Chapter 1166: Unrelenting Aggressiveness
Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon
The Myriad Immortal Palace was one of the territories of the Myriad Immortal Pavilion. For Qin Wufeng to bet his arms at such a sensitive time, and lose, made people suspicious. It was very likely that Si Yusheng had gotten others to lay a trap for Qin Wufeng as a way to seek revenge on Yi Yun for cleaving off Zuoqiu Haoyu's arms.
Although Qin Wufeng was a good-for-nothing, how would City Lord Qin react when his son's arms were chopped off?
Everyone's gaze landed on City Lord Qin's face.
"This Young Master Si is indeed overbearing. To think he even dares do such a thing." Fairy Purple Rain covered her tiny mouth and said softly.
At that moment, City Lord Qin had held both his hands on the armrest and stared intently at Si Yusheng. He asked in a deep tone,"Si Yusheng, are you threatening me?"
His deep, bass-like voice sounded like a bell's gong. A terrifying aura suddenly shot out from the city lord, as an oppressive killing intent locked onto Si Yusheng. At that moment, ripples spread on the lake's surface as black clouds rolled over in an overbearing manner like a storm was imminent.
What a powerful aura!
Yi Yun reeled inside. He had only ever sensed similar auras from people like Felicitous Rain Lord, Demonic Eye Divine Lord, and other powerful figures.
However, City Lord Qin's cultivation realm was definitely slightly weaker than Felicitous Rain Lord’s.
Perhaps, City Lord Qin was just short of fully entering the Divine Lord realm. Or perhaps he was at the cultivation level of a Divine Lord, but had yet to fully fuse with a Divine Lord Royal Seal.
Back in the God Advent Tower left behind by Azure Yang Lord, Yi Yun learned of the existence of the Divine Lord Royal Seal for the first time. There were only 72 Divine Lord Royal Seals in each Empyrean Heaven. They were divine items given birth from heaven-earth laws. Whether a Divine Lord fused with a Divine Lord Royal Seal or not resulted in a huge difference in strength.
As an overlord of an area and ruler of Myriad City, City Lord Qin was making Si Yusheng experience the angry flames of a Divine Lord!
Against City Lord Qin's power, Si Yusheng's face paled slightly as he took a step back.
"I'm only delivering Young Master Wufeng’s message, how is that a threat? However, since City Lord Qin has already said to concede defeat and abide by the rules of the bet, I can only pass these words back to Young Master Wufeng unadulterated." Si Yusheng forcefully suppressed his chaotic lifeblood and spoke.
Si Yusheng had Qin Wufeng in the Myriad Immortal Palace, and had the full might of the Myriad Immortal Pavilion backing him. Although Qin Zhengyang was extremely powerful, Si Yusheng was not afraid that the city lord would attack him.
He was not Zuoqiu Haoyu, but the successor of the Myriad Immortal Pavilion!
City Lord Qin's expression turned sullen. There was a saying that a tiger father would not beget a canine son, but Qin Zhengyang was the antithesis of that saying. Not a single one of his sons was promising.
He had a total of six sons. Two of them perished before he made a name for himself. Each of the remaining four was worse than the preceding one. He had repeatedly disciplined his youngest son, Qin Wufeng, but Qin Wufeng was not a martial arts genius. He wallowed in degeneration and was a frequent customer at dens of iniquity like the Heavenly Treasures Arch and Myriad Immortal Palace. Now that he had fallen into a trap and was being used to keep his father in check, how could Qin Zhengyang not be angered?
However, as Myriad City's city lord, he had to be impartial and treat everyone equally.
"Si Yusheng, regardless of whose son he is, he must abide by the rules of Myriad City. If he gambles with others, he has to concede defeat and abide by the rules of the bet. He needs to shoulder the responsibility for his own actions." Each and every one of City Lord Qin's words resounded throughout the mirror-like lake!
One would be out of their mind to think that his son could be used to make him compromise his own conscience!
Yi Yun was visibly moved. City Lord Qin was indeed a bold and candid gentleman that had a strong sense of chivalry.
However, he also knew that he was the root cause of today's conflict. Even if Qin Wufeng was foppish, he would not have succumbed to the insidious scheme if not for him.
Although City Lord Qin was a man of great principles, he could not sit idly by as Qin Wufeng's arms were cleaved off.
"Thank you, City Lord Qin. But this matter is my responsibility. There's no need for you to stand up for a junior like me." As he said that, Yi Yun turned to Si Yusheng and said,"This matter has nothing to do with City Lord Qin. You schemed against Young Master Wufeng only because you were gunning for me. Use whatever means you have!"
"Hahahaha!" Si Yusheng laughed boisterously."To think you refuse a toast only to drink a forfeit. When have I, Si Yusheng, ever suffered a loss? I respected your talent and spoke pleasantly to you before, but you tried to take a mile when I gave you an inch. Now you want to sign the contract from before? Too late!"
Si Yusheng laughed sinisterly as he took out a contract from his interspatial ring again. He threw it straight at Yi Yun.
He came prepared. He went through the necessary pleasantries. If Yi Yun did not know what was best for him, he would repress Yi Yun. He also stood on the side of reason, so no one could fault him.
Everyone looked at the contract that was thrown at Yi Yun with mixed expressions.
Yi Yun did not catch the contract. He gently waved his hand as the contract stopped and hovered in front of him.
After scanning the contents of the contract, Yi Yun laughed."Six hundred years has changed to six thousand years. Furthermore, cultivation resources are not provided for free. And I need to hand over pills, cultivation techniques, and other riches in exchange for Myriad Immortal Pavilion's Contribution Points? Only then can I exchange for the Myriad Immortal Pavilion's cultivation resources?"
"Those are truly great terms!"
When Yi Yun said this, everyone was flabbergasted. They finally understand that Si Yusheng had planned on using this contract from the beginning. As for the first contract, it was a ruse to keep up appearances.
The second contract was terribly restricting for Yi Yun!
A young alchemist that could refine an enhanced version of Supreme Palace Iceheart Pills would develop into something impressive. It would not even be farfetched for him to become a generation's alchemist sage!
Such a person would naturally be coveted by the Myriad Immortal Pavilion. It could even be that the Zuoqiu Haoyu matter was only an excuse for them to make their move.
There was a story about an alchemist in ancient times that had outstanding alchemical skills. However, his strength was limited and he ended up being imprisoned and forced to refine pills!
Perhaps the Myriad Immortal Pavilion had such intentions for Yi Yun.
The contract mentioned six thousand years, but only the heavens knew how they would treat Yi Yun when he went to Myriad Immortal Pavilion.
Everyone cast their gaze on Yi Yun as they awaited his reaction.
And at that moment, Yi Yun's face continued to have a light smile hanging on it. He looked at the flickering Dao patterns in the contract in front of him and gradually lifted his finger and did a simple stroke across the contract.
Pure Yang sword beams flashed as the entire contract instantly turned into scraps of paper by the sword beams. Following that, it was consumed by pure Yang flames and turned to ash!
"Contribute to you to obtain Contribution Points to exchange for resources? How can I, Yi Yun, think anything of the items you have at the Myriad Immortal Pavilion? What a joke!"
As he saw the gray ash scatter to the ground, Si Yusheng's face twisted with killing intent."It looks like you truly wish death upon yourself. Fine! I'll fulfill your wishes!"
Si Yusheng's aura blasted out as he roared angrily and pulled out the sword behind him.
"You are only a mere alchemist but you dare act so arrogantly. Today, I’ll be taking that pair of arms off you!"
Alchemists without arms were crippled.
The Myriad Immortal Pavilion would not allow any enemy that posed a threat to them to mature. Yi Yun had a promising future and a grudge with the Myriad Immortal Pavilion. He refused to pledge allegiance, so he needed to be killed!
