The Immortal's Poison - chapter-161
Not long ago, Eyang Sect, one of the Five Blessings, tried to stand up
for Sun Dynasty Palace. They sent the enlightened sword-bearer Taoist
priest Qing Niao to Wen family village. He reached just in time to meet
Wen Leyang, who had just tunneled through the belly of Mount Emei,
bringing the seven fat Rainbow Brothers, jade knife Guo Huan and Wei Mo
home. As a result, Taoist priest Qing Niao returned in defeat. This
prompted the Five Blessings to gather on the Nine Peaks Mountain,
wrestling for treasured weapons. Zi Que died. Almost all the elites of
the right path worked together to capture the demon monk San Duan. The
disciples of Tuo Xie then found out from the demon monk about the
whereabouts of the Qilian Immortals’ giant pangolin, which led to Wen
Leyang’s venture into the Gold-Consuming Lair and Shanghai.
This series of event all happened for one reason. It was all because the
Jilong Sect obtained a piece of information, which was there was an
important person hidden amongst the Wen Bucao, the important personage
who was significant to the destiny of the right and evil path of the
This message was passed on to the Wen family by the supreme leader Huang
He on behalf of supreme leader Zi Que after his death. Due to the Thunder
Heart Sand, old demon rabbit Bu Le, Wen Leyang, Rainbow Brothers, and
others made enlightened person Zi Que thought, before his death, that the
Wen Bucao was not a normal strong mortal clan like they appear to be. To
eliminate the deep grudge between the Wen Bucao and Jilong Sect, he
ordered the Taoist priest through gritted teeth to reveal the truth, in a
show of goodwill.
After the Five Blessings left, little demon rabbit Shan Duan had followed
them down the mountain to investigate the origins of this sentence when
Wen Leyang led the others to embark towards the Gold-Consuming Lair.
As Shan Duan did not use his full strength in the series of battles on
the Nine Peaks Mountain, his powers seemed to not have diminished. The
rakshasa on his back was not refined by himself but was a dharma
character produced by karma energy because he had comprehended the
Buddhist Zen Truth. Although the Weeping Buddha crushed it, no harm was
Jilong Sect lost their armies and generals on this venture. They lost
their Sect’s treasured weapon, their supreme leader died, almost all
their elites were badly injured. As such, little demon rabbit had caught
up to them without expending too much effort.
Wen Leyang listened intently to old demon rabbit Bu Le’s words. An
important personage who was significant to the destiny of the right and
evil path of the cultivation world was hidden among the Wen family. This
issue was critical. It could even invoke a massacre between the Mountain
Sect and World Sect of the cultivation world. Wen Leyang himself would
think about this matter when he had nothing to do. He reached one
conclusion. This person might just be… it was most probably himself.
This conclusion had made him secretly happy.
Without him noticing, Wen Leyang had smiled at old demon rabbit Bu Le. He
casually received the carrot given to him by Xiaoyi.
Old demon rabbit had not met a person who smiled at him while holding a
carrot for a long time. He was slightly stunned before continuing, “That
child Shan Duan, had already been refining for more than a thousand
years. The cultivators of Jilong Sect are no match for him. He found out
the whole thing after using some tricks. Hehe, this matter has to start
from Sun Dynasty Palace!”
When old demon rabbit was talking, he had already cast a soundproof Magic
Circle. The people outside the Circle can only see their mouths moving
but could not listen to what they were saying. After all, other unrelated
people should not know about the ‘important personage who is
significant to the destiny of the right and evil path of the cultivation
Visit lig_htnovel_world.com for a better experience After First Uncle Wen
Tunhai finished contacting the engineering team, he sat beside Wen
Leyang. He interrupted and asked, “Wen Leyang, do you still remember Yu
Lingzi of Sun Dynasty Palace?” The soundproof Magic Circle did not
obstruct people from entering or leaving. Those who entered the Magic
Circle could converse as they wished.
Wen Leyang tried to recall for a while. He then nodded with a smile,
“When the Sun Dynasty Palace first came up the mountain to avenge the
doll-faced man, who I killed in the Red Leaves Forest, Yu Lingzi was the
one who led the men. He even used that red little flying sword to injure
you, which ‘You’ve Got Me’ pounced on it in the end.”
Old demon rabbit Bu Le smiled and nodded, “In the end, this matter
happened because of Yu Lingzi!”
In the cultivation world, Sun Dynasty Palace was only a small sect with
average abilities and a below average popularity. It had always attached
itself to Jilong Sect. Yu Lingzi was the first disciple of the Sun
Dynasty Palace’s supreme leader. A few years ago, when he went up to
the Wen family village, he looked to be in his forties. However, as true
cultivators refined qi to extend their lives, Yu Lingzi was actually in
his seventies already.
When Yu Lingzi was still a young boy, he had rescued an old man by
chance. When the old man woke up, Yu Lingzi found out that he was also a
qi-refining cultivator, but had no magical powers.
The old man was eccentric. He held onto Yu Lingzi and relentlessly wanted
to repay Yu Lingzi for saving his life. He said that there was a sword
hidden in a place and he wanted to guide Yu Lingzi there to retrieve it.
At that time, Yu Lingzi was still carrying out his master’s orders. He
dared not believe in the crazy old man. He laughed and wanted to leave.
The old man unexpectedly flew into a great rage. He arranged a few rocks
and boulders, said some unrelated things and lastly chuckled, “I will
wait for you for four days, go!”
Yu Lingzi was utterly annoyed by the old man, he genuinely regretted for
saving him. When he heard that he could leave, it was as if he received
amnesty and he ran away like a puff of smoke. However, the Taoist priest
had never dreamt that in the following three days, the unrelated things
muttered by the old man had all happened to him. He finally understood
that he had met a living god.
When Yu Lingzi went back, the old man was still there, bent over and
lying on the ground deriving Divination Skills without a pause. He did
not seem to hear his approach. Yu Lingzi did not dare to disturb. He
waited earnestly at one side.
After three days, the old man suddenly gave a strange cry. He fell, sat
on the ground and muttered: Broken gong, big flat cake, and the dog!
Visit lig_htnovel_world.com for a better experience When Wen Leyang heard
this, his expression changed as he repeated, “Did this old man say broken
gong, big flat cake and the dog?”
Old demon rabbit Bu Le nodded, “The World Sect had started stirring since
ten years ago. They frequently showed their faces to find these three
peculiar objects. Hehe, this old man had known about them a few decades
Wen Leyang gulped. He frowned and asked, “This old man, could he be Wei
Old demon rabbit nodded, “I think so too. Let me continue.”
Although Yu Lingzi did not understand what the old man said, he had
regarded him as a living god in his heart. He had firmly remembered the
eight words ‘broken gong, big flat cake, and the dog’.
The old man only came back to his senses after a while. He suddenly saw
that Yu Lingzi had arrived. He jumped up abruptly and asked with anger,
“When did you come? What have you heard?”
Yu Lingzi was scared and he quickly shook his head, saying that he had
The old man looked suspiciously at Yu Lingzi and said in a low voice
after a long while, “Secrets of the heavens can be big or small. You have
saved my life, I think it is alright to reveal the small matters to you.
The most it will do to me is make me suffer a little. However, you must
not tell anyone else anything that I have said just now, or else I will
die a tragic death!”
Yu Lingzi swore that he had not heard anything at all and the old man
left it at that. The old man told him about the sword’s whereabouts. Yu
Lingzi was overjoyed. He had wanted to ask about other things, but the
old man had said it all.
Finally, Yu Lingzi started scheming. He coaxed and pestered unceasingly
to make the old man tell him where the old man could be found after this.
Visit lig_htnovel_world.com for a better experience Yu Lingzi was a
handsome young boy then. He had refined his qi since young and was
high-spirited. He made people like him unexplainably. The old man had
obviously been lonely for a lifetime. Moreover, Yu Lingzi was also his
life’s savior. Finally, he mumbled three words, “Nine Peaks Mountain!”
Although Wen Leyang had prepared himself, a boom still sounded in his
head. He grabbed old demon rabbit Bu Le by the hand, “That uncle of Wei
Mo that could derive the world’s situations is hiding on the Nine Peaks
Mountain? In our Wen family?”
Old demon rabbit retracted his hand and nodded, “At least he is on the
Nine Peaks Mountain.”
Wen Tunhai chimed in, “The Nine Peaks Mountain spans across a thousand
kilometers. However, whenever the Nine Peaks Mountain is mentioned, it is
always related to us Wen Bucao.”
Although the Nine Peaks Mountain was an unbroken stretch of
boundlessness, in everybody else’s eyes, Nine Peaks Mountain was equal
to the Wen Bucao, and Wen Bucao was equal to the Nine Peaks Mountain. If
one were to look for someone on the Nine Peaks Mountain, naturally they
would search among the Wen Bucao.
Wen Leyang finally understood. The important personage who is significant
to the destiny of the right and evil path of the cultivation world
mentioned by enlightened person Huang He had nothing to do with him.
This man was Heaven-telling Sect Wei Mo’s uncle. A Divination Skill
expert who was said to be able to completely derive the world’s
situations. After thinking about it for some time, Wen Leyang lowered his
voice and asked First Uncle, “Have you told Wei Mo about this?”
Wen Tunhai shook his head, “Wei Mo is a messy person. We have tried
probing, but he wouldn’t bother about other people. In our family, only
you had some relations with him, so we have waited for you to return…”
He had not finished when heavy footsteps were heard. Wei Mo came running
back. This time, his face was ghastly pale, his eyes lifeless. He ran all
the way to Wen Leyang and stopped. He was panting heavily. He suddenly
reached out and grabbed Wen Leyang’s hand after a while, “I… I
have… have thought it through!”
This time it was Wen Leyang who retracted his hand. Having his hand held
by another man made him felt sick. However, Wei Mo had used all his
strength. Unless Wen Leyang broke his fingers, he could never detach him.
Visit lig_htnovel_world.com for a better experience Wei Mo completely did
not realize what he was doing. His tone was terrified. He stammered on,
“It’s… it’s my uncle! There are generations of Heaven-telling
Sect’s monastics on Mount Emei. Other than him, none had gone into
society. There is no one else who could mess with my derivations other
Wen Leyang took a deep breath, “Following that train of thought, your
uncle had known that you would come to Wen family village, that’s why
he messed around with the village’s setting, making you unable to do
Wei Mo nodded, “That old man was most adept at deriving the fine numerals
of the world’s situation. It’s not surprising that he had foretold
that I would come to Wen family village. I don’t get it, why does he
want to stop me from deriving…”
Wen Leyang chuckled, “I think he doesn’t want to be found by you!” Wei
Mo had been practicing Divination Skill for his entire life. He’s an
idiot-type of genius, completely ignorant of the ways of the world. It
would not be strange for him to not be able to tell such a simple purpose.
Wen Leyang finally freed himself from the grasp. He turned and asked Wen
Tunhai, “Our village…”
Wen Tunhai did not have to wait for him to finish and replied, “About
thirty years ago, there was an earthquake on the Nine Peaks Mountain. We
decided to rebuild the village. We even expanded our scale.
Even if Wei Mo’s uncle was highly skilled, he could have never entered
the Wen family village and build a few houses without reason, or plant a
few trees to mess around with the setting. The only explanation was this
living god had seized the opportunity when the Wen family village was
rebuilding houses and expanding their scale to alter the setting of the
village. These alterations had nothing to do with feng shui or the five
elements. It was solely to cause the Heaven-telling Sect’s mathematics
to not derive accurately.
Grand Elder Wen snorted, “This man had arrived on Nine Peaks Mountain
thirty years ago?”
The other elders looked at one another and shook their heads. In the Wen
family, whether it was Wen family village or the Place of Birth, Life,
Sickness and Death, there were no outsiders. Everyone was a direct
disciple of the Wen clan bloodline. The womenfolk who married into the
family were all from normal mortal families. The in-laws were also
thoroughly checked by the Wen family, but in the end, they did not find
Wen Leyang did not give up. He continued to ask Wei Mo, “Can you find out
where your uncle is?”
Visit lig_htnovel_world.com for a better experience Unexpectedly, Wei Mo
smiled confidently. He nodded with pride, “Now that the village had to be
rebuilt, without my uncle’s meddling, the village will naturally have
its own setup. Wait till the village is completed…” Wen Leyang felt a
sudden chill down his spine. The four elders had recovered, but Wei Mo
was reminding them of the past.
Wen Leyang quickly dismissed Wei Mo, “I’ll call you back to do a
telling after the village is completed.” Then, he did not dare to meet
the elders’ eyes, but smiled passively at the old demon rabbit, “Please
continue. What happened to Yu Lingzi after that?”
Old demon rabbit Bu Le continued to say what Shan Duan had heard.
Under the old man’s guidance, Yu Lingzi, who was a young boy then, went
to Changbai Mountains and found an unnamed volcano. After some
difficulties, he did find a fire element sword, which is called Firetail.
It was this sword that wounded Wen Tunhai but was toppled by ‘You’ve
Got Me’ in the end.
Yu Lingzi had been thinking about the old man’s warning since he got
back to the mountain. He chose to keep the incident to himself. He told
the others that he had unintentionally found Firetail out of pure luck. A
few decades passed in the blink of an eye, nothing had happened. Yu
Lingzi had secretly come to Nine Peaks Mountain a few times but he did
not find the old man.
Yu Lingzi’s cultivation base was far greater than his peers with the
help of the divine sword Firetail. Not only was he the first among the
second-generation disciples, he had also become the most important person
in their sect. When they were faced with something big, he would be
involved. Until about seven or eight years ago, the cultivators of the
evil path who had been hiding in the world had grown even more restless.
Five Blessings of the right path had also determined the cause. The
Jilong Sect disciples passed the order that all mini sects attached to
them were to keep their eyes peeled to look for ‘broken gong, big flat
cake, and the dog’.
Yu Lingzi did not even think about it in his dream that after some ten
years, he would hear the three objects, ‘broken gong, big flat cake,
and the dog’ again. His expression changed on the spot. The supreme
leader of Sun Dynasty Palace noticed that change. When he was pressed to
answer, Yu Lingzi told the truth about him meeting with the old man in
his teenage years.
The supreme leader of Sun Dynasty Palace was also shocked. Although he
did not know what was so strange about a broken gong, a big flat cake and
a dog, anyone could tell, that something that prompted the World Sect to
search for it so desperately must be some terrifying treasure. Out of
greed, they did not convey this matter to Jilong Sect but dispatched
their disciples to the Nine Peaks Mountain to search for the old man.
From that time until present was only a few years. Sun Dynasty Palace had
silently searched for some time in Nine Peaks Mountain. Throughout the
process, they had also kept an eye on the Wen family, but the Wen family
had been strict on their inheritance. There were completely no outsiders
among them. Hence, the Sun Dynasty Palace had excluded them from the
Sun Dynasty Palace had been roaming about in the Nine Peaks Mountain, but
nobody from the Wen family knew about it. The Sun Dynasty Palace
disciples were only found out by the Wen family when they wanted to luck
the fruits of the ripening Return-to-Before Herb.
Visit lig_htnovel_world.com for a better experience The Death Trademark
of the Place of Birth, Life, Sickness and Death had long regarded the
Return-to-Before Herb as a forbidden fruit and they naturally would not
let anyone get their hands on it.
Up until that moment, the Wen family had thought that these shady people
had purposely come into the mountain to fight over the Return-to-Before
Herb with them. They had no idea that they were disciples sent by Sun
Dynasty Palace to look for the old man.
The incidents that took place after that were just as mentioned by the
Jingpo demon lady, who sneaked into the Miao Stockade Village. The Death
Trademark and the Sun Dynasty Palace disciples had fought and killed each
other several times on the mountain. The Death Trademark had suffered
some losses under the cultivators’ magic, but the Sun Dynasty Palace
disciples did not manage to fulfill their wish of taking away the
Return-to-Before Herb. The demon lady of the Miao Stockade Village sensed
that a treasure would appear on Nine Peaks Mountain and brought some
people to sneak into the Nine Peaks Mountain, only to find out that the
ripe Return-to-Before Herb that was completely useless to her.
The Jingpo demon lady, who had sneaked into the Miao Stockade Village,
was originally a member of the World Sect and hated right path
cultivators to the core. Although the Return-to-Before Herb was useless
to her, she would never let the Sun Dynasty Palace disciples go no matter
what. She then cast her witchcraft and killed all the Sun Dynasty Palace
disciples on the Nine Peaks Mountain.
The Return-to-Before Herb was untouched, but all the enemies died. The
people from the Death Trademark were dumbfounded. After they harvested
the nine Return-to-Before Herb fruits, they carried the corpses of the
enemies, which had fallen prey to the Green Head Widow Spell, back to the
Red Leaves Forest. By this time, Wen Leyang had learned the Faulty Punch
and had followed Fourth Elder Wen into the Red Leaves Forest for his
Wen Leyang had seen with his own eyes the corpses of the Sun Dynasty
Palace disciples, who were killed by the Green Head Widow Spell.
Wen Leyang hit himself softly on his temple as if remembering something.
He asked old demon rabbit Bu Le, “When I had just entered the Place of
Birth, Life, Sickness and Death, there was a period where ‘You’ve Got
Me’ was restless. Was it because the people of the Sun Dynasty Palace
had used fire element magic powers when they fought with our Death
Trademark, making the bug react to it?”
Old demon rabbit Bu Le was slightly stunned, “Em… I’m not too
familiar with poisonous bugs.”
Wen Leyang looked at Grand Elder Wen, whose answer was not much help,
“Don’t ask me about cultivation.”
First Uncle Wen Tunhai laughed, “With the working attitudes of you two
old men, you’re suited to work at my former department!”
Visit lig_htnovel_world.com for a better experience When the people of
the Death Trademark brought the corpses and nine Return-to-Before Herb
fruits back to the Place of Birth, Life, Sickness and Death, Fourth Elder
Wen had also received word that there were signs of Grand Master Tuo Xie
in the ancient cave on Mount Emei’s Zhanyan Peak. He left the fruits in
Wen Leyang’s care and led the elites out of the mountain. They met with
the other three elders and went to Mount Emei together.
When the Sun Dynasty Palace did not hear from the disciples they sent to
Nine Peaks Mountain, the Sun Dynasty Palace sent men to look for the
group of missing disciples. This time, the one who entered the mountain
was the doll-faced man.
Wen Leyang smiled bitterly. Ever since he refined poison into his body
and embarked on the road of a Saint’s Body or a Saint’s Poisonous
Body, he had been dragged into the scuffles of the cultivation world
together with his family. From the small cry cultivators to the Five
Blessings elites and even undefeated powerhouses like Cone Nail and
Hanba, he had fought countless uphill battles over the years. However,
his memories of the fierce battle during the stormy night in the Red
Leaves Forest were still fresh. He could remember, even now, the dying
expressions of the doll-faced man. It was his first time risking his
life, and it was against a cultivator with a flying sword.
As to whether the doll-faced man came to the Red Leaves Forest to chase
down the Yin Chi or because he discovered the whereabouts of the corpses
of his peers, was unknown.
The doll-faced man was the most loved final disciple of Sun Dynasty
Palace’s supreme leader. His cultivation base was not bad. When his eye
was stung by ‘You’ve Got Me’, he had conveyed the information of
his death back to the Sun Dynasty Palace. The information he conveyed was
only that he had died on the Nine Peaks Mountain. He did not have the
chance to say whether he was in the Red Leaves Forest or Wen family
village, nor did he have the chance to explain the sequence of events.
The supreme leader of Sun Dynasty Palace was surprised and angered. From
their perspective, even if mortals were strong, they could never hope to
kill the lousiest cultivator. They did not dare to revenge the Wen family
village directly but spent three months to sneak in and spy on them.
Until they confirmed that Wen family was only a mortal family, Yu Lingzi
then followed the supreme leader’s orders and brought men up the
mountain to seek revenge.
Other than revenge, he also had to investigate the whereabouts of the old
man. Yu Lingzi had listed out the strange rule of individual showdowns to
force the old man out of hiding.
Yu Lingzi had died a few years after he leaked the information about the
‘broken gong, big flat cake, and the dog’ to his master. It was
unsure if it was a coincidence, or if the old man’s words had come true.
The elites of the Sun Dynasty Palace’s second-generation disciples were
divided into three batches. Within the short span of a few months, they
had all died on Nine Peak Mountains. By now, the elders of the sect were
really flustered. The elders personally led the men to seek revenge from
the Wen Bucao at the Nine Peaks Mountain. However, they fell prey to the
scheme of the wicked faction Jingpo elites who just descended Mount Emei,
who passed by the Nine Peaks Mountain on their way back to Miao Stockade
Village and were all killed by the Mountain Coffin Spell.
When Wen Leyang and the four Wen Elders came back from Mount Emei, they
discovered their bodies.
By this time, the two rabbit demons had already met Chang Li and Wen
Leyang, ‘claimed a family connection’. The rabbit demons sent a
message to Sun Dynasty Palace in the name of Great Mercy Temple,
defending the Wen Bucao.
Visit lig_htnovel_world.com for a better experience Sun Dynasty Palace
had an unfavorable year. They were already a small sect. However, due to
a moment’s greed, they had lost almost all their elites to baffling
circumstances. They could not accept this no matter what, but they could
not cross the Great Mercy Temple. So, they bore it patiently and
strenuously. Until slightly more than two years later, when Third Elder
Wei of One Word Palace and the remnants of the Blood Sect had perished
together on Mount Emei, the clashes between the right and the wicked had
sharpened immensely. The Five Blessings had joined hands and moved out,
slaughtering the cultivators of the World Sect everywhere. Sun Dynasty
Palace had used this opportunity to rake up the past and brought it to
their backer Jilong Sect.
Qing Niao’s first ascended up the mountain ended in his return in
defeat. This had led to Five Blessings of the right path and the rogue
cultivators to mount the stage in full regalia in Wen family village.
This was the sequence of the events. The incidents that took place inside
Wen family village these few years had basically been connected. All
threads neatly tied up, the beginning corresponding the end. Although it
was not as heart-stirring as the information, which Wen Leyang had
obtained, the cause and effects, as well as the ups and downs were enough
to make one heave a long sigh.
After little demon rabbit Shan Duan had understood the incidents from
Jilong Sect, he used his own secret technique to erase the memories of
Huang He and the others regarding this incident. He went back to the Nine
Peaks Mountain and told old demon rabbit Bu Le everything. At the same
time, Wen Leyang had come out of the Gold-Consuming Lair, calling home
asking them to figure out a way to save the short-statured Leyang Wen who
was kidnapped by Taoist priest San Tong.
Shan Duan immediately embarked towards Eyang Sect. After that, he did not
contact anyone else. Until not long ago, even though he was injured, he
went to Shanghai.
It seemed that because of the enlightened person San Wei, Eyang Sect was
also a place with hidden dragons and crouching tigers. Little demon
rabbit Shan Duan must have been badly injured there and was hunted by the
Eyang disciples. The details can only be known after he wakes up.
Old demon rabbit Bu Le had finished talking about the ‘important
personage who was significant to the destiny of the right and evil path
of the cultivation world’.
This important personage was most probably that uncle of Wei Mo who was
adept in deriving the fine numerals of the world’s situations. He was
significant to the destiny of the right and evil path because he could
seemingly foretell the locations of the three fantastic treasures of
‘broken gong, big flat cake, and the dog’.
What puzzled old demon rabbit, the four Wen Elders and the bunch of
Jianghu veterans more was, whether it was the broken gong, big flat cake,
and the dog or that living god of an uncle of Wei Mo who could do
tellings, nothing seemed to have anything to do with the Wen Bucao.
However, according to Wei Mo’s words, his uncle had secretly altered
the setup of the Divination derivation of Wen family village. If this
living god was truly hiding among the Wen family, it could not only be
because of the Wen family’s good fengshui!
