Chapter 1070: Departure
Chapter 1070 – Departure
“There’s something moving inside!” Zhao Feng exclaimed in shock.
The forbidden power on the battlefield could easily kill Demigod experts. Even God-level experts would probably be unable to approach the source of this power, and now, Zhao Feng saw that there was movement within the head of the God corpse.
“Impossible!” Zhao Feng shook his head.
God-level experts weren’t able to exist within the dimension of the continent zone. This meant that the God corpse was definitely dead. But if it was, then what was the blurry movement that Zhao Feng just saw? A peerless divine weapon? Some sort of treasure?
Zhao Feng was extremely excited and curious about the God corpse underground.
“The Divine Power is becoming weaker!”
Zhao Feng had personally witnessed the appearance of this power. At this moment, he could tell that the power on the battlefield was much weaker than before.
The forbidden white divine light would one day eventually disappear. At that point in time, the experts of the continent zone would be able to go underground and scout.
The little thieving cat threw a few old bronze coins into the air and waved around its paws.
“Good fortune?” Zhao Feng’s heart shook, and he felt his blood boil. Even the little thieving cat’s divination abilities said that the God corpse underground represented good fortune.
“But with my current strength…” Zhao Feng shook his head.
The appearance of this Divine Power stopped the war between the two lord dynasties. Zhao Feng knew that Sacred Kings and Demigods wanted to know the secrets underground much more than Zhao Feng. If the divine light disappeared one day, almost all of the experts in the continent zone would go underground, including all the Sacred Kings and Demigods of both lord dynasties.
Zhao Feng could rely on the duplicated substandard God Slaying Arrows to protect himself against Sacred Kings, but if he faced a Demigod, Zhao Feng could do nothing even if he took out the true God Slaying Arrow. Zhao Feng wasn’t even able to unleash the full power of the God Slaying Arrow. Zhao Feng was just like an atom in front of a Demigod – tiny and useless.
Zhao Feng waved his arm, and his figure started to fade under a layer of silver light before completely disappearing. The next instant, he reappeared in the stronghold he had once been in.
At this moment, a large number of people were gathered near the strongholds close to the battlefield. Most of them were intel agents; once anything happened to the forbidden divine light, they would send news to the forces behind them. However, there were also some Grand Elders of some forces present that were keeping an eye on the underground directly and living close by.
Zhao Feng’s appearance instantly raised some attention. Although most people were focusing on the forbidden area, Zhao Feng’s name had travelled far and wide due to him chasing after Sacred Lord Demonic Abyss.
Zhao Feng didn’t bother with them and returned to his residence.
“Zhao Feng, are you interested in the secret of the Divine Power underground?” Nan Gongsheng’s cold voice sounded the moment Zhao Feng arrived. It was obvious that Nan Gongsheng had been waiting here for a long time.
“Of course!” Zhao Feng replied certainly. Everyone in the continent zone was interested, but Zhao Feng knew what Nan Gongsheng meant specifically.
“Even if we team up, it’s still too difficult to find out the secrets underground!” Nan Gongsheng continued to speak. Zhao Feng nodded his head; what Nan Gongsheng said was correct.
The aura coming from Nan Gongsheng had become stronger, but he could still do nothing against a Sacred King. On top of that, it wouldn’t be just Sacred Kings trying to find out the secrets of the God corpse in the future. There would also be Demigods, who stood at the pinnacle of the continent.
“There’s still some time till the power of the God disappears. I’m confident that I can increase my strength to another level during this time. Will I have the opportunity to work with you then?” Nan Gongsheng revealed a cold and cruel smile.
Zhao Feng’s heart jumped. Since Nan Gongsheng had the power of the Evil God, his strength obviously increased by leaps and bounds. There should be no problem for him to reach the late stages of the Mystic Light Realm before the divine light disappeared, but there was also risk involved. One was that his foundation wouldn’t be strong. The second was that his personality would be changed once more.
At the same time, Zhao Feng was stunned. In order to find out the secrets underground, Nan Gongsheng was willing to absorb the power of the Evil God and forcibly increase his cultivation. To a certain degree, the Evil God Mental Thought Body had tempted him, but the original owner of the Evil God Mental Thought Body was Xie Yang, an Ancient God at least at the 6th rank of the nine True God ranks. If even the Evil God Mental Thought Body encouraged Nan Gongsheng to find out the secrets underground, one could see that the God corpse underground was not simple and definitely exceeded Zhao Feng’s expectations.
At this moment, what Nan Gongsheng meant was very obvious. Nan Gongsheng was confident that he could increase his strength by another level, and if Zhao Feng didn’t make major improvements, he might not have the qualifications to team up with Nan Gongsheng.
Zhao Feng was silent for a moment. He could see the God corpse underground. The divination result from the little thieving cat as well as the interest of the Evil God Mental Thought Body in Nan Gongsheng’s body proved that the God corpse underground was definitely not simple. It was impossible for Zhao Feng to give up on the God corpse!
Furthermore, now that the war between the two lord dynasties had halted and the Demigod from Nine Darkness Palace was already out, Zhao Feng felt that it wouldn’t be long till the Demigod of Nine Darkness Palace took action against the Hall of Gods. The fortune contained within the God corpse might be an opportunity for Zhao Feng to overtake Nine Darkness Palace.
“I will definitely go scout out the God corpse!” Zhao Feng replied with a decisive gaze.
With the current amount of resources he had and the duplication ability of his left eye, it wasn’t too difficult for him to increase his cultivation. In order to find out the secrets of the God corpse, Zhao Feng was willing to increase his cultivation speed even if his foundation wasn’t the best afterward.
However, even if Zhao Feng managed to increase his cultivation by one small level, it still was nowhere close to enough for him to find out the secrets of the God Corpse. Therefore, Zhao Feng was willing to work together with Nan Gongsheng.
“Good!” Nan Gongsheng revealed a wicked smile.
The day they destroyed Nine Darkness Palace was the day he and Zhao Feng fought. If Zhao Feng was unable to catch up to his footsteps, then the final battle would have no meaning.
Nan Gongsheng left behind a ball of wicked aura as he disappeared from Zhao Feng’s hall.
“Hehehe! That brat is too cocky. What makes him so confident that he can catch up to your speed!?” the Evil God Mental Thought Body within Nan Gongsheng’s body laughed and said in disdain.
The little thieving cat appeared after Nan Gongsheng left and waved its paws at Zhao Feng.
“Sure. Resources aren’t a problem!” Zhao Feng agreed to the little thieving cat asking for resources without any hesitation. No one knew what kind of difficulties and danger the God corpse contained. The little thieving cat becoming stronger would be of great help to Zhao Feng. Back at the Divine Illusion Dimension, he had mainly relied on the little thieving cat.
“It’s time for me to head back!” Zhao Feng murmured.
According to the current situation, this forbidden divine light wouldn’t disappear for some time. The two lord dynasties didn’t want to fight anymore either; the war had changed into a fight for the God corpse. Whichever lord dynasty obtained more would decide the final victor.
Therefore, there was no point for Zhao Feng to remain behind on the battlefield. On the contrary, there might be some danger if he stayed.
The Sacred Emperor and Empress were still trying to find out how the Thirteenth Prince died, and the Demigod of Nine Darkness Palace was present as well.
Since it was so easy for Zhao Feng to travel with the Misty Spatial World, Zhao Feng decided to first return to the Hall of Gods. Zhao Feng first went to Zhao Yufei though before leaving. The disturbance from the battlefield had woken up both Nan Gongsheng and Zhao Yufei from seclusion.
“Brother Feng!” Zhao Yufei immediately sensed Zhao Feng’s approach, and he saw that his master Duanmu Qing was also present.
“Yufei, I have something to do and need to go back to the Hall of Gods!” Zhao Feng said directly.
“I’ll come with you!” Zhao Yufei said after thinking for a moment.
“No, the Hall of Gods currently has a feud with Nine Darkness Palace. It’s best if you stay here!” Zhao Feng immediately replied.
According to what Zhao Feng knew, the main reason the Duanmu Family fell was because of Nine Darkness Palace. Therefore, Nine Darkness Palace wouldn’t want to see Zhao Yufei’s rise. Zhao Yufei’s Spiritual Race bloodline was too important to the Great Gan Lord Dynasty, so Nine Darkness Palace shouldn’t dare to kill her, but it didn’t hurt to take precautions.
“Also, if my guesses are correct, Yufei’s cultivation speed here should be even faster!” Zhao Feng gave a faint smile.
The Spiritual Race bloodline ate the essence of Heaven and Earth, so the owner’s cultivation speed was faster if they were in a higher quality place like this. Due to the Divine Power, the Heaven Earth Yuan Qi around the battlefield was different and extremely thick now. It was a perfect place for Zhao Yufei to cultivate, and this ancient power might even be able to increase the purity of Zhao Yufei’s bloodline.
If Zhao Yufei was in the world of Gods, her Spiritual Race Bloodline would allow her to become a Sacred King at the least. She might have even become a God already.
“Yufei, I found these resources by accident!” Zhao Feng took out an interspatial ring that contained some pond water from the Ancient Dream Realm, part of the bloodline from the Earth Shattering Raging Bulls, and an ancient herb that he couldn’t distinguish.
Zhao Feng believed that these ancient resources would help Zhao Yufei dramatically. They weren’t much compared to the resources he currently had, but he couldn’t just give it all away because it wouldn’t be a good idea to take out too much right now.
Zhao Feng then said goodbye to Zhao Yufei and Duanmu Qing before leaving the battlefield.
“Junior Martial Sister Yufei, you can cultivate in peace. With your Spiritual Race bloodline, becoming a God is just a matter of time. You don’t need to take this risk!” Duanmu Qing persuaded after Zhao Feng left.
The forbidden power of a God on the battlefield was gradually weakening. Everyone knew that this power would disappear one day, and at that moment, all of the experts in the continent zone would try to find the treasure underground.
The Demigods of both lord dynasties would appear; the danger involved was too high. Duanmu Qing didn’t have strong enough Mystic Light Realm experts to protect Zhao Yufei, so Duanmu Qing didn’t want Zhao Yufei to go.
“No, I have to go in!” Zhao Yufei said in a certain tone. She knew that Zhao Feng would definitely enter, and she wanted to help Zhao Feng as much as she could.
“Yufei, why are you doing this to yourself?” Sacred Lord Purple Night’s voice sounded in her soul.
“I will focus on cultivating during this period of time, so I’ll have the ability to protect myself then!”
Zhao Yufei’s body glittered with a faint purple light as the essence of Heaven and Earth merged into her.
The Spiritual Race was ranked 19th among the Ten Thousand Ancient Races, and their cultivation ruled supreme. As long as they had enough Heaven and Earth essence, the Spiritual Race could devour it and increase their power.
