PMG Chapter 2252: Fighting Phantoms
Edited by RED
The King of the Ten Thousand Beasts’ first life had been the most splendid and glorious one, but also the most humiliating one. Lin Feng didn’t understand what that meant. However, he could imagine that kind of humiliation had made him what he had become. Now, he was emotionless and so strong; he stood at the top, and he didn’t care about anyone or anything.
“Five more lives, and you will start understanding me,” smiled the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts.
Once again, Lin Feng’s soul emerged from his body. Each time Lin Feng lived one of the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts’ lives, he had the impression he had reincarnated. He didn’t feel those lives were the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts’ lives.
When Lin Feng experienced a few more lives, he felt confused. He hadn’t even finished his own life, and he had experienced seven of the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts’ lives. As one could well imagine, it was a shocking experience.
Lin Feng’s soul was returned his body. He closed his eyes and forget about the outside world. He thought about all the things he had experienced.
He kept telling himself that those lives weren’t his, but the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts’. He had just observed those lives. He couldn’t let those lives influence him. He couldn’t become like the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts!
The seven lives turned into seven stars in his brain. Around the stars were his own memories; he couldn’t mix them with the others. The King of the Ten Thousand Beasts’ lives could be beneficial to him, as long as he didn’t mix everything up!
Lin Feng opened his eyes; he looked normal again. He inspected those lives using his own memories and experience, studying them from the outside.
Lin Feng used the Celestial Evolution Holy Scriptures. However, this time, he didn’t use the Celestial Evolution Holy Scriptures to modify strength; he used them to modify those memories, those lives!
The Celestial Evolution Holy Scriptures were extremely powerful. They allowed him to study those memories while staying relatively safe. Using the things he had studied in the Fortune Shrine’s archive hall, Lin Feng studied for ten days and ten nights, and after that, he felt exhausted and stopped.
He frowned, opened his eyes and sighed. “The King of the Ten Thousand Beasts, in each life, broke through after having understood something great. Each time, he loved his teachers, but in the end, everything becomes cold. In his second life, he was in love with his female junior fellow disciple, but then he became extremely strong and killed her, and at the same time he understood something great. All of this is related to the eight distresses; you become emotionless as you become stronger.
“Apart from his first two lives, the five other ones were similar; he understood incredible things and changed. However, the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts and I are different. I’m at the top of the Huang Qi layer, but I can’t break through to the Di Qi layer. The ten thousand things of creation originate from the same things. I control my own world, but it still needs to be improved. I don’t know what will happen in the future, I don’t know what my close ones will do in the future. However, I think I understand what to do now.”
Lin Feng stood up and walked into that world. That city was like another world, indeed. It was different from all the worlds in which the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts had lived in his previous lives. Of course, when cultivators became stronger, their lives became similar, no matter what world they lived in.
Someone came over to Lin Feng. It was the body the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts had in this life. He was in the sky, looking down at Lin Feng. “You still haven’t broken through to the Di Qi layer, even though you’ve experienced my lives?”
The King of the Ten Thousand Beasts didn’t understand. He had noticed Lin Feng’s physical strength, soul, and comprehension were incredible. He had an incredible sense of judgement, and couldn’t be mistaken about Lin Feng. Nevertheless, Lin Feng had experienced his lives, and still hadn’t broken through. As long as a cultivator remained determined, there was no reason for them not to break through.
However, Lin Feng was still at the top of the Huang Qi layer!
“King of the Ten Thousand Beasts, those are your lives. I studied them, but it was useless. My cultivation is different, I have my own life. Therefore, if I stay here, I won’t be able to become stronger. I hope you’ll let me leave this place,” Lin Feng said calmly.
“You want to leave the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts’ Territory?” repeated the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts. He didn’t understand how Lin Feng felt.
“Yes. After studying your lives, I had the impression you were me. Perhaps many people who come here admire and respect you, and I respect and admire you, too.
“However, I am still me. As you said, if I stand at the top, then nobody will humiliate me ever again. When I reach the top, I will come back and meet you again, I think,” Lin Feng said calmly.
The King of the Ten Thousand Beasts’ eyes glittered as he stared at Lin Feng. Lin Feng would come back after reaching the top? He was truly self-confident…
“Apart from me, only Suzerains and Fighting Phantoms can come in and out freely,” said the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts to Lin Feng calmly. “If you want to leave, you must become a Suzerain or a Fighting Phantom.”
“But those Suzerains have reached the peak of perfection. You won’t have the opportunity to reach the peak of perfection before fifty years, I think. And a Fighting Phantom… you’re just an emperor, if you want to win against some of the strongest Great Imperial Beasts and become the strongest one of a territory, it will be extremely difficult, as well. You’ll have to break through to the Di Qi layer first,” said the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts.
A Suzerain or a Fighting Phantom? He’s even more terrifying than I thought, thought Lin Feng. Maybe those who could go in and out freely could infiltrate the Continent of the Nine Clouds….
“How do I become a Fighting Phantom?” asked Lin Feng.
“I suggest you don’t bring about your own destruction. First, focus on breaking through to the Di Qi layer, and then you may have an opportunity,” said the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts.
“How do I become a Fighting Phantom?” Lin Feng asked again.
The King of the Ten Thousand Beasts looked amused, and smiled. “You’re in a world of heroes. If you want to become a Fighting Phantom, you have to make a public announcement and say you want to become a Fighting Phantom. Then, you’ll have seven days to rest, after which you’ll fight against a terrifying amount of of beasts. As long as they are great emperors, they can fight against you, and try to kill you. After three months, if you’re not dead, you’ll become a Fighting Phantom.”
“A public announcement.” Lin Feng frowned. That was even more terrifying than the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds!
“Can they join hands to fight against me?” asked Lin Feng.
“They cannot. But they can fight against you one after another as they wish, without waiting,” replied the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts.
Lin Feng took a deep breath. He couldn’t fight against groups, that was obvious… however, even one-on-ones, that was incredible. Lin Feng couldn’t imagine what it would be like. Qing Hai’s Roc, Heze’s Mahoraga… such people were terrifying. They were geniuses.
“What about Great Imperial Weapons?” asked Lin Feng.
“You can’t use them,” said the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts, shaking his head. “There have been only a hundred and some Fighting Phantoms in history, less than two hundred. Only one appears every thousand years or so, and they were all great emperors. Now, they’ve become my best assistants. They replace Suzerains who die.”
“That’s dangerous,” said Lin Feng, rather annoyed.
“Of course, when someone becomes a Fighting Phantom, they have lots of advantages. I even give them the army of a whole world,” said the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts coolly.
Lin Feng’s eyes glittered and he said, “I’ll go out and think.”
“Study my seven lives properly. When you reach the top of the Di Qi layer, you can try,” said the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts calmly. He waved his hand, and Lin Feng appeared outside of the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts’ inner city.
Lin Feng crossed the door through which he had come in.
Very quickly, he arrived back where he had started. He was wondering whether Bai Yu and the others had come out or not. They had probably experienced the King of the Ten Thousand Beasts’ lives as well…
Fighting Phantom, a public announcement, thought Lin Feng. He had no choice. It was the only solution to leave that place. He had to become strong first, he had no choice now…
The Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds had shaken the whole Continent of the Nine Clouds. After that, things had calmed down. Many new geniuses had started springing up, like bamboo shoots after a spring rain.
In Hell, there was a young man called Mo Zheng. He was insane. He had no enemy at the same cultivation level. He was a successor of the Ancient Demon Clan, and one of the grandsons of the Ten Yama Courts’ kings. He was also a member of the Hell Shrine; all his social statuses were dazzling. He went to the Celestial Country alone and killed many people. He wanted to go to the Continent of the Nine Clouds!
At the same time, in the Imperial Court of the Continent of the Nine Clouds, some geniuses were rising. In the Snow Clan, two young monarchs, a beautiful woman and a handsome young man, had appeared. It was said that they were mother and son!!!
