Chapter 361: Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill
When Shentu Nantian said this, the surrounding people were alarmed. They did not know what he would do to Yi Yun. However, there was no doubt that it would be extremely terrifying.
People looked at the pill in Shentu Nantian’s hand, the icy air around it made people shudder with fear!
Shentu Nantian then said to Yi Yun, “To me, you are like an ant. You are not worthy of mention. Your thoughts of killing me are as funny as a mortal beggar telling a human Sage that he will replace him. Besides, you will die in ten days. I will especially prepare a trap for the members of the Desolate race that will come to save you, preventing them from saving you.”
“However… even so, I will not give you any chance of revenge. The pill in my hand is called the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill!”
As Shentu Nantian spoke, he forced open Yi Yun’s mouth. His face was still covered with a smile, but the smile was one of ferocity and cruelness.
“The Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill is an extremely expensive pill. You should find it worth your while eating it as a dead person.”
“In ten days time, the frost toxins will invade your organs. You seem to be cultivating pure Yang laws? Haha, from today onwards and in ten days time, your pure Yang cultivation will completely waste away. Even a God cannot save you! At that moment, taking ten thousand steps back, even if you are actually saved by the Desolate race, you will still become a cripple. There is only endless despair waiting for you.”
When Shentu Nantian finished speaking, the faces of the people around him turned ugly. Shentu Nantian had a reached a point that was so vicious that it was difficult to imagine anything worse. Wasting away a warrior’s cultivation level was worse than just killing him.
After being accustomed to the strength and status that martial arts brought to them, many warriors would rather die than have their cultivation levels waste away.
Furthermore, Shentu Nantian was using Yi Yun to lure his sister back, even after feeding him a poison pill, yet the Desolate race would be trying to save a cripple. His methods were so vicious that it made one’s hair stand on end!
Yi Yun’s mouth was filled with blood. As he looked at Shentu Nantian, he revealed a bitter smile. He had never hated a person so much in his entire life. In contrast, Lian Chengyu, who had made several attempts on Yi Yun’s life back then, was actually much better than Shentu Nantian!
“It seems like you really hate me? That look in your eyes, Keke! However, what can you do? If you did not have any use, I would have killed you by now… Of course, killing you cannot compare to the way I am handling you in terms of making you suffer.”
Shentu Nantian laughed sinisterly. With a flick of his finger, the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill was shot straight into Yi Yun’s mouth.
“Phew”, the pill was sent all the way into Yi Yun’s stomach.
In the first few seconds, Yi Yun did not feel a thing. However, what followed was that he suddenly felt his body freeze. This pill carried a terrifying frost Qi. After it rushed into his stomach, it rushed straight towards his dantian.
He felt extremely cold.
That terrifying frost Qi rose up from his dantian, and the pure Yang Yuan Qi he originally cultivated, was quickly eroded by it.
Cold, too cold!
Yi Yun’s face turned pale as his body shivered. Surges of frost Qi emanated out from his acupuncture points and pores. The water vapor in the surrounding air condensed, eventually forming ice crystals. A layer of ice froze over Yi Yun’s eyebrows and hair.
He tumbled to the ground as he felt like his blood had frozen over and stopped flowing.
Seeing Yi Yun in such a state, Chu Xiaoran and those who had good relations with Yi Yun felt their hearts ache. Shentu Nantian was inhuman, he was ruthless and unscrupulous, prone to mood swings and had high ambitions!
And Yi Yun would probably end up dying in his hands.
Disasters could not be predicted, who would have thought that the originally high-spirited and promising Yi Yun would become like this in just a matter of days!?
And Yi Yun’s cultivation level was quickly being wasted away. Would the Tai Ah Divine Emperor still bother to save him?
Everyone had a value attached to them.
If it was Cang Yan, Grandmaster Yuehua, or the Tai Ah Divine City’s City Lord, they might be sentimental and take into account the merits which Yi Yun had accomplished. Even though Yi Yun’s cultivation level was now crippled, they would still try their best to protect Yi Yun.
However, the Tai Ah Divine Emperor did not know Yi Yun at all. He had only heard of him, but with the country’s interest in front of him, how could he go against Shentu Nantian for the sake of a hopeless person, who now had his cultivation level crippled?
Now, the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom was counting on the Shentu family clan!
Without any surprises, the Tai Ah Divine Emperor would most likely take it lying down, as if this had never happened…
Just thinking about it made Chu Xiaoran feel a pang of sadness.
At that moment, Shentu Nantian spoke to an elder behind him, “Formulate the edict and inform the world that the beast horde is attacking. Tell the Tai Ah commoners that the legend in their heart, the Tai Ah Divine City, has been lost. Danger will befall even the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom’s lands!”
Shentu Nantian knew that the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom had kept the beast horde a complete secret. However, now there was no need to keep it a secret anymore!
People could guess what Shentu Nantian’s intentions were. He wanted to throw the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom into a panic. As such, the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom’s royal household would have to rely on them even more.
And they would also successfully win the hearts of the people. Their status would rapidly advance in the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom and then, they could justify their action of using the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom as the battlefield for chasing after Jiang Xiaorou.
“This person is vicious and scheming. There is no way to prevent Yi Yun from dying under his hands…” A Tai Ah Divine City proud son of heaven lamented.
A person like Shentu Nantian was a natural-born leader. His viciousness, determination and unscrupulous methods terrified others. No one would dare disobey the commands of such a person.
As such, Shentu Nantian, who did not belong to the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom, had now secured his place in the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom, becoming the person in control of the entire Tai Ah Divine Kingdom.
At that moment, Shentu Nantian carried on, “Arrange for Elder Su and Elder Mo to set up a Heaven Earth Empyreal Array. Place Yi Yun in the middle of the array and wait for the Desolate race to bite at the bait. No matter who comes, kill them all!”
“Elder Su… Elder Mo…”
A few elders looked at each other and felt alarmed, “To invite them to do so… to use Yi Yun as bait… Important people from the Desolate race might not come knowing that there is a trap. If we were to disturb the two of them and make them come over for nothing, that would not be good, right…?”
Elder Su and Elder Mo were guests of the Shentu family clan. They were extremely famous in the western regions. They were existences that were treated as distinguished guests no matter which ancient family clan they went to.
They owed the Shentu family clan relational favors, resulting in them being of service to the Shentu family clan for 300 years, and they only had to do a total of three things.
For example, by inviting Elder Su and Elder Mo to set up the Heaven Earth Empyreal Array, that would be considered as them having done one thing for the Shentu family clan, even if an inferior Desolate race member came.
However, if no one from the Desolate race came, then it would not be considered as one of those things, but it would be a waste of their relational favors.
That was why a few of the elders felt that it was raising a big rumpus. Yi Yun was just a human, who was very weak. Was there really a need to do so?
Shentu Nantian said, “I feel that this little bastard is extremely important to that Jiang girl, and that girl has a very special status amongst the Desolate race. When I release this piece of news, it is very likely that a high-ranking member if the Desolate race will come!”
“The Desolate race has crossed over the Divine Wilderness with a huge scheme. To conjure up such a beast horde is not for the simple task of finding a girl. The Shepherd Boy might not even know of the Jiang girl’s existence!”
“Hence… even if they were to find the Jiang girl, they might not leave immediately. If we can kill some of the upper echelons of the Desolate race, then we can track down the girl by following the clues left behind and capture her!”
“Not only is she extremely important in status, but her blood is also extremely pure. It is invaluable. If we can capture her, not only will it be a great fortuitous opportunity for me, it will also be a golden opportunity for the Shentu family clan. For this, it is a must for us to use Elder Su and Elder Mo!”
“This… Alright, we will follow the young master’s instructions.” The elders retreated and began arranging all the logistics.
Shentu Nantian glanced at Yi Yun and said coldly, “Take him away and lock him up!”
At that moment, Yi Yun’s body was covered in ice. White strands started to appear amongst his originally black hair.
This was one of the effects of the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill.
This pill, as mentioned by Shentu Nantian, was priceless!
Yi Yun did not know how the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill was refined. He guessed that the ingredients were at least from top-grade primordial strains. There might even be several primordial herbs mixed within it.
One had to know that in such a family clan, even primordial true spirits existed. As for a pill, it was not surprising for it to have a portion of a primordial true spirit’s blood mixed in it.
Under normal circumstances, if a Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill was swallowed, with his cultivation level, all of Yi Yun’s meridians and his dantian would be frozen as Shentu Nantian said. Later on, the pure Yang Qi that he cultivated would be slowly eroded by the frosted ice.
At that moment, his meridians would become damaged and his dantian would disappear. With frost toxins in his entire body, his cultivation level would waste away into nothing, and he would become a complete cripple!
This was what Shentu Nantian wanted to see. Although he looked down on Yi Yun, he made it a habit to rid himself of weeds by killing them at their roots. He did not want to see anyone, who had even the tiniest possibility of threatening him, exist in this world.
When Yi Yun was enduring the horrifying icy frost Qi, no one knew that the Purple Crystal Origins in his heart was quietly palpitating. Again and again, the Purple Crystal Origins pulsated with every heartbeat. The frost energy in his body was being subtly absorbed by the Purple Crystal.
If Yi Yun’s body was to become a piece of ice, then the Purple Crystal was like a seed of fire in the middle of the ice, giving him a flicker of warmth and light.
With the Purple Crystal’s energy flowing through his frozen meridians, Yi Yun felt that they were gradually showing signs of recovery.
And after the Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill’s frost energy was absorbed by the Purple Crystal, it was slowly compressed into a lump within the Purple Crystal.
It was a lump of blue ice crystals. It began to condense within the Purple Crystal, slowly becoming larger in size. Not far away from it was the pure Yang spirit.
A lump of frost blue energy and a lump of golden energy were just a distance away from each other in the purple crystal. Although the energies were the complete opposite in nature, they remained distinct from one another and nothing happened.
The Purple Crystal… was still here…
Yi Yun clutched his chest. In his greatest moment of despair, the Purple Crystal had not abandoned him. It gave Yi Yun his last hope.
Indeed, no matter what happened, the Purple Crystal remained in his body, becoming something that Yi Yun could rely on for eternity.
