Chapter 7

In the blink of an eye, a week had passed, and the Sky Splitting School selection date was getting closer and closer . Machen Town quickly became more crowded with a merry atmosphere . The density of travelers, wanderers, and merchants was only increasing day by day with no sign of ending in the short term .

Within the Feng Manor on the extensive training field, Feng Yu could be seen training non-stop as flashes of white light danced around the area .

Swish! Swish! Swish!

A flash of light was trailing in a straight line within the space of 10 meters . The figure of the young was there for an instant only to vanish once again leaving a white trailing line appearing at another location within 10 meters away .

During this period, Feng Yu had given his undivided attention towards training his <Lightning Flash Steps Technique> . At this point, he already grasped it and was now trying to perfect it .

"Now, this is better . It seems that Top Tier Martial Techniques still take quite a bit of time to master as well, despite having such a powerfully mutated soul . It is still countless times faster than how long it took me to master it this time around compared to my previous life . " Feng Yu was feeling happy at the successful cultivation of his favorite technique .

"It's about time I left for Mount Tydol . " Putting himself together, he went back towards his room to freshen up and prepare for the trip .

After he fully prepared, he donned a dark-greyish robe while stealthily and swiftly making his way out of the Feng Family Manor . After turning a few corners and going through a few different streets, he carefully looked around for a moment trying to find any suspicious characters .

"Seems that I was overreacting . No matter, training comes first . " Feng Yu whispered to himself as he made his way towards the town entrance at a reasonable pace mixing within the bustling crowd .

A few moments later, phasing out of the shadows of a discrete corner, a figure stood silently watching Feng Yu leave the town, carefully observing the direction he went .

Whoosh! Silently the figure vanished from the corner of the street, fading away into the darkness once again .


Xiang Shu was feeling frustrated . He had wanted to try and quickly kill Feng Yu once more to prove himself to his father, despite his warning and the disappointment showed towards him . However, Feng Yu had stayed inside the Feng Manor for almost two weeks .

He was angry at himself for wasting his precious time that should have been used to prepare for the nearing talent selection .

"That bastard! When the selections begin, I'll make sure he knows what it means to live while seeking to die . " Xiang Shu snarled as he bit a spirit fruit, fiercely swallowing it and then chugging down some wine .

Swish! A form suddenly appeared within the room promptly bowing before Xiang Shu with his hands cupped as he politely said: "Young master Xiang, the target has finally begun to move . "

Crash! Quickly tossing aside the wine jar to the ground and breaking it to pieces, he got up excitedly while looking towards the man in black .

"HA! Finally, let us see how you get away this time . Quickly tell me, where is he?" He asked in a commanding tone .

"Replying to Young Master, the target seems to be heading towards Mount Tydol . At his speed, it seems it would take about 3 – 4 days before he reached his destination . "

Excited, Xiang Shu gestured towards the servant and said, "Good! Quickly go and get in touch with the rest of the men . I want his head brought back to me . There is no room for failure!"

"By Young master's command!" The servant vanished after bowing respectfully .


"Feng Yu! Feng Yu! Humph! I am the talent . I am the chosen not you… not Xiang Fang!!!" Xiang Shu muttered with hardly concealed hatred while staring intensely out the window towards the direction of Tydol Mountain Range .


Tydol Mountain Range, a stream of endless mountain ranges that spanned together stretching across the distant horizon seemingly endlessly . It was said to cover about 2,000 kilometers, with each mountain bearing heights that seemed to have stretched to the very threshold of the sky .

Standing in front of the vast mountain range, Feng Yu felt tiny, as if the Mountain shouldered the weight of heavens and earth, while he was nothing more than a part of its burden .

At the outskirts, a few 'Fierce Beasts' could be seen scattered about . These creatures were ordinary beasts that did not have the power of essence . They averaged at the standard battle efficiency of a robust mortal combatant .

Warriors could be seen making their way towards the depths of the mountain range; each wielding their unique weapons . There were some traveling in groups with a few others moving along the outskirts as lone wolves . At the outside of the mountain range, a few construct buildings were in place to accommodate travelers seeking to rest and exchange with each other for medicine and equipment . These construct buildings were glowing with strange runes as a mysterious aura flowed around them . An odd-looking insignia was hung high above them; it was a picture of an unrecognizable silhouette with a giant question mark above it .

"Such an amazing sight indeed . Hmm, the mystery pavilion extends to every unusual place it . " Feng Yu could only let out a sigh of praise at the masterpiece of nature while observing the Tydol Mountain Range and the unique constructs in front of him .

"Is this your first time visiting, fellow traveler?" A voice said a little distance from him .

"I couldn't help but admire it for a moment . " Feng Yu said while looking towards the stranger .

"Yes, it is quite a sight to look at for the first time, but don't get lost in its scenery . The monsters here are no joke!" said the guy dressed in a sleeveless shirt and some loose-fitting long pants with a pair of wooden sandals .

He was about two meters tall, had a muscular physique, black hair and a hard face . Despite this look, it was apparent that he wasn't that much older than Feng Yu: about 1 to 2 years at most . Hung high on his back was a large and odd-looking bow .

"The name's Hui Ying, I'm a traveler that often wanders this area to temper my skills . Fellow Daoist, might I ask what brings you to Tydol Mountain Range at this time?" He said, introducing himself to Feng Yu .

"I'm called Wu Feng, and I'm also on a tempering journey myself . " Seeing that he didn't seem to have a harmful nature, Feng Yu introduced himself with an alias . He still wasn't sure if any of the prominent families in Machen Town were on his trail . He had to play it safe just in case .

"Oh, that's great! "Carefully looking at Feng Yu, he noticed his cultivation was lower than his own . He offered, "Hmm, I know of a good place with a few 5th Star Tier 1 Essence Beasts . Seeing as you are new here, do you want to party up?"

Hearing his offering, Feng Yu couldn't help but get a better impression of this Hui Ying . He politely rejected saying, "It's ok . I'd rather go at it alone my first time here . Tempering myself will require life and death battles . If I went along with you, it would lose meaning . Still, maybe we could meet up again another time and work together . "

An appreciative look appeared in Hui Ying eyes, "Oh . . . Well Wu Feng, best of luck to you on your tempering journey . May we meet again!"


Quickly his form vanished into the distant mountains leaving a series of after images . It was clear that not only was his cultivation at a high level, but his martial skill was also practiced almost to the point of perfection .

"Fast! Such an interesting guy . Hui Ying, we will meet again . " It seemed like, due to his age, he should still be within the range of those being accepted for the talent selections .

No longer paying attention, he swiftly made his way to a deeper part of the mountain range, bypassing all of the low-level beasts .

Soon, more and more powerful creatures started to appear as Feng Yu traveled all the way until his figure completely disappeared from the view of the construct buildings .


Outside of the Tydol Mountain Range, a dozen individuals, wearing black clothing, suddenly appeared . Each of them gave off a cold and murderous aura . The wanderers passing by that saw them quickly gave way and went as far away as possible to avoid getting into unwanted trouble .

"So, where is he?" said one of the figures in black clothing .

"Based on the information given, he should be here already; it seems we're one step behind . He's most likely already traveled into the mountain range . " Another figure said while observing the distant mountain .

"Fine! Let's quickly report back to the young master and get moving . We can't stay out here for too long . " The leading figure soon commanded . Immediately all of them vanished into thin air .
