The Catastrophe (2)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Mu Feng and the rest of the messengers knew what was going to happen. They were a few hundred miles away from the Tianwen clan, fighting against the ice monsters that emerged under the cloak of snow and ice. These ice monsters were strong, plunging many lives into the abyss of death and misery. Many practitioners had, unfortunately, become their victims, as the monsters had completely absorbed their power. It was a rather tough fight, so all four messengers had to work together.
The fight between the ice monsters and the messengers was reaching its climax when they saw the incoming catastrophic red clouds. It came as a shocking sight.
Mu Feng could not hold back his frustration. “I wonder who is going to undergo the catastrophe at this perfect timing.” Other than working as the guardians of the Lord, the four messengers actually had another duty to fulfill, which was to protect anyone who was undergoing the catastrophe before advancing to level ten.They had to offer their protection personally to provide against any misfortune.
The catastrophe was, after all, very life-threatening. It was also known as the Celestial Catastrophe.
Forget about becoming a celestial being, slight negligence even before advancing to level ten would cost one’s life. He or she could be struck by lightning. Also, advancing to level ten would require the consumption of some specific herbal pills. Before one was going to advance to level ten, he or she would have to take the pills from the messenger and mention in passing that the catastrophe would soon be coming, so the four messengers could get themselves prepared.
This time, no one mentioned anything about getting the pills from the messengers. How could one face the catastrophe so suddenly?
Mu Feng could not care less about the ice monsters anymore. “The clouds seem to be going towards the direction of the Tianwen clan. Mu Lei, you and I should go and take a look. Mu Dian and Mu Yun, both of you should stay and fight!”
Mu Lei responded, “Could it be Long Siye? His Kung Fu is the highest among them all. If it is him, I think we should notify the Lord about it.”
Mu Feng looked up into the sky and muttered, “There is no need to notify. The Lord is already on her way!”
He saw a gleam of seven-colored rays flashing across the sky, like a falling star heading towards the Tianwen mountain. Only the Lord possessed such radiance.
Throughout the year, although Gu Xijiu’s temperament had become gradually unapproachable, her Kung Fu had become stronger day by day. Mu Feng still remembered how Gu Xijiu used to be before she entered the Buddha Fire Land. Before, her Kung Fu was not of the highest quality yet. However, her transformation after that was remarkable. Her Kung Fu had significantly increased.
Her Kung Fu used to be at level ten, but now, her strength was unfathomably strong. If the Lord was going to look into the situation personally, then the four messengers would no longer be needed so urgently. They should take care of the ice monsters instead.
All four of them then continued to lay siege to the ice monsters. After half an hour, they finally got rid of the ice monsters. The fight left them breathless. A streak of blood-red lightning momentarily illuminated the sky and turned into a roar of thunder. It struck the Tianwen Mountain, and they could hear a single sharp crash of thunder. All four of them were utterly shocked.
“The catastrophe is happening to the man!” Mu Feng shouted out loud and dashed to the scene as quickly as he could.
The catastrophe had officially begun. Streaks of lightning flashed across the sky continuously. From afar, Mu Feng could clearly see that a man was hurled to the winds. Countless streaks of lightning continued to strike the man.
The man was enveloped in a faint circle of seven-colored rays. Apparently, the Lord had offered her help to him.
“The overlord of Tianwen clan is going through the catastrophe! He is advancing to level ten!”
“Will he finally become a celestial being?”
“It is hard to say. Some people chose to stay in the mortal world even after they have achieved level ten.”
“However, I heard that most people choose to ascend to heaven.”
“He would only ascend to heaven if he has no attachment to earth, right? However, Overlord Long has a lot to be concerned about.”
Many practitioners came to the scene upon hearing the news. They gathered around at the hills of the Tianwen mountain and glanced upward nervously while engaging in a heated discussion.
