Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Kid, do you think the Groom Search Competition my City Governor’s Estate held is a game? Or do you think no one wants my daughter? That you can choose to marry her at a whim?” Feng Wu Dao glanced coldly at Duan Ling Tian as he shouted in a deep voice.
Presently, a trace of surprise that was difficult to notice flashed within Feng Wu Dao’s eyes when he saw Duan Ling Tian actually only spat out a mouthful of blood when enveloped by his imposing manner.
Originally, as far as he was concerned, his imposing manner was sufficient to press a mere fifth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist like Duan Ling Tian flat on the ground.
“Where do you place the dignity of the City Governor’s Estate by doing this? Where do you place the face of my daughter?!” The voice of Feng Wu Dao suddenly became stern.
An even stronger imposing manner flashed out to sweep towards Duan Ling Tian.
Instantly, Duan Ling Tian’s ghastly pale expression became deathly pale, and he felt his entire body, placed within the center of a storm, on the verge of collapse.
Duan Ling Tian glanced at the young woman who stood by Feng Wu Dao’s side with a pair of slightly red eyes, and smiled bitterly while he spat out another mouthful of blood. “City Governor Feng, I told your daughter when I ascended the arena… I only came for the Soul Transformation Fruit.”
“You… You really don’t like me?” The City Governor’s daughter’s eyes contained tears that were about to drop as she stared at Duan Ling Tian, and her gentle and moving voice contained slight agitation mixed within.
Duan Ling Tian sighed. “I haven’t even seen your appearance, how can I say I like you or not? But, I did indeed come here for the Soul Transformation Fruit this time, and have no other intentions… If I can’t only take the Soul Transformation Fruit, then I’m sorry for disturbing you. Farewell!”
“I’m sorry.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the City Governor’s daughter and smiled apologetically, then turned around, intending to leave.
“Do you think you can come and go to my City Governor’s Estate as you please?” The instant Duan Ling Tian turned around, he heard a voice seeming to condense into a sharp sword that fiercely pierced into his ears, shocking his eardrums to the point they trembled.
A force that he was unable to rival instantly spread throughout his body.
In the next moment, he felt his entire body become powerless and his consciousness gradually becoming blurred.
The crowd of people before him gradually vanished before his eyes.
“Squeak squeak~” Before he fainted, he heard the little gold mouse’s enraged cry sound out by his ears, then he completely lost consciousness.
When Duan Ling Tian regained consciousness, he felt his entire body ache.
“So painful!” Duan Ling Tian opened his eyes, and only now did he notice that he was lying on a luxurious bed within a spacious room.
“You’ve woken up?” Right at this moment, the room’s door was opened and a fiery red beautiful figure walked in, and she held a tray containing a bowl of fragrant meat porridge.
Duan Ling Tian’s stomach growled without putting up a resistance the instant he smelled the fragrance of the porridge.
Duan Ling Tian looked at the red clothed young woman who wore a veil, the City Governor’s daughter, and he shook his slightly dazed head as he asked. “How did I get here?”
“You were knocked out by my Father, and you’ve been unconscious for three days and nights… My Father’s temper is like that so don’t take it to heart.” The City Governor’s daughter placed the porridge at the side and helped Duan Ling Tian up slightly before removing her veil, then she held up the bowl of porridge and scooped a spoonful before putting it before her mouth and blowing. She passed to spoon to Duan Ling Tian as she smiled lightly. “It’s been three days, you’re surely hungry already, right?”
“But…” Duan Ling Tian was currently dumbstruck.
He was completely dumbstruck at the instant the City Governor’s daughter removed her veil.
When the veil dropped down, appearing before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes was a dazzling beauty with an absolutely beautiful face, her black eyebrows like paintings, and her eyes like two drops of autumn water. Her fine nose, scarlet lips, white teeth, and naturally sweet features drew out a perfect face that was breathtakingly beautiful.
She was just like a fairy that had fallen into the mortal realm.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian felt his heart completely calm down because of this young woman’s appearance.
“You… So beautiful.” Duan Ling Tian muttered.
The young woman’s beauty was breathtaking.
“You should drink your porridge.” The young woman’s beautiful face flushed red, as if blood could drop out from it and she was gentle like water. Compared to the valiant young woman that fought Duan Ling Tian in the arena earlier, she was like a completely different person.
Fiery in action, but like water when calm.
This was the impression Duan Ling Tian had of the young woman in his heart.
Duan Ling Tian allowed the young woman to feed him a mouthful of porridge, and he felt warmth arise in his body when the porridge entered his stomach.
“I… I still don’t know your name.” The young woman asked timidly.
“I’m called Duan Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled and looked at her. “What about you?”
“Feng Tian Wu.” The young woman smiled sweetly.
“I’m truly sorry about what happened before… I was really not prepared.” Duan Ling Tian had an apologetic expression when he recalled the other day.
Feng Tian Wu seemed to recall what happened that day when she heard this, then she faintly sighed. “You… don’t blame my Father, he did it for me. Perhaps, it’s truly because your conditions really conform to the person in my destiny… So my Father wasn’t willing to let you leave like that.”
“This person in your destiny?” When Duan Ling Tian heard her, he was unable to make heads or tails from it.
Feng Tian Wu continued to feed the porridge to Duan Ling Tian and slowly explained. “Actually, I, my Father, Grandpa Kong, and Grandma Xu only came to this city a few years ago… At that time, this city wasn’t called Phoenix Nest City yet.”
Duan Ling Tian was shocked as he never imagined that the City Governor, Feng Wu Dao, was actually not someone from this city.
After Feng Wu Dao arrived, he’d become the City Governor in a short amount of years, and even obtained the respect of the residents of Phoenix Nest City…
Such ability was shocking.
“Then where are all of you from?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“The Darkhan Dynasty,” Feng Tian Wu said slowly.
“Darkhan Dynasty!” Duan Ling Tian was shocked.
But when he recalled Feng Tian Wu’s natural talent in the Martial Dao and Feng Wu Dao’s unfathomable strength, he came to an understanding.
Perhaps, only someone from the Darkhan Dynasty was able to possess such terrifying natural talent and strength.
“The destiny you spoke off earlier is?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously when he recalled what Feng Tian Wu said earlier.
Feng Tian Wu faintly sighed as she said slowly, “That is the destiny my great grandmother divined for me… She was a powerful diviner and the person I respected the most. But for the sake of divining a way of survival for an ominous person like me, she wasted the last 20 years of her lifespan.” As she finished speaking, Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful face was covered in tears.
Duan Ling Tian was completely puzzled when he heard this, could it be that this diviner was similar to the fortune tellers of his previous life?
But Duan Ling Tian had never believed these things in his previous life.
“Don’t be sad… Since your great grandmother chose to do this, then it’s sufficient to show she loved you very dearly. I presume that if she was aware in the afterlife, she wouldn’t be willing to see you like this.”
Although Duan Ling Tian didn’t believe in divining or destiny, Feng Tian Wu’s current appearance that was like a pear blossom bathing in rain still caused him to be unable to bear it and he hurriedly consoled her.
Under his consoling, Feng Tian Wu finally recovered back to her previous self.
“Do you think that the so called destiny is extremely illusory and unreal?” Feng Tian Wu looked at Duan Ling Tian’s eyes and asked abruptly.
Feng Tian Wu’s beautiful eyes were pure and flawless, like two beautiful gems that caused Duan Ling Tian’s feelings to surge.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t deny when faced with this question of Feng Tian Wu’s and he nodded.
Feng Tian Wu slowly said, “At the beginning, I was unwilling to believe it as well… Until that day in the Groom Search Competition’s arena when I myself acknowledged that my strength was inferior to you. Only at that moment did I believe that destiny my great grandmother divined wasn’t illusory and unreal.”
“What do you mean?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Feng Tian Wu in interest.
“Do you know why my Father brought me to this city at the extreme south of Darkstone Empire?” Feng Tian Wu answered her own question. “It’s precisely because of the destiny my great grandmother divined… According to my great grandmother, I would encounter the man in my destiny when I was 20 years old at the southernmost city of the Darkstone Empire, Phoenix Nest City.” As she spoke up to here, a wisp of a blush appeared on Feng Tian Wu’s peerlessly beautiful face. “So, after my Father became the Governor of this city, he changed the name of the city to Phoenix Nest City.”
“My great grandmother said that the man in my destiny is from the south, and he would appear at a certain time during the year I turn 20. She asked my father to hold a Groom Search Competition for me at that time, and use the Soul Transformation Fruit she left behind as my dowry.”
Feng Tian Wu continued. “I just turned 20 this year… My Father believed my great grandmother’s words, so he held a Groom Search Competition during the time frame my great grandmother spoke of, only for the sake of waiting for the appearance of the man in my destiny. The ten days of the Groom Search Competition was the time frame my great grandmother divined that man would appear…
“According to what my great grandmother said, that man’s age doesn’t exceed 25 and would defeat me during the Groom Search Competition.”
“Based on my strength, not to mention in the remote cities of the Darkstone Empire, even if it’s in the entire Darkhan Dynasty, a young genius that is able to defeat me while being below 25 years of age is an existence like phoenix feathers and qilin horns.”
“During the first nine days of the Groom Search Competition, although many people had come, there wasn’t a single person that could withstand a single move from me. When I saw the arrival of the third day, a thought arose within my heart… Perhaps, it really was my great grandmother who was mistaken. Only until you appeared and defeated me did I know that the destiny my great grandmother wasted 20 years of her lifespan to divine wasn’t fruitless.”
After she finished speaking, Feng Tian Wu looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked. “Are you from the south?”
Feng Tian Wu’s words caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to regain his senses for a while.
To him, everything Feng Tian Wu said was too profound.
He didn’t believe in this.
“Exactly, I’m from the south… But, perhaps all of this is only a coincidence?” Duan Ling Tian said to Feng Tian Wu.
He was from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, and the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom was indeed to the south of the Darkstone Empire.
“Coincidence?” Feng Tian Wu shook her head, then went silent for a moment before saying, “Don’t worry, if you’re unwilling, then I won’t force you.”
“I didn’t mean it that way… I…” Presently, Duan Ling Tian didn’t know what to say.
