PMG Chapter 1619: Mu Clan’s Guards
“Brother, I’ll tell you something.” Lin Feng turned his head around, the pedestrian was still talking to him.
“Do you want to know something about Miss Qing Ying?” asked that person smiling.
“No, I want to know more about Mu Lin Xue. Do you know anything about her?” Lin Feng shook his head.
When the young man heard Lin Feng, he smiled in an even gentler way. His eyes were wide open as he said, “Brother, I think you shouldn’t think about her too much. Miss Lin Xue is incredible. I have broken through to the seventh Zun Qi layer and you probably have the same level, but in front of Lin Xue, we’re still nothing.”
“I’m just asking, it’s not like I’m having any perverted thoughts. Don’t worry, bro.” replied Lin Feng.
“Miss Lin Xue is the most beautiful girl of the Mu Clan, she’s only twenty years old and she’s already a cultivator at the very top of the Zun Qi layer, and she’s very talented at fabricating weapons. She can already create imperial weapons, which means she has become a Level One Professor, but she’s studying deployment spells these days. She wants to become a Level Two Professor, so she’s getting ready for the big contest.” that person explained slowly.
“Brother, she’s a public figure and that’s it to people like us. We can fantasize about her, but we stand no chance. Only the strongest young cultivators from the Yan Clan can be a good match for her.”
“I see, she must be incredible.” said Lin Feng. He was impressed, being a cultivator at the very top of the Zun Qi layer before being twenty-five was amazing, but in the great world those things didn’t seem as astonishing. Lin Feng had even heard of beasts which were born with the strength of the Tian Qi layer, they didn’t even need to gather experience to become Zun level beasts, which meant they could easily turn into humans if they wanted. However, he had also heard of some incredible beasts which started very weak, but given enough time, they were even more terrifying.
This seemed to be a law of the universe. If people relied on their own strength and luck to become stronger, it would bring about better results than by relying on a powerful and rich family to take pills or solely relying on a blood heritage.
“Brother, what if I want to see Miss Lin Xue? What do I have to do?” asked Lin Feng.
“That’s difficult to say. Miss Lin Xue is studying deployment spells. Unless she comes out now, you’ll have to wait to see her.” replied that guy smiling. “Of course, if someone takes you in, you might see her sooner.”
“Let me in?” asked Lin Feng. That was a good idea. Since he wanted to get close to her, he had to get into the buildings first.
“Thank you for helping me.” said Lin Feng smiling. The guy smiled and shook his head, “So you really want to get in, I can only wish you good luck! I’m off.”
After that guy left, Lin Feng didn’t leave, instead he leant against a wall and closed his eyes. If anyone walked by, they’d probably assume he was asleep.
Lin Feng finally opened his eyes after Mu Qing Ying and the others came back. Then, he approached Mu Qing Ying.
Mu Qing Ying frowned when she saw Lin Feng, was Lin Feng purposely preventing her from walking forwards?
“Miss Qing Ying, can you take me inside the Mu Clan?” asked Lin Feng to Mu Qing Ying.
“Eh?” the people next to her frowned and released Qi. One of them even shouted, “Move away!”
Mu Qing Ying waved and said, “For what reason?” (Editor note: It was translated to say, “One reason?” If anyone understands what that means, I’ll consider changing it)
Lin Feng nodded. He moved back a few steps and then knelt. Then, he raised his hands and released fire strength. Mu Qing Ying didn’t think Lin Feng wanted to attack her, so she continued walking and passed in front of him. But then a light caught her attention, making her turn her head back to see Lin Feng carving marks.
“Deployment spell.” Mu Qing Ying seemed surprised. Lin Feng was still carving marks until holy marks formed. Then he shook his hand and fire emerged from the marks.
Lin Feng raised his head and looked at Mu Qing Ying.
“Since you’re so honest, you can become one of my guards. Come with me.” said Mu Qing Ying, walking towards the governmental buildings. Lin Feng lowered his head and looked at the fire marks, smiling indifferently. Then he stood up and followed Mu Qing Ying.
“You’re lucky.” said one of the young men in a cold way. “A small deployment spell made of only a few holy marks is nothing. In the Mu Clan, just about anyone can become a guard.”
Lin Feng ignored him and continued to follow Mu Qing Ying.
After entering the governmental buildings, his deployment marks outside became wider and wider. They looked mysterious, but unfortunately, Mu Qing Ying didn’t have the patience to watch.
In the governmental buildings of the Mu Clan, Mu Qing Ying took Lin Feng to a courtyard. There, a cultivator of the ninth Zun Qi layer came to Mu Qing Ying and bowed, “Miss Qing Ying.”
The Mu Clan was a large clan, so there were many people who had a similar social status as Mu Qing Ying.
“Mu Xiao, that’s my new guard, please arrange everything for him.” said Mu Qing Ying to that person, then she continued walking.
Mu Xiao nodded and smiled at Lin Feng, “Not bad, Miss Qing Ying hasn’t recruited any new guards for a while. What’s your name?”
“Lin Feng, this courtyard is only an outside one, but it’s where her guards stay. I’m the leader of the guards, Mu Xiao. That path leads to the inner courtyard where the noble young men and women live. We are not allowed to go there without permission, you must remember that.” Mu Xiao quickly explained to Lin Feng.
“I became a guard.” thought Lin Feng speechlessly. He wouldn’t have the opportunity to meet Lin Xue that way. Now he needed to improve his social status to see her.
“It seems like it’ll take some time.” thought Lin Feng. He didn’t feel dispirited though, now that he was in the governmental buildings, his chances of meeting Lin Xue by chance were still higher.
Mu Xiao found a place to live for Lin Feng. Even though they were Mu Qing Ying’s guards, they had nothing to do if she didn’t leave the clan’s territory. With that free time, Lin Feng just practiced cultivation, sometimes he would chat with the other guards, trying to learn useful things from them. He quickly became acquainted with many of them. Besides, Lin Feng also found out that many of the guards were attracted to Mu Qing Ying, but nobody had confessed to her. Concerning Mu Lin Xue, they just said that she was way too incredible and that she didn’t mix with people like them.
Lin Feng had been in the governmental buildings for ten days now, but he still hadn’t seen Mu Lin Xue. He had seen Mu Qing Ying only a few times too. Lin Feng wasn’t too surprised though, it was because the great tournament at Gold-Fire Tower would start in six months. Young men and women who were younger than thirty years old could participate, and if they did well, they could become disciples of the Gold-Fire Tower and would obtain even more weapon manufacturing techniques. According to legends, the Gold-Fire Tower had a Great Scholastic Master of Weapon Manufacturing Arts.
Apart from the opportunity to become disciples of the Gold-Fire Tower, those who would rank amongst the best ones could also obtain incredible imperial weapons and powerful types of fire.
Lin Feng still wondered why Muyi had asked him to get close to Mu Lin Xue. Was it because of the tournament? How could he help if so? Did he want Lin Feng to help Lin Xue learn deployment spells?
Lin Feng was sunbathing in the courtyard and chatting with all the guards. It was relaxing, the guards were nice and didn’t act arrogantly with him. Lin Feng preferred those kinds of people the most.
“Miss Qing Ying is here.” said Mu Xiao. Everybody stood up and looked at her, sneaking glances at her stunning figure. It wasn’t that surprising that they all fantasized about her.
“I have a deployment spell, try and carve it.” said Mu Qing Ying, giving a book to Mu Xiao. Then, she looked at Lin Feng and said, “I know you’re interested in deployment spells, which is why I took you in as a guard, but don’t relax too much. If in a few months, your deployment spells are like the one from the other day, then I’ll fire you. The Mu Clan doesn’t work with pieces of trash, and that goes double for me.”
With that, Qing Ying turned around and left. Mu Xiao smiled at Lin Feng and said, “Lin Feng, Miss Qing Ying asked me if you had asked us for help with your deployment spells, so I told her the truth.”
“That’s no problem.” said Lin Feng smiling. Did he need them to teach him anything?
