Chapter 1870: w.a.n.g Zhuo's Death
Very quickly, everybody learned about those people's deaths, and were astonished. They had all paid attention to what the others had been doing, they were wondering who had killed the strong cultivators from Taishan City.
Everybody started investigating. Who had killed those people?
Two people appeared in the mountains where Lin Feng was. One of them was w.a.n.g Zhuo, the other one was the other survivor who had managed to escape with him.
They were astonished when they saw what had happened.
"Lin Feng!" w.a.n.g Zhuo looked at him strangely. There were green trees everywhere and there was only one person here… Lin Feng!
"How come it's you?" w.a.n.g Zhuo asked as he landed on the mountain.
Lin Feng opened his eyes and looked at w.a.n.g Zhuo, "I'm here, do I need to have a reason to be here?"
w.a.n.g Zhuo was surprised. Lin Feng was alone there?
"Have you seen those who killed the strong cultivators from Taishan City?" w.a.n.g Zhuo asked Lin Feng.
Lin Feng shook his head, "I haven't." He couldn't have seen them, because he had killed them.
"Are you hiding here?" w.a.n.g Zhuo asked icily.
Lin Feng looked back at him coldly. "Mind your own business, will you?" w.a.n.g Zhuo had p.i.s.sed him off those days. Because of his poor tactical skills, everyone from Great Imperial Song City had died. Luckily, Lin Feng had left straight from the beginning.
Yes, Lin Feng dared look at him coldly. w.a.n.g Zhuo didn't smile, he was furious.
"Lin Feng, you escaped, you abandoned us, the people from Great Imperial Song City!" accused w.a.n.g Zhuo, staring at Lin Feng.
Lin Feng stood up. He was furious too, and said to w.a.n.g Zhuo, "You want to kill me?"
"How do you know?" shot back w.a.n.g Zhuo icily. He slowly walked over to Lin Feng and said, "I'm just picking up bodies. Minister Uptala won't say anything. Besides, he won't even know you died."
"The way you think is not bad," said Lin Feng. He looked at the other and said, "There's a witness though. Are you going to kill us both?"
"Don't worry about that. He's with me," said w.a.n.g Zhuo, releasing his Qi.
"Do you want to know who killed the people from Taishan City?" Lin Feng asked w.a.n.g Zhuo mockingly.
"You know?" asked w.a.n.g Zhuo, staring at Lin Feng. Lin Feng nodded.
"Who?" asked w.a.n.g Zhuo. He was surprised.
Lin Feng walked towards him and death marks appeared everywhere, then a deployment pattern appeared. Life Qi turned into death Qi. The atmosphere became dark.
w.a.n.g Zhuo's expression changed drastically. He saw the illusion and turned deathly pale. That was a powerful death strength!
He looked at Lin Feng. Lin Feng said grimly, "It was me!"
Then, death energies started converging, and surrounded w.a.n.g Zhuo. w.a.n.g Zhuo stared at Lin Feng. His body turned black. "No…"
However, it was already too late. Death Qi surrounded him as well as the other man. They both turned into corpses.
Lin Feng looked at them emotionlessly. In his hands, two black flames appeared. He threw the two fireb.a.l.l.s at the corpses and burned them to ashes. He also took their weapons. w.a.n.g Zhuo had an extraordinary social status and had been strong, he had incredible treasures.
However, at that moment, Lin Feng raised his head and gazed into the distance. He saw someone, but that person seemed blind, as if he hadn't seen Lin Feng. However, Lin Feng sensed a cold presence.
Jian Mang, he's here too!, thought Lin Feng. When they had come to the small world, Lin Feng hadn't seen Jian Mang. But now he was there and it seemed that he had sensed that w.a.n.g Zhuo and the other man had been killed. Even though Jian Mang couldn't see much, with his G.o.dly awareness, he could still inspect the area.
"You want to kill me so that I don't say anything?" said Jian Mang calmly. w.a.n.g Zhuo had an incredible social status, and Lin Feng had killed him in one strike with his deployment spell. If people in Great Imperial Song City learned about this, Lin Feng would be doomed.
"Your deployment spells are powerful, I won't go in. If you come out of the deployment spell, I will kill you," said Jian Mang said slowly.
"And so?" said Lin Feng.
"Of course, he wasn't my friend. He died and it has nothing to do with me. I don't care. However, I still want to win the war for Great Imperial Song City." said Jian Mang. Lin Feng recalled his energies. Jian Mang didn't know w.a.n.g Zhuo and didn't care about him. They weren't friends. And Lin Feng and Jian Mang weren't enemies.
"You mean you want us to join hands?" asked Lin Feng.
"Indeed. Even though I'm quite strong, our enemies haven't lost many people. I can't kill them on my own. With my strength and your deployment spells, things would be different. Even if we are the last two ones, we have hope," said Jian Mang straightforwardly. He wanted to win the war!
"What would that bring to us?" said Lin Feng.
"It would prove how strong I am," said Jian Mang.
Lin Feng smiled and nodded, "Alright, we can cooperate. But I'm not going to look for them. They can come. If they don't come, then we'll wait until the last day."
"I don't mind," agreed Jian Mang calmly.
Lin Feng sat down cross-legged and closed his eyes. He began studying evolution energy, making his life and death energies evolve. He started moving his hands, and another pattern appeared indistinctly.
Lin Feng kept drawing life and death energies. He was casting another deployment spell.
However, what he didn't know was that at that moment, in a luxurious building in Great Imperial Song City, someone was furious and their Qi was raging to the skies. That was w.a.n.g Zhuo's father, w.a.n.g Xiao!
w.a.n.g Zhuo was talented, and relying on himself, he had won a hundred battles for Great Imperial Song City. He was extremely talented, had traveled a lot, and had many precious items. His future was supposed to be bright. However, he was dead now!
"Who killed my son!?" shouted w.a.n.g Xiao furiously. He had done his best to raise w.a.n.g Zhuo, his only son. His dream in life was to see his son surpa.s.s him. Now he was dead!
"w.a.n.g Zhen, Minister Kalasutra, Minister Uptala, you're really cruel!" shouted w.a.n.g Xiao furiously, before leaving his home in a rage.
PMG Chapter 1871
Chapter 1871: Defeat
w.a.n.g Xiao started flying towards the small world Ling Feng was located in. He immediately broke the seal and entered.
People from the five influential groups guarded the entrance. When they saw w.a.n.g Xiao, they were stupefied. Someone said, "Master, we sealed the area because the battles have already started. You're violating the rules so Great Imperial Song City is violating the rules."
When he said that, the others looked at the guards of Great Imperial Song City.
"Minister w.a.n.g Xiao, indeed, those are the rules. During the battle, n.o.body can come here and disturb them," said the strong cultivator from Great Imperial Song City while bowing respectfully.
"I just came to watch. I'm not going to get involved!" said w.a.n.g Xiao. He suddenly started flying again, ignoring everybody else. n.o.body dared to stop him.
The other people's eyes glittered. This man from Great Imperial Song City was extremely strong, but they weren't convinced he wasn't going to get involved. Otherwise, the strong cultivators of the other groups would join hands and attack him together.
Very quickly, w.a.n.g Xiao found a palace. That palace was the place Minister Kalasutra and the others were guarding. Minister Kalasutra sensed a powerful Qi approaching and rose up into the air. When he saw w.a.n.g Xiao, he was astonished and looked at him strangely. "w.a.n.g Xiao, what are you doing here?" he asked.
"My son came here with you to conquer this territory, and now he's dead. You're a Minister and you're surprisingly asking me what I'm doing here?" replied w.a.n.g Xiao icily, staring at Minister Kalasutra. He sounded very angry.
"w.a.n.g Zhuo is dead?" Minister Kalasutra was astonished, he couldn't believe it. He knew how strong w.a.n.g Zhuo was. He was extremely strong and very smart. He also had many precious treasures. Killing him wouldn't be easy!
"You didn't even know!?" shouted w.a.n.g Xiao furiously. Powerful lights glittered in his eyes.
When Minister Kalasutra saw w.a.n.g Xiao's expression, he frowned and said, "w.a.n.g Xiao, I'm very sad and sorry for your loss. w.a.n.g Zhuo was a real genius. But war is war! We're in a territory that we're trying to conquer. Death is inevitable!"
"My son!" shouted w.a.n.g Xiao, bursting out in anger. His voice carried explosive energies that made the sky churn.
"Young men of Great Imperial Song City will die here. n.o.body can be sure they won't die! Your son, w.a.n.g Zhuo, came here to conquer the territory, who could guarantee he wasn't going to die? He was just too weak! How can you blame anyone?" said Minister Kalasutra, getting angry now. He wasn't polite anymore, and his tone of speech was ice-cold. h.e.l.l was a cruel place, n.o.body could guarantee anyone's safety!
"If you wanted to be sure your son was never going to die, why did you make him practice cultivation?" pressed Minister Kalasutra icily. "w.a.n.g Xiao, you're a Minister. You're also in charge of wars to conquer territories! Now, leave! You cannot get involved here!"
"Kalasutra!" w.a.n.g Xiao glared at the Minister with murder in his eyes.
"p.i.s.s off! If you have anything to complain about, go to Great Emperor Song to report me!" shot back Minister Kalasutra. He wasn't a weakling. He was strong and aggressive, the atmosphere around him darkened abruptly.
"Very good, Kalasutra!" said w.a.n.g Xiao icily. Then, he turned around and left, saying over his shoulder, "When you come out, if you haven't conquered this place, I will come and find you!"
Minister Kalasutra didn't care about what w.a.n.g Xiao said. Even though w.a.n.g Xiao was a descendant of Great Emperor Song, there were rules. Great Emperor Song was one of the Ten Yama Courts' kings. Many Ministers were under his orders. He couldn't get angry because some of his family members had died. The cultivation world was about life and death, strength and weakness. Even the strongest cultivators in the world could die sometimes.
"w.a.n.g Zhuo is dead, surprisingly," whispered Minister Kalasutra. He was surprised, too. w.a.n.g Zhuo was extremely strong and surprisingly, someone had still managed to kill him. No wonder Minister w.a.n.g Xiao was furious. Who had killed w.a.n.g Zhuo?
In the distance, a few people arrived. Among them, there were two beautiful women: Qing Qing and Qin Yao!
"Dad, who dared act that arrogantly?" Qin Yao asked Minister Kalasutra. She had easily heard the two extremely loud voices.
"w.a.n.g Xiao. w.a.n.g Zhuo has been killed. He came to ask for explanations," said Minister Kalasutra dismissively. Qin Yao and Qing Qing were astonished. w.a.n.g Zhuo had been killed?!
"What's wrong with you?" Minister Kalasutra asked the two girls.
"We lost the low-level h.e.l.l emperors' battle. The enemies made an alliance with the local people. Among them there were a few terrifyingly strong medium-level h.e.l.l emperors. And it doesn't count as a violation of the rules, because those people don't belong to any kind of powerful group. If local people attacked us, they can say they did it willingly. Their own medium-level h.e.l.l emperors haven't gotten involved, obviously," said Qin Yao unhappily. Their opponents had clearly set the rules to suit themselves.
"w.a.n.g Zhuo has been killed too, so the medium-level h.e.l.l emperors' war must be lost as well," said Qing Qing, her eyes glittering. She felt sad too. w.a.n.g Zhuo had been really strong for a medium-level h.e.l.l emperor. He was one of their strongest a.s.sets, a great loss. They had definitely lost the war. She wondered how Lin Feng was doing.
"Indeed, it's quite possible. The high-level h.e.l.l emperors lost first, so we may have really lost," sighed Minister Kalasutra sadly. He had seen the high-level h.e.l.l emperors' battle, they had been destroyed very quickly. Very few people remained alive.
"Our enemies were ready. Losing isn't a surprise," observed Qin Yao.
"Right, they all plotted against us and joined hands, Now, let's just watch and stop fighting. We can wait for the end of the war. We can see if we can compete again at some point. But if not, we can give up," said someone else. Qing Qing and Qin Yao both nodded, annoyed. It was a tragedy for Great Imperial Song City!
There were fewer and fewer people on all the battlefields. However, the battles were also more and more deadly.
However, all of that seemed to have nothing to do with Lin Feng. During those days, he walked in the mountains, he went to villages and cities. He saw many people, some of them lucky, some of them suffering. Some faced death, some lived. Lin Feng forgot about his own self, he led his life as an ordinary person and watched life go by.
A month later, Lin Feng looked like someone who had suffered a lot in life. His clothes were ragged. He looked worn down and quiet, like an ordinary person. He laid down in the gra.s.s, put a wisp of straw in his mouth and nibbled it. Time pa.s.sed slowly as he looked up at the blue sky.
After understanding the path of life and death, Lin Feng understood that he couldn't just practice cultivation really hard all the time. He couldn't kill people unceasingly, either. Sometimes, it was important to relax and get back to nature. The world was beautiful, and that in itself was beneficial.
However, in the cultivation world, it was impossible to remain calm and serene all the time. At that moment, a powerful thread of Qi appeared in the sky and oppressed the whole region.
Lin Feng looked up at the energy. Some powerful lights had appeared in the sky, and a white bolt of lightning descended from the sky.
A strong wind started blowing as someone landed next to Lin Feng. Lin Feng looked at him nonchalantly and said, "You're blind, but you can find people so easily."
Jian Mang kept finding him everywhere and easily.
"It's starting. Everybody is gathering. Let's go!" said Jian Mang. He was efficient and didn't waste time.
PMG Chapter 1872
Chapter 1872: Two People
The forces gathered. The five h.e.l.l great emperors looked at the crowd from the sky.
The number of people of the five groups wasn't h.o.m.ogenous, though. For example, it seemed that there was almost n.o.body left from Great Imperial Song City and Taishan City.
Minister Uptala looked calm and serene even though there were very few people left from Great Imperial Song City. War was about death, too. Battles to conquer territories could only be cruel. The strongest ones survived, the weakest ones died. That was their destiny and he couldn't do anything about it.
"Who joined hands to kill my people?" demanded the h.e.l.l great emperor of Taishan City. They had already lost ! He wanted to know who had killed their people!
"If it was you, just say it!" shouted a subordinate of the the Taishan h.e.l.l great emperor.
"We didn't do anything!" replied the strong cultivator of Chu Jiang City indifferently. The others remained silent. The strong cultivator of Taishan City frowned. How strange! How could his warriors have disappeared just like that?
"Many strong cultivators came here. Chu Jiang City lost the least amount of people. They've won," said the high-level h.e.l.l emperor of Qinguang City. They had seemingly won the battle of the high-level h.e.l.l emperors.
"I agree," said the h.e.l.l great emperor of Taishan City indifferently. They completely ignored Great Imperial Song City, who had n.o.body left anymore. Then, they looked at the h.e.l.l great emperor of Pingdeng City.
"I agree too," said the h.e.l.l great emperor of Pingdeng City.
The strong cultivator of Chu Jiang City smiled, "So we won! Great!"
However, at that moment, two people arrived in a flash of light. The crowd turned around and saw a blind man and a low-level emperor.
"Great Imperial Song City refuses to surrender!" said the blind man. The crowd was astonished. These two people?
Minister Uptala looked at Jian Mang and Lin Feng strangely. Some mysterious things happened sometimes. Jian Mang and Lin Feng had both won a hundred victories at the same time in the city, they had also defeated nine other champions, and now they were here together. They were the last survivors of Great Imperial Song City!
"Lin Feng, where are the others?" asked Minister Uptala to Lin Feng.
"All the other groups had already plotted together against us, so when we arrived, they were attacked. However, I decided to go away before that, so I didn't see them. Then, I b.u.mped into Jian Mang. I don't know about the others," said Lin Feng calmly. Minister Uptala nodded. Wars were cruel. Great Imperial Song City had lost many people!
"Minister Uptala, does Great Imperial Song City accept the result or not?" asked the strong cultivator of Chu Jiang City smiling coldly.
Minister Uptala didn't reply. He looked at Lin Feng and Jian Mang. He knew they were incredible warriors. However, Chu Jiang City still had so many people and Lin Feng had just become a medium-level h.e.l.l emperor. Only Jian Mang could easily defeat other medium-level h.e.l.l emperors.
"We don't!" stated Jian Mang.
"If you don't, then you have to battle to the death. Are you sure?" asked the h.e.l.l great emperor of Chu Jiang City smiling coldly. They still had sixteen medium-level h.e.l.l emperors, two people couldn't do anything against them, they were just acting recklessly!
Minister Uptala said, "Jian Mang, Lin Feng, are you sure?"
"Minister, we want to fight!" said Lin Feng, nodding at Minister Uptala.
When he saw how proud and self-confident they looked, he was surprised but smiled, "Alright, since you want to fight, I support you two. Great Imperial Song City doesn't accept the result and wants to continue battling!"
"How brave!" said the h.e.l.l great emperor of Chu Jiang City smiling coldly. He waved his hands and said, "Everybody, battle to death."
The members of the other groups moved back. Minister Uptala looked at Lin Feng and nodded. Apart from the strong cultivators of Chu Jiang City and Lin Feng and Jian Mang, n.o.body was left. Everybody else had moved back and wanted to watch the battle.
"You cast deployment spells, I kill," said Jian Mang to Lin Feng. Lin Feng nodded his agreement. He landed on the ground and marks started appearing everywhere. Lin Feng was carved deployment marks at incredible speed.
"Deployment spells?" Minister Uptala was astonished. Lin Feng understood deployment spells?
Lin Feng released wind cosmic energies around his body to move even faster. His deployment marks were dazzling. The strong cultivators of Chu Jiang City were shocked.
Those two dared fight, they had a reason: deployment spells!
"Kill him first and prevent him from casting a deployment spell!" ordered someone icily. Deployment spells could be terrifying!
"Use a death spell and kill him instantly!" shouted someone icily, releasing death cosmic energies which surrounded Lin Feng. However, Lin Feng merely released life cosmic energies to counter them.
Life cosmic energies? Life cosmic energies can oppress death energy!, thought the strong cultivators of Chu Jiang City, who had all started releasing death cosmic energies at the same time. Their death cosmic energies were truly powerful, they could have killed a strong cultivator easily, but when those energies crashed onto Lin Feng's body, they turned into life cosmic energy. Green lights of vitality started appearing around Lin Feng!
How is that possible?, thought the amazed Chi Jian combatants. They didn't understand what was going on. Lin Feng didn't stop moving and carving out dazzling marks. Demon and earth cosmic energies rose up into the air. A destructive strength oppressed the whole battlefield.
A h.e.l.lish spear streaked across the sky towards Lin Feng, carrying pure death intent. The air darkened as it sped forwards.
Lin Feng smiled icily, as his Tian Ji Sword spat out all sorts of cosmic energies and collided with the spear, shattering it instantly.
Dozens and dozens of punches appeared in the air, and death strength rose to the skies. Their goal was simple: destroy Lin Feng and Jian Mang with an endless amount of death strength!
"The Circle of Life!" said Lin Feng. His life cosmic energy turned into a vortex and absorbed everything around, the incoming death strength kept turning into life strength. Lin Feng opened his mouth and swallowed all the energy before all their eyes.
Jian Mang didn't waste time, either. He moved like a lightning sword, his sword energies slas.h.i.+ng at someone's eyes.
Jian Mang was punched by an opponent and coughed up blood and was forced backwards. Jian Mang's sword attacks were strange, they didn't look powerful but they were deadly.
"Kill the one who's carving the deployment marks!" shouted a cultivator furiously. Many people attacked at the same time, using all sorts of other cosmic energies to surround Lin Feng.
Lin Feng stepped away, and dazzling deployment marks started flas.h.i.+ng and rising to the skies, colliding with all the energies. Their interplay blotted out the sky. Lin Feng's life energies had turned into a powerful vortex, forming a giant life and death pattern.
His life and death energies have become one. His life energies heal him and he uses his death energies to attack!, thought Minister Uptala, pleasantly astonished. Lin Feng understood life and death energies so well already. At the same time, he could even cast deployment spells! Minister Uptala was getting more and more impressed every day!
The gigantic pattern dashed to the skies, and suddenly many people fell down from the air.
Jian Mang continued moving around at lightning speed. His sword lights were dazzling. Horrible shrieks kept sounding out and many people's eyes started bleeding.
"What a fast sword, his sword moves like lightning!" The crowd was shaken. These two people were terrifying. Who knew there were such cultivators in Great Imperial Song City!
PMG Chapter 1873
Chapter 1873: You're The Only Real Loser!
Minister Uptala was shocked and amazed by Lin Feng and Jian Mang's strength. He murmured to himself, "It's not a strange kind of cosmic energy, it's light cosmic energy!"
There was an infinite number of cosmic energies, but the most common ones weren't numerous, and were usually related to the five elements. However, some people also used powerful and strange cosmic energies, as was usually the case of some people from animal clans or people who had king body types. They could use strange and mysterious cosmic energies because they had inherited them.
Some cosmic energies were related to the elements. For example, a Golden Crow's fire energy was an ameliorated version of sun energy.
Some very talented people understood decay cosmic energy, and when reaching enlightenment, those people could control time.
Some incredible people could also control light cosmic energy. Light cosmic energy granted a cultivator speed and could also make people go blind. Coupled with sword techniques, their attacks could be terrifyingly powerful.
He didn't even use his full strength on the battle stage, otherwise he would have been able to defeat six people at the same time too!, thought Minister Uptala, watching Jian Mang.
Life, death, light, and sword cosmic energies had filled the air, and coupled with the shattering deployment spell, half of the strong cultivators of Chu Jiang City had already been killed. When all the energies dispersed, the crowd noticed that a dozen people had died, and three had gone blind. Two more were severely injured, one was lightly injured, and two were unharmed.
When the crowd saw all this, they were astonished. What a tragedy for the strong cultivators of Chu Jiang City! The strong cultivator of Chu Jiang City wanted to say something, but in the end he didn't. He was speechless.
Jian Mang continued moving. His attacks still looked simple, but they were deadly. The three blinded people died at the same time, his sword lights cutting through their souls and flesh.
The strong cultivators of Chu Jiang City were astonished, and had no time to react. Jian Mang's attacks were terrifying, they just realized how dangerous he was. However, the battle wasn't over yet.
"Imprison!" Lin Feng flashed away, waved his hands, and one of the injured cultivators from Chu Jiang City was caged. The Tian Ji Sword glittered, streaked across the sky towards him, piercing through his body and killing him.
"Wake up!" shouted the h.e.l.l great emperor of Chu Jiang City furiously. The atmosphere shook. Lin Feng and Jian Mang even trembled.
A Lotus sword streaked across the sky again and three more people from Chu Jiang City died. However, this time, they were killed by Minister Uptala!
"What are you doing?" shouted the h.e.l.l great emperor from Chu Jiang City furiously.
"You intervened, so I can intervene, too," replied Minister Uptala calmly. Then, he waved his hand and strength surrounded a strong cultivator from Chu Jiang City again. That person died instantly.
The crowd looked at the h.e.l.l great emperor from Chu Jiang City. He had indeed just violated the rules indeed by getting involved.
The medium-level h.e.l.l emperors of Chu Jiang City were being slaughtered. Lin Feng, Jian Mang, and Minister Uptala killed them all. Those people were all heroes from Chu Jiang City, and now they had all died. What a tragedy!
"Taishan City, Taiguang, Pingdeng City, they have all surrendered. Now, Chu Jiang City decided to fight against Great Imperial Song City, and Great Imperial Song City has won this battle. I don't think anyone has anything to say about this, right?" asked Minister Uptala. The h.e.l.l great emperors of Taishan City and the other cities nodded. Great Imperial Song City had two incredible cultivators, they couldn't say anything against them. They didn't care if all those strong cultivators from Chu Jiang City had died, it had nothing to do with them. They had just watched the battle happily. The Chu Jian h.e.l.l great emperor was probably furious at the people from Great Imperial Song City. It was even more amusing that way!
"I'm sure we'll meet again!" said the h.e.l.l great emperor of Chu Jiang City, glaring at Minister Uptala, Lin Feng, and Jian Mang icily. He turned around and left. He didn't need to stay there. They'd had hopes for this battlefield, they had already lost the two others. Now, they had nothing.
The cultivators of Taishan City left, too. They had also lost the three battles.
"Let's go!" said Minister Uptala quietly. A gigantic Blue Uptala Lotus appeared. Lin Feng and Jian Mang jumped aboard it, and they all left.
Now, the great emperors went to gather where the high-level emperors were fighting. The three groups gathered there.
w.a.n.g Zhen and Minister Kalasutra looked at Minister Uptala. w.a.n.g Zhen said, "I thought we'd lost, but why did you come back with two people?"
Minister Kalasutra stared at Jian Mang and Lin Feng. He only knew that w.a.n.g Zhuo had died, so he had thought they'd lost that battle. However, Minister Uptala had now told him they had won that battle using telepathy.
"Everybody else died fighting," said Minister Uptala. w.a.n.g Zhen was stunned, they had all died during the fighting?
"w.a.n.g Zhuo is dead too?" w.a.n.g Zhen was shocked and angry, w.a.n.g Zhuo and he were related by blood. They were Great Emperor Song's descendants! How could he explain this to w.a.n.g Xiao?
"Everybody died, including w.a.n.g Zhuo, then those two survivors won?" asked w.a.n.g Zhen. He couldn't believe it. Lin Feng had survived, w.a.n.g Zhuo had died, had Minister Uptala protected Lin Feng?
"He died a long time ago," said Minister Kalasutra. "w.a.n.g Xiao even came inside to ask what had happened. I made him go back. It's a war, not a game. w.a.n.g Zhuo died, that's part of war."
"w.a.n.g Xiao came here earlier?" w.a.n.g Zhen was startled, and pulled a long face. He looked at Minister Kalasutra. "Minister, you should have told me earlier."
w.a.n.g Zhuo had died! Even if they conquered the territory, w.a.n.g Xiao wouldn't forgive him!
Minister Kalasutra frowned. What did w.a.n.g Zhen think? That Great Emperor Song's descendants were superior to them, or what? They were Ministers, they were stronger than w.a.n.g Zhen, how could they report to him?
"And since w.a.n.g Zhuo died, how did you win the medium-level h.e.l.l emperors' battle?" asked w.a.n.g Zhen.
"I don't know how w.a.n.g Zhuo died. However, at the end of the three months, Lin Feng and Jian Mang decided to fight alone and defeated all the strong cultivators of Chu Jiang City. They won!" Minister Uptala informed them. w.a.n.g Zhen was astonished and stared at Lin Feng and Jian Mang.
"You defeated all the cultivators of Chu Jiang City?" w.a.n.g Zhen couldn't believe his eyes and asked, "Minister Uptala, you managed the battle there, and surprisingly you don't know how w.a.n.g Zhuo died?"
w.a.n.g Zhen glanced at Lin Feng and asked, "How did w.a.n.g Zhuo die?"
"w.a.n.g Zhuo did things his own way and died, why do you need to ask us, Master?" Lin Feng asked w.a.n.g Zhen.
"w.a.n.g Zhuo's death is a big problem, I need to understand!" said w.a.n.g Zhen. w.a.n.g Xiao was really strong, and w.a.n.g Zhuo was w.a.n.g Xiao's only son! They were supposed to help him conquer that territory, they needed to have a clear explanation. w.a.n.g Xiao had a bad temper, he would remember them!
"We risked our lives and now you just remember w.a.n.g Zhuo's death? Don't you know that Minister Uptala and Minister Kalasutra also lost many people?" Lin Feng asked indifferently. w.a.n.g Zhen looked furious. Minister Uptala and Minister Kalasutra thought the same way, but Lin Feng had dared say it out loud. w.a.n.g Zhen remained silent with difficulty.
"Your Excellencies, if you agree, you can join Qinguang City's army!" said the nearby h.e.l.l great emperor from Qinguang City to Lin Feng and Jian Mang. They had done so much for Great Imperial Song City, and now Great Imperial Song City's rulers seemed ungrateful. They were more than willing to accept such strong cultivators!
"w.a.n.g Zhen doesn't represent Great Imperial Song City. He just expresses his own opinion," said Minister Uptala at that moment. w.a.n.g Zhen was afraid of w.a.n.g Xiao, that was why he was acting this way.
"Kalasutra, I'm not partic.i.p.ating anymore, and you?" asked Minister Uptala.
Kalasutra turned around and waved dismissively, "We're retreating as well."
Minister Uptala nodded and looked at Lin Feng and Jian Mang, "Let's go, then."
A gigantic lotus reappeared, the few remaining people jumped onto it. Qing Qing, Lin Feng, and the others jumped onto the lotus and left without even glancing at w.a.n.g Zhen.
w.a.n.g Zhen pulled a long face. Minister Uptala and Minister Kalasutra had come to help, and without them, he couldn't do anything anymore.
He looked at the cultivators from Qinguang City and Pingdeng City, they looked back at him mockingly. His cheeks felt like they were burning. Surprisingly, everybody had let him down, and now he was the real loser!
PMG Chapter 1874
Chapter 1874: Uptala Army
Minister Uptala and Minister Kalasutra went back to the city. Many people knew about the war already. Not long before, w.a.n.g Zhuo had died in battle, w.a.n.g Xiao had gone insane and destroyed many buildings.
"Minister Uptala and Minister Kalasutra have suffered heavy casualties, things don't look good for them…" said some people when they saw the two Ministers come back. w.a.n.g Zhen had come back, too. He was furious. When the crowd saw how furious w.a.n.g Zhen looked, they understood that the war hadn't gone well at all.
Minister Kalasutra and Minister Uptala had gone to war for w.a.n.g Zhen, they were supposed to help him take over that territory. w.a.n.g Zhen would have become a Minister that way. However, he had lost!
After w.a.n.g Zhen came back, he immediately headed to the private district since he was a descendant of Great Emperor Song. Even people with privileges couldn't go there freely.
w.a.n.g Zhen looked glum. He went to a certain palace and waited outside, not daring to enter.
After a short time, an old man appeared. His hair was white and he had wrinkles everywhere, but still managed to look fearsome. He glanced at w.a.n.g Zhen indifferently.
"You lost?" said the old man gloomily. w.a.n.g Zhen lowered his head, "Monsignor, Minister Uptala and Minister Kalasutra are way too arrogant. They let w.a.n.g Zhuo die and in the end, we had an opportunity to conquer that place, but they didn't want to let me control it, so they abandoned me. They don't care about us Great Emperor Song descendants."
"In order to be a Minister in h.e.l.l, you need to be a man of virtue and honor. The Ministers, and especially Great Emperor Uptala, would never try to do anything to harm you. Minister Uptala even controls the strength of the ten thousand things of creation. He doesn't try to harm people on purpose. They would have never harmed w.a.n.g Zhuo, either. If you failed, it means you're not suitable to become a Minister. From now on, don't come here anymore," said the man calmly.
w.a.n.g Zhen started trembling violently, and his face turned deathly pale. He was in the central part of Great Imperial Song City, this place was the symbol of the city. From now on, he couldn't go there anymore, he perfectly understood what that meant!
"Monsignor!" protested w.a.n.g Zhen, trembling in fear.
"Go now," said the man, making a shooing motion nonchalantly. He turned around and headed back into the palace. w.a.n.g Zhen's heart was pounding violently. That old man was even more powerful than what the legends said about him.
He was the only one who could see Great Emperor Song. Seeing Great Emperor Song was extremely difficult even for Ministers!
Great Emperor Song was one of the Ten Yama Courts' kings, one of the ten great leaders of h.e.l.l. Even his descendants didn't know how strong he really was.
w.a.n.g Zhen left and far away, he sensed a cold energy surround him. He turned around and saw w.a.n.g Xiao.
"Brother w.a.n.g Xiao," w.a.n.g Zhen greeted him politely.
"Don't call me that," said w.a.n.g Xiao icily. "I'm asking you, who killed my son w.a.n.g Zhuo?"
w.a.n.g Zhen's expression changed drastically. How unlucky! What a tragedy, today was so horrible. He had to give w.a.n.g Xiao an explanation, but he didn't know how w.a.n.g Zhuo had died.
"Brother w.a.n.g Xiao, after we entered that territory, I asked Minister Uptala to take care of w.a.n.g Zhuo. However, later, they told me that he had been killed. I was furious at Minister Uptala and Minister Kalasutra. Then, they abandoned me and refused to continue helping me conquer the area, I was forced to leave the small world and came back alone," said w.a.n.g Zhen coldly. He was trying to blame everyone else for all those problems.
"What you mean is that you don't know how my son died?" asked w.a.n.g Xiao. An ice-cold Qi surrounded w.a.n.g Zhen.
"The battlefields were divided into three, one for low-level h.e.l.l emperors, one for medium-level h.e.l.l emperors and one for high-level h.e.l.l emperors. w.a.n.g Zhuo followed Minister Uptala to the medium-level h.e.l.l emperors' battlefield. Only medium-level h.e.l.l emperors could fight, so nothing should have happened to w.a.n.g Zhuo! I don't know what Minister Uptala did. You can go and check, Brother w.a.n.g Xiao."
"A bunch of nonsense!" shouted w.a.n.g Xiao furiously, "My son had my talisman! He could have made it explode to protect his life. Unless a h.e.l.l great emperor attacked him, he couldn't have died. How could he die on the medium-level h.e.l.l emperors' battlefield?"
"I also think it's strange," w.a.n.g Zhen agreed. He had already thought of that. If w.a.n.g Zhuo had faced danger, he would have broken the talisman or used a Great Imperial Weapon. However, he had been killed nonetheless.
"There's another possibility." said w.a.n.g Zhen suddenly as if he had thought of something.
"What possibility?" asked w.a.n.g Xiao.
"One of your people could have a.s.sa.s.sinated him!" proposed w.a.n.g Zhen icily. "Indeed, Minister Uptala came back alone with Lin Feng and Jian Mang. One of them is blind, the other one has just become a medium-level h.e.l.l emperor. How could they be strong enough to kill all those medium-level h.e.l.l emperors? How come they cooperated? Besides, Minister Uptala and Lin Feng are quite close, he takes care of Lin Feng. Lin Feng even went back to Minister Uptala's headquarters."
w.a.n.g Xiao frowned. His son had died, and the matter was very strange, so anything was possible.
"Lin Feng and Jian Mang were the only survivors. Brother w.a.n.g Xiao, you have an inspection technique, if you inspect their memories, you'll find out the truth," said w.a.n.g Zhen.
w.a.n.g Xiao seemed pensive. He couldn't do anything against Minister Uptala and Minister Kalasutra. Regarding Lin Feng and Jian Mang, he just needed an opportunity to attack them. After all, they were Minister Uptala's guests. He couldn't attack them openly.
However, his son w.a.n.g Zhuo had died. He had to try anything he could!
Lin Feng didn't know what w.a.n.g Xiao and w.a.n.g Zhen were talking about. He was in Minister Uptala's headquarters.
"Minister Uptala, we offended w.a.n.g Zhen. He's one of Great Emperor Song's descendants. Won't they cause trouble?" asked Lin Feng to Minister Uptala.
"We're in h.e.l.l. There are Ten Yama Courts. If we hold grudges against one another, then Great Imperial Song City will disappear. Lin Feng, you have to understand that strength is all that matters here," said Minister Uptala. Great Imperial Song City was one of the ten cities of h.e.l.l. Strength was all that mattered. Anyone who was strong enough was respected. Lin Feng was such a person.
"Minister, do kings inherit their position of Ten Yama Courts' king?" asked Lin Feng.
Minister Uptala looked at Lin Feng, smiled and shook his head, "Of course not. The position of Ten Yama Courts' king is obtained thanks to strength. If someone becomes a peerless cultivator and defeats Great Emperor Song, then they'll replace him. But n.o.body has tried to attack Great Emperor Song in thousands of years."
Lin Feng was stupefied. Great Emperor Song had been one of the Ten Yama Courts' kings for thousands of years? How strong!
"Of course, even though w.a.n.g Zhen doesn't attack strong people, maybe he will try and attack you. After all, you offended him too. You have to be careful," warned Minister Uptala. Lin Feng nodded, he knew that.
"Let's go, Lin Feng. I'm going to show you around the Uptala district!" said Minister Uptala, smiling at Lin Feng. He took Lin Feng to several different buildings. After a short time, they arrived in front of a lake, and went into the water. There was a door there, it looked like an illusion. They crossed it and ended up in a courtyard. There was a pattern under Lin Feng's feet.
Teleportation Deployment Spell!, thought Lin Feng looking at the marks of the pattern. The marks were Holy marks. After Minister Uptala conquered a territory, he had created a Teleportation Deployment Spell to go there easily.
"Let's go!" Minister Uptala and Lin Feng rose up into the air. After a short time, they appeared above a beautiful watery world. There were many waterfalls and rivers. Lin Feng gazed into the distance and saw people wearing Uptala armor. They were seated cross-legged and practicing cultivation. Some of them fought against one another to practice. Some others talked about cultivation. Those people were also extremely strong.
"Those people are the members of the Uptala army. They work together a lot. They can fight against one another to compare themselves, and they can talk about cultivation. I also make them travel sometimes. Of course, if they want to stay alone, they can too. They help me control this part of h.e.l.l. People who are talented can join my army," Minister Uptala explained to Lin Feng.
Lin Feng nodded. This army controlled a part of h.e.l.l!
PMG Chapter 1875
Chapter 1875: Challenge of the Celestial Country
"Minister!" greeted his army, bowing before Minister Uptala.
"Don't pay attention to me," said Minister Uptala calmly. The crowd then continued with what they were doing.
"Minister, I can sense Blue Uptala Lotus intent here, why?" Lin Feng asked him.
Minister Uptala smiled, "Rise higher up in the air and observe the region, you'll understand."
Lin Feng was surprised. He rose up into the air, piercing through some clouds, and looked down. That gigantic ice and watery world had the shape of a lotus. The mountains were gigantic petals!
"Blue Uptala Lotus!" Lin Feng was stunned.
He dropped back down to Minister Uptala. Minister Uptala smiled and said, "It was a flatland, so my father planted some Blue Uptala Lotus seeds here. It turned into a water and ice world. Many strong cultivators here practice h.e.l.lish ice cultivation, as my father did. I practice fire cultivation. So now many people here control fire, too.
"Everybody can practice what they want, everybody is the master of their own destiny. Everybody chooses different paths. You have already chosen the path of life and death. You understand life and death better than most people. Even though I can't influence people's destinies, at least, I can help them along," Minister Uptala said slowly.
Lin Feng nodded. Cultivators understood cosmic energies. Cosmic energies influenced a cultivator's life and what they could understand or study later. But nothing was fixed. Minister Uptala was telling Lin Feng: My path of the Uptala is my own path. I can help you, but I can't decide anything for you!
Lin Feng had been helped a great deal by Minister Uptala, without him he wouldn't have been cleansed by life-death cosmic energy.
"Minister, so when I observe the Blue Uptala Lotus, I can't borrow your ideas to make them turn into my own path?" asked Lin Feng.
"Of course you can, but you just use it, you don't apply everything. And anyway, powerful families emerge like that: their ancestors keep pa.s.sing things on to their descendants, and they become stronger and stronger if they do the right things," explained Minister Uptala. Lin Feng nodded. That was the role of a teacher.
"Besides, there's a strange rock in this world, called the Mark of the Path. It allows cultivators to understand the strength of enlightenment," Minister Uptala mentioned. Lin Feng had already been cleansed by the life-death dual energy. Even many great emperors weren't capable of achieving that!
It wasn't a criterion to become a great emperor at all. However, it was an advantage if a great emperor had undergone the process.
"Mark of the Path?" It was the first time Lin Feng heard about that strange thing.
"Indeed, the Mark of the Path! There are many sorts of Marks of the Path. The simplest ones are used by cultivators to mark their path inside. There are also Marks of the Path used by cultivators before dying. They don't die completely, they put their life in the stone and then it turns into their life path. Then, they can be used by their descendants. It's a very precious treasure and they are very rarely used. Some strong cultivators create such stones, but they have to know they're going to die to do that. The power of such a stone depends on the cultivator's comprehensive abilities during his life.
"There's another strange stone, the Stone of Fertility of the Earth and Sky. They are very precious. Different Marks of the Path have different values," said Minister Uptala slowly. Lin Feng calmly listened. His knowledge of cultivation was becoming deeper and deeper. There were all sorts of strength, matching the different sorts of Marks of the Path, those stones could help cultivators practice!
"Yue Xin has chosen the path of mercilessness. She started by practicing skills, and then she really started walking on the path of mercilessness?" Lin Feng mused to himself. He suddenly realized how mysterious the three lives scriptures were. With the three lives scriptures, a cultivator could choose different paths! How powerful!
With one body, there were many limits, and a cultivator could choose only one path to achieve enlightenment. With several bodies, it was easier to achieve enlightenment!
At that moment, someone rose up into the air and greeted Minister Uptala, "Minister!"
"s.h.i.+chuan, are you done selecting people?" Minister Uptala asked s.h.i.+chuan.
"More than fifty people are willing!" s.h.i.+chuan informed Minister Uptala.
Minister Uptala looked surprised and smiled, "So many people!"
"Yes, they are all heroes. I wonder how many people can survive?" agreed s.h.i.+chuan. Lin Feng was startled. Another dangerous event was going to happen?
"That's their decision. They can only rely on their own self," said Minister Uptala calmly, "Just tell them to be careful. Even if they obtain nothing, the most important thing is to survive, otherwise being a cultivator is useless."
"I understand!" nodded s.h.i.+chuan.
When Qing Qing heard Minister Uptala and s.h.i.+chuan's conversation, her beautiful eyes gleamed. s.h.i.+chuan looked at her and smiled, "Qing Qing, you're getting more and more beautiful. Are you not looking for a man?"
"s.h.i.+chuan, you're making fun of me. Men only think about cultivation, why say I'm beautiful each time you talk about me? Maybe someday I'll go to the Celestial Country too!" smiled Qing Qing. She knew s.h.i.+chuan quite well, he was her father's a.s.sistant, a Vice Minister. Every Minister in h.e.l.l had a Vice Minister.
"Qing Qing, I would be happy if you did. I don't think your father wants you to leave though!" grinned s.h.i.+chuan. In the cultivation world, women weren't as gifted as men, that was a fact. They didn't despise women, but women weren't as domineering on the path of cultivation. They weren't as cruel as men, either. Of course, many women were also stronger than many men. There were just far more strong men than strong women.
"If she's strong enough, she can go if she wishes," Minister Uptala agreed.
"Minister, who's this young man? I've never seen him before," asked s.h.i.+chuan, looking at Lin Feng. Even though Minister Uptala was humble and amiable, not many people could stand next to Minister Uptala like that. Minister Uptala probably liked this young man a great deal.
"I forgot to introduce you. This is Lin Feng. He's not a low-level h.e.l.l emperor, but he might be able to defeat high-level h.e.l.l emperors!" smiled Minister Uptala.
s.h.i.+chuan was surprised and asked, "He's not hiding his cultivation level?"
"Three months ago, he was on the battle stage outside of the city, on the battle stage of low-level h.e.l.l emperors. He attained a hundred non-stop victories, and then he defeated nine other champions, he even defeated six of them at the same time. And while he was fighting, he became a medium-level h.e.l.l emperor!" explained Minister Uptala, smiling as he recounted the past.
"He's barely been a medium-level h.e.l.l emperor and can already defeat high-level h.e.l.l emperors?" said s.h.i.+chuan. He couldn't believe it. How incredible!
"I took them to conquer a territory. The other cultivator who won a hundred battles was a medium-level h.e.l.l emperor. Together, they defeated sixteen medium-level h.e.l.l emperors from Chu Jiang City."
s.h.i.+chuan was amazed. Two people had defeated sixteen medium-level h.e.l.l emperors from Chu Jiang?
"And where is the other one?"
"He's alone having a walk."
"Alright," said s.h.i.+chuan with a nod. He looked at Lin Feng and said, "Little friend, when you become a high-level h.e.l.l emperor, I'll take you to the Celestial Country!"
"I was thinking the same. There are cultivators of different levels in the Celestial Country. There are many low-level h.e.l.l emperors and medium-level h.e.l.l emperors there, but it's still too dangerous for people who aren't high-level h.e.l.l emperors. When Lin Feng becomes a high-level h.e.l.l emperor, take him there. He'll benefit from it!" agreed Minister Uptala.
Lin Feng asked, "Minister, what is the Celestial Country?"
"The Celestial Country is a world created for geniuses. There are many extremely strong and heroic warriors there who constantly fight to become stronger. When people go there, they call it the 'Challenge of the Celestial Country'," explained Minister Uptala explained in simple words. Lin Feng's eyes lit up.
