Chapter 825: A Man Just Like Miao Shihao
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Lin Feng thought of something and he expanded his supernatural awareness. He discovered that someone was present where the two worlds intersected.
That person was an elder who looked refined and peaceful. He was sitting on his knees at the boundary of the two worlds.
Lin Feng looked at him and retrieved a stone talisman. The stone talisman rose up and started to shine with a radiance. The stone talisman, which had always been very ordinary, started to exude a miraculous, spiritual aura.
As he felt this aura, the body of the elder jerked and he looked towards Lin Feng. When he noticed the stone talisman in Lin Feng’s hand, he was stunned.
“Are you the Flowing Waves Holy Man?” Lin Feng asked calmly. The stunned look on the elder’s faced disappeared and he regained his peaceful look once again. But as his gaze flashed, he was more and more surprised. He looked at Lin Feng before nodding his head slowly, “I am indeed the Flowing Waves Holy Man. What should I refer to you as? I can’t recognize you.”
When the Flowing Waves Holy Man entered the Spirit Sea, Lin Feng was yet to make his mark in the Grand Celestial World. Naturally, the Flowing Waves Holy Man was unable to recognize him.
Lin Feng glanced at the Flowing Waves Holy Man, “According to what the Kui Cow King and the Spiritual Sea Horse King mentioned, the Flowing Waves Holy Man was in the Immortal Soul First Level. But now, he is in the Immortal Soul Second Level.”
Lin Feng could see through the cultivation realm of the Flowing Waves Holy Man, but the Flowing Waves Holy Man could not do the same to him. Lin Feng did not seem to have any cultivation. He did not even exude any aura.
Lin Feng smiled, “I am Lin Feng, the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. We have not met before. But I have interacted with the Kui Cow King and Spiritual Sea Horse King who were both under you in the past. They requested me to find you. This stone talisman was also taken from the Kui Cow King.”
The Flowing Waves Holy Man looked at Lin Feng and did not reply immediately. He was a peaceful and generous person, thus he organized a spiritual forum in the past to help those in the East Sea to cultivate independently.
But this did not mean that he believed Lin Feng’s words so easily.
“They are indeed thoughtful. I unintentionally walked into this plane of space very long ago and lost all connection with the outside world. I am also unable to let them know how I am doing.” The Flowing Waves Holy Man replied slowly. “All these years, besides you, I have never seen anyone entering this place. I was starting to believe that I will spend my entire life here alone. Seeing you now is my fortune.”
“If I am not wrong, this must be the most mysterious Spirit Sea out of the Grand Celestial Seven Seas. To cultivate here, it is still considered a fortunate thing.”
“But when I first came in, I met with an accident. Thus, I am unable to stand up to greet you. I have made a laughing stock of myself. I hope you are not too offended.”
Lin Feng observed the Flowing Waves Holy Man carefully and saw that the lower part of his body extended with many formless light belts. These light belts were connected to those from the other world (with the bright ocean) and seemed to have extended from there.
The Flowing Waves Holy Man was restrained by these light belts, thus he couldn’t stand up.
Lin Feng asked, “How did this happen?”
The Flowing Waves Holy Man sighed and retrieved a stone talisman from his pocket. It looked the same as the one Lin Feng had, as if they were supposed to exist together. But it was filled with cracks, revealing that it could not be used anymore. “I obtained this stone talisman by chance. After that, under its guidance, I left the East Sea and came to the Kunlun Mountains.”
“Over there, I found a stairway to Heaven, formed from sunlight.” The Flowing Waves Holy Man recalled.
As Lin Feng heard this, he nodded his head slightly. The sunlight stairway of the Flowing Waves Holy Man seemed to be similar to what Kang Nanhua saw in the past.
Both the stone talisman and the stairway must have caused the revelation of a path induced by the Spirit Sea itself. It had nothing to do with the Great Void Sect and Hades’ Emperor.
Just like the sealed Netherworld Sea, some spatial cracks would open at times. Very fast, they would seal again. But the cracks that opened at the Netherworld Sea were fairly stable. Whereas this sunlight stairway to the Spirit Sea was unpredictable.
The Flowing Waves Holy Man continued with his story, “I walked up the stairway and immediately felt a strong repression from the Greater World. It was frightening.”
“During then, I could sense the brilliance of the Great Dao. I was then sucked into the Spirit Sea.”
The Flowing Waves Holy Man looked down at the light belts and sighed, “It’s a pity that when I first entered the Spirit Sea, I landed here and was entangled by these light belts. Ever since then, I couldn’t move myself.”
After Lin Feng heard what he said, he nodded his head and stepped across the body of the Flowing Waves Holy Man. He stepped closer and closer towards the ocean and felt its power concept.
Although the ocean was bright, as compared to the world in the Spirit Sea, Lin Feng could only feel a great degree of distortion from the eye-blinding brightness.
The Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl was jerking tremendously and Big Luo’s soul inside was unsure of what to do.
Lin Feng comforted Big Luo, but he did not rush to retrieve the pearl. He continued to sense the brilliance of the ocean in front of him.
Through the weird movement of the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl, Lin Feng deduced that this ocean, which did not seem to fit with the world of the Spirit Sea, had something to do with the Hades’ Emperor.
At this point, the world of the Spirit Sea seemed to shake a little. The countless light belts also release a radiance slowly.
Boundless movement of spiritual energy filled the entire space and they moved with a rhythm, just like the waves in an ocean.
And now, the spiritual energy rushed towards the ocean where Lin Feng and the Flowing Waves Holy Man were.
“This sudden wave of spiritual energy originated from a Great Void Sect cultivator who also entered this place.” Lin Feng thought of this. “The Great Void Sect had a deep understanding of the Spirit Sea in the first place. They are now trying to remove this ocean and the marks that the Hades’ Emperor left in the past.
The ocean did not react violently to the approaching wave of spiritual energy. It did not have an urge to resist the spiritual energy either. It remained calm as it allowed the spiritual energy to come.
Lin Feng’s pupils shrank. He felt as if the ocean was a deep valley, as it engulfed the spiritual energy that came towards it.
It was as if a huge, bottomless, oceanic trench had appeared. The ocean water surged in, but the trench could never be filled.
After the spiritual energy had rushed in, they started to calm down. It’s not that the spiritual energy had all been engulfed. Rather, the spiritual energy seemed to discover the oddity of the ocean and they decided to stop. They wanted to find out what’s wrong before settling the problem.
Lin Feng and the Flowing Waves Holy Man were not in danger. The spiritual energy did not harm them, but Lin Feng would not treat them as harmless. It’s just that the spiritual energy was aiming the ocean and not the two of them on this occasion.
As the spiritual energy retreated, the Flowing Waves Holy Man creased his brows and commented, “This is my first time seeing something like this.”
Lin Feng replied, “This must be the doing of a Great Void Sect cultivator.”
The Flowing Waves Holy Man was stunned, “THe Great Void Sect?”
Lin Feng answered calmly, “If I’m not wrong, the Great Void Sect was able to enter the Spirit Sea at will.”
“And this ocean in front of us was created by the Hades’ Emperor in the past. The birth of this ocean also prevented the Great Void Sect from entering the Spirit Sea at will. If they wanted to enter, they needed to have some luck, just like you.”
“Right now, the Great Void Sect has found a method of entering the Spirit Sea. But I don’t think it’s as convenient as before. That’s why they are trying to reform this Spirit Sea and cause it to return to how it was before the Hades’ Emperor came.”
The Flowing Waves Holy Man was stunned. He looked at Lin Feng hesitantly, “Then you are…”
Lin Feng smiled and did not continue speaking. He allowed the Flowing Waves Holy Man to guess. His focus returned to the Spirit Sea which had regained its peace again.
“It’s not easy summoning the spiritual energy just now. The Great Void Sect has such a good control of the Spirit Sea?” Lin Feng’s expression did not change, but he was deep in thought, “Did they have such an ability in the past, or were they able to develop a better control after the doing of the Hades’ Emperor?”
As he was pondering, Lin Feng’s pupils shrank suddenly. He could subtly spot a light projection that surfaced after the spiritual energy had retreated.
There were two people in the projection, one male and one female. The female, who landed behind, had charming facial features and she hugged a circular mirror in her arms.
The outline of the mirror was confusing. In the mirror, the scenery kept on changing. Flowers bloomed and wilted, waves rose and declined, but the most attention-seeking part of it was a Moon, that went through its waxing and waning cycle.
From a full Moon, it became a half-Moon, before turning into a crescent. Eventually, the Moon disappeared. But a while later, the Moon appeared again. It slowly became a full Moon once again.
“Mirror, Flower, Water and Moon Technique…” Lin Feng squinted his eyes and noticed that the lady with the mirror turned her attention towards the guy in front of her. From her gaze, a deep sense of admiration could be observed, as well as a hint of romantic love.
Lin Feng turned his attention towards the guy, “I did not think of this…”
This was a handsome man and his facial features seemed to be flawless.
The man wore a calm look and he appeared very elegant.
Between his brows, there was an image of a full Moon that underwent countless changes, reflecting the changes in the shape of the Moon.
What was most shocking was that this man looked like Miao Shihao.
Lin Feng peered over at the light projection. His focus was drawn to the man, before he switched it to the lady and the mirror in her arms. After that, his attention was back on the man again.
This man and the lady were both wearing a long robe. On their robes, the picture of a white cloud was sewed onto them. This was the symbol of the Great Void Sect.
Although it was only a light projection and did not exist in reality, Lin Feng could still confirm that the cultivations of these two people were on the higher end.
“For the Great Void Sect to summon the spiritual energy earlier, they may have something that aided them. This thing came from these two people.” Lin Feng retracted his gaze, “Although the situation at the Spirit Sea is unclear, I’m still able to understand some things.”
