Chapter 941: The Lu Yuan Grand Sage Is Getting Stupider
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The Yu’ao Dragon King was in his Dragon Awe Auspicious Cloud form and was much smaller than before. At the same time, his demonic powers were evidently weaker. His Illusion and Reality Mystic Switching Spell was much more haphazard and jerky, with none of the fluidity of before.
Earlier, when Shi Tianhao used the Primordial Magnet Power in the Steel Polarity Mine to land a blow on him, it very nearly devastated the Yu’ao Dragon King completely. While he managed to escape through the Outer Realm which opened suddenly, his body was still injured and his vital spirit was damaged.
On the other hand, the Zu’e Grand Sage, under the protection of the Yu’ao Dragon King, was able to avoid that blow. However, he was a in rather foul mood too. Like the Yu’ao Dragon King, he barely avoided death.
To the Zu’e Grand Sage, who had lived fiercely and proudly for more than ten thousand years, this was an utter humiliation.
The two demons stared unkindly at Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao. Enmity was clear in their eyes.
Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao were both calm. To them, the most despicable enemies were those who hid in the dark.
The two of them stood shoulder-to-shoulder. Despite facing three Undying Demon Soul Third Level demons, both of them betrayed no fear.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage looked at the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage and chuckled, “So what? You two are here for the two b*stards too?”
While they were all demons, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage did not let his guard down around the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage.
Not only did the they not have good ties, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage once attacked the Zu’e Grand Sage before.
While the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage both strongly disliked Wang Lin Shi Tianhao, they were not exactly chums with the Lu Yuan Grand Sage too. Furthermore, with so many treasures near him, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage had no choice but to be careful too.
The Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage looked at the black mountain and the chain of Heaven-Carrying Ants around it. A look of greed flashed across the Zu’e Grand Sage’s face but the Yu’ao Dragon King shook his head at him and said, “There are more important issues.”
While the Yu’ao Dragon King was still severely injured, the Zu’e Grand Sage was still alive only because of him. Hence, the relationship between the two of them was still okay. Hence, he nodded and said, “Relax, I know.”
The Yu’ao Dragon King looked at the Lu Yuan Grand Sage and said in a low voice, “We have no interest in your items here. However, I want the two of them.”
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s lips cracked into a smile as he said, “Sure, help yourselves.”
The Zu’e Grand Sage’s gaze turned cold as he said, “Yuan Qing Lu Yuan, don’t waste this precious chance we are offering you!”
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage laughed coldly and said nothing. The Yu’ao Dragon King said quietly, “Yuan Qing Lu Yuan, aren’t you searching for someone?”
“Eh?” The Lu Yuan Grand Sage paused for a while and then, a fearsome gaze flashed in his eyes as he gave a death stare to the Yu’ao Dragon King and said, “You know where is the Ten Thousand Mantra Ape?”
The Yu’ao Dragon King said calmly, “He is my Big Senior, we have always been in contact.”
He opened his mouth a strand of hair flew out and floated in mid-air.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s gaze swept over it. The more he looked, the brighter his gaze became. “It really is a strand of hair from the Ten Thousand Mantra Ape. It appears that you do know where he is.”
The Yu’ao Dragon King nodded his head and said, “That’s right. Since you want to find my Big Senior to ask for guidance, I can recommend you. However, you must help me capture the disciples of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. My Third Senior is in the hands of the Master of the Celestial Sect. My master is being harassed by him too.”
“Catch the disciples of the Celestial Sect of Wonders and exchange them for my Third Senior. My Big Senior will naturally be elated and he may even meet you.”
The eyes of the Lu Yuan Grand Sage flashed with bright light. Not only did he admire the ape’s style all those years ago, he even managed to obtain a spell from the ape and through cultivating it, his own demon powers increased greatly. However, in terms of cultivation, he faced many difficulties.”
Hence, with the guidance of the ape, he would be able to achieve twice the results with half the work. With this attainment, he would surely be able to take the black mountain and the Heaven-Carrying Ants home with him.
However, the eyes of the Lu Yuan Grand Sage spun as he asked, “Who is the Master of the Celestial Sect.”
The Yu’ao Dragon King replied, “A new human strongman. His powers are vast but you need not worry. My master, the Golden Cicada, and the leader of my kind, the Earth Dragon King, are already hunting him. The other powerful demons too are paying special attention to him. If he makes one wrong step in the Barren Expanses, then he is doomed.”
The Lu Yan Grand Sage nodded his head and said, “If you want my help, you cannot touch anything in the Outer Realm.”
Even though the Yu’ao Dragon King showed the strand of hair, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage would not believe him so easily. He needed to wait for more verifications.
Before that, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage would not cough out the goodies he already possessed.
The Yu’ao Dragon King said coldly, “I am not after your stuff. You can relax.”
While he sensed the characteristic arrogance of the dragons from the Yu’ao Dragon King, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage did not get angry. Instead, he smiled mischievously at the Zu’e Grand Sage, who snorted coldly and said nothing. This was akin to a tacit agreement with what the Yu’ao Dragon King had proposed.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage finally nodded his head contentedly. Then, he looked fiercely at Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao and said, “While I’ll try to catch them alive, these two b*stards are indeed powerful. If I really cannot catch them alive, don’t blame me if I end up killing them.”
He looked at Shi Tianhao and said fiercely, “Furthermore, if you are doing a swap, then one is enough, right? I’ll try to keep the white-haired one for you. As for this b*stard, I want to skin him alive!”
The Yu’ap Dragon King looked at Shi Tianhao as his gaze turned cold. He could feel the deep wounds in his flesh hurting even more.
He said coldly, “Deal.”
The Lu Yuan Dragon King laughed and said, “Then, kindly help me wear him down first. I’ll go and deal with the white-haired one!”
As he said that, he lunged towards Wang Lin. The Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage did not mind. They had some understanding of the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s Ten Thousand Mirror Appearances. They also knew that between Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao, he was more capable of taking care of the former.
The two demons rushed towards Shi Tianhao, preventing him from coming to Wang Lin’s aid.
Wang Lin stared coldly at the Lu Yuan Grand Sage. He knew that he was the easier target. However, he did not retreat. The void around him split open and a fluttering, purple light blazing with light appeared.
Next to the flag stood a black-robed youth with a cold expression. It was the original soul of the Mahayana level magic treasure, the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner, who was known as the Heaven-Sealing Lord.
“Heaven-Sealing Lord, help my Little Junior. I’ll take care of this Lu Yuan,” said Wang Lin calmly.
The Heaven-Sealing Lord said nothing as he nodded his head. He lifted the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner and stood next to Shi Tianhao. He waved the flag, and the former Hallmaster of the Hall of the Dead, Xu Anda, appeared.
Xu Anda was one of the top human cultivators. When he unleashed his mana and powers, even if he was empty-handed and without a magic treasure, the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage might not be able to beat him.
Especially the Yu’ao Dragon King, who was seriously injured. By joining forces with Xu Anda to face off against the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage, Shi Tianhao was not at a disadvantage.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage looked at the Banner and thought, “What kind of magic treasure is this? It could control such a powerful human cultivator in his Immortal Soul Third Level. His spells are truly extraordinary and I’m not even confident that my Ten Thousand Mirror Appearances could reflect all of his spells. If he has another magic treasure on him, then I won’t be able to beat him.”
Then, he looked at Wang Lin coldly and said, “However, by giving this magic treasure to your junior, you are dead!”
“I can reflect all of your spells with my Ten Thousand Mirror Appearances. Unlike the little b*stard, you aren’t strong physically. I shall tear your Immortal Soul apart with my claws!”
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage stepped forward and lunged at Wang Lin through the void. However, Wang Lin’s expression was calm. He shed his human form and revealed his Immortal Soul Avatar, which was the Netherworld Taiji Diagram. The giant Taiji Diagram spun in the heavens and once again, a shadow of the Yama Imperial Pavilion appeared.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage smiled coldly and the circle of light on his forehead flashed. He shot out a similar Yama Imperial Pavilion.
However, he noticed that next to the Netherworld Taiji Diagram, not only did the Yama Imperial Pavilion appear, but a scene straight out of Hell appeared along with it as it engulfed the entire sky. Now, it was as if the entire battle was taking place in Hell.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage ignored it as he did the same thing as before. He reflected the Destructive Stage of the River Styx. While the two Destructive Stages of the River Styx were the same, neither side gave way as they crash into each other in mid-heaven.
Between the heaven and earth, tears began to appear. It was as if someone was tearing a painting into two as the boundaries between two worlds clashed against each other.
In the next instant, Wang Lin’s Destructive Stage of the River Styx began to tremble as it rapidly collapsed into a singular point. Finally, it condensed into a black ball as it floated quietly in mid-air above the Netherworld Taiji Diagram.
“Eh?” An ominous feeling rose in the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s heart. “This b*stard, how can his spell possess so much destructive powers? Wouldn’t using such a spell hurt his own Immortal Soul? If I do the same, my demon soul would be injured too…”
He paused for a while. “This b*stard can’t do anything about my Ten Thousand Mirror Appearances, so he’s using this as a fight to the end.”
After he thought through it, he controlled himself. He did not reflect Wang Lin’s Supreme Destruction Spell. However, as Wang Lin’s Yama Imperial Pavilion was now complemented by the Supreme Destructive Spell, it was naturally more powerful than the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s unadulterated Yama Imperial Pavilion. In the blink of an eye, it smashed the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s Yama Imperial Pavilion into bits!
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage opened his eyes, which shone brightly like the stars. He opened his mouth and spat out a bolt of white light. Only then was he able to block Wang Lin’s Yama Imperial Pavilion. He then prepared to counterattack. In his heart, he chuckled coldly, “Your final struggle, let me see how you…”
As he thought about that, he realized that the Netherworld Taiji Diagram now blazed with white light. In that instant, the destructive energy that he summoned with all his powers just now appeared once more as it turned into the dark, Destructive Stage of the River Styx once more.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage stared at it in shock as he cursed, “You cunning fellow, you have this trick up your sleeve.”
Then, he saw Wang Lin use his Supreme Destruction Spell once more to propel the Yama Imperial Pavilion in another wave of attack.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage did not hesitate anymore. Immediately, he reflected both the Supreme Destruction Spell and the Yama Imperial Palace and blocked Wang Lin’s attack. At the same time, he sought to rush forward for a chance to engage in close-quarters combat.
While both his physical body and demon soul were injured from the destructive powers in the Supreme Destruction Spell, he would still be able to attack if he had the Extreme Rebirth Spell.
However, as he watched blankly for Wang Lin to use the Extreme Rebirth Spell, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage realized that Wang Lin did nothing. Instead, he continued floating backwards as he dodged the evidently weaker attack by the Lu Yuan Grand Sage.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage was depressed and infuriated at the same time.
While Wang Lin’s Immortal Soul was damaged, but as he constantly cultivated the Supreme Destruction Spell and the Extreme Rebirth Spell, his tolerance and self-recovery abilities were stronger than the Lu Yuan Grand Sage. Hence, he was at an advantage.
Lin Feng’s Physical Spell Body witnessed everything but he did not do anything. He did not interrupt to provide both of them with guidance as he allowed them to improvise as training. However, when he saw this move, he shook his head and laughed, “Hehe, he is getting stupider.”
