Library of Heaven's Path - chapter-1494
Seeing that the other party had agreed to it, Zhang Xuan stood up calmly
as he discreetly sent a telepathic message to the young lady behind him.
“Chen Leyao, you are an inner member of the Glacier Plain Court, so it’s
best for you not to follow me anymore. Also, after I leave, don’t linger
around in the Han Clan. Leave the city first and wait for my notice.”
Due to Chen Leyao’s identity, she would be put in a tough position if
something happened between him and the Glacier Plain Court afterward.
As for getting her to leave the city for the time being, that was on the
off chance that his identity was exposed. This way, she would be in a
much safer position.
“I understand.” Chen Leyao nodded.
After issuing those instructions, Zhang Xuan had the Netherworld Azure
Dragon Beast and the Inferno Qilin move back into the Myriad Anthive Nest
before following Elder Bai out of the Han Clan, heading straight toward
the Glacier Plain Court.
He had already fed the two saint beasts the medicinal herbs that the Han
Clan and Elder Bai had prepared, and using his Heaven’s Path zhenqi in
unison with the treatment, they were recovering fast. Nevertheless, it
seemed like they would still need two to three days before they were able
to make a full recovery.
I should avoid bringing them out unless when I’m truly cornered.
In the fight with the First Elder of the Zhang Clan, the two saint beasts
had already sustained considerable injuries. After which, they had
clashed with Zhan shi and the others, and the Inferno Qilin had even
suffered the might of the Formation of the Sages directly. If not for
their formidable physical resilience, they would have lost their lives by
While the Heaven’s Path zhenqi could heal all injuries, it was a pity
that his cultivation was only at Phantasmal Space realm pinnacle, so the
effectiveness of his zhenqi on the wounds of Saint 9-dan cultivators was
severely limited. Not to mention, the two saint beasts also possessed
hulking physiques, so even if he expended all of his zhenqi on them, he
still would not be able to nurse them back to full health.
meant that he should avoid bringing the two of them out unless the
situation was truly dire.
After flying for a moment, the two for them arrived before a huge cluster
of buildings. At this point, Elder Bai turned her gaze over and said,
“Yang shi, we have arrived at the Glacier Plain Court. It has limited
access to outsiders, so I’ll have to beg for your pardon in advance.”
“It’s fine.” Zhang Xuan waved his hand as he examined his surroundings
Most of the buildings ahead of him seemed to be made of a crystalline
material, and they emanated a faint, forlorn light beneath the starry
night sky. White snow drifted amid these crystal buildings, and there
were some beautiful ice sculptures that could be seen here and there. It
felt as if one had stepped into a world created of snow and ice.
“That’s a relief!” Hearing that the middle-aged man did not mind, Elder
Bai heaved a sigh of relief.
She walked over to the gates, where two disciples of the Glacier Plain
Court were stationed.
“Greetings, Elder Bai. May I know who the person beside you is?”
Recognizing Elder Bai, the two disciples quickly greeted her before
directing doubtful gazes at the unfamiliar face beside.
“He is Han Chu of the Han Clan. He’s here to deliver resources, and we
happen to have some important matters to discuss too,” Elder Bai replied.
“I see!” Hearing that the other party was from the Han Clan, the two
disciples swiftly opened up the pathway for the both of them to enter.
Zhang Xuan followed closely behind Elder Bai while advancing forward.
of serene silence drifted within the Glacier Plain Court. There were not
too many people around. After walking for some time, they finally arrived
at an independent residence.
“This is where I live. Given my current authorization, I’m afraid that I
can only bring Yang shi up to this point. Even I don’t have access to
places beyond here,” Elder Bai said as she pushed open the door and
“It’s fine.” Zhang Xuan nodded. “You just have to tell me where the
Chanting Serenity Hall is. As for the rest, I’ll deal with it myself.”
He had never intended to have Elder Bai lead him straight in. Firstly,
that would be putting the latter on the spot, and secondly, the more
people there were, the easier they would be spotted.
“The Chanting Serenity Hall is southwest from here, roughly ten li
away…” Elder Bai quickly explained the rough location and the
appearance of the building.
Carefully remembering everything that Elder Bai had said, he headed into
a room in the residence and set up a formation around him so as to
prevent any outsiders from getting in before drawing his Primordial
The Glacier Plain Court was filled with experts. With his current
strength, it was impossible for him to get to Zhao Ya discreetly without
alarming anyone, so he could only depend on his Primordial Spirit.
His Primordial Spirit was formless and intangible, which would allow him
to bypass most formations and sentries, thus giving him a better chance
of reaching the Chanting Serenity Hall safely.
However, his Primordial Spirit was still a little too big at the moment,
so he would have to be careful.
After leaving the formation that he had constructed, Zhang Xuan made sure
to stick close to the surface as he discreetly left the residence.
his deep understanding of formations and the utilization of his Eye of
Insight, he was able to bypass the surrounding formations without much
problem. He advanced roughly ten li before a tall building came into his
This should be the Chanting Serenity Hall!
The building before him fitted the description that Elder Bai had given
him, so it should be where Zhao Ya was imprisoned.
What a formidable formation!
Examining the building closely, Zhang Xuan swiftly realized that there
was an active formation shrouding the building, and if he just looked at
it in terms of prowess, it was only slightly beneath that of the Sanctum
of Sages’ Guardian Formation.
As formidable as it is, it has far more flaws than the Sanctum of Sages’
Guardian Formation. It won’t be difficult for me to slip past it…
In the eyes of others, the powerful formation cast over the Chanting
Serenity Hall might appear to be unbreachable, but in Zhang Xuan’s eyes,
it was riddled with loopholes. As powerful as it was, there were simply
too many ways he could use to circumvent it.
He began making his way toward the formation, preparing to slip in, but
just as he was about to make a move, he heard footsteps crunching on snow
from afar. He quickly dove into the pile of snow not too far away to hide
Just a moment after he was fully concealed, he immediately saw two
figures appearing before him.
They were both female, and from their backs, it was difficult to gauge
their age. Nevertheless, from their revealed skin, it was apparent that
that they were not too young.
Even though the two of them were not intentionally showcasing their
strength, Zhang Xuan could still feel imposing might harnessed within
their bodies. This was especially so for the lady standing on the left.
Her strength could not compete directly with the First Elder of the Zhang
Clan, but at the very least, she was around Zhang Wuchen’s level, which
meant that she was an expert who had surpassed Saint 9-dan.
Zhang Xuan’s eyebrows shot up. Could she be the First Elder of the
Glacier Plain Court?
He had intended to find Zhao Ya discreetly without anyone noticing, but
he had ended up meeting this fellow first.
If she truly was the First Elder, he would be in deep trouble if he was
noticed by her.
At the very least, he did not wield the power to oppose her yet.
“How is it? What did she say?”
While Zhang Xuan’s mind was still wandering, he suddenly heard the ‘First
Elder’ speaking in a hushed voice.
“She isn’t giving in yet!” the other figure replied.
The ‘First Elder’ harrumphed coldly. “Humph, she has no choice in this
matter. It is because I was too lenient the previous time around that her
mother managed to get away. It won’t happen again!”
if she doesn’t cave in, we can’t just continue keeping her imprisoned
like this either!” the other figure said.
“Don’t worry, I have my own ways. For the time being, we should first
lock her up for two days and make her suffer a bit!” The ‘First Elder’
waved her hand and said, “Right, doesn’t she have a teacher? It seems
like she does respect him quite a bit. Try to find a way to capture him
here and use him as a hostage to force her to comply!”
“Her teacher? You mean Zhang Xuan? But he’s the benefactor of our Glacier
“What about that? You also know how important this matter is. As long as
we succeed, the Glacier Plain Court will be able to be brought to a whole
new level. I won’t allow anyone to stand in the way at this point in
time!” The ‘First Elder’ flung her hand backward majestically.
Hidden in the snow, Zhang Xuan’s face darkened upon hearing those words.
They intend to capture me?
The fluctuations in Zhang Xuan’s emotions swiftly caught the ‘First
Elder’s’ attention. She immediately turned her head around and stared
intently at the pile of snow where Zhang Xuan was hiding in.
“Who is it?”
