Chapter 954: The Ominous Feeling in the Golden Cicada’s Heart
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The Two Elements Origins-Returning Mystic World Spell enveloped the Xiangliu Grand Sage. As he stared helplessly, the originally-open inter-world passage into the Black Loch World closed once more and the gurgling, black water that swirled around his body disappeared too.
The Fences of the Heavens around the Xiangliu Grand Sage sought to not only block him off, but also to seal him completely off from the outside world.
The mystical and power energy trapped the Xiangliu Grand Sage, preventing him from using his powers. Likewise, his demon powers were weakened slowly, layer by layer.
Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar’s powers could not be compared to his own. However, the Xiangliu Grand Sage was not the monkey.
If Lin Feng himself used the Two Elements Origins-Returning Mystic World Spell, even the monkey would be unable to escape from it and all he could do was to await his death.
If it were the White Tiger Grand Sage or the Azure Sky Dragon King who was trapped by the Two Elements Origins-Returning Mystic World Spell cast by the Thunder Dragon Avatar, they too would have to reveal their true forms to escape. If not, they would meet with the same fate.
Hence, regardless whether it was the White Tiger Grand Sage or the Azure Sky Dragon King, both were close to completing their Cardinal Tribulations and their actual powers were similar. However, the Xiangliu Grand Sage had just begun with his Cardinal Tribulations.
Hence, as he was trapped by Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar’s Two Elements Origins-Returning Mystic World Spell, the Xiangliu Grand Sage was unable to escape even if he had already revealed his true form.
Trapped by the power of heaven and earth and completely unable to summon the power of heaven and earth, the Xiangliu Grand Sage could only watch helplessly as the Heaven-Destroying Sword Qi approached him!
“No!” The remaining eight human faces of the Xiangliu Grand Sage all cried out desperately. In the next instant, the terrifyingly violent sword radiance sliced them clean from his huge body.
Black, poisonous blood spurted out from the Xiangliu Grand Sage’s body as they contaminated an entire patch of the void.
The Xiangliu Tribe possessed the deadliest forms of poison, particularly the one found in their blood. In the Antiquity Age, a Vipralopa stage Xiangliu was killed. After his death, the poison from his blood turned an entire patch in the Barren Expanses barren. Even after many years, the poison was not completely removed.
Right now, he had lost all hopes of surviving. All he could do was to injure or kill Lin Feng.
This was the second powerful demon to die at the hands of Lin Feng after the Zu’e Grand Sage. The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Heavenly Master Grand Sage and the Golden Roc Grand Sage all furrowed their brows tightly. However, they did nothing.
At this point, Lin Feng still had strength left. Joining the fight now would not benefit them but instead, others may benefit from their participation in the battle.
The Earth Dragon King was a prime example.
Other than the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and company, even the monkey, who completely did not care about the Xiangliu Grand Sage, could not help but to sweep his gaze over the Earth Dragon King.
Right now, the Earth Dragon King’s connection between his soul and physical body was separated by Lin Feng’s Heaven-Slicing Seal. He had lost control over this true form.
With his Vipralopa Stage cultivation and the body of an Immemorial Celestial Dragon, he was a desirable prize for all. The notion of capturing him was tempting enough for many to attempt.
To the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and company, the best option would be for them to encircle and kill Lin Feng. If they could not do that, then they should attempt to profit off the Golden Cicada and the Earth Dragon King. Their upcoming actions depended entirely on the battle.
The few demons did nothing, but they continued to fixate their gazes on the battle as they waited for the right moment to strike.
Right now, after Lin Feng struck the Xiangliu Grand Sage, the Golden Cicada acted too.
Innumerable black cicadas, covering the heaven and earth and turning into an endless sea of black insects, crashed against Lin Feng’s Nullifying of the Two Extremities attack, which was further strengthened by his Holy Light of Creation.
In the center of the sea of cicadas, one could hear the Golden Cicada sigh.
In that sigh, the millions of black cicadas suddenly changed form. The many cicadas came together and turned into black, shimmering light. It was as if they had all turned into an ocean.
In this ocean, there was no sign of life. Silent and quiet, there was only the feeling that something terrifying existed within.
The deafening chirping of the cicadas quietened down and in that moment, those present were disoriented as the cacophony turned into a deathly silence.
However, the destructive power grew even larger, striking fear into the hearts of everyone.
The silent sea lay on top of Lin Feng’s Nullifying of the Two Extremes. Originally, the Nullifying of the Two Extremes expanded non-stop as it devoured everything and sought to turn everything into an empty light. Faced with this black sea, however, the light was continuously destroyed and reduced to nothing itself.
Regardless whether it was Lin Feng, who was facing the black sea, or the monkey, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Heavenly Master Grand Sage or the Golden Roc Grand Sage and even the frantic Earth Dragon King, they were all stunned by this terrifying light.
“Good!” Many of them cried out in unison.
Lin Feng stared at the silent sea and colored lights shone in his eyes as he thought, “The black sea before is me is formed from his demon powers. It simulated the waves of the Death Sea. While it isn’t the waves of the Death Sea exactly, it is still quite similar.”
“The efforts of the Golden Cicada are not wasted. He really did manage to uncover some secrets of the Death Sea.”
While their paths were different, both human cultivators and demons sought to improve themselves so they could try and pass the Three Tribulations of Destiny.
Legend had it that the collapse of destiny and the apocalypse were split into three segments. The first was known as the Alpha Destiny Tribulations where the Five Decays of Heaven and Man would take place.
Those who survived the first segment could be said to have passed the Vipralopa stage.
The second tribulation of the Three Tribulations of Destiny was known as The Great Calamity.
Experiencing the First Tribulation would require one to communicate with the mysterious Death Sea, one of the Grand Celestial Seven Seas. Once there was connection, then one would be able to bring about the Alpha Destiny Tribulations on himself.
Experiencing the Second Tribulation required one to establish a connection with the Death Sea too. However, this time, one would bring about the Great Wave of the Death Sea upon oneself!
The Great Wave of the Death Sea was known as The Great Calamity!
Right now, the Golden Cicada had revealed his true form and sought to use all his powers in this fight. Hence, he decided to play his ace card, which was a simulation of the Great Wave of the Death Sea.
The silent, terrifying and absolute power completely suppressed Lin Feng’s Two Elements of Creation Spell. If not for his Holy Light of Creation, it was likely that his Nullifying of the Two Extremes attack would have been destroyed.
Even now, it was being beaten back.
“Master Lin’s spells are special and powerful. Even with the Alpha Destiny Tribulation, I won’t be able to approach you. Helpless as I am, I have no choice but to use this incomplete method on you. May you advise me on it,” said the Golden Cicada’s calm voice from the depths of the black sea.
Before Lin Feng, there was the Golden Cicada’s black sea. Behind him, the Xiangliu Grand Sage writhed about in his death throes. However, Lin Feng arched his eyebrows and asked, “Master Golden Cicada’s move is indeed powerful. However, it is taxing on you too, right?”
The Golden Cicada did not reply. As the waves in the black sea surged, an apocalyptic power could be felt coming from it. However, there was no sound.
In the sea, it was as if everything was about to be extinguished and reduced to nothing, even sound itself.
However, the Golden Cicada was unable to relax, because when he was faced with his terrifying attack, Lin Feng did not use his Celestial Sect Teleportation Technique but instead, he used his Two Elements of Creation Spell. Once more, he casted another giant spell formation to fight against the Golden Cicada’s black ocean.
As the spell formation approached destruction, a look of satisfaction crossed Lin Feng’s face.
In no rush, he smiled and said, “Indeed, the disparity may be wide, but like your Nine Netherworld Ten-sided Dual Garbhadhātu, it is an amalgamation of your Buddhist and demon powers.”
“This attack of yours is indeed extraordinary. However, it is not the real Great Wave of the Death Sea, The Great Calamity.”
As Lin Feng said that, he once against another Two Elements of Creation Formation to block the Golden Cicada. As he waved his two hands, the Heaven-Destroying Sword Qi sliced at the Xiangliu Grand Sage’s poison that was spraying about.
It then ceased its attack against the Xiangliu Grand Sage but instead, turned towards the monkey, who was spectating the fight, and attacked!
This move shocked everyone!
At this time, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Heavenly Master Grand Sage, the Earth Dragon King and the Golden Roc Grand Sage were all shocked. “What exactly is the Master of the Celestial Sect doing? Is he really his arrogant?”
The monkey rarely appeared in the Barren Expanses. However, the name of the Ten Thousand Mantra Ape was still loud and famous like thunder. Right now, he revealed his true form to battle against Lin Feng, which further established his credentials. Doing so made everyone aware that the monkey was indeed more powerful than what he had rumored to be.
It could even be said that if one wished to identify the most powerful demon present, it would be the monkey.
Without considering the problem of the Alpha Destiny Tribulation, he was much stronger than the Earth Dragon King and the Golden Cicada in terms of actual battling abilities.
When Lin Feng caught the Lu Yuan Grand Sage and the Cang Heaven Spell Blade, that was still acceptable. However, when he went up to provoke the monkey, it was incomprehensible to many.
Even the monkey himself was shocked. He stared at Lin Feng’s oncoming Heaven-Destroying Sword Qi as his gaze flashed non-stop. He opened his mouth to reveal his white teeth as the hairs on his body stood.
The Golden Cicada too was confused. He was the clearest about the relationship between the monkey and him.
The monkey was never allies with him, but enemies. Even though the Nine Infants Grand Sage was captured by Lin Feng and the monkey wanted him back, it was more because of his value against the Golden Cicada.
Right now, the only demon that could possibly help Lin Feng out was the monkey.
The Golden Cicada believed that had he not possessed the Golden Hoop Incantation, the monkey would have joined Lin Feng in beating him up.
“The Golden Hoop Incantation…” Here, the Golden Cicada’s heart missed a beat as an ominous feeling rose.
Then, he realized that Lin Feng’s Heaven-Destroying Sword Qi shone with a few, bizarre light. The Golden Cicada was extremely familiar with this light. When he saw it, he lost his usual calm.
As he attacked, he shouted at the White Tiger Grand Sage and the Azure Sky Dragon King, “Stop him!”
At that time, the monkey stared at the odd light and his mouth grew wider and wider. He smiled like a maniac.
Then, he did something that no one seemed to understand. Faced with Lin Feng’s brutally powerful Heaven-Destroying Sword Qi, he treated it was if it was nothing. He did not try to defend himself against it, much less escape from it.
