Chapter 564: Soul Searching (1)
Yun Feng calculated the date. Mu Xiaojin had just gotten pregnant. She would be pregnant for ten months. In another year, Mu Xiaojin would be able to give birth. By then, she would have to go back to the East Continent no matter what. How would she miss the grandkid of the Yun family?
The conversation with her family made Yun Feng very happy. After her body recovered, the conversation also ended. Her family told her to be more careful, and Yun Feng accepted with a smile. Ever since she came to the West Continent, the Yun family hadn’t dared to disturb her easily. In the hearts of the Yun family, Yun Feng’s path would be very different.
A month had already passed. It was time for her to claim the bounty. Although she wasn’t interested in the bounty at all, it would be a bit weird if she didn’t receive it.
Qu Lanyi had been silent these days, as if he was thinking about something. He looked at Yun Feng’s neck from time to time subconsciously. Naturally, Qu Lanyi asked Yun Feng where she got the black jade pendant. Yun Feng’s answer made Qu Lanyi very helpless. She said “I don’t know either, I want to know where it came from too”.
He had thought that the black jade pendant belonged to the Yun family, but it didn’t seem to be the case at all. Qu Lanyi frowned and pondered for a long time, but he still couldn’t figure out what was hidden behind the black jade pendant. As long as the black jade pendant was harmless to Yun Feng, Qu Lanyi would be more or less relieved. However, he didn’t know what would happen when the light element energy in the Array of Life ran out.
Nothing happened in the branch hall for a month. It seemed that the impostor was quite convincing. Yun Feng didn’t plan to take Qu Lanyi with her when she claimed the bounty. Little Fire stayed with Qu Lanyi, and so did Meatball. Yaoyao had planned to stay with Yun Feng, but Yun Feng declined her. The branch leader would certainly be upset about Ming Xuan’s death. He would definitely suspect that she was the one who did it. Yaoyao hadn’t grown yet, so it was better for her to stay. If anything happened, she wouldn’t be able to take care of both of them.
She went to the branch hall with Lan Yi. When he heard that Yun Feng was coming, Luo Xu felt like he had been injected with stimulants. She was finally here!
Lord Hao also came out with interest after hearing that. He was quite interested in Yun Feng. When Yun Feng walked into the main hall, she saw that the person sitting on the main seat was a stranger, and the branch hall master was sitting next to him.
The moment Yun Feng walked in, Lord Hao’s heart couldn’t help but skip a beat. What a young face! Like Luo Xu said, she was only in her teens! She reached the Monarch Level at such a young age? What kind of genius was that?
“Yun Feng…” Lord Hao sized Yun Feng up from head to toe and whispered softly. Yun Feng also sized up the man in front of her without batting an eyelid. This man might be stronger than her, so she couldn’t figure him out.
“I’m Yun Feng. And you’re…” Yun Feng replied neither humbly nor arrogantly. She looked straight into the eyes of the person in front of her. Lord Hao chuckled when he saw this. Luo Xu quickly said, “This is Lord Hao, a guardian of the Main Hall. Yun Feng, watch your tone!”
The corners of Yun Feng’s mouth moved slightly. A guardian of the Main Hall? This Lord Hao was from the Main Hall. His strength was a bit higher than that of the Palace Master. The strength of the Main Hall could also be seen. It seemed that the strength of the Hall Master of the Bright Moon Hall had already reached the Lord Level.
Having already made a guess in her mind, Yun Feng smiled slightly. So what if he was a guardian of the Main Hall? Even if he were the Main Hall Master, Yun Feng wouldn’t bow down to her!
“I’m here to collect my reward today. I don’t mean to make small talk,” said Yun Feng casually. Luo Xu’s face was almost green. This man was a guardian of the Main Hall. Who gave you the courage to speak like this?
Lord Hao chuckled again after hearing this. “Young people are always a bit proud. However, since you’re already so accomplished at such a young age, you should be proud.”
Yun Feng stood there with a faint smile and didn’t say anything. Even though the man sitting in the main seat kept smiling, Yun Feng could feel an inexplicable pressure. Lan Yi was silent on the side, but his body was extremely tense and he was ready to fight at any moment.
“Yun Feng, have you ever thought about joining the Bright Moon Hall? With your talent and my recommendation, you can become a guardian of the palace and have the same position as me.” Lord Hao suddenly said with a smile at the corners of his mouth. Luo Xu’s facial features became completely stiff after hearing this. What exactly did Lord Hao mean? He invited Yun Feng to join the Bright Moon Hall!
“Thank you for your kindness, Lord Hao. I’m used to the unrestricted life as an independent cultivator. I dislike rules.” Yun Feng smiled casually and bounced the ball back. Lord Hao chuckled. “In that case, I can only say that it’s a pity. Did you find the man with the bounty?”
Yun Feng nodded. Lord Hao crossed his arms and flicked the back of his hand with his finger. “I don’t think you can claim the bounty for now.”
Yun Feng replied with an “oh” and showed a puzzled look on her face. Lord Hao stared at Yun Feng’s face closely without missing any details, as if he wanted to find some clues from inside.
“Why? Isn’t he the person who was wanted?”
Lord Hao chuckled. “That person’s face is covered with a mask. He’s not the wanted guy.”
Yun Feng’s heart skipped a beat. It was seen through? How could such a mask be seen through? If Lord Hao hadn’t come here, the branch leader probably wouldn’t have been able to detect him at all with his level. This was truly a difficult guy!
“There’s such a mask? I really want to check it out. I didn’t notice anything at all. I’m ashamed to say that.” Yun Feng chuckled with a hint of curiosity in her eyes. She didn’t forget that the tricky old fox was staring at her. If she didn’t act like it, this old fox would sense that something was wrong.
Lord Hao chuckled softly again and said in a deep voice, “Even though this mask is very lifelike, it doesn’t work in front of me. I learned from Luo Xu that you encountered Yu Xiu. This possibility is one in a thousand.”
“Is that so? You’ll have to ask the guardian Ming Xuan of the branch hall. She was lucky to be able to lead us to Yu Xiu.” There was coldness on Yun Feng’s face. Luo Xu was speechless. How could he not know what Ming Xuan was planning? Yun Feng was quite right..
