Library of Heaven's Path - chapter-1497
Putting together what he had just heard with the conversation between the
First Elder and Zhao Ya, Zhang Xuan came to a realization.
Such an art of harvesting would mean treating living humans as mere tools
to further one’s cultivation, and it would lead to the deaths of many
For someone as prideful and righteous as Zhao Ya, there was no way she
could accept such a course of action.
“My mother was also reluctant back then, which was why she eventually
chose to seal her cultivation and flee from the Glacier Plain Court,”
Zhao Ya said.
Zhang Xuan nodded in response.
As one of the strongest powers in the Master Teacher Continent, the
Glacier Plain Court was bound to possess some means to track down their
disciples, not to mention that Zhao Ya’s mother possessed the Pure Yin
Body. Once she exerted her strength, the Glacier Plain Court would be
able to swiftly pick it up and find her. The only way she would be able
to really get away was to seal her own cultivation!
This was similar to how Luo Ruoxin had to seal her own cultivation in
order to get away from the Luo Clan.
However, due to the dire situation that he had been in back at the Qiu Wu
Palace, she had chosen to release her seal so as to subdue the Skyleaf
King and save him. This had led to the Luo Clan finding her whereabouts,
and she had been left with no choice but to leave his side.
And shortly after, he had met with Luo Chengxin in the Qingyuan Empire.
a practice is abhorrent. Don’t worry, if you are reluctant to do it, no
one will be able to force you into it. I’ll bring you away right now!”
Zhang Xuan waved his hand with unquestionable dominance.
So what if this is the Glacier Plain Court?
If my student is reluctant to learn your damned arts, no one will be able
to force her into it!
Not even the heavens will be able to make her to do something against her
“Teacher…” Feeling the deep concern that her teacher had for her, Zhao
Ya’s eyes reddened.
Her teacher had been several million li away, but as soon as he received
her message, he had immediately rushed over and appeared before her
within less than two hours. Such actions spoke much louder than any words
“Alright, let’s leave the folded space first before deciding on the next
course of action!” Zhang Xuan said.
He reached out to grab Zhao Ya, intending to pull her up and take her
away, but contrary to his expectations, he found his Primordial Spirit
being dragged down to the ground instead.
“What’s going on?”
Considering how Zhao Ya did not possess any cultivation at the moment, he
should have been able to lift her up easily with just a finger. But for
some reason, no matter how he tugged and pulled, the young lady remained
firmly rooted to the spot, as if she was one with the room.
“Teacher, my zhenqi has been sealed by the Heaven Sealing Lock,” Zhao Ya
uttered weakly as her face abruptly paled and her breathing hastened.
As if some kind of excruciating pain was assaulting her, her body
collapsed weakly to the ground and scrunched up together.
“Your zhenqi has been sealed by the Heaven Sealing Lock?” Zhang Xuan
narrowed his eyes in utter horror, and in that instant, he nearly
exploded from rage. “You are telling that the First Elder fused the
Heaven Sealing Lock with your body in order to seal your meridians?”
He had already heard from Elder Bai previously that it was very likely
that the First Elder had used the Heaven Sealing Lock on Zhao Ya, but
when he saw that there was nothing binding her body, he had heaved a sigh
of relief. He had thought that the First Elder was unwilling to go to
that extent in view of their relationship, but who would have thought
that the latter would be worse than he thought? That wretched hag
actually fused the Heaven Sealing Lock into Zhao Ya’s body!
The Heaven Sealing Lock was a torture tool that even Saint 9-dan experts
were apprehensive of. It could inflict great pain on a cultivator just by
using it to bind their limbs, but to go to the extent of fusing it into
the body to seal the meridians… the slightest mistake could have led to
the utter destruction of her meridians. Her cultivation would have been
completely destroyed, turning her into a cripple!
“Yes, that’s right,” Zhao Ya replied feebly.
Her body twitched uncontrollably on the ground, and her breathing was
growing weaker and weaker. It seemed as if the excruciating pain was
going to rob her of her consciousness very soon.
“Damn it! I’ll take that seal off you right now!” With an awful look on
his face, Zhang Xuan hurriedly rushed forward to touch Zhao Ya’s body,
intending to use the Library of Heaven’s Path in order to uncover the
flaws of the Heaven Sealing Lock.
However, when there was no jolt in his head, he realized that he was
currently only in his soul form!
While he could collect books into the Library of Heaven’s Path through
his Primordial Spirit’s gaze, due to his incorporeal form, he was unable
to truly touch an object, so he was unable to compile a book to analyze
Zhao Ya’s current condition.
stand up and execute a battle technique!
However, given her current circumstances, that was off the table.
As infuriated as Zhang Xuan was, he knew that rage would be of no use to
him at the moment. He quickly released his grip and instructed, “Don’t
try to drive your zhenqi, and if possible, don’t exert any strength
derived from your cultivation at all!”
Nodding slightly, Zhao Ya quickly halted her flow of energy. Five minutes
later, the pain finally receded. By then, her clothes were already soaked
with her own sweat.
“I’m fine…” Zhao Ya struggled to her feet weakly.
“The Heaven Seal Lock is fused into your body, sealing your meridians.
Not only will you be unable to use your strength, there mustn’t be
another external force acting on you either, or else it will immediately
trigger the punishment, plunging you into excruciating pain!” Zhang Xuan
The First Elder sure was callous.
To disallow her from exerting any energy and preventing anyone from
saving her… this was really a dead end. Until the Heaven Seal Lock was
removed, there would be nothing he could do.
Knowing that the thing he had to do first was to remove the Heaven Seal
Lock, Zhang Xuan said, “Try to execute a punching routine for me!”
“Yes!” Zhao Ya nodded as she executed a light punch.
much strength in that punch, it still left cold sweat pouring down from
her head, and her face turned pale from exhaustion.
Fortunately, the effort was not wasted. A book materialized in Zhang
He quickly flipped it open.
“Zhao Ya, the young court chief of the Glacier Plain Court… Flaws: 1,
the Pure Yin Body has only been awakened to the seventh level. 2, her
meridians have been sealed by the Heaven Sealing Lock, preventing her
from exerting any strength. 3…”
After browsing through the content of the book, Zhang Xuan’s face turned
The book did mention the Heaven Sealing Lock, but it only depicted Zhao
Ya’s current condition, not the flaws of the lock.
In other words, the book compiled on Zhao Ya only showed him the flaws
regarding her cultivation. Even though the Heaven Sealing Lock was
mentioned, it was more of a passing remark, containing no useful
information as to how it could be removed at all.
It seemed like even the Library of Heaven’s Path did not possess the
ability to fathom something beyond direct contact with him!
Unless I’m able to find the exact location of the Heaven Sealing Lock in
her body and come into contact with it or… get the First Elder to
remove it personally, I won’t be able to do anything about it! Zhang Xuan
thought as his complexion turned more and more awful.
did was no different from planting a bomb in Zhao Ya’s body. She was the
only one who could resolve it, and if anyone else touched it, it would
immediately blow up!
“Teacher…” Zhao Ya turned her gaze over.
“Don’t worry. Since I’ve said that I’ll save you, I’ll definitely do it.
Follow me,” Zhang Xuan said before heading forward, and Zhao Ya quickly
As long as she did not utilize the strength derived from her cultivation,
she would not come under the punishment of the Heaven Sealing Lock. In
other words, while she did not possess any cultivation at the moment, she
was at least able to walk around like an ordinary mortal.
Soon, they arrived at the entrance, where the First Elder had left from.
Zhang Xuan gazed at the formation before him and lightly muttered,
A book materialized in the Library of Heaven’s Path.
While it was difficult to find the folded space from the outside, finding
a way out from the inside was much easier.
After swiftly browsing through the book, Zhang Xuan found a flaw in the
formation and focused his soul energy on that single point.
A crack swiftly appeared in the previously stable space, and it swiftly
grew larger and larger before forming a huge crevice.
soon, so we need to leave quickly!” Zhang Xuan instructed before leaving
the folded space.
Zhao Ya also quickly followed him.
As soon as the two of them walked out of the folded space, they saw the
spatial crevice behind them swiftly closing up and vanishing without a
Seeing that they were finally out of the Chanting Serenity Hall, Zhang
Xuan scanned his surroundings, and seeing that no one was around, he
heaved a sigh of relief.
“We’ll be heading toward Elder Bai’s residence…” Zhang Xuan sent a
telepathic message over.
