wasn ’t just him, the guardians sealed off their senses and fully focused on recovery.
He didn ’t know whether to laugh or cry. They were treating him in such a fashion so quickly.
In truth, since a Mortal Godlord gave his word, they had the same belief he did: A Godlord, someone of such status, would do their best to honor their word. While he hadn ’t said he would protect them, the fact he offered to bring them to the royal palace meant their lives were his responsibility. Considering his combat prowess, they wholeheartedly trusted him.
Even if another Godlord arrived, it ’s highly likely Wei Wuyin would slay them.
Helplessly shaking his head, he found it quite funny.
Su Mei was the same as them, but her actions were more understandable. She had already started to consolidate her foundation at the Sixth Phase.
They traveled for nearly half an hour before Prince Zhen breathed out a breath of turbid air filled with dark, tainted blood mist. He inspected Li Tian and Li Di and checked their current location, seeing they were going in the right direction, he sighed in relief for some reason.
”Are they members of Wu or? ” Wei Wuyin abruptly asked, catching Prince Zhen ’s attention.
Prince Zhen ’s brows perked, he frowned briefly before relaxing. ”The Wu Clan is divided, weakened, and inviting wolves into our den. ” He didn ’t answer Wei Wuyin ’s question immediately but gave him an overall sense of the status of the Wu Country and its Imperial Clan.
Wei Wuyin frowned. Those words may seem indirect, but about twenty questions of his were answered. As for the specifics, he didn ’t care too much. He only wanted to know if the assassins were homebred. From those words, they were.
”Hidden Shadow Domain? ” He abruptly said.
Prince Zhen ’s expression turned solemn, and he heavily nodded his head. He decided to be a little more clear. ”Our Ancestral King has gone into life and death seclusion in hopes of ascending into the Second Stage of the Astral Core Realm. Without another of his strength, many are taking this opportunity to whittle down the competition for the throne.
”Even if it ’s a puppet who claims it, ” Prince Zhen every word contained disappointment, anger, frustration, and helplessness. Furthermore, the situation of the Yuhei Country could happen here, if the Ancestral King failed to survive.
Wei Wuyin stayed silent. While Prince Zhen hadn ’t said everything regarding the matter, most could be deduced based on context.
The Hidden Shadow Domain was dipping its hand in the pot to make a bid on a prince to become the next King of Wu. That prince was not Prince Zhen. Likely, it was a young, relatively unknown and disregarded prince. They were easier to coax and bait into plans.
However, Prince Zhen was a Sublime Qi Phase expert, a Mortal God, and short of becoming a Godlord. If he did ascend, he would have a certain outcome of claiming the throne on his power alone. Therefore, they intended to eliminate this possible variable to ensure the completion of their plan.
In fact, it ’s possible to determine from his aura that the prince ’s breakthrough was relatively recent. It made sense that his Twin Guardians were Peak Mortal Gods and not Godlords in that case.
However, from what he knew, Prince Zhen wasn ’t the crown prince. In fact, until the Ancestral King weighed in on his opinion, it ’s not possible to determine one. However, with the Ancestral King in life and death seclusion, this rule could be circumvented.
All it required was the Royal Council and King Wu himself to make a decision.
From his personality and way of handling matters, Wei Wuyin felt comfortable with Prince Zhen becoming King of Wu.
”Godlord Wei, if I may… ” Prince Zhen revealed a hesitant tone. He clearly wanted to know Wei Wuyin ’s origins and stance on the matter. While he didn ’t bet all his chickens in one basket, there were only nineteen Godlords in the Wu Country.
As for Godkings, there were three.
Firstly, the current King of Wu, Wu Yu. His cultivation base was well-known and he had been in power for two hundred and thirty years. He was still in his prime and was called the Steel Executioner. An expert renown for his metal qi arts and spells. In fact, he had condensed his Heart of Steel Qi using Steel Metal Essence – the same high-level essence Wei Wuyin used.
Secondly, the High Commander of the Royal Military, Ba Chen. She was exceptionally powerful and the number one female expertin the entire Wu Country. She was also the Sister-In-Law to the King.
Lastly, the Hidden Shadow Domain ’s Domain Master, Hu Jiwei. He was known for his scheming and mysterious means. His powers and abilities were relatively unknown, but no one underestimated him. Even the Wu Country took him seriously.
Wei Wuyin calmly interrupted, ”My background isn ’t a secret. I am Wei Wuyin, former Disciple of the Scarlet Solaris Sect, the Saber Ascendant. I have no conflict with the Imperial Rule, nor do I intend to side with the Hidden Shadow Domain. ”
”! ” Prince Zhen was quiet at first, but then started.
