Chapter 568: A Global Plot?
Edited by RED
“Lin Feng, before asking me questions, I want to ask you how you came to the Continent of the Nine Clouds.”
Lin Feng wanted to ask Lewis even more questions, but Lewis interrupted him. Lin Feng didn’t understand and was startled at first, but he responded quickly. He smiled and said, “Mister Time personally brought me to the Continent of the Nine Clouds from Earth.
“Because of that, he lost half of his strength and half of his forbidden body. He did that because he obeyed Ancestor Kong’s orders.”
Because Jeston was also from Earth, Lin Feng decided to tell him everything clearly. It felt natural. Even when he talked to Meng Qing, he never felt at ease like this. When he talked to Meng Qing, he had the impression he was talking to a white cloud. At this moment, Lin Feng realized how much he missed the Earth.
“Hehe, do you really believe that?” However, as Lin Feng was thinking, Jeston scoffed coldly. Lin Feng had the impression something wrong was going to happen.
“Jeston, what do you know?” asked Lin Feng. He knew there was something going on.
Why had Ancestor Kong asked Mister Time to bring him to this world? What was his purpose? Lin Feng had never had doubts about Ancestor Kong because he had brought him back to life, but now that he had met Jeston, he had doubts about everything.
“Lin Feng, I’ll first tell you how I ended up here,” said Jeston. That was Lin Feng’s first question.
Jeston glanced outside of the room. Ji Yang was still guarding the door. He didn’t try to listen to what they were talking about. To ensure the secrecy of their conversation, Lin Feng released some space and time strength to isolate them. Now, even though they were both seated in the meeting room, nobody else could listen to them. Since Lin Feng controlled both space and time, nobody could get close to them, either.
“I’m the same as you. Someone brought me here. Someone brought you to Xue Yue in the Continent of the Nine Clouds, someone brought me to the East of the Continent of the Gods. The same person brought us to the world of cultivation, Mister Time!
“Mister Time put you in the Continent of the Nine Clouds, and he put me in the Supranatural Region’s Holy Shrine. When I arrived in this world, I was an ordinary disciple of the Supranatural Region’s Holy Shrine. Then I met Ji Yang, and the Supranatural Region’s Holy Shrine slowly started attaching more and more importance to me. Then Ji Yang and I pledged allegiance to a teacher, and that’s how we became so strong.”
Jeston seemed quite thoughtful. When Lin Feng heard that, he was stupefied. Mister Time had also brought Jeston to the world of cultivation? Lin Feng was learning more and more secrets…
At the beginning, he asked himself questions about Xuan Yuan the Demon Emperor, Ancestor Kong’s disciple. From what Lin Feng had observed, Mister Time couldn’t have lost only half of his strength, otherwise, he wouldn’t have had the strength of only the Half-Godly Emperor layer.
Now that Lin Feng knew Mister Time had also brought Jeston to that world, he also understood that Mister Time had used his own strength twice, for him, and for Jeston!
Why had Mister Time brought Jeston to the world of cultivation as well? Was it one of Ancestor Kong’s orders, as well? What did Ancestor Kong intend to do?
“Do you have a forbidden body as well?” Lin Feng asked suddenly. Jeston had been brought to the world of cultivation by Mister Time as well, so he probably had a forbidden body as well!
However, when Jeston heard Lin Feng’s question, he smiled indifferently and shook his head. “You’ve obviously heard of people who have forbidden bodies; have you ever heard of those who have holy bodies, who control light? Well, only one type can reach the top.”
“You’re the one who controls light?” Lin Feng didn’t wait for Jeston to finish his sentence, he instantly gasped with amazement.
“Indeed, that’s me. Back then, many cultivators chased after me. They wanted me to bless them with my Light Dao. All the people I bless can break through easily and quickly.
“Back then, I barely managed to escape in time. In the end, I managed to escape and changed my name to Jeston. My real name is Lewis,” said Jeston. His heart was fluttering with fear when he mentioned those things. He was lucky he had managed to escape.
Lin Feng didn’t know what to say. Even though they were both from the Earth, they were already enemies. Di Shu was a chosen one, and Lin Feng had killed him already. Now, only Jeston, who controlled Light Dao, could have an impact on him.
And Jeston had lured him here; it was probably not just to tell him he was from the Earth as well.
“Jeston, what do you intend to do?” asked Lin Feng slowly.
Jeston smiled calmly and said, “Lin Feng, I just want to tell you that we are all being controlled. Don’t ask me how I know that, I can only tell you that I’m eighty percent sure we’re being controlled by someone; everything is.”
“Including the Earth?” asked Lin Feng. He was astonished.
Jeston nodded, “Indeed, the person who controls you might be someone connected to Mister Time, but I don’t know who it could be and I don’t know what their plan is,” said Jeston. He seemed somewhat unsure. Lin Feng knew that Mister Time’s teacher was Ancestor Kong and that Ancestor Kong had many disciples, Xuan Yuan being one of them.
Regarding the reason why Ancestor Kong would want to control them, Lin Feng was convinced it wasn’t to kill them. Lin Feng had died once, and Ancestor Kong had brought him back to life. He could also kill them extremely easy if he wished.
Since he didn’t want to kill them, he probably had another specific goal.
Ancestor Kong was a medium-level Supreme God; what could his goal be? He controlled the strength of the great Tao. He understood the true nature of the world; what else did he want to achieve?
Lin Feng didn’t know what Ancestor Kong’s goal was, but he thought Jeston was probably right, they were probably being controlled. He didn’t mean Jeston and him harm, he was just using them like pieces on a chessboard.
“Lin Feng, let’s collaborate,” Jeston proposed suddenly. Lin Feng came back to his senses; he was astonished at the offer as he looked at Jeston. Jeston seemed sincere…
“You and me? Collaborate?” Lin Feng couldn’t believe it. Someone who controlled Light Dao and someone who had been abandoned by the gods, collaborate? They were supposed to be natural sworn enemies, how could they collaborate? Lin Feng didn’t understand.
Jeston smiled, “Indeed, who said we had to be enemies?
“People who have been abandoned by the gods and chosen ones are natural sworn enemies, but people who control Light Dao don’t necessarily have to be your enemies.
“We were three in this world. Di Shu, who was a chosen one, has already been eliminated. You and I can still be winners. Why not collaborate? Why do we need to be enemies?” stressed Jeston seriously.
Lin Feng was thoughtful. He thought Jeston’s idea was not unfounded. What would happen if he agreed to collaborate with Jeston? It seemed like something unusual to do. What would be the consequences for the world?
Lin Feng was excited. Jeston was excited too.
“I hope we’ll have a fruitful and successful cooperation!”
At that moment, the two of stretched out their hands and shook on it.
“Lin Feng, since you accepted my request, I’ll give you back your grandson.”
