Chapter 792: Zhu Hongwu Who Can’t Make it in Time
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
As he was trapped by the Heaven Extreme Universal Light Again, Liang Pan remained calm, “It’s a pity that the Imperial Palace can’t restore to its peak state yet.”
He was in the Golden Hill Grand Pavilion inside the Imperial Palace. Around him, purple gas started to flow. A royal stature was unveiled. Among the purple gas, there was a sense of might and dominance. A human figure that resembled a ruler appeared.
Liang Pan’s Royal Purple Gas that he inherited from Emperor Tai appeared. The stature of the Imperial Palace was boosted and the purplish-golden radiance surrounding it became stronger and stronger.
A huge purplish human figure appeared in the Imperial Palace subtly. He looked fierce, as if the late Emperor Tai had reborn.
The immense power shook the Heavens and Earth. The ball of chaos formed from the Extreme Emperor Heaven-Splitting Mantra cracked completely at this point.
The ball of chaos split into half. Each of these broken halves then reformed into a smaller, complete ball.
This instantaneous process re-enacted the scene where the Grand Celestial World split to form the Divine Lands and the Barren Expanses.
Boundless spiritual energy was destroyed and the huge spatial boundaries started to be torn apart.
Liang Pan used the Imperial Palace to summon the powers of the Extreme Emperor Heaven-Splitting Mantra to the fullest. The space of the Ying Sea jerked tremendously.
Void space kept on cracking. Through the cracks, Lin Feng and Shi Yu could see the dark universe filled with stars.
The Extreme Emperor Heaven-Splitting Mantra tore a huge crack in the spatial boundaries of the Ying Sea.
This immense strength tore the Heaven Extreme Universal Light of Mount Yujing apart again
However, it was obvious that the various light projections on the Imperial Palace were slowly collapsing. It was as if countless bubbles were being popped.
It’s a pity that even though the Heaven Extreme Universal Light had been overcome, there was still Shi Yu and the Immortal Dragon City.
Just like an all-conquering wall, the Immortal Dragon City came crashing down on the Imperial Palace.
And Lin Feng summoned Mount Yujing to proceed forward again, as they surrounded and attacked the Imperial Palace.
But at this point, Lin Feng, Liang Pan and Shi Yu felt something. They looked at the sea region far away.
They did not see anything that was worth catching their attention.
But they soon heard the voices of a cicada ringing in their ears.
Lin Feng’s pupils shrank and he saw a cicada rising with the waves in a blue sea far away.
That cicada was like a leaf. Even if someone was standing in front of it, they might not even notice it. But Lin Feng could see it clearly.
The cicada was shining with a golden radiance. In the next moment, a young monk in a grey robe appeared in the light. It was the Golden Cicada Master. He clasped his palms while smiling at Lin Feng, “Master Lin, you have really opened my eyes to the world. I am impressed.
“I may have made some arrangements, but I am unable to be like Master Lin and determine where to go. I am sorry for making myself a laughing stock.”
“It took me a while to rush back to the Ying Sea, but it was somewhere near here. I believe that things at Penglai Celestial Mountain should be settled, thus I rushed over here. I apologize for anything rude that I did.”
He spoke very politely, but his actions were not slow. As he stepped out, he was about to ascend the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain.
For someone in the Vipralopa state like him, he was not just powerful in terms of his strength. He also had many tricks up his sleeves. Even Lin Feng was slightly surprised. He did not expect that the Golden Cicada Master would arrive earlier than Zhu Hongwu.
This person had the powers and method to transcend boundaries and he even had a pretty crude method of finding a specific location. That was why he was able to rush over so quickly. But as he mentioned, the place where he landed was a little far from the southern region of the Ying Sea and was closer to the north-eastern part of the Ying Sea.
As he returned to the Ying Sea, he felt the movement of the Illusory Sea Tide at the southern region of the Ying Sea. He knew that he could no longer count on the Penglai Celestial Mountain, thus he decided to come over to the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain.
He had no interest in saving Liang Pan. His target was the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain.
Before Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares cultivated the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain, once the Golden Cicada Master was allowed to ascend the mountain, no one could stop him anymore. Zhu Yi controlled the white jade pillar, which allowed him to suppress the others, but it was useless in front of the Golden Cicada Master.
Lin Feng looked calm, “Master, you have travelled a long way. I believe that you are tired. Please get some rest first.”
As he said, there was a sudden flash of radiance on Mount Yujing. The Heaven Extreme Universal Light descended towards the Golden Cicada Master and was about to cover the Golden Cicada Master.
The Golden Cicada Master turned to look at Lin Feng and he said, “I have not asked before, but how many Power-Destroying Catastrophes can you receive, Master Lin?”
As he said, the voices of cicadas filled the Heavens and Earth. A light projection of a huge cicada was revealed above the head of the Golden Cicada Master. Suddenly, a streak of black gas on the body of the huge cicada converted into a black line and shot towards Lin Feng and Mount Yujing!
Five Decays of Heaven and Man, Power-Destroying Catastrophe!
To prevent getting shifted by Lin Feng’s Barrier-Breaking Stone again, the Golden Cicada Master decided not to use any abhijnas this time. He just unleashed the Power-Destroying Catastrophe at Lin Feng. He did not care about its power, but was confirming his target.
Wherever the black gas passed, even the Heaven Extreme Universal Light started to decay and destruct.
All matter in the Heavens and Earth walked towards destruction under the violation of time. The only variable was the speed.
But as the world walked towards its end and received destruction, all matter became nothing. Even time ceased to exist. The next cycle of destiny was awaited and everything would restart again.
Without Lin Feng and Mount Yujing repressing him, Liang Pan fought Shi Yu alone. The purplish-golden radiance above the Imperial Palace turned to purple suddenly.
Countless ancient and mysterious runes with unclear meanings appeared on the light projection of Emperor Tai’s spirit above the Imperial Palace.
As Shi Yu saw this, he creased his brows, “You are only concerned with the short-term benefit, are you not afraid that the Imperial Palace will fall apart?” He might say so, but if he was in Liang Pan’s position, he would most certainly do the same thing.
Above the Immortal Dragon City, radiances were flashing. Suddenly, nine light spots shone. Seven were bright and two were dim.
Above the Ying Sea, an illusory crack appeared, revealing the stars in the universe. The nine luminaries shone together and the immense force supplemented the Immortal Dragon City.
As the two magic treasures clashed again, the Immortal Dragon City was pushed back and above the Imperial Palace, the light projection of Emperor Tai’s spirit was almost crushed.
Taking this opportunity, the Imperial Palace converted into a streak of purple light, as it escaped into the horizon.
The Immortal Dragon City followed closely and did not give the opponent any breathing space.
Above the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain on the other side, Lin Feng’s expression remained the same as he sat on Mount Yujing. “How many Power-Catastrophes can you take then, Master?”
As he said, the leaves of the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree started to sway furiously. Many of these leaves even fell off from the branches.
These jade-green leaves converted into streaks and streaks of rainbow radiances in mid-space, which revolved around Mount Yujing. The entire Mount Yujing was dragged into void space.
The Power-Destroying Catastrophe of the Golden Cicada Master landed nowhere!
“Oh?” The Golden Cicada Master was shocked. As he looked at Mount Yujing, he saw that it appeared and disappeared in void space. He could clearly see it, but he lost all sense of it.
Once the Power-Destroying Catastrophe was initiated, it was not possible for the opponent to hide in void space to avoid it. This was a destructive power that could end the world and initiated the five decays in the opponent. At the same time, the cultivator unleashing it would also experience the Power-Destroying Catastrophe.
But right now, the Golden Cicada Master was experiencing the Power-Destroying Catastrophe, whereas Lin Feng and Mount Yujing avoided it.
The gaze of the Golden Cicada Master landed on the swaying Black Heavenly Treasure Tree, “It’s not the mountain rocks, but the brilliance of that magic tree…”
In the next instant, rings and rings of radiances that revolved around Mount Yujing had disappeared. Lin Feng and Mount Yujing revealed themselves. The huge sword casket of the Heaven-Destroying Sword was erected beside Lin Feng. As Lin Feng tapped it, a ferocious, clear light shot into the skies and the Heaven-Destroying Sword landed in Lin Feng’s hands.
The Golden Cicada Master recited a Buddhist chant and the light projection of the huge cicada above his head moved its wings. Streaks and streaks of dark light filled the skies to receive Lin Feng’s Heaven-Destroying Sword radiance.
But his path was stopped by Lin Feng and he could not ascend the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain.
This slight delay caused the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain to jerk tremendously. The originally collapsed Nameless Ancient Formation reformed and was about to cover the mountain again.
As the Golden Cicada Master saw this, he knew that the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain had been cultivated. The vibration of that power was similar to Lin Feng.
Thus, he quickly turned around and escaped. He did not want Lin Feng to command the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain and tap on the power of the Ying Sea to surround him.
At the same time, a light wheel rose from the sea far away. The clouds above the Ying Sea could not hide its radiance. In the next moment, the wheel had already arrived close and attacked the Immortal Dragon City!
Even with Shi Yu’s cultivation, as he stood on the Immortal Dragon City and faced this radiance of the wheel, he could not help but feel a sense of death.
“Great Heavenly Wheels…Zhu Hongwu, you are too late.” Shi Yu turned to the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain. He revealed a slightly complex expression. He commanded the Immortal Dragon City which clashed with the Great Heavenly Wheels.
On Yingzhou Celestial Mountain, as they felt that the Nameless Ancient Formation had reformed, the Great Zhou and Great Qin cultivators also realized that the mountain had been cultivated by someone. They did not dare to stay for any longer. They quickly escaped.
The light wheel gradually shrank and revealed Zhu Hongwu’s figure. He dragged the cultivators from the Great Zhou Empire and stared at Mount Yujing and Yingzhou Celestial Mountain expressionlessly.
Behind the radiance of the Great Heavenly Wheels, the Imperial Palace was revealed. But the previously mighty Imperial Palace seemed to be on a decline now.
Inside the palace, Liang Pan looked at Mount Yujing expressionlessly too. “Let’s go, Hongwu. We can’t handle things anymore.”
The Illusory Sea Tide that had been initiated was already coming closer and closer. As the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain came into contact with the Illusory Sea Tide, it would hide itself naturally. Whereas Lin Feng and Mount Yujing could hide themselves in void space and disappear.
Even if they did not leave, Lin Feng’s Mount Yujing & Yingzhou Celestial Mountain along with Shi Yu were still able to deal with the Imperial Palace, Great Heavenly Wheels and the Golden Cicada Master. Furthermore, the relationship between the Golden Cicada Master and the Great Zhou might not be better than that between the Great Zhou and Great Qin Empire.
To attack or to spare them, Lin Feng had the power to decide.
“Yes! Your! Majesty!” Zhu Hongwu’s gaze flashed with a radiance and he answered word by word.
Although he was determined, as he was powerless to decided, he felt in low spirits.
He labored across half the Ying Sea to reinforce Liang Pan and finally arrived, but everything had been settled already. There was nothing for him to do anymore. All his efforts were wasted.
