Chapter 983: Encircling the Small Divine Lands World
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Amidst the vast Starry Sea, powerful waves of mana rose and fell like the crashing of the waves. A chaotic battle centered around a gate to the Starry Sea was underway. Fighting ceaselessly, the space between the Starry Sea and the outer space of the Greater World blurred.
The powers of Lin Feng and the other combatants even collapsed some stars.
The Zhujian Grand Sage held his long tail in his mouth as he stood up. His shuddered with his left elbow and from the churning, black light around him, a giant bow appeared. His right claw grabbed at the bowstring and pulled back. Immediately, a black arrow made from light appeared in the bow and it was aimed straight at Shi Tianhao.
Shi Tianhao frowned as he sensed immense danger. Black light swirled around the arrow tip as if it was a whirlpool. It absorbed the spiritual energy from the surrounding stars like a black hole.
In the next instant, the Zhujian Grand Sage release his right claw and a blazing white light shone from the black hole. An arrow made up of black and white light went flying straight at Shi Tianhao.
With the cultivation of the Zhujian Grand Sage, his arrow was able to pierce through space and time. The moment it left the bow, it appeared right before its target.
Only an equally powerful cultivation who had understood the secrets of space and time would be able to see the arrow clearly.
As the black and white arrow shot out, it re-appeared just inches away from Shi Tianhao. The vast distance between the Zhujian Grand Sage and Shi Tianhao appeared non-existent.
When it re-appeared, it shot straight at Shi Tianhao like a real arrow.
Even so, the arrow was still ridiculously fast when it re-appeared.
If his opponent had been anyone else, the Zhujian Grand Sage would have killed him immediately as the opponent would not even have time to react to the arrow.
Even Shi Tianhao had to use all the power in his body to dodge the arrow. He could feel it flying narrowly past him.
Had it been anyone else, he might have resisted with brute force. However, in the face of the Zhujian Grand Sage’s Turbid Wave Demonic Arrow, his instincts told him that it was best for him to dodge it.
However, Shi Tianhao was not someone to take a blow like that lying down. The power of the Kun Peng burst forth from his body and turned into a light image of the Kun Peng. This allowed his speed to increase rapidly as he made a beeline straight for the Zhujian Grand Sage.
The Zhujian Grand Sage did not mind a close-quarter fight with Shi Tianhao. His left claw, which held onto the bow, moved sideways as it parried a strike from Shi Tianhao’s Stone Sword. The powerful force sent Shi Tianhao flying back.
His physical strength was one of the best among all demons. It was even superior to that of the Zu’e Grand Sage and the Lu Yuan Grand Sage. While the Lu Yuan Grand Sage and the Zu’e Grand Sage were in their Undying Demon Soul Third Level, he had already passed his Cardinal Tribulations First Stage.
However, since he last returned from the Barren Expanses, Shi Tianhao too balanced his time between cultivating on Mount Yujing and going on personal expeditions. His powers too improved tremendously from when he just formed his Immortal Soul. This shocked the Zhujian Grand Sage too.
“Had I been in my Undying Demon Soul Third Level, I may be helpless against him,” thought the Zhujian Grand Sage with a trace of fear in his heart. However, as he was now a Cardinal Tribulation Beginner Stage demon, his demonic powers were extraordinary as well. Even if Shi Tianhao battled against him with his Immortal Soul powers, there was still a disparity.
Furthermore, they were in the Starry Sea, a place advantageous to the Zhujian Grand Sage.
With the help of the Cang Heaven Spell Blade, the Zhujian Grand Sage was unable to react properly in time.
Shi Tianhao and the Cang Heaven Spell Blade did not slow down the tempo of their attacks. The Zhujian Grand Sage’s Turbid Wave Demonic Arrow was too toxic. Even if it may not kill, it would surely cripple one severely, rendering him unfit for battle.
While Shi Tianhao possessed the Origin Holy Light, he did not want to experience it.
With every arrow the Zhujian Grand Sage sent out, Shi Tianhao and the Cang Heaven Spell Blade both had to dodge. However, the Zhujian Grand Sage did not dare to approach the gate to the Starry Sea. No matter how strong he was or how terrifying his arrows were, defense was not his strong suit. In the face of Shi Tianhao’s ferocious blows and the wild slices by the Cang Heaven Spell Blade, the Zhujian Grand Sage did not dare take risks too.
As the two sides battled non-stop, the Six-Horned Grand Sage stared at Shi Tianhao. He wanted to join forces with the Zhujian Grand Sage to slay him immediately to avenge his grandson. However, with that short lapse in concentration, an ink-black huge hand grabbed onto him.
That was the hand of Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar. A powerful, black aura began to spread in mid-air as it enveloped the Six-Horned Grand Sage.
The Great Satanic Avatar had the emotionless, cold face of Wang Lin. However, the avatar gave off a cruel, vile aura. It was much more cruel and cold than the aura of Wang Lin’s Destructive Stage of the River Styx at its peak.
Wang Lin naturally knew about the incident when Shi Tianhao killed the Six-Horned Divine Monkey Demonic Lord. Looking at the Six-Horned Grand Sage now, how could he allow him to go after Shi Tianhao?
This caused a murderous intent to form in Wang Lin’s heart. The cold, murderous aura crystallized as the gigantic hand of the Great Satanic Avatar grabbed at the Six-Horned Grand Sage’s head.
The Six-Horned Grand Sage had no choice but to focus on Wang Lin. He smirked and revealed his true form, turning into a pure gold monkey. He roared as he made a rush for Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar.
Two palms, one black and one white, smashed against each other in mid-air. As the Six-Horned Grand Sage was slightly shorter, he almost fell flat onto the ground.
With Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar, he was in no disadvantage in a physical brawl against the Lu Yuan Grand Sage five years ago. Furthermore, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage was stronger than the Six-Horned Grand Sage.
Wang Lin was expressionless. This attack of his was derived from the Ancient Satanic Sect’s Avīci Divine Claws. Then, he combined his understanding of his sect’s teaching from The Heavenly Classic of the Way’s Virtues to form this attack, known as the Netherworld Heaven-Covering Claw. It was much more powerful than the Avīci Divine Claws he used against the Lu Yuan Grand Sage.
The Great Satanic Avatar’s terrifying, black claw grabbed onto the golden monkey’s claw as he forcefully tightened his grip.
The bones in the Six-Horned Grand Sage’s claws started to snap. The sound they made were akin to the explosion of the stars.
The bones in the hand of an Undying Demon Soul Third Level demon were about to be shattered by Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar!
Unlike the battle between Shi Tianhao and the Zhujian Grand Sage, which placed Shi Tianhao at a disadvantage because of location, Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar was cultivated from the Avīci Satanic Appearance, the bodies of many Heaven-Carrying Ants and an immense amount of Primordial Magnet Power.
In the Starry Sea, while the Great Satanic Avatar’s powers would not increase exponentially like a demon’s, it still benefitted from it. At the very least, it was not at a disadvantage.
The Six-Horned Grand Sage’s face was contorted with rage as he roared non-stop. His five horns shone non-stop. By breaking one of his horns, he lost a lot of his essence and he was no longer at his peak. If not, even if he was no match for Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar, he would not be in this sorry state.
He bellowed in anger as he stared at Wang Lin. A golden ring appeared in one of his eyes as it turned around non-stop.
As the light swirled, Wang Lin’s huge Great Satanic Avatar started to shrink in size. The space where he was located too started to distort. Everything started to swirl as if they were all caught in a whirlpool, whose center was the eye of the Six-Horned Grand Sage.
“Eh?” Wang Lin scoffed coldly. A black-and-white Demonic Door appeared above Wang Lin’s head and flew open. Behind the door, one could see a perfect world. It encompassed changes in both the past and the present. What had happened could not be changed. However, one could still control the present.
This was one of Wang Lin’s Four Appearances Boundary Spell, the Ancient and Modern World. As the door closed, infinite possibilities for the future appeared within grasp. A power that appeared capable of changing the past appeared as it sought to turn around time.
Under the pressure of the Ancient and Modern World, it was able to stop the power of the Six-Horned Grand Sage.
While the Great Satanic Avatar was a Martial Way avatar, it was still able to use Wang Lin’s many attacks. While its powers were weaker compared to an attack casted by Wang Lin himself, using it properly would still be immensely beneficial.
While the Great Satanic Avatar was powerful, and it was hard for the Six-Horned Grand Sage to pin him down. Now, with the help of the Ancient and Modern World, the golden ring in his eye was no longer able to distort space. The Great Satanic Avatar’s form slowly stabilized once more.
However, the Six-Horned Grand Sage took advantage of this opportunity to free himself from Wang Lin’s Netherworld Heaven-Covering Claw. Subsequently, he did not retreat but instead, he attacked as he lunged forward.
As he roared, another of the Six-Horned Grand Sage’s five remaining horns snapped!
Starlight shone down on his body. As the Six-Horned Grand Sage cultivated the power of other stars and combined it with his broken horn, it turned into a terrifying, golden light as it came slicing down on Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar.
The Great Satanic Avatar raised his arm expressionlessly to block, but his arm was cut clean off!
The Six-Horned Grand Sage was finally able to seize the initiative. His body twisted as he broke free from Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar and he pounced towards Shi Tianhao.
However, just as he moved, thousands of Heaven-Carrying Ants burst from the Great Satanic Avatar’s broken stump of an arm as they crawled around his stump. In the next instant, black light shone brightly around his broken stump and a brand-new arm grew from it! It looked as good as new.
The Great Satanic Avatar looked emotionlessly at the Six-Horned Grand Sage and his body flashed. Once again, he blocked his path. His right hand was curled into a fist as he smashed down on the Six-Horned Grand Sage’s head.
In that fist, one could sense the combined powers of the Heaven, Earth, Wind, Thunder, Water, Fire, Mountain and Pond. They fused together, and its power grew without limit!
As the power of the punch grew, it then destroyed itself. Its destruction released even more energy as its force increased terrifyingly.
This was the peak Martial Way attack of the Celestial Sect of Wonders, the Heavenly Hammer of the Eight Trigrams!
The Six-Horned Grand Sage could not be more depressed. While the Great Satanic Avatar before him appeared slightly weaker, he was in a worse shape. The most crucial thing was that he missed out on the advantage he had gotten when he broke another of his horn.
No matter how unwilling he was, the Six-Horned Grand Sage could only give way. If not, the punch from the Great Satanic Avatar would crack his skull open.
As he continued battling with Wang Lin, the rage in his heart grew.
He roared into the sky.
Far away, another roar sounded. Golden rays of light started to shine. However, instead of going towards the gate to the Starry Sea, they went straight for the Small Divine Lands World.
They were Six-Horned Divine Monkeys. They roared as they attacked Yue Hongyan, Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu who were standing near the Small Divine Lands World.
The Six-Horned Grand Sage wanted to distract Lin Feng and Wang Lin. At the same time, the Sirius Grand Sage, the Qiong Qi Grand Sage and the other demons roared into the sky too.
Wolves with blood-red eyes, a horde of Qiong Qi and a flock of golden rocs could be seen in the distance. In groups, they rushed towards the Small Divine Lands World.
