Feiyun was walking in front with Su Xue behind him. The two of them have left that special space.
The two didn’t say a word from start to finish.
In the end, Su Xue had to ask: “Feng Feiyun, where are you taking me?”
Feiyun didn’t answer and continued forward!
“Whoosh!” Her body slightly moved as she appeared in front of Feng Feiyun. Her sword had left its scabbard and flashed a cold glint just like her eyes. Its tip was pointed at Feiyun’s neck.
They were at the entrance of the Yin Gou Ward. One of Feiyun’s feet had already crossed the door.
Feng Feiyun acted as if he didn’t see her sword and leisurely said: “You can go now.”
Su Xue slightly trembled before raising her voice: “You captured me and now you’re letting me go? What the hell do you want?”
“Nothing, get out of my way. You can go wherever you want now.” His body flashed and appeared behind her as he headed towards the street.
Su Xue spoke: “You… This is clearly a trap, don’t think about leaving me behind.” Her delicate brows, sculpted nose, and sharp chin... all of these features made her quite unique.
Her black dress was tightly wrapped around her curves. Even her plump breasts were pressed down by a silk cloth, but they were still slightly protruding upward.
Her unreasonably long legs on her already tall figure quickly followed right behind Feng Feiyun.
In her eyes, Feiyun was cunning to the extreme. Even Lu Liwei who was full of wisdom had suffered in his hands. Therefore, she felt quite strange about being let go like this and assumed that he was scheming against her.
He stopped to turn around and smiled: “You are quite bold, daring to follow me. Have you forgotten who I am?”
“Hmph, Feng Feiyun, do you think I am Lu Liwei and Bai Ruxue? I dare you to come within three steps of me. Even if I am not your opponent, I’m still strong enough to take the both of us down together.” Su Xue spoke with a chilling aura. Frost began to form on the ground.
With a grin on his face, he took two steps closer towards her.
“Swoosh!” A sword ray flew towards him and cut off some of his hair. Her sword was indeed frightening. It wasn’t beautiful at all, only swift and cruel.
He stopped again and smiled: “Su Yun asked me to help you. Are you satisfied after knowing the truth now? It’s time for you to go.”
“Feiyun, you think you can trick me? Who doesn’t know about the relationship between you and Nangong Hongyan? Su Yun wants to kill Hongyan yet you are telling me that you’re his friend?” Su Xue withdrew her sword and embraced it.
Feiyun asked: “Hmm, you really don’t believe me?”
She coldly replied: “Not even the slightest bit.”
“Then there’s nothing I can do.” He continued forward while Su Xue continued to follow him while maintaining the distance of three steps.
The manager of the Yin Gou Ward rushed forward in the night while shouting: “Young Noble Feng, Young Noble Feng, wait a minute, wait a minute…”
This mysterious man from the prestigious clan cheerfully smiled and came closer.
Feiyun stopped again and asked: “Manager Dongfang, what’s the matter?”
Dongfang Yiye smiled: “Not much, not much, it’s just that a question has been on my mind this whole time and I wanted to ask you.”
Feiyun quipped: “There’s actually something you don’t know?”
The manager asked: “What is your plan for the future?”
Su Xue, standing at a distance, gave the two of them a dismissive glance and turned away.
Asking for someone else’s plan wasn’t polite at all, but Dongfang Yiye still did it. It made the situation seem a bit special.
Feiyun contemplated for a bit before asking: “What do you mean?”
Yiye heartily laughed and suggested: “This isn’t the place to talk, care to follow me?”
‘Just what is this old fox trying to do?’ Feiyun was curious and followed after him. They quickly arrived at the best winehouse in all of Radiance. This was another property of the Yin Gou Clan. Feiyun had been here before, so he was quite familiar with the place.
“Within five years, this world will change completely. The rising heroes will herald a new golden age. With this being the case, surely you must have some plans for your future?” Yiye was also familiar with this place and took Feiyun into an elegant room.
Two maids dressed in white brought a stove and wine jars into the room and placed them in the center.
This stove was cast from yellow mud, likewise with the jars. However, the wine inside these jars had been stored for more than six hundred years. They initially filled up the entire jar but have unknowingly evaporated, leaving behind only half of the original contents.
The two pretty maids fanned the fire to boil the wine using common firewood.
“Manager Yiye, are you treating me? This wine smells very good.” Feiyun took a deep breath and could smell its sweet taste, a bit similar to honey with a hint of alcohol.
Yiye ginned: “It is indeed a very good wine that has been fermented by the red river. Only the Yin Gou Ward can buy it, so I especially brought it here. Young Noble Feng, you are a grand historical genius with limitless potential. In the next five years, you will certainly soar to the sky. Have you really not thought about your future plans?”
Feiyun looked from a window and noticed a girl hugging her sword while standing by a pillar at the entrance to guard it. She looked up to see Feiyun before snorting and averting her gaze.
She still hasn’t left!
Feiyun smiled and casually spoke: “So you are also a wine lover. I’m sure you have stored a fine selection of wine.”
Yiye’s expression was unchanged: “Of course, of course, I have a lot of good wine left. If Young Noble Feng visits the dragon lake one day, you will find that the good wine there is as abundant as the water in an ocean. The Wanxiang Pagoda is too neutral, it’s not a good place for a hero to stay for long. When the age of chaos arrives, it will become an empty shell. If you don’t come up with a backup plan now, I’m afraid you will be at a disadvantage when the time comes.”
Feiyun watched the stove fire and avoided giving a direct answer: “Manager Yiye, your status at the Yin Gou Clan must be quite high.”
Yiye rubbed his beard and gently shook his head: “Only an errand boy.”
Feiyun sarcastically asked: “How could you be an errand boy with your vast knowledge?”
Yiye suddenly stood up and paced around the room before answering: “Young Noble Feng, you are also an intelligent person, how could you not read the current situation? Please, answer me directly this time.”
Feiyun thought for a moment before replying: “Very well. Since you have stated it explicitly, I won’t talk in circles either. Although the Wanxiang Pagoda is the number one sacred ground, it is only a place for heroes to gather. Once the chaos truly arrives and the cultivation world’s balance is broken, these heroes will leave the pagoda and return to their homes. This so-called number one sacred ground will be left empty.”
Yiye nodded in agreement.
Feiyun continued: “The fight between the heretical schools and the pagoda this time is only an invisible test between the great powers. After all, the highest powers in the cultivation world haven’t directly fought in a long time, so no one understands their enemies’ true strength. They want to use this opportunity to gauge each other in preparation for the future.”
Yiye nodded again and praised: “The tower lords at the pagoda are all top characters from these great powers. The duel between the pagoda and the heretical schools this time has actually been allowed by the upper echelons from both sides. Less than five people of the younger generation can see through this.”
Feiyun commented: “If this is really the case, then in the near future, the situation will escalate and maybe the older generation will join the fray.”
Yiye only laughed and didn’t answer. Feiyun smiled back.
The two maids had finished heating the wine and poured it into small cups.
The two of them raised their cups and happily drank. After Yiye finished his first, his expression turned serious: “Young Noble Feng, you still haven’t answer me yet!”
“About what?” Feiyun put down his cup and smiled.
“What is your plan after this test for the pagoda’s list?” Yiye was afraid that Feiyun would continue to beat around the bush, so he went straight to the point: “The Divine King might be respected and, in the Jin Dynasty, he is only below one but above all. However, he hasn’t done anything in the court for several hundred years now, many of his trusted aids have left him. His practical influence isn’t that strong.”
Feiyun has been dodging this issue, but since Yiye has been pushing him continuously, he directly answered: “I have never thought about succeeding the Divine King’s position, I only wish to continue on the path to becoming an immortal.”
Yiye shook his head: “You can’t go against the great momentum. You are a drop of water in the river. Even if you don’t wish to flow forward, the current will push you ahead.”
Having said that, he suddenly chortled and said: “Young Noble Feng, in this current situation at the Jin Dynasty, who do you think is ahead right now?”
Feiyun’s eyes slightly shifted before answering: “The Jin Dynasty has been established for more than six thousand years. It has accumulated countless resources and has waves of heroes in the royal clans, its power is beyond words. Surely the royal family must count as one of the leading powers?”
“The imperial Long Clan is indeed a blessed power. Every generation, a grand historical genius would appear among them. Yes, they are quite terrifying and could be considered one of the leaders in the present age, but not the very top.” Yiye smiled.
Feiyun was slightly surprised!
The two of them continued to drink wine while talking about the world. Many of their comments could be considered treason. However, Yiye had already erected a barrier in this room, so their words couldn’t be leaked.
