Chapter 398: Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect
“Broken yet again, hahahaha!” While Shentu Nantian was trying his best to contain his anger, Su Jie began laughing in a very exaggerated and loud manner at the perfect time, “This disciple I took in sure is amazing! He has given me such a huge surprise in this Desolate Heaven technique tea session, hahahaha!”
Su Jie’s laughter was like a chanting curse that made Shentu Nantian irritated.
Yi Yun was about to begin breaking the fourth small group array while Song Ziyue, who was in the middle of the array, looking dejected, had lost all of his will to fight.
Without a doubt, if this carried on, Yi Yun would definitely completely crack the Five Elemental Bone Array.
Shentu Nantian naturally did not want to see this result.
Shentu Nantian was already treating Yi Yun as the enemy, and suspected the feelings Lin Xintong had for him. Under this situation, how could he allow Yi Yun to carry on stealing the show?
“Everyone, it looks like there is no point left in this showdown.” Shentu Nantian suddenly stood up, “Junior Brother Yun’s Desolate Heaven technique is outstanding. Ziyue, keep your array and admit defeat!”
Yi Yun stopped his hands and turned around to look at Shentu Nantian.
At that moment, Song Ziyue seemed to recover from his dumbstruck state. Every second he spent in the square was a grilling moment for him.
“I admit defeat!”
Song Ziyue gritted his teeth as he said so. Since he was inferior, he had no qualms in admitting defeat.
As he began to dismantle the array, Lin Ziyan, who was opposite Yi Yun, also stopped her Guanyin Flower Picking Hand.
From the moment Yi Yun began cracking the array till now, only about 150 seconds had passed. Lin Ziyan had only completed 80-90% of her Guanyin Flower Picking Hand, but at that moment, there was no need to carry on using it.
If it was to be decided who ended up the worst after the showdown between Song Ziyue and Yi Yun, it was naturally Song Ziyue, while Lin Ziyan was caught in the crossfire.
She originally hoped to use the Guanyin Flower Picking Hand to compete with Song Ziyue. It would have been a spectacular showdown of high-level techniques that would have been the center of attention, and she would have gained fame and glory from it.
However, because of Yi Yun’s appearance, she ended up in such an awkward situation.
“Junior Brother Yun has good ability. I underestimated you.”
Lin Ziyan said as she gave Yi Yun a deep glance before she left the square.
With Song Ziyue admitting defeat and Lin Ziyan leaving the square, there was no reason for Yi Yun to stay behind. As he was preparing to leave the square, Shentu Nantian suddenly said, “Junior Brother Yun, hold on a moment.”
Yi Yun halted and looked towards Shentu Nantian.
“Now, with Junior Brother Yun just coming on stage, why the hurry to leave?” As Shentu Nantian spoke, he left the seats of honor and began walking towards the center of the square slowly.
Seeing Shentu Nantian’s actions, everyone was stunned. What was Shentu Nantian going to do?
“He is not letting Junior Brother Yun leave. It cannot be that he wants to compete with Junior Brother Yun in the Desolate Heaven technique, right?”
A junior from the younger generation said in a speechless manner.
“It cannot be. If that was the case, then Shentu Nantian would really be too shameless.”
Shentu Nantian did not focus on the Desolate Heaven technique, but as many things intersected with one another, his situation was pretty similar to Lin Xintong’s.
Shentu Nantian’s age was slightly more than two times that of Yi Yun’s age. Was it not bullying if an adult were to compete with a child’s Desolate Heaven technique?
“It cannot be. Shentu Nantian has to consider his own background. It is impossible for him to do something as unbecoming as that.”
For a proud person like Shentu Nantian, how could he want to compete with Yi Yun? This was because, even if he won, he would still be mocked by the Lin family’s upper echelons.
“Junior Brother Yun, I saw you breaking the array easily just now. You should not have expended too much of your energy, right?” Shentu Nantian had already walked into the center of the square and was just ten steps away from Yi Yun.
Yi Yun held his breath and a pair of black eyes could be seen through the mask as it quietly looked at Shentu Nantian.
He did not express the hate in his heart, but the coldness and indifference in his eyes made Shentu Nantian frown slightly.
This kid’s pair of eyes are really annoying…
No matter how Shentu Nantian looked at Yi Yun, he did not like him. It was to the point where he really wanted to dig out Yi Yun’s eyes.
“No!” Yi Yun answered calmly. He had only taken about a hundred seconds to crack the Five Elemental Bone Array, and since it was through a trick, he had not consumed that much of his mental energy.
“That is good.” Shentu Nantian smiled. How could he let Yi Yun walk off stage while still being in the limelight?
Of course, Shentu Nantian could not compete with Yi Yun directly; hence, he had thought up a method.
“Junior Brother Yun’s accomplishment in the Desolate Heaven technique is outstanding, and you have only showed us the tip of the iceberg. I believe that everyone has not yet seen enough. If Junior Brother Yun were to leave now, it would be quite a shame.”
Yi Yun remained silent. He knew that Shentu Nantian had most likely thought of something.
He could feel Shentu Nantian’s hostility towards him. It was ironic that, even with a change of identity, he had once again formed a grudge with Shentu Nantian.
“I am not sure if Junior Brother Yun has ever heard of the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect?”
Yi Yun did not understand why Shentu Nantian asked the question. However, the surrounding people paused slightly. The Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect was an extinct sect. It existed even earlier than the Daming Temple.
The greatest aspect of the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect was its Desolate Heaven technique.
Back when the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect was in its golden era, it had produced many famous Desolate Heaven Masters.
The Desolate Heaven technique heritage of the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect was a system of its own. It was extremely difficult to learn and extremely profound. Only those with extraordinary talent could learn the Desolate Heaven technique of the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect.
Seeing Yi Yun shake his head, Shentu Nantian smiled, “It is alright if you do not know. Speaking of this, back when my family clan’s elders explored an ancient mystic realm, they happened to find a Desolate Heaven technique recipe left behind by the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect.”
“The Desolate Heaven techniques recorded inside the recipe were not anything spectacular, but they can still showcase my Shentu family clan’s Desolate Heaven technique abilities. And coincidentally, with my abilities, I can barely refine it… Hence, I was thinking of showing it to everyone. You can think of it as me adding some fun for this Desolate Heaven technique tea session.”
Upon him saying those words, people began to look at each other. How could an ancient Desolate Heaven technique recipe left behind by the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect be as unremarkable as Shentu Nantian described?
The Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect’s Desolate Heaven technique was much more abstruse than mainstream Desolate Heaven techniques. And Shentu Nantian previously said that this recipe was found in an ancient mystic realm. The Great Empress’s recipe that could cure Lin Xintong of her natural Yin Meridians might have come from that mystic realm!
Furthermore, Shentu Nantian also said that he could barely refine it. This made many become secretly alarmed. Shentu Nantian’s Desolate Heaven technique might have been even better than they expected.
“This Shentu Nantian is really a genius! There is no need to talk about his ability in martial arts, but who would have thought that his accomplishments in the Desolate Heaven technique would also be extraordinary. He might even have even dabbled in arrays and elixir refinement.”
The younger generation of the Lin family were all secretly alarmed. Although many of them did not like Shentu Nantian, they had to admit that it was indeed well-deserved for him to be called a peerless son of Heaven in the Tian Yuan world.
If Lin Xintong was able to join up her naturally terminated meridians and become a peerless Great Empress, then the only person qualified to be her partner in cultivation intercourse would probably be Shentu Nantian.
“Junior Brother Yun, I previously said that I could barely refine that ancient recipe. Hence, I need others to help me… Junior Brother Yun’s accomplishments in the Desolate Heaven technique are extraordinary, and is in line with my requirements, so… how about cooperating with me?”
When Shentu Nantian asked him, Yi Yun finally understood what Shentu Nantian was thinking.
Shentu Nantian had said so much, but the main reason was to put him down.
Despite talking about cooperating to refine a desolate bone relic, there was probably a trap within!
How could Yi Yun know an ancient recipe left behind by the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect? Shentu Nantian could do something during the process to make Yi Yun embarrass himself very easily!
And at that moment, Shentu Hai and Shentu Feng, who were originally sitting with Shentu Nantian, walked to the center of the square while laughing.
They had previously received a Yuan Qi voice transmission from Shentu Nantian. It was time for them to make a move.
“Junior Brother Yun, let us do it together. If it is just you alone, it might be too difficult. With the three of us joining hands, it will be done smoothly.”
As the two spoke, they stood to the left and right of Yi Yun.
“How about it, Junior Brother Yun? This would be a rare experience for you.” Shentu Nantian gently touched the interspatial ring on his finger as he still hung a genial smile on his face.
“This fellow sure is a hypocrite…” With this thought in mind, a smile, suffused with a trace of mockery, appeared on Yi Yun’s face. However, under the mask, his smile could not be seen by others.
Since he understood what Shentu Nantian was planning to do, Yi Yun wanted to see what trick Shentu Nantian was up to.
Originally with Yi Yun’s personality, he would not try to steal the show. However, today, his purpose was to mess things up, so how could he miss out on the fun?
