Peerless Martial God - Chapter 1097
Chapter 1097: Emperor's Body
’’What era?’’ whispered the ghost. He looked confused because he had forgotten. He only knew that he had been there for a very, very long time.
’’I don't know how long it's been, I just know that the ancient imperial court started fighting against the animal clan because of the Celestial Emperor's fall. Many influential groups were involved. It was like hell on earth. The whole world started fighting and we were all buried inside’’
’’Ancient imperial court!’’ Qiong Qi's heart started racing. He thought he was old, but that ghost was a lot older than him. In any case, that extremely strong cultivator from the antiquity had become his slave.
’’You know the ancient imperial court?’’ asked Lin Feng. Who was that?
’’I received some memories, but just a part. I just know that it was a very powerful group hundreds of thousands of years ago in the Continent of the Nine Clouds. I don't know why it disappeared, because of the long river of hell or because people destroyed them. The great ancient war started because of them though, I think.’’ said Qiong Qi. The ghost's story was similar to some of his memories which made him happy.
’’Hundreds of thousands of years!’’ Lin Feng was astonished.
’’What is the long river of hell? Is it the Huang Sea hell?’’ asked Lin Feng. Did hell really exist?
’’Huang Sea?’’ asked the ghost surprised. He didn't know what the Huang Sea was.
’’We're under the depths of the Huang Sea right now. It probably appeared because of the war you just mentioned.’’ replied Lin Feng. That's what he had heard about the Huang Sea. He didn't know exactly what happened hundreds of thousands of years before though. Only those ghosts could know.
’’Why is it called the Huang Sea? The war opened a door to hell, did the corrosive energies of hell turn into a sea?’’ asked the ghost, he was curious. Lin Feng was incredulous. Corrosive energies of hell? Had they turned into the Huang Sea? Did hell really exist?
’’Emperor!’’ said Lin Feng to Qiong Qi. Qiong Qi looked at Lin Feng and said slowly, ’’I don't know either. I know it has something to do with hell though.’’
’’How?’’ asked Lin Feng. He didn't understand.
’’In Jiu You, there's a forbidden place. It is said that it is a linked to hell and that the energies of hell flow from there. It is a place of decay and destruction.’’ said Qiong Qi indifferently.
Jiu You seemed like a scary place.
’’What was the cultivation level of the emperor who created this place and who were you to him?’’ asked Lin Feng.
’’An emperor, a low level one, another emperor's servant. He died during the great war, the small world was destroyed by some people and turned into ruins. I was his servant.’’
’’An emperor who was an emperor's servant.’’ thought Lin Feng. It seemed like there were cultivators stronger than emperors.
’’Are there other historical remains?’’
’’I don't know, we were attacked by surprise by an extremely strong cultivator. We were all destroyed as well as our weapons. I studied a mysterious book that taught me how to seal my spirit in a holy weapon. That's how I survived. The emperor must have been killed too. I don't know if there are any more historical remains.’’ explained the ghost.
’’I'll find you a great physical body when we get back.’’ said Lin Feng to the ghost. In the Jade Emperor's palace, there were many strong cultivators, and with Lin Feng's current strength, there were many people he still couldn't control.
Lin Feng had hoped he could become friends with that ghost. Qiong Qi could use holy marks anyways to control the ghost if he got out of hand. That ghost would become strong again, after hundreds of thousands of years..
Lin Feng continued exploring the small world. Just as the ghost had said, everything was destroyed. Lin Feng found some palaces and gardens which were used to practice cultivation, however, they possessed no Qi.
’’How incredible, the emperor could do whatever he wanted inside, build things and so on.’’ thought Lin Feng. He hoped he would become an emperor someday, then he would make his own small world too and would bring all his friends and family members inside. He would build great palaces and gardens just like this or even better.
Of course, Lin Feng could only imagine that. The path of cultivation was a difficult one and he could only progress step by step. He needed to become a Zun cultivator and then an emperor.
The second broken soul Lin Feng encountered had also studied a mysterious technique, but Qiong Qi also used a technique to force him to sacrifice himself and become his servant.
Lin Feng was happy. Two spirits, he just had to give them strong physical bodies and he would have two Zun level friends from the ancient past.
Of course, Lin Feng also found some more holy weapons. There wasn't a single weapon left in perfect condition. The two ghosts they had would have decayed like those weapons if they hadn't studied a special technique.
At that moment, Lin Feng arrived in front of a blue palace, it still looked luxuriant with strange marks on it.
’’That's where our master lived and practiced cultivation!’’ said the two ghosts. They still looked scared while standing in front of it.
There was a gigantic hand mark on it, a strong cultivator had slapped the palace to destroy it.
’’An emperor's palace!’’ Lin Feng entered the palace. He would probably find the best treasures inside.
Qiong Qi's eyes were twinkling as he closely followed Lin Feng. He used to be an emperor, but now he needed to recover.
That palace was gigantic. Even though it was covered with dust, it was still luxuriant. There was a throne farther inside, and under that throne, there was a corpse.
’’A perfect corpse with flesh!’’
Lin Feng was amazed. If that was an emperor's body, then he really hit a jackpot. It was a precious treasure, many people would go insane just to have it.
