Chapter 472: Risking It Big
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
To Lin Feng, he was never scared of a strong opponent. If his powers were indeed weaker, it was fine for him to lose.
But he was afraid of having a lousy partner. If he could have overcome the opponent, but lost because his partner dragged him down, he would be very agitated.
Regarding Luo Qingwu’s situation, Lin Feng developed a headache because of it.
But he remained calm on the outlook and looked at Jun Zining, “What is the detailed situation?”
Jun Zining lowered her head and answered, “She is being kept safely at a small house in the Luo Family, with her mother accompanying her.”
“A while ago, the Luo and the Yang Family engaged in a serious conflict again. This time round, the clash is very intense. There were deaths. In the conflict…the place Qingwu was staying at was attacked.”
Lin Feng’s expression did not change, “She landed in the hands of the Yang Family?”
“No, she didn’t.’ Jun Zining shook her hand and answered, “But during the chaos, she ran away from there. Luckily, someone from the Great Zhou Empire came to the Ancient Yuantian World. Qingwu sneaked into a sedan of theirs and arrived at the Divine Lands.”
Lin Feng felt a worse headache.
The 7 Families of the Ancient Yuantian World were the profit representatives of the various great powers in the Divine Lands. Behind the Luo Family was the Great Zhou Empire. Lin Feng knew this long ago, but he did not think that Luo Qingwu would actually sneak into the Divine Lands.
The person who was sent to the Ancient Yuantian World by the Great Zhou Empire should have been a brilliant person, regardless of his cultivation. He would have discovered her among his group. But he still let her follow them to the Divine Lands. What was he planning? This was very unexpected.
Or maybe he had already found out her identity but did not know that her Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl was damaged, so he let her stay?
This caused another problem for Lin Feng.
Precisely because the Luo Family was more of a hindrance than help, it was inconvenient for Lin Feng to find Luo Qingwu. At least stopped her before she changed her mind, otherwise even if she came to the mountain, the result would not be as expected.
He wanted to accept a disciple, not to kidnap anyone.
“That’s why I say that such a rebellious kid is a problem.” Lin Feng laughed bitterly in his heart, “At this time, I need someone to counsel her. But I can’t do it and nobody in the Celestial Sect of Wonders can do it, except for…”
Lin Feng’s vision landed on Jun Zining and saw that she was looking at him uncomfortably.
At the end, she was just a 12 year old lady.
Lin Feng said calmly, “I am quite confident of healing her damaged Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl. If she is willing, she can come to Mount Yujing.”
Jun Zining revealed an excited look on her face and nodded her head repeatedly, “Thank you Elder, Thank you Elder.”
Previously, she felt uncomfortable because she thought that she was being too disrespectful by telling Luo Qingwu’s problems to Lin Feng. She was afraid that Lin Feng would be unhappy with it. But now, it seemed that Lin Feng did not mind.
This caused Jun Zining to heave a sigh of relief, “Luckily, this Elder Lin is magnanimous, otherwise I would have implicated Qingwu.”
But following that, Jun Zining was troubled again. Lin Feng did not keep a grudge, but if Luo Qingwu wanted to heal her own Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl, she had to approach by herself. She could not expect Lin Feng to go and find her.
Jun Zining looked troubled again. Previously, when she communicated with Luo Qingwu, she could hear that Luo Qingwu had not changed her mind yet. How could she approach Lin Feng for help personally?
After recalling that she caused Luo Qingwu’s Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl to be damaged after asking her out for a walk, Jun Zining felt slightly unbearable. After thinking for a while, she said to Lin Feng, “Elder, I wish to find Qingwu and bring her here. Please let me do so.”
She made up her mind and decided to counsel Qingwu after finding her. She wanted to put in some good words for Lin Feng, so that Luo Qingwu would be willing to come to Mount Yujing at the very least.
Jun Zining felt that she had to be quick. If she dragged, Lin Feng might change his word. That would be disastrous then.
Lin Feng thought, “For you to initiate this, it is definitely the best.”
He nodded his head and said, “No harm, go and do what you need to.”
He looked at Jun Zining and pointed in the direction of the Inferno Precipice, where Xiao Yan resided. “Go there and find my disciple, Xiao Yan. Borrow the Black Cloud Flag from him. The Great Zhou Empire is very far from Mount Kunlun. The Black Cloud Flag can help you to travel faster.”
For such a long distance, only someone in the Nascent Soul Stage could break through space and travel across it. If one walked, she would take forever to reach there.
If it was the disciple of the Celestial Sect of Wonders, Lin Feng would send the Kui Cow King or Jieyu to send them. But Jun Zining had not entered the sect yet and was only a guest. To use Jieyu to send her would be too much.
If it was a magic item, Jun Zining had not established her foundation, thus she could not command it. What was suitable was only the Black Cloud Flag, that could shift space.
Jun Zining was too excited and bowed towards him, “Thank you Elder!” She approached the Inferno Precipice to retrieve the item.
Lin Feng watched as Jun Zining left, thinking, “She is so anxious, I hope she will disappoint.”
After sending her off, Lin Feng pondered for moment and summoned Dao Zhiqiang.
He came before Lin Feng and greeted him, “My Master.”
Lin Feng looked at Dao Zhiqiang and could not help but smile. Dao Zhiqiang’s cultivation talent was average. Under normal conditions, he could promote to the Aurous Core Stage. To form a yellow pill was his limit.
Even in such a holy ground like Mount Yujing and with Lin Feng’s help, his probability of forming the Nascent Soul was almost zero.
But he handled the everyday stuff well. He was a meticulous and hardworking person. As a supervisor, he was a talent.
Before Dao Zhiqiang came to the mountains, the daily chores of the Celestial Sect of Wonders were managed by Kang Nanhua and Zhu Yi. With Dao Zhiqiang, they were relieved of their duties. Furthermore, Dao Zhiqiang did it quite well and managed the various chores nicely.
He was also a well-behaved chap. Whatever that he was sent to do, he would do it diligently. He would not ask too much if he was not told. He controlled himself well.
Lin Feng looked at Dao Zhiqiang and said, “Today, I will let Song Qingyuan from the Heaven Lake Sect off the mountain.”
Dao Zhiqiang did not reply and just stood there, listening to Lin Feng.
Lin Feng said, “As for your daughter, do not worry. As Song Qingyuan return this time without any anything to him, he won’t trouble your daughter. On the other hand, he will treat her better.”
Dao Zhiqiang heaved a sigh of relief and bowed towards Lin Feng again, “Thank you Master, I am grateful towards you.”
Lin Feng nodded his head and used his mana to send Dao Zhiqiang off. As the Purple Clouds surged, Song Qingyuan was brought before him.
Over these period of time, Song Qingyuan had been confined on Mount Yujing and his movements were restricted to a stone room.
He was obedient and did not rebel. He waited patiently for Lin Feng to deal with him. Although there were times that he was frustrated, on the whole, he was very calm. Normally, he would stay in the stone room to cultivate and comprehend mantras.
“The disciples of the Celestial Sect of Wonders are indeed fortunate. The spiritual energy on Mount Yujing is rich. Even the Holy Ground in the deep end of the Heaven Lake Sect’s caves cannot compare!”
If he was not like a prisoner, Song Qingyuan would like to stay on the mountain without leaving.
As he saw Lin Feng again, Song Qingyuan was a little uncomfortable. He greeted Lin Feng, “I am Song Qingyuan. I have seen Elder Lin before.”
Lin Feng asked, “How are you?”
“To cultivate in your mountain, it is my fortune.” Song Qingyuan paused for a moment and answered honestly, “But I still hope to return to the Snow Mountains, as my elders may have missed me. I hope that Elder Lin will grant me this wish.”
Lin Feng revealed a light smile, “That is possible. Please help me to convey my greetings to your master.” After saying, he sent Song Qingyuan down the mountain using his mana.
As he saw that he was looking at Mount Kunlun, Song Qingyuan was stunned. He took in a deep breath and lifted his head to look at space.
He recalled that he had once coincidentally saw Dao Zhiqiang moving freely on the mountain.
“Maybe…” Song Qingyuan squinted his eyes, “I have to report to Master quickly.”
Lin Feng sat on the mountains and looked beyond space. He saw Song Qingyuan’s back view and could not help but smile. He could not let Dao Zhiqiang appear in front of Song Qingyuan. That would have been revealing too much.
It was fine just the way it was. People often liked to take whatever they saw coincidentally as reality.
After settling Dao Zhiqiang and Song Qingyuan, Jun Zining had already gotten the Black Cloud Flag from Xiao Yan. She came to bid Lin Feng goodbye and was sent down the mountain by Lin Feng. She started her journey towards the Great Zhou Empire.
“Now, let us begin.” Lin Feng’s awareness entered the system’s lucky draw. Without even looking at the dice lucky draw system and the roulette lucky draw system, he entered the lot drawing lucky draw system.
The winning items of the dice and roulette lucky draw system were pre-determined by the system.
Whereas the lot drawing lucky draw system had a special prize, which can be used to change for any item in the list of items in the exchange system.
If the red lot was drawn, it was the special prize. He could get the item that he wanted then, by changing the lot with it, even if the item might cost hundreds of thousands of exchange points.
From the Spiritual Conference of Huanghai to the destruction of the Aeolus Sect at Mount Kunlun to the big harvest at the Secret Manual of Kun Peng and the Cloud Forest World, Lin Feng had accumulated enough chips for this day. He wanted to risk it all.
Lin Feng opened the first page of the exchange system. Without even looking, he went straight down to the last few items on the menu and laughed to himself, “What dice or roulette, they can stay at one side. I am going to use this opportunity to get a few good items.”
