Lin Feng walked through the door and saw Nan Shan outside. When he saw Lin Feng arrive, a grave and stern expression appeared on his face. He tried to smile and said: “Lin Feng, His Majesty wants to see you.”
“The second prince wants to see me? What’s going on?” Said Lin Feng a bit startled. The last time he had seen Duan Wu Ya was in Celestial River. On that day, Duan Wu Ya was wearing black and had brought eight cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer with him. He had been monstrously violent, he killed the King Class Evil Ectoplasm and seized the Heavenly Dragon Cauldron.
But after that, the cauldron had miraculously appeared before Lin Feng. What seemed like an extremely strong sword cultivator had offered the ancient cauldron to Lin Feng.
Since Duan Wu Ya had initially taken the cauldron from Lin Feng, he probably hadn’t voluntarily given it away. It was probably because someone had forced Duan Wu Ya to hand it over.
But what Lin Feng didn’t understand was who would have taken the cauldron from Duan Wu Ya and given it back to him?
Besides, Duan Wu Ya was looking for him. Was it because of the ancient cauldron? Did Duan Wu Ya want to know if Lin Feng had the cauldron?
“Young Master Lin, I don’t know about His Majesty’s personal matters.” Said Nan Shan while shaking his head with a faint smile.
Lin Feng remained silent and immediately said: “Where are we meeting?”
“Lovesick Forest.” Replied Nan Shan.
“Alright. Let’s go.” Said Lin Feng indifferently while nodding. In Xue Yue, if the second prince wanted to make things difficult for Lin Feng, Lin Feng could do nothing. Since Nan Shan had come, Lin Feng needed to go.
“Thank you, young master.” Said Nan Shan while smiling. Immediately after, he turned around and led the way.
“I’m coming too.” Said someone at that moment. The voice came from behind. Surprisingly, it was Lan Jiao and she was following them.
“Why would you come?” Asked Lin Feng while frowning.
“You need to take care of me.” Said Lan Jiao which made Lin Feng grow speechless. Immediately after, he started walking again and Lan Jiao followed him.
The Lovesick Forest was calm and peaceful. Having peace of mind in that place was easy. The faint sweet fragrance of the lovesick alcohol filled the entire atmosphere making people want to close their eyes and deeply breathe in the air.
The jade green bamboo trees were swaying in the wind. It seemed like another world, it was simple and elegant, and separated people from materialistic ambitions and made them feel at peace.
“How beautiful!” Lan Jiao, who was walking on Lin Feng’s side, was looking around at the beautiful landscape. She couldn’t help but gasp in amazement.
“Lin Feng, where are we? That alcohol smells very special.” Lan Jiao was very curious. Few people had the chance to visit that place.
“This is the Lovesick Forest. The smell is that of the Lovesick Alcohol. When someone drinks it, the person that they love will appear in their heart.” Said Lin Feng which stupefied Lan Jiao.
“Alcohol could make you feel love?” Lan Jiao sounded like she couldn’t believe it.
“Wait, you’ll try some and see.” Replied Lin Feng. She really couldn’t wait.
A moment after, Nan Shan brought Lin Feng to a private room in the middle of the bamboo forest. At that moment, two people were playing chess. One of them was Duan Wu Ya.
The other person was the amazing Duan Xin Ye.
When these two people saw Lin Feng arrive, they both stopped what they were doing and looked towards Lin Feng.
“Lin Feng, you came!” Said Duan Wu Ya while smiling and slightly nodding at Lin Feng. Besides, when the beautiful Duan Xin Ye saw Lin Feng, she shouted: “Lin Feng!”
Lan Jiao looked at Duan Xin Ye and then at Lin Feng and noticed that they were both looking at each other in different ways. Duan Xin Ye was looking at Lin Feng in a soft and gentle way. Lan Jiao was a woman and she could clearly see what was going on.
Besides, that woman was extremely beautiful. She looked elegant and noble, her face also looked very delicate. In comparison with Duan Xin Ye, Lan Jiao was extremely far from matching her beauty.
It made Lan Jiao feel uneasy, no wonder her Thousand Evil Illusions Technique had no effect on Lin Feng. On Lin Feng’s side, there was the beautiful and pure Meng Qing, then there was that elegant and noble Duan Xin Ye, no wonder……..
But that guy was really lucky, Meng Qing was obviously wonderful, but Duan Xin Ye also seemed to have an extraordinarily high social status and surprisingly, she also had feelings for Lin Feng.
“Second Prince, Princess!” Replied Lin Feng, this was also to let Lan Jiao know their social status.
Amazingly, the girl was the princess of Xue Yue! No wonder she looked so extraordinary.
“Lin Feng, don’t call me princess! Call me Xin Ye, alright?!” Said the incredibly beautiful Duan Xin Ye as if she was slightly saddened by him being formal.
Lin Feng had been in her heart for a while. When she heard Lin Feng call her “princess”, she felt that he was putting distance between them, too much distance. She didn’t like it when Lin Feng treated her the same way as everybody else.
Lin Feng remained silent and immediately nodded.
“Xin Ye!” Said Lin Feng which made Duan Xin Ye give a satisfied smile.
She then immediately walked towards him and suddenly grabbed Lin Feng’s arm. She then said: “Lin Feng, let’s play chess! Alright?”
Duan Wu Ya was looking at them with a smile yet not a smile on his face. He shook his head, smiled and said: “When a girl is of age, she needs to hurry and get married. My sister is hopeless.”
When Duan Xin Ye heard Duan Wu Ya, her face turned red. Even though the situation was a bit embarrassing, she didn’t stop holding Lin Feng’s arm.
Lin Feng had seen her naked, he felt like nothing was impossible anymore. After Lin Feng left her, Duan Xin Ye was constantly thinking about Lin Feng and she couldn’t get his image out of her mind. She couldn’t help but think about him constantly. From that moment, she didn’t think of herself as a princess when being with Lin Feng, so he had to drop the formality. She promised that if Lin Feng came back to the Imperial City, she wouldn’t let him leave her side again.
Lin Feng was smiling wryly. He obviously understood her feelings very well.
“Lin Feng, play chess with my sister.” Said Duan Wu Ya while smiling. Immediately after, he looked at Nan Shan and said: “let’s go and take a walk by the lake.”
When he finished talking, he slightly smiled at Lan Jiao but Lan Jiao glared icily at him. That face was familiar. From the second prince’s status and his familiar eyes, Lan Jiao guessed that this young man was the one who was wearing black in Celestial River. He was also the one who killed all the escaping members from the Cosmic Pavilion.
When Duan Wu Ya saw that Lan Jiao’s eyes were filled with hatred, he kept smiling warmly as before and said: “Do you want to come for a walk?”
“Alright.” Said Lan Jiao coldly, she didn’t want to refuse. She then left with Nan Shan and Duan Wu Ya.
Next to the stone table in the middle of the bamboo forest, Lin Feng and Duan Xin Ye were the only ones left.
They both sat down on stone chairs. Duan Xin Ye looked at Lin Feng and asked: “How are you?”
“I’m fine.” Nodded Lin Feng, he didn’t really know how he should reply.
“How come you haven’t come to see me in such a long time?” Asked Duan Xin Ye which made Lin Feng feel a bit surprised. He then smiled wryly and said: “I was extremely busy in Yangzhou City.”
“Is that so? And who is that beautiful woman with you exactly? You found her in such a short time.” said Duan Xin Ye sounding bitter. Meng Qing had already crushed her confidence. She was way too beautiful and pure… Duan Xin Ye was a princess in the mortal realm, but Meng Qing was a celestial goddess.
And now, a new beautiful woman had appeared by Lin Feng’s side. Even though she wasn’t as beautiful as Meng Qing, she was also extremely beautiful. She had a particularly alluring body and looked extremely seductive. She probably attracted lots of men.
“Her name is Lan Jiao. We accidentally crossed paths.” Replied Lin Feng while smiling wryly.
“Oh.” Replied Duan Xin Ye in a soft and gentle voice while lowering her head. Then, she silently looked at the chess board and said: “Lin Feng, come, let’s play chess.”
“I am extremely bad at chess, Xin Ye, you will have to show mercy.” Said Lin Feng with a faint smile on his face. Chess in his previous life and in the world of cultivation was quite different, Lin Feng knew almost nothing about the game in the cultivation world.
“Don’t worry. I will definitely show mercy.” Said Duan Xin Ye while giving a mischievous smile.
When they started playing chess, Duan Xin Ye was speechless. She was extremely good at playing the zither, chess, calligraphy, and painting but after Lin Feng said he was bad at chess, each of his moves were perfect.
“Lin Feng, as expected, it seems like you are really bad at chess!” Said Duan Xin Ye while gnashing her teeth. Her snowy-white hand firmly grabbed a piece but she didn’t know what to do against such advanced moves.
When Lin Feng heard Duan Xin Ye’s statement, he smiled wryly. He initially thought that he couldn’t play chess but amongst the memories of the strong cultivator, there was something which gave him the feeling of an experienced strategist. It was if he could control all the pieces on the board, as if it was an army.
Officers experienced in strategies were all excellent chess players.
“I don’t know what’s going on either.” Replied Lin Feng unable to explain. Immediately after, he saw Duan Xin Ye’s face turn pale, using both her hands, she knocked all of the pieces off the board while saying: “I’m not playing anymore, I’ve had enough!”
When Lin Feng saw that extremely graceful and elegant princess act like a spoilt little girl, a strange expression appeared on his face. At that moment, Duan Xin Ye was so adorable that Lin Feng heart started to feel warm.
