Chapter 632: Best of Both Worlds?
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Lin Feng observed the golden carps in the sea of light and realized that their life forms had already changed.
The golden-eyed black fishes might contain extremely chilly and Yin spiritual energy, but they were still ordinary lives that had their own souls.
But as they entered the sea of light, they converted into golden carps and were not complete lives anymore. On the other hand, they became freakish species.
Lin Feng used his supernatural awareness to scan. Although these golden carps had their own thoughts and awareness, as well as preserved some of their previous memories, they were no longer just pure lives anymore. They had become a part of the sea of light.
As they were influenced by the circular ball, this sea of light and the golden carps were filled with the concept and aura of eternal destiny.
“This is like the formation of the Immortal Soul. As one combined with the Heavens and Earth, he became immortal. If the Heavens and Earth did not perish, he will not perish.” Shi Zhongtian mumbled, “These golden carps are experiencing the same thing too. If this magic treasure of destiny realm doesn’t perish, then they will live forever too.”
Lin Feng nodded his head, “That’s right, they have provided their life essences to this magic treasure embryo, while this magic treasure embryo has also protected them. If it can overcome the barriers of life and death, it can also ensure a brighter future for the golden carps.”
Of course, these carps were protected by this magic treasure embryo. They did not possess the powers of an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator or a Demonic Saint.
For the circular ball to protect them, it must have the power to do so first. If this circular ball was destroyed, the golden carps would also perish.
But even so, as these golden-eyed black fishes came here, their life forms changed and their lives were lengthened.
Besides, before this magic treasure embryo was fully nurtured, it could not truly be considered a magic treasure embryo. It was probably just the embryo of the magic treasure embryo. For it to form its shape and become fully matured, it needed a long time. In other words, the Celestial Wonders World had to provide more spiritual energy. More golden-eyed black fishes also had to be birthed and then swim towards the sea of light as they grew older.
Whether it could become a magic treasure in the destiny realm, it was an unknown.
How long and how much effort did Emperor Shi and the current Great Qin Empire expend to cultivate the Immortal Dragon City successfully?
Even if this circular ball was nurtured, it would still be a magic treasure embryo and it was only a possibility for it to form a magic treasure in the destiny realm.
Of course, even if it doesn’t reach the destiny realm, it would still be a powerful magic treasure. In the future, it also had many chances to increase its realm slowly. But when that happened, the hope would be slim. It would also be a waste of the potential that this circular ball possessed.
That was why Lin Feng calmed down and focused on the circular ball, thinking, “I still need to plan.”
Shi Zhongtian seemed to have thought of something. He turned his head around, seemed to want to speak, but he stopped.
Lin Feng knew what he wanted to say.
Right now, it was as if the entire spiritual energy of the Celestial Wonders World was used to supply this circular ball in front of them.
The entire flow of spiritual energy of the Celestial Wonders World was gathered here and formed a special ecological system. The pond was able to breed such golden-eyed black fishes. After that, the life essences of these fishes were also sacrificed to convert the purest Yin energy to Yang energy. From there, the circular ball that was filled with Yang aura was formed.
The mines and the medicine valleys of the Celestial Wonders World were slowly walking towards destruction. That was because their spiritual energy was being sucked away for supplying the circular ball.
The dilemma was this. Should they keep this magic treasure embryo, or protect the Celestial Wonders World?
This was a dilemma that gave everyone a headache. Especially since Lin Feng’s original plan was to turn the Celestial Wonders World into the foundation of the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
A magic treasure in the destiny realm was very rare. It could not be obtained just by sacrificing a Middle World. If that was possible, all the Middle Worlds would have been destroyed. Many powerful cultivators were willing to sacrifice them to receive magic treasures in the destiny realm.
The Celestial Wonders World nurtured this circular ball out of accident. It was so accidental that probability could not be used to measure it. It was almost impossible.
If they missed this opportunity, they would never get something as good as this ever again.
A magic treasure in the destiny realm was extremely valuable to any great power, even for the Great Void Sect.
When it came to Lin Feng, he gave many of his magic treasures to his disciples. There were not many things that were useful to him, but a magic treasure in the destiny realm was definitely top in the list.
He naturally wanted to use this circular ball to cultivate a magic treasure in the destiny realm, but there were many problems he had to consider.
As a magic treasure embryo, this circular ball was not matured yet. It still needed the Celestial Wonders World to nurture it. This was a natural process that could not be sped up. Who knew how long more it would take before it would become fully mature?
Besides this, the Middle World had never nurtured a magic treasure embryo in the destiny realm before. Then, if they waited until the spiritual energy in the Celestial Wonders World had been used up, but the circular ball was not fully matured yet, what do they do then?
Lin Feng expended a lot of effort trying to solve this problem.
He might expend a lot of effort and energy, sacrifice a lot of things, but ended up with nothing.
“I want the magic treasure embryo in the destiny realm, furthermore…” Lin Feng pondered about it for a brief moment and he revealed a smile on the edge of his lips, “…the Celestial Wonders World can still be preserved, but I need to put in more effort.”
Lin Feng thought about it carefully and turned towards Shi Zhongtian, smiling, “I have decided to claim this world. Regarding this, I hope Comrade Shi can keep it under wraps.”
Shi Zhongtian nodded his head steadily, “Please rest assured, I know what to do.”
Lin Feng lifted his head to look at the black pond above him. “Besides this, I can also feel that the black pond water still contains something within.”
He swam upwards and Shi Zhongtian followed him. The two of them distanced themselves from the sea of light gradually and entered the dark region. With their supernatural awareness, they differentiated the direction and progressed.
After a period of time, Lin Feng stopped himself and observed the dark world in front of him.
Shi Zhongtian also stopped and felt a bit ridiculous. But as he saw how confident Lin Feng was, he became more comfortable and focused his supernatural awareness. He analyzed the direction in front of him.
Very soon, Shi Zhongtian also discovered that something was wrong. In the black pond, besides a huge amount of golden-eyed black fishes, there was also another huge figure.
That huge figure was surging with demonic mana and its might was immense. It did not seem to be lousier than Shi Zhongtian.
As Shi Zhongtian discovered this figure, the figure communicated with him, “Who is there?”
There seemed to be no evil intent, nor was there any display of ferocity. On the other hand, the communication revealed the other party’s purity and innocence, as if it was a child that was incognizant of the outside world.
Shi Zhongtian looked at Lin Feng. Lin Feng nodded his head and expressed that this demonic figure was the presence he felt earlier.
The other party was not from the human race, and had never interacted with a human before. It could not have known the human language. Lin Feng used his supernatural awareness to communicate with the other party.
“We are new to this place, who are you?”
As the huge figure realized that Lin Feng and Shi Zhongtian did not harbor any evil intentions, it swam over to them.
Its body was pitch-dark and could not be seen clearly in the water. Only when it was close to Lin Feng and Shi Zhongtian could they see it, through the dim light emanated from their mana.
It was a huge, black carp. It looked like a carp, but was bigger than a whale. From the looks of it, it did have some similarities to the Leviathan form converted from a Kun Peng. If it floated on water, it would seem like an island.
Lin Feng noticed that this fish looked almost similar to the golden-eyed black fishes, but there was one difference.
This fish had no eyes!
All the golden-eyed black fishes emanated golden light from their eyes, regardless of how dim and bright the lights were.
Only this huge fish had no eyes and no light was emanated from it.
Lin Feng used his supernatural awareness to scan and judged that it did not retract its golden light. It did not have any eyes indeed.
An eye-less fish.
And it was this eye-less fish that differentiated itself from the others. It motivated the intelligence of its mind and cultivated into a demon. What was stranger was that it formed the Undying Demon Soul and achieved the status of a Demonic Saint.
“The Celestial Wonders World is also a Middle World. Based on logic, it should not have the Void Lightning Tribulations. Then how did it form the Demon Soul and become a Demon Lord, which progressed until its current Undying Demon Soul?” Shi Zhongtian wondered.
Lin Feng looked at the golden-eyed black fishes before looking at this eye-less fish. He then descended into silence.
“Were you born without eyes?” After a few moments, Lin Feng asked.
The eye-less fish wiggled its tail and replied, “I had eyes just like the rest.”
“But as I grew older, the golden light from my eyes became stronger and stronger. My desire to dive to the bottom also became more intense. It was as if there lay my greatest happiness, my dream and was the perfect final destination.”
“It seemed like everything could be achieved there.” The fish replied. “But I don’t know if I’m just naturally different. Although I want to go there, there is always a voice trying to stop me.”
“Because there’s no freedom there.” The huge fish swam around, “Then, I did not know what benefits the sea of light possessed. But as I grew older, I just understood many things miraculously.”
“Thus, I knew that going to the sea of light will allow us to live forever. Our lives are actually very short. To pursue that longevity, we all yearned for the sea of light.”
“But I don’t like it.”
