Chapter 140: Flowing Mercury Gown
Yi Yun took a few deep breaths and the surrounding frost Qi was sucked into his lungs. He could feel his blood stirring, which made him feel extremely comfortable.
“Miss Lin has refined many fierce beast relics for me. As it accumulated in number, it was only natural that I would make a breakthrough.”
Lin Xintong said, “You have previously reached the state of ‘Tempered Body, Dragon Pulse’. So, you needed a lot of energy to break through to the Purple Blood realm. It was not easy to accomplish that through your power alone!”
“At this point, there is nothing else I can help you with. Your future will be decided by yourself. I will be leaving the Cloud Wilderness and returning to the Lin family. Since you have killed the Frost Python, I’ll leave this set of Frost Python desolate bones with you, as materials for you to learn the Desolate Heaven technique.”
Yi Yun and Lin Xintong’s expedition to the Desolate Human Valley came to an end when they flew back to the Lian tribal clan overnight. Before separating at the entrance, Lin Xintong took out all of Yi Yun’s hunts from her interspatial wristband. The pile of fierce beast meat was already tied up in rope, forming a mountain of meat. Its weight was about fifty thousand kilograms.
Before her departure, Lin Xintong took a glance at Yi Yun’s blood-stained linen clothes and said, “I’ll give you a set of clothes…”
With that said, Lin Xintong’s fingers wiped the interspatial wristband and she took out a thin piece of apparel. It was extremely soft and looked like flowing mercury.
“This shirt is called Flowing Mercury Gown. It’s a piece of treasure. By wearing it, it can aid you in increasing your strength and help you reach the large success stage of the Minute Subtlety movement technique.”
As she said that, with some unknown gesture of hers, that flowing mercury gown flew into Yi Yun’s hands.
Yi Yun found that it was cold to the touch. It felt like holding a pool of water, which was very comfortable.
He was filled with curiosity. What was this Flowing Mercury Gown’s mystery? How could it increase his strength and improve his Minute Subtlety technique?
Yi Yun did not stand on ceremony and took off his linen shirt, exposing his shapely muscles.
After a few months of training, Yi Yun’s body was no longer thin and weak. He still looked thin with clothes on, but once he removed his clothes, he impressed people with his body’s muscular strength.
Every morning, Yi Yun would wake up to hear his joints popping. This proved that his body was growing very quickly!
Yi Yun found the Flowing Mercury Gown slick and cold when he wore it. It was very comfortable.
“It’s made of really good material. This Flowing Mercury Gown must cost a fortune.”
As Yi Yun thought about it, his face stiffened, oh? Something was wrong!
Yi Yun was surprised to find the Flowing Mercury Gown growing tighter. It bound his muscles to the point of feeling pain.
Not only that, a huge force was pressed into his body, pushing him down to the ground!
“So heavy!” Yi Yun grimaced. What sort of gown was this? It looked weightless like the wings of a cicada, yet its weight was at least more than 30,000 kilograms, and… Yi Yun felt that the weight was increasing!
That was not all. The robe seemed to possess an extremely strong elasticity. It took Yi Yun great effort to move because the gown completely restricted his muscles!
It was physically exhausting to even walk while wearing this set of clothes, let alone try to box!
“This Flowing Mercury Gown is a treasure made by my Lin family. In the city, there are many similar clothes like it, but none come close to the level of the Flowing Mercury Gown.”
“In the Flowing Mercury Gown, there is an array that absorbs Heaven Earth Yuan Qi and uses it as its power source. This set of clothing can change according to your preference. Its weight ranges from ten cauldrons to as many as a thousand cauldrons. The operating procedure is simple. I will explain it to you now…”
Lin Xintong explained the operating procedures of the Flowing Mercury Gown to Yi Yun. Yi Yun’s eyebrows kept twitching as he realized that such clothes existed in this world!
He finally understood Lin Xintong’s words of why wearing the set of clothes would aid him in attaining the large success stage of Minute Subtlety. It could be said that it was a constant form of training to wear the set of clothes.
Yi Yun followed Lin Xintong’s instructions and indeed, the weight of the Flowing Mercury Gown could be changed. But even at its lightest, the Flowing Mercury Gown still weighed 10,000 lbs.
The weight was actually not as important. What was important was the Flowing Mercury Gown’s strong binding strength. It made Yi Yun use a lot of strength just to stretch his body, or to box.
“I shall give you this Flowing Mercury Gown,” said Lin Xintong casually.
Yi Yun was stunned. Although Lin Xintong had simply described it, Yi Yun could guess that the Flowing Mercury Gown was not cheap. Yet, Lin Xintong had given it to him.
He was just about to say something when Lin Xintong began to float away. She was like a piece of cloud, flying up in the sky. With a blow of the wind, she had disappeared…
Yi Yun was somewhat disappointed. He had parted ways with Lin Xintong that day, and in a few days, he would step foot into the central plains.
The kingdom’s central plains were something Yi Yun had long anticipated!
Yi Yun looked at the huge mountain of meat beside him. He pulled the ropes and dragged the meat that was more than fifty thousand kilograms.
Having reached the Purple Blood realm, Yi Yun’s strength had grown. He lowered the weight of the Flowing Mercury Gown to five thousand kilograms. As for the binding strength of the Flowing Mercury Gown, it gave him difficulties stretching his body, but to maintain the pulling actions on the rope wasn’t difficult. Hence, it was simple for Yi Yun to drag the mountain of meat.
The fierce beasts tied up in the meat mountain had thick flesh and tough hides. Even as they were dragged, their meat did not get mangled. But due to the great weight of the fierce beasts, it left a huge ditch in his wake.
The scene of Yi Yun dragging the meat was shocking. As it was nearing noon, many of the Lian tribal clan’s people were out in the fields working.
They saw a moving mountain of meat from afar.
The people were shocked. When the meat neared them, they were shocked till their chins nearly fell to the ground on closer inspection.
Within the mountain of meat were tied up fierce beasts. The bigger ones were the size of a house. It weighed several thousand kilograms!
Everything in the large pile of fierce beasts was dead. Yi Yun was dragging them like he was dragging something worthless.
These… were killed by Yi Yun?
Did he go into the vast wilderness to hunt?
Those who thought of that were stunned.
To hunt in the vast wilderness was a dream-like phrase to the people of the Lian tribal clan.
If they could go into the vast wilderness to hunt, then there would be no lack of meat in the tribe.
But the vast wilderness was fraught with dangers. Even Purple Blood warriors did not dare venture too deep. They would usually hunt within a fifty kilometers radius of the village. And that was already considered very amazing!
Purple Blood warriors returning with one or two fierce beasts the size of a cattle would have been a great catch, but now, Yi Yun had dragged more than a hundred fierce beasts of various sizes. It was as if the ground had been littered with them for him to freely pick them up.
In the Cloud Wilderness, fierce beasts were synonymous with cruelty and death. Each fierce beast was terrifying and there was great risk hunting one. But Yi Yun was monstrous to be able to hunt them en masse!
Yi Yun had killed that many fierce beasts in the past few days? Had he ventured deep into the vast wilderness?
The people of the Lian tribal clan were at a lost for words. And especially the members of the warrior preparation camp who deeply understood the strength of the fierce beasts. They looked at Yi Yun as if he were a god, and wished they could kneel down and worship him.
In the vast wilderness, those with strength were respected. In the past, they could estimate Yi Yun’s strength from the kingdom’s selection, but they had no idea how strong Yi Yun really was.
But today, they had finally seen it.
He was a monster!
“Young Master Yi… hasn’t broken into the Purple Blood realm yet, right?”
Even the farmers knew that warriors had to reach the Purple Blood realm to go out into the vast wilderness to hunt. But how did Yi Yun manage to do so while he was at the peak of Mortal Blood realm?
“How would I know? Maybe he has already broken through. Even if he hasn’t, so what? Don’t you know, Young Master Yi was named the first in the selection, and was made a Kingdom Knight. Maybe his peak-Qi Gatherer realm is enough to match a Purple Blood’s fighting power!”
Hearing someone from the warrior preparation camp say that, the people were disturbed. If Yi Yun could match a Purple Blood realm at the Mortal Blood realm, what would the extent of his powers be when he really broke through to the Purple Blood realm?
It could be expected that Yi Yun would have a meteoric rise in the future and that he would amount to great things. If they could follow Yi Yun, being one of his servants or servant girls, then they could elevate their lives by clinging onto him, allowing them to not worry about food or clothing.
