Painting Of The Nine Immortals Chapter 784In these recent months, all the different normal topics that are discussed in Yuezhou have disappeared. All those dazzling powerhouses were no longer being brought up by anyone.
This was all because of the doing of this insane cultivator named Ling Xian.
All of his heaven-defying doings have circulated throughout Yuezhou and startled everyone.
He killed the Shang Qing Sect's Leader of Alchemy, stole the Soaring Key, and even though he was under the attack of various Shang Qing Sect officials, he still managed to escape easily.
He fought against the Leader of Cultivation and killed so many cultivators as a completion leveled cultivator. Then, he killed numerous Heaven's Favorites that were from the different forces, which includes elders. He truly was undefeatable completion!
At the very end, he paved a path using his bloody sword and slaughtered more than 100 powerhouses.
Amongst them were five original leveled powerhouses of the beginning stage!
These events, one after another, which one of them wasn't heaven-defying? Naturally, the entire Yuezhou was astonished!
But being astonished is just being astonished, being scared is just being scared. Nobody from any of the different forces has given up. First, the Soaring Key was extremely tempting. Second, they were more than willing to keep on sending soldiers because of all the different descendants and elders who died.

One can claim that other than a selective few forces, the majority of the forces in Yuezhou have formed rivalry against Ling Xian and were determined to kill him.
Therefore, when the news of him entering the Forest of Heavenly Trees spread, most of the different forces all moved at this piece of news and rushed to the Forest of Heavenly Trees.
Though everyone knew very well that it was a prohibited place full of fatal poisons, they were all prominent forces and of course, they had some antidotes and other resources.
Therefore, after they prepared some antidotes, all the original leveled cultivators from these forces in Yuezhou all gathered at the Forest of Heavenly Trees, wanting to kill Ling Xian.
However, the poison in this forest was far too terrifying. Every time someone entered, that someone never exited. This forced many forces to pause this operation.
Especially since so many forces have tried but did not achieve great results, everyone's headache deepened.
They have realized that the poison inside the Forest of Heavenly Trees was far too intense. Even though they had various equipment and medicine with them, they were useless.
In the end, various forces were troubled. They decided to gather and discuss what they could do.
The Sun had just rose and the leader of many forces gathered. They were discussing what they could do to enter the Forest of Heavenly Trees and kill Ling Xian.
"That guy truly is heaven-defying. As a completion level cultivator, he keeps on killing those of the original level. What can we do about that!"
"Yeah, I am so old in age and I have seen all kinds of talents. Yet I have never met anyone that insane."
"There are records in ancient books that those at the undefeatable realm of the completion level can fight against those in the beginning stage of the original level. In history, there are also numerous people how defied their cultivation level and killed those in the original level. However, that man surpassed two levels of cultivation and killed the cultivation leader of the Shang Qing Sect. How heaven-defying."
Everyone chimed in. Their first sentences weren't how they planned to go against Ling Xian, but were complimenting him instead. This meant even as his enemy, they couldn't help but exclaim.
Luckily, some people remained clear-headed.
That was the Shang Qing Sect's Supreme Headmaster, Ji Qian Bai.
Ignoring the fact that Ling Xian killed two original leveled powerhouses and has stolen four treasures, his entire face and honor have been ruined by Ling Xian.
Therefore, he naturally hated Ling Xian. Why would he compliment him?
"Everyone, we have gathered here today to discuss how we can kill Ling Xian. We are not here to compliment him." Ji Qian Bai hissed coldly, silencing the group.
Many people chuckled but very quickly, that turned into coldness. Their words went from praising him to figuring out how to kill him.
They all pitched in their two cents and discussed what they could do to enter the Forest of Heavenly Trees. Honestly, there wasn't much to discuss. If they wanted to kill Ling Xian, they would have to enter the Forest of Heavenly Trees.
But in order to enter that poisonous place, they needed a treasure that could block out the poison there. The difficult part right now was that they didn't have anything like that.
"I do have something at the Shang Qing Sect."
Ji Qian Bai said softly, "This treasure is called the Pearl of a Thousand Poison. I believe everyone here has heard of it."
Immediately, everyone's expression changed and they revealed joyous smiles.
"Who hasn't heard of that! Not only is it an insane treasure that can attack, but it can also dissolve thousands of types of poisons. It truly is a valuable treasure."
"You are the Shang Qing Sect after all. You have so many resources, even a treasure like that."
"Haha, Leader Ji you should've spoken up earlier. If we knew we had that object, we wouldn't be wasting time here. Let's use it right now and destroy this old forest."
"Now's not the time."
As he listened to everyone's argument, Ji Qian Bai continued seriously, "I originally thought a normal treasure would've sufficed, therefore I didn't bring the Pearl of a Thousand Poison. Just now, I have asked someone to go fetch it. It will take around 10 days before he returns."
"Perfect. Then in 10 days, Ling Xian will die." A grey-haired elder gritted through his teeth, "He killed more than 10 elders from my Bei Dou House. He deserves to die!"
Everyone was appearing angry and vile. But they weren't thinking about the fact that their people died because of their greed to steal another man's treasure.
"Then it's decided. When the time comes, I will use the Pearl to protect everyone and everyone can help me take down Ling Xian."
Ji Qian Bai softly grinned and he was being extremely proud of himself, "As for how we should divide the Soaring Key, we will fight about that after we kill Ling Xian. What do you say?"
Hearing this, everyone went silent. They all glanced at Ji Qian Bai in an unusual way.
A few of the smart ones have already guessed Ji Qian Bai's plan.
However, those people did not step out and argue. After all, everyone had the same goal. They needed to kill Ling Xian and get the Soaring Key.
Therefore, even though they knew something odd was going on, they had to borrow the power from the Pearl of a Thousand Poison.
"Since nobody is speaking out, then I will take it you all accept." Ji Qian Bai softly grinned. The way he stared at the silhouette inside the heavenly forest was full of killer's intent.
"In 10 days… I will kill that man."
Just as Ji Qian Bai and everyone could see Ling Xian. Similarly, the Ling Xian, who was sitting in a lotus position on an ancient tree branch, could see them as well.
Even before these people started camping out there, Ling Xian already sensed them. He watched them attempting to enter the forest and watched their people die. He watched them pondering deeply for a way to somehow enter this place.
He also saw the way those people gathered. Though he wasn't sure what they were doing, he knew they were discussing ways to fight against him.
This made his heart drop down further and he felt an immense amount of pressure.
"They are all smiling. It looks like they have found a way to enter the forest." Ling Xian mumbled. He couldn't help but feel grief.
It was a critical point during his breakthrough right now. Though he could afford to not be completely focused, he cannot move at all. In other words, if those powerhouses enter now, he has no way of counter attacking.
Out there are animals who want to shred him to pieces. In here the breakthrough was going on and disallowed him to leave. Because of all these factors, no matter how strong his mentality was, he remained sad.
"Is this really… as far as I can go?"
