Chapter 628: Cornering the Enemy
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
King Qinguang had a plan, but the Dual Polarity Peak was unwilling to let him complete it. As the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain retreated, it blocked the boundary pathway towards the Void Battleground.
As the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain shook, it converted to land it was on into a world where ice and fire intersected.
Amidst the ice, flames surged. This caused the entire area to be converted into a sea of fire. The burning flames torched the Blood River Primordial Water.
Streaks and streaks of black gases filled the place, but the pungent smell it brought about disappeared. In the air, only a burnt smell was left over.
There were flames and ice that were contaminated by the blood river and lost their spirituality. Some of them were even controlled by the Blood River Primordial Fire and attacked the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain.
But the momentum was still strong on one side. The blood river was completely razed and its scale diminished.
King Qinguang sighed and controlled the blood river to change its course. It attacked Shi Tianhao and the rest. Since it could not defeat the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain, it had to find another opening.
The Dual Polarity Peak stood on the top of the mountain and observed the movements of King Qinguang carefully. As he saw this situation, he unleashed a talisman, which spurted out balls and balls of Purple Clouds in the sky. These Purple Clouds converted into a small world and engulfed King Qinguang alongside the Unholy Blood River.
King Qinguang’s expression turned black, as he felt that his connection with the outside world was cut as he was trapped in the Purple Clouds small world.
Right now, he could not even communicate with others using his mana.
King Qinguang used his own powers and the Blood River Primordial Water to attack the Purple Clouds small world, but it was futile. The mana that created this Purple Clouds small world seemed ordinary, but it was actually very miraculous. As the mana was summoned, it formed a special formation pattern. Even the Blood River Primordial Water could do nothing to it.
As the formation pattern moved, layers and layers of space overlapped, causing the Blood River Primordial Water to be separated outside and could not come into contact with the small world.
This was a seal created from the combination of the Celestial Small World and the Fences of the Heavens.
If it was a physical spell body, King Qinguang might still be able to use the Blood River Primordial Water. But now, these two spells and abhijnas were used to seal the Blood River Primordial Water off, which were very useful in curbing it.
Lin Feng was no fortune-teller and could not predict that the enemy would have the Blood River Primordial Water. But he analyzed every possible situation and prepared sufficiently well. This left King Qinguang at a loss of what to do.
“The leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders is indeed as powerful as everyone claims him to be.” King Qinguang was a little bitter.
In reality, he was not afraid of being repressed, even if it’s Lin Feng’s spells. Even if this form of repression was even able to hold down an Immortal Soul Second Level Elder.
But if King Qinguang used the Unholy Blood River to overcome the seal, with enough time and patience, he might be able to escape.
However, that would take a very long time. Within this time span, if he was handed over to Lin Feng, he would have no chance of escaping.
King Qinguang sighed and started to use the Blood River Primordial Water to escape the repression of Lin Feng’s spells. As he tried, he prayed in his heart that he would not be sent to Lin Feng.
The Celestial Small World shifted void space and the outer surface of it kept on shrinking. Eventually, it converted into Purple Clouds the size of a human fist.
The Purple Clouds landed in the palm of the Dual Polarity Peak. He nodded at Zhu Yi, “According to Master’s orders, I am supposed to be guarding the boundary pathway over here. One of you shall send this Hall of the Dead cultivator back to Mount Yujing.”
Yang Qing and the rest looked at one another. Wang Lin said, “Let me do it.”
The Dual Polarity Peak opened his palms and the Purple Clouds floated into Wang Lin’s hands. Zhu Yi looked at him, “Take care.”
Wang Lin nodded his head, “Don’t be worried, I will watch out for myself.”
The Hall of the Dead cultivator that killed his relatives and caused him to lose his original flesh was still untraceable. Since this King Qinguang was the hallmaster in the Hall of the Dead, Wang Lin hoped to find out something from him.
Shi Zhongtian laughed, “Bring him along too.”
As he said, he passed the Hall of the Dead cultivator that he captured to Wang Lin.
The Dual Polarity Peak passed the seal of the Celestial Small World to Wang Lin and nodded his head at everyone. He did not say anything else and disappeared, as he combined with the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain.
The huge mountain floated in space and blocked the boundary pathway of the Void Battleground. The chill air from it spread and froze the spatial crack in the boundary. From the looks of it, the boundary pathway had disappeared.
Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao, Wang Lin, Tuntun and the rest bowed towards the majestic mountain in the sky.
The mountain was in the Mahayana realm and had powers equivalent to an Immortal Soul Second Level cultivator. But that was not the reason why they respected it.
It was because although the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain came from the Heaven Lake Sect, now that it was under the Celestial Sect of Wonders, it continued to do its best. Just before, the mountain protected them and settled the powerful opponent. That was why everyone was sincerely grateful towards it.
Shi Zhongtian looked at the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain and lamented, “It is indeed the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain from the Heaven Lake Sect. I heard from King Qinguang that the Heaven Lake Sect is destroyed?”
“The Heaven Lake Sect is scheming. On a couple of occasions, they plotted against the Celestial Sect of Wonders.” Shi Tianhao looked at the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain and explained, “Master seemed to have an agreement with the Dual Polarity Peak elder. That is why the Dual Polarity Peak elder is willing to be cultivated by Master and has become the magic treasure of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. But I am unsure of anything detailed.”
Shi Zhongtian nodded his head and revealed a curious look, “Tianhao, tell me what your Master is like.”
The Heaven Lake Sect was a sect that was much more prosperous than the Shi Clan. The Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain was a magic treasure in the Mahayana realm and its powers were equivalent to an Immortal Soul Third Level cultivator.
“Don’t be so anxious, Grandfather. This is very long.” Shi Tianhao laughed while telling everything to Shi Zhongtian.
Shi Zhongtian was engrossed as he listened. As Shi Tianhao spoke, his emotions also experienced countless changes.
After hearing that because he went missing, his son and daughter-in-law had to put his grandson into the foster care of others and enter the Void Battleground to find him, causing them to go missing too and his grandson to meet with a disaster, Shi Zhongtian was upset and enraged.
But as he learnt that Shi Tianhao accepted Lin Feng as his Master and continued to develop as a person, he revealed a comforted look on his face.
After hearing that his son and daughter-in-law escaped from the Void Battleground, but were forced back by the Shi Clan and Yu Clan, Shi Zhongtian was furious. He was tempted to barge into Xiling City and teach them a lesson.
When Shi Tianhao retreated, Lin Feng and Xiao Yan took care of the Yu Clan. Even Yu Xintao was restrained in the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner. As he heard till here, Shi Zhongtian cheered.
At last, as he learnt of how Shi Tianhao killed Shi Tianyi and obtained the Holy Light of Creation that belonged to him, Shi Zhongtian was even happier. He laughed, “Good! That’s good. Whoever owes a debt must repay it. For you to exact revenge personally, there’s nothing better than that!
After that, Shi Tianhao continued to describe the battle between Lin Feng and Xin Longsheng along with Kuang Heng and the Xuan Lin Holy Man. After hearing it, Shi Zhongtian was impressed, “Tianhao, your Master is indeed very powerful. He deserves my respect!”
“In the Void Battleground, I was stranded at a place for hundreds of years without escaping. I could not interact with others too. Otherwise, if I met someone who came in, I will have learnt about all these things.”
After laughing, Shi Zhongtian looked dull again, “While we have reunited again, your father and your mother are still stranded in there.”
Shi Tianhao’s laugh also vanished. He looked in the direction of the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain. The boundary pathway that was blocked off led to the Void Battleground, where his parents were.
“Father, Mother…” Shi Tianhao looked down.
As he reunited with his Grandfather, he was naturally elated. But this made him missed his parents even more.
Shi Zhongtian said, “After I meet your Master, I will enter the Void Battleground to find your parents again.”
As he saw Shi Tianhao trying to convince him otherwise, he laughed, “Don’t worry, I am now in the Immortal Soul Stage. If I am prudent, I won’t be stranded again.”
Shi Tianhao laughed awkwardly. He had just reunited with his grandfather. Naturally, he did not wish for him to go missing again.
Shi Zhongtian was also unwilling to be separated from his grandson again.
While he said it very easily, there were all sorts of situation in the Void Battleground. To those in the Nascent Soul Stage and the Aurous Core Stage, it was indeed a danger area. Even an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator was unsafe in there.
But his son and daughter-in-law were both stranded inside. He was very worried and had to make this move.
“Grandfather, because of me, the Hall of the Dead cultivators tried to capture you. I believe they will be targeting my parents too.” Shi Tianhao said seriously, “Since the hallmasters of the Hall of the Dead are called the Ten Kings of Hell, there must be others besides King Qinguang.”
Shi Zhongtian nodded his head. He was fearless, but that did not mean that he was arrogant and reckless. His fearlessness came from his understanding of his enemies. Even if his enemies were powerful, he was still fearless.
If the envoys of the Hall of the Dead fought him alone, they were not his match. King Qinguang could fight him, but who would win was unknown.
While King Qinguang was powerful, he was only a rising talent of the Hall of the Dead. There were other Immortal Soul Second Level cultivators among the Ten Kings of Hell.
Even if he did not meet all ten of them, bumping into a few of them was enough to give Shi Zhongtian pressure.
