Chapter 959: Giving Blood
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
When the Earth Dragon King began fighting with Lin Feng, the monkey immediately enveloped the Yu’ao Dragon King with his demon powers. The Azure Sky Dragon King could only stare helplessly.
However, after everything that had happened, both the Azure Sky Dragon King and the Yu’ao Dragon King felt a tremble of fear in their hearts. If not for the monkey’s ‘protection’, the Yu’ao Dragon King, if he did not do anything to protect himself like the Earth Dragon King and the Azure Sky Dragon King, would have been killed by Lin Feng’s powerfully brutal sword.
If the Earth Dragon King did not regain his connection with the Greater World, he would not have been able to escape into the Black Sea. While the Azure Sky Dragon King and him could take more than one hit, they would be unable to protect the Yu’ao Dragon King.
When he saw Lin Feng, the monkey said, “Master of the Celestial Sect, I owe you a great favor this time round and I thank you for it now. I will repay you in kind. However, if my Third Junior or Fourth Junior had offended you and your disciples, I can only hope that you will forgive them.”
Lin Feng did not reply him but instead smiled and asked, “How about that old monk?”
“He is slimy instead as he had prepared escape paths after escape paths for himself. I am surprised too that you were able to get rid of my Golden Hoop and hence, I wasn’t really prepared for it,” said the monkey with a smile. “However, after I whacked him three times, if he hasn’t died, he is probably severely crippled and nothing more than a pile of flesh and blood. Though I must say, it benefitted the Golden Roc and the Heavenly Master.”
Lin Feng smiled once more as he flipped his palm to produce a golden alms bowl. In the alms bowl, there were a few cicada wings.
The cicada wings flew to the monkey’s side. Lin Feng kept the golden alms bowl and said, “I can’t give you the alms bowl as I still have use for it. However, I can give you the cicada wings.”
With that, he tapped lightly with his fingers and an old monk with an uneven face fell before the monkey.
Looking at the old monk, the monkey and the Yu’ao Dragon King exchanged a look. “The Amitabha Monk?”
The old monk was one of the Golden Cicada’s five Buddhist avatars, the Amitabha Monk. Earlier, Lin Feng caught him in the Nine Netherworld Peak.
When the monkey saw the cicada wings and then the Amitabha Monk, his mouth cracked open into a smile as he said, “Good, very good. With this, it will be easier to find the old bugger.”
The Amitabha Monk closed his eyes and muttered a Buddhist incantation in low voice. He appeared to have sighed as he shook his head and said nothing.
The Yu’ao Dragon King looked at the Amitabha Monk and sighed too. He respected the Golden Cicada and he had to thank him for his Buddhist teachings. However, his relationship with the monkey was good too. It was indeed hard for him to clarify this situation.
With the monkey’s personality, he would not be contented if he did not whack the monk a few times first.
Just like today, the Golden Cicada was already severely injured. If the monkey had hit him another seven to eight more times, then he may have really lost his life.
As he kept the cicada wings and the Amitabha Monk, the monkey turned his head, scratched the back of his head and said, “Wow, my debt to you only grows.”
Lin Feng shook his head and said, “The Golden Cicada and I never got along well. Today, he paid the price for it. This is his comeuppance for attempting to kidnap and harass the members of my sect. if he had not tried to do so, then I would not have gone after him. Admittedly, I would not let him off with nothing. That is why I helped you.”
He shook his sleeves once more and the Nine Infants Grand Sage, who now possessed only eight heads, fell between the monkey and him.
The Nine Infants Grand Sage looked at the monkey and said solemnly, “Big Senior, I have troubled you.”
Lin Feng said to the monkey, “I can return Nine Infants to you. From the start to the end, all he did was to listen to the Golden Cicada’s orders as he tried to protect the Golden Cicada’s altar. He did not provoke me and hence, I won’t find trouble with him. However, as he strongly resisted against me, I cut off one of his heads as punishment.”
“If he wants revenge, I shall be here waiting.”
The monkey looked at the Nine Infants Grand Sage and said, “The Master of the Celestial Sect helped me get rid of the Golden Hoop. It’s not good for me to attack him.”
The Nine Infants Grand Sage fell silent and then asked, “How about master?”
The monkey replied, “I hit him three times just now and I don’t where is he hiding right now. Do you want to find him? I don’t think he will leave traces for others to follow. However, if I find traces of him, I will find him too and hit him until I am happy.”
The Nine Infants Grand Sage sighed once more as he lowered all eight of his heads in front of Lin Feng and said, “If you want to kill me, then you should have killed me then. Had you done that, I wouldn’t have lived till now.”
While he was a violent demon who liked to hold grudges, he himself knew that there was no hope left. The Nine Infants Grand Sage had no intention of seeking death.
He was not powerful enough and the Golden Cicada and the monkey would not help him. All he could do was to lower his head and submit.
Lin Feng nodded his head and then looked at the silent Yu’ao Dragon King and said, “Regardless whether you did it for Nine Infants or the Golden Cicada, you have provoked the disciples of my sect.”
“After the Earth Dragon King trapped my disciples, you did not take advantage of the situation like the Zu’e Grand Sage and hence, there is still a chance for redemption. Now that your senior has begged for forgiveness on your behalf, I can forgive you, but not completely.”
“You cannot leave as if nothing had happened.”
At that moment, the Thunder Dragon Avatar regained his human form and stood beside Lin Feng. Whenever he saw the two odd horns on the Thunder Dragon Avatar’s head, which only dragons possessed, the Yu’ao Dragon King’s eyelids would flutter.
Hearing that, the monkey’s heart raced in panic. However, he could not do anything but scratch his ears and think.
The Yu’ao Dragon King knew that his Big Senior was more arrogant than dragons. However, he would be an ingrate as well and right now, he was definitely in a dilemma.
He did not want to see the monkey in such a dilemma and hence, the Yu’ao Dragon King sighed and lowered his head and said, “My real name is Lie’ao.”
For Vipralopa stage demons like the Earth Dragon King, it was still okay if others knew his true name. However, for the Yu’ao Dragon King, it was indeed risky for him should others know his true name.
Hence, if he dared to go against the Celestial Sect of Wonders in the future, there would be hell to pay for him.
After he told them his true name, the Yu’ao Dragon King said, “I heard that there are two dragons in the Celestial Sect of Wonders, one of them is a Bastille Black Dragon and the other is a White Jade Dragon.”
“I am willing to give up my dragon blood as compensation for my actions this time.” He paused for a while and then said, “My blood has been infused with the Divine Original True Spirit Pattern and been baptized by starlight.”
Lin Feng waved his sleeve and Shi Tianhao appeared before him. He smiled at the Yu’ao Dragon King. Looking at Shi Tianhao’s smile, the Yu’ao Dragon King thought of Shi Tianhao’s claim to fame and his face turned black. However, he had no choice but to follow Shi Tianhao to the side.
When he thought of how Shi Tianhao’s Immortal Soul turned into a furnace and cultivated the essence of the Heaven-Carrying Ants, the Yu’ao Dragon King clearly understood that other than Jieyu and Baiguang, this handsome but violently brutal young man before him wanted a portion of his blood too.
However, he did not know that the little Tao Tie, Tun Tun, who was enveloped by Shi Tianhao’s mana, too was staring at him hungrily.
Fortunately, Lin Feng had already said that he would spare the Yu’ao Dragon King. If not, Shi Tianhao, whose eyes shone with light, would have drained all the blood from this Undying Demon Soul Third Level dragon.
Even so, he drained enough blood from the Yu’ao Dragon King to leave his face pale and his body weakened.
After it was finished, Lin Feng turned to the monkey and said with a smile, “Goodbye, for now. Let’s hope we’ll meet in the future.” He did not mention a single word about helping the monkey get rid of the Golden Hoop.
The Yu’ao Dragon King’s punishment was well-deserved. Both Lin Feng and the monkey knew that the debt of gratitude the monkey owed Lin Feng shall be repaid in the future.
A trump card in one’s hand was always the most powerful one. Likewise, a debt of gratitude too was extremely valuable.
The monkey used his powers to envelop the Nine Infants Grand Sage and the Yu’ao Dragon King. Then, the monkey clasped his hands together seriously in a gesture of gratitude towards Lin Feng.
Afterwards, he smiled and said, “Master of the Celestial Sect, I shall see you soon.” With that, he somersaulted away and disappeared.
Lin Feng brought Shi Tianhao and company out of the void and back into the Barren Expanses.
Lin Feng looked to the side and realized that Shi Tianhao was carrying a huge bowl and smiling very brightly. The bowl was filled with transparent liquid which was white and warm. In the bowl, it resembled a huge, beautiful piece of jade.
Compared to the huge, true form of the Yu’ao Dragon King, the amount of blood in the large bowl seemed insignificant.
However, this was no ordinary blood. Instead, it was the essence of the Yu’ao Dragon King. Even for an Undying Demon Soul Third level demon like the Yu’ao Dragon King, releasing so much blood at once was injurious.
Looking at the bowl before him, Shi Tianhao was over the moon.
As he tried to push Tun Tun, who was struggling to get at the bowl, back, Shi Tianhao turned to look at Lin Feng and asked, “Master, where are we off to next?”
Lin Feng smiled and said, “The Parasol Tree Forest.”
“A long time ago, the Phoenix Tribe and the Divine Parasol Tree Tribe invited me over. Today, since I am free and in the Barren Expanses, I think I should pay them a visit.”
Shi Tianhao plucked at his eyebrows and said, “Master, I heard that the Phoenix Tribe and the dragons are close.”
Lin Feng nodded his head and said, “It’s true. Nowadays, if the Phoenix Tribe and the Divine Parasol Tree Tribe want to enter the Ancient Desolate Galaxy, they have to borrow the dragons’ gate. However, it’s fine, like how dragons are well-known for their arrogance, the justice of the phoenix is a well-known fact too.”
“The Red Dragon King died at my hands. Hence, the dragons would always have a bone to pick with me. That’s their nature.”
“For the phoenix, they must see who is right and who is wrong first before doing anything. That’s their nature too.”
“Furthermore, while the phoenix and the dragons have good ties, they are no vassal of the dragons. Many times, they have differing opinions.”
“Regardless whether it is the Phoenix Tribe or the Divine Parasol Tree Tribe, one should have no problem interacting with them as long as one behaves rationally and is polite.”
Here, he suddenly stopped and swept Shi Tianhao with his gaze and said, “Hence, you and Tun Tun are not allowed. Stay outside the forest to wait for me.”
Shi Tianhao opened his eyes and said in a voice full of injustice, “Master, I am always reasonable when doing things.”
“Eh, all you know how to do is to eat,” laughed Lin Feng. He ignored his disciple’s complains as he looked into the distance and mumbled, “By going to the Parasol Tree Forest, I can test my hypothesis.”
“I sincerely hope I am wrong.”
