80 Years Of Signing-In At The Cold Palace, I Am Unrivalled - Chapter 32
Chapter 32: Had A Neighbor
Lin Jiufeng left the Cold Palace with the little white cat and went to the royal library.
All sorts of books that the Yuhua God Dynasty had gathered over the years were hidden and stored here.
The security was tight.
If anybody wanted to enter, they had to be thoroughly examined.
But Lin Jiufeng walked past them and strutted in.
Nobody discovered him.
Even though Lin Jiufeng walked in front of the guards, they didn’t discover him.
Accurately speaking, they could not discover him.
Having entered Life Knowing, Lin Jiufeng had truly advanced in all aspects. If he didn’t wish to be discovered, then the average person wouldn’t be able to find him.
The little white cat followed Lin Jiufeng. It became curious.
These people all didn’t notice him?
However, Lin Jiufeng was too lazy to explain.
He walked into the room where ancient books and records regarding the demonic sects were stored with the little white cat.
“I’ll look for more information about that so-called Demon Lord.”
Lin Jiufeng started to read each book by following the catalog.
His reading speed was tremendously fast. He seemed to be only skimming through the pages of the book, yet he had read through them.
As he browsed through the books one by one, Lin Jiufeng soon found an excerpt introducing the Demon Lord.
The leader of the demonic sects, 1500 years ago, had the title ‘Demon Lord’.
But he also had another title.
The last Demon Lord!
This title meant that after him—there would no longer be any Human Gods considering that the spiritual energy of the world was gradually declining.
The Demon Lord was one of the final Human Gods of that era.
After they died, even Martial Sages disappeared.
It was only in the recent decade or two did a Martial Sage emerged.
This meant that the world’s spiritual energy was slowly recovering.
But it would still be incomparably difficult for a Human God to appear.
The current recovery rate of the world’s spiritual energy was far too slow for that.
The little white cat called out. It jumped onto Lin Jiufeng’s shoulders and eagerly read the book.
It was able to understand its contents.
The book had indeed recorded the deeds of the last Demon Lord.
“When did the Demon Lord build that palace deep underground?” Lin Jiufeng asked.
The area deep underground was one with extreme negative energies. There must be some significant meaning for the Demon Lord to have buried the underground palace there.
The little white cat used its claws to write on Lin Jiufeng’s body, stroke by stroke.
“1000 years ago!” The little white cat wrote.
“Does that mean that you’ve also lived for a thousand years?” Lin Jiufeng asked in surprise.
“I ate a lot of pills. Some of them were pills that the Demon Lord treasured. With their help, I was able to live for so long.” The white cat wrote.
“It turns out that you’re already 1000 years old. You’re older than me.”
Lin Jiufeng couldn’t help but comment.
The white cat’s eyes narrowed. It stared at Lin Jiufeng as it lifted its claws.
Although it was 1000 years old, it remained in the underground palace the whole time.
It lacked common sense.
“You personally witnessed the Demon Lord’s death?” Lin Jiufeng calmly changed the topic.
The white cat nodded.
“For 1000 years, you’ve never left?” Lin Jiufeng continued to ask.
“No, I ate that life-prolonging pill at the start and was in a coma for a really long time…”
“When I woke up, I found that there was somebody at the entrance of the underground palace, studying how to undo the seal.” The white cat wrote on Lin Jiufeng’s body.
“That should be about 700 to 800 years ago, the Chasing Corpse Sect’s golden era. You were in a coma for about 200 to 300 years, so the Demon Lord’s body had probably disappeared during that time.” Lin Jiufeng deduced.
The little white cat stopped writing.
It became a little depressed.
Lin Jiufeng continued going through the books.
All sorts of books recorded considerable information about the Demon Lord.
But their records spanned 1500 years ago, none of them had any recent information about the Demon Lord.
Lin Jiufeng even saw that the demonic cultivation technique that Lin Tianyuan handed over to him was the cultivation technique of that Demon Lord back then.
Lin Jiufeng finally understood why two emperors successively wanted to cultivate it.
It was the cultivation technique of a Human God after all.
Anyone would be tempted.
At the end of browsing through the books, the little white cat had already lost its hopes.
It jumped off Lin Jiufeng’s shoulders as it left with its back turned to him in sadness.
It did not say any word of goodbyes to Lin Jiufeng.
The small white figure disappeared from the library.
Lin Jiufeng shook his head.
He put down the books and prepared to leave.
[Sign-In at the library?]
“Sign in!” Lin Jiufeng nodded.
[Sign-In successful. Received Well-illuminated Dao Heart quality.]
Lin Jiufeng was puzzled.
Well-illuminated Dao Heart quality?
What was this?
[Well-illuminated Dao Heart quality. It will help you find the right direction. You will be able to take fewer detours when cultivating.]
Lin Jiufeng’s eyes lit up.
“This quality is pretty overpowered.”
He left the royal library.
Lin Jiufeng did not go look for the little white cat.
After all, that white cat was quite formidable. There was no need to worry about its safety.
If it were to leave the imperial capital to travel elsewhere, Lin Jiufeng would not force it to stay.
He returned to the Cold Palace and continued with his routine.
Signing in, cultivating, and gaining enlightenment.
In this cold winter, Lin Jiufeng continued to live a life detached from worldly affairs.
Three days had passed yet the white cat still hadn’t returned to the Cold Palace.
Lin Jiufeng could only shake his head.
Time went by slowly.
On this day, Dachun delivered wine and food once again.
It was the sixth day since Lin Jiufeng returned from the Northwest Plains.
Dachun said from behind the wall. “Your Royal Highness, did you know?”
“Xianbei of the Northwest Plains had an upheaval.”
Lin Jiufeng calmly drank his wine as he asked, “What upheaval?”
“According to the news received by our imperial guards, the fragmented Xianbei was united by an expert. But in less than a month, that expert was killed at the Celestial Lake on the Celestial Mountains. The united Xianbei fragmented once more…”
“The fragmentation forced them to a corner to the point that they even sent their own men to request rations from the imperial capital for the winter. They also indicated their willingness to acknowledge their allegiance to the throne.” Dachun shared while shaking his head.
He seemed to have found the events a tad bit unbelievable.
Lin Jiufeng commented softly. “His Majesty must be really happy then.”
“Yes, the entire court is delighted because we no longer have to go to war.”
“I didn’t manage to come here for a few times since I was too busy with preparing for an upcoming war…”
“But now that Xianbei has fragmented once more, I am not so busy anymore, so I came here to bring food and wine for Your Royal Highness,” Dachun said with a chuckle.
“That’s good.” Lin Jiufeng nodded in satisfaction. “With war, many people will die.”
His efforts of traveling day and night in a rush to the Northwest Plains to deliver that one strike didn’t go in vain with this outcome.
Dachun also shared some interesting court matters with Lin Jiufeng.
Afterwards, the curtain to this food delivery ended.
Lin Jiufeng returned to his courtyard. He laid on the frost jade bed and brought out the demonic cultivation technique that Lin Tianyuan gave him.
[Ancient Demonic Book]
This demonic book was very evil.
It killed two emperors from the Yuhua God Dynasty in succession.
However, after Lin Jiufeng was equipped with the Well-illuminated Dao Heart, his cultivation speed had become even more outstanding. His mentality also became more stable.
He was not afraid of this [Ancient Demonic Book] at all.
Flipping open the parchment, Lin Jiufeng slowly read the contents of this demonic cultivation technique.
“I see.” Lin Jiufeng gained a sudden revelation after reading it.
“This demon cultivation technique matches my Demonic Great Refinement, it just so happens that I can cultivate them together.” Lin Jiufeng smiled.
As for its drawback of devouring life?
Lin Jiufeng thought.
‘So long as I advanced fast enough, I won’t be afraid of being devoured by it.’
Right as Lin Jiufeng was thoroughly engrossed in studying the demonic cultivation technique, a meow came from the Cold Palace.
It was the little white cat, it had returned.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
It initially did not want to let out a cry.
But for some reason, it felt that it had to inform Lin Jiufeng that it was back.
So it meowed once then went to hide in the underground palace.
Lin Jiufeng was in the middle of cultivating the demonic cultivation technique. He could not divert his attention away from the book, but the corner of his lips raised at an angle.
In this Cold Palace, he now had a neighbor.
