2014 Reporting Completed, the King’s Evaluation

Chu Yunfan immediately understood the king’s meaning. As a king, many people’s life and death struggles were not important to him.

For the Li clan, losing Li Qianyuan was equivalent to cutting off the hope of rising in the future. Even Li Weiyuan was killed by Chu Yunfan. Not only was the hope of rising in the future destroyed. Even if the Li clan produced another prodigy who could make it onto the Prodigy List in the future, it would take decades to nurture them.

In addition, the deaths of Li Weiyuan and Li Qianyuan brought about a huge problem. In other words, the Li clan would lack a leader in the next hundred years and would not be able to compete with other forces for the right to speak. This was naturally heartbreaking for the Li clan.

However, to the kings and Grand Xia, these people were nothing. They were just one of the shining stars in the history of Grand Xia. There were undercurrents in the Imperial Court. Some wanted to kill Chu Yunfan, while others wanted to protect him. The two sides were fighting fiercely, but the level was too high, so Chu Yunfan did not feel the struggle.

However, judging from the king’s intention, it was obvious that the king wanted to let bygones be bygones. After all, Chu Yunfan had killed Li Qianyuan in the arena. Everyone knew that fists and feet had no eyes in the arena. For the king, as long as Chu Yunfan continued to make enough contributions to the empire, this little mistake was not worth mentioning.

Chu Yunfan understood that if he died at the hands of Li Qianyuan, it would probably be the same result. Could it be that the king would punish Li Qianyuan for a small general? That was impossible. Although this was cruel, it was reality. This stimulated Chu Yunfan’s fighting spirit. He had to rise up and truly stand among the top experts in the world so that no one could control his life and death.

“I understand.” Chu Yunfan nodded.

The king nodded in satisfaction. “Very good, Lord Chu. I look forward to seeing you make great contributions to the empire in the future. You are only a two-word marquis now. In the future, you will be a one-word marquis. You can even be a duke or a king as long as you have the ability.”

Chu Yunfan could see the king had strong confidence. Although he didn’t show his strength, he was the ruler of this huge empire. Only when he had absolute confidence in himself would he not worry about his subordinates overshadowing him and hope that his subordinates would make more contributions.

“All right, you may go now. I took the time to meet you today because I wanted to see the younger generation of the empire. You didn’t disappoint me,” the king said.

Wei Yin, who had been invisible before, suddenly appeared in front of Chu Yunfan and made an inviting gesture. Chu Yunfan followed him out of the hall. He couldn’t help but feel a little absent-minded. However, he immediately smiled. He was just going through the motions.

In today’s world, civil and military officials are divided and ruled separately. The sage emperor governs the country by bowing his head. The civil minister is the head of all officials, and the military minister is the marshal. He was at the top of the group of generals.

Basically, all the major events in the world could be divided into civil and military affairs. Chu Yunfan had been promoted to Marquis Zhenyuan because of his military achievements. The Grand Commandant’s Office should have conducted all kinds of inspections and evaluations long ago, and he had already obtained the recognition of all parties in the court. The meeting with the king today was just a formality.

“This is where I shall see you off. I wish you a bright future, Lord Chu.”

After Wei Yin sent Chu Yunfan out of the Diligent Government Hall, he cupped his hands and turned around to reenter the hall. Soon, his figure disappeared into the shadows.

Chu Yunfan did not stay any longer. Under the guidance of the palace staff waiting outside, Chu Yunfan immediately left the Imperial Capital. In the Diligent Government Hall, Wei Yin, who had returned, stood at the king’s side.

“Tell me, what kind of person is he?” The king glanced at Wei Yin.

“Your Majesty, I’m an internal official. I don’t talk about external matters. This is the rule,” Wei Yin said.

“It’s okay. I asked you to tell me.” The king waved.

“From the information we’ve gathered, Marquis Zhenyuan is ruthless and decisive. However, he is a loyal man and not a wolf,” Wei Yin said.

“Judging from Lord Chu’s usual style of doing things, it’s impossible unless he was acting from the beginning. It’s not a coincidence that he defeated Li Qianyuan. He is much more powerful than Li Qianyuan. Li Qianyuan wasted his talent, and he did some unscrupulous things. He thought that no one knew about his collusion with the demons and the Demon God Sect. He thought that he would be fine with the Crown Prince’s protection. In fact, he was very wrong.

“Those who do great things should bear great responsibilities. Li Qianyuan, I am so disappointed!”

As the king spoke, he shook his head. He seemed a little cold, but also a little regretful. “However, we have to continue observing Chu Yunfan. We have to listen to his words and observe his actions.”

Chu Yunfan didn’t know that the king and Wei Yin had commented on him and Li Qianyuan in the Diligent Government Hall. But even if he knew, he wouldn’t care. After meeting the king and completing his report, he was officially Marquis Zhenyuan of the Empire. Even when facing the head of the Li clan, he could be on equal footing. At least in terms of nobility, he could be on equal footing.

Chu Yunfan did not stay in the Imperial Capital for long. Not long after leaving for the Imperial Capital, Chu Yunfan returned to Baotai through the teleportation portal. This place had become Chu Yunfan’s fief, and because of him, this place was now called Zhenyuan City.

When Chu Yunfan returned to Zhenyuan, he found out that not long after he left, a construction team from the Ministry of Industry had arrived through the teleportation portal. They had demolished his previous residence and rebuilt it according to his specifications.

Everything was on the right track. The forces in Zhenyuan had also accepted it. From now on, this border town had its own master. The people in the city quickly accepted it and sincerely welcomed this too because those who were not welcome and opposed it had long been eliminated.

As soon as Chu Yunfan returned to the camp, he was informed that there were guests waiting for him.
