Omnipotent Sage - Chapter 230
Chapter 230: Birth of the Purple Light, Separation of Two Realms
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
The purple lightning was extremely eye-catching within the clouds and the night sky. It was very normal for lightning to burst forth and disappear within the clouds. Everywhere there were strange blue lights. They were long or short, big or small. Each burst carried with it an extremely destructive spirit. Junior Leopard was already used to it.
Yes, he was already used to it.
However, when he saw this streak of purple lightning flash past, he felt a tug in his heart.
He didn’t know why. He didn’t even know what the purple thunderbolt represented.
This was just like when a baby was born, and he wanted to drink milk, to cry, and to make noise. It was an instinctive ability that he couldn’t sense.
The feelings that Junior Leopard had for the purple thunderbolt were the same. When he didn’t see it, he didn’t know what it was. After seeing it, an ability that was hidden within his DNA told him to quickly obtain this purple thunderbolt in his hands. That was regardless of whether he knew how.
The Nine Heaven Thunder Qi of the Blue Sword had long surpassed the requirements of cultivating the Jade Original Power Gang. The most important thing was that he ridiculously cultivated the second phase of the Carefree Skill. The Divine Rush Object and divine thoughts were also purified by the lightning power until it was extremely pure.
“Could it be that I must use the Blue Sword to absorb this purple thunderbolt? That can’t be done. Now the Blue Sword’s Nine Heaven Thunder Qi is already brimming full. If it is not for the Peach divine wood sustaining it, it would’ve long exploded. If it entices the purple thunderbolt, it will definitely explode!”
Junior Leopard thought in his heart, “Could it be that I must separate out my divine thoughts? Eh, that can be done!”
Carefree Skill was a way to cultivate the spirit passed down from antiquity. It was miraculous. The first state, Guarding Spirit between Heaven and Earth, was repeatedly training and grinding the divine thoughts, allowing one’s divine thoughts to be pure and thick. No matter how thick and pure they were, divine thoughts were still tightly connected to the spirit. They couldn’t be separated. Just like the body and the limbs were connected. You can travel through air on a reigning sword celestial device through your divine thoughts. That was because theoretically speaking, divine thoughts could be extended endlessly. For example, these divine thoughts were basically one’s thoughts. Those who were rich in imagination could reach out to the galaxies billions of light years away. However, these thoughts were still inside the brain. No matter how far this reigning sword celestial device traveled, divine thoughts were still connected to the spirit. When one reached the second state, Divine Rush Object, the situation was different. It could allow the divine thoughts to completely separate, cutting off the connection between divine thoughts and the spirit. One’s individual thoughts had already attained an independent existence. Even if it was destroyed and completely collapsed, it would not affect one’s spirit.
Even though this might be the case, he had never done so before.
He stayed within the thunderclouds, and the divine thoughts were repeatedly purified by the thunder Evil Qi. His spirit was almost shattered by the lightning. Subconsciously, he had reached the state of Divine Rush Object. It was difficult to immediately ask him to separate out his divine thoughts to entice the purple thunderbolt that was nestled within the numerous lightnings.
“Wealth is pursued in danger. When I separate out my divine thoughts, it’s unable to affect my spirit. It can’t even affect my Blue Sword. I should just try it!”
The Blue Sword was filled with the power of his spirit. When a trace of thoughts split out, it wasn’t a difficult thing for him.
With this decision, he naturally had to go all the way with it. Within this thundercloud, there wasn’t room for a shred of hesitation.
Nine stalks of faint green light floated out from the Blue Sword. It floated and twice circled around the Blue Sword.
These nine stalks of light were Junior Leopard’s thoughts.
Divine Rush Object. Only when he reached this state and separated out his divine thoughts, Junior Leopard then suddenly realized that these divine thoughts were in stalks. They were like the green light emitted by fireflies. It was ghostly green like ghost fire. Actually, these were ghost fires.
Damn, it was ghost fire!
Junior Leopard scolded in his heart. Nine stalks of ghost fire. Oh, no, these nine thoughts circled around the Blue Sword for a few more rounds. He finally was used to letting the thoughts move according to his will.
A thunderbolt rang by the side. The nine thoughts were lost, and instantly it disappeared into nothing within this thunderbolt.
Junior Leopard scolded loudly. There were again nine stalks of thoughts flying out from the Blue Sword. This was the greatest number of thoughts that he could separate out. This time around, he didn’t practice flying it. The nine thoughts clumsily floated towards the middle area of the thunderclouds.
This road was not good to walk on.
The thunderclouds were filled with thunder Evil Qi. If it was anyone else, just the dense Nine Heaven Thunder Qi was enough to destroy their thoughts. Junior Leopard cultivated the Divine Rush Object within the wrapping of the Nine Heaven Thunder Qi. Hence, just the Nine Heaven Thunder Qi was unable to destroy his thoughts.
What worried him was the thunderbolts within the thunderclouds.
A few thunderbolts roared and cut off the route of his thoughts. The speed of the nine thoughts slowed down tremendously. On the side, there was another thunderbolt which exploded destroying four of the thoughts.
“Damn it! I spent so much effort just to let that thunderbolt strike me!” Junior Leopard scolded in his heart. Now that things had developed to such a point, whether the purple thunderbolt would destroy him or not, he had to try.
The remaining five stalks hurried towards the center of the thunderclouds. There were another few thunderbolts ringing. Junior Leopard’s luck wasn’t bad. When the last thunderbolt rang, he still had one stalk of thought left. It rushed towards the vicinity of the purple thunderbolt.
“Then, now, what do I do?!”
The last thought rushed to the side of the purple thunderbolt. Junior Leopard didn’t know what to do.
Do I rush in and get struck by lightning? If I don’t go forward, then what did I come here for?
To research this purple thunderbolt?
Please, I’m now only a mere thought!
Yes, now the Junior Leopard by the side of the purple thunderbolt was only a thought. It was not his complete spirit. It wasn’t his divine thoughts either. It was just a thought split out from his divine thoughts. Junior Leopard’s instructions for this thought was to merely get close to the purple thunderbolt. As for what it should do once it got near, Junior Leopard hadn’t thought it through.
When this thought neared the purple thunderbolt, it stopped. It followed by the side of the purple thunderbolt and didn’t rush forward. It didn’t leave either.
Slowly, Junior Leopard discovered the mysteriousness of this purple thunderbolt.
In the surroundings of the purple thunderbolt, everything became strange. It was swimming around the thunderclouds. In these clouds where lightning birthed and disappeared endlessly, the purple lightning was a unique existence. No matter where it swam, the thunderbolts near it would automatically cease. Even if they were just born, after the purple thunderbolt swam near it, it would disappear immediately. This purple thunderbolt was the king amongst the thunderbolts. No matter where it surveyed, the thunderbolts would surrender and no longer birth forth.
As for Junior Leopard’s stalk of thought following near the purple thunderbolt, there wouldn’t be any danger of it being struck. That was because, in the surrounding of the purple thunderbolt, there wouldn’t be any chance of any lightning produced.
A streak of lightning burst forth. However, it wasn’t near the thought. It was near the Blue Sword. The Blue Sword trembled and instantly moved towards the center of the thunderbolts towards where the purple thunderbolt was moving.
Junior Leopard was greatly shocked. The clouds’ surface area wasn’t big. Under the trembling of the thunderbolt, the purple thunderbolt was going to clash with the Blue Sword. Even though the purple thunderbolt’s route was haphazard, it was very obvious that it didn’t have the habit of giving way to things. As for Junior Leopard’s divine thoughts, they suffered a tremendous impact due to the lightning strike. They were unable to control the Blue Sword in a short moment’s time.
“Let’s listen to heaven’s will!”
Since things had developed to such a state, it could only be so.
Let’s listen to heaven’s will!
The thought that was following beside the purple thunderbolt suddenly rushed towards it like a moth pouncing at a fire.
“Hong—!” The last stalk of thought thoroughly rushed into the purple thunderbolt. The purple thunderbolt that was moving closer to the Blue Sword suddenly stopped and brushed past the Blue Sword. At the same time, Junior Leopard’s divine thoughts regained normal operation. They began to control the path the Blue Sword took.
“Pu—!” A weird sound rang. The stalk of thought that rushed into the purple thunderbolt didn’t get destroyed. Instead, it was spat out by the purple thunderbolt. At the same time, the purple thunderbolt squirmed into the thunderclouds and vanished.
“What is happening exactly?!” Junior Leopard didn’t seem to understand at first. Suddenly, he felt that the stalk of thought that was spat out had a strange change. It was no longer green; it was more like a purple crystal shimmering with strands of purple light. As this purple crystal swam about the thunderclouds, it could actually produce the same effect as the purple thunderbolt.
“Good fella!” Junior Leopard was excited. His divine thoughts extended out from the Blue Sword and instantly kept this purple thought.
If Junior Leopard’s divine thoughts were water, this thought that was split out had already turned into a drop of hot oil. Once it landed into the water, it instantly exploded within the divine thoughts. Numerous thin and fine purple lightning strands were released from this stalk of thought.
The Blue Sword trembled violently. The Thunder Yuan within the sword interacted with the purple lightning strands. There was a feeling of bloatedness. The Thunder Yuan was about to explode!
After that stalk of thought released the purple lightning strands, it stabilized within Junior Leopard’s divine thoughts. However, it had an oil-water relationship with his divine thoughts. Although it was still under his control, it was unable to merge with his divine thoughts. It could only have an independent existence.
Just when the Thunder Yuan was about to explode from the lightning strands, that stalk of crystal thought moved. The remaining purple lightning strands were kept.
The pressure on the Thunder Yuan was reduced. It began to digest the remaining lightning strands.
Although this strand of purple lightning was very small, this Thunder Yuan appeared to Junior Leopard like an ant eating an elephant. Without ten days to half a month, it wasn’t possible to digest this purple lightning strand.
He managed to heave a sigh of relief.
After absorbing this stalk of thought, the Blue Sword could make a full retreat from within the thunderclouds.
Although these thunderclouds were accumulating, with the presence of that purple thunderbolt, the lightning within the clouds was unable to harm Junior Leopard’s Blue Sword. The Blue Sword instantly split open the clouds and transformed into a blue rainbow in the sky returning into Junior Leopard’s fingertips.
After keeping the Blue Sword, Junior Leopard heaved another sigh of relief. There was a whirl surrounding him. His body shook, and his face was like golden paper. At this moment, no matter if it was Elder Qing or Golden Rooster, they didn’t dare to go near him.
After a long while!
Junior Leopard finally recovered from the trembling. His back straightened. The weird whirl that appeared around his body had also vanished. He felt as weak as a person who just recovered from a major illness.
“Junior Leopard, are you all alright?”
“I’m fine. I just need some time to digest the rewards this time around!” Junior Leopard turned his head. The Smiling-face Mask on his face appeared even more intriguing at this moment.
“You have loads of time!” Elder Qing smiled. Even though he didn’t know what Junior Leopard’s rewards were, he understood from the way the Blue Sword trembled that Junior Leopard had at least gathered enough Nine Heaven Thunder Qi for him to cultivate his Gang Qi.
After a month, the rain had cleared the sky. The rain continued for several days causing the village grounds to become extremely muddy. Even though everyone has some abilities in the Immortal Palace, it was rare to use Lightness Skill. Even if the sky was clear, the people rarely went out. That was apart from Elder Qing, Junior Leopard, and Golden Rooster.
“This damned treacherous weather is finally over,” Junior Leopard looked at the endless clear sky and said.
“Yes, finally it’s over, but you leaving so quickly is outside of my expectations. I thought that you would wait till your Jade Original Power Gang Spirit is completely stabilized.”
“There’s no need. I have already cultivated the Jade Original Power Gang. Now, I just need to solidify my realm,” Junior Leopard said. “I couldn’t stay in Immortal Palace the whole day either. Afterall, there’s a load of things for me to do.”
“Yes, that’s my mistake,” Elder Qing said. “I heard from the old man that you have learned quite a bit of the ancient language. You can already understand the collection from the medieval period.”
“The old man is overpraising me. I only learned to read a few words.” Junior Leopard smiled. “The old man teaches well. If not, I wouldn’t learn so quickly. It’s a pity…”
“There’s no pity. You are now one of the 28 Mansions in Immortal Palace. It’s propriety that he taught you. There are very few youngsters like you who are so hardworking and willing to learn the knowledge passed down from ancient times.” Elder Qing helplessly shook his head. A look of pity was all over his face. “You could learn so much from him and have such achievements. I think the happiest person should be him and not you.”
Junior Leopard smiled and tilted his head. “No matter what, I still want to thank the old man!”
“This old man had holed up in Immortal Palace for so many years. The thing he yearned for was to pass down all that he knew. If he could spread his teachings far and wide, that’ll be the greatest gratitude towards him.” Elder Qing patted Junior Leopard. “During these times, the materials for Air-frozen Bead are not easy to find.”
“Yes, not easy to find, but as long as I’m willing, there’s a chance,” Junior Leopard said.
“Eh, the time is nigh. This old fella shan’t delay you any further. Yuquan, help me to send off Junior Leopard.”
“Yes!” Golden Rooster said.
“Why, are you not going to leave with me?”
“There’s no mission. Why am I leaving?” Golden Rooster smiled. “This is my house; I stay here!”
“I understand.” Junior Leopard raised his head. “No matter what, I still have to thank you. The benefits that I gained are much more than you all think.”
“Immortal Palace won’t care about how many benefits you got.” Golden Rooster smiled. “We just need to know that you are one of us, that’s all.”
Junior Leopard’s gaze shifted slightly, “Keke, that’s reasonable!”
“Then I shan’t send you.” Golden Rooster sent Junior Leopard to the entrance of the village. “I have already spoken to you once about the way to enter Immortal Palace and its route. Do you need me to repeat?”
“No need, I already remembered it,” Junior Leopard said.
Immortal Palace was situated within the Continuous Clouds Mountain Vein, a small mountain in Great Jin Qingzhou State. It was not a famous mountain, nor was it eye-catching. Much less needed to be said about its property.
Those were the thoughts Junior Leopard had before entering.
Following behind Golden Rooster into the palace, Junior Leopard realized that the Continuous Clouds Mountain Vein was not any smaller than the Misty Mountain. There was someone who used his Divine Sense to separate this huge mountain from the world and form a realm of its own. It only left behind a few small mountain peaks as the entrance and barriers only.
This was the Space Division Skill!
To use Divine Sense to cut out a portion of space to form a realm, this was the Divine Sense from antiquity times. It was very famous then. Junior Leopard also knew about such stuff. From the goat-skin scroll that he obtained from Xue Wuya, there was such a Divine Sense recorded. This kind of Divine Sense was similar to the comics in his past life, yet also somehow different.
The Space Division Skill had two kinds of effects. The first was to temporarily cause a specified space to become independent from the world. This was no different from a barrier. The other kind was to separate it permanently to cause a world to be born.
The former was easy to accomplish. The other effect was very difficult. That was because to permanently cut out a piece of land, not only a huge power was needed, another thing was required: Flickering Light Evil Qi!
Yes, Flickering Light Evil Qi. The same thing that Junior Leopard used to cultivate the Three Realms Division.
Space had its own way of healing itself. Junior Leopard once understood it, but not the way he understood it now. Just like a person’s body, after it was cut up, it will heal after a while. The speed at which space healed was much faster. Flickering Light Evil Qi could slow down the healing speed. Just like when Junior Leopard was activating the Three Realms Division, if there wasn’t Flickering Light Evil Qi, he would be shredded into meat chunks in a short instant by the space.
Similarly, when using the Space Division Skill, to permanently cut off a space to be independent, Flickering Light Evil Qi must be used to cause a cut-out space to be independent from the original space. Space was then divided into two which would grow independently into two different spaces.
After entering the palace, he looked back to see that gateway had vanished. Only a huge rock remained at the foot of the Continuous Clouds Mountain Vein.
“To cut out a space in the Continuous Clouds Mountain Vein that is as big as the Misty Mountains requires an enormous Divine Sense!”
Seeing the few mountain peaks behind him, Junior Leopard sighed. He was impressed and fearful, “No matter what, I have finally settled the problem of my twin hammers. I’m unable to cut out the entire mountain, but I know where there is Flickering Light Evil Qi. I also know about the method to cut out a space to fit my twin hammers. The benefits that I gained from the palace this time around are too much!”
When thinking about the rewards he reaped this time, Junior Leopard couldn’t control himself. He deeply breathed in and heaved out a long breath.
He refined the Blue Sword. His External Elixer’s cultivation broke through Level Six. He absorbed the Nine Heaven Thunder Qi and formed the Green Jade Qian Element Original Gang. His Carefree Skill had been cultivated to the state of Divine Rush Object. Furthermore, there was that stalk of thought that had been purified by the purple thunderbolt. Now, there were the refining methods of the Space Division Skill and the Air-frozen Bead.
Junior Leopard had been aware of none of these before coming to the palace.
Of course, to Junior Leopard, the biggest rewards were not breaking through Level Seven, nor the formation of Gang Qi, nor even the Space Division Skill. It was the thought that had been purified by the purple thunderbolt.
Even though Junior Leopard didn’t know what was its special purpose, when that thought was in the Blue Sword, the lightning strands that had been spilled out were now completely merged with the Thunder Yuan. It could be said to be completely dissolved. At the same time, where it greatly increased the power of the Thunder Yuan, it also changed the substantive nature of the Thunder Yuan. It could be said to be like the Mysterious Fire within Junior Leopard’s Dantian changing his Nine Dragons Heavenly Fire Internal Qi. When the Thunder Yuan absorbed the purple lightning strands, it began to flash some purple intent. Junior Leopard could feel that as long as the Thunder Yuan completely dissolved the strand of purple lightning, the pneuma birthed forth from the Thunder Yuan would be much more powerful than a normal thunderbolt, even if it wasn’t like the purple lightning snake.
“I have really gained much this time around!” Junior Leopard raised his head to look at the sky. The corner of his lips underneath the mask flashed a satisfying smile. “Space Division Realm. Looks like I have to take a trip!”
