Chapter 342: Revelation (5)

“This house is honored by your presence, Your Majesty.” Yun Jing bowed at the man respectfully, and the man laughed.
Yun Sheng was dazed, and Yun Feng gazed at him curiously.
The emperor didn’t look at Yun Jing, but just stared at Yun Feng.
He was stunned for a moment when he saw Yun Feng’s face.

“The Yun family is truly a family of geniuses.
A second summoner has emerged in your family.
It’s truly fortuitous for the Karan Empire…” The emperor chuckled.
None of the three members of the Yun family said anything.
The emperor chuckled again and said, “Why are we still standing here? Come on in.”

He was speaking as if he were the host.
As an emperor, he did carry a unique vibe.
Yun Jing, Yun Feng and Yun Sheng looked at each other, and all walked in.
Little Fire followed them into the yard too.
The soldiers of the Yun Army were finally relieved.
They were anxious with a racing heart until just now.

The emperor walked in the yard as comfortably as if he were wandering the royal palace.
They all entered a room and sat down.
The butler withdrew respectfully.
Little Fire, on the other hand, stood next to Yun Feng and gazed at the emperor.
It instinctively felt that this man had a plot against its master.

After they all sat down, the emperor smiled.
“The Yun family has truly been thriving.
Your guards are quite astonishing.
They’re almost stronger than the Royal Army, right?”

Yun Jing frowned.
“Thank you for your compliment, Your Majesty.
The Yun family is honored to have those soldiers.”

While Yun Jing replied, Yun Feng scanned the environment carefully, and detected a powerful yet inconspicuous vibe in a corner of the room.
The emperor was indeed not easy to deal with.
He was not completely candid with the Yun family.
Yun Feng sneered.
Would the Yun family do anything sneaky? Only the sneaky people of the Karan Royal Family would think that.

Little Fire detected something too, and somehow became anxious.
The emperor smiled again.
During this visit, he had been quite friendly and approachable, and didn’t really look like an emperor.
“Life hasn’t been easy for the Yun family for years.
But I’m sure that you understand the royal family, Leader Yun.”

Yun Jing managed a smile, and the emperor continued.
“I’m very glad to see the rise of the Yun family.
The better the Yun family develops, the more promising the Karan Empire’s future will be.
After all, every summoner is a great treasure of the Karan Empire.
Don’t you agree, Leader Yun?”

Yun Jing’s face was stiffened.
He glanced at his daughter, and suddenly wished that Yun Feng weren’t a summoner.
His daughter deserved a better life than working for the royal family for her entire life! Yun Feng smiled.
“Your Majesty, summoners are free.
Everybody on this continent knows that.”

Summoners were free, because they were special.
They could go wherever they wanted to.
That was a universal rule on this continent.
The emperor seemed gloomy for a moment, and then became sunny again.
“Alright, let’s talk about that later.
Your daughter is so young and yet so talented that the kids of the royal family should feel ashamed.
I think she should visit the royal family more often and help me teach those worthless kids, what do you think?”

Yun Jing smiled.
Teach the royal family’s kids? That’s truly a subtle way of saying things… “Yun Feng, what do you think?”

Yun Feng chuckled.
“Your wish is my command, Your Majesty.
But some members of the royal family are actually quite excellent.
For example, Princess Kasa.”

The emperor immediately looked rather embarrassed.
Yun Sheng coughed.
His dear sister spoke so bluntly to the emperor.
She was truly… The emperor smiled and said, “Yun Feng is not wrong.
As part of the Karan Empire, the Yun family should get closer with the royal family.
Yun Feng should come tomorrow.
You can bond with the kids of the royal family.”

The emperor stood, and didn’t seem to be staying.
He glanced at Little Fire and asked, “Oh? Is this the Magic Beast you’ve contracted? It’s truly extraordinary.”

Yun Feng smiled.
The emperor then looked at Meatball on Yun Feng’s shoulder.
“Is this one a pet? Yun Feng is just a kid anyway, right?”

Meatball turned around in disdain, and aimed its butt at the emperor’s face.
The emperor laughed and walked away.
At the door, he suddenly turned around and asked mysteriously, “Yun Feng, do you know about Fantastical Beasts?”

Yun Feng was dazed.
The emperor chuckled, and left without saying anything else.
Little Fire stood straight and asked Yun Feng telepathically, “Does that human know about Fantastical Beasts?”

Yun Feng pursed her lips.
She remembered what Uncle Jin told her about the existence of Fantastical Beasts, even though most humans were uncertain of that.
Since the emperor mentioned them a moment earlier, did he know something about the Fantastical Beasts?

The Fantastical Beasts were absolutely useless to warriors and mages, but they were lethally intriguing to the summoners.
It was just like doing drugs.
People often couldn’t get rid of it even though they knew it was dangerous.
Even her master had tried to capture one of such beasts, only to get heavily wounded.

Fantastical Beasts… Yun Feng mumbled and suddenly thought of a possibility.
Was the emperor implying that a Fantastical Beast had appeared on this continent?

“Master, he’s plotting against you,” Little Fire’s voice came.
Yun Feng smiled.
How could she not be aware of the emperor’s scheme? As she expected, the Karan Royal Family would try to let the Yun family connect to it, or to make sure that she needed something from the royal family.
Now that she had revealed herself as a summoner, how could the royal family let her go easily? If Yun Feng declined the offer, she would face the Karan Empire’s relentless hunting.

“Yes, I know, but if he does have information regarding the Fantastical Beasts, it doesn’t matter even if he’s plotting.
I won’t suffer any loss anyway.”
