Nan Yan was following him closely, too nervous to even breathe.
Without warning, a squeak sound was heard. The Jian Fu’s door had opened.
Jian Tongguang, with the Jian Family’s members behind him, appeared at the door.
Zhu Feng walked towards the door and and in front of itstood still.
Jian Tongguang looked at him.. Finally, he, he raised his hands, cupped them, and respectfully bowed to him:”This common official Jian Tongguang pays his respects to His Highness, Yan Wang.”
After the words were said, he knelt on the ground.
This salute, although it was only a gentle salute, made everyone present subsequently feel like the ground was shaken.
All the people present had an understanding that Jian Tongguang had realigned his allegiance towards Yan Wang, Zhu Feng !
Then immediately after, those who were behind Jian Tongguang; Jian Ruocheng, Jian Ruojun and in addition to Madam Jiahe, they all bowed one by one. All speaking together the same sentence: “Paying respect to His Highness, Yan Wang!”
Behind them, the people who had been stunned by the appearance of His Highness, Yan Wang were at this moment without exception were all astonished with eyes wide open. If someone was looking at this scene. They would see in a large area, hundreds of people gathered. However, at this moment not even a little noise could be heard.
Nan Yan only felt hot tears welling up in her eyes and blurring her vision.
The life of the Jian family has been preserved.
The whole family, young and old. Even the lives of ten clans and even the will of all scholars in the world have been preserved!
As for Zhu Feng who was standing in front of them, his face still did not have much of an expression at this moment. He suddenly turned around and glanced at Nan Yan. Nan Yan was somewhat flabbergasted when she saw him looking at her. At this moment, those cold eyes seems to have signs of melting away the ice and snow.
Moreover, there was even a surprising feeling of warmth in those eyes.
But at once, the warmth passed away as if it had not existed. He turned around, stepped up, and raised his hand, saying:
“Old Master Jian, you may dispense with courtesy.”
Jian Tongguang slowly straightened up.
Zhu Feng explained:
“Now that Master Jian has opened the gate;reversed your position, does that mean that this respected old man has understood what this Prince was asking for? That day, together with Master Jian. What you said—— “
He had not finished, when Jian Tongguang suddenly said: “What His Highness, Yan Wang demands, this old man understands. But this old man has three requirements, asking His Highness to answer positively.”
Nan Yan’s heart could not help but jump again.
Zhu Feng frowned and was silent all of a sudden before stating:“You want this Prince to answer positively to your three requirements? What are the requirements?”
Jian Tongguang pointed the cane towards the floor first, stating:
“Your Highness at your side there are many soldiers and though they are brave and good at fighting, but they can not be biased in ruling the country. Asking Your Highness to bestow new rules for elections for talented court officials from the successful candidates in the imperial provincial examination.”
Zhu Feng’s brows which had been wrinkled, relaxed slightly:
“Bestow favorable rules for elections, for talented court officials from the successful candidates in the imperial provincial examination. This Prince can do this for you.”
“Second,” Jian Tongguang again pointed his cane towards the ground:
“In those days, the Central Plains was invaded by the Tan country, Emperor Gao was fighting from all four quarters. He was able to create a great flame that did not exist in the world, his accomplishments cover Han’s martial arts, and his kindness was associated with the sages Yao and Shun. But after decades of war, the people’s livelihood was reduced to destitution, and the cultural context was on the verge of breaking apart. This old man is asking His Highness to gather all of the gifted scholars with knowledge and compile a huge book to continue Huaxia’s cultural context.”
Zhu Feng’s brows relaxed again.
He nodded his head and said: “This Prince also had the same idea to compile a huge book. But not just the meritorious deeds of the present age but also the experiences in the future. This is a major event and also a good thing, this Prince agrees.”
Hearing that two of the requirements were both agreed upon, Nan Yan let out a long sigh.
Jian Tongguang had really come around. Therefore he did not embarrass His Highness, Yan Wang again. To put forward these requirements, it was also for the court and for the sake of the world.
Zhu Feng said:
“I do not know what the third requirements is Old Master Jian?
The two important events were finished. At this time, Jian Tongguang was somewhat hesitant. Nan Yan felt that he seemed to have looked up and that he had looked at her.
What was wrong?
Nan Yan looked at the Jian Tongguang in amazement. Then she heard him pause for a long moment, all of a sudden followed by him saying:
“The third requirement is my presumptuous request.”
Zhu Feng frowned slightly:
“This old man wants to ask Your Highness for this girl.”
As he said this, his hand was lifted and pointed towards Nan Yan.
Zhu Feng’s eyes sank.
“You want her for what? “
“I would like to ask Your Highness’ permission to ask her to marry my son, Ruocheng.”
