Chapter 232: Surrounding and catching the small Taotie
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Yang Qing’s Grand Moon Primordial Water landed into the river path that Wang Lin had reformed from the Road to River Styx, forming a jade-green long river.
The power concepts of Water and Earth blended perfectly to form a brand-new fusion.
Whatever that happened in the past could never be retrieved anymore, leaving immeasurable sorrow.
The Grand Moon Unholy Long River was a new spell formed!
Wang Lin could also move the River Styx Primordial Water within the Pearl of Styx to complete a similar spell, but he was willing to support Yang Qing now, focusing on harnessing the power of the Road to River Styx. Without being distracted, the power of the Road to River Styx was unleashed to its greatest potential.
And Yang Qing did not let Wang Lin down, as he guided his own Grand Moon Primordial Water.
Normally, Yang Qing would consistently approach Wang Lin for help regarding the mantras and Wang Lin was never selfish, always thoroughly guiding him. Through this process, a spell like the Grand Moon Unholy Long River was created as the 9-pointer and 10-pointer Intelligence individuals congregated together.
Although this was the first time that they were practically applying their skills in battle, their chemistry while fighting against the enemy was perfect.
The Grand Moon Unholy Long River was like the reverse of the Vast Heaven River. It surged vigorously towards Tuntun.
As Tuntun saw this, her small face was instantly wrinkled into the shape of a bun. “You obviously have so much, but you lied to me that you did not have any more just now. You are such a dishonest person.”
She was not a little scared and directly opened her big mouth. The Gifted Engulfing Theurgy was exhibited and it engulfed the Grand Moon Unholy Long River.
Yang Qing was a little frantic when he witnessed this scene. Wang Lin stole a glance at him, “Remain composed and develop some guts.”
“Yes.” Yang Qing breathed in deeply and calmed his nerves. He managed to get his state of mind together to control the spell.
The Grand Moon Unholy Long River did a U-turn in Tuntun’s mouth and flew out of it.
Tuntun was stunned and shouted, “Do not run!” The suction power in her mouth became stronger. But this time around, Yang Qing steadied his mind and meticulously controlled the Grand Moon Unholy Long River, causing it to spin nonstop. It contended with the Gifted Engulfing Theurgy of Tuntun.
Wang Lin slightly nodded his head and stared at Tuntun’s gaze. In the silence, there was. As his mind wavered, a pearl emitting a light golden hue suddenly floated in mid-space. It was the Pearl of Styx that Wang Lin always carried around with him.
After Wang Lin established his foundation, he could finally use some of the powers of this pearl.
Under the control of Wang Lin, the Pearl of Styx suddenly released the sound of flowing water.
Dark yellow River Styx Primordial Water began to surge out of it.
As Tuntun saw the River Styx Primordial Water, her face revealed a disgusted expression. “The River Styx Primordial Water tastes disgusting. Annoying.”
She did not want to engulf the River Styx Primordial Water, thus when she saw the light yellow Primordial Water approaching it, she released the Grand Sun Primordial Fire to resist the Grand Moon Primordial Water.
When the shining Grand Sun Primordial Fire went up against the dim River Styx Primordial Water, there was an intense battle between both parties.
Tuntun’s cultivation was of a higher level than Wang Lin, but Wang Lin’s River Styx Primordial Water had the backing of the Pearl of Styx. Both parties were unable to gain an edge over the other.
“This pearl is good stuff, how does it taste like?”
As she said it, Tuntun opened h4 small mouth and a strong suction power rushed towards the Pearl of Styx.
Wang Lin’s face changed color and he tried to recover the Pearl of Styx. But he realized that the Pearl of Styx had been stuck in place by Tuntun’s Gifted Engulfing Theurgy and he was unable to recover it back.
“Let go of it!” Wang Lin’s face turned black. He pointed his Finger of Destruction at Tuntun but was unable to stop Tuntun from releasing his Gifted Engulfing Theurgy. The destructive powers of the Finger of Destruction were quickly engulfed by Tuntun.
Just as Wang Lin was frantic, a bright light flashed in space. A strong force of coercion fell on Tuntun’s head, causing her to feel pressured.
Two flaming wings – one golden and one blue – converged, signaling Xiao Yan’s arrival at the scene. Staring at Tuntun, he laughed creepily, “Trying to swallow the treasure of my junior. What about my thing, do you want it?”
As Xiao Yan whistled, the two wings that were made of the Grand Sun Primordial Fire and the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire were converted into two sides of huge flames, surrounding Tuntun.
Xiao Yan, who had already formed the golden elixir, brought upon a much larger pressure to Tuntun than both Wang Lin and Yang Qing, who were in the Foundation Establishment Stage.
Facing him, Tuntun had to abandon the delicacy that she was about to enjoy and released the Pearl of Styx to retaliate against the two Primordial Fires.
The small Taotie used the Grand Sun Primordial Fire against itself and managed to resist Xiao Yan’s Grand Sun Primordial Fire. It then used the Gifted Engulfing Theurgy to aim at the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire.
After engulfing some of the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire, Tuntun instantly shouted, “So hot, the taste is too strong.”
That tone was not of fear, but she was like a tourist trying to swallow hot food and burnt her tongue. But she still ate until she was satisfied.
Xiao Yan wrinkled his brows, “I shall let you eat!”
As he said that, he retrieved the Nefarious Almighty Sword. But his mind wavered and he developed a new idea. “Maybe I can try it.”
As he changed his mind, Xiao Yan’s two Primordial Fires underwent a change. They were no longer separated clearly.
The newly changed Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire and the Grand Sun Primordial Fire were combined at their tips above Xiao Yan’s forehead.
The combination of both Primordial Fires was not smooth. Both Primordial Fires were challenging for the title of the best spiritual fire on earth. They were only able to maintain a peaceful existence together due to Xiao Yan’s intentional control.
However, Xiao Yan’s desire to combine them together led to an intense collision, causing a chaotic and violent mana oscillation, which radiated in all directions continuously.
Even the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree at the top of Mount Yujing was affected, causing the leaves to shake slightly, due to this aura of destructive power.
Xiao Yan’s face revealed a laughing intent and within it was a hint of craze. Both of his eyes were initially black, but at this moment, one of his eyes was shining with a golden color and an evil purplish-blue color appeared in the other eye.
Both Wang Lin and Yang Qing subconsciously retreated, trying to keep their distance from Xiao Yan.
Tuntun swallowed her saliva and her body also inched backward slowly.
As the surrounding audience watched fearfully, Xiao Yan’s Primordial Fire managed to gradually combine with greater stability.
But it was also due to this stability that revealed a more frightening aura.
Xiao Yan’s eyes emitted a weird light. His three-year battle with Murong Yanran was imminent, which led his mind to enter a state of excitement and stress. He was dying to do something to vent his feelings.
Right now, the frightening power unleashed by the combination of the two Primordial Fires made him feel better.
As Lin Feng saw this scene, he slightly nodded his head. “It cannot be wrong anymore. Being the King of Fires is the destiny of Xiao Yan.”
Although Xiao Yan’s experiment was not fully successful, Lin Feng could tell with his level of cultivation and foresight that if Xiao Yan’s abhijna was fully completed and be controlled naturally, a normal cultivator in the early stage of the Nascent Soul Stage would not be able to stop him.
Crossing an entire realm to kill an enemy could be considered to be a sign of dominance.
But Lin Feng would not let Xiao Yan do this on Mount Yujing. The current Xiao Yan still could not perfectly control the combination of the two Primordial fires. If there was something not dealt with carefully, this could backfire on Xiao Yan himself.
“Xiao Yan, your spell still has room for improvement. Do not unleash it on Mount Yujing and scare it.”
Lin Feng used his mana to convey the message to Xiao Yan. Upon hearing Lin Feng’s voice, Xiao Yan’s mind became clearer and he calmed himself down.
But on the surface, Xiao Yan continued to grin suspiciously at Tuntun, “Will you be interested in eating this thing?”
Tuntun looked at the Primordial Fires that were gradually combining on top of Xiao Yan’s head and licked her tongue as if she made a big decision. She shook her head, “Forget it, this thing will give me a stomachache.”
“But wait for me to form a demon soul and promote to a demonic lord. When I reach that stage, I will definitely try it!” Tuntun made a funny face towards Xiao Yan before turning around and running away without a trace.
With Xiao Yan around, Wang Lin’s Pearl of Styx and Yang Qing’s Grand Moon Primordial Water were forsaken by Tuntun.
Lin Feng looked at the situation with interest, before he received a call by Zhu Yi, “Master, this Taotie is very strong. If all of us band together, we can kill her. But if we want to catch her alive, it will be difficult.”
“If we want to catch her alive, it is actually not that difficult. You must change your perspective in whatever problems you want to solve.” Lin Feng laughed while saying, “Let me tell you, everything has its own logic behind it.”
“Think about how the Zhongshan Forest hunters were able to catch wild animals. Besides using arrows, swords, and spears to kill, what other methods did they use?”
After a few moments of silence, Zhu Yi replied with a hint of laughing intent in his voice, “I understand now.”
Lin Feng lived in Mount Yujing and everything that happened at the mountain was under his control. He soon saw Zhu Yi returning to the Heavenly Golden Pavilion Elixir Room, picking a gourd amongst many that were hanging on the wall.
Zhu Yi poured out a pill from the gourd and pointed his finger at it. One black and one white mana were injected into it before Zhu Yi returned the pill into the gourd. Afterward, he dumped the gourd on the floor and left.
Tuntun appeared after a while. The little fellow landed from space and stared at the gourd for a few moments, before mumbling to herself, “It seems like this is an obvious trap and bait.”
Lin Feng and Zhu Yi laughed as they spied on Tuntun.
Not worried that you suspect there was a trap, just worried that you did not know where the trap was.
Knowing a Taotie’s natural behavior, they could not resist themselves from eating even if they knew it was a trap. On one hand, this was due to their greedy personality. On the other hand, they were confident of their engulfing abilities.
As expected, Tuntun smirked and directly engulfed the entire gourd containing the pill.
Zhu Yi laughed while shaking his head. He used his hands to conjure up a spell. As the mana was activated, Tuntun felt that something was not right.
Suddenly, a boundary similar to a sacrificial altar that was formed using both light and darkness appeared in its stomach.
Great Boundaries of the Celestial Light and Darkness Mandala!
Following Zhu Yi’s state of mind, the light and darkness boundary momentarily had the tendency to collapsed.
“I have been tricked again.” Tuntun lamented. This method that Zhu Yi used to deal with it was the same as the Heaven-Revolving Purple Clouds that Lin Feng used to form the Celestial Small Worlds in its stomach, following the tactics of the Destruction of Heaven and Earth.
As Lin Feng saw this scene, he shook his head and laughed uncontrollably, “Smart people do not trip over the same stone twice. But you as an eating monster can only remember to eat and not fight. Not sure whether to say you are stupid or just greedy.”
Lin Feng was in the process of thinking, but Zhu Yi was already ready to complete the trapping process. Suddenly, a shadow flashed past and was one step ahead in capturing the immobile Tuntun.
It was Xiao Budian.
But he did not greet Zhu Yi and directly snatched Tuntun away, before running away without any trace.
Lin Feng looked at Xiao Budian curiously and realized that he did not plan to hand Tuntun over. Instead, he decided to kidnap Tuntun and put her away at an isolated cave in the mountains.
