Chapter 399: Refining Bone
Following Shentu Nantian’s suggestion, everyone’s gazes landed on Yi Yun.
Quite a considerable number of people did not understand what Shentu Nantian’s was thinking, nor did they know that Shentu Nantian already disliked Yi Yun because of Lin Xintong’s special feelings for Yi Yun.
“Yi Yun, you must not agree to it. Shentu Nantian is going to try and give you a hard time on purpose.”
At that moment, Lin Xintong’s Yuan Qi transmission rang in Yi Yun’s ears. Lin Xintong had previously heard from Su Jie that Yi Yun had a great feud with Shentu Nantian, which was why he had to change his identity.
“Yi Yun, you have not even heard of the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect before. You definitely will not understand the Desolate Heaven technique heritage of the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect. You do not know that the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect’s heritage is different in many ways compared to the Tian Yuan world’s Desolate Heaven technique. If you were to agree, you would fall into Shentu Nantian’s schemes!”
“Oh? Differences in the heritage systems?” Yi Yun thought and looked towards Lin Xintong. He felt a strand of warmth surging to his heart when Lin Xintong used her Yuan Qi to inform him.
However, about the heritage systems being different, Yi Yun did not care at all. Ignoring the Desolate Heaven technique heritage of the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect, Yi Yun did not even know much about the mainstream Desolate Heaven technique heritage of the Tian Yuan world. Especially the aspects of energy sealing, Yi Yun only knew the Mystic Crystal Hand and the Small Thousand Seal.
Just with these two techniques, how much could Yi Yun understand the mainstream Desolate Heaven technique heritages?
Hence, it did not affect Yi Yun much even if the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect’s heritage contained some mysteries.
“Thank you Miss Lin, but… I still want to try…”
Yi Yun’s words made Lin Xintong’s eyebrows frown. “Yi Yun, I know you have a feud with Shentu Nantian and want to take some revenge, but now is not the time. You are too weak, if you act on emotion, you will only suffer.”
Yi Yun laughed and said, “It is just a competition in the Desolate Heaven technique and not a life and death battle. Even if I were to suffer, it will be nothing much. I will just be embarrassed. After all, I am a newcomer to the Lin family and I am not an important figure, so what if I am embarrassed?”
“If I were to be afraid of losing now, and not accept Shentu Nantian’s challenge, then that means I am already afraid. Today’s competition does not risk my life, and if I were to reject it, then in the future, when I face a life-death blood battle with him to settle our feud, there might only be me and Shentu Nantian. There will be no one to protect me. At that time, can I still reject it?”
Yi Yun’s rhetorical question stumped Lin Xintong.
Indeed, when someone wants to kill you, would they ask you if you wanted it or not?
Compared to the situation of a life and death battle, the Desolate Heaven technique showdown right now was nothing.
Upon understanding this, Lin Xintong stared deeply at Yi Yun. She did not know what Yi Yun’s expression was like under the mask. She found it hard to believe that the youth she had met in the Cloud Wilderness would reach this point, step by step maturing along the way.
Besides, he was only fifteen years old, but he already had a blood feud with Shentu Nantian. However, despite that, he was still unperturbed and could still make such a calm analysis with such courage.
“Yi Yun… you are right. I was the one being narrow-minded, but I need to remind you that Shentu Nantian is a merciless and narrow-minded person. Even if he does not know your real identity, he might still have murderous intent for you.”
“Yes, I understand.” Yi Yun nodded. “Miss Lin, do not worry, I have a sense of proportion.”
As Yi Yun said that, he turned his gaze towards Shentu Nantian.
“Hey, kid, are you agreeing or not?” Shentu Hai had a mocking smile on his face as he provoked Yi Yun.
Yi Yun completely ignored Shentu Hai and cupped his hands and said, “Thanks to Young Master Nantian’s appreciation, you have given me this opportunity to train my Desolate Heaven technique standard. Of course, I have no reason to reject it.”
Yi Yun said this very “sincerely” while Shentu Hai and Shentu Feng nearly burst out laughing.
This retard! This was probably the type of person who would help you count the money received from selling him?
“Hahaha, Junior Brother Yun is so candid. Good! Then let us begin.”
As Shentu Nantian spoke, he took out a disk array from his interspatial ring. This disk array was about five feet wide and squarish. There were runes densely engraved in the middle, forming a perfect circle.
An array disk that gave off the meaning of perfect harmony.
With Shentu Nantian in the middle, Yi Yun, Shentu Hai and Shentu Feng stood around him in a triangular fashion.
The surrounding disciples of the Lin family were looking at the four people in the middle of the square.
Although they did not know about Shentu Nantian’s feelings for Yi Yun, they knew that Shentu Nantian’s goal in taking out the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect’s recipe was to flaunt the Shentu family clan.
Maybe it was because Yi Yun had smacked Song Ziyue’s face so terribly that Shentu Nantian had to stand forward to save the Shentu family clan’s reputation.
Under this situation, how could Shentu Nantian let Yi Yun shine in this cooperative bone refining process?
Letting Shentu Feng and Shentu Hai go onstage at the same time to cooperate with Yi Yun was probably to put Yi Yun down.
“Junior Brother Yun sure has guts. However, he has never even heard of the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect, yet he still wants to cooperate with Shentu Nantian. In a while, he will probably embarrass himself.”
In the surrounding pavilions, some of the disciples of the Lin family were worried for Yi Yun.
“Having too much courage can be a fault, to the point of being stupid… For this matter, if it were me, I would definitely not agree to it.”
People began discussing and at that moment, Shentu Nantian took out 12 desolate bones from his interspatial ring. Once these 12 desolate bones appeared, they shone in the air.
The 12 bones were either crystal clear, like jade, or simple and plain. They faintly seemed to create small Yuan Qi swirls around them.
These bones were not ordinary, that could be seen at a glance!
“Oh? Amongst these desolate bones, it seems like some of them are primordial strain’s bones!”
Some of the Desolate Heaven Masters that were present had extraordinary vision. Although they could not recognize what desolate beast the bones came from, they could still tell their grade. Normal desolate bones definitely did not contain such strong Power of the Desolates.
“Could it be that Shentu Nantian already has the ability to refine primordial strain bones?”
Thinking of this, many of them were alarmed. Shentu Nantian was only 30 years old. To warriors with long lifespans, he was currently a junior. If he could refine primordial strain desolate bones at this age, would that not be remarkable?
“That is not the case…” At that moment, an old man shook his head and disagreed. “Those are not primordial strain desolate bones but desolate bones processed using an ancient mystic technique. It almost increases a desolate bone’s grade by one grade. It should be a mystic technique belonging to the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect!”
In the Lin family, there were Elders from the older generation who had previously read books regarding the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect’s mystic techniques, even though they did not understand the Heaven Desolate Ancient Sect’s heritage system.
“Increase a desolate bone’s grade?” People were shocked. There was such a method?
“Indeed, but the effects are not as great as you think. This is because one has to pay a price to increase a desolate bone’s grade.”
“Actually, with the Shentu family clan’s heritage, they are not lacking in desolate bones of primordial strains. However, Shentu Nantian had used such a roundabout method because, with his ability, it would probably be quite difficult for him to handle several primordial strain desolate bones at the same time.”
As the old man spoke, Shentu Nantian waved his hand and the 12 desolate bones split into three groups. They then shot towards Shentu Hai, Shentu Feng, and Yi Yun!
These desolate bones landed in the hands of the three, with each having four pieces.
“This…” People were alarmed. “Is Shentu Nantian thinking of getting these teenage juniors to extract the Power of Desolates from these desolate bones?”
It would probably be considered too difficult to extract the Power of Desolates from this grade of desolate bones for Yi Yun and company.
At that moment, Shentu Nantian smiled and said, “Can the three of you please help me. Do not worry. Soon, I will set up an array, so that your mental energies will increase, enough for you to extract the Power of Desolates from these desolate bones!”
