Ye Xiwen’s spirit’s speed was extremely quick. In an instant, he traveled from the Star Beast Avatar into his original body.
There was a dual-way passage between his original body and the Star Beast Avatar. It was convenient for Ye Xiwen to control the Star Beast Avatar on his own will.
Ye Xiwen immediately returned into his original body. As for the old ghost, he was getting closer and closer. His body was still engulfed within the black mist, and he was displaying a horrifying and creepy smile. In an instant, he almost reached Ye Xiwen’s side.
The emaciated ghostly claw instantly grabbed downwards. It wasn’t clear what claw art this was, but it just felt like the daos of heavens and earth were contained within. This old ghost could scratch through dao, and even leave a mark on it with just a casual claw swing.
Space was flying quickly behind them. In an instant, Ye Xiwen had reached his original body. The old ghost felt that something was out of place, but didn’t realize what was. The most important thing was that he did not hold Ye Xiwen in high regard.
He felt that everything was within his grasp. If there was a need, he could just kill Ye Xiwen at any time. Even if Ye Xiwen had managed to kill the Emergence School Leader in the Transcendent Realm, he felt that Ye Xiwen was purely lucky. Without him causing trouble, he wouldn’t end up winning.
Without him, Ye Xiwen was nothing.
As a result, despite feeling that something was out of place, he didn’t come to a stop. Instead, he continued chasing after him. He didn’t care what kind of plot he held. Under absolute strength, trickery was nothing.
With a “Boom,” Ye Xiwen rushed towards the insides interior domain filled with rays of multi-coloured lights. The old ghost quickly followed after him without any worries.
Suddenly, a burst of light radiated from the domain filled with multi-coloured rays. The mysterious space within Ye Xiwen’s spiritual sea seemed to have awoken after a deep slumber, and instantly enveloped Ye Xiwen’s entire spiritual sea.
“This isn’t good!” The old ghost finally realised that something was wrong. At first, he could tell that Ye Xiwen wanted to lure him here, but didn’t pay much heed to it. Even if there was a trap awaiting him, it meant nothing under absolute strength. If anything, he could just destroy Ye Xiwen’s physical body. With that, even if his spirit had really laid down any traps, it would all be for naught. No matter what, the spirit had to rely on a physical body. A bodiless spirit would just end up being a wandering spirit. In the past, despite being a Holy Realm Dweller, he managed to cultivate until his current realm after losing his body despite so many years passing by. From this, it was apparent how hard it was to cultivate in that form.
However, it was too late for him to attempt escape. Ye Xiwen’s mysterious space seemed to have received some attacks. It started counter-attacking vigorously, and immediately enveloped the old ghost.
The horrifying and unedified strength instantly started crushing his spirit. As if it was his nemesis, his overbearing strength that reached the strength of a Transcendent Realm expert was nothing in front of such terrifying power. The multi-coloured rays brushed across his body, and immediately blew all the black mists away.
Finally, his actual face was revealed. He was an old man that had a grey-white coloured face, and was clad in black clothing. His eyes were crimson red, and his looks resembled that of a demon, which looked extremely hideous. Currently, he was yelling in agony. Originally, he planned to devour Ye Xiwen’s spirit in order to replenish his spirit that was now of the yin attribute. However, he could now only shout continuously within the radiance of the multi-coloured rays of lights.
Seeing the old ghost that was yelling and struggling non-stop, Ye Xiwen let out a sigh of relief. In the end, he still had to resort to saving his life using this mysterious space. He had already seen how magnificent this mysterious space was. If it wasn’t for the mysterious space’s help, he would never be able to subdue Ye Mo.
Initially, he was just trying out the mysterious space as a last resort. To his surprise, the old ghost was rendered unable to refute. He got even curious about the origins of this mysterious space, considering how strong it was.
“Ye Xiwen, thank god you have this mysterious space. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be able to avoid today’s disaster!” Ye Mo appeared beside Ye Xiwen and said in a serious tone. Within his tone, a few hints of surprise were also contained within, “I never expected the myths regarding the Emergence School to be true. Such incredible actions. They really did slay a Holy Realm Dweller, and captured his spirit to be sealed within the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber. You must have successfully taken care of the Emergence School Leader previously because of this old thing ambushing him. It’s really scary. It’s heaven defying for a yin spirit to cultivate to the Transcendent Realm. How many people’s blood essence and spirit did he consume to form such a terrifying monster?”
Ye Xiwen felt afraid as well. He never believed in any lone ghosts or wandering ghosts. Even if he was in a gloomy place, or was in a location which many ghastly remnant spirits resided in like a battlefield, they were merely using the location to their advantage. Even if they appeared to be domineering in a certain area, they were extremely fragile.
He had never encountered a remnant spirit that was able to cultivate until this caliber. It was truly terrifying. The world is huge, and there are many kinds of wonders in the world. He just got too careless. If the old ghost had really taken over his physical body, he might cultivate into a peerless ruthless demon that no one would be able to withstand against. That would be the most troublesome thing.
“Ah! I’m unresigned! How did it turn out to be like this!” The old ghost shouted tragically. His spiritual body had been blown away in half by the multi-coloured rays. If it was a normal person, they would’ve been dead long ago. Only a soul with a yin attribute would be able to survive.
The mysterious space was truly terrifying. Even a Transcendent Realm old ghost was suppressed. The most important thing was that it seemed to be an exceptional nemesis to spiritual bodies, just like how it was able to suppress Ye Mo previously.
“What’s there to be unresigned for. You’re just a Holy Realm Dweller. What’s there to be proud about!” said Ye Mo as it sneered. “Your death had already been decided long ago. You’re going to witness the birth of a new legend!”
“You…I don’t want to die!” The old ghost glared at Ye Mo in anger. Immediately after, a much more tragic shriek resounded. He was completely suppressed by the mysterious space, “Didn’t you want to control the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber? I can help you. I’m the spiritual consciousness of the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber. With my help, you would be able to get control of the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber much quicker!”
Ye Xiwen didn’t display any reaction. Only a cold smile was displayed on his face, which grew colder and colder. What a joke. After knowing that the Emergence School Leader was killed by this old thing, he had completely cut off this thought. Leaving such a troublemaker alive was like carrying a bomb around him. He was someone that might go rampage at any time. Ye Xiwen didn’t want to risk facing this kind of danger.
Considering how powerful the ancestor of the Emergence School was, he must have left a powerful backup technique. However, in the end, the old man still overcame it, and caused the death of his descendant, who was also the school leader.
These were the signs that warned him to not accept him. As for the contract between Ye Xiwen and Ye Mo, he wasn’t the one in charge previously. Besides, he wasn’t expecting the close relationship he had between Ye Mo to occur with anyone else.
“Do you think we’ll believe you? I don’t want to end up like that Emergence School Leader, and perish by your hands in the end!” said Ye Xiwen plainly. He stared at the old ghost’s body being dispersed slowly by the multi-coloured rays, and ultimately decomposing into green smokes.
“Phew, we’ve finally taken care of this hidden threat!” said Ye Mo. “While it might be harder to control the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber without this old ghost around, you can take your sweet time to control the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber. It’s better to dispose of this hidden threat as soon as possible!”
Ye Xiwen nodded. For a peerless and ruthless tool like the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber, Ye Xiwen wouldn’t be able to control it with his own strength. In fact, he didn’t even have the qualifications to do so. If he wanted to take control of it quickly, the most ideal way would be to take control of the spiritual consciousness within the tool. It was the same concept as Ye Xiwen having control over Ye Mo, which allowed him to successfully take control of the Tianyuan Mirror.
Without the assistance of the old ghost, he would take a long time to control the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber. However, it was much better than being backstabbed by the old ghost in the future. He would rather watch the old ghost be suppressed and disperse in the form of a green smoke.
Within the cosmos, Ye Xiwen opened his eyes. Terrifying saber lights exploded fanatically from the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber in his hand, as if it wanted to destroy the entire cosmos. Despite not having a spiritual consciousness, it was enough to cause a huge trouble to Ye Xiwen with its instinct to repel him from getting closer.
Golden Divinities flowed out of Ye Xiwen’s palm which instantly engulfed the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber. He oppressed its ruthless energy temporarily, and threw it into the Tianyuan Mirror to let Ye Mo suppress it.
Ye Mo was already very familiar in doing these kinds of stuff. Previously, he had to suppress the Dragon Vein, and even the Star Beast’s spirit. With the addition of the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber, the internal space of the Tianyuan Mirror became more lively. Sounds of swords and dragon roaring could be heard occasionally.
After keeping the Emergence Immortal Exterminating Saber, Ye Xiwen immediately extended his Demon Wings without hesitation, and immediately left this battlefield. He already felt a few terrifyingly strong aura of Transcendent Realm experts rushing towards his location. Many of them were factions that wanted to take advantage of the situation.
Now, the Emergence School had become detested stray dogs. Anyone would be able to bully them. Currently, the Emergence School’s disciples were already running away. At this time, even if the Emergence School Leader died, it would merely shock them for a short while. There would be nothing more.
For Ye Xiwen, these were strong competitions. Even the weakest Transcendent Realm expert would be a great risk for his life.

“Originally, he wanted to experiment his thoughts.”
I don’t understand what that’s supposed to mean.
Just updated. It is slightly deviated from the Author’s words but I think this should give more clarity.
‘Initially, he was just trying out the mysterious space as a last resort. To his surprise, the old ghost to be rendered unable to refute.’
I appreciate you keep reading the comments and even take your time reply. And normally I think something like, ‘Oh, so that was what he meant’. But this time too be honest, it still seems slightly off.
“To his surprise, the old ghost to be rendered unable to refute.”
It would work, if you change it to:
“To his surprise, the old ghost was rendered unable to refute.”
Ya, you’re right. I should put more conscientiousness into my wording. 🙂
Anyways, I just patched it. Thanks for the kind notes.
