Chapter 255 Pitiful Person, A Certain Death
Ye Han suddenly spoke, causing Li Cheng, who had just finished explaining, to be stunned.
Including Cui Heng, everyone present looked at Ye Han.
“Speak then.” Cui Heng smiled.
“If I tell you, can you spare my life” Ye Han turned to look at Cui Heng and asked bluntly.
He seemed to feel that he had some value and actually began to bargain.
“I know many secrets of the Plague Imperial Palace, and I also know the secrets of the Thousand Plague Umbrella.
As long as you promise to let me go, I will definitely tell you everything I know.”
“How dare you!”
Pei Qingshu shouted angrily.
The blood in his body boiled, and his gaze towards Ye Han was filled with killing intent.
In his opinion, Ye Han was disrespectful to Cui Heng and this was unforgivable.
“Theres no need to be angry.” Cui Heng waved his hand gently and looked at Ye Han with interest.
There was still a faint smile on his face.
“Are you so confident that I cant force you to speak”
“I…” Ye Han opened his mouth, as if he wanted to argue, but in the end, he did not dare to really say it.
In the end, he lowered his head dejectedly and said,” Ill talk.”
The story was not melodramatic, but it was not novel either.
Ye Han was indeed discovered by the Sect Master of the Plague Imperial Palace by chance and taken in as a disciple.
However, the reason why he was carefully nurtured was not to become a successor for him.
After all, the Sect Master of the Plague Imperial Palace had become a Sage not long after taking Ye Han in as his disciple.
His lifespan had become incomparably long.
Even if Ye Han lived to the limit of a Limitless Golden Immortal, he would not be able to take
The true goal of the Sect Master of the Plague Imperial Palace was very simple.
After nurturing Ye Han, he could legitimately let him come into contact with the Sage Armaments in the palace.
This was to complete the nurturing of the Sage Armaments and silently increase the power of the Sage Armaments.
Ye Han, the so-called Holy Son, was actually just nourishment for the Thousand Plague Umbrella.
Therefore, after coming into contact with the Thousand Plague Umbrella, his cultivation had never increased.
He had already become a Limitless Golden Immortal more than 3,000 years ago, and he was a Limitless Golden Immortal who was not even 300 years old.
But now, not to mention breaking through to a higher level, his cultivation realm had not improved at all.
He was still a Limitless Golden Immortal.
It was completely stagnant.
It was precisely because the Thousand Plague Umbrella was constantly absorbing his power that he could not cultivate normally at all, let alone obtain any improvement.
Actually, Ye Han discovered this not long after he came into contact with the Thousand Plague Umbrella.
However, he did not think too much at first and only thought that this was a necessary process for a Limitless Golden Immortal to fuse with a Sage Armament.
However, as time passed, he realized that the power absorbed by the Thousand Plague Umbrella was increasing.
It had even reached a terrifying level where if he did not cultivate hard, his cultivation might regress.
Ye Han fell into panic because of this, so he went to ask his master.
At that time, the Sect Master of the Plague Imperial Palace, who had already become a Sage, only gave him a perfunctory answer.
Then, the Sect Master of the Plague Imperial Palace gave him a simple mission.
He was to go to a star outside the Five Views Realm to collect a precious ore.
When he returned, he would be rewarded with a precious pill that could make up for the loss of power absorbed by the Sage Armament.
At that time, Ye Han trusted his master completely.
He did not think too much about it and left Chongyang with the Thousand Plague Umbrella.
However, when he returned to the Five Views Realm, he heard the news that the Holy Son of the Plague Imperial Palace had stolen a Sage Armament and defected.
The Plague Imperial Palace had issued a wanted order for him and the entire Five Views Realm was after him.
This sudden situation stunned Ye Han, but he quickly figured out the reason.
The goal of the Plague Imperial Palace was very clear.
It was to make him unable to leave the Thousand Plague Umbrella and had to bring it with him.
Otherwise, he would be captured and even lose his freedom.
As long as he brought the Thousand Plague Umbrella with him, his strength would be continuously absorbed and he would be forced to nourish this Sage Armament.
This so-called act of stealing a Sage Armament and defecting had probably been arranged long ago.
After all, if the Holy Son was sucked dry by the Sage Armament, it would be difficult to explain.
However, it did not matter if it was the Holy Son who stole the Sage Armament and escaped.
Moreover, as a Holy Son who had stolen a Sage Armament and defected, even if Ye Han had the intention to expose the Plague Imperial Palace, no one would believe him.
From the beginning, the Plague Imperial Palace was in an invincible position.
When Ye Hans lifespan was exhausted or the Plague Imperial Palace no longer planned to let him nourish the Thousand Plague Umbrella.
They would naturally take back this Sage Armament that had been nurtured greatly.
If he was still not dead by then, there would most likely have been a scene of “the traitor was finally captured after thousands of years of pursuit”.
After hearing Ye Hans description, everyone fell silent.
Especially Li Cheng and Li Wei.
They had heard Ye Hans story since they were young, but they did not expect the truth to be like this.
This was actually a pitiful person.
Cui Heng frowned and fell into deep thought.
Then, he nodded slightly and said, “Theres a secret opening that absorbs the users essence energy on that Thousand Plague Umbrella.
However, Im afraid this essence is not used to nourish the Thousand Plague Umbrella itself…”
As he spoke, he stretched out his right hand and opened his fingers.
A long strip-like object appeared in his palm.
The material was neither gold nor jade.
It was completely golden and about three inches long.
There were very complicated patterns carved on it, and it looked incomparably exquisite.
Cui Heng asked, “Ye Han, do you know about this”
“Is this a key from the Thousand Plague Umbrella” Ye Han looked at it carefully and shook his head.
“I dont know about it.
I didnt even know that there was a key in the Thousand Plague Umbrella.
Eh, thats not right.
How did I know that this was a key”
At this moment, the others also looked at the key with surprise.
“Whats going on Why did I know that this was a key as soon as I saw it”
“The shape of this thing isnt enough for people to instantly determine that its a key, but why did I directly know that it was a key”
“Exalted Immortal, this, whats going on Could this key be some extraordinary treasure”
Everyone present discovered the uniqueness of this key and was extremely surprised.
They had never encountered a similar situation.
“This is a rather mysterious technique.” Cui Heng did not explain much and continued to say to Ye Han, “If Im not wrong, the power that was sucked away was not used to nourish the Thousand Plague Umbrella, but to nourish this key.
Do you know the origin of the Thousand Plague Umbrella” “Its actually for this key!” The expression on Ye Hans face immediately became incomparably complicated.
He muttered, “They want to harm me just for this key!”
However, his face was filled with joy again.
He actually laughed loudly.
“Hahaha, I understand, I understand.
This key is an opportunity for that old thing to break through to a higher realm!
Now, he will never be able to obtain this key.
He will never be able to reach the Peak of the Sixth Realm.
Great, thats great! Hahahaha!”
The old thing he was talking about should be the Sect Master of the Plague Imperial Palace, a Sage at the Myriad Techniques Return to One Realm.
“Theres no hurry to be happy.” Cui Heng waved his hand gently and continued to ask, “Do you know the origin of this Thousand Plague Umbrella”
“This is the ancestral Sage Armament of the Plague Imperial Palace.
Its exact origin is unknown.” Ye Han shook his head gently and said, “120,000 years ago, the Plague Imperial Palace ended their long journey among the starry sky and migrated to Chongyang Star.
“At that time, the Plague Imperial Palace had three Sage Armaments.
The Thousand Plague Umbrella was one of them.
It was considered the oldest Sage Armament in the Plague Imperial Palace.
This is recorded in the books of the Plague Imperial Palace.”
“120,000 years ago” Cui Heng raised his eyebrows slightly.
This period of time was really too long.
After breaking through to the Peak of the Nascent Soul realm, he had only extended his lifespan by 129,600 years.
After an Immortal cultivator entered the Nascent Soul realm, every time they broke through a small realm, the lifespan of their body would increase considerably.
For example, breaking through to the Mid-stage Nascent Soul realm would extend their lifespan by 36,000 years, and breaking through to the Late-stage Nascent Soul realm would extend their lifespan by 48,000 years.
In theory, the limit of their lifespan was 360,000 years.
Hundreds of thousands of years was a lot of time, enough for many things to change, even for a planet.
Before this, the matter with the longest history that Cui Heng had heard was that 10,000 years ago, the Dao God had descended to Daozhou Star with 35 Golden Immortals.
He did not expect to hear something reaching 120,000 years ago.
“What about before they went to Chongyang Star Where was the Plague Imperial Palace” Cui Heng asked again.
“Im not sure.” Ye Han shook his head and said, “The history before coming to Chongyang Star is the sects greatest secret.
Its not written in the books.
Only the previous Sect Masters are qualified to know.”
“I see…” Cui Heng pondered and nodded slightly.” Well, it seems that I have to make a trip to the Plague Imperial Palace.”
“Exalted Immortal, Exalted Immortal!” Ye Han revealed an ecstatic expression when he heard this.
He hurriedly said, “If Exalted Immortal wants to deal with the Plague Imperial Palace, Im willing to do my best to help you.”
“Thats not necessary.” Cui Heng shook his head and said to Pei Qingshu and Li Mingqiong, “Take him away.
Torture him and find out everything he knows, including the situation of the Plague Imperial Palace, its inheritance, secrets, and the knowledge of his 3,000 years of life.
Ill bestow you with Dharmic powers to strip away a persons Immortal True Essence.
After youre done asking, give him a quick death.
This can be considered a leniency.”
He had never planned to spare Ye Han.
This person had spread a plague in Yongzhou and killed countless people.
It would not be too much to cut him into pieces.
It was impossible to let him live.
Ye Han was slightly stunned when he heard this.
Then, he smiled bitterly and actually became a little relaxed.
He bowed to Cui Heng extremely respectfully.
“Exalted Immortal, thank you.”
Then, without needing Pei Qingshu and Li Mingqiong to escort him, he followed the two of them out of the inner hall.
Such a change made everyone present sigh.
Especially Li Cheng and Li Wei.
They looked at Ye Hans departing figure and never expected this legendary figure to have such an ending.
However, it was still an honor to die at the hands of Immortal Venerable Cui.
“Your names are Li Cheng and Li Wei, right”
At this moment, Cui Hengs voice suddenly entered their ears.
The siblings immediately shivered and hurriedly turned around.
They saw Cui Heng looking at them with a smile and asking, “Are you Li Fas descendants, here to seek revenge”
