PMG Chapter 692: Gathering
The emperor slowly turned around and looked at Lin Feng.
“Lin Feng from Xue Yue, you finished at the very top of the rankings, you are the most dazzling young cultivator of Xue Yu. You are the pride of our empire, Dragon Mountain. Thanks to you we are stronger than any other empire in Xue Yu. Thank you!” said the emperor bowing in front of Lin Feng. Lin Feng was the champion of the competition!
“Lin Feng!” The crowd was astonished! The first one was Lin Feng?
They looked at Lin Feng in the sky and had the impression that they were dreaming. They would have never thought that Lin Feng would finish first… Who had?
“Lin Feng, you are the Chi Xie Marquis of Xue Yue and I am the emperor of Dragon Mountain. From now on, I grant you the title of Chi Xie King of Dragon Mountain, and I also grant you the title of Ruler of Xue Yue. I will send people to Xue Yue with you and they will declare those things to the public. From now, you don’t need to pay tributes to the imperial family of Xue Yue. You and the king of Xue Yue are on equal footing.” said the emperor. He was attributing a special title to Lin Feng and making him a noble in the entire empire. Lin Feng had refused to join the Nine Cloud Swords Sect, the emperor was very happy, so he granted a special title to Lin Feng. He respected Lin Feng, Xue Yue was a country under the jurisdiction of Dragon Mountain so the emperor held the utmost power. Even though he didn’t get involved in Xue Yue’s affairs, he could still grant Lin Feng a special title in Xue Yue.
That was a way to protect Lin Feng from everybody else. Nobody could give him any order in Xue Yue, not even the king.
“Thank you.” said Lin Feng. He was now the ruler of Xue Yue, not bad. (Just a typical Tuesday for our Lin Feng)
The crowd was shivering. Lin Feng had become the ruler of Xue Yue, his status was the same as that of the king of Xue Yue.
“Ruler….” whispered Huo Shi Yun… That young man was farther and farther from her. .
“Alright, come down everybody, don’t be shy.” said the emperor. He didn’t look as solemn and respectful as a moment before, he look friendly now. At the same time, he jumped towards Lin Feng and said, “Lin Feng, what do you intend to do now?”
“I am going to go back to Xue Yue.” said Lin Feng. He hadn’t gone back for such a long time, his family and everybody else were probably very worried.
“Alright, I will send Lan Shan with you.” said the emperor. He then turned back to Lan Shan and said, “Lan Shan, the mission is yours!”
“No problem.” said Ruo Lan Shan nodding. He then looked at Lin Feng and said, “Congratulations.”
“Mister, you brought me to Dragon Mountain, thank you.” said Lin Feng extremely politely.
“Don’t call me “mister” anymore, please. I don’t deserve it. You are so strong… Keep up the good work. Jian Chen came back to Dragon Mountain after the competition and is still practicing cultivation, you will all have an incredible future.”
Ruo Lan Shan obeyed to the emperor, Lin Feng was the most dazzling cultivator at the competition so the emperor wanted everything to be perfect for him.
“You’re going back…?” asked Tang You You.
“Yes.” said Lin Feng nodding.
“Oh…” Tang You You forced herself to smile, she was sad. Then she added, “Take care.”
“You too. We will see each other in three months.”
“So you’re not going to stay with us, instead you’re abandoning us…” said Qing Meng Xin smiling. She was crossing her arms on her chest.
Abandoning? Lin Feng smiled wryly and said, “I left Xue Yue a long time ago, I must go back. We will see each other in three months, alright?”
“You might not pay attention to me anymore then.” joked Qing Meng Xin. Lin Feng smiled wryly and said, “Don’t worry, I will never forget such a beautiful woman.”
“Hehe, you know how to make girl happy…” said Qing Meng Xin in a seducing way.
Behind them was Tang You You’s father and Qing Meng Xin’s teacher, but they didn’t immediately bother them when they saw that they were talking to Lin Feng.
Tang You You’s father had never seen his daughter act so friendly to anyone. Besides, Qing Meng Xin was usually so seductive, no men could resist her. But now Lin Feng could and Qing Meng Xin was his friend. She was friends with the great champion of the Great Competition of Xue Yu. Lin Feng wasn’t weak at all.
“Lin Feng, if you have the opportunity, come back to us.” said Jun Mo Xi. The crowd was stupefied, they hadn’t thought that all those geniuses would be such good friends, how incredible.
“I will come for a walk if I have the time.” said Lin Feng. He was sad to leave too. He wasn’t insensitive, they had gone through so much together.
“Get lost.” said someone at that moment. It was a familiar voice that resonated in Lin Feng’s ears. He turned his head and saw someone, a man was trying to force a girl to hug him.
“Huo Shi Yu, don’t force me to be even more violent.” said Cui Wu Xin coldly.
“You’re done.” said Huo Shi Yun to Cui Wu Xin. Cui Wu Xin was surprised and retorted, while smiling, “I’m done? How could you say that? Are you dreaming? My brother is here, how could anything happen?”
“I’m here.” Cui Wu Xin turned around saw silhouette land next to him. He was even more surprised.
Lin Feng was stronger than his brother Cui Wu Ming.
“Lin Feng.” Cui Wu Ming stuttered. In the past Lin Feng couldn’t rival with him, but now he could only look up at him.
“Is he your real brother?” asked Lin Feng, pointing at Cui Wu Xin.
“No, he’s not.” said Cui Wu Ming shaking his head.
“Get lost.” said Lin Feng, Cui Wu Ming had no words.
“Lin Feng, I’m taking Cui Wu Xin away, so forget about what happened.”
“No.” said Lin Feng coldly. He then looked at Huo Shi Yun and said, “What do you want me to do to him?”
“You decide.” said Huo Shi Yun while staring at Lin Feng, as if she had forgotten about Cui Wu Xin. In the past Lin Feng had left and she never heard about him again.
“Kacha!” Suddenly a dazzling light that looked like a sun appeared on Cui Wu Xin’s body.
“Nine Sun skill, are you a member of the Huo Clan?!” asked Cui Wu Ming. He didn’t understand.
“Shi Yun is my little sister. How could I not kill him?” said Lin Feng to Cui Wu Ming, he hadn’t realized… He then lowered his head and said, “You’re right.”
“Hmph, you understand, that’s all that matters.” said Lin Feng coldly. Immediately after he rose up in the air.
Huo Shi Yun was surprised. she looked at Lin Feng leaving again. Some tears appeared in her eyes, little sister?
“Jun Mo Xi, help me take care of my little sister.”
Huo Shi Yun looked at Lin Feng and Jun Mo Xi. Jun Mo Xi nodded but Huo Shi Yun seemed like she heard nothing, she just blankly stared at them. Then Lin Feng left on his beast moving so fast that whistling sounds spread in the air.
Lin Feng had appeared so abruptly and had disappeared again so abruptly.
Huo Jiu Yang sighed, life was intriguing sometimes… Lin Feng had helped them once again, he had helped Huo Shi Yun once again, and he made her cry once again.
Many people were watching Lin Feng leave.
“I have some things to do too. We’ll see each other in three months.” said someone at that moment. Yun Fei Yang then jumped onto a ferocious, wild beast and left. Nobody knew where he was going!
