Chapter 8: I Will Remember You!
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_, Yuui
The showdown between the two Foundation Establishment stage powerhouses came to a close as the old peach tree emerged victorious.
It first appeared weak to bait Ye Ge into advancing rashly before it wiped this Foundation Establishment stage cultivator of the Sword of Radiance Sect out with a finishing blow.
But the old peach tree had also paid a relatively big price; that brilliant red protective demonic aura of hers had also vanished.
Still, she was not what the injured Ye Ge and Co. could hope to defeat. Ye Ge and Co. hurriedly escaped.
Right at this moment, a powerful wave of mana fluctuations suddenly burst out from an unexpected direction. Lightning and thunder surged through the air, leaving people breathless.
Lin Feng’s face was pale and drenched in sweat.
The Northern Aurora Sword floated in the air above him. The sword was covered with arcs of lightning; sparks continuously jumped; crackling sounds could be heard as electric currents roared.
Lin Feng’s hand formed spell signs as he complained, “This thing consumes far too much mana but this is still far from enough.”
He felt like his mana was literally being sucked dry by the Northern Aurora Sword.
Lin Feng didn’t have a lot of chances. Now that the old peach tree has been heavily exhausted by Ye Ge, it was the best opportunity to defeat it. He must take advantage of this golden opportunity.
Suddenly, Lin Feng thought of something, “Oh right, how did I forget about that thing?”
He hurriedly took out the Heaven Thunder Moon Jade and attempted to draw out thunder energy from within it.
However, Lin Feng almost screwed up. The thunder essence in the Heaven Thunder Moon Jade was too immense and pure. As it flowed into Lin Feng’s body, it almost turned him into a piece of human charcoal.
Lin Feng’s entire body was covered by lightning. From top to bottom, his body was coursing with a dense blue and purple lightning aura.
Sparks flew out from his entire body. Even the hairs on his body could not help but blow up under the strong thunder energy.
At that crucial moment, Lin Feng circulated his Nine Heavens Thunder Technique to the extreme and linked his mind with the Northern Aurora Sword.
The colossal thunder energy finally found an outlet and immediately charged into the Northern Aurora Sword like a flood breaking through a dike.
Lin Feng carefully controlled the flow of the mana and spirit energy in his body, making himself the bridge between the Heaven Thunder Moon Jade and Northern Aurora Sword.
With the massive power supply of the Heaven Thunder Moon Jade, the Northern Aurora Sword instantly became energised. The lightning aura on the sword became increasingly condensed, transforming into a pure white aura. The Northern Aurora Sword itself turned into a lightsaber.
At the tip of the lightsaber, the lightning aura converged into a lightning ball. The ball became bigger, exhibiting a power of mass destruction. It was even stronger than the lightning which Lin Feng summoned using the Nine Heaven Thunder Summoning technique.
The scariness of this lightning ball could rival the light orb that the old peach tree created.
All this commotion by Lin Feng had alarmed the people in the battle as both sides stopped fighting in uncertainty. Even though they couldn’t see Lin Feng, they were all paying attention to the movement over at Lin Feng’s side.
Before they could react, Lin Feng had already released the ball of lightning.
An incredibly overbearing and powerful beam of dazzling lightning burst across the sky, striking the burnt old peach tree.
Northern Aurora Mystic Light!
The flowers of the old peach tree all shook violently. Boundless red mist and and an endless flower storm went to engage the Northern Aurora Mystic Light.
The lightning met the red mist and flower storm in mid-air. Time seemed to stop at that instant. It was clearly just an instant, yet it felt like a century had passed.
The flower storm and red mist slowly fragmented bit by bit, becoming specks of dust which was then swallowed by the lightning.
The enchanting flowers disintegrated, foot by foot, inch by inch.
The old peach tree which 8,9 meters tall with a diameter of a whole dozen meters was also covered in cracks like fractured porcelain.
Breaking! Disintegrating! Fracturing! Breaking again!
Countless pieces of wood charcoal fell onto the ground. The incredibly massive old peach tree was directly obliterated by Lin Feng’s Northern Aurora Mystic Light!
Ironically, it had already been struck by lightning before and it was now suffering yet another lightning calamity again.
Lin Feng saw the result of his one sword blow and let out a long sigh of relief. His mind felt a wave of weakness. He really did not have the ability to do it again.
A sea of thunder energy was poured into the Northern Aurora Sword through his body, causing his body to bear a huge burden. In particular, his heart was hit with constant waves of numbness.
But he quickly pulled himself together because he faintly saw that after the old peach tree was destroyed, there was a flashing white light.
It was just a split second but Lin Feng’s expression changed greatly.
There was a bare-footed woman wearing snow white clothes. She was breathtakingly beautiful. Lin Feng had never seen someone this beautiful in his life before.
Murong Yanran could be considered incredibly beautiful, but she was still a cut below this woman.
Her beauty lies in the absence of imperfections. Her beauty was breathtaking; her beauty was intoxicating; her beauty was inhuman…
But Lin Feng did not have the usual fiery feeling of seeing a beautiful woman.
Instead, he only felt a bone chilling coldness; his back was drenched in cold sweat.
The white-clothed woman had her hair loose, her entire body did not have any accessories but she revealed a tempting beauty.
Lin Feng felt her look over towards him. The same low and hoarse female voice sounded beside his ears.
“My name is Long Ye. Please remember it, because…”
Unlike her elegant and enchanting appearance, her voice was extremely deep. However, it had some sort of special allure which seemed to attract people.
But Lin Feng did not have any romantic or amorous thoughts because of the other half of the woman’s sentence.
“… because, I will always remember you!”
Finishing that sentence, her white figure disappeared in a flash, leaving behind the remains of the wrecked old peach tree.
Lin Feng brushed his nose. If she was still here, he would have really wanted to say, “Big sis, I hope that you do not have a good memory.”
It was a good thing to be remembered by a hot chick, but that definitely did not include Long Ye.
At this time, the crowd appeared as though they have woken up from a dream.
The villagers of Stone Village were all cheering in joy when Ye Ge had the advantage. Who knew that the situation would take a sudden turn for the worst and that the three people of the Sword of Radiance Sect would be defeated. Right when the people were in a panic, a bolt of lightning suddenly came from the sky and directly killed the tree demon.
When the villagers finally returned to their senses, many of them cried from joy. One by one, they kowtowed in the direct that the lightning was released from.
Ye Ge and Co. who had escaped for a while were also dumbstruck at this moment. The white-robed youth said angrily, “Isn’t this guy a bit too opportunistic? Only attacking after Elder Ye had almost taken that tree demon down.”
Ye Ge shook his head, “Seeing the power of that lightning, that person’s strength is only above mine..”
Murong Yanran said hesitantly, “Should we go back and take a look?”
Suddenly, a hostile aura came over from the direction of the lightning; powerful mana fluctuations sprang up once again.
Ye Ge and co. all had an unhappy look. The white-robed youth said furiously, ” He actually dares to provoke us, the Sword of Radiance Sect?”
Murong Yanran glared at him, “Elder Ye is currently hurt, we can only let him be cocky.”
“Forget it, let’s go. In any case, the tree demon has been eliminated.” Ye Ge sighed and looked towards Murong Yanran, “It’s just that we’ll need to rest for a period of time. I can only accompany you to the Wu Zhou Province and the Xiao family after I’ve recovered.”
Murong Yanran hurriedly said, “Of course, your well-being is more important.”
Managing to scare off Murong Yanran and Co., Lin Feng let out a breath of relief. He looked towards Xiao Budian as his heart instantly became fervent, “Finally! It is almost the time to harvest!”
As for any future trouble by Long Ye, Lin Feng could only put it in the back of his mind. Right now, all of his thoughts were about how he was finally about to have his first disciple.
Hurriedly changing into the Taoist clothing and reverting back to a sage-like master appearance, Lin Feng snuck back to the elder’s house. He found the most comfortable position and then sat in the elder’s house yard, quietly waiting for Xiao Budian to return.
After a moment, a group of people followed the elder and Xiao Budian into the yard. They were going to discuss the matters of taking care of the aftermath.
Who knew that after entering the door, he would see Lin Feng looking carefree and content, sitting cross-legged with a magic sword placed horizontally across his knees. The lightning arcs that occasionally jumped on the magic sword blinded them.
Xiao Budian was the first to react, “Mr Taoist, it was you that got rid of that old peach tree?”
Lin Feng lightly smiled but did not speak.
Recalling about the talisman which allowed Xiao Budian to summon lightning and seeing the Northern Aurora Sword on Lin Feng’s knees, the Stone Village villagers connected Lin Feng to the miraculous lightning strike that destroyed the old peach tree and immediately started cheering.
Everyone looked at Lin Feng in reverence; all of them kneeled down and thanked Lin Feng for saving them.
Even with the thickness of Lin Feng’s skin, he still felt embarrassed. But he still needed to act like a sage so he had to force himself to hold it it.
The old elder also walked over and thanked Lin Feng. After thanking him, he seemed to have something to say as his gaze hesitantly shifted between Lin Feng and Xiao Budian.
Lin Feng looked indifferent, but the corners of his eyes were looking at Xiao Budian the entire time. In his heart, he was calling out affectionately.
“Xiao Budian, hurry up and come into master’s embrace.”
