Chapter 41: A loyal subject cannot be wronged!

“Bai Guanyin, you know that what I’m doing now is a risky business. So, I hope that when I get into trouble, you can help me save Shi Shi, Dali, Xiao Cui, and others, and quickly send them away from the capital!” Lin Beifan said seriously.

“Husband!” Li Shi Shi looked up with teary eyes.

“The only thing I am concerned about is you all. As long as you are safe, I can boldly do what I have to do!”

“But if something happens to my husband, I will not live either!” Li Shi Shi’s gaze was firm.

“Don’t worry, this is only the worst-case scenario!”

Lin Beifan smiled and said, “I have a habit of always preparing for the worst and doing my best. It’s rare to come across a great master like you, so I want to be more prepared just in case!”

Bai Qingxuan asked in confusion, “With your skills, there shouldn’t be many people in the capital who can stop you.”

As a deep and unfathomable master herself, she had long seen through Lin Beifan’s strength.

Although he had only reached the sixth rank of innate realm, his strength was comparable to that of a fifth-rank innate realm practitioner. There were not many people in the capital with such strength!

In addition, he was extremely skilled in lightness technique, and even a grandmaster might not be able to catch up with him!

Taking people out of the capital was not difficult for him.

“I’m not afraid of anyone else, but the only one I’m afraid of is the empress!” Lin Beifan sighed.

“Why are you afraid of her? As far as I know, Her Majesty has been showing you great favor!” Bai Qingxuan’s face became strange.

Unfortunately, it was impossible to tell in the white mist.

“That’s why I’m afraid! The deeper the love, the stronger the responsibility. She favors me now, but after my incident is revealed, when she finds out that I took her money, she will definitely be furious and turn all her love into hate!”

“Women can be terrifying when they get angry, especially proud women like the empress!”

“At that time, she will send a large army to hunt me down. What should I do if she sends ten or even dozens of innate or even grandmasters to chase after me? Even if I am stronger, I will have no way to turn the tide!”

Bai Qingxuan suddenly felt like laughing when she heard this.

You also know that!

“Since you knew better, why were you still so greedy? If it weren’t for the fact that the empress is a wise ruler, your head would have already rolled. How could you have survived until now?

Upon closer inspection, it suddenly became clear that these two young people were truly a pair of quarrelsome allies. One was a corrupt official, while the other was a tyrant ruler. One desperately tried to embezzle money from the other, without letting the other know. Meanwhile, the other tried to siphon off the money that the other had embezzled into his own private pockets, without letting the other know.

However, everything these two did was for the sake of the country and the common people. For some reason, Bai Qingxuan had a glimmer of hope for this murky and filthy society.

“Fine, I agree to your request! But I suspect that you’ll never have to use this condition in your entire life!”

“I hope so!” Lin Beifan sighed and didn’t have much hope.

Then, Bai Qingxuan took away all the money that Lin Beifan had embezzled.

She returned to the palace and reported this matter to the empress.

The empress was overjoyed: “Wonderful! With this money, many things can be expedited! Lin my dear, you truly are the pillar of my support. I will reward you well!”

The next day, during the morning court session, as soon as everyone had finished reciting their salutations, the empress couldn’t wait any longer and asked: “Lin my dear, where are you?”

“Answering your Majesty, I’m here.”

The surrounding ministers felt a wave of disgust once again.

“Can you guys talk about something more substantial in private? It’s a time to discuss national affairs during the court meeting, can we focus on serious matters?”

“I’m even tired of listening to you guys, how can you not be annoyed?”

Not long after, the empress asked about food again. Lin Beifan said that he was very happy to be able to eat meat every day. But the empress was distressed.

“You’re so happy just to eat meat every day? Your standards are too low! Look at those corrupt officials, all of them eat lavish meals and do nothing!”

“How can my most valued person be satisfied with just meat? This won’t do! Loyal officials should not be wronged, and honest officials should be rewarded even more!”

So, the empress said with distress, “Lin my dear, we have wronged you! Here’s what we’ll do: We will have the imperial kitchen send a fresh food delivery every day with a variety of options including chicken, duck, fish, and lamb. Eat to your heart’s content and don’t be polite with us!”

The officials couldn’t help but exclaim, “Holy cow! Can this even be done?”

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?”
