Chapter 795: Returning to Kunlun
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
After Lin Feng pondered for a moment, he had a complete train of thought in his mind, “Oh, if I want to test my hypothesis, it seems like I have to wait for a while.”
After keeping the disc, which was called the Reincarnation Disc, Lin Feng retrieved another piece of Voice-Projecting Crystal. He crushed it and Yan Mingyue’s voice resonated from within, “Congratulations Master Lin on obtaining the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain.”
Lin Feng smiled, “It’s a good thing for me, but it may not be so for you.”
Yan Mingyue laughed too, “How can everything go according to plan? The error in the Great Zhou’s plan is also something we all can’t do anything about.”
Mount Yujing revealed itself in void space. A streak of purple light extended into the distance. Two human figures landed on the purple light and they were guided to the top of the mountain.
One of them was Yan Mingyue, while the other person was a little out of Lin Feng’s expectations. It was Miao Shihao.
What made Lin Feng thought was interesting was that Miao Shihao, who had always detested the Great Void Sect cultivators, was now standing beside Yan Mingyue. He did not look disgusted, but he looked serious. He seemed to be thinking about something and was a little distracted.
After ascending Mount Yujing, Miao Shihao regained his awareness and looked at Lin Feng. His eyes shone, “Master…”
Lin Feng did not wait for him to speak finish and threw something over. Miao Shihao caught it in his hands. It was a piece of jade pendant.
This jade pendant was slightly special. It seemed like a solid material, but was actually like flowing water, as it kept on changing its shape. At times, it was like a round moon, but at times, it was like a crescent.
A piece of jade pendant kept on transforming and changing its shape.
“Flawed jade pendant.” Miao Shihao nodded his head. This was something that he wanted. It was a special resource that was indigenous to the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain.
Miao Shihao was not too rushed in obtaining it. He kept it and continued to stare at Lin Feng. “Master Lin, I have been looking for you very hard.”
Lin Feng pursed his lips and ignored Miao Shihao. He knew that the more he bothered with him, the more nonsense he would come up with.
Miao Shihao was not upset too. He smiled, “Forget it, I shall chat with you later.”
He turned to look at Yan Mingyue and his smile disappeared. He said, “You have told me a lot this time and it has indeed benefited me quite a bit. But I shall not thank you.”
Yan Mingyue pushed the streak of hair on her ears back and smiled, “You are too kind. I hope you can reach the Immortal Soul Stage soon.”
Miao Shihao raised his brows. He walked towards one side and retrieved an exquisite file. He started to file his own nails.
Yan Mingyue turned to look at Lin Feng now, “Master Lin, when the conflict in Ying Sea was going on, there were some changes in the Divine Lands that are worth paying attention to.”
“Oh?” Lin Feng asked, “What happened?”
Yan Mingyue said, “The Path of the Heaven-Born, Path of Hungry Ghoul and Path of Beast collaborated to make it seem like they were coming to the Ying Sea. The Path of Asura, Path of Hell and the Path of Humanity tried to exploit this situation by attacking the seemingly empty fort of the Path of the Heaven-Born.”
“Eventually, they all fell into the trap and suffered greatly.”
“Now, the Path of Heaven-Born, Path of Hungry Ghoul and the Path of Beast have started to counter-attack. They were already in a leading position in the internal conflict within the Samsara Sect. But now, they are likely to become victorious.”
Lin Feng’s expression did not change, “The conflict has been ongoing for some time. How did the three Paths fall into the trap so easily?”
“Forgetting the others, the leader of the Path of Humanity, Zhang Enrui, has been involved in countless conflicts. Although he is not versed in gambling, he is also not one to be greedy. How could he have been so careless?”
Yan Mingyue shook her head gently, “I only heard it from my senior. As for the details, I am unsure.”
Lin Feng laughed, “Is the Great Void Sect not going to care?”
“All thanks to you, Master Lin, the Divine Lands has seen the rise of a Samsara Sect that is going to be unified. This may not be a bad thing for the Great Void Sect.” Yan Mingyue laughed lightly, “As long as no Immortal Soul Stage Elders perish, the Great Void Sect will not bother.”
Lin Feng shook his head, “I believe even if an Immortal Soul Stage Elder perishes, as long as the consequence is not too serious, the Great Void Sect won’t bother?”
“To be like the past, the Great Void Sect has to wait till they control the situation first.”
“This is not purely because of me. You have also contributed greatly.”
Yan Mingyue laughed. She revealed a rare cheeky look, “I am an unfilial disciple. I am about to be expelled from the sect.”
Lin Feng thought that it was nonsense. For Yun Yuanzhen to make a move, many problems must have arisen.
But it’s just that the direction in which Yun Yuanzhen, Yan Mingyue and the rest proceeded in was unlikely to be followed by the leader of the Great Void Sect immediately. It should still be in the midst of testing and observation. Otherwise, the Great Void Sect would not watch as the Samsara Sect became more unified under one rule.
For the Samsara Sect to come under one rule, as compared to the rest of the Divine Lands, the Great Zhou Empire would be the most concerned. Both parties were neighbors. They were only separated by the Great Swamp of the Ancient Regions. In the past, they had quite a few conflicts.
If such a situation in the Divine Lands happened in the past, the Great Zhou Empire would not watch and wait for things to happen.
But now, the Great Zhou Empire was dealt a huge blow because of the Ying Sea matter. The Celestial Sect of Wonders took control of the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain while the Great Qin Empire clamped down on them. They could not act as brazen as before. The Samsara Sect had no better opportunity than now.
How did the Path of the Heaven-Born manage to predict the future and know that the Great Zhou would get into trouble at the Ying Sea?
They exploited this time to make a move. There must be some insider news.
Lin Feng looked at Yan Mingyue. She remained calm and her expression did not change.
After they finished discussing serious matters, they chatted leisurely for a while. After that, Yan Mingyue bade goodbye and left the mountain.
Lin Feng watched as she left. Miao Shihao finally spoke now, “Master, Yan Mingyue is no longer with the Conservative Faction of the Great Void Sect. But she does not seem to be affiliated so closely with the Great Zhou. What does she want?”
“Her, or rather, they want to create a new path between the Conservative and Radical Faction of the Great Void Sect.” Lin Feng replied. “In this process, she, the Conservative Faction and the Radical Faction have their own personal agendas and plans. At times when their ideals converge, they will work together. At times when they have conflicts, it depends on whose tactics are more brilliant.”
“As things change, the end result will change too. Maybe they are working with the Conservative Faction to suppress the Radical Faction. Or maybe they are working with the Radical Faction against the Conservative Faction.”
“At times, the Conservative and Radical Factions may come together to control them. Things may happen.”
Lin Feng smiled, “During the battle at Xiling City, they worked with the Conservative Faction to help me restrain the Radical Faction. But in a blink of an eye, the Radical Faction, Yan Mingyue & the rest, the Great Zhou Empire and I myself collaborated to overthrow the system that the Conservative Faction had on the Divine Lands.”
“Collaboration and conflict change all the time. Many times, it is very common to see agreement and disagreement over a certain matter.”
Miao Shihao gave a thoughtful look, “Yan Mingyue is playing this very big. Even Yun Yuanzhen cannot back her up. Don’t tell me there’s the Qing Yi Holy Woman?”
The current master-disciple relationships in the Great Void Sect that were publicly known were: Tai Yi Holy Man & Yan Nanlai, Yan Nanlai & Lin Daohan and Lin Daohan & Chen Xingyu.
The Zheng Yi Holy Man passed on his skills to Kuang Heng who passed on to Shi Tianyi.
The Qing Yi Holy Woman passed on her skills to Yun Yuanzhen who passed on her skills to Yan Mingyue.
As for the Xuan Yi Holy Man, his disciples were unknown. The Xuan Lin Holy Man and the Elegant Cloud Holy Woman came from the same Master, the Yan Yi Holy Man. But he had already perished for many years. The Xuan Lin Holy Man then passed on his skills to Pang Jie.
Besides these, the Tai Yi, Zheng Yi, Qing Yi and the rest did not just have Yan Nanlai, Kuang Heng, Yun Yuanzhen and the rest as their successors. But it’s just that it was difficult for people to spy on the situation on Mount Baiyun. Many things were kept a secret.
Lin Feng laughed, “This may be unknown. There are still many things we don’t know.”
For example, was it Yan Mingyue who suggested everything and got the backing of those behind her, or did she follow the wishes of those backing her?
Miao Shihao pondered for a moment and shook his head, “Forget it, let’s not think about him.”
He lifted his head to look at Lin Feng, “Master Lin, Yan Mingyue told me something just now…”
Miao Shihao became more serious. Lin Feng listened to him as he repeated everything from head to toe. He displayed a look of contemplation too, “This is quite similar to what I expected, but there are also things that are beyond my expectations.”
“What are your plans?” Lin Feng asked. Miao Shihao’s eyes drooped and he answered, “I shall wait till I form the Immortal Soul. After that, I will find a successor and teach him.”
“I hope Master Lin can take care of my successor too.”
Lin Feng nodded his head, “You can rest assure. As for the thing that you are finding, those from the sect can help you.”
Miao Shihao laughed and looked at Lin Feng, “Master Lin, I know that you have been missing me all this while.”
Lin Feng’s lips spazzed a little, “I knew that if we talk longer, you will become abnormal again.”
After sending Miao Shihao off, Lin Feng shook his head and commanded Mount Yujing to leave the Ying Sea and return to Mount Kunlun.
On Yingzhou Celestial Mountain, the Avatar of Ares was holding the fort. Whereas the Penglai Celestial Mountain was controlled by the Thunder Dragon avatar. As time passed, the Illusory Sea Tide was about to explode out.
Lin Feng commanded Mount Yujing to re-surface in the Divine Lands. He thought, “After obtaining the Starry Purplish Grass Pill, the ingredients for cultivating the Trāyastriṃśa Elixir of Creation will be all be complete.”
