I Have the Alchemy Emperor in My Head - Chapter 1352
1352 The Imperial Court Bows It Head
This time, many truly understood how much influence a top-notch expert could have on the Imperial Court. It was also the focus of most people’s attention. After all, although Chu Yunfan beat the second prince badly, he still represented Great Wei.
Besides the mighty Imperial Guardians and the number one guardian of the imperial family, there were also top-notch experts like General Ye Fei in the hands of Great Wei. They were almost above the Core Council regarding strength.
Undoubtedly, Great Wei would not allow Chu Yunfan to kill the second prince, no matter what. After all, it was related to the face of the Great Wei’s Imperial Court.
Chu Yunfan’s threatening rise and reckless killing intent had already terrified the Imperial Court. Therefore, the Imperial Court would never give in. Still, he probably would not let the matter rest judging from Chu Yunfan’s style of doing things. In everyone’s eyes, not even Mi Siyuan, Atela, or even the powerful Blood King could deal with him.
Chu Yunfan’s best option was to avoid the attack. However, he did not have such thoughts as he was decisive and ruthless. He had even said he would not let the mastermind off the hook. It would not be easy to make him back down.
Someone reacted almost immediately. Although they did not know who spread the news, there was no doubt they wanted to expose the conflict between Chu Yunfan and Great Wei.
Both sides could still have a way out if the matter were not exposed, but everything had become public. The contradiction between the two sides appeared before everyone, forcing both sides to become stubborn.
Someone wanted to use Chu Yunfan to kill the second prince or use Great Wei’s power to kill Chu Yunfan. No matter which it was, it was apparent they had ulterior motives. However, neither side seemed to be willing to bow. Everyone awaited the final showdown. Chu Yunfan’s attitude would determine whether or not the two sides would have a collision of the century.
Although Chu Yunfan seemed to be alone and only Marquis Zhongxin’s residence might stand on his side on this issue, Chu Yunfan was already the most significant deterrent. None could underestimate him. Even the Imperial Court had to treat him seriously as long as he was around.
This was extremely difficult for the various significant forces in the south of Great Wei. If this matter had not been exposed, they could have chosen to cooperate with Marquis Zhongxin without any obstacles and curry favor with Chu Yunfan.
Still, everyone had no choice but to overthink after Chu Yunfan unexpectedly killed several powerful enemies in succession. Moreover, the last behemoth to appear was the Imperial Court.
The power of Great Wei was even more terrifying than all the powerful enemies Chu Yunfan had killed before. If Chu Yunfan refused to bow, it would be a life-and-death struggle. No matter which side they joined, it would not be the most suitable choice.
The entire situation remained strangely calm momentarily. Everyone thought the situation was about to break out when news came from the Imperial Capital. The emperor of Great Wei had proclaimed to imprison the second prince for five years.
Great Wei was in an immediate uproar about the news. No one expected the final result to end up like that. They thought the Imperial Court would never give in but it ultimately did.
Although the Imperial Court said nothing, everyone knew it was trying to show goodwill to Chu Yunfan by facing the wall and imprisoning the second prince. Though the second prince’s faction was strong, it had no leader now. The other prince’s forces would probably devour them five years later. This also indirectly indicated the Imperial Court’s intention.
They were unwilling to have direct contact with Chu Yunfan. After all, someone with ill intentions would take advantage of them if that happened. That was something neither Chu Yunfan nor Great Wei was willing to face.
While everyone was unaware, a secret ambassador from Great Wei had snuck into Marquis Zhongxin’s residence.
Chu Yunfan wore a black robe as he sat opposite the director in the residence’s back garden. The former repeatedly performed hand seals, producing waves of divine power that surged into the director’s head.
The director felt his internal injury healing. His chronic illness had plagued him for many years. He could never cure it even if he suppressed it with his potent cultivation. He was almost in despair and did not think there was hope for a cure.
Chu Yunfan retracted his power after a long while and sighed. Then he said, “I’ve treated most of your injury. I’ll give you a prescription for the rest. You can take this medicine according to the prescription. You’ll recover fully after half a year. You can enter the Core Stage by then.”
The director opposite Chu Yunfan revealed an excited expression despite himself. Finally, he had a chance to break through. With his accumulated cultivation over the years, he would have been in the Core Stage long ago without this hidden injury. Now that Chu Yunfan had healed him, it was equivalent to giving him a new life.
Even though Chu Yunfan did it to repay him for the information he had supplied about Blood King, the latter knew that a piece of information from Blood King was not worth Chu Yunfan’s help. Although it was a piece of cake for Chu Yunfan, it was a matter of life and death for him.
“Thank you for your help, Master Chu!” the director hurriedly said.
Chu Yunfan looked at the director with a faint smile and said, “It’s what I promised you. It’s nothing much. However, you didn’t come here just for this, right? Tell me, what did the Imperial Court say?”
“Master Chu, I’m here on the Imperial Court’s behalf. His Majesty already knows about the matter between you and the second prince. His Majesty hopes you can let the second prince go,” the director slowly said.
