“Since it’s that way, fellow disciple, you can live with our teacher,” Lin Feng said when he saw the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points feeling awkward. Lin Feng had never thought he’d ever be his fellow disciple!
The Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points smiled quietly, but what could he do? He had no choice but to listen to his teacher’s orders!
“Master Ancestor of the Tower, you can choose the place where you want to live,” Lin Feng said. One mountain range for three overlords was too small, so the Ancestor of the Tower should choose another place to live.
The Ancestor of the Tower understood that this mountain range was for the old man and his disciple. He was a stranger to them, so he had to go elsewhere. Lin Feng had invited him, so he couldn’t ask for too much.
“I can lower my strength to the Holy Godly Ancestor layer and follow you,” said the Ancestor of the Tower with a chortle. He didn’t need to hide all the time, as he could also hide his real strength. Nobody would recognize him. Only overlords would be able to see that he had the strength of an overlord.
The four Ancestors would also be able to see he was an overlord. As for the overlords of the List of the World of Battles, they would not be able to see he was an overlord!
“Alright,” Lin Feng agreed, not wasting any time. The Ancestor of the Tower lowered his visible cultivation level, and they left for the central part of Man Yu.
Lin Zu was left behind. When Lin Feng had told the old man Lin Zu was his son, he had just smiled in approval.
The old man could see that Lin Zu was incredibly talented. He was only four or five, and he had the strength of the first Great Supreme God layer already! Wouldn’t he become the youngest Godly Ancestor in the history of the World of Battles as well?
Neither the old man nor the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points could predict how fast the child was going to grow, but they were both certain he would become a terrifyingly strong cultivator, so they decided to spend all their time and energy on raising him while they had time.
Two overlords to take care of one? Not many people were that lucky in the World of Battles! Lin Feng had prepared a perfect environment for his women, but he still had lots of things to do!
Lin Feng returned half an hour after he left, but this time he was with the Ancestor of the Tower. The latter was wearing a golden robe and his hair looked messy, which made him look like a tramp. When people first saw him, they frowned, but when they realized his cultivation level, they were stupefied and regarded him with respect and admiration.
No matter what, when someone was extremely strong, even if they wore dirty old clothes, people still admired them!
Lin Feng and the Ancestor of the Tower went to the great palace for meetings. There were many people inside already. All the strongest cultivators of the Region of the Eight Corners were there waiting for Lin Feng.
When Lin Feng showed up, he was followed by an old man in dirty old clothes. The crowd was astonished at first, but when they saw he had the strength of the Holy Godly Ancestor layer, they couldn’t help but look at him respectfully.
At that moment, Song Chou Jiu, Li Ju, Ta Han Yuan, Chu Chun Qiu, Prince Ghost, Lin Sheng Jiong, Lin Heng and many other people shouted greetings.
Meng Qing was in the crowd, too, looking pure and noble. People didn’t dare get too close to her, so she had space around her. She had just broken through to the Holy Godly Ancestor layer, but Li Ju was convinced that if she used her full strength, she would defeat him. He was amazed; their leader’s wife was also extremely strong!
Lin Feng walked through the crowd and sat down on his throne. He glanced at Meng Qing, then he turned his head and nodded calmly, “Sit down, everybody!”
“Please sit down, Master,” Lin Feng said to the Ancestor of the Tower. Everybody was astonished when the Ancestor of the Tower sat down, because he sat down on the throne which was usually for the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points!
Lin Feng had an old man who looked like a tramp sit down on that throne. Had something happened between Lin Feng and the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points? Were they angry at each other? Who was this homeless old man?
Song Chou Jiu was confused. Lin Feng had come back and quickly gone to the residence of the Ancestor of the Five Cardinal Points. Now he was back with this old man. What had happened?
The Ancestor of the Tower didn’t care what those people thought. As long as Lin Feng respected him, everything was fine. As for those Holy, Spiritual, and Ordinary Godly Ancestors, he didn’t really care.
“Everybody, I left the Region of the Eight Corners for two weeks. Has anything happened while I was traveling?” Lin Feng asked, looking at the representatives of the different territories.
Li Ju and Ta Han Yuan glanced at each other and nodded. Zhan Gan and Zhan Han wanted to say something, but they had just pledged allegiance to the Region of the Eight Corners, and were afraid they would offend the other members if they said something, so they remained silent. Miss Eight, Water, and Life were not Lin Feng’s servants, so they didn’t need to say anything.
Finally, Song Chou Jiu answered. He was the manager of the Region of the Eight Corners and Lin Feng’s assistant.
“Leader, there are three things I have to tell you,” said Song Chou Jiu, showing three fingers. He looked calmly at Lin Feng and waited, but Lin Feng didn’t say anything and just looked at him, so Song Chou Jiu continued, “First thing, the Region of the Eight Corners now has six hundred and forty cultivators of the top of the Great Supreme God layer. Five hundred of them might be able to break through to the Ordinary Godly Ancestor layer. As for the others, it will be extremely difficult.”
“Continue,” Lin Feng ordered firmly.
“The eight territories of the Region of the Eight Corners are waiting for you. To help all those people break through to the ordinary Godly Ancestor layer, they need cultivation resources, but there are no resources in the Region of the Eight Corners!” Song Chou Jiu informed him worriedly. It was a dangerous situation. Even though the Region of the Eight Corners was reunified, everybody still wanted to progress.
More and more people were about to break through, and they needed cultivation resources!
Lin Feng looked at Song Chou Jiu and then at all the representatives of the Region of the Eight Corners. He looked worried. If all those young geniuses couldn’t break through in the Region of the Eight Corners, they might lose them. It wasn’t the best time to lose allies!
“What kind of cultivation resources?” Lin Feng had no solution for the time being, because he usually didn’t need too many cultivation resources. Most of the time, when he needed cultivation resources to break through, he usually went on deadly missions, was lucky to find what he needed, and survived. He hadn’t grown up in the World of Battles, so he didn’t know about the cultivation resources people in the World of Battles needed to advance.
“Battle money would be the best. Otherwise, some Spirit Gems would be good too, or even some pure Qi crystals,” said Song Chou Jiu, forcing a smile. All those things were difficult to find.
“What? Don’t we have any cultivation resources??” Lin Feng frowned. It seemed like there was something fishy. The Region of the Eight Corners had so many strong cultivators, why didn’t they have resources?
Lin Feng looked at those people’s expressions. He tried to see if some people looked angry. He asked Song Chou Jiu, “Brother Song, has anything happened recently in the Region of the Eight Corners?”
“That’s the second thing I was going to tell you. Ten thousand li away from the Region of the Eight Corners, in a corner of the territory, a new and mysterious influential group has arisen. They call themselves the Alliance of the Destroyers of Evil. They keep destroying the symbols of our Region of the Eight Corners, our resources, and they have even injured many disciples from the Region of the Eight Corners.”
“Everybody is mocking us in the Northwest of the World of Battles. Many people think we’re cowards,” stated Song Chou Jiu angrily. When Lin Feng was away, it had been extremely difficult for him because he had had to take care of everything alone. He knew everything, including all the problems, and he was exhausted.
Lin Feng frowned. He hadn’t thought a new influential group would arise while he was away. The Alliance of the Destroyers of Evil? What evil? They were probably there specially for the Region of the Eight Corners! Lin Feng looked at Meng Qing.
“Little Qing, what’s going on?” Lin Feng asked Meng Qing telepathically. He needed a short yet precise answer, and Meng Qing was good at summing up things.
“Husband, the Alliance of the Destroyers of Evil is an alliance that wants to provoke you and the Region of the Eight Corners. They appeared the day after you left. Ni Huang has allowed them to continue.”
“Ni Huang allowed them?” Lin Feng was confused and angry. Ni Huang was causing trouble again? Did she want to release her anger on him after what Fu Xi had done?
Meng Qing knew what Lin Feng was thinking, but could only smile silently. She looked beautiful and noble, like women in the ancient times.
The people knew Lin Feng and Meng Qing were chatting telepathically, and didn’t dare interrupt them.
“Ni Huang is the ultimate ruler of the Northwest. She can make all decisions. Whenever an influential group wants to settle in the Northwest, isn’t it a good thing for her?”
“Yes. I understand,” Lin Feng nodded. After that, Lin Feng didn’t think Ni Huang had made a mistake. She had done something good for herself.
“Brother Song, what is the third thing?” asked Lin Feng, turning around.
“Leader, it’s the most important thing…” said Song Chou Jiu bowing hand over fist.
The Ancestor of the Tower interrupted him and said to Lin Feng calmly, “The Ceremony of the North!”
“Eh…” Song Chou Jiu was astonished. How did this old homeless man know about that?
Lin Feng looked at him curiously. How did the Ancestor of the Tower know what Song Chou Jiu was going to say?
“Don’t look at me like that. That boring ceremony takes place every year. They call it a ceremony, but it’s just a way for the different influential groups to compare their strengths.”
