Chapter 347: The Three Conditions
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
After hearing Xiao Yan’s description, Lin Feng’s gaze flashed, “Oh? Do you know who that is?”
Xiao Yan shook his head, “Not sure. I can only confirm that this person’s cultivation is very high. If I were to fight him, I will be unable to retaliate at all. Although I did not make a move, I had that feeling.”
Lin Feng heard that and nodded his head slightly, “Mm, he is at least in the cultivation of the Nascent Soul Stage.”
Xiao Yan had already attained the cultivation in the intermediate stage of the Aurous Core Stage. Before he cultivated the Nanming Primordial Fire and got into trouble, his Grand Sun Primordial Fire and Nefarious Spectral Primordial Fire’s combination could overwhelm a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator in the beginner stage. Even a cultivator in the intermediate stage of the Nascent Soul Stage might not be able to match up to him.
At least a supreme cultivator who had cultivated the Heaven and Earth Appearance Mantra in the advanced stage of the Nascent Soul Stage was required.
But Xiao Yan was still able to battle a cultivator in the advanced stage of the Nascent Soul Stage.
If he claims to not have any chance against this cultivator even before they had even fought, then this guy must be a very powerful Nascent Soul Stage cultivator.
Xiao Yan nodded his head repeatedly, “I also think so. He only said that he is bringing me to see Zhener. Besides that, he did not even speak. After reaching the place where Zhener was at, he left quickly. Zhener did not even tell me who that was. Seeing that she was unwilling to talk about him, I did not probe.”
Xiao Budian interrupted, “Big Senior, maybe this guy is your love rival?”
Xiao Yan replied unforgivingly, “No, from his attitude and the tone of Zhener’s voice when she mentioned him, he should be her elder. I think they should be quite close, most probably an elder that is blood-related to her.”
Zhu Yi creased his brows, “Her father?”
Xiao Yan shook his head, “I am not sure. If that is the case, that is good news. At least that means that he has given his silent consent with regards to things between Zhener and I, but…”
He sighed, “But it seems like he is not her father.”
Everyone was silent. If that person is only her uncle, such a secret arrangement will explain that there is a great possibility that her family is disapproving of her relationship with Xiao Yan.”
Especially Xiao Zhener’s parents, who might not approve of it.
Lin Feng was not one who was particularly fond of talking about conspiracy theories, but he had never minded using the evilest thoughts to speculate about others.
Although it is commonly said that one should not harbor evil thoughts, it is also necessary to guard against others. That person had helped Xiao Yan and Xiao Zhener secretly, which meant that he felt sorry for Xiao Zhener and could not bear to keep Xiao Yan and her separate.
However, he could have sinister intentions too. After knowing Xiao Yan’s background, he could exploit Xiao Yan and Lin Feng to gain personal benefits.
“Let us hope he is a friend and not a foe.” Lin Feng thought in his head, before looking at the troubled Xiao Yan.
Lin Feng laughed, “Worried about your spouse?”
Xiao Yan replied, “I hope to be together with Zhener. If her family forces her to do something she does not want to, I will take her away for sure. But if it is that way, she may be unhappy.”
“I can see that Zhener’s relationship with her family is very good. I do not want her to be put in a difficult spot.” Xiao Yan said with a sense of loss. “That is why I am thinking that if I can get the approval of her family members, it will be great.”
Lin Feng coughed and he scanned the rest of his disciples, “This is a rather serious conversation. If it is not handled properly, there will be a lot of trouble.”
“Although the few of you are single, you will all face such a problem in the future. Come, tell me about what you think.” Lin Feng looked at Yue Hongyan and Tuntun, “Oh, the two of you need to consider the relationship between a daughter-in-law and a mother-in-law. But the logic is the same.”
Xiao Budian and the rest looked at one another. Tuntun twisted her lips and said unceremoniously, “What is so difficult about this? Firstly, we copulate and then when we have the next generation, all the problems will be settled!”
“Kekekeke…” Everyone coughed. They almost choked on their saliva. Xiao Yan pointed at Tuntun and he opened his eyes wide without speaking.
Although he knew Tuntun’s train of thought, Lin Feng was also dumbfounded. He was shocked by her perspective of doing things first and worrying later.
“This is actually a pretty good idea.” Lin Feng laughed bitterly and looked at the rest, “What do you all think?”
Wang Lin thought for a moment and answered hesitantly, “There is a famous saying in my hometown village, ‘The more the mother-in-law looks at the son-in-law, the closer they get’. Big Senior, you can try building a close relationship with Zhener’s mother first followed by progressing slowly to Zhener’s father.”
As the crowd heard it, their eyes brightened. Lin Feng nodded his head in agreement, “Oh, that is not a bad idea. It is a more reliable idea.”
Xiao Yan was happy as he heard the idea but he was soon troubled. “But, what do I talk about with her mother? I do not know what she likes.”
Xiao Budian scoffed, “Stupid! Just ask Zhener directly.”
Zhu Yi creased his brows slightly and said, “Just fish some news out about her father from her.”
“You do not have to focus on her interests, but it is still pertinent to be able to speak in the same language so that you can communicate with her.”
Everyone was debating about the matter. They exhibited a wide variety of ideas, which gave Xiao Yan a lot of ideas.
Lin Feng laughed, “Xiao Yan, you must bring her back successfully. You must fulfill both the soft and hard aspects.”
“The soft aspect, which is your guy to girl relationship, I believe that you and Zhener know what to do.”
Xiao Yan nodded his head repeatedly and asked curiously, “Master, what about the hard aspect…what does it mean?”
Lin Feng said, “The hard aspect means that your conditions must be to the liking of her parents.”
All the disciples looked at Lin Feng curiously, “What are the conditions?”
Lin Feng looked at Xiao Yan first, “Oh, your appearance is fine. It should not be a problem.”
Xiao Yan laughed bitterly, “Master…”
“Please treat your appearance seriously,” Lin Feng waved his hand. “Your appearance must at least be decent. This is actually very important in making your first impression. If the first impression is not good, it will be difficult to save yourself.”
Xiao Yan cried, “Master, I am not just a little handsome. I am extremely charming!”
Around him, Xiao Budian and the rest scoffed at him and were in disdain of his boastful words.
Lin Feng laughed, “After, you must always desire to seek improvement and also have the potential to be unearthed.”
He looked at Xiao Yan and laughed, “Oh, you fulfill these conditions…”
Xiao Yan had just smiled before he heard Lin Feng followed with, “…Before you screw yourself over from this, you have fulfilled these conditions.”
Xiao Budian, Tuntun, and the rest could not help but laugh. Xiao Yan was dumbfounded and started to laugh bitterly after a while.
Lin Feng continued saying, “But apart from this, there are three more conditions before you can deal with your father-in-law and mother-in-law.”
Xiao Yan focused and the others stopped laughing, focusing their attention on Lin Feng.
Lin Feng coughed and said seriously, “These three conditions are a house, cart and money.”
“Huh?” Xiao Yan and the rest opened their eyes wide and they looked stunned.
After a while, Xiao Yan said, “Master, as for a house, I can understand. Is it referring to a house that we can live in? As for the cart and money, I am a little confused. I have only seen a horse-cart, bull-cart, and other similar carts. It cannot be a small little cart used to ferry goods around, surely?”
“I am totally unsure about what money means. Even if it is a house or a cart, I am also unsure of what it has to do with her parents.”
Lin Feng shook his head while laughing, “Actually, you do not understand all of them.”
“The so-called house is one where you live in. But in our context, it is the place where you cultivate!”
Lin Feng followed with, “‘Mantras, Land, Wealth, and Partner’. As for ‘Mantras’, whatever I taught you is the best of the best. But as for ‘Land’, you have a problem.”
“I am very happy for you to continue living at Mount Yujing after you married. But the problem is, if you think about it, if you want to get intimate with your wife, there may be people listening to the both of you. That will be such a spoilsport, won’t it?”
Xiao Yan stoned in position. Suddenly, he turned his head and looked fiercely at Xiao Budian and Tuntun.
Tuntun snorted and turned her head around. But her eyes were full of laughing intent and they were rolling about in glee.
Xiao Budian laughed cheekily and looked at Xiao Yan with puppy eyes.
But the more he did this, the more furious Xiao Yan was. He waved his fist at Xiao Budian.
Lin Feng continued, “As for the cart, your interpretation as a horse-cart is accurate. Its purpose is to chauffeur people around.”
His terrifying voice was like the devil speaking into Xiao Yan’s ears, “Think about it. With a cart that can ferry people around, isn’t it such a cool thing in front of your future parents?”
“Even if they are not concerned about it, it will be saving your face in front of other gossipmongers.”
Xiao Yan’s eyes brightened and looked at Jieyu, “Master, is it just like you?”
Lin Feng laughed while nodding his head, “You learn fast.”
“As for money, it is even more simple. It is the ‘Wealth’ inside the ‘Mantras, Land, Wealth, Partner.’”
Zhuge Fengling was stunned as she saw Lin Feng and his disciples having fun. She felt envious, “It is so nice to have such a fine master-disciple relationship!”
As they were laughing and having fun, they had already reached Mount Yujing. Just as they landed on the peak, they saw Kang Nanhua welcoming them, “Welcome back to Mount Yujing, Master.”
Lin Feng saw his expression and could not help but ask, “Nanhua, what is it?”
Kang Nanhua nodded his head slightly, “There is news from Shazhou saying that the Great Zhou Empire had sent people to deliver Zhu Yi’s examination script.”
