Just when Lin Feng was about to turn Dong Fang Yu Qing into the King of his Corpse Demons, Lang Shi Ning’s spirit gave out an exclamation, and Lin Feng felt the Gloomy Spirit in his body disappear. Dong Fang Yu Qing, lying on the ground there, suddenly closed his eyes, and his breathing also changed.
“If you can revive, it can be seen as my contribution to the Zhen Wu Dynasty,” Lin Feng told Lang Shi Ning telepathically, then turned around and left. Before leaving, he glanced at the three Ministers: Li Pin, the Minister of War; Xu Chang, the Minister of Official Affairs; and Nian Lun, the Minister of Wealth.
They bowed their heads deeply. They all knew that there would be no Prime Minister of the Zhen Wu Dynasty in the future, only Lin Feng as the Bodhisattva.
When the silently watching Ancestor Tai saw his nephew dead, he sighed. He clenched his jaw and felt uncomfortable all over. His clothes were wet with cold sweat. Don’t blame your uncle. Uncle must abandon you for the sake of the Zhen Wu Dynasty!
Ancestor Tai wiped a tear from the corner of his eyes, turned around, and also left.
Gradually, all the watching people left. The body of Dong Fang Yu Qing was left lying on the ground, as no one dared to pick it up and bury it.
Somehow Dong Fang Yu Qing slowly opened his eyes, but his expression had already changed into that of another person. It was Lang Shi Ning, a spirit now dwelling in Dong Fang Yu Qing’s body.
“I am reborn,” a slightly hoarse voice came from the mouth of Dong Fang Yu Qing. He was very satisfied, very happy to be revived again.
“Dong Fang Yu Qing, your Spirit, I’ve reserved it for you. But I won’t let you come out to damage the Zhen Wu Dynasty, nor will I let you go find Lin Feng for revenge. I will keep you alive, mainly because I don’t want to lose the only heir of the Dong Fang family.”
Lang Shi Ning raised his left hand; there seemed to be a Spirit in a very small crystal in the palm of his hand, but it couldn’t really be seen clearly. This was the Spirit of Dong Fang Yu Qing, which had been gathered by Lang Shi Ning.
“I’m in charge of your body for now, but I don’t know how long that will last.” Lang Shi Ning sighed. After all, it was not a resurrection, it was just a kind of domination of another person’s body.
A bit later, Lin Feng stood in front of Ancestor Tai, holding the wedding invitation sent by Ni Huang. Qian Jin Cai Yue was going to get married tomorrow, and the man she was marrying was his sworn brother, Luo Chao Sheng. The wedding news came suddenly, shocking Lin Feng.
However, after the shock, the rest was his blessing for Qian Jin Cai Yue. As long as she was happy, it would be a perfect ending for whomever she married. There wouldn’t be a happy ending between him and Qian Jin Cai Yue. Just thinking that her father was Fu Xi made Lin Feng feel estranged.
“It’s time for you to leave the Zhen Wu Dynasty and take Ling Jiao with you. She will go to the wedding on behalf of me, and you can return!” There was a trace of loss and gloom in Ancestor Tai’s voice which was hard to hide, and he sighed faintly, but his eyes conveyed his blessing.
Lin Feng was also reluctant to part with him. After several months of living together, he found that although Ancestor Tai cared about secular power too much, he was also nothing less than the Overlord of a generation. He was indeed worthy of the name of the Southwest’s Ancestor Tai, and he did things fairly.
There were also many memories left behind in the Zhen Wu Dynasty. Of course, this was not a reason for him to stay here. At first, he had planned to kill Dong Fang Yu Qing and leave here. Now that he had done what he needed to, there was no need for him to stay in the Southwest. Naturally, he still wanted to go back to his own lands.
“Elder, I don’t dare to say anything else, but from now on, the Eight Corners and Zhen Wu Dynasty will be allies forever!” Lin Feng thanked Ancestor Tai and said this promise from his heart.
Ancestor Tai smiled. With Lin Feng’s words, he was satisfied. Therefore, his thoughtfulness wouldn’t be in vain. Lin Feng was indeed a diamond in the rough!
“Stop talking, leave fast. According to your speed, it’s impossible to arrive by noon tomorrow. I will give my Ancestor Cloud to Ling Jiao, so your speed will improve a lot.”
When Ancestor Tai said this, he met Nian Ling Jiao’s eyes, then his gaze flashed with a golden light, imprinting into Nian Ling Jiao’s eyes. Nian Ling Jiao suddenly understood how to manipulate the Ancestor Cloud.
“See you in the future, Elder!” Lin Feng clenched his fist tightly and smiled at Ancestor Tai. After turning around, he followed Nian Ling Jiao and left the hall directly.
Many officials had gathered outside the gate of the Imperial Palace, all of them Lin Feng’s confidants. At this moment, every one of them was sending Lin Feng off. Seeing this, Lin Feng felt very sad.
“Lord, take care!” Lu Zhan’s eyes were wet, even a robust man like him was crying. It could be seen that his emotions for Lin Feng were something that Dong Fang Yu Qing couldn’t compare to. Lin Feng did care about Lu Zhan, so he gained loyalty from Lu Zhan in return.
Lin Feng not only saved his life, but had made his official position even higher. Lu Zhan had become the new Bodhisattva, but he knew it clearly that he owed it all to Lin Feng.
“Be a good officer, and be the man who speaks for people. I will be back at some time. If I see the loose Law Enforcement you managed at that time, I will hold you accountable,” Lin Feng smiled and said, clapping the shoulder of Lu Zhan heavily.
“Don’t worry. If I do something against my conscience, the heavens will punish me!” Lu Zhan solemnly promised, clenched his fists. He felt unbearably bittier, but he held back the pain and did not cry again.
Lin Feng nodded with satisfaction, and then looked at the fifteen Law Enforcement Army troops in armor behind Lu Zhan. These fifteen men were also men released from the prison. Lin Feng was regarded as a benefactor by all of them.
“My Lord, come back to see us sometime!” the strongest man said with a grin, but inside he was very sad.
“Yes, sir, we will never forget your great kindness. If you have something to ask for, we will not hesitate to serve you, even if we need to go through fire and water.”
” My Lord, if you need staff, we will do our best.”
“My Lord, we…”
…For ten minutes, Lin Feng exchanged goodbyes with these officials. Nian Ling Jiao watched silently and held her tongue. It was hard for her to imagine that Lin Feng, who had only been in the Zhen Wu Dynasty for a few months, would have so many subordinates, all of whom were affectionate and righteous.
However, the ridiculous Dong Fang Yu Qing had lived for tens of thousands of years and ended up with a cruel death. When he died, no one stepped out for him. Compared to Lin Feng, it was obvious who was superior at a glance.
“Let’s go.” Lin Feng said lightly, heading for Nian Ling Jiao. He turned around and waved to everyone, Nian Ling Jiao nodded, and then recited the mantra. A golden hundred-meter cloud fell from the sky to the feet of Lin Feng and Nian Ling Jiao. Both of them stepped onto the Ancestor Cloud.
Like a hurricane, the Ancestor Cloud rose into the sky and went straight North, away from the Imperial Palace of Zhen Wu Dynasty.
“Farewell, my lord! Farewell, my princess!”
“Bodhisattva, see you!”
“Bodhisattva is gone. Father, he is gone.”
At this moment, not only in the Imperial Palace, but also in every corner of the Zhen Wu Dynasty, countless people looked up at the sky. The old man, the young man, the children and even the women all watched the golden cloud leave the sky of the Zhen Wu Dynasty. These ordinary people could not help but cover their faces and cry.
They had all benefited deeply from the management of the Bodhisattva. Before, lots of unfair things were put in good order under the management of the Bodhisattva. No officials dared to be vicious and tyrannical, nor did the subordinates of any of the senior officials dare to bully people.
All this was because of the Bodhisattva. So when Lin Feng left, their hearts turned cold, and they despaired for the future.
The laughter in the Zhen Wu Dynasty vanished that night. It was not as lively as before. It fell into a silence, like a dead city.
Ancestor Tai’s divine sense was looking around the whole of the Zhen Wu Dynasty, and he could not help but sense that feeling. This was what the people wanted. The more he saw this scene, the more disappointed he was in his management. Lin Feng had appeared, which had improved the atmosphere of the Zhen Wu Dynasty. As Lin Feng left, the whole Zhen Wu Dynasty was in awe.
“Dong Fang Yu Qing, you were the Prime Minister and first assistant for tens of thousands of years, but you were not as good as Lin Feng, who was the Bodhisattva for merely several months.” Ancestor Tai left behind the regret that he had tacitly approved of Lin Feng killing his nephew, and some of the emotions he had left for his nephew also disappeared.
From now on, all the officials of the whole Zhen Wu Dynasty would only obey their orders, and there would be no second Dong Fang Yu Qing. Lin Feng had no intention of being a secular official, so his subordinates would not be the next Dong Fang Yu Qing. It could be said that Lin Feng had broken a chess game.
“Is this the Empire you built? This is what your descendants in the East told your ancestors?”
Suddenly there was a slightly hoarse voice in the hall of Ancestor Tai, and Dong Fang Yu Qing came in from outside. When Ancestor Tai saw Dong Fang Yu Qing, he was extremely frightened. His face turned pale and he pointed directly at Dong Fang Yu Qing, he gasped, “Why didn’t you die?!”
There could be no accident. Lin Feng had killed Dong Fang Yu Qing completely. He saw it with his own eyes. Lin Feng couldn’t leave such a potential disaster behind, so what was the matter?
“I’m Lang Shi Ning!”
His cry made the whole hall calm down. Ancestor Tai’s face first showed shock, and then respect.
“It’s you. How did you do this?” Ancestor Tai breathed and felt a little relieved, but he couldn’t help asking.
“I asked Lin Feng. I have occupied the body of Dong Fang Yu Qing. I can borrow his corpse to become a human to some extent. Of course, there are limitations. I don’t know how many years this will last.”
“I see. Please take a seat,” Ancestor Tai nodded, and then hurriedly helped Lang Shi Ning to sit down. After all, he was a key official who had helped found the country. He fought alongside Ancestor Tai’s grandfather, so he dared not neglect him. But seeing Dong Fang’s face, it was difficult for him to accept this.
“No need for that, I just needed to meet you and ask you to manage the Zhen Wu Dynasty well. This country was established by your ancestors of the Dong Fang family. I don’t want it to be lost in your hands.
“You’ve seen Lin Feng’s potential, and you can see what he has done. I hope that there will be more such officials in the Zhen Wu Dynasty in the future, or the Zhen Wu Dynasty will be in danger!”
This was not alarmism, but a real problem. If an empire couldn’t maintain long-term stability, it would cause disaster and chaos, and the people wouldn’t be able to survive, thus they would lack a cohesive force. Coupled with too much bureaucracy, such an empire would rot little by little!
After hearing the words of Lang Shi Ning, Ancestor Tai fell into deep thought.
Lang Shi Ning left the palace directly. He had assisted Dong Fang Hang for more than a hundred thousand years. Now it was his time to travel the World of Battle and live the life he wanted. As for the time limit of returning the soul with a corpse, just let it be.
