Lin Feng was contacted by Jun Zining and he used his mana to connect to her. He heard her voice, “Elder, sorry for disturbing.”
“It’s fine.” Lin Feng replied, “Is there anything you want to ask me?”
Jun Zining reduced her volume, “Elder, I have found Qingwu. We are now temporarily residing in the house of Chen Yu, the Great Zhou Crown Prince’s assistant.”
She said abruptly, “Qingwu…is sick. She is recuperating now. After she is well, I will like to bring her to the mountain for further medical assistance. I hope you will accede to that request.”
Lin Feng smiled. He could tell that it’s not her words and that she was covering for Luo Qingwu. It seemed like Luo Qingwu was still very stubborn.
“In the autumn, my disciple Zhu Yi will go to Tianjing for the scholarly examination.” Lin Feng said, “When he goes over, the both of you can find him.”
Jun Zining replied hurriedly, “Thank you Elder.”
She hesitated awhile before laughing abruptly while stammering, “Elder, in these few days, if my family members go over to find me, please don’t reveal where I am. If they know, they will also find Qingwu. When that happens, they may send her back to the Luo Family. She…doesn’t want to return yet.”
She did not say it in her words, but Lin Feng could understand what she was thinking.
She does not want to return either.
But it was obvious that she had thought over things. At the Secret Manual of Kun Peng, although the Blue Pavilion Holy Man recognized her, he only roughly knew what happened. After he found out that it was not the Jun Family that contacted the Celestial Sec of Wonders, he did not take much consideration to the matter.
Although the Jun Family was anxious, they could not find Jun Zining. But they did know that Jun Zining and Luo Qingwu were very close. That was why they contacted the Luo Family, but Luo Qingwu’s Sixth Grandmaster kept his promise. He did not reveal Jun Zining’s secret.
He just revealed that Jun Zining was safe. But he did not reveal any more details.
Lin Feng said, “I have said before that it is fine for you to remain on the mountain. But if your family members come, or if a Purple Clouds Sect member comes to find you, I will not stop them.”
Jun Zining giggled on the other side, “Sorry for causing trouble to you, Elder.”
After disconnecting his communication with Jun Zining, Lin Feng shook his head and laughed. He put the matter aside for the moment.
He looked at Zhu Yi and smiled, “Zhu Yi, you topped the basic scholarly examination during spring. During autumn this year, you will have to go to Tianjing for the intermediate scholarly examination again.”
Zhu Yi nodded his head, “That is right, Master.”
Shi Tianhao laughed at one side, “Second Senior, I heard that topping the scholarly examination is very glorious. To top it 3 times in a row would be even more glorious. Do you have confidence this time?”
Zhu Yi laughed, “I was confident for the basic scholarly examination. But as for the intermediate and advanced scholarly examinations, I am not so sure about them. I have to see what’s the standard and the thinking of Liang Pan. But I know all my ideas and it will be easy for me to write a good essay.”
As he said till here, he looked at Lin Feng and said, “Master, I hope to retreat for a while. Before autumn comes, I hope to overcome the Tribulations of the Yin Wind and promote to the Advanced Stage of the Aurous Core Stage.”
Lin Feng said calmly, “Have you considered properly already?”
Among all his senior disciples, Zhu Yi was the most systematic and stable. He did not seem very impressive, but he was the most stable.
Although he had just overcome the Tribulations of the Yin Fire at the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai last year and promoted to the Intermediate Stage of the Aurous Core Stage, he had been cultivating on his own during this period of time. His knowledge of mantras and abhijna was slowly becoming deeper and deeper.
After creating the Golden Chapters of the Yansheng Eight Trigrams, he further comprehended the brilliance of the mantras of the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
After Lin Feng obtained the complete set of Mingdu remains, he comprehended the essence of the dark power within and passed it to Zhu Yi after that. Along with the true meaning of light from the Forever-Bright Tathagata Mantra, Zhu Yi’s cultivation increased significantly.
Furthermore, there was also the spiritual energy of the Cloud Forest Tree as the foundation, which allowed Zhu Yi’s cultivation to improve leaps and bounds.
Lin Feng had communicated with him regarding his problem with cultivation. Zhu Yi had the qualities to overcome the Tribulations of the Yin Wind, but whether he could overcome it and enter the Advanced stage of the Aurous Core Stage was an unknown.
His original intention was to further strengthen his determination after the autumn scholarly examination before overcoming the Tribulations of the Yin Wind again.
But now, Zhu Yi changed his thinking.
As he looked at Lin Feng, Zhu Yi answered, “I have considered it properly. This is not a reckless decision. I have made all preparations and believed that it is unnecessary to ponder about things too much. Things will go according to plan and I can cultivate properly.”
Shi Tianhao opened his mouth and thought of his Nine-Holed Aurous Core. He suddenly felt that his teeth were painful.
His Nine-Holed Aurous Core spat and swallowed spiritual energy. Naturally, it would remove the impurities from his Aurous Core. That was why it was easy for him to overcome the Tribulations of the Yin Fire. But it was a little awkward for him to overcome the Tribulations of the Yin Wind.
Lin Feng looked at him and laughed, “Silly kid, your accumulation is sufficient. As for your Aurous Core, there is a huge possibility that your problem can be solved. After you have made your preparations, you can also reach the Advanced Stage of the Aurous Core Stage.”
Shi Tianhao laughed, “I have to thank that Cloud Forest Tree.”
Yue Hongyan pursed her lips and her crimson red pupils seemed to dance with fire, “Master, I will like to form the Aurous Core.”
Her cultivation increased rapidly. To protect the stability of her foundation, she did not blindly push for the Aurous Core Stage. More haste might lead to problems.
If the Aurous Core could not form the purple pill, it would greatly restrict any future cultivation.
After a long period of quiet cultivation, Yue Hongyan’s foundation became stronger and she had more confidence.
“The time is indeed ripe. Just go ahead and do it. In the future, I will be on the mountain to protect all of you.” Lin Feng laughed, “But the cultivation barriers can only be overcome on your own.”
Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao and Yue Hongyan bowed, “We will remember your teachings.”
After the 3 of them entered the Heavenly Ray Cosmic World, Zhu Yi and Yue Hongyan followed the steps and began their cultivation.
Lin Feng just needed to stay at one side and watch them, whereas it was a little special for Xiao Budian’s case. Overcoming the Tribulations of the Yin Wind and ensuring that his Aurous Core was flawless was more problematic for Shi Tianhao as compared to others.
“Tianhao, you must take precaution and focus.” Lin Feng clasped his palms and a streak of mana flew out. In space, it converted into a purple cauldron.
The Taiji Diagram pattern appeared on his brows and golden flames spurted out of the Taiji Diagram, forming the Great Heaven Flaming Emperor.
The Great Heaven Flaming Emperor sat in space and both its hands were placed in front of its stomach. The purple cauldron flew up and landed in the hands of the Great Heaven Flaming Emperor.
Lin Feng tapped his finger and a huge amount of blue blood fluid landed in the purple cauldron.
It was all pure Kun Peng blood. The blood was also extremely cultivated, containing a tremendous force. It was not comparable to the Kun Peng blood that the Brilliant Lunar Grandmaster possessed. On the other hand, it was the precious blood that Lin Feng obtained from the Kun Peng remains.
It was from a demon that had formed the Undying Demon Soul Third Level.
The blue blood essence entered the purple cauldron and caused a huge boom. A light figure half-floated up. The sunken part was like a fish while the floating part was like a roc.
As Lin Feng waved his hands, another streak of golden blood essence was injected into the purple cauldron. It was the Blood of Panlong that he obtained during the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai.
Besides the Blood of Panlong, Lin Feng also placed the Remains of the Thunder Dragon and the Talons of the Feilian King within. Suddenly, lightning struck, causing chaos.
“Tianhao!” Lin Feng shouted. Shi Tianhao replied, “Yes, Master!” He flew up and drew an arc before jumping into the purple cauldron.
The Kun Peng blood cleansed Shi Tianhao’s body under the chaos caused by the lightning. It even cleansed his powers and his soul.
The Nine-Holed Aurous Core spat and swallowed huge amounts of spiritual energy. The Kun Peng blood was also guided into it.
Lin Feng opened his palms and the Gengjin Flowing Water Rock, Heavenly Cinnabar and the Sun Essence Stone floated above it. They were all thrown into the purple cauldron too.
These magic treasures were combined into the Kun Peng blood. They were slowly converted into soul essence and were injected into Shi Tianhao’s body along with the Kun Peng blood.
Lin Feng retrieved the Heavens-Patching Vine and placed a section of it into the purple cauldron. Under the nourishment of the Kun Peng blood, this section of Heavens-Patching Vine lengthened quickly. The bottom part of the vine wrapped around Shi Tianhao’s body.
The vine slowly lost its original appearance and converted into a green optical tape. The spiritual power within it was also being absorbed into Shi Tianhao’s body.
These spiritual powers cultivated the Gengjin Flowing Water Rock and the other treasures. They also slowly mend the holes on the Nine-Holed Aurous Core.
Regardless of Lin Feng of Shi Tianhao, they were observing the process carefully.
Their goal was not to fully enclose the holes on Shi Tianhao’s Aurous core. In that way, even if they succeeded, Shi Tianhao’s Aurous Core would become average. Although it was still a top-grade purple pill, it was a downgrade from before.
The both of them wanted to conquer the Tribulations of the Yin Wind and conserve the uniqueness of Shi Tianhao’s Aurous Core.
That was why they spent a lot of effort, otherwise a small part of the Heavens-Patching Vine would be sufficient.
Lin Feng had been planning since ages ago to enable his disciple’s Aurous Core to undergo a metamorphosis again. Besides solving the problem, he wanted Xiao Budian to rise to an even higher level.
Facing the problem should not be about going about it, nor was it about taking a step backwards. He had to think of a way to go ahead of it.
As the spiritual powers of the Heavens-Patching Vine started to take effect and the Kun Peng blood became more effective, Lin Feng retrieved the nine lotus seeds of the Geocentric Fire Lotus as well as the Nine-Circled Ice Orchid. These two items were the items he won from Cao Wei during the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai.
Lin Feng’s goal was very obvious. He wanted these items for today.
Besides that, there was another secret treasure he got from the Secret Manual of Kun Peng. It was the Yin-Yang Defying Nine Spirit Treasure Jade. These items were also sent into the purple cauldron by Lin Feng.
The boundless spiritual energy surged. Under Lin Feng’s guidance, Shi Tianhao infused all the spiritual power into his body carefully. After infusing them into his body, they converted into nine streaks of rainbow radiance, which entered the nine holes of his Aurous Core.
