Note: The order is fixed now. Yay!
Of course, it was impossible for people to figure out the true identity of Great Qi's mysterious Legatee. His true identity had been one of the greatest mysteries of the human world, and now that this secret was exposed, the shockwaves it caused were massive.
No one would have expected that the lucky person Great Qin's Legatee had chosen, Zhao Fu, would actually be Great Qin's Legatee himself.
This was because Zhao Fu was simply too plain and ordinary, and he seemed like a minor figure.
Even though Zhao Fu had become Great Qin's Legatee's representative, causing everyone to know of him, everyone believed him to just be a puppet. How could anyone take him seriously? No one cared about someone like him.
From the leaders of countries to the countless Legatees, everyone was completely flabbergasted, including Si Ji, Tina Pendragon, Akhenaten, and Geoffrey.
No one could have expected that Great Qin's incredibly evil, vicious, and bloodthirsty Legatee would be such an ordinary, minor figure. If such a person appeared in front of them, they would not even bother looking at him.
At the same time, many people respected such an ordinary person who had no resources being able to single handedly create the Great Qin Empire.
Some people also felt quite regretful. They had never expected that Great Qin's Legatee, who the Ying family had been looking for this entire time, had been hiding within the Ying family this entire time. If they had known about this, they would have joined together to destroy the Ying family; that way, they would have been able to kill Great Qin's Legatee.
It was a pity that there was no medicine for curing regret. Those people could only sigh; Great Qin had already taken over half of the Midland Continent, and their futures would be quite dark with no light or hope.
After hearing about Great Qin's Legatee's true identity, many factions felt quite regretful and shocked as well. There was one faction that simply could not accept this to be true, and this was naturally Great Tang's Li family.
When the Li family's old patriarch heard that his illegitimate child was actually Great Qin's Legatee, he felt as if his head had been hit by a hammer, and he went completely blank. He then coughed up a mouthful of blood and seemed to age ten or so years. His eyes became incredibly hollow, and his entire person seemed to wither.
Li Zhe, Zhao Fu's father, had an extremely unsightly and shocked look on his face. He had never thought that a woman he just played with would be able to give birth to such a terrifying figure. That annoying, lowly bastard was actually Great Qin's Legatee.
Li Baiqing was also indescribably shocked. He had never thought that that minor figure, someone he did not even consider worthy for him to look at, someone who he considered not good enough to even call him big brother, was Great Qin's Legatee, whose name resounded throughout the world.
The entire Li family seemed to be covered by a dark haze, and everyone's faces were extremely pale. They all felt immense terror and despair, and their bodies trembled. If there was a list of factions that Great Qin's Legatee wanted to destroy, the Li family would be at the very top of the list. After all, everything the Li family had done to Zhao Fu would definitely be paid back ten times over by him.
Back then, Li Zhe had thrown away Zhao Fu and his mother. Zhao Fu had decided not to pursue this matter and live peacefully, but the Li family's old patriarch had given the order for Zhao Fu to be killed. He had shown no mercy, and despite the first assassination failing, he had tried again.
This sort of hatred definitely could not be placated; once Zhao Fu decided to repay the debt, everyone in the Li family would die, and Great Tang might even perish at his hands.
After going through some emergency medical treatment, the Li family's old patriarch's complexion slightly recovered, but his face was incredibly pale. He quickly gathered everyone to discuss this matter.
Now, the Li family's bastard had become Great Qin's Legatee. This person, who they had all looked down on and thought they could kill easily, had achieved such great accomplishments, and he definitely harbored great hatred towards the Li family.
If they did not deal with this matter seriously, the Li family's people would not only die, but they would also die horrible deaths. This was because the ones Zhao Fu hated the most were the Li family. No matter how powerful his other enemies were, they could not compare to the reasons the Li family had given him to hate them.
Everyone gathered together, and the Li family's old patriarch sighed before saying, "What should we do? Do we have to watch Great Tang be destroyed at this bastard's hands?"
An elderly woman looked at the Li family's old patriarch with a blaming glare and said, "Back then, I told you to control that son of yours. You said that as a man, he needs to have his fun and that as your son, it's only right that he's like this. If you raised him properly, this would never have happened.
"Back then, I also told you to take in that mother and son. With the Li family's finances, we would not even notice them being here. However, you were adamant on not taking them in because you said that this was a humiliation to the Li family.
That child has such talent, and if he was willing to serve the Li family, how bright would our future have been? Right now, it might not have been Great Qin conquering the world but Great Tang unifying the world.
"Without him, how could Great Qin have become so terrifying? It was you who delivered such an amazing person to the Ying family for free. How did the Ying family become so lucky to obtain such a shocking person?"
Hearing this, the Li family's old patriarch felt indescribably regretful. If he had kept that mother and son back then, Great Tang would be in a completely different position; it might really have been Great Tang unifying the world, as opposed to Great Qin.
Even his favorite grandson, the most excellent person in the Li family, paled in comparison to Great Qin's Legatee. If he could go back in time, he definitely would not have made the same decision.
However, there was no turning back now. The Li family's old patriarch now felt quite angry; if he had been crueller and killed the mother and son from the beginning, things would not have turned out like this, and the Li family would not be in such a crisis.
Sitting by the side, Li Baiqing felt quite displeased as well. The reality was that he was indeed inferior to Zhao Fu. His half-brother, Great Qin's Legatee, had struck fear into his heart for a long time, and he knew clearly that he would never surpass him in his lifetime; he could not compare to even a single finger on Great Qin's Legatee's hand. When he thought of this, Li Baiqing's expression became quite unsightly.
Sitting beside him, there was an extremely beautiful and sexy, yet dignified, woman. She held Li Baiqing's cold hand and gently smiled at him as she said comfortingly, "Bai Qi, you're the most outstanding person in the world; I don't think that Great Qin's Legatee is great at all. I only like you, and this is why I chose you back then."
This woman was Yang Yuyan, the fifth-ranked woman on the Ancient Beauty Rankings. She was the descendant of Consort Yang. Back then, only she and Wu Qingniang had not chosen to join any Dynasty Legatees, but in the end, she had joined Great Tang and become Li Baiqing's woman. She was deeply loved by Li Baiqing and was currently his only woman.
