“In a towering rage, I rest under the whistling sound of rain.”

 

The sound of his solemn and serene voice could be heard as he took a few steps forward. With piercingly cold sword Qi Around his body . He punched the first war drum and immediately annihilated it without leaving a single trace.

 

It was only his first attack and the crowd was already stupefied. What powerful sword Qi.

 

“Gazing into the distance, looking up to the heavens, I utter a long and loud cry. My chest feels painful.”

 

Lin Feng’s loud and melodious voice resonated in the people’s ears. That song had caused them to imagine a hero holding his sword, in a towering in rage on the battlefield.

 

“BOOM!”

 

The another war drum was also destroyed without leaving trace.

 

“Thirty soldiers now with the dust and earth, the moon and the clouds stretching as far as can see.”

 

“The young man’s hair turn white, he is filled with sorrow.” continued Lin Feng and was unceasingly moving through the war drums. At this point, he had already destroyed four war drums making them beat.

 

He hadn’t even used much of the breath he had taken. He was unceasingly moving. His voice was getting louder and was filled with emotion.

 

“The humiliation of Duan Ren.”

 

“When the officials hate, they destroy.”

 

“On the back of the armored horses, going to the mountains armed with flowers.”

 

“BOOM!”

 

The fifth war drum was smashed and disappeared as dust in the atmosphere.

 

 

At that moment, the sword energy around Lin Feng’s body seemed as vast the sky, the earth and the clouds. It was in perfect harmony with his song, as if it could annihilate an entire country.

 

At the same time, an insane amount of sword force filled the air. It seemed like it was impossible to stop that force from increasing. It was surrounding the entire crowd.

 

“With magnificent ideals in my mind yet starvation filling my stomach, I eat their flesh. To settle my thirst, I drink their blood.”

 

Lin Feng’s hand seemed to transformed into a sword. It was followed by an incredible amount of force. He easily destroyed the sixth war drum. People’s hearts were pounding. he had already destroyed six war drums.

 

“Clearing from the beginning until the end, the mountains and lakes, moving towards the heavens.”

 

The lyrics of his song were extremely presumptuous and seemed to be challenging the heavens. Around the body of that arrogant young man was an endless burning brilliance which was emerging into the atmosphere. His fist, which looked more like a sword, moved through the air and its incredible white glow crashed onto the seventh war drum which was smashed into pieces again and disappeared without leaving trace. That young man looked incredibly natural and unrestrained.

 

At that moment, Lin Feng finally stopped moving. His clothes and long hair were fluttering in the air. He looked frivolous, natural and unrestrained. His beautiful song was resonating in people’s minds over and over.

 

“In a towering rage, I rest under the whistling sound of rain.”

 

“Gazing into the distance, looking up to the heavens, I utter a long and loud cry. My chest feels painful.”

 

“Thirty soldiers now with the dust and earth, the moon and the clouds stretching as far as can see.”

 

“The young man’s hair turn white, he is filled with sorrow.”

 

“The humiliation of Duan Ren.”

 

“When the officials hate, they destroy.”

 

“On the back of the armored horses, going to the mountains armed with flowers.”

 

“With magnificent ideals in my mind yet starvation filling my stomach, I eat their flesh. To settle my thirst, I drink their blood.”

 

“Clearing from the beginning until the end, the mountains and lakes, moving towards the heavens.”

 

With such inspiring and exciting lyrics, Lin Feng had risen to the heavens. He was heroic.

 

In comparison, the song that Yue Tian Chen had sung a moment before was, indeed, nothing compared to this. Compared with Lin Feng, he actually seemed like a nobody.


Everybody looked calm and solemn but their passion had been ignited.

 

“Alright, alright.” said Duan Wu Ya while standing up. His expression looked sharp. Such a singing talent was rare, especially coming from a teenager.

 

In comparison with Lin Feng, Yue Tian Chen had no artistic talent at all. At that moment, he just had the feeling that he was a buffoon trying to amuse Princess Duan Xin Ye.

 

Lin Feng had the spirit and composure of a hero.

 

Duan Xin Ye’s beautiful eyes were twinkling. Her facial expression was resplendent. Surprisingly, Lin Feng could sing in such a marvellous way.

 

Everybody, no matter if they were from the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue or the Celestial Academy, remained silent and was looking at that unconventional young man. The images of Lin Feng singing was replaying in their minds.

 

At that moment, only Yue Tian Chen had a hideous facial expression on his face. He had lost, that was a crushing defeat.

 

He had lost in both the artistic and strength, it was really a crushing defeat.

 

No need to talk about their artistic talent but as far as their strength was concerned, they had both made seven drums beat and had both used only one breath. Besides, Lin Feng had sung longer and in a louder voice. Lin Feng had made the hearts of the crowd start to pound in their chests. The difficulty of Lin Feng’s song was also higher. Besides, Lin Feng had not just broken the war drums but he had disintegrated them into powder. He had used powerful sword energy to turn them into dust. From the first to the seventh war drum, they had all been disintegrated without leaving trace.

 

Therefore, it was clear at first glance who had won and who had lost. A short time before, Yue Tian Chen thought he was above everyone else and at that moment, he was suffering a crushing defeat.

 

The fact that he had been humiliating Lin Feng remained fresh in everybody’s mind but Lin Feng had also caused him to lose face.

 

What Yue Tian Chen couldn’t stand at that moment is that Princess Duan Xin Ye was staring at Lin Feng with her beautiful eyes. There was a splendour and radiance in her expression which didn’t exist when she looked at other people. Duan Xin Ye had also been enchanted by Lin Feng. Yue Tian Chen couldn’t allow such a thing to happen, Duan Xin Ye was supposed to become his wife.

 

That beautiful woman also possessed the power of a blood spirit. Yue Tian Chen was determined to win. In the entire Xue Yue Country, he had to be the one to win the princess’ heart.

 

Even though he hadn’t won that battle, it didn’t mean that he was weaker than Lin Feng. If used all his strength, Yue Tian Chen was convinced that he was much stronger than Lin Feng.

 

At that moment, Lin Feng finally moved. He slowly turned around and looked at Yue Tian Chen. There was a densely sharp expression in Lin Feng’s eyes.

 

“No matter if it is acquired on the path of cultivation, from being born into a noble family or because of one’s natural talent, only those who have a high social status can marry a princess. This is despicable. Not knowing the vastness of the heavens because you overate your strength. You think that you can marry the princess, that is the truly the funniest thing in the world.” said Lin Feng.

 

Lin Feng paused and then continued in a cold tone: “You criticize me for my social status, I admit that I don’t have a higher social status than you but you also say that I am weak and a nobody. I would like to ask you a question, apart from being born into a noble family, what else do you have? You do not know how large the world is, you are truly ignorant.” Lin Feng’s words were sharp and poignant which made an ice-cold expression appear on Yue Tian Chen’s face.

 

“A family’s social standing depends on your luck, you cannot change it. Cultivation is something you can change and create yourself. You can decide to become stronger and to improve your abilities, even if you don’t have a high social status. If you decide to always surpass your own abilities, you can reach the clouds. I am sure that such people are not affected by their low social status anymore. Once they have reached the clouds, they despise those who, in the past, used to arrogantly look down on them. Only those who are that strong have the power to be arrogant.”

 

Lin Feng continued speaking: “However, you are part of the other category, relying on your family’s social standing. Besides, because you have a high social status, you think that you are true perfection. You are not brave and consider everyone else beneath you. You are only suited to being a big fish in a little pond. If you cannot break free from that way of thinking then the best you can do is rely on the social standing granted to you by your clan, you are doomed. People will definitely surpass you. A clan with such people is doomed to decline and disappear sooner or later.”

 

When the people in the crowd heard Lin Feng’s words, their hearts were racing. Those who didn’t have a high social status had to be ambitious and brave. That’s right, if they were determined to reach the clouds, sooner or later, they could. They would manage to surpass those who possessed everything in the continent. In the end, they would end up despising those who, in the past, despised them.

 

Concerning the noble cultivators, they were dumbstruck after hearing what Lin Feng said. They didn’t like to hear what Lin Feng was saying but they had to admit that he was right. His analysis was extremely deep and precise, besides, it was justified. Indeed, if they didn’t bravely move forward, even if they had an illustrious status in a noble clan, sooner or later, their clan, with such useless people, would disappear.

 

The crowd was amazed by Lin Feng’s words. He was so young and could understand things so well. He was way too mysterious.

 

“That boy, even though he doesn’t have a high social status, will have unlimited opportunities in the future.” said Duan Wu Ya who was starting to think that Lin Feng would actually really be a good match for his sister, Duan Xin Ye.

 

While the whole crowd was thinking about what Lin Feng had just said, Yue Tian Chen’s facial expression had reached the ultimate degree of ugliness. Even if everything that Lin Feng had said was justified and true, he had been saying all these things on an arrogant tone in front of everyone else, humiliated a member of the Yue Clan!

    What the heck was that?

  20. Assisonfire   •  

    How can one make song while just slamming and destroying a drum to the point that it dissolved?
    If it was done so, wouldn’t that only produce one beat? And if so there was only seven beats, and he sang a full song out of it. I…uh…what…
    Sure enough the drums on yun hai sect was fine because they were not actually destroyed or cracked or whatever, but damn i can’t just imagine what is going on in this “test”, and my brain kind of died.
