"Dad, there's something wrong, Tian Su wouldn't have done something like this," said Lin Zhe Tian, pointing at the resplendent buildings. He had the impression there was something strange going on. The place was gigantic as well.
It was only the Holy Spirit Dynasty; how could it be as beautiful and vast as Gods' City in the Continent of the Gods?
Lin Feng also guessed that something had happened. The Holy Spirit Dynasty couldn't have changed so quickly. Lin Feng looked at Lin Zhe Tian and Huo Wu and said, "Let's go inside."
He flashed ahead and entered the palace of the Holy Spirit Dynasty. Huo Wu and Lin Zhe Tian followed.
Their presence drew many people's attention. Very quickly, many disciples surrounded them.
Lin Feng glanced at those disciples; they all had the strength of High-Level Holy Emperors. Therefore, Lin Feng immediately guessed that some unforeseen events had happened in the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
Back in the days, when Lin Feng was still in the Continent of the Nine Clouds, he was a Supreme Holy King, and High-Level Holy Emperors didn't exist here. But now there were hundreds of disciples who had the strength of the High-Level Holy Emperor layer, how was that possible?
Since there are High-Level Holy Emperors, maybe there are Holy Spirit Emperors as well, and even Godly Emperors, Lin Feng thought.
A few old men appeared, all the disciples stepped aside to open the way. Lin Feng faced them.
The old men studied Lin Feng. First, they were stupefied, then their expressions changed drastically. Some of them even took a few steps backwards.
"Elder, what's wrong?" asked the leader of the disciples, regarding Lin Feng icily.
The few old men didn't respond. They were extremely pale. Boom, boom, boom! The disciples were completely astonished and dumbstruck, because the old men fell on their knees before Lin Feng!
"Greetings, Ruler!" said the leader of the elders, his palms on the ground. He lowered his head, and didn't dare look at Lin Feng.
When the disciples heard the elder call Lin Feng "Ruler", they were astonished. Then they remembered that cultivator called Lin Feng who had been the Ruler of the continent for a short while.
"Hasn't he left?" whispered a disciple, staring at Lin Feng. He had seen Lin Feng's ten-thousand-meter-high statue in Tiantai. He had seen it only once, but he would remember it forever. He was astonished to see Lin Feng in the flesh, right there.
All the disciples stared at Lin Feng when they heard the elders. They had never seen Lin Feng's real face, but he was their ruler, and they had also seen his statue in Tiantai.
"Greetings, Ruler," said all the disciples one after another, also falling to their knees. They all looked at Lin Feng respectfully. Lin Feng was a legend in the Continent of the Nine Clouds. Many people dreamt of meeting him.
Everybody knelt down. Lin Feng wasn't used to that; three years ago he was used to it, but since he had gone through so much in the Continent of the Gods, it felt strange.
But now he had a sense of superiority. He was the ruler of this world.
Huo Wu's eyes twinkled in astonishment. She had never imagined that Lin Feng was worshiped in his world. He was the ruler of the Continent of the Nine Clouds? How incredible!
Lin Zhe Tian was used to this. He had seen his father become strong, growing from an ordinary disciple of Tiantai to the ruler of this world.
"Everybody stand up," ordered Lin Feng, smiling calmly.
The elders helped each other stand up. The disciples stood up silently and stared at Lin Feng.
"Ruler, didn't you go to a greater world? You came back?" asked the leader of the elders bravely. He wanted to see how strong Lin Feng had become. That elder already had the strength of the third Holy Spirit Emperor layer, after all, so he knew how strong Lin Feng was back in the days when he had left.
Therefore, he wondered whether Lin Feng was still qualified to be the ruler of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
However, no matter how hard he tried, he couldn't see Lin Feng's cultivation level, which meant he was far stronger than him, who was at the strength of the third Holy Spirit Emperor layer. Thinking about that, he regarded Lin Feng respectfully.
Lin Feng glanced at the old man and guessed what he was thinking. A tiny little cultivator of the third Holy Spirit Emperor layer had just inspected his strength, how could Lin Feng not see that? But Lin Feng ignored him because the difference between them was just too huge.
Lin Feng didn't tell the old man how strong he was, either, but he could see that the elders were excited. They brought Lin Feng to the biggest hall and had him sit in the top chair.
A few core disciples were allowed to sit with them in the room.
"You're an elder of the Dynasty?" asked Lin Feng. He had never seen that elder.
The elder nodded, "Indeed, I used to be an elder in Champion University; I joined the Dynasty two years ago," said the old man. He didn't dare lie.
When Lin Feng heard that, he was surprised. "Champion University?"
Lin Feng had many memories from Champion University; Ji Chang, Ancestor Xuan Tian, and the others...
However, the old man interrupted Lin Feng in his thoughts. Lin Feng was even more worried when he heard the old man.
"In short, Champion University has dispersed already. It doesn't exist anymore," said the old man, sighing sorrowfully. The other old men nodded. They were also from Champion University!
When Lin Feng heard that, he asked, "Why did it disperse? What happened to the Ancestors? Are they...?"
"They're still alive, but they couldn't protect the university. Three years ago, one month after you left, everything changed in the Continent of the Nine Clouds. Someone called Fu Su Rong came here. He created a new university and called it Dragon Capital University. After a few months, it became the most powerful university, far more powerful than Champion University.
"Ancestor Xuan Tian and and Ancestor Shi Tian tried to look for Fu Su Rong. However, without even seeing him, Champion University was defeated by Dragon Capital University. When the news spread around in the Continent of the Nine Clouds, many geniuses wanted to join Dragon Capital University, and nobody wanted to join Champion University anymore.
"Before long, Champion University had almost disappeared; only a few elders, Ancestor Shi Tian, and Ancestor Xuan Tian were left. The two ancestors were so sad that they dismantled Champion University."
The old man sighed and paled when he finished. He was extremely sad because of what had happened.
Lin Feng looked grim. Fu Su Rong?
It seemed like that guy had already cast greedy eyes on the Continent of the Nine Clouds. Was it because of him?
Lin Feng then thought of what Yi Ren Lei had told him, and everything seemed clear. Maybe Fu Su Rong had seen an opportunity in the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
Lin Feng suddenly felt furious. Fu Su Rong hadn't said anything about the Continent of the Nine Clouds when they had met in the Continent of the Gods. If Wen Ao Xue hadn't told him everything, Lin Feng might not have come back. Now he was here, and Champion University had been dismantled?!
