Chapter 109

Chapter 109 For the prince, for the world, I sacrifice myself for righteousness!

She was really surprised and speechless!

Even in the past, as a demon like her, it took two to three years of hard work day and night to go from sixth to fourth rank.
But the person in front of her has daily official duties to attend to and can be considered busy with public affairs.

However, in just three months, he went from sixth to fourth rank, which was even more amazing than her previous progress.

“Compared to you, I’m way behind!” Lin Beifan said modestly.
He knew his own situation, he only upgraded fast because of the system and external help.

And the demon woman in front of him relied on her own efforts and talent.

With this comparison, it was clear who was winning and losing.

“And, it will be difficult to progress in the future!” Lin Beifan sighed.

He embezzled nearly 40 million liang just to push himself to the peak of the fourth rank innate level.

To take a step forward and become a true master, he would need billions!

This amount of money was too huge. The Great Wu Empire’s annual treasury income was only 100 million taels. Where could he get so much money from?

Therefore, his future upgrade speed will inevitably slow down.
Of course, he could also rely on himself, his own efforts and insights, to break through the barrier and enter the realm of the Grandmaster.

But that may take two to three years, which is too long and he can’t wait.

If outsiders were to hear this, they would definitely be driven crazy.

You can become a Grandmaster in just two or three years, and you still complain about the speed?

“I look forward to your future!” Bai Guanyin smiled.

At this time, Lin Beifan took out a box of silver tickets and said, “This is the money I earned by selling the method of making air balloons during this period of time, please accept it!”

“It looks like a lot!”

“Well, it’s about 30 million taels.”

“30 million taels!!!”

Bai Guanyin was extremely shocked.

Although she was obsessed with martial arts, it didn’t mean she had no concept of money.

30 million taels was nearly one-third of the treasury of the Great Wu Empire!

The annual national treasury income of the dynasty was basically this much!

Small countries like the Darro Kingdom, their treasury income for several years combined might not even reach 30 million!

Lin Beifan was truly rich and powerful!

“How many people did you sell the method of making the air balloon to?” Bai Guanyin asked.

“Besides Prince of Northern Hebei, there are also Prince of Southern Jiang, Duke Wuxi…etc. Basically, the vassal kings with power have bought it! And some powerful countries around the Great Wu Empire, such as the Great Xia Empire, Great Yan Empire, and Great Yue Empire, have secretly sent people to buy it! The prices range from 2 to 5 million taels!” Lin Beifan proudly said.

Bai Guanyin was very speechless: “You really captured them all!”

Lin Beifan shook his head: “Not all! Some offered low prices, and I haven’t sold it to them yet. But later, I thought, even if ants are small, they’re still meat. I can’t waste it! So I decided to work harder and write more to sell. I can earn five or six hundred million more at least!”

Bai Guanyin’s mouth twitched visibly.

At this time, she finally understood the helplessness of the Empress. She sighed helplessly, “You handle it yourself! But be careful, if they discover the truth, they won’t let you off!”

“Don’t worry, I have my own arrangements!” Lin Beifan grinned.

Bai Guanyin took the huge sum of money and reported the situation to the Empress.

The Empress looked at the huge sum of money, surprised and happy, but also angry and irritated.

After a while, she cursed, “This bastard!”

In the following days, Lin Beifan wrote out the methods of making air balloons every night and sold them to make money.

Lin Beifan admired himself. Few corrupt officials were as diligent as him!

Whether it was intentional or unintentional, or simply an act of provocation, he was eventually discovered by Mo Rushuang.

Mo Rushuang felt heartbroken: “Mr. Lin, why would you do this? Is this really fair to the prince?”

Lin Beifan remained calm and continued to draw while saying, “I’m doing this for the prince!” Both Mo Rushuang and Guo Shaoshuai were confused.

“I truly am doing this for the prince,” Lin Bei Fan laughed, “Let me tell you, secrets can’t be kept forever! Sooner or later, the government will find out about the prince’s creation of the flying balloon! If that happens, what do you think the government will do?”

Guo Shaoshuai replied without hesitation, “They will definitely be very angry and distrustful, and force the prince to reveal the creation method and destroy all the balloons!”

Lin Beifan asked again, “What do you think the prince will do?” Guo Shao Shuai quickly said, “The prince definitely won’t agree and will act in secret!”

Lin Beifan asked again, “What will happen if the government finds out?”

Guo Shao Shuai said, “They’ll have to use force! The danger of the balloons is too great, and the prince’s possession of them is an even greater threat to the government. They must be eliminated, or else there will be endless troubles!”

Lin Beifan then asked, “And what will happen to the prince at that time?”

Guo Shaoshuai answered, “Of course, the prince would become wary and fight back!”

Lin Bei Fan said, “Exactly! That’s why I’m covering for the prince! If all the powers in the world have balloons, do you think the government will still attack the prince?”

Mo Rushuang and Guo Shaoshuai’s eyes lit up with understanding.

Mo Rushuang exclaimed, “If all the powers have balloons, the government won’t be able to attack, so the prince will be safe!”

Lin Beifan smiled and said, “You understand my genuine intention!”

Mo Rushuang apologized, “It’s all thanks to you, Mr. Lin. If it weren’t for you, we wouldn’t have thought of this! Mr. Lin, you are truly wise and far-sighted! I’m sorry, we misunderstood you again!”

Guo Shaoshuai hung his head in shame.

Lin Beifan waved his hand and said, “It’s okay. Ignorance is innocent! As long as you can understand my good intentions, that’s all that matters!”

Mo Rushuang and Guo Shaoshuai admired Lin Beifan even more.

Mo Rushuang then asked worriedly, “But Mr. Lin, if you sell the creation method to others…”

Lin Bei Fan laughed, “Don’t worry, I’m only selling them fake creation methods that absolutely cannot make flying balloons! This way, not only do I make a profit, but I also consume their strength for the prince’s benefit. It’s a win-win situation!”

Both Mo Rushuang and Guo Shaoshuai were filled with admiration and exclaimed, “Mr. Lin, you’re brilliant!”

However, Mo Rushuang still had concerns, “But if the secret is revealed, Mr. Lin, your safety will be in danger…”

“For the lord, for the world, I will sacrifice myself!” Lin Beifan said with great righteousness.

“Mr. Lin!” Mo Rushuang was very moved and determined, “No matter what, I will stay by your side and protect you! If they want to take your life, they will have to step over my dead body!”

Lin Beifan was also moved, “Mo Rushuang, you are so good to me!”

The two exchanged sincere glances, their emotions evident.

However, in that very moment, Guo Shaoshuai abruptly interjected:

“Mr. Lin, I am willing to put my life on the line to ensure your safety!”

“Step aside and leave my sight!” Lin Beifan replied firmly.

Guo Shaoshuai: “……”

Mo Rushuang and Guo Shaoshuai then joined Lin Beifan’s “plan”.

They helped Lin Beifan write and draw, and even helped him with business deals.

They were being used and still counting the money for others!
Meanwhile, far away in Northern Hebei, the Prince received Mo Rushuang’s letter and knew of everything Lin Beifan had done for him.

He felt a trace of emotion in his heart, “I never imagined that Lin Beifan would do so much for me!”

After reading the letter, Zhuge Liang was full of admiration, “Your Highness, I am increasingly impressed with the wisdom of the top scholar! Through this method, not only can it help alleviate the pressure on the court, allowing you to continue to secretly prepare, but also weaken the financial and military strength of other vassal kings and countries! Finally, the top scholar can profit from it, it’s simply killing three birds with one stone! It’s amazing!”

The Prince nodded and laughed, “Yes, I couldn’t have thought of it! Haha!”

“However, it may be a bit difficult for the top scholar! After all, what he’s doing is really risky! Once discovered, he’s sure to die! Your Highness, the top scholar has done so much for you, his loyalty should not be in doubt!” Zhuge Liang said.

“Indeed, there is no need to doubt! It seems that my previous actions have already won him over!” The Your Highness was very happy.

“Congratulations, Your Highness! With such a talented scholar, there’s no reason why our great endeavor cannot succeed!” Zhuge Liang exclaimed.

“Haha!” The Prince laughed heartily, “You’re right, Advisor! With such a talented scholar, our great endeavor cannot fail! I see that Lin Jun’s talents can rival that of three armies! Haha!”

“Your Highness, you are absolutely right!” Zhuge Liang said with a smile.

But soon, the Your Highness became worried again, “However, what Mr. Lin is doing is too risky! What if he’s discovered…”

“Your Highness, don’t worry, the top scholar is resourceful, he must have considered this!”

Zhuge Liang smiled, “Miss Mo said in her letter that Lin Beifan has taken a monk as his disciple who is suspected of having the skills of a grandmaster! With a grandmaster protecting him, his life should be safe! Your Highness, the most important thing now is to comfort Lin Beifan and make him know that you appreciate his efforts! This way, he will work even harder for you!”

The Your Highness thought this was a good idea, “Advisor, you’re right! This kind of loyal and devoted person should be rewarded! Those who work for me should not be treated unfairly! Advisor, what should I do?”

Zhuge Liang smiled, “That’s easy! Our top scholar likes money the most, so just give him more money!”

So the Priny reluctantly pulled out 500,000 taels of silver from the palace treasury and handed it to Lin Beifan.

There was also a letter written by the Prince himself, encouraging Lin Beifan to continue working hard.

Lin Beifan was a bit dazed, he made 500,000 just by performing a show?

The Prince was too generous!

Recalling every little thing he had done with the Prince, he realized that everything went smoothly!

Whenever he proposed harsh conditions, anyone in their right mind would have to think twice, but the other party readily agreed without hesitation.

It felt like someone had been assisting him all along!

At this time, all the different factions had obtained the method for making the hot air balloons and were racing to produce them.

Finally, one day, the truth was exposed.

I Am A Corrupt Official, Yet They Say I Am A Loyal Minister!

In the dangerous world of high martial arts, Lin Beifan traversed and found himself bound to a corrupt official system. It seemed that the only way to become stronger was through corruption – a ridiculous notion, but one that he had to follow nonetheless. He found himself embezzling, accepting bribes, and using his power for personal gain, becoming a despised and hated corrupt official. Yet, secretly, he distributed his ill-gotten gains to the people, leaving nothing for himself. He carried the weight of his bad reputation while still trying to make the world a better place. The empress, who knew the truth, shed tears and said, “My dear, I’m sorry for the injustice done to you. Come to my palace tonight.” The intelligent and beautiful women who knew the truth declared, “No matter how the world sees you, we are willing to stand by your side, through thick and thin!” The martial women of the Jianghu who knew the truth vowed, “If they want to take down Lin, they’ll have to get through us first!” Others were left in shock, “He’s clearly a corrupt official, why are you all protecting him?”
