One night passed. All the old Masters who wanted an explanation didn't say anything after that. Fu Dao would kill them otherwise.
They weren't stupid, and knew what it meant when Fu Dao said they could come to the main branch to talk to him. Even Qing Ling Chao shut up after that. They had no choice but to control their anger. They hoped Lin Feng would help them regain face because at the moment, they felt ashamed to be from lower worlds.
Now, because of Lin Feng, no young genius dared criticize young geniuses from lower worlds in public places. Fu Dao had warned everybody that if anyone humiliated and provoked young geniuses from the lower worlds, they had to understand that Lin Feng could kill them. It was absolutely normal.
In ordinary times, Fu Dao would have never tolerated it if people from the Region of the Eight Corners had provoked them!
In the central part of Man Yu...
Chu Chun Qiu and the others were seated together. They looked overjoyed and excited. This time, they had made the Alliance of the Young Geniuses of the World of Battles lose face. Lin Feng was so cruel! He had killed two birds with one stone. Not only did he cost the Alliance of the Young Geniuses of the World of Battles face, but he also made the old Masters of the Country of Eternity become aware of the situation. Things were becoming more complicated for the Alliance of the Young Geniuses of the World of Battles.
Chu Chun Qiu, Prince Ghost, and the others were overjoyed. They kept laughing ecstatically. On top of that, they were all like brothers now, especially Zi Jing Xiao, Chu Chun Qiu, and the others. Han Xuan and Zi Jing Xiao were biological brothers, so they were naturally close to each other. Liu Jian had no problem either, since Lin Feng was also from Tian Dao Yuan.
They were all overjoyed. However, Lin Feng didn't look happy at that moment. He was getting drunk but he still seemed absent-minded and preoccupied. At the beginning, Chu Chun Qiu and the others didn't notice anything. Everybody realized Lin Feng looked worried after a while, so they all stopped drinking.
"Lin Feng, why are you worried?" asked Chu Chun Qiu. He knew Lin Feng well enough to know Lin Feng was rarely sad or preoccupied like this. When it happened, it usually didn't last. But this time, he didn't understand. They had cost the Alliance of the Young Geniuses of the World of Battles much face, but Lin Feng looked depressed. Why?
"Lin Feng, tell us, we'll help you solve the issue." Prince Ghost still wore a mask and a plaited bamboo hat, but everybody was used to that now.
Lin Feng raised his head and glanced at the crowd. He smiled indifferently and waved, "I'm alright! Hahaha! Come on, let's get drunk!"
"Haha, good! Let's drink!!" Zong Hu burst into laughter too. The atmosphere felt less awkward again.
"Ok, you continue, I have something to do," Lin Feng said, putting his glass down without even realizing it. Chu Chun Qiu and Song Chou Jiu were to his sides, so they heard him first.
The two men understood, so they just looked at Lin Feng leave silently. The remaining people actually understood what was going on, but since he didn't want to tell them, it meant it was a secret.
"Come, drink! Drink!! Hahahahahaha!!" Nobody knew when Zhuang Ling Yun got there, but the brat was holding a wine jug and completely red, a chicken wing in his other hand. He looked happy. When they saw the drunk kid, they all laughed to tears.
It was dark outside of the great palace. There was no moon tonight. The stars were not shining, either. Chu Chun Qiu and Lin Feng were both wearing black clothes.
"Lin Feng, tell me what the problem is," said Chu Chun Qiu. He didn't waste time. Song Chou Jiu remained silent.
Lin Feng looked at them both and nodded evenly. "I am worried about the old Masters. What if they give up on us because of the pressure?"
"Why would they? So many old Masters, all of them are pillars in their respective groups. Why would they feel pressured?" Chu Chun Qiu thought Lin Feng was making a fuss over a trifle.
"They are pillars, indeed. However, they have left the Country of Eternity for a long time now. Don't meddle in affairs that are not part of your position, he who holds no rank in a state does not discuss its policies... you understand?" (Translator's Note: a quote from Confucius)
"As long as they live in the World of Battles, they cannot cause trouble here. You don't understand the young geniuses of the Alliance of the Young Geniuses of the World of Battles, and you don't even know how strong their Vice Leader and Leader are. I have to understand and assess the situation," Lin Feng said. He seemed exhausted. He had never felt so tired because of work. Even when Chu Chun Qiu wanted to kill Lin Feng, Lin Feng hadn't felt so annoyed.
Chu Chun Qiu waited for Lin Feng to continue.
"Fu Dao, the Human Ancestor's great disciple, once got angry because of a woman and killed five Spiritual Godly Ancestors and a hundred ordinary Godly Ancestors in fury. It became a big thing in the World of Battles. People still take delight in talking about his achievements. He was already a Spiritual Godly Ancestor back then.
"Mo Jun is a fierce, ambitious and ruthless cultivator because a strong cultivator bullied and humiliated him for a long time in the Demon Region. Then, he endured hardships to accomplish his ambitions.
(Translator's Note: usually refers to Yue Gou Jian, King Gou Jian of Yue Gou Jian endured hardships to accomplish his ambitions by sleeping on brushwood and drinking gall)
"He suffered for a thousand years before he came out. His swordsmanship was incredible. He went to see that Holy Godly Ancestor, slew him and cut him into pieces. He crushed the Holy Godly Ancestor's body into mush. Mo Jun was only a Spiritual Godly Ancestor back then.
"Do you understand now? They are fearless. They don't care about the old Masters of the lower worlds. So, whose side are those old Masters on now? Usually, people decide to side with the stronger ones," Lin Feng said.
"What you mean is that they can put pressure on those old Masters?" asked Chu Chun Qiu. He didn't really think Lin Feng was right, but he asked anyway.
"Indeed. That's what I think," Lin Feng smiled mirthlessly.
"Why do you think that?" asked Chu Chun Qiu, humoring him. Why was Lin Feng convinced their enemies were so strong?
Lin Feng smiled confidently, "Because that's exactly what I would do!"
"Haha! I knew you'd say that. Indeed, you're a monstrously strong cultivator and so are they, so you probably have a similar way of thinking. They are rich and strong. But so are you! Haha! And you even destroyed the Phoen...... Eh... Cough, cough!! Sorry, I didn't mean it," Chu Chun Qiu started laughing, but then Song Chou Jiu looked at him furiously, and Chu Chun Qiu immediately stopped talking. He realized he had said something wrong. Lin Feng was finally done grieving, and Chu Chun Qiu had reminded him of those things...
Lin Feng smiled wryly. He knew what Chu Chun Qiu wanted to say. Lin Feng had also destroyed people because of a woman. He had destroyed a third of the Phoenix Clan! With the strength of the Spiritual Godly Ancestor layer, he had butchered Zhen Yu, a Holy Godly Ancestor!
They were the same. People would remember him forever, just like they would remember Mo Jun and Fu Dao.
"Brother Song, help me send an invitation. I'd like to invite Fu Dao to come to the Region of the Eight Corners!"
"Su Qing, help me send an invitation. I'd like to invite Leader Lin to come and pay us a visit," said Fu Dao from the main branch of the Alliance of the Young Geniuses of the World of Battles. Su Qing looked quite solemn. Even if he didn't understand what Fu Dao was trying to do, he left without hesitation.
Fu Dao watched Su Qing disappear, then turned around and looked at the dark sky tonight in deep thought.
It was starting to brighten outside when a disciple reported to Fu Dao that Lin Feng had invited him to come to the Region of the Eight Corners. Fu Dao couldn't help but smile. Great minds think alike...
He had realized Lin Feng was smart and strong, so he wanted to invite him over. Now Lin Feng wanted to invite him too! How funny!
Wasn't that the proof? It proved that no matter what, Lin Feng was at least as strong as him. Of course, Lin Feng was just a Spiritual Godly Ancestor, while Fu Dao was already a Holy Godly Ancestor, but that didn't mean anything.
He had heard that Lin Feng had killed Zhen Yu, the leader of Ni Huang's five war generals, a Holy Godly Ancestor. Therefore, Fu Dao even thought that Lin Feng might have the strength of the Holy Godly Ancestor layer.
"Interesting, very interesting." Fu Dao smiled thoughtfully.
"Interesting, very interesting." Lin Feng was in his room when he heard Fu Dao wanted to invite him, and he also smiled. They had thought the same thing.
Lin Feng thought more and more highly of Fu Dao. Before, he had just heard legends and stories of him. Now, it felt as if he knew and understood him a little bit better. He couldn't help but admire him; Fu Dao was at least as smart as him.
Lin Feng knew what that meant. He had invited Fu Dao because he wanted to humiliate the young geniuses of the World of Battles, but Lin Feng didn't think it was necessary anymore. For the time being, the young geniuses of the Country of Eternity were either dead or they had joined his Alliance. He didn't need to provoke the Alliance of the Young Geniuses of the World of Battles anymore.
The only reason why he would do that was for the future generations of young geniuses from the Country of Eternity. Would the next generations be bullied and harassed as well? But Lin Feng would be strong enough to send some assistants to pick them up on arrival. He wouldn't give the young geniuses of the World of Battles any opportunity to harass more geniuses from the Country of Eternity.
Lin Feng was confident that after a short time, Jiang Hao, Yao Yu Yan, Qing Xin Yue, and others would come to the World of Battles. Lin Feng wanted to take precautions for the future generations of newcomers to the World of Battles.
"Tell Fu Dao that since we invited each other at the same time, we can first meet somewhere else."
"Tell the Region of the Eight Corners Lin Feng and I can meet in Jing City."
Lin Feng and Fu Dao sent a message at the same time.
Before nighttime, they both received a reply!
"Alright, in two weeks in Jing City." Lin Feng made up his mind.
Jing City was in Ni Huang's jurisdiction and close to the Region of the Eight Corners, but it didn't belong to Lin Feng. The leader of Jing City was Jing Rui, an overlord. Lin Feng wouldn't dare cause trouble there. Jing Rui was Ancestor Nü's disciple, and his influential group was in Ni Huang's jurisdiction.
It was a complicated situation, so Lin Feng and Fu Dao were both reassured. They weren't afraid the other party would plot.
