Zu An felt the emperors aura lock onto him.
It felt as if he might silence him if he spoke even a single wrong word.
Zu An cursed inside, you think youre all that just because your cultivation is high!
But he quickly let it go.
Having a high cultivation indeed made you special.
At the very least, there was nothing he could do about it right now.
He bowed and said, “Replying to your majesty.
I have not received any information regarding the Devil Sects sect master yet.”
The emperor harrumphed in dissatisfaction.
“Then whats the use in sending you into the Devil Sect”
Zu An was extremely unhappy.
Wasnt this guy too impatient “Your majesty, even though this subject didnt find any news regarding the Devil Sects sect master, I have discovered that the Devil Sect has a secret hideout in the capital.”
This was something he agreed on after discussing it with Yun Jianyue.
Even though Yun Jianyue didnt know that he shouldered this mission of infiltration, she didnt mind helping him out with this.
After all, from her point of view, Zu An ended up provoking a lot of danger from helping her, so helping him in this way gave him an extra layer of protection.
As for that secret hideout, it was obviously a chess piece that was prepared ahead of time.
“Oh” The emperors expression thus eased a bit.
“Youve done well.
Use your status as an Embroidered Envoy later to dig out that hideout.”
“Understood!” Zu An bowed.
He thought to himself that this emperor really was careful. Hes making me investigate the location I provided.
If I only found a deserted place with nothing inside, then he will start to suspect me.
You think youre already one step ahead, but Im five steps ahead of you! I already predicted that you would think this.
There are quite a few Devil Sect members there, and many of them are even higher level figures! Of course, these are all those of factions that oppose Yun Jianyue.
She definitely wouldnt mind using the emperors forces to wipe them out for good.
These are all old foxes, I tell ya!
Even though Zu An was mocking the emperor, he was also praising Yun Jianyue.
She looked like a goddess from the clouds, yet her schemes were extremely vicious.
He thought to himself that he really had to be careful around these people, or else hell end up getting scammed really badly.
The emperor nodded in satisfaction.
Then, he pretended to ask inadvertently, “Right, I heard that you and King Qis heir had a dispute Do you know what kind of crime offending a great member of the court is!”
“This subject was accused wrongly!” Zu An quickly said, “It wasnt me who wanted to offend him, but rather that he framed me.”
He explained the plan of King Qis heir to the emperor.
“Zhao Zhi seems to have inherited some of his fathers wit.
Unfortunately, he is still a bit too young.” The emperor sneered.
However, his eyes carried more praise when he looked at Zu An.
“I didnt expect you to see through all of this, and you even made him suffer for it.
Youre quite the sharp kid.”
Zu An knew that the emperor probably felt absolutely amazing when he saw how hard he was resisting the urge to laugh.
After all, his battle against King Qi during these years has only been difficult.
It has been a long while since he saw King Qis side suffer such a huge loss.
He used this chance while the emperors mood was good to force a bitter expression.
“But now, Ive already completely offended Kign Qis side.
Ill really be dead if King Qi tries to get revenge now.”
Knowing King Qi, he wont act directly against you but rather make use of someone else.
If you can even deal with Zhao Zhi and Han Fengqiu, then who else can do anything to you” The emperor had a pleased expression on his face.
He thought to himself that he still underestimated this little fella! Judging from how he is developing, even if he isnt able to pass on that fake manual to King Qi, hell still be of great use.
This brat has really tormented King Qi quite a bit during these past few days.
Zu An sighed in relief.
The emperor didnt promise anything, but he knew that he definitely wouldnt let King Qi do anything to him directly.
The strong opposition he showed against King Qis faction wasnt only done because he was forced to, he also did it to show off to the emperor.
Only by proving that he had ability and that he could never live under the same sky as King Qi, would this man completely trust him and be willing to protect him, rather than use him like a disposable chess piece.
“By the way, why was there suddenly a large ball of water” The emperor asked in a seemingly nonchalant manner.
Zu An trembled.
This matter had just taken place, yet the emperor already heard about all the details! The reports of Embroidered Envoys really are accurate.
Thank god I prepared ahead of time!
He immediately replied with a surprised expression, “Ah, I thought that it was your respected self who sent an expert to protect me.”
The emperors breathing stopped.
He grunted in reply and didnt try to explain himself, as if he really did send someone to protect Zu An.
At the same time, he began to wonder to himself which power ended up protecting Zu An.
The Chu clan But Chu Zhongtian is only at the eighth rank.
He doesnt have the strength to protect Zu An at all.
Could it be that there is another power I dont know of that has joined this battle
As the emperor, he didnt like these unknown variables.
However, continuing to question Zu An further didnt seem like it would produce any results.
As such, he changed his question and asked, “Why did Yu Yanluo invite you inside her carriage”
He didnt ask why Yu Yanluo would help Zu An, because she was precisely the one who asked him to keep Zu An alive.
That was why he knew that Zu An saved her before.
Zu An noticed the bit of jealousy in his voice and thought to himself, Yu Yanluo really has a lot of simps! Other simps might be fine, but this is the most ferocious and vicious simp! You have to be careful, or else he might just do something crazy out of jealousy.
He quickly explained, “It might be because I saved her back then in Brightmoon City.
She probably favors me as a junior.”
The emperors brows loosened when he heard this explanation.
Treating him as a junior was fine.
“Right, why did your cultivation level increase so quickly Even Zhao Zhi and Han Fengqiu could do anything to you Is it because of the Phoenix Nirvana Sutra”
Zu An shivered.
He sensed a hint of killing intent flash past the other partys expression.
After all, the text he offered the emperor definitely didnt have these effects.
That was why the emperor might have already started to question the authenticity of the manual.
It feels like Im living with a freaking lion all the time!
Fortunately, Zu An prepared for this beforehand.
“Your majesty, if it wasnt because of Madam Yus help, I might have already been killed by Han Fengqiu.
As for King Qis heir, it was because of theSunflower Phantasm Old Mi taught me before that I was able to even fight against him.”
“Even the most miraculous movement techniques have limits.
How is this possible unless youve already reached the seventh rank” The emperor harrumphed.
He clearly didnt believe Zu Ans words.
Zu An could only say with a troubled expression, “Your majesty is wise and brilliant.
Actually, it was because Old Mi wanted to possess my body, but it failed for some reason.
He passed away, but a portion of his strength was left in my body.
That was why I advanced so quickly.”
The emperor had a look ofno wonder on his face.
“So that was it.
I was wondering why you had some of Eunuch Mis cultivation.”
Zu An cupped his hands and said, “Your majesty is enlightened!”
But inside, he was thinking, if you knew the truth, you\'d be extremely embarrassed right now!
The emperor nodded in satisfaction.
“You can leave.
Remember to investigate the Devil Sects hideout.”
When Zu An left the study, he immediately found a place to change into his Golden Token Eleven uniform.
Then, he sought out the Embroidered Envoy who were already awaiting orders and headed towards that hideout.
The people in the hideout were horrified when they saw Embroidered Envoy come at them.
They had been sold out by Yun Jianyue, so there wasnt anything suspicious from their reactions.
What followed was a series of intense battles.
There were many Devil Sect experts in this hideout, but Zu An didnt even have to get involved himself.
The silver token and bronze token envoys already suppressed this hideout by themselves.
Zu An sighed in wonder.
The Embroidered Envoys coordinated battle style was indeed formidable.
Their Soul Reaping Chains in particular were even harder to defend against.
Zu An finally sighed in relief when those prisoners were brought back to the Embroidered Envoy prison.
The emperor probably wont be suspicious of him anymore.
He returned to his home after leaving the palace.
He was stunned as soon as he arrived at the entrance.
It looked like someone barged in!
But this person didnt break through his courtyards defensive formation.
Was this persons cultivation already at an inconceivable level
Even so, he had just fought against someone at the peak of the ninth rank, so he was quite confident in himself and didnt back down.
Instead, he sneaked inside.
There were a man and a woman chatting inside.
The man had pretty features that surpassed even a woman, while the woman was even more beautiful and elegant.
The young man said, “Big sis, brother-in-law is really indecent.
You have to watch out for him.”
The beautiful woman was surprised and said, “Did he bully you”
The young mans face blushed and he quickly said.
“He didnt, he didnt.
But hes always seducing girls outside, and he doesnt even care that Im right there watching.”
The beautiful girl frowned.
“That fella is still okay in other aspects, but this part of him is ridiculous!”
When she remembered how even her best friend went to bed with him, she immediately became upset.
You have successfully trolled Chu Chuyan for 233 233 233…
“Exactly! Exactly!” The youngster fanned the flames.
“Big sis, he still hasnt come back after so long, did he end up staying at some vixens place I saw him flirting with that girl in the carriage in the morning.
Maybe they already agreed to meet at night!”
