Chapter 359: This Opening Belongs to the Yun Family (2)
Qu Lanyi narrowed her eyes and looked at the two people who were talking so happily that they had forgotten her and Murong Yuntian. “Cough!”
Hearing the loud cough, Yun Feng finally realized that she was too busy catching up with Ze Ran to remember others.
“Fengfeng, who is this Ze Ran? Why don’t you introduce us?” Qu Lanyi walked close with an alluring smile. Ze Ran blushed after seeing her, which made her smile even more delightedly.
“He is Ze Ran, my best friend when I was a kid. We grew up together and thought we would marry each other,” said Yun Feng with a smile. Ze Ran put on a shy smile, and looked at Yun Feng with complicated feelings in his eyes. Qu Lanyi raised her eyes. “You have a childhood boyfriend too? How I envy you.”
Yun Feng smiled. Although she and Ze Ran hadn’t seen each other for a long time, Ze Ran was her first friend as a kid. She thought of him even though they hadn’t met for years. It seemed that Ze Ran hadn’t forgotten her either.
“This is Qu Lanyi, my roommate. I think you must know Murong Yuntian,” Yun Feng introduced them briefly, which raised Qu Lanyi’s dissatisfaction. “Roommate? I’m Fengfeng’s bestie…”
Murong Yuntian stood in silence. At this moment, Yun Sheng walked out and was slightly surprised to see the visitors. “Are they your friends?” He pointed at Murong Yuntian and Ze Ran. They were her friends, in a way.
Both Ze Ran and Murong Yuntian stayed for the afternoon. Yun Feng chatted with Ze Ran for a long time, in the company of two third wheels. Yun Feng didn’t mind at all, but Ze Ran felt rather uncomfortable when Qu Lanyi and Murong Yuntian looked at him.
Yun Feng learned from Ze Ran that he was studying in the Karan Empire’s School of God of War with good grades. She could tell that he was in level 8 at this moment. He was a young genius just like Murong Yuntian. No wonder they weren’t strangers to each other.
The Yun family was quite lively that day. Yun Feng somehow found that the people around her were rather weird. She didn’t overthink. She was always inert when it came to romantic relationships. She simply ignored the undercurrents that flowed in front of her eyes. She suddenly remembered that Ze Ran must’ve come to the capital for the international contest.
She asked and learned that the team of warriors had been set up. Both Ze Ran and Murong Yuntian were in it. The team of mages hadn’t been fixed yet. Besides Yun Feng, Qu Lanyi would likely be on the team too. Yun Sheng could take up one of the openings too.
There were requirements on the contestants. The warriors and mages had to be students. The others weren’t qualified to participate in such a contest. The team of mages would probably be picked from the Masang School of Magic.
They waited for a couple of days. Then, the emperor summoned Yun Feng and Qu Lanyi to the royal palace. Yun Feng was slightly stunned, and then remembered that her brother never had a chance to show his strength yet. After all, the individual ranking contest was canceled. Kasa would surely be one of the other three members. She had to make sure that her brother was one of them too!
Mu Xiaojin was too weak to be included in the team. She was slightly regretful, and determined to cultivate more diligently to catch up with Yun Feng and Yun Sheng! Yun Feng smiled and went to the royal palace. It seemed that the two teams would finally meetp each other.
The moment Yun Feng and Qu Lanyi entered the royal palace, someone led the way for them. Both of them seemed rather casual. They both held the same attitude towards the royal family, and didn’t consider it a big deal. Yun Feng didn’t summon Little Fire and Lan Yi. She didn’t have to carry her Magic Beasts all the time, especially not after Little Fire traumatized everybody in the royal palace recently.
The two of them were led to a room. Then, the servant retreated respectfully. Yun Feng opened the door and walked in, only to see a lot of people waiting inside the room. The emperor and Kai were talking in their seats. When the emperor saw Yun Feng and Qu Lanyi, he smiled and said, “It seems that all our contestants are here.”
The others in the room all glanced at them. Qu Lanyi snorted in disdain. After all, she was much stronger than any of the young men and women in the room who called themselves geniuses. She wouldn’t have participated if Yun Feng hadn’t.
Yun Feng examined them too. The weakest of the five members on the warrior team was in level 7, and the strongest, namely Murong Yuntian, was in level 9. On the East Continent, the warriors were generally stronger. Those young geniuses’ levels were quite high.
In the mage team, besides Yun Feng and Qu Lanyi, Kasa was there too. She was in level 6. The other two teammates were both strangers. Yun Feng examined them and frowned. One of them was in level 5 and the other was in level 4! The level 4 girl was standing next to Kasa, and seemed very close to her. Yun Feng realized that there was nepotism everywhere.
“Now that all contestants are here, let me tell you more about the international contest,” said Prince Kai with a smile. Yun Feng, however, raised her brows. “Wait a second, Prince Kai.”
Everybody fixed their eyes on Yun Feng again. Yun Feng chuckled. “Now that we’ve all gathered here, we should introduce ourselves to each other, so that we won’t be strangers. Don’t you agree?”
Prince Kai nodded with a smile, and so did the emperor, who would probably agree with anything Yun Feng said as long as it didn’t harm the royal family’s interests. “Yun Feng is right. Although you’re on two different teams, you’re all representatives of the Karan Empire. It won’t hurt if you get to know each other better.”
