Lin Feng didn’t take any pleasure in being an official. It was just for revenge. Otherwise, he would not have become an official in the secular world.
“Since Lin Feng has become Minister of Justice, there is no need for Lu Zhan. Kill him!” Ancestor Tai put his eyes on Lu Zhan, and his tone was extremely harsh, his killing intent obvious. A strong man with no use was no different from the dead. He was going to abandon Lu Zhan.
Lu Zhan knelt on the ground, so scared that he was sweating. He kept wiping away his sweat. At this moment, he was eager for someone to say something to save his life. He had no expectations of Dong Fang Yu Qing. If it wasn’t for Dong Fang Yu Qing, he would not have been involved in this. He hated Dong Fang Yu Qing and wanted to kill him.
“Ancestor Tai, I have a request.” When Lin Feng saw this, he couldn’t help laughing inside. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, a good opportunity to recruit someone, so he interrupted Ancestor Tai’s words.
Ancestor Tai was not angry. He appreciated Lin Feng very much, as he was brought in by Nian Ling Jiao. He had some longing in his heart. His daughter had never had a husband. If she could marry Lin Feng, that would be wonderful.
Although Lin Feng was not from the Zhen Wu Dynasty, he was a powerful general under Ni Huang. He had unified the Region of the Eight Corners and become the Leader there. He was also a lord of the land who could match Nian Ling Jiao.
Lin Feng’s talent and strength were fearsome. It was inevitable that he would be an Overlord in the future. It was natural for her to marry Lin Feng! So, Ancestor Tai treated Lin Feng as a potential son-in-law, not a simple Minister of Justice.
Lin Feng didn’t know what the old guy thought. If he did, he would have escaped from the Zhen Wu Dynasty in the middle of the night.
“If it’s reasonable, I’ll take it,” Ancestor Tai nodded and looked at Lin Feng with a smile, waiting for his request.
Nian Ling Jiao guessed what Lin Feng was going to do, and she couldn’t help laughing. As expected, he was a smart man.
Dong Fang Yu Qing’s face turned white. He had been in office for a long time, and understood what Lin Feng was going to do.
“Ancestor Tai, I have just been appointed as Minister of Justice, and I have no experience. Lu Zhan was an indispensable talent in the Zhen Wu Dynasty. In the aspect of law enforcement, he has more experience than I. Can you give Lu Zhan to me? I will appoint him to be the Assistant Minister of Justice to help me.”
Lin Feng gave Dong Fang Yu Qing a provocative glance, as he put forward his request.
At this moment, Lu Zhan cried out in shock. He never thought that the person who saved him was the one he wanted to kill, after he assisted the one who wanted to kill him. This officialdom was so cruel!
At this moment, officials realized that Lin Feng was not a simple person, and not a naive official at all. Once Lin Feng took over, they wouldn’t be able to treat the new Minister of Justice badly.
Ancestor Tai was also stunned, but soon smiled, as expected.
He didn’t disappoint Ancestor Tai. Lin Feng was able to do anything. The reason why he was so dignified was that he wanted Lin Feng to save the Earthly Godly Ancestor. How could he kill an Earthly Godly Ancestor at will?
Lin Feng had killed two birds with one stone. In the future, there would be no hindrance to the Ministry of Law Enforcement. After all, Lu Zhan promoted the officials of his department. However, Lin Feng was kind to Lu Zhan, Lu Zhan would certainly not betray him, and Lin Feng would be elevated.
“Well, you are just a Minister of Justice. What qualifications do you have to make this request of me?”
Ancestor Tai’s face suddenly changed, his face was cold, and his tone was full of power and authority. He glared at Lin Feng angrily.
The atmosphere suddenly changed. Nian Ling Jiao was stunned. What happened to her father? What was with the sudden change of face?
Lu Zhan’s heart trembled. Didn’t Ancestor Tai want him to live?
“Ancestor Tai, I’m not qualified, but I hope you’ll save someone’s poor life.” Lin Feng nodded slightly, insisting on the request.
At this moment, Lu Zhan was very moved. He was satisfied. Even if he could not live, he thanked Lin Feng for his whole life. There was no regret.
“Well, if you say more and plead for him, I will kill you!”
The roar and boom fell at Lin Feng’s side, and it almost took Lin Feng’s life. Ancestor Tai’s fist was hard and bullying, scaring hundreds of officials to kneel on the ground, Dong Fang Yu Qing also looked away from Lin Feng with a smile.
-Wanted to be the good guy? Ha ha, Ancestor Tai doesn’t agree!- Dong Fang Yu Qing was calm.
“Lin Minister, Lu Zhan thanks you for it, but you don’t have to put your life on the line for me. In the past, I did wrong, and I read the wrong person. It has nothing to do with you.” Lu Zhan raised his head and spoke loudly. He didn’t want Lin Feng to keep talking for him.
Lin Feng took back his eyes, continued to look at Ancestor Tai, and said in a deep voice, “If you kill me today, Ancestor Tai will lose face, but my request is real. If you agree, you are a sensible emperor. If you refuse, I’m afraid I can’t serve as Minister of Justice!”
“Son of a bitch, you are just a minister. How can you talk to Your Majesty like this? Are you seeking to die?” Dong Fang Yu Qing roared before Lin Feng even finished his words. He glared at Lin Feng. He was worried that he couldn’t find a chance to vent. Lin Feng gave him a good chance!
Lin Feng’s bold words shocked all the people. Nian Ling Jiao was in a cold sweat behind him. She couldn’t imagine what had happened. The two people who were originally very harmonious turned their faces?
Lin Feng’s words were too hard to hear. No monarch could hear them, but the emperor in front of him smiled, and his smile was extremely bright. He nodded slowly, “OK, this is the Minister of Justice I wanted to find.”
“To engage in law enforcement is to be upright. You dared to scold me, the great Ancestor Tai! Ha ha, what else dare you not do?
“You take Lu Zhan away, appoint him to any official position, you make the final decision, and what’s more, I’m making you the Bodhisattva, outranking the main four officials.”
When Ancestor Tai was happy, he raised Lin Feng’s official position instantly. He was promoted to the fourth Duke directly, making him the Bodhisattva. It should be known that there were only three Dukes in the Zhen Wu Dynasty, namely the Prime Minister, Tai Wei, and Yu Shi Da Fu. Lin Feng was now the fourth Duke, the Bodhisattva!
Dong Fang Yu Qing sensed a crisis. Although it was an unintentional act of Ancestor Tai, it really added intangible pressure to him.
At the moment, Lin Feng’s position in the Zhen Wu Dynasty was no lower than his own… but Lin Feng had no contacts.
Lu Zhan’s face was very happy. He would not be killed. He would not only change his master to help him in the future, but this new master ranked fourth, and was the Bodhisattva!
Lin Feng could be said to be the fastest rising official ever, promoted to the fourth Duke directly.
Nian Ling Jiao stayed in the Imperial Palace to accompany Ancestor Tai for a few days, and Ancestor Tai also gave Lin Feng a new residence, where he could live after leaving the palace.
In the hall, Ancestor Tai and Nian Ling Jiao had both left, leaving only the officials. However, the officials were afraid of Dong Fang Yu Qing. They dared not congratulate Lin Feng, and they all left in silence.
Lu Zhan was helped up by Lin Feng himself. The former was so grateful that he had to kneel back down.
“Senior, help me a lot in the future. I’m still a newcomer. Ha ha!” Lin Feng patted the shoulder of Lu Zhan. Although the latter was an Earthly Godly Ancestor, since he had been corrupted by the secular concept of hierarchy, he could treat Lu Zhan the same way as he dealt with the officials.
He had no helpers in the Zhen Wu Dynasty. After bringing up Lu Zhan, at least he had some self-protection. In the future, he could strengthen his power to fight Dong Fang Yu Qing. An enemy must be killed! Lin Feng had to pay back Dong Fang Yu Qing’s torturing. He dared not forget!
“You are welcome. In the future, Lu Zhan will be smashed to pieces to repay your great kindness.” Lu Zhan humbly lowered his head with a strong figure, but a humble heart.
“Hum, you are a dog. Whoever treats you well, you will talk to him! Lin Feng, you should be careful. This dog will bite people.” Dong Fang Yu Qing passed by Lin Feng with a very ugly face, shouting those words coldly, and then went straight out of the hall.
“Prime Minister, I don’t have this concept in my eyes. My brothers are all good to me. It seems that we have different attitudes towards people. Ha ha!” Lin Feng fiercely refuted Dong Fang Yu Qing and told Lu Zhan that as long as he didn’t betray him, he was his brother.
Lu Zhan felt very warm in his heart. He was indeed a dog in the eyes of Dong Fang Yu Qing, but Lin Feng regarded him as his own person. This gap was immediately reflected.
“Hypocrisy, ha ha!” Dong Fang Yu Qing snorted coldly, snapped the long sleeves of his official uniform, and left the hall directly for his carriage. He didn’t want to see Lin Feng at all right now.
