After all these years of development, the highest level of member the Lin family ever had was just a level-8 warrior. They wouldn’t dare to think about having a summoner, which the Yun family once had. The Lin family didn’t even have a mage. And the reason why the Lin family was so afraid of the Mei family was because the strength of the Mei family was much more powerful than that of the Lin family!
The current leader of the Mei family, Mei Ran, was a level-6 warrior. The second echelon of the Mei family, which was the generation of Mei Bing’s father, had several level-5 warriors. Even though the Yun family had declined right now, Yun Jing was also a level-5 warrior while Yun Sheng was a mage! As for the Lin family, the current leader of the Lin family, Lin Quan, was just a level-4 warrior! Among everyone in the Lin family, only two of them were at level 5. Even the Lin family was ashamed of such strength.
If the Lin family didn’t have such a large amount of money for them to hire some level-5 masters, they would have been gone a long time ago. So, in terms of strength, the Lin family was a river that had almost dried up. None of them were geniuses and they didn’t have practicing talent at all. This made the members of the Lin family a bit frustrated and anxious.
However, when Lin Meng was born, the members of the Lin family were shocked and their eyes brightened! The genius the Lin family had been waiting for so many years finally showed up. Lin Meng was all the hope of the Lin family!
The Lin family spent countless money and put so much energy into Lin Meng. If Lin Meng wanted the stars in the sky, the Lin family would take them down for him. He could do whatever he wanted. Ever since Lin Meng was little, he had been protected and doted on by everyone with their hearts. Countless expensive herbs were melted into his blood. Even the Mei family didn’t want to spend money on buying snow ginseng, but the Lin family bought them like buying cabbage and they threw all of them into Lin Meng’s stomach.
In fact, Lin Meng’s aptitude was only a little higher than normal kids. He was thousands of miles away from the definition of a genius. If the Lin family didn’t spend money to buy medicines for him like crazy, Lin Meng would probably take ten years more to reach the peak of level 3.
Mei Bing was a genius. That arrogant Murong Ran was also a genius. Yun Feng was a genius above the geniuses. And Lin Meng would never be able to be one of them his entire life.
Meanwhile, in the main hall of the Lin family, a few middle-aged men were sitting with a pretty serious look. They were all the senior members of the Lin family of this generation. Their frowning eyebrows showed that the Lin family’s recent financial situation was indeed in a bit of a crisis.
“Brother, Xiao Meng will be taking the graduation exam after a few days. Shouldn’t you…” The person who was talking was Lin Meng’s father, Lin Sen. He was the second younger brother of the leader of the Lin family, Lin Quan.
“Brother! You know the situation in Chunfeng Town. We’ve already suffered a huge loss. There are other miscellaneous expenses as well. How can we take more money out?” The one talking furiously was Lin Quan’s third younger brother, Lin Miao.
Lin Sen opened his mouth and didn’t know what to say. The amount of money the Lin family spent on Lin Meng was enough to buy an entire city. He was indeed embarrassed to ask for more again, especially during this time. And yet, it was a crucial moment for Xiao Meng right now. It was about that only spot!
Lin Quan, who was sitting in the main seat, remained silent. His hair was a bit white and there were more wrinkles on his face because of the things that happened recently, making him look a bit older.
“Brother, how much do you need?” After a while, Lin Quan rubbed his forehead. He felt like they had gone too far to turn back right now. They spent so much money on Lin Meng just for this spot. If they couldn’t catch up right now and let the Mei family get the spot, the huge amount of money they spent would be wasted.
Lin Sen looked a bit strange. After pondering for a moment, he said with a soft voice, “Five hundred thousand…”
“What! Five hundred thousand!” Lin Miao widened his eyes angrily. Lin Quan also glanced at Lin Sen. After seeing this, Lin Sen immediately said, “Mei Bing of the Mei family has already reached level 4 and Xiao Meng is just at the peak of level 3. Even though they’re similar in strength, they’re also one level apart after all! I’m going to use the five hundred thousand to buy medicines, so that he can secure the spot!”
Lin Quan’s pupils shrank abruptly and his face darkened. “What did you say? Mei Bing has already reached level 4?”
Lin Sen nodded and Lin Miao also looked shocked. The Lin family had been through too much lately. The two of them were so busy that they were in bad shape and they only knew about Mei Bing’s situation right now.
Lin Quan sat there and pondered for a few seconds, then said, “Go to buy the herbs. Xiao Meng must get this spot.”
After hearing this, Lin Sen was thrilled. Lin Miao pursed his lips and didn’t say anything else. After all, Lin Meng was everyone’s hope. Since they had already put so much money into him, they didn’t have to hesitate to spend more.
“Right, brother, I heard that the little girl of the Yun family is alive.” Lin Miao said as he frowned. The members of the Yun family were indeed tough. That girl had already stopped breathing and she came back to life?!
Lin Quan’s eyes glittered. He was also a bit shocked that Yun Feng was alive. Lin Sen then said slowly and calmly next to him, “That girl is just lucky she didn’t die, but Xiao Meng didn’t leave any trouble for the future either. Her Qi meridians were damaged.”
After hearing this, the eyebrows of Lin Quan and Lin Miao couldn’t help but soften. They even snickered in their minds. Although they weren’t quite satisfied that she didn’t die, it was also pretty nice that she had become a useless person. They had given the Yun family a slap, loud and clear!
“Hm, a useless person won’t be able to do anything.” Lin Quan said casually. Lin Miao and Lin Sen also chuckled. The Lin family was determined to get the spot of the Martial Arts Institute!
The warm sun rose from the east, covering this vast continent. The first beam of sunlight also shone on Chunfeng Town from the east slowly, gradually plating this peaceful town with a layer of gold. It emitted golden light like an ancient, mysterious artifact, looking extremely dazzling.
In the mansion of the Yun family in Chunfeng Town, a pair of black eyes slowly opened. The vast and deep black color was like the boundless night. A glint of red light flashed inside abruptly. It was as fast as a shooting star and it disappeared immediately.
Yun Feng breathed out gently and slowly withdrew the mental strength she used to constantly communicate with the elements all night. She stretched her body slightly and heard a few crackling sounds from her bones.
She came down from her bed and took a breath deeply. Yun Feng looked at the beam of golden light that shone through the window and stared at the sky outside that gradually brightened. Phew, it was a new day again.
She slightly lifted her hand and a ball of red elemental force appeared in her palm, like an unusually lively, leaping flame. Looking closely, the red elemental force had a few black strands inside. The space around the elemental force became hot all of a sudden and was even a bit distorted, even though it wasn’t that obvious.
