Even though this was just the first step, even though it wasn’t a big deal, Yun Jing’s excitement couldn’t be concealed anymore. Once he returned to the Yun family, he had entered the ancestral hall and still hadn’t come out until now.
Finally, the door moved. Yun Jing appeared in front of the brother and sister expressionlessly or even solemnly. Seeing that Yun Sheng and Yun Feng had been waiting outside, Yun Jing showed a pleased look. His son and daughter were all grown up and were both responsible!
“Feng, come in.”
Yun Feng nodded. Yun Sheng also let go of Yun Feng’s hand and gave his sister a gaze of encouragement. Yun Feng smiled as she entered the ancestral hall. Her sullen father then shut the door. Yun Feng knelt on her knees on the ground without even thinking about it, quickly and neatly!
Yun Jing also knelt next to Yun Feng. The two of them looked at the forebears of the Yun family enshrined in the ancestral hall. The painting of the ancestor was hanging right ahead of them. That uninhibited smile was arrogant and confident!
“Yun Feng, are you ready to bear the expectations of the Yun family from the last few centuries?”
Yun Feng’s black eyes immediately moved as she clenched her fists quietly on the sides of her body. “Yes!”
“Yun Feng, are you ready to bear the responsibility of the Yun family from the last few centuries?”
“Yun Feng, are you ready to give your all for the Yun family until the day you die, as a member of the Yun family?”
Yun Feng clenched her fists tight as she gazed at the row of ancestors with her black eyes. Those were generations of members of the Yun family up there, people who carried the hope and responsibilities of the Yun family in the last few centuries! And she would continue to bear the burden. No matter how heavy it was and how tired she was, she was willing to do so. This was her root, her home!
A “yes” sounded in the ancestral hall and kept resounding around. Yun Jing slowly closed his eyes, then opened them again slowly. They were full of arrogance and pride! Yun Feng knelt there and only felt a huge hand holding her shoulder gently. When she looked up, she saw those eyes of her poker-faced father were filled with warmth.
“Feng, thank you.”
The burdens of the Yun family were all weighed on Yun Feng’s skinny shoulders. How would Yun Jing not be heartbroken? After all, Yun Feng was a girl. Although there was no strict distinction between men and women in this world where the strong were respected, women were always on the weaker side.
Yun Feng smiled. This smile completely wiped away Yun Jing’s worries and concerns. “Father, the Yun family will stand on an even higher place. Believe me!”
Yun Jing froze for a second, then gave a rare smile. He caressed Yun Feng’s little head with his big hand. “I believe you.”
Yun Jing got up and Yun Feng also got up together. Suddenly, the ancestor’s voice echoed in Yun Feng’s mind. “Kid, have you noticed…”
What the ancestor said made Yun Feng a bit confused. Notice what? Did the ancestor see something? “What have you found?”
Yun Feng subconsciously looked at the painting of her ancestor hanging in the center of the ancestral hall. He had distinct short hair and an uninhibited smile. Yun Feng surprisingly had some similarities to that confident look.
“Have you noticed that I’m quite handsome?”
Yun Feng froze and looked a bit embarrassed. She gazed at the painting of the ancestor a few more times. To be honest, her ancestor was indeed pretty handsome, but if he blew his own horn…
“You’re right…” Yun Feng replied in her mind. The ancestor burst into laughter very happily. “I told you I look better with short hair. Those old guys unanimously opposed it back then. Luckily, I insisted…”
Listening to the ancestor’s chatter, Yun Feng shook her head speechlessly. Old urchin was a suitable phrase for describing her ancestor. He was this old already, at least a few hundred years old… and he still cared about things like his hairstyle. Ah… Her somewhat pressured mood just now had been eased by what the ancestor said. When she followed her poker-faced father out of the ancestral hall, Yun Feng saw an old man showing up in front of her and felt a little startled.
Yun Jing was also startled. The old man who suddenly came to visit chuckled and cupped his hand in the other in front of Yun Jing, feeling a bit sorry. “Master Yun, you wouldn’t mind my sudden visit, would you?”
Yun Jing also cupped his hand in the other. He looked at the old man in front of him and glanced at Yun Feng. “I certainly wouldn’t mind having you here, Mr. Principal. Please come in.”
The old man shook his head as his eyes gazed at Yun Feng. He then asked with a smile, “Kid, it’s time for you to go back to the Martial Arts Institute. The matters with the Lin family are all done.”
Yun Sheng couldn’t help but feel a little anxious. His precious sister was a summoner. Why should she return to the Martial Arts Institute? The development of warriors was pretty good indeed, but it couldn’t compete with that of summoners at all!
Yun Jing glanced at Yun Sheng to signal him to calm down. The two of them both remained silent. It was better for Yun Feng to deal with this herself. After all, the principal of the Martial Arts Institute was here for Yun Feng.
Yun Feng smiled gently after hearing that. At this moment, the ancestor also mumbled with reluctance, “Go back to the Martial Arts Institute? Kid, don’t let him shake up your stance. How can those stupid muscular people compare to summoners?”
Yun Feng knew clearly that most people on the East Continent followed the path of warrior, but that was because of the system. If possible, everyone would be dreaming of becoming a summoner! Practicing to become a warrior when they could be a summoner? People’s brains weren’t kicked by a donkey. Besides, Yun Feng’s Qi meridians were truly damaged. It was useless for her to go on the path of a warrior.
“Thank you for thinking about me, sir. Please forgive me for being rude, but I’m not going back to the Martial Arts Institute.”
“Not going back to the Martial Arts Institute?” The principal repeated this in shock. When he knew what Yun Feng meant, he couldn’t help but feel slightly anxious. They were waiting for Yun Feng to gain face for the Martial Arts Institute in Chunfeng Town this year. How could this kid not come back? She didn’t even want that only spot?
“Yun Feng, that spot of the Martial Arts Institute is for you. Are you giving up the chance to be admitted to the School of the God of War?” The tone of the Principal couldn’t help but raise slightly, even with a sense of pressure.
Yun Feng raised the corners of her mouth. The School of the God of War? Only ghosts wanted to study there. If she really wanted to study, she would choose a magic school. After all, summoners were also mages. It made sense for her to practice magic as well. The School of the God of War? Just forget about it.
“Mr. Principal, doesn’t the Martial Arts Institute still have Mei Bing? His strength was also exceptional.”
