Chapter 958: The Regretful Heavenly Charms Grand Sage
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
“Don’t mention it,” said Lin Feng. As he said that, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage felt as if something was amiss.
The golden dragon tail in her hands started to tremble violently as if it was about to explode. It was as if the chaos in the universe were about to form a new world. At the same time, it was as if a world was about to collapse.
“It’s still his sword will!” The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage reacted immediately.
Before this, because of the violent sword will of the Heaven-Destroying Sword Formation, the Earth Dragon King’s tail was unable to change despite its master’s orders.
Right now, the brutal sword will that Lin Feng had kept inside the tail burst forth suddenly.
Unlike the Earth Dragon King, who had no choice and could not react on time, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage devoted all her attention to it. Her powers reached a maximum. Just now, when she allied with Lin Feng to fight the Earth Dragon King, more than half of her attention was actually devoted to Lin Feng.
Lin Feng guarded himself against her, so how could she not guard herself against him?
However, Lin Feng did not expect to use the dragon tail to harm the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage. However, he sought to use the sword will to completely blow up the vast amount of energy in the tail, which was from the almost endless amount of demonic energy and physical essence the Azure Sky Dragon King had accumulated over the years.
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage was already in the Vipralopa stage. Even if the Earth Dragon King attacked with all his powers, she was not afraid.
However, the power in the dragon tail sought to take everything down along with it without the slightest trace of holding back.
This power appeared to belong to the Earth Dragon King himself. With his tail as sacrifice, he was about to launch a powerful attack!
Even with the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage’s own mastery and abilities, she still had to approach this delicately and carefully at such close distance.
If she did not want to be injured by this power, then the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage should try to either avoid or defend against it at all costs. Doing so, however, would lose her the tail as she could only watch helplessly as the tail blew up.
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage’s eyes flashed and a faint light enveloped her body, which appeared to have been cloaked by a layer of purple light.
An impossibly terrifying power flashed in the silent, black space, inducing fear and terror everywhere.
This was the manifestation of the Hades’ Dark Mantra that the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage adapted for her own use. Quickly, she performed gestures with her hands as her entire body appeared fainter and fainter, like smoke and cloud.
The flashing purple cloud swallowed the dragon tail that was about to explode. A vast, mystic force forced the dragon tail to change!
The dragon tail, which had been violently vibrating, appeared to be calming down.
Not only that, Lin Feng could feel another power. He could clearly sense that it was the sword will he had left in the dragon tail.
“You are truly extraordinary, Heavenly Charms Grand Sage. To what I know, you have just finished your Cardinal Tribulations, right? Such power is truly exceptional,” laughed Lin Feng as he pounced towards the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage.
If she were a true ally, then he would not mind her obtaining some benefits off him. As he himself had obtained the dragon claw, it seemed only fair that she should get the dragon tail.
However, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage was neither friend nor foe. For short-term interest, she allied together with Lin Feng. Soon after, they might become enemies again. Lin Feng did not like making enemies and he was fine with letting small things go. However, the dragon tail that the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage obtained would be of immense benefits to her.
When Lin Feng attacked, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage shook her head.
In a quiet environment, she was confident of stopping the dragon tail from its incessant writhing. Then, she would remove Lin Feng’s sword will to prevent it from exploding.
However, Lin Feng would not just let her subdue the tail. Faced with Lin Feng’s attack, if she still chose to subdue the tail, she would have to turn her back to the enemy and be trapped between a rock and a hard place.
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage too was decisive. Immediately, she threw the tail to one side. However, she was not so easy to take care of. Faced with the exploding dragon tail, she inserted her own mana into it as she tried to bring it one step closer to explosion.
While Lin Feng’s sword will was a fuse that could trigger the energy inside the tail to explode, no one knew if Lin Feng was capable enough to subduing the dragon tail after she abandoned it.
Hence, under the combined powers of both Lin Feng and the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the tail of the Earth Dragon King completely exploded in the void as it turned into an unlimited amount of demonic powers and dragon essence. Spreading everywhere, they blanketed the space where Lin Feng and the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage were at.
The powerful explosion threw the universe into chaos. The center of the explosion was formless and unable to materialize into anything.
With only a dragon claw in hand, Lin Feng leisurely started to concentrate all the blood and Qi together. While much were lost during the explosion, there were still quite a lot of it left.
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage did the same thing. After she collected a bunch of it, her form disappeared in the void.
“Master Lin, we’ll see each other soon. Take care.” The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, who fell for Lin Feng’s ploy, still kept a peaceful tone. However, the complicated emotions in her words still revealed themselves.
Lin Feng smiled and shook his head, “Your reaction is fast indeed.”
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage decided to leave and Lin Feng decided not to pursue her. Instead, he stopped and started to subdue the front right claw of the Earth Dragon King.
The imprint on the Earth Dragon King’s claw was completely gone. Like the tail, it began to vibrate. As the claw started to curl up, light, golden light and a vast amount of blood and Qi started to flow out and took shape.
Looking at the shape, it appeared to be that of a dragon. Without the suppression by the Heaven-Slicing Seal, the dragon claw, like the dragon tail, re-established connection with the Earth Dragon King. With this mind, the Earth Dragon King was able to cultivate the claw into an avatar.
However, the Earth Dragon King did not plan on turning his claw into an avatar. Instead, he wanted it to return to his side.
Lin Feng, naturally, would not give him the chance as he immediately subdued the claw.
Light appeared to flash in the void and a path appeared to have opened. The Black Sea started to fade in and out of sight and one could hear the rise and fall of waves in the sea.
Lin Feng looked at it with a half-smile. As he used his own powers to completely subdue the claw, the light before his eyes disappeared too.
“That’s the Black Sea, one of the Grand Celestial Seven Seas and today the home of the dragon. Heh!” Lin Feng laughed. “The Earth Celestial Dragon is indeed far-sighted. He even left an escape path for himself.”
The light from the Black Sea was the one that whisked the Earth Dragon King and the Azure Sky Dragon King to safety. Looking at that seemingly faint but immensely powerful and mystical energy, Lin Feng did not even want to stop it with his Fences of Heaven, his Two Elements Origins-Returning Mystic World Spell or his Celestial Sect Teleportation Technique.
The Black Sea was truly in the hands of the dragon. As long as a Vipralopa stage dragon was there, any enemy of the dragons who entered would be suppressed by the powers of the entire Black Sea.
At the same time, the Black Sea was the only one out of the Grand Celestial Seven Seas to be completely controlled by a single power.
Even the Great Void Sect, with their Supreme Heavenly Mirror, might not be able to penetrate it.
Many years ago, when the Hades Emperor ruled the Barren Expanses, while the dragons nominally bent the knee, they still preserved a certain degree of autonomy. This was entirely due to the existence of the Black Sea. While they could not be said to have complete sovereignty over the Black Sea, they were indeed more independent than the other demons.
Looking at the Black Sea, Lin Feng thought of the White Tiger Grand Sage and his gate into the Starry Sea.
This was an unexpected surprise. Before he came to the Barren Expanses, he had not expected it. To be precise, he did not even predict it before the White Tiger Grand Sage revealed this secret of his.
Through the formation he could cast with the Mountain and River Void Crucible and the Nine Familial Green Bronze Crucibles of Emptiness, he was able to enter another Outer Realm. While it was close to the Ancient Desolate Galaxy, it was not its actual path.
It was not hard to create a temporary passageway. However, he did not know what to expect there.
After all, it was once the training ground of the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage. Who knew if she could sense his presence?
It was even possible that it was a trap by the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage who was waiting for him to fall into it. She did not exactly know that Lin Feng had discovered the Outer Realm. However, if she sensed his entrance, she might be able to organize a welcome for him.
After all, to what Lin Feng knew, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage possessed a real entrance into the Starry Sea and she could enter and exit at will.
Before the Middle Ages, the entrance of the Ancient Desolate Galaxy was fixed. However, it was not in the Divine Lands or the Barren Expanses. Instead, it was in the void between the two.
However, during the battle that concluded the Middle Ages, the Hades Emperor led the demons to re-take the entrance. Then, the Starry Sea began to change and its entrance changed along with it. That was how it ended up like this today.
Currently, there were six entrances into the Ancient Desolate Galaxy. Everyone knew that the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Ancient Ape Demons and the dragons each possessed one.
The location of the last three was unknown. Of course, now, one knew that the White Tiger Grand Sage possessed one.
Lin Feng was filled with suspicion. While the Hades Emperor had fallen and the Hades Tribe had hid themselves in a Middle World, the Hades Tribe should have kept one entrance for themselves seeing as how they were masters of the Starry Sea many years ago.
Lin Feng tried to probe the White Tiger Grand Sage’s entrance. He could feel its mystic powers, which he needed more time to fully understand.
The White Tiger Grand Sage obtained the door not too long ago. While he could summon the powers of the stars from it, he still did not know how to enter it.
Then, before long, Lin Feng snatched it away from him.
“Ancient Desolate Galaxy, Ancient Desolate Galaxy…” Lin Feng thought. “This matter has far-reaching implications and I should not be hasty. I shall plan for it first.”
Here, he put his thought aside. He turned and walked next to his Thunder Dragon Avatar.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage was already captured and the Cang Heaven Spell Blade still sought to resist. However, he was captured and subdued by Lin Feng.
Lin Feng looked at the void far away, which split open. A figure tumbled out of the void before him. It was the monkey and behind him, the Yu’ao Dragon King followed.
