Chapter 373: Who’s Teaching Who?
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The radiance of the formation flashed, but Lin Feng did not think much about it. Jun Zining had already felt a chill down her spine. Her entire body was numb and the blood in her body was almost going to be solidifed by the fear.
She screamed in her heart, “An elder in the Nascent Soul Stage! It is the Nascent Soul Stage elder from the Yang Family, Yang Xu!”
Yang Xu did not even bother about Jun Zining. All his attention was focused on Lin Feng.
The three flags were given to the younger generation of disciples by him. Lin Feng had just torn apart the power of the Lightning Purgatory Formation and the person most affected by it was Yang Xu.
“Cultivation in the Aurous Core Stage? But your powers are strong. The Celestial Sect of Wonders is weird, as they say.” Yang Xu looked at Lin Feng unhappily and said coldly, “But don’t think that you can do whatever you want just because you are from the Celestial Sect of Wonders.”
“If it was your leader present, I might still give him some face. But you are just a small fry in the Aurous Core Stage. I am going to teach you a lesson today.”
As he said, Yang Xu clasped his hands together and the Icy Netherworld Formation was threatening to freeze Lin Feng to death.
He stared at Lin Feng’s line of vision and unleashed a fierce expression. He unveiled his intention to kill Lin Feng. Since he had already made his move, he might as well finish Lin Feng here and not give him any chance to report any news to his sect.
But following that, everyone was stunned.
As he faced Yang Xu’s powerful formation, Lin Feng smiled, “Let me teach you a lesson on behalf of your Yang Family elders.”
As he said, Lin Feng lifted his fist and exhibited the Heavenly Hammer of the Eight Trigrams.
In a split second, the heavenly spiritual energy around Lin Feng was being annihilated.
The image of the Eight Trigrams – Heaven, Earth, Wind, Thunder, Water, Fire, Mountain and Pond were converted to light figures. According to the position of the Eight Trigrams, they surfaced around Lin Feng’s fist.
The Heavens and Earth matched together, Wind and Thunder rose to life, Fire and Water blended together and the Mountain and Pond became reliant on each other.
The eight different power concepts combined in pairs and infused their powers with each other. An immense momentum was created and kept on increasing.
Following that, a tremendous power led to collapse and disintegration.
In this process of increment and endless disintegration, the power of Lin Feng’s fist reached a level that left Yang Xu and the rest shocked. Although the Steel Tree Avatar only had the cultivation in the Aurous Core Stage, Lin Feng’s Heavenly Hammer of the Eight Trigrams totally destroyed Yang Xu’s Icy Netherworld Formation.
Jun Zining and the three Yang Family cultivators were stunned.
To them, the scene in front of them had subverted their past experience and knowledge.
Although Yang Xu had not make use of geography or any magic treasures and used only his pure powers, the creation of his formation unleashed powers that were awe-inspiring. As it tapped on heavenly powers, a rare and outstanding mantra and abhijna was formed.
Yang Xu was an elder in the Nascent Soul Stage. His opponent now was obviously in the Aurous Core Stage. Following Jun Zining’s and the rest of the cultivator’s predictions, this battle was finished even before it started.
But who knew that the final result was Lin Feng destroying Yang Xu’s formation. This was indeed a shocking result.
Even Yang Xu was stunned himself. As he looked at Lin Feng again, his expression became more serious than before. “Who are you exactly? There have been rumors that the Celestial Sect of Wonders had a lot of freaks and that they were invincible in their same realm. Furthermore, there were also rumors that their Aurous Core Stage cultivators can defeat a Nascent Soul Stage Cultivator.”
“I had initally thought it was a rumor. Who knew that it was actually real?”
Lin Feng looked at Yang Xu and thought, “Who knew that you can still act like you are inexperienced till this day.”
Yang Xu became fully serious now. He scanned the surroundings, “The geographical conditions are not prime, thus the full effect of the formation could not be achieved. But at least eighty percent of its power should have been unleashed.”
He swiped his hand suddenly and a streak of white light appeared in space. It was then converted to a huge door made up entirely of ice.
At the same time, the spell in Yang Xu’s hand converted his mana to heavy snow and caused Mount Kunlun and its surroundings to be covered in ice. A huge and extreme formation map surfaced on the ground.
“Hell of Ice Formation, the Door of the Hell of Ice, open!”
In space, Yang Xu’s Door of the Hell of Ice started to open slowly. From within, gusts of chilly wind started to blow out from it. On the other side of the door, there was a hell that looked to be made entirely out of ice and snow. It exuded a deathly aura.
Looking in from outside, it was very dark. There was only a flickering dark light, that seemed to be bits and pieces of an ice sculpture.
Whoever stepped into this hell only ended up with one result. It was that their flesh to their soul would be frozen and they were converted to ice sculptures. They were unable to reincarnate and they would sleep in the depths of the Hell of Ice.
When the door opened, Lin Feng felt that the space covered by the formation was being twisted. The door and the formation seemed to combine into one entity and wanted to drag everyone within the boundary into the Hell of Ice.
Yang Xu had also disappeared, as if his entire body had blended in to the formation.
“This formation looks more powerful.” Lin Feng laughed. “But it is a pity that I have no patience to watch anymore.”
Lin Feng lifted his hand and released a streak of Purple Clouds. It was converted to a Celestial Small World and masked Jun Zining within it. Otherwise, she would have been frozen to death.
After Jun Zining was masked by the Purple Clouds, she was worried initially, “The Hell of Ice Formation is one of the powerful formations of the Yang Family. Although it is not used in an icy environment, Yang Xu exhibited the formation with his Nascent Soul Stage cultivation. Furthremore, with the assistance of his Nascent Soul Stage magic item, he has the ability to descend this place into a hell of ice.”
“This person seems to have created a small world, but how is it able to resist the Hell of Ice?”
She was worried, but after a few moments, she realized the stability of the Celestial Small Worlds had not changed. It was not even affected by the Hell of Ice. This left Jun Zining shocked, “Was everyone wrong? Is this person not of an Aurous Core Stage cultivation?”
Lin Feng’s Steel Tree Avatar was indeed in the cultivation of the Aurous Core Stage. But by the virtue of his mantras and abhijna, his Nascent Soul Stage opponent was nothing to be worried about.
But his Steel Tree Avatar and his Avatar of Ares was the same. Their strengths did not lie in their mantras. If he purely used that to fight Yang Xu, he would be fighting Yang Xu’s strengths with his weaknesses.
Although Lin Feng’s Steel of Tree Avatar could inherit the comprehension of the wondrosity of time and space, it still lacked the practical experience of the Void Lightning Tribulations. Therefore, the comprehension was still incomplete.
Furthermore, the strength of the Steel of Tree Avatar was the strength and toughness of its flesh. Without using his flesh to resist the Lightning Tribulations would signify the lack of an experience.
“I could use you to test the new abhijna that I have just comprehended.”
Lin Feng laughed in his heart. The entire body of his Steel Tree Avatar was surging with energy and all his acupoints began to tremble. His entire body was flashing with a layer of dark radiance.
As Yang Xu watched this scene, he was a little terrified. He felt a sense of danger rushing up his head.
Before he could even react, Lin Feng’s figure flashed across and his entire body disappeared into space.
When Lin Feng appeared again, a thunderous sound echoed in space. Following that, a bright and scorching sun rose again!
As if it was dawn, all darkness was immediately removed. However, it gave little hope to everyone. But all the fear and desolation had disappeared.
Disaster, Bad Omen, Destruction, Death!
The scorching sun left everyone shunning away from it. It was as if taking a look at it directly would cause one to be blinded.
Only Yang Xu could clearly see the appearance of the sun. It was a human fist, an iron fist that was burning with a golden flame!
Lin Feng was standing at the side of the Hell of Ice and his right hand made a fist in a weird position.
The closer it was from the Hell of Ice, the colder it was. Lin Feng was almost frozen by the frost, but before it could get nearer to him, it was already melted by Lin Feng’s fist.
“Four Appearances Heaven Cleaving Script. Fire. Fist of the Great Heavenly Sun!”
As Yang Xu looked over, Lin Feng used his fist to punch the door of the Hell of Ice. It was immediately broken into many pieces and was descending on the ground.
But before the broken ice pieces could even land on the ground, they were melted by the ferocious heat in mid-space. Rain was descending in the mountain valley instead.
The Hell of Ice was destroyed by Lin Feng’s fist!
Lin Feng remained in space and his fist was lifted up. The darkness in the place was replaced by light and the surrounding air was steaming. The place seemed to transformed into a desert instantaneously.
Lin Feng did not stop. After clenching his Fist of the Great Heavenly Sun, he continued to batter the remaining sections of the Hell of Ice without mercy.
Yang Xu screamed in horror and the radiance above his head flickered. Ever since he reached the Nascent Soul Stage, he never thought that he would actually be forced into such a stage by an Aurous Core Stage cultivator.
The essence of his Nascent Soul was invested into the Hell of Ice. With a boom, the half-remaining door of the Hell of Ice opened and destructive gas along with gusts of chilly wind surged out from it.
For a moment, it was as if the hell and the mortal world was connected.
The sun that Lin Feng was holding in his hand collided with the power of the Hell of Ice that was twisting time and space, causing both of them to be dissipated.
The place was filled with the fragmented pieces of ice, converting it to a snowy land.
And the scorching sun was finally destroyed in this battle and was converted to a boundless sea of fire. It engulfed the entire horizon.
Mount Kunlun was converted into a weird place at this moment. The upper half of it was filled with golden fire while the lower half was snowy white. The two sides were clearly separated and it seemed as if the end of the world had arrived.
As Yang Xu grimaced, his Nascent Soul was sent flying out of the Hell of Ice. He did not even hesitate and quickly retrieved it back into his body. He looked in the sky while opening his mouth wide, swallowing the battered Hell of Ice into his mouth. He wanted to escape without even looking back.
Under the protection of the Celestial Small Worlds, Jun Zining was able to avoid the dangers. But the repercussions of the collision that happened previously caused the Celestial Small Worlds to be damaged a little.
She looked at the sky in a daze. The sea of fire separated and a figure emerged from within. It was Lin Feng’s Steel Tree Avatar.
Lin Feng looked at Yang Xu escaping and laughed, “It is too late to leave.”
