Chapter 489: Director and Scriptwriter of My Self-Cultivation
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
As he invited Lin Feng to his sect as a guest, the Celestial Sword Elder sighed in his heart.
Among the great powers in the Divine Lands, the Purple Clouds Sect was the closest to the Celestial Sect of Wonders. The friendship was established at the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai between Lin Feng and the Blue Pavilion Holy Man. After that, their relationship continued.
After the Celestial Sect of Wonders dominated in Mount Kunlun, the Purple Clouds Sect was the first to congratulate them, which made their ties even closer.
But in fact, before the Celestial Sect of Wonders was set up, the Heavenly Master Sword Sect had already interacted with the Celestial Sect of Wonders. It was a pity that it did not develop, which made both sects grew distant from each other.
The Heavenly Master Sword Sect was trying to amend their mistake.
Lin Feng did not mind this as forming an alliance was not a bad thing. Not only towards the Heavenly Master Sword Sect, he also responded positively to the treatment by the other sects.
In the end, they had a good time and bid each other goodbye. Lin Feng smiled and said, “My comrades, we’ll meet again.” After he finished speaking, he converted into a streak of glowing light, broke through space and left.
As everyone watched him leave, there was a sudden silence in the venue. Everyone started to ponder and countless ideas flashed across their heads.
The Flying Snow Swordmaster and the Sun Radiance Swordmaster looked at each other and sighed. They had the same thought, “After we were attacked by the Mount Shu Sword Sect, this alliance was doomed. But after Lin Feng rescued us, the confidence to resist the Mount Shu Sword Sect was revived.”
“Just that before the gathering started, the source of this confidence was the Great Qin Empire. But now it has become the Celestial Sect of Wonders.”
This result was within Lin Feng’s expectations. However, he thought on an even deeper level. “Is this yet another gift that Shi Yu is giving me? Or is this a test? But he must not have expected it to end in this way.”
When the Mount Shu sword cultivators arrived at the scene, the Great Qin Empire could still send reinforcements in time. But they decided not to do anything and let Lin Feng take charge.
However, Shi Yu did not expect Lin Feng to be so powerful, as he took down the Mount Shu sword cultivators in a very short period of time.
Eventually, besides the loss of face of Mount Shu, the credibility of the Great Qin Empire was also damaged.
After Shi Yu considered the situation, he eventually continued to remain silent. Although that was harmful to the credibility of the Great Qin Empire, he managed to pass the job of pressurizing the Mount Shu Sword Sect to the Celestial Sect of Wonders. He watched behind the scenes and focused on cleaning up the powers of the aristocratic families in the country.
Only he would know the loss and gains of making this decision.
Shi Yu believed Lin Feng could tell the connection in this entire matter. In this case, it was as if he owed the Celestial Sect of Wonders a favor. Both parties managed to form a connection with each other.
Lin Feng was stationed in space. As he travelled through space, he pondered and revealed a smile on his face, “Give before you take. I believe Shi Yu understands this logic.”
His consciousness entered the system and he checked his reputation. He found out that his reputation in every world had already crossed 80!
Even if there were areas where he did not reach 80 previously, his potential had already reached 80. Following the passing of time, the influence of the battle with Mount Shu materialized and his potential converted into true reputation.
To Lin Feng, the greatest reward for this battle was the huge increase in his reputation. Among all his exploits, including defeating a bunch of Immortal Soul Stage sword cultivators, destroying the 6 Mountains Celestial Sword Formation, killing Xin Longsheng’s physical spell body and obtaining the Grand Moon and Shaoyang Sword, anyone of them could be used to allow Lin Feng’s name to become famous everywhere.
And when all these things gathered together, Lin Feng’s reputation was greatly boosted. He was officially in the same status as Yan Nanlai, Xin Longsheng and other huge figures.
“I have crossed the expected count of 80 for my reputation, but…” Lin Feng looked at the reputation statistics in the system and raised his brows slightly, “…but, the overall reputation of my sect is still a little low.”
After this battle, Lin Feng’s reputation was 80 in most areas. There were some places that even exceeded 90, which fulfilled the mission of the system.
The reputation of the Celestial Sect of Wonders reached 80 in most areas, but there were some places in which the count was lower, but the lowest was only 70.”
The battle allowed Lin Feng’s name to spread across everywhere. Naturally, the Celestial Sect of Wonders’ reputation would also grow along with his reputation. But as compared to his reputation, his sect’s reputation was still lacking by a little.
After all, his personal and sect’s reputation could not be exactly the same. In the history of the Grand Celestial World, there were independent cultivators who inked their name in the history books with glorious achievements. But their legacies were never developed and thus never left any form of reputation.
When people mentioned these sects, they would only say that it was left behind by a certain powerful individual.
When Lin Feng recalled how the sect’s reputation experienced a huge boost in the past, he thought of something. “My reputation will affect to a certain extent, but the influence of my disciples will be more obvious in boosting the sect’s reputation.”
As he thought till here, Lin Feng laughed, “It’s time for the few rascals to mature now.”
For Shi Tianhao and the rest, their destinies had already been set up for them. It was time for them to write their own legends, ascend the stage where they should be and shine.
Lin Feng started to laugh heartlessly, “Mount Shu Sword Sect, why do you think I spared all of you this time? I am the Director and Scriptwriter of my own self-cultivation, of course I know that the brightest stages are set up not just for the main lead but also for the supporting casts.”
“However, I have to thank all of you for being so thoughtful.”
As opposed to the rest, Lin Feng was much clearer about the gains and losses of this battle.
Besides his reputation, there were other rewards that Lin Feng obtained. As he flipped his palm, a sharp sword aura was struggling within a ball of Purple Clouds. That was the remnant of the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi that he obtained from Xin Longsheng’s Saintly Celestial Swordsman after killing it.
The Saintly Celestial Sword Qi was very ferocious. Even with Lin Feng’s mana, he could not fully restrain it. It was possible to destroy it, but to restrain it for a long period of time without damaging it was difficult.
But Lin Feng had no plans to retain it either. After returning to Mount Yujing, he threw it within the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World. Over there, the huge sword casket was the destination of the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi.
With the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi, the grinding of the sword sped up rapidly.
In fact, Lin Feng knew that Xin Longsheng might have the same thought. He wanted to understand the sword mind of the sword and boost the art of swordplay of the Mount Shu Sword Sect.
Xin Longsheng retreated and could only fetch the Shaoshang Swordmaster and the rest back. His physical spell body was even destroyed. While he lost his face, he managed to experience the Heaven-Destroying Sword Qi. To figure out the sword mind of it would be beneficial to him.
However, without obtaining the sword, with Xin Longsheng’s sword cultivation, encountering the sword would only allow him to scratch the surface of what he could understand. There was no practical use in that besides increasing his desire for Lin Feng’s sword.
On the other hand, Lin Feng was different. He did not yearn to understand the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi. He only used it to grind his sword.
He earned an advantage, but no one knew about it.
However, Lin Feng was looking forward to the appearance of this sword to the world one day.
As he was thinking, Lin Feng felt that the repressed Shaoyang and Grand Moon Swords were shaking and trying to escape.
Lin Feng used his supernatural awareness to scan and saw that a human figure appeared on the sides of each sword. It was not an illusion, but a real figure formed from the sword mind and sword aura. They were the sword spirits of the Shaoyang and Grand Moon Sword.
For the sword spirit of the Shaoyang Sword, it was the appearance of mature middle-aged man. He wore a huge robe and had three strands of beard on his chin. He wore a calm expression and seemed imposing.
Whereas the sword spirit of the Grand Moon Sword was an appearance of a lady. She looked beautiful, her expression was very cold and her behavior was unpredictable.
The two sword spirits conjured a sword spell, causing their sword auras to shoot up towards the sky. There was a yellow light above them. The blurry yellow light was as heavy as the Earth. It was Lin Feng’s Heaven-Bearing Prints that was trapping them.
Outside of the yellow light, there were countless layers of space stacking on one another, forming a bright and transparent barrier that acted as a second layer of seal. Above this barrier, the small world created by the Purple louds acted as the third layer of seal.
As if they realized Lin Feng was looking at them, the two sword spirits looked over and stared at Lin Feng. The Shaoyang Sword spirit said in a deep voice, “Are you the leader of the Celestial Sword of Wonders? Trapping the Grand Moon and myself, isn’t it a move too rash and overly harsh on the Mount Shu Sword Sect.”
Lin Feng’s indifferent voice resonated in the Celestial Small World, “A person who insults others is bound to be insulted back. This ordeal that you are facing is because of Mount Shu.”
The Shaoyang Sword spirit was silent. As a sword spirit, his character was aligned with the art of swordplay concept of the Shaoyang Sword – peaceful.
Even the swordmaster of the Shaoyang Sword, the Shaoyang Swordmaster, was the most mature and friendly swordmaster among the 6 swordmasters.
The Shaoyang Swordmaster did not leave Mount Shu as his own sect leader and Supreme Elder had retreated, thus the mountain needed someone to command it. In addition, he did not approve of this operation of Mount Shu.
Therefore, he decided to stay on Mount Shu and steer clear from the matter. But since it was an executive decision by the sect, he did not object. He even gave the Shaoyang Sword to the Qingtian Swordmaster, which was used in the 6 Mountains Celestial Sword Formation to deal with Lin Feng.
However, he did not expect that Lin Feng was so powerful. Xin Longsheng was retreating, thus he sent he Saintly Celestial Swordsman, but he was helpless against Lin Feng too. The Shaoyang and Grand Moon Sword were eventually confiscated by Lin Feng.
There was an indifferent look in the eyes of the Grand Moon Sword spirit. She said, “Shaoyang, why are you talking so much nonsense? The winner takes all, but if you think we will concede defeat, then you are wrong.”
As she said, she infused with the Grand Moon Sword and converted into balls of fog. After that, she attacked the seals Lin Feng placed using his mana.
The Shaoyang Sword spirit sighed and he disappeared too. He infused with the Shaoyang Sword and converted into boundless golden light, shooting towards the skies. This caused a greater impact than the Grand Moon Sword.
Lin Feng laughed as he saw this, “Both of them are top treasures. They are indeed very active.”
