"What? You know where Lin Feng is?"
Qian Jin Cai Yue was in a room, panting. She had forgotten people couldn't come into her room, but at that moment, Zong Hu, Hu Shan and the others had walked in.
"Master Song told us to tell you that he knew where Lin Feng was and he's going to look for him and bring him back," said Zong Hu. Song Chou Jiu had told him what to say word by word.
Qian Jin Cai Yue suddenly looked touched. She took a deep breath and left her room. She walked towards the old broken boulder in the mountains behind Man Yu. She looked over the valley and at the clouds under her feet before coming back to her room.
"Lin Feng is going to do something incredible. Don't try and look for him. He'll come back," said Zong Hu. Zong Hu and the others got ready to leave her room.
But Qian Jin Cai Yue stopped them and said, "How did you find him? And where?"
Qian Jin Cai Yue felt so happy, but she still managed to calm down. She had to remain clear-headed.
"We haven't actually found him. He's just been with us the whole time," Zong Hu smiled. Master Song had also anticipated that Qian Jin Cai Yue would ask that question, so he had prepared answers.
Qian Jin Cai Yue smiled icily and said, "I'm going to cut your tongue if you continue talking shit! Are you afraid? Always been on our side... Yeah right, who is it then?"
"Asura! Brother Asura! Apart from Brother Asura, who else could it be?!" proclaimed Zong Hu, smiling mockingly. He waved at Hu Shan and the others and they left the room. Qian Jin Cai Yue was left alone in her dark room.
The curtains were closed. It smelled like incense. Qian Jin Cai Yue had mixed feelings; she was lost in thought, and forgot to close the door.
"Lin Feng, you lied to me... How painful," whispered Qian Jin Cai Yue, forcing a smile after a long time. Her voice was a little bit hoarse. She should have understood a long time ago. Asura and Godly Ancestor Jie Long weren't enemies, why would they want to kill him? Godly Ancestor Zhan Ling wasn't his enemy either, so why had he killed him?
Initially, Lin Feng had always been on her side, but she didn't know it. She even made fun of him all the time. How stupid! She was stupid! She had missed Lin Feng and made Asura's life a sheer hell at the same time, even though they were the same person!
"Mother, you knew already, didn't you?..."
The news that Lin Feng was coming to Shi Yu spread around. In the end, Ancestor Shi also heard about it. By the time he did, Lin Feng was already in the sky of Shi Yu. Ancestor Shi sent Shi Yu and Shi Jue Ling out to welcome him.
Lin Feng wasn't Asura anymore, and he wasn't the vice leader of the region anymore. This time, he came to Shi Yu with the intention of taking control of it. Ancestor Shi knew what Lin Feng's visit implied.
Ten minutes later, outside of Ancestor Shi's room, a few people appeared. Apart from Lin Feng, there were three Holy Godly Ancestors. And there were also an ordinary Godly Ancestor and a Spiritual Godly Ancestor, respectively Song Chou Jiu and Qing Huang Tian.
"Please, everyone!" said Ancestor Shi. He was bent over again, and seemed much older. His cultivation level had also decreased again. He now had the strength of the Spiritual Godly Ancestor layer, but nothing had changed, he was pretending again. In reality, he was still a Holy Godly Ancestor.
Of course, the most important people were Miss Eight and the two other Holy Godly Ancestors. Without them, Ancestor Shi would have welcomed Lin Feng personally.
"Please go ahead, Master," said Miss Eight. Even though the two of them had fought before, nobody had won. They were neither enemies nor friends. They just respected each other.
Lin Feng and the others came in. Qing Huang Tian was with Lin Feng at the front. Song Chou Jiu was behind them.
Shi Yu greeted them with tea.
"Thank you. You're a good girl," said Miss Eight. She was jealous of Shi Yu's looks. Even though Shi Yu wasn't devastatingly beautiful, it was still better than being as hideous and extremely ugly as Miss Eight.
"Thank you very much," said Qing Huang Tian, taking a cup of tea. She looked bewitching when she was holding a cup of tea; beautiful, noble, and pure.
Shi Yu looked at Qing Huang Tian with mixed feelings. She knew that woman wasn't Ni Huang's daughter, but she was still devastatingly beautiful. Shi Yu feel ashamed of being inferior to her. No wonder Lin Feng wasn't interested in her at all. Even if he weren't with Ni Huang's daughter, he would have never agreed to be with a woman like Shi Yu.
It was the first time Shi Yu felt so embarrassed, awkward, and depressed. She forced a smile and stopped looking at Qing Huang Tian. She walked to Water and poured some tea for him, then for Life and Song Chou Jiu.
"Should I call you Lin Feng or Asura?" asked Ancestor Shi, narrowing his eyes. When Shi Yu poured some tea for him, Ancestor Shi spoke indifferently, but there was something hidden in his question. Some Qi of the Holy Godly Ancestor layer surrounded Lin Feng's head and it felt like his head was about to explode.
Lin Feng had been put under pressure by too many Holy Godly Ancestors, so he was exhausted and his body felt numb. He wasn't afraid of Ancestor Shi's Qi, though. He just smiled calmly and replied, "As you wish, whatever you prefer is fine."
"Haha! Good little boy! Let's get straight to the point. Why did you travel all the way from Man Yu to Shi Yu?" Ancestor Shi smiled. Lin Feng hadn't changed, therefore, Ancestor Shi wasn't worried.
"I want to rule over the Region of the Eight Corners! Master, please support me," Lin Feng announced straightforwardly. He looked at Ancestor Shi and waited for him to reply.
Ancestor Shi looked extremely strange as he studied Lin Feng silently. Even though he knew Lin Feng had some great ideas, he hadn't thought Lin Feng would say he wanted to rule over the Region of the Eight Corners. Hundreds of thousands of years had passed since someone had done such a thing!
Lin Feng was extremely greedy. What did he think? That he could rule over the region, just relying on the three Holy Godly Ancestors here? Even though they were Holy Godly Ancestors and were strong, it was far from enough!
To become the ultimate ruler of the Region of the Eight Corners, one had to be like Ni Huang. Lin Feng was with Ni Huang's daughter, why didn't he ask her? Would she support him? Nobody dared not give face to Ni Huang. If Lin Feng became the ultimate ruler of the Region of the Eight Corners, it would come down to slapping Ni Huang in the face.
Ni Huang couldn't allow such a thing to happen.
Besides, Lin Feng's identity had been revealed. From what he knew, Lin Feng had killed Godly Ancestor Jie Long from the World Dragon Clan, who was also the leader of World Dragon University, and Godly Ancestor Zhan Ling, the leader of Spiritual Warriors University, even though they were important people. He had humiliated their respective groups by doing that.
After Lin Feng had killed them, the two groups hadn't found the murderer and were still angry. They didn't intend to spare Lin Feng's life. If Lin Feng became the ultimate ruler of the Region of the Eight Corners, what would happen if the Region of the Eight Corners was in danger? He wouldn't be able to protect it!
In the end, the Region of the Eight Corners would suffer from Lin Feng's mistakes. Even if Ancestor Shi agreed to cooperate with and support Lin Feng, what about Gan Yu? Xue Yu? Li Yu? And the all the other territories?
Lin Feng couldn't become the ultimate ruler of the Region of the Eight Corners just like that, from one day to another. He was dreaming. Completely delusional!
Lin Feng didn't think too much, but Ancestor Shi did because he was responsible for the lives of all the people of Shi Yu, and he also wanted to create a suitable environment for his daughter to grow up in.
"Lin Feng, it's a huge risk. I'm afraid I can't accept," said Ancestor Shi, shaking his head in the end.
Lin Feng frowned. The old man called him Lin Feng? It meant he didn't consider him the person he knew, Asura!
"Master, I know why you're worried. It's a big risk. But you, can you protect Shi Yu forever?
"Even worse, will Shi Yu ever be strong enough to protect Shi Yu? Not to mention the three elders. They're not even friends, and dislike each other. Haven't you thought of all those issues?
"If you agree, I will make the three elders stop arguing. Shi Yu will be in a nice environment. Also, I won't get involved in the affairs of Shi Yu. Shi Yu will be responsible for that, she'll be the leader. What I want is Shi Yu to follow me and support me in my project.
"I will not officially announce an alliance with Shi Yu for the safety of your people and territory. When I am strong enough to protect the whole Region of the Eight Corners, I will announce it officially, so you will also benefit from that. Am I asking for too much? I don't think so, Master," Lin Feng proposed, playing to Ancestor Shi's emotions.
Ancestor Shi remained silent for a long time. He was old. He had to lower his level to the Spiritual Godly Ancestor layer to gain some additional years. When he used his real strength, his lifespan was burned up. That was why he hated the fake Cheng Shan more than anything.
He had to think about what Lin Feng had just told him.
Ancestor Shi remained silent. Lin Feng smiled confidently and drank tea. Miss Eight and the others looked at Ancestor Shi worriedly.
Ancestor Shi looked at Shi Yu. She was pale and looked rather young at the moment. Even though she was an ordinary Godly Ancestor, she was still far away from breaking through to the Spiritual Godly Ancestor layer.
Her father wouldn't live much longer. One year, maybe a few more months then that.
"I accept, Asura. I hope you'll ensure everybody's safety!"
"I will, Master. Don't worry."
"No, I want you and little Yu to be sworn siblings. Then you'll be her brother and she'll be your sister. Otherwise, I can't agree."
"Father, you..!" blurted out Shi Yu, paling even more. Lin Feng as a brother? How could she agree?
"Shut up! Men are talking! Who asked a female for her opinion?" shouted Ancestor Shi angrily. It was the first time he had shouted at his daughter, but he had no choice.
Lin Feng remained silent for a long time. In the end, he finally smiled and nodded slowly, "Alright, if it makes you feel better, I agree to become sworn siblings with Shi Yu!"
