A Seraph's Heart?
Zhao Fu could clearly feel the intense Holy Light energy within it, and the Sky Demon Sword gave off groans of disgust. After all, angels and demons were enemies to the death, and the disgust that the Sky Demon Sword showed further demonstrated how powerful this Seraph's Heart was.
Zhao Fu did not have any use for the Seraph's Heart yet, so he decided to put it away for now and see if he could use it in the future.
Zhao Fu then returned to the real world and asked his bodyguard to notify the family leaders that he had woken up and could discuss with them. The bodyguard nodded, and just as he was about to leave, a yell sounded out from outside.
"Tell that bastard to let me in!"
Zhao Fu frowned, because he could tell that it was Feng Shiyu. The bodyguard looked over at Zhao Fu, who nodded, indicating that she could come in.
After the bodyguard left and let Feng Shiyu in, she stormed in and angrily glared at Zhao Fu, saying, "You already know my status; I'm Great Qin's Legatee's woman. Why do I need your permission to come in? Aren't you afraid of being punished by Great Qin's Legatee?"
Zhao Fu glanced at her and said, "Hurry up and speak if you have anything to say; if you don't, then leave. The Ying family's leaders will be coming soon to discuss important matters."
Feng Shiyu felt quite displeased and coldly harrumphed, but she understood that time was short so she asked, "Is the Legatee fine? Has he been hurt?"
Zhao Fu felt quite surprised that she would ask such a thing, but he replied, "He's fine, but why do you care so much?"
After hearing that Great Qin;s Legatee was fine, Feng Shiyu looked visibly relieved. She discourteously sat down on the sofa and replied, "He's my future man, so of course I care about him!"
"Really now? Aren't you angry that you're just a marriage alliance tool sent over by your family?" Zhao Fu asked.
"What is there to be angry about? Plus, I like Great Qin's Legatee's domineeringness and his terrifying aura. Also, have you told Great Qin's Legatee about me? What did he say?"
Feng Shiyu's words started off in a normal tone, but after saying the final sentence, she seemed a bit shy and looked at Zhao Fu expectantly.
Seeing how she looked, he couldn't help but inwardly laugh - when had she become so charming? However, facing her question, he replied, "I did, but he didn't say much."
"Really?" Feng Shiyu's expression dimmed, looking quite disappointed.
Seeing her like this, Zhao Fu said good-naturedly, "You've never seen Great Qin's Legatee before. He might not be what you think he's like!"
"Hmph!" However, Feng Shiyu harrumphed, "You must not have told him how good I was; with my looks, it's impossible for Great Qin's Legatee to not be interested. Plus, you dare to belittle Great Qin's Legatee? You're dead meat!"
Zhao Fu's good intentions were completely disregarded by Feng Shiyu, and he looked at her in frustration as he said, "What do you want?"
Feng Shiyu looked quite pleased as she crossed her arms. She smiled and said, "That's much better! In the future, you need to follow my orders and say good things about me to Great Qin's Legatee, as well as tell me what sort of women the Legatee likes, and..."
Seeing that Feng Shiyu had started rambling with no intention of stopping, Zhao Fu quickly stopped her.
"What? Aren't you afraid that I'll tell the Legatee what you said before and have you punished?" Feng Shiyu said as she looked at Zhao Fu threateningly.
Zhao Fu felt quite speechless. He could tell her that he was Great Qin's Legatee, so he said, "I'll ask Great Qin's Legatee to acknowledge you; that should be enough, right?"
Feng Shiyu was happy to the point that she excitedly laughed out loud. Afterwards, the Ying family's leaders entered, and Feng Shiyu decided to leave.
"What is it?" Zhao Fu asked as he looked at the family leaders.
"It's not much. We were just worried after hearing that Great Qin had been forced into retreating. Now that Great Qin has unified the Forest of Horrors, the path to Great Qin's restoration has begun, so everything must be going quite well. Is there anything that we can help with?" one of the family leaders said as he smiled at Zhao.
Zhao Fu thought about it and said, "There isn't anything you can help with right now, but the Ying family should focus on continuously developing and becoming more powerful. Perhaps you'll be able to help in the future."
The family leaders all nodded, signaling that they understood.
Another family then said, "What about the people staying outside the Ying family's residence? They've remained there for a long time, and after Great Qin was sent into retreat, many of the factions left, but they still chose to remain. They seem quite determined and eager to serve Great Qin. Can you ask His Majesty if we should continue to have them wait or to receive them?"
Zhao Fu did not answer immediately and instead thought for a while. He couldn't have them continue to stay outside, and it would be good for some factions to join Great Qin, as he felt that his forces were not powerful enough yet.
"The Legatee told me to give them an honorary title first, receive them into the Ying family, and list them as Great Qin's factions. However, this should be in name only, and if we are to truly use them, we must test them properly first!"
Hearing this, the family leaders all nodded again.
Zhao Fu then continued, "Can you tell me about all of the Ying family's forces? Don't leave anything out so that I can make adequate preparations in the future."
The family leaders did not hide anything, as Zhao Fu represented Great Qin's Legatee and it was most likely Great Qin's Legatee who had ordered him to ask, so they told him everything.
Zhao Fu listened intently but sighed after hearing everything. Zhao Fu was thinking about how to suppress the other Dynasty Legatees; he couldn't continue allowing Great Qin to suffer like this, but he could not think of anything.
Even though Great Qin was powerful in the Heaven Awaken World, it could only stay in the northern side of the Midland Continent and could not affect other places, so it could not suppress the other Dynasty Legatees.
The various Dynasty Legatees and factions used the real world to affect the Heaven Awaken World, while Great Qin's power was only in the Heaven Awaken World and Zhao Fu did not have any power in the real world.
Even though the Ying family was quite powerful and Zhao Fu could use the Ying family's power, it was not enough because Great Qin had too many enemies. With so many factions joined together, it was impossible for the Ying family alone to stand against them.
These factions were giving out rewards in the real world, attracting the ordinary people to resist Great Qin, and the Ying family could do nothing about this, as there were simply too many enemies. If they wanted to also give out quests and incentivize players to attack those factions, they would have to spend an astronomical amount due to the numbers of enemies. Moreover, the Ying family would have to bear all of that by themselves, while their enemies could split the costs among themselves.
Zhao Fu had no methods within the Heaven Awaken World or in the real world to suppress the other Dynasty Legatees, making him feel quite helpless.
