Chapter 723 – Reason

Facing the “pardon” Feng Xue’er exchanged using her tears, Feng Tianwei’s actions were considered extremely shameless and despicable. Especially since he was the Phoenix Grand Sect Master, the exceptionally strong level six Monarch. He lost all his dignity and pride. However, everyone who witnessed this, except for Feng Xue’er, did not feel shock nor did anyone feel that it was inappropriate.

This of course included Yun Che.

The blood debt he owed after bringing chaos to the Divine Phoenix Sect, his incomparably terrifying strength, ruthless and venomous personality, and his evident irregular feelings for Feng Xue’er… Every single one of these points was enough to spur Divine Phoenix Sect to kill him, regardless of the costs!

And this, was the best opportunity to kill Yun Che!

Even if they were to be labeled by the entire world as despicable and shameless, they definitely could not allow Yun Che, who had retracted his domain, to leave here alive. Even Feng Tianwei himself was the first person to take action.

This profound light that originated from Feng Tianwei was swift and ferocious. Just the sound of the shattering space transmitted to every corner of Divine Phoenix City. However, even before everyone managed to hear the sound of the shattering space, the fatal profound light had already reached Yun Che and stabbed straight at his vitals.

As for Yun Che, he was still using his full strength to retract the Golden Crow Domain and did not react even slightly… or perhaps, in his current condition, Yun Che was no longer able to react to this swift and suddenly profound light attack.

“Yun Che… die!!” Feng Ximing stared intensely at the air as his eyes revealed a hideously ecstatic look.

Boom!!

A deafening exploding noise rang in the sky, but it was not the sound of the profound light hitting Yun Che.

Right when Feng Tianwei’s flaming profound light was within fifteen meters of Yun Che, another eye catching flaming light suddenly appeared and knocked against the flaming profound light… Instantly, the course the flaming profound light was flying largely changed. The profound light that was originally aiming straight at Yun Che had hit the space behind him and disappeared into the sky.

Yun Che had not been harmed in the slightest. Only the back of his clothes tore apart due to the violent ripples of air.

Feng Tianwei’s face instantly darkened. Feng Ximing’s expression that had distorted in ecstasy was also stuck plastered on his face.

Beside Yun Che, Feng Xue’er had moved from Yun Che’s side to his front and her back stuck closely onto Yun Che’s chest. Her snow hands stretched out and a ball of scarlet flames ignited on her palm… Before this, the flames that Feng Xue’er ignited had always been warm and gentle, but now, the mediocre sized flame was shaking exceptionally vigorously.

The streaks of tears of Feng Xue’er had not dried up. She wore an expression of pain, heart ache, disbelief… and even a tinge of despair.

Vicious, shameless, evil, despicable… in her entire life, these were words that she had only used in the Primordial Profound Ark on Ye Xinghan and Feng Feiyan. These two people were the first two people that she had ever had the emotion of “hatred” in her entire life.

However, this time… it was brought to her by her loved ones.

“Why…” She muttered, uncertain whether she was questioning her own loved ones or whether she was questioning the world, “Grandfather… Why did you do this!!!”

“…” Feng Tianwei remained speechless as his heart was in a deep shock.

Although the fire profound light was a sudden action, it had not been rushed. He had patiently accumulated energy for countless breaths of time. Therefore, that profound energy was Feng Tianwei’s unrestrained full strength. He strongly believed that even if it were not an exhausted Yun Che but a Yun Che at full strength, there was no way he could avoid it and he would definitely die upon being hit.

With Feng Xue’er innocence, she would not have expected that Yun Che would be suddenly attacked. Therefore, she must have reacted the instant after the attack went out, before it managed to hit Yun Che…

An action made with such haste, if she were able to use thirty percent of her powers, it would have already been the limit. Yet, she manage to deflect the fire profound light that he had sent at full strength!

“Xue’er, you’re still young, you definitely won’t be able to understand…” Feng Hengkong replied in pain, “However, doing this is really for the sake of our entire clan! When you grow up and understand the laws of the world, you’ll be able to understand.”

“I indeed do not understand… and will never be able to understand!” Feng Xue’er snow white face was filled with sadness. The Phoenix flame in her hand did not extinguish as her other hand held onto Yun Che’s arm tightly. She used her entire body and flame to protect him, “I only know you have murdered countless Blue Wind citizens… I only see that Big Brother Yun chose to forgive, yet you all want to kill him and you use such… such despicable means!

“Royal Father… Grandfather… You aren’t supposed to be such people!”

Upon saying her last sentence, the tears that she had fought so hard to resist fell once again. This had also caused Feng Hengkong as well as the other Divine Phoenix Sect members’ hearts to wince.

“No need to speak much more,” Feng Tianwei coldly said, “Xue’er won’t be able to grow up in an instant and Yun Che must die today no matter what. Especially since we have already acted this way against him… With his cruel personality, if he does get to leave, he’ll definitely take revenge in the future…”

Feng Tianwei’s words were something that everyone knew clearly. He chose to retract his domain when he had full advantage, allowing Divine Phoenix Sect to escape from the verge of extinction. However, they had acted viciously after he had pardoned them. No matter how magnanimous a person was, he would undoubted bear extreme hatred… needless to say Yun Che!!

If he did not die, his revenge in the future… was something that made everyone shudder simply by thinking about it.

Feng Hengkong gritted his teeth as his crushed heart held a slight hesitation. He chose not to look Feng Xue’er in the eye again and coldly ordered, “All elders listen up, seal off all of Yun Che’s escape routes. Kill him at all cost!!”

“Yes!!”

Feng Xue’er, “…”

Upon receiving Feng Hengkong’s orders, all the elders rose into the air and formed a large circle which trapped Yun Che in the center… However, Feng Xue’er stood firmly in front of Yun Che, their bodies stuck closely together. All the elders looked on but none of them dared to act rashly.

“Xue’er, come to royal father’s side.” Feng Hengkong slowly rose into midair and stretched his hand out towards Xue’er, “Even if you were to blame me, hate me, it’s fine… We definitely must kill Yun Che today. When you get older, you’ll understand royal father’s pains.”

Feng Xue’er did not shake her head but also did not move away from Yun Che. Even her tears had stopped falling. Surrounding her, all the familiar faces that usually gave her warmth and kindness now became exceptionally frightening. All the usually gentle and caring faces and gazes were now unusually foreign and disgusting…

She finally started to understand the meaning of the words Yun Che told her three years ago in Phoenix Perching Valley…

“Big Brother Yun, I want to grow up more quickly. When I’m twenty, I’ll be able to leave Divine Phoenix Nation and travel anywhere I want.”

“…Xue’er, I’d rather you never grow up.”

“Ah? Why?”

“Because as you get older, you will begin to understand more. However, as you understand more, you will lose even more, and these things that you lose can never be recovered… Although you’ll be able to expand your horizon, the things you’ll see will not be the good of the world, but instead its darkness and ugliness… Especially since you’re the Divine Phoenix Princess, you’ll be forced to shoulder the future of Divine Phoenix Sect.”

“Hmm…?”

………………

“Royal father, can you give Xue’er a reason?” Feng Xue’er’s voice sounded rather uncertain.

“Xue’er, he killed four of your royal brothers… and so many of our clansmen! Is this not reason enough!” Feng Hengkong shouted agitatedly.

Feng Xue’er slowly shook her head and replied softly, “There are many things that I do not comprehend. But, regarding this matter, I understand completely… the person that killed them was not Big Brother Yun but you, royal father!

“It was precisely because royal father issued orders to invade Blue Wind Nation, trampled over the peace of the citizens of Blue Wind Nation, dyed their rivers with blood, causing even the death of Big Brother Yun’s royal father… which made Big Brother Yun come to take revenge and stop the fighting! This was the reason why they’d die… royal father, do you really not understand that you’re the reason behind all these?! These are all retribution for the mistakes that you have committed… They did not die because of Big Brother Yun, they died because of you, royal father.”

“…” Feng Hengkong’s body shuddered as his face turned completely pale. Similar voices had attacked his heart more than once in recent times. It had nearly turned into a nightmare that he could not escape from. For Feng Xue’er to say such words, it was simply more heartbreaking than a nightmare. He hissed, “Xue’er… you don’t understand… you really don’t! The reason why royal father did all of this was for the future of our Divine Phoenix Sect… it concerns the life and death of our entire clan!”

“For the sake of our own survival, you can willfully trample and destroy other nations and their citizens!” Feng Xue’er shouted.

“Xue’er can’t you be obedient?” Feng Ximing uttered with a pleading look, “The strong feasts on the weak. This is the most basic law of the world. The progression of Profound Sky Continent, the rise and prosperity of empires were all brought about by battles…”

“But is what we did actual battles?!” Feng Xue’er angrily cut off Feng Ximing’s words, her gaze and voice trembling, “The prerequisite of battles is to ensure the safety of innocent civilians. This is something even an infant would know. The creation and prosperity of an empire’s most basic and fundamental rule is stability and winning the hearts of people. However, what did the Divine Phoenix Sect do in Blue Wind… slaughter innocent lives, burn down cities, destroy land… This is simply massacre… an act devoid of any human nature!”

Feng Hengkong’s lips trembled as he was rendered speechless.

Feng Xue’er placed her hand on her heart. The pain she felt there was simply heart wrenching, “I, Feng Xue’er, was born in Divine Phoenix City, and received the grace of Lord Phoenix God upon birth. Received the care of grandfather, royal father and the entire clan. I saw that no one within Divine Phoenix Nation oppressed others who were weaker than them… All these years, I had felt lucky and proud to be royal father’s daughter and a citizen of Divine Phoenix Nation. I relied on royal father and respected every single clan member and even believed that royal father was the most noble person in the world and that the Divine Phoenix Sect that I was born in was the most noble sect and family. Everyday, I reminded myself that I must use all my abilities to inherit the Lord Phoenix God’s will and carry Divine Phoenix Sect’s future on my shoulders…”

“…Xue’er…” Feng Hengkong closed his eyes slowly.

“However, is all this… simply just a facade? For the sake of our own survival and prosperity, we kill innocent citizens like devils…. Millions of lives were lost and we turned a nation into a living hell… Even if the Divine Phoenix was able to become the world’s strongest by dyeing itself with the blood of countless innocent people and carried numerous sins… It would only make me feel fear and disgust. Even Lord Phoenix God would not be able to accept or pardon this.”

“…” Feng Hengkong’s chest suffocated as he felt as though he had been suppressed by a heavy steel board. His mixed feelings even caused his consciousness to feel fuzzy.

At this moment, an extremely violent torrent of profound energy suddenly exploded forth from within the heavy and suppressed space. Feng Tianwei, who had stayed silent the entire time, suddenly made a move. His hand, which was burning with scarlet flames, was like a devil’s blood-drenched claw as it struck straight towards Yun Che’s heart.

Everyone, including Feng Hengkong and Feng Ximing who were closest to him, were caught off guard as well.

When Feng Tianwei made his move, he was merely less than a hundred meters away from Yun Che. Suddenly making a move at such a distance, forget about Yun Che, even if it was an expert at the same level, without any defenses prepared, it was still extremely possible to be severely injured with a single strike.

To Feng Tianwei, Yun Che had to die today no matter what… With him dead, future troubles could be prevented, and Feng Xue’er’s feelings could be severed as well. As for other matters, they could be slowly alleviated in the future. After all, the phoenix bloodline flowed in Feng Xue’er’s body. After all, she was the daughter of the Divine Phoenix Imperial Family.

At such a close distance, a level six Monarch unleashed his full strength while everyone was caught unawares. Feng Tianwei had absolute confidence that in the next instant, he could slice Yun Che into ribbons, and then burn his corpse and bones into nothingness.

However, when his hand had just reached a distance thirty meters away from Yun Che, a pressure, heavy to the point where the blood in his entire body had seemingly frozen up instantly, suddenly descended from the sky. His movements abruptly turned sluggish, and following after, his line of sight was completely shrouded by a scarlet red light that had suddenly appeared…

      1. “and the only way this curse upon your and your descendants will ever be removed is if Yun Che or his children ever decide to forgive you for your crimes and remove it for you!”

        …at which point the DPE drown in their own ocean of vomited blood.

    1. that better be the end. Since at this point extermination doesn’t seem an option forcing them to live as trash is the only way to make them all pay for what they did.

    2. I’m actually expecting that outcome since phoenix started invading Blue wind.

      I believe xue’er will ask yun che to help her do it since they both have a fraction of the phoenix soul

  1. Thx for the chapter so Xue’r at the very least won’t be another little aunt huh… i have my guesses of what will happen in the next arc, i hope Mars won’t use his predictable plots on her…

    1. Are we reading the same story?? This shit has been a downward slide since like chapter 300. The author has zero creativity left all it is cliche after cliche and rewriting MC’s personality to some lovesick fuck machine.

      1. Indeed, ATG is one of the few series i use MTL for spoilers, considering how shallow and predictable the writing is 🙁
        Still, I find it better than most xianxia novels filled with tropes(like 70% of them out there lol) out there, better than MGA was at 800 chaps at least.

        1. Better than MGA? Damn you hurt me there. Well i won’t argue, but if you look at the commennt section of MGA, 4 chapters out of 5 you will only see “thanks for the champter” comments.

          Of course it can mean a lot of things but when you look at ATG’s comment section, 99 out of 100 chapters are full of “This chapter is useless/The author just writes fillers/If there’s another tournament i’ll drop ATG/and so on” comments. I guess that has a lot of meaning at least 🙂

        1. When you write something on the internet and put it out to the public to see, you are going to get different criticisms and opinions about it. People can read this novel while being critical of it at the same time. On the extreme off chance the author reads comments on wuxiaworld, this type of feedback is actually useful to being a better writer.

          1. “this type of feedback is actually useful to being a better writer.”
            I have not seen a statement more false than this in at least a few days now. There is zero ‘constructive’ element to his criticism, it is start to finish moaning about how awful ATG has been for the last 400 chapters and how much he hates it, with no other content.

            The singular purpose his comment serves is to make himself look stupid, because instead of doing something intelligent like “stop interacting with (thing) he hates so much and move on with his life”, he instead reads every chapter then posts about how much he hated it all. If you even dream for a nanosecond that the probability of the author ever taking the time to translate and read that particular comment instead of spending his time writing more chapters is over 0%, ESPECIALLY if you imagine he could possibly gain something useful from reading it, then I’m going to have to diagnose you as being delusional.

            Come on man, please at least think before you post.

        2. The issue you have is you take peoples criticisms of this LN as personal attacks on yourself. While you are free to respond and rage at people who don’t like the direction the novel has gone over the past 400 chapters, you won’t get anywhere with it. ATG and MGA are repetitive and extremely formulaic. That was the criticism of the guy you are shitting on for his opinion, and that is a totally valid critic because its completely true.

          For me personally, I continue to read this because I enjoy the power system, that’s the only thing this LN has going for it unfortunately, you being incapable admitting that this LN has some serious issues shows that you may not be the best person to toss shade at someone expressing their feeling about this. You are, in some ways, like him, just on the other end of the spectrum.

          Its telling that the only rebuttal you had for me was my statement about the writer looking at the comments. You know that the quality of this LN is not high by any means, but you defend it because you are a fanboy. Nothing wrong with that, but don’t pretend to be impartial.

          1. “The issue you have is you take peoples criticisms of this LN as personal attacks on yourself.”
            Okay, mind showing where I do that? You just made an interesting claim against me, so I would like you to actually back it up. Where do I take attacks on the LN as attacks on myself?

            “ATG and MGA are repetitive and extremely formulaic. That was the criticism of the guy you are sh*tting on for his opinion, and that is a totally valid critic because its completely true.”
            Criticism is only useful at someone in the same field doing similar works. Even then in a creative work, 99% of the time it’s a f*cking insult trying to tell someone their work is flawed and you know better than them about what their vision was. Even worse being some random idiot. That’s like going to a museum and then b*tching about the art and yelling to the creators about how you’d have painted it.

            “you being incapable admitting that this LN has some serious issues shows that you may not be the best person to toss shade at someone expressing their feeling about this.”
            Don’t keep trying to put words into my mouth and then hold me to those things I have never said, thanks.

            “Its telling that the only rebuttal you had for me was my statement about the writer looking at the comments.”
            There is no meat to your statement, at all, it was a rubbish statement and the fact that you believe there’s anything else worth responding to in it is frankly a good joke. Let’s have a quick detailed breakdown of it:
            1: “When you write something on the internet and put it out to the public to see, you are going to get different criticisms and opinions about it.”
            Okay, how does that relate to the situation at hand? My point is that the guy that I was responding to is doing something he clearly detests and could easily stop doing, but is not stopping despite that being the intelligent move.
            2: “People can read this novel while being critical of it at the same time.”
            I can understand that but constantly b*tching isn’t needed. Finish up and form a conclusion at the end. If you hate it that much then stop, you can at any time. They whine like a f*cking woman.
            3: “On the extreme off chance the author reads comments on wuxiaworld”
            Delusional.
            4: “this type of feedback is actually useful to being a better writer.”
            If I was the author, at best I would ignore the idiot and at worst I’d tell him to f*ck off and do a better job if he hates it so much. There is no point to his argument, no constructive element of it to take away, it’s one random disgruntled person ranting about how he hates the novel for less than 40 words with no meat to his argument and no conclusion to it to an author whom he has zero right or credibility in telling them how to do it better. The fact that you think otherwise is utterly laughable.

            P.S: Please learn how to respond to the correct post instead of the one before it, thanks.

        3. Don’t know how to respond to the other comment on mobile so gotta respond to this one.

          I guess me saying you are taking it personally is how aggressive and angry you seem when you respond. The dudes going to continue replying and expressing his dislike to this novel because, like you, he has an emotional interest the LN, just the opposite of you. You have an emotional attachment to this LN which makes you feel the need to defend it. He has a hatred of the character and plot and enjoys tearing it down. You are both free to do that. I guess what I’m getting at, is it’s kinda silly to get mad at someone commenting on a poorly written light novel. If they like it they like it, if they don’t they are free to continuing shitting on it. You aren’t going to stop him.

          1. Replying is easy: simply reply to the latest possible comment in the comment chain, even if it is your own comment. You’re responding to my most recent comment that has a ‘Reply’ button by it instead of the most recent one by anybody, which is causing the conversation to keep branching off into a new chain.

            I’m always a bit irate, especially in the face of stupidity. I’m an extremely patient man as I’m willing to explain things a hundred times over if need be until it sticks, but I will always have a bit of rage simmering right below the surface in the face of absurd logic.

            Again, all I did was point out that he hates the novel and that he has two options as a result of that; one smart option and one self destructive option. The smart option is to stop reading and move on with his life, whereas the self destructive option is to keep doing the very thing he hates so much and then complain that he hates it. At the end of the day he is nothing but a troll and a sh*t poster, and yet you were trying to defend his post as if it was sage advice given by a famous art critic. Of course I’m going to appear irate in the face of something that absurd, with my detestation of stupidity as a whole.

        4. For some reason, when the comment chain goes one level lower, I can’t seem to see a reply option at all, not sure why that is…

          You are right, I was defending him, but not for providing “sage advice” more along the lines of him being free to express his dislike for the series as much as he wants. You have to keep in mind, people read LN’s for many different reasons, some people enjoy the story. Some spent so long reading a series, that even when it becomes shit, the time investment spent getting into the characters and plot aren’t worth ditching the story just because its getting bad.

          Others love to hate the MC, which seems to be true for ATG for many people. Yun Che is hard to like and can at times seem like something worse then an antihero. A bad or poorly written MC can bring the entire quality of an LN down because the MC = the Story for all of the titles on this website. Reading the next chapter just to complain about how garbage a MC is can be enjoyable for people (vast majority of commentors on ATG posts imo). I understand your point, but I see the logic in what they are doing as well. They find enjoyment from the LN due to exact opposite reasons you find enjoyment from it, its not self destructive because they aren’t really hurting themselves, at most it seems to be effecting you because you chose to respond to such criticisms.

          TLDR; People love to shit on things on the internet because it can be enjoyable, ignoring stupid opinions is an important skill set to have if you spend any amount of time on it.

  2. Thanks for the chapter SummerRain, Scrya, Dabuyu, and Alyschu! I wonder if Yun Che could also suppress the phoenix bloodline in other people since he has the other half of the soul, or if it’s something unique to Xue’er.

  3. Thanks for the chapter.

    BTW you all aren’t thinking wildly enough.
    Wouldn’t it be interesting if the scarlet red light was Jasmine appearing and whilst kicking divine phoenix ass she pretends that she is his Senior Apprentice.

    Edit: Damn seems my wish wont come to pass looking at the teaser

  4. “However, even before everyone managed to hear the sound of the shattering space, the fatal profound light had already reached Yun Che and stabbed straight at his vitals.”- So did it did it not hit him/ And what’s with this drama and doing the same move again.

  5. Found typos:

    “No need to speak much more,” [Feng Hengkong] coldly said, “Xue’er won’t be able to grow up in an instant and Yun Che must die today no matter what. Especially since we have already acted this way against him… With his cruel personality, if he does get to leave, he’ll definitely take revenge in the future…”

    [Feng Hengkong’s] words were something that everyone knew clearly. He chose to retract his domain when he had full advantage, allowing Divine Phoenix Sect to escape from the verge of extinction. However, they had acted viciously after he had pardoned them. No matter how magnanimous a person was, he would undoubted bear extreme hatred… needless to say Yun Che!!

    Here’s the LNMTL version:

    „It is not no need saying that” [Feng Tianwei] said in a low voice: „Xue’er is impossible to grow up all of a sudden. But Yun Che is must die today in any event. Especially to his got rid a moment ago … By he ruthless spicy disposition, if made him leave seriously, his future retaliation …”

    The [Feng Tianwei] words, everyone is well aware. The opposite party under the overwhelming superiority, finally chose to receive the domain, let Divine Phoenix Sect from the edge extrication of destruction, but they actually suddenly struck a vicious blow after his forgiveness. Even if a benevolent person , will therefore have surely the extremely heavy hatred … Let alone Yun Che!!

    (It seems the one who spoke was Feng Tianwei and not Feng Hengkong in the above 2 paragraphs.)

  6. Found a missing line:

    Feng Hengkong gritted his teeth as his crushed heart held a slight hesitation. He chose not to look Feng Xue’er in the eye again and coldly ordered, “All elders listen up, seal off all of Yun Che’s escape routes. Kill him at all cost!!”

    [Missing]

    Feng Xue’er, “…”

    Here’s the LNMTL version:

    Feng Hengkong clenches teeth, grinds in the heart originally a small hesitation, no longer looks at the eye of Feng Xue’er, the sinking sound track: „Elders obey orders, block Yun Che all escape routes, does not hesitate all means to rumble to kill him!!”

    [„Yes!!”]

    Feng Xue’er: „…”

  7. “Great, maybe this will answer all the people from the previous chapter’s comment section who were complaining that they didn’t understand why the DPE attacked Yun Che immediately after he started retracting his domain and was vulnerable. Perhaps now they will all stop whining constantly.”

    …is what I would LIKE to say, but hater’s gonna hate, no matter how illogical they are being.

  8. So Feng Xue’er also knows about the Dou Tian thing with Yun Che and she should also know about the Primordial Ark cause Yun Che transmitted everything the moment he arrived at Profound Sky Continent right? Or its just about the Blue Wind Nation?

  9. SO Princess Snow what will you do by taser it seems like either you curse them or you exterminate them… i hope former cause it is more fun kekeke 😀

  10. When will xianxia authors ever learn… If someone is in the air it’s useless to urround him with a circle. You gotta form a goddamn sphere. Dammit. Isn’t that obvious? Why does everyone assemble in circle to surround cultivators who are in the air? They just have to go up or down to escape… Well if they are faster than their opponents of course. But if they aren’t what’s the point in surrounding them?

    Thanks for the champter anyway.

    1. Typically because you can’t escape up or down, you have to change direction to one of the sides sooner or later. Only the highest levels of cultivators can enter the vacuum of space, and few if any try to escape through the ground.

      So you go up trying to get over their circle of surrounding cultivators, only for all of them to also go up the same amount as you. How does that really help you?
