Lord of All Realms - Chapter 1360: A Strange Dream[Updated at: 2021-01-14 16:15:17]
At the border of the Domain of Heaven Python.
Gupi, the Fiend abomination, quietly flew past an unknown realm, enveloped in multicolored toxic miasma.
As it did, every last low-grade spirit beast that remained in that realm died.
The spiritual Qi of Heaven and Earth was poisoned by the miasma. Even the structure of the realm started to undergo significant changes.
Fatally acidic and corrosive mists pervaded the air.
Gupi, the enormous dreadful being, flew away from the realm.
A very long time went by.
A spatial rift suddenly split open, and Feng Beiluo from the Heavenly Corpse Sect stepped into that heaven and earth, looking very much at ease.
One Heavenly Corpse after another flew out of the spatial rift behind him, wreathed in thick corpse auras.
Completely unaffected by the deadly toxins Gupi had left in the air, they charged off in different directions, as if to gather corpse power from the dead spirit beasts in order to strengthen themselves.
Yuan Jiuchuan, the Thunder Devil, arrived next to Feng Beiluo. Full of smiles, he said, “Lord, Gupi has entered the Domain of Heaven Python and started encroaching on its realms. The Fiends, Phantasms, and Demons have also launched a joint invasion of the domain, where they’ve sent out multiple grand monarchs and starships. A fierce battle may break out at any moment. What should we do?”
With a low chuckle, Feng Beiluo said, “What is it that you really want to know, Yuan Jiuchuan?”
The Thunder Devil cast his gaze down and said, “Lord, the strength Nie Tian displayed in the Realm of Fire Spirit was simply unbelievable.
“If he hadn’t been there, Pang Chicheng would have entered the God domain and gained control of the Four Manifestations Flame Soul Cauldron with the help of the things his father had left for him.”
“That only means that Pang Chicheng’s opportunity to enter the God domain has yet to come,” Feng Beiluo said.
“The sectmaster of the Nether Spirit Society sustained heavy injuries, and many of his evil spirits were devoured by five monsters that Nie Tian released.” Yuan Jiuchuan paid close attention to Feng Beiluo’s expression as he spoke. “Ren Yuanji from the Death Curse Sect even died at Nie Tian’s hands. Normally speaking, this should make Nie Tian our sworn enemy, but I...”
With these words, he gazed off in the direction where one of the Heavenly Corpses had left.
That Heavenly Corpse had been refined from the corpse of a Demon grand patriarch: Cardy.
Rumor had it that Cardy had been surrounded and killed by Nie Tian and his Saint domain subordinates in the Domain of Forbidden Heaven.
However, if that was the case, why had his body ended up in Feng Beiluo’s hands?
That made him suspect that Feng Beiluo was the one who had killed Cardy!
However, Cardy had been on a mission to storm the Domain of the Falling Stars to retake the dark stone and kill Nie Tian...
“Pang Chicheng wasn’t instructed to take that trip to the Realm of Fire Spirit,” Feng Beiluo said indifferently. “He asked you and the others to join him as a favor. It wasn’t a mission. Nie Tian being there was merely an accident. It was Pang Chicheng’s bad luck that he ran into him in the Realm of Fire Spirit.”
With a wry smile, Yuan Jiuchuan nodded and said, “Yeah, Pang Chicheng was unlucky...”
Then, after a short pause, he asked, “Lord, if I were to run into Nie Tian in the future... If I got into a conflict with Nie Tian, what should I do? As you know, given the speed at which I advance in my cultivation, it’ll only be a matter of time before I enter the God domain.
“There are some unresolved issues between me and Mo Qianfan from the Heavenly Thunder Sect.
“So my plan is to go after him as soon as I enter the God domain. Those thunder pools in his possession and the profound magics he has derived from the Thunder-devouring Whale will be of great help to me. I’m bent on taking them.
“The only thing that worries me is that Nie Tian might try to stop me.”
Then, with a sincere expression, he asked, “So what do you think I should do, Lord?”
After a moment of silence, Feng Beiluo said, “Mo Qianfan’s life won’t matter. As for Nie Tian, perhaps when you enter the God domain, he’ll become so strong that you’ll want to run upon seeing him.”
Yuan Jiuchuan’s eyes widened. “I really want to know whether there’s a special connection between us and Nie Tian.”
Feng Beiluo’s face split into a gruesome smile as he said, “You may have a slim chance at learning something in that regard after you enter the God domain. However, the sectmaster of the Nether Spirit Society won’t have any chance at doing so even if he enters the God domain.”
WHOOSH! WHOOSH! WHOOSH!
As they spoke, the Heavenly Corpses returned from different directions.
After examining them with his divine awareness, Feng Beiluo shook his head and said, “It’s a pity. If the Qi warriors and commoners in this realm had died in Gupi’s toxic miasma instead of having evacuated, my Heavenly Corpses would have come to much greater gains. Well, forget it. I’ll just follow Gupi and make as much out of it as I can.”
With these words, he entered the spatial rift, along with his Heavenly Corpses and Yuan Jiuchuan, who was still trying to understand the meaning of his words.
The Fiends had stopped following Gupi’s footsteps to every realm it plagued after it entered the Domain of Heaven Python.
They didn’t have the time and energy to turn every realm it plagued into heaven and earths that were fit for them to live and procreate in.
Even so, if those realms continued to transform under the influence of Gupi’s toxic miasma without any interference, they might turn into agreeable homes for the Fiends after several dozen millennia.
In the Realm of Shattered Earth.
Nie Qian, who was practicing cultivation, suddenly awoke from a dream and started sobbing.
Hearing her, Nie Donghai rushed over. Frowning, he said, “You’re a seasoned cultivator now. I can’t believe you’d still fall asleep during cultivation, not to mention awakening from bad dreams...”
He shook his head slightly, as if he, as a father, expected better of her. “You’re being surpassed by even some kids of our clan. If Nie Tian and Dong Li hadn’t provided you with all those precious materials, you wouldn’t even have entered the early Worldly realm. Do you know that Little Tian has entered the Void domain already?”
Not ashamed of herself, Nie Qian said, “Of course I’m not comparable to Little Tian.”
Looking at her, Nie Donghai pondered for a short while and asked, “So was it Little Jin again?”
Nie Qian nodded. “Yes, not only did I see her in my dream this time, but she talked to me. I even have a feeling that she’s very close.”
“She’s close?” Nie Donghai asked, looking deeply sad. “Little Tian said that she’s still alive. But if she is, why has she still not come to see us? Don’t tell me that so many years have passed, but she still hates me for not approving of her relationship with that man.
“I never never got to see that man. How was I supposed to show them support?”
“Don’t blame yourself, father.” Nie Qian tried to comfort him. “My younger sister told me in my dream that she doesn’t blame you for what happened. She only hasn’t come see us because the time isn’t right.”
Nie Donghai was taken aback. “If it was only a dream, why did you dream about her telling you that?”
Nie Qian seemed hesitant as she said, “I have a feeling that it wasn’t just a dream. Everything seemed so real. It’s as if she can see us. And she just communicated with me through the form of a dream. I think there’s some connection between me and her. When she’s close enough, she’ll be able to talk to me through dreams.”
Nie Donghai’s expression flickered with astonishment. “Are you serious?”
“There are many things in this world that can’t be explained,” Nie Qian said.
Then, after taking a pause to think, she added, “She also told me something, which I find a bit fuzzy now. She wanted me to warn Nie Tian against something or someone. I can’t remember what.”
“Think harder!” Nie Donghai said anxiously.
“Give me some time.”
