A huge problem in the eyes of the world was calmly resolved by Lin Jiufeng.
No one expected this sort of outcome.
The Demon King Jiao that everyone regarded as invincible was now being suppressed in the Wei River. A huge dragon’s tomb stood there and anyone could go to take a look.
As Lin Jiufeng hadn’t made any move for several years, even though Princess Yulin had cut Wolf Storey Mountain into halves five years ago, the deterrent power of the Yuhua God Dynasty has been in decline since then.
There were just far too many potential threats to the dynasty.
As more and more people and factions from the previous era awakened—the threat was unavoidable.
Conflicts would breed conflicts.
When they accumulated to a certain extent, disaster would then brew.
If it completely erupted, it would destroy the entire Yuhua God Dynasty.
If that happened, then Lin Jiufeng would definitely have to spare more effort in saving the Yuhua God Dynasty than the previous efforts that he had done for the dynasty so far.
The appearance of Demon King Jiao represented the first conflict.
It was akin to that of a small flame atop a candle’s wick.
If no one stopped Demon King Jiao from completing his goal of soliciting land from the Yuhua God Dynasty, this small flame could burn the entire Yuhua God Dynasty to ashes.
Unfortunately, the Yuhua God Dynasty was simply too weak to handle Demon King Jiao.
In the end, it was Lin Jiufeng who made a move.
Originally, Lin Jiufeng wanted to get Demon King Pingtian to persuade Demon King Jiao to stop or delay his plan.
This would give Lin Jiufeng some time to wait for the spring rain.
But who would have thought that Demon King Jiao’s ability to command the wind and the clouds directly allowed Lin Jiufeng to accumulate enough strength for a breakthrough?
In the end, Lin Jiufeng walked under the rain and defeated Demon King Jiao with one strike.
Following that, the 36 swords effortlessly suppressed Demon King Jiao.
After finishing his business, Lin Jiufeng brushed his clothes and left. He hid his true identity and left behind his unclaimed reputation and achievement.
After Lin Jiufeng extinguished the flames that could’ve started a wildfire, the world immediately fell silent. The conflicts disappeared quietly after the world witnessed Lin Jiufeng’s might against Demon King Jiao.
The world was quiet once more.
Even Demon King Dapeng who wanted to go to the Imperial Capital was deterred.
He flew to the Wei River and saw his old brothers. Seeing the miserable Demon King Jiao, Demon King Dapeng secretly rejoiced. It was fortunate that the location he was sealed at was quite a distance away from the Imperial Capital.
If not—and he arrived a step too early…
He would’ve been the one being suppressed or maybe he could’ve been dead by now.
The Imperial Capital remained bustling as usual.
After Lin Jiufeng suppressed Demon King Jiao with his sword, the capital became livelier.
Lanterns and decorations were set up, gongs and drums were sounded, and every commoner wore proud smiles on their faces.
They were filled with pride.
Every citizen of the Yuhua God Dynasty had this sense of pride.
The guardian of the Yuhua God Dynasty was actually so powerful and terrifying.
Ordinary people like them could live in peace under the protection of such a powerful person.
They would rather be a dog living in peaceful times than a human living in troubled times.
The common people have had a deep understanding of this saying since ancient times.
When the world was in chaos, they were bound to be the first ones to suffer.
Lin Jiufeng had saved the Yuhua God Dynasty, and it was also equivalent to saving them.
It was only natural that the common people would cheer and celebrate because of this.
Even the sisters in the brothels worked a little harder when serving others.
One could see the joy of the common people wherever one laid their eyes.
However, amidst these festivities, the Cold Palace was deserted as usual.
The livelier the outside world was, the more deserted the Cold Palace was.
After Lin Jiufeng’s return, he changed his clothes and loosened his coiled hair.
His long and soft hair that resembled a woman’s hair spread like a waterfall behind him.
Standing beneath the moonlight, behind him was a cherry tree that was slowly blooming.
After the rain, Lin Jiufeng consolidated his cultivation base in the Cold Palace. His aura affected the cherry trees. The cherry blossoms that were supposed to bloom in the future seemed to be congratulating Lin Jiufeng as they slowly bloomed in his presence.
With their growth, their alluring fragrance also intensified.
“Why did you reject Emperor De and Princess Yulin’s visitation?”
The white cat laid on Lin Jiufeng’s shoulder and meowed.
“The troubles of the Yuhua God Dynasty have already been resolved. One of them should be a good emperor, and the other should cultivate diligently. That would be their greatest repayment to me. So, why do they have to visit me?” Lin Jiufeng asked.
The moment he returned, Emperor De and Princess Yulin came to his door and asked to see him outside the Cold Palace.
But Lin Jiufeng completely ignored him.
He didn’t even open the door. His attitude towards their visit was steadfast.
“Your attitude towards the Emperor of the Yuhua God Dynasty is getting worse with each generation,” the white cat muttered.
Lin Jiufeng thought about it and agreed.
The first generation emperor, Emperor Yuan, was his biological younger brother.
Their relationship as brothers was very good.
Once something happened to Emperor Yuan, Lin Jiufeng would take the initiative to help him.
Regardless if those matters were big or small, Lin Jiufeng would do his best to help.
Sometimes, they would even talk and drink together.
When it came to Emperor Ming, he would always come to Lin Jiufeng’s door and asked him to solve the problems that he had encountered.
Lin Jiufeng would handle the big issues, but he wouldn’t bother with the small ones.
When it came to Emperor De, Lin Jiufeng didn’t care about him at all.
It has been ten years since he ascended to the throne, yet this was the first time that Lin Jiufeng gave him a hand.
Five years ago, he didn’t want to place the fate of the dynasty on a woman’s marriage.
Thus, Lin Jiufeng went to help Princess Yulin.
Imparting a few sword techniques to Princess Yulin and helping her in her cultivation should’ve been enough already.
“I don’t want those siblings to rely on me. The God Dynasty has been passed down for so many generations. It needs to rely on the meticulous governance of generations of emperors, not my power to deter their enemies.”
“I can solve major troubles, but I’m not their babysitter. If they think of me whenever something happens, then I’d rather have the Yuhua God Dynasty be wiped out as soon as possible.”
Lin Jiufeng stated what was in his heart.
For cases like this one regarding Demon King Jiao—which Emperor De really couldn’t solve— then Lin Jiufeng didn’t mind lending a hand.
But the issues of the people’s livelihoods, the daily dealings with the sects, and the methods to manage the world on a daily basis—all of these had to be handled by Emperor De himself.
Lin Jiufeng couldn’t help him.
Lin Jiufeng refused to see them because he didn’t want to become Emperor De’s pillar of support. He didn’t want to make Emperor De think that with Lin Jiufeng’s support, he would be able to sit as stable as a mountain on the throne.
“I don’t understand what you are thinking, but I support you,” the white cat said.
Lin Jiufeng looked at the clear moonlight.
His eyes were bright as he said, “Next, I will speed up the recovery rate of the world’s spiritual energy so that the people of the world can make their breakthroughs faster…”
“This is also a challenge for the Yuhua God Dynasty. If Emperor De and the others cannot control the situation, then the decline of the Yuhua God Dynasty will officially begin by then.”
“You want to let those demons go?” The white cat thought of this.
“Yes, there are still a few days before I can let them go.” Lin Jiufeng nodded.
“Won’t these demons bring disaster to the world if they left?” The white cat asked in surprise.
“If they cannot defeat me, yet they dared to bring a disaster into the world. I can kill them even if they are thousands of miles away. I can kill them with a stroke from my sword,” Lin Jiufeng replied rather seriously.
“Meow… Then, with the increased recovery rate of the world’s spiritual energy, can I also make a breakthrough into the Grotto-Heaven Realm?” The white cat’s eyes lit up.
“Yes, you can do it too.” Lin Jiufeng smiled slightly.
Most of the pills and treasures that he had received from signing in for the past ten years were eaten by the white cat for her to absorb.
She had made significant progress in the Human God Realm in the years that passed.
She wasn’t actually that far from a breakthrough.
If the recovery rate of the world’s spiritual energy was increased, the white cat would definitely be able to make a breakthrough into the Grotto-Heaven Realm.
At the very least, under Lin Jiufeng’s guidance and protection, making a breakthrough would be a very comfortable experience for her.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
It was close to midnight.
After midnight, Lin Jiufeng went down to the demon’s den.
He wanted to start signing in.
This would be one of his final sign-ins in this demon’s den.
