When the old man heard Lin Feng, he remained silent, what could he say in this situation?
It was exactly as Lin Feng described it, and now the old man’s life was in Lin Feng’s hands.
“Is there any possibility of a negotiation?” Asked the old man while looking at Lin Feng.
“No, there isn’t.” Replied Lin Feng without any hesitation while shaking his head.
“When you were in the position of power, you humiliated me and played with me as if I was nothing. You wanted to take my life and humiliate Meng Qing. Now that I am the one with power, do you really think that I will be merciful and spare your life?” When the crowd heard Lin Feng, they sighed. Indeed, everybody had seen how the old man had treated Lin Feng. In the illusion, he had prevented Lin Feng from meeting Meng Qing, Lin Feng wasn’t able to enter the room where Meng Qing and She Qiong were fighting.
Besides, after the illusion stopped, Lin Feng and She Qiong started fighting. When She Qiong seemed to have the advantage, the old man hadn’t intervened, When Chu Zhan Peng joined the battle and attacked Lin Feng by surprise, the old man didn’t act. The old man only took action when he saw that She Qiong was about to die. He was playing with Lin Feng the entire time, because he was supporting She Qiong. The situation had now drastically changed and at that moment, Lin Feng had the power, the old man’s life was in his hands, so would he let the old man live? Impossible!
The old man sighed, he felt regret from the bottom of his heart but there was no cure for regret.
“I hate my own foolish actions, I thought about the gains from interfering with a rising genius, unfortunately, I was just fooling myself.” Sighed the old man. He then slowly closed his eyes and said: “Let me die in peace.”
“Alright, I will give you that.” Lin Feng slightly nodded and raised his hand, a black flame started to burn, it released threads of deadly energy into the air.
Lin Feng’s hand shook and the grim fire landed by the old man’s heart. In a flash, the deadly energy spread across the defenceless old man’s chest. The old man’s facial muscles twitched and immediately after, his head fell limply towards his chest as he stopped moving. However, the grim fire continued burning his body into nothingness.
A cultivator of the fifth Xuan Qi layer was dead! And on top of that, he was sent from the Imperial City.
The crowd sighed, just how many strong cultivators had died today? Ling Tian, She Qiong, Chu Zhan Peng, Chu Qing and the old man, these were only the few that were killed by Lin Feng.
The fire kept burning across the old man’s body as the colourful ribbons returned to their owners. At that moment, a ring which was diffusing pallid lights appeared in the air in front of Lin Feng which surprised him.
Lin Feng stretched his arm out and grabbed the ring.
The old man had broken through to the fifth Xuan Qi layer and was from the Imperial City, there were probably lots of treasures and wealth that had accumulated over a long time in that ring.
After that, Lin Feng turned around and looked at the mysterious woman. He looked perplexed, he still didn’t understand why she was helping him, and why did he have the same feeling of closeness whenever he looked at her?
“Do we know each other?” Asked Lin Feng again while looking at the mysterious woman. Lin Feng’s intuition was telling him that there was a connection between them.
When the mysterious woman heard Lin Feng, she started to tremble.
She could walk through the sky, look down upon the earth, she could raise her hand and kill thousands, but she was unable to remain calm in front of Lin Feng. Lin Feng’s indifferent and emotionless voice when speaking with her made her bite down on her lips, she wanted to shout the truth from the top of her lungs, but she didn’t know what to say.
Could she tell Lin Feng that she was his mother even though she hadn’t seen him throughout the entire eighteen years of his life?
Lin Feng was waiting for her answer but she remained silent.
The people who understood their story were sighing, the woman was also sighing, everything was about to change.
“She’s Lin Hai’s wife and you ask her if you know each other?” A shout suddenly interrupted. A few people sighed, nothing could change what happened in the past, that was the truth of the matter. That sentence made Lin Feng’s heart start to race.
Lin Hai’s wife!!!
A sharp and cruel light filled Lin Feng’s eyes. The one who had just spoken was Yue Qing Shan, the head of the Yue Clan.
“What the hell is going on?!” Lin Feng’s thoughts and feeling were completely chaotic. A moment ago, he had guessed that this woman was the owner of the Lovesick Forest and last time, Duan Xin Ye had told him that the person was a beautiful woman from the Yue Clan. She was the most dazzling female cultivator of Xue Yue, but she eventually cut ties with the Yue Clan. In other words, it was also possible that she was related to Yue Qing Shan.
When Yue Meng He saw Lin Feng’s expression, she nodded slowly in agreement. She put her hand on her bamboo hat and threw it away. The bamboo hat flew away on the wind and the mysterious woman’s face appeared.
She looked pure, delicate and soft. She had arched eyebrows and an oval face, her beautiful eyes were filled with tears and her face had turned red. She still looked tender and soft, but there was something more, she looked sad.
“Meng He, you haven’t changed at all.” Yue Qing Shan’s silhouette flickered and he rose into the air. While looking at that woman’s face, he couldn’t help but sigh.
Yue Meng He looked at Yue Qing Shan, she was extremely puzzled. If Yue Qing Shan had stood by her and agreed for her to be with Lin Hai, none of this would have happened.
“You have changed, your hair is now white.” Said Yue Meng He in a low voice. It was impossible to see her thoughts from her facial expression.
“Indeed, I am old now. I might die soon, but even now, you still refuse to call me father.” Said Yue Qing Shan who had mixed feelings. He loved his daughter and he was able to see her again, but they were no better than strangers.
Many people didn’t know that Yue Meng He was his daughter, when they heard that, their hearts felt uneasy.
Yue Qing Shan was saying that Yue Meng He refused to call him father, so she must be his daughter!
Yue Meng He, eighteen years ago, used to be the most outstanding female cultivator in the country.
Many people found themselves excited when they recalled the story about the events eighteen years ago, so that’s it, the incredible female genius who had amazed Xue Yue eighteen years ago was his daughter.
Besides, it seemed like Lin Feng was Yue Meng He’s son… So wasn’t he also Yue Qing Shan’s grandson!?
He had the heavenly dragon spirit, the spirit of the Yue Clan, everything was becoming clearer. Lin Feng was also starting to understand everything.
Lin Feng had the blood spirit of the Yue Clan and was the head of the Yue Clan’s grandson.
“Call you father?” Yue Meng He frowned and then said coldly: “Do you think that you have acted as a father?”
Yue Meng He’s voice was filled with resentment, she was blaming Yue Qing Shan for everything that happened, which left him speechless.
“Everything I’ve done, if it wasn’t for you then it was for the Yue Clan.” Replied Yue Qing Shan. He looked troubled after hearing Yue Meng He’s words, but he replied with a clear conscience.
“So you still think that what you did was right for the Yue Clan… And right by me?” Yue Meng He was looking at him like he was pathetic. She smiled coldly and said: “So what do you want, why have you come over to me?”
When Yue Qing Shan heard her words, he was surprised. He always thought that he had made the correct choice, but Yue Meng He, from beginning to the end, never changed her view. They were both alike, neither would admit if they had been wrong. When there was a large disagreement between a father and his daughter, it was difficult to solve it.
Lin Feng was standing between them, unable to calm down. His heart was drumming in his ears and his thoughts were beyond chaotic.
He was trying to remember Duan Xin Ye’s story about what happened eighteen years ago with the four geniuses, but he never paid it much heed.
Amongst those four geniuses, three of them had fallen in love with the fourth, the most outstanding female cultivator in the country. After that, Zhuge Wu Qing gave up his pursuit and the beautiful woman had chosen the man who had no family or influence. In the end, the one from the Imperial Clan was angry at Yue Meng He and her lover, so he sealed her lover who wasn’t famous and forced him to leave the Imperial City.
The Imperial Clan, the sealed doors!
Lin Feng’s heart was racing. He suddenly remembered that his father had a black mark on his body, it was a sealed door.
The outstanding yet unknown cultivator who had amazed the country eighteen years previously. The one left with a sealed door on his body, was his father, Lin Hai! All the pieces were starting to come together! Lin Feng would have never thought that the story that he had heard by chance, was hiding such a big secret, it was the story of his parents!
