Chapter 260: Trying an Old Trick

Zhuge Fengling stared at Lin Feng and grinned slyly, “I may not know how strong this person is but judging from the fact that we cannot peer him through, he must be something. At least not someone that we can handle ourselves.
“But this doesn’t mean the others can’t. Even if the others can’t, it also won’t matter because once the big cows are dead, I’ll be able to swoop in and get the treasures.”
The girl dressed in green was smiling like a fox as she continued, “And, I dont really think that this guy would be able to defeat the big and stupid cows. SInce there’s an actual Demon Lord amongst them.”
The relented gold-digging mouse spoke, “Fengling, I really think that it’s a bad idea to meddle with this guy. I don’t get a good feeling from him.”
“Serious?” Zhuge Fengling was obviously affected by its words as the gold-digging mouse was her spiritual pet and also her companion. It had a gift of sniffing out danger, which was innate adaptation of the gold-digging mouse.
The gold-digging mouse lifted its paw and scratched its little head and continued, “I can’t put my finger on it either but that feeling comes and goes. But it’s weak for sure. But it’s because of this, I fear for the worst. How can the usually reliable gift of mine suddenly become so weak…”
“The more strange it is, the more I worry about the person. He can even cheat my ability to sense danger.”
The expression on Zhuge Fengling’s face kept changing but it settled on a determined look. “Regardless of what, even if the person is a harbinger of danger, I don’t think that the danger will be very significant.”
“No matter what, I have decided to act on my revenge now.” Zhuge Fengling spoke with much gusto, “I’ll place my bet on this gamble!”
As the girl and her pet disappeared into the woods, Lin Feng smiled, “It seems like the little girl has decided to try to pull an old trick again.”
He stroked his chin and thought, “Trying to swoop in to steal a trasure? Hmm… I wonder what the treasure is though…”
When it came to what plans that Zhuge Fengling had, Lin Feng could not give a damn about it. Because for him, whatever that came his way, he would simply take it head-on.
“You want to take advantage of me? You must be delusional…” Lin Feng shook his head and laughed. “You’ve no idea who is in control of who right here.”
Lin Feng released his spiritual awareness and it increasingly covered more area. Before long, a huge group of demons and creatures came into his spiritual vision.
Amongst these demons and creatures, many of them had already attained the Demonic Commander stage. From the look of things, it was probably a complete demonic clan.
What surprised Lin Feng was the ability of the huge demonic clan to mask the demonic energy. Lin Feng was only able to locate them after some intense examination on his surroundings.
If not for Zhuge Fengling’s reminder which had motivated him to closely examine his surroundings, he would not have been aware of their presence.
Upon closer examination, Lin Feng realized that it was not the demons which were good in masking their presence, but rather the existence of a faint spiritual erngy which balanced the demonic aura in the air, which had caused him to miss out on their presence.
“This spiritual energy is very dense by itself but just as how it had balanced out the demonic energy, it has become very faint and inconspicuous.” Lin Feng immediately understood as he thought, “I see… It is an intended act from the demons as they had used their sheer numbers to mask the trace of the spiritual energy to prevent others from discovering it.”
Lin Feng was just about to peer deeper into the matter before sensing a powerful and boundless demonic aura from the demonic clan, which triggered his acute sense of danger.
“That must be the Demonic Lord that the brat was mentioning…” Lin Feng thought.
It seemed that the Demonic Lord’s power was really quite impressive as his inquisitivity was detected by the Demonic Lord the moment he had tried to peer deeper into the activities.
Lin Feng decided against peering deeper and immediately, the other party was no longer able to sense his presence. The demonic energy radiated by the Demonic Lord demonstrated its confused emotion as it pondered over whether it was just an illusory mistake.
Lin Feng thought, “Hmm… How can the Demonic Lord be so sensitive to my presence? Unless it is because of that unknown treasure? Things are getting interesting…”
After a short moment, Lin Feng could start to sense some restlessness and movement amongst the demons. A cluster of demons had detached themselves from the group and were heading in the direction towards Lin Feng. And fast.
Lin Feng smiled and was nonchalant about the changes as he continued to take his stroll.
Very soon, a huge amount of demonic energy surged in the air as they neared Lin Feng. Lin Feng could sense the suppressed violent nature within the demonic energy, just like a sky of dark clouds which refused to rain.
“Dong! Dong! Dong!”
The thunderous sound of the heavy footsteps of the demons echoed from afar and like the hundreds and thousands of war drums in a battle field, they were like a chained thunderstorm.
Interested, Lin Feng stopped his movement and patiently waited for their arrival.
In a short moment, a humongous dust cloud could be seen from the mountains in afar. In fact, some of the smaller knolls were knocked down directly by their heavy movement.
The once clear weather started to be enshrouded by dark clouds as a thunderstorm seemed to be imminent.
After seeing the appearance of the demons, Lin Feng was mildly shocked and rather confused.
There were about ten humongous demons that looked like grey cows. However they had no horns and had only a single leg. Their bodies were glittering, just like the sunlight and moonlight. Their roars were like an explosive thunder.
Lin Feng stared at the beasts with much curiosity, “If I’m not wrong, aren’t these the Kui Cows? Legend has it that these creatures reside on the spiritual mountains near the East Coast… How come they are over here in the Western part of the land in the Kunlun Mountains?”
It was not that they could not survive out of water but rather why would they leave their comfort zone?
“Unless it is because of the treasure?” Now Lin Feng was increasingly interested in the treasure. But it seemed that the Demonic Commanders in front of him were not to willing to welcome him.
The strongest Demonic Commander among the Kui Cows was a good two meters tall as it peered down at Lin Feng before speaking in human tongue, “So you are the one backing the girl?”
Even though it was speaking the human tongue, its voice was still like a rumbling thunder.
Lin Feng frowned and replied, “I have no relationship with that girl you are speaking about.”
He paused before looking at the Kui Cows in front of him and continued, “However, call it coincidence, but it happens that we do share a common objective.”
“What is the treasure that you all are trying to mask with your demonic energy?”
Hearing Lin Feng’s question, the Demonic Commander exploded into a rage, “So you are the same type!”
Its rage resulted in the emergence of many rumbling thunder clouds on its body, which merged and fused with the sun and moon light, resulting in a bright spark which went straight for Lin Feng.
Just before it came into contact with Lin Feng, a cheerful voice could be heard shouting, “Oooh! A Kui cow!”
An adorable and fair little girl appeared in front of Lin Feng and stared at the Kui cow, emitting a green light from both of her eyes. As she opened her little mouth, a powerful suction force engulfed the demonic spark which the Demonic Commander had released, and the spark went straight into her mouth.
The Kui Cow Demonic Commander trembled as it exclaimed, “A pure-blood Taotie?”
Yes, it was none other than the little Taotie, Tun Tun. She giggled, “What are you waiting for? This creature is very precious and delicious.”
The Kui Cow Demonic Commander’s hair stood up as a strong sense of danger struck it. Just before it could react to anything, a young male voice could be heard, “I’m surprised at how a single leg can support such a humongous body. And quite sturdy as well.”
Xiao Budian patted on the single leg of the Demonic Commander while Tun Tun laughed, “The taste of the meat on this leg is the best!”
“How dare you!” The Demonic Commander screamed in anger as the demonic spark on its body began to glitter again. For some strange reason, it resonated with the thunderstorm in the sky and a scary amount of energy began to build up.
The Kui cows behind it also began to let out a loud roar, as they initiated the demonic energy within themselves and began to communicate with the thunderstorm in the sky.
Countless flash of lightnings could be seen within the thunderstorm as their original disjointed form began to synchronize with one another. Before long, they became one and it lit up the entire dark sky till it was as bright as the day.
Xiao Budian looked up at the sky and giggled, “Surrender yourself and be my food. Any form of resistance will be fultile.”
He waved his hands and the Green Bronze Crucible of Emptiness, as well as the Hammer of the Yellow Heaven Bell appeared in his hands. With his left hand on the crucible and his right hand holding the hammer, Xiao Budian gave the crucible a light hammer.
Immediately, an unbelievable loud soud was produced and instantly, the thunder in the sky was overwhelmed by it.
Solid waves of golden ripples could be seen expanding to the horizon and all thunderflashes which were in the sky were instantly disintegrated. Even the oppressive dark thunder clouds were also destroyed by the sound waves.
The sky soon regained its original azure color as though it had just been washed clean of all dirt.
And this group of Kui cows were knocked aback by the golden sound waves as color was drained from their faces. Immediately, they knew that they would not be able to fight against Xiao Budian and quickly turned towards their back, ready to flee.
But how was it possible that Xiao Budian and Tun Tun would let their food run away?
With a combined effort, both of them subdued all the Kui cows and any form of resistance was dealt with swiftly and decisively.
In the distant forest, Zhuge Fengling and the gold-digging mouse both had their jaws dropped at the sight of this. Zhuge Fengling stammered and said, “That…that was a good ten Demonic Commander level Kui cows right? How could they be captured with such ease?”
The gold-digging mouse nodded its head fervently, “That’s right. It’s totally insane. Fengling, I think it’s better if we leave.”
Zhuge Fengling continued to look at Lin Feng, unresigned as she spoke, “How could his luck be so good? The cows were just about to trample him to his death then two little brats had to come in to save him.”
Lin Feng went to the Kui Cow Demonic Commander and grinned, “Are you willing to answer my question now?”
The Demonic Commander grunted in displeasure, “If not for the sudden appearance of these two little brats, I would have trampled you flat!”
“Oh really?” Lin Feng grinned and looked at Xiao Budian, “So if you hadn’t come, I would have been trampled by him?”
Xiao Budian laughed playfully before jumping onto the head of the Kui Cow Demonic Commander, with the tip of its feet jutting at its skull. “Open you big cow eyes and look carefully. He is my master. Who are you trying to trample?”
“Let me ask you one last time. Who are you trying to trample?”
