MGA: Chapter 1877 – Purple Flames Blackmountain
Baili Xuankong and the others were immediately stunned upon hearing what Nangong Longjian said. This was especially true for the disciples of the Cyanwood Mountain. They simply did not dare to believe what they had just heard, and suspected that they might have misheard it.
Nangong Longjian, this Holy Land of Martialism's absolute expert, actually also wanted to be their Cyanwood Mountain's guest elder?
"Could it be that you are not willing?" Nangong Longjian asked with a smile. He who generally never smiled actually started to joke around.
"Willing, we're willing of course. Not to mention our Cyanwood Mountain, even the Three Palaces would be wild with joy should they be able to have you as their guest elder," Baili Xuankong was truly extremely excited. He who was extremely experienced with the world was actually speaking with a trembling voice right now.
This was not because Baili Xuankong's endurance was weak. Rather, it was because Nangong Longjian was simply too heavy of a matter. It was not only to him. Nangong Longjian possessed an extremely heavy weight about him to the entire Holy Land of Martialism.
"Since I've become the Cyanwood Mountain's guest elder, I am now part of the Cyanwood Mountain. If anyone dares to make the Cyanwood Mountain their enemy, they will have made me, Nangong Longjian, their enemy too. Regardless of who they might be, I, Nangong Longjian, will not let them get away with it," Nangong Longjian said.
"Your words are already sufficient," Hearing those words, Baili Xuankong was extremely overjoyed. Originally, he was feeling very sad to have personally killed Yin Chengkong. However, after all these people decided to make relations with their Cyanwood Mountain, the happiness that he felt had drowned his sadness.
"With all these grand experts having already become the Cyanwood Mountain's guest elders, senior Baili, might you be willing to accept me should I also be willing to become a guest elder of the Cyanwood Mountain?" Hong Qiang asked with a beaming smile.
"Brother Hong Qiang, what are you saying? If you are willing to become our Cyanwood Mountain's guest elder, it will definitely be our Cyanwood Mountain's fortune," Baili Xuankong said. Not only was Hong Qiang a Martial Emperor, the various things that he had done for Chu Feng had already caused Baili Xuankong to have a deep respect for him.
"If you really do not mind, I will return to the Cyanwood Mountain together with you. I hope that I will be able to use my power to help the Cyanwood Mountain," Hong Qiang said.
"Very well. Welcome, welcome. Hahaha," Baili Xuankong, Dugu Xingfeng and the others were all overjoyed.
Although a single Yin Chengkong had died, they had, in exchange, obtained many powerful experts as allies. In the future, not to mention the Nine Powers, even the Four Great Imperial Clans would not dare to look down on the Cyanwood Mountain. From this day on, the title of the strongest among the Nine Powers was destined to be the Cyanwood Mountain's.
At that moment, Chu Feng felt sour in his heart upon hearing Hong Qiang saying that he would return to the Cyanwood Mountain alongside Baili Xuankong.
Hong Qiang had accompanied Chu Feng closely to protect him. Now that he was unable to protect Chu Feng anymore and needed Chu Feng's protection instead, he most likely felt that it would be useless for him to accompany Chu Feng, and that he would become Chu Feng's burden. Thus, he had decided to leave.
When Chu Feng was weak and small, he had insisted on protecting Chu Feng with his life. Now that Chu Feng had became powerful, he immediately decided to leave so that he would not drag Chu Feng
This… was what a true friend was. This… was the behavior of someone who was truly concerned for Chu Feng.
"Chu Feng, guest elders, in that case, we shall take our leave," Baili Xuankong and Hong Qiang turned to leave.
The upper echelons of the Cyanwood Mountain like Dugu Xingfeng and the disciples like Jiang Furong also followed them.
Right at that moment, Chu Feng suddenly caught up to Jiang Furong and handed her a letter. He quietly said, "Senior sister Jiang, after you all have traveled far, please hand this letter to Ancestor."
"Okay," Jiang Furong nodded her head with a smile. She carefully put the letter Chu Feng handed her away.
Chu Feng stopped his footsteps and watched the figures of the people from the Cyanwood Mountain gradually disappearing into the distance. He was feeling very complicated.
When he had just arrived in the Holy Land of Martialism, not to mention the Cyanwood Mountain, even the Southern Cyanwood Forest was a huge monster to Chu Feng.
Yet, in a mere few years, Chu Feng had experienced a lot of things. The majority of them were related to the Cyanwood Mountain. The people that were extremely grand and powerful before were all surpassed by him. With the speed of his growth, Chu Feng had proved himself. Yet, he was feeling very depressed.
Chu Feng had to continue becoming stronger. This was a path that he had to take. However, as Chu Feng had decided to take this path, he was destined to gradually cast many of his friends, companions and benefactors far behind him. The path that he was taking was too difficult. For many of his companions, they were simply incapable of accompanying him.
Upon thinking of how the friends that he had shared trials and tribulations with were destined to be cast further and further behind by him in the future, Chu Feng felt very uncomfortable.
However, there was nothing that he could do about it. The path of a powerful expert was destined to be a lonely path.
After the people from the Cyanwood Mountain left, Yaojiao Guang led the King Monstrous Dragon Beasts and left too. At that moment, only Chu Feng, Nangong Longjian and the Compass Immortal remained.
"Senior Nangong Longjian, what is it that you want me to stay for?" Chu Feng suddenly asked.
It turned out that it was not Chu Feng that wanted to go and see Bai Ruochen. Rather, it was Nangong Longjian who had sent a voice transmission to him, telling him to stay. It was Nangong Longjian that had something he needed to tell Chu Feng.
At that moment, in addition to Chu Feng, the Compass Immortal also did not show any intention of leaving. Likely, Nangong Longjian had also sent him a voice transmission requesting that he stay.
"Two sirs, please follow me," Nangong Longjian's body shifted. Then, he began to travel at a very fast speed. At the same time, a gentle power covered Chu Feng and the Compass Immortal. That gentle power allowed the two of them to travel rapidly with Nangong Longjian. It turned out that Nangong Longjian was using his power to bring Chu Feng and the Compass Immortal with him.
The Cyanwood Mountain's crowd.
Baili Xuankong was still leading everyone and traveling back to the Cyanwood Mountain when suddenly, Jiang Furong approached him. She half kneeled in mid-air and presented a sealed letter to Baili Xuankong with her hands. She said, "Ancestor, this is what Chu Feng wanted me to hand to you."
"Oh?" Hearing the name 'Chu Feng', everyone's gazes turned to the letter. They all wanted to know exactly what Chu Feng wanted to tell Baili Xuankong in the letter. However, they did not speak their mind.
Baili Xuankong was also very curious. Thus, he accepted the letter from Jiang Furong.
Right after the letter entered his hand, it started to shine with light and actually began to change. In a blink of an eye, the letter in Baili Xuankong's hand disappeared, and was replaced with a Cosmos Sack.
Baili Xuankong inspected the Cosmos Sack. Immediately, his brows frowned slightly. That Cosmos Sack was filled with treasures, and even contained many Incomplete Imperial Armaments.
"Oh, that Chu Feng. He refused to accept my gift, and instead gave me a gift," Baili Xuankong shook his head. However, the frown on his face had been replaced with a smile.
Chu Feng already possessed the Heavenly Immortal Sword. Thus, these Incomplete Imperial Armaments and other treasures were truly useless to him. However, to the Cyanwood Mountain, they were extremely useful. Thus, Baili Xuankong calmly accepted the contents of the Cosmos Sack.
"Milord, exactly what was that?" Dugu Xingfeng and the others asked curiously.
"Look for yourselves," As Baili Xuankong said that, he waved his sleeve. Then, several rays of light shot out from his hand. They were the treasures in the Cosmos Sack. It was a dazzling lineup.
"Heavens?!" As the crowd saw the various treasures that were floating before them, not to mention the disciples of the younger generation, even Dugu Xingfeng and the others were gasping in admiration repeatedly. They were so shocked that their mouths were agape. After all, the items that had appeared before them were all priceless treasures.
After traveling for some time, Chu Feng, the Compass Immortal and Nangong Longjian arrived at a mountain range.
This mountain range was no ordinary mountain range. It was completely pitch black. Furthermore, there were purple gaseous flames soaring into the skies. Without even bothering to sense this place, one could tell with one's naked eyes that this was an extremely dangerous place. This place… simply resembled a ghost mountain.
"Purple Flames Blackmountain? This is a forbidden area," The Compass Immortal said as he looked to the borderless and frightening-looking mountains before them.
"That might be so. But it will not stop Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritists," Nangong Longjian said.
"Of course. Not to mention Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritists, this place will not be able to stop any Martial Emperor. Merely, other than possessing a frightening pressure, this place does not possess any treasure. Why did you bring us here?" The Compass Immortal asked curiously.
"What I needed is precisely the pressure of this place," Nangong Longjian smiled slightly. Then, he leapt into the Purple Flames Blackmountain.
Chu Feng and the Compass Immortal looked to one another. Then, they both leapt into the Purple Flames Blackmountain to follow Nangong Longjian. They wanted to know what Nangong Longjian's true intentions were.
MGA: Chapter 1878 – Meeting An Old Friend Again
Nangong Longjian led the way. He proceeded directly into the Purple Flames Blackmountain's deepest region.
Even though Chu Feng was a Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist, he was still able to sense an enormous pressure originating from deep underground. The further in they went, the stronger that pressure became.
Finally, Nangong Longjian stopped, descended to the ground and entered a cave.
Right after entering the cave, Chu Feng immediately smelled a special fragrance. Merely by this fragrance, Chu Feng was able to tell that someone was tempering their body with a special formation, herbal medicine and natural treasures.
Chu Feng hurriedly turned his gaze to the Compass Immortal. He discovered that the Compass Immortal was also looking at him. From his gaze, Chu Feng realized that the Compass Immortal had also noticed it.
"Senior Longjian, may I ask who it is that is tempering their body deep within the cave? Did you bring us here to bring us before that person?" Chu Feng asked.
"As expected of a Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist. Did you manage to deduce this merely by the smell of the medicinal herbs?" Nangong Longjian revealed an expression of admiration. If the Compass Immortal had determined this, he would not be surprised. However, Chu Feng, with his young age, was actually able to deduce this. This made him have no choice but to feel admiration for Chu Feng.
This meant that not only was Chu Feng a Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist in name, he also possessed the ability of a Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist.
"It is no wonder that Suyan and Ruochen were recommending you to me even though you were only a Snake Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist back then."
"Looking at it now, they have not recommended the wrong person," Nangong Longjian added.
"Could it be Ruochen?" Chu Feng asked.
"Yes, it's precisely my daughter, Bai Ruochen," Nangong Longjian nodded. Then, he said, "Go on in. Ruochen will tell you all about it after you see her."
Then, Nangong Longjian said to the Compass Immortal, "Compass Immortal, as for you… it's better that I tell you about it personally."
"Sure," The Compass Immortal smiled and nodded.
Chu Feng directly entered the cave. After he reached the deepest region of the cave, he passed through a world spirit wall. Then, what appeared before him was a spirit formation and two beautiful women.
One was an alluring and sexy married woman. The other was an exceptional beauty akin to a snow lotus blooming in a land of ice.
The two of them were Bai Ruochen and her mother, Bai Suyan.
It appeared that the two of them already knew that Chu Feng was coming. Thus, Bai Ruochen had not entered the formation to temper her body. Instead, she was standing there fully clothed.
At that moment, Chu Feng noticed that Bai Ruochen's cultivation had increased extremely quickly. She was already a rank three Half Martial Emperor now.
As for Bai Suyan, this woman who was previously so powerful that Chu Feng could not determine her cultivation, Chu Feng was now able to tell what her current cultivation was with a single glance.
Bai Suyan was a rank eight Half Martial Emperor. However, her cultivation of rank eight Half Martial Emperor was her current level of cultivation. Likely, when she was at the Cyanwood Mountain, she should have been a rank seven Half Martial Emperor.
That said, things were extremely different now. Not only had Chu Feng's cultivation surpassed Bai Suyan's, his true battle power was something that she could not possibly compare with.
Bai Ruochen was overjoyed to see Chu Feng. Her body leapt forward and arrived before Chu Feng. A sweet smile blossomed on her little ice-cold face. Bai Ruochen rarely ever smiled. However, when she did, it was extremely beautiful.
"Ruochen, senior Bai," Chu Feng was also extremely happy. After all, he was meeting his old friend again. As such, how could he not be in joy?
"Back when we hurriedly separated from one another at the Alliance Domain, you were only a disciple chased out by the Cyanwood Mountain. Yet now, you have become a very influential person in the Holy Land of Martialism."
"Tell me honestly. Were you really the one who released that frightening Asura Evil Spirit at the Nangong Imperial Clan?" Bai Suyan asked with a serious expression. Bai Ruochen was also looking to Chu Feng with a curious expression on her face.
"Mn," Chu Feng nodded.
"Oh you. You've truly surpassed my imagination," Bai Suyan began to inevitably recall the scene of Nangong Longjian fighting against that Asura Evil Spirit back then. Even though Nangong Longjian had managed to drive the Asura Evil Spirit away, he had been injured in the process.
"I, Bai Suyan, have not held many people in admiration throughout my lifetime. However, boy, you have truly won me over and made me admire you wholeheartedly," Bai Suyan exclaimed in admiration.
"Senior Bai, it seems that there are some hidden implications behind your words. By admiration, did you mean that positively or negatively?" Chu Feng said with a chuckle.
"You brat, of course it's positive. Why would I belittle you?" Bai Suyan ruthlessly smacked her palm on Chu Feng's head. However, Chu Feng continued to laugh foolishly.
While Bai Suyan's palm strike might seem to be extremely powerful, it didn't hurt Chu Feng in the slightest. This was not because Chu Feng possessed exceptional strength. Rather, it was because Bai Suyan was merely putting up an act, and did not put any strength into her strike at all.
"I was merely joking. I naturally know that senior Bai thinks only good of me. Else, how could senior Longjian go and save me?" Chu Feng said.
"He went to save you with his own objectives in mind," Bai Suyan said.
"Objectives? What objectives?" Chu Feng asked. Actually, Chu Feng had already guessed it. Merely, he did not know what Nangong Longjian's objective was.
"Ruochen, you go ahead and explain it to him," Bai Suyan smiled slightly. Then, she began to walk toward the exit. However, at the moment when she was about to pass through the spirit formation, she suddenly turned around and said, "Don't rush, the two of you can take your time to chat with one another. Having not seen one another for so long, there must be a lot of things you wish to tell one another."
"Oh, that's right. Chu Feng, while chatting is one thing, you must not start pawing around. While I, the mother, might not mind, you should be careful, or the father will beat you up." After saying those words, the smile on Bai Suyan's face grew even more enchanting. She truly looked fascinating and charming.
As her intoxicating laughter echoed in the cave, Bai Suyan left. At that moment, only Chu Feng and Bai Ruochen remained.
Suddenly, Chu Feng had an extremely serious expression on his face. He said to Bai Ruochen in a deadly earnest manner, "Ruochen, rest assured, I am not as your mother describes."
Hearing Chu Feng say those words in such a manner, Bai Ruochen was unable to contain herself, and actually burst into laughter. Her two beautiful eyes narrowed into two crescent moons. With her melodious laughter, she was truly charming. After laughing for a long while, Bai Ruochen cast a glance at Chu Feng and said, "You're still the same as before, not serious at all."
Then, Bai Ruochen began to describe the whole situation to Chu Feng.
It turned out that Nangong Longjian was also a world spiritist. Merely, he was wholly focused on martial cultivation. Thus, although his world spirit techniques weren't weak, they were greatly inferior to his martial cultivation. He was merely a Snake Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist.
Furthermore, although Nangong Longjian possessed outstanding talent, he suffered from an incurable disease. According to Bai Ruochen, Nangong Longjian would not be able to live for more than three more years.
However, Nangong Longjian did not wish to waste his cultivation. Thus, during this period of time, he had been trying to use taboo techniques to pass his cultivation to Bai Ruochen.
Back then, Bai Ruochen and her mother had left this place in accordance to Nangong Longjian's instructions. They had gone to search for the materials needed for Nangong Longjian to pass his cultivation to Bai Ruochen.
Furthermore, before Bai Ruochen and her mother left, Nangong Longjian explicitly told them that, regardless of what sort of methods they used, they must obtain the item which he wanted them to find.
Afterward, Bai Suyan discovered that item in the Ascension Sect. However, as Nangong Longjian was in closed-door training, and she was suspicious of other people, she had pretended to marry the Ascension Sect's Sect Master and searched for an opportunity to take that item away. And in the end… she had indeed been able to take that item away.
However, even though they had gathered all of the necessary items, with the strength of Nangong Longjian himself, it was impossible for him to pass his power on to Bai Ruochen. He needed the help of a Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist.
However, that Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist had to be someone that he could trust. That was why he was seeking the help of Chu Feng and the Compass Immortal.
Of course, the main purpose that Nangong Longjian had when he went to the Ximen Imperial Clan this time around was to save Chu Feng. As for the reason why Nangong Longjian had gone to save Chu Feng, it was because Bai Ruochen and her mother Bai Suyan had requested that he do so.
That said, no one had ever anticipated that Chu Feng would be a Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist when he appeared in the Ximen Imperial Clan.
"Chu Feng, you've really became a Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist?" After hearing Chu Feng's story, Bai Ruochen revealed an expression of disbelief.
"When have I ever deceived you?" Chu Feng opened his palm. Then, a strand of Dragon Mark spirit power began to float out from his palm.
"This is truly great," At that moment, Bai Ruochen was overjoyed. However, immediately after that, her expression changed. She grabbed onto chu Feng's hand and, with glistening tears in her eyes, said to Chu Feng, "Chu Feng, I beg of you, you must help me."
"Something like passing on one's power is truly not that simple. However, I will definitely give my all to help you," Chu Feng said.
"No, that's not what I'm talking about," Bai Ruochen shook her head repeatedly.
"Then what is it?" Chu Feng asked.
"I do not wish to obtain my father's cultivation. I want him to always be by my side. Chu Feng, I beg of you, please cure my father's illness," Bai Ruochen begged.
