“How is it so miraculous? Have you seen it before?”
Beitang Ce nodded.
“I have. In fact, there are many people who have seen it. I’m not the only one.
“However, up until now, not many people have seen the tombstone of the Immortal Soldier. Even I haven’t comprehended a single concept.
“Therefore, it is no longer believed by the world.
However, I think that Mr. Ye’s talent is so powerful that perhaps he can see the profundity of it.”
Ye Xiao was silent for a moment, then he nodded and said,
“Okay, I’ll go and take a look. However, the matter of me studying at the Zhong Martial Arts Academy…”
“Don’t worry, go. Let this old man handle this. I won’t disturb your normal life.”
“Then thank you very much, Senior.”
“No need to thank me. If you can achieve something, you can at least protect the people of the nine provinces. We should be the ones thanking you!”
After the two of them exchanged a few more pleasantries, Ye Xiao followed the directions of the northern route and searched for the Immortal Soldier tombstone.
To him, a mere few hundred miles of distance was simply too easy.
Ye Xiao had almost reached the distance with a single thought.
That was a dilapidated temple hall. At the entrance of the temple hall was written the life and deeds of the immortal soldier, Han Xin. The words on the stone tablet had started to fade due to the passage of time, and there was even a lot of moss growing on it.
Ye Xiao had read the history books. In the ancient times of that world, the martial arts culture was even more prosperous. At that time, there were many people whose strength was enough to stun the river of history.
Slaughter God Bai Qi, Immortal Soldier Han Xin, War God Li Jing…
It was precisely because of those people that they could easily defeat the star beasts. The star beasts were unable to pose any external threat.
Therefore, at that time, the human race was also constantly at war.
Ye Xiao walked into the temple. The inside was also dilapidated and covered in spider webs.
It looked like it was indeed as Beitang Ce had said. No one here believed it a long time ago.
Ye Xiao stepped into the temple. A wave of yin energy immediately invaded his body.
It was a wandering solitary soul hiding in that temple. At that moment, it smelled the fresh blood on people’s bodies, so it began to surround him.
Ye Xiao’s eyes moved slightly. His mental energy burst out and directly shattered the souls of those vengeful spirits on the spot.
Then, he turned his gaze to the stone statue in front of him.
That was the body sculpture of the immortal soldier, Han Xin. Even after more than a thousand years, when ye Xiao saw the other party’s body sculpture, he could not help but feel slightly shocked.
The wind of time had aged his sculpture, but Ye Xiao could still feel a powerful and unruly concept from the body of that sculpture.
That was the concept of looking down on the world, looking down on the world as if it was grass.
Ye Xiao was not Han Xin, nor was he a big shot. His artistic conception was definitely not comparable to an ancient famous general like Han Xin, but he could feel it from it. Furthermore, he could absorb Han Xin’s artistic conception and use it for himself.
Ye Xiao felt that there seemed to be some changes in his soul body. It was as if the increase in soul power was much faster than before.
He took a deep breath and stepped into the temple hall.
The tombstone of the Immortal Soldier was behind the temple hall.
Some people said that there was the corpse of the immortal soldier Han Xin left here. However, for so many years, more than one group of people from the nine provinces had come over to dig it up. However, there were only three feet of yellow soil under the tombstone.
The tombstone had been explored countless times by people. It was just an ordinary stone, but it was as heavy as Mount Tai. Up until now, no one had been able to take it away.
As time went by, it was abandoned here.
Ye Xiao used the Big Dipper’s Grand Mystery to scan the tombstone, but it did not have any effect. The search of his mental energy showed that it was just an extremely ordinary large stone.
Thinking about it carefully, it made sense. There were so many people in the nine provinces, and there would always be someone who had cultivated an imperial level mental cultivation technique.
As an example, Beitang Ce’s eye technique was only stronger than an imperial-level cultivation technique!
However, he still could not see through the profoundness of the tombstone.
‘I’ve always relied on the Golden Book to come here. I wonder if the Golden Book has the ability to see through the things hidden on the Tombstone.’
As he finished that thought, Ye Xiao released the Golden Book divine soul.
That was the second time he released the Golden Book divine soul out of his body. The previous time was because he had dealt with the Great Dragon.
Once the Golden Book was released, the winds and clouds changed drastically. Everything in the world seemed to lose its color.
The surrounding scene began to change rapidly. Time seemed to be regressing and evolving into the magnificent war scene from more than a thousand years ago in the land of the nine provinces.
In that scene, a slender figure, clad in golden armor, stood in the midst of an army of 10,000 soldiers. One hand raised a whip, the other behind his back. He pointed at the land as if war was just a game that he could raise his hand to play.
Ye Xiao could feel that although all of that was fake, that figure carried a power that caused one’s heart to palpitate. It was as if it was as huge as the heavens!
Was that the Immortal Soldier Han Xin?
Even if it was just an illusory figure, it still contained an aura that an ordinary person could not compare to!
Ye Xiao opened his mouth to speak to the other party,
“Junior Ye Xiao wishes to advance to the King realm. Senior, please enlighten me.”
In the unseen world, that illusory figure seemed to have heard Ye Xiao’s words and swept a glance at him. That indifferent glance contained everything as if it was hiding the stars and mountains.
“If you can not kill a king, how can you be a king?”
After saying those four words calmly, all the illusory figures faded away.
That was the disappearance of Han Xin’s will and the shattering of the stone tablet. The last trace of concept that Han Xin left behind for his descendants was completely annihilated.
Ye Xiao’s heart trembled. He stood rooted to the ground, unable to calm down for a long time.
If he could not kill a king, how could he be a king?
Was that the magnanimity of an immortal soldier?
A king was an extremely powerful martial arts expert in the world, and he was also a peak martial arts expert on the space battlefield. Everyone in the world looked up to and respected him.
However, in his eyes, was a king only fish meat?
At that moment, Ye Xiao suddenly thought of a sentence.
A king would rather have the guts than the appearance of a general?
Who was the one who stipulated that a king must have some standard? There must be some realm that people could not find after painstakingly searching!
Could it be that the bloodline of those who had stepped into the King realm was more special than that of ordinary people?
In terms of wealth and glory, there might be some people who stood at the peak at birth, but without the addition of magnificence, the two of them were just flesh and blood.
That was the case for the King realm!
It was not as noble as imagined. The more it was exalted, the further away it was from it.
Only by placing it at the same height as oneself could one step into the King realm.
If he was already in the King realm, what harm was there in killing the king?
I am the king!
The Golden Book had already entered Ye Xiao’s body once again. At that moment, Ye Xiao’s body had also undergone a huge change. He could feel that his mental energy was continuously increasing, receiving an increase in mental energy. Ye Xiao could feel that his spiritual energy was also continuously increasing.
The surrounding spiritual energy began to rapidly gather towards Ye Xiao’s body.
In the blink of an eye, the entire temple was torn into pieces. A whirlwind revolved around Ye Xiao continuously. Fallen leaves and broken bricks floated in the air. Ye Xiao’s body was like a huge magnetic field一it made them revolve around him.
On the other side, in the forest outside Zhong city, two figures gathered outside the forest.
“That idiot Shadow Bat is already dead. He was killed by the human race.”
“We have also lost Norfis’s whereabouts.”
“I didn’t expect that after being locked up by Shaolin for hundreds of years, so many martial arts experts from the human race would appear. Looks like just relying on the strength of the two of us is completely insufficient to cause an impact on the human race. Perhaps, it’s time to awaken those few people in Zhong city.”
“The beast calamity is imminent. We must let the humans feel the terror brought by the star beasts and break their courage in battle.”
Time flew by. In the blink of an eye, seven days had passed. Zhong city was still as calm as usual.
However, outside Zhong city, where the three rivers met, a strange figure suddenly appeared.
He wore a black robe and was tall and thin. His proportions were completely different from those of a normal person.
A pair of large hands that looked like withered branches extended from his wide sleeves and clapped his hands. The real 108 human warriors appeared in the sky above the river.
When the warriors suddenly appeared and saw the rapid river flow below, they all had a bad feeling and started to scream.
However, just as they shouted, the other party’s hands immediately formed a seal and exploded the bodies of all the martial artists on the spot.
About 108 balls of blood essence slowly fell into the river like a long snake, forming a strange pattern on the river surface.
In an instant, an intense roar came from the bottom of the river.
Vaguely, a few huge beast shadows appeared in the rushing river water and started swimming.
Black fog gradually surged out from the sky, filled with evil power.
The black shadow let out a strange laugh.
“Wake up, Tree Demon Adolus, Python King Kun Long, Ice Lord Gu Sheng, and Sword God Azura!
“Follow me and bring fear to the human race!”
In Zhong city, Beitang Ce, who had been reading in the library, suddenly frowned and disappeared with a solemn expression.
When he reappeared, he had already appeared in the sky above Zhong city and was sweeping toward the outside of the city.
A few other powerful figures also quickly came to his side.
Two of them were Shi Guanghao and Lang Xinyue, who were ranked in the top 50 on the World Dragon list when they first went to Jianghai city!
“Senior Beitang, this aura, could it be… ?”
Beitang Ce nodded with a solemn expression.
“That’s right, it’s them. Someone broke the seal.”
“Who did it?”
Beitang Ce’s fire spirit eye flashed, and two beams of dark light seemed to pierce through a hundred miles away, easily seeing the situation in the distance.
“It’s a star beast! A divine-level star beast. It should be one of the star beasts that escaped from Shaolin.”
“We’ll go and take him down immediately.”
“There’s no time. The array has been destroyed, and it’ll be completely liberated in ten minutes at most. Without the array master, it’ll be a waste of our time.
“Inform the citizens of the Zhong city to quickly move north and try to avoid this disaster.
“Inform the nine provinces alliance to send one of the four martial arts experts over.. Otherwise, Zhong city will be finished.”
