Chapter 112: Ten crimes
The members of the Lian tribal clan warrior preparation camp were completely stunned. They stared with their eyes wide open, mouths agape for a long while.
The invincible master Lian in their hearts, had been beaten so miserably by that bumpkin Yi Yun?
“What’s…the meaning of this?”
“Isn’t Lian Chengyu at the peak of the Qi Gatherer realm?”
Some people who knew Lian Chengyu’s cultivation level said stupendously.
Among the five realms of Mortal Blood, the peak-Qi Gatherer realm was the highest cultivation level of Mortal Blood. A person at that level was an extreme existence that could only be defeated by a Purple Blood realm warrior!
“It can’t be? Is Yi Yun a Purple Blood realm warrior?” Someone thought of that and said trembly.
“How could it be? A Purple Blood warrior would not need to participate in the Mortal Blood warriors’ contest. Also, the Jin Long Wei would not allow it. Besides, how old is Yi Yun? He’s only twelve, how can he be at the Purple Blood realm at twelve?” When someone mentioned Yi Yun’s age, everyone suddenly stared speechlessly at each other.
Yes, Yi Yun was just twelve years old, two years younger than Tao Yunxiao!
A twelve-year-old’s had the battle power that could beat up Lian Chengyu, what kind of monster was he?!
At that moment, Yi Yun was walking slowly towards Lian Chengyu.
Lian Chengyu’s hands were trembling and he climbed out from the rocks. His face was covered with blood and his expression ferocious!
Yi Yun looked at Lian Chengyu with stabbing eyes.
“I have said before that you have ten charges! You owe me ten lives!!”
“For every crime, I will beat you once, just now… was the first!”
Yi Yun’s sonorous voice could be heard a few kilometers away. Everyone heard it clearly.
“The first crime!”
“You rear henchman and you rule by oppression. You monopolized the tribe’s food and resources. The commoners work hard but the rations handed out to them isn’t enough to fill their stomachs. The clothes handed out are not enough. Every year people starve and freeze to death. Your hands are stained with the blood of many Lian tribal clan lives!”
“The blow previously was for them! This life was what you owe the commoners of the Lian tribal clan!” Yi Yun’s words shocked everyone. Initially, Lian Chengyu had accused Yi Yun of stealing his desolate bone essence, leading them to believe that Lian Chengyu was the victim.
But in a turn of an eye, Yi Yun had accused Lian Chengyu of ten crimes!
Clearly, Lian Chengyu’s feud with Yi Yun was not as simple as Lian Chengyu had said!
“You want to judge me on ten crimes? Who do you think you are?” Lian Chengyu managed to squeeze those words out from his mouth. He hated Yi Yun to the bone!
With Yi Yun having the absolute advantage and the upper hand, the reversal of the situation started with Lian Chengyu being mercilessly hit to the ground. It was maddening that the haughty him had been hit in such an embarrassing manner in front of so many people.
In the event of a sudden reversal and extreme humiliation, it was easy for people to go blank.
Lian Chengyu’s mind was currently blank. He had lost his ability to think so he was no longer able to calmly measure the difference in strength between him and Yi Yun. The only thought he had was to tear Yi Yun apart!
Lian Chengyu gritted his teeth and pounced towards Yi Yun!
“Tiger Claws Smite Rocks”!
Lian Chengyu’s claws reached out as his bones rang!
Lian Chengyu was a martial arts prodigy in the vast wilderness. He had grasped the essence of ‘Dragon Rib Tiger Bone Fist’ taught to him by Yao Yuan.
The ‘Tiger Claws Smite Rocks’ resulted in his bones and tendons to sound out as one. Using the power of his waist and spine, it was like a real tiger pouncing over.
But, the outcome was not to be doubted!
Yi Yun’s speed was too fast, far above what Lian Chengyu was capable of. At the same time, Yi Yun’s eyesight was able to make judgments in the middle of a battle. Besides his ability to make judgments having reached its peak, Yi Yun’s body and strength were better than Lian Chengyu’s, so he could easily resolve any attack Lian Chengyu used!
Lian Chengyu’s stance was received by Yi Yun, who locked on to Lian Chengyu’s wrist!
With “Ka Ka Ka” joint crackling sounds, Yi Yun’s hands clench tightly causing Lian Chengyu’s forehead to ooze with sweat due to the extreme pain!
“I don’t think I’m anyone great, but I’m qualified to try you for your crimes just because I’m stronger than you! In this world, the weak are enslaved and the strong are regarded as lords!” With that said, Yi Yun pulled Lian Chengyu’s hands down. Lian Chengyu had no way of resisting it so his entire body moved downwards.
Immediately, Yi Yun leaped up and struck Lian Chengyu’s chest with a knee!
Lian Chengyu violently sprayed out a mouthful of fresh blood. About eight ribs had broken, and his body flew in the air like a torn sack before heavily falling to the ground!
Yi Yun wiped off the blood on his hands and coldly said, “The second crime!”
“You forced the people of the Lian tribal clan to go up the mountains to pick herbs. Among those who picked herbs were children. Yet they had to climb up cliffs and go down valleys. There were a countless number of people who fell to their deaths! And you were indifferent to those who had fallen to their deaths. No aid was given!”
“Once, I fell off the rocks while picking herbs and was on death’s bed. I was even buried in a grave. I managed to survive that disaster, but similarly, I didn’t receive any aid. Even when I returned home to eat that watery rice porridge, it was my sister who sacrificed her meal for me! Without dying, not only did I not receive the sympathy and comfort from the tribe, I was ridiculed by your goons, thinking I wouldn’t live past a few more days even though I had survived once.”
“This second life is what you owe to the medicine children of the Lian tribal clan, and also to me!”
After saying those words indifferently, Yi Yun walked towards Lian Chengyu again.
“You… you…” Lian Chengyu struggled to get up. Lian Chengyu’s mouth began to foam with blood like a desiccated goldfish.
His eyes were filled with boundless hatred for Yi Yun.
He had undergone ten years of honing his art and he had used various herbs. His bones and internal organs had been repeatedly trained up. So even after such a blow, he still had his fighting capacity.
“I’ll kill you!”
Humiliation, anger, the realization of the difference between ideal and reality, and with the failure to break through into the Purple Blood realm, together with the hate towards Yi Yun had made Lian Chengyu completely lose his mind.
Upon reaching this stage, no matter how composed one was, one would not be able to calm down.
Lian Chengyu was exactly so.
He charged towards Yi Yun and threw a punch at Yi Yun’s face!
Without any suspense, Lian Chengyu’s punch was easily pushed aside by Yi Yun.
Following that, Yi Yun sent out a punch, hitting Lian Chengyu in the face.
He gave him the taste of his own medicine!
Lian Chengyu cried out terribly as his body tumbled in the air and flew off once again.
His face was already stained green, red, purple and black by Yi Yun. There was every color imaginable.
His nose had been punched in by Yi Yun. His two front teeth had been punched out by Yi Yun!
“The third crime, you used the kingdom’s selection as a way to leave the vast wilderness, misappropriating the Lian tribal clan’s food reserves to exchange with a large tribal clan for a piece of desolate bone. You then used the people to refine the desolate bone. The people were tricked by your woven lies about bringing them into the city. Because we had very little food, many in the Lian tribal clan starved or froze to death in the past few months.”
“And my sister had been working through the night to make arrows in order to exchange a piece of meat for me. But on the day of the distribution of rations, not only was there no beast meat, there was also insufficient fine grain. There was only a small bag of coarse grain. It was tantamount to sending us siblings to our death! My sister tried to struggle against it but nearly got beaten up by your minions!”
“This life is one that you owe those who starved to death in the Lian tribal clan, and also for me and my sister!” Yi Yun’s expression was cold, but his voice was confident. He announced Lian Chengyu’s crimes one at a time. The onlookers could only watch agape.
No one had expected that the battle would turn into such a scene.
They never expected that Yi Yun had nearly been killed by Lian Chengyu. He was lucky to have survived.
But now was his time for revenge.
If what Yi Yun had said was true, then beating Lian Chengyu was perfectly justified!
Of course, Lian Chengyu wanting to kill Yi Yun for Yi Yun’s theft of his desolate bone essence was also understandable!
The bitter vendetta between the two was like the incompatibility of fire and water. At that moment, no matter who was right or wrong, whoever had the greater strength was right! Whoever was weaker deserved death!
This was the revenge rules of the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom!
At that moment, the members of the warrior preparation camp were completely stunned. They stared dumbfoundedly at Yi Yun without a word, as if he was a ghost.
Lian Chengyu and Yi Yun’s battle was like a completely one-sided battle between a child and an adult!
They realized the possibility that their master would end up in a very sorry state today!
Lian Chengyu got up again. His spirit was on the verge of collapsing!
Yes, compared to the physical wounds, it was the mental anguish that made it unbearable!
When people reached this stage, they might burst a socket and go mad.
Lian Chengyu was still not that mad, but he was very close to that point.
He charged at Yi Yun once again!
His attack was without any technique. The first three moves were the stances of the ‘Dragon Rib Tiger Bone Fist’, but now, it was simply brute force.
With the ‘Dragon Rib Tiger Bone Fist’ already useless against Yi Yun, this brute force was meaningless against Yi Yun.
Lian Chengyu threw a punch at Yi Yun’s belly, but Yi Yun contracted his belly, condensed his Qi at his dantian, and received Lian Chengyu’s punch!
If it was ‘Dragon Rib Tiger Bone Fist’, Yi Yun would not have directly taken on the hit. But such a strike had greatly diminished in power after Lian Chengyu received three consecutive heavy blows. Therefore, Yi Yun was able to receive it without much pressure.
After receiving Lian Chengyu’s punch, he emitted a muffled grunt. However, Yi Yun did not even take a step back. In return, he was giving Lian Chengyu a cold stare!
“The fourth crime, you hated me for inciting the people to revolt, and secretly attacked me, causing me to be on the brink of death. You owe me for this life.” With that said, Yi Yun punched Lian Chengyu in the belly.
Lian Chengyu’s body curled up like a shrimp. No matter how Lian Chengyu attacked Yi Yun, Yi Yun would return it in the exact same way!
