The clash between the two parties caused Chen Feng’s six senses to become blurry. However, the black hole before him remained steady and it kept on devouring the chaotic streams of power around them.
Chen Feng could no longer tell where Man Niu and the others were. Heavenly Premier Extreme Celestial, who had been staying behind Chen Feng all this time, puked out blood. The pressure had nearly ripped him apart.
The dragon from earlier had been shattered apart. And thanks to Chen Feng, the dragon was incapable of reforming its body.
Even if those streams of power were tens of times better, they would still be incapable of resisting the devouring might of the Longevity Tower.
“That was truly dangerous.” Man Niu walked forward, his hair utterly dishevelled. The other three were also in a miserable state. Though, Chi Mingzi was in a slightly better state compared to the others thanks to the protection of the Divine artifact. As for the young swordsman and beefy hammer wielder, they were already weakened to begin with. Due to that, their situation worsened.
“Let’s hurry up and get out.” Everywhere Chen Feng’s gaze went, streams of light would charge out to carve open a path.
Man Niu slashed out with his sword and the path widened.
“Kill a way out!”
Clenching his teeth, the young swordsman gripped his sword and charged forward as well.
Chen Feng had his own reasons for taking the lead here. As more and more of the chaos light streams were devoured, the Longevity Tower began undergoing a minor change.
As expected, when compared to other types of power and spiritual energy, this power of chaos is most suitable for me. For the Chaos Constitution, these chaos light streams are the closest existences to the cosmic essence. This time, the Longevity Tower will be able to recover to the Divine tier! For others, the chaos light streams were an issue. But for Chen Feng, he wanted nothing more than to stay here and devour all of the chaos light streams.
The Longevity Tower recovering to the Divine tier. I wonder what kind of situation would ensue? The old guys who’ve been hiding themselves all this time will surely step forward now. Last time, it was a half-step Gold Immortal. After this… When he thought of that, Chen Feng could not stop himself from chuckling. The feeling of danger within him was becoming increasingly strong. At that very moment, he was just a minor True Immortal. The True Immortal stage was directly beneath the Heavenly Immortal stage, which was in turn, directly beneath the Gold Immortal stage.
The Gold Immortal stage. It was on a whole different level. Even in the Immortal Plane, a Gold Immortal could already be considered as a top-tier character.
As Chen Feng was taking the lead, Man Niu and the others, who were behind him, grew increasingly puzzled. When they first appeared here, they had nearly suffered a horrible end due to the chaos light streams. And yet, the pressure exerted by the chaos light streams was gradually lessening. It was all due to the black hole before Chen Feng. It was devouring most of the chaos light streams away.
A Divine artifact!
The thought flashed through the minds of all present. Only, the Divine artifacts in their possession did not possess this ability. Thus, there could only be one explanation for this. The Divine artifact in Chen Feng’s possession was of a higher grade.
The faces of the young swordsman and beefy hammer wielder turned slightly pale. They knew then that they had misjudged Chen Feng earlier.
As they were all lost in their thoughts, a soul-shaking sound suddenly rang out from their very hearts. It was due to an indescribable aura radiating out from Chen Feng’s body. The black hole in front of Chen Feng shrank by several notches, but its devouring rate only increased.
To Chi Mingzi’s surprise, the flaming spear in his hand and the sword slung across Man Niu’s back suddenly released a wail. It contained the notion of fear.
Even if it’s a mid-grade Divine artifact, something like this could not have happened. Just what is the magic treasure hidden within Chen Feng’s body? He is from the Longevity Clan. Back then, the semi-transparent silhouette of the Longevity Tower appeared. Could it be?! When he thought of that, Chi Mingzi’s eyes lit up and a look of utter shock appeared on his face.
Chi Mingzi was from the Immortal Plane. More, he was also a War Immortal with quite the status in the Immortal Plane. Thus, he was privy to certain information. And so, the more he thought about it, the more terrified he became.
If my speculation is correct, what should I do? For a brief moment, Chi Mingzi fell into a dazed state only to quickly recollect himself. It would appear that he had made up his mind.
The semi-transparent silhouette of the Longevity Tower flashed forward and a formidable atmosphere of power spread out, sending Man Niu and the others flying. After successfully stabilizing themselves, they noticed that all of the surrounding chaos light streams had disappeared. No questions were needed to know that this was Chen Feng’s handiwork.
“Finally, I am back to the Divine tier. But with this, some fellows from the Celestial Longevity Plane will be able to sense my existence. Kid, things are only going to become even more dangerous.” There was no joy in Tower’s voice. Instead, there was a slight tone of concern.
“Tower, you used to reign over the Myriad Celestial Planes. How did you end up becoming so timid?” Chen Feng, on the other hand, smiled.
“Humph! You’ll have to first look at how different I am now compared to the past. Last time, if it weren’t for your old man, things would have ended horribly for you and me both,” Tower replied in dissatisfaction.
“Do we have to find a place and hide for a while? But if those old guys really decide to take action, where can we go hide? Unless, do we head to another immortal region?
“Still, I don’t think they’ll be willing to throw their reputation aside to deal with a junior like me.”
“The old guys won’t, but do not forget that there are many experts in the same generation as you. Last time, just your cousin is already beyond your capabilities,” Tower said.
“Yes. A half-step Gold Immortal is indeed an existence that I cannot deal with. Still, recently, my cultivation rate has been rising. Not to mention, I have obtained the Longevity Fruits. By refining all of them, I will be able to obtain millions of years’ worth of cultivation effort. Then, there are the Heavenly laws and the one million years’ worth of cultivation from a half-step Gold Immortal. It is just a matter of time before my cultivation base rises. I am only worried that trouble might come knocking before that.”
Given Chen Feng’s present level of strength, he could already be considered as a formidable character even in the Immortal Plane. Rather, he could even live a good life in the Celestial Longevity Plane. However, he was worried that the other party would choose to take action against him. Those fellows could casually send out Heavenly Immortals that were beyond his ability to handle.
Looks like I will have to advance to the Heavenly Immortal stage as fast as possible, Chen Feng pondered.
“You have already regained your Chaos Constitution now. In the future, your rate of cultivation will increase further. As long as you succeed in cultivating out the Chaos Flame, heh, with my help, killing your way back to the Celestial Longevity Plane will not be an issue,” Tower said, chuckling.
“Chaos Flame? Easier said than done. Even amongst the imperial family, the best they could do is cultivate up to the Longevity Flame. Not even Gold Immortals can do that,” Chen Feng retorted.
“Your level is still too low. Telling you more about it is useless. When your cultivation level has reached a certain level, you will learn more about it.”
“Brother Chen, what are you doing?” Man Niu’s voice pulled Chen Feng back. Man Niu and the others had returned and they stood beside Chen Feng. Even so, they were still in a state of shock. Even Man Niu and Chi Mingzi were casting somewhat peculiar looks at Chen Feng.
“It’s nothing. I was just pondering on some other matters. Now that the chaos light streams have disappeared, what do you fellows think about this world? Are we still on the same world?” Chen Feng said smilingly.
After saying that, Chen Feng noticed that they were all giving him a weird look.
“What is it?” Chen Feng assumed that they were still in a state of shock from what happened earlier.
“Look.” Man Niu pointed towards something behind Chen Feng.
Only then did Chen Feng notice a familiar aura somewhere far behind him. Light flashed from Chen Feng’s eyes and he peered ahead to see what was happening millions of li ahead.
Several cultivators were furiously charging towards them. Peering even farther ahead, Chen Feng then saw familiar terrain.
“No way.” Due to his surprise, Chen Feng gaped.
“That’s right. We are still on the same world. That teleportation array had only teleported us a short distance away,” Chi Mingzi said with a smile.
“Where did the black-clad cultivator go to, then?” Chen Feng shook his head. The black-clad cultivator had given him a highly peculiar feeling.
Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou!
Streams of light swiftly streaked across the sky. In just the blink of an eye, eight cultivators appeared before them.
“They found more people? Looks like there are many cultivators who entered this place.” Chen Feng and the others exchanged glances.
“Chen Feng, I recognize two of them. Back then, all of us were exploring this world together. But it would appear that they have better luck than me. They managed to advance to the Heavenly Immortal stage before me.” Heavenly Premier Extreme Celestial sent Chen Feng a secret vocal transmission.
Chen Feng nodded and said nothing about it. He wanted to see what the other party was planning. Although the other party had a total of eight people, Chen Feng was not feeling worried. In this world where only magic treasures at the Divine tier could display their power, Chen Feng’s team held a massive advantage.
“Hey guys, how you doing?” Man Niu was the first to speak up.
Man Niu’s actions successfully provoked their fury and one of them simply attacked. A gigantic fire dragon roared forward, its mouth clamping down on them.
Sword light flashed out and the fire dragon was cleaved into two; the attacking cultivator cried out miserably as his figure was sent flying. One of his hands had been severed in the exchange.
“A Divine artifact!”
The other cultivators had wanted to take action as well, greed evident within their eyes, but they felt fearful.
“Everyone, join forces to kill them and the Divine artifact will be ours!”
The wounded cultivator shouted only for Chi Mingzi to use the spear to stab and thrust his body up. As a result, his body was ripped apart. Seeing that, Chen Feng grasped and bloody light flashed out. Next, the ripped parts of the cultivator’s body disappeared.
In just the blink of an eye, one cultivator had been killed off. Due to that, the others no longer had the courage to take action.
“Since you already know it’s a Divine artifact, you still want to attack? If that isn’t suicide, what is?” Chi Mingzi said, smiling.
“Fellows, aren’t you going overboard here?” The one who spoke up was an old man. He appeared calm, but he held a stone lance. Its aura was on the same level as the stone plate, a Divine artifact.
“Overboard? Not at all. Even if we kill all of you, it still would not be going overboard.” Man Niu had long since lost his patience towards these leeches. Brandishing his sword, he rushed forward.
Simultaneously, Chi Mingzi and the young swordsman also attacked. They had decided to kill off the other party.
Chen Feng had wanted to join the fight as well only for a clump of flowing light to suddenly descend. The clump of light enveloped the other party before disappearing. Seeing that, Chen Feng’s team knew that the situation was no longer within their control.
Their attacks missed and there was no telling where the other party had been teleported to.
“Someone intervened. That person is very powerful. Could it be the black-clad cultivator from before?” Chi Mingzi’s face was somewhat ugly to behold.
“I don’t know if it’s the black-clad cultivator or not, but this person’s cultivation base is in no way inferior compared to the black-clad cultivator.” The Tristar acupoints within Chen Feng’s body slowly circulated. That was especially true of the Celestial Fate acupoint, which kept flashing with light. It was attempting to replay what just happened earlier.
