 Chapter 1020: Asking for Retirement

Translator: Iris8197 Editor: Rock

Everyone looked at Yun Luofeng, their eyes mixed with shock, doubt, and adoration.

They had thought that it was rare for her to win the first place in both medical and martial contests, but it never occurred to them that beast taming was what she was really good at.

She just stood there doing nothing and the beasts knelt down and bowed to her!

Who else in the world was capable of this?

"Is the contest over?"

Her languid voice finally brought the stunned referee back to his senses.

He wiped the sweat from his face again and said with a wry smile, "You are already the champion."

However, because of this special condition, he couldn't rank the other countries' players. It seemed that he had to inform His Majesty to arrange another contest for the players of the other countries.

"Let's go."

Yun Luofeng shrugged, turned around, stepped out of the ring, and slowly walked to the side of Ye Ximo and others.

"The contest is over. Elder Brother, take the prize. Now I'm leaving for a rest. Let's set off for home tomorrow!"

There were generous prizes for each contest, and Yun Luofeng won three contests in succession.

At the thought of this, everyone looked at Yun Luofeng with awe...

After this time, the Tianyun Kingdom's status among the countries would be greatly boosted.

...

In the inner courtyard of the Imperial Palace, Long Yuan, who was reviewing the ministers' reports in the imperial study, heard the report about the beast taming from the subordinates and fell silent.

He had a strange feeling that he might have made a wrong decision to become the enemy of Yun Luofeng! However, what had been done couldn't be undone, and he could only bite the bullet!

Suddenly, a eunuch rushed in and reported, "Your Majesty, Master Qing Mu asks to see you."

Long Yuan frowned and said expressionlessly, "Let him in. I'd like to know why he came here."

The eunuch took his order and left, and soon Qing Mu, cyan-robed, came in from the outside. He made an obeisance and came straight to the point, "Your Majesty, I am already old, so I often feel powerless working in the Imperial Hospital. I hereby beg Your Majesty to allow me to retire."

Long Yuan paused. He had long wanted to get rid of this old man. However, when he came for resignation himself, it just didn't feel right. So he asked with a cold face, "Qing Mu, is it because the Wushuang Empire and the Liuyue Empire are wooing you? So you decided to serve them?"

He didn't mention the other countries... because those small countries couldn't offer conditions attractive enough to Qing Mu. Those that were able to poach Qing Mu could only be the two empires.

Qing Mu hung his head and made an obeisance again, "Your Majesty, I can give a written pledge promising not to join the Wushuang Empire or the Liuyue Empire after I leave, so Your Majesty can rest assured."

Hearing this, Long Yuan nodded, "Qing Mu, since you are determined to leave, I permit you to retire!"

"Thank you very much, Your Majesty."

Qing Mu raised the corners of his lips and gave a relaxed smile.

He finally unloaded his burden and was able to live the life he longed for from now on.

After Qing Mu left the Imperial Study, just when Long Yuan was going to continue to review the reports, a eunuch came in and reported that Ge Yang was asking to see him.

Long Yuan frowned and a bad feeling arose in his heart. He raised his head, with a sharp gleam in his dark eyes.

Ge Yang wanted to see him? Did the old guy want to resign too?

However, while Long Yuan was thinking about it, Ge Yang rushed in from outside in a panic and fell on his knees in front of Long Yuan with a bang.
