Ed note: I have a food coma
The last one had died. Three cultivators of the third Xuan Qi layer had died. They were all killed by Lin Feng.
At the same time, the Winged Tiger roared. It also killed the last remaining cultivator of the second Xuan Qi layer. In the air, there were only one person and his ferocious beast remaining.
Lin Feng and the Winged Tiger.
The outcome of the battle made many people grow speechless. It was astonishing. They had never thought that Lin Feng would be able to kill all the members of the Wan Shou Sect.
Twelve cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer and five Xuan level beasts… That was a terrifying group of cultivators,, anywhere else in Xue Yue. They would have been considered a terrifying force, but at that moment. They had all been slaughtered by Lin Feng. None of them were left alive.
Everything had happened just like Lin Feng said. The Wan Shou Sect wanted to kill Lin Feng and all the people who were close to him. They had planned to kill all of them, but in the end, Lin Feng killed all of the attacking members, leaving none alive.
They had wanted to kill Lin Feng’s friends, and even Meng Qing. Lin Feng would show no mercy, he immediately decided that he was going to massacre them. None of them would live to tell the tale.
Lin Feng glanced at the crowd with his pitch-black eyes which made people’s hearts pound brutally. Those ice-cold eyes were terrifying. They were wondering what happened to Lin Feng for him to become so powerful.
At that moment, Meng Qing was looking at Lin Feng with a resplendent smile on her face. She didn’t look cold anymore, she just had a beautiful, sweet and happy smile on her face.
Meng Qing’s smile gushed into Lin Feng’s heart just like a warm breeze.
Lin Feng had made rivers of blood flow, but it wasn’t important, all that mattered to him was that Meng Qing’s coldness was gradually disappearing. He had managed to melt the ice around her heart. Lin Feng felt gratified and pleasantly surprised.
All his work was worth it!
Back then, Meng Qing had always been protecting him and now it was different, he now had the power to protect the woman he loved, he couldn’t let anyone harm her.
“I’m sorry that I made you go through all of this.” Said Lin Feng in a soft tone. Meng Qing smiled and shook her head. She didn’t feel unpleased at all, she just felt a very warm sensation in her heart.
Was that how it felt to be protected by the man she loved? She finally knew how it felt. It felt so sweet, it was a wonderful feeling.
If Lin Feng could protect her forever, she would be willing to give up on her cultivation, even if it took her a million years to recover, it would be worth it.
“Cough cough!” A light cough interrupted Lin Feng and Meng Qing’s intimate moment. Lin Feng suddenly looked embarrassed, he turned his head and saw the two old men, they weren’t standing very far from the couple. He smiled and said: “Mister Chi, Mister Huo, why did you both come to the Imperial City?”
“There are high-ranking soldiers of the Xuan Qi layer in Yangzhou City now, so they can protect the city. Mister Huo and I were bored so we both wanted to come.” Said Mister Chi in a low voice while smiling. Lin Feng was stupefied and staring at Mister Chi.
“How many uncles have broken through to the Xuan Qi layer?” Asked Lin Feng.
“All of them.” Replied Mister Chi which astonished Lin Feng. Immediately after, a radiant smile appeared on his face. Ren Qing Kuang and the other officers had all broken through to the Xuan Qi layer. There were three officers of the Xuan Qi layer in Yangzhou City, soon after, some of the Chi Xie troops would also start to break through to the Xuan Qi layer.
No wonder Mister Chi and Mister Huo felt they could both come to the Imperial City and let off some steam. It was indeed a wonderful thing. Lin Feng felt happy to hear the news.
Mister Huo and Mister Chi had helped Ren Qing Kuang and the others improve their cultivation by leaps and bounds. They would be able to help even more people break through to the Xuan Qi layer in the future.
The Chi Xie troops would be a power that could sweep across Xue Yue someday, that was also Lin Feng’s goal.
“Lin Feng, let’s go somewhere else and talk.” Said Mister Huo while talking to Lin Feng who then nodded. The crowd was still there looking at them which didn’t make them feel relaxed when talked with eachother.
Immediately after, Lin Feng, Meng Qing and the two old men walked away. When the crowd saw Lin Feng leave, they sighed.
Back when Lin Feng had come to the Celestial Academy for the first time, nobody had thought that he would be able to achieve such incredible things.
Lin Feng had achieved such great things, this battle was just another page in Lin Feng’s adventures. Alone with his ferocious beast, they had managed to massacre a group of eleven cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer and five Xuan level beasts. Amongst them, there had been three cultivators of the third Xuan Qi layer but they had also all been killed by Lin Feng.
Lin Feng’s name would spread through the Imperial City once again. Besides, it wouldn’t create less of a buzz than the time when he had come for Liu Cang Lan with the Chi Xie troops.
From that moment on, the strongest cultivators of Xue Yue wouldn’t be able to ignore Lin Feng’s existence anymore. With his natural abilities, Lin Feng would, sooner or later, catch up with them and even surpass them.
In fact, everybody was thinking that way. Lin Feng’s group had killed twelve of the Wan Shou Sect’s cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer that came to the celestial academy, the news would spread extremely quickly in the Imperial City. The greatest spheres of influence would all have different reactions when hearing the news. The only common feeling amongst the spheres of influence would be shock.
Lin Feng was growing and he was becoming the man whom everybody had anticipated.
At the Yue Clan, Yue Qing Shan was observing a painting hanging on a wall. It was a portrait. It was the portrait of a beautiful woman with a resplendent smile.
Behind Yue Qing Shan, Yue Tian Ming was also calmly standing and looking at the portrait. He didn’t say anything, he just quietly looked towards the portrait. She used to be the top disciple of the Yue Clan but these days, she wasn’t with the clan. She hadn’t returned to the Yue Clan for over eighteen years.
Yue Tian Ming knew that the old man standing in front of him was furious about what had happened with her, but as before, nobody could replace her in his heart.
Even his grandson, who was dedicated to practicing cultivation and who was catching up with her at full speed couldn’t replace her inside his heart.
The old man had pushed himself so hard that he had white hair, but he was doing that for her.
Yue Tian Ming also knew that Yue Qing Shan came to see that portrait more and more often, it was because of a young man who was in the Imperial City.
“Meng He, your son is already a grown man. Besides, he’s not weaker than him. Now, you must be extremely proud. You must still be convinced that your choice was the right one. I, his grandfather, was I wrong, or was I right?” Whispered the old man. He didn’t even know who he was directing the question towards.
He remained silent for a while, his eyes were filled with determination, and he then continued to speak: “Meng He, no matter what you think, I am convinced that everything I did was for the sake of the Yue Clan. I haven’t done anything wrong. I can guarantee that I was in the right, you were the one at fault.”
When the old man finished talking, he abruptly turned away from the portrait and looked at Yue Tian Ming in a calm and solemn way. He then said: “Tian Ming, I want you to strive for victory at the Great Competition of Xue Yu, you have to defeat Lin Feng. You must win, you are not allowed to lose.”
Yue Tian Ming was surprised. He looked at the old man yet didn’t look that convinced.
Yue Tian Ming nodded and said sounding confident: “Grandpa, I will defeat Lin Feng. I will defeat him in front of everyone. Auntie will see it too.
“Indeed.” Nodded Yue Qing Shan. He then immediately started walking towards another part of the room.
“Grandpa, the Wan Shou Sect has been defeated, but more strong cultivators will appear, shouldn’t we do something?” Suddenly asked Yue Tian Ming.
“No need, the Wan Shou Sect can’t do anything against him.” Said the old man indifferently which surprised Yue Tian Ming. Immediately after, he slightly nodded. Indeed, he had already drawn so many people’s attention and was already in a dangerous situation, she was obviously following the entire situation.
How could his auntie allow anyone to hurt her son? The Wan Shou Sect wouldn’t be able to do anything.
Yue Qing Shan had faith in her, he had faith in his own daughter!
