“Brother Chen, we need to quickly charge out. We made a mistake. If Li Wenhou could bring out something like this, he must possess something even better to collect the two corpses,” Liu Wuxiang hastily said.
“What methods do you have to deal with this situation? The way I see it, these silk threads are not easy to handle,” Chen Feng said, not rushing to deal with them.
“Ha ha ha ha! Do you fellows think that I have no way of collecting these two corpses? Liu Wuxiang, aren’t you looking down on me too much here?” Li Wenhou suddenly laughed loudly again. With a wave of his hand, he produced a spatial pouch. Fluttering in the wind, the spatial pouch then swiftly grew in size to cover the entire space above them.
“Do you know what this is? Ha ha ha! A pity, you cannot see what’s happening out here clearly. As long as I obtain these two corpses and the magic treasures on them, there will be hope for me to assail the Ascendant Immortal stage. Once I reach the Ascendant Immortal stage, killing you fellows would be as easy as squeezing a bug!” Li Wenhou’s voice flowed into the encased area.
“This is bad. That’s a cosmos pouch!” Light glinted across Liu Wuxiang’s eyes.
“Cosmos pouch?” Chen Feng felt puzzled.
“Simply put, it is a high-grade spatial pouch. The stronger ones can even collect a planet. Although it will be difficult, it should be possible for the cosmos pouch to collect the two corpses.”
“I have a way of breaking out of here. However, my cultivation base will be severely depleted once we break out. I fear I will no longer have the strength to deal with Li Wenhou then.” Liu Wuxiang appeared to be truly anxious.
“Since it will be difficult to collect the corpses, let’s not rush this. We’ll wait until he has exhausted the corpses’ power to resist before taking action,” Chen Feng said after a moment’s consideration.
Hearing Chen Feng’s words, Liu Wuxiang’s eyes lit up. “Brother Chen, you have a way to get rid of these silk threads?”
The golden silk threads were getting increasingly close to them. Several had already started entangling their bodies.
“It should be fine.” Chen Feng nodded and beckoned with one hand. Next, the golden silk threads before him changed their movement trajectory as they all flew into his palm before disappearing from sight.
A complicated look flashed across Liu Wuxiang’s eyes, but he also inwardly breathed a sigh of relief. With this, there will be no need for him to use his trump card.
This Chen Feng is truly extraordinary. To think that he could so easily collect the Myriad Layers Goldencoil Silk. Those silk threads were produced by an Ancient Gold Silkworm at the Yao (Earthen) Immortal stage, after all. Judging from that, it would appear that this Chen Feng is strong enough to fight me. Not to mention, there is also the Yao Immortal bodyguard beside him. Who knows what other abilities he possesses?
If so, there is no need to get into a conflict with him. I will have to change my plan. Maybe, I will be able to cooperate with him next.
Moving away from Liu Wuxiang’s thoughts and plans, Chen Feng was leisurely collecting the surrounding silk threads. Naturally, Chen Feng himself did not possess this ability. He was borrowing the power of others.
This time, though, he was not utilizing the Longevity Tower’s power. Of course, the Longevity Tower was well capable of doing this as well.
Instead, Chen Feng was secretly utilizing the power of the Immortal Skylodge Mansion. Given Chen Feng’s present level of strength, he was still incapable of fully controlling the Immortal Skylodge Mansion. Even so, mobilizing some of this Immortal artefact’s power was still within his limits.
Outside, Li Wenhou, who was utilizing the cosmos pouch to collect the two corpses, had triggered an act of resistance from the two corpses. Again, the two corpses belonged to Ascendant Immortals. Although they had died, the coercive atmosphere of power that the corpses were naturally releasing was not something that the average cultivator could face or approach. Not to mention, there were also two ferocious weapons at the Immortal tier on the two corpses. The aura of power that the two weapons were emanating was even more overbearing compared to the aura of the two corpses.
“Urgh!” In order to have the cosmos pouch unleash its strongest level of power, Li Wenhou exerted himself and his face contorted. Li Wenhou believed that the cosmos pouch in his possession was already good enough to collect the two Ascendant Immortal corpses. Of course, it will be a somewhat difficult process.
Normally, Li Wenhou would have slowly taken his time to collect the two corpses. However, this was not the time for it. Li Wenhou did not believe that he could entrap Liu Wuxiang and the others for long.
Thus, what he needed to do right now was to collect the two corpses and run away before they break out.
On the other hand, Chen Feng was still leisurely collecting the golden silk threads. During that time, he had also fused the golden silk threads he collected with his Immortal-binding Rope.
In the beginning, the Immortal-binding Rope was only a Prized artefact. After so many tempering processes by Chen Feng, it was already a grade 4 Sacred artefact. It was quite a decent growth rate. However, when compared to Chen Feng’s growth rate, it was somewhat slow. The enemies that Chen Feng was now facing were already at the Human Immortal stage. At that very moment, his enemy was an Earthen Immortal. Due to that, the effectiveness of the Immortal-binding Rope became somewhat weak.
“Brother Chen, isn’t this a little slow? Should I take action as well?” Seeing Chen Feng’s leisurely attitude, Liu Wuxiang grew apprehensive. If only he had known, he would have brought out his own Yao-refining Furnace out earlier.
“No rush. Just wait,” said Chen Feng, who then sped up his rate of absorption.
Li Wenhou’s screams could be heard. Clearly, he had to exert a considerable effort in order to collect the two Ascendant Immortal corpses.
“Hopefully, there are no other cultivators,” Liu Wuxiang said, a slight look of concern on his face.
One hour later…
“Ha ha ha ha ha! I am about to succeed! You two can just stay inside!” Li Wenhou’s voice flowed into the encased area again.
“Hurry, he is about to succeed!” Liu Wuxiang grew anxious.
“Brother Liu, get ready to fight.” Right after Chen Feng said that, the vortex on his palm abruptly grew in size and the golden silk threads before him became like a golden river as they surged into the vortex.
In just one breath’s worth of time, all of the golden silk threads had been collected.
The aura of an Immortal artefact! Liu Wuxiang was finally able to notice the aura radiating out from Chen Feng’s body. However, there was no time for him to think too much about it. He hurled out his Yao-refining Furnace forward to attack Li Wenhou.
“How is this possible?!”
Seeing Liu Wuxiang emerge, Li Wenhou instantly cried out, a tone of unwillingness in his voice. He had not expected this at all.
The Myriad Layers Goldencoil Silk is a Dao-tier magic treasure! If it weren’t for these two Ascendant Immortal corpses, I wouldn’t have used it!
“Collect!” He was already on the verge of succeeding. How could he accept any other outcome? Thus, Li Wenhou pushed out all the power within his body as he attempted to collect the two corpses as quickly as he could.
But would Liu Wuxiang give him the chance to do that? The Yao-refining Furnace that Liu Wuxiang hurled forward had already smashed furiously into the cosmos pouch.
A loud booming sound rang out, seemingly heralding the annihilation of the world. The cosmos pouch shook and slowly shrank before flying back to Li Wenhou’s hand.
Realizing that his chance to take the corpses had disappeared, Li Wenhou roared as he attempted to flee. He knew that staying behind would not help him in the slightest.
“You want to leave? Not so fast!”
The Yao-refining Furnace in Liu Wuxiang’s hand swiftly charged forward to suck Li Wenhou into itself. Next, flames burned as it began refining Li Wenhou.
“Argh, I cannot accept this! Let me out!
“Liu Wuxiang, you will die a horrible death for this! Let me out!”
Li Wenhou only managed to scream a few times before his voice came to an abrupt halt. The Yao-refining Furnace had turned him into ash.
As Liu Wuxiang was dealing with Li Wenhou, Chen Feng appeared before one of the corpses. He had considered this earlier. One of the corpses was the corpse of an Ascendant Immortal while the other one was the corpse of a Nether Immortal. Additionally, there was an Immortal artefact on each corpse.
The one lying on the ground was the corpse of the Nether Immortal and an Immortal-tier lance pierced its body. The seated corpse was of an Ascendant Immortal from the Immortal Plane. Likewise, there was a bone lance piercing his body.
“What is there to think about? Just collect both,” Tower said.
No. After pondering it for a moment, Chen Feng rejected the idea. Next, his figure dashed forward to arrive beside the corpse of the Nether Immortal. Reaching out with his hand, he gripped the battle lance.
Despite having prepared himself for it, the power radiating out from the battle lance had still nearly quaked him to death. Cracks spread out across his resilient fleshly body.
How is this possible? I am already utilizing the Blood Mustering Bead’s power. Not to mention, the cosmos pouch had already exhausted a portion of its power earlier. Chen Feng was shocked. He promptly linked up with the Immortal Skylodge Mansion. The Immortal artefact’s power flowed forward and Chen Feng’s fleshly body quickly healed up. Even so, it felt as though he would soon lose his grip on the battle lance. At the same time, the power emanating from the battle lance seemingly woke up, becoming even stronger as a result.
“Tower, I’ll leave this to you,” Chen Feng said.
“Ha ha! Thankfully, the corpse is suppressing a major portion of this battle lance’s power, otherwise it would’ve been hard for me,” Tower said with a smile. Next, he stretched his hand out and grasped. With a swooshing sound, the battle lance was pulled out from the corpse. Transforming into a stream of light, it then entered the Longevity Tower.
After entering the Longevity Tower, the battle lance fully recovered. A formidable aura abruptly broke out and sharp energy blasts struck the interior of the Longevity Tower. The resulting soundwaves was deafening. However, not a single mark was left on the surface. It did, however, caused the Longevity Tower to shake violently.
“Huh, as expected. This is a whole Immortal artefact. The artefact spirit inside has fully awakened. Given my present state, I am simply incapable of suppressing it. Although it cannot harm my body, it can exhaust my strength,” Tower said coolly.
“What should we do then?” Chen Feng grew somewhat anxious. In the past, all the Immortal artefacts that Tower collected had been fragments. This time, however, it was an intact Immortal artefact. This would be troublesome.
“Don’t worry! Don’t you have the Immortal Skylodge Mansion? The two of us will join forces. Collecting this Immortal artefact will be a piece of cake,” Tower said with a chuckle. He appeared unconcerned at all.
Chen Feng nodded. With a thought, he brought out the Immortal Skylodge Mansion, which appeared above the battle lance. Sensing the aura coming out from the battle lance, the Immortal Skylodge Mansion shook fiercely as well. Next, a formidable atmosphere of coercive power descended from the Immortal artefact towards the battle lance.
Tower then took action, utilizing the Longevity Tower’s power to suppress the battle lance.
With the two of them there to handle the battle lance, there was no longer any need for Chen Feng to worry. He turned his attention to what was happening outside.
Seeing how easily Chen Feng had taken away the battle lance, the expression on Liu Wuxiang’s face flickered. He wanted to say something, but he did not know what exactly to say.
Sighing, he then decided to speak up. He could see that Chen Feng had no intentions of speaking up first. “Brother Chen, you have quite the ability. However, is our previous agreement still in effect?”
