Chapter 65

Chapter 65 of 150 chapters

TN: I translated the power that a cultivator could get from breaking through a realm a few dozen chapters ago as “Superpower”, this sounded clunky and didn’t quite fit the meaning of the original term. From now on it will be changed to “Thaumaturgy”, which is closer in meaning to the original term 神通 , which essentially means “miracle power”


Gu Qing Shan stowed away the sword, clasping his fist: “Thank you for holding back”

Bai Hua Fairy stood up from her throne, suddenly said coldly: “You didn’t use your full strength”

Gu Qing Shan answered: “Because this humble one didn’t need to”

Bai Hua Fairy lightly floated until she stood across Gu Qing Shan, saying: “Ah? That’s interesting then”

Her eyes glowed a bit looking at Gu Qing Shan and said: “I’ll give you one chance, prove your words”

“How do I prove it?” Gu Qing Shan asked.

“Attack me with your full strength and I’ll be the judge” Bai Hua Fairy answered.

This is the strongest of the 3 Saints, even Gu Qing Shan at his prime couldn’t even scratch her.

Because of that, Gu Qing Shan didn’t bother saying useless swords, he only held his sword, pointing the tip at Bai Hua Fairy.

“Water Flow Severance!”

Gu Qing Shan shouted loudly as he thrust the sword forward.

On the steel sword, endless sword phantoms concentrated into one.

In the blink of an eye, all the sword phantoms flowed out like a tsunami.

The world became silent.


As soon as the blinding sword phantoms appeared from the tip, they also disappeared.

Unable to handle this strike’s power, the steel sword broke into metal chips and fell down in place, making a harmonious clanking sound.

Gu Qing Shan was stunned.

Bai Hua Fairy slightly shifted her body and was already on her throne again.

“This attack was very decent, if we were to consider your age, it truly is extraordinary” she commented.

Even though the strike wasn’t able to be released, with how high Bai Hua Fairy’s eyes are, she could easily tell Gu Qing Shan’s level of sword skills.

She suddenly felt a bit of love for talent.

“A sword cultivator without a sword cannot be called a sword cultivator, come and pick a sword, it’ll be to replace your broken sword” Bai Hua Fairy said.

Gu Qing Shan very honestly answered: “This sword was originally not mine, it belonged to the river’s ferryman, if your Eminence wish to repay it then please repay him”

Bai Hua Fairy unexpectedly frowned, her opinion of Gu Qing Shan changed a bit.

Then Gu Qing Shan once again said: “I sincerely hope that your Eminence would act to save them, as Gong Sun Zhi and Ning Yue Xi’s situation might not be too good”

Bai Hua Fairy swung her hand: “No need to hurry, they won’t die, even if they die I will be able to bring them back”

If she had said that much then there’s nothing else Gu Qing Shan can say.

If Bai Hua Fairy really have such an ability, then after Gong Sun Zhi died and revived, would my Quest be considered failed or success?

Gu Qing Shan felt very conflicted.

Bai Hua Fairy looked at Gu Qing Shan a bit then said: “You don’t need to worry too much, if I tell you to choose a sword, then just come and choose a sword”

A Saint’s words are the law, once said it will not be easily changed.

“Then, I’m grateful to your Eminence”

Gu Qing Shan could only clasp his hand and bowed.

Bai Hua Fairy swung her long sleeves, as five Longswords flew into the palace, neatly lined up in front of Gu Qing Shan.

Seeing them, Gu Qing Shan’s mood churned a bit.

As a sword cultivator, it’s been so long since he had seen a truly trustworthy sword.

As something that Bai Hua Fairy would keep, of course there wouldn’t be any that’s only good in appearance.

He walked forward, choosing his partner from now on very carefully.

Bai Hua Fairy lifted her face full of interest with her hand, her bare feet crossed on the ten thousand flower throne.

This youth had gone and studied the naming of sword styles, this type of thing that takes effort yet never bring about any results is too far-out, so no one has really done it before.

This type of person, which sword would he choose?

She kept silent and looked at the scene in front of her, waiting for the youth to pick.

Gu Qing Shan glanced over the 5 swords, then walked towards the leftmost one, pulling it out.

A ‘clang’ was heard and then Sword Will filled the air.

Based on their quality, weapons can be divided into 5 grades which are Sharp, Treasure, Spirit, Law and Dao.

This sword only needs to be held in hand to feel the overwhelming killing intent from it.

A sword that hold a will is extremely rare, it could already be considered a Law-grade weapon.

A sword like this is so very valuable, that it could drive the numerous sword cultivator of the land into a frenzy.

Gu Qing Shan sighed, then returned the sword into its sheath.

He then looked at the other swords.

“Hm, why didn’t you choose that one?” Bai Hua Fairy asked.

The sword that Gu Qing Shan had picked up first is a good sword without a doubt.

“The first reason is that it’s too valuable, with my cultivation, even if I use it, I can’t protect it” Gu Qing Shan answered.

“The second?” Bai Hua Fairy asked.

“The second reason is that the sword holds too much killing intent, it would affect my judgement when using the sword”

“But you once said, to hold a sword you only need a single thought, and that’s the thought to kill” Bai Hua Fairy still hasn’t let him go.

“Ah, but the thought to kill must be mine, not the sword’s” Gu Qing Shan replied, “I’ve not even thought about anything and it had already emitted killing intent, then would I be using it, or would it be using me? It’s very possible to become its slave, turned into a killing machine”

Bai Hua Fairy was silent and didn’t ask anymore.

In fact, the previous owner of this sword called himself the Demonic Human Sword Cultivator, who died because he had attracted a Tianma who devoured his soul.

The second sword was a deep red color, as it silently floated there you can feel an intense burning heat

When Gu Qing Shan held the sword and tried to infuse it with spirit energy, the sword let out a searing flame.

This would be a Fire-element sword, any sword cultivator that awaken Fire-element root that use it will increase their strength many times over.

The third sword was black without any shine, as it moved it remained silent and didn’t let out a single sound.

The fourth sword let out a soul-piercing shriek as you swung it, able to confuse the opponent’s mind.

The fifth sword was a bit long, it didn’t have a sheath and felt heavy in the hand, yet when he swung it, he felt it fit naturally.

As Gu Qing Shan tried to infuse it with spirit energy, the sword itself didn’t change, but you could instinctively feel a sense of steadiness.

Holding the sword, Gu Qing Shan suddenly felt a sense of safety.

Gu Qing Shan happily held the sword as he bowed to Bai Hua Fairy and said: “I wish to take this one”

The moment that she saw Gu Qing Shan took this sword, Bai Hua Fairy was holding her breath.

It was only when he chose the sword, only when he spoke did Bai Hua Fairy finally breathed out slowly.

“The swords before, why didn’t you choose them?” Bai Hua Fairy asked without changing her expression.

“The 2nd sword was suitable for Fire-element root cultivators, while my own spirit energy element hasn’t awakened, so it’s not for me”

“The 3rd sword is one used for sly sword style, it doesn’t suit my wind slash style”

“The 4th sword’s power was very decent, but as a sword cultivator, I believe what we pursue is sword arts, not relying on tricks”

Gu Qing Shan coolly explained himself.

Swords were originally the thing he felt most interested in, so whenever he’s asked, he would always speak with enthusiasm.

As Bai Hua Fairy heard that, she asked: “Then why did you choose the 5th sword? I can tell you that this sword was only added to round up the number, the weakest of the five ——–it’s not too late to change your choice”

Gu Qing Shan shook his head: “This sword fits me very well; I don’t need to change”

Bai Hua Fairy asked again: “It doesn’t have any characteristics, and it has never been used by anyone to fight against a foe, why do you like it so much?”

Gu Qing Shan checked his War God UI, confirming that the sword doesn’t have a single Skill on it, a clean slate.

But Gu Qing Shan could feel instinctively, for some reason, that he wouldn’t want to pass up on this sword no matter what.

With his dozen years of experience using swords, as he held this sword in hand, he could feel it as a part of his body, like a partner that understands everything there is to understand about him.

Gu Qing Shan hesitated for a bit, then answered, embarrassed: “The sword just feels right in my hand, I don’t feel like changing it”

As Bai Hua Fairy heard that, she felt a sense of nostalgia.

In her memory, the voice that’s been buried for numerous years was heard once again.

“Ling er, I’ve spent so much effort to find for you these ten swords, every single one of them is much stronger than the one you have, why do you still refuse?” (1)

The girl smiled and answered: “Maybe it’s because I chose it myself, this one just feels right”

She continued: “A sword is a companion for your whole life, if it doesn’t feel right, so what if it’s better? Right, you don’t need to come here so much anymore, especially the next few days, I ———“

‘am about to break through’, those words couldn’t be said, as the other person’s face has changed and shouted angrily.

“Hypocritical wench, since you don’t want an invitation but rather a punishment, I’ll give you one day to consider becoming my Dao companion, if your answer doesn’t satisfy me, I’ll destroy your whole sect!”

Then the man turned into the wind and left.

One day later, the few hundred people of her sect was all massacred, only the girl had survived because of the sect master’s protection, silently left.

Bai Hua Fairy bit her lip.

“This sword, was my sword from many years ago”, she looked at the youth below and softly said.

“Ah, then my apologies, I’ll choose another one then” Gu Qing Shan said.

He’s a bit sorrowful, accidentally choosing Her Eminence’s sword right away like that, he can only hope that she won’t get angry.

He still needs her help saving people after all.

“No need, this Saint has long gone on a different path, swords and such weapons are no longer necessary”

“If you feel that it fits your hand, that means it had also chosen you ——-use it, treat it well”

Bai Hua Fairy slowly spoke

“I’ll also give you the sheath”

From the air, she grabbed a sword sheath, looked at it for a moment before throwing it to him.

The sheath was simple and natural, black from top to bottom, as Gu Qing Shan received it, he also sheathed the sword.

“Thank you your Eminence” Gu Qing Shan said.

Bai Hua Fairy sat there silent for a while, then suddenly spoke again: “This sword’s name is Earth” (TN: the ground, not planet Earth)

“Earth?” Gu Qing Shan was surprised

“Yes, the Earth is able to hold all beings, nurture all living creatures, a miracle only accomplishable by the world’s law itself, and so this sword is the Earth sword

“The sword weighs 86,370,000 tons, which carries the Spirit Thaumaturgy ——I Am Heavy”

“I Am Heavy, means that the user of the sword would only feel a regular sword’s weight, all things in the world would also not feel its weight, only when facing an enemy, will they face the full power of 86,370,000 tons”

Bai Hua Fairy’s eyes looked into the distance, her mouth lifted into a sarcastic smirk as she said: “The Earth sword was passed down for 100,000 years in our sect, never used as a weapon to fight against an enemy, only a valuable treasure. The stories passed down was that it could be used to contact the Divinity after the Old Age, a sword intended to be used for ceremonial purposes”

“After 100 thousand years, our sect had already fallen in grace, and only each generation’s sect master would know about it. I was to be the next sect master, that’s why I had this sword. Unfortunately I made some bad friends when I was young, leading to the destruction of our already exhausted sect”
