Lin Jiufeng’s cultivation base was still at the Immortal Treasury stage of the Human God Realm
He was trying his best to unlock the treasures hidden within his body.
But no matter how diligent he was, he felt as if his body was akin to that of a bottomless abyss.
No matter what he did, something seemed amiss. As a result, he couldn’t help but ask the white cat as to why he couldn’t make a breakthrough into the next stage of the Human God Realm.
The white cat looked at Lin Jiufeng speechlessly.
It moved its claws and wrote a few words.
After so many years, its words were still as ugly as ever, but Lin Jiufeng had gotten used to it already.
To be honest, he was starting to think that its penmanship was somewhat adorable.
“You’re already a Human God expert, why are you still asking me this?”
Lin Jiufeng was suddenly enlightened. “Ah!”
“To think that I forgot that your cultivation base is still not at the Human God Realm! My bad, it’s my mistake. I won’t ask you anymore.”
The white cat looked at Lin Jiufeng. It was ashamed and furious at the same time.
It felt that Lin Jiufeng was intentionally humiliating it.
His words didn’t sound malicious, but their underlying meaning was shameful for the white cat.
It wasn’t slacking. It worked very hard.
In fact, the white cat was already at the peak of the Martial Sage Realm.
Unfortunately, it encountered a bottleneck while it was a single step away from the Human God Realm.
The bottleneck that it had encountered was the reason why it was ridiculed by Lin Jiufeng.
The white cat reached out its claws, wanting to scratch Lin Jiufeng.
But Lin Jiufeng turned around and left it behind directly.
“I’m going to try and comprehend the essence of the Immortal Treasury stage…”
“Guard the door well.”
Lin Jiufeng’s serious, yet seemingly casual manner of speaking further infuriated the white cat.
It gestured with its claws while staring at Lin Jiufeng’s back.
Its sharp nails had already emerged from its meaty claws.
It was angry.
Lin Jiufeng’s life this year consisted of his usual continuous signing in. Sometimes, he would purposely provoke and tease the white cat, adding a bit of fun to his peaceful life.
Of course, the most important thing for him was to thoroughly comprehend the essence of the Immortal Treasury stage.
There were many treasures within the Immortal Treasury stage.
Physical Body Immortal Treasury, Divine Soul Immortal Treasury, True Qi Immortal Treasury, Daoist Charm Immortal Treasury.
These were the four great immortal secrets that Lin Jiufeng comprehended within the Immortal Treasury stage of the Human God Realm.
He had already unlocked the Physical Body Immortal Treasury.
As a reward for his comprehension, his body’s foundation was further solidified and strengthened. He could now kill someone of the same cultivation realm as him with only a single punch.
Just this single immortal treasury alone increased his strength exponentially.
For the Divine Soul Immortal Treasury, Lin Jiufeng cultivated the Innate Soul Refining Technique and refined his Divine Soul into an avatar of himself.
The True Qi Immortal Treasury had revealed a secret door within one’s True Qi.
From beyond that door was a world filled with ancient True Qi runes. With his comprehension of the True Qi Immortal Treasury, Lin Jiufeng’s every move now reflected those resplendent ancient True Qi runes.
The Daoist Charm Immortal Treasury allowed Lin Jiufeng to look at the very essence of the world itself. He could now reach out and feel the pulse of the Great Dao. His heartbeat was now synchronized with the breathing of the earth itself as he walked on the ground.
The four great immortal treasures increased Lin Jiufeng’s strength by a hundredfold.
He really felt that he could destroy this world if he wanted to.
This feeling came along with his increase in strength.
But despite all of these he still couldn’t make a breakthrough away from the Immortal Treasury stage.
‘What exactly is wrong?’ Lin Jiufeng wondered.
‘I’ve read through the few books that described the Immortal Treasury stage of the Human God Realm. However, what they have described seems to be vastly different than mine…’
‘In those books, the Immortal Treasury stage seems to be a simple stage to surpass.’ Lin Jiufeng frowned.
Opening the four great immortal treasures allowed his strength to continuously rise. Under such circumstances, he naturally wanted to break through the Immortal Treasury stage to enter the next small stage of the Human God Realm.
“I want to reach the peak of the Human God Realm as soon as possible. I want to see what’s beyond it,” Lin Jiufeng said with a look of longing on his face.
With his cultivation base, he might not be invincible in the mortal world, but he was still a top expert.
Lin Jiufeng had no interest in power and authority.
Lin Jiufeng wasn’t interested in reputation either.
Lin Jiufeng didn’t bother with seeking beautiful women too.
He was only interested in one thing—the peak of the martial path.
“I have a hunch that the Human God Realm is definitely not the highest cultivation realm. It’s just that any information concerning the realms beyond it seemed to have been erased. No one knows about it. Apart from a few mentions in those ancient books, there is nothing else…’
His motivation for reaching the peak of the Human God Realm was not that complicated.
He simply wanted to find out what was beyond it.
‘After I successfully conquered this great mountain known as the Human God Realm, the world in the future would definitely become even more vast and wonderful,’ Lin Jiufeng said with desire flickering within his eyes.
Lin Jiufeng’s desire and ambition were laid bare. His priority was to continue accumulating his strength, so he could surpass the Human God Realm as soon as possible.
Early in the morning, a young monk arrived.
At noon, two Daoist priests arrived.
In the evening, a man with a towering physique arrived.
The three of them arrived at the Imperial Capital on the same day. They didn’t do anything out of line, but each of them did something in common—they all went to look for an information broker.
The young monk found an old man in the Imperial Capital.
The old man was only 20 years old back then.
He was a person who witnessed that piece of history.
But for some reason, the old man and the others that the young monk visited all shook their heads in confusion. They all said that they didn’t know anything about a so-called dethroned Crown Prince from decades ago.
Of course, after asking so many people, there was bound to be someone that knew about the dethroned Crown Prince. But as for what exactly happened? After 30 years, he had long forgotten about it.
Someone even said, “The current Emperor’s lineage is doing so well, why should we still bother about that dethroned Crown Prince? Since he has been deposed, he must have done something bad. Why do we have to remember him?”
The monk was speechless.
Unable to answer, he could only look for more people to ask from.
But the people in the Imperial Capital really didn’t truly remember the dethroned Crown Prince.
The two Daoist priests, the towering man from the Northern Desert region, all found the same results as the young monk.
The people of the Imperial Capital had completely forgotten about the dethroned Crown Prince, Lin Jiufeng.
After a busy afternoon, the three groups ate in three different restaurants in the evening.
If one looked at their locations from above, one could see that they had coincidentally formed a perfect triangle that surrounded the Imperial Capital.
But despite being this close to each other, they didn’t discover each other’s presence at all.
They were afraid of causing a misunderstanding between them and that Human God Realm expert within the Imperial Capital. Therefore, they chose to restrain their terrifying cultivation base.
The monk ate vegetarian food, the Daoist priests drank tea, while that towering man ate meat in large chunks and drank wine in large cups.
They were all depressed.
The variety of food that they were eating vastly differed from each other, but their feelings were the same—they felt helpless.
“The Imperial Capital is so huge, yet no one even remembers about that dethroned Crown Prince? Isn’t that Crown Prince too low-key?” The monk complained.
“Most people in this Imperial Capital don’t know of any dethroned Crown Prince. They only know about Emperor Ming and Emperor Yuan. Perhaps we need to dig deeper into this piece of history.” The two Daoist priests discussed.
“I don’t know anything about the Imperial Capital, but since I want to investigate what happened decades ago, I can ask the servants in the palace. Some of the servants who were in charge of some duties in the past have already returned to their hometowns to retire…”
“They must know something about it…”
Although this towering man had a boorish appearance, he was meticulous.
He immediately thought of a solution to his conundrum.
The young monk also thought of a solution.
“I can go to the Royal Family’s clan residence and look through their dossiers. Even if that prince was stripped of his position, he should still be recorded within the dossiers of the Royal Family’s clan residence. With that, I’ll know if he’s dead or alive.”
The two Daoist priests went to look for a former prince who was now a lord with his own land and riches.
This former prince fought with Lin Jiufeng for the title of Crown Prince back then and failed.
Then, failed again his struggle with Emperor Yuan for the title of Crown Prince.
After two setbacks, he was disheartened and decided to let go of everything.
He became an idle lord and spent his day walking with the birds and having fun.
He was now living a carefree life.
The two Daoist priests came to visit him at night and revealed their identities.
This caused the idle lord to turn pale with fright as he hurriedly welcomed them.
He was just an idle lord, how could he offend someone from the sacred grounds of Daoism, Mount Longhu?
“Daoist priests… May I know why you are looking for me?” The idle lord asked cautiously.
He hoped that it wasn’t because they wanted to rebel and they needed his help.
He didn’t want to rebel at all.
He was now used to his lifestyle of being an idle and wealthy lord.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
“We’re here to find out more about that dethroned Crown Prince from back then,” Daoist Liu Yun replied.
The idle lord heaved a sigh of relief. Fortunately, his worst fear didn’t come true.
But he was stunned hearing Daoist Liu Yun’s words.
“You want to ask me about my third brother, Lin Jiufeng?”
