My Senior Brother is Too Steady - Chapter 560 - The Wind and Clouds Are Rising, Changgeng Wielding Little Chess
Chapter 560: The Wind and Clouds Are Rising, Changgeng Wielding Little Chess
Li Changshou naturally knew that the Jade Emperor would not covet any treasures.
When he said that he was fated with the Heavenly Courts, he actually meant that the twenty-four heavens could complete the Heavenly Courts and open the Nine Heavens to the 33 Heavens.
In the original Great God-Conferment Tribulation, the one that evolved the twenty-four heavens was Randeng, while the other was the Buddhist Sect that had yet to appear.
Randeng used this to establish his position in the Buddhist Sect and allowed the Buddhist Sect to have a say in the Heavenly Courts.
Now, there was a ninety-seven percent chance that the twenty-four Sea-Calming Divine Pearls would not fall into Randeng’s hands. If Zhao Gongming could understand the key to this place and use this treasure to evolve the twenty-four heavens, he would create a Heavenly Courts that did not have much connection with the future Buddhists.
It would depend on how confident Zhao Gongming was.
However, at that moment, when the Jade Emperor’s incarnation, Quan Dong, said that, Zhao Gongming’s heart trembled.
Master Zhao’s eyes were first filled with shock and excitement. Then, he pondered and hesitated. Then, he became decisive…
If the Jade Emperor accepted his treasures and could give the immortals of Jie School another chance to survive in the Great Tribulation, so what if his strength was greatly reduced?
No matter how powerful the treasure was, it was ultimately just a worldly possession. At most, he would learn from the Perfected Taiyi of Chan School next door and look for Yu Ding.
Doesn’t Zhao Gongming have anyone to protect him?
Nothing can beat a sentence like ‘Golden Spirit Save Me’!
Therefore, Zhao Gongming made up his mind and said in a low voice, “If you like it, General, this treasure…”
Li Changshou called out softly. The Jade Emperor immediately knew that Zhao Gongming was overthinking. He immediately placed the pearl back in front of Li Changshou.
The corners of Quan Dong’s mouth revealed a faint smile. “Brother Gongming, don’t misunderstand. I said that this treasure is fated with the Heavenly Courts. It seems that it can allow the Heavenly Courts to take another step forward. I rarely fight for the Heavenly Courts. Most of them are guarding the Lingxiao Hall. I can’t use such treasures.”
The immortals of Jie School heaved a sigh of relief.
Zhao Gongming was puzzled. “What does my pearl have to do with the Heavenly Courts?”
Li Changshou’s fingers swayed slightly. The twenty-four Sea-Calming Divine Pearls flew back to Zhao Gongming and circled slowly.
Zhao Gongming seemed to have understood something.
The people at the side did not dare to disturb him. After all, this might be Zhao Gongming’s opportunity.
Not long after, Zhao Gongming frowned and said, “It seems that I have to study this Dharma treasure properly later.”
Changshou took the opportunity to change the topic and raised his glass to drink with everyone.
The key to whether the Sea-Calming Divine Pearl could become Zhao Gongming’s opportunity was the Heavenly Dao. If the Heavenly Dao gave him some guidance or showed the effect of the Sea-Calming Divine Pearl, it would not be difficult for Zhao Gongming to understand it with his comprehension.
Although Li Changshou knew the general direction, he did not dare to say too much. Secondly, it was still a deduction. Therefore, he did not say it directly.
He had to be careful not to get involved with karma.
The male immortals exchanged toasts and shifted the topic away from the Great Tribulation. The immortals of the two sects were still happy.
A few fairies chuckled and sent a voice transmission. Kong Xuan and Yun Xiao were talking about something. There were some Dao runes around the two of them, and they seemed to be discussing the Dao…
Li Changshou quickly took out some trinkets and officially promoted the Battle God Card.
Hence, the scene quickly turned into the Three Sects’ immortals playing cards after bringing the Jade Emperor into wine. Fortunately, they did not use the position of the legitimate gods of the Heavenly Courts.
Three days passed.
The Minor Chiliocosm was extremely stable. With the power of the Taiji Painting and the Grand Pure One secretly attacking, it was naturally 90% stable.
Apart from the fact that the two Saints of the Western Sect had been alarmed when Xu Bodhi was plotted against, there was no other movement after that.
On the other side… he gave up very decisively.
Li Changshou was ready. He entered the spherical numinous treasure again. His spiritual will entered the spiritual platform of the Void Bodhi and projected the appearance of the Maitreya again.
From his aura to his expression, to his habitual movements and smile, Li Changshou tried his best to pull up all the details.
“Do you understand?”
The Void Bodhi’s Dao heart trembled. His essence soul ‘opened’ again, and his expression was filled with exhaustion.
At that moment, he had yet to notice the abnormality in his Dao heart. Over the past three days, he had been constantly thinking. He had thought about all the possibilities that he could think of and finally came up with a bold idea…
“Are you really my Eldest Senior Brother?”
Li Changshou maintained his smile and squinted slightly. He looked at the Void Bodhi’s essence soul.
In terms of psychological games…
A moment later, the Void Bodhi smiled bitterly and asked, “Is this Teacher’s arrangement?”
Generally speaking, the problem at that moment was a trap. Li Changshou did not know if the Void Bodhi and Maitreya had obtained disciples from the same Saint. After all, the Western Sect had two Saints.
Therefore, Li Changshou was still smiling. His smile became even stranger.
The Void Bodhi slowly sighed and closed its eyes again.
“Eldest Senior Brother, if you don’t kill me, you will definitely need me. Eldest Senior Brother, please tell me. You and I are both disciples of the Western Sect. We also cultivated on the spiritual mountain. Although we had a competition in secret, we did not have any grudges. I’m also willing to go through fire and water for the Western Sect and serve you, Senior Brother.”
“Very good.” Maitreya extended his right hand.
The Void Bodhi pretended not to understand. However, when he saw that his Eldest Senior Brother’s smile was gradually fading, his Dao heart subconsciously tightened.
After another round of silence, Maitreya was about to slowly put down his right hand.
A hint of struggle flashed in the Void Bodhi’s eyes. However, he still pointed at his forehead. A gray figure flew out from the glabella of his essence soul and condensed into a gray light spot that was held by Maitreya.
A drop of blood essence flew out of Void Bodhi’s forehead. Li Changshou formed a complicated seal with both hands, and the blood essence instantly condensed into a drop-shaped Blood Stone.
The seal did not stop. Chains appeared around the Blood Stone.
The Demon Emperor’s Qi-Concealing Divine Art!
The wisp of gray gas flew out of Void Bodhi’s chest and entered the blood stone. It turned into the phantom of the Void Bodhi and was completely imprisoned by the blood stone.
From then on, if he wanted to kill the Void Bodhi Primordial Spirit in the future, he only needed to activate the technique to burn the Blood Stone and the Void Bodhi Primordial Spirit would collapse.
At the Void Bodhi Spirit Platform, the “Maitreya” was about to dissipate. The boring voice entered the Void Bodhi Dao heart again.
“Recuperate here. When the time is right, I will let you out. If Teacher asks, or if we meet under other circumstances, you will know how to deal with it. If I don’t take the initiative to look for you, I’ll pretend that nothing happened.”
Void Bodhi’s eyes widened when he heard that.
Isn’t this what Teacher meant?!
At this moment, I’m just a pawn in Maitreya’s hands?
The Void Bodhi looked angry. Then, he sighed and smiled bitterly.
In the future, the senior and junior brothers on the surface would be master and servant in secret. The initiative would be completely in Maitreya’s hands.
The surrounding starlight flickered again. This time, the illusion dissipated. The Void Bodhi’s essence soul sank into the endless darkness. Its six senses were sealed again.
In the ball, Li Changshou looked at the “Soul Stone” in his palm. He wrapped it with Yin and Yang Qi and placed it in a ring. Then, he turned around and left the numinous treasure.
He had succeeded.
After today, at the edge of the Chaos Sea,
A ball slowly floated over from the Chaos Sea and exploded in front of the barrier of the Heavenly Dao. It left behind an old Daoist priest whose chest was stained with blood and whose aura was calm.
The fragments of the ball numinous treasure were swept away by the Chaos aura. The restrictions around the Void Bodhi dissipated one after another. He opened his eyes and looked at his surroundings. He immediately used his immortal power to wrap his Dao Body and entered the Chaos Sea.
Void Bodhi recalled the two things that his “Eldest Senior Brother” had told him.
The first thing was that Eldest Senior Brother had taken the initiative to mention that the matter of plotting against Yang Jian had to be matched with Eldest Senior Brother’s arrangements.
The Void Bodhi was not surprised. He had already predicted that this would happen.
Eldest Senior Brother was someone who refused to suffer losses and would take revenge for any grievances. He had been schemed against by Lord Taibai Jinxing previously. How could he not have made countermeasures?
That was very much like Maitreya.
The second thing was that the Void Bodhi took the initiative to ask…
“Senior Brother, how should I explain to Master about my disappearance?”
Eldest Senior Brother’s reply was:
“I placed you at the edge of the Chaos Sea. Didn’t Taibai Jinxing say that I’m the second essence soul of Kun Peng?”
The Void Bodhi immediately understood that the blame should be placed on the back of Kun Peng. Kun Peng had captured him and used its extreme speed to escape from the Primordial World to interrogate him about the Western Sect. That way, he could barely settle the matter with his teacher.
Speaking of which, Eldest Senior Brother was really bold. It was a taboo for fellow disciples to kill each other. Eldest Senior Brother directly did it and even succeeded.
It seemed that there were traces of Eldest Senior Brother’s rumors that he had heard since ancient times.
The Void Bodhi circled around the Chaos Sea for a while and returned to the Primordial World from another direction. However, just as he entered the Heavenly Dao barrier, his Dao heart suddenly trembled. He hurriedly looked at himself internally.
What did that mean?
The Void Bodhi looked at the wisps of gray aura that had taken root in his Dao heart. His face suddenly turned pale.
No matter how high the cultivation level of the Qi Refinement cultivators was, they were afraid of having mental demons. They were even more afraid of being devoured by the mental demons.
At that moment, waves of grayish-black aura almost engulfed his Dao heart.
Waves of mixed emotions rose in Void Bodhi’s heart. Sorrow, anger, and killing intent almost engulfed him.
Where did this mental demon come from?!
The Void Bodhi pinched his fingers and deduced. After charging into the Heavenly Dao barrier, he immediately sat down to cultivate. Golden rays of light floated around him, and his forehead was gradually covered in cold sweat.
“Eldest Senior Brother, you’re so ruthless!”
“My Dao heart has almost been destroyed by you. I’m afraid it will be difficult for me to take another step forward in the future! ”
The Void Bodhi opened its eyes, and the anger in its eyes quickly disappeared.
Something is amiss…
This is not my mental demon. This is a demonic thought that was forcefully planted by someone!
The Extraterrestrial Demons, the edge of the Chaos Sea… Could it be that the rumors that were spreading around previously were not rumors? Could it be that Eldest Senior Brother is really one!?!
The Void Bodhi’s pupils constricted. He hid his body and fled to the edge of the trichiliocosm with a heart filled with shock. He wanted to choose a place to cultivate and carefully think about this matter.
If that was the case, the Western Sect would probably be in trouble…
In fact, Eldest Senior Brother would gradually devour him!
“Ah, I’m already being controlled. I can’t do anything.”
Half a month after releasing the Void Bodhi at the edge of the Chaos Sea,
Li Changshou and the Immortal of the Dao Sect who had attacked this time quietly “disbanded” after they swore a Heavenly Dao oath to keep the secret.
Although Li Changshou did not want Yun Xiao to make an oath, he could not reject Yun Xiao’s offer.
Fairy Yun Xiao did not want to make things special. She hoped that Li Changshou would purely see her as one of the four outer sect disciples of Jie School.
Of course, in private, the two of them were already proper Dao companions who often held hands and strolled for a few hours without letting go.
Li Changshou had put in a lot of effort to arrange this oath.
When everyone kept a secret together, there would be more friendship and connections between them.
As long as Perfected Taiyi did not start the group rashly, the chances of a huge battle between the two sects would be at least 10% lower!
That could be considered half a plan.
When Yun Xiao and Qiong Xiao returned to the Three-Immortal Island together, Li Changshou had also instructed them to pay more attention to Brother Zhao’s condition.
Li Changshou was a little worried that the Jade Emperor’s words would affect the operation of the calamity. He would let Master Zhao enter the calamity in advance and let the Sea-Calming Divine Pearl belong to the Heavenly Courts.
Although the possibility was low, Li Changshou still chose to play it safe.
Come to think of it…
Would Void Bodhi really be the future monkey’s teacher?
In the Great White Hall, Li Changshou’s immortal senses were focused on the Heavenly General paper effigy who was leaving with the three-pointed, double-edged spear. He was thinking about that deep question.
The probability was quite high. After all, in the Primordial World, only the Void Bodhi was related to the “Bodhi”.
Moreover, the Void Bodhi had become his puppet. In the future, he could use it to plot against the Western Sect or the Buddhist Sect. As long as the Void Bodhi did not cause trouble for himself, he would not easily destroy such a pawn.
Previously, he had Wen Jing’s future wife. Now, he had the Void Bodhi…
His infiltration of the Western Sect was quite effective.
Thank you for your help, Teacher!
He could not do too much of that. After all, the Saint was not his Dharma treasure. If he often asked for things that were beyond the knowledge of the Dao, he would easily ruin the impression his teacher had on him.
Just as Li Changshou was about to return to the Little Qiong Peak, a figure floated over on a cloud outside the Great White Hall. It was naturally the Jade Emperor’s incarnation, the Celestial Thearch.
In the previous banquet, Quan Dong had revealed a few things.
On the way back to the Heavenly Courts with Li Changshou’s paper effigy, Quan Dong came to his senses and was speechless for a while.
Fortunately, Li Changshou explained in time. He said that he was worried that the immortals would unintentionally offend him and expose the Jade Emperor’s identity. Only then did the Jade Emperor heave a sigh of relief.
As long as he did not expose himself, he had to be careful about his pride.
Today, Quan Dong had rushed over again. Li Changshou bet that Ling’e had personally made two packets of spiritual beast spicy meat for Yang Jian.
As expected, Quan Dong rode a cloud and arrived in front of the Great White Hall. He asked to see Li Changshou and was “summoned” into the hall.
When they arrived at the array formation in the deepest part of the Great White Hall, the two of them looked at each other and smiled. Li Changshou returned the bow he had just received and took a middle-aged paper effigy to sit with Quan Dong.
Quan Dong went straight to the point. “Changgeng, I’m here to ask about Yang Jian. How is Yang Jian’s trial going?”
“Your Majesty, please take a look.” Li Changshou took out a thick and large bronze mirror and placed it in front of the two of them.
He pointed at the bronze mirror, and layers of ripples appeared on its surface. Then, a blurry image appeared but it quickly became very clear.
It was a boundless world. The surging demonic aura covered the sun, moon, and stars. Several streams of light chased each other in the sky.
Li Changshou and Quan Dong looked over and saw Yang Jian’s figure in the stream of light.
He was dressed in a somewhat tattered armor. He held a spear in his right hand and a sword with some cracks in it in his left hand. Golden and red streams of light surrounded him. A few drops of blood flowed down from his forehead to his face. Most of his long hair was stained with demon blood.
He opened his mouth and seemed to let out a furious roar. His body suddenly sped up, leaving behind afterimages and layers of spiritual energy fluctuations. He immediately chased after a snake demon!
The snake demon looked ruthless. It turned around and spat out poisonous fog that filled the sky.
The spear darted forward and the sword beam slashed horizontally. In the next moment, demon blood filled the sky. Yang Jian’s figure pierced through the snake demon’s huge body. The tip of the spear pierced through the snake demon’s essence soul and shattered it with a sword…
Quan Dong asked softly, “Why is there only the image and no sound?”
“Your Majesty, this is what Perfected Yu Ding saw. Perfected Yu Ding might have forgotten to open the restrictions of the little bronze mirror.”
“I see.” Quan Dong nodded and stared at the situation where Yang Jian was chasing after a few demons.
After a while, the battle ended.
Yang Jian killed three demons, and the last one escaped to outer space.
Yang Jian had to rush back to deal with the three demons’ corpses so that the demonic aura would not spurt out and injure the mortals there.
Yang Jian also understood the essence of the Eight-Nine Arcane Art. After he quickly dealt with the corpses of the demons, he took out the essence of the Earth Essence on them and cut off their flesh, which had the strongest spiritual energy.
There were a few barbecue racks on the rack. After carefully roasting them, he frowned and endured the discomfort. He ate them one by one to strengthen his blood energy.
Doing what the Magi knew how to do was indeed the correct cultivation method of the Eight-Nine Arcane Art.
Li Changshou praised, “You’re really brave.”
Quan Dong’s eyes were filled with light. He praised, “I have the demeanor that you had when you killed demons, Minister Changgeng.”
Li Changshou was rendered speechless.
Why does that sound like he has a direct relationship with Yang Jian?
“Changgeng,” Quan Dong smiled and said, “This incarnation of mine has landed here. When you want to see Yang Jian’s situation, remember to call me.”
Li Changshou said, “It will only cost some Spirit Stones to maintain this bronze mirror. I have to keep an eye on this matter.”
Quan Dong immediately smiled in satisfaction. He continued to look at the image in the bronze mirror. Yang Jian had quickly disappeared into the horizon and successfully avoided the counterattack of the demon experts.
Li Changshou chuckled in his heart when he saw that. He knew that the Jade Emperor was happy to see him. He left a small portion of his attention there and his main body entered a shallow cultivation state.
At that moment, Li Changshou did not know if Master Zhao had comprehended anything from the Sea-Calming Divine Pearl.
However, he understood.
The Heavenly Dao was constantly replenishing itself and perfecting itself. The Heavenly Dao had a goal that was almost ‘selfish’.
To ordinary living beings and even longevity immortals, the Heavenly Dao was impartial. It would only follow the rules of the Heavenly Dao and protect the stability of the world.
However, if one stood on the shore of the river of time and looked out, they would be able to see the Heavenly Dao grow from small to full.
The Heavenly Dao had a core. It was a treasure that could not be perfected. Only Connate lifeforms and Connate Cardinal treasures could reach the true perfection realm.
That was also the reason why the top mighty figures other than the Great Daoist Master Xuan Du were almost all Connate lifeforms.
Can the Heavenly Dao reach perfection?
The variables would continue to exist, and the Heavenly Dao’s flaws would continue to exist…
Li Changshou thought about that and gradually immersed most of his attention into the Great Dao. He wandered the world and the past.
Soon, the trial plot arranged by Bai Ze appeared. Yang Jian was led to a ferocious place. After fighting for months, he emerged and subdued a three-headed divine flood dragon. The divine flood dragon turned into an ancient divine weapon with three pointed, double-edged spears.
From Perfected Yu Ding and Quan Dong’s perspective, they could not tell that someone had arranged this.
Mr. Bai’s soul of the “Primordial Director” had already begun to awaken.
In the next few decades, Quan Dong spent most of his time in the Great White Hall.
Li Changshou felt that he had taken over the Heavenly Emperor’s position at the last minute. The Jade Emperor of the Heavenly Courts had discussed all kinds of matters with him before deducting a seal with his main body in the Lingxiao Hall.
Most of the time, the Jade Emperor’s incarnation and Li Changshou’s paper effigy were looking at the bronze mirror in the depths of the Great White Hall.
That made Li Changshou feel a little embarrassed to ask Fairy Yun Xiao out.
Yang Jian’s cultivation level could be considered fast. At that moment, his combat strength was already on par with most Golden Immortal realm Qi Refinement cultivators. His cultivation realm was not far from the Golden Immortal Tribulation.
That day, Quan Dong suddenly said, “Changgeng, do you think that Yang Jian is missing something?”
“What is missing?”
Li Changshou, whose main body was preaching to Ling’e, hurriedly focused his attention there and smiled. “A bright robe?”
“No,” Quan Tong said. “I feel that Yang Jian seems to lack a companion, just like you and Mr. Bai Ze.”
Quan Dong stood up and said, “Minister, please wait a few days. I’ll go back and borrow the power of the Heavenly Dao to investigate. I’ll see if there are any mutants in the Primordial World. I can give them a mount.”
So that was the original position of the Heavenly Hound…
