Before Tianqing had rushed to the Drunken-heart Garden, he was told that Qinghan had gone insane and had murdered two family members and had set the entire eastern part of the Ye Castle ablaze. Also, Qingkuang was held hostage by Qinghan. Thus, he had immediately rushed to the scene to verify these rumors. Now, he was completely baffled, as he couldn’t figure out how Qinghan suddenly had the ability to kill cultivators in the Realm of the General. As far as he knew, Qinghan was only in the Realm of the Elite.

“Could it have something to do with the Awakening Ceremony? The nine-colored halo?” Tianqing was curious at the vast progress Qinghan had made within these last two months. However, because of the intense atmosphere, he had held back from asking this question.

“Yeah, we need a proper investigation.” Another elder said. He, Tianxing, was also greatly confused about Qinghan’s rapid progress, just like Tianqing.

“No, I disagree. I don’t believe that it’s wise to disturb the elders’ cultivation with such trivial events.”

“Yeah, I also disagree. Look at this bastard… He doesn’t deserve an audience with the great elders. He even called them old folks!”

“Yes, this bastard is too presumptuous…”

All the elders present expressed their opinions, however, almost none were unbiased. Just as Ye Qiang had decided to secretly send someone to inform Ye Tianlong, Ye Jian concluded, “Since most of you disagree to disturb the great elders, then there is no need to talk about this anymore. And I persuade those who intend to secretly invite the great elders to give up on this decision. As for my son… I bet that Qinghan won’t hurt my son any further, otherwise, I won’t be lenient to his sister. Let’s see if he dares to gamble on his sister’s life.”

During the previous discussion, Qingkuang had conveyed some message to his father. He has send these messages using his soul. These messages made Ye Jian realize the true intention of Qinghan’s request to see the great elders.

As a cultivator in the Realm of the General, Qingkuang was not supposed to learn advanced techniques, but his father had personally taught him this conveying voice skill. Qingkuang told his father, that the light in Qinghan’s eyes was what had made him briefly lose consciousness.

“That must be an integration technique! Ye Qinghan, you lucky bastard, you actually learned some advanced technique with the help of that rubbish dog of yours.” Based on what his son had told him, Ye Jian predicted that Qinghan had grasped a high-level technique.

“Wait… How can a fourth-grade battle beast be so powerful, as to teach its master such an advanced soul-related integration technique?” When he thought back to the nine-colored halo at the Awakening Ceremony, Ye Jian’s heart rate was quickly accelerating. He was determined to kill Qinghan once and for all. In order to consolidate his current family status, he wouldn’t allow Qinghan, who, in the future, might be more powerful than his father Ye Dao, to stand in his way of becoming the leader of the family.

“An hour later, you’ll know whether I have the courage to gamble with you or not.” Qinghan replied to Ye Jian’s threatening question. He clenched the dagger in his hand, but he didn’t know that Ye Jian had already vowed to himself to eradicate him.

The crowd was silent. They were all anticipating each other’s responses, especially among Qinghan, Ye Jian and Ye Qiang.

The atmosphere turned out to be a little bit suppressed and awkward until… a soft voice broke the ice.

“Brother? Is that you? Brother!” Chapter 40 – The Hopeless Situation (2)

Actually, Qingyu had already woken up before Ye Jian”s arrival. However, once she had come to her senses, she was struck by a series of mysterious information, which was causing her a lot of trouble to digest. She had learned that she had indeed a Jade Spirit Body. The ritual of Soul Sacrifice would help her activate the concealed power within her body, and then transfer this power to her lover, who would obtain a terrifying amount of power for a short period of time. If her lover had entered the peak level of the Realm of the Prince, then he would even be able to break into the Realm of the Emperor, once he absorbed the inborn Yin Qi from Qingyu’s body.

“Do I really have this mysterious power? Do I really have a Jade Spirit Body?” In the beginning, Qingyu was suspicious about this seemingly farfetched information.

Nevertheless, the more she knew, the more convinced she became. During the past fifteen years, she had never become sick, not even a cold, as though her body was ill-free. She had even wondered, whether she had the power of self-healing. She remembered that her forehead was bleeding, but now she couldn’t find the wound. She didn’t know that she was actually saved by Qinghan’s bronze ring. If it wasn’t for Qinghan’s efforts to pour his own healing blood into her mouth, she wouldn’t have woken up so early.

Finally, she opened her eyes, after she had grasped the method of Soul Sacrifice. The first thing that she saw, were her brother’s familiar shoulders. Looking at the back of Qinghan, she screamed in utter disbelief, “Brother? Is that you? Brother!”

“Qingyu?” Qinghan turned his head over his shoulder. When his eyes met the pure, pearl-like eyes of Qingyu, his heart was instantly melted.

Qingyu was overly excited to see her brother again and finally managed to utter some words, “Brother… I’m… I’m so happy that you are back.” Suddenly, a mixed feeling of sadness and happiness drowned her heart… However, this didn’t last for long. Abruptly, she squealed in terror, “Ah, brother, watch out!!”

“Watch out?” Looking at Qingyu’s frightened expression, Qinghan swiftly put his dagger on Qingkuang’s neck, as he tried to instantly kill Qingkuang.

– Swoosh! –

However, compared to this sneak-attack, which originated from a cultivator who was in the Realm of the Emperor, Qinghan’s speed was simply too slow. Even cultivators in the Realm of the General had the ability to extract Battle Qi, let alone those in the Realm of the Emperor. Back when Qinghan had turned his head around, Ye Jian had instantly released a stream of Battle Qi. He had then utilized this opportunity, when Qinghan’s attention was distracted by his sister, and formed the stream of Battle Qi into a thin, almost invisible needle. Therefore, without any warning, one of Qinghan’s arms was silently stabbed by the needle.

Sadly, the thin needle accurately poked into the meridian in Qinghan’s arm, which was instantly paralyzed. The black dagger dropped to the ground, and Qinghan stumbled backwards with a pale face. Out of fury, he lifted his unharmed left arm, and aimed his left palm towards Qingkuang’s back. Unexpectedly, the needle suddenly turned around, and flew towards Qinghan’s left hand this time. Subsequently, the needle continued to randomly poke into Qinghan’s body.

– Boom! –

The power of Ye Jian, a cultivator in the Realm of the Emperor, was simply too overwhelming. He directed his needle and broke most of Qinghan’s meridians within seconds. The worst of all was, that all of Qinghan’s tendons in his hands and feet had also been cut off by the needle. One false move was quickly leading to the failure of the whole plan.

As Qinghan fell down, Qingyu threw herself upon him and yelled disconcertedly, “Oh, no! Brother!” She felt as if her heart had broken, when she saw Qinghan lying paralyzed on the ground, much like a boneless worm.

“I recommend that we immediately detain Qinghan. Hopefully we can then properly investigate the causes that led to this event.” With a deep sigh, Ye Qiang figured out an expedient way in order to protect Qinghan from being killed by Ye Jian. Although he did realize the dangers when Qinghan had turned his head towards Qingyu, he couldn’t offer him any help in front of so many elders.

“No need to do so!” Ye Jian said, before he formed a palm of Battle Qi, which he used to snatch his son back. He then put his son in front of another elder, instructing him to heal the wounds on Qingkuang’s body.

Afterwards, Ye Jian turned back again, as he threw a cold glance at Qinghan, “Today, I believe all the elders here have witnessed the evil doings of this bastard. So, I suggest that we should hold the trial and interrogation right here and now. In my opinion, for this shameless, insane outlaw, we should execute the death sentence immediately. I’ll be more than happy to do it myself.”

“I second that! As a warning to others, I suggest that we also hang Ye Qinghan’s corpse on the execution stage for three days!” Ye Ron replied in a scornful manner, as his scar quivered while he spoke.

“I agree!”

“I abstain from voting!”

“I object!”

“I second that!”


The angry yelling of Ye Jian and Ye Ron had encouraged the other elders to make their decision. Among them, some actually appreciated Qinghan’s courage to challenge the authority in order to seek justice. However, right now, Qinghan was beaten up by Ye Jian, who was most likely to become the next family leader. Therefore, no one dared to offend Ye Jian. Some of them just kept silent or gave up their rights to vote for the final decision on Qinghan’s execution.

Needless to say, the final decision of the Elder Clan was in Ye Jian’s favor – Qinghan was supposed to receive the death penalty.

“I refuse to accept this judgment. I demand to see the family leader!”

Things didn’t go as Qinghan had expected, he groaned desperately, as his heart was saturated with an unspeakable bitterness and helplessness.

In front of this group of elders, most of whom were in the Realm of the Emperor, any negligence would lead to death. Actually, Qinghan didn’t fear death at all, as he had already died once before. However… his sister… all he worried about right now was Qingyu!

“Qingyu, It’s my fault. I’m not strong enough to protect you. My dear sister, promise me, that we’ll still be brother and sister in our next life.” Realizing that his demand was neglected by the elders, Qinghan knew that he was doomed today. Strangely, this fact made him feel completely depressurized from the previous intense atmosphere. He stared at his sister emotionally, and managed a bright smile before he softly whispered to Qingyu.

“No, brother, you won’t die. I don’t want to be your sister anymore…” Qingyu replied with watery eyes. She kept shaking her head, “To be honest, I’ve always desired to become your wife. Hopefully, one day, I can give birth to your chubby son…”

“Er? My wife?” Out of shock, Qinghan repeated his sister’s words. He had never known of these feelings of his sister.

Looking at the bewildered expression on Qinghan’s face, Qingyu nodded firmly as if to show her determination. She replied sincerely, “Brother, ever since I was adopted by father, I was determined to marry you. I am yours alone. However, it seems that we aren’t meant to be… Brother, if we die and meet again in the next life, will you still marry me?”

Qinghan suddenly remembered certain words his sister had said to him in the past.

“Brother, I have a question for you. If… if I ask you to leave this family with me, and find a remote town to spend the rest of our lives together in, would you accept that?”

Remembering what Qingyu had told him after their mother’s death, Qinghan came to realize that Qingyu had been wishing to be his wife and live peacefully together.

However… he only realized this now! Qinghan nodded his head just as firmly as Qingyu did, and said, “I will, I will! Qingyu, I’m so sorry… sorry…”

Finding no way to make up for his mistakes, Qinghan just kept apologizing to Qingyu.

“Brother, don’t say sorry. Promise me, that you’ll stay alive…” Qingyu stopped crying, instead, she revealed a charming smile. At the same time, her eyes were filled with tenderness and affection, as if she was about to do something sacred.

“Hey, you two, are you finished?” Ye Jian was apparently annoyed by their conversation. He then moved closer to them, as he was trying to cut off the rope on Qinghan’s back.

“Stay alive!” Qingyu yelled at Qinghan, while a glimmer of a holy beam could be seen on her face.

Seeing Qingyu’s abnormal behaviour, Qinghan’s heart palpitated.

“Qingyu, no! Oh, my sister, stop!”

“Ye Ron, stop that crazy girl!”

Ye Jian sensed the dangerous atmosphere ahead of him, so he released more Battle Qi and formed a golden sword, trying to chop Qingyu to death.

At the same time, Ye Ron also rushed towards Qingyu, as he was stretching his hands out to catch her.

To everyone’s surprise, in the next moment, the situation turned upside down. Hey guys, I’ve some sad news… I’ve actually been on holiday and due to that won’t have internet tomorrow and friday. I hope to have internet access on saturday again, sorry for leaving you guys on such a cliff 🙁

Chapter 41 – Soul Sacrifice


Numerous beams of holy light blossomed from Qingyu’s body, until she was wrapped in a white halo.


When Ye Ron, who was trying to catch Qingyu, touched this white halo, he was violently pushed away by the mysterious power it exerted. Immediately, one of his arms was severely injured, as even the cracking sound of bones could be heard.

– Boom! –

The sword of Battle Qi created by Ye Jian had also drawn close to the halo. Once they collided with each other, a formidable blast broke out, creating waves upon waves of fierce shock waves. All the elders stepped back by the force of this power!

“What? What is going on?”

“What… what kind of mysterious power is this?”

“Gosh, it seems that I have sensed a touch of some mysterious atmosphere…”

The whole crowd of elders stood dumbfounded, as though they were just hit by thunder. Experienced as they were, they seldom encountered anything like this.

– Hiss! –

Qinghan’s clothing was torn into strips by the power. Meanwhile, Qingyu, with the halo still lingering around her body, gradually rose up in the air. Her delicate face, bathed in the white rays, was perfectly portraying her holy, breath-taking beauty. Right now, with the effect of the halo, she looked like a fairy from heaven, no one dared to stare directly in her eyes.

“Brother! Promise me, you must stay alive!” Qingyu stared at Qinghan lovingly and showed a smile of true happiness. The tenderness in her eyes could almost melt the whole world.

Hardly had she finished her words, or she closed her eyes, and began to utilize the power within her body. Suddenly, without any wind, her dress stirred and her hair danced in the air. Eventually, all of her black hair turned white.

“Soul Sacrifice!”

With a scream, Qingyu opened her eyes. She rolled the whole halo up into a luminous ball, before she threw it directly into Qinghan’s body. Afterwards, she gave Qinghan a final glance. Gradually, she descended onto the ground, her eyes closed, permanently…


Qinghan screamed out while he firmly clenched his fists. At this moment, he was so inconsolable, that he didn’t realize that the white rays inside his body, were healing his wounds at a stunningly fast speed. Actually, not only did the rays recover him, but also endowed him with a temporarily mighty power. However, Qinghan had no interest in this newly-obtained power, the only thing he could think about at this moment was his sister, who was lying there motionless. He could’ve lost his sister forever!


“Soul Sacrifice? What the fuck is that?”

“I’ve never heard of something like that either. Honestly, I was overwhelmed by its power. At first sight, I thought that an immortal had descended from the Heavens. Oh, God, this is terrifying…”

“Does anyone here know something about this Soul Sacrifice? What kind of power is it?”

“Thank goodness. Despite the imposing momentum, it didn’t injure anyone. Now, I suppose that girl is already dead. Personally, I’m rather glad to see that it was just a false alarm.”

The elders didn’t care much about the miserable howls of Qinghan, rather, they were more interested in the mysterious power, that was generated by Qingyu. This terrifying power was simply beyond their comprehension, so they engaged in a hot discussion among themselves.

“I know.” Elder Tianqing had been silent, but now he suddenly broke in, “Qingyu possesses a Jade Spirit Body, which is one of the two holy bodies in this continent. All of us should feel guilty about her death. Because of our wrong judgement, we have forever lost a holy body; at the same time, we have also lost the opportunity to raise an advanced cultivator, who, with the help of the holy body, could reach the peak level of the Realm of the Saint! Therefore, I will confess today’s events to our leader.”


“Jade Spirit Body!”

The mentioning of the Jade Spirit Body stirred the crowd up – some shocked, while others showed regret, and still others pitied the death of Qingyu.

Ye Qiang coldly gazed at Ye Jian, as he predicted that Ye Jian and Ye Ron would be punished once their family leader. Of course, only after Ye Tianlong was notified about the loss of a holy body.

“It would be possible that Qinghan would’ve been allowed to cultivate with the help of his sister. Oh well, fortunately, we’ve rooted out this possibility.” Ye Jian thought to himself, as he was in a gloomy mood. He was pondering on what Elder Tianqing had just said, when his eyes suddenly lit up with shrewdness.

“Ye Ron, we’d better run away immediately.” Ye Jian anxiously shouted to Ye Ron.

Right now, Ye Ron was busy healing his own injured arms. He jerked his head towards Ye Jian, trying to figure out what he was yelling about. Finally, he managed to stand back up and retreated according to Ye Jian’s instruction. Before he left, he threw a vicious glance at Qinghan. However… hardly had he managed to take his eyes away from Qinghan, or he was temporarily blinded by two glaring beams shot from Qinghan’s eyes.

Without a single warning, Qinghan bounced up from the ground and dashed towards Ye Ron. The black dagger, like a demon’s sickle, cleanly cut through Ye Ron’s neck, who was in a state of total blackout.

“Ye Qinghan, how dare you!”

“Stop, Qinghan!”

Despite the quick response of Ye Ron, Qinghan had already outran him and cut his neck. Immediately, Ye Ron fell down onto the ground, his hands pressing against his neck, as he was trying to reduce the bleeding. At the same time, Elder Tianqing and Ye Qiang had tried to stop Qinghan from attacking Ye Ron, but they’d failed. Due to Qinghan’s insane speed, as soon as they saw a flash of black shadow fly towards Ye Ron, it was already too late to stop it from happening.

As for Ye Jian, he had already sensed the ominous atmosphere around him, once Elder Tianqing had revealed the true identity of Qingyu – a Jade Spirit Body.

Although, almost none of them knew about Soul Sacrifice, most of them did know about the Jade Spirit Body. It was said that once a cultivator had integrated with a Jade Spirit Body, he would instantly enter into the Realm of the Emperor. However, people were less familiar with the special technique that belonged to such a holy body, which was known as Soul Sacrifice. In order to use this unique technique, the owner of this holy body had to burn off her soul and transfer the mysterious power inside her body to another person, who would temporarily be enabled to be as powerful as those in the Realm of the Emperor.

The Hahoe Mask left alone the Users, who had nothing to do with the attack on Pibtbull. He only attacked the guilty, since they wouldn’t be able to complain even if they were killed.
