He had no choice but to keep everything to himself for the time being. He couldn’t tell anyone. Tian Dao Yuan couldn’t solve the issue of the Ground Penetrating Ocean of Flames alone. If the other sects and clans didn’t feel like helping solve the issue of the Ground Penetrating Ocean of Flames, then it would exist forever.
It was a calamity-in-waiting. Lin Feng sighed helplessly, feeling powerless.
He still stood by the window, in a bad mood. Then he thought of the E-Compass and took it out.
It looked like an ordinary compass, but it was green. It didn’t flash anymore. No matter what Lin Feng did, the compass didn’t seem to work.
Lin Feng had become its master when he had carried out the blood ritual. However, it didn’t listen to Lin Feng’s orders. Lin Feng may have not really found a way to control it, after all…
“I didn’t get the Ancestor’s legacy; I just got you, a tiny little thing,” whispered Lin Feng, forcing a smile.
Suddenly. the E-Compass started shaking and buzzing. Green lights flashed again, even more dazzling this time. Lin Feng was overjoyed and stared at it.
What was going on? Why didn’t it react like this when he tried to make it respond before?
Lin Feng stretched out his hand and put the E-Compass in the air just under the ceiling. The E-Compass started rotating, its bright green lights illuminating the area. Lin Feng had the feeling it was staring at him.
He remained wary since something new was happening.
Is someone controlling it?, he thought suddenly. He had carried out the blood ritual, so if someone still managed to control it, it meant that person was much, much stronger than him.
“I don’t know who you are, but you can still control the compass even after the blood ritual I did. If you are not the Ancestor, you may be the second Ancestor, but no matter who you are, the new Master of the E-Compass is me, so I hope you can respect that!
“I don’t want to be disrespectful to a Master, but if you want to bully me, don’t think it’s possible!” Lin Feng finished icily.
Lin Feng decided to isolate the space around him. He didn’t want anyone to notice anything unusual or be scared.
After Lin Feng’s aggressive words, the E-Compass stopped for a few seconds and then it started rotating again.
“it seems like I have no choice, but take actions to make you come out!” Lin Feng stated. He flashed and threw a kick after condensing Genesis Spiritual strength in his foot.
However, the E-Compass released an even more terrifying strength than Lin Feng’s Genesis Spiritual strength. Lin Feng was directly knocked away.
Lin Feng landed on the floor again. He managed to stand after sliding back a few meters. He was astonished; the E-Compass was incredibly powerful. Lin Feng had sensed a power which was even greater than his Genesis Spiritual strength.
“I don’t know who you are, but I hope you don’t mean me any harm. I don’t like it when people treat me like a puppet. If that’s what you intend to do, dream on; you chose the wrong person,” Lin Feng said icily. His eyes were filled with killing intent already, and his Qi was swift and fierce. A little bit more Qi and the room would collapse.
“Hehe, you’re young and impulsive. You have a bad temper,” said someone, laughing at him. Lin Feng looked at the E-Compass, as the voice seemed to come from there.
A silhouette appeared.
Lin Feng saw an old man in white clothes come out of the E-Compass. He was very wrinkled, but his hair was still jet-black, he had no white hair at all. He looked like a middle-aged man, but he was definitely an old man, as his beard was already white.
The old man had his hands clasped behind his back as he stood on the E-Compass. The E-Compass landed on the floor, and the old man sat down on it.
Lin Feng was astonished. The old man was seated on the compass? Who was he? How come he could sit on it? How strong!
“Who are you?” asked Lin Feng. He had already guessed, but he had to be sure.
The old man stroked his beard and smiled in satisfaction, acting all mysterious. “Who do you think I am?” the old man chuckled.
Lin Feng frowned and looked at the old man and his Qi. He had already guessed, but he just shook his head.
The old man laughed, Lin Feng was smart. Not trying to guess his status was a wise choice.
“Your perceptions are not bad. You noticed there was something unusual about the E-Compass straight from the beginning, right?” asked the old man, clearly amused.
Lin Feng looked at him for a long time and then nodded cautiously. He had felt something fuse together with his soul when he had done the blood ritual, and he had also had the impression someone was watching him. It even made his flesh creep.
He was right. The old man had been watching him.
Lin Feng didn’t understand how, as his knowledge of space and time strength was quite advanced, and he hadn’t sensed any space and time strength emerge from the compass.
Unless the old man was stronger than him, Lin Feng should have sensed something. How had the old man managed to hide in the E-Compass without being noticed at all?
The old man didn’t know what Lin Feng was thinking, but he was clearly in a good mood. If Lin Feng hadn’t carried out the blood ritual, the old man might never have been able to come out.
“Hey, young man, your name is Lin Feng?” asked the old man, waving Lin Feng in closer.
Lin Feng looked at the old man warily, but since he thought he knew who he was, he stepped closer. Even if he was the new Master of the compass, he didn’t dare disobey.
The old man jumped off the E-Compass. The E-Compass followed the old man, but Lin Feng slapped it, and it crashed to the floor. A meter-wide crater appeared, then Lin Feng kicked it and caught it with his hand.
When the old man saw that, he grinned. Lin Feng really had an explosive personality.
Lin Feng didn’t care about the old man’s expression, the E-Compass was his!
“If you take it again, I’ll put you in the Ground Penetrating Ocean of Flames and burn you. Then I’ll use you to refine my Sword of Remote Times,” Lin Feng said threateningly to the E-Compass. The E-Compass trembled in fright. It was afraid, and didn’t dare get close to the old man again.
Lin Feng grinned, then looked at the old man. The old man looked at him and gave him a thumbs-up.
“Little boy, who chose you as the new leader of Tian Dao Yuan?” the old man chortled.
He had been watching Lin Feng for two days already, ever since Lin Feng had gone into the underground chamber. He had seen Lin Feng pass the test, so this was his heir. The old man thought Lin Feng was a good young man. He had even managed to destroy Tan Zi Ming’s soul, which was very impressive.
He had even found someone to translate the text he had written. Lin Feng paid attention to details; that was a good thing too.
Lin Feng was almost a perfect heir. Of course, those were just the old man’s first impressions. He needed more time to understand what kind of person Lin Feng was.
Lin Feng stared back at the old man. Lin Feng thought the Ancestor only had the strength of the Supreme God layer, but at this moment, he couldn’t see the old man’s cultivation level.
Lin Feng had less respect for the old man after learning what he had done with the Ground Penetrating Ocean of Flames. He still thought the old man was fierce and ambitious, but not heroic.
The old man had dared gamble with the fate of the whole continent; that was still impressive!
“Ancestor Kong chose me, and then I started cultivating,” replied Lin Feng.
The old man studied him curiously. He hadn’t thought Ancestor Kong was so skilled; he had a good sense of judgement.
“I am Ancestor Ye Tian!”
