Chapter 1250 - A final chance at survival



Chapter 1250: A final chance at survival


Everyone gradually undid the numerous layers of formation around the sleeping Li Qiu Yu.


Because they were afraid that Gu Qing Shan might have rigged some sort of deadly trap, the entire process was extremely slow.


Finally, Li Qiu Yu was woken up.


When she knew that Gu Qing Shan made her unconscious, she was very angry.


After Li Chun Dao’s further explanations, she understood that his target wasn’t her, but Li Qiu Shan.


She got even angrier.


“Brother, he didn’t even feel tempted by a beauty like myself, is he sick or something?” Li Qiu Yu angrily complained.


Li Chun Dao helplessly told her: “You’re overthinking it, he merely wanted to take advantage of Qiu Shan’s spirit linked power, that had nothing to do with your appearance”


“Enough, no need to talk about this any further. From now on, Chun Dao will move in to live with Qiu Yu to better prevent that Gu Qing Shan from attempting further harassment” Shan Hai Qi Xia said.


“Yes” Li Chun Dao replied.


Suddenly, a piece of dark-purple bone fell from the sky, hovering in front of Shan Hai Qi Xia.


She received the piece of bone and carefully observed it, then changed her expression.


Everyone felt tense.


“Sect master, are there any issues?” Banishing Sword Saint – Wang Shun asked.


Shan Hai Qi Xia’s gaze scanned through everyone.


Other than the 13-year-old Li Qiu Shan, everyone here was a solid pillar of the School.


Shan Hai Qi Xia replied: “Something had changed about the corpse, we need to quickly gather people, not allowing the others to take the secret within it for themselves”


Everyone was shaken.


Corpse.


What corpse?


Of course it would be that wraith’s corpse!


It was the only corpse of a primordial Samsara monster anyone had ever discovered up to now.


It must be related to the secret of the Samsara as a whole!


Gu Qing Shan almost couldn’t control his facial expression.


This is huge.


Regardless of what happens, I definitely can’t let the Wraith realm obtain any benefits from this, otherwise, the 900 million World Layers would be in great danger.


But how would I escape right now?


My current identity is spotless, having endured numerous layers of examinations, so it isn’t easy to replace.


Even Shan Hai Qi Xia didn’t try to obscure me from hearing those words just now.


Because she felt that a 13-year-old child wouldn’t be able to understand her words without knowing the full picture.


In truth, if Gu Qing Shan hadn’t exchanged information with her earlier, he wouldn’t have been able to guess anything from these words either.


While Gu Qing Shan was quickly pondering his actions, Shan Hai Qi Xia ordered: “Li Chun Dao and Wang Shun, the two of you will protect the School; Zhang Jiu Bai, Xu You Hai, both of you shall follow me into the great tomb immediately!”


“Understood” everyone responded.


Shan Hai Qi Xia didn’t waste a single moment and shot up to the sky.


Extinguishing Saintly Hands – Zhang Jiu Bai, and Old Man Embracing Bones – Xu You Hai, both followed closely.


Their figures disappeared after flashing a few times in the air.


Banishing Sword Saint – Wang Shun retracted his gaze and said: “Make the arrangements for your younger brother and sister, I’ll take the shift tonight, it’ll be your turn tomorrow morning”


Li Chun Dao nodded: “Very well, we’ll take turns, if Gu Qing Shan is found again, immediately raise the alarms!”


“Hm”


Wang Shun turned around, summoned the guards, and once again arranged the School’s entire defenses.


From afar, he could be heard speaking: “Listen up, from now on, the hands at all stations will be tripled, up until sect master and the others return…”


Li Qiu Yu pulled his gaze back, turning to Li Qiu Yu and Li Qiu Shan: “Alright, from now on, I’ll be living and eating with you, for easier protection”


Gu Qing Shan hesitantly asked: “But then, how are we going to live?”


The brother-sister pair followed where he was pointing.


Only to see Li Qiu Yu’s cave dwellings had already been broken into a tattered open cave.


—–this was the result of Li Chun Dao’s slash when he leapt out.


“Brother, you’re going to pay for fixing my house” Li Qiu Yu muttered.


Li Chun Dao swung his hand: “I’ll summon a few Bone Masters for repairs; it’ll be done very quickly!”



The next day.


Gu Qing Shan made his way to school as normal.


Li Chun Dao needed to take the day guard shift, so he didn’t accompany him.


On the other hand, Banishing Sword Saint – Wang Shun, when handing the shift over to Li Chun Dao, actively offered to protect Gu Qing Shan.


“You want to protect him? Isn’t that the job that sect master gave me?” Li Chun Dao asked in confusion.


Wang Shun casually said: “Because I might have a chance to run into that Gu Qing Shan again——- last time, I let him run, this time, I’ll spare the probing and immediately fight with everything I have, I’ll make sure to kill him!”


He then stroked Gu Qing Shan’s head and gently said: “Li San Lang, don’t worry, I’ll be sure to protect you well”


“That is… then… thank you big brother Wang”


Gu Qing Shan said with a complicated expression.


Since a child was making such a face, everyone thought he felt moved.


Li Chun Dao thought that it made sense, so he handed Gu Qing Shan to Wang Shun while he took over the guard shift.


And then…


On their way to school, Wang Shun followed Gu Qing Shan closely while paying attention to any and all disturbances in their surroundings.


When they entered the Study Lodge, as Gu Qing Shan saw some students, he appropriately said:


“Big brother Wang, I think it’s best that you don’t enter our class. If a bigshot like you show up, my classmates wouldn’t be able to concentrate on the teacher’s lesson”


Wang Shun’s eyebrows twitched a bit, about to say something, but several students had already noticed him.


“Sir Banishing Sword Saint!”


“Oh my god, it’s the real Sword Saint!”


“Whoa, am I hallucinating? Why is he accompanying Li Qiu Shan to the Study Lodge?”


Wang Shun gazed over those children and saw that there were even more of them behind that.


His lips twitched, swallowing the words he was about to say back down.


In the end, when the students’ lesson began, he stood on the highest building of the Study Lodge, using his presence to observe the Study Lodge, making sure that not a single blade of grass would escape his perception.


The morning lesson was a general knowledge class.


This class introduced a lot of the world’s natural characteristics and general knowledge.


Everything proceeded normally.


In the afternoon, there was another practical combat class.


Gu Qing Shan once again entered the destroyed world.


“Hoh—–”


Gu Qing Shan sighed, falling into thought.


A change had occurred with the ancient wraith corpse, so the Tomb of Myriad Beasts and Wraith realm must have summoned all of their elites to carefully investigate the change.


But I can’t go there right now.


If nothing goes out of the ordinary, I’ll be accompanied by Banishing Sword Saint – Wang Shu, and Blade Venerate Li Chun Dao at night, which makes it nearly impossible to escape their surveillance and do what I need to do.


This destroyed world is the only place I can be alone temporarily.


——although Wang Shun didn’t follow me this time, there’s no guarantee that he wouldn’t realize it next time and demand to come in with me as a guard.


In other words, this is possibly the final chance for me.


If I want to attempt something, I need to perfectly grasp this final chance, otherwise I’d have no choice but to give up on this identity.


“War God UI” Gu Qing Shan called out.


[I’m here]


The War God UI responded.


Gu Qing Shan paused a bit, then asked: “Have you ever investigated this inheritance I received? Were there any issues with it?”


Very unusually, the War God UI asked him in return: [What are you suspecting?]


Gu Qing Shan replied: “When I entered the great tomb with [Night Cruiser], those void monsters all wanted to grant me their inheritances. I believe that they wanted my life, rather than a successor, otherwise, that Void Gloomy Matriarch wouldn’t have cursed me to death after I refused her”


“Furthermore, from the moment I entered this world up to now, I’ve never actually come into contact with anything out of the ordinary in this world, yet the Soul Shrieker was fearful and entered Primal Chaos on its own accord after meeting me”


The War God UI didn’t react to his words yet.


Gu Qing Shan continued: “Li Qiu Yu said that when I conducted spirit linking, I gazed at her once. But as a cultivator who had reached my current level, anyone would have perfect control over their bodies. Never mind a gaze, I’d notice even a change in my hair or fur”


“If she wasn’t lying, then the one who gazed at her definitely wasn’t me”


This would sound terrifying to anyone who heard it, but the War God UI continued to remain silent.


Gu Qing Shan continued: “Compiling the above points, I believe that the inheritance I obtained has some sort of issue——- did you not notice?”


A short moment of wait.


Gu Qing Shan saw his Soul Points being deducted by 1000.


Following that, the War God UI began to explain:


[The nature of inheritances are as follow:]


[It is a unique kind of magic, the same as cultivation knowledge bestowal. It mixes Skills with past experience and understanding, then pouring it all into the Thought Sea of the inheritor as one package]


[——because the inheritance is merely an inheritance, the decision to learn or practice them ultimately lies with the inheritor]


[For that reason, the War God UI, as well as Order and Chaos, and any others of the same nature, draw the following conclusion towards inheritances:]


[Passage allowed]


[All in all, if any issues come from the inheritance, later on, the system has the determination, the confidence, and the ability to remove the inheritance from your Thought Sea]


Gu Qing Shan silently listened, then looked up a bit in thought.


“I’m wondering… if there would be a kind of inheritance that, by nature, isn’t harmful to me, so it is allowed passage”


“However, after I fully grasp the inheritance, something would trigger”


The War God UI replied: [If the triggered event is harmful to you, the system will directly erase the corresponding inheritance]


Gu Qing Shan shook his head: “No, the triggered event wouldn’t be harmful to me itself, but it will harm me”


This was confusing.


He further explained: “For example——- some sort of spirit linked summoning would occur, since this is a harmless summoning technique, you will allow it to occur”


[Indeed, the system shall allow a spirit linked summoning] the War God UI replied.


Gu Qing Shan’s gaze became deep and continued: “But both you and I wouldn’t know whether or not the summoned entity would be able to replace me within my fate”


“It will be saved, while I will be forced to take on its fate——– which would surely be an extremely terrible fate of eternal suffering, one without any hope of escape”


“The Soul Shrieker wasn’t even afraid of entering Primal Chaos, but refused to fight me, so it must have been afraid of something”


“After a lot of thinking, a situation even more terrifying compared to ceasing to exist for eternity, must be something of this nature”
