Chapter 831 – Meeting
The elites of some super-forces arrived one after another to the entrance of the scorched dragon-shaped crater.
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng were a rare combination since they were only two people.
“It’s those two thieves! They even dared to plunder the imperials! What do they think of the dignity of the imperials!?” the Thirteenth Prince in his purple-golden battle robes said angrily.
At this point in time, all the forces of the Great Gan Imperials were gathered here. The Eight, Ninth, and Thirteenth Princes were all here. On top of that, there was also Luo Zun and the wrinkled elder, who were Domain-level Kings.
“Brother Eighth Prince and Brother Ninth Prince, we can’t let those two thieves take any cut of the treasures in the Ancient God’s Mysterious Palace. How about we combine our forces and kill them before we go in?” The Thirteenth Prince’s face was full of hatred as he suggested from the side.
His group had been plundered by the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo. This made the Thirteenth Prince extremely angry, but what made him helpless was that the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo had successfully escaped after attacking them several times. From the looks of it, the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo seemed to be doing very good.
The Eighth and Ninth Princes looked at each other and hesitated when they heard the Thirteenth Prince’s suggestion.
“It’s him….” The Ninth Prince’s eyes squinted as he looked at the younger one of the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo. Back when he was running away from the Blue Serpent King Wei Jing, this youth had used the Blue Serpent King’s natural domain to strengthen his body, and then the duo managed to escape.
If it weren’t for his guidance, the Ninth Prince might not have survived. The Ninth Prince had complex emotions toward Zhao Feng, who seemed to be covered in mist. He still couldn’t see through this youth even now.
The Eighth Prince and Luo Zun had wary expressions. Zhao Feng’s appearance made them feel disgusted and helpless. Just a while ago, they had worked together with the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo, but instead of taking any advantage from them, they were the ones that were tricked.
“Cough! Younger brother Thirteenth Prince, now isn’t the best time to deal with the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo. We need to plan it thoroughly.” The Eighth Prince gave a light cough. Although the imperials were really strong at the moment, there were still powerful forces around, such as the Sky Suspension Palace and the Sky Sword Pavilion.
“That’s right! The most important thing right now is the Ancient God’s Mysterious Palace.” The Ninth Prince agreed.
The Eighth and Ninth Princes both seemed to be wary of the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo. If even the imperials were wary, other forces like the Jiang Family, Grand Duke Yuan’s Palace, the Ji Family, and company were even more cautious and wary.
“You…!” The Thirteenth Prince felt that it was very weird. Dealing with the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo was to protect the dignity of the imperials, so why did these two older brothers seem to be evading it?
“Thirteenth Prince, don’t be rash! We need to wait for a better time to deal with that wicked duo.” The wrinkled elder looked at everyone’s expressions, and it wasn’t hard for him to guess the reason. It was obvious that the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo was infamous for being troublesome. It could be said that they were a hard bone to bite.
This demonic duo not plundering people was already a good thing, and they were thinking about how to provoke them?
Exclamations sounded from in front of the dragon-shaped crater as a male wearing a t-shirt flew through the air and descended onto the ground.
“Brother Xin, are you willing to work with us? The Six Star Tower is willing to give up 40% of everything we get….”
“Xin Wuheng! You’re a subordinate of the imperials, quickly join us.”
The eyes of some leaders lit up as they invited him. One three-star power was even willing to offer up 60% of everything they got.
The welcoming that Xin Wuheng got exceeded everyone’s expectation. It was the complete opposite of the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo, who others tried to avoid as much as possible.
Xin Wuheng and the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo acted in completely opposite ways.
“Thank you for all your good will, but I haven’t thought of which side to join yet.” Xin Wuheng rejected all the offers calmly.
The leaders of some forces had regretful expressions, but they couldn’t force him.
“That kid has the charm of a professional. His future can’t be measured….” The white-bearded Little Sword Saint from the Sky Sword Pavilion inspected Xin Wuheng with admiration.
However, Xin Wuheng also rejected the Sky Sword Pavilion’s offer without any hesitation.
“Brother Zhao,” Xin Wuheng greeted the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo that everyone tried to avoid with a complex expression. The younger one, to be precise. After all, they came from the same hometown and were once on par with each other.
All the other forces looked over. What kind of history did this purple-haired youth have? Even Xin Wuheng knew him and greeted him. Furthermore, there was a complex and solemn expression on Xin Wuheng’s face.
“Could it be that Zhao Feng of the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo is someone on the same level as Xin Wuheng?” The groups from the Jiang, Ji, and Cao Families guessed.
“He’s indeed stronger and more mysterious than I imagined.” Shock appeared on Ji Lan’s face. She was the one who had been counterattacked by the God’s Spiritual Eye.
No matter what was said, the wickedness and mysteriousness of the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo was imprinted into their minds.
Even the Thirteenth Prince started to think; Looks like the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo is stronger than I imagined. No wonder the two older imperial brothers didn’t want to…
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
At this instant, another group of elites arrived near the entrance to the dragon-shaped crater. In the very front of the group was a girl in purple. She was extremely pure, and she attracted everyone’s attention instantly.
“It’s the Duanmu Family!”
“Zhao Yufei! Even though her surname isn’t Duanmu, she’s a member of the Duanmu Family. Apparently, the Grand Elder of the Duanmu Family took her in as a step-daughter. She’s also said to have the bloodline of the Spiritual Race….”
Some people started to discuss. For most of these elites, this was the first time they were seeing this daughter of Heaven.
“Zhao Yufei… Bloodline of the Spiritual Race! Master said that she’ll be a powerful foe of mine in the future. Her bloodline means that she is destined to fly across the Nine Heavens.” This was the first time Xuanyuan Wen truly inspected someone.
The female in their vision was gorgeous and pure. A glow came from her snow-white skin, as if she was a noble and elegant goddess of jade and ice. Even Xuanyuan Wen, who had seen many beauties in four-star powers, was stunned by her appearance.
“Sister Yufei!” The Thirteenth Prince’s eyes lit up, and he revealed a joyful look as he went to welcome her.
Many of the forces present knew about the news between the Thirteen Prince and Zhao Yufei. It was very likely that these two would become a couple in the future. This wasn’t just the Sacred Emperor’s intention, there was also a big momentum pushing this.
Looking at the goddess of his dreams approaching, the Thirteenth Prince tried to control himself, but he couldn’t stop the admiration in his eyes. In the depths of his heart, he already thought of this perfect girl as his fiancée.
However, an unimaginable scene happened. The elegant girl in purple acted as if she hadn’t seen the Thirteenth Prince; her pair of eyes only locked on to one person.
“What’s going on?”
The Duanmu Family, the imperials, and all the other families felt that something was wrong. The direction that Zhao Yufei was staring in was where the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo was standing.
“The demonic duo again!”
“Could it be that the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo offended Zhao Yufei as well…?”
Many of the experts present clicked their tongues.
“Yufei, don’t worry. I will definitely help you punish those two thieves!” the Thirteenth Prince said confidently with a bright smile.
In order to get the heart of the goddess of his dreams, he was willing to kill the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo no matter the price. If he insisted on attacking, the Eighth and Ninth Princes had to do something too, so the Thirteenth Prince immediately gathered his forces and was about to surround the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo.
“Stop!” A shout and a strong surge of Spiritual Race bloodline aura stopped the Thirteenth Prince. The Heaven Earth Yuan Qi nearby instantly turned into a storm, and all the experts present felt their bloodline and True Yuan shake.
“Sister Yufei, you…” The Thirteenth Prince was dumbfounded; he didn’t understand why the goddess he was trying to impress suddenly became angry.
At this moment, Zhao Yufei’s eyes became watery as she turned into a streak of purple and sped toward the younger purple-haired youth.
“Yufei!” The elder in green robes and the others from the Duanmu Family were caught off guard. This was the first time they had seen such strong emotions come from this daughter of Heaven.
“Brother Feng… is it really you?”
Zhao Yufei’s eyes were filled with water, and she had nothing else in her heart apart from the wicked purple-haired youth in front of her. The familiar hair and familiar gaze made her more certain.
“What… what’s going on!?”
The Eighth Prince, the Ninth Prince, Luo Zun, and company from the imperials were dazed. The emotions on Zhao Yufei’s face meant something – the relationship between her and Zhao Feng was probably very close.
“Both of their names are Zhao, could it be…?” The Eighth Prince and Luo Zun couldn’t help but look at each other, and a guess formed in everyone’s hearts. They all thought that the relationship between the two was “brother and sister.”
“Yufei… it’s me.” Zhao Feng’s tone was deep.
Seeing his childhood friend and the girl he sort of liked, he felt complex emotions and didn’t know how to face her. When he was younger, his emotions were wooden; he only felt good will toward her at the beginning. Only after that did he start to feel like a brother toward her. However, emotions poured past the initial barrier and formed over time, like a bottle of wine. The smell radiating from it made one unable to resist it. There was no such thing as eternal promises or love to the bone, only the continuous erosion of time.
“Brother Feng, why didn’t you tell me…?”
A purple figure leapt into Zhao Feng. Maybe it was because Zhao Yufei had confirmed that it was Zhao Feng due to his soul, she had forgotten that this body wasn’t Zhao Feng’s original body.
Zhao Feng’s hand touched something wet, and he felt speechless as he hugged the beauty.
“Yufei…!” The Thirteenth Prince shook, and his entire heart turned cold. He instinctively felt that the relationship between Zhao Feng and Zhao Yufei wasn’t just that of brother and sister.
The Great Gan Imperials, the big families, and the super prodigies were all dumbfounded and dazed. Those from the Duanmu Family were also stunned; this elegant daughter of Heaven who had a noble bloodline was hugging a youth who was one of the infamous Purple-Haired Demonic Duo.
