“Xin Ye, let’s go outside have a walk.” Said Lin Feng when he saw the chaos that happened to the chessboard.

 

Duan Wu Ya had invited him to come but it seemed like it was only because of Duan Xin Ye. It didn’t seem to have anything to do with the ancient cauldron but Lan Jiao and Duan Wu Ya were together, Lin Feng was afraid that Lan Jiao would lose her temper.

 

After all, in Celestial River, Duan Wu Ya had killed Aunt Yun who  was very close to Lan Jiao.

 

“Alright.” Nodded Duan Xin Ye. Immediately after, she stood up and joined Lin Feng on a walk through the bamboo forest.

 

Deep in the forest, there was a brook which was softly emitting the sound of running water, there was also a small bridge which crossed it, the scenery was enchanting.

 

Duan Xin Ye raised her head and looked at a bird that was resting on the emerald green bamboo. She suddenly looked pensive and said in a soft voice: “I wish I could one day have a house here with the one I love. It would be so wonderful.”

 

Lin Feng was surprised and immediately smiled wryly. The situation was awkward for Lin Feng, he then said: “The one who created the Lovesick Forest probably had the same thought which is why they created such a beautiful place.”

 

“Yes, she was very stupid, she stopped all contact with her clan because of the lover she chose.” Nodded Duan Xin Ye.

 

When Lin Feng heard Duan Xin Ye heard Lin Feng, he became very curious. He couldn’t help but ask: “Who’s the owner of the Lovesick Forest?”

 

Duan Xin Ye looked at Lin Feng, smiled and said: “The person who used to be called the most beautiful woman in the entire country, Yue Meng He.”

 

“The most beautiful woman of Xue Yue?” Lin Feng was surprised. Duan Xin Ye was extremely beautiful and had an extremely high social status but she had never gained the title of “most beautiful woman in the country”. However, that Yue Meng He had been considered as such, Lin Feng was curious to see such a beauty.

 

“Yue Meng He!” Whispered Lin Feng and immediately after, he looked at Duan Xin Ye and said: “Her family name is Yue!”

 

Duan Xin Ye slightly nodded and said: “You immediately guessed it. Indeed, she belongs to the Yue Clan. Besides, in the past, she was considered to be the most gifted disciple of the Yue Clan, to the extent that was even considered as the strongest woman in the entire country of Xue Yue. Even amongst men, rare were those who could compete with her.”

 

Lin Feng was becoming more and more curious. Lin Feng was really wondering what such a woman could be like, amazingly, she was the most beautiful woman and the strongest woman of the country and on top of that, there were extremely few men who could defeat her.

 

“But it’s weird though, since she has such high natural abilities, why did the Yue Clan reject her? They should have put her at the core of the clan, why did they stop contact?” Asked Lin Feng who didn’t understand. The Yue Clan wanted to compete with the Imperial Clan and the Yu Clan, having an extremely gifted disciple would have only been an advantage, why would they stop talking to her?

 

“That happened eighteen years ago. At that time, the situation was still the same as now, the Duan Clan, the Yue Clan and the Yu Clan were all extremely strong but my Duan Clan, and the Yue Clan were slightly stronger than the Yu Clan because of our special spirits. As far as strength was concerned, no matter if we’re talking about today or before, the Yu Clan cannot rival the Duan Clan or the Yue Clan, they were and are much weaker. In terms of wealth, the Yue Clan isn’t as wealthy as the Duan Clan and the Yu Clan. Amongst the three biggest clans, the strongest and the wealthiest is the Duan Clan which is how the power balance was created. Besides, the Yue Clan is second strongest clan in the country.”

 

Duan Xin Ye was speaking slowly and continued: “In Xue Yue, four prodigious junior cultivators appeared. One of them belonged to the Duan Clan and one to the Yue Clan, who have the extremely strong blood spirits. Then, there was one who came from a clan of sword cultivators, the Zhuge Clan. They transfer their sword skills from generation to generation. So the third prodigy was from that clan and is called Zhuge Wu Qing. Then, the fourth person didn’t belong to an influential clan. Instead, that person was absolutely unknown in the past. Nobody knows exactly where he came from. Actually, I only know that just like you, his family name was Lin. He suddenly rose as a prodigy in the Imperial City and possessed a dual spirit.”

 

“The four prodigies of eighteen years ago had a much more terrifying power and strength than the eight high officials of today and were extremely famous. Amongst these four people, there were three young men and a young girl. That young girl was precisely the most beautiful woman in Xue Yue, Yue Meng He. Lin Feng, imagine, being considered as the most beautiful woman of the entire country and as the strongest and most gifted woman as well, she was the best disciple of the Yue Clan, she was a genius. That woman made the three men’s hearts shake.”

 

It seemed like Lin Feng understood what had happened.

 

“The three incredibly strong prodigies fell in love with that woman.” whispered Duan Xin Ye as if she was imagining the story. Every time she heard the story, she was very moved. She couldn’t help but sigh. There was more to know about the story of that heroic woman though.

 

“But Yue Meng He didn’t choose the strongest of them, the one from the Imperial Clan. She didn’t choose Wu Qing the sword master either. Instead, she fell in love with the unknown young man. You can imagine how the Yue Clan reacted when they found out that Yue Meng He and that unknown prodigy were together. She had a lot of pressure from her clan.

 

Lin Feng lightly nodded. She had chosen neither the strongest cultivator nor the monstrous sword cultivator Zhuge Wu Qing, instead, she had fallen in love with a prodigious young man who had no social background. That was a calamity for her clan as one could well imagine.

 

“Besides, in the beginning, the Imperial Clan and the Yue Clan had an agreement. They wanted one of their boys and one of their girls to marry. The prodigy of the Duan Clan had a marriage agreement with Yue Meng He. Besides, the prodigy of the Duan Clan was an extremely aggressive and arrogant person.” Said Duan Xin Ye while shaking her head which startled Lin Feng. However, he was slowly understanding why Yue Meng He and her clan had stopped talking.

 

“After that, there was a huge pressure on her shoulders, the couple decided to elope and leave the country. Zhuge Wu Qing’s heart was broken into a thousand pieces. He just kept practicing sword cultivation. Besides, he didn’t put Yue Meng He and her lover in a difficult situation, even though his passion for her reached the heavens.”

 

“But Yue Meng He and the prodigious young man didn’t manage to hide. The people of the Imperial Clan and of the Yue Clan found them. Besides, at that time, Yue Meng He was wakened for some reason. When the prodigious young man saw that they would never succeed in escaping, he decided to send Yue Meng He back to the Yue Clan and fought against the prodigy of the Duan Clan in a decisive battle. In the end, the cultivator from my clan won the battle, he sealed the young prodigy’s spirit and expelled him from the Imperial City.

 

“Of course, I’ve heard this story many times. My mother used to tell me these stories. I was born shortly after that battle. Besides, my parents don’t allow me to tell anyone else about that story. You have to keep it a secret, Lin Feng, it’s a secret between us.” Said Duan XinYe.

 

At that moment, Lin Feng looked disappointed. Duan Xin Ye and he hadn’t witnessed the events eighteen years before but they were still profoundly moved by that story. They had no choice but to rely on their imagination to have an idea of what it must have been like.

 

They had fought because of a beautiful woman. In the end, the unknown young man had left with his soul sealed. Maybe deep in his heart, he had never given up on getting her back.

 

But even if he didn’t want to give up, what could he do? He had been able to leave alive, that was already amazing!

  3. Skoll   •  

    And he doesn’t realize they are talking about his father? Cmon Lin Feng, thought you were smart….
    Thanks for the chap not sane

    • NandaSakti   •  

      Well LF didnt see the whole story from our point of view, a lot of hint was given to us readers, not LF.

      • Belkar   •  

        The unknown cultivator had the same ‘Lin’ name, his father has been visibly marked with a seal by the Duan clan and I’m guessing he knows his own age as well, which coincidentally matches the unknown weakness of the woman.

        Sure we readers have gotten far more clues, but a name, sealing mark and timeline should be enough, no?

        • a   •  

          cmon man if u were him would u believe your father be that prodigy?his father’s weakness can be understood by us but lf cant he doesnt even know his father had dual spirit after all if he knew he d realize or get suspicious about it after all his father came to imperial city as well and he couldnt find him in city.well he ll learn anyway ll kill that cultivator of duan clan free his father’s spirit bla bla as always rekt

    • Christian   •  

      him smart? lel potatopotatopotato

  4. Leylin   •  

    OHHHHHH the suspense!
    Lin Hai confirmed husband of Yue Meng He!

  5. Lord Luc   •  

    Hmmmm sounds like that could be the story of Lin Feng’s father! Maybe Lin Feng will have to go through the same ideal… Or maybe Meng Qing is his sister. That would be pretty interesting!

    • lokugatsu   •  

      why would she be his sister? did i miss something?

      • SirKulinski   •  

        Only reason I’ve seen so far for the theory is Mysterious Mum of Meng Qing that hasn’t been seen and them sharing Meng in their name. So… Yeah.

        • AkuyaKibito   •  

          It was Lin Feng who gave her that name tho

  6. Telden   •  

    Lin feng’s father ?
    Thanks for the chapter !

  7. John doe   •  

    Lin family, huh?

  8. Glitner   •  

    Clearly his parents

  9. NandaSakti   •  

    Now the mom and dad’s story is clear, kill them all and save mommy !!!

  10. youngdrgn   •  

    Thx for the chapter. I believe the story is about Lin Feng’s mom and dad.

  11. Charlie   •  

    Yayy! We finally find out about his parents! Thankee for the chapter! Good luck finding those missing editors! :3

  12. lokugatsu   •  

    omg Lin Hai is (or was) strong as fuck! i thought it would be a strong girl falling in love with the weak dude, never guessed he was actually awesome. (since it’s already known that his mother is the creator of lovesick forest)

  13. Loki   •  

    It does sound like Meng Qing is his sister. I thought of that possibility a while back, and I hope that is not the case. Euro Trip anyone? “Here’s a fun fact. You made out with your sister man!” Messed up and so very awkward. That would be an annoying twist to me. However, it is not like it was not foreshadowed if that is the case.

    • lokugatsu   •  

      i asked above, but why would she be his sister? what did i miss about all this? hahaahha

      • Loki   •  

        I can’t really remember what made me think that, but it is just a feeling I got. Maybe it is her spirit? Lin Feng got his mother’s spirit while Meng Qing got Lin Hai’s. I hope not the though. Anyone seen Euro Trip?

    • yipes   •  

      That doesn’t make sense at all.

      Meng Qing is way way way old, like ancient; she had been stored there at the Sect Master’s secret place. I’m not sure why you’d connect her to the Lin Feng parents story.

      • SirKulinski   •  

        I thought she was just somewhere in the 20’s and was only just recently living with her mom who left for unknown reasons.in the backparts of whatever monster mountain was around the Yun Hai Sect.

    • Xandarth   •  

      Meng Qing is probably the daughter of either the old Patriarch of the MC’s Sect or the general who gave his army to Lin Feng. She went missing right after the General left their Sect because of her, yet Meng Qing’s house was right at the end of the secret escape route out of their Sect.

      There’s no real possibility she’s Lin Feng’s sister but she may be half-sisters with his other waifu the generals daughter.

      PS: Yes, I can’t remember any of their names because 90% of the character in this story seems to share 5 surnames (2 of which Yu & Yue are almost identical) making keeping track of them practically impossible.

      • yeman   •  

        come on guys, meng qing was in the middle of forest with vicious beasts, if you read douluo dalu you can think of something else,i think.

      • Mossadegh   •  

        I’m about 95% sure that Meng Qing is a fox beast of some sort. Lin Feng encountered her where only beasts live, his dragon spirit was able to absorb her Qi, something that has only happened with other beasts like the Imaginary Demon and the dragon from the purple lake, and she was very interested in a fox fairy story several chapters ago. The fox fairy story is probably a reference to one of the Chinese author Pu Songling’s stories of foxes falling in love with people. If that’s not enough foxes are linked to Yin, which is related to the moon and ice/snow and makes her the Yin to Lin Feng’s Yang.

        • RIIIcardo   •  

          ”I’m about 95% sure that Meng Qing is a fox beast of some sort.” spoiler much

          • Mossadegh   •  

            I guess that means I was right, thanks for the spoiler!

  14. crazyboy1200   •  

    so he is part Yue? I thought it was an ancient clan…

    • SirKulinski   •  

      What does ancient have anything to do with Lin Hai I think it was and Yue Meng He producing a Lin Feng?

    • midoriryu7   •  

      not just part,but the only male of direct bloodline to the main house

    • Senros   •  

      Well, since more than a 100 chapter you could see that. At some point the prince tells Nan Sha (I think it was him) and also he tells the princess that he (Lin Feng) is “her” son. That’s how he tells the princess, to Nan Sha or Nan Shan whatever his name is he tells him that Lin Feng is her son and then he said that he was the son of the owner of the Lovesick Forest. At some point the prince says that the Lovesick Forest belongs to the Yue Clan, which meant that Lin Feng’s mom was from that clan.
      But, oh boy, Lin Feng is kind of disappointing (at least in the chapter not sure if he gets smarter in the next ones). When he saw the blood spirit of Duan Feng (maybe that’s not his name but the Duan guy that came with him to the academy) he remembered that he had seen the mark of the gates of the Duan guy’s spirit in his father’s spirit… Then when he and his father were kicked out of the clan his father told him that he was going to the imperial city and that he knew some people there… With that he should have been a bit suspicious about that story… Sure you can say that from Lin Feng’s that unknown prodigy couldn’t be his father, but to not even think about that possibility… Meh

  15. Yoshier360   •  

    Awesome can’t wait for more

  16. DMR   •  

    Oh, so that was the story of his parents… and that sword cultivator lover our MCs mom 😛

    Thanks for the chapter XD

  17. Gkubro   •  

    Super chest strategist cant figure it out huh..

  18. Amaelzaekil   •  

    Well, after slaughtering the paternal clan, time to slaughter the maternal one

  19. Gkubro   •  

    Still need to know about the dragon

  20. miztoo   •  

    Well, I guess the guy from the Duan Clan is the actual Crown Prince.
    Seeing how we already heard how vicious and aggressive the Crown Prince was…

    • yipes   •  

      Crown Prince is too young; this happened 18+ years ago in the story; Crown Prince can’t be much older than 2nd Prince and Lin Feng.

      More likely, the Emperor was the 4th prodigy competing with Lin Hai.

  21. João   •  

    Enlightening! Thanks for the chapter.

  22. Amphidsf   •  

    Obvious explanations of the story is obvious. Mysterious Lin is Lin Feng’s father, the reason the sword cultivator gave Lin Feng the cauldron is because he loved Feng’s Mother. This is some Harry Potter love triangles going up in here.

  23. Random   •  

    thanks for the chapter 🙂
    holy that was so obvious after all the prodigy is named lin

  24. doodlegirl   •  

    Thanks for the chapter!

    I would love to be an editor ^.^

  25. blackstar5   •  

    Nice chapter… Thank you!! 🙂

  26. Reright   •  

    …What I find the most interesting about this chapter is ….I think we now know who the mysterious swordsman is and his possible connection to Lin Feng & family ….Just a thought 😉

    • RIIIcardo   •  

      Yep and i already like his character, i hope he don’t disapoint me

  27. Taryn   •  

    Thanks for the chapter!!

  28. Oak   •  

    thanks for the chapter

  29. blank   •  

    wonder what kind of shock will he get when he gonna find out that that other guy is his fasther,
    hn…disaster for duan clan?? probably not ^ ^

  30. RIIIcardo   •  

    Thx for the chapter, it’s obviously his mother

  31. SilverMaoh   •  

    Wow my expectations for this just plummeted because of this one chapter, but still thanks for chap and still enjoy the read

  32. SnowyFeffe   •  

    So Lin Feng had two more families to kill off…

    Thank you for the chapter ^.^

  33. Zeth   •  

    Thank you very much!

  34. JohnnieWalker   •  

    i thought so. and im guessing the guy gave lin feng the cauldron is the swordman “zhuge” guy or something.

  35. Xyn   •  

    Now what would be even more interesting is if his mom was then forced to mary the Duan clan Prodigy who ended up being the emperor. … It would mean the princes are actualy his half-brothers. I do so love complicated family histories <3

  36. dar   •  

    So that happened to his parents…

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  37. Raiha   •  

    Wow. Lin Hai lucky bastard

    • Marcelius Everchrist   •  

      Not so lucky, he was defeated and suffered away from his woman with his spirit sealed, raising his only son from those wolves that wanted to kill him in his clan

  38. ambi   •  

    Thanks for the chapter notsaneinthebrain and Robert G!

  39. Abyssdarkfire   •  

    Dam so after being separated from your wife your clan plots against you in your son. Lin feng’s father has a hard hand to deal with.

  40. Apxahren   •  

    Funniest thing to me is the fact that Xin Ye just called Lin Feng’s mother ‘stupid’ for forsaking her family and choosing to be with Lin Feng’s dad.

    And she knows that Yue Meng He is Lin Feng’s mother because Duan Wu Ya told her at the end of chapter 190.

    Unless the author forgot this?

    • Marcelius Everchrist   •  

      Indeed, he said “because ‘She’ is his mother”, unless this girl is the stupid one or she is pretending then the author forgot
