“Teacher, do you think my parents are in danger?” asked Jiang Xuan. They were almost at Lang Xie City already. In less than half an hour, they would arrive in West Lang Xie. Jiang Xuan was growing more worried as they drew closer.
Lin Feng looked grave. He couldn’t be sure that people from Lang Xie City were safe under the Lei Sect’s occupation. He didn’t know what they were doing there. Did they kill people, or did they just oppress and imprison them?
“Don’t worry. They’ll be fine. Trust me,” Lin Feng said. He couldn’t show Jiang Xuan he was worried. He didn’t want the boy to panic. He was just a child, after all. No matter what, he still thought like a child.
Jiang Xuan nodded and followed Lin Feng. Lin Feng held the boy’s hand and they flew towards West Lang Xie.
Half an hour later, they arrived in the splendid and glorious city. It hadn’t changed; on the contrary, it looked even more beautiful than it had in the past. Lin Feng was surprised.
Even though Lin Feng had never been to the Lei Sect, he had already sensed Lei Ben and Lei Kui’s Qi, and didn’t sense any thunder Qi in Lang Xie City. On the contrary, he could sense a cool spiritual Qi, which shook Lin Feng’s Genesis spiritual strength.
“Strange…” whispered Lin Feng. He continued flying towards the capital of Lang Xie City. He wanted to know what was going on there, and going to the capital was the best way to assess the situation.
Lin Feng thought of Tian Fan and Supreme God Xie. He also remembered that he had agreed to give Supreme God Xie a part of his life to save Tian Fan. Even though they hadn’t gone further with it, Supreme God Xie couldn’t be sure he could beat Lin Feng anymore, so he probably wouldn’t dare kill Tian Fan.
Would he see Tian Fan there? No way to know. Thinking about that, Lin Feng flew even faster.
The main gate of the governmental palace was open. There were a few guards, all looking vigorous and strong. They didn’t seem to be worried by the Lei Sect’s presence.
What was going on? Lin Feng had more and more doubts. The disciples noticed Lin Feng and suddenly looked serious. They raised their spears and stopped him.
“Prince, please leave the governmental palace,” said the leader of the guards firmly yet politely. He didn’t want to humiliate Lin Feng.
“We would like to go in,” Lin Feng said impassively.
The guard’s expression froze as he asked, “You want to go in?”
“What? Is there a problem?” asked Lin Feng skeptically.
The guard looked confused and said, “Don’t you know that we are occupied by an ancient sect?”
“You know and you still want to go in? They’re not as kind as our leader was. They will kill you if you go in,” said the guard neutrally. He was surprised that Lin Feng still wanted to go in. He didn’t know why Lin Feng was being so brave.
“I know, so why couldn’t I go in?” Lin Feng smiled.
The guards all shook their heads. They just thought he was reckless.
“Alright, since you really want to go in, go ahead!” said the guard, smiling wryly. Since Lin Feng didn’t mind dying, why prevent him from going through? They wouldn’t feel guilty, as they had warned him.
The guards thus opened the way.
“Thank you. Also, since Lang Xie City doesn’t exist anymore, why do you still work as guards?” asked Lin Feng curiously.
“Why wouldn’t we? The only thing that has changed is that the leaders of Lang Xie City are not the Jiangs anymore. Nothing else. We still need to work to eat and live,” said the guards casually. For them, nothing had changed!
When Lin Feng heard that, he understood. When Jian Xuan did, he was also reassured that his family was fine.
“Where are the Jiangs now?” asked Lin Feng seriously.
The guards’ went on alert They looked at Lin Feng vigilantly and asked, “What do you want to do? Why are you so concerned about them?”
“I am just a traveler. I want to have a rest. Sorry for disturbing you,” Lin Feng said when he saw their expressions. He entered the city with Jiang Xuan. He would be able to assess the situation with his own eyes.
Jiang Xuan and Lin Feng entered the city and faced a bridge with a slow-flowing, crystal clear stream flowing under it.
After a short time, they arrived in front of the main golden palace. The gate of the palace was open, and there was nobody in the meeting hall.
Lin Feng and Jiang Xuan entered the room. Lin Feng remembered the place, but it didn’t seem so familiar anymore. Regarding Jiang Xuan, he had no familiar feeling at all, since he had never been to the main palace of West Lang Xie, he only knew the palace of East Lang Xie.
They entered the meeting hall. It hadn’t changed much, but the Qi inside was more intense. It made people feel more powerful.
It was clear that Lang Xie City was occupied, even if the differences were subtle.
Lin Feng glanced around. He really didn’t understand why the Lei Sect liked this place.
Lin Feng heard some steps. They were powerful, which meant it was a strong cultivator. His expression hardened. He pushed Jiang Xuan behind him and looked at the person who had just shown up.
The silhouette gradually became clearer and clearer. Lin Feng didn’t know them.
It was a middle-aged man wearing a blue robe, with short light brown hair. He looked rather average, with no distinctive trait. The only thing Lin Feng could think of to remember his kind of face was that the man had small eyes.
Lin Feng was surprised because the man knew him. What was going on?
“Who are you? You’re not from the Lei Sect?” asked Lin Feng icily. The man didn’t have the same explosive Qi as the members of the Lei Sect. His Qi was similar to the Qi inside the meeting hall. It was a spiritual Qi which made people feel carefree and happy, relaxed and joyful.
“Lei Sect? Aren’t they in East Lang Xie?” laughed the man in reply. Lin Feng’s expression fell. The Lei Sect occupied East Lang Xie? What about West Lang Xie, then?
The man was from another sect? How did that happen?
Lin Feng was alarmed. At the same time, he was even more worried. Jiang Xuan’s family probably wasn’t having a good time in comparison to Jiang Yi Ze’s family, who could continue working and living as usual.
Lin Feng took a deep breath and tried to calm down. If he was worried, his Qi became unstable, and Jiang Xuan might notice it, so he had to remain calm.
“Since you’re not from the Lei Sect, which sect are you from then?” he asked.
“Hehe. I am not from a shitty sect like the Lei Sect. I can’t tell you my sect’s name though, because we haven’t announced our reappearance in this world.
“But I can tell you that we are at least as strong as the Tai Qing Sect. You know how strong the Tai Qing Sect sect is. If the Tai Qing Sect said they were the second strongest sect, then we would be the first.
“Regardless, my sect doesn’t mean you any harm.
“Alright, anyway, you can leave now. I have told you enough,” the man grinned.
Lin Feng stared at the man. The atmosphere was heavy.
After a long time, Lin Feng nodded and said, “Alright. See you. I didn’t mean to disturb you.”
“You didn’t. In the future, if you want to come here, or if you are in danger, you can come whenever you want. We will always welcome you.
“Also don’t ask the disciples of West Lang Xie anything, they don’t know about my sect either!” The man sounded amused.
Lin Feng nodded cautiously and left with Jiang Xuan.
