Chapter 382 – Proof

Ying Qin watched all of this in disbelief, and his grin disappeared. How could Zhao Fu be in contact with Great Qin’s Legatee? The situation had changed too quickly.
Sometime later, within East Green, a few members of the Ying family nervously and excitedly walked into a restaurant.
Because the paths to different regions hadn’t been opened up yet and the family leaders weren’t in East Green, they were unable to meet Great Qin’s Legatee themselves. As such, they could only send the family members in East Green to meet him.
Having been given such an important task, these people felt both anticipation and nervousness – after all, Great Qin’s Legatee was a legendary existence to people like them.
After coming to a room, they saw a few guards giving off powerful auras. Feeling these auras, the Ying family’s people felt quite dismayed.
The guards looked at them before asking them if they were the Ying family’s people. They quickly nodded, and the door slowly opened,
The Ying family’s people cautiously entered the room, and they saw a man in a black cloak giving off a powerful aura sitting there.
“Sir, are you Great Qin’s Legatee?” Feeling this powerful aura, the Ying family’s people started to sweat cold sweat. They felt incredibly afraid, but because they had a task, they cautiously asked him this question.
Zhao Fu looked at them and nodded.
One of the Ying family’s people then hesitantly asked, “Is there anything that can be used as proof of Your Majesty’s identity?”
In the end, they still needed to see something that would prove that this person was Great Qin’s Legatee, or anyone could make such a claim. Even though this person’s aura was terrifyingly powerful, they still needed to make sure.
Hearing this, Zhao Fu stretched out his hand, and the image of the Twelve Metal Colossi appeared in the air as he said, “Is this enough to prove my identity?”
Seeing the Twelve Metal Colossi and the massive killing intent it gave off, the Ying family’s people were certain that this person was Great Qin’s Legatee. After all, apart from Great Qin’s Legatee, who could possess Great Qin’s Nation Armament, the Twelve Metal Colossi?
Now that they had confirmed his identity, the Ying family’s people immediately knelt in respect and fear as they said, “We pay our respects to Your Majesty! Please forgive us for any offenses previously.”
Zhao Fu did not mind and calmly said, “You may rise!”
Hearing this, the Ying family’s people let out a breath and stood up together with their heads lowered, looking extremely deferential.
At that moment, Zhao Fu continued to say with a trace of anger, “The atmosphere at the Ying family is simply disgusting; I’m disappointed in all of you!”
Sensing Zhao Fu’s anger, the Ying family’s people were scared into kneeling again, their foreheads pressed against the ground, and they didn’t dare to even breathe.
“You should understand that the Ying family’s existence doesn’t matter to me. Before, I had no intention of returning to the Ying family. However, because the Ying family is the royal family of Great Qin and I am a part of Great Qin, I can consider returning in the future. However, you must treat Zhao Fu well because I have made him my representative. He has a pure Great Qin bloodline and can manage everything in the Ying family on my behalf.
“That concludes everything today. If the Ying family wants to contact me, they can contact Zhao Fu, and anything I want to say will also be communicated through Zhao Fu. You may leave now!”
The Ying family’s people kneeling on the ground let out a sigh of relief and quickly left. Only after they reached the street again were they able to completely relax.
One of them sighed and said, “The Ying family’s going to completely change now. Who would have thought a collateral family member would be chosen by Great Qin’s Legatee and be able to control everything in the Ying family; he’s simply too lucky.”
Another replied, “Let’s not speak of this in the future. Now that Zhao Fu is so highly valued by Great Qin’s Legatee, he’s already above the rest of us. Let’s be careful, and perhaps we’ll be able to gain the favor of Great Qin’s Legatee through him in the future. If that happens, we’ll be able to reap great benefits.”
Hearing this, the others nodded in agreement.
After returning to the Ying family in the real world, they told the Ying family what Great Qin Legatee’s had said to the family leaders, making them feel both excited and worried.
They were excited that Great Qin’s Legatee had expressed that he may return to the Ying family in the future, but they were also worried that he was dissatisfied with the Ying family.
However, they had made great progress and had at least made contact with Great Qin’s Legatee. The family leaders soon made an important announcement, saying, “From today onwards, Zhao Fu will be the proxy family leader and will control all matters within the Ying family!”
This was in order to fulfill the promise they had made that previously, which was that if Great Qin’s Legatee returned to the Ying family, he would become the next family leader. This was only natural because Great Qin’s Legatee had obtained Great Qin’s legacy and the right to be the next family leader.
Since Zhao Fu was Great Qin’s Legatee’s representative, he had the right to act as the proxy family leader. Adding on the fact that he had King’s Fate, this was permissible. The family leaders wanted to show Great Qin’s Legatee just how devoted they were towards him.
This announcement caused the entire Ying family to explode. Everyone looked completely dumbfounded – Zhao Fu had been made the seventh young master, and he was now the proxy family leader. This was simply too astonishing.
Even Zhao Fu felt quite surprised – he had just wanted to resolve his crisis, yet the family leaders had made such an announcement. Qiu Fengzi smiled, knowing what had happened, but he didn’t say anything.
“Impossible! How can he become the proxy family leader!” Ying Qin shouted in disbelief.
Zhao Fu coldly gazed at him. Since he wielded the highest authority in the Ying family now, he immediately said, “Carry out my orders! Expel this person from the Ying family and revoke his position of young master.”
This order sent waves throughout the entire Ying family – Zhao Fu was expelling the Ying family’s number one successor and removing his status. It was evident how ruthless Zhao Fu was.
A few guards went over to Ying Qin and grabbed him as he continuously struggled. “Let me go! I’m the Ying family’s number one successor.”
The guards seemed completely indifferent because the other family leaders had already announced Zhao Fu to be the proxy family leader. Seeing that the other family leaders had no intention of stepping in, they started to drag Ying Qin away, preparing to throw him out.
Seeing this, the family leaders sighed, but if this appeased Great Qin’s Legatee, it would all be worth it.
Now, the entire Ying family fell silent, and no one dared to say anything. If even the number one successor had his status removed and was expelled from the Ying family, who would dare to offend Zhao Fu?
Zhao Fu swept his gaze across everyone before it rested on Ying Wu. From the beginning, Zhao Fu hadn’t minded him, but he had used the name of Great Qin’s Legatee to commit various evils and had even tried to oppose him today. It wasn’t Zhao Fu’s fault for now taking his revenge.
