Chapter 1196: Skyfire Sacred Hands's Counterattack
Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon
"Sacred Hands, my… my dantian…" Si Shaoyu was at a complete loss. The pain he had experienced from Skyfire Sacred Hands burning his dantian was still vivid in his mind. It was truly an excruciating pain. He naturally suspected that his dantian had been injured as a result.
Now, he was deeply regretting that he had been treated by Skyfire Sacred Hands, and even hated him somewhat. However, he did not dare voice it because of the massive force the Nine Cauldron Alchemical Sect was.
This was not limited to Si Shaoyu. Everyone present was looking at Skyfire Sacred Hands. Instantly, people broke into a flurry of discussion.
"No wonder the evil spirit was stimulated. It's because of the pill Skyfire Sacred Hands fed him. Mr. Lin is right. Previously, Dong Xiaowan had consumed a Body Cleansing Pill and the evil spirit was stimulated. Furthermore, Skyfire Sacred Hands' pill is an inflammatory medicine!"
"It looks like Skyfire Sacred Hands was unable to cure the root of its problem but gave excessive treatment anyway, damaging Si Shaoyu's dantian."
"Now the Myriad Immortal Pavilion has really shot itself in the foot. The expert they invited from the Nine Cauldron Alchemical Sect almost caused them to lose Si Shaoyu."
Many alchemists present were pleased to see the Nine Cauldron Alchemical Sect suffer. As for the Myriad Immortal Pavilion that always looked down on them, they didn’t get any sympathy. They were simply enjoying the show and hoping for it to get more exciting.
As for the other factions like the Guiyuan family, they were even more delighted. The crippling of a genius from the Myriad Immortal Pavilion was definitely something worth celebrating.
At that moment, Skyfire Sacred Hands's expression turned ugly as he was under the scrutiny of thousands of people. He had failed to cure the plague and the treasures had been all taken by Yi Yun. Now, because of his treatment, he ended up being accused. Skyfire Sacred Hands began to feel that his choice to come to the Myriad Divine Territory made him no different than an idiot.
The Nine Cauldron Alchemical Sect's heritage had not only failed to shine at the Grand Alchemical-cum-Medical Meet, but ended up being a joke. How could Skyfire Sacred Hands tolerate that?
He glared at Yi Yun, his eyes revealing a barely detectable intent to kill.
He believed Yi Yun was the one up to no good. He had been framed by Yi Yun, but he had no idea how Yi Yun had done it. Even if Yi Yun could cure the evil spirit, it was impossible for him to make the evil spirit obey his commands. If he could expel and stimulate it as he wished, wouldn't that make him a god?
He definitely had a way to manipulate all of this!
It was a genuine fact that Yi Yun had treated the illness. There was no doubt that the evil spirit had been rid by his hand.
The second time, Yi Yun had treated Skyfire Sacred Hands and used the same azure-green energy. Skyfire Sacred Hands had watched carefully with his own eyes. But strangely, the same energy eliminated the evil spirit the first time but stimulated another evil spirit the second time. It was completely unbelievable.
"Martial Uncle, we… we…"
The red-dressed girl was somewhat at a loss. Although she was arrogant, she was still young. They had always enjoyed being placed on a pedestal, but now they were being repressed by many, and pointed at while people, who thought of them as jokes, wagged their tongues. Although she was unwilling to accept it, she was somewhat at a loss from this blow. She was unsure of how to counter the accusations.
She saw Yi Yun standing in front of her with his hands behind his back. There was a faint smile on his lips. Suddenly, she lost all her confidence. The man seemed unfathomable, like an ancient deep lake that had unexplorable depth.
It was the six-fingered youth beside her that maintained his calm. He transmitted his voice to Skyfire Sacred Hands and proposed his theory.
Skyfire Sacred Hands's gaze turned heavy. Adding what his martial nephew had said and his own beliefs, he formed a hypothesis. Even if the hypothesis did not match reality, it was the only way for him to counterattack.
He suddenly took a step forward, towards Yi Yun. His aura surged as he attempted to repress Yi Yun.
"Lin Yun, is it? The way you administered treatment is indeed simple, as simple as waving your hand and eliminating the evil spirit. I'm very curious as to how you did it. Do you know medicine? Or it is alchemy? The Desolate Heaven technique? You don't seem to be a renowned alchemist in the Myriad Divine Territory!"
Skyfire Sacred Hands acutely knew that if Yi Yun was truly famous, he would not have been sitting amongst the crowd. He would have been specially invited to sit in a seat of honor.
With Skyfire Sacred Hands saying that, all the alchemists of the Myriad Divine Territory were taken aback. Indeed, Yi Yun was an unknown. They had never seen him before.
How could an alchemist that suddenly appeared have such skills, capable of besting the Nine Cauldron Alchemical Sect's Skyfire Sacred Hands so easily?
"I suspect…" Skyfire Sacred Hands came to a pause as his voice suddenly turned clear and loud, resounding through the entire area—
"I suspect that you are connected to the evil spirits!"
"Regarding this plague, you can control the evil spirits entrenched in the dantian as you please!"
"I heard that the evil spirits appeared from an ancient ruin. You might have been to the ancient ruin, or even hailed from that ancient ruin. You have a secret technique or particular treasure that allows you to control the evil spirits! It's even possible that you’ve been rearing these evil spirits! That’s the only way to explain your sudden appearance and how you can easily solve a problem that has left so many alchemists and doctors helpless!"
Skyfire Sacred Hands' words reverberated through the sky, with each word entering the ears of every person. It left everyone in a daze.
These evil spirits were reared by Lin Yun?
It sounded ridiculous at first, but what Skyfire Sacred Hands said made sense. The evil spirits that so many doctors and alchemists had failed to resolve, including Skyfire Sacred Hands himself, had been easily removed by Lin Yun, a doctor that had never been seen before. It was indeed somewhat unbelievable, and there might have been something suspicious about the whole thing.
"Lin Yun! You reared the evil spirits and infected the geniuses of Myriad City, spreading the plague. You plotted to deliberately cause panic and then appear at the highly anticipated meet, vanquishing the evil spirits. Then, you pushed the blame on me. As such, you would obtain large amounts of riches and the treasures prepared by the Myriad Immortal Pavilion. You would gain both fame and wealth, but we would be like idiots, fooled by you!"
"Now, I want you to hand over the evil artifact or mystic technique that controls the evil spirits. Otherwise, don't even think of leaving here today!"
Skyfire Sacred Hands was aggressive. If the evil spirits were really reared by Yi Yun, then the mystic technique to rear them was extremely valuable!
Although these evil spirits were unorthodox, they would have countless uses for the Nine Cauldron Alchemical Sect. Whether it was using them to deal with their enemies, engage in evil schemes, or to earn riches, they were an excellent tool!
This mystic technique was something his Nine Cauldron Alchemical Sect definitely wanted!
Even if there was no mystic technique, then framing Yi Yun would also redeem the Nine Cauldron Alchemical Sect’s and his reputations.
Skyfire Sacred Hands entertained all sorts of thoughts as he constantly used his aura to repress Yi Yun.
At that moment, Yi Yun had become the focus of the meet.
Although Skyfire Sacred Hands sounded like he had framed Yi Yun, to truly prove his words false seemed almost impossible.
"What the hell happened…?"
The alchemists of Myriad City were left baffled. There had been many twists and turns at the Grand Alchemical-cum-Medical Meet, so many that no one knew what the truth was anymore.
