Everlasting Immortal Firmament - Book 5: Chapter 99: Go Dao Mountain Manor
Book 5: Chapter 99: Go Dao Mountain Manor
The Reincarnation King screamed miserably, turned into fragments, and vanished into the clouds.
“Your Majesty, the Reincarnation King is extremely familiar with the Human Path Secret Realm. Why did you not keep him around to interrogate? Perhaps there are other ways to rescue Chen Xianer?” Bing Ji asked.
Gu Hai shook his head. “Other ways? We don’t need that. The Reincarnation King could have used the Mortal Soul Register to destroy Xianer at any time. Although he looked cowardly, we did not want to risk that.”
“Yes!” Bing Ji nodded.
Gu Hai walked to the small blue ball Chen Xianer turned into. Some anger and frustration flashed in his eyes.
I had already seen Xianer, but things turned out like this? I should have killed the Reincarnation King sooner.
Gu Hai gingerly picked up Chen Xianer’s primitive body. He carefully extended his hand and caressed it, but he did not dare to try to wake her up. All he could do was carefully put it away.
Then, Gu Hai turned his head to look at the small blue ball Bodhisattva Zi Zhu turned into. Then, he reached out and squeezed it hard.
Buzz! The little blue ball seemed extremely tough; it did not shatter.
Even the Samādhi True Flame could not destroy it earlier. Naturally, Gu Hai would not put in any pointless work.
Gu Hai snorted coldly and tossed aside Bodhisattva Zi Zhu’s soul ball.
Then, he cautiously picked up the Mortal Soul Register.
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
The Mortal Soul Register trembled slightly. Unfortunately, Gu Hai could not use it. However, he could not just leave it behind, so he carefully put it away.
“Let’s go,” Gu Hai said, feeling depressed.
“Yes!” Bing Ji nodded and followed behind Gu Hai. She peeked at him and bit her lip. However, she did not say anything, just quietly followed behind.
The two walked out of Reincarnation City slowly. At the city gates, they saw some soldiers and magistrates.
“Hurry! Quickly leave!”
“He killed the Reincarnation King! Run quickly!”
The souls scattered and fled in horror, only daring to look at Gu Hai and Bing Ji from a distance.
Reincarnation City devolved into chaos. Word of the death of the Reincarnation King immediately spread everywhere, but no one planned to take revenge for him. Countless souls rushed into the city, wanting to loot it of its treasures.
Perhaps there were some valuable ones, but Gu Hai did not care. After all, aside from the Mortal Soul Register, that Reincarnation King had nothing worth taking out. What could there be in his treasury?
Furthermore, Old Mister Guan Qi had left behind some information. Gu Hai was more interested in that.
Everywhere he went, no soul dared to block him.
In a stretch of snowy mountains in the Human Path Secret Realm:
As the divine light was overly eye-catching, the Grand Mohist found herself a cloak and wore it as she traveled to the snowy mountains. The moment she entered the snowy mountain region, a group of soldiers rushed over.
“This is a restricted area. Under the Reincarnation King’s orders, no one is permitted to approach!” the soldiers shouted.
The Grand Mohist pulled her hood back, revealing the divine light.
The soldiers felt slightly startled. Then, they said respectfully, “Greetings, Sage. Might we ask where the sage comes from?”
“The Myriad Age Daoist Sect,” the Grand Mohist replied indifferently.
“Myriad Age Daoist Sect Sage, we have been rude!” The soldiers immediately knelt.
“Did any soul come here one thousand years ago?” the Grand Mohist asked indifferently.
“Yes. It was Old Mister Guan Qi. The guards from two terms ago saw him. He went to the entrance, and the guards tried to stop him. Then, he left,” the guards reported respectfully.
“Oh? He left? Looks like he had already entered,” the Grand Mohist remarked, her voice sinking.
“Ah?” This comment slightly startled the soldiers.
“Alright. Continue blocking the other souls,” the Grand Mohist said.
“Yes!” the soldiers answered.
Then, the Grand Mohist entered alone.
Despite trudging through the thick snow, the Grand Mohist moved exceptionally quickly, spanning five kilometers with each step as she headed into the snowy mountains.
As the Grand Mohist walked deeper into the snowy mountains, a cat’s cry suddenly came from the depths.
“Oh no! The seal is loose. That beast is about to come out!” The Grand Mohist’s expression changed.
The Grand Mohist suddenly increased her pace, rushing into the depths of the snowy mountains.
Meow! The cat’s cry grew louder.
As the cat’s cry rang out, the snowy mountains trembled.
Meow! Meow! Meow!
Avalanches fell all over the vast snowy mountains due to the tremors.
The Grand Mohist felt incredibly anxious as she continued deeper.
She could see the distant Reincarnation City from the snowy mountains.
Fiery light suddenly soared into the sky in Reincarnation City’s direction, and loud reports rang out in the distance.
The Grand Mohist paused for a moment as she turned her head to look. Then, she frowned. “Something happened in Reincarnation City? Is it Gu Hai? Humph! Bodhisattva Zi Zhu is indeed trash.”
However, the cat cries in the snowy mountains worried the Grand Mohist more. She ignored Reincarnation City and continued into the snowy mountains.
Gu Hai and Bing Ji left Reincarnation City, rushing in the direction indicated by the map that Old Mister Guan Qi left behind.
When cloaked, the two did not stand out.
As the two forged on, their surroundings heated up.
This Human Path Secret Realm seemed to contain the various terrains and weather of the mortal world. Different regions had different environments. The region Gu Hai and Bing Ji entered was hot.
The temperature kept increasing. Many souls in the surroundings were unwilling to approach as though afraid the heat would hurt them.
“Your Majesty, there seem to be many volcanoes in the area.” Bing Ji frowned as she looked around.
Some volcanic craters emitted thick smoke.
“We will arrive soon. It is right in front,” Gu Hai said.
The two were rushing towards the volcanoes when a group of soul soldiers suddenly blocked them.
“Halt! This is the Go Dao Mountain Manor, an important, privately owned location. No one is permitted to approach!” a skinny soul said coldly.
“An important, privately owned location?” Gu Hai said.
“That’s right. The Reincarnation King has transferred this land, the Go Dao Mountain Manor, to my clan. My clan welcomes only Go Dao experts. No one else is permitted to approach,” the skinny soul said coldly.
“Go Dao experts?” Bing Ji raised her eyebrows.
“It looks like there are people who understood Old Mister Guan Qi’s Go puzzle.” Gu Hai narrowed his eyes.
“Huh? What did you say?” That skinny soul’s expression changed.
“This humble one has a rough understanding of the Go Dao. I saw Old Mister Guan Qi’s Go puzzle in Reincarnation City, so I made a special trip here,” Gu Hai said with a smile.
“Oh? You are a Go Dao expert? Sorry for the earlier treatment. This way, please.” The skinny soul immediately changed his expression.
Gu Hai stared at that skinny ghost for a while.
“Many Go Dao experts have already gathered in my Go Dao Mountain Manor. Naturally, you can hold exchanges with them after entering my Go Dao Mountain Manor. At the same time, you can study Old Mister Guan Qi’s Go puzzle.” The skinny soul smiled.
Bing Ji looked at Gu Hai, and Gu Hai nodded.
The two followed the soldiers into the Go Dao Mountain Manor.
There were no spirit stones here, so they could not lay any ritual arrays. However, they could use natural objects to veil the inside. Special trees, planted in special patterns, formed a miasma like a hallucination ritual array.
The skinny soul led Gu Hai and Bing Ji in. Soon, they arrived at a volcanic crater.
“Oh? This is your Go Dao Mountain Manor?” Gu Hai looked at the volcanic crater before him. He suddenly looked at that skinny soul coldly.
“Push those two into the volcano!” the skinny soul ordered with a ferocious expression.
“Yes!” The soldiers immediately charged over.
“Holding this area by force and murdering the souls that understood Old Mister Guan Qi’s Go puzzle so that you can monopolize the secret? Hah! This Go Dao Mountain Manor is a killing mountain manor, right?” Gu Hai sneered.
“Humph! It’s too late for you to realize it! Hurry up!” the skinny soul called out.
The soldiers charged over, but Bing Ji made her move before they arrived before Gu Hai.
Bing Ji froze the soldiers, then blew them up, reducing them to soul fragments that soared into the sky.
“What?” That skinny soul’s expression changed.
“Will you come over by yourself, or do I have to make you?” Bing Ji said coldly.
The skinny soul’s expression changed as he took something out.
What looked like a flare shot into the sky.
“Hahahahaha! To think that you dared to resist? I have already informed the manor lord. You can forget about leaving. Unless the Reincarnation King makes a move, no one can save you!” the skinny soul laughed maniacally as he moved back.
“The Reincarnation King? Are you talking about the Reincarnation King who holds this Mortal Soul Register?” Gu Hai asked indifferently.
As Gu Hai spoke, he took out the Mortal Soul Register.
“Huh? The Mortal Soul Register? How?! Why is it in your hands?” The skinny soul’s expression changed.
“I killed the Reincarnation King that you speak of two days ago,” Gu Hai said indifferently.
“Huh?” The skinny soul could not react immediately.
The Reincarnation King is the strongest person in this world. With the Mortal Soul Register in hand, he can kill anyone he wants. How could he have died?
“That’s impossible! That’s impossible! How could the Reincarnation King die?! He is the king of fate; who could kill him?” the skinny soul exclaimed.
At this moment, many souls rushed over from a distance.
“Who sent the distress signal? To think there are people causing trouble in our Go Dao Mountain Manor. How reckless!” Many souls rushed over noisily from a distance.
These souls held weapons, brandishing them with malevolent expressions.
As they rushed over, the skinny soul continuously retreated in fear.
“Ninth Young Master, what happened?”
“Is it them? To think that they dare to cause trouble at my Go Dao Mountain Manor?”
“Ninth Young Master, don’t be afraid. I’ll kill them!”
These souls shouted furiously.
“Don’t! Don’t attack! Wait!” Ninth Young Master called out as his expression changed dramatically.

“Ninth Young Master, why are you stopping us?” the souls asked coldly.
Ninth Young Master felt very flustered as he stopped everyone.
“Milord, pardon me. This humble one was overwhelmed by temptation earlier. I’m sorry, Milord. Please be magnanimous and spare me!” Ninth Young Master pleaded anxiously with Gu Hai.
“Ninth Young Master, what are you doing?” the other souls asked in confusion.
“They…they have killed the Reincarnation King. Don’t move. Do not engage!” Ninth Young Master said anxiously.
“Ah?” The other souls appeared skeptical at first. Then, they saw the Mortal Soul Register in Gu Hai’s hand, and their expressions changed dramatically.
Gu Hai did not say anything until the souls all showed fear and cowardice. “Call out your Go Dao Mountain Manor’s manor lord!”
