Chapter 1405 Friends

 

“Hey, I am a member of the Immortal Court, after all. Aren’t you fellows being inappropriate by giving such an appraisal in front of me,” Princess Purplejade said. 

“Although you are a member of the Immortal Court, it is obvious that you are mingling with us now. I believe you are probably not doing well in the Immortal Court, no?” Belle Zi Yan said.

“Belle Zi Yan. You possess a good cultivation talent and strength, something of a leading figure of your generation. And while it hadn’t been all that long since you reached the Ageless Gold Immortal stage, you have killed over 10 Divine Princes. Despite all that, you are also not having a smooth time in the Celestial Firecloud Plane, no? I hear that Belle Qing Xia is always suppressing you. It is not because she is stronger than you, but because compared to her, you lack tact.” Princess Purplejade responded with barbed words as well.

“Insolence! A minor princess of the Immortal Court dares to put on airs before us cultivators from the Celestial Planes?” Belle Zi Yan grew somewhat furious and killing intent glinted across her eyes. 

“You fellows from the Celestial Plane are truly arrogant. Are you all incapable of changing this nature of yours? If it weren’t for this arrogance of yours, our Immortal Plane would not have been able to develop this much. I have to say, if your Myriad Celestial Planes do not unite, in the end, our Immortal Court would either wipe you out or annex you. You fellows simply do not know just how powerful our Immortal Court is right now.” Princess Purplejade also grew furious.

“If your Immortal Court is so strong, why come here?” Belle Zi Yan countered. 

As the two women were quarrelling, Tian Gang and the others kept glancing at Chen Feng. A few of them revealed smiling eyes.

Everyone knew that Belle Zi Yan’d had feelings for Chen Feng since they were young. Back then, however, Chen Feng had feelings for Belle Qing Xia. Interestingly, the two of them were also rivals. 

Additionally, Belle Zi Yan also had a relatively fiery temper. Thus, upon finding out that Princess Purplejade was here, Tian Gang and the others had long since prepared themselves for a drama. 

As predicted, the two females started quarrelling the moment they met. 

Chen Feng shook his head, a wry smile on his face. Princess Purplejade was noble and poised while Belle Zi Yan was beautiful and alluring. Temperament wise, the two of them had their own strong points. In terms of cultivation, the two of them had Heaven-defying talents. To be able to attain the Ageless Gold Immortal stage after just a million years of cultivation, they were practically phoenixes amongst women. Even if the two of them were to fight, they would likely be incapable of determining the victor. 

Princess Purplejade had always been a lofty character, accustomed to giving orders. As for Belle Zi Yan, she had a fiery temper. And now, it would appear that she had some feelings for Chen Feng. This gave Chen Feng a headache. 

“You two.” Chen Feng could not stop himself from speaking up. On the other hand, it would appear that Tian Gang and the others had no interest in dissuading them from starting a fight. 

Boom! Boom!

Chen Feng had barely spoken up when Princess Purplejade and Belle Zi Yan attacked simultaneously. A formidable wave of energy spread into their surroundings. Magiris and the others were unaffected, but Chen Feng was not. With a swooshing sound, his figure was blasted away to smash down two buildings and a fake mountain before coming to a halt. 

“Cough! Cough! Cough!”

Naturally, given how strong his fleshly body was, he was not wounded. Only, he did cut quite the wretched sight. Even when facing Divine Monarchs or when he was besieged by many others, he would not appear so wretched. At any rate, becoming wounded did not mean one would appear wretched.

The commotion quickly alarmed some guards. In but the blink of an eye, tens of Gold Immortal stage guards arrived before Chen Feng. Another group of guards moved forward to surround Princess Purplejade and the others. 

In truth, Chen Feng had been careless. Knowing that they would not do anything bad towards him, he had chosen to not bring out his combat puppets earlier. But as his figure was sent flying just now, he thought to himself, Next time, no matter what happens, I must have the combat puppets guard me closely. 

“Are you alright?”

Belle Zi Yan went towards Chen Feng and stretched her hand out to support him, a look of concern on her face. 

Oh, no! This girl actually likes me. This is not good. Chen Feng’s heart lurched. Belle Zi Yan’s gaze was simply too impactful. 

Princess Purplejade, though, appeared indifferent. She had fought alongside Chen Feng many times before. And while she knew that Chen Feng’s strength was greatly reduced, his Chaos Constitution alone was not something that she could easily damage. The reason Chen Feng was sent flying earlier was because he was careless.

“Fellows, you all have highly formidable cultivation bases. In comparison, I am somewhat weak.” Chen Feng laughed, walking forward. At the same time, he also used the opportunity to extricate himself from Belle Zi Yan’s arm. 

“Ha ha ha! Longevity Celestial, to think that there would be times when you appear so wretched!” Magiris laughed.  

“Humph! Do you fellows only know how to watch?” Chen Feng said in dissatisfaction. What happened to him earlier would not have happened if anyone of them had just taken action. However, it was obvious that all of them were there to just watch the show. 

“Longevity Celestial, what is up with your cultivation base?” Tian Gang asked, a note of concern in his voice. 

“Yes, weren’t you captured by the Tree of Life back then?” Belle Zi Yan stepped forward and asked. That said, Chen Feng’s action of extricating himself from her arm just now had caused a look of disappointment to appear deep within her eyes. 

“I have some cards up my sleeves, allowing me to escape in the end. However, I ended up suffering from severe injuries. There is no telling when I’ll be able to fully recover,” Chen Feng replied. 

“You have the Chaos Constitution. You should be able to recover from even the most grievous of injuries, no?” Jian Jun asked, feeling dubious about it. 

“Do not forget. The other party is a Paramount Gold Immortal. More, it is the Tree of Life. Back then, I had gone far away from it. But even then, my essence was wounded. The Chaos Constitution is not omnipotent. While it can recover, time is needed,” Chen Feng said smilingly. 

“No wonder you have not gone out since returning to the Longevity Alliance,” Tian Gang said. 

“Given my present level of strength and the chaotic situation outside, going out is suicide. I’ll have to wait until I recover.” Chen Feng chuckled.

“I fear that even this place is not safe. Although you have an army of bugs, this army of bugs might bring you endless troubles,” Jian Jun said. 

“There’s no helping it. The fact that I possess an army of bugs is no longer a secret. It is only just a matter of time before troubles come knocking. However, if their Paramount Gold Immortals take action, our Celestial Longevity Plane’s Paramount Gold Immortals will not simply stand by and do nothing about it. This place may be far away from the Celestial Longevity Plane, but the dao of paramountcy is something that transcends space-time. As for Divine Monarchs, I can still handle them,” Chen Feng said with a smile. 

“Do you have no intentions of returning? Return to the Celestial Longevity Plane,” Wu Ren said, frowning. 

“I still can’t go back yet. I have this feeling. Staying in the Immortal Plane will be safer for me. Moreover, I also have some affairs to handle here,” Chen Feng said.

“Very well. If that’s the case, I will stay here as well. I will wait for you to go back and follow you when you do,” Wu Ren said. 

“Not a problem. You are welcomed here,” Chen Feng said with a smile. He knew a little about Wu Ren’s objective. In his opinion, Wu Ren was also quite the talent, worthy of his assistance. Additionally, Wu Ren was not alone. He had a force with him that was worth recruiting. 

From what Chen Feng could see, the situation of their Limitless Immortal Region had stabilized somewhat. However, he also knew that this was just a transitional period. There was no telling when a stronger wave of enemies would appear. Back then, the Celestial Longevity Plane had managed to stop the attack from the Immortal Court and Slaughterers, but there was no telling what would happen next time.  

At any rate, Chen Feng had already borne witness to the strength of the Slaughterers. The number of bugs that a single Bug Empress at the Paramount Gold Immortal stage could command was simply too terrifying. By gathering up its forces, it could wipe out some Heaven-defying races and easily obliterate some life-bearing worlds. Even some Celestial Planes would be incapable of stopping them. The sight of tens of billions of Slaughterers swarming forward alone was shocking enough. Chen Feng, though, knew that many Slaughterer Bug Empresses had entered this universe. He had only encountered one of them back then. 

In addition to Slaughterers, there were also Destroyers, Devourers, Reapers and Soul Hunters. All of them were the varying types of bugs from the bug race. Chen Feng himself possessed the corpse of a Devourer Bug Empress.

In Chen Feng’s opinion, only when the Myriad Celestial Planes were united would they be able to deal with the incoming disaster. However, it was very clear that such a scenario was an impossibility. The various Celestial Planes were still constantly fighting one another. 

Whenever he thought of that, Chen Feng would feel somewhat frustrated. This was not something he could change. Due to that, every time the thought surfaced, he would break it apart. 

Tian Gang and the others stayed in the Longevity Alliance for some time. Some left and some stayed behind. 

Having received Chen Feng’s support, Princess Purplejade obtained 20 Divine Princes. When Belle Zi Yan found out about this matter, her temper erupted and no one dared to go near her. 

Unbeknownst to Chen Feng, a battle erupted between the two females. The two of them were evenly matched. In the end, the guards from the Longevity Alliance split them up. The two of them sustained light injuries from the battle. Naturally, it was only because the two of them did not bring out their trump cards and secret techniques. If they had done so, they would have been able to determine a victor. 

Wu Ren and two Gold Immortals from the Vajra Clan chose to stay behind.

As for Jian Jun, Tian Gang and Tian Yun, they left. Belle Zi Yan was amongst the second group to leave. Chen Feng’s actions of staying in cultivation retreat all the time seemed as though he was deliberately avoiding her. Moreover, she also had some matters to attend to. And so, she left. 

Magiris chose to stay and manage the affairs of the Longevity Alliance. At any rate, some of his forces were there as well. Nor to mention, Chen Feng was slacking off. Thus, Magiris had no choice but to stay behind for some time.

Besides them, there were still some other cultivators who remained. These fellows, several of them, were star wanderers. They possessed formidable strength and a strong aura of the stars, indicating that these fellows were all veteran of hundreds of battles. These were characters who had gone through the ups and downs of life. 

There were eight of them in total, two Divine Princes and six Ageless Gold Immortals. Although Chen Feng had fought Paramount Gold Immortals before, he did not look down on the Ageless Gold Immortals who came to serve him. Instead, he sincerely welcomed them. 

In addition, Chen Feng also had a feeling that these fellows were more than meets the eye. 

“We want to serve Young Master Longevity Celestial. We hope that you can take us in!” said He Kong, one of the cultivators. As for the others, they maintained an impassive expression and said nothing. Clearly, they had discussed this through and agreed to let He Kong deal with this. 

“Not a problem. As long as you fellows are sincere, our Longevity Alliance will welcome any friends, no matter where they are from. Not to mention, you fellows are formidable Gold Immortals,” Chen Feng said smilingly. 

“Young Master, are you not going to inquire our origins?” He Kong said, smiling as well. 

“If you fellows want to tell me, then feel free to do so. But if you do not wish to, I will not force you to. Our Longevity Alliance is a gathering of miscellaneous forces to begin with. There are forces from the Immortal Plane, the Myriad Celestial Planes and even those from the Dark Plane and other worlds. More, there are also the bugs and unique creatures. Fellows, do you think I would care about your origins? Do not forget, almost all of our Myriad Celestial Planes were established by Heaven-defying races,” Chen Feng slowly said. 

As expected, upon hearing the words ‘Heaven-defying races”, their eyes lit up. 

“In truth, the eight of us are the remnants of some Heaven-defying races. We came from six different clans. Young Master should already know, but for clans as formidable as ours, it is generally very difficult for our clans to be drowned by the river of time,” He Kong said. 

“War and destruction. Who is your enemy?” Chen Feng nodded before asking. 

“The Immortal Court!”

“The Slaughterers!”

“The Divine Demon Clan!”

This time, He Kong was not the only one who spoke up. 

“Very well. Those guys are also the enemies of our Celestial Longevity Plane. I welcome you all,” Chen Feng said with a smile. 

“Greetings to the Young Master!”

The eight cultivators saluted Chen Feng formally. This also indicated their recognition of Chen Feng as their leader.
