Chapter 221 Tyranny
[TL: Hey folks, this chapter marks the beginning of the Third Volume of the series!]
Jun Wu Yis mouth gaped wide-open, and he couldnt help recoiling under shock for a second.
This kid is insane..
At this precise moment, someone came in and reported: Third Master, Mu Xue Tong has accompanied an elderly gentleman who claims to be the Sixth Elder of the Silver Blizzard City. He wished to seek a meeting with you Third Master, shall we send them in?
After his previous visit, Jun Wu Yi had told the Jun Familys servants that Mu Xue Tong was like a brother to him, and that the Jun Familys servants mustnt neglect him or deny him entry unless hes being accompanied by someone potentially hostile.
Jun Wu Yi and his nephew both immediately prepared themselves to welcome Mu Xue Tong at first, but when they heard that he was being accompanied by the Sixth Elder of the Silver Blizzard City, their faces immediately and simultaneously started to reflect a plethora of possibilities that had started to emerge in their minds.
While Jun Wu Yis facial muscles were twitching in thought, Jun Mo Xies expression seemed a bit doubtful.
Isnt this a bit too soon? It seems that they are a bit too efficient, arent they?
Third Uncle, the Sixth Elder is a Spirit Xuan expert, and we wont be able to hide the recovery of your injury from him. Jun Mo Xie immediately thought of this: However, since its something we wish to avoid, do you want me to try and do something about it?
I dont have anything to hide! Anyway, theyll find out about this sooner or later. Jun Wu Yi shook his head: The impact of my recovery may not be completely negative since my beloved Yao is still waiting to hear about me. If Mu Xue Tong was to go back and inform her of my recovery, then just imagine the amount of happiness it will bring to her after all these years of bitter hardships shes suffered.
Jun Wu Yis face reveled in a shade of gentleness, while his distant eyes seemed to be affectionately gazing at an imaginary woman who was silently staring at him from a distance.
Jun Mo Xie sighed, but didnt say anything. Even though Jun Mo Xie was very perspective in nature, but he could also understand the longing of his Uncles heart, and the bitter taste of the mans reality, and so he didnt object even though he didnt approve of it.
Ask them to come here. Jun Wu Yi controlled the tone of his voice, making his words sound reluctant.
Jun Wu Yi pushed his wheelchair forward, and proceeded to meeting them in the courtyard.
Ha ha, we meet again Wu Yi; your complexion and strength seem a lot better than last times. Mu Xue Tong smiled warmly as he made a strange signal with his eyes, seemingly trying to indicate a warning which only Jun Wu Yi could understand.
Jun Wu Yi hardened his heart as he cupped his hands in greeting, and then said: The Sixth Elder has arrived in person, how could this fortunate Wu Yi be of help?
The Sixth Elders floating gaze sized up Jun Wu Yi from top to bottom before he spoke up: Are you Jun Wu Yi? His majestic voice seemed to be devoid of anger.
Yes, I am! Jun Wu Yi replied in a neither servile nor overbearing tone with the touch of a smile on his face.
Good, good, youre not even forty yet, and your strength has already reached the Sky Xuan realm! Such progress is very rare from this worlds standards given the youth of your years! A cold light flashed in the Sixth Elders eyes: I heard that you had injured yourself in the past, but it seems that youve been recovering very quickly, isnt it?
The condition of Jun Wu Yis injuries really couldnt have been hidden from a Spirit Xuan experts piercing eyes! Jun Mo Xies guess had been absolutely correct.
Mu Xue Tong was genuinely startled, and looked at Jun Wu Yi with a surprised expression on his face, waiting to hear his reply.
Oh, Wu Yi was able to get rid of that toxicity with your blessings Elder, but my two legs still need a lot of conditioning before Ill be able to walk again. Jun Wu Yis smiled faintly as a cold light flashed in his eyes: This strange injury took away ten years of my life! Ill never be able to forget the bitterness Ive tasted in these last ten years.
Oh, the heavens help the worthy, and the god protects his beloved. The Sixth Elder smiled profoundly: This is indeed a news worthy of celebration.
Thank you! Jun Wu Yi replied and then asked: Shall we proceed for some tea?
Jun Mo Xie silently pushed his wheelchair behind him.
Isnt this your eldest brother, Jun Wu Huis only son? The Sixth Elder looked at Jun Mo Xie with an indescribable expression in his eyes.
Yes! Jun Wu Yi replied as the hint of a deep-seated pain flashed through his eyes: He is my Brothers only son lucky-enough to survive till today, and the only descendant of the Jun Familys bloodline.
The Sixth Elder wasnt able to understand the meaning behind the only son lucky enough to survive; but even though Jun Wu Yi stated his nephews fortune in a plain and dull manner, the Sixth Elder could clearly sense the implied meaning of their Familys extreme misfortunes!
Ha ha, the sole heirs to a bloodline are often very seriously pampered ha ha! the Sixth Elder laughed in a gentle and kind manner: I see that he carries a very well-cultured demeanor; the Jun Family must indeed be very proud of him ah.
Elder, may I please be given the liberty of asking the Sixth Elders name? Jun Mo Xie had heard stories about this man, and hence wanted to know his real name.
The Six Elders eyes ducked for a moment, but then smiled and replied back calmly: This Old Mans Family name is Xiao. Xiao Han is my nephew.
Ah. Jun Mo Xie smiled courteously as he quickly concealed that murderous aura which had flashed through his eyes for a moment, and somehow managed to prevent anyone from seeing it: I really envy Elder Xiaos Spirit Xuan strength for you are strong enough to be counted amongst the most powerful men in this world, and ah, its a real blessing for my Family that a man of your strength is visiting us today.
The Sixth Elder smiled warmly: He speaks very decently even at such a young age.
The four men smiled as they walked inside.
Mu Xue Tong was walking on the side, and couldnt help wondering that the Sixth Elder had been working so closely with the Third and Ninth Elder ever since he had joined the Silver Blizzard City that no one had ever referred to him as a Xiao Elder in a long time, and as a result, over the years people had almost forgotten that he hailed from the Xiao Family.
Even though both the sides were talking in a very dignified and harmonious manner, it was evident that something was fishy. Moreover, even though the two parties were constantly exchanging very pleasant words with beaming smiles on their faces, the atmosphere was becoming increasingly depressing.
A thought suddenly arose in Mu Xue Tongs mind, and left him rather surprised: Could it really be possible that the Sixth Elder didnt participate in all those activities at that time? If so, then the Sixth Elders visit to the Jun Family today could mark the beginning of a new era of devastation for the Jun Family!
Jun Wu Yis courtyard, study hall, and living room were all connected, but since Jun Wu Yi had no intention of disturbing the Solitary Falcon, who was engrossed in his practice inside his study hall, he asked his servants to make seating arrangements under a tree in his courtyard.
This tea is excellent! the Sixth Elder inhaled the favor, gently sipped at it, and then leaned his body slightly backward as he closed his eyes and relished its aftertaste for a moment before praising its quality. Third Master Jun, I dont know of this, but have you come across our Silver Blizzard Citys Xiao Familys young master lately?
The Xiao Familys young master? Jun Wu Yi puckered his brows as he pondered: Ive never met him; my disease has only seen improvements recently, and I still cant move about freely since Ive forgotten to walk over so many years of my disability, and hence I only have a very little exposure of the world outside the Jun residence, but still I have no idea why the Sixth Elder is asking me this? Whats the Xiao Familys son named? Could you tell me his age and appearance?
Oh? The Third Master Jun hasnt met him? the Sixth Elders body was still leaning backwards, while his eyes were still faintly shut: My Grandnephew accompanied the Little Princess out to the Tian Xiang City today, but was beaten up by a bold bunch of bandits; the conditions of his injuries are quite serious. This Old Man really cant think of any Tian Xiang City-based Family apart from the Jun, which would have the courage to act so audaciously against us.
The Sixth Elder seems to be quite sure, but what evidence is there to support that this was done by the Jun Family? Given the Sixth Elder is one the most experienced men in this world, I presume that the Elder would have some sort of conclusive evidence to support his words! Jun Mo Xie interrupted in between since he felt a bit wronged by the manner in which the Old Man was accusing his family.
Its against the norms for youngsters to rashly interrupt two elders when they are speaking unless you wish to make a mockery out of your Familys name. This Jun boy needs to be taught a lesson for the future! Even though the Sixth Elder snapped back at Jun Mo Xie, his eyes were still half-shut.
The Spirit Xuan expert condensed his Xuan Qi into a muffled sound wave, and directed in straight towards the young master Jun, which drilled straight into his eardrum!
A Spirit Xuans condensed Xuan Qi can never be taken as a joke; even though it was nothing more than a strong vibration for the two Sky Xuans who were sitting in close proximity, it was powerful enough to send Jun Mo Xies world tumbling upside-down.
He felt as if a sharp needle had pierced straight into his eardrum, which then proceeded forward from that point and continued to ruthlessly advance forward until it had shaken his entire soul. If the intensity of this sound wave had been any stronger, then it couldve possibly left Jun Mo Xie to bleed on the spot, and although this injury wouldnt have been fatal, it was sure to leave the young master Jun with a severe tinnitus; a tinnitus severe enough often carries the danger of causing deafness!
Jun Mo Xie cursed within his heart, this Old Man is too violent and merciless!
Even though the young master Jun felt as such, one could always argue that the Sixth Elder couldve injured the young master Jun far more seriously in case he wanted to, and had only settled to serving a deserved punishment for the youngsters breach of conduct!
The young master Jun hadnt been a part of this world for too long, and even though he knew how things worked in theory, he had still never personally experienced the ant-like value a low Xuan Qi martial expert had in the eyes of a Spirit Xuan master.
The Sixth Elder on the other hand hadnt practiced too much restraint at this point since finding about Jun Wu Yis healing injuries had left him a bit unsettled since it meant more trouble for his nephew. In his eyes, such a lowly family didnt deserve to enjoy such a favorable position and treatment!
Since Jun Mo Xie was the sole heir to the Jun Familys bloodline, he figured that harming the youngster would be equivalent of harming the entire Jun Family!
Upon being suddenly hit by this unforeseen attack, Jun Mo Xie had immediately moved the Art of Unlocking the heavens fortune into action, and had silently organized its force into a seven-layered defensive structure against the attack. This ruthless sound wave had penetrated through the initial layers of his defense with ease, but found itself spent by the time it reached the last layer, and was eventually unable to pass through his final line of defense. One has to say that the Art of Unlocking the heavens fortune is a really unique and powerful trump card because even though the difference between the strengths of a Gold Xuan and Spirit Xuan is simply unsurmountable, the young master Jun was somehow able to withstand the attack with its help since the attack didnt carry too much force with it.
Jun Mo Xie was left groaning, while the veins surrounding his nose were visibly bloodshot. The trauma of this injury was partial real, and partly fabricated by Jun Mo Xies presence of mind since he knew that if the Sixth Elder realized that he was able to withstand this attack. then the next one would be impossible to deflect.
