Gu Qing Shan returned to Bai Hua hall.
At this point, Bai Hua hall had returned to silence.
Everyone else had already gone back to rest, only Bai Hua Fairy remained on her Throne of Ten thousand Flowers.
She was currently leaning on the throne with one hand holding up her cheek and spoke in thought: “Even if you tell him all of that, I’m not sure if it’ll be useful for him”
Gu Qing Shan smiled: “Senior brother is only used to slacking off, I’m sure that if he was serious, he would understand”
In the sky above, dark clouds began to gather.
The rain became heavier.
The midnight rain slowly turned into a shower.
And after a few moments.
“A Tribulation already? That was much faster than I thought” Gu Qing Shan was surprised.
Bai Hua Fairy also appeared glad and commented: “Let’s hope he’ll be able to cultivate seriously longer than the previous times”
She released her inner sight to observe Qin Xiao Lou and found that Qin Xiao Lou sat with both eyes closed on the kite, completely unfazed by the heavy rain, giving off a sense of seriousness unlike ever before.
“Xiao Lou’s Tribulation will probably continue for a while, Qing Shan, we can talk about your troubles first”
“How did Shifu know I had troubles?” Gu Qing Shan was surprised.
“I could tell” Xie Dao Ling stared at him, “ever since you returned, I could tell that your mind wasn’t at peace”
After a brief silence, Gu Qing Shan smiled deprecatingly: “I really couldn’t escape Shifu’s eyes”
He tapped his Inventory Bag to take out a long jade box and opened it.
The cracked and damaged Earth sword silently laid inside, silent and dormant.
Gu Qing Shan raised the Earth sword for Xie Dao Ling to see.
“The Earth sword? Why is it damaged so badly?” Xie Dao Ling muttered.
She flew down from the Throne of Ten thousand Flowers, landed in front of Gu Qing Shan as she carefully observed the sword.
“It is already on breaking point- this shouldn’t be possible, what exactly did you run into?” Bai Hua Fairy questioned.
Gu Qing Shan answered: “We met a monster that I’ve never seen ever before, at the time, in the lost world of the Old Gods, that monster was only an inch away from taking my life, only after the Earth sword used its full power and all of my Soul Points that we were able to kill that monster”
Gu Qing Shan didn’t hide a lot of things from Xie Dao Ling.
But regarding the giant corpse and the monster, he still hadn’t told her everything.
Even as he talked about the [Orders] from before, Gu Qing Shan only glossed it over and didn’t mention where he obtained the [Angel Order]
Because there were some secrets that the mere act of mentioning them will be recorded in time and space, and will be noticed by some inexplicable existence.
That monster was too eerie, so much so that Gu Qing Shan had no intention of telling anyone.
This wasn’t that he didn’t trust them, but rather him being cautious, and a form of protection for those close to him.
Protection for both the giant corpse and the people of Bai Hua sect—— as long as they didn’t know about this secret, no danger would befall them without notice.
Xie Dao Ling reached out her hand and softly touched the body of the sword: “It’s dying”
“That can’t be!” Gu Qing Shan refused to accept it.
“But it’s true, the sword itself has turned ashen, the sword spirit fell into an unconscious state, it won’t be able to hold out for too long”
Xie Dao Ling sighed: “It was already damaged, so being able to protect you that way was already the last thing it could do”
“Can Shifu repair it?”
“In this state, I won’t be able to repair it, no one in the cultivation world will be able to repair it” Xie Dao Ling shook her head.
Gu Qing Shan’s mind went blank.
The Earth sword was the sect’s heirloom, something Shifu herself granted him.
Gu Qing Shan once thought that by bringing the Earth sword back, Shifu would be able to repair it.
But now, it seems that was nothing but my own one-sided hope.
From the start, I already knew, when a sword is broken this badly, it would be very hard to return to normal.
I just never wanted to accept that fact.
Gu Qing Shan lowered his head.
The Earth sword had been his companion for over half of his cultivation journey during this life.
Do I really have to let it crumble and die?
-there have been too many cases where if the Earth sword wasn’t there, with my cultivation at the time, the situation would have been a lot more dangerous.
For example when I killed Zhao Wu Chui.
If the Earth sword’s power wasn’t so far out of his expectation, he wouldn’t have been killed by a single attack.
And against that monster, without the Earth sword using its full power, I would’ve already died.
The hall fell silent.
Thunder rang out, again and again, echoing across heaven and earth but Gu Qing Shan just stood there, stunned, unable to notice any of it.
The Earth sword.
Can’t be saved anymore.
Gu Qing Shan felt desperate.
After a while, he took a deep breath.
He bowed towards Bai Hua Fairy: “I have to go”
“Go? You’ve only just returned” Bai Hua Fairy was surprised.
“Yes, to be able to see Shifu safe, Xiao Lou improving himself, Xiuxiu growing up, Qing Rou and Wan Er both settling in, I no longer have any regrets”
“Where are you going?”
“Wandering the infinite worlds to find a way to repair the Earth sword”
“The Earth sword is definitely not a normal sword, not just anyone will be able to repair it. I’m afraid it might have already died before you can find someone capable of repairing it”
“It is my sword, it saved me, so now I have to save it”
Saying that Gu Qing Shan once again clasped his fist and bowed.
“Shifu, I hope you will allow me to leave”
Xie Dao Ling looked at him, then asked: “Where do you intend to go find a solution?”
Gu Qing Shan spoke: “I will first return to the Justice Iron Fist Club, then use the Super Dimensional path to find Barry’s circle of friends and see if they have any solutions”
Xie Dao Ling fell into thought.
As the thunder continued to echo, lightning strikes illuminated the hall from the outside.
Thanks to the intense light of lightning, Gu Qing Shan could clearly see the hesitation and troubled look on Xie Dao Ling’s face.
Shifu has always been a willful and decisive person, any decisions she made so far have been swift and quick, so why is she making such an expression right now?
Gu Qing Shan was surprised.
At this time, Xie Dao Ling’s gaze once again fell on Gu Qing Shan.
She silently gazed at Gu Qing Shan until finally, she softly asked: “Qing Shan, during your time travelling the infinite worlds, have you studied under another master? Or joined any other sect?”
Without waiting for Gu Qing Shan to answer, she added: “I don’t mind you studying under others, a truly strong person knows to learn from everywhere they could. I just want to know, have you officially joined any other cultivation sect?”
“I have not” Gu Qing Shan answered.
Xie Dao Ling silently nodded.
Apparently having made her decision over something, she sighed: “Truthfully- your solution wouldn’t have worked. Those Lord-class Combatants themselves are powerful beyond belief, but the Earth sword isn’t something they can repair”
She waved her hand to arrange several dozen formations at once, then further used several Secret Arts to fully soundproof the entire Bai Hua hall.
“From now on, we can only talk through inner sight, absolutely do not say anything aloud”
Xie Dao Ling continued to probe him: “What this sword can kill, Qing Shan, do you know about it?”
Seeing Shifu so cautious, Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but focus and recall.
Ever since that time during the frozen calamity, he found out that the Earth sword can kill the Hellspawns from Huang Quan.
And those Hellspawns can technically be thought of as low-levelled Demis who manage Huang Quan.
Gu Qing Shan sent his voice through his inner sight: “The Earth sword… can apparently kill Demis”
Xie Dao Ling simply looked at him without saying anything.
Gu Qing Shan stopped, then suddenly realized something.
Right, the 900 million World Layers itself was created by the Old Gods, but this sword can kill Demi, that in itself is strange.
No one would specifically create a weapon to kill their own descendants.
Gu Qing Shan silently thought.
Then Xie Dao Ling sent her voice to him: “This sword was my old sect’s ceremonial sword, something that the founding master of our sect brought back from the Primordial Heaven realm”
“To repair this sword, you must go to the Primordial Heaven Realm and find its other half”
Gu Qing Shan looked at Shifu, temporarily unable to process her words.
Her old sect?
The Primordial Heaven realm?
Its other half?
There was a lot of information packed inside these two sentences.
But without waiting for him to ask any other questions, Xie Dao Ling had continued.
“The world believes that the original heaven realm have been destroyed and disappeared without a trace”
“But I, the last remaining disciple of Barren Cloud Heavenly Palace, remains, and I know that isn’t the truth”
“If you want to repair the Earth sword, you must enter the Primordial Heaven realm and find the Earth sword’s twin sword”
“The sword’s name is Heaven, the Heaven sword”
“The twin swords Heaven and Earth, that which was made to kill the Old Gods”
“Qing Shan, I originally didn’t want to tell you about this, but I know that for a sword cultivator, their swords are their everything. Instead of allowing you to wander the outside world aimlessly and fail, falling into dejection while losing the Earth sword in the process, I would rather tell you the truth instead”
“Your mental fortitude and wits are already more than enough, but unfortunately, you still aren’t qualified to go to the Primordial Heaven realm”
“Shifu, have you been there before?” Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but ask.
“Of course I have, in fact, every sect master of Barren Cloud Heavenly Palace would have one chance to enter the Primordial Heaven Realm- otherwise where did you think I learned so many Samsara Divine Skills?”
Xie Dao Ling smiled bitterly and spoke: “In the past, when I was still a disciple of Barren Cloud Heavenly Palace, I once saw the sect scripture said that our founding master once discussed Dao theories with the Old Gods, I had thought that it was nothing but the sect’s own claims”
“Until I finally entered that world”
