I Have the Alchemy Emperor in My Head - Chapter 1353
1353 The Imperial Court’s Compensation
Chu Yunfan glanced at the director and said, “Why should I? Or rather, do you think I’ll chase after him?”
The director glanced at Chu Yunfan and said, “Master Chu, you should understand the agency has already collected much information. Our analysts say you won’t let it go so easily.”
The director spoke bluntly as these were not secrets. No matter which Core was born, the agency would collect much information about them. It was just that the agency would have kept its eyes on ordinary people long ago, unlike Chu Yunfan, who appeared without warning.
According to the information they had received, Chu Yunfan was narrow-minded and would not be generous enough to let go of an enemy who had framed him. He would repay both kindness and revenge.
Even the Imperial Court found such a person troublesome. This time, it unprecedentedly lowered its head. This was beyond everyone’s expectations. The Imperial Court had ever only acquiesced in the face of a colossus like the Core Council and had lowered its head.
Chu Yunfan took the initiative to deal with the second prince because the latter had caused trouble everywhere and provoked a monster like Chu Yunfan. The second prince also wanted Chu Yunfan to bow.
That was out of everyone’s expectations, even the director’s. He knew the emperor’s character well. The emperor had grown accustomed to being domineering, and no one could make him lower his head.
Chu Yunfan was the first to make the emperor bow since the latter overtook power. Although Chu Yunfan was formidable in ordinary people’s eyes, the First Guardian of the imperial family and General Ye Fei should be above Chu Yunfan. They would not lower their heads to Chu Yunfan. At most, they tacitly agreed to this matter and waited for things to calm down.
However, the director finally understood why. It was primarily because Chu Yunfan’s method of uprooting the Great Formless Sect was too shocking. Although he did not know what magic weapon Chu Yunfan used, it was undoubtedly one that even a Core could not resist.
Once the explosion swept them, they would almost certainly die. If Chu Yunfan used such a magic weapon to bombard the Imperial Capital, it would probably raze it to the ground. That was the reason why they feared Chu Yunfan.
It was insufficient for Chu Yunfan alone to make the Imperial Court afraid or even lower their heads. However, the Imperial Court would have no choice but to bow and give in if a nuclear bomb was added to the equation. They did not want to force Chu Yunfan into a corner. If such a thing happened, it would end in a life-and-death situation. They did not want to pay such a huge price.
Chu Yunfan quickly understood what the Imperial Court feared. He smiled over using the nuclear bomb to scare others. Now that he had achieved this effect, he knew his previous choice was correct. Otherwise, he would have used hundreds of nuclear bombs to deal with the Great Formless sect. After all, he could decide whether or not to kill the Great Formless Sect’s ordinary people.
“There’s a chance I can let him go, but what benefits can you offer?” Chu Yunfan smiled.
He intended to kill the second prince, whom he had never met, but he was not hard up about it. The second prince resembled a stay dog to him. Without Mi Siyuan and Blood King’s support, others would swallow up the second prince’s power sooner or later. To kill or not to kill was just a matter of words. Hence, it would be best if Chu Yunfan could use it to exchange for good benefits.
“The Imperial Court will tacitly acknowledge the influence your residence has on the south of Great Wei. They will be allowed to take over all the connections and benefits of the Great Formless Sect,” the director slowly said.
Chu Yunfan responded lightly, “That’s the spoils of war I deserve. You can’t move me with this alone.”
The director exclaimed, “Don’t be too aggressive, Master Chu. It’s not good for you to force the Imperial Court like that.”
Chu Yunfan replied, “What’s wrong with that? I’ll just leave if you force me into a corner.”
“Y-You…” Chu Yunfan’s words choked the director. After a long while, the latter finally said, “As far as I know, you have yet to enter the Core Stage, Master Chu.”
“You’re right. But how does that affect the state of the human body?” Chu Yunfan asked lightly. Increasing numbers of people knew he was not in the core stage the more he attacked. No one was foolish and knew there was a difference between Divine and Core techniques.
The director knew about this but did not know what to say when he saw Chu Yunfan readily admitting it. “Of course not, but it mustn’t be easy if you want to enter the Core Stage.”
The director was almost unbeatable in the Divine Ability Stage, like Chu Yunfan. Naturally, it was more challenging for him to advance further than ordinary people.
Chu Yunfan narrowed his eyes, saying, “What are you trying to say? Speak your mind.”
The director replied, “Do you know about Spirit Spring Water, Master Chu?”
“Spirit Spring Water? You have some?” Chu Yunfan immediately widened his eyes because he found its records in the Alchemy Emperor’s memories.
Spirit Spring Water was rare spring water that was versatile. If he used it to concoct pills, he could improve the quality of pills by a considerable level. If one used it to assist cultivation, it would significantly increase one’s cultivation speed. Most importantly, the Spirit Spring Water could release one’s full potential.
Chu Yunfan had already reached the ninth tier of the Divine Abilities Stage but had to reach the peak if he wanted to take another step forward. He could only break through to the Core Stage by reaching the peak of the Divine Abilities Stage. He had to release all his body’s potential to reach the peak of the Divine Abilities Stage.
