Chapter 948: Fangjue Causing Problems
“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?”
The moment these words were spoken, dozens of sharp gazes looked over.
The person who spoke was also really calm. Even with dozens of Saint Realm Experts staring at him, he wasn’t nervous at all.
Lu Yunge’s eyes were filled with an impressed gaze.
The five criteria for the Lu Family heir annoyed him.
No matter how many contributions he was responsible for, how many experts he crushed in so many battlefields…
However, in the final rankings he felt like he didn’t get what he deserved. Sometimes, no matter how much he did, he couldn’t compare to the slight bloodline increase of others…
Many things that occurred today made him very unhappy!
The Sky Burning Saintess in front of the Ancestral Temple kept silent for a moment before she spoke up under the gazes of hundreds of thousands of eyes.
“There are five criteria to inherit the throne; blood, merit, talent, strength, and relation?”
Her voice was really airy, spreading out to each and every corner.
“In terms of closeness, Lu Shou is the Son of Lu Hanyan, the only Great Grandson of the current Sky Burning Saint Emperor! In terms of blood, he has obtained the purest blood, the World Burning Blood Eye as confirmed by Extreme Flame and Yanyuan Saint Venerable. In terms of talent, he stepped into Celestial Realm at 20. That is unprecedented in the tens of thousands of years of the Lu Family. In terms of strength, he has an End Realm Saint Venerable as his Master, the disciple of Cloud World Dragon Shadow. In terms of merit…”
She paused and she didn’t say anything more. She looked coldly at everyone around.
Everyone here knew what she meant and they all kept silent.
In terms of merit, due to his pure blood, the bloodline retraced such that all the Lu Family disciples obtained even purer blood. It also meant that the Lu Family didn’t need to worry about the bloodline for the next few thousand years.
Many God Realm and Saint Realm Experts were able to have a chance to improve due to this retracement.
In terms of merit, he had contributed greatly!
Compared to someone opening up another 10 worlds, he benefited the race more.
Moreover, since a few thousand years ago, the Lu Family territory hadn’t increased.
Lu Daoyan laughed, “Cousin Yunge, I think you should cast aside your thoughts. Your small bit of merit, if it was a few thousand years ago, it wouldn’t even be much. To think you feel wrong? How funny! If not for Country Ruler Xuanhua taking care of you, how can such trash whom even your fiancée neglected become second? Compared to us, my Nephew who climbed out from the dirt with no help and helped the whole family, what are you?”
He hated the threats from Lu Yunge just now and at this moment he didn’t hold anything back. He was as blunt and direct as he could be.
He didn’t mask his voice and let the people around hear what he said.
As a result, more and more gazes cast toward Lu Yunge.
They were either pitying him or gloating or mocking. However, some of them felt bad for him.
It made him feel more furious and he just couldn’t take it. It was like there was a thorn within that couldn’t be pulled out. He really couldn’t take the cold intent and the other people looking down on him.
Luckily, the person who spoke just now in front of the Saint Plaque spoke once more.
It drew everyone’s attention over once again.
“Then, why was Lu Hanyan able to become second? Are you going to tell us that it is because she gave birth to a Pure Bloodline Descendant?”
He didn’t fear the gazes of the Saint Dynasty Venerables at all.
The Sky Burning Saintess raised her eyes. Her jade-like cold eyes were brimming with life.
“Mothers are important because of their sons, so why not? Since he is the only Pureblood, then his Mother is naturally the second most important person and also has benefited the whole race. Moreover, after she entered the Death Jail, her cultivation didn’t stop. Half a day ago, she had entered God Realm with Extreme Flame Saint Venerable’s supervision! Sky Burning Saint Plaque is a top treasure and was made by the ancestors. It has always been fair, so you don’t have to worry!”
No one cared about the last few words. Everyone was attracted to her saying “with Extreme Flame Saint Venerable’s supervision”.
He helped her? In other words, Saint Venerable had made his stand clear.
Was he going to join hands with Yanyuan Saint Venerable?
It wasn’t just 2 End Realm Saint Venerables, but 2 proper bloodlines in the Saint Dynasty, dozens of Elders and at least 2 Country Rulers and 2 Saint Hall powers working together!
At this moment, even Lu Yunge’s face turned white. Only Lu Xuanhua was really calm, his expression didn’t change.
The Sky Burning Saintess paused, hesitating a little before saying, “The 2 Saint Venerables also said that she suffered from the restrictions and due to her son’s bloodline, she has signs of advancing. Although it wouldn’t be the Pureblood, it can still help our Lu Family. There is also one more matter which; Lu Tianqing has allowed the Nether Jail to be destroyed due to his neglect. He then tried to kill the top Heir. Yanyuan Saint Venerable killed him in rage and has already reported to the Punishment Hall. His family will be sent over to the Death Jail!”
A loud clamor instantly spread out across the white square.
100,000 people were in an uproar.
Only people like Lu Daoyan who were closer in the bloodline were calmer and unsurprised.
He thought to himself that the movement after the Retracement Power had ended.
The other people were all at a loss and also filled with anticipation.
It wasn’t easy for the bloodline to become purer. Lu Shou was already a miracle and they didn’t have much hope for anything else.
However, to be able to cause the bloodline to retrace to the entire race and also to such a large extent…
No wonder! No wonder the Saint Plaque would choose Lu Hanyan who was locked up for 20 years to be the second Heir!
At this moment, no one cared about what the Sky Burning Saintess said about Lu Tianqing.
Only Lu Yunge was terrified and thought back to all the things that happened that day.
Lu Tianqing has sensed something but he wasn’t wary enough.
He raised his head and looked into the sky, only to see Xuanhua and Xuanye both had cold expressions. Xuanhua’s face was totally dark.
Their gazes were filled with killing intent as they looked at that person in the crowd who questioned the Saintess.
Lu Yunge was really smart, he was slightly startled and knew the reason.
This person looked like he was unhappy and asking but actually he had intentions!
One could see his intentions in asking these questions in front of everyone. He wanted to shake their hearts, to raise the momentum of the mother and son?
This person should be killed!
The moment such a thought rose up, a majestic, leisurely voice rang out in the sky.
“20 years ago, due to marrying and giving birth, she was deemed to be a sinner. Now, she is the second Heir. That kid who was said to have insulted our bloodline, is actually the only Pureblood apart from End Realm Experts! Thinking about it, did the Punishment Hall Head rush into things?”
Lu Yunge looked out and his eyes twisted.
It was Fangjue, the current Cangyan Hall Head!
Apart from rage, his heart turned ice cold!
20 years ago, the Punishment Hall Head was Xuanhua. Were the spear of his words pointing right at him for failing his duty?
Did he want to retrial the case?
Xuanhua’s gaze was ice-cold as he looked over.
Fangjue didn’t bother and just laughed coldly.
“Due to this preposterous punishment, our Pureblood Heir, future End Realm is still outside and can’t return to the Saint Dynasty. What an eye-opener. At least he didn’t die early and struggled till today. Otherwise, how great of a loss would it be for us?”
Xuanhua’s brow rose up like he wanted to speak, but he stopped himself like he was totally speechless.
He looked around at the dozens of gazes. There were people blaming him and some warning him.
He didn’t argue, scoffing and waving his sleeves with a cold laugh.
He didn’t care about Fangjue’s words and just walked into the air.
Xuanye who was standing in the air sighed. He had a weird expression on his face. Who knew what he was thinking about.
Lu Wubei was really calm, still looking at the two names at the top like he could see the two of them through their names…
“So you want to serve me?”
Outside of the shattered Nether Jail Space, Zong Shou sized up Yexuan.
He would be lying if he said that he wasn’t interested. Although he hadn’t personally witnessed his sword skills, as a Sword Cultivator his senses were really sharp.
The person in front of him was the purest swordsman.
His sword techniques were top-notch and he should have reached the Peak Spirit Realm. Just half a step and his sword would be able to reach the Enlightened Realm, which was how he understood and knew how to apply, enabling him to form the Dao…
His strength was probably several times stronger than Aokun before he grasped the Existence Law and advanced to God Realm!
He definitely could take a single sword from this person.
With Yexuan by his side, it would be like having a super strong expert following him.
He would be able to deal with anyone he wasn’t happy with. As long as it wasn’t End Realm, they could handle normal Saint Realm Venerables.
However, he knew that his small strength couldn’t accept such a strong person.
How could he control such a strong sword expert? He was also unable to make this person loyal to him.
After thinking about it for a moment, Zong Shou shook his head.
“If you want to serve the top Heir of the Sky Burning Dynasty, the Lu Family Young Master, then I am afraid I can’t allow that. If you want to join the Great Gan Celestial Dynasty, I am currently really weak and can’t accept such a top expert like you.”
What a joke, Lu Wubing still had hundreds of Celestial cultivators in that tray.
He already found it tough to raise those.
At least, in a short time, he had to take down more than 20 small-sized worlds to be sufficient.
He couldn’t afford one more Peak God Realm Expert, even if he sold himself.
