Martial God Asura Chapter 2073-2074
Chapter 2073 – Immortalization Road
At that moment, Qiushui Fuyan was placed in a difficult situation. She knew Chu Feng's personality extremely well. As such, she was afraid that Chu feng would put himself into danger.
However, it was precisely because she knew Chu Feng's personality that she knew that she would not be able to make Chu feng change his mind. Thus, she said to Chu Feng, "Follow me."
After Chu Feng and Qiushui Fuyan left, the others present all stood up and followed after them.
Being led by Qiushui Fuyan, Chu Feng soon arrived at the so-called Immortalization Road.
It was a special gate. Even though the gate appeared to be constructed of carved stones, it was actually formed with a very powerful spirit technique.
Most importantly, although the gate did not appear to be special, it gave off a dense amount of the Ancient Era's aura like Qiushui Fuyan had said.
The moment Chu Feng saw the Immortalization Road, Chu Feng started to frown deeply.
Even though it was only a spirit formation gate, Chu Feng was able to tell how powerful the creator of the spirit formation gate was merely by looking at the spirit formation gate.
Chu Feng's strength had advanced by leaps and bounds after this many years had passed. Not only had Chu Feng become a Martial Emperor-level expert, he had also became a Dragon Mark Royal-cloak World Spiritist and was a major character in the Holy Land of Martialism. But even Chu Feng felt a sensation when he stood before the Immortalization Road's entrance gate. That was, the sensation of being small.
"Chu Feng, let me accompany you in there," Qiushui Fuyan said to Chu Feng.
"There's no need for that. It would do for me to go in there alone. Everyone, do not follow me in," After Chu Feng finished saying those words, he stepped onto the Immortalization Road.
At that moment, the expressions of the crowd all turned stiff. They were worried about Chu Feng and wanted to follow him in. Merely, they didn't want to go against Chu Feng's desire either. That was why they were hesitating right now.
After a moment of hesitation, Lady Piaomiao said, "Ya Fei and them possessed a special relationship with Chu Feng. He possesses a knot in his heart that was originally capable of being undone by Ya Fei and the others that disappeared. However, now, he can only rely on himself. As such, it might be better that he enter alone."
"But, inside the Immortalization Road is…" Qiushui Fuyan as well as the others present were still very worried.
"Everyone, have you all forgotten about little friend Chu Feng's talent? It has been many years now. You all have managed to make improvements to your strength. As such, how could he have not?"
"It might even be possible that the current little friend Chu Feng is already a Martial Emperor," Lady Piaomiao said.
"I think it's possible that Chu Feng is a rank nine Martial King. As for Martial Emperor, that's a bit too far-fetched."
"After all, even Huangfu Haoyue said that it was very difficult to reach a breakthrough to the Martial Emperor realm. If it wasn't for the treasures that had been discovered on the Immortalization Road, he would not have had the opportunity to attempt the breakthrough either."
"Although Chu Feng's talent is extremely high, it remains that he's very young," Qiu Canfeng and the others said. They all felt that Chu Feng was most definitely stronger than them. However, they did not believe him to be a Martial Emperor.
Although it has been several years since Chu Feng had left, to people that had cultivated for hundreds of years like them, several years simply could not amount to much at all. At Chu Feng's level, to be able to reach peak Martial King in several years would already be a miracle. As for becoming a Martial Emperor, that was simply impossible.
Most importantly, Chu Feng had personally said that he would be no match for Huangfu Haoyue if Huangfu Haoyue were to successfully reach a breakthrough.
Thus, from those words, the crowd was able to deduce Chu Feng's cultivation to be still at the Martial King level.
"That's also precisely the reason why he should enter the Immortalization Road. Perhaps he might be able to obtain benefits from it. It might even be possible for his cultivation to increase. Thus, we should let him enter," Lady Piaomiao said.
"That's true," At that moment, the crowd's nervousness was eased. Although the depths of the Immortalization Road were extremely dangerous, they possessed a special sort of power. As they all knew how strong Chu Feng's comprehension was, they felt that Chu Feng might really be able to obtain a harvest from entering the Immortalization Road.
Right at that moment, a loud explosion sounded from afar. Following that, a dazzling blaze soared into the sky.
When that blaze appeared, an enormous oppressive sensation followed suit. That sort of oppressive sensation was something that the people present had never felt before.
After sensing that oppressive sensation and seeing that dazzling blaze, the people present all revealed overjoyed expressions.
One by one, they soared into the sky and began to fly toward that blaze.
Soon, the blaze and that oppressive might started to dissipate. Then, a man appeared in their midst.
That man was Huangfu Haoyue.
At that moment, Qiushui Fuyan was wild with joy. Unable to contain herself, she asked, "Haoyue, you've succeeded?"
"Mn, this is Emperor-level martial power. I have successfully broken through to the Martial Emperor realm."
"But…" Huangfu Haoyue started to hesitate.
"What's wrong?" Qiushui Fuyan and the others all asked in a deeply concerned manner.
"I am able to sense Emperor-level martial power now. Merely, the amount that I can make use of is extremely limited. I keep feeling that I am unable to make use of the most concentrated and pure Emperor-level power."
"In other words, although I am able to use Emperor-level martial power, I am unable to use the actual Emperor-level martial power," Huangfu Haoyue said with a frown.
"Although you've broken through to Martial Emperor realm, it remains that you're only a rank one Martial Emperor. It is normal that you are unable to completely grasp Emperor-level martial power," Taikou said.
"That's right. The most important thing is that you've become a Martial Emperor. Now, we no longer have to be afraid of that bunch of Blood Qilins," Qiushui Fuyan said.
Upon mentioning the Blood Qilins, the crowd present all revealed expressions of hatred. They were impatient to have Huangfu Haoyue teach that bunch a lesson.
Merely, at that moment, Qiu Canfeng's expression changed. He involuntarily looked to Xue Xiyue who stood beside him.
"Everyone, although Huangfu Haoyue has become a Martial Emperor, the Blood Qilins still cannot be looked down upon."
"Earlier, I went to the Everlasting Sea of Blood to scout things out. At that place, I felt an extremely frightening oppressive might. Although I was unable to ascertain things at that time, I am able to do so now. I am sure that the Blood Qilins' Clan Chief has also broken through to the Martial Emperor realm. The reason for that is because that oppressive might felt exactly the same as the one that you brought us," Xue Xiyue said sternly.
"What? The Blood Qilins' Clan Chief also broke through to the Martial Emperor realm? It is no wonder the Blood Qilins are acting so arrogantly. In the letter they sent us yesterday, they demanded that we leave the Misty Peak immediately. Else, they would come and kill all of us with their army," Qiushui Fuyan said with a frown.
Yesterday, Qiushui Fuyan had received a letter. After seeing the contents of the letter, she had thought the Blood Qilins to be extremely arrogant and conceited. However, after hearing what Xue Xiyue said, and considering the time when Xue Xiyue had returned to the Misty Peak and the timing of the letter, she felt that it was very likely that the Blood Qilins' Clan Chief had managed to break through to the Martial Emperor realm, and that they had sent the letter after he had reached a breakthrough.
Now that she thought about it, that was simply no letter. Instead, it was a written challenge.
"What's there to fear? Haoyue has also became a Marital Emperor now. Even if that Blood Qilins' Clan Chief is also a Martial Emperor, he would only have the same level of cultivation as Haoyue."
"If they wish to come, then let them come. This would serve as a perfect opportunity to settle them. I'll give the order to have our Crippling Night Demon Sect's army gather here," Qiu Canfeng said.
"That's right. We not only have the Martial Emperor senior Huangfu Haoyue here, there's also junior brother Chu Feng."
"My junior brother Chu Feng was able to defeat even those fellows from the Holy Land of Martialism back then. How could he possibly fear a bunch of fish that overestimates themselves?" Chun Wu said in an immensely proud manner.
Even though the crowd all felt that Chu Feng was not a Martial Emperor, Chun Wu was still extremely confident in Chu Feng.
Chapter 2074 – Keep Chu Feng In The Dark
"Chun Wu, what did you just say? You said that Chu Feng has returned?" Hearing what Chun Wu said, Huangfu Haoyue's expression took a huge change. Overwhelmed with excitement, he grabbed Chun Wu.
"Haoyue, I nearly forgot to mention this to you. Chu Feng has indeed returned. He just returned today," Qiushui Fuyan said with a smile.
"That's great. Where is Chu Feng now?" I'll go see him," After verifying that Chu Feng had returned, Huangfu Haoyue revealed an overjoyed expression. His appearance was even more excited than when he had reached a breakthrough in his cultivation.
"Little friend Chu Feng found out about what happened to Ya Fei and the others. Thus, he has entered the Immortalization Road to search for clues regarding Ya Fei and the others," Qiushui Fuyan said.
"That, it's understandable," After hearing that, Huangfu Haoyue's smile turned stiff. Not only did he stop smiling, he revealed an expression of worry. He said, "If it is determined that Ya Fei and the others are no longer in this world, little friend Chu Feng will definitely be feeling extremely hurt."
Hearing those words, many of the crowd all grew silent. They all know that Chu Feng possessed a special relationship with those three women. Furthermore, they were all able to tell that Chu Feng felt guilt toward them.
"Haoyue, this is perfect timing. The banquet that we held for Chu Feng's return is still here. We'll go and replenish it so that we can celebrate your breakthrough to Martial Emperor," Qiu Canfeng said. The other people present also expressed their approval of Qiu Canfeng's idea.
To them, today could be said to have brought happiness twofold. If they did not enjoy themselves with wine, they would truly have wasted this happy day.
"Everyone, Haoyue just reached a breakthrough. Even though his cultivation has greatly increased, it remains that if the situation is truly as Xue Xiyue said, that the Blood Qilins' Clan Chief has already broken through to the Martial Emperor realm, they could arrive at our Misty Peak at any moment now."
"If we were all drunk at that time, it would be very inappropriate," Lady Piaomiao said.
"What mother says is very true. Furthermore, Haoyue just reached a breakthrough. As such, he must properly rest," Qiushui Fuyan added.
"That's true. It would not be too late for us to celebrate after we take care of the Blood Qilins," Qiu Canfeng and the others nodded.
Thus, the crowd scattered. Although the crowd had scattered, Qiu Canfeng and many others remained. They stood guarding the entrance to the Immortalization Road.
They all had a lot of things that they wished to tell Chu Feng. Furthermore, they were extremely worried for Chu Feng's safety and state of mind.
However, as they did not wish to disturb Chu Feng, they could only guard the entrance and wait for Chu Feng's return.
Originally, Huangfu Haoyue had wanted to go there to wait for Chu Feng's return too. However, as there were already so many people waiting for Chu Feng, and Qiushui Fuyan had told him to rest, he ended up returning to his and Qiushui Fuyan's residence.
"Haoyue, although you've become a Martial Emperor, I am still worried should you fight against that Blood Qilins' Clan Chief," Just then, Qiushui Fuyan discarded her usual image and laid herself on Huangfu Haoyue's bosom lovingly.
Although she was the current master of the Misty Peak and held enormous power, she remained only Huangfu Haoyue's wife when before him. As such, the only thing in her mind was worry for her husband.
"Truth be told, if the Blood Qilins' Clan Chief has also broken through to Martial Emperor, it will truly be hard for me to attain certain victory when fighting against him."
"After all, when I fought against him before, I was unable to attain any superiority in the battle. However, as matters stand, we have no other option. We must fight with our backs to the river," Huangfu Haoyue said.
"How about we go and call Chu Feng out? With how powerful Chu Feng's talent is, and how he managed to return from the Holy Land of Martialism, he might also be a Martial Emperor. If the two of you were to join hands, then, regardless of how powerful that Blood Qilins' Clan Chief might be, he would still be no match for the two of you," Qiushui Fuyan said.
"Fuyan, you've just said it yourself. Chu Feng might be a Martial Emperor. However, it's also possible that he might not be a Martial Emperor."
"If Chu Feng is a Martial Emperor, then it would be great. However, if he isn't a Martial Emperor, we would be throwing him into this battle that did not originally concern him for no reason," Huangfu Haoyue said.
"But, Chu Feng is no stranger," Qiushui Fuyan said.
"Indeed. Chu Feng treats us like relatives. However, that is precisely why we shouldn't involve him. If he knew about this matter concerning the Blood Qilins, he would definitely not leave things be. Instead, he would fight alongside us against the Blood Qilins."
"But, you should know about Chu Feng's true identity. His identity is extremely exceptional. If something were to really happen to him, and his father were to find out about it, none of us would be able to escape the blame," Huangfu Haoyue said solemnly.
"If something were to happen to Chu Feng, it would mean that the Blood Qilins would have defeated us. At that time, we would not be alive. When we're already dead, what responsibility is there to fear?"
"I know that you just do not wish to involve Chu Feng. You are worried about him, no?" Qiushui Fuyan said.
At that moment, Huangfu Haoyue nodded his head. Then, he said, "Chu Feng has already done enough for us. Chu Feng's contribution cannot go unnoticed in how we were able to defeat the Immortal Execution Archipelago back then and obtain the status of being the overlords of the Eastern Sea Region."
"And now, Chu Feng has just returned. If he were to find out that our status as overlords was in imminent danger, what would he think of us? Wouldn't we, his seniors, be too useless?"
"Haoyue, I understand," At that moment, Qiushui Fuyan finally truly understood what Huangfu Haoyue had in mind. It turned out that while it was true that Huangfu Haoyue was worried for Chu Feng, he felt ashamed to ask for Chu Feng's assistance right after his return.
After all, this was the Eastern Sea Region. Huangfu Haoyue was the strongest individual in the Eastern Sea Region. As such, he should be the one to personally take care of this matter. He could not rely on Chu Feng since, after all, Chu Feng was only a member of the younger generation.
"It's all the fault of that bunch of damned Blood Qilins. Exactly where did they obtain that treasure that allowed them to become this powerful in a short few years? Even when our Misty Peak joined hands with the Crippling Night Demon Sect, we are still unable to take care of them," Qiushui Fuyan said with a frown.
"Their treasure is extremely powerful. It is precisely because of that that we cannot delay this matter. Sooner or later, their strength will surpass our own," Huangfu Haoyue said.
"But, judging by the time, if the Blood Qilins truly plan to attack our Misty Peak, they should be arriving very soon. Even if we wish to conceal this matter from Chu Feng, we may not be able to do so," Qiushui Fuyan said worriedly.
"Indeed. Soon, the Misty Peak will become a battlefield. Thus, Fuyan, there is a matter that I wish to request of you," Huangfu Haoyue grabbed Qiushui Fuyan's arms. With a very serious tone, he said, "After Chu Feng comes out of the Immortalization Road, regardless of what sort of excuse you must use, you must bring Chu Feng away from here. While we can die, Chu Feng absolutely cannot."
"But…" Hearing those words, Qiushui Fuyan's eyes turned moist. Before imminent battle, how could she have the heart to have her husband and relatives go and fight with their lives while she herself survived?
Right at that moment, worried shouts from a Misty Peak's elder sounded from outside. "Milord, Milady, the situation's bad!!!"
"Blood Qilins have appeared and surrounded our Misty Peak from all directions. We are unable to determine their numbers. However, it's an enormous amount."
"We fear… we fear…"
"We fear that the Blood Qilin's entire army has arrived to attack us!!!"
