Immortal Path To Heaven Chapter 778
In a refined and quiet little courtyard on Mount Wuzhi, a white-haired elder and 3 beautiful ladies were settled down here.
Although they received the best hospitality, they were not allowed to leave the courtyard. Fortunately, the 3 ladies were neither obstinate nor self-willed. They took precautions against each other, but they still got along well and threw off their airs in front of the old man to serve him like his juniors or daughters.
They were naturally Old Craftsman, Ni Yinghong, Bai Shixue, and Wu Hanning, who had come to the Spiritual Realm.
Since they were new here in the legendary Spiritual Realm, they felt rather uneasy. In particular, when they noticed that an ordinary guard outside the courtyard was a Spiritualist, they gave up on the thought of escaping.
Their cultivation bases were not notable, but the 3 ladies were rare beauties. Not to mention if they could get out of the strictly guarded place, even if they did, they might not end up well.
Therefore, they had been staying in the courtyard for several days as they quietly waited for their fate.
Old Craftsman sat leisurely on a rattan chair. As the gentle sunlight shone on his body, he felt warm and comfortable.
He could not help but sigh when he turned to look at the 3 ladies.
In terms of the time that they had been getting along with each other, Old Craftsman was unquestionably closest to Ni Yinghong. Nonetheless, humans were not plants, hence one could not be unfeeling. The old man thought that Bai Shixue and Wu Hanning were also intelligent, frank, and approachable. While the ladies fawned over him on purpose, he could not despise them even when he knew they were doing it with a purpose.
Old Craftsman shook his head and decided to let the young fellow solve the troubling problems himself.
The 3 ladies were sitting on the other side of the courtyard at the moment. No matter what they were thinking, at the very least, they appeared to be getting along harmoniously.
Bai Shixue stopped looking into the distance and asked, "These people in the Spiritual Realm are weird. Since they brought us here, why are they putting us under house arrest?"
Ni Yinghong furrowed her beautiful eyebrows and asked, "Elder Sister Wu, I suppose you can tell us now about the message that Senior Wu passed on to you, right?."
She had asked this many times, but Wu Hanning would give an excuse every time. Ni Yinghong naturally would not argue with the princess over this but now that several days had passed, they seemed to have been forgotten, hence she could not help but have a change of thought.
Wu Hanning sighed after some thought. "Fine, since were already in the Spiritual Realm, theres no need for me to keep it a secret from you."
Bai Shixue and Ni Yinghong looked at each other and thought, You shouldve told us long ago. Even so, due to Wu Hannings prestige as Her Royal Highness, they would not easily offend her unless they had no choice.
"Patriarch sent me a message saying that Master Ou has gained a firm foothold in the Spiritual Realm and wants his closed ones to be brought here," Wu Hanning explained in a deep voice. Her eyes flickered as she added, "Apart from that, Master Ou also needs a trustable proxy here."
A luster could be seen in Bai Shixues eyes as she finally understood why Wu Hongxi picked her this time.
She was the young pavilion master from the Yi Pavilion in the lower realm, where she had control over countless resources, but the lower realm was the lower realm and could not be mentioned on equal terms with the Spiritual Realm.
Throughout their few days in the Spiritual Realm, even though they were constrained in this courtyard, the herbs and flowers here could easily astound Bai Shixue. On top of that, the Spiritual Realm was so abundant in the universes spiritual power that it was enjoyable.
Bai Shixue seemed to have nothing at the moment, but she had decided to pave a path of her own in this new universe.
Even if she was barehanded, she would work hard to not have any regrets.
Nevertheless, Bai Shixue would not decline help unreasonably if she could borrow Ou Yangmings power.
"Younger Sister Wu, since the old masters confident, why is he nowhere to be seen yet? Is there an unforeseen change?" Bai Shixue questioned.
"Thats everything that Patriarch told me. As for the rest, Im as clueless as the 2 of you." Wu Hanning smiled bitterly and sighed. "But were currently on Danzhous Mount Wuzhi in the Spiritual Realm. This is the head of the Humans Nine Great Sects so if anything happens, we should be able to find out quickly.
Ever since Wu Hanning entered the Spiritual Realm, she had cast aside her identity as a princess because she knew her title as the Wu familys princess was probably less significant than that of a local commoner.
At this point, the 3 ladies were already treating each other as sisters.
Just as they were discussing softly and making guesses, the courtyards entrance was opened by itself.
The opened door not only attracted their attention, but Old Craftsman, who was sunbathing on the side, could not help but turn to look too.
Throughout their days of being put under house arrest here, while they were provided with the necessities, they were more or less anxious. In fact, being in a disaster might make them feel better than not knowing what the future holds for them.
A white-haired elder stood proudly outside the door. He was simply standing there, but he seemed like a fearsome and insurmountable mountain.
Putting aside Old Craftsman, who did not practice martial arts, the 3 ladies felt chills when they saw the elder. They could not tell the persons cultivation base, but they just felt like they were as tiny as ants in front of him.
This persons incredibly, exceptionally powerful!
The elder looked coldly at them but did not suppress them with his aura. He spoke sternly, "Im Tiandao the Venerable One. Welcome to Mount Wuzhi."
"V-Venerable One" Wu Hanning widened her eyes and gasped.
Ni Yinghong and Bai Shixue turned slightly pale too. They had tried their best to guess that the elder had an extremely high status, but they did not expect this at all.
A Venerable Onehe was a Venerable One!
Even in the Spiritual Realm, Venerable Ones were the most top-notch beings. From the ladies perspectives, given that they were martial artists from the lower realm, they would already be shown a lot of respect even if a Spiritualist were to come to meet them.
Who knew, a Venerable One came.
The ladies would not suspect Tiandao the Venerable One at all because nobody in the Spiritual Realm would have the guts to pretend to be a Venerable One. Moreover, Tiandao the Venerable One carried an indescribable momentum that could not be doubted at all.
Old Craftsman blinked but was very puzzled.
His experience and that of the 3 ladies were Heaven and Earth apart, thus he did not know about Venerable Ones. Despite that, judging from the ladies expression, he could guess that the elder was an important figure that must not be underestimated.
He cleared his throat and greeted the elder, "Uhm Elder Brother."
Tiandao the Venerable One was stunned. He looked strangely at Old Craftsman.
Did he just address me as an older brother? This ordinary old man Im old enough to become his great grandfather, and yet he addressed me as an older brother
Wu Hanning and the other ladies turned pale. The princess immediately explained, "Sir Venerable One, this old man doesnt practice martial arts, so he doesnt know" Before she could even finish, Tiandao the Venerable One waved his hand. An invisible power oppressed her, forcing her to swallow her words.
The 3 ladies looked hopeless because the Venerable One did not seem to be a friendly person. They wondered, Will Old Craftsman be killed? But if anything happens to him, how are we going to explain to Ou Yangming?
At this moment, they almost decided at the same time that they must not let Old Craftsman be hurt even if they would be killed.
However, before they could channel their essential Qis and unleash their potentials, the indifferent Venerable One suddenly flashed a gentle smile on his stiff face.
"Younger Brother, youre Old Craftsman, am I right?" Tiandao the Venerable One laughed. "Youre Master Ou Yangmings closest kinshipIve heard so much about you."
Old Craftsman was delighted. "Elder Brother, youve met Lil Ming?"
"Hehe, I havent met him yet."
"Uh, ah, this" Old Craftsman flushed and did not know how he should continue the conversation.
Tiandao the Venerable One quickly added, "I havent met him in person yet, but weve met each other spiritually. Hehe, I know where he is, and Im planning to visit him. Would you like to come with me, Younger Brother?"
Old Craftsmans eyes lit up right away. He responded without holding back, "Great! Im almost going to rot here, so itll be great if I can meet Lil Ming soon."
Tiandao the Venerable Ones face darkened, and he asked coldly, "Younger Brother, have you been treated poorly these few days?"
Outside the courtyard, the disciples from Mount Wuzhi turned pale when they heard the Venerable One. A few of them even trembled and almost lost their balance.
The 3 Venerable Ones from Mount Wuzhi were reputable, but Tiandao the Venerable One was the most famous one. This was because he had the strongest killing intent, and he would kill anyone if he clashed with anyone verbally, so he was known for being notorious. Most importantly, the Venerable One was relentless and merciless. If the disciples were killed by him, nobody would stand up for them.
Old Craftsman chuckled and shook his head. "Elder Brother, youre kidding. Ive had a good stay here; nobody treated me poorly." He paused for a bit before he urged the Venerable One. "Elder Brother, when are we setting out to meet that b*stard?"
"B B*stard." Tiandao the Venerable Ones face twitched, and he thought, This old mans probably the only one that has the guts to call the Phoenixes messenger a b*stard.
After having a short yet pleasant conversation with each other, Tiandao the Venerable One and Old Craftsman agreed on a time. The former then fluttered away.
Inside the courtyard, Old Craftsman nodded as he was satisfied. He shook his head when he looked at the 3 ladies, who seemed to have turned into wooden sculptures. These ladies havent seen much of the world indeed. In the end, an old man like me has to handle the situation.
That said, he did not know that whether it was the 3 outstanding ladies inside the courtyard or the people outside, they had the same unspeakable question in their heads.
This Tiandao the Venerable One isnt a fake one, is he
