Chapter 358: At the end of the Road
“Earth Fire alchemy lab? That will probably do…” Shentu Nantian said treating the matter lightly.
Shentu Nantian’s statement had decided the matter.
What else could King Chu do? With the entire Tai Ah Divine Kingdom teetering on the brink of destruction, how could he possibly disobey Young Master Nantian’s orders?
“Uncle Zhou, arrange the Herbal Royal Lab for Young Master Nantian.” As King Chu spoke, he glanced at Yi Yun. He had been noting Yi Yun’s reaction the entire time. He too felt some sympathy for this young man.
“Yes, your Highness.”
Uncle Zhou was the elder in gray that had been following King Chu all this time. He was King Chu’s personal guard as well as the steward of the Chu royal residence.
“Uncle Zhou, let me and Dingkun arrange it.” Yang Yuefeng said. He was eager to do the job and seize this opportunity to please Shentu Nantian. An opportunity like this was very rare.
“Young Master Ding, Young Master Feng…” Uncle Zhou hesitated for a bit but did not stop them. He just quietly stood by King Chu’s side.
Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng looked at Yi Yun with mocking glances and solicitously said to Shentu Nantian, “Young Master Nantian, shall we do it now? If you need any materials, we will prepare them for you immediately.”
Yang Dingkun patted his chest as a guarantee.
Shentu Nantian said with a smile, “There is no need. I am afraid that you do not have the things I need.”
“Yes, yes, yes. The things Young Master Nantian need must be priceless treasures that we cannot prepare. Sorry for the joke displayed before you.” Although he had been despised, he still flattered Young Master Nantian cheerfully.
At that moment, Shentu Nantian turned towards Jiang Xiaorou.
As for Yi Yun, he was standing in front of Jiang Xiaorou with his right fist clenched and his left hand was on his right hand’s interspatial ring.
At that moment, Yi Yun was like a sparrow protecting its young against a foul hawk in front of him.
“Your name is Yi Yun right? I can feel that you are very promising. To have such accomplishments while being born in such a small country. Breaking through to the Yuan Foundation realm at such a young age and having such a solid foundation is extremely difficult.”
“Cherish your future and do not do anything stupid. I have repeatedly stressed that humans and desolate beasts are bitter enemies! Do you not see how this beast horde was stirred up? The Desolate race are willing to kill trillions of civilians without even blinking, just to accomplish their goals!”
“The sister you have behind you has a special bloodline. I definitely cannot let her live. For once she is found by the Desolate race, there will definitely be a scourge.”
As Shentu Nantian spoke, he walked towards Yi Yun and Jiang Xiaorou.
However, Yi Yun gritted his teeth as he remained standing in front of Jiang Xiaorou.
Shentu Nantian frowned. He stared into Yi Yun’s eyes for a few seconds, Yi Yun did not relent and stared back.
Shentu Nantian’s expression sank as his patience was limited.
“I am saying this for the last time. I am giving you the time it takes to take 3 breaths to get out of my way.”
Yi Yun took a deep breath. He felt as if his heart was bleeding, but he still endured it, “Young Master Nantian, I beg of you, let my sister go. You can put restrictions on her, but…”
“Oh!?” Shentu Nantian’s face turned cold as his aura exploded. Originally, Shentu Nantian gave people the feeling of a gently breeze. His usual temperament was like that of a elegant breeze, giving people a comfortable feeling.
However, now, he was like an evil demon. It was like a ferocious beast had awoken within Shentu Nantian’s body!
Suddenly, Shentu Nantian became extremely scary.
Shentu Nantian waved his hand, making Yi Yun feel a terrifying force surge towards him from all sides. The blood within his body seemed to freeze at that moment. His meridians, his key points and his energy had been completely locked.
This energy was too terrifying as Yi Yun was powerless to resist it. His entire body was sent flying by the energy, heavily slamming into the Chu royal residence’s wall!
With a loud bang, the one foot-thick wall collapsed. Stones fell as Yi Yun was buried in rubble, his body now completely covered in stone and dust!
At that moment, Yi Yun felt as if all of his organs had been misplaced. He felt something in his throat as he spat out a mouthful of blood.
This sudden scene stunned everyone.
Under Shentu Nantian’s sudden attack, the powerful Yi Yun was like a helpless baby.
Chu Xiaoran and company felt their hearts clench as they were worried about Yi Yun. A wise man does not fight when the odds are stacked against him. They were afraid that Yi Yun would be rash and do something stupid.
However, there were also people like Yang Dingkun, Yang Yuefeng and company who were now smiling. This was great, it really felt great!
Shentu Nantian’s voice said coldly, “I gave you face, but you did not want it. Who do you think you are? I appreciate you and can speak to you pleasantly, but if I hate you, you can be squashed by me like an ant!”
“I have taught you the ways of being human countless times, telling you to keep away from the Desolate race, but you! You repeatedly go against me. Do you really think that I would tolerate you time and again?”
At that moment, Shentu Nantian revealed a natural regal air to him and was extremely scary!
He was like a King who held the rights to life. One moment, he was pleasant, in the next moment, he was killing people out of anger. His moods made it hard for people to grasp it.
“I warn you for the last time, draw a line with the Desolate race. If you do so, then you will be one of us Humans. If you do not, I will kill you with my own hands!”
Shentu Nantian’s final words were filled with murderous intent.
Jiang Xiaorou ran in front of the rubble and helped Yi Yun up. At that moment, Yi Yun’s mouth was full of blood. The blood had mixed with the dust, turning its color into a reddish-black.
Seeing Yi Yun in such a state, Jiang Xiaorou’s heart broke. She bit her lips. In this situation, she was helpless.
She looked at Shentu Nantian and sobbed, “Do not fight anymore… I will follow you.”
“Haha!” Hearing Jiang Xiaorou’s words, Shentu Nantian laughed heartily, “Such a sickening sibling relationship. For a human and one of the Desolate race to have such feelings for each other, that they can give up their lives to protect the other is laughable to an extreme!”
“Do you think that you would have the chips to negotiate with me if you were to leave with me? Your life was originally in my hands! However, I did not want to kill your so-called brother today. I only wanted to teach him a lesson and let him remember what race he is. I wanted to let him know that he cannot forget who he is!”
As Shentu Nantian spoke, his hand grabbed towards Jiang Xiaorou, “If you want to blame anyone, blame your own destiny!”
Shentu Nantian’s hands were injected with a trace of Yuan Qi as he pressed towards Jiang Xiaorou’s head. He wanted to strike Jiang Xiaorou’s mind. Once that happened, Jiang Xiaorou would lose her sanity, but her body would remain alive. Using a living body when refining elixirs gave the best results.
