Chapter 504: Submit through Violence
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Not only was Tao Yaoyao defeated by Xiao Yan in one stroke, the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster had also lost to Lin Feng. Lin Feng did not even use any spell. He only used his Immortal Soul to swallow the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster. The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster could not free himself and thus could only submit in defeat.
But to both the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster and Tao Yaoyao, if they did not die in battle, then they were not really disadvantage. On the other hand, they fulfilled their wishes.
These battles also allowed them to recognize the strengths of the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
After a short interaction with Lin Feng, both parties bade goodbye. The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster brought Tao Yaoyao back to Xingyun Peak and started to plan again. He borrowed the Heavens-Patching Vine to mend the broken Aurous Core of Tao Yaoyao.
When they left Mount Yujing and returned to the Grand Celestial World, Tao Yaoyao looked at the sky and sighed, “The Celestial Sect of Wonders is indeed not ordinary. Xiao Yan is also worthy as Lin Feng’s most senior disciple.”
She turned her head to look at the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster, “Master, although Xiao Yan and I only engaged in one stroke and I also did not challenge Shi Tianhao, Zhu Yi and the rest, I somehow feel that Xiao Yan is the strongest among them all.”
As she conversed with the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster, Tao Yaoyao revealed her thoughts and what she really felt.
The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster replied, “If he can win in one stroke, then your words might be true.”
“As he challenged you, he used his weakness to tackle your strength. He did not show the strongest side of his yet. Although he is in the Advanced Stage of the Aurous Core Stage, if he did combine the Primordial Fires in his body, even a Nascent Soul Stage Elder with his Cosmic Form may not defeat him.”
Tao Yaoyao nodded her head, “I heard Junior Zhao said before that on Xingyun Peak, he actually combined the Grand Sun Primordial Fire and Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire perfectly. Its powers were extremely strong. Now that I heard that his cultivation has further increased, the offensive power of his Primordial Fires should be even stronger.”
“However…” Tao Yaoyao was a little suspicious, “…It’s not that I question you, my Master. If you say that he can defeat a Nascent Soul Stage Elder, I believe that. But if an elder in the Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage revealed his Cosmic Form, then his powers will be much higher than an elder in the Intermediate Stage. Can he win then too?”
The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster said, “Although he did not reveal, there is a high possibility that the number of Primordial Fires he possesses is not only 2.”
Tao Yaoyao was shocked. She naturally knew that if Xiao Yan had blended 3 different Primordial Fires perfectly, the power increase would be exponential.
The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster looked at her and said, “Of course, not only Xiao Yan, the cultivations of the entire Celestial Sect of Wonders are unknown. As long as we don’t see it, there may be huge changes every day. For example, Wang Lin is one of them.”
Tao Yaoyao opened her mouth but did not let out any noise. She revealed a bitter smile on her face.
Who would have thought Wang Lin, who was only in the Beginner Stage of the Foundation Establishment Stage during the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai, had already formed the Aurous Core successfully after just a few months later.
Tao Yaoyao even recalled that the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster was shocked as he heard this news.
If the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster already acted in this way, then it would be even more surprising for Tao Yaoyao and the rest. Once the news spread, the Sword of Radiance disciples that participated in the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai were all shocked.
“Therefore, if Shi Tianhao and Zhu Yi’s powers did increase, it is expected. As compared to Xiao Yan, we don’t know who’s the strongest and weakest.” The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster remained indifferent. “But in terms of explosive power, I rate Xiao Yan the highest.”
In this way, Xiao Yan had the highest chance of winning in one stroke.
After a few moments, Tao Yaoyao regained her awareness and she laughed, “The Celestial Sect of Wonders is indeed made up of freaks.”
She laughed as she looked at the Supreme Radiance Swordmaster. The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster also looked back and her. Tao Yaoyao laughed, “I will work hard and become part of the freaks. If I don’t succeed, please don’t blame me, Master.”
For someone as competitive as Tao Yaoyao to say something like this, she seemed to have no backbone. But her eyes were filled with an ambition, without any hint of discomfort.
The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster revealed a smile on his face and looked at her, nodding, “Very good.”
The space in front of him developed a crack and he brought Tao Yaoyao into void space with him, “Return to the mountain first. Mend your Aurous Core. It has been delayed for too long.”
Lin Feng watched as the both of them leave, before he turned to look at Xiao Yan, laughing, “The Supreme Radiance Swordmaster seems to know about your 3rd Primordial Fire.”
Xiao Yan laughed, “When I started, I didn’t repress it.”
Lin Feng saw the flames flashing in his eyes and knew immediately that Xiao Yan was actually restraining himself during the fight.
“Oh you.” Lin Feng laughed while patting Xiao Yan. Xiao Yan laughed but did not deny what Lin Feng saw.
Lin Feng sent him back to the Celestial Golden Pavilion, “Rascal, if you have the energy, work the elixir cauldron. Otherwise, go and cultivate.”
In the future, Mount Yujing regained peace again. Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the rest were cultivating diligently, while also teaching their own disciples.
When it reached autumn, Zhu Yi went to the Great Zhou Empire for his examination.
Lin Feng thought in his heart, “I don’t have to send him specially this time. But, I should prepare transport for him.”
Ever since Jieyu cultivated the Yellow Dragon bones, he started to retreat. Whereas the Kui Cow King and the Feilian King were both at the Wasteland Valley setting up the Wind and Thunder Parturition Talisman Formation, helping Shi Tianhao to cultivate. Thus, they were unavailable too.
“Luckily, I prepared early.” Lin Feng laughed and retrieved a ball of Purple Clouds. The ball converted into a small world. Inside the small world, the entire place was jade-green and blue in color. The top of it were the blue skies and the bottom of it was the sea.
In the skies, there was a huge golden eagle flying. There were 9 sharp claws under its belly and its eagle eyes were filled with ferocity.
Whereas in the deep sea below, there was a movement of a figure. As the figure moved, it became clearer and surfaced on the water. It was extremely huge, as if it was a small plot of land. But it was actually a huge whale.
They were the helpers that the Brilliant Lunar Grandmaster found to cause trouble when Lin Feng was finding the Secret Manual of Kun Peng. They were a nine-clawed eagle king and a northern sea whale king. They were demons that had reached the Advanced Stage of the Demon Lord realm. They dominated in the region of the North Polar Sea. As they irritated Lin Feng along with the Brilliant Lunar Grandmaster, they were captured.
After they were captured by Lin Feng, they were trapped in a Celestial Small World. They were also detoxed to prevent them from causing trouble again.
When the previous battles were broadcasted, Lin Feng did not forget the both of them. When they realized Lin Feng’s true abilities, they did not dare to cause trouble anymore.
But as they were trapped by Lin Feng, they lost their freedom. They were very anxious and did not know their fate from then on.
Although they were not comparable to a Demonic Grand Sage, they were still treasures that could be used. Although Lin Feng did not have to use them, his disciples could find them useful.
At this point, the two demons heard Lin Feng’s voice, “Come out, the both of you.”
The Purple Clouds small world dissipated gradually. The nine-clawed eagle king and the northern sea whale king slowly converted into their human forms. Their demonic forms were too huge.
As the eagle king converted into a human form, his size was very burly. He grew a nose like an eagle hook. Beside him was a buff man that was taller than 10 feet. It was the human form of the northern sea whale king.
The two demons greeted Lin Feng, “Please forgive us for the discourtesy we had shown you earlier.” The two of them were uncomfortable as they looked at Lin Feng anxiously. They were waiting for Lin Feng’s punishment.
Lin Feng remained indifferent. He tapped his finger and 2 streaks of purple light were shot into the eyes of the eagle king and the whale king. The lights entered their supernatural awareness and were like 2 strings that wrapped around their Demon Souls’ neck.
The eagle king and whale king wanted to resist subconsciously. But as the strings tightened, the two of their Demon Souls could not breathe.
Lin Feng said, “The two of you have offended me. You will not have a happy ending. But today, I will give the both of you a chance. If you commit to the Celestial Sect of Wonders, I can forgive your past sins.”
“I will give the both of you the chance to atone for your sins now. My disciple, Zhu Yi, is going to the Great Zhou Empire capital, Tianjing. One of you will send him there.”
The two demons turned ghastly. Was Lin Feng finding a chauffeur for Zhu Yi?
The demons were normally not domesticated. Regardless whether it was the eagle king or the whale king, they were used to being dominant in the North Polar Sea. Although they had been captured by Lin Feng for a long time and their sense of dominance had been lost to a significant extent, they were still unwilling to submit to Lin Feng, what more being a chauffeur for his disciple.
The whale king did not speak while the eagle king’s eyes shifted up and down, as he was thinking of an idea, “I can submit first, then take the chance to escape.”
“But I’m not sure what cultivation realm his disciple is in, should I kill him along the way? Better not to, trouble might visit me some other day.”
Lin Feng looked at the eagle king and a chill travelled down the spine of the eagle king. In the next moment, Lin Feng tightened the string on his Demon Soul, almost tearing it apart into half.
The eagle king knelt in pain and begged for forgiveness. Lin Feng’s voice resonated, “Although you have not learnt from your mistakes and want to escape, on account of your last-minute guilt, I will forgive you once more. But you can escape death but not punishment. Take this as a lesson.”
The purple string burnt and the golden flames burned the Demon Soul of the eagle king. The eagle king was tortured until he was barely breathing. He no longer had the thought of escaping.
Even the whale king was shocked. He shivered and started to soften his stance.
The stick was dished out, but the carrot was still there. Lin Feng said, “If you commit to the Celestial Sect of Wonders and perform your role properly, I will not ill-treat you. You will have your own private space and can also cultivate on my mountain. The spiritual energy here is far more than the North Polar Sea.”
“Besides this, if you complete your task, you will have further rewards. After all I have said, the both of you will decide for yourselves what you want.”
