    Chapter 409: Summoning

    Puqu Dragonlord looked over from the nearly endless distant space.

    "Whoosh."

    Dharmic powers crept out through the void rift and wrapped around the Militant Gold Ax from Qin Yun's hands. Following that, it was pulled through the void rift.

    Qin Yun, Daoist Divine Firmament, and East Sea Skydragon did not dare say a word as they watched this happen.

    After all, they were already very lucky that a mighty figure was willing to help.

    Thankfully, this Ancestral Dragon realm mighty figure enjoyed collecting treasures.

    "Whoosh."

    The Militant Gold Ax tore through the great distance of space and finally reached Puqu Dragonlord. It floated around him and seemed to shrink the closer it got to him. To Puqu Dragonlord, who was more massive than a planet, the Militant Gold Ax appeared like a sesame seed.

    Puqu Dragonlord extended his dragon claws to grab it. Following that he opened his mouth, sending his voice over. "Your wife, Yi Xiao, is inside a Small World. Due to the limitations of the Heavenly Dao, I am unable to enter a Small World."

    Qin Yun also understood.

    The Heavenly Dao protected Small Worlds; therefore, mighty figures like Golden Immortals and Buddhas could not descend into Small Worlds with their true bodies.

    Existences such as the Daoist's Three Pure Ones or Gautama Buddha were peak existences in the endless space-time continuum. Their true bodies were even more powerful but they also could not enter Great Worlds directly. They could only do so with their avatars!

    A mere avatar contained very little strength.

    "This is a Major Void Transference Talisman. It will turn to dust after being used twice." Puqu Dragonlord waved his hand as a purple Dao talisman tore through the void rift, penetrating the barrier of distance known as space. It took a while to reach the Great Chang world.

    When it finally did, Qin Yun reached out to grab it.

    "There is a void mark tagged to the Major Void Transference Talisman," continued Puqu Dragonlord. "Trigger the talisman according to the void mark and you will reach the spot where your wife is being held prisoner! You can then trigger the talisman again once you have your wife to easily escape."

    "Remember, this Major Void Transference Talisman can at most allow an Essence Soul to cast Major Void Transference."

    The voice continued resounding as the void rift closed.

    The communication between both parties had ended.

    Qin Yun looked at the purple Dao talisman in his hand, feeling rather anxious. He looked up at the closed void rift and said worriedly, "I haven't inquired about my daughter."

    "You are not to show any disrespect to a Dragonlord," said East Sea Skydragon immediately. "Can't you ask your Yi Xiao about your daughter after you save her? If there's really nothing you can do, it won't be too late to request Dragonlord's help again. However, given a Dragonlord's temperament, it's not easy for them to just constantly help us juniors. We would definitely need more treasures."

    "There's no rush," said Ancestral Master Zhang as well. "Perhaps your daughter is with Yi Xiao! If there's no other solution, we can think about requesting Dragonlord's assistance. By the way, you should probe the talisman and see where the void mark is."

    "Yes."

    Qin Yun held the purple Dao talisman and cast his senses into it.

    Buzz.

    With Qin Yun's grasp of the void, he could head to other Small Worlds despite the long distance. His perception of his own homeworld, the Great Chang world, was even more acute.

    "What?" Qin Yun was alarmed and furious for he could clearly sense a certain spot.

    "Qin Yun, where is Yi Xiao being imprisoned? Is it in our Great Chang world?" asked Ancestral Master Zhang immediately. East Sea Skydragon was also looking eagerly at Qin Yun.

    "It's in the Great Chang world, and in the Boor Ancestral Sect's territory," said Qin Yun through gritted teeth. "She is imprisoned in a Grotto-heaven of the Boor Ancestral Sect."

    "A Grotto-heaven in the Boor Ancestral Sect?" Ancestral Master Zhang and East Sea Skydragon exchanged looks.

    "Qin Yun, I have an idea." Ancestral Master Zhang's eyes lit up. "This Major Void Transference is different from ordinary Void Transference! The ordinary kind prevents Void Transference when space is frozen, sealed or shattered."

    Qin Yun nodded.

    He knew that because he actually had the means to freeze space. Whenever he did that, ordinary Void Transference means turned ineffective.

    "I know that Major Void Transference is much more brilliant," said Qin Yun. "The Ancient Augury World had an ancient array set up around the entire planet. One could leave it immediately with using a Major Transference Token."

    "Yes."

    Ancestral Master Zhang nodded. "The Major Void Transference of the Ancient Augury World is cast by activating the massive array formation. The token you received is only a catalyst and is actually worth very little. However, the Major Void Transference Dao talisman that Dragonlord gave you can cast Major Void Transference on its own! Although it cannot be used by Skyimmortals, its value is nearly that of a medial-grade Numinous treasure."

    Major Void Transference... was a lot more difficult than Void Transference.

    "The Boor Ancestral Sect is one of the Nine Lineage Fiendish Demons of our Great Chang world," said Ancestral Master Zhang. "It has existed since ancient times and has a deep foundation and roots! In order to defend against us, the Boor Ancestral Sect's array formation seals off space. None of us can enter through Void Transference. As for you Qin Yun, you now have a Major Void Transference Dao talisman, allowing you to enter a Grotto-heaven in their territory. With your present strength, you should be able to directly destroy a Grotto-heaven, am I right?"

    "Yes." Qin Yun nodded.

    Destroying a Grotto-heaven with one strike was something he could do after he reached the Skyimmortal realm.

    "Great." Ancestral Master Zhang revealed a look of delight. "After you save Yi Xiao, destroy that Grotto-heaven immediately and you will naturally appear inside the Boor Ancestral Sect's lair. You are still mortal... so there's no need to worry about suffering Heavenly Tribulation because of any effect it has on mortals. Try your best to destroy the Boor Ancestral Sect's array formation as soon as possible. The more you destroy, the easier it is for us to attack from the outside. When the time comes, we can collectively cause mayhem both inside and outside, giving us the opportunity to uproot the Boor Ancestral Sect. What do you think of this plan?"

    "Very good." Qin Yun nodded without any hesitation. His eyes were filled with killing intent. "They captured and imprisoned my wife. The Boor Ancestral Sect is one of the masterminds behind this."

    "You are eager to save your wife but here I am requesting your help to destroy the Boor Ancestral Sect. I'm truly ashamed about that, but this is a uniquely rare opportunity." Ancestral Master Zhang felt a little apologetic.

    Qin Yun shook his head, clearly not minding it. "The Boor Ancestral Sect is one of the Nine Lineage Fiendish Demons. Every day it exists is a day of trouble! I will naturally do my best if I am given a chance to destroy it. Besides, this plan poses no danger for Xiaoxiao. Even if the Boor Ancestral Sect has deep roots and hides certain secrets, I should be able to deal with them using my present strength. If I encounter a truly terrible situation and am forced to flee, I can still use the Major Void Transference Dao talisman to escape immediately with Xiaoxiao."

    "Yes." Ancestral Master Zhang nodded with a smile. "I'll summon everyone now. Once everyone is gathered, you can take action."

    "Summon everyone?" Qin Yun hesitated for a moment. "I have no suspicions about Human Emperor, Bodhisattva Mahākāśyapa, or Senior Bai, but about Skydemon Palatial Lord..."

    "Haha, you are not familiar with Skydemoness," said Ancestral Master Zhang. "I can guarantee you on my life that she is not in cahoots with the fiendcelestials."

    "Qin Yun, rest assured," said East Sea Skydragon as well. "You haven't cultivated for long but we are friends with Skydemon Palatial Lord, to the point that we would die for each other. We can completely entrust her with our lives."

    Qin Yun was taken aback before he nodded slightly.

    The Great Chang world was in a very good situation at present. However, it had experienced several major wars since ancient times.

    Many experts had perished.

    But since Ancestral Master Zhang and East Sea Skydragon were willing to guarantee it with their lives, Qin Yun naturally trusted them.

    ...

    In a Grotto-heaven inside Mahākāśyapa Monastery.

    Bodhisattva Mahākāśyapa was sitting under a bodhi tree, his body emitting immense golden light that illuminated the entire Grotto-heaven. Many monks sat cross-legged inside the Grotto-heaven, listening to Bodhisattva Mahākāśyapa preach the Dharma.

    "Mahākāśyapa, come to my Divine Firmament Chapter quickly. There is a rare opportunity for us to destroy the Boor Ancestral Sect in one swift strike." Ancestral Master Zhang's voice came through a transmission.

    Bodhisattva Mahākāśyapa immediately stopped his preaching. He stood up and, with one step, vanished.

    The monks were somewhat puzzled but they did not say a word.

    After all, there was no need for Bodhisattva Mahākāśyapa to inform them of his plans.

    ...

    At a street-side tavern in the Yuan Prefecture.

    A fat old man sat there, taking huge bites of a roasted lamb leg. His mouth was lathered in oil from his voracity. He also drank generous mouthfuls of rice wine. A customer looked at the old man's poor table manners with disdain but the fat elder thought nothing of it. While eating, the fat elder glanced at a distant spot where a young beggar looked enviously at him.

    "Hehehe." The fat elder ate happily while he bobbed his head.

    "A good seedling that's born to cultivate in immortality. However, his personality still needs testing," thought the fat elder. He was enjoying his meal, something he loved. This was his greatest hobby since ancient times.

    "Old Bai, quickly come to me. There's a great opportunity for us to destroy the Boor Ancestral Sect." Ancestral Master Zhang's voice transmission reached him.

    "What? Destroy the Boor Ancestral Sect?" The fat elder widened his eyes as he tightened his grip on the lamb leg. He returned with a voice transmission of his own, "How confident are you?"

    "Qin Yun has entered the Skyimmortal realm and has been given a chance to enter the Boor Ancestral Sect's territory directly. There's a high chance of success if we strike a concerted blow from both inside and outside."

    "Alright, I'll be right there!"

    The fat elder threw down a silver fragment and transformed into a whooshing beam that vanished into the sky with the lamb leg in hand. He rushed to the Divine Firmament Chapter while eating.

    ...

    In a brothel in Qian Prefecture.

    A handsome youth in azure-colored clothes was drinking alcohol while listening to a renowned courtesan play the pipa.

    He had a pair of sword-like brows, and his eyes had a foxy charm to them. His skin was even more tender than a young girl's. He looked like a woman disguised as a man but he had an Adam's apple on his throat.

    He took a swig of alcohol as he listened to the music, his eyes seemingly lost, as though he was reminiscing.

    After a music piece finished.

    "Young Master Wang." The renowned courtesan walked over after laying down the pipa. She called out to him another time. "Young Master Wang?"

    Only then did the handsome youth react.

    "Are you done? Come, have some drinks with me." The handsome youth smiled as he pulled the renowned courtesan into his embrace.

    "Your Majesty Skydemoness, come to my Divine Firmament Chapter quickly. There is an opportunity for us to destroy the Boor Ancestral Sect."

    "Destroy the Boor Ancestral Sect?" A purple light flashed subtly in the handsome youth's eyes. He immediately sent a voice transmission back, "Divine Firmament, the Boor Ancestral Sect has existed since ancient times. It's not that easily destroyed. Don't you lie to me."

    "When have I ever lied to you? You will know once you arrive," urged Daoist Divine Firmament.

    "Alright."

    The handsome youth stood up immediately.

    "I have matters to tend to." He casually threw a silver bill and, with a step, his figure phased away before vanishing.

    The renowned courtesan looked at the silver bill in a daze before smiling. She was long accustomed to Young Master Wang's style.

    "Whoosh."

    In the distant horizon, the handsome youth's bound hair unfurled. His clothes turned purple in color as his Adam's apple flattened. His facial contours turned softer as a fiery-red mark appeared in between his brows.

    The purple-robed woman was now an excellent beauty, with enough charm to mesmerize all life. She headed straight for the Divine Firmament Chapter as a purple stream of light.

    ...

    That day, the few top existences of the Great Chang world gathered at the Divine Firmament Chapter.
