"She left. She disappeared from Gods City," said Lin Zhe Tian. His face paled and his voice was trembling. He felt guilty. He hadn't managed to take care of his mother. However, he had also been stuck in Jian Zhen's small world, where he had cultivated really hard. Once he broke through to the top of the ninth Holy Spirit Emperor layer, the Du Hu Government told him that his mother had left.
When Lin Feng heard that, he looked in the direction of the Du Hu Government. He didn't say anything for a long time. Back then, he had asked them to take care of Meng Qing and the old man had accepted. Now that Meng Qing had left, what was that supposed to mean, and where was she? Maybe that Godly Emperor Du Hu knew?
"Get some rest now, Zhe Tian. Tomorrow morning, we'll go to the Du Hu Government and talk to Godly Emperor Du Hu."
The next day, early in the morning, two guests arrived at the Du Hu Government...
One of them was the Great Elder of Sword Mountain, and the other one was the Great Leader Xuan Yuan City. As the Great Leader of Xuan Yuan City, his status was equal to that of Godly Emperor Du Hu. The managing disciples didn't waste any time, bringing the two of them to a living room and politely asking them to wait for Godly Emperor Du Hu.
After a short time, Godly Emperor Du Hu arrived in the living-room. He was very old and crooked, and hadn't changed. He was holding a purple walking stick which suited his godly aura. It was a supreme godly imperial weapon.
It was the first time Lin Feng had seen a supreme godly imperial weapon. Godly Emperor Tian didn't seem to have any. It proved that Godly Emperor Du Hu was extremely strong.
"Hehe, Great Leader Lin Feng, what an honor to have you here. You must be so proud of your achievements," said Godly Emperor Du Hu. He didn't sit down immediately, standing to show Lin Feng respect.
Lin Feng replied quickly. Even though their social status was equivalent, Lin Feng was not as strong. Lin Feng felt grateful because Godly Emperor Du Hu had helped him so much. If the old man hadn't been there, who would have protected Meng Qing? Godly Emperor Tian initially wanted to kidnap Meng Qing to threaten him!
"Please, Master. Please sit down," said Lin Feng, pulling the old man down next to him.
"Little friend, I know why you're here. If you hadn't come, I would have come to Sword Mountain myself," said the old man as Lin Feng sat back down.
Lin Feng looked at Godly Emperor Du Hu and waited.
"Little friend, Meng Qing left a letter for you. She asked me to give it to you if you ever came back. In case you didn't come back, she told me to give it to Lin Zhe Tian," said Godly Emperor Du Hu. He raised his left hand, golden lights gathered and a letter appeared. The old man put it on the table in front of Lin Feng.
Lin Feng took the letter, extremely anxious. He opened it and saw a snowy-white paper and Meng Qing's beautiful handwriting. The letter smelled like her, too.
Husband, if you read this letter, it means I left Gods City already. When you were in danger, I was horrified. I didn't want to be separated from you, I was extremely sad. I have decided to go to Godsland. I think there are more opportunities there and I hope I'll be able to become stronger there. Then, when I become strong enough, I'll be able to help you. Don't worry about me. Your wife.
Zhe Tian, if you see this letter, don't worry about me. Everything I do is for you and your father. Work hard, my son. If we become strong, we'll be able to help your father. I also have to work very hard. I hope you're not angry at me for not being able to stay there. Your Mother, Meng Qing.
When Lin Feng read the letter, he felt even more guilty. He missed her so much...
Lin Feng gave the letter to Lin Zhe Tian for him to read. Lin Zhe Tian looked dispirited too. The atmosphere became heavy and sad.
Godly Emperor Du Hu smiled. He stood up and walked slowly away. He knew that Lin Feng and Lin Zhe Tian already knew what they were going to do. Staying wasn't necessary.
After a long time, Lin Feng raised his head and stood up. He said to Lin Zhe Tian, "Little Tian, take care. I'm going."
"Dad, are you going to Godsland as well?" asked Lin Zhe Tian. He already knew Lin Feng was going to do it, but when he said it, Lin Zhe Tian still felt sad and worried.
"Yes. I need to find your mother and I need to help Yan Di. Take good care of yourself," Lin Feng nodded.
Lin Zhe Tian nodded back. He wasn't a little boy anymore. He was mature, and understood these things. They were all walking different paths.
Lin Feng didn't want to live his life in a mountain, a government, a sect... He was a traveler. He liked to explore and gain experience.
Lin Zhe Tian was in Sword Mountain for the time being. He needed to learn from Jian Zhen. Sword Mountain was doing so much to raise him, they wanted to help him break through to the Godly Emperor layer. Then Sword Mountain and the five other groups would belong to different worlds.
Sword Mountain would rise. They'd leave Gods City and find a better and more suitable place.
"Good luck, my son. Don't disappoint Master Jian Zhen," said Lin Feng after they came out of the Du Hu Government. He rose up in the sky.
"I will become strong and help you, dad," said Lin Zhe Tian, clenching his fists in determination. Since he had seen his father suffer so much, he was even more determined to help him. He didn't want to be a burden.
"I'll wait for you!" replied Lin Feng, smiling in satisfaction. He looked at the shuttle, where Huang Nü was waiting. He glanced at his son a final time and jumped into the shuttle. They flew off in the direction of Godsland.
Lin Zhe Tian watched his father leave, not minding that his father had a new wife. He knew that his mother was the woman Lin Feng loved the most!
Lin Feng and Huang Nü flew away. Lin Feng didn't know that some other friends of his were going to go through hardships. Some of them would even nearly die.
Illusion Forest was fifteen hundred li from Godsland. They had to cross it to go to Godsland. There were two paths in the forest. One of them led to the Four Temples and the Gods' Government in the east, and the other led to Godsland and the Three Dynasties in the west.
Yan Di was in the Celestial Evolution Holy Dynasty. Therefore, Lin Feng had to cross Godsland no matter what. Godsland was between him and the Celestial Evolution Holy Dynasty.
The Illusion Forest was called a forest, but it wasn't really a forest, there were just many trees. It was called an illusion, but it wasn't an illusion anymore, either. There were just many hunters fighting there, and many mercenaries too. They kept traveling back and forth between Godsland and the Gods Government.
Lin Feng and Huang Nü traveled for two days before arriving in Illusion Forest. When they arrived, they saw many beautiful emerald green trees. Illusion Forest was hundreds of li from east to west and a thousand li from north to south. Crossing it took at least five days.
"My father told me about Illusion Forest. There's a green miasma inside according to legends. People who are not strong enough can't cross it. Even when people are strong, they usually need the help of some mercenaries or hunters who are familiar with the place.
"Illusion Forest also has many terrifying beasts and creatures. There are many corpses scattered about, all people who died in the forest. Therefore, people who want to travel between Godsland and the Gods' Government usually do it using the public road."
