The Immortal's Poison - chapter-149
Witchcraft traps had been laid everywhere in Painting Town. The
Enlightened San Wei had known that it would be difficult even for him to
head directly to the second floor to attack his enemies. Therefore, he
had chosen to stay on the first floor and continued to hammer his
disciples’ corpses into the ground.
Something had suddenly appeared out of thin air within Painting Town. Its
speed was so fast, even Wen Leyang’s telegnosis ability which was capable
of taking himself out of the situation could only sense that something
had flashed past him once. He could not even clearly see what it was.
The chimpanzee Leyang Tian finally let out a long breath. His gaze which
was trained towards the first floor was filled with hysterical
excitement. His huge hands grabbed onto the handrail strenuously, he
appeared to be wild and insane as he burst out laughing, “It’s here, it’s
here, it’s here!” There was the sound of a loud bang as Leyang Tian’s red
snake vital fire appeared and coiled around his body. It raised its head
and hissed at the first floor as if it was confronting a formidable enemy.
The toads on the ground had reduced in number one by one; each toad
seemed to be there one moment before disappearing in the blink of an eye
in the next moment.
Occasionally, the hissing sound of a snake could be heard. It cut through
the air like a sharp razor blade which slashed past bitterly before
flickering once and disappearing…
When the Little Supreme Leader Liu Zheng had used his heaven and earth
telepathy earlier, he had exerted the cultivation base of his entire body
in an attempt to destroy one of the corpses within the corpse formation.
He had gathered so much strength from his body, so much so that a chunk
of iron ore would be pulverized. However, the corpse had unexpectedly not
even budged an inch. Instead, he had been severely injured. He does not
know how many bones in his body had been broken.
Wen Leyang did not waste any time. His back was slightly arched like a
leopard which was ready to strike as he aimed himself at a corpse. At a
corner of the room, his body had compressed itself in preparation to
launch the fatal strike at any time! Suddenly, Leyang Tian glowered at
them as he shouted sternly, “Stop moving, do you want to die? My
witchcraft spell is complete. It’s best if you can behave yourself and
stay put!” Upon saying that, his gaze shifted and he glared at the
Enlightened San Wei, “Are you done with your spell formation already?”
The Enlightened San Wei appeared to be unaffected by the unusual scene in
his surroundings and Leyang Tian’s shouting. After he had shielded the
corpses against the Thunder Heart Sand, he had then concentrated all his
effort in pounding his disciples’ corpses like a sculptor who was fully
concentrated on completing the most important work in his life. The sound
of slapping was heavy and compact as if every slap was delivered straight
into everyone’s heart!
After Leyang Tian had finished crafting his witchcraft spell, his
temperament turned ruthless and he roared loudly, “Reveal yourself, Ning
Jiao the Cunning Flood Dragon!” Soon after that, he burst into hysterical
laughter once again!”
The red-colored vital fire abruptly turned into a scorching hot flame
with a sharp raging howl. In a short while, the flaming glow had wrapped
around Leyang Tian’s entire person. At the same time on the first floor,
Wen Leyang could feel the vision before his eyes turn dark as a
black-colored python the thickness of a pail appeared before his eyes
with a huge toad still dangling from its mouth! It seemed as if it felt
slightly unaccustomed to revealing itself in front of humans; the moment
it appeared it had immediately coiled itself around. Its humongous head
was raised high as it looked at its surrounding in a ruthless manner.
This content is taken from _light_novelworld.com Only then did Wen Leyang
figure out that those huge toads had been used to feed the snake.
Nevertheless, he peeked at the Little Supreme Leader Liu Zheng next to
him in a puzzled manner.
Liu Zheng understood that Wen Leyang was inexperienced so he explained to
him strenuously, “This is not a python, it’s a dragon! It’s the child of
Kun Peng the legendary bird and a Divine Dragon… Ning Jiao is estimated
to be… a type of flood dragon, I guess?”
A streak of fire appeared gracefully out of the burning vital fire which
then rapidly approached Ning Jiao’s body. Ning Jiao’s expression was
oddly satisfied as it rubbed continuously against the flames intimately.
Wen Leyang had never read any of the ancient records before but he had
heard stories in the past. He knows that the Ning Jiao belonged to the
dragon genus with a ruthless and violent temperament and that it lived in
water. He took a closer look at the Ning Jiao before his eyes, no matter
how he looked it still looked like a python. Only its skin seemed
slightly out-of-the-ordinary as if it had just slithered back from the
equator recently. He asked in hesitation, “Is that it?”
Liu Zheng laughed forcefully, soon after that, his laughter triggered his
wounds and his face convulsed with agonizing pain, “Those are all
legends, no one has ever seen it before!” Upon saying that he meditated
for a while before adding softly, “No matter what, we must capture the
Enlightened San Wei alive!”
Wen Leyang was startled, “Capture him alive? San Wei? A person who can
even defend against the Thunder Heart Sand can be captured alive by me?”
Leyang Tian’s hysterical laughter had continued ceaselessly, it made one
feel confused and uneasy.
Liu Zheng took out a few medicinal pills strenuously which he then
stuffed into his mouth. He chewed loudly and it almost sounded like he
was chewing peanuts instead, “Nine Taoist priests with a steadfast Taoism
ideology had sacrificed their lives for a magic spell by transforming
their bodies into corpse nails. Once the nine Eyang Sect disciples had
died, the demon priest San Wei’s formation had already started to take
Wen Leyang was astonished, “Take form? Then why he is still nailing the
corpses one by one… What is the purpose of nailing the corpses? Do you
know about this conjuration formation?”
Liu Zheng pulled a bottle of green tea out from his side and took a gulp
from it, swallowing the pills in his mouth into his stomach, “The
formation has already taken form but each time the nine corpse nails are
nailed further into the ground, the power of the formation grows by a
portion. As for this formation here, I’ve never seen it before though I
can roughly guess its origin!”
This content is taken from _light_novelworld.com As Wen Leyang and Liu
Zheng were talking to each other softly, the line of fire which had been
rubbing against the Ning Jiao intimately suddenly lifted and pointed at
the Taoist priest San Wei!
Ning Jiao’s yellow-colored eyes turned ferocious immediately as it leaped
up from the ground. Not only was the Ning Jiao unaffected by the muddy
swamp witchcraft spell’s limitation, it was even more swift and agile as
if it had inherently lived in this kind of situation! The skin which was
wrapped around its body suddenly rippled and stripped away in layers
before stretching out into a pair of black-colored wings with a pop! The
python’s body underneath the beneath the wings suddenly transformed into
a dazzling and shimmering silver color!
The Little Supreme Leader Liu Zheng was just about to explain the
formation of the nine ‘corpse nails’ when he saw the black and white
body coloration of the Ning Jiao. He immediately seemed to recall
something from his memory and sat up straight all of a sudden, forgetting
all about the agonizing pain in his body. He made a muffled growl in
astonishment, “Black wings and a white body, it’s the spirit of the
The Ning Jiao spread out its wings as it pounced towards the enemy under
the guidance of the fiery line. Wen Leyang felt his heart somersault once
as he felt a strong energy erupting from the Ning Jiao. This force was
surprisingly very similar to the Poison of Life and Death’s power within
his body. He had never heard of such a monster in the past at all nor
could he actually see the entanglement and surging of the Poison of Life
and death within Ning Jiao’s body, but it was a familiar sensation. Just
like a woodcutter who was watching another person chopping wood, or the
chef who was watching another person cook, and the thief who was watching
another person steal!
Everything flickered by in a flash, the Ning Jiao bit San Wei’s shoulder
as it firmly coiled its serpentine body around the Taoist priest. The
Taoist priest San Wei could not resist even for a moment; he opened his
mouth and spat out blood continuously as a muffled cracking sounded from
his body. It sounded like the bones of his entire body were slowly being
crushed by the tremendous force.
The Taoist priest San Wei had been capable of resisting being hit by the
Thunder Heart Sand but under the Ning Jiao’s entanglement, it looks like
he would soon meet his death!
Perhaps Leyang Tian was overconfident about the Ning Jiao he had
summoned, he did not seem to be affected by how everything seems to
happen too easily. The laughter within his vital fire only grew louder!
The Enlightened San Wei opened and closed his mouth strenuously as if he
was muttering an incantation. However, his voice was overwhelmed by
Leyang Tian’s hysterical laughter!
Wen Leyang stared vigilantly at the Ning Jiao which was leisurely killing
the Enlightened San Wei, he directed the topic of conversation softly and
pointed at the nine corpses which were scattered on the first floor,
“What’s this formation here?”
Liu Zheng’s expression showed that he was genuinely worried about San
Wei. Under Ning Jiao’s merciless attack, the Taoist priest San Wei looked
like he could be snapped into two at any time.

Upon hearing Wen Leyang’s question, Liu Zheng explained in an extremely
fast pace, “The nine Heaven’s Cone Nails on the Black and White Island
had received the power of all living things in the Universe. They used
the vital energy of the Heaven and Earth to suppress the nine-headed
Xiang Liu! The demon Taoist priest San Wei is using the corpse nails as
cone nails. Once these have been nailed into this nine land of evil
spirits here, it will be the exact opposite of the Black and White
Island’s demon-suppressing great formation. It will receive the ghost
power from the Netherworld! Even though this power is much more inferior,
the approach is correct. The demon priest’s formation is just the reverse
of the Black and White Island’s Demon-Suppressing Nine Cone Nails Great
Wen Leyang frowned and his train of thought was a little messy, “Does
this Taoist priest San Wei know about the conjuration formation of the
Black and White Island…” Before he could finish his sentence he was
suddenly enlightened, “How could he have learned about the conjuration
formation of the Black and White Island? Had he come from the Black and
Liu Zheng squinted, his tone of speaking too turned solemn and dignified,
“Other than my three respected teachers and I, there is only one other
person who would know about the Black and White Island’s conjuration
Wen Leyang’s brain was booming as he pointed at San Wei, “So are you
saying that he… He is Xiang Liu’s evil soul?”
Wen Leyang had just finished his sentence when his expression stiffened
abruptly. A muttered incantation which was so soft it could not be heard
was now gradually turning louder and less constrained. The Taoist priest
San Wei continued to chant as if he would die at any moment and persisted
with his last breath. His eyes were shut tightly as his mouth opened and
closed repeatedly, “A life in the world, there is always thousands and
millions of ghosts…”
Leyang Tian’s laughter suddenly stopped and changed to a bitter whistle.
Under Leyang Tian’s urging, the Ning Jiao constricted its body even more.
At the same time, the black-colored long garment on San Wei’s body glowed
with an ink-colored radiance. There was a squeaking sound as he resisted
the Ning Jiao’s tremendous force!
The Little Supreme Leader Liu Zheng pushed Wen Leyang aside vigorously as
he urged with a nervous voice, “Destroy the corpses first then figure out
a way to deal with the Ning Jiao. If San Wei is indeed Xiang Liu’s evil
soul, then he cannot be allowed to die!”
Wen Leyang was more concerned about that fate of Xiang Liu’s evil soul
than Liu Zheng. Once the evil soul was killed, Zhui Zi, who shared the
same life as it would also certainly die. The Black and White Island’s
Demon-Suppressing Great Formation would then lose its hope for reform and
Xiang Liu the nine-headed monster would struggle free from its shackles
eventually. By then, Grand Master Tuo Xie’s efforts for the past two
thousand years would be wasted. Chang Li, who was as beautiful as magic,
would be struck by divine punishment and her soul would be shattered and
Wen Leyang ground his teeth as he looked up and yelled loudly at Leyang
Tian, “This demon Taoist priest is the evil soul of Xiang Liu, don’t kill
him!” Soon after that, the Poison of Life and Death within Wen Leyang’s
body surged and he used the Faulty Punch to dissolve the muddy swamp
witchcraft spell. He then dashed rapidly and pounced towards the
‘corpse nail’ which was closest to himself!
Leyang Tian was the descendant of Painting Town so of course he had known
about the relationship between Xiang Liu’s evil soul and Zhui Zi.
Naturally, he would not kill Xiang Liu’s evil soul but Leyang Tian was so
engrossed in his witchcraft spell at this moment that he paid no
attention to Wen Leyang’s shout. One could see his savage and ruthless
expression indistinctively through the fire’s glow as he continued to
whistle, urging the Ning Jiao to boost its effort in killing the Taoist
priest San Wei!
This content is taken from _light_novelworld.com Just as the Poison of
Life and Death started to circulate within Wen Leyang. The Ning Jiao
which was in the middle of its killing attack against San Wei suddenly
released its bite on the Taoist priest’s shoulder. Its head which was
bigger than a washbowl raised up high and its yellow-colored eyes
glimmered with bitter radiance. It looked as if it had suddenly
discovered a new prey which was exceedingly tempting as its yellow gaze
pinned itself on Wen Leyang abruptly!
Soon after that, the snake’s body which was as thick as a pail shook once
and with the sound of a ‘pop’, the Taoist priest’s body was tossed aside.
Its wings trembled once before it suddenly appeared in front of Wen
Wen Leyang was almost petrified to death. He hastily pinned himself onto
the ground like a nail and did not dare to move at all.
The Ning Jiao’s gaze was icy-cold and lifeless. There was not an ounce of
emotion in its eyes as it slowly lowered its huge head on a swaying neck
and stared straight into Wen Leyang’s eyes. No matter which direction was
the beast’s head was pointed at, its gaze was firmly pinned to Wen
No one had expected this to happen, Leyang Tian scolded in rage out of
exasperation, “What the hell are you doing!”
Wen Leyang stood up in front of the Ning Jiao and dared not move at all
as he asked softly, “I was just about to ask you the same thing!”
After Leyang Tian had scolded Wen Leyang, he then continued to whistle
but the Ning Jiao took no notice. Before its eyes, nothing else was as
important as Wen Leyang who possesses the Poison of Life and Death.
The Enlightened San Wei’s body had been constricted by the Ning Jiao into
a ghastly twisted and mangled mess. Nevertheless, his chanting had not
halted for even a moment. The initial soundless voice has turned into a
soft muttering before its volume grew to a loud, unconstrained voice.
Finally, the incantation turned into the booming sounds of Heaven. Every
word which was chanted by the Taoist priest was amplified as if he had
utilized all the strength of his entire body from the blood vessels,
tendons, bones, skin, and flesh, “Head for the divine is far, head for
the ghost is near. The vast wondering soul, now… Edict!”
With a popping sound, every ray of light was extinguished within the
final incantation and the growl was accompanied by fresh blood!
From a bird’s eye view, the magnificent and beautiful city which was
ablaze with lights just a moment ago suddenly turned pitch black, as if
it had vanished into thin air.
This content is taken from _light_novelworld.com Everyone could not help
but become silent for a moment. In the hushed silence, a crow’s caw
suddenly echoed and sounded like the brave sound of a charging horn!
Soon after that, a series of loud trumpeting, accompanied by a gloomy
trace of the Netherland, echoed sonorously from the depth of one’s heart.
There was the sound of horses neighing and humans growling as well as the
sound of thunderous footsteps which repeatedly stabbed into everyone’s
heart. Even someone who did not know about magic arts could understand
that there was a huge army with a thundering, murderous intent who was
galloping towards them from beneath the ground!
The Taoist priest San Wei burst out laughing as he stretched his twisted
arm to point at Leyang Tian, “Your Art of Witchcraft, those soldiers were
fake, those admirals were fake, and those war horses were fake too! My
magic art has invited the real evil soldiers and admirals of the
Before his voice had died away, the entire Painting Town shook once
vigorously as if another burst of tremendous force was about to break
through the soil!
Wen Leyang could not care less about the event which was taking place
before his eyes. How could he care about those evil souls and corpse
nails when the Ning Jiao is staring at him? He took a step back and the
Ning Jiao followed his movement like a soundless shadow. The distance
between its huge head and Wen Leyang’s head never exceeded half a foot.
If Wen Leyang were to smoke a cigarette, it would be easy for him to burn
the Ning Jiao’s nose.
Leyang Tian was both nervous and angry; Painting Town’s location was
naturally remarkable as this was once the estuary of an old river. The
river had converged into the sea for millennia. The waters would flow and
surge as it advanced and retreated. During the flood season, the great
river converged into the sea. During the drought season, the seawater
flowed back and the two sides would fight for a long period of time. The
rage which was ingrained into the vast water, not only was it beneficial
in casting witchcraft spells, it was also capable of luring in the
monsters which favored water such that the sorcerer could disperse at his
pleasure. This was Leyang Tian’s most important support. If he leaves
Painting Town, his Art of Witchcraft’s spells would suffer a great
reduction in power. He might not have been able to even deal with the
nine Eyang Sect disciple’s formations, much less the Enlightened San Wei.
The Netherland’s tide surged underground as the murderous sound of men
and horses echoed louder and louder. Finally, with a loud booming noise,
a huge hole the diameter of a dozen meters opened up beneath Painting
Town! Leyang Tian yelled and he no longer cared about the Ning Jiao. His
plump body directly somersaulted downstairs as his red-colored vital fire
burned vigorously. All the unique skills of the witchcraft spells within
Painting Town was being launched at once!
Wen Leyang, who was still face-to-face with the Ning Jiao right now,
