Chapter 677: Merciless Character in Every Generation!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Zhou Yuncong stretched out his right hand and his palm struck space like a dagger.
A streak of black gas swept across space.
The three Wuyang beasts that were blocking Zhou Yuncong could not react in time and they were chopped into halves.
Zhou Yuncong struck again and another five Wuyang beasts were killed.
It was extremely brutal. The Wuyang beasts that troubled the Foundation Establishment Stage cultivators were totally disregarded by Zhou Yuncong. As he struck a couple of times, more than 20 Wuyang beasts had been killed.
There were those with high cultivation and sharp eyes among the audience that could confirm that Zhou Yuncong had not unleashed his full potential yet. His powers were extremely nourished. Killing all these Wuyang beasts was nothing to him.
Not only was it comfortable for him, as Zhou Yuncong progressed forward, the number of Wuyang beasts that he killed were more and more. His killing aura also became thicker and thicker as he moved along. It was as if he was a ferocious dagger that flashed with a fierce radiance as it was drawn.
The Wuyang beasts were not dumb. After they were at a disadvantage, they would gather their compatriots first before surrounding Zhou Yuncong again.
But it was useless.
Zhou Yuncong easily swept away those who came. Wherever the black gas crossed, blood was shed.
Such a ferocious display could not be measured using the standard of a Foundation Establishment Stage cultivator anymore.
Inside the Grand Heavens Pavilion, a bunch of Immortal Soul Stage Elders looked at this brutal young man and raised their brows. They were all focused on the black gas that had totally engulfed Zhou Yuncong.
“Don’t tell me…this is the Yang Incinerating Entity?” Yan Mingyue looked at Lin Feng and the rest shockingly. Lin Feng smiled slightly, “Sorry to have made ourselves a laughing stock.”
Yan Mingyue shook her head and complimented, “I didn’t think that I will ever see someone who has the Yang Incinerating Entity in my life.”
Even Lin Daohan was slightly stunned and agreed with what Yan Mingyue said. That was because the Yang Incinerating Entity was too rare. It was even rarer than a Pure Yin or Pure Yang body.
Furthermore, for someone who possessed the Yang Incinerating Entity, as this characteristic of his was displayed, the person might not survive. The Yin energy in his body would be wiped out and he would perish along with the Yin energy.
That was why many of those with the Yang Incinerating Entity were never known. They perished along with this special body of theirs, unknowingly.
Only those who discovered this quality of theirs and were accepted into a powerful sect, guided with elite mantras and taught how to adjust their body were able to control the Yin energy in their body, thus preserving their lives.
Those with the Yang Incinerating Entity did not seem to be poorer in cultivating Yang-type mantras as compared to those with Pure Yang bodies. In fact, they were even more practical in using these mantras.
With Zhou Yuncong as an example, he incinerated the Yang energy in his body to conjure up the Yang Incinerating energy, that could boost his own powers. He obtained a destructive power that was far beyond his current cultivation.
Xiao Yan laughed, “My Fifth Junior’s own cultivation hasn’t seen much progress, and it seems to draw a lot of disdain from the juniors? That’s because he spent most of his energy on guiding his own disciple.”
Yang Qing smiled, “With so many Immortal Soul Stage Elders around, Senior, don’t compliment me so heavily. I am indeed the lousiest all of us.”
Zhou Yuncong bashed his way through the shifting luminaries on the second level of the pagoda. Wherever he went, the corpses of the Wuyang beasts could be found.
The Wuyang beasts did not even come singly. They circled Zhou Yuncong, but they were ultimately killed.
The entire first level of the pagoda seemed to have been drenched in the smell of blood, as if it was hell.
Yan Mingyue saw this scene and could not help but turn to Lin Daohan, “Xingyu has an opponent now.”
Lin Daohan saw this and nodded his head, “Not bad.”
Shen Qifeng looked at Zhou Yuncong. After a while, he shook his head and laughed, “Luckily this is in the Dharma Hall. Serves my unruly disciple right for what he did.” As he said, he looked at Zhu Hongwu.
Zhu Hongwu sat in the pavilion and remained silent. He turned his attention towards the light projection. Zhu Yong was climbing onto a luminary and was advancing to a higher level.
Shi Yu’s voice resonated at this point, “Congratulations Master Lin, there’s a budding talent among your junior disciples.”
After hearing Shi Yu’s words, Lin Feng smiled, “You are too kind with your words, Comrade Shi. My junior disciples still need some training. They are still far off from being good.”
Huo Xiu suddenly said, “He has a strong killer aura.”
If others said something like this, he would be accused of trying to pick a fight. But since it was Huo Xiu, no one suspected him of doing so. Among all those present, regardless of their cultivation, he was among the top few with the fiercest killer aura.
Lin Feng smiled, “But I can’t give him to you. Don’t miss him too much.”
Huo Xiu shook his head and did not speak.
Everyone’s gaze scanned Xiao Yan and thought to themselves, “Will the Celestial Sect of Wonders produce such a merciless character in every generation?”
Following that, everyone looked at Yang Qing. As they looked at him, someone thought, “Zhou Yuncong is so brutal, but he is under someone like him. Don’t tell me that he is supposed to suppress Zhou Yuncong’s killer aura?”
The bunch of Immortal Soul Stage Elders were focused on Zhou Yuncong and his special talent. With his talent, it would not be wasted for him to be under the Celestial Sect of Wonders. His future was unlimited.
His deep talents would be converted into practical power and it was something that could not be stopped.
But as the leaders of their respective sects, the Immortal Soul Stage Elders were more focused on the bigger picture. They were observing the performances of everyone in the Starry Treasure Pagoda.
But the cultivators in the Dharma Hall were not peaceful.
Before this gathering, everyone was guessing whether the disciples of Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the rest could be as invincible as their elders.
Would the Celestial Sect of Wonders fall in their third generation or would they have successors?
The young cultivators from the other sects were also yearning to challenge the disciples of the Celestial Sect of Wonders and defeat them.
However, it seemed that the Celestial Sect of Wonders was as powerful as ever. Many of them were even worried for their own disciples.
For those inside the Starry Treasure Pagoda, they could not have known what was happening on the first level of the pagoda. They did not know that the person that they were mocking earlier on was now hot on their heels, even though he was lagging at the start.
His momentum caused some of the younger cultivators who were just spectators to feel the pressure and they almost couldn’t catch their breaths.
“Zhou Yuncong may be strong, but Lei Jie may not be weaker than him!” Someone from the Lei Clan muttered, “Lei Jie can win him, definitely!”
He kept on saying, until he frustrated the fellow clan members around him. “Naturally so. While Zhou Yuncong is strong, Lei Jie can definitely win him. This gathering organized by the Celestial Sect of Wonders is the stage for Lei Jie to shine!”
While he might say so, this Lei Clan disciple knew that this was not the case. He looked at the light projection, as if it gave him confidence, “This must be the case. Without Shi Tianyi, who else can steal Lei Jie’s glory?”
“Erm…Shi Tianhao is not counted, he…he is the Immediate Disciple of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. He can’t be counted! His juniors can’t match up to Lei Jie.”
In the light projection, there was a tall youth who seemed to be around 20 years old. His cultivation could be identified by those who were sharp. He was around as old as he looked.
This youth was charming and had a resilient look. He was advancing in the pagoda on his own and did not work with others. Those in the same group as him were far lagging behind him. They could not match up to his speed. The various obstacles and Wuyang beasts in the pagoda were settled by him.
Before Shi Tianhao and the rest from the Celestial Sect of Wonders rose, Lei Jie was recognized as only inferior to Shi Tianyi.
Two Wuyang beasts leaped behind him. Lei Jie did not stop and did not turn around either. Around his body, a bright green light flashed on his body. It was as if a lightning web had covered his entire body. As it came out very suddenly, the Wuyang beasts that leaped towards him could not dodge in time and they were electrified by the green light.
Lei Jie’s rhythm was not disturbed and he continued to move forward.
Inside the Grand Heavens Pavilion, Shi Yu witnessed all of this and did not speak. Whereas the Vivant Joy Holy Man looked at Lei Lie, “The Nine Qi True Thunder Form is indeed special. It is indeed as powerful as it has been claimed to be.”
Lei Lie looked at Lei Jie inside the pagoda and was comforted. But he still shook his head, “You are too kind with your words. Lei Jie still has a lot of weaknesses. He is arrogant and needs more training. Sorry to have made ourselves a laughing stock. Please forgive us.”
Although Lei Jie knew that the final result was dependent on his small group, he still continued to move on his forward.
At the same time, in the Central Great Pavilion, among the Foundational disciples, there was another youth who was around 15 years old. He looked calm and was observing Lei Jie.
The Foundational Disciples around him also glanced at him from time and time. They alternated between looking at him and Lei Jie.
That was because he looked very similar to Lei Jie. Everyone suspected that they were related to each other.
The youth looked at Lei Jie and retracted his gaze after a while. He then looked at the others in the pagoda.
Inside the pagoda, Lei Jie sensed something and shook his head slightly. He said to himself, “Even if you join the Celestial Sect of Wonders, I will still be stronger than you. I will prove that I’m the successful one. You are the failure!”
