Under the Witchcloud Mountain Range.
In the middle of a desolate forest.
Di Jing stood in mid-air and looked down.
He could see many beasts busy trying to activate something.
At this moment, a fire demon came in front of Di Jing and whispered.
“Sir, the progress is quite fast, but it will still take some time.
I’ve already tried my best. ”
“Let’s continue,” Di Jing said slowly. “We can slow down, but we can’t afford any accidents.”
His words were authoritative, and even the flames feared him.
After the fire demon left, Di Jing looked up into the sky.
“Who is it that can cast his gaze over?
Was it a coincidence or has this place been targeted?
As long as it’s not Kunlun, everything is fine. But…”
Di Jing’s gaze turned gloomy as he planned to do something.
“Kunlun will eventually come.
The Ninth Summit.
It’s very strong. It’s just…
The Grand Desolate World is so big. There must be people who is eyeing on them, right?”
Di Jing didn’t think that he would be able to defend himself against the future troubles, but he definitely wouldn’t sit back and do nothing.
He wanted to become the winner in this game.
Jiang Lan sat at the edge of the pavilion and watched the sunrise.
He had already started on his own Dao path. Right now, he wasn’t observing the changes in heaven and earth, only calming his heart.
This would enable him to continue his closed-door cultivation, which might last for a long time.
His Senior Sister had returned to cultivate. It should be time for her to break through to become a True Immortal.
The defeat she experienced from the challenge made her feel that as long as she crossed a major realm, she would become the final winner.
Furthermore, she was not far from a True Immortal. Thus, it was sufficient for her to advance to become a True Immortal by entering closed-door training for a period of time.
Jiang Lan also wanted to try advancing to become a mid-stage Celestial Immortal.
He was already extremely close to it the last time he started on his own Dao path.
Perhaps he could enter the mid-stage Celestial Immortal Realm before his Senior Sister entered the True Immortal Realm.
As for the rest, he didn’t need to worry about it for now.
The Demon Race and the Heavenly Human Race were not in his consideration.
His master could still protect him.
Now, he needed to focus on his seclusion and advance.
After watching the sunrise, Jiang Lan began to read some books, such as the ‘Celestial Immortal Realm’ and other books on other knowledge and spell techniques.
He would read the books he had read before again.
Perhaps he might gain some new insights.
He returned to the Netherworld Cave and began cultivating.
He activated his golden body and attempted to fully activate it.
Time passed like flowing water, day after day, year after year.
Jiang Lan never stopped cultivating.
He would watch the sun rise at dawn, read books and do chores in the morning.
In the evening, he would watch the sun set and enter the Netherworld Cave to cultivate his golden body.
He watched the entrance of the Netherworld erupt bit by bit, watching it erupt to its limits.
He then watched it calm down and return to its normal state.
During this time, he made all the preparations to ensure that he was well guarded against the movements made by the demons.
However, the demons did not seem to have acted at all.
The entrance to the Netherworld hadn’t changed at all.
It was unusually calm.
It was so calm that Jiang Lan wasn’t used to it.
In the blink of an eye, the power of his golden body had reached a whole new level.
It seemed like it wouldn’t take long for him to advance to mid-stage Celestial Immortal.
“It’s been 690 years since I entered the sect. Maybe in a few years, I can advance to the mid-stage Celestial Immortal Realm.”
His Senior Sister had yet to come out of seclusion.
Therefore, he didn’t have any other plans.
Five years later.
In the Netherworld Cave, Jiang Lan’s body was faintly discernible, as if he was stuck in a certain place, unable to make the golden light brighter.
He was trying his best to make the golden light even brighter.
The light started to change, flickering between dark and bright.
A moment later, a bright light appeared beneath Jiang Lan.
Then, it quickly spread throughout his body.
The dim light receded, and a new light covered his entire body.
A tremendous amount of power surged forth as the sound of thunder rumbled within his body.
Mid-stage Celestial Immortal.
He had achieved it.
Jiang Lan only opened his eyes after the power subsided. He tried to feel his own power.
“A mid-stage Celestial Immortal is far superior to an early-stage Celestial Immortal. If I were to encounter the black dragon previously with my current strength, I might be able to end him off easily.”
He had a feeling that he could crush his opponent with one punch.
Of course, he couldn’t trust this feeling completely. He had to be prepared to deliver the second and third punch at any time to prevent underestimating his enemy and bringing trouble to himself.
It was just that he could not use the Power Of Nine Tribulations and Power Of Nine Tribulations at that time.
However, even though he was only using the three moves of the Dragon Saber Art, he did not need to use the third slash.
He had won steadily.
With his calm mood after advancing, he began to familiarize himself with the power of mid-stage Celestial Immortal Relam.
This time, he needed to familiarize himself with it for a long time. The more he understood and learned, the more he needed to familiarize himself with his knowledge and techniques everytime he advanced.
However, the severity of the matter would not bring too much trouble.
After spending a year familiarizing himself with his new strength, Jiang Lan completed his seclusion.
It had been 26 years.
In another four years, it would be seven hundred years.
He needed to bring some wine for his master.
Jiang Lan stood up and looked at the entrance to the Netherworld.
“It’s been a little quiet recently. It’s not because of my cultivation realm’s advancement that the aura seems to have weakened, but it has really become much quieter.”
“It’s not normal.”
After hesitating for a moment, he walked towards the Netherworld’s Entrance.
His master had said that a Human Immortal could look inside.
Now that he was already at mid-stage Celestial Immortal Realm, there shouldn’t be any problems.
In the past, for the sake of not causing trouble for himself, he hadn’t looked inside.
But it was different now.
He felt that there was something wrong with the entrance to the Netherworld.
At this moment, he arrived in front of the ancient well. As he approached, he felt that he had passed through a barrier left behind by his master.
It was to prevent others from approaching. Of course, it was also to prevent him from approaching in the past.
If one whose cultivation was insufficient, attempted to approach it, it would bring about fatal danger.
Things were different now. His master should know that he was a Celestial Immortal. It would be much safer even if he got closer.
There was no need to worry him.
Standing by the ancient well, Jiang Lan lowered his eyebrows and looked down.
It was as if he could see everything in the world.
Then, his mind trembled as though something was sucking his mind away.
In the blink of an eye, Jiang Lan stabilized his mind and escaped the strange influence.
It was not serious, but not simple either.
If a Human Immortal had come to check, he would not have gotten away so easily.
His heart was steady. The others…
The others were unable to enter the Netherworld Entrance, so it didn’t affect anything.
When Jiang Lan returned to his senses, what he saw was no longer something illusory.
But what was in the ancient well was completely different from what he had expected.
He originally thought that he would see an aura of the Netherworld like water in an ancient well.
But that was not the case at all.
There wasn’t any well water in the ancient well at the entrance to the Netherworld, and it wasn’t the ancient well that entered one’s eyes as one would expect, and it was instead a space that was filled with tension.
It was as if it was breathing.
Furthermore, once he came close to the well.
It was as if a world was crashing into him.
“So this is the entrance to the Netherworld.”
Jiang Lan was shocked.
The two worlds would converge at any moment and connect.
The eruption came from the Netherworld being too close to the well.
However, he could also see that the well was filled with seals.
There were both seals inside and outside.
The seals seemed to be weakening, but it was still not something that the people inside could easily pass through.
It was the same outside.
Jiang Lan knew a lot about array formations, but even so, he still couldn’t enter.
As he relaxed, he felt as if the Netherworld was distancing itself from him.
In addition, he saw some distortions appear in the void of the Netherworld.
“It’s indeed abnormal.”
