928 Destiny Linked

    Feng Jiu couldn't help but laugh out loud: "There is no forever goodbye in this world. You don't have to cultivate in only one place. She patted Xiao Yihan's shoulder and said: "The ultimate goal is to cultivate in the Eight Great Empires."

    Upon hearing this, everyone's expression wavered. Some of them knew about the Eight Great Empires, and some didn't. However, at this moment in time, none of them were willing to be the weakest link.

    She chatted with them for a while before they dispersed to their own rooms to rest. Seeing that her mind was set, the Deputy Headmaster said nothing further and also left.

    Nie Teng and the rest who shared the courtyard with her watched as she ordered for water to be prepared for her bath. They also then retired to their rooms.

    As her uniform was ruined and she only had the set she was wearing, after her bath, she put on her own set of clothes, a dazzling set of red robes. When she opened the door to go look for food, she saw Mo Chen walking over carrying Cloud Devouring in his arms.


    As soon as Cloud Devouring saw its master, it leapt forwards. Mo Chen had no choice but to let go of it as it jumped out of his arms.

    Feng Jiu's eyes were filled with surprise: "Why are you looking after Cloud Devouring?" She had left Cloud Devouring in the Deputy Headmaster's care, so why was it with him?

    "I was bored and needed to pass time." He replied, looking at her: "I heard that you will be staying behind to be a teacher."

    "Yes, one year." She nodded in response. She stepped out of the courtyard with him. The two of them walked unhurriedly with Cloud Devouring following behind them.

    Mo Chen's pace was slow and leisurely. As he walked, he neither spoke to her nor looked at her. He just looked straight ahead, as if he were thinking about something.

    Feng Jiu glanced at him and saw that his whole body was surrounded in a faint air, his white robes fluttered gently in the breeze. His black hair barely moved and his expression was indifferent, but he gave one the feeling that he was about to step into the clouds like a celestial being. It made her feel really strange.

    He had shown up in the academy because of her. He had followed them to the Two Star Academy, also because of her. However, she didn't know why he had done it.

    Was it possible that it was because of the prophecies his Master, Sky Master foretold? No, that's not possible, because sometimes he looked in a complicated and distant way.

    "You're curious why I keep following you?"

    Perhaps he knew about the uncertainty in her heart. As they walked up to a tree, Mo Chen stopped and smiled.

    Feng Jiu looked at him, but didn't speak.

    "Initially, I wasn't curious about the ruler of the world, nor did I have much feelings about it. Therefore, when I followed my Master's command to seek you out, it was just a mission to me. However, I have stayed by your side because I want to know what kind of a person my destiny is linked to."

    Feng Jiu was startled: "Destinies linked? What do you mean?"

    He turned around to face her, his expression was deep and complicated: "Life because of you, death because of you."

    Those eight words left her shocked and speechless.

    Life because of her? Death because of her? This was the reason he followed her all this time?

    She was unable to express how she felt inside, she looked at the elegant man in front of her and asked: "When I asked you back then, you refused to say. Why are you telling me this now?"

    "I am leaving."

    His voice was slow and faint: " With your strength and talent, I believe that you will be able to enter the Eight Great Empires within a few years. I am really looking forward to seeing you there."
