Huang Yanchen frowned. She said with doubt in her eyes, "There is no good fortune from the gods. I assume it is because of the small sacrifice from the Yunwu Commandery, and it was not approved."

"The sacrifice in the Qianshui Commandery is 100 times bigger than that in the Yunwu Commandery. There are tens of millions of cattle and sheep, and hundreds of thousands of savage beasts for the oblations. The Spiritual Blood they emanate is enough to cover the surrounding area within a thousand miles."

"With such sacrifice in the Yunwu Commandery, it's amazing that the god's manifestation appeared at all. Do you still want good fortune from the gods?"

Zhang Ruochen smiled, "Since there was no good fortune from the gods, what's the harm in missing the god's manifestation?

"You... " Huang Chenyan said.

The god's manifestation was a very sacred occasion. He was not taking it seriously at all, which made her angry. She did not want to talk about it with him anymore.

Huang Yanchen looked at Zhang Ruochen contemptuously and said, "You've recently secluded yourself for refinement. I guess there are a lot of things that you don't know."

"What has happened in Yunwu City while I was in seclution?" Zhang Ruochen asked.

Huang Yanchen said arrogantly, "The School of the Martial Market has sent six silver gowned Elders to the Tarantula Chamber of Commerce. They united with the Yuntai Suzerain, wiped out the headquarters of the Black Market and killed more than 5,000 Evil Warriors and captured more than 3,000, inflicting heavy losses on the Black Market. Other powers in the Black Market were almost completely annihilated except for the Hades Department and the Tarantula Chamber of Commerce itself."

Zhang Ruochen was shocked that the School of the Martial Market had sent six silver gowned Elders. They were Martial Arts masters in the Heaven Realm. They must have been very angry.

"What about the Moon Worship Demonic Sect?" Zhang Ruochen asked.

Huang Yanchen replied, "Except for the headquarters of the Moon Worship Demonic Sect, which has yet to be found, every gang of the Moon Worship Demonic Sect in Yunwu Commandery has almost been wiped out. Without them, the Moon Worship Demonic Sect has lost its power in the Yunwu Commandery. It won't be restored for decades."

"The payback on the Black Market and the Moon Worship Demonic Sect has ended. It's a pity that Young Lord of Poisonous Spider and Hua Minggong escaped. If I had caught them, I would have ripped them to pieces."

Huang Yanchen's five fingers were claw-shaped, exposing long fingernails. She hated the Tarantula Chamber of Commerce very much.

Huang Yanchen held back her anger. She said, "I'm going back to Devil Martial City, what about you?"

Zhang Ruochen shook his head and said, "I will stay in Yunwu City and return in a month."

Since Zhang Ruochen had just broken through the Martial Arts Realm, he didn't intend to go back to the School of the Martial Market so soon. He wished to strengthen his realm in Yunwu City and spent more time with his family.

There would be little time to come back in the future.

Huang Yanchen said, "Well! I have killed lots of Evil Warriors to exchange for merits when I get back to Devil Martial City. When I get the merits, I can exchange them for more practice resources. I have to increase my realm as soon as possible."

The next day, students from the School of the Martial Market and disciples from the Yuntai Suzerain were starting to leave the Yunwu Commandery.

Although Zhang Ruochen missed this big war and had lost the chance to earn more merits, he had no regrets. His cultivation had reached the Dawn State of the Earth Realm. That was something to be happy about!

After having breakfast with Concubine Lin, Zhang Ruochen saw Zhang Tiangui walking towards him as he walked out the palace.

Seeing Zhang Ruochen, Zhang Tiangui smiled and called out, "Ninth brother, what a coincidence. I was just about to come find you."

"What do you want to find me for?" Zhang Ruochen asked.

Zhang Tiangui replied, "It's not me who is looking for you, but rather my father. Follow me to the Sunglow Palace!"

Zhang Ruochen looked at Zhang Tiangui seriously. Although he thought that the smile on Zhang Tiangui's face was fake, he didn't think he would try and trick him in the palace. So, he followed him to the Sunglow Palace.

The Yunwu Commandery Prince was sitting above the Sunglow Palace wearing a golden gown. He had bright piercing eyes with Dragon and Tiger Breath around his body. It seemed that his martial cultivation had improved.

"Your Majesty!"

Everyone below saluted the Yunwu Commandery Prince.

The Yunwu Commandery Prince nodded and said, "The Black Market and the Moon Worship Demonic Sect have been defeated, but there are still Evil Warriors left. For the safety and stability of the Yunwu Commandery, those Evil Warriors must be wiped out completely. Last night, the Seventh Prince learned of Evil Warriors hiding in the Qinghe Castle, 150 kilometers away from Yunwu City."

"The Evil Warriors are very powerful. Among them are masters in the Completion of the Earth Realm. I have decided that the Seventh Prince and General Chihan shall lead 10,000 soldiers with 3,000 crossbows to wipe them out. What do you think?"

General Chihan went down on one knee and said, "Yes, Your Majesty."

Zhang Tiangui walked out, bowed before the Yunwu Commandery Prince and said, "Father, I just received a message from a junior fellow apprentice in the Yuntai Suzerain. The chief director Hua Minggong from the Tarantula Chamber of Commerce in the Yunwu Commandery has been found. Hua Minggong is a master in the Heaven Realm. Only I can defeat him. As for the Qinghe Castle, I suggest that the Ninth brother and General Chihan be sent to wipe them out."

The Yunwu Commandery Prince thought for a moment and nodded, "Hua Minggong is a myth of martial arts in the Heaven Realm. It is said that he was injured by the silver gowned Elder of the School of the Martial Market. Now is the time to attack. If we let him go, we may never find him again. I'm worried you won't be able to kill him by yourself, let Wan Chengchong go with you. You stand a much better chance if you two work together."

Every myth of martial arts in the Heaven Realm had extremely high cultivation and were very difficult to kill.

In order to kill a warrior in the Heaven Realm, you needed at least three warriors in the Heaven Realm working together. Or, one of the warriors in the Heaven Realm had to be over 10 times more powerful than their opponent.

The Yunwu Commandery Prince sent both Zhang Tiangui and Wan Chengchong to deal with Hua Minggong after careful consideration.

The Commandery Prince stared at Zhang Ruochen and asked, "Ninth son, would you like to go with General Chihan and attack Qinghe Castle?"

Zhang Ruochen had a bad feeling about this. It did not seem like a coincidence. Zhang Tiangui just happened to know there were Evil Warriors hiding in the Qinghe Castle, and also Hua Minggong's whereabouts? It all seemed a little too convenient.

It felt like Zhang Tiangui had wanted to send Zhang Ruochen and General Chihan to the Qinghe Castle all along.

"Ninth brother, the warriors in the Qinghe Castle are just a motley crew. The most powerful one of the Evil Warriors is in the Completion of the Earth Realm. Are you afraid? You can rest assured that even if there was any danger, General Chihan is with you, and is powerful enough to protect you," Zhang Tiangui said with a smile.

General Chihan had a beard, a thick, powerful back and broad shoulders. His cultivation had reached the Completion of the Earth Realm. He was a brave warrior in the army of the Yunwu Commandery, and was qualified to be one of the top 10 masters.

He struck his chest and said with a rough voice, "Ninth Prince, you can indeed rest assured. When we are at the Qinghe Castle, you can stay at the back and keep the troops in battle formation. I will burn the Qinghe Castle to the ground." "You will get the credit for killing the Evil Warriors. You can bring it to the School of the Martial Market and exchange it for a lot of merits."

In General Chihan's opinion, Zhang Ruochen was only a teenager who had never seen a major battle. It would be normal for him to be afraid.

But, he was a prince.

Even if they defeated the Qinghe Castle, the credit would belong to the Ninth Prince.

General Chihan knew that he couldn't count on the Ninth Prince to help suppress the Qinghe Castle. He could just stand there and receive all the credit.

After all, the Ninth Prince was still young and could not be compared to the Seventh Prince. The Seventh Prince had managed to kill a myth of martial arts in the Heaven Realm alone, and deserved to be the pride of the Yunwu Commandery. Along with being the top genius among the 36 commanderies in the Omen.

Although Zhang Ruochen felt that something was wrong, he was not afraid at all. With his current strength, he could match an ordinary myth of martial arts in the Heaven Realm.

Zhang Ruochen smiled, "In that case, I will go to the Qinghe Castle with you General Chihan."

Seeing that Zhang Ruochen had agreed, Zhang Tiangui smiled cunningly to himself.

After walking out of the palace, Zhang Ruochen and General Chihan rode on two savage beasts toward the barracks outside Yunwu City.

One hour later, General Chihan had gathered 10,000 cavalry and rushed toward the Qinghe Castle.

General Chihan rode on a red tiger 1,7 meters high. With thick armor on his body, he was an impressive sight. He was at the front of the army with a black Wolf's Fang Mace, which weighed 800 kilograms.

Zhang Ruochen was sitting in an elegant carriage, which was in the middle of the army and very well protected.

In the carriage, Zhang Ruochen was sitting on a soft mattress with a stove beside him. It was very comfortable.

"General Chihan is treating me like a genius prince and thinks that I'm here to steal the credit for this attack," Zhang Ruochen thought with a forced smile.

General Chihan had indeed misunderstood things. In his opinion, he could defeat the Evil Warriors in the Qinghe Castle by himself. The Yunwu Commandery Prince had sent the Ninth Prince with him, obviously to let him take the credit and exchange it for merits in the School of the Martial Market.

His mission was to attack the Qinghe Castle and protect the Ninth Prince.

So, he treated him as a rich man's son and protected him very well. He was so afraid that the Ninth Prince would get hurt by the Evil Warrior.

Qinghe Castle was 150 kilometers away from Yunwu City. With the speed of the cavalry, they reached it in two hours and surrounded it.

Qinghe Castle was a medium sized castle, with an area of 160,000 square meters and a wall 10 meters high.

Qinghe Castle was a stronghold for the Tarantula Chamber of Commerce.

Most of the goods of the Tarantula Chamber of Commerce were transported from all over the country to Qinghe Castle. Then they were sent to the black market in Yunwu City to trade.

After escaping from Yunwu City, Young Lord of Poisonous Spider and Hua Minggong immediately rushed to the Qinghe Castle. They prepared to move the goods stockpiled in castle and flee.

However, the army of the Yunwu Commandery had surrounded the castle before they could get away.

Zhang Tiangui knew that Young Lord of Poisonous Spider and Hua Minggong were at the Qinghe Castle, that's why he sent Zhang Ruochen to attack it. His plan was to have them kill Zhang Ruochen.
