"Brother, did you kill him?" asked Zong Hu, excited.
But Lin Feng smiled wryly and disappointed everybody, shaking his head. "Someone saved him."
"Oh no! Fuck! If Cheng Shan doesn't die, you'll be in permanent danger. What can we do?" asked Song Chou Jiu. He was angry at himself. If he were as strong as Lin Feng, he would be able to help him.
"Don't worry. Next time I see him, I will definitely kill him," Lin Feng said to cheer Song Chou Jiu and the others up. He also tried to cheer himself up, hoping Cheng Shan wouldn't turn into a second Di Shu.
"Hehe, brother, should I call you Brother Asura or Brother Lin Feng?" asked Zong Hu, smiling awkwardly. Cheng Shan had revealed Lin Feng's real identity, so Zong Hu's question was perfectly legitimate.
Lin Feng was extremely worried about that. Now he had to face people. It would bring the fights against the World Dragon Clan and the Spiritual Warriors Clan to an earlier date. Initially, Lin Feng had intended to wait for a year after officially announcing he was the successor of the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points.
But since Cheng Shan had suddenly revealed his identity, the plan was definitely going to change. The pressure from the Region of the Eight Corners, the World Dragon Clan, and Kun Dao would be unbearable.
"It doesn't matter. Call me whatever you wish. What I'm worried about right now are the World Dragon Clan and the Spiritual Warriors Clan," Lin Feng said, looking out of the window worriedly.
Zong Hu stopped laughing and stepped aside. Song Chou Jiu walked forwards and patted Lin Feng's shoulder affectionately, then smiled sincerely. "It's alright. Everything is flexible in life. It doesn't matter who you are, Asura or Lin Feng; in any case, you're my brother."
"Brother Song, you don't need to..."
"Haha! Why not! We are brothers, your problems are my problems! Lin Feng or Asura, it's the same! I admire you as a person. Asura killed Gan Wu Dao and Xue Can Yun, I admire him!
"Lin Feng even managed to make the weakest university win the Meeting of the Universities, Leader Jing Rui acknowledged you, some ordinary Godly Ancestors encircled you, and you still survived! Then you killed Godly Ancestor Zhan Ling and Godly Ancestor Jie Long in Jing City.
"How audacious! You are my brother and you are great, you're the only one who's ever dared do such things in the Region of the Eight Corners. You're awesome!" Song Chou Jiu exclaimed. What he said wasn't exaggerated at all!
Lin Feng looked at him, touched by his sincerity. The man really considered him a brother. But Song Chou Jiu was also right. Since Lin Feng was audacious, why not be even more audacious? Why not go even further?
When you're strong enough, enemies don't dare attack you anymore. That was a universal rule!
"Thank you very much, Brother Song. I know what you mean," Lin Feng acknowledged. What Song Chou Jiu had told him had marked him. He might think a bit longer and not do something which would surprise everybody.
"What do you intend to do now?" Song Chou Jiu asked excitedly. He knew Lin Feng wasn't ordinary, so he would probably go on more adventures. Song Chou Jiu wanted to go with him. Lin Feng probably didn't want to stay in Man Yu, or even remain the leader of Man Yu very long.
If he could follow Lin Feng for a while, he would succeed. Lin Feng was talented. Song Chou Jiu would watch and learn. He had seen the Yi Clan already, and everybody knew that back in the days, the Yi Clan used to be as strong as the World Dragon Clan.
Now the Yi Clan was supporting Lin Feng, and three Holy Godly Ancestors were following Lin Feng to help him. Holy Godly Ancestors! When thinking about that, Song Chou Jiu almost fainted. He would never break through to the Holy Godly Ancestor layer in this life, and just the day before, he had seen three together!
In addition to Miss Eight, there was the leader of Shi Yu; everybody could ignore him, but not Song Chou Jiu. Lin Feng and Shi Yu were connected, and Ancestor Shi would become one of Lin Feng's greatest allies in the future.
Then there was Qian Jin Cai Yue, whose mother was Master Ni Huang. She was an Earthly Godly Ancestor, one of the four great overlords. Nobody would try to kill Lin Feng knowing that.
Without realizing it, Lin Feng had more and more people who could help him. Now, he could clean up the Region of the Eight Corners a little if he wanted to!
Song Chou Jiu remained silent, and Lin Feng remained silent too. Song Chou Jiu eventually asked, "Brother, no matter what you do, we, the people of Man Yu, will do our best to help you. Even if we're weak, it's better than nothing."
"Brother Song, I'm worried that if I tell you, you'll think I'm crazy," Lin Feng smiled wryly. If he told his real plan, everybody would laugh.
"Haha, brother! Come on! Tell me! We won't laugh!" Hu Shan laughed.
"Come on!" shouted Song Chou Jiu angrily.
"I want to become the ultimate ruler of the Region of the Eight Corners!" Lin Feng said helplessly. The atmosphere turned completely silent in the great hall. One could even hear everybody's breathing.
Lin Feng smiled wryly. He knew they would be astonished, but nobody laughed, so that was a good thing already.
Lin Feng got ready to leave the great hall, but after one step, Song Chou Jiu said solemnly, "Brother, I can't do much, but at least I'd like to give you Man Yu!"
"Brother Song, you..." Lin Feng was dumbstruck. Song Chou Jiu looked quite serious. He wasn't joking.
"Brother Lin Feng, I knew you'd want to become the leader of the Region of the Eight Corners since the Competition of the Region of the Eight Corners. I guessed you were interested in the whole region and not just one territory a long time ago.
"It's normal! When you're strong enough, why not want more? Don't worry, brother. Go ahead and do your best. Man Yu is yours! It is not the most glorious land, but it is a terrifying one!" Song Chou Jiu declared. Lin Feng frowned at that declaration.
"Man Yu has an ancient grave. Inside is the strongest young genius of five hundred thousand years ago, Ao Ce. He was about to become an Earthly Godly Ancestor, but four Holy Godly Ancestors joined hands outside and killed him. Man Yu was never able to recover after that.
"He was from abroad. He wasn't from Man Yu, but he became the leader of Man Yu. He was a splendid and glorious hero. Brother Lin Feng, if you want to check the grave out, I can bring you there anytime.
"Not many people can know about it. Apart from me, only Lang Zhe and Zhu Ban Chang know about the grave. Zhu Ban Chang is not interested in becoming the only leader of Man Yu, and he went back to the Zhu Clan in Gan Yu. You scared Lang Zhe to death, so he's not coming out anymore. He's always in his room," Song Chou Jiu explained in detail. Lin Feng was free to make any decision.
"Ao Ce, about to become an Earthly Godly Ancestor? It meant he was at the top of the the Holy Godly Ancestor layer?" whispered Lin Feng. That name, Ao Ce, reminded him of the Dragon Clan. But dragons were pure, noble, morally elevated, and proud. Why would a dragon come to Man Yu in the Region of the Eight Corners?
"We'll talk about it when I come back, Brother Song. Now, I need to go to Shi Yu. Are you coming with me, or are you staying in Man Yu?"
After half an hour, Lin Feng decided to forget about the grave for the time being. If Ao Ce was so strong, then the grave was probably difficult to understand. He would need at least an entire week to understand it, so he had more important things to do first.
The situation in the Region of the Eight Corners was unstable. He couldn't be absent for a week. He had to get everything done in one sustained effort. He had to take control of Man Yu, Shi Yu, Ye Yu, and Jiao Yu!
As for Xue Yu, Li Yu and Gan Yu, he couldn't do much because they were difficult to take over. Gan Yu had at least one Holy Godly Ancestor, Li Yu might have one, and Xue Yu had two Holy Godly Ancestors, Xue Wu Tian and Xue Wu Tian!
He couldn't act without thinking. Excluding those three territories, the others were easy to take over.
"I'll come with you. Hu Shan and Ti Yuan can stay here and protect Man Yu," said Song Chou Jiu. He didn't want to miss an opportunity to travel with Lin Feng. He wanted to do glorious things!
"Alright, let's go then," Lin Feng nodded and smiled. He turned around and walked towards the exit of the great hall. Qing Huang Tian was waiting outside. When Lin Feng saw her, he grabbed her cold little hand and they rose up in the air and flashed away.
Song Chou Jiu told his servants a few things and then he disappeared after them.
The news that Lin Feng was going to Shi Yu spread around like wildfire, but Hu Shan and the others didn't tell anyone about it. In a corner of the Region of the Eight Corners, there was something mysterious going on.
As Lin Feng moved towards Shi Yu, all the elders of the other territories starting moving around.
Outside the Region of the Eight Corners, some people in the World Dragon Clan heard that Lin Feng might be hiding in the Region of the Eight Corners.
When they heard that, the ordinary Godly Ancestors who had encircled Lin Feng back then, as well as two Spiritual Godly Ancestors and four other ordinary Godly Ancestors, decided to look for Lin Feng in the Region of the Eight Corners.
What they didn't know yet was that they were just going to walk into the lion's den!
