PMG Chapter 2276: Delicate Relations
Edited by RED
Jing took Lin Feng to a bamboo forest by a lake, a place where she relaxed. It was beautiful, there was nature, and energies didn’t propagate easily there. Unless someone shouted extremely loudly, nobody could overhear what was said there.
“How is Qing Feng?” asked Lin Feng. The old man of the Animal World and Lin Feng had had a long conversation, he wanted Lin Feng to take care of her.
“She’s here in the Void Phoenix Clan, but she has a special social status here, so she feels awkward,” said Jing. “My mother loves Qing Feng very much. However, my father doesn’t like seeing her next to our mother. There are some internal problems in the Void Phoenix Clan. Qing Feng’s position is delicate. But she’s a Saint’s disciple, so nobody dares do anything to her.”
Lin Feng nodded. Qing Feng was Saint Shi Jue Lao Xian’s disciple. If Shi Jue Lao Xian was there, even a Holy Sage Ruler Clan couldn’t do much to her.
“Since it’s that way, let Qing Feng leave the Void Phoenix Clan, why does she need to stay here?” asked Lin Feng.
“Why doesn’t she leave? Her blood strength can improve in the Void Phoenix Clan. If the Void Phoenix Clan acknowledges her, she could become an incredibly godly phoenix. She could turn into an ancient phoenix and have an immortal body. Even though Shi Jue Lao Xian is a Saint, he can’t help Qing Feng with that. It’s why our mother wanted her to come back, the most important reason. If she stayed with her father, her perspectives would be limited, too.” said Jing.
“So, why can’t the Void Phoenix Clan acknowledge her now?” asked Lin Feng, frowning.
“My father was tolerant of my mother in the past. He even joined the Void Phoenix Clan. It was a big sacrifice. The Void Phoenix Clan owes a lot to my father. After all, he is a genius, and in the Northwest Area, he’s always been considered as such. Now he’s a member of the Fire Shrine and a half Saint, he’ll definitely become a real Saint at some point. You can imagine his social position within the Void Phoenix Clan,” said Jing slowly.
Lin Feng was perplexed. Such an incredible genius joined the Void Phoenix Clan, that was indeed a sacrifice, and quite beneficial for the Void Phoenix Clan.
Fire Shrine, thought Lin Feng glumly. He said to Jing, “So what do you think? Are you on your mother’s side, or your father’s side?”
“I’m Feng’s sister. I wish the best for her. And I don’t care about the elders’ stories…” said Jing.
“Alright,” said Lin Feng nodding. Jing didn’t care. She hoped Feng would be fine.
“And you? Why did you come here?” asked Jing to Lin Feng coldly.
“I came to see how Qing Feng was doing. I’m worried about her,” said Lin Feng calmly.
“You’re worried? Don’t try to take me with you,” said Jing icily.
Lin Feng laughed and said, “Women are beautiful when they smile. When I was a cauldron, you looked even more beautiful.”
“Lin Feng, don’t think I won’t dare attack you because of Feng,” Jing said with murder in her eyes.
“You think you can do anything to me?” Lin Feng smiled. Jing was surprised. Indeed, this guy had ranked first at the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds. So many years had passed, and she couldn’t see his cultivation level anymore. How strong was he now?
“How strong are you now?” asked Jing, curious.
“Try and you’ll see,” said Lin Feng calmly. Jing released a terrifying energy which filled the air. An ice-cold sword appeared, white lights streaked across the sky. She didn’t hold back; that sword sliced straight towards Lin Feng’s neck, and it also contained her most terrifying fire energies!
Lin Feng stretched out his hand and grabbed the incoming sword without anything happening to him.
Jing was astonished and groaned icily. This guy had become too strong.
“Break!” said Lin Feng.
Instantly, clear and melodious breaking sounds spread in the air… the ice-cold fire sword broke apart and turned to ashes. Jing lowered her eyes and looked at the pieces of sword on the ground. She was shaking. How astonishing… There was such a big difference between them…
She hadn’t stopped practicing cultivation during the last ten years, she was now at the top of the Di Qi layer. She could easily kill ordinary Celestial Emperors. But in front of Lin Feng, she felt so weak.
Then, Jing laughed and said, “I have a way.”
“What?” said Lin Feng looking at Jing.
“Since you came here, and your fighting abilities are so incredible, if you talk about love with Qing Feng, thanks to you, her social status could rise,” said Jing suddenly.
Lin Feng said, “The Void Phoenix Clan is a Holy Sage Ruler Clan, there are many strong cultivators. Even though I’m a strong cultivator, I can’t help Qing Feng rise up in the hierarchy of the group.”
“Holy Sage Ruler Clans such as the Void Phoenix Clan don’t really attach importance to anyone except Saints, and people who have the potential to become saints. They don’t care about anyone else. Therefore, my father’s position is really high, and you have the potential to become a Saint. If you prove it, things would be different,” said Jing slowly.
Lin Feng nodded. Indeed, for Holy Sage Ruler Clans, Saints were important, or people who were about to become Saints. Saint Emperors were also very useful to them.
Clans, sects, and all other powerful groups in the world weren’t interested in average strength, they were interested in being the strongest. A Saint could destroy a whole group of Saint Emperors instantly.
“Alright, take me to Qing Feng now,” said Lin Feng. Jing nodded. They both left the bamboo forest and left her residence. As soon as they left the residence, they bumped into a group of strong cultivators who were waiting for them. Among them was the young man who had just taken Lin Feng there.
“Leave now, there’s nothing to see.” said Jing indifferently. However, those people’s silhouettes flickered. The leader of the group was a young man, staring at Lin Feng icily. His Qi was in a chaotic state and surged towards Lin Feng.
“Ao Feng, how insolent! I told you to leave!” said Jing icily.
“It’s the Void Phoenix Clan here, strangers can’t come in and out as they wish. Who is he?” asked Ao Feng, staring coldly at Lin Feng.
“Piss off!” said Jing icily.
Ao Feng’s face stiffened, but he looked at Jing and said, “Miss Jing, come to see the elder. He broke through to the Tian Di layer seven days ago. He controls nine abstruse flames strength, I hope you understand what it means.”
Then, Ao Feng turned around and left with the crowd. Lin Feng was stupefied and asked, “Huo Xing Zi is the young man who appeared at the end of the Meeting of the Continent of the Nine Clouds last time? From the Fire Shrine?”
“That’s him. He’s extremely strong, extremely talented. He used the Nine Celestial Abstruse Flames Shrine Deployment Spell to break through to the Di Qi layer. His teacher and my father are of the same lineage; they were fellow disciples, so they hope I will marry him,” said Jing icily.
“The Void Phoenix Clan must be happy about that…” whispered Lin Feng. Jing glanced at him coldly. Of course the Void Phoenix Clan was happy about it! It would help them develop an even deeper relation with the Fire Shrine!
Shrines were paramount groups in the world!
Jing brought Lin Feng to another palace. Qing Feng was inside. When she saw Lin Feng, she didn’t recognize him, he had changed his face and Qi.
“Qing Feng, it’s me!” said Lin Feng, changing his face. Qing Feng began to blurt out “Lin-”
“Shush!” Lin Feng immediately put his hand on her mouth. Qing Feng was stupefied. She nodded, but looked alarmed.
“Are you about to go to the Snow Clan?” Qing Feng asked Lin Feng. The twenty-year period was almost over. Saint Shi Jue Lao Xian and Lin Feng had an agreement.
“Yes,” said Lin Feng nodded.
“Alright, I’ll inform him that you’re here already,” said Qing Feng.
Lin Feng shook his head. “I’ve already informed him. I came here for you.”
“For me?” Qing Feng’s eyes twinkled.
“Yes, your father wants me to take care of you, so I have to take good care of you,” Lin Feng grinned. Her cheeks became hot. She looked at Lin Feng, what was wrong with him?
“I can take care of myself,” whispered Qing Feng. But she looked and sounded too cute.
“Don’t be stubborn,” said Jing, rolling her eyes, “Didn’t you decide to come to the Imperial Court of the Continent of the Nine Clouds for this guy? Now he’s here for you, and he came from far away.”
“Who said that?” Qing Feng blushed.
Lin Feng laughed, “You don’t want me to take care of you?”
Qing Feng looked at Lin Feng, she had beautiful eyes. Her ears burned, “You…”
At that moment, Qing Feng looked like a little innocent girl. Lin Feng and Jing smiled widely. She had always felt that way, but she had always refused to say anything.
