The young monk knelt on the ground, drenched in sweat.
Beads of sweat constantly dripped down from his forehead.
He looked around in shock.
The spiritual energy in the air had been ignited by something. It affected the cherry tree and forced it to blossom instantly. Resplendent and beautiful cherry blossoms fluttered in the air.
Then, the world shook as a stream of True Qi transformed into a terrifying ancient rune that came crashing down.
The four Human Gods couldn’t resist at all.
They directly knelt in front of the courtyard.
They didn’t even manage to enter the lone courtyard.
“What… What is this?” The young monk was filled with indescribable shock.
The two Daoist priests looked at each other and saw the horror in each other’s eyes. The sensation was akin to that of a horror that engraved itself onto one’s bones and onto one’s heart. Both of them instantly saw through each other’s thoughts.
“True Qi Immortal Treasury!” Liu Yun gnashed his teeth as he endured the boundless pressure.
But despite all of that, his voice sounded hoarse as it was forced out from his throat.
As a Daoist, he naturally recognized the origins of that ancient rune.
Only Human Gods that had broken through to the second stage—the Immortal Treasury stage could possibly form this ancient rune.
“There’s actually someone here who has unlocked their True Qi Immortal Treasury. How incredible. He can now make a breakthrough into the next stage.” Liu Yun gulped in fear.
He realized that he had offended an extremely terrifying expert by invading the Cold Palace.
“The True Qi Immortal Treasury? When unlocked, a cultivator’s True Qi will now depict the resplendent ancient runes beyond the door of his True Qi. That’s terrifying. The expert who suppressed us is someone that is at the Immortal Treasury stage at the least!”
Junior Brother Haiyu added. Similar to Liu Yun, he was trembling in fear.
When the young monk heard his words, his expression changed.
“That Human God of the Yuhua God Dynasty is actually living in seclusion in the Cold Palace?”
The young monk realized in horror. A bitter smile spread on his lips.
He truly had knocked against a metal plate this time.
The veins on the towering man’s body bulged.
He struggled with all his might, but it was to no avail. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t break free from the suppression of the ancient True Qi runes.
“Senior, please spare my life.”
The towering man knew that he couldn’t do anything about the situation.
He directly laid on the ground and didn’t resist anymore, then he shouted.
He begged for mercy.
The young monk and the Daoist priests did the same.
They knelt on the ground and begged for mercy.
Being suppressed by ancient True Qi runes might be painful, but it was nothing compared to their lives. Thus, they started begging. Asking for mercy might save their lives.
In the courtyard, on the frost jade bed, Lin Jiufeng didn’t care about the four Human Gods outside.
Within the lone courtyard, Lin Jiufeng didn’t care about the four Human Gods outside.
They were being suppressed by a single wisp of his True Qi.
Obviously, these four were newly-minted Human God Realm cultivators.
If this happened ten years ago, Lin Jiufeng would’ve been worried. But now, a flick of his finger was enough to suppress them all.
He looked at the white cat.
“Now, do you understand that I’m not just bragging about what I usually tell you?” Lin Jiufeng raised his brows.
The white cat was speechless. It was both envious and furious.
Envious of Lin Jiufeng’s formidable strength.
Furious at Lin Jiufeng for bullying it again.
But the problem was that it couldn’t refute him at all.
“Let’s go out and find out why these Human Gods are here.” Lin Jiufeng reached out and brought the white cat into his arms. Then, he started stroking it gently.
He was stroking the white cat!
The white cat was a proud cat. It usually wouldn’t let Lin Jiufeng hold it so casually like this.
But its guess was wrong this time. Unable to refute Lin Jiufeng’s words, it had no other choice but to allow Lin Jiufeng to do whatever he wanted to.
Lin Jiufeng—who was carrying the white cat—walked out of the lone courtyard’s door.
Lin Jiufeng was dressed in a long white suit with patterns carved on its surface which accentuated his slender figure.
He walked out of the courtyard.
Outside the courtyard, four people were lying on the ground.
A young monk.
A man with a towering physique.
And two Daoist priests.
They were all at the Human God Realm.
All four of them had just recently reached the Human God Realm.
Lin Jiufeng walked out with steady footsteps.
Seeing them kneeling on the ground and begging for mercy, he waved his hand casually.
The ancient True Qi rune suppressing them slowly dissipated.
The boundless pressure disappeared.
The few of them heaved a sigh of relief and gasped for breath.
They hurriedly lifted their heads and looked at Lin Jiufeng.
“Senior, your look great.” Liu Yun praised when he saw Lin Jiufeng looking like an Immortal that had descended onto the mortal realm.
“Senior, we didn’t mean to offend you. We really didn’t know that you were living in seclusion here. Please pardon us if we have offended you in any way.” The young monk ignored his own sweat and hurriedly explained.
The towering man’s body was more than two meters tall.
His dark exterior made him look very domineering.
But at this moment, he was like a child who had done something bad.
He stood obediently at the side and looked at Lin Jiufeng, aggrieved.
“Senior, I was wrong.”
Lin Jiufeng looked at them and said calmly, “If apologizing is useful, what use is our True Qi?”
The faces of the four stiffened.
They became nervous, thinking that Lin Jiufeng was going to attack them.
But Lin Jiufeng didn’t make a move.
He only sized up the four of them and asked, “You guys are in the same group?”
“I’m a loner.”
The four of them shook their heads in unison and decisively distanced themselves from each other. They didn’t want to be seen as working together.
Lin Jiufeng looked at them. The young monk was alone, the towering man was alone, and the two Daoist priests were together.
Despite having intruded into the Cold Palace at the same time, they were on guard against each other.
It was an interesting sight for Lin Jiufeng.
He couldn’t help but laugh. “If you guys aren’t in the same group, then why did you all came here on the same day and time?”
“It’s a coincidence!” The monk said, embarrassed.
“Fate.” The two Daoist priests smiled awkwardly.
“I don’t know why they are here, but I have my own motives,” The iron-tower-like man said.
“Oh, then tell me, what is your motive?”
Lin Jiufeng stroked the white cat as he curiously asked.
He still didn’t know what exactly could make these Human Gods come at the same time on the same day to this Cold Palace.
The young monk and the Daoist priest also looked curiously at the towering man.
They also wanted to know.
“I’m here to find someone,” The towering man said.
“Find someone?” Lin Jiufeng raised his brows and looked at him in surprise.
“There’s no other person in this Cold Palace, yet you are here to look for someone?” Lin Jiufeng asked curiously.
“I’m here to look for the dethroned Crown Prince,” The towering man was honest. “I heard that the dethroned Crown Prince was imprisoned here 30 years ago. I came here to investigate his whereabouts.”
“Find the dethroned Crown Prince…” Lin Jiufeng’s eyes darkened.
He wanted to ask more, but at this moment, the young monk said, “Well… I’m also here to look for someone.”
Lin Jiufeng looked at him and frowned. “You’re also looking for the dethroned Crown Prince?”
The young monk nodded.
Lin Jiufeng immediately looked at the two Daoist priests and asked, “Are you two also here to look for the dethroned Crown Prince?”
Liu Yun and the Haiyu brothers hurriedly nodded.
Lin Jiufeng smiled.
His smile seemed to be that of joy.
“The dethroned Crown Prince was imprisoned 30 years ago, and no outsider has ever come to look for him. You guys came together tonight and said that you weren’t in the same group, but all of you were looking for him.
The four of them awkwardly looked at each other.
In such a situation, it didn’t seem to make sense to say that they weren’t on the same side.
“Why look for the dethroned Crown Prince?” Lin Jiufeng asked solemnly.
Someone was looking for him.
That person even got four Human Gods to come here just to look for him.
He had to take this matter seriously.
“I’m under someone else’s command!”
“I’m following orders!”
“Someone wanted me to do it.”
Three different answers, but they meant the same.
Someone had ordered them to come here.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Lin Jiufeng’s face turned slightly cold.
He stared at them and asked, “Who told you lot to come here?”
The four of them answered in unison. “Miss Hong!”
Lin Jiufeng frowned. Who was this Miss Hong?
