The downburst in the Starry Sea was weakening. With the help of the Supreme Heavenly Mirror, the Zheng Yi Holy Man managed to chase Lin Feng down.
He stared at Lin Feng’s back view and did not speak for some time.
Lin Feng did not turn back to look at him, the Xuan Lin Holy Man and Cai Fengzhou. He only said, “Once this matter is settled, I will return to the Divine Lands. Please excuse yourselves, my fellow cultivators.”
He dragged the door to the Starry Sea that belonged to him and left the boundaries of the downburst. After that, he tapped on the huge door beside him lightly. The door to the Starry Sea opened to both sides. Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares and Thunder Dragon Avatar then brought the Crucible of the Divine Lands as they stepped into the door.
As the door closed slowly, the Zheng Yi Holy Man remained silent and did not say anything else much.
Lin Feng closed the door to the Starry Sea of the Heavenly Grandmaster Grand Sage forcefully, by tapping on the power of the downburst. But this was something that the Zheng Yi Holy Man and the others couldn’t do.
Not to even mention that they did not have the ability to control the downburst, even if they could, Lin Feng would have disappeared far away by now.
Even if they tried to attack forcefully through using a part of the powers of the Supreme Heavenly Mirror, they might not be able to achieve the desired effect.
The Xuan Lin Holy Man and Cai Fengzhou remained silent too. The two of them turned their heads to look at the downburst which had not settled down yet. At this instant, the two of them were not in the mood to speak.
The Zheng Yi Holy Man brought the Xuan Lin Holy Man and Cai Fengzhou as they left the boundaries of the downburst too.
The downburst surged with ferocity, but retreated with speed too. The starlight disappeared gradually and the Star Tomb that originated from the center of the downburst had ceased to exist by now.
The Star Tomb was formed by starlight and could not be seen normally. As the four doors to the Starry Sea combined, they were able to gather the starlight around to construct a huge palace hall, which enabled the Star Tomb to reveal its form.
The Zheng Yi Holy Man placed his hands behind his back and he looked at the vast sky of stars that regained normalcy slowly. His snow-white hair swayed in the wind and his calm gaze flashed a little. He was thinking of something.
Cai Fengzhou was silent and exhibited her powers. Chen Xingyun, Guo Chaoyang and the other disciples landed amidst the sky of stars.
“Cultivating in the Starry Sea and undergoing the Baptism of the Original Stellar Light is a rare opportunity. All of you must grab this opportunity.” Cai Fengzhou did not say anything much and only instructed simply.
Chen Xingyun, Guo Chaoyang, Ding Runfeng and the others looked at one another. They did not now what happened at the Star Tomb. Since their elders did not mention, they were not pressed to ask either. After they greeted their elders together, they followed Cai Fengzhou’s instructions and started to cultivate in this sky of stars.”
Previously, before they entered the Small Divine Lands World formed by the Crucible of the Divine Lands, they had only just entered the Ancient Desolate Galaxy. The Zheng Yi Holy Man and the others felt the battle that was going on near the door to the Starry Sea around Lin Feng, thus they rushed over. The bunch of junior disciples were yet to understand the brilliance of the Starry Sea.
Although they were unsure of what’s going on, they did not think too much either. They put their minds to their cultivations.
The mission that the Xuan Lin Holy Man designed and left for them earlier was like a huge rock that weighed down on their minds. They did not dare to slack off.
As they looked at the bunch of junior disciples cultivating seriously, the Xuan Lin Holy Man and Cai Fengzhou were comforted. But following that, they felt a sense of loss.
Only Chen Xingyu and this batch of disciples could be afforded this opportunity. The other disciples in the Great Void Sect missed out on this opportunity because of varying reasons.
For the rest of the junior disciples in the future, it was even worse.
Without the door to the Starry Sea, this was such an embarrassing scene.
Whereas for the Celestial Sect of Wonders, which had the door to the Starry Sea, they could enter anytime they wanted. Although the Starry Sea did not exactly belong to the Celestial Sect of Wonders, they possessed a stable pathway into the Starry Sea.
…More accurately speaking, they had two pathways.
As they thought of this, the Xuan Lin Holy Man and Cai Fengzhou were even more bitter.
This time, the Great Void Sect returned with almost nothing as they went into the Ancient Desolate Galaxy. They even made some losses.
To seize control of the door to the Starry Sea of the Heavenly Grandmaster Grand Sage, the Zheng Yi Holy Man resisted the downburst as he advanced forward. He furthered his control of the Supreme Heavenly Mirror, which could delay the recovery of the mirror.
Although it was not till a great magnitude, a slight delay could prove costly to the Great Void Sect.
If the Great Void Sect managed to sieve out some rewards, then it’d be fine. But eventually, they achieved nothing.
This was the reason why the Zheng Yi Holy Man, Xuan Lin Holy Man, Cai Fengzhou and the rest were feeling down.
The Xuan Lin Holy Man’s voice was deep, as if he was saying something. It also seemed like he was mumbling to himself, “Celestial Sect of Wonders now control two doors to the Starry Sea…”
“Difficult!” Cai Fengzhou shook his head. After he said the word ‘difficult’, he stopped speaking.
When Lin Feng and the others had been trapped by the downburst and had yet to free themselves, the Great Void Sect should have tapped on the Supreme Heavenly Mirror despite the fact that it would have delayed its recovery. In that way, at least they would have a chance at obtaining the door to the Starry Sea.
But Cai Fengzhou was not in a position to comment on this. After all, the person who made the decision earlier was his elder, the Zheng Yi Holy Man.
The Zheng Yi Holy Man seemed to have realized that Cai Fengzhou had something else to say and he said, “It’s my error. Fengzhou, you don’t have to hold your words back.”
Cai Fengzhou sighed, “In the end, no one could have predicted what happened. Under such a circumstance, Lin Feng was still able to emerge victorious. Otherwise, your decision would have been perfect.”
He laughed bitterly, “It’s just that we are still the losers in the end.”
The Xuan Lin Holy Man said, “He possesses two doors now, thus he will be an enemy to all. Even if the demons don’t find him, others from the human race will be watching him.”
“Even the Great Qin Empire, Ancient Longevity World, Purple Clouds Sect, Royal House of the Northern Tribes and other great powers will be tempted to go against him…”
“The stronger the Celestial Sect of Wonders become, the pressure on the others will be greater. With us around, he can’t just exert pressure on the others. And if he does not manage the situation well, he may be isolated.”
Cai Fengzhou looked at him, “But if we look at things in the other way, if he manages it well, his powers will be boosted greatly.”
“Wait…” Cai Fengzhou’s expression changed and he looked at the Xuan Lin Holy Man. He saw the Xuan Lin Holy Man nodding his head and looked calm, “Right now, even if we borrow his door to the Starry Sea to combine with the Supreme Heavenly Mirror to search for the other doors, he may not agree. That’s because this will determine his precise location through the other door that he holds.”
“All these years, his rise was precipitated by the ability of Mount Yujing to remain hidden in void space.”
The Xuan Lin Holy Man’s gaze flashed with countless emotions before it returned to indifference, “But if he uses one door as a chip and entrusts it to someone, it will be a serious matter. But nothing is 100% in this world. In that way, we’ll have more room to plan.”
“After all, the foundation of our sec is strong, beyond what others can imagine.”
Cai Fengzhou said, “Lin Feng may have thought of this point too. At most, he will confer the privilege to some to enter the Starry Sea. It’s impossible that he will entrust the entire door to someone.”
“After all, he is the one with the most doors at hand. He is adept at scheming and always rides his luck. There’s no guarantee that he can’t get his hands on all the doors. Just like what you said earlier, there’s nothing 100% in this world.”
The Xuan Lin Holy Man nodded his head, “Junior Cai, you are right. No one can always be contented. For those who got close to the Celestial Sect of Wonders, the same logic applies. The same goes for Lin Feng.”
“There are countless treasures in the world. There are also those with similar value to the Starry Sea. Moreover, most deals don’t happen because of the value of a treasure, but rather because of the demand for the treasure.”
The Xuan Lin Holy Man said, “Now we know that Lin Feng is very ambitious.”
After Cai Fengzhou heard his words, he nodded his head in silence. He then looked at the Starry Sea that had regained normalcy in front of him and continued to remain in silence.
With regards to the conversation that just ensued, the Zheng Yi Holy Man listened to everything, but he did not say anything or interrupt them. He remained calm as he looked at the Starry Sea.
“Lin Feng…” The Zheng Yi Holy Man thought, “What are you going to do next?”
Lin Feng was on Mount Yujing now and looked at the passageway in front of him. Both the Avatar of Ares and Thunder Dragon Avatar returned to the mountain.
Lin Feng unleashed his mana, causing Shi Tianhao, Wang Lin and the rest to land on the ground. The Great Sun Avatar of Zhu Yi also emerged from the Crucible of the Divine Lands.
Yue Hongyan, Li Yuanfang, Luo Qingwu and a bunch of junior disciples all revealed themselves. They all bowed towards Lin Feng.
“Greetings to Master.”
“Greetings to Grandmaster.”
Lin Feng laughed as he waved his hand, “I didn’t let all of you experience the good of the Ancient Desolate Galaxy for good reason. Fortunately, the door to the Starry Sea is with me. All of you can enter at will.”
The Thunder Dragon Avatar gestured and starlight appeared in front of everyone. On closer look, it was a crystal-like entity with undefined structure.
This was the treasure that only came from the Ancient Desolate Galaxy, the Star Skull.
The Qiong Qi Grand Sage was killed by him and the Star Skull that he possessed landed in Lin Feng’s hands.
“Cultivate the Star Skull before cultivating in the Starry Sea. This will make things easier.” Lin Feng laughed. Shi Tianhao and the rest also nodded their heads, “Thanks Master.”
As compared to the Great Void Sect, the Celestial Sect of Wonders reaped bountiful rewards from the Starry Sea this time. The difference between the two sects was almost like one wealthy and one poor person. While the wealthy person was bloated to death, the poor person starved to death.
Besides the Star Skull, the door to the Starry Sea was undoubtedly the greatest reward that the Celestial Sect of Wonders reaped this time. The Crucible of the Divine Lands was yet another valuable treasure.
“Haha, this is good!” Xiao Yan surfaced. After he greeted Lin Feng, his vision landed on the Crucible of the Divine Lands. He rubbed his palms in excitement.
But who knew that when Xiao Yan got close to it, the magic treasure seemed to ostracize him.
