Chapter 165: Ling Family’s Ling Yun
“Come, little sister, I’ll bring you there……Big brother Tian, lead the way!” Su Fei Fei let go of Ye Tian Xie. She walked beside Broken Heart and intimately grabbed her arm while she revealed a charming yet angry look at Ye Tian Xie.
Ye Tian Xie revealed a gentle smile and turned around to walk forward. Seeing that he was about to leave, a person walked out in front of him which made Ye Tian Xie stop in his steps.
“Let me see your face.” Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds had a sharp gaze and an indifferent look on his face. He was standing right in front of Ye Tian Xie and his eyes fell onto the Headband of Bravery. Perhaps it was customary, but not only was his voice cold, it also had a commanding tone to it.
Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds had a very imposing manner, but this did not relate to his game world stats and strength at all. Instead, it was the strength nurtured through experiences over a long period of time. It was not something normal people could have or something that could be obtained a short period of time. His tone clearly showed that he was used to ordering people around and was used to revealing a superior stance. Facing anyone else, he could easily force them to back down like this, but facing Ye Tian Xie, he had clearly found the wrong opponent.
Ye Tian Xie coldly replied, “If you beat me, you’ll be able to find out. Weak ones have no right to make this proposal. The current you, is not qualified!”
The cold glow in Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds’ eyes sparkled. After staring at Ye Tian Xie for a while, he silently turned to leave.
“Ling Yun, long time no see.” Zuo Po Jun walked over and shouted out at Ling Yun’s leaving figure with his thick voice.
Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds’ foot stopped and he turned around.
“Yo! I never thought that this world would be smaller than that beautiful contaminated world. I have actually met someone I shouldn’t be meeting in this abnormal place. Ling Yun, it’s been three years. I wish to see you as much as having the sun in the sky burning my beautiful skin, making me wish it never appeared again.” Following closely behind Zuo Po Jun, Murong Qiu Shui spoke in a sinister voice. His voice made Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds look at him and visibly narrow a bit, immediately recognizing this person.
“Zuo Po Jun, Murong Qiu Shui!” After stopping, he narrowed his eyes and called out their names.
“Bingo! It seems like your memory isn’t getting worse with age. When you called my name, your eyes filled with uncertainty……Ou! I could even feel your heart beating faster, which means that your thoughts of me were flooding forth. You were definitely thinking about the beautiful moment we had three years ago.” Murong Qiu Shui’s spirit soared and his peach blossom eyes filled with affection. This pair of moving eyes were enough to make anyone feel completely enamoured.
Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds’ cold face twitched and he let out a cold snort. He turned around once again and coldly walked away……Moreover, his steps were clearly faster than before.
Zuo Po Jun gathered himself in front of Murong Qiu Shui. In a low voice, he gritted his teeth as he said, “You’re really ruthless! You made that brat run away in disgust.”
“Oh!! Disgust……What a hateful word. Beloved third brother, how can you say that about your beautiful fourth brother? He clearly had no way of resisting my passion, so he chose to leave without saying a word.” Murong Qiu Shui said with a slightly bitter look on his face.
Zuo Po Jun: “…….”
Broken Heart’s mouth opened wide as she looked at the “beautiful elder sister” Murong Qiu Shui with shock……Because everything he said made him seem like he was crazy. Su Fei Fei giggled beside her ear and said, “Little sister Chen Xin, he’s always like that, so there’s no need to care about him……Let’s talk as sisters…..Wu, how did you and Tian…..My boyfriend meet?”
[TL Note: Broken Heart’s name is 破碎辰心 which means Broken Chen Xin, but I felt Broken Heart sounded better. That’s why Su Fei Fei calls her Chen Xin.]
Su Fei Fei pulled Broken Heart to the side and used a small voice to talk to her. It was clear she wanted to get to the bottom of this. Ye Tian Xie looked at Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds’ leaving figure and then Zuo Po Jun and Murong Qiu Shui moving in front of him as he asked, “Do you know him?”
“Is second brother interested in him?” Zuo Po Jun asked back.
“He, daring to use that kind of expression before you and Qiu Shui, there are only a few people in China who would do this.” Ye Tian Xie revealed a meaningful smile.
“He is called Ling Yun and is indeed not a simple character. Three years ago, he fought with Qiu Shui once.” Zuo Po Jun said.
The corners of Murong Qiu Shui’s lips raised and he said in a bitter voice, “That’s why I said that memory is worse than being cooked by the sun, but I can’t forget about it. Three years ago while comparing notes, I wasn’t able to turn his body into a beautiful blood flower on the ground. That was a very unhappy memory.”
“You lost?” Ye Tian Xie asked in astonishment as he slightly knitted his brows.
Zuo Po Jun shrugged, “Of course he didn’t lose, otherwise old fourth would have already gone crazy with his personality……It was a draw, one that was completely even. In terms of people of the same age, old fourth had never lost to anyone before. That year, Ling Yun was still sixteen years old and was younger than old fourth by three months, so that’s why old fourth treats this fight as shameful and remembers it to this day.”
“Why did I not know about this?” Ye Tian Xie asked. With his understanding of Murong Qiu Shui, the way he was holding a grudge like this was not strange at all, rather it was normal to the point where it couldn’t be anymore normal. His innate talents and appearance were all shocking which allowed him to never lose to anyone that was the same age as him. But this Single Slash Soaring Through the Clouds had fought to a draw with him and this was a large blow to him.
Murong Qiu Shui’s neck shrunk down and he embarrassingly said, “This kind of thing that makes the stars embarrassed to show themselves, how could I tell second brother……”
Zuo Po Jun felt goosebumps all over his body and in the past, Murong Qiu Shui honestly said to him, “Beloved third brother, if you dare let second brother know, Ohohohoho……” Thinking of it, he couldn’t help feeling a chill run down his spine from that charming laugh. The most important reason was……Three years ago, Ye Tian Xie was suffering from the blow that almost made him go crazy, which he still had not recovered from.
Because she was the most important thing in Ye Tian Xie’s heart and the weakest string he had. Once this string broke, it was enough to completely shake him.
“Let’s talk about this Ling Yun thing still.” Ye Tian Xie said in a pondering voice.
Zuo Po Jun nodded and said, “To a certain extent, Ling Yun’s existence is a secret because he comes from one of the three forbidden grounds of China.”
“Three forbidden grounds?” This was the first time he had heard this name from Zuo Po Jun before. Something that Zuo Po Jun never took the initiative to mention before, it could be seen that these “three forbidden grounds” were not normal.
Zuo Po Jun looked around himself and then looked over at Su Fei Fei and Broken Heart behind him. Then he said in a small and serious voice, “The three forbidden grounds, are the three forbidden families that even my father would not move against. Every single one of them have a long history to them, lasting for a long time without falling. They all have a terrifying strength and foundation. They are so strong that even the highest political power would not be willing offend or try to control them, they could only allow them to exist. The Ling Family is one of these families. As for Ling Yun, he is the eldest son of this generation and is a genius with high innate talent.”
“Allow them to exist? These words are quite thought provoking.” Ye Tian Xie casually said.
Zuo Po Jun shrugged and helplessly said, “This can’t be blamed on my father, or grandfather, or great grandfather, or my other ancestors. As the highest official, they are not responsible for only a few people or a family, they are responsible for the stability of China, not allowing any influences that threaten the political power of China. But these three forbidden families have this strength……At the same time, how could the three families not think of this? So they have joined their powers together and work together as one. If they were to make a move, then the results would be impossible to imagine. No one would dare to allow this kind of terrifying danger occur.”
“With the grand military you guys control and “Sacred Domain’s” strength, could you really not cope with three trivial families?” Ye Tian Xie eyes narrowed as he gently spoke.
Zuo Po Jun’s voice lowered and he slowly said, “Second brother, their strength completely surpass your imagination. My father does have the ability to destroy them, but he would have to pay a gigantic price. Furthermore, there is even the possibility of failing……The three forbidden families are all filled with terrifying monsters. Second brother, think about it. If the past fifteen year old Ling Yun could fight old fourth to a draw, then how strong would those old fellows be!?”
Ye Tian Xie: “……”
“His sword, is faster than a bullet.” Murong Qiu Shui slowly added this one sentence.
“Second brother, you will definitely not be familiar with the reputation of ancient martial arts families. Before the age of modern weapons, the ancient martial arts families ruled China with countless large and small ancient martial arts families. Being able to last a thousand years is already a thing rarely seen, being able to remain in the annals of history, there is not a single simple person. That person nicknamed “Blade of Hades” Eternal Slaughter is recognized as the successor of the strongest ancient martial arts family in China and had a very high talent with blade arts……But only a few people know that the true strongest ancient martial arts family is not the Ming Family…..but rather the Ling Family!!” Zuo Po Jun said with a careful look on his face. The words he said, there were only a few people in China that knew about this.
“Your Zuo Family allowing them to exist and them being hidden from the public, it seems like your elders have already signed some kind of agreement with them.” Ye Tian Xie thought as he spoke.
Zuo Po Jun looked at Ye Tian Xie with a strange look in his eyes, but he unconsciously nodded, “Second brother, you’ve guessed everything…..That’s right, around a hundred years ago, my elders have signed an agreement with them. The contents generally state……The Chinese government will allow them to exist and would not interfere with their existence, but they were not allowed to extend their claws into the mortal world……To be honest, it was to curb their development, limiting them only to a region that belonged to them. Although my Zuo Family cannot easily deal with them, they are also not arrogant enough to think that they can deal with the Chinese government. Therefore, this agreement has stood for one hundred years, never being broken yet.”
