Chapter 10: This Bastard! He’s Greedy and Gave Empress Scraps Again!

Currently, Lin Beifan is like dancing on the edge of a blade, at any moment his head may fall.

So whenever there is an opportunity, he immediately converts it into strength.

With Lin Beifan’s command –

[Ding! The host embezzled 450,000 taels of gold and silver jewelry, a huge amount, and is rewarded with the integration of the template of Master Linghu (later stage)!]

A powerful force quickly merged into Lin Beifan’s body.

Immediately after, there was also a memory that merged into his mind.

Lin Beifan knew that he was absorbing the Master Lihu’s providence, so he sat cross-legged and absorbed it.

At this time, in the imperial palace-

A Embroidered Uniform Guard is reporting to the Empress.

“Reporting to Your Majesty, under the leadership of the new top scholar Lin Beifan, progress has been rapid! 28 officials’ mansions have already been searched and a total of 600,000 taels worth of treasures have been plundered! Please review, Your Majesty!”

The Empress slammed the table and stood up: “How absurd! As an official, they should be a model of morals for the court, but not only did they not lead by example, they even embezzled 600,000 taels of treasures, averaging more than 20,000 taels per person! It can be seen that the court is corrupted to what extent? I’m afraid it’s worse than I imagine!”

“Your Majesty, please calm down!” Embroidered Uniform Guard lowered his head.

“How can I calm down?” The Empress Dowager said angrily: “Eating the court salary, not only did not help me, but also hindered me. I wish I could cut them all down! Immediately investigate one by one and make it clear! If they are unknowing, fine them a year’s salary and put them under scrutiny! If they are knowingly guilty, immediately take off their black hats and throw them into prison!”

“Yes, Your Majesty!” Embroidered Uniform Guard respectfully said.

After venting her anger, the Empress is still not satisfied.

If the court wasn’t short of talents, how could she be lenient and leave them alive?

It’s only because she has been in power for a short time and has too few reliable people.

The court cannot function without these people, so they are always at their mercy, and can only kill some small fish to vent their anger!

Seeing the hesitation of Embroidered Uniform Guard, the Empress Dowager frowned: “What else do you have to say?”

“Reporting to Your Majesty, it’s about the new top scholar Lin Beifan!”

“Lin Beifan?”

When the name Lin Beifan was mentioned, the empress’s frown finally eased a bit. Of all the officials in the court, she admired him the most. He was not just a nobleman with a pure background and outstanding academic achievements, but also had a compassionate heart and was not afraid to take on major responsibilities.

He was exactly the kind of talent she had been seeking. She was determined to cultivate him into a powerful minister who would assist her in her grand cause. The only flaw was that he was too young and lacked experience in the political arena, so he couldn’t yet take on heavy responsibilities. Otherwise, she would have promoted him to a higher position immediately.

“What is it about him?” the empress asked, her face showing a hint of a smile.

“Your Majesty, it’s like this!”

The Embroidered Uniform Guard looked at the empress’s expression and cautiously said, “During the house search of newly crowned top scholar Lin Beifan, he embezzled treasures worth 450,000 taels, and only deposited the remaining 150,000 taels into the national treasury!”

The empress’s smile gradually froze.

She subconsciously clenched her fists, as if she wanted to beat someone to death.

This bastard!

He embezzled a huge sum of money and gave her the leftover crumbs!

No wonder he was so enthusiastic at the time, making her feel touched. It turned out he had been planning this all along!

This damn son of a bitch!

This is a crime of disrespect and disloyalty to the empress, don’t you understand?

Do you have any loyalty to the empress left in your heart?

“You may go now!” The empress weakly waved her hand.

“Yes, Your Majesty!” The imperial guard retreated.

After a while, the empress calmly said, “Sister Qingxuan, you heard that. Please help me take a look at it!”

“Yes, Your Majesty!” A white figure flitted away.

At this moment, Lin Beifan had already absorbed the enlightenment from the martial arts master Linghu. His cultivation had not grown at all, but his strength had improved significantly, and he should be able to handle ordinary innate masters without any problems.

This is mainly because Linghu Sect Leader’s strength is really not that great compared to Prince Zhennan, he lacks internal strength, lacks lightness skill, and his martial arts skills are not that impressive.

However, Linghu Sect Leader still has many strengths. For example, he received a very systematic and formal martial arts education since he was young, which is something Prince Zhennan cannot compare to.

He knows a lot of martial arts skills, such as fist and foot techniques, Huashan Sword, Wuyue Sword, Xixing Dafa, and even a castrated version of Yijinjing, which makes his attacking techniques very rich and compensates for his previous shortcomings.

Most importantly…

Dugu Nine Swords!!!

This set of top-notch sword techniques inherited from the Sword Demon and dreamed of by countless people!

No ones can defeat this techniques, allowing one to win even when they are weaker, which is very impressive!

“Now I can also be considered a master swordsman!” Lin Beifan was very happy.

As a man, who doesn’t have a dream of wielding a sword?

Coming to this world of advanced martial arts, it would be a shame not to go out and explore!

However, he plans to realize this dream when he is no longer able to be an official.

Wandering the world with a sword, fighting with the bandits in the green forest!

Tasting the affection of the people in the rivers and lakes!

Drawing his sword to help the oppressed, and incidentally killing corrupt officials like himself!

Just thinking about it makes him feel great!

“Let’s focus on business for now, it’s time to scatter some wealth again!” Lin Beifan crushed the two chests of treasure, changed into black clothes again, and went out to scatter his wealth.

Unbeknownst to him, a white figure was following him from behind.


Linghu Chong is a fictional character from the Chinese wuxia novel “The Smiling, Proud Wanderer” (also known as “Swordsman”) by Jin Yong.
