Chapter 826: Saving the Flowing Waves Holy Man, Obtaining the Golden Seal
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Although there were only minor clues previously, Lin Feng still managed to derive some clues. These clues gathered in his head to form a guess.
The view in the light projection proved Lin Feng’s guess
That man might look similar to Miao Shihao, but Lin Feng had never met this guy before. In fact, no one in the entire Divine Lands had seen this man before.
But the name of this man was reputable in the human cultivation world. However, those who were of lower cultivation or who were too young might not have heard of his name before. After all, the gap in their generations was too huge. But those who were more senior in the cultivation world were aware of this guy.
He was one of the Four Immemorial Heroes of the Great Void Sect during the Antiquity Age, Yue Huatian.
In the past, the Great Void Holy Man had many Immediate Disciples. But the ones who were more reputable, and at the same time were more outstanding, were the Four Immemorial Heroes of the Great Void. They were also known as the “Ri Yue Xing Chen”, which was the combination of their names.
Wen Chiyang, Yue Huatian, Yan Xinghe and Huang Chen. (Translator’s Note: The word “Ri” and “Yang” refers to the Sun in Chinese, thus the “Ri” in “Ri Yue Xing Chen” refers to Wen Chiyang.)
Among the four of them, Huang Chen entered the sect the earliest. He was also the oldest. Since the start of the Primordial Age, he had already become a disciple of the Great Void Holy Man. He helped the Great Void Holy Man to establish the Great Void Sect went through the entire Primordial Age, until the Antiquity Age. He also experienced the great war that ravaged during the transition between these two ages.
But it was a pity that he perished early too. At the beginning of the Antiquity Age, during the war to kill Emperor Jue, also known as Xuan Shang, Huang Chen was killed by Emperor Jue and he died young.
Whereas the most powerful of the four of them was Wen Chiyang. He was recognized as the second most powerful after the Great Void Holy Man. Even though he perished eventually, he left his mark in the history of the Grand Celestial World.
Everyone acknowledged that Wen Chiyang had the abilities to ascend the throne as a human emperor, but he rejected the position like his Master.
Besides Wen Chiyang, Yan Xinghe was the second leader of the Great Void Sect after the Great Void Holy Man went to the Dead Sea. He made a huge contribution in the resistance against the demon clan. After that, he even worked with the Emperor of the Ancients to depose the Hades’ Emperor.
But during that war, Yan Xinghe perished along with the Hades’ Emperor.
What was worth mentioning was that Yan Xinghe was the ancestor of Yan Nanlai, the current leader of the Great Void Sect. His blood lineage carried on till now, which was something very rare in the human cultivation world. In every generation of his lineage, there would be a talent that rose.
The most mysterious of the lot was Yue Huatian. No one from the outside world ever saw his true appearance. Even in the Great Void Sect, there were very little people who actually saw the true appearance of Yue Huatian. Even till this day, there had been no projections of his image that had leaked out before.
The identity of Yue Huatian was known, but his true appearance remained a mystery.
Yue Huatian followed the Great Void Sect and the Buddha to the Dead Sea. They all lost contact after that. Whether he was alive or dead also became a mystery.
As compared to him, the outside world was more familiar with his disciple, the Water Moon Holy Woman, Li Jingyuan.
Li Jingyuan’s image leaked and Lin Feng ever saw her before.
She was the lady who hugged the circular mirror.
With Li Jingyuan following behind him as well as the symbol on his own forehead, Yue Huatian shared a tight relationship with the Great Void Sect. His cultivation was also very high.
With all these evidences, Lin Feng could confirm that the man who looked like Miao Shihao was Yue Huatian of the Immemorial Talents of the Great Void Sect.
As Lin Feng looked at both Yue Huatian’s and Li Jingyuan’s faces, the messy clues in his head started to become clearer.
Lin Feng pondered in his heart, “There’s still very little regarding the Great Void Sect. Although it’s unknown whether Yue Huatian is alive or dead, there is at least a clear indication that he went with the Great Void Holy Man to the Dead Sea.”
“But with regards to Li Jingyuan, her whereabouts are unknown. She was quite famous during the Antiquity Age, but she soon disappeared without a trace. Without any news, it’s difficult to confirm whether she’s dead. Li Jingyuan was already in the Immortal Soul Third Level, thus it should have been quite a big thing if she’s dead already.”
“I believe that not many people would know this in the Great Void Sect today. I believe only a few of them understand the truth. Besides them, only Shihao is aware.”
Lin Feng shook his head slightly and retracted his emotions. His gaze shifted between the world of the Spirit Sea and the ocean.
“From what it seems, I think we can confirm that the Great Void Sect has a deep understanding of the Spirit Sea.” Lin Feng thought, “Yue Huatian and Li Jingyuan both entered the Spirit Sea, thus they were able to leave behind treasures that could influence the Spirit Sea. These treasures were then used by the current Great Void Sect cultivators to summon the wave of spiritual energy.
As Lin Feng pondered, he continued to observe the ocean in front of him. After pondering for a moment, he retrieved the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl. Suddenly, a huge amount of radiance flashed from the pearl and streaks and streaks of flowing light shot out of the pearl. They extended towards the ocean.
As these flowing lights encountered the ocean, a huge suction power came from the ocean and threatened to suck the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl within.
Lin Feng lifted up his palms and chopped lightly at the space. The Fences of the Heavens was activated and stopped the suction power of the ocean. The Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl remained stable in Lin Feng’s palm.
As he saw this scene, the Flowing Waves Holy Man was surprised again.
Lin Feng turned to look at him and asked calmly, “I believe you possess certain things that have been subjected to the suction of this ocean, don’t you?”
The gaze of the Flowing Waves Holy Man flashed and he sighed, “Leader…of the Celestial Sect of Wonders? You are indeed sharp. Because of this, I am restrained by the light bells and am unable to move freely.”
He looked at Lin Feng and said, “Truth be told, besides the stone talisman, I also obtained a seal inadvertently. With the guidance of both the seal and the stone talisman, I was able to enter the Spirit Sea through the sunlight stairway.
As I was distracted, the seal was sucked away by the ocean from me. As I panicked, I unleashed my Immortal Soul to hold back the seal. But who knew that I was also restrained by the ocean. By a stroke of luck, I was not sucked into the ocean. But I can’t move freely as a result.”
“This Spirit Sea is filled with the way of the Great Tao. There’s boundless spiritual energy. Over here, I managed to break through the bottleneck that I have been facing all these years and cultivated the virtual entity. As my powers increased, I managed to break free of the restraints on the upper half of my body. But the lower half of my body still continues to be restrained.”
Lin Feng nodded his head and did not add on anything. He unleashed the Fences of the Heavens again and straightened his palm like a knife. He slashed down towards the light belts that restrained the Flowing Waves Holy Man.
The Flowing Waves Holy Man jerked and felt that the light belts beneath him were starting to degrade.
He was surprised and elated at the same time. He revealed his virtual entity, which was a huge patch of sea. The sea was vast. As its powers combined with Lin Feng, the restraint of the light belts was overcome.
When the Flowing Waves Holy Man managed to free himself, he felt a sense of freedom. He immediately thanked Lin Feng, “It’s all thanks to the resourcefulness of Master Lin that I have managed to break free from the restraints. I am eternally grateful to Master Lin.”
Lin Feng smiled, “You are too kind. I promised the Kui Cow King and the Spiritual Sea Horse King that if I managed to find you on this journey, I will help you to leave this place if you were trapped. But if you wanted to stay, then I just had to pass news to them.”
The Flowing Waves Holy Man shook his sleeves and a purplish-golden seal flew out. The seal landed in front of Lin Feng.
As he saw that the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl was subjected to the suction power of the ocean, he knew that Lin Feng would need this purplish-golden seal of his.
Lin Feng did not even ask yet, but the Flowing Waves Holy Man had already presented the seal to him. On one hand, he was grateful for Lin Feng’s help. On the other hand, as he saw what happened just now, he knew that Lin Feng’s powers were above him. If Lin Feng wanted to obtain the seal forcefully from him, he would be unable to stop Lin Feng.
As he saw the Flowing Waves Holy Man presenting the seal to him, Lin Feng was slightly embarrassed, “Since this is the case, I shall thank you for the gift.”
The Flowing Waves Holy Man shook his head and replied, “Master Lin, you don’t have to stand on ceremony. We all know that the power of this treasure can’t be fully unleashed in my hands. Since you are so powerful, you may be able to better use it.”
Lin Feng received the seal over and saw that the upper half of the seal was engraved with the image of a carving that was half human and half demon. It was a Hades Beast!
“Indeed…” Lin Feng thought of something. He asked the Flowing Waves Holy Man, “This seal is also from the East Sea?”
The Flowing Waves Holy Man nodded his head, “Yes. It’s obtained from the sea region near the Luofu Mystical Island in the East Sea.”
Lin Feng did not speak and Big Luo was also silent. That was the place that he once lived in.
Even after the happenings at the Penglai Celestial Mountain and his cultivation all these years, Big Luo was still unclear of his own situation. But he was able to figure out a few concepts along the way.
This seal engraved with the carving of the Hades Beast might be related to him too.
Lin Feng unleashed a few streaks of mana, which entered the seal and cultivated it. He discovered that there was nothing very valuable inside. There were only a few formations that seemed more outstanding.
One of the formation resonated with the ocean. There was another formation that connected with the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl. At the same time, it connected with the soul of Big Luo inside the pearl.
This second formation contained way concepts that had supplementary effects to one’s powers. It would be useful for both Big Luo and the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl.
Lin Feng lifted both the seal and the pearl. In void space, a bright radiance shone. The seal was infused within the pearl and the size of the pearl increased a notch.
Frightening purple light surged out from the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl. The divine patterns in the light shook the Heavens, and even the countless Great Tao concepts of the Spirit Sea reacted. They all shook together. The originally peaceful wave of spiritual energy started to rumble again. But it’s just that this movement was initiated by the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl.
The ocean in front of Lin Feng experienced a change. Within the ocean, there was a sudden trembling motion that seemed to spark the movement of waves.
An image started to take shape and surfaced in front of Lin Feng and the Flowing Waves Holy Man.
As the both of them looked at this image, they were both stunned.
“Damn…it!” Lin Feng cursed. Fortunately, he did not shout it out loud.
