Worlds' Apocalypse Online - Chapter 1553
Chapter 1553: Nine Serenities
“It’s me” the wraith calmly replied.
Gu Qing Shan evaluated him and commented: “I remember that when you reincarnated, you had an agreement with the world spirit——-”
“Already completed” Demon Dragon replied.
“It isn’t easy to infiltrate the Wraith realm, you must have gone through a lot of hardship” Gu Qing Shan commented.
“Indeed, it was extremely difficult to obtain a clean identity, but I understand the Wraith realm well—— I think I once told you that we would meet again” Demon Dragon replied.
Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but ask: “With so many years of cultivation knowledge, you could have completely let this matter pass, so why did you return? Did you already forget how you died?”
Demon Dragon stayed silent for a bit.
He seemed to be reminiscing before finally giving an answer: “I haven’t forgotten how I died, not for a single moment, that’s why I want to kill those three Wraith Lords with my own hands”
Gu Qing Shan sighed and shook his head.
Originally the most talented cultivator of the Wraith realm, he was sent away to be a spy, becoming the ultimate war Soul Artifact of the Bygone Era humans—– Demon Dragon.
Being trapped in the Demon Dragon’s body for countless years, only to be casually discarded and killed when his usefulness ran out, his entire life could only be described as being horribly oppressed.
Anyone else would have also desired revenge.
Gu Qing Shan put his sword away and asked: “What identity have you taken on now?”
“I’m currently the number one Wraith Might below a Wraith Lord, my title is Corpse Wraith – Xue Long” Demon Dragon replied.
“That’s why you’ve been continuously monitoring the situation. After discovering that it might have been me who appeared, you arranged for this meeting to see me” Gu Qing Shan commented.
“Yes, that’s indeed the case” Demon Dragon replied.
“What’s the current situation in the Wraith realm?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“Reneedol had turtled up inside the Wraith Temple, while all the remaining angels and wraiths are currently guarding that place” Demon Dragon answered.
Gu Qing Shan fell into thought.
——-the only thing left of the Delimitation Divine Sword is its fragments, which should have been taken there by the Wraith realm, but I don’t know where they would be hiding it.
“Gu Qing Shan, what’s your goal for coming to the Wraith realm this time?” Demon Dragon asked.
“Same as you, to kill the three Wraith Lords—— as soon as they die, the entire Wraith realm would fall into chaos, then I’ll think of a way to deal with Reneedol” Gu Qing Shan replied.
Demon Dragon nodded: “The strength of three Wraith Lords cannot be underestimated, and since they’re always around the Grand Empress, I haven’t gotten a chance to kill them despite how long I’ve waited”
“Oh? That shouldn’t be the case at all, you’re in the shadows while they’re out in the open, there should always be a chance to ambush at least one of them” Gu Qing Shan said.
Demon Dragon explained: “——-Because each of them has a Soul Incense of the other two Wraith Lords, as soon as one of them dies, the other two Wraith Lords would immediately use an Immortal Craft to resurrect him”
Gu Qing Shan pondered for a few moments: “Which means, if you want to kill them, you’d have to come up with a way to kill all three of them at once?”
“Yes, that’s exactly the case” Demon Dragon confirmed.
“That’s extremely difficult” Gu Qing Shan commented.
“That’s why I still haven’t found a chance, now that you’re participating in this as well, I’d like to hear what you think” Demon Dragon said.
—–regardless of anything else, Gu Qing Shan’s scheming mind was a cut above the rest, Demon Dragon had been deeply impressed by this.
Gu Qing Shan paced around the mining tunnel for a bit before telling him: “I also need to come into contact with them in order to see just how strong they actually are”
“There aren’t usually any unfamiliar people by the Wraith Lords’ side” Demon Dragon shook his head.
“I know one person, if you can help me bring him here, I have a method of taking his identity to help you kill the Wraith Lord” Gu Qing Shan replied.
“Cang Wu Zhang”
“…The Wraith Lord’s son?”
Demon Dragon pondered briefly before asking: “How sure are you about this?”
“70% sure” Gu Qing Shan didn’t completely guarantee it and continued: “The Wraith realm’s defenses are too tight; this is the only way I can infiltrate the top brass of the Wraith realm”
Demon Dragon thought briefly.
That’s already quite considerable.
He then asked: “When do you want him?”
“As soon as possible. You probably know about the current circumstances already” Gu Qing Shan replied.
“Alright, leave this to me, wait here for my return” Demon Dragon told him.
Warp fluctuations radiated from his body again.
A second later, Demon Dragon disappeared.
The mining tunnels returned to silence once again.
Gu Qing Shan waited for a bit while releasing his inner sight to scan both the inside and outside of the mines.
It was only now that he sighed and took out a canned drink and slowly took a sip.
Boss suddenly spoke up: “You still haven’t told him our goal”
“Whenever we recognize someone familiar, if you’re wearing a mask, your first reaction would usually be to take off your mask for the other party to recognize you, don’t you agree?” Gu Qing Shan said.
Boss thought briefly and replied: “I agree”
“But he didn’t. He kept his mask on the entire time” Gu Qing Shan continued.
“What’s wrong with that?” Boss asked.
“He’s very cautious and is subconsciously putting up his guard to obscure himself” Gu Qing Shan explained.
“And you don’t trust him just because of that?” Boss asked.
“Let’s not mention any sort of trust. After all, he was my enemy in his past life, and I haven’t gotten to know him during his current life either, I don’t know what he had gone through, what his thoughts might be, or his true goals—— I only know that he hated the Wraith realm and had always wanted revenge, other than that, I have no idea” Gu Qing Shan replied seriously.
“You’re also putting your guard up very high” Boss commented.
“It can’t be helped, one wrong step could mean I’m walking into a death trap, I have no choice but to be careful” Gu Qing Shan said.
“Then what do we do next?” Boss asked.
“Let’s observe the situation first, I also need to display a bit of our power as well, otherwise, he would think that we don’t consider him as an ally——- if he truly becomes our comrade later on, I would welcome him with open arms” Gu Qing Shan replied.
“What about the Delimitation Divine Sword?” Boss asked again.
“We’ll cross that bridge when we get there. We still have Lin inside, who can be trusted without a doubt, perhaps she would know where the Delimitation Divine Sword is” Gu Qing Shan answered.
The two of them silently waited in the empty mining tunnel.
Time slowly went by.
Several hours soon passed.
Suddenly, a flash of light appeared in the tunnel.
Demon Dragon had reappeared, bringing with him an unconscious man.
Gu Qing Shan approached and took off the man’s mask.
——it was indeed Cang Wu Zhang!
“You’re quite impressive, it took me quite a bit of effort to kill him in the past, only for him to end up being revived” Gu Qing Shan praised.
“I’ve been mingling with him every day for several dozen years; he considers me his good brother” Demon Dragon coldly replied.
A sword appeared in Gu Qing Shan’s hand.
“——–you can’t kill him! As soon as he died, the three Wraith Lords would immediately notice” Demon Dragon stopped him.
“Oh? That sounds troublesome, do you have a way to keep him unconscious like this?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“I can do that, but what are you intending to do?” Demon Dragon asked.
Gu Qing Shan plucked a strand of hair from Cang Wu Zhang’s head.
At the very next moment.
Gu Qing Shan’s body began to transform as he quickly took on Cang Wu Zhang’s appearance.
Demon Dragon looked at Cang Wu Zhang, who was unconscious on the ground, then carefully looked at Gu Qing Shan.
“It’s plausible, but there’s still one huge issue”
“Cang Wu Zhang’s mask is among the highest levels within the Wraith realm, which had already synchronized with his inner sight. No one would be able to steal it, so if you want to disguise as him, you’d have to wear a different mask—–”
Halfway through his sentence, Demon Dragon stopped.
He saw the mask on Gu Qing Shan’s face slowly changing from black and blue to pure white.
A second later, numerous colorful hues filled the mask to depict a solemn and dignified expression.
This mask looked exactly the same as Cang Wu Zhang’s mask!
A tiny noise was heard.
Several thin cracks had appeared on Cang Wu Zhang’s mask.
Demon Dragon spoke with a hoarse voice: “You’ve always had several trump cards”
“No, you simply haven’t seen me for too long that you aren’t clear about my situation” Gu Qing Shan replied.
——now that I think about it, when Cang Wu Zhang fought against me and Shifu on the Divine Mountain Sumeru, his Guise Hex was extremely potent.
I wonder how strong it would become after being upgraded by the Samsara Wicked Mask?
Gu Qing Shan’s gaze turned to the void of space.
Lines of glowing text had appeared to display the details of the mask.
[Heavenly Wraith Mask]
[This mask contains the Guise Hex: Seven Wraiths of Fu Dou]
[This Guise Hex will automatically activate in combat. Whenever an enemy attacks, seven shadows will appear to retaliate against the enemy with the same power]
[Attention: This is practically the strongest yaksha mask]
[If you use the Samsara Wicked Mask’s Divine Skill, this Guise Hex will be upgraded by one level and be imbued onto the Samsara Wicked Mask]
[——-You’ve chosen to activate Jade Cultivation Deep Shadow]
All the glowing text swiftly disappeared as new lines of text show up on the screen:
[You’ve activated Jade Cultivation Deep Shadow]
[The Heavenly Wraith Mask has been upgraded by one level]
[This mask contains the Guise Hex: Yin Wraiths of Nine Serenities]
[This Guise Hex will automatically activate in combat. Whenever an enemy attacks, nine shadows will appear to retaliate against the enemy with the same power]
Gu Qing Shan was surprised.
This is truly——-
Powerful beyond imaginations!
Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but ask: “How come the three Wraith Lords didn’t keep such a powerful Guise Hex to themselves?”
Demon Dragon chuckled sarcastically and said: “This brat Cang Wu Zhang was able to please the Grand Empress. Since the Grand Empress thinks of the yaksha mask as disgusting and doesn’t want to wear it, she bestowed it to him”
“Tch, [Seven Wraiths of Fu Dou] is so powerful, and yet it fell into the hands of someone like him. At the same time, since this was the Grand Empress’ will, no one dared to try and take it from him”
Demon Dragon looked at Gu Qing Shan and muttered: “I’ve never thought that you would be able to steal [Seven Wraiths of Fu Dou] for your own mask”
Gu Qing Shan just looked down without saying anything.
A burst of black flames suddenly appeared next to him.
A voice spoke up from inside the flames:
“Wait a moment, did you say that he could please Reneedol?”
 Xue Long can be literally translated as Blood Dragon
