Chapter 957: Yang Tian’s Traces!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Mount Tai was also known as Mount Dai, Dai Zong, Dai Peak, East Mountain, and Peak Tai. It was one of the five peaks of China.
As the mountain was grand and majestic, it was lofty and heavy, and it was respected as the supreme of the five peaks and the No. 1 mountain in the world.
In ancient times, Mount Tai also symbolized the Great Emperor of Mount Tai, East Mountain, and was regarded as the closest place to the gods in the human world.
Therefore, since ancient times, the emperors of all dynasties had tried to go to Mount Tai to hold a ceremony to worship the heavens.
The so-called ceremony to worship the heavens was when the emperors reported to heaven and earth about their great achievements in reorganizing the world, and at the same time, expressing their acceptance of heaven’s mandate to govern the human world.
An hour later, the group successfully arrived at the Jade Emperor Peak on Mount Tai. The Jade Emperor Peak was also called the Peace Peak and the Heaven Pillar Peak. They were named after the Jade Emperor Temple on the mountain peak.
As far as the eye could see, the ancient pine trees were verdant, the clouds filled the sky, and there was no lack of ancient ruins and cliff tablets.
There were people everywhere.
At the very center were many small mountains. On these mountains, there were already people from various forces. They gathered together to warm themselves up and looked at the people around them with warning expressions.
In the past month, the various forces had fought many battles to gain control of the mountain, causing the stench of blood to linger in the air.
The reason being through these small hills, one could see the Jade Emperor Temple in the distance, as well as the purple fruit tree that grew on the cliff. On top of it was a purple fruit the size of an adult’s fist.
Under the contrast of the rising sun, the purple fruit emitted five-colored light. It glistened with divine splendor, as if it was a natural Dao Embryo. A strange fragrance lingered, tempting one’s heart.
It attracted Ye Chen’s eyes as well. There was a flash in his eyes, ‘Purple Embryo Fruit! It’s actually a Purple Embryo Fruit!’
The so-called Purple Embryo Fruit could bring a mortal back from the dead, as well as growing flesh and bones. On the other hand, if a cultivator consumed it, their cultivation level would increase tremendously, even elevating to a whole new level.
Of course, it was only limited to below Nascent Soul, because at the Nascent Soul, the cultivation was mainly about the primordial spirit.
Ye Chen came to a realization, ‘No wonder the scheming patriarch risked his life to come here. He clearly wants to reach mastery-stage Golden Core through the Purple Embryo Fruit!’
However, the Purple Embryo Fruit had yet to ripen!
It was also the reason why all the forces present still maintained a relatively peaceful situation. Once the Purple Embryo Fruit ripened, an unprecedented battle would probably erupt.
In the distance, on the few mountains closest to the Purple Embryo Fruit stood several powerful figures.
“Did you see that? The young man on the second mountain on the left is the fifth-ranked Dark Left Hand, Chu Kuang!”
At that moment, a mutant next to Ye Chen extended his finger and pointed. He then introduced the person around secretly.
Ye Chen looked in the direction he was pointing at and saw that the young man called Chu Kuang was bald. At that moment, he had his arms crossed before his chest and was resting with his eyes closed. The aura that he was vaguely emitting secretly shocked many.
“The one with eight fox tails next to Chu Kuang is the Nuwa the Creator Consortium’s Qin Bingyan, ranked fourth on the Mutant Leaderboard?” Someone else asked.
“That’s right, it’s Ms. Qin!”
The person from before nodded and said, “It’s said that her father is one of the upper echelons of the Nuwa the Creator Consortium. Before the spiritual energy recovery, the Qin family’s wealth was considered to be the greatest in Sichuan!
“Everyone says that Ms. Qin possesses the bloodline of the fox cult, and her every word and action is naturally enchanting. She can be considered a rare beauty. Seeing her today, she truly lives up to her reputation!”
Many people clicked their tongues in amazement.
Ye Chen glanced at the lady called Qin Bingyan and released his Divine Consciousness to sense the bloodline in her body.
‘It really is the bloodline of the fox cult!’
He nodded to himself, ‘Looks like it’s a bloodline reversion, and her grade isn’t low. Looks like this Qin family’s ancestor should’ve produced a nine-tailed celestial fox. Could it be a descendant of Daji during the Shang dynasty?’
Almost in that instant, the figure of a lady dressed seductively like an enchanting concubine shook. A trace of fear appeared on her pretty face.
A young man in a suit beside her noticed it and immediately said, “Bingyan, are you alright?”
Qin Bingyan shook her head slightly, and then she sized up the crowd with a blank expression. She bit her lips lightly and said, “I don’t know why, but it seems like someone was spying on me earlier, and it made me feel a chill run down my spine, yet I can’t find that person.”
“How is this possible?”
The young man in the suit looked surprised, “You’re a level-8 mutant. You can even fight an ordinary level-9 mutant!”
“I suspect that there are mutants above level-9 here!”
Qin Bingyan secretly sucked in a cold breath and said with a trembling voice, “The other party is very likely an ancient almighty or an ancient saint!”
The young man in a suit immediately looked wary.
“There’s no need to find that person anymore!”
Qin Bingyan shook her head and said, “Perhaps I’m imagining things. Our top priority now is to find a way to communicate with that senior at the Jade Emperor Temple. We must not let the other four consortiums succeed.”
“I still need to find Yang Pojun!”
The young man in the suit gritted his teeth and said word after word, “This guy is a coward. He hid himself when he realized that he was no match for the five mutants!”
Ye Chen chuckled softly and expanded his Divine Consciousness to cover a radius of 3,000 meters. He was trying to find Yang Tian and the Patriarch of Hell.
However, when his Divine Consciousness reached the Jade Emperor Temple, it was repelled by a mysterious force.
Ye Chen lifted his gaze. A hint of curiosity flashed through his eyes, ‘There’s a formation around the Jade Emperor Temple. Could the group of ancient almighties who suppressed the Patriarch of Hell be among them?’
Just as he was about to spread out his Divine Consciousness to invade forcefully, a strange expression appeared on his face.
It was because he could sense with his Divine Consciousness that there were two pandas approaching from 2,400 meters away.
They were two pandas, one big and one small!
The smaller one was chubby and had a round belly. With a pair of dark circles under its eyes, it walked over leisurely like a ball rolling on the ground.
The bigger one was relatively huge. With its butt stuck out, it would look around with a guilty conscience every few steps.
The big panda stood on its tiptoes and whispered as it walked, “Foolish Qiang, are you sure this method will work? Will they really not notice us?”
“Jeez, c-can you stop looking around like a thief? Even a fool can tell that there’s something wrong with you.”
The small panda said as it rolled, “In the past, when I was at the zoo, I-I stole the Liuwei Dihuang teapills that the director kept for himself.”
“A-Also, can you not call me a fool? My name’s X-Xiao Qiang. Let me remind you again!”
The big panda mumbled, “It’s a pity that I, Yang Tian, was forced to this extent. The patriarch has screwed me terribly this time!”
Just as he was about to say something, he suddenly realized that someone was looking at them. He quickly shut his mouth. The flirtatious and small panda swaggered past everyone.
The person from Fuxi Taiji asked impatiently, “Have you found Yang Pojun yet?”
“No, we’ve sent many more people, and we’ve almost searched the whole area, but we still haven’t found him!” Someone replied.
“Continue to send more people. We have to find him before the mutant fruit ripens. If he’s alive, we have to see him. If he’s dead, we have to see his body…”
While they were talking, they saw two pandas walking past them, but they did not mind.
“What a cute panda!”
At that moment, a joyful voice rang out. A woman in a purple dress walked over quickly and hugged the two pandas.
“It’s Shen Lingxi from the Spiritual Energy Recovery Consortium, ranked sixth on the Mutant Leaderboard!” Someone recognized her immediately.
Someone saw Shen Lingxi hugging the two pandas tightly and said with jealousy, “Oh my god, if only I were those two pandas!”
“Where did these two pandas come from?”
Someone from the Spiritual Energy Recovery Consortium kindly reminded her, “Miss, be careful. They might be mutated beasts. They might be aggressive!”
“It’s fine. How aggressive can such a cute panda be?” Shen Lingxi shook her head nonchalantly.
At the next moment, she hugged the big panda even tighter, so tight that it was practically touching her chest.
“D*mn, this woman has the smell of a fox. I can’t take it anymore!” A suppressed voice sounded.
Then, under everyone’s gaze, the big panda in Shen Lingxi’s arms shook and turned into a person.
A living man!
Shen Lingxi hugged him just like that.
Shen Lingxi stared blankly at the man in her arms, unable to recover from the shock.
