Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_, Yuui
Lin Feng sent away the waiter with an indifferent expression. Closing the door he could no longer control the happiness within him, with a smile blossoming on his face.
Murong Yanran has arrived at Wuzhou City, the legendary marriage annulment was finally about to happen.
Lin Feng turned his head towards Xiao Budian and said, “Silly boy, follow me.”
Xiao Budian’s big, black eyes turned, “Master, where are we going?”
Lin Feng smiled, “Originally you were about to have your first junior, but since you volunteered to be the most junior, so you’re about to have your first senior.”
Bringing along Xiao Budian, Lin Feng arrived at the side of the little lake that Xiao Yan visited regularly. He spread the polished thunder crystals on the grassy field beside the lake in a pattern to set up the magic formation for activating the Nine Heaven Thunder Summoning.
Even though based on his plan, Lin Feng did not necessarily have to fight, but you always need to be prepared for the worst.
After completing the setup, Lin Feng brought Xiao Budian along and headed towards the Xiao family’s mansion.
When they arrived outside of the mansion, they coincidentally saw Xiao Yan walking out from the door in a set of black clothes.
The black-clothed teen stopped walking but did not look back, only spitting out a sentence coldly.
“I will find you again three years later!”
The teen’s shadow was stretched out to a great length with the illumination of the sun. He looked lonely and desolate.
At the big door behind him you could see Murong Yanran’s small mouth slightly ajar, staring at Xiao Yan’s back blankly. In the young girl’s hand she was holding a contract that was shaking as if it was about to fall, as though it was a thousand pounds heavy.
Once he was done speaking, Xiao Yan walked out of the door by himself.
“Since you guys have already reached your goal, then please leave now.” An old voice came from within the yard; that was the Xiao family’s clan leader, Xiao Yan’s grandfather.
“Grandpa Xiao, Yanran apologizes to you for today’s matter. If you have time in the future please visit the Murong family!”
Her goal had already been reached and Murong Yanran also did not want to stay any longer. She left the Xiao family’s mansion together with the white-robed youth and Ye Ge.
“The little miss of the Murong family, I hope that in the future you will not regret your actions today. In addition, don’t think that you can do whatever you want just because you have the Sword of Radiance Sect backing you up. The Heaven Primal world is very big, forces stronger than the Sword of Radiance Sect are also not small in number…” The moment that Murong Yanran and co. were about to walk out of the door, a voice carrying slight aggression suddenly rose up.
The three people abruptly stopped on the spot, turning their heads and looking over.
Xiao Zhen’Er was beautifully standing on top of the walls of the mansion, rays of sunlight shone past her back, perfectly wrapping her within. From far away she was like a violet lotus flower blossoming within a world of black and white, pure and graceful, not sullied by this world…
Lin Feng was also captivated by Xiao Zhen’Er’s charm, but in his heart he was secretly delighted, ” It’s too obvious who’s good and bad. I don’t even need to think about how to take you in as a disciple. Once I take in Xiao Yan then you’ll also be in my palm.”
Facing the gazes of Murong Yanran and co., a slender golden flame suddenly appeared in the girl’s beautiful, limpid eyes.
Looking at the tiny golden fire in the girl’s eyes, Ye Ge’s body violently shook for an instant, a terrified expression covered his old face in an instant. In panic his dried hands grabbed onto Murong Yanran and the white-robed youth who were still puzzled, and then ran for his life.
Looking at Ye Ge’s actions, besides the Xiao family’s old clan leader, everybody else couldn’t help but be dumbfounded.
Lin Feng felt a jolt in his heart, “Even if she is already at Foundation Establishment stage at such a young age, she still shouldn’t frighten Ye Ge, who is also at the Foundation Establishment stage, so badly. Looks likes there’s something strange about the golden flame in her eyes just now…”
“This woman’s background must be exceptional, if she isn’t the holy maiden of an ancient clan then she is the princess of some sort of big country. If I’m wrong then I’ll reverse the order of letters in my name.”
Lin Feng was secretly glad that he did not rashly go and mess with this little girl whose background could be extremely terrifying.
Let’s just take in Xiao Yan first and then talk about it. It was obvious that this little girl would definitely follow Xiao Yan wherever he went. When Xiao Yan becomes my disciple then Xiao Zhen’Er won’t be far away.
When doing something, one has to have a good grasp over the main considerations of it.
While still in thought, Lin Feng brought Xiao Budian and quietly left the Xiao family’s mansion, chasing after Xiao Yan in the direction that he went.
Xiao Yan at this time would definitely go to the little lake at the northern part of the city and lick his wounds.
Sure enough Lin Feng had already caught up to Xiao Yan after a short while.
The black-clothed teen right now was like an injured lone wolf, his entire body emitting a cold, unwelcoming aura.
“Hehe, strength… Without strength you’re even worse than a pile of dogshit. At least no one dares to step on dogshit!” His shoulders lightly trembling, the teen’s hoarse and self-deprecating laughter lingered in the air, carrying a tinge of grief and anger.
Xiao Yan’s teeth bit down his lips hard, allowing a faint stream of blood to spread at the corners of his lips. Even though he did not display any inappropriate emotions in the hall, the words that Murong Yanran said were like blades cutting into his heart, making his entire body shake.
Grabbing the two rings in front of his chest hanging on a string, Xiao Yan appeared devastated.
His mother died of sickness many years ago; three years ago his father was seriously injured in a fight and died in the end, only leaving these two rings for him.
Before his father died, Xiao Yan once swore that he would definitely become a powerful cultivator and get revenge for his father.
But who knew that right after swearing his oath, a great change happened to his body the next day and he transformed from prodigy into trash. After this no matter how hard he worked he was only able march on the spot at Qi Disciple level 1.
“I must not give up, for father, for mother and for today!” Opening his left hand that had a bloodstain on it, Xiao Yan’s voice was hoarse but firm, “I don’t want to suffer such humiliation ever again!”
In the front, Xiao Yan was walking while setting his goals for the future, while behind him Lin Feng was watching with his blood boiling.
Sure enough, after the marriage annulment, this kid’s determination simply exploded. Just looking from the side, it felt like his body was harbouring an endless, dominating aura, like a surging river about to flood the lands.
Seeing that the old grandpas in those two rings still did not make a move, Lin Feng no longer hesitated, walking forward and blocking Xiao Yan.
Are you kidding me, those guys are being pulled along by a MC, they are in a favorable position. If I don’t grab hold of the chance, I won’t even be able to get any bit of soup.
Nowadays you also needed to fight for the position of old grandpa.
“Hehe, kid, looks like you need some help?”
Lin Feng casually said with a light chuckle.
Xiao Yan looked with a stunned expression at the youthful taoist wearing white taoist robes and a taoist crown in front of him. After being stunned for a moment he wrinkled his brows asking, “Who are you? What do you want?”
Lin Feng laughed coolly, “There is no rush to asking who I am, don’t you think that the problem you should care about the most is why you’ve reached such a stage?”
Xiao Yan’s gaze immediately became as cold as ice, “You know why?” Beneath his cold gaze was a blazing fire.
Lin Feng let out a long laugh, “Follow me and you will naturally know all of the details.”
Finishing his sentence, Lin Feng used the Cloud Dragon Disappearing Technique, grabbing Xiao Yan and soaring into the air, flying towards the little lake at the northern part of the city.
Xiao Yan was greatly startled but right now his level was only Qi Disciple level 1. He simply could not break free from Lin Feng’s grip. He calmed down and started observing, immediately being struck with awe in his heart.
As he used the Cloud Dragon Disappearing Technique, it was like Lin Feng had turned into a preeminent divine dragon outside of the heavens soaring in the clouds.
A divine dragon, when it moves, it soars above the nine heavens, when hidden, it roams within the four seas. It’s breath becomes clouds, it’s spit becomes rain, controlling the winds and thunder with endless might.
The essence and spirit of the Cloud Dragon Disappearing Technique was displayed perfectly by Lin Feng.
But what made Xiao Yan the most impressed was still Xiao Budian who looked to be only 3, 4 years of age and following closely behind Lin Feng.
“Master, wait for me.” Xiao Budian was also using the body movements of Cloud Dragon Disappearing Technique. His doll-like appearance carried a sort of a heavenly aura like an immortal, making him look even more remarkable.
Xiao Yan has seen many Qi Disciple level 4 cultivators, but kids that are able to reach a level of Qi Disciple level 4 at Xiao Budian’s age, don’t even mention seeing it, Xiao Yan has never even heard of it before.
Xiao Yan did not feel much pressure from Lin Feng. The feeling that Lin Feng gave him was like a completely normal person that hadn’t practised any tao techniques.
But it was exactly this young taoist wearing a white taoist robe with a taoist crown that produced a Xiao Budian. Being able to produce such an outstanding disciple, his own level of cultivation naturally can’t be too low and he definitely would not be a normal human.
Then there’s only one explanation left. This seemingly young taoist has already reached the level of reincarnation, which was why Xiao Yan cannot see through him.
“Maybe… He really does know what’s wrong with my body?” Xiao Yan couldn’t resist thinking.
Lin Feng wasn’t clear about Xiao Yan’s psychological state, but seeing his expression he knows that he has already successfully established the image of a master in Xiao Yan’s heart.
This is precisely the reason why he wanted to bring Xiao Budian along.
He had no choice, this kid was honestly too outstanding of an advertisement. He fully displayed to the outer world the results of Lin Feng’s teachings. Sometimes Lin Feng himself also rejoiced about encountering Xiao Budian the earliest. This would directly reduce the difficulty of tricking people to become his disciple in the future.
Reaching the lakeside in the blink of an eye, Lin Feng put down Xiao Yan. Xiao Yan looked at Xiao Budian and then looked at Lin Feng, asking after taking a deep breath, “Please tell me senior, what exactly is wrong with my body?”
Lin Feng smiled slightly, extending his finger and lightly tapping Xiao Yan’s chest, “Your problem lies is in these two rings!”
