The Immortal's Poison - chapter-219
The shout was like a thunder! Gopaka!
Thousands of golden light beams suddenly erupted from the crystal ore
cave. A glossy golden giant arhat statue dropped down from the sky and
abruptly landed on Tian Yin’s head! At the same time, a zen chant sounded
from the jade knife with a flowing rhythm. The buddhaghosa of ‘prajna
paramit’ drowned the entire ore cave like crashing waves from a raging
Tian Yin had always been keeping his guard up against Guo Huan’s
self-destructing Demon Body Breaking Spell, but nobody would have thought
that the one who activated his magical powers was the other primordial
soul who was out cold within the jade knife. What surprised the others
even more was that the primordial soul was Taoist priest San Wei, but the
magical power he activated was the prized Buddhist magic art.
Gopaka (a name) was one of the nine hundred arhats who resided on Mount
Kailash. He was one of the Sixteen Arhats who kept the peace. The Sixteen
Arhats had been ordered by Buddha to not enter nirvana but stay in the
mortal world for eternity!
The arhat’s golden body arrived with a boom. It had already slammed Tian
Yin under itself since its appearance. Tian Yin did not even have the
chance to crush the jade knife. In his haste, he threw the jade knife
away and pushed upwards with all his might. He wanted to push this arhat
as heavy as Mount Tai away. Unexpectedly, when he had just activated his
life vitality God’s power, suddenly, a soft ‘pop’ was heard and the base
of the arhat shattered. The entire arhat statue was like a jacket,
envelopingTian Yin within itself.
Currently, the jade knife had not even touched the ground yet nor did Guo
Huan had the time to laugh out loud. The golden-bodied arhat shook
violently and cracks upon cracks appeared on its body in an instant. It
cracked and healed. Then, the face of Gopaka’s golden body strangely
transformed into Tian Yin!
The zen chant of ‘prajna paramit’ did not stop but there was a touch of
anxiety in the tone. Tian Yin’s laughed villainously with a ferocious and
furious face. His body which was still enveloped in the golden arhat
shook clumsily. Then, he extended one arm and strenuously reached for the
jade knife which was still flipping in mid-air.
The golden-bodied arhat seemed to be destroyed by Tian Yin. Lines of
mottled cracks erupted and expanded. The speed of its recovery obviously
could not keep up with the power of Tian Yin’s struggle!
At this moment, Wen Leyang finally gave in to the firecrackers’ invasion.
He quickly opened his mouth and spat out You’ve Got Me fiercely. He saw
‘You’ve Got Me’ making a beautiful return arc in mid-air because it was
unwilling to leave its master and he scolded, “Scram! Save yourself…”
His voice barely faded when his mouth suddenly felt cold. A
‘firecracker’, which was the equivalent of at least shoe size fifty-four,
curled itself and crawled into his mouth!
‘You’ve Got Me’ wailed and its little body leaped up. It did a somersault
in mid-air, the bristles on its body stood up. Amidst the shrill howl
that almost made itself cough blood, it mercilessly pounced on Tian Yin’s
face! ‘You’ve Got Me’ was mentally connected with Wen Leyang. It
understood that its master would not die after being controlled by the
bugs, but if Tian Yin did not die, Wen Leyang could never live.

A pure silver giant tide rose suddenly among the bug tide and chased
after ‘You’ve Got Me’! Water and fire inter-restricted each other, their
nature was irreconcilable. The ‘firecrackers’ had chased after Wen Leyang
relentlessly partly because ‘You’ve Got Me’ was hiding inside Wen
Cone Nail also seized this opportunity to attack. Amidst the flapping of
her sleeves, her thin frame was wrapped in an unprecedented air as she
pounced towards Tian Yin almost in unison with ‘You’ve Got Me’…
San Wei’s primordial soul had suddenly attacked and Gopaka had appeared.
Tian Yin was sealed by the arhat’s golden body but managed to transformed
its face as he broke out of the cocoon. ‘You’ve Got Me’ was spat out.
Cone Nail suddenly attacked. The bug tide rolled. Everything happened in
the blink of an eye. The jade knife only fell to the ground with a
pleasing clank after the wave caused by the bug tide covered Tian Yin,
who was inside the arhat’s golden body, Cone Nail, ‘You’ve Got Me’ and
the eight living dead. Almost at the same time, a muffled loud explosion
shot towards the sky from Wen Leyang’s mouth!
The size fifty-four firecracker had flattened its head and crawled into
Wen Leyang’s mouth. Wen Leyang did not have time to think about how gross
it was as he reflexively shut his mouth with all his might. The scattered
Poison of Life and Death managed to turn, although its power of poison
was not much, it unexpectedly imploded the bug within his mouth.
The Poison of Life and Death was the Chaos within the five elements
poison. It was the great ancestor of all toxins. Although the water
element poison of the firecracker was thick, it did not have any grounds
for retaliation under the Poison of Life and Death.
However, Wen Leyang had understood then, why these bugs were called
‘firecrackers’ and not bangers…
The explosion led to a series of explosions. In the bug tide where
everyone was in harmony, the explosion of one bug affected the other bugs
like firecrackers. In no time, the entire bug tide erupted!
Once the firecrackers exploded, not only was the sound terrifying, what
made it worse was that they would release the utmost water element
poison, which they had accumulated throughout their lives.
In the blink of an eye, all hell broke loose in the ore cave.
Other than the jade knife, the bug tide had enveloped everybody else.
With the loud explosions, the bug tide had turned into a real poison
tide. It was an utmost cold and pure poison tide of the water element.
Follow current novels on _lightn_ovelworld.comAmidst the explosions, a
clear and pleasant but wild and gallant laugh and a hysterical scream
intertwined with each other. Suddenly, a monster, which was rotten beyond
recognition, struggled to escape the poison tide. It squalled with a
voice that was uncertain if it was a wail or a furious howl and stumbled
as it escaped towards the exit of the ore cave!
A brief moment later, a weak young lady, who made one’s heart shudder,
stood up from the poison tide with a genuine happiness. She staggered as
she walked before Wen Leyang and smiled with bright eyes.
Cone Nail was originally the embodiment of heavenly water. Even if the
‘firecrackers’ released more Poison of Water, they could not harm her.
However, this was not the case for Tian Yin. Before the firecrackers grew
up, they did not need much effort to kill a cultivator with poison. Now,
not only had they grown bigger, their toxicity had also increased
greatly. In addition to that, several thousands of them had gathered
together. Whether it was Tian Yin’s body or peerless demon immortals like
Hanba and Chang Li would not have been able to withstand a poison as pure
and strong such as this!
Tian Yin’s dharmakaya was heavily wounded. If it died, the true soul
could exit the body and possess another one but there were only two
others before him. One of them had poor cultivation base by Xiang Liu’s
standards, the other was gravely injured and on the brink of death. The
jade knife could accommodate a soul but even a fool would not consider
that abode. The true soul had pondered and felt that even the heavily
wounded Tian Yin’s dharmakaya was much better than these few people. That
was why Tian Yin activated his life vitality to nullify the poison and
If one were to look upon the world, those who had a quality that
contested Tian Yin’s body, other than the near-dead Cone Nail and badly
injured Guo Huan, there was only the cat demon Chang Li. It was only
natural that the true soul would hate to part with such a rare body.
As for the eight living dead who bore the ‘ingredients’, they did not
even have the chance to struggle before their bodies were destroyed by
the utmost water element poison.
Weakness was written all over Cone Nail’s face but her gaze was bright
and joyful. She stood before Wen Leyang and carefully opened her fist…
‘You’ve Got Me’ was stunned. It coiled up within Cone Nail’s fair and
delicate palm and shivered…’You’ve Got Me’ could not summon the erratic
Molten Metal Fire Bell but it unintentionally led the bug tide towards
Tian Yin, who struggled to break free of the arhat’s golden body
shackles. Then, Wen Leyang ‘pulled the string’ and the bug tide exploded.
The bug tide had turned into a crashing wave of Poison of Water in the
blink of an eye. It sent Tian Yin running and killed eight living dead
with poison. The initially scattered Poison of Life and Death within Wen
Leyang’s body was suddenly active. It was like a group of earthworms that
was almost dehydrated to death but was finally blessed with pouring rain,
it swam out as it waged its head and tail and started to greedily gobble
up the Poison of Water which invaded his body.
Follow current novels on _lightn_ovelworld.comThe Poison of Water had
substance but had no form. It flowed lightly and noiselessly after it
erupted. It treated Wen Leyang like the toilet’s funnel as it surged
towards him with great momentum.
The extremely familiar heavy feeling which left a deep impression on Wen
Leyang became clearer and clearer. An immense pressure flowed from the
Poison of Water’s envelope, making him hard to move. However, the Poison
of Life and Death cheered and leaped as it flowed rapidly among his
tendons and bones. It rushed out of every corner of his body and formed a
great torrent in the blink of an eye. It absorbed and assimilated the
Poison of Life and Death wildly.
A great calamity had turned into an unexpected happiness. The few
thousand ‘firecrackers’ had expanded and ate the crystal. The Poison of
Water in the bugs did not increase in purity and strength but the volume
of the poison increased tremendously. This strange poison was more
majestic than the Poison of Earth and Poison of Metal, which he had
absorbed before. If his body was not remolded by the Poison of Life and
Death and the force of Yin and Yang, his body would not have been able to
withstand this monstrous Poison of Water.
The Poison of Life and Death howled and swirled. Wen Leyang’s stamina was
restored in the blink of an eye following the assimilation of the Poison
Only a fraction of the Poison of Water outside Wen Leyang’s body had been
assimilated. The other poison still surged and flowed in great force,
firmly shackling him. He could hardly move his body but his mind was
clear. His eyes lit up when he saw that ‘You’ve Got Me’ was also
miraculously alive, curling into a ball out of fear within that fair and
delicate palm. The red and white contrasted finely with each other.
Cone Nail’s satisfaction was full of naivete. She was not afraid of the
Poison of Water by nature. She stood beside Wen Leyang and smiled
clearly, “I’ve saved your bug, how will you thank me…” She had not
finished when the word ‘me’ turned into a muffled ‘wah’. A mouthful of
bright red fresh blood spurted out of her mouth without warning and
sprayed onto Wen Leyang’s face!
Cone Nail’s body went askance and she fell limp beside Wen Leyang but her
palm was still held high. She propped ‘You’ve Got Me’ up in mid-air and
did not let it drop into the Poison of Water.
Even under the immense pressure of Poison of Water invading his body, Wen
Leyang could not restrain himself but growled hoarsely, his gaze was
anxious and helpless.
“Young lad, she’s dying!” Guo Huan’s voice was still so rigid, but it had
a slightly anxious tone to it right now. “She’s already an arrow at the
end of its flight and she had taken a blow when she attacked Tian Yin
just now! If you want to save her life, you must find the heavenly water
spirit and return here!” His voice barely faded when a stifling long howl
suddenly sounded from the thirty-six thousand pores on Wen Leyang’s body.
Wen Leyang’s eyes were bloodshot and his whole body shivered. He was like
a hatchling that was desperately trying to break free of the shackles of
the eggshell, he used all his energy and stood up but still looked
powerless. Under the terrifying pressure of the Poison of Water, he
slowly walked towards the depths of the ore cave.
Follow current novels on _lightn_ovelworld.comHe walked very slowly. He
looked as if he would fall down at any moment. The angle at which his
body slanted put his eyes a few feet from the ground! When he moved, the
Poison of Water that had just calmed down a little would surge and roll
again. The raging poison waves roared and beat on the surrounding crystal
rock walls. One particularly huge wave surged and wiped the four big
words ‘Thirteen Shall Not Pass’ from the wall with a loud muffled bang!
Every step he took seemed like the end of the world. Wen Leyang could not
even say a word. He could only make muffled moans from his throat. He
vanished at a turn in the ore cave from Cone Nail’s tear-filled eyes.
The roar of the surging Poison of Water was further and further away.
Finally, it vanished with Wen Leyang’s departure. The ore cave was once
again enveloped in silence. Cone Nail sighed as she shuddered. Her arm
went limp, she could no longer prop ‘You’ve Got Me’ up as it fell softly
The Poison of Water had left. ‘You’ve Got Me’ tried to calm its
frightened self, but it missed its master and took pity on but was afraid
of Cone Nail who saved it. He went around in circles in frustration.
Occasionally, it spiked up its barbs and poked the living dead’s bodies
to vent its anger.
At this moment, Guo Huan’s voice sounded again, “Hey ugly, you won’t die
San Wei’s primordial soul’s voice was tired and aged, his voice was so
dry it made people suffocate, “Living or dead, it’s all the same…” He
had not finished when his voice went hoarse. It was obvious that it took
a lot from him when he activated his magical powers.
If the primordial souls of San Wei and Guo Huan, which resided within the
jade knife, had bodies of their own, their abilities should be on par
with the peerless demon immortals such as Cone Nail, Chang Li and Hanba.
Tian Yin had obtained Tian Shu’s and Tian Hua’s life vitality force by
trickery, his cultivation base must have been a tad higher than Chang Li
and the others. However, among these peerless people, if they did not
have a proper fight, it would be hard to say which one of them was
San Wei did not have a body, he activated his magical powers using his
primordial spirit. The power was slightly inferior, but even so, it had
caused Tian Yin a great loss as he was caught off guard.
San Wei was continuously tortured by the body which the Wicked Soul had
left behind for more than a thousand years. His life’s biggest wish was
to kill the Wicked Soul in order to cleanse his dharmakaya of the
Foulness and evil energy. He was extremely familiar with Xiang Liu’s
aura. That was why he had woken up the moment Tian Yin showed up. He had
been in a deep slumber all this while and his primordial soul had the
chance to recover. Hence, he could directly activate his magical power
without having to use ‘Demon Body Breaking Spell’. Guo Huan and San Wei
lived in the same dorm. Guo Huan knew that San Wei had already woken up.
Hence, Guo Huan distracted Tian Yin to create an opportunity for San Wei
San Wei’s primordial soul had just activated his magical powers. He was
now exhausted and was adjusting his breath to cultivate himself. Guo Huan
initially had a question, but he had to let it go for now.
Follow current novels on _lightn_ovelworld.comWen Leyang took step after
step towards the depths of the ore cave. His feelings could only be
described with one word. Mountain!
There was a huge mountain before him. He could not dig through it nor
could he pass it. He could only push the mountain with his hands if he
wanted to advance forward! There was a huge mountain on top of his head
which made him unable to straighten his back and lift his head, he could
only use the entire strength of his abdomen to not let himself fall down!
There was also a huge mountain behind him. He could not shake it off nor
could he escape. He could only tow the mountain along as he advanced with
The Poison of Life and Death absorbed the poison of the utmost five
elements, then assimilated them to turn it into Wen Leyang’s own
strength. However, this process was not completed in one stroke, he had
to take it slow if the power of poison was vast. When he first absorbed
the Ground-Breaking Toad Xiu Er’s Poison of Earth at the Miao stockade
village, Wen Leyang could not move for almost a whole year. A few years
went by with the flick of a finger, he also absorbed Poison of Metal, the
force of Yin and Yang of the Yin Army and the Buddhist prayer bead and
the Wen family’s hundreds of poisons. Besides, his body was remolded
after the poison veins, the force of Life and Death within his body could
not be equated with what he had then.
When the water rose, the boat rose with it. The force of his Poison of
Life and Death was great but the Poison of Water of the few thousand
‘firecrackers’ was stronger than Xiu Er’s Poison of Earth by leaps and
The water element poison was absorbed by the Poison of Life and Death but
it could not enter into his body all at once. Hence, they accumulated a
scary force and pressed tightly on Wen Leyang from all sides. Judging by
the situation, the current Wen Leyang was in a similar predicament as the
time when he was inside the toad’s stomach. However, the only difference
was that he had a strong body and tough bones now, he could manage to
walk as he gritted his teeth. His tendons and bones could still hold
together but they were on the verge of breaking apart.
There was only the sound of raging waters in the ore cave. As expected,
the thirteen powerful Prohibition Spells were not activated. Wen Leyang
also could not tell the difference between this part of the cave and the
outside, other than it was narrower in here. It truly was as what Guo
Huan had said, the Prohibition Spell, which Guo Huan’s true soul dared
not challenge, had no effect whatsoever on normal people.
After he walked for a while, the living dead Tibetans, who had entered
the cave beforehand, started appearing and wanted to kill him. The living
dead were like maddened rhinoceroses and were rushing towards him
fiercely. When every living dead appeared, they were wet. Countless drops
of water trickled down their hair and clothes. If Wen Buzuo was here, he
would certainly ask with a smile, “They must be Thais. Did they just go
to Songkran (the water-sprinkling festival)?
The living dead all wailed and crashed onto the ground the moment they
set foot on the silvery Poison of Water. They struggled briefly but
stopped moving in a while.
Wen Leyang had not expected this to occur. It was a little amusement to
this arduous journey. The Tibetans were not afraid of death. However,
without Tian Yin’s direction, every one of them had a one-track mind,
they could not reach Wen Leyang.
Every step he took was like a thousand years, the next step was as
endless as eternity. Wen Leyang walked along the path of corpses for an
unknown length of time. When his gaze scanned the corpses, he faintly
sensed that something was wrong somewhere, as if he had overlooked
something but he could not put a finger on it. He was pondering when
suddenly a loud thunder, which could have shattered the heavens, erupted
beside his ear. Then, thousands of lightning bolts erupted and fiercely
pierced his eyes!
Follow current novels on _lightn_ovelworld.comIn comparison, the boom
released by the Thunder’s Heart Sand was like a mosquito’s buzz, and it
was a soft mosquito… Wen Leyang felt as if two huge waterfalls crashed
into his ears from the left and right. He was caught off guard and fell
to the ground. He only calmed down after a brief moment. The huge sound
just now was not a thunder, but… the sound of water! The strong light
which had tried to blind him was not lightning, but it was the shining
sharp glare of water.
It was only now when Wen Leyang gritted his teeth and sat up again did he
notice that he had reached the end of the ore cave.
Before he took his final step, he could not sense even a bit of the light
of water, nor had he heard the sound of water. With just one step,
everything had turned into this situation. There was only an emptiness in
front of his eyes, an extremely colorful emptiness. It even made Wen
Leyang felt as if he had already vanished, there was only endless water!
Wen Leyang was suddenly unsure whether to laugh or cry. The end of the
ore cave was not what he expected. A small table was placed at the end of
the ore cave. There was a golden box on top of the small table. The
golden box contained a water bead which color was still unknown. He
wanted to take the water droplet out of the box to let Cone Nail
The ore cave was truly an ore cave. It was excavated from the exterior of
the Jianggendiru Glacier all the way into the empty mountainside. If it
was not for Wen Leyang’s slow pace, he might have just fallen over into
the mountainside from the edge of the ore cave.
If he looked up from the depths of the mountainside, the ore cave was
starkly a cliff that stuck up abruptly. Wen Leyang now stood on the edge
of the cliff.
There was a huge waterfall that hung below the cliff. The waterfall was
so majestic that it made one wanted to cry, laugh, and scream wildly. It
roared and crashed fiercely onto the mountainside. The sound of water
roared like the howl of a giant dragon.
Wen Leyang took a deep breath. He tried hard to calm his thoughts. The
ore cave was connected to the empty mountainside. Along the way, there
were only clean, flawless and pure crystals. There was also a waterfall
which hung close to the end of the cave, but… where did the water come
Of course, the water came from above. At the end of the ore cave, a giant
stalactite, which source could not be seen, was like a divine awl that
pierced the sky. It hung silently. It was so transparent that it was
easily missed by the casual observer.
The visible parts of the stalactite were rounded and smooth as if they
were polished by countless master crafters. Their surface was smooth and
level, it was suffocating in its perfection. Only the tip of the
stalactite was slightly flawed as if a finger pad-sized chunk was chipped
off, it was slightly strange.
Follow current novels on _lightn_ovelworld.comThe roof of the ice
stalactite could not be seen but its tip hung just a few meters from
where Wen Leyang stood. A drop of clear water hung on the tip of the ice
stalactite, shiny and showed signs of dripping. The moment Wen Leyang
noticed it, it broke free of the ice stalactite with a light laugh like a
playful elf. It twinkled as it fell…
That drop of water crashed onto the edge of the ore cave…
Wen Leyang squalled and fell on his buttocks again!
This small drop of water fell and crashed onto the edge of the ore cave.
It erupted into a thousand-meter dark-colored torrent!
A drop of water had been shattered, most of it scattered in all
directions as if cast with some magic of the gods. They quickly turned
into a thousand of surging and roused water dragons in mid-air. They
flowed along the mountain’s peak and converged into a waterfall as they
flew straight down with a cold resolution. The remaining parts stayed on
the crystals of the ore cave silently.
This water droplet that flowed down from the ice stalactite was
impressively the legendary heavenly water spirit. After all, there would
not have been another droplet in this world that could form a waterfall.
Wen Leyang was delighted but worried. He was definitely delighted to find
the heavenly water spirit but god knows how many years this stalactite
was needed to form this single drop of water, what were the odds that one
drop of that water just dripped when he arrived…
Luckily, the heavenly water spirit did not seem too precious for this ice
stalactite. After some time, another drop of water condensed slowly. Wen
Leyang raised his eyebrows and stared in anger as he stretched out his
shaking hand, at the same time he tried to lean back as much as he could.
A drop of water was a waterfall, the heavenly water spirit must have some
weight. It was highly probable that he would be smashed down the
mountainside by this force as heavy as a mountain when he received the
water in his palm…
After a while, another drop of heavenly water spirit appeared. Finally,
within Wen Leyang’s longing and anxious gaze, it shook ever so slightly
and dripped lightly!
There was no terrifying weight as he had imagined. Wen Leyang only felt
an indescribable coolness which penetrated his marrows spread quickly
from his palm and emanated to his whole body in the blink of an eye. In
an instant, even his hairs shivered in cold. Wen Leyang did not have the
time to cheer when a huge wave rose amidst a loud boom. It crashed on him
heavily and he fell to the ground. The heavenly water spirit immediately
erupted into a monstrous wave of water once it was disturbed. It
scattered with vigor in all directions and eventually flowed out of the
ore cave’s edge and formed the thousand-meter waterfall again!

water could not be affected by external forces! If there was even the
slightest disturbance, it would erupt with a bang and turn into normal
