Chapter 883: Crushed Sword Mind
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Lin Feng looked at the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation in front of him quietly and conjured a sword spell with his right hand.
The blood-red bow that pierced through the sword formation went all the way down, towards the white beam of air that seemed like a heavenly pillar at the bottom of the formation.
The blood-red Heaven-Destroying Sword revealed its form and floated amidst the white beam of air. The broken pieces of sword casket that followed the Heaven-Destroying Sword started to spread around, as they floated within the formation.
But what was shocking was that the Heaven-Destroying Sword did not attempt to destroy the formation. Rather, it released a brutal light and hostile gases that spread within the formation.
As everyone watched with stunned looks, the vast beam of air started to turn blood-red gradually!
“Impossible! Even if it’s able to sneak into the formation with the help of the Sect-Returning Sword Casket, it should have been suppressed within the formation!” Xin Longsheng was absolutely appalled, which was a rare sight.
The blood-red color of the formation turned brighter and brighter. From the beam of air, it slowly extended towards the entire Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation.
The countless swords within the formation started to shake violently at this point.
“Kengkengkengkeng!” The piercing sounds of metal clanging and cracking started to resonate around. At the start, the piercing sound was still bearable. But towards the end, it became extremely deafening.
The countless swords in the Immortal Heaven Sword Formation were starting to be destroyed one by one.
They were all broken into half at their blades. The upper half of the swords would be converted into flowing lights that would eventually disappear, leaving only the bottom half of the swords around.
But these broken swords did not seem to reveal any signs of decadence, nor did they develop any ill intentions towards the force that broke them. On the other hand, they started to cheer, as if their restraints had been removed.
The broken swords expressed their feelings of hatred towards the Saintly Celestial Sword and broken pieces of Sect-Returning Sword Casket above them.
All these broken swords seemed to have their own thoughts and emotions. As they entered a state of fury, they started to destroy the broken pieces of Sect-Returning Sword Casket around them. They converted these pieces to nothing.
After destroying these broken pieces, the broken parts of these swords started to flash with a black radiance. The black light extended and consolidated into sword blades on their own!
Each of the swords seemed to have regained their original look. But it’s just that the broken parts were replaced by black light.
Following that, the black lights flashed continuously and caused the swords to turn black completely.
In an instant, the entire Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation had converted into a world of intersecting blood-red and pitch-black color.
The formation spells and patterns started to transform tremendously under the influence of the black swords and blood-red beam of air. As a result, its appearance changed completely in an instant. The previous formation patterns had all disappeared.
The formation spells and patterns that flashed with a bright white color previously had turned dark, which was very petrifying.
Hostile gases filled the entire Mount Shu and the Heavens and Earth turned darker at this point.
Initially, as they saw that Mount Yujing, the Bell of Destiny, Two Elements of Creation Formation, Heaven-Destroying Sword, Higan Golden Bridge and Lin Feng were all involved in the battle, everyone watching the battle believed that Lin Feng was susceptible to external attacks. But now, witnessing this frightening scene made them take back what they thought initially.
Lin Feng looked at the sword formation that had changed completely and he remained calm.
Whereas everyone from Mount Shu was shocked. Even the Tiangang Swordmaster and Cang Ming Swordmaster were at a loss for words.
In an instant, the entire Mount Shu was dead silent. But following that, there was a maniacal explosion of emotions.
“Impossible! Impossible! Impossible!” The Grand Moon Swordmaster cried in horror, “This is impossible! This is utterly impossible!”
The Guanchong Swordmaster was in a daze, while he chanted to himself, “How did this happen? How did this happen? How did he do this? How did he do this?”
The Shaoze Swordmaster also opened his mouth, “The Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation of Mount Shu has become a property of Lin Feng just like that?! But, why?”
The Shaoyang Swordmaster was trembling, “There’s no logic in this. Even if he could attack the sword formation with the broken pieces of the Sect-Returning Sword Casket, even if he could destroy the sword formation, even if he could penetrate the sword formation, how was he able to turn the sword formation into something that belongs to him?”
The sword cultivators of Mount Shu had always been very arrogant. But if someone could overcome their Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation, they would not deny it even if they might not be too happy about it.
That’s because someone actually did it before.
That was the only time that it happened in the history of Mount Shu. There was no other time when it occurred.
During the War of the Two Worlds during the Middle Ages, the strongest Demonic Emperor of the demon clan, Shenyuan, once overcame the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation. He even killed the founder of the Mount Shu Sword Sect, Ren Changmei.
But Shenyuan only used his powers to overcome the formation. He did not obtain control of the formation just like what Lin Feng did.
Furthermore, Lin Feng managed to do it using the Heaven-Destroying Sword, the archenemy of the Mount Shu Sword Sect!
What was the most bitter pill to swallow was that they didn’t even know how Lin Feng managed to do it.
During this process where Lin Feng seized control of the formation, the countless swords in the formation were initially under the command of the Saintly Celestial Sword. But they somehow decided to change allegiance to the Heaven-Destroying Sword without hesitation. Besides, they even treated the Saintly Celestial Sword and Mount Shu like enemies after they turned on them.
Everything in the past seemed to turn illusory now.
The entire Mount Shu could not believe what just happened. Those who were of lower cultivations were at a loss of what to do and fear gripped them. They felt as if something in their minds had crashed onto the ground and converted to powder.
Whereas those of higher cultivations – in the Nascent Soul Stage or Immortal Soul Stage – shook their heads in disbelief. They felt that their values, external perspective and life perspective had all collapsed, and the world that they were in was unreal. They felt like they were in a nightmare.
For some of the Nascent Soul Stage cultivators, their Nascent Souls even left their bodies beyond their control. Their Nascent Souls turned dimmer and surfaced with frightening cracks. They seemed like broken ceramic tools at this point.
Whereas for the Immortal Soul Stage cultivators, their bodies alternated between their Immortal Soul Avatars and human form, as if they had lost control.
Xin Longsheng turned pale and his gaze flashed continuously. He felt as if he could no longer control his state of mind, as countless thoughts flooded his mind.
He even thought of this: “If Junior Jie sees this, his unstable sword mind will completely be crushed…”
His body jerked and his vision shifted between the Heaven-Destroying Sword, Lin Feng and Saintly Celestial Sword. Eventually, it remained on the Heaven-Destroying Sword.
And as Mount Shu was in this mess, a voice came from the sword formation.
“Heaven! Destroying!” These two words were repeated with a pause between them. The voice sounded very indifferent, but soothing at the same time.
After these two words were mentioned, no more sound was heard. Whereas hostile gases started to shoot towards the sky from the sword formation.
The sword formation was now underneath the Tiangang Swordmaster and the Saintly Celestial Sword. Originally, the Saintly Celestial Sword was still gathering the sword aura of the sword formation towards its body.
But now, it was engulfed by the hostile gases. The sword formation combined with Mount Yujing to trap the Saintly Celestial Sword, one from the bottom and one from the top.
At this point, even if the Tiangang Swordmaster or anyone else in the Mount Shu Sword Sect sacrificed their lives, they would not be able to help the Saintly Celestial Sword to escape.
The Higan Golden Bridge burst and landed on Mount Yujing. It combined with Mount Yujing, the Bell of Destiny and Two Elements of Creation Formation to suppress the Tiangang Swordmaster and Saintly Celestial Sword.
After losing the power of the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation, it was obvious that Mount Shu and the Saintly Celestial Sword were in an extremely disadvantageous position right now.
Lin Feng’s figure flashed and he had already entered the formation. He extended his hand to grab the hilt of the Heaven-Destroying Sword.
He looked extremely calm right now, “Mount Shu Sword Sect, receive this Heaven-Destroying Sword Formation of mine.”
Not only the black and white Holy Light of Creation, Lin Feng’s entire powers were converted to the Heaven-Destroying Sword Qi, which combined with the Heaven-Destroying Sword.
His mind was connected to Mount Yujing at this point. As streaks of radiance landed down, they supplemented the Heaven-Destroying Sword.
As he guided the sword, the Heaven-Destroying Sword Formation turned into a black light that flooded the Heavens and Earth.
The hostile gases of the entire Greater World gathered and converted into an all-conquering sword that pointed at the Saintly Celestial Sword!
Right now, everyone watching this scene became at a loss for words. The white sword that the Heavens and Earth converted into earlier had now disappeared. What replaced it was a blood-red sword that was as mighty as the white sword.
In this instant, they could only feel the Heavens and Earth becoming this blood-red sword.
The sword pointed towards the Saintly Celestial Sword that had nowhere to run anymore.
The Tiangang Swordmaster shut his eyes before opening it gradually again. His entire person converted into flowing lights that combined with the Saintly Celestial Sword. AS he combined with the sword, he mustered up the last remaining streak of sword radiance from the main mountain peak of Mount Shu to attack forward.
At this point, all the swords in the world had turned. Amidst the hostile gases, they worked together to overcome the Saintly Celestial Sword that they had once revered.
During the Battle at Xiling City, as the Saintly Celestial Sword appeared, it controlled all swords in the world. As it commanded, no sword would dare to go against it.
In the entire Divine Lands, it was the reason for the existence of other swords.
But there was one exception.
It was the Heaven-Destroying Sword!
The Heaven-Destroying Sword was like a rebel. While it was alone, it faced the almighty Saintly Celestial Sword defiantly.
Was it being a rebel, or was it being a revolutionary?
Even if it went against the entire world, it was unafraid. The king of all swords did not make it fearful, while the criticisms from the rest did not make it submit either!
And today, the situation had changed completely!
The countless swords in the past that had went against it now turned to it. Wherever the Heaven-Destroying Sword went, all the other swords would submit to it now. They wanted to overthrow the almighty king of swords from the past!
The blood-red sword converted from the Heavens and Earth slashed towards the Saintly Celestial Sword suddenly!
A powerful light expanded in all directions and filled the entire universe. In the minds of all the observers, they could not see anything else but the boundless sword radiance of the Heaven-Destroying Sword right now!
