Chapter 77: The World Cannot Allow Such a Powerful Person to Exist!

Due to his promotion, Lin Beifan was very happy. That night, he and Li Shi Shi were enjoying the moon and drinking, having a great time. Just then, a cold white figure appeared in front of them. It was Bai Qingxuan, Bai Guanyin, a woman who was like a goddess or demon.

Li Shi Shi was initially startled, but then delighted, standing up and bowing slightly.

“I greet Lady Bai Guanyin!” A magnetic voice emanated from Bai Qingxuan, “You don’t have to be so polite.”

Lin Beifan, on the other hand, was not so courteous, rolling his eyes and saying, “Every time you appear, it’s like a ghost, without any warning!”

Bai Qingxuan said, “Sorry, I’m used to it. I’ll be more careful next time.”

Lin Beifan rolled his eyes again because he couldn’t hear any apology in her tone. But what could he do? He couldn’t beat Bai Guanyin.

“I heard that you have created many inventions that benefit the country and the people, such as giant steel ships that can float on water, balloons that can fly in the sky, and hybrid rice that can increase production…”

Lin Beifan was shocked, “How did you know so much?”

“I have my sources,” Bai Qingxuan said curiously, “How did you come up with these wild ideas? Can they really be realized?”

Lin Beifan looked at the wine on the table and smiled, “Let’s drink and talk about it.”

Bai Qingxuan thought for a moment and nodded, “Alright.”

She disappeared from her stone seat and reappeared on a different one.

This was the first time that Lin Beifan had such a close encounter with Bai Qingxuan, but he could only barely make out her features and outline. It seemed like there was a layer of mist surrounding her that he could never see through. She was a mysterious and fascinating woman.

Li Shi Shi had already poured wine for Bai Qingxuan, and after drinking it, she curiously asked Lin Beifan, “Why can a heavy ship made of steel still float on water?”

“Because water has buoyancy, it can support anything,” Lin Beifan laughed, “The greater the buoyancy, the heavier the object it can support. The buoyancy of the water has nothing to do with the weight or material of the object, but with the amount of water displaced by the object. The more water is displaced, the greater the buoyancy of the object, so naturally steel can float on water…”

Lin Beifan explained the buoyancy of water in simple terms.

“Oh~” Bai Qingxuan nodded as if understanding. “So why can a hot air balloon fly?”

“It’s the same principle. We live in a world filled with air, which is like water. Water has buoyancy, and so does air. I call it air buoyancy…”

Lin Beifan explained the principle of ballooning in detail. “Can hybrid rice really increase production? Can it solve the problem of people’s food?”

“Yes, it involves the principle of eugenics. Let me explain it to you…” Lin Beifan briefly explained the concept of hybrid rice.

Bai Qingxuan nodded, feeling like she had opened a door to a new world and overturned all her previous beliefs. Li Shi Shi was admiring Lin Beifan, thinking that her man was so knowledgeable and wise! After explaining everything, it was already late at night. Li Shi Shi had fallen asleep without realizing it, and Lin Beifan carried her to the room to rest.

Bai Qingxuan sighed and said, “One short conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of studying. I didn’t expect that there are so many profound truths and knowledge hidden in our daily lives. The more I know, the more I feel ignorant. The stronger I become, the smaller I feel.”

Lin Beifan laughed, “You’re right. Life is limited, but knowledge is infinite. That’s why we shouldn’t be narrow-minded and arrogant.”

“I have a question, where did you learn all these strange knowledge from?” Bai Qingxuan asked.

Lin Beifan shamelessly replied, “I learned on my own, self-taught.”

“I have another question, since you have to run away at any moment, why do you do so many things?” Bai Qingxuan asked.

“Exactly because of this, that’s why I do it!” Lin Beifan replied.

“What? Why?” Bai Qingxuan was confused.

Lin Beifan covered his face and said, “Because the Empress has been good to me, but I have committed so much corruption behind her back. So I hope that when I have to run away, she will consider my past kindness and let me go.”

Bai Qingxuan couldn’t help but laugh. These two were happy enemies, secretly caring for each other, but forced to act like corrupt officials and incompetent rulers due to the pressure of reality.

She suddenly became curious, what would Lin Beifan’s expression be if this matter was exposed?

“Actually, there is another reason!” Lin Beifan said.

“What reason?” Bai Qingxuan asked.

“I want to leave a mark in this world, to prove that I was here!” Lin Beifan smiled proudly.

He came to a brand new world, and since he had the opportunity, he had to leave something behind, to prove that he had lived here carefree and unrestrained. That was enough! Maybe one day, people will refer to him as the father of science because he brought science to the world.


Two flowers bloomed, each with its own branch.

The two of them who dared to go to the Iron Sword Gate in the capital were still unable to find the Night Hero after several days of effort. It was as if the other party had completely disappeared, leaving no trace.

In the restaurant, Guo Shaoshuai said in frustration, “Sister, do you think the Night Hero has already left the capital? According to the information we gathered, he hasn’t appeared for almost half a month!”

Mo Rushuang frowned and said, “It’s possible! But according to our sources in various places, we haven’t found any traces of the Night Hero either!”

“What should we do now?” Guo Shaoshuai asked anxiously.

“Let’s look for two more days! If we still can’t find him, we can only go back!” Muo Rushuang said helplessly.

“Sigh, we have no choice!” Guo Shaoshuai sighed.

At this moment, Mo Rushuang remembered that she had met Lin Beifan before. She said, “We have some time now, why don’t we visit Lin Beifan? We can get to know him better and see if he can be of use to the prince.”

“What… visit him?” Guo Shaoshuai was unwilling in his heart.

The last time they met, he was completely crushed by Lin Beifan, unable to raise his head. If they met again, he would probably be crushed to pieces in seconds.

Mo Rushuang said helplessly, “Junior brother, don’t be impulsive. Business is the most important thing!”

“Okay, sister, I’ll listen to you!” Guo Shaoshuai reluctantly agreed.

Mo Rushuang called the waiter, paid the bill, and asked for Lin Beifan’s address, hoping he could help them.

“You’re looking for the new top scholar Lin Beifan?” The waiter was surprised.

“The person we’re looking for is named Lin Beifan. Why is he the new top scholar?” Muo Rushuang asked in confusion.

“Because he is indeed the new top scorer of this year, don’t you know?” The shopkeeper was surprised.

The two shook their heads. They were both people of the martial world and paid more attention to its matters. As for the matters of the court, it was too far-fetched for them, and they only knew some basic content.

“Can you tell me about the situation of the new top scorer, Lin Beifan? We are from out of town and don’t know much about him!” Mo Rushuang calmly took out some silver.

“Of course, I can!” The shopkeeper quickly accepted the silver and said, “Let’s talk about this top scorer, Lin Beifan. He is truly talented, knowledgeable, and handsome! He even scored three times in the imperial exams at a young age, and there are countless girls in the capital who want to marry him! Did you know that he also visited our famous brothel – Hundred Flowers House? Guess what happened?”

“What happened?”

Mo Rushuang and Guo Shaoshuai, the two of them spoke in unison. The shopkeeper slapped his thigh, full of envy, and said, “Our capital’s number one courtesan, Li Shi Shi, was captivated by his talents and looks, and she was crazy about following him! She even spent money to buy her freedom, and this has become a popular story in the capital!”

Guo Shaoshuai’s heart was sour as he listened. The new top scorer, who had scored three times in the imperial exams, was talented, knowledgeable, and handsome! Countless girls in the capital wanted to marry him! He even had the capital’s number one courtesan following him madly!

Damn…he had not even met him yet, and he was already feeling inferior again!

“Moreover, our top scorer is highly favored by the Empress!”

The shopkeeper said with red eyes, “Just two days after becoming the top scorer, he was rewarded with a luxurious mansion by the Empress! The mansion is located in the center of the capital and is worth 200,000 silver, which even the wealthy may not be able to afford!”

“He was also rewarded with a golden purple auspicious cloud carriage, which was like a luxurious small house. It was pulled by two sweat-blooded horses and was truly magnificent!”

“He’s often rewarded with things like silver and gold, satin and silk, palace wine, and so on. He’s never lacking in anything!”

“It is said that the Empress is concerned about his diet and has the kitchen send food to him every day! Chicken, duck, fish, and other top-grade ingredients that only the Emperor would usually have. It’s really enviable!”

Guo Shaoshuai felt even more sour. He was better-looking than him, more talented than him, and even more popular with women than him! But when it came to food, clothing, and transportation, everything was better than him!

Damn…this was a complete blow!

“Moreover, this guy gets promoted quickly!”

“In just one month, he was promoted two grades and became a fifth-rank official! Do you know how much effort it takes for a top scorer to be promoted to a fifth-rank official? It usually takes at least three years, and that’s only possible under the favor of the court! But he did it in just one month. Is this fair?”

Guo Shaoshuai shook his head. This was unfair! This man should be dismembered and executed! The world cannot tolerate such a badass! Mo Rushuang couldn’t help but sigh,

“Being a top scorer in the imperial exams and getting promoted two grades in just one month, and receiving such favor from the Empress, it seems that he’s a good official with abilities!”

The shopkeeper couldn’t help but curse, “He’s just a corrupt official!”

“Corrupt official?” Mo Rushuang and the two of them were confused.

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?”
