Chapter 714: Warning
"So that's the reason...No wonder the disagreement turned so intense."
After hearing Jiang Xiaorou's narration of the dispute prior to his arrival, Yi Yun was not one bit surprised.
When it came to the brink of a race’s survival, it was very common for two large factions to fight so as to survive.
And a formation array was indeed the best weapon a weaker party could use to withstand a stronger party. If not, Yi Yun would not have raised the question of borrowing the God Confining Lock after choosing the "Thousand Snow Domain" and "Death Soulwood".
It was only because Yi Yun's nomological insights were too amazing that made the Sword Spirit and Chibai violate the rules set by the Pure Yang Sword Palace owner, resulting in the God Confining Lock being given to Yi Yun as some gift and loan combination.
Now, Yi Yun had the God Confining Lock in hand, so he had the confidence resisting the Black-armored Demon God. If not, the Black-armored Demon God basically could only be fought by Yi Yun and Lin Xintong. Others as strong as Shepherd Boy could hardly be effective.
"Yun'er, the situation was roughly like that." After updating him with the most recent ongoings, she felt her heart heavy.
"Yun'er, I have previously discussed with my mother. The Desolate race is determined to fight to the death. We do not want to flee again, and even if we all die fighting, we need to at least slice off a piece of meat from the Black-armored Demon God. Although we are determined to fight to the death, that is just a decision of the Desolate race's upper echelons. We cannot put our Desolate race's bloodline all to waste here. The Desolate race still needs to continue on..."
"However, after the battle with the Black-armored Demon God, even with the best outcome, the Desolate race would suffer heavy casualties. With the race's experts sacrificed, under such a situation, if the Human race finally destroyed the Black-armored Demon God that had been heavily injured by us, they might very well turn on the Desolate race. And if that happened, the Desolate race would not be able to put up any resistance."
"The mutual hatred between the Human and Desolate race runs too deep. They would not give up this chance, and only you and Miss Xintong have the ability to ensure that the Desolate race's lineage will carry on... Listen to Sis' advice, don't stay behind in the remote mountains. Now that you are back, if you get embroiled in this war and if there is any mishap, the consequences would be disastrous. My mother and I will give you all the heritage accumulated by the Desolate race for tens of millions of years. You and Miss Xintong are the future hope of this world. You are also the future guardian of the Desolate race. If our fight was to no avail, then only you and Miss Xintong have the chance of killing the Black-armored Demon God in the future. Sis really doesn't want you to lose the forest for the trees just because of your emotions, dying in this world and ruining the Desolate race's future. If you were to die here, it is a loss we cannot afford..."
All of this was said earnestly by Jiang Xiaorou. She really did not wish for Yi Yun to stay behind.
But the moment she thought of separating with Yi Yun, Jiang Xiaorou felt a throbbing pain in her heart that made it hard for her to breathe. Unfortunately, she was now like a tiny bird being locked on by a hawk. She was destined not to accompany Yi Yun, flying far away with him.
This was her destiny.
If possible, Jiang Xiaorou did not wish for so many Desolate race warriors to die for her.
However, be it her mother or the Desolate race warriors, they were already determined to fight to the death. Under such circumstances, if she were to say anything more, it would only weaken the soldiers' morale.
With the advent of a disaster, although it was not as bad as wiping out all life in this world, as this world's strongest group of people, there had to be some people who would pay the price so as to protect their race's heritage.
"Yun'er, are you listening to me?" Seeing how Yi Yun did not respond, Jiang Xiaorou turned anxious.
Yi Yun smiled and said, "Sis Xiaorou, my strength has vastly improved with my present return. Besides, over all these years, I have accumulated large amounts of treasures. These treasures are extraordinary, and just lack the opportunity to be used in the Tian Yuan world, as there are no opponents in the Tian Yuan world currently that are worthy for me to use these treasures."
Yi Yun spoke very confidently. There was no need to speak about the current him. Just a year ago, no one in the entire Tian Yuan world could threaten Yi Yun.
"Now, against the Black-armored Demon God, I can test out my ultimate combat strength. Sis Xiaorou, don't worry. Even if can't beat him, I have the confidence of escaping."
Yi Yun's words did not seem to contain any tension that would come from the impending face-off with a monstrous enemy. Instead, it sounded very relax.
Yi Yun had already put in all his efforts preparing for nearly a year, all for this battle. Initially, Yi Yun was in no rush to face the Black-armored Demon God in a head-on battle. He could slowly cultivate and slowly grow. But now, Jiang Xiaorou was targeted by the Black-armored Demon God, so Yi Yun decided to take this opportunity and test out his ultimate combat power. Even if he was not the Black-armored Demon God's match, Yi Yun believed he could safely escape.
With the God Advent Tower, as long as he sucked Jiang Xiaorou into it and flew away with the God Advent Tower, then where could the Black-armored Demon God go in order to chase Jiang Xiaorou? It was even possible that his spiritual connection would be severed.
"Yun'er, I said so much to you, yet you aren't listening..."
Seeing how Yi Yun completely did not put her words at heart, Jiang Xiaorou was at a loss as to what to say. She knew Yi Yun very well. She also knew that it was impossible for Yi Yun to just watch her fight to the death.
Her proposed idea of Yi Yun protecting the Desolate race's lineage was reasonable and indeed necessary. But even so, she had failed to persuade Yi Yun.
And at this moment, the Human race had already been waiting for quite a while. As Yi Yun and Jiang Xiaorou were engaged in a transmitted conversation, the entire meeting hall's humans were waiting, waiting for his leanings.
They knew Lin Xintong listened to Yi Yun, so Yi Yun was the ultimate arbiter. For the negotiation, he was extremely important, and had the decisive say. His right to decide was a result of his strength.
"Young master Yi, you should roughly know of the situation. So, I wonder, what is your decision?"
A legendary human figure could not bear it further and asked Yi Yun.
Yi Yun only smiled and did not speak a word. His smile made it very hard for the humans to fathom his thoughts. They didn't appear overbearing; for against Yi Yun, they had nothing to put up a fight with him.
Upon seeing Yi Yun's reaction, Mystic Tiger's face sunk. He could tell that Yi Yun was deliberately acting mysterious.
Mystic Tiger said in a cold tone, "Yi Yun, I know you are very strong, but don't you think that you can use your strength to rule over everything. The Cosmic Infinite Array is not just a set of array flags and an array disk. It has a special operational method. It was previously recorded on a jade scroll, but now, it is stored in our heads. It is an array handed down from tens of millions of years, and the array logic is profound and abstruse. Without the operating methods, it would be useless even if you obtain the array disk!"
"Besides...the array disk has a self-destructing component!"
Mystic Tiger had already offended Yi Yun, so he was not afraid, hence he had to be the one who said those threatening words.
He was warning Yi Yun not to use his strength to forcefully rob them of the Cosmic Infinite Array, for Yi Yun would receive nothing if he did so.
Upon hearing Mystic Tiger's words, Yi Yun laughed. Having designs on your Cosmic Infinite Array? You sure think too highly of yourself.
