PMG Chapter 524: Heartless Conditions

Chapter 524: Heartless Conditions

 

Lin Feng was coldly staring at Duan Wu Ya. 

 

It was all about face, the Imperial City Clan only cared about their own prestige, they didn’t care about Xin Ye. 

 

“I would like to ask you, if I hadn’t saved Xin Ye, what would have happened?” Asked Lin Feng in an ice-cold tone which surprised Duan Wu Ya. She would have died, or even if somebody else had saved her, the humiliation would have been the same, they would either lose face or lose the princess.

 

“Shouldn’t you go and find out who really gave the poison to her instead of groundlessly accusing me? Besides, attaching importance to a concept such as face is useless, you can’t change what happened. Do you think that if you kill me, you will regain the prestige you lost? Have you thought about Xin Ye?” Shouted Lin Feng furiously. Duan Wu Ya couldn’t refute Lin Feng’s words.

 

“What you mean is that we should let you off that easily?” Said Yue Tian Ming. 

 

“Shut the hell up.” Shouted Lin Feng. He then added: “You have nothing to say here! Nobody gives a shit about your crappy marriage agreement! I’ve already told you, Xin Ye is mine. Even if the incident of yesterday evening had never happened, she would have still remained mine and only mine!” 

 

Yue Tian Ming pulled a long face, he hated Lin Feng, he hated him so much! And Lin Feng wasn’t even giving him face. 

 

Besides, for Yue Tian Ming, it was more embarrassing that his own grandfather, Yue Qing Shan had told him to stop blocking Lin Feng. He didn’t want him to directly oppose Lin Feng. 

 

His grandfather, by doing that, had implied that Yue Tian Ming wasn’t a match for Lin Feng.

 

When Duan Wu Ya heard Lin Feng’s aggressive tone of speech, he remained silent for a long time and then said: “How do you want to solve the problem then?”

 

“What do you think? Do you have any ideas?” Asked Lin Feng. Duan Wu Ya probably already had an idea.

 

“I want you to marry Xin Ye immediately and tell everyone. That is the only solution which will regain our prestige.” Said Duan Wu Ya looking firm. 

 

Yue Tian Ming was astonished, he wanted Lin Feng to immediately marry Duan Xin Ye?! What about the marriage contract!?

 

Lin Feng looked stupefied for less than a second but immediately returned to normal. That solution was probably the best, killing Lin Feng gave no advantages, it would only cause more damage. 

 

“Let me think.” Replied Lin Feng. He was, of course, going to marry Duan Xin Ye, but time was a problem. 

 

“Think? You need to think?? My sister’s reputation has been tarnished! Everybody knows about what happened! And you’re still thinking of a way to flee from your responsibility?! Lin Feng, give me your answer immediately.” Said Duan Wu Ya looked firm and tenacious. 

 

“I will marry Xin Ye.” Said Lin Feng completely certain. He, of course, had to bear that responsibility for his actions. Duan Xin Ye was a princess and he had taken away her virginity, besides, everybody already knew about it. Duan Xin Ye would be considered an easy woman if he didn’t marry her. He had to marry her for her reputation. 

 

“You must marry her, but also quickly!” Said Duan Wu Ya while staring at Lin Feng: “Besides, you have to show to everyone that you are determined. Everybody must know that you are going to marry her.” 

 

Duan Wu Ya continued: “Everybody knows that my sister is not a virgin anymore. If you don’t marry her right away, she will never regain her reputation. Everything is now in your hands, the only solution is for you to show to everybody that you are determined to be with her and quickly, that is the only way for my sister to regain her reputation.” 

 

Lin Feng felt tense and nervous, but Duan Wu Ya was absolutely right. 

 

If he didn’t marry Duan Xin Ye quickly enough, she wouldn’t regain her reputation. Lin Feng had to prove to everybody that he wanted to be with Duan Xin Ye, but also that he was the perfect man for her. He had to impress everyone and show them that he had what it took to marry a princess, however, how could he do that? How could he prove that he had what was required to marry her?

 

“Brother, you are so mean to Lin Feng, I don’t care if he doesn’t want to marry me, it doesn’t matter!” Said Duan Xin Ye while running out of her residence. If Lin Feng was willing to marry her, that was already enough. She would be happy to share everything with him. Initially, she didn’t even want to be his first wife, she just wanted to stay by his side. She didn’t care about prestige or reputation.

 

“Xin Ye, you have nothing to say here. We’re not talking to you.” Said Duan Wu Ya aggressively.

 

Considering Duan Wu Ya’s behaviour and statements, it seemed like he had planned everything from the beginning… Lin Feng then asked: “Your Highness, tell me, how I can prove it to everyone then.” 

 

“I want you to participate in the Great Competition of Xue Yu and become the glory of Xue Yue, you must show everyone the power of our country. Then you must return and marry my sister.” Said Duan Wu Ya slowly. Then he added: “You, Lin Feng, must participate in the Great Competition of Xue Yu and place amongst the top ten participants, but not at the bottom of the list, only ninth place or above. Otherwise, it would be better for you to die in the competition, there would be no need to return, my sister can’t marry someone who is not worthy.” 

 

“Brother, you’re asking too much! That’s too exaggerated!” Shouted Duan Xin Ye. It would be extremely difficult to finish in the top nine. 

 

Lin Feng was from Xue Yue and it was just a small and normal country amongst the thirteen countries of Xue Yu. There were four empires and nine countries, and they all had extremely strong cultivators participating. Those chosen to participate in the Great Competition of Xue Yu were all the strongest cultivators from those countries. If all those countries had chosen only their strongest cultivator, there would have been thirteen powerhouses. In that case, Lin Feng would have to beat several powerhouses to reach the top nine.

 

In other words, Lin Feng had to defeat several cultivators, who might be stronger than the crown prince of Xue Yue, finishing in the top nine would be extremely difficult. 

 

Besides, Duan Wu Ya was saying that if Lin Feng failed, he should die abroad, during the Great Competition of Xue Yu. 

 

“I’m not done talking.” Said Duan Wu Ya indifferently which made Duan Xin Ye feel even more tense. He wasn’t done? Wasn’t all of this enough already?

 

“The one who wants to marry my sister must be the strongest cultivator in Xue Yue. After finishing amongst the nine best cultivators of Xue Yu, I want you to return and become the first high-official of Xue Yue. That is the only way for you to prove to everyone that you are worthy, and for people to respect and admire you. Then, you will be able to marry my sister, then we will regain our prestige and nobody will be able to say a word in retort.” 

 

Duan Wu Ya’s words made everybody shiver, his requirements were extremely high. Duan Wu Ya’s requirements were extremely difficult and cruel. 

 

The Great Competition of Xue Yu was a true competition between geniuses, Lin Feng was only eighteen years old, finishing in the top nine would be difficult. Besides, that wasn’t enough, Duan Wu Ya wanted him to become the first high-official of Xue Yue which meant that Duan Wu Ya was asking him to… Defeat Duan Wu Dao, the crown prince! Nobody in Xue Yue was allowed to be stronger than Lin Feng, that was the requirement. 

 

Nobody could imagine such things from a young man like Lin Feng but Duan Wu Ya was saying that Lin Feng had to achieve them.

 

Yue Tian Ming was also scared by Duan Wu Ya’s requests, he also thought that finishing amongst the top nine cultivators of the Great Competition of Xue Yu was extremely difficult. 

 

Duan Wu Dao, the crown prince, killed anyone who offends him, but he is good to those who don’t. He had been the first high-official of Xue Yue for a long time. Nobody had ever surpassed him. Yue Tian Ming was also aware that he would be unable to match Duan Wu Dao. Duan Wu Ya wanted him to defeat Duan Wu Dao and become the first high-official, that was almost impossible.

 

“Brother, how can you be that cruel to Lin Feng?” Said Duan Xin Ye, she was extremely worried Duan Wu Ya’s requests were almost impossible. 

 

“If he can’t do those things, why should he be allowed to marry you?” Said Duan Wu Ya while shaking his head and staring at Lin Feng. 

 

At that moment, Lin Feng looked puzzled, what did Duan Wu Ya mean with those requirements? What was his goal?

 

If he finished amongst the top cultivators in the Great Competition of Xue Yu, he would definitely return to Xue Yue as a glorious hero, defeating Duan Wu Dao however was extremely complicated, but if he managed to do that, nobody would dare disrespect him.

 

“Is there a time limit for the second request?” Asked Lin Feng. 

 

“You have one year to marry my sister.” Said Duan Wu Ya. Lin Feng had only one year to do it! 

 

The Great Competition of Xue Yu would start soon, so it would, of course, not require one year to complete. However, Lin Feng also had to become the first high-official in the same year. 

 

One could also understand, from Duan Wu Ya’s tone of speech and behaviour, that becoming the first high-official of Xue Yue was even more difficult than finishing in the top nine of the Great Competition. What Duan Wu Ya seemed to think was that Duan Wu Dao, his brother, was even stronger than the people who finished in the top nine of the Great Competition of Xue Yu. At least, Duan Wu Ya thought so, he had faith in his brother.

 

Even if Lin Feng finished in the top nine, he would still be very far from being able to compete with Duan Wu Dao. 

 

“I have no choice, right?” Said Lin Feng.

 

“Indeed, no choice.” Said Duan Wu Ya while shaking his head. 

 

Lin Feng remained silent for a moment and then grabbed Duan Xin Ye’s hand, he then said: “I’m going somewhere with Duan Xin Ye for a few days.”

 

“Where?” 

 

“The Lovesick Forest.” Replied Lin Feng calmly. Duan Wu Ya nodded and said: “No problem, bring her back in a few days time. I don’t want the same things, which happened in the past, to happen again.” 

 

Lin Feng remained silent, he obviously understood that Duan Wu Ya was talking about the fact that Yue Meng He and Lin Hai left Xue Yue, but the result was Lin Hai’s cultivation was sealed and he was unable to enter the Imperial City. Because of what had happened eighteen years before, Lin Hai had to hide in the Lovesick Forest.

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

    Those conditions are so forced its hard to believe Lin Feng will agree to them just like that. Thanks for the chapter

    • SemperAmbroscus   •  

      I agree, not sure why but when I said this last chapter my comment was put up for moderation but I think Duan Wu Ya set the whole thing up. He was the one who kept trying to push the MC into a relationship with the princess and everyone says he is really smart so he probably realized that MC would never marry into the princesses family nor would he take her as his first wife so I wouldntbe surprised if Duan Wu Ya set the whole thing up so that MC had to marry the princess. Everything he said in this chapter furthered my believe. Also, he said if the MC can’t complete those outrageous demands then he isn’t worthy of the princess but seriously, if he can’t do it then nobody in that country can so the princess should never marry anyone. And seriously, the princess may be top quality goods within that country but she is far from being so good that only the champions of the entire continent are worthy of her. Ugh, I just dropped this novel.

      • Heinz Kessler   •  

        I get it, the prince guy just wants to get rid of his older brother to claim power and since he can’ t do it himself cause he is too weak he needs someone else to fix his shit for him and that’s why he came with this.

        • Khis   •  

          The interesting thing is that the current emperor seems to want Wu Ya to be the inheritor as well.

    • Khis   •  

      Lin Feng has little reason not to disagree. That was more or less his plan already anyway. At most this is pushing up his time table nothing more.

      • Khis   •  

        Gah .. I meant “little reason to agree”

        • Khis   •  

          disgree … damnit today is not a good day for me to be typing replies x_x

  4. Serguis   •  

    How strange.
    Lin Feng act like he doesn’t fear anything, in front of adversity, he is like a mad bull (stupid but head-front) but here, where obviously someone (perhaps the prince) trapped him, he act like a scaredy cat…

    Is it something from wuxia that I never understood among all others wuxias? After sleeping with the girl, you obey the brother-in-law ?

  5. CrowSR   •  

    I say, how can he NOT agree? He has to do it for Xin Ye, no matter what.
    Tbh, I’m eager to see Lin Feng step on those so-called powerhouses.

  6. White Lotus   •  

    It sounds like this is all a plot that Duan Wu Ya created, he must have been the one that poisoned his sister.

    • joeymets22   •  

      now that i think about it that seems very likely

  7. Kamal Raniga   •  

    Girl, Love, Honor, Responsibility, all reasons a MC usually becomes a bit docile with his in-laws for a little while……..after he sorta slept with the girl.

    Think of it as you LikyLiky with your Girlfriend and then next day get caught by her dad, that’s kinda MC’s situation.

      • Kamal Raniga   •  

        No offense, i just like your name, wana make it into a synonym for XXX. on most all wuxia sites…..if 9gag can have potatoes, why cant we have likyliky………….

        Peace, just messing with you dude, n thanks for the editing.

    • ElysianSoul   •  

      not when it’s the dad that gave the aphrodisiac to his daughter to force you together for his schemes for power. I feel like it was wu ya…

  8. Luna3383   •  

    Why…. do I get the feeling that Duan Wu Ya was the one who put the poison in his sister’s drink?? He’s making Lin Feng do all these impossible things…

    • Nina   •  

      Claro que fue el todo esta perfectamente calculado -.-

  9. Schu   •  

    Duan wu ya is the one who poisoned her
    Then he is the first to accuse lin feng and blame everything on him to make him feel guilty which was all a plan to get him to marry her the only thing he hasnt put into consideration is that she IS NOT lin fengs no#1 girl that spot is already taken in his heart by MENG QING and that is what lin feng is worried about offcourse he would want to marry his M.Q before xin ye geeeezzzzzzzz easy read guyss come on…..lin feng aint scared of noone!!

    • aiy2001   •  

      tbh im sure that the prince know that his sister is not lin feng number1 girl. but he too also know that his sister is head over hell for lin feng. the prince also have doubt that if lin feng marry meng qing first, then there a chance that he might not take the princess as his 2nd wife if meng qing is that type of galz who refuse to share. the prince did this to force lin feng hand into marrying the princess but then also give him 1 years time to tie up loose end if he want to take meng qing as his 1st wife instead he can marry meng qing first and this incendent will still force lin feng to marry the princess. bying preforming super good at teh turney, even if the princess was to become his 2nd wife, it will still be a worthy prosition to be marry to then strongest in the nation.

      the 2nd condition as a favor for given his sister to lin feng, he want lin feng to take out his older brother so that he can take the throne.

  10. NeliMx   •  

    I have a feeling that Lin Feng will get more friendly with the crown prince?I mean Wu Ya is too shady to be trustworthy. 😐

  11. Diseased   •  

    He should kill her brother. I bet he would have done all that anyway if he had just asked. Instead he poisoned his own sister.

    • BufloSolja   •  

      Yea but from Wu Ya’s perspective, he can’t ‘gamble’ on that. Also, doing it like this will force Lin Feng to train much harder than he might have normally to beat them all.

  12. shrykos   •  

    Thanks for the chapter.

  13. A Yellow Koala   •  

    After reading comments I feel like an idiot for wondering who poisoned her :S *cry*

  14. spoilerproof   •  

    thanks for the chapter~
    I’m pretty sure Lin Feng realized that Duan Wu Ya was the one who poisoned Duan Xin Ye

  15. Franky   •  

    Duan Wu Ya plot is really amazing !!!!
    ~ he push lin feng became first high-official of Xue Yue so lin feng can kill Duan Wu Yao,
    if duan wu yao dead so the crown prince will be Duan Wu Yao

    perfect
