Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
After hearing Lin Feng’s words, Xiao Yan was stunned, “Eh?!”
After that, he revealed a look of joy on his face and coughed, “Erm, Master, this is too sudden. See, I’m not that prepared yet…”
Shi Tianhao pursed his lips, “Is it too fast, Eldest Senior? But I see you smiling so widely.”
Luo Qingwu laughed too, “Senior Xiao Yan, stop acting coy. Everyone knows that you look forward to this.”
Xiao Yan waved his hand at them, “Go away, one bachelor and one spinster. What do the both of you know?”
Shi Tianhao and Luo Qingwu rolled their eyes at him.
Xiao Yan rubbed his hands and his usual toughness disappeared. He looked at Lin Feng foolishly and laughed, “Master, you…”
“Both you and Zhener are compatible with each other. This should happen sooner or later anyway.” Lin Feng smiled, “Now that the both of you have formed the Immortal Soul and have become a Daoist couple, it will be a very joyous occasion.”
“After obtaining approval from your grandfather, go to the Ancient Longevity World and propose marriage.”
Lin Feng patted him on his shoulder, “While I my actual body may not be free to go, I will still present the betrothal gifts on your behalf. At least one of my avatar will come”
Although he joked in the past that he would offer the Ancient Royal Sword as a betrothal gift, Lin Feng was actually not so miserly when it came to proposing marriage for Xiao Yan.
As his Eldest Disciple, it was necessary for Xiao Yan to undergo the appropriate procedures if he wanted to propose marriage.
It might sound very romantic to be engaged, but it reflected more of frustration instead.
“If there’s no other matter that crops up, we shall act when Miss Zhener finishes her cultivation.”
He smiled as he poked Xiao Yan, “Don’t be too elated. This marriage is not yet confirmed.”
Xiao Yan laughed cheekily, “Master, if you’re going to be there personally, it will be a success. Everything will be smooth.”
Lin Feng laughed and shook his head, “You…”
He looked at Xiao Yan and laughed, “You can’t just marry on the spot when we go this time. At most, the date will be set. To marry her for real, you must wait some time.”
Xiao Yan nodded his head, “Master, I understand.” Zhu Yi, Wang Lin, Shi Tianhao and seemed to be enlightened too at this point.
For them to marry, the Gu Family in the Ancient Longevity World had to make the final decision.
But everyone remained normal and Zhu Yi smiled, “I believe Eldest Senior and Miss Zhener will be able to marry each other eventually.”
Everyone nodded their heads and Xiao Yan smiled widely, “I hope your words will be fulfilled, Second Junior.”
His smile became more and more gentle and he said softly, “Zhener mentioned before that we shall discuss what happened in the past when we meet again.”
Lin Feng and the rest nodded their heads. The ‘what happened in the past’ referred to the fact that Xiao Zhener spent her childhood in the Xiao Family back in Wuzhou County.
This matter was related to some secrets of the plans of the Emperor of the Ancients. Although Xiao Zhener did contact Xiao Yan frequently over these few years and they chatted about many things, they rarely mentioned about this matter.
At times, she would like to explain to Xiao Yan, but she would be stopped. After all, Xiao Yan did not want to put Xiao Zhener in a spot by interfering in the internal secrets of the Gu Family.
Over these years, Xiao Yan remained tough and courageous. In terms of interpersonal relationships, he was also much more mature, especially towards those who were closer to him. He would step in the shoes of the other party and try not to put the other party in a difficult spot.
Xiao Zhener understood his intentions too. And now that she suggested that they discussed about the past, it meant that the matter was no longer an issue over at the Gu Family.
This was actually positive news. This meant that the Gu Family was more accepting of Xiao Yan now and they were friendlier towards the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
Lin Feng nodded his head and laughed, “The both of you can finally reunite when you go over to the Ancient Longevity World this time.”
Xiao Yan laughed as he sighed, “That’s right, we can finally reunite.”
Lin Feng said, “Don’t get too busy with missing her. I have something for all of you now.”
Everyone focused their minds at this point. As Lin Feng moved his hands, six streaks of purple clouds appeared. Besides Zhu Yi’s actual body which was not around, the rest of the others were engulfed by the purple clouds. Lin Feng used his mana to sense the condition of all of them.
After a brief moment, Lin Feng retracted the purple clouds and nodded his head in satisfaction, “Not bad, very good.”
He looked at Yue Hongyan first and said, “Hongyan, you are the one who has benefited the most as we entered the Ancient Desolate Galaxy this time. Right now, you have broken through the past bottleneck. Ascending to the Advanced Nascent Soul Stage. And forming your Cosmic Form will be a matter of time.”
Yue Hongyan clasped her palm and fist towards him, replying, “I will cultivate well and form the Cosmic Form soon.”
Lin Feng pointed at her and replied, “Don’t be too anxious too. Cultivate the Star Skull first before trying to advance. This will be more beneficial to your future cultivation.”
Yue Hongyan acknowledged by nodding her head, before Lin Feng encouraged Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu to cultivate the Star Skull. The both of them listened to his advice too.
After that, he turned to Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao, “For the four of you, it’s just about absorbing the powers of the luminaries within. It shouldn’t be too hard.”
“Although Zhu Yi’s actual body is not here, the Great Sun Avatar will also benefit much by absorbing the powers of the luminaries within the Star Skull. Just go ahead with it. When your actual body returns, there will still be some remnants for it.”
“For Wang Lin’s Heaven-Carrying Great Saintly Satanic Avatar, the same logic applies.”
Zhu Yi and Wang Lin bowed, “Thank you Master.”
Following that, Lin Feng posed questions for the four of them who had already formed the Immortal Soul. He wanted to test their understanding of the collection of the sect.
After he finished his questioning, Lin Feng was still very pleased. The four of them had basically understood the entire Four Appearances Heaven-Cleaving Script and Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams. They even developed their own understandings of the way of the Heavens and Earth and the great Dao.
While they might not be as advanced as Lin Feng, they were continually improving themselves.
For mantras like the Burning Heavens Mantra, Golden Chapters of the Yansheng Eight Trigrams, Heavenly Extreme Path Sutra and the Understanding of the Tempest, they were birthed from the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams before the four of them included their own understandings of the Four Appearances Heaven Cleaving Script within.
The mantras of the Celestial Sect of Wonders were perfected slowly and became part of a system.
In the future, as Xiao Yan and the rest rose in their cultivation, their understanding of the way of the Heavens and Earth would be deeper too. The Burning Heavens Mantra and the other mantras would be improved continually too.
Yue Hongyan, Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu were the same. As they improved, especially if they formed the Immortal Soul, the True Art of the Void, Eight Trigrams Xuanshu Dao Mantra and Celestial Sword Manual would be improved too.
His disciples did not waste their time all these years, which left Lin Feng comforted. He tapped with his finger lightly and four light spots flew out. They landed in front of Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao before entering their brows.
The eyes of Xiao Yan and the rest lit up, “Two Elements Origins-Returning Scripture?”
Lin Feng smiled as he nodded his head, “This is a foundation of the sect. The third chapter of the Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtues, the Two Elements Chapter.”
“Since all of your foundations are rather stable now, the time is ripe. I will pass this to all of you now.”
Xiao Yan and the rest bowed respectfully, “We thank Master for passing down the manual to us.”
Lin Feng waved them off and laughed, “There’s no need to be so grateful. All of you have fulfilled your talents, which I am very comforted by.”
Radiances surfaced on his fingertips and he continued saying, “I believe all of you can also feel that as you improve, your cultivation improves and your understanding of the Heavens and Earth also improves. My Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtues simplifies things, but cultivating the same way the whole time will not be useful to all of you in the future.”
Yue Hongyan and the other two looked at one another before shaking their heads. Whereas after Xiao Yan and the others were silent for a while, they nodded their heads.
Lin Feng smiled and said, “As I said before, I hope to see all of you carve out your own paths and live life with meaning.”
“As I guide all of you into the sect, I leave your cultivations to yourselves. As I pass down mantras to all of you, I am only offering a direction. Eventually, everything has to be completed on your own.”
The bunch of disciples bowed towards him, “We will remember Master’s teachings and cultivate hard to bring glory to the sect.”
Lin Feng laughed, “It’s fine if all of you can keep it in your hearts. Go and cultivate then.”
After he paused for a moment, he continued saying, “After this trip to the Ancient Desolate Galaxy, the situation in the Grand Celestial World has changed again. We will also need to plan well. Things are going to get serious from now on.”
Xiao Yan and the others smiled. They were not fearful. “We understand.”
Lin Feng nodded his head in satisfaction, “Okay, all of you can return. Yuanfang1, I need you to stay though.”
Everyone laughed as they looked at Li Yuanfang. He did not move though, “Master, it’s not Yuanfang1, but Yuanfang4.”
Lin Feng nodded his head. And as he pointed his finger, a black spot came before Li Yuanfang.
Li Yuanfang’s eyes brightened and flashed with a bright radiance, “Master, this…is the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation?”
Lin Feng nodded his head, “This is indeed the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation. But this formation has been crushed by the Qiong Qi and the formation map has also been damaged by the downburst to the Starry Sea. To restore it, time and effort are needed.”
Li Yuanfang replied, “I will do my best.”
“Relax, I’m not putting any pressure on you. I am passing this to you to help you complete the Heluo Heavenly Gate Formation.” Lin Feng said, “I will mend the formation map along with you. And if you want to unleash the powers of this formation, the treasures needed are very rare. We have a lot of things to prepare.”
Li Yuanfang nodded his head in acknowledgement and Lin Feng continued asking, “How’s your understanding of the Heavenly Fire God-Slaughtering Formation coming along?”
