Lin Feng was surprised. Zhuang Ling Yun was shaking as he whispered, “So they’re here? We can’t escape anymore. The next leader of the hall has to be chosen!”
“What? Leader Lin, is there any other issue in the Region of the Eight Corners?” asked the man in purple clothes. He looked confident. He had investigated before coming. Lin Feng had met the vice leader of the Alliance of the Young Geniuses of the World of Battles, Fu Dao, and he had also survived the ambush by the strong cultivators of the Spiritual Warriors Clan and World Dragon Clan. Thanks to Lin Feng, the situation in the Region of the Eight Corners had also calmed down.
Now was the best time to go to Jun Hall. That’s why he chose this moment to come and invite Lin Feng over. It was a sign of respect for Lin Feng and the Region of the Eight Corners.
“I need to sort some things out before leaving. Otherwise, how could I feel reassured?” asked Lin Feng, smiling calmly. He didn’t seem perturbed at all, so the man in purple clothes was disappointed. As expected, Lin Feng was just a Spiritual Godly Ancestor, but he had the temperament of an Overlord.
“Alright, I’ll wait for you. We’ll go back to the Jun Hall together,” the man in purple clothes smiled. He didn’t seem to be in a rush. As long as they went back within a week, everything was fine.
“Alright, come to the main hall to have some tea, then,” Lin Feng said, leading the way for those people.
Zhuang Ling Yun nodded and followed the man in purple clothes. He smiled and said, “Third Uncle, come with me.”
“You’ve become a lot more mature during your stay at the Region of the Eight Corners,” said the man in purple clothes, patting Zhuang Ling Yun’s head gently. He followed Zhuang Ling Yun to the main hall.
Lin Feng was in the back so that he could watch everything. He wondered what Jun Hall wanted now. They wanted him to come to the Jun Hall, but he didn’t even know why…? It probably had something to do with the Leader’s successor. Zhuang Ling Yun had told Lin Feng about it. Zhuang Ling Yun had a brother, Zhuang Ling Xiao, and the latter also wanted to be the next Leader of the Jun Hall.
Zhuang Ling Xiao was backed up by the Xiao Hun Hall. Lin Feng knew what kind of group the Xiao Hun Hall was. It was an Overlord group in the World of Battles. Leader Xiao Hun wasn’t very high in the Overlord ranking list, but he was still very strong.
When they arrived in the main hall, Chu Chun Qiu, Lin Zhe Tian and the others had left, so they didn’t bump into each other, and even if they had, so what? It wouldn’t have mattered. They didn’t even know each other. The only thing would be that Jun Hall would know Lin Feng had many children.
“Alright, we’ll leave later then,” Lin Feng said after personally pouring some tea in the man’s cup. He left the room and headed for Song Chou Jiu’s room.
Song Chou Jiu was the manager of the Region of the Eight Corners, so he knew why Lin Feng was there. Some disciples had reported to him that some people from the Jun Hall were there, and the third Leader on top of that, an Earthly Godly Ancestor.
“Brother Song, the Region of the Eight Corners is yours for now. If anything happens, call the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points. If nothing important happens, or if the Spiritual Warriors Clan, the World Dragon Clan, the Alliance of the Young Geniuses of the World of Battles or others provoke the Region of the Eight Corners, then just wait for me to come back and ignore them for the time being,” Lin Feng said seriously. Song Chou Jiu nodded.
“Don’t worry. Nothing will happen before you come back,” Song Chou Jiu said to Lin Feng, but he sounded strange. Before Lin Feng came back? What did that mean, that something was going to happen after his return?
Lin Feng smiled wryly, but remained silent. He left Song Chou Jiu’s room and went to see Chu Chun Qiu and the others. Lin Zhe Tian and Lin Qiong Sheng were on their way to Zhan Gan and Zhan Han’s residence.
“Chun Qiu and Old Ghost, take care of Lin Heng, Sheng Jiong, and Sheng Xie. I need to go to the Jun Hall. I may not come back for a while,” Lin Feng said. He wasn’t reassured leaving his kids with other people, but Chu Chun Qiu, his old enemy, was still the person he trusted the most to take care of them. Chu Chun Qiu was fair to Lin Feng, and they had become good friends, like brothers. Chu Chun Qiu wouldn’t hurt Lin Feng.
“Don’t worry, I’ll teach your children good lessons. They won’t be lazy with me,” said Chu Chun Qiu, smiling icily and glancing at Lin Heng and the others. The three children had a bad feeling.
“Father, is he going to hurt us?” Lin Heng pouted, but Lin Feng ignored him. Lin Feng didn’t mind if Chu Chun Qiu taught them some good lessons. They needed to grow up.
The Region of the Eight Corners wasn’t a playground. They had to practice cultivation hard and go through hardships to understand life. Lin Feng didn’t want them to become spoiled brats.
“You stinky little kids, he’s your teacher from now on. You need to learn from him. If you make mistakes and act mischievously, I won’t blame him if he crushes you. You understand?” Lin Feng said angrily. He didn’t want his children to become like stupid rich kids.
Lin Heng pouted, but remained silent. They couldn’t contradict their father.
Lin Feng looked away and stretched out his hands. Lin Zu also stretched out his little hands. They touched each other’s hands. It was the first time.
“I’m taking Lin Zu to the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points,” Lin Feng said. Chu Chun Qiu and the others knew why. Chu Chun Qiu looked at Lin Zu in admiration and envy. His old enemy had changed a lot; he now had children, and they were also extremely strong. Chu Chun Qiu hadn’t done anything like that.
Maybe he needed children too? Or even many descendants? He wasn’t strong enough alone. Lin Feng had so many children and within a few dozen or hundred years, the Lin Clan would become extremely powerful.
It was difficult to imagine, but they might even have several Overlords!
He needed to create the Chu Clan. Someday, the Lin Clan and the Chu Clan would be extremely powerful. He couldn’t wait for their two clans to rule over the World of Battles!
Half an hour later, Lin Feng and Lin Zu arrived at their destination. The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points wasn’t in the central part of Man Yu. He was eight thousand li away at the top of a small mountain, in a small and serene courtyard.
Even though it was far away, the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points could see Man Yu clearly. If anything happened in Man Yu or in the Region of the Eight Corners in general, he would be able to intervene extremely quickly.
Lin Feng brought Lin Zu to the foot of the mountain and stopped. He let go of Lin Zu’s hand and said, “Little Zu, the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points is at the top of the mountain, he’s an Overlord.”
“Yes, I know, I felt it. He’s so strong,” said Lin Zu in admiration. It was the first time Lin Feng had seen such an expression on the child’s face.
“To get to the top, you need to take a step and then kowtow, take a step and then kowtow, and so on, until you reach the top,” Lin Feng said.
Even if Lin Zu was his child, he had to respect the rules. He had to show good faith to the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points.
Lin Zu didn’t ask anything. He didn’t like wasting time talking either, like his father. So he immediately knelt down and kowtowed, then he took a step, and kowtowed again.
It took Lin Zu two hours to reach the top of the mountain.
When he arrived at the top of the mountain, his entire body was sore. It was because of the energies of the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points. Lin Zu had to submit. Even if he was the future Human Ancestor, he wasn’t there yet. He was just Lin Zu, an ordinary child.
“Lin Feng, go back,” said the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points in a deep voice. Lin Feng nodded gravely, turned around and left without sparing a glance for his son.
“Lin Zu, stay there on your knees for three days. In three days, come inside the house!”
As Lin Feng left, he heard the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points’ cold voice. He wanted to test Lin Zu. If Lin Zu managed to wait for three consecutive days, it’d mean he was persevering.
Lin Zu wasn’t happy. He was a child, after all. But even if he wasn’t happy, he didn’t intend to fail the test!
Lin Feng disappeared and quickly reappeared in the central part of Man Yu. The third uncle of the Jun Hall was still with the two elders, waiting.
“Let’s go, Master,” Lin Feng said to the man in purple clothes. The man didn’t say anything. He just flashed away with Zhuang Ling Yun in his arms. The two Holy Godly Ancestors followed behind him.
“Ling Yun is yours,” said the man in purple clothes, handing Zhuang Ling Yun over to Lin Feng. Lin Feng took the child in his arms and disappeared. The man in purple clothes and the two others followed. They all traveled towards Shen Hai Mo Lin. Shen Hai Mo Lin wasn’t far from Man Yu. One day sufficed at Lin Feng’s speed.
“My third uncle is called Zhuang Chong Yuan, my second uncle is called Zhuang Chong Quan, and my father is called Zhuang Chong Huan. My second and third uncles also have children who want to become Leaders, so you have to be careful during our stay at the Jun Hall this time, father,” said Zhuang Ling Yun with the greatest care.
“Don’t worry. I feel confident that you will become the Leader this time,” Lin Feng said smiling confidently.
Zhuang Ling Yun was confused. What did his father mean? Why was he so confident? “Father, you have trump cards?”
“No, you have trump cards.”
“Me? What trump cards?” Zhuang Ling Yun was astonished. What did his father mean? He was just an adopted son. He had no trump cards, if Lin Feng abandoned him, he would be all alone in the world.
It was thanks to Lin Feng that he could participate in the selection for the Overlords of the lower world.
“Your father is your trump card! Haha!” Lin Feng replied, bursting into laughter. Zhuang Ling Yun was speechless, but at the same time he was touched and moved. He loved his father!
