Chapter 6: You’re Going to Get Screwed
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_, Yuui
The young girl’s facial features were very outstanding and she had an unparalleled elegance. She exuded an extraordinarily refined, cold and beautiful aura.
On her tender earlobes hung green coloured jade pendants. Whenever they shook, they released a crisp jade ring, unexpectedly displaying how delicate she was.
Lin Feng was swept away by the young girl’s beauty, and he lowered his head in shame of his own looks.
Actually he just didn’t want people to see that both his eyes were glowing.
Marriage annulment; this was the legendary marriage annulment that created countless heaven-defying geniuses!
Beside the girl, was a teenager with the same white robed clothing. He was tall and had a handsome face. The mana fluctuations circulating around his body showed that he possessed the strength of a Qi Disciple level 10.
The white-robed teen swept Lin Feng with his glance and did not continue to look at him. Turning his eyes towards the rock which Lin Feng used the Northern Aurora Sword to destroy, he frowned and wrinkled his forehead, “Logically speaking, the person shouldn’t have been able to leave in time since we had already rushed over as soon as possible.”
The girl shook her head, “If the person’s gone then that’s that.”
The white-robed youth suddenly used his mana to cover his voice, speaking to the girl, “Junior apprentice sister Yanran, legend says that Xiao Yan was also a cultivating genius. It’s only due to some unknown reason that he depraved and became a piece of trash?”
Murong Yanran was a little unhappy with his actions and her eyebrows wrinkled, “There’s an outsider here, let’s stop talking about this.”
The white-robed youth gently laughed it off, “He’s just a country bumpkin. I’m using mana voice transmission, how could he possibly hear?”
Lin Feng remained stationary on the spot, blinking his eyes. He didn’t have the time to change into his Taoist clothes and was still wearing his rough cloth clothes. He did indeed look like a mountain villager.
Hearing his words, Murong Yanran shook her head, “It doesn’t matter if he is a genius or a loser, I still have to go break off this engagement. Even grandfather cannot force me to marry a person that I’ve never seen before.”
Lin Feng’s expression became increasingly simple and honest, but his heart was already bursting with joy, “Girl… Good job! Keep this up and remain unmoved by external pressure. Be steadfast and go break off the marriage, I’ve got high hopes for you!”
Once a genius, now a loser. Now his fiance was coming over to break off the marriage and humiliate him… Damn, this was definitely the fate of a MC of a fantasy novel.
Now, Lin Feng could not wait to rush and find that Xiao Yan. He’s finally understood, the system’s demands for disciples were absurdly high and probably only those legendary people blessed by the world; those story MCs who can actually enter its eyes.
Even though he was unable to prove it, but deducing from Xiao Budian’s circumstances, Lin Feng was 80% confident that Xiao Yan should match the system’s standards for approving disciples.
“Wait…This kind of MC with heaven-defying potential…”
Lin Feng suddenly thought, “Xiao Yan is simply incredibly unlucky right now. If Murong Yanran goes over to break off the engagement, he will most likely be forced to unleash his potential.
Though it is unclear if he is carrying an old grandpa around with him (something like a genie), or chances upon a godly magical item, or even finds a godly manual from the old books among his parents’ belongings…”
What is highly likely would be that as soon as Murong Yanran arrives to break off the engagement, Xiao Yan’s fighting spirit would be ignited, turning his fates around.
A golden carp in the pond could only become a dragon when it faces an insurmountable storm.
Xiao Yan only needs a tiny opportunity to get onto the right track. As the old saying goes: The wheels of fate will start turning. And once that happens, the kid would immediately be on an unstoppable path to transform into a hero.
Lin Feng didn’t plan to change the outcome of Xiao Yan becoming a hero. He just wanted to be involved in the process of him becoming a hero, in which he will be the storm which spurs Xiao Yan to change from a golden carp to a dragon.
In other words, he would become Xiao Yan’s old grandpa (genie).
However, Lin Feng couldn’t leave until he was done with Xiao Budian’s matters.
“If I allow Murong Yanran to go break off the marriage right now, Xiao Yan might find another old grandpa. Then I would lose my opportunity…”
This marriage had to be cancelled, but it definitely can’t be now.
At this moment, a thought appeared in his mind, a warm smile as bright as the sun naturally formed on his face.
The white-robed youth smiled and said, “If we can’t find the source of the mana fluctuation, then we should forget about it. We should rush over to the Xiao family in Wu Zhou City as fast as possible, it’s still a long journey from here to Wu Zhou City.”
The white-robe old man who hadn’t spoken the entire time, opened his mouth and said, “Yanran, You are extremely talented and hence, your future is immeasurable. You are a core disciple of the Sword of Radiance Sect. You must not waste your time on a mortal human. However, going over and breaking off a marriage is a disrespectful and unpleasant affair after all. Remember to find some way to compensate Xiao Yan.”
Murong Yanran and the white-robed youth nodded their heads saying, “We will act in compliance with Elder Ye’s teachings.”
The white-robed old man, Ye Ge, nodded his head in satisfaction and then prepared to continue on their journey. From the beginning to the end, he treated Lin Feng like he was invisible.
Under the influence of the system, even Ye Ge who was at the Foundation Establishment level could not identify Lin Feng as a cultivator.
Right at this moment, Lin Feng suddenly went and approached them, with a fearful look, “These… These three masters, are you guys legendary sword celestials?” His expression had just right a mixture of admiration and fear.
Murong Yanran slightly frowned but chose not to speak.
The white-robed youth’s face revealed a haughty expression, lightly nodding his head and said, “Yes, what do you want?”
Lin Feng’s face revealed an expression of great joy, hurriedly saying, “A demon has appeared in the village that I live in. Please help us get rid of it! Our entire village’s people will all be extremely grateful, please save us!”
The white-robed revealed a dismissive expression. Deserted wild mountains have lots of legends of demons and spirits, and usually they could not be taken seriously.
Lin Feng continued saying, “I saw it with my own eyes! The old peach tree that had originally been turned into charcoal by lightning suddenly grew out new branches and even blossomed beautiful peach blossoms…”
The white-robed youth waved his hands, cutting him off, “Dead trees rejuvenated during the spring aren’t new.”
Lin Feng repeatedly nodded his head, “Right, right, you are correct, but those peach blossoms can kill people. They killed a lot of people!”
Murong Yanran and the white-robed youth looked at each other, and started to gain interest. “Tell me, how did the peach blossoms kill a lot of people?”
Lin Feng hurriedly explained the course of how the peach blossoms flew down from the tree, and stuck itslf on the foreheads of people before flying back to the tree after sucking people dry.
The white-robed youth raised his eyebrows. Hearing what Lin Feng described, it did indeed seem like a peach tree became a demon and was causing trouble. Being able to use flying petals to kill people, this old peach tree had clearly gained intelligence and had a grasp over its own gifts and abilities.
This kind of demon would usually have formed a demon core. Thus, there’s value in killing it.
Murong Yanran’s eyebrows wrinkled and looked towards the white-robed elder Ye Ge, “Elder Ye, can we go? Otherwise, that tree demon would kill even more people.”
Ye Ge stroked his long beard, and then consulted Lin Feng about the general course of how the old peach tree killed people, patiently confirming every detail.
With a simple and honest face, Lin Feng patiently answered each of Ye Ge’s questions.
He wasn’t afraid of Ye Ge’s questioning because everything he said was true.
He only left out a tiny little detail.
Lin Feng did not tell them that the old peach tree could kill a Qi Disciple level 4 cultivator as easily as killing an ant.
Ye Ge repeatedly asked about certain problems. After confirming that there were no mistakes to Lin Feng’s responses, he finally nodded his head, “In the first place, destroying evil and upholding justice is the duty of Sword of Radiance Sect’s cultivators. Now that we are aware of this tree demon today, we cannot leave it alone. Young man, lead the way.”
Lin Feng’s was rejoiceful, profusely thanking them but silently laughing in his heart, “Excellent!”
You three could not have come at a better time, just in time to help me save my eldest disciple.
As the adversaries of my future second disciple, if I don’t screw you guys over then who would I screw?
