The Immortal's Poison - chapter-201
The white-robed youth may have been swift but he was no match for Wen
Leyang, Rangjung, and Po Tu. Upon launching their simultaneous attack,
before the youth’s body could even touch the surface of the ice, six
large hands had grabbed onto him firmly.
Gu Xiaojun watched as the youth with unknown origins was caught. A small
smile spread across his face but the three elites suddenly let out a cry
of shock. A layer of white frost had rapidly spread from the youth’s body
and up their fingers. In a flash, their hands were frozen.
The frost shimmered magnificently under the reflection of sunlight,
creeping rapidly up their arms. They were under attack and in self
defence, they prepared to use their powers but before they had even
exerted an ounce of strength, the frost shattered. This had slowed them
down, thwarting their attempt at capturing the youth. Everything happened
in just a blink of an eye and before they could try again, the
white-robed youth had disappeared under the thick layer of ice underneath
With a crack, the pangolin Po Tu attempted to chase after the youth but
only reappeared with an empty, long, white robe in its paws.
When the white-robed youth was escaping, he did not break the ice as he
had first done when appearing. Instead, as his body was about to make
contact with the ice, he merely melted into the ice, like a snowflake
that fell upon a fire, he disappeared without a trace.
Po Tu shook the long robe in its paws helplessly. It pouted its lips and
laughed sheepishly. “This young lad’s magic art is nothing special, just
rare. Which is how he got away from me. I won’t let him get away the next
time I see him, no matter what.”
Wen Leyang was astonished at how the other party managed to vanish so
completely, simply melting away into the ice sheet. He pointed to the
spot where the youth disappeared. “What kind of magic was that?”
On the other hand, head lama Rangjung was frowning. He appeared to be
deep in thought as he stared at the hole that had been made by the youth
Po Tu had let the youth escape and was feeling slightly embarrassed. It
wIt was grateful for the diversion in the topic, hastily answering Wen
Leyang, “This is an Escape Art. almost the same as my ability to burrow
underground but his skill is…”
Wen Leyang chimed in, “The Ice Escape?”
New novel chapters are published on lightn_o_velworld.comPo Tu burst out
laughing. “What the hell is an Ice Escape? This the Art of Water Escape.
Once he is fully trained, he can also use the ice to escape.” As it said
that, Po Tu flipped the long robe about in its hands, looking for any
clues.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better

The long robe was snowy white in colour. Under the reflection of the
sunlight, radiant strands of silver could be detected. The group may have
comprised of experienced and knowledgeable individuals but nobody knew
what material the robe was made of. When Po Tu had given chase earlier,
it had managed to grab the youth, they both used their life force in the
brief struggle yet the robe was not torn nor ripped at all. It was made
with a material of unusually resilient quality.
The giant pangolin fiddled with the long robe yet he could not understand
how it was so resilient. He passed the robe to Fei Fei and chuckled,
“This is a remarkable piece of material, I shall gift it to you…”
Before he could finish his sentiment, a white figure scurried underneath
his feet, as fast as lightning. The figure pulled the robe out of Po Tu’s
paws in one swift attempt. As the group readied for an attack, the figure
dove head first back into the ice, leaving behind a sound of peculiar,
croaking-like laughter. “I think it’s better if you returned my robe.”
Everyone had thought the youth had left. He had been secretly lurking
underneath their feet all along, waiting for an opportunity to seize back
his robe! Wen Leyang the other’s psychic ability had failed to detect any
trace of him.
The divine beast was so angry that its lungs almost burst. A long and
aggressive howl burst from its lips. The beast’s gigantic body jumped
high into the air, bawling up its fists like hammers and slammed into the
ground with a loud bang. It was attempting to use its demon powers that
it had accumulated over the centuries to push the white-robed youth out
of the ice.
The first time the youth managed to escape, it could have been attributed
to the fact that the youth’s magic powers were unfamiliar. To its
surprise, the youth had now managed to seize the long robe right out of
The particularly distasteful part was, based on the youth’s brand of ice
magic, his life force was actually not all that impressive. He relied on
his strange ability to hide his body and the Art of Water Escape to trick
and successfully escape from the clutches of the few strong elites over
and over again.
Wen Leyang and the head lama were so startled that their eyes were wide
in shock. Each one of them took one side as they jumped up and was trying
to restrain the giant pangolin that was thrashing wildly in midair.
Po Tu was finally held down by its two companions. It panted in rage.
It’s bronze eyes shown with murderous intent as it glared at Wen Leyang
and Rangjung. “Why the hell did you stop me?”
Rangjung smiled gently and calmly. “When you burrow underground to
escape, can one find you by digging away the soil? The other party has
escaped by water, you will never capture him even if you crush the whole
ice sheet to pieces. The Art of Escape through the five elements is a
brand of magic. One uses the power of one of the five elements to break
through spaces. The act of escaping by burrowing underground is not like
an earthworm that bore into the soil, neither is the water escape like
how a beltfish swims away in the ocean. If it was, the act of escaping by
fire would just mean that the person who attempted it would be
barbecued…” As he comforted Po Tu, he had also conveniently explained
the Art of Escape using the five elements to the rest of the group.

hastily nodded in agreement at the lama’s statement. In truth, he was
more worried Po Tu might cause an avalanche.
Po Tu’s face was filled with astonishment. “I was not going to simply
break open the ice. I had planned to use the demonic energy of the earth
element to break his escape spell…”
Halfway through the beast’s speech, a pale old face suddenly stuck out
from behind the pangolin’s shoulder. He bared his teeth and widened his
mouth towards the group, Wen Leyang could not tell if the face was crying
or laughing. Wen Leyang’s heart thumped in his chest. Before he could act
on his first instinct to to punch the face, a crisp voice laughed and
reminded him from behind him. “That’s our leader!”
The three master cultivators earlier had moved so swiftly that their
passengers didn’t get the chance to dismount. Po Tu’s passenger, Old Gu,
had suffered greatly from the divine beast’s violent actions. Gu
Xiaojun’s body was fatigued from having to hold on for dear life and had
to rest for half the day before he could continue with the journey.
Despite the startling episode, he still had a clear mind. He stuck his
head out from Po Tu’s back and pointed at the ice hole that the
white-robed youth had created. “Master Rangjung, do you know the origins
of the individual from earlier?”
The group looked towards where Old Gu was pointing and gave out a
surprised ‘huh’. Ti everyone’s surprise, due to the vibrations made by Po
Tu, the sides of the irregular hole had chipped off to form the shape of
a six petaled flower.
Po Tu forgot its anger for a moment and laughed as it spoke, “This flower
is rather beautiful.” Every single petal was round and symmetrical,
forming an ice flower the size of a well. Coupled with the reflection of
the blue sky and the surrounding snow, the ice flower gave of a sense of
sweetness to anyone who looked at it. A cool and refreshing sensation
penetrated straight to one’s heart.
Rangjung moved calmly, not in any hurry to speak. He first placed Xiao
Sha back ontot the ground before procuring four pieces of Vajvakilaka
from his chest pocket. They were densely engraved with mantras from the
Tibetan Buddhism Sect. He jumped up and spun around, scattering his
ritual instruments around them. In a booming voice, he chanted, “Dayata
om gadei gadei bara!”
The Tibetan Buddhism Sect mantra echoed throughout the mountains and the
four pieces of Vajvakilaka shook abruptly in response, projecting the
radiating light of Buddha. The brilliant, golden light reached into the
ice sheet underneath the group’s feet. In the blink of an eye, the ice
sheet turned even more transparent than glass. The frozen soil and rocks
underneath the thousand year glacier could clearly be seen and the youth
was nowhere in sight.
Head lama Rangjung exhaled. “He has left.” Following that, he chuckled
and said, “I won’t say I know about this much but I have heard of this

was a heavenly figure on the highlands of Tibet. He had close
relationships with practitioners from all over Tibet. He took extra care
to keep in touch with the trainees that practiced Tibetan Buddhism. That
was why he could call for help fromm all over Tibet just by using the
human bone flute. He had an old friend who had been meditating and
cultivating in the Tapas monastic practice at Geladaindong Peak, up in
the Tanggula Mountains. That old friend had once mentioned about this
flower mark to head lama Rangjung.
The group become visibly excited. Po Tu urged the head lama, “What did
this friend of yours say? Who was that young lad?”
Rangjung chuckled, “My friend mentioned that there was a tribe living in
seclusion up in the Tanggula Mountains. They like to use this six petal
ice flower as their mark. This tribe of obscure practitioners bears the
family name of Hua.” (Translator’s note: Flower)
Po Tu burst out laughing, “Perhaps the young lad was trying to tell us
his name using this chiselled ice hole?”
“The family name Hua?” Fei Fei frowned, yet still appeared to be smiling,
making her look peculiar yet adorable. “Is this tribe of obscure
practitioners residents of the central plains?”
Head lama Rangjung shook his head. “I am a Buddhist follower thus care
little for other obscure cultivators in the land of Tibet. My friend had
only mentioned this to me in passing, I am afraid I do not know much.”
Gu Xiaojun, Fei Fei, and Xiao Sha exchanged glances. Their initial
purpose of entering the mountain was to pursue and capture the residents
of Tuer Town and the evil sorcerer and now they have come actoss another
obscure tribe of practitioners who bear the family name of Hua. If these
obscure practitioners had been ordinary practitioners, they would not
have been concerned. Seeing the other party’s trick earlier, managing to
escape twice, once from all of the three elites present and the other
even successfully seizing back his long robe from the divine beast, this
was a cause for concern.
Fei Fei was the most cautious one in the group. She continued to frown
and raised the question on everyone’s mind, “Is it possible that the Hua
family is… in league with the evil sorcerer and the Tibetans of Tuer
The expression on head lama Rangjungs face was one of helplessness. “I
cannot say for sure. My friend mentioned that he had close contact with
one of the members of the Hua family. Initially, I had not planned to
call on my friend. After all, his brand of magic and supernatural power
would be of little help to us. However, I think we need to pay him a
visit now since the people of the Hua family have already shown their
face. We need to find out more about this tribe’s origins and background.
As he said that, the head lama Rangjung turned his head towards Po Tu and
laughed. Ï also stopped you earlier because I knew he would be hard to
catch since he escaped using water. Besides, I took into consideration
that if there was no connection between the Hua family and the evil
socerer, your attack might just complicate matters further. After all,
the other party had come over and announced to us his family name. It was
us who did not understand.”
New novel chapters are published on lightn_o_velworld.comThe ice river
that Wen Leyang and the group were heading to was situated on the
Geladaindong Peak on the Nanling Moutain. As they were entering the
mountain from the nortwest direction, head lama Rangjung’s friend was on
the way. He looked at the color of the sky and bent down to retrieve his
ritual instruments. He hosisted Xiao Sha back onto his shoulders. “We
should move quickly so that we can reach my friend’s immortal cave before
Wen Leyang and the group picked up their pace. They moved swiftly across
the vast snow field like a gust of white smoke, following behind the head
lama Rangjung, dashing at full speed.
As the group disappeared over the horizon, the spell casted by head lama
Rangjung on the large stretch of opaque ice sheet slowly dispersed.
The three elites were tense now as there was an enemy capable of escaping
the group’s combined physic ability. Po Tu could look out for the enemy
but he could only rely on its eyes to see and its ears to hear. The three
passengers were alert and surveying their surroundings vigilantly as they
went along their journey.
The white-robed youth did not appear anymore during their journey. It was
clear that he had left the group and was attending to his own business.
The Geladaindong Peak is the highest peak of the Tanggula Mountains. It
was situated six thousand meters above sea level. However, Tibet itself
was also four to five thousand meters above sea level. That was why the
majestic peak did not seem that high. The base of the mountain to the
peak was less than a thousand meters in height. This would not have been
difficult for the few elites of the magical realm but as they scaled the
mountain to Geladaindong Peak, even Wen Leyang who grew up on a mountain
could not help but complain.
The reason why Geladaindong Peak was such a challenge was not because of
slippery ice and snow sludge, nor because it was steep but because it was
wide, making it difficult to climb!
Over the years, glacial cirques, knife-shaped mountain ridges,
pyramid-shaped peaks, and ice rivers formed by frozen ice squeezed
together on the wide mountain ridge. The smaller ones were less than a
hundred meters while the bigger ones were three to five hundred meters in
height. In order to reach the highest point of the Geladaindong Peak, Wen
Leyang and company had to cross through these gigantic ice and snow
cliffs one after the other.
Xiao Sha, who was on Rangjung’s back, suggested softly, “Great master,
why don’t you blow the flute and summon your friend to us instead?”
Rangjung’s laughed helplessly but if one were to listen closely, there
was a tinge of pride hidden in his laughter. “The moment the bone flute
is blown, the whole magical realm of Tibet would be rushing over to help.
This item here is like a megaphone, not a cellphone. There is no way to
use it to call just one person. It can only call to an entire crowd!
Also, blowing the bone flute might alert our enemies.”
New novel chapters are published on lightn_o_velworld.comThe winds on the
mountain were bitterly cold all year round, creating ferocious and
terrifyingly huge fissures everywhere on the higher parts of the ice
cliffs. They looked irregular and mottled, like welts left behind after
an earthshaking war.
The narrower ice fissures were less than a finger’s width while the wider
ones were seven to eight meters. These obstacles would have been very
difficult for an ordinary man but this was only a trivial matter for Wen
Leyang and the other two elites. The three of them braced the strong
winds and did not stop for even a moment, dashing madly all the way
Occasional dark blue lights penetrated to the surface from the depths of
the fissures. Fei Fei could not stand to be silent, even with the strong
howling of the wind. She was still chuckling and telling Wen Leyang,
“Those fissures emit the strange blue light are mineral veins containing
rock crystals. They are one of the precious minerals obtainable only from
Wen Leyang slowed down his footsteps. It was not to look at the rock
crystals but because he was afraid that if he ran too fast, the strong
backwind would choke Fei Fei. So long as he could keep pace with the head
lama, he was on track. He laughed and replied light-heartedly, “Is it
Fei Fei answered with a smile, “Only the ones with high purity are
expensive. The ordinary ones as used as a construction material. It’s a
pretty good paving material.”
Wen Leyang laughed and was about to speak when an unusual ray of light
from one of the blue mineral veins caught his eye. Wen Leyang immediately
whistled for his companions. He turned around and returned to the fissure
he had just crossed. He scaled down the steep ice fissure as agilely as
an ape. It did not take him long to jump onto the mineral vein that was
dozens of meters wide and slightly elevated.
This ice fissure was narrow on the top and wide at the bottom, similar to
the shape of a flattened glass used in the traditional cupping therapy.
This fissure was not formed from rigid ice that had cracked open but
instead was a converging point between two ice cliffs. As strong winds
blew through the mountain peak all year long, the surface of the ice
appeared flat and smooth hence people could not actually tell it was two
separate ice cliffs without looking closely. As the summer season had
just passed, the snow sludge that had accumulated on the fissure had
melted away, revealing its odd shape.
Fei Fei could not tell what Wen Leyang was thinking. As she was about to
inquire about his intentions, she suddenly gave out a soft cry of alarm.
Dozens of long swords were scattered on top of the blue mineral vein.
Wen Leyang immediately cast out his pshyic net, carefully examining his
surroundings. He instructed Fei Fei to light up a few flares for more
light. In the brightness of the flares, he surveyed his surroundings. The
blue colour underneath his feet was the crystal mineral vein. It curved
and twisted in between the two humongous ice cliffs and snaked from the
top to the bottom. It glimmered all colors of the rainbow under the
reflection of the fire from the flares, making one feel dizzy and
bedazzled at the same time.
After he had determined that there was no one else around, Wen Leyang
bent over and lifted up one of the swords. Before he could study the
sword closely, he cried out in alarm and tossed the precious sword back
on the ground.
New novel chapters are published on lightn_o_velworld.comFei Fei was
startled. She jumped off his back, her expression was one of panic. She
lifted the QSZ-92 and asked softly, “What is it?
Wen Leyang was stunned for a moment before he laughed in an almost
menacing manner. He bent over and picked up the sword once more. To his
side, Fei Fei suddenly felt a piercing coldness radiating from Wen
Not a few moments later, the giant pangolin and the head lama was
climbing down the ice fissure in agile movements. They were stunned upon
seeing all the long swords that were scattered on the ground.
Po Tu’s face was filled with puzzlement. It was about to bend over and
pick up one of the long swords when Wen Leyang, who was standing fixed to
the ground, growled, “Stop!” He flashed past the group and attempted to
push Po Tu away from the swords.
Po Tu jumped backwards in haste. Even though it had dodged Wen Leyang’s
attack, it was still startled. It shouted in rage, “What in the world are
Wen Leyang’s expression was not fierce not stern. There was neither
embarrassment on his face but instead had a look of surprise and joy,
like a mad man. He stared at Po Tu and said, “There is poison on the
Po Tu had rarely seen an honest person who had gone mad. The divine
beast’s eyes widened as it took another furtive step back. “Why the hell
are you happy about that?” It paused for a moment before it continued
angrily, “Why are you so damn happy that there’s poison!”
Wen Leyang was not just joyous, he was elated. The last time he had
absorbed any poison this strong was when he first returned to the Wen
family village with severe injuries. The Poison of Life and Death in his
body had absorbed the strong poisons from the boundary spell on Nine
Peaks Mountain and assimilated that using the power of Ying and Yang in
his body, remoulding his bones to become even stronger.
Ever since then, Wen Leyang’s power had improved vastly. After
assimilating the poison, he resumed his previous state towards toxins and
could not be harmed by ordinary poison but his body had not been able to
find any stronger poison to absorb. However, the moment he picked up the
long sword, a rush of ice needles invaded his body upon contact! The
Poison of Life and Death in his body had surged forward like a bed of
hungry snakes, surging out from the gaps of his bones and the pores of
his skin. The poison was assimilated into his body within mere seconds.
Wen Leyang was an expert in poisons and could tell that the strong poison
on the sword was something called Water Poison of utmost purity. However,
the amount was too little. To Wen Leyang, it was like a drop of water to
a big sized camel that was about to die of thirst in the desert.
New novel chapters are published on lightn_o_velworld.comWen Leyang
picked up another sword. It did not disappoint. His Poison of Life and
Death drained the Water Poison upon the sword in a flash. After removing
the poison off the sword did he wave his hands and toss the long sword to
Po Tu. “Be careful. There is strong Water Poison on the sword. It would
be difficult for any ordinary practitioner to withstand its effects.”
It giant pangolin sneered, “Am I an ordinary practitioner?” It lifted its
paws to receive the long sword. The giant beast may be stubborn but it
still shuffled away from the long swords that were scattered all over the
ground. It was aware that Wen Leyang was one of the most poisonous
creatures on earth. Any strong poison capable of rousing Wen Leyang was
certainly not the He Ding Hong. (Editor Note: Arsenic is made from He
Gu Xiaojun may be old but he had sharp eyes. The moment Po Tu caught the
long sword, he could read the ancient scriptures engraved at the bottom
of the sword’s blade. He read softly, “Kunlun… Shock Seal!”
The head lama too took Wen Leyang’s advice. He did not touch the long
swords as he cautiously walked among them. He lowered his head to take a
closer long at the scriptures engraved on the blades. He spoke them out
loud, “Kunlun Dessert Rebel… Kunlun Pointed Chase… Kunlun Perverse
Ridge… these are all the flying swords that belong to the Kunlun
Wen Leyang did not answer. As he picked up one long sword after the
other, absorbing the Water Poison, he suddenly felt a sense of nostalgia
in his heart. He felt as if he had returned to his childhood, plucking
off a handful of Sophora flowers when the trees were in bloom, sucking
off that single drop of clear honey from its roots. Though sweet, it was
merely a tiny drop. After sucking the honey, he would move on to the next
The divine beast Po Tu was in a foul mood. After it had determined that
the flying swords belonged to the Kunlun disciples, the beast’s bronze
eyes widened. “This group of ox noses put poison on their swords?”
Rangjung laughed as he shook his head. “Not necessarily! Strong poisons
are capable of defiling the flying swords. What I believe, a pack of
Kunlun disciples met with an enemy.” Whether one was a demon or an
immortal, one should have grown wiser with age. With the divine beast Po
Tu however, unknown how many thousands of years old it was, instead of
growing wiser, it just cultivated a bad attitude.
The giant pangolin shook its head in disagreement. “I see neither a
living person nor a corpse. The person is gone but the sword is
poisonous!” As it said this, it heaved a sigh. “You are still lacking in
experience. The more impossible something is, the more meticulous the
enemy is. In the past few millenniums, this old one had seen plenty of
Wen Leyang was done absorbing the strong water element poison off the
long swords. When he heard what the giant pangolin had said, he shook his
head, at a loss whether to cry or to laugh. “Even if the poison was
intentionally placed, it should have been placed at a more obvious
location right? If I had not slowed down, they could have filled this
place with all the long swords of the Kunlun gang and we would have
missed them! Let’s not discuss the motive. Even is the Kunlun gang had
been planning to ambush us, Liu Zheng knows about my practice in poisons.
He would not be so foolish as to try to use poison against me.”
“The toxicity on those swords would have been enough to deal with an
ordinary disciple of the Kunlun Sect but it would be far from enough to
deal with any of you.” As he said that, Wen Leyang visibly excited. “I
did not allow you to touch the flying swords because I was afraid that
the Water Poison would be wasted.”
New novel chapters are published on lightn_o_velworld.comThe giant
pangolin had made a fool of itself but it refused to give up. It insisted
on its argument and refused to budge. “Then where are the corpses? Where
are the corpses then?”
There were only the flying swords on the ground but no corpses. The
strangest part, whether it was a disciple of the same sector an enemy,
the Kunlun gang would not have left behind their flying swords when they
buried their dead. Even if the sword was tainted with poison.
The giant pangolin was loudly going on and on at the others about the
devilish ways of the Kunlun Sect when Fei Fei tugged at Wen Leyang’s
sleeve. She used her chin to point towards ahead of them, her expression
was vigilant as she raised the gun in hand, appearing rather heroic.
Wen Leyang took one look and immediately stepped forward to shield Fei
Fei behind him. At the same time, the giant pangolin and the head lama
growled and assumed a defensive stance.
In the depths of the gigantic ice cliff that was as bright as a mirror, a
dozen human figures stood together in a huddle!
Fei Fei let out a long breath and sighed in relief as she saw that the
people were trapped in the ice. She lowered her gun. Wen Leyang still
stood by, speaking in a steady voice, “When I first came down here, there
was nothing underneath that ice. I did not even detect these people with
my psychic net!”
As Wen Leyang said that, the human figures came into clearer focus. It
was not that the human figures had walked out of the ice but more like
the group’s vision gradually focused. There were a dozen people wearing
their hair up in a bun in the style of a Taoist Master and they had on
green robes. They were all Kunlun disciples!
Wen Leyang was sure that he had even met one or two of them on occasion!
The giant pangolin rubbed its eyes in disbelief. It said in a low voice,
“What the hell are you bastards doing?!” It asked its companions,”What
shall we do? Shall I tunnel in and take a look?”
Before the pangolin’s voice had died away, expression of joy appeared on
the faces of the Kunlun disciples’ faces as if they had heard the
pangolin’s words. They nodded their heads vigorously towards Wen Leyang
and his group!
