With Shi Xueyun’s help mending the bridge between Yi Tianyun and Jiao Linghe, the atmosphere wasn’t as awkward as before. Jiao Linghe really loved Yi Tianyun as her son, and she was also proud of him, who has become such a dependable man.
Although Yi Tianyun didn’t quite love his mother just yet, he respected her for being loyal to her husband, or should he say, his father for this matter.
“We are almost at Sealing Heaven Divine Nation.” Yi Tianyun said casually.
“Tianyun, when we got there, don’t act impulsively! We will see Grandfather first. We should be able to see him if he knows I’m coming.” Jiao Linghe said worriedly.
“I will do what I can, but I will do it my own way if they do something insincere! If anyone acts rudely to me, or we found out that the Sealing Heaven Divine Nation was really the one behind the poisoning, I will not hold back.” Yi Tianyun said indifferently.
Jiao Linghe nodded her head as she knew how annoying it would be when they found out that the Sealing Heaven Divine Nation was really the one behind all this misery.
“You don’t have to worry about it. If they were really the ones behind all this, I would join you as well! People referred to me as the Vengeful Lady, and I will prove what it means towards my enemy!” Jiao Linghe said with a smile on her face.
But even though Jiao Linghe acted confident like this, she was still worried and nervous inside as Sealing Heaven Divine Nation was a powerful faction!
Yi Tianyun smiled as he didn’t have any emotional attachment to his ancestor’s land either. “Mother, do you have any idea who would do this to us in the first place?” Yi Tianyun asked curiously.
“Yes, I have a faint idea who it was, but I’m not quite sure just yet.” Jiao Linghe said unsurely.
“Who would it be?” Yi Tianyun asked once again.
“It is the Third Elder. Even if the Great Elder doesn’t want anything to do with me, he won’t do such a cruel thing to his own son, but the Third Elder has been against me from the very beginning! He even tried to attack your father and me when I told the Great Elder that I was pregnant at that time.” Jiao Linghe said worriedly.
“I was afraid at that time that they would take you away from me. That was the reason that I immediately escaped from Sealing Heaven Divine Nation’s Imperial City and gave birth to you in a small town nearby.” Jiao Linghe said with a sad expression. “But, the Great Elder, your grandfather was the one who let me and your father escape in the first place. I don’t know if he had anything to do with anything that happened to us, but I hope he didn’t.” Jiao Linghe said with a frown on her face.
Yi Tianyun nodded as he understood what Jiao Linghe was trying to say. After all, the Great Elder was still the father of her husband and the grandfather of her son.
“Even though we know that The Great Elder would still accept us at Sealing Heaven Divine Nation, your father didn’t want to return as he was really sick of hearing people telling him to pass on a strong bloodline for the sake of the faction.”
“If you’re, they wouldn’t want me alive! If they saw you, they wouldn’t want you alive either as they would think that you would affect their power struggle later.” Yi Tianyun said solemnly.
“Yes, it was one of the possibilities. When you were born, we measured your bloodline, but it was faint. You have a little to none Heaven Divine King’s bloodline in you, but it was enough to create chaos as the Third Elder’s Grandson was in the same position as you since both of you were the rightful candidate for the next Lord.” Jiao Linghe said solemnly.
“I knew it! In the end, the reason was a power struggle.” Yi Tianyun shook his head as he already suspected as much. But it was regrettable that Yi Xingchen, who was said to be the genius of Sealing Heaven Divine Nation, ended up being targeted as well.
“I also have a rough idea who poisoned you earlier. It was the maid who bathed you right after you were born. Besides her, no one else came close to you without me knowing what they were doing!”
“Well, she might be under someone else’s intimidation. After all, a normal person wouldn’t stand a chance against an expert.” Yi Tianyun said casually.
“Even if that’s the case, we couldn’t accuse anyone just yet. We don’t have any evidence to begin with. It was all just a speculation without a body.” Jiao Linghe said with a frown on her face.
“That’s alright. We are bound to get the evidence later!” Yi Tianyun said indifferently. He had various ways to collect evidence later. For example, he could use the Eye of Charm’s power to get it from someone with lower cultivation than himself later.
“We have finally arrived!” Yi Tianyun said as he landed outside of the city wall. The guard immediately stopped them as they started to walk towards the gate.
“You two again? What do you want this time?” the guard asked curiously.
“We are Yi Family!” Jiao Linghe said as she pulled out a token that emitted unique energy.
“Second Elder’s token? Please walk inside!” The guard said immediately. Jiao Linghe nodded and started to walk inside again before she was stopped once again.
“Jiao Linghe?” an old man’s voice was heard from the side. She recognized that voice and immediately turned her attention towards the old man with a frown on her face. “I didn’t expect you to come back here. Where is Yi Xingchen? Did he finally cast you aside?” Deacon Xiao said with a smirk on his face.
“I don’t have time to hear your gibberish, Deacon Xiao. I have an urgent matter to attend to!” Jiao Linghe said coldly.
“Urgent matter? Our Sealing Heaven number 1 genius ran away with you! How dare you return here after what you’ve done! Did you want to ask for more resources now that you’ve been cast aside by your husband? Did you finally become a beggar who wants some pocket change here?” Deacon Xiao said condescendingly.
Yi Tianyun sighed, flashed forward, and slapped Deacon Xiao’s mouth. Deacon Xiao was thrown to the side, and his lips were bleeding. Jiao Linghe was smiling, but she couldn’t help but think how powerful her son was!
“Pay attention to your word! If she was a beggar, then you are a trash that’s not even worth a dime!” Yi Tianyun said coldly.
Yi Tianyun couldn’t just brush it off when someone humiliate his loved ones like this!
