Tempered Immortal - Chapter 170: Dharma Possession
Just as Lin Xuan was frightened, the boy had already walked over slowly, shaking a folding fan in his hand, his mind idle.
“Junior brother, I’m here, how come you haven’t come to see me yet? “
Lin Xuan was shocked when he heard this. With such a big tone, this young man actually claimed to be the Sky Fiend Demon Lord’s senior brother, and his expression did not seem like a joke at all.
Although many cultivators were good at maintaining their youthful looks, no matter what, his appearance was too young.
“Hmm, why don’t you welcome your Brother Yu, or do you want me to drag you out?” After waiting for a long time, there was still no movement, the young man closed the folding fan, and his face flashed a stern expression, “Such a simple illusion and you want to block me?”
He opened his mouth and spat out a cloud of green gas, aiming it towards the cliff wall in front of him.
The green gas was not eye-catching, but its power was extraordinary. When the cliff wall came into contact with it, the ice and snow melted immediately. The illusion was broken in just a few minutes, and the exquisite pavilion appeared again in the air.
“This Cave Mansion is good, junior brother really knows how to enjoy life!”
The young man sneered, he flicked his sleeves slightly, and several strands of light flew out.
There was a loud bang.
Although a layer of Barrier was lit up outside the pavilion, it immediately shattered.
The sawdust flew around, and the upper side of the pavilion was teetering by the explosion.
A black cloud flew out from the inside, and as the young man saw it, a smug expression appeared on his face and he stopped the attack.
The smoke outside the dark clouds gradually dissipated, and a figure familiar to Lin Xuan appeared. It was the Sky Fiend Demon Lord.
“Old monster, you really found me here,” The Demon Lord stared at the young man in front of him, his expression was ugly.
“My dear junior brother, you have been hiding from your senior brother for so long, why didn’t you run away today?” On the contrary, the young man couldn’t hide his excitement, and the corner of his mouth showed a sneer as if he were a cat, who had caught a mouse.
“Junior brother? Old monster, when did you have a fellowship with me? In those days, you secretly plotted against Master, and killed your fellow sect members, if it wasn’t for Shen’s alertness, I would have already followed the footsteps of my junior brothers and sisters.” The Sky Fiend Demon Lord gnashed his teeth and looked extremely angry, but Lin Xuan still read a hint of fear from his expression.
Who is this young man, why is his cultivation base of the Foundation Establishment Stage, but is still the Demon Lord’s Senior Brother, and he even fears him?
“What’s the point in dwelling with the past?” The young man said faintly, “A wise man is someone who knows about current affairs, my junior brother. If you hand over the Heavenly Dust Pill, I will spare your life.”
“Spare my life?” The Sky Fiend Demon Lord laughed wildly, “Extreme Demon Venerable, we have been together for a hundred years. I am not a three years old kid, I won’t believe that promise unless my brain is broken. “
Extreme Demon Venerable!
These three words struck him like thunder, which shocked Lin Xuan hiding who was hiding in the dark. There was no other reason for this. This person was famous, he was the first expert of the Demonic Cultivators in You Prefecture, and the Demonic Dao’s only Nascent Soul cultivator. Although Lin Xuan has not seen him in person, he was no stranger to his portraits.
But this young man…Lin Xuan really couldn’t see any similarities with the Demon Venerable.
Unless it’s Dharma Possession.
The so-called possession of Dharma is a special kind of power that those who had reached the Nascent Soul Stage could use. But it wasn’t exactly the same. Simply put, one’s Soul attaches itself to the body temporarily.
But the ordinary possession or body seizure is a permanent encroachment, and Dharma Possession meant that when the soul left, the possessed person could be restored to normal.
Of course, there were quite a few restrictions. The specifics, Lin Xuan was not very clear. He only knew that this power is only available to the Nascent Soul Stage cultivators.
This explained why the appearance of this young man was completely different from that of the Extreme Demon Venerable, and that his cultivation base was only at the Foundation Establishment Stage.
After all, it wasn’t his own body. The soul and the physical body couldn’t be unified, so only a small part of one’s strength could be exerted.
“Old monster, I heard that you agreed with the several Nascent Soul Stage old monsters of the Righteous Path. That they won’t intervene in this matter, and only let cultivators of the Core Formation Stage come to find the trouble with me, and seize the Heavenly Dust Pill. Your appetite is insatiable, aren’t you afraid that they’d come looking for trouble later.”
“Hmph, you don’t need to worry me,” The Extreme Demon Venerable proudly smiled, “I’m now chatting and playing chess with the Righteous Path old monsters. I have never left for half a moment. Who said that I broke my word and came to fetch the Heavenly Dust Pill alone?”
“What, your body is still playing chess with the Immortal Cultivators. The one in front of me is…”The Sky Fiend Demon Lord’s expression changed and he gritted his teeth, “Could it be that you…”
“Yes, you can incarnate with your soul too junior brother, it’s just that it’s different from yours. I have a genuine second Soul.”
A second Soul? Lin Xuan can’t understand, but he also knew that it was definitely a great magical power of the Demonic Dao.
The Sky Fiend Demon Lord raised his head and laughed, “Old demon, I admit that you are indeed a genius. Compared with master back then, your Cultivation Techniques are far better.”
“As long as you know.” The Extreme Demon Venerable reached out his hand, “Then hand over the Heavenly Dust Pill.”
“Don’t even think about it.”
“What?”The Extreme Demon Venerable was taken aback, and then he smirked angrily, “Junior brother, you really want to die.”
“Old demon, you really are amazing. You even cultivated a second Soul, but the cultivation base of this second Soul is at most at the Core Formation Stage. And although you used your Soul for this Dharma Possession, your Spiritual Power is limited. Do you really think that with this Foundation Establishment Stage cultivator, you can defeat me?” There was a hint of ferocity on the face of the Sky Fiend Demon Lord, “It’s hard to say who will win, maybe you are looking for your own death?”
“Is that so?” After listening to this arrogant speech, the Extreme Demon Venerable was not angry, and his face did not have the panic of having his hidden card exposed. He was still calm and relaxed, “You will know if you try.”
Seeing the old demon’s expression, the Sky Fiend’s expression was uncertain. Whether the other party is bluffing or really has something to depend on is unknown. But he’s already here, and there is no other way but to fight.
Even if the old demon said that he would let him go if he gave him the Heavenly Dust Pill. This thief was very cruel, and he knew it very well from his experience a hundred years ago.
There was only one way, and that is to fight.
The Sky Fiend Demon Lord whispered an incantation and held his palms together in front of his chest, and then they slowly separated. Between his palms, a purple ball of light was pulled out.
The band of light was gorgeous and magnificent, and there was azure lightning lingering around it.
There were big drops of sweat on the Sky Fiend Demon Lord’s forehead, and his Spiritual Qi was injected into the ball of light between his palms.
An unbelievable thing happened. The ball of light changed at a speed that was visible to the naked eye. After only a few tens of seconds, it turned into a small violet sword.
The sword was about two feet long, sharp, and full of lightning, which made people dare not look at it.
Inadvertently smashing into the secrets of two old monsters, Lin Xuan naturally dared not to breathe, but only converged his aura and hid in the dense forest.
Seeing the magical powers of the Sky Fiend Demon Lord, Lin Xuan just came up with this term in his mind, but immediately rejected it. Although the experts at or above the Core Formation Stage could indeed solidify their Spiritual Qi, what was happening in front of him is obviously different. This sword was a genuine Magic Artifact.
“Huh, the Violet Cloud Thunder Sword!” The Extreme Demon Venerable put his hands behind his back, “Junior brother, not bad, you’ve actually produced such an amazing Magic Artifact. Among the Core Formation Stage cultivators in You Prefecture, I am afraid no one is your opponent. But do you think with such Spiritual Powers, you can compete with me who’s in the Nascent Soul Stage?”
“Old demon, you don’t need to scare me, the Nascent Soul Stage? Your second Soul’s cultivation base is definitely not in the Nascent Soul Stage, let alone with you using Dharma Possession.”
“Is that so?”
The Extreme Demon Venerable no longer said anything, folding his fan, his aura suddenly rose wildly, rising from the Foundation Establishment Middle-Stage.
Foundation Establishment Late-stage, Great Perfection, False Core Formation Stage, True Core Formation Initial Stage…
Lin Xuan was shocked and his mouth wide open. He just watched as the cultivation base of the old demon rose until it reached the Core Formation Middle-Stage.
How come? He didn’t know if it’s really him, even the face of the Sky Fiend Demon Lord was full of shock, which is too unexpected.
“Is it strange? Junior Brother, you’re still a bit young. Yes, under normal circumstances, by using Dharma Possession, your cultivation base would drop to a certain level, but there is a prerequisite. “
“Unless you don’t want to hurt the body that is being used as a substitute,” The Extreme Demon Venerable’s face was full of pride, “But I don’t care about this body’s life and death, and by using a technique of the Demonic Dao to forcefully draw this body’s power, you can easily draw out 100% of your cultivation base. How is it? Disappointing?”
“So what?” A look of fear flashed across the Sky Fiend Demon Lord’s face, but it quickly returned to its original state, “Old demon, even if that is the case, you are just in the Core Formation Middle-Stage, how will you deal with me?”
“Junior brother, now you are just bluffing, yes, before your body was destroyed, you had reached the realm of False Nascent Soul, but is this body now yours? Humph, this kid’s aptitude is not bad, but you’ve just possessed it. And you didn’t have the time to completely integrate it with your Soul. You can now only display the strength of the Core Formation Middle-Stage.”
