Chapter 1182: What is Arrogance
Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon
Fourth Elder looked at Yi Yun with a penetrating gaze. As an Elder of the Guiyuan family, he had always enjoyed an overpowering aura. In front of typical juniors, they would feel dominated by his aura. Fairy Purple Rain was no exception. Even though she was an elite of the Guiyuan family, she remained a respectful junior in front of him.
However, Yi Yun had appeared in Myriad City even though he was being hunted by the Myriad Immortal Pavilion. It was as though he had walked into a tiger's den. No one expected a disguised him to, despite such circumstances, to accept the Guiyuan family's public request, openly step into the Guiyuan family, and reveal his identity.
Despite such unfavorable conditions, he still remained composed as though he was not being overshadowed by Fourth Elder's aura. This displeased Fourth Elder. He was, after all, a person of authority and was accustomed to being in control of everything.
"Yi Yun, you do know that with one voice transmission charm, people from the Myriad Immortal Pavilion would rush here in five minutes and capture you. When that happens, there is no need for me to describe your outcome."
Fourth Elder was acutely aware that Yi Yun was not much weaker than he was. Since his aura could not overpower the junior, he went straight to the point. He wanted to sense an inkling of unease from Yi Yun's eyes.
However, he was disappointed as Yi Yun laughed and said,"I naturally know that. However, why would Fourth Elder want to inform the Myriad Immortal Pavilion? Are you tempted by that bit of reward offered by the Myriad Immortal Pavilion?"
Fourth Elder sneered."That is no 'bit of reward'. For you, the Myriad Immortal Pavilion has gone to great lengths. The astronomical rewards offered is something even my Guiyuan family would covet."
Yi Yun shook his head and said,"Fourth Elder, is that all you can amount to? I previously heard from Xiaowan that the Guiyuan family in the past million years has been the second strongest faction in Myriad Divine Territory. And in fact, in terms of strength, the Guiyuan family is not much weaker than the Myriad Immortal Pavilion. However, of the three great medicinal clinics in Myriad City's core district area, the Myriad Immortal Pavilion controls the Medicinal Immortal Pavilion, and the other Heaven Bestowing Medicinal Clinic is jointly run by the Myriad Immortal Pavilion and several other factions. As for the Guiyuan family, it has no medicinal clinics in the core district of Myriad City. All it has is a weapon store."
"After all these years, the Guiyuan family has had unknown amounts of resources robbed by the Myriad Immortal Pavilion. Doesn't Fourth Elder feel any hatred for that? Now that the Myriad Immortal Pavilion is pursuing me, they are only taking out a portion of the resources that they had robbed from the Guiyuan family as a form of reward you claim to be 'astronomical'. Is Fourth Elder so easily tempted by this tiny bit of benefit? From my point of view, these are things the Myriad Immortal Pavilion had snatched from the Guiyuan family and they are just returning it to the Guiyuan family out of charity."
When Yi Yun came to this point, Fourth Elder's eyes flashed. His aura rose."What a glib tongue. It's a great strategy trying to sow discord. It is not a lie that my Guiyuan family has been at odds with the Myriad Immortal Pavilion for millions of years. How can the cost-benefit analysis not be done by the upper echelons of our Guiyuan family? How can it be something a junior like you can frivolously comment on? You are just thinking of instigating a war between my Guiyuan family and the Myriad Immortal Pavilion so as to reap the benefits of the internecine outcome!"
Fourth Elder's words were overbearing and they contained a powerful aura. It left Fairy Purple Rain's stifled. She knew her grandfather's character. He was a person with his own opinions or he would not have risen to the position of Elder. Such a person wouldn't be so easily swayed by others. For some reason, Fairy Purple Rain began to worry for Yi Yun. She felt that if she were in Yi Yun's shoes, she had no way of making a retort.
Yi Yun did not mind Fourth Elder's anger. He casually picked up the tea on the table and took a sip."Fourth Elder is right. I have indeed frivolously commented on the relationship between the two of you. However, you said that I'm trying to reap the benefits of an internecine outcome? To be honest, a tiny place like the Myriad Divine Territory might be the core trading area of the Yang God Empyrean Heaven, but to me, Yi Yun, it's not something I care for. My ambition does not lie here. In a few years, I will leave the Myriad Divine Territory, so why would I try to reap the benefits of an internecine outcome?"
"You…" Fourth Elder's eyes widened. What arrogance!
He had seen many young geniuses in his life. People like Si Yusheng and Si Shaoyu were famous for their arrogance for they thought nothing of others. Si Yusheng even dared to kidnap City Lord Qin's youngest son, what else did he not dare do?
But even an arrogant Si Yusheng's life goal was to inherit the Myriad Immortal Pavilion and lead the Myriad Immortal Pavilion into dominating the Myriad Divine Territory before expanding beyond the area.
Only Yi Yun dared claim that the 'tiny place' like the Myriad Divine Territory was not something he cared for.
In comparison, Si Yusheng's arrogance was nothing.
Fourth Elder wanted to rebuke Yi Yun for his arrogance but he swallowed his words when it reached the tip of his tongue.
On careful thought, what did Yi Yun do in the past…
He had modified and refined Supreme Palace Iceheart Pills that exceeded Zuoqiu Bo's in quality. Despite knowing that Zuoqiu Haoyu was a young master of the Myriad Immortal Pavilion, he had still crippled him of his arms.
Following that, when City Lord Qin's youngest was in Si Yusheng's hands, he had taken the initiative to relieve himself from City Lord Qin's protection. Everyone believed that he would be brought to the Myriad Immortal Pavilion and become a puppet in the future, but he had easily defeated Si Yusheng, who had cultivated for hundreds of years and was deemed to be invincible against anyone below the realm of Supremacy. His status as successor to the Myriad Immortal Pavilion was ignored as his dantian was directly destroyed. He had also directly withstood a strike from a Supremacy, Zuoqiu Bo and did not suffer defeat. He had managed to escape unscathed.
Such a figure would definitely become a Divine Lord in the future if he did not perish. It was certain that he would become an alchemist sage or it was even possible for him to touch the legendary gates that stood above the realm of a Divine Lord.
He truly had the right to say that he thought nothing of the Myriad Divine Territory!
The more carefully he thought, Fourth Elder realized the horror of the youth that was slowly sipping his tea. Now, it would be considered good that his aura was not overpowered by Yi Yun, much less talk about overshadowing him.
"I admit that among all that I had seen— No, I should say that you are the most terrifying genius that I have heard or imagined among all geniuses. However, it is impossible to make my Guiyuan family fall into a trap by instigating the conflict between the Myriad Immortal Pavilion and my Guiyuan family based on what you said!"
"Furthermore, indulging an enemy is only asking for trouble. Even if you think nothing of the Myriad Divine Territory, my Guiyuan family will not be willing to cooperate with someone that can easily control us in the future. To be honest, to such people like you, the first reaction most factions would have is fear. From there, they will think of destroying you."
Fourth Elder was frank. Yi Yun nodded."I like it when people go straight to the point. That's right. I naturally know that many factions will relish in my death. However, how can I be easily destroyed having matured to this point?"
"I, Yi Yun, have faced factions even stronger than the Myriad Immortal Pavilion in the past. I have even faced the relentless pursuits of several Divine Lords alone. I have experienced even more dangerous circumstances. It might sound unbelievable but I can swear on my Dao heart that I have not lied at all. Now, I am still living fine. The Myriad Immortal Pavilion is still far from capable of destroying me."
Fourth Elder's heart leaped when he heard Yi Yun casually say those words.
He had survived the relentless pursuit of several Divine Lords in the past?
Fairy Purple Rain, who was standing beside him, gaped her tiny mouth. She found it unbelievable.
However, ignoring the fact that Yi Yun had sworn, even if he didn't, Fairy Purple Rain was inclined to believe him.
He was a person that defied the heavens. His alchemical and martial talent was already unbelievable. What was so surprising about a few more unbelievable feats?
The Myriad Immortal Pavilion was powerful but it was nothing compared to the collective efforts of a few Divine Lords.
Yi Yun placed his teacup down and said,"Fourth Elder, have you thought about it? Since, I, Yi Yun have already left Myriad City, I could have gone afar to a neighboring divine territory. There, no matter how capable the Myriad Immortal Pavilion is, it would not be able to pose a threat to me. However, I have returned. I'm not someone willing to take things lying down. It's fine if the enemy is too strong but as long as the enemy is not too powerful that I'm unable to put up a struggle, I will let them have a taste of their own medicine in the shortest amount of time. I never leave my grudges to the future. That is my character."
"You want to seek revenge on the Myriad Immortal Pavilion?" Fourth Elder was taken aback. There was no end to Yi Yun's arrogance, only more arrogance.
Si Shaoyu or Si Yusheng appeared to be arrogant people on the surface. They would act as if they were the most arrogant person in the world, but what meant true arrogance? A person like Yi Yun, who seemed to keep a low profile on the surface, would not say a thing but his heart was something nothing in the entire 12 Empyrean Heavens could satisfy. That was true arrogance!
"What right do you have to seek revenge on the Myriad Immortal Pavilion? According to what I know, you only have strength equivalent to the beginning stages of a Supremacy. Against the Myriad Immortal Pavilion, you are only making an ambitious attempt without any sense of your pitiable limitation."
"Naturally." Yi Yun nodded."I lack that strength but I can develop allies."
"Hahaha!" Fourth Elder laughed."So, you still intend to use my Guiyuan family as the vanguard. Why would my Guiyuan family listen to you?"
"Fourth Elder, there is one thing wrong about what you said. It's not limited to the Guiyuan family…" When Yi Yun said this, he came to a pause."There will be at least City Lord Qin. Other than that, I will also seek the Paradise Chapter… Through the alliance of several factions, that should be enough. As for what right I have…"
"Firstly, it stems from my illustrious future. I will sign a contract of non-animosity with any faction that cooperates with me. It will last forever as long as I don't perish. Having a powerful ally in the future is always something worth rejoicing about."
"As for the second reason…" Yi Yun came to a pause and turned his head to Fairy Purple Rain. He smiled and said,"What if I were to say that I can cure Fairy Purple Rain of her illness?"
"What?" Fairy Purple Rain subconsciously took a step back. She covered her mouth. Having been ill for so long, her body was turning weaker. Even though she claimed to be fine, she was feeling terrible. At times, she would feel a sense of despair late into the night.
She had thought of the numerous outcomes that would happen if there was no cure to the plague countless times. She would turn into a complete cripple or have her body possessed by the evil entity within her. Those were all terrifying outcomes.
She wanted to seek Yi Yun but she never believed that Yi Yun could cure the root of the problem. From what Yi Yun was able to do to Dong Xiaowan, he could only alleviate the symptoms.
Now, with Yi Yun saying that he could cure the plague, the impact it left on Fairy Purple Rain's mind was obvious.
