Chapter 500: Sword of Radiance Sect Visits
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
As they stayed in the Forest Abode and looked at the body of Mount Yujing from afar, even Wang Lin’s parents felt like they were in another world.
A young lady in purple came beside them and offered them tea. She smiled, “This is the spiritual tea produced by the medicine valley on the mountain. It helps to boost the soul and lengthen one’s longevity. Please enjoy it.”
Wang Lin’s parents were grateful. They had once seen this seemingly weak young lady in action.
This lady was Li Xingfei. She had been accepted into the Celestial Sect of Wonders for around 1 year. Her Qi Cultivation was progressing too. Before she became a disciple, she was no ordinary lady either. After becoming a disciple, she had been residing on Mount Yujing. As the spiritual energy developed her, her appearance and disposition became more mature. No one dared to underestimate her.
Li Xingfei smiled, “Master is not around. If there’s anything, I will be here to help. Just tell me what you need.”
Wang Lin’s parents hesitated before asking, “Er, young lady, sorry to ask so suddenly, but what stage has our son Wang Lin reached through all his cultivation?”
Li Xingfei answered politely, “As his disciple, I don’t dare to guess Master’s cultivation. But I am sure Master has already formed the Aurous Core. His longevity has reached a thousand years. Normally, he can travel through space and summon thunder and fire easily.”
Wang Lin’s parents were shocked.
Wang Lin had never shown off his cultivation in front of his parents. When he was at home, he enjoyed family time. Furthermore, he also tried to figure out the concept of simplicity. Thus, when he returned back to his hometown, he gave the impression as an ordinary person.
If it not were for the privileged treatment by the Great Qin Empire, Wang Lin’s family would find it difficult to believe that his cultivation was so successful.
In the previous battle, his level was much superior than a normal person. He could walk on rocks and fly above the ground, causing destruction.
To Wang Lin and the rest, many things could happen in an instant. But to an ordinary person, it was just a momentary show of skills. Before Wang Lin’s family could react, they were already dragged toward the spatial crack.
After that, they were bottled in a talisman by Yang Qing. They did not understand whatever was happening outside. They could only wait anxiously. When they saw the light again, they were already on Mount Yujing.
Li Xingfei sat with them for a while. After that, she left. She was a very polite individual. Even when she left the house, she did not display her skills. Only after leaving the entire place totally did she display her skills and flew away quickly.
There were many people from the Wang Family who were shocked as they saw her. They realized that she was Wang Lin’s disciple.
In the house, Wang Lin’s mother sighed, “For such a beautiful girl, I thought that maybe we can matchmake her with Wang Lin. But who knew that things are actually in this way!”
Opposite her, Wang Lin’s father patted her and said, “Now we can only hope for Wang Lin to be back soon.”
To prevent them from worrying, Yang Qing did not dare to tell them that Wang Lin was trapped in the Void Battleground. He could only say that Wang Lin was chasing the enemy and exacting revenge for those who had fallen.
Wang Lin’s mother nodded her head repeatedly, “Yes, yes, I don’t yearn for anything else but for my son to return.”
As Li Xingfei left the Wang Family’s residence, she did not return to her own. She left the Forest Abode briefly and went towards Zhu Yi’s Heavenly Temple.
Wang Lin was not on the mountain, thus Li Xingfei consulted Zhu Yi, Xiao Yan and the rest when he had questions about her cultivation. Zhu Yi and the rest were also not selfish, as they helped to address her questions.
As she turned to look at the mountain, Li Xingfei sighed lightly. She had a complex look in her eyes. After she became Wang Lin’s disciple, besides the initial guidance that he had offered her, he had always left the mountains. She had not seen him for almost half a year.
Her cultivation was not any different from those under Zhu Yi.
But the Celestial Sect of Wonders had a friendly atmosphere. Lin Feng’s 6 disciples were very cordial towards another. Although the junior disciples had they own social circles, they were still very close to one another overall. For some of the guests that stayed on the mountain, they also became friendly after interactions.
Of course, there were also exceptions.
Li Xingfei’s brows raised as she looked at someone approaching. It was someone not much older than her. That person was thin but tall. The person also looked proper and energetic.
The person looked at most 17 years old. But the person revealed a stiff expression that made him seem older.
Li Xingfei knew that he was called Li Yuanfang. He was not from the Celestial Sect of Wonders, but a guest. But she did not have a good feeling about him.
When she herself, Xu Yunsheng, Ying Luozha and the rest gathered to discuss about mantras, Li Yuanfang stumbled upon them coincidentally and heard their discussion. He did not speak but his brows were raised.
Although Li Yuanfang did not officially learn the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams, he had already established his foundation. He did receive some guidance from Lin Feng occasionally, thus he could still tell the errors of those like Li Xingfei who were below the intermediate level of the Qi Cultivation Stage.
Xiao Yan’s disciple, Fatty, noticed Li Yuanfang’s expression and questioned unhappily. Li Yuanfang remained silent for a while before revealing lapses in their discussion.
After pondering over the matter, Li Xingfei and the rest did discover what was wrong. But since it was an internal discussion, Ying Luozha and Fatty were a little uncomfortable as an outsider pinpointed things out. Although Li Yuanfang had already established his foundation, they still continued to argue with him.
They cited the classics which were a simplified version. But although they were simplified, there were many principles and truths of Taoism that matched.
Li Yuanfang learned from the River Map Grandmaster. Although what he learnt was also brilliant and expansive, it was less valuable compared to what Ying Luozha and the rest learnt.
However, after all, his cultivation was higher. His intelligence was also higher. When he was debating with Ying Luozha and the rest, he showcased a greater sophistication of the understanding of mantras. Eventually, Xu Yunsheng, Li Xingfei and the rest joined in and lost the debate.
This alarmed Zhu Yi and he came over. With a few words on the understanding of mantras, he convinced Li Yuanfang.
As Li Yuanfang thanked Zhu Yi, Li Xingfei and the rest were a little speechless. They realized that Li Xingfei was not trying to pick on them, but it was because he was acting naturally. He was not very adept at human interactions.
Li Xingfei was gentle, polite and prudent in her choice of words. Her attitude towards Li Yuanfang was one of respect, but she was distant towards him.
As she met Li Yuanfang, Li Xingfei greeted him as usual, “Comrade Li.”
Li Yuanfang saw this and stopped in his tracks. He greeted her back, “Hello.”
After bidding goodbye to her, Li Xingfei watched curiously as Li Yuanfang approached the direction of the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree on Mount Yujing, “Is Grandmaster calling for him?”
Li Xingfei’s deduction was right. Li Yuanfang was indeed finding Lin Feng.
Previously, Lin Feng had also seen him a few times. He passed on some tips on the changes of the Two Elements of Creation Formation to him. After a period of time, Lin Feng was going to test him too.
Now, he did not even need to be summoned by Lin Feng. When the time came, Li Yuanfang would report to him on his own and accept Lin Feng’s test.
Besides the Two Elements of Creation Formation, Lin Feng would also guide him on any difficulties he had with mantra.
Just as how he could tell the problem in Li Xingfei and the rest’s cultivation, Lin Feng could easily tell what his problem was.
Especially since Lin Feng had formed the Immortal Soul now. The Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtue was packed with different appearances and images. It as easy for him to tell what was the River Map Grandmaster’s line of mantras.
Lin Feng could even spark the River Map Grandmaster, not to even say Li Yuanfang. The River Map Grandmaster could understand the true meaning of the Great Tao with the guidance of Lin Feng.
Lin Feng used such a method to allow Li Yuanfang to acclimatize to the life on Mount Yujing.
But Li Yuanfang was not so easily bought over. He did not suspect Lin Feng, but he felt that he had been receiving Lin Feng’s guidance without any clear reason to, making him feel a little guilty.
Thus, when he saw Lin Feng this time, Li Yuanfang greeted him first. “Over this period of time, I am grateful for Elder Lin’s guidance. I should have left the mountain sooner, but I was greedy for elder’s formation. I have been coming again and again, which has made me feel guilty.”
“Please punish me for my guilty. I will accept any punishment.”
He was very serious and honest. He was even relaxed, as if he had removed a burden off his shoulders.
As Lin Feng saw this, he smiled and waved his hand, “You don’t have to stand on ceremony. You are a rare talent, that’s why I guided you slightly. This is a small matter for me. But for you, it’s an opportunity.”
“How you want to venture off on this cultivation path depends on you still.”
Li Yuanfang opened his mouth and wanted to speak, but nothing came out. He revealed a relaxed look on his face.
Lin Feng said, “You can think about how you want to proceed over here.”
Li Yuanfang nodded his head slightly. As Lin Feng looked at him, he had a thought in his head. A Voice-Projecting Crystal broke in his hand.
The other party on the line was the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster.
“Master Lin, my disciple, Tao Yaoyao, and I are here to visit.” The voice of the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster sounded indifferent.
As Lin Feng heard it, he replied, “The both of you are welcomed.” He sensed with his supernatural awareness and clasped his palms. A crack surfaced in space and Purple Clouds surged into the crack, transcending space and arrived at the Grand Celestial World.
At this point, on the peak of a mountain on Mount Kunlun stood two people. One of them was a middle-aged man who looked like 40 years old. His hair was dark and the hair on his temples were combed to both sides. There were two streaks of snow-white hair on both sides. His eyes revealed his might.
Behind him was a lady in white. She was beautiful and looked awe-inspiring. Although she looked very loud, she did not seem domineering. Her eyes revealed her competitive nature.
It was the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster and Tao Yaoyao.
The Purple Clouds formed a path through the spatial crack. The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster walked in front while Tao Yaoyao followed closely behind.
Through the pathway, the both of them entered Mount Yujing.
The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster squinted his eyes, as he saw a purple-robed young man greeting him, “Xiao Yan from the Celestial Sect of Wonders welcomes the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster.”
