The Strongest System - chapter-1038
Within the Lin Family house…
Ning Tiekun was all smiles as he stepped aside and said politely,
“Brother Zhou, Brother Wang, please take a seat.”
The two of them, Brother Wang and Brother Zhou, didn’t feel shy as they
walked out briskly toward the main seats, “Brother Ning and fellow junior
sisters, please take a seat as well.”
Ning Tiekun sat down following both of them. The remaining three junior
sisters did not stand on ceremony as they sat down on the left and right
as well. The only one who was displeased in her heart was Lin Hanyu as
she stood by the side without budging a single inch.
Xiao Yuya pulled at Lin Hanyu and whispered softly, “Sit down. These two
aren’t people we can offend. It’d be best not to create trouble for your
Lin Hanyu then sat down with reluctance. In her heart, she was filled
with regrets. Had she known that this would happen, she would not have
chosen to return. Or in fact, she could have returned alone as well.
Everything that was happening right now had her feeling extremely
aggrieved in her heart.
While the seven of them sat here, the Family Heads of the eight great
families were just like servants right now, surrounding them while
serving them tea, wine, and food.
Just what sort of face should someone have to command such a scene?
Being summoned here, the other Family Heads of the seven great families
felt extremely indignant as well. Since when had they ever endured
humiliation as such? That Ning Tiekun was just calling them by their full
names directly and having them serve left and right as though he was
calling out to his servants.
“Pour wine for both of them.” Ning Tiekun chuckled out before inquiring
straightaway, “Now, senior brothers, what brings you guys to this small
Zhou Jun raised his wine glass and gulped it down with a single swig, “We
passed by this area and decided to head down and take a look while buying
back some items of the secular world back for our fellow senior and
“Oh, so that’s the reason. Well, leave that matter to me!” Even though
Ning Tiekun was the Young Master of the Metal Sword Sect, he was smooth
and slick in relationships. Toward the disciples of big sects, he was
always polite and reserved. However, he was always cold and haughty
toward those weaker than him.
“We’ll have to trouble you then, Brother Ning.” Both of them laughed out
before raising their wine glasses and toasting one another, drinking to
their heart’s contentment. Even though they were only Inner Sect
disciples in the Heaven and Earth Sect, to disciples of other sects, they
were people with an esteemed status.
They naturally knew that Ning Tiekun was trying to suck up to them. At
the same time, they were more than willing to give him the opportunity to
As for these commoners who were serving them wine and food, they both
felt that it was the honor of these people. After all, it would be
prideful for them to be able to tell the world that they had once served
the disciples of ‘so and so’ sect.
“Brother Zhou, Brother Wang, this plain and simple place has nothing much
to offer. I’m afraid that you guys will have to make do with it.” Ning
Tiekun’s tone bore a heavy disdain.
When the Huang Family Head, Huang Yan, served both of them wine, his hand
trembled for a moment and spilled some of it onto the table surface. When
Ning Tiekun saw this, he flew into a rage and barked out, “What are you
doing? If you can’t even do something as simple as such, what use do you
Even though Huang Yan was the Huang Family Head, how would he dare to be
insolent in the face of these disciples of sects? His face was drained of
color as he went into a flurry while apologizing profusely.
“Hmph!” Zhou Jun snorted out coldly. As an Inner Sect disciple, he was
naturally prideful. But of course, he would not go to the extent of
striking out at a mere mortal with that slight bit of cultivation state.
“Uncle Huang, let me do it.” Lin Hanyu’s tone was displeased as she
walked beside Huang Yan. Taking over the wine jar, she served Zhou Jun
Zhou Jun smiled out. A beautiful woman with good wine… This was pretty
While the faces of the other Family Heads were normal, they were totally
incensed in their hearts. Detestable! These people were too darned
At the entrance of the Rising Dragon City…
A streak of light landed.
The first thing that struck the minds of the commoners was fright. But
when they saw that it was a human figure, they heaved out a sigh of
relief. As long as it wasn’t anything non-human, it was fine!
Returning to the Rising Dragon City three years later, Lin Fan did not
sense much of a change. The city entrance was still the city entrance.
Heck, even the tiles had barely changed their position.
Stepping a foot into the city, Lin Fan could tell that it was lively as
When he thought of that Lin Haoming, Lin Fan could barely hold in his
laughter. If that guy knew just how strong he was and what his position
in the sect was right now, Lin Fan truly did not know how high that guy
After entering the Golden Immortal state, Lin Fan’s aura had taken on an
extremely huge change. Everyone who passed by could not pull their sights
away from him. It was as though they were completely mesmerized by him.
Some of the passersby started exchanging glances with one another before
“Such a handsome young lad!”
“That’s right! I’ve never seen him before in the past! I wonder which
family he is from.”
“Eh? Why do I get such a familiar feeling about him?”
“Chey! You say that about everyone! The previous time, there was someone
else who had arrived that you claimed to find familiar. Have you recalled
who he was till now?”
“No, no! This time around, it’s really different! I really do find him
When Lin Fan had reincarnated from the Ancient Saint World, this was the
place where he was born. Even though there was no blood relationship
between them, after staying here for eleven years, it was impossible for
him to not have feelings.
Some of the young girls passing by could not bring their gaze away from
him as they tried sending him signals secretly. It was as though they
were bewitched by Lin Fan.
Lin Fan smiled out, causing his charisma toward these girls to skyrocket
When Lin Fan passed by a herbal medicine shop, he could not help but stop
in his tracks.
Lin Fan remembered this herbal medicine shop: it was a business of the
Lin Family. At this moment, there was an elderly man whom Lin Fan was
extremely familiar with in the shop, the Lin Family’s old housekeeper.
After not seeing him for three years, the old housekeeper had aged
considerably. However, with the help of pills, he was naturally not at a
point where he could not walk or move any longer.
“Old housekeeper.” Lin Fan spoke.
When the old housekeeper who was summing up the accounts in the shop
right now heard that voice, he was stunned for a moment. He then looked
up outside. When his sight was cast over, his face changed into one that
bore a slight disbelief.
“Young…Young Master!” The old housekeeper was taken aback. When he had
verified that it was truly the Young Master, he rushed out from behind
the shopfront and gripped Lin Fan’s hands tightly, “Young Master! Are you
“Yes.” Lin Fan nodded his head.
Some of the commoners nearby started exclaiming out.
“That’s the Young Master of the Lin Family?”
“THE Young Master Lin who had entered a sect and from whom no one had
heard a single piece of news for the past three years?”
“Holy f*ck! The memories of that duel three years ago are still fresh as
yesterday in my mind! To think that he would truly be back! Not only
that, check it out, guys! After three years, the aura of around the Young
Master Lin has changed. He is way more fearsome than he was in the past
“The Big Missy of the Lin Family has also returned from her sect! Now
that their Young Master is back as well, this is truly a matter of double
“Haven’t you guys heard? Those companions of the Big Missy Lin who had
come along with her seem to be pretty disrespectful to the Lin Family and
the other seven great families.”
“Ah, I did hear of something like that!”
Lin Fan’s lips curled into a smile, “After not returning for three years,
I do miss this place quite a bit. Let’s head back first.”
“Alright, alright! This old servant will rush back to report this
immediately!” The old housekeeper was extremely emotional right now.
Young Master Lin was a gifted genius who was accepted in by the Heaven
and Earth Sect! A glorious thing as such was the number one achievement
of the entire Rising Dragon City!
“You don’t have to. Just come along with me. That’ll do.” Lin Fan said.
As they headed toward the direction of the Lin Family, the surrounding
commoners started spreading the word by mouth.
‘The Young Master of the Lin Family has returned.’
For anyone out there, this was an unusually interesting thing to hear
about. None of them knew just how the Young Master of the Lin Family had
been doing out there for the past three years.
But now that he was back, the rumors of him having fallen was naturally
At the entrance of the Lin Family…
There were two guards standing watch.
“Hurry up and open up! Young Master has returned!” The old housekeeper
cried out emotionally.
When the guards heard it, they were stunned for a moment. Without
thinking twice, they then shouted out in surprise. To think that the
Young Master would have returned!
Lin Fan chuckled as he stepped foot into the Lin Family. This time
around, he was back to take a look.
Just a look and he would be off after he was done.
