Phoenix Against the World – Chapter 9

Phoenix Against the World / Feng Ni Tian Xia

Chapter 9

“This job is posted by Xiao family. We are short on close-combat mercenaries. Those who are interested may come and try! The pay is very high!”

The advanced job was posted up by a man, the content was to find a Blue Spirit fruit within the famous Misty Forest.

The Blue Spirit Fruit was considered to be a type of herb that can strengthen one’s body. If one uses it to train it can double the speed of their cultivation. The fruit is considered to be an extremely precious treasure because it would only blossom once every three years.

When Feng Beiyue was 10 years old, she could already be considered a master at martial arts.

Several people had already signed up, Feng Beiyue also squeezed past the crowd wanting to sign up as well. Due to her short stature, when she had passed by, a few mercenaries immediately let out few burly laughs.

“Kid, don’t cause trouble for others, the brothers here are very busy!” A mercenary burst into a hearty laugh.

Feng Beiyue instantly took out the dagger that was sheathed at the mercenary’s waist. Her speed was so fast that before their eyes could even react she had already pointed the dagger towards the mercenary’s heart.

If it weren’t for the dagger being too short, the sword would have already pierced his neck!

Sigh, a 12 years old’s body is really inconvenient…

The mercenary immediately paled, and the people around him looked at the scene in shock. This small person was incredibly fast, her movements swift (they don’t know her gender but I’m using her for now), her strength was definitely one of a senior warrior!

IN this world, the strong must be respected. With Feng Beiyue’s little performance, everyone’s attitude instantly changed, from being dismissive to one full of respect.

She sheathed the dagger back to the mercenary’s waist and deliberately used a hoarse voice, “Excuse me.”

“No, I’m the one who was in the wrong. Will this warrior please forgive my rude behavior from earlier.” The mercenary was very embarrassed but not mad, he bowed deeply to Feng Beiyue as an apology.

Such a forthright temperament, Feng Beiyue thought to herself, she now had a better impression of the warriors in this era.

“So strong! Sir Warrior, would you like to join us on this mission?”

The man who had just posted the advanced job sincerely invited her. From this, one can see that the strong was well-respected.

Feng Beiyue nodded, of course! She was willing to join as long as the pay was high.

“May I ask for your name, Sir Warrior?”

“Youtian”

She had used that very same name when she registered at the Union.

In this mercenary team, the eldest son of the Xiao family was the team leader.

Previously, Feng Beiyue had simply thought that the leader of the team possessed the same Surname as her own family, but who would’ve thought the world was such a small place! This Xiao gentleman was actually Shing, the Princess’ elder brother!

p14

Shing’s strength was quite good, at 18 years old, he was already promoted to an Imperial Silver Warrior. He had his own group of military soldiers, looked dashingly handsome and had an unrestrained personality. He was literally every maiden’s dream lover.

When the Princess was young, he would often tease her. But later, when they grew up, he also started to cause troubles for the Princess so whenever the Princess saw him she would cry.

Now that this scoundrel was within her grasp, Feng Beiyue would let him taste a bit of pain!

“Fanfan, this is the senior warrior you had found?”

Shing rode on a tall black horse, his body covered with shiny silver armor, he looked down at the dwarf Feng Beiyue (they can’t see her face so they don’t recognize her)

The man named Fanfan was the Union’s main mercenary recruiter. Hearing Shing’s voice filled with disdain and suspicion he hurriedly whispered a few words to his ears.

Phoenix Against The World / Feng Ni Tian Xia

Chapter 8

Feng Beiyue covered herself completely with a black cloak she had found in her closet. Her face was covered by the hood rim. After confirming that no one would recognize her, she walked out of the room.

Cloud Pavilion was the most remote courtyard in Princess Long’s mansion. Normally, if it weren’t to bully the Princess, nobody would come.

The 2-3 meter high door-gate was easy for her to jump over, although she cannot channel her internal essence yet, she had not forgotten what she had learned from her previous life.

Even in this era, she can still be considered a top Martial Arts master!

The capital of the South Wing country was a huge city with a long history. The capital had a large population and was quite developed. If one walked in the streets, one would find the streets to be very spacious, it can easily accommodate more than 10 horse carriages. Magnificent buildings could be found everywhere, bustling lively with activity.

Vendors from various countries could be seen setting up stalls and many people were wearing strange costumes, thus, Feng Beiyue’s black cloak had not caused any special attention.

On the East side of capital was South Wing country’s largest trading market, Bougire Market. Here, one can find a variety of precious herbs, gems, treasures being traded off, as well as mercenaries. Each day, hundreds of mercenaries would come here to pick up a new task or to resell the materials that they obtained.

The Princess had never been to Bougire Market before, but from her memory, Feng Beiyue was able to pinpoint their location and arrive at their front door. Inside, many loud voices rang out and many strong-bodied mercenaries were walking around.

Several big, dark-skinned mercenaries passed by Feng Beiyue. She was only at the height of those mercenaries waist!

“Hahaha! Baby doll, don’t come here to play!” A mercenary said in a coarse voice.

Mercenaries usually have a forthright, careless personality. Feng Beiyue had encountered many of those people before in her previous life, therefore, she was not frightened.

Feng Beiyue nimbly walked past the large crowd and arrived to the center. There, she saw countless of small stalls, but Feng Beiyue only focused on the ones that sold medicinal herbs. She needed to find something to treat Dongling’s wounds and some for herself to treat her weak, poisoned body.

p12

Before she is strong enough, she don’t want to blatantly get medicine from Princess Long’s mansion.

If she isn’t certain of victory, she would never easily show her hand.

But after she inquired the price of some herbs, Feng Beiyue was left staggering.

After so many years of being bullied by her family, the Princess was left with no money, even the inheritances that her mother had left behind for her was robbed away by them.

But she also understood that ‘money’ was very important, it doesn’t matter which era you are from, Money is certainly the most important.

But now that she’s in a hurry, she needs to find a way to get money!

Think, think, Feng Beiyue thought as she walked towards the other side of the market where many mercenaries were gathering.

Even spending 10 copper coins to officially register as a mercenary had already made Feng Beiyue feel broke. She only had 20 coppers in total, and some scattered coins in her pocket.

Make money! I have to make money!!!

Next, she went to the Union’s Job Market. A huge white board was lying there covered with a variety of mercenary jobs. Each job was categorized by different levels, and their reward was also different.

Feng Beiyue directly ignored the low-leveled ones and went straight to the advanced job section.

At the advanced job section there were many people, only those who were strong dared to stand here. To suddenly see Feng Beiyue, a person with a small thin body, everyone had shown a surprised look.

Chapter 6

Feng Beiyue…His trip to Princess Long’s mansion had ended up giving him unexpected harvest.

When she was supposed to be cruel she would not show any mercy, when she’s supposed to be coolheaded she would not turn her head around, to him, that girl was very interesting.

“Your Highness…” A whisper came from the darkness

With a wave, his white clothes gently flying, he instantly disappeared into the night.

———-Northern Moon Dynasty———-

Cloud Pavilion

This is the most remote courtyard of Princess Long’s mansion. The grass is overgrown and the shadows under the tree seems to be whirling. At night, the shadows made by the trees can really frighten someone to death.

Shortly after her mother had passed away, the Princess’ physician had claimed that she was suffering from an infectious disease and that it might infect others. So the family instantly moved her away to a deserted courtyard.

She used to live in the Green Water Courtyard, but now it belongs to her Stepmother Snow and her stepsister Xiaoyun.

f1

Miss Xiaoyun, at the age of 15, had became a Third-star summoner. She was a rare genius within the South Wing Country. Other than the current Crown prince, Miss Xiaoyun was currently the hottest topic.

Therefore, Xiaoyun was loved by everyone in the family. Even Concubine Qin who had given birth to the eldest son in the family would not dare to provoke her.

Xiaoyun and her stepmother Snow, in her memories, was not particularly harsh to her, unlike the Concubine Qin who would always beat her. But it was also because the arrogant Xiaoyun had always looked down on her, so she did not bother with her.

Feng Beiyue recalled the Princess’ memories, when she was seriously ill, Stepmother Snow would always bring her medicine to eat.

Wait, that doesn’t seem right!

Feng Beiyue quickly went to the kitchen, in the cold dark room she lit a small candle and smelled the medicine that her Stepmother Snow usually prepares for her.

Beiyue’s eyebrow quickly wrinkled, surely, it had smelled strange.

There were traces of poison in the pot. One dose will not be fatal, however within time, the body will become more and more weak and finally, the whole body will become limp. The person won’t die, but be rendered crippled, unable to move for the rest of their life.

Good poison, hmph, no wonder the princess’ body had always been so poor. Even when Princess Long was alive and had invited many doctors treat her, she did not get better.

This trace of poison was difficult to find, only Feng Beiyue, who had tested many poisons before would notice this smell.

Stepmother Snow, Princess Long had always treated you well, yet when she passed away you are not only ungrateful but had also wanted to poison her only daughter to death!

Feng Beiyue sat down, straighten out and started to circulate her essence. These people, she will surely but slowly, remove all of them!

Just killing them is too merciful!

The sun was slowly rising, Feng Beiyue wasn’t even a bit tired, but whenever she tried to circulate her essence, once the essence hits the core, it will suddenly disappear.

“Sh*t! This body is really trash!”

Being sick was fine, but now she can’t even circulate her essence!

In this era, where martial arts determines one’s status, only the powerful will be able to stand tall! No wonder though she was Princess Long’s sole daughter, she had still became the laughingstock of the entire country.

No one will sympathetize with the weak! Only the strong will be respected!

Chapter 4

Feng Beiyue gently sighed and spoke, “Rest assured, since I am taking over your daughter’s body, I will not let her die in vain.”

After her words, the faint light on the ancestry table gradually dispersed.

Feng Beiyue grabbed her skirt and slowly walked out of the ancestral temple.

“Hateful~ Don’t do it here~ There’s still people in the ancestral hall~” A feminine voice resounded from the dark corner in the courtyard.

“Afraid of what? About that sick ghost in there? Didn’t you say she was just a stupid girl and cannot even compare to a minion?”

A sick ghost? A fool? Before Feng Beiyue had taken over this body that might have been true…

“But I am shy~ ~ ~”

“Shy of what? Baby, hurry up I can’t wait any longer.”

The sound of people undressing could be heard.

She had just arrived to this world and now, she had encountered two adulterers, what bad luck!

Feng Beiyue slowly walked over, the moonlight lightly shining on her face. She had a pale complexion and an emaciated small face. Because she had eaten too many medicine, her eyes looked like a deep black socket. After kneeling for an entire night, her hair was messy and her white dress was floating around.

Around the corner, a strong man lifted a girl up who looked about the age of 17-18 to the wall. He was excited to get into action and was completely unaware of the fatal danger that was slowly approaching!

The girl became more opened, humming softly, her two white legs tightly wrapped around the man’s waist. The area around the temple was quiet, as a result, the sound they were making was even more ear-piercing.

Princess Long’s ancestral frame was still inside the temple and these two people actually dared to do something so shameless! They don’t respect the dead at all!

Was it because the daughter of Princess Long is so useless and mild that even the servants were so lawless?

Feng Beiyue’s small face was ice-cold, as she took another step forward. At the same time the other girl looked up, she saw a girl wearing a buoyant white dress and was scared witless.

“Ghos….Ghost!”

“Where’s the ghost? There’s dead ghost inside the temple that I know. Cmon, baby…Ugh…”

The throat only had time to make a vague sound, clack, the man’s neck was broken!

p11

“Ah!” the girl cried out and stared in shock.

“If you want to die then keep screaming.” Feng Beiyue threw the man’s body to the ground and pulled up the girl’s blouse to wipe her hand.

This disgusting, lowly man, even just killing him had made her feel sick, if it wasn’t because he was so disrespectful to Princess Long, she would not have killed him.

It had dirtied her hands!

The girl tightly closed her mouth, shaking uncontrollably.

The moonlight shone on Beiyue’s face, wasn’t she supposed to be kneeling in the ancestral temple? Why did Third Miss appear right now? Is she coming here for their lives?

“I’m not a ghost.” Feng Beiyue wiped her hands clean and raised her lips into a cold smile. “As you’ve just seen, if you dare to reveal a single word of what happened tonight, you will face the same consequences as this man. Do not think of going to the Concubine Qin to complain. I am not like the former Third Miss.”

No one would dare to joke with their own life, especially after seeing her mercilessly wring a person’s neck!

Peixiang only had one thought, the Third Miss was possessed by a ghost!

She is just like someone who had reincarnated, cold and cruel, it made her entire body tremble.

Chapter 3 – The Strong Must be Respected

I actually am growing to like this story so i’ll upload few chapters at once tmrw to satisfy the craves.

 

“Lance, you want to catch me? It is still 100 years too early for you!”

She is the world’s most outstanding assassin, she can summon the rain and call on the clouds, nothing is impossible for her, except for that person with the name starting with “N”, otherwise no one is worthy enough to be her enemy.

As she raised her hand, a huge black eagle flew downward under the moonlight. Just one glance from its sharp eyes can leave people in fear for their lives.

The eagle’s claw seized Feng Beiyue’s arm and with a wave of its huge black wings it immediately soared back up into the sky. Her flaming red hair seemed to dance in arrogance under the moonlight.

At the same time, countless of heavy machine guns on the deck were shooting at her. Lance walked to the deck and stared at the distant sky, her petite figure was moving farther and farther away. He then said to the people around him, “Are you guys ready?”

“Sir, we are ready!” The higher-ups had ordered them to kill Feng Beiyue even at the expense of a city.

Lance raised his head, disappointed, he looked at the distant sky. “I had already said before, one day, you will pay for your arrogance and cold-bloodedness, Feng Beiyue….”

He felt a sharp pain in his heart, Beiyue…. all these years I had chased after you to kill you, but in fact, each time I just couldn’t bring myself to do it…

But this time, really, farewell…

10 minutes later, a huge explosion occurred in the city border of Jiangsu Province. A huge mushroom-like cloud appeared in the sky, illuminating the night. Fortunately, the residents of the city had been moved away in advance, so no one was harmed.

Suddenly, from where the mushroom-like cloud was, a shape of a huge black dragon enveloped the sky!

South Wing Country

Late at night, nobody had seen a evil black aura descending into the temple of Princess Long’s mansion.

p8

In a room filled with dim candlelights, a pair of dark but cold eyes slowly opened. Looking at the shaky candlelight fire, the cold eyes had made no movements, only after a long time did Feng Beiyue come to digest the new memories that was bombarding her mind.

With a feeble groan, she came to accept the new facts…she had time-traveled!

It seems like Feng Beiyue’s current identity is a Princess. Her mother is the current Emperor’s elder sister, Princess Long Huiwen. However, she is currently the joke of the entire country.

She was deemed cowardly, ignorant, did not know martial arts, and was born with a weak body.

The physicians had said that she could not live until 18 years old.

Not only was she is a true fool, as a Princess she was bullied by her brothers and sisters who were born of a lower standing, from concubines. They treated her worse than a slave.

Her stepmother had a domineering arrogance, and after her mother had passed away four years ago, her father did not care about her at all. After her mother’s death, the Princess’ position within the family plummeted.

Today, she had accidentally offended her father’s favourite Concubine Qin, she was punished by having to kneel in front the temple for an entire day, with no food or water.

To begin with, her body was weak and plagued with many diseases. Having her kneel for an entire day was practically the same as asking for her life.

But no one had known that, due to some unknown circumstances, Feng Beiyue who was known as the “ultimate weapon” in modern times, had actually time-traveled and took over the body of this 12 years old Princess.

Suddenly, a warm gaze appeared in her eyes….

Phoenix Against The World – Chapter 1

Year 2012, Shanghai, China

At night, the waves were rolling along the Huangpu River and by the side, many bright lights illuminated the entire city as if its sole purpose was to prevent the night from coming.

Standing magnificently tall under the starry night skies was the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, a building that had reached the whopping height of 1535m high into the sky.

Normally, no one could see the top of the Tower as the clouds would block their view, but today, if one looks really closely, one would be able to see a girl wearing a black windbreaker standing on top of the tower. Her hands were folded against her chest as she stared silently at a cruise ship slowly gliding along the Huangpu River.

Almost close enough…

This world-class luxury cruise ship was sponsered by the Northern Wild Corporation of Japan. Inside the ship, countless number of priceless treasures were currently being auctioned. Particularly, this girl likes to rob Japanese treasures the most.

The moment the cruise ship drew close enough, the girl immediately jumped off the tower. Like a beautiful butterfly, a huge pair of black wings had spread out behind her.

Faintly behind the grey clouds, it revealed half of her crescent moon face and a figure of a young beautiful girl with fiery flaming red hair. Her brightly round eyes resembled a perfect painting, however, she emitted a strange chilling aura.

Her figure paused in the midair for a moment, when suddenly, her figure darted towards the cruise ship at lightening speed. In a blink of an eye, the petite figure had silently landed on the cruise ship, the guards didn’t even have time to discover the wings on her back had actually been from a ferocious eagle, carrying her in the dark night.

p2

As she watched several guards pass by, like a cat, she silently sneaked into the auction hall. The hall was decorated elegantly and was very luxurious. Even the vases on the sides were decorated with blue and white porcelain made from the Song Dynasty (thats like….many many many years ago….is considered very expensive)

The last auctioned treasure was bought at an extremely high price, a staggering astronomical amount that could even buy a crown. To her, Feng Beiyue, that amount was just crazy!

“Distinguished guests, today’s final treasure, is the ancient mysterious oriental jade called Boundless Million Beasts!”

The chief brought out a box that was made out of jade. The box by itself could easily cost a few billion, just what kind of treasure needs to be put in such a valuable jade box?

“Carved on this Black Jade is thousands of different mammal form, producing a life-like, wonderful workmanship. Legend has it that this black jade possesses mystical powers, one that can transcend life and death and also reverse time and space.”

p3

Ahh…

Below you can hear someone laughing, everyone had originally thought that it was a marvellous piece of black jade, but it was actually only that?

In the age of science and technology who would believe in things like strange powers and spiritual nonsense?

Instead of looking at the black jade, they were better off looking at the auctioneer, she had a beautiful face and a great figure to top it off. Her clothes wrapped around her huge bosoms charmingly, especially when the beauty slightly bends over with the jade, her charm had made every men in the auction drool with lust.

This jade, although so precious, yet no one was discerning enough to see it as a great treasure!

Feng Beiyue sneered, from the second she arrived inside the auction hall she could already feel a strong mysterious force coming from the black jade…
