Chapter 95: Waiting for the Rain Again?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
After obtaining the key from Princess Yulin, Emperor De didn’t immediately rush to the Cold Palace. He didn’t tell anyone and returned to the Forbidden City to continue dealing with the state affairs.
In the latter half of the night, Emperor De quietly left the Forbidden City alone and went for the Cold Palace.
Late at night, he opened the Cold Palace’s door.
Once the door to the Cold Palace was opened, Emperor De didn’t go in.
Instead, he bowed all the way and said in a deep voice, “Unfilial descendant is disturbing Big Grand-Uncle’s rest. I ask for Big Grand-Uncle’s help.”
Lin Jiufeng and the white cat who was cultivating opened their eyes.
“Your descendant is here.” The white cat looked at Lin Jiufeng.
Lin Jiufeng was puzzled. “How did he know that I was here?”
Did the Empress Dowager tell him?
That shouldn’t be the case…
If the Empress Dowager wanted to tell Emperor De about him, then she would have already done so five years ago when Princess Yulin was forced into a marriage alliance.
Why wait until now?
Lin Jiufeng initially wanted to ignore him, but Emperor De had already addressed him as Big Grand-Uncle. His confident tone meant that he knew that Lin Jiufeng was there.
“How did you know of my existence?” Lin Jiufeng asked curiously.
Outside the Cold Palace, Emperor De’s expression shook.
He pulled himself together and said, “It’s because I’ve been looking through all sorts of information in the past five years, including things that happened decades ago, as well as the relics left behind by my father and grandfather.”
“Smart.” The white cat praised.
Lin Jiufeng didn’t expect that Emperor De discovered his identity through the latter’s own deduction.
This made Lin Jiufeng think highly of him.
“Isn’t the Yuhua God Dynasty doing well? Why did you come to find me?”
Seeing that he was so smart, Lin Jiufeng decided to ask about his purpose for coming here.
What exactly happened that Emperor De himself came here to look for him?
Instead of the Empress Dowager coming here.
After all, the Empress Dowager was the only one that was supposed to know of his existence.
But the Empress Dowager didn’t come to seek his help.
Emperor De immediately told him about the recent events in the Yuhua God Dynasty and about the Seven Great Sages of the Monster and Demon Race.
One stood before the Cold Palace while the other was within the courtyard.
Their voices weren’t loud, but both sides could hear each other properly.
After Emperor De finished talking about the Seven Sages, he knelt on both knees and pleaded.
“Big Grand-Uncle, Grandpa Emperor and Father passed the Yuhua God Dynasty to me in one piece. Not to mention pioneering new territories, but it’s my responsibility to guard the foundation of the ancestors without losing even an inch of land.”
“But the Seven Sages are simply too powerful…”
“The power of a secular dynasty such as our Yuhua God Dynasty is no match for them. If the Yuhua God Dynasty’s lands were to be given up by me, then I would really be a sinner for all eternity. Even if I were to die ten thousand times, I would still be unable to make up for it.”
“Today, it is already an unforgivable sin for me, this unfilial descendant, to rashly come to your door and disturb Big Grand-Uncle’s leisurely cultivation. I only hope that the Big Grand-Uncle can help the Yuhua God Dynasty and protect the foundation built by our ancestors…”
“This way, in the netherworld, Grandpa Emperor will remain smiling.”
Emperor De had truly matured.
Five years ago, he was still a stubborn child who didn’t know how to take responsibility and was only focused on his own path of cultivation.
But now, he had the responsibility of an emperor boring down his shoulders.
Lin Jiufeng stood in the courtyard and looked at the walls that were covered with sword scars.
His gaze was faint as he looked through the walls one after another.
He then saw the kneeling Emperor De.
He was impressed.
Lin Jiufeng remembered very clearly that five years ago, the Emperor of the Great Xia’s Dragon Sparrow came to ask for a marriage alliance in order to maintain peace with the Yuhua God Dynasty.
The court officials were in a terrible dispute over it.
As an elder brother and also the Emperor, Emperor De actually couldn’t come up with a decision.
He just vehemently disagreed and hid in the Forbidden City to cultivate diligently.
If it wasn’t for Lin Jiufeng, Princess Yulin wouldn’t be able to escape that calamity.
The Emperor De from five years ago was truly just a child.
But five years later, he was now a man who could take up his responsibility as the Emperor of a God Dynasty.
He knew that with the Yuhua God Dynasty’s strength, it wouldn’t be able to withstand the attacks of the Seven Great Sages. At that time, the best outcome would be to compensate them with a large amount of land to appease their anger.
But Emperor De knew that he couldn’t do that. If he did so, then he would become the greatest sinner of his lineage. At his wits’ end, he directly came to look for Lin Jiufeng.
Without caring about his own reputation, he knelt down and sincerely asked for his help.
But why did these so-called Seven Great Sages sound so familiar?
Lin Jiufeng was certain that he had heard this from someone before.
“Seven Great Sages…” The white cat pointed underground with its white claws.
Lin Jiufeng instantly remembered the Demon King that he had defeated earlier in the day in the demon’s den beneath the copper coffin.
That Demon King said that he was one of the Seven Great Sages, Demon King Pingtian.
Lin Jiufeng asked curiously, “Who are the Seven Great Sages?”
Hearing Lin Jiufeng’s question, Emperor De became excited.
As long as Lin Jiufeng was willing to listen, there was hope for him to lend a hand.
“They are the Great Sage of the Ocean Cove, Demon King Jiao, Great Sage of the Chaotic Heavens, Demon King Dapeng, Great Sage of the Moving Mountain, Demon King Gui, Great Sage of the Blowing Wind, Demon King Yuan, Great Sage of the White Clothed, Bai Zilong, Great Sage of the Dreaming, Yun Shanhai, and Great Sage of the Heaven Leveling, the Heaven Raising Bull.”
Emperor De stated their names.
When Lin Jiufeng heard about the Great Sage of the Heaven Leveling, he revealed an ‘as expected’ expression on his face.
The Great Sage of the Heaven Leveling, one of the Seven Great Sages of the Monster Race and Demon Race, was currently being suppressed inside the demon’s den.
Just today, he was defeated by Lin Jiufeng and the latter used him to sign-in for a good item.

And on the night of that same day, Emperor De came to ask for help, informing Lin Jiufeng that the other members of the Seven Sages were coming to the Yuhua God Dynasty to ask for a piece of land from the God Dynasty.
Lin Jiufeng looked at Emperor De and said, “Go back and find out how many of the Seven Great Sages are coming, and where they are right now. Also, don’t tell anyone about me.”
Emperor De was overjoyed.
When he heard this, he was finally reassured.
He felt as if a great burden was lifted off his chest.
Emperor De hurriedly kowtowed a few times and replied in excitement, “I will go back and investigate this matter thoroughly before coming back here to report!”
“Go,” Lin Jiufeng said softly.
Emperor De stood up and carefully closed the Cold Palace’s door before rushing back to investigate.
From the beginning till the end, he never saw Lin Jiufeng with his own eyes.
But after hearing Lin Jiufeng’s voice, he felt the urge to trust Lin Jiufeng in his heart.
This was probably a form of trust that came from their bloodline connection.
For some reason, Lin Jiufeng’s words alone were enough to quell his panic and apprehension.
After Emperor De left, Lin Jiufeng and the white cat looked at each other.
“You want to interfere in this matter?” The white cat asked.
“Yes. If the Imperial Court were to start giving up land to compensate them, its demise would surely be nigh.” Lin Jiufeng nodded.
If there was a first time, there would be a second, third… countless times.
Lin Jiufeng didn’t want the Yuhua God Dynasty—which Emperor Yuan and Emperor Ming had painstakingly reformed—to fall into ruin after just three generations.
“You are going to intervene?” The white cat laid on Lin Jiufeng’s shoulder and softly asked.
Lin Jiufeng thought for a while.
Then, he replied in a serious manner. “Maybe… maybe there isn’t a need for me to stop the Seven Sages myself.”
“If you don’t appear and stop the Seven Sages, who can possibly defeat them out there?” The white cat said.
The Seven Great Sages of the Monster and Demon Race weren’t beings that those of the Human God Realm could match against.
Lin Jiufeng smiled and said, “Indeed, no one from the Yuhua God Dynasty can fight them, but there’s someone who may be able to.”
“Who?” The white cat asked curiously.
Her eyes, which seemed to have celestial bodies in them, looked at Lin Jiufeng.
Reflected in her eyes were not only the stars but also Lin Jiufeng himself.
“Didn’t you see him this morning?” Lin Jiufeng asked softly.
“Great Sage of the Heaven Leveling? That Demon King?” The white cat recalled.
That Demon King Pingtian was one of the Seven Great Sages.
“What do you think the effect would be if I released him and asked him to solve this problem for me?” Lin Jiufeng told the white cat his plan.
“Be careful of creating problems for yourself. Those demons are not to be trifled with. Once they absorbed the spiritual energy in the outside world, their strength will increase by leaps and bounds.” The white cat was worried.
“It’s fine. As long as I’m around, the Imperial Capital and the Yuhua God Dynasty will never fall into chaos!” Lin Jiufeng was confident.
“Then why don’t you just stop the Seven Sages yourself?” The white cat asked curiously.
It’s not convenient for me to fight now, I’m waiting for the first spring rain!”Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Lin Jiufeng simply stated.
“Waiting for the rain again?” The white cat looked at Lin Jiufeng in surprise.
Lin Jiufeng just smiled.
But in the end, he didn’t say anything.
