Chapter 279 – Sleep (1)
When Liu Qinxin revealed her hidden card, Zhao Feng’s confidence instantly disappeared. It was as if he had fallen from the clouds into hell.
“True Spirit Realm. Her real cultivation is at the True Spirit Realm and her strength is probably even stronger than Liu Yuan’s with her bloodline power… ”
Zhao Feng’s mind spun.
When he had met Liu Qinxin the first time and scanned her with his God’s Spiritual Eye, it had been stopped by a mysterious power which stopped him from seeing through the God’s Spiritual Eye and Liu Qinxin had sensed it.
At that time, Liu Qinxin’s Spiritual Sense was already not any weaker than a normal True Spirit Realm’s.
Zhao Feng had originally thought that Liu Qinxin’s bloodline was extremely special and her cultivation was close to the True Spirit Realm. Delving deeper with his God’s Spiritual Eye would definitely be sensed by Liu Qinxin.
As her true cultivation was revealed, everything could be understood.
“Feng, according to the bet, you have no chances of winning.”
Zhao Feng had used all his means available to escape from Liu Yuan’s pursuit.
It was already incredible for a cultivator at the 7th Sky to do this, but if Zhao Feng was to fight Liu Yuan, the chances of winning were low.
At this moment, Zhao Feng needed to fight Liu Qinxin head on and not run away.
Liu Qinxin was the disciple of the women who specialised in the ‘Dao of Life’ and she had a bloodline power, making her more difficult to deal with than Liu Yuan.
Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye analysed the chances of winning and it came out with less than 30%.
“Of course, you can go back on the bet, I won’t force you.”
Liu QInxin calmly faced Zhao Feng. If the latter went back on his word and ran away, it would disappoint her. No matter how excellent people like this were, they had no right to be her husband.
Zhao Feng stood still and his expression became composed once again.
“I didn’t admit defeat.”
Zhao Feng turned around and looked straight at Liu Qinxin.
At this point in time, Zhao Feng could even smell the scent of Liu Qinxin.
The four eyes locked together.
Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye was opened. The reason why he had close to a 30% chance of winning was because of the God’s Spiritual Eye.
In the depths of the abyss inside his azure left, an occasional flicker of ice blue would appear.
Zhao Feng’s mental energy level was a bit inferior to normal True Spirit Realm cultivator’s, but when that blue aura would appear, it was comparable to normal True Human Rank cultivator’s.
Liu Qinxin didn’t make any moves and she stared into Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye.
Although they were extremely close to one another, the speed of mental energy attacks was still faster than physical attacks.
An icy blue aura appeared in Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye and instantly, the power of his eye rose.
A wisp of mental energy power extended as Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye became luring.
Liu Qinxin’s heart trembled as her consciousness tried to block it. At the critical point, she steeled her will and opened her bloodline power.
A silver glow appeared on her alluring figure. She seemed like a goddess under the moon.
The cultivation of the True Spirit Realm and the power of a mysterious bloodline intensified the pressure on Zhao Feng.
Only when cold sweat appeared on his forehead did Zhao Feng give up.
“It’s pointless, the gap in cultivation is unbreachable.” Liu Qinxin sighed.
Zhao Feng shook his head bitterly as his usual cold expression suddenly became warm.
“Qinxin, did you know that the first time I saw you, my heart was moved?”
Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye became full of depth and unusual warmth.
He was full of emotion as he looked at the girl in front of him.
“Then why did you… ”
Liu QInxin paused, she didn’t think that Zhao Feng would suddenly confess to her. Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye used a weird way to pass through the gaps of motions.
Liu QInxin didn’t realise that her eyes had started to turn red and watery.
“Qinxin, I know I’m wrong, I’ve decided to marry you.”
Zhao Feng’s emotional eyes that seemed to be able to melt ice slowly eroded her senses.
Bit by bit, Zhao Feng slowly approached Liu Qinxin and gently touched her shoulder.
“Feng, do you know? When I found out that you had ran away, I felt extremely cold. At that time I just wanted to find you and ask why… ”
Liu Qinxin’s watery eyes were filled with joy. She had fallen into Zhao Feng’s mental energy skill and fell onto Zhao Feng’s chest.
Zhao Feng was slightly dazed – the situation was far smoother than what he had imagined.
Before, he had used all his power and couldn’t pull away her consciousness. But right now, he had used a simple mental energy illlusion to succeed.
At this instant, Liu Qinxin had fallen to Zhao Feng and her emotions could be controlled by the latter.
“So the flaw in her heart is me. That’s why I could have unimaginable success.”
Zhao Feng’s emotions were complex and he didn’t know what he felt. He once again hugged the beauty whose smell and soft body almost made him fly.
Zhao Feng’s mental energy technique suddenly stopped and one of his hands was put on Liu Qinxin’s neck.
Liu Qinxin awoke from the dream and found that she was hugging the opposing party tightly and her face turned red hot.
Although Zhao Feng’s hand was put on her neck, there was no pressure – as if he knew how to treat her.
Liu Qinxin felt humiliated. Although she had a hidden card, this youth had walked into her heart step by step and then ran away from the marriage, leaving behind a flaw in her heart.
Zhao Feng slowly put down his hand as Liu Qinxin’s skin turned bright red.
Liu Qinxin calmed herself down as a bitter smile appeared on her lips. She looked deeply at Zhao Feng once more before turning around and leaving.
No matter what the opponent had used, she had lost and she wouldn’t find any excuses.
Looking at her flying away, Zhao Feng felt as if he had lost something. Although this wasn’t the way he had wanted to win, it was the only possible way.
Zhao Feng took a deep breath and said in a solemn tone: “When I have nothing left to worry about one day, I’ll come back and marry you.”
Liu Qinxin, who was midair, froze.
But she didn’t turn around: “I don’t want your pity.”
“That’s on the basis that you’re not married yet.” Zhao Feng said before leaving on his azure sharp swallow.
This bet had lost all meaning. Although Zhao Feng had escaped, he had left this promise behind.
For someone as retarded as him in terms of EQ, this was a miracle.
“Master, is he really the Star in my life or is he my nemesis?”
Liu Qinxin’s eyes were somewhat resentful.
After interacting with Zhao Feng with a long time, she also knew that Zhao Feng was horrible in terms of EQ. Therefore, this promise moved Liu Qinxin.
He had even given this promise under the fact that he had won. If Zhao Feng was emotionless or more shameless, Liu Qinxin could only leave, but destiny changed again once more.
“The person he’s finding is Empress Qin. Hopefully, we won’t be enemies the next time we meet.”
Liu Qinxin’s eyes turned calm once more.
When Zhao Feng had taken out the half of the jade hairbrush, the first tie Liu Qinxin that was sure which branch of the Liu family it was from.
Sitting on the Azure Sharp Swallow, Zhao Feng’s speed became faster and faster as he sped off into the sky.
“I must leave the Flooding Lake Area as soon as possible.”
Zhao Feng felt pressured. Although Liu Qinxin wouldn’t pursue him, it didn’t mean the City Lord wouldn’t.
Zhao Feng’s actions were tarnishing the Flooding Lake Liu family’s reputation and humiliating the City Lord. But using this chance, the City Lord had reached the True Lord Rank.
The little thieving cat appeared on his shoulder and clattered the two coins together.
Zhao Feng was thinking about Liu QInxin’s story. The expert had taken three female disciples. The first disciple chose the Dao of Life, the second the Dao of Charm and Liu Qinxin was the first disciple’s heir.
The little thieving cat waved its paws as if trying to say something.
Zhao Feng could understand what it meant – the Dao of Life first disciple had changed Liu Qinxin’s destiny and it seemed very successful.
Zhao Feng’s appearance caused the Flooding Lake City Lord to break through to the True Lord Rank and he had made a promise to take Liu Qinxin as his wife if the latter was willing.
The little thieving cat threw around the ‘Coins of Destiny’ and nodded its head with a bit of admiration.
“If I’m not wrong, the person that chose the Dao of Charm should be Empress Qin.”
The suspicions in Zhao Feng’s heart was solved and now the only puzzle was the relationship between Empress Qin and First Elder.
A few days later, Zhao Feng opened his God’s Spiritual Eye and confirmed his route to leave the Flooding Lake area.
Because of using the God’s Spiritual Eye, Zhao Feng’s left eye became more tired and more faint ice blue hair appeared.
The rate of the ice blue aura appearing in his left eye became higher and all of this made Zhao Feng’s tiredness increase.
“I can’t hold it back anymore… ”
Zhao Feng gritted his teeth. Every moment now he wanted to sleep, but he knew that he couldn’t do so if he was still around the Flooding Lake area.
Instinct told him that the time wouldn’t be short.
After managing to hold on for another two days, a river appeared in front of him and at this moment Zhao Feng had entered a new territory.
A wave of sleep enveloped Zhao Feng’s consciousness.
He didn’t realise that over half his hair had turned faint blue.
Even his eye had speckles of crystal blue in it.
“This is the limit…. ”
Zhao Feng closed his eyes.
His body fell into the river and was soon covered by the waves.
