After the icy palace at the Heaven’s Emergence Tomb sank back into the ground, Trinity’s weather began to warm up. The snow melted and the sky cleared. The bright sun emerged from the clouds.
This was late spring and early summer so it should be sunny like this with the sun up high in the sky.
“Boom! Boom! Boom!” Alas, black clouds were billowing up there with a large python moving back and forth. There was an old man in black armor standing on its head.
There was also a winged golden lion that spanned several dozen meters flapping its wings and flying swiftly.
Murderous intents were everywhere since many experts were chasing Feng Feiyun.
“Three divine intents have just swept by me, they’re quite strong. At the very least, they’re half-step Giants.” Feng Feiyun and Wang Meng were hastily escaping towards Radiance. Even the naked eye could see the murderous intent surging on the horizon. Several monstrous auras made the legs of many go weak.
The cultivators inside Radiance were frightened. This scene was too stirring. Two disciples in white daoist robes were running towards Radiance while being pursued by several dozen masters.
“That’s the demon’s son. What did he do this time to have so many experts chase after him?” A young cultivator watched this scene play out while standing on top of a wall.
“You still don’t know? I heard he defeated a legendary character, Nalan Hongtao. This proved his supreme talents, so people want to kill him before he can spread his wings.”
“What? Even Nalan Hongtao at the same level isn’t his match? This demon’s son is something else then.”
There were many cultivators gathered at Radiance. Some were locals while others were refugees. Then there was the group that came from the great powers in order to excavate the icy palace at the tomb.
Everyone was scared by the scene. A black shadow several hundred meters tall emerged like a god and blotted out half of the sky. It chased after the two and randomly shot out a black ray, leaving huge pits on the ground.
“I know, that’s a half-step Giant from the Senluo Temple who has cultivated the ‘Evil Emperor Phantom’, one of the twelve evil techniques. He’s a monster of the heretical dao.”
“Damn, the demon’s son is actually causing half-step Giants to take action. Even the eight older historical geniuses haven’t managed to do this.”
“What can you do? Who told him to sleep with the prettiest girl, Lu Liwei, of the Tenth Hall? I heard she is related to Mount Potala. If the Tenth Hall can’t take his head, how are they going to answer to that character up there?”
An old man with pitch-black eyes and four wings was flying in the sky. His glare was as sharp as a hawk’s. His stare alone directly made Feiyun vomit blood.
Wang Meng was even sadder since his body broke in seven or eight different places. If it wasn’t for his powerful constitution, he would have fainted already.
“Motherfucker!” Feiyun picked Wang Meng up and increased the pace of his Swift Samsara. He turned into a gale and rushed towards Radiance.
“That’s the Evil Wings of the Nether Realm technique, also one of the twelve heretical arts. Someone has actually managed to cultivate four of them, it must be that half-step Giant from the Fourth Hall.”
“Indeed. Since Feiyun did that to Bai Ruxue, the upper echelons of the heretical schools must be pissed. They will try to eliminate him.”
“He just made it to Radiance!”
“There’s no escaping. He is king among the younger generation, but there is too big of a gap compared to half-step Giants. It doesn’t matter where he runs off to, he can’t escape this situation.”
The cultivators in Radiance all felt the bloodthirst, so they tried to run out of Radiance. However, they only made it to the gate before being stopped by Feiyun’s pursuers and could only go back and hide.
Dark clouds enveloped Radiance alongside the howls of strange beasts and flying rays.
The ten halls weren’t the only ones chasing Feiyun. There was also the Violetsea Corpse Cave, experts from the Beiming Clan, and a few other great powers.
Some have begun to create formations to seal off Radiance completely, turning it into a prison to catch their prey.
“This demon’s son is a fool. Why is he running here? It’s the same as going headfirst into a prison. He won’t be able to escape even if he had wings.” A disciple from the Violetsea Cave sneered.
A lord from the Senluo Temple stated: “Even if we have to refine all of Radiance, we must eliminate the demon’s son. Such a character cannot be allowed to mature. He’s too big of a threat.”
So many masters were here just to kill a grand achievement God Base — this might be an unprecedented event in history. Even if Feiyun were to die to them today, he would still become famous.
They weren’t in a rush to enter Radiance and planned to carve down their formations first. After sealing all possible escape routes, they would take their time finding Feiyun.
He was dead for sure, so there was no need to hurry.
“These bastards are so ruthless. If they fall into my hands later, I’ll blow their heads open with my fist.” Wang Meng’s face was stained with blood as he angrily stared at the sky above. He could see the sneers up in the clouds.
The initially lively city was now empty and void of sound. One could still see the lamps hanging on the eaves while noisily fluttering in the wind. There were footsteps as well!
Feiyun suddenly stopped right outside of the Yin Gou Ward.
The building was still majestic and as grand as before. However, it was completely different now. The golden gates have been taken down. The jade tiles on both the ground and roofs were taken away as well. Not even one piece was left.
“Haha, this Dongfang Yiye is something else. He predicted that this would happen to Radiance so he moved the ward away. Anything worth something has been taken away by now.” Feiyun squatted down and saw that even the door nails were dug out. Only the shabby stone walls were left.
“That’s a businessman for you, completely thorough. It makes sense why the Yin Gou Clan is so rich.” He sighed emotionally after saying this.
“Uncle, why do you care about the clan right now?!” Wang Meng was very worried: “We need to live through tonight before thinking about anything else.”
Feng Feiyun wasn’t in a rush. He stood up and smiled: “Wang Meng, do you fear death?”
He replied: “No. Dying together with you is not regretful at all!”
Feiyun smiled back: “You might not be afraid, but I am! Come! I’ll take you to this place.”
A grand formation had been erected around Radiance with several top experts presiding over it. It looked like a black dome that had wrapped up all of Radiance.
Several rays of light entered the formation and into Radiance.
These were the top young geniuses. They have come to kill Feng Feiyun so that the great powers would have an excuse to tell the Divine King.
Of course, if they failed to do so, the older generation would then ignore the rule.
The black clouds in the sky descended. Radiance has fallen into darkness and the streets were completely empty. Some lamps were scattered around the city, making it look like a ghost town.
“Clatter.” Two pairs of footsteps could be heard from an old street.
Feiyun, in his white daoist robe, gallantly walked ahead before stopping at a dark station.
This station seemed particularly old and its gate was left open. A plaque could be found above the entrance. It was covered in webs and had a talisman on it, but the words “The Dead is Grand” could still be seen.
“Uncle, where the hell is this place? Why do I feel that I have fallen into an ice cave? This is a chill similar to the one in the netherworld.” Before entering the station, Wang Meng felt his scalp tingle.
Strange noises came from the station as fiery wisps flew up and down. It was quite a creepy sight.
Feng Feiyun swallowed a mouthful of saliva. He didn’t want to come to this place, but the enemy was too powerful. This was the only way to survive.
Feiyun didn’t have this feeling the last time he was here with the Evil Woman, but he felt the same sensation as Wang Meng this time around.
“Come, we’ll lure the tiger out to deal with the wolves.” Feiyun wasn’t certain at all. Finding the Evil Woman was his very last resort, but if he wanted to live through tonight, he could only rely on her power at Trinity.
There were coffins scattered everywhere inside this station. There must have been several dozen coffins, resulting in an eerie atmosphere.
A cold energy surrounded each coffin while some nether flames shot out from inside.
“Uncle, why do I feel that the dead people inside these coffins could crawl out at any moment?” Wang Meng felt his legs giving way and almost couldn’t walk.
“You’re not afraid of death, so why are you afraid of the dead?” Feiyun mocked him.
“Oh god, this place is even scarier than dying… Oh mother, there’s someone there!” He shivered and pointed at the corner of the courtyard before squatting on the ground.
It was a third transformation evil corpse who has been tasked with watching the station. He was decrepit and withered like a dried branch. His hair was completely white as he was sweeping the ground with a broom.
His old eyes deep inside his eye sockets glanced over and exuded a thick evil aura.
