Chapter 513: The Arch-Enemy
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Through Xiao Yan’s body, Lin Feng observed for a while. He realized the way the Marquis of Jinghuan was looking at Black Jade was as if he was looking at an item, an item that he fancied.
If it was Hong Ye, that look in his eyes would be very affectionate. When more time was spent with him, Black Jade would most definitely be captivated by him. Furthermore, she might get along well with the other women that he had.
But now the Marquis of Jinghuan had a more intense interest in ladies. But they were displayed rather flippantly. All of the beauties in the world were like items for him to collect.
He was not like Hong Ye. He was purely greedy and wanted everything good in this world to himself.
Lin Feng saw this and shook his head, “My friend, this is not appropriate. Your face attracts hate.”
“Just like Shi Tianyi, a predestined enemy for the destined individuals. He is always someone who refuses to die. Every time he rose again, he becomes even stronger. But he’s just a recyclable item, whose purpose is to be used again and again, for the experience and preparations of others.”
Lin Feng could not help but laugh, “Don’t tell me his purpose here is to be defeated? Hehe, I wonder who he was prepared for.”
As Lin Feng looked at the Marquis of Jinghuan, he was a little regrettable that he had not met him earlier.
Now that he had reached this stage, there was nothing special about the Marquis of Jinghuan anymore. Lin Feng’s own disciples were more suitable for him.
Lin Feng smiled, “The few of you are lucky. Let’s see who is the lucky one who can be his opposite. This is a gold mine. It can be unearthed many times.”
The so-called arch-enemy was someone who “sent warmth” to a true destined individual.
For a magic treasure or item, find the arch-enemy; for a special abhijna, find the arch-enemy; for boosting reputation, find the arch-enemy…
Even to find wallpapers of beauties, find the arch-enemy.
For the true destined individuals, the arch-enemy might give them a moment or two of humiliation. But in the future, they will repay them a hundred or a thousand times more. The destined individual could find anything he needs from his arch-enemy.
To use the arch-enemy as a stepping stone was much easier than working one’s way up based on his effort.
Therefore, everyone should cherish and love their arch-enemy. They allowed one to speed up their progress.
The Marquis of Jinghuan naturally did not know, but he had become Lin Feng’s disciples’”cash cow” in Lin Feng’s heart.
Right now, the Marquis of Jinghuan was holding a dagger in his own. His disposition was different. Although he had not formed the Immortal Soul and the powers of the dagger were not fully unleashed, it was still very frightening.
Wherever the dagger pointed to, the enemy would retreat. Its royal stature was revealed, and brought about a sense of judgment that seemed to impact the world.
All its enemies could only submit obediently.
Above the Marquis of Jinghuan’s head, a clear light surged. A streak of vigorous aura shot upwards into the Heavens like smoke, filled with the determination of a physical martial arts cultivator.
In the smoke, the ferocious aura of countless troops seemed to surface, as if their resilience had supplemented the smoke, allowing it to rise vigorously.
In the next moment, the smoke was retracted into the body of the Marquis of Jinghuan. In the eyes of the Marquis of Jinghuan, there was a subtle flashing of golden and blood light. The dagger in his hand was slashed and void space was crushed suddenly. A streak of golden light went flying towards Fei Ye.
If it was a bright radiance, Fei Ye wouldn’t even bother. But this thin streak of light caused him to raise his brows and he did not allow it to touch his body.
The Marquis of Jinghuan summoned the Martial Way in his body to the maximum and guided his Ancient Royal Dagger. Although he could not fully unleash the power of the magic treasure, he had enough power to harm an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator.
In an instant, the Marquis of Jinghuan and the God-Slayer Puppet combined to attack Fei Ye. They were equally strong.
Strictly speaking, besides the Immortal Royal Flag and Ancient Royal Dagger, this God-Slayer Puppet was also a powerful weapon that was not inferior to the magic treasures.
In the Marquis of Jinghuan’s family, there were many Immortal Soul Stage Elders that did not even possess the magic treasures he had. These magic treasures allowed him to become one of the few Nascent Soul Stage cultivators in the Advanced Stage that could defeat an Immortal Soul Stage Elder.
Lin Feng watched his battle with Fei Ye and nodded his head, “The smoke that appeared was the Cosmic Form that he cultivated. It’s just that the Cosmic Form of a physical martial arts cultivator was not revealed to battle an opponent, but it was combined with the flesh. From there, the flesh and soul were strengthened.
Fei Ye was surrounded by the Marquis of Jinghuan and the God-Slayer Puppet. He was calm, “There’s not only me in the Demon Phoenix tribe.”
“Furthermore, even if there’s only me, I will not allow you to wreak such havoc.”
He raised his head and let out a clear whistle. His body turned into a ball of golden light gradually. In the golden light, a magical bird appeared. It had the head of a chicken, jaw of a sparrow, neck of a snake, back of a turtle and tail of a fish. In both its eyes, there were white flames flashing.
It was Fei Ye’s real appearance, as he converted into a crimson red Demon Phoenix. His size was not huge and he was only 6 foot tall. But as his demonic powers spread, he forced the Marquis of Jinghuan and his God-Slayer Puppet back.
The white Pure Yang Primordial Fire was spurted out and even space was razed. The internal world of the Immortal Royal Flag became unstable.
The Marquis of Jinghuan laughed, “The Demon Phoenix possesses the Pure Yang Primordial Fire. This is something everybody knew. How could I not have prepared for it?”
In the dark void space caused by the Immortal Royal Flag, six clusters of jade-green hellfire lit up. In the surrounding space where the green flames burned, the heat could not be felt. On the other hand, it was extremely chilly.
Xiao Yan was stunned and he observed for a moment. He understood it soon, “It’s not a real flame. It is an extremely cultivated Yin aura?”
As the six clusters of jade-green hellfire lit up, the entire space was covered in a green sea of fire, engulfing the entire internal world of the Immortal Royal Flag.
Regardless whether it was Fei Ye or Black Jade, they revealed a disgusted expression.
The Marquis of Jinghuan looked at Fei Ye and laughed, “Although this Six Cluster Ultimate Yin Formation cannot fully curb the Pure Yang Primordial Fire, it can reduce the strength of the Pure Yang Primordial Fire to some extent. It’s not only effective when used against you. It’s even more effective when used against her.”
He instructed, “I shall take care of this Demon Phoenix. You will catch the Black Demon Phoenix for me.”
Besides the strong man behind him, another middle-aged man in a white robe jumped out of space. He was very mighty and the vibration of his mana shook space. He was also a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator in the Advanced Stage.
Beside this man, there were a bunch of fighters decked in armors. They were all in the Nascent Soul Stage too. Their killing intents were revealed and they were bursting with confidence. They were people who had experienced many battles.
The plan of the Marquis of Jinghuan was to fight Fei Ye on his own, whereas the two Nascent Soul Stage Elders would lead a group to capture Black Jade.
Black Jade was in the Advanced Stage of the Demon Lord realm. As a Demon Phoenix, her powers were outstanding. Besides, she had the Pure Yang Primordial Fire, thus average Nascent Soul Stage cultivators in the Advanced Stage were not her match.
But the Marquis of Jinghuan had used the Immortal Royal Flag to trap her and the Six Clusters Ultimate Yin Formation to reduce the strength of the Pure Yang Primordial Fire. With such a plan, he could greatly threaten Black Jade.
Especially since the Nascent Soul Stage Elders underneath him were not ordinary too. They were skilled in battle and were elites in their own realm.
Fei Ye stared at the Marquis of Jinghuan and unleashed another long whistle. In the whistle, there were signs of blood oozing from his pupils.
Demon Phoenix Tears of Blood!
The whistle of Fei Ye transcended the encirclement of the Immortal Royal Flag and sent his thoughts out directly to the Parasol Tree Forest.
The Marquis of Jinghuan saw this scene and nodded his head, “Is this the Demon Phoenix Tears of Blood? It’s indeed extraordinary, for it to have escaped the trap of the Immortal Royal Flag.”
He did not panic and said, “Your fellow tribesman at the Parasol Tree Forest should have received your calls of distress and are rushing over. But I have expected this too. They will need time to come. By that time, I will already have left with the beauty.”
“Your effort is meaningless.”
Fei Ye said, “Do you think you can escape.”
The Marquis of Jinghuan laughed, “If your Demon Phoenix tribe bares it all, I am not capable of resisting. But there will be someone who can do it. Once I form the Immortal Soul, I will go to the Parasol Tree Forest one day.”
“Just like now, I didn’t think of killing you today. I only want to delay you. My subordinates will capture the beauty. When I form the Immortal Soul, killing you will be easy.”
As he spouted these insane words, it seemed rather normal, as if it was supposed to be in that way.
Xiao Yan, who did not say anything from the start, laughed suddenly.
“It’s easy to say. The Great Zhou Empire will let you take the rap. The trouble that you are causing now, once Liang Pan knows about it, surely he will let the Demon Phoenix tribe do anything they want with you?”
The Marquis of Jinghuan looked at Xiao Yan and said, “I have seen you long ago, you are from the Celestial Sect of Wonders, aren’t you? From your dressing, you must be Xiao Yan?”
Xiao Yan laughed, “You have sharp eyes.”
The Marquis of Jinghuan said, “I knew that there were Demon Phoenixes that entered the Divine Lands to see the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. They even managed to go up Mount Yujing. After a day, they left the mountain and returned to the Barren Expanses. But I didn’t know you followed too.”
“I don’t know why you are with them. But if you don’t spoil my plans, I won’t make it difficult for you too. Once this is over, I will let you out of here.”
Xiao Yan laughed, “So I have to thank you?”
“You still want to help them?” The Marquis of Jinghuan remained calm and he enunciated very word clearly. “The human and demonic clan have always been enemies. The demons kill humans, thus it is only right for me to capture and kill these demons.”
“The leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders is also a huge figure in the human clan. As his disciple, don’t tell me you want to collude with these demons?”
Xiao Yan shrugged his shoulders and laughed, “Don’t rush into saying all these things. The Great Void Sect have always been wary of these demons, but they have not disturbed the Demon Phoenix tribe. It’s not because they bully the weak and are afraid of the powerful. It’s because the Demon Phoenix tribe have always been isolated. They did not even participate in the War between the Two Worlds.
“If you clash with other demons, the Great Zhou Empire may still support you. But you riled the Demon Phoenix tribe, turning them from a neutral party into enemies, do you think the Great Zhou Empire will still side with you?”
The Marquis of Jinghuan looked at Xiao Yan and laughed, “There are many things you don’t know.”
