Chapter 421: Someone’s in Trouble
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
During the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai, the second-generation disciples did not witness the exciting performances of Wang Lin and the rest.
The previous battle at Mount Kunlun and the current battle at the North Polar Sea were showcased to the junior disciples of Mount Yujing through a light image using Lin Feng’s mana, for them to watch Zhu Yi in action.
As for Lin Feng’s own sparring, he did not show it to others. In front of these disciples, it was necessary to keep some sense of secrecy.
But it was fine to let them watch Zhu Yi and the rest battle. It would be advantageous for them to understand the strengths of their own sect. Of course, they had to win and they had to win brilliantly.
Including Xu Yunsheng, Ying Luozha and the others, the bunch of junior disciples were in awe as they watched.
During the battle of Mount Kunlun, Shi Tianhao used his Aurous Core Stage cultivation to overcome Yu Shiling, who was in the Intermediate Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage.
At the North Polar Sea, Zhu Yi similarly used his Aurous Core Stage cultivation to defeat the Snow Peak Grandmaster, who was in the Intermediate Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage. He further coerced a Nascent Soul Stage Elder in the Advanced Stage out and took away the sarira through the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
These results not only made Zhu Yi and Shi Tianhao famous in the outside world, they were also more reputable in the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
Almost all the Celestial Sect of Wonders disciple knew that Shi Tianhao’s true age was the same as how he looked. He was even younger than most of the second-generation disciples. With such powers that he had, it was very fearful.
Everyone wished that they could be like Zhu Yi and Shi Tianhao one day, achieving such fame and invoking such fear.
As for Lin Feng, he was unrivalled in the hearts of the disciples. They treated him like a god and he won the respect of all the Celestial Sect of Wonders disciples.
All their expressions were captured by Lin Feng, which made him nod in his heart, “Oh, in the long term, the Celestial Sect of Wonder would become stronger and stronger.”
“All of them are the foundation of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. But when they mature, they still need a lot of time. No rush.”
Vivant Joy Holy Man looked at Xu Yunsheng and the rest of the junior disciples, causing his brows to raise a little, “Master Lin, they are all in the Qi Cultivation Stage, are they going to enter the Secret Manual of Kun Peng too?”
“I’m giving them an opportunity to train themselves. It’s rare to find an environment like the Secret Manual of Kun Peng.” Lin Feng laughed while saying, “As for other things, I don’t expect anything.”
After hearing Lin Feng’s words, the bunch of Immortal Soul Stage Elders were a little guilty. They regretted bringing their elites over and no cultivators with low cultivation but high potential to the North Polar Sea.
They felt negative about the Secret Manual of Kun Peng from the start and thought that it would be a huge struggle. Under such a circumstance, even an Aurous Core Stage disciple would be useless. What more cultivators in the Qi Foundation Stage? However, this was except for Gu Lei and Shi Xingyun.
Zhu Yi and Shi Tianhao were not included as the two of them could not be comprehended with logic.
Furthermore, there was no conflict now and everyone can fulfil the agreement peacefully, giving everyone a chance. Even though there will be disputes after entering the Secret Manual of Kun Peng, the level of motivation would be different. Under such a situation, bringing a few disciples with lower cultivation to broaden their minds was a good opportunity.
But according to some people, they mocked Lin Feng’s Celestial Sect of Wonders for being too shallow in terms of their foundation. Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the rest of them were still presentable. But below them were the rookies who had just cultivated their Qi. No wonder Lin Feng grabbed any opportunity to give them an eye opener.
Regarding the thoughts and ideas of others, Lin Feng did not bother. He summoned Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao and the rest beside him and warned them, “All of you must take precaution as you enter the Secret Manual of Kun Peng.”
Zhu Yi and Shi Tianhao became serious and listened to Lin Feng.
“An extremely powerful Kun Peng who ruled the Heavens and Earth perished over here. He has an Undying Demon Soul Third Level, which is equivalent to the third level of the Immortal Soul Stage of the human clan.” Lin Feng said. “This demon entered the Divine Lands and was eventually killed as he was surrounded by human cultivators. Although his body perished, his inheritance has become the Secret Manual of Kun Peng. But his death does not mean that the Kun Peng demonic tribe is extinct.”
“Currently, there are still pure-blooded Kun Peng in the Barren Expanses. Their leader has also formed the Undying Demon Soul. He is known as the Kun Peng Grand Sage. Although he is not part of the Ten Demonic Saints, he is still an Immemorial Demon and possesses abilities that are way above many demonic tribes.”
As Lin Feng said till here, the bunch of disciples reacted. Zhu Yi said in a deep voice, “Master, what you mean is that the Kun Peng Grand Sage and his descendants have the idea of attacking this Secret Manual?”
Shi Tianhao said, “Master, I remember that you said before that the Secret Manual of Kun Peng only has this opening. Since you and the other Immortal Soul Stage Elders are guarding this place, even if the Kun Peng Grand Sage was very resourceful, he surely can’t force his way through, can he?”
“Furthermore, this is the Divine Lands. Coming from the Barren Expanses will not be easy for him.”
Lin Feng shook his head, “It’s not that simple. The Kun Peng that perished here is their ancestor. Since they are blood-related, he might know some other way to enter, say finding a tunnel through space. ”
“The outer area of the Secret Manual is covered by the Millennium Black Ice, that can’t be broken even by the Kun Peng Grand Sage. But within the Seven Legendary Primordial Fires, the Golden Crow demonic tribe controls the Grand Sun Primordial Fire while the Phoenix demonic tribe controls the Pure Yang Primordial Fire.” Lin Feng said, “Although the Golden Crow Grand Sage is repressed by me, the Golden Crow demonic tribe is not extinct. The Kun Peng Grand Sage may have obtained the Grand Sun Primordial Fire. Furthermore, there is the Pure Yang Primordial Fire by the Demon Phoenix tribe.”
“Years have passed. I believe that the Kun Peng Grand Sage is always thinking of obtaining his ancestor’s inheritance. As to why he has never appeared, maybe there are some conditions that are not in place yet. But we must be wary.”
Zhuge Fengling hesitated, “It can’t be that he comes now, can it?”
Lin Feng stared at the opening of the Secret Manual below, “Because we have opened the Secret Manual, there are changes to the space and formation of the Secret Manual. This creates a better opportunity for the Kun Peng Grand Sage to pounce on.”
“The Secret Manual has always been closed and none of the aura was able to leak out. As we are in the Divine Lands, we could use things that are related to the blood of Kun Peng to find its exact location.”
“But the Kun Peng Grand Sage is located at the Barren Expanses. With the vast space separating here and there, it would be very difficult for him to determine the location. Now that the Secret Manual is open, he may feel something there.” Lin Feng thought deeply and said, “Maybe he has always been waiting for this.”
Lin Feng and the rest had an agreement that the elders would not enter. But the Kun Peng Grand Sage is likely to not care about that.
And once the Kun Peng Grand Sage barged in, the Vivant Joy Holy Man and the rest were bound not to uphold the agreement. They would force their way in, which would cause the entire situation to be even more complex and possibly caused it to be out of control.
Therefore, although it was unconfirmed, Lin Feng had to factor it in and warn his disciples first, so that they will be prepared.
Shi Tianhao and the rest nodded their heads and kept Lin Feng’s advice in their minds.
“Okay, it’s fine as long as we are aware. I will keep a lookout for all of you. If there are really any changes, I will settle it. Just focus on roaming the Secret Manual.” As he said till here, Lin Feng smiled and used his mana to communicate with Zhu Yi and Shi Tianhao, “After the both of you enter, take more notice of the avatar of the Great Zhou Empire Crown Prince, Liang Yuan.
The both of them were stunned. They did not understand why. Zhu Yi could control himself, but Shi Tianhao looked directly at Liang Yuan and sized him up.
Liang Yuan and the Cheng Yun Holy Man both noticed Shi Tianhao looking over. Although they thought that Shi Tianhao was being rude, they did not take it to heart. Liang Yuan even nodded back at Shi Tianhao.
“Nothing special.” Shi Tianhao turned his head in bewilderment. He looked at Zhu Yi and the two of their heads turned. They said together, “That piece of sarira?”
“Master, Liang Yuan has the Acalanatha Tathagata Mantra from the Great Thunderclap Temple on his body?” Zhu Yi used his mana to ask.
After the Great Thunderclap Temple was destroyed, those who collected the most treasures from the place were not the monks that escaped from the temple, but the Great Zhou Empire, which had the most to gain from their downfall.
The rewards of the downfall of the temple were not purely treasures, territorial and human resources, but also the invaluable collection of Buddhist mantras.
Lin Feng laughed without speaking. Shi Tianhao laughed at the same time too.
As Jun Zining, Tuntun and Zhuge Fengling saw this scene, they were all wondering, “Who is so unfortunate now!”
As everything was in place, Lin Feng and the rest watched as they sent their disciples into the opening of the Secret Manual.
The Polar Sea Holy Man had very little disciples and chose a few North Polar Sea cultivators to enter the Secret Manual of Kun Peng.
The River Map Grandmaster and the Polar Sea Holy Man had some ties in the past, thus he was awarded the opportunity to enter the Secret Manual. He brought Li Yuanfang and the rest of his disciples along, just as how Lin Feng allowed Zhu Yi, Kang Nanhua and the rest to bring Xu Yunsheng, Liu Xiafeng etc…
After everyone entered the Secret Manual of Kun Peng, Lin Feng and the rest of the Immortal Soul Stage Elders split up to surround the opening of the Secret Manual. They looked at the whirlpool below quietly.
They did not clear the area either. Those North Polar Sea cultivators that did not have the right to enter continued to crowd around the ice layer above the whirlpool. They looked at the opening of the Secret Manual of Kun Peng. They did not hate the Polar Sea Holy Man but carried a glimmer of hope that they could enter.
Even if they could not enter, they might know someone who emerged from within. If these people had obtained anything, they could get closer and perhaps experience a surprise.
Lin Feng sat on his knees in space, before the Voice-Projecting Crystal delivered a message. It was from Song Fu from the Pavilion of Heavenly Trade in Shazhou County.
“Master Lin, someone is trying to land on Mount Yujing. I have explained to her that you brought Mount Yujing along with you to Great Zhou, but she will not leave. She says that she will remain in Shazhou to wait.”
Lin Feng’s first reaction was to think that Luo Qingwu came, “How old is she?”
Song Fu replied, “It is hard to tell as she is from the demonic clan. As she converted to the human form, it is difficult to judge her real age. But her cultivation is in the Demonic Lord realm and she has already formed the Demon Soul.”
