Martial God Asura - Chapter 1920-1922
Chapter 1920 –Falling Into A Trap
"Those guys, what happened to them?" Xian Miaomiao had an astonished expression.
As for Chu Feng, he had a very serious expression. As a world spiritist, he naturally knew what was going on.
The people from the Dark Hall all possessed a self detonation power within them. As long as anyone tried to forcibly remove their masks, or should they say something that they shouldn't, they would trigger the self detonation and die from the explosion of their bodies.
Most importantly, even though Chu Feng had restricted their movements and that self detonation power using both his world spirit formation and his oppressive might, he was still powerless before that self detonation power.
This meant… that there was a world spiritist even more powerful than Chu Feng in the Dark Hall. Furthermore, that world spiritist was not only a little bit stronger than him.
"Chu Feng, what were they doing here?" At that moment, Xian Miaomiao walked toward Chu Feng with Lil Red in her hand.
As for Chu Feng, he began to carefully inspect their location. He wanted to find out exactly what sort of thing these fellows were trying to unseal with their unsealing formation that cost the lives of all the Royal Spirit Insects.
That said, even though Chu Feng was inspecting the surrounding area, he did not dare to use all of his strength to do so. The reason for that was because he knew that the Blood Devouring Killing Formation sealed Ancient Era's ferocious beasts. He was afraid that what was underneath this place would be the Ancient Era's ferocious beasts.
That was what came into Chu Feng's mind the first moment he saw that unsealing formation. He believed that the people from the Dark Hall were trying to release the Ancient Era's ferocious beasts.
"This is bad," After inspecting the place, Chu Feng's frown deepened. He then turned to Xian Miaomiao and asked, "Miaomiao, do you know exactly where the Ancient Era's ferocious beasts are sealed?"
"No, I don't," Xian Miaomiao shook her head. Then, she asked, "Chu Feng, what's going on?"
"Below this formation is another formation's core. If I am not mistaken, the spirit formation below us is related to the spirit formation that sealed the Ancient Era's ferocious beasts. The reason for that is because I am certain that the formation's core down below is that of a sealing formation."
"Thus, what you said is most likely true. There is indeed a frightening thing sealed here. It should be the Ancient Era's ferocious beasts."
"Merely, the formation's core is located too deep. I am unable to determine exactly where those Ancient Era's ferocious beasts are sealed."
"However, one thing is certain. Those people from the Dark Hall set up such a spirit formation here because they wanted to release whatever it is that is sealed in there," Chu Feng said.
"It must be the Ancient Era's ferocious beasts. This place must be where the Ancient Era's ferocious beasts are sealed. What do we do? They're actually this wicked."
"I will immediately return to report this matter to the others," Xian Miaomiao said.
"Report? Didn't you say that your Ancient Era's Elves have people guarding this place all the time?" Chu Feng asked.
"That is indeed the case. However, my royal father has moved many troops recently. As such, the strength of the guards here are much more inferior to before. If the Ancient Era's ferocious beasts are to be released at such a time, the Ancient Era's Elves stationed here will not be able to stop them," Xian Miaomiao said.
"Did your royal father transfer the troops for the sake of searching for the Dark Hall?" Chu Feng asked.
"Yes," Xian Miaomiao nodded.
"Crap, he fell for their trap," Chu Feng became alarmed. Evidently, the secret that the Ancient Era's Elves knew about was something that the Dark Hall knew too. All of this was deliberately done by the Dark Hall.
"This is bad, I must go and notify them right away," As Xian Miaomiao spoke, she prepared to leave.
"I'm afraid it's too late," Chu Feng grabbed Xian Miaomiao.
"Then… then what do we do?" Xian Miaomiao realized that if the people from the Dark Hall were truly prepared, it would truly be too late for her to return and notify the Elf Kingdom about this matter and then have them deploy their troops.
"Since it's too late, we must seize the moment and do what we should," Chu Feng said.
"You're saying that we should continue searching for the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers?" Xian Miaomiao asked.
"That's right. Else, we would've journeyed here in vain, no?" Chu Feng said.
"But the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers are too hard to find. Furthermore, with the people from the Dark Hall here, this place is now extremely dangerous," Xian Miaomiao said.
What Xian Miaomiao said was actually also what Chu Feng was worried about. Without mentioning anything else, merely that formation the ten Dark Hall's experts were controlling was something set up by a Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist.
This meant that the Dark Hall had dispatched many experts. The ten rank four Martial Emperors Chu Feng had killed were already extremely powerful experts in the Holy Land of Martialism. After all, the Four Great Imperial Clan's Utmost Exalted Elders were all only rank four Martial Emperors.
They were super experts that could cause an entire region of the Holy Land of Martialism to tremble with a light tap of their feet.
However, Chu Feng felt that these ten rank four Martial Emperors were only small fry among the experts dispatched by the Dark Hall.
Right at that moment, Lil Red who had been silent for a very long time spoke, "I know where the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers are. I'll bring you two there."
"You're still trying to deceive us?" Xian Miaomiao asked with a cold voice. Even though Lil Red's clan had been exterminated, Xian Miaomiao still possessed resentment toward Lil Red for deceiving her.
"I'm not deceiving you two. I really know where the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers are. I can bring you two there. Merely… you two might not necessarily be able to obtain them," Although Lil Red was much calmer than before, it was instead still very low-spirited. Looking at Lil Red, one could only feel pity for it.
"Lil Red, if you truly know where the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers are, then go ahead and lead the way," Chu Feng said.
"Mn," Lil Red turned into a ray of red light and began to fly into the distance.
"Wait," However, Chu Feng suddenly spoke to stop it.
"What's wrong? Great sir, I am truly not deceiving you two," Lil Red returned and revealed an expression of pleading for Chu Feng to believe it.
"I trust you. However, we cannot leave this place like this," The corners of Chu Feng's mouth rose. He revealed a smile of trust in Lil Red. Then, he destroyed the spirit formation that the Dark Hall's experts had set up.
Even though the spirit formation underneath this place was merely one of many sealing formations, Chu Feng felt that it would be of some use should it remain sealed. Thus, he had to destroy the unsealing formation.
After Chu Feng destroyed the unsealing formation, he set up another spirit formation in its place. That spirit formation he set up was merely there to fool others.
When looking at it from the outside, the Dark Hall's unsealing formation would appear to still be present. Furthermore, it looked as if the ten Dark Hall experts who had died were still there controlling and maneuvering the spirit formation.
However, that was all because of Chu Feng's spirit formation. Those ten Dark Hall's experts were definitely all dead. They were all killed by Chu Feng. The unsealing formation was also destroyed, destroyed by Chu Feng.
After finishing that, Chu Feng said, "Lil Red, go ahead and lead the way."
"Gotcha," Lil Red turned into a ray of red light and began to guide Chu Feng and Xian Miaomiao.
After seeing Lil Red's astonishingly fast speed, Chu Feng began to ponder. Lil Red was very powerful. At the very least, Lil Red was extremely special.
However, its race, no matter how Chu Feng looked at it, did not appear to be powerful at all. Else, how could they be that easily exterminated? 1
Furthermore, while Lil Red's clansmen were killed, Chu Feng was still able to tell from their corpses that there were differences between them and Lil Red.
Chu Feng had a thought. Lil Red was not a Royal Spirit Insect. Even if Lil Red was… it was very likely that it was a variant.
Under Lil Red's guidance, Chu Feng and Xian Miaomiao traveled for an entire day before they finally arrived at a large mountain.
"We're here. That's it," Lil Red pointed at a very small crack in that large mountain.
"There are indeed Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers there. I am able to sense their aura. Let's go in," At this moment, Xian Miaomiao revealed an overjoyed expression because Lil Red had not deceived them this time around.
"See, I didn't deceive you all. Merely… the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers are not that easy to obtain. I can go in there, but cannot bring them out," Lil Red said.
At that moment, Xian Miaomiao started to frown. While the large mountain might not appear to be extraordinary, it was actually extremely tough. Even she was unable to carve a path through it.
As for that crack, it was extremely small. Only Lil Red was able to pass through it. That said, Xian Miaomiao was also able to sense that there was a power inside the mountain protecting the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers. As such, it was true that the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers were very hard to obtain.
"If we could take them out, we would've already done so. How could the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers possibly remain there?" Lil Red added.
"Could it be that the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers that we painstakingly found cannot be obtained?" Xian Miaomiao revealed an expression of unwillingness. To not be able to get the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers after finding them was even more painful than not being able to find them.
- Because those were 10 rank 4 Martial Emperors yo! Your Cyanwood Mountain would also be easily exterminated. ↩
Chapter 1921 –Eight Banners
Suddenly, Chu Feng said, "Let me have a look."
Hearing Chu Feng's words, Xian Miaomiao revealed a delighted expression. She was so depressed earlier that she actually forgot that Chu Feng was an extraordinary world spiritist.
"You?" However, after Chu Feng spoke, Lil Red revealed a disdainful gaze. Lil Red did not believe that Chu Feng would be able to do anything. After all, it was impossible for even Lil Red.
"The rock walls of this place are extremely solid because they actually possess a very special power. Although that power is not world spirit power, I can attempt to use my world spirit techniques to undo that power," Chu Feng said.
"It's the power of the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers. The more Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers there are, the stronger that power will be. As this place contains a lot of Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers, the power that protects them is also exceptionally strong," Xian Miaomiao said.
"Leave it to me," Chu Feng smiled again. Then, he began to set up his spirit formation. Merely, Chu Feng's action in setting up the spirit formation this time around was somewhat different from the past.
Before Chu Feng began to actually set up his spirit formation, he took out eight banners from his Cosmos Sack. The eight banners all possessed different colors. However, there were runes and symbols drawn on all eight of them. Contained within those runes and symbols was a special power.
Chu Feng inserted the eight banners into the ground around him. Then, using his world spirit power as a string, he linked the eight banners to one another.
Then, he sat down in the center of the eight banners and began to set up his spirit formation.
Those eight banners were treasures for world spiritists. Chu Feng had obtained them from the possessions of the Avaricious Immortal.
To be honest, if he didn't have those eight banners, it would have been extremely difficult for Chu Feng to break through the defensive power of this place. However, with the eight banners, Chu Feng possessed an eighty percent certainty in being able to break through it.
"Woosh, woosh, woosh~~~"
Chu Feng's hands began to move rapidly and turned into many blurs. At the same time, boundless world spirit power began to fly out from Chu Feng's body like many golden dragons. The golden dragons then entered the spirit formation that Chu Feng was setting up to form a grand spirit formation. Light began to radiate all around. It was a truly imposing sight to behold.
"Beauty, beauty, what is great sir doing? Are those world spirit techniques? Then, could he be a world spiritist?" Lil Red asked Xian Miaomiao curiously. The reason for that was because the spirit formation that Chu Feng was setting up right now was truly shocking to behold.
"That's right. Chu Feng is a world spiritist. Lil Red, you actually know about world spiritists?" Xian Miaomiao looked to Lil Red with a surprised expression. Even though Lil Red, living in this place, was cut off from the rest of the world, it seemed that it knew quite a lot of things.
"Of course. We Royal Spirit Insects are always very hardworking and eager to learn. Furthermore, I am the representative of being hardworking and eager to learn. Thus, I don't know about anything. No, no, no, I meant to say I know about everything."
"I am extremely intelligent, extremely powerful," Lil Red raised its little head proudly.
At that moment, Chu Feng shouted loudly. Then, one of the banners left the spirit formation and, carrying a boundless amount of power, began to fly toward the direction that Chu Feng had pointed at.
That banner struck the mountain. However, the wall that it struck did not break apart, nor did it explode. Instead, like a spirit, the banner passed through the wall.
At this moment, one could tell with one's naked eyes that there were layers of power distorting and dissipating within that mountain's wall.
Chu Feng shouted seven more times in succession. Then, the other seven banners also entered the mountain's wall.
Right at that moment, Chu Feng, who had originally been sitting on the ground, suddenly stood up. As he stood up, the enormous spirit formation that was centered on him actually also rose up alongside him.
At that moment, Chu Feng's long hair was drifting, and his clothes were fluttering. He appeared to be extremely extraordinary and imposing.
Suddenly, Chu Feng clasped his palms together and crossed his fingers. With that, his spirit formation actually shrunk in size and entered his body.
The very next moment, Chu Feng pointed his crossed fingers at the direction where the eight banners had entered.
Once he said that word, a golden light shot out from his fingertips. Like a sharp sword, it pierced into that mountain's wall.
Explosions began to spring up everywhere. Crushed rocks were falling all over the place. That indestructible mountain wall was actually split apart by Chu Feng.
Not only was that mountain wall split apart by Chu Feng, Chu Feng also broke through the power that was protecting the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers.
At that moment, the mysterious Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers appeared before Chu Feng, Xian Miaomiao and Lil Red.
The Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers look like a lump of mist made of silk.
However, with merely a single glance, Chu Feng could tell that they were an extremely extraordinary sort of Natural Energy.
Like their names, they were truly quintessential treasures. Looking at the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers, Chu Feng felt a bit of temptation. If he were to be able to refine all of the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers here, he might even be able to reach a breakthrough from rank one Martial Emperor to rank two Martial Emperor.
However, that was merely a thought. Chu Feng would not actually go and refine the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers because these Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers belonged to Xian Miaomiao.
"Wow! Great sir, your world spirit techniques are actually that powerful? You were actually able to even break apart the power of this place?" Lil Red's mouth was wide open with shock. Disbelief filled its insect face.
As for Xian Miaomiao, she jumped into the mountain cave happily and began to carefully pick away at those Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers.
Chu Feng did not enter. Instead, he watched as Xian Miaomiao harvested the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers that she had longed for day and night.
Suddenly, Xian Miaomiao stopped harvesting the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers. A distressed expression appeared on her previously smiling face.
Seeing that Xian Miaomiao's reaction was strange, Chu Feng stepped forward and asked, "Miaomiao, what's wrong?"
"I can only bring away a portion of the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers here. The other portion cannot be brought away by me," Xian Miaomiao pointed to the several tens of lumps of Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers in the distant.
"Aiya, they have already dissolved in this place. It's truly a pity," Lil Red also ran over.
Chu Feng also discovered that those Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers had, for some reason, dissolved. To put it in simpler terms, those Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers were already damaged.
For example, if those Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers were fruits, then the ones that could be brought away would be the fruits that were in good condition. As for the ones that could not be brought away, they were the rotten fruits. At that moment, the ones that were rotten were even more numerous than the ones that were in good condition. It was no wonder Xian Miaomiao would have such a distressed expression.
"Miaomiao, although those Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers have already dissolved, I have a way to gather a portion of their energy so that you can refine them right now," Chu Feng said.
"Chu Feng, is what you said for real?" Hearing those words, Xian Miaomiao immediately became overjoyed. It was as if she had seen a light at the end of a dark tunnel.
"Why would I lie to you?" Chu Feng was afraid that Xian Miaomiao would not trust him. Thus, he began to set up his spirit formation as he spoke. He wanted to gather the dispersed energy of those Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers so that Xian Miaomiao could refine it.
"But, Chu Feng, there's a lot of Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers here. Even if I am to refine them, it would take me some time. As this place is currently dangerous, are you sure…?" Seeing that Chu Feng had begun to set up his spirit formation, Xian Miaomiao was both moved and worried.
"It's alright. Be at ease, and just start refining them. I will guard this place. I guarantee you that no one will disturb you before you finish refining all of the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers," Chu Feng said with a beaming smile.
Seeing the smile on Chu Feng's face, Xian Miaomiao's face grew stiff. She was moved, and felt a warm feeling running through her heart. However, that warm feeling caused her nose to stuff up slightly.
Chapter 1922 –Lil Red's Past
"Chu Feng, with how good you are to me, I… I truly do not know how to repay you," Xian Miaomiao was extremely grateful to Chu Feng. Although she was feeling as if her body was covered with warmth, her starry, beautiful eyes were actually glistening with specks of tears.
"How about you devote yourself to me so that I can become your Ancient Era's Elves' son-in-law?" Chu Feng said jokingly.
Originally, Xian Miaomiao was very grateful toward Chu Feng. However, upon hearing what Chu Feng said, she curled her little lips and said, "Sure. However, it won't be me. Instead, I'll marry my big sister to you."
"If it's your sister, then we can forget about it. I am not fond of older women," Chu Feng said.
"You actually dare to turn your back on my big sister? Watch as I tell her about it," Xian Miaomiao said.
"Don't, don't, don't. Take into consideration that I've helped you and spare me once," Chu Feng said.
"Fine. I'll take into consideration the effort you've put into helping me and spare you this one time," Xian Miaomiao placed her hands on her hips and spoke with a very haughty attitude. However, she soon seemed to have recalled something. With a very serious expression, she said to Chu Feng, "Let's be serious. Chu Feng, I will not have you help me in vain. In the future, I will also help you."
"It's okay, don't continue acting this way with me. This doesn't resemble your character."
"No matter what, I am your good friend that has been stabbed twice by you. Is there a need for you to distinguish things this thoroughly?" Chu Feng said in a slightly annoyed manner. He knew that Xian Miaomiao was grateful to him. However, it remained that he had helped her without the intention of reciprocation. Thus, he was not fond of Xian Miaomiao acting like this. 1
"Okay then. Since you do not like the emotional and corny me, I'll stab you twice again," Seeing that Chu Feng was actually very disapproving of her behavior, Xian Miaomiao revealed a vile smile. Then, she passed her little hands through Chu Feng's Blood Devouring Armor to tickle him.
"Hey, hey, hey, stop fooling around," Sensing the two soft and smooth hands touching his skin, Chu Feng immediately started to lose his cool.
"Hahaha, never would I expect that a grand Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist would be ticklish too," Xian Miaomiao had a complacent expression on her face.
"I'm not ticklish. Merely, I'm afraid that you'll get a reaction from me. If by chance I am unable to contain myself, I might finish you on the spot," Chu Feng said.
"Finish me on the spot?" Xian Miaomiao's beautiful eyes were flickering nonstop. Originally, she was slightly confused as to what Chu Feng meant by that. However, soon, her little face grew red and she shouted at Chu Feng, "Damned rogue!" Then, she swaggered off.
At that time, the vile and shameless Lil Red asked with a puzzled expression, "Hey, hey, hey, beauty, why is great sir a rogue? He clearly didn't do anything to you, and it was you who was teasing him. Even if it's harassment, shouldn't the harasser be you?"
"I… I… I…" Being questioned in such a way by Lil Red, Xian Miaomiao wanted to explain. However, after thinking for a long time, she was unable to think of a way to explain herself.
Thus, Xian Miaomiao's face grew redder and redder. In the end, she actually grabbed Lil Red and started to pull on Lil Red while shouting, "Lil Red, you insolent thing! You actually dared to speak on his behalf. Do you want to live or not?"
"Aiyayayaya, beauty, spare me. I am with you."
"Then why did you speak for him?"
"I was merely telling the truth. I was just being impartial."
"I'll let you continue to be impartial. I'll let you continue to speak the truth."
"Aiyayaya, I was wrong. Stop pulling me. I am not a rubber band. Ahhh~~~ Ohh~~~ Noo~~~"
After Chu Feng gathered the dispersed energies, Xian Miaomiao did not waste any time. She immediately entered a serious state and began to refine the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers' energies.
As for Chu Feng and Lil Red, they arrived outside of the cave. In order to guard against the unexpected, Chu Feng spent half a day setting up a very powerful concealing formation to conceal Xian Miaomiao and the Ancient Era's Immortal Flowers in the cave.
It was as Xian Miaomiao had said. The people from the Dark Hall were planning to do vile things inside the Blood Devouring Killing Formation. As such, this place was indeed extremely dangerous.
However, precisely because it was dangerous, Chu Feng had to be extra cautious. Since he had promised the Elf King that he would take care of Xian Miaomiao, he must do so properly. Even if something were to happen to him, he must not allow anything to happen to Xian Miaomiao.
"Great sir, how come your world spirit techniques are so powerful? They're simply omnipotent," Lil Red was sitting beside Chu Feng and praising him nonstop.
"Lil Red, are you trying to flatter me?" Chu Feng asked with a smile. He knew that Lil Red was extremely quick-witted.
Furthermore, after the series of things that had happened earlier, Lil Red seemed to no longer be on guard against Chu Feng and Xian Miaomiao. Instead, Lil Red was determined to befriend the two of them.
"Of course not, of course not. I was merely speaking the truth," As Lil Red said those words, its face actually grew red from embarrassment. Even though it possessed the appearance of an insect, its expressions were extremely abundant.
"Lil Red, do you wish to go to the Holy Land of Martialism to check out the monstrous beasts and spirit beasts, the sea and the mountains?" Chu Feng asked. He was able to tell that Lil Red longed for the outside world.
"I do, I do. Great sir, are you capable of taking me there?" Sure enough, after hearing what Chu Feng said, Lil Red became extremely excited.
"Of course I can. Miaomiao is currently your master, and I am Miaomiao's good friend. As such, we are close friends, we are family."
"If you have any desires, you can tell them to Miaomiao and I. We will do our best to help you achieve them."
Chu Feng was speaking his true feelings. Although he had not known Lil Red for long, Chu Feng possessed deep sympathy for Lil Red, as its clan had been exterminated. As such, he did not wish for Lil Red to grieve too much, and wanted to help the little fellow walk out from the haze.
As for the best method of doing so, it would be having a family to love and take care of.
"I'm sorry, I'm sorry," To Chu Feng's surprise, after hearing what Chu Feng said, Lil Red actually started crying.
"Lil Red, what's wrong?" Seeing that, Chu Feng hurriedly and carefully held Lil Red in his hand.
"Great sir is truly good to me. Yet, I cursed and insulted great sir before. I called great sir my grandson, an idiot and a pig. Lil Red is truly sorry," Lil Red said with guilt.
"Haha, so it was actually that. Didn't I also curse and insult you? Didn't I also beat you up? However, it could be said that we only became friends after fighting. As such, I will not blame you and you should not blame me either," Chu Feng said.
"Of course, of course. Great sir has treated me better than my father and mother. I will consider great sir as my relative," Lil Red said.
"What? Your clansmen didn't treat you well?" Hearing those word, Chu Feng seemed to have realized something.
Then, Lil Red opened its heart and began to tell Chu Feng many things about itself.
Even though Lil Red cared deeply about its clansmen, its clansmen had actually not been good to her. Even its so-called mother and father had only treated her like a slave.
The Royal Spirit Insects would never separate from one another. Regardless of whether they were searching for food or doing something, they all moved collectively, and never moved alone.
However, Lil Red had always been out by itself. The reason for that was because it had been pushed aside by the others. Strictly speaking, the Royal Spirit Insects simply never considered it to be their clansman.
