Chapter 381: Trap
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Since the Aeolus Sect and the Yu Clan had colluded together, they must not be far off from each other.
Lin Feng used his supernatural awareness to scan the surroundings and quickly found a bunch of Aeolus Sect disciples. As expected, there were two average youths among them who were injured and lost.
The Yu Clan cultivators acted as the successors of the Celestial Sect of Wonders in front of these two youths, before the Aeolus Sect stepped forward to help them.
At this point, an Aeolus Sect cultivator and another person was having an argument somewhere distant, “You cannot find them and now you are blaming us?”
Lin Feng could tell that the other person was a Yu Clan cultivator from his mana. He looked gloomy, “We waited at the agreed route, but we did not see anyone. Naturally, we came to look for you.”
He looked at the Aeolus Sect cultivator in front of him and laughed, “Don’t tell me you all botched it up? Don’t say that I didn’t warn you. If you really want to accept them as disciples, you are bound to let the cat out of the bag when they see their attackers in the same sect.”
“We had agreed to collaborate for this reason.”
The Aeolus Sect cultivator snorted, “I am not so stupid. Of course, I understand this, that is why I am saying once more. I had chased the kid to your path, but I met you after that. As to where the kid went, I am clueless.
The look of the Yu Clan cultivator became even more gloomy. “If this is as what you said, something unexpected must have happened.”
“Are you saying…” The Aeolus Sect cultivator was not dumb either. As he thought of something, his expression changed, “Did someone save him”
The Yu Clan disciple nodded his head, “That kid only has a foundation in Qi Cultivation. He could not have escaped the search from the two of us who are in the Foundation Establishment Stage. The only explanation is there was a third party.”
His face revealed a layer of fear, “The worst that could happen was that a Celestial Sect of Wonders disciples saw him and brought him away…”
As they were saying, the sky above them suddenly turned purple. Purple Clouds surged and engulfed the entire space.
Everyone’s expression changed. In the next moment, they saw Lin Feng and his disciples emerging. Lin Feng turned his head towards Xiao Budian and laughed, “The kid that you saved is the one who escaped from them.”
Shi Tianhao looked at the bunch of Aeolus Sect cultivators and the Yu Clan cultivator, before saying, “What a coincidence, we bumped into him.”
The other party was unable to retaliate and was captured.
The two kids in the group who were coerced felt the same as the kid over with the Yu Clan. Initially, they were unfriendly towards Lin Feng and the rest. But when Lin Feng gathered the two groups of people today, the youths who were scammed changed their expressions.
They could clearly tell that the enemies that had attacked them were in the group.
After a few moments of confusion, these youths recognized what had happened. All of them were furious for being tricked.
They felt feelings of resentment and hate towards the Celestial Sect of Wonders initially because the ‘truth’ that they witnessed had deviated too much from what they had expected. They yearned to be accepted as disciples, but found out that the people they idolized were monsters. That was why they were disappointed and furious.
But now that they discovered the truth, they felt even more angry. They shifted their hate from the Celestial Sect of Wonders towards the Aeolus Sect and the Yu Clan.
Everyone was brought back to Mount Yujing and Lin Feng handed the few youths over to Xiao Budian and Yang Qing.
As he looked at the gloomy young man in white, Lin Feng asked, “Confess, I don’t wish to search your soul.”
The young man in white trembled and answered, “I am Yu Cheng, the descendant of the third wife in the Yu Clan. I have seen you before.”
Yu Cheng knew that he could not hide anything in front of Lin Feng, hence he told everything he knew to Lin Feng. He did not plan the scheme and was just someone carrying it out. He believed that Lin Feng would not bother himself with someone like him who was a small fry. Of course, he knew that his future days would not be good.
After hearing Yu Cheng’s confession, Lin Feng found out that the Yu Clan and the Aeolus Sect had indeed colluded. Furthermore, it was not only these two bunches of people who were in action.
Besides them there were others spread out across Mount Kunlun. They were there to interrupt those who were traveling to Shazhou County to seek discipleship with the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
For those with lousy potential, they let them off. But for those who had potential, they stopped them.
Every batch of people was a mix between the Aeolus Sect and the Yang Clan. Both parties would keep a gap between themselves and used the Voice-Projecting Crystal to communicate. This was how they colluded.
At times, they would stop those who had lousy potential. They would then put on a show just to smear the name of the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
“One Nascent Soul Stage cultivator in the intermediate stage from the Yu Clan entered Mount Kunlun to helm all of this?” Lin Feng nodded his head slightly, “Those who were stopped will be sent to him.”
“It was the same for the Aeolus Sect.”
After finding out what he wanted to know, Lin Feng called Zhu Yi to bring them away. They were sent for trial and stood under the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree alone, staring into space and were not allowed to speak.
After a while, Zhu Yi returned. Shi Tianhao, Wang Lin and a bunch of disciples came before Lin Feng. Only Xiao Yan had retreated behind closed doors and Lin Feng did not want to disturb him.
Both Kang Nanhua and Miao Shihao also arrived. Kang Nanhua creased his brows but did not speak. Miao Shihua looked at Lin Feng from the corner of his eyes and said, “Master, we cannot sit and doing nothing about this.”
Lin Feng smiled slightly, “Relax Shihua, I know what to do.”
At this point, Zhu Yi and the rest had already understood everything. Lin Feng also told them everything about Yu Cheng’s confession. Everyone was emotional and unhappy.
“Master, I feel that there is something wrong…” Zhu Yi pondered for a moment and said.
Lin Feng heard it and revealed a smile. He used his right hand to point at Zhu Yi, “Zhu Yi, you are very meticulous.”
Yang Qing and Yue Hongyan were stunned. Xiao Budian also felt that it was weird. Wang Lin was thinking hard about things.
Kang Nanhua and Miao Shihao looked at each other and pondered.
Lin Feng looked at Xiao Budian and asked, “Tianhao, what is your preferred method of action?”
Shi Tianhao replied, “Find the two Nascent Soul Stage Grandmasters of the Yu Clan. They must have the detailed locations of the disciples of the two parties who entered Mount Kunlun. In this way, we can catch all of them at one go.”
“Furthermore, for those who were captured, if they did not return to their nest, the two Nascent Soul Stage Grandmasters would also know about it.
Lin Feng laughed, “Tell me then, who is the most suitable for catching them?”
Shi Tianhao answered, “Now that things have come to light, you do not have to do it personally. Eldest Senior is still retreating, so we don’t count him. Second Senior, Third Senior, Elder Kang, Elder Miao, Jieyu, Kui Cow King, Tuntun and myself makes eight people. Just choose four out of this eight and victory is guaranteed.”
“I do want to see that Yu Clan Grandmaster…” As he said till this point, Shi Tianhao suddenly stopped and he was enlightened. He turned his head to look at Zhu Yi and saw him nodding his head.
He looked at Lin Feng again. Lin Feng smiled slightly and Shi Tianhao understood his meaning. He kept quiet, but his gaze became colder and colder and he laughed, “Hey, Yu Clan!”
Everyone recalled slowly and Yue Hongyan snorted, “Trap!”
Yang Qing was also a little enraged, “They are evil. It is a trap for Youngest Junior.”
Wang Lin said, “Youngest Junior is the main target, but all of us are involved too. Hmm, besides Master, whom they may not have the confidence to keep him, they will be happy to trap the rest of us.”
Lin Feng’s expression did not change and he even wanted to laugh. As he looked at everyone around him, he said, “Our sect has risen in power in the Divine Lands, attracting hatred from other great powers. This is not unexpected.”
From interrogating Yu Cheng, Lin Feng already knew that the plan of the Yu Clan and the Aeolus Sect was supposed to be carried out after the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai. It seemed that the brilliant showing of the Celestial Sect of Wonders, especially Xiao Budian, had triggered them.
“Aeolus Sect, Yu Clan…haha!” Lin Feng laughed and sent out a streak of Purple Clouds, bringing Tuntun before himself.
“Lin Feng said, “Tuntun, I need you to liaise with your father, the Taotie Grand Sage.”
Tuntun looked at Lin Feng in surprise. After she reformed her body, although she had no intention of returning to the Barren Lands, she remained at Mount Yujing as she wanted to enjoy the delicacies over here.
But Lin Feng helped her to form a connection between her family and herself. What made Tuntun surprised was that her father asked her to stay at the Divine Lands after a period of consideration. She could go back when she wanted to.
Apart from that time, Lin Feng did not have any other contact with the Taotie Grand Sage. Now that he was putting up such a request, Tuntun was a little surprised.
After establishing connection, there was a low voice resonating from outside, “How are you, Master Lin?”
“You are too kind, Grand Sage.” Lin Feng answered. “I need your help in contacting someone today.”
Taotie Grand Sage replied, “Who?”
Lin Feng said a name and the Taotie Grand Sage went silent immediately. Lin Feng did not rush and waited quietly.
After a while, the Taotie Grand Sage replied, “Okay!” The communication was terminated after that.
Lin Feng turned his head and looked at everyone, “I have always told all of you that we as Celestial Sect of Wonders must never be at a disadvantage!”
“We must know who our enemies and friends are. If our enemies dare to trigger us, we will send them to hell.”
He laughed slightly, “The battle at the Sect-Opening Ceremony is the first battle that we used to announce our name. Seems like some people are still itching to be beaten up. Just for this time, let us shed more blood!”
