Chapter 60: Everyone is into him

Black clouds gathered above Mount Hengyue, a small pitch-black mountain suddenly appeared in the air. It grew with the wind and instantly turned into a towering peak.
Following Pu Beizi’s spell sign, that massive mountain immediately smashed downwards. A screen of light like an upside-down bowl appeared over Mount Hengyue, protecting Hengyue Faction and withstanding the barrage of the giant mountain.
But following Pu Beizi’s constant force, Hengyue Faction’s protective formation, without a same-levelled Nascent Soul stage progenitor holding down the fort, had already become increasingly weaker. It was crumbling and about to be breached.
Lin Feng had already gone down the mountain, watching this amazing scene from far away his face was also a bit pale: “Nascent Soul stage cultivators are truly powerful. The difference in level is too big, any amount of planning is futile.”
He looked at the protective formation of the Hengyue Faction and also felt a bit lucky in his heart: “This formation is truly extraordinary, resisting a Nascent Soul stage cultivator for so long. Even if I want to capture Wang Lin, I definitely wouldn’t be able to force my way in. Instead of saying “capture”, “steal” would be a bit more appropriate.”
At the same time, it also occurred to Lin Feng that after he had created his sect, his primary objective was to first get his hands on a protective formation that could protect his base.
Hengyue Faction’s protective formation might be tough, but without a Nascent Soul stage cultivator anchoring it, it was ultimately unable to withstand Pu Beizi’s assault. Under a series of barrages, spider web-like cracks appeared on the light screen, spreading in all directions.
“Break!” Pu Beizi shouted. The giant mountain pressed downward, directly dropping three inches. All of Mount Hengyue trembled and with the sound of rumbling, rocks tumbled and dust flew. The massive mountain was actually forced down dozens of meters into the earth.
At this moment the Mount Hengyue Faction’s protective formation was finally unable to hang on. It released the sound of a mirror breaking and the entire light screen instantly fell to pieces, vanishing out of sight.
Lin Feng sighed, he knew that the Hengyue Faction was completely hopeless now.
Pu Beizi’s domineering voice travelled over from the sky: “Your Hengyue Faction’s two Nascent Soul stage progenitors have both died in the Void Battleground. You guys are unable to guard this Mount Hengyue, instead of letting it be stolen by someone else, it would be better to give it to the Xuandao Sect.”
“Besides people, you guys can’t take anything else with you. Another word and I wouldn’t mind wiping out the Hengyue Faction!”
“In addition, right now the Xuandao Sect is recruiting disciples. If there are people amongst you guys who want to join, you can stay on the spot.”
Lin Feng shook his head. This Pu Beizi really was ruthless beyond words. He wanted to dig up the foundation of the Hengyue Faction.
The two Aurous Core stage elders of the Hengyue Faction were both blue in the face, but they could only keep everything in their stomachs and leave Mount Hengyue, bringing along the few disciples willing to follow the Faction.
Lin Feng didn’t care about anybody else, all of his attention was on Wang Lin. Looking from far away, he saw that Wang Lin did not stay behind and instead left the mountain together with the Hengyue Faction.
Lin Feng resolutely followed over. The two Aurous Core stage cultivators used their escape technique as their bodies turned into arcs of light and carried the group of disciples who were willing to leave. They flew in the air for a long time before landing on a barren mountain.
Hengyue Faction was such a humongous sect, yet only a mere 20 or so people were willing to follow the Faction. With just a couple of small fry, they looked very miserable.
The two Aurous Core cultivators looked at each other. Their mouths were bitter but they still had to force themselves to raise their spirits and encourage everybody. They didn’t dare to allow the last bit of people to scatter.
Lin Feng silently crept up the mountain. He saw the two Aurous Core stage cultivators meditating. They were clearly making up for the mana expended while maintaining the formation before. In the meantime, three Foundation Establishment stage cultivators were guarding beside them.
The rest of the Qi Cultivation stage disciples were scattered in groups around the mountain. Some people were working hard training while others were cursing and complaining.
Wang Lin was sent to go get water for everybody. He went alone walking towards the small stream in the distance.
Lin Feng chuckled and was about to follow behind him, but when his feet had just moved Lin Feng’s movements suddenly stopped.
Because he discovered that someone else was also silently following behind Wang Lin, and was paying attention not to make any noises, afraid of alerting the others.
This person was precisely that middle-aged cultivator who was suspected to be Wang Lin’s master. In his eyes staring at Wang Lin, a cold light faintly flickered.
Lin Feng’s eyebrows slightly raised, it looked like he wasn’t the only one who had his mind on Wang Lin.
“I should just kill you while I’m at it and just perfectly get rid of your master-disciple relationship.” Lin Feng laughed coldly and followed over.
Wang Lin arrived beside the stream. He turned his head looking around for a moment and didn’t discover anyone.
But he didn’t know that the middle-aged cultivator was not far away from him and Lin Feng followed closely behind him.
The two stalkers paid attention to restrain and hide their bodies and aura. Wang Lin who wasn’t even Qi Disciple level 1 naturally couldn’t discover them.
After not discovering anyone behind him, Wang Lin crouched beside that stream and starred in a trance at the flowing stream.
The great change occurred too suddenly, making him a bit flustered. Essentially, he was still a simple youngster and today was his first time experiencing the law of the jungle in the cultivation world.
This feeling made him feel constrained and made him desire powerful strength even more urgently – to let him be able to do something – and not be like when the great change occurred which had just occurred, a powerless weed that no one cared about.
Wang Lin took out a pearl the size of a baby’s fist from his shirt and said in his heart: “This thing might be the key to changing my fate.”
That day he was rejected by the Hengyue Faction and he jumped off the cliff to kill himself due to unstable emotions, but he inadvertently obtained this stone bead.
Subtle spiritual energy traveled into Wang Lin’s body from the stone bead, healing the heavy injury created from him falling from the cliff. Wang Lin instantly realized that this stone bead wasn’t a normal item.
This is why that day Wang Lin was suspicious in his heart when Lin Feng visited him, he thought that Lin Feng had discovered the secret of the Pearl and came for the Pearl.
After Wang Lin entered into the Hengyue Faction, he was taught some of the most basic Tao techniques. But when he was unable to grasp the essentials, it was the stone bead that once again channeled spiritual energy into his body. Afterwards, Wang Lin discovered that he could actually successfully channel energy into his body, this strengthened Wang Lin’s judgment even more.
This pearl was definitely a treasure.
The Xuandao Sect had a lot of people and their situation was complex. It was precisely for the reason to guard the secret of the stone pearl that Wang Lin chose to stay in Hengyue Faction.
Seeing that stone pearl, Lin Feng’s eyes turned cold. He ground his teeth: “You’re the bastard…”
While the eyes of the middle-aged cultivator on the other side lit up, his face lighting up with pleasure: “I knew you had a secret on you, you little brat. Haha, god bless me, bestowing this treasure upon me.”
Sun Xiaozhu revealed himself. Wang Lin was horrified, turning his head and seeing Sun Xiaozhu, his expression instantly turned pale.
“Good disciple, let me see that stone pearl.” Sun Xiaozhu walked over towards Wang Lin while chuckling. Wang Lin’s fist holding the stone pearl slowly tightened as he said in a low voice: “Master, this is just a regular marble, I’m just playing with it for fun.”
Sun Xiaozhu sneered and suddenly slapped Wang Lin to the ground: “You still dare to fool me? With your garbage aptitude, there must be a special reason to you being able to channel energy into your body after entering the Faction for only a few days. If it wasn’t to determine the secret on your body, you think I would take a piece of trash like you as my disciple?”
Wang Lin laid on the ground as his body curled into a ball and tightly hid the stone pearl in his embrace.
He tightly pressed his lips, not saying anything. His face was filled with an unyielding spirit.
Sun Xiaozhu laughed coldly saying: “After obtaining a rare treasure, you don’t think of offering it to your master and actually dare to keep it for yourself? Be a good boy and give the item to me or else you’ll be in a lot of pain!”
“Nice job!” At the side Lin Feng was cracking his knuckles, hurriedly adjusting his clothes and preparing to make his appearance: “Your actions will perfectly complement my appearance, thanks bro!”
Lin Feng was just about to walk out when Wang Lin who was on the ground suddenly released a low cry. He then saw black smoke rise up from the stone bead in his embrace. It formed a human figure in the air who laughed in a strange manner.
Lin Feng practically tripped over his own feet. He hurriedly stood still, grinding his teeth and staring at the human figure in mid-air: “Holy fu*k, you really do have an old grandpa-master?”
