Chapter 2419 The Hermit of Green Lotus, Li Bai
‘Based on the ancient legend on earth, the disciples of Celestial Masters Sect, that was founded by Celestial Master Zhang Dao Ling, specialize in thunder attacks! It seems like it’s true!’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself when he saw the lightning that was intertwined with Zhang Yi’s sword. He could see that Zhang Yi’s Saint Origin contained lightning attributes that allowed him to summon lightning easily.
Duan Ling Tian continued speculating inwardly, ‘Based on Zhang Yi’s posture, it’s likely that he’s a Dao Cultivator. Moreover, in the ancient legend from my past life, disciples from the Celestial Masters Sect are, generally, Taoist priests.’
“Lightning!” Zhang Yi cried out again.
Thunder began to rumble in the sky immediately before a bolt of lightning struck down. The bolt of lightning was as thick as a huge tree trunk. Its force was extremely strong! Moreover, its speed and accuracy were incredibly high. It struck the place where Duan Ling Tian and his companions were hovering above like a dragon.
“Ah!” Han Xue Nai and Liu Xia exclaimed in unison when they saw the lightning striking in their direction.
Duan Ling Tian’s comforting words rang in their ears in a timely manner. “Don’t worry. This bolt of lightning won’t hurt us!”
Thunder continued to rumble in the sky as the bolt of lightning finally made its target clear. It was heading to Zhang Yi as though it was going to devour him!
The bolt of lightning that was several times bigger than Zhang Yi carried with it a terrifying power as it prepared to strike down at Zhang Yi while Zhang Yi continued to wave his Thunder Sword above his head.
The following scene surprised everyone. When the thick lightning bolt came in contact with the Thunder Sword, it was instantly and greedily absorbed by the sword like a hungry child. It began to emit a dazzling purple light after it completely absorbed the lightning bolt.
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
The purple lightning bolts that surrounded the swords buzzed loudly at this moment.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes brightened when he saw this, “This method…” He could clearly feel the strong resonance between Zhang Yi’s sword and heaven and earth! Based on this, he could tell Zhang Yi was probably one of the stronger cultivators at the Ninth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage. With Zhang Yi’s comprehension of heaven and earth and his affinity with lightning, his Celestial Ascension Tribulation should be just around the corner.
“Lightning strike!” Zhang Yi cried out again.Read more chapter on vipnovel.com
Han Xue Nai and Liu Xia’s eyes were trained on Zhang Yi’s Thunder Sword at this moment.
Zhang Yi lifted the Thunder Sword before he slashed them down through the sandstorm.
The sound of a sword cry rang in the air. Zhang Yi’s sword cry was different from Duan Ling Tian’s sword cry. Duan Ling Tian’s sword cry sounded clear and pure whereas Zhang Yi’s sword cry contained the low roar of thunder.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
When Zhang Yi slashed his sword down, there was a burst of light. Nine bolts of lightning shot out from the sword like nine purple wyrm dragons. These nine bolts of lightning converged into one gigantic bolt of lightning before it struck down at the desert ferociously. The light was so dazzlingly bright that even Duan Ling Tian had to squint his eyes.
Duan Ling Tian and the two women were still squinting their eyes when an earth-shattering noise rang from under their feet. Accompanying the noise was a huge shockwave. However, the shockwave was quickly suppressed by Zhang Yi’s Thunder Sword.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
After that earth-shattering noise died down, the sandstorm seemed to have disappeared!
Duan Ling Tian and his companions could see a giant pit in the midst of the desert. They could see an extensive palace hidden in the giant pit.
“Is this an underground palace?”
As soon as Duan Ling Tian had spoken, the palace of the gates opened automatically as though it was welcoming them. Before they regained their senses, a voice that was filled with vigor rang from the palace. It stunned Han Xue Nai, Zhang Yi, and Liu Xia and caused Duan Ling Tian to slightly frown. How could they maintain their composure at this moment?
“Young men, congratulations! You’ve arrived at the heaven-rank treasure vault I left behind. My name is Li Bai, and I’m also known as the Hermit of Green Lotus. I’m a Sword Celestial!”
Han Xue Nai, Zhang Yi, and Liu Xia’s eyes brightened when they heard these words. They were pleasantly surprised.
‘Heaven-rank treasure vault left behind by a Sword Celestial? It seems like this is an extraordinary place!’ Han Xue Nai thought to herself.
Duan Ling Tian lost his composure for a moment. ‘Li Bai? The Hermit of Green Lotus? Sword Celestial?’ In his past life, there was a famous poet in history who was called Li Bai, the Hermit of Green Lotus. Apart from being a famous poet, he was also an excellent swordsman.
‘Peerless swordsmen can kill a man in ten steps. They fought for justice without asking for anything in return.’ This was a poem from Li Bai. Coincidentally, it was also Duan Ling Tian’s favorite poem.
Duan Ling Tian felt his heart skip a beat as he thought to himself, ‘Is this Li Bai the same Li Bai in history from my past life?’
In Duan Ling Tian’s past life, Journey to the West was a fiction that was written based on mythology about Sun Wu Kong and Pig Monk. However, Li Bai was a real person in history from the Tang Dynasty!
‘Based on the time I’ve been in the Saint Province Realm, it seems like Li Bai was from 1,000 years ago! The Beyond Heaven Secret Zone had existed for a long time. Senior Feng Qing Yang came here hundreds of thousands of years ago and obtained the inheritance from a Great Overarching Golden Celestial who was also a Sword Cultivator. A Sword Cultivator…” Duan Ling Tian was confused as he thought to himself.
Zhang Yi exclaimed, “Li Bai? The Hermit of Green Lotus? The Sword Celestial? Is he the famous Green Lotus Sword Saint from our Yan Huang Realm 1,000 years ago?”
Zhang Yi’s words caught Duan Ling Tian’s attention immediately. However, he was still confused. The Beyond Heaven Secret Zone opened hundreds of thousands of years ago…
“Zhang Yi, did you say Yan Huang Realm had a Green Lotus Sword Saint 1,000 years ago?” Duan Ling Tian asked with bright eyes.
Zhang Yi nodded before he said in a reverent tone, “The Green Lotus Sword Saint shared the same hometown as our Celestial Masters Sect; Planet Yan Huang. He was a genius in that era. Although Planet Yan Huang was lacking Heaven and Spirit Energy, he cultivated until he was able to leave that place! It took him less than a hundred years to pass the Celestial Ascension Tribulation and ascend to a Devata Realm. He’s widely acknowledged as the most outstanding genius in 10,000 years on Planet Yan Huang!”
Zhang Yi paused for a moment before he continued to say excitedly, “If the person who left this underground palace
