Chapter 574: The Heaven-Sword is Two-Third Out
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The Yin-Yang diagram on Lin Feng’s head spun non-stop as a boundless and deathly-cold light came forth. It illuminated parts of the pitch-black void, giving it into frightening green hue.
“My fellow Taoist, if you are ready, then I shall act,” said Lin Feng.
The Qin Emperor Shi Yu took a deep breath and said nothing. He merged his soul with the Immortal Dragon City and immediately, one could feel the power of the Immortal Dragon City increase exponentially.
The Yin-Yang diagram on Lin Feng’s forehead began to give off a clear light. In the clear light, one could see the shape of sword scabbard.
The sword scabbard opened itself and immediately, an unbelievably murderous aura came from within. It appeared to possess an apocalyptic power.
A giant sword slowly came out from the scabbard. Lin Feng said nothing as he grabbed its handle as he pulled the Heaven-Destroying Sword, the terrifying sword, out of its sheath.
At this moment, 50% of the Heaven-Destroying Sword’s blade was sharpened. A sword radiance spun and its blade appeared transparent.
While the other half of the Heaven-Destroying Sword was still coated in rust, the current amount of power the Heaven-Destroying Sword gave off was horrifying enough.
As Lin Feng wielded the Heaven-Destroying Sword, he waved it and immediately, the dazzling light retracted. All that was left was an immensely bright ray of light that resembled a shooting star slicing through the night sky.
However, as this light shone, the world around it appeared to lose color and plunge into an endless darkness. It was as if the world was consumed by destruction.
Where the sword radiance shone, life extinguished.
The Immortal Dragon City, faced with this all-killing sword, did not seek to evade or avoid it. Instead, it concentrated on using giving off all of its powers.
The Immortal Dragon City, that was tens of thousands of kilometers long, began to glow with light. In the light, one could see numerous human figures standing shoulder-to-shoulder on it. The wills of many formed the wall as they faced the oncoming death and destruction.
Never submitting, never giving way and without any fear! To protect what was behind them, even if they themselves would die, they would do it without hesitation!
Numerous soldiers stood bravely on the Immortal Dragon City and roared in unison, shaking the very heaven itself.
With that roar, it appeared that the world moved back in time to the dark days where hope for mankind was borne, where mankind began to rise.
The will of many was able to change the fate of humanity. It was a truly revolutionary power.
Without ever submitting, Mankind rose fearlessly and united in defense of each other!
This was the most powerful will of Man that had been passed down for eons. At this very moment, they decided to release this will into a tangible power to counter their impending destruction.
At the bottom of the Immortal Dragon City, the outlines of the many dragons could be seen. They appeared to have been awed by the collective roar of Man as they submitted themselves below the Immortal Dragon City to willingly join in the defense.
The sword radiance of the Heaven-Destroying Sword clashed with the power of the Immortal Dragon City. At that instant, everywhere around them seemed to have collapsed into a whirl of colors. All spiritual beings were destroyed.
The space appeared to have been divided into two by a formless energy with the Immortal Dragon City as the border. The side of the Heaven-Destroying Sword was an endless expanse of chaos while the other side remained intact as if nothing had happened.
The two sides plunged into a stalemate. Neither side was willing to give way.
Throughout this whole process, the many layers of rust on the Heaven-Destroying Sword began to flake off in large quantities.
On top of the Immortal Dragon City, at the forefront of the wall which was the first line of defense against the Heaven-Destroying Sword’s sword radiance, one could see a human shape forming.
The human shape eventually solidified. It appeared to a man of average build, clothed simply and with an average complexion.
However, the person brimmed with awe and commanded respect. He struck fear into others’ hearts, who felt subdued by him and was obliged to follow behind in his stead.
Lin Feng understood that that was the spirit of the First Emperor. He was the first human emperor of the Primordial Age.
When the spirit of the First Emperor appeared, he did not do much. Instead, he extended both arms to the heavens.
At this time, Lin Feng felt as if the entire universe trembled. This was a supremely mythical feeling. If one’s cultivation was not high enough, he could not feel it.
It was if Creation itself trembled for him.
With this tremble, the spirit of the First Emperor disappeared and the Immortal Dragon City gave off a brilliant light.
Looking at the light, Lin Feng’s eyes turned to slits as he could feel his spirit, under the power of the light, becoming increasingly stagnant.
“The eternal glow and the immortal light…” Lin Feng felt the power of the light carefully. “Eternity is the limit of Time. Heaven and Earth will be destroyed and who can truly attain eternity? However, bathing in this glow, one can really feel as if one had obtained the secrets to eternity. With endless growth, it is a power without limit.”
Under the eternal glow, the Heaven-Destroying Sword was unable to progress further.
The powers of the Heaven-Destroying Sword became more murderous as the sword radiance battered against the Immortal Dragon City like waves against the beach. However, the Immortal Dragon city did was like a shoal in the ocean. No matter how much the ocean tried to wash it away, it never moved.
Lin Feng began to smile as he thought, “Under the Eternal Glow, all those who received the protection of the Immortal Dragon City will be indestructible. Heaven and Earth may crumble but will they be eternal?”
Even if there was enough energy to destroy it, the object appeared frozen at the particular point in time. It cannot change.
Unless one destroyed the Eternal Glow, no amount of energy would be able to menace the Immortal Dragon City.
“Congratulations, my fellow Taoist. Let’s not talk about the powers of this treasure, solely based on its defensive properties, it is the best in the Divine Lands!” Lin Feng as he stopped his attack and retracted the Heaven-Destroying Sword.
The powerful sword in his hand continued to tremble as if it did not want to stop.
The shadow of the Qin Emperor, Shi Yu, appeared next to the Immortal Dragon City. He touched the wall. Even for someone with his steadiness, his fingers trembled.
Since more than ten thousand years, the Great Qin Empire had been trying to perfect the Immortal Dragon City. Many generations of Qin Emperor innumerable amount of resources to doing so. Finally, under his reign, he completed it.
At the same time, the Great Qin Empire finally possessed a Destiny-level magic treasure. It was not a damaged one but instead, a perfect one. A true Destiny-level magic treasure that was able to dominate the heavens.
However, Shi Yu calmed himself down as he looked at Lin Feng.
His gaze fell upon Lin Feng’s the Heaven-Destroying Sword. At this moment, two-third of the sword was sharpened and its vibrating sword radiance gave off a murderous air. The last one-third of its blade, near its handle, was still caked in rust.
As the master of the Immortal Dragon City, Shi Yu’s soul was now connected to this Destiny-level magic treasure. he could feel clearly that while the Immortal Dragon City was able to resist the powers of Lin Feng’s the Heaven-Destroying Sword, it had to use its ultimate move, Eternal Glow.
Eternal Glow was the most powerful move of the Immortal Dragon City. Without activating Eternal Glow, the Immortal Dragon City did shake a bit under the Heaven-Destroying Sword’s barrage.
Finally, as it approached perfection, Eternal Glow was able to successfully resist against the Heaven-Destroying Sword.
However, when he realized that Lin Feng’s the Heaven-Destroying Sword only released two-third of its power, Shi Yu’s heart sank.
If the Heaven-Destroying Sword, like the Immortal Dragon City, was perfected, then would the Immortal Dragon City still be able to resist the Heaven-Destroying Sword?
Shi Yu reigned for almost 1000 years. This was the first time he did not dare to give any deeper thoughts to this particular matter.
He steadied himself and said, “Defense-wise, I am confident that the Immortal Dragon City is the first in the Grand Celestial World. However, it is not the only one. The Great Void Sect’s Supreme Heavenly Mirror is universally recognized as the best treasure in the world. Its offensive and defensive powers are without equal.”
“While I believe in the defensive powers of the Immortal Dragon City, I cannot ascertain whether it is superior to the Supreme Heavenly Mirror.”
Lin Feng nodded his head. Shi Yu’s words were objective. It was not that he did not have faith in himself.
While the Great Qin Empire possessed its very own Destiny-level magic treasure, Lin Feng did not object to it. The Great Qin Empire’s relation with the Celestial Sect of Wonders was harmonious at the moment. Even if there was a conflict between the two, they were separated by distance.
This time, by helping them out, he benefitted a great deal too. He was able to better understand the powers of the Eternal Glow.
More importantly, the Heaven-Destroying Sword was further refined.
Let’s not talk about Shi Yu, Lin Feng himself anticipated the day when the Heaven-Destroying Sword was complete.
Lin Feng sheathed the sword and just as he was about to seal it once more, he noticed that it began to change.
On its scabbard, dozens of shiny metal chains appeared as they danced in the air.
A human shape began to form in mid-air and slowly, it revealed to be a young woman. The silver chains wrapped themselves around her body and locked themselves as they giant sword scabbard landed on her back.
However, this time, the sword scabbard reduced in size. While it was still humongous compared to her body size, it was no longer like an ant carrying a mountain.
The young woman was the exact same person Lin Feng had seen in the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World carrying the scabbard and circling the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree.
“Indeed, she appeared to have grown…” Lin Feng thought. He noticed that the young woman before him now appeared to be 17 to 18 years old. In the blink of an eye, she aged and grew in size.
Her body was rod-straight and she resembled a sharp sword that had just left its scabbard.
Even if she was carrying the giant scabbard, one felt as if she was going to leap into the heavens at any point. She brimmed with a powerful aura.
Her complexion was elegant but expressionless. She did not reveal any emotion and she was like an icy-cold marionette.
Lin Feng noticed that her hair appeared half-black and half-white. However, her white hair did not show sign of age. Instead, it was mixed together with her black hair. Together, they resembled a chaotic, primordial mess.
After the young woman showed herself, she stood behind Lin Feng and said nothing. It was evident that she obeyed only Lin Feng’s commands.
This attracted Lin Feng’s attention. Based on his previous experience, the sword spirit did not react to external stimuli, including its cultivator Lin Feng.
The only response it gave to the external world was destruction and massacre.
“As the magic treasure became more and more mature, does its original soul change?” Lin Feng thought.
Shi Yu looked at the scabbard-carrying young woman with an inquisitive look on his face.
Lin Feng coughed and said, “This is my swordbearer, her name is… Xuan Li.”
