1371 A Battle Neither Could Afford to Lose!
Five figures were already sitting in the council hall.
Lin Feng did not recognize any of these five figures. They were all sitting at a huge round table, and there was no distinction in their ranks. When the First Light was founded, this was the system established by the three co-founders, Supremacy First Light, Supremacy Round Heart, and Supremacy Prime Glory.
That was, the Supremacy elders were of the same level, at least in terms of status and authority. There was no distinction in rank. Hence, even the table of the Supreme Council was a round table.
Although Lin Feng did not know any of them, the moment he entered the hall, the five figures all looked at Lin Feng. He could clearly tell that although one person’s gaze was very calm, the pressure was incomparably immense, several times greater than that of Supremacy Round Heart.
In fact, it was infinitely close to the Indefinite Sect Master and Supremacy Seven Treasures back then.
The owner of this gaze must be Supremacy First Light, the peak Supremacy who was infinitely close to a Two-star Supremacy. Of course, Lin Feng had met the Indefinable Sect Master and Supremacy Seven Treasures before. The Indefinable Sect Master had even attacked Lin Feng with his full power, but Lin Feng still managed to use the spacetime imprint to escape. Hence, Lin Feng did not care about just a glance from Supremacy First Light at all.
As for the gaze from another person, it was much less threatening than Supremacy First Light, but stronger than the other three Supremacies. It should be the person Lin Feng needed to deal with this time, Supremacy Prime Glory!
Hence, Lin Feng specially observed Supremacy Prime Glory. Their gazes met in mid-air, and became confrontational as soon as they entered.
As soon as both parties entered, no one spoke. The atmosphere was very oppressive, and even vaguely hostile.
In the end, Lin Feng and the other five also sat at the round table and confronted Supremacy First Light and the others.
“Supremacy Magnum, what is the meaning of this? Don’t you know the rules of the Supreme Council of First Light? Irrelevant personnel are not allowed to enter the council hall.”
Supremacy Prime Glory was the first to speak, and he began to make accusations as soon as he spoke.
Supremacy Magnum sneered and said, “Who said that he’s irrelevant personnel? The four of us, as Supremacy elders, jointly recommend this Alliance Leader of the Domain Alliance, the Dark Domain Supremacy Lin Feng, to join the First Light and become the tenth Supremacy elder!”
Supremacy Prime Glory and the others wore looks of shock on their faces, as if they did not know beforehand. However, in reality, they had long guessed that Supremacy Round Heart and the others would recommend Lin Feng to join the First Light.
“Supremacy Magnum, what are you doing? You’re simply inviting trouble!”
Supremacy Prime Glory’s face was filled with anger.
“Inviting trouble? Supremacy Prime Glory, who’s the one inviting trouble? The Dark Domain Supremacy is the Alliance Leader of the Domain Alliance. He is willing to join the First Light and become the tenth Supremacy elder. That’s expansion for the First Light, and there is only benefit and no harm to the First Light. As for you? You actually want to incorporate the First Light into the Opulent Lodge. After that, the First Light will become history and dissipate completely. It’s obvious at a glance who’s the one inviting trouble!” Supremacy Magnum did not back down at all and immediately retorted.
Supremacy Prime Glory’s expression was dark. He gritted his teeth and said word by word, “Supremacy Magnum, back then, the three Supremacy elders jointly established the First Light to find hope. But now, there’s no longer any hope for us. Without Two-star Boundary Stones, we’ll never be able to give rise to a Two-star Supremacy. The Opulent Lodge can give us the Two-star Boundary Stones. This is hope! The First Light is only joining the Opulent Lodge, and would not completely dissipate. When enough Two-star Supremacies are born, so what if it’s the Opulent Lodge? We can even turn the tables and annex the Opulent Lodge!”
“Heh, Supremacy Prime Glory, who would believe what you said? Annex the Opulent Lodge instead? Do you really think that the Opulent Lodge is so kind that they won’t take any precautions? In the end, you’re just after that Two-star Boundary Stone for your own selfish reasons. Supremacy Prime Glory, although you’re one of the three co-founders of First Light, if we’re really incorporated into the Opulent Lodge, out of the nine Supremacy elders, you may not be able to obtain that Two-star Boundary Stone for certain. It would be a true tragedy if you end up doing someone else’s work for them instead.”
Supremacy Prime Glory’s expression changed abruptly. In reality, he also knew his own situation very well. Out of the three co-founders, he had actually completely fallen behind.
If the First Light was really incorporated into the Opulent Lodge, Supremacy First Light and Supremacy Round Heart would definitely be able to obtain one of the three Two-star Boundary Stones. Then, there would only be one Two-star Boundary Stone left.
Among the remaining seven Supremacy elders, a few were actually on par with Supremacy Prime Glory. For example, Supremacy Magnum was not much inferior to Supremacy Prime Glory.
At that time, it was hard to say who would get the third Two-star Boundary Stone. Up until now, the Opulent Lodge had never made any private promises to Supremacy Prime Glory. Hence, he was really worried.
It was precisely because of this that he was so proactive. He hoped to let the Opulent Lodge see that he had made great contributions to the incorporation of the First Light into the Opulent Lodge, and hoped that it would allow him to receive a Two-star Boundary Stone.
However, winding up doing someone else’s work was also a possibility. Hence, Supremacy Prime Glory’s expression changed drastically. After having his worries pointed out by Supremacy Magnum, the atmosphere became even more tense.
At this moment, Supremacy First Light finally spoke slowly.
“All of you, sit down. What’s the point of arguing further? Since it’s the Supreme Council, we’ll do things according to the rules. Every Supremacy elder has the right to recommend other Controllers to join the First Light. However, if you want to become a Supremacy Elder, you have to go through the verification of one of the nine Supremacy elders. What do you think?”
Supremacy First Light’s words immediately caused the noisy hall to fall silent.
Supremacy Prime Glory’s expression was dark as he sneered, “Of course. Rules are rules. No one can break them.”
“We also agree. According to the rules, it has to be verified by one of the Supremacy elders. I recommend Elder Magnum!”
Elder Round Heart also spoke. However, Supremacy First Light and the others definitely would not agree to his recommendation of Elder Magnum.
As expected, Supremacy First Light shook his head and said, “You’re the joint referees. If you are the ones verifying it, there’s no doubt that you can’t guarantee fairness. Naturally, an elder on the side that objects has to be the one verifying. I recommend Elder Prime Glory. How about that?”
As expected, Supremacy First Light’s side still recommended Supremacy Prime Glory in the end.
Supremacy Round Heart took a long look at Supremacy First Light, but in the end, he still nodded and said, “All right, I agree to let Elder Prime Glory verify the Dark Domain Supremacy.”
“I agree as well.”
The various Supremacy elders also expressed their agreement to let Supremacy Prime Glory attack.
Hence, Supremacy Prime Glory slowly stood up and said with a sinister expression, “Dark Domain Supremacy, come. If you want to become a Supremacy elder of the First Light, you have to go through me! Only by defeating me can you become a Supremacy elder of the First Light. Otherwise, forget about everything!”
Their gazes met again. This time, both parties no longer concealed the hostility in their eyes. There was even a hint of killing intent on both sides.
“It’s not suitable to fight here. Let’s go to the chiliocosm domain corridor. Whether we win or lose, I hope it ends peacefully.”
Supremacy First Light and the others immediately left the hall and headed for the chiliocosm domain corridor.
The chiliocosm domain corridor was spacious enough for two One-star Supremacies to fight at will. Be it Supremacy First Light or Supremacy Round Heart, both took this battle very seriously.
They knew that the outcome of this battle might very well affect the true direction of the First Light in the future. Neither could afford to lose this battle!
