Ren Qing Kuang was looking at Lin Feng and only thinking of how ambitious and brave the young man was. Since he was following Lin Feng, he had already wondered if Lin Feng would make the Chi Xie troops into a fearsome army.
He was hoping that Lin Feng would be able to carry out this extremely difficult task in the future. However in a very short time, Lin Feng had managed to astonish him by bringing a hundred and twenty thousand pills which could make thirty thousand cultivators instantly breakthrough. What he had been trying to do for many years. Lin Feng had done in a very short time due to his hard work and determination.
Besides Lin Feng was resolute, he had immediately handed the pills over, giving Ren Qing Kuang a huge responsibility.
“Uncle Ren, Mister Chi and Mister Huo will help you to break through to the Xuan Qi layer. Our forces will become much stronger that way.” Said Lin Feng. The three officers were dumbstruck, Xuan Qi layer!
Who would refuse becoming incredibly stronger?
“Mister Huo, Mister Chi.” Said Lin Feng while turning to the two old men. He saw that the two old looked irresolute yet they immediately said: “We will find a solution.”
“Alright.” Said Lin Feng. Immediately after, he looked at Ren Qing Kuang again and said: “Uncle Ren, Uncle Feng, Uncle Lei and you are experienced officers. You obviously don’t need me to teach you anything. I just want to say that these days, even though you are not on a battlefield, our troops cannot lose their fighting spirit and ardour. No matter if we are talking about their determination or their courage, they need to continue on the path of blood. They need to keep fighting and continue facing danger. Only that way, will they be able to increase their cultivation. After I leave, the troops must regularly go out on missions to practice. Besides, they will potentially gain extra battle experience. We cannot show mercy. If they don’t face danger during their breakthroughs, they will never benefit and become truly strong.”
These troops had all survived previous wars. After all their previous experiences, Ren Qing Kuang obviously hoped that none of them would die. Lin Feng had to remind him that if they kept the troops in a safe and nurturing environment, would they remain as battle hardened warriors?
“Alright.” Said Ren Qing Kuang while nodding. He understood what Lin Feng meant. It was already clear to him. Lin Feng was right to remind him of what made their army so powerful. If they protected their army in the city and didn’t give them the opportunity to fight any battles. They would become docile and their cultivation would suffer. These people were fearless even when facing death, these Chi Xie troops had to remain in a constant state of battle!
“Uncle Ren, is there anything you need to discuss with Mister Huo and Mister Chi? I want to go and practice in seclusion now. After that, I will leave Yangzhou City and go to the Imperial City” said Lin Feng to Ren Qing Kuang and the old men. He saluted them and immediately left. He first went to see if everything was ok with Meng Qing in caring for Yun Xi. Then, he went to practice.
His surplus souls technique was already extremely powerful. He could use his soul to create multiple purple snakes. He could kill cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer using his purple dragon. That kind of unique ability was a life saving ability for Lin Feng. He needed to practice the technique in order to make even more surplus souls appear. He needed a stronger soul to control even more of his spirit’s power. At the same time, he needed to develop himself to become even stronger.
Outside of the Imperial City, it was extremely crowded and lively. The crowd was like a river of people.
At Qing Xin’s restaurant, many people were leaning against the banister and looked down at the river of people which moving like a dragon through the streets. All sorts of comments were filling the air.
“Even though Duan Lie isn’t a direct member of the Imperial family and hasn’t joined the core of the Imperial City, his status is still extraordinary.”
“Indeed. Duan Yu’s wedding will probably be extremely majestic.”
In the restaurant, many people were unceasingly whispering. One topic was occupying everybody’s conversations, Duan Yu’s wedding.
At that moment, in the restaurant, only one table was drawing everybody’s attention because on that table there was two incredibly beautiful women. One of them had her face covered with a fine veil. That silhouette made many people feel speechless.
Besides, the other girl was very beautiful. Her eyes, which were bright and clear, were filled with endless light. She looked outstanding, especially her voluptuous chest, which looked like two mountains separated by a valley. She was extremely alluring.
Besides, with these two beautiful girls, there was also a young man. Everybody in the crowd envied him to the extent that, some people were even glaring at him with killing intent. Some people were extremely jealous and wished they could be with these two women.
“Even though Duan Yu has a blood spirit and has a noble beauty, surprisingly there are two even more beautiful women here in Qing Xin’s Restaurant. Duan Yu will marry a genius of the Imperial City while, unfortunately, there are two such beautiful women who will end up with such a tiny little boy.” Said someone in the crowd extremely loudly so that everybody in the restaurant could clearly hear.
“Indeed. Some people say that Wen Ren Yan, was a genius in the Yun Hai Sect. After the extermination of the sect, Duan Tian Lang found out that that Wen Ren Yan had high natural talent and was immediately been interested in him. Wen Ren Yan made a wise decision and joined the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue. It was a brilliant move from his part. If he had stayed with the Yun Hai Sect and remained the most prodigious disciple, his prestige would have been limited, but by joining the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue, he will always have opportunities to show his strength in the Imperial City. It was said that Wen Ren Yan has already broken through to the seventh Ling Qi layer and is monstrously strong. Besides, his blue bamboo spirit has become abnormally strong. Coupled with Duan Yu’s blood spirit, it is definitely a perfect match.
“How could Wen Ren Yan be considered as a genius of the Yun Hai Sect? Back in the days, the real genius was Lin Feng. At the moment when the Yun Hai Sect was being exterminated, every outstanding disciple betrayed the sect except for Lin Feng, whose heart was as unmoving as a mountain. He stuck to his principles. His destiny will definitely be extraordinary.” Said a fifteen year old cultivator contradicting the other person who had just arrogantly spoken out.
Even though Lin Feng was only in the Imperial City for half a year, many people still worshiped Lin Feng. The facts that he had set a city on fire and crossed into another country to save the princess was still the topic of people’s conversations. They admired and idolized Lin Feng. They hoped that they would be able to walk on the same path as Lin Feng and become one of the great cultivators of Xue Yue,
“You don’t understand anything.” Said the cultivator who had just been contradicted.
He said, sounding cold and detached: “Wen Ren Yan is a genius, he is a genius of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue! Even though he has only broken through to the seventh Ling Qi layer, he still has amazing combat ability in real battle, he is extremely strong. He can defeat cultivators of the eighth Ling Qi layer. Concerning Lin Feng, nobody even knows where he went. Maybe he is already dead. How can you even compare a dead man with Wen Ren Yan!”
“Stop talking shit. How could Lin Feng die?” Shouted the other one furiously.
“I said that Lin Feng is probably dead by now, what does that have to do with you? Now go wash out your filthy mouth.” Said the arrogant one sounding ice cold, releasing some his Qi. He was trying to show off his strength in front of the two beautiful young girls.
“Wen Ren Yan could never even touch the shadow of Lin Feng, you’re the one who’s talking shit!” Replied the young cultivator sounding ice cold. Even though his interlocutor was also extremely strong, he was still arguing.
At that moment, the beautiful and voluptuous young woman next to the handsome young man smiled and said in a low voice: “I would never have thought that there would be people who worshiped and adored you so much, that they wouldn’t even care about the consequences when defending you.”
Lin Feng smiled wryly and scratched his head. He had the strange feeling that he had become older and gained a great responsibility.
Since the moment that the Yun Hai Sect had been annihilated until that moment, less than two years had passed. Those days, Lin Feng wasn’t even eighteen years old yet was already worshipped by a vast majority of people.
Of course, who else had managed to achieve so much in the short period of two years? He had nearly died so many times. All of his adventures were legendary.
Lin Feng had the feeling that he had already spent a long time in this world.
“I would have never thought that Wen Ren Yan would marry Duan Yu, that’s amusing.” Said Lin Feng while smiling indifferently. It also seemed that the tension between Lin Feng and Wen Ren Yan had stayed the same over time.
At that moment, the person who was criticizing Lin Feng, was releasing his Qi and it was becoming more cold and violent. He walked towards the young person and said coldly: “Reckless little boy, since you cannot shut your filthy mouth, I will shut it for you.”
That person started walking towards the young cultivator, his hand shot straight towards the young man, which made the young man’s face change drastically. He was blankly staring at the hand that was rushing towards him.
A whistling sound spread in the atmosphere and the punch was completely stopped. The man then turned his head and shouted: “Who dares?”
When he finished talking, he slowly turned around and immediately looked at Lin Feng who was walking towards him.
“You are also a reckless little boy.” Said that person while looking at Lin Feng and smiling coldly.
“I don’t want to kill you, I just wanted to tell you to shut your filthy mouth.” Said Lin Feng indifferently.
“Me? A filthy mouth?” Said that person while smiling coldly and then added: “What makes you think that you are entitled to criticize me?”
“Because… I am Lin Feng!” Said Lin Feng which made the man’s smile turn crooked.
……….“I am… Lin Feng!”
His words echoed through the restaurant and the entire atmosphere became deathly silent.
