Chapter 980: Another Encirclement!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
When Lin Feng saw the Qiong Qi Grand Sage, Lin Feng knew that it was very likely that a gate to the Starry Sea was in the hands of the Golden Roc Grand Sage.
Following the same principle, the Sirius Grand Sage, the Qiong Qi Grand Sage and the Six-Horned Grand Sage too knew that Lin Feng possessed one gate to the Starry Sea.
Under these circumstances, the many demons may ally together to make Lin Feng’s life hard.
Since the Antiquity Age, the humans never possessed such a stable entry into the Ancient Desolate Galaxy.
After the Antiquity Age, the Starry Sea became the exclusive playground of the demons. Hence, when a human once again gained control over the gate to the Starry Sea, this might force the demons to ally together.
Furthermore, the gate to the Starry Sea in Lin Feng’s hands was a huge incentive. Hence, with these two factors, the demons would naturally come together.
Obtaining Lin Feng’s gate to the Starry Sea would greatly help them open the Star Tomb.
Five years ago, when Lin Feng went to the Barren Expanses. The demons became more aware of Lin Feng’s prowess, which increased their sense of fear and respect. At the same time, they understood more about Lin Feng, which allowed them to better strategize against him.
Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar too gently touched the gate into the Starry Sea and a ray of light flew out and landed on top of it.
The ray of light connected with the Thunder Dragon Avatar and disappeared very quickly. A film of light appeared over the entrance to the gate to the Starry Sea once more, sealing it.
This door then vanished into the void without a trace.
The door was still open, but others could not sense it. The ray of light connecting the Thunder Dragon Avatar to it helped him quickly return to the gate if the need arose.
The Ancient Desolate Galaxy was as vast as the universe and it was an extremely large Outer Realm. Furthermore, because of the movement of the stars, the space within it could change as well. There was not a single moment where it was stable. While it was not as chaotic as the Void Battleground or as seductive as the Ying Sea, one still had to be careful while inside.
One misstep and one could get lost forever here.
The entrances into the Starry Sea hovered like solitary canoes in the ocean. Their positions shifted about non-stop.
When this had been arranged, Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar and Avatar of Ares started to move towards the patch where the concentration of stars was the highest.
After Lin Feng left, the space there suddenly started to tremble violently. From three separate directions, three rays of light appeared. They kept a considerable distance away from each other.
They were the Sirius Grand Sage, the Qiong Qi Grand Sage and the Six-Horned Grand Sage.
The Sirius Grand Sage’s blood-red eyes swept through the void as he scoffed. Then, his gaze fell upon the path with the highest star density as he said, “He went there.”
The Qiong Qi Grand Sage and the Six-Horned Grand Sage both had terrible expressions on their faces. That was their original target.
Especially the Qiong Qi Grand Sage, whose emotions were even more complex. Initially, he thought that he had found a good spot. Who knew that just as he was about to enter, the Sirius Grand Sage and the Six-Horned Grand Sage appeared.
When they saw him, the Sirius Grand Sage and the Six-Horned Grand Sage guessed that a gate to the Starry Sea must be in the hands of the Golden Roc Grand Sage.
The Sirius Grand Sage chuckled, “I have to admit that I have underestimated the Golden Roc Grand Sage. Without saying anything, he obtained a gate into the Starry Sea.”
The Qiong Qi Grand Sage too smiled coldly, “Sha Yu, do you think you are the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage? From the start to the end, in the eyes of my emperor, you are nothing more than a brash clown.”
“Hehe, E Chi, have you really been spoiled by the Golden Roc Grand Sage?” The Sirius Grand Sage laughed in an unfriendly manner. “If Lei Yuan (the Golden Roc Grand Sage) is not here, he won’t listen to your adulations no matter how sweet they sound. Stop making me sick?”
“Everyone knows that the Qiong Qi Tribe is apt at betrayal. Do you think Lei Yuan really trusts you? In his eyes, he only trust bird-type demons.”
When the Qiong Qi Grand Sage heard that, he said nonchalantly, “My emperor has the ability to make me submit. He also has benefits that I want. Hence, what’s wrong with submitting to him now? Do you think I should submit to you instead, a lackey of the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage?”
The Sirius Grand Sage smiled cruelly and revealed an entire maw of pure-white teeth. It was a terrifying scene. “Hmph, E Chi, do you think you are someone important? Come, come, come. Both you and I are in the Undying Demon Soul Third Level. Without your Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation, I will beat you senseless!”
“Even with the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation, do you think you are a match for me?”
“The two of you appeared to have interacted with the leader of the Celestial Sect in the Cloud Foerst World.” The Six-Horned Grand Sage, who had been silent all these while, suddenly said. Hearing these words, the Sirius Grand Sage and the Qiong Qi Grand Sage both fell silent. Then, they turned their ferocious gazes onto the Six-Horned Grand Sage.
The Six-Horned Grand Sage reminded them of their previous failures.
The Six-Horned Grand Sage ignored the gazes of the Sirius Grand Sage and the Qiong Qi Grand Sage. His expression was calm. However, when the two other demons saw this expression of his, they frowned.
He was evidently the weakest amongst the three of them. However, he appeared to be the calmest. His gaze looked straight into the patch of stars.
The Sirius Grand Sage frowned and said, “The one in the Cloud Forest World is not his real self.”
In the Cloud Forest World, while Lin Feng emerged victorious, he did not reveal such terrifying powers.
Right now, he was so terrifying that both the arrogant and battle-hungry Sirius Grand Sage and the Qiong Qi Grand Sage had to avoid him.
In plain words, they could only run when they saw him.
The Barren Expanses obtained the same judgement as the Divine Lands with regards to Lin Feng. Both the Sirius Grand Sage and the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage discussed the matter to no end as they eventually concluded that Lin Feng had sent an avatar in the Cloud Forest World.
The Qiong Qi Grand Sage stared at the Six-Horned Grand Sage and asked, “Yun Guang, what do you want?” Yun Guang was the name of the Six-Horned Grand Sage.
The Six-Horned Grand Sage said calmly, “A disciple of the Celestial Sect of Wonders, Shi Tianhao, killed my grandson. I must have my revenge.”
The Sirius Grand Sage and the Qiong Qi Grand Sage could feel the determination of the Six-Horned Grand Sage. While the Six-Horned Grand Sage was the leader of the Six-Horned Divine Monkeys, he was responsible for the developments of his tribe and hence, he had to tread carefully. However, he could not let some grudge go.
However, he knew because of the difference in powers between him and his opponent, he may never able to settle some grudges.
The Qiong Qi Grand Sage and the Sirius Grand Sage did not find this too surprising.
Five years ago, when Lin Feng came to the Barren Expanses, the Six-Horned Grand Sage was not there. When he returned to the Lingyuan Mountains, Lin Feng had already brought Shi Tianhao back to the Divine Lands.
The Qiong Qi Grand Sage shook his head and said, “Just now, we just saw two of his avatars. We do not even know if Shi Tianhao had entered the Starry Sea…”
“He’s here!” The Six-Horned Grand Sage said, “I felt him. He was with one of his avatar!”
When the Qiong Qi Grand Sage heard that, he said nothing. He knew that the Unique Gift of the Six-Horned Divine Monkey Tribe was its extrasensory abilities. They were very sensitive to enemies above their mastery level.
He looked at the head of the Six-Horned Grand Sage and realized that one of his horns was broken.
Lin Feng’s avatar brought Shi Tianhao into the Ancient Desolate Galaxy. As the Six-Horned Grand Sage was very particular about this issue, he expended much of his powers in exchange for some clues.
The Sirius Grand Sage shook his huge wolf head and said, “Then you can go after the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. However, I will not accompany you. Those are his two avatars. Even if we kill both, there’s not much use.”
The Qiong Qi Grand Sage said, “If we kill his avatars, then he himself will come. We cannot resist him. Only His Imperial Majesty, the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and the Heavenly Grandmaster Grand Sage could resist him.”
“He will not come,” said the Six-Horned Grand Sage. “With our combined powers, we will summon the powers of three gates into the Starry Sea here and cast a spell formation. In a short time, we can seal his door into the Starry Sea.”
“This Outer Realm is mystical and hard-to-understand. If we seal his gate, then he himself would not be able to come even if he sacrificed his avatar or a Physical Spell Body.”
“Then, all I want is Shi Tianhao. The rest is for you,” said the Six-Horned Grand Sage as his eyes flashed. “Both his avatars are good stuff, and there’s also that patch of stars there.”
“If everything goes according to plan, we may even obtain his gate to the Starry Sea.”
The Sirius Grand Sage and the Qiong Qi Grand Sage exchanged a look. While they had been enemies just moment before, this huge benefit before them would allow them to set aside their differences and defeat their common enemy.
When the Six-Horned Grand Sage noticed this, he secretly communicated to the Heavenly Grandmaster Grand Sage. after all, to use the power of the gate to the Starry Sea of the apes, he needed his permission. The Six-Horned Grand Sage even prompted the Heavenly Grandmaster Grand Sage to make a personal trip down, for the prize of Lin Feng’s gate to the Starry Sea and the Thunder Dragon Avatar.
To the Six-Horned Grand Sage, all he wanted was to kill Shi Tianhao. He did not care about what the Heavenly Grandmaster Grand Sage wanted to do.
The Sirius Grand Sage and the Qiong Qi Grand Sage naturally did not trust the Six-Horns Grand Sage. They notified their people too.
Other than gaining access to the powers of the gate to the Starry Sea, they did not believe that they were able to kill Lin Feng.
At the same time, all the demons thought of the Star Tomb. Their alliance this time factored this into consideration too. However, they were unclear about how they should split the loot in the Star Tomb as their primary concern now was to stop Lin Feng.
….Could there be other gates to the Starry Sea?
Opportunities appeared abound for them.
“We should move quickly. His gate to the Starry Sea is almost gone. All we can do is to seal off a certain area,” said the Six-Horned Grand Sage. “As time passes, the location radius of the gate to the Starry Sea will increase. Then, it will be harder to seal.”
At that time, Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar and Avatar of Ares were traversing through the stars.
While the density of stars there was greater compared to other areas, the distance between stars was still rather wide. As Lin Feng continued to advance, he used his supernatural awareness to sweep the area.
The Ten Crucibles Spell Formation was vital in pointing out the way for him.
As he advanced, Lin Feng suddenly felt a tug in his heart. He stopped. There was patch of black void before him.
In the Starry Sea, there were stars everywhere, including where Lin Feng was presently located. However, before him, all he could see was pitch-black darkness without a single star.
