Chapter 505: Triggering Nerves Everywhere
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
“If you remain with the Celestial Sect of Wonders and do your job properly while remaining loyal, achieving the Undying Demon Soul will be within the both of your reaches.”
Lin Feng’s last sentence allowed the eagle king and the whale king to drop their guard.
After freeing themselves from Lin Feng’s restraint and entering Mount Yujing, the two demons felt the abundance of spiritual energy and realized that Lin Feng was not lying. This place was a much better cultivation environment than the North Polar Sea.
If they could receive Lin Feng’s guidance, then their future cultivation path would be smoother.
Lin Feng flashed the Yellow Dragon scales and revealed Jieyu’s rewards intentionally, which made the eagle king and whale king more submissive towards him.
As Lin Feng used both the soft and hard method, the two demons submitted to Lin Feng after a long internal conflict within their hearts, “I am willing to submit to the Celestial Sect of Wonders. I will remain loyal and hope Master Lin will guide me.”
Lin Feng smiled and placed restrictions on both their Demon Souls. He will not restrict them from displaying their prowess, but if he wanted, he could kill both of them instantly.
Lin Feng called the eagle king forward, “You have cultivated as a bird demon, thus you can fly faster. You shall send Zhu Yi for his examination.”
The eagle king looked at Lin Feng and replied swiftly, “Noted Master, I will do my best to escort you disciple.”
He continued with, “I will listen to all of Comrade Zhu’s instructions along the way. Please rest assured, Master Lin.”
“That will be great.” Lin Feng nodded his head. “If you do your best, I will not ill-treat you.”
Lin Feng turned his head to look at the whale king, “Although I have many fancy stone houses for you to stay here, I believe that you are naturally attracted to the water. I scared you may not get used to it here, but there’s no need to worry.”
He clasped his palms and boundless Purple Clouds surfaced in mid-sky. The space outside of Mount Yujing stopped moving and converted into a puddle of light.
As the whale king looked closer, that puddle of light did not seem big, but it resembled a pond.
But in truth, it was actually space that was repressed. From the outside, it did not look huge. But internally it was as vast as an ocean. There were almost no boundaries that could be glimpsed.
The whale king thanked Lin Feng hurriedly, “Thank you Master Lin for your generosity.”
Lin Feng laughed, “Go and set up your new house.” The whale king flew up and landed inside the puddle of light. As he flipped his body, he had already turned into a huge whale. As he floated on the water surface, he was like a plot of land.
As he entered the water, he was surprised to find out that the temperature of the water was very low. Others would find it freezing but he felt comfortable. It was similar to the North Polar Sea environment that he was very used to.
“This is Master Lin doing what he didn’t have to…” As he thought till here, the whale king screamed, “Yes!”
The eagle king was green with envy. Lin Feng looked at him, “Go and prepare. In the next few days, you will embark on your journey.”
“Yes Master.” The eagle king listened to Lin Feng’s instructions.
A few days later, Zhu Yi was prepared to go. Lin Feng pulled him one side. This demon converted into a huge golden eagle with nine claws below his belly at the peak of Mount Yujing.
Zhu Yi already knew that he was a chauffeur that Lin Feng had prepared specially for him and revealed a smile on his face, “Thank you Master.”
Lin Feng passed the restrictions he placed on the eagle king to Zhu Yi, allowing him to control the eagle king more conveniently. After that, he extended his fingers and tapped Zhu Yi’s eyebrows. Zhu Yi sensed a miraculous aura buried within his consciousness.
The presence of this aura did not affect Zhu Yi’s cultivation and rhythm when he summoned his powers. Although Zhu Yi could clearly feel its presence, it did not affect any of Zhu Yi’s actions.
Lin Feng said, “That is a physical spell body of mine. It is buried within your soul. It is for your protection, in case anything happens. Normally, it will not affect you or hinder you. But if you are under threat, it will display its powers.”
Zhu Yi nodded his head, “I understand, thank you Master.”
Lin Feng was not worried that Zhu Yi would become relaxed with his physical spell body as a protection. Since Zhu Yi was a resilient person, even if he faced danger, he would think of using his powers first to overcome the problem. He would not rely on Lin Feng’s protective talisman to save him.
Furthermore, Lin Feng fully believed that Zhu Yi was a destined individual and thus he was very tough. Being placed on the brink of death was just an event in his glorious path of destiny. He was fully capable of turning danger into fortune.
But there was nothing certain in the world. Thus, Lin Feng still prepared a physical spell body for Zhu Yi.
Zhu Yi ascended onto the back of the eagle king. He turned his body to look at the other side. Over there were two of his disciples, Xu Yunsheng and Ying Luozha. Besides them, there was also another lady. It was Wang Lin’s disciple, Li Xingfei.
The three of them wished Zhu Yi well on his travels, “Have a safe trip, Master.””Bon voyage.”
Zhu Yi nodded his head, “When I’m not here, take care of your own cultivations. Don’t slack off. When I return, I will test all of you.”
The three of them acknowledged what he said. Zhu Yi followed with, “Your cultivations are still low. When your cultivations are higher, I will bring all of you out for practice.”
After instructing Xu Yunsheng and the rest, Zhu Yi bid goodbye to Lin Feng once again, “Master, I will be on my way.”
Lin Feng nodded his head with a smile. Zhu Yi tapped the eagle king below him and the eagle king flew up. Under Lin Feng’s permission, the eagle king broke through space and left Mount Yujing, entering the Grand Celestial World.
As the eagle king flapped his wing, he had already entered void space and flew towards Tianjing.
Xu Yunsheng, Ying Luozha and Li Xingfei watched as Zhu Yi left. After that, they looked at Lin Feng secretly. Besides Ying Luozha, the other two were a little restrained.
In fact, even the fearless Ying Luozha was anxious as he got close to Lin Feng.
Lin Feng did not notice the three of them. He looked in the direction of Zhu Yi and thought, “He will be causing quite a commotion as he goes to Tianjing.”
With the eagle king as a chauffeur, Zhu Yi quickly arrived in the boundaries of the Great Zhou Empire. And the first moment he arrived, many great powers received news of it.
At this point in time, not only Lin Feng, the movements of the important characters in the Celestial Sect of Wonders triggered the nerves of everyone.
Liang Pan was the first to receive news of his arrival. He sat on his royal seat in the royal palace and looked at the bookshelf in front of him, but did not speak.
Mei Wulang also remained where he was below him, without speaking too.
Liang Pan pondered for a moment before opening his mouth, “Wulang, tell Hongwu that the time is not ripe yet.”
Mei Wuliang replied politely, “Yes, your Majesty.” He hesitated for a while and looked towards Liang Pan, “Your Majesty, regarding Zhu Yi, do I teach him what to do?”
Liang Pan laughed, “There’s no need to. He is clever too. I believe that he knows what he can do and what he can’t do.”
He sighed, “It’s a pity. He was supposed to be part of the Great Zhou Empire. Luckily, he is not with the Great Void Sect.”
After Mei Wulang excused himself, only Liang Pan was left in the royal palace pavilion. He sighed again, “Maybe it’s not as bad as being controlled by the Great Void Sect…”
After receiving word of what Liang Pan said from Mei Wulang, Zhu Hongwu sat on his seat in his residence and pondered.
At a side seat near him, there was a lady dressed in a light green feather coat with golden threads. On her hair, there was a golden peacock hairpin. She looked like 30+ to 40 years old and she behaved in an elegant manner.
“Hongwu, that woman’s son is coming back soon.” This woman was the first wife of Zhu Hongwu, Lady Shao. She did not look to be a cultivator and was just a normal lady. But she was the first wife of Zhu Hongwu.
“The other time, he rushed here and rushed off, not causing any commotion. But this time, he is really back.” Lady Shao said, “I heard that his cultivation cannot be stopped by anyone except you in this residence.”
Lady Shao said, “I fear that he is back for a serious matter. Rumors say that he is very close to the Fourth Prince.”
Zhu Hongwu opened his mouth, “The Crown Prince is the rightful successor. I am very clear that the Fourth Prince has no chance. Anyone who tries to interfere will not have a good ending.”
“If Zhu Yi tries to step in, then he is finding trouble.” Zhu Hongwu said, “Don’t worry, he can’t cause much problems. I know that.”
Lady Shao’s lips moved and she squeezed a sentence out, “I heard that his master…”
Zhu Hongwu lifted his hand to interrupt her, “Regardless whether it is the Great Zhou or the other party, it is still not time to cause a big hoo-ha. When it happens, the unimportant characters will fade off naturally.”
“When that happens, I will deal with him myself. Retreat, as I am going to begin my cultivation.”
Lady Shao nodded her head, “All these years, you have been very confident. There have been no slip-ups either. Since you say so, I will not disturb you further. Cultivate peacefully.”
She walked out of the pavilion and a sinister look flashed across her face, “In the past, whenever Hongwu decides on something, I can always count on it. But now, I don’t feel right. I feel like something is going to come up.”
Zhu Yi went to Tianjing for the scholarly examination and triggered the nerves of not just one or two people. At this point, within Tianjing, there were two people walking along the streets. Although they did not seem to be doing anything, they were actually conversing through their powers.
One of them was a middle-aged gentleman and the other one was a charming youth. They were an Aurous Core Stage strategist under Liang Gan and Chu Yang respectively.
“Zhu Yi rushed here and off the other time. We did not have the chance to interact more with him. Now that he is here for the examination, this is a good opportunity.” The middle-aged gentleman said to Chu Yang. But Chu Yang seemed to be distracted.
As Chu Yang walked, he turned to look in a diagonal direction behind him. “Over there, why do I have an ominous feeling about something over there?”
The direction in which he was looking at was the location of the residence of Chen Yu, the assistant of the Great Zhou Crown Prince.
