263 The Immortal Ancient Shed Skin, Using a Realm as a Sacrifice
“Wanming died just like that?”
A ball of wriggling human hair kept twisting and turning as if it were alive and condensed into a human shape. Afterward, a voice came from the “hair man.”
“Fellow Daoist Changfa, can’t you add an extra layer of skin every time you go out?” The Desolate Immortal looked at the “hair man” and frowned.
If the human-skinned Incarnation stage lord cultivator Wanming and the Incarnation stage “hair man” Changfa were compared, the Desolate Immortal would undoubtedly prefer Wanming because Wanming had many bodies.
Moreover, all of Wanming’s bodies were top-notch in terms of appearance.
However, Changfa was different.
Although Changfa would put on a layer of painted skin to cover it, in reality, Changfa would often reveal his true body to do things, even if he had already reincarnated and could have a body of flesh and blood at any time.
However, no matter how much the Desolate Immortal disliked Changfa, she could only endure it.
It was because Wanming was dead.
He died inexplicably!
Changfa said with a smile, “It looks like the two from the Tianling Sect don’t want Wanming to live!” He had a grudge against Wanming. If it wasn’t for the benefits of the contract, he would have fallen out with Wanming long ago.
At this moment, Wanming was dead, and his interests weren’t affected. It was a good thing for Changfa.
The Desolate Immortal’s eyes revealed a thoughtful look. She agreed with Changfa’s opinion, but she didn’t express it directly. Instead, she asked him a question, “Fellow Daoist Changfa, why do you say that?”
Changfa said casually, “Isn’t it obvious? The three of us are one. Whether it’s you or me, we can’t intend to kill Wanming. Moreover, we can’t kill him. The two from the Tianling Sect were different. Other than the Incarnation stage lord cultivator who had never appeared, the one called Fang Jinyu had captured Wanming and had enough time to make a move.”
The Desolate Immortal said with a solemn expression, “Wanming’s death isn’t good news for the two of us. Although you and I both have pseudo-immortal treasures, we are no match for the two people from the Tianling Sect.”
The Desolate Immortal was confident that she could defeat Fang Jinyu, but she wasn’t confident that she could defeat the Incarnation stage lord cultivator hiding in the Tianling Sect.
“Desolate Immortal, you didn’t call me here just to say this, right?”
Changfa asked directly.
Counting the deaths of ten thousand lives, among the three of them, the Desolate Immortal was the most crafty, so she couldn’t shoot without thinking.
“Half of Wanming’s immortal’s ancient shed skin is already in my hands. Why don’t we work together and summon the immortal’s ancient shed skin back to the netherworld? Presumably, with an immortal world as an offering, the netherworld will welcome our return.” The Desolate Immortal stated her plan.
Originally, even the Desolate Immortal didn’t want to return to the netherworld.
It was because she could call herself Desolate Immortal in the Nine Desolations and become the master of tens of thousands of cultivators.
Once she returned to the netherworld, not only would she have to use the pseudo-immortal treasure carefully, but she would also have to give up the immortal’s ancient shed skins. As for her reputation and power in the Nine Desolations, that was even more impossible.
One had to know that the three of them had only obtained the recognition and followers of one group of creatures in the desolate forbidden land by stepping into the Incarnation stage. A few of the desolate forbidden land’s creatures that ranked 9 in the Nascent Soul stage didn’t even bother with them.
They were already in such a situation in the Nine Desolations. Once they returned to the netherworld, even if they had already acknowledged them, they would still scatter like birds and beasts, let alone those who did not acknowledge them.
It wasn’t only because there were more Incarnation stage cultivators in the netherworld. Any random City of Vain Deaths might have dozens of Incarnation stage cultivators hidden there.
It was also because, in the netherworld, everyone was scheming with each other.
In the netherworld, betrayal, and rebellion were common occurrences. For example, the servants of the three surnames, who controlled their lord to order the vassals, were considered loyal and brave in the netherworld!
At this moment, hearing the Desolate Immortal’s words, Changfa was stunned.
The Desolate Immortal’s words shocked him.
However, after thinking about it carefully for a moment, Changfa nodded and said, “I have the legs and the pelvises from the immortal’s ancient shed skins.”
The Desolate Immortal said, “I have the head of the immortal’s ancient shed skins. Wanming obtained the upper body of the immortal’s ancient shed skins, but he still lacks arms.”
“Those two arms should have fallen into the hands of those fellows. However, it’s unrealistic for them to give it to us.” Changfa shook his head. Ever since the three of them broke through the Incarnation stage, those who were stuck at rank 9 in the Nascent Soul stage and refused to break through had all gone into hiding.
Even if they went to look for it, they couldn’t find it.
“It’s fine. It’s enough to barely piece together the immortal’s ancient shed skins. Moreover, the immortal’s ancient shed skins had a spirit, so they might run out on their own.”
When the Desolate Immortal said it, her gaze turned dangerous.
She had long run out of patience with those who were hiding. If it weren’t for the fact that those few people were too good at hiding, she would have found them and killed them all.
Afterward, she began to prepare.
She had always been swift and decisive in her work, and she didn’t like to be sloppy. Moreover, Wanming’s bizarre death this time could be considered to have scared her.
“The fortune-telling technique is truly wondrous.”
When Fang Jinyu returned from the Lightning Territory, he knew that the human-skinned Incarnation stage lord cultivator had mysteriously disappeared. He wasn’t surprised by it.
It was because when Fang Jinyu returned the fate to the other party that day, he secretly did something.
When the time was right, the human-skinned Incarnation stage lord cultivator would think that he had sensed his great opportunity on a whim, and he would then rush to a “border” region in the Nine Desolations.
Fang Jinyu had already set up a secret technique there. Once the human-skinned Incarnation stage lord cultivator reached it, it would trigger the secret technique of “Mother Qing Fu, please protect me.”
The secret technique was initially used to expel the power that didn’t belong to this world from the body.
However, after cultivating to a certain level, it would become a power that could expel the existences that didn’t belong to this world!
Fang Jinyu said, “Even if I can’t kill that ghost who has reincarnated in the world beyond the Nine Desolations, it’ll be enough for him to lose a few layers of skin.”
Fang Jinyu didn’t have a connection between the Desolate Immortal, Changfa, and Wanming. Furthermore, the Desolate Immortal and Changfa didn’t spread the news of Wanming’s death. Therefore, Fang Jinyu didn’t know that the human-skinned Incarnation stage lord cultivator was already dead. He only thought that he had been expelled from the Nine Desolations.
Afterward, Fang Jinyu adjusted his breathing and prepared to transform into lightning again and enter the Lightning Territory.
If Fang Jinyu wanted to use the perfect incarnation technique to break through the Incarnation stage, he would have to travel through at least half of the 8,000 miles of Lightning Territories. Fang Jinyu hadn’t even finished traveling through 1,000 miles of the Lightning Territories, let alone 4,000.
Moreover, if Fang Jinyu wanted to use the perfect incarnation technique to break through, he would have to go through all 8,000 miles of the Lightning Territories.
It was because the attributes of some Lightning Territories overlapped.
If Fang Jinyu only traveled 4,000 times, it was very likely that he would miss out on some “attributes.”
However, before Fang Jinyu could transform into lightning, the entire Nine Desolations shook for no reason, and then the sky instantly darkened.
Heaven and earth instantly lost their light.
