Chapter 791: Terms that Can’t be Rejected
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Lin Feng’s fingertip flashed with a radiance and he smiled while saying, “The Instant Sword of Radiance swordplay of the Sword of Radiance Sect contains a deep understanding of the true meaning of an instant. But there is still something lacking. I analyzed the Instant Heavenly Gravel and referenced to the Eternal Glow, obtaining some valuable information in the process. I wonder if Comrade Shi will like to know?”
Initially, the Great Qin Empire was prepared to challenge the Celestial Sect of Wonders for the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain. But since there was only one of it, it was not easy to allocate the benefits. Lin Feng had a better idea himself, thus no agreement was formed. But now a magic treasure embryo in the destiny realm had appeared. The situation was different now.
Over at the Divine Lands, the Great Qin Empire had no more chance. Even if Shi Yu immediately sent the Immortal Dragon City to reinforce the attack, it would be of no use too. The Great Void Sect did not just have Yun Yuanzhen.
Yan Mingyue and Yun Yuanzhen’s actions were in line with the thinking of the Conservative Faction of the Great Void Sect. Thus, if they needed more help, they could borrow from them.
However, because of personal reasons, the Great Void Sect would not take the initiative to attack.
Under such a circumstance, the target of the Great Qin Empire was certainly bound to be the Ying Sea again. Lin Feng had enough reason to believe that Prince Gunyang and the rest were rushing over to the Ying Sea now.
Given that Shi Yu had always been very meticulous, another Immortal Soul Third Level Elder of the Great Qin, Prince Nanming, Shi Zongtang, would continue to hold the fort at Xiling City. But this was difficult to tell too.
To the Great Qin Empire, the ideal result was to collaborate with the Celestial Sect of Wonders and force the Great Zhou to leave. As for the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain and white jade pillar, they could each take one.
If they could deal a huge blow to the Great Zhou Empire, that would be good.
But to Lin Feng, he was determined to get both the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain and the white jade pillar. However, if he was going to do this, it was a very irksome thing to the others.
Everyone knew that if one could challenge the whole world, it might sound very enjoyable and domineering. But even if he had the power to, if there was no need to, Lin Feng would not do so. That was because it was very tiring. If he could complete the task easily, Lin Feng would not try to make it more difficult for himself.
He loved to reduce the difficulty of the tasks that he did and tried not to compromise the principles of others. He wanted to unite more people and gain more friends. When there were less enemies, everything would be smoother.
He wanted to seize both the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain and the magic treasure embryo this time, but he had to pay a price naturally.
The new Instantaneous Glow that Lin Feng cultivated was the price he was willing to pay.
In fact, three years ago in the Greater World, after the Immortal Dragon City was fully cultivated, Lin Feng had already recognized the importance of the secrets of the instance of time, as he faced the Eternal Glow.
The rules that the Great Void Sect ceased to exist anymore. Unless there were weird movements in the Barren Expanses that gave pressure to the human cultivators, there was bound to be conflicts between the different powers as well as schemes to usurp power in the human cultivation world.
For example, the Great Qin Empire had already been eyeing the art of swordplay of the Sword of Radiance Sect. However, after the battle at Xiling City, the Sword of Radiance Sect got close to the Celestial Sect of Wonders. With the external pressure of the demon clan as well as the internal protection of the Celestial Sect of Wonders, the Great Qin Empire could not make a move so easily.
Adding on with what Lin Feng said, the Instant Sword of Radiance swordplay of the Sword of Radiance Sect was still a little bit off from the requirements of the Great Qin Empire. That was why the Great Qin Empire died down their interest after a while.
Not long ago, Lin Feng consolidated the powers of Mount Yujing and figured out the Instant Heavenly Gravel of the Sword of Radiance Sect. He managed to cultivate the corresponding Instantaneous Glow to the Eternal Glow. Although it was only a prototype, and seemed a little simple as compared to the Eternal Glow of the Immortal Dragon City, in terms of power concept, it was enough to raise the attention of Shi Yu.
When the Great Qin Empire tried to figure out the Eternal Glow, they achieved a lot of understanding on the power concept of time. But they could not unravel the secrets of the instance of time. They were only a little off from understanding. If they obtained Lin Feng’s Instantaneous Glow, they did not have to spend so much effort in trying to understand it anymore. The road in front was clear for them to proceed.
If the Immortal Dragon City obtained the Instantaneous Glow, its powers were bound to increase. Furthermore, it would be a substantial increase.
Shi Yu stood above the Immortal Dragon City and revealed a smile on his face. When it came to Lin Feng’s and his level, a small hint could lead to chemistry between each other.
With the current situation, the Great Qin Empire could never cooperate with the Great Zhou Empire. Although there were only Liang Pan and the Imperial Palace now, Zhu Hongwu and the Great Heavenly Wheels were already on the way. They could be here anytime.
As three magic treasures in the destiny realm combined, they might be able to defeat Lin Feng. But after that, when the Great Qin and Great Zhou clashed, most of the benefits were likely to land in the hands of the Great Zhou Empire. As compared to the Celestial Sect of Wonders claiming everything to them, this was a situation that was more unacceptable to the Great Qin Empire.
But if they let the Celestial Sect of Wonders enjoy all the benefits, Shi Yu would not agree naturally. He guided the Immortal Dragon City in a weird movement previously to test what was Lin Feng’s reaction.
When it came to Lin Feng, Shi Yu and Liang Pan’s level, besides unresolved conflicts between one another, they were also unable to become friends forever. But they were not enemies forever too. There were only profits in their minds.
As long as they had a certain chip in their hands, they could do what they wanted to do and lay their schemes. As to whether they would succeed or how much rewards they would reaped, it depended on whose plan was the most genius and who had the most chips.
More accurately speaking, even if they were arch-enemies that could not resolve their conflicts, there would be certain times when they had to work together.
However, the conflict between the Great Qin and Great Zhou was too deep. They were distrustful of each other to a great extent. They would not collaborate unless it was extremely necessary.
But if there was a better choice, Shi Yu would not collaborate with the Great Zhou Empire.
This point was also recognized by Lin Feng, that was why he laid down his price.
To Lin Feng, Shi Yu and the rest, the best would be for mutual benefits to be reaped.
“You are very sharp. You have come up with terms that I can’t reject.” Shi Yu looked at the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain and felt the aura of destiny from the white jade pillar inside. He shook his head gradually.
Lin Feng passed the Instantaneous Glow to him. This was not damaging to him, as he was just sharing the Instantaneous Glow.
But the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain and the white jade pillar had both landed in the hands of the Celestial Sect of Wonders now.
The matter of the Ying Sea had come to an end finally. The Celestial Sect of Wonders and the Great Qin Empire would interact again in the future. With Lin Feng’s character and temperament, he would give some welfare to the Great Qin Empire in terms of resources and continue to make amends. But the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain and the white jade pillar were the two things that he won’t give up.
But to the Great Qin, since they obtained the Instantaneous Glow, this was not a wasted trip.
At the same time, they possessed both the Eternal Glow and Instantaneous Glow. This would enable the Immortal Dragon City to boost its power concept of time. A new abhijna could be birthed, which might not be inferior to the Heaven Extreme Universal Light of Mount Yujing.
However, for the Celestial Sect of Wonders, their powers would increase even more.
But this was the best choice that the Great Qin Empire could make right now. It was better than letting the Great Zhou Empire benefit.
Furthermore, as the Celestial Sect of Wonders and the Great Qin Empire combined together, the Great Zhou Empire might not have just lost the Fangzhang Celestial Mountain on this trip!
As Lin Feng flicked his fingers, the Instantaneous Glow landed in the Immortal Dragon City. Shi Yu received it and the Immortal Dragon City started to shine, as if a layer of light was covering it.
On the walls of the Immortal Dragon City, the radiance disappeared gradually. But this did not reveal its weakness, but revealed a stronger and more miraculous power concept. It was as if a long river of time was bursting forward.
And at the same time, the Imperial Palace exploded with a frightening strength.
Boundless radiance spread and the purplish-golden color dissipated. What remained was only a pure and primitive light.
Inside this light, a huge ball of chaos could be subtly seen. It was extremely unstable and kept on jerking, twisting and changing shape.
An immense power concept that left Shi Yu and Lin Feng stunned was unleashed. In the next moment, a huge spatial crack appeared on the ball of chaos.
As this crack appeared, the immense strength seemed to tear the Greater World into half. The entire space of the Ying Sea jerked, and even the external worlds started to shake.
The earth-shaking strength tore the Heaven Extreme Universal Light apart!
Lin Feng and Shi Yu stared at that crack and shouted at the same time, “Extreme Emperor Heaven-Splitting Mantra!”
At the end of the Primordial Age, the human race rose to resist the demons. Ever since Emperor Shi, they kept on resisting. As the war carried on for many years, many powerful cultivators rose and perished.
It was only till the Great Void Holy Man and Emperor Tai combined forces and caused a destructive war did the rule of humans by the demons end.
That was a true collapse of the Heavens and Earth. The Grand Celestial World was torn into half and converted into the Barren Expanses and Divine Lands. The demons and humans occupied these places respectively.
Emperor Tai also became the last human emperor of the Primordial Age. He was also the first human emperor of the Antiquity Age.
The Extreme Emperor Heaven-Splitting Mantra was different from Lin Feng’s Original Heaven and Earth Splitting Mantra. It was deduced by Emperor Tai himself. When the Heavens and Earth collapsed, he witnessed everything and comprehended the powerful way concepts of life creation and destruction. Eventually, he created the Extreme Emperor Heaven-Splitting Mantra.
As compared to Lin Feng’s Original Heaven and Earth Splitting Mantra, the Extreme Emperor Heaven-Splitting Mantra was more domineering and destructive. It was also more intense!
Liang Pan did not even need to wait for Shi Yu and Lin Feng to reach an agreement. When he saw the Instantaneous Glow, he made his mind up to regain his movement.
Lin Feng could only give the white jade pillar to Shi Yu at most. He wouldn’t give both the white jade pillar and Yingzhou Celestial Mountain to the Great Qin Empire.
The Instantaneous Glow could allow the Immortal Dragon City to be boosted greatly. Although its value was lower than the white jade pillar, sharing the benefits with the Celestial Sect of Wonders was better than sharing the benefits with the Great Zhou Empire. To Shi Yu, there wasn’t even a choice he had to make.
The collaboration of the Great Qin Empire and the Celestial Sect of Wonders was a huge threat to Liang Pan and the Imperial Palace before Zhu Hongwu and the Great Heavenly Wheels arrived. If Lin Feng could cultivate the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain in time, Liang Pan would be in graver danger.
Hence, as he saw the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain, Liang Pan did not hesitate anymore. He did not conserve anymore. Whatever price he had to pay, he needed to leave as quickly as possible.
Lin Feng said, “The Imperial Palace inherited the Extreme Emperor Heaven-Splitting Mantra. This is not too surprising. But the Imperial Palace is not unleashing the mantra in its peak state. Not only is the might of the mantra greatly reduced, it is also harmful towards the Imperial Palace.”
“However, so what if it’s the Extreme Emperor Heaven-Splitting Mantra?”
Lin Feng conjured a spell with both his hands. As they clasped, the Purple Clouds on Mount Yujing revolved and the leaves of the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree shook.
The Heaven Extreme Universal Light reformed again and covered the Imperial Palace again!
And it was even more powerful than before!
Liang Pan had been controlling himself. To guard against Shi Yu and the Immortal Dragon City, Lin Feng did not use his full strength earlier.
