Chapter 291: He Was Acting Silly!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Yue Hongyan was already in position, but Shi Shaogan shouted suddenly, “Hold a minute”. This made her crease her brows and she stopped moving.
This was only a sparring contest. If their lives were at stake, Yue Hongyan would not have bothered about what he said. She would take the opportunity to take him down as he spouted nonsense.
Furthermore, as Shi Shaogan blurted out the words, Shi Xingyun closed her eyes and her face revealed a desperate expression.
Shi Zongyue, the Commander-in-chief and Immortal Soul Stage Elder from the Great Qin Empire that took part in this conference, also revealed an awkward and furious look on his face.
“What they are doing?” Lin Feng creased his brows, “Shi Zongyue and Shi Xingyun looks as if they are going for a funeral. I think he does not have any killer moves up his sleeves.”
Yue Hongyan creased her brows at the same time, “What?”
Shi Shaogan coughed and looked at Yue Hongyan, saying seriously, “Miss Hongyan, I am proposing to you officially. I hope that you will marry me as my wife.”
His tone was very serious and did not seem like he had any intention of harassing and fooling with her.
At that moment, the entire place was silent.
After a long while, Lin Feng moved his stiff neck and looked at the sky, “Why do I feel that a crow had just flown over?”
When he looked back, he saw that everyone was stunned. The Immortal Soul Stage Elder was shocked beyond words while the Nascent Soul Stage Elder was stunned. The entire Aurous Core Stage cultivators were fossilized, while the Foundation Establishment Stage cultivators were stoned like clay statues.
The entire lakeside of the Sea of the Northern Wind was dead silent even though hundreds of people were gathered over there. Only the cold wind could be heard.
Even the Great Qin Empire camp was in a state of shock and looking at Shi Shaogan in the Hidden Dragon Gorge.
Only Shi Zongyue and Shi Xingyun were still bursting with energy and they both let out a silent sigh.
The air continued to echo Shi Shaogan’s voice, “After we exit the Hidden Dragon Gorge, I will propose marriage to the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. But I think it is more appropriate for you to know my feelings first. At the same time, I hope that you will agree to my proposal.”
After a few moments, everyone started to react. There were a lot of stares at the Great Qin Empire camp. Although there was no laughter, the stares made the people from the Great Qin Empire extremely embarrassed.
Jiao Junchen was also stunned in place for a few moments before he laughed, “This person has character. He is a very straightforward person.”
Shi Xingyun accepted fate and looked desolate. She lost her aura and steadiness of a Great Qin Empire princess.
“You do not know, that is why you phrase it that way.” Shi Xingyun looked at Jiao Junchen and said, “If the lady standing in front of him was Dao Yuting, he will have done the same thing.”
Jiao Junchen was speechless at this point.
Lin Feng did not know whether to laugh or cry as he looked at Shi Shaogan confessing. He felt as if a hundred thousand grassland horses filled with mud was sprinting towards him.
“At first, I thought that you were a stuck-up, violent and shallow person. Who knew that you had a funny side to you, beneath that cool demeanor!”
Lin Feng felt a sense of powerlessness, “You are such a silly man, regardless of whether you are joking or serious, what are you trying to do here? Do you not look at the situation before acting?”
You have spoilt the atmosphere of this spiritual conference!
Shi Zongyue coughed and looked towards Lin Feng, saying, “My grandson…. he is a little innocent and does not go by the rules. If he has offended you in any way, I hope that Master Lin will forgive him.”
Lin Feng replied, “It is fine, it is fine.”
Shi Zongyue’s gaze also flashed a hint of helplessness and fury. He swore that if Shi Shaogan was not his biological grandson and that if he was not that talented, he would personally kill him.
In the abovementioned conditions, even if he did not fulfill either one, Shi Zongyue would still kill him.
“My grandson is a little reckless, but his heart is sincere.” Shi Zongyue straightened his expression and said seriously, “I shall officially propose marriage for Shaogan to wed your disciple, Master Lin. Please consider carefully.”
Lin Feng looked at Shi Zongyue but was speechless. Did he not hear what Shi Xingyun mentioned just now?
If Dao Yuting was standing in front of him, would his grandson have act out such a silly side to him?
Lin Feng had reason to believe that Shi Shaogan would find an opportunity to act silly in front of Dao Yuting after confessing to Yue Hongyan.
At this point, Lin Feng could tell that Shi Shaogan was not a Casanova who tried to lay his hands on beauties that he coveted. It was just that he lacked the knowledge to deal with gender relationships.
Every man liked beauties, but as for Shi Shaogan…he was a little funny in that aspect.
But as Lin Feng looked at Shi Zongyue, he realized that Shi Zongyue was very serious, which showed that he was really asking Lin Feng to consider such a proposal and that he really wanted Shi Shaogan to wed Yue Hongyan.
Lin Feng’s pupils shrunk slightly. Shi Zongyue’s intention was clear, that was, he wanted them to be related by marriage.
A marriage between the Great Qin Empire and the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
It was not just applicable to countries or families. They could also be related by marriage in the world of cultivators.
A related marriage between sects, between aristocrats and between sects and aristocrats also existed.
To the Great Qin Empire, a related marriage was common.
Although Shi Shaogan’s actions were silly, but if he managed to wed Yue Hongyan, whatever that ensued could be considered a success.
Of course, that was secondary. To Shi Zongyue, building a close relationship with the Celestial Sect of Wonders was beneficial to the Great Qin Empire and himself.
Especially now when the pressure was mounting as the Great Zhou Empire was becoming more and more prosperous.
The logic behind this was simple. Lin Feng could understand it straight away, but it did not mean that he agreed.
“I will leave it up to Hongyan. If she fancies your grandson, I will be glad to give my blessings. But if she has no fate with your grandson, I will not force it upon her either.”
Lin Feng’s tone of voice was calm and pleasant, but his words clearly revealed what he felt.
Shi Zongyue creased his brows. He wanted to say something but the situation in the Hidden Dragon Gorge changed drastically suddenly.
Yue Hongyan went cold as she faced Shi Shaogan and her thin brows gradually creased.
She suddenly roared loudly and the mana in her body surged. The all-conquering Black Ember Pole-Ax was released upon Shi Shaogan, causing him to flail as he flew backward.
“Ugh!” Shi Shaogan’s words were stuck in his throat. Although he was protected by his own mana, he was swept away by Yue Hongyan’s Black Ember Pole-Ax.
After Yue Hongyan unleashed her move on him, she did not continue to exploit her advantage. Rather, she restrained her powers and revealed a perplexed look on her face.
“What, the gibberish that you were spouting just now was not a ploy to distract me?”
Yue Hongyan’s face continued to reveal her confusion and disbelief.
The restless spectators were all silent again and were stoned in position.
As the cold wind blew, the entire venue resonated with a screeching sound.
Even the experienced Shi Zongyue was speechless at this point and he could only stare blankly at the Hidden Dragon Gorge.
Lin Feng’s lips twitched for a moment before he turned to look at Shi Zongyue. He laughed, “About that, my disciple, uh…is very innocent too. She is not very polite. I seek your forgiveness, Prince Anliang.”
Shi Zongyue laughed as he looked at the sky, laughing, “It is fine, it is fine. Master Lin, you are too kind.”
Within the Great Qin Empire camp, both Jiao Junchen and Shi Xingyun looked at each other without speaking.
After a long while, Jiao Junchen laughed, “One who does not follow the rhythm and one who does not know how to adapt. This show is dead. Do not be too worried.”
Jiao Junchen did not know that Yue Hongyan was not inadaptable. It was just that after she had adapted, she learned that her heart could only contain one person.
Shi Xingyun laughed bitterly, “I am even more worried now.”
Seeing that Jiao Junchen was looking at her curiously, Shi Xingyun sighed again, “It seems that if I had to make a choice between the two, I will rather Shaogan be facing Dao Yuting now. She will at most reject him straight up.”
“Now that he met Yue Hongyan who did not know how to react to the situation, I fear that Shaogan will only misunderstand her and cause something even more embarrassing to pop up.”
Inside the Hidden Dragon Gorge, Yue Hongyan looked at Shi Shaogan unhappily, “Since it is not a tactic, why are you talking so much crap?”
Shi Shaogan flipped himself over and brushed off the grass on his hair. He looked at Yue Hongyan and nodded his head seriously, “I know, to win the heart of someone like you, I have to emerge victorious against you first.”
“In this case, let me do it!”
After finishing his words, he gathered his entire body’s worth of mana and approached Yue Hongyan in his best condition.
His reaction caused everyone outside the gorge to be confused over whether they should laugh or not.
Jiao Junchen was stunned again, while Shi Xingyun shut her eyes in desolation, “It is really the case.”
Yue Hongyan did not think further about it. She only knew that Shi Shaogan was very dangerous and his powers were strong.
Two light dragons, one red and one yellow, began to revolve around Shi Shaogan’s body surroundings in mid-space. Two different auras of mana began to surface and they were very powerful.
The secret skill of the Great Qin Empire was unleashed. There were the Imperial Script of the Crimson Dragon and the Imperial Script of the Yellow Dragon, out of the five Secret Manual of the Imperial True Dragons.
Shi Shaogan carried two different spells in his hands. His left hand was opening and closing swiftly and carried a vigorous flame on it.
Whereas his right hand conjured a spell that remained solid in place and was extremely dense.
Shi Shaogan’s eyes were flashing with red and yellow radiance while his lips lighted up. He let out a weird tune from his mouth that was like a low-pitched hum by the dragon clan.
“Quick!” Following Shi Shaogan’s light shout, the light dragons around him roared at Yue Hongyan. Their stature was terrifying.
