Chapter 847: Intolerable Situation
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Cai Fengzhou sat below the light projection of Wen Chiyang, conjuring a spell before injecting his mana into the talisman above his head. He quietly said, “Lin Feng should be trapped here too. We have to be wary of him.”
The Xuan Lin Holy Man shook his head, “He won’t find us here. If he is really related to the Hades Beast, he may be able to find the spot where the Hades Emperor caused destruction.”
“Over there, even if he knows what is happening, he is also helpless against it.”
The Tai Yi Holy Man closed his eyes and said gently, “It’s the fortune of the human clan to have such a powerful, rising figure. We don’t have to make it difficult for him. Once we are done here, we’ll just jerk him out of the Spirit Sea.”
The Zheng Yi Holy Man replied, “It’s not the fortune of the Great Void Sect though. His Mount Yujing is able to hide inside void space. Along with the Netherworld Emperor’s World, they are one of the few locations that are unafraid of the Supreme Heavenly Mirror. While the Netherworld Emperor’s World is fixed, Mount Yujing is able to shift freely.”
The Xuan Lin Holy Man asked, “Then let’s wait until we completely control the Spirit Sea. We shall keep him here for some time, while we take control of Mount Yujing. Following that, we shall force him out of here.”
The Zheng Yi Holy Man shook his head, “Forget it, let him do whatever he wants. As long as we can control the Spirit Sea, it’s fine if he doesn’t wreak havoc. Even if he wants to do so, he can’t create much uproar. He can only hide in void space. Once he reveals himself in the Greater World, he will be discovered by the Supreme Heavenly Mirror.”
“The crisis over at the demon side has been settled. Let’s gather twelve people under the guidance of the Supreme Heavenly Mirror and the Void Yin-Yang Clock to search void space for him. While it’s a little tedious, we should be able to find him.”
Xuan Lin Holy Man nodded his head and did not continue much further, “I have been observing him and realized that he is someone who is very ambitious. He is far more ambitious than Liang Pan, Xin Longsheng, Shi Yu and the others.”
As the Zheng Yi Holy Man and the Xuan Lin Holy Man were conversing, the expression of the Tai Yi Holy Man did not change throughout. Yun Yuanzhen, Cai Fengzhou, the Yu Yuan Holy Woman and Lin Daohan all maintained their expressions too, as they were listening in on the conversation.
After the Zheng Yi Holy Man and the Xuan Lin Holy Man finished speaking, the Tai Yi Holy Man then spoke. His tone of voice was gentle as usual, “Our priority is removing the demons. If we can control the Spirit Sea while the Supreme Heavenly Mirror returns to its peak state, our advantage over the demons will be significant.”
“Although Lin Feng can’t find us here, if he really finds the place where the Hades Emperor caused destruction, it will be difficult to predict what will happen. After all, we are still some way off from controlling the Spirit Sea. If anything happens there, we may be unable to react in time.”
“We have to move faster.”
As the Zheng Yi Holy Man and the others heard this, they nodded their heads and summoned their powers. The talismans above their heads shone even brighter. The formless light belts that connected with the Spirit Sea became more and more, as they shone brightly.
Yun Yuanzhen unleashed a few streaks of her mana which revolved around the talisman in the center. She looked at the Xuan Lin Holy Man and laughed, “Senior Xuan Lin, I believe you are not less ambitious than Lin Feng, are you?”
The Zheng Yi Holy Man was at one side, but Yun Yuanzhen did not exactly say anything taboo. She continued to smile and the Zheng Yi Holy Man did not seem insulted by what she said.
The Xuan Lin Holy Man said, “Our goal is the same, thus it’s natural that everyone will be competing with one another, which leads to all the scheming.”
He looked at Yun Yuanzhen, “Are you not the same, Junior Yun?”
His words seemed to drag the Qing Yi Holy Woman in too, but the Xuan Lin Holy Man sounded as calm as usual. Yun Yuanzhen was not bothered by his words too. She only smiled at him.
And right now, Lin Feng was watching the surge of the wave that was summoned by the formless light belts that contained the principles of Great Tao at the boundary between the Spirit Sea and the ocean.
The ocean received the second wave of spiritual energy, allowing the spiritual energy to surge towards it.
But this time, it was different from the previous time. The formless light belts also filled the ocean continuously.
This time, the ocean was filled with a rate that was observable by the naked eye.
Lin Feng’s actual body and the Thunder Dragon Avatar did not move, whereas the Avatar of Ares came to the border of the ocean. He was expressionless as he watched everything that unveiled before him.
To him, this was not something worth celebrating.
Among the Grand Celestial Seven Seas, the Spirit Sea and the Death Sea were the most mysterious and special. They were not fixed alternate planes of space like the Netherworld Sea, Ying Sea, Black Sea or the Starry Sea. They were everywhere and tightly linked to the Greater World.
Controlling the Yingzhou, Penglai and Fangzhang Celestial Mountains allowed one to control the Ying Sea. Whoever dared to enter would incur the wrath of the entire Ying Sea.
But that was only limited to the area within the entire Ying Sea. However, the Spirit Sea was unlike the Ying Sea. At any point inside the Greater World, once the position of the target was confirmed, an attack could be summoned.
Even if Lin Feng controlled the entire Ying Sea or the Dragon clan in the Black Sea, the Spirit Sea was still much more powerful. Once it locked on its target, it could tear apart the restrictions in the Ying Sea and the Black Sea.
The Death Sea and the Void Sea were similar too. The Death Sea was even more mysterious than the Spirit Sea. The Void Sea, which was also the Void Battleground, was a place that could not be fully controlled by anyone, due to the confusion in terms of the void space principles of the Great Tao.
Under such a circumstance, the Spirit Sea was regarded as the most merciless tool to kill among the Seven Seas. Especially since the Great Void Sect had the Supreme Heavenly Mirror, they were even more dangerous.
Lin Feng’s knowledge of the effect of the Supreme Heavenly Mirror was limited. But from observing the Barren Expanses for some time, he deduced that many great demons were afraid of the mirror, probably because the Supreme Heavenly Mirror was capable of finding the position of anything in space.
Many demons in the Barren Expanses hid themselves and did not dare to reveal themselves, most probably because of such a consideration.
There were few figures like the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and the Golden Roc Grand Sage. On one hand, they knew how to operate in secret. On another hand, they were bold enough.
“If I’m not wrong, with the Supreme Heavenly Mirror as a guide and the Spirit Sea as the main offensive player, the combination is perfect. This is not even accounting for the offensive strength of the Supreme Heavenly Mirror yet.” Lin Feng shook his head, “When the time comes, no one in the Divine Lands can threaten the Great Void Sect anymore. Even I myself can only hide Mount Yujing in void space. Once it appears the Greater World, the position of it will be discovered and monitored. The attack that comes will come rapidly and faster than anyone. That’s because the source of the attack is all around.”
“Unless I hide in void space to cultivate until a standard where I am fearless of the Spirit Sea and the Supreme Heavenly Mirror. Oh, more accurately speaking, I have to become more powerful than the Great Void Sect cultivators. Even if I can do so, I may not have the time.”
“Furthermore, even as I cultivate, they will be cultivating too.”
After sighing, Lin Feng closed his eyes. As he opened them again, a bright radiance shone as he stared at the ocean in front.
“This situation is intolerable…but, what should I do?”
At this moment, the formless light belts that seemed to be twisted in the ocean were being guided upwards.
“Oh?” Lin Feng’s gaze flashed and he discovered another illusory image that surfaced within the ocean. The image was blurry, but it seemed like a void space passageway to the outside world. But it was blocked by a mysterious power.
Lin Feng looked more closely, as his pupils shrank.
In the illusory image, layers and layers of black fog spread, as if there was only a dark world. But in the depths of the darkness, a silvery-white radiance and purplish light flashed subtly.
The exquisite yet dominant power concept gave a familiar feeling to Lin Feng.
He focused his gaze and looked carefully. He saw that deeper into the fog, there was a huge city!
That city was also pitch-black but flashed with a silvery-white radiance. The huge contrast was eye-blinding. This city was extremely vast as if it was a huge range of mountains. In the center of these mountains, space was made free to construct such a city.
In the city, an immense silvery-white light shot into the skies, tearing the black fog apart before shooting straight towards void space.
There were many demonic figures walking in that city. All of them had three horns and looked like humans. But behind them were long silvery-white fur. Their tails dragged behind them and their skin was filled with purplish runes.
In this city, the demons were all Hades Beasts that were similar to the Hades Emperor and Big Luo.
This was the place where the Hades Tribe gathered.
Lin Feng squinted his eyes. During the War Between the Two Worlds 4000 years ago, the Hades Emperor perished and the demon clan was defeated. Following that, the Hades Tribe disappeared and all the members of the Hades Tribe disappeared from the Greater World mysteriously.
Ever since then, no one could locate them anymore. Even the Demonic Book of the Heavenly Tao went missing with them.
Over these 4000 years, countless people and demons tried their best to locate their whereabouts.
As the Great Void Sect did not search for them, no one was able to find them.
Big Luo was the first Hades Beast to appear in the Greater World after 4000 years.
Of course, more accurately speaking, he was a Hades Beast with no physical flesh.
From what it seemed now, the Hades Tribe did not perish, but they hid themselves.
Lin Feng observed carefully and discovered many Hades Beasts in the city. Some of them had lower cultivations, whereas there were also many who were extremely frightening.
But the Hades Beasts all had a common characteristic. The three horns on their heads were covered by small white light rings.
Every one of them had three white light rings. There were no exceptions.
These light rings contained a power concept that was similar to the aura of the Spirit Sea.
But right now, Lin Feng could clearly see that the light rings on the horns of these beasts were disappearing slowly.
The Hades Beasts themselves also realized this. After a slight period of confusion, they screamed in shock. In an instant, the entire city was filled with demonic energy and cries, causing the world to shake.
