The Strongest System - chapter-679
Lin Fan checked out the five people before him right now. On the other
hand, the five of them weren’t bothered about him in the slightest bit.
Even that Mu Manfeng, whom Lin Fan had shown some regards for, only had
his sight lingering on Lin Fan for a mere second before he couldn’t care
“Within this secret ground…” Emperor Nan Gong wanted to explain the
situation within the secret grounds right now. However, he was cut short
by Yu Liutian by the side.
Yu Liutian’s expression changed as he indicated to the masses that there
were two other people at the scene right now. In fact, there was already
a killing intent rising in his heart as he indicated for the others not
to make their moves.
Mu Manfeng looked at the masses as his eyes shone with a tinge of
disdain. He stepped forth and waved with his hand, “Master here, your
Buddhist nature seems strong. Could you be someone of the Buddha race?”
For someone like Mu Manfeng, even though Yu Liutian and the other three
were pretty strong, he wasn’t bothered by them in the least bit. However,
the only unknowns lied with these two people right here. In fact, Mu
Manfeng was piqued by Reverend Shakya, whose entire body was hidden under
that long robe he was draping himself with.
“Benefactor, you can sense one’s Buddhist nature too?” Reverend Shakya,
who had his entire head hidden beneath the long robes, was startled
somewhat as he started to get interested in this person.
One’s Buddhist nature was imperceptible and fleeting. If it weren’t
someone from the Buddha race, it would be rare for others to tell of it.
“Incidentally, I managed to learn some skills of the Buddha race.” Mu
Manfeng chuckled out. Naturally, he would not admit that he had obtained
the treasure of a powerful being of the Buddha race under a fortuitous
When Reverend Shakya raised his head and looked at Mu Manfeng, he nodded
in astonishment, “To think that the skill of the Buddha race mastered by
this benefactor would be this profound! That should be a skill under the
lineage of the Great Sovereignty Buddha!”
As someone of the Buddha race, Reverend Shakya was well versed in the
Buddhist texts. As for all of the different schools of the Buddha race,
he knew them by heart.
However, there was something that Reverend Shakya could not help but be
puzzled over. The bloodline of the Great Sovereignty Buddha had fallen a
long time ago! To think that someone would be able to cultivate a skill
in that lineage!
Mu Manfeng had not expected this monk before him to be so sharp in his
perceptions. He had only given off a slight strain of the Buddhist nature
within him, and yet this monk could pick up on it and predict his lineage
of cultivated Buddhist skill! This was something he hadn’t expected at
“I’ve yet to ask for the name of this Master.” Mu Manfeng felt that this
monk was far from normal.
“This poor monk is…” Even though these guys were geniuses of their
respective sects, Reverend Shakya knew that his name out there wasn’t
insignificant either. If he were to announce his name right now, it could
possibly stir another round of commotion.
However, just as Reverend Shakya was about to announce his name, Lin Fan
stood up and walked in deeper.
“Oh no! Benefactor, where are you headed to? Wait up for this poor monk
here!” Looking at Lin Fan’s departure, there was no way Reverend Shakya
would dare to linger for any moment longer. He had only managed to find
this guy after many difficulties. If he were to let him escape, how else
could he find him once more?
“Inside the secret grounds.”
“Just what sort of a background did those two come from?” Looking at how
much attention Mu Manfeng was paying to that monk, the face of Emperor
Nan Gong could not help but stern up as well.
“Hmph! It doesn’t matter what’s their background. If they hinder our way,
we’ll just send them up to the Heavens.” Yu Liutian’s tone was cold, and
his gaze was even colder.
“It’s better to be careful. That monk is far from simple.” Mu Manfeng
His instincts would never be wrong. These were instincts that he had
grown up with by killing all his way up to where he was right now.
“Hmph! Cowardly mice! To think that those two fellas would dare to enter
the secret grounds first. That’s just as well. We’ll just have them scout
the way first then. The secret grounds are extremely treacherous. Who
knows if we’re the only ones entering later on.” Yu Liutian looked at Mu
Manfeng with extreme contempt.
“Brother Yu, Brother Mu here is my friend and our teammate as well. I
hope that you can mind your words.” Emperor Nan Gong frowned.
Did this Yu Liutian wake up on the wrong side of bed or something today?
He was being way too unfriendly to someone he had brought over.
“Hmph!” Yu Liutian snorted coldly.
Xing Wangong and Jia Yongye were gloating secretly. They could not figure
out the background of this Mu Manfeng. However, since Yu Liutian was
taking the initiative to provoke him, they were hoping to make use of
this and check out just what sort of capabilities this Mu Manfeng had.
“Yu Liutian, I’m tolerating you on account of Brother Nan Gong. Yet,
you’ve provoked me time and again. Since that’s the case, I’m going to go
at it with you today. Let’s see just what sort of capabilities you’ve
got.” Mu Manfeng was looking grim right now as a killing intent rose in
his heart towards this Yu Liutian.
“Brother Mu!” Emperor Nan Gong had not expected things to turn out as
such. This was going to be awkward to pick up after.
“Emperor Nan Gong, I think you had better not stick your head into this
affair. Since this is the case, let him have a go with Brother Yu then.
We’ll take the opportunity to check out if he’s got what it takes to team
up with us.” Xing Wangong spoke up.
“That’s right.” Jia Yongye nodded in agreement.
“Benefactor, why are you leaving all of a sudden?” Reverend Shakya asked
“Why? Should I have stayed there to watch you act with all your
flaunting?” Lin Fan tossed him a sideglance. He could tell from a single
look the type of sh*t this Reverend Shakya was trying to pull off.
“Benefactor! How could you say that of this poor monk?” Reverend Shakya
replied in a hurt tone. To think that he would actually meet with a
benefactor who knew him this well! This was something Reverend Shakya
Just as the sayings went where talents would recognize it in others and
great minds thought alike, Reverend Shakya understood that this
Motherf*cking Human King before him was someone well versed in the Dao of
flaunting and acting. This was a deep bond of understanding that both of
“Benefactor, there’s something wrong with the aura of this secret ground.
Furthermore, there are so many geniuses who had arrived at this place as
well. I presume that the place must be fraught with dangers. How about
retreating, shall we?” Reverend Shakya commented in a worried tone.
“If you’re afraid, you’re welcome to leave first.” Lin Fan replied
He had to get his hands on the connate Element of Wood no matter what the
cost might be. However, he wondered if there could be something in
addition to the connate Element of Wood in this place.
For it to be able to attract so many powerful geniuses… Evidently, the
connate Element of Wood wouldn’t have that allure. If that were the case,
then there must be some other precious treasure within this place.
“Benefactor, this poor monk here isn’t afraid. As the saying goes, if I
don’t enter hell, who would…?”
“Alright, alright! Cut the crap! If you want to follow me, you had better
not let greed overwhelm you later on. Otherwise, don’t blame me for
messing you up!” Lin Fan continued walking forth. However, he realized
that the bald monk had stopped in his tracks. Elated for a moment, he
wondered if the bald monk was getting afraid and had decided to leave now?
“Benefactor, you may humiliate me, but you shall not insult my integrity.
How can a poor monk such as myself let mere things such as greed take
over my heart?” Reverend Shakya said with a righteous tone.
Lin Fan shook his head helplessly. Bloody hell! There was really
something wrong with this bald monk! Lin Fan will just have to see if he
can scare this guy off later on.
Just when Lin Fan passed by the forest, the Tree Demons began to discuss
“What should we do now? There are more powerful beings who have arrived.
Shall we devour them up as well?”
“The great Tree Emperor has already spoken, devour your head! You better
wisen up! Each and every one of these powerful beings here can easily
kill all of us!”
“Just what in the world is going on here? Usually, there is hardly any
living being who would even enter this secret ground. Why are there so
many powerful beings here now?”
“Who knows? But, if Lady Luck is shining on us, we may even be able to
pick up on some corpses for free!”
“Oooooh! I love picking up corpses! That is something effortless! We can
literally guard our tree stumps here and wait for the rabbits to come on
