Chapter 379: An Imitator

As he looked at the two of them, Liu Zhikun was furious, “The Ancient Yuantian World always produces such unruly characters!”
As what Lin Feng said, it was a small thing if they had only trespassed and was caught by Lin Feng. The matter would be resolved as Liu Zhikun dropped by himself and ask for Lin Feng’s help in the matter.
If they were like little kids who were causing a ruckus at someone else house and were caught by the owners, things would be fine as long as the parents came over to apologize.
But if one trespassed and even hit the owner, that would not be a small thing.
Lin Feng was already very merciful by not killing them.
If Liu Zhikun could get what he wanted just by saying a few words, then Lin Feng’s reputation in the north foot of Mount Kunlun would be tarnished.
Even Liu Zhikun had to admit that if someone came to the Samsara Sect, caused trouble and even hit the leader of the Samsara Sect, he would banish them to the lowest end of hell and they would never be reincarnated.
But now that he was the one bailing them out, he was unsure of what to do. He looked at the both of them coldly. After that, he turned to look at Lin Feng and said steadily, “Since things have come to this state, the Samsara Sect is willing to compensate you. But I must take this two with me today.”
There were the highs and lows, peaks and off-peaks period in the internal struggles within the Samsara Sect. Recently, the internal fighting between the Six Forms was getting more intense. For the Netherworld Form, the resources of the Yang Family was very precious.
To protect its power and appease the Yang Family, Liu Zhikun did not try to force his way through and was prepared to exchange something for both the cultivators. Since the Yang Family caused the trouble, they had to be willing to pay the price for it.
He was also unafraid that Lin Feng might be too demanding. If Lin Feng was too greedy, then at most the deal was off.
In the cultivation world, good was triumphing while evil wass getting weaker. Although the Samsara Sect had changed their old ways of practising evil mantras, but their style of working was still the closest to being a demon style.
To preserve their power, the Netherworld Form would take a step back if needed. But if they could no longer concede anymore, they were willing to enter a full-scale war.
If there was an external enemy, the Six Forms would band together to resist the enemy.
Although Liu Zhikun was calm, he continued to stare at Lin Feng and his eyes were as dark as the Nine Netherworld Hell.
Lin Feng looked at him but he was as calm as ever.
“There is a rare treasure in the Samsara Sect. It is called the Deathly Gas Stone. I have heard about it for very long but have never seen it.” Lin Feng looked at Liu Zhikun expressionlessly and stared into his eyes. He said calmly, “I don’t mind handing them over, but I will need the Deathly Gas Stone as exchange.”
As he said, Lin Feng used his mana to keep the two cultivators again. “After I see the Deathly Gas Stone, these two can leave Mount Yujing.
Liu Zhikun did not move, looked indifferent and his expression did not change.
But in fact, Liu Zhikun had an urge to make a move.
However, he restrained himself from doing so.
The conditions that Lin Feng had proposed made Liu Zhikun uncomfortable. It was difficult for him to fulfill it, but it was not worth to fall out with Lin Feng.
The Deathly Gas Stone was indeed a special and rare treasure of the Samsara Sect, but it was not owned by the Netherworld Form. It was owned by the Asura Form. It combined the purest energy of death and ferocity.
It was not something that an Immortal Soul Stage Elder could consolidate on his own. It was necessary for a group of cultivators who had cultivated deadly mantras like the Asura Mantra to gather together and form it after years of hard work. It infused the determination of countless individuals and the power concept of desperation and escape.
It was rare, but for an Asura Form cultivator, it was not very useful.
If the deathly aura was too pure, it would be too unbearable. Even a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator in the advanced stage could not handle and would not be able to use it to cultivate further.
Even though an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator could handle the deathly aura, it was not very useful to his cultivation.
But if Liu Zhikun just went up to demand it, he would be ruthlessly killed by the Asura Form. Just thinking about it scares him.
After staring at Lin Feng for a while, Liu Zhikun nodded his head and said, “That’s a promise.”
“I shall wait for your good news.” Lin Feng smiled slightly. He used his hands to draw a stroke in space, revealing a spatial gap.
Liu Zhikun stepped into the spatial gap and left Mount Yujing.
Lin Feng stood where he was and ponder for a moment, “This is a delightful surprise. If I can successfully get this Deathly Gas Stone, my powers would be even greater.”
“Master, I have something important to report.” Suddenly, news from Xiao Budian arrived.
Lin Feng was a little curious as he did not know what he wanted to say. When Xiao Budian approached, Lin Feng noticed immediately that besides Tuntun and Zhuge Fengling, Yang Qing had also tagged along. His expression was very serious.
Xiao Budian was dragging his Nascent Soul Stage item, the Green Bronze Ding of Emptiness. The size of the crucible was very huge at this point. There was someone in the crucible.
It was a youth who was at most 14 or 15 years old. His body was very weak and he was in a coma.
This person was gravely injured but he had undergone treatment already. His life was no longer in danger. He was now in a coma, which was the natural process of recuperation. After a while, he would wake up.
“Well done.” Lin Feng praised Yang Qing. Although Xiao Budian could use his mana to restore the person’s body, such a meticulous work was bound to be done by Yang Qing.
Yang Qing laughed, but his smile soon vanished. “Master, things do not seem right.”
Lin Feng nodded his head and asked calmly, “Okay, tell me what is wrong?”
Xiao Budian placed the crucible down and describe everything to Lin Feng, “Master, I was playing on Mount Kunlun with Tuntun and Fengling. We then discovered this youth who was gravely injured.
“I have used my mana to stabilize his condition. When he awoke, he asked us for help.” Shi Tianhao sounded even more serious, “But when he found out that we were from the Celestial Sect, he became more emotional and struggled. He even said…”
Lin Feng pupils shrank, “He even said the person who attacked is the successor of the Celestial Sect of Wonder?”
Xiao Budian’s eyes raised, “Yes, that is it!”
Yang Qing became even more serious while Tuntun and Zhuge Fengling revealed complex looks.
Everyone present were aware that due to Mount Yujing’s unique characteristic, there were a lot of restrictions governing the entrance and exit of Mount Yujing. The only person who could enter and leave as he pleases was Lin Feng.
For others to enter or leave, they had to penetrate the illusory flow of space. For Nascent Soul Stage cultivators like Kang Nanhua or Miao Shihao, as long as Lin Feng did not stop them, they were free to leave. But if they wanted to enter, they could not do it.
Besides Lin Feng, for anyone to enter or leave Mount Yujing, they had to use the talisman he created. The talisman was only owned by Lin Feng’s 6 Immediate Disciple, Kang Nanhua and Miao Shihao.
The rest of them, such as Tuntun, Zhuge Fengling, Jieyu and Kui Cow King did not possess it.
Whenever Tuntun and Zhuge Fengling wanted to leave, they had to follow Xiao Budian.
The second-generation disciples onwards had not even leave the mountain ever since they came.
And the talismans were created from Lin Feng’s mana. Once they were used, Lin Feng would know.
Recently, everyone was on the mountain, except for Xiao Budian and the other two.
The so-called “Celestial Sect disciples” was definitely a scam.
Yang Qing said, “Master, after saving this young man, he woke up for a while. Although he was very wary of us, we still managed to get some information out.”
After hearing Yang Qing’s description, Lin Feng’s brows creased.
According to what the young man said, he was a villager from Mount Kunlun. After inheriting some mantras and independent exploration, he developed some foundation in Qi Cultivation and had always admired the Celestial Sect of Wonders. He hoped to be accepted as a disciple.
He heard about the Sect-Opening Ceremony in Shazhou County and proceeded towards Shazhou County in hope of some opportunity.
In truth, after the Sect-Opening Ceremony, there were many admirers who came to apply as disciples. They could not find Mount Yujing and therefore they went to Shazhou County.
Lin Feng had asked the Pavilion of Heavenly Trade to receive those who wanted to join the Celestial Sect of Wonders over there. Both Kang Nanhua and Miao Shihao rotated to proceed to Shazhou to bring interested individuals to Mount Yujing for Lin Feng’s test.
The thing was, no one had passed Lin Feng’s test. Those who had higher potential were already accepted at the Sect-Opening Ceremony. At the same time, there were many who were eliminated.
This young man also held the same view and tried his luck at Shazhou County
Who knew he met someone on Mount Kunlun who claimed that he was from the Celestial Sect of Wonders. He displayed one or two skills and could hold this young man down.
The young man had obtained an incomplete mantra by luck, but he had not seen the world before. The person in front of him seemed to be highly skilled, thus he believed that he was from the Celestial Sect and followed him back.
Who knew that the person scammed him and stopped him halfway. He actually wanted him to cultivate some sacrificial spell.
The young man risked his life to escape but was gravely injured. He eventually met Xiao Budian and the rest along the way.
As Yang Qing said till here, he paused for a moment before saying, “Master, I have helped him to treat his injuries. I feel that the mantra used on him is very familiar.”
Shi Tianhao nodded in agreement, “You are right.”
He laughed, “Hehe, a familiar foe!”
