Chapter 877: Taking the Initiative to Go to Your Mountain!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Right now, on Mount Shu, the atmosphere was miserable and gloomy.
On the sword peak of the Grand Moon Sword, the Grand Moon Swordmaster was gravely injured.
He was hurt by Xiao Yan and the Virtuous Zen Master. Even with Jie Luoshi’s sword mind protecting him, his virtual entity was still hurt. He would need some time to recuperate from his injury.
But he still managed to lift his spirits and helped both the Shaoze & Guanchong Swordmasters, who were more critically injured than him, to recuperate their Immortal Souls.
Out of these two, one of them had his virtual entity crushed by Shi Tianhao while the other almost got killed by Xiao Yan.
As compared to their injuries, the feelings of these few sword cultivators were even worse.
Their disciples were still in the dark, but the few of them had already received news from Xin Longsheng that Lin Feng had returned to the Greater World. He went back to Mount Yujing and removed everyone who attacked the mountain.
Xu Anda, Shao Dongtian, Zhang Enrui and the rest had all been captured.
Whereas Jie Luoshi was even killed on the spot.
The Tiangang Swordmaster was nearby, but he was also stopped by Lin Feng. He could only watch as Lin Feng killed the rest.
This news left the Guanchong Swordmaster and the rest in a daze.
Besides, the Shaoshang & Lixiong Swordmasters were even captured by Lin Feng too.
Opposite the Grand Moon Swordmaster, there was a middle-aged man with an oval face sitting. He seemed very stable too. He was the Shaoyang Swordmaster, who never left the mountain.
Even while he was always very stable, he felt extremely depressed too. His calm demeanor started to exhibit signs of distress. As a powerful sword cultivator in the Mount Shu Sword Sect, he had lost his face to see his disciples.
The Grand Moon Swordmaster, Guanchong Swordmaster, and Shaoze Swordmaster returned with injuries. Although news of this did not spread like wildfire, this still left Mount Shu in an unstable condition. Some of the people were starting to become worried.
They were all awaiting news from Jie Luoshi, hoping that he could succeed. After all, since Lin Feng was not around and the Sect-Returning Sword Casket was brought along, it would be logical that the Heaven-Destroying Sword would be seized.
But who knew that Jie Luoshi did not return, but news of his death reached.
This left the Shaoyang Swordmaster and the others shocked, furious and at a loss.
Ever since they challenged the Celestial Sect of Wonders, the Mount Shu Sword Sect had never gained the upper hand. On the other hand, the Mount Shu Sword Sect even sustained some setbacks.
The Grand Moon Swordmaster gritted his teeth and said, “Master has already brought the Saintly Celestial Sword out to meet Elder Tiangang. No matter what price we have to pay, Lin Feng must be killed. The death of Elder Jie and our humiliations must be avenged too!”
The Shaoze Swordmaster did not speak, but he turned dismal. The Guanchong Swordmaster suffered the most severe injury and only managed to keep his life after he was treated. Right now, as he heard the Grand Moon Swordmaster, his eyes moved and shone with a cold radiance.
The Shaoyang Swordmaster said in a deep voice, “Since Lin Feng has returned, Mount Yujing must have regained its ability to enter void space. Master and Elder Tiangang may defeat him if they collaborate. But I think it’s still a little far-fetched to think that we can kill him.”
“We have to force him into a trap and kill him instead!” As the Grand Moon Swordmaster spoke, he sensed something suddenly.
The Shaoyang Swordmaster had already left the main pavilion of the Grand Moon Sword Peak and peered into the distance. He saw a youth in purple walking leisurely in the mountains, as he wore a relaxed look on his face. He was like a tourist.
But the appearance of this guy revealed him to be the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders, Lin Feng!
A patch of auspicious clouds surfaced above Lin Feng’s head. The Two Elements of Creation Formation shone with a slight radiance as if it was revealing a world on its own. This world was filled with sword aura.
And above the Two Elements of Creation Formation, purple clouds rumbled and a mountain appeared subtly.
In space above Mount Shu, the sky opened and revealed a river of stars. A huge figure surfaced above Mount Shu. He was the Tiangang Swordmaster. He fixed his attention to Lin Feng and pointed his sword towards him.
Inside the main pavilion of the main peak of Mount Shu, the Cang Ming Swordmaster turned grim. He also stared at Lin Feng.
Lin Feng did not hide his aura and exhibited his powers, causing the entire Mount Shu to shake.
The cultivators from Mount Shu started to notice Lin Feng. For those with higher cultivations, they knew about the alliance to attack Mount Yujing. Since Lin Feng was here, it meant that the efforts to wipe out the Celestial Sect of Wonders had failed.
Whereas for the rest of the Mount Shu cultivators who were unaware of what’s going on, they were furious.
“He dares to come here. Does the Celestial Sect of Wonders think that they are above Mount Shu?”
“This guy is too outrageous. He is going to follow in the footsteps of the Blood River Daoist and the Immemorial Taotie – killed under the hands of the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation and the Saintly Celestial Sword!”
“Grandmaster will kill him for sure!”
The Grand Moon Swordmaster started to tremble, “This guy is too much!”
The Shaoyang Swordmaster squinted his eyes, “This is the first time that Mount Shu has been attacked over here ever since the Middle Ages. If we are able to overcome this crisis, we’ll rise by a level!”
The Shaoze Swordmaster stared at Lin Feng, “Even if we don’t kill him this time, we must also destroy the Heaven-Destroying Sword. Even if he retreats, he must still suffer!”
In void space outside of Mount Shu, almost at the same time, countless cracks appeared and someone walked out of it.
There were two people on the left. One of them was a tall and huge middle-aged man. He seemed like a gloomy thundercloud. Amidst his indifference, he carried a brutal strength.
He was the leader of the Purple Clouds Sect, the Thunderclouds Holy Man.
And beside him was an elder, who was the senior of the Thunderclouds Holy Man, the Blue Pavilion Holy Man.
The both of them looked serious as they observed Mount Shu from afar. They were confused about Lin Feng for a moment.
Beside them, there was an elder who wore a black costume. On the sleeves of his costume, there was the image of blue lightning. This elder looked very mighty. He was the leader of the Lightning Sword Sect, the Lightning Swordmaster.
He was a little perplexed as he looked at Mount Shu. His face flashed with disgust, hatred, fear, anxiety, envy and other emotions mixed together.
There was another middle-aged man who had the same expression as the Lightning Swordmaster.
This man was the leader of the Great Barren Sword Sect, the Great Barren Swordmaster.
They were all living in the shadow of the Mount Shu Sword Sect. Their feelings towards this Holy Ground were complex.
Even as they chose the Celestial Sect of Wonders to go against the Mount Shu Sword Sect, they were still unable to maintain their peace. As they looked at Lin Feng, they were still a little confused. It seemed as if they were expecting something, but they were not confident.
The Lightning Swordmaster and Great Barren Swordmaster did not speak, whereas the Eternal Life Heavenly Spear said in a low voice, “I am very envious of Lin Feng’s powers, but since the Saintly Celestial Sword and Tiangang Swordmaster are here, why did he choose to come here to fight them?”
No matter which power it was, their own mountain was the best place to fight for them. They would have the greatest advantage over there.
Attacking someone’s crib was courting death unless one was powerful beyond measure.
The Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation was also one of the most powerful formation in the Divine Lands.
Lin Feng’s Mount Yujing could transcend time and space. To a certain extent, he was probably the person who could cancel out the geographical advantage that his opponents possessed. That was because he could turn the battlefield into a neutral ground or even make it his own home ground.
But against the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation, Lin Feng might not be able to exert his dominance. Furthermore, since he was here, no one would watch as Lin Feng tried to overcome the formation.
That’s why no one could predict what Lin Feng was thinking. After hearing the words of the Eternal Life Heavenly Spear, the Priest of the Royal House shook his head slightly, “I don’t understand too.”
The Eternal Life Heavenly Spear creased his brows and said, “Don’t tell me he’s blinded by the advantage that he gained earlier on? This is not good.”
Even Liang Pan, Shi Yu, and Zhu Hongwu sensed Lin Feng’s arrival and watched him through layers of void space.
Previously, Lin Feng fought intensely with the Tiangang Swordmaster in void space, which caught the attention of the three of them. They observed the situation through their magic treasures. Now that Lin Feng had come to Mount Shu, even they were perplexed.
“Lin Feng is indeed exceptional. Even the Tiangang Swordmaster can’t handle him. His Two Elements of Creation Formation has also become stronger since Xiling City, as it’s able to trap the Saintly Celestial Sword.” Zhu Hongwu’s gaze flashed.
Everyone in the Divine Lands had a common consensus, which was that the Celestial Sect of Wonders was a cheat from head to toe.
That’s because, besides Mount Yujing, the Two Element of Creation Formation could also move independently. Lin Feng did not attack on his own, but he also included the powers of Mount Yujing and the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
“Lin Feng can emerge victorious over the Tiangang Swordmaster, but he can’t kill him. While the Two Elements of Creation Formation has indeed become stronger, I don’t think it can trap Xin Longsheng and the Saintly Celestial Sword for long.”
“Mount Yujing can repress the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation, but it can’t penetrate through it completely.”
“If the Tiangang Swordmaster controls the Saintly Celestial Sword, the powers of Mount Shu will be even stronger.”
Zhu Hongwu said in a deep voice, “As both parties clashed, I don’t think there will be an absolute winner. Even with the Higan Golden Bridge of my unfilial son, the Celestial Sect of Wonders may gain an upper hand over Mount Shu. Right now, I believe that the Celestial Sect of Wonders is already more powerful than the Mount Shu Sword Sect. But if they want to destroy the Mount Shu Sword Sect completely, they can dream on.”
Liang Pan remained calm, but he was also a little troubled. “Hongwu, your words are true. Since this is the case, why did he choose to attack Mount Shu through his own initiative and touch the Immortal Heaven Universal Formation? Fighting the Saintly Celestial Sword and Tiangang Swordmaster in void space and outnumbering them would have been a better way to ensure victory, isn’t it?”
