Chapter 1358: The Deal with the Pavilion
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The space before Mu Chen changed. In the next instant, his vision became bright and the space that he was standing in turned into a vast starry sky. Several shooting stars flew across the sky, leaving a colorful trail behind them.
Mu Chen knew that high level Super Powers, cultivation techniques, and Sovereign Celestial Bodies were hidden among the shooting stars. He looked at the void that was in front of him and seemed baffled.
Earlier on, he had sensed that the Pavilion was summoning him, which was the reason that he had followed the fluctuations and entered the Pavilion once again. The Pavilion usually hid itself in the Ancient Celestial Palace, and only those who had an affinity with it would be received by it to obtain opportunities.
However, Mu Chen had entered the Pavilion before, so he wondered why he was being summoned by it. Just as Mu Chen was feeling doubtful, the space before him twisted and an ancient text appeared in front of him.
The text read: There is a Super Power in you that I do not recognize.
When Mu Chen saw the text, he was stunned. The Pavilion was interested in a Super Power that he possessed!
However, as the Pavilion had collected so many Supreme Super Powers from the Ancient Celestial Palace, it had extremely high expectations. If it had taken a liking to it, the Super Power that Mu Chen possessed must be unique.
After thinking this through, Mu Chen could only think of one Super Power that the Pavilion did not possess…
“Is it the Eight Budur…” he wondered aloud.
Very soon, Mu Chen was confident that he knew the reason. He raised his brows and asked with a smile, “What do you intend to do?”
The Pavilion was unique. It possessed sagacity and desired to collect different Super Powers.
Collect. The text before Mu Chen changed to reveal that one singular word.
Mu Chen pondered this for a while, then said, “If you wish to collect it, I am fine with that. However, you have to pay a price for it. After all, the Eight Budur is one of the 36 Rare Super Powers in The Great Thousand World, and its value is comparable to the Qi into Trinity, which you should be already be aware of.”
Mu Chen was careful to not turn down the Pavilion’s request, as he knew that the essence of the Eight Budur was not its cultivation method. It was the Budur Beads that had been refined by the Ancestor Budur. Also, the material that had been used to refine the Budur Beads was a Demon Emperor.
Currently, in The Great Thousand Word, there were not many Demon Emperors for them to use to refine the Budur Beads. Moreover, the failure rate was so high, one could lose all of the other materials that he had painstakingly put together.
As such, Mu Chen was not against the idea of keeping the Eight Budur in the Pavilion. After all, he was now in charge of the Ancient Celestial Palace, which included the Pavilion. From certain aspects, it was likened to his taking it from the left pocket and putting it into the right pocket.
However, the strange thing about the Pavilion was that, even though Mu Chen was the Master of the Ancient Celestial Palace, he was unable to control the Pavilion. Thus, if Mu Chen could use the cultivation method of the Eight Budur to exchange it for a valuable item from the Pavilion, he would be happy to do that.
When the Pavilion heard what Mu Chen had said, it became silent. Mu Chen simply smiled and did not pressure it in any way. After all, he knew that it would not be easy for the Pavilion to take the Eight Budur away from him.
After keeping silent for a while, the ancient text before Mu Chen started to twist and reconstruct. It then read: According to its value, you have two options. Your first option is to exchange it with another Rare Super Power…
Rare Super Power? Mu Chen’s eyes lit up. He had speculated correctly. There were indeed Rare Super Powers in the Pavilion.
However, he was not sure if it was one of the 36 Rare Super Powers or just an ordinary Rare Super Power. If it was one of the 36 Rare Super Powers, it would be a great gain for him!
Considering this, he voiced his doubt, asking, “Rare… Or ordinary?”
The Pavilion immediately replied, “Ordinary.”
The corner of Mu Chen’s mouth twitched as he scolded the Pavilion in his heart…
It has the audacity to exchange the Eight Budur with an ordinary Rare Super Power? Could it have known that the essence of the Eight Budur is not in its cultivation method?
“What is the second option?” After pondering for a while, Mu Chen asked.
Although it was just an ordinary Rare Super Power, the offer was still attractive. However, since he had just obtained the Eight Budur, he was not very keen on accepting it.
The text reformed to read: The second option is to exchange it for the second level of understanding in the Qi into Trinity.
When Mu Chen heard this, his gaze froze. The second level of understanding in the Qi into Trinity?
When Mu Chen had first cultivated the Qi into Trinity, he already knew that there were three levels, which were the Tri-Division Level, the Tri-Union Level, and the Tri-God Level.
After practicing day and night, Mu Chen’s Qi into Trinity was still at the first level, which was the Tri-Division Level. As such, he was still clueless about the second level, which was the Tri-Union Level.
The Qi into Trinity was the most important means that Mu Chen now possessed. With his increased strength, it would become increasingly more important to him in the future.
As such, if he could bring the Qi into Trinity up to the next level, it would be an attractive deal for him. Regardless, he was curious to find out the power of the second level of the Qi into Trinity.
After running through these thoughts in his mind, Mu Chen quickly came to a decision. He lifted up his head to look at the void that was before him, then nodded and said, “I will go for the second option!”
Instead of wasting time to cultivate some other Rare Super Power, he might as well spend his time perfecting his Qi into Trinity. When Mu Chen nodded his head, the space around him changed.
The starry sky disappeared and golden leaves filled the ground. A huge ancient tree quietly stood before him.
Several strange runes were imprinted on the ancient tree. The runes moved slowly and gave one the feeling that it possessed an almost human-like intelligence. Spiritual light gathered under the ancient tree, and it turned into a tall figure.
“Elder?” Mu Chen shouted in amazement as he looked at the familiar figure. It was the Heavenly Emperor who he had met previously!
The Heavenly Emperor should have disappeared from the world! How is it possible for him to appear in this place now?
As Mu Chen was looking baffled, the Heavenly Emperor lifted up his head and smiled at him. He then waved at Mu Chen and gestured for him to join him under the ancient tree.
The Heavenly Emperor then sat cross-legged and pointed at the ground next to him, signaling Mu Chen to sit down as well. He then formed a seal with one hand, and there was a spatial fluctuation around him.
Two figures appeared at that moment. The first was a Heavenly Emperor in a black robe, while the second was another Heavenly Emperor in a white robe. Apparently, this was the Qi into Trinity.
When Mu Chen saw this, many thoughts ran through his mind. The Heavenly Emperor that was before him was not the Heavenly Emperor that he had seen before.
He figured that it must be the replica that the Heavenly Emperor had left behind when he had cultivated the Qi into Trinity. The replica must have been kept in the Pavilion!
The black and white Heavenly Emperors sat cross-legged on the ground and stretched out their palms. They then slowly shut their eyes.
The Heavenly Emperors nodded at Mu Chen, and after hesitating for a while, Mu Chen formed a seal with one hand, and the black and white Mu Chens appeared. They then sat before the black and white Heavenly Emperors.
Six figures sat under the golden ancient tree, and the three Mu Chens stretched out their palms and pressed against the palms of the three Heavenly Emperors.
When their palms touched each other, a thunderous sound blasted in Mu Chen’s head. Chanting sounds were heard, while a vast amount of information flowed into his head like a swift current.
Several images came along with the information. Among these were the images of the Heavenly Emperor when he was cultivating. Every image contained the Heavenly Emperor’s appreciation of the cultivation.
The moment Mu Chen applied his thoughts to it, he immersed himself completely into it. The bottlenecks that he had come across previously suddenly disappeared. This was because he had been enlightened as to what had caused them.
Mu Chen knew how precious this state was, and he completely shut down all of his senses in order to immerse himself totally, so that he could come to a full understanding of the Qi into Trinity. He made use of this opportunity to study the second level of the Qi into Trinity particularly…
Externally, Mu Chen and the black and white Mu Chens started to glow with spiritual light. The spiritual light of the three of them entwined with one another and formed rays of light that bound them together…
North Region, at the Purple Cloud Sect.
In the main hall, Zi Tianbei and the other two elders turned pale as a purple light circled around them and purple fog rose from their heads. After a long while, a palm suddenly emerged from behind them.
“Clan Leader!” Zi Tianbei and the other two elders hastily turned around.
As they did, they saw a man standing behind them. His face was fair and he had one hand behind his back.
He was robed in purple and his eyes were purple. A horrifying oppression exuded from him and caused the entire space to surge.
The man looked gloomy as he snorted and said, “What an overbearing seal.”
When Zi Tianbei and the other two elders heard this, they were shocked. One of them asked, “Are you unable to break the seal, Clan Leader?”
Is the Estate Master of the Mu Estate so powerful that even their Clan Leader is unable to break the seal?
Sage Zi Yun looked calm. He then said flatly, “This person is very good at creating seals. If I was to break it by force, you would be hurt. Fortunately, the seal will only be effective for a year. After that, it will disappear.”
Zi Tianbei and the other two elders turned bitter when they heard this. This would mean that they would be likened unto Lower Earthly Sovereigns within a year!
This youth was too horrifying! If they had known about this earlier, they would not have gone to the Mu Estate…
When Sage Zi Yun saw their expressions, he frowned and said, “We have underestimated the Mu Estate. I never expected such a powerful person to exist in a small place like the North Territory.”
Cold light flashed across Zi Tianbei’s eyes as he said, “Clan Leader, the Estate Master is too much. He did not show any regard for our Purple Cloud Sect. Not only has he crushed our Purple Edict, I have heard that they are trying to vie for the North Region Overlord so that they can be on par with us!”
Sage Zi Yun squinted his eyes and shook his head. He then exclaimed, “This guy must be daydreaming!”
Currently, the North Region was being ruled by the Purple Cloud Sect, Thunder Mountain, and the Golden Eagle Mansion. If the Mu Estate wanted to vie for the position of overlord, they would have to take away some of their territories in order to do so. This was obviously something that none of these three forces wanted to see it happen!
When Sage Zi Yun thought of this possibility, a purple light glittered in his eyes. He then said, “Since this chap from the Mu Estate is so ambitious, I will send him an invitation to the North Region Assembly. I would like to see how powerful he is, such that he dares to snatch the food from our plates!”
The situation in the North Region had been fixed, and if the Mu Estate thought that they could change the situation and have a hand in it, Sage Zi Yun would let the young Estate Master know that he was being too naïve and far too ambitious!
