Chapter 62: The script is wrong!
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_
Wang Lin’s face revealed a resolute expression. He bit his teeth and said: “I can endure any kind of suffering.”
Lin Feng stared coldly at Sīkong Nan. Right at the instant when he was about to attack, he suddenly noticed that after Wang Lin agreed, a hint of imperceptible smugness and exaltation flashed by in his eyes.
“Hm?” Lin Feng was slightly stunned. A thought flashed by in his mind: “This old geezer isn’t like me who has a system and knows that Wang Lin possesses amazing potential. The current Wang Lin just looks like a piece of trash with extremely poor potential. Why is he so happy about taking in Wang Lin?”
In a split second, Lin Feng forced back the impulse to attack.
“There’s something wrong with this old geezer!”
With this pause, the smugness and exultation in Sikong Nan’s eyes had already disappeared. He glanced at the gathering place of the Hengyue Faction in the distance where many people gathered and spoke: “This is not the place to speak. I’ll take you to a secret place and then we’ll talk.”
While speaking, black mist swirled around Sikong Nan’s entire body, enveloping Wang Lin and flying towards the distance.
Lin Feng quietly controlled the Black Cloud Flag and secretly followed behind: “Let’s see what the hell you want you old bastard.”
With a son of the heavens like Wang Lin, who was basically like the main character of a Xuanhuan novel, carrying an old grandpa around with him, who was essentially the Master, was practically the standard. But Lin Feng has this persistent feeling that there’s something wrong with Sikong Nan this old grandpa.
The black mist carried Wang Lin and flew for over 50 kilometers before landing in a valley. Wang Lin landed on the ground dizzy. In front of him the black mist reformed Sikong Nan’s figure.
Lin Feng followed behind them and arrived at the valley, but he saw Sikong Nan wave his hand, sending out a cluster of black mist that enveloped the interior of the valley. People on the outside could neither see inside nor hear the sounds within.
“This black mist is all the manifestation of that old geezer’s mana. If regular means are used to sneak in, no matter how stealthy a person is, they will still be discovered by that old geezer.” Lin Feng grinned: “Too bad it’s not a problem for me.”
Lightly shaking the Black Cloud Flag, the black light flickered and Lin Feng entered into the interior of the barrier that Sikong Nan setup. The Black Cloud Flag moves by directly breaking open the void. Lin Feng teleported from the space outside of the barrier to the space inside the barrier, he didn’t even touch the black mist and naturally won’t be discovered by Sikong Nan.
After Lin Feng silently snuck in, he saw that inside of the barrier formed by black mist, Sikong Nan and Wang Lin were standing face to face.
“Nobody should bother us here.” Sikong Nan said to himself. He then turned his head towards Wang Lin and said with a serious face: “Practising my Tao technique requires the aid of this Pearl of Styx in your hands.”
Lin Feng’s gaze fell upon the stone bead in Wang Lin’s palm, Wang Lin himself also lowered his head looking at the stone bead.
Sikong Nan continued saying: “Your innate ability is rather poor and your foundation is also weak. If you want to increase your strength as fast as possible then there is only one way. That is to use the Ascension technique to help you advance in leaps and bounds.”
Wang Lin asked in puzzlement: “Ascension?”
Sikong Nan nodded his head saying: “In a bit, use all of your effort to communicate with the Pearl of Styx in your hand with your mind. It’s best if you can arouse the Pearl’s power to nourish your body, at the same time release your mind to me and open up your consciousness. I will empower you and help you increase your level.”
“Only by working from both sides and combining the power of both sides can you be reborn.”
Wang Lin blinked his eyes, he was silent for a long time before suddenly opening his mouth and asking: “Elder, why are you helping me?”
When the words left his mouth, Sikong Nan and Lin Feng were both stunned. This kid, it’s one thing when he doesn’t open his mouth, but when he does he asks the right questions.
Sikong Nana was dazed for a moment before releasing a cold snort: “I get angry just looking at that pathetic appearance of yours. I decided to take pity on you and give you a helping hand and you’re striking an attitude?”
Wang Lin’s eyes flashed, he said in a heavy voice: “Thank you for your kindness, but there’s no need to trouble you. Please send me back to join my school elders.”
Sikong Nan narrowed his eyes: “Ungrateful brat, do you know what you’re saying?”
Wang Lin pursed his lips and said modestly: “I am slow-witted and my level is low, I am afraid that I will be unable to repay your kindness. I cannot receive a reward without merit, I do not dare to accept such a huge favor.”
Sikong Nan started to cackle: “But this isn’t up to you!”
Wang Lin’s expression changed slightly, he heard Sikong Nan continue to say: “Originally I wanted to save some time, but since you don’t know how to appreciate kindness, I can only spend some effort and let you witness my ability!”
While speaking, Sikong Nan’s two hands formed a spell sign. Rolling black mist instantly spewed out, completely covering Wang Lin.
At the side, Lin Feng watched with his jaw dropping: “This script isn’t right, the main character is going at it with his old grandpa?”
Being covered by the black mist, stars floated in front of Wang Lin’s eyes and his head was drowsy, he only wanted to fall asleep right now.
Instinct told Wang Lin that if he just sleeps over like that, he’ll never wake up again.
At this moment a light bulb lit up in Wang Lin’s head and a thought suddenly flashed by in his mind: “This old geezer’s cultivation level is far more than Qi Cultivation stage. He’s way too much stronger than me. Killing me would be like killing a mosquito.”
“Even though he appeared from the Pearl of Styx, he doesn’t seem to be able to control the Netherworld Bead? Right now the Pearl is the only thing I can depend on. If there is something that can protect me, it is definitely only the Pearl of Styx.”
Thinking here, Wang Lin forced himself to pull himself together and placed all of his mana into the Pearl of Styx.
At critical times, a man’s potential will explode. Wang Lin really did successfully communicate with the Pearl of Styx.
The originally dusky and completely unassuming Pearl of Styx emitted a pale yellow glow that isolated Sikong Nan’s black mist.
Seeing this Sikong Nan stormed with anger, but he couldn’t do anything about it. He could only constantly strengthen his mana and hope that the black mist can breach the yellow light.
Right now the old geezer’s balls hurt like crazy.
In the past Sikong Nan contended against people for this Pearl of Styx. With his physical body destroyed and his soul heavily wounded, he could only attach himself within the Pearl. Over dozens of years later, not only was he unable to refine this treasure, he was instead gradually being refined by the Pearl of Styx and trapped within the Pearl, unable to come out.
When Wang Lin obtained the Pearl of Styx, his body was wounded and his blood dripped onto the Pearl of Styx. He actually inadvertently used his blood to refine this treasure, but at that moment, Wang Lin’s level was too low and was unable to control the Pearl of Styx.
Sikong Nan’s plan was to take over Wang Lin. Not only would he regain a new body, he could also use this opportunity to refine the Pearl of Styx.
Who knew that Wang Lin would become suspicious and not give him a chance. But Sikong Nan also could not kill Wang Lin. If Wang Lin were to die, Sikong Nan would have to continue being trapped within the Netherworld Bead. So his plan right now was to use his spell to subdue Wang Lin and to have him obediently hand over his body.
Unfortunately, in this moment of life and death, Wang Lin actually successfully controlled the Pearl of Styx to resist against him. Sikong Nan was in an awkward situation, he could only continue competing with Wang Lin to see who gives in first.
Right now, Lin Feng had finally understood everything.
This wasn’t an old and awesome grandpa, this was clearly an old devil who wants to take over Wang Lin’s body!
Understanding this point, Lin Feng completely made up his mind. It seemed like the first bucket of gold in Wang Lin’s soon-to-be awesome life was the treasure, the Pearl of Styx and not some old grandpa.
This Sikong Nan was a freaking villain.
Not only would he not fight with Lin Feng for the position of old grandpa, he would instead become the villain which Lin Feng would use to become the hero.
Of course, the precondition of everything was that he mustn’t allow this old geezer to really take over Wang Lin’s body.
Lin Feng laughed coldly while looking at Sikong Nan: “Old bastard, bullying my disciple? You really don’t know how the word ‘death” is written.”
