Painting Of The Nine Immortals Chapter 785On top of the ancient tree, Ling Xian softly sighed and sorrow filled his brows.
The situation hasn't worsened just yet. Because at the very least, right now, Ji Qian Bai and they have yet to enter the forest. Therefore, he didn't exactly feel hopeless. Instead, he was more determined.
"I haven't achieved my dream just yet. I cannot just sit and wait for death."
Ling Xian's expression was serious. He hurriedly manipulated the energy inside his body and more aggressively attacked the barrier between the completion level and the original level.
Sadly, this barrier was far too sturdy. Despite his strikes, it didn't even crack a little bit.
However, this was all within his expectations. Because during the lost century, he broke through to the original level once. And thus he knew how difficult this was going to be.
At least in a short period of time, there was no way he was going to breakthrough.
"I have to hurry. Or else I might not be able to escape death." Ling Xian's began to concentrate as he continued to manipulate his Qi and used all he's got to strike the barrier.
Just like that, time passed on little by little.
Ten days later, the person from the Shang Qing returned on time. What arrived on time with him was the treasure that could defend against all poisons inside the Forest of Heavenly Trees.
This indicated that Ji Qian Bai and everyone could now enter the forest. In other words, Ling Xian was in danger!
"Haha, Ling Xian, do you recognize this item?"
Ji Qian Bai laughed out loud and he held up the black pearl in his fist. "This treasure can defend against thousands of poisons and is the nemesis of poison. You are definitely going to die now!"
Everyone else also had faces full of smiles and excitement. It was obvious that they were confident that Ling Xian was going to die.
Even Ling Xian himself thought so.

He has heard of the Pearl of a Thousand Poison. Therefore, he knew that the Forest of Heavenly Trees can no longer protect him.
In other words, he was going to die.
"I am going to die?"
Ling Xian bitterly chuckled, "In the end, I couldn't defy Heaven."
Then, he exhaled softly. His handsome face did not show any fear. There was merely unwillingness.
He was unwilling to die like this. He was even more unwilling to die in the hand of someone like Ji Qian Bai!
But no matter how unwilling he was, he didn't have any other option. The group of people out there were all powerhouses. Though fortunate for him, there was nobody of the fifth level, there were more than 20 original leveled powerhouses.
Out of those, many were of the advanced stage of the original level, like Ji Qian Bai!
Therefore, despite the lack of fifth leveled powerhouse, there was no way Ling Xian could escape this place easily. Plus, he was at a critical point in his breakthrough and he couldn't even move.
If he moves, then before those people could react, he would self-destruct.
Out there, there was a ring of enemies. In here, he needed to breakthrough. Ling Xian, right now, has truly fallen into a hopeless situation!
But even now, he did not give up. He continued to attack the barrier using his spiritual energy.
He hasn't completed his dream yet. He has a lot of businesses to take care of. How could he die right now?
"Haha, I know you are unwilling to die, but so what?" Ji Qian Bai held onto the Pearl of a Thousand Poison. It was vibrating with a mysterious force that absorbed the poison inside the Forest of Heavenly Trees.
Instantly, the black fog inside the forest began to disappear at a rate that was visible to the naked eyes. Based on what was happening on, before long, the fog would disappear without a trace.
This made Ling Xian's heart drop lower and lower. The look in his eyes darkened somewhat.
"Are you feeling hopeless? Are you feeling scared?" Ji Qian Bai laughed arrogantly. The way he looked at Ling Xian was full of sarcasm and mockery.
Everyone else was the same. The look on their faces was like they were watching a cat catching a mouse.
"It looks like it will be difficult for me to escape."
Ling Xian softly sighed. He knew very well that even if he moves, he would be no opponent to the group out there. After all, there were more than 20 original leveled powerhouses out there. Other than a fifth leveled cultivator, who can stop them all?
On top of that, he couldn't even move right now. He was no different than a dead man.
Just as he silently exclaimed, the poison inside the Forest of Heavenly Trees continued to be absorbed by the Pearl of a Thousand Poison. There was now not a single trace of poison.
This made Ji Qian Bai and others laugh even louder. Their laughter filled the air in all directions – it was full of excitement and mockery.
They advanced slowly towards Ling Xian. Their at ease steps were like Ling Xian was already within their grasp and they could kill him easily.
Based on what was happening, Ling Xian truly was under their control. Even he, himself, did not think he could survive this.
"Ling Xian, you killed two original leveled cultivators from the Shang Qing Sect and you stole four treasures, making the Shang Qing Sect lose face. Today, I am going to make you pay for all of that." Ji Qian Bai smiled in disdain. His killer's intent intensified after every step.
Those people reacted the same way. They all hated Ling Xian. Plus, the Soaring Key was extremely tempting. So naturally, they wanted to kill him.
"Ji Qian Bia, you dare to speak like that?"
Ling Xian coldly snickered. Though he was in a helpless situation right now, he showed not even the slightest fear. He continued, "I wonder which shameless person burned the bridge after crossing it and repaid my graciousness with violence."
Ji Qian Bai was furious and he smiled darkly. "Blame yourself for being too naïve. There is no trust inside the cultivation community. Before treasures, everyone can be thrown out the window!"
"Don't judge the Taoism world with your vile view. There are many people who don't keep their words, but there are even more people who stay true to their words," Ling Xian said calmly.
"So what? The strong ones fight against the weak. I am the victor of today's battle." Ji Qian Bai carried with him a victorious smile and he acted like a prideful controller. He snickered, "Ling Xian, let me send you on your way."
As he spoke, killer's intent shot through the cloud above!
At the same time, the other original leveled cultivators all unleashed their killer's intent. Instantly, heaven and earth turned pitiful!
The entire Forest of Heavenly Trees turned cold and chilling, sending a shudder down everyone's spine.
Ling Xian's heart turned cold as well. He knew then that his journey was over.
"Master, Immortals, sorry for letting you down."
Ling Xian softly sighed. Everyone reviews their life when they are near death. Therefore, he remembered the several real immortals inside the Painting of the Nine Immortals. He also remembered all the people he involved himself with these years.
Lin Tian Xiang, Gong Suo Xin, Huang Jiu Ge, Yu Xun Zhen, Bai Xiao Qi, Yan Ning Zhi, and all the other beauties flashed across his mind.
Mo Qing Fu, Sun Ze Hao, the Demon, Hong Chen Jun Zhu and his other friends also flashed across his mind.
In the end, his mind rested on Lin Qing Yi.
"Qing Yi… I am afraid that I will never see you again."
Ling Xian bitterly smiled. Then, his expression turned determined.
Even if he has to die, he refused to die in the hands of these shameless people!
Therefore, he slowly and forcefully stood up. However, using his strength right now broke the bones in over half of his body.
Fresh blood dyed-through his white robe and made his heart drop even further.
This made Ji Qian Bai and them laugh even louder. Their voices were full of mockery and killer's intent.
"Haha, even standing up is difficult for you now. Ling Xian, you are now a handicap!"
Ji Qian Bai laughed loudly. He then walked over in giant steps, "let me personally send you on your way."
After he spoke, he lifted his right hand and tried to kill Ling Xian with one slap!
Just as his horrifying right hand was about to land, a loud and crisp noise arose from afar. The sound was long, steady, and piercing.
At the same time, an extremely chilling statement arose, shaking up all nine levels of heaven and all ten levels of hell.
"If you dare to touch a hair of his, I will destroy your entire Sect and curse all your descendants."
