“Gan Yu won and is qualified for the next round. Ye Yu is eliminated.”
“Next round. Xue Yu versus… Li Yu!” shouted Gan Wu Dao with a smile. He was pleased with their victory and also because he couldn’t wait to see Li Chen and Xue Can Yun argue more.
Every year, one of the two territories ranked first. Unfortunately, this year, things had changed drastically. Li Yu and Xue Yu were fighting in that second round so one of them would be eliminated and would lose all their chances to finish in the top four. At best, they could rank fifth!
The two representatives were furious because of that unexpected and unpleasant situation. But what could they do? Six territories had agreed with the rules. If they said anything now, everybody would be annoyed.
After the competition, they would have to show the others nobody could underestimate them; nobody really knew how strong they could be. Even if they ranked fifth, nobody would dare make fun of them. They had just been unlucky this time!
Everybody waited for their Great Supreme Gods to reach the center of the battle area. Who would fight whom this time? How splendid would their battle be? The fight between Li Dian and Xue Yi Dao had ended up in a draw. They had nearly destroyed Feng Xun Valley during it! But this time, such a thing was impossible. Indeed, it was impossible for Great Supreme Gods. They weren’t strong enough.
Of course, Lin Feng was an exception among Great Supreme Gods. Lin Feng was more terrifying than at least two ordinary Godly Ancestors together!
Lin Feng was calm at that moment and waiting for the next duel to start. He had to admit that some of the fights were dazzling. No matter who won, that fight would be remembered throughout history.
Everybody looked excited. Gan Wu Dao looked eager, but he also smiled mockingly. He cared more than anyone about who was going to win. If Li Yu won, then Gan Wu Dao would have even more chances of ranking first. If Xue Yu won, all their chances of ranking first would collapse.
He thought that Xue Yu was stronger than Li Yu. Of course, Li Yu was strong, but they had fewer trump cards than Xue Yu.
Lin Feng looked at the fighters. The disciple of Li Yu had the strength of the top of the Great Supreme God layer; his name was Li Qiu. Lin Feng knew that little boy was strong and talented at first glance. It even seemed like he was suppressing his own cultivation level. He could break through to the Godly Ancestor layer, but he didn’t because he wouldn’t have been able to fight in the Great Supreme God category.
The disciple Xue Yu sent was called Xue Gang. He was also a cultivator of the top of the Great Supreme God layer. Of course, he was also about to break through to the Godly Ancestor layer, but he had also restrained his cultivation level.
After this fight, he might have to fight against one of them so he had to observe and study them.
“Lin Feng, listen to me. Leave and come to see me!” a familiar voice whispered suddenly.
Lin Feng was astonished. Godly Ancestor Tu Jin?
He raised his head and glanced around. He saw the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points in the crowd. He was wearing a plaited bamboo hat and bent over. One couldn’t see that he had the strength of the Earthly Godly Ancestor layer.
Ancestors of the Five Cardinal Points were even rarer than overlords in Feng Xun Valley!
Lin Feng nodded at him, and spoke to Shi Yu telepathically. She nodded. Lin Feng slowly stood up, but didn’t leave the stage immediately. He first walked to the edge of the battle arena. Li Qiu and Xue Gang’s battle drew everybody’s attention.
Gan Wu Dao, Xue Can Yun, and Li Chen were all focused. The two fighters’ Qi was incredible and swirled thickly in the air.
Lin Feng had no time to watch though. As everybody watched them fight, Lin Feng slowly flashed off the edge of the battle arena, going into the crowd.
He heard a powerful shout behind him and the collision of fists and feet. Pure Qi exploded. At that moment, Lin Feng knew it was starting.
“Master.” Lin Feng greeted the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points respectfully. However, the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points didn’t say anything, he just grabbed Lin Feng’s hand and they disappeared from Feng Xun Valley.
They reappeared in an inn in Gan Yu. There were many people in that room, and Lin Feng knew some of them.
When he saw them, he was astonished. What was the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points trying to do?
Jing Rui was there, seated at a table next to a window. When he saw Lin Feng and the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points, he smiled,
“Asura, greetings to Leader Jing Rui!”
“Greetings to Leader Jing Rui!”
“Asura, greetings to the Yi Clan’s leader!”
“Uhhh, greetings Masters!” Lin Feng spoke up, looking at the leader of the Yi Clan. Lin Feng had to greet these people. They were all overlords!
Even though Lin Feng had never heard of the Yi Clan, the leader of the Yi Clan was an Earthly Godly Ancestor. In comparison to an Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points, he was ridiculously weak, as was Leader Jing Rui. The latter was much, much weaker than an Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points!
There were differences between overlords and Earthly Godly Ancestors, as expected…
But in any case, there were also other crucial elements in determining someone’s overall strength. How strong were they? How good were they at defense?
“Alright, so let’s put it this way, Asura. When we know who the champion of the Region of the Eight Corners is, we’ll stir up trouble. The representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners will panic and disperse. Then when the chaos calms down, you will come into play and make the region unstable again, right after the first wave of chaos,” the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points informed him bluntly.
Lin Feng was astonished, and stared at the old man blankly. What did that mean? Why did he want to cause chaos in the Region of the Eight Corners?
Lin Feng didn’t have much time to think, the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points immediately spoke again.
“After that, listen to Leader Jing Rui,” said the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points, pointing to Jing Rui seriously.
Lin Feng glanced at Jing Rui again.
He had to understand the situation. Otherwise, why would he agree to do everything according to their plan? He wasn’t a puppet or a piece on a chessboard.
“You better tell me the purpose of all this,” Lin Feng declared with a smile. He sounded vigilant and serious, and the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points knew how he felt.
The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points knew that Lin Feng had to understand everything before agreeing, but it didn’t matter. He said to Jing Rui and the leader of the Yi Clan, “You two, get ready to leave.”
“Alright. Don’t worry, Master.” Jing Rui nodded and looked out of the window. The leader of the Yi Clan looked at Lin Feng meaningfully, but remained silent as he left the room.
After the two people left, the servants also left. Only Lin Feng and the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points remained in the room. They both looked out of the window and remained silent.
“Master, I want to know the purpose,” Lin Feng frowned. He had to understand. Why would he cause unreast in the Region of the Eight Corners?
Even though he didn’t know what kind of clan the Yi Clan was, since their leader was so powerful, they were probably powerful. They couldn’t be much weaker than Jing City.
The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points smiled thinly. He knew Lin Feng would insist, or he wouldn’t agree to do anything. But it didn’t matter, it was even better to talk about it. He was convinced Lin Feng would support him after hearing about the plan.
“Lin Feng, you know the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting, right?” the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points smiled.
“Yes, I do. One of the precious items from the auctions, but nobody was interested in it,” Lin Feng nodded. Now he knew it had something to do with the plot.
“You know the three precious treasures of Jing City’s auctions?”
“What three precious treasures?”
“The Dazzling Flower, the Three Heavy Waves, and the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting!” the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points grinned. Lin Feng found himself regretting now.
If he had known, he could have bought it for a few hundred millions godly coins.
The Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting was as precious as the Dazzling Flower. He had noticed the space and time Qi of the painting was different and unusual, as if there were another distinct world inside of it.
“What is the secret of the Bright and Colorful Mountain and Lakes painting, and what does it have to do with the plot?” asked Lin Feng excitedly.
“Did you see the pavilion in painting? Three old men were seated there. They had different clothing styles. A rich and noble man, a beggar, and a free and unrestrained Taoist priest.”
“Yes, I remember them. Who are they?”
“They are the Leader of the Yi Clan, Leader Jing Rui’s father, and me!”
