80 Years Of Signing-In At The Cold Palace, I Am Unrivalled - Chapter 91
Chapter 91: Five Years Later
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
After returning to the Cold Palace, Lin Jiufeng’s life became comfortable once again.
Everyone in the world praised Princess Yulin.
They proclaimed her as the number one talent in recorded history.
A 16-year-old Human God.
The 16-year-old princess of the Yuhua God Dynasty.
The future guardian of the Yuhua God Dynasty.
All the good words and praises in the world were plastered onto Princess Yulin.
Every move that she made now made people wonder what exactly her intentions were.
No one knew about Lin Jiufeng.
But Lin Jiufeng was happy about this arrangement.
Today, he went to the demon’s den early in the morning and started his routine.
After defeating the charging demon with one move, Lin Jiufeng ignored the resentment of the demons below and began to sign in.
[Sign-In successful. Received one Grotto-Heaven Great Pill!]
Lin Jiufeng immediately checked the pill’s attributes.
[Grotto-heaven Great Pill: A pill used to continuously increase the potential of one’s Grotto-heaven to aid in its expansion. Its increase depends on the Host’s overall potential.]
Lin Jiufeng muttered in shock. “This sure is a pleasant surprise. I was just troubled that my Grotto-heaven hasn’t been expanding lately, and it seems to have reached a bottleneck. I didn’t expect to receive such a pill from signing in this time. What a coincidence.”
With the help of the pill, Lin Jiufeng could continue his steady improvement once again.
After coming out of the underground palace, Lin Jiufeng walked into his room.
He held the Grotto-Heaven Great Pill in his hand as his mind spun.
“I’ve been in the Grotto-Heaven Realm for a long time now. Will this pill help me in making a breakthrough?”
Lin Jiufeng entered this realm five years ago.
The Grotto-Heaven Realm had ten levels, which meant that the Grotto-heaven had to be expanded ten times.
Ordinary people would form 10 grotto-heavens, but Lin Jiufeng chose to expand his existing Divine Grade Grotto-heaven by 10 times instead of forming 10 grotto-heavens.
These were two completely different choices, but there was no doubt that the latter gave a better potential and greater increase in might.
‘Twenty to thirty years have passed since that rain. The Holy Maiden has undoubtedly failed in her work in these past few years.’ Lin Jiufeng suddenly remembered the Holy Maiden.
The people of the Heavenly Dao Sect wanted to suppress the people from the previous era to prevent them from prematurely corrupting the brand new era.
But there was no doubt that the Holy Maiden, Miss Hong had failed.
The Zenith Heaven Path Sect was from the previous era.
The Essence Qi Sect of the Plains was also from the previous era.
The appearance of these two major sects was enough evidence to say that Miss Hong had failed.
One had to know that Lin Jiufeng’s source of information was very limited.
He seldom left the Cold Palace to venture out.
He was just quietly accumulating his strength in the Cold Palace and he had done all of this ever since he arrived in this world.
Even so, he knew that two major sects from the previous era had already appeared in this world. Considering this fact, Lin Jiufeng started to wonder about just how many of those from the previous era had already appeared in the outside world.
Moreover, just exactly how many of them were still in hiding until now?
At the end of the day, the brand new era had just started.
Only 20 to 30 years have passed since that rain.
The children from back then had just become adults and they were mere greenhorns of the martial path.
As for the older generations, many of them managed to make a breakthrough into the Martial Sage Realm and even the Human God Realm.
However, only a handful of them managed to enter the Grotto-Heaven Realm.
Lin Jiufeng had never even heard of anyone who was at the Grotto-Heaven Realm.
But this was probably because he was usually ignorant of the outside world. It was understandable, however, for he spent most of his days in the confines of this cold palace.
But Lin Jiufeng’s Divine Soul followed Princess Yulin to the Plains once, and he witnessed that the Emperor of the Great Xia Dragon Sparrow was only at the peak of the Human God Realm.
In that Essence Qi Sect, there was only a single peak Human God Realm expert.
No one among them was in the Grotto-Heaven Realm.
“As time slowly passes, those people will naturally resurface. Those who have surpassed the Grotto-Heaven Realm back then are all hidden beneath the surface of this turbid water, they truly are unfathomable. I still have to work hard to further improve myself.”
Lin Jiufeng reminded himself.
Even though he now had a little bit of strength and seemed invincible on the surface of the turbid water that was also known as the martial path—that was because the monsters underwater were still hidden in its depths.
Lin Jiufeng emptied his mind and decided to continue to live in seclusion.
He wanted to see how the outside world would change in the coming years.
He consumed the Grotto-Heaven Great Pill, closed his eyes, and began to expand his Divine Grade Grotto-heaven.
The outside world was in a flurry of discussion about Princess Yulin.
Countless people sought an audience with Princess Yulin.
Because of this, she could only hide in the palace and accompany her mother.
Of course, with Princess Yulin’s personality.
This caused her nothing but endless vexation. She wanted to go out, but she couldn’t.
There were just too many people that wanted to meet her.
In Empress Dowager’s palace, Princess Yulin chatted with her mother.
The Empress Dowager asked Princess Yulin. “How did you learn all these skills?”
Princess Yulin only replied, “I have a Master who taught me these skills.”
“What kind of person is your Master? Can you invite him to the Yuhua God Dynasty to be a royal consecrator? There won’t be any pressure on him, he just has to help the Yuhua God Dynasty in times of crisis.” The Empress Dowager asked with concern.
Although she held the biggest trump card of the Yuhua God Dynasty, it was the trump card that Emperor Ming—Lin Tianyuan—had left for her.
She couldn’t rely on this trump card for everything.
She needed her own forces to solve her problems.
Princess Yulin thought for a while, then she shook her head and replied, “It’s impossible. My master is indifferent to worldly affairs, so there is no way he will agree.”
“In that case, you must build a good relationship with your Master. If the God Dynasty is in danger in the future, you will have the confidence to deal with it,” The Empress Dowager said regrettably.
Princess Yulin smiled bitterly.
Facing the concern of the Empress Dowager, she could only agree.
But in reality, it was no longer convenient for her to go to the Cold Palace.
Her Master obviously didn’t want to be disturbed.
If she was disobedient, she risked angering her Master.
Hence, she chose to spend her time comprehending the two sword techniques that her Master had imparted to her instead of going anywhere else.
Ultimate Heaven Slashing Sword Skill!
Death Bone Sword Technique!
“The next time we meet, I will make Master look at me in a different light.”
Princess Yulin decided in her heart.
Time was constantly moving and the times were constantly changing.
Any topic would soon dissipate in popularity as time went on.
The common people of the world lived a busy and anxious life for the sake of a few taels of silver.
Regarding Princess Yulin’s matter, they had discussed it, felt proud of it, and gossiped about it before throwing it into the back of their minds.
She was a princess.
No matter how much they talked about her, they wouldn’t gain anything from it.
They still had to live their own lives.
The days went on, and after about ten days, the common people weren’t talking too much about it anymore.
One month later, this matter wasn’t even mentioned that often anymore.
Half a year later, if one didn’t deliberately think about this matter, no one would even remember it.
Princess Yulin’s presence had also gone thin as she stayed in seclusion, trying her best to comprehend the two sword techniques.
The world was calm—especially now that the Great Xia Dragon Sparrow no longer had the power to invade the borders of the Yuhua God Dynasty.
Despite the turbulent undercurrents, the surface of the world remained peaceful.
And so, another five years passed.
In the past five years, Lin Jiufeng never once left the Cold Palace.
Princess Yulin didn’t come to the Cold Palace either.
In fact, she didn’t even leave her place.
She was completely focused on her cultivation.
However, the Yuhua God Dynasty hadn’t been peaceful in the past five years.
There were some rebellions and uprisings, some cultivators harmed the common people, and some demonic sects launched their own attacks.
Especially the demonic sects.
They were extremely terrifying as they swept over the lands this time.
After these five years, Emperor De was finally the one handling the state affairs instead of the Empress Dowager.
His thoughts had matured quite a lot.
He was no longer the same as he was when he was 18 years old.
He was no longer focused solely on cultivation.
He took over the state affairs from the Empress Dowager and began to deal with them carefully.
But he didn’t give up on cultivating either.
After five years, the Empress Dowager stayed behind the scenes.
She only gave pointers to Empress Dowager behind his back.
She didn’t compete with him for power.
If she refused to give her only son his deserved power and continued to control the court with her status as the Empress Dowager, wouldn’t the people call her a greedy wretch then?
The Empress Dowager knew that it would be wrong to suppress Emperor De.
She knew when to advance and when to retreat.
She was smart and full of wisdom.
With her talent, knowledge, and wisdom, she could become a solid backer of Emperor De.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Hence, she was satisfied with how Emperor De had improved in handling the state affairs.
From his immature, and dull start to his current proficiency in the court.
The Empress Dowager was content with Emperor De’s character development.
The only headache that she had was that she could no longer understand the world itself.
