Library of Heaven's Path - chapter-1496
Shaking his head, Zhang Xuan flew over and glanced at the book Zhao Ya
was staring at.
To his surprise, it was actually his handwritten manual.
That was the cultivation technique that he had prepared for her while
they were still in the Tianxuan Kingdom in order to resolve the
afflictions that she was suffering from as a result of her unique
constitution. To the current her, this book was of no use anymore.
Nevertheless, the book was still in pristine condition. There was not the
slightest hint of a crumple on its pages. Clearly, it had been stored and
treated with the utmost care.
Back then, when he gave this manual to her, he had requested that she
destroy it after she had memorized the content, but who would have
thought that she would have kept it to this day!
As the saying went, ‘a young lady metamorphoses at eighteen’.
Over the past half a year, the young lady had grown taller, and her
disposition had become more refined and graceful. The awakening for her
Pure Yin Body had also made her much more beautiful than before.
In terms of looks, the only person whom Zhang Xuan knew that could
triumph over her was Luo Ruoxin.
It seems like the Glacier Plain Court had indeed treated her fairly well
in the past half a year, or else there was no way that she would have
been able to awaken her unique constitution to such an extent.
Zhang Xuan proceeded on to assess the young lady with his keen eyes.
But a moment later, a deep frown emerged between his brows.
Even though the young lady was not physically bound, her cultivation
seemed to have been restricted by some kind of power. The current her was
no different from an ordinary mortal, possessing not the slightest hint
“Teacher, are you… still doing fine?”
While Zhang Xuan was trying to figure out what was going on with her, he
suddenly heard the young lady’s voice once more.
Shaking his head, Zhang Xuan replied, “I’m doing perfectly fine!”
“Who is it?” Hearing a response to her words, Zhao Ya was alarmed. She
quickly leaped to her feet and crossed her arms before her chest, taking
up a defensive posture.
“Who else can it be other than me?” Zhang Xuan replied as he gradually
revealed his figure.
After being tempered by lightning, his Primordial Spirit had grown so
consolidated that he could materialize it if he wanted to let his
presence be known. The only issue with it was that he was more than
twenty meters tall, reminiscent of a giant.
“Teacher…” Seeing the familiar face and aura of the young man before
her, Zhao Ya’s eyes reddened in agitation.
Day after day, the young man had never left her mind. There were
countless words that she had bottled up in her mind, vowing to say to the
young man when they were finally reunited. Yet, when the moment came, she
found her mind going completely blank, rendering her incapable of
constructing her sentences.
“Un, it’s me. Tell me, what’s going on over here.” Knowing that this was
not the time to be catching up on times, Zhang Xuan asked grimly, “Aren’t
you the young court chief of the Glacier Plain Court? Why would you be
He first had to make sense of what was going on before he could concoct a
plan to save her.
“Teacher… is it really you? Wait… d-did you hear what I just said
then?” Instead of answering Zhang Xuan’s question, Zhao Ya’s face
reddened in embarrassment.
“What?” Zhang Xuan asked.
“It’s… it’s nothing!” Zhao Ya swiftly waved her hand as she sneaked a
peek at her teacher’s face. Seeing that the other party did not take the
matter to heart, she heaved a sigh of relief.
Falling to her knees, she kowtowed deeply and said, “I know that it’s
unfilial to place you in such grave danger, but I really am unable to
think of another way to resolve this problem. So, I could only ask of you
to save me!”
“Since I’m here, I’ll definitely help you. Tell me, what’s going on?”
Zhang Xuan asked.
The reason he was willing to go to the extent of offending the Zhang Clan
and the Sanctum of Sages was to save her, but still, he would first have
to understand the situation before making his move.
“I… accidentally discovered a secret of the Glacier Plain Court.” Zhao
Ya bit on her lips tightly. “My mother is actually the previous court
chief of the Glacier Plain Court!”
“Your mother?” Zhang Xuan was taken aback by the abrupt revelation.
How did Zhao Ya’s mother come into the picture?
Zhao Ya was the daughter of the City Lord Zhao Feng of Baiyu City, and
she had a butler called Yao Han—Zhang Xuan knew that. But thinking
about it, it did seem like he had never heard anything about Zhao Ya’s
To think that her mother would actually be the court chief of the Glacier
Plain Court, a power on par with Tier-1 Sage Clans! How did the court
chief of the Glacier Plain Court end up getting together with a minor
city lord in somewhere as remote as the Tianxuan Kingdom and even have a
“In the Glacier Plain Court, every single generation of court chief must
possess the Pure Yin Body, and my mother happens to have it!” Looking at
her teacher, Zhao Ya revealed everything that she knew without any
“Back then, due to some incident, my mother departed from the Glacier
Plain court and sealed her own cultivation, fleeing to an ancient ground
where no master teacher exists, Tianxuan Kingdom. It was there that she
met my father, and the both of them happened to have many common
interests. Love eventually blossomed from their relationship, and they
married one another.
“However, while giving birth to me, she failed to rein in her power
properly, resulting in a leak in her powers. The Glacier Plain Court
swiftly found her, and in order to prevent any harm from coming to me and
my father, she willingly surrendered and returned with them.”
“You said that your mother was brought back to the Glacier Plain Court?”
Zhang Xuan frowned.
“Yes. Just like me, she’s imprisoned somewhere in the Glacier Plain Court
as well. To this day, I have been unable to find her!” Zhao Ya clenched
her fists in indignation.
From a very young age, her father had shared many stories about her
mother with her, and the bits and pieces of those stories formed an image
of a loving and doting mother in her mind. The very idea that her mother
was suffering in the Glacier Plain Court left her feeling distressed, but
despite her efforts, she had been unable to locate her whereabouts.
“Is it because of that that you were captured here?” Zhang Xuan frowned.
Even if the previous court chief was Zhao Ya’s mother, that should not
have been a reason to imprison Zhao Ya as well.
After all, the Glacier Plain Court was banking on the rise of a court
chief to bring them to greater heights. It had not been easy for them to
find a person with the Pure Yin Body, so surely, they would not be so
foolish as to sever their own hopes!
“That’s not it. The reason I was captured is because I found out about
the final step to awakening the Pure Yin Body!” As Zhao Ya spoke, her
face turned livid, and her clenched fists began trembling by her sides.
“What is it?” Zhang Xuan asked, slightly bewildered by Zhao Ya’s response.
Considering how Zhao Ya would eventually have to fully awaken the Pure
Yin Body before taking over as the court chief, there should not have
been any reason for the First Elder and the others to imprison her just
because she had found out about it prematurely.
“The Pure Yin Body is a manifestation of the purest yin in the world
within the body of a female,” Zhao Ya said. “Even across the entire
Master Teacher Continent, it’s rarely seen. As of this moment, the only
ones who possess such a constitution are most likely my mother and me.
Once fully awakened, the Pure Yin Body will allow one’s cultivation to
surge straight up. Regardless of whether it’s battle techniques or
cultivation techniques, one will be able to grasp them swiftly with
“However, there’s always an equalizing power in the world. The world will
never allow an individual power to grow beyond a certain point, similar
to the saying, ‘A lonesome yin never grows; an individual yang never
“The yin and yang in this world don’t exist as separate entities. They
are complementary powers, born and destroyed in pairs. Despite the
opposing nature of the two forces, they are necessary for the existence
of the other…”
Recalling what she had read, Zhao Ya trembled slightly. “So, the final
step to awakening the Pure Yin Body is the amalgamation of yin and yang
to reconcile the two together!”
“Amalgamation of yin and yang?”
“Un. Other than female disciples practicing yin attribute cultivation
techniques, there are also a small handful of male disciples practicing
yang cultivation technique,” Zhao Ya replied. “In order to achieve the
full awakening of the Pure Yin Body, I’ll have to regard them as mere
cauldrons and harvest the yang energy in their bodies!”
“Regarding humans as cauldrons? The Glacier Plain Court actually has such
vicious practices?” Zhang Xuan was astonished.
Regarding a human as a cauldron meant treating them as a tool to harvest
energy. Once the victims had been sapped dry, they would wither and pass
away. This was exactly the kind of practice that the Master Teacher
Pavilion headquarters abhorred and forbade. In fact, the reason the soul
oracles had been vanquished back then was due to their malevolent arts
that allowed for the possession of other cultivators and the forging of
cultivators as Soulless Metal Humanoids!
To think that the Glacier Plain Court’s final step to awakening the Pure
Yin Body would actually be something like that.
It was really too frightening!
“Indeed. I rejected that course of action, and as a result of that, the
First Elder ordered for my imprisonment, hoping to force me to change my
mind through this!” Zhao Ya aid.
