My Senior Brother is Too Steady - Chapter 722 - Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning
Chapter 722: Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning
Perfected Taiyi never felt that there was anything in the world that could make him feel troubled and conflicted.
If he encountered any injustice, he would just say a few words and he would feel very satisfied.
However, he encountered it today.
‘What should I do?’
Eldest Senior Brother, Guang Chengzi, the number one immortal of the Golden Bell Sect of the Jade Void Palace, was lying on the platform. He was reckless.
What does it mean by being too smart for one’s own good? Eldest Senior Brother was almost like that this time.
Chan School had a complete plan to support the Zhou Nation. Their thoughts were very clear. They wanted to “make sense” and “smoothly” let the immortals of Jie School fill the calamity.
However, after Senior Brother Guang Chengzi had been in seclusion for a few days, he suddenly changed his mind and forcefully interfered with the battle between the Shang Nation and the Zhou Nation. He did not even hesitate to plot against one of the few people that Junior Brother Changgeng cared about the most.
Perfected Taiyi could not understand what Guang Chengzi was doing. However, he was certain that Guang Chengzi knew what he was doing and was not controlled by the calamity.
However, what could he do today?
A large number of Jie School immortals had already rushed over. Daoist Duobao was leading them. Behind him was the Goddess of Turtle Spirit, Fairy Qiong Xiao, and the white-robed female immortal, Yun Xiao, who could influence the situation in the Three Realms with just one sentence.
What can I do?
Perfected Taiyi smiled bitterly. In terms of intelligence, after Senior Brother Guang Chengzi collapsed, he, who was ranked in the top five in all aspects, and the twelve Golden Immortals who were ranked in the top three in terms of overall strength, stood up to preside…
“Everyone, don’t be anxious!”
Daoist Wen Shu sent a voice transmission. “Senior Brother Guang Chengzi has been restrained by Junior Brother Changgeng. Listen to my arrangements later. Save Eldest Senior Brother first.”
The corners of Perfected Taiyi’s mouth twitched crazily. He deliberately flew slower with a black face and even pulled Perfected Yu Ding back a few steps.
Let him be.
The immortals’ joys and sorrows are not connected. I just feel that this fellow is very noisy.
He heard thunder in front of him. More than a thousand Jie School immortals were the first to land. They deliberately shook the universe and created some momentum.
The number of immortals of Chan School was much weaker to begin with. Their average cultivation level was also weaker. At that moment, they were under a lot of pressure.
At this moment!
A crane cry sounded from the sky. An old man with white hair and a longevity peach on his forehead stepped on the back of the white crane and flew over with a few white-haired elders.
As soon as the old Daoist priest appeared, the immortals of Chan School seemed to be emboldened. They each activated their rainbow light and quickly landed behind the old Daoist priest.
The person who came was naturally the Old Man of the South Pole.
At that moment, the eight immortals of Chan School, the Old Man of the South Pole, and the Twelve Golden Immortals of Chan School walked forward together.
Daoist Duobao of Jie School, the other four eldest disciples, and the Grandmaster of Heaven, followed the immortals forward. They stood on the left and right of the platform at the same height as Li Changshou.
The Old Man of the South Pole looked down at Guang Chengzi and squeezed out an ugly smile.
“Junior Brother Changgeng.”
Li Changshou said, “Please call me Lord Taibai Jinxing.”
“Lord Taibai Jinxing.” The Old Man of the South Pole sighed and said, “I know everything here. This matter is Chan School’s fault. Moreover, Junior Brother Guang Chengzi has done wrong. Please spare Junior Brother Guang Chengzi this time on account of the Dao Sect.”
He lowered his attitude when he spoke, making it difficult for Jie School to say anything.
Li Changshou said, “There is no success without rules. Chan School prioritizes background, followed by luck, and then rules. I believe you should understand my conviction for Guang Chengzi today.”
The Old Man of the South Pole sighed and said, “Junior Brother Changgeng, what rules did Junior Brother Guang Chengzi break?”
Li Changshou said, “The Heavenly Courts have a rule that immortals cannot interfere with the mortals.”
“However, Junior Brother Changgeng, when the Great Tribulation descended, the heavenly secrets corresponded to the change of the royal authority in the mortal world of the South Continent,” the Old Man of the South Pole retorted calmly. “There were immortals like Wen Zhong and the Imperial Preceptor of the Shang Nation. They led troops to battle everywhere and revealed their mystical abilities repeatedly. Why did the Heavenly Courts ignore it previously? Now, Guang Chengzi has only done something that corresponds to Wen Zhong. Why are the Heavenly Courts attacking?”
Then, the Old Man of the South Pole smiled and hurriedly said, “This is not intentional or unfair. I’m just stating the facts. Please don’t blame me, Lord Taibai Jinxing.”
Li Changshou looked at the South Pole Immortal and smiled faintly.
Perfected Taiyi and Perfected Yu Ding’s hearts skipped a beat.
That expression and the feeling that he gave them… often appeared when Changshou attacked the Sixth Saint!
Li Changshou said “The Old Man of the South Pole is also in the Heavenly Courts. He should know the cause and effect of this matter. Now, in general, there’s no distinction between the beginning and the end. It’s not appropriate to talk about the process. Previously, the Great Tribulation’s luck was strong. One of the great uses of this tribulation was to select the righteous gods for the Heavenly Courts. Therefore, the Heavenly Courts turned a blind eye to the two sects entering the mortal world. In the beginning, the immortals of the two sects were still restrained. They were only officials and generals. They did not reveal their mystical abilities during the battle and did not exceed the scope allowed by the Heavenly Courts’ Heavenly rules. However, as the casualties of the Chan School and Jie School increased, immortals appeared in front of mortals and slaughtered them wantonly.
Therefore, not long ago, I ordered the Hall of Enlightenment to announce the heavenly rules of the Primordial World and emphasize the matters of the South Continent. My intention is to make the immortals of the two sects restrain themselves. After the Heavenly Courts reiterated this matter, they did not send the Heavenly Soldiers to investigate. They had already given the Chan School and Jie School enough respect. What happened after that? Jie School no longer interfered with the South Continent. After Wen Zhong died, Jie School endured and did not react. However, Guang Chengzi of Chan School was fearless. He ignored the rules of the world and used pills to reduce his lifespan to obtain the lifespan of hundreds of thousands of mortals. He almost changed the situation of mortals by himself. The lifespan of hundreds of thousands of mortals was a huge matter. The mortal situation was even more important. The Human Emperor had been destroyed by the immortals with such a vicious plan. It was a huge matter! Should Chan School take responsibility for this?”
The immortals of Chan School were speechless.
Daoist Wen Shu immediately said, “The Zhou Dynasty’s Shang Dynasty is originally the destiny. Senior Brother Guang Chengzi is following the heavens. How can the Heavenly Courts punish him?”
“Alright,” Li Changshou said calmly. “Everyone, please follow me to the Fire Cloud Cave. In the name of the human race’s disciple, Li Changshou, I ask the seniors of the Three Emperors and Five Emperors to convict Guang Chengzi for plotting to kill the Human Emperor.”
“Lord Taibai Jinxing, there’s no need to be so stiff about this matter.” The Old Man of the South Pole looked at Wen Shu and said warmly, “Now that the situation in the South Continent has been decided, the mortal soldiers will be spared from death. The people of the various regions will be peaceful in a few years. Although Guang Chengzi is in the wrong, he is also trying to protect his sect. Please, Changgeng, oh no, Lord Taibai Jinxing, give Chan School more leeway on account of their relationship.”
Qiong Xiao, who had been silent, could not help but stand up when she saw that her brother-in-law was angry. She folded her arms and said, “Why do you care so much about pride? My brother-in-law has already explained the matter clearly. The cause and effect are clear. Guang Chengzi has committed a crime. Since Chan School is protecting him, I will really cry out for justice for the disciples of Jie School who died in the South Continent.”
Daoist Duobao placed his hands behind his back and his bulging abdomen swayed slightly. He said seriously, “Regarding that, I’ll talk about something else. Senior Brother Guang Chengzi was in charge of managing the matters of Chan School. Back then, he was the master of the human race, the Human Emperor Xuanyuan. He should not know the consequences of his actions. Is he being controlled by the calamity? Is his mind affected?”
The Goddess of Turtle Spirit said gently, “Although Senior Brother Guang Chengzi is not considered one of the top disciples of the Dao Sect in the battle, he is still at the Dao Realm. If the Great Tribulation Luck is so powerful, we would have been hit long ago.”
“Junior Sister, you make sense.”
Daoist Duobao looked at Guang Chengzi and frowned. “Then why did Senior Brother Guang Chengzi do that? It seems like he’s deliberately provoking the human race.”
The Old Man of the South Pole took the opportunity to say, “Why don’t you release Guang Chengzi and listen to him?”
Li Changshou was silent. He sat quietly on the cloud and closed his eyes to think.
The main purpose of the immortals of Jie School coming today was to support Li Changshou. It was not that they had to fight to the death with Chan School. After all, after killing the Saints, the two sects did not have to fight to the death.
However, when the immortals of Chan School saw that, they thought that Li Changshou did not dare to let Guang Chengzi speak. They naturally agreed.
Perfected Pu Xian said, “Even if you want to convict Senior Brother Guang Chengzi, you should listen to his explanation. There might be a misunderstanding here.”
Chi Jingzi said in a low voice, “Senior Brother Guang Chengzi has always been magnanimous. It’s unlikely that he would do such a thing. We should ask in detail.”
The other immortals of Chan School also spoke. They said that they should let their Eldest Senior Brother distinguish between them and tell them the details.
Although Chan School was in the wrong this time, if there were any secrets, it would not affect the disciples’ impression of their Eldest Senior Brother.
Only Perfected Taiyi could not help but mutter, “Why do I feel that it’s better not to let Eldest Senior Brother speak?”
Many immortals of Chan School glared at Perfected Taiyi. Perfected Taiyi took half a step back and hid behind Perfected Yu Ding, who had been silent.
Li Changshou opened his eyes and did not say anything. He sat on the cloud and raised his hand to draw a seal. He flicked his finger at Guang Chengzi.
Immortal light floated around Guang Chengzi. A shadow appeared on his immortal body. He first looked up at the cloud and frowned slightly. He pursed his lips slightly and immediately returned to his cold expression.
He said, “Junior Brother Changgeng, is this your attitude towards me after your Dharma powers and mystical abilities are powerful?”
Li Changshou said calmly, “Even if my Dharma powers and mystical abilities are inferior to yours, I still have to seek an explanation from you.”
The Old Man of the South Pole immediately said, “Guang Chengzi, Lord Taibai Jinxing said that you used immortal spells to interfere with the mortal world and murder the human emperor. Do you admit to this?”
Guang Chengzi nodded calmly and said, “If Di Xin can be considered a human emperor, I will indeed do so.”
“How can the King not be considered the Human Emperor?”
Daji looked up and glared at Guang Chengzi. Her eyes were filled with hatred. “His Majesty has the destiny of the human emperor. Who in the Three Realms doesn’t know that? You colluded with your relatives, bewitched the priests, and schemed. You used the vassals of the Zhou Nation as knives, pretended to be the emperor, and refined the Demon soldiers with pills. You forced my King to burn himself!”
Wen Shu scolded firmly, “Stop talking nonsense, demoness!”
Qiong Xiao rolled her eyes. “You’re all living beings created by the Great Dao of living beings. Why are you pretending?”
Layers of Dao runes appeared around Li Changshou. A seemingly calm voice made the immortals speechless. Their Dao hearts were even a little peaceful.
Many immortals from the two sects looked at Li Changshou in shock. Their Dao hearts could not help but palpitate when they saw the well-defined young man’s face.
Li Changshou said, “Daji, don’t speak again. Guang Chengzi, let me ask you. Do you agree with what Daji said?”
Guang Chengzi nodded calmly and said, “Yes.”
“Is there a secret?”
Guang Chengzi said, “There’s no secret.”
Li Changshou frowned and said calmly, “If that’s the case, I will punish you for plotting to kill the Human Emperor. I will destroy the stability of the mortals in the South Continent, shake the prestige of the Heavenly Courts, and disregard the stability of the Heavenly Dao. I’ll cut you into three flowers, take the five breaths in your chest, and then enter the Six Paths of Reincarnation. You can’t cultivate for nine lifetimes. Are you convinced?”
Guang Chengzi’s expression changed. He stared at Li Changshou and said coldly, “Junior Brother Changgeng, don’t go overboard! You and I know best about this matter. Di Xin should have suffered this calamity. I was just guided by the situation. What’s wrong with that? The Heavenly Fate is in the Zhou Dynasty, they should be happy.”
“Perhaps Chan School believes in Heavenly Fate. Ren School does not believe it. The human race does not believe it either.” Li Changshou stared at Guang Chengzi. “The human race can reach this point not because of the so-called Heavenly Fate. You were once an imperial teacher and you should understand this logic. I know best about this matter. Why don’t you tell me and let the immortals here listen? Why must Di Xin die? Why are you so impatient!?!”
Guang Chengzi clenched his fists slightly and immediately released them. He looked at Li Changshou without saying a word.
“Junior Brother, if you do such a disobedient thing, don’t drag the Dao Sect into the mud.”
“Senior Brother, you can’t represent the Dao Sect. I can’t represent the Dao Sect either.” A faint pressure appeared around Li Changshou. The image of the Kongtong Seal condensed behind him and a brilliant Great Dao suppressed him!
This Great Dao condensed an unyielding will and passed down an unyielding belief!
He was famous!
The Dao of Man that had existed for a long time in the world, but was revealed for the first time!
Li Changshou’s voice was like a huge bell and drum, shaking the world.
“However, I can represent the human race to seek revenge on you today. He could represent the Heavenly Courts and protect the dignity of the Heavenly rules! I can represent myself and tell you, Senior Brother. Either you tell me the secret behind this today and tell me why you are doing this, or you will be at my mercy. Yun, lend me the Primordial Chaos Golden Chalice.”
Yun Xiao immediately walked forward and the golden ball in her hand flew towards Li Changshou. Li Changshou raised his hand and caught it, pressing it down.
“Changgeng, show mercy!”
The Old Man of the South Pole shouted loudly. The immortals of Chan School wanted to attack.
However, Li Changshou turned around and took a glance. The Kongtong Seal trembled. The brilliant power of the Human Dao was monstrous. It actually suppressed the immortals and prevented them from moving!
Golden light flashed, and the Primordial Chaos Golden Chalice reached Li Changshou’s palm. Guang Chengzi’s immortal body was immediately sucked into the Primordial Chaos Golden Chalice. His essence soul floated in midair, still just a phantom.
His true essence soul was still locked in the golden arena. At that moment, it was still just a projection of his essence soul.
Li Changshou said firmly, “Guang Chengzi, do you know your sin!?!”
Guang Chengzi’s eyes were filled with a sharp glint. He shouted, “Do you take Chan School seriously?”
“You were the one who did not treat me as a human first. Why don’t I see immortals as immortals!?!”
The Primordial Chaos Golden Chalice in Li Changshou’s hand shone brightly, as if it was about to spin.
“One last question. Tell me, or not!”
“Li Changgeng! You’re the one who wants to rebel. Don’t implicate us!”
Li Changshou nodded slowly. His eyelids slowly drooped. The Primordial Chaos Golden Chalice in his hand was about to spin. The immortals of Chan School were about to attack. Yun Xiao, Daoist Duobao, Qiong Xiao, and the Goddess of Turtle Spirit immediately wanted to fight.
At this moment!
A wisp of Dao runes arrived as scheduled. The Primordial Chaos Golden Chalice’s light was suppressed, and the universe seemed to have frozen!
The pressure that almost suffocated the Golden Immortal!
The world seemed to have suddenly darkened. A figure appeared in front of the South Pole Immortal. He had his hands behind his back and was dressed in a gray robe. His face could not be seen directly. Even if he saw it, he would not leave any impression on living beings.
The Dao runes seemed to reveal the profundity of order and rules.
The moment that figure appeared, all the living beings within a radius of tens of thousands of kilometers cried out.
The Sect Master of Chan School, the Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning!
At that moment, the Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning did not speak. His face was expressionless as he looked at Li Changshou calmly.
Li Changshou was the fastest to react. He stood up calmly and bowed to the Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning. “Greetings, Second Uncle-Master.”
The immortals bowed. The Jie School addressed Second Uncle-Master, while the Chan School addressed Teacher.
The Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning nodded slightly and bowed to the juniors.
“Changgeng, Guang Chengzi is my beloved disciple. Can you spare him this time?”
Li Changshou sighed and looked troubled.
“Second Uncle-Master, Senior Brother Guang Chengzi has already committed a huge calamity this time. After the Human Emperor’s destiny collapsed, there are no signs of it condensing. The human race’s losses are too heavy.”
The Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning said, “I know that you care about the human race, Changgeng. I also know that you are carrying a heavy responsibility. However, Chan School has always followed the principles of the world. Guang Chengzi’s actions were taught by me. In my eyes, what he did was not bad. If you feel that you cannot accept it, it would just be a conflict between the teachings and the ideals of the human race. Guang Chengzi is not from the human race. In ancient times, he had helped Human Emperor Xuanyuan many times. Now, his merit is offset. Can you do that?”
Li Changshou smiled bitterly.
He felt gratified and helpless.
He was gratified that his Second Uncle-Master was definitely not like Jie Yin or Zhun Ti. He could sense that his Second Uncle-Master valued his disciples.
The so-called pride of a Saint was not as important as his disciple.
However, Second Uncle-Master did not seem to be prepared to fight against the Heavenly Dao.
At that moment, Li Changshou did not want to give up. He said softly, “Uncle-Master, as long as Senior Brother Guang Chengzi tells me the secret, I can only reduce Senior Brother Guang Chengzi’s cultivation level and let him experience the difficulties of mortals. I won’t send him to reincarnation.”
It looked like he was retreating, but he was actually forcing the Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning to express his stance.
The Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning stared at Li Changshou without much hesitation.
“Changgeng, I don’t want to attack a junior.”
Li Changshou already understood the position that the Saint had chosen. He slowly pushed the Primordial Chaos Golden Chalice behind him and faced the Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning.
“However, if you want to take Senior Brother Guang Chengzi away, don’t blame me for offending you.”
Daoist Duobao shouted, “Don’t be rude to Second Uncle-Master! Don’t spout nonsense!”
Fairy Yun Xiao’s face turned pale. She wanted to move forward but was stopped by the Saint’s Dao charm.
The Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning raised his hand slightly and gestured for Daoist Duobao not to speak.
“Changgeng, have you thought about it?”
“Second Uncle-Master.” Li Changshou bowed. “I’ve actually been pushed here by Grandmaster. I have no choice.”
“Forget it.” The Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning sighed softly. “I’ll take a few moves from you. If you can’t hurt me, let Guang Chengzi off today. How about that?”
