The tribes loved him because of his kindness and justice and changed many of their violent temperaments and there was only one annual habit that Feng could not stop, which is that on the feast of their god, some tribal leaders go down from the mountains to the road leading to the villages, and they kill the first human they meet, cut off his head and offer it as a sacrifice to their god.

Feng made great efforts to stop this custom, but they completely refused to abolish this custom. One day, Feng received a message from the Emperor of China saying, "If the habit of beheading doesn't stop on the day of the feast, I will have to summon you to China.”

After Feng read the message, he summoned leaders of tribes and said to them very firmly, Honorable leaders, I have tried to be nice to you but you are determined to disobey, tomorrow at night I will allow the tribes for the last time to practice this habit, tomorrow will be the last victim, when the moon appears you will find a man coming wearing a red cloak, if you want to present him as a sacrifice cut his neck but remember that I will no longer allow this habit to be repeated.

The leaders agreed angrily, and the next day, when the moon appeared, they came down from the mountains, found a man wearing a red cloak, they began to sing to their god, then one of them came forward and struck the head of this stranger, they carried his head and went to the chief of the tribes to give the head as a sacrifice to the gods.

In the light of the fire torch, the chief of the tribes looked at the head and shouted loudly, then there was a terrible silence in the place and when the leaders looked towards the head, they found it the head of their beloved friend Feng!
