and bowed deeply to Sikong Hanzhao. “Lord Sikong, thank you—”

“Unnecessary!” Sikong Hanzhao cut him off with a raised hand and a cold voice. “We are simply fulfilling our duty.. It is the mission Emperor Yun has bestowed upon us.”

He proceeded to sweep his gaze across every man and woman before uttering, “You may war against whoever to the death, and the enforcers will not interfere with your business. We will ask you not to bother us with such nonsense either.”

“But if it involves Emperor Yun’s decrees… may the downfall of these villains be all the example you need!”

Sikong Hanzhao’s domineering att.i.tude and heartless words should’ve invoked shock and terror, but the purple-robed old man actually let out a long sigh of relief instead. He bowed even deeper and said, “Emperor Yun’s saving of the world will never be forgotten. His unifying of the four divine regions is good fortune upon all of the Primal Chaos.”

“From here on out, the Purple Profound Clan will obey Emperor Yun’s decrees as if they came from heaven itself. If the enforcers ever has need of our service, we too will—”

“Unnecessary!”

Sikong Hanzhao clasped his hands behind his back before taking off into the sky. He was gone in but the blink of an eye.

The enforcers’ work had been forceful, domineering, clean and efficient to the max.

It would be a long time before anyone would forget about them, if ever.

For a long time, the purple-robed old man stared at the horizon where the enforcers had vanished. Then, he spun around to face his people and shouted animatedly, “Did you see that? Did you see that!? Who dares say that the enforcers will prioritize their own after today? Who dares say that Emperor Yun will take the dark profound pract.i.tioners’ side!?”

A small group of people bowed their heads in shame.

“Yes… this junior was foolish and narrow-minded.”

“From now on, I will rebuke anyone who dares to challenge Emperor Yun and the enforcers’ fairness with all my heart.”

“Emperor Yun truly is the unparalleled emperor of the four divine regions! He truly is a man who is deserving of the wors.h.i.+p of the entire Primal Chaos!”

………...

“These enforcers are so cool!”

Yun Wuxin exclaimed in admiration. She and Yun Che had arrived just in time to watch the whole thing from beginning to end. Suddenly, she changed her tune and said, “I can’t believe the nerve of those dark profound pract.i.tioners though! It is thanks to father that they got to enjoy everything they got to enjoy today! How dare they tarnish father’s reputation so!?”

Yun Che withdrew his spiritual perception from the distance before replying with a meaningful expression, “The enforcers have probably entered this star region just recently. In order to remove the denizens’ natural caution and rejection in the shortest amount of time possible, it is necessary to ‘kill the chicken to warn the monkeys’.” [1]

“Kill the chicken to… warn the monkeys?” Yun Wuxin turned to him in astonishment.

Yun Che continued to smile. “Correct. However, the monkeys are real, but the chicken is fake. Do you get what I’m saying?”

It took Yun Wuxin only a moment to realize his meaning. She looked in the direction the enforcers had disappeared to and exclaimed in shock, “You mean… those dark profound pract.i.tioners were… pretending the entire time?”

“That’s right.” While taking joy in the fact that his daughter was intelligent, Yun Che continued to explain, “Currently, we are pus.h.i.+ng for both the dark profound pract.i.tioners and the profound pract.i.tioners of three divine regions to put the past behind them and treat each other as equals. To do this, the enforcers must choose between punis.h.i.+ng a profound pract.i.tioner of the three divine regions in defense of a dark profound pract.i.tioner, or the other way around. You understand why the latter is far more effective even though fairness is ensured for both cases."
