80 Years Of Signing-In At The Cold Palace, I Am Unrivalled - Chapter 79
Chapter 79: Found by Accident
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Only one person kept coming to the Cold Palace every month.
Other than when it was time for him to visit, the Cold Palace was usually wrapped in silence.
Similar to the silence felt by a lonely sycamore tree in autumn.
Lin Jiufeng sometimes wondered if he should plant flowers to improve his mood.
Because there was no one else in the Cold Palace, Lin Jiufeng was used to living alone with the white cat. Therefore, he usually wouldn’t go to observe the entrance of the Cold Palace.
Lin Jiufeng knew which day Dachun would come every month.
Dachun would always come at a fixed interval, he wouldn’t disturb him if it wasn’t time.
As a result, Lin Jiufeng and the white cat didn’t notice a little fairy walking in front of the Cold Palace’s entrance today.
Princess Yulin held an old key in her hand.
She looked around and said, “This must be Lord Zhenbei’s abandoned palace. It has been converted into the Cold Palace of the Yuhua God Dynasty.”
“Sure enough, this palace is really dilapidated. It’s a waste simply leaving all of these here to rot without using them.” Princess Yulin couldn’t help but shake her head.
She slowly walked to the door of the Cold Palace and looked at the stone lions that had been ravaged by time. She reached out and wiped them, revealing a layer of dust.
“There are no traces of anyone living here, so why did Grandpa Emperor still keep the key?” Princess Yulin looked at the stone lions in curiosity.
The closed doors of the Cold Palace were covered in dust.
Inside the door was a lock designed by a skilled craftsman.
It could only be opened with a specific key.
Princess Yulin pushed the door, but there was no response.
“This key should be able to open it. I shall go in and take a look.”
Princess Yulin inserted the key.
Ka! Ka! Ka!
The door of the Cold Palace that hadn’t been opened for a long time churned to life.
It actually let out a screeching sound as it was being pushed open.
Princess Yulin frowned and added more force into her pushing.
The main door of the Cold Palace was directly pushed open.
What greeted her eyes wasn’t dirt and grime.
Instead, there existed a neat passageway and a courtyard without weeds.
This was different from what Princess Yulin had imagined.
She looked at this scene suspiciously and remained standing still.
In the Cold Palace, Lin Jiufeng and the white cat woke up from their meditation at the same time. They looked at each other in surprise.
Someone had entered the Cold Palace!
This was something that had never happened in so many years.
Lin Jiufeng remembered that since he was banished to the Cold Palace, only people from the Chasing Corpse Sect had sneaked in twice.
After those two times, the Chasing Corpse Sect turned tail and didn’t dare to come again.
Other than them were Emperor Yuan, Emperor Ming, and the group of four, which was the young monk, the two Daoist priests, and the towering man.
Apart from these individuals, no one else had voluntarily entered the Cold Palace.
Following Emperor Ming’s death, the doors of the Cold Palace had never been opened for more than five years. They had always been tightly shut.
Someone unexpectedly opened the doors of the Cold Palace—and it was strangely a young girl.
Lin Jiufeng scanned with her his Divine Soul and saw her appearance.
She was an exquisite young lady.
She was in her late twenties and her figure radiated nothing but the prime of youth. Her face was covered in the youthfulness of those that were truly young. At this moment, her eyes were filled with curiosity as she observed the Cold Palace.
“Is she someone you know?” The white cat looked at Lin Jiufeng suspiciously.
Lin Jiufeng shook his head and said, “I don’t know her.”
“Then, why did she come here?” The white cat curiously jumped onto the wall and quickly approached. When it saw Princess Yulin, her eyes lit up.
Even cats knew to admire a picturesque scene.
The white cat found it even stranger.
This girl looked either rich or noble, the way she carried herself also made it obvious that she came from an extraordinary family.
So, why did she come to the Cold Palace that everyone avoided at all costs?
The white cat raised her claws.
Her sharp claws then shot out.
She wanted to protect her own territory.
She wouldn’t allow other people of the same gender to casually enter.
As long as this woman stepped into the Cold Palace, she would chase her out.
Princess Yulin looked at the clean Cold Palace and mumbled, “This doesn’t seem like the Cold Palace that people described as a place that can drive anyone into madness. Since Grandpa Emperor left the key behind, it means that he has also been here before…”
“There should be no problem. I’ll go in and take a look.”
Princess Yulin stepped into the Cold Palace.
The white cat called out and was about to attack.
She wanted to defend her territory and chase this woman out.
But in the very next moment, space froze.
The white cat’s body froze on top of the wall, unable to move at all.
“Why did you stop me?” The white cat asked Lin Jiufeng angrily.
She wanted to defend her territory.
Every animal was territorial, it was natural for her to do this.
Lin Jiufeng reached out and carried her down.
He stroked the fuming white cat and said, “You must not hurt her. She’s not an outsider.”
“Not an outsider?” The white cat was confused.
“Didn’t you say that you don’t know her?” The white cat questioned.
Her pair of eyes that seemed to contain all the stars in the sky blinked meaningfully.
Lin Jiufeng looked slightly embarrassed as he said, “She’s one of the two people we discussed yesterday.”
One of the two people we discussed yesterday?
The two children belonged to Lin Jiufeng’s grandchildren generation, and they were also Lin Tianyuan’s son and daughter.
The one who came here today should call Lin Jiufeng ‘Grand-Uncle’.
The white cat was no longer angry. She looked at Lin Jiufeng curiously. “Yesterday, a certain someone swore that he would never come into contact with them. But now, your grandnephew is here. You didn’t expect this, did you?”
Lin Jiufeng remained expressionless and he didn’t speak.
The only way to resolve the awkwardness was to pretend that nothing had happened.
The expressionless Lin Jiufeng looked a little cold.
The white cat angrily knocked her head against Lin Jiufeng’s chest and said indignantly, “You always use this expression on me. I don’t even want to talk to you anymore.”
Lin Jiufeng stroked her gently and replied, “I said that there wouldn’t be any contact, so it’s definitely true. She probably just came in out of curiosity to take a look. After she sees that there is nothing here, she would definitely leave.”
“You don’t plan to meet her?” The white cat was surprised.
“What should we talk about if we met?” Lin Jiufeng countered.
The white cat was speechless.
He didn’t know what to say if they met.
Just as the man and the cat were bickering, Princess Yulin had already closed the doors of the Cold Palace halfway.
Then, she walked along the passageway and passed through the front yard, entering Lin Jiufeng’s resting place.
Which was also the courtyard Lin Jiufeng lived in.
Lin Jiufeng and the white cat looked at each other, dumbfounded.
“The courtyard hasn’t been tidied up yet!” The white cat blurted out.
Lin Jiufeng stepped out and entered the courtyard.
He was about to tidy up the place when Princess Yulin pushed the door open and entered.
Lin Jiufeng directly encountered Princess Yu Lin.
At this moment, the white cat’s breathing came to a halt.
But she discovered that Princess Yulin seemed to not be able to see Lin Jiufeng who was standing in the courtyard. She walked straight in and looked around in surprise.
The white cat heaved a sigh of relief.
If Lin Jiufeng didn’t want to be discovered, he definitely wouldn’t be discovered.
But the courtyard could no longer be tidied up.
Princess Yulin blurted out in surprise. “Is there anyone living here?”
“This bed is so cold.” Princess Yulin sat on the frost jade bed and muttered in amazement.
“I can feel energy surging in my body just by sitting here for a moment. My cultivation base has also been bolstered for quite a lot.” Princess Yulin’s pleasant surprise continued.
“There are so many books here, what are they all about?”
Princess Yulin saw the books that the Holy Maiden gave to Lin Jiufeng.
As she browsed through the books, her expression gradually turned serious, even surprised.
In the end, she even covered her mouth.
“This should be the treasure left behind by Grandpa Emperor. I’ve found it!”
Princess Yulin exclaimed in excitement.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
A brand new world had opened up for her.
Both Lin Jiufeng and the white cat looked at each other for a while.
In the end, they could only reveal bitter smiles.
What should they do with this girl?
