Chapter 715: Might
"What are you laughing at?" When he saw Yi Yun laugh, Mystic Tiger felt discomfort all over. Yi Yun was not even thirty years of age, and when compared to human Empyreal Kings, who counted their ages in the tens of thousands of years, this young junior was not even enough to be described as a suckling child.
For a suckling kid to produced such a smile in front of him, how could Mystic Tiger feel comfortable?
"Young master Yi, now that you have arrived at the remote mountains to save the Desolate race and Fairy Jiang, that courage is highly commendable. Furthermore, Young master Yi is accomplished at such a young age, and you have extraordinary strength. You are truly a hero of the Human race. Then, I shall represent the Human race and compromise."
At this moment, another legendary human figure spoke up. He was afraid of Yi Yun and Lin Xintong's strength, and he had already come to a unanimous agreement with the other Tian Yuan Elder Consortium members through Yuan Qi voice transmissions.
"If Young master Yi wants the Cosmic Infinite Array, then we have two conditions. The first is Shepherd Boy. On this point, Shepherd Boy has already agreed to it, so I will not make it any harder. As for the second condition, I wish for Young master Yi and Fairy Lin to promise, using a soul contract, that after the Black-armored Demon God is vanquished, the both of you will never attack the factions that we belong to. As long as you assent to these two conditions, the Cosmic Infinite Array's array flag and its usage methods can be taken by Young master Yi."
Towards Yi Yun and Lin Xintong, the humans still had their reservations. Now, they had raised this condition once again. In their opinions, although this condition limited Yi Yun and Lin Xintong, the limitations weren’t that great. It was something easily agreeable.
As for the first condition, Shepherd Boy had agreed to it himself, so it was not difficult.
However, the humans never expected that the conditions that had ‘little room for resistance’ made Yi Yun look at the speaking Elder like he was looking at a fool.
"It's just a few crappy flags left behind by Blood Moon. In my eyes, it’s just trash. You are using that stuff to strike a deal with me? Have you all fried your brains while escaping into the Divine Wilderness?"
Yi Yun's sudden words not only stunned the human warriors, even the Desolate race warriors were momentarily dumbfounded.
No one knew who created the ancient array tens of millions of years ago was. Blood Moon was only the preserver of the ancient array, yet such a profound ancient array had been described as a few crappy flags by Yi Yun?
Jiang Xiaorou was momentarily at a loss as to what to say. As for the former Desolate Queen, she too looked in alarm at Yi Yun. As time passed, she was more aware of what had happened to Yi Yun. She knew that he may be young, but he was not an insolent or arrogant person.
Be it in the God Advent Tower or the Soul Tomb, Yi Yun had managed to open a bloody path amidst his competitors and enemies, becoming the ultimate victor. All of these proved that point.
Such a person caused the former Desolate Queen to be inclined to believe in his words.
She did not speak and she allowed Yi Yun to represent the Desolate race. She did not know what Yi Yun was planning.
As for the legendary human figures, after being mocked by Yi Yun in such a manner, they did not dare to rise up. Yi Yun's strength made them lack the courage to retort with a taunt.
In their hearts, they believed that Yi Yun said those words to forcibly act awesome.
A human elder said coldly, "Young master Yi, you are probably just trying to weaken our negotiating chips by deprecating the Cosmic Infinite Array so badly. This tiny trick of yours is completely meaningless. Since you can't accept our conditions, then don't covet the Cosmic Infinite Array. Alright then, we shall leave. I believe that there is already no need to carry on this negotiation."
As the human elder spoke, he stood up, preparing to leave.
As he got up, he observed Yi Yun's reaction.
This feeling was like a mortal buying merchandise from a vendor. He might be unhappy with the vendor's offer price, but he was also reluctant to part with the merchandise. Hence, he would pretend to walk off, but he was in fact waiting for the vendor to change his mind to keep him there.
This human elder was indeed hoping for Yi Yun to change his mind. To get him to really rebuff Yi Yun was not something he could stomach either.
After all, the human race was afraid of Yi Yun. If through the use of the Cosmic Infinite Array, they could get Yi Yun to sign a soul contract and ensure the peaceful coexistence between Yi Yun and themselves in the future, it was worth it.
However… the human elder was disappointed.
Yi Yun's hands were still nonchalantly placed on the meeting table. He was only looking coldly at the elder who pretended to leave. It was a look of "well go, I won't send you off".
"What about the rest of you? Are you planning on leaving together with him?"
Yi Yun looked at the other legendary human figures, and he was completely unworried about them leaving.
These legendary human figures were momentarily at a loss as to what to say. They could even make concessions towards their original conditions, such as not needing Shepherd Boy to sign a soul contract.
They never expected that Yi Yun did not even bother negotiating, and let them all leave.
"Alright! Alright! How true it is that newborn calves are not afraid of tigers." Mystic Tiger glared at Yi Yun as his moustache quivered. "I want to see how you can carry on acting tough in a few days time! Having not seen the Black-armored Demon God, you will never imagine how terrifying he is. Those newborn calves, who aren't afraid of a tiger, only end up dying in the tiger's belly. Yi Yun, when you face the Black-armored Demon God, you will know how arrogant and stupid you were today!"
As Mystic Tiger spoke, he flicked his sleeves and walked away.
And behind him, Yi Yun slurred, "You don't have to worry if I will die in the tiger's belly. But I have to admit that in a few days when I face the Black-armored Demon God, even if I'm no match for him, I have quite the confidence that I can escape. I have plenty of time. I can slowly drag it out. Once the danger of the Black-armored Demon God is over, I will personally go to your, Senior Mystic Tiger's doorstep. Oh… I forgot to ask. Senior Mystic Tiger, what faction do you belong to?"
As Yi Yun spoke, he scanned the Desolate race present. He only knew from the former Desolate Queen's words that the black-dressed elder's name was Mystic Tiger. As for what his identity was, Yi Yun did not know a thing.
Yi Yun's words caused Mystic Tiger Immortal's footsteps to falter. His expression turned extremely ugly.
Just Yi Yun's present strength was enough for them to fear him, let alone a few years later.
As for visiting him personally? When Yi Yun became the number one person in the Tian Yuan world, he might even be comparable to the ancient Great Empress. Who would dare to let him make a ‘personal visit’?
This was a unmarred threat. Mystic Tiger's faction was also a top level faction in the Tian Yuan world. He may run, but his territory and faction could not be hidden. Once Yi Yun had the absolute strength, it would be extremely simple for him to destroy Mystic Tiger's faction!
"Yi Yun… If you do anything to my faction, all the large factions in the Tian Yuan world will feel insecure. When that happens, it will be equivalent to you making a move on the entire Tian Yuan world's Human race. Do you really want to go against the world?"
Mystic Tiger knew that he could not overthrow Yi Yun based on strength, so he highlighted the entire Tian Yuan world, hinting to him that he would become the enemy of all.
"Are you threatening me?" Yi Yun laughed. "Do you think I'll be afraid just because you mention the world? Why don't you threaten the Black-armored Demon God? Why don't you ask him why he dares to make a move against the entire Tian Yuan world, and why does he dare to become the enemy of all?"
"What a joke. The Black-armored Demon God has been destroying heritage and slaughtering lives. All of you just flee on sight, and now, even before the Black-armored Demon God has arrived, you are already discussing on how to escape."
"As for me, I'm more merciful. As a result, you start staring at me, imposing all sorts of conditions on me!!"
"Why don't you raise conditions with the Black-armored Demon God? Why don't you gather the 'world''s forces to destroy this 'enemy of the all', the Black-armored Demon God?"
"To those merciful to you, you think that they are easily bullied. To those who are forceful, you feel scared. What sort of meaning do the lives of such people like you have?"
Yi Yun's words was right to the point and they were extremely biting. When the humans present heard this, their faces turned flushed. They did not know how to refute him.
Yi Yun compared himself to the Black-armored Demon God. He was too insolent!
Although the humans present all believed that Yi Yun was still greatly lacking compared to the Black-armored Demon God, but as long as Yi Yun survived this calamity, in the future, his strength could indeed reach that stage!
Yi Yun carried on. "All of you have not understood the gravity of the situation. Today, I'm not here to negotiate with you, nor do I need to negotiate. I'm only informing all of you. For the next invasion of the Black-armored Demon God, if you were to join forces with the Desolate race in battle, I will remember your contributions. If not, you are free to leave! The Desolate race will not send a single soldier or peon to escort you safely out of the Divine Wilderness. How many of you can survive will be up to your own destinies."
"And once the crisis of the Black-armored Demon God is over, the Tian Yuan world will be in ruins. There will be a need to restore order. As for how this order will be decided… " As Yi Yun said this, he dragged out his tone. "I don't dare to say that I'll rule over the new order of the Tian Yuan world, but I will at least be able to influence it at 80 or 90%. And that is something I admit I'm capable of."
"Rest assured, I will not kill the innocent. It's just that the gridlock in the Tian Yuan world has existed for too long. It is time to destroy it and rebuild it again. And when that happens, whether the top factions continue being prosperous or be dispersed and replaced, I didn't think it is right for me to decide on it. But now, all of you have brought me to make a decision."
By saying these words, he sounded extremely domineering. It was a spirit of ruling the world. When the humans present heard this, their hearts twitched, unsure as to what to say.
As for the Desolate race, when they heard Yi Yun's words, they felt their spirits raised. This negotiation was doomed and difficult to negotiate. But now with Yi Yun here, he had dispersed Mystic Tiger's forceful stance with a simple sentence. He couldn't even be bothered to raise conditions, and he refused to accept any conditions of the Human race.
He had made the Human race leave the Cosmic Infinite Array behind unconditionally, and even wanted them to stay behind to fight alongside the Desolate race to the death.
What was might? This was might!
