Nobody was sure about what had happened after Asura had killed all those people, but the atmosphere was extremely calm, and eerily silent. People felt afraid, and had a bad feeling. Lin Feng and Qing Huang Tian were the only ones left at the top of the mountain. Even Zong Hu had left.
"Husband, you really want to bring those people back to life? If if you do, they will think you killed them; why take such a risk?" asked Qing Huang Tian. She didn't understand Lin Feng and what he wanted to achieve.
She knew that Lin Feng wouldn't gain anything by doing this.
Lin Feng glanced at her and smiled. She had been following him for two months already. During those days, she had done all sorts of things for him, and had never gotten angry at him. She had just devoted her entire life to him. She reminded Lin Feng of Liu Fei.
Liu Fei was very similar. She just followed him around and did things for him selflessly. They even stood in the shadows to help him, like parents.
They had different personalities, though. Liu Fei really did that because she loved him unconditionally. Qing Huang Tian was a strong cultivator, a Spiritual Godly Ancestor, so she knew what she was doing. She wasn't being naive.
"Sister Qing, don't be angry for me. No matter what, they need to return to life," Lin Feng smiled, explaining everything patiently. She was worth his time.
"I still don't understand," said Qing Huang Tian, shaking her head. She shook her head so quickly she started feeling dizzy.
"No matter what I do, the rumor that I killed the representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners has already spread around. As long as Cheng Shan is alive, it's a fact, but I will do my best. I will bring them back to life and no matter what they think, if they believe me or not, I will tell them the truth. At the least, it'll make them think, and who knows? It might work!"
"Husband, what you mean is that if you explain the truth to them, only then will you have a clear conscience?"
"Indeed! I didn't kill them, after all. How could I let anyone think I am guilty? On the contrary, I have to find the assassin, and I need to solve the issue. It's not a small issue. It's about face, dignity, and reputation. You understand, Sister Qing?"
"Yes, I understand, husband. Since you're determined, I will support you. I will not let you down!" Qing Huang Tian agreed. She looked incredibly beautiful, yet also cold and determined. Her kindness made Lin Feng's heart melt.
She had already fallen deeply in love with him, but he couldn't give her much love. He couldn't accept her love, either. Therefore, Lin Feng felt more and more confused.
"Alright, Sister Qing, let's go and pick up Zong Hu and the others. The representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners must be there already," Lin Feng said, changing the topic. He didn't want to make Qing Huang Tian believe he had feelings for her.
Qing Huang Tian was pure, but not stupid. She knew Lin Feng was changing the topic on purpose, so she forced a smile, her rainbow-colored dress fluttering. She flashed away, and landed at the foot of the mountain.
Lin Feng sighed and walked down. Zong Hu had already brought a few representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners to the foot of the mountain. The disciples were scared of Asura. They had seen the massacres with their own eyes.
But Zong Hu had promised them that the Asura who was about to arrive was the real one, and that the one who had killed Song Chou Jiu and the others wasn't really Asura, it was an impersonator whose goal was to harm Asura.
Zong Hu cared about Song Chou Jiu. If he said that, it meant they could trust him, but they were still worried when they saw Asura.
"Zong Hu, did you tell them the truth?"
"Yes, they believe half of the story," Zong Hu replied hastily.
Lin Feng nodded. Exactly what he expected. Even though Zong Hu was lucky and had even been there, people still didn't trust him.
"Brothers, I don't want to talk too much. I just want to tell you one thing: give me some time and you'll understand everything. You'll understand who killed the representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners! Alright?" Lin Feng said, frowning and staring at the oversized disciples. They were all disciples from Li Yu, but they hadn't participated in the Competition.
"Alright, we will not get involved. But we need to know what happens in the end, alright?" replied the leader of the group, staring at Asura. He seemed surprised and scared, but he found the courage to answer Asura.
Lin Feng burst into laughter. Was he that scary? Was he really a terrifying demon?
Lin Feng had forgotten how terrifying he was when he had killed Gan Wu Dao and the two others. He had been cruel and bloodthirsty. He had also forgotten how he had reacted when Cheng Shan had killed the representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners.
Those disciples feared Asura, and if it weren't for Zong Hu, they wouldn't have come!
"Don't worry, I will tell you everything," Lin Feng promised.
"Alright, thank you, Master Asura," said the few people happily. They bowed hand over fist and then slowly walked backwards to give space to everybody else.
Soon, Leader Jing Rui came back with hundreds of disciples; more people hadn't participated in the Competition, they had just come to watch.
"Asura? He is Asura?"
"I've seen him before. When he kills people, he's like an insane and evil demon. He's terrifying!" declared a middle-aged man warily.
"Eh, Leader Jing Rui? I, I want to leave," stammered a skinny man. He was trembling from head to toe. He didn't even want to get revenge anymore.
"Me too, Master."
"Master, please let us go. We don't want to die."
"Master Jing Rui, Master Asura, please don't kill me! I'm still a virgin!"
All the huge men suddenly looked like crying chicks. Initially, Lin Feng wanted to tell them the truth, but when he saw them, he understood it was useless.
He wanted to tell them everything in detail, but now, he didn't feel like it anymore. It didn't matter. Even if those disciples caused trouble, what could they do against him? Nothing. They were scared to death when they saw him. The only thing they could do was insult him behind his back.
"Leader Jing Rui, let them leave. No need to explain anything to such people!" Lin Feng said, frowning impatiently. He clutched the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes picture scroll, which grew to ten meters in size and enveloped the landscape.
"Go out. Don't die in this world," Lin Feng sighed. He raised his left hand and a gate appeared in front of everybody.
The hole grew bigger and bigger. Everybody left as quickly as they could. Outside was Feng Xun Valley in Gan Yu.
Very quickly, everybody departed. Apart from Lin Feng and a few other people, there was nobody left in the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes world.
"Haha, Lin Feng, wait until I destroy everything! Haha!" shouted a voice suddenly. Suddenly, a strong wind started blowing in the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes world. A black silhouette appeared and faced Lin Feng. Lin Feng hadn't though such a thing would happen so he used his most powerful attack immediately, "Two Heavy Waves, Sky Burning Fire!"
"Haha! Lin Feng! Wait until I take your life, you pitiful dog!" shouted the voice, bursting into a ferocious laughter. Lin Feng's attack had destroyed Cheng Shan's punch before, but it didn't injure him this time. He was fine, and looked full of vim and vigor. Lin Feng grimaced at the sight.
"This time, you're in danger," Leader Jing Rui sighed and scratching his head. He really wanted to steal Cheng Shan's memories and show them to everybody, showing them that the fake Cheng Shan had plotted against Asura, but he decided not to do it in the end.
It wasn't the right time. Lin Feng had to face some terrifying enemies first. Otherwise, it would be a waste.
Lin Feng stared at the hole for a very long time. He didn't know that thirty minutes after Cheng Shan left, the whole Region of the Eight Corners was completely shaken. Astonishing news spread around.
Asura had killed the representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners; those from Shi Yu, Xue Yu, Gan Yu, and the others. He had even killed Gan Wu Dao, Miss Shi Yu, Xue Can Yun from Xue Yu, and Gan Wu Dao from Gan Yu!
The most important part was that he had killed all the participants of the Competition! He had even killed people who cared about him, such as Song Chou Jiu and the others!
The whole Region of the Eight Corners was shaken. Everybody felt desperate and furious.
In Shi Yu, the old leader couldn't sleep. His eyes were bloodshot. He wasn't crooked anymore, and looked ice cold.
"Initially, I wanted to give Asura an opportunity. Now, it seems he doesn't deserve it. Asura, I'm warning you, I'm going to destroy you and avenge my daughter's death!" shouted the leader furiously. All the disciples and demonic beasts of Shi Yu were terrified.
Something cracked, and some shouted, "Find Asura and kill him!"
