"How is Little Lin Feng?" asked Hou Qing Lin hastily when he saw Jeston finally come out of Lin Feng's room. Hou Qing Lin and the others were standing outside with him.
Jeston looked stern. Everybody noticed it. He glanced at Hou Qing Lin, then back at the room, and said, "Lin Feng fought against Zong Tong and Tian Di consecutively. He had already used his full strength to fight against them. If he hadn't used Ling Xue's strength, Tian Kui's last attack would have killed him."
"But two months have passed and he hasn't awoken yet?" asked Xing Zhan, coming out of the crowd.
Jeston looked at Lin Feng's fellow disciples and Tiantai's elders. Only Xue Ran wasn't there. He hadn't even seen the battle at Long Yun Peak. It wasn't the right time to investigate that matter.
"But he won't wake up, and I won't make him wake up," sighed Jeston after looking pensive for a few minutes. Everybody was astonished. They didn't understand his words.
"What do you mean? Why don't you want our teacher to wake up?" asked Ye Chen angrily. He was furious inside. He had seemingly forgotten that Jeston had helped him break through.
Jeston knew how Ye Chen felt, and didn't take it to heart. He frowned and said, "I am afraid that if he awakes, he'll be different... cold and emotionless."
"Stop beating about the bush!" shouted Ruo Xie, suddenly appearing there.
Jeston hadn't left that room for two months. Ruo Xie had just seen Lin Feng once since they had brought him back. Ruo Xie was devastated because of what had happened to Lin Feng.
Ruo Xie knew that Tiantai couldn't survive without him, and even less without Lin Feng!
Hou Qing Lin let him pass in front of him. Ruo Xie was the great manager of Tiantai. He was in charge of almost everything in Tiantai.
Ruo Xie looked at Jeston deep and hard.
Jeston nodded. He didn't hide the truth from them. He didn't believe there were any traitors in the group. Tian Di was dead. The Celestial Emperors Dynasty had already started collapsing. The Great Alliance of the Hundred Worlds was sinking into chaos. Even though the reasons were unclear, the enemies of Tiantai hadn't attacked them.
"Lin Feng's forbidden body is broken. When Tian Kui attacked him, he used almost all his strength, and Lin Feng's forbidden body broke apart instantly. Luckily, he did have his forbidden body, or his primordial spirit would have broken apart.
"Without his forbidden body, Lin Feng has no strength, because his cultivation is entirely based on his forbidden body. So right now, he has no strength at all," said Jeston firmly.
The atmosphere was eerily silent. Everybody was dumbstruck, staring blankly at Jeston.
After a long time, Ruo Xie broke the silence and said to Jeston, "Alright, we understand. Thank you for your help, Lewis."
"When he wakes up, he'll need your help," nodded Jeston when he heard Ruo Xie, then walked away.
Jeston was extremely sad, too. Jeston and Lin Feng were the only Terrans in the Continent of the Gods. They had become close to one another. Even though he was from Europe and Lin Feng was Chinese, they were still close to one another.
Jeston left the place. Ruo Xie, Hou Qing Lin and the others opened the door and entered the room. Meng Qing and Tang You You were already there. Huang Nü and Huo Wu entered the room along with Ruo Xie and the others, then walked closer to Meng Qing. They were extremely worried.
It was worth noting that next to Meng Qing, there was a pretty and charming woman. The woman was wearing a snowy-white skirt, like Meng Qing. Her Qi was also ice-cold.
Lin Feng had broken through to the eighth Godly Emperor Layer. Meng Qing wasn't weak, either. She had the strength of the seventh Godly Emperor Layer.
After Ling Xue had come out of Lin Feng's body, she had turned into a human being again. Lin Feng had turned into an ordinary man. He had no cultivation anymore. He didn't even have the strength of the Qi layer anymore. He couldn't be more ordinary.
Ruo Xie looked at Lin Feng. Ruo Xie was already devastated and extremely sad, but when he saw Lin Feng like that without any Qi, he almost burst into tears, but barely controlled himself.
Some elders came in, some others walked out, devastated. All their strong cultivators had gathered there on that day.
Time passed slowly, from morning to afternoon. The sun was less scorching than usual. Huang Nü left after a short time. The Continent of the Gods had sunk into chaos. She had many things to do in the Great Huang Dynasty. Many unexpected events happened every day. If she stopped taking care of the Great Huang Dynasty, it might collapse.
Shortly after Huang Nü left, Lin Feng awoke.
Lin Feng opened his eyes. It was all blurry. He gradually started seeing again. He saw all his fellow disciples, the elders of Tiantai, and his wives, as well as Ling Xue.
Lin Feng tried to move his head, but it felt extremely painful. His chest was sore. Lin Feng quickly remembered what had happened at Long Yun Peak. Tian Di was dead and had made everyone believe that Lin Feng was the murderer. Before Tian Di died, he had plotted against Lin Feng one last time.
Tian Kui had seen that and slapped him, then everything was darkness.
Lin Feng sat up. Everybody was startled. But very quickly, some people smiled.
"Little Lin Feng, you're awake," Ruo Xie smiled. Everybody could see that it was a sad smile though.
Lin Feng was confused and asked, "What's the matter, brother?"
"I-I'm alright," said Ruo Xie shaking his head. He didn't tell Lin Feng that Zun Xie and Ancestor Fo had carried out a suicide attack against Tian Kui to protect him.
But Lin Feng had known them for hundreds of years, he knew there was something wrong.
He looked at Meng Qing and asked, "Meng Qing, tell me what happened."
Meng Qing glanced at Lin Feng and then at Ruo Xie. Ruo Xie shook his head. He was extremely worried. He didn't want to tell Lin Feng anything, especially since he had just woken up. But Meng Qing knew how her husband was; if they didn't tell him, he'd leave hastily and investigate.
Therefore, Meng Qing told Lin Feng everything.
Lin Feng remained silent. The atmosphere was heavy.
After a long time, Lin Feng raised his head and sighed, "Meng Qing, give Ruo Xie the letter Mister Zun Xie left for him."
"I finally know why he left a letter for him. He had anticipated everything," said Meng Qing, recalling the hut in Two Worlds Mountain. She sighed sorrowfully; Mister Zun Xie had truly loved his disciple.
Meng Qing took out the letter from her sleeve and gave it to Ruo Xie. Ruo Xie was surprised. He didn't understand, Zun Xie had left a letter for him? When he saw it, he couldn't help it, and he burst into tears.
It was the first time Lin Feng had seen Ruo Xie cry. Hou Qing Lin, Mu Bei, and the others were extremely sad for their fellow disciple. What was written in that letter?
Lin Feng stood up and clapped Ruo Xie's shoulder. He didn't know what to tell him to cheer him up.
"Never forget your teacher."
"I know, Little Lin Feng," said Ruo Xie, nodding and smiling.
"Alright, it's alright. Everybody can disperse," Lin Feng said, smiling broadly. Let bygones be bygones, thought Lin Feng.
However, when they saw Lin Feng smile, everybody was stupefied, including Ruo Xie.
Because Lin Feng's forbidden body had been destroyed, Tiantai was under pressure.
When Lin Feng saw their expressions, he understood there was something wrong. He slowly turned grim. He knew his forbidden body had a problem; he had sensed it when he woke up.
But could it make him become dispirited, depressed, cold, or emotionless?
Lin Feng just had a killing smile.
