If he wanted to fight then, Lin Feng was willing to fight him; if he just wanted to run his mouth, the man should scram.
Lin Feng was standing in the air and looked at the man with a piercing look. If he had doubts about Lin Feng’s strength, he could fight here and now, he could gamble and see if Lin Feng still had the strength to fight him.
The man glanced at Lin Feng and immediately after glanced at Duan Xin Ye, he immediately made a decision, no matter what the situation was, Leng Yue was already dead, he had been killed by Lin Feng and that couldn’t be changed.
If he fought and Lin Feng still had strength to fight, Lin Feng would definitely kill him. If Lin Feng didn’t have the strength to fight anymore and was just bluffing, if he really consumed all of his Qi, could the man even kill Lin Feng? Could he ignore Princess Duan Xin Ye’s feelings and kill Lin Feng?
He couldn’t forget that Lin Feng was part of Duan Wu Ya’s faction, if She Qiong was strong enough, he could have killed Lin Feng but the man could not take the same action, otherwise, he would end up being punished.
Therefore, he quickly decided that it would be best to leave, Lin Feng would regret it in the future.
“We will meet again.” Said the man to Lin Feng sounding cold. Immediately after, his silhouette flickered and vanished without trace which astonished the crowd.
She Qiong, Leng Yue and the man were three extremely strong cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer and they all wanted to cripple Lin Feng’s cultivation and some even wanted to kill him, but the result was She Qiong and the man had escaped while Leng Yue was burnt alive.
They had finally realized that the young man whom Duan Xin Ye liked so much was more mysterious than they could imagine. His natural abilities were much more frightening than they had first thought.
Lin Feng turned around and glanced at the crowd with an ice-cold glare. Immediately the people in the crowd felt their hearts start pounding. After that, the crowd quickly dispersed and left.
Once the crowd was gone, Lin Feng floated down to the ground. He took a deep breath, he no longer had a sharp expression, he just looked exhausted.
Exhausted. Lin Feng had pushed himself to the point of exhaustion.
He had condensed his pure Qi to unleash the full power of his black lotus twice. He almost no pure Qi left. Lin Feng could barely raise his hand. If the man had attacked him, Lin Feng wouldn’t have stood a chance, that man was much more terrifying than Leng Yue.
“Lin Feng.” Said Duan Xin Ye while moving next to him. When she saw that Lin Feng looked deathly pale, she started to feel guilty. Lin Feng had ended up in this position because she selfishly wanted to see him again.
“Don’t worry, I’m alright.” Said Lin Feng softly to Duan Xin Ye after which an adorable expression appeared on her face. She was hiding her sadness of not being able to marry him.
“No need to fly back, I will accompany you to the exit.” Said Duan Xin Ye to Lin Feng. Lin Feng slightly nodded and said: “Alright, let’s walk through the palace.”
The Imperial Palace was gigantic, it seemed like an endless landscape. There were seven thousand two hundred large residences, three thousand six hundred dining halls, an innumerable amount of ordinary halls and people, there were even more than four thousand mountains and three hundred rivers within the territory of the palace. The Imperial Palace was like a small world within the world.
Besides, considering all of this, the Imperial Palace was extremely calm and tranquil. It was surrounded by mountains and rivers, beautiful bridges were built over the lakes, the high mountains had rivers peacefully flowing down, every now and again there were people who could be seen taking a walk through the scenery. Of course, other roads also led to vast plains where Lin Feng could see people fighting, some of these battles were arranged to test their strength, while others were actual dangerous battles.
When the people saw Duan Xin Ye, they were surprised. Duan Xin Ye was surprisingly walking alone with a young man, Duan Xin Ye looked soft and gentle, she looked like a young girl in love.
This news would quickly spread through the Imperial Palace.
Lin Feng was also casually looking around.
“Lin Feng, can you see over there? It’s called Wu Ya Mountain, that is where my brother Wu Ya lives.”
At that moment, Duan Xin Ye was pointing at a distance mountain, the landscape was breathtaking. The foot of the mountain was emerald green and rivers were twisting through the lush greenery, it was extremely beautiful.
Besides, on the tip of the mountain, there was a small palace, on the edge of the palace, there was a large waterfall flowing from the mountain to the river below.
“Such beautiful scenery.” Lin Feng sighed in amazement. Lin Feng had just thought that everything would be gigantic and imposing in the Imperial Palace, but while walking through the different places, he understood it’s the unique beauty and magnificence that it held. Living there was indeed something marvelous, especially in the locations where Duan Wu Ya and Duan Xin Ye lived. The places where they lived were breathtakingly beautiful and tranquil. Duan Wu Ya lived in a breathtaking mountain scenery while Duan Xin Ye lived in a tranquil forest with a stream.
“It is great indeed, but I will not get to see it in the future.” Said Duan Xin Ye who sounded a bit sad, but then immediately her sadness turned into a smile, did such scenery really matter? The most important thing was that she would get to be with Lin Feng.
At that moment, Duan Xin Ye felt a hand next to hers, Lin Feng started to hold her hand with his warm and gentle hand.
Duan Xin Ye shivered and looked at Lin Feng. He was looking at her with a resplendent smile on his face.
Duan Xin Ye beautifully smiled while looking at Lin Feng. Duan Xin Ye also started to hold onto Lin Feng’s hand.
The sun was radiating its light down onto these two bodies, a talented and handsome young man, walking hand in hand with a beautiful noble girl with the beautiful scenery in the background, the scene was like something only told in stories.
Lin Feng was smiling warmly, Duan Xin Ye was walking with him and holding his hand so that everybody would know that Lin Feng and Duan Xin Ye were together. One can only imagine the kind of pressure Duan Xin Ye was under. She was a beautiful young woman, she was a princess, but for Lin Feng, she would abandon her status, her family and her right to live in the Imperial Palace, only to be with him.
She felt an uncontrollable yearning for Lin Feng, would he ever disappoint her?
At that moment, in the mountains, beside a waterfall, two people appeared. Just like Lin Feng and Duan Xin Ye, these two people were a handsome young man and a beautiful woman.
“Huh?” When these two people saw Lin Feng and Duan Xin Ye, they were a bit surprised.
“What a beautiful woman.” Thought that young man when he saw Duan Xin Ye. She looked precious and elegant just like a lotus flower in blossom. She had a beautiful smile which radiated from her face.
The beautiful girl by his side was a fellow disciple, she was exceedingly beautiful but she still couldn’t reach Duan Xin Ye’s beauty.
Immediately after, the young man slowly turned his head and looked at Lin Feng. He had the feeling that he had already seen Lin Feng in the past, but he could not remember him.
“Have we met him before?” Asked the young man while frowning.
The young girl was looking at Duan Xin Ye. She hadn’t even paid attention to Lin Feng. Duan Xin Ye was very beautiful which made her feel slightly uncomfortable, especially since her fellow disciple was looking at her in such an ambiguous way a moment before.
When the young girl heard her fellow disciple, she turned to Lin Feng and also had the same feeling, as if she had already seen Lin Feng somewhere, but she couldn’t remember where.
“Eeeeeeeee…….” In the air, an eagle cried out and then landed beside the young man.
When Lin Feng and Duan Xin Ye heard the call of the eagle, their attention was drawn in that direction as well. At that moment, they both raised their heads and looked at the place beside the waterfall. Lin Feng frowned and a dazzling light flashed through his eyes.
“It’s him.” Lin Feng’s eyes looked extremely cold. Even though he had never seen them before, judging from their descriptions and the eagle, he had guessed who they were already.
On that day he returned from Celestial River to Yangzhou City, as he rushed towards Yangzhou City, two silhouettes had appeared atop an eagle, he only had time to see them fly away into the distance. When Lin Feng had arrived in Yangzhou City, he saw that these people had crushed Liu Cang Lan and Lin Feng’s statues and killed the Chi Xie soldier that were on guard, they were extremely cold-blooded and savage.
They said that if Lin Feng wanted his revenge, he could find them in the Imperial City.
Lin Feng could still remember his name: Ling Tian.
“Huh?” Ling Tian noticed Lin Feng’s cold glare and felt a cold chill of killing intent. Ling Tian frowned hideously when he noticed this.
Ling Tian was sure that he had never seen Lin Feng but he looked extremely familiar. He had long forgotten about the statues and the slaughter of some insignificant guards.
“Ling Tian, what’s wrong?” At that moment, in the sky above the waterfall there was soft and gentle voice. Immediately after, Duan Wu Ya appeared to their side and saw the two silhouettes in the distance.
Surprisingly, it was his sister Duan Xin Ye and Lin Feng.
However, Lin Feng and Ling Tian didn’t look like they were on good terms.
