Chapter 1005 – Rescue
Zhao Feng didn’t just cultivate the Ten Thousand Divine Thoughts Technique and the Soul Recovery Divine Technique in the Purple Star Tower; his Dao of Illusions had also progressed. Although his soul was severely damaged and his Soul Intent hadn’t fully recovered yet, it was enough to take care of these two people.
Zhao Feng circulated some of the Soul Intent that he just recovered a moment ago and used a simplified version of the Forbidden Illusion Lost World to make them fall into a world of illusions.
“Zhao Feng, you…?” Ji Lan went forward with shock and didn’t know what to say.
Her mind was somewhat blank. Anyone could feel how weak Zhao Feng currently was, but he managed to deal with Ji Chengming with just one glance even in his current situation?
“I won’t be going to Senior Star Demon’s today,” Zhao Feng said as he quickly returned to where he was staying.
Ji Lan paused for a moment before stomping her feet. Although she was only allowed to read Sacred Lord Star Demon’s books if Zhao Feng went with her, she didn’t stay behind because she wanted to read Sacred Lord Star Demon’s private collection.
“Ji Lian, Ji Chengming, what happened to you?”
Many disciples came forward after Zhao Feng left and looked at these two people that tried to harass Zhao Feng.
“They’re stuck in an illusion, but most illusion-resolving techniques are of no use.” An Emperor tried many methods, but they were completely ineffective on them.
Ji Chengming eventually showed signs of struggling, then he fully awakened. Ji Lian was still just standing there idiotically.
Ji Chengming instantly put his Soul Intent into Ji Lian’s soul and awakened him.
“That Zhao Feng…!”
Ji Lian shook after he woke up. Although this was the second time that Ji Lian had faced Zhao Feng’s illusions, the Soul Intent Zhao Feng released this time completely stunned him.
On the other hand, Ji Chengming was full of fear. If Zhao Feng could easily deal with them even after in such a weak state, it was hard to imagine how strong Zhao Feng was in his complete state.
“The effect of the Soul Recovery Divine Technique’s peak 6th level is not bad.”
Zhao Feng felt that the injuries to his soul had recovered by about 20% while flying back.
But… did something happen for Bi Qingyue, Old Monster Xu, and company to leave all of a sudden? Zhao Feng thought.
While he was in the Purple Star Tower, Bi Qingyue told him through the Dark Heart Seal that they needed to go back. Maybe it was because she didn’t want Zhao Feng’s attention to be split, but she didn’t tell him what was happening. At that moment, Zhao Feng had reached a critical stage in his cultivation, so he didn’t ask.
At this moment, Bi Qingyue and company had exceeded the range of the Dark Heart Seal.
Zhao Feng entered a momentary seclusion after returning to his residence. The Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly flapped its little wings within the Misty Spatial World and arrived next to Zhao Feng.
“It’s ready to break through to the Sacred Lord rank?”
Zhao Feng’s heart moved slightly. The Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly was severely injured in a fight in the past, but with Zhao Feng’s care, it recovered back to its peak a long time ago. With the help of Zhao Feng’s resources, the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly had reached a limit.
The little thieving cat arrived next to Zhao Feng.
“Here’s one portion of Hundred Origin Sacred Honey. I’m going to leave the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly to you.”
Zhao Feng let the little thieving cat take charge. The Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly was a great help, and if it could break through, then it would be even more valuable.
The little thieving cat waved its paws continuously in front of Zhao Feng. Zhao Feng nodded his head; the little thieving cat was saying that it should be rewarded by Zhao Feng for taking care of the beast horde and the precious herbs.
Zhao Feng followed the little thieving cat into the Misty Spatial World and had a look around. The little thieving cat did a very good job of managing the beasts; it was able to communicate with every beast directly and could use the lowest amount of resources to unleash the most potential.
The strength of every beast had increased, so Zhao Feng agreed to the little thieving cat’s requests.
After resolving the tasks for the little thieving cat, Zhao Feng focused on recovering the injury in his soul.
Two days later, Zhao Feng’s injuries had completely recovered, and his soul was more refined and purer than before. The power of his soul had increased, and his Soul Recovery Divine Technique had reached the 7th level.
“I’ll give the Soul Splitting Technique a test after reaching the 8th level of the Soul Recovery Divine Technique.”
Zhao Feng couldn’t suppress the excitement in his heart. According to the summary of the Soul Splitting Technique, it was the same as a cloning technique.
Cloning techniques were used by Sacred Lords and, in theory, used their Sacred Body to create a clone.
The soul that was split off with the Soul Splitting Technique was also considered a clone, and they could cultivate their own souls. Therefore, Zhao Feng wanted to learn the Soul Splitting Technique even more, and he wanted to perfect it. In order to do that, he needed to read a lot about the theories regarding the soul and expand his knowledge.
On this day, Zhao Feng left his residence and headed toward Sacred Lord Star Demon’s private hall.
Zhao Feng hadn’t completely read through the books on the right bookshelf, and he still had two days of time to browse the right bookshelf.
“Little Friend Zhao, you’re finally here.” Sacred Lord Star Demon’s voice sounded when Zhao Feng was still a couple dozen yards away from his hall.
“Senior, thank you for your Purple Star Token. This junior has gained a lot.” Zhao Feng expressed his thanks by putting his hands together.
Zhao Feng had gained a lot from that four-day extreme cultivation in the Purple Star Tower. He also knew that Sacred Lord Star Demon probably knew everything that happened in the Purple Star Tower, but that wasn’t exactly a bad thing. The better his display, the more benefits he could gain from Sacred Lord Star Demon.
“Hahaha, if that’s the case, then Little Friend Zhao can enter the Purple Star Tower whenever you want,” Sacred Lord Star Demon said with a smile, and Zhao Feng was slightly dazed. Although he had displayed his strength, Sacred Lord Star Demon shouldn’t be this nice to him.
Members of the Ji Family needed contribution points to enter the Purple Star Tower, while he could enter at any moment he wanted? This might cause some unrest.
However, seeing that Sacred Lord Star Demon was so happy and might have encountered something good, Zhao Feng didn’t decline.
“I’ve also been studying the Soul Splitting Technique and have some notes on it. Would Little Friend Zhao be interested to see it?” Sacred Lord Star Demon continued.
Zhao Feng was baffled once more. He felt that Sacred Lord Star Demon was somehow different than normal – he was a little too nice. Was there a trap?
Zhao Feng obviously didn’t know that, because of the three breaths that he stayed on the 9th floor of the Purple Star Tower, the ruler of the Ji Family had changed.
“This… it would be junior’s pleasure to see senior’s notes.” Zhao Feng couldn’t resist Sacred Lord Star Demon’s temptation, but he also signaled that he couldn’t give anything to trade for it.
“I would like to see the complete Soul Splitting Technique. If Little Friend Zhao can perfect it one day, I would love to see it,” Sacred Lord Star Demon said playfully.
Sacred Lord Star Demon took out a book from his private collection and gave it to Zhao Feng. Zhao Feng then went to the right bookshelf and became immersed in the ocean of books.
Sacred Lord Star Demon was indeed worthy of being the scholar of the Ji Family’s eye-bloodline; he was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Sacred Lord Star Demon had written his perspectives regarding the Soul Splitting Technique and how to proceed after it.
According to Sacred Lord Star Demon’s analysis, the Soul Splitting Technique had a high rate of success provided one managed to cultivate the Ten Thousand Divine Thoughts Technique and the Soul Recovery Divine Technique.
To a certain degree, these notes gave Zhao Feng a rough direction on how to proceed after the Soul Splitting Technique.
Zhao Feng’s confidence in cultivating the Soul Splitting Technique increased even more after reading this book. After finishing it, he then started to read through the other books.
Zhao Feng believed that his knowledge and analysis ability would eventually surpass Sacred Lord Star Demon one day.
Time passed by in a flash, and the time Zhao Feng had to browse through the books on the right shelf ended. Zhao Feng pretended to be very regretful, but in reality, he had already memorized 70% of the books he was interested in.
Zhao Feng then directed his target to the left bookshelf, which was more populated with books.
“Grand Elder, Ji Lan is here wanting to see you,” Ji Lan’s voice sounded for the first time in the past couple days.
“Pavilion Master Bi told me to tell Zhao Feng that he should go back as soon as possible,” Ji Lan reported truthfully.
Bi Qingyue talked with Ji Lan the most among the Ji Family, so Ji Lan was obviously the one to tell Zhao Feng anything if he was occupied.
Zhao Feng’s eyebrows furrowed. He knew that Bi Qingyue and company must have had some sort of reason to leave in such a rush.
“Senior Star Demon, this junior will be leaving then,” Zhao Feng said.
Zhao Feng could tell from Ji Lan’s tone that the problem should be quite urgent.
“Ji Lan, take a few inner disciples of the Ji Family to follow Zhao Feng,” Sacred Lord Star Demon’s voice sounded.
“Understood,” Ji Lan replied.
Zhao Feng then led the disciples of the Ji Family and headed back toward the Misty Moon Island Zone. Before he left, Zhao Feng left a mark for the Misty Spatial World in the Ji Family.
There was a total of fifteen people from the Ji Family that came alongside Ji Lan. Most of them were Emperors who were extremely excited. The reward for this mission was quite big.
In front of the Ocean Smoke Pavilion in the Misty Moon Island Zone, Old Monster Xu, Supreme Emperor Dark Night, and several other members of the Ocean Smoke Pavilion were trapped in a big array controlled by Sacred Power.
Purple dots covered Old Monster Xu’s and Supreme Emperor Dark Night’s bodies. They were severely injured, and the other members were taking care of them.
“Everything will be resolved once Grand Elder returns,” Zhan Jie’er’s confident voice sounded.
“Don’t worry, Zhao Feng will come back soon,” Old Monster Xu’s weak voice sounded.
He connected to Zhao Feng through the Dark Heart Seal and knew that Zhao Feng was coming back now.
The inside of the Ocean Smoke Pavilion was completely different from before. Two tall figures stood in a dim and dark hall. One of them wore golden armor that had silver stripes over it. The other wore a black-and-red robe, and a fierce Demonic Dao aura came from them both.
“We purposely let that bitch get away. Do you think that she’s given up on you and only saved herself?” A screeching and mockery-filled laugh sounded from the black-and-red-robed figure. They let go of Bi Qingyue so she could message Zhao Feng.
“If Zhao Feng doesn’t come back within five days, then all of you shall go report to hell!” a roar sounded from the male in golden armor.
“I’m here. You’re the ones who can go report to hell now,” a cold voice resounded across the Misty Moon Island Zone.
