The five universe origin marks of the Heartless Divine Sword had actually lost to the level-three universe origin marks of Heavenly Venerate Nongyue’s sword technique. Although Luo Yunyang had already been prepared when he’d made his move, he still felt somewhat uncomfortable.
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue, who had already put away her sword, stood there calmly and gracefully.
“You have already exceeded my expectations by being able to strike back. Although that sword technique of the Heart Sword Heavenly Venerate includes five universe origin marks, its usage of the universe origin marks is too harsh,” Yuan Venerate Wanliu said with a hint of a chuckle.
Luo Yunyang knew that getting the tutelage of an Almighty was a rare, unrivaled honor. Thus, he said sincerely, “Please guide me, Master.”
“Although the Heart Sword Heavenly Venerate’s idea and cultivation weren’t bad, his scope had already decided his boundaries.”
“His sword technique simply makes use of a few origin marks. There is no integration. It’s just like having the same amount of quantities to form something!”
“However, because the arrangement isn’t right, it has ended up being sturdy on one end yet flimsy in another aspect.”
Luo Yunyang understood Yuan Venerate Wanliu’s explanation. When he had been in the Da Alliance, Luo Yunyang had already learned this sort of rationale.
However, at the time, he had been a small fry. Now, he could utilize universe origin marks.
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue stood elegantly aside. Although she seemed to be standing rather close to Luo Yunyang, she wasn’t able to hear a single word of what Yuan Venerate Wanliu said.
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue knew that she couldn’t insist either!
Although the Heavenly Venerate, who seemed rather composed, didn’t seem to mind, she was actually shooting furtive glances at Luo Yunyang.
After all, the Heavenly Venerate knew that a marriage alliance between her and Luo Yunyang would bind Luo Yunyang completely to the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
Although she instinctively felt a little opposed to such a marriage, she couldn’t decline given the Rising Sky Feather’s situation.
Right now, as she saw Luo Yunyang sitting quietly on the ground in deep thought and smiling from time to time like a little kid, Heavenly Venerate Nongyue smiled faintly.
It was a peaceful smile that even she didn’t fully understand. However, this smile had still appeared on her face.
After who knew how long, Yuan Venerate Wanliu’s voice was heard in Heavenly Venerate Nongyue’s mind again. This time, Heavenly Venerate Nongyue knew that Yuan Venerate Wanliu had finished teaching Luo Yunyang.
Although she didn’t know how much Luo Yunyang had gained, the Heavenly Venerate knew for certain that Luo Yunyang had definitely gained something based on his expression.
“You wouldn’t be able to use the Sky Feather Sword even if it was given to you now. The Minor Feather Sword includes a total of nine levels of universe origin marks. This was my sword back then. Use it for the time being!” A long sword fell into Luo Yunyang’s hands as Yuan Venerate Wanliu’s voice was heard.
The Minor Feather Sword was three meters long and looked like a coarse steel pole. Not only did it not have an edge, but it also didn’t have a point.
However, when this long sword appeared in Luo Yunyang’s hands, he felt the universe origin marks of the sword. What made Luo Yunyang happier was that the Minor Feather Sword that looked like a still pole was actually made from 120,960 small swords fused together.
This was an ultimate treasure most suitable for using the Sky Feather 13 Swords.
“Back then, I relied on this Minor Feather Sword to bring the Rising Sky Feather Sect to prominence. I hope you do not let me down.” Yuan Venerate Wanliu then added, “This sword has many wondrous uses that require comprehension. Remember, don’t be bound to just my bound cultivation path.”
After Luo Yunyang expressed his gratitude to his master, Yuan Venerate Wanliu said softly, “I’m tired. Let Nongyue show you around the Rising Sky Feather Sect. Remember, you absolutely mustn’t use the thing I gave you unless your life is in danger. Master hopes that you won’t even use it once.”
Luo Yunyang appeared slightly moved by these instructions. He nodded his head and followed Heavenly Venerate Nongyue towards the massive sword-like mountains of the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
Heavenly Venerate Nongyue’s reputation was rather great in the Rising Sky Feather Sect. Practically everyone who saw her would greet her respectfully.
Luo Yunyang could see the adoration that some disciples felt for Heavenly Venerate Nongyue.
If there was one word to describe Heavenly Venerate Nongyue’s status in the Rising Sky Feather, that word would be ‘goddess’.
“Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble is currently in seclusion. Do you want to seek an audience?” Heavenly Venerate Nongyue led Luo Yunyang towards a huge plaza.
Luo Yunyang thought about it for a bit before answering, “Since the Great Heavenly Venerate is training in seclusion, let’s not disturb him. It just so happens that I also wish to cultivate in seclusion for some time. Please help me arrange a place.”
“Alright!” Heavenly Venerate Nongyue paused for a moment and then pointed at a mountain peak to the left. “That is the Extending Sky Peak. It is a quiet place within the Rising Sky Feather Sect. Why don’t you seclude yourself there?”
As she waved her hands, a cave appeared on the Extending Sky Peak.
Luo Yunyang didn’t decline, as he saw that the condition of the Extending Sky Peak wasn’t too bad. He took to the skies and entered the cave abode quickly.
The environment of the cave abode wasn’t much of a problem for Luo Yunyang. Except for a sacred ground of primordial chaos, most places wouldn’t make any difference for Luo Yunyang.
As he sat in a lotus position, Luo Yunyang rapidly replayed the conversation he’d had with Yuan Venerate Wanliu in his mind. Every single sentence of this conversation seemed to linger in him.
What made Luo Yunyang ponder the most was the Sky Feather 13 Swords!
Luo Yunyang believed that, right now, he could utilize the first three of the Sky Feather 13 Swords at best.
Just as Yuan Venerate Wanliu had said while imparting the 13 swords, when using the same amount of universe origin marks, the technique unleashed by some people might be like tofu, while others might unleash a technique as sturdy as steel.
When it came to harmonizing these universe origin marks, the most important factor was mind power!
Utilizing the universe origin marks required power, whereas integrating universe origin seals required mind power. Although Yuan Venerate Wanliu hadn’t explained this clearly, Luo Yunyang knew that mind power was even more important as mastery reached a later stage.
However, Luo Yunyang didn’t immediately comprehend the Sky Feather 13 Slots. Instead, he focused on the bracelet on his left hand.
The tri-colored bracelet looked ordinary, yet it was the most important life-preserving item given to Luo Yunyang by Yuan Venerate Wanliu.
Every color of the tri-colored bracelet represented a chance of life preservation, and each colored halo represented a full-force Almighty attack.
This item could be considered beyond precious.
Luo Yunyang could sense the overwhelming power contained within the tri-colored bracelet. However, it was a pity that he couldn’t use his attribute regulator to convert this power.
Luo Yunyang made some hand seals and turned the tri-colored bracelet into a protective wrist guard before he picked up the Minor Feather Sword.
Compared to the Eternal Divine Pestle, the Minor Feather Sword was much less abstruse. However, Luo Yunyang could fully utilize the Minor Feather Sword, whereas he could only use a few of the most basic abilities of the Eternal Divine Pestle.
Luo Yunyang placed the Minor Feather Sword across his knees and a dazzling golden manual appeared.
Sky Feather 13 Swords!
This was an image Yuan Venerate Wanliu had entered into Luo Yunyang’s mind by using a great mystic ability. Every single image was extremely precious, and inside this manual were all the variations of the Sky Feather 13 Swords.
As Luo Yunyang flipped through the golden manual in his mind, the first form of the Sky Feather 13 Swords appeared.
A golden silhouette unleashed an extremely ordinary sword-strike. If any Galaxy-Grade or weaker martialist were to see this sword technique, they would just consider it a really ordinary sword technique.
However, thanks to this simple move, Luo Yunyang sensed a universe origin mark in that sword-light. He also sensed that, as the sword-light moved, that universe origin mark split into twelve before finally converging again.
During this split, the move that had originally been one universe origin mark was layered ninefold and its offensive might increased ninefold as well.
Compared to a level-one Heavenly Venerate technique of the Heartless Divine Sword, the Sky Feather 13 Swords weren’t much more powerful. However, this move consumed way more mind power than the Heartless Divine Sword.
One sword-light split into nine before re-converging into one. A great deal of mind power was expended, as it was required to control this process.
Luo Yunyang opened his eyes after meticulously comprehending this for half a day. He waved the Minor Feather Sword in his hand and dozens of sword-lights shot forth from the Minor Feather Sword. These sword-lights turned into nine streaks before finally converging back into one.
This was called One-Yuan Initialize!
Compared to the One-Yuan Initialize of the golden manual, Luo Yunyang’s move was a little shaky. However, thanks to the Minor Feather Sword, its might was many times stronger than using an ordinary sword.
Three days later, Luo Yunyang, who was thoroughly proficient in One-Yuan Initialize, flipped open the golden manual in his head once again. The sword was split into Yin and Yang and could be displayed clearly.
Second sword, third sword…
Time trickled by. The time Luo Yunyang spent in a lotus position got increasingly longer. One day, after sitting in a lotus position for three days and not using a sword technique like he always did, he got up slowly.
He sighed softly and put away the Minor Feather Sword, not because he didn’t wish to comprehend it further, but because he felt unable to keep up with the mental and physical strain.
Although he already felt very familiar with the fourth sword of the Sky Feather 13 Swords, Luo Yunyang was unable to unleash it, no matter what he tried.
This feeling was very unbearable.
