Chapter 1730: Reunited With Ming Long
Wu Yu sent the three into his Devouring Apotheosis Realm, and then sent his location at Beckoning Moon Sky to Ming Long via immortal message talisman.
Ming Long had sent quite a few immortal message talismans saying that she wanted to meet Wu Yu. She had stabilized her situation, but felt that it was better to meet Wu Yu to explain.
However, Wu Yu had been in Heavenly Buddha’s Domain for a while now, and had only just made it back after unlocking the fourth seal.
Wu Yu was relieved to read that Ming Long was doing well.
Soon, a s.e.xy girl came flying out to Wu Yu. She had black hair and black eyes – it was the Saintly Lotus Frame body of Ming Long!
“Ming Long, are you alright?” Although the immortal message talisman had explained things quite well, but Wu Yu still asked her concernedly.
“Wow, when did you become an immortal fairy? Looking good, I didn’t know Beckoning Moon Sky provided such services. Impressive.” Ming Long laughed loudly to see his form.
Her laugh was like the rustling of branches, a coy and enchanting sound.
All tension in Wu Yu sighed out of him upon hearing that laugh.
Wu Yu was a little sulky. He had to hold this disguise to avoid attention, and now Ming Long was laughing at him.
He ignored it, but continued: “Alright, enough. How are you? You dealt with the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord already?”
The name sobered her up. She shook her head and explained: “I haven’t. Actually, the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord and I are completely fused into one body, and cannot be separated. However, I have worked hard all these years, and finally gained control of the body.”
“You can think of me as a split personality. Most of the time, I’m me. But sometimes, I might be Heaven Devouring Evil Lord or Yu Fuyao of the Heavenly Seas. We are one now. If one dies, the other cannot live either.”
Wu Yu was not expecting to hear this.
Now they were the same person, and the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord would occasionally rear his ugly head.
“How do you feel? Are you in pain when Heaven Devouring Evil Lord takes over?”
Wu Yu asked tenderly.
He felt that all of this was his own fault, for not telling Taiyi Zhenren that the soul of the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord still lingered within the Ruyi Jingu Bang.
He had clean forgotten about it. Back then if he had spoken out, Taiyi Zhenren might have had a way to deal with the soul fragment. It was too late now.
“It’s fine. It’s just annoying when I can’t control my body.”
Ming Long shook her head. “You needn’t worry about me. Most of the time, I’m in control. Even if the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord comes out to cause mischief, I can take back control. I just can’t keep permanent control of my body. You don’t need to blame yourself either. It’s not perfect, but old mother here is back nevertheless. Feels good to be alive again, and it’s all thanks to you.”
Wu Yu was finally satisfied upon hearing that Ming Long was feeling good.
Besides, the Ruyi Jingu Bang was in his possession again, and so he had actually lost nothing.
He would naturally keep his promise, but before handing the Ruyi Jingu Bang over to Taiyi Zhenren, he had to uncover all of its secrets and fulfill his ultimate goal.
Which was to find the culprit who had ended Demon Immortal Realm, and killed the Great Sage, Heaven’s Equal and his companions.
All of the immortal emperors had lost their memories, and the Heavenly Buddha’s Domain immortal buddhas had all turned into black buddhas. Perhaps the puppetmaster behind all this was one and the same.
He would have to directly confront the strongest beings in both immortal domains to find answers.
In Heavenly Domain, it would be the immortal emperors of the Jade Emperor’s level. At Heavenly Buddha’s Domain, it would be the Buddha Above All, Xuanzang.
After explaining her situation, Ming Long went away again.
She had been fighting the Heaven Devouring Evil Lord’s consciousness all this time, and now finally had it under control. She planned to use her newfound autonomy to roam the sky palaces and explore the world.
Before, she had been living in the Jambu Realm, and had not made it to the sky palaces, so it was all new to her.
Wu Yu did not keep her. After all, he could not help her now, and besides he was tied up in trouble which might end up implicating her.
“In that case, I’ll go to Eternal Emperor Tomb first!”
Wu Yu watched Ming Long leave, and decided on this.
He was currently a second tier immortal emperor, and he had grown quite strong. But to reach where he wanted to be, he still had a long way to go.
There were still too many immortal buddhas in Heavenly Buddha’s Domain who could catch and defeat him easily.
If he wanted to roam Heavenly Buddha’s Domain and find its secrets, he had to become stronger.
And his largest h.o.a.rd was back in Eternal Emperor Tomb.
Through the bronze ball, Wu Yu returned back to Eternal Emperor Tomb in Demon Immortal Realm. Each time he pa.s.sed by Demon Immortal Realm, he would drop in on Jiu Ying to check on him.
Jiu Ying had been improving at pace, neither surprisingly quickly nor slowly. After all, the spa.r.s.e spiritual qi in Demon Immortal Realm limited his cultivation.
Jiu Ying still wanted to immerse himself in the traditional world of Demon Immortal Realm. Although it was badly ravaged, but it was ultimately the territory of the demon immortals.
Jiu Ying felt a sense of kins.h.i.+p when he cultivated here.
Wu Yu spent two days with Jiu Ying, and then headed for Eternal Emperor Tomb. He knew that he did not have much time left, and he had to use it all well.
The two epochal immortal designs that Wu Yu had unraveled previously with his Spirit Penetration Art were called Roar of the 9 Ghostly Dragons formation and 9 Thunderous Nimbus G.o.ds Formation.
Roar of the 9 Ghostly Dragons formation was made up of nine elite immortal designs that together formed an epochal immortal design. It used the roar of nine different dragons to deter any intruders. A sound-wave epochal immortal design!
As for 9 Thunderous Nimbus G.o.ds formation, it was made up of nine thundercloud immortal designs, each bringing forth a different type of devastating lightning. One would be struck by 10,000 different bolts of lightning!
These two epochal immortal designs were as deadly as 3 Billion Lifetaking Blades Formation and Maelstrom Silver Dagger Sphere.
But Wu Yu already knew them like the back of his hand.
In Eternal Emperor Tomb, he first started with Roar of the 9 Ghostly Dragons formation. The epochal immortal design guarded the corpse of the Encompa.s.sing Sky Demon Emperor, an eternal demon emperor!
Encompa.s.sing Sky Demon Emperor’s true form was a giant serpent, but he was powerful enough to run with the best even in Immortal Dragon Imperial Realm. He was a fifth tier demon emperor!
If Encompa.s.sing Sky Demon Emperor still lived, he would be equivalent to the Longbrowed Arhat Immortal Buddha in Heavenly Buddha’s Domain, or perhaps the Dhrtarastra in the sky palaces – an important demon immortal in the hierarchy.
The Roar of the 9 Ghostly Dragons formation guarded his tomb. He had not only offered up his body to the champion of his vengeance, but had also showed the secrets of his unique epochal immortal design to help the champion.
The Demon Immortal Realm’s devastation was a bitter strike in the minds of the eternal demon emperors. Even if they had to sacrifice everything, they wanted revenge.
“Rest in peace, Encompa.s.sing Sky Demon Emperor.”
Wu Yu stood before his grave. He had already broken the Roar of the 9 Ghostly Dragons formation. He read the plaque carefully, paying homage to the life and history of Encompa.s.sing Sky Demon Emperor before he finally turned into the Heaven Devouring t.i.tanic Beast and respectfully began devouring.
Besides Encompa.s.sing Sky Demon Emperor, the 9 Thunderous Nimbus G.o.ds formation guarded an eternal demon emperor called Kun Queen, also a fifth tier eternal demon emperor like Encompa.s.sing Sky Demon Emperor.
[TN: Kun 鲲 is a mythical creature, a huge fish that can also turn into a roc.]
This three-headed Kun Queen was a large blue fish, the size of a lesser realm. She could take on the immortal buddhas of the Heavenly Buddha’s Domain without problem.
After her death, she too had also given up her body for the successor to consume and carry out their revenge.
Both of them were fifth tier eternal demon emperors. After devouring them, the apotheosis immortal energy in Wu Yu’s Devouring Apotheosis Realm again received a huge boost.
It built and built to a peak, and then broke through. A metamorphosis, and he reached the third tier of the immortal emperor realm!
Even Wu Yu himself had not expected things to go so smoothly. However, he realized a problem when he looked inside his Devouring Apotheosis Realm.
Because he had devoured too much recently, a lot of black qi now lingered in his Devouring Apotheosis Realm.
