Clasping his hands, an old man with a pure white robe was greeting his guest right in his living room. Although it was late hours, the old man showed no sign of exhaustion or sleepiness.
At the same time the man that the old man addressed was a beast man who responded with clasping his own hands as well. With a calm voice, Hong Ming said, "Official Jun, sorry for the sudden visit."
"It's fine, you are here for the imperial decree, after all." spoke official Jun who bowed slightly as he resumed his speech, "Let's cut to the chase and show me about the imperial decree, Hong Ming."
After his departure from official Jun's residence and traveling for more than two days straight, finally, Hong Ming managed to get back to the capital. There's an increased amount of people on the street in one glance if he had to compare it before he started his task. The atmosphere was in a festive mood as well, with streets flooded with people and becoming more boisterous.Not to mention, there seems to be more high end carriages that passed by the street and went to the noble district. The rarely used mansions in that district started to be more lively, with guards and maids wandering around the place and Hong Ming could see it every time he passed a high ranking officials' mansion.Unlike his departure where he flew strai
Two days later, as the capital of the Yuan Empire began it's festive mood and countless soldiers situated within the palace, the local barrack, and even outside of the city, many officials from all over the entire empire came to visit the inauguration ceremony.Lines of carriages filled with exotic gifts and boxes of priceless gems could be seen all around the street, as the present for the following day after today's grand event. Even the emissaries from other countries had come to the capital and swiftly went to the palace to show their presence.It couldn't be wrong to say the capital became bursting with people, and uncountable stalls were erected all over the streets. Children were running around the place and playing tog
Coincidentally, amidst his musing, he spotted the grim complexion of the young man called Yun Long. Seeing that Yun Zha took his leave to talk with the emperor, along with other officials, Hong Ming strode to the young man and greeted him."You look like you are in a bad mood, young prince."He didn't want to suddenly be too friendly with the young man even though they just met. But considering his relationship with Yun Zha in the past decades, Hong Ming would like to have a chat with the young Yun Long, "So I'm here to keep you company."Yun Long, who saw Hong Ming approaching him and offering him a cup of wine, snorted faintly while he
When they saw the scenery of apocalypse in their vision, all of their complexion became paler as no words could come out of their mouths. Amidst the uproar and hellish scene appearing outside the palace, Hong Ming found the atmosphere around them is eerily quiet, yet very heavy. But those kinds of things wouldn't be what he had in mind for the gears in his head were running quickly.'That Meng Liyuan…!'Rage started to fill his entire being when he recalled the image of the beauty who should be with the emperor and the officials right now. The capital was a kind of home to him. Over decades, he has a lot of acquaintances and friends in the city. But all of those friends and acquaintances seemed to be swallowed by the very earth they stood
"For such things to exist…"As his eyes widened in surprise, Ang Luo who faced the Judge of Scales with an unbelieving expression couldn't help but think of the plausible explanation that was presented to him. At the same time, Judge of Scales, Meng Liyuan, smiled faintly as she pushed further about the agreement they had."We have an agreement that if I control the empire, I will help you and your lineage to achieve the higher realm. Even though this is a sudden phenomenon, the end is near. It's time to establish our contract more than ever."When Ang Luo heard those words out of Meng Liyuan's mouth, he sighed softly as he asked the que
"The emperor is calling for us?"Looking at the royal guards in front of her who was bowing his body respectfully, Liu Meng then glanced at her daughter, the princess for an instant, before she shifted her gaze back to the royal guard. The first thing in her mind is that Ang Luo to summon them urgently must have to be about finding a safer place for his family. But again, the circumstances would go poorly if the royal family hid away while their subjects were in panic."Mother, the guests and officials had been evacuated to the ballroom near the armory. It's one of the toughest places in the palace so they should be fine there."<
Walking on the spacious passage in a hurry, Hong Ming glanced at his back once in a while. The view of royal guards running around from before were nowhere to be seen. Not to mention, multiple strong Lingqi signatures could be felt around the palace.'These overwhelming auras… They are the ancestors…'The ancestor who protected the Yuan Empire and the royal palace was no different than an old legend. Though their appearances were proven by those who work in the palace long enough, however, none of those who work under the rule of Ang Luo's father and Ang Luo saw the appearance of the ancestor.'They are already coming out but his m
"Hong Ming, come here."With an overbearing tone, Meng Liyuan waved her hand for Hong Ming to come to her. Then, she turned her attention to the empress who seems to be hesitant with something and spoke impatiently, "Your highness, empress Liu Meng, we didn't have much time. Do you agree with the conditions I speak to you?"Before she could answer the question, an irritated bellow sounded from the crown prince. His face was full of scorn, while he flicked his sleeve in annoyance."Conditions? This is no different than suicide! You said you would turn us into immortals, yet you couldn't guarantee our safety in the progress? Don't joke wit
