Chapter 520 – The Emperor’s Gifts
After leaving the Imperial Palace, Yan Tianhen followed Yan Zhonghua and You Ming in the Luan bird carriage and flew straight towards King Ye’s Palace.
On the way, Yan Tianhen opened the storage bottle and poured out the contents to take a look. The corners of his mouth couldn’t help twitching. “Grandpa Emperor actually gave me a bottle of lube.”
You Ming slapped Yan Tianhen on the back of his head and said, “You were bold enough to say that you are a cut sleeve in front of so many people. Believe it or not, in a few days, everyone would know that the son of You Ming is a cut sleeve.”
Yan Tianhen curled his lips and said, “It would be strange if you could give birth to a son who is not a cut sleeve. Your own sleeves are completely cut, and I am not allowed to cut mine?”
You Ming sighed and said, “I didn’t announce it to everyone!”
Yan Tianhen thought in his heart, Don’t everyone know right now? Moreover, he heard that when You Ming was chasing Yan Zhonghua all over the Nine Lands back then, didn’t he also make it so that all the Divine Clans knew?
Of course, he didn’t have the guts to say it.
Yan Tianhen said, “I can’t help it either. If I didn’t save myself at that time, you might have an additional prospective daughter-in-law today. I don’t like that Princess Yuqing. She’s a crazy girl. I like the quiet and calm ones.”
“What if Huarong Sword Immortal is a woman?” asked You Ming.
“Then I can only reluctantly like women,” Yan Tianhen answered.
You Ming slapped him on the forehead again.
You Ming said to Yan Zhonghua unhappily, “Really now, that Father Emperor of yours — even if he likes that Imperial Consort, he still doesn’t have to spoil her sister. Even that would still be fine, but he just had to have ideas about my family’s Ah Hen. I really don’t know what your Yan family is thinking.”
Yan family, “…..”
Yan Zhonghua also suffered a disaster that had nothing to do with him, but he said with a good temper, “Think about it from one side — Father Emperor didn’t force Ah Hen to marry that girl in the end, right?”
You Ming glared at Yan Zhonghua and said, “No coercion does not mean that he didn’t want to do it. If Princess Yuqing had done something more stubborn and your Father Emperor had been more fond of that Imperial Consort or whatever, who knows what the result would’ve been? Maybe he would tell Ah Hen directly, ‘Oh, Ah Hen, although you can’t get hard for women, your Grandpa Emperor has a bottle of golden spear pills, why don’t you try it?’ Let me see if you can still be so calm when that happens.”
Yan Tianhen was drinking tea, and he spat out a mouthful of water.
Yan Tianhen said, “Then I’d better smash my head on the wall.”
You Ming touched his chin and pondered and said, “Speaking of which, Jingshui is a very unusual woman. She can climb to this position in a few years and coax the emperor into smiling all day long. Dual cultivation is probably all he can think of right now. She really is something.”
Yan Zhonghua put the tea cup on the table and said lightly, “The physical appearance of Imperial Consort Jingshui is very much like my mother. The Empress died on the battlefield of the North Land in those years. My Father Emperor did not even get to see her one last time. Decades later, he still had some thoughts of her in his mind.”
You Ming suddenly realized and said, “I see. But isn’t it strange that suddenly there is a person who looks like your Empress Mother?”
Yan Tianhen was also very surprised.
Yan Zhonghua looked at the father and son staring at him with wide apricot eyes in the same way. He couldn’t help but feel warm in his heart. He smiled and said, “Naturally there is, but in the past few years, the Yan family has never told anyone in order to ensure their transcendental status. Moreover, the spiritual Qi of the big world nearby is not thinner than that of the Nine Lands.”
You Ming’s mind became alive. He squinted at Yan Zhonghua, leaned forward and squeezed his chin frivolously, saying, “The existence of the big world has always been hidden — I’m afraid it’s not just because the Yan family wants to preserve their status, right? The Orthodox Dao and the secular dynasty originally were one and the same. They started to separate ten thousand years ago, and now they each manage their own affairs and rarely intervene in each other’s matters. Do you think that has something to do with the other big world?”
Yan Zhonghua shook You Ming’s hand with a smile, and said, “Since you know it, why are you still asking about it?”
You Ming said, “I want to see if you are honest, but I didn’t expect you to be really dishonest.”
Yan Zhonghua said, “Don’t you precisely like my dishonesty? ”
You Ming giggled, and his body fell into Yan Zhonghua’s arms.
Yan Tianhen, “…” If you guys are not my fathers, I will definitely throw you off the carriage.
Not only was he fed dog food, but he still didn’t understand anything about the big world and the reasons for it being hidden. He had never heard of it before.
You Ming had enough fun. He finally remembered Yan Tianhen, who was left aside by him, and said, “Darling, do you really want to know about the big world?”
Yan Tianhen’s head nodded like a chicken pecking at rice.
You Ming said, “Then cultivate hard. When you reach the peak of Earth Realm, you will know these things naturally.”
Yan Tianhen, “…. ”
Well, it’s probably not going to happen for 180 years.
You Ming said, “Let’s look at the other good things.”
Yan Tianhen counted a total of three things, in addition to the funny lube, there was a very ugly-looking dagger and what looked like a 6th-level demonic beast’s inner core.
Upon seeing this, You Ming took the dagger, and after pulling it away, he quickly cut it on his wrist.
It was deep to the point his bones could be seen.
“What are you doing?”
“Get the medicine, hurry!”
Yan Tianhen obviously didn’t expect that You Ming would perform an experiment on himself. He quickly took out the ointment used to heal wounds from his storage ring. He also took out a blood tonic pill and stuffed it into You Ming’s mouth.
“Aiya, why are you all so nervous.” You Ming watched Yan Zhonghua’s worried face while healing his wounds, and said with indifference, “I’m just trying to see if the dagger works well. Now it seems that your Father Emperor is really good to Ah Hen.”
After all, although You Ming’s skin and flesh were very soft and smooth to the touch, in fact, he had a genuine Tempered Thunder Demonic Constitution, and ordinary weapons couldn’t leave any marks on his skin.
This dagger really was a divine item.
You Ming wanted to put the dagger in front of his eyes to take a good look, but Yan Zhonghua decisively took it away.
Yan Tianhen had a headache. “Dad, can’t you save us the worry?”
You Ming touched his nose and said, “I just want to see if there is a stamp on it.”
Yan Zhonghua handed the dagger back to Yan Tianhen, who took it up and looked at it carefully. He raised his eyebrow and said, “There is a ‘Wen’ character on it.”
You Ming said, “So it was originally refined by Bai Wen, the Crafting Monarch. That’s why it could be so sharp. I’m afraid the material used for making this dagger is precious in heaven and earth, which is extremely difficult to find.”
Yan Zhonghua said, “The Crafting Monarch has stopped refining anything now. I’m afraid this dagger is unique.”
Yan Tianhen carefully put away the dagger and held it in his hand and stroked it.
Although the Purple Emperor was quite foolish sometimes, Yan Tianhen had to admit that he was kind to him. Ever since he returned to the capital eight years ago, he still didn’t not know how many rewards he had received from the Emperor.
The remaining demonic beast inner core had a bigger origin.
“This is probably a shark bead.” Yan Zhonghua was knowledgeable. He took it in his hand, looked at it, and said, “The shark clan has disappeared for many years, and the shark bead is also an extremely rare object. If you can refine it for your own use, then you can experience a great advancement in cultivation. With it, you can also swim in the sea without having to make any hand seals. Secondly, you can refine it into tools or pills.”
Yan Tianhen asked, “What if it’s used just like this?”
Yan Zhonghua said, “At least it can be used to guide the way and break through obstacles, and it can also illuminate.”
Yan Tianhen said with joy, “Lighting is the most useful function, I like it.”
Yan Zhonghua, “…”
It’s really a waste of this shark bead.
Not long after returning home, Gu Ruyu and Qi Feiqing both came over.
Qi Feiqing burst into laughter as soon as he saw Yan Tianhen and said, “I’m a cut sleeve. I can’t get hard for women. Hahaha. If I dare to say this, my brother will have to break my leg.”
Gu Ruyu nodded and said, “If my younger brother dares to say that, I will also break his leg.”
Yan Tianhern uttered a “Tut” and said, “Who let my dad set a precedent? And if I didn’t say so, I’ll have to marry that crazy woman.”
Gu Ruyu narrowed his eyes and said, “Do you really like men?”
Yan Tianhen thought for awhile and said, “It depends on the person.”
He thought, If Huarong Sword Immortal was a woman, then he would definitely like women.
Qi Feiqing said, “On our way to find you, we also ran into Yan Chenxiao’s group of people. He also deliberately spoke to us, so that those childish princes and buddies would stay away from you in the future, so as not to be taken by you. ”
Yan Tianhen touched his nose and said, “Oh, then he is really worried for nothing. I have high standards. I won’t ever take a fancy to his shallow and crooked friends.”
Gu Ruyu smiled and said, “How are you going to leave?”
Yan Tianhen said, “Originally, I planned to go with the main envoy, but now it seems that I’d better sneak away by myself, or else I’d be watched by that crazy woman.”
Every seven years, the entrance examination of Myriad Dao Academy took the clan or the family as the unit. It was natural that they would compete with each other to show off their financial power and influence. But there were also relatively low-key candidates who acted alone and passed in silence.
The Yan family had always made grand entrances. Just the guards who accompanied them alone numbered one thousand, and the mounts they used were all demonic beasts who had been tamed and were very obedient. Every single one of them looked prestigious and cool, which made them the center of attention.
The ostentation of the other Divine Clans naturally weren’t fat behind either. The best-looking was the bird clans. Their feathers were already beautiful and colorful to begin with. They were also beautiful when flying in the air. Moreover, the bird clans were also famous for their beauty. Among the candidates competing to get into Myriad Dao Academy, the best-looking beautiful boys and beautiful women all came from the bird clans.
Therefore, the annual recruitment of new disciples by Myriad Dao Academy was also a feast for the eyes.
However, this year, Yan Tianhen did not intend to go out to show his face. In any case, since he returned to the Nine Lands eight years ago and became recognized as the second-in-line heir, his name had been mentioned over and over again by the Nine Lands’ families.
If he wanted to be high-profile, he only needed to report his name, and there was no need to show off.
On the contrary, it was somewhat difficult for him to keep a low profile.
Qi Feiqing was very suspicious, “Going alone — can you do it?”
Yan Tianhen was not happy, saying, “How can you say that? Asking a man if he can do it alone. Are you asking to get beaten?”
Qi Feiqing, “Hahaha.“
