Chapter 1717: Saintly Lotus Frame
The Deathless Lotus Pool was a mysterious place on the Reality Origin Sky. The main material that could enable one’s spirit remnant to come back to life grew in this place.
There were numerous lotuses in the Deathless Lotus Pool. However, there was only one Deathless Lotus. The Deathless Lotus only grew several segments of lotus roots and a single lotus flower over millions of years. This was an extremely precious treasure even for Taiyi Zhenren.
The Deathless Lotus had a total of 81 petals and emanated a saintly white glow br.i.m.m.i.n.g with life. One could sense the aura of life just by looking at it.
“Truth be told, even if you want to exchange it for your epochal immortal treasure, I’m still a little reluctant. The Deathless Lotus is one of the most mysterious treasures in this world. A single flower only blooms once every few million years,” said Taiyi Zhenren regretably.
Patriarch Bodhi laughed, “Don’t lament after getting away with the better end of the deal! Your Deathless Lotus has no use for over millions of years. Aren’t you waiting for someone to exchange for other treasures? This epochal immortal treasure of my humble disciple is definitely among the best. You definitely wouldn’t find a second one in this world! Your Deathless Lotus would grow out after several million years. You lost nothing in this trade!”
“That’s not how you should say it. Bodhi, this is a fair trade. No matter how powerful an epochal immortal treasure was, it is still just a worldly possession. How could it be compare with the life of one’s kin?”
Taiyi Zhenren laughed heartily, “Look right there. The lotus in the middle is the Deathless Lotus! Only one would grow in several million years. One could create the Saintly Lotus Frame with it. No matter whose soul was attached on it, he would be an immortal from birth. Morever, he would be relatively talented. At the very least, becoming immortal king wasn’t an issue. If he worked harder, becoming immortal emperor wasn’t a dream.”
“From a spirit remnant to eternal life. What amazing encounter of this world would it be? You definitely couldn’t find another person in the Heavenly Domain who could achieve the same!”
As Taiyi Zhenren spoke, he gave off a sacred and intimidating aura while walking towards the middle of the Deathless Lotus Pool.
As the aura emerged, Patriarch Bodhi took several steps back with Wu Yu. Watching solemnly, he said, “Watch it closely. Zhenren is about to begin.”
Wu Yu was a little anxious and agitated.
The moment of seeing Ming Long’s resurrection was about to come. Although the price was a little too hefty and he had to hand over Ruyi Jingu Bang, a promise was still a promise to him. Moreover, for him to not regret his actions in the future, he had to make this decision.
In the Deathless Lotus Pool, Taiyi Zhenren carefully tapped his finger. He cautiously harvested the Deathless Lotus with reluctance hung upon his face.
Taiyi Zhenren harvested all 81 petals of the Deathless Lotus. Each petal hovered above the Deathless Lotus Pool, gradually forming the frame of a human.
Wu Yu stood by the side and watched with Patriarch Bodhi.
Even Patriarch Bodhi was interested in it. After all, the act of bringing one back to life couldn’t be observed under normal circ.u.mstances. Patriarch Bodhi had never seen these techniques of Taiyi Zhenren as well.
As Taiyi Zhenren cast his various apotheosis immortal techniques and apotheosis Mystiques, the 81 petals of Deathless Lotus glowed in mysterious light. The glow was mesmerizing and one could sense the great dao of life and death from each ray of light.
This was the unique understanding of life and death by existence of Taiyi Zhenren’s level. Only by using all the techniques of Taiyi Zhenren could one maximize the effects of the Deathless Lotus to the fullest.
Although the Deathless Lotus was a paramount treasure of the sky palaces, others still could reforge a person’s frame with it and bring the dead back to life.
One could say the Deathless Lotus was a condition to resurrecting Ming Long and so was Taiyi Zhenren himself.
Other than asking Taiyi Zhenren for help, Wu Yu really couldn’t find another way to resurrect Ming Long. More importantly, Ming Long’s days were numbered. Her spirit remnant had weakened too substantially and Wu Yu couldn’t find another solution within the short time frame.
Under the effects of Taiyi Zhenren’s apotheosis immortal techniques, all the petals of the Deathless Lotus congregated into the appearance of a young girl. Numerous lotus flowers bloomed on the body, covering her entirely as though she was immersed in a sea of flowers.
This was the Saintly Lotus Frame and the body of Ming Long in the future!
Wu Yu couldn’t see the situation in the Deathless Lotus Pool clearly. This was because exuberant aura of life had coalesced to form fleeting clouds, circling around the Deathless Lotus Pool.
Taiyi Zhenren continued casting his apotheosis immortal techniques and dense aura of life had the human frame completely surrounded.
“Send the soul over!”
Following Taiyi Zhenren’s command, the Ruyi Jingu Bang, which had been in Wu Yu’s hands, flew up. The spirit remnant of Ming Long who had been hiding in the Ruyi Jingu Bang was guided out by Taiyi Zhenren using apotheosis immortal technique. To Wu Yu’s surprise, an immortal spirit was formed after the spirit remnant immersed and mixed with the exuberant aura of life of the Deathless Lotus.
The immortal spirit was the foundation of an immortal. One would only be truly considered as immortal by having an immortal spirit. Only then could one jumped out from the ranks of mortals and enjoy numerous times longer lifespan.
The Saintly Lotus Frame would be an immortal the moment it was formed. This gave Ming Long a higher starting point. She wouldn’t have to cultivate from a mortal and this would save her lots of effort.
The immortal spirit that was formed with Ming Long’s spirit fused rapidly into the dense aura of life within the Deathless Lotus Pool and eventually with the Saintly Lotus Frame.
Taiyi Zhenren used the most critical Mystique at the final moment, guiding the immortal spirit into the Saintly Lotus Frame and enabling the eventual fusion!
49 days. This was the most critical juncture.
It wasn’t simple for the newly formed Ming Long’s immortal spirit to fuse with the Saintly Lotus Frame. At the very least, there probably wasn’t a second person in the sky palaces other than Taiyi Zhenren who was capable of it.
This was also the only hope for resurrecting Ming Long.
The closer he was to success, the more anxious Wu Yu was getting. He had been looking forward to this day for a very long time.
When he first met Ming Long, he was still in Heavenly Sword Thrust. Then, he had promised Ming Long he would ressurect her and many other conditions subsequently. During those times, the other conditions seemed difficult to achieve.
Looking back, those conditions were just fleeting clouds.
Becoming an immortal had broadened their vision. When Ming Long was resurrected, she would be an immortal immediately. She no longer needed the treasures of the mortal domain.
Initially, Ming Long was looking forward to relying on some precious treasures of the mortal domain to achieve immortalhood after she was resurrected. Now, they wouldn’t be necessary.
For full 49 days, Taiyi Zhenren remained in the Deathless Lotus Pool. He didn’t move an inch but the vitality of the Saintly Lotus Frame was getting stronger and stronger. Exuberant life energy seemed to have a.s.similated into the Saintly Lotus Frame.
Now, the Saintly Lotus Frame looked just like a sacred white lotus flower.
When the final day came and Taiyi Zhenren had succeeded with his Mystique that could bring the dead back to life, the white lotus flower bloomed in full. An absolute beauty with black haired and black eyes appeared before their eyes.
That was Ming Long!
Her Saintly Lotus Frame was slender, graceful and provocative. The petals of the lotus flowers formed a black long dress, only revealing small areas of her snow-white skin. She was stunning.
At least to Wu Yu, he felt Ming Long was way more beautiful than Peach Cloud Fairy and Happy Fleece Fairy after taking the first glance.
Happy Fleece Fairy had the same s.e.xy and provocative style. However, she lacked a unique charm as compared to the current Ming Long. The charm might be from the Saintly Lotus Frame created from the Deathless Lotus or it might be from Ming Long’s spirit.
Or perhaps it was a combination of both that gave her that unique alluring charm……
However, Wu Yu wasn’t focusing on her looks. Instead, his eyes were fixed on her eyes.
Through all tribulations, Ming Long was finally resurrected. Moreover, she became an immortal immediately and would enjoy a long lifespan. From here onwards, her foundation to cultivate to greater heights was way better than her previous lifetime.
Ming Long’s eyes seemed to be filled with thousands of emotions. She looked at Wu Yu and her eyes was filled with grat.i.tude but also guilt.
Wu Yu stood up and was shaking in agitation.
“You… Hmph. How dare you not listen to your great aunt!”
Ming Long was in fact really moved. However, at the thought that Wu Yu would have to hand over the Ruyi Jingu Bang, her expressions gloomed immediately. She berated, “What a foolish brat!”
“Haha! I’m not foolis.h.!.+ Now that I see you are resurrected, I finally fulfilled my promise to you in the past. I believe I wouldn’t regret my actions,” Wu Yu laughed heartily and spoke with conviction.
Seeing Ming Long resurrected was fulfilling a wish of his.
“Hehe. I’ll watch and see if you will regret in the future.” Ming Long fumed as she jumped out of the Deathless Lotus Pool.
She familiarized herself with her brand new Saintly Lotus Frame, open her strides and came before Wu Yu. The sweet scent that followed her had a natural charm.
When they got closer and the dense mist that surrounded Ming Long dissipated, an exquisite face appeared before Wu Yu.
Curiosity filled her bright eyes as she reached out her slender-white hands to pinch Wu Yu’s face. After, she burst into laughter. “Seems like you aren’t that different after becoming an immortal emperor~ You face is still pretty soft!”
Wu Yu smiled at her actions. This girl was just resurrected and she was just as carefree as before!
“Hey there, you guys can catch up on the old days later. Shouldn’t you be handing that epochal immortal treasure to me now?”
Taiyi Zhenren walked out from the Deathless Lotus Pool with eager eyes. It seemed that he’s really excited about the Ruyi Jingu Bang.
