Chapter 104: Death Upon Core Formation
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
At that moment, a very abrupt voice sounded inside the cave.
“Good disciple, you did not disappoint me.”
Hong Longguang’s face changed dramatically as he looked in the direction of
the voice. “Master, I have just advanced to the Golden Core stage. Are you in such a hurry?”
In the corner, a puddle of blood wriggled and formed a figure, which was Elder Blood River.
“I’ve waited for more than a hundred years. Naturally, I can’t wait any longer.” The Blood River Elder smiled and did not hide anything.
“Master, can you tell me what you plan to do with me?” Hong Longguang asked in a low voice.
“To make you into a Blood God Son, of course.” Blood River Elder looked as if victory was in his grasp. He didn’t care at all.
The Blood God Son was a realm lower than its master. In other words, Golden Core cultivators could only have Blood God Sons at the ninth level of the Foundation Establishment realm.
Therefore, disciples were allowed to cultivate to the Golden Core stage on their own before being refined into a Blood God Son, so they could have a Blood God Son at the same realm as themselves.
These Golden Core Elders dared not advance their own cultivation realm, so they could only use this method to increase their own power.
When they had enough Golden Core Blood God Sons, they could even fight against the Nascent Soul realm.
The difference between the Foundation Establishment realm and the Nascent Soul realm was too great. Quantity was no longer effective. If they wanted to resist the sect master of the Nascent Soul realm, they must nurture enough Golden Core Blood God Sons.
Although it would take a long time to nurture enough Golden Core Blood God Sons and there was little hope, no one was willing to sit and wait for death. Even if there was only a glimmer of hope, they would try.
The Blood God Sect Master was well aware of this, but he did not stop them. He even intentionally encouraged them.
In a sense, what these Golden Core elders did was also benefiting the sect master.
Hearing this simple and straightforward reason, Hong Longguang clenched his fists. “Even if I self-destruct my Golden Core, I won’t let you succeed!”
Elder Blood River shook his head. “From the moment we joined the Blood God
Sect, we had no choice and could not resist at all.”
As he spoke, Elder Blood River was also full of helplessness.
Hong Longguang, who was using the Seven Emotions and Six Desires Demon
Art to sense emotions, found that what the other party said was actually true!
“Since we’re master and disciple, I’ll let you die knowing that there is a huge hidden danger in our blood bodies that can be controlled by others, like this.”
After saying that, Elder Blood River made a hand seal.
Hong Longguang suddenly found that he could not move his body.
It was as if there was a membrane separating his soul from his body, making them independent entities that could not connect with each other.
“What’s going on!” Hong Longguang was terrified and struggled to regain control of his body.
He couldn’t understand why his body would reject his soul.
“Disciple, don’t waste your effort. Let me see what secrets you have.”
Elder Blood River had a sinister smile on his face as he walked slowly to Hong Longguang, reaching out to grab him.
A phantom figure floated out of Hong Longguang’s body and into his hand.
“No, please spare me, Master…” Hong Longguang begged loudly, his face filled with fear.
No one could accept that the fruits of their hard work in cultivation would be taken away from them in an instant.
Elder Blood River paid no attention to his pleas.
“Soul Searching Technique!”
Hong Longguang’s soul let out a tragic scream, his expression twisted in pain.
The Soul Searching Technique was an evil spell used to take someone’s memories.
The victim would lose his memories and become an idiot, while the user would gain access to his memories.
As the Soul Searching Technique was used, Hong Longguang’s memories appeared in Elder Blood River’s mind.
“My little disciple has a way to exchange for blood essence?”
Elder Blood River, who had obtained Hong Longguang’s entire memory, was slightly surprised, then smiled and said, “Whatever secrets you have, in the end, they will all be mine.
“However, since he has such refined blood, his cultivation should have progressed as well.”
Thinking of this, Elder Blood River smiled happily and clenched his fist.
Hong Longguang’s stunned soul shattered like a balloon, disappearing into nothingness.
In the outside world, the Golden Core phenomenon disappeared, but everyone was still worried. They were eager to know the outcome.
Hong Longguang disappeared like the previous new Golden Core cultivators, or had he become the seventh elder?
Zhang Chen retracted his gaze. Just as he turned around and entered the cave abode, he felt the vibration of the storage bag.
“Huh?” Zhang Chen reached out in confusion and took out a red jade pendant.
This was the Bloodline Jade Pendant that Hong Longguang had given him previously to find descendants of his bloodline.
The jade pendant flashed with red light and Hong Longguang’s voice sounded.
“Seventh Junior Brother, when you hear this, it means that I’m already dead. I hope you will keep your promise and pass on my belongings to my descendants.”
Zhang Chen furrowed his brow tightly. Hong Longguang has just broken through to the Golden Core realm and is already dead?
He knew Elder Blood River would take action, but he didn’t expect it to happen so soon.
This was truly not giving him any chance at all!
“When I advance to the Golden Core realm in the future, I definitely can’t be in the Blood God Sect. Moreover, I have to accumulate more power.”
Zhang Chen muttered softly and put away the jade pendant. He turned around and walked towards the Technique Exchange Pavilion.
This was a sign of insecurity.
Hong Longguang’s death gave Zhang Chen a strong sense of crisis. With such a huge gap in strength, he had no choice but to learn more cultivation techniques and coping strategies.
An hour later, Zhang Chen returned to the cave with a jade slip in his hand.
[Detected cultivation technique, Blood Shadow Clone Technique. Splits the soul body and has a clone similar to his cultivation level for a short period of time.] [Side effect: A second personality is born and fights for control of the body.]
[Please wait a moment, system modification is in progress…]
[Ding! Modification complete. Side effects canceled.]
He had been quite impressed when he saw his opponent use this technique before.
After mastering it, he would have a Foundation Establishment helper, and the higher his own cultivation level, the stronger the assistance.
So he deliberately chose this cultivation technique.
Although the modifier did not show any side effects, after watching the technique, Zhang Chen found that it required a powerful soul to learn.
Otherwise, during the process of tearing the soul, one’s own soul would not be
able to bear it and would dissipate.
Zhang Chen, who had the Divine Forging Technique and had devoured many souls, naturally had no problem with his divine sense being comparable to the ninth level of the Foundation Establishment realm.
Meanwhile, as the Elder of Blood River was preparing to turn Hong Longguang’s body into a Blood God Son, several figures appeared in the cave.
The other elders of the Blood God Sect had arrived.
Seeing the visitors, Elder Blood River narrowed his eyes slightly and asked in a low voice, “What are you here for?”
The one who spoke was Patriarch Black Blood. “It’s been a long time since any disciple in the sect formed his Gold Core. As for the reason, everyone knows it very well.
“We hope that you, Blood River, will let the newly Core Formation cultivator show up and reduce the resistance of the other disciples.”
Elder Blood River sneered, “1 don’t have any Core Formation disciples under me anymore. What benefits do I have from doing this?”
“Next time we take in disciples, we will let you choose one first. How about that?” Black Blood promised.
Blood River thought for a moment.. ‘Yes!”
