“If we continue to follow this method of cutting the rock, by cutting it into half at the center, we will still need two cuts.”
Lin Feng smiled slightly. After cutting it twice, he could already make the accurate judgment.
As the black volcanic rock was continuously being cut and its size was continuously shrinking, therefore, its ability to devour the supernatural awareness of a cultivator would diminish continuously.
A cultivator with a stronger supernatural awareness would be able to see through the barrier of the black volcanic rock and find out the true image of the magic treasure within it.
Although Lin Feng’s Steel Tree Avatar had its own limits, the strength and spirituality of his soul was the same as his main body. That was why he could tell that the rock contained the tooth of some beastly creature.
But this tooth was not in the center of the rock. Rather, it was at the edge of the rock. If the method of cutting the rock through the center was followed, at least two cuts would be needed to encounter the rock.
Lin Feng looked at Zhu Yi’s expression and knew that he had already found out what was in the rock.
Among Lin Feng’s disciples in the Foundation Establishment Stage, Wang Lin had the most powerful soul. Although he was only in the beginner stage, he was above Yue Hongyan and Yang Qing in terms of the strength and spirituality of his soul.
Whereas within the Aurous Core Stage disciples, Zhu Yi had the most powerful soul. It was even crossing the limits of an Aurous Core Stage cultivator.
Although he could figure out the existence of the tooth, he could not determine its position. That was why Zhu Yi was patiently waiting.
But if he missed out on the tooth, then he could only blame it on destiny.
What made Lin Feng uneasy was that the next person who wanted to cut the rock did not plan to cut it from the center. Rather, he was hesitating between cutting either end of the rock.
If he chose the side where the tooth was, then this cut would reveal it.
But Lin Feng was relieved when the guy chose the other side and did not managed to cut out the tooth.
At this point, Zhu Yi could figure out the exact position of the tooth. He immediately whipped out five pieces of the Thunderous Echo Elixir and drew his sword to cut the rock.
Just as Zhu Yi made a move, three people rushed out from the crowd and threw some treasures towards the Northern Tribe man. After that, they all fought to reach the rock first.
Lin Feng saw this and immediately knew that they were observing Zhu Yi. When Zhu Yi made a move, they took the opportunity to strike.
These three cultivators used Zhu Yi’s judgment as a reference to strike.
“The three of you really look up to my disciple.” Lin Feng shook his head while laughing, “But I must say, that was brilliant!”
But the problem was that it was futile!
Zhu Yi did not even blink his eyes as the three men rushed out. The Light and Darkness Aurous Core in his body started to vibrate vigorously. The aura of good and evil surged out as he swept his hand across.
The power of good was converted into a bright radiance while the power of evil was converted into a deep and dark aura.
They formed a huge boundary and its shape looked like, but at the same time did not look like, a Mandala Flower.
Zhu Yi’s Great Boundaries of the Celestial Light and Darkness Mandala!
The expressions of the three men changed. They immediately stopped in their tracks and performed their own mantras to breach the boundaries.
The Great Boundaries of the Celestial Light and Darkness Mandala trapped the mana of the three men. After that, it suddenly shrank and collapsed towards the middle, as if it was a small-scale Destruction of Heaven and Earth. The mantras of the three men were destroyed totally.
Everyone around were entirely shocked as they looked at Zhu Yi. The ferocity of his mantra was beyond what everyone had expected.
“No wonder he could overcome a Nascent Soul Stage Elder!” Everyone thought of this instantaneously, “It seems like the Aurous Core Stage disciple of the Celestial Sect of Wonders is even more ferocious than the Foundation Establishment Stage disciples!”
The three men were in shock, but they dared not make any wrong move. They only stared as Zhu Yi waved his sword to slice open the rock, revealing the tooth.
The tooth was very sharp and a dark aura emanated from it. It did not look auspicious and left everyone crept out.
The tooth was black and flashed with a dark light. It was filled with a mysterious and strange power concept.
Zhu Yi grabbed the tooth and looked at the Northern Tribe man. The man was also looking at the tooth of his hand. He said, “Since you have cut out this treasure, you shall keep it.”
Zhu Yi nodded his head and looked at everyone. Everyone that was staring at Zhu Yi looked unfriendly, especially those who paid for cutting the rock but ended up with nothing.
Gu Lei laughed at one corner, “Seems like this treasure is fated to belong to you, Comrade Zhu. I congratulate you for this reward.”
As he stood with Zhu Yi, their statures were greatly boosted. No one wanted to offend the Celestial Sect of Wonders and Purple Clouds Sect.
Although a group of people were indignant about it, they could not do anything. Zhu Yi looked at the three men who tried to cut the rock and said calmly, “Are the three of you cultivators of the Great Qin Empire?”
One of the men, who was a tall and lean youth, turned his head and said fiercely, “What, do you want to continue to attack us? Do it if you want to. I will really like to see how good you are.”
He knew that since he was in the Hidden Dragon Gorge, Zhu Yi could not kill him anyway. That was why he was not fearful.
Zhu Yi did not even look at the youth, but turned to his two companions, saying, “Tell Princess Xingyun to command her people instead.”
After saying it, Zhu Yi waved his hand and the Great Boundaries of the Celestial Light and Darkness Mandala appeared again, trapping the youth.
The tall and lean youth shouted furiously and a golden white light dragon appeared around him. He had cultivated a mantra of the Imperial Script of the White Dragon from the Secret Manual of the Five Imperial True Dragons.
He wanted to use the golden white light dragon to break Zhu Yi’s Great Boundaries of the Celestial Light and Darkness Mandala, but he ended up hurt instead.
Inside the boundaries, countless bright and dark rays intersected and created an independent small world.
No matter how much the golden white light dragon tried, it could not release itself from the trap.
But the boundaries did not collapse like before and only trapped the youth within it.
The youth was furious. Both he and Shi Shaogan were of the royal blood. Although he was not from the orthodox royal family, he still possessed royal blood within him. How could he be caged up like a prisoner?
This was a humiliation worse than death to him.
The other two Aurous Core Stage cultivators were his subordinates. When they wanted to help him, they were easily forced back by Zhu Yi.
They dared not say anything and only rushed back to inform Shi Xingyun.
Zhu Yi ignored the youth who was ranting and cursing. He kept the Great Boundaries of the Celestial Light and Darkness Mandala and turned around to nod at Gu Lei, “Sorry to have made you wait.”
Gu Lei laughed, “You are too kind. If you have the time, let me introduce my junior to you.”
Zhu Yi followed him. As he walked, he was pondering, “That tooth seemed to contain some form of dark power concept. Not sure where does it originate from.”
As he could not understand where the tooth came from, Lin Feng helped him through the system by distinguishing it.
Lin Feng was surprised, “It is the tooth of the Dark Beast, Ming Du. This comes as a surprise.”
Previously, Lin Feng had engaged in a lucky draw through the system and won a magic item. It was a jade carving of a Black Crow and it contained the spiritual power of a Tianluo.
Tianluo, or also known as the Black Crow, was one of the most domineering Immemorial Demon. It was birthed out of an untouchable darkness and it was a beast that controlled a mysterious yet dark power.
But the Tianluo was not the strongest living spirit that possessed such a dark power. It was the Dark Beast, Ming Du.
Ming Du was shaped like a panther and its head had a lone horn. Its entire body was black and was covered with purplish-blue flowery patterns. It was extremely savage and it was an even more powerful Immemorial Demon than the Tianluo.
When Lin Feng obtained the jade carving of the Black Crow, he felt that he was a little lacking in his knowledge of dark power, although he had a faint idea of it.
On one hand, the spirituality of the jade carving was incomplete. On the other hand, the dark power of the Tianluo deviated from the source of dark power quite significantly.
But now that they have obtained the tooth of Ming Du, both Lin Feng and Zhu Yi could gain a deeper understanding of dark power.
Light and darkness were two extremes. Lin Feng possessed the Endless Brilliance Tathāgata Mantra from the Great Thunderclap Temple. But now if he could understand the source of dark power and the mystery behind it from Ming Du’s tooth, then he could enter a new level in terms of his comprehension of the powers of light and darkness.
Lin Feng’s Steel Tree Avatar did not follow behind Zhu Yi and Gu Lei. He walked around on his own and observed the contents of the trade deals everywhere.
But he expanded his supernatural awareness and continued to keep a lookout for his disciples.
He saw Gu Lei leading Zhu Yi to a group of Purple Clouds Sect cultivators. Xiao Budian was there too.
As he saw Zhu Yi approaching, Xiao Budian immediately laughed, “Second Senior, this lady is Li Kuiyin from the Purple Clouds Sect.”
Zhu Yi was a little taken aback, whereas Lin Feng was stunned.
Xiao Budian was smiling widely and his eyes were sparkling. He was like a cute teenager.
He talked very sweetly, which caused Lin Feng’s goosebumps to stand.
He looked at Li Kuiyin carefully. She was a tall female cultivator. Like Gu Lei, she was in the advanced stage of the Aurous Core Stage. She looked like a determined person.
But she was very friendly at this point. Judging from Xiao Budian’s look, it seemed that he was fond of her.
Although she looked young, she was actually about a hundred years old. Xiao Budian was elated as he termed her ‘Big Sister’.
Zhu Yi took some time to regain his awareness. He communicated with Xiao Budian surreptitiously.
“What are you up to?”
Xiao Budian made a silly face at him, away from Li Kuiyin.
