PMG Chapter 1601: Hypothesis
“Master Mu En, the Great Celestial Palace of Thoughtfulness is truly and deeply sorry. We hope that we can become friends in the future. If you have any requests, we will do our best to help you.” said Zhou Tian Xiao. He wasn’t willing to kneel though. Lin Feng didn’t give him face so, how could he?
The elders had warned him that he couldn’t be hostile with Lin Feng, that he had to control his anger.
Zhou Tian Xiao wasn’t the only one who was angry, the other members from the Great Celestial Palace of Thoughtfulness were as well. Jin Chen Jun was smiling in a resplendent way though. He hoped those guys wouldn’t get too close to Lin Feng.
“The Great Celestial Palace of Thoughtfulness tried to kill me last time, and they were arrogant. They even broke my illusion deployment spell. Now, I asked you to kneel and show your respect, but since you don’t want to, just piss off!” said Lin Feng impolitely. Zhou Tian Xiao and the others looked dumbstruck. If they went back empty-handed, their superiors would be less than pleased with them.
“If we kneel, will you forgive us and the Great Celestial Palace of Thoughtfulness?” asked Zhou Tian Xiao, closing his eyes as he tried to hold in the anger.
“Kneel and we’ll talk about it afterwards.” said Lin Feng. Lin Feng didn’t think that Zhou Tian Xiao would accept being humiliated like that. Zhou Tian Xiao was much more impressive than Zhou Tian Ruo.
“Alright.” said Zhou Tian Xiao. Then he said to his compatriots, “Kneel down.”
He got down on his knees and lowered his head, “The Great Celestial Palace of Thoughtfulness is infinitely sorry for what we’ve done to you. We hope you can forgive us.”
Even with this, Lin Feng still wasn’t satisfied. Zhou Tian Xiao was kneeling only because he thought Lin Feng was from the Everlasting Palace. He needed to oppress him more, he needed to make him question himself about what it means to be a real cultivator.
Zhou Tian Xiao raised his head, remaining silent as he looked at Lin Feng, waiting for his answer.
Lin Feng smiled and said, “Piss off!”
“Piss off!” Zhou Tian Xiao started fuming with anger. What a humiliation! Flames of fury filled his heart, to the point where it hurt. He had knelt, but Mu En was still telling him to piss off!
He slowly stood up and bowed before Lin Feng, “We disturbed you, but no matter what you think, the Great Celestial Palace of Thoughtfulness is truly sorry. We hope to see you again in the future.”
He bowed before Lin Feng once more and then left with his team. Lin Feng looked at Zhou Tian Xiao, who was expressionless.
“Take care, everyone.” said Jin Chen Jun smiling indifferently. The Great Celestial Palace of Thoughtfulness’ people were on the brink of snapping from anger. If Lin Feng hadn’t been a member of the Everlasting Palace and hadn’t been such a strong deployment spell caster, they would have killed him long ago.
After the cultivators from the Great Celestial Palace of Thoughtfulness left, Jin Chen Jun walked to Lin Feng and asked while smiling, “Master Mu En, do you need me to do anything?”
“Nothing, I just want to practice my deployment spells. Don’t let anyone disturb me again.” said Lin Feng to Jin Chen Jun.
“Alright, I’ll see you later!” said Jin Chen Jun while slowly leaving. After Jin Chen Jun left, Lin Feng frowned, looking rather pensive.
“The Great Celestial Palace of Thoughtfulness sent people to apologize, and they even knelt in front of me. They saw what happened yesterday, I wonder whether it’s a good or bad thing.” thought Lin Feng.
Someone landed next to Lin Feng, it was Muyi.
“What are you thinking about?” asked Muyi, smiling when he saw that Lin Feng looked perplexed.
“I’m thinking about yesterday. The deployment spell was too powerful, I wonder whether…” Lin Feng stopped talking when he saw that Muyi smiled and said, “Indeed, your deployment spell was astonishing, many people will talk about it even farther away from here. Luckily, the Everlasting Palace is in Si Xiang City, which is very far away. News won’t spread that far in such a short time.”
Muyi never asked Lin Feng about the nine great celestial castles, but he had spent so much time with him that he understood that there are some tensions between Lin Feng and Celestial Qi Castle, the Palace of Medicinal Kings and the Great Celestial Palace of Thoughtfulness. Otherwise, Lin Feng wouldn’t have done all that.
“Maybe I’m thinking about it too much, but it’s better to be careful.” said Lin Feng smiling. Even though Si Xiang City was very far away, maybe the Everlasting Palace was still going to hear about it. The nine great celestial castles couldn’t go to the Everlasting Palace to ask about it, but if they learnt that a cultivator of the eighth Zun Qi layer had killed several emperors, then they would send some of their people to see what that was going on.
“You’re right. It’s better to be vigilant and plan ahead.” said Muyi nodding. Even though the nine great celestial castles weren’t as large as the Everlasting Palace, they still had some influence in the region. They had access to some information. There were many ways to figure out that it was Lin Feng, but Lin Feng’s deployment spells were too convincing.
“I’m going to make some more talismans.” said Lin Feng nodding at Muyi. Then, he went back to his room. Muyi looked at Lin Feng’s back as he left, smiling and shaking his head. Lin Feng was very mysterious, but it had nothing to do with Muyi, so he minded his own business. At least, Lin Feng was serious about deployment cultivation and helped him with his own.
Lin Feng spent another calm and peaceful day, nobody came to disturb him.
On the second day, outside of Celestial Qi Castle’s territory, Qi Yun Lei and some people from Qing Di Mountain appeared in the clouds. Qi Yun Sheng and Qi Yu Chen were in the group.
“Master Qi Yun Lei!” said Jin Chen Jun, rising into the sky and bowing. Qi Yun Lei had come back, and because he was a cultivator from the Everlasting Palace, he was well respected. Even though he didn’t have a high social status there, he was still a member.
“Very good, Master Qi Yun Lei and Master Mu En are here at the same time.” thought Jin Chen Jun.
“Yun Lei, you came back!” said Qi Yun Xiao, also rising into the air. He was smiling in a resplendent way. They had the same blood, so they were like brothers.
“Brother Yun Xiao!” said Qi Yun Lei smiling and nodding at everybody, one after the other. Then, they rose up in the air together.
“Yun Lei, how come you didn’t tell me you were coming back?”
“Some things happened at the Everlasting Palace and a lot of people left. Now they’re hunting for someone. I stayed in Qing Di Mountain for a while, and now I thought I had to see how the clan was doing.” said Qi Yun Lei laughing. “Alright, I’ve heard that a deployment spell caster from the Everlasting Palace was here, tell me the details.”
Qi Yun Lei was skeptical. The Everlasting Palace was big, and there were many people. If Mu En had been an ordinary cultivator, having never heard of him would have been normal, however, Mu En, with the strength of the Zun Qi layer, could cast great deployment spells capable of killing emperors and posing a threat to medium-level emperors. There were only a few people like that in the Everlasting Palace and they were very, very famous. However, Mu En wasn’t one of them. Of course, Qi Yun Lei also thought of the possibility that this person had lied about their name when they came there.
“You’ve even heard of that!” said Qi Yun Xiao smiling. Then, he explained everything to Qi Yun Lei, how Lin Feng had cast deployment spells, how Muyi had protected him, etc. After that, Qi Yun Lei frowned even more.
“What’s wrong?” asked Qi Yun Xiao when he saw Qi Yun Lei’s reaction.
“I’m almost sure we don’t have anyone called Master Mu En in the Everlasting Palace, but I need to see him to be sure.” said Qi Yun Lei. Qi Yun Xiao was dumbstruck, they didn’t have anyone called Mu En?
“Yun Lei, think carefully. The issue is of the highest importance. You have to think carefully before we make any final decisions.” said Qi Yun Xiao. He also had doubts at the beginning but because Lin Feng’s deployment spells were so powerful, he no longer doubted anything. Besides, he didn’t want to have Mu En as an enemy, even if he was faking his identity.
“In the Everlasting Palace, we have some Zun level cultivators who can pose a threat to emperors, but the one you’re talking about can even kill medium-level emperors. There are only a few with such talents. I could be wrong though, but when I see him, I’ll tell you.” said Qi Yun Lei honestly.
“Alright, I’ll take you there, but you need to be friendly, and you can’t tell him you’re from the Everlasting Palace.” said Qi Yun Xiao. “Besides, if he’s not from the Everlasting Palace, don’t attack him immediately. We must be careful when dealing with such a strong deployment spell caster.”
“I understand.” said Qi Yun Lei nodding. He was already thinking of ideas to investigate about Mu En. They slowly walked towards Yao Yun Peak, but they were eager to hear what Mu En was going to say.
