Chapter 256 Star Map
Li Cheng and Li Weis expressions froze when they heard this.
The two of them seemed to have instantly turned into wooden puppets and were motionless, their eyes filled with fear.
In the past few days, be it ordinary people or martial artists, they had been very polite to them, as if they were entertaining guests.
This even made them subconsciously forget their true goal.
They were here to investigate the death of their great-grandfather, Li Fa, and this matter was very likely related to Immortal Venerable Cui in front of them.
This was a life-threatening matter!
“Immortal Venerable, we…” Li Cheng hesitated for a moment, but he decided to tell the truth.” Were indeed descendants of our Great-Grandfather, but were not here to seek revenge.
We just want to investigate the reason for his death.”
This was indeed the truth.
After all, Li Fa had already been dead for more than 6,000 years when they were born.
In the mortal world, this matter was no longer related to their bloodline at all.
They had no feelings for each other at all.
The reason why they came to investigate was because the rewards given by the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect were too tempting.
The mission request did not say that they had to avenge Li Fa.
They only needed to investigate the cause of death.
At this moment, Liu Litao, Chen Tong, Lu Zhengming, and the others also looked at Li Cheng.
They were very curious.
What kind of guts did he have to dare to come here to investigate
Was he tired of living
“I can tell you the cause of Li Fas death.” Cui Heng smiled without changing his expression.
“6,700 years ago, a Golden Immortal drove a flying shuttle into the universe from here.
He encountered Li Fa on Tianzhu Star and there was a conflict between the two sides.
Li Fa was killed by that Golden Immortal, but a mark was also left on that Golden Immortal.
After that, this Golden Immortal used a secret technique to hide himself.
He died more than 3,000 years ago, passing his Immortal True Essence to his son.
His son is now a Realm Guardian Spirit Beast of mine.”
He had considered the situation before explaining it directly.
Although Cui Heng was cautious, he did not behave cautiously just for the sake of it.
After understanding the situation on Chongyang Star, he already understood that the forces on Chongyang Star could not threaten him.
Due to this understanding, his style of doing things naturally became direct without any hesitation.
However, this sudden explanation frightened Li Cheng and Li Wei.
Their faces turned pale as they looked at Cui Heng in fear.
The person he wanted to investigate was actually Immortal Venerable Cuis Realm Guardian Spirit Beast!
Although they did not understand how the human they had investigated about back then and had now become a Realm Guardian Spirit Beast, this did not affect them from understanding Cui Hengs meaning.
This was clearly telling them that it was time to take sides.
Should they stand on the side of the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect and treat Cui Heng as an enemy Should they resist until the end, or should they give up on this hatred and decisively choose to stand on Cui Hengs side and explain the situation to the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect
The answer was obvious.
They did not even need to think to make a choice.
Li Cheng and Li Wei looked at each other and knelt on the ground at the same time.
Then, Li Cheng bowed respectfully and said, “Immortal Venerable, actually, we siblings dont have any feelings for Li Fa at all.
Our bloodline connection is also extremely thin.
Were not here to seek revenge.
Its only because the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect took out three pieces of Immortal True Essence as a reward that we came to investigate Li Fas death for the sake of the familys strength.”
In his panic, he didnt even dare to call Li Fa his Great-grandfather, only referring to him by his name.
Actually, there was not much problem with calling him by his name.
After all, it had been passed down for countless generations.
I was wondering why the death of a Half-step Golden Immortal was still being investigated after 6,700 years.” Cui Heng nodded slightly and said, “Why does the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect value him so much”
From what he had learned from Li Cheng and Li Wei earlier, a Half-step Golden Immortal should not be an important figure on Chongyang Star.
Even if Li Fa had once been valued by the Sage of the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect, it was unlikely that he would still remember him after 6,700 years.
This was almost the limit of a Sages lifespan.
It could almost be said that the Sage had borne this grudge for most of his life.
It was really unbelievable.
“Immortal Venerable, its said that Li Fa went out to find a method to reach the Peak of the Sixth Realm.” Li Cheng told him his guess.
“Moreover, from the rewards of the Nine Deaths Heavenly Sect, Li Fa has most likely discovered some clues back then.”
“A way to step into the Peak of the Sixth Realm” Cui Heng fell into deep thought when he heard this.
Then, he nodded and said, “This is indeed possible.
To a Sage who is about to die, this is undoubtedly the most important thing.”
This news was relatively important to him.
Now, he only knew half of the cultivation method for the Nine Realms of the Immortal World, which was the method for a Limitless Golden Immortal at the Peak of the Fifth Realm to step into the Sixth Realm and become a Sage.
As for how to break through to the Peak of the Sixth Realm, he had no idea at all.
He didnt even know what the Peak of the Sixth Realm was called or what characteristics it had.
If he could investigate this, it would definitely allow his Nascent Soul cultivation to increase greatly.
To the current Cui Heng, every piece of important news could be said to be a great tonic.
Knowledge and information were equivalent to cultivation and power!
Li Cheng lowered his head and did not dare to continue speaking
If he continued asking, he would be asking if Cui Heng had already grasped the clues that Li Fa had discovered since he had subdued the son of the person who killed Li Fa.
In his opinion, if he really asked that, he would be courting death.
Li Wei also understood this logic and lowered her head, keeping quiet.
“Theres no need to be nervous.” Cui Heng saw through the siblings mentality and smiled.
“I really dont know if Li Fa has discovered anything.
The person who killed Li Fa back then probably didnt know either.
Perhaps in this world, only he knows if there are any clues to this cultivation method.
No, theres another place.
The clue might be on Tianzhu Star.
Thats where Li Fa was buried, and also the last place he hid.
If theres really any clue, its most likely hidden on Tianzhu Star.
As he was also buried on Tianzhu Star.
Naturally, no one mentioned this clue again.”
Thinking of this, he decisively said to Li Cheng and Li Wei, “You guys must have a direction guide to cross the vast universe through the flying shuttle.
Something similar to a Star Map”
“Yes, there is.” Li Cheng hurriedly nodded and said, “Theres a Star Map in the Star Shuttle to guide our destination and adjust the direction.”
As he spoke, he took out a palm-sized flying shuttle model from his sleeve and tapped it gently.
Then, a light blue light screen flew out from the flying shuttle.
It floated above the flying shuttle and countless starlight stretched out, forming several starry skies.
In this light curtain, there were countless stars, and many stars were marked with names.
Especially those stars with life.
Almost all of them had a name.
When Cui Heng saw the Star Map floating above the flying shuttle, he was about to observe it carefully when he suddenly felt that the Star Map was a little familiar.
He hurriedly took a closer look and his eyes lit up.
“The Star Map of this area is almost identical to the one I saw in the Purple Extreme Palace.
Its Qiqis whereabouts.”
