Chapter 492: The Road of Destiny Gone Awry
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Although Wang Lin had already formed the Aurous Core under the help of the Pearl of Styx and Cloud Elephant Seal, enabling him to fight the Nascent Soul Stage old freak, the freak possessed the Cosmic Form that was much more powerful than him.
If it were not for the fact that a hole was punched through the barrier and that they had been sucked into the Void Battleground, Wang Lin and Yang Qing would not have been easy to fight.
If Yang Qing had also formed the Aurous Core, the two of them could still challenge the old freak.
Of course, if the spatial barrier was not created, Wang Lin and Yang Qing could have contacted Lin Feng immediately. Just his Steel Tree Avatar alone was powerful enough to settle the problem.
And now, Wang Lin had ended in the deep ends of the spatial crack in void space. That meant to say that he was in the Void Battleground.
The Void Battleground was the top few dangerous spots in the Grand Celestial World. Even an Immortal Soul Stage Elder was not safe as he entered the Void Battleground.
However, the Void Battleground was filled with various cultivation treasures in the Grand Celestial World. They were very rare and precious treasures. Therefore, even though the place was filled with danger, there were still many people who were attracted to seek for treasures inside.
Shi Tianhao’s grandfather went missing in the Void Battleground. As his parents went to seek help, they placed him in Shi Tianyi’s house, causing him to meet with a disaster.
Even till this day, there still wasn’t any news from his grandfather or parents. Fortunately, the Shi Family still kept their natal lights. Their lights were never put out, meaning that they were fine.
The problem with the Void Battleground was that it was easy to enter but difficult to escape. Even for an Immortal Soul Stage Elder, it was easy for him to lose his way in the Void Battleground. If he wanted to escape, he must fully comprehend the secrets of time and also a little bit of luck.
Due to the space-time turbulence, the entire place was in a mess.
Even for Lin Feng, Xin Longsheng or Yan Nanlai, they could ensure their safety in the Void Battleground, but to find missing people and find their way back, it was a huge difficulty.
Lin Feng received the jade letter that Yang Qing had passed to him. He used his supernatural awareness to scan and discovered that there was a small space inside it that was created using some spiritual powers. It contained quite a few people.
There was a couple inside who were reliant on each other. They were very eye-catching too. They looked 70% similar to Wang Lin and they wore expressions of shock. That was because they witnessed the other party killing thousands of people in an instant and trapped their souls within the letter.
The two of them were extremely worried. They were worried for their son, Wang Lin. Although they heard that he was successful in his cultivation, he did not reveal much about himself normally, which inevitably led them to worry.
Besides Wang Lin’s parents, there were others who were thinking a lot. There were those who were terrified and crude among many others.
“It’s all Wang Lin’s fault, he invited all this trouble!” Someone who was annoyed shouted at Wang Lin’s parents furiously, “That old freak said that Wang Lin killed his grandson, thus he wants to murder our entire family!”
A middle-aged man beside Wang Lin parents snorted, “If it was not for Wang Lin the demon that came just now would have killed all of us. Have you forgotten how Sixth Granduncle’s family died tragically? Because it’s not your immediate family, so you are saying all these nasty things?”
The guy retorted, “I am also heartbroken because of what happened to Sixth Granduncle’s family, but what can I do? It’s fine if Wang Lin caught that guy and taught him a lesson. He had to kill that guy for his pleasure, now we are in deep trouble”
The middle-aged man was unforgiving either, “Wang Lin was avenging Sixth Granduncle and the rest. If you ask me, I’d say it was a good job! If we let him go, how can we face Sixth Granduncle anymore? Even if he was let off, he will still be back to seek revenge. When that happens, more people will be harmed.”
“Maybe it’s you. Let’s see how you can be so nasty when that happens.”
Both parties had their supporters. The people in the jade letter were arguing non-stop. As Wang Lin’s parents heard people talking bad about their son, they were enraged. But they were more concerned about his safety.
As Lin Feng looked at his parents and those who were standing up for Wang Lin and Yang Qing, he sighed, “What will their original destinies be like?”
Wang Lin was a very passionate person, but he was very quiet too. His face wrote the word “Loner” on it. Lin Feng guessed that Wang Lin’s road of destiny was one of passion but he could embark on it.
Losing and gaining was the main topic in his life. He could get what he want, but he felt more hurt losing the things he had.
Regaining what he lost was probably Lin Feng’s greatest motivation. To fulfil this target, he overcame all obstacles and finally reached the peak.
“Did I change Wang Lin’s destiny?” Many ideas flashed across Lin Feng’s head, “If I did not appear, what kind of destiny would Wang Lin have?”
The damage to his Innate Talent affected the starting path of his cultivation, rendering him ordinary.
The brilliant mantras of the Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtue, the Spiritual Replenishment Elixir, Heavenly Stone Spiritual Altar, Black Heavenly Treasure Tree, Heavens-Patching Vine, Seven-Piece Celestial Elixir, along with the Heavenly Ray Cosmic World sped up the time. This multi-pronged approach enabled Wang Lin to form the Aurous Core. Of course, he was willing to put in the hard work too.
Only 3 years had passed before Wang Lin decided to return to his hometown with his Aurous Core Stage. But Lin Feng and Wang Lin put in a lot of hard work before he managed to reach the Aurous Core Stage.
If Wang Lin had followed his original life path and entered the Hengyue Faction, what would he become today after 3 years?
Maybe the Nascent Soul Stage old freak did not even need to appear. Even the Aurous Core Stage demonic cultivator could have wiped his family clean.
Or maybe Wang Lin offended somebody outside, but his enemy could not find him, thus they took it out on his parents.
After that, as Wang Lin’s world collapsed, he would walk the road of destiny. Through tireless cultivation, he would become successful and exact his revenge.
This was probably the original script.
But now, everything was different. While the Nascent Soul Stage old freak made a move, Wang Lin managed to keep his parents alive.
In terms of feelings, this was naturally what Lin Feng wanted for Wang Lin. But in this case, with the huge twist of his destiny, could Wang Lin become the original Wang Lin anymore?
Could his road of destiny continue? This time, Wang Lin managed to avert disaster again. But would Wang Lin’s destiny as a loner take effect again?
Everything had become unknown. Just like how Wang Lin went missing and got lost at the Void Battleground.
That place was a very precarious place for an Aurous Core Stage cultivator. Not to even mention a Nascent Soul Stage elder who planned on killing him entered along with him. Although the space-time turbulence was difficult to predict, it was generally the case that those who entered together were not far from each other.
Honestly speaking, Lin Feng was happy for Wang Lin as his parents were not dead. But with regards to Wang Lin’s own situation, Lin Feng was a little worried.
For Wang Lin, Xiao Yan and the rest who were destined to be great individuals, Lin Feng was never worried about their safety. The bunch of them were not afraid of getting into trouble. They were destined individuals who played the lead roles in life.
Overcoming dangers were nothing to them and they should always remain humble no matter what. But the truth was, nothing was really too precarious for them.
A main lead who died was no longer the main lead. He would become the supporting cast. There was no place for him at the end of the show.
But now that Wang Lin’s road of destiny had gone awry, Lin Feng’s confidence was no longer very high.
As he thought till here, Lin Feng sighed, “Forget it. I shall take a walk instead. At the same time, I can look for Tianhao’s grandfather and parents.”
He returned the jade letter to Yang Qing and said, “In the jade letter, whoever was speaking up for your Third Senior, bring them back along with your Third Senior’s parents. Let them settle down at the Forest Abode. For those who are not in that group, just dump them at Shazhou County. When your Third Senior returns, let him deal with them himself.”
As he said, Lin Feng broke through space and sent Yang Qing in. His actual body on Mount Yujing conjured a spell and received Yang Qing.
At this point, the skies in the horizon developed a crack. From the crack, two Nascent Soul Stage cultivators walked out and saw Lin Feng. They were stunned, “Are you the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders?”
Lin Feng looked at them, “Are the both of you cultivators from the Great Qin Empire?”
One of them nodded his head, “We received news that there was a Nascent Soul Stage demonic arts cultivator cultivating a live soul here and even engaged in a fight with your disciple. Some of the Great Qin cultivators were also attacked by this demon. Thus, we quickly rushed over.”
Lin Feng nodded his head and looked at the crack in the skies getting smaller and smaller. “My disciple, Wang Lin, fought with him. Unintentionally, a pathway to the Void Battleground was opened and the both of them were sucked into it.”
“Just report what happened to the Great Qin Empire. As for the cultivators who suffered in the hands of that demonic arts cultivator, I am deeply regretful.”
The two cultivators replied, “This is territory under the Great Qin Empire. Since the demonic arts cultivator was using some demonic spells to cultivate a live soul and desecrate members of the Great Qin Empire, we will not let them off.”
Lin Feng flew up towards the closing crack in space. “I shall leave the rest to the 2 of you. After you have found out the background of that demonic arts cultivator, please inform the Celestial Sect of Wonders if he has any accomplices.”
Although he sounded indifferent, the two Great Qin cultivators knew that Lin Feng was angry.
If that old freak was just an independent cultivator, then forget it. If there was someone as his backer, then things would get messy.
Everyone in the Divine Lands knew that once the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders was angry, even huge figures from Mount Shu had to step aside.
Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares flew into the sky and entered the spatial crack without hesitation. Following the space-time turbulence, he entered the Void Battleground.
