Finally, Chen Feng brought out the Deepsea Maelstrom.
“You want to snatch my Lightning Bead?” Chen Feng said with a derisive grin.
“I am not snatching. I just do not want you to kill others. Now, behave yourself and stay quiet.” The high-level Earthen Immortal used one hand to refine the Lightning Bead while his other hand pressed down on Chen Feng.
“Ha ha ha! Kid, die!” Patriarch Boltlash made use of the opportunity. Thinking that the chance for him to turn the situation around had arrived, he lashed out with his whip at Chen Feng.
Immortal Pining Butterfly stood up, wanting to help. However, a terrifying aura of power suddenly broke out from Chen Feng’s hand, causing Immortal Pining Butterfly to fall back.
Those two are dead.
Like a black hole, the Deepsea Maelstrom devoured Patriarch Boltlash and his aura disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Next, the Deepsea Maelstrom charged towards the high-level Earthen Immortal. Since he had taken action, Chen Feng would kill this fellow off as well.
“A top-grade Dao artefact!”
The high-level Earthen Immortal’s face sank as the Deepsea Maelstrom began grinding his palm silhouette into bits. Sensing the power of destruction behind the massive maelstrom, the high-level Earthen Immortal was quick to release his grip on the Lightning Bead. His figure flashed quickly – like lightning – to move far away.
“You want to leave now? It’s too late! Since you decided to take action, die!” Chen Feng scoffed and strode forward, the Deepsea Maelstrom moving after the high-level Earthen Immortal.
“Young man, stop it.”
An even stronger Earthen Immortal finally spoke up. This time, it was a peak-level Earthen Immortal. His words alone caused Chen Feng’s soul to shake and even the Deepsea Maelstrom’s movements slowed down.
“Die!” Chen Feng ignored the peak-level Earthen Immortal’s obstructive attempt and the Deepsea Maelstrom spun furiously again to smash the high-level Earthen Immortal.
“Argh, save me!” The high-level Earthen Immortal was pulled into the maelstrom. However, he was not instantly shredded apart away.
The peak-level Earthen Immortal was finally enraged. He jabbed a finger out and a finger blast pierced through the Deepsea Maelstrom to pull the high-level Earthen Immortal out.
However, Chen Feng’s figure flashed forward and the Lightning Bead in his hand shot out. After barely making it out alive, the battered high-level Earthen Immortal had felt overjoyed when the Lightning Bead suddenly struck him and his body blew up. Next, a massive lightning hand emerged from the Lightning Bead to grasp and devour the remains of the high-level Earthen Immortal.
“You’re courting death!”
The peak-level Earthen Immortal stood up. He wore grey-coloured robes. Although he was not particularly tall, his action of standing up gave the appearance of one rising up to the firmament. The mental pressure he gave off strained Chen Feng’s soul so much that it felt as though it might shatter apart.
A peak-level Earthen Immortal could already be considered as a pinnacle existence within Eternal World. Another advance in cultivation level would bring him to the Ascendant Immortal stage. The power of an Ascendant Immortal would face the rejection of the grand dao of the world. Due to that, they would ascend to the Immortal Plane. In most cases, cultivators on this level would be exploring outer space to find the serendipity needed to continue advancing higher. Without that, it would be very hard for them to advance any further in their cultivation.
Against an expert of this level, I will have to mobilize the Immortal artefacts. Additionally, I also need Tower’s help. I am simply no match for him. Although Chen Feng had participated in a fight between Ascendant Immortals before, that was not his own power. He had to rely completely on his magic treasures.
As Chen Feng was considering taking out his Immortal artefact to fight, sword light suddenly flared out. With a slash, it seemingly cleaved the world. Even space was sliced apart. The atmosphere of power that the grey-robed Earthen Immortal created was instantly sliced to pieces. After that, the sword light shattered into motes of starlight, which then shot towards the grey-robed Earthen Immortal from every direction.
The grey-robed Earthen Immortal waved his hand and space shattered to form a hole filled with emptiness. The black hole then exerted a formidable suction force to devour all the motes of starlight.
Another beam of sword light slashed forward. This one was even more domineering and its movement more unpredictable. The earlier beam was capable of cleaving the world. This one was capable of cleaving the starry sky.
“Turbid Heaven Geocompass!” The grey-robed Earthen Immortal spread his arms forward and they shook tens of thousands of times in a flash as a massive geocompass appeared. The geocompass appeared quaint and primeval and the aura of the universe emanated out from it.
The beam of sword light struck the geocompass, breaking it. As a result, the grey-robed Earthen Immortal was sent flying.
“Please stop!” the grey-robed Earthen Immortal shouted, a trace of fear flashing across his eyes.
Only then did the cultivators there realized that the sword light was sent out by a cyan-robed cultivator who was sitting cross-legged around the altar. Sporting a lean face, he was dressed completely in cyan-coloured robes and a sword was slung across his back while a wine gourd hung down his waist. Apart from his somewhat long eyebrows, there was nothing else striking about him.
However, when all the cultivators there saw that it was him taking action, they silently sighed.
So, he is the one attacking. Looks like Patriarch Turbid Heaven won’t be able to escape.
The grey-robed Earthen Immortal was Patriarch Turbid Heaven, a peak-level Earthen Immortal with quite the renown within the entire world of cultivation. As someone from Turbid Heaven Pavilion, he possessed a formidable cultivation base and could be counted as one of the few pinnacle experts of Eternal World.
On the other hand, they do not know the origin of this cyan-robed cultivator. However, they were aware of his nigh unfathomable power. In their opinion, despite Patriarch Turbid Heaven’s great powers, with a cultivation base that was already close to the Ascendant Immortal stage, he was still lacking when compared to this cyan-robed cultivator.
“Patriarch Turbid Heaven kicked the iron plate this time.”
As the cultivators there discussed the issue, Chen Feng’s eyes widened. He had recognized the cyan-robed cultivator.
At first, Chen Feng was taken aback. Next, however, he became excited.
In the past, when Chen Feng was still very weak, he had met a cyan-robed cultivator. Back then, that cyan-robed cultivator had given Chen Feng a bowl of fine wine, which increased Chen Feng’s cultivation base by 100 years. Throughout the years, Chen Feng would always try to find information about the cyan-robed cultivator. He even wondered what cultivation level that cyan-robed cultivator was at. As Chen Feng’s cultivation base rose higher and higher, he had speculated that the cyan-robed cultivator was only a Human Immortal. After finally meeting him again, Chen Feng came to realize that he was mistaken.
The fact that he could send a peak-level Earthen Immortal flying with a slash told Chen Feng everything he needed to know.
“Please wait! Please wait! I didn’t know that the kid is your acquaintance!” Seeing no response from the cyan-robed cultivator, Patriarch Turbid Heaven began panicking.
The cyan-robed cultivator sent another beam of sword light forward. This one was also different from the previous two beams. This one was even stronger, containing rumbling thunderbolts. In the face of this sword beam, every one of the cultivators there suddenly felt miniscule.
Blood sprayed out from Patriarch Turbid Heaven’s mouth as his figure was thrown backwards, a look of disbelief in his eyes. Like everyone else, he had known that the cyan-robed cultivator was very powerful. Unexpectedly, he was this powerful! He could grievously wound a peak-level Earthen Immortal with just a wave of his hand. Rather, it would be more accurate to say that the cyan-robed cultivator simply did not have any intention of killing him with that move.
Having reached that conclusion, everyone grew even more curious about the cyan-robed cultivator’s origins.
“Senior!” Chen Feng walked over in excitement. The cyan-robed cultivator looked the same as he did back then. Even his aura remained unchanged. In fact, Chen Feng wondered if what happened earlier was real.
The cyan-robed cultivator remained seated on the ground, his eyes regarding Chen Feng as he smiled. “Not bad. Unexpectedly, after just a couple of years, you could already grow so much. Looks like I was not mistaken.”
“This is also thanks to senior.” Chen Feng saluted respectfully.
“It’s just a bowl of wine. It is nothing.” The cyan-robed cultivator waved it off. Suddenly, his eyes shone as he looked at Chen Feng. Seeing that shocked Chen Feng, who did not understand what was happening.
“No wonder. So, you are from the Longevity Clan.” The cyan-robed cultivator’s next words left Chen Feng utterly shocked.
“Senior, you?” Chen Feng’s face sank.
“Don’t worry, I mean you no harm. Only, I had failed to notice it back then. I believe it must be because you have now established a link with the Celestial Longevity Plane.” After pondering for a moment, the cyan-robed cultivator came to understand.
As Chen Feng was about to ask some more questions, Immortal Pining Butterfly stepped forward and saluted respectfully.
“No need for the formalities. Not bad. Looks like you are from Domain World, girl. Even there, you must be a pinnacle-level genius. When you return after this training session, you will be able to break through to the Earthen Immortal stage.” One glance was all it took for the cyan-robed cultivator to see through Immortal Pining Butterfly’s origins.
On the other side, Patriarch Turbid Heaven, who had managed to heal up some of his wounds, swiftly hid himself. He dared not even raise his eyes to peek at them. After having taken the earlier sword beam, he had come to know just how terrifying the cyan-robed cultivator was. The cyan-robed cultivator had most certainly chosen to spare his life earlier, otherwise he would have died with just one move.
Both were peak-level Earthen Immortals, but there was a world of difference between them.
“Looks like the two of them will have a firm foothold here.”
“Senior, how long have you been staying here?” Chen Feng asked, curious.
“It’s been close to 10 years now. During these 10 years, my cultivation base has improved by leaps and bounds. Even so, collecting this Immortal artefact will be terribly difficult.”
“By the way, how should I address senior?”
“Bi Qing?” Chen Feng felt somewhat puzzled to hear that name.
“He is a cultivator from the Celestial Clearblue Plane. Additionally, according to my calculations, he must have reincarnated himself, to be reborn in Eternal World,” Tower secretly said.
Celestial Clearblue Plane! Chen Feng was startled. Instantly, he came to understand how Bi Qing could determine that he was from the Longevity Clan. Firstly, Bi Qing was far stronger than him. Secondly, the two of them were from the Myriad Celestial Planes.
“If so, can you calculate out his cultivation base from his previous life?” Chen Feng secretly asked.
“In order to reincarnate himself and regain his memories quickly so that his cultivation base could rise quickly, he needs to be at the True Immortal stage, at least. In my opinion, though, in his past life, he should be a Heavenly Immortal.”
“True Immortal. Heavenly Immortal.” Chen Feng nodded. If he hadn’t recovered his memories, he would not have known which cultivation stages those were. At present, however, he was aware that those were the two cultivation stages right above the Ascendant Immortal stage.
Above the Ascendant Immortal stage was the True Immortal stage. And above the True Immortal stage was the Heavenly Immortal stage.
Looking at it from the perspective of a cultivator from Eternal World, cultivating up to the Ascendant Immortal stage was enough to let them ascend to the Immortal Plane. A True Immortal, on the other hand, could already be considered as a formidable expert in the Immortal Plane. A Heavenly Immortal, however, was practically a lord.
“My name is Pining Butterfly. Greetings to Senior Bi Qing. Earlier, when I was studying the grand dao of lightning, I encountered some difficulties. I hope that senior can give me some pointers.” Chen Feng had wanted to ask some more questions only for Immortal Pining Butterfly to first ask some questions about cultivation. Facing that situation, Chen Feng grew amused.
Bi Qing, on the other hand, smiled. He did not refuse her and began explaining the grand dao. Seeing that, Chen Feng shook his head and walked to the side. Bringing out the Lightning Bead, he then began cultivating himself.
