“I don’t have an actual apprentice-mentor relationship with him. He called me senior when he saw me. Hehe, but I regarded him as a master in my heart. Do you think that’s a joke?” Ancestor Tai smiled faintly, helplessness in his eyes.
Lin Feng shook his head and didn’t think there was anything wrong with it. No one knew Fu Xi’s strength more than he did. He was the great god of ancient times and the Human Ancestor. There was nothing wrong for such a strong man to be the master of Ancestor Tai. But Fu Xi was also a humble person, and he would respect Ancestor Tai, who was older than him.
This was reasonable. The only abnormal part was the difference in their strengths. The elder one was an Overlord, but the other younger one was a Heavenly Godly Ancestor.
Lin Feng’s eyes were solemn. He looked at Ancestor Tai and asked in a deep voice, “Fu Xi has family members and children in the World of Battles. Do you know that?”
Hearing this, Ancestor Tai nodded and smiled slowly. He didn’t want to mention this fact, because according to Ni Huang’s age, she was a junior to him. But considering his relationship with Fu Xi, Ni Huang became his master’s wife. Wasn’t that ironic?
“That’s why I think highly of you. I only knew that you worked under Ni Huang before. But now I know that you are connected with the master, I’m totally relieved. At least we are friends, not enemies!” Ancestor Tai smiled. The little bit of unease in his heart was now gone at this moment.
“Actually, I don’t know Fu Xi,” Lin Feng didn’t want to lie, so he told the truth.
Ancestor Tai’s expression changed a little, and then he asked, “How come? Didn’t you master the Emperor Yan’s Scripture? This is a secret that the master wouldn’t teach.”
“Hehe, the Emperor Yan’s Scripture belongs to him, me, and even everyone in our ethnic group,” Lin Feng smiled lightly and said calmly.
Hearing this, Ancestor Tai’s expression became more and more puzzled. He kept shaking his head and said, “I don’t understand. Do you mean that my master and you belong to the same clan?”
“Well, you can say that.” Lin Feng nodded and didn’t want to explain too much to Ancestor Tai. After all, the relationship between Fu Xi and Ancestor Tai was just that Ancestor Tai recognized Fu Xi as the master wishfully. Maybe Fu Xi didn’t want to explain more about the details, so there was no need for him to point them out.
“I see.” Ancestor Tai nodded. He was a little disappointed, but at least Lin Feng and Fu Xi were from the same place, from the same clan, which was enough. In that way, they were still the same kind of people, not enemies.
“Ancestor Tai, you ask me to come simply for this thing?” Looking at Ancestor Tai, Lin Feng began to murmur in his heart. This should not be enough for Ancestor Tai to call him into the palace in such a hurry. He was almost certain about it, and there was no need to make sure by himself, so there should be other things.
Ancestor Tai smiled and appreciated Lin Feng’s intelligence. He always hated when his subordinates were smarter than him, but Lin Feng was not only his subordinate, but also there was a special relationship between them, so Ancestor Tai was not so dissatisfied.
“I’m here to ask you if you want to enter the Imperial Mausoleum once!” Ancestor Tai looked at Lin Feng with a smile, and his eyes were strange, which made Lin Feng very surprised and confused.
The Imperial Mausoleum? Lin Feng shook his head. He didn’t quite understand what Ancestor Tai meant, and he hated this kind of mysteriousness. Noticing that Lin Feng was a little unhappy, Ancestor Tai stopped talking nonsense and said straightforwardly, “There is an Imperial Mausoleum in the Zhen Wu Dynasty, where three Tai Ancestors and sixteen important princes and officials of the Zhen Wu Dynasty are buried.”
“Three Tai Ancestors?” When Lin Feng heard this, he was deeply shocked, because he had no idea that there had been three dynasties in the Zhen Wu Dynasty. There were three emperors before the current Ancestor Tai?!
“Well, you didn’t happen to think that the Zhen Wu Dynasty is like those small forces, and that I was the founder of the country?” Ancestor Tai was full of smiles, and he laughed at Lin Feng’s surprise.
Lin Feng also smiled a little. He really had thought that Ancestor Tai was the founder of the Zhen Wu Dynasty. After all, Ancestor Tai was no longer young, but now it seemed that it was not the case.
“When the World of Battles was first created, there were actually thirty overlords who built this vast continent together. All thirty overlords, with no exceptions, came from the Country of Eternity. They created their own World of Battles, so they were called overlords at the earliest Ancestor level.
“Among these thirty Overlords was the founder of the Zhen Wu Dynasty, who was my great grandfather, Dong Fang Heng. He occupied part of the world and started an empire called the Zhen Wu Empire.
“Later, the throne was passed on to my grandfather, Dong Fang Duo. After he was in charge for three hundred thousand years, he passed it on to my uncle, Dong Fang Yu Qing’s grandfather, Dong Fang Wu Di. When uncle was in charge of the Empire, he changed the name to the Zhen Wu Dynasty. Since then, the Zhen Wu Dynasty has become a giant existence in the Southeast of the World of Battles.
“At that time, the title of Ancestor Tai, which was created by my uncle, also became popular. Later, after he passed away, he passed this position on to me.
“You may wonder why didn’t he pass on his position to his son, who was the father of Dong Fang Yu Qing?” At this point, Ancestor Tai didn’t want to break the mood, but he still turned around and glanced at Lin Feng. Lin Feng could only nod. In fact, he wasn’t very interested in listening to this, but Ancestor Tai was enthusiastic and Lin Feng didn’t want to spoil his mood.
“Because master Fu Xi gave me an epiphany and guided me to become an Overlord one step ahead of Dong Fang Yu Qing’s father. That’s why his father got depressed and passed away. I feel that I owe something to my brother and Dong Fang Yu Qing, so I value Dong Fang Yu Qing as my son.
“It took a long time for me to discover that Dong Fang Yu Qing hated me in his heart. He blamed his father’s death on me. After a long time, he has gathered authority to his hand and secretly won over many cultivators. That is to say, he wants to oust me and become the emperor one day.
“Well, I didn’t want to tell you about this, but there’s no other way. You bear a deep grudge against Dong Fang Yu Qing, don’t lie to me. I know that the reason you are staying in the Zhen Wu Dynasty is to kill Dong Fang Yu Qing, right?” Ancestor Tai said. His eyes were fixed on Lin Feng, and the atmosphere in the back hall changed abruptly.
Lin Feng’s heart sank. He looked at Ancestor Tai’s distant expression and didn’t know what to do. But no matter what Ancestor Tai meant, Lin Feng’s position would not change, and it needed no further justification. He nodded, “Tes, I’m looking for an opportunity to kill Dong Fang Yu Qing.”
“Sure enough.” Ancestor Tai’s heart sank. A guess was not necessarily a reality after all. But after his guess was confirmed, Ancestor Tai was a little unwilling to accept it.
“What would you like to say, sir?” Lin Feng still hadn’t figured out what this old man wanted. He mentioned Fu Xi and the Imperial Mausoleum, and now Dong Fang Yu Qing. What was he trying to say?
Ancestor Tai was in a complex mood. It was difficult to make this decision, but he could only be ruthless for the sake of himself, his daughter, and the peace of the entire Zhen Wu Dynasty.
“I agree with you on killing Dong Fang Yu Qing, but there are conditions!” Ancestor Tai’s deep voice scared Lin Feng. Lin Feng couldn’t believe that Ancestor Tai had made such a decision himself.
Dong Fang Yu Qing was his nephew, and at present, the only descendant of Dong Fang. If Dong Fang Yu Qing died, his family line would be ended!
Ancestor Tai seemed to have seen through Lin Feng’s thoughts, so he smiled and said, “Tou can rest assured that the Dong Fang family line will not end. Don’t think that I only have two brothers.”
“What? You don’t?” Lin Feng was startled. How could Ancestor Tai hide such a secret?
“Of course not. You can release Pin Guan tomorrow, which is also the condition for me to agree with you to kill Dong Fang Yu Qing. Pin Guan is extremely guilty, but after all, he is from the Dong Fang family. Compared with Pin Guan, the latter attracts you more, right?”
Ancestor Tai stared at Lin Feng with a smile for a long time. He had already decided on the deed, but he didn’t expect the executor to be Lin Feng.
After Lin Feng was shocked and calmed down, he made it clear about this series of logic. In fact, Pin Guan was from the Dong Fang family, but it was not as simple as him being the nephew of Ancestor Tai. Dong Fang Yu Qing had touched the bottom line of Ancestor Tai’s ruling, so Ancestor Tai was ready to give up Dong Fang Yu Qing and to kill him.
The key to all this was him. Lin Feng thought of this and couldn’t help laughing. After a cycle, there was a way out. He was worried about how to kill Dong Fang Yu Qing, but now he didn’t need to worry.
“Well, I promise Ancestor Tai that I will tell people to free Pin Guan after I go back, but you’d better control him, otherwise…”Lin Feng didn’t go on, but Ancestor Tai should understand.
“Haha, let’s make it a deal!” Ancestor Tai suddenly rejoiced. After saying this, he finally got rid of his heartache. In order to stabilize the Zhen Wu Dynasty, he could only apologize to his brother and his nephew.
An emperor is the most ruthless person. It was a correct saying. Lin Feng was satisfied with this decision, but he felt a chill go down his back. Fortunately, he was not born in the emperor’s family, otherwise, he would be doomed to be sad.
“In addition, go to the Imperial Mausoleum with Ling Jiao. There are many good things in it. Although you have passed into the Earthly Godly Ancestor realm, it is still difficult to challenge an Overlord. If you happen to get some good things by chance, it will only be good for you, with no harm.”
“Well, I know.” Lin Feng didn’t refuse Ancestor Tai’s kindness, which was a reward for taking the risk to kill Dong Fang Yu Qing.
“You should not be delayed. Enter the Imperial Mausoleum with Ling Jiao now.” Ancestor Tai seemed to be worried about the changes later, so he anxiously ordered Lin Feng to proceed.
At this time, Nian Ling Jiao came in from outside.
Nian Ling Jiao was dressed simply. She wore a white long tunic to her knees, showing half of her fair-skinned legs. Her light blue high boots seemed to flash like water. The waist of the white long uniform was tied with an emerald belt, a phoenix engraved on the buckle.
Nian Ling Jiao’s pretty face was a little pink and delicate, with long black eyelashes framing her watery eyes, showing her exotic beauty. The corners of her mouth were always teasing a smile, like a crescent moon.
The neutral uniform gave Nian Ling Jiao a sense of masculinity. If she went out and was introduced as a man, it might well be believable.
“Let’s go, Lin Feng!” Nian Ling Jiao smiled sweetly and turned away, leaving Lin Feng with an enchanted look. Lin Feng smiled bitterly and could only catch up and head straight to the Imperial Mausoleum.
Ancestor Tai stood behind and watched them go, smiling. He hoped that something would happen between his daughter and Lin Feng. Lin Feng was a dragon, and he had begun to show his glory. If he didn’t catch such a hero, he would be a fool. It would be even more difficult to meet another one!
