King of Gods - chapter-66
Zhao Feng was able to inspect Guangjun Province City thirty kilometers
away, while the others, including Ye Linyun, still saw it as a tiny black
Within his left eye, the azure light had reached 2.1 meters in radius,
matching his cultivation.
Zhao Feng had discovered that ever since he entered the sixth rank, the
progress of his cultivation had started to slow down, unlike his martial
arts. According to Ye Linyun, the nine ranks of the Martial Path strove
to perfect one’s body. So as one reached the later ranks, the harder it
was to progress.
The carriage soon entered the rich Province City.
On the way, Zhao Feng realized that any random youth would have the
cultivation of the third or fourth rank.
The buildings here were far more majestic, it was not something Sun
Feather City could compare to. Finally, the carriage entered the depths
of the city and stopped near a rich and noble palace. Compared to it, the
Zhao family’s mansion was just like an old bathroom, it wasn’t even
close to being on the same level.
Just the front gate alone was several carriages wide. What surprised them
more was that the eight guards at the front gate had already reached the
fourth rank or higher.
“Cultivators of the fourth rank are only guards here?” Zhao Feng was

Being born in a small village and cultivating to this level, he
understood how much effort and pain it took. Martial Artists of the
fourth rank or higher would even be respected in Sun Feather City.
“This is the Guanjun Palace and it is the most influential place in the
city. I’ll soon transfer you guys to the Sky Guards Battalion where we
train our geniuses,” Ye Linyun warned.
Guanjun Palace! Sky Guards Battalion!
The breathing rates of Zhao Feng and Zhao Yufei increased. After entering
the Guanjun Palace, Zhao Feng realized that almost every cultivator was
of the fourth rank or higher. Zhao Feng even saw three Martial Masters of
the seventh rank.
Soon, Ye Linyun led the two to an old dirty field. It was weird that an
old dirty field such as this would appear in the middle of the Guanjun
Palace. On the field, there were a few tents and a small number of wooden
rooms. In the very middle was the only building.
“This is the forbidden area of the Guanjun Palace – the Sky Guards
Battalion, which was created by Lord Guanjun himself in the hope of
raising some geniuses. At the same time, this is the backup of the
Guanjun Corps.” Ye Linyun walked forward.
Sky Guards Battalion?
We’re going to live in this sh*tty place? Zhao Feng stared at the dirty
muddy field with ten wooden rooms and a few more tents. The environment
here was so cr*p that it couldn’t even compare to Green Leaf Village.
“Haha, Master Ye. These are the two geniuses you brought?” A white
bearded old man came from the other side with a black-clothed youth
following behind him.

“Master Hu,” Ye Linyun signaled to the white bearded old man.
While they were speaking, Master Hu casually looked over Zhao Feng and
Instantly, the two felt as if all their secrets had been exposed. Zhao
Feng’s heart shook, this old man’s cultivation was probably even
higher than Ye Linyun’s.
It could be seen that the Guanjun Palace did indeed have an unique
position, with two Martial Masters of the ninth rank here.
“He’s Huang Qi, a genius I picked from the Pearl Tree City, just
fifteen years old and already at the sixth rank,” the old man smiled
happily as he introduced the youth standing behind him.
Fifteen years old and already at the sixth rank. His talent was indeed
good. The youth named Huan Qi casually glanced at Zhao Feng and Zhao
Yufei, but surprise was seen in his eyes as he looked at the two.
Both the white-bearded old man and Master Ye were in charge of sending
their geniuses here. After they sent the three to the gate, the two
Masters immediately stopped.
“I’ll send you up to here. You better perform well because Lord
Guanjun will be coming out of secluded meditation next month…,” Ye
Linyun warned them before leaving.
Being a Martial Master of the ninth rank, his time was precious too.
The white-bearded old man also talked to Huang Qi. “Lord Guanjun is
known for his love of geniuses, especially young ones. You need to grasp
this chance to change your destiny.”
“Yes, Master Hu,” Huan Qi took a deep breath and solemnly answered.
Lord Guanjun was a legend in this country, and the Sky Guards Battalion
was created by him. If Huan Qi stayed here and cultivated, not only would
he receive resources from the Guanjun Palace, he would also get the
chance to see the legendary Lord Guanjun.
The two from the Zhao family walked into the dirty fields with Huang Qi.
On the way, they saw many youths of the same age. Most of them were
between the ages of twelve and eighteen, but the majority were under
sixteen. This meant that their ages were all similar.
“Twelve years old, third rank…” Zhao Feng couldn’t help but click
The two children who had just walked past were both twelve years old and
they had reached the third rank. One needed to remember that Zhao Feng
didn’t even step into the Martial Path until he was twelve.
Furthermore, youths of fourteen and fifteen years of age could be seen
everywhere, and their cultivation was all at least of the fourth rank,
with some even reaching the fifth or sixth rank. The scene turned the
expression of the slightly arrogant Huang Qi solemn.
“These three are probably new.” The youths of the Sky Guards
Battalion looked curiously at the three, but the majority of the gazes
landed on Zhao Yufei.
Zhao Yufei was beautiful and she had a pure, almost angelic aura to her.
“Look, there’s a beautiful girl genius here.”
Figures started to appear from within the Sky Guards Battalion. Looking
at these new faces, sparks lit up their eyes. Entering the Sky Guards
Battalion, Zhao Feng and the other two all knew these were the geniuses
from across the country.
“It should be here.”
The three of them made their way to the center where the building was. As
they had just entered the Sky Guards Battalion, they needed to come
“Are you three new?” a lazy voice sounded from behind.
Cold sweat appeared on Zhao Feng’s back as he turned around and saw a
silver-clad youth there.
The three jumped in fear, when did this person appear? Soon, Zhao Feng
realized that the clothes were familiar. He suddenly realized that on the
day of the summit, there was a similar figure wearing the same silver
outfit, and he had injured the elder of the Qiu family.
“My name is Third Guard and I am the supervisor of the Sky Guards
Battalion. From today, you’re a member of the Sky Guards
Battalion…now listen to the rules…” The youths words were simple and
The rules of the Sky Guards Battalion were strict.
First, every member could only leave once a month. Second, different
people received different treatments. Third, as long as no one was
seriously injured/crippled/dead, you could do whatever you wanted.
The first and third rules were easy to understand.
But what did the second one mean?
That afternoon, Zhao Feng understood the reason.
There were only ten wooden rooms and thirty tents in the Sky Guards
Battalion. Because the three had just arrived, they all received an old
worn tent which the three could just fit perfectly in.
“We’re supposed to sleep here?” Huang Qi tried to suppress his
The old worn tent could barely block the rain and wind; for anything else
it was completely useless. Being the genius of Pearl Tree City, when had
he received such treatment?
Zhao Feng furrowed his brow. For him it was alright, but Zhao Yufei was a
girl, and a pretty one too. This sh*tty tent couldn’t even block most
Zhao Yufei bit her lip, but said nothing.
“Oi, new kids, all you need to do to enter the wooden rooms is beat
their original owners,” a skinny youth walked over grinning and warned
The three immediately turned their gazes to the ten wooden rooms. The
rooms were numbered One through Ten. It was obvious that these ten were
the elite of the elite.
“Good! All I need to do to get a wooden room is just beat the original
owner.” Huang Qi couldn’t help but rub his hands together.
He had complete confidence that with his sixth rank cultivation and being
the top genius of Pearl Tree City, he could easily get a room.
The few Guanjun guards brought the food to the youth in their tents.
“Peh! Pfff! What kind of food is this? It’s like the food I feed my
pigs!” Huang Qi tasted some, but immediately spat it out.
It was just too disgusting.
Zhao Feng chewed a bit and also spat it out. The food they had received
had all gone old. But the three soon realized that the guards who went to
the wooden rooms had plates full of delicious, tasty food.
“Fuck!” Huang Qi cursed and stood up.
It was obvious that the youths living inside the wooden rooms received
“The youths inside the wooden rooms are known as the Ten Sky Guards.
Where the rest of us eat leftover cr*p, they get to eat the wonders of
the world and they have their own personal servants. Every month, we get
two thousand one hundred pieces of silver, while they get at least ten
thousand and receive a variety of pills and resources. Apparently, if you
become one of the Ten Sky Guards, there’s a chance to receive pointers
from Lord Guanjun himself…,” the skinny youth from before informed
them, talking about the different treatments they received.
Now, Zhao Feng fully understood the meaning of the second rule, different
people did indeed get different treatments.
All that mattered here was strength. Only through strength would you
“I want to challenge someone!” Huang Qi howled as he threw the
overdue food on the ground and sprinted in the direction of the wooden
