into a
black vulture, which flapped its wings, charging through the
gravitational force to appear directly in front of the boy, where it
slashed out with claws vicious enough to shatter stone and metal.
