The 15th year of Great Ming s Zhaowu.
The three rebel kings of the South surprisingly elected a single ruler, granting him the honorific title of King Wen of Zhou, while the original three kings became the great generals under King Wen of Zhou. When this news broke our, it sent shockwaves throughout the world.
if the southern rebels had maintained their state of three mutually independent kings, the integration of the southern rebels would have taken some time, creating a chance for the Great Ming to restore its ruling norm.
However, now that the southern rebels have suddenly unified under the so-called King Wen of Zhou, the situation in the Great Ming is precarious.
In other words, at this moment, the political winds have completely changed.
This event happened too suddenly, no one knew what had actually transpired in the South, but after the unification, the three generals immediately each led an army, attacking the north simultaneously.
From then on, the Southern rebels gained momentum like a bamboo breaking through. After Emperor Zhaowu, Ye Chen, received the battle reports at the Great Ming Capital, it was the final straw, lie was left with no alternatives.
He could only muster his troops, preparing for leading the troops in person. All the people in the world watched Yanhe River with trepidation.
It was there that the final showdown between the Great Ming Dynasty and the rebel army was likely to take place. It was at Yanhe where the Lifeless Sect had won their decisive battle against the Dayan Dynasty, establishing a solid foundation for the Great Ming Dynasty.
But who could have imagined at that time that only fifteen years later, history would repeat itself, causing turmoil in the world. Regardless, this battle was destined to be earth-shattering, it will decide the fate of rhe world.
The Imperial Palace.
At this moment, within the Grand Temple, Ye Chen and Ye Kai were sitting opposite each other, with food and wine set before them. Outsiders might find it unimaginable that at this critical juncture of the Great Ming Dynasty, the two of them could remain so composed, conversing casually.
“When 1 led the Lifeless Seer into the Capital back then, did you harbor any ill feelings towards me?’1
Ye Chen suddenly asked this question. Caught off guard, Ye Kai paused, bur then shook his head and laughed.
“At that time, I did have some resentment, but nor against you. I was resentful of my father, the ex-emperor, for leaving me such a mess to deal with. However, 1 was also looking forward to seeing you make a fool of yourself. As the leader of a rebellious heretic sect who happens to bear the Ye Family bloodline, I thought you would surely be left in a state of confusion in the face of worldly affairs.
But in rhe end, it was I who got a taste of humble pie. You did very well, far better than 1 could ever have. I accepted my lot then and started managing the affairs of the White Lotus Sect, casting a shadow over the Ye Family.”
“It sounds like you really admire me. Ha-ha-ha…”
“Well, if you say so. I wonder if that mysterious elder will show up during your personal expedition?”
Upon mentioning this, Ye Kai’s expression darkened, as did Ye Chen’s. Without this mysterious elder, how could rhe country of Great Ming have fallen into such a state?
“Never mind, no matter what, we have to fight this battle. Otherwise, we would be like frogs in warm water who will eventually get cooked. We can’t escape this fate.
As per our agreement, don’t forget to take the Mountain River Tripod when you leave, and help to maintain the Ye Family Bloodline. I imagine ir will be quite a burden on you.
Make sure you teach our descendants well. In a hundred years, they will be able to enter the Cultivation World with the help of what’s within the Mountain River Tripod.
But remind them not to think too much of it. Only when they have become strong enough can they come back and avenge our Ye Family.”
Ye Kai nodded upon hearing this, a bitter taste creeping up his mind, lie never expected that he would become the guardian of the last bloodline of the Ye Family.
“Alright, it’s getting late. You should take rhe last bloodline of our Ye Family and leave the Capital as soon as possible. The further, the better.
If I win this battle, you all can come back. If I lose, everything will be up to you.”
Saying this, Ye Chen toasted with a drink of wine, finished ir straight off, and then left the Grand Temple without looking back. It was time for him to gather his troops and prepare for the decisive battle.
Ye Kai sat in the Grand Temple watching the silhouette of Ye Chen leaving, then he took the Mountain River Tripod and quietly left the Imperial Palace.
When he reached the secret base on rhe outskirts of the Capital and saw rhe children sleeping inside, a loving look crossed Ye Kai s face.
These were the future of the Ye Family!
The next day, in the early morning, Ye Kai was still waiting for the last man to assemble. After today, they would leave the Capital in batches and go into hiding.
But just as they were all ready and about to ser off under the cover of night, a golden dragon suddenly fell from the sky. The whole mansion collapsed instantly, people inside didn’t even have a chance to react before they perished.
At that moment, an old man with white hair appeared in the mansion. After confirming the death of all members of the Ye Family and finding the Mountain River Tripod, he breathed a sigh of relief.
This man was none other than Liang Sheng, who had been lurking in rhe background watching the Ye Family. Now that rhe dark vein of the Ye family had been removed, it was a battle to the death between Zhou Ping and his son, and Ye Chen.
The three great rebel kings of rhe south respected Zhou Ping as King Wen of Zhou, which was naturally the maneuver of Liang Sheng. Faced with absolute power, the three great rebel kings recognized their defeat.
As rhe decisive battle between Zhou Ping and his son and the Great Ming Dynasty loomed, Liang Sheng didn’t want to make a move at this time unless they encountered a situation that Zhou Ping and his son couldn’t handle.
Furthermore, Zhou Ping and his son needed to go through a bit of hardship. They might not value that which came too easily. Although they were unlikely to harbour thoughts of rebellion, Liang Sheng still wanted them ro suffer a bit.
After confirming the death of all Ye’s family members who had gone into hiding under Ye Kai’s leadership, Liang Sheng left with the Mountain River Tripod.
Next, the decisive battle for the dynasty would fully break out. Ye Chen, the Zhaowu Emperor of the Great Ming Dynasty, led the cream of the Imperial Army in the charge at the front, greatly boosting the morale of the soldiers below. However, Zhou Ping and his son were not pushovers..
