Chapter 1938: Great Imperial Palace
"But all of them are new. We'll see how strong they can be," someone else broke in at that moment. Everybody became silent and looked at the person who had said that strangely. He was extremely young, maybe seventeen years old. However, he had an extraordinary Qi. He was drinking fine liquor and eating snacks.
"A young man who isn't even an emperor dares say that! That's a bit arrogant and insolent!" a middle-aged man spoke up. Chu Chun Qiu, Lin Feng, and so on were all incredible cultivators. How did that trivial young man dare talk that way? How arrogant!
"You're only considering the present situation. Have you forgotten about the past? Back then, there were some incredible cultivators in the Imperial Ranking List. For example Feng Shen Tian, his sword attacks were shockingly incredible. He killed geniuses from Ancient Clans without hesitation. He's valiant and heroic. There's also Pei Dong Lai, his purple Qi is a propitious omen. His cosmic energies are terrifying. Those people achieved much more than those people you're talking about," said the young man. The people in the restaurant were all staring at him.
Feng Shen Tian, Pei Dong Lai, and so on really were powerful and influential. They had shaken all of the Holy City. However, they were now great emperors. Those two people were both in the same place: the Great Imperial Palace! The Great Imperial Palace was incredibly powerful, and managed the Imperial Ranking List.
"There are geniuses in every generation. Feng Shen Tian, Pei Dong Lai, and so on are really incredible cultivators. But now they belong to a different world. You can't compare them with people like Chu Chun Qiu, Lin Feng, and the others. And anyway, who says Lin Feng and so on won't surpa.s.s them someday? It's maybe only a matter of time," someone predicted. People of different generations couldn't be compared.
"Hmph! As I see it, anyone who's from the Great Imperial Palace is better than those 'outstanding' people you're talking about. You just keep forgetting about the past," retorted the young man coldly.
As he said that, a woman in a white and silver dress came in, attracting all eyes. Her dress was very tight around her perfect body, and complimented her cleavage. She was very beautiful.
"Miss Yin Yue." When Lin Wu Shang saw that girl, he smiled at her. Miss Yin Yue nodded back at him. It made Wu Shang very happy.
Lin Feng looked at his brother. He could imagine how his brother felt. Young men loved women, and were easily aroused.
"My brother goes out every day for her, right?" said Lin Feng to Xiao Ya telepathically. Xiao Ya laughed.
"It's difficult to compare people of different generations. Feng Shen Tian, Pei Dong Lai, and so on were extremely strong, and now they're even stronger than before, obviously. Are you from the Great Imperial Palace?" asked the young woman to the young man, smiling thinly.
"You are the princess of the Yin Clan. You are experienced and extraordinary! I am Pei Dong Qing from the Great Imperial Palace," the young man introduced himself. He stood up, walked to the young woman and waved to a chair. "Please have a seat, Princess!"
"Oh, so you're Pei Dong Lai's nephew, he's your uncle. No wonder you keep saying good things about him."
"I'm just stating facts, Princess. It has nothing to do with the fact that he's my uncle," said Pei Dong Qing, his smile just a bit strained.
"But you can't help but show off," said the young woman from the Silver Clan. She didn't sit with him , glancing over at Lin Wu Shang and smiling. "Silly boy, you came."
"Hehe!" Lin Wu Shang scratched his hair and giggled in a silly manner. Lin Feng looked at his brother and laughed. His brother loved beautiful women, too. He looked completely different from normal.
"Tell her to have a seat!" said Xiao Ya, glancing at Wu Shang angrily. Wu Shang could be so stupid sometimes, he just let the Princess stand there.
"Yin Yue, please sit!" said Lin Wu Shang, waving at a chair and smiling at Yin Yue.
She sat down and smiled at him. "You seem like you've recovered."
"Of course, I'm strong." said Lin Wu Shang gigling. He didn't even dare look at her in the eyes.
Stop showing off, thought Xiao Ya, rolling her eyes. Wu Shang looked stupid in front of a woman.
"You were injured?" Lin Feng asked his brother.
"Small injury, it wasn't serious," replied Lin Wu Shang.
Lin Feng looked over at Xiao Ya. Xiao Ya told him using telepathy, "Last time in this restaurant, Wu Shang saved her."
When Lin Feng heard Xiao Ya, he understood. No wonder this Yin Clan Princess was so nice to Wu Shang. But he looked so clueless. She was a princess, she didn't need him to save her. Lin Feng had heard about the Great Imperial Palace and the Yin Clan. They had a good reputation in the Holy City.
Surprisingly, Lin Wu Shang was interested in her. That was a lot of pressure. Of course, Lin Feng couldn't control his brother's life, Lin Wu Shang could decide what he wanted to do.
"Lin Wu Shang, you haven't introduced me to these people," hinted Yin Yue, smiling at Wu Shang.
"You already know Xiao Ya, and that's my brother, and that's my sister-in-law," replied Lin Wu Shang, pointing at Lin Feng and Meng Qing.
"Your sister-in-law is so beautiful, she looks like a celestial being. And your brother must be incredible!" said Yin Yue, looking at Lin Feng. Her eyes were really beautiful, with silver lights twinkling in them.
"Of course. He's definitely not less talented than Feng Shen Tian and Pei Dong Lai!" said Lin Wu Shang proudly. He was angry because of the young man who had said that Lin Feng couldn't be compared with people like Pei Dong Qing and so on. Lin Feng was like a G.o.d to his brother.
Pei Dong Qing frowned. He had just invited Yin Yue to sit with him but she hadn't given him face, and now she was sitting with Wu Shang. He was angry now; he was from the Great Imperial Palace, Lin Wu Shang was a n.o.body to him. And now, ridiculously, Wu Shang was comparing his brother with Feng Shen Tian and Pei Dong Lai.
"Ignorant little kid," said Pei Dong Qing indifferently, sipping his drink and saying, "You will probably never see Feng Shen Tian and Pei Dong Lai in your life. You're extremely ignorant, like a frog in a well."
Pei Dong Qing was arrogant, but many people in the restaurant agreed with him. After all, Lin Feng was just a medium-level emperor. Feng Shen Tian and Pei Dong Qing were great emperors and members of the Great Imperial Palace. They were much stronger than a medium-level emperor!
"What about you? We have similar cultivation levels. You're bragging just because you have a strong person in your family," said Lin Wu Shang mockingly. He was fearless, and he wanted to impress Yin Yue, too! Pei Dong Qing was a n.o.body to Wu Shang, and he wouldn't let him criticize his brother.
When Pei Dong Qing heard Lin Wu Shang, he laughed coldly. He stood up and walked over to Wu Shang. He smiled coldly and said, "I'd like to ask you something. Which ancient clan are you from? We'll see why you dare act that arrogantly."
"Do I need to tell you?" reb.u.t.ted Lin Wu Shang disdainfully. Pei Dong Qing despised him, did he need to reply to him?
"Don't be ashamed of your background," retorted Pei Dong Qing mockingly.
"Using one's social status to compare oneself is a very bad habit," said someone at that moment. That person was also having a drink. Pei Dong Qing looked at him icily. It was a middle-aged man, very clean, who looked like he took care of himself. He had an ancient sword on his back.
"Who are you?" demanded Pei Dong Qing sharply.
The middle-aged slowly put his gla.s.s down, and turned his head to Pei Dong Qing. Pei Dong Qing's eyes suddenly felt extremely sore. He instantly lowered his head and his heart started pounding. The middle-aged man stood up and came over to him.
"Great Emperor Liu Yun, he was known as the Sword Emperor Liu Yun back in the days!" The crowd was shocked when someone recognized him.
"Great Emperor Liu Yun!" Pei Dong Qing was stunned. He glanced at the man, but the great emperor ignored him.
He walked over to Lin Feng and the others. He smiled at Lin Feng, "May I sit here?"
Pei Dong Qing was furious. He groaned icily and walked past them, saying, "There will definitely be some change."
Pei Dong Qing left the restaurant quickly. People were stupefied and stared at Great Emperor Liu Yun. Surprisingly, he wanted to sit with Lin Feng, Lin Feng definitely wasn't a n.o.body!

Chapter 1939: Wu Shang's Feelings
"Master Liu Yun," said Yin Yue. She stood up, bowed, and smiled with effortless good manners.
"Princess Yin Clan, you're too polite. You're more polite than that little Pei Dong Qing," Great Emperor Liu Yun smiled. He looked at Lin Feng and said, "A year ago, I saw you battle. Very nice, and you understand death Dao strength. At the same cultivation level, you would have won for sure."
Lin Feng wasn't surprised that Great Emperor Liu Yun had seen him battle. Ji Chang's Champion ceremony had attracted strong cultivators from the whole Holy City. Many people knew who he was now.
"Thank you, Master. Please have a seat," Lin Feng nodded at Great Emperor Liu Yun politely.
Great Emperor Liu Yun sat down and said, "But now your Qi seems to have disappeared, as if you hadn't progressed at all. Actually, it even seems like you regressed."
"Master." said a voice from outside the restaurant at that moment. Then, everybody watched another Lin Feng come into the restaurant. His ordinary clone went back into his body and Lin Feng sat down where the clone had been seated.
"I see!" said Great Emperor Liu Yun, smiling in approval. "You're a hero. In your generation, there are Ying Cheng, Ji Chang, Chu Chun Qiu, a few people who have king body types, and you, you are all outstanding."
Yin Yue's eyes twinkled. She looked at Lin Feng and smiled. "You're Lin Feng?"
"Indeed. My brother is Lin Feng!" said Lin Wu Shang when he saw Yin Yue's beautiful eyes were twinkling.
She looked at Wu Shang and said, "No wonder you got angry at Pei Dong Qing, silly boy."
"I've heard that you were really strong and could compete with Ji Chang," said Yin Yue. She was curious about Lin Feng. She smiled and said, "In my clan, the Yin Clan, there is someone called Yin Gu Tian, he's seventh on the Imperial Ranking List. I wonder if you could compete with him."
"I admire clans like yours. If there is an opportunity, I'd love to exchanges views on cultivation with cultivators of your clan," said Lin Feng, smiling calmly. Then, he looked at Great Emperor Liu Yun and raised his gla.s.s, "Master, let's toast."
"Alright, it's a pleasure to toast with a young genius," grinned Great Emperor Liu Yun. They both clinked their gla.s.ses and drank.
But Lin Feng noticed that Lin Wu Shang looked impatient. He smiled at Lin Wu Shang and said, "Wu Shang, go and have a walk with Princess Yin Yue."
When Lin Wu Shang heard Lin Feng, he was surprised. He looked at Yin Yue, but he didn't know what to say. Yin Yue glanced at him and said, "Silly boy, what are you looking at? I'm tired of sitting all the time. Let's go and have a walk."
Yin Yue stood up and left. Lin Wu Shang was surprised, until Xiao Ya kicked him in the leg.
Lin Feng and Liu Yun continued chatting. After that, he left with Meng Qing. Xiao Ya left by herself and went to find Wu Shang.
In the following days, Lin Feng didn't do too much. He normally studied a little bit every day, but this time he stopped his studying and life and death cultivation for a few days.
Meng Qing's progress was great too. Her celestial Qi was extraordinary, and becoming thicker and thicker. She was improving, too!
Tiantai now had great and vast buildings, and covered a large area. Lin Feng also chose a new palace for himself.
There was a waterfall there, and at that moment, Lin Feng and Meng Qing were underneath the waterfall. They gazed into the distance and enjoyed being together.
"Has Wu Shang come back?" asked Meng Qing, looking at the waterfall.
"He hasn't come back for five or six days. He's in love," Lin Feng smiled.
Meng Qing looked at Lin Feng, as surprised as a little girl, "Aren't you worried? After all, Yin Yue is princess from the Yin Clan!"
"Wu Shang is almost twenty years old. I can't control his life. He's like you and me back then. Back then, when I saw you, it was love at first sight. You looked like a celestial being back then, and you never left me," said Lin Feng, caressing Meng Qing's face. He sounded gentle as he remembered those beautiful times.
"I looked like a celestial being, and now?" inquired Meng Qing, smiling at Lin Feng.
"Now you're a G.o.ddess!" declared Lin Feng, putting his arms around her and smiling broadly. They forgot about the cruelty of the cultivation world for a short time, staying happy and carefree.
They both stayed like that for a while. Meng Qing said gently, "Lin Feng, you changed again since you used the lotus. You also seem kinder when you face other people. I've never met Officer Uptala, but I'm sure he was a kind and warm person."
"Indeed. He was a man of righteousness. Unfortunately, the cultivation world is cruel," sighed Lin Feng. Officer Uptala was an incredible and extraordinary person. It was impossible to forget such people.
At that moment, some cosmic energies rose up into the air. Lin Feng turned his head around and looked at his palace. A light beam had appeared, and some cosmic energies were condensing.
"Someone broke through!" Lin Feng was pleasantly surprised. They both stood up and hurried over to the palace's courtyard.
Xiao Chen was surrounded by cosmic energies. He had just broken through to the Huang Qi layer!
"Teacher, Madam, I broke through!" said Ye Chen to Lin Feng and Meng Qing, beaming at them. Finally, he had broken through to the Huang Qi layer with two sorts of cosmic energies!
"Good!" said Lin Feng approvingly. Xiao Chen was pure-hearted, with the heart and mind of a young child, otherwise he would have broken through to the Huang Qi layer much sooner, especially since Lin Feng provided him with lots of resources. After all, when he had recruited Xiao Chen as his disciple back then in Ba Huang, Xiao Chen had already reached the very top of the Zun Qi layer.
At that moment, Wu Shang was still in town, and back in the restaurant. He was with Yin Yue and Xiao Ya. There was also a young man with them wearing silver clothes. His robe was sparkling. He looked at Wu Shang unhappily.
"It's my grandfather's birthday, I'm off," said Yin Yue to Wu Shang.
"Oh," replied Wu Shang simply.
This moron, Xiao Ya thought angrily.
"I'm off," said Yin Yue again.
"Oh." replied Lin Wu Shang again. Xiao Ya ground her teeth. Yin Yue also looked angry. She glanced at Wu Shang angrily and stood up. But then she smiled, turned around and left with the young man.
"It's your grandfather's birthday, I'll come and congratulate him then!" shouted Lin Wu Shang. He suddenly stood up and ran after Yin Yue. Yin Yue's beautiful eyes finally twinkled. She looked happy and smiled. She said, "Alright, his birthday is in five days, don't forget the date!"
"Alright, I'll be there!" said Lin Wu Shang, nodding repeatedly.
"Hmph! Yin Yue, stop talking to that moron. And who does he think he is to come and congratulate our grandfather on his birthday?" said the young man. Then, he grabbed Yin Yue's hand and walked away. Lin Wu Shang was stunned and furious.
"What are you looking at, you moron!" said Xiao Ya angrily. She was even angrier than Wu Shang.
"Hehe," Lin Wu Shang scratched his head and giggled stupidly. "Sis, are you in love with Yin Yue?"
"When you're in front of Yin Yue, you look really stupid. You've spent days with her, you don't even hold hands. I feel ashamed to know you!" said Xiao Ya, rolling her eyes.
"That's enough, sis!" said Wu Shang, he put his hands on her shoulders and smiled, "Go, let's go and find my brother."
"Hmph! You need your brother to help you, you're such a baby!" said Xiao Ya, rolling her eyes again.
"Yin Yue is from the Yin Clan. Her grandfather must be an incredible person. If I go alone, he won't pay attention to me. If my brother comes, he'll recognize him!" said Lin Wu Shang like a show-off.
"You're really shameless. You better prepare a great gift for him. Why would he follow you?" Xiao Ya stuck out her tongue. Since Lin Wu Shang liked Yin Yue, he wanted to bring Lin Feng to the Yin Clan to show he had power, but Lin Feng wasn't strong enough yet. And she had a bad premonition …
PMG Chapter 1940
Chapter 1940: Birthday Party
Lin Wu Shang and Xiao Ya went back to the university and found Lin Feng.
"Bro!" Lin Feng couldn't even see his brother yet, but heard him even before Wu Shang arrived. Lin Feng looked at him sternly. "Xiao Chen has already broken through to the Huang Qi layer. When will you?"
"Xiao Chen broke through?" Lin Wu Shang looked over at Ye Chen, smiled and said, "Bro, I'm not in a rush. I need your help."
Lin Feng looked at Lin Wu Shang's silly smile, he could already guess what he wanted. He smiled and asked, "Is it related to Yin Yue?"
"Bro, Wu Shang is a little b.a.s.t.a.r.d. He spent days with Yin Yue, but he has failed miserably. He lost face," said Xiao Ya, looking at Wu Shang disdainfully. Lin Feng was speechless. She could be really evil sometimes. But even if Wu Shang managed to go out with Yin Yue, would the Yin Clan accept their relationship?
"What do you need me to do?" asked Lin Feng with a smile yet not a smile, looking at Wu Shang.
Wu Shang scratched his head and said, "Bro, it will soon be the birthday of Yin Yue's grandfather. I want to go and congratulate him. Can you come with me?"
"Yin Yue's grandfather?" Lin Feng's eyes twinkled. He remained silent for a few seconds. Yin Yue was the Princess of the Yin Clan. Her grandfather was probably an incredible cultivator. Wu Shang liked Yin Yue. And Lin Feng, as Wu Shang's older brother, had to support and help him.
"Alright, I'll come with you," Lin Feng agreed with an internal sigh.
"Thank you, bro!" grinned Wu Shang, before running away excitedly. Lin Feng looked at his brother from behind and could only smile. Wu Shang was going to go through hardships in the future…
"Xiao Ya, what do you think about Yin Yue?" asked Lin Feng after Wu Shang left. Even though Xiao Ya played around with Wu Shang and bullied him, she was a loving and tender person.
"She's cute. Don't worry," said Xiao Ya. She knew what Lin Feng was thinking. Lin Feng nodded. Xiao Ya ran off to Ye Xue. Lin Feng looked at them and smiled wryly. He said to Meng Qing, "I feel old. I don't feel like playing around like them anymore."
Meng Qing glanced at Lin Feng, rearranged his clothing and smiled gently. "You've been through a lot. You're a mature man now, not a kid anymore."
"Maybe!" said Lin Feng smiling and nodding, "By the way, I have a prisoner, I'll release her now."
Lin Feng suddenly remembered someone. He stretched his hand and waved it. A golden tower appeared and became gigantic. There was a woman inside it, but she didn't look as proud as she had in the past. When he released her, she was astonished. She glanced around, not recognizing the place. Everything was different!
Qi Jiao Jiao didn't look like a spoiled princess anymore, nor as happy and proud as in the past. She looked dispirited after being imprisoned for so many years.
"I'll kill you!" After being stunned for a few seconds, Qi Jiao Jiao suddenly looked furious. She released some empty s.p.a.ce abstruse energies, which turned into a sharp empty s.p.a.ce sword that flashed towards Lin Feng.
The sharp sword crashed onto Lin Feng's body… and broke apart instantly.
Lin Feng looked at her calmly and sighed. Poor girl. If the Qi Clan hadn't done anything to him back then, he wouldn't have imprisoned her for so many years.
"I destroyed the Qi Clan and the Celestial Qi Castle in the great world. You will never be able to get your revenge in this life. You should find a peaceful place to go live," Lin Feng said calmly.
Qi Jiao Jiao was stupefied. The Qi Clan had been destroyed by Lin Feng?
"How long did you keep me imprisoned?"
"More than ten years. I don't know exactly though," replied Lin Feng calmly.
"You can't have destroyed the Qi Clan in ten years!" said Qi Jiao Jiao. She didn't believe it. She threw herself at Lin Feng, but Ye Chen's silhouette flickered and he landed in front of Lin Feng. Qi Jiao Jiao sensed a terrifying strength constrict her body. Ye Chen hadn't even made a move on her.
"Emperors, cosmic strength!" Qi Jiao Jiao's expression changed drastically. She stared at the young man, so young and already an emperor. What had happened to the world?
"My teacher isn't lying. The Qi Clan has been destroyed. Now, my teacher can also destroy a clan like the Qi Clan with one finger. He's not lying. Leave now," said Ye Chen to Qi Jiao Jiao. Qi Jiao Jiao stepped backwards, her face deathly pale. Teacher?
That emperor was Lin Feng's disciple? What had happened? What was going on? How come Lin Feng had a disciple who was an emperor?!
Qi Jiao Jiao looked at Meng Qing. Many people had stopped considering her one of the four most beautiful women of Ba Huang because of this woman…
Qi Jiao Jiao looked wan and sallow as she left. She walked around aimlessly. She realized that the place she had been released was completely unknown to her. There were so many young people who were astonishingly strong. Most of them were emperors!…
Five days later, it was the birthday of the old man of the Yin Clan.
Yin Rui had a high social status in the Yin Clan. A hundred years old and already a Celestial Emperor, it was incredible even in the Holy City. He was extremely strong. Many people, even in Ancient Holy Clans, needed more than twenty years to break through to the Huang Qi layer, thirty years to break through from low, to medium, to high-level emperor, and then more than ten years to become great emperors. Only geniuses managed to level up faster than that. But Yin Rui was already a Celestial Emperor, it was an incredible accomplishment.
People who weren't talented had much lower social status than those who were.
Many people wanted to come and congratulate Yin Rui. There were nine flights of stairs leading up to the hall, and descendants of the Yin Clan were standing on them. At the bottom of the stairs, the guests were waiting.
"Ji Jiang, the Ji Clan congratulates you and wishes you a long life." There were many people at the foot of the flights of stairs. In the crowd, there was a young man from the Ji Clan. All those young people looked valiant and heroic. In the Ji Clan, n.o.body could compete with Ji Chang, but it didn't mean that they were weak. The young people of the Ji Clan were almost all geniuses. Two of them were in the Imperial Ranking List, both of them extremely strong. Of course, they were much weaker than Ji Chang!
"Brother Gu Tian, the Ji Clan and the Yin Clan have excellent relations. I'm happy to be here," replied Ji Jiang politely. Ancient clans were powerful, and even if there were tensions, they respected one another.
"Brother Ji, you're right. Our clans have good relations. It's such a pity that Ji Chang didn't come. We would have loved to see the Champion," smiled Yin Gu Tian.
"Ji Chang is meditating in seclusion. After the Pathfinder Day of the Imperial Ranking List, he'll try to become a great emperor. I've heard that Ying Cheng is about to become one," Ji Jiang smiled back.
Yin Gu Tian nodded, "I wish Brother Ji Chang much success for the Pathfinder Day of the Imperial Ranking List."
"Pei Dong Lai, I came to congratulate Yin Rui on his birthday!" said a voice in the distance. People turned around and saw Pei Dong Lai. He was wearing a purple robe and flying towards them. His famous purple Qi rolled in waves around him.
"Great Imperial Palace's people are here. What an honor! I am very happy!" answered Yin Rui, who was at the top of a flight of stairs. He looked like a middle-aged man with a few silver hairs.
"You're too polite, Master. My nephew, Pei Dong Qing, wanted to come too. I think he likes a princess of the Yin Clan," Pei Dong Lai laughed loudly. He looked at Yin Yue on purpose.
"Dong Lai is outstanding," Yin Rui said to Pei Dong Qing politely. Pei Dong Lai was incredibly talented and quite strong. He was also a great emperor from the Great Imperial Palace, a famous public figure.
Pei Dong Lai didn't know many people from the Yin Clan, and he didn't even care about them. He came because he had one goal. He gave meaningful glances to the members of the Yin Clan.
Yin Rui was experienced. He knew perfectly well what they wanted. He glanced at Yin Yue, but Yin Yue turned her head away and gazed into the distance. She looked impatient, and seemed to be waiting for something.
Lin Feng and Wu Shang were at the gate of the Yin Clan. At that moment, another group of people arrived. Lin Feng was surprised, because he recognized them. They were from the Yu Wen Clan! Yu Wen Jing was in the crowd, too! But she didn't dare look at Lin Feng anymore. She knew he despised her.
PMG Chapter 1941
Chapter 1941: Compet.i.tion
Lin Feng looked calm and serene, just glancing at Yu Wen Jing for a second. Yu Wen Jing didn't know what Lin Feng was thinking.
Yu Wen Hou was there too. He looked at Lin Feng for a few seconds and sighed. How strong, how talented, he was progressing so fast! He wondered why Lin Feng was doing there at Yin Rui's birthday party. Only people from influential families of the Holy City were there. Even though Lin Feng was from Champion University, he wasn't from an ancient clan in the Holy City. He had nothing to do with the Yin Clan… did he?
At the top of the flights of stairs were buildings and palaces. The banquet was already ready. The Yin Clan was very rich, and had only the best liquors and culinary specialties. Everybody was there for Yin Rui's birthday.
"Silly boy," said Yin Yue giggling when she saw Lin Wu Shang next to Lin Feng. She looked very happy suddenly, pure, innocent, and honest. Wu Shang smiled fatuously. He really looked silly when he was next to Yin Yue.
"Eh?" Yin Rui frowned when he saw Yin Yue's expression. He then glanced at Lin Feng coldly. He asked someone next to him using telepathy, "Who are those two?"
"I'll go and ask," replied the person next to Yin Rui, heading into the crowd. It was Yin Rui's birthday, and even though it was a big event and many people were invited, people who didn't have a high social status couldn't come as they wished.
Lin Feng sensed that someone was looking at him coldly, and saw Ji Jiang and the others.
Apart from Ji Jiang, Pei Dong Qing also looked at him and Wu Shang icily. Surprisingly, they really had come!
Lin Feng ignored Ji Jiang and the others, glancing over at the crowd. There were some extraordinary cultivators here today. Even Huo Jiu Yang and Xie Yue, whom he had seen in the Ji Clan back then, were there too. Xie Yue's Qi was evil. Huo Jiu Yang had a pure and scorching hot sun Qi.
There were many other people drinking all around them. There was someone with silver clothes, his eyes silver and looking sharp. That was the young man the young man of the Yin Clan had mentioned in the restaurant: the seventh on the Imperial Ranking List, Yin Gu Tian. He was extremely strong.
Apart from him, there was a cultivator wearing a golden kasaya, a Buddhist monk. Lin Feng glanced at him a few times. Even though he was a Buddhist monk, he looked like a really strong fighter.
In the Holy City, there's a Buddhist temple called the Canaan Buddhist Temple. They love fighting and are really good at it. The fourth cultivator on the Imperial Ranking List is a Buddhist monk, he must be from the Canaan Buddhist Temple. That guy must be a Buddhist Warrior, thought Lin Feng. He was right, that cultivator in a kasaya was from the Canaan Buddhist Temple and was really strong. He was also a student at the Ancient University. The Ancient University had a really good reputation. They had some students who had the potential to become Champions.
"The Yin Clan has existed for a very long in the Holy City. Today, it's Yin Rui's hundredth birthday, Pei Dong Qing came with his uncle to congratulate Yin Rui: Happy Birthday!" said someone at that moment. Everybody stopped talking and looked at Pei Dong Qing. That guy was a young man, and had no patience. Many elders hadn't even spoken up, as taking the initiative to talk first wasn't polite. But the Pei Clan was an ancient holy clan, powerful, and came from the Great Imperial Palace. Pei Dong Qing had come with Pei Dong Lai, so people couldn't say much.
Pei Dong Qing raised a box and gave it to a servant at the bottom of the flight of stairs. The person walked up the stairs. Yin Rui smiled, "You are so kind to me, Dong Qing. It would be impolite to decline."
It was normal to give presents on someone's birthday, so the old man couldn't refuse.
The servant walked up to Yin Rui and opened the box. A powerful b.e.s.t.i.a.l strength rose up in the air. There was a crystal inside, as dazzling as a heavenly turtle sh.e.l.l. It seemed alive!
"Turtle heart!" Yin Rui was surprised. Sharp lights flashed in his eyes. He looked at Pei Dong Qing and Pei Dong Lai and said, "This present is way too precious."
"My uncle was traveling in the east sea and killed a ten thousand year-old dragon turtle. Today is your birthday, I feel like it's not even enough," smiled Pei Dong Qing. Everybody was shocked.
"That turtle heart seems alive. It belonged to a great imperial dragon turtle, it seems. Dong Lai is a really strong cultivator." Yin Rui sighed and looked at Pei Dong Lai meaningfully. Back in the day, Pei Dong Lai was already considered as powerful and influential when he was only on the Imperial Ranking List. He was in the top three and had shaken the whole Holy City. Now he was a great emperor and could kill great imperial dragon turtles from the east sea!
Dragon turtles had an incredible defense, and controlled water and earth strength. It was extremely difficult to kill them. The deed proved how strong Pei Dong Lai was.
"The Pei Clan is powerful," murmured the crowd. That heart was full of vitality, and could help cultivators increase their own. It was a precious treasure for a human cultivator that could help Yin Rui progress on the path of cultivation.
"Thank you very much, I'm moved," smiled Yin Rui. The crowd was surprised. That was the most precious gift Yin Rui had received today. No wonder Pei Dong Qing dared act that way. Still, why did he offer Yin Rui such a precious treasure? After all, there were birthday parties everywhere and all the time. Giving a normal gift was enough, just enough to show one was happy to be there and knew the person. But offering such a valuable gift meant one had something else in mind.
"I don't have such a priceless gift as a turtle heart, but I have a tome of the Ancient Heart Purifying Buddhist Scriptures. I hope you enjoy it," said the smiling Buddhist warrior. He proferred a book with both hands.
"It would be impolite to decline, my boy. Thank you," said Yin Rui, smiling happily.
. The atmosphere was lively as everybody gave their gifts. At that moment, Pei Dong Qing looked at Lin Feng and Lin Wu Shang and said indifferently, "Two strangers here, which ancient clan are you from? I've never seen you before."
"It seems like you really care about people's clans, you asked me the same question the first time we met," said Lin Feng to Pei Dong Qing calmly.
"The strongest cultivators come from ancient holy clans in the Holy City," Pei Dong Qing smiled back. Lin Feng smiled indifferently and shook his head, then turned around and ignored him.
"What are you laughing at?" Pei Dong Qing asked Lin Feng.
Lin Feng ignored Pei Dong Qing and continued walking away. He had met so many people like Pei Dong Qing in his life. That type of person wasn't determined enough. Their determination could easily get crushed by people, and then they never recovered. On the other side of the scale, there were people like Jian Mang, where cultivation was their life, and n.o.body could crush their determination.
Pei Dong Qing was furious when he saw that Lin Feng ignored them, he said mockingly, "You're just pretending you don't care. Today is Yin Rui's birthday party and surprisingly, people like you dared come. Ridiculous!"
Lin Wu Shang was furious and shouted back, "What the h.e.l.l?!"
"Wu Shang, some people don't deserve getting your attention. Don't be furious because of them. Don't even pay attention to them. You understand?" said Lin Feng mildly.
Wu Shang was surprised but he nodded, "Alright, brother."
"Hihi!" Yin Yue giggled and smiled. She had thought Lin Feng would get angry, but he only despised people like Pei Dong Qing.
"Even though my nephew is a bit arrogant, you are being impolite. Are you saying you despise the Pei Clan?" spoke Pei Dong Lai slowly. Some purple Qi appeared around him.
Lin Feng turned around and looked at Pei Dong Lai. He said calmly, "Pei Dong Lai, from the Pei Clan in the Holy City, when you were at the top of the Huang Qi layer, you were third in the Imperial Ranking List, the two above you could oppress you. Now you're a member of the Great Imperial Palace and you're a great emperor."
Pei Dong Lai wasn't surprised that Lin Feng knew about him. He said calmly, "You know about me."
"Indeed, I do. But when you were at the top of the Huang Qi layer, two people oppressed you really badly. You never did better than third in the ranking list. Even though it's okay, it's not amazing either," said Lin Feng calmly.
The crowd was astonished and staring at Lin Feng now. That was insane, he was saying being third in the Imperial Ranking List was just okay?!
At that moment, someone spoke to Yin Rui using telepathy. Yin Rui looked over at Lin Feng, amused. So it was him?
"So you're higher than me in the Imperial Ranking List?" Pei Dong Lai asked mockingly. Pei Dong Lai knew the third cultivator on the Imperial Ranking List, it couldn't be Lin Feng. He was even sure that Lin Feng wasn't in the top ten.
"He's only a medium-level emperor. Back then you were at the top of the Huang Qi layer, and you're from an ancient holy clan, what you mean is that at the same cultivation level, you were better than him, right? Master Pei Dong Lai, what was your rank when you were at the top of the medium Huang Qi layer?" asked Yin Yue with a smile.
"When I was at the top of the medium Huang Qi layer, I was in the top forty of the Imperial Ranking List." said Pei Dong Lai.
"And did you compare yourself with the top three back then?"
"Of course I didn't. I was a medium-level emperor," said Pei Dong Lai.
"Oh, I see. So why do you compare yourself with a medium-level emperor now? Especially that one year ago, he wasn't even at the top of the medium Huang Qi layer and was already better ranked than you back then when you were at the top of the medium Huang qi layer. He even fought against Ji Chang, second on the Imperial Ranking List!" giggled Yin Yue. Everybody frowned in astonishment at her words.

Chapter 1942: Propose A Marriage Alliance
Pei Dong Lai frowned. He was from the Great Imperial Palace, so he knew perfectly well who was in the Imperial Ranking List and so on. When Yin Yue said that, he immediately thought of one person: Lin Feng!
A year before, Lin Feng had just become a medium-level emperor and he had fought against Ji Chang on the day of his Champion ceremony. Unfortunately, they hadn't finished the battle. This young man was Lin Feng!
Yin Yue looked at Pei Dong Qing and smiled, "Pei Dong Qing, so you're saying people from ancient clans are more talented that other people. So your uncle wasn't as strong as him back then at the same cultivation level, does it mean the Pei Clan is too weak, or does it mean your uncle is too weak?"
"Little Yue, that's enough!" shouted Yin Rui furiously. Pei Dong Lai was an extraordinary person from the Great Imperial Palace and the Pei Clan, and they had just given him a turtle heart. Yin Yue was disgracing him.
Pei Dong Qing was frozen. Yin Yue was humiliating him!
Yin Yue looked over at Lin Wu Shang, her beautiful eyes twinkling. Many people understood that Lin Wu Shang had come with his brother because he had hidden thoughts.
"Princess Yin Yue is not wrong but at the same time, a cultivation level is subjective. It isn't everything. And we belong to two different worlds, different generations, different contexts. No need to compare us," said Pei Dong Lai indifferently. Everybody looked amused.
"Anyway, congratulations, you're lucky you were born many years before him," laughed Yin Yue. Everybody understood she was trying to get closer to Lin Feng and his brother.
Yin Yue was unhappy because Pei Dong Qing had offered a turtle heart to her grandfather. She knew what he wanted. She was doing her best to reject him!
"Princess Yin Yue, you're wrong," intervened Ji Jiang slowly, "Back then, on the day of Ji Chang's Champion ceremony, Lin Feng and Ji Chang fought. Ji Chang didn't use his full strength because he despises Lin Feng, so Lin Feng was lucky. Then, when Ji Chang really wanted to battle and use his full strength, the university made him stop. Otherwise, Lin Feng wouldn't have been able to compete with Ji Chang."
"You're from the Ji Clan, you're on his side of course," reb.u.t.ted Yin Yue dismissively.
"I'm just stating facts. Back then, Pei Dong Lai was the third cultivator on the Imperial Ranking List, you know perfectly well who the second and first were. They were incredible. You know that you're wrong," continued Ji Jiang.
Some members of the Yu Wen Clan laughed, "Pei Dong Lai has always been amazing. Comparing him with Lin Feng is a humiliation for him."
Many people understood that Lin Feng had offended many people. Everybody knew there were tensions between the Ji Clan and Lin Feng. He had offended Ji Chang, but he had also offended Ji Wuyou many times, and Yu Wen Jing was in a relationship with him. So the Yu Wen Clan supported the Ji Clan as well. n.o.body seemed to support Lin Feng.
"What kind of nonsense is that? You're saying that the new generation of cultivators who is on the Imperial Ranking List isn't as strong as the previous one? So you're saying that Ying Cheng, Ji Chang, the Buddhist Warrior, Xie Yue, and Yin Gu Tian aren't as talented as the previous generation of cultivators who was on the Imperial Ranking List?" Yin Yue retorted scathingly. Those people were ridiculous, their arguments groundless. They were ready to say anything to discredit Lin Feng.
"Yin Yue, no need to reply to those people's nonsense," said Lin Feng calmly. Those people suddenly looked even more furious. Lin Feng looked at Yin Rui. "Master, those people are much stronger than me. I have a few good things, but they're probably not good enough for you. I'd like to offer a lotus to Yin Yue. It is made of Dao intent."
A Blue Uptala Lotus appeared in Lin Feng's hand. It contained a mysterious Dao intent, and slowly flew towards Yin Yue.
"I love this Blue Uptala Lotus!" said Yin Rui, taking it. Yin Rui smiled and nodded, "It's a precious treasure for Yin Yue, thank you very much."
"Master, Pei Dong Lai came here for another reason." said Pei Dong Lai at that moment. He initially didn't intend to act this quickly, but he had no choice anymore.
"There is no harm in saying what one thinks, Dong Lai." said Yin Rui politely.
"Princess Yin Yue is now eighteen years old. Many men want to get married to her. My nephew Dong Qing is in love with Princess Yin Yue. We came to congratulate you for your birthday and also to propose a marriage alliance between our two clans. If you accept, the Pei Clan and the Great Imperial Palace will be extremely happy," said Pei Dong Lai, smiling cheerfully.
Lin Wu Shang looked at Lin Feng and swore, "Bro!"
He had come here to get to know the Yin Clan, he hadn't thought the Pei Clan would propose a marriage alliance.
"No!" shouted Yin Yue hastily.
"Little Yue!" spoke up another strong cultivator of the Yin Clan; it was her father. He didn't want her to say anything insensitive. "Shut up now. Let your grandpa talk." Yin Yue looked dispirited, she looked at Lin Wu Shang in despair.
Even though Yin Rui had guessed that Pei Dong Lai had come for that reason, he looked solemn and respectful. The Pei Clan and the Yin Clan were ancient clans. There were invisible connections between such clans, it was all about the palace of power. The relations between the different clans also influenced the whole city. The Pei Clan was proposing a marriage alliance, that way they would never be enemies.
"Master," said Lin Feng at that moment. Yin Rui looked turned around and looked at Lin Feng.
"My brother Lin Wu Shang and Yin Yue are already going out. I'd like to propose a marriage alliance," said Lin Feng to Yin Rui calmly.
"Ridiculous!" A member of the Ji Clan didn't even give Yin Rui time to reply and laughed coldly. "Your brother Lin Wu Shang wants to get married with Yin Yue?! Did I hear what you said properly? Who are you? What is your social status? Does Lin Wu Shang deserve someone like Yin Yue?"
Lin Feng turned around, his eyes were filled with death energies. He looked at the member of the Ji Clan. Death intent emerged from his eyes and pierced through that person's pupils. His face suddenly turned grey.
"b.a.s.t.a.r.d!" shouted Ji Jiang and the others furiously. They all started moving towards Lin Feng and released Qi towards Lin Feng. Lin Feng's robe started fluttering in the wind.
"I just glanced at you. Why act that aggressively? Is that the social status you're talking about? Being too weak to withstand a gust of wind?" said Lin Feng, recalling his death intent. He looked calm and aloof, in contrast to the furious Ji Clan members.
"Master Yin Rui, if you give your consent for Pei Dong Qing and Yin Yue's union, the Pei Clan will use their full strength to raise Pei Dong Qing and Princess Yin Yue. The Great Imperial Palace will also do their best," said Pei Dong Lai. Yin Rui's eyes were twinkling, but he looked expressionless.
"I came from very, very far away. I have just one brother. Whenever I obtain ancient scriptures, skills, techniques and other resources, I give them to my brother, and I will also give them to his wife when he has one."
"You dare compare your resources with the Pei Clan's?" said Pei Dong Qing to Lin Feng.
Lin Feng looked at him in a disdainful way and countered, "Can you compare the resources of the Pei Clan with the resources of Champion University?"
Pei Dong Qing looked stunned and said, "The Pei Clan is my clan, you, you're just a student at Champion University, it's not yours."
"You're just a descendant of the Pei Clan, you're not the leader. My social status within Champion University will be higher than your social status in the Pei Clan, sooner or later. And regarding resources, I have the Celestial Evolution Holy Scriptures, does the Pei Clan have them?"
"Celestial Evolution Holy Scriptures?" Pei Dong Qing was astonished. Some other people had heard about the Celestial Evolution Holy Scriptures. Lin Feng had already studied them? And now Lin Feng was proposing a marriage alliance, which meant that he definitely had them.
When Lin Feng saw Pei Dong Qing remaining silent, he smiled coldly and took out a tree. Suddenly, the strength of the the ten thousand things of creation appeared around him, and there was a strong attraction between Lin Feng and that strength. It was an incredible sight, making people shiver with desire.
"That's…" Yin Rui was astonished.
"Does the Pei Clan have a Heavenly Grace Ancient Tree?" asked Lin Feng again. The crowd was astonished and swallowed. Lin Feng surprisingly had a Heavenly Grace Ancient Tree of G.o.dly Wood Valley!
Lin Feng perfectly understood that he couldn't rely on his reputation or social status to impress the Yin Clan. He was talented, but he was just a strong yet random cultivator.
"I have many other things, but I don't need to show you everything I have. I have books, skills, techniques, items, weapons. I probably have as many good resources as the Pei Clan. I even have Marks of the Path, more than enough," said Lin Feng indifferently. He was talking to Pei Dong Qing, but actually he just wanted the Yin Clan to hear him.
PMG Chapter 1943
Chapter 1943: Killing
This guy comes from a small world?, thought the crowd. The Celestial Evolution Holy Scriptures, the Heavenly Grace G.o.dly Wood, Marks of the Path, many great scriptures. Lin Feng sounded arrogant, but he wasn't lying, he had already shown two of those things to the crowd. Pei Dong Qing was from the Pei Clan, but he hadn't taken anything out yet.
No wonder that he was that strong, he had many treasures, talent, and experience!
"So show us, what do you have?" asked Lin Feng to Pei Dong Qing indifferently. Pei Dong Qing's face stiffened. What did he have? Apart from the fact that he belonged to a powerful clan, what did he have? Did he have items as valuable as Lin Feng's items?
Lin Feng slowly turned around and looked at Yin Rui. "Master, Pei Dong Qing has a good background, but that's all. What else does he have? Even if you belong to a powerful clan, you must make efforts. And also, considering his att.i.tude and personality, I don't think he'll go very far on the path of cultivation. Wu Shang is my only biological brother, everything I have, I will give it to him."
Yin Rui looked at Lin Feng meaningfully. Lin Feng was telling him that Pei Dong Qing's promises were empty. Lin Feng could at least prove what he was saying.
However, an alliance between the Yin Clan and the Pei Clan wasn't only about Yin Yue, it was about two powerful ancient clans. There was a lot at stake. It was a difficult choice for the Yin Clan.
At the beginning, everybody thought Pei Dong Qing was a better choice than Lin Feng because he belonged to a powerful clan, but now things were different. Even the Yin Clan was hesitating. Lin Feng had done a great job.
"Hehe," Yin Rui laughed indifferently and said to the crowd, "Yin Yue is young. Why hurry? She can also talk to her father. We need time to think."
Everybody understood. Yin Rui couldn't decide within seconds.
"Since it's that way, I'll wait for the good news. The Pei Clan is eager to have an alliance with the Yin Clan," said Pei Dong Lai indifferently. At his cultivation level, what other people said didn't affect him that much anymore. He was self-confident, and he was convinced the Yin Clan would give him face.
"Let's stop talking about that for now. We're here for my birthday party. There are so many geniuses today, please exchange views on cultivation, you can learn from one another," smiled Yin Rui. Everybody nodded and started chatting among themselves.
Lin Feng looked at the members of the Yin Clan. His eyes were twinkling. He didn't feel good about his chances. He was alone, and couldn't do much against two ancient clans. He was just talented, but that wasn't enough. Pei Dong Lai was also a genius, and on top of that he had already become a great emperor.
At that moment, someone landed in front of Lin Feng. It was Xie Yue. He smiled at Lin Feng and said, "Last time, when I saw you, I didn't think anything, but then you fought against Ji Chang, and I was very surprised. I hope we can battle at some point."
Xie Yue's eyes twinkled evilly with decay strength, however his expression didn't affect Lin Feng, who remained calm.
"It will soon be the Pathfinder Day of the Imperial Ranking List, you'll have the opportunity, Xie Yue," spoke up the Buddhist warrior indifferently at that moment. His eyes were sharp and extremely determined. He was the fourth cultivator on the Imperial Ranking List.
"Haha, the Pathfinder Day of the Imperial Ranking List will be amazing!" said Yin Gu Tian, laughing happily. They raised their gla.s.ses and toasted. Dazzling silver lights kept twinkling in Yin Gu Tian's eyes. He was the seventh cultivator of the Imperial Ranking List.
At that moment, some Qi rose up in the air. Pei Dong Lai came over, surrounded by a purple Qi.
"The Pathfinder Day of the Imperial Ranking List will be great, I will volunteer for battle. I will show everyone how incredible the Great Imperial Palace is," said Pei Dong Lai, glancing at the crowd and Lin Feng meaningfully. The Pathfinder Day of the Imperial Ranking List was an event organized by the Great Imperial Palace, who were in charge of the Imperial Ranking List. They had a great deal of power and influence.
Lin Feng looked at those extraordinary people. Many things would change after that event. It was difficult to remain calm and aloof when thinking about it. Even though he was quite strong, there were many people who were stronger than him in the Holy City. People who were on the Imperial Ranking List were astonishing, especially those at the top of the list who all understood Dao strength: Ying Cheng, Ji Chang, and so on were all terrifyingly strong.
Lin Feng and Lin Wu Shang were quickly bored, so they left.
"Bro, do you think the Yin Clan will accept Pei Dong Qing and Yin Yue's union?" asked Lin Wu Shang to Lin Feng.
Lin Feng remained silent for a few seconds and said, "Wu Shang, there is a big chance they will because the Pei Clan and the Yin Clan are both ancient clans. They care more about power and influence than anything else. Yin Yue isn't free to choose her husband."
"So I…" Lin Wu Shang's face stiffened.
But Lin Feng smiled and said, "Don't worry. If Yin Yue wants to follow you, you can escape with her. You can take her to my world, and n.o.body will find you. Even if you don't go to my world, you can go to another place in the Continent of the Nine Clouds. But you need to become stronger. You're an adult now, and you understand that if you're not strong enough, you can't do anything in this world."
"I understand." said Wu Shang nodding. He clenched his fists. If only he had been as strong as Lin Feng, the Yin Clan wouldn't have hesitated. Even though Lin Feng had said he would give him everything he had, they weren't the same person. Lin Feng being extremely talented didn't mean that Wu Shang was talented, and the Yin Clan didn't know how strong Wu Shang was.
At that moment, a strong wind started blowing behind Lin Feng.
"Brother Lin Feng, stop."
Lin Feng and Lin Wu Shang stopped and turned around. They saw many people following them, people from the Ji Clan and the Yu Wen Clan.
A strong wind whistled. The group of people quickly surrounded Lin Feng and his brother, and their Qi pressed out. Lin Wu Shang had already started suffocating and was instantly covered with cold sweat.
"What's this supposed to mean, everybody?" asked Lin Feng, glancing around. All these people were young people from the Ji Clan and the Yu Wen Clan. They were extremely strong, high-level emperors.
"Brother Lin Feng, you're extremely strong. Everybody knows about that. You can even compete with Ji Chang. We are all very weak in comparison with Ji Chang. We also know that. But we would like to know how strong you really are!" said one of them. His voice and Qi emitted whistling sounds. Lin Feng had the sensation mountains and oceans were pressing on him.
His eyes twinkled. His Celestial Evolution Chessboard appeared, and Lin Feng jumped on it. The deployment spell of the Celestial Evolution Chessboard became dazzling, lights illuminated the whole crowd. However, Lin Feng rose up in the air, looking at them icily. Death Qi started pulsing.
"Come!" said Lin Feng calmly. His powerful Qi became even more terrifying. Someone stretched out his hand and meteorites started falling from the sky towards Lin Feng. However, Lin Feng waved his hand, there was a rumble, and all the gigantic stones all exploded.
Many people charged him at the same time. Lin Feng saw a pair of eyes, they looked evil.
"Evil vision." The cultivator's eyes looked particularly sinister, like those a demon. At the same time, two other people ran towards Lin Feng, and a stone axe fell from the sky, able to easily destroy a mountain. The energies around it blotted out the sky. A Cyan Dragon appeared and bared its fangs.
Lin Feng's robe fluttered in the wind. His death strength was explosive, his gaze terrifying. The eyes of the cultivator who had evil eyes in front of Lin Feng suddenly started bleeding and his face turned grey. He looked like a corpse.
"Die!" shouted a strong cultivator explosively. The terrifying axe and the Cyan Dragon Qi fell from the sky towards Lin Feng.
Golden lights intertwined around Lin Feng and under his feet. A pattern appeared. Lin Feng flashed forwards and suddenly disappeared. The axe and the dragon continued falling from the sky as a horrible shriek arose. A death sword appeared and pierced through that person's head, and his body fell down from the sky.
