No Way People Find Cultivation Difficult, Right? - Chapter 106
Thousands of kilometers away in Qingzhou Ancient City.
At the edge of the cliff.
Ye Ping was astonished too.
He did not expect his Four Thunder sword momentum to be that horrifying.
It was an instant kill!
He found it outrageous too.
He thought that he would at most be able to break through the crowd, but he didn’t expect it to be an instant kill.
‘When did I become so strong?’
Ye Ping’s heart was full of doubts.
However, soon, a scene appeared in front of Ye Ping and made him temporarily stop thinking.
It was because a resentful spirit appeared in front of him.
Yes, a resentful spirit appeared.
Ye Ping was a bit stunned and had no idea what happened. ‘Why did a vengeful soul appear out of nowhere?’
‘These bunch of guys are heretical cultivators in the first place. They cultivate using the resentment of all beings, and once they die, they would turn into resentful spirits.’
He looked over and saw that there were 312 resentful spirits.
At this moment, the Fiendcelestial Cult devotees also snapped back to their senses.
Everything happened too quickly just now and they died without feeling anything.
At this moment, they snapped back to their senses.
Their first reaction was grief.
No one expected Ye Ping to carry out a massacre.
They thought that Ye Ping was a pushover who would be at the mercy of others, but they didn’t expect him to be an expert who hid his impressive abilities.
They were furious.
They got schemed against and turned into resentful spirits.
Although they did not die, they had turned into resentful spirits, and if they didn’t reincarnate, they would have to suffer the pain of the Thunder Punishment every once in a while. They might even get captured by their peers and get refined into heretic artifacts. By then, their lives would be a living hell.
At the thought of this, the spirits wailed in agony and began to feel exasperated after being sad.
They couldn’t suppress their anger.
“I want to kill you.”
“I’m going to pluck your tendons and skin you alive.”
“I’m going to drink your blood.”
“Do you think that you can escape by killing us? We’re heretical cultivators who will turn into menacing ghosts after we die and you’ll end up in an even more terrible state.”
They wailed and shrieked in exasperation.
‘That’s how resentful spirits are like. Their resentment will affect their minds and the most trivial matter would drive them into derangement too.’
However, just as they were shrieking, they were suddenly stunned again.
The reason being, Ye Ping didn’t show the slightest fear and instead… there was some joy in his eyes too.
The Fiendcelestial Cult devotees were dumbfounded.
‘What do you mean?’
‘Big Brother, we’ve already turned into menacing ghosts, can you cut us some slack?’
‘Can you at least look like you’re scared?’
‘What do you mean by smiling?’
The spirits were dumbfounded, and all of a sudden, they couldn’t understand what Ye Ping was thinking.
However, in the next moment, a golden beam of light appeared that confused them.
“Golden Light of Expiation?”
“Damn it, the Golden Light of Expiation? Are you a Daoist expert?”
“You have the Golden Light of Expiation, but you chose not to take it out earlier?”
More than 300 resentful spirits were dumbfounded. They did not expect that Ye Ping actually had the Golden Light of Expiation.
They were scared out of their wits right on the spot, and their anger was replaced by horror.
They were truly horrified.
The Four Thunder Sword Technique was a Yang technique that could kill them easily.
On the other hand, the Golden Light of Expiation was the nemesis of the heretical cultivators.
It was fatal to touch.
Unfortunately, before they could react, Ye Ping had already attacked.
When they were humans, Ye Ping was a little wary of them.
However, after they turned into resentful spirits, he was no longer flustered.
When he was in the Linhe Ghost Grave, Ye Ping was already aware that his expiation method could be used for dealing with the fancy tricks of the resentful spirits.
No matter how strong they were, they would be subdued by the Golden Light of Expiation.
With one shot of the Golden Light of Expiation, the hundreds of resentful spirits shrieked miserably.
They had deep resentment and had done countless inhumane things in their lives. Hence, under the Golden Light of Expiation, they would have to compensate for the karma.
Wisps of white smoke wafted upwards and all the resentful spirits that the Golden Light of Expiation had shone on were expiated completely without a trace of remnants. They would not be sent to the reincarnation cycle either because they were evil spirits. If they could not get rid of their sins, they would only die.
Just like that, several power of merit entered Ye Ping’s body.
That made him even more excited.
“Don’t run, stop running, didn’t we agree to sit down and have a good talk?”
“Let’s talk then, what are you guys running for?”
The remaining 200 resentful spirits escaped and fled to the surroundings.
Ye Ping panicked immediately and hurriedly cast various rays of Golden Light of Expiation. He would not let go of them.
“Brother, please let us off. We’re wrong, we were really wrong.”
“Senior, we really didn’t mean it, we were just joking with you, we didn’t mean to harm you.”
“Senior, I have something urgent to handle, let’s chat again next time.”
The Fiendcelestial Cult followers had completely burst into tears.
As humans, they were killed by Ye Ping.
After they became ghosts, they were expiated.
‘There’s a funeral too? From soup to nuts?’
“What’s so urgent that you can’t stay for some tea before leaving?”
“Fellow Daoist, there’s a new tea available on the market.”
Ye Ping frantically cast the rays of Golden Light of Expiation and the power of merit surged into his body.
In just less than an hour, there were 300 more power of merit in his body.
In the beginning, they were chasing Ye Ping, but it became the other way round instead.
After chasing for six hours, Ye Ping finally caught up with the last resentful spirit.
“Please, let me go, I was just following the crowd. I didn’t even want to come to kill you. Please have mercy on me and let me off, will you?”
“Exalted Immortal, the Fiendcelestial Cult has sent numerous disciples, and among them are hundreds of commanders and they have greater resentment. Expiating one of them is better than expiating me alone. Why don’t I lead you the way while you let me off?”
The devotee was kneeling on the ground and begging for mercy with no concern for his pride.
Ye Ping immediately snapped back to his senses and retracted the Golden Light of Expiation.
“How many disciples are there?”
He recalled that there were many Fiendcelestial Cult disciples, but he wasn’t clear how many there were exactly.
“There are at least three thousand of them and the 72 Earthly Fiends of the Fiendcelestial Cult are here too. Their resentment power is simply frightening. If you expiate them, you’d definitely become an immortal immediately.”
The resentful spirit sounded extremely agitated and wanted to instigate Ye Ping to target the others instead.
“Oh, yes, Exalted Immortal, I can also draw you a map of the hiding places of the Fiendcelestial Cult. There are at least 7,000 to 8,000 people in total. If all of them are expiated, you’d definitely go through Immortal Ascension.”
“Besides, you can rest assured that they are all new disciples who can be killed easily. Before I turned into a resentful spirit, I could kill ten of them at once.”
It was extremely agitated and had resorted to all means for the sake of surviving.
Ye Ping perked up even more when he heard that there were hiding places.
However, he could not trust this spirit completely, lest he got bewitched.
Thinking of this, Ye Ping could not help but frown.
“You betrayed your fellow cultists. Do you think I will believe you?”
Ye Ping was doubtful and apprehensive.
The resentful spirit hurriedly spoke up.
“Exalted Immortal, don’t worry, after this incident, I have already understood that evil will never win and I’ve gotten a huge enlightenment. Besides, those bastards are extremely malicious and evil. They go around creating trouble. That’s why this isn’t called a betrayal of my fellow cultists. Instead, I’m exterminating evil for the greater good. I will not be in communion with evil.”
“Ah, Exalted Immortal, I think that I’ve turned over a new leaf.”
The resentful spirit in front of Ye Ping was rather eloquent and its righteous words made him hesitate to kill it.
Ye Ping wasn’t interested in the map at all.
‘I can’t possibly go raid their lair, right?’
‘With my abilities?’
Sensing the calmness in Ye Ping’s eyes, the spirit seemed to have detected what he was thinking.
It immediately spoke again.
“Exalted Immortal, I don’t mean anything else. I just think that your ability to condense the Golden Light of Expiation will be enough for you to deal with them. As long as you can find where they are hiding, you can expiate every single one of them.”
However, as soon as he heard that, Ye Ping was astonished.
“The Golden Light of Expiation can be used to expiate you directly?”
