Forty Millenniums Of Cultivation - Chapter 114
Chapter 114: Volcanic Eruption
Translator: Ash Editor: Geoffrey
After a moment, a violent roar reverberated above Li Yao's head as a chill gradually descended,
suppressing everything around it.
It was as though a towering, giant mountain was flying above the crystal train, suppressing
every living being between the heaven and earth in a 50 kilometer radius.
Li Yao, who was glued to the window to the point that his nose was almost squeezed flat, looked
at the sky with wide-open eyes.
And in the sky, he saw hundreds of meter long crystal battleship passing over the crystal train
with irresistible momentum as it rolled towards the beast tide.
From the colorful ripples that overflowed from the anti-gravity array glyphs under the
battleship, Li Yao suddenly recognized the battleship:
’’It's the Federation Army's 'Dragonslayer-class', mid-size destroyer that is specially designed to
suppress beast tide outbreaks! Its front deck is equipped with a triple barrel 'Primeval True Fire
Cannon'whose three barrels could respectively imitate the three basic energies 'Essence 精',
'Energy 气', and 'Soul 神'. When the three barrels are simultaneously activated, the terrifying
True Samadhi Fire would be shot out. The True Samadi Fire could use the corpses of demon
beasts as fuel to continuously proliferate and spread it would only be extinguished after
completely burning the beast tide!’’
’’Whiz! Whiz! Whiz!’’
Dozens of battle shuttles flew out from the crystal battleships, giving off the impression as if
several dozen giant flying swords were cruising around the beast tide.
Once a Ghost Face Mosquito trying to flee the range of the True Samadhi Fire was found, the
shuttles would swarm over and relentlessly pressure the Ghost Face Mosquito to fly back.
The Ghost Face Silver Mosquitoes, who were all high and mighty as if nothing in the world
could stop them a moment ago, had now turned pretty miserable. The Giant Python had
completely collapsed into thin and long ’’earthworms’’ that were contorting and wailing as they
struggled inside the flames.
At the same time, the red-as-blood, fiendish eye in the sky had also, god knows when, silently
closed, returning the world to its previous picturesque appearance and painting a beautiful
night sky where the bright, round moon struggled to reveal its brilliant and beautiful figure
from within the clouds.
The wormhole between the Heaven Origin Sector and the Blood Demon Sector had completely
Li Yao closed his eyes; his eyes were extremely sore.
Something burning hot began to appear at the rim of his eyes, as if it was lava that had been
suppressed for far too long and was about to erupt with nothing being able to stop it.
Only now did he open his palm, revealing the four holes dripping with blood on his palm as the
bones of fingers made ’’Crack Crack’’ sounds like rusty gears.
’’Of course, we will win!’’
A heavily injured soldier who had lost both legs from the thigh and had barely stopped his
bleeding with the assistance of spirit glyphs had his lips parted as he said with a smile spread
across his face, ’’We are the strongest battle race in the endless space, so how could a few tiny
mosquitoes be our opponent?’’
After three hours, the crystal train came to a halt at a nameless, abandoned station in the
Wasteland that was tightly surrounded by hundreds of temporary-built barracks.
Thousand of soldiers carrying Boltguns encircled the crystal train so tightly that not even a fly
could pass through.
While the ’’Dragonslayer-class’’ crystal battleship floated above the crystal train, several dozen
cultivators continued to circle around the crystal battleship so meticulously that it was as
though they were about to confront a great enemy.
It was a routine inspection after each beast tide outbreak.
It was all because there were precedents where some powerful, high-ranked demons with
profound wisdom had quietly sneaked into the Heaven Origin Sector using the beast tide
outbreak by disguising themselves as humans, causing a great deal of damage.
After suffering a few losses, the federation had become extremely responsive to the beast tide
outbreak. The federation had even started using a set of rigorous inspection procedures, due to
which the demon clan had never been able to find another opportunity to sneak into the Heaven
However, all of this could not be clearly explained to the passengers.
Naturally, it was impossible to completely hide the earthshaking battle, so the ordinary
passengers were formally informed that when the crystal train was about to leave the
Thunderstorm Zone, they had encountered an attack from a small group of demon beasts that
were very quickly thwarted by the train soldiers.
However, the crystal train had also suffered serious damage and needed to stop to undergo a
thorough maintenance. Only then would it be possible to continue the journey.
Perhaps one day, the secret files would be declassified and everything would come to light.
The passengers would then come to know that there were seven cultivators who had traded
their valuable lives for glittering thunderstorms to buy them three minutes.
The passengers would then come to know that there were some young and immature
federation soldiers who, in order to buy even one more second, had destroyed their Boltguns
and raised their Chainswords in preparations to charge into the terrifying beast tide.
The passenger would then come to know that there was a low-level cultivator from the
Mountain Sea Sect cruising nearby who immediately rushed over without regards for his life
upon hearing their distress signal and faced the turbulent waves of Ghost Face Mosquitoes as
he hoisted the Anti-Ship Swords of Flames.
But at this hour and at this moment they were completely oblivious to everything.
Inside the temporary tents, some of the passengers were rather indignant and were constantly
’’Wasn't it just a small scuffle with demon beasts? How come it had drawn such a big scene?
Who knows how long it will take!’’
And their loved ones, those weak and frail seniors, the mothers embracing their babies... were
already drifting to sleep under the protection of the federation army and the cultivators.
Whereas, inside a few white tents nearby, surgical operations were being intensely carried out
as a dozen young and immature soldiers, who were about the same age as Li Yao, had some of
their limbs removed and replaced with spiritual prosthetics, becoming a ’’Federation Disabled
And despite being completely blind to what the brutal future had in store for them, these
soldiers were, nevertheless, glowing with a calm smile.
In contrast, Li Yao was curled up in a corner of a platform in the station as he looked at the
passengers and the federation army with an extremely confused expression in his eyes.
Although not the slightest bit of change could be found on his exterior, his brain had already
been burning for three hours. Currently, it was as if he was only a curled up shell, while his
spirit was still immersed in those soul-stirring three minutes...
Where seven cultivators had come forward and took the armored coach into the beast tide!
Where the red-eyed officer with a half-naked body and wings of light spread across his back
carried the Taiyi Lightning Railgun on his shoulder and transformed into a ball of lightning
that tore away the heaven and the earth!
Where the soldiers from the federation army had destroyed their Thunderfire Boltguns, hoisted
their Chainsword, and emitted a final battle cry with soaring murderous aura!
Where the Mountain Sea Sect's cultivator had brandished the Anti-Ship Swords of Flames with
indomitable will and charged forward towards the demon clan giant at full speed!
Blood seething scenes, one by one, like bright stars, constantly flashed in the depths of Li Yao's
Whereas, tsunami-like roars resounded in his ears:
’’Ladies and gentlemen, let's fight side by side!’’
’’Evil bastards, cultivators are here! Come here to die!’’
These scenes... these roars... had congealed into an inexplicable wave that fiercely attacked the
depths of his brain, so much that his mouth became parched and his tongue felt scorched, his
breathing became erratic, his heart rate had accelerated to ten times than the usual, and his
’’Pineal Gland’’ was aching in pain to the point that he had an urge to use the Black Wing Sword
to split open the top of his head.
Li Yao could not help but let out a roar as he involuntarily clenched his fists tightly. All the
muscles in his body started contracting, and each of his bones made ’’Crack Crack’’ noises as if
they were about to pierce his skin and come out!
’’What's going on? My brain seems to be frantically secreting an unknown hormone which is
making my internal organs, each strand of my muscles, every blood vessel, and even every cell
operate in madness! The frequency of their movements is getting faster and faster I might not
be able to hold on any longer!’’
’’I-is this ’’
Li Yao clenched his teeth, line after line of bulging blue veins as thick as earthworms appeared
as power frantically surged into his veins like a torrential tide, cleaning his body round after
’’Brother Tao, I didn't expect you to be so formidable. You have actually repaired the Taiyi
Lightning Railgun at the critical moment, allowing the soldiers to repulse the demon beasts'
attack and save the entire train!’’
Just as Li Yao's spirit was burning and his blood was boiling, a sharp and clear female voice
suddenly floated into his ear.
’’Taiyi Lightning Railgun’’ these three words had taken Li Yao by surprise for a moment. He
narrowed his eyes to look towards the source of the sound.
It was Jiang Tao and Gu Lili.
Jiang Tao slightly smiled. Just as he was about to speak, he suddenly noticed the nearby Li Yao
as a sliver of embarrassment appeared on his face. After a bit of thinking, he walked towards Li
Yao in large strides.
’’Brother, I could have never imagined that even though you have such an ordinary appearance,
you would have such quick hand speed and would even be able to repair the Thunderfire
Boltgun. Sure enough, a still tongue makes a wise head . I am Jiang Tao from the Jiang
Family. Let's be friends!’’
Jiang Tao extended his hand towards Li Yao with a smile.
Although Jiang Tao was a descendant of the Jiang Family, he was from a branch family. Since
there were many competitors in the family, he had limited resources in his hands.
Whereas, even though Gu Lili was not a cultivator, her father was a local tyrant who owned
several crystal mines. Once their relationship was completely fixed, Gu Lili's family would
provide him with massive amounts of resources to help him cultivate.
Therefore, Jiang Tao was pursuing Gu Lili with everything he had.
When it was time to ’’step forward’’, he only did so in order to show off his heroic spirit in front
of Gu Lili, but little did he expect that it was the beast tide outbreak they had encountered, one
which almost caused him to pee his pants.
And as luck would have it, Gu Lili didn't know the truth and it was impossible for the army to
declassify everything in such a short period of time, so in order to brag about himself in front of
his girlfriend, Jiang Tao had shoved everything that Li Yao had done unto himself.
But he had never imagined that he would encounter the person who had truly done it at such a
timely moment; his bragging was almost exposed.
’’After all, as a cultivator, to get cold feet is certainly nothing glorious. Perhaps several
competitors in the family would even hype it up without restraint, which would certainly ruin
’’The train soldiers are insignificant, but this hick is going to be a little troublesome. Although
he may be rustic, he is still a new student of the Grand Desolate War Institution's Refining
Department and is, after all, a student of the Nine Elite Universities. Not to mention that his
hand speed is so quick, one would never know when he could soar to the top and become an
’’For such a person, it would be better to become friends before he gains fame. Once we are
friends, everything will naturally be settled!’’
Usually, Jiang Tao would flaunt a little, but he was, after all, still a descendant of a big family,
thus he was not too stupid. After analyzing the gains and losses clearly, he immediately
thought of becoming friends with Li Yao.
But, Li Yao's mind was in chaos; it was as if a volcano was about to erupt. His seven emotions
and six desires were heightened to the extreme, as such he simply could not control himself.
Before the brain had issued any command, four words, like flying swords, shot out like
lightning from the depths of his throat:
’’Get the hell out!’’
Jiang Tao's complexion changed. Not so long ago, on the crystal train, the seven cultivators had
a contemptuous look in their eyes towards him, as they had regarded him as a deserter, which
already brought him extreme shame and anger.
He had never thought that even an ordinary person would dare to yell at him.
Glancing around, he discovered many soldiers patrolling. Forcing back his anger, Jiang Tao
pulled out a blank gold transfer card from his bosom and handed it over.
’’We are both learning to refine, so why do you keep people away? From the way you dress, your
family should be a commoner family. Otherwise, you would not have ended up in the Grand
Desolate War Institution's Refining Department. However, learning to refine requires a great
deal of money. If you want to rise above the others, you need to take private lessons on top of
the normal studies. This card has 200,000 bucks. Take it and spend it as you wish. Think of it as
me supporting a junior. Hahaha.’’
Jiang Tao stuffed the gold transfer card into Li Yao's bosom and moved closer to his ear as he
spoke in a suppressed voice, ’’But you can not talk about what happened on the train.
'Misfortune comes from the mouth' as a student of the Nine Elite Universities, you should
know what these four words mean, right?’’
