Zu Ti had confirmed that the four souls were right. If Lin Feng destroyed Tan Zi Ming’s coffin, he would destroy the seal which prevented the souls from leaving. If nobody broke the coffin, then the four souls would be stuck here forever.
“When I arrived, Lin Ou asked me to destroy Tan Zi Ming’s coffin. I did my best but I failed,” Chen Cheng sighed helplessly. He felt guilty too.
When Lin Ou heard Chen Cheng, he didn’t get angry. Back then, Chen Cheng had the strength of the fifth Great Supreme God layer, and he still hadn’t managed to break the coffin.
It was said that Tan Zi Ming only had the strength of the Supreme God layer back in the days, and he hadn’t even broken through to the Great Supreme God layer. However, for some reason, he was stronger than current Great Supreme Gods. Therefore, current Great Supreme Gods couldn’t defeat Supreme Gods of the ancient times.
Lin Feng was stupefied. Chen Cheng had failed to break Tan Zi Ming’s coffin with the strength of the Great Supreme God layer?! How astonishing!
“I failed too,” added Shang Guan Si Yue, sighing angrily. He also had the strength of the fifth Great Supreme God layer, and he had failed too.
“We all failed, but I did a little bit better, I managed to make the seal shake a little, so I made it weaken thirty percent, I would say. Such a long time has passed, it can’t be very resistant anymore. I’m sure you can break it easily. You have the strength of the first Great Supreme God layer, but I can see that you are as strong as a cultivator of the third,” Shi Si Ming told Lin Feng excitedly, hoping Lin Feng would manage to break the coffin and the seal.
They had been stuck inside for such a long time. Lin Ou had been stuck in there the longest, and Shi Si Ming was the last to arrive. They were all sick of being in there. They set high hopes on Lin Feng for that reason.
The four souls did their best to convince Lin Feng. They were even willing to give all their soul strength to Lin Feng if he needed it. As long as he broke the coffin, anything would be worth it.
Lin Feng studied the four souls. They had been suffering in here for such a long time. No wonder they hated Tan Zi Ming!
Lin Feng didn’t refuse their request. Even if it wasn’t part of the exam, he didn’t care; he wanted to help them. If he managed to save four cultivators of the fifth Great Supreme God layer and then managed to resurrect them, they would be able to help him. Even if he couldn’t bring them back, they would still be helpful. They were still four powerful souls.
Four cultivators of the Great Supreme God layer were incredible. One could well imagine since the Old Servant alone had, with the strength of the fifth Great Supreme God layer, had been able to make the rules. People used to be terrified of him.
If Lin Feng had four strong cultivators of the fifth Great Supreme God layer on his side, then everybody would fear him. In any case, Lin Feng was already excited, and would definitely do his best to save them and then use them.
When he agreed, the four souls were overjoyed. Shang Guan Si Yue smiled happily. No matter what, they had to help and do their best.
“We don’t have much time. You can’t stay in the underground palace more than twelve hours, or you will fail the test. But you don’t need to worry; if you destroy Tan Zi Ming’s coffin, you’ll get the legacy easily.
“We failed at that point, so we never got to receive the Ancestor’s legacy,” said Shi Si Ming sighing sadly. All those Masters felt like they had been victims of fate.
Lin Feng nodded. “There’s no time to lose. Let’s hurry up and start,” he said coldly. He turned around and looked at Tan Zi Ming’s coffin.
Lin Feng despised Tan Zi Ming for what he had done to the four other Masters. Because of him, they had been killed by the Patriarch of the Tian Ji Sect.
The souls stayed away so as not to disturb him.
The atmosphere became gloomy and cold. Everybody stared at Tan Zi Ming’s coffin.
Nobody paid attention to the cold and gloom. The coffin was all that mattered.
Lin Feng stood less than a hundred meters away from the front of Tan Zi Ming’s coffin. However, Lin Feng felt like he was tens of thousands of li away from it for some reason.
But this time, he didn’t have time to think, he had to move. Since he was the leader of Tian Dao Yuan, he had to receive the Ancestor’s legacy. Nothing could stop him and if anybody tried, Lin Feng would greet them with death!
He took a deep breath and took out the Sword of Remote Times. Golden sword Qi illuminated the area around him.
The terrifying sword Qi rolled through the underground palace. The gloomy and cold Qi of the underground palace sharpened up. The four souls released all their strength to protect themselves.
“Tan Zi Ming, it’s your fault. You’ve been resting in peace for hundreds of thousands of years, now it’s time to make your corpse come out! Come out now!” shouted Lin Feng. He made a full cutting motion with his sword. The blow streaked across the room in a wave of sword Qi.
The four souls stared at the sword Qi. The sword sparkled when it collided against the coffin, and something exploded.
The four souls were astonished. What kind of weapon was that? It was terrifying!
“Is it… a legendary great supreme godly weapon?” shouted Shang Guan Si Yue suddenly. He was astonished and couldn’t believe it. The ghosts’ expressions changed drastically.
The four souls looked at the Sword of Remote Times with their eyes wide.
“A great supreme godly weapon from the ancient times?” whispered Shi Si Ming.
“How terrifying!” whispered Chen Cheng seriously.
There was another explosion. Everybody looked at the coffin, now completely destroyed. There were pieces everywhere.
The four souls were speechless and dumbstruck.
One sword attack, and a cultivator of only the first Great Supreme God layer, Lin Feng, alone, had broken Tan Zi Ming’s coffin extremely easily. The seal strength had already started dispersing.
Astonished. Speechless. Dumbstruck. The four men were dumbfounded. Shang Guan Si Yue’s eyes were filled with jealousy, but only for a few seconds
Even if he killed Lin Feng, then what? He was old. Lin Feng was young. Old people were supposed to help young people.
After that, Shang Guan Si Yue felt relieved.
Lin Feng took a deep breath. Even though it had only been one sword strike, he had used almost all his strength, including the spiritual Qi of his spirit world. If that attack failed, then he would have failed the whole test.
But luckily, the Sword of Remote Times was extremely powerful. Thanks to the sword, Lin Feng was like a tiger that had grown wings.
Great Supreme Godly weapons were extraordinary, to be able to remove such seals!
