Chapter 1573: Forbidden Area’s Lights
Lin Feng was convinced that there had to be some people already inside.
In the great world, there were many terrifyingly strong cultivators. If one of these extremely strong cultivators had managed to go inside, they probably wouldn’t talk about it to just anyone.
At that moment, some people arrived next to everyone and looked at Lin Feng, or more precisely, at his sword.
That sword had been into the forbidden area and had come back out. Even though it had only lasted a few seconds, they were still awed by it.
If they could get that sword, they would also be able to see what was inside the forbidden area.
Lin Feng sensed those greedy eyes looking at him.
“That sword seems useful after all.” said Lu Yao at that moment.
“Everybody, I only glanced at the entrance, and saw that there’s a terrifying destructive strength inside. My sword was almost destroyed inside, that’s why I brought it back as soon as I could. That sword is connected to my soul, and I’ve been raising it for a long time, so even if it’s in someone else’s hands, it’s useless.” Lin Feng explained to the crowd calmly.
Lin Feng’s message had the intended effect. When the crowd heard him, many of them forgot about it. Lin Feng was right, he had raised it, so it
would only listen to him.
“Anyone can control a weapon if they’re strong enough. Your cultivation level is low, and you can use the sword to get inside, so if a stronger cultivator used it and cleansed it, they’d be able to explore the forbidden area.” reasoned Lu Yao. Even though he sounded calm on the outside, on the inside, he was smiling coldly.
“My cultivation level is low? Are you implying is that your sword is more powerful than my sword?” said Lin Feng, glancing back at Lu Yao indifferently. Lin Feng didn’t usually care about his provocations, but this time, he was provoking everybody else against him.
Lu Yao looked at Lin Feng, his eyes gleaming with sword lights. In Sword Mountain, swords were equivalent to people’s lives. They loved swords more than anything else. Lin Feng had only broken through to the eighth Zun Qi layer and was from a small world, so Lu Yao didn’t fear him.
“Indeed, that’s exactly what I think.” said Lu Yao, emphasizing each of his words. Surprisingly, he was even releasing sharp energies, and condensing a sword.
“Slash, slash!” Lin Feng’s Tian Ji Sword was furious as it suddenly spat out thunderous energies.
The thunderous energies moved quickly, instilling some fear into Lu Yao. The lightning collided with Lu Yao’s sword lights and their energies exploded against each other. But even then, the Tian Ji Sword
Sword continued moving towards Lu Yao’s throat.
“Die!” shouted Lu Yao. He suddenly released sharp sword lights from his third eye while condensing a sharp sword with his godly awareness. He had no choice but to use his godly awareness at this point.
The Tian Ji Sword and his godly awareness collided. Lu Yao shook violently, it felt like his godly awareness was going to explode. Lu Yao thought that he was doomed. He hadn’t believed that Lin Feng’s sword could be that fast. He didn’t even have time to use his full strength!
However, Lu Yao realized that he was still alive. Lin Feng had recalled his Tian Ji Sword, which was now floating above his head.
Lin Feng didn’t kill him!
Lu Yao looked depressed as he recalled his godly awareness. He felt humiliated. He was a disciple from Sword Mountain, but he still lost to a nobody in a contest of swords.
“Brother Lu Yao, don’t fret, he just attacked you by surprise is all. In a real battle, you could have won.” said one of the young men in the group Lu Yao had joined.
He had already sacrificed his sword a moment before coming to Si Xiang City, if he hadn’t, he might have won.
“I guarantee you that if you hadn’t sacrificed your sword, the results would be the same. You wouldn’t even have an opportunity to unsheathe
to unsheathe your sword. Besides, you won’t have a second chance.” said Lin Feng calmly.
“Brother Lu Yao, if you’re not determined, you don’t deserve to be called a sword cultivator.” said the one next to him. Lu Yao’s looked horrified. If he backed down now, it would be a sign of weakness. After all, Lin Feng was weaker than him in cultivations, so there should be no reason for him to cower-away.
“Do you want to die?” said Lin Feng to the one who was provoking him. Lin Feng knew what that guy’s intentions were.
“If you want to die, come here.” said Lin Feng. He released cold sword energies which surrounded that person.
That person’s heart started racing. He also released terrifying energies.
That person’s Qi progressively weakened and finally disappeared. He ended up groaning from the effort. He had come for the great imperial palace, not to fight against this Lin Feng nobody.
“Let’s go.” said that person turning around and leaving. Lu Yao glanced at Lin Feng in a deep and meaningful way before he left. He wanted his godly awareness to stabilize before he fought against Lin Feng again.
People around them also left after that.
Then, Lin Feng returned his attention back to the entrance of the forbidden area.
“Let’s go.” said Lin Feng, going to another place.
Ruo Xie and the girl followed him. The girl
him. The girl thought that Lin Feng was rather mysterious. His dazzling sword was extremely powerful. If Lin Feng hadn’t controlled himself, he could have destroyed Lu Yao’s godly awareness and killed him.
A short time after, Lin Feng and the others travelled a few hundred meters away, still on the periphery of the forbidden area.
The Tian Ji Sword kept buzzing and shaking. It was surrounded by wind and empty space energies. It was also surrounded by thunders. It was getting ready to protect itself against the lights inside the forbidden area.
“Go in!” Lin Feng’s Tian Ji Sword penetrated the forbidden area again. His soul and his sword were connected so he could clearly sense everything his sword sensed. As before, there was only darkness inside, but there was also those star-like light projections. The destructive strength from before rose again.
“How come I have the impression that it is like a starry sky?” thought Lin Feng. His Tian Ji Sword rushed back, and he continued moving along.
It was always the same, no matter where Lin Feng probed. But during one of these probes, a shooting star passed by. With its appearance, there were more and more lights which contained destructive energies.
“What a terrifying strength!” thought Lin Feng shaking. He made his Tian Ji Sword come back and frowned. It seemed that with his strength, he basically couldn’t go into the forbidden area.
