measures, so she did not station too many sentries in the vicinity of the
Chanting Serenity Hall—or perhaps, she was afraid that planting
sentries in the area would give it away. As such, there were only a
couple of normal disciples patrolling the area.
With his exceptionally large Spiritual Perception, Zhang Xuan was able to
detect the presence of the few sentries stationed in the area and avoid
them in advance.
Without taking too long, they arrived at Elder Bai’s residence very soon.
“Is teacher’s physical body in here?”
Entering the residence, Zhao Ya scanned her surroundings curiously.
Following which, she heard one of the doors creak open, and a middle-aged
man with yellowish skin walked out.
“Grandteacher!” Astonished, Zhao Ya quickly bowed deeply to pay her
The other party was none other than her teacher’s teacher, Yang Xuan!
“Un!” ‘Yang shi’ nodded.
“Grandteacher, why… are you here? Where’s teacher?” Zhao Ya asked in
She had clearly seen her teacher’s Primordial Spirit entering the room,
but why would it be her grandteacher walking out instead?
your message, your teacher came to request for my help,” ‘Yang shi’
explained with a wave of his hand. “Don’t worry, your teacher is in a
folded space that I have created, so he’ll be fine. He’s still a little
too weak at the moment, so he won’t be able to deal with the current
“Thank you, grandteacher!” Seeing that her even her grandteacher had
chosen to make a move, Zhao Ya heaved a sigh of relief.
What she was the most afraid of was something happening to her teacher
while he was trying to save her. With her grandteacher’s strength, they
should be safe now.
After becoming the young court chief of the Glacier Plain Court, she had
swiftly learned about the true identity of her grandteacher. He was one
of the three grand elders of the Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters, as
well as one of the strongest experts on the Master Teacher Continent.
Even the First Elder would have to bow down to him if she was there.
“Zhang Xuan has already told me about your situation. Follow me, I want
to take a look at the Heaven Sealing Lock on you,” Yang shi said with a
wave of his hand.
“Yes!” Zhao Ya hurriedly nodded before entering a room.
The two of them sat down, and ‘Yang shi’ placed a finger on Zhao Ya’s
As time passed, the frown on her forehead grew deeper and deeper.
Naturally, this ‘Yang shi’ was none other than Zhang Xuan. The reason he
had chosen to conceal his true identity from Zhao Ya was out of fear that
she would panic after learning the truth.
Given Zhao Ya’s current standing, she likely knew of the true identity of
her ‘grandteacher’ already. If she learned that her teacher was actually
her grandteacher as well, her state of mind could be rattled. This could
become an unstable variable that would potentially expose him when he
made use of Yang shi’s identity as a chip against the Glacier Plain Court
Even if he wanted to tell the truth to Zhao Ya, it should only be done
after they had escaped from the Glacier Plain Court. Otherwise, the
slightest mistake on their part could lead to their descent into the
After all, the man whom he was attempting to impersonate was one of the
strongest experts in the world, Yang Xuan! He could not afford to make a
In order to use the Library of Heaven’s Path through touch, he would have
to knock Zhao Ya out first. However, from the looks of it, even if he did
so, he would likely get the same results as before. If he truly wanted to
find the flaws of the Heaven Sealing Lock and resolve it, he would have
to slice apart the Zhao Ya’s flesh and touch the lock directly!
Zhang Xuan retracted his hand and asked, “How did the Heaven Sealing Lock
get into your body?”
Zhao Ya pondered for a moment before speaking. “The Heaven Sealing Lock
is slightly different from the one created by the Blacksmith Guild. It’s
forged out of the threads produced by the Icy Silkworm. After the elders
subdued me, the First Elder had the Icy Silkworm bite my finger and dive
into my body. Before I knew it, I was already in my current condition.”
After suppressing her, the elders had sealed her powers entirely,
rendering her completely helpless. Thus, she could only helplessly watch
as the Icy Silkworm crawled its way into her body.
“Icy Silkworm?” A deep frown appeared on Zhang Xuan’s glabella. He
contemplated for a moment, but he was still unable to fully make sense of
the situation, so he said, “Let’s try this then. I’ll send a surge of
zhenqi through your body, and if I am able to locate the Icy Silkworm,
I’ll try to eliminate it.”
He had never heard of the Icy Silkworm in his life before, so he could
not say for sure what would work. In any case, he had to give it a try.
“Alright!” Knowing that her grandteacher would not hurt her, Zhao Ya
extended her wrist out once more.
With a flick of his finger, Zhang Xuan sent a surge of zhenqi into her
the meridian that had entered her body, Zhao Ya could not help but raise
her eyebrows in astonishment.
The quality of the zhenqi that had just entered her body was extremely
familiar to her. It was almost identical to that her teacher’s, the only
differences being that it was even purer, more soothing, and stronger.
Well, Teacher did come from grandteacher’s lineage, so it shouldn’t be
surprising that the nature of their zhenqi is similar to one another…
Zhao Ya rationalized with a nod of her head.
Those of the same lineage would likely possess similar constitutions, and
if they practiced the same cultivation techniques, the nature of their
zhenqi would also be similar.
Soon, after driving his zhenqi through Zhao Ya’s body once, Zhang Xuan’s
face turned even more grim.
The Heaven Sealing Lock created by the Icy Silkworm had turned all of
Zhao Ya’s meridians and even her dantian into ice! If she attempted to
drive her zhenqi, she would be putting herself at risk of shattering her
meridians, and the injuries that she would sustain as a result of that
could very well claim her life!
Even though he had only sent in a small surge of zhenqi in, and he had
made sure to move extremely carefully, he still nearly caused her
meridians to rupture. If he attempted to remove the Heaven Sealing Lock
forcefully, chances were that Zhao Ya would lose her life before the
problem could be resolved.
What a vicious tool… Zhang Xuan could not help but curse the First
Elder with all of the expletives that he could think of in his mind.
Who would have thought that the person in charge of a major power would
actually use such ruthless means on her fellow people? This was
Suppressing his raging fury, Zhang Xuan asked, “Has the First Elder ever
said how the Heaven Sealing Lock can be resolved?”
means, there was nothing he could do to resolve the Heaven Sealing Lock.
Even with the Heaven’s Path zhenqi, there was nothing he could do.
If the Icy Silkworm had still been alive, he could have tried to poison
it to death. However, based on what he had found, it had already fused
into her meridians and was shrouded with thick ice. If he attempted to
break the ice to get to it, that could potentially cause Zhao Ya’s
already fragile meridians to collapse entirely.
In other words, he was completely helpless.
“I don’t think so. All she said was that she would help me resolve the
problem once I took the final step to awaken my Pure Yin Body,” Zhao Ya
said with a shake of her head.
After pondering for a moment, Zhang Xuan was still unable find a feasible
solution. Shaking his head, he said, “It seems like we’ll have to ask her
in person then!”
The longer the Heaven Sealing Lock remained in Zhao Ya’s body, the
greater the damage it would cause to her body. They would have to get rid
of it as soon as possible.
From the current looks of it, the only one who wielded the ability to
resolve Zhao Ya’s condition was the First Elder. So, the most direct and
effective solution would be to question her and have her reveal the cure
to her condition.
After what had happened to Zhao Ya’s mother, the First Elder must have
hardened her heart to take such extreme means. It would not be easy to
get her to reveal the cure.
There’s no way she will reveal it if I ask her and Zhang Xuan; if things
go badly, we might even come to blows. However, it will be different if I
confront her as Yang Xuan! Zhang Xuan thought with narrowed eyes.
assuming the identity of Yang Xuan from the Master Teacher Pavilion
headquarters. Even if the other party was the First Elder of the Glacier
Plain Court, she would still have to show some respect!
“Zhao Ya, you should wait in my folded space for the time being. I’ll be
heading over to meet the First Elder of your Glacier Plain Court!” Zhang
Xuan stood up with a fling of his sleeves.
Since he was there to save Zhao Ya, naturally, he would have to resolve
her affliction too before taking her away. Since he could not think of
any other solution, he could only take a gamble.
If he pulled it off, he might just be able to fool the First Elder and
obtain the solution to Zhao Ya’s problem.
But if he was discovered… Well, he had no qualms with reducing the
Glacier Plain Court to ruins!
