80 Years Of Signing-In At The Cold Palace, I Am Unrivalled - Chapter 20

Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Lin Jiufeng split the world apart and wiped out the night with a single sword.
It was as if a huge firework was blooming over the entire Forbidden City, instantly turning night into day.
Everyone’s face could be seen clearly.
Faces that were full of surprise, astonishment, and disbelief.
Just when they were about to kill Emperor Yuan, a sword energy flew over from hundreds of miles away.
A sword that brought with it a piercing coldness to the world!
At this moment, the night turned into daylight, summer turned into winter, and the biting sword energy became akin to a cold wind that blew over, making everyone feel the cold.
This sword was too strong!
“In the imperial capital of the Yuhua God Dynasty, there’s actually another Martial Sage?”
Kou Tiande was surprised.
He was fighting with Nameless and he couldn’t help but tremble when he saw this sword energy.
He couldn’t control his body at all, he could only tremble.
This sword aura was just too powerful and terrifying.
“So what if there’s another Martial Sage? He’s thinking too much if he thinks he can save Emperor Yuan!” The Martial Sage who attacked with the blade stood forward, feeling very strong and confident. He didn’t back down, insisting on killing Emperor Yuan.
Only by killing Emperor Yuan could he win the bet.
He was fixated on obtaining the token of the Holy Master of the demonic sects!
Emperor Yuan’s body was very weak right now, and he thought that he would definitely die.
But this sword energy gave him hope to live.
It was his Big Brother who came to his rescue.
“You are unable to kill me!” Emperor Yuan smiled weakly.
His faith in his Big Brother was resolute and everlasting.
“Die!” The blade light shocked the world, and it directly cut down.
Over the Forbidden City, the violent and mighty pressure of this attack directly shattered the surrounding buildings, causing a catastrophic mess.
He wanted to kill Emperor Yuan!
The scene was too shocking.
The martial art masters in the imperial capital looked at this from a distance, all of them felt extremely nervous.
They were unable to intervene in a battle of such a level, just the residual energies from the Martial Sages’ collisions were enough to obliterate them to pieces.
“Emperor Yuan is going to be beheaded!” Suddenly, someone exclaimed with his pupils dilated.
Everyone saw that the violent blade light was already slashing down.
Some people who couldn’t bear to see the beheading of the emperor couldn’t help but close their eyes.
Emperor Yuan was a good emperor.
He saved the dying Yuhua God Dynasty.
Although the Yuhua God Dynasty wasn’t fully healed yet, everyone saw the benefits that Emperor Yuan had brought to the nation.
Many people didn’t want him to die.
At this moment, a divine sword that seemed to have been sealed in dust for thousands of years was unsheathed.
The crisp sound it brought echoed in the ears of everyone in the imperial capital.
Some people hurriedly looked at the sword energy and exclaimed in surprise.
“The sword energy is here! It looks like Emperor Yuan is going to make it.”
Painted in everyone’s eyes was a shocking scene.
A sword energy came out from a place hundreds of miles away and almost instantly—it reached the Forbidden City.
Then, the enemies became akin to falling flowers. One after another, they fell onto the ground.
They were like beautiful leaves that were cut down as they lost their lives.
At this moment, the nine Martial Sages were akin to yellowed dead leaves.
Lin Jiufeng executed his Ultimate Heaven Slashing Sword Skill.
As the sword energy reached its destination, it performed a carpet-style sweeping, killing its targets regardless of anything else.
The entire imperial capital shivered under Lin Jiufeng’s sword light.
Standing on the top of the Forbidden City, the ancestor of King Tianying was captivated by this sword energy.
In his eyes, this sword aura was just too beautiful.
Inside this sword energy was a picturesque world with beautiful cherry blossoms flying through the sky.
The blossoms gradually charmed his eyes!
He didn’t have any thoughts of resisting at all.
As this sword energy flew past in front of his eyes…
His head also flew up, following the pace of this sword energy.
It was all for him to see the beauty of this sword energy for one final second.
He wasn’t the only Martial Sage above the Forbidden City that felt like this.
The meat mountain, Kou Tiande, saw the pinnacle of the martial path in this sword energy.
What could be considered to be the pinnacle?
The person—whom this sword energy belonged to—was the pinnacle.
He vaguely saw Lin Jiufeng under the cold moonlight, like a celestial in white clothes.
But there was too much fog around him, so he couldn’t take a clear look at Lin Jiufeng’s face.
To see more clearly, he took the initiative and approached this sword energy.
Then, he saw Lin Jiufeng’s back.
So tall and mighty.
The heads of the nine martial sages were cut off by this single sword energy.
None of them managed to resist.
Under Lin Jiufeng’s sword energy, it was like they were committing suicide, all of them died under the mighty power of the Ultimate Heaven Slashing Sword Skill.
They didn’t have the willpower that Lin Jiufeng possessed as they were immediately charmed by the sword energy of the Ultimate Heaven Slashing Sword Skill.
They were not wronged for dying to it!
The people in the Forbidden City and those in the imperial capital couldn’t believe their eyes.
Emperor Yuan was dumbfounded.
What appeared in his mind was the figure of his handsome Big Brother.
The old emperor opened his mouth wide.
His face was splashed with Kou Tiande’s blood, but he didn’t care about it anymore.
In his eyes, there was only the sword energy that appeared just now.
“In the imperial capital, there’s actually such a terrifying cultivator?”
The old emperor was trembling all over.
He was filled with excitement.
He could finally see hope that the Yuhua God Dynasty could be saved.
Nameless looked at this scene calmly.
He was an existence similar to a [Wooden Man], he didn’t have any other expression at all.
“Teacher… it’s definitely Teacher!”
Lin Tianyuan, who was protected by Emperor Yuan, muttered excitedly.
In the entire imperial capital, Lin Tianyuan believed in his heart that only Teacher had such a terrifying sword technique.
At this moment, the entire imperial capital went silent for a few seconds.
Then, endless cheers and shouts of excitement erupted.
Everyone was excited.
Beheading the nine Martial Sages with one sword energy.
What kind of godly swordsmanship was this?
What kind of godly cultivator was this?
This night, the Forbidden City was completely in chaos, and everyone fell into a revel.
The realm that countless cultivators dreamed to reach…
A single Martial Sage was enough to suppress an entire country.
And tonight, twelve Martial Sages appeared in the Forbidden City.
Excluding Emperor Yuan who reached this realm through force, there were still eleven of them.
Nine Martial Sages wanted to kill Emperor Yuan, and the two martial sages from the Forbidden City could hardly resist them.
But at the crucial moment—a hidden senior in the imperial capital killed the nine Martial Sages with a single sword energy.
The development that happened was similar to those stories depicted in the manuscripts of legends. The common people talked about this matter with fervent excitement.
The martial arts expert who could slay nine Martial Sages with a single sword energy was the guardian of their Yuhua God Dynasty, standing on the side of the royal family.
For the common people, this was the happiest thing in the world.
Therefore, they started to party.
The men, women, old people, and the children—they all cheered.
The imperial capital cheered, but the Forbidden City was in sorrow.
Lin Jiufeng killed the nine Martial Sages with a single sword attack, which was indeed very powerful and inspiring.
But after Emperor Yuan was rescued.
They found that he had already reached the limit of his life.
Large amounts of life energy had already been devoured from his body just from cultivating that demonic cultivation technique, but if one added the life energies that he had burned to forcibly reach the Martial Sages Realm just now.
It was an understatement to say that Emperor Yuan’s life energy was now at his final dredge.
Even though the old emperor kept transfusing True Qi into Emperor Yuan’s body, this didn’t stop Emperor Yuan’s body from becoming old and weak.
However, Emperor Yuan wasn’t sad.
Under the gaze of all the court officials from the imperial court, he opened his eyes and said weakly, “I am running out of time.”
“I have been on the throne for more than ten years and I consider myself diligent in my work.”
“The court officials have changed batch after batch and I have gotten rid of the useless and corrupt. I believe that all of you will fully assist the next emperor to reform the dynasty and bring benefits to the common people.”
The civil and military officials, headed by the Cabinet Chief, couldn’t help but sob as they looked sadly at Emperor Yuan.
Emperor Yuan was a good emperor.
“All of you leave this place, I want to give my orders for some important matters.”
Emperor Yuan waved his hand and dismissed everyone else aside from Lin Tianyuan.
Including the old emperor.
The old emperor sighed sadly.
Both his sons and grandsons died young.
But rather than saying that they died in the hands of others, it was more accurate to say that they died in the hands of that ancient demonic book.
All court officials retreated.
But the Queen didn’t.
She was Emperor Yuan’s arranged wife that had been decided for him when both of them were still in the wombs of their mothers.
At this moment, she knelt on the ground and cried, “Your Majesty, if you want to give your orders for some important matters, you should first establish our son as the Crown Prince.”
“Then, with the court officials of the imperial court to assist him…”
“You can leave with a peace of mind.”
The Queen wanted to ask for the throne for her son.
The court officials watched in silence.
“Get out and kneel outside!” Emperor Yuan looked at the expectant prince and said indifferently.
The prince was stunned!
And so was the Queen!
The court officials looked at each other and knew that Emperor Yuan didn’t favor this prince.
They left one after another.
But the Queen was unwilling.
How could she watch as the throne that belonged to her own son, fall into the hands of others?
But before she could speak, she was forcefully supported outside by an old eunuch in the palace.
None of the Queen’s majesty was left for her after this incident.
In Chaotian Hall, Emperor Yuan’s face was pale.
His black hair had already turned white.
His breathing was weak as he said, “Go to the Cold Palace and ask your Teacher to come over…”
“I wish to see my Big Brother.”
Lin Tianyuan nodded immediately and was about to go out.
“No need. I’m here,” Lin Jiufeng sighed.
He had been watching silently in the Cold Palace.
To him, the distance of hundreds of miles could be crossed in an instant.
He came to the Chaotian Hall.
Seeing the dying Emperor Yuan, Lin Jiufeng felt a sudden pain in his heart.
When he saw Emperor Yuan not long ago, his younger brother still looked energetic.
Now, he looked to be an old man in his seventies or eighties.
The crucial point was that he was only 30 years old.
[Do you want to Sign-In before the Chaotian Hall?]
At this moment, a line of words appeared before Lin Jiufeng’s eyes.
“Sign in!” Lin Jiufeng didn’t expect that it was already the dawn of the next day. He wasn’t in a mood for anything, so he just casually signed in.
[Sign-In successful. Received the Life Resuscitation Technique!]

Lin Jiufeng looked at the introduction of the resuscitation technique.
His eyes lit up.
He didn’t expect that a casual Sign-In would bring him a treasure that could save Emperor Yuan’s life.
Looking at Emperor Yuan’s current state, however, Lin Jiufeng felt that it would be lucky if he could still be saved.
