Chapter 639: Best of Both Worlds
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
On one hand, Lin Feng was preparing for the Celestial Wonders World. On another hand, Lin Feng was taking care of Xiao Yan.
On Mount Yujing, within an area of Purple Clouds, Xiao Yan sat within a sea of Pure Yang Primordial Fire.
Around his body, the four appearances cultivated from the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire, Grand Sun Primordial Fire, Nanming Primordial Fire and the Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze also surfaced in the sea of fire.
Outside the Purple Clouds, Lin Feng was also watching this scene quietly. Beside him, there was a young lady in green that sat on her knees. She was Xiao Zhener. She was also summoning her own cultivation. Within her pupils, golden flames flashed continuously.
The golden flames in her eyes that flashed the colors of red and blue had a rhythm that was the same as the fire around Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan opened his eyes and looked at Lin Feng, “Master, I am ready.”
Lin Feng laughed while nodding his head,” Go and do it then.”
Xiao Yan shouted crisply and his Aurous Core started to spin. His state of mind became in line with void space and he could feel the attention the Heavens and Earth placed on him.
As his powers were summoned to the extreme, without any warning, a crack appeared in void space. A beam of twisted lightning was striking Xiao Yan’s head!
Lin Feng retracted his powers. As the Void Lightning Tribulations arrived, the help of anyone outside was only detrimental. The cultivator could only depend on himself now.
Without Lin Feng to relieve his pressure now, the five Primordial Fires around Lin Feng started to become unstable. But he did not panic. He summoned the Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtues. Firstly, the Great Celestial Way of the Eight Trigrams stabilized the Pure Yang Primordial Fire. Step by step, the Pure Yang Primordial Fire was used as the foundation to summon the Four Appearances Heaven-Cleaving Script and guided the other four Primordial Fires.
Right now, Xiao Yan was like an outstanding charioteer that was guiding a horse cart. The cart was connected to five steeds, which burst onto the mountainous roads.
At the sides of the road were cliffs. If one was not prudent, he would fall over the cliff and crush his bones.
“He must be experiencing the most dangerous tribulation ever.” Lin Feng seemed a little more serious and stared at Xiao Yan.
No one could help in the overcoming of the Void Lightning Tribulations. But if he was really in a crisis, Lin Feng was confident of protecting Xiao Yan’s life. But to Lin Feng, this was still very dangerous.
This was a challenge with high risk but high rewards. If he lost, then he could be bankrupt. In just an instant, Xiao Yan would fall from glory into the deepest pit of misfortune.
But if he won, he would be a major victor. Not only would he form the Nascent Soul, his powers would also be different. With the five Primordial Fires helping him to form the Nascent Soul, his powers would become extraordinary.
“What’s that old saying?” Lin Feng stared at Lin Feng while thinking, “Either you win everything, or lose everything!”
But Xiao Yan seemed to be able to withstand the test. He had been nurturing his powers for a long time, allowing him to become an outstanding charioteer who could command five premium steeds. Not only did he tame them, he even formed a path for himself on the road.
Now it seemed like the trouble that the Nanming Primordial Fire caused initially had benefitted Xiao Yan greatly in his life of cultivation. Its effects were far-reaching.
Ever since he promoted to the Advanced Stage of the Aurous Core Stage and controlled four Primordial Fires to the five Primordial Fires he now used to form the Nascent Soul, he had to be grateful for the times when he was dormant. Not only did it train his state of mind, it also gave him a deeper understanding of his powers.
It was like an extraordinary iron that had been grinded to become even stronger and tougher.
However, everyone had their limits. As time passed, the five Primordial Fires became more ferocious and showed signs of losing control.
To Xiao Yan who was in the Aurous Core Stage, he could still control the five Primordial Fires.
But at this point, the Void Lightning Tribulations gradually stopped and a clear light shone above Xiao Yan’s head. The Aurous Core rose gradually and released a bright flame.
Within the bright flame, the figure of a small infant appeared. It was his Nascent Soul.
Xiao Yan had overcome the Void Lightning Tribulations and formed the Nascent Soul successfully!
As the Nascent Soul was formed, the state of Xiao Yan’s powers changed and the previous pressure that he felt had disappeared.
The infant that looked 70-80% similar to Xiao Yan when he was younger waved and a white flame surged below his body suddenly. It was as if a lotus seat was propping him up.
The Heavenly Apocalyptic Blaze converted into the appearance of the Jade Green Dragon, the Grand Sun Primordial Fire converted into the appearance of the Blood Red Sparrow, the Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire converted into the appearance of Great White Tiger and the Nanming Primordial Fire converted into the appearance of a Genbu. They surrounded the infant and circulated, unleashing an immense power.
In the next moment, the infant went back into Xiao Yan’s head. Xiao Yan opened his eyes and looked at Lin Feng and Xiao Zhener. He laughed, “Master, Zhener, I have done it!”
Lin Feng laughed while nodding his head, “Finally, you are out of danger.” Xiao Zhener also laughed slightly, “Congratulations on forming the Nascent Soul.”
“Congratulations to your Immediate Disciple, Xiao Yan, on forming the Nascent Soul.”
At the same time, Lin Feng heard from the system, “Since your Immediate Disciple has formed the Nascent Soul, you shall be given a system reward. Among all the magic treasures in the gestation realm that you have now, you can choose one of them to promote to the metaplasia realm. But your natal magic treasure cannot be part of it.” (Translator’s Note: The natal magic treasure is a magic treasure that is very tightly linked to one’s cultivation and has an impact on the life of the cultivator.)
“I have always been rewarded with an increase into the next minor realm in the past.” Lin Feng thought, “The Immortal Soul Stage Third Level is equivalent to the gap in realm between the major realms under the Immortal Soul Stage. As Xiao Yan and the others form the Nascent Soul, they can’t ensure my promotion to the Immortal Soul Second Level.”
“In fact, for a magic treasure to increase a realm, sometimes it’s more difficult than human cultivation. Since I am allowed to increase the realm of my magic treasure, it’s not a bad idea too.” Lin Feng did not mind that his Bell of Destiny could not be promoted to the next realm. The Bell of Destiny was his natal magic treasure. But he was also looking forward to the day when the Bell of Destiny reached the Mahayana realm, as he wanted to witness its powers.
Lin Feng pondered for a moment, “Whichever magic treasure to promote, it’s not important now. When the time comes, let me see if I can get something more suitable from the system.”
After Xiao Yan formed the Nascent Soul, he retreated again to nurture his Nascent Soul and powers.
And before Lin Feng went to the Celestial Wonders World, in this period of time, besides protecting Xiao Yan, he was also calculating the momentum of the flow of spiritual energy inside the Celestial Wonders World.
This calculation was very precise. Even a normal Immortal Soul First Level and Second Level cultivator could not calculate it till so precisely. Only Lin Feng could do it.
During this period of time, those who entered the Celestial Wonders World to develop it followed Lin Feng’s instructions and begun their preparations beforehand.
Lin Feng came to the Celestial Wonders World and felt the movement of spiritual energy. He nodded at Dao Zhiqiang and the rest, “Well done.”
Dao Zhiqiang bowed towards him and said, “I wouldn’t want to delay your plans.”
Lin Feng conjured a spell as his clasped his palms together. A change happened in the Celestial Wonders World and countless talismanic prints surged, forming a huge formation. This caused the entire Middle World to be engulfed. It was the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
The twelve magic treasures drove it together and the Two Elements of Creation Formation summoned a frightening power. This caused the entire Middle World to tremble and the spiritual energy inside the world started to be in a disarray.
The Dual Polarity Peak, Virtuous Zen Master, Shi Zhongtian and Eye-less received Lin Feng’s notice beforehand and were mentally prepared. The circular ball underneath the black pond was alarmed and streaks of powerful aura were released.
As a magic treasure embryo of a magic treasure in the destiny realm, the supernatural awareness of the circular ball was enhanced. Normally, it was almost one entity with the Celestial Wonders World. It did not show itself. Only when something major happened did it have any reaction.
Everything that was happening now was an example.
The spells conjured by Lin Feng kept on changing. Waves and waves of mana were injected into the Two Elements of Creation Formation, summoning it to the extreme.
The immense power of the reversal of the two elements expanded, causing the entire Celestial Wonders World to be twisted.
The circular ball at the bottom of the black pond became more and more agitated. As Lin Feng summoned the Two Elements of Creation Formation, he also tried to pacify the circular ball.
As the supernatural awareness of both parties communicated, the circular ball sensed the power concept of the Two Elements of Creation Formation and understood slowly.
Lin Feng wanted to infuse the Two Elements of Creation Formation with the Celestial Wonders World before using the power of the reversal of the two elements to achieve a balance in the flow of spiritual energy between the circular ball and the Celestial Wonders World. After that, he would connect with the Greater Worlds on the outside.
He would use the spiritual energy of the Greater Worlds outside to continue supplying the black pond and the circular pond, allowing them to grow and mature.
The circular ball was nurtured within the Celestial Wonders World. Whether it was successful in developing in the future, it was difficult to predict. Before it matured, the spiritual energy in the Celestial Wonders World might have already been depleted.
Whereas the spiritual energy in the Celestial Wonders World was very nourishing and no such concerns were present.
As he involved the circular ball within the system of spiritual energy of the Greater Worlds, the Celestial Wonders World could also be preserved. This was the best of both worlds.
The circular ball stabilized gradually and watched as things changed. As it looked at Lin Feng summoning the Two Elements of Creation Formation, it allowed the black pond and itself to be infused within the recycling system of the power of the two elements. It watched as the boundaries between the Celestial Wonders World and the Greater Worlds were blurred.
This was bound to be a long process. Lin Feng had to control the Two Elements of Creation Formation carefully.
However, after a few days, the Dual Polarity Peak felt someone approaching from the other side of the boundary pathway between the Celestial Wonders World and the Void Battleground.
The other party was powerful and was an elder in the Immortal Soul Third Level. He destroyed the seal that the Dual Polarity Peak placed on the boundary pathway and came closer to the Celestial Wonders World.
This person did not intend to enter the Celestial Wonders World and seemed to be only confirming the exact position of the Celestial Wonders World in void space. He wanted to prevent the Celestial Wonders World from disappearing amidst the space-time turbulence.
After confirming its position, he did not cross over.
The Dual Polarity Peak approached, but he summoned a streak of black light and caused a huge upheaval in the Heavens and Earth, blurring the lines of life and death.
“Very strong!” The expression of the Dual Polarity Peak changed and knew that he was not as powerful as the other party, “He seems to be from the Hall of the Dead, but he is more powerful than King Qinguang and the other Hall of the Dead cultivators.”
