    Chapter 82: Letter-writing

    "Mother, Sister-in-law. Also, Shuyan and Shubing, stay in the inner wing and do not wander around." Qin Yun exhorted.

    "Don't worry, we will not be a hindrance," Changlan said immediately. She knew it was a critical moment. The local county governor who wielded absolute power was now dealing with their Qin family.

    Changlan and his sister-in-law carried a child each and entered the inner wing.

    The inner wing was about three hundred square meters and Hong Lingtong was busy setting up an array formation.

    On the other hand, Qin Yun walked into a study. There were paper, brushes and ink blocks on the table. Immediately, he poured water into the ink slab and prepared the ink. After it was done, he took a brush hanging off a brush rack and dabbed some ink to begin writing.

    "Little Marquis Lord, I've been back in Grand Dominance for half a year. Now, I have something to request of you..." Qin Yun wrote his first letter.

    Little Marquis Lord was one of his friends he had gotten to know in the northern borders. He was one of the many cultivators mixed in the group and everyone went through life and death together to fend against the demon horde! Later on, Philo-Marquis Manor from the Jin Prefecture came to capture Little Marquis Lord. Only then did Qin Yun and his other friends learn that one of their companions was the sixth son of the reigning Philo-Marquis.

    After he finishing his first letter, Qin Yun immediately took out another piece of paper to write a second letter.

    "Old General Wang, I, Qin Yun, can only brazenly ask for your help..." Qin Yun wrote a second letter.

    Old General Wang was an old general that was in charge of his camp back in his time at the northern border. The old general had thought highly of Qin Yun, who went to the northern borders to risk his life.

    After finishing his second letter...

    Qin Yun pondered for a moment before writing his third letter. "Lord Wen..." He wrote to the previous county governor.

    "My ties with County Governor Wen doesn't really run deep. All I did was retrieve the fruit for him and kill Water God to expedite his promotion. In terms of friendship, it's incomparable to Little Marquis Lord and Old General Wang." Qin Yun thought to himself. "But he's after all Grand Dominance County's previous county governor. My father had been working for him in the past, so if my father is said to have colluded with demons, isn't it a smack in County Governor Wen's face?"

    "County Governor Wen owes me a favor so I believe he will help me." Qin Yun thought. "Although he has been promoted to a high post, with him being promoted twice to a fourth-grade official, he is only an official of the Qian Prefecture. He cannot deal with County Governor Gongye... However, he has the South Hill's Wen family backing him. If he can submit a written petition to the imperial government, it will likely be of some use."

    "Three letters."

    Qin Yun looked at the three letters in front of him. "As for Yi Xiao... Yi Xiao is a disciple of the Kunlun Prefecture's Yi family, whose influence is definitely stronger than Philo-Marquis Manor's. But Yi Xiao grew up in Divine Firmament Chapter and according to her, she was abandoned by her father at a young age. Moreover, Kunlun Prefecture's Yi family is an extraordinary existence. It doesn't involve itself with matters of government. Yi Xiao would find it difficult to help me with the imperial government."

    Qin Yun picked up the three letters. "My hopes of overturning the situation will partially rely on these three letters. The rest will be dependent on my flying sword!"

    He did not have the luxury of time and had to make full use of every second.

    After he was done preparing the sealing of the letters, he saw Hong Lingtong almost done with the array setup. Qin Yun walked out.

    "Brother Hong," Qin Yun said. "I have another matter to trouble you."

    "Oh, please tell me." Hong Lingtong said immediately.

    "I have three letters that I need you to send out for me. Send them out in the fastest possible manner," said Qin Yun.

    Hong Lingtong replied immediately, "Rest assured. Leave them to me."

    Qin Yun handed the letters to him.

    Commoners would typically have their letters delivered through merchant groups that happened to be in passing. Previously, Qin Yun would send letters through the official couriers by spending some silver. The official couriers had trained birds meant for the delivery of letters. They were extremely fast! But now, Qin Yun surmised that although he could use a Hypnotizing Spell on mortals, forcing the soldiers within the courier posts to help send his letters, Gongye might have already begun controlling the inflow and outflow of letters.

    As for large family clans like the Hong family, they trained their own bird couriers.

    "Brother Qin Yun," Hong Lingtong said the moment he saw the names and address on the letters. "These three letters go to all over the world, and most of them are in other prefectures! It's rather far away from here. It will probably take some time to deliver these letters."

    "Just try to do it as fast as possible," said Qin Yun.

    Hong Lingtong nodded. "Alright, I'll arrange for the delivery now."

    "Thanks," Qin Yun said immediately. He made it a point to remember the help others rendered him. He would return the favor if he had a chance in the future.

    With a smile, Hong Lingtong turned and left.

    ...

    Qin Yun stood in his spot and waved his hand. A stream of light flew out and instantly charged into the sky. It was his Intrinsic Flying Sword.

    The three-inch-long silver flying sword reached an altitude of a thousand feet. It cruised silently at a blazing speed! It was high in the air and very small. No one noticed that a flying sword had streaked across the sky.

    Soon.

    When the silver flying sword reached Six Fans Gate, it swooped down and in a flash, entered a gap between roof tiles. Even if someone was on the roof, they would not have been able to see the flying sword.

    Through the flying sword that was hiding between two tiles, Qin Yun could easily use the Intrinsic Flying Sword as the center to see everything within a thousand foot radius!

    He also saw his brother, Qin An, inside a particular cell in the dungeon.

    "Oh?" Standing inside the elegant manor's inner wing, Qin Yun frowned slightly. "Only Brother is being imprisoned in Six Fans Gate's dungeon. Where's Father?"

    "Brother." Qin Yun said with a voice transmission.

    He was able to control the Heaven and Earth powers within a five-kilometer radius. Now, all he needed was to control the Heaven and Earth powers that were beside his brother inside the cell and send his voice into his brother's ears.

    In the dungeon cell.

    Qin An was sitting there in a daze. He did not know what fate awaited him.

    "Brother." A voice sounded in Qin An's ears.

    Qin An was stunned. Was it his brother's voice?

    "Brother, I'm now using the Heaven and Earth powers to transmit my voice. Don't be shocked and don't bring attention." Qin Yun continued with his voice transmission. "All you need to do is nod or shake your head."

    Qin An glanced at the guards in the distance and nodded gently.

    "Where's father? He isn't in the Six Fans Gate's dungeons. Where is he?" Qin Yun continued asking with a voice transmission. "Do you know?"

    Qin An nodded slightly.

    Qin Yun quickly made guesses and asked with a voice transmission, "Is Father in County Governor Manor?"

    One of the most secured places in all of Grand Dominance City was the Six Fans Gate's dungeon. It was specially meant to remand prisoners. The other place was County Governor Manor! After all, that was where the county governor worked and lived in. The security was tighter but it typically did not remand prisoners. The tight security was only meant to protect the county governor in order to prevent demons from assassinating him.

    Qin An nodded slightly again.

    Qin Yun was enlightened. "Indeed, he has been sent to County Governor Manor."

    "Brother, wait a while. I'll be saving you soon." Qin Yun said with a voice transmission.

    Qin An's eyes lit up.

    ...

    Qin Yun controlled his flying sword to County Governor Manor. The security was tighter there, preventing Qin Yun's flying sword from approaching too close! It could only circle around County Governor Manor and use the flying sword's thousand-foot-radius perceptive range to probe most of County Governor Manor's surroundings.

    "I can only confirm two types of array formations in County Governor Manor. There are others I can't identify." Qin Yun thought to himself. "County Governor Manor is an extremely dangerous place. To save Father with my strength alone, I'll need to think of other solutions."

    "I should first save brother quickly."

    "County Governor Gongye, you separated my father and brother in different dungeons! By leaving my brother in Six Fans Gate, it's very likely a trap." Qin Yun thought to himself. "However, what means can he produce at Six Fans Gate? A direct offense is useless against me. Furthermore, I had dealt with the soldiers only with Heaven Man Unity techniques previously. I did not even use the might of my sword intent."

    Qin Yun immediately got up and left the study. When he went out, he placed his black flying sword on the desk. He replaced the scabbard by his waist with an ordinary mortal weapon.

    Through the black flying sword, he could sense a region of two hundred feet!

    By placing the black flying sword here, he could be aware of everything that happened in the inner wing within a five-kilometer radius. After all, the inner wing only took up three hundred square meters. If anyone were to dare trespass into the inner wing, he could remotely control the black flying sword and slay the enemy!

    ...

    Inside a yard in the inner wing, Changlan was standing outside.

    "Mother, wait at home for me. I'll be out," said Qin Yun.

    "You are leaving so soon?" Changlan was somewhat worried. "You have to be careful."

    "Don't worry. No one in Grand Dominance City can stop me." Qin Yun said with a smile.

    He had to take action quickly.

    By being fast, he would not give time for the enemy to prepare.

    Now... he would save his brother first!
