PMG Chapter 2218: Pressure from the Shrines’ Leaders
Edited by RED
The situation wasn’t as simple as what the Diviner had told Lin Feng. Maybe he didn’t want Lin Feng to feel pressured. The Destiny Wheel had rotated again, it was the second time in recent history. The other Shrines were extremely nervous. If Forbidden People became strong, wouldn’t it lead to another terrifying war, like back in the days?
Therefore, the Shrines’ leaders didn’t want such a thing to happen again. The other Shrines’ leaders came to the Fortune Shrine and chatted with the leader of the Fortune Shrine; it was an invisible and intangible form of pressure. All of them were terrifyingly strong. Who knew? Maybe they would go insane? Even though they were chatting about everything like good old friends, nobody could guarantee they weren’t going to go crazy and attack.
“So many days have passed and you still want to see people from the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds,” said the leader of the Fortune Shrine. All the other Shrines’ leaders were there again.
“Of course, you took someone away. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have stayed here,” replied one of them, smiling calmly. He actually sounded quite nice.
“Alright, since you want to see them, no problem. But I have to say something. This time, we organized the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds and those finished in the top ten of the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds are now authentic disciples of the Fortune Shrine. If you kill the cultivators of the top ten, we’ll have to settle accounts,” said the old man of the Fortune Shrine calmly. Face was important for these people.
“You understand me, right?” said the leader of the Fortune Shrine.
“What do you want?” asked the leader of the Demon Shrine. He looked like a peerless demon, staring at the leader of the Fortune Shrine.
“Very simple, everybody, call your core disciples, if you kill our disciples, then we’ll kill yours. One life for one life. That way, the Fortune Shrine will not lose face,” said the leader of the Fortune Shrine calmly.
All the leaders looked pensive. If there was really a Forbidden Person in the Fortune Shrine, then losing ten people was fine, but if there were none in the Fortune Shrine, then losing core disciples would be a tragedy.
“Alright.” said the leader of the Fire Shrine. His eyes were filled with scorching hot flames, but he sounded ice-cold.
“I agree, too,” said another leader. He wanted to see if the leader of the Fortune Shrine would dare hand someone over.
“Alright, some come with me,” said the leader of the Fortune Shrine calmly.
Their silhouettes flickered and they disappeared from there.
In the starlit sky, someone was seated cross-legged, bathing in starlight. At that moment, someone wearing white clothes slowly appeared in front of him. He opened his eyes and smiled. “Master!”
“Lin Feng, many years ago, I told you that if you ever came to the Shrine, I’d take you as my disciple. Even though you’re not necessarily my disciple, you can call me teacher,” said the Diviner smiling gently.
Lin Feng smiled and nodded. “Teacher!”
“Alright.” said the Diviner smiling, “Lin Feng, the leader of the Shrine told us that the other Shrines aren’t going to give up. They want to see the top ten cultivators of the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds.”
Lin Feng frowned but tried to keep calm. No matter what, the Fortune Shrine was probably going to ensure their safety, so he didn’t need to worry.
“Actually, the leader managed to come to an agreement with them. If we show them the top ten cultivators, then, they have to bring some of their core disciples as well. If they kill one of you, we’ll kill their core disciples. Therefore, we’ll see if they’re ready to take risks,” said the Diviner.
Lin Feng remained silent. That was a big bet. Would the other Shrines dare take risks?
The Diviner didn’t seem worried though, he smiled and said, “Lin Feng, the Shrine has already organized everything. Everything will be fine, but we still have to be vigilant. What kind of cloning technique do you know?”
“Three-Lives Scriptures,” Lin Feng replied honestly. His new biggest secret was that he had a Forbidden Body, and the Diviner knew that. His life was in the Fortune Shrine’s hands. Therefore, he didn’t hide anything from them. They wanted to protect him and help him rise.
“Alright, leave a clone here and come with your real body. After all, if you made a clone go, they’d notice it immediately and things could deteriorate,” said the Diviner after remaining silent for a few seconds. He was amazed on the inside, however. Lin Feng had studied the Three Lives Scriptures! He had really started walking on the path of a Forbidden Person!
In the ancient days, after the great war, a few strong cultivators had started rising, and the Three Lives Emperor was one of them back then!
Lin Feng left a clone behind and gathered with the others. The Diviner appeared later, not arriving with Lin Feng. That way, nobody would know that Lin Feng and the Diviner were close, not even people from the Fortune Shrine themselves.
Their group gathered in a celestial palace. When the strong cultivators arrived and saw the geniuses, the geniuses all shuddered.
How strong!, thought Lin Feng when he saw them. One of them looked like a peerless demon god. People would submit just by looking at him.
“How come someone is missing?” asked someone coldly. Indeed, someone was missing from the top ten cultivators. Chu Chun Qiu wasn’t there.
I guess the teachers did that on purpose to make them think Chu Chun Qiu is the Forbidden Person…, thought Lin Feng.
“He’s not a disciple of the Fortune Shrine anymore so he isn’t here,” said the leader of the Fortune Shrine calmly.
“What does that mean?”
“Your people chased him so he didn’t feel safe in the Fortune Shrine. He decided to leave after that. So we took him to the Supreme Animal World,” said the leader of the Fortune Shrine calmly.
The outsiders were astonished: Supreme Animal World?
“He went to the Supreme Animal World?” asked the leader of the Ice Shrine coldly.
“Ganges Time, Supreme Animal World’s Godly Forbidden territory,” replied the leader of the Fortune Shrine. The crowd was astounded.
“You’re insane!” said the leader of the Ice Shrine coldly.
“I don’t believe you,” added the leader of the Demon Shrine.
The leader of the Fortune Shrine smiled and waved his hand. Instantly, lights appeared in the sky, and a few silhouettes appeared there. Behind them was the Ganges Time Godly Forbidden territory.
All the leaders’ expressions changed drastically.
“You took Chu Chun Qiu to the Supreme Animal World? How can we be sure it’s him?”
“I’m not sure but anyway, now Chu Chun Qiu has nothing to do with the Fortune Shrine anymore. The nine others are here, so do as you wish. But no matter what you do, if you touch our disciples, the same thing will happen to your disciples,” replied the leader of the Fortune Shrine calmly.
The leaders grunted coldly and stared at Lin Feng and the others.
Ganges Time, Godly Forbidden Territory, what kind of place is that?, wondered Lin Feng. The Fortune Shrine had paid the price to prepare that plan and convince the Shrines’ leaders that Chu Chun Qiu was the one who had made the Destiny Wheel rotate. That way, they would pay attention to Chu Chun Qiu and Lin Feng would be able to become stronger in peace. But as before, he had to be vigilant and remain discreet. The more he displayed his strength, the more people would doubt.
At that moment, something happened in Lin Feng’s mind. In his consciousness, he saw a flatland materialize. In the air was a fire mountain. The leader of the Fire Mountain was there, his eyes filled with flames. Lin Feng’s soul trembled.
“Kneel down!” shouted the leader of the Fire Shrine angrily. Lin Feng’s face stiffened, and his legs shook. However, he steadfastly stood his ground. He was just staring at the man coldly.
The Shrines’ leaders are terrifyingly strong. One glance and they can make you submit, thought Lin Feng. This man could crush his soul and will.
The leader of the Fire Shrine looked at him disdainfully. Lin Feng lowered his head submissively.
“Hmph!” Lin Feng heard some grunt coldly in his mind. Flames flew throughout his soul.
“Leader,” said another voice at that moment. The leader of the Fire Shrine looked at his disciple, startled.
“If you inspect their memories, I do the same. If you find some skills and techniques you weren’t supposed to find, you can’t blame us if anything happens,” said the leader of the Fortune Shrine coldly.
The leader of the Fire Shrine grunted coldly, but he still stopped. Lin Feng’s inner body, however, was still burning. It felt like his soul was burning. The leader of the Fire Shrine looked at him coldly and said, “Reply and tell the truth. If you make one mistake, I don’t care whether my disciple dies, but you’ll die too.”
