Chapter 947: Who Is Lu Shou?
The moment this name appeared, Lu Yunge felt his heart jump. He crushed the railing in front of him with his palm.
How was she the second position?
Shouldn’t that bitch be suffering over at the Nether Jail? Why was she chosen as a Princess by this stone plaque?
Even 20 years ago, before the whole incident and before she was imprisoned, she was only ranked fourth.
A year in the Nether Jail was equal to 10 years of lifespan being used up. This woman had at most a few decades left to live!
However, why did she become the Second Princess within the Sky Burning Saint Dynasty?
What was going on over at the Nine Extreme Death Jail?
Why wasn’t there any news at all from Lu Tianqing, that old ghost? Why didn’t he even say anything?
The square below exploded out. Everyone couldn’t help but exchange glances with one another as they engaged in hot discussion.
“Lu Hanyan, which Lu Hanyan is it?”
“Which one can it be? It is most probably the granddaughter of the current Sky Burning Saint Emperor and the once Saint Dynasty Princess.”
“But since the incident 20 years ago, wasn’t she punished and chased out of the family, her Princess position taken from her and she was imprisoned at the Nine Extreme Death Jail?”
“God knows what happened? Did something occur?”
“Did you all notice that the Yanyuan Saint Venerable bloodline took up 30% of the 108 Princes?”
“That is really true! So the descendants of Yanyuan Saint Venerable obtained the most benefits from this Bloodline Retracement?”
“Why do I feel like a storm is about to arrive, that a huge change is about to occur?”
The discussion noises were exactly what Lu Yunge was thinking about in his heart.
He listened on quietly, his face turned green and then it became extremely dark.
Lu Daoyan was also stunned, he muttered, “Hanyan? How is it Hanyan? She came back and is ranked second…”
He seemed to have thought about something, he couldn’t help but laugh out loud, “Good that she is back! Good that she is back! I feel relieved! Cousin Yunge, this is such a joyous matter, what do you think?”
However, they still weren’t clear about the reason for the position changes and how Lu Hanyan’s name appeared there.
But he knew that the situation within the Saint Dynasty was definitely going to change!
Lu Hanyan was once again listed among the choices of heirs. In other words, her sentence was most probably cleared and she wouldn’t be a sinner of the family anymore.
The matter that year could be overturned!
If not, she wouldn’t have obtained the recognition of the Lu Family Ancestral Temple and the Saint Plaque.
However, without one or two experts within the family supporting her, how could she get her sentence removed?
The Sky Burning Saint Emperor also wouldn’t need to go into seclusion because of her.
Even if he didn’t rise up once more, the disciples of the bloodline wouldn’t be so weak till they were bullied.
The joy in his heart was tough to describe.
“I know that you always had a wish in your heart. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to do it!”
Lu Yunge’s wish was obviously to become either a Country Ruler or the Saint Emperor to suppress Lu Hanyan and the people around her and make her bloodline never see the light of day ever again.
Over 20 years, he had a lot of grievances rising up within his heart. Now that he had a chance to vent, naturally he feared nothing.
Lu Yunge scoffed, he really wanted to smack this noisy fly to death!
Country Ruler Xuanhua let this person live and allowed him to have a spot among the 9 Princes to take care of Yanyuan Saint Venerable’s face, in case Sky Burning Saint Emperor Lu Beiwu became anxious. In the Yanyuan bloodline, he was the most useless one!
However, at this moment, he felt that this person was really annoying!
If he had a chance, he would definitely kill this person and ensure that he had no place to be buried.
A violent intent flashed on Lu Yunge’s face and then he slowly calmed down.
He could only bear with it. Before all the matters were clear, it wasn’t time for him to act up.
His hands clenched tight as Lu Yunge waited quietly for the final name to appear.
The Saint Plaque stopped for a moment before the red light started to gather once more.
At first, it was a Lu word that attracted everyone’s attention. Then, a single Shou word appeared.
“Lu Shou, who is Lu Shou?”
Lu Daoyan was totally lost and didn’t know what to do.
This Lu Shou name was really unfamiliar and he recalled that this person didn’t exist in the Saint Dynasty.
However, he suddenly recalled having heard of the name somewhere before and it was quite recent too.
All of a sudden, he was totally lost, he couldn’t remember who this person was or where he heard the name from.
Lu Yunge’s body shook, the last bit of blood in his face disappeared.
He was dispirited and his body stumbled as he took several steps back.
…Lu Shou, the son of Lu Hanyan! This person they recognized had Dual Meridian Body, Broken Soul Body, a bastard with impure blood that couldn’t cultivate!
He was the person who advanced to the purest Lu Family blood!
So that was the case! So that was the case!
Everything made sense right away.
No wonder Lu Hanyan could be ranked second! The mother was valuable because of the son?
After the Blood Retracement, that bitch naturally received the most benefits.
Giving birth to a kid with the purest bloodline of the Lu Family, this woman naturally contributed to the family in a huge way.
However, how did that bastard known as Lu Shou or Zong Shou, have the World Burning Blood?
Didn’t they say that the only way the bloodline can become purer is if relatives within the same race marry?
This was really an eye-opener!
Such thoughts flashed in Lu Yunge’s mind.
At this moment, it was really bustling in front of the Saint Plaque.
“Lu Shou, who is Lu Shou?”
“Forget about Lu Hanyan getting cleared of her sins and becoming ranked second. Who is this Lu Shou?”
“I have never heard of him!”
“There really wasn’t such a person within the Sky Burning Saint Dynasty…”
“No! I remember that not long ago his name appeared within the direct bloodline name list, I think he was ranked seventeenth!”
“Is that so? I haven’t returned in a long time, so I didn’t know that there were such changes.”
“You are too ignorant! During these two years, he shocked our Lu Family, but we have only heard of his name and have never seen him. His ranking wasn’t that high, so not many people cared.”
“Which bloodline raised up this person, for him to actually be hidden for so long! When he didn’t do anything, he didn’t make any noise but when he announces himself, he shocked the world!”
“I heard that Lu Shou is actually Lu Hanyan’s kid and that outer race person gave birth to…”
“Are you joking? Lu Hanyan willingly committed that mistake to search for a so-called Monster Race Seven-Tailed Sky Fox Bloodline native of the Cloud World to marry. It is good if that kid wasn’t tortured to death by the bloodline conflict!”
In the building, Lu Daoyan came to his senses. He couldn’t suppress his emotions and laughed out loud maniacally. His voice was really loud, shaking the 10 miles of space around the Ancestral Temple.
“Lu Shou, Lu Shou! Isn’t that Zong Shou? My cousin’s kid! To be able to let Hanyan break free and become ranked second, if not for that kid, then who else can do that? The trash in your eyes is the only pureblood in the Lu Family who grasps the World Burning Blood Eye! When you all schemed against the Saint Emperor, did you expect such a day to arrive?”
Lu Yunge was beside him and his teeth were nearly shattered from how hard he was biting down on them.
The people in the hall were all deathly silent, no one dared to speak, all of them just exchanged glances with one another.
The Lu Family disciples were all smart people and knew that if it as Lu Daoyan said, then a storm was truly about to arrive.
The few powers within the Saint Dynasty were about to change once more.
At this moment, they had to be careful with every word they spoke and every action they did.
All the battles concerned the higher-ups. If they stepped in, they would be shattered if they weren’t careful.
A portion of their gazes fluctuated.
Having the only pureblood, the top Prince of the Saint Dynasty, he was pretty much at an unbeatable position!
Thus, within the area in front of the Ancestral Temple, only the laughter of Lu Daoyan remained.
Until a cold chiding spread out from the sky, “Shut up!”
A strong Spiritual Sense shot over and a person appeared above the Saint Plaque.
Lu Daoyan instantly held his breath. He felt like his soul was about to be shattered by his Spiritual Sense! He was actually unable to say anything at all!
Lu Yunge relaxed. It seemed like Country Ruler Xuanhua had arrived!
20 years ago during that tough situation, when Lu Beiwu pretty much controlled everything, this person managed to turn the scales to force him to retreat.
The situation was far better than the previous years!
However, at this moment, another person appeared above the Saint Temple.
He was also really handsome and majestic, he wasn’t angry but he gave off an unspeakable aura.
The moment this person arrived, the Spiritual Sense pressing on Lu Daoyan was forced away.
He also scolded, “How unbecoming of you to make such noise in front of the Saint Plaque, go to the Punishment Hall to receive your punishment!”
Lu Daoyan wasn’t shocked and annoyed but instead looked over totally stunned.
Sky Burning Saint Emperor Lu Beiwu!
He was actually not in secluded meditation. After 20 years, he appeared out in front of people.
Emotions surged in his chest. He suppressed them and bowed solemnly, “I know my mistakes, I will listen to Emperor!”
Lu Beiwu didn’t bother, staring at the names Lu Hanyan and Lu Shou on the top of the Saint Plaque.
His expression didn’t change but his eyes fluctuated.
Along with those two people arriving, dozens more appeared in the skies above the square.
The place became even more deathly silent. The people standing in the sky were all Country Rulers, the Heads of the Five Halls or the Saint Realm Elders of the Saint Dynasty. Their positions were really high and they were all strong, their cultivations all at least at the Saint Realm.
Such that the hundreds of thousands of Lu Family disciples around found it tough to breathe.
They all sneakily raised their heads to look at their expressions to try to guess the situation.
Most of them didn’t show their joy or rage on their faces. However, there was a portion who did.
At this moment, a voice rang out, “Can Saintess explain to us? Who is Lu Shou? This person has no achievements in our Lu Family, so how can he steal the top heir spot?”
