Chapter 48: The Continent of the Nine Clouds Might Be in Danger!
Edited by RED
The old ox knew that Lin Feng had brought the broken soul here to ask him questions. Because he was afraid the broken soul wouldn’t tell the truth, he had taken him to the old ox.
The old ox was old, he understood those things.
But Lin Feng didn’t mind, he had nothing to hide. He was convinced the old ox wouldn’t get angry because of that. Lin Feng didn’t use him, it was just a small favor.
“Di, thirty-thousand years ago, the Continent of the Gods was in a state of chaos?” Lin Feng asked.
Di didn’t hide the truth. “Indeed. Thirty-thousand years ago, the Continent of the Gods went through the Great War of the Hundred Regions’ Holy Shrines. Countless people died. Many strong cultivators vanished without a trace.”
“I see. Why did you fight?” asked Lin Feng.
Di looked hesitant. The old ox glanced at him sternly, so Di told the truth. “We fought because of a young person who controlled Divine Dao.”
“Because of a young person who controlled Divine Dao?” Lin Feng found the excuse ironic. He could definitely imagine such a thing. Hadn’t he lived something similar?
Divine Dao was a mysterious kind of Dao strength. Someone who controlled such a Dao definitely drew people’s attention. Cultivators could become stronger more quickly with the help of someone who controlled Divine Dao, so such a cultivator was naturally coveted.
Therefore, the fact that such a person had caused a great war wasn’t that surprising.
“Where is that person now?” asked Lin Feng. He was curious. He had been abandoned by the gods and had a forbidden body. That young person and Lin Feng might be natural enemies.
Unfortunately, Di’s reply disappointed Lin Feng, because that young person had disappeared back during the great war.
“How unfortunate,” the old ox sighed.
“Di, do you know Xue Baguio?” asked Lin Feng. That was the question he wanted to ask the most.
Di looked thoughtful and then nodded. He replied, “I know her. She’s a chief disciple in the Silver Sect. I have seen her. Do you know her, Lin Feng? She disappeared thirty thousand years ago though.”
“I know her. She’s been living in my homeland for thirty thousand years,” Lin Feng nodded.
Di looked at Lin Feng in a strange way, “Your homeland?”
“Di, don’t you know that there are other worlds apart from the Continent of the Gods?” Lin Feng asked without replying.
Di looked stupefied. His eyes were wide open.
“You… you’re from the Continent of the Nine Clouds?”
Di wasn’t even done talking when Lin Feng jumped forwards and landed in front of him, shouting furiously, “You do know the Continent of the Nine Clouds!”
“Uhhh… We all know about the Continent of the Nine Clouds in the Continent of the Gods! I am not the only one who knows about it!” explained Di hastily when he saw Lin Feng was angry.
Lin Feng’s expression changed, he looked at the old ox and asked, “Master, he…”
“Yes, it’s the truth. People from the Continent of the Gods almost all know about the Continent of the Nine Clouds. When you meet the true God, he will explain everything to you. You don’t need to know too much right now,” answered the old ox. He didn’t tell Lin Feng what he wanted to know. He was well aware that Lin Feng wouldn’t leave the matter at that.
“You two have a good chat. I’m going to play chess with your parents,” said the old ox when he saw Di didn’t mean Lin Feng any harm, leaving silently.
When Lin Feng saw the old ox leave, he went back to his room in Bodhidharma’s palace with Di.
“Di, why do people from the Continent of the Gods know about the Continent of the Nine Clouds?” asked Lin Feng. He had to understand the reason.
He was the best cultivator of the Continent of the Nine Clouds. He was like an ultimate god there and people considered him such there. Therefore, he needed to understand everything related to the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
Di didn’t hide the truth from Lin Feng, as it didn’t matter to him anyway.
“Lin Feng, the Continent of the Nine Clouds is a world under the jurisdiction of the Continent of the Gods. Initially, the hundred great Holy Shrines controlled it, then some godlike cultivator told all the Shrines’ leaders nobody could go to the Continent of the Nine Clouds anymore, and they sealed the Continent of the Nine Clouds, isolating it from the Continent of the Gods. People slowly forgot about it,” said Di.
His words felt like blades in Lin Feng’s heart. He had never thought the Continent of the Nine Clouds was just a world under the jurisdiction of another realm.
Lin Feng was curious about who that mysterious and unfathomable godlike cultivator was. He had told everyone they couldn’t go to the Continent of the Nine Clouds anymore and everybody had obeyed, what was the reason?
Lin Feng knew nobody could tell him about that, he had to become stronger to meet stronger people who would be able to tell him a little bit more. The problem was, was the Continent of the Nine Clouds safe?
“Di, are there strong cultivators from the Continent of the Gods who go to the Continent of the Nine Clouds sometimes?” asked Lin Feng.
The first person Lin Feng had met from the Continent of the Gods in the Continent of the Nine Clouds was Xue Baguio. Therefore, he wanted to know if there were other people.
Even though Di didn’t understand why Lin Feng asked all those questions, and why he was so concerned about the Continent of the Nine Clouds, he still answered.
“There are. Thirty thousand years ago, three strong cultivators went to the Continent of the Nine Clouds. I don’t know whether they came back or not though,” replied Di.
“Who! Tell me!” said Lin Feng nervously.
“The first one was the Sword Supreme Cultivator. The second was the Bestial Supreme Cultivator. The third one was the Ice Woman Supreme Cultivator,” Di told Lin Feng.
Lin Feng had never heard of any of them.
“Were they all High-Level Holy Emperors back then?” asked Lin Feng.
Di shook his head and smiled, “How could that be possible? There weren’t that many High-Level Holy Emperors back then. When they went to the Continent of the Nine Clouds back then, they were all Peerless Holy Kings. Besides, when they go to the Continent of the Nine Clouds, they temporarily become amnesic. They need to reincarnate many times to recover their memories. Therefore, right now, they could, at most, be Half-Holy Emperors,” said Di. He sounded certain of himself. However, Lin Feng was worried.
If that was the case, what would happen if those three people were Half-Holy Emperors or even Low-Level Holy Emperors, and were in the Continent of the Nine Clouds, what would happen? Lin Feng didn’t know anything about them. He wasn’t even there.
What if those three people changed the destiny of the Continent of the Nine Clouds?
Lin Feng couldn’t contact anyone from the Continent of the Nine Clouds, he couldn’t see what was happening there. He could only look for Xue Baguio and ask her for help getting back to the Continent of the Nine Clouds to check if everything was fine there.
His clones hadn’t been destroyed yet, which meant nothing major had happened.
“Di, stay with me from now on. I know your sworn enemy is Yuan Kui from the Supranatural Region’s Holy Shrine. In the future, I will help you get your revenge. But for now, you must help me. Even though you’re not as strong as thirty-thousand years ago, you’re already very, very old and you have lots of experience and knowledge, you can help me as we travel.”
“Alright, I agree. If I can get my revenge, then I will do anything for you,” said Di. He had no other option anyway. It was his only chance, but it was also an opportunity.
Lin Feng was relieved when he heard Di’s reply.
