The appearance of the Pearl of Styx instantly shattered the enemy’s water class spell.
Xue Chao wrinkled his forehead and then relaxed it. His eyes revealed a look of greed, “Taoist Ma, I want that treasure. Please get it for me, there will definitely be a generous reward for you afterwards.”.
Taoist Ma, who was like a thin bamboo pole sized up Wang Lin and then looked at the Pearl of Styx.
“I don’t want to bully a kid. Young Master Xue, you can capture this kid on your own, I will help you hold back this treasure of his. Young Master, this is the perfect chance to show off your skills.”.
On hearing Taoist Ma’s words, Xue Chao laughed out loud, “With your word, I can be at ease.”.
As he finished speaking, Xue Chao suddenly opened his mouth and spat out a trail of white smoke, “Go!”.
The white smoke drifted and flew towards Wang Lin. It looked slow but had actually arrived in front of Wang Lin in the blink of an eye.
Wang Lin’s face was calm and he attentively controlled the Pearl of Styx. The Pearl of Styx burst with light. Upon coming in contact with the pale yellow light, the white smoke stopped moving forward and was unable to overstep the boundaries set by the Pearl.
At this moment Taoist Ma released a dry cough, “Rise!”. Before his voice died away, countless vines grew beneath Wang Lin’s feet, wobbling towards and binding Wang Lin.
Wang Lin was startled. The mystical light of the Pearl of Styx shone towards the dense vines under his feet. Being illuminated by the Light of Styx, the vines all withered in succession.
But new vines endlessly emerged from the ground. The rate of growth was even greater than the speed of withering and the number of vines became increasingly greater.
Seeing Taoist Ma’s spell tie down the Pearl of Styx, Xue Chao was complacent. He laughed out loud, “Such a treasure is a waste in your hands. Give it to me!”.
As he spoke, the white smoke once again surged towards the Pearl of Styx.
Wang Lin pressed his lips tightly together. His left hand formed a spell sign in front of his chest and his right index finger pointed towards the white smoke.
A black thread shot straight towards Xue Chao’s white smoke.
Xue Chao sneered, “You little shithead, you really think you’re all that great?”.
Witnessing the power of Wang Lin’s Finger of Styx from before, Xue Chao was already more vigilant. He himself was already a cultivator at the Qi Disciple Level 10. In addition, he was not going to give any leeway to Wang Lin with this attack.
The Finger of Styx’s mana may still have been able to purify and break the white smoke, but the white smoke was incredibly condensed. Only 10-20% of it was purified by Wang Lin’s attack.
Wang Lin’s face was slightly pale. For his current strength, the Finger of Styx was extremely demanding. For Wang Lin who was at Qi Disciple Level 2, his mana was truly not abundant.
Xue Chao laughed out loud, “This treasure is mine now.”. While speaking, the white smoke was already about to wrap up the Pearl of Styx.
At that moment, a beam of golden Buddhist light suddenly lit up, protecting the Pearl of Styx. When the white smoke touched the Buddhist light it was immediately unable to advance another step.
The Buddhist light turned into a glistening “卍” character pattern. While it turned, it had already deflected Xue Chao’s white smoke to the side and the smoke was unable to pose any threat to the Pearl of Styx anymore.
In the mist, Lin Feng slowly stepped out of it. He carried himself with grace, wearing a wide-sleeved white robe and Taoist clothing. He had the demeanor of a sagely master.
Wang Lin instantly breathed a sigh of relief, “Master.”.
Lin Feng nodded his head not speaking. Currently, he was pondering over the Little Samsara Techniques spell that he just used, “Even though I have the ability analyzer tool which allowed me to grasp spells within a short period of time, if I wanted to use a spell skillfully I still needed to practice more.”.
“The best form of training was to fight with people in actual combat. By merely using it just now I have obtained a better understanding.”.
While pondering, Lin Feng looked towards Xue Chao and company. He thought, “I’ve got to ask clearly why they turned hostile upon hearing galactic sand. Perhaps they know the location of galactic sand?”.
Thinking this, Lin Feng asked, “You guys know the location of galactic sand?”.
But Xue Chao and company did not answer, instead, they all stared at Lin Feng and Wang Lin with weird looks on their faces.
Lin Feng was puzzled in his heart, “Did I wear the wrong clothes? Nothing wrong, these are the right clothes.”.
On the other side, Xue Chao suddenly burst with laughter and was laughing his head off.
He sneered saying, “A mere Qi Cultivation stage cultivator with the great circle of perfection actually dared to put on a charade in front of me. It truly is hilarious.”.
He stared at Lin Feng and snorted coldly saying, “You’ve got some kind of treasure on your body that can hide your own cultivation level, right? If you didn’t do anything I still wouldn’t be able to see through your depths, but your spell has just completely betrayed you.”.
Taoist Ma also shook his head in laughter, “You dress as a Taoist but you use Buddhist spells. So mixed and impure, you are presumably a wandering cultivator?”.
The smile on his skinny face gradually faded, “A wandering cultivator with no school or sect and your cultivation level is only just Qi Disciple level 12. Who gave you the balls to be speaking with such impudence!”.
Hearing this Lin Feng was speechless. Beside him, Wang Lin looked at Xue Chao and company as if he were looking at a bunch of idiots.
The tight-uniformed youth who was careless before and had nearly screwed up losing to Wang Lin was glaring at Wang Lin the whole time. Seeing Wang Lin’s expression right then he became even more angered. He said coldly, “Ignorant little bastard, this is your master? You’re fu*king blind, you think a Qi Disciple level 12 wanderer can protect you. Take a look at who you’ve messed with!”.
The other tight-uniformed youth smiled saying, “This is our young master, Xue Chao, the legitimate son of the Great Zhou Empire’s Xue clan. But I wonder if a wild cultivator like you had heard of us before?”.
Lin Feng’s expression was calm and he chuckled, “I’ve only heard before that the Great Qin Dynasty has four great clans. As for the Great Zhou Dynasty, well, there were indeed a number of old cultivation families before. There was something to look at, but in recent years the Zhou Dynasty’s royal authority has been unprecedentedly centralized. The majority of so-called old families have all vanished.”.
“The Xue clan? Never heard of it, is a new upstart family?”.
Xue Chao’s expression turned cold, “After what you’ve said, don’t think of leaving this place alive.”.
Beside him, Taoist Ma looked at Lin Feng. He shook his head with a face of pity, “You still dare to spout nonsense here, you truly do not know where you stand.”. While speaking, he released his vast mana without any concealment, fully exhibiting his Foundation Establishment stage cultivation level.
“Young Master Xue, like I said, I don’t want to bully little kids. A little Qi Cultivation stage bug is not worth it for me to dispose of.”. Taoist Ma smiled lightly saying, “But this person is so arrogant, he might have some cards up his sleeves. However you don’t need to worry, just focus on attacking without hesitation. Should he have any cards up his sleeves, I will take care of them.”.
Xue Chao smiled coldly, “So what if he has something up his sleeves? 3000 of our Zhou Dynasty’s Divine Martial Army elites are currently all in the Great Swamp of the Ancient Regions. General Xie is right around here, what can he do?”.
“This person was of unknown origin. Even though he dressed as a daoist, his spell are of the buddhist path. He could very likely be a remnant of the Great Thunderclap Temple.”. Xue Chao said sinisterly, “Capturing such a remnant rebel also happens to be a merit.”.
“By the laws of the Zhou Dynasty, all rebels and those who resist arrest must be killed with no pardon!”.
As he spoke, Xue Chao clapped his hands together and a sword flew out from his back. It shimmered with light and turned out to be a Foundation Establishment stage sword. It arced through the air and circled above Lin Feng.
Xue Chao said coldly, “Get on your knees now and surrender. Offer up that orb and I will just cripple your cultivation prowess and spare your life.”.
The two tight-uniformed youths behind him exchanged looks and both started laughing, “This guy dared to put on airs in front of Young Master, he truly is an idiot.”.
“Even if he had something up his sleeves, how could he be a match for Foundation Establishment stage Taoist Ma? Stepping on him was like crushing a bug for Taoist Ma.”.
“Even without Taoist Ma, he’s still as good as dead. Young Master still has a trump card that he hasn’t used.”.
Hearing the chatter on the other side and then looking at the flying sword circling above his head, Lin Feng was a bit speechless for a moment.
He brushed his sleeves and had an indifferent look.
“I don’t wish to bully kids. You are qi cultivation stage so when I made my move before I also only used Qi Cultivation stage level. I did not expect that I would actually be looked down upon by you kids.”.
Lin Feng slightly raised his eyes and his gaze turned cold, “Do you know how you’ll end up using a sword in front of me?”.
