80 Years Of Signing-In At The Cold Palace, I Am Unrivalled - Chapter 69
Chapter 69: Raising the Sword to Kill
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The outside world was turbulent, but Lin Jiufeng who sat alone in the Cold Palace remained at peace. He continued to silently do his routine.
Lin Jiufeng was holding the Divine Grade Grotto-heaven that he received from signing in.
“Is the Divine Grade the topmost grade?” Lin Jiufeng mumbled.
But no one could answer him.
Lin Jiufeng didn’t mind.
After all, since he obtained it from signing in, it was definitely something very precious.
Lin Jiufeng looked forward to it.
He said to the white cat.
“I’m going into seclusion to make a breakthrough. Don’t disturb me if there’s nothing important.”
The white cat looked at Lin Jiufeng in shock.
It meowed and it wanted to write a question for Lin Jiufeng.
But in the very next moment, it remembered that it had already consumed the Spirit Accumulation Pill given to it by Lin Jiufeng. With the help of that pill, it broke through into the Human God Realm.
“What realm are you going to break into?”
The white cat’s voice was gentle and mellow.
“I want to climb over this great mountain known as the Human God Realm and see how beautiful the world beyond this mountain is,” Lin Jiufeng replied.
The white cat looked at Lin Jiufeng as if it was looking at a monster.
“We’ve just entered the Human God Realm and you’re about to enter the next realm…”
The white cat looked at Lin Jiufeng enviously.
If Lin Jiufeng broke through so quickly, wouldn’t its dream of defeating Lin Jiufeng and stepping on him with its paws become a pipe dream?
Lin Jiufeng smiled.
He walked into the courtyard and laid on the frost jade bed.
“Stand guard for me,” Lin Jiufeng said to the white cat.
Then, he closed his eyes and entered a deep state of cultivation.
That Divine Grade Grotto-heaven also entered his body.
In the very next moment, a large amount of energy burst out from Lin Jiufeng’s body.
The white cat was so frightened that it hurriedly retreated.
Its claws stabbed the ground as it tried its best to prevent itself from flying.
“I didn’t agree to stand guard for you…”
The white cat mumbled. Its voice was soft and weak, like a complaining little girl.
But despite its complaints, it still laid on the wall of the courtyard and stood guard for Lin Jiufeng.
And it did the same routine, day after day!
A month after Lin Jiufeng went into seclusion, the Yuhua God Dynasty was thrown into chaos.
Forbidden City, Great Council Hall.
The frail Lin Tianyuan sat on the throne, his face was deathly pale.
It has been days since he had a good night’s sleep.
There were too many strange things happening lately that he couldn’t sleep at all.
In the Great Council Hall, the court officials looked exhausted.
It was the same for them, they also couldn’t sleep properly.
“Your Majesty, these demons from the demonic sects are indiscriminate in their wanton killings of the common people. Our people are suffering and many of them are dying.” A court official reported.
“Your Majesty, the day before yesterday, a ruin appeared in Luoyang. It is the ruin closest to the Imperial Capital. More than ten demonic cultivators rushed out from the inside and killed the common people around them…”
“They are currently rushing towards the Imperial Capital.” Another cabinet court official reported.
“Your Majesty, these demons from the demonic sects are simply too much! They must be punished,” the impartial assistant minister of the Ministry of Appointments shouted.
Lin Tianyuan listened to the reports of his subordinates.
He felt a headache coming. “Dear ministers, I have already sent the Martial Sage Corps and two Human Gods out. I hope that they will be enough to stop them.”
3,000 Martial Sages with two Human Gods as their commanders.
Sadly, despite their numbers. They were still incapable of dealing with all the issues.
“Reporting to Your Majesty! The Great Yan Dynasty has led an army of 200,000 soldiers and 30 Human Gods into our borders. They have already passed through the Qinling Mountain Range and are heading straight for the Imperial Capital.” A scout barged in and reported loudly.
The Great Council Hall fell into silence.
Everyone was dumbfounded by the sudden news.
“Why is the Great Yan Dynasty attacking our Imperial Capital? Although we are hostile to each other, we have never interfered with each other’s affairs in the past few years.”
The Cabinet Chief questioned loudly.
The way he spoke revealed how he was panicking inside.
Internal strife and external trouble.
The scout replied loudly, “I heard that it’s because of the dethroned Crown Prince. The Great Yan Dynasty made a slogan, ‘save the dethroned Crown Prince, let the Yuhua God Dynasty release the dethroned Crown Prince.”
“Dethroned Crown Prince? What dethroned Crown Prince?”
The court officials looked at each other.
They had long forgotten about Lin Jiufeng’s existence.
Instead, Lin Tianyuan’s expression turned solemn.
Wasn’t the dethroned Crown Prince his Uncle, Lin Jiufeng?
His Uncle, Lin Jiufeng was his greatest trump card.
How could he hand him over to the Great Yan Dynasty?
“It’s just a small dynasty that wants to take advantage of the situation. There’s no need to worry about it.” Lin Tianyuan gritted his teeth and announced.
Another scout ran over and said loudly, “Reporting to Your Majesty! The Martial Sage Corps and the two Human Gods leading them were wiped out. They were completely devoured by the demons outside the Imperial Capital…”
“They are now on their journey for the Imperial Capital. They could arrive at any moment!”
“What did you say?” Lin Tianyuan stood up in surprise.
He suddenly felt dizzy…
His body went soft, and he fell straight onto the ground.
The Martial Sage Corps that he had painstakingly nurtured from the ground up was wiped out?
How could this be?
The court officials panicked.
They hurriedly went to support Lin Tianyuan.
“Your Majesty, you must pull yourself together.” the Cabinet Chief advised.
“All of you, move aside!”
“At this critical moment, I want to be alone…”
“Cabinet Chief, I now give you full authority to handle the matters of the Imperial Capital. I’m going to see someone.”
Lin Tianyuan stumbled as he got up. He wanted to go and find his Uncle.
At every moment of peril, the person Lin Tianyuan thought of was still his Uncle—Lin Jiufeng.
Lin Jiufeng’s whole existence gave Lin Tianyuan unlimited confidence.
“Uncle will definitely be able to handle these troubles!” Lin Tianyuan was confident.
He rejected the company of others and endured his exhaustion alone as he left the Forbidden City. The world was shrouded in darkness.
It was clearly daytime, but it was so dark that it was no different from nighttime.
The thick demonic aura scared the millions of people in the Imperial Capital.
It scared them so much that they didn’t even dare to breathe.
The Imperial Capital of the Yuhua God Dynasty was surrounded by black smoke. No one inside could see what was happening outside.
Demons truly were at their strongest in the dark as they continued to wreak havoc.
The Imperial Capital and the entire Yuhua God Dynasty were now in their darkest moments.
The Great Yan Dynasty army hadn’t even arrived yet.
If the Great Yan Dynasty was added into the tally, the Yuhua God Dynasty would truly be powerless to turn the situation around in their favor.
The current events were both similar and different from that battle at the peak of the Forbidden City many decades ago.
Lin Tianyuan gnashed his teeth.
Enduring the weakness spreading all over his body, he came to the entrance of the Cold Palace.
“Uncle! Please save the millions of innocent civilians in the Imperial Capital!”
Lin Tianyuan knelt down and shouted.
The white cat came. It stood on the wall and said softly, “Your uncle is in seclusion.”
Lin Tianyuan was dumbfounded.
At such a critical moment, his uncle was actually in seclusion.
“I’ve already come out of seclusion. Let him in.” Lin Jiufeng’s voice suddenly rang out.
His voice immediately lifted Lin Tianyuan’s spirits.
He stumbled to the front of the courtyard and quickly explained everything to Lin Jiufeng.
“Uncle, demons are wreaking havoc outside. There’s also the Holy Maiden of the Great Yan Dynasty who’s adding to our troubles. She’s saying that she wants to save you and she wants me to release the dethroned Crown Prince…”
“Uncle, my Martial Sage Corps has been completely wiped out…”
“They are too powerful, I can’t resist them.” Lin Tianyuan cried.
Lin Jiufeng opened the door to the courtyard and looked at the demonic aura billowing up in the sky. It had blocked everything including sunlight, plunging the Imperial Capital into complete darkness.
“Do I need her to rescue me?”
Lin Jiufeng chuckled and walked out.
“Uncle, the demons have already surrounded the Imperial Capital…”
“I have no idea why they are here,” Lin Tianyuan said in fear.
“There’s no need to worry. After tonight, the whole world shall lose their voice upon hearing about me. They are just mere demons, nothing worth mentioning,” Lin Jiufeng patted Lin Tianyuan’s shoulder and said calmly.
“Uncle, are you planning to fight against so many demons alone?”
Lin Tianyuan swallowed his saliva and asked.
“Do you think that those ants are difficult to deal with?” Lin Jiufeng answered with a question of his own.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
If there was a group of demons dancing about in the sky, Lin Jiufeng would fly up into the sky to kill them.
If there were demons causing trouble in the outside world, then he would go outside to eliminate them.
Life truly was fascinating and unpredictable.
Lin Jiufeng was no longer the same Lin Jiufeng from a month ago.
