The moment Chen Feng’s pursuers from the Celestial Longevity Plane entered the City of Dead Souls, Chen Feng sensed something amiss.
This feeling. It seems someone is targeting me. Chen Feng had only just emerged from the warship. Landing on a 1,000-metre-tall building, he suddenly felt his heart palpitating. Due to that, he performed a divination.
A drop of blood essence belonging to a mid-level Heavenly Immortal exploded before Chen Feng, who utilized the Longevity Scripture’s secret technique. Borrowing the Heavenly grand dao power for this, he was able to quickly divine out some of the intricacies involved here.
As expected, it’s my pursuers. Back then, running away was all I could do. But now, I wonder what will happen? A ridiculing smile appeared on Chen Feng’s face.
The Divine Sun Needle flew out to prick Chen Feng’s palm. Next, a drop of blood flew out. With a bang, it blew up before transforming into another Chen Feng. A being of flesh and blood, this lifelike Chen Feng held a Longevity Sword in his hand while employing the Longevity Steps to rapidly disappear from sight.
A second drop of blood transformed into another Chen Feng.
The third drop…
The fourth drop…
The Six Unity acupoints within Chen Feng, the Essence, Energy, Soul, Blood, Surge and Force acupoints stirred as a total of six drops of blood flew out to transform into clones.
The clones were not just formed from blood essence. They also contained Chen Feng’s essence, energy, soul power and the power of Heavenly laws. After he was done forming the six clones, Chen Feng grew somewhat pale. He had exhausted 30% of his strength in that short time. In order to deal with the incoming danger, he had invested a lot into this.
A Longevity Fruit entered his stomach and the formidable power of the fruit burst out, allowing Chen Feng to recover his strength. At the same time, his figure became hidden.
Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou!
A total of six cultivators broke through space to arrive at the very spot that Chen Feng had been occupying.
“Strange, the aura has disappeared.”
“It did not disappear. It transformed into six different parts. Looks like the Little Master has discovered our existence.”
“So what if he managed to discover us? It’s just a cloning technique. You five, split up and chase him!”
After the five other cultivators had left, the leader of the team brought out a battle lance, which he stabbed into the ground. In the beginning, nothing happened. Next, the ground – with the battle lance as its epicentre – began quaking. Layer after layer of soil were pushed away. The might of a high-level Heavenly Immortal was truly formidable. This move from him utterly ravaged the lands within a radius of 50 kilometres and all the dead souls there were wiped out.
After waiting for a moment, a look of disappointment appeared on his face. Then, he vaulted up into the sky, where he swiftly disappeared from sight.
After one joss stick’s worth of time had passed, a dead soul that were killed by the cultivator’s move earlier suddenly convulsed. In the end, it blew up into a clump of smoke. When the smoke disappeared, Chen Feng could be seen there.
To think that it would be a high-level Heavenly Immortal. Not to mention, he is also a highly talented one. He exudes a thick killing intent that is well developed. He must be one of the Limitless Corps’ experts. I was nearly unable to hold on earlier. Chen Feng revealed a wry smile.
For Chen Feng, a high-level Heavenly Immortal was too much of a challenge for him. That was especially so when considering the fact that this was an expert from the Celestial Longevity Plane.
I’ll deal with the lesser soldiers first before dealing with this one.
Back then, Chen Feng had been forced to run from their pursuit. At that very moment, however, Chen Feng planned on turning the tables on them and hunt them down instead.
Chen Feng’s figure disappeared once more. Not long after that, the high-level Heavenly Immortal appeared once more. His eyes were like torches and his gaze swept about relentlessly.
“He really did trick me.” A minor look of surprise appeared on the high-level Heavenly Immortal’s face, but he was quick to recollect himself. After a brief divination, he then went after Chen Feng.
“Young Master Longevity Celestial! You should just return with us! Ever since you disappeared, the entire Longevity Clan have been feeling worried. Now that we have found Young Master, I believe that the entire Celestial Longevity Plane will be overjoyed.”
By then, one of the cultivators had managed to catch up to one of the clones. As the cultivator prepared himself, he spoke up to persuade Chen Feng.
Longevity Celestial. An entangled expression flashed across Chen Feng’s face.
Even before Chen Feng’s birth, it had been determined that he would possess the peerless spiritual body, the Chaos Constitution. Thus, when he was born, the Planar Lord of the Celestial Longevity Plane – someone who would rarely appear – appeared to grant him the name Longevity Celestial. The Celestial Longevity Plane’s Longevity Celestial! In the Celestial Longevity Plane, his name was the most exalted one. Later, however, the war happened and both Chen Feng and the Longevity Tower ended up drifting through space. His memories became sealed and he was taken in by someone in Eternal World who gave him the name Chen Feng .
“Certainly, there are some in the Celestial Longevity Plane who are overjoyed, but that does not include you fellows, no?” Chen Feng’s clone said, the Longevity Sword in his hand thrumming to send out a sword beam, which swiftly shot towards the cultivator.
This cultivator was a mid-level Heavenly Immortal. Born in the Celestial Longevity Plane’s Limitless Corps, he was one of the best amongst the experts. In the face of Chen Feng’s attacks, he simply revealed a faint smile as he flicked a finger to send out a sword beam.
“It is said that Young Master Longevity Celestial possesses the Chaos Constitution, a talent with no equal. I would like to ask for pointers.” The young cultivator revealed a playful smile.
Their main objective here was the Longevity Tower. However, capturing Chen Feng was also a great achievement.
After exchanging several blows, a sword beam cleaved Chen Feng’s clone into two.
“Something is not right!”
It was then that the young cultivator sensed something amiss.
“Of course something is not right. Did you not realize that it is just a clone?” Chen Feng’s voice suddenly rang out. Next, a massive fist slammed into the young cultivator to send him flying.
“Is this all you have? Looks like the standards of the Limitless Corps have fallen.” Chen Feng scoffed.
The young cultivator cried out in shock.
“Why aren’t you addressing me as Young Master Longevity Celestial anymore?”
“That way, I can kill you!” Gnashing his teeth, the young cultivator charged forward. The wounds on him had completely healed up. This was the strongest attribute of cultivators from the Celestial Longevity Plane. As they cultivated the longevity-type primary energy, they could heal from almost any type of injuries at the fastest time possible.
“Kill me and snatch away the Longevity Tower, isn’t that right?” Chen Feng raised his hand and the Longevity Tower appeared there.
“That’s right!” Seeing the Longevity Tower, the young cultivator’s eyes turned bloodshot.
“Not a bad plan. However, you failed to gauge the difference in our strength,” Chen Feng said, the Longevity Tower in his hand flying out to easily suppress the young cultivator.
Sensing the coercive atmosphere of might coming from the Longevity Tower, the young cultivator’s face sank sharply. Only then did he recall that snatching the Longevity Tower was something which required the combined efforts of everyone from the team. His strength alone was not enough for this.
The young cultivator bellowed, his roar akin to that of a dragon. The battle lance in his hand then stabbed furiously towards the Longevity Tower. Now that the Longevity Tower had locked down on him, fleeing was an impossibility.
The battle lance struck the Longevity Tower, but all it could do was elicit a ringing sound. Next, a wave of power – fused with an aura – made its way towards the young cultivator’s body.
In the face of the Longevity Tower’s suppressive aura, his strength immediately fell by 30%. The battle lance in his hand fell down and flew into Chen Feng’s hand.
Following that, an overwhelmingly unstoppable power enveloped his whole body.
The young cultivator only managed to let out a wretched scream before the Longevity Tower sucked him in. For the cultivators from the Longevity Clan, getting sucked into the Longevity Tower meant that they would be incapable of fighting back, let alone escape.
Having dealt with one of his pursuers, Chen Feng waved his hand to bring out a teleportation platform. When he stepped on it, spatial power fluctuated and he promptly disappeared.
By the time the high-level Heavenly Immortal arrived, the teleportation platform had utterly broken down and the chaotic streams of energy there provided cover for Chen Feng’s aura.
“Well played! If you are allowed to return to the Celestial Longevity Plane, what would happen then?” Intense killing intent grew within his eyes.
The second pursuer fell to Chen Feng.
When Chen Feng killed the third pursuer, the high-level Heavenly Immortal finally caught up to him. The battle lance in the high-level Heavenly Immortal’s hand stabbed forward and ripples spread out through space. With that, Chen Feng could no longer flee.
Next, the battle lance swirled in a circle around Chen Feng while keeping a distance from him. Immediately, Chen Feng sensed a restraining power entangling him.
“The grand dao of space!” With a thought from Chen Feng, the Longevity Wings unfurled and his figure disappeared. The opponent’s attack missed and the Longevity Tower descended upon the high-level Heavenly Immortal.
In the face of the Longevity Tower’s suppressive move, the cultivator raised his hand to fire out a golden beam of light. The beam then transformed into a talisman, which pasted itself onto the Longevity Tower. Following that, the Longevity Tower’s downward momentum suddenly disappeared as it halted. Even its strength was beginning to disappear. To Chen Feng’s shock, the connection between him and the Longevity Tower was gradually breaking down.
“An Ageless law. This is a talisman that a Gold Immortal crafted. It is not Aquafiend’s handiwork. Limitless will not take action. Looks like it’s someone else.” Although this turn of events shocked Chen Feng, he did not panic. The Longevity Wings flapped and the Blood Mustering Bead transformed into a blood-coloured sword, which slashed down on the high-level Heavenly Immortal.
“You’re just a minor True Immortal. Without the protection of the Longevity Tower, you’re nothing more than a little lizard!” The high-level Heavenly Immortal sneered and the battle lance in his hand swung forward. Power burst out and Chen Feng was sent flying. The blood-coloured sword in his hand transformed back into the Blood Mustering Bead. At the same time, streams of yin yang energy appeared on the Longevity Wings, making Chen Feng’s figure even more elusive.
“The Longevity Scripture!”
Despite his shock at seeing a True Immortal block his attack, the high-level Heavenly Immortal grew even more excited. He believed that Chen Feng, who obtained the Longevity Tower, must have also obtained the Longevity Scripture.
He was a high-level Heavenly Immortal, someone with quite the status in the Celestial Longevity Plane. However, he had only cultivated a small handful of the secret techniques of the Longevity Scripture. By capturing Chen Feng, he would be able to obtain the Longevity Scripture. Then, his cultivation base would rise by leaps and bounds.
I wonder when the Longevity Tower will be able to break free? The Blood Mustering Bead in Chen Feng’s hand kept spinning and wave after wave of bloody light flowed out. Meanwhile, a river of stars swirled around him. With a shout from Chen Feng, the river of stars then formed a massive starry palm silhouette. Like a stretch of the universe itself, it then smashed down on the high-level Heavenly Immortal.
“The Great Longevity Palm!” A hint of joy appeared on the high-level Heavenly Immortal’s face and the battle lance in his hand stabbed forward to blow up the massive, starry palm silhouette. However, the Blood Mustering Bead in Chen Feng’s hand rapidly grew in size, becoming like a planet before smashing forward.
As Chen Feng was fighting against the Heavenly Immortal, Tower, who was inside the Longevity Tower, snickered as he observed the battle. Unlike what Chen Feng had assumed, Tower was not even trying to unravel the talisman on the Longevity Tower.
“Let’s see what kind of combat power this kid can display without the help of the Longevity Tower.”
After exchanging a few blows, Chen Feng grew somewhat more familiar with his own strength. He could also see that his opponent was not going all out. Perhaps it was because he wanted to capture Chen Feng alive, or perhaps he had a different motive.
1 The name ‘Longevity Celestial’ is translated from ‘长天’, pinyin: ‘cháng tiān’. The two characters are part of the four characters that make up the name ‘Celestial Longevity Plane’, ‘长生天界’, pinyin: ‘cháng shēng tiān jiè’. Normally, the character ‘长’, pinyin: ‘cháng’ just means ‘long’. But in this case, it is probably short for ‘长生’ (longevity). On a side note, I really wanted to just translate it as ‘Eversky’ instead of ‘Longevity Celestial’. =/↩
