TN: Bai Hua = hundred flowers

The reputation of the 3 Saints being the strongest isn’t just for show.

In the past life, from an objective ranking of the two world’s powers, a unanimous conclusion was reached.

———players were weaker than the cultivation world cultivators, while cultivators were weaker than demons.

Partly because players were limited by the astronomical amount of Experience Points needed, no one was able to reach Sainted realm up until the very end.

And the demons were more numerous, even though no single demon could even hope to rival any of the 3 Saints, if they were surrounded by a bunch of demons that were also Sainted realm, even the 3 Saints can only retreat.

Overall, the 10 years of the Apocalypse was 10 years of humanity slowly dying out.

Even though Gu Qing Shan was once a Great Sword Saint, even though he has already killed over millions of demons, but he knows very well just how frightening demons are, and he knows how powerful the Saints are.

If you don’t count number and only look at individual strength, pretty much no demon can fight one-on-one with any Saint and win.

So how can he meet a Saint?

How does he convince a Saint to believe his words?

If he has time to slowly make plan it out, Gu Qing Shan is confident he’ll be able to do it.

But now he’s in a rush, as Gong Sun Zhi will die in only half a day.

Gu Qing Shan breathed in, composed himself and forced himself to think rationally.

——— Xuanyuan Tianzun, Great Monk of Resentment, Bai Hua Fairy. (1)

These three Saints that are known across the land, throughout their lives they left numerous legends and tales, out of all of them, what can he use?

Xuanyuan Tianzun likes to travel the land and sky, he practically can’t be found by normal means, so even if Gu Qing Shan have all the time to prepare he wouldn’t be able to reach him.

Xuanyuan Tianzun is a no-go.

Great Monk of Resentment lives at North Mountain’s Lingye monastery, he’s in constant meditation in pursuit of Dao and normally does not receive guests.

Only in early springtime every year that Great Monk of Resentment open the altar to teach the ways of Buddha to the world.

It’s not impossible to meet the Great Monk at other times in the year, but Gu Qing Shan definitely does not have the capabilities to do so.

There was one year that the Great Monk of Resentment went to Thousand Swords Sect to personally hold a lecture, the sect master of Thousand Swords Sect had used over a hundred million spirit stones to build an altar, in which he used Immortal Jade to craft a statue of Buddha as payment for the lecture.

The Great Monk of Resentment is also a no-go.

Then his only choice left is Bai Hua Fairy.

Gu Qing Shan sighed.

If he has enough time, he’d rather travel the world to seek out Xuanyuan Tianzun, or build up enough reputation and spirit stone to seek a meeting with the Great Monk of Resentment just once, than to ask Bai Hua Fairy for help.

Bai Hua Fairy is terrifyingly strong, at the same time she’s incredibly difficult to please.

At the time when she died, she alone killed over 30 Sainted demons, and the whole demon army was practically pushed back thousands of miles.

Everyone said that she must’ve already reached the grand peak of Sainted realm, only missing that single final step to advance to the next realm, reaching a never-heard realm.

In front of Bai Hua Fairy, any mistake you make is fatal.

Every Saint have over ten thousand methods to torture, to make someone know their place.

But Xuanyuan Tianzun doesn’t have interest in such things, and the Great Monk of Resentment wants to correct your ways more than he does torture you.

There’s only Bai Hua Fairy, whose personality is so hard to grasp that anything can happen.

She once used her Divine Skill to do a certain thing that shocked everyone of both worlds.

And it was only until she had died that everyone found out what she did.

Everybody ——–including all the players, could only look at the matter speechlessly.

He already knew what had happened, so he does have a chance.

After that, to meet Bai Hua Fairy, you must first gain her interest.

Gu Qing Shan was silent for a bit.

Seems like the only choice is to attempt the Bai Hua list!

Bai Hua Fairy had created her own country, and her own sect called Bai Hua Sect.

She’s unlike Xuanyuan Tianzu who likes to travel, also unlike the Great Monk of Resentment, who sits in meditation all year long.

She’s always at Bai Hua Palace in Bai Hua Immortal Country, tending her flowers and herbs, occasionally when she wants to, she’ll put out a Bai Hua list.

To meet Bai Hua Fairy, you have to attempt a Bai Hua list, and successfully solve the puzzle on it.

Bai Hua lists are all sorts of random, including every subject imaginable. Each and every Bai Hua list was created by Bai Hua Fairy herself, which includes all the things she takes an interest in.

Anyone that solve a Bai Hua list is provided a single chance to meet Bai Hua Fairy, and request one thing of Bai Hua Fairy.

That’s not all, if you can meet her standard, you even have a chance to join Bai Hua Sect.

However, it’s only a chance.

While it’s called a sect, there are so few people in Bai Hua Sect that you can count them on one hand.

The only reason why they’re recognized as a sect at all is solely because of Bai Hua Fairy.

Bai Hua Fairy is famously known for treasuring her disciples.

In the last few dozen years, the amount of people that want to join Bai Hua Sect are as numerous as the clouds in the sky, but no one has succeeded even once.

Occasionally, some people are lucky enough to solve the puzzle on a Bai Hua list, but after their request is fulfilled, they’re rejected from entering for no apparent reason.

No one understands why.

To Gu Qing Shan, this isn’t much of a problem, as he only wants to request Bai Hua Fairy to save Gong Sun Zhi and Ning Yue Xi.

Yes, attempting a Bai Hua list is really the only chance for him to meet the Saint!

He has to move now!

Gu Qing Shan quickly made his decision and said: “Leng Tian Xing, I need you to help me with one thing”

“Go ahead and ask, my life was saved by you anyways” Leng Tian Xing answered.

After escaping death together, Leng Tian Xing’s air of detachment and coldness had reduced quite a bit, there was even a hint of respect in his eyes.

A qi training realm cultivator, surviving a sea of demon, just how skilled must you be!

Just before, even though Gu Qing Shan could keep going in front, he chose to switch places with him, taking the heavy duty of protecting the back.

If he doesn’t even know to befriend such a character, then the position of Yao Guang Sect’s direct disciple is wasted on Leng Tian Xing.

Gu Qing Shan said: “I want to attempt a Bai Hua list”

Leng Tian Xing immediately answered: “Good, I’ll help you”

Gu Qing Shan asked him back: “You won’t ask why?”

“The General already told us to hide and preserve our lives, that being the case, I can take this chance to also attempt a Bai Hua list, because that’s the only way I can be saved” Leng Tian Xing answered.

“Why?” Gu Qing Shan asked.

Leng Tian Xing thought for a bit, then stood up and started to undress.

Gu Qing Shan was stunned, asked again with a low voice: “What are you doing?”

Yao Guang Sect is known to be both open and extravagant, could it be he has some sort of STD because of that?

Gu Qing Shan clenched his fist tightly.

Leng Tian Xing said: “Not only do you understand formations, you’re also well-versed with so many other things, so I want you to help me look at something”

Saying that, he had already stripped down to nothing, revealing his chest.

Leng Tian Xing pointed at his chest and said: “If you can help me with this problem, you will have my eternal gratitude”

On his chest was a colorful spider creature.

This spider has eight legs, all of which were deeply embedded in Leng Tian Xing’s heart, only sticking the head outside.

When the spider was revealed, as it saw the two people looking at it, it growled a bit anxiously.

It moved slightly, the legs gripped a bit tighter.

Leng Tian Xing appear to be in pain, quickly dressed himself again to cover the spider from sight.

It wasn’t until later that he was back to normal.

He looked at Gu Qing Shan and asked: “So? Do you know what this is?”

Gu Qing Shan’s face showed many emotions, first there was nostalgia, then anger, hatred, and finally, pity.


(1) Xuanyuan Tianzun: lit. greatest seeker of the origin. Tianzun is a title that carries a notion of great respect, as only a person who stands at the top can bear the title.

Bai Hua Fairy: lit. Hundred flowers fairy. “Fairy” isn’t used to describe the little creatures in the woods, but rather a title for a female cultivator, its literal meaning would be “a girl so beautiful she must be from heaven”
