Peerless Martial God - Chapter 788
Chapter 788: For Justice!
Yu Tian Ji continued to stare at Lin Feng. He made a few steps forwards and said, ’’You're right, I, Yu Tian Ji, came to the mysterious world as a leader. People from Tian Chi all have to listen to my orders.’’
Lin Feng was staring at Yu Tian Ji, his white clothes fluttering in the wind. He looked like a hero, free and unrestrained, natural... The strong cultivators from Tian Chi never questioned what he said, as if he was their god.
Yu Tian Ji was the leader of the Tian Ji group but he was also considered the leader of all seven groups from Tian Chi. Someday he would become a real leader of the Tian Ji group, everybody would listen to and respect him then as well.
’’Lin Feng, Tian Chi accepted you and gave you a warm welcome. The snow eagles are some of our elders who won't prevent people from becoming citizens of Tian Chi, but that doesn't mean I accept you. It also doesn't mean that the six other groups accept you. A few days before, when you entered the mysterious world, you killed all the people from the Tian Shu group. They had offended you first, so you killed them and I perfectly understand. However, those two have stolen precious treasures, so you will hand them over or else I will kill you!’’ Yu Tian Ji was furious.
Yu Tian Ji's face was filled with murder, he wasn't trying to conceal his true intentions anymore.
’’How ridiculous, I remember what the elders said before. If any person from Tian Chi found a precious treasure, they could keep it for themselves. You pretend to be a leader of Tian Chi, could it be that you don't even know that!?’’ shouted Lin Feng furiously. Yu Tian Ji was twisting words to force logic.
’’If Tian Chi Xue had seized a precious treasure, or one of its people, I wouldn't try and fight to get them. But, as I have already said, even though the elders of Tian Chi accepted them, it doesn't mean that I do. Besides, who are they to get those treasures? Even if they really wanted to join Tian Chi, I won't change my mind.’’ Yu Tian Ji said. He then continued, ’’They are not qualified to use such treasures, but they are suitable for me. I will not hesitate to fight for that purpose even if it means getting my clothes a little dirty.’’
’’Everything for the empire.’’ said Yu Tian Ji alone while stroking his chest with his hand. Even if he had to kill, or even go against the elders' will, he wouldn't hesitate. He would fight, that's how he was and he was now more determined than ever.
’’Just a load of crap! Why don't you admit that you are only motivated by your own personal interests? You want the treasures all for yourself.’’ Lin Feng said while his entire body released sharp sword energies. He then shouted furiously, ’’Talking too much is of no use, let's fight. You say that you want to punish those who betray Tian Chi, in the same manner, I, Lin Feng, represent Tian Xuan. I also kill traitors like you. Tian Xuan is an artery of Tian Chi, why would we listen to your orders?’’
Yu Tian Ji felt fearless as he sensed Lin Feng's battle energy.
’’I know that you have received the three elders' instructions, and that you are very strong. Your sword intent is already level six... To be honest, I really like you. If you were the one who had stolen the treasures I might not try to steal them. I think that you can rise up within Tian Xuan, however, since you are protecting those two, tensions arose between you and I. If you lose, I will not kill you. However, those two will have to hand over the treasures they stole.’’ Yu Tian Ji said slowly, sounding incredibly self-confident.
’’What if you lose?’’ shouted Huang Fu Long.
’’Lose?’’ said Yu Tian Ji, smiling in a cold and detached way. He glanced over the five people on top of the cave and said, ’’Amongst all the people on the seven snowy peaks of Tian Chi, apart from you, who dares disobey my orders? They don't because I am their leader. I am the leader of the highest of the seven snowy peaks, Tian Ji. How could I, Yu Tian Ji, lose? Do you really think that it's that easy to become a Tian Chi leader?’’
Yu Tian Ji seemed extremely confident. Lin Feng and the others were staring at him. Indeed, the Tian Chi Empire was an empire of medium quality, thanks to the incredible cohesion of its members, it had an excellent reputation. The snowy peaks of Tian Chi constituted the soul of the empire and Yu Tian Ji was one of its young leaders. Maybe in the future, Yu Tian Ji would really become the leader of the empire.
It almost seemed like Lin Feng and the others were realizing that they had underestimated Yu Tian Ji.
Besides, Yu Tian Ji knew that Lin Feng had three Zun teachers, he also knew that Lin Feng's sword intent was level six. But, he didn't look scared whatsoever. The only thing one could see was his battle energy burning all around his body.
However, even if Yu Tian Ji wasn't scared, could Lin Feng be scared? He was also releasing battle energy. During the short period of time he spent in the Tian Chi region, he practiced cultivation and learnt a lot. Coupled with the knowledge obtained in the mysterious world, Lin Feng could kill people of the ninth Xuan Qi layer easily. He hadn't had a difficult battle for awhile now.
’’Keep dreaming, you're saying that if you win you'll get the precious treasures. But when we ask you what will happen if you lose, you think that replying that you will not lose is enough? What if Lin Feng just said that he wasn't going to lose as well?’’ Huang Fu Long was furious, he was surrounded by waves of energy.
’’Dragon energy is flowing in your veins... I would have never thought that Tian Chi would comprise so many geniuses, how great. I said it already, I will just take those two treasures as they are suitable for me, I will not kill you. If I lose, I have no item to give you, otherwise I would give them to Lin Feng.’’
’’Bullshit, you pretend to be a leader so it means that you're a leader? Who acknowledges you?’’ faid Huang Fu Long in a disdainful way.
’’They all do. If Lin Feng wins against me, I swear that from today on, Lin Feng will become the most respected young man of Tian Chi.’’ said Yu Tian Ji.
Huang Fu Long wanted to say something but then he heard Lin Feng say, ’’I agree.’’
Lin Feng and Yu Tian Ji were surrounded by battle energy rolling in waves, ready to fight.
’’How exciting.’’ said Yu Tian Ji smiling. He glanced at the others, his eyes were twinkling in a cold way as he said, ’’If we fight, I fear other people will not remain calm. Tian Chi people, listen to me, I order you to protect those two treasures so that I can take and use them after.’’
The strong cultivators of Tian Chi slightly nodded. Nobody contradicted him, especially all the leaders from the snowy peaks of Tian Chi. Each year, they all learnt from each others by interaction, they were the only ones who realized how strong Yu Tian Ji was. For the others, his strength was unfathomable.
’’Surprisingly, you are quite self-confident.’’ said Lin Feng whose body was surrounded by sharp energies. Yu Tian Ji had immediately ordered them to keep and protect those two treasures for him, he was wildly conceited.
Lin Feng glanced at the crowd and noticed that they all looked restless. If he fought against Yu Tian Ji, the others would go insane and would try to steal Jun Mo Xi and Yun Fei Yang's treasures.
Lin Feng looked at Jun Mo Xi and the two others and said, ’’How do you feel?’’
’’I feel like drinking alcohol.’’ said Jun Mo Xi while smiling. His dazzling golden robe was fluttering in the wind.
’’Indeed, alcohol.’’ said Yun Fei Yang, also smiling. Even though he was injured, he looked as free and unrestrained as before. A strong wind started blowing, and clouds were rising (translator's note: ’’yun’’ means ’’clouds’’ and ’’fei yang’’ means ’’to rise’’).
Huang Fu Long was giggling in a silly way.
Lin Feng looked at his group of friends and smiled in a resplendent way. He then said, looking joyful, ’’You You, the alcohol!’’
Tang You You stretched out her hand as a multitude of Hot Unit flasks appeared. She knew that Lin Feng enjoyed drinking strong alcohol, so she had prepared plenty of flasks from the Dragon Mountain Empire.
They grabbed the flasks and looked excited. They had the opportunity to drink together, how great!
’’Qiao Feng and I have sworn brotherhood as cultivators. Today, I, Lin Feng, and all my brothers and sisters will, in the same way, offer a grand and spectacular show. We're going to drink happily and kill wholeheartedly, cheers!’’ shouted Lin Feng while lifting his flask up in the air. The flask broke into pieces and the strong alcoholic Hot Unit appeared in the air.
Lin Feng opened his mouth, abruptly started sucking in the liquid. In a flash, all the alcohol was flowing down his throat. The strong and spicy alcohol had a very pleasant taste.
Even though the others didn't know who Qiao Feng was, but they also felt high-spirited and vigorous, they wanted justice to reign over the world. They raised their flasks filled with alcohol, enjoying the strong alcohol left them joyful, free, unrestrained and independent.
Life was short and difficult, especially the cruel world of cultivation, deprived of emotions. Nobody knew when it had become acceptable to kill others for one's own personal interests. Having some intimate friends, being able to drink happily and slaughter others together, wasn't that a great way to spend time with friends?
’’Cheers!’’ shouted the five friends happily. They looked peerless and magnificent.
The crowd stared at them as they drank. They couldn't help but feel strange, on the one hand, they were jealous, on the other hand, they felt sad. The world was restless, personal interests were like sharp swords, and killing people was abstract. Being able to drink alcohol happily and kill others with one's friends was something rare and difficult to achieve. Some people spent their entire lives trying to become better cultivators. They were trying to excel in the field of cultivation, they were trying to reach the apex of an abstract and intangible field. In the end, they never regretted it.
