Library of Heaven's Path - chapter-1499
First Elder was looking at a jade token in her palm. There was another
elder who was sitting quietly by her side, seemingly patiently waiting
for the First Elder to be done.
Placing down the jade token, the First Elder turned her gaze toward the
elder sitting beside her.
The elder also turned his gaze over and said, “You should understand now,
“Yes, I do!” The First Elder nodded grimly.
“Good. The reason I was sent here was to explain this matter to you in
detail. It should be obvious even without me saying it, but nothing can
go wrong this time around. This matter concerns the survival of mankind,
so no mistakes will be tolerated. Otherwise, not just your Glacier Plain
Court, none of us will be able to bear the consequences!” The elder stood
up and placed his hands behind his back.
With a slightly uneasy expression on his face, he gazed upward and said,
“Success or failure, everything banks on this. I don’t wish to see
everything falling apart due to the inability of your Glacier Plain
“Don’t worry, I have already locked her up in the Chanting Serenity Hall
and planted the Heaven Sealing Lock in her body. Most likely, we should
be able to make her give in within three days. As long as she awakens her
unique constitution, the plan should be able to move on without any
problems!” The First Elder stood up and clasped her fist.
“That would best be the case!” The elder nodded. “Alright, I’ll be taking
my leave now. I hope to hear good news from you!”
The elder turned around and headed to the door. However, barely after
taking two steps, a soft voice suddenly sounded from the doorway. It was
not too loud, but it seemed to dive right into one’s eardrums, making it
impossible not to hear what was being said.
“Master Teacher Yang Xuan seeks an audience with the First Elder of the
Glacier Plain Court!”
“Yang Xuan?” The First Elder narrowed her eyes in astonishment.
Not too far away, the elder also halted his footsteps upon hearing that
voice from astonishment. With a voice carrying a hint of disbelief, he
muttered, “Why would Grand Elder Yang appear here?”
“Elder Qu, this…” The First Elder hurriedly looked at the elder before
her with a look of apprehension.
“Grand Elder Yang has always roamed the lands freely, such that even our
deputy pavilion master is unaware of his whereabouts. I’m also not too
sure why he would suddenly appear here either. Hurry up and invite him
in!” Elder Qu urged.
“Alright!” Knowing the other party’s standing in the Master Teacher
Continent, the First Elder dared not keep him waiting. She quickly walked
over to the doorway to the conference room and clasped her fist. “First
Elder of the Glacier Plain court, You Ruoxin, pays respect to Yang shi!”
A moment after those words were spoken, a figure slowly descended from
the sky. The speed of his flight was not too fast, but his movements
exquisitely avoided all of the dangers from the defensive formations cast
around the area. It was as if his eyes could see all imminent dangers,
allowing him to avoid them in advance.
You Ruoxin anxiously lowered her head subserviently.
As the person-in-charge of the Glacier Plain Court, she knew full well
how formidable the formation that was set up around the conference room
was. Yet, it seemed as if it was nothing more than child’s play to the
other party. He could simply walk straight through it without sounding
any warning alarms, making it impossible to guard against him. Without a
doubt, the man before her had reached a level far beyond her imagination.
The figure in the sky landed gently on the ground.
The First Elder You Ruoxin carefully raised her head to assess the person
standing before her. He had slightly yellowish skin, and his outward
appearance was similar to that of a person in his late thirties or early
forties. He had exceptionally deep eyes that seemed to conceal all of his
emotions and thoughts. It was impossible to gauge the extent of his
strength just from the aura he emanated, and even when she attempted to
weigh him up through discreetly extending her Spiritual Perception to
him, she shockingly found that she could not even perceive his presence
Despite so, You Ruoxin narrowed her eyes and asked, “You aren’t Yang
shi… Who in the world are you?”
She had never met Yang Xuan in person before, but she had heard some
rumors about him and his appearance. From what she knew, Yang Xuan should
have been in his fifties with a flowing white beard, and that was
completely at odds with the person standing before her.
“I take on many identities as I roam around the world. Do I have to
inform you of every single one of them in advance?” ‘Yang shi’s’ face
darkened as a powerful aura burst forth from his body.
In this moment, it felt as if the entire conference room would collapse
under the pressure of his aura.
“I dare not!” You Ruoxin hurriedly lowered her head fearfully.
She quickly turned her gaze toward Elder Qu, only to see the latter
slowly walking toward her.
“Grand Elder Yang does assume many different identities as he roams the
world, but when he pays a visit to another in his capacity as a master
teacher, he would appear with his real face. You aren’t Yang shi, who in
the world are you? Do you know the crime of impersonating a grand elder
of the Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters?” Elder Qu uttered sharply as
he looked straight at ‘Yang shi’.
You Ruoxin might not have met Yang Xuan before, but he had!
But the middle-aged man before him, be it in terms of appearance or aura,
was completely different from the Yang shi whom he knew, so how could
they be the same person?
If they were really the same person, he would relinquish his eyes!
“Hmm?” Hearing the words spoken by Elder Qu, ‘Yang shi’s’ heart skipped a
The person before him was dressed in a master teacher robe, and pinned on
his chest was a master teacher emblem with nine stars glistening on it.
The word ‘headquarters’ could be seen at the bottom of his emblem,
indicating his identity as a member of the Master Teacher Pavilion
Why would there be a 9-star master teacher from the Master Teacher
Pavilion headquarters in the Glacier Plain Court?
Of course, this ‘Yang shi’ was still Zhang Xuan. After moving Zhao Ya
into the Myriad Anthive Nest, he quickly asked Elder Bai for the First
Elder’s location, and without bothering to hide his tracks, he had flown
He had thought that with the unique properties of his Heaven’s Path
zhenqi and his deep experience in disguising, he would be able to scare
the First Elder right from the get go and convince her that he was Yang
Xuan. Who could have thought that there would actually be a master
teacher from the Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters around?
Just what kind of bad luck was this?
He had barely started his act, but the tables had already turned against
Coming from the Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters, the person before
him was bound to have met the real Yang Xuan before. How was he supposed
to continue acting?
While Zhang Xuan’s heart was beating in trepidation, he did not allow his
emotions to show on his face. With a slight flick of his finger, he sent
a surge of sword qi right toward Elder Qu.
This surge of sword qi was infused with the essence of the Speed Sword
Quintessence. As if slicing right through the fabrics of time, as soon as
it escaped the tip of Zhang Xuan’s finger, it immediately appeared right
before the other party’s face,
Not expecting the imposter to make a move on him right after having his
identity exposed, Elder Qu’s face darkened. With a swift flick of his
hand, a light barrier appeared on the surface of his skin.
Elder Qu thought that the sword qi would collide with his light barrier,
but contrary to his expectation, it dissipated upon contact with the
light barrier, as if it had never been there in the first place.
The sword qi carried no offensive power at all—the other party was
Everything had happened so quickly that he had failed to tell that it was
just a mere test.
Narrowing his eyes, Elder Qu was about to berate the other party when the
fake Yang Xuan before him suddenly frowned. Gazing down on him coldly,
the other party sent a telepathic message to him. “Qu Buping, have you
resolved the problem of meridian distortion in your Streaming River Art,
or have you recovered from the trauma you sustained in the battle against
Emperor Baiyu? Otherwise, what gives you the guts to doubt my identity?”
The words that Elder Qu was just about to speak fell back down his
throat, and he froze on the spot.
The Streaming River Art was a cultivation technique that he had created.
It allowed a cultivator to drive their zhenqi forth relentlessly, as if a
flowing river, granting them immense might. Unfortunately, it had a fatal
flaw. The Streaming River Art placed great strain on one’s meridians, and
if one used it for too long, it could cause one’s meridians to become
This was similar to how if a river current was too strong, it would cause
its meanders to distort out of shape.
The cultivation and physical condition of 9-star master teachers were
top-notch secrets, and they would never reveal a word about the
cultivation problems they were facing to others. Otherwise, should the
Otherworldly Demons catch wind of it, it could potentially pose a
security threat. Yet, the middle-aged man before him actually knew of his
past afflictions and even the trauma that he had sustained in his fight
against Emperor Baiyu.
If that was the case, could he really be Yang shi?
But what about his completely different disposition and appearance then?
This did not make sense!
While Elder Qu was still trying to make sense of the situation, someone
“I have recently made a breakthrough in my cultivation, which resulted in
my appearance and disposition being vastly different from what it used to
be. I don’t blame you for failing to recognize me!”
