"What does that have to do with your plot?" Lin Feng asked skeptically. Even though the old man had told him about the secret of the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting, he still knew nothing.
"I meant in the world of the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting, it will turn into a new and real world. The representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners will go inside and once they're inside, the people of the Yi Clan will close the big gate of the world tightly.
"And then, simple, we help the Yi Clan! Then we can have more allies. That's the agreement I have with the leader of the Yi Clan. The members of the Yi Clan are not aggressive in the way we would understand the word, but they are exuberant. They were strong, powerful, and thoughtful. Only the representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners could become new members of the Yi Clan.
"I couldn't take the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting to all the territories. The only possibility is to attract all the representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners inside the painting, and then choose a good one for the Yi Clan.
"There are many different groups in the Yi Clan. The Long Yi Clan is the most privileged and the noblest one. The leader of the Yi clan you just saw is the leader of the Long Yi Clan.
"Apart from the Long Yi branch, there are the Hu Yi's, the Hei Yi's and the Bai Yi's. They are all ordinary branches. Of course, some of them are extremely rare, like the Long Yi Clan, who are mysterious and secret. Nobody ever sees them. Nobody has ever seen their ancestor. People think they must have about a dozen members. When their children are born, they are Godly Ancestors.
"You're astonished, right? I was also astonished the first time I heard those things. Think about it! This time, you both have to cause trouble and chaos in the Region of the Eight Corners and also go and find the Yi Clan. You have to exchange views with them!
"Regarding whether you'll see the Ancestor of the Yi Clan, I think you'll need to be lucky AND strong because ordinary people don't get to see such ancestors. The ancestor never agrees to see insignificant people.
"This is an opportunity for the Region of the Eight Corners, and for you. I wouldn't have gone and seen Leader Jing Rui personally otherwise, and I wouldn't have bought the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting. I wouldn't have negotiated with the leader of the Yi Clan. I would have done nothing.
"In one year, you can do many things. Breaking through to the Godly Ancestor layer is a possibility. BUT, that's not the kind of event we can rely on, because we don't know when it's going to happen.
"When Kun Dao became the new Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points, do you think he just relied on the disciples and servants he had as the Ancestor of the North? No. He has influence in at least twenty clans. Those clans are all outstanding second-grade clans.
"What I can do for you is limited. You have to stand for yourself. Leader Jing Rui will be on your side, not to mention Ni Huang. You're her son-in-law, so she will definitely support you.
"But it's not enough. Even if you can rely on me and Ni Huang, you also have to work hard.
"So, now, you are in charge of finding a group. Benefit as much as you can from them.
"I know you are the vice leader of the region of Shi Yu already. It's a good thing. Work harder and you will become the Leader of Man Yu soon. You'll have two territories under your control and you will easily rise," said the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points. He hoped Lin Feng would redouble his efforts and conquer the region as quickly as possible. It was the only way for Lin Feng to ever be able to deal with Kun Dao.
The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points didn't know what Lin Feng was thinking at that moment. Lin Feng just smiled wryly. What could he say? Defeating Kun Dao wasn't something he wanted to do, it was something the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points had asked him. Lin Feng had agreed because he needed a new world to play in, a bigger world.
Kun Dao was now his enemy. Kun Dao was a traitor, so Lin Feng felt even more motivated.
The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points used Lin Feng, but Lin Feng was using him back. Of course, their relation couldn't be reduced to mere personal interests. Lin Feng was more like his disciple.
Lin Feng took a deep breath. The old man had talked so much bullshit, he thought. Everything could be summed up in much shorter sentences. The Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting's world must become a real world temporarily, then people must be attracted into it, and then they would be able to cooperate with the Yi clan. The second one was, Work harder, become stronger, and find a suitable group to join to cooperate with.
These two elements were extremely important. They weren't just random things. Lin Feng had to be fully focused to work on those things, especially the first. The crucial moment was about to arrive as the end of the meeting was coming soon.
At the last minute, the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points would be able to start causing chaos. Then Lin Feng would reap benefit from the confusion and do what he had to do.
The Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting. Lin Feng hadn't thought it was such a precious treasure. It could be considered at the same level as the Dazzling Flower and the Three Heavy Waves. Those two things could help people become overlords, and the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting allowed cultivators to cooperate with another group, the Yi Clan.
Lin Feng and the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points exchanged a few more words, then disappeared from the inn and went back to Feng Xun Valley.
The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points was Godly Ancestor Tu Jin. He could travel anywhere he wanted, whenever he wanted.
But for Lin Feng it was different. When he came back into Feng Xun Valley, Gan Wu Dao said, "Xue Yu is qualified. Li Yu is eliminated."
"Ah? Li Yu lost?" Lin Feng was astonished.
Li Chen and Li Dian pulled long faces. They were furious, but they controlled their anger. It was the sad reality. What a cruel world and heartless rules. Nothing could be changed.
But people were still excited. Would Xue Yu rank first in the end? Li Yu had lost, they had no excuse now!
"Let's leave," said Li Chen, standing up. He bowed hand over fist and left.
Lin Feng's expression suddenly changed. If the representatives of Li Yu left, then it would be impossible to cause trouble for everybody and thoroughly mess things up.
Lin Feng came out of the crowd and stopped Li Dian, Li Chen and the others, smiling cruelly. When Li Dian saw Lin Feng's face, he glared at him ferociously. Asura had stolen the Dazzling Flower!
"Asura, you dare provoke us?" snarled Li Dian, glaring at Lin Feng furiously.
Lin Feng smiled and laughed. He didn't pay any attention to Li Dian. Li Dian was even more furious. He wanted to shout out, but his father stopped him and said to Asura icily, "What? You're making fun of us?"
"Yes. I am laughing at you. You lost against Xue Yu. You're a joke!" Lin Feng mocked. He didn't give them face at all. He wouldn't forget that Li Chen had despised him at the beginning.
Now, this was an opportunity, and Lin Feng couldn't miss it.
"What is that supposed to mean? Provocations?" asked Li Chen icily.
"No. No. Not at all. Li Dian and I have had tensions. Shouldn't we solve the issue?" asked Lin Feng nodding and then shaking his head. In the end, he smiled cruelly while staring at Li Dian.
Li Dian ground his teeth, glaring at Asura darkly, his eyes filled with murder. He really wanted to destroy Asura on the spot, drink his blood, and eat his flesh!
"Father, let's not leave!" exclaimed Li Dian, bowing hand over fist and looking at his father Li Chen imploringly.
Li Chen glanced at Lin Feng's cruel smile, and said indifferently, "Li Yu is not leaving for the time being, then. We'll wait until the end."
He turned around and went back to his seat. Nobody said anything else. Of course, at that moment, if anyone had dared say anything, they would have been killed!
"Asura, you're a motherfucking moron! You must be sick of life, asshole! I will destroy you! I will break your neck!" shouted Li Dian ferociously, clenching his fists with brutal force.
They were sharply opposed to each other. A few simple words, now they just had to fight the duel!
Gan Wu Dao coughed. At that moment, it wasn't the right time for personal issues and private duels, so he said, "Please do not disturb the meeting. If you want to challenge each other, do it elsewhere or afterwards, not during the meeting of the Region of the Eight Corners."
"Hmph! Asura, we'll fight after the meeting!"
"Alright, I'll be waiting!"
