"What? You mean Lin Feng killed eight Great Godly Ancestors, including two Spiritual Godly Ancestors?"
Leader Xue Wu Tian was astonished. He couldn't believe what Xue Can Yun had just told him, his first time. But Xue Can Yun wasn't the only one who had told him. Gan Wu Chang and Li Ju had told him the same thing, so it couldn't be fake news.
It meant that Huang Yu and Ye Yu might become Lin Feng's puppets. With Man Yu and Shi Yu, Lin Feng would control four great territories, half of the Region of the Eight Corners!
Shi Yu had a Holy Godly Ancestor. Lin Feng was an ordinary Godly Ancestor who had the strength of a Spiritual Godly Ancestor, and he also had the support of three unknown Holy Godly Ancestors. It started looking like a coup d'état or a military invasion was brewing.
"No, we can't let that happen. We can't just sit and wait for death," said Xue Wu Tian. He was panicking. He had never been so afraid since he had become a Holy Godly Ancestor, and it was because of a tiny and insignificant cultivator of the ordinary Godly Ancestor layer!
"What do we do, Leader? I've heard that Lin Feng had already left Jiao Yu. Even though Jiao Yu is not powerful, Ta Han Yuan is almost a Holy Godly Ancestor, if Lin Feng receives cultivation resources from them, he may break through to the Holy Godly Ancestor layer soon. That would be a catastrophe; Lin Feng would then control five territories!" Xue Can Yun frowned. He had never thought Lin Feng would ever accomplish such great things.
Xue Wu Tian had naturally thought of those things, but he hadn't thought all this would happen so fast. Just the day before, he had not heard about Lin Feng being interesting in conquering the entire Region of the Eight Corners!
"Now, we have only one solution. As long as Lin Feng doesn't take control of Li Yu and Gan Yu as well as our territory, Xue Yu, the first territory, we still have a chance. You go to Great Elder Gan Wu Dao right now. Then you go and talk Li Chen in Li Yu.
"Us three need to have a meeting right now to talk about the alliance of our three territories, the faster the better! At the same time, tell them that they're not stupid, there won't be any conditions to agree because our cooperation is for their safety too, not just ours!
"We're at a dead end because of Lin Feng. If we give him more time, we'll collapse. We have to take drastic measures, then wait for the opportune moment to go into action," said Xue Can Yun. As soon as Gan Yu and Li Yu agreed to form an alliance with them, they would take action.
Xue Can Yun didn't dare waste any time. He left the great palace immediately.
I hope we'll be able to keep Lin Feng under control, thought Xue Wu Tian worriedly. He had lived a carefree life for too long, and had almost forgotten about cultivation. Since he was a Holy Godly Ancestor, he thought he could rest on his laurels.
Now a much younger man was causing trouble. Xue Wu Tian realized all this and was angry at himself. Even though he could easily kill Lin Feng, Lin Feng wouldn't give him the opportunity to find him and kill him. Lin Feng was also being helped by three Holy Godly Ancestors!
He couldn't get rid of three Holy Godly Ancestors alone!
Huang Yu, in a great palace...
Huang Xu Tian's corpse was resting inside a plain wooden coffin. Lin Feng didn't let the disciples of Huang Yu open it. He respected the corpse and the dead in general. He also kept a proper distance from the coffin and bowed.
"Master, you know who killed you. Your disciples are stupid, though. Now, Huang Yu has to make a decision and I hope, Master, that you'll understand that principle. Otherwise Cheng Shan wouldn't have hurried to kill you. He wants to control Huang Yu.
"I, Lin Feng, want to be the ultimate ruler of the Region of the Eight Corners. But I don't want to use force. I just want to cooperate with everybody. I want every party to benefit from this kind of agreement, not just me.
"I just hadn't thought you'd die... Sigh... So, regarding our cooperation, there is only one solution..."
"I'm here to decide about cooperation and such matters!"
Lin Feng wasn't done talking when he heard a child's voice. Everybody turned around and saw a ten-year-old child standing there. Lin Feng stared at him.
The child was a meter tall, and wearing simple white clothes. He looked like he had just cried, his eyes were red and still teary. Lin Feng thought of Jiang Xuan when he saw the boy.
"Who are you?" asked Lin Feng. A child wanted to negotiate with him! It meant he had a high status.
"I am the adopted son of the leader. He had no children, and I am his adopted son, Zhuang Ling Yun!" answered the boy. Tears kept flowing down his cheeks. He knelt down in front of the coffin, and the atmosphere became extremely sad.
Lin Feng looked at Zhuang Ling Yun. He was a ten-year-old kid and had the strength of the high-level Supreme God layer already. He didn't seem any less talented than Jiang Xuan. Jiang Xuan had inherited his forbidden body; what had Zhuang Ling Yun relied on to become so strong?
"Do you know who I am?" asked Lin Feng, smiling patiently.
"I do! You managed to change the course of history of the Region of the Eight Corners and you're a future overlord!" said Zhuang Ling Yun firmly.
Lin Feng was startled. He smiled wryly and asked, "How do you know?"
"I can divine things. It's my inherent talent," said Zhuang Ling Yun, smiling confidently. He was convinced he was at least in the top three of the World of Battles when it came to predicting things.
The disciples of Huang Yu all confirmed it.
Lin Feng was stupefied. That kid liked to divine things? He would be a master in investigations and riddles someday. Such cultivators could be extremely useful. They often had a lot to teach others.
"Can you predict my future?" asked Lin Feng. His curiosity was piqued.
"My strength is limited, but I can guess what will happen in the next five years," replied Zhuang Ling Yun, forcing a smile. He was unhappy about his strength; if he were as strong as Lin Feng, he would be able to predict what would happen in the following hundred years!
"Explain!" asked Lin Feng excitedly.
Zhuang Ling Yun glanced at him and the crowd, then at Miss Eight and the others. Zhuang Ling Yun said slowly, "In the following five years, the order of the Region of the Eight Corners will be shaken up. Within three years, the whole Region of the Eight Corners will submit and pledge allegiance to you, and finally be reunited.
"In five years, the Region of the Eight Corners will become one territory and jurisdiction. It will be out of Ni Huang's control, because in five years, you will be a new overlord. You will shake the north and at the same time, you will have a wonderful battle against Kun Dao and the whole World of Battles will be completely shaken.
"But after that, I'm not sure. I just know I'll know the rest when I break through to the Great Supreme God layer," Zhuang Ling Yun stated confidently.
Lin Feng was dumbstruck. He would really become an overlord within five years? If Zhuang Ling Yun didn't have a talent, Lin Feng wouldn't have believed him. Becoming an overlord was extremely difficult!
He had spent so much time and energy trying to break through to the ordinary Godly Ancestor layer already. The difference between the ordinary Godly Ancestor layer and the Earthly Godly Ancestor layer was gigantic, huge, almost unbelievable. He had to break through to the Spiritual Godly Ancestor layer and then the Holy Godly Ancestor layer, and only then he would be able to try and break through to the Earthly Godly Ancestor layer.
A cultivator had to have the strength of the Earthly Godly Ancestor layer to become an overlord!
Miss Eight and the others were also dumbstruck. If Zhuang Ling Yun wasn't wrong, then Lin Feng would become an overlord in less than ten years. Would the Yi Clan still need to fear the World Dragon Clan then?
Miss Eight and the others were in an indescribable mood.
Song Chou Jiu was delighted. He was happy for his brother, and for the Region of the Eight Corners. When he had immigrated to the Region of the Eight Corners, he thought it would become a unified territory, but there were too many barriers. Now Lin Feng was changing everything!
Lin Feng would reunify the Region of the Eight Corners, he would be a hero!
"You can guess my future, but how come you didn't guess your adoptive father's death?" asked Lin Feng.
Zhuang Ling Yun shook his head and sighed, "I told him. Five years ago, I told my father that if he adopted me, he would die in five years, but he still took me in."
"Boo hoo... Woo, woo woo!..." The boy burst into tears. He had predicted all this, but his adoptive father had still decided to adopt him. Even though the boy knew what was going to happen, he still felt sad when it happened because he wasn't mature.
Lin Feng sighed and hugged Zhuang Ling Yun. That little kid had had a difficult past.Lin Feng liked kids who had had a very difficult life like him.
"Master Lin Feng, do you want to adopt me?" asked Zhuang Ling Yun suddenly.
