Chapter 511: Audacious
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
In this day and age, the Yu Clan or the Shi Clan were not Lin Feng’s match if they operated alone.
In a cruder way, even if they banded together, they did not even trouble Lin Feng.
As to why they were spared, it was because Lin Feng did not want to be used by the Great Qin Empire and he also wanted to give face to the Great Void Sect.
Of course, the most important reason was that even if Lin Feng did not bother with them, Shi Tianhao would still clash with them in the future.
That was why the sudden movements of the Yu Clan and Shi Clan left Lin Feng curious, “What are these two clans thinking of?”
As he was thinking, Lin Feng developed an idea in his mind. He used the mana that he left on Xiao Yan’s body to discover that Xiao Yan was actually interfered by someone on his travels.
Between the Divine Lands and the Barren Expanses, the powers of the boundaries were very strong. Even an Immortal Soul Stage Elder could do nothing to break through void space.
For example, while the Golden Crow Grand Sage’s receiving method as well as the ancient Kun Peng’s blood sacrificial ritual could allow for the travel between two worlds, the price to pay was also very huge. It was only used when necessary.
Thus, when Xiao Yan and the rest left Mount Yujing, they went all the way south. Under Fei Ye’s guidance, they travelled through void space at a rapid speed towards the south of the Divine Lands. There was the boundary crack that connected to the Barren Expanses over there.
That was the designated tunnel that allowed for humans and demons to move between worlds. That was also the place where humans and demons made the first forms of contact. Although there had not been any outburst of wars lately, there were minor conflicts that happened. There were instances of human cultivators breaching the Barren Expanses to hunt and kill demons. At the same time, there were powerful demons that came to the Divine Lands to wreak havoc.
As Fei Ye and Black Jade came to the Divine Lands, they passed through that tunnel too.
There was a queue of people that were rushing towards the boundary crack. Just as they left the territory of Mount Kunlun, there was a tremendous vibration of mana in space suddenly.
Fei Ye, Xiao Yan and Black Jade raised their brows. They saw a black light flashing in front and engulfed space as it surged towards them.
In that black light, there was a frightening roar resonating from it. It was as if there were thousands of troops shouting and groaning.
Besides the smell of blood that reminded of a war, there was an immense wave of repression that surged. It was as if it came from the Heavens.
As these two combined, they resembled an indestructible Emperor that descended from the skies. That Emperor seemed to lead his loyal and passionate troops into battle, and they appeared before Xiao Yan and the rest.
This black light engulfed the entire place and threatened to trap Xiao Yan and the rest within. Fei Ye’s expression was calm. As he summoned his powers, he brought Xiao Yan, Black Jade and Lin Tong away from the black light.
Who knew that the black light surfaced a dim golden human figure. It was entirely formed from the light figure’s mana. It wore a Panlong Golden Armor and wore a golden helmet. It had a royal disposition, as if an Emperor had arrived.
As the golden figure appeared, the black light expanded and trapped Fei Ye, Xiao Yan and the rest within.
“Magic treasure in the metaplasia realm?” Fei Ye raised his brows and stared at the original soul of the magic treasure that had formed its figure. “It’s a pity that the person who formed this is not in the Immortal Soul Stage. Why did you let him cultivate you?”
That dim golden human figure spoke and its voice resonated. It sounded very mighty, “You don’t have to know this, Demon Phoenix.”
Fei Ye continued to look calm and nodded his head, “I don’t have to know indeed. It’s just a waste of my time.”
As he said, his demonic powers surged. As he flapped his wings, the squall he initiated seemed to cut the skies and ran riot within the black light.
The original soul did not panic. It summoned the black light, causing it to flip and turn, as if it was undergoing several transformations. Amidst the huge roars, Fei Ye’s momentum was dissipated. The astonishing killing intent caused him to be further worried.
It was as if there were many passionate fighters had gathered together, developing a disturbing and powerful mind concept, which was tough but gentle.
It was ferocious and passionate. The troops were only loyal to its Emperor. Wherever and whoever the Emperor pointed to, they would attack that particular place or person without hesitation. They would not stop till death.
“Interesting.” Lin Feng was curious as he watched all of this from Xiao Yan’s body. Fei Ye had formed the Undying Demon Soul already. Although he was not competitive by nature, his demonic powers were outstanding among those of the same realm. He even possessed the Pure Yang Primordial Fire that was native to the Demon Phoenix tribe, further strengthening his powers.
More importantly, besides their abilities, Fei Ye and Black Jade had the Demon Phoenix tribe backing them.
The other party knew Fei Ye and Black Jade’s identities, but he still dared to stop them. This confidence, or rather foolishness, was something to be applauded.
But this person’s cultivation seemed to be unexpectedly good. Lin Feng could tell that the owner of this magic treasure had not formed the Immortal Soul.
Before he formed the Immortal Soul, he already had a magic treasure in the metaplasia realm. This was a rare situation.
Previously, Pang Jie was in the Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage, but his powers were strong enough, status was high enough and his background was deep enough. Even so, he only possessed the Six Appearances Sword that was in the gestation realm.
Although the Six Appearance Sword had reached the peak of the gestation realm and its powers were extraordinary, the original soul was still unable to form its own entity.
Right now, the person who had stopped Fei Ye, Xiao Yan and the rest had a magic treasure in the metaplasia realm although he had not formed the Immortal Soul. This must only signify that his background was not simple. It was not possible for him to cultivate it. Either it was given to him from someone, or that he had inherited it.
Fei Ye further drummed up his powers and attacked even more ferociously. Although his opponent had the magic treasure, he could not fully summon the powers without the virtual entity. As he faced Fei Ye, his momentum was slightly dropping.
But this magic treasure was special. With its own powers, it could match up to Fei Ye.
In the black light, the real appearance of the magic treasure was revealed. It was huge black flag and there was a huge “Emperor” word sewn on it. It was swaying and looked very impressive.
Fei Ye and Black Jade rarely left the Parasol Tree Forest and their understandings of the outside world were also very limited. Their grasp of news within the Barren Expanses were still rather good, but they knew little about the Divine Lands.
On the other hand, ever since Xiao Yan resumed the role within the Celestial Sect of Wonders as the one who communicated with the outside world, he developed a deep understanding of the Divine Lands.
As he looked at the flag, he raised his brows, “Immortal Royal Flag?”
For someone who had not formed the Immortal Soul but had such a magic treasure, Xiao Yan deduced his identity immediately.
It was the most powerful youth in the Great Zhou Empire, the Marquis of Jinghuan.
He was the leading, rising talent of the Great Zhou Empire. He contributed a lot to the expansion of the Great Zhou Empire, thus he was given the title as a Marquis at his age. This attracted a lot of attention.
He had reached the Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage at his age and was only a step away from the Immortal Soul Stage. With his talent, he became very reputable in the Grand Celestial World. In terms of cultivation, even Liang Yuan was beneath him.
It was widely recognized that everyone was ordinary in front of him.
After he rose through the ranks, the Great Qin Empire was repressed by the Great Zhou Empire in the junior ranks because of him. It was only when Shi Tianyi appeared was there someone to resist the Marquis of Jinghuan.
What was so depressing for others was that the Marquis of Jinghuan had great fortune, luck and fate apart from his talents.
Before he achieved the Immortal Soul, he had already obtained the Immortal Royal Flag. Besides this, he had an array of other magic treasures. Beneath him, he had many powerful cultivators following him.
It’s not that he had never experienced any difficulties. But it’s that after every difficulty he faced, he was able to rise again rapidly. He would even become more powerful. Not only did his cultivation increase, he obtained many more magic treasures too.
But besides his cultivation talents, there was something very eye-catching about him. He liked all types of beauties in the world.
Whether they were human or demons, he did not let them off.
To find the place with the most beauties, it was not Liang Pan’s royal palace or Shi Yu’s royal place, but it was the private residence of the Marquis of Jinghuan.
Xiao Yan thought of everything he knew and told them to Fei Ye and Black Jade. Both of them were enraged at this point.
As expected, the spirit of the Immortal Royal Flag spoke, “The Marquis of Jinghuan have always heard that the females of the Demon Phoenix tribe are outstanding. He had always wanted to woo them, but he never had the time to visit the Parasol Tree Forest in the Barren Expanses.”
“He heard that there was a female Demon Phoenix that came to the Divine Lands, thus he intends to chase her.”
Regardless whether it was Lin Feng or Xiao Yan, they pursed their lips as they heard that.
He said it very nicely. This was definitely not chasing, but a forceful request of love.
Lin Feng was amused, “What a lad. He dared to stop a Demon Phoenix. Is this audacity, or absolute self-confidence?”
The powers of the Demon Phoenix tribe were widely recognized. But this Marquis of Jinghuan dared to stop them and wanted Black Jade to join his harem.
He must really not care about anything or consider the consequences. His madness had breached the limits and it was bordering on insanity.
He did not seem to consider that the Demon Phoenix tribe had many powerful demons. There were not only one of them who had formed the Undying Demon Soul Third Level. In addition, they had the Divine Parasol Trees as their close comrades.
To enrage the Demon Phoenix tribe and the Divine Parasol Tree tribe was something that the entire Great Zhou Empire had to contend with. If both parties fought, there was a possibility of a second war between the two worlds.
But this Marquis of Jinghuan still did it anyway. And he did it so openly and lawlessly.
Even Fei Ye and Black Jade who were normally very refined were now enraged. Fei Ye said coldly, “You ignorant fool, your insanity will destroy you.”
“I don’t think so. In this world, there is only space for the capable people. This goes the same for beauties.
At this point, the Immortal Royal Flag surfaced an appearance of a young man. He wore a purplish-golden robe and wore a crown. There was a yellow belt around his waist, something of royal descent. It was obvious that it was given by the Emperor, otherwise it would be a heinous crime for a Marquis to wear it.
His body was very proportionate and he had short hair. He looked charming and had a high forehead. On both sides of his temple, they were surrounded by dim golden blood flow, as it if they were the real Sun.
