Chapter 830 – Little Sword Saint
In a hidden cave near the outer edges of the crater, a thunderous Emperor Intent shot into the sky and shook Heaven and Earth. At this moment, countless beings within a thousand miles felt as if their souls had been struck by lightning, and they started to tremble in front of this Emperor Intent.
Clouds of wind and lightning suddenly formed in the air above the cave, then started to form a multi-colored whirlpool that swept over Heaven and Earth. At this point in time, Heaven Earth Yuan Qi poured into the center of the multi-colored whirlpool.
Within the dark cave, Zhao Feng was covered in a majestic light. A pair of shining wings dozens of yards long extended behind his back, making him look like an emperor.
In just a couple breaths, the Wind Lightning Crystal Core of the King had faded by a bit. The Sky Water Crystal Lotus energy stored within his body was being compressed and refined.
“Middle stages of the Great Origin Core Realm.”
Zhao Feng’s Crystal Core expanded greatly while he was covered in the magnificent light. In just a dozen breaths, his cultivation broke through.
Nan Gongsheng not far away felt his soul become suppressed, and he was unable to breathe. The magnificent Intent radiating from Zhao Feng seemed to cover everything.
“This long-awaited feeling…”
Zhao Feng closed his eyes as the Emperor Intent radiating from his body started to fade. It was like a tornado: it came quickly and left just as quickly. If it was a newly-formed Emperor Intent, it wouldn’t have been so easily controllable.
Just a short while later, Zhao Feng seemed to be a normal Great Origin Core Realm, but if one inspected closely, they would realize he was covered in a dreamy and mysterious haze.
At the entrance of the dragon-shaped crater, more than twenty elites and geniuses of the Sky Suspension Palace were waiting for the scouts below.
“Hmm? Emperor Intent…?”
Surprise appeared on Xuanyuan Wen’s handsome face as he glanced toward a certain direction. A wisp of Emperor Intent had appeared from afar, and he could feel the disturbance in Heaven and Earth clearly. The other Void God Realms only felt a weird sensation that they couldn’t quite describe.
“Maybe it’s a native beast from the Divine Illusion Dimension. Either way, even if a normal Emperor personally came, they can’t do anything to us,” the female in apricot robes smiled and said. After Xuanyuan Wen Mentioned it, she and Senior Martial Brother Zhuge sensed around and felt the wisp of that aura.
“It doesn’t seem to be from a beast or a nonhuman race. I feel like that aura of Emperor Intent comes from a human.” Xuanyuan Wen shook his head.
Hearing that, the expressions of all the elites from the Sky Suspension Palace changed dramatically. If it was a human, then it was most likely an outsider that had entered the Divine Illusion Dimension.
“There are countless unique people in the world. Three-star and four-star powers aren’t the only places that peerless geniuses can come from.” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge sighed.
No one doubted what Xuanyuan Wen said. After all, he was already half a step into the domain of Emperors. However, Xuanyuan Wen and company weren’t too worried.
In a hidden corner near the center of the crater:
“Emperor Intent? Could it be Xuanyuan Wen’s?” A voice that came out of nowhere sounded in front of one of two big rocks.
“It doesn’t seem to be Xuanyuan Wen. I’ve seen him fight. That aura and his aura are completely different….” A deep voice sounded from in front of the other rock.
There was no one here, but two voices were speaking. If people saw this, they would think there were ghosts here.
The two large rocks suddenly turned into two nonhuman figures. One was a tall nonhuman male. Blue scales covered his body, and he had a pair of blue horns that seemed to be similar to the Serpent Dragon race.
If Zhao Feng or the Ninth Prince was present, they would be able to confirm that this person was the Blue Serpent King, Wei Jing.
The other figure was even weirder. This was a nonhuman male with beady green eyes, and he seemed to merge with the surroundings. It was extremely blurry, but one could faintly see a pair of muddy-yellow crystal horns on his head.
“If we team up, we have nothing to fear even against a true Emperor, but there are too many human forces from the Great Gan Lord Dynasty around the Ancient God’s Mysterious Palace. We can only use our wisdom,” Wei Jing said as he retracted his gaze from the direction of the Emperor Intent with a solemn expression.
In a flash, the two disappeared, including their auras.
In the cave at the outskirts of the crater:
“Zhao Feng, since your Emperor Intent has already recovered, who in the Divine Illusion Dimension can stop us?”
Nan Gongsheng was excited. The burst of Emperor Intent just now made him remember the glory of the Left Eyed Heavenly Emperor.
“My Emperor Intent has only recovered to the early stages. Although I’m not arrogant enough to say that no one can stop me, I’m not scared of anyone from the outside world.”
Zhao Feng had a calm expression.
The sudden increase in strength didn’t make him cocky. He didn’t dare to call himself unstoppable, but he wasn’t scared of anyone.
At this moment, the aura of the Soul Suppressing Stone in front of him had faded in color by over half, and some cracks had appeared on its surface.
Overall, Zhao Feng’s refinement of the Soul Suppressing Stone was quite fast, which was mainly due to his mastery of the Dao of the Soul as well as the help of the God Tribulation Lightning.
Zhao Feng’s purple Soul Sea in the dimension of his left eye had also expanded to about five hundred yards. The entire surface of the purple Soul Sea gave off a crystalline glitter, as if it had been refined thousands upon thousands of times.
Zhao Feng’s mental energy merged naturally into Heaven and Earth, and the laws of space and various other laws entered his senses.
“Hmm?” Zhao Feng suddenly sensed something and revealed a weird expression.
“Let’s retreat first.”
The duo soon left the hidden cave under a layer of silver and purple. They appeared in the sky on the flaming chariot a while later.
Not long after, more than a dozen sharp auras appeared in the cave.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
These ten figures all gave off a cold Intent as sword-lights flashed. The weakest of these auras had reached the half-step King level. The leader was an elder with white hair and a white beard. He wore simple white clothes, and his face was full of wrinkles as if he was about to enter his grave at any moment, but his eyes were extremely sharp. It was as if he could see through everything.
“The Emperor Intent appeared here….”
A surge of invisible Sword Intent shot out from the white-bearded elder and caused the color of the sky to change.
At this moment, countless swords near the crater started to tremble. The strength of this Sword Intent wasn’t weaker than a Void God Realm Emperor’s.
“Senior Gu Yue is indeed worthy of the title Little Sword Saint. His understanding of the Sword Dao exceeds even some Emperors.” An elite from this Sword Dao clan was full of awe, but everyone also had regret in their eyes when they looked at Senior Gu Yue.
“What strong Sword Dao Intent! What is this force? All of those elites have comprehended powerful Sword Intent.” Zhao Feng’s eyes flashed.
Apart from the white-bearded old man, they also had a cold girl in black who was also a King. Every one of these elites was stronger than Cang Yuyue.
“It’s the Sky Sword Pavilion.”
“The number one Sword Dao force in the Great Gan Lord Dynasty. They used to be a glorious four-star force, but they’ve fallen to a peak three-star force.”
A couple forces near the crater recognized the Sky Sword Pavilion. The ten geniuses from the Sky Sword Pavilion were extremely strong; they surpassed normal three-star forces.
“That Emperor Intent wasn’t normal. It seemed to awaken for an instant before it was quickly concealed.”
The white-bearded elder scanned around with sharp eyes. He noticed Nan Gongsheng and Zhao Feng in the air, but they were a Domain-level King and a Great Origin Core Realm respectively. They didn’t seem like the ones he was searching for.
The white-bearded elder ended up with disappointment. If the Sky Sword Pavilion was able to team up with an expert with Emperor Intent, they would make a very powerful combination, but unfortunately, no one knew the owner of that Emperor Intent.
“Let’s continue inward!” the white-bearded elder exclaimed, and ten powerful Sword Dao auras flew toward the depths of the crater.
“Sky Sword Pavilion!”
Some of the forces exclaimed.
“It’s him…! Little Sword Saint Senior Gu Yue!” The elder in green robes from the Duanmu Family couldn’t help but take in a cold breath.
“That old undead came into the Divine Illusion Dimension? Does he want to give it one last try?” Jiu Wuji from the Nine Darkness Palace was filled with wariness.
Some of the older elites knew about the stories of the Little Sword Saint.
In front of the dragon-shaped crater:
“So, it’s the Little Sword Saint from the Sky Sword Pavilion….”
The imperials and the Sky Suspension Palace elites looked over. Even Senior Martial Brother Zhuge from the Sky Suspension Palace revealed admiration in his eyes.
The force from the Sky Sword Pavilion soon arrived at the entrance of the dragon-shaped cave; they were the third group of elites to arrive.
A while later, the Nine Darkness Palace and some other three-star powers arrived.
Most people that were able to reach this place were part of a big group, but there were some rare individuals or pairs.
At a certain moment, a flaming chariot arrived at the entrance of the scorched dragon-shaped crater with surprising speed.
“Purple-Haired Demonic Duo!”
“Those two thieves~~~~!”
Many elites from the Great Gan Lord Dynasty gritted their teeth with hatred. However, the duo acted as if that hatred had nothing to do with them. Instead of retreating or becoming scared, a weird smile formed on their faces as they faced all these elite groups.
The Purple-Haired Demonic Duo had taken advantage of many geniuses and experts present, so even though they had way more people, they didn’t dare to attack.
“If we calculate it, we’ve been in the Divine Illusion Dimension for more than a month, which is already over a third of the total time.”
Zhao Feng crossed his arms, and his eyes twinkled as he glanced around. His gaze landed on Xuanyuan Wen’s face for a short while, and surprise flashed through his eyes before he quickly shifted his gaze away.
No one knew that this handsome Great Origin Core Realm youth was the owner of the new Emperor Intent. At this point in time, Zhao Feng’s aura was concealed very well, and he didn’t want to reveal his Emperor Intent so easily.
Although Zhao Feng wasn’t scared of anyone present, in order to obtain the maximum amount of benefits from the Ancient God’s Mysterious Palace, he definitely shouldn’t stun everyone with his true power and stand at the top of the crowd.
