I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-870
“Spend the next day in rest and recovery,” said Ling Yunzi. “After
that, the top 16 will be selected!” Meng Hao and the others among the
top 32 were now getting ever closer to the top of the main trunk of the
ancient Dao Tree. Currently, they began to rest and prepare for the
battles to get into the top 16.
By now, the battles to select the top 32 had already begun for the
Nascent Soul and Spirit Severing stages. From Meng Hao’s position up
above, he could finally see Chen Fan down in the Nascent Soul arena
Although Chen Fan was currently fighting against a Nascent Soul
cultivator like himself, the level of difficulty to get into the top 32
Nevertheless, he was still enduring. His sword strikes had gained an
additional sharpness which, combined with his gloomy demeanor, caused
shock to fill the heart of his opponent.
Chen Fan had long since drawn the notice of quite a few sects. His sword
contained a Domain, even though he himself was only in the Nascent Soul
stage. Someone like that was certain to make stunning accomplishments in
One of the Three Churches and Six Sects, the Solitary Sword Pavilion,
which was somewhat related to the Solitary Sword Sect, was especially
interested in Chen Fan. They were actually the first to take note of him.
The day passed by quickly, and in the end, Chen Fan made it into the top
As for Meng Hao, he began to fight for his spot in the top 16!
As the battle began, glittering light spread out, and they moved closer
to the top of the tree. Meng Hao’s opponent was another Chosen!
It was the young woman from the Five Colors Sect, who wore robes that
were a mixture of five colors. Meng Hao had been paying attention to her
in previous battles, and knew that she had astonishing skill in five

This young woman was much more cautious than Meng Hao; once she saw who
her opponent was, her heart began to thump. Of the handful of people she
truly feared in the arena matches, Meng Hao was one of them.
After she and Meng Hao clasped hands to each other, the young woman took
the initiative, performing a double-handed incantation, immediately
unleashing metal, wood, water, fire and earth, all five elements. They
materialized into a massive sea, a huge battleship, a blazing sun, and an
enormous clay golem that wielded a golden greatsword, all of which shot
toward Meng Hao.
Meng Hao’s eyes gleamed with the light of anticipation. Body
flickering, he waved his hand, causing a Violet Sea to descend, which was
his water totem. Then the Golden Crow appeared, his metal totem. After
that were his wood, fire, and earth totems. Shockingly, five elements
fought against five elements.
The clash caused wild colors to flash about, and rumbling to fill the
air. The audiences in the outside world were looking on with rapt
In the arena, Meng Hao and the young woman fought back and forth in
midair. Metal, wood, water, fire, and earth, the five elements, were
unleashed amidst rumbling booms. In a short time, they had exchanged
several dozen attacks, but throughout it all Meng Hao never went all out.
Rather, he merely relied on the five elements as the avenue of attack
while facing off against the woman.
He was using this fight to strengthen his five elements magic.
Considering that the young woman was even more skilled than Meng Hao in
the use of the five elements, this match gave those watching it the
feeling that it was two disciples from the Five Colors Sect who were
In fact, the disciples from that very sect were somewhat confused, and
watched in shock as the battle unfolded.
“Fang Mu actually excels in five elements magic as well!!”
“This is unbelievable! Although many people can use five elements magic
to some degree, no one can compare to the Five Colors Sect. And yet, Fang
Mu is actually evenly matched with Han Mei!”
There were sixteen arenas with thirty-two people fighting in them; no one
had secured victory as of yet. It was at this point that a black wind
rose up within the Ruins of Immortality. Not even the enormous corpse
beneath the ancient Dao Tree could do anything to prevent its arrival. It
swept out, appearing directly above the huge tree. Inside of the black
wind, a pair of white eyes could be seen, which stared down at the crowds
of people fighting down below.

The instant the black wind appeared, the faces of Ling Yunzi and the
other two old men flickered. It wasn’t just them; the crowds out in the
Ninth Mountain and Sea were also shocked.
Most nervous of all were the Patriarchs in the starry sky palace. They
all rose to their feet, even the old men from the Three Great Daoist
Societies, their eyes widening in response to the sudden appearance of
the black wind.
“The ancient Dao Tree was personally planted by the Paragons, and
contains a bit of the Paragons’ will,” said the Patriarch from the
Ninth Sea God World. “They will be safe as long as they stay on the
By now, all of the fighters on the Dao Tree had seen the Black Wind, and
their faces flickered. Ling Yunzi and the other two old men took deep
breaths, and then Ling Yunzi’s voice rang out.
“You must not leave the leaves of the tree! As long as you remain on
the leaves you will be in no danger!”
Almost in the same instant that Ling Yunzi’s words could be heard, a
scream rang out from off in the distance, a sound so piercing it seemed
capable of shredding iron or rock. It echoed about, and to the people on
the tree it merely gave them a twinge of pain in their ears, inflicting
not even a minor hindrance to them. However, Ling Yunzi and the other two
old men coughed up blood and, faces falling, quickly retreated as close
as possible to the tree.
In that same moment, an enormous eyeball began to descend from up above.
It was thoroughly bloodshot, and as it neared, the veins of blood within
the eye began to extend themselves and whip around. Suddenly, a shrill
voice echoed out.
“Who! Who plucked out my right eye!?!?
“My right eye! Get back here, come back….”
As the sound echoed about, the crowds on the Dao Tree coughed up blood.
Thankfully, a bright glow spread out from the Dao Tree, ensuring that
there were no deaths, only injuries.

The black wind and the eye merely milled about outside the Dao Tree,
apparently in dread of it. However, after a moment, the black wind seemed
to lose patience. A shrill shriek could be heard as an enormous,
decomposing roc flew out from inside. It was shockingly large, and as it
flew out, its sharp talons slashed out toward the Dao Tree.
Before it could get very close, brilliant light spread out from the Dao
Tree, causing the roc to let out a miserable shriek and fall back.
However, it did not leave. Instead, it continued to loiter outside of the
Dao Tree, its eyes radiating an intense aura of death and savagery.
Considering that was all that happened, Meng Hao, although shocked,
didn’t pay very close attention to the matter. However, just when he
was about to resume fighting with the young woman, another figure
approached from off in the distance.
It was a man with half a head, his body surrounded by swirling black
mist. He held a banner in his hand, and a sword had been plunged into his
side. The grievous wound that had taken off half of his head did not
appear to have been inflicted while alive, but rather as if some creature
had bitten it off after he was already dead. Instead, the fatal blow that
killed him was apparently delivered by the sword that was still stuck
into his side.
He approached slowly, his one remaining eye sweeping over the crowds
until it finally came to rest on Meng Hao. Then, he began to head
directly toward him.
When Ling Yunzi and the others saw the man, their faces fell. Meng
Hao’s eyes flickered.
It was at this moment that the young woman from the Five Colors Sect
suddenly performed an incantation gesture and attacked. Her five elements
magic caused five-colored light to blaze up, transforming into a
five-colored sealing mark that rotated rapidly as it shot through the air
toward Meng Hao.
Meng Hao frowned. He was no longer interested in fighting, so he punched
out with his right hand, simultaneously causing his Dharma Idol to
appear. Intense energy surged out, and a boom could be heard as the
five-colored sealing mark shattered. The young woman’s face fell, and
blood spurted from her mouth.
It was in this moment that the half-headed man waved his right hand,
causing the banner in his hand to unfurl. A black mist appeared, which
transformed into a huge vortex. At the same time, he pointed toward Meng
“Come… come… come….” His voice was archaic, as if it had
originated in ancient times. As the voice echoed out, an enormous
gravitational force exploded out and enveloped the tree leaf Meng Hao was
on. Meng Hao’s face flickered, and he immediately dropped to the
surface of the leaf. However, the face of the young woman from the Five
Colors Sect fell as she was involuntarily swept up into the air. In the
blink of an eye, she appeared to be on the verge of… flying completely
away from the leaf.

Everyone looked on as it happened, but none of them were able to do
anything to come to her aid. Ling Yunzi and the others stared with wide
eyes, but could do nothing to help.
The crowds watching in the Ninth Mountain and Sea observed the scene with
wide eyes, and many gasps could be heard.
In the starry sky palace, the Matriarch from the Five Colors Sect watched
with an expression of unprecedented anxiety. The young woman
participating in the arena matches was not a Chosen of the sect, but one
of her direct bloodline descendants.
“Save me!” the girl cried in shrill alarm. She was now flying through
the air toward the edge of the leaf, and was just about to be sucked
outside. She could see the terrifying roc inside the black wind nearby,
opening its decomposing mouth. She could also see the eyeball, with the
countless veins stretching out from it.
Meng Hao’s eyes glittered, and he suddenly extended his hand toward the
girl and made a grabbing motion. The Star Plucking Magic was unleashed as
he grabbed onto her and began to pull her back. However, the suction
force was too strong, and all Meng Hao could do was slow her down a bit.
“Hurry up and concede!” he growled.
The young woman suddenly seemed to come to her senses, and urgently cried
out, “I concede!!”
As soon as the two words left her mouth, and just as she was about to be
sucked outside, glittering light surrounded her and she vanished. When
she reappeared, she was back down on the first layer of leaves, badly
shaken and her face ashen. She looked up toward Meng Hao with an
expression of deep gratitude.
Meng Hao heaved a sigh of relief, then sat down cross-legged, looking out
coldly at the half-headed man outside of the Dao Tree.
Everyone else who had been watching also sighed in relief. Ling Yunzi
looked over at Meng Hao with even more admiration than before. Even he
hadn’t thought of using the words ‘I concede’ to get out of danger.

Everyone out in the Ninth Mountain and Sea was completely surprised by
everything that had happened. They were especially shocked by how quickly
Meng Hao had reacted. To them, it was evidence of incredible quick
thinking and resourcefulness.
“That’s right! All she had to do was concede, and then she was
teleported out. It took a moment, but that was definitely the simplest
method. How come I didn’t think of that!?”
“This Fang Mu is extremely quick-witted to come up with a plan like
that in such a situation!”
Up in the palace in the sky, the Matriarch from the Five Colors Sect took
a deep breath and then glanced at Meng Hao on the vortex screen. Her
expression was one of gratitude; she was not the type of person who liked
to owe favors to others, so this was a kindness she would be sure to
repay in the future.
“The arena matches will now continue,” said Ling Yunzi from his
position beneath the Dao Tree. “All of you must remember to never step
foot outside of the arena. If any situation arises similar to what has
just occurred, it would be much better to concede than to die.” Ling
Yunzi sighed. Although he was aware of why the Three Great Daoist
Societies had chosen this place to hold the arena matches, the dangers of
the area made it such that those in the Spirit Realm really should not be
