Chapter 365: The Yang brothers’ idea
The Myriad Empyreal King’s expression turned ugly when the Shepherd Boy pointed at him with the sword, “You think I am like them?”
That night, amongst those who fought for the Shentu family clan, the Myriad Empyreal King was the strongest. Following behind him were Elder Su and Elder Mo, the two elders who were not in the family.
As for the other ten elders, and legendary experts, they were the weakest.
The two people the Shepherd Boy killed were two of the ten normal elders.
Hence, although the Shepherd Boy seemed overwhelmingly strong, the Myriad Empyreal King was not scared out of his wits by the Shepherd Boy. A dense deathly aura emitted from his body as he opposed the Shepherd Boy!
“Things do not look optimistic…” Several kilometers away, Shentu Nantian’s expression had turned ugly. The events of tonight had gone far beyond his original expectations.
The large array he had set up, along with all the experts he had gathered here to await the enemy falling into the trap, was all foiled by the Shepherd Boy alone. He had even killed two people!
Now, it was still a mystery if the Myriad Empyreal King could actually defeat the Shepherd Boy!
If he could not prevent the Shepherd Boy from leaving today, then when Shentu Nantian returned to his family, those who were at odds with him in the family would attack him with this.
Even in the Shentu family clan, there was competition over power and benefits. Shentu Nantian’s existence naturally harmed the prospects of others.
“Young Master Nantian, that… Should we take this opportunity to get rid of Yi Yun?”
At that moment, Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng came to the Shentu Nantian’s side and suggested this without much confidence.
The way Shentu Nantian had previously done things was still fresh in their minds. Especially so for Yang Dingkun. Just after Jiang Xiaorou escaped, he had interjected, hoping to redirect the spear head from King Chu onto Yi Yun. However, with a shout from Shentu Nantian, his eardrums had burst, resulting in him bleeding. He himself even knelt down at that moment.
Back then, Yang Dingkun even thought that he was dead.
Against Shentu Nantian, Yang Dingkun had a psychological scar, so he did not dare to speak boldly.
However, he had to suggest this matter at that moment. From the current situation, there was a possibility that the Shepherd Boy would be able to rescue Yi Yun!
They had offended Yi Yun badly, and had done all sorts of things to add insult to injury. If they did not take this opportunity to get Yi Yun killed. Then, if something was to happen in the future…
Previously, Yi Yun’s talent had appalled Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng. In the four kingdoms’ alliance tournament, Yi Yun had defeated Feng Lin, then Bai, and finally he battered the elites of the Yun Long Divine Kingdom. He was almost non-human!
Although Yi Yun was already crippled now, they would rather be safe than sorry!
Seeing the Shepherd Boy and his heaven defying methods, what if he had the means to heal Yi Yun?
Even if he could not be completely healed, just being partially healed would be more than enough to torture the two brothers!
Furthermore, even if Yi Yun was completely crippled, he could still find his elder sister and send someone from the upper echelons of the Desolate race to kill the two of them. It would be as easy as child’s play!
Just thinking about it made Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng feel fear. Hence, they had to muster up their courage and talk to Shentu Nantian!
“Oh?” Shentu Nantian’s voice turned cold. “Do you think that my Shentu family clan is destined to be defeated in tonight’s battle?”
Yi Yun could only be saved by the Shepherd Boy if Shentu Nantian’s plan failed!
Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng immediately shivered. Their faces turned white with fright. Shentu Nantian’s had mood swings, and once his anger burst out, no one would know what their outcomes would be.
“No, we do not mean that. How could that happen… It is just…”
Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng were sweating profusely. They wanted to force out an explanation, but seeing Shentu Nantian’s cold eyes, their voices began to tremble.
Facing Shentu Nantian was like a mortal facing a powerful desolate beast. They could lose their lives at any moment.
Although Shentu Nantian’s eyes were cold, he was not against Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng’s proposal.
In fact, Shentu Nantian did not think that the Shepherd Boy had any means of healing Yi Yun.
That was a Seven Noxious Divine Yin Pill, which had an extremely strong frost power to it. That sort of pill was originally used by peak-Sages for them to cultivate in the frost ice laws. It could be used to increase one’s insight in the laws and deepen one’s cultivation level.
The medicinal properties of a pill used by peak-Sages were extremely violent. What sort of outcome would happen when used on a Yuan Foundation warrior?
Furthermore, the frost toxins had already been in Yi Yun’s body for ten days. Even a god could not save him now.
However, he still agreed with Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng. There was nothing wrong with being meticulous and making sure to prevent any possible future troubles.
Shentu Nantian slightly sighed and spoke to Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng, “What you say does make sense. You must rid the roots of everything to prevent any future trouble. You can enter the chamber and kill Yi Yun!”
When Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng heard this, they were dumbfounded. They had originally thought that Shentu Nantian would send someone from the Shentu family clan to finish Yi Yun. They never expected him to send them.
Yi Yun may be a cripple now and nothing to be feared. In fact, they really wished to kill Yi Yun, and do all sorts of terrible things to him, to enjoy the pleasure of revenge.
However, the critical point was that the Shepherd Boy was still up in the sky!
The Shepherd Boy’s power was unfathomable. Such an expert had great senses. When he discovered that they entered the array’s core, couldn’t the Shepherd Boy just blow some air at them to turn them to ash?
Wasn’t this courting death?
“Hmph! What a bunch of cowards. The Heaven Earth Empyreal Array’s array disk is in my hand. With the array disk, I can send you directly into the array core!”
“There is a barrier in the Heaven Earth Empyreal Array’s core. Although the Shepherd Boy can ignore the Heaven Earth Empyreal Array’s laws and still use the Power of Desolates, the array core has a strong shield that separates it from the outside world! No matter what laws are understood, one cannot ignore this energy shield.”
“Therefore, if the Shepherd Boy wants to enter the array core, he needs to use brute force. It is not that the Shepherd Boy cannot break through the barrier, but the crux of the issue is that he still needs to face the Myriad Empyreal King!”
“The Myriad Empyreal King is not necessarily weaker than the Shepherd Boy, so how would the Shepherd Boy dare divert his attention to break through the barrier while in battle? Even with the Shepherd Boy’s strength, he will need several seconds to break through this barrier! And these few seconds are enough for a powerful person like the Myriad Empyreal King to do several things!”
Shentu Nantian explanation seemed reasonable.
Although Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng were still afraid, they did not feel like it was something that would be certain to send them to their deaths.
In fact, Yang Dingkun even wanted to ask, since it is so safe, why do you not do it yourself?
Of course, he absolutely did not have the guts to say that.
“What are you waiting for? Do you want me to personally kill the ant-like Yi Yun?”
Shentu Nantian’s voice turned cold, causing Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng to jump up with fright. They did not dare act against Shentu Nantian’s orders.
At that moment, they were lamenting in their hearts. They hoped that whatever Shentu Nantian said was true and that he had not deceived them. They really had nothing better to do but to give themselves something to do.
Even if Yi Yun might one day recover from his injuries, it was still better than facing the Shepherd Boy now.
“Do not worry. I will not send you to your deaths. The Shepherd Boy and Myriad Empyreal King are going to fight soon. I will send you into the array core when their battle is at its greatest intensity!”
“At that moment, the Shepherd Boy will have absolutely no time to attend to other things, otherwise, it would just be suicide!”
Shentu Nantian confidently said. Yang Dingkun and Yang Yuefeng looked at each other, lamenting in their hearts. At that moment, it seemed like they could only bite down hard and do it.
