Chapter 1015: The Cycle Of Collapse
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
As he watched Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar descend onto Mount Baiyun, Cai Fengzhou couldn’t help himself as he heaved a heavy sigh into the sky.
At this point, the situation was completely out of the hands of the Great Void Sect.
Even though it wasn’t Zhu Yi’s original body inside the Small Divine Lands World and was only an avatar, Cai Fengzhou knew that Chen Xingyu and the others were no match for him.
The Great Sun Avatar vanished into the cave entrance projected at the top of mountain. All this happened so quickly that Mu Xuan, Shan Xiang, Ding Runfeng and the others couldn’t even react.
However, a chilly feeling ran up their spines as they felt as if something terrible was about to happen. They were already frustrated, and this made them even more embittered.
In the next moment, Mount Baiyun trembled once vigorously.
The force of this was far greater than before. If what came before was only a slight shudder, then Mount Baiyun and the areas around it just experienced a real earthquake.
Cai Fengzhou had the best understanding of the flow of spiritual energy in the Small Divine Lands World, and his perception of what was going on was the most acute as well.
Translucent streams of purple energy started to surround Mount Baiyun as sounds of someone chanting a book rang out with ear-splitting loudness.
Shi Tianhao was still in his standoff against Cai Fengzhou, and the radiance on the tip of the Stone Sword became brighter and brighter. The Horizon City rotating in the sky was gradually coming to a stop.
He smiled faintly and said, “Do you wish to continue?”
Cai Fengzhou’s expression was inscrutable but he felt the dreadful bitterness in his heart. He hadn’t lost the battle, and the victor between his scuffle with Shi Tianhao was still unclear. However, there was no meaning in continuing on as he could already foresee how things were going to unfold.
Purple energy encircled Mount Baiyun as a light pillar surged into the sky and pierced right through the heavens above.
Rays of light permeated outward in all directions and resembled independent pathways.
On the ground, with Mount Baiyun as the central point, pathways that flashed with light began to appear at the same time. Large volumes of air could be seen rushing through these radiating pathways.
“The Veins of Heaven and Earth…” Shan Xiang, Ding Runfeng and the others came from the Great Void Sect and they were relatively knowledgeable. However, what weighed down their hearts was the fact that the light patterns formed by the Veins of Heaven and Earth was starting to change with a speed visible to the naked eye.
The degree of change wasn’t very big, but everything was really happening.
For Shan Xiang and the others, this wasn’t something they wanted to see. As the direct disciples of the Great Void Sect, they understood the situation of Mount Baiyun in the Divine Lands all those years ago very well, and knew that if the flow of spiritual energy in the Small Divine Lands World remained unchanged, it was beneficial for the Great Void Sect.
Complicated light patterns lit up between Heaven and Earth as the entire Small Divine Lands World trembled.
The disciples from the Great Void Sect were crestfallen. “Are the cultivators from the Celestial Sect of Wonders going to assimilate the Crucible of the Divine Lands?”
“How can it be that easy?” A frail and weak voice came out from the Six Appearances Sword. “The flow of spiritual energy in the Small Divine Lands World has been affected, but they are still far from establishing communication with the original soul of this destiny-level magic treasure. They are far from assimilating the entire magic treasure.”
Despite his words, the voice of the Six Appearances Sword was solemn and it was fairly obvious there was a tinge of sullenness in his voice as well.
He knew very well that Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar was still quite a distance away from assimilating the Crucible of the Divine Lands. However, the things that he was about to do inside the inner regions of the Crucible of the Divine Lands could lead to severe consequences.
The Zheng Yi Holy Man and the Xuan Lin Holy Man were outside. However, Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar, his Avatar of Ares and Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar were outside as well.
The Small Divine Lands World had been relatively quiet all this while, and this meant that the competition between the two forces were at an impasse. The expedition of their respective disciples into Mount Baiyun also presented several problems.
The situation inside Mount Baiyun was bound to affect the contest between the two elders outside the Crucible of the Divine Lands.
At this moment, outside the Small Divine Lands World, Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares had one hand on the Small Divine Lands World while his other hand pointed toward the Two Elements of Creation Formation in the sky.
The Two Elements of Creation Formation stretched out explosively as Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar let go of his claws and burst in front of the Zheng Yi Holy Man.
The Zheng Yi Holy Man’s brows creased as he watched the purple energy inside the Small Divine Lands World grow thicker, and the white energies were being gradually pushed back.
The initial equilibrium between the two parties was starting to lose its balance, and the unfortunate thing was that the Great Void Sect was on the losing end.
“Something’s happening in the Small Divine Lands World. Something’s happened on Mount Baiyun…” The Zheng Yi Holy Man and the Xuan Lin Holy Man immediately realized what happened.
A thousand miles of embankment could be ruined by a single ant nest.
The gap became bigger and bigger from a single misstep till the point of no return, till it was impossible to reverse the situation.
At this point, the rift in standards between the younger generation of disciples caused this unbalance in the overall situation, and even affected the outcome of the battle between Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao and Cai Fengzhou.
Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar was a step ahead of Cai Fengzhou in entering the mountain and stole the initiative, thus he was able to cooperate with Lin Feng from the inside.
The final outcome was that the contest between Lin Feng and the Zheng Yi Holy Man lost its balance as well, and the impasse had been broken – Lin Feng had taken the initiative in assimilating the Crucible of the Divine Lands.
Every bit of failure added up and created a chain reaction with substantially severe consequences.
Inside the Small Divine Lands World, Cai Fengzhou, Chen Xingyu and Guo Chaoyang and the rest were still working hard.
They were very clear about the delicateness of the situation. Even though pessimism surfaced in their hearts, they still tried their best to turn the tables around.
Otherwise, the snowball was about to get bigger as it rolled down the slope and everything would be reflected on the battle between the elders at the highest level of this contest, and all the pressure would land upon the shoulders of the Zheng Yi Holy Man and the Xuan Lin Holy Man.
Outside the Small Divine Lands World, the Xuan Lin Holy Man took a deep breath. “Perhaps Junior Cai was unable to defeat Zhu Yi and Shi Tianhao, or perhaps something else happened?” Thoughts spun around in his head but his movement was as fast as ever as he rushed towards the Small Divine Lands World.
Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar gave no quarter as it pounced to intercept the Xuan Lin Holy Man.
The Cang Heaven Spell Blade didn’t follow Shi Tianhao into the Small Divine Lands World, and teamed up with Wang Lin against the Xuan Lin Holy Man.
If his opponent was just Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar, the Xuan Lin Holy Man had enough confidence to defeat his adversary. However, the addition of the Cang Heaven Spell Blade made things very different.
This magic item had existed since the Antiquity Age, and was already in the Mahayana level and possessed immense power. It was also a sharp and aggressive weapon and even the Xuan Lin Holy Man didn’t dare to underestimate its existence.
It was hard to say whether the Xuan Lin Holy Man was able to defeat the alliance between the Cang Heaven Spell Blade and Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar. Even if he could, it would take a long time before victory could be determined.
The Zheng Yi Holy Man gripped onto the Small Divine Lands World while he raised his other hand upwards. The Great Void Holy Pavilion shimmered above his palm and crashed against the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
During the battle of Xiling City, the Great Void Holy Pavilion had come into direct contact with the Two Elements of Creation Formation before. The outcome of the battle was that the Great Void Holy Pavilion ruthless tore apart the layers of light formed by the power of the Endless Extremes of the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
This time, the Great Void Pavilion slammed against the Two Elements of Creation Formation once more – except the latter gave no quarter at all and held its own against the Great Void Holy Pavilion.
The giant holy pavilion was like a resting place for the Gods in the Heavens, and gave an aura as if it could contain the entire Starry Sea and the void space around it. Lights flashed incessantly within it, and songs and chants could be heard as well.
However, the world of light formed by the Two Elements of Creation Formation interrupted its progress and there was no way the Great Void Holy Pavilion could proceed.
The divine light from the Great Void Holy Pavilion touched everything and it felt like the universe above was its backyard. However, the Two Elements of Creation Formation threw down a fence in the middle of it all and separated the entire area into two.
“It’s very different from back in Xiling City.” Lin Feng’s voice was casual.
The Zheng Yi Holy Man observed the center of the Two Elements of Creation Formation and watched the forty-nine light dots that glimmered within. His eyes squinted a little before they returned normal as he said, “It is indeed different.”
With that, the hand that was holding up the Great Void Holy Pavilion moved as he started to cast another spell. White clouds concentrated as golden lights flashed between them. There appeared to be uncountable human figures who were chanting the same song together between the flickering lights and the layers of white clouds.
A tiny world appeared on the palm of the Zheng Yi Holy Man – this world permeated with saintly songs that continued for all eternity as if the entire world was a celestial paradise, as if this was the promised land.
The Great Void Nine Heavenly Spells, the Eight Heavens of the Great Void – the Shen Heaven Holy Paradise!
The concept of power of the Shen Heaven Holy Paradise was complementary to that of the Great Void Holy Pavilion. Suddenly, the Great Void Holy Pavilion experienced a riling change and unleashed the Great Void Holy Paradise. It grew together with the strength of the Zheng Yi Holy Man as it crashed toward the Two Elements of Creation Formation once again.
Lin Feng’s Two Elements of Creation Formation had his forty-nine Two Elements Micro-Dust as the core of the formation and this led to a vast increase in its power. This was quite clear as it was now able to hold its own against the Great Void Holy Pavilion, which was a destiny-level magic treasure.
However, the channeling of the Great Void Holy Pavilion by Kuang Heng and the Xuan Lin Holy Man was very different from when it was being channeled by the Zheng Yi Holy Man.
Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares’ expression remained the same as it continued to direct the Two Elements of Creation Formation while it exerted pressure on the Small Divine Lands World.
His Thunder Dragon Avatar grinned and said, “It’s different now.”
With that, the colossal white-colored thunder dragon crackled with blinding lightning as the vastness of the world flickered in his eyes.
His giant physical body was transiting between virtual and reality – it was a physical dragon body that was bursting with demonic powers in one moment, and transformed into layers of light shadows in the next. It was very similar to second-level immortal soul stage cultivators and their Virtual Entity.
In the next moment, the Two Elements Origins-Returning Mystic World Spell enveloped the Zheng Yi Holy Man.
The Zheng Yi Holy Man’s pupils contracted as he watched this scene. He combined his powers with the Great Void Holy Pavilion and attempted to break through the Two Elements Origins-Returning Mystic World Spell, but the Avatar of Ares directed the Two Elements of Creation Formation and threw it back at the Zheng Yi Holy Man at the same time, and swept up the Great Void Holy Pavilion and the Great Void Holy Paradise.
Both parties ended up in yet another impasse.
However, due to the effects of the Two Elements Origins-Returning Mystic World Spell, the Zheng Yi Holy Man’s connection to the Small Divine Lands World was cut off.
Purple light flashed once in the eyes of the Avatar of Ares as the Small Divine Lands World quickly turned purple and the white cloud energies were forced back wave after wave.
A light that was never before seen in the eyes of the Zheng Yi Holy Man lit up. His gaze oscillated between the Thunder Dragon Avatar and the Avatar of Ares as the aura around his body grew ominously dangerous.
Lin Feng watched him and smiled faintly, “What, you wish to use the Power-Destroying Catastrophe to force my original body here?”
