Dachun came to deliver food and wine and told Lin Jiufeng about the major events that happened in the Yuhua God Dynasty this month in front of the Cold Palace.
Lin Jiufeng and the white cat listened quietly behind the door.
Initially, they thought that it was nothing serious.
But as they listened, they were dumbfounded.
“Dachun, what did you just say?” Lin Jiufeng asked in a low voice.
He suspected that he had misheard.
“Your Royal Highness, the unification of the Xianbei tribes in the plains has resulted in the establishment of a new country, the Great Xia Dragon Sparrow.”
“The Emperor of the Great Xia Dragon Sparrow is called Murong Ling. He’s a powerhouse that rose to prominence on the plains and is considered to be very powerful.”
“He also has the support of the Essence Qi Sect. With their help, he unified the plains and he now has a million armed troops under his command. All of them are very fierce.”
“It’s going to be winter soon. The plains are suffering from a snowstorm that hasn’t been seen in a thousand years. It’s very cold. Countless sheep, cows, and even the Xianbei people froze to death.”
“So this Murong Ling gave the order to invade the Yuhua God Dynasty before winter…”
“In the peace talks, Murong Ling is coercing the Yuhua God Dynasty to help them if the latter didn’t want an invasion. He even said that he wanted to marry the princess of the Yuhua God Dynasty to form a good relationship.”
“This is the most major event that happened in the last month…”
Lin Jiufeng frowned.
He recalled the time when he rushed to the plains and killed Martial Sage Tumen on the Celestial Mountain.
All of it was also because Martial Sage Tumen had unified the plains and wanted to invade the Yuhua God Dynasty upon the arrival of winter and heavy snow.
At that time, the court officials of the imperial court were locked in a fierce stalemate.
Each one of them had their own reasoning, and no one could convince the other on what to do.
Emperor Ming had no choice but to come and beg for Lin Jiufeng’s help.
This led to the story of him entering the plains on a snowy night, killing Martial Sage Tumen on the Celestial Mountain, and entering the Life-Knowing stage with one strike.
He thought that this story would be enough to force the Xianbei people to submit
But decades later, the Xianbei tribes were united once again.
Their force was more dangerous, and their ambitions were also greater than before.
They led an army of a million and threatened to invade and plunder the Yuhua God Dynasty.
And they even shamelessly asked to marry Princess Yulin in exchange for peace.
There was only one princess in this generation of the Yuhua God Dynasty—that was Princess Yulin.
Lin Jiufeng had already met her here in the Cold Palace.
He even entered her dreams and gave her pointers for three months while also teaching her the Ultimate Heaven Slashing Sword Skill, making her invincible among the Martial Sages.
It could be said that Princess Yulin was Lin Jiufeng’s successor.
She was related to Lin Jiufeng by blood, and she also practiced Lin Jiufeng’s Ultimate Heaven Slashing Sword Skill.
Lin Jiufeng naturally couldn’t sit still and do nothing.
Lin Jiufeng would never agree to let a girl like her, who was akin to a fairy in the moonlight, marry someone from the plains in such a humiliating manner.
“How did the Yuhua God Dynasty react to this matter?”
Lin Jiufeng’s expression turned slightly cold as he asked.
Dachun sighed. “Most people in the imperial court and even the public are in favor of marrying Princess Yulin off to seek respite from the threat of invasion.”
Lin Jiufeng’s expression turned even colder.
With a cracking sound, he crushed the cup in his hand.
“Your Royal Highness. The Xianbei of the past and the current Great Xia Dragon Sparrow are indeed quite powerful, especially the Essence Qi Sect. I don’t know where they came from, but they have hundreds of Human Gods. They are all acting as a deterrent force at our borders.”
“Once we reject them, the millions of people at our borders will suffer a great catastrophe.”
Dachun explained the conundrum of the imperial court to Lin Jiufeng.
If they chose to fight, it would last throughout the dead of the winter, just like when Emperor Ming fell into trouble back then.
Once the war started, the number of deaths from the war would definitely be inconceivable.
Therefore, when it came to reducing losses, marrying a princess to save the people from war was a logical choice.
But that was just the rational aspect, there was still the emotional aspect to be considered.
“What did Emperor De say?” Lin Jiufeng took a deep breath.
He knew that anger was useless.
The matter wasn’t so simple that it would be over with a casual refusal.
If he wanted to prevent Princess Yulin from marrying over, he had to find another way to deal with the Great Xia Dragon Sparrow.
Moreover, the price of this method was small, at least within the limits of what the Yuhua God Dynasty could withstand.
“Emperor De naturally isn’t agreeable about it, but the court officials are advising him to do it. It has been a long time since Emperor De has appeared publicly, and it is said that he has been cultivating like crazy.” Dachun sighed.
Emperor De was truly cultivating like mad.
He wanted to improve himself to eliminate the Great Xia Dragon Sparrow.
“What a simple-minded kid.” Lin Jiufeng shook his head.
At this moment, Emperor De should be thinking of a solution.
He had to show perseverance and quickly make a decision, instead of hiding and cultivating.
“Emperor De hasn’t said anything yet, that’s why the court officials are arguing with each other. Every day, they ask His Majesty about how to handle this matter.” Dachun shook his head.
“Your Royal Highness, I will continue to observe this matter. If there is any news, I will inform Your Royal Highness on my next visit.”
Seeing that Lin Jiufeng had already finished eating, Dachun packed up and turned to leave.
Lin Jiufeng and the white cat stood solemnly behind the door of the Cold Palace.
The white cat called out and said, “I remember that when I first met you, you went to the plains alone. You can just go there one more time.”
Lin Jiufeng’s gaze was faint. He said in a deep voice, “I can go to the plains and solve this matter, but I want to see what Princess Yulin thinks about this matter.”
In this matter, the only key person was Princess Yulin.
She was the one being sacrificed, so Lin Jiufeng wanted to see her.
Speak of the devil.
Princess Yulin slowly walked over and appeared outside the Cold Palace. She looked a little lonely as she took out a key and opened the gates of the Cold Palace.
Then, she walked past Lin Jiufeng and the white cat before entering the courtyard.
Lin Jiufeng and the white cat once again became invisible, Princess Yulin couldn’t see them at all.
“She’s not in a good mood,” the white cat said.
“It would be a miracle if she’s in a good mood,” Lin Jiufeng muttered.
Lin Jiufeng brought the white cat into the courtyard.
He then heard Princess Yulin’s aggrieved voice.
“Grandpa Emperor, the imperial court is forcing me to marry that Murong Ling.”
“They say if I don’t marry him, I will be abandoning the millions of common people at the borders. They will be wiped out by the invasion of the Xianbei army.”
“This crime is too big for me to bear.”
Princess Yulin’s voice was soft and weak.
She felt wronged, but she didn’t dare to say it out loud.
Should she tell her Mother?
Her mother had always been busy dealing with the state affairs.
She couldn’t possibly add to her stress and worries.
Should she tell her Brother Emperor?
Her Brother Emperor would directly disagree.
But the consequence of disagreeing was that the common people at the borders would be implicated.
There seemed to be only one path in front of her.
The marriage alliance!
Princess Yulin felt so wronged that she could only come here and pretend to talk to Grandpa Emperor.
She hid in a corner all alone and hugged her own knees, feeling aggrieved.
Seeing this scene, Lin Jiufeng’s eyes flashed.
He said softly, “What’s your own opinion?”
“Mysterious master!” Princess Yulin looked around in surprise.
She remembered Lin Jiufeng’s voice. She had heard it in her dream for three whole months.
She looked left and right, but she didn’t find anyone.
She only thought that the mysterious master’s body no longer existed and that he only had his spirit left in this world.
“If there’s no other choice, I will naturally marry him,” Princess Yulin replied.
She was a princess and was born in the royal family.
Naturally, she had a lot of responsibilities to bear.
Although she felt wronged, she had to consider the safety of the millions of common people.
“What about the Zenith Heaven Path Sect that you told me about?”
Lin Jiufeng continued to ask.
“They said that they are no match for the Essence Qi Sect that’s backing the Great Xia Dragon Sparrow. They can protect the Imperial Capital, but they are unable to solve this problem,” Princess Yulin said calmly.
Ever since Emperor De found out about the truth of the Zenith Heaven Path Sect, they gradually became distant from each other. The Zenith Heaven Path Sect also wasn’t foolish enough to become enemies with the Essence Qi Sect just to please Emperor De.
“What do you think I should do?” Princess Yulin asked Lin Jiufeng for help.
“Go to the plains,” Lin Jiufeng said.
“Ah…” Princess Yulin blinked. Was this the only choice left?
“Go to the plains yourself and carve out a path of blood. Cut off the head of this so-called Great Xia Dragon Sparrow.”
“Since they are coveting your beauty, then you should go there personally,” Lin Jiufeng said calmly.
But his eyes were cold.
“I can’t…”Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Princess Yulin shook her head. She wanted to, but she was only at the Martial Sage Realm.
She could do it with her current strength before the recovery of the world’s spiritual energy.
But now, with so many Martial Sages in the world and the existence of Human Gods slowly becoming so widespread, this feat was impossible for her to fulfill all alone.
“There’s a sword case in the house. Bring it with you to the plains and focus on killing the enemy. Leave the rest to me,” Lin Jiufeng said coldly.
