Chapter 538: Is The Expert About To Move Personally?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Qin Chuyue quickly finished all her preparations to enter the dream.
Li Nianfan was quite happy that Qin Chuyue had given him a discount, and did not ask for any money.
The fact that the money crazed girl was willing to do something like that meant Qin Chuyue was quite satisfied with his lollipop.
Cultivator Yunqiu was sitting upright and still, and he seemed to have lost quite a bit of blood, even his moustache was crooked. The disciples of the White Cloud Sect also sat in a similar manner.
Qin Manyun and Yao Menqi naturally decided to follow when they saw Li Nianfan entering the dreamscape. There were not many chances to be close to the expert and fight alongside him.
“Everyone, get ready. Shut your eyes and sit still.
Qin Chuyue’s expression was serious, she then took out a hundred taels of silver, reluctantly looking at it before taking a deep breath, “A hundred taels, buying emotions, enter the dream!”
At that moment, a torrent of energy appeared, the rhythm of emotion formed a bond with the unconscious men, enveloping everyone else and immediately emptying their minds, like ripples on the water.
When they opened their eyes again, they were already in someone else’s dream.
It was still the same palace, and the objects were the same, but the scenery was completely different.
They were like spectators that had barged into someone else’s dream, and had no way of entering or interacting with anyone in the dream.
“We’ve been separated.” Cultivator Yunqiu sighed as he furrowed his eyebrows, “I knew it would not be so simple. He’s afraid that we’ll interact with those within the dream and wake them up, so he built a shield.”
Minghui asked, “Senior, do you have any ideas?”
“Ah, little monk, is your question asking me to prove myself?”
Cultivator Yunqiu smiled proudly, “I was out of ideas in the outside world, but now that we’re in the dream, I’ll easily be able to wake everyone up.”
Li Nianfan looked around, feeling like something was missing. After some thought, he suddenly realized a very important problem.
“Hey, Lady Chuyue, where’s my little Daji? Where’s Fire Phoenix?!”
“That…” Chuyue paused as well, blinking as she said with some uncertainty, “They seemed to have encountered some restriction by the dream world, and have been excluded.”
It should have been a restriction placed by the secret mastermind.
Their cultivations were probably too high to enter the dreamscape. It was probably a way for the Yan Zu to protect himself, so that was not too strange.
Qin Chuyue could not help but glance at Cultivator Yunqiu. If that cultivator managed to follow everyone in, did that mean Lady Daji and Fairy Fire Phoenix had higher cultivation levels than Cultivator Yunqiu?
Chaos Daluo Golden Immortals?
If that were the case, then who were Mr. Li and the other two?
“Repelled out?” Li Nianfan’s heart sank, he could not help but say, “I suddenly feel like my safety is being threatened.”
“A man needing the protection of women, what’s next?!”
Yunqiu coldly sighed before saying, “Furthermore, I’m here, why would you worry about your safety? Do you not trust me? Let’s go, we’ll find King Zhou!”
‘I naturally don’t trust you.’
Li Nianfan sighed miserably.
‘What do I do now?’
‘I’ll have to take it a step at a time.’
‘If the situation is really off, then I’ll have to open up my Deluxe Merit Saint and expose my identity. I’ll make sure we survive and think about the consequences after.’
Everyone walked out of the palace, and investigated everywhere. Even after visiting all of the buildings, they still could not find any trace of Zhou Yunwu. They could not even find Meng Junliang or the other officials.
None of them were commoners and they immediately felt like something was off.
Cultivator Yunqiu’s expression sank, he said seriously, “We must have entered a different dream world. I’m afraid… things won’t be so easy now.”
“Hahaha, you’re right, this is my world!”
A vicious laughter could be heard in the air, and the next thing that happened was the entire dream world changing.
The palace immediately disappeared, and those busy palace maids and the commoners around them turned into black smoke, condensing in the air to reveal a black and monstrous face.
“You see whatever I want you to see! Everyone avoids my Nightmares, and it’s been so many years since someone dared to intrude upon my Nightmare. I don’t know if I should respect your boldness or laugh at your ignorance.”
“Shameless, you think a rat who only dares to hide in dreams can trap me?”
Cultivator Yunqiu surged forward, mana condensing around his body. He might seem arrogant, but his skills were extremely strong. He was already at the Quasi Saint rank, and his skills were all incredibly effective against demons and monsters.
His face was solemn was he raised his hand. A large compass appeared in his hand. As he wiped his hand on the compass, a sudden bolt of lightning fell from the sky, and striked right at the face.
The face immediately dispersed.
“Oh, how painful, I’m going to die, I’m going to die.”
The demon’s exaggerated laughter could be heard as he mocked, “I was just feeling bored. Let me play along with you, I’ll show you what lightning is!”
A white light suddenly lit up the sky as terrifying electricity started to condense in the air. Dark clouds started to gather and the weather changed completely.
“Set up, Five Elements Array!”
Cultivator Yunqiu shouted and the compass it his hand shot up into the air as a five colored light fell from it, enveloping everyone inside, forming a five colored barrier. The light flowed around and looked incredibly mystical.
“Condense… Spirit Array!”
Yunqiu dashed directly under the compass while the other White Cloud Sect disciples sat crossed legged on the edges of the array, their eyes closed as their mana flowed like the sea, starting to move the compass.
Bright rays of light suddenly shot out of the compass, the fight colors were vibrant, and started to glow in the air like a lighttower.
The rays of light contained the power of the five elements, and each of them had incredibly strong power. Each ray of light was enough to kill a Daluo Golden Immortal!
In a flash, the rays of light became thinner, but the numbers greatly increased. From a distance, the barrier that protected everyone seemed like a five colored sun, emitting an unlimited light that covered the sky!
The strong rays of light were like a hurricane, ravaging through the land and dispersing those thunder clouds in the sky. Not only that, the rays of light were like knives, cutting apart the sky one slash at a time, destroying the Nightmare!
“You stinky White Cloud Sect daoists were quite good. If it was in the outside world, I wouldn’t be able to do anything to you. However, in the dream world, you’re just laughably struggling.”
Yan Zu laughed coldly, “Let me see how long you can hold on.”
After those words, the ground started to split apart, slowly disappearing and turning into a sea of flames!
It was not just the ground, even the air around them and the skies above had turned to fire!
It was a deep red fire, and was hot to the limits.
It was truly a sea of flames.
Only the little barrier in the middle was not submerged within, and the five colored lights were still shining vibrantly.
However, it seemed helpless, no matter where the light shone, the flames would rise again after being extinguished. It seemed endless and limitless!
It was a dreamscape that Yan Zu had created himself. In that place, he could not die, and had unlimited power. Instead, it was Cultivator YunQiu who was forced to expend his energy without being able to fight back.
Bluntly putting it, at the same level of cultivation, there was no way to win when in a Nightmare.
Yunqiu’s expression was heavy, he seemed to use up more and more of his power. If that continued on, everyone would eventually be swallowed by the flames.
He pursed his lips, saying, “Everyone, put all your mana into this compass. The more power we put into it, the more possibilities we will have.
Someone as strong as him putting down his dignity to say those words was enough to show how precarious their situation was.
Compared to the power of a Quasi Saint, Yao Mengji and the others did not have any noticeable power to speak of.
However, everyone knew it was not the time to think of that. Not saying anything else, they threw all their mana into that compass.
“Hahaha, you can’t defeat me, I’m just that strong!”
Yan Zu smiled happily as explosions erupted everywhere. The limitless sea of flames formed another face, looking at everyone gleefully as he smiled, “Controlling the fates of others like this is too wonderful. In this dream, I am god!”
“That’s right, that king should be at the end of his life soon, let me see which of you will fall first.”
“When the human king dies, the Luck of the human race will disappear in a flash, that would be a glorious profit! The Resentful Spirits will only grow more and more, hahaha…”
Cultivator Yunqiu’s face reddened as he spat out a mouthful of blood. He slowly raised a hand, condensing mana into his hand as a glowing silver blade materialized from his chest.
Strings of mana condensed around it, just the sharpness that it exuded alone was enough to move everyone, it seemed to be able to pierce space itself.
He said seriously, “I’ll use this blade to cut through a hole in the Nightmare. You don’t have to care about me, you need to flee!”
The expressions of the White Cloud Sect disciples changed suddenly, their eyes full of tears as they said in determination, “White Cloud Sect disciples don’t back down when facing evil!”
Cultivator Yunqiu shouted, “Stop! Don’t sacrifice yourselves meaninglessly! I said that I would protect all of you before, are you trying to make me a liar?”
A sigh could be heard at that inappropriate moment.
Li Nianfan slowly stood up, having been sitting down and watching the show prior.
Naturally, everyone looked toward him.
Yao Menhji and Chu Manyun’s faces reddened, looking at Li Nianfan’s back was like looking right at a saint. They trembled with emotion.
Was the expert about to make a move himself?
At the same time, they felt a deep sense of regret. They were not able to share the expert’s burden. His sigh earlier… must have been one of disappointment.
The others looked at Li Nianfan’s back in shock.
That commoner… was preparing to do something, and none of them could figure out what.
Under their gazes, Li Nianfan slowly walked to the edge of the barrier.
Stopping at the edge of the barrier, he looked at the intense fire outside before measuring himself.
He had a black robe on that day, and his sleeves were embroidered with silver hibiscus flowers. Both the material and craftsmanship were excellent, and were inspired by the heavenly palace, even containing traces of immortal power.
He was really reluctant to burn it.
Silently cursing, Li Nianfan carefully ripped out a corner. After making sure he would not get injured, he threw the cloth out into the sea of flames…
