Library of Heaven is Path
1771 Luo Ruoxin
The person standing before the marble stand and taking away the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn was none other than Luo Ruoxin, who had vanished without a trace earlier!
Zhang Xuan did not think that she would have already made her way there!
Should it not have been impossible to get there without the Prime Amulet?
How did she manage to get in there earlier than him?
More importantly… it was due to his possession of the Library of Heaven's Path that he had been able to browse through so many books quickly. Was Ruoxin capable of such a feat as well?
Hong long long!
Before Zhang Xuan could make sense of those doubts, along with the picking up of the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn from the marble platform, the entire Temple of Confucius began trembling intensely. It was as if the cornerstone holding the entire place together had been removed, such that the entire dimension was beginning to tear apart.
The first to bear the brunt of the blow was the Prime Hall. A flood of devastating energy gushed into the room, tearing down everything in its path.
However, standing by the marble platform, Luo Ruoxin seemed to be completely unfazed by the flood of energy.
A brilliant burst of light shone out from the book. The book attempted to flee from her grasp, but no matter how it struggled, it was unable to break free.
Amid the intense trembling, the surrounding space distorted, causing the seal on the Prime Hall to break apart.
"The Great Codex of Spring and Autumn is finally out!"
"Quick! Someone must be trying to assimilate it!"
"Who obtained it? Is it that Zhang Xuan or my descendants?"
Roars echoed all around the area as many silhouettes charged into the Prime Hall.
They were the Ancient Sages who had been camping outside the Prime Hall.
Previously, they had been kept out due to the seal that Kong shi had placed around the Prime Hall, so they had no choice but to wait patiently outside. However, the fact that the Prime Hall was on the verge of collapse meant that someone had already gotten to the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn.
This was a clear sign that it was their time to make a move, and the ultimate outcome of this battle was banking on them.
"It's that young lady!"
"She is… Luo Ruoxin?"
Seeing the figure holding the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn, the crowd was stunned.
They had thought that it would be the master teacher named Zhang Xuan who obtained the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn. Yet, contrary to their expectations, the one who eventually obtained it was actually the seemingly inconspicuous young lady following behind him, Luo Ruoxin!
"Little lass, you won't be able to assimilate it. Why don't you hand it to me instead?"
Seeing the tremendous power pulsating from the book, the eyes of the White Overlord reddened in excitement. Unable to curb its desire any longer, it raised its claws to strike Luo Ruoxin.
Zhang Xuan was completely caught off guard by the happenings. He had not expected the seal to break down to the extent that even Ancient Sages would make an appearance.
In an instant, his face turned incredibly livid.
His first reaction was to dash forward to save Luo Ruoxin, but as he did so, he saw the eyebrows of the young lady coldly shooting up.
Devastating torrent of energy burst forth and surged into the heavens. Shockwaves rippled into the surroundings, forming a protective barrier around her.
The claws of the White Overlord fell upon the protective barrier, but they did not even leave a mark on it.
"This is… the strength of an Ancient Sage?" Zhang Xuan narrowed his eyes in shock.
The strength that Luo Ruoxin was displaying was something that only Ancient Sages were capable of pulling forth. Not only so, she was even stronger than the White Overlord!
As soon as Luo Ruoxin brought out the strength of an Ancient Sage, it became clear that the struggling Great Codex of Spring and Autumn was gradually being stripped of its strength to oppose her.
"This is bad. She's on the verge of assimilating it. We can't let her succeed!" Ancient Sage Yan Qing roared in horror.
The next moment, a massive halberd darted through the air to strike down Luo Ruoxin.
Its strength pierced right through the fabric of spacetime, causing everything to seemingly slow to a halt. A gigantic dimension rift was forcefully torn open, and it swiftly expanded to over ten thousand li.
That was an attack from a Blood Reincarnation realm Ancient Sage, one of the strongest experts in the world. With just a wave of his hand, he could easily summon devastating destruction.
Before this might could even come close, Zhang Xuan, who was in close proximity to Luo Ruoxin, felt as if the bones within his body were on the verge of being crushed. His body, which had been tempered by the Empyrean Heavenly Flame, seemed to be as brittle as a child's toy.
He felt his life slowly creeping to an end when Luo Ruoxin suddenly raised her hand.
A warm glow swiftly shrouded him and escorted him out of the battlefield.
Following which, the halberd crashed right down upon Luo Ruoxin.
Without the slightest change in her expression, the young lady grasped the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn tightly in one hand while raising her other hand toward the halberd.
Pointing her finger toward the immensely destructive weapon, she tapped lightly.

The halberd was halted on the spot. Ancient Sage Yan Qing's face reddened as the halberd flew out of his hand. Fresh blood spurted frenziedly from his mouth as he was furiously knocked backward.
"This…" Zhang Xuan narrowed his eyes.
All along, he had thought that Luo Ruoxin's cultivation was around the same level as his. He did not think that she would actually be an Ancient Sage, and an incredibly powerful one at that!
With a single tap of her finger, she was actually able to send Ancient Sage Yan Qing, who was known to be the strongest Ancient Sage of the current era, flying. Could it be that she had already transcended the level of Blood Reincarnation, achieving the little-known Void Shattering realm?
If that was the case… what was her true background?
While Zhang Xuan was still figuring out what was going on, the space behind the young lady tore open like a ripped sheet of paper, causing a humongous dark abyss to appear.
"She's going to escape! If we don't stop her right now, the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn could very well become hers!" Ancient Sage Yan Qing cried anxiously.
There were still a couple of Ancient Sages in the area who were hesitating after seeing how Luo Ruoxin easily halted the White Overlord's attacks. However, knowing that they would really lose the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn if they did not make a move, they immediately charged forth to join the fray.
Old Geezer Yu concentrated his zhenqi and created a pair of phantasmagoric hands in the air. Those pair of sinister hands swiped viciously toward Luo Ruoxin.
Ancient Sage Yan Qing took up his halberd once more, and with a powerful spin, he tossed it forward with astounding momentum.
A cold glint flashed across the White Overlord's eyes as it channeled all of its strength and swiped down. In that moment, it felt as though even time had stopped.
All of the Ancient Sages from those three major powers made a move simultaneously in an attempt to stop Luo Ruoxin. In an instant, it felt as if the world had regressed back to the state of chaos before creation. The surrounding light distorted from the sheer concentration of energy that had gathered in the area, plunging the entire Temple of Confucius into darkness.
Ancient Sages were already the most powerful existence in the world, and more than a dozen of them were making a move simultaneously. This was a force that could even knock down the entire Master Teacher Continent!
"Have you asked my permission before doing this?" a furious shout echoed by the side.
Following which, a barrage of sword qi flooded forward, hindering the movements of the Ancient Sages.
"Zhang Hongtian, don't be a fool! She isn't from the Master Teacher Pavilion!" Ancient Sage Yan Qing bellowed in rage as he twisted the halberd to fend off the barrage of sword qi.
The halberd collided with the tip of Zhang Hongtian's sword, and Zhang Hongtian was forced to retreat several steps as his face turned ghastly pale.
It was unfortunate, but he was still slightly lacking against the strongest expert of the Hundred Schools of Philosophers.
"She's the person whom one of my descendants loves, and that makes her a part of our Zhang Clan as well!" Zhang Hongtian replied coolly as he raised his sword once more, indicating his determination to protect Luo Ruoxin.
However, no matter how strong he was as an individual, there was no way that he stood a chance against the collaboration of so many Ancient Sages, especially since Ancient Sage Yan Qing alone was much stronger than him.
The combined prowess of the Ancient Sages continued steadily advancing toward Luo Ruoxin. All Zhang Hongtian succeeded in doing was stalling for a little more time.
At this moment, Luo Ruoxin was still holding the Great Codex of Spring and Autumn tightly, seemingly attempting to assimilate it. The situation was truly not in her favor. No matter how powerful she was, there was no way that she could survive the simultaneous assault of so many Ancient Sages.
Realizing the grave danger that the young lady was in, Zhang Xuan roared in fury. He immediately summoned the Ancient Sage corpse, Infernal Blacksaber, and Vicious to help, but before he could make a move, a burst of saber qi suddenly shot over from the distance.
This saber qi reflected the brilliance of the sun and the moon, and it was the final straw that resulted in the utter collapse of the surrounding space.
"Milady, I have completed the arrangements as requested. I'll help you keep them at bay for the time being!"
The missing Wu Chen appeared before everyone.
