Chapter 235- Collecting the Returned Prime Stone The palace is made out of some unknown material, its not gold, but not jade either, however, there are also lots of complicated and mysterious runic arrays. The prime stones get shot out from the palace, no-one knows what is inside it. When the people from the three major tribes found the ancient cloud, they sent many experts over for the returned prime stones, but not even god’s prime warriors could enter the palace. Right now, there was a pair of eyes closely watching Ye Wei. No-one could sense its existence, there was also no-one who knew of its existence. It was just observing Ye Wei, as if it saw through the ages. Tens of millions of formless hands reached from all directions towards Ye Wei, and with a ‘sou’ sound, they disappeared. Ye Wei didn’t notice them at all. “The 72 interstellar secrets (1), the bloodline of a Supreme, the Combat Saint’s Golden Lotus, and a scale from the demon tribe. Now, this is interesting, I don’t know how far this little fella can grow.” The owner of the two mysterious eyes laughed to himself, the sound gradually fading into the silence of the void. “I haven’t seen such qualifications in hundreds or thousands of years. This sapling isn’t bad!” Ye Wei was observing the runes engraved on the palace walls. “Hm?” The Combat Saint’s Lotus in between his eyebrows swayed slightly for a fraction of a second, and a ring which was invisible to the naked eye rippled across the middle of his brows. That Golden Lotus passed through the palace with ease, and at that moment, an indescribable feeling flooded Ye Wei’s brain. “So that’s why you can only receive the Returned Prime Stone when you defeat the golden puppets.” As the golden lotus passed through the palace, Ye Wei gained comprehensions regarding many things. The golden puppets would mark itself with the spiritual energy of the person who defeated it. The spiritual mark would then get transmitted into the palace via the rune on the puppet. Only then would the palace shoot out the Returned Prime Stone. And so, people would not be able to receive more than one Returned Prime Stone. “As long as I don’t allow the golden puppets relay the spiritual mark back, then I can receive multiple stones and take them out!” Ye Wei’s eyes were flashing with an unhidden joy. The Golden Lotus in between Ye Wei’s eyebrows was a part of the Combat Saint’s legacy, for some things that even god’s prime warriors can’t comprehend, Ye Wei can with the assistance of the Golden Lotus. “This Golden Lotus is capable of stopping the puppets from transmitting the spiritual mark of the original source!” Ye Wei’s face had inexplicable joy written on it, the Returned Prime Stone’s value was infinite! However, due to there being no way to sell the stones, there was no realistic way to judge the stone’s real value. But, if the Returned Prime Stones were taken outside, their value would be higher than the Bright Moon Yuan Fluid. “Lets try it!” Thinking about it, Ye Wei could not wait any longer, if he could take the Returned Prime Stone outside, then the Ye family would be able to grow extremely fast with the help of many returned prime warriors. The Golden Lotus between Ye Wei’s brows began to ripple with an invisible energy on Ye Wei’s command, this energy completely engulfed him. A “Hong” sound sounded as Ye Wei’s fist landed on the golden puppet, under the energy waves of the golden lotus, the puppet had no way to transmit Ye Wei’s spiritual mark to the main source. Sou Upon the destruction of the puppet, a black crystalline rock shot out from the palace. Shua The Returned Prime Stone landed within Ye Wei’s grasp. “Wow, this is really viable!” Clutching the Returned Prime Stone, Ye Wei’s heart was filled with an indescribable joy as every stone was equivalent to another returned prime warrior! In the 36 towns, there was only a single returned prime warrior, but with the Returned Prime Stones, the Ye family could nurture a large amount of them. They may even have a lineup of near twenty returned prime warriors! Very soon, the Ye family would be the overlord of the 36 neighbouring towns with the Supreme Ye Yu’s treasure, and with these Returned Prime Stones, the Ye family would be equivalent to being one of the four major factions of the Qing province. Even overtaking the super clans wouldn’t be impossible. Peng. Peng. Peng Ye Wei excitedly started grabbing Returned Prime Stones, he defeated 26 puppets in one go, gaining 26 stones. “These 26 stones are equivalent to the Ye family gaining 26 returned prime warriors!” Ye Wei’s heart was giddily jumping away at the stones in his Storage Sack. “However, the lotus is starting to run out of energy, perhaps it would play a larger role later on so I can’t keep collecting the Returned Prime Stones.” Looking at the pitiful amount of energy remaining in the lotus, Ye Wei made his resolve to stop attacking the golden puppets. No matter what, 26 returned prime warriors isn’t a small number, just meeting the prerequisite of being a 10-star condensed prime warrior would be a headache for the Ye family. Due to the Ye family being extremely weak, nurturing 26 10-star condensed prime warriors would also take them quite a while, so these 26 Returned Prime Stones would plentiful for the Ye family right now! “Sorry everyone, due to my personal matters, I have interrupted you guys from obtaining the Returned Prime Stones, now that the problem on my half has been solved, you guys may all continue challenging the Golden Puppets for the stones!” Ye Wei eyed the several freshmen waiting to challenge a Golden Puppet and cupped his hands at them. The freshmen cupped their hands back at Ye Wei, “It’s all fine, don’t worry about it. Brother Ye Wei, please be careful of the Spiritualist Qing Mu!” “Thanks for your concern!” Ye Wei nodded at Hong Hai, “Everyone here are all freshmen, if you have any problems in the future, feel free to come to the Black Dragon Valley to find me for help. I will be leaving first!” Ye Wei stepped onto the starry river and headed to the lonely island in the distance. There was a space rune on the island, if one wanted to leave the Ancient Cloud Realm, they would have to first step onto the island. Ye Wei didn’t help Hong Hai and the others to get obtain a Returned Prime Stone because they were all freshmen to the Thousand Stars Palace, and they would all have to go and obtain their Returned Prime Stones themselves by relying on their own strength or else they would receive punishment for disobeying the palace rules. “Why did Ye Wei get so many stones? What use does he have for them? One can only make use of the Returned Prime Stone to breakthrough to the returned prime realm if they defeated the puppets themselves, so even if he takes them out, there won’t be much point to it.” “Why are you so nosy? Ye Wei is so strong, killing all of those puppets would be extremely easy for him, taking away all those stones would be normal. Previously, weren’t there also people who took the stones out? Only problem would be that the stones would be useless to them.” “You’re right, sigh, having such strength sure is nice eh? We can’t even get a single Returned Prime Stone, but Ye Wei can easily get a few dozen of them.” Watching Ye Wei’s leaving figure, the freshmen discussed amongst themselves in low voices. However, what they could not imagine was they Ye Wei didn’t take the Returned Prime Stones for himself, but for other people! Standing upon the lonely island, amongst the fishy smell and the ocean breeze, Ye Wei saw a majestic palace in the distance, and then he stood upon the spacial runicle. “Go!” Ye Wei command the runicle to leave the mysterious Ancient Cloud realm, and it took him to the member of the royal Helian clan who was waiting for Ye Wei outside. Seated next to the middle aged royal Helian clan member inside the imperial runicle, Ye Wei went straight back towards his own residencial villa. Sitting within the silence, Ye Wei sat cross-legged. “Ever since breaking into the returned prime realm, I can finally continue cultivating the Eternal Star Physique (1), and I can also use the Bright Moon Yuan liquid that I got from the Qing Shi clan, there are only eight days until the Black Dragon Ranking Tournament. I can’t waste time.” Ye Wei thought as he entered seclusion as soon as he reached his residencial villa. Within the villa of the Spiritualist Qing Mu, he wore a green robe, facing his kneeling subordinates Shi Kun, Qian Dao and Zhou Huan with a cold glint in his eyes. “You said that the second Ye Wei broke into the returned prime realm, he could release power of which is on par with a 5-star returned prime warrior? Not only that, but he beat all three of you one strike?” Qing Mu looked at the kneeling three people, his voice tinted with the coldest of ice. “Yes!” “That brat Ye Wei is too mysterious, we don’t even know which body strengthening technique he cultivates. Prior to breaking into the returned prime realm, his body was comparable to a 4 star returned prime warrior! We had no way of stopping him from getting the Returned Prime Stone.” They had followed Qing Mu for far too long, they knew how ruthless he was when dealing with people, and they could tell that he was incomparably infuriated! Qing Mu’s eyes flashed with a cold glint as he scanned Shi Kun, Qian Dao and Zhou Huan. He seemed to be in thought for a little while before screaming. “His body was at the strength of a 4-star returned prime warrior before he broke through to the returned prime realm? What type of body strengthening technique can allow one to do that? Not only that, but the second he broke through to the returned prime realm, he could erupt with the strength of a 5-star returned prime warrior? You three better not be looking for an excuse in order to try to hide your miserable failure!” “Hmph! Don’t think that I don’t know you three cowards well enough. That brat got 9 howls from the dragon statue, that means that his potential is unmeasurable no? You guys don’t dare to offend him is that right now?” “Nice one, you guys didn’t offend him, but instead, you have offended ME! The spiritualist! Have i been showing too much… kindness recently?” Qing Mu’s had a very dark expression on his face. Using the strength and power of an 8-star returned prime warrior, he forcefully shoved the three underlings away. Facing the horrifying majestic pressure of an 8-star returned prime warrior, they could only bow and kneel to Qing Mu. “Oh Spiritualist Qing Mu, you are mistaken!” the three were petrified and were almost beyond words. However, Ye Wei’s body really did have the strength of a 4-star returned prime warrior before breaking through, and his light clone had also reached the same level, the three of them were helpless before this and couldn’t stop Ye Wei from obtaining his stone. But then again, who knew that Ye Wei could have cultivated such a powerful body strengthening technique and could do so? And also erupt with the power of a 5-star returned prime warrior upon just breaking through? This incident would entirely impossible, but when it fell onto Ye Wei, it would happen time and time again. The three lackeys would also like to know what is going on, but who would tell them? Hi everyone, this is my first time posting on here. I am very happy to have finally translated this chapter of Cult of the Sacred Runes as it was my second light novel and I loved it. Unfortunately, the translator was gone by the time I caught up and I realised that no-one had continued it either on the official site or on the forums so I decided to give it a shot. Thanks everyone for reading and I may be back to post more translated chapters of this novel later. Also just going to apologise for my awful grammar. Thanks all!
