Chapter 18: Your Future is in Your Own Hands
The group of people were shocked and rushed over to help him up.
Butler Wang was furious and shouted: “All of you, attack!”
Upon hearing his words, the others dashed towards Mu Feng with sticks in their hands.
“Hehe, let me join you all too!”
At this moment, a tall and muscular young man, Mu Kuang, stepped in front of Mu Feng and dashed towards the group of people.
A stick was swung at Mu Feng’s head, but he managed to dodge the attack. He then grabbed hold of the stick and landed a heavy punch on the guy’s face in return.
His punch broke the man’s nose as well as his teeth. Blood splattered everywhere.
At the same time, another two men attacked Mu Feng from both sides simultaneously. The young man shouted in fear, but Mu Feng remained calm and dodged the attacks by stepping half a step backward. Then, he grabbed hold of the two sticks and aimed a roundhouse kick at both of their faces. The two men were sent flying and couldn’t stand up anymore.
Being a Tong Mai Ninth Sky cultivator, Mu Kuang was far more powerful than these men. He punched at a man’s chest, breaking his ribs and causing the man to howl in pain. The man spat out a mouthful of blood and fell on the ground 10 meters away.
In an instant, more than a dozen men were beaten up by Mu Feng and Mu Kuang. All of them laid on the ground and couldn’t get up anymore.
“Wow! That’s awesome!”
“Tsk tsk, I wonder which family he is from. He looks like he’s just 15 or 16 years old, but his fighting skills were amazing!”
“Judging by their clothes, I don’t think they’re locals. He may be a disciple from one of the upper-class families in the capital.”
Some guests from the inn came out to see the fight, and they were amazed by the Mu brothers’ skills. The young man also looked at Mu Feng and Mu Kuang with a hint of admiration.
“Do-don’t think that you guys can get away with this! Let’s go!”
The muscular man said while trembling in fear. The others helped him up, and they left in an instant.
“Brother Feng, yo-your cultivation…”
Mu Kuang looked at Mu Feng in astonishment.
Mu Feng smiled and said: “I’m not stupid. If I really couldn’t cultivate anymore, I wouldn’t have accepted that two year long bet.”
“Haha, I knew it! They were wrong!”
Mu Kuang laughed.
“I believe that, one day, you’ll be able to return to the capital with your chest held high, Brother Feng.”
“Haha, not just me, but we brothers will go back together!”
Both of them exchanged a smile.
“Th-thank you, both of you.”
At this moment, the young man came over and thanked them both. He looked at the both of them who were dressed in fine clothing and had powerful cultivation skills, and a trace of sadness flashed across his eyes.
“Hey kiddo, you’re still young. Out of all the things that you could achieve, why did you choose to steal?”
Mu Kuang said to the young man with a hint of disdain. He never liked people who stole from others.
“Huh, you know nothing. I would starve to death if I don’t steal. You rich kids will never understand war orphans like me.”
As soon as the young man saw the trace of disdain in Mu Kuang’s eyes, his good impression of him vanished instantly.
Upon hearing his words, Mu Feng can’t help but feel sad. Of course he could sympathize with him, as he was an orphan himself. However, he knew that he lived a much better life compared to this young man. Even if Mu Feng really became a cripple, he would never have to steal food because he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth.
“What’s your name?”
Mu Feng asked all of a sudden.
The young man replied.
“Bai Ziyue… Take this money and don’t steal anymore.”
The ring on Mu Feng’s finger lit up and a money bag suddenly appeared. He then placed the money bag into Bai Ziyue’s hand.
Bai Ziyue was stunned when he saw the heavy bag of coins. Mu Feng smiled and said: “Actually, I’m just like you. I’m just much luckier to have been born into a well-off family. Ziyue, nobody in this world can change the circumstances they’re born into. However, your future is in your own hands. As a man, even if we can’t accomplish something big, we should never live our lives like rats.”
Mu Feng smiled and patted the shoulder of the young man who was about his age and slightly shorter than him. After that, he turned and went back to the inn with Mu Kuang.
“Erm… I’m sorry about what I said just now. You can have this too.”
Before leaving, Mu Kuang also untied the money bag on his waist and placed it in the young man’s hand. Unlike Mu Feng, he didn’t have a Qian Kun ring to store his money. After that, Mu Kuang gave the young man’s shoulder a light pat and left with Mu Feng.
The young man was shocked when he opened up the bags of money and saw that they were filled with shining gold coins. These two bags of money were equivalent to several years of a normal person’s income.
“I can’t change the circumstances I was born into, but my future is in my own hands……”
Looking at Mu Feng’s back, a trace of uncertainty flashed across Bai Ziyue’s eyes. After a while, he clenched his fists and followed them into the inn.
“Haih, I feel so sorry for him.”
Mu Kuang was talking about Bai Ziyue.
“There’re a lot of pitiful people in this world. Only by becoming stronger ourselves will we not have to suffer.”
Mu Zhong gulped down a mouthful of beer and said. There wasn’t a need for him to participate in street fights like just now.
“Yeah… If we don’t try our best, we’ll become pitiful one day as well.”
Mu Feng agreed with him.
“Erm… I-I would like to join you…”
At this time, Bai Ziyue walker over, stood in front of Mu Feng, and said this.
“Oh? You would like to join me?”
Mu Feng was puzzled.
“That’s right. I want to be as powerful as you two, can you teach me how? I will help do the chores. Here, this is your money.”
Bai Ziyue placed the two bags of money on top of the table.
“Hmm, you want to join me? Are you sure about that? Your life may be at risk if you join me. Besides, if you want to be more powerful, you must work hard. It’s easier said than done.”
Mu Feng said with a smile.
“I’m willing to endure hardship and challenges. You said so yourself, my future is in my own hands. I don’t want to steal and live like a rat anymore.”
Bai Ziyue said with his face full of determination.
“Well, if that’s the case, you will have to prove yourself worthy of joining me. Uncle Zhong.”
Mu Feng nodded and Mu Zhong understood what he meant. Mu Zhong then stood up, put his hand on top of Bai Ziyue’s head, and started to channel a gush of blue-colored Meta-power into his body.
Bai Ziyue felt as though a stream of water was flowing inside his body.
After a short while, Mu Zhong nodded and said: “He has Yuan Gu, but I don’t know which level it is. Eh, wait!
All of a sudden, Mu Zhong’s expression changed and he quickly pulled his hand away. To his surprise, it seemed that some of the Meta-power he channeled into Bai Ziyue’s body was absorbed by him!
Mu Zhong looked at Bai Ziyue in shock whereas Bai Ziyue looked back at him puzzledly.
“Eh, why are you looking at me like that?”
Bai Ziyue frowned and asked.
“Uncle Zhong, what’s wrong?”
Mu Feng also asked in puzzlement.
“Little Lord, it seems to me that this kiddo is somewhat abnormal.”
Mu Zhong squinted his eyes and said. After that, he grabbed hold of Bai Ziyue’s hand and channeled Meta-power into his body once more. As he expected, some of his Meta-power was absorbed by Bai Ziyue’s body. Although the amount was small, it was significant.
“You’re such a weird man.”
Bai Ziyue said while pulling his hand away. He then looked at Mu Feng.
Mu Zhong nodded at Mu Feng, and Mu Feng said with a smile: “Alright then, you’ll be joining me from now on. However, you’ll have to endure pain and hardship if you want to become one of the powerful ones. Are you ready for that?”
“Haha, let me greet you once again, big brother. I’m as ready as I’ll ever be!”
Bai Ziyue got down on one knee and bowed towards Mu Feng.
No one knew that what happened today was the turning point of Bai Ziyue’s destiny……
