The Strongest System - chapter-1026
A few days later…
Lin Fan had yet to wake up from his slumber. Right now, he was fighting
against the strongest enemy within the loops of reincarnation.
Within a patch of nothingness, Lin Fan stood upright. Before him was a
gigantic golden Buddha that was emanating a boundless might. The light at
the back of his head was exceptionally blinding.
It was like the scorching sun that shone down on the entire world,
purifying the Heaven and Earth.
This was the Light of Buddhist Nature, an intrinsic light which revelled
and grew in its own power. Everything about it was at a state of
completion, with no shortcomings and obstacles in its way: it was free.
If this were the true Infinite Buddha Ancestor, the Light of Buddhist
Nature would naturally be able to shine down on the entire world and
permeate through all worldly desires and lies. But, because this was the
Light of Buddhist Nature from the Boundless Future Buddha Lord, it was
filled with a crafty and sinister nature, placing its priority in
bewitching the masses.
“Your sins are deep, and you are shrouded by the fires of evil karma. At
the same time, you are caged by the Three Poisons: Desire, Anger, and
Foolishness. The only way for you to have hope for life is if you place
down the butcher’s knife and convert under me.” The Boundless Future
Buddha Lord spoke up.
That solemn face of his emitted a radiant golden gleam. This was
especially the case for that swastika symbol on his forehead, which
further emanated a boundless power.
The Boundless Future Buddha Lord could peer through the future and seize
control of it, dodging everything ranging from karma and retribution.
Within the Buddha race of the Endless Mainland, he was one of the top
three powerful beings.
“Bullsh*t! Yours Truly is filled with poison from my five viscera and six
bowels! Every single being in this entire world is tainted. That is what
nature is all about, what the true world is! Your sort of ‘seeing through
everything’ is nothing more than a form of escapism! And yet, you dare to
speak of teachings to Yours Truly?” Lin Fan roared out. At this moment,
Lin Fan was no longer expending his powers for this. He was just at an
optimum state of being right now.
The tremendous power gathered in thousands of mystic skills of martial
arts. In the blink of an eye, all of these mystic skills were deployed.
One after another, they turned into a series of mystic skill dragons that
coiled around the entire void.
A single palm to shock the Heavens!
A single palm to rattle the Earth!
“Yours Truly is the true Master of all!” Lin Fan roared out as he entered
a massacre against the Boundless Future Buddha Lord straightaway.
In this place, Lin Fan was omnipotent. But, it was the same case for the
Boundless Future Buddha Lord as well.
Maple Leaf City…
“To think that after all this time, we would return to where we came
from.” When Qiu Zhanyu looked at this familiar city, he could not help
but lament out.
“That’s right.” Jin Zhengu nodded his head. Everything here was ever so
At the city entrance, when the guards saw that it was the princess’
convoy that had returned, they naturally let down their guards.
“Eh? I remember that there were no victims of disasters or anything like
that in the Maple Leaf City back when we had left, right?” Qiu Zhanyu
looked out and saw many refugees with yellowed skin and tattered clothes
sitting on the city walls, their faces filled with a look of despair.
When Jin Zhengu caught sight of this, he turned around at Feng Yanyun
questioningly. He did not know just what had happened here.
“Hais…!” Feng Yanyun shook her head helplessly, “In the recent years,
there have had been many wars and stuff that happened in the Maple Forest
City. The areas at the borders of the city were all destroyed. These
people are all refugees who escaped over from there. I’ve already
arranged for people to take care of them. I’m sure we will be able to
settle them down before long.”
Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu were not people without knowledge of the world.
When they heard the words of Feng Yanyun, they understood the things as
well. The martial artists who were well versed in mystic skills of the
martial arts would be satisfied as long as they could achieve a higher
cultivation state. But, these commoners could only endure the descent of
calamity and tragedy.
The two of them exchanged glances with one another as they understood in
their hearts why the princess had wanted them to come over to the Maple
She wanted to seek their help.
At this moment, both of them hesitated. How could they do this? They had
to ensure that their Big Bro was safe! With that, how could they be
embroiled in this?
Thinking that, the both of them were stuck in a dilemma.
When Feng Yanyun caught sight of the expression of the both of them, she
spoke up, “The reason why I invited the both of you sirs back is that I
hope that you guys can lend us your assistance.”
When Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu heard that, their hearts froze. Indeed, it
was as they had thought.
“What should we do?” Jin Zhengu did not know what he should do at this
Maple Forest City was their hometown. Now that they were here and had
seen the state it was in right now, they knew that even if they wanted to
leave, no one would stop them. They would just harbor the unwillingness
in their own hearts.
Qiu Zhanyu did not say anything, but eventually nodded his head silently.
“Princess, we’ll agree to it. However, you must first get us to a
spacious place.” Qiu Zhanyu said.
The moment Feng Yanyun heard those words, she leaped with joy, “Sure,
That expression of hers was emotional beyond anything else. She knew that
the two men before her were truly willing to stay now!
Maple Forest City had True Immortal state powerful being. But, there was
only one of them, and it was this person beside her.
If there were three True Immortal state powerful beings in the Maple
Forest City, they would definitely have more confidence in their ability
to protect themselves!
And, the reason why Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu wanted a spacious place was
so that they could build an underground secret chamber to settle Lin Fan
down within. If there were truly any hiccups, they had to ensure that
their Big Bro was protected still.
Three years later…
Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu had already resided within the Maple Forest
City for three years now. At the same time, they had become the pillars
of support for the Maple Forest City.
Any intruders they met with were all sent retreating under the might of
Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu.
Even if they met a powerful being, both of them used their Supreme Grade
Immortal Weapon, the Heaven and Earth Net. Therefore, there was
practically no one who was their match.
Time and again, they sent the enemies retreating. At the same time,
staying in the Maple Forest City year after year had both of them growing
even deeper feelings toward this hometown of theirs.
At this moment, Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu looked at Lin Fan, who was
lying on a bed, and let out a disappointed expression.
“It has been three years, and Big Bro has yet to wake up.” Jin Zhengu
“Hais! If only we knew what was going on, that’d be nice. Big Bro is
really way too irresponsible! Couldn’t he at least tell us just how long
he was going to sleep for?” Qiu Zhanyu remarked as well.
“Let’s go. We don’t even know if we can make it back this time around at
all.” Jin Zhengu continued.
Qiu Zhanyu nodded his head before pressing down on a switch. With that,
the bed before him gradually descended into the ground deeper by each
moment until it disappeared from sight completely.
Qiu Zhanyu then took out broken rocks one after another from his storage
ring to seal the entrance of the secret chamber tightly, such that it
looked the same as the outside world’s surroundings.
If both of them did not lead the way, no one would be able to tell that
there was a secret chamber at this place.
After that, Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu flew into the void.
In the past three years, both of their cultivation states had improved
tremendously, and they were now True Immortal full cultivation state
beings. They were the two most powerful beings in the entire Maple Forest
City, and were respected by all the people here.
In the hearts of many commoners, Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu were their
At the Main Hall of the Maple Forest City…
With the help of Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu, Feng Yanyun had managed to
eradicate the issues they had within the city internally and taken over
as the ruler. As for Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu, they became the top
tiered existences of the city.
“Is everything settled properly?” Feng Yanyun’s face was filled with some
slight worries. But, when she looked at Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu, it was
still a face that had immense gratitude on it nevertheless.
It was because these two had helped the Maple Forest City to defend
against countless powerful beings back then that the city was able to get
to where it was today.
“Yes.” Qiu Zhanyu and Jin Zhengu nodded their heads.
Feng Yanyun knew that the Big Bro of these two had been deep in slumber
for a long time now. She had heard that the strength of this Big Bro of
theirs was extremely formidable. If he were to awaken, any issues would
However, she bore a skeptical attitude toward this fact.
At this moment, there was already a huge army that was gathered outside
the Maple Forest City. The aura of this army was far from ordinary,
bearing with them an extremely sharp Killing Qi.
This was a Killing Qi that had an extraordinary impact. It was absolutely
not something that ordinary people could possess.
In the depths of this army…
“Senior brother, you’re full of ideas indeed! To think that you would
seek out the Massacring Qi, Despair Qi, Fright Qi, Calamity Qi, and
Killing Qi from inciting the wars of mere mortals. With the five Qi
gathered, the ‘Five Qi True Demonic Skill’ we’ve been cultivating will be
able to break through to the next level, and reach a full cultivation
state!” A malevolent-looking man sniggered.
“Hmph! For all these years, we’ve caused so many wars to break out, and
have long gathered a robust amount of the Five Qi. From this day forth,
this Maple Forest City shall vanish into smoke entirely!”
“However, senior brother, I’ve heard that the two people from the Maple
Forest City possess an Immortal Weapon with them. Could it be that you
have found some way to counter them or something, senior brother?” The
“That’s of course. When the time comes, you will find out for yourself.”
