Chapter 291: Lin Zhe Tian’s Depression!
Edited by RED
The Elder of Punishments looked at Lin Feng and his wife.
Lin Feng didn’t say anything. Meng Qing clenched her fists in worry.
The Elder of Punishments was stupefied, he had no idea that amazing cultivator was Lin Feng’s son. When the father is a lion, the son cannot be a dog!
The elder already knew that Lin Feng was extremely talented, it wasn’t surprising that his son was also extremely strong and talented.
“I see, Lin Zhe Tian is your son… so of course, I will tell you what I know, but…”
“But what?!” asked Meng Qing hastily. They were both extremely nervous. The Elder of Punishments looked worried.
“Lin Zhe Tian came here around six months ago, but back then, he only had the strength of the Low-Level Holy Emperor layer. Some ordinary disciples of Sword Mountain bullied him, and the Mountain Protecting Elder had compassion for him, so he recruited him as a disciple.
“I don’t know why, but after the Mountain Protecting Elder recruited him as a disciple, he started spending much time alone inside. His progress was also stupefying. In less half a year, from the Low-Level Holy Emperor layer, he successively broke through to the third Holy Spirit Emperor layer,” sighed the Elder of Punishments.
Lin Feng, listening to this, was happy to hear that, it was good news. His son had progressed very quickly, just like him!
“But something unexpected happened. Lin Zhe Tian challenged a disciple of the top ten and lost. Then, he kind of gave up on cultivation, and his personality changed a lot too. The Mountain Protecting Elder used to compliment him all the time, but then…”
“Now, he doesn’t want to talk about Lin Zhe Tian anymore. He doesn’t know what to do for him either, he even sent Lin Zhe Tian to the Sword Tower, but it didn’t work…
“Initially, we thought he would become a pillar of Sword Mountain someday, who would have thought something like that would happen?” The Elder of Punishments sighed sadly. Then, he raised his head and looked at Lin Feng and Meng Qing, Lin Zhe Tian’s parents! Maybe they could think of a way to change his mind.
“Master, where’s my son now?” Lin Feng frowned. Meng Qing waited for the answer expectantly.
“… He left Sword Mountain, I think. He went into the wild, he must have become a recluse already,” replied the Elder of Punishments, shaking his head and sighing.
“Alright, thank you, Master. It’s late already, I told Elder Li Jian I would go over to his place. Tell me if Zhe Tian comes back.”
“Don’t worry, Zhe Tian is almost like a disciple to me, I will help him if I can. Don’t worry,” nodded the Elder of Punishments. He knew that Lin Feng didn’t feel like going to see Elder Li Jian at that moment, because he had other things in mind.
Lin Feng nodded and looked at Meng Qing. Her eyes were red, and her Qi was colder than usual. Lin Feng sighed. He knew Meng Qing wouldn’t be able to sleep unless she saw Zhe Tian.
Lin Feng hugged Meng Qing. She smiled to show Lin Feng she’d be fine.
Lin Feng couldn’t do much but nod, then he flashed away in the direction of Elder Li Jian’s residence.
It was already late in the evening. The way to the palace was completely dark, but there were lights in the roads of the sect. Since the elder had come out of the tower, all his disciples were extremely happy and the disciples of some other elders also came to congratulate him.
He didn’t really care, though. He was alone in a courtyard, and there were two cups of tea in front of him. He looked at the bright moonlight and waited.
Someone appeared on the top of the wall surrounding the courtyard and Elder Li Jian smiled. A cup of tea flew towards that silhouette.
“Young man, make yourself at home. Be my guest,” said Li Jian.
Lin Feng grabbed the cup of tea and landed in front of Li Jian. He smiled calmly and replied, “Thank you very much for the cup of tea, Master.”
“Have a seat. You probably know why I invited you. How is Zi Jian doing? Tell me about him,” Elder Li Jian asked calmly. Even though he didn’t tell Lin Feng he was worried about Patriarch Zi Jian, Lin Feng could see he really cared about him, and hoped he was fine.
Lin Feng told him everything. He had nothing to hide.
Half an hour passed. Lin Feng was finishing telling Elder Li Jian about Patriarch Zi Jian, finishing with the patriarch of the Evil Soul Sect who had nearly killed Zi Jian. Li Jian looked furious while Lin Feng spoke about that. When Lin Feng told him he and Woodcutter had saved Zi Jian, Li Jian looked relieved.
“Thank you, Lin Feng,” said Li Jian.
Lin Feng smiled calmly, then he stood up and bowed hand over fist, “I’m not bothering you any longer, Master. Good evening!” Lin Feng said, leaving quickly. He was worried about his son. In normal circumstances, he wouldn’t have minded spending more time with the old man, chatting and drinking tea, but he wasn’t in the mood.
When Elder Li Jian saw Lin Feng was in a rush, he initially wanted to hold him back, but then he decided not to say anything, since Lin Feng wanted to leave…
That young man seems worried. Is he in trouble?, wondered Elder Li Jian, then shook his head and stopped thinking about that. As long as his disciple was fine, he was relieved. He couldn’t care about everyone.
Lin Feng left and went back to the foot of the Sword Tower but the Elder of Punishments and Meng Qing had already left.
“Lin Feng, the Elder of Punishments knew you’d come back here, he told me to come to pick you up, we have news from Zhe Tian,” said Tian Chi at that moment. Lin Feng was extremely happy when he heard Tian Chi, and they instantly left.
Lin Feng and Tian Chi quickly arrived at a courtyard. They hadn’t even arrived in the courtyard that they could already feel the atmosphere was sad. Lin Feng sighed and jumped into the courtyard.
At that moment, there were a few people standing in the courtyard, Meng Qing was crying and hugging a man.
The man’s Qi was similar to Lin Feng’s. He looked proud in the same way as Lin Feng. Many people were stupefied by the resemblance.
The man was Lin Zhe Tian, but he looked completely dispirited. He had a long beard and smelled like alcohol. He seemed depressed.
When he looked at his mother, he cried, and his eyes were red.
The Mountain Protecting Elder was standing behind Lin Zhe Tian. He looked sad too, and kept sighing. His best disciple had become a mess. He felt powerless and hopeless.
The Elder of Punishments and the Mountain Protecting Elder were there, watching Lin Zhe Tian.
When Lin Feng and Tian Chi appeared in the courtyard, the silence was broken.
Lin Zhe Tian looked at his father. They had finally met again.
When Lin Feng saw his son like that, his heart bled, but at the same time, he was furious. Why was his son acting like thais?
Lin Zhe Tian couldn’t look at his father straight in the eyes, he instantly lowered his head and walked away.
“Where are you going?” shouted Lin Feng, frowning. Lin Zhe Tian’s face paled. He still didn’t dare look at his father.
