PMG Chapter 1142: Mysterious Fortune City
“Fortune City has appeared!”
Everyone in the four towns surrounding Fortune City raised their heads and looked at Fortune City. It looked like a gothic painting, like an illusion. It appeared to be ancient, majestic, domineering, lofty, intense.
“Fortune City is an illusion according to the legends, but many people have gotten lucky there.” thought some of the crowd. The event in Fortune City wasn’t something planned, they couldn’t just show up on a certain date. Everyone had to wait for the city appear on its own.
Usually, when people looked in the direction of Fortune City, they saw nothing: no buildings and definitely no city. The mist disappeared only when the Diviner started an event.
“What’s going on? Why are there so many castles rising up in the air?” thought some people. The castles were gradually emerging from the ground and rising high into the sky. Some people started wondering if the city wasn’t an illusion, just that it was underground most of the time.
“I can see some beasts too!” said someone else surprised.
“Some people are going in!”
A crowd of people began entering Fortune City and disappear inside.
“How fast. Some people couldn’t wait any longer it seems.”
“The Diviner can predict people’s future and can even influence their futures. My life will certainly become better after I visit Fortune City, I’ll reach the clouds!” said someone loudly. He sounded extremely proud as he entered Fortune City.
“Fortune City!” at that moment, Lin Feng also saw Fortune City. Meng Qing didn’t say anything, she remained calm while sitting next to him.
“Let’s go!” said Lin Feng grabbing Meng Qing’s hand. In another palace nearby, a young man and an animal also saw Fortune City rising.
“Huang Fu Long, Emperor!” shouted Lin Feng landing on their palace.
“Little boy, you only just remembered us now!” said Qiong Qi angrily. Lin Feng hadn’t spent much time with them those days. He just gave them the two Zun cultivators’ souls and explained that they needed to find two bodies for them, but Qiong Qi didn’t know where to find bodies for them.
“What did you do to Huang Fu Long!” Lin Feng exclaimed. Huang Fu Long’s face was grey and it looked burnt.
“I saw that he needed to become stronger so I taught him some things. He’s lucky to have me as a teacher.” said Qiong Qi putting his paw on his chest and sounding proud. Huang Fu Long just looked exasperated and shrugged. He was smiling, but didn’t look that happy.
“Lin Feng, if you leave me alone with him again, we won’t be friends for very long.” said Huang Fu Long scratching his head and grinding his teeth.
“Eh…” Lin Feng looked at Huang Fu Long with compassion.
“You’re lucky to have me as a teacher, but surprisingly, you dare criticize me.” said Qiong Qi looking back at Huang Fu Long in a ferocious way. Huang Fu Long quickly lowered his head. Lin Feng didn’t look happy either.
“Emperor, did Fortune City exist when you were still alive?” asked Lin Feng pointing at Fortune City. Qiong Qi was a thousand years old and he used to be a great emperor, so he might know some things.
“It did. It’s been there since the creation of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.” said Qiong Qi staring at the illusion.
“Is there anything particular I should know going in? And do you know anything about the Diviner?” asked Lin Feng. He knew that the Diviner could predict people‘s future and influence it.
Qiong Qi’s eyes twinkled and he looked nervous, he almost frowned. He stared at the illusion and shook his head.
“Nothing?!” How was that possible? Qiong Qi was bragging all the time that he used to be a great emperor. He definitely had to know something.
“I can tell you because it’s more complicated than you can handle!” said Yan Di back at Lin Feng.
Lin Feng remained silent and then said, “I heard some people had asked emperors about Fortune City, but they wouldn’t say anything about it. All they would admit was that each time the young geniuses from all around went there, the course of history changed drastically.”
“Ba Huang Province!” when Qiong Qi heard Lin Feng, he started laughing. Lin Feng was confused by this erratic behaviour. Qiong Qi noticed his confusion so he said, “Your views are too simplistic. Do you really think that only the Ba Huang Province is attending?”
“Eh?” Lin Feng looked surprised, it wasn’t just the Ba Huang Province? Did people from other places, provinces, regions etc. come to Fortune City as well?
“What do you mean?” asked Lin Feng.
“You’ll see when you go inside. Even though I have the status of a great emperor, I’ll only have the strength of the Tian Qi layer once we step inside. Let’s go to Fortune City!” said Qiong Qi. Lin Feng was surprised, “Are emperors not allowed in Fortune City?”
“I never said that.” said Qiong Qi sighing. “There are just some customs, usually people stick these conventions, but a few people will go against them, even great emperors!”
Lin Feng said, “What you mean to say is that there are definite rules in the Continent of the Nine Cloud? If great emperors aren’t supposed to enter Fortune City, is it because a great emperor organizes the event?”
“I told you, I don’t know. If you want to understand you’ll have to go there!” said Qiong Qi indifferently. Lin Feng looked at Fortune City, his eyes were twinkling.
“Lin Feng…” at that moment, Huang Fu Long scratched his head. He looked confused as he said, “Lin Feng, what do you mean? Is he a… great emperor?”
Huang Fu Long was pointing to Qiong Qi, it was as if he had seen a ghost. From Lin Feng and Qiong Qi’s conversation, it sounded like Qiong Qi had been a great emperor.
“Bullshit, of course I am!” said Qiong Qi proudly.
“He almost got killed by someone, but he managed to come back to life. Don’t mention it to anyone.” said Lin Feng to Huang Fu Long using telepathy. Huang Fu Long was astonished. Qiong Qi really was a… great emperor!
After a while, Huang Fu Long didn’t look that angry anymore. He looked back at Qiong Qi and even smiled, “Emperor, didn’t you say you wanted to give me some skills? What about now…?”
“Piss off!” said Qiong Qi in a disdainful way. Huang Fu Long was now extremely disappointed.
