"I should be the one asking you that, do you really intend to do that?" said Lin Feng icily.
"Indeed," said Yuan Xuan without the slightest hesitation. He looked quite solemn. He really wanted to do attack. That was the only way, otherwise, his report to his superiors wouldn't be accepted, and his actions wouldn't be justified. At the same time, it was also an opportunity.
"Hehe," said Lin Feng when he heard how certain and determined Yuan Xuan sounded. He smiled indifferently. He also seemed a bit disappointed and amused at the same time, but on the inside, he realized the whole situation was getting out of control. Yuan Xuan was determined to punish and kill the inhabitants of Criminals' Village, especially Mo Zhang and Mo Fang.
"Anyway, if you don't have any other questions, please leave. Don't forget what your job is. You're not supposed to do things like this. Otherwise, you could be accused of disrupting public order, which wouldn't be good since you're the leader of Xuan Yuan City," said Yuan Xuan looking glum. He stood up and got ready to leave the courtyard.
Lin Feng didn't prevent him from leaving, because it would just bring more trouble. It would ruin his plan too, and then saving the hundreds of inhabitants of Criminals' Village, and Mo Fang and Mo Zhang, would be impossible.
Lin Feng's face stiffened, and he clenched his fists. Huang Nü stood up, looking worried. She wasn't worried about Mo Fang, she was worried about Lin Feng, as she didn't want him to take useless risks.
"Let's go back," said Huang Nü, grabbing Lin Feng's arm gently.
Lin Feng nodded and they went back to the inn.
In the room, the atmosphere was heavy. Huang Nü was seated on the bed, looking worried. Lin Feng was standing by the window and looking outside. The golden light of the sun felt warm. Godly Emperor Blood was seated on a chair and was drinking tea as if the whole situation had nothing to do with him.
After a long time, Lin Feng looked at Godly Emperor Blood. He was sure Godly Emperor Blood had a better solution.
"Old man, about what you asked me, I accept, if you save them," said Lin Feng, clenching his fist in determination. Godly Emperor Blood probably had a solution, but he probably wanted something in exchange, otherwise, why would he constantly help Lin Feng? He definitely had a goal.
A big smile appeared on Godly Emperor Blood's face when Lin Feng said that. He raised his head, when he saw that Lin Feng looked so nervous, and looked amused. "You dare make such a promise for them?"
"Yes, I can't watch Mo Fang die. He's my friend. He's also one of the Demon Emperor's descendants," said Lin Feng.
"But what do the descendants of the Demon Emperor have to do with you? I am directly related to the Demon Emperor, but I am not doing anything to save them, why would you want to save them?" asked Godly Emperor Blood, chuckling softly. It didn't seem like he intended to do anything.
Lin Feng took a deep breath, hoping Godly Emperor Blood would take him seriously.
Godly Emperor Blood was surprised, he had never seen Lin Feng look so serious, even when he had had an altercation with Godly Emperor Tian. Godly Emperor Blood had a bad premonition.
"Master, if you don't help, then leave me alone," said Lin Feng. He took out the Eight Times Nine Celestial Skill.
"If you think I shouldn't have studied the Eight Times Nine Celestial Skill, you can take it back and remove everything related to the skill from my memories. Thank you, though," Lin Feng sighed. He put the Celestial skill on the table. He sounded extremely determined. Then he turned to Huang Nü and said, "Little Huang, if anything happens to me, don't try and save me, go back to the city, okay?"
"No, Lin Feng, what are you doing?" said Huang Nü suddenly. She didn't understand. She was confused, what could she do? She grabbed Lin Feng's left arm and held him tightly. She didn't want him to leave.
"Little Huang, I'm sorry. I promised I would protect you forever, but if anything happens to me I can't, then may I be cursed forever. Don't worry, if I die, don't try and save them. You don't need to," said Lin Feng. He felt guilty, he had promised to protect her forever, but could he do it? What if he died?
"Lin Feng, are you stupid? Even if they're important to you, why would you risk your life and die? Even if they're important, isn't your friend Yan Di more important? Don't forget that he's in danger, if you die because you act foolishly, who will help him?" shouted Huang Nü.
Her face was red, she was very angry.
Lin Feng shivered when she told him that, remembering Yan Di. Yan Di had always been there for him. He had even risked his life several times for Lin Feng. So many years had passed, and yet he had never had such a wonderful friend as Yan Di.
Yan Di was in danger. His life wasn't in danger, but he had to obtain something, the legacy of Godly Emperor Tian Yan was in danger. He needed someone he could trust to achieve his mission.
If Lin Feng died because Mo Fang had acted stupidly, what would Yan Di do?
There were many other enemies he had to get rid of, who would do that if he died? Godly Emperor Tian and Godly Emperor Lei despised him, hated him, and hoped he'd die. They wanted to use Meng Qing and Lin Zhe Tian to threaten Lin Feng.
He still had so many things to do!
Lin Feng thought about it, he had mixed feelings.
When Huang Nü saw that Lin Feng had calmed down, she was relieved. She sighed and said, "Husband, I know you are a good, honest, kind-hearted, and righteous man, but being too kind could actually lead to your destruction sometimes."
"But I..." said Lin Feng. He was so sad. He felt powerless, guilty... But why did he feel guilty? He hadn't forced Mo Fang to go into the palace. Second, the inhabitants of Criminals' Village hadn't been kidnapped because of him.
Third, and the most important reason, he couldn't help them get rid of their criminal status, at least for the time being. So why did he feel guilty?
Lin Feng felt guilty because Mo Tu had died. That was the only reason why he felt guilty.
"Master, I..." Lin Feng pulled a long face. He turned to Godly Emperor Blood. However, the old man had already disappeared.
"Little boy, you owe me! Remember that!"
Godly Emperor Blood was furious, Lin Feng shivered, what was the old man doing? Was he going to save them? But the old man only had the strength of the Half-Godly Emperor layer, how could he fight against Yuan Xuan, who had the strength of the third Godly Emperor layer?
"Little Huang, I have to go and see. Don't worry. I will be reasonable," Lin Feng said, turning around. Lin Feng cared about Huang Nü more and more with time.
Huang Nü looked worried, but she nodded. She said, "I'll come with you. I'm your wife, I should stay with you."
"Alright, let's go," said Lin Feng without hesitation. He took her hand and they flew away as fast as they could.
It wasn't the third day yet, only one day had passed, but Ya City was already lively, because Godly Emperor Blood was trying to use force to save those people.
"Blood Ocean Territory! Activate!" Godly Emperor Blood's face stiffened, he bit his tongue and spat out blood. He suddenly looked even older, as if his spirit had started drying up. He almost looked like a corpse, miserable.
When he spat out the blood, a blood-red light surrounded him, and blood Qi invaded the space over a thousand meters. Everything around him withered, buildings turned into an ocean of blood. Everything happened so suddenly.
Yuan Xuan was about to go and see Mo Zhang and Mo Fang, but he suddenly smelled blood. His face paled. He put his hand on his chest, and had the impression that his blood was about to explode. It was very painful.
Suddenly, his cultivation decreased.
Third layer, second layer, first layer!
Kacha, kacha, kacha...
Three sounds spread in the air. His bones crackled as his face paled. He had the impression he was becoming a Half-Godly Emperor again.
"No! How is this possible?!" Yuan Xuan felt so weak, he hadn't felt so weak in such a long time.
At that moment, Godly Emperor Blood descended from the sky, landing on the bluestone ground. Luckily, Lin Feng and Huang Nü arrived in time, Lin Feng released pure strength into Godly Emperor Blood's broken soul and healed him.
"Cough, cough, little boy, cough, cough, I risked my life for this, his cultivation level is now much lower. Go, save them. I need to rest..." said Godly Emperor Blood, collapsing. His hair was even whiter than before. He looked exhausted. After that, he fell asleep, blood-red lights flashed and the old man disappeared.
He collapsed in Lin Feng's spirit world.
Lin Feng felt guilty. However, he didn't have time to think too much, he raised his head and looked at Yuan Xuan with dire intent.
"You? Lin Feng? You want to die," said Yuan Xuan, his hand on his chest. He looked extremely pale, even as he glared at Lin Feng ferociously.
