    Chapter 01 part 2

    “This body’s adaptability with heaven and earth is amazing, so this is what it feels like to have an aura pulse. I need to quickly leave here and recuperate, so I can start training it for both revenge and the coming Selection.” Feng Yu then went outside of the shack and quickly made his way through the district during the foggy morning. 

    The slight cold of the morning was beginning to fade away, after walking out of the district and approaching the central area. Feng Yu noticed that of most shops were already up and running. While some others had also begun to quickly set up for business as people began to gather bit by bit. The citizens of Machen are used to the early activity. Thus, the liveliness of the morning. Some individuals were even doing short exercises in open spaces. 

    One of the peddlers soon noticed Feng Yu passing by and quickly his excited mood began to fade away.

    "Darn! What's this troublemaker doing out so early, could he have something planned today?" he said while trying to hide his most valuable stocks.

    Another peddler overheard and looked up shock, quickly he moved to gather his valuables like his life depended on it.

    The sudden commotion sparked a domino effect and all peddlers began complaining in their hearts, while on the surface acting business friendly.

    Looking at their reactions Feng Yu felt uncomfortable in his heart. “...You know… this Young Master has done nothing wrong, sigh...” he muttered silently in his heart. Sadly, this can’t be helped, the old Feng Yu was too much of a nuisance.

    "God D*mn it! I've got to clear this shitty reputation soon." Feng Yu took a quick glance at them then no longer paid them any mind.

    “Young Master Feng, out so early what are you seeking to buy today?” A peddler worked up some courage to go forward in hopes of driving the evil spirit away. 

    “Nothing! I’m fine just heading home.” Feng Yu quickly gestured at the peddler and made his way towards the north region.

    "Am I dreaming, how could this brat not cause us any trouble in the morning."

    "I don't believe it, maybe he's planning to do something tonight."

    "That's right, sigh we better clear out early today."

    The peddlers didn’t believe him and started making plans for the afternoon. Thankfully, Feng Yu didn’t seem to overhear their following conversations.

    On a large section in the northern region of Machen town. The Feng Manor could be seen with a large courtyard the size of 2 football fields, along with an arrangement of structures surrounding the main building. The gate was of medium-sized by this world’s standard, on it the symbol of the Feng Family Clan being that of the Phoenix was hanged at the highest place, giving off an aura of ancient history and prestige. 

    The Feng Clan was a family with a deep and ancient history which had existed for countless eras. Sadly, due to the mark of time, it began to decline, which lead it to settle down here in Machen town a few years ago.

    Noticing someone approaching the gate dressed in shabby clothing covered with dirt and dried up bloodstains, the guards that were on looking quickly started acting. 

    “Halt! You are approaching Feng Residency, state your purpose for visiting or go back” one of the guards gestured at the figure threateningly while holding his sword. 

    “It’s me Feng Yu, clear the path!” Feng Yu still feeling upset about the encounter with peddlers was obviously still in a bad mood, he shouted at the guards while showing the family token.

    Hearing the familiar voice and seeing the token guard quickly made way and let him through.

    “Young Master Feng, pardon my negligence!” he waved his hand and gate opened letting Feng Yu pass through it after which it was quickly closed. 

    After entering the residence, Feng Yu made his way to the main building from the courtyard, walking along the neatly tiled surface. There were spirt orchard trees paving a path towards the main building creating a wonderful scenery, maids could be seen cleaning the various areas of the courtyard and members of the family were scattered about on the practice field training and doing other activities.

    No longer paying too much attention to the scenery, he quickly went into the main building and headed toward his room. Right when he was about to enter the room he heard a loud beckoning.

    “Feng Yu! Get in Here Now!” The voice of Feng Yun long could be heard echoing even to the guards at the gate.

    Feng Yu looked around towards the main room feeling pensive in his heart, he sighed slightly and slowly started to make his way towards the large door. 
  • Chapter 02 – The will of a True Dragon

    In a brightly lit and very large room, a middle-aged man dressed in simple clothing was seated on top of a strange looking mat. He had dark red hair with streaks of silver appearing at the edges and a hard face that seemed as if it was sculpted by a chisel. His eyes not only showed a trace of weariness but a firm spirit looking to have shouldered most of the wind and rain in life. He was surrounded by piles of documents and in front of him was a table the height of a stool, which had a variety of scrolls scattered about and an ink container placed to the side.

    This man was Feng Yun long the current clan leader of the Feng Clan, with a cultivation achievement of 9th Tier Aura Disciple which was only one pace away from True Foundation Realm. He is one of the strongest individuals in Machen town. 

    “Father, you called for me.” Feng Yu said while closing the door behind him and bowing politely.

    “Come, Sit Down!” Looking at the pale and distressed appearance of his son Feng Yun Long was finding it very difficult to keep his rage at bay. He gestured at Feng Yu to sit in front of the table.

    Feeling a bit complacent in his heart Feng Yu quickly sat down and looked at his father, or rather his new father.

    “Who! Had the gall to Injured You? My Feng Yun Long’s Son. How did this happen to you? Quickly tell father so I can get to the bottom of this Immediately! “

    Seeing the flustered love filled concern and boiling raged filled expression of his father Feng Yu felt something he never had the chance to experience in his previous life. “A parent’s love for their children is a child’s precious treasure indeed...” sighing in his heart, he decided to say his ordeal rather than keep it hidden. Of course, he didn’t reveal the fact of him being reincarnated.

    As was expected of Feng Yun Long, after hearing about the betrayal and treatment his son received from the Xiang and Huan Family’s descendants he only ended up getting angrier.

    “Good! Very Good! Their son’s dare to do this to you. I must have a look what kind of response they will give me today!” he shouted in rage as the surrounding books became a mess and the table flew towards the door slamming onto the ground, due to his overwhelming aura fluctuation in his angered state. Just as he was about to head out the door he was interrupted by Feng Yu.

    “Father, Wait! Let me solve this on my own. A man must learn to solve his own dispute’s, I will beat him to death in the coming talent selection.” A confident expression was shown on Feng Yu's face even though he looked pale and weak due to his wounds. With his knowledge, he was certain that he would be capable of not only securing a quota but also defeating Xiang Shu.

  • Feng Yun Long, on the other hand, was shocked at Feng Yu's sudden declaration, he wondered to himself “…was this my usual Yu‘er, could it be he’s grown up a little after getting beaten down or is he just spouting nonsense.” still regardless he felt proud of the slight change in Feng Yu’s mindset at least it looks like there’s hope for him to improve. But that’s something for future, with less than 2 months left to prepare for the selection. Wanting not only to earn a spot for the quota but also defeating Xiang Shen who was already a Cultivator at the 7th Tier of Body Training Realm was impossible, even for the most startling talents.

    Just as he was about the reject the idea clapping could be heard from behind him, it seemed that he was too emotionally occupied he hadn't noticed someone came inside the room.

    “Clap!” “Clap!” “Clap!”

    “Well said! Brother, I agree with little nephew let him solve his gratitude and grudges.” said a tall man who bore similar facial features to that of Feng Yun Long only he was slim and had a very large scar on the left side of face travel over his left eye.

    This man was called Feng Jun Ling the older brother of Feng Yun Long, he rarely stays in Machen town as he likes to wander and explore the vast continent. He is also the only True Foundation Realm expert in the Feng clan.

    "Brother! There is no way I'm going to let him compete. He still hasn't started training yet, and the selection rules are not within any bounds. It would be far too dangerous.” Not feeling surprised at his brother sudden entry, he denied the possibility of making Feng Yu attempt suicide.

    “But Father I... “not feeling quite convinced Feng Yu wanted to convince his father but was rejected again.

    “No buts! Even if you are talented cultivation takes time and effort. You can always try for a different selection in a different city after you’ve trained properly” Feng Yun Long said in a stern manner.

    “Brother! A true dragon cannot soar the nine heavens if it still lingers in a river. A real man makes due with current and pushes forward given the opportunities.” Feng Jun Ling reproached as he gave Feng Yun Long a meaningful look.

    Hearing what his brother just said, a distant look came over Feng Yun Long. He considered while looking through the window staring at the scenery. Vaguely a form could be seen looking towards him, the form smiled then vanished into thin air.

    “Sigh... A true dragon… your right, it seems I’ve become weary during these years…” a sad gleam soon came over Feng Yun Long’s eyes, but he then quickly recovered and stared at Feng Yu.

  • Feng Yun

    “Yu’er! A real man never backs down no matter what he faces. While the men of Feng are not dragons, we are no inferior. As the Phoenix, it is our duty to challenge the heavens and bear the flames of adversity. For it is only this way that we could stimulate our noble bloodline to be reborn and stand stronger than before. Taking what is rightfully ours.” After which he nodded to Feng Jun Ling and left the room.

    “Father, Yu’er will not disappoint you!” Feng Yu said while feeling excited about his father’s permission and advise. He also began to realize that his family name was more than it seemed, but without strength, there would be no point trying to find out.

    Suddenly he remembered that he hadn’t greeted his uncle. Quickly he placed his hands together and made a bow.

    “Feng Yu Greets Uncle Feng!”

    Looking at the nephew Feng Jun Ling felt proud in his heart, he had always believed that Feng Yu would grow into a powerful expert someday. While he had not shown interest before and spent most of the time idling, it seemed that this recent setback has caused him to develop a new mindset.

    “Growth starts from the heart...” muttering slightly Feng Jun Ling then waved his hand towards Feng Yu, after which a small ring flew towards him.

    "Good! Little nephew here's a little something I got for you. Though, I'm late in handing it over due to missing your coming of age ceremony. Inside there are a few items necessary to cultivators getting started, such as medicinal pills, a few Mortal Tier Martial Skills and the family’s main body cultivation art. There is also a sword placed inside for you to use. Was good, now go treat your injuries and if you have issues with cultivating seek me out whenever you need me.” After saying these he then vanished leaving a remnant shade of his previous self in the location.

    After catching the ring, Feng Yu noticed that it a had a complex engraving with a jewel attached to its core. "It's an inter-spacecial ring!” feeling excited at the fact that he could receive one so early in a small area like this he was satisfied. “This should make things a lot easier!” he quickly placed it on his index right finger and made his way out to his room to recover.

    Standing in a nearby corner looking at Feng Yu’s retreating figure, Feng Jun Ling thought to himself “I wonder… will he really be able to cultivate that art?” with a strange light appearing in his eyes similar the that of flames, it flickered briefly before vanishing. He pursed his lips into a smile and faded away "Don't disappoint me Yu'er."


  • It was approaching noon time and the day could have been said to have arrived at its peak. Wanderers and locals mixed amongst the crowded bustling streets. Merchants were yelling at the top of their lungs to attract sales, and the rowdy atmosphere of commerce was in full swing.

    In eastern district’s most central area, there was a large mansion with a large courtyard comparable to that of the Feng Residence. It was a space with only one massive building and a wide courtyard surrounded by tall walls with an extremely domineering gate, having two giant tiger statues on both sides.

    This was the home of the Xiang Clan, another of the 4 big Family clans within Machen town.

    Inside of the building within a very large room, there was a constructed battle platform on which two figures were currently engaged in heated combat. Off to the sides, two figures were seated on a higher platform chatting while observing the combatants.

    The two forms fighting on the battle platform were Xiang Shu and Huan Shen. Xiang Shu However was currently being pressured by Huan Shan.

    Huan Shan had unleashed a barrage of kicks hitting Xiang Shu's underbelly and sending him flying towards the edge of the platform while coughing up a bit of blood. Seeing such a great opportunity to perform a finishing blow, he then leaned forward and started to sway side to side as if transformed into a snake slithering towards Xiang Shu.

    “Staggering Snake Steps!” within a moment he quickly arrived at the edge of the platform behind the still airborne form of Xiang Shu and quickly unleashed his finishing blow.

    He crouched his body down on the floor assuming running posture, pushing all the power he had into his lower body. Then unleash a kick that lashed out quickly towards Xiang Shu, carrying with it the force of the wind because of its extreme speed.

    “Sreeecccchhhh!”

    The wind echoed as he shot through the air like an arrow. With his focus completely on controlling the force of his kick, Huan Shan cried out “Brutal Snake Strike!”.

    “Ha-ha brother Tian! It looks like my Shan’er will be the one winning this time around. After all, he has already achieved small accomplishment over his Brutal Snake Strike Martial Skill.” observing closely the figure on right was getting excited seeing that his son was gaining the winning edge over his opponent.

    “Don’t be so quick to judge brother Mang, Look the situation is about to change.” Said the figure on the left with a smile on his face carrying a confident appearance.

    “Ha I don’t believe he can make a comeback at this point!” not feeling convinced the figure on the right retorted.

    The figures observing the match were none other 2 of the big clan leaders within Machen town. Located on the right was Huan Mang of the Huan Family and on the left, was Xiang Tian of the Xiang Family. Huan Mang was a slim man wearing decorated loose clothing while Xiang Tian was a robust man with an unshaved beard wearing decorated robes.

    Looking back on the battle platform, when all seemed to have been decided. There was a sudden change.

    As Xiang Shu was about to be defeated a strange glint could be seen in his eyes, it was as if he could see the kick approaching towards him from behind. Quickly he began to maneuver his body while still being airborne as if transformed into a kite, he started to glide in air swaying to the side easily avoiding the potentially fatal kick.

  • “What! How could…” momentarily shocked by witnessing an impossible stunt. Huan Shan lost his balance and fell towards the ground due to the excessive wind pressure.
    “Thud!”Quickly doing a roll on the ground and regaining his balance Huan Shan tried to make a counter-attack but was hindered slightly due to an injury to one of his legs. Sadly, Xiang Shu would never give him another chance for an advantage.“Whoosh!” “Whoosh!” “Whoosh!”“Arial Gliding Steps!” like the wind itself he swiftly appeared behind Huan Shan using the same strange gliding motion, he then raised right hand forming a palm strike which he directed towards Huan Shan’s unguarded back.“Arial Palm Strike!” suddenly a strong burst of wind quickly followed the direction of the palm strike and the wind gathered earlier from the momentum of the technique was now unleashed, pushing Huan Shan away like a leaf blowing in a strong wind. He flew out of the platform and crash into the sidewall creating a small crater on the surface behind him. Following which he pushed himself falling to ground balancing himself while panting heavily.“Thud!”“Arial Gliding Steps, Arial Palm Strike! How can this be? Did your brat finally achieve initial comprehension of your family’s two Advance Level Mortal Tier Skills.” Slamming hard on the table Huan Mang looked at the victorious Xiang Shu on the platform while shouting in surprise."Ha! What do you think? After 5 months of training, he's finally grasped initial comprehension away from small success stage by one pace.” With a gloating expression on his face, he then waved at both Huan Shan and Xiang Shu to make their way over to them.“Incredible! Looks like your Xiang clan is truly a destined place for talented successors. First Xiang Fang and now Xiang Shu. “Huan Mang praised while sighing in his heart while noticing the Xiang’s family upward trend.
     

  • sigh this input box gives me too much trouble
  • “Greetings Clan Leaders!” soon arriving in front of their fathers Xiang Shu and Huan Shan then bowed respectful and responded in unison.Looking at his son proudly for a moment Xiang Tian then said in a strict tone “Did you accomplish the task given to you?”.Hearing his fathers question he quickly replied “Yes Father! We made sure to take care of that brat last night during the town event. Huan Shan also did some interworking behind the scenes which ensured that there were no witnesses in the old district as well.”"Good Work! Now that the nuisance is gone we can …" feeling excited Xiang Tian praised and then looked towards Huan Mang in preparation to discuss the next phase of their plans. But suddenly, he was interrupted by a loud commotion.“Slam!”The Large room door that was closed opened in an abrupt manner, rushing in was a man wearing black clothing."Who dares to bare in here without my consent? You there, if you don't give me a good enough explanation for your actions. Then you can forget about leaving here today!" angered by being interrupted Xiang Tian roared at the servant while oppressing him with his aura of an 8th Tier Aura Disciple.Struggling to catch his breath due to the oppression. The servant started gasping and sweating while trying to explain."Cough! Cough! Sorry… clan leader... this servant brought urgent news. The Feng clan leader just released an announcement saying that they will no longer provide weapons and resources to both our Xiang and the Huan Family Clan.”“Boom!”The table was shattered to pieces both Huan Mang and Xiang Tian got up in anger. Huan Mang walk over and shouted towards the servant “Explain to me what is going on here! Why did he do this?”.Quickly dispersing his oppressive aura, Xiang Shan also walked over and said “Quickly Speak! And don’t leave out any details”.Abiding by their commands, the servant began to explain what happened. Feng Yu was alive but severely wounded and upon finding out the cause of Feng Yu’s injuries, the enraged Feng Yun Long then ordered for the provisions of weapons and equipment to no longer be sold to the two clans involved in the case.Hearing that Feng Yu was still alive shocked Xiang Shu, he wanted to explain.

    “Father we…”"Enough!" waving his hand to cut off his son's words Xiang Tian then said "it seems you were not careful enough and did not ensure that the Feng clan kid was dead. Dammit! Now we have to delay our plans.”Looking at the door Xiang Tian gripped his fists so hard it the air started to make noises because of the gathered strength."Brother Xiang! What are we to do now? We can’t do anything to the Feng clan if we fight them directly." Huan Mang was getting anxious he started to wonder if was right to carry on this plan. “Humph! No matter even if he found out it makes no difference, even with his son’s talent it takes time to develop. With so little time left, what could he possibly accomplish? Don't forget my Xiang clan also has Xiang Fang."Hearing the name ‘Xiang Fang’ Huan Mang then began to calm down. The two of them looked out of a large window staring deep into the sky, passing through the clouds, traversing the dangerous mountains that stretched across thousands of kilometers towards the distant horizon.Far… far away… a form could be seen journeying through unknown lands, it was a young man at around age 25 at the prime of his youth, wearing a decorated robe while shouldering a large blade on his back. The young man had a handsome face, but he carried with him a murderous aura as if he had slaughtered countless lives.As if he felt something he looked towards the distance, oddly enough despite it being daytime stars could be seen glittering in his eyes. He muttered in a soft voice that trailed off into the wind ““Father we…”
