Chapter 1176: Whereabouts of Demonic Servants
Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon
Yi Yun's aura became richer the longer he fought. He began to realize that he had far underestimated the Azure Wood Divine Tree's strength. With it, he was practically invincible here. Especially as demonic servants lacked physical bodies, the Azure Wood Divine Tree was like a tiger in a flock of sheep. There was no way to stop it.
"Peng Peng Peng!"
Large swaths of demonic servants were slain by Yi Yun. At the same time, Yi Yun used his spatial dimension laws to distort space and imprison other large groups of demonic servants.
However, a few had slipped away from Yi Yun's restraints and begun fleeing out of the ruin.
Yi Yun frowned. He knew that although the demonic servants were extremely weak and easily crushed by the Azure Wood Divine Tree, they were very difficult to deal with once they were out of the ruin!
Few people could even see the demonic servants without the Purple Crystal's energy vision. And even if they could see them, they would still have a hard time dealing with them because they could possess the bodies of others.
The spiritual bodies by themselves were not very strong, but if they were to possess a warrior, their strength would increase a hundredfold!
No matter how strong Yi Yun was, he could not hold back an army of demonic servants that numbered in the thousands. By the time the spatial cage closed completely, more than half of the demonic servants had gotten out of the ruin.
At that moment, outside the ruin, the guards from Jadewave Sect were manning their posts. Due to the Yuan Qi fluctuation from before, they were still very tense.
"This place is just too odd. Staying here just makes me feel uncomfortable."
"Unfortunately, both you and I have to guard this place. If someone really were to trespass, they would probably die from fright.
The guards looked in the direction of the ruins as they felt a chill run down their backs.
Suddenly, they felt a strong gust of cold wind blow at them. It left their bones shaking.
"What's the matter?"
One of the guards had been blown into the air by the cold squall and slammed into a wall.
At that moment, he felt as though all life had been sucked out of him. It was like he was immediately about to die.
And at that instant, a resplendent glow burst out from the ruin's seal as it blasted apart. Out stepped a youth that was covered in blue light. His face was a mystery, and when he raised his hand, a green sword beam appeared.
The sword beam flashed across the guard's cheek, as though it was piercing through something. Immediately following that, the guard heard what seemed like a heart-wrenching cry. The voice seemed evanescent as though it had been issued from the abyss of hell. It left him shuddering in fear.
The guard slammed heavily to the ground. He realized his back was completely soaked in cold sweat. Although he did not know what just happened, he was certain that he had a brush with death.
He had been saved by that green sword beam, but who was the youth? Why was he walking out of the restraints that sealed the ancient ruin?
His eyes widened as he stared at the youth, trying his best to make out his facial features. However, there seemed to be dense Dao patterns covering him that blocked his face. The more the guard tried, the more he couldn't make out anything.
"Inform your sect master to evacuate the entire Jadewave Sect or a catastrophe will befall the sect."
The youth's voice rang in the guard's ear. It caught the guard by surprise. The entire Jadewave Sect had to evacuate or catastrophe would befall it? Although he knew that the mysterious youth was formidable, would the sect master believe this stranger’s words?
Just as he was about to inquire further, the youth transformed into a blue stream of light. In a blink of an eye, he had traversed the hundred thousand-foot-valley and vanished.
"What…what do I do?"
Aside from the guard that had been sent flying, the other guards were feeling cold and clammy. They had a small suspicion that the cold wind could have been the escape of the cursed things from inside the ruin. As for the mysterious youth, who was he?
Regardless, the sect master had to be informed of this matter!
Ever since Dong Xiaowan had left with Yi Yun, Jadewave Sect's sect master Dong Shaoqing had not left the Jadewave Sect's premises. Although he trusted Yi Yun, he still missed his daughter.
These days, he had been fretting over the bounty on Yi Yun’s head. He was extremely worried for Yi Yun since the Myriad Immortal Pavilion was willing to pay a huge price to have him hunted down. The news had spread throughout the Myriad Divine Territory and even to several of the surrounding divine territories. Even four Supremacies from Myriad Immortal Pavilion had been called in.
However, it was as if Yi Yun had vanished into thin air.
Dong Shaoqing's only option was to wait.
Unfortunately, before he managed to receive any news of Yi Yun, he received a report from his subordinates that something had happened in the ancient ruin in the World Stone mine.
A mysterious youth covered in blue light? Awakened evil spirits?
"What did that youth look like!?" Dong Shaoqing eagerly asked.
"I couldn't tell." The guards shook their heads. "There was light and laws blocking him. We couldn't see a thing."
"Is that so…?" Many thoughts instantly flashed through Dong Shaoqing's mind. A youth with immense strength just happened to appear by the ancient ruin. The first person Dong Shaoqing thought of was Yi Yun.
Was it possible that Yi Yun learned the location of the ancient ruin from his daughter and went to investigate?
Upon realizing that, Dong Shaoqing took a deep breath. Yi Yun was truly talented and daring. Such a strange, cursed land with no rewards was somewhere people would avoid in fear, yet he took the initiative to investigate it?
Regardless if it was Yi Yun or not, Dong Shaoqing decided to keep the matter an absolute secret. If the Myriad Immortal Pavilion were to know of it, it would be troublesome.
"Listen up. News of today's incident, especially anything to do with that mysterious youth, must be a sworn secret. Any who tell will be dealt with according to the sect's rules—by death! Immediately make a soul contract!"
"Also, immediately inform everyone in Jadewave Sect that we are leaving this area."
Are we really moving?
The guards were dumbstruck. They thought that the sect master would not believe the mysterious warning. After all, the Jadewave Sect had been entrenched in these lands for too long. These were their roots, so how could they move so easily?
Yet, Dong Shaoqing made this heavy decision within a few seconds. The spirit the sect master had was indeed massive.
At the moment Dong Shaoqing made his decision, thousands of miles away from Jadewave Sect, Yi Yun was still pursuing the demonic servants with the pure Yang broken sword in hand!
While these demonic servants fled from Yi Yun, they constantly spread out. However, the core batch remained clustered together. They were extremely fast, so fast that Yi Yun failed to close the gap.
However, the longer he pursued them, the more Yi Yun's eyebrows furrowed. He would soon need to give up on his pursuit. Not because he could not deal with the demonic servants, but because they were heading for Myriad City!
Myriad City had a ban on flying, but that did not matter to the demonic servants. Even Supremacies would not detect them. However, if Yi Yun were to just fly in, he would definitely be stopped.
Moreover, Myriad City was home to the Myriad Immortal Pavilion. Yi Yun had greatly offended the Myriad Immortal Pavilion, so entering Myriad City would be walking into a trap.
Upon thinking of this, Yi Yun gradually slowed down. He gave up on pursuing the demonic servants for he had no choice.
It was only a matter of time before the demonic servants eventually escaped. He had forced them to escape in a rush and had greatly reduced their numbers. That was all he could do. As for the rest, it would depend on Myriad City. He could not continue to be involved in the matter.
