From the moment he appeared in the camp until the end of the negotiation, the entire process only took less than three minutes.
The white cat looked at Lin Jiufeng, dumbfounded.
“The two of you came to an agreement so easily?”
The delicate and vengeful white cat expressed its confusion.
“Of course, her true intention isn’t really just to repay her debt of gratitude to me. Otherwise, she could’ve done it during the first few years after I was banished to the Cold Palace.”
“But she didn’t…”
“She only remembered my existence and the debt of gratitude that she owes me when she found out that her Divine Soul was incomplete.”
“Her repayment was, in essence, a way to solve her own problem. It’s not a way for her to express her gratitude to me, sincerely. ”
“She’s a very selfish person. I can’t be bothered to get angry at her because it’s simply not worth it.”
“After this, her problem will be solved and I’ll have even more information about the previous era. My connection with her will also come to an end.”
“Isn’t this a win-win situation?”
Lin Jiufeng rubbed the white cat and explained.
“How can you remain so calm? You’ve discovered that the other party has other intentions for repaying her debt of gratitude, but you are not angry at all. Instead, you managed to maintain your rationality to the point that you even gained benefits for yourself.”
The white cat was seriously impressed.
“That is why you have to be careful. I might abandon you and remain calm about it in the future.”
Lin Jiufeng teased.
The white cat scratched Lin Jiufeng’s shoulder in anger.
Of course, he remained unscathed.
Instead, it was the white cat whose claws felt pained.
The angry white cat proceeded to turn her head and ignore Lin Jiufeng.
Lin Jiufeng looked at her charmingly naive appearance.
He couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
Lin Jiufeng’s mood turned for the better.
As expected, the happiness of keeping a cat was something that cat-less people just couldn’t understand.
Lin Jiufeng quickly returned to the Imperial Capital.
At this moment, the Imperial Capital was already under curfew.
There was no one walking around on the streets.
Lin Jiufeng walked to the door of the Cold Palace with the white cat.
He was about to enter when suddenly…
In the Forbidden City, a bell rang nine times in a row.
Lin Jiufeng’s eyes narrowed as he slowly turned his head to look in the direction of the Empress’ Palace.
More than ten years ago, Lin Jiufeng once heard the toll of this bell.
It announced Emperor Yuan’s death.
Now that the bell had sounded once again, what did it represent?
Lin Jiufeng’s heart trembled.
Although he was a very rational person and could calm throughout any situation.
He also still had his own feelings.
Did Lin Tianyuan, the child whom he watched grow up, died?
The white cat looked over in shock.
She jumped off Lin Jiufeng’s body and said, “You should go take and take a look.”
Lin Jiufeng’s body flashed. He disappeared in an instant.
Forbidden City, Empress’ Palace…
At this moment, everyone was sobbing and wailing.
Originally, the entire Imperial Capital was cheering after Lin Jiufeng exterminated the demons.
But no one expected that when Lin Tianyuan returned to the Imperial Capital, he would be drenched in sweat.
He returned in a state so weak that he couldn’t even speak.
The eunuchs discovered him and they were about to send him to the imperial physicians to treat.
But Lin Tianyuan rejected it.
He was then carried to the Empress’ residence.
Afterwards, he summoned the court officials and the Crown Prince to pass on the throne to him.
At the end of his life, he asked the Empress to come close and he whispered in her ear.
“Don’t tell the Crown Prince about Uncle…”
“Let him feel pressured, so he can grow up on his own.”
“Treat this matter as your greatest trump card and it will protect you well. I wrote a letter to Uncle. After I die, Uncle will definitely come to send me off. Pass the letter to Uncle by then.”
Lin Tianyuan used all that he had left to say these last words before passing away.
In his life, he hated arranged marriages the most.
He married a wife whom he didn’t like.
He once wanted to abolish the Empress for a concubine.
But now, the place he chose to die at was in the Empress’ bed.
He chose to pass away with her on his side.
Lin Tianyuan was a very complicated individual.
In the end, he had probably fallen in love with the Empress.
Thus, he left his greatest trump card to her.
He didn’t pass it on to the Crown Prince because he didn’t want to see the Crown Prince become as conceited as he was back then.
He didn’t want the latter to think that just because he had a powerful trump card—he had the right to become arrogant.
When Lin Jiufeng arrived, everyone was wailing non-stop.
Especially the Cabinet Chief…
Counting this next generation, he has continuously served the imperial court for four generations.
Three emperors had already passed away, but he was still here.
And he would also be assisting the Crown Prince, the soon-to-be emperor.
Lin Jiufeng looked at the silent corpse in the Empress’ Palace.
There was definitely sadness in his heart, but it wasn’t to that extent he had felt when Emperor Yuan died.
“I told you to rest well.” Lin Jiufeng came to Lin Tianyuan’s corpse and sighed.
Last month, Lin Tianyuan insisted on dealing with state affairs.
It was also during that month that he depleted the rest of his life force.
To Lin Jiufeng, the servants running around didn’t affect him at all.
They couldn’t discover Lin Jiufeng, and Lin Jiufeng didn’t want to be discovered by them either.
After paying his respects to Lin Tianyuan, Lin Jiufeng found the Empress.
Now, only the Empress knew his true appearance throughout the entire Yuhua God Dynasty.
Hence, Lin Jiufeng sent a voice transmission to her and told her to come to the side hall without alerting the others.
“Uncle!” In the side hall, the Empress bowed with teary eyes.
“When Emperor Ming passed away, did he leave any last words?” Lin Jiufeng asked.
“He wrote this letter to Uncle.”
The Empress respectfully took out the letter and handed it to Lin Jiufeng.
Lin Jiufeng opened it.
There were some heartfelt words in the letter, as well as a request for Lin Jiufeng to take care of the Queen and the Crown Prince.
An orphan and a widow.
In this world, ruling a huge dynasty would definitely pose many problems for them.
This was why Emperor Ming, Lin Tianyuan, beseeched Lin Jiufeng to help them.
“If there’s any problem in the future, come to the Cold Palace and look for me. Also, teach the Crown Prince well. Don’t feel too burdened. I will still be supporting you both from behind,” Lin Jiufeng said solemnly.
“Thank you, Uncle,” The Empress gratefully said.
She was about to kneel down when Lin Jiufeng’s figure blurred and disappeared.
Seeing this, she stopped what she was doing and went ahead to deal with Lin Tianyuan’s funeral.
Lin Jiufeng returned to the Cold Palace, his expression looked somewhat somber.
He looked at the cherry tree where the flowers had wilted.
Then, he personally planted another cherry tree at the side.
Afterwards, the sad Lin Jiufeng directly went to the underground palace and opened up the seal of the demon’s den beneath the copper coffin.
“Why is it still you?”
The demons in the demon’s den were expecting someone of their own kind to open up the seal for them to escape. But when they saw Lin Jiufeng, all of them had a nervous breakdown, they couldn’t believe their eyes.
The demons had even surrounded the Imperial Capital, but Lin Jiufeng was still alive?
What kind of existence was this Lin Jiufeng? Was he an Immortal?
Lin Jiufeng’s face turned slightly cold.
For the first time since he first entered the demon’s den, he felt infuriated. With the Demon Slaying Sword in hand, he pointed at the group of demons and said, “It was you lot who caused the demons outside to come into being and besiege the Imperial Capital, right?”
The demons were shocked and angered by Lin Jiufeng’s action of pointing at them with a sword.
“What are you trying to do?” Skyfiend shouted angrily.
He was in a bad mood right now.
Why did the scheme that he had meticulously planned, fail?
“I want to kill you!”
But Lin Jiufeng’s mood was even worse.
He didn’t want to talk nonsense at all.
He lifted the Demon Slaying Sword and moved to kill.
The Demon Slaying Sword paired with Lin Jiufeng’s strength and his Divine Grade Grotto-heaven allowed Lin Jiufeng to easily kill Skyfiend.
One of the founders of this demon’s den, Skyfiend, whose cultivation base was unfathomable in the previous era, died under the Demon Slaying Sword.
The other demons trembled upon seeing this scene.
After killing Skyfiend, Lin Jiufeng vented the anger in his heart and left the demon’s den.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
“Sign in,” Lin Jiufeng said.
[Sign-In successful. Received one Grotto-Heaven Analysis Book!]
Lin Jiufeng received the book and realized that it was an analysis of how to cultivate in the Grotto-Heaven Realm and how to improve his cultivation within the realm.
“Not bad, it suits me very well.” Lin Jiufeng sealed the demon’s den and left.
