Chapter 634: All Walls Have Ears
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Lin Feng looked at Eye-less in front of him and thought, before he said, “This circular ball might have summoned the Void Lightning Tribulations for you to form the Nascent Soul, but I believe that most of your cultivation was due to your own understanding?”
Eye-less nodded its head, “That’s right. I figured all of them on my own. But besides them, I could sense a few concepts, which I found useful.”
That was natural. Although the circular ball below was not yet matured, it contained the way of the Heavens and Earth and the true meaning of destiny.
Lin Feng looked at the golden-eyed black fishes swimming around and said, “You tried to teach your species, but have been unsuccessful. That’s because your own understanding of the mantras was not summarized and you didn’t make it systematic enough. Those from your same species were unable to learn things systematically, hence the result was bad.”
“Unless there’s someone as outstanding and destined as you, you will find it difficult to nurture a successor.”
Eye-less pondered for a moment and said, “That sounds logical. You are right. Many of the concepts were only understood by me alone. But I am unable to describe it to them in such a way that they can understand.”
Lin Feng smiled, “If you have the heart to, you can join the Celestial Sect of Wonders to straighten out your understanding of the different mantras. After that, you can impart it to them.”
“I will also make it convenient for you. If you have things you don’t understand during the process of cultivation, I can guide you.”
Eye-less did not have eyes, but it mimicked an action of looking at Lin Feng. He asked curiously, “You are willing to help me?”
Eye-less hesitated for a while before asking.
After Lin Feng heard it, he laughed. No wonder Eye-less could reach his current state without any guidance. The way he posed the question showed how reliable he was.
Eye-less cultivated into a demon on his own and had his own set of demonic mantras which he cultivated. As he posed a question to Lin Feng, it was beyond the demonic spells that he cultivated. In fact, everything pointed to the Heavens and Earth as the source.
Regardless whether it was human cultivation mantras or demonic mantras, all of them came from the Heavens and Earth. Eye-less’ question hit the right spot.
Eye-less question didn’t make it difficult for Lin Feng. As he answered, he made Eye-less feel cheerful. The question that had bugged it for so long was finally answered.
As Shi Zhongtian heard Lin Feng’s answer, he felt enlightened too. He thought in his heart, “Tianhao has indeed found a brilliant Master.”
In terms of cultivation, Eye-less had always been relying on his own self. Not to even mention someone who could guide it, it hardly had anyone to interact in the first place.
It had a deep passion for cultivation. It bugged Lin Feng to address all the questions he had in his years of cultivation.
After a while, Eye-less finally stopped. It muttered, “So this is the case. I have been thinking of it the wrong way the whole time and almost embarked on the wrong path.”
Its huge body swam around the black pond and its demonic mana surged. His supernatural awareness expanded in all directions, as it digested everything Lin Feng guided him. As it was lost in thought, it forgot that Lin Feng and Shi Zhongtian were around. The two of them were amused.
Lin Feng said, “Are you willing to leave the water, or are you going to stay here?”
Eye-less regained its awareness and replied, “I will leave with the both of you.”
“Then let’s go.” Lin Feng looked at the sea of light beneath him before rising towards the top.
Shi Zhongtian and Eye-less followed him. Very soon, all of them had exited the water.
In the outside world, there were many other things around. Eye-less size was very huge. The place above the pond was the cracked valley, but it seemed small in comparison to Eye-less. Eye-less immediately crushed a few rocks.
Eye-less was stunned. It was adept in the concept of transformations, but it had never left the pond in its entire life. That was why it was a little lost. It quickly shrank itself and became a huge fish that was two to three meters in length.
As it shrank, it looked like a giant carp with black scales. Especially since it did not look like the other golden-eyed black fishes which shone golden light from their eyes.
Eye-less wagged its tail and floated in mid-sky. It looked like it was still swimming in the pond.
Lin Feng waved his hand and Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao and the rest revealed themselves again. All of them looked at Eye-less and were confused.
Eye-less did not feel anything and tried to size them up.
Suddenly, its body jerked and amidst a flashing black light, it changed its appearance. It converted into a young man in black, who looked ordinary and had white pupils.
Zhu Yi and the rest clasped their palm and fist towards Eye-less, “Greetings to Elder.”
Eye-less followed suit and did the same thing back at them. It was a little clumsy in his actions, “Greetings to all of you too.” (Translator’s note: From now on, Eye-less will be addressed as a male, since he converted into the form of a young man.)
Lin Feng said, “From today on, Eye-less will be like Jieyu and the rest. He will be part of the Celestial Sect of Wonders.”
Everyone nodded their heads and Zhu Yi looked at the pond, “Master, what do we do next. Do we guard the magic treasure embryo beneath?”
Lin Feng shook his head and laughed, “Make preparations. We are going to develop the Celestial Wonders World.”
Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao, Yang Qing, along with Shi Zhongtian and Tuntun, were all shocked.
“Master, that thing…” Shi Tianhao pointed beneath his feet. Lin Feng smiled slightly, “Don’t worry, I have my own plans. Let’s not delay.”
As everyone heard this, they were curious. But since Lin Feng had already made a decision, they respected it.
After they discussed official matters, Shi Tianhao peeked at Eye-less. He communicated with Lin Feng secretly, “Master, those black fishes beneath…”
“And you say you are all grown up?” Lin Feng looked at him. Shi Tianhao laughed cheekily and Tuntun was already salivating. If it was not because Eye-less was beside her, she would have dived down into the water.
Lin Feng shook his head slightly, “Don’t touch anything in the pond. I have my own plans.”
Shi Tianhao and Tuntun were down as they heard what Lin Feng said. As Zhu Yi and Yang Qing looked at the both of them, they knew what was going on and shook their heads in disappointment.
Eye-less was still stunned. He “looked” around and did not understand everything.
“What are your plans, Comrade Shi?” Lin Feng turned his head to look at Shi Zhongtian. Shi Zhongtian pondered for a moment before replying, “Master Lin, I will have to count on you to continue taking care and guiding Tianhao. I will like to enter the Void Battleground again to find his parents.”
“I heard Tianhao mention that you sent your avatar into the Void Battleground. I will like to thank you for that. Because of Tianhao, you have done a lot. The Void Battleground is very huge. With the Hall of the Dead cultivators keeping watch, I will like to enter the place to quickly find them.”
Lin Feng nodded his head, “I can understand your circumstance. I will not stop you. If there’s anything you need, you can feel free to ask me.”
Shi Zhongtian shook his head, “How can I trouble you anymore, Master Lin? But I have some injuries, thus I need to treat them first.”
He paused for a moment before looking at Shi Tianhao. He then said to Lin Feng, “Also, I will like to pass everything I have learnt to Tianhao. Please understand, Master Lin.”
In summary, the habit of the human cultivation world in the Divine Lands was to tolerate all kinds of mantras. But there were individual sects that stopped their disciples from learning from other cultivators.
Shi Zhongtian was unaware of Lin Feng’s rules, thus he wanted to clarify.
Lin Feng laughed, “Do what you want. I am fine with that.”
Shi Zhongtian replied, “Since this is the case, I shall impose on you a few more days. Please do not blame me for doing so.”
“You don’t have to stand on ceremony.” Lin Feng turned his head to look at Eye-less and laughed, “You are also very greedy. The crucible that you swallowed, my disciple is searching for it.”
Eye-less scratched his head and opened his mouth. A small green crucible flew out of it and landed in front of Lin Feng and the rest. It was the last Green Bronze Crucible of Emptiness that they needed.
Lin Feng caught it with his hand. As the crucible landed in his hand, he thought, “Okay, the Mountain and River Void Crucible and the nine Green Bronze Crucibles of Emptiness are all present. But more research needs to be done before I can nurture the Fire and Ice Fruit into the Fire Affinity Wood. Just the Blessed Spiritual Land will be insufficient.”
“When Emperor Xia perished then, the Crucible of the Divine Lands went missing. There are many things that we still have to plan.” Lin Feng thought. “We shall develop the Celestial Wonders World first. Hopefully, it can become the foundation of this place.”
For something as practical as this, a useful talent was naturally needed. Dao Zhiqiang was a suitable candidate.
He had just settled things over at the Cloud Mirror City and Yun Peak. His burden was slightly heavy. Right now, Lin Feng was going to put more pressure on him and increase his workload.
Those who were capable always did much more work.
Fortunately, Dao Zhiqiang was expecting this. He knew that the Celestial Sect of Wonders was going to develop even further. All sorts of matters would pop out. Thus, he would employ reliable and capable talents, nurturing them to help him.
Along with Zhu Yi, Wang Lin and the bunch of Immediate Disciples, he was also one of the earliest to learn about the existence of the Celestial Wonders World.
After receiving news about it, he knew about the problem he was going to face. He started to allocate his work at the Cloud Mirror City to others and picked some capable assistants. He was tight-lipped. As he chose people, he did not reveal anything to them.
Only when Lin Feng notified him to proceed to the Celestial Wonders World did he bring some of the capable ones over to assist him. He went over with Wang Lin to this undeveloped Middle World.
The few of them could not begin work so early on. They had to observe and plan first, before transferring the suitable manpower over to start.
Besides the various mines and herbs present, Dao Zhiqiang and the rest also had to analyze the geography of the place and made sure that it was suitable for living.
Lin Feng had already expressed his wish. He wanted people to migrate to the Celestial Wonders World. As the population boomed, he could choose talents from within this pool of people. It was also easier for him to gather the backgrounds of these talents.
Since he wanted immigrants over, then naturally the place must be suitable for living. Not only must it be suitable for cultivators, it had to be suitable for the average person too.
The Celestial Sect of Wonders started to develop the world, but all walls have ears.
Without even anyone divulging the secret of this place, an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator could sense its presence if it was close enough.
The Virtuous Zen Master sat above the mountain valley at the north foot of Mount Kunlun. He guarded the boundary pathway between the Celestial Wonders World and Divine Lands.
One morning, he felt something amiss.
He raised his brows and looked far away. The direction he looked at suddenly appeared a human figure, as void space vibrated.
