    Chapter 279: Senior Disciple Who Returned from the Ninth Heaven; Struck by a Black Pot While Sitting at Home!

    Star Ancestor. 

    This name is not unfamiliar to many of the True Immortal Academy’s elders, and at one point, it represented a terrifying entity. 

    Rumble! 

    Fluctuations arrived elsewhere, signalling the arrival of a great and terrible being that resided within the True Immortal Academy. 

    And from it emerged a hunchbacked figure, Lao Shi – the Old Stone – had arrived in human form. 

    When he appeared, the white-robed girl named Xingzu was surprised. 

    The other elders’ expressions of shock grew as they each began to pay their respects to him. 

    “Lao Shi!” 

    The white-robed girl bowed slightly to Lao Shi. 

    He smiled faintly, “Xingzu girl, there’s no need to be polite. It’s been so many years, and you’ve become younger again.” 

    The girl named Xingzu smiled bitterly and replied, “Don’t tease me, Lao Shi. You know that I can’t help the way my body is.” 

    Hearing this, he chuckled and said nothing more on the matter. 

    He looked at the strange stone below and said, “Speaking of which, this mysterious stone and I are somewhat similar. We’re both rocks. But he has never appeared, and even I can’t see his history.” 

    “Surely, you jest? But if even you can’t see anything, then it really is a helpless matter,” Xingzu said helplessly. 

    “I’m not joking,” Lao Shi chuckled. 

    If it weren’t for this reason, he wouldn’t have come here. 

    In addition to them, many ancient existences with powerful lineages gathered here, including many supremes, almost all of whom came to witness the birth of the mysterious stone. 

    Everyone’s gaze turned towards it! 

    Crack! 

    At the next moment, the strange, brilliant, and crystal-clear stone suddenly trembled, emitting a mysterious aura. Various avenues and rune symbols frequently emerged, each more mysterious and unfathomable than the last. 

    It began to chip off slowly. 

    Cracks appeared on its surface. 

    A brilliant light shone, accompanied by chaotic mist, appearing strange and extraordinary. 

    Mysterious runes flew in the air. 

    As if in a trance, sentient beings seemed to see a mysterious and vast world appearing, where divine birds, rare beasts, and ancient mountains and trees resided. 

    “The vision caused by this birth is so frightening. Could it really be the descendant of a true immortal…” 

    “Even if it isn’t, it’s probably close… It must have a great connection with the immortals. Just its arrival alone is comparable to the visions of several peerless physiques… could it be that the world we’re seeing* is none other than the legendary Ninth Heaven?”

    [*Referring to the visions.]

    “But I heard that the most frightening one to emerge is the Heavenly Maiden from the Wang Family. It was only recently revealed by the Ancient Immortal Wang Family; it remained hidden well before that.” 

    “After all, she is the descendant of the Human Ancestor Hall, born a Saintess. She can’t be compared…” 

    People discussed with each other, their gazes all focused on the strange stone, filled with anticipation, shock, and curiosity… 

    No one stopped this process, as they were all waiting for the creature within the strange stone to be born. 

    Boom! 

    Soon after, with the last crack opening, a divine symbol soared into the sky. 

    Immediately after, a figure wrapped in runes, indistinct and unclear, sat cross-legged in the middle. 

    The most striking thing was the brilliant Immortal Aura emanating from his body. 

    Like an ancient immortal who had been sealed away for ages. 

    From his clothes and radiance alone, it was clear that this man had come from many epochs ago. 

    But which epoch exactly, it was hard to say for the moment. 

    “Finally…” 

    “The familiar spiritual energy of heaven and earth, these familiar rules… I’ve finally left that damned Ninth Heaven.” 

    “Despite having been there for 300 years, it didn’t get any easier, how truly troublesome.” 

    At this moment, the man in the strange stone seemed to be muttering to himself, his emotions ranged from ecstasy to excitement, and perhaps a bit of sentimentality. 

    He spoke in an ancient dialect, a clear indicator that he was not of this era. 

    Even Lao Shi and the others couldn’t understand a word of what he was saying. 

    However, they could scarcely make out a few words… had he been talking about the Ninth Heaven? 

    Lao Shi’s heart skipped a beat, for this language may very well be from that forbidden epoch, long buried by the river of time. 

    Is this man someone from the same era as him? 

    His expression suddenly became extremely complicated, with various thoughts in his mind. 

    “Finally back in the world, but I don’t know how long it’s been outside.” 

    “Only 300 years have passed in the Ninth Heaven, so it shouldn’t have been that long.” 

    The man inside the strange stone was still muttering to himself, seemingly ignoring all the people around him. 

    His attention was fully focused on the memories in his mind. 

    Back then, he was named Qin Wuya, the senior disciple of the Wuyadao Sect. 

    With outstanding talent, his master had high hopes for him, his junior brother admired him, and he had a little junior sister who was wholeheartedly devoted to the Great Dao, as well as a gentle Dao companion who loved him deeply. 

    Everything was perfect. 

    But one day, while he was out on an adventure, he accidentally touched a crack and fell into it. 

    That crack led to the most mysterious place in legend, the Ninth Heaven. 

    He never thought he would be so unlucky, but the Ninth Heaven was also a legendary place that countless people dreamed of, and he happened to encounter it. 

    In Ninth Heaven, he encountered many dangers and opportunities and struggled to survive for three hundred years through life and death. 

    Finally, he found a piece of Immortal Source Stone and managed to seal himself inside it. 

    The Immortal Source Stone was the only thing that could pass through the barrier outside the Ninth Heaven and fall into the outside world. 

    Qin Wuya knew that it was the only way he could leave Ninth Heaven. 

    Only by leaving the Ninth Heaven could he go to find his sect, his master, his dao companion, his junior brother, and his little junior sister, and reunite with them. 

    Thus, he sighed with a heavy heart. However, what he failed to notice was the many people around him who looked at him with varying expressions. 

    ‘There’s something off about this man’s bloodline…” 

    In the eyes of the Lao Shi, Great Dao Runes flashed, as he furrowed his brow, “His aura seems to be of the human race, a rather common kind of human too. What’s going on, did I see it wrong?” 

    The little girl named Xingzu also nodded, confused. “Yes, his aura is indeed of the human race, and his cultivation level is not very high. Could it be a mistake?” 

    They were very surprised and couldn’t quite believe their eyes. 

    Because they found that after the man’s radiance faded, he looked…very ordinary. 

    Apart from his very ancient clothing, there was nothing particularly unusual about him. 

    Plain appearance, average build, and even his cultivation level seemed to only be in the Heavenly God Realm. 

    He was a completely ordinary cultivator. 

    All the strange phenomena just now seemed to have been caused by the strange stone itself, and combined with the accumulation of various spiritual materials by the True Immortal Academy over the years, it created such a sensation. 

    “Is this really the descendant of a True Immortal?” 

    “Forget it, he’s just another disappointment.”

    Meanwhile, among the nearby mountains, many young female disciples were quite disappointed, reality being completely different from what they had imagined. 

    “I thought he would be a man like the Young Master Changge, but it turns out that this guy has nothing to do with True Immortals.” 

    “It’s Young Master Changge who looks like he has something to do with the True Immortals, and what’s more, Young Master Changge isn’t all talk…” 

    Whether it was the Young Geniuses or the elders, their expressions were both stiff and unbelieving.

    The man’s appearance was a bit too far from their expectations. 

    Compared to their expectations, he was a complete letdown. 

    The greater the expectation, the greater the disappointment. 

    It would’ve been a bit better if his cultivation level was higher.

    That said, neither his aura nor his temperament can be said to be related to a True Immortal. To put it bluntly, he seemed more like he just got lucky and happened to come across the stone. 

    “This…” 

    Huang Nu and the Divine Prince, who had been looking forward to it, also had stiff expressions and were not expecting such a big reversal. 

    “The mysterious stone that the True Immortal Academy claims fell from the Ninth Heaven is a bit disappointing.” 

    The Divine Prince couldn’t help but shake his head, deeply suspicious of the word “true” in the claim. 

    Huang Nu didn’t say anything, but the expression in her eyes was self-evident. 

    She thought it would be a formidable enemy, but in the end, she found out that he was just an ordinary person, a little too much so. Of course, this is just an ordinary placement in the True Immortal Academy. If he were elsewhere, he would still be considered an impressive genius. 

    “In theory, it shouldn’t be that simple…” 

    Lao Shi was still carefully observing Qin Wuya, feeling that there were many secrets hidden within him. 

    His cultivation was also a bit strange. Being sealed for so many years and constantly nourished by various spiritual energies of the heavens and earth day and night, it shouldn’t be like this. 

    Could it be that this man was deliberately hiding his abilities? 

    At this moment, Qin Wuya finally realised his current state and noticed that many people were looking at him. 

    He quickly understood that the crowd was suspicious and dismissive of him, but he didn’t mind. Having lived in Ninth Heaven for three hundred years, he learned many lessons, and keeping a low profile was the hard truth. 

    Moreover, his cultivation was definitely not just in the Heavenly God Realm. That was only his level before he fell into the Ninth Heaven. In the Ninth Heaven, his level increased rapidly, and he also brought back many unique Artefacts from that world. 

    So unless they challenged him, who cared what they thought? 

    ’The most important thing to do now would be to figure out where I am, as well as how long it’s been since I accidentally entered Ninth Heaven.’ 

    Qin Wuya muttered in his heart, thinking about what he needed to do next. 

    Meanwhile, in the depths of the True Immortal Academy, where many geniuses and old monsters were gathered, Gu Changge’s figure was on another towering mountain peak. 

    His majestic divine sense covered all directions, unable to sense anyone nearby who could detect his presence, allowing him to slightly relax. 

    ’What a delightful new opportunity for me.’ 

    The smile on Gu Changge’s mouth seemed to imply something. 

    Then, his gaze fell and quickly noticed Ying Shuang, who was meditating with closed eyes in the cave below. 

    Currently, he had other plans for him. 

    The waters weren’t deep enough just yet. 

    He needed to secretly lend a helping hand. 

    He then set his sights on a cave not too far from Ying Shuang’s, but along the way, he passed through a forest where several geniuses had their own caves. 

    The forest was quiet, and there were beams of rosy light scattered all around. Ancient herbs grew outside, emitting a rich purple mist from the cracks in the rocks into the void. 

    In this forest was a cave where a Young Genius was practising. Waves of energy emanated from him, indicating that he possessed a special physique. He didn’t notice Gu Changge’s gaze as he meditated with his legs crossed. 

    Buzz! 

    On the mountaintop, Gu Changge stepped forward, then disappeared into thin air. 

    “You…” 

    A shocked and incredulous voice rang out in the cave, then fell silent. 

    Shortly after, Gu Changge’s figure reappeared, with no fluctuations in his expression. Meanwhile, the cave had fallen into a dead silence, devoid of any aura or activity. 

    Naturally, no geniuses were present. 

    Gu Changge then glanced at Ying Shuang’s cave with an inexplicable smile before disappearing again. 

    “Reporting to the master, the mysterious stone at the True Immortal Academy has emerged, but the genius who came out seems a bit unusual. Although the origin is ancient and mysterious, his cultivation level does not appear to be very high. It seems to be only in the Heavenly God Realm, causing many people to leave disappointed.” 

    Upon returning to the palace, Gu Changge listened to the reports from his followers below, feeling a little surprised. 

    “Heavenly God Realm cultivation? It attracted so many people, and this was the result?”

    He raised an eyebrow. 

    Gu Changge naturally knew about this news but didn’t go to observe it himself. 

    After all, he had to take this opportunity to help Ying Shuang prove his identity as the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts. 

    “Yes, many of the elders and disciples rushed there at the time, but they were all disappointed, and the mysterious genius was also taken away by the elders in the end, as if they had something to ask,” reported the follower below respectfully. 

    Gu Changge nodded thoughtfully, feeling that the genius sealed within the strange stone was no simple character. 

    In terms of cultivation, someone at the Heavenly God Realm wouldn’t be worthy of note at the True Immortal Academy. 

    Alongside the news of the strange stone was another rumour that spread across the mouths of the True Immortal Academy’s disciples, causing a great sensation! 

    A Young Genius with a special physique had disappeared without a trace! 

    Yes, while practising alone in the cave, the person disappeared without leaving any trace or fluctuation behind. 

    Even the elders who went to investigate the scene were helpless and found no trace of them. 

    This news shocked many people and caused panic. 

    Combined with recent events, many people instantly linked it to the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts! 

    After all, many of the previous events showed that the biggest characteristic of the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts was to select geniuses with special physiques, who disappeared without any trace. 

    So many geniuses and elders came to the conclusion with heavy faces. 

    Undoubtedly, the Young Genius had fallen into the hands of the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts. 

    This incident indicated that the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts had infiltrated and hidden among the geniuses, taking on a new identity that no one knew. 

    This incident caused a huge sensation and panic, with some of the more reclusive geniuses facing heavy scrutiny from their peers. 

    Many elders also began to patrol and attempted to find the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts.

    — — —

    “This time, you acted too impulsively and recklessly. You just entered the True Immortal Academy not long ago, and you have already taken action. Although your concealment technique is good, it is still too bold at this time.” 

    “What if you were caught?” 

    At this moment, in the cave where divine light and rosy clouds interweave, the figure of Mo Lao appeared, speaking to Ying Shuang with a solemn expression and some concern. 

    A Young Genius had fallen victim to the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts.  

    Mo Lao immediately thought of Ying Shuang, as he had personally brought him in.  

    Although Ying Shuang had not shown any signs of practising the Demonic Arts in front of him, given the many incidents and rumours that had occurred before, it was almost certain that he was the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts. 

    This time, with the reappearance of the Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts, Mo Lao believed that it must have been the doing of Ying Shuang.

    So he came here to ask him, worried that his identity might be exposed.

    Upon hearing this, Ying Shuang remained calm and said, “I know what I’m doing. There won’t be any problems.” 

    Although he said this, he tightly clenched his fist hidden under his robe, filled with anger and unwillingness. 

    Although he needed the identity of an Inheritor of the Forbidden Demonic Arts to allow Mo Lao to protect him from behind, it was still frustrating and unfair to be unjustly accused once again without leaving the cave even for a single step.

    He couldn’t help but admit it. 

    Was there anything more frustrating and helpless in this world? 

    “Since that’s the case, take care, and don’t be too reckless,” Mo Lao nodded and left, relieved. 

    ‘Damn it…’ 

    ‘He’s framing me again!’ 

    As soon as Mo Lao had left, Ying Shuang’s expression twisted, fierce and filled with fury, carrying both extreme resentment and frustration.
