Ch427 – Vowing Loyalty to the Lord
Liu Mengchen took a deep breath and said, “The upper realm has already ignored the lower realm for a long time. The Family Head of the Liu family has changed many times, so I do not know who my master is now.”
Yin Xinghan stood up and walked in front of Liu Mengchen. He used the longest iron feather of his iron feather fan to gently raise Liu Mengchen’s chin and studied him. “The Yan family changed hands several times, but don’t forget that the Liu family will always be a dog of the Yan family.”
Liu Mengchen pushed Yin Xinghan’s fan away and kept a straight face. “The Yan family is the master of the Liu family, but the Liu family will not vow loyalty to just anyone in the Yan family–back then, the Liu family came to the Five Continents on the Venerable Lord Yan Xi’s orders. Today, my Liu family will still only vow loyalty to Yan Xi.”
“Yan Xi has already died, but his descendants are still alive.” Yin Xinghan pulled back his fan and lightly smiled. “It seems that the Five Continents have indeed not received any news from the Nine Lands for many years. You actually don’t know that Yan Xi’s descendant is the one you are supposed to be vowing loyalty to now.”
Liu Mengchen had a bad premonition in his heart and asked, “Who is it?”
“His name is Yan Zizhang. He is among the Royal Heavenly Capital’s ranked tenth in line to inherit the throne.”
Liu Mengchen stared at him for a moment but smiled contemptuously. “Although the Yan Zizhang you speak of may be a descendant of Yan Xi, Yan Zizhang is not the only descendant of his, is he? If I am not mistaken, Yan Zhonghua is also a descendant of Yan Xi, and moreover, he is a direct main branch descendant.”
“It seems that your news is not as isolated.” Yin Xinghan raised his eyebrows and said, “Yan Zhonghua is indeed also a descendant of Yan Xi, but as of about eighteen years ago, when he had the half-Divine Devil son, he was no longer qualified. Yan Zhonghua is now a recluse, and no one knows whether he is alive or dead. Currently, other than the one on the throne, Yan Zizhang is the only one in the Yan Family who can support the prestige. If you are not loyal to him, don’t tell me that you want to continue to be loyal to Yan Zhonghua, a failure who can’t ever become emperor?”
Liu Mengchen hesitated for a moment. “Why did you guys issue a Scarlet Kill Order against Lin Zhan back then?”
Yin Xinghan smiled coldly. “Hundreds of Scarlet Kill Orders have been issued to any small words where there are subjects of the Yan Family. All reclusive families under the Yan family received such a Scarlet Kill Order. It’s just that no one knows which subjects of the small world will carry out the Scarlet Kill Order. I actually didn’t expect that it was the Liu Family in the Five Continents that ultimately had to carry out this order.”
Liu Mengchen’s heart shot up, and he narrowed his eyes. “Why do you want to kill Lin Zhan?”
“You don’t have to worry about this. However, when I discovered Lin Xuanzhi was Lin Zhan’s son, I tried to divine his life star. However, I discovered that his life star had been deliberately concealed twenty years ago.” Speaking of this subject, Yin Xinghan showed a blatantly murderous look. “Lin Zhan is being watched by someone in a high-ranking position — certainly there must be special reasons for this.”
Liu Mengchen secretly sighed.
Perhaps Yin Xinghan also didn’t know Lin Zhan was Lin Xuanzhi’s father until he arrived in the Five Continents.
It was precisely because of this discovery that Yin Xinghan focused on Lin Xuanzhi, this man he couldn’t see through, couldn’t guess, but had a natural sense of hostility towards.
“Who is Lin Xuanzhi? What is strange about him?” Yin Xinghan pressed Liu Mengchen.
“This is by no means the case.” Yin Xinghan hissed. He narrowed his eyes and looked at Liu Mengchen, saying, “Family Head Liu, you seem to be defending Lin Xuanzhi all the time. However, I am not so easily fooled. At a young age, Lin Xuanzhi can have such good luck and make people value him. Secondly, there must be an important reason for the Lord to order Lin Zhan’s death. Even if I still don’t know what the reason is, letting Lin Xuanzhi live will certainly be a disaster.”
“If you insist on this, I have nothing to say,” said Liu Mengchen faintly.
Yin Xinghan spoke, “I tell you these things, only because I think you are a talented person. If your talent is wasted or you’re damaged, I am afraid that when the time comes, the Lord will look into my responsibility in this matter. The Lord is thirsty for talents and has a powerful organization. If you can continue to be loyal sincerely, I can explain the previous matters to the Lord for you and let bygones be bygones.”
He was determined to entice people over.
If this was in the past, Liu Mengchen would promise in a heartbeat.
The connection between the Nine Lands and the lower realm had been cut off for a long time. In those days, it was only necessary for the Liu Family to continue to be loyal to the immediate descendants of Yan Xi, so they would not go against their family’s vows. Would there really be a big difference between being loyal to Yan Zhonghua or Yan Zizhang?
In any case, the Liu family would not leave the Five Continents, and the Yan Family would at most order them to maintain the status quo.
But now he was afraid he couldn’t.
Not to mention that Yan Zizhang sent out a Scarlet Kill Order, demanding him to kill Lin Zhan. Just looking at Qing Zhu’s feelings if he were to move against Lin Xuanzhi, Liu Mengchen would never follow other people’s order.
Therefore, Liu Mengchen said, “Thank you for your favor sir, but this one surnamed Liu only wants to be a wild crane leisurely in the clouds. If there is no big matter in the Five Continents, this one surnamed Liu has no time to take care of trivial private matters.”
Yin Xinghan’s face turned a few degrees colder. “It seems that you are determined to oppose me?”
“I didn’t intend to go against anyone. It’s just that the focus on Lin Xuanzhi is completely unreasonable. This one surnamed Liu really begs to differ.”
Yin Xinghan smiled with anger. He had never met this kind of person before. If in the Nine Lands, someone dared to question him like this, he certainly would have already made them regret for the rest of their life.
If it weren’t for Yan Zizhang, who told him to keep a low profile when he came here, Yin Xinghan would have even stormed into Liu family’s mountain Villa a few days ago. Why else would he give Liu Mengchen a chance to turn over a new leaf?
At this moment, Yin Xinghan knew that Liu Mengchen couldn’t be allowed to remain.
Yin Xinghan said, “Liu Mengchen, you seriously want to collapse your family for this irrelevant Lin Xuanzhi?”
Liu Mengchen’s face sank. “The Liu Family has nothing to do with this matter, it is entirely my personal decision.”
Yin Xinghan could not help but sneer, “As the Family head of the Liu family, you can represent the Liu family. Since you have betrayed the Lord, then I will handle this disloyal subject on behalf of the lord. The Lord will never be merciful or lenient towards traitors.”
Liu Mengchen only saw a flash of white light that he couldn’t catch in front of him, then his entire being lost consciousness……
Just as he walked out of the continuous secret passage, Qing Zhu suddenly stopped.
Only to seeI saw him covering his heart’s position and frowning with a pale face.
When Lin Xuanzhi saw it, he asked, “Elder Brother Zhuzi, do you feel unwell?”
Qing Zhu suddenly raised his head and looked back, only to see densely packed trees in the vicinity and mountains upon mountains in the distance. For some reason, he had a feeling of unspeakable sadness.
“I don’t know.” Qing Zhu shook his head in confusion. “I feel a little uncomfortable, but I don’t know why.”
His heart was empty, as if he had lost something important, and he couldn’t go up to the sky or down to the ground, it seemed that the world had nothing to do with him. Qing Zhu shook head in an attempt to throw this feeling out of the body, but his sense of loss only grew stronger-
“Ah!” Yan Tianhun exclaimed, “Elder Brother Zhuzi, why are you crying? If you have any unhappy matters, tell us and let us ease your anxiety–have you been bullied by Liu Mengchen again?”
When the name Liu Mengchen was mentioned, Qing Zhu’s heart suddenly hurt.
He suddenly looked up and said through uncontrolled tears, “Liu Mengchen….something must have happened to Liu Mengchen!”
Liu Zhaoyue was blindsided and said, “Don’t talk nonsense. My eldest brother is so powerful. What can happen?”
Esteemed Lan Yue’s expression changed slightly and he asked, “Who is Liu Family Head going to meet?”
Liu Zhaoyue murmured, “He said… he was going to meet the Jian family in Sky Peak City in the Central Continent.”
“The Jian Family?” Esteemed Lan Yue asked, “When your two families wanted to meet, did you ever meet in Sky Peak City?”
Liu Zhaoyue nodded and said, “That is normal. The Jian family doesn’t want to cross the border of West Continent, and we don’t want to cross the border of North Continent. Therefore, when the two families want to plan, they always do it in Sky Peak City.”
Lin Xuanzhi also felt it was more and more strange when he thought about it. He hesitated for a moment and said, “After he left, he told us to leave the Liu Family Villa immediately. Now that I think about it, this is not like the style of the Liu Family Head, and…”
He looked at Liu Zhaoyue, who left Liu Family Villa with them, and said, “We started and stopped on this road, how long did we walk for?”
Liu Zhaoyue spoke, “It takes at least five days to get out of the secret passage, We are already at Blowing Rain City.”
The secret passage of Liu’s family was indeed well concealed and easy to use. It was directly connected to another city, and this city was relatively remote, so few people would chase them here.
Lin Xuanzhi thought about it and said, “If you feel uneasy, let’s go back and take a look.”
Qing Zhu couldn’t stop crying. He sniffed and said, “I think something happened to Liu Mengchen.”
“Bah! Bah! Bah!” Liu Zhaoyue spat, “Sister-in-law, don’t jinx my big brother. He must be perfectly fine.”
Qing Zhu’s eyes were red. “I have a feeling–I don’t know where the feeling came from.”
Esteemed Lan Yue asked, “Do you want to go back and have a look?”
Qing Zhu panic-strickenly nodded his head.
Lin Xuanzhi felt that Qing Zhu’s state was really abnormal, and he felt a little doubtful and uncertain in his heart.
He looked at Yuan Tianwen and Duan Yuyang and said, “You two might as well leave first.”
Yuan Tianwen frowned and said discontentedly, “What kind of people do you think we are?”
Lin Xuanzhi said, “After all, you have to be careful about Yuyang’s body.”
Duan Yuyang waved his hand. “Don’t worry about me, my body is fine, don’t talk too much, let’s go back and have a look at Liu Family’s situation.”
Wan Yitong frowned and suddenly asked, “In the end, which family does the Liu family work for?”
Liu Zhaoyue was silent.
The reclusive families were the Divine Clan’s spies in the lower realm. The reason why they were called spies was because except themselves, no one could be sure who their lord was. In this way, even if the reclusive family did something extremely cruel and inhuman, it would not involve the Divine Clan.
Wan Yitong sniffed and said, “What time is it? What else are you planning to hide?”
