“Lin Feng, I don’t want you to leave without benefiting from the most valuable treasure of Shen Hai Mo Lin. If you have balls, go and explore, alright?” said the old man. He wanted to go and explore the World of Battles now. But he wasn’t selfish; he hoped Lin Feng would also find some precious items. He could easily find them himself, but since Lin Feng was his disciple’s disciple, he hoped Lin Feng would find them instead!
Lin Feng didn’t know what the old man meant. What kind of item could be so powerful that the old man talked about it that way? It had to be extremely precious.
“Master, if you’re in a rush and want to leave now, please do. I don’t mind. I don’t need the item…”
“Haha! Don’t worry, young man! I’ve been waiting for hundreds of thousands of years, how could I be in a rush? Young man, tell me straightforwardly, will you dare go or not?” demanded the old man, smiling.
Lin Feng nodded. There was nothing he didn’t dare do. Since he had come to the edge of Shen Hai Mo Lin, he had to find some great items if there was an opportunity. It would be a pity if he didn’t. It would be a step towards his revenge against Jun Hall!
“Master, please tell me what kind of precious item it is,” said Lin Feng. He didn’t feel like wasting any more time.
“Alright, hahaha! Good young man! I’ll tell you then; the precious treasure is invisible and intangible. It’s just a floating fragrance!” the old man burst into laughter. He laughed so loud Lin Feng’s soul nearly dispersed.
When Lin Feng heard him, he felt even more curious. An invisible and intangible fragrance? What kind of precious treasure was that? Where could he smell it?
“Master, what kind of thing is that fragrance?” asked Lin Feng. He didn’t understand.
The old man was so mysterious. He shook his head and smiled, “I can’t tell you.”
“Where is it then?” asked Lin Feng, forcing a smile. But since the old man couldn’t tell him what it was, could he tell him where it was?
“Ten li to the east. It’s at the center of a precious tower. You will find an answer there,” replied the old man, smiling mysteriously.
Lin Feng nodded and got ready to go and look for it, but Zhuang Ling Yun looked panic-stricken. He jumped into Lin Feng’s arms, afraid Lin Feng would leave. He didn’t act as mischievously as usual.
“Son, are you coming with me or staying here?” asked Lin Feng. He didn’t want to force Zhuang Ling Yun to do anything. Since the old man hadn’t killed Zhuang Ling Yun and was his teacher’s teacher, Lin Feng didn’t need to worry.
Zhuang Ling Yun firmly held Lin Feng’s arm and shouted desperately, “I don’t want you to leave me! Woo, woo, woo, woo...!”
“Alright, my little treasure, you can stay with father. We’ll look for the fragrance together,” said Lin Feng sighing and hugging the boy.
“Leave the two women Overlords here. Women can’t go to that place!” the old man warned him as Lin Feng was about to leave. Lin Feng’s expression slightly changed, but he didn’t say anything and left the Ice Spirit and the Fire Spirit behind.
The temperature in the thatched hut suddenly increased when the Fire Spirit appeared. When the Ice Spirit appeared, the temperature became colder. The old man felt like he was burning and freezing at the same time.
If the woman joined hands, the old man couldn’t defeat them. He hadn’t been in the outside world for a long time, and people had started rising already. There were even more women Overlords!
“Master, please take care of my two friends. See you,” said Lin Feng, bowing hand over fist. He turned around and left with Zhuang Ling Yun. They flashed and disappeared.
The old man watched Lin Feng disappear. Then he slowly turned around and looked at the two beautiful women. One looked warm, the other one looked ice-cold. One looked pure. The other one looked seductive.
“So, tell me what the connection between you and Lin Feng is. I’d like to hear about my disciple’s disciple’s past.”
“A fragrance… How can we find it? I have a weird feeling.” Zhuang Ling Yun calmed down when they were away from the old man, but he looked very serious.
“No solution. We have to find it ourselves,” replied Lin Feng, smiling wryly. He sighed helplessly. Since the old man had told him it was a precious treasure, it meant it was an extraordinary thing. It might have extraordinary advantages for someone’s cultivation. Therefore, Lin Feng really hoped he’d find it.
Time passed slowly. Lin Feng continued moving east. It took them three hours to cross a hundred thousand li. Lin Feng couldn’t move too fast, as Zhuang Ling Yun was following him.
After a hundred thousand li, Lin Feng saw a mountain range and a tower on the mountain range in the distance. The mountain wasn’t too big, seventy or eighty thousand meters above sea level. The foot of the mountain was flat fields, and a forest surrounded it.
“It’s the central part. One thousand li around it, there’s a peculiar smell, a sweet fragrance.” Lin Feng sighed helplessly. He could smell something everywhere in the mountain range.
Time passed, and he could make out a thousand and eight hundred different sorts of fragrances. Which one was the fragrance the old man had talked about?
“We have to smell each fragrance one after the other,” said Zhuang Ling Yun, glancing around. Lin Feng nodded. They indeed had no choice.
“Ling Yun, stay behind and follow me,” Lin Feng waved. They continued towards the depths of the mountains, moving extremely slowly. There was a different fragrance everywhere they went.
Lin Feng and Zhuang Ling Yun had no choice but to smell them, one after the other.
Each fragrance was different. Some of them were fresh and light, some of them were heavy and strong. Some of them were extremely faint and vague. But… the old man hadn’t told him what kind of fragrance it was!
Time passed slowly. From noon to evening, Lin Feng and Zhuang Ling Yun looked for the fragrance over a thousand li. They searched every single inch of the place twice. They didn’t find the fragrance Qi.
“Let’s stop, father. The old man probably messed with us,” said Zhuang Ling Yun. He was exhausted and laid down on the grass, panting with anger at the old man.
Lin Feng smiled and walked back to Zhuang Ling Yun. He sat down and rested with him. They had been walking around for an entire day, they deserved a rest. If they didn’t find the fragrance by the next day, they would have no choice but to leave.
“Father, we smelled so many different fragrances, which one could it be?” asked Zhuang Ling Yun, annoyed.
Lin Feng’s eyes gleamed. He suddenly looked at Zhuang Ling Yun sharply. Zhuang Ling Yun seemed startled and scared.
“What’s wrong, father?” asked Zhuang Ling Yun, putting his hand in front of him, ready to push Lin Feng back. What was wrong with Lin Feng?
“Son, I think I know where the source of the fragrance is,” Lin Feng grinned. He initially felt dispirited, but now he had hope again.
“Really?” asked Zhuang Ling Yun, sitting up. His eyes gleamed.
“I remember the old man said it was a floating fragrance, which means it floats around. It means it exists in the air. Little boy, we forgot one thing. A floating smell? That’s the smell of air!” said Lin Feng, smiling broadly. If he wasn’t mistaken, he needed to break the fragrance into subparts, because that was how humans perceived smells!
Then, he would be able to analyze every single molecule! That was what he had to do to find the precious treasure the old man had told him about!
“Haha! Since it’s that way, father, let’s go and find it!” exclaimed Zhuang Ling Yun excitedly. He shot up like a monkey jumping to his feet.
“Yes, do you remember the different threads of smells we found?”
“Yes, father, I remember almost all of them,” said Zhuang Ling Yun. He didn’t know why Lin Feng asked that, but he nodded confidently.
“Good. Let’s rise up in the air and divide all the smells. Once we isolate the floating fragrance, we’ll find it,” said Lin Feng, his eyes flashing.
Zhuang Ling Yun followed him into the sky. Two godly auras started twinkling in the air.
Time passed slowly. Lin Feng and Zhuang Ling Yun were in midair and isolating every single thread of fragrance. In the end, there were three sorts of fragrance left.
They were different, but they didn’t come from things. They came from mountains or rivers. The atmosphere around the three sorts of fragrance Qi had turned into void.
“Father, how do we differentiate them?”
