Chapter 382: Time to Settle the Score
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
After ending his communication with the Taotie Grand Sage, Lin Feng tapped his finger and a light spot flew into space. The light spot was converted to a light figure in space.
The light figure turned into an illusion. It stabilized and projected a golden sea of fire. Everyone felt like they were looking at the Sun.
For it to have such a magnificent fire power of the Grand Sun Primordial Fire, the identity of the other party was known immediately.
Out of the Ten Demonic Saints, it was the Golden Crow Grand Sage
Lin Feng said, “Golden Crow Grand Sage, I haven’t heard from you for a long time.”
There was only the sound of the explosion of flames from the other side. After a while, there was a rough voice, “Leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders.”
Lin Feng laughed. After the Sect-Opening Ceremony at Shazhou County, he released the Fire Crow Demonic Commander along with the Fire Crow Young Master. Before they left, he handed them a ball of Purple Clouds for them to pass to the Golden Crow Grand Sage
At that point, Lin Feng established a connection with the Golden Crow Grand Sage and even formed an indefinite agreement.
“Your idea is, the time has come?” The Golden Crow Grand Sage asked.
Lin Feng laughed, “Right before our eyes. Please prepare. When the time comes, I will inform you.”
After remaining silent for a moment, the Golden Crow Grand Sage opened his mouth and said, “That is a deal. I will wait for your good news.”
As the light figure disappeared, Kang Nanhua raised his brows. Using his mana, he passed a message to Lin Feng, “Master, if news of us working with demonic clan spreads, it will not be good for our name.”
He was not questioning Lin Feng’s decision but was only worried. As of things now, the human and demonic clan were still at odds with each other.
Lin Feng looked at him and looked at the rest. His lips revealed a smile, “When did I say we are collaborating with them?”
Kang Nanhua was shocked and started to ponder. After a while, he was enlightened. “Master, what is your plan?”
Lin Feng smiled, “Our purpose of this battle is to take care of the Aeolus Sect and Yu Clan. But this will be too boring.”
“Speaking of this, I must thank them for giving us this opportunity.”
Under Lin Feng’s command, Xiao Budian and the rest revealed smiles on their faces. They were excited and started to prepare themselves.
“Everything is in place except for one thing.” When only Lin Feng was around, he peered far away and started to mumble to himself.
… … … …
Around the mountains at the North-South border of the central region of Mount Kunlun, there was a group of cultivators gathering.
They were standing together and among them were many little kids. Although they carried injuries, their emotions were stable. They could even be heard cursing the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
Deep within the mountains, four Aurous Core Stage cultivators bowed in unison towards an elder in white. “Third Granduncle, the total number of talented youths that we have accepted is 16.”
The elder in white sat a volcanic rock quietly. From his head to toes, there was no sign of his mana and his entire person seemed to have blended into space. Above his head, there was a breath of clear air from the Nine Heavens that was going straight down.
The elder in white was indeed a Nascent Soul Stage Grandmaster in the intermediate stage, who led a group of cultivators into Mount Kunlun. His name was Yu Shiling.
After hearing the report by the four Aurous Core Stage cultivators, Yu Shiling nodded his head, “Well done.”
One of the Aurous Core Stage cultivators followed with, “There are still 3 batches of people who are yet to return. I believe that they will have rewards for all of us.”
Yu Shiling instructed, “You must ensure that at least one communication must be established per day. Once there are traces that any disciples are missing, report to me immediately.”
The four of them nodded and retreated.
All of the Yu Clan disciples kept their distance and did not dare to disturb the Grandmaster’s rest. When Yu Shiling was alone, he stood up from the volcanic rock and bowed towards the sky, “Master, everything is going according to plan.”
“Those with lower potential have been released. When they get to Shazhou County and spread the news, the Celestial Sect of Wonders will hear of it and will come here to investigate.”
In the sky, a water droplet was formed and floated in space.
For a normal person, the water droplet was too small and could not be seen clearly. But when the Nascent Soul Stage Grandmaster looked at it, he could feel that the water droplet was covering the entire sky. It was boundless, as if the entire sky was frozen within this water droplet.
There was a deep voice resonating from the water droplet. This voice could not be heard by others except Yu Shiling. The voice sounded very majestic and reverberating towards Yu Shiling.
“If the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders does not appear, everything will be carried out by all of you. There is only one principle. Shi Tianhao must not be spared.”
As Yu Shiling heard it, he nodded his head hurriedly, “I will carry out your instructions, Master.”
The water droplet in the sky disappeared all of a sudden.
… … … …
On Mount Yujing, Lin Feng was seated in the Grand Heavens Pavilion. He sat on his knees on his seat and closed his eyes.
Suddenly, he opened his eyes wide and unleashed a streak of Purple Clouds. He opened a door in space and saw the Netherworld Hell Holy Man, Liu Zhikun, exiting from the door.
Liu Zhikun’s thin face revealed a smile, just like the first time they met.
“Master Lin, during the Sect-Opening Ceremony, we did not have a chance to congratulate you. My entire sect feels very regretful about that.” Liu Zhikun said. “We hope that this Deathly Gas Stone can help to make amends for that.”
As he said, Liu Zhikun retrieved a piece of dark volcanic rock. Although it was only as big as an egg in his hand, Lin Feng knew that that was the case because Liu Zhikun had used his mana to shrink space. The size of the black volcanic rock should be as huge as a small cottage house.
Although it was repressed by Liu Zhikun’s mana, Lin Feng could still feel the deathly aura from within it, which was very suffocating.
Lin Feng’s mana was threatening to resist it.
“It is indeed very powerful. I did not make a wrong guess. This is something I need!” Lin Feng was thinking and repressed the surge of his own mana. He used the Fences of the Heavens secretly, which made him feel much better.
Lin Feng thought in his heart, “Cultivating The Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtues has allowed my abhijna to be way beyond those in the same realm. But I still feel a little uncomfortable. There are very little people in the Immortal Soul Stage that can resist this Deathly Gas Stone. It is even rarer for one to use it for cultivation.”
“But for a normal Immortal Soul Stage cultivator, even for the Asura Path or the Immemorial God Slayer Sect, having this stone would be useless for them. But for me, this is a treasure.
Lin Feng looked at Liu Zhikun and laughed, “You are too kind. I am very thankful towards your sect.”
After receiving over the Deathly Gas Stone, Lin Feng waved his hand and a streak of mana brought Yang Xu and the other cultivator to the ground.
Liu Zhikun looked at the both of them, “Act with prudence in the future. Recklessness only leads to your downfall.”
As Nascent Soul Stage cultivators, Yang Xu and the elder in black were very domineering in the Ancient Yuantian World. People were always trying to get into their good books. They could not even remember the last time they had been reprimanded so badly.
But in front of Liu Zhikun, the both of them could only lower their heads in embarrassment. They did not even dare to be unhappy, “We will keep in mind your teachings.”
The both of them bowed towards Lin Feng too, “Thank you for being gracious and granting us mercy.”
Lin Feng nodded his head slightly and did not look at them again. He chatted with Liu Zhikun instead.
After conversing for a while, Liu Zhikun left with the two of them.
Lin Feng smiled while saying, “Take your time, I shall not send you off.”
Liu Zhikun replied, “It’s okay, we can go off on our own.” After he finished speaking, he dragged the two cultivators and left Mount Yujing through a spatial tunnel that Lin Feng set up.
After the three of them left, Lin Feng heaved a sigh of relief, “The item is finally here.”
He retrieved the Deathly Gas Stone from a Celestial Small World and found out that it was vibrating non-stop. Black gas was coming out from it and attacked the Purple Clouds that formed the Celestial Small World.
The Purple Clouds embraced the creation and evolution of life, thus it was ostracized by the black gas that was coming out from the Deathly Gas Stone. The collision between both parties caused the Celestial Small World to be on the brink of collapse.
“Slowly, slowly.” Lin Feng smiled slightly, “The Purple Clouds is the clear air from the Heavens and Earth, containing the power concepts of creation and evolution. However, it did not originate before Hong Meng opened the skies and was not the most primitive power that created life. That is your opponent.”
Lin Feng used his fingers to create a light spot in space. It was converted into a small formation. Although the size of the formation was small, the patterns on it were complicated. It was formed from the accumulation of patterns.
Lin Feng placed the Deathly Gas stone inside it, before putting something else into it. It was the Soul Creator Seal.
The two magic treasures came into contact in the formation. Not only was the Deathly Gas Stone being entirely ferocious, even the normal-looking Soul Creator Seal started to have some weird movements.
It was as if some noble character that possessed unlimited power had just awoken from its sleep and was stabilizing the universe and opening the Heavens and Earth again.
Lin Feng laughed, “Very good. As expected, with the Deathly Gas Stone, the spiritual power of the Soul Creator Seal is also inspired.”
He then added in the flower petal of the Dual Polarity Flower, adding power to the Soul Creator Seal. There was a prosperous life force brewing in the formation.
Whereas the Deathly Gas Stone was pushed to a corner. At the end, it was like an enraged beast and its body revealed pieces and pieces of string-like black entity that was extremely ferocious. The places that it encountered experienced a fall in the power of life.
Not only was the Soul Creator Seal and the Dual Polarity Flower being threatened, even the movement of the formation was in a disarray. It was as if it was influenced by the deathly aura and became weaker, reaching its death.
“Lunar-Destroying Deathly Gas! I have succeeded!” Lin Feng revealed a wide smile on his face, “Now I have everything. It’s time to settle the score.”
He kept his formation and released the Aeolus Sect Foundation Establishment Stage head cultivator. He said to them calmly, “You can now cut off the connection with the other side.”
