Chapter 39: White Shirt Empress Palace
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Spring was over and it was currently in the autumn season.
In a blink of an eye, three more years had passed.
In these three years, Zhao Yuling had been tagging along Chu He quietly. Staying in the book depository, reading books, playing with the tortoise, and solidifying her cultivation.
This also made the hot topic regarding the White Shirt Angel upgrading to White Shirt Empress of the Palace eventually turning into a legend.
Time was always merciless.
Even though three years was not a very long duration, Zhao Yuling had only just made a move once, and later on, she vanished from the view of the public, and it was pretty normal that people had forgotten about her.
Of course, there would always be people who were forgotten with the passage of time.
There would also be new characters showing up in the view of the crowd, and would become the new source of attention.
The Snow Empress, Lin Xueling, was the hot topic that was the center of attraction of the entire Xia clan throughout these three years.
Three years ago, not long after the White Shirt Angel had disappeared, when everyone was not satisfied and wanted to look for her whereabouts, a shocking event occurred in the lands of Annan.
A person in red clothing and holding a Qingfeng long sword of three feet long appeared in the lands of Annan, where the Xia clan had previously made contact with the territories of the Dog Fang clan.
On that day, it was a bloody scene.
The shrikes of the clansmen of the Dog Fang clan stunned the world.
An Ultimate Demi-King had blood pouring everywhere and three Demi-Kings were reduced to incomplete corpses.
Finally, the remaining three Ultimate Demi-Kings of the Dog Fang clan joined forces and made a move, only then they were able to stop that person from killing them with just a sword.
Yet, amongst the four Ultimate Demi-Kings of the Dog Fang clan, one of them died and the other three were restrained, and this made the surrounding clans see a glimpse of hope.
There were a few clans who could not suppress themselves from making a move to rub salt in the injuries of the Dog Fang clan.
Under the double impact, the Dog Fang clan was on the brink of being annihilated. They gave up a huge piece of their territory. They kept on retreating till they were at the poorest land, and only then did the other clans come to a halt.
In the end, the Dog Fang clan struck a negotiation with Lin Xueling.
They were willing to pay a huge sum of compensation and pleaded to come to peaceful terms.
There were Demi-Kings elders from the Xia clan who rushed over and persuaded Lin Xueling to accept the condition.
Right now, the Dog Fang clan was a crazed beast that was locked up and at the same time, they were at their most dangerous.
If they were to force them to have a deadly battle, under the condition with no absolute prowess, having the three Ultimate Demi-Kings staying back would only cause more troubles for the Xia clan.
It would be just like the Xia clan in the past. When they were being cornered, the enemy would give up continuing to pursue them
It was not because the enemy was being kind but it was just the living principle of all the clans throughout the Great Wasteland.
Under the circumstances without absolute prowess, the best way to extinguish the enemy’s overwhelming combat effectiveness would be to restrict their survival space, banish them to the poorest spot, and let them slowly die off by themselves.
After all, with the survival space being reduced, it would mean they had lost their resources, and without resources, it was almost fated that they would fail.
That was the most steady method.
On the other hand, pursuing eagerly and annihilating other clans whenever one desired would require both parties to have a huge difference in their combat effectiveness, or else they would suffer a huge loss.
After all, there were tons of clans in the Great Wasteland. If two clans were to have a deadly war, the only one who would benefit from it, in the end, would be those clans surrounding them.
It was just like the Xia kingdom from hundreds of years ago, during the war with the Mei clan. The war ended with a bloody scene and both parties suffered from huge losses and up to that date, they had yet to recover.
In the past, the Xia clan would just annihilate the opposition if small clans like the Dog Fang clan dared to offend them.
At that time, the territory of the Xia clan was more than 10 times larger than it was now. Besides that, they even conquered a few precious lands.
Currently, it was all gone!
The negotiation was a success.
Even though in the end, Lin Xueling did not manage to carry out the monumental task of annihilating the entire clan by herself, her fame was spread out regardless.
The entire Xia clan and those clans around had heard of her legacy.
In a split moment, the clans around the Xia clan had suddenly behaved themselves and dared not casually get into a fight with the Xia clan at the borderlands.
That was the true terror of a King!
In these three years, Chu He’s cultivation had broken through the Sixth Level of the Fourth Turn. Once he completed it, he would be proceeding to the Seventh Level.
His Golden Manifestation of Buddha’s Form had completed the second level. His golden body and soul had solidified much more and he could begin improving his combat effectiveness.
“Brother Lil Chu, aunty is so grand right now! She’s being given the title of an emperor in the palace!”
Zhao Yuling carried the little tortoise and laid on the deck chair, swinging on it while she finished reading the report that she was holding.
She raised her head and said, “If you’re envious, you can make a trip there too!”
Chu He opened his eyes calmly and said, “You have enough prowess. If you think hard about it, just look for a border and beat the crap out of a small clan. That will do the trick!”
“I don’t want to. That seems tedious!”
Zhao Yuling shook her head and added, “I still prefer being like Brother Lil Chu. Teaching others, and reading books. It’s carefree and fun!”
“Say, Brother Lil Chu, what if I start an academy outside? I’ve even thought of the name, White Shirt Empress Palace!”
The more she talked about it, the more her eyes glittered.
She supported her chin and indulged in her fantasy.
It was as if she could already see the tens of thousands of students below her, being the pillars of the Xia clan, and expanding the territory of the Xia clan. She also visualized the scene where her dominance shook tens of thousands of other clans.
That would not just settle her issues, it could also fulfill her ambition to protect the Xia clan.
“Go ahead if you want to! It’s not easy being a tutor!”
Chu He shook his head and smiled when he saw the girl chuckling in a silly manner.
He did not stop her from doing it.
After all, that girl was still young and she could not possibly always accompany him in the book depository.
‘Well, youngsters should go out and do something; only then will they experience a world-changing moment.
Suddenly, Chu He felt envious.
It must be good being young.
They had ambitions and dreams.
They even had the spirit of doing things as soon as they thought about it.
Unlike him, even though he did not look old, his heart had aged instead!
Without him realizing it, he was already 71-years-old!
He had stayed in the book depository for 57 years!
Time really passed swiftly.
Fortunately, following his cultivation that was getting higher, his lifespan lengthened as well.
Or else, if he was just a manager of the book depository like before, his current age would be at its limit or perhaps his body would have yielded long ago
“But, if I leave, who’s going to talk to you and free you from boredom, Brother Lil Chu?!”
Zhao Yuling hesitated before speaking.
‘This girl is quite kind.’
Chu He let out a laugh.
“You don’t have to worry about me. With such a peaceful environment, I’ll be able to cultivate in peace. Cultivation requires tranquility.”
“You! Don’t worry about it and go be an empress tutor. You just have to come back twice a year to visit, that will be enough.”
Those were not comforting words cooked up by Chu He, but a sincere statement.
He really wanted to have some peace and isolate himself to upgrade the realm of the Golden Manifestation of Buddha’s Form. He wanted to grasp the opportunity to attain the same level as the Golden Nine Turns.
In the meantime, he was able to conclude and recompose the mindset of his cultivation.
