Chapter 460 Meeting the God of Plague in the World Edge Secret Realm
A white cloud carried a few figures and slowly flew towards the horizon.
Bian Zhuang’s hands and feet were cold. The light in his eyes was scattered, his eyes were lifeless, and his breathing was messy. He couldn’t help but break out in cold sweat…
He turned his head and looked at the young Daoist who had transformed into the Water God beside him. He wanted to persuade him again, but his tongue was trembling.
What does the Water God mean by frowning? Is he blaming me for making a fuss?
However, can such a transformation technique really deceive others?
Speaking of which, isn’t your incarnation a paper effigy? What can you do in the World Edge Pavilion? Listen to music?
“Lord, Water God.” Bian Zhuang asked softly, “Are we really going to my house?”
Li Changshou did not reply. At that moment, he frowned slightly and had a serious expression. He was in a dilemma.
After a while, Li Changshou turned around and looked at the other side. He was smiling and squinting, looking forward to it…
“General Qin,” Li Changshou said softly, “It’s not appropriate for you to go with us.” “Lord Water God, don’t panic.” Qin Tianzhu cupped his hands. “I will follow you to see the world. I will not go overboard.”
Li Changshou said, “Why don’t I believe you?”
Bian Zhuang: “From what you said, you still know that it’s inappropriate!”
Qin Tianzhu waved his hand and smiled. “Lord Water God, you should be more carefree. This is for serious matters. You are not really out to sightsee.”
Bian Zhuang rolled his eyes and decisively stood up. He whispered to Qin Tianzhu, “How dare you lecture the Water God? How can the Water God not know what my World Edge Pavilion does? How could the Water God not know that if others find out about this matter, it would damage the reputation of the Water God and affect the reputation of the Water God in the Three Realms? Would it cause the Saint behind his Dao companion and Dao companion to be displeased…? Tianzhu, we are both generals of the Heavenly Courts. I have to remind you to be careful with your words. Lord Water God is confident! We will do our best to help Lord Water God settle this matter.” Qin Tianzhu squinted and smiled. He nodded repeatedly. “General Bian is right.”
Li Changshou secretly glared at Bian Zhuang and smiled. “Since we left the Heavenly Courts together and hid ourselves, let’s change our identities. In that case, the three of us will pretend to be sworn brothers.
Brother Qin will be the elder brother, I will be the second brother, and Deputy Commander Bian will be the third brother. How about that? This is just a disguise. There’s no need to take it seriously.”
The hint was obvious.
However, Bian Zhuang did not receive the signal at all. He nodded and agreed with Qin Tianzhu.
Then, Bian Zhuang continued to look troubled and worried.
Li Changshou was in a similar state of mind.
If the Queen Mother knew about this matter, or someone exposed that the Jade Emperor’s incarnation had gone to a place like the World Edge Pavilion, it would be the biggest joke in the Primordial World.
Why is Qin Tianzhu here?
Li Changshou sighed in his heart. He blamed himself for speaking too quickly this time…
That was because Li Changshou had been thinking about the subsequent arrangements for half a month. When it was time to meet Youqin Xuanya, he would bring her to the Lingxiao Treasure Hall to receive the rewards.
In the Lingxiao Treasure Hall, the Jade Emperor conferred the title of heroic general and bestowed the golden armor to protect his Dao Body.
After the Jade Emperor encouraged Youqin Xuanya, Li Changshou’s’ Water God ‘paper effigy took Youqin Xuanya away and returned to the Water God Residence.
At the same time, Li Changshou’s other paper effigy entered the Lingxiao Treasure Hall and reported to the Jade Emperor about the Western Sect plotting the trichiliocosm. He also discussed with the Jade Emperor for nearly four hours.
Li Changshou suggested to secretly form a faction and use the power of the Heavenly Courts to develop quickly and compete with the Western Sect in the trichiliocosm.
The Jade Emperor agreed without hesitation and handed it to Li Changshou to handle. The resources of the Heavenly Courts could be mobilized at will, but they could not be used in the Hall of Enlightenment.
The Jade Emperor asked Li Changshou if he had a plan. Li Changshou told him about the framework of the ‘Heaven Arrival Hall’ that he had thought of. When he mentioned Bai Ze and Jiang Lin’er, he quickly added, “I feel that I can still rely on the current Trichiliocosm major factions of the world and let them assist me.”
“For example, the World Edge Pavilion in the Bian Manor. Although it is an indecent business, it is very suitable to collect information. I am about to bring Bian Zhuang to visit the World Edge Pavilion’s Pavilion Master.”
The Jade Emperor immediately captured the keyword — indecent!
Hence, Qin Tianzhu set off and watched Bian Zhuang closely.
After Li Changshou’s incarnation flew out of the Heavenly Courts with Bian Zhuang, Qin Tianzhu bumped into him on a cloud and chuckled.
“Let’s go together.”
That was the situation on the cloud.
Li Changshou and Bian Zhuang sighed together. The Jade Emperor No. 3 incarnation, Qin Tianzhu, smiled and squinted. He was extremely excited about the upcoming journey.
The World Edge Pavilion, the Primordial World’s temporary Love Tribulation Experience Hall, was also considered the head of the industry.
In recent years, the World Edge Pavilion had opened branches in the East Ocean, South Ocean, and West Ocean in the five continents. They had devoted themselves to providing high-quality romantic services to the Qi Refinement cultivators of the Primordial World.
On the way, Li Changshou asked Bian Zhuang about the secret of the World Edge Pavilion being eternal.
Bian Zhuang smiled in embarrassment and said, “I won’t cause any negative karma.” Qin Tianzhu asked curiously, “How can you not cause any negative karma in this industry? If a Qi Refinement cultivator goes to the World Edge Pavilion and causes his Dao companion to leave him and his family to be destroyed, how can it not increase the World Edge Pavilion’s negative karma?”
Bian Zhuang smiled and said, “General Qin, ahem, Brother, you might not know, but this matter can’t be blamed on the World Edge Pavilion. We are just opening the business to guests.
Whether the guests come or not is up to them. We won’t suffer negative karma because we don’t force women and men to do such work.”
Qin Tianzhu asked curiously, “There are men?”
“That’s right.” Bian Zhuang chuckled. “There are rich Spirit Stones and restless Dao hearts. There are also some female immortals who want to experience the Love Tribulation, but there are very few of them. For these guests, the World Edge Pavilion has to prepare some male lovers.”
Li Changshou was puzzled. “Then where do you find so many… lovers?”
“Actually, most of them took the initiative to join us.” “Oh?”
“The situation in various parts of the Trichiliocosm are very different,” Bian Zhuang said seriously. “Some worlds are rich in resources and spiritual energy. There are even spirit meridians everywhere.
However, this has also attracted the attention of various factions. The flames of war have been going on for years. Many people are at their wits’ end.
When I had just become a Heaven Immortal, I had followed a few stewards to a Major Chiliocosm. Less than half a day after the notice from the World Edge Pavilion was hung up, hundreds of women came to seek refuge.
They all had cultivation levels… When we filter the lovers, we have to consider their personalities, looks, and whether they have any negative karma. Then, we have to send them away from their original world.
If they wanted to leave the World Edge Pavilion, they only needed to give 20% of the Spirit Stones and treasures that they had obtained in the World Edge Pavilion over the years to the World Edge Pavilion. That would be the end of karma.
Apart from that, there were also some women who came from poor places. In order to cultivate, they took the initiative to look for the World Edge Pavilion…
This is different from mortal brothels.”
“I see.” Qin Tianzhu nodded slowly and fell into deep thought. Li Changshou said, “Perhaps the situation that your elders want you to see is a little one-sided.”
“No, it’s really not.”
Bian Zhuang hurriedly said, “Second Brother, you might not know, but I’ve been cultivating in the rouge pile since I was young. The real people in the World Edge Pavilion are my grandmother and a few other grandaunts.
When they were young, they had been forced by those who are stronger to enter the mortal world. They had endured and secretly cultivated. In the end, they had been killed by strong people.
Later on, they contacted many women who had similar experiences and established a rather famous immortal cultivation organization—the Fiend Girl League. They removed many forces that harmed women.
Later on, my grandmother helplessly realized that… many women were at their wits’ end. They just wanted to find a place to live. Therefore, the World Edge Pavilion was established. The Demon League gradually turned to the dark side.”
Li Changshou smiled and said, “They’re all heroines.” Bian Zhuang sighed softly and did not say anything. His eyes were a little dazed. Qin Tianzhu asked, “Did Third Brother remember something sad?”.
“Grandmother and the others have too many grudges and enemies. Many of my relatives have been… However, it’s peaceful now.”
Bian Zhuang smiled and said, “The World Edge Pavilion is no longer provoked by those enemies.”
Qin Tianzhu felt a little emotional when he heard that. He encouraged, “In the future, you can also bring glory to your family and make your grandmother feel at ease.” Bian Zhuang hurriedly said, “In front of the Water God, ahem, don’t say that in front of Second Brother.”
Li Changshou smiled and did not say anything.
This fellow is also a good source of fortune. Unknowingly, his position as the Grand Marshal of the Heavenly River Navy is stable.
However, he still has to polish up his temperament. Otherwise, he would be punished like a pig.
As Li Changshou wanted to see Bian Zhuang’s grandmother, the true author of the World Edge Pavilion, the three of them flew out of the five continents and headed east.
Just the journey alone took more than two months.
Qin Tianzhu was worried that Li Changshou’s paper effigy’s immortal power was insufficient and took the initiative to ride the cloud. Li Changshou declined for a while, but he could not reject it. Therefore, he gave up the right to drive the white cloud.
Some incarnations were omnipotent.
Some incarnations could not.
In the past two months, Li Changshou could not stay idle.
Most of the time, he continued to think about the matters in the Western Sect. He also further perfected the structure of the Heaven Reaching Hall in his heart.
Before he arrived at Bian Zhuang’s hometown, Li Changshou arranged for Jiu Yushi and Xiong Lingli to go to the chess room of the Little Qiong Peak. He invited Bai Ze and Exalted Wang Qing and told them about his idea of the Heaven Arrival Hall.
“Developing forces in the Trichiliocosm?”
Jiang Lin’er blinked and asked curiously, “Why did you do that? The Qi Refinement cultivators of the Trichiliocosm want to squeeze into the five continents no matter what. Why do we have to go to the Trichiliocosm to develop?”
“It’s not the Immortal Du Sect,” Li Changshou said seriously. “It’s working for the Heavenly Courts. The Trichiliocosm were also a part of the Three Realms. However, the Heavenly Courts’ influence in the Trichiliocosm was too weak. If they relied on the Heavenly Soldiers and Heavenly Generals to fight everywhere, it would be easy for the Qi Refinement cultivators to be dissatisfied with the Heavenly Courts. Therefore, under the Jade Emperor’s orders, I will establish the Heaven Arrival Hall and pave the way for the Heavenly Courts to govern the three thousand worlds.”
Jiang Lin’er looked enlightened as she sat there and pondered.
Bai Ze smiled and said, “Water God, do you need me to go out and do things?” “That’s right. The great calamity has arrived. I have many matters to attend to.” Li Changshou smiled and said, “Mr. Bai, you have the ability to seek luck and avoid calamity. It’s naturally best to have you take charge of the situation.” “I will follow the Water God’s arrangements.”
Bai Ze cupped his hands and looked forward to it. The beast was energized.
Exalted Wang Qing asked, “Changshou, what do you want to do with me?” Li Changshou cupped his hands and bowed. “I want to invite Grandmaster and her husband to be the guides of the Heaven Ascension Hall. Grandmaster has some connections in the Trichiliocosm. In the beginning, Grandmaster had appeared and contacted her previous good friends to gather their momentum.
It could also conceal the background of the Heaven Ascension Hall. There are still a few things that I have to explain in advance.
The reason why I pushed the plan of the Heaven Ascension Hall in advance is to deal with the Western Sect. The Western Sect controlled many sectors and created a divine kingdom of incense. They used it to gather destiny and merit and used it as a foundation to plan for reincarnation.
They had already made arrangements and schemes for tens of thousands of years. We started late and have to see results in a few hundred years. We have to gather a force and balance the advantage the Western Sect has in this aspect.
There were Saints presiding over the five continents. Now that the demons had given up and suffered great losses, there would be a period of peace. I will mobilize all the resources I can to quickly get the Heaven Ascension Hall on track. It’s fine even if we use some extraordinary methods.”
As soon as Li Changshou finished speaking, the chess room fell silent. Everyone fell into deep thought…
That was a huge matter that would affect the world. The risks were definitely not low.
“Hehe.” Jiang Lin’er hugged her arms and raised her eyebrows. She blinked and asked, “Are there any benefits?”
Li Changshou could not help but laugh. He knew that his Grandmaster had already agreed to that.
Exalted Wang Qing frowned and said, “Lin’er, we are disciples of Ren School. We are also disciples of Ren School! Ren School has always been responsible for helping the Heavenly Courts and benefiting the common people. Now that we are using you, how can we mention benefits?”
Jiang Lin’er rolled her eyes and snorted.
“Yes, yes. Husband, you’re right. I’m shallow, alright? Hmph!” “Lin’er, don’t be angry. That’s the logic…”
“Grandmaster, don’t worry.” Li Changshou smiled and said, “I will secretly work for the Heavenly Courts. I will not let our sect suffer. Spirit stones, pills, Dharma treasures, and merit will naturally be abundant. They can also benefit your friends. The most important thing is luck. The Jade Emperor has already ordered General Dongmu to secretly write a decree. When the decree is formed, the Heavenly Courts will protect him.” Bai Ze asked, “If we are targeted by the Western Sect, how should we deal with it?”
“We have to first choose a place to stand and avoid the Western Sect’s territory.” Li Changshou smiled and said, “I’ve thought about most of the other actions. I’ll write them down later. The initial stage is the most difficult, but there are not many experts. I want to ask you and your husband to appear, Grandmaster. Mr. Bai will be in charge of the overall situation behind the scenes, and I will be in charge of planning behind the scenes.”
Bai Ze immediately understood and smiled. “Hall Master Wang Qing, this name is not bad. It sounds interesting.” Exalted Wang Qing frowned slightly. “How can I be the Hall Master? I’m just a cultivator in the mountain who has cultivated the Dao Fruit of Longevity. I don’t know how to plan and command. Why don’t you change your candidate?”
Li Changshou sighed and said, “The Heavenly Courts lack experts the most. The only Longevity Immortal I can trust is Grandmaster Gong. The Magi are simple-minded, and the dragon race is proud. I’m not familiar with the other Immortal Sects.”
Exalted Wang Qing frowned.
Bai Ze persuaded, “It’s not easy to gain the trust of the Water God. Fellow Daoist, don’t decline.”
“As long as we get through the initial stage, the Hall Master can hide behind the scenes.”
Li Changshou smiled and said, “Moreover, the Hall Master is just a facade on the surface. In private, we still have to discuss with Mr. Bai and the others to deal with all kinds of matters together. After all, there are not many Longevity Immortals who have extraordinary bearings like Exalted Wang Qing and are handsome. It is also very beneficial for the recruitment of troops in the Heaven Advent Hall.”
Exalted Wang Qing smiled and sighed. “Changshou, I really can’t reject you.”
Jiang Lin’er scoffed. Bai Ze and Li Changshou smiled.
Suddenly, a weak shout came from the corner.
Jiu Jiu, who had been pretending to be obedient at the side, finally could not hold it in and stood up.
“Can I help you with this?”
“Aunt-Master, you don’t have to worry.” Li Changshou said warmly, “Just cultivate in peace in the mountain.” “I’m always eating and drinking for free. I’m a little embarrassed.”
Perhaps in front of her master, Jiu Jiu felt a little shy. She raised her hand and tidied her hair beside her ear.
Li Changshou smiled and said, “Aunt-Master, you have already helped me and my former master a lot during the period when I had yet to become an immortal. There’s no need to worry about such a small matter.”
Exalted Wang Qing said, “Let my disciples leave the mountain together.
Although Little Wu’s cultivation level is not high, he is well-mannered and is good at dealing with people. Yiyi and Little Jiu’s cultivation levels are not bad and they have the potential to become Golden Immortals.
They can enter the Heaven Ascension Hall to work and increase their opportunities.”
Jiu Jiu jumped over. “Really! I will not be a hindrance!”
Li Changshou smiled and nodded. He sighed softly and said, “Alright.” Jiu Jiu jumped up happily. The situation was a little out of control.
Just as Li Changshou had decided on the core “team” of the Heaven Ascension Hall’s initial stage, he arrived at a peaceful little world on the other side. His mind shifted over.
Before they entered the Small World, the three of them were stopped by a group of immortal soldiers.
There was an even mix of males and females among the Immortal Soldiers. They were all at the Perfected Immortal realm. The leaders were two late-stage Heaven Immortal realm Qi Refinement cultivators.
Bian Zhuang took the initiative to move forward and stood calmly. With his hands behind his back, he slightly spread his legs and looked at the sea of stars…
He had returned.
Unexpectedly… “Fellow Daoist, what’s your Dao name?” “Do you have the Almighties’ Jade Talisman of the World Edge Pavilion? This is the mystic realm of the World Edge Pavilion. It is only open to Fellow Daoists who have the Almighties’ Jade Talismans. Please forgive us.”
Qin Tianzhu muttered, “He even created an eminence jade token?”
The corners of Bian Zhuang’s mouth twitched slightly. He silently raised his hand and changed his hairstyle. He wiped his fingers under his eyelids twice and wiped out two dark circles. Then, he yawned tiredly and released his Dao runes…
The two Heaven Immortals frowned and observed. Then, they were shocked and shouted, “Young Pavilion Master! It’s the Young Pavilion Master!”
“Young Master, you’re back! Quick, go and report to the Pavilion Master and your grannies that Young Master has returned!”
A moment later, streams of light flew out of the Small World. There were many Golden Immortal experts with rich auras.
The clouds in front of them spread apart, and a colorful bridge of light appeared in front of them.
Bian Zhuang turned his body slightly and smiled. “Brother, Second Brother, please make yourself at home!”
Qin Tianzhu smiled. The paper effigy that Li Changshou had transformed into also smiled.
However, at that moment, a cold snort exploded in Li Changshou’s ears.
Li Changshou used his immortal senses to investigate. He saw a gray-robed old man with gray hair staring at him unhappily in the pavilion hall of the Small World.
I can’t see through this person’s cultivation level.
Li Changshou frowned and looked back. He was separated from the old man by an unknown distance. Their eyes met and sparks flew.
Suddenly, the old man sent a voice transmission.
“What a paper effigy. The only paper effigy incarnation with such a cultivation level in the Primordial World is probably the Water God Changgeng. You actually came here behind Senior Sister Yun Xiao’s back. You really don’t take the immortals of Jie School seriously.”
Senior Sister Yun Xiao? An expert of Jie School?
Li Changshou asked via his immortal senses, “Fellow Daoist, how should I address you?”
“Nine Dragons Island, Lu Yue.”
