Chapter 350: Picking up Trouble
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Xiao Budian and Tuntun would often leave Mount Yujing to go to Mount Kunlun for leisure activities.
In fact, they went out to search for delicacies to fill their stomach.
When they saw something delicious, they would bring it back to enjoy slowly.
But this time, Lin Feng could feel that the both of them brought back a live thing. This live matter contained an obscure power that was difficult to detect, but it was extremely ferocious.
This left Lin Feng confused, “What did these two troublemakers bring back?”
He used his supernatural awareness to scan the area and saw that Xiao Budian and Tuntun were sneaking up the mountain. They were looking left and right to make sure no one was looking at them. After confirming that, they were both relieved.
They fled into Xiao Budian’s cave and look around the cave cautiously. After confirming that no one was there, Xiao Budian retrieved his Green Bronze Ding of Emptiness.
Lin Feng saw a flaming red small fox inside the three-foot high crucible.
The fur of the fox looked radiant, as if there was a vigorously burning flame. Its body was well-proportioned and it looked very graceful. Although the edges of its ears looked like they came from beasts, they revealed a servile aura.
It was just that the small fox looked like it was sick and was sprawled inside the Green Bronze Ding of Emptiness. It squinted its eyes and was unwilling to move.
It did not seem to care about what Xiao Budian and Tuntun was going to do to it and just laid on the floor without energy.
It was as if it was willing to be killed later as long as no one was disturbing it right now and let it rest.
But as Lin Feng saw this small fox, his eyes kept twitching. That was because the fox did not just have one tail!
“One, two, three, four…eight, eight tails.” Lin Feng saw Xiao Budian’s expression of hunger and the movement of his lips, “Silly kid, does he know what he is bringing back?”
From Lin Feng’s knowledge, the Heavenly Fox tribe from the demonic clan had a different talent. A small demonic fox in the Qi Cultivation Stage had one tail just like a regular beastly fox.
But when they promote to a demonic general, that was the equivalent to the human Foundation Establishment Stage, they would grow one more tail.
And as they formed the Aurous Core and promote to a demonic commander, the number of tails would increase to three.
From then on, as they grew by a level, the number of tails would increase by one.
Hence, in the intermediate stage of a demonic commander, there would be four tails. In the advanced stage, there would be five tails. Six tails would be when they formed the demon soul and were promoted to a demonic lord. In the intermediate stage of a demonic lord, there would be seven tails.
As for a demonic fox with eight tails, it meant that it was in the advanced stage of a demonic lord. It was only one step away from cultivating the indestructible demon soul and becoming a demon in the Grand Sage level.
As the demonic fox cultivated the indestructible demon soul and achieved the level of a Grand Sage, the number of tails would increase to nine. After that, any further increases in cultivation would lead to varying numbers of ring patterns on its tails.
Right now, the sprawling fox that was in the crucible looked harmless like a pet, but it was a demon in the advanced stage of a demonic lord.
Furthermore, it looked like it came from the Flaming Fox tribe from the Heavenly Fox tribe, which was one of the strongest tribes in terms of fighting power from the Heavenly Fox tribe.
The power of this small fox was unrivaled under normal circumstances, such that not even Jieyu or the Kui Cow King could match up. In the entire Mount Yujing, only Lin Feng could overcome it.
But it was just that it was obvious that the demonic fox seemed to be in bad shape. That was why it was acting weak and allowed Xiao Budian and Tuntun to keep it captive.
Lin Feng used his supernatural awareness to scan it and he felt that the fox’s body contained a very frightening power. This power did not belong to the original body of the fox, but rather it was an external power that was devoured by the fox.
But this power was too strong, such that a demon lord could not even digest it. It was causing chaos within the fox’s body and expended almost all of the fox’s energy, causing it to be weaker than a small demonic fox. That was why it was ‘picked up’ by Xiao Budian and Tuntun.
“This power seems very familiar…” Lin Feng’s gaze flashed. He recognized it, “This is the same feeling I had with the Grand Sun Primordial Fire and the Nanming Primordial Fire. But I still think it is not entirely the same.”
“Nice one, this is also one of the Primordial Fire!”
Lin Feng was a little shocked, “What fortune is this, besides the Nanming Primordial Fire, there is actually another Primordial Fire that has come knocking on our door.”
Besides Lin Feng, Xiao Budian had also discovered the problem with the fox. Although he was unsure of the concept behind the number of tails that the fox had, this did not interfere with his idea that the demonic fox contained an extremely frightening power within it.
Xiao Budian touched his jaw, “This is a little difficult to deal with.”
He used his elbow to knock Tuntun and said, “Hey, you said that this thing tastes nice, that is why we brought it back. What do we do now?”
Tuntun pursed her lips, “I did not know it will be like that from the start!” She was a little guilty. As a demon, she knew what the number of tails on the fox signified.
Xiao Budian laughed, “Seeing that it is able to repress such a frightening power, the level of cultivation of this demonic fox is not low. It is just in a weak state now.”
“Since you suggested to bring it back, after it has recovered fully, it will find you to settle the debt first.”
Xiao Budian laughed while looking at the fox, “Hey, do you think what I said is correct?”
The eight-tailed fox continued to squint its eyes and was lazy to even lift its head.
At this point, there was a figure outside the cave. Someone walked into the cave. It was Xiao Yan.
Upon seeing him, Xiao Budian and Tuntun were stunned. Even Lin Feng was a little taken aback. But he understood it immediately. The person most sensitive to the power of the Primordial Fires on Mount Yujing was Xiao Yan, undoubtedly.
As Xiao Yan walked into the cave and saw the small fox, he said unkindly, “Did the two of you pick up nonsense again.”
Xiao Budian laughed cheekily while Tuntun rolled her eyes.
Xiao Yan observed the eight-tailed fox meticulously and said in a deep voice, “It must have devoured one of the Primordial Fires. The Primordial Fire is countering back, that is why the fox is in such a weak state. He is experiencing the same issue as me.”
“Although it does not have as many varieties of Primordial Fire as me, the combined strength of the Primordial Fire that it devoured is much bigger than mine.” Xiao Yan lifted his head to look at Xiao Budian, “This is a risky situation. The powers of the fox and the Primordial Fire are locking horns now. Regardless of the outcome, there will be a backlash.”
“If the Primordial Fire emerges victorious, not only will it burn him to death, it will spread and endanger the mountain. And for it to resist the power of the Primordial Fire, the power of the demonic fox was also not one to be trifled with. If it cultivates the Primordial Fire successfully, it will be a disaster if he causes trouble on the mountain.”
Xiao Budian revealed a dreadful expression and looked at the demonic fox, sighing, “I can only let Master handle this then, but it is such a pity!”
Xiao Yan replied unkindly, “What is such a pity? You are not young anymore, don’t always just think about eating.”
At this point, Lin Feng’s voice resonated in space. “I have already known about the matter. Don’t fret. The two of you shall watch over this fox. If anything happens on Mount Yujing, I will be the first to know.”
Xiao Yan and Xiao Budian acknowledged in agreement and Lin Feng continued with, “Come here Tuntun, I have something to ask you.”
Tuntun felt guilty. Before she could even reject, a streak of Purple Clouds appeared and pulled her over to Lin Feng.
Lin Feng looked at her calmly. Tuntun looked a little uneasy and stared down at her toes.
“Do you know this fox?” Lin Feng’s voice was very steady, but as it landed in Tuntun’s ears, it was as if she was struck by lightning. She wanted to deny, but as she looked at Lin Feng, she nodded her head bitterly.
Lin Feng asked, “Tell me, where is the background of the fox?”
Tuntun answered in low spirit, “That is an eight-tailed demonic fox with a cultivation in the advanced stage of a demonic lord. It comes from the Flaming Fox tribe among the Heavenly Fox tribe and its name is Hu Yanyan. It has a nickname called the Flaming Fox King. Although it is in the advanced stage of a demonic lord, it is the most outstanding ever to exist. It is at the peak of the demonic lord level and is only a step away from achieving the indestructible demon soul.”
“She is the daughter of the first wife of the Heavenly Fox Grand Sage. At the same time, she is the most doted-on daughter of the Heavenly Fox Grand Sage. She is also a vicious character in Mount Qingqiu and her name rings loud in the entire Barren Lands. She is almost an outstanding talent like Long Ye, the successor of the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage.”
As Tuntun said to this point, she twisted her lips, “She is also the backer of Hu Fen.”
Lin Feng looked at her expression and knew that she suffered a lot at the hands of Hu Yanyan in the past when she went to find trouble with Hu Fen.
“For whatever reasons, she actually devoured such a huge amount of Primordial Fire that has left her so weak.” Tuntun said mockingly, “I must take this chance to exact revenge!”
Lin Feng laughed, “How do you want to do it?”
Tuntun thought for a moment and opened her mouth to say, “Of course I will…” As she opened her mouth, she could not continue.
If it was possible, she would swallow Hu Yanyan to appease herself. But as she thought of the frightening power of the Primordial Fire, she backed out, considering how even Hu Yanyan was tortured by it.
“But I cannot let her get away with it!” Tuntun scoffed. “My mother lacks a scarf made from fox skin!”
Lin Feng laughed again, “Let’s talk about it after we deal with the Primordial Fire in her body.”
After sending Tuntun away, Lin Feng pondered, “Let’s find a time to investigate which Primordial Fire the fox has in her body.”
Lin Feng was thinking but his expression changed all of a sudden.
After confirming that Wang Lin’s cultivation would not be disrupted, Lin Feng flew into the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World rapidly.
Over there, the young lady carrying a huge sword casket and walking around the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree continuously had already disappeared. Only the huge sword casket was under the tree and was shaking tremendously while letting out a pitiful roar.
