Everlasting - Everlasting Chapter 1115 The Scarlet Heaven Pocket Dimension
This person does have some hidden cards on him. With these magic treasures, killing off some high-level True Immortals is indeed doable, but to escape from the grasp of Heavenly Immortals, that would be quite difficult. They were all Heavenly Immortals. They would not so easily believe Chen Feng. Naturally, they would also not give up on a genius like this.
“I wonder, how did you escape?” After pondering for a moment, the Heavenly Immortals finally decided to directly ask Chen Feng.
“The Starsource Order encountered some issues. Without the suppressive power of the pseudo-Divine artifact, I was able to run away,” Chen Feng said, a somewhat unhappy expression on his face.
As expected, seeing Chen Feng’s expression, the feelings of suspicions within the Heavenly Immortals lessened considerably. That said, there were still some knots within their hearts. They were concerned that Chen Feng might not sincerely want to be part of the Six Daos Sword Faction.
“We will be sure to report to the higher-ups about your contribution to the sect here. Our Six Daos Sword Faction will not mistreat disciples who have contributed to the sect,” Killer Sword of the Heavenly Dao said after a moment’s consideration, his voice serious and sincere.
“I hope so.”
“You don’t believe me?” Killer Sword of the Heavenly Dao’s face darkened.
“It has already been some time since I joined the Six Daos Sword Faction. So, I do know a little about the way the Six Daos Sword Faction works. Why else did I get sent here?” After saying that, Chen Feng saw a somewhat embarra.s.sed expression on the faces of the Heavenly Immortals.
“Back then, in order to win me over, Star Monarch Blackshine agreed to teach me three of the secret techniques from the Treasured Starsource Record. A pity, what a pity.”
When the Heavenly Immortals heard that, their faces became even more grim.
Originally, the Heavenly Immortals had wanted to send Chen Feng back to the sect and nurture him well. They wanted to win him over by having him become a core disciple of the Six Daos Sword Faction.
In the beginning, Chen Feng had wanted to agree. However, after considering it some more, he rejected it.
“Since this is a mission from the sect, I should stay here for the full 100 years.”
Chen Feng had his own reasons for doing this. Although there was the threat of the cultivators from the Celestial Longevity Plane, the star spirit stone mine here was quite attractive.
Due to Chen Feng’s insistence, the Heavenly Immortals could not do anything about it. They had no choice but to agree on letting Chen Feng continue on as one of the defenders of the mine. Only, his rank had been raised to a Defence Team Leader. Additionally, two Heavenly Immortals also stayed behind to keep watch. Firstly, it was to guard the mine. Secondly, it was to protect Chen Feng. Not to mention, the teleportation array had been restored as well. Thus, should anything happen, they could immediately make contact with the sect.
And so, Chen Feng’s days were spent in tranquillity once more. The only exception would be the occasional visits from the other cultivators who wanted to ingratiate themselves with him. Even some of the heir disciples would display respect when meeting Chen Feng. And while some of them were envious of Chen Feng, this was the Immortal Plane, a place that valued strength above all else. None dared to provoke Chen Feng. Even those supervisors who had received the order to trouble Chen Feng chose to behave themselves. Back then, Chen Feng had saved all their lives, after all.
After returning to the sect, the Six Dao Swords of Devastation reported the matter regarding Chen Feng to the higher-ups of the sect. Additionally, they also beat up the force that had secretly taken action against Chen Feng.
Naturally, Chen Feng was in the dark about all that. Rather, he was not interested in that. Since tranquillity returned to the spirit stone mine, Chen Feng had been spending all his time extracting the spiritual energy from the depths of the mine to cultivate himself.
During his 10th year at the mine, the Bedazzling Star Map finally levelled up to become a Divine artifact. After another 10 years, it managed to stabilize its power. As for Chen Feng, he finally managed to comprehend the mysteries contained within it. The Bedazzling Star Map was actually a map leading to a treasure h.o.a.rd, left behind by a Heavenly Immortal. Chen Feng had already figured out the exact route recorded there. Only, this was not the time to leave. Chen Feng planned only pushing this matter aside until he had dealt with his present danger.
Furthermore, the treasure h.o.a.rd of a Heavenly Immortal was not that alluring for Chen Feng.
On his 50th year there, the Divine Sun Needle also successfully levelled up to the Divine tier.
During the years spent there, the Chaos Chain and several other magic treasures also levelled up to the pseudo-Divine tier. The Heaven Piercing Lance and some others levelled up to the top-grade Immortal tier.
Additionally, Chen Feng had also refined many Longevity Fruits and large amounts of longevity energy from the Longevity Wood. Due to that, more and more of the secrets within the Longevity Scripture were revealed to Chen Feng. The Longevity Sword and the other Longevity weapons also reached the pinnacle of the top-grade Immortal tier. They could break through to the pseudo-Divine tier at any moment.
Chen Feng’s objective was to have all his Longevity weapons level up to the Divine tier. Then, the Heavenly Immortals from the Longevity Clan would be incapable of threatening him at all.
Additionally, who knows just how much more power the Longevity Tower could have recovered when that happened? Thus, the only threat to him then would be the Gold Immortal stage.
The Gold Immortal stage.
Thinking about that gave Chen Feng a headache. While the Gold Immortal stage was not something beyond his reach, he was also incapable of fighting a Gold Immortal anytime soon. Thus, before reaching a level where he could, this matter would be like a great mountain hanging over his head, ready to smash down at any moment.
During that 50 years, the Starsource Order did not attack. On the contrary, after increasing the number of men there, the Six Daos Sword Faction attacked the Starsource Order twice.
Both were small-scale wars and Chen Feng did not partic.i.p.ate in them. He spent all those years devouring the spiritual energy of the spirit stone mine. Even the Longevity Tower had absorbed a portion of the spiritual energy there.
Thankfully, Tower was not too interested in the spirit mine. Should it start to devour for real, the mine would not be enough for it, even if it was several times bigger.
“Senior Brother Chen, Supervisor w.a.n.g requests a meeting.” Chen Feng had only just started his cultivation session not too long ago when Patron Mountriver walked over.
“Why is he looking for me?” Chen Feng was somewhat puzzled. This Supervisor w.a.n.g was one of those who were hostile towards him back then. Later on, he found out that he was like w.a.n.g Yunxiao, a member of the w.a.n.g Family. Only, due to the matter of the battle with the Starsource Order and Heavenly Sword Sect, Supervisor w.a.n.g stopped trying to offend Chen Feng. Rather, he even put up a display of respect towards him.
“I’m not sure either, but I think some other disciples came over from the sect. It might be related.” Over the years, Patron Mountriver had completely become Chen Feng’s attendant. On Chen Feng’s end, he did not mistreat him. Occasionally, he would give him some pointers. More, he would even give him some medicinal pills and secret techniques. Thanks to that, Patron Mountriver’s cultivation base was able to rise by leaps and bounds. That also affirmed his decision to follow Chen Feng.
“Fine, let’s go check it out.” Chen Feng nodded and returned to the base.
Upon returning to the base, Chen Feng saw Supervisor w.a.n.g and two young cultivators there. They were smiling as they waited for him. One of the two young cultivators were none other than w.a.n.g Yunxiao while the other one was Sword Immortal Asura. All three were high-level True Immortals.
“Ha ha ha! Greetings, Brother Chen. I decided to take the liberty to visit you. I hope you don’t mind,” w.a.n.g Yunxiao took the lead and spoke up.
“Thank you,” Chen Feng replied.
“I am holding a banquet. I hope that Brother Chen can do me the honours of attending.” Seeing Chen Feng, w.a.n.g Yunxiao secretly swore. However, the smile on his face did not falter in the slightest.
“Not a problem. I would have to trouble you fellows, then.” Chen Feng smiled as well.
“Not a problem. Not a problem at all.”
The location for the banquet was Supervisor w.a.n.g’s small courtyard. As one of the persons in charge of the base, Supervisor w.a.n.g’s courtyard was – be it in terms of beauty or defensive power – far better compared to the residences of the other defenders.
“Come, a toast to Brother Chen. In the past, I had offended you before. This time, we three brothers apologize to you.” w.a.n.g Yunxiao and the other two fellows put on a very humble display. Seeing that, Chen Feng secretly sneered. He wanted to see just what they were up to.
“It’s just a misunderstanding,” Chen Feng said, smiling.
“Yes, a misunderstanding.”
When the banquet was about to end, w.a.n.g Yunxiao suddenly said, “By the way, did Brother Chen ever hear about the Scarlet Heaven Pocket Dimension?”
Here it comes. Chen Feng was secretly scoffing, but he replied, “No. In the past, I was only a loose cultivator. I spent most of my time on cultivation. So, I do not know too much about the other places in the Immortal Plane.”
“The Scarlet Heaven Pocket Dimension is located in the Primordial Mountain Range. It lies in between the territories of several major forces, but that is not the important issue here. “What’s important is that this Scarlet Heaven Pocket Dimension is a bodily world that a Gold Immortal left behind,” w.a.n.g Yunxiao said, keeping an eye on Chen Feng’s expression.
As expected, Chen Feng became tempted.
“Something that a Gold Immortal left behind?”
“If so, wouldn’t there be many cultivators attempting to enter?” Chen Feng asked curiously.
“Naturally. However, the Scarlet Heaven Pocket Dimension is jointly guarded by four great forces. For other cultivators, entering it is an incredibly difficult feat,” w.a.n.g Yunxiao said smugly.
Chen Feng was silent. In truth, he knew much about the Six Daos Sword Faction. He knew that what w.a.n.g Yunxiao said was true. Only, the cultivators from the other forces could also enter, but at a hefty price. This was similar to the pocket dimensions he encountered in Eternal World, only the two were on different levels.
The bodily world left behind by a Gold Immortal was practically like a universe. More, as it was something left behind by a Gold Immortal, Heavenly Immortals would go crazy going after it.
“I wonder, is Brother Chen interested in entering it for an adventure?” w.a.n.g Yunxiao asked, smiling.
“Can I?” asked a shocked and delighted Chen Feng.
“Ha ha ha! I can get a spot for Brother Chen.” w.a.n.g Yunxiao laughed. He was secretly feeling smug about it.
“My cultivation base is lacking. I fear that there will be danger in entering it.” Chen Feng quickly calmed down.
“Every year, True Immortals from our sect will enter. Some would come across serendipity inside and their cultivation bases would soar once they emerge. When the time comes, we can join up and enter together. That way, we will be able to take care of one another,” w.a.n.g Yunxiao continued with a chuckle.
“Thank you, Brother w.a.n.g. When do we enter?” Chen Feng was interested in this pocket dimension that a Gold Immortal had left behind. And although he knew that these fellows bore malicious intentions, he simply didn’t think much about it.
“We can enter anytime we want. I have a pa.s.s here,” w.a.n.g Yunxiao said, bringing out a jade token the size of a palm. Engraved onto its surface was a quaint ‘command’ character.
“This is the token to enter the Scarlet Heaven Pocket Dimension?”
“Very well. I thank you, Brother w.a.n.g. However, I have to stay here for the full 100 years. When the time comes, I will go look for Brother w.a.n.g.”
“Not a problem.”
Next up, they continued chatting, talking about some pointless topics. Then, w.a.n.g Yunxiao and Sword Immortal Asura bade him farewell. They had come here specifically for Chen Feng.
After returning to his own place of residence, Chen Feng chortled. In addition to hiding from his pursuers, Chen Feng had other plans for joining the Six Daos Sword Faction, such as learning some of the secret techniques and cultivation techniques of the Six Daos Sword Faction. As for this Scarlet Heaven Pocket Dimension, Chen Feng had long since learned about it. He had been thinking about earning enough contribution points to purchase the right to enter it. Unexpectedly, the chance to enter it would come to him on its own.
