Swallowed Star - Chapter 713 Hong’s Encounters
Translator: Translation Nation Editor: Translation NationLuo Feng was stunned, his encounters were already not bad, having received guidance from Tian Shi palace’s leaders back then, and even speaking to undying knight. However, he didn’t expect his big brother Hong to have connections with Void gold master.
That was a being that created a primal chaos tablet. In Luo Feng’s imagination…the 52 creators of the tablets were the strongest 52 in the history of humanity. Even if his guess was wrong, it wouldn’t be too far off. And the Sky ruins tablet was among the top 10!
How powerful was that?
Humanity was a pinnacle race, and one of the top 10 amongst the entire pinnacle race. Such a being…it made others shudder within.
“What luck?” Luo Feng asked.
“Big brother.” Thunder god stared too. “I heard you talk about 52 tablets before. Those who are able to create those tablets are all absolute beings of countless eras, and you actually know such a being?”
In truth, Luo Feng, Hong and Thunder god were all ants in the universe. It was unbelievable that such ants knew such pinnacle beings.
“Let me explain that luck to you.” Hong smiled and exclaimed. “Back then when I took part in the special elites training camp, I was finally recruited into the Huge Axe Dojo’s core, also proceeding to primal chaos city to train. Didn’t I tell you before that I came out from the city?”
“Hm.” Luo Feng and Thunder god nodded.
“After leaving the city, I was placed to receive some nurturing from the Huge Axe Dojo.” Hong sighed. “And just yesterday, I felt the urge to go attempt the Fantasy island, after that attempt…everything happened.”
Luo Feng and Thunder god held their breaths.
With their big brother’s mental strength, how far could he go? However the consciousness pressure of Fantasy island was more terrifying as it got further, even their big brother shouldn’t be able to get too far.
“I went through each island after island.” Hong exclaimed. “It was very powerful, it got harder and harder as I got further, the consciousness pressure was terrifying…even for me. I was forced to my limits, finally making it to the 21st island with much difficulty. But, it’s a pity that I failed there.”
Luo Feng was stunned.
“Big brother, you actually failed?” Thunder god was curious.
“2nd brother, what do you know.” Luo Feng cursed, looking at disbelief at Hong. “You…you made it to the 21st level? Just one more step and you’d have finished it?”
“Hm.” Hong nodded.
“How’s that possible, it’s impossible.” Luo Feng shook his head. “The consciousness pressure gets more terrifying. At the 10th level, it’s already an undying’s consciousness pressure, and the 21st is that of a knight. Big brother, you are only at universe level, how’d you withstand the 20th island pressure?”
“3rd brother, let me ask you.” Hong asked. “Back then, when you were at universe level, how far did you make it?”
“I made it to the 10th island and failed.” Luo feng said.
“A sector lord pinnacle may not even pass the 9th island, and yet you passed it at universe level, why?” Hong asked. “If we disregard the illusions behind it, how’d you withstand the consciousness pressure?”
Luo Feng replied, “My willpower was the general, consciousness is the soldiers. With willpower leading, my heart was like a blade, naturally my consciousness and willpower condensed into stone and forcefully withstood the pressure.”
Hong laughed, “Against a tsunami of consciousness pressure, you know how to condense your willpower and consciousness into a stone. This is considered the 1st level in the 3 levels of mental states. However, the reason why you failed is because you had reached the limit of it, too firm and unyielding!”
“If your mental state training is at your 2nd brother’s level, who is able to adapt, then it would be different. With that level of mental state, against the tide of pressure, you’d be soft and gentle, hard when necessary, yet soft when it needs to be. Adapting to each situation, you’d naturally be able to pass the pressure.”
“Of course, reaching this 2nd level man and nature as one, the perfect harmony, it would only take you to maybe the 14th and 15th islands. The pressure gets more terrifying after that.”
“Even the 3rd level, limitless heart, encompassing all, the pressure was within my limits. Without a limit within, I naturally wouldn’t crumble from the pressure.” Hong shook his head and smiled. “However, it’s a pity that I had just broken through to the 3rd level, without it being fully perfect yet. Hence I failed at the 21st island.”
Luo Feng blinked hard.
His big brother was absurd.
“When I failed at the 21st island, the upper echelons of the Huge Axe Dojo immediately knew of it. This included Void gold master and the founder of the Huge Axe Dojo.” Hong exclaimed. “The great founder gave the order to lockdown this news. Hence even the knights didn’t know of this.’
Luo Feng nodded.
Passing the 20 islands at universe level, this was indeed a terrifying thing, it had attracted the attention of the great beings.
“The founder immediately accepted me as a disciple.” Hong smiled. “However, the great founder is still one of the greatest beings of humanity. He wouldn’t have the time to guide me, hence he arranged for Void gold master to teach me first and when I become an emperor level undying, only then would I have the right to go listen to his teachings. Only then would I be considered a true disciple of his. Right now I’m not considered his disciple at all.”
Luo Feng was completely stunned.
Back then during the genius competitions, even Bolan didn’t have the right to learn from the knights. Only Rong Jun managed to get a knight teacher, and he himself was under True Yan emperor. It could be seen that the knights were proud and were lazy to accept geniuses as disciples. He didn’t expect his big brother Hong to actually exceed everything.
He became a disciple of humanity’s strongest Huge Axe Dojo founder!
Even though it was just in name, it was already impressive.
At least now with Hong receiving guidance from Void gold master, and later on after he became an emperor level undying, he could move on to be taught by the founder himself.
“Big brother, Huge Axe Dojo founder. His tablet ranks top amongst the 52 tablets.” Luo Feng looked at him.
“It was simply because of my attempt at the Fantasy island.” Hong shook his head and smiled. “Even though the mental state training does nothing to your training, it’s afterall void and intangible. During a true battle, one relies on his spirit energy and genetic energy etc, the true tangible strength.”
“Even if my mental state is powerful, a sector lord can still kill me in just one move.”
“It acts as a support, only true strength is absolute.” Hong exclaimed.
Luo feng smiled.
Thunder god laughed.
“Stop acting.” Thunder god laughed.
“Seriously.” Luo Feng laughed too, “If Silver snow official’s Ji Shi’s family gets news of you becoming the founder’s disciple, receiving guidance from Void gold master, they’d go mad from regret!”
Hong laughed indifferently.
Hong had exceeded everything, his backing now was shocking.
“Void gold master had told me before.” Hong shook his head, “Comprehending the laws has great requirements on blending with them…some may comprehend hundreds to thousands of times faster than others, as their comprehension is deeper and clearer. It’s a pity my comprehension is only considered not bad. However it’s still hundreds to thousands of times lousier than absolute geniuses like you 3rd brother.”
“And with good mental state training supporting, I can at most raise it 2 to 3 times. However it still pales in comparison to geniuses.” Hong laughed. “Void gold master even said that my training time will be very long.”
Luo Feng and Thunder god listened intently.
“My mental state training is high, and almost all of the illusions have no effect on me. Hence…he designed a path for me to go towards, as an illusionist fighter.” Hong laughed. “Attacking physically along with illusions. This is the best route for me.”
“Illusionist fighter?” Luo Feng and thunder god were both stunned.
“Big brother.” Thunder god was shocked. “With your mental state at that level, if you use illusions, who’d be able to withstand it?”
Hong laughed, “Even though my position is high now, in order to protect me, everything has been confidential. I’m still an outermost member, even the knights don’t know about this.”
Luo Feng nodded, feeling happy for his big brother.
His two brothers’ talents were far from his own. They were most proficient in mental states, and his big brother used it to jump far ahead. However, a teacher is still but a teacher, for the disciple to get strong, he’d have to train one step at a time.
“2nd brother.” Hong looked at Thunder god.
“Hm?” Thunder god was stunned.
“I also recommended you to Void gold master, saying you’ve reached a high level in mental state training.” Hong laughed. “He’s already arranged for one of his disciples to accept you, he will be contacting you soon.”
Thunder god stared wide eyed.
Luo Feng couldn’t help but feel happy as he looked at his brothers.
Back then on earth, the 3 of them had very close levels in strength. However, after reaching universe level, his own improvements have been absurd. He was even capable of killing an undying now! However his two brothers fell behind by a lot…and yet, they all had their own encounters now.
“My two brothers, it’s not just you. There are the other geniuses of humanity, and even the absolute geniuses of the other countless races, some have strong teachers, and others with their own miraculous encounters, others talents simply heavenly.”
“I Luo Feng too will definitely exceed the countless humans and stand at the top.”
Luo Feng was burning with fighting spirit.
There was only meaning with competition. After being attacked by the bug clan, his perspectives had grown, and so have his ambitions!
Shi Huo knight?
Geniuses with absolute beings teaching them?
“I want to be stronger than all of them!” Luo Feng muttered.
The 3 brothers chatted within the yard.
“Big brother.” Luo Feng asked. “Why did the knights of the Huge Axe Dojo send all their undyings to buy earth, just what is that about? What is earth’s secret? What about earth has made all of the knights act so madly, you should know it right?”
“Hm.” Hong nodded, “This I do know.”
