“That’s right. It wouldn’t be appropriate if such a genius doesn’t enter Genius Prefecture, after all, he’s a talent of Great Qian Empire,” Crown Prince nodded and spoke.
Upon hearing this, Yang Bufan snorted coldly in his heart. He was crystal clear about what these two individuals were thinking. Obviously, Jiang Chen’s existence had posed a great threat to them. They must be thinking of ways to get rid of Jiang Chen now. If Jiang Chen kept on staying in King Fan Prefecture, they would have no chance of eliminating this threat. Which was why they suggested to let Jiang Chen enter Genius Prefecture, the place where all geniuses of Great Qian Empire gathered. That place have the most intense competition. More importantly, Crown Prince and King Ping had deep-rooted influence in that Prefecture. As long as Jiang Chen entered Genius Prefecture, they would be able to find ways to deal with him.
Given Yang Bufan’s intelligence, how could the motive of these two escape his eyes?
“There’s no need for the both of you to worry about this. The King Conferring Ceremony is already over, and I have prepared a banquet, do you all want to have a few drinks?” offered Yang Bufan.
When he said that he wanted to have drinks with Crown Prince and King Ping, it also meant that he was chasing them off, because he knew that they wouldn’t be staying for any drinks.
“There’s no need for any drinks, I have originally come here to congratulate you. Since the King-Conferring Ceremony is already over, I won’t disturb you and your celebration anymore.”
After King Ping finished speaking, he turned and strode towards the exit. The other experts of King Ping Prefecture were at his heels. Soon, they were nowhere to be seen. The same went to the people of Crown Prince.
These people who had come looking for trouble had all disappeared in less than two minutes, like they had never been here. After Crown Prince left, the light barrier vanished. As for the corpse of Fu Wei, it had already been carried away by the people of King Ping before they left. In any case, Fu Wei came here with King Ping. If King Ping didn’t order to take away the corpse as well, his people would be demoralized by it. Given King Ping’s shrewdness, how could he allow such a thing to happen?
Furthermore, Fu Wei had another identity. He was an expert of Divine Line Sect. King Ping still had to give face to Divine Line Sect no matter what. Plus, the old man of Fu Wei, Fu Kui, was an Immortal Emperor. Currently, both of his sons were dead. It was already imaginable that the corpse of Fu Wei would definitely anger that tiger, and he would only have one goal in the future – to kill Jiang Chen.
Having witnessed the threat of Jiang Chen, King Ping would never let go of any possibility to get rid of Jiang Chen, and Fu Kui was one of those possibilities.
After they left, a hearty laughter resounded in King Fan Prefecture. Today, King Fan Prefecture was surely destined to be festive. To King Fan, today was an incomparably important day. Everything that happened in the prefecture today was going to spread across the entire Imperial Capital very soon, then across the Great Qian Empire, and even across the whole Eastern Profound Domain.
Yang Bufan knew that plenty of them were watching him from behind the scenes when he was crowned as king. There was the Emperor of the Great Qian Empire, Yang Zanqing, and many other higher ups. If he wasn’t able to handle the pressure of Crown Prince and King Ping, he would certainly disappoint many of them, but now, it seemed like he didn’t disappoint any of them. It was already imaginable that his and Jiang Chen’s reputation would soon be the popular topic of all in the capital.
The prefecture was filled with dancing, singing, and drinking like crazy. Instead of taking part in it, Jiang Chen let Wu Ningzhu and Big Yellow represent him. As for himself, he had already gone into the thirty-third level of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. His advancement to the half-step Immortal King realm this time had allowed him to obtain tremendous benefits, especially the essence of the Snow-Jade King Ginseng which he had yet to refine completely. He needed some time to fully stabilize his cultivation base at the half-step Immortal King realm, and the thirty-third level was the best place for cultivation.
“Being a Venerable Grade Spiritual Herb, the Snow-Jade King Ginseng is too beneficial to me, allowing me to advance to another level. Instead of affecting my foundation, it had improved it. I can only keep this kindness of Brother Yang in my heart for now.”
Jiang Chen muttered. The fact that Yang Bufan gifted the Snow-Jade King Ginseng to him today was a huge surprise. He was crystal clear about the value of this ginseng. It was one of the treasured collection of Yang Zanqing.
Jiang Chen had taken two days in the pagoda to fully stabilize his cultivation and condense another 20 000 dragon marks with the remaining medicinal power of the spiritual herb, reaching a total of 1 070 000 dragon marks. He would only need 30 000 more dragon marks to truly advance to the Immortal King realm, however he wasn’t in a hurry to advance. Immortal King realm was another threshold. It would be no use even if he rushed it. He had to ensure that he had a solid foundation before making the advancement.
He withdrew his Qi, casually tidied himself up and walked out of the pagoda. After two days in the pagoda, the banquet had ended.
In Jiang Chen’s quiet courtyard, Yang Bufan had been waiting since the end of the banquet. Yang Bufan knew that Jiang Chen had a mysterious treasure, so he didn’t feel surprised to see Jiang Chen appearing out of nowhere.
“Brother, if it wasn’t for you today, I would have thoroughly lost my face as a new king,” said Yang Bufan with a smile.
Only he understood the most how much benefits Jiang Chen had brought him. This matter alone allowed him to set a stable foothold in Great Qian Empire, and from now on, anyone who saw him would have to be respectful and wouldn’t dare show any neglect.
“Brother Yang has given me such a precious treasure. If I still couldn’t win the match, I would be extremely sorry.”
Jiang Chen only smiled, but didn’t express the gratitude that he felt. Since Yang Bufan had already regarded him as his brother, he didn’t need to be so polite. There were some things that didn’t need to be expressed, or else it would make him feel like an outsider. He believed that Yang Bufan was also the same as him. Only people with similar temperament could be true friends.
“Don’t you try to bring that up. Do you have any idea how painful I felt when I gave the Snow-Jade King Ginseng to you directly? That was given by the Master of Prefecture. However, I have already given it to you even before I could consume it.””
Yang Bufan curled his lips, feeling that he had suffered a great loss. Of course, he was only making a joke. Treasures were merely worldly possessions that could be obtained again in the future.
“Don’t worry, Brother Yang. Wait until you advance to the Immortal Emperor realm, an even better and more precious spiritual herb will emerge,” Jiang Chen said.
“Brother Yang, we haven’t gotten the chance to have a drink yet. In that case, I will get you a bowl of fine wine. You’ll surely be interested in it.” Jiang Chen chuckled.
