Chapter 92: Another Sparring Match
“Uh…” Yi Yun was stumped.
Are we really sparring?
It can’t be, previously it was due to Old Man Su who had instructed Lin Xintong to fight him while fanning the flames by the side. Yi Yun could tell that Lin Xintong did not want to fight him back then.
Her cultivation level and his cultivation level could not be compared. It would be like an adult bullying a kid.
But maybe it was because Lin Xintong did not have any airs. She did not mind lowering her stature to give him some pointers. Because of this, that battle was fought.
But today, what was there to fight?
Yi Yun asked puzzledly, “Lady Lin, please don’t joke with me. What’s there to fight between the two of us?”
Lin Xintong shook her head and said, “I don’t like to joke around. As for why I want to battle you, it has to do with a secret of mine.”
“Secret?” Yi Yun’s curiosity was aroused. What sort of secret could such an extraordinary girl have?
It had to be said that as a modern netizen, Yi Yun was quite into gossip. But since she didn’t say, he did not probe further.
“But…my stomach is a bit hungry, I don’t have strength left for the day.” Yi Yun rubbed his stomach with a wry smile.
Lin Xintong fluttered down from the pine tree and stood in front of Yi Yun. With a flick of her finger, a light flashed past.
Yi Yun caught it without thinking and upon looking at it, it was a red crystal the size of a peanut. It was like crystallized blood and exuded a thick aura of energy.
“This…This can’t be a…desolate bone relic!?” Yi Yun was excited. The legendary desolate bone relics were refined by Desolate Heaven Masters, and worth a fortune. Only the rich and proud could enjoy it.
“No, ” Lin Xintong shook her head. “With your present strength, if you were to consume a desolate bone relic, you might explode. That’s a fierce beast relic that was refined by me. Usually, when the children of large families say they eat desolate bone relics for their cultivation, a large number of them are really eating fierce beast relics such as the one in your hand!”
“Fierce beast relic…” Yi Yun was stunned but quickly recovered as he understood. Right, there were many times the number of fierce beasts than desolate beasts. In the entire Cloud Wilderness, there were only fierce beasts out of the human’s wonderlands.
These fierce beasts had the power to absorb Heaven Earth Yuan Qi, and through that, they could grow stronger.
Killing these fierce beasts could easily allow them to be refined into a relic. Hence, it was no surprise that many of these fierce beast relics were consumed by the large family clans.
However, Lin Xintong had said that the beast relic was refined by her. It suddenly occurred to Yi Yun that the girl in front of him was a Desolate Heaven Master, or at least a quasi-Desolate Heaven Master.
There was a saying that comparing leads to exasperation. Not only was she of a noble background and extremely strong, she was also a Desolate Heaven Master. Obtaining such achievements in her teens was surely exasperating on a comparison.
“Your strength has risen to the Qi Gatherer realm, so I will increase my cultivation level by one, which means I’ll suppress myself to the fourth stage of Mortal Blood to battle you. I will still use the ‘Dragon Rib Tiger Bone Fist’, but you have to be careful. In the previous battle, I was not serious and because of something, I was distracted during the battle, but this time, I will not be distracted.” Lin Xintong said it faintly. The reason for her distraction during the last battle was naturally due to the changes she felt in her meridian channels.
Also, Lin Xintong’s meridian channels had some development when she was using ‘Dragon Rib Tiger Bone Fist’ against Yi Yun; so this time, she was still going to use ‘Dragon Rib Tiger Bone Fist’.
“Thank you for the lady’s reminder. I will be careful,” Yi Yun was playing with the beast relic in his hand and found that it emitted a tantalizing aroma as if it was an extremely delicious cuisine.
Under the moonlike, the relic was red but translucent like a red crystal.
It was indeed a work of art. It was enviable that Lin Xintong could refine such a beautiful fierce beast relic.
But no matter how beautiful it was, it had to be eaten because Yi Yun was hungry.
He ate it as if he was eating a popcorn, he just threw the beast relic into his mouth.
This was the first time he was eating an exquisite food. He realized that the relic was not as hard as he thought it would be, it was chewy and could be crushed with his teeth.
As Yi Yun chewed on the beast relic, it was like exquisite wine gushing out from the relic, filling his entire mouth.
“Delicious! It’s truly delicious! So this is the taste of a fierce beast relic. If I eat this often, I’m afraid I’ll get addicted! But fierce beast relics can’t replace a proper meal. It’s a totally different sensation from eating a salt-baked chicken.”
Eating delicacies was an enjoyment, drinking wine was another form of enjoyment, and so was smoking. Although the three were hard to compare, one could not replace the other.
With the relic in his stomach, the warm energy from it spread throughout Yi Yun’s body.
Yi Yun’s originally empty stomach suddenly filled up as Yi Yun felt the warm energy go wild within his body, making him keen to vent it out.
He wanted to really fight a match, immersing himself in combat!
Yi Yun looked at Lin Xintong with excitement.
Having had his fill, he wanted something to aid in his digestion. With such a high-level trainer, how could he not be excited?
Although he was at the peak of the Qi Gatherer realm, his strength was naturally great, but that was a flaw. He lacked the battle experience which paled in comparison to Lian Chengyu.
Lian Chengyu would spar daily with Yao Yuan. With Yao Yuan, a past Purple Blood warrior, he lived a life that dealt with bloodshed. The battle experiences that he had taught Lian Chengyu would be extraordinary.
As for Yi Yun, he did not know any fighting skills or techniques. All he had was just a Tempered Body, and having only gone through two rounds of true battle, his battle prowess was minimal.
Now he could spar with an expert like Lin Xintong, curing him of his weakness.
Yi Yun was so excited that he waved towards Lin Xintong to make her move, just short of saying ‘come at me’.
But Yi Yun quickly understood that one shouldn’t get carried away, otherwise one would regret it.
Just after he beckoned Lin Xintong to attack, she disappeared from his sight.
In a blink of an eye, Lin Xintong seemed to have teleported in front of Yi Yun. All he saw was a blur before he felt a blow to his chest as if a sledgehammer had hit him.
“Peng!” Lin Xintong’s palm had hit Yi Yun’s chest. Yi Yun felt as if his bones had deformed and his organs were in turmoil. It was very painful. That girl may look weak, but she was a human Tyrannosaurus!
Yi Yun crashed into a large tree, breaking it. He saw stars as he struggled to get up. Thankfully, all he ate was a fierce beast relic, if he had eaten something like a salt-baked chicken, he would have vomited everything out.
At that moment, Lin Xintong was not looking at Yi Yun but her hands.
That mysterious feeling still did not appear from that blow…
Was it really just an illusion?
Lin Xintong was a bit disappointed as she looked back at Yi Yun. She said lightly, “You were too careless. Real warriors constrict their pupils when facing an enemy so that they can monitor each and every move of their enemies. Just before I attacked you, your eyes may have been looking at me, but they were not watching my actions but they were watching my face.”
When Lin Xintong said those words, Yi Yun blushed red. This girl’s eyes were really venomous.
You shouldn’t have said it out loud even if you noticed that!
Yi Yun coughed and re-adjusted his mental state and began to seriously look at Lin Xintong’s every move.
It was true that Yi Yun had been too careless. Looking at Lin Xintong’s face was just a subconscious act. He wasn’t a battle-hardened warrior, so he could not emulate what Lin Xintong said about constricted pupils and the observation of every movement.
Lin Xintong may be pretty, but Yi Yun had just met her by chance. He had a favorable impression of her but did not have any other thoughts.
