80 Years Of Signing-In At The Cold Palace, I Am Unrivalled - Chapter 15
Chapter 15: Continue to Stay Low Key
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Emperor Yuan was determined in his decision. He had been training his own forces for over 10 years now, and he also had a Martial Sage in his camp. If he didn’t act now, when should he act? When the other side had their own Martial Sages to deal with his own?
The Cabinet Chief couldn’t persuade him against it.
Seeing that Emperor Yuan was fixed on this, he could only nod and said, “I will do my best and give my life to the nation and Your Majesty.”
Emperor Yuan was moved and said, “With the support of Teacher, I am much more confident that we will succeed.”
“I shall go back first. This time, the elimination of the vassals will definitely be a move that will shock the world. Preparations must be made first, otherwise, we won’t be able to control the situation fully by then.” The Cabinet Chief was quick to act.
Since they had already decided to do it, they must prepare everything properly first.
“Tianyuan, send the Cabinet Chief out,” Emperor Yuan said to Lin Tianyuan.
“Yes!” Lin Tianyuan cupped his fists and replied in a deep voice.
He then sent the Cabinet Chief out of the Forbidden City. When he came back again, Emperor Yuan was sitting on a raised platform in the center of the huge Central Hall, and a large pile of documents was piled up on the table, all of which were state documents.
A dim light from a lamp illuminated Emperor Yuan’s face, making him appear thin, albeit his eyes were firm.
Emperor Yuan had been spending every day of the past 10 years the same way.
Every night in this seat, he always went through various documents and memorials, without spending a single day to slack.
Even the most demanding people would say that Emperor Yuan was a diligent man who saved a falling nation from ruin by turning the tide around.
However, the problems of the Yuhua God Dynasty that had been accumulating for hundreds of years could no longer be resolved. It was about to explode at any moment now.
Emperor Yuan dealt with the problems one by one but he realized that the number of people that he could use was just far too few for the problems that he had to deal with.
Fortunately, Lin Tianyuan was finally grown up. He also had a decent cultivation base. This was why Emperor Yuan decided to bring him into the officialdom and officially groom him.
Lin Tianyuan watched as Emperor Yuan carefully reviewed the memorials—the memorials representing various national affairs were revised by him one by one, either by agreeing to it, or by putting forward his opinions, and sending them back to be revised again.
In the past, Lin Tianyuan hated his father for not acknowledging his identity, but today, witnessing Emperor Yuan’s predicament, the resentment in his heart vanished.
Everyone had their own difficulties.
It wasn’t until the latter half of the night that Emperor Yuan finished revising the memorials.
He let out a sigh of relief. Most of the oil in the lamp had already been depleted.
Lin Tianyuan stood straight.
Standing on one side of the hall, he seemed to blend with the shadows.
Emperor Yuan looked at Lin Tianyuan’s body that was taller than himself.
He smiled with satisfaction and said, “You’ve grown up!”
“Father, I will help you in the future,” Lin Tianyuan couldn’t help but speak up.
Seeing that Emperor Yuan worked so hard for the nation, Lin Tianyuan really admired him.
“You are already a Golden Core Realm cultivator, you can indeed help me out now,” Emperor Yuan said with a smile.
“Father…” Lin Tianyuan hesitated.
“What’s wrong?” Emperor Yuan asked curiously.
“My cultivation level has already reached the Grandmaster Realm a few days ago,” Lin Tianyuan said solemnly.
“What?” Emperor Yuan looked at Lin Tianyuan in surprise. A 15-year-old Grandmaster?
“You’re not kidding? You’re only 15 years old… How could you be a Grandmaster?” Emperor Yuan was surprised as he hurriedly asked.
“It’s… it’s thanks to Teacher’s teaching. I am very stupid and could only swallow whatever the Teacher teaches me without understanding all of it. But even so, I still managed to reach the Grandmaster Realm,” Lin Tianyuan said from the bottom of his heart.
In his eyes, Lin Jiufeng was an invincible existence hidden in the Cold Palace.
“Big Brother…” Emperor Yuan was at a loss for speech.
How could it be?
Wasn’t Big Brother’s cultivation base destroyed by their father 10 years ago?
Didn’t Big Brother have no resources for cultivation anymore after he was sent to the Cold Palace?
How could his Big Brother groom Lin Tianyuan into such a powerful cultivator?
Various thoughts and theories appeared in Emperor Yuan’s mind at this moment.
Hearing his son’s words, some confusing parts that he had noticed back then finally had their answers.
Ten years had passed and the stress from handling state affairs made him look older than he was before. Although he could rely on his cultivation base to look young, those with discerning eyes would still notice that he had aged.
But his Big Brother still looked the same as before—young and energetic—living alone and away from the commotion of the outside world in the Cold Palace, like a celestial that was banished to the mortal world.
In addition… that Martial Sage!
Emperor Yuan suddenly remembered a matter from 10 years ago…
‘I complained to Big Brother back then, and then the Martial Sage Nameless took the initiative to find me and help me kill my enemies to stabilize the nation.’
‘That Martial Sage Nameless was asked by Big Brother to come and help me?’
“Big Brother… how powerful is he exactly?” Emperor Yuan asked Lin Tianyuan in shock.
“No one knows how powerful Teacher is,” Lin Tianyuan shook his head and replied.
Emperor Yuan never thought that his brother had a hand in this matter.
After all, everyone knew that the previous crown prince’s cultivation had been destroyed by the late emperor.
But now, everything seemed to fall into place.
As for Lin Tianyuan…
He followed Lin Jiufeng for 10 years, yet he had never seen the latter execute any technique. The only time he witnessed Lin Jiufeng’s power was at that moment when Lin Jiufeng broke through the Martial Sage Realm.
A lake of water turned into a rain of swords with just a casual swing of his finger…
Lin Tianyuan felt that he needed to learn from his Teacher for a lifetime before he could have the ability to drive the world’s energies with ease like his Teacher.
“Big Brother is indeed Big Brother…” Emperor Yuan smiled bitterly. When he was young, he wanted to surpass his Big Brother and obtain some achievements to make Big Brother proud.
But now, he couldn’t help but smile bitterly.
After Lin Tianyuan left, Lin Jiufeng finally experienced quietness once again.
No one bothered him anymore, and he also didn’t have to sign-in for the pills that Lin Tianyuan needed to cultivate. Considering all of these, Lin Jiufeng’s mood was quite good.
He started his daily meditating and Qi refining, then he practiced controlling the world’s energies, combining them with his martial will, and integrating them into his martial arts.
Stacking these improvements layer by layer, Lin Jiufeng became stronger bit by bit.
The Martial Sage Realm was divided into several stages.
Upon just reaching the Martial Sage realm, a person would definitely be at the Profound Insight Stage, after which was the Life Knowing Stage.
The stage of Life Knowing was to thoroughly understand one’s own life and one’s own foundation.
After Life Knowing was Fish Leap.
The entire sea was for the fish to leap.
The world was the sea and the cultivator was a tiny fish. Once the cultivator leaped over the shackles of the world which was the sea, he would be able to truly transcend the world.
The last stage was the Martial Path Great Sage!
These four stages represented how strong a person would be in the Martial Sage Realm.
Lin Jiufeng was currently at the Profound Insight Stage of the Martial Sage Realm.
But his Martial Will and his proficiency in harnessing the world’s energies could crush those of the Life Knowing Stage.
Lin Jiufeng thought silently ‘I’m already at the Martial Sage Realm. I only have to slowly increase my cultivation base. There is no need to worry about other things.’
The Yuhua God Dynasty was still stable anyway, no one would come to bother him.
After reaching Martial Sage, Lin Jiufeng finally knew how to fly.
His True Qi had transformed into a vast and deep river in his dantian. Relying on his boundless True Qi, Lin Jiufeng flew in the air like a bird without the aid or support of any external forces.
He flew in the air for about two hours before he finally stopped.
“Short-term flight is no longer a problem. As my cultivation base gets stronger, the flight time will become longer, which is good.” Lin Jiufeng was satisfied.
He could continuously fly for about two hours at an incredibly fast flight speed. He had no idea if he was too strong or the others were just too weak, but one thing was for sure—his flight duration and speed truly were terrifying.
In the past, Nameless could only continuously fly for a quarter of an hour before his True Qi was depleted.
To kill an enemy thousands of miles away, Lin Jiufeng only needed a few minutes to travel to his enemy’s location.
“It’s been more than 10 years since I’ve arrived in this world. I am finally able to somewhat protect myself from others with my strength. In the past few years, the spirit energy in the world seemed to have increased by a large margin. It seems that a world of great competition and fighting is about to come soon. I still have to become stronger.” Lin Jiufeng sighed.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
In his previous life, he had read a lot of novels.
He knew that once the so-called world of great competition started, the various geniuses in the world would be like carps crossing the river, appearing in numbers so large that it would be uncountable.
His little bit of strength now would be nothing at all by then.
Lin Jiufeng didn’t want to go out just to become a stepping stone for a chosen one of destiny or something.
Wasn’t it good enough to just stay low-key and sign-in silently in the Cold Palace?
