Chapter 434: The Fengyun Empire (3)

Yun Feng suddenly smiled when she heard that.
She gracefully looked at the leaders of the two families who wore thoughtful expressions.
To discuss the future of the empire with the Yun family? That’s an interesting proposal.

“What does the Yun family have to do with the future of the empire? You two families should take over everything of the Karan Empire.
I think the Yun family is not worthy enough to decide the future of the empire.”

De Lan and Shang Lian both smiled at Yun Feng.
“Yun Feng, you’re being too modest.
Is there anyone who doesn’t know how loyal the Yun family was to the empire? The royal family had themselves to blame for what happened to them.”

Yun Feng could tell the indignity and mockery in De Lan’s words.
Getting to the bottom of it, the two families had dutifully served the Karan Royal Family for years too, and were quite close to the royal family.
However, it was not until Yun Feng roared the truth of the international contest that they finally realized that the Karan Royal Family had only been taking advantage of them.
Even though they were appreciated on the surface, they were never informed of the shocking secret.
Naturally, they had every reason to hate the Karan Royal Family for monopolizing all the treasures.

“Are you worried about the Yun family’s public image? Hehe.
Don’t worry about that.
We will appease those people.” Shang Lian chuckled, and De Lan nodded.
Yun Sheng and Yun Jing were both silent.
Both of them relied on Yun Feng’s opinion.
She would be the one who would make the final decision.

The Yun family destroyed the royal family in the capital overnight, which was definitely shocking news.
Yun Feng knew very well how other people would think of the Yun family.
It was inappropriate for the Yun family to get involved in such things yet, or it would become a public enemy.
Its reputation of loyalty would all be gone.
Although the two old guys had come courteously, they weren’t really humble.
They were probably here only to make a gesture.
If the Yun family were truly to rise to the top, they wouldn’t be happy.

“Thank you for protecting the honor of the Yun family.
I appreciate it,” Yun Feng smiled and said modestly.
De Lan and Shang Lian both felt comfortable to hear that.
“Yun Feng, you’re being too kind.
We’re only doing what we should.
About our proposal…” De Lan raised his brows and stared at Yun Feng, waiting for her answer.

“Thank you for respecting us, but the Yun family is not nearly as powerful or influential as your families.
This matter is so important that you should discuss between yourselves.
If you need the Yun family’s advice, we’ll gladly offer it, but you have to make the final decision.”

Both De Lan and Shang Lian were delighted, but they pretended to persuade Yun Feng again.
Yun Feng patiently refused them several more times, until they finally gave up.
Both De Lan and Shang Lian seemed to be in a good mood.
“Yun Feng, you are an excellent junior.
Shang Lian and I like you.
If it’s fine with you, let’s respect each other as peers!”

Yun Feng smiled.
“Then as you wish.”

“Haha! The Yun family is truly different! It’s time that the Karan Empire’s name be changed.
Right, the Yun family has done a lot.
What do you want in return?”

Yun Feng smiled.
She did have something she wanted, and it was obvious that she could ask for it.
“Now that you’ve mentioned it, I’ll just be straightforward.
Chunfeng Town is the Yun family’s root.
I want to have this place.”

Both De Lan and Shang Lian were stunned.
They expected the Yun family to ask for ores, guards, gold, or something else, but certainly not a place! De Lan managed a smile.
“If you want it, Yun Feng, you’ll have it.”

Shang Lian slightly frowned.
Chunfeng Town was just a remote place anyway.
It would be fine even if the Yun family had it.
Shang Lian also nodded.
“This place will belong to the Yun family.
Let’s call it Yun Town in the future.”

Yun family smiled.
“Guys, the Yun family has never been interested in politics.
We simply want to live a peaceful life in our town.
Please grant our wish.”

What she said made De Lan and Shang Lian change their expression.
Was the Yun family going to be independent and isolated? If so, Yun Feng’s identity as a summoner would be no good.
They might suffer losses if the other three empires were to attack.

Another reason why De Lan and Shang Lian were adulating Yun Feng was to make Yun Feng take their side.
The Karan Empire was in turmoil after the royal family’s fall.
Although the two families had stabilized the situation, the country wouldn’t be truly safe from the invasion of other empires until it was protected by a summoner.

“Don’t worry.
Whenever you need my help, feel free to talk to me,” said Yun Feng with a smile.
The two families were different from the Karan Royal Family.
They were competitors to each other, and they treated the Yun family courteously.
They certainly wouldn’t dare to regard the Yun family as servants.
The two sly old foxes knew that Yun Feng wouldn’t tolerate that.
That was exactly why the Karan Royal Family was doomed.

Both De Lan and Shang Lian were relieved.
Nothing reassured them better than that.
We’re reassured now that you’ve promised that, Yun Feng! We’ll surely restore the reputation of the Yun family!”

De Lan and Shang Lian then said goodbye and returned to the capital at night.
After they left, the three members of the Yun family changed their seats.
Yun Jing took the main seat, and Yun Sheng and Yun Feng sat aside.

“Feng, is this really appropriate?” asked Yun Jing in a low voice.

Yun Feng smiled.
“The Yun family cannot stay isolated, so we will just stand on the subtle balance point.
The De family and the Shang family will surely hold each other back.
Both of them will try to appeal to the Yun family.
The Yun family is as powerful as any empire right now.
The other three empires have to treat the Yun family with respect.
This balance is exactly what I need.”
