Chapter 30 : Childhood Sweethearts
Young master Feng disappeared for three days in a row without any news, so the governor of the city sent out three different official documents ordering the nearby towns to help search for him, but there was no useful information.
Young master Feng seemingly had dissipated from this world.
The happiest person in this matter was of course Feng Sui Yu!
Today, he wore a feather scarf, his hand held a paper fan made from rosewood while he leisurely enjoyed the flowers in his garden.
“Oldest master, this little boy Feng Fei Yun showed off his ability too much; he must have offended someone he shouldn’t have, so he was murdered.”
A servant standing respectfully to the side, wore a devious smile on his face.
Feng Sui Yu, without showing his emotions, gently touched a flower and said:
“Feng Fei Yun! Hah Hah! His disappearance is quite opportune. This saves me time from having to do it personally.”
After Feng Fei Yun led the city guards to destroy the Eagle Claw gang, Feng Sui Yu felt a great threat. If he didn’t quickly get rid of Feng Fei Yun, then he would not be able to eat well and sleep tight.
However, who would have guessed that this little Feng Fei Yun just suddenly disappeared? He seemingly vanished from this world. This was the result that Feng Sui Yu had truly wanted, so naturally his heart was very pleased; he thought that even the heavens was helping him out.
“Big brother, you are in a good mood today, ah! What are you smiling about?”
Feng Fei Yun, from the outside the main door, came in openly, with a happy smile on his face.
Feng Sui Yu couldn’t smile anymore after hearing this voice. He turned around, and he saw that Feng Fei Yun was walking toward his front.
“Fei Yun, where did you go for these last couple of days? Foster father and I were very worried about you.”
Although Feng Sui Yu was disappointed inside, he quickly controlled his emotions. A caring smile appeared on his face.
“This matter… ah, I was only strolling around in a circle. Right! Where is father? I have an urgent matter for him.”
Feng Fei Yun said.
“Foster father is in the main hall discussing important business with an esteemed guest, maybe you shouldn’t disturb them.”
Feng Sui Yu stared at Feng Fei Yun intensely, his face began to become serious. After all, he felt that with this return, Feng Fei Yun was not like the past; this gave him a deep and unfathomable feel.
How could a playboy that only fooled around and awaited his own death have such a shattering transformation within just a few days? Could he have met an immortal’s fortune or something?
Matters such as meeting an immortal’s fortune was not impossible, but it was exceedingly rare. Only people with extreme luck would be able to find an immortal’s fortune, and they would then soar to the heaven with just one step.
Feng Sui Yu naturally didn’t believe that Feng Fei Yun had found an immortal fortune, so he intended to test him to find out his true worth.
Feng Fei Yun was always worrying about that damned grandma Dong Fang Jing Yue’s pursuit of him to Spirit State city; thus, he was in such a rush so he didn’t pay attention to many things. He quickly headed toward the main hall.
Feng Sui Yu’s eyes followed Feng Fei Yun’s shadow, and his fingers picked out a white flower petal, secretly adding his spirit energy to it. The originally white flower was quickly covered by a blue grey color.
Without any warning, this petal from Sui Yu’s finger flew out in a beautiful arc which aimed straight towards the Ji Liang meridian of Feng Fei Yun.
Currently, Feng Sui Yu was at the peak of the Spirit Realm; it could be considered an outstanding cultivation. He was confident that his little plan would not be detected by Feng Fei Yun.
The spirit energy of this petal turned into a deathly aura that penetrated the Ji Liang meridian of Feng Fei Yun, and it disappeared without a trace.
Feng Sui Yu’s eyes, from beginning to end, had been concentrated on the petal. It was only until the spirit energy had infiltrated the Ji Liang meridian of Feng Fei Yun that he breathe easily; in his heart, he secretly smiled:
“It seems that I was too cautious. This little boy is only this much. With the spirit energy infiltrating the Ji Liang meridian, his cultivation, in this lifetime, will never take another step forward. It will stagnate forever in the same place at the early level of the Spirit Realm.”
Feng Sui Yu assumed that Feng Fei Yun’s cultivation was still at the early level of the Spirit Realm like before. He didn’t know that within the last couple of days, Feng Fei Yun had underwent multiple adventures, and he had soon broke through to the Immortal Foundation. Currently, maybe Feng Wan Peng was not his match; as for someone with the cultivation of Feng Sui Yu, he only needed one slap to kill him completely.
Feng Sui Yu’s petty maneuver was naturally sensed by Fei Yun, but he didn’t stop his steps. His mouth let out a little smirk, and he secretly channeled his energy inside his body. In the blink of an eye, the spirit energy of Feng Sui Yu that had infiltrated his meridian was scattered and expelled out of his body.
“This little boy has a lot of underhanded schemes. I need to find an opportune moment to deal with him.”
Feng Fei Yun continued walking at a fast pace, and he didn’t inform anyone before coming directly to the lobby. At any moment, that damned grandma Dong Fang Jing Yue could show up, so Feng Fei Yun didn’t have time to wait around.
“Father, Fei Yun has an important matter that requires your attention.”
As he spoke these words, he had already made it to the main hall. He lifted his head and saw that in the main hall, besides Feng Wan Peng, was another middle-aged man.
This middle-aged man was around forty years old with slightly dark skin, but it didn’t hinder his elegant aura. He was very well groomed with not a single strand of hair on his face. His body was rather slender, and his clothes were clean and tidy. It was evident that he was from a royal upbringing and lived like a prince.
Besides Feng Wan Peng and the middle-aged man, Adviser Liu and Housekeeper Luo were were divided to the two sides. When they saw Feng Fei Yun intruding into the main hall, they didn’t become angry; they turned ecstatic instead.
As long as one could return safely, then it was already a good thing!
Even though Feng Wan Peng’s expression was serious, inside, he was very happy; he gleefully asked:
“Fei Yun, where did you go these last couple of days?”
Feng Fei Yun naturally couldn’t tell them that he had offended a big character from the Yin Gou family; otherwise, all the people here would be frightened to the ground.
“Honorable father, these last couple of days I was in isolated cultivation in order to research military strategies, and I was actively preparing for the Military Strategy Iron Council that is coming up soon. I am hoping that I could show my talents in this assembly, so that father could be proud.”
Feng Fei Yun clasped his hands together, and he respectfully answered.
The middle-aged man, from beginning to end, had been observing Feng Fei Yun; seeing his calm and appropriate response, he couldn’t help but to nod his head and smile:
“I can’t believe that after three years, this boy Fei Yun had improved so much. So young, but he has already asked for a military order to level the Eagle Claw gang. Even the ninth great-grandfather is aware of this, always praising this talented boy in front of me. If this was three years ago, even if you beat me to death, I wouldn’t believe that he would have such an achievement like today.”
Feng Fei Yun’s grandfather had three sons; Feng Wan Peng was the youngest. He was ranked third.
This middle-aged man was the second blood brother of Feng Wan Peng; his name was Feng Wan Li. He was also the second older uncle of Feng Fei Yun.
Feng Wan Li was also a person with extraordinary talents, a hero. Twenty years ago, during the last Hidden Dragon War of the Feng family, he was placed in the top fifty. Currently, he was situated in the main Feng family house with the minister of affairs position, and he could be considered to have had some modest success.
The relationship between Feng Wan Li and Feng Wan Peng was quite close. Wan Li frequently visited Spirit State city as a guest. He had seen Fei Yun at a young age, so he naturally knew what type of person this little boy was – a wasteful pervert and a foolish party fiend. From the past till now, he had never placed high hopes in Fei Yun; however, the current Fei Yun gave him a new sensation. It was as if he was a completely changed man.
Could this little boy truly become a prodigal son and become a genius?
Feng Fei Yun smiled, he and said:
“Second uncle, are you praising me or wanting to hurt me here?”
Feng Wan Li shook his head and smiled:
“If you have truly become successful, then I naturally will praise you; however, if you are merely a foolish person, then, even if I don’t scold you, I’m afraid my little girl will still scold you to death.”
“Little sister Jian Xue?”
Remembering this mischievous little girl, Fei Yun suddenly felt an oncoming headache.
Feng Jian Xue was the foster daughter of Feng Wan Li, and the little cousin of Feng Fei Yun. She was only younger than Feng Fei Yun by three days. Since childhood, they had always played together, and they were considered childhood sweethearts. The two were always innocently together, but once Feng Fei Yun had turned into a bad boy with horrible characters, Feng Wan Li no longer allowed for Feng Jian Xue to become close to him.
Even though they had met again several times later, however, each time Feng Fei Yun was scolded by Feng Jian Xue to the point of vomiting blood. Especially after she had found out that he had raped a girl; she gave him a vicious beating, fracturing all the bones in his body. He couldn’t get off the bed for half a month.
From then on, Feng Jian Xue was thoroughly disappointed in this older cousin, and she no longer visited Spirit State city; it could be considered as having all ties severed.
Feng Wan Li smilingly said:
“Fei Yun, right now you need to be careful when coming to Violet Firmament Ancient City. These last few years, Jian Xue was heavily nurtured by the family, and she had achieved the fourth stage of the Vigorous Gale method at the early Immortal Foundation. Within the fifth generation of the Feng family, she is considered one of the influential figures. Plus, before I came to Spirit State city, she told me that should you dare to come to Violet Firmament Ancient City that she will break your legs again.”
When it came to the cultivation of Feng Jian Xue, Feng Wan Li was very proud. After all, he was only at the intermediate stage of the Immortal Foundation, and Feng Jian Xue was so young, yet she made it to the early stage. Regarding cultivation, she had left the father and son pair of Feng Wan Peng in the dust; this was a matter worthy of smugness.
On the contrary, Feng Wan Peng’s face was very hard to look at. In the beginning, he thought that Feng Sui Yu’s talent was high enough to take charge of a mission alone, but he didn’t expect for Feng Jian Xue’s cultivation to be so frightening; she already broke through to the Immortal Foundation.
One was at peak Spirit Realm, and the other was early Immortal Foundation; there was no room for comparison.
Feng Fei Yun didn’t mind too much, so he smilingly said:
“Violet Firmament Ancient City; I have no choice but to go. If she really wants to break my legs, then I’ll have no choice but to accept it.”
Feng Wan Li saw Feng Fei Yun’s nonchalant attitude, and he couldn’t help but to rub his eyes and ask:
“Do you not want to know why she said these words to you?”
Feng Fei Yun said:
“That’s right! Even though she hates me to the bones, but she still can’t have the illogical urge to break my legs for no reason.”
Feng Wan Li, facing Feng Wan Peng, smiled:
“Fei Yun, you, today, could be considered an adult; plus, you have the courage to ask for a military order as well as successfully obtained military contributions. Our ninth great-grandfather thinks very highly of you, and he felt that you are our hope. We had already discussed it; if you can achieve success in the Military Strategy Iron Council and show off all of your hidden talents, then the ninth great-grandfather would personally arrange for the marriage between you and Jian Xue.”
“A man starting a family early will always mature faster. Fei Yun, right now, you are not settled, and you are too emotional; you truly need someone that can reign you in really well.”
Housekeeper Liu nodded his head and smiled.
Feng Wan Peng naturally had apparently already agreed to this matter, and he also smiled:
“This matter, I had previously discussed with Housekeeper Liu. Fei Yun, you are decisively smart; you are a fitting person to walk on the road of a talented strategist, but your body is not fit for cultivation. This is your weakness, so you need a talented wife with a powerful cultivation to assist you. We have unanimously found that yours and Jian Xue’s personalities were compatible; if you guys could become husband and wife, then it would truly be one gifted in martial arts, the other in wisdom; it is too appropriate.”
Feng Fei Yun felt as if, in the bright sky, there was a loud thunder hurting his eardrums; in response, he said:
“Our personalities are compatible? She wants to break my legs, how do you all explain this?”
Feng Fei Yun didn’t know whether to laugh or cry; he truly couldn’t think of how he and Feng Jian Xue were compatible.
The bunch of Feng Wan Peng, Feng Wan Li, and Housekeeper Liu were all coughing twice, and their faces became strange. Naturally, they had been silenced by this matter, but earlier they had already talked about everything. Whether Feng Fei Yun wanted to or not, this had already been a foregone conclusion.
