Chapter 106: The Two Beauties
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_
By the edge of Zhou Kingdom’s eastern coast, close to the territorial seas.
It was already in the evening; the sun’s dying rays cast the skyline in a deep shade of red. Above the sparkling sea, a flock of tired seagulls was heading home. Below the fresh sea breeze, blue waves crashed relentlessly against the horizon. In the distant sea, a ray of white light suddenly began drifting between the sea and sky.
Above the sea, under the moonlight.
A peerless beauty dressed in green sat cross-legged within the white light; with her eyes closed, she exuded tranquility. She opened her eyes and stood up in the white light above the ocean waves. She gazed into the horizon and bowed down.
“Disciple Mingyue, pay respects to Master.”
The clouds in the distance started to rumble and morph into a person’s silhouette. It became clear that it was a woman, her face mysterious with the charms of a more mature woman yet retaining the soft, youthful features of a girl. By then the clouds drew a face that occupied half of the entire sky, looking down upon Mingyue. “How are your wounds?”, the face in the sky asked.
Mingyue smiled, “Master, thank you for helping me regain my physical form. My spirit and physical body are in harmony, with no cracks or barriers, but if I want to restore my cultivation level to what it was before, I need to spend more time and effort.”
The woman in the sky smiled, nodded her head and said, “This is for the best; I can finally put my mind at ease.”
The woman said calmly “Mingyue, although you met with a disaster, it might be a blessing in disguise. The Sect has chosen a new All-Under-Heavens Strider. Your return to the Sect has to be put on hold until an opportunity arise.”
Yan Mingyue nodded to show that she understood.
If she insisted on returning to the Void Temple, she could go back and be an ordinary disciple at any time but if she had any other thoughts she had to wait for a better opportunity.
Yan Mingyue smiled, “Disciple feels that the time for my return is arriving soon”.
The woman in the sky smiled, “The ‘time’ that you mentioned – is it related to the wandering cultivator Taoist Lin?”
Yan Mingyue smiled and nodded, “He might be able to bring some surprises.”
“Then Your Master will wait and see”, the woman replied. “Regarding the stuff you spoke to me last time, have you made your decision yet?”
Yan Mingyue quietly said:” Yes, your disciple have decided to choose the Zhou Dynasty. Since both the emperor and his subject, Liang Pan and Zhu HongWu, complement one another well, they hold the power to stop other officials. It should be the dynasty with the highest chance of succeeding.”
The clouds slowly dissipated, the woman’s face dissolving into the sky.
The sky darkened as the sun set completely.
Yan Mingyue looked up towards the dark night sky with numerous flashing bright stars, with a dazed look on her face.
Moments later, she recovered and raised her hand towards the sky and drew a spell. The spell dove into the sea and a second later a person rose from the sea.
It was a water human, the whole body composed of water, transparent and glistening.
Yan Mingyue smiled, “Go and spread the news, let the news spread to the ears of my successor, the new All-Under-Heavens Strider.”
“Yes,” the water human hesitated for a second and asked, ” If your Junior hears that the lost Stone Flute is in the hands of that Taoist Lin, he will definitely not let it go. Can that Taoist Lin pose a threat to your Junior?”
Yan Mingyue did not feel not feel upset by the question but instead smiled, “Let him test the limits of my junior”.
The water human bowed down in acknowledgment and sank into the sea.
Yan Mingyue looked up into the sky in a daze again.
“Is it because I am too sensitive? Why do I feel that you will become an enemy of my Void Temple in the future?”
“Why do I feel that the person who will be taken advantage of will be my Junior? Hehe, this person is weird, he gives others an inexplicable confidence without any reason.”, she thought. Yan Mingyue gave a slight smile, “Maybe it is my Junior who will test your limits.”
In the Heaven Primal world, the Human world belonging to the Human race was called the Divine Lands.
In comparison, the Demon world belonging to the Demon race was called the Heaven Desolate Vast Continent.
In the far east of the Heaven Desolate Vast Continent, among the middle of millions of mountain range extending forever into the distance, in a small secluded small valley, a tall tree reached the sky with big leaves and branches covering the sky, the canopy covering a large area of space.
The tree branches from the big tree were as white as jade almost to the point of being transparent; the leaves were all a demonic blue color. They gave off a gleaming cold glow, revealing a desolate aura, but it was without a doubt full of vitality.
Even if you broke off a small branch, and planted it in the most barren land, it could immediately grow into a full-size tree.
But it had a strange barren aura, around the tree, a radius of several hundred feet. There was not a single living grass in its immediate vicinity.
The trunk of the tree suddenly gave off a glow, a barefooted girl dressed in white walked out from the trunk, with an appearance of a tender and beautiful smile which exuded a charismatic charm.
“Long Ye pays respects to Master.”
The air in front of her began to ripple like water as a woman slowly walked out. Her body from head to toe looked as though it was shrouded in fog, which made people unable to see her looks clearly.
She is Long Ye’s Master, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage.
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage spoke slowly in a hoarse voice, “If it weren’t for the leaves of the Celestial Jade Tree which have the same origins as you, you wouldn’t be able to regain your physical form so soon.
Long Ye smiled: “I would have to thank that weird human.”
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage asked: “You gave the stone flute from the Great Void Sect to him?”
Long Ye smiled like a little girl and said:” Not only that, I also gave the news to Yan Mingyue.”
“You did well,” the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage voice sounded happy. “But why did you also tell him about the location of the cave dwelling?”
Long Ye’s eyes flashed a demonic glow, “I have a feeling this feeling that this person is not simple, if he is able to succeed, he will be able to pressurize both the Great Void Sect and the Human Race.
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage said in an indifferent voice: “So confident”?
“It’s just a feeling,” Long Ye smiled. ” Even if I’m wrong there’s no loss, right? That cave dwelling is not within our reach and also…”
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage interjected. “and also that old Golden Crow’s descendant is in the vicinity of the cave dwelling.”
Long Ye smiled and hugged her Master’s arm, “Didn’t the Golden Crow Grand Sage gave you a lot of problems in the recent years? As your beloved disciple, I must give him something to do, to exercise his old bones.”
Both Master and Disciple looked at each other and laughed.
Lin Feng brought Xiao Budian back to the place where Xiao Yan and the others were. Zhu Yi had already come out of cultivation and Lin Feng had taken notice that the mana in his body was flowing freely in abundance. It seemed that he had successfully broken through the bottleneck and reached the 12th stage of Qi Disciple.
Lin Feng asked his four disciples to gather in front of him smiled: “You guys might feel weird as to why we don’t have our own Tao technique. The Tao Techniques I passed down to you guys ares all different. There are Buddhist techniques and even precious Tao technique that you happen to get by chance. So why do we only use other people’s Tao Techniques?”
The four little guys looked at each other as XiaoYan scratched his head, “Sometimes when there’s nothing to do I will occasionally think about it, but never to the point of doubting you. I believe that Master has your own reasons.
Zhu Yi spoke with a profound look, “Although the Tao Techniques we learned are different and seems to be mixed, but Master you take our abilities into consideration, I presume that the Tao Techniques that you teach us are the most suitable for our own progression. The fact is that our cultivation level has improved by leap and bounds.
Wang Lin shook his head, “Whatever Master teaches me, I will learn.”
Xiao Budian said: “Master, the Tao Technique you pass us are really powerful, But of course if you have ever more powerful Dao Techniques, please don’t forget about me”
Lin Feng smiled and glared at him in a joking manner: “You are a crafty lad.”
He looked at his four disciples as he stopped smiling and spoke seriously: “My Tao technique requires you all to be in the Foundation Establishment as the basis, hence, during the Qi Disciple phrase whatever Tao Techniques you learn are not important, because when you reach Foundation Establishment by cultivating our Sect’s Tao Technique, your current mana will naturally change into my Unique Tao mana.
Lin Feng looked at the four of them indifferently, “Next, I will pass down to you the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams, which is what I am currently cultivating. You guys have to work hard in the future there are even better Tao techniques waiting for you.”
