Chapter 664: Bearish Child Has Grown Up
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
While Li Yuanfang was beside Luo Qingwu, between the both of them, there was an empty space left intentionally. Further out from this space, there were a bunch of Successive Disciples from the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
Every one of them was powerful and they revealed their extraordinary cultivation foundations. They all donned the same purple robe, which had a Taiji Diagram on each of them. The marking on the cuffs was simple. It was a pure-black circle which was empty in the middle.
This marking showed that these disciples belonged under Shi Tianhao in the Wasteland Valley.
Their cultivations were not ordinary. Especially one of the young lady that led the pack. She looked beautiful and she appeared gentle. Everyone treated her as the leader, but the young lady seemed to be a little cautious about it.
She was Zhuge Wanqiu, a Successive Disciple under Shi Tianhao.
There were also many disciples in the Wasteland Valley. Following Shi Tianhao’s gain in fame after the battle at Xiling City and his increasing age, more and more disciples chose him as their Master. Now, the number of disciples in the Wasteland Valley was no longer less than the Blizzard Valley. Among them, there were also many talents.
But right now, these disciples felt awkward.
On such an important day in the history of the sect, their Master had gone missing.
Although their own Master was never very reliable, this time, it was different. Shi Tianhao even passed the message that he would be back before the Sect-Opening Ceremony.
But till now, even after the ceremony had ended, and the internal competition was about to start, Shi Tianhao had not arrived yet.
“Where is Master?” A young man shouted, “So many people are watching us. This is embarrassing!”
Zhuge Wanqiu turned to look at him and her brows creased. She said softly, “Zhenting, don’t say this kind of thing!”
After Huang Zhenting was reprimanded by Zhuge Wanqiu, he pursed his lips and did not say anything, but his expression naturally revealed his indignance.
Liu Xiafeng and Yan Wuwei looked at each other and they shook their heads while sighing.
“While Youngest Junior Uncle is a little…that, but in front of so many others, you are not watching your words properly.” Yan Wuwei said to Huang Zhenting unkindly.
Liu Xiafeng looked at him from the corner of his eyes, “The others can criticize him, but not you.”
As expected, Huang Zhenting was unafraid of Yan Wuwei. He made a clown face towards him, “Senior Fatty, control your own mouth first.”
Yan Wuwei was extremely furious till he stared at him, “Rascal!”
While he was angry, Yan Wuwei could do nothing to Huang Zhenting.
Huang Zhenting was in the same cultivation realm as Liu Xiafeng and Zhuge Wanqiu, the Advanced Stage of the Foundation Establishment Stage. He was stronger than Yan Wuwei who was in the Intermediate Stage of the Foundation Establishment Stage.
Huang Zhenting had a reputation. His experience was similar to Zhou Yuncong. After the Sect-Opening Ceremony at Xiling City, Shi Tianhao found him on the streets and brought him back.
During that time, Huang Zhenting was only 4 or 5 years old. After that, he passed the tests of the Heart-Revealing Steps and Successive Disciples. Eventually, he became Shi Tianhao’s disciple in the Wasteland Valley. His cultivation also improved leaps and bounds.
However, as he followed Shi Tianhao, he also followed in his footsteps in terms of his behavior. But as compared to Shi Tianhao, Huang Zhenting was a lot simpler. It was just that he was a little wilder and direct.
At times, he would be betrayed by Shi Tianhao. When he realized that, he would get angry, but Shi Tianhao was not one to remember things like this. Huang Zhenting would continue to get bullied.
But perhaps it was because of his simple state of mind, along with his gift in cultivation, which allowed him to erect the spiritual altar and cultivate the crucible within eight years. His speed was much faster than most other Successive Disciples and he was slowly getting known in the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
Huang Zhenting was a cheerful and positive guy. He was also very familiar with the Successive Disciples from other factions. Everyone also treated him as a naughty little boy and had fun with him.
“If Master don’t return, I wonder if Grandmaster will punish him?” Huang Zhenting was imagining some ‘wonderful’ things. But as he said it, a voice sounded in his head, “Whether I will get punished, I’m not sure. But someone’s life is about to get worse.”
Huang Zhenting was stunned, “Master!”
Void space started to crack and a huge figure jumped out from it.
In the Central Great Pavilion, Lin Feng revealed a smile on his face. Everyone was also shocked. Near the center of the empty space in front of the pavilion, between Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu, another person was there.
It was a tall and huge youth that looked like he was 17 or 18 years old. He looked handsome and his eyes were bright. On the whole, he was very charming and his black hair flowed and rested on his shoulders.
His body was very proportionate. But he seemed to contain a frightening explosive strength in his body, which left others terrified.
Although he wore a smile on his face and his external appearance was very loveable, everyone felt like they were facing a huge beast that came from the primitive times. He seemed to be able to turn the world upside down with his hands.
Shi Xingyun stared at him and sighed, “He has finally grown up.”
Not only Shi Xingyun, most people around were confused. They mumbled, “He…has grown up. He has also become more powerful.”
At this point, between his brows, one could still see the marks on it that were left during his childhood. From his looks, everyone could tell his identity.
He was the youngest male Immediate Disciple of Lin Feng, the naturally supreme Shi Tianhao!
As he was born, he was in the Intermediate Stage of the Foundation Establishment Stage. He formed the Natural Supreme Spiritual Altar and was targeted by Shi Tianyi. He averted the disaster and joined the Celestial Sect of Wonders. As he escaped from the grips of death, he became even more powerful.
He was the most powerful Aurous Core Stage cultivator during the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai. On Mount Kunlun, he killed a Nascent Soul Stage Grandmaster who was an entire realm above him. After that, at Xiling City, he killed Shi Tianyi.
He possessed two types of the Holy Light of Creation and was also the youngest person in history to reach the Nascent Soul Stage. He formed the Nascent Soul at the age of 13, a shocking achievement.
His various achievements were equally shocking. What was more terrifying was his age. He achieved everything before he reached 13 years old.
It was as if he was telling the rest that the hundreds and thousands of years that they had lived were all wasted.
As they thought of how Shi Tianhao would continue to grow and his cultivation and powers would continue to increase, even the Immortal Soul Stage Elders were worried.
Right now, the old Xiao Budian and the current Shi Tianhao, he, had really grown up already.
Although he was still a teenager, his look of childishness had disappeared from his face.
Shi Tianhao greeted Lin Feng, who was in the Central Grand Pavilion, “Master, I am back.”
Lin Feng smiled, “You are really late.” The person who was the most intuitive towards Shi Tianhao’s changes were naturally him. As he looked at how he had matured over the years, even Lin Feng felt comforted.
Shi Tianhao laughed, “Don’t be angry, Master. I am back a little late this time. But fortunately, I have not delayed the start of the internal competition.”
He looked at Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the other disciples and laughed, “Please don’t blame me later.”
“Everyone, be prepared, I have brought back good stuff for all of you.” Shi Tianhao laughed while he looked at Xu Yunsheng, Liu Xiafeng and the rest. He also said it to Huang Zhenting, Zhuge Wanqiu and those under him. “I have prepared a surprise for all of you too.”
Yan Mingyue looked at Shi Tianhao. After observing him for a moment, her brows suddenly stood, “This troublemaker has brought back an injury?”
Lin Daohan nodded his head, “Although his injury has healed considerably, his powers and soul possesses sign of weaknesses. His injury must be quite bad.”
The Immortal Soul Stage Elders also noticed that. They could not help but look at one another. Many thoughts surfaced in their minds.
Shi Tianhao, Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and Wang Lin were all in the Intermediate Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage. With the achievements that he had, the only way Shi Tianhao could have gotten injured was through a powerful cultivator in the Immortal Soul Stage.
In the Nascent Soul Stage, apart from his own seniors, there were literally no one who could match him. Even if there was, Shi Tianhao was exceptional and could easily overcome that person.
He even had the Kun Peng Pavilion that Lin Feng gave to him. Even if he could not match up to an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator, he could at least retreat.
Xiao Yan and the rest looked at Shi Tianhao too. Shi Tianhao laughed, “I went to the Barren Expanses and found a Tao Wu. I fought with it. I did not win or lose, but it hurt me. Even the Kun Peng Pavilion was slightly damaged.”
In the Central Grand Pavilion, those below the Immortal Soul Stage were shocked.
The Tao Wu demonic tribe was one of the Four Immemorial Fearsome Beasts. They had the shape of a tiger, long fur, face of a human, legs of a tiger, teeth of a pig and a long tail. They were extremely ferocious and brutal.
Although Shi Tianhao did not mention what cultivation that Tao Wu was in, for it to hurt Shi Tianhao and even the Kun Peng Pavilion, it must have formed the Undying Demon Soul and was a Demonic Saint.
“I did not make it easy for it to. I cut a piece of its flesh out and brought it back.” After Shi Tianhao finished speaking, he extended his hand and a huge piece of flesh appeared in his palms. It was like a small mountain and was stabilized by his powers. The green fluid kept on rumbling on the flesh, but was unable to flow down.
Countless holy radiance and runes surrounded the flesh and the tremendous vibration of the demonic powers shook void space.
This piece of flesh did not rot, while Shi Tianhao conserved its life.
Even the bunch of Immortal Soul Stage Elders were in awe.
As this bearish child grew up, he even dared to provoke a Tao Wu. He even went as far as to cut off the flesh of the Tao Wu and brought it back.
At this point, inside the Central Great Pavilion, Lin Feng’s projection of himself stood up and said, “I’m sorry that my disciple came late.”
“Right now, I announce that the internal competition of the Celestial Sect of Wonders officially begins.”
