Chapter 515: No Room for Tolerance for Certain Things
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
After hearing the words of the Marquis of Jinghuan, Xiao Yan raised his brows, “Oh? He has a new backer?”
The Marquis of Jinghuan’s voice resonated in void space, “Shi Tianyi is cultivating on Mount Baiyun now.”
After hearing the words “Mount Baiyun”, Fei Ye and Black Jade looked at Xiao Yan. Xiao Yan felt a chill down his spine and grabbed his fist lightly.
Mount Baiyun was the intersection point between the Great Zhou and Great Qin Empire. It was almost the center of the Divine Lands. It was where the Great Void Sect was located.
The Great Void Sect was the first Holy Ground in the Grand Celestial World. It was termed one of the Three Holy Grounds in the Divine Lands, along with the Great Thunderclap Temple and the Mount Shu Sword Sect. The Great Void Sect was widely recognized as the leading one out of the three. Their disciples were all very outstanding.
During the War Between the Two Worlds, the Great Void Sect was the leader of the human race.
After the war, they were the ones who monitored the movement of the demons. Most of their attention were placed on the demonic world. Even so, no one dared to rile the Great Void Sect.
In the history of the human cultivation world, the Great Thunderclap Temple and the Mount Shu Sword Sect met with disasters before. The Great Thunderclap Temple was even destroyed during the War of Buddha Annihilation.
Only the Great Void Sect inspired much fear in others that no one dared to attack them.
Mount Baiyun had experienced a few clashes before, which were caused by conflicts between the humans and demons. But it was different from when the Great Thunderclap Temple was destroyed by the Hades Sea Emperor. Mount Baiyun was never taken down.
In the long history of the human cultivation world, the Great Void Sect often appeared as an arbiter. They tried to mediate the disputes between opposing parties and conserved the strength of the human cultivation race. Even the Great Thunderclap Temple and the Mount Shu Sword Sect were within the calculations of the Great Void Sect.
In the past, the younger Xiao Yan even wished that he had entered the Great Void Sect, so as to glorify his ancestors.
Although Xiao Yan did not have such an idea anymore, it did not mean that he did not understand why Shi Tianyi placed himself with the Great Void Sect.
Originally, Shi Tianyi’s backers were only the Shi Clan and Yu Clan. To the Celestial Sect of Wonders, they were nothing.
But now that he had sucked up to the Great Void Sect, it was a great difference from before.
“No matter who he finds as his backer, justice must still be served.”
Lin Feng’s voice resonated and shook the entire universe.
As Xiao Yan heard it, he laughed suddenly.
Shi Tianhao’s dispute with Shi Tianyi would never be resolved. No matter who tried to interfere, this vengeance had to be exacted. Whoever tried to stop would be killed.
Even if it was the Great Void Sect!
There were certain things that could not be tolerated.
Shi Tianhao would not do such a favor. His bunch of seniors and juniors would not do so either. Lin Feng would not do so too.
Xiao Yan recalled that a year ago, Lin Feng brought him to Xingyun Peak to fulfill the 3-year battle promise.
Although the Sword of Radiance Sect was nothing compared to the Great Void Sect, the reasoning was the same to Lin Feng.
“Master, the people from the Great Void Sect should know about the dispute between Shi Tianyi and Tianhao. Even so, they accepted him. This is an indirect challenge towards the Celestial Sect of Wonders.” Xiao Yan pondered, “This does not fit in with their normal style. With their status, even if Shi Tianyi was an era-defining genius, they would not make an exception for him.”
Not to say that the Great Void Sect was fearful of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. But it was just that they had their own style. Since it had been their working style for so long, there’s no reason for them to deviate from it just for one guy. No matter how outstanding that person was, he could not be put in the same category as the Great Void Sect.
Lin Feng sat on Mount Yujing and used his mana to communicate with Xiao Yan, “Within the internal section of the Great Void Sect, there were the Conservative Faction and the Radical Faction. Although the Conservative Faction had always dominated, the Radical Faction was also very powerful. They have been plotting for very long.”
“Previously, Pang Jie secretly revealed their locations, causing the Radical Faction to retreat and restrict their movements. But surely they won’t remain in that state forever?” Lin Feng said, “The Radical Faction wants the Great Void Sect to rule the world, thus it is natural for them to accept talents.”
“The disciples of the Great Void Sect were outstanding already, but there’s never a limit for talents to be accepted. Especially for someone like Shi Tianyi.”
Lin Feng laughed, “Xiao Yan, what do you think the Marquis of Jinghuan is plotting as he reveals this particular news to us?”
Xiao Yan was enlightened, “Master, so you are saying that the Marquis of Jinghuan is one of the talents that the Great Void Sect is nurturing?”
“That’s right.” Lin Feng said calmly. “He told us the news, because he wants to exploit the Celestial Sect of Wonders to remove a competitor.”
Xiao Yan pursed his lips, “However, that guy is crazy. He seems to be confused.”
“Even if it’s the Great Void Sect, they won’t try to disturb the Demon Phoenix, will they? They are pushing the Demon Phoenix to the side of the demons. When the two worlds clash again, the demonic clan will have another strong ally.”
Lin Feng revealed a smiling intent on his face, “Two possibilities. Either he is plotting something else or he is an idiot.”
Xiao Yan sucked in his mouth and said, “Master, if you say in this way, then it must be the former. But honestly speaking, no matter how I look at this guy, I still think it is more likely that he’s an idiot.”
Lin Feng laughed, “Actually, this is not important. If he has something else in mind, then he will take action sooner or later. Just wait and see what he does.”
Xiao Yan had his physical spell body with him everywhere he went. Keeping the Marquis of Jinghuan was not difficult, but he was a gold mine that could be used repeatedly. Lin Feng decided to leave him for his disciples to slowly deal with.
To Lin Feng, the Marquis of Jinghuan was an unimportant character. He was more interested whether there were any other backers behind him.
“Continue to escort Lin Tong to the Barren Expanses. After that, bring her back safely.”
Xiao Yan acknowledged that and continued with Fei Ye and Black Jade to the Barren Expanses. Very soon, there were other Demon Phoenixes that welcomed them. They rushed over from the Demon Phoenix Tears of Blood that Fei Ye had shown earlier.
There was a Demon Phoenix Grand Sage in the Undying Demon Soul Second Level that led the group. The rest of the demons had also formed the Undying Demon Soul too.
As many of them arrived at the Divine Lands, even if they were Demon Phoenixes, they attracted the attention of the human cultivation world.
The Demon Phoenix Grand Sage allowed the rest to bring Fei Ye, Xiao Yan and the others back to the Barren Expanses. He remained in the Divine Lands and awaited someone from the human cultivation world to explain the matter of the Marquis of Jinghuan to him.
Who arrived and how they interacted was beyond Xiao Yan’s knowledge. Lin Feng and Xiao Yan did not bother themselves with what happened.
A few thousand miles from the location of the incident, a streak of black light appeared in the skies suddenly. As the light flashed, it converted into a huge flag. A youth appeared and stood below the flag. He floated in space. It was the Marquis of Jinghuan.
He remained indifferent and entered the internal world created by the Immortal Royal Flag. The world was divided into various spaces. The subordinates of the Marquis of Jinghuan were located in different planes of space. And in the other planes of space, there were huge amount of resources being placed there.
There were different types of resources, magic treasures, armors and weapons, elixirs and medicines. There was even cash.
Besides these, a huge plane of space was divided into several boxes which were separated from one another.
While they were small boxes, they occupied a vast plot of land each. Each of the sceneries in these small boxes were different.
In each of these plot of lands, there was something common. There was always a residence in each of them, whether they were luxurious or simple.
The Marquis of Jinghuan entered one of them. As he walked into the room of the residence, there were servants. There were also maids. Besides these servants and maids, there was also a beautiful young lady. She was sitting in front of her easel. As she held onto her brush, she drew lightly on the painting pater.
The young lady looked at the Marquis of Jinghuan entering and she smiled.
The maids all retreated as they saw him enter. They closed the room door too. One of them said, “The Marquis and Madam’s relationship is so good. Out of all his concubines, he dotes on her the most. He always comes to find her.”
“But I have never seen him spending a night here. After speaking with her, he will leave.”
“That’s right. It’s weird.”
Although they lowered their volume, how could their words miss the ears of the Marquis of Jinghuan?
He sat on a seat and said, “You have to change your maids again.”
The young lady said, “You have a strong killer aura. You don’t have to vent it out on others.”
The Marquis of Jinghuan extended his hand and knocked the easel, “Don’t talk in this manner.”
The young lady laughed and closed her eyes. A light figure appeared above her head. From the light figure, Buddhis chants and songs started to ring out of it.
From the light, the figure of a monk could be seen. The monk laughed, “You must be in low spirits, from the way you are talking.”
The Marquis of Jinghuan replied, “My plans were thwarted, thus I am in low spirits. If you are not pleased with me, you can choose not to work with me.”
The monk smiled. He was filled with wisdom and was not easily infuriated. But the words he said were disturbing too, “I can kill you too, if I want.”
The Marquis of Jinghuan replied, “In the short term, you can’t find someone as good as me to partner with.”
“You are right. I lack nothing except time.” The monk replied, “However, if you are always like this, you have no chance of forming the Immortal Soul. Even if I’m pressed for time, I may still have to consider switching my partner.”
The Marquis of Jinghuan remained silent for a while, before saying, “I was spouting nonsense earlier, please forgive me.”
The monk replied, “No worries. Tell me what happened today. I have seen everything. It seems like the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders passed the Parasol Tree Wood Essence to the Demon Phoenix tribe.”
The Marquis of Jinghuan said, “Whoever comes from the Celestial Sect of Wonders is indeed extraordinary. But that leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders actually caved in to the Demon Phoenix tribe. He returned the Parasol Tree Wood Essence that he obtained. He is really disappointing. From this, I can tell that he is nothing special.”
“He likes to scheme and balance things out. No wonder he has lost his sharpness.”
The monk thought, “You think so?”
The Marquis of Jinghuan answered, “That’s right. Now I suspect whether he has the courage to oppose the Great Void Sect for his disciple, Shi Tianhao.”
