“You let him escape? The vice town’s Great Leader and two Godly Ancestors weren’t enough to catch the culprit?”
In the great hall of the palace, the atmosphere was heavy and tense.
Jing Rui was seated there. His cup of tea was broken into a thousand pieces and lying on the ground. In two days, two people had been assassinated, and the murder had killed them using the same methods.
He was overwhelmed; the auctions, the murders, Godly Ancestor Zhan Ling, Godly Ancestor Jie Long… both were Godly Ancestors and they had been killed in Jing City.
Godly Ancestor Zhan Ling had been decapitated. Godly Ancestor Jie Long’s body had disappeared, the killer had taken it with him.
If Jing City didn’t find the murderer, the World Dragon Clan and the Spiritual Warriors Clan wouldn’t forgive them!
Jing City had a headache. The leader of the Spiritual Warriors Clan and the young genius Jie Qing Tian from the World Dragon Clan were both overlords. One of them was forty-eighth, not that much different from him, and the other one was thirty-seventh. If Jing Rui didn’t solve the issue, he would be in trouble.
The culprit had disappeared. The owner of the inn had seen a man with a plaited bamboo hat and a black cloak enter the establishment, but many people dressed like that everyday. It was clearly a disguise.
The only thing which drew his attention was that that cultivator was holding a mala, which meant he was a Buddhist cultivator. That was extremely serious, because nobody dared offend the Buddhist Ancestor of the West. If anyone offended him, he could easily destroy Jing City!
The Buddhist Ancestor of the West belonged to the same category of people as Jing Rui’s teacher, Ancestor Nü. He had even more experience than Ancestor Nü. Even Ancestor Nü treated him with respect.
Jing Rui had a headache. He didn’t sleep at all that night. Who dared cause trouble here? Who dared kill Godly Ancestors in his territory?
At the same time, he was thoughtfully. Who hated Godly Ancestor Zhan Ling and Godly Ancestor Jie Long that much? It didn’t take long to think of someone: Lin Feng!
“Is it him?” wondered Jing Rui. He seemed confused. If it was Lin Feng, he wouldn’t be surprised. Everybody knew about the ambush, after all.
He remembered he had given his beloved Godly Battle Sword to Lin Feng. He couldn’t use it, it was inconsistent with his personality, so he had decided to give it to that champion.
Lin Feng! Oh, Lin Feng! Don’t wait until it’s too late! The World Dragon Clan and the Spiritual Warriors Clan are not people of small importance. You offended them so now you’ll have to be extremely careful…
“It’s an order! If you see any suspicious-looking man, capture him and send him to prison,” said Jing Rui somberly.
The vice town’s Great Leader and the two Godly Ancestors didn’t dare waste time.
The atmosphere was extremely strange in Jing City that night.
Lin Feng had already gotten rid of his cloak and plaited bamboo hat. He had put his Asura mask and clothes back on and was in his room.
Lin Feng heard the door open suddenly, and Qian Jin Cai Yue entered his room furiously. She was holding a sword. With a flick, she put the tip of her sword on Lin Feng’s neck.
Lin Feng had already anticipated this situation, but he was still angry.
“Where did you go this afternoon? Speak!” demanded Qian Jin Cai Yue. She didn’t feel like wasting time.
Lin Feng smiled coolly. He stretched out his hand and pushed her sword away. “Miss Cai Yue, do I need to tell you where I go each time I move?”
“Asura, I’m going to ask my question one more time! Where did you go?” Qian Jin Cai Yue demanded. She had the feeling there was something wrong about Asura, especially when Godly Ancestor Ju Ying had stopped her.
Asura had left, and the leader of World Dragon University had been killed. What had happened?
She hated the World Dragon Clan and the Spiritual Warriors Clan because of what they had done to Lin Feng, but what did that have to do with Asura? Why would Asura kill them? Why would he kill them?
She needed an explanation to understand what was going on.
“No comment, Miss Cai Yue. I am giving Ni Huang face by accepting your presence at my side. We barely know each other and you’re going too far!” Lin Feng replied icily. He suddenly felt helpless. He couldn’t even tell her the truth.
“Asura, did you kill Godly Ancestor Zhan Ling and Godly Ancestor Jie Long?” Qian Jin Cai Yue inquired bluntly. Lin Feng was covered in cold sweat suddenly.
“What does that have to do with you?” he deflected, raising his head.
“It has to do with Lin Feng! Godly Ancestor Zhan Ling and Godly Ancestor Jie Long were his enemies,” Qian Jin Cai Yue replied firmly.
“What does that have to do with me?” Lin Feng said icily.
“You’re weaker than Lin Feng. You can’t kill people Lin Feng wants to kill. You’re not qualified!” Qian Jin Cai Yue sneered, not giving him any face.
If Asura hadn’t been Lin Feng, he would have felt extremely humiliated. Instead, Lin Feng wanted to smile, but he controlled himself. He even pretended and looked at Cai Yue angrily.
“You better not compare me to Lin Feng. I don’t know him and I don’t want to know him.”
“You’re not qualified to meet him.”
“Believe it or not, if I saw him, I could easily kill him.”
“Try and dare!” snarled Qian Jin Cai Yue furiously. She raised her sword again and slashed at Lin Feng’s neck. She didn’t intend to be merciful. She wanted to kill Asura!
“Stop!” shouted Qing Huang Tian, suddenly appearing next to Lin Feng. She slapped the sword far away and then continued moving, slapping Qian Jin Cai Yue in the face.
Song Chou Jiu, Hu Shan and Ming Shou all rushed over to Lin Feng’s room. When they saw what was happening, their expressions changed humorously.
“You are…?” Song Chou Jiu was speechless. Why were the two women arguing? Was it because of Asura?
“Brother Song. I’m alright. Let’s not make a mountain out of a molehill,” Lin Feng said, smiling and holding Qing Huang Tian’s hand. He couldn’t do anything about this, after all.
Qian Jin Cai Yue was doing all this for Lin Feng, and Qing Huang Tian was doing all this for Asura! Since they were doing this for him, he couldn’t let them fight.
Qian Jin Cai Yue wiped the blood off her mouth and glared at Qing Huang Tian icily. She glanced at Asura, put her sword away and left the room.
She felt extremely sad. How would Lin Feng have reacted if he had seen her fail like that?
She started to cry. If Ni Huang saw that, she would be furious, and might even feel like killing Qing Huang Tian. Even though she had decided her daught would get married, it didn’t mean she didn’t love her.
She considered Cai Yue her treasure. A mere phoenix with five feathers couldn’t measure up to Ni Huang’s daughter!
But nobody was there for Qian Jin Cai Yue. She was alone and had no choice but to suffer in silence.
Back in the room, the atmosphere was a bit awkward. Song Chou Jiu remained silent and his legs felt weak. He didn’t know why he had come, but he was there now…
“Miss Qing, please don’t fight. If there are tensions, communicate to solve them,” he managed to say, but Qing Huang Tian ignored him. She was just worried about Lin Feng.
She shooed Song Chou Jiu away. He didn’t get angry, simply blushing and leaving.
Hu Shan and Ming Shou looked at Lin Feng, but left with Song Chou Jiu.
The atmosphere in the room finally calmed dwon.
“Hus… Husband, what happened between you and her?” asked Qing Huang Tian when they were alone. She always wanted to call Asura “husband”, but felt shy when there were other people around.
Lin Feng shook his head. He didn’t pay attention to what she called him.
“It’s alright. It’s a small misunderstanding,” Lin Feng reply smoothly.
Qing Huang Tian was happy inside. Even though she was pure and innocent, it didn’t mean she wasn’t ready to love. Qian Jin Cai Yue had been forced to marry Asura by Ni Huang. But if tensions continued arising between Qian Jin Cai Yue and Asura, then Qing Huang Tian was happy.
She didn’t want to share her lover with other women. She was pure and noble. She couldn’t accept such a thing.
If Lin Feng and Qian Jin Cai Yue argued, it was a good thing. She would be happy about it, but of course she wouldn’t dare say that to Lin Feng.
She knew what she felt, and that was enough. She almost giggled gleefully thinking about it.
Lin Feng sighed. If it weren’t for Godly Ancestor Tu Jin, he wouldn’t need to pretend to be Asura. He would have killed Godly Ancestor Zhan Ling and Godly Ancestor Jie Long as Lin Feng as well.
Unfortunately, he had no choice.
Qian Jin Cai Yue was going to suffer a lot during this time.
“I’m going out,” Lin Feng said. He didn’t know what to do, and there was nothing to do because all the woman had in mind was Lin Feng. She was so different from when he had met her for the first time!
Qing Huang Tian stayed behind calmly as he left. She also understood it when it wasn’t the right time to follow a man. Sometimes, a man needed to be alone.
Damn! Why am I thinking too much?!
Suddenly, Qing Huang Tian realized she was changing. She wasn’t just a woman anymore, she was now a wife too! She felt like a wife!
It made her blush!
