Chapter 687 – Devour

This wasn’t the first time Wang Lin had seen a soul extraction spell. Back in the Demon Spirit Land he saw Greed took out a celestial mountain and extract the mountain’s soul.

The scene from then shocked him greatly. This kind of spell was very powerful and was not something ordinary cultivators could control and master.

Now that he was able to personally experience the scatter devil controlling his body and pulling out the planet’s soul. The spell was millions of times more profound than Greed’s spell.

Everything in the world even a blade of grass has life and that means it has a soul. This kind of soul was very illusive. It was impossible to see but can be clearly felt.

It was if a mortal looked up at a tall peak and would feel a sense of shock and pressure. The pressure came from the mountain’s soul. However the mortal can only see the mountain but could sense the pressure of its soul.

Even mountain and river have a soul much less a cultivation planet filled with spiritual energy.

It was very different from the spiritual energy was taken away. This time the planet didn’t tremble the slightest but a very ancient aura appeared as if the planet had awaken and slowly spread.

This ancient aura wasn’t something that could form in merely hundreds of thousands of years. It was something that slowly formed over countless years without any joy or sadness.

This aura only contained a sense of inclusion, over the countless years it included everything on the planet.

The ancient devil controlled Wang Lin’s body and reached out with his right hand. This aura began to gathered in his palm like crazy. In the blink of an eye it turned into a gray mist. The ancient aura continued to fuse into the gray mist and compress. Explosions that sounded like bolts of thunder came from the gray mist.

Perhaps it was an illusion, at this moment Wang Lin felt that planet Thousand Illusion suddenly lost its vitality. The grass instantly withered, the rivers disappeared, and the peaks cracked…

As the scattered devil laughed it charged directly toward the celestial figure with the gray mist in hand. The scattered devil moved like lightning and closed in on the celestial figure with the soul of planet Thousand Illusion.

At this moment Wang Lin had a feeling that his body had fused with the soul of planet Thousand Illusion. This attack was not with his own power but with the power of the entire planet.

The celestial figure also took a step forward with all the celestial energy transformed from all the spiritual energy on planet Thousand Illusion. It waved its hand and charged directly at the scattered devil.

Two unimaginable spell became closer and closer until they finally collided.

Boom! Boom! Boom!

A thunderous roar echoed across the planet. At this moment about about thirty to forty percent of planet Thousand Illusion’s spirit vein collapsed. This produced powerful shockwave that spread in all directions.

The powerful impact caused all the Huan family member to immediately retreat. They began active the spiritual or celestial energy inside the body. They felt if they didn’t do this then the impact would cause their bodies to collapse.

At this moment the celestial figure suddenly collapsed into smoke and began to dissipate. At the moment it completely dissipated a piece of jade appeared.

The moment the jade appeared there were a series of crackling sound coming from it. The jade shattered and turned to dust with all the Huan family members watching.

However at the moment it shattered a ray of white light came out from the jade. The white light formed a light screen within 5 kilometer of the surrounding area.

The Huan family ancestor’s face was pale. The family had passed down this message, should the jade shatter there will be on more defensive spell left. However this spell was very weak. Its only value was to buy the Huan family some time in the time of crisis to escape, surrounder, suicide, or leave their final words.

The scattered devil’s right hand trembled and planet Thousand Illusion’s soul disappeared.

The ancient aura merged back with the earth and gradually disappeared.

The biggest benefactor in this battle was Wang Lin. The battle using these kind of spells was something far above his cultivation to experience. It was completely above him.

Whether it was the celestial figure or the scatter devil both had the power of a second step cultivator. For Wang Lin it was as if this battle had opened a tightly sealed door for him.

At this moment a small gap appeared in the door allowing him to see the next level. Allowed him to personally feel the power of the next step.

“This… is the power of the second step… Compared to Greed, Huan family ancestor, Qian Kuizi, who are all also at the second step, it is clearly that they had just entered the second step.

The second step of cultivation is too terrifying!” Wang Lin’s mind was shaken.

During this battle the scattered brought him unimaginable benefits by controlling his body. The scattered devil only used one spell but this one spell was activated through Wang Lin’s body. Everything that was hidden on the outside was clear to Wang Lin. This included the way the celestial energy moved in his body and the commanding aura when extracting the soul.

All of this opened a big gap for Wang Lin’s path to the second step.

Never had Wang Lin wanted to reach the second step as he does now!

“Compared to this kind of spell even my celestial guard can’t even withstand one hit. The second step of cultivation is very strong! Each battle can easily collapse a cultivation planet. This is very close to the scene I saw when I received the ancient god’s inheritance.”

Not only him but even the Huan family members all seemed enlightened after the battle. It was as if a new world was opened to them. However compared to Wang Lin their gains were really insignificant.

This kind of opportunity was simply too scarce. In this world how many second step cultivator as strong as Ling Tianhous would descend upon someone and have a fight with someone also in the second step.

If they really needed to battle they would just personally come, they would rarely battle through someone else.

The scattered devil controlled Wang Lin to look down at the celestial energy light screen and let out a light snort. His right hand formed a fist and threw a punch. Just a casual punch caused a sonic boom. This punch carried with it a thick devilish energy as it fell on the light screen.

Rumble rumble rumble!

Cracks appeared on the light screen but didn’t collapse.

Under the light screen the Huan family ancestor’s face was deadly pale.

Huan Fenshen said in serious tone “Ancestor hand over Liu Mei…” He let out a sigh, although the other was only an ascendant cultivator but his magical treasures and spell was simply too strong especially after the devil appeared. Even if the ancestor’s cultivation didn’t fell the ancestor still won’t be a match.

The Huan family ancestor looked at the not far away Huan Fengshen and withdrew his gaze. He then gloomily looked at Liu Mei.

The Huan family ancestor hesitated for a bit and slowly said “Liu Mei…”

However before he finished speaking Liu Mei looked up and stared at him with her beautiful eyes. She moved the hair that had scattered behind her head and softly said “Master if Liu Mei leaves then I’ll without a doubt die”


The celestial energy light screen withstood another one of the scatter devil’s attack and even more cracks appeared. The light screen was about to collapse and the scatter devil’s arrogant laughter came from outside.

The Huan family ancestor’s expression was gloomy, he was just unwilling to surrender Liu Mei like this. However if he doesn’t hand her over now once that scattered devil descend it would be impossible for him to resist with his own power. The Qian family won’t help him and the Xu family promised to help but still hadn’t appeared so clearly something was wrong. Right now he can only depend on himself.

His eyes became cold as he stared at Liu Mei and said “Liu Mei since you will die if you go out why don’t you give up your domain to his old man. With your domain to help complete my Identityless Heavenly Devil Dao then I might a chance!”

He took Liu Mei as his disciple because she showed a trace of the Ten Thousand Illusion Heavenly Devil Dao!

The Huan family celestial ancestor once left two domain spells. They were respectfully the Heavenly Devil Dao and the Identityless Dao. However the Heaven Devil Dao was simply too difficult and up to this day no one in the Huan family had successfully learned it.

There two spells were in fact split from one domain. That domain was the Identityless Heavenly Devil Dao. This Identityless Heavenly Devil Dao was formed before the celestial realms collapsed. The Huan family ancestor got entangled with a heavenly devil and after combining with it he gained comprehension in this domain. However celestial don’t cultivate domain so he kept this comprehension and gift it to his descendants.

After the Huan family lost their protection after the celestial realm collapsed they were able to firmly keep their place because of the Identityless Heavenly Devil Dao. However their glory was no more.

It was because of Liu Mei’s Ten Thousand Heavenly Devil domain that Huan Wuqing was tempted. To make it easier to devour her later he lowered his own cultivation to change her bloodline.

He also sped up her cultivation, although this won’t stop her from increasing her cultivation but make it so she can only reach the Yin and Yang stage. As a result she would be in his complete control and won’t cause any problem when devouring her in the future.

He had calculated it all and just needed to wait for Liu Mei to reach the Yin and Yang stage. Then after her domain undergo its transformation into the real Ten Thousand Illusion Heavenly Devil Dao he could devour it and cultivate the true domain of the Huan family, Identityless Heavenly Devil Dao.

However all of this was completely destroyed by Wang Lin who suddenly appeared. Instead of handing over Liu Mei he might as well devour her now and still get a trace of the Ten Thousand Illusion Heavenly Devil Dao. In the future he will just have to be diligent in comprehending dao and maybe he will achieve a grand dao one day.

With this idea in mind Huan Wuqing stared at Liu Mei and his eyes revealed a strange gaze.

Liu Mei’s eyes were calm, with her intelligence she had already seen some clues back in the Alliance Star System. She knew that aside from loved one there was no kindness. Even if there was there was definitely some purpose behind it all.

However Huan Wuqing’s power was not something she could resist. She could only pretend to not know and be brought to the Allheaven Star System and accept the bloodline ritual.

From the moment Huan Wuqing was willing to damage his cultivation to help her achieve peak late stage ascendant she was confident that this Huan Wuqing had some deep motive behind all of this.

However she was powerless to resist.

With her previous status as the disciple of the Suzaku how could she now know the damage of increasing one’s cultivation so forcibly!

Liu Mei softly said “You have to promise me two things…”
