Seeing the thicker and thicker tribulation thunder not far away, any cultivator should understand what was going to happen here.
The existence of that huge black shrine tower was strange enough in itself.
Now calamity clouds appeared, and the cultivators became more and more panicked.
Such panic even made them forget the restrictions in the forbidden area.
Finally someone couldn’t help but grit his teeth. He stared at Li Fenglan who was slowly sitting down in the distance and said, “How can you survive in this ghost place!”
Another person stared blankly at the front and said, “…and it’s Nine Nine Heavenly tribulation.”
Affected by the shrine tower, their condition was extremely poor. When the thunder struck, it would be difficult for to escape.
This time, the team was completely chaotic. Without waiting for Zhuang Zhixia to persuade them, someone tried to leave here on their swords.
However, how could a forbidden place of the sect allow ordinary disciples to leave with a sword?
The flying sword was only half a foot away from the ground, and the man fell heavily.
At the same time, that toffee-colored figure finally appeared in front of everyone.
It’s Mu Hantao!
She glanced coldly at the person who hadn’t got up from the ground, and said in a deep voice, “The Sect’s Forbidden Area is not a place where you can be unrestrained.”
Before the person could respond, Mu Hantao took off her jade comb from her hair.
In just a moment, the jade comb magnified countless times, and carried all those who were affected by the shrine tower and couldn’t move.
“After leaving the forbidden area, go to the law hall to receive punishment.” After saying this, Mu Hantao waved her sleeve, and the jade comb quickly rose up and flew out of the forbidden area.
Li Fuyue in his last life was an immortalization stage immortal, and crossing a tribulation was nothing new to him.
But this time, it was very different.
The first tribulation thunder rumbled down, but what followed was not the pain of reshaping tendons.
The scene in front of Li Fenglan’s eyes suddenly changed, and he suddenly arrived in a room that was almost impenetrable to light.
The deafening thunderclap disappeared unexpectedly.
“…Where is this place?”
Li Fenglan had survived many tribulations, but he had never encountered such a strange thing.
He found that “he” had disappeared, replaced by a cloud of blue mist.
Perhaps it was because he had died a long time ago, Li Fenglan was not very surprised.
He saw a little light ahead. After thinking for a while, the blue mist slowly moved towards the direction of the light.
Only when he got closer did he realize that the light came from a small window. And Li Fenglan saw through the window——in the distance, there was a white open space.
That was the square he had just walked through!
“It’s the shrine tower.” Li Fenglan immediately understood that the location he was in was the inside of the strange black giant tower just now.
And judging from this height, it should be the highest floor.
Before Li Fenglan remembered where this was, the time outside the window seemed to freeze.
But when he realized where he was, everything changed.
The scenery outside the window began to change rapidly with the four seasons.
And this cloud of green mist of himself repeatedly gathered and dispersed over and over again.
Li Fenglan’s consciousness suddenly became a little fuzzy, he couldn’t tell whether he was dreaming or if he was really on the shrine tower.
After the scenery outside the window repeated countless times, Li Fenglan finally heard a loud noise.
Right! Calamity lightning!!
At this moment, Li Fenglan finally came to his senses, he remembered that before he came here, he was clearly crossing the tribulation.
The scenery outside the window… the green mist that kept gathering and dispersing, at this moment, Li Fenglan felt as if he understood what he had just seen.
“It turns out that ‘Tanyi Pagoda’ really exists…” he muttered to himself.
——Tanyi Pagoda, also known as the “Soul Condensation Pagoda”, Li Fenglan only saw it in ancient books in his last life.
He originally thought that this thing only existed in theories. Unexpectedly, not only did it really exist, but it was even erected in the forbidden area of Tianmian Palace!
The most important thing was: what it condenses was its own soul.
What he “saw” just now was his soul, all the experiences he had experienced in this tower for thousands of years.
The souls that turn into powder and scatter in the world are like a few drops of water falling into the sea. Normally, no one could fish them out of the ocean.
But it’s okay for the Tanyi Pagoda to exist, after all, his existence was already beyond the way of heaven.
Li Fenglan’s soul was summoned back by the Tanyi Pagoda.
Over the course of more than a thousand years, it continued to disperse and condense again.
In the end, it took a full 1,200 years to reintegrate into one body.
After figuring this out, Li Fenglan finally opened his eyes, and the deafening noise of the calamity thunder became clear again.
He saw dense thunderbolts falling from the sky, striking his body as if without regard.
But Li Fenglan stood up slowly with a sword in hand against the power of Heavenly Tribulation.
He instinctively swung the long sword in his hand to fight against the calamity thunder.
At this moment, Li Fenglan should have no distractions, but the fact is——he was distracted.
He really didn’t expect that in the past thousand years, he never left Tianmian Palace at all!
He had always been in this Soul Condensation Tower, waiting for the moment of rebirth, day after day.
At that time, Li Fenglan’s spirit was still broken, so only a little bit of vague memory remained.
But these were enough to shock him.
Who was the one who resurrected himself? Why can he open this Soul Condensation Tower?
And what happened to the novel that he read called “Tianmian Daosheng”?
Li Fenglan, who has always had a stable Daoist mind, was now in a turmoil.
Crossing the tribulation was not a time to be distracted, even if Li Fenglan was bold and skilled, it would not work.
What Li Fenglan faced today was the most dangerous nine-nine thunder tribulation.
Although his soul was tempered, already reaching the highest level; Li Fenglan’s physical body was indeed only at the foundation establishment stage, and the broken spiritual vein were connected not long ago.
By the time Li Fenglan reacted, a tribulation thunder had hit his chest hard.
“Ahem…” Blood gushed out from the corner of Li Fenglan’s mouth.
It was only at this moment that he quickly regained his concentration, gritted his teeth and wiped away the blood from the corners of his mouth, and raised his sword to concentrate on dealing with this calamity.
He understood – nine-nine thunder calamity meant that he will suffer ninety-nine blows from heaven.
Even with an invincible sword intent, in the end, he could only resist.
At this moment, in Miguang mountain Li Fenglan’s room.
Ling Buyan, dressed in black, was sitting at a small table in the center of the room drinking tea.
Unlike in the past, there was no smile on the man’s face at this time.
He looked out through the window, and at the end of his line of sight was the dark red calamity clouds.
The room itself was extremely quiet, and after a while, there was a howl suddenly.
Hearing this sound, Ling Buyan couldn’t help lowering his head and lightly flicked the head of the little beast in his arms with his knuckles.
Cheng Huang glanced at Ling Buyan with some grievances, and after a while he couldn’t help but let out another “Woo”.
He just felt that his master was in danger, so he wanted to find him.
Unexpectedly, at the moment when he broke out of the window, Ling Buyan grabbed the back of his neck.
Now Cheng Huang was really wronged, no matter what he thought.
It could feel that although the man in black in front of him was a little violent towards him, he also had kindness towards his master.
So initially Cheng Huang thought that Ling Buyan wanted to take him to find the master.
But seeing that he hadn’t moved for a long time, Cheng Huang finally couldn’t help but remind him with a “woooo” in the man’s arms.
——Cheng Huang had always been a little afraid of Ling Buyan, so these few calls took a lot of courage.
Why won’t you go save master!
Naturally born ferocious beasts like Cheng Huang, who had not yet grown up, can’t understand people’s words.
But after lightly tapping its head a few times, Ling Buyan patiently explained to the little guy.
“Don’t bother Fenglan, he needs to go through this hurdle by himself.” Ling Buyan said softly while gently smoothing Cheng Huang’s fur.
“Huh?” Cheng Huang tilted his head, apparently he didn’t understand what Ling Buyan was saying.
Seeing this, Ling Buyan finally smiled. He looked at the calamity clouds outside the window and said, “It’s just nine nine…ah, no, it’s just two times of Nine Nine Heavenly tribulation. He can definitely handle it by himself.”
“Awwoo…” Cheng Huang didn’t understand, and he couldn’t get away from Ling Buyan after several attempts, so he could only lie down limply.
Also because he couldn’t understand Ling Buyan’s words, Cheng Huang ignored a very important message – two rounds of Nine Nine Heavenly tribulation.
The battle of the Nine Nine Heavenly Thunder Tribulation itself was the biggest of all the Heavenly Tribulations, not to mention Li Fenglan crossing it twice in a row.
This time Li Fenglan was crossing the tribulation in the forbidden area, so today almost all the people in the sect were watching the calamity clouds from afar.
They did not expect that even after the ninety-ninth tribulation thunder fell, the thick calamity clouds in the sky still did not dissipate.
Outside the forbidden area at this time, Zhuang Zhixia and the others also noticed this.
“Master, senior sister…is this the hundredth tribulation thunder?”
“I’ve never heard of such a situation before…”
“Is there a problem with the forbidden area?”
“It’s not that there is a problem with the forbidden area…” Zhuang Zhixia looked at the calamity clouds, shook her head and said softly, “It’s the second Nine Nine Heavenly tribulation.” “
Ah? The second time!”
A few months ago, Li Fenglan was just a little-known ordinary cultivator.
There were probably no more than ten others who knew him in the entire cultivation world.
But today, he was completely famous in the Three Realms.
After all, before Li Fenglan, no one had survived the Nine Nine Heavenly tribulation twice in a row.
Just as they were staying outside the forbidden area, a man in black suddenly appeared.
——The black Xiezhi robe, and the hairpin made of dead branches on the top of the head, the person who came here was Meng Linzhou, the law-abiding immortal of Tianmian Palace!
Right now, Zhuang Zhixia was staring at the calamity clouds in the distance, so she didn’t notice Meng Linzhou’s arrival.
Until the man spoke.
“The person who is crossing the tribulation inside is Li Fenglan?”
Meng Linzhou’s voice came through the gap between calamity thunders, and after hearing it, everyone turned to look at him.
Recognizing who it was, they froze for a moment, then quickly turned around and saluted: “Immortal Lord.”
Meng Linzhou, the Immortal Lord who holds the law, was the most common one seen by the ordinary disciples of the sect. He often had a straight face, a very difficult look to get along with, and looked very scary.
Seeing Meng Linzhou frowning, Zhuang Zhixia replied cautiously: “It’s him, Immortal Lord.”
“The second Nine-nine heavenly thunder Tribulation,” Meng Linzhou was silent for a while, then suddenly shook his head and said, “I wonder if his whole corpse will stay intact.”
His words frightened the surrounding disciples.
If Li Fenglan heard it himself, he would probably give this rebel disciple another slap in the face—cursing me again, cursing me again!
“Oh, forget it…” After being silent for a while, Meng Linzhou suddenly said such a sentence. Judging from his tone, it seemed that he had made some decisions.
The few people around were all curious about what Meng Linzhou meant, but due to the status of the Immortal Lord, no one dared to ask out their curiosity.
Little did they know that what Meng Linzhou was thinking at this moment was that Li Fenglan had met him once and was an admirer of his master. After a while of lightning strikes, he can reluctantly go in and collect his body.
Thinking of this, Meng Linzhou was moved by himself.
The second Nine-Nine Heavenly Thunder Tribulation was even more dangerous than the previous one.
Calamity thunder struck down densely, leaving no time for Li Fenglan to catch his breath.
Whether it’s these ordinary disciples at the gate of the forbidden area, or Meng Linzhou, no one has ever seen such a thunder tribulation.
No one knows what was going on with Li Fenglan in the center of the forbidden area.
Or, was he still alive?
Cheng Huang and Li Fenglan signed a spirit beast contract.
As the thunder of the forbidden land fell again, Cheng Huang, who had been quietly in Ling Buyan’s arms just now, finally couldn’t help but struggle again.
It can feel that the owner’s current situation was very dangerous.
“Woooooo!” Cheng Huang finally overcame his instinct of being afraid of Ling Buyan, and yelled loudly, expressing his dissatisfaction.
Seeing that Ling Buyan did not move, it even took a deep breath and bit the man hard.
Ling Buyan was clearly bitten by Cheng Huang, but he didn’t look angry.
He stretched out his finger again, sighed softly and said to Cheng Huang’s head, “You are an ancient beast, but you can only bite people’s fingers? You really embarrass your seniors.”
“Wooo” He was very aggressive, but after Ling Buyan stretched out his hand and flicked his forehead, he immediately backed down.
It stretched out two paws to cover its head, and gave Ling Buyan a very resentful look.
You bully me while master is away!
Unexpectedly, at this time, Ling Buyan slowly put Cheng Huang down.
He glanced at the calamity clouds outside and said: “It’s time.”
After finishing speaking, Ling Buyan walked out the door.
Seeing that he was going out, Cheng Huang quickly followed him.
But before reaching the door, Cheng Huang found himself locked in place by Ling Buyan, unable to move.
It hurts, it really hurts.
The two consecutive Nine-Nine Heavenly Tribulations caused Li Fenglan’s spiritual veins to ache as if they had been scorched by fire.
At the moment when the 198th thunder fell, accompanied by the burst of golden light, Li Fenglan finally couldn’t help but spit out a big mouthful of blood.
At this moment, Li Fenglan was covered in blood, and he tightly grasped the hilt of the sword with both hands, and used it to support himself, half kneeling on the ground.
Even though he was supported by the sword, his hands were still trembling unbelievably, and the white veil had fallen to nowhere.
At this time, Li Fenglan’s black hair, which was neatly tied behind his head, was scattered on his shoulders.
He was like a misty plum that bloomed in the snowy area thousands of years ago, with the color of blood, the whole person was even more beautiful and dazzling.
The dark calamity clouds dissipated in an instant, but in the blink of an eye, the sun had already poured down from the sky.
The rumbling thunder just now was like a dream.
At the moment when the thunder tribulation ended, Li Fenglan finally lost his strength and fell heavily.
And at the moment when he fell to the ground, there was only one word in Li Fenglan’s mind: Nascent soul.
This time he directly passed the Golden Core stage and became a real Nascent Soul cultivator.
To be precise, Nascent Soul, perfect Stage.
This was something unheard of in the cultivation world before.
The long sword came out of his hand, and the world before Li Fenglan’s eyes also became blurred.
But the expected pain did not appear. At the moment when Li Fenglan was about to fall to the ground, a pair of hands actually firmly took him into his arms.
Before completely losing consciousness, Li Fenglan stretched out his hand subconsciously, trying to cover his face with his torn sleeve.
But before he raised his hand, Li Fenglan heard the person holding him whisper, “Fenglan, don’t be afraid, it’s me.”
“Master?” He closed his eyes and asked vaguely.
The moment he heard the man’s familiar voice, Li Fenglan finally lost all his strength.
His hand slowly fell down, and Ling Buyan couldn’t help but hug the person in his arms tightly, and after a short pause, he walked out of the forbidden area.
When Meng Linzhou came to the center of the forbidden area, there was no one there.
“Li Fenglan?” He looked around and couldn’t help calling the other person’s name loudly.
“Are you here–“
“You won’t really have dissipated into ashes, right…”
When Meng Linzhou came to the forbidden area, he was indeed collecting Li Fenglan’s body out of kindness as he thought just now.
But seeing this empty place, his mood became complicated.
Meng Linzhou didn’t realize it himself. At some point, he bit his lips tightly, and the hand hanging by his side also trembled slightly.
Now Meng Linzhou had reached the ascension stage and crossed tribulations many times. He had survived countless calamities, and he had seen countless people cross tribulations.
There were successes, and of course there were failures.
He thought he wouldn’t care about such things, but now Meng Linzhou was in a rare panic.
Even the scene in front of him reminded him of thousands of years ago…the day when Li Fuyue died.
Everyone in the cultivation world knew that Meng Linzhou’s relationship with his Master was mediocre.
But when Li Fuyue was trapped in snowy Meizhou, the cultivators actually locked Meng Linzhou in the Sect’s prison to prevent him from sabotaging the plan.
This prison was located halfway up the mountain. There was a small window in the prison, and one can see the snow-covered Meizhou in the distance.
By observing the scenery outside the window and the changes of day and night, Meng Linzhou knew that he had been locked up there for ten full days.
Ten days was nothing to a cultivator, but Meng Linzhou, who was restricted in activities, was still a little irritable.
While playing with the sword tassel, he thought disdainfully: Those people in the cultivation world are really boring, they locked me here, do they think I will save Li Fuyue?
Oh, he didn’t have that leisurely thought.
After a while, Meng Linzhou suddenly looked out the window and he said to himself: “Li Fuyue is really good.”
As a rebellious young man, Meng Linzhou had never said nice words to “Li Fuyue” to his face before and even repeatedly provoked Li Fuyue.
But now, when no one was around, he praised his Master sincerely.
——If he become rebellious, at most he would leave Tianmian Palace secretly, and then make some troubles for his Master along the way.
But Li Fuyue was different, his rebellion directly shocked the Three Realms.
From this perspective, Li Fuyue was really amazing.
Just as Meng Linzhou was playing with his sword tassel boringly, a little change finally occurred outside the window.
He saw a huge bronze bell rising slowly. The bell rang like a reminder, and along with the golden light, it spread to every corner of the sect.
“Yaozheng Bell?” Meng Linzhou stood up suddenly, and he stared at the Yaozheng Bell with wide eyes.
Li Fuyue had extremely strict requirements on his disciple, besides swordsmanship, he also taught him a lot of knowledge about formations.
Although Meng Linzhou had always been tired of studying, this time he could tell at a glance that the Yaozheng bell in the distance appeared as the core of the Fushen Array.
At this moment, his heart suddenly fell hard.
Although he didn’t want to admit it, he once expressed disdain for the title of “the number one person in the cultivation world”.
But before seeing Yaozheng bell rising, Meng Linzhou never thought that his omnipotent master would be associated with the word “lost”.
“What’s going on…” Meng Linzhou muttered to himself.
How could Li Fuyue be trapped by the Fushen Array?
He… how could he lose?
The entire Tianmian Palace and the cultivation world had already gotten used to Li Fuyue’s strength.
This was especially true for Meng Linzhou who had never flown out of Li Fuyue’s palm since he was a child.
In the past five years, Meng Linzhou only treated Li Fenglan as a joke when people in the cultivation world chased and tried to kill Li Fenglan.
Because he never thought in his heart that Li Fuyue was also a human being, and he was also a mortal.
Until this moment, Meng Linzhou finally woke up.
Huge uneasiness enveloped his whole body.
Meng Linzhou finally tried to draw his sword, trying to break out of the prison.
But how could the cultivation world, which had been prepared for a long time, let Meng Linzhou out?
After an unknown amount of time, accompanied by the dazzling golden light in the distance, Meng Linzhou finally fell to his knees slowly.
His casual cultivator friend once said: Meng Linzhou has grown an elm head, unable to be enlightened.
At the moment when he knelt down on the ground, Meng Linzhou just instinctively felt that he seemed to have lost something very important.
It wasn’t until thousands of years later that he realized what that thing was…
He was completely lost, the only person in the world who would break into a tide of ferocious beasts and rescue him.
