True Martial World - chapter-425
Jade Bamboo peak was covered in lush green bamboo trees. Inside the
bamboo forest stood a tower named Jade Bamboo Little Tower. It did not
have a large area, but it was extremely exquisite. It was where Matriarch
Other than a few Grand Elders who dedicated themselves to cultivating so
they could extend their lifespans and did not question worldly matters,
Matriarch Lin was actually in charge of the Lin family. Jade Bamboo
Little Tower became the spot where the highest power resided in in the
At this moment, in the Jade Bamboo Little Tower, Matriarch Lin was
sitting on her chair. Two maid servants were standing beside her,
massaging her shoulders. Her eyes were slightly closed, as if she was
about to fall asleep. On the surface, Matriarch Lin looked like an
ordinary old granny from a rich, noble family. It was as if because an
old person was lacking in mental energy, they would doze off from time to
A woman dressed in a palatial gown entered and bowed to Matriarch Lin.
She was Lin Xintong’s grandaunt.
“Oh? Fenggu… ” Matriarch Lin opened her eyes slightly. After
glancing at her, Matriarch Lin nodded, motioning her to take a seat.
Lin Xintong’s grandaunt, Lin Fenggu, had previously pushed for the Lin
family and Shen Tu family clan marriage alliance. Although it was proven
that the Shen Tu family clan had nefarious motives, people like Lin
Fenggu were not punished, they were only reprimanded.
After all, there were too many people who sided with the Shen Tu family
clan. Even the Matriarch herself had ordered Lin Xintong to eat the relic
at the final moment.
For this, Matriarch Lin had self-reflected for three days, so as to
remember this lesson.
“Matriarch, it’s about that Yun Yantian…”
Visit for a better experience
The woman in palatial gown said distastefully. She still had a lot of
prejudice towards Yi Yun.
“Oh?” Matriarch Lin frowned slightly. She had a hunch that Lin Fenggu
would not say anything good, “What about him?”
“It’s this, I received some information regarding him. His true name
is Yi Yun and he was born in the Eastern regions. Furthermore, even in
the backward Eastern regions, he was an extremely normal civilian. His
background could not be any humbler.”
“And this is not the most important thing. The most important thing is
that he has an elder sister of a different surname. His sister is
actually from the… Desolate race! Furthermore, she is a very important
figure in the Desolate race. After his sister’s identity was exposed,
this Yi Yun had actually desperately protected his sister to let her
escape. He gave a Desolate race spy a chance to launch a sneak attack.”
“And because of this, he was imprisoned. However, it seems that this Yi
Yun has something to do with the Shepherd Boy. A few days later, the
Shepherd Boy came personally, risking being besieged by Humans. He saved
Yi Yun and took him away, and because of this he had paid quite a sizable
“Hence, I suspect that Yi Yun is actually a Desolate race spy. He has
nefarious motives coming to our Lin family!”
Lin Fenggu gave a series of deductions, making Matriarch Lin’s frown
grow tighter, “Where did you hear that from?”
“That… ” Lin Fenggu hesitated before saying, “I went to the
dungeon to visit Shen Tu Nantian. It was Shen Tu Nantian who told me…
“Shen Tu Nantian!” Matriarch Lin’s eyebrows ticked upwards. She
would not easily believe Shen Tu Nantian’s words now. However, if he
had lied, it would be easily exposed. After all, there was Yi Yun’s
master, Su Jie, who could be questioned. Furthermore, sending someone to
the Eastern regions would allow them to easily find out.

“He has a Desolate race sister… ” Matriarch Lin knew that this was
likely true. As for Yi Yun covering for the Desolate race spy, Matriarch
Lin believed this was likely Lin Fenggu or Shen Tu Nantian deliberately
distorting the facts and making embellishments.
“Back then the person who imprisoned Yi Yun was Shen Tu Nantian,
Matriarch Lin understood the crux of the matter quickly. She knew that
Shen Tu Nantian was in the Eastern regions some time ago. Since he knew
so much about Yi Yun and in such clear detail, obviously Shen Tu Nantian
was personally involved in it.
“I see. Shen Tu Nantian has a feud with Yi Yun. No wonder he changed
his name, and even wore a mask.”
“Matriarch, you are indeed prophetic. That’s how it was!” Lin
Fenggu quickly continued while flattering her. “Hence, Yi Yun is using
our Lin family to get his revenge on Shen Tu Nantian in their personal
feud. He isn’t dedicated to the beneficial outcome of the Lin family.
His motives are not pure!”
“That evil little creature’s ties with the Desolate race isn’t
clear. He might even betray the Human race in the future. If you were to
ask me, we should quickly chase him out of the Lin family. If I had my
say, crippling his cultivation would be best to prevent any
“But then… I know Matriarch is kind. So although this evil little
creature has ulterior motives, the Lin family is slightly indebted to
him, so we can’t do anything to him.”
“However, if we were to chase him out of the Lin family, Shen Tu family
clan will naturally deal with him. At that moment, we will not be
criticized, and it would also prevent any repercussions. It’s killing
two birds with one stone.”
“Besides, that evil little creature is very greedy. He took Shen Tu
Nantian and the Thousand Hand Granny’s interspatial rings. He pocketed
all the good items in them for himself. Amongst the items included Shen
Tu Nantian’s companion sword, and the ancient Desolate Heaven technique
manual! If we are to chase him away, we need him to leave those behind!
Actually, Shen Tu Nantian and the Thousand Hand Granny were captured by
our Lin family and their cultivation was restrained by our Lin family.
The evil little creature had only provided a little information, so he
has no right to get all those benefits!”

“Matriarch, you should also know that the Desolate race has always been
eyeing the Human race. The moment we go to war, who knows what kind of
sabotage that evil little creature will commit. If at that moment, our
Lin family is still retaining the evil little creature, we would become a
sinner of the Human race!”
Lin Fenggu tried her best to let her imagination run wild as she
described various serious consequences to the Matriarch. This caused the
Matriarch’s expression to sullen slightly, “Did Shen Tu Nantain tell
you all of this?”
“U…” Lin Fenggu’s heart sank as she did not know how to respond.
From the way the Matriarch’s face had turned sullen, she did not know
what the Matriarch was thinking.
“No… Of course not.” Lin Fenggu quickly shook her head.
“Although Shen Tu Nantian is of poor character, he was involved in it
himself after all. What he said is worth exploring. But if you didn’t
hear them from what he said, then all of what you said was just your
The Matriarch’s tone changed, causing Lin Fenggu to jump with fright.
She hastily said, “But what I said isn’t impossible!
The Matriarch looked at Lin Fenggu with cold eyes, “The bunch of you
only gossip behind others’ back, and speak badly of someone in front of
me. Other than slandering talent, what else can you do!?”
“If the family only had people with such gossipy tongues, and no one
with ability, the Lin family would have fallen in the hands of the Shen
Tu family clan this time! In 10,000 years, our family could have been
“I… ” Lin Fenggu’s words seemed stuck. She opened her mouth, but
she did not know what to say. The Matriarch usually had extremely strong
stances, so before she raged, no one would know what she was thinking. If
one said words in a muddle headed fashion that did not agree with her
thoughts, the outcome would be terrible.

“Go face the wall and ponder over your misdeeds for ten days!”
Matriarch Lin’s voice was cold. Lin Fenggu wanted to say something, but
eventually, she swallowed her words, before obediently leaving.
After Lin Fenggu left, the Matriarch’s expression still didn’t look
In her heart, she was naturally biased towards Yi Yun.
In fact, she really liked Yi Yun. He was young and had excellent talent
in the Desolate Heaven technique. His future prospects were immeasurable.
His personal relations with Lin Xintong were also good.
Such a person would provide a lot of help for Lin Xintong in the future.
The Matriarch did not mind that Yi Yun had a Desolate race sister of a
different surname. However, she was afraid that he really was involved
with the Desolate race. Then, it would be like a precious piece of jade
that had a fatal flaw in it.
Hence, even though the Matriarch had reprimanded Lin Fenggu, she still
needed to investigate the matter regarding Yi Yun. Lin Fenggu’s words
were not enough to make her gullibly believe in them, but she too would
not gullibly believe Yi Yun just because of her personal preference.
“Send the order, get someone from the Family Rules Hall to see me.”

The Matriarch said to a maid servant.
The Lin family’s Family Rules Hall was responsible in maintaining the
family’s domestic discipline. Most of the time, they would also be sent
out to perform some missions.
The Matriarch had planned to let people from the Family Rules Hall travel
to the Eastern regions to investigate what had happened. She wanted to
know if Yi Yun’s actions had been anything out of the ordinary.
“Yes.” The maid servant retreated. The Matriarch could not feel
relaxed. She did not mind Yi Yun taking Shen Tu Nantian’s and the
Thousand Hand Granny’s items. She was afraid that because of his
relationship with the Desolate race, Yi Yun would favor the Desolate race.
That night, people from the Lin family’s Family Rules Hall set off. The
Matriarch did not summon Yi Yun to meet her, so Yi Yun carried on staying
on the Jade Bamboo peak.
However, three days later, people from the Shen Tu family clan came.
They were here to negotiate with the Lin family. They had also brought
the information regarding the Great Empress mystic realm!
