Chapter 86: Aurous Core Stage Bully
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_
“Do you know the consequences of brandishing a sword in front of me?”.
Lin Feng said gently.
Upon hearing this, Xue Chao was surprised for a moment and then couldn’t help laughing, “Seems like you’ve gone crazy, Taoist. Who do you think you are?”.
Closely afterwards he smiled cruelly, “A piece of trash like you has no use living in this world. As such, I’ll send you on your way right now!”. As he spoke, he controlled the flying sword towards the direction to chop down towards Lin Feng’s head.
But Lin Feng didn’t even look at the flying sword above his head, instead, he looked at the skinny bamboo pole-like Taoist Ma and asked calmly, “Foundation Establishment stage, you have the highest cultivation level out of everyone here?”.
Taoist Ma slightly wrinkled his forehead, “Heretic, you truly do not know the immensity of heaven and earth. To be still spouting nonsense here at this kind of time?”.
Lin Feng chuckled, “Forget it, I will not bully a bunch of kids.”.
“Even using Aurous Core stage strength would be bullying you guys.”
Before his voice died away, dazzling Buddhist light charged up into the sky, which directly knocked away Xue Chao’s sword that was chopping downward.
Xue Chao and company were completely dumbfounded as they were caught off guard. And in the instance, clouds of golden haze enveloped the surrounding 100 feet of swampland. The miasma fog originally in the swamp all disappeared and the rotten stench was also replaced by waves of sandalwood.
In the light haze, Buddhist chanting rang beside the ears. It was precisely the 24 Heaven Arhat Formation.
In the Buddhist chanting, 24 golden arhats strode out from the light haze. 24 100 foot tall arhat light figures formed a forest of giants, standing in a circle and surrounding Xue Chao and company.
Every single golden arhat revealed Foundation Establishment stage mana fluctuations. The mana of the 24 Arhats connected together as one were truly as limitless as the sky and ocean.
Xue Chao and company who were surrounded by this kind of aggressive lineup instantly felt insurmountable pressure as big as a mountain.
The Foundation Establishment stage spell sword of Xue Chao’s became constrained in mid-air by Buddhist light. It was like a fish in the desert- no matter how much it flailed around it was unable to move.
“This… How is this possible?”. Xue Chao and the other two were stunned and unable to speak. Taoist Ma’s face was also pale, he opened his mouth with difficulty, saying, “Fellow Taoist… No, Senior, please put away your skill, there might be some misunderstanding here.”.
A massive misunderstanding at that!
None of them had thought beforehand that Lin Feng who looked to only have a cultivation level of the great circle of the perfection of qi cultivator could actually use such a terrifying skill. Wasn’t that a great misunderstanding?
Lin Feng’s voice travelled out from the golden Buddhist
light, ethereal and grand.
“Misunderstanding? You guys courted trouble with my disciple and recklessly took up arms in front of me. The facts are all present, I didn’t misunderstand at all.”.
Taoist Ma was already about to cry. He bit his teeth, “I am Ma Wu, a disciple of the Blue Rose Temple on Mount Evergreen. My eyes failed to identify Mt. Tai and thus caused offence to you. My Taoist is Progenitor Flower Vine, please give some face and forgive my front just now.”.
Seeing his bodyguard Ma Wu actually go and ask for Lin Feng’s forgiveness, Xue Chao’s eyes instantly turned red and he roared in anger, “General Xie and the army are right around here, why are you scared of him?”.
Even using every single ounce of strength he had he was still unable to call back his flying sword. He was instantly anxious, he took out a talisman from his clothes and hastily launched it towards the golden arhats.
Ma Wu’s face turned green and he wished that he could slap the playboy to death at the moment.
No matter how much reinforcements there were around, if they couldn’t defeat Lin Feng and were to die first, at that time it will be useless no matter who comes.
The talisman exploded within the Buddhist light formation, turning into balls of fire that constantly exploded. Even the billowing Buddhist light golden haze was blasted open.
Blazing flames dashed to the sky and the tyrannical flames swept over with the force to burn the sky and boil the sea. The golden arhats also all retreated backwards. Under the assault of the blazing fire, their bodies made of light even became a bit unstable, as if they were about to shatter at any moment.
Ma Wu’s eyes instantly lit up, “An Aurous Core talisman?”
This talisman that Xue Chao threw out was astoundingly an Aurous Core talisman. This was specially made by a powerful elder in his clan for him to protect himself. It was equivalent to the attack of a powerful Aurous Core stage cultivator and is Xue Chao’s final ace.
“Fight a path out and then when we draw the army over, even if he is an Aurous Core or nascent soul old monster it is still certain death for him!” Xue Chao’s face was twisted and the two followers behind him all echoed in response upon hearing him.
Seeing an Aurous Core talisman carving out a path, Ma Wu’s thoughts also livened up. If he didn’t have to grovel on his knees, of course, he wouldn’t want to either.
Ma Wu’s two hands instantly formed a spell sign. He opened his mouth and spit out a plant seed. Under the stimulation of Ma Wu’s mana, the seed rapidly sprouted and grew in the air, turning into a seedling.
The leaves of the seedling were clear and a rich green. It looked very pure and fresh, but the green circles of light that emitted around the seedling revealed a terrifying mana fluctuation.
Where the green light passed, the golden Buddhist light in the 24 Heavens Arhat Formation all gradually vanished.
Originally the Buddhist light formation was already a bit unstable after sustaining the bombardment of the Aurous Core talisman. Now with Ma Wu’s followup attack, it had become even more precarious.
Seeing this, Ma Wu couldn’t help saying with a smile, “Fellow Taoist, if you are willing to leave now we’ll forget about everything from before. What do you say?”
Xue Chao snorted, “As if, I think this Taoist is just a pewter spearhead that shines like silver. He looks good but he’s useless, he’s just relying on this formation that he picked up from god knows where to put on a charade. Once we break this formation I’ll show him who’s boss.”
Ma Wu didn’t care about his words. He let Xue Chao play the bad cop while he played the good cop, “Fellow Taoist, if you don’t turn away now, Young Taoist Xue is not going to let things go with you. At that time it will be too late for you to regret.”
Lin Feng’s chuckling travelled over from the within the Buddhist light, “Exactly who will regret when it’s too late?”
“An Aurous Core talisman, hehe, so what if it’s an Aurous Core talisman?”. Lin Feng smiled saying, “I said before that it would be bullying you guys if you used even Aurous Core stage strength.”.
Finishing speaking, the situation in the 24 Heavens Arhat Formation suddenly changed. Three of the arhats amongst the 24 golden arhats suddenly burned up with blazing flames.
The remaining arhats respectively guarded the three flaming Arhats in groups of seven. Their pure Buddhist mana was endlessly supplied to the flaming arhats.
The three flaming arhats chanted a Buddhist prayer together. Fire charged up into the sky, connecting together in the air above their heads and turning into a boundless sea of fire.
The sea of fire rumbled and even the entire Buddhist light formation shook for a moment.
Xue Chao and company who were at the Qi Cultivation stage didn’t really have a clear feeling, but Foundation Establishment stage Taoist Ma clearly felt that there seemed to be something terrifying about to be born in the sea of fire.
The next moment, a golden Buddha with four faces, eight arms and an angry expression slowly rose up from the sea of fire. There was a closed vertical eye between the brows of the Buddha.
The milky white Acalanātha Inferno shot out from the vertical eye between the Buddha’s brows, landing on the blazing flames created by the Aurous Core talisman.
They were both flames, but the blazing fire created by Xue Chao’s talisman seemed to have become the fuel for the Acalanātha Inferno. In just a short instant, the red fire completely died out and turned into a boundless white sea of fire!
The Acalanātha Inferno were this domineering, even other flames would be burned to nothingness by it!
Ma Wu watched with a face of despair at the little sapling he brought out get surrounded by the white sea of fire. He wanted to take it back but was unable to do so and it was instantly burnt to ashes.
“No!”. His soul bound magic item being destroyed, Ma Wu spit out a mouthful of blood. He collapsed to the ground and in the next instant, he was surrounded by the sea of fire, turning into a flaming person while screaming.
The remaining three people didn’t even have the room to struggle and were devoured by the sea of fire.
“Why exactly did I mess with this kind of fiend?”. This was the last thought in all of their minds, they really did regret when it was too late.
Watching this scene in front of him, Wang Lin had a vibrant look in his eyes.
Lin Feng suddenly came to his mind, “I can’t burn them all, I still need to ask them about the matter of galactic sand.”. As such, he hurriedly retracted his Acalanātha Inferno ability and converted his mana to the River Styx Nirvana Mantra.
Of the four people, only Ma Wu with the highest cultivation level still luckily kept his life. But his body has already been burnt to a crisp and only his soul remained.
Not waiting for him to rejoice that the fire was finally extinguished, his soul was captured by a stream of mana.
Ma Wu was instantly scared out of his wits. Lin Feng stared at him with a smiling face and used the Unholy Marionette spell.
