Chapter 697: People from the Empire
At dusk, rays of sunlight were passing through the thick and dense forest of bamboo trees.
At that moment, someone was sitting cross-legged on the ground. Lin Feng had his eyes closed and he was practicing cultivation.
Behind Lin Feng, not so far away was a beautiful woman. She was sitting on a bamboo rocking-chair and was swinging slowly. She looked pure and holy with a resplendent smile on her face. Meng Qing’s neck was filled with spring moon jade stones, Lin Feng had given them to her. Even though she didn’t need so many, she was very happy to have them.
Lin Feng was releasing a terrifying cold Qi which had enveloped his body. His incredibly strong cosmos-burning skill was burning around him. Surprisingly, a strong ice Qi was still enveloping his body.
Lin Feng moved his hands and a terrifying fire started burning and merging with the ice. Just like Lin Feng and Meng Qing had merged together when they had made love. Then, the ice slowly melted in that fire.
After a long time, Lin Feng released a terrifying energy and absorbed all the fire. His Qi had become stronger.
Lin Feng opened his eyes and stood up. He turned around to look at Meng Qing and asked, “What’s going on?”
After having made love with Meng Qing, an ice-pearl had appeared in his body. That ice-perl contained a terrifying ice energy. So he used it to practice cultivation, he could use it to transform his pure Qi. It had increased his speed in condensing pure Qi. When the pure Qi couldn’t become stronger than that the ice pearl also become weaker. Lin Feng’s body was very intriguing.
Meng Qing smiled but did explain anything. Lin Feng didn’t ask about it again, he just looked at her and said, “Let’s go for a walk.”
“Alright, you have to see Xin Ye.” said Meng Qing. “When you weren’t here, Xin Ye came a few times to have fun with us. She misses you alot and it seems she lost some weight too.”
Lin Feng smiled, he hadn’t thought that Meng Qing would be so nice. She had seen Xin Ye a few times and they had become close friends. If they were both good friends Lin Feng would be happy.
At the same time in another corner of the Imperial City, there was a huge group of people.
The guards of the Imperial City of Xue Yue were stupefied. They were just looking at those silhouettes riding terrifying, ferocious wild beasts. They all looked so scary that people shivered, some had even stumbled and almost fell when they saw those things.
“Very strong Xuan level beasts.” thought some people when they saw those beasts getting closer and closer. Everybody in the Imperial City was raising their heads and looking at that group of people. “What’s going on?” thought the crowd shivering. There were ten terrifying Xuan level beasts blotting out the sky and covering up the earth.
“We need to inform someone.” thought the shaking crowd.
“No need.” said someone else. Immediately after, a strong wind blew over them that nearly knocked them all down. Those black silhouettes in the sky were becoming more and more distinct. They didn’t need to inform anyone because everyone could see them already.
A few people in black chang paos suddenly rose up in the air and encircled the city.
“We are the Imperial Dragon Guards, who are you and why did you come to Xue Yue?” asked a person, that voice was incredible. The crowd was looking at that person who was talking. The Imperial Dragon Guards were cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer, they already considered as extremely strong cultivators in Xue Yue. They had become a mysterious sphere of influence in the country, but at that moment the Imperial Dragon Guards were feeling inferior. Those people who had come were much stronger than them.
They were extremely nervous.
“Don’t worry, we won’t be here for a long time. I am Ruo Lan Shan from Dragon Mountain, the emperor of Dragon Mountain ordered me to come and grant someone the title of ruler of Xue Yue.” said Ruo Lan Shan slowly. Behind Ruo Lan Shan a group of beautiful women took out some baskets, in which there were tulip petals. They then threw them around and the petals flew off in the wind, accompanying Ruo Lan Shan’s words.
That group of extremely strong cultivators were from Dragon Mountain. They had been sent by the emperor of Dragon Mountain.
“Ruler of Xue Yue…” The crowd at the bottom was astonished, ruler…? Someone was going to become ruler of Xue Yue…?
“Can I ask you who is going to become ruler of Xue Yue?” asked the Imperial Dragon Guard. His chest was bouncing back and forth, those people from Dragon Mountain hadn’t come to cause troubles! Instead, they had come to grant somebody the title of Ruler of Xue Yue, how incredible! The ruler of Xue Yue would then have the same power as the king of Xue Yue.
“A genius from Xue Yue who dazzled at the Great Competition of Xue Yu and had finished first. It is an honor for our empire, therefore, he is going to become the ruler of Xue Yue.” said Ruo Lan Shan smiling. The crowd was stunned, a genius from Xue Yue had finished first at the Great Competition of Xue Yu?!
They were all stunned. They had already thought that being the strongest person of Xue Yue and being able to participate at the Great Competition of Xue Yu was exceptional…they had even thought that finishing in the top ten was incredible and an honor for their country… But finishing first was absolutely amazing, they couldn’t believe it.
Surprisingly, someone from Xue Yue had finished first at the competition…
“Who? The crown prince Duan Wu Dao?” asked some people in the crowd. Their heads were spinning, there were thirteen countries in Xue Yue and Xue Yue was such a tiny little country… Under the jurisdiction of an empire… Surprisingly, someone from their country had won and was the champion of the competition, how was that possible? They couldn’t believe it.
But the ambassador from Dragon Mountain only smiled and kept flying amongst the tulip petals in the sky. That thing was real, it was a miracle for Xue Yue.
The news spread in the city very quickly, everybody suddenly knew about it.
A genius from Xue Yue was the champion of the Great Competition of Xue Yu… The ambassador from Dragon Mountain had even come to grant that champion the title of ruler of Xue Yue.
“We’re going to inform the Imperial City family, please wait a moment.” said two of the Imperial Dragon Guards, they were very surprised. They glanced at each other and then moved back towards the Imperial Palace. If someone from Xue Yue had won the Great Competition of Xue Yu, it would have to be Duan Wu Dao the crown prince. They were, of course not going to prevent those people from coming into the city anymore.
The crown prince was definitely going to become the Ruler of Xue Yue.
Being the champion of the Great Competition of Xue Yu was really an incredible thing.
The tulip petals kept flying in the air. Ruo Lan Shan and the others slowed down and moved towards the Imperial Palace. They weren’t moving so fast as if they had wanted to show to everybody that they were there. They wanted everybody to know that Lin Feng was going to become the ruler of Xue Yue.
People were following and looking at the crowd in the sky. How could they miss such an incredible thing? It was a miracle in the history of Xue Yue. Duan Wu Dao had won the Great Competition of Xue Yu and was going to become the ruler of Xue Yue.
At that moment, they didn’t know that the new ruler of Xue Yue wasn’t going to be Duan Wu Dao and instead, it was Lin Feng, who was in the Lovesickness Forest with his parents.
Lin Feng also didn’t know that those people from Dragon Mountain had come.
