PMG Chapter 699: Acceptance
Everybody remained silent, they watched Lin Feng and the king stare down each other. They didn’t know what to think. Back then, Lin Feng had astonished them under the moonlight of the Xiangjiang lake. Now, he was facing the king who was as powerful as him. He was now the ruler of Xue Yue.
Duan Wu Ya was on the king’s side. Back then he had said to Lin Feng that in order to get married with Duan Xin Ye, he had to finish in the top nine. And then in the future, he had to defeat Duan Wu Dao. Only then he would accept. However, now Lin Feng had already accomplished all those things and had even finished first at the Great Competition of Xue Yu. He had come back to Xue Yue as a glorious hero and had become the ruler of Xue Yue. If Lin Feng wanted to get married with Duan Xin Ye, who could refuse? Duan Wu Ya had no reason to do so either.
Lin Feng hadn’t even glanced at Duan Wu Ya. Since the beginning, he knew how Duan Wu Ya was and now he didn’t care about him anymore. He had become the ruler of Xue Yue and Duan Wu Ya was the second prince, Lin Feng’s status was higher than that of Duan Wu Ya so did he need to look at him?
“Hmph.” At that moment, someone groaned coldly and a person in a gray chang pao appeared. That person was coldly staring at Lin Feng. It was She Huan, one of the Imperial Dragon Guards and he was She Qiong’s father. Lin Feng had already seen him in the past. He had tried to kill Lin Feng in the past but Lin Feng was becoming stronger.
“You tiny little insect, do you think that you’ve become a phoenix? You are no match for Xin Ye. She’s a princess.” said She Huan in an extremely cold way, he looked evil. Lin Feng had become the ruler of Xue Yue, how abominable!
Lin Feng slowly turned around and looked at She Huan. His eyes were twinkling with sharp lights, as sharp as swords. She Huan had the feeling that he was being stabbed.
“What do you want? Shut your filthy mouth now. I am the ruler of Xue Yue now, how dare you gesticulate in front of me? Do you want to die?” said Lin Feng extremely aggressively. In a flash, he released a terrifying sword energy which enveloped She Huan’s body. She Huan’s face turned deathly pale, he was sweating cold beads and could barely breathe.
“How dare you!” shouted She Huan furiously. He hadn’t thought that Lin Feng would be so brutal and violent. Besides, he was realizing that Lin Feng was the champion of the Great Competition of Xue Yu and that he had become monstrously strong. In his memories, Lin Feng was still weak.
“Die!” Lin Feng ignored him and shouted furiously. A terrifying “die” word appeared in the air, a terrifying sword energy emerged at the same time and lacerated the atmosphere.
The sword energy then turned into a terrifying sword.
She Qiong looked deathly pale, his face contained no blood anymore. Would Lin Feng kill him?
“Crrr crrrr…” The massive amount of sword energy crashed onto his body. He was so much weaker than Lin Feng. Lin Feng could kill him from kilometers away, could She Huan compete with him? She Huan couldn’t even resist, Lin Feng didn’t even need to move his hands to kill him. In a flash, She Huan was dead.
The sword Qi disappeared and Lin Feng moved back to his initial position. He looked calm and serene as if nothing had happened. The crowd was astonished and their hearts were pounding at full speed. Lin Feng had become so scary.
Becoming the champion of the Great Competition of Xue Yu wasn’t easy… Lin Feng had become a hundred times stronger than before the competition.
Lin Feng had become the ruler of Xue Yue, an officer of the Imperial Snow Dragon Guards couldn’t rival with him anymore. She Huan had overestimated himself. Lin Feng considered as an insect but he died with a breath of effort.
The king and Duan Wu Ya looked emotionless. She Huan had died and they didn’t care at all, in fact, they actually hadn’t cared. They didn’t control the Imperial Snow Dragon Guards, Duan Wu Ya had always dreamt of becoming their leader but had never managed to do so.
Then the king of Xue Yue smiled at Lin Feng in a resplendent way and said, “Lin Feng, now you are the ruler of Xue Yue, you can of course marry Xin Ye. Just choose a date for the wedding. Wu Ya will help organize everything. I hope that you will take care of Xin Ye.” said the king. The crowd was speechless, the king had accepted… Xin Ye and Lin Feng were going to be married.
Of course, if one person could get married with Duan Xin Ye, it had to be Lin Feng. He was the champion of the Great Competition of Xue Yu, everybody knew him. And he was the ruler of Xue Yue. If Lin Feng couldn’t get married with the princess, who could? The crowd thought that the king accepted only because of Lin Feng’s new social status though, ruler of Xue Yue. They had the same power in the country now.
In any case, the king hadn’t thought about it too much, he immediately accepted Lin Feng’s request.
She Huan had died for nothing, he had just courted death and Lin Feng had helped him achieve his aim.
“Thank you.” said Lin Feng bowing in front of the king. The king would become Lin Feng’s father-in-law, he had to be polite to him.
“Hehe, congratulations Lin Feng. You came back as a hero and you are now the ruler of Xue Yue. Now you will get married with a beautiful woman, I, Ruo Lan Shan will definitely come to the wedding for a few drinks.” said Ruo Lan Shan smiling merrily. He had already seen how close Duan Xin Ye and Lin Feng were. A girl as beautiful as the stars and a peerless genius… They were a perfect couple.
“Thank you, I will happily welcome you to my wedding.” said Lin Feng smiling at Ruo Lan Shan.
“Alright, Lin Feng, Your Highness, my mission in Xue Yue is over. I have to go back to Dragon Mountain, I would like the king of Xue Yue to help me with one more thing though. Nake a public announcement to declare Lin Feng’s new title of Ruler of Xue Yue.” said Ruo Lan Shan. Everybody had to know about it. If the king did it himself then Rou Lan Shan could be relieved.
“No need to remind me of that, this is obvious. The entire country will know about it. At the same time, I will also prepare his wedding with my daughter. It will be a big ceremony.” said the king calmly smiling. The crowd slightly nodded, the king didn’t mind that Lin Feng had become the ruler of Xue Yue.
Duan Wu Dao had finished second at the Great Competition of Xue Yu… Lin Feng had finished as the most outstanding cultivator of Xue Yue and of Xue Yu. Everybody had to know.
“We talked too much, Your Highness, Lin Feng, I’m leaving.” said Ruo Lan Shan waving. Immediately after, the people from Dragon Mountain all left. The tulip petals kept flying in the wind.
After Ruo Lan Shan left, the king slowly turned and looked to Lin Feng while smiling, “Lin Feng, you are the Ruler of Xue Yue now, the Imperial Palace is yours to share.”
“Alright, Duan Wu Ya and you can talk about the future now. You shouldn’t need me anymore.” said the king smiling, he then turned around and left.
Duan Wu Ya looked at Lin Feng in a calm and serene way. He looked at Lin Feng with a smile on his face but people didn’t know what he was thinking.
“Lin Feng, I also would like to congratulate you. You are the champion of the Great Competition of Xue Yu and defeated my brother. You met all my requirements, think about a wedding date now.” said Duan Wu Ya slowly and calmly. He even sounded a bit gentle or soft. It seemed like the problems which had arisen before the competition had never happened because he wasn’t aggressive anymore.
“I will talk to her and we will decide together.” said Lin Feng nodding. He then jumped forwards and left. He didn’t look at Duan Wu Ya anymore, it seemed like he didn’t feel like talking to him.
Duan Wu Ya looked at him with a resplendent smile on his face, but nobody knew how he really felt.
People were also pensive around him but then the crowd dispersed. People didn’t understand all those plots and intrigues happening in imperial families.
