“So, what are your plans, Master?” Lin Feng asked Zu Ti sternly, frowning.
“What could I do? You used the Sword of Remote Times, I have to follow you. Who else would I follow otherwise?” said the old man impatiently.
Lin Feng smiled. That’s exactly what he wanted to hear. He was ninety-nine percent sure the old man would say that before he asked that question, but he wanted the old man to say it himself.
“Are you laughing up your sleeves? With me, you needn’t fear anyone. Only high-level Supreme Gods can pose a threat to you,” said the old man impatiently. He knew what Lin Feng was thinking.
“You must be joking, Master. It is an immense and extraordinary honor for me to have the Sword Ancestor’s soul on my side,” Lin Feng said, shaking his head modestly. He didn’t want to show he was overjoyed.
“What rubbish!” said the old man waving. He didn’t believe Lin Feng was being honest, so he ignored Lin Feng and turned into the Sword of Remote Times again. Lin Feng attached the sword to his back.
Lin Feng stood up and looked at the dark sky. There were many mountains all around. He couldn’t see much from here, so he had no choice but to rise high up in the sky and then leave those mountains.
Lin Feng glanced around. There were mountains everywhere, some small and some huge. Even though it was dark, he could see a lush green vegetation in the distance. Trees swung in the wind. The wind was strong and loud in the mountains. Lin Feng could also hear beasts roaring in the distance. Being in the mountains at night could be dangerous sometimes.
Lin Feng wasn’t too scared, though. When he heard those beasts roar furiously, he couldn’t help but think of the primal chaos beast Yan Zhen had captured. The primal chaos beast had sacrificed himself to protect him. Yan Zhen wasn’t trustworthy, lying to kidnap the primal chaos beast. How could Lin Feng save him now?
“Buddy, even though we haven’t known each other for a long time, I will definitely come back to save you. I will never forget your kindness and loyalty,” Lin Feng said resolutely. He would never be able to rest in peace if he didn’t save the primal chaos beast.
“Hey, Lin Feng, are you blaming me for not helping you rescue the primal chaos beast?” said the Sword of Remote Times hoarsely, suddenly shaking on Lin Feng’s back.
Lin Feng shook his head and smiled, “How could I? You did that to save me, Master, I would never blame you for that. Don’t worry.”
“Alright. If I had saved the primal chaos beast, you would be dead now.”
“I will always remember your kindness, Master,” Lin Feng replied with a nod.
“Alright then,” said the old man. Then his Qi disappeared and he stopped talking.
Lin Feng touched the Sword of Remote Times on his back and gazed into the distance. He started releasing strength to fly. He saw a mountain range he wanted to reach before sunrise.
Lang Xie City, Great Leader’s residence, Young Prince’s mansion house…
A man in black clothes was seated on a throne. He had his feet on a ten-year-old boy. The boy was struggling to get away, but he wasn’t strong enough. He couldn’t stand up, he was lying down under the man’s feet, and looked extremely annoyed.
“I’ve heard that you killed all your teachers? Did that happen?” asked the middle-aged man indifferently. He brought his cup of tea to his lips and sipped it slowly, ignoring the struggling boy under his feet.
The Young Prince was extremely pale, his eyes were filled with murder. He roared in outrage, “I will kill you! I will kill you! ARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” His voice hadn’t broken yet, so he still sounded like a girl. His voice was screechy and loud. The man seemed completely indifferent, though.
“You don’t respect teachers, I’ll add a thousand jin force, then,” said the middle-aged man indifferently. He pressed even harder on the young boy’s body, his Qi becoming a thousand jin heavier. The boy groaned with pain, his face growing paler and paler. He had the impression he was being crushed by a mountain, he was out of breath.
“I want to stand up! My father will kill you! He will definitely kill you!” shouted the boy furiously, clenching his fists.
“You’re threatening a teacher? You don’t know what it means to be a good disciple, do you? I’ll add three thousand jin of strength, then.”
Crack! The man continued releasing more Qi. A crackling sound spread out as the floor of the room began to buckle. The boy was pushed down into the floor. His face was deathly pale and his Qi weakened.
The boy wanted to say something, but he kept quiet. He didn’t dare say anything anymore, otherwise, the man would add even more strength. The little boy was already in pain. Where had his father found such a teacher? He was so different from his previous instructors…
His previous teachers had never dared touch him. He had always humiliated them and then killed them in the end, then he had found new teachers. His new teacher was even crueler than he was!
Suddenly, he smelled death Qi. If he continued disobeying, he might die!
He was afraid. Finally, the young prince understood what fear was. He didn’t dare say anything else. The man grinned in satisfaction.
“The lesson is over. We’ll continue tomorrow. Leave now,” said the middle-aged man, raising his feet and letting the boy stand up. In the blink of an eye, the middle-aged man disappeared from his throne. The boy only heard the door slam behind him.
The boy put his hand on his chest. He felt humiliated. He had never felt humiliated like this. He was the Young Prince of Lang Xie City, and someone dared humiliate him like that? That scumbag of a teacher did!
“Hmph! I will find a teacher who will make you suffer, he will crush your muscles and drink your blood! AAAAARRRRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” shouted the young boy. If he had been strong enough, he would have killed this teacher on the spot. Then he would have looked for a new one for some more fun. With this teacher, he couldn’t have fun!
“Wait until we find you a second teacher,” said an indifferent voice from outside. The boy was so terrified that he became even paler. He quickly stopped talking and ran away from the courtyard as quickly as he could. Then he remembered it was his own residence…
The next day, early in the morning…
The sun rose in the east. It was a bit cloudy. Time passed, the clouds disappeared and the sun appeared high up in the sky. It felt warm.
Lin Feng had traveled all night before arriving in Lang Xie City. The city was spread over six thousand li. There were buildings everywhere, densely packed. Lin Feng was stupefied.
He had never seen such a city, he wouldn’t even describe such a place as a city. It was as big as country. Lang Xie City was five times bigger than San Country!
“Lang Xie City is one of the Four Great Cities of the Continent of Eternity. It isn’t extremely powerful, but it is definitely more powerful than San Country. There are three high-level Supreme Gods in Lang Xie City… well, at least that’s how it was back in the days. A hundred thousand years have passed, so many things have probably changed.
“Lang Xie City is divided into East Lang Xie and West Lang Xie. The central axis is the demarcation line. They administer their affairs regardless of overall interests and the way they want, but when they face an external enemy, then they collaborate.
“The reason why they are divided is actually for the well-being of everybody; everybody can progress much faster on the path of cultivation like that, because there’s a fierce competition going on between both sides, so everybody always feels motivated. They always want to surpass one another.
“Every year, they organize a competition between both sides. Some referees log everything into a journal as a proof. That’s Lang Xie City.”
Lin Feng hadn’t even landed on the ground, yet the Sword of Remote Times had explained everything to Lin Feng, telling him everything he knew.
When Lin Feng heard that, he nodded. It was always good to gain knowledge about places he went. He landed on the ground and entered the city according to the rules.
Lang Xie City didn’t have many rules. The only clear rule was that outsiders couldn’t come into the city by air. That was considered a provocation for all the heroes and geniuses of the city. If anyone dared try, the heroes usually chased them and killed them. Of course, Lin Feng didn’t act recklessly and respected the rules.
The guards of Lang Xie City didn’t bully the weak or fear the strong. They were fair. No matter who came, they just interrogated and examined them to decide whether they could enter the city or not. They were fair, but strict.
Lin Feng immediately noticed San Country and this city were completely different. No wonder San Country was becoming weaker and weaker. They didn’t stand a chance to progress. San Country was already small, and it wasn’t because strong people bullied them, it was because the people of San Country weren’t motivated to progress.
After a simple interrogation and examination, Lin Feng entered Lang Xie City.
After walking for a dozen li in town, Lin Feng already appreciated how majestic and sumptuous the city was. The main road was hundreds of meters wide. Even with hundreds of people on the road, one didn’t feel crowded at all, there was more than enough space. There were also many beautiful and majestic wains. The people seemed educated, respectful, and civilized. Nobody acted indecently on the street.
“As expected, Lang Xie City hasn’t changed at all,” the Sword of Remote Times said nostalgically. Lang Xie City hadn’t changed since the last time he had been there a hundred thousand years ago!
