The night after Emperor Yuan left, Lin Jiufeng woke up Nameless who was in the copper coffin.
“Master!” Nameless called out respectfully.
“From now on, your master is no longer me, but the Emperor of the Yuhua God Dynasty, Emperor Yuan. Go to him.” Lin Jiufeng ordered placidly, switching the identity of Nameless’s master to Emperor Yuan.
Although Lin Jiufeng didn’t want to handle the troubles that his younger brother had shared with him early in the day, handing Nameless to him and reducing the pressure that he was feeling with the help of Nameless was still something that Lin Jiufeng could do.
With Nameless—who was a Martial Sage—the resistance against Emperor Yuan’s reforms would probably be greatly reduced.
On other hand, he also had a selfish motive in doing so. The more stable his younger brother’s position was, the safer he was in the Cold Palace. Nobody would come to disturb him.
If the Yuhua God Dynasty really was to fall into pieces, Lin Jiufeng’s place would become far from the peace that he wanted.
After all, beneath this Cold Palace was an area with extremely negative energy.
Many people would definitely covet the secrets in such a place.
Nameless turned and left the Cold Palace, he went to the Forbidden City to look for the current emperor.
Lin Jiufeng had no idea what happened in the Forbidden City last night.
But when he woke up the next morning, he saw his own nephew.
A very handsome little fellow with delicate and refined features.
He was already five years old, but he had yet to be admitted into the imperial family’s pedigree.
It only struck Emperor Yuan when he was at his wit’s end that his older brother was well-learned and would definitely have no problem teaching a child.
In the Cold Palace, Lin Jiufeng looked at the little rascal before him and asked, “What is your name?”
“Lin Tianyuan!” The child answered in a clear and sweet-sounding voice.
“Do you know why you have come here?” Lin Jiufeng continued to question.
“To listen to Your Royal Highness’s teachings,” Lin Tianyuan replied.
“Alright, don’t call me Your Royal Highness in the future, just call me Teacher.” Lin Jiufeng waved his hand. This child was sent here by his younger brother. No matter what, Lin Jiufeng had to teach him well.
“Yes, Teacher.” Lin Tianyuan knelt down to kowtow, neat and efficient.
He did not have the muddle-headedness and meekness of other children.
“Henceforth, you will follow me. I don’t need you to serve me or whatnot. Just focus on cultivating, I will guide you,” Lin Jiufeng advised.
“Alright, Teacher,” Lin Tianyuan agreed.
“Here’s a secret manual, use it for cultivation.” Lin Jiufeng handed the Glorious Dream of Spring and Autumn technique that he had gotten from a previous sign-in to Lin Tianyuan.
This was a very powerful inner strength cultivation technique, Lin Jiufeng was also practicing the same technique.
Lin Tianyuan received it reverently then went through it in detail.
He directly asked Lin Jiufeng about the parts that he couldn’t understand.
One adult and one child began the days of quiet cultivation in the Cold Palace.
Lin Jiufeng gradually realized that Lin Tianyuan had a pretty good talent for cultivation.
He had only started his cultivation a month ago, yet he had already completed his journey through Foundation Establishment. His speed was even faster than when Lin Jiufeng was still the Crown Prince.
Of course, the Glorious Dream of Spring and Autumn technique, and the Foundation Establishment Pills that Lin Jiufeng received from signing in, including Lin Jiufeng’s personal pointers all contributed to his swift cultivation speed. However, Lin Tianyuan’s talent was truly astonishing, not to be underestimated.
A month later, Lin Jiufeng imparted to him a sword skill.
Ultimate Heaven Slashing Sword Skill!
This was the sword skill that Lin Jiufeng received from his very first sign-in, and also one of his only two sword skills. It was tremendously powerful and could instantly kill an enemy.
Lin Jiufeng instructed Lin Tianyuan to unsheathe his sword a thousand times a day without slacking. Without slacking meant that he must be focused all throughout the action of unsheathing for it to be counted to the thousand times per day.
The five-year-old Lin Tianyuan gritted his teeth, his thin and small body forcefully persisted throughout. Taking one Foundation Establishment Pill every two days, all the nutrients for his body were sufficiently supplemented by the pill.
Every seven days, Lin Jiufeng would let Lin Tianyuan make a trip home to see his own mother, then he would return to continue cultivating.
Of course, Lin Jiufeng could also relax while eating the delicacies and drinking the good wine that Dachun brought. Afterwards, he would then listen to Dachun sharing the trivial matters happening in the outside world.
“Your Royal Highness, something big happened in the imperial capital yesterday,” Dachun said with a laugh.
Lin Jiufeng asked, “What something big?”
“His Majesty suddenly announced land reforms yesterday, it will start from the imperial capital itself. The first to bear the brunt are the four big family clans in the imperial capital. But they objected with everything, a good half of the court officials also objected,” Dachun said.
Lin Jiufeng quietly drank his wine and prompted. “Then?”
“Then, His Majesty got the imperial guards to take down the members of the four big family clans and throw them into prison in the presence of the court officials,” Dachun said excitedly.
“What reaction did the four big family clans have?” Lin Jiufeng asked placidly.
After handing Nameless to Emperor Yuan, Lin Jiufeng knew that Emperor Yuan would make a big move, but he didn’t expect that this younger brother of his could actually remain so calm to the point that he waited until a month later before acting.
“Of course they rebelled. The four big family clans directly contacted the Forbidden Troops1, wanting to rid the emperor of disloyal court officials and rise in revolt at night,” said Dachun.
Lin Jiufeng thought for a while.
He might be cultivating last night, but he didn’t hear the sounds of any upheaval.
“There wasn’t any commotion last night.”
Although the Cold Palace was located in a remote place, he would still be able to sense the revolt of the Forbidden Troops.
“Of course, there was no commotion. Just as they were preparing to rebel, that Martial Sage acted. He killed all the experts of the four big family clans, the traitor general of the Forbidden Troops was also killed. He quelled the storm within a very short time. Today morning, the court underwent a great purge. His Majesty’s prestige is unprecedentedly powerful, no one dares to act presumptuously anymore,” said Dachun agitatedly.
After saying all of these, he quietly asked, “Your Royal Highness, was it you who got that Martial Sage to act?”
In the entire Yuhua God Dynasty, only Dachun knew that Lin Jiufeng had a Martial Sage under his command.
Lin Jiufeng laughed and said, “That is His Majesty’s Martial Sage subordinate. I’m just a dethroned Crown Prince who is imprisoned in the Cold Palace. How will I have a Martial Sage subordinate?”
“We’re done here, pack up the things and leave. I’ll see you next time.”
Dachun let out an ‘oh’.
He knew that Lin Jiufeng didn’t want to talk about that matter so he immediately stopped asking about it. He obediently packed his things and left.
After Dachun left, Lin Jiufeng looked towards the Forbidden City and murmured, “You should be feeling less pressure by now. With a Martial Sage supporting you, any resistance against your reforms would be much smaller.”
Cleaning up the resistance in the court was just the first step.
He still had a very long way to go next.
Meanwhile, Lin Jiufeng continued to Sign-In. His routine continued as he waited for an opportune moment to make his breakthrough to the next realm, all the while guiding Lin Tianyuan as he cultivated.
In a flash, ten years went by.
The tenth year of the Yuhua Yuan era.
And also the tenth year of Emperor Yuan’s ascension.
Lin Jiufeng had now spent over 15 years in the Cold Palace.
He transformed from a youth in his early twenties to a forty-year-old uncle.
Through the trials of time, what remained unchanged was only that handsome face of his.
At the end of the ten years, Lin Jiufeng’s cultivation base reached the peak of the Great Grandmaster Realm.
Peak in its truest sense.
He wasn’t in a hurry to make a breakthrough, though. In fact, he could have done so five years ago.
But Lin Jiufeng had just grasped the subtleties of the Martial Sage Realm at that time and began polishing himself with no rush to make a breakthrough.
All the way till now, he was still sharpening.
But after the passing of a decade, Lin Jiufeng’s strength had grown incredibly strong.
Lin Jiufeng dared state that he could kill a Martial Sage like Nameless with a snap of his fingers.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
This was the result of his accumulation over the decade.
Throughout the ten years, the only person to witness Lin Jiufeng’s might was Lin Tianyuan.
He grew from a five-year-old child to a 15-year-old teen with a very tall height and a young handsome face.
Despite being so innocent-looking, his capabilities weren’t to be undermined.
And during these ten years, it could be said that the outside world had experienced a lot of sudden changes and persevered through many intense situations.
