Chapter 1370 Hidden Danger

 

The abundance of energy almost caused Chen Feng to become lost in this special space. When he eventually sensed the Blood Mustering Bead in a saturated state from absorbing too much of the power there, he finally realized that he had spent a very long time within this space. 

Looking at the Battlers, he saw that their numbers had stabilized. Even the rate at which they were advancing had begun slowing down. Chen Feng knew that this was due to the Battler Bug Empress’ actions of suppressing their advancement. At any rate, the Battler Bug Empress was only at the Divine Monarch level at the moment. The fact that it could control so many bugs was already a decent feat. If the number of bugs were to rise too much, going beyond the Battler Bug Empress’ control, the hierarchy would collapse. In the end, the gain would not be worth the losses. 

Even the Gold Immortal stage unique creatures were no longer absorbing the energy as frantically as they did in the beginning. At any rate, they had been here for quite some time. No matter how excited they felt, it was just a matter of time before they calmed down. 

“Young Master!” The Starlight Overlord Beast transformed into his human form to appear before Chen Feng. 

“What is it?” Chen Feng felt puzzled. Normally, unless summoned by him, these unique creatures would not take the initiative to come find him. 

“Outsiders have entered this space. They seem to be from the Immortal Plane. There are Divine Princes and Divine Monarchs amongst them,” the Starlight Overlord Beast said. 

Surprised, Chen Feng then released his divine sense. As expected, he found several formidable auras in the distance. The auras were indeed from the Immortal Plane. It would appear that the other party had discovered the Battlers and were charging over. 

“Their number is not that high. You, lead some men over to capture them first. If you cannot capture them alive, just kill them,” Chen Feng said. 

“Understood!”

The Starlight Overlord Beast nodded his head before leading tens of Gold Immortal stage unique creatures with him as he swiftly charged forward. The Starlight Overlord Beast was himself at the Divine Prince level. Additionally, a few of the unique creatures that he brought with him were also at the Divine Prince level. In Chen Feng’s opinion, they should have no issues dealing with the outsiders. 

Just in case, though, Chen Feng also dispatched another 20 Gold Immortal stage Battlers and 20,000 half-step Gold Immortal stage Battlers over. 

Soon enough, the sounds of battle rang out from afar. By utilizing his eye technique, Chen Feng was able to see the battle. 

The two sides clashed and it did not take long before the Starlight Overlord Beast and the others returned.

“Young Master!” The Starlight Overlord Beast was somewhat embarrassed. In the earlier battle, one of the enemy cultivators had managed to escape. 

“It’s fine. You fellows just keep an eye on our surroundings more next.” Chen Feng nodded, not saying too much about it. In the earlier battle, they had killed off three Divine Monarchs and 10 Divine Princes. The one who escaped was a Divine Monarch. This result was quite good. 

I wonder which force they are from? One managed to escape. I fear this might bring cause some problems for us

“Speed up. Next, contact Jolt Immortal. Tell them to come meet me,” Chen Feng suddenly said. 

Chen Feng’s army had been collecting the energy in the space very quickly. At that very moment, however, under Chen Feng’s instructions, they went all out and the rate at which they collected the energy there increased by 20%.

“Longevity Celestial!”

As Chen Feng predicted, Jolt Immortal and Jolt Spirit arrived before him, an entangled expression on their faces. Facing Chen Feng, the only thing they could feel was fear. After receiving news that Chen Feng wanted to meet them, the two of them merely hesitated for a moment before choosing to come meet him. 

They knew. Given the force that Chen Feng now possessed, he could easily finish off the two of them. 

Even if Chen Feng were to not take action against them here, what would happen when they returned to the Celestial Longevity Plane? They would still have to face Chen Feng, unless they choose to become star wanderers, running as far as they could from Chen Feng. 

However, that was clearly an unrealistic decision. Moreover, Chen Feng did not seem to want to kill them this time. And so, bearing both the feelings of dread and wishful thinking, they went to meet Chen Feng. 

“Alright, now. As long as the two of you do not try to mess with me anymore, I will not pursue what happened earlier. At any rate, we are all members of the imperial family. We share the same roots,” Chen Feng said. 

“Yes, yes! We are all members of the imperial family. Back then, we had offended you. I hope that you can look past that,” Jolt Immortal hastily said. 

The might of Chen Feng’s current force was not something that Jolt Immortal’s group could match. Taking on the position of the inferior was the best choice. 

“Since you are willing to view it this way, we will be able to talk things out peacefully.” Chen Feng nodded. 

“I wonder, what do you want to talk about, Longevity Celestial? As long as we have the information, we will be sure to share it with you,” Jolt Immortal said with a smile. At the same time, he became truly at ease. Cultivators at their level would rarely lie. 

“How did you fellows find this space?” Chen Feng bluntly asked. 

“So, it’s that.” Jolt Immortal and Jolt Spirit grew even more at ease. 

“Truth be told, I had only discovered this space by accident. Back then, I had obtained a fragment of a magic treasure and deciphered a piece of information left within it. In the beginning, I did not think much about it and only investigated it as I was bored. Unexpectedly, the fragment of the magic treasure was formed using wicked power. It was only after I entered this space that I realized there was so much power in here. Although the energy here is very wicked, its quality is very high and easy to absorb. Cultivating here is the equivalent of cultivating in the Celestial Longevity Plane for 10 days. Due to that, I began having some thoughts about this and dispatched my force over to cultivate here,” Jolt Immortal said. 

“Ha ha ha! The force that you two possess is very strong. If all the cultivators in our Longevity Clan possess that kind of force, our Celestial Longevity Plane would have no problems dominating the Myriad Celestial Planes,” Chen Feng said with a smile. 

Jolt Immortal’s and Jolt Spirit’s faces turned red and they said nothing. To have a junior say such ridiculing words at them did not feel good. 

“Seniors, how much do you two know about this space? For example, what do you know of the Great Fiends hidden underground?” Chen Feng asked again. 

“How did you know that?” Jolt Immortal and Jolt Spirit promptly uttered in shock. 

“Looks like you two also know that this place belongs to the Great Fiends. This is surprising,” Chen Feng said with a laugh. 

“It’s nothing surprising. There were minor bits of information recorded in the fragment of the magic treasure that we obtained. Only, it has been quite some time since we entered this space, but we have yet to find any traces of the Great Fiends. We have also inspected the ground before, but found nothing. How did you find out about them, Young Master?” asked a surprised Jolt Immortal.

“Naturally, I have my own ways. To tell you the truth, we are presently in great danger. There are indeed Great Fiends within this space. In addition, there are a lot of them here. I believe you fellows must have come across some large energy crystal mines. Beneath those mines is a special space. The Great Fiends are gathered within the special space,” Chen Feng said. 

“The gathering spot of the Great Fiends!” The faces of Jolt Immortal and Jolt Spirit instantly turned pale. Unlike Chen Feng, the two of them – through the information they had obtained beforehand – knew just how terrifying the Great Fiends were. If Chen Feng’s words were true and this was truly a place where Great Fiends were gathered, the emergence of the Great Fiends would result in the deaths of every single one of them.

“Young Master, you mean?” Jolt Spirit asked. 

“Have you fellows ever devoured a type of super large spirit vein?” Chen Feng asked. When he saw the expression on their faces, he no longer needed their answer. 

“I am certain that the Great Fiends are gathered here, but I do not know when they will wake up. That said, the energy crystals here are the equivalent of the Great Fiends’ food supply. And now that we have plundered their food supply, once they emerge, they will surely not let us go. I suggest gathering up our men. We’ll have an easier time fleeing once something happens,” Chen Feng said. 

“What about these?” Jolt Immortal then pointed at the sky-blotting swarm of Battlers, not saying anything else. 

“Those guys are different from human cultivators. I have said all that needs to be said. What you choose to do next will be up to you. By the way, earlier, a group of Gold Immortals from the Immortal Plane had entered this space. My men attacked and killed them, but one of them managed to get away in the end. I believe that it would not take long before even more Immortal Plane cultivators appear here,” Chen Feng continued. 

“Someone from the Immortal Plane managed to discover this place as well? That can’t be right. This space should be very hard to enter.” After saying that, however, Jolt Immortal stopped. Chen Feng was living proof that doing so was possible. If Chen Feng could do it, others should be able to do so as well. 

In the end, Jolt Immortal said, “Young Master, thank you for the warning. However, I still need to stay in this space for a while longer. I am already on the verge of breaking through. My subordinates also need to level up.”

“Up to you. I had given you a warning since we are from the same family. As for what you plan on doing, I will not interfere. But if something happens, for the sake of self-preservation, I might not be able to help,” Chen Feng said indifferently. 

“Even so, we are thankful, Young Master,” Jolt Spirit was quick to say.

Chen Feng watched as Jolt Immortal and Jolt Spirit left. Then, he released a sigh. He could feel the killing intent gathering within his heart gradually dissipating away. Following that, his state improved slightly. 

It had been a while since he entered this space. Due to the long-term influence of the wicked power, Chen Feng had felt somewhat irritable and suffocated. The reason he asked for Jolt Immortal and Jolt Spirit was so he could test himself, to see if he could suppress the killing intent within him. In the end, he did more than just suppress the killing intent, he made it disappear. This was a great leap forward in his cultivation progress. 

Unbeknownst to Jolt Immortal and Jolt Spirit, they had just emerged from the edge of death’s door. If Chen Feng had failed to suppress the killing intent within him earlier, the two of them would have died. 

It is a struggle even for me who possesses the Chaos Constitution. The other cultivators must not be having an easy time either. Chen Feng kept an eye on the state of his subordinates. The situation with the Battlers was fairly all right. With the Battler Bug Empress in control, nothing unexpected happened. Chen Feng, however, was worried about the Gold Immortal stage unique creatures. 

As expected, after cultivating for some time, some of the unique creatures began showing signs of cultivation deviation. Some who cultivated the dao of slaughter became completely immersed in their state of cultivation, incapable of breaking free. 

Worried, Chen Feng swiftly took action to wake up the unique creatures. In the end, though, two of them died due to their inner demons. 

Seeing someone die while cultivating there immediately sobered the other unique creatures. 

“Young Master, the wicked power here seems to be growing even thicker. Additionally, it is also becoming increasingly strong,” one of the unique creatures that cultivated the dao of wickedness suddenly said. 

“Is that so? Looks like the Great Fiends here are about to wake up,” Chen Feng said after a moment’s consideration. 

“Looks like it’s time to leave.” After saying that, Chen Feng felt a twinge of regret. Looking at his Gold Immortal stage subordinates, he saw the same expression on their faces. 

“I’ll give you fellows one more month. No more cultivation. Just focus on collecting the energy here. Once the time comes, we’ll leave immediately.” In the end, Chen Feng gave the order.
