“Awesome to have a younger brother! Haha!” said Godly Ancestor Xing Yun. He was excited and happy. He didn’t look majestic and imposing as he had originally. He was unrecognizable.
“Lin Feng!” Since Lin Feng had accepted, he had to tell him his name.
“Alright, brother. There’s no time to lose. Should we become sworn brothers right now?” asked Godly Ancestor Xing Yun happily. Lin Feng needed to agree officially before they started the ritual.
Lin Feng looked at him and shook his head while smiling calmly. “Brother, being sworn brothers is something you feel in your heart. You think a stupid ritual is useful if the two people really consider each other as sworn brothers?
“Otherwise, saying we are like sworn brothers is useless. It’s a matter of trust. Saying we’re sworn brothers is useless if we don’t trust each other.
“Therefore, brother, let’s not have a ceremony or a ritual, we don’t need such things,” said Lin Feng gravely, frowning seriously. If Godly Ancestor Xing Yun still wanted to be sworn brothers with Lin Feng after hearing that, then Lin Feng would be satisfied.
When Godly Ancestor Xing Yun heard that, he looked grave and serious, but very quickly, he looked relieved. He actually thought Lin Feng was right. If they were really sworn brothers, they didn’t need a ceremony or a ritual.
“Alright, we don’t need fake and stupid rituals to be brothers,” Godly Ancestor Xing Yun nodded approvingly.
“Brother, you can take a rest. I’m going to announce your new official position to the students. What do you think of vice director?”
“Since we’re brothers, I don’t need a status. If I can help now and then, that’s already enough.”
“No, we need to abide by some rules. You helped the university get qualified today, it was a great success. You should have a high status, like vice director.”
“But, you need to be kind to the Great Supreme Gods of the university. They are proud and ambitious,” said Godly Ancestor Xing Yun.
Lin Feng didn’t listen carefully because he didn’t care. Apart from Godly Ancestor Xing Yun, nobody could pose a threat to him in this university, so there was no need to worry.
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun left the palace, leaving Lin Feng alone. He almost felt ashamed to have such a huge palace to himself.
“Lin Feng, I’m going to break through to the next cultivation layer, I need peace and calm in your spirit world. Don’t let anyone disturb me for a few days. Meng Qing already has the strength of the third Great Supreme God layer. She’s my first ice general. If I break through, she will also become stronger. That was your request,” the Ice Spirit spoke up suddenly. She sounded worried. She was about to break through, which could be dangerous. She had to be very focused for the attempt.
Also, if Lin Feng had a question, now was the right time to ask.
“Ice Spirit, right before we left the Country of Eternity to come to the World of Battles, you said you would break through within six months, and now…?” said Lin Feng.
The Ice Spirit didn’t waste too much time talking and simply said, “Time and space are distorted in the tunnel. A hundred years inside are like a few days outside. Otherwise, why wouldn’t have your wives have given birth already?” explained the Ice Spirit, as her ice Qi disappeared. Lin Feng sealed a part of his spirit world for the Ice Spirit’s safety and also to make sure that her energies would not influence the rest of his spirit world during the process.
The Ice Spirit was going to break through to the Godly Ancestor layer. She would become as strong as the Fire Spirit. Lin Feng had already seen how strong the Fire Spirit was, so he was convinced the Ice Spirit would also become extraordinarily strong.
Lin Feng knew he had to be very vigilant though because if she really broke through, then he would have to pay attention. He might have to release energies to protect his relatives because the Ice Spirit’s energies could become extremely powerful and spread out suddenly.
There weren’t many stars that night, and it was cold. Lin Feng’s robe fluttered in the wind. He was standing at the top of the great palace and looking at the torches in the university town. A pale golden halo covered their territory. There were still many students cultivating and sparring on the kwoons of the university. There were also explosions now and then. It was fun to watch.
That afternoon, Godly Ancestor Xing Yun had announced that Lin Feng was now the vice director of the university, and that Lin Feng and he were now sworn brothers. Lin Feng had thus become the students’ second teacher’s teacher. Most students could understand, as Lin Feng had helped them get qualified, after all.
Obtaining privileges was something natural for such great actions. The students were still surprised that Lin Feng and the Godly Ancestor had become sworn brothers, however. That meant that from now on, Lin Feng was like their Ancestor and they would have to kneel down in front of him.
Many disciples couldn’t accept that. Some of them even felt humiliated, especially the young geniuses the university had raised. They had the strength of the fifth Great Supreme God layer and were public figures in the university.
Nobody knew what it was like outside of the university, but those young geniuses were proud and not happy that Lin Feng had become their vice director.
Yu Men Jie was one of them. He was the angriest about Lin Feng having become the vice director. He was the strongest of all disciples of his generation and Godly Ancestor Xing Yun was his teacher. He was supposed to become vice director and after Godly Ancestor Xing Yun’s retirement, he was supposed to become the new director.
Now Lin Feng had shown up and had stolen the spotlight from him, as well as his vice director position. He was extremely angry. He went straight to Godly Ancestor Xing Yun to ask him to remove Lin Feng’s vice director status. Godly Ancestor Xing Yun was furious, and had warned Yu Men Jie and told him not to offend Lin Feng.
But Yu Men Jie didn’t care about those things. He was supposed to participate in the exam for the Competition as well, but Lin Feng had stolen the spotlight from him so he hadn’t had the opportunity to display his strength. He still had to participate in the Competition, though.
Yu Men Jie!
At this moment, Yu Men Jie was holding a heavy sword and he looked fierce and overbearing. He flew towards the great palace. He couldn’t go inside, but he didn’t care. He just wanted to see how strong Lin Feng was and why he had stolen the spotlight away.
His teacher and Lin Feng had become sworn brothers. Did his teacher think he was going to call Lin Feng Uncle or what? Pooh! Make me call Lin Feng “Uncle”? Over my dead body!, he thought.
Yu Men Jie was growing angrier. He didn’t know how strong Lin Feng was. If Lin Feng knew what Yu Men Jie was thinking, he would burst into laughter because he had never asked anyone to call him Uncle. It was a ridiculous idea.
Lin Feng stood at the top of the great palace. He looked at the torches illuminating the city one last time and then turned around, about to go and take a rest in his room.
Suddenly, he heard sword Qi whistling. Sharp sword Qi was shooting towards him from behind. He had to react quickly.
Lin Feng had already gone through similar things hundreds of times in his life. He was used to surprise attacks. Even though the sword Qi was moving quite quickly, that cultivator wasn’t strong enough, so his chance of success was really low.
Lin Feng condensed Genesis Spiritual strength and used a palm strike. His energies held hundreds of millions of jin of force.
Bam! Lin Feng slapped Yu Men Jie’s hands. Yu Men Jie’s expression suddenly changed. He clenched his fists and punched Lin Feng’s palm, but Lin Feng pressed with brute force and boom! Yu Men Jie was blown away and crashed to the ground hundreds of meters away. He slowly got back on his feet.
Lin Feng glanced at him. That young man wasn’t too weak. He was wearing a blue robe and looked like a wealthy and high-ranking prince, but why had he attacked Lin Feng by surprise at night?
“I’m sure I can defeat you!” shouted Yu Men Jie in challenge. His Qi was so cold that the atmosphere around him started freezing. Lin Feng was surprised.
“Brother, we are not enemies, why attack me by surprise?” asked Lin Feng. He wasn’t angry, but he wanted to understand what was going on. Why had this handsome young man attacked him by surprise?
Yu Men Jie didn’t feel like talking. He threw another punch and charged Lin Feng. Lin Feng looked at his fists, he didn’t throw a punch. He just released energies at a third of his true power.
He was worried he would kill the man if he used his full strength!
Bam! Bam! Lin Feng and the man’s hands collided. A terrifying strength erupted around them. Godly Ancestor Xing Yun was about to go to bed. When he heard that, he was startled and flew out to investigate.
Lin Feng was pushed back half a step while Yu Men Jie was pushed back several steps. Yu Men Jie looked proud and cold as he smiled mockingly, “Lin Feng? You’re pretty weak for an Uncle! Why would you be qualified to be vice director?”
