Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The Golden Cicada had no choice but to look on as the Earth Dragon King challenged Lin Feng one-on-one.
Mount Yujing remained in the void surrounding the Divine Lands and did not come together with Lin Feng to the Barren Expanses. Lin Feng would not release the seal of the Heaven-Destroying Sword unless it was absolutely necessary to do so. However, that was Lin Feng’s plans. The Golden Cicada, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Heavenly Master Grand Sage and the other demons had no idea.
To the demons, they naturally factored the Heaven-Destroying Sword into consideration when they surrounded and attacked Lin Feng.
Hence, with the power that Lin Feng currently exhibited, there was a vast difference between taking turns to fight Lin Feng and attacking him at the same time.
However, what surprised the demons was the fact that Lin Feng was even more arrogant and wild than the Earth Dragon King.
The Earth Dragon King sought to fight him one-on-one, but Lin Feng completely disregarded it. while he fought with the Earth Dragon King, he still had the time and energy to use the Thunder Dragon Avatar and the Saros Magical Tree to stop the Lu Yuan Grand Sage and the Cang Heaven Spell Blade from escaping.
“You picked on my disciples and now, you want to leave? Do you think it’s that easy?” said Lin Feng calmly. “I have no quarrel with you. Stay there obediently and afterwards, my disciples will have a word with you.”
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage was both angered and shocked. All he saw was Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar and his Saros Magical Tree flying towards him and the Cang Heaven Spell Blade.
However, what delighted the Lu Yuan Grand Sage was the fact that the Xiangliu Grand Sage and the Azure Sky Dragon King, both of whom were itching to move, acted. They blocked the Thunder Dragon Avatar and the Saros Magical Tree.
“Eh, a single Earth Dragon King is not enough for you. You still want to involve other others in the battle, how stupid can you get?” thought the Lu Yuan Grand Sage. “Doing so will just further infuriate the Earth Dragon King.”
Just as the Lu Yuan Grand Sage predicted, the Earth Dragon King was beyond angry as his attacks became even more ferocious as he rushed towards Lin Feng.
In the next instance, when Lin Feng revealed the tiny seal. The Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s face changed rapidly.
He did not know what it was but he knew that it was no good for him. Fortunately, the tiny seal’s target was the Earth Dragon King. Even so, from afar, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage could feel his heart growing cold and his body getting paralyzed by fear.
Other demons too felt an ominous feeling when they noticed the tiny seal in Lin Feng’s hand.
Every demon present was at least in the Undying Demon Soul Third Level. Their perceptive abilities were all razor-sharp.
Every single demon there normally traversed through the land fearlessly. Right now, all of them felt a sense of danger from the tiny seal. Their hearts told them to get as far away from it as possible,
Even the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Heavenly Master Grand Sage, the Golden Cicada and the Earth Dragon King, all of whom were in the Vipralopa stage, felt the color draining from their faces. “What exactly is that? Why does it cause such a foreboding feeling?”
The monkey, who had been nonchalant all the way, suddenly stood upright as he arched his eyebrows and stared at the seal on Lin Feng’s palm.
His gaze flashed and realized that the original souls of the Saros Magical Tree and the Cang Heaven Spell Blade, Saros and Cang Heaven Blade, did not react. However, when Lin Feng’s own Thunder Dragon Avatar saw the seal, a look of apprehensiveness crossed its face.
“Is it only effective against us demons…” The monkey scratched the back of his head. “I have never seen this thing before and I have never heard of it. What exactly is it?”
All the demons by the side felt uncomfortable. The Earth Dragon King, who was directly opposite Lin Feng, was even more uncomfortable.
He had rarely felt this ominous feeling after he entered the Vipralopa Stage.
Some people would withdraw before danger. However, the Earth Dragon King’s choice was to charge ahead. By increasing his own strength, he sought to destroy this source of danger!
The Earth Dragon slashed towards Lin Feng with his claws as he roared.
Dragon Emperor’s Celestial Roar!
As the Earth Dragon King roared, there appeared to be only one voice left in the universe, and that’s the roar of a dragon.
Even the chirping of cicadas from the Golden Cicada quietened down till the point where it could not be heard.
The dragon roar, which reverberated through the heavens, made even the Lu Yuan Grand Sage, the Cang Heaven Spell Blade and the Yu’ao Dragon King uncomfortable. They felt as if their demon souls and original soul were about to be shattered.
The Xiangliu Grand Sage too trembled slightly. A dark red light could be seen in the pores of his nine, terrifying faces.
The White Tiger Grand Sage, the Azure Sky Dragon King and the Golden Roc Grand Sage all had serious expressions on their faces as they used their demon powers to resist.
Only the monkey, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and the Heavenly Master Grand Sage could retain their calm. This was because they were not the intended target of the Earth Dragon King’s Dragon Emperor Celestial Roar. Furthermore, they were far from the battle. If not, they could would have to do something.
The Earth Dragon King’s entire body glowed with golden light as he launched his two-pronged attack against Lin Feng.
However, before he managed to use the Dragon Emperor Celestial Roar, Lin Feng already started to use the little seal in his hand.
He flipped the seal and it pointed straight at the Earth Dragon King. On the bottom of the seal, there was an arcane, exquisite carving that was impossible to recognize. From the carving, a single ray of light shot out and landed on his forehead.
The Earth Dragon King opened his eyes. He was both enraged and shocked. While he thought of escaping, Lin Feng activated his Two Elements Origins-Returning Mystic World Spell at the same time he used the seal. This caught the Earth Dragon King in place.
Originally, when the Earth Dragon King activated his true form, he would have the ability to escape Lin Feng’s Two Elements Origins-Returning Mystic World Spell.
However, right now, he was caught. As the light from the seal approached him, the Earth Dragon King unconsciously lifted his claws to block his forehead. When it touched him, the light carved an odd engraving on his claw.
Right afterwards, Lin Feng then lifted the tiny seal, which turned into dust in mid-air and disappeared.
However, the Earth Dragon King was not happy, because he realized that at that moment, an odd power erupted from the carving on his claw. This odd power trembled and forcibly separated his demon soul from his real body!
In that instant, the Earth Dragon King lost control over his true form!
At first, he could control his true form easily. However, right now, the Earth Dragon King discovered to his horror that it was as if someone had amputated his limbs, gave him a prosthetic limb and then removed the prosthetic limb.
“How can this be?!” The Earth Dragon King thought in panic. He quickly regained his senses and thought, “This feeling, it was as if someone had separated my link with the Grand Celestial World!”
Unlike humans, when demons cultivated, they did so according to the will of heavens. They sought to be integrated together with the heaven and earth and then bring its essence into their bodies. Afterwards, they sought to replace the heaven and earth, fusing completely with it.
For a demon like the Earth Dragon King, who was in his Vipralopa stage, his connection with the heaven and earth had reached an extremely deep level.
While the Earth Dragon King was powerful, this did not mean that he looked down on everything. Let’s not talk about anyone else first, for the Origins Dragon King in the Black Sea was already more powerful than him.
Many thousand years ago, the Hades Tribe of the Barren Expanses too possessed many strong demons, with the most powerful one of all being the Hades Emperor.
The Earth Dragon King could still accept the fact that someone was able to defeat him. However, the fact that someone could cut off his ties with the Grand Celestial World and disconnect his connection with his true form was hair-raisingly horrifying to him.
While he could see that Lin Feng’s seal was a one-time use item, the Earth Dragon King had never seen something like this before. This made him even more scared.
When he saw that the Earth Dragon King’s demon soul and true form were separated, Lin Feng smiled and shook his head and thought, “It’s really quite useful.”
After Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao ascended into the Immortal Soul stage, other than giving everyone a chance at upgrading their magic treasures, the system also rewarded Lin Feng with a special gift after more than half of his immediate disciples reached the Immortal Soul stage.
The Heaven-Slicing Seal could cut off its target connection to the Grand Celestial World. The length of its effect depended on the mastery level of its target. It was a one-use item and could not be regenerated.
There were upgraded versions of it too, some of which could be cast over a wide area over multiple targets. However, that was only a variation of the Heaven-Slicing Seal’s properties. Lin Feng was still trying to figure out how he could obtain more of it.
However, he was interested in both the Heaven-Slicing Seal and the Dimensional Seal. Both were extremely effective against demons.
Of course, it could cut off an Immortal Soul stage cultivator’s connection with the heaven and earth. However, that would have been wasted.
Against demons, as long as the time was right, it could completely turn the battle around.
Like right now, when the Vipralopa Stage demon, the Earth Dragon King, was dealt with this blow he too found it a deeply unpleasant feeling. Not only was his true form sealed, even his demonic powers were affected.
When the other demons saw this, all of them were shocked. They looked even more apprehensively at Lin Feng.
The monkey and the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage could both clearly see the situation the Earth Dragon King was in. However, no one knew how many of these seals did Lin Feng possess.
The Azure Sky Dragon King was shocked as he quickly beat the Thunder Dragon Avatar back and rushed to the Earth Dragon King’s side to protect him. Now, he could not be bothered about the pride of the Earth Dragon King.
The eyes of the monkey, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and the Heavenly Master Grand Sage flashed as they thought, “The Earth Dragon King’s demon soul and body are not injured. However, his connection was just temporarily cut off. As time passed, he would slowly recover, but how long would that take…”
At the same time, the Golden Cicada and White Tiger Grand Sage rushed towards Lin Feng. The Golden Cicada wanted the same thing as the monkey.
While they were uncomfortable with the Earth Dragon King’s arrogant ways, the Golden Cicada depended on him for his own survival. Everyone else could enjoy the battle except him, as he could not afford to allow Lin Feng to beat the Earth Dragon King.
As long as he held Lin Feng off long enough, the Earth Dragon King would gradually recover. After he experienced such a major setback, the Golden Cicada was sure that the Earth Dragon King would change his mindset.
As to whether Lin Feng had another seal, the Golden Cicada could only bet on his luck. If Lin Feng did possess another seal, he could only hope that his Unique Gift would be powerful enough to hold Lin Feng off.
The White Tiger Grand Sage too was arrogant. He would not run from a fight without at least taking part in it first.
Lin Feng looked at the demons that were charging towards him and smiled slightly. His form flashed as he used his Celestial Sect Teleportation Technique. Instead of retreating, he advanced forward. Soon, he was before the Xiangliu Grand Sage and the Saros Magical Tree!
