Chapter 802: Playing It Too Big
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
In the face of discrimination, Xuan Li revealed herself and stared at the alternate plane of space on the other side of the door expressionlessly. Her eyes started to shine with red light.
But the alternate plane of space became even more intense in its rejection of the sword. It was even about to expand its influence and suppress Xuan Li.
The auras of both parties conflicted. The red light in Xuan Li’s eyes became more and more intense, but Lin Feng gestured for her to stop.
Before the blade of the sword was fully sharpened, Xuan Li was not powerful enough.
The power of the alternate plane of space was unleashed suddenly, causing Xuan Li and the sword casket of the Heavenly-Destroying Sword to retreat. They did not return to the Penglai Celestial Mountain. On the other hand, they transcended void space and returned to the Heavenly Cosmic Ray World on Mount Yujing.
A ferocious, clear light surged from the opening of the sword casket, as if it wanted to tear apart the entire Heavenly Cosmic Ray World. The Heaven-Destroying Sword was in an extremely enraged mode.
As Lin Feng saw this, his pupils shrank slightly. As he thought of something, he stopped the violent movement of the Heaven-Destroying Sword, causing it to quieten down.
But his gaze stared at the door in front of him, “Just now, the Heaven-Destroying Sword was jerked all the way back to Mount Yujing, but it did not pass through me. On the other hand, it transcended void space and reached there. It did not even seem to be far, as if Mount Yujing is close to this door.”
In layers and layers of void space, as space was disrupted, even for someone as well-versed in the manipulation of space as Lin Feng would take some time to travel if the distance was far. Moreover, the Ying Sea was also another alternate plane of space, separated from the Divine Lands by the powers of the boundaries.
But this weird alternate plane of space right in front of him right now seemed to be omnipresent. The door could exist in the Penglai Celestial Mountain, but it could also exist anywhere else in the Divine Lands.
Just now, this alternate plane of space’s rejection of the sword was strong. Its spiritual energy exploded suddenly. The impact was far-reaching and vast, but at the same time, the energy felt extremely pure and cultivated.
Even such a nourishing spiritual energy could not be found on Mount Yujing. The purity of the spiritual energy was the highest ever since Lin Feng came to the Grand Celestial World.
But after jerking Xuan Li back, everything returned to normalcy in an instant. All the spiritual energy seemed to have dissipated.
“It can’t be traced, but it’s everywhere.” Lin Feng squinted his eyes as he sized up this alternate plane of space, “The spiritual energy is not only of utmost quality, even the quantity of it is shocking.”
“If I use these two points to deduce, this place….”
Lin Feng used his finger to tap his brow lightly. The Grand Celestial Seven Seas were the most miraculous seven alternate planes of spaces in the Grand Celestial World. Each of them was special in their own way.
Among them, the Void Sea, Black Sea, Ying Sea and the Starry Sea were comparatively more stable. Among these four, the Black Sea, Ying Sea and the Starry Sea had specific boundary passages that were connected to the Greater World.
The Void Sea existed in the Void Battleground and it was a little special. The space was messy and had no specific boundary passages. But if the dangers were overlooked, entering and exiting the place was not difficult.
The Netherworld Sea was a little more mysterious. It is in a sealed state, but there would be some spatial cracks from time to time. But the positions of these cracks had some kind of rhythm to them. With regards to the Divine Lands, they often appeared near the region of the Southern Wilderness.
At the same time, because of the special characteristics of the messiness of space in the Void Battleground, the Netherworld Sea’s spatial cracks also often appeared within the Void Sea. The disasters that flowed out also became a more dangerous part of the Void Sea.
But the remaining two seas in the Grand Celestial Seven Seas, the Dead Sea and the Spirit Sea, were more mysterious.
The Dead Sea was the source of the initiation of the Power-Destroying Catastrophe. It seemed to be omnipresent, but it could not be found.
Whereas the Spirit Sea was like the Dead Sea, without a specific position. It seemed to be closely connected to the Greater World, but no one could specifically point out its position. They also did not know how to go there.
There had been very little news about the Spirit Sea in history. At the same time, they were mostly based on words. Basically, there had been very little encounters of the Spirit Sea, which was very pitiful.
Those who were lucky to enter and exit the Spirit Sea were also unable to give very detailed descriptions of the place.
“I feel that as if countless principles of the Great Tao have been added to my body…”
“Spiritual energy that is extremely pure and nourishing…”
“An ocean completely converted from spiritual energy…”
With regards to the Spirit Sea, these were all the brief descriptions about it. But with Lin Feng’s own experience, he could basically judge that this alternate plane of space he was facing was the Spirit Sea of the Grand Celestial Seven Seas!
“So it seems like this is the place that the Great Void Sect has always missed, the Spirit Sea.” Lin Feng stood straight in front of the door and he pondered, “The Great Void Sect followed the clues and came to the Spirit Sea, or did they encounter it before?”
“The stone flute and stone stair is still in my hands, but they have already managed to open it up. If it was their first time searching for the place, they wouldn’t have so many clues. They would have thought of ways of getting the flute and stair from me to open this plane of space.”
“But now it seems like they have encountered this place before.”
Lin Feng nodded his head slightly. For the Great Void Sect to have such powers and become the evergreen tree in the human cultivation world without falling for countless ages, they could not be underestimated.
On Mount Yujing, Xuan Li smashed the sword casket hardly onto the ground. She sat on his knees on the top of the sword casket and revealed a rare look of indignance on her face. She was extremely furious with that alternate plane of space she just encountered.
Lin Feng thought that it was interesting as he saw this scene. She was only in such a state during the battle of Xiling City, when Xin Longsheng retreated along with the Saintly Celestial Sword.
“It’s partly my fault for not taking things into consideration.” Lin Feng laughed while shaking his head. After comforting Xuan Li again, he turned to look at the alternate plane of space in front of him and he became deep in thought again.
The unknown was always the greatest danger and difficulty. If the background of something was known, no matter how difficult it was, a partial analysis could still be done. There was room for preparation and planning. But in the face of the unknown, one could only adapt. Whatever would happen, no one knew.
After pondering for a while, Lin Feng communicated with Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the rest.
“I have some progress in my cultivation. I shall retreat into void space.” After pausing for a moment, Lin Feng added, “I may retreat for a short or long time this time. I may also reply to your attempts to contact me, but I may not do so too. Don’t panic if that happens.”
He was not afraid that something would happen to him. But the powers of the Spirit Sea were special. It could block off any communication. When Xiao Yan and the rest discovered that he was uncontactable, they might panic.
Xiao Yan and the rest were a little surprised, but they expressed their understanding Regardless whether it was the human clan or the demon clan, when they cultivated, such a retreat like Lin Feng’s was not common, but it was not rare either.
The time varied. It could be short like a couple of days, or long like tens of years, or even hundreds and thousands of years.
When one of the most bizarre powerful cultivator in the history of Divine Lands retreated into void space, up to hundred thousands of years, no one could contact him during that period. Whoever tried to contact him made futile attempts and he returned no messages.
Eventually, when he came out of his retreat, everything had changed already.
Of course, because of this uncertainty, most powerful cultivators were prudent when they dealt with such a matter. But it was indeed rare for such a retreat to occur.
“As I retreat, Xiao Yan will take care of everything in the sect. The rest of you shall assist him.”
“If Tianhao returns from the Void Battleground, immediately pass the Qiong Qi demon that I caught in the East Sea for him to cultivate.”
Xiao Yan replied, “Yes, Master. Please rest assure.” Zhu Yi and the rest acknowledged too.
Lin Feng continued saying, “Wang Lin, when you travel with Hongyan and Yang Qing, you must take care of their safety.”
Wang Lin answered, “Yes, Master.”
“Yuanfang, Xiaowu, don’t delay your cultivations. After I come out of my retreat, I will test the both of you.” Lin Feng laughed before saying. Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu acknowledged his words too.
After settling all these, Lin Feng took in a deep breath and stepped into the world of the Spirit Sea.
As he walked slowly into the world, Lin Feng could not really see anything. As he moved, he tried to sense the countless Great Tao that existed in void space inside this world. He also sensed the boundless spiritual energy that existed.
“Cultivating here will be much easier.” As Lin Feng walked, he stopped in his tracks.
That was because he suddenly felt that the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl at the opening of the Spirit Sea had developed some changes.
In just a blink of an eye, the formless stair in void space started to jerk intensely. In the next moment, the stair revealed its form again. Following that, the stone flute, stone stair and the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl separated and converted into three streaks of flowing light. They shot into the Spirit Sea.
The three magic treasures came beside Lin Feng, but Big Luo, who was inside the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl, revealed a surprised look. Lin Feng was also surprised. As he investigated carefully, he realized that the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl, stone flute and stone stair did not develop any weird changes.
But following that, Lin Feng realized something was amiss.
The space in the Spirit Sea also started to jerk. Streaks and streaks of transparent light belts intersected in the sky. The entire Heavens and Earth seemed to appear.
“What are the people from the Great Void Sect doing?” Lin Feng creased his brows, “Don’t tell me that they have a deep understanding of the Spirit Sea and can control it? Even if they don’t want me in, they don’t have to do this.”
In fact, the Tai Yi Holy Man and the rest were not certain whether Lin Feng had entered the Spirit Sea. And right now, they were not feeling good either. The few of them looked at one another, “It’s all the doing of the Heavenly Sea Hades, causing this place to be messed up.”
It had always been the case where destruction was easy, but re-construction was difficult. For the Great Void Sect to rebuild this place, it was not easy.
“This is…” Cai Fengzhou was stunned. In front of him, a middle-aged man with facial features that resembled him appeared suddenly. It was an avatar that he had cultivated. It was supposed to be cultivating on Mount Baiyun, and he had no intention of bringing it to the Spirit Sea. But it appeared in front of him automatically.
His actual body and avatars shared the same mind, but with different bodies. They were connected. But he felt that it was ridiculous. For no reason, this avatar was shifted into the Spirit Sea from his residence on Mount Baiyun.
Lin Feng also looked at four human figures in front of him and was a little stunned.
Two of them were the giant King of the Boundless Sea and the Heaven-Bearing Emperor, who were both his physical spell bodies. He had given them to Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu for safety precautions earlier.
The other two were his Avatar of Ares and Thunder Dragon avatar.
Lin Feng creased his brows and looked at the Spirit Sea around him, “This time, the game has been played too big.”
