Peerless Martial God - Chapter 1651
Chapter 1651: Vast Celestial Ancient City
’’Holy City...’’ Lin Feng frowned as he thought of something.
The diviner had told him to come to Holy City to find him, but did he mean the real Holy City as in the celestial city or did he mean the great world as a whole?
If the diviner had meant the entire great world, then it would be extremely difficult to find him, unless Fortune Shrine was very famous and everybody knew about it in the Continent of the Nine Clouds.
’’Lin Xue, do you know about Fortune Shrine?’’ Lin Feng asked.
’’Fortune Shrine.’’ Mu Lin Xue shivered. Fortune Shrine was very mysterious, even more so than the Holy City. She didn't know much about it besides the name. According to legends, it was one of the most powerful influential groups in the world.
’’The Holy City is in the Dark Night region, and it's one of the main cities, so maybe you'll learn more about it there. I'm not strong enough, so I've never had the opportunity to learn more about it.’’ said Mu Lin Xue.
’’Lin Xue, have you ever heard of the Vast Celestial Ancient City?’’ asked Lin Feng. Mu Lin Xue looked at Lin Feng in a strange way. He didn't know much about the Continent of the Nine Clouds, so she was wondering how he had lived before.
’’Lin Feng, the Vast Celestial Ancient City is one of the main cities, just like the Holy City. It's one of the eighteen ancient cities that kind of reign over the region we are in.’’ said Mu Lin Xue: ’’By the way, why do you ask me that?’’
’’I see.’’ thought Lin Feng. This reminded him a bit of Tiantai in the northern part of Ba Huang. If it was the same, then that meant their region was probably divided into eighteen parts and each of them was controlled by a city.
’’I saw that in the memories an old man had transmitted to me.’’ said Lin Feng to Mu Lin Xue. He didn't explain more though. Actually, he had learnt about the Vast Celestial Ancient City in the memories of the Everlasting Celestial Emperor. The Everlasting Palace still wanted to capture Lin Feng, so there were things he couldn't talk about. He didn't know how far he was from Si Xiang City, but if he wasn't far, he had to leave soon.
’’The professor must have a map of the region at least.’’ said Lin Feng.
’’Maybe, since you want one, we can go and see him. I'll come with you too.’’ said Mu Lin Xue smiling. Lin Feng nodded and they both crossed Gold-Fire Tower to get to the professor's place. The professor, six months before, had told Lin Feng to come if he needed anything.
After a short time, Lin Feng and Mu Lin Xue arrived in front of a golden-purple tower, which reminded them of the professor's clothes.
’’Lin Feng, Mu Lin Xue.’’ Someone came out and appeared in the courtyard. He smiled, ’’Don't be shy, come here.’’
’’Thank you very much, Master.’’ said Lin Feng bowing.
’’Not bad, you've both progressed a lot, Lin Feng will become an emperor soon!’’ said the professor.
’’I wonder when I'll I'll be able to break through to the Huang Qi layer.’’ said Lin Feng smiling. Many people's cultivation stopped at different points. Even though Lin Feng was talented, breaking through to the Huang Qi layer wasn't going to be easy.
’’When you are ready, things happen naturally. Maybe someday you'll understand something suddenly and then level up.’’ said the professor smiling. ’’By the way, did you want something from me?’’
’’Master, do you have a map of the region controlled by the Vast Celestial Ancient City?’’ said Lin Feng straightforwardly.
’’Oh?’’ The professor's eyes twinkled. He smiled and said, ’’Lin Feng, do you want to go to the Vast Celestial Ancient City?’’
’’I'm thinking of going.’’ said Lin Feng.
’’The Vast Celestial Ancient City is one of the eighteen main cities in our region. There are many strong cultivators there, powerful sects and clans, many geniuses, it's a heaven for cultivators is what I'm getting at. Of course, it can also be hell for some people, depending on their luck. Lin Feng, I will send some strong cultivators there in a few months, if you want, you can go with them.’’ said the professor.
’’A young person from Gold-Fire Tower is in the Vast Celestial Ancient City, and in a few months, those people will go and visit him. They'll also bring some young people to broaden their horizons.’’ said the professor.
’’Having said this, if you still want to go alone, you can. I have maps in my memories, and I can transmit a map of the region to you.’’ said the professor smiling. He didn't want Lin Feng to misunderstand him.
’’Thank you very much, Master.’’ said Lin Feng bowing. Then, the professor transmitted the memories to Lin Feng. It was kind of blurry though, several places were not distinct. It was probably difficult to make a precise map of such a huge place.
’’Master, I'm off, I'll see you later.’’ said Lin Feng before he turned around left with Mu Lin Xue.
’’Lin Feng, what do you want to do now?’’ Mu Lin Xue asked him.
’’Since the end of the tournament, we've been staying in Gold-Fire Tower the whole time. We should go and see Uncle Muyi.’’ said Lin Feng cheerfully. Mu Lin Xue didn't mind and smiled back, ’’I wonder how my dad is doing, let's go to the Mu Clan.’’
The Mu Clan was prosperous those days. Since the end of the tournament, Muyi had gone back, and Mu Lin Xue's uncle had been expelled. The Mu Clan was still under a lot of pressure from the Yan Clan though. Of course, the Yan Clan didn't dare openly attack the Mu Clan either. Mu Lin Xue and Lin Feng had become important people to Gold Fire Tower, so who know what their response would be if they were openly hostile.
Lin Feng and Mu Lin Xue went back to the Mu Clan, many people instantly noticing them. Older people smiled at Lin Feng politely, having heard or seen about him kill an emperor, they could only admire him.
When Muyi saw Lin Feng and Mu Lin Xue, he instantly became happy. They had food and drinks before Lin Feng wanted to leave.
’’Where are you going, Lin Feng?’’ Mu Lin Feng?’’ Mu Lin Xue asked. She seemed sad, as if she didn't want Lin Feng to leave.
’’Lin Xue, you should stay here in the Mu Clan. I want to go to Sword Mountain.’’ Lin Feng said. Sword Mountain wasn't far from Gold-Fire Tower. Lin Feng wanted to go and see Ruo Xie seeing how he hadn't traveled for a year. He didn't like staying in the same place for too long. After he came back, then he'd go to the Vast Celestial Ancient City with the people from Gold-Fire Tower.
’’I want to come with you.’’ said Mu Lin Xue. She looked strange, as if she was scared that Lin Feng would never come back.
Lin Feng smiled wryly and said, ’’Don't worry, I'll come back to Gold-Fire Tower. This trip won't take that long.’’
Mu Lin Xue lowered her head, she looked sad and disappointed.
’’Haha, Lin Xue, are you really so scared that Lin Feng won't come back?’’ said Muyi laughing. Mu Lin Xue blushed and said, ’’Dad.’’
’’Alright, everybody knows how you're feeling. Lin Feng, go, I'll take care of my daughter.’’ said Muyi. Lin Feng smiled wryly, he knew that Muyi wanted him to be with his daughter.
’’Uncle Muyi, Lin Xue, I'm off.’’ said Lin Feng. And then he moved like the wind and left. Muyi then stopped smiling and whispered, ’’That little boy is difficult to understand, it won't be easy for you to start a relationship with him, Lin Xue.’’
Mu Lin Xue raised her head and watched as Lin Feng left. She knew that Lin Feng was just trying to keep some distance between them.
