Chapter 250: Wrapping Things Up

Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
"Kacha!"

Amidst the dark clouds, lightning struck everywhere and 5 streaks of purple lightning descended from the heavens! This was a tribulation from the heavens, a backlash from the entire realm!

"We have to give it our all!"

The five dream masters looked at each other and exclaimed.

"Fire Consuming Cauldron!"

"Fiery dragon explosion!"

"Funeral Flowers Chant!"

"Seal!"

The 4 dream masters all revealed their signature moves to counter the purple lightning.

Even Fang Yuan was solemn. His Sixth Elemental Force exploded and together with his fire-type spiritual sword, he sliced towards the purple lightning.

"Rumble!"

As the lightning met with his sword, his hand shook and he retreated, his face looking desolate.

"What on earth..."

Looking at the Leaving Fire Sword, he noticed the spiritual light from it becoming dimmer. It was evident that the sword was damaged, and he let out a soft sigh.

He had restored his full power and could only do so much to counter the tribulation from the heavens. The 4 other dream masters would surely have it worse.

"The power of the tribulation increases as we continue to fight against it."

Looking at the dark clouds in the sky, Fang Yuan laughed coldly. "If we lose our physical bodies, our souls would be exposed to the elements. Even though we are at the Illusionary Divine stage, our souls would still be captured and it would not be as simple as damaging our original bodies."

"This is not good..."

Feng Xinzi's robes flew with the wind and his chest started to turn red. Suddenly, he shouted. "We cannot guess the heaven's intention and it is unwise to go against it. The only way out is to kill the king of Lie Country and obtain the country's realm energy before making our way back!"

Even though they were possessing the bodies of the natives, the heavens could already identify them and the tribulations would only continue.

They could only have a chance of survival if they had the power of the entire world, but how was that possible?

With that, Fang Yuan started to laugh to himself as he heard what Feng Xinzi said.

"Alright!"

However, he was not standing in their shoes as he had already reaped the benefits and would not be without his gains if he returned. Venerable Fiery Dragon and Deity Clear Lotus, on the other hand, would feel the pain as they would have lost everything. Thus, they quickly rushed towards the royal palace.

On the top floors of the royal palace.

"Demons! Demons indeed!"

The king of Lie Country shuddered as he witnessed these five silhouettes killing the First Officer and First Lieutenant, as well as countering the tribulations from the heavens. With that, his legs turned to jelly.

"Protect the king!"

In the royal palace, there were other highly skilled people other than the First Officer and First Lieutenant.

Many servants and generals rushed towards the five of them like grasshoppers trying to block a car.

"Seeking death!"

Against the few desperate dream masters, they all turned into a bloodied mess.

A few unlucky ones even had to undergo the tribulations from the heavens and were struck by lightning.

"King... The capital and royal palace have been invaded. You are no longer the king. Cooperate with us and give us the realm energy, and we might just let your soul free!"

Feng Xinzi struck his palm and a few armoured guards flew away.

Originally, his plan was to gather both Chunhe and Huixin to rebel and force the king to give up his throne and strike while they hand over the dragon's realm energy.

But now, since the heavens had already detected them, the plan was being messed up.

"Rumble!"

The dark clouds covered the entire country and darkness filled every corner of the palace. Within minutes, it had turned into night time.

As the purple lightning struck, the vicinity would be lighted up for a second, illuminating a chaotic capital city and the pale face of the king of Lie Country.

"Quickly hide, king! These demons are undergoing tribulations from the heavens and cannot last long!"

At one side, a servant advised the king.

"It's too late!"

The king laughed. "I am already dead! Even if I were to die, I will not let these demons get what they want!"

As he spoke, blood began to flow out of his mouth.

"King..."

The servants beside him cried. Without another word, all of them surrounded the king as they attempted to let the king survive a little longer.

"The King of Lie Country dictates that the Country's realm energy will return to the heavens. Heavens, please decide on how you would deal with these demons!"

As the king struggled, he used his blood to write out a few sentences. Within seconds, his face started to bleed as he lost his breath.

As the 5 dream masters rushed upstairs, they were shocked.

A pitiful roar of a dragon was heard and the illusionary shadow of a water dragon fell.

Following, a streak of realm energy as thick as a pillar separated from the water dragon and shot straight into the sky before disappearing.

Everything happened within seconds but Feng Xinzi quickly understood what was happening. "Despicable!"

"How can the king be so extreme? To destroy his own country?"

Witnessing the scene, Fang Yuan was confused as well.

Originally, even if the king were to kill himself, the dragon's realm energy would be split among the few potential heirs of the throne, with Chunhe and Huixing being the likely recipients.

If that had happened, then everything would have gone according to Feng Xinzi's plan.

But now, by returning the country's realm energy to the heavens, it was destroying all their hopes.

"Ah! Even though you're dead, I will kill all your descendants and burn your soul!!!"

Venerable Fiery Dragon was enraged.

Both Deity Clear Lotus and himself had invested their realm energies and thought that they could gain from it. But now, everything was lost and he was going crazy.

"Rumble!"

As for the heavens, after receiving the realm energy from the king, the lightning and thunders rumbled with much more power than before.

Countless purple lightning formed the shape of an eye.

The eye of the heavens!

Suddenly, the dream masters felt as though they were being seen through.

"Let's go!"

Fang Yuan was decisive. Although he could defend himself from the previous few rounds of tribulations, the heavens were truly awakened this time. They had no chance against it and he quickly executed his dream-traversing technique to abandon his body as he travelled back to his own realm.

"Buzz!"

As that moment, he vaguely heard the exclamations from Feng Xinzi and the rest and a red lightning striking his possessed body, burning it.

...

Da Qian Empire, Sand Region, Dongyi County.

Fang Yuan shook as he opened his eyes.

"Phew!"

After shaking his limbs, he only felt a little weaker than before. It was a good thing that he had instructed his body to continuously take in elemental force before leaving it, and therefore everything was fine.

However, he still felt a little fear at the moment he left the Hui Realm.

The red lightning was stronger than the previous tribulation by 10 times! 100 times!

At his current level of cultivation, if he were to be struck, he would die in the realm and even affect his own real body!

"The good thing is that... I have still gained from this trip!"

Looking at his stats winder, he smiled.

"Name: Fang Yuan

Essence: 36

Spirit: 30

Magic: 30

Profession: Dream Soldier Master

Cultivation: Illusionary Divine (1st Tier), Wu Zong (3rd Meridian)

Technique: [Giant Eagle Metal Body Technique (Grade 4) (1%)], Hundred Poison Golden Body (1st Refining), [8 Gates Sword Array (2nd Sword) (10%)]

Skill: [Medicine (Level 3)], [Botany (Level 5)]"

"The realm energy from the Golden Dragon Lake is enough for the 8 Gates Sword Array to achieve a breakthrough, and that is enough..."

Fang Yuan's consciousness entered his actualised dream world. Looking at the centre of the 8 Gates Sword Array, he noticed that the Leaving Fire Sword was dimmer than usual. This was due to the damage that it had sustained from countering the tribulation. However, it didn't matter as he could slowly use his dream elemental energy to repair it.

Other than that, there was also a golden fruit floating in mid-air as it floated around with his dream elemental force. There was a circle of golden glow around it and it was covered in runes.

"Let me find out more about this in the Dream Realm... and also take a look at Feng Xinzi and the rest of them... they still owe me a ton of contribution points!"

Fang Yuan closed his eyes and entered the Dream Realm.

The streets were busy as usual. As soon as Fang Yuan entered the Dream Realm, his jade inscription plate started to glow.

"Feng Xinzi?"

Fang Yuan's eyebrows twitched.

"It's me... Brother, let's meet at the usual place!"

Feng Xinzi sounded weak.

"Alright!"

Fang Yuan was deep in his own thoughts as he arrived at the tea building.

Indeed, Feng Xinzi was already waiting for him in a private room.

Inside, a beautiful lady with a familiar spiritual aura greeting Fang Yuan.

"Its Deity Clear Lotus!"

He smiled and recognised her. "I wonder where Venerable Fiery Dragon and Yu Tianlao are?"

"Yu Tianlao and yourself were quick to react and left before the lightning struck. As for Feng Xinzi and myself, we were a little slower and were slightly affected and our souls were heavily wounded. As for Brother Fiery Dragon..."

Deity Clear Lotus revealed a sad look. "We still have no news of him. I have already contacted the people of his sect but there is still no news of him. I'm afraid... he is unfortunate!"

Fang Yuan bit his lip.

No one would expect that a simple exploration mission would escalate into such a situation.

"In that realm, normal deaths would lead to damage to the soul. However, for us, we have crossed the line..."

Feng Xinzi let out a bitter laugh. "Before I came here, I have researched about the red lightning. It seems that the lightning is from the natural source in that realm! Dream masters who would attract such a lightning would usually not end up well!"

"Natural source?"

Fang Yuan was deep in his thoughts.

"That's right... the natural source of energy of Hui Realm is from their realm energy, and especially from the country's dragon realm energy. The heavens were enraged to the point that they would not mind consuming their natural source of energy to destroy us..."

There was fear in Feng Xinzi's voice.

In fact, he was prepared for the journey to Hui Realm. Otherwise, he wouldn't have gotten the array which was able to shield them from the tribulations.

Never would they have thought that an enraged world would be so scary, and this was a huge blow to him.

"Oh... I'm afraid that Brother Fiery Dragon's soul is either severely injured or he might have died, and I am at fault..."

Feng Xinzi sighed, took out his inscription plate and waved his hands. On Fang Yuan's inscription plate, there was an additional string of contribution points. "This is the promised contribution points!"

"And from me!"

Deity Clear Lotus was honourable and quickly transferred contribution points to Fang Yuan as well.

"Thank you!"

This was what they had agreed on, and Fang Yuan accepted the contribution points without hesitation. They continued to talk for a while.

Feng Xinzi and Deity Clear Lotus were both injured. Not long after, they parted as they returned to healing their injuries.
