I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-899
“That thing?” said Fang Xi, staring with wide eyes at the meat jelly.
The meat jelly suddenly stopped talking and looked at Fang Xi. Both of
them seemed to be somewhat at a loss at first, but soon, bright glows
appeared in both of their eyes.
“Killing intent!” gasped Meng Hao, backing up as he sensed the aura
building between the meat jelly and Fang Xi.
“So, finally a worthy opponent!” said the meat jelly, leaping up into
the air and landing next to Fang Xi, an expression of unprecedented
solemnity on its face.
“It seems I’ve met my match!” replied Fang Xi, having sensed the
energy within the meat jelly. It was an explosive energy that only he
could sense, and from it, he knew that the meat jelly could continue a
conversation for days on end.
“It seems I need to warm up a bit first,” said the meat jelly,
clearing its throat. “Ahem. Look kid, Lord Third is going to tell you a
story that took place three three three three three… well anyway,
countless three years ago. This was back in the early days of Heaven and
“Cut the crap! All you know is three? Three three three three three.
What a disgrace!” Fang Xi hadn’t even begun speaking when all of a
sudden, the parrot flew out from Meng Hao’s bag of holding. It landed
on a nearby tree branch and looked at Fang Xi with a look of disdain.
“Kid, don’t listen to his jabbering,” said the parrot. “You study
with Lord Fifth. Look at my mouth, is it sharp or not? From that, you
should be able to imagine how sharp-tongued I am!”
Meng Hao quickly left the courtyard and fled into the Immortal’s cave
itself. In his opinion, the battlefield occupied by the meat jelly, the
parrot and Fang Xi, was a place he shouldn’t remain in. He had already
experienced some of Fang Xi’s gift of the tongue on the way here. He
had talked the entire way, telling stories from the day he was one year
old all the way to the present, and tales from the founding of the Fang
Clan all the way to modern times. When he had run out of conversation
topics, he had then begun to introduce the different members of the Fang
Clan to Meng Hao.
Of course, it wasn’t an introduction made in person, just his own
Inside his residence, Meng Hao looked around and saw extreme luxury. Even
the furniture was made of spirit stones, which caused his eyes to grow

“The Fang Clan… is really rich! And I’m the eldest grandson! Yet…
I’m so poor….” Sighing at the injustice of it all, he waved his
hands, causing all of the spirit stone furniture to be sucked into his
bag of holding.
The once luxurious residence was now simple and stark, and as he looked
around, he felt much better. Finally, he sat down cross-legged on the
ground, his eyes glittering.
“Father wanted me to get my Nirvana Fruits. It goes without saying that
reason is because he wants me to rise to prominence in the Fang Clan….
“It won’t be incredibly difficult to do that, but as for the Nirvana
Fruits… the Fang Clan… will they actually be able to give them to
me?” Frowning, Meng Hao considered the ambush he had experienced on the
way here, and how they had tried to kill him, and his eyes glowed with
“I wonder if Fang Wei’s branch of the clan sent the assassins….”
Meng Hao had learned of how the clan’s direct bloodline was currently
in a very poor situation. On the other hand, Fang Wei’s branch of the
clan was on the rise. Not only did they have the support of many of the
clan Elders, but they had even occupied some of the ancestral mansion.
Some branches of the clan remained neutral, but for the most part, Fang
Wei’s branch had completely eclipsed the direct bloodline.
“The Grand Elder was acting strange,” Meng Hao thought. “He seemed
kind, but in my opinion, it was just an act.” He smiled coldly. Other
people all assumed that he had been taken care of by his father and
mother from the time he was young. They believed that, although his life
had not been what it might have been had he stayed in the Fang Clan,
surely he had not experienced the twists and turns of a dangerous life.
The truth of the matter was that from the age of seven onward, Meng Hao
had been completely alone. In the mortal world, he had struggled hard
during his youth, and had developed a spirit of independence. Then he had
entered the cultivation world, and had experienced many things, and had
survived numerous deadly crises. Step by step, he had advanced through
life to reach his current situation. The help he had received from his
parents had been scant, to say the least.
Although he might not be a perfect judge of character, he rarely made
mistakes when sizing people up. He had quite a bit of experience in
contending with others, and naturally, had become quite good at it.
“In two days, they will most likely not give me the Nirvana Fruits.
They’ll come up with some excuse that I won’t be able to dispute, and
then delay the matter….
“Of course, me returning to the clan has probably caused a huge
headache for whoever it was that was trying to have me killed. However…
the higher my position within the Fang Clan, the more afraid they will be
to do anything to me.”

After some more thought, his eyes flickered, and he opened the bag of
holding that contained his cultivation resources from the Fang Clan.
After looking it over, he couldn’t help but take a deep breath.
There were a hundred bottles of medicinal pills, 1,000,000 spirit stones,
and one hundred magic manuals. Although there were no Daoist magics,
there were many powerful divine abilities. As for the Fang Clan’s most
powerful Daoist magics, of course there were none.
That was something else Meng Hao had learned from Fang Xi. Not even Fang
Wei could have access to those core Daoist magics, not without performing
deeds of merit. Such deeds were considered contributions to the Fang Clan.
The more deeds of merit one performed, the more rewards could be acquired.
It was a rule that applied to all of the Fang Clan; not even the Grand
Elder could violate it.
“I get one thousand merit points every month based on my status in the
clan alone. Unfortunately, that’s simply not enough to enable me to get
some of those core Daoist magics.” Meng Hao’s eyes gleamed as he
pulled out a jade slip which listed the names and properties of countless
medicinal pills, Daoist magics, and other magical items.
All of these things were items that could be purchased with merit points.
There were many that caused Meng Hao’s heart to thump after seeing them.
“There are many ways to earn merit points. The most common way is to
complete some of the various trials by fire that are publicly announced
throughout the clan. Different trials by fire can earn you different
amounts of merit points.”
At the same time that Meng Hao was studying the jade slip, Fang Wei’s
father and grandfather were seated cross-legged in a temple in the
eastern section of the ancestral mansion.

Fang Wei’s father was named Fang Xiushan. Frowning, he looked at his
own father and said, “Dad, I can’t believe that brat has
“It doesn’t matter,” the old man replied coolly. “I’ve already
taken care of the matter.” A sinister gleam appeared in his eyes. “If
he had returned and kept a low profile, it wouldn’t have mattered. But
since he has decided to act so high and mighty, he’s already placed
himself half a step into the Yellow Springs.
“Make sure Wei’er focuses on his cultivation. He’s a Chosen of the
Fang Clan, and the Patriarch of our bloodline has high hopes for him.
Don’t let him get distracted.”
“Dad, there’s no need for you to worry about that. Wei’er has true
willpower. He won’t be rattled by that son of a bitch.” Fang Xiushan
“The direct bloodline is rapidly declining,” said the old man
confidently, his eyes flickering as if with fire. “Fang Hehai has been
missing for years, and although his life force flame has not been
extinguished, if he were capable of returning, he would have long since
done so. 2
“His son Fang Xiufeng agreed to guard Planet South Heaven for 100,000
years for his crippled son. All of that has doomed the direct bloodline
“It has also ensured that our bloodline will once again become the next
lords of the Fang Clan, and the new direct bloodline!
“Years ago, Fang Hehai suppressed me, and his son Fang Xiufeng
suppressed you. In this generation, our Wei’er will definitely rise to
prominence. That insignificant Fang Hao will be nothing more than a mere
stepping stone to him.” The old man flicked his sleeve.
Time passed. For two days, Meng Hao did not leave his residence. He sat
there meditating, doing breathing exercises to absorb Immortal qi. Those
two days were like an entire month spent on Planet South Heaven. Being
able to practice cultivation like this was of great benefit to Meng Hao.
He pulled out the heart of his second true self and began to nourish it
with the Immortal qi near his villa.

It was about noontime when Meng Hao opened his eyes from his trance to
slap his bag of holding and produce a jade slip that was glowing
brightly. He quickly scanned it with divine sense.
“Hao’er, come to the main temple.” It was the voice of the Grand
Elder, and in response, Meng Hao smiled coldly. He put the jade slip away
and walked out of the residence. The first thing he saw in the courtyard
was Fang Xi. He had dark circles under his eyes, and his aura was
The meat jelly and the parrot were currently taking turns bombing him
indiscriminately with various arguments.
As soon as Fang Xi saw Meng Hao, he hurried to his feet and looked over
at Meng Hao with an expression of both madness and veneration.
“Coz, you’re incredible,” he called out. “Having these two
following you day in and day out, and living to tell the tale, it must be
so hard. Coz, don’t worry. I’ll definitely learn the ways of a sharp
tongue!” Fang Xi gritted his teeth with resolve.
A strange expression could be seen on Meng Hao’s face, and he cleared
his throat, unsure of exactly what to say. Then he saw the determination
in Fang Xi’s eyes, and he patted his shoulder and left the courtyard.
“Speech is endowed by Heaven, but requires tempering,” he thought.
“If he can endure the training provided by the meat jelly and the
parrot, then he will eventually gain the long-windedness of the meat
jelly, and the acidic speech of the parrot.” Clearing his throat again,
he hurried toward the main temple.
The ancestral mansion was huge, and flight was prohibited there. It took
Meng Hao two full hours to stroll all the way to the temple. When he got
there, he could see tens of thousands of clan members, as well as the
Grand Elder, filling the area, seated cross-legged.
As soon as he saw Meng Hao, the Grand Elder’s face broke out in a kind
smile, and he nodded his head.
“Hao’er, your Immortal’s cave is some distance away. How about
this, I’ll give you a command medallion that gives you special
privileges in the ancestral mansion. Other than some specially restricted
areas, you will now be able to fly wherever you wish.” With a smile, he
handed Meng Hao a violet jade slip. When the onlookers saw this
happening, they gaped in shock and jealousy.

Normally speaking, only Elders were permitted to fly inside the ancestral
mansion. Of the members of the Junior generation, only Fang Wei had the
honor of being able to do so. Now, Meng Hao did too.
Meng Hao accepted the jade slip. If he didn’t trust his own judgement,
then it would seem for all intents and purposes that the Grand Elder
really did like him a lot. Considering his position as Grand Elder, it
appeared as if what he was doing was not only a true kindness, but at the
same time, just and even-handed. He was doing his best to follow the
“Today, many clan members have gathered to bear witness to an important
event!” the Grand Elder proclaimed.
“Years ago, Hao’er became weak with illness. His Seventh Year
Tribulation caused many clan members to worry greatly about him. As for
me, when I saw a young lad like him enduring such incredible suffering,
it also pained my heart.
“Thankfully, the Immortals are blessing the Fang Clan, and an Outsider
came, providing us with a way to deal with the problem. Fang Xiufeng and
his wife took the child away, leaving the Nirvana Fruits behind with the
Meng Hao stood in front of the Grand Elder, staring in shock. From the
way the old man was speaking, and the expression on his face, it didn’t
seem at all like he was going to delay the matter; rather, it looked like
he was really going to hand the Nirvana Fruits over.
“Don’t tell me I was overthinking things…?” thought Meng Hao.
1. Fang Xiushan’s name in Chinese is 方秀山 fāng xiù shān. Xiu
means ‘elegant’ or ‘handsome.’ Shan means ‘mountain.’ It’s
very similar to Fang Xiufeng’s name. The Xiu in both names is the same,
which makes sense since they are of the same generation. The final
character in Fang Xiushan means ‘mountain’ whereas the final
character in Fang Xiufeng’s name means ‘(mountain) peak’ or
‘summit.’ The final character in Fang Xiufeng’s name actually has
the ‘mountain’ component as part of the character. Look at the two
names side by side and you will see what I mean. In the final character
of Fang Xiufeng’s name, you can see the mountain squished on the left
side of the character. Fang Xiushan 方秀山. Fang Xiufeng 方秀峰
2. Fang Hehai’s name in Chinese is 方贺海 fāng hè hǎi – He
means “congratulate.” Hai means “sea”
